?Les Patineurs? lithografie vervaardigd rond 1823 door F?r?ol de Bonnemaison te Parijs naar een schilderij van Auguste-Xavier Leprince . Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 25,5 x 34,5 cm. (incl. tekst) Xavier Leprince (1799-1826) exposeerde op de Parijse Salon van 1819 tot 1827. Zijn werk moet bijzonder populair geweest zijn bij fans als koning Karel X en de hertogin van Berry, zoals blijkt uit een gloedvolle recensie van het schilderij waarnaar de prent gemaakt is: ?De winter, met zijn trieste en woeste voorhoofd, schudde zijn besneeuwde haren; het water stopte met stromen; de meren en rivieren werden glad en gepolijst. Vanaf dat moment haastten zich jong en oud, rijk en arm, elegante stedelingen en grove dorpelingen, om gezamenlijk te zwieren op de fragiele spiegel. Welk een verwarring bij deze vreemde ontmoeting. Welk applaus voor de geoefende schaatsers. Welk een boe-geroep voor hen die iedere stap afwisselen met een val. Dit is het schouwspel dat monsieur Leprince ons op zijn schilderij laat zien. Met gemak brengt hij leven, geeft hij beweging aan de vele figuren waarmee de voorstelling gevuld is. De bewolkte en tegelijkertijd transparante lucht, het ijzige oppervlak waarop weerspiegelingen en barsten zeer nauwkeurig worden weergegeven. Al deze details duiden op de kundigheid van de kunstenaar en diens bijzondere aandacht om de natuur in al haar facetten getrouw weer te geven.? Prijs: Euro750,-.

SCOTT, Sir Walter, Bart.
[1823?]. 11 lines on first side only of folded 8vo leaf, integral address leaf with black borders, stamp removed. Paper watermarked K. Whatman, 1821. v.g. Not listed in the Millgate Union Catalogue of Walter Scott Correspondence. A brief letter, in which Scott informs the Solicitor General, 'I find from particular business it will be altogether out of my power to attend the commission today'. He offers no further reason, but adds, '. to be of any use I must get a little acquainted with the mass of materials already given .'. Signed, 'Yours truly Walter Scott'. Although undated, the letter appears to be from the 1820s, when Scott, in his role as a Clerk of Session, was in attendance at a Royal Commission enquiry into the nature of proceedings of the Court of Session. It is not clear what the 'particular business' might be; Scott's uncle died in the January of 1823, and this may have been the cause of his absence from court. If, as seems likely, the letter is dated post-November 1822, then the recipient is Lord John Hope, Solicitor General for Scotland from November 1822 to 1830.

Only edition. The book entitled in Chinese "Hsien-wen-shu", or "Book of Good Lore", containing 200 moral proverbs, was meant to serve as an exercise book for the beginner of Chinese studies. "The learned translator, Mr. Davis, appears, from the preface, to have drawn up his work at Macao, and to have sent home to the library at the India House his manuscript-version for impression: but as the requisite types were not to be found in that institution, it was, at the recommendation of Dr. Wilkins, sent back to Asia" (The Monthly Review 107 [1825], p. 197). Ultimately, the book was printed in Macao, as stated on the bottom of the final leaf (and distributed in England by John Murray). - A few corner defects, otherwise a good copy in a modern period-style binding. - Cordier 1429.

DURAND, Asher B. (1796-1886)
New York: Published for the benefit of the community, 1823. Line engraved portrait above engraved text (a 3-line title, 9 lines of text, plus the imprint). Trimmed close. Sheet size: 6 3/8 x 4 3/4 inches. Very rare, engraved portrait by Asher B. Durand of a noted New York swindler. Asher Durand was hailed as "the most famous engraver in America" and "the father of American landscape painting". His bold clean style was an immediate success, and he consequently produced some of the most important engravings in American print history. The subject of this early American "wanted poster" had married Durand's sister, but deserted her shortly thereafter, prompting the Durand family to uncover his true history. Durand executed this small broadside portrait and privately distributed it in an attempt to shame Manners and prohibit him from harming another young woman. The text continues: "A native of England, was educated a preacher in the Methodist connection from which he was expell'd for his crimes, afterwards became an outlaw'd swindler, fled from Sheffiled, leaving a wife & children & came to the United States, where he soon married again into a respectable family & is extensively known as a lecturer on mneumonics. He is classically educated & in appearance a gentleman, but in fact a most accomplished hypocrite. A volunteer of falsehood, none can be too base for his purpose. He abandoned his second wife without cause of complaint (which led to the discovery of his real character & history) has swindled his best friends, violated the most sacred bonds of honor & affection … [Click Below for Full Description]

[AUTOGRAPH]. MOOR, Edward.
[Autograph letter to Louis Langlès, signed].London, 18 March 1823. 4to. Folded. [4] pp. Autograph letter written in English by the British soldier and Indologist Edward Moor (1771-1848) to Louis Langlès (1763-1824), a leading orientalist (especially for languages of India and the East Indies) and conservator of oriental manuscripts at the Bibliothèque Royale in Paris, now known as the Bibliothèque Nationale de France. Langlès translated and annotated Persian texts about India and wrote or translated many later books on Indian and oriental history and literature. Moor was soldier for the East India Company, but is particularly known for his pioneering work on the Hindu religion, The Hindu pantheon (1810). The present letter served in part as a cover letter accompanying a few books Moor sent to Langlès, both for his own interest and as donations to the Bibliothèque Royale. Most were written by his relatives and friends. Moor was establishing an Oriental Society in London and asks Langlès if he would consent to be made an honorary member of this society. Moor also asks to whether he himself could be accepted as an honorary member of the Asian Society in Paris and asked whether this Society would be willing to help him publish a new work. At the end Moor mentions that he has also included a gift for Vivant Denon, the director of the Louvre, and mentions that he might publish a new edition of his The Hindu pantheon. The letter contains a manuscript note, maybe from Langlès himself, that it was received on 7 April 1823.Upper right corner very slightly frayed, but otherwise in ver … [Click Below for Full Description]

TOOKE, Thomas.
London: John Murray, 1823. 2 volumes, octavo (212 x 134 mm). Mid-19th-century brown half calf, twin red and black morocco labels lettered in gilt to spines, purple pebble-grain cloth sides, light blue endpapers, red speckled edges. Neat pencilled ownership signature to front free endpaper. Leather a little rubbed, small chips to labels of vol. II, light foxing to initial and final leaves otherwise contents clean. A very good copy. Folding printed table in vol. I. First edition of Tooke's first book, occasioned by the price instability throughout the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars and their aftermath. "The work of 1823, Thoughts and Details on the High and Low Prices of the Last Thirty Years, provided the basis for Tooke's monetary thought until and including the publication in 1838 of the first two volumes of his massive treatise The History of Prices" (Arnon, Thomas Tooke: Pioneer of Monetary Theory, p. 58). It was part of the broader corpus of literature which Tooke published from 1823 to 1838 which together comprised "a systematic attempt to collect and analyse as much historical material and statistical information as possible, connected with price changes in England from 1793 onwards: a thorough observation of facts, aimed at understanding the determinants of fluctuations in the domestic price level" (New Palgrave, IV, p. 657).

This copy numbered 541 and with the authentication signature of Prof. Jac. Van Maanen. Contemporary boards, rebacked with cloth and the original calf backstrip laid down. XII, 220, [20], 221-228 pp. First edition of the first pharmacopoeia for the United Kingdom of the Netherlands (which included what is now Belgium). During the French occupation the Netherlands introduced a new modern institutionalized central government that made one general guideline for all apothecaries a logical step.

Every copy was numbered and signed for authenticity.Already in 1815 a commission was installed for the development of the Pharmacopoea Belgica, consisting of the most highly regarded Dutch professors in the medical sciences. The members were, amongst others: Nicolaas Cornelis de Fremery and Gerardus Vrolik. Florentinus Jacobus van Maanen, who signed the books for authenticity, was a medical doctor who worked in The Hague for the ministry of Internal Affairs. Binding rubbed, hinges weak, but internally in very good condition.

KNOX, Robert (1791-1864)
[Edinburgh]: [A. Constable], 1823. The wrappers frayed at spine but in good original state.. Offprint pamphlet, octavo, title-page, 9pp, with an engraved anatomical plate; original blue wrappers stab-sewn. Very rare. Although excerpted from the Edinburgh Philosophical Journal, this is a separately published and individually paginated offprint with a new title-page, with "Anatomical" in the drop-title misspelled (but correct in the Journal) and amended in ink by Knox. While Worldcat locates just a single copy of this genuinely separate issue, this example happens also to be of very special interest since it was the copy presented by Knox to Baron Cuvier, the great French naturalist, who was in fact responsible for the taxonomic name of the New Holland Cassowary, "Casuarius Novae Hollandiae, Cuv.". Knox has inscribed the title-page "To Monsieur The Baron Cuvier Perpetual Secretary to the Institute of France &c. &c &c With the Author's respects". In what is in fact a pair of papers published here Knox compares the New Holland Cassowary with the Indian Cassowary, finding substantial differences and particularly in the trachea, where a "large membranous bag", he speculates, may have enabled "the bird to swim, and so preserve life amidst the extensive marshes composing central New Holland, and to escape also from those sudden inundations to which Australasia is generally exposed". Really? "In differing so singularly and mysteriously from the analogous structure of birds [of other places]... it fully confirms the opinions of some naturalists, that the living productions of Austr … [Click Below for Full Description]

JANSEN, John
Athens, Pennsylvania, 1823. 16mo. Measuring 3.75" x 6". Quarter brown leather with marbled paper boards and leather catches. 48pp. Approximately 3,500 handwritten words. Portions of the marbled paper eroded with age-toning and bumped corners, good or better. A farmer's daily diary from 1822 through 1823 in Athens, Pennsylvania. The farmer, John Jansen, worked tending apple orchards, growing potato crops, and raising and caring for a wide array of traditional farm animals. Each document goes over Jansen's daily routine pruning the orchard trees, "grinding" the apples to make hard cider, or dealing with the farm animals. Jansen kept a record of what he sells and buys and to whom, in most cases other farmers trading wheat or animals. On a few occasions, Jansen writes about, "being drunk at home," or consuming too much cider, as seemed common during the early 1800s when alcoholic production was on the rise. Added some time later are handwritten ink descriptions of the diary's contents, "Diary of father of Marion Jansen," with the woman's birth date and location. A responsibly representational daily account of a farmer from Pennsylvania in the early 1820s. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Vulpius, Christian August, Hrsg.).
Weimar, Landes-Industrie-Comptoir, 1811-1823. Vollständige Reihe in erster Ausgabe. Reichhaltige Sammlung von Wissenswertem aus Gegenwart und Vergangenheit, kulturhistorischen Merkwürdigkeiten und sonderbaren oder okkulten Begebenheiten, die für die beginnende "Volksbildung" von kaum zu überschätzender Bedeutung war. Noch vor den 'Kosmosvorlesungen' Alexander von Humboldts, die als kultureller Höhepunkt des Jahres 1826 in Berlin galten, und noch vor Strahlheims rein historisch angelegter 'Geschichte unserer Zeit' (1826-1830) versucht diese Reihe, ebenfalls populär gestaltet, ein verständliches Bild der Vergangenheit auf der Grundlage kulturhistorischer Themen zu entwerfen und den Blick auch auf anderes Denken, andere Sitten und andere Lebensgrundlagen zu lenken. Hier begann, wie mit den oben erwähnten, die Emanzipation des Bürgertums, das ihm später – neben den ökonomischen Faktoren – die Übernahme der politischen Verantwortung in Deutschland ermöglichte. Viele der Beiträge stammen von Vulpius. "Es ist eine sehr wahre, obgleich eben nicht erfreuliche Bemerkung, die man im practischen Leben oft macht, daß nämlich unsere Mitwelt immer die Vorwelt vergißt, oder sie doch sehr wenig kennt. So viele Mühe sich auch die Geschichte gab und noch giebt, die merkwürdigsten Thatsachen für die Nachwelt aufzuzeichnen, so wenig wirkt dies doch gemeiniglich auf uns, und so sauer wird es oft . ein historisches Factum richtig zu entwickeln und zu bewahren. Gewöhnlich beschäftigt sich die Historie nur mit dem großen Gange der Weltbegebenheiten und mit der politischen Geschichte der Völker und … [Click Below for Full Description]

With 9 engraved plates, 2 double page in the first volume, and 9 engraved plates, 4 double-page in the second volume, all plates finely coloured by hand. Contemporary half calf, gold-tooled spine. 199, [1]; 211, [1] pp. Rare first edition of this nicely illustrated work on the history, customs, traditions and costumes of Buenos Aires and Paraguay. Ferdinand Denis (1798-1890) was a French consul who decided to seek his fortune in South America. He left Le Havre in 1816, traveled for several years through, amongst others, Brasil, Argentina, Paraguay and Chile, but was just as poor when he returned to France in 1819. In the years that followed he wrote many books on his experiences in South America, the present work being one the more rare ones today. In 1861 he was appointed librarian of the Sainte-Geneviève library in Paris, a post he held until near the time of his death. Nepveu published a series of books with similar descriptions of different countries and regions of the world. In total 25 regions and countries were dealt with, starting with La Chine en miniature by Breton de la Martinière in 1811 and ending with the present work in 1823.Slightly foxed. Corners slightly bumped, some minor wear along the extremities. Otherwise in very good condition. Numa Broc, Amérique, p. 113; Quérard II, 477; Sabin 19545; not in Chadenat.
