        Les Jsles Borromées

      1823. La veduta propone uno degli scorci incantati del lago Maggiore. Il viaggiatore "C'est là qu'il peut contempler à son aise les scènes magiques et variées que la nature lui présente comme encadrées dans un magique tableau". Al centro l'Isola Bella si eleva sulle altre isole. A sinistra l'Isola dei Pescatori o Superiore, "l'humble village de pecheurs qui est assis sur sa croupe, contraste heureusement avec le magnifique palais qui couronne sa brillante voisine".Più lontana l'Isola Madre formata da sette terrazze e coronata dall'ampio palazzotto. "L'Isola Madre, parée toute l'année de sa brillante verdure, offre l'image d'un printems perpétuel; le climat y est si doux, que l'oranger en plein air n'y redoute pas le les rigueurs de l'hiver". Più in lontananza appresso la riva di Pallanza si nota l'Isolino San Giovanni. mm 194x275

        Journal of a Horticultural Tour...

      1823. NEILL, Patrick. Journal of a Horticultural Tour through some parts of Flanders, Holland, and the north of France, in the autumn of 1817. xvi, 574, [2] pp. Illustrated with 7 black & white engraved plates, two of which are fold-out plans, by W.H. Lizars after John Hay; 8 illustrations in text. 8vo., 229 x 142 mm, bound in original brown boards with paper label on spine. Uncut. Edinburgh: Bell & Bradfute, 1823. |~||~||~||~||~||~| First Edition. Neill undertook his tour of the Continent with fellow Caledonian Horticultural Society members John Jay, Edinburgh planner, and James MacDonald, the chief gardener at Dalkeith Park to the Duke of Buccleuch. Their goal was to trade techniques and seeds with other horticulturalists in Northern Europe and to bring new fruits and vegetables back into Scotland. They traveled in areas under French control which had, until recently, been inaccessible to Britons. The Society wanted to establish an Experimental Garden upon their return where "the fruits of [their] labors" could be "duly reaped." While this did not happen as they expected, this book provides considerable detail of the many gardens, nurseries and markets that they visited. Some light foxing to plates, joint starting, spine label worn, boards rubbed, but overall a good copy, uncut, in original boards.

        Presumption! Or The Fate of Frankenstein. This Evening, Tuesday, Juy 29th, 1823. Will be presented (for the SECOND TIME) an entirely new Romance of a peculiar interest. Theatre Royal, English Opera House, Strand

      1823. THE SECOND PERFORMANCE OF THE FIRST ENGLISH PRODUCTION. Printed letterpress playbill/broadside, 13" x 7-7/8", stab holes to the left margin presumably bound up at one time, some mild foxing but largely clean and bright. The play's author, Richard Brinsley Peake (1792-1847), was a prolific dramatist of the London popular theatre from 1818 until the time of his death. Presumption! appeared at the Lyceum (the English Opera House) in the late summer of 1823. During the autumn of the same year, other serious adaptations of Frankenstein appeared at the Royalty and the Coburg. The part of the Monster was taken by Thomas Potter Cooke (1786-1864), a former sailor who had already earned popular and critical attention by his performance as Ruthven in The Vampire in 1820. The part of Victor Frankenstein was given to James William Wallack (1791-1864), perhaps the most recognized of the Lyceum's coterie of leading men. Presumption! continued to play with great success through the first half of August, always heading the program and followed by other melodramas, farces, or musical comedies. Although Presumption! was not the first successful Gothic melodrama of the 1820s, the popularity it achieved had an immediate effect on London theatre managements. Presumption! had helped to illuminate a public appetite for horrifying stage fantasies with morally unambiguous resolutions. The play was seen by Mary Shelley and her father William Godwin on 29 August 1823 at the English Opera House, shortly after her return to England. Shelley approved of the way the Creature, played by T.P. Cooke, was represented by a series of dashes in the advertising. Mary Shelley had mixed feelings about the play when it opened but, echoing Lord Byron, wrote: "But lo and behold I found myself famous! Frankenstein had prodigious success as a drama and was about to be repeated for the twenty-third night at the English Royal Opera House".

In fine condition. viii, 231 pp., (3 ll., 1 blank l.). *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. The scarcity of this work may be accounted for by the fact that it was a liberal interpretation of the constitutional monarchy under Portugal's first constitution, which had been promulgated and published the previous year. The present work was published in the same year as the @Vilafrancada, a revolt led by the Infante Dom Miguel on 27 May 1823 instigated by his mother the absolutist queen D. Carlota Joaquina, who had refused to swear allegiance to the constitution. The aim of this "golpe", achieved with considerable success, was to quash liberalism and establish a more conservative regime.Ferreira da Costa (1776-1825) a native of Setubal, studied law at Coimbra with the intention of pleasing his father by succeeding him as a lawyer in Setúbal. After his father died, however, Ferreira da Costa decided to study mathematics instead. Until 1814 he accompanied the Ajudante-General in the Peninsular War; elected deputy to the constitutional Côrtes in 1821, in 1823 he began to teach at the Academia Real de Marinha in Lisbon.

Expected center fold, small intact tear, slight overall faded spotting. Faded scripted name to top margin, otherwise very good.A significant fully transcribed example of The Monroe Doctrine, beginning as the main headline on the first page of the National Gazette, and continuing on to the second page. This PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE, by President James Monroe, From the National Intelligence Extra, Washington City, Dec 2, addressed to ""Fellow citizens of the Senate and House of Representatives"" and is followed by the full transcription of the Monroe Doctrine.The Monroe Doctrine is the best known U.S. policy toward the Western Hemisphere. Buried in a routine annual message delivered to Congress by President James Monroe in December 1823, the doctrine warns European nations that the United States would not tolerate further colonization, puppet monarchs or European powers interfering with the nations in the Western Hemisphere, and if the European powers did interfere, then the United States would retaliate with war.A wonderful example of this historically significant doctrine as shown in Newspaper format, dated only 2 days after the official delivery of THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE."

Creuzer (1771-1858), 1810 bis 1812 erstmals in vier Banden erschienen, hier in der völlig umgearbeiteten und durch die von Franz Joseph Mone verfassten zwei Bände zur nordischen Mythologie erweiterten, zweiten Ausgabe. Creuzers Vorlesungen zur Symbolik und Mythologie gehörten zu den am besten besuchten seiner Zeit. Während Creuzers Ansicht einer auf symbolischen Gemeinsamkeiten beruhenden monotheistischen Urreligion beim Religionsphilosophen J. J. Bachofen auf fruchtbaren Boden fiel, fand sie in Johann Heinrich Voss den entschiedensten Gegner ("Antisymbolik", 1824-26). Als "Mythen-Creuzer" stellt er eine Hauptfigur der deutschen Hochromantik dar. Creuzer führte zwei Jahre lang eine heimliche Liebe mit Caroline v. Günderode, beendete dieses Verhältnis jedoch abrupt im Frühjahr 1806, woran die Günderode seelisch zerbrach. - Alle Textbde. mit Rückenrestaurierungen. Tls. stockfleckig. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Planches anatomique du corps humain. Atlas

      Paris: C. de Lasteyrie, 1823-26. The Double Elephant Folio of Anatomy [Mascagni, Paolo (1752-1815).] Antommarchi, Francesco (1789-1838), ed. Planches anatomiques du corps humain executes d’apr?s les dimensions naturelles . . . Double elephant folio atlas. Lithographed part-title leaf, title leaf and 83 lithographed plates (48 black and white, 35 outline) by Charles-Philibert de Lasteyrie (1759-1849), all leaves folded and mounted on guards. Paris: C. de Lasteyrie, [1823-] 1826. 623 x 509 mm. (individual leaves measure 907 x 623 mm. / 35.6875 x 24.5 inches unfolded). 20th century half morocco, paste paper boards, light wear. Discreet repairs to margins of part-title, minor occasional foxing, but very good. Considering that it is among the rarest of all anatomies, and certainly the largest, it is remarkable that two nearly identical editions of Mascagni’s posthumous life-size anatomy were published almost simultaneously. The present lithographed edition was issued between 1823 and 1826. An edition with engraved plates was also published in Pisa under the title Anatomia universa (1823-32). Though the two editions were printed by different processes, the image quality of the two is remarkably similar and it is debatable which is superior from either the artistic or scientific standpoint. Antommarchi’s version, in an homage to Vesalius, includes imaginary landscape backgrounds created for the base of his musclemen; these do not appear in the Italian edition. There are other subtle differences. Antommarchi included letter keys within the images of some of the less-complex plates, eliminating the need for outline plates to those images. He also published more anatomical plates than the Italian edition. The publication history of these two editions is complex and usually misunderstood. The edition we are offering was issued in 15 parts between 1823 and 1826 by the lithographic press of the Comte de Lasteyrie, one of the two founders of lithography in France (an accompanying text volume, not present with this copy, was issued in 1826 and bears the imprint of Lasteyrie’s successor, R. Brégeaut). The atlas, with magnificent plates printed on single broadsheets measuring 970 x 650 mm. uncut, is comparable in size to the double elephant folio edition of Audubon’s Birds of America (1827-38), which measures about 985 x 660 mm. It is without doubt the largest lithographically printed book issued during the incunabula period of lithography. The atlas was issued in both uncolored and colored versions; according to the part-title included with this copy, uncolored fascicles sold for 30 francs each and colored ones for 80 francs each. Choulant, writing in the 1840s when copies of both editions might have remained available from the publishers, states that copies of the completed version with colored plates could be purchased for 150 francs and uncolored copies for 375 francs. Because the plates are so large, in some extant copies of the atlas they are backed with linen and cut for folding with some resulting loss of image. This is not the case here: Each plate is folded horizontally and mounted on a guard, preserving the entire image.

        Confessions of an English Opium-Eater

      London - Taylor and Hessey, 1823 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Thomas De Quincey's famous biographical account of his laudanum addiction. Third edition. First published anonymously in September and October 1821 in the London Magazine, the Confessions was released in book form in 1822, and again in 1856, in an edition revised by De Quincey. Though De Quincey was later criticised for giving too much attention to the pleasure of opium and not enough to the harsh negatives of addiction, The Pains of Opium is in fact significantly longer than The Pleasures. However, even when trying to convey darker truths, De Quincey's language can seem seduced by the compelling nature of the opium experience. Condition: In a decorative calf binding. Externally, sound with slight rubbing and slight cracking to both joints. Internally, firmly bound, generally bright and clean. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED.
