Contemporary ownership inscription on front flyleaf and titlepage. Light foxing and toning. Very good. In a half morocco and cloth slipcase and chemise. First edition of Haywood's substantial account of the natural and aboriginal history of Tennessee. A judge in Davidson County and one of the pioneering historians of Tennessee, Haywood wrote the companion volume entitled THE CIVIL AND POLITICAL HISTORY OF THE STATE OF TENNESSEE, FROM ITS EARLIEST SETTLEMENT UP TO THE YEAR 1796, also published in 1823. In addition to providing much information about the Indians of Tennessee, the author attempts to demonstrate the relationship of Native Americans to the Caucasian race. He also includes details regarding Mexicans, Hindus, Persians, Peruvians, Cherokees, Chickasaws, and Natchez Indians. "In this book, now exceedingly rare and highly prized, the author has brought together a very large number of curious facts, relating to the origin and character of the natives of his State, prior to the settlement by the whites. He does not favor the hypothesis of great antiquity in the Indian nations of America, and believes in their common origin with the Caucasian race. He describes with great minuteness and care the relics of the race which once inhabited the territory, its utensils, skeletons, crania, and fortifications, most of which he appears to have personally inspected" - Field.

        High-ways and By-Ways; Or Tales of the Roadside, Picked up in the French Province

      London - G. and W. B. Whittaker, 1823. London - G. and W. B. Whittaker, 1823 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce early edition ofHigh-ways and By-Ways; Or Tales of the Roadside, Picked up in the French Province by 'A Walking Gentleman' orThomas Colley Grattan. Dedicated to Washington Irving. Thomas Colley Grattan (1792 - 1864), was an Irish miscellaneous writer. He wrote a few novels, including The Heiress of Bruges (1830); but his best work was Highways and Byways, a description of his Continental wanderings, of which he published three series. In a short time he moved to Paris, where he made the acquaintance of Moore, Washington Irving, Thiers, Branger, Lamartine, and other distinguished literary men, and became a constant contributor to the Westminster Review, Edinburgh Review, The New Monthly Magazine, and other periodicals. He also commenced a serial of his own, which he called The Paris Monthly Review of British and Continental Literature, by a Society of English Gentlemen. No. 1 came out in January 1822, and No. 15 (April 1823) appears to have been the last issue of this magazine. By Washington Irving's advice he reduced to order the memoranda of some of his tours, and submitted the manuscript to four publishing houses of eminence in succession, who all rejected it. This work was Highways and Byways, or Tales of the Roadside, which, on its appearance in 1823, dedicated to Washington Irving, made its author's name widely known both in England and on the continent, and was several times reprinted. The second series of these tales came out in 1825, and the third in 1827. Previous owner's ink inscription to front free endpaper. Condition: Rebacked in quarter calf with original paper covered boards. Externally, sound but withsome wear to extremities and marks to boards. Internally, firmly bound.

        The Age of Bronze

      London - John Hunt, 1823. London - John Hunt, 1823 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A first edition of Byron's savage satirical poem on European politics following the Napoleonic Wars. With watermark (dated 1822). Byron first took his seat in the House of Lords 13 Mar 1809, but left London on 11 Jun 1809 for the Continent. A strong advocate of social reform, he received particular praise as one of the few Parliamentary defenders of the Luddites: specifically, he was against a death penalty for Luddite frame breakers in Nottinghamshire, who destroyed textile machines that were putting them out of work. His first speech before the Lords was loaded with sarcastic references to the benefits of automation, which he saw as producing inferior material as well as putting people out of work. In another Parliamentary speech he expressed opposition to the established religion because it was unfair to people of other faiths. These experiences inspired Byron to write political poems such as Song for the Luddites (1816) and The Landlords' Interest, Canto XIV of The Age of Bronze. Condition: Rebound in paper wraps. Externally smart, with handwritten notes to front board and just some light shelfwear. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright, with some scattered light spotting throughout. Overall:VERY GOOD..

He continued his study of the effect of oblique rays, developed formulations based on a wave conception, and calculated a revised set of wavelengths for the major spectral lines. Thus, his earlier observations of the dark lines in the solar spectrum enabled him to make the highly precise measurements of dispersion: then his use of the wave theory of light allowed him to derive, with suitable simplifications, the general formulation of the grating equation still in use today" (DSB). - Leicht gebräunt und bestoßen, sonst gut erhalten. - DSB 5, 142

        Autograph inscription signed "CMvWeber" to an unidentified male correspondent

      . 53 x 126 mm., cut from the title page of one of Weber's works. Dated Dresden, October 22, 1823. In German (with translation). "Dedicated to the excellent master.... in great haste, in remembrance of his true admirer." Slightly worn and soiled; one vertical crease; portion of inscription abraided and thus illegible.. "A prototypical 19th-century musician-critic, [Weber] sought through his works, words and efforts as performer and conductor to promote art and shape emerging middle-class audiences to its appreciation. His contributions to song, choral music and piano music were highly esteemed by his contemporaries, his opera overtures influenced the development of the concert overture and symphonic poem, and his explorations of novel timbres and orchestrations enriched the palette of musical sonorities. With the overwhelming success of his opera Der Freischütz in 1821 he became the leading exponent of German opera in the 1820s and an international celebrity. A seminal figure of the 19th century, he influenced composers as diverse as Marschner, Mendelssohn, Wagner, Meyerbeer, Berlioz and Liszt." Philipp Spitta et al in Grove online

Exlibris. - Löwenberg 146. - Erste Buchausgabe des geologischen Vergleichs der Gesteine der Alten Welt mit denen der Kordilleren, Humboldts Hauptarbeit über Meteorologie und Geologie. "Er faßte in der Arbeit alles zusammen was er von der Geologie beider Hemisphären wußte, und stellte die transozeanischen Verbindungen von geologischen Formationen auf Grund eigener Beobachtungen dar. Dabei hielt er an manchen Anschauungen Werners fest, z. B. an dem wäßrigen Ursprung von Granit, Porphyr und Gips, wich aber sehr von den Ideen des alten Lehrers ab, wenn es um die Erklärung vulkanischer Vorgänge ging... Kurz nach Erscheinen des Werkes besuchte Charles Lyell Humboldt in Paris. Er war damals sechsundzwanzig Jahre alt und schrieb am 3. Juli 1823 an seinen Vater: 'Er (Humboldt) zeigte großes Interesse, als ich ihm die Kritiken unserer Geologen über sein letztes Werk beschrieb, ein Werk, das allein genügt hätte, ihm einen Rang in der Wissenschaft zu verleihen, selbst wenn er nichts anderes veröffentlicht hätte.'"

        Autographed Manuscript Signed

      Geneva, NY: , 1823 Geneva, NY, 1823. unbound. Original detailed autographed manuscript signed, folio, 10 pages (front and back), 13 x 8 inches, Geneva, New York, May 20, 1823 -- an extensive draft describing an invention that was called "a machine for hulking and cleaning clover seed," a device that was granted a patent by the United States Government on March 18, 1824. Burrall explains in detail that his innovation is unique because previous models wasted much of the seed, worked slowly, and ran at a great expense because they required immense power to propel them. "The machine that I am about to describe is free from all the above. It is cheap, simple and durable - may be propelled to advantage, either by hand by horse or water power - it feeds regularly & equally - the seed is beaten or whipped out lightly and briskly, all the light chaff containing no seed is thrown off before it reaches the working part of the mechanism." Much more exceptional content. This manuscript has heavy natural folds, but is still in very good condition. Pioneer, settler, and inventor who owned extensive land in the City of Geneva, Ontario County, New York. Despite holding patents for such successful inventions as the thrashing machine, the corn planter, cooking stove, and corn sheller, it was his association with Joseph Smith that would bring him notoriety. Historians speculate that Smith, the Mormon prophet, acquired use of some of Burrall's lands by the Seneca/Ontario border and on September 22, 1823 found the "certain plates of gold which recorded the true history of the Church of the American continent," the result becoming the Book of Mormon. Joseph Smith's use of clover seed is well documented in John Heinerman's acclaimed books "Joseph Smith and Herbal Medicine" and "Joseph Smith and Natural Foods.

      Egitto 1823 - Tavola incisa all?aquaforte su lastra di rame, inserite nella monumentale opera Description de l?Egypte, II° edizione dal 1820-29 voluta da Luigi XVIII, importante risultato culturale dell?occupazione francese in Egitto per il periodo che va dal 1798 al 1801. Bonaparte decise di invadere queste terre per controllare le vie commerciali verso l?india ed assestare in questo modo un duro colpo all?economia britannica. Durante questa operazione, il Nostro favorì l?attività di numerosi artisti, ingegneri, matematici e naturalisti per registrare e catalogare con estrema precisione le costruzioni e i monumenti egiziani nonché la flora e la fauna. Il risultato di questo immane sforzo, che per la pubblicazione coinvolse quasi duemila tra artisti e tecnici oltre a quattrocento incisori, fu l?opera "Description de l?Egypte, ou recueil des observations et des recherches qui ont été faites en Egypte pendant l?expédition de l?armée française", che offre una globale visione scientifica dell?antico e moderno Egitto, nonché la sua storia naturale. La Description ebbe grande influenza sul movimento orientalista pittorico dell?ottocento e diede un contributo fondamentale alla diffusione dell?Egittologia.
