      Veduta 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.

        Précis des Leçons d'Architecture données a l'École Royale Polytechnique.

      Paris, chez l'Auteur, Imprimerie de Firmin Didot, 1823 - 1825. Dos volúmenes en 4to. mayor; 2 hojas, 127 pp. de texto y 32 láminas dobles + 2 hojas, 104 pp. de texto y 32 láminas dobles. Ejemplar con puntos de polilla a lo largo de los dos volúmenes, afectando ligeramente algunas láminas, y con bastantes páginas sueltas, debido al uso continuo del ejemplar en sus dias. Encuadernación de época en media piel. Durand dio su famoso «Curso» en la Escuela Politécnica desde 1795 hasta 1830 promocionando la idea de «grandeur» en los edificios públicos, fruto de la Revolución y de la Escuela de Ledoux y su Círculo. La primera edición apareció entre 1802 y 1805 y se reimprimió durante buena parte del Siglo XIX influyendo decisivamente en varias generaciones de arquitectos, desde sus dias hasta la Bauhaus, por su énfasis en el planteamiento geométrico basado en una cuadrícula modular y en una sistematización formal de los planos, elevaciones y secciones del diseño. A los dos volúmenes de ésta edición, se le añade a veces, como Tercera Parte del «Précis», el volúmen publicado en 1821, también por Didot, titulado «Partie Graphique des Cours d'Architecture faits a l'Ecole Royale Polytechnique depuis sa réorganisation».

        History of the European Languages, or, Researches into the Affinities of the Teutonic, Greek, Celtic, Sclavonic and Indian Nations. By the late..., Professor of Oriental Languages in the University of Edinburgh. With a Life of the Author

      Edinburgh, Printed by George Ramsay and Company, and Hurst, Robinson and Co. in London, 1823. Dos volúmenes en 4to.; CXXVII-468 pp. + V-508 pp. Excelente ejemplar. Encuadernación de la época, en tafilete verde claro, con doble filete en los planos, cantos y contracantos con ruedas doradas y lomera plana, a la inglesa, finamente decorada con nervios y casetones dorados. El escocés de humildísimo orígen, hijo de un pastor de ganado de setenta años, nacido los remotos highlands de Kirkcudbright en Galloway, donde aprendió a leer en las mas penosas condiciones que cabe imaginar. Una historia intelectual impresionante, en la que se suman una inteligencia portentosa, una voluntad indomable y una capacidad de trabajo sin par, lo que le llevaría en 1812 a la Cátedra de Lenguas Orientales de la Universidad de Edinburgo, y a la muerte, quizás por consunción al año siguiente. Sus singularísimos conocimientos filológicos aparecen reunidos en ésta su obra póstuma, publicada bajo los auspicios del Doctor Scot of Costorphine, en la que se rastrean los orígenes de las Lenguas Europeas, siguiendo la inspiración de John Horne Tooke (1736-1812) en sus «Epea Pteroenta, or The Diversions of - Purley», a la vez que se establecen las reglas generales del análisis filológico y se plantea un intrigante estado de la cuestión en los estudios lingüísticos para el periodo comprendido entre el anuncio en 1786 por Sir William James de la afinidad general entre el latín, el sánscrito y el griego, y la publicación definitiva, entre 1833 y 1852 por Franz Bopp (1791-1867) de su detallado estudio sobre los sistemas de conjugación del sánscrito, griego, latín, persa y alemán.

" Captain Edward Pelham Brenton (20 July 1774 - 13 April 1839) was an officer of the British Royal Navy during the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars who military career was relatively quiet, apart from involvement in the capture of Martinique in 1809. Brenton became famous in the aftermath of the war, when he published the Naval History of Great Britain from the Year 1783 to 1822 in 1823. The book was popular, but Brenton was criticised at the time and since for his failure to distinguish between fact and rumour as well as his partisan political leanings. In Brenton's later life, he was heavily involved in charitable enterprises in the poorer areas of London with mixed success." - See Wikipedia .

        J. M. Elford’s Marine Telegraph; or, Universal Signal Book

      Charleston, SC., 1823.. Handcolored plate. color flag ills. on front and rear pastedowns. “So composed as to enable vessels at sea, provided with only two sets of the six telegraphic flags, described in the plate, to make 7569 signals ... and to act as telegraphs to each other ... Being also the key to the patent telegraph, invented by the author, capable of making 9330 progressive changes, by using the figures from 1 to 6 only.” This is quite an early American signal book. Truxtun and Porter had previously developed systems for naval use, but as far as I know this is the earliest American merchant system. Winterthur has a manuscript copy of Elford’s Signal system dated 1818. It was followed in 1832 by Parker’s signal book and then, in 1847, by Rogers’ system. There were other early systems in America, but not all their inventors published books. Elford’s marine visual system depended on six uniquely patterned flags, and on a “conversation flag.” These are illustrated in this book, along with a glossary of words and sentences, and their numerical equivalents, which would be signaled by means of the flags. A sheet of testimonials has been pasted on the inside of the front board. Lemuel Moody of Portland is the first name. It would be interesting to know if he used Elford’s system to signal from his observatory. The front blank is inscribed, “Brig Maese 45-52. Hoist your number on coming into or leaving port.” With the corresponding set of signal flags drawn below, making “45-52.” The back pastedown contains testimonials from the Boston Marine Society. It is illustrated with hand colored flags as well. A couple of leaves appear to have been torn out of the back of the book, but these must have been blanks or advertisements, since the pagination corresponds to that given in Worldcat and “American Imprints” 12436. Some staining and old damage to surface of paper on a few pages. Abrasion on vii resulting in loss of a few letters, otherwise no loss of text or damage to the flag plate. Bound in contemporary quarter leather over marbled boards. Rare. Worldcat shows only six libraries holding copies. Never seen in the trade, except at Ten Pound Island.

        A Selection from Vues des cotes de France dans l'ocean et dans la Mediterranee-Port di Cette

      Paris: C.L.F. Panckcoucke, 1823. A DRAMATIC AND STUNNING VIEW BY AMBROISE-LOUIS GARNERAY Hand-colored aquatint engraving Sheet size: 17" x 23 3/4" 1823-34. The marine artist Ambroise-Louis Garneray was born in February, 1783. He received his first lessons in painting and drawing from his father, Jean-Francois, who was a pupil of David. The younger Garneray went to sea at the age of thirteen, and for nearly eighteen years served on battle ships, slavers, whaling vessels and on expeditions to the Caribbean and throughout the Pacific Ocean. Garneray finally returned to Paris in 1814 after spending eight years in England, where he had been detained after being captured at sea. He established himself as a marine painter upon his arrival, and studied engraving under Philibert Louis Debucourt. In 1815 he was admitted to the Salon, and exhibited his first painting, View of the Port of London, in the following year. He continued to exhibit, winning a gold medal in 1819, and later earned the patronage of Louis XVIII, who commissioned him to paint several scenes of naval battles. In 1833, Garneray was appointed director of the Rouen Museum, a post he resigned in 1837 to work on designs for the Sevres porcelain factory. While Garneray's engravings of naval and whaling scenes were extremely popular, even in America, his greatest achievement was a series of views of the principal ports of France, Europe and the United States, supplemented by the elegant prose descriptions of M.E. Jouy, and published in Paris between 1823 and 1834. Vues des cores de France..., published in five volumes, is widely acclaimed as "a magnificent collection of views'' (Deak, vol. I, p. 291). The sparkling, handcolored aquatint engravings show the principal ports of France, including Marseille, Bordeaux, Toulon, Cannes and La Rochelle. Volume five contains forty views of foreign ports, including Constantinople, Gibraltar, Barcelona, Liverpool, Naples, New Orleans, Philadelphia, New York and Baltimore. Each print exhibits endless attention to detail, incorporating architectural landmarks, ships, weather conditions, animals, and costumed figures in the midst of daily activities. Garneray makes superb use of the aquatint medium, which enables subtle variations in tone and reproduces the look and feel of watercolor more successfully than any other method of engraving. Several of Garneray's original watercolors of naval battles can be found in the collection of the New York Historical Society.. Book.

        An Essay on the History and Theory of Music and on the qualities, capabilities, and management of the human voice

      London, for G.& W.B.Whittaker 1823.. xiv p. (incl. half-title,[2] p., dedication lf, 230 p. (of which 40 ff. are wholly engraved), wholly uncut, a few marginal tears, mainly in the prelims, original. boards, rebacked with spine-label carefully following the original (too damaged to preserve). Sendrey, Bibliography of Jewish music 2061. First edition (he started to publish a second edition, as Musurgia Vocalis, in parts in 1836, but it was never completed). Isaac Nathan (Canterbury 1790 - Australia 1864) is an important link between Jewish music and that of the mainstream European tradition. He is most remembered in England for his collaboration with Byron in Hebrew Melodies: he provided the music for which Byron wrote lyrics, including such well-known poems as "She walks in beauty like the night"; that book also includes "On Jordan's banks the Arab camels stray...", written to the tune of the Maoz Tsur (its first printing?). Even though his introduction to Byron had been as piano tutor to Lady Caroline Lamb the friendship continued, to the extent that on the night Byron had to leave England Nathan sent him a packet of Matzos. This interest in Jewish music (perhaps thought to have more continuity than it has with the temple music before 70 A.D.) was also to be found in, e.g., Schubert and Beethoven (Beethoven inserted the Kol Nidrei melody into the adagio of his string quartet, opus 131). This Essay of 1823 (in which the practical advice on singing bulks much larger than the history) is incidentally pioneering on Jewish chant too: he was the first to give a notation for the ta'amei hamiqra of the Western Ashkenazi tradition. In 1841 he emigrated to Australia, and is called "father of Australian music". Certainly the first Australian opera was his, with the curious title "Merry Freaks in Troublous Times" (1844). But his talent for notating the unfamiliar took a new turn. "The Southern Euphrosyne" (1848), which begins with a lament for the People of Israel, also promises "examples of the native Aboriginal melodies,put into modern rhythm, and harmonized as solos, quartettes, etc."This book has a very curious makeup. Up to p.134 there is much engraved music in the text, with the vocal parts in letterpress, but with 2 leaves inserted wholly engraved; from p.135 to 210 the book is wholly engraved, including even some parts of Nathan's text; it then reverts to letterpress. The collation is not uncertain, however, since the pagination is continuous. Very scarce in commerce: one auction record since 1975, no other copy currently on the market.

        MECHANICS' MAGAZINE, [Museum, Register, Journal and Gazette] Volume 1 (-Volume 68) [edited by Joseph Clinton Robertson]

      London : Knight & Lacey 1823-28, then Mechanics' Magazine Office... 1829-58 . 68 (of 69) vols. 8vo, title-page in vol.10 and indexes in vols. 10, 28 & 49 supplied in photocpy, vols 1-32 uncut in original boards, paper spines, the rest in either half calf, marbled boards, or full green cloth ( photograph available). About 17-20 of the bindings need some repairs such as boards re-attached to the early volumes and a few calf bindings re-backed. This run lacks only the 69th volume for a complete set of the First Series. Apart from perhaps a set (unobtainable!) of 'Patent Specifications' the Mechanics Magazine is surely the richest single source for material on 19th century mechanics. A random sample of subjects from one volume include, railways, steam carriages, pile-driving, printing machinery, hydraulic bookbinder's press, Thames bridges, Russian paper-making, steam ships and an improved bee-hive. It was founded, and edited till 1851, by Joseph Clinton Robertson (1788-1852), a patent agent in Fleet Street. In 1859 with the beginning of the 'New Series' it changed both format (to 4to) and title to The Mechanics Magazine, and Journal of Engineering, Agricultural Machinery, Manufactures, and Shipbuilding, thus reflecting a change of direction from the 'amateur' mechanics of the early 19th century to the heavy engineering of the industrial revolution at its peak. It continued in this form until 1873 when it merged with Iron, a journal of the iron industry. It is this first series however which is by far the most interesting and important. In their editorial to volume 1 of the New Series, the editors, R.A. Brooman and E.J. Reed, say of the first issue - " .....it proved to be the beginning of a publication which has unquestionably exerted great influences upon modern science - has formed the model for scientific journalists throughout the world.... Nor was that first number the precursor of great literary influences alone. For in its pages Mr Robertson, its founder and editor, took the lead in the establishment of the London Mechanics' Institution and virtually of all those kindred institutions which now abound in the land."
