        Grammatica Sanskrita Nunc primum in Germania edidit Othmarus Frank

      Wirceburgi [Würzburg], Typographice et lithographice sumtibus propriis; Lipsiae [Leipzig], Prostat apud Fridericum Fleischer, 1823 . Crown quarto. Pp. xv, v, 218. Plus 10 plates of which 4 are folding. Bound in the original publisher's paper-covered card boards, both sides with a decorative frame with a central ornament embossed in black; boards bit marked, spine worn, small stain on back cover. With neat, contemporary inscription on first flyleaf. A very good, wide-margined copy, very well preserved entirely in the original state. ~ First edition. A good copy of the first Sanskrit grammar to appear in Germany, and a unique example of printing art. Lacking an access to any Sanskrit types, Frank could not print the book in letterpress and had to use lithography, a technique usually reserved for the printing of illustrations. Typographically it is unique that the entire text, both the Latin and the Sanskrit, were transferred to stone by hand. Very scarce. Unsophisticated copies in the original binding are practically nonexistent.

(3) GUTBIER, Aegidius. Notae criticae in Novum Testamentum Syriacum ... Hamburg, Aegidius Gutbier, 1667. 3 works in 1 volume. 8vo. Contemporary vellum.

      Darlow & Moule 8966; VD17, 39:142375F, 3:316277C, 75:689489C. First edition of by far the best edition of the Syriac New Testament published before the 19th-century, edited by Aegidius Gutbier, which remained the standard Syriac text until Samuel Lee's 1823 edition. For the first book (the gospel of Matthew) it includes Gutbier's Latin translation of the Syriac at the foot of the page. With the New Testament are two complementary works by Gutbier, produced in matching format and intended to accompany it: his Syriac lexicon giving the Syriac words with their Latin equivalents, followed by an index of the Latin words; and his extensive notes on the Syriac text of the New Testament, with alternative readings from the many sources he examined. The New Testament relates stories that would have first been told (and in some cases probably also written down) in Aramaic, the vernacular language of Palestine in Jesus's time. Syriac, another dialect of Aramaic, served as the vernacular language of much of the Middle East. The Syriac text therefore provides valuable clues to the Aramaic sources of the New Testament. With a 1691 Amsterdam purchase inscription and two 1859 owner's inscriptions. In good condition, with the lower right corner of the engraved title-page under-inked, the paper slightly browned and an occasional minor spot or small stain. Binding with some of the vellum tapes broken at the hinge, some cracks in the hinges and with the back of the bookblock reinforced, but still generally good. Three complementary books forming the most important reference work for 17th- and 18th-century Syriac studies.

        7 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift u. ein Schreiben mit papiergedecktem Siegel u. eigenh. Unterschrift.

      Zus. 15 S., 8 bis 4. Michele Viale-Prelà ist der Nachwelt vor allem wegen seiner Rolle im Fall Edgardo Mortara bekannt. Die Entführung des angeblich notgetauften jüdischen Kindes Edgardo Mortara, die mit seiner Duldung geschah, sorgte in der zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts für großes Aufsehen und spielte eine Rolle im Kulturkampf. - Michele Viale-Prelà wurde 1823 zum Priester geweiht und machte in den nachfolgenden Jahren eine ungewöhnlich schnelle Karriere. Zwischen 1828 und 1836 war er Assistent des päpstlichen Nuntius in der Schweiz, danach arbeitete er zwei Jahre mit dem Staatssekretär des Kirchenstaates. Danach nahm er selbst ab 1838 die Aufgabe eines Nuntius in München wahr und wurde 1841 zum Bischof ernannt. Ab 1845 diente er dem Vatikan als Nuntius am kaiserlichen Hof in Wien. 1855 wurde er schließlich zum Erzbischof von Bologna ernannt. Die Ernennung war ungewöhnlich, weil er selber nie Priester einer Gemeinde gewesen war und immer dem Regierungsstab des Vatikans angehörte. Er war sogar als Nachfolger des Staatssekretärs Giacomo Antonelli im Gespräch gewesen. In Bologna war er Nachfolger eines politisch eher gemäßigten Erzbischofs. Zu den ersten Maßnahmen, die Erzbischof Viale-Prelà ergriff, gehörten Vorschriften, die die Observanz religiöser Vorschriften und Gebote in dieser zum Kirchenstaat gehörenden Stadt sicherstellen sollten. Die von ihm gegründete Zeitung, L'osservato bolognese, diente vor allem dazu, liberale Ideen zu bekämpfen. Mit Missionierungskampagnen, bei denen er sehr stark auf Angehörige des Jesuitenordens zurückgriff, wollte er das religiöse Bewusstsein in seiner Gemeinde stärken (Wikipedia). - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. -

OCLC no. 45697632.Libussa, to a libretto by Joseph Carl Bernard, was first performed at the Kärntnertortheater in Vienna on December 4, 1822. Following the successful first production of the opera, Kreutzer was appointed Kapellmeister at the Kärntnertortheater."Kreutzer's music has never been entirely forgotten. His Uhland settings for male-voice chorus long remained popular. Das Nachtlager used to be revived occasionally in Germany and a few of the solo songs are still sometimes heard; above all, his score for Raimund's 'romantic magic tale' Der Verschwender continues to be performed regularly in Austria."

        The Presidential message proclaiming the Monroe Doctrine, in The National Intelligencer

      Washington, D.C. Gales and Seaton, Thursday, 4 December 1823. Volume xi, no. 3417. 1823. Bound with 127 issues of the paper 8 July to 31 December 1823. Large folio, 4pp. (20 3/8 x 15 1/4 in.), printed five columns to the page, decorative masthead at top of page 1, Monroe's message with American eagle woodcut at head. FIRST NEWSPAPER PRINTING OF THE MONROE DOCTRINE, IN THE QUASI-OFFICIAL National Intelligencer. Monroe's historic message to Congress of 2 December 1823 (here occupying 6 columns on pages 2 and 3) enshrined as national policy principles suggested by Secretary of State John Quincy Adams, condemning European intervention in the Americas and prohibiting all efforts at colonization. Monroe proclaimed that "The American continents, by the free and independent condition they have assumed and maintained, are henceforth not to be considered as subjects for future colonization by any European powers," and that any such intervention would be regarded as "manifestation of an unfriendly disposition towards the United States." His announcement "represented one of Adams' finest contributions to the emergence of the United States as a world power" (Nagel, John Quincy Adams, p.271). "By including the policy statement in his annual message Monroe gave his declaration a character reminiscent of Washington's well-remembered Farewell Address. He focussed attention upon his utterances as a declaration of national policy..." (Ammon, James Monroe: The Quest for National Identity, p.492). This printing, in the quasi-official National Intelligencer, is preceded only by an exceedingly rare "extra" issued on 2 December by the same press. Grolier American 100, 33 (book form edition); Streeter Sale, lot 1734. Disbound, spine defective, occasionally minor fraying, but internally in fine condition.

This account of Cailliaud’s second sojourn in Egypt, 1819-1822, is particularly valuable for its description of contemporary Egypt and of Cailliaud’s contacts with Mehmet Ali. He joined Isma’il Pasha’s military expedition to Nubia, where he explored the ruins of the ancient city of Meroe, after already having explored the Western Oasis, and the Oasis of Siouwah and Jupitor Ammon with Mehmet Ali’s expeditionary force. The work was edited by Cailliaud and Jomard together. The plates in the text volumes are mostly of costumes; the lithographed views are relatively early. The Atlas contains 150 beautiful plates of maps, plans, views, costumes, inscriptions, botanical and wildlife figures. Jomard also produced two minor works connected with Cailliaud: Notice sur le second voyage de M.F. Cailliaud, 1823, and Voyage a l’Oasis de Syouah, redige et publie d’apres les materiaux recueillis par le Chev. Drovetti et par Cailliaud pendant leurs voyages dans cette Oasis en 1819 et 1820, Paris, 1823. There is a wealth of information as well as vocabulary tables "of the language of Syouah", "the language of Qamâmyl Negroes in Bertât" and "language spoken at Dongolah", lists of oasis villages in low Egypt and northern Sudan, transcriptions of Greek epigraphs found at Thebes, meteorological observations.

        Veduta della parte degl'avanzi del Foro di Nerva da altri Erario pubblico in oggi Arco de' Pantani

      Roma 1823 - LE ANTICHITA ROMANE La serie delle vedute di Antichità Romane, composta di 101 tavole, viene realizzata con il ricavato della e vendita dei rami della Raccolta di cinquanta principali vedute di antichità tratte dai scavi fatti in Roma in questi ultimi tempi divise in 40 vedute edita nel 1817. Con quest’opera, per il numero delle tavole e per il formato prescelto, di grandi dimensioni, l’incisore vuole affermarsi come figura di primo piano nel mondo artistico romano. In quest’opera Rossini si cimenta in un diretto confronto con il suo predecessore G. B. Piranesi che costituisce un punto di riferimento per un incisore di vedute antiche, per quanto riguarda l’originalità e l’ampiezza della riproduzione. Il Rossini, oltre a sottolineare la sua influenza nella scelta del titolo e di alcune didascalie, usa frequentemente le medesime inquadrature e identici punti di vista del maestro veneziano. Altro elemento riconducibile a Piranesi è l’uso della luce e dei forti contrasti chiaroscurali. In queste tavole raggiunge una certa padronanza del mezzo tecnico che gli permette di cimentarsi in inquadrature più complesse nelle quali si nota un’organizzazione spaziale molto articolata. Nelle tavole è frequente il ricorso al taglio diagonale della veduta, consentendogli una più ampia possibilità di graduare i chiaroscuri in profondità. Tuttavia essendo l’opera composta da molte tavole presenta una certa discontinuità ed è possibile riscontrare in alcune di esse qualche incertezza nella impostazione prospettica ed alcune durezze nel segno. Rimanendo fedele alla tradizione corrente, la scelta dei soggetti operata dal Rossini non introduce nessuna novità; sono infatti rappresentati tutti i più importanti monumenti e luoghi archeologici di Roma. Elementi di novità sono sottolineati dalla registrazione puntuale dei lavori di indagine e di scavo intrapresi in quegli anni che dalla originalità delle inquadrature. Di particolare interesse da un punto di vista documentario sono le ultime quattro incisioni relative alla distruzione della Basilica di San Paolo fuori le mura, in seguito all’incendio del 15 luglio 1823. La volontà di voler animare le vedute, restituendo il monumento al suo contesto storico e la propria inadeguatezza nel campo della figura porta Rossini ad una collaborazione con Bartolomeo Pinelli, incisore romano, interprete e illustratore del costume e della vita popolare; a cui si devono le figure e i gruppi caratteristici che corredano le vedute. Pinelli in alcuni casi, riprende i motivi tratti dalle sue precedenti raccolte di Costumi pittoreschi romani. ROMAN ANTIQUITIES The series of views Antichità Romane, made of 101 plates, was realized with the proceeds of the sale of the plates used for Raccolta di cinquanta principali vedute di antichità tratte dai scavi fatti in Roma in questi ultimi tempi divided in 40 views, published in 1817. This is the work with which the artist wanted to become one of the most important artists in the Roman cultural life; we can state that if we consider the size of the work and the subject he choose. In this work Rossini tested himself with his predecessor, G. B. Piranesi, who was considered as a point of reference when it came to ancient views and originality. Rossini, was deeply influenced by Piranesi, as it can be seen in the title, the legends, the same points of views and framing. Another important element he took from Piranesi is the use of light and the contrast of chiaroscuro. In these plates Rossini reached the higher mastery of the technique, realizing also extremely particular framings and a new and complex organization of the space. In the plates quite common is the diagonal view of the subject, which gave him the possibility to elaborate more the chiaroscuro. However, since the work is made of many plates, it is quite discontinuous and some of the plates present some indecision in the perspective formulation and a little harshness in the mark. Always following the tradition of his time, Ross

        ACCREDITED GHOST STORIES. Collected by T. M. Jarvis, Esq. ..

      London: Printed for J. Andrews, New Bond Street, 1823.. 12mo, pp. [i-v] vi [vii-viii] [1] 2-235 [236: blank], rebound in nineteenth-century three-quarter brown leather and marbled boards, spine panel ruled in gold, black leather title label. First edition. A collection of credulous ghost stories based on UK legends and folklore, an early forerunner of similar compilations of "true" ghost stories by Catherine Crowe and Elliott O'Donnell. "When Horace Walpole used all the apparatus of Gothic fantasy in THE CASTLE OF OTRANTO (1765) he created a literary vehicle for ghosts without establishing the ghost story; the spectres were merely a stage effect. But they now became the stock-in-trade of the Gothic school of writing. In these novels a haunted edifice was an inevitable centerpiece. In most cases the hauntings were contrived by human agency or the ghost had a walk-on part in order to provoke the action; in much fewer cases were the ghost genuinely supernatural, with a more significant role. Most of these books were formulaic and repetitive, but a few are worthy of note ... Although the better Gothics also utilized ghosts, these were usually rationalized. The use of sheeted spectres, wailing phantoms, rattling chains and gibbering skeletons reduced the supernatural element to burlesque, and the Gothic ghost story was soon parodied in such works as NIGHTMARE ABBEY (1818) by Thomas Love Peacock and NORTHANGER ABBEY (1818) by Jane Austen. Rudolph Ackermann published GHOST-STORIES; COLLECTED WITH A PARTICULAR VIEW TO COUNTERACT THE VULGAR BELIEF IN GHOSTS AND APPARITIONS ... (1823) in an effort to counter the excesses of the Gothic story ... In the UK the ghost story was as much influenced by folk tales and legend as by the Gothic romance. A number of ghost stories were collected in the same manner as the Grimm Brothers compiled their folk tales, and presented in narrative form. The main folklorists reporting these tales included James Hogg in WINTER EVENING TALES (1820) and THE SHEPHERD'S CALENDAR (1828), the brothers John and Michael Banim in REVELATIONS OF THE DEAD-ALIVE (1824) [this is future history, not a collection of folklore - LWC] and T. Crofton Croker in FAIRY LEGENDS AND TRADITIONS OF THE SOUTH OF IRELAND (1825). Their stories take the form of reportage of folk legends, but became increasingly humanized. The best-remembered collector of ghost stories was Catherine Crowe, with her highly influential THE NIGHT SIDE OF NATURE (1848), LIGHT AND DARKNESS (1850) and GHOSTS AND FAMILY LEGENDS (1858). These set the trend for 'real' ghost stories related in fictional narrative form, an approach that became very popular in the 1890s ..." - Clute and Grant, eds., The Encyclopedia of Fantasy (1997), p. 403. Private owner's bookplate affixed to front paste-down. Bound without the half title leaf and the final advertising leaf, light rubbing to leather al spine ends and corner tips and along outer joints, a very good copy. (#151810)
