        Geographical, Statistical, and Historical Map of Porto Rico and the Virgin Islands

      Philadelphia, 1823. Very good condition. Fine original hand colored map of the Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, from the first edition of Carey and Lea's 'A Complete Historical, Chronological, and Geographical American Atlas, being a Guide to the History of North and South America, and the West Indies . to the Year 1822', the best atlas of nineteenth century America. With the English, Danish and Spanish possessions indicated by color; with a very dramatic delineation of the mountains and coast line of 'Porto Rico'. A very vibrant, strong impression. With text below map and at both sides, pertaining to topography, climate, lands, towns, roads and canals, education, government and history. This map, according to History Detectives (Season 6, Episode 4: Lincoln Forgery) was evidently part of an Abraham Lincoln memorabilia scam in which a forger named Harry Sickles worked with Eugene Field II to pass off items in Field's collection as Lincoln items. Sickles and Field managed to convince William P. Brown, the still living coachman of Abraham Lincoln, that they wanted his signature on the verso of their items. Brown's signature, and the notary's signature are genuine; the text referring to the map being given by Mrs. Lincoln to Brown in 1866 was added by the forger. This is the handwritten note on the verso: "This is from the collection of old books, papers, maps, etc presented to her coachman, Wm. P Brown, by Mrs. Lincoln in 1866. (Signed) Wm P Brown. The signatures are genuine. (Signed) Frank E. Thatcher". There is a blue notary stamp, (Muskegon County, Mich. 1933) and a circular blind stamp. Howe's C133.

        Anatomia Universa: Anatomiae Universae Pauli Mascagni Icones.

      Pisa: Apud Nicolaus Capurro, 1823. 1st Edition. No Binding. Large Folio. Atlas volume. Double elephant folio (985 x 715 mm). 2 sheets of text (engraved title and engraved dedication), 9 original cover sheets with printed paper labels of the fascicle wrappers, and 88 sheets of fine engraved plates of anatomical illustrations, of which 44 are coloured and 44 dublicated in outlines. The unbound sheets are housed in a wood-enforced custom-made cassette. The separately published text-volumes of much smaller size are not included here. Title, dedication and a few plates with paper repairs outside plate-marks, minor occasional spotting, finger- and dust-soiling, one plate foxed, small dampstain to outer blank corner of about 20 plates. All engraved plates with a small round blindstamp in lower right corner. An outstanding, complete set. ----Garrison-Morton 409.1; Wellcome IV, p.73; Heirs of Hippocrates 1102; Roberts & Tomlinson, The Fabric of the Body, pp. 387-90. FIRST EDITION of Mascagni's magnus opus and one of the greatest and most amazing anatomical works . It was among two other major works by Mascagni that were left unfinished at his death in 1815. Responsibility for editing the Anatomia universa was given to Antommarchi, the physician who had been Mascagni's prosector and who assisted him in preparing another work, the anatomy for artists. In 1822, Mascagni's heirs sold the rights to the Anatomia universa to Andrea Vaccá-Berlinghieri, Giacomo Barzellotti, and Giovanni Rosini, professors at the faculty of Pisa. "It was these three individuals who prepared the present work. In the meantime, Antommarchi, who had taken three sets of plates with him to St. Helena to prepare them for publication, disregarded the court ruling and published his own edition of the plates at Paris between 1823 and 1826 without giving any credit to Mascagni. The forty-five plates of the Antommarchi edition were produced by lithography and fall short technically of the excellent copper engravings in the present work. In addition, twenty-four figures in Mascagni's anatomy are omitted from Antommarchi's work. Each of the forty-four exquisite plates in the present work is hand-colored in the standard colors for representing anatomical structures--red, white, and blue. Each of the colored plates is also accompanied by a duplicate outline plate which contains nomenclature for identifying the anatomical parts from the accompanying volume of text [not included here] ... The plates are so large that a man five and one-half feet tall can be composed if three of the plates are joined together. Many of the plates are signed by Antonio Serantoni, artist and engraver, while others have no signature at all and at least one plate names Joseph Canacci as engraver beside the artist, Serantoni. According to the editors, Mascagni delayed publishing this magnificent work because he was hoping that it would be possible to make his plates by means of the color print alone." (Heirs of Hippocrates 1102). "The size of the bodies is assumed to be three Tuscan braccie, equal to five feet, five inches, Parisian measurement, but such parts as are represented separately are sometimes drawn upon a larger scale. The sheets are so large that an entire body can be composed out of three of them when they are joined together. The muscles are drawn on a flesh-colored background produced with the crayon (by means of the roulette) and are further illuminated by means of the brush. The viscera are faithfully represented: vessels and nerves are shown in red, blue and white, the colors commonly used to represent anatomic subjects... This large anatomic work is unique even today, but it is certainly expensive and inconvenient for practical uses... As the editors assure the reader, it is chiefly recommended to the practicing physician and the surgeon. It may be called complete since nothing, except microscopic anatomy, histology, and the lymphatics of the skin have been omitted. Even the pregnant uterus, the placenta, and the fetus are represented in several illustrations. According to the editors' preface, Mascagni was believed to have delayed the publication of the work because he was always hoping to make his plates without the use of the brush, by means of the color print alone" (Choulant-Frank, pp. 318-19). The print run was very limited, given the very high cost of the book, which was sold to the astronomical figure of 2,520 gold francs (equivalent to about 750 grams of gold or about 20 thousands USD). I can thus be regarded as the most expensive anatomical work ever produced. The atlas is very rare at auction. Only a single complete copy (with the text volumes) can be traced: the Irwin Pincus copy, sold 2004 at Christie's NY for US$ 95,600. According to Garrison-Morton, "those with the plates hand-coloured by the artist, Antonio Serrantoni, are among the most breathtakingly beautiful of all anatomical studies." In fact, Tabula III Viscera (exploded torso) was the most downloaded image so far from the collection of more than 100,000 that the Wellcome Library in London made available under an open license in 2014. (see openglam.org/2014/06/10/the-wellcome-librarys-top-10-open-images-2). This atlas volume comes in a special custom-made wooden transport box. Very Good.

        An Account of Some Recent Discoveries in Hieroglyphical Literature, and Egyptian Antiquities. Including the author's original alphabet, as extended by Mr. Champollion .

      - London, Murray 1823. Octavo uncut in modern quarter cloth & boards; xvi,160,[2,4 adverts]pp, illustrations of hieroglyphs through the text. Some light spotting or browning. Tart and a little peevish, not without cause, but not an ungenerous book. This is an I-told-you-so book, and we should perhaps be thankful for Champollion's reticence about credit due to Young for his translation of the 'demotic' text of the Rosetta stone and his deduction that hieroglyphs were a phonetic alphabet. That ostensibly forced from Young this full account of his researches, discoveries and their consequent acceptance and use by Champollion. Young is peevish in his determination to retain the term 'enchorial' rather than Champollion's 'demotic' on the grounds of precedence; he is not gentle when describing the errors of his predecessors and contemporaries; and he relishes the over-reaching cupidity of Drovetti, the French Consul at Alexandria who, upon realizing that he owns an inscription greatly desired by Young, holds out for too much for too long, by which time new discoveries make his treasure obsolete. But Young is equally generous in his praise of many of his fellow scholars and, however much it seems to grate at times, gives full recognition to Champollion - given that we understand how much Champollion's successes rest upon Young's original ingenuity. He excuses his foray into the hieroglyphic world as his "Jubilee Year" - time and effort honorably earned from his scientific and medical work and reminds us that his remarkable work in one field should not dim the brilliance of his efforts in the other. Not all of this book is dredging up old news. He descibes and translates some texts lent to him by George Grey which provided some remarkable discoveries, making this book "the last milestone in Young's distinguished Egyptological career" (Iversen).

        Extracts from the Projected Penal Code, Containing the Fourth Section.

So Many of the Definitions Contained in the First Book as Apply to Terms Employed in the Said Chapter. That Part of the Fourth Book which Contains the Forms of Proceeding. And of the Fifth Book Which Gives the Rules of Evidence, Applicable Exclusively to Those Offences.

The Whole Intended to Exemplify the Manner in Which the Projected Code will be Executed, By Exhibiting in One View the Several Parts, Which Bear Upon a Single Class of Offences. New Orleans: Printed by Benj. Levy & Co., 1823. 31, [2] pp. Folio (12-1/4" x 7-1/2"). Recent period-style quarter calf over marbled boards, gilt fillets and lettering piece to spine. Light toning to text, negligible light foxing in a few places. Ex-library. Small inkstamp to head of title page. * Only edition. Livingston produced this set of excerpts when he was completing the draft of his System of Penal Law, Prepared for the State of Louisiana. He sent copies to James Kent and other distinguished jurists, as well as several politicians and journalists, in order to "point out such of the many errors I must have committed, as you may discover; and suggest such alterations and improvements as may occur to you" [2]. Submitted to the Louisiana state assembly in 1824, Livingston's code marked an epoch in the broad international movement for penal reform. Profoundly influenced by Bentham, it stressed prevention over vengeance in every facet of his work. Never enacted, it nevertheless established itself as one of the great standards for other reformers. Hicks marvels at the scope and clear organization of this code and notes that Bentham, Hugo, Lafayette, Story, Marshall, Madison, Kent and Jefferson considered it "the most comprehensive and enlightened system of criminal law that has ever been presented to the world." OCLC locates 12 copies, 6 in law libraries (George Washington University, Harvard, Loyola, Tulane, University of Michigan, Yale). H

        Gotham and the Gothamites. A Medley

      1823 - (AMERICAN JUDAICA). [Judah, Samuel Benjamin Helbert]. Gotham and the Gothamites. A Medley. New York: Published for the author, by S. King, 1823. Small 12mo. lvi, 93, [1] p. Original printed paper-covered boards. Untrimmed and largely unopened. Endpapers slightly foxed, boards a bit scuffed and worn at extremities, else a remarkably well preserved copy, and with the entire spine and letterpress title intact. First edition of a libelous satire of New York society by one of the earliest Jewish-American literary figures. Judah (1804-1876) published seven books between 1820 and 1827, all of which met with little critical acclaim. Immediately after the publication of Gotham and the Gothamites, Judah caused handbills to be posted throughout the city, offering a reward for the discovery of the author. He then wrote anonymous letters to many of the individuals he had mentioned in the book, calling their attention to the book's publication. One of the many prominent New Yorkers skewered in the text was Judah's Jewish playwriting contemporary, Mordecai Manuel Noah, who is the subject of ten footnoted pages. Judah was sued for libel, found guilty, fined, and sent to prison, but was pardoned by the governor five weeks later because of ill health. He was subsequently admitted to the bar and practiced law in New York for the remainder of his life. Shoemaker 12971; BAL 11020; Rosenbach, American Jewish Bibliography, 242.

        Petite Bibliothèque Portative.

      Paris: Rignoux, 1823. Ten volumes, each with 48 pages. First edition. Illustrated with 68 plates from copper engravings and one folding map. Legrand's miniature library for children contains the following titles: Morale en Action; Mythologie; Geographie; Fables; Histoire de France; Contes; Animaux; Insectes; Mineralogie; and Botanique. Augustin Legrand (1765 - 1856) is credited with being one of the first authors of books directed exclusively for children in France. This set is very much in the same vein as Thomas Boreman's Gigantick Histories. Like their earlier English counterparts, complete sets of Legrand's Bibliothèque Portative are extremely rare, with only four recorded in institutional holdings. Bound in the publisher's original green printed wrappers, which are completely lacking on volume 6. Some minor rubbing and creasing to wrappers, otherwise a very nice set. (2 1/2 by 2 1/2; 63x63mm).

        Beobachtungen und Versuche zur Physiologie der Sinne von J. Purkinje, Doctor der Medizin und Professor der Physiologie zu Breslau. Erstes Bändchen. Beiträge zur Kenntniss des Sehens im subjectiver Hinsicht. Mit 1 Kupfertafel. Zweite unveränderte Auflage

      In commission der J. G. Calve'schen Buchhandlung [Johann Gottfried Calve], Prag 1823 - Second edition (identical to the first, only the title page changed). In contemporary hard paper. (11), 4-176, (1) p., and 1 folded, engraved plate. Purkyn?'s doctoral dissertation on inner vision, a milestone in experimental psychology. This treatise, Purkyn?'s doctoral dissertation, is an attempt to find the guiding rules of the inner visual impressions, the "subjective vision". Purkyn? sought to elucidate and quantify the so-called entropionic images, the images can be seen while eyes are closed and the eyelid is turned inward against the eyeball. His work is also known as the first report on the flicker-light induced patterns, the colour and form hallucinations that homogeneous flickering light could cause. Purkyn? describes and classified the different patterns of "subjective vision" and shows these complex figures-coloured stars, spirals, tartans, squares, hexagons- on the appended folded plate. Two issues are recorded of the 1819 first edition of the work, the first with title page gives the publisher as Fr. Vetterl and describes the author as "Candidaten der Medicin", the second with errata, additional dedication, and altered title page, gives the publisher as Calve (just as this edition), and refers to Purkyn? as "Doctor der Medicin". This second edition was published with a cancel title (different title of the dissertation that suggest a subsequent volume, which appeared in 1825, different date, etc.) otherwise identical to the second issue of the 1819 edition, thus could be considered as the third issue. Jan Evangelista Purkyn? (1787-1869) was a Bohemian polymath, and pioneer of experimental physiology. He studied medicine and philosophy at the University of Prague where graduated in 1819. After he published his dissertation, this work, he was appointed as Professor of Psychology at the same institute. While at Prague, he discovered the phenomenon that as light intensity decreases, red objects are perceived to fade faster than blue objects of the same brightness, known as the Purkinje effect. In 1823 he developed a system of classification of fingerprints and defined nine recurring variations of patterns of fingertips. In the same year, he was offered the chair of physiology and pathology at the University of Breslau, where, in 1839 he set up the world's first physiological institute, and later in 1842 the first official physiological laboratory. Purkyn? is best know for the cell named after him, a large nerve cells with many branching extensions found in the cortex of the cerebral cortex, and the Purkinje fibers the fibrous tissue that conducts the pacemaker stimulus along the inside walls of the ventricles to all parts of the heart. Besides these achievements, he is responsible for introducing plasma and protoplasm the scientific terms and various other discoveries.

        The Jesuits Unmasked, Being An Illustration Of The Existing Evils Of Popery In A Protestant Government

      London - B. Seeley And Son, 1823 Book. VERY GOOD INDEED. Hardcover. First edition.. A rare first edition of William Parker's petition to the House of Commons, complaining of Jesuit activities in South Africa. Scarce last seen at auction in 2001In this deeply sectarian series of missives, Parker complains that English Protestant settlers in South Africa have been exposed to the risk of extirpation. He argues that a conspiracy to this end was being directed from the Jesuit Institution in Lancashire. The issue was discussed in Parliament, and as such can be found in Hansard from that year. There is an advert for the work appended, which explains that it was framed at periods when the writer and his family suffered most severely from the conduct of official men, and when he was well convinced that popery in the government of the Cape, caused the oppression exercised towards him. This copy is from the collection of George Harwood, and his bookplate can be found to the front pastedown. Harwood was a businessman and Liberal party politician who lived from 1845 to 1912. He was once Mayor of Bolton and Twice Mayor of Salford. Condition: In half morocco with gilt detailing to the spine. Externally very smart indeed, with very minor rubbing to the extremities of the boards and a few light marks elsewhere. The spine has a particularly nice colour. There are two notices mentioning the bookto the front pastedown, the second of which notes that the work is extremely rare. There is also a bookplate to the front pastedown. The pages are uncut, but are generally clean and bright. Firmly bound. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED.

        Extracts from the Projected Penal Code, Containing the Fourth Section.

      1823. New Orleans: Printed by Benj. Levy & Co., 1823. Livingston Solicits Opinions on His Penal Code for Louisiana Livingston, Edward [1764-1836]. Extracts from the Projected Penal Code: Containing the Fourth Section of the Thirteenth Chapter, Third Book: Entitled "Of Offences Which Affect Written Contracts." So Many of the Definitions Contained in the First Book as Apply to Terms Employed in the Said Chapter. That Part of the Fourth Book which Contains the Forms of Proceeding. And of the Fifth Book Which Gives the Rules of Evidence, Applicable Exclusively to Those Offences. To Which is Prefixed an Extract from a Preliminary Discourse, Indicating the Changes that Have Been Made, And Assigning the Reasons for Adopting Them. The Whole Intended to Exemplify the Manner in Which the Projected Code will be Executed, By Exhibiting in One View the Several Parts, Which Bear Upon a Single Class of Offences. New Orleans: Printed by Benj. Levy & Co., 1823. 31, [2] pp. Folio (12-1/4" x 7-1/2"). Stab-stitched pamphlet bound into recent marbled stiff wrappers, printed title panel to front cover. Light toning to text, negligible light foxing in a few places. Ex-library. Small inkstamp to head of title page. $1,500. * Only edition. Livingston produced this set of excerpts when he was completing the draft of his System of Penal Law, Prepared for the State of Louisiana. He sent copies to James Kent and other distinguished jurists, as well as several politicians and journalists, in order to "point out such of the many errors I must have committed, as you may discover; and suggest such alterations and improvements as may occur to you" [2]. Submitted to the Louisiana state assembly in 1824, Livingston's code marked an epoch in the broad international movement for penal reform. Profoundly influenced by Bentham, it stressed prevention over vengeance in every facet of his work. Never enacted, it nevertheless established itself as one of the great standards for other reformers. Hicks marvels at the scope and clear organization of this code and notes that Bentham, Hugo, Lafayette, Story, Marshall, Madison, Kent and Jefferson considered it "the most comprehensive and enlightened system of criminal law that has ever been presented to the world." OCLC locates 12 copies, 6 in law libraries (George Washington University, Harvard, Loyola, Tulane, University of Michigan, Yale).

        Kenzan iboku [Ink Traces of Kenzan]

      Numerous fine color-printed woodcuts (several double-page). 15 folding leaves. 8vo, orig. patterned wrappers, block printed title label on upper cover, new stitching. N.p.: 1823. First edition of this beautiful book. Ogata (1663-1743), was a painter and one of the greatest ceramicists of the Tokugawa era, famous for the skill of his brush strokes. He was the younger brother of Korin Ogata (1658-1716), with whom he collaborated on many projects. Sakai (1761-1828), a prominent painter of the Rinpa school, was determined to revive and honor the style of the Ogata brothers. To that end, he published two books of woodblock prints of the brothers' work, the Korin Hyakuzu (1815) and the present work. The images here include Ogata's work in pottery (designs for incense containers for tea ceremonies), plates for sweets, hanging scrolls (including his iconic Evening Glories), illustrated poems, screens (including his plum blossom screen), fans, etc. The woodcuts have been re-interpreted by Sakai and display at the highest level the art of the wood engraver. The calligraphy displayed here as text and in the images is very finely executed. Sakai has provided an almost loving account of the work of Ogata as a preface. Fine copy.

        Observaciones que los poseedores de mayorazgos presentaron al Congreso de 1823. [text begins:] Señor. Los actuales poseedores de Mayorazgos cumpliendo con los deberes que á su parecer les impone la conciencia .

      N.p., n.pr., 1823. - 4°, disbound (separated at fold). Caption title. Very light foxing. Overall in good condition. Early manuscript foliation in ink. (2 ll.) *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION? The owners of mayorazgos in Chile attempt to persuade Congress that the institution should not be abolished. If Congress has the power to outlaw mayorazgos, "podrá tambien este poder destruir todos los contratos y cuantos pactos humanos ha celebrado la sociedad." They also argue that Chile's political situation is unique and that the mayorazgos are economically beneficial to the country because wealthy landowners can cultivate and develop the land.The mayorazgo, a form of primogeniture that prevented large estates from being dispersed, became part of Castilian law in 1505 and was carried over into Latin America. After Spain suppressed the mayorazgo in 1820 by the Ley Desvinculadora, debate raged between liberals and conservatives over its abolition in Chile. O'Higgins abolished the mayorazgo by a decree of June 1818 that was ignored. The Constitution of 1828 abolished it, too, but it was effectively reinstated by the Constitution of 1833, and not abolished completely until the 1850s, under President Montt.*** Briseño I, 239.

      NP 1823 - Manuscript map, 7 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches, based on "The State of Mississippi and Alabama Territory," by Francis Shallus (Philadelphia: M. Carey & Son, 1817), showing the two states with watercolor border highlighting and watercolor wash for Warren, Claiborne, Jefferson, Adams, Franklin, Wilkinson, Amite, Marion, Lawrence, Wayne, Greene, and Hancock counties in Mississippi, and Washington and Baldwin counties in Alabama, and with ink wash for rivers and the edges of the Gulf of Mexico and Lake Pontchartrain, the whole enclosed within a watercolor border and with lines of longitude and latitude marked; interior rivers are drawn in for both states and, for the most part identified in Alabama, with Indian tribal lands also marked in the lower part of that state.

Very good and a delightful, well-executed schoolgirl exercise. Matted, glazed, and framed. (#6293).

        Four Panoramic Views of Edinburgh taken from the Calton Hill by Lady Elton.

      Edinburgh 1823 - 4 folded sheets printed on india paper 26 x 62 cm in original wrappers 36 x 36 cm. Titling paper label to upper cover, engraved double page dedication to George IVth. First published the previous year, here the plates printed on india paper. According to Abbey the title continue s" .Published for the benefit of the Deaf and Dumb Institution of Edinburgh.". but in this case there is just the brief label. This fine and uncommon set of four lithographs provide a sweeping 360° panoramic view of Edinburgh and the surrounding areas from Calton Hill. Edinburgh was the birthplace of the panorama – indeed the first panorama ever produced was taken also from Calton Hill, by Robert Barker in 1787, thus setting in train a fashion for this type of topographical painting. In 1822, the artist, Mary Stewart, had produced a set of four views of the city from Blackford Hill. She was the daughter of Sir William Stewart, of Castle Stewart, Wigtownshire, and she married Sir Abraham Elton of Clevedon, Somerset in 1822. The views were drawn on stone by William Westall the skilled topographical illustrator and printed in London by Charles Hullmandel, one of the foremost lithographic printers. Lithography was very much in its infancy in Scotland, the first examples using this method not being printed until 1821. In two of the views can be seen tented encampments of troops, assembled to honour the royal visit of King George IV to the city in August 1822. The panoramas also provide detailed evidence of the development of the city in the early 19th century. (National Library of Scotland) (Abbey, 500 - coloured) [Attributes: Soft Cover]
