        ICHIRO GAFU

      1823 - [EHON] Yashima GAKUTEI, artist. ICHIRO GAFU. O^saka, Maekawa Zembei, [preface dated zodiacally as 1823]. 22.1 X 15.4 cm. Orange covers blind- patterned with a lozenge design, dark blue printed paper title label, fukuro toji binding, string-bound Japanese style. Illustrated throughout in color with many single and double page landscapes with figures. [Re: Hillier & Smith #127; Hillier Vol.2 p.854,5; Ryerson 277] An important classic which Hillier explains is a reprint, without the verse, of an earlier two volume privately printed "Kyokabon", entitled "Sansui Kikan Kyoka Shu" by Gakutei. Our copy is intermediate in ndate between the true 1823 Gasendo^ version and the Meiji version by Kajita Kansuke of Nagoya. It is bound without the double page image at sheet 10/11 which is very frequently missing. Thus there is a total of 24 single page and 7 double page images in the delicate colors of a relatively early impression (much lighter and more delicate than the Kanjita Kansuke version) The impressions are good. The covers are stained and spotted, but the interior is clean. One volume, as issued.

Napoleon Bonaparte was a French military and political leader who rose to prominence during the French Revolution and led several successful campaigns during the Revolutionary Wars. As Napoleon I, he was Emperor of the French from 1804 until 1814, and again in 1815. Napoleon dominated European and global affairs for more than a decade while leading France against a series of coalitions in the Napoleonic Wars. He won most of these wars and the vast majority of his battles, building a large empire that ruled over continental Europe before its final collapse in 1815. One of the greatest commanders in history, his wars and campaigns are studied at military schools worldwide. He also remains one of the most celebrated and controversial political figures in human history.

        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.

        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).

Ilustrado com 22 gravuras, entre as quais 4 gravuras coloridas: Nº 1 no anterrosto com os costumes da ilha da Madeira; Nº 3 com os cortes geológicos da ilha da Madeira; Nº 6 com a ponta ou cabo do Garajau e os seus cortes geológicos; e a Nº 9 com os costumes dos homens e mulheres da Gâmbia. 1ª edição desta obra que contém as viagens de explorações científicas levadas a cabo pelo senhor e pela senhora Bowdich. O senhor Bowdich (1791-1824) participou em várias missões em África e faleceu prematuramente com 33 anos de idade quando efectuava um trabalho de levantamento cartográfico na região da Serra Leoa. O seu trabalho foi continuado e completado por sua mulher, apresentando belas gravuras e desenhos com valor científico que incluem etnografia, flora e fauna (peixes, insectos, répteis, etc) das regiões visitadas. O texto é um relato bem informado, que estuda a geologia dos locais visitados pelo casal Bowdich e descreve com pormenor científico os aspectos geológicos, botânicos e faunísticos da Ilha da Madeira. Comparam as observações com outros locais também visitados (como por exemplo a região de Lisboa e Cabo Verde) e citam autores que na sua época eram a referência dos estudos mais recentes, como é o caso de Vandelli. Esta obra analisa muito particularmente os aspectos geológicos, tanto no seu texto como nas suas ilustrações gráficas, coloridas e não coloridas. A imagem do Aqueduto das Águas Livres pretende mostrar o aspecto geológico dos basaltos da zona de Lisboa. Os autores comparam-nos posteriormente com os basaltos encontrados na ilha da Madeira (ver págs. 34-35). Os autores procuraram registar e baptizar novas espécies da fauna e da flora, isto é atribuíram novos nomes científicos a plantas e a animais. As pranchas gravadas e desenhadas pela senhora Bowdich são uma recolha de todos os peixes encontrados na Madeira pelos autores, junto com uma miscelânea de fósseis e plantas recolhidos nas suas viagens e ainda outras curiosidades tais como o insecto que ataca as laranjeiras da Madeira, visto ao microscópio (ver figuras 35 a, b, c e d). Nesta data (1823/1825), esta obra é percursora do futuro pensamento evolucionista ? a evolução das espécies proposta por Darwin depois da viagem do HMS Beagle em 1826 - e difusionista (difusão das espécies). Ambas as teorias são um produto do pensamento e do conhecimento do século XIX. Por exemplo, equaciona-se nesta obra se o rato da ilha da Madeira é o mesmo que se encontra na Suécia, sendo o primeiro anterior e tendo-se difundido posteriormente no continente através do comércio marítimo. Outro exemplo é a identificação de certa espécie de morcegos da Madeira, na qual se refere a sua completa originalidade neste arquipélago. No entanto, a grande questão apresentada é a comparação das camadas e dos tempos geológicos em vários locais, magnificamente ilustrados por Sara Bowdich nas gravuras e com explicações no texto. Relembramos que Darwin visitou a Madeira, no ano seguinte ao da publicação desta obra, e aí registou no seu livro as primeiras observações geoló

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

      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"). 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

In addition to the Tarentaise, the title mentions the Grecian and Pennine Alps, Switzerland and Auvergne. See Abbey Travel 56 and Tooley 75. Tooley paginates the 4 color plates differently from those in the present set, but all are intact here. Condition of these books: Good and sound with scattered dusty stains as if from fingerprints, but generally clean, very little foxing. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        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).
