Ebenfalls mit einer zynischen Widmung an Baron Rothschild versehen. Hundt geht als einer der ersten Antisemiten weg von der christlichen Begründung des Jesus-Mordes hin zu einem rassisch motivierten Judenhass; er geht sogar so weit, dass er insgesamt ihm mißliebige Bevölkerungsgruppen zu sog. "weißen Juden" (im Gegensatz zu "schwarzen Juden") erklärt; u. a. werden Engländer zu Juden erklärt, da sie direkt von Abraham und dessen zweiter Frau Ketura abstammen sollen. Die "kleineren weißen" Juden hingegen seien unmittelbare Abkömmlinge Abrahams und dessen Mätressen. - Der auf dem Allodialgut Schlieven bei Parchim geborene Johann Hartwig Hundt (1780-1835) legte sich aus unbekannten Gründen den Namen "Radowksy" zu, gelegentlich auch ergänzt durch einen zu Unrecht getragenen Adelstitel. Sein geifernder Hass gegen Juden trieb ihn durch ganz Deutschland und mehrfach in die Schweiz ins Exil, wo er auch als mittelloser Alkoholiker verstarb. - Stockfleckig, sonst recht gut erhaltenes Exemplar des seltenen Werkes!

        Veduta del Tempio delle Camene, da altri del Dio Ridicolo

      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, Rossini's choice of the subjects does not present any kind of originality; he actually depicted all the main archaeological sites and monuments of Rome. The sole novelty is represented by the precise record of the excavation works and analysis. Quite interesting, from a documental point of view, are the last four engravings depicting the destruction of the Basilica of St. Paul outside the wall, after the fire of July the 15th, 1823. The will to give life to his views, the reinstatement of the monuments to their historic context and the fact that he was not good with figures, brought Rossini to start a partnership with Bartolomeo Pinelli, Roman engraver and costume illustrator of daily life. He was the one who realized the figures of Rossini's views. Sometimes Pinelli took the subjects from his previous collection Costumi pittoreschi romani. Roma Rome Luigi Rossini incisore.

        De las Prisiones consideradas en su actual estado y según las reformas que deben experimentar con respecto a la Higiene, a la Moral y a la Economía Política. Obra escrita en francés y traducida por L.

      Cádiz, imprenta de la Casa de Socorro, 1823. - Petit in-4. 1f. IV. 100pp. Demi-veau postérieur (Domenech). Première Edition Espagnole de cet important ouvrage du statisticien et philanthrope français Louis René Villermé (1782-1863), qui fut l'un des grands précurseurs de la sociologie moderne. "Les travaux de Villermé sont reconnus comme des étapes très importantes du développement de la démographie et de la statistique. Une première étude sur les conditions de vie des prisonniers (1820), laquelle s'insérait dans un projet de réforme du régime pénitentiaire, rend Villermé célèbre. Il entreprend ensuite des études comparées de la mortalité et de la mortalité infantile suivant les milieux sociaux, desquelles il ressort que la condition ouvrière dans les villes entraîne une mortalité très supérieure à la moyenne" (Encyclopædia Universalis). La traduction en espagnol de cet ouvrage précurseur de Villermé s'inscrit dans le cadre du mouvement d'idées libérales qui avaient conduit à la promulgation de la première Constitution Espagnole à Cádiz en 1812; l'année 1823, date de publication du présent ouvrage, marquait le renversement du régime et le retour de l'absolutisme. Déchirure sans manque au feuillet J. Quelques rousseurs éparses.

        The Arctic Regions.

      Large folio (618 x 498 mm). Original brown morocco elaborately gilt, marbled endpapers. Housed in an oatmeal cloth folding case. First and only edition of this highly uncommon and highly desirable Arctic record, one of perhaps as few as 300 copies. The book forms a record of the last of seven voyages to Labrador and Greenland that Bradford sponsored or participated in during the 1860s: "all early examples of what one might call 'eco-art tourism'"(Books on Ice). Bradford was born in Fairhaven, Massachusetts in 1823, and established himself as a painter of ship portraits in Lynn and other local harbours, his work being characterised by its "correctness ... and carefulness" (DAB). From this he progressed to coastal studies, gradually moving northwards up the New England and Canadian coasts, and thence, inspired by the recently published accounts of the Franklin search expeditions, to the Arctic. "I was seized with a desire, which had become uncontrollable, to visit the scenes they had described and study Nature under the terrible aspects of the Frigid Zone" (quoted in the Dictionary of Canadian Biography). Between 1861 and 1867 he carried out a series of annual expeditions "along the coasts of Nova Scotia and Labrador for the purpose of painting northern scenery and icebergs", and in 1869 he obtained the support of broker and railroad baron Le Grand Lockwood to fit out the Scottish steamship Panther for his most ambitious voyage yet. His party of forty included John Bartlett, the son of the owner of the ship, who later captained for Peary, Dr Isaac Hayes, who had served under Kane, and two photographers, John B. Dunmore and George B. Critcherson, from the leading Boston photographic studio of James William Black. Departing from St John's on 3 July, the party sailed as far north as Baffin Island and Melville Bay, Greenland, and Bradford "returned with a collection of photographs and a vast number of sketches of the rugged landscape and the details of Inuit life". He was later to say that this vast archive of photographs had saved him "eight or ten voyages to the Arctic regions, now I gather my inspirations from my photographic subjects just as an author gains food from his library. I could not paint without them" (quoted by Horch). In the early 1870s Bradford settled in London, setting up a studio which attracted considerable aristocratic patronage (his most important commission came from Queen Victoria, the painting entitled "The Panther off the Coast of Greenland under the Midnight Sun" which was hung in the library of Windsor Castle), enjoying a second career as a lecturer on the Arctic, and in 1873 publishing the present volume; "no doubt ... one of the most sumptuous of the century ... one of the nineteenth century's most spectacular photographically illustrated travel books" (Parr & Badger). The technical problems that attended the handling of wet-plate negatives under extreme conditions makes the quality of Dunmore and Critcherson's images all the more remarkable, being "counted not only amongst the earliest, but also the best polar photographs".

        The World on Mercator's Projection

      Philadelphia: H. S. Tanner, 1823. Copper-engraved map, with full original color, n very good condition. A World map by one of America's first great cartographers The objective of depicting a three dimensional sphere on a two dimensional sheet of paper has challenged mapmakers since Classical times. Mercator's solution was to straighten all of the longitudinal meridians, making them perpendicular to the lines of latitude. The consequence of this projection was that while lands close to the Equator assumed a relatively realistic form, lands closer to the poles attained a progressively attenuated and exaggeratedly large appearance. The map reflects the great improvements in geographical understanding in the wake of the epic sea voyages of the late eighteenth-century, most notably those by Cook, La Perouse and Vancouver.

        Memoria justificativa do Marquez d'Alorna.

      Hamburg, Na Typographia de F.H. Nestler, (1823). - Large 4° (27 x 21.5 cm.), contemporary brown straight-grain morocco (3 pinpoint wormholes on upper cover, slight wear to spine), gilt-rolled border on each cover, green endleaves, all text-block edges gilt. Wood-engraved vignette on title page. Light browning. In fine condition. Unsigned presentation inscription to Pedro Gabe de Massarellos, Portuguese consul general in Hamburg, on front flyleaf recto. 26 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION, very rare, of this defense of the third Marques de Alorna's conduct during the Peninsular War. The Marques (Pedro de Almeida Portugal, 1754-1813) held several high military positions from 1801 to 1807, during which time he did what he could to prepare Portugal for the inevitable invasion by French and Spanish forces. When it came in November 1807, Alorna was ordered by his superiors to offer no resistance. Left at the mercy of the French occupiers following the royal family's flight to Brazil, the Portuguese army was converted into a "Portuguese Legion" and sent into Spain and France to fight for Napoleon. Alorna went as well, returning to Portugal in 1810 as part of the invading forces led by Marshal Masséna. For this action, Alorna was convicted in absentia of @lèse majesté and sentenced to death, his property was confiscated, and a substantial bounty placed on his head. Alorna later took part in Napoleon's ill-fated invasion of Russia, dying at Königsberg during the retreat.The @Memoria describes and defends Alorna's actions, to the extent of crediting him with preserving the Portuguese monarchy by providing the royal family sufficient time to flee to Brazil. It was probably written by, or at the behest of, Alorna's sister, D. Leonor de Almeida, 4º Marquesa de Alorna (1750-1839). A highly regarded poet and patron of the arts, the Marquesa successfully petitioned for the restoration of her brother's honor (and his property). Pages 17-26 print the text of the judicial decision, dated Lisbon, August 16, 1823, reversing Alorna's conviction.*** Innocêncio VI, 181: "documento de que ainda não vi mais que dous ou tres exemplares."

"Rien ne prédisposait le comte de Las Cases, aristocrate émigré à Londres pendant la Révolution, homme sans relief mais fidèle serviteur de l'Empire, à écrire ce qui allait être le plus grand succès de librairie du XIXe siècle...Deux ans après avoir rendu son dernier souffle, le proscrit de 1815 reprenait vie sous la plume de son chambellan qui, pendant un peu plus d'un an...avait recueilli et consigné sur le papier les impériales confidences. On sent que Las Cases, poussé par le grand vent de l'Histoire qui balayait sa frêle personne, en a rajouté. Mais ce Napoléon intime, quotidien, abandonné et la tête encore pleine de ses campagnes, a quelques chose qui inspire presque la compassion. On est pas tenu de le croire sur parole quand il se dresse en défenseur de la liberté des peuples et pourtant, son insistance à se poser en héritier de la Révolution...en ferait presque oublier les excès de son despotisme. C'est d'ailleurs ce Napoléon-là que le Mémorial a ressuscité, le monarque déchu redevenu ce qu'il avait été au temps des sans-culottes, l'homme du peuple qui rêvait maintenant dans son exil de courir les spectacles et les cabarets littéraires de Paris et de se régaler pour trente sols d'un dîner au Palais Royal. Las Cases fit beaucoup pour la légende napoléonienne. Une légende à laquelle s'abreuvèrent de Hugo à Nerval, de Stendhal à Musset, tous les enfants du siècle" (Daniel Bermond). Bel exemplaire complet dans sa jolie reliure d'époque.

        Essai géognostique sur le gisement des roches dans les deux hémisphères

      1823 - 8 p. de catalogue éditeur, Paris, F.G. Levrault, 1823, in-8, 8 p. de catalogue éditeur, VIII-379 p, broché, couverture imprimée de l'éditeur, PREMIÈRE ÉDITION publiée simultanément en français et en allemand (Geognostischer Versuch über die Lagerung der Gebirgsarten in beiden Erdhälften, Strasbourg, Levrault) du principal ouvrage géologique d'Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859). Exemplaire enrichi, en couverture, d'un ENVOI DE L'AUTEUR, non signé. La comparaison graphologique ne laisse aucun doute sur sa paternité : "à Monsieur Juncker à Poullaouen, de la part de l'auteur". Chrétien-Auguste Juncker (1791-1865), savant et ingénieur en chef des Mines, fut directeur des mines de Poullaouen et Huelgoat, dans le Finistère, entre 1816-1841 ; Humboldt, qui y avait été accueilli en 1813, remarqua la grande ressemblance entre les "terres rouges" de ces mines et le minerai argentifère de Potosi au Pérou. Ce type de découverte sert le propos de son Essai géognostique, dans lequel il exprime sa pensée géologique et tente, pour la première fois, de comparer les roches de l'Ancien et du Nouveau Mondes. Si la doctrine "neptunienne" de son maître Werner s'aperçoit en filigrane, Humboldt a néanmoins pris ses distances. Il affirme la théorie magmatique du volcanisme et fait apparaitre deux concepts fondamentaux de la géologie dynamique : celui de roches endogènes (éruptives) et celui de roches exogènes (sédimentaires). Il démontre ainsi les relations entre le volcanisme et les structures terrestres. Première de couverture recollé. Manque angulaire en quatrième de couverture, déchirure sans manque à un feuillet. DSB VI-554; Ward & Carozzi, n°1136; Poggendorff I, 1158. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
