        Autograph manuscript from <em>The Shepherd's Calendar.</em>

      1824. Autograph manuscript being a large leaf from the draft for The Shepherd's Calendar, 'Class IV. Dogs'. Pps. 5 & 6 written on 1½ pp, large folio (377 x 240 mms), laid onto paper. The Shepherd's Calendar was published in Blackwood's Magazine, February 1824. It described the world and the traditions of the Ettrick Forest sheep-farming district where Hogg lived. It's chapters were published in Blackwood's over many years from 1823 and collected in book form in 1829. This manuscript has some great Borders stories about dogs eg "the late Mr Steel's nephew in Peebles had a bitch...whose feats in taking home sheep fro the neighbouring famrs into the market at Peebles by herself form innumerable anecdotes in that vicinity" He then recounts some amazing tales.... James Hogg (1770-1835), know as The Ettrick Shepherd, was an author, poet and songwriter. He was born at Ettrick in the Scottish Borders and always preferred his family and Borders farm to the Edinburgh literati. He became a great friend of Sir Walter Scott and his writing brought him great literary acclaim throughout the UK, his most famous books being The Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner(1824) - the same year this manuscript was written.

        Manuscript - Victualling of French Royal Frigate "Amphritite" - Slaves, Zanzibar Cloves, Coffee & Sugar

      France, 1824. La Frégate du Roi L'Amphitrite États des Consommations faites pendant le mois de Décembre 1824 et que restent Abord le 1e janvier 1825. [Royal Frigate Amphritite - Statement of Consumption for December 1824] Brest, December 1824 - 1 January 1825. Signed manuscript chart which records and tallies the consumption of supplies used by French royal frigate Amphritite, specifically for maintenance, repair, and sea battle. Text is in French. Folio. Single leaf laid watermarked paper made by D & C Blauw, measuring 51,5 x 40 cm. Signed in the original by Lieutenant C. Laplace. Very good condition, crisp and bright, a most uncommon mariner's log. This French frigate known as L?'Amphitrite sailed a dangerous route between Île Bourbon (now Réunion), India, and France, transporting settlers, slaves, as well as cargo of Zanzibar cloves, coffee, and sugar. [Slavery would be abolished in Réunion 23 years later, on 20th December 1848, after which indentured workers were brought from South India, among other regions.] This chart, penned onboard the French frigate Amphitrite by an astute marine, provides unique insight into preparation for life at sea, specifically in regards to the maintenance and mechanical operations of sorts. The log itemizes supplies used for the operation and maintenance of the vessel in the month of December 1824 and surely proved valuable victualling supplies upon arrival at the vessel's next port. It is neatly organized to show materials used by each of the mariners in charge of a specific function of the ship, be it the sailmaker, the shipwright, the blacksmith or coxswain. For example, the "maître de charpentier" or shipwright uses oak planks and several types of nails, the "capitaine d'armes" or coxswain uses powder, lead and linens, the "maître de armurier" or gunsmith uses iron wire, oil, nail heads, the "maître des voiliers" or sailmaker uses a great deal of canvas and thread, and the "chef de timonerie" or wheelhouse master also makes use of canvas and drapery. The "maître forgeron" or blacksmith has not consumed any supplies. The list of items attributed to the "maître d'équipage" or boatswain (warrant officer on a warship), however, is the most substantial and includes such things as lead cork, painting oil, fishing line, 14 thicknesses of rope for masts, sails and such, heavy cable, candlesticks, 126,000 furs, 12 mallets, sewing thread, and other articles needed for rigging. An annotation to the right margin, signed by the lieutenant in charge of the work, C. Laplace, and dated 1 January 1825, indicates that the vessel was painted; her colours being black, white and green. Only a few months after this document was made, she was attacked by pirates. Off the coast of Liberia, at 4 degrees north latitude and 19 degrees west longitude, on 22 April 1825, Amphritrite was pillaged by the crew of a Columbian corsair, who took sugar, coffee, cloves, victuals, linens, beds, trunks, a large boat, and the captain's watch. They also took hostage the ship's apprentice. Historical accounts contemporary to this document record of some passengers onboard Amphitrite either departing from, or arriving at Île Bourbon (Réunion), including the following examples: L'Amphitrite - 01 September 1820 - from Saint-Denis on Île Bourbon to Nantes in France • Achille Lefèvre - Aide de camp du Gouverneur [Governor's Aide-de-camp] Note: «passager aux frais du Roi [King paid passenger's fare]» • Antoine Puissant - Négociant [Trader/Merchant] Note: «ayant avec lui le nommé Denis Moius, Indien [accompanied by an Indian man]» • François Quesnel - Médecin [Physician] L?'Amphitrite - 28 November 1821 - from Saint-Denis on Île Bourbon to Nantes in France • Esthère - «Femme de couleur avec une domestique esclave nommée Fanore [Woman of colour with a domestic slave called Fanore» • Amanda - [No further detail] L'Amphitrite - 22 December 1822 - from St Denis on Île Bourbon to Mananjary in Madagascar • Arnoux - [No further detail] L?'Amphitrite - 25 January 1823 - from St Denis on Île Bourbon to Calcutta in India • Eléonard Adam - Habitant [Resident] L?'Amphitrite - 07 January 1826 - from St Denis on Île Bourbon to Pondicherry in India • Ernest Bartro - Négociant [Trader/Merchant] • Paul Blin - Commis négociant - [Committed Trader/Merchant] • Paul Donat - Négociant [Trader/Merchant] • Pierre Faro - «Coiffeur Indien» [Indian Hairstylist] The Annales Maritime et Coloniales vol. 21 and 25 record a frigate Amphitrite on a voyage from Bourbon to the French colonial settlement of Pondichéry (Puducherry) in September 1816, and encountering winds in the region of the Seychelles in April 1817. A total of 1376 French naval ships and frigates were launched between 1661 and 1815, with 969 different names. By tradition ships-of-the-line were given masculine names and frigates feminine ones. Unsurprisingly, names relating to the sea constituted a continuous theme; the first French ship to bear the name Océan was launched in 1756. Under Louis XIV ships were readily given names evoking their qualities and handling (Adroit, Ardent,Excellent, Léger, Prompt). These disappeared for ships of the line in the Regency but became common for frigates, reflecting their new prominence in naval tactics. Swiftness was evoked by names associated with flight (Oiseau, Hirondelle, Aigrette). Mythological names, with marine associations accounted for 145 vessels including Neptune, Néréide, Nymphe, Amphitrite, Protée, Thétis, Jason and Argonaute. No less than six different vessels bore the name Trident. Another category related to the heavens (Lune, Etoile, Vénus, Astrée, Pléide) and the winds (Aquilon, Borée, Eole, Zéphir). Marine hazards could be evoked directly (Ecueil, Orage, Tourbillon) or by mythological reference (Sirène, Méduse); so too, names associated with chance and magic, whether the vagaries of weather or the fortunes of war (Destin, Fortune, Hasard, Circé, Médée, Magicienne, Fée). Celebrated Dutch papermakers Dirk and Cornelis Blauw operated several mills, including De Herder (The Shepherd) and De Ijver (The Diligence) at Zaandjk, and De Oude Blauw (The Old Blue) at Wormeveer. However, the countermark "D & C BLAUW" has been copied and used by many different French papermakers, mainly in the 18th century and also in the 19th. En 1821, le baron Albin Reine Roussin (1781-1854) fut nommé au commandement de la frégate l?'Amazone et de la station navale sur les côtes de l?'Amérique méridionale. Pendant cette campagne, le capitaine Roussin fut promu au grade de contre-amiral (17 août 1822). Rentré en France le 31 décembre 1822, le rear-admiral Roussin arborait de nouveau son pavillon sur la frégate l?'Amphitrite, le 6 juillet 1823. Il ne réclamait pas de repos; on trouvait tout naturel de ne pas lui en accorder. Sur l?'Amphitrite et sur l?'Amazone, qui lui fut bientôt rendue, coursier fidèle dont il connaissait les allures, Roussin prit part aux grandes manoeuvres de l?'escadre d?'évolutions rassemblée sous les ordres d?'un illustre maître, le vice-amiral baron Duperré. La campagne fut courte: commencée le 6 juillet, elle se termina le 27 septembre [1823]. Au mois de juin 1824, il prit, à Brest, le commandement d?'une division de l?'escadre du vice-amiral Duperré, qui manoeuvra pendant trois mois dans l?'océan et la Méditerranée. Le vaisseau le Trident, commandé par M. Morice, capitaine de vaisseau; les frégates l?'Amphitrite, la Vestale, la Nymphe, l?'Armide, et la goélette la Fauvette, sous les ordres de MM. le comte d?'Oysonville, Pelleport, Cuvillier, Villaret de Joyeuse, capitaines de vaisseau, et Mauclerc, lieutenant de vaisseau, sont partis de Brest le 16 juillet 1824. M. le vice-amiral baron Duperré a son pavillon à bord du Trident, et celui du contre-amiral baron Roussin flotte à bord de l?'Amphitrite. Ces bâtiments se rendent devant Cadix. . Very Good.

        GENERAL REPORT ON THE RISE & PROGRESS OF THE PRESENT FREE GOVERNMENT OF BUENOS AYRES [manuscript title]

      Buenos Aires, 1824. Quarto. Contemporary three-quarter morocco and marbled boards. Covers faded, spine lightly abraded, paper label chipped. Internally very clean, report and appendix in a clear, legible hand in ink; additional contemporary notes throughout the text in pencil. Text preceded by twenty- six blank leaves, with tabs for the letters of the alphabet, one indented on each leaf (one blank leaf has pasted remnant of printed text). In fine condition. In a half morocco and cloth box. This manuscript report prepared by British consul-general Woodbine Parish for the British government regarding the political and economic situation in Argentina in the mid- 1820s was a crucial step in the recognition of Argentina's statehood by any European power. Parish was an experienced British diplomat who, prior to going to South America, had served in diplomatic roles in Sicily, Naples, Paris, Aix-la-Chapelle, and the Ionian Islands. "In 1823 the government determined to send out political agents to the Spanish American States, and Parish was appointed commissioner and consul-general to Buenos Ayres....After he had sent home a report upon the state of the people and their newly constituted government, full powers were sent to him in 1824 to negotiate with them a treaty of amity and commerce. This was concluded on 2 Feb. 1825 at Buenos Ayres, and was the first treaty made with any of the new states of America, and the first recognition of their national existence by any European power" - DNB. The present manuscript is evidently that report, which persuaded the British Government to recognize Argentina and impressed the Foreign Office sufficiently that they promoted Parish to negotiate it. Parish's account begins with a brief critical history of the colonies under Spanish rule. He writes: "The origin of the events which have separated the colonies from Spain may be traced to a variety of well known causes: oppressed, misgoverned and misguided as they long had been, it was not to be expected that in this enlightened and liberal age they would much longer continue in the state of degraded and odious subjection in which they had been hitherto held." In regards to the vice royalty of Buenos Aires declaring independence from Spain, he adds that internal "public opinion was long undecided as to the course to be adopted….But, though the doctrines of liberty were declared, it was…found to be no easy task to establish a government for a people brought up in such a state of servility and debasement as hardly to have a distant notion of the blessings of free institutions." Parish mentions various military operations between 1815 and 1820, leading to a state of disorganization and disorder. It was under these conditions that a government was formed in 1821 which focused on affairs in Buenos Aires and good provincial administration. "A radical and systematic reform commenced which has produced in little more than three years results beyond the most sanguine expectations: From a state of anarchy and confusion the people of Buenos Ayres are now raised to a prosperity hitherto unknown to them, and are at present in the enjoyment of the blessings of a good, well organized, and stable government." The remainder of the report is devoted to institutions which have been "established or promoted, and which give them a claim to the eternal gratitude of their countrymen." These include a representative system of government, executive power, a law on the inviolability of private property (extended to foreigners residing in the country), a general amnesty, and the official gazette "in which all the acts of the government were laid before the public. This was a new measure and obtained for them a very general degree of confidence." For all of these institutions, additional documentation is provided in the appendix in the original Spanish and often in English translation. Parish is particularly impressed with cultural changes under independence. "But the most striking change which has been effected at Buenos Ayres is that with respect to religious opinions: the power of the priesthood under the dominion of Spain was almost absolute and the most intolerant doctrines of the Catholic Religion alone were promulgated and severely maintained. Freedom of conscience and of opinions has arisen out of the revolution." The author is equally impressed with the state of education, writing that "no measure however of this government is of greater consequence than the exertions for the promotion of education." He notes the establishment of public schools, colleges for the moral and natural sciences and a university for the clergy. Parish adds that a library of approximately 20,000 volumes "has been opened to the public which is well arranged and is daily increasing and several scientific societies have been formed....It is a new feeling in this country and acts with the greater forces after the state of ignorance and seclusion in which this people had been so long kept under the old Spanish system under which even the importation of books excepting upon religious subjects was utterly prohibited." The report includes descriptions of liberty of the press, administration of justice, confederation and population of the provinces, finances (additional information for which is provided in the appendix and the addenda), the Banda Oriental, the war department, and the country's foreign relations. Regarding international relations, the report indicates that "the foreign relations of Buenos Ayres have been confined to treaties of alliance and defence with some of the other free states of South America ['Chile and Colombia only' is added in pencil] and to an exchange of diplomatic missions with the United States." Parish notes that for other countries, only official representatives authorized by their governments can negotiate with the newly independent government of Buenos Aires. In concluding, Parish provides a positive review of the current conditions in Argentina and the potentials for British involvement in the future. "The errors of the past will be shunned for the future; and the benefits of a good government which has been at last established are now quite sufficiently known and understood to ensure the support of all classes of the people. Every day adds to its more and physical strength, as education advances so will the state, as foreign commerce increases, so will the prosperity and resources of the country. Nature has done her utmost in climate and situation, and it only remains for civilized man in these regions to make the most of those inestimable blessings which providence on the one hand has bestowed upon him and a paternal government on the other is anxious by all possible means to improve." After this report was received by the British government for internal consideration, Parish was charged with negotiating a treaty of amity and commerce, in which Great Britain recognized Argentina, the first formal recognition of any of the former Spanish colonies in the Americas by a European power, and the second country in the Western Hemisphere with which England had diplomatic relations (the other being the United States). "As a mark of his Majesty's gracious approbation" Parish was appointed chargé d'affaires to the new republic, a position he held from 1825 until 1832. His clear and well documented report, including appendix and addenda, along with his positive impressions for British advancement, ensured his continued diplomatic service in Buenos Aires. In 1838, his full account on Argentina's history, geography, and geology, BUENOS AYRES AND THE PROVINCES OF THE RIO DE LA PLATA: THEIR PRESENT STATE, TRADE, AND DEBT, was published. In 1837, Parish was knighted for his diplomatic services in Latin America.

        SIX MONTHS' RESIDENCE AND TRAVELS IN MEXICO; CONTAINING REMARKS ON THE PRESENT STATE OF NEW SPAIN

      London, 1824. Folding frontis. Modern half morocco and paper covered boards, morocco label, gilt. Slight offsetting on maps and plates, but generally a clean, very good copy. Sabin states that Bullock was "the first English traveller in Mexico since Father Gage in 1640." He arrived there in 1823, landing at Veracruz, ascended to Mexico City, and spent most of his visit in the city or its immediate surroundings in the valley of Mexico. The text details much of contemporary Mexican life, while the fine plates, based on Bullock's own drawings, show natives and landscapes. Particularly striking is the panoramic view of the valley of Mexico, which serves as a folding frontispiece. The two folding maps show the city of Mexico as it was when Bullock visited it, and ancient Mexico City. The attractive colored plates show Mexican dress.

        TALES OF A TRAVELLER. By Geoffrey Crayon, Gent. [pseudonym] ... In Two Volumes ...

      London: John Murray, Albemarle-Street,. 1824. original blue-gray boards with recent gray spines, original printed paper labels (rubbed and chipped) preserved, untrimmed.. Lord Rancliffe's copy (probably George, Lord Rancliffe 1785-1850). with his signatures at top right edges of front covers and top right. edges of each title page. Boards worn at edges, a very good copy with. clean, fine interior. (#151580). First edition. An important edition of the major repository of Irving's supernatural stories, ten in all, including "The Adventure of the German Student," which Bleiler proclaims "one of the early masterpieces of horror" and "The Devil and Tom Walker," which, as "one of Irving's best weird tales, takes its rightful place among devil stories popular in the nineteenth century" (Benjamin Franklin Fisher IV, Bleiler [ed], Supernatural Fiction Writers: Fantasy and Horror, p. 689). "Irving was America's first major literary celebrity and enjoyed a long, successful career free from the kind of tragedy that tormented contemporaries such as Hawthorne and Poe, though it eventually added a romantic glow to their reputations -- everyone loves a tormented genius. Irving, as a master of both comic and tragic material, has suffered in posterity from the difficulty readers have in reconciling the two. Like so many other writers who have appreciated how humor and horror serve as foils for each other (consider Dickens, Twain, W. W. Jacobs, Barry Pain among others) his dark side tends to be minimized in the pubic eye. This collection shows both sides, and also shows Irving at work misdirecting readers in order to shield himself from the charge so commonly directed at fiction in this period, that it was frivolous nonsense, or worse." - Robert Eldridge. "Irving's supernatural fiction is still fresh -- amusing or horrible as the case may be -- and much worth reading." - E. F. Bleiler, Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, pp. 224-5. This British edition includes five pieces (one of which is "The Adventure of the German Student") which are not in the first U.S. edition, published in Philadelphia by Carey and Lea in 1824 in four paper-covered parts. A revised and extended two-volume U.S. edition, including the five pieces omitted from the first U.S. edition, was published in New York by C. S. Van Winkle in 1825. "TALES OF A TRAVELLER (1824), much neglected and often maligned by critics, contains some of Irving's best art in the supernatural mode." - Fisher, Supernatural, p. 688. Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 2-92. Barron (ed), Horror Literature 1-47 (in reference to "The German Student" as a tale of terror). Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 885.

        [MANUSCRIPT DIARY OF SARAH BOWDOIN DEARBORN, KEPT IN LISBON WHILE HER HUSBAND, HENRY DEARBORN, WAS SERVING AS U.S. MINISTER TO PORTUGAL]

      Lisbon, 1824. Quarto. Original green boards. Spine perished, front board detached, slight wear to extremities. Very good. In a half morocco and cloth box. A previously unknown diary of Henry Dearborn's wife, kept while he was serving as minister plenipotentiary in Portugal. Dearborn (1751-1829) had a distinguished career as an officer in both the American Revolution and the War of 1812. He served as Secretary of War, collector of the port of Boston, and as a congressman from Massachusetts. In 1822 he was appointed minister to Portugal by James Monroe, a post he held for two years. He was accompanied in Portugal by his wife, Sarah Bowdoin (widow of James Bowdoin, 1752-1811). During her first year in Lisbon, Sarah Dearborn kept no diary, and she explains this fact in the first entry of the present diary. Beginning on July 9, 1823 and continuing through the voyage home a year later, she kept the present daily journal. Entries range in length from one or two sentences to two full pages and more. Almost every entry describes in detail the Dearborns' dinner companions, noting the positions of the men, and the social attributes of the women. The arrival and departure of dignitaries is always noted. The diarist comments on local customs, houses, living arrangements (of both the foreign officials and of the locals), street crime, etc. She was a close observer of the domestic situations of her companions: their children, personalities, education, and general accomplishments. In all, a superb journal, offering a fine insight into the public as well as the domestic life of an American diplomat's family in western Europe in the early 19th century. The journal is completely unknown, having descended in the Dearborn family until the present time.

Laromiguière, E.B. de Condillac, and John Locke. He was soon impressed also by the Common Sense school in Scottish philosophy and by François Maine de Biran and Pierre-Paul Royer-Collard, whose assistant he later became. After teaching briefly at the École Normale, Cousin travelled in Germany (1817?18), where he met and was influenced by G.W.F. Hegel and Friedrich Schelling. In 1820, after antiliberal political feeling grew in France, Cousin was deprived of his assistantship, and the École Normale was closed in 1822. He then went to Germany, where for six months he was imprisoned (1824?25) on a political charge still not identified. In the early 1820s he wrote Fragments philosophiques (1826), completed editions of the works of the Greek Neoplatonic philosopher Proclus and of René Descartes, and began his translation of the works of Plato.Reinstated at the reopened École Normale (1826) in 1828, Cousin lectured on philosophy and won unprecedented popularity. For the next 20 years he dominated the field in France. He became a member of the council of public instruction (1830), of the Académie Française (1831), and of the Académie des Sciences Morales et Politiques (1832). In 1832 he was named a peer of France and two years later was made a director of the École Normale. After a visit to Germany to study educational methods, he drafted the bill (presented by the statesman François Guizot in 1833) that brought about landmark reforms in French primary education. When Guizot became prime minister in 1840, Cousin was appointed minister of public instruction.(britannica.com)'Cousin launched the modern French Descartes revival with his enthousiastic but hasty edition of the philosopher's work, which served by nearly 80 years' (Greogor Sebba.

Early inscription with shelf mark "S.f.a 48." Library stamp of the Societé de Lecture of Geneva to title. Library label (Histoire Naturelle Botanique #1101) to rear pastedown. First Edition of this extraordinarily rare work on pharmaceutical plants. Antoine Fée was a French botanist who authored works on botany, mycology, and pharmacology. He was a member of the Royal Academy of Medicine and several learned societies, and later an instructor at teaching hospitals, firstly in Lille in 1825 then Strasbourg in 1832, when he was promoted to M.D. and professor of botany. Fée was also responsible for the botanical garden in Strasbourg until the city was taken by the Prussians at the end of their war with France. In 1874, the year of his death, Fée was elected as the president of the Société botanique de France. He first published this essay, Essai sur les Cryptogames de écorces exotiques officinales (Essay on the Cryptogams that grow on Exotic Medicinal Barks) in 1824, thereafter a supplement appeared in 1837. At the time he was working primarily as a cryptogamist; working on ferns, lichens, and fungi. In these comprehensive studies, Fée was primarily focused on tropical and medicinal plants and extensively describes lichen material which fit into these categories. Notably, many of this genus of lichen were first established by Fée. At the rear are 33 full-page plates depicting the lichen species with official Latin genus names in captions below. The illustrations are distinct and remain colorful and bright. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

First edition: apparently rare. Goldsmiths 24064. COPAC adds only the BL copy. A pamphlet justifying and explaining Simmons's allegation that at the 1823 anniversary meeting of the Society of Arts, the loyal toast to the King was attended with silence, and not the customary boyish cheers. In the writer's view, silence after the loyal toast, was nothing short of bad manners. The other 'extraordinary transaction' was the choice of a vice-president, namely William Tooke (1777-1863), the lawyer and promoter of arts and literature, and his decision to accept Simmons's resignation from membership of the Society on the grounds that the lack of cheering at the loyal toast represented a political statement.

      John & H.L. Hunt, London 1824 - TP + [iii]-v = Editor's Preface + [vii]-xi = Contents + [[1]-411, Octavo. First Edition. One of Two Theoretical Works - from his "Unfinished Papers"Besides a variety of pamphlets on a large number of topics, the only major work that Bentham polished and released for publication during his lifetime was the Introduction to the Prinicples of Morals and Legislation issued in 1789. However, he did allow two of his more theoretical works to be published after being edited from his "unfinished papers" by his hand-picked editors. This work was prepared for publication and edited by Peregrine Bingham (the other theoretical work, Rationale of Judicial Evidence was edited by John Stuart Mill). As the title states, this book deals with fallacies and outlines a number of types: Fallacies of Authority, of of Danger, of Delay, of Confusion before launching into an exhaustive treatment of the causes of these fallacies. Original boards, stained and well worn around the edges of the spine. With a printed label on the spine: "The Book of Fallacies 12s. Boards".

In Materialien für den eigenen Gebrauch, wie auch für die Mitarbeiter wurde nach und nach Alles angeschafft, was die Ausführung unterstützen konnte. Die Hülfsmittel, die sich in der deutschen Literatur fanden, glauben wir übergehen zu können, da ihre Aufzählung zu weit führen würde. Von den ausländischen wollen wir wenigstens einige nennen. So haben der Redaction die Encyklopädien, als die Encyclopaedia britannica mit Napier's reichhaltigen Supplementen - Brewster's Edinburgh Encyclopaedia mit ihren Supplementen - the Metropolitan Encyclopaedia - Nicholson's Encyclopaedia - und Gregory's Encyclopaedia viele Dienste geleistet; ein gleiches gilt von dem Edinburgh Gazetteer, den beiden biographical Dictionaries von Aikin und Chalmers, dem trefflichen Annual Register von Stockdale, den Monthly, Edinburgh und Quarterly Reviews, den Monthly und New monthly Magazines, den Annual Biography and Obituary, und den Public Characters of all Nations, welche Werke, nebst vielen andern dieser Sprache, stets vollständig zur Hand waren. Von französischen Werken benutzte die Redaction insbesondere Bayle's reichhaltiges Werk, die d'Alembert'sche Encyklopädie, die Biographie universelle, das Dictionnaire historique, das Dictionnaire des Sciences medicales, das Dictionnaire des hommes vivans, die Brüsseler Galerie des Contemporains, den vollständigen Moniteur, das Annuaire historique, die Tablettes universelles, die Biographie nouvelle des Contemporains von Arnault,Jay,Jouy u.A., und ausserdem Vieles, was die ältere und neueste französische Literatur darbot. Auch die ältere und neuere italienische und holländische Literatur blieb nicht unbeachtet und unbenutzt... Es ist nicht möglich, alle verbesserte, ergänzte, fortgesetzte und zum Theil umgearbeite Artikel dieser sechsten Auflage hier einzeln aufzuführen, oder die ausgemerzten anzuzeigen. In der Anmerkung nennen wir nur einige der neu hinzugekommenen oder neu abgefassten Artikel und solche, die sehr wesentliche Zusätze erhielten, so das sie fast als ganz neue Artikel anzusehen sind..." /// Ecken bestossen, Einbde. wenig berieben. Innen vereinzelte Stockflecken. In Bd.6, 10 Seiten gelockert.

        Système de Politique Positive, par Auguste Comte, ancien élève de l'écle Polytechnique, élève de Henri Saint-Simon. Tome premier. première partie. (System of Political Positivism).

      Chez les Principaux Libraires, Paris 1824 - 1 blank leaf + half title + [1]-2 = Catéchisme des Industriels + TP + [5]-8 = Avertissment de l'Auteur + [1]-189 + 1 blank leaf, Octavo. First Edition.First Edition of the First Draft of Comte's Major Work.Although stating that this is the "first part", it was in fact the only one ever published. With the extremely rare, suppressed half title and introductory leaf (pp. [1]-2) by Saint Simon. This is the first draft of the author's main work, which was re-composed, completed and finally published in as the Système de Politique Positive, ou Traité de Sociologie in 1851-54. This first attempt constitutes the 3rd part of the Catéchisme des Industriels edited by Henri Saint-Simon. After the conflict with Saint-Simon, Comte suppressed the two leaves: the half title which carries the imprint Catéchisme des Industries, 3ième cahier, and the next leaf which is the preface, written by Saint-Simon. In that preface, Saint-Simon represented the work as being inspired by his theories, but he also makes a number of severely critical remarks which almost immediately led to the famous breach between the two men. Saint-Simon published this work only with the greatest hesitation and then only with his introduction disassociating himself from its content. He felt he need to distance himself from Comte who had, for the first time and in contrast to Saint-Simon, assigned a central role to the government. Contemporary half morocco binding with dark green marbled boards and spine with five raised bands and gilt lettering and decorations. The spine is just a bit worn on the edges. With the bookplate of August Gouge on the 90 and 9192 with a 2" tear diagonal from the outer margin, affecting some text but not affecting legibility. A very lovely copy of a rare work. ADDITIONAL PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. [Attributes: First Edition]
