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.

        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.

        Posthumous Poems of Percy Bysshe Shelley

      London: John and Henry L. Hunt, 1824. Octavo, 415 pp., bound without the errata; an attractive and fresh copy in contemporary polished green calf, a few bumps and scuffs. An attractive copy of this important collection, with a short but poignant biographical notice by Mary Shelley.Shelley died in July 1822, drowned in the sea off Livorno. Mary spent the ensuing year in Genoa with Leigh Hunt and his family, but returned to London in 1823 where she was granted a small allowance by Percy's disapproving father Sir Timothy, and busied herself with literary work, including editing many of his poems and manuscripts for this edition. It includes Julian and Maddalo, The Witch of Atlas, Letter to Maria Gisborne, The Triumph of Life, Prince Athanase, Ode to Naples, Mont Blanc, as well as fifty-nine 'Miscellaneous Poems', nine 'Fragments', five translations, and Alastor (included because the original volume, published in 1816, was now so scarce that even Mary had found it difficult to track down a copy).

        A Communication of the Improvement of Government: Read Before the American Philosophical Society

      8vo. Philadelphia: Abraham Small, 1824. 8vo, 24pp. Original publisher?s wrappers, untrimmed pages, inscribed on front wrapper: ?His Excellency / The Baron de Mareuil ... with Mr. Ingersoll?s / compliments.? A fine copy. First edition. Ingersoll (1782-1862), was an American lawyer and Democratic member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Pennsylvania who championed popular democracy. Ingersoll entered electoral politics in 1811 when he was nominated for a seat on the Pennsylvania assembly by the Jeffersonian Republican party, a campaign he ultimately lost. He was a member of the Pennsylvania Assembly in 1830, and a member of the State constitutional convention in 1837. In this Communication, Ingersoll argues that the rise of commerce and an independent press have given birth to a "spirit of independence." The rapid spread of education in Europe and America creates "another empire within every state, continually seeking ascendancy," whose common interests transcend national boundaries. Ingersoll praises La Fayette, and says the American experiment proves "the voice of the people to be the voice of God." American Imprints 16665 [11]. Sabin 34728.

Going HomeCoursing is the pursuit of game or other animals by dogs—chiefly greyhounds and other sighthounds—catching their prey by speed, running by sight, but not by scent. Coursing was a common hunting technique, practised by the nobility, the landed and wealthy, and commoners with sighthounds and lurchers. In its oldest recorded form in the Western world, as described by Arrian, the sport was practised by all levels of society, as remained the case until Carolingian forest law appropriated hunting grounds, or commons, for the king, the nobility, and other land owners.Animals coursed include hares, rabbits, foxes, deer of all sorts, antelope, gazelle, jackals, wolves. Jackrabbits and coyotes are the most common animals coursed in America. Competitive coursing in Ireland, the UK and Spain has two dogs running together. In America, generally speaking three dogs are run together.Lane, British Racing Prints, pp.75-76; Tooley, 43 (National Sports of Great Britain).

An attractive copy of this important collection, with a short but poignant biographical notice by Mary Shelley.Shelley died in July 1822, drowned in the sea off Livorno. Mary spent the ensuing year in Genoa with Leigh Hunt and his family, but returned to London in 1823 where she was granted a small allowance by Percy's disapproving father Sir Timothy, and busied herself with literary work, including editing many of his poems and manuscripts for this edition. It includes Julian and Maddalo, The Witch of Atlas, Letter to Maria Gisborne, The Triumph of Life, Prince Athanase, Ode to Naples, Mont Blanc, as well as fifty-nine 'Miscellaneous Poems', nine 'Fragments', five translations, and Alastor (included because the original volume, published in 1816, was now so scarce that even Mary had found it difficult to track down a copy).

        A rare page from the original draft of Noah Webster's 1828 An American Dictionary of the English Language - the standard reference for American English

      n.p., c. 1824-1825. 8" x 10". "Autograph Manuscript (unsigned), 2 pages, 8"" x 10"", n.p., n.d., [c. 1824-1825], being a portion of a draft of An American Dictionary of the English Language (1828) with extensive edits and emendations throughout. Expected folds, with minor separations toward lower margin expertly repaired, else fine condition. A choice selection of definitions ranging from ""Biped"" to ""Bird"" Other words defined include ""Bipedial,"" ""Bipetalous,"" ""Biquadrate,"" ""Biquintile,"" ""Biradiated,"" and ""Birch,"" among others. Webster made the majority of his edits for the noun ""Birch"" cutting an entire paragraph that had read: ""This word is probably the same as bark; from the great use of birch barks among savage nations. the name was transferred to the tree, as was the name of beech to another species of three. See beech..."" Webster substituted that deleted passage with an alternate that is nearly identical what was printed in 1828: ""A genus of trees, known technically under the name Betula, of which there are four or five species; as the white or common birch- the dwarf birch - the Canada birch of which there are several varieties - the black birch."" As a whole, the draft manuscript offers an intimate understanding of Webster's editorial process. Printing and the Mind of Man observed that Noah Webster's dictionary, ""almost at once became, and has remained, the standard English dictionary in the United States"" Webster, the editors noted ""was an ardent nationalist, and...wanted to stress the political separation from Britain by the cultivation of a separate American language... Under the influence of his friend Benjamin Franklin he turned his attention to 'a reformed mode of spelling'; and although he rejected the radical phonetic innovations proposed by Franklin, he went far enough to give many printed American words a distinctive appearance... the book marked a definite advance in modern lexicography, as it included many non-literary terms and paid great attention to the language actually spoken..."" The balance of Webster's manuscript (some 450 leaves) now resides at the Pierpont Morgan Library, but at some early juncture leaves from the A and B section were separated (all that ever appeared for sale comes from this portion of the alphabet, so far as we can determine). Very few of these leaves are extant. Recently, a single page (in worse condition), sold for $8,125. (Bonhams, New York, Feb. 17, 2013, Lot 81) Offered with a copy of the corresponding page from the 1828 edition of Webster's dictionary."
