        Chemical recreations: a series of amusing and instructive experiments, which may be performed easily, safely, and at little expense...

      Richard Griffin & Co., et al. 1824 With 6 plates. Original printed boards, soiled but in good condition, joints tender; plates and title page show some browning. Untrimmed and partially unopened. With the bookplate of the Essex Institute and the 1824 signature of F[rancis] Peabody. Third edition of this charming book intended for the instruction of young students. In addition to setting forth the basics of chemistry, compounds, and apparatus, it proposes a number of experiments to illustrate various techniques and processes. And wonderful are those experiments. For example, ?Immerse a piece of gold ? a coin will do ? in a glass of mercury. After a few seconds, take it out: it will be apparently transformed into silver. Drop the silver - looking metal into a little diluted nitric acid....? Another experiments shows how charcoal burns so brilliantly in oxygen, and how to produce carbonic acid. Make sure you have all the ingredients before starting you experiments! Griffin (1802 - 1877) was brought up as a bookseller and later became a chemist and publisher, chiefly interested in popularizing chemistry for a wider audience. ?He devised many new and simple forms of chemical apparatus, and did much in introducing scientific methods into commercial processes? (DNB).

        Lunga, importante lettera autografa dell'architetto Lorenzo Nottolini (Capannori, 1787 - 1851) indirizzata all'Avv. Luigi Matteucci in data 23 novembre 1824.

      Lunga lettera in formato cm.24,7x18,7, compilata su due di quattro facciate, rispettivamente su 28 e 29 righe, indirizzata, come compare dall'indirizzo alla quarta facciata "A Sua Eccellenza il Sig. Avvocato Cavaliere Luigi Matteucci Ministro Plenipotenziario di S.M. il Re di Francia". La lettera è spedita da Lucca in data 23 novembre 1824, e presenta firma chiara ed estesa. La missiva riveste notevole interesse in quanto si riferisce ad un momento cruciale del progetto inerente il nuovo acquedotto per la città di Lucca, ancora oggi esistente e noto proprio sotto il nome di "Acquedotto del Nottolini", progetto che, per la sua ampiezza, coinvolgeva direttamente sia il Granducato di Toscana che il Ducato di Lucca. In una grafìa assai minuta ma ben intellegibile, il Nottolini scrive al Matteucci di essersi recato a Pisa, dove Pazzini sta ultimando il lavoro commissionato a lui ed allo stesso Nottolini da parte della Deputazione Toscana, ma lamenta vigorosamente l'opposizione nel Ducato di Lucca, segnatamente del Primo Ministro Ascanio Mansi (Lucca, 1773 - 1840). Questi si rifiuta di concedere i pochi fondi necessari ad ultimare lavori di livellazione, ed ha inoltre nominato Consiglieri di Stato Biagio Gigliotti, Pietro Cenami e l'Avvocato Pellegrini, anche quest'ultimo contrario al progetto. Tali nomine sono avvenute proprio in concomitanza con l'incarico ricevuto poco prima dal Matteucci, quello cioè di ambasciatore del Granducato di Toscana a Parigi presso la corte francese, e ciò ha privato in tutta evidenza il Nottolini del principale sostenitore del suo progetto idrico. Nottolini riferisce poi di un pranzo tenutosi alcuni giorni prima a Pisa tra Leopoldo II di Lorena e Carlo Lodovico di Borbone, in cui si sarebbe manifestata l'insofferenza del Duca di Lucca verso il Mansi stesso. Comunica infine che l'intrapresa incontra lo sfavore anche del Matematico Paoli, mentre è ben visto dal nuovo direttore del Catasto, Frullani. Lettera importante, accorata, che fornisce un quadro assai nitido delle grandi difficoltà incontrate dal Nottolini nella realizzazione del celebre Acquedotto. "Lorenzo Nottolini (Capannori, 6 maggio 1787 ? Lucca, 12 settembre 1851) fu un celebre architetto e ingegnere, attivo soprattutto a Lucca, e noto per i suoi lavori nel campo della regimazione idrica. A lui si deve lo stato attuale della celebratissima piazza dell'Anfiteatro, tra le più frequentate attrazioni turistiche di Lucca. Nottolini nasce da Gian Domenico Nottolini e Maria Domenica Orsolini, il 6 maggio 1787, in una numerosa famiglia (sei figli) stabilitasi a Segromigno (Zone), oggi frazione di Capannori, quindi nel territorio delle cosiddette sei miglia allora amministrativamente parte integrante della città di Lucca. La circostanza di essere rimasto orfano di padre in età giovanile e di essersi quindi trasferito in città presso uno zio prete gli facilitò l'accesso al prestigioso Seminario Arcivescovile, dove si interessò soprattutto agli studi tecnici. Al Seminario si trovavano allora eccellenti maestri in queste discipline, ed il giovane Nottolini si mise presto in luce. Nello stesso seminario tre dei cinque fratelli maturarono una vocazione sacerdotale, e l'unica sorella divenne in seguito monaca. In seguito si iscrisse all'Università di Lucca, seguendo, nella facoltà fisico matematica, il corso per divenire agrimensore. Nel 1807 uno dei suoi maestri, Giovanni Lazzarini, era al servizio della allora Principessa di Lucca e Piombino, Elisa Baciocchi, sorella di Napoleone Bonaparte. Oberato di lavoro, richiese di poter assumere il ventenne Nottolini come assistente al cantiere della Villa Reale di Marlia. L'incarico durò diversi anni, fino al completamento dei lavori. Nel 1810 terminava gli studi ottenendo il diploma di agrimensore. Fu subito assunto nella pubblica amministrazione come assistente dell'ingegnere capo. Ma solo un anno dopo Nottolini otteneva una borsa di studio accordatagli dal Principe Felice Baciocchi. Poté così frequentare il corso di Architettura presso l'Accademia delle Belle Arti di Firenze, dove conobbe Canova. L'esperienza fiorentina non fu molto felice ed il Nottolini decise di spostarsi a Roma presso l'Accademia di San Luca. Dal 1812 al 1817 fu quasi costantemente a Roma dove oltre allo studio dei monumenti, che informarono profondamente la sua visione neoclassica dell'architettura, poté fare delle conoscenze molto utili al proseguimento della carriera in quei tempi di grandi rivolgimenti. Tra l'altro ebbe modo di presentarsi a Maria Luisa di Borbone - Spagna per la quale progettò il rifacimento della facciata di un palazzo. Maria Luisa di Borbone, in seguito al Congresso di Vienna, venne investita del titolo di Duchessa di Lucca e ritenne di nominare proprio il Nottolini Architetto Regio della Casa Reale e Corte (1818). Due anni dopo ricevette anche la nomina ad Ingegnere del Consiglio delle Acque, Strade e Macchie per il primo Dipartimento. Per circa trent'anni fu il principale architetto del Ducato di Lucca, realizzando numerosi lavori e rilevando e studiando capillarmente i problemi idraulici, maturando una notevole esperienza sul campo. In città il suo lavoro più noto è lo svuotamento delle rovine dell'Anfiteatro romano per la realizzazione di un mercato, oggi la Piazza dell'Anfiteatro o Piazza del Mercato. L'antico Anfiteatro, nel corso dei secoli, era stato completamente invaso dalle costruzioni, anche nello spazio destinato all'arena (un esempio di questo tipo di reimpiego è ancora conservato a Firenze con le Torri dei Peruzzi). Grazie al lavoro di Nottolini, la piazza ellittica, con le case che ricalcano il giro delle fondazioni delle tribune, in riuscitissimo equilibrio fra la freddezza neoclassica dell'imitazione dell'antico e il fascino della rovina di ispirazione romantica, hanno fatto dell'Anfiteatro, una volta tanto meritatamente, una delle mete più frequentate dal turismo. Altra impresa di grande rilevanza è l'Acquedotto (1823 - 1851), opera ancora esistente nella sua mo

The Lord Dalhousie provenance has an additional collection attraction beyond the obvious importance and rarity of these volumes relating to Canada's early history. Dalhousie is considered the first patron of the arts in Canada. This is supported by an exhibition organized by René Villeneuve, Associate Curator, Canadian Art, at the National Gallery of Canada - Lord Dalhousie: Art Patron and Collector 15 Feb 2008 - 11 May 2008. George Ramsay, ninth Earl of Dalhousie, served as Lieutenant- Governor of Nova Scotia (1816-1820), then as Governor-in-Chief of British North America (1820-1828). During his twelve years in Canada, Dalhousie both commissioned and collected a stunning variety of artworks. Featuring some 135 works from his collection, this exhibition consists of an array of watercolours and wash drawings, engravings and lithographs, silhouettes, architectural drawings, models, and decorative pieces, all evidence of Dalhousie's unique point of view as patron and collector, his diverse interests, and his influence on the development of art in Canada. These now rare and historically important Canadian printed newspapers include many laws and legal issues reported for the first time publicly relating primarily to Lower Canada. Add to this, the excellent provenance of Dalhousie who as the Governor -in-Chief of Canada (1819-28) the top "law maker" in Canada. A beautiful set in very good+ condition!George Ramsay (1770-1838), 9th Earl of Dalhousie, Lieutenant-Governor of Nova Scotia and subsequently Governor-in-Chief of Canada (1819-28), entered the 3rd Dragoon Guards in 1788; in 1794 he became Lieutenant-colonel of the 2nd Foot; in 1809 he attained the rank of Major-general, and in 1830 that of general. He fought throughout the Revolutionary and Peninsular Wars, and was present at the battle of Waterloo after which he began a career in administration.In 1816 he was appointed lieutenant-governor of Nova Scotia; and from 1819 to 1828 he was governor-in-chief of Canada.Known for his authoritarian views, Dalhousie clashed with the French Canadian majority led by Louis-Joseph Papineau. He was recalled in 1828, and a British parliamentary committee was formed to deal with the Canadian situation. During his tenure he founded Dalhousie College (later Dalhousie University, 1863) in 1818 and he was instrumental in founding in 1824 the Quebec Literary and Historical Society, the first learned society in Canada. After leaving Canada he was appointed commander-in-chief in India in 1829; and in 1830 he was elected captain-general of the Royal Company of Archers, the king's bodyguard for Scotland. He died at Dalhousie Castle on March 21, 1838.It is interesting to note that the start date of the newspaper sequences coincide with Dalhousie's decision to take a leave of absence. The permission for this leave was granted in 1823, but he postponed it until June 1824. It is possible therefore that his subscription was taken out initially to keep him abreast of political developments in Canada while he was away from the country, and they were thus an important source of political intelligence to him during this period.W. Stewart Wallace, ed., The Encyclopedia of Canada, Vol. II, Toronto, University Associates of Canada, 1948, 411p., p. 174. David Evans: The Canadian Encyclopedia.The population of Canada in 1821 the population of Lower Canada is 397,600; of Upper Canada is 129,100.The Quebec MercuryOn November 19, 1804, the editor of the future 'The Quebec Mercury', Thomas Cary, published a prospectus announcing a new English-language weekly paper. He explained that the paper would be published every Saturday evening beginning in January 1805. Subscription information, advertising rates and the paper's content were indicated in the prospectus. It also explained the general principles that were to guide the new paper: veneration of the British Constitution, respect for and submission to the local laws and colonial governments, respect for social order, and respect for the individual.From 1828 to 1848 the Mercury was owned jointly by Thomas Cary and George-Paschal Desbarats. It was to become a key political tool for the Tories, vigorously denouncing the initiatives of the Canadian Party and ran until 1863. In addition to 'Le Canadien' (1806-1893) it was the first really political newspaper printed in Canada.The Quebec Gazette, founded by William Brown in 1764, is the oldest newspaper in north America. It had semi-official status and continued until 1823, when it was replaced by the Quebec Official Gazette. Brown, born in 1737 at Nunton, Dumfires and Galloway, received an annual payment of £50 from the colonial authorities for official publications, and went on to publish numerous books, pamphlets, catechisms and the rare Quebec almanacks.Lande 2104.

        Ourika.

      Paris, Ladvocat, Libraire de Son Altesse Serenissime Monseigneur le Duc de Chartres (Imprimerie et fonderie de J. Pinard), 1824.. In-12, plein veau violine de l'epoque, reliure romantique "a la cathedrale", fers rocaille dores sur le dos, plats entierement garnis d'une plaque a froid, grande rosace centrale encadree d'ogives et filets d'encadrement dores, dentelle sur les coupes et les chasses, tranches dorees, 172 p. (faux-titre et titre inclus), (8) p. de catalogue editeur. Edition originale de librairie, comportant la mention "publie au profit d'un etablissement de charite" au verso du faux-titre. Une edition privee anterieure aurait ete imprimee a 25 exemplaires. Claire de Duras ne comptait pas faire carriere dans la litterature ; c'est a contrecoeur et afin d'empecher les possibilites de plagiat, qu'elle ceda aux pressions de son ami Chateaubriand en publiant ce roman compose a la campagne, a la suite d'une maladie. "Le premier ecrivain a donner sa voix a une femme de couleur victime des prejuges raciaux. Ourika retrace l'histoire saisissante d'une jeune Senegalaise ramenee en France (...). Goethe avait ete bouleverse par ce roman. Si, deux siecles apres sa parution, il continue de nous emouvoir, c'est parce qu'il touche un des points les plus profonds de l'art : le desespoir de ne jamais atteindre la liberte dans un milieu determine et determinant. Voila pourquoi Ourika d'un cote plonge ses racines dans le XVIIe siecle francais, chez Racine, La Rochefoucauld, Mme de La Fayette, tandis que de l'autre cote il regarde vers Sartre et Camus. C'est l'examen clinique d'une outsider, de l'eternel etranger dans la societe humaine" (Benedetta Craveri, 'Ourika', GF, 2010). (Escoffier, 'Mouvement romantique', n°497. Vicaire, III, 535). Petite tache d'encre en marge des 8 dern. feuillets. Bel exemplaire, dans une fine reliure romantique a la cathedrale de l'epoque. Le catalogue editeur a ete conserve..

        Rosa Rubiginosa nemoralis / L'Eglantine des bois [Small flowered Eglantine]

      Firmin Didot, Paris 1824 - Stipple engraving printed in black, after Redouté, printed by Rémond. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling. A rare uncoloured impression from the first edition of 'Les Roses': Redouté's most famous work, and perhaps the most celebrated flower book of all time. Pierre-Joseph Redouté, the most successful flower painter of all time, produced a work that was not only of great artistic merit, but also formed an invaluable scientific recordl. Redouté described and figured almost all the important roses known in his day, and included were many of the ancestors of today's roses. "The plates in 'Les Roses' have artistic value, botanical and documentary value, both for the species and cultivars still surviving and for those that have disappeared' (Gisele de la Roche). The roses used as specimens for the work were taken from the collections of Thory, the Malmaison gardens, and from other collections around Paris. Many of the flowers were novelties in Redouté's time, and a number were dedicated to the memory of his friends and acquaintances, such as l'Héritier de Brutelle and Ventenat. The plates of 'Les Roses' were executed by means of stipple engraving, a method ideally suited to render the nuances of tone found in Redouté's original water-colours. During a trip to London, he met the renowned engraver Francesco Bartolozzi and learned that the most successful impressions of stipple engravings came from well-used plates. Redouté's printers therefore struck a limited number of black plates to take the edge off the plate before printing in colours. This print was printed in black on ochre-tinted paper. The ochre tint has subsequently been removed to reveal Redouté's full mastery of the stipple-engraving technique that this image so effortlessly demonstrates. Cf. Cleveland Collections 807; cf. Dunthorne p 232; cf. Hunt, Redoutéana 19; Hunt, Printmaking in the Service of Botany 25; Nissen BBI 1599; Pritzel 7455; Ray, French 89; Stafleu & Cowan TL2 8747. [Attributes: First Edition]

This classic treatise is an incomparable guide to English legal education during the last quarter of the seventeenth century. Written at a time when formal English legal education had reached a low point, it prescribed a self-directed course of study based on reading, compiling commonplace books, attending courts, speaking with lawyers and attending an office or chambers. North, a member of a powerful political family, was a respected member of the Middle Temple and an important chronicler of the restoration-era legal community.
