        POSTHUMOUS POEMS

      London: Printed for John and Henry L. Hunt, 1824. FIRST EDITION, First Issue (without the errata leaf found in later issue copies) n. Hardcover. 213 x 159 mm (8 3/8 x 6 1/4"). xi, [i], 415, [1] pp. Edited by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley. FIRST EDITION, First Issue (without the errata leaf found in later issue copies). LOVELY CRIMSON CRUSHED MOROCCO, ELABORATELY GILT AND INLAID, BY ZAEHNSDORF (signed on front turn-in, and with the firm's exhibition stamp on rear pastedown), covers gilt with single fillet border around a floral bower, a climbing vine at each side proliferating and entwined at head to enclose an inlaid ivory morocco rose in each corner, bottom of covers with four large leaves on stems emanating from a stippled field and with an elegant inlaid ivory morocco lily rising up toward the middle of the central panel; raised bands, spine gilt in compartments featuring a foliate stem rising from foot to head and an inlaid ivory rose in center compartment, wide gilt turn-ins with foliate tools and decorative roll, red silk pastedowns and endleaves, all edges gilt (the joints invisibly renewed). In a (slightly faded and rubbed) protective buckram chemise and red cloth slipcase with morocco lip. Front pastedown with the morocco bookplate of Paul Edward Chevalier and that of Clara and Irwin Strasburger. Granniss 78; Wise, p. 70; Ashley Library V, 88. Isolated faint printer's fingerprints, a tiny bit of fraying to silk endleaves, but an extremely attractive copy of a beautifully bound book, the binding lustrous, with virtually undetectable expert restoration, and the text fresh and bright. With an elegant Art Nouveau design and with illustrious provenance, this is a significant poetical publication in an extremely appealing binding. These poems by Shelley were gathered from his manuscripts after his death and published by his wife Mary. Among the most notable longer poems is "Julian and Maddalo," set in Venice, in which the two characters--one an optimist, the other a pessimist--are said to represent Shelley and Byron. Also here are one of Shelley's most colorful and imaginative works, "The Witch of Atlas" (which depicts a beneficent but sometimes impish sorceress), and "The Triumph of Life," left incomplete by the poet's death but nevertheless considered one of his most profound poems. Inspired by Petrarch's "Trionfi," the latter poem depicts a parade of worthies as diverse as Plato and Napoleon, interpreted by the poet's guide, Rousseau, who also details the story of his own life. The present item has an illustrious provenance: it comes from the collection of 20th century English bindings put together by Paul Chevalier, whose library of beautiful volumes was uniformly characterized by outstanding workmanship and superb condition. The sale of his books at Christie's in 1990 represented one of the best collections of British bindings brought to auction in the past half century (this was lot #120, which sold for a hammer price of $2,200).

        ALS - Eigenhändiger Brief mit Unterschrift.

      - Berlin 27.XII. 1824, 28.III. und 29.IV.1825. 4 Seiten gr.°, in kleiner Schrift eng beschrieben. Eilhard Mitscherlich (1794-1863), Chemiker, Entdecker des Isomorphismus. - Bedeutender, zweimal nach Unterbrechungen wieder aufgenommener Brief an einen Kollegen in Edinburgh (Sir David Brewster ?), u.a. über seine Untersuchungen des Schwefels (dessen Modifikationen er entdeckte) und seine Versuche zur Kupferschmelze und der Geschützgießerei. Erwähnt werden neben Anderen Arago, Berzelius, A. v. Humboldt, Magnus, Rose und Th. Thomson. - Im Jahre 1824 besuchte er Humprey Davy, Faraday, Wollaston, and Dalton in England, wo er einige Fabriken besuchte. - Der Brief beginnt mit einer Reminiszenz an seinen Aufenthalt in Edinburgh im Jahre 1824. "Me voilà dans un grand embarrase en vous adressant, mon bon ami, ma premiere lettre après notre voyage ; je desire si vivement de me soutenir dans votre amitié, dans la bonne opinion, que vous avez eue de moi, que je ne sais pas en effet, comment je peux vous exprimer assez, combien je suis sensible pour tout ce que vous avez fait pour moi pendant notre voyage et notre séjour à Edinbourg ." Nach einer Schilderung seiner beschwerlichen Rückreise (Lüttich, Kassel und Göttingen werden als Reisestationen erwähnt) kommt er auf seine Vorschungsvorhaben zu sprechen: - "Je viens de terminer les analyses des sulfures, dont je vous ai parlé; et je serai bientôt en état de publier le mémoire que vous vouliez bien prendre sous votre protection amicale. Je commencerai après l'analyse des fontes, ce travail, auquel j'ai été forcé par le Ministre de la Guerre m'était au commencement très désagréable, mais j'en suis maintenant très content; on m'a donné des echantillons des canons que l'on a essayé par des tirages; on a fait des canons avec de la fonte, provenant des charbons de bois et de cooks; des essais preliminaires m'ont donné dans toutes les fontes, provenant des cooks und quantité moindre de carbone et une quantité considérable de silicium; qui n'existe pas du tout ou seulement en petite quantité dans la fonte provenant des charbons de bois; j'ai en même tems analysé le fine-métal qui, d'après mes essais preliminaires contient encore un peu plus de carbon, que la fonte employée, mais ne contient plus de silicium ." - Nach einer dreimonatigen, durch sein rheumatisches Leiden verursachten Unterbrechnung nimmt er den Brief wieder auf mit der Nachricht, dass Berzelius seinen Besuch für den Sommer angekündigt habe; wie es um die Pläne einer gemeinsamen Schlesien-Reise stehe, könne er noch nicht sagen. - ". Nous venons de recevoir des nouvelles de Mr. Berzelius, je ne sais pas, presqu'à quel point notre voyage projecté en Silesie s'executera, mai il parait très certain, que Mr. Berzelius viendra nous voir au commencement d'Aout. Mr. Hisinger et le comte de Wachtmeister, le même, qui a fait des recherches des grénats . l'accompagneront . je desirerai bien vivement de vous voir ici pendant la présence de Mr. Berzelius; il pourrait contribuer à vous dedommager un peu des fatigues d'un grand voyage . - Ma santé est entièrement retablie, même mon mal de nerfs a considerablement diminué; mon humeur triste cependant ne me quitte pas; il a été surtout très-nourri pendant les dernieres mois, dans les quels des travaux très desagréables m'ont empêcher de toute recherche scientifique, que j'ai pu maintenant recommencer. J'ai bâti un assez grand fourneau à flammes, dans lequel je peux fondre deux quintaux de cuivre à la fois; j'ai fait le pont avec des trous, de manière que je peux regler l'oxidation et la desoxidation à volonté, je l'ai mis dans mon laboratoire, où il n'occupe que fort peu de place . - Mr. Magnus a fini son travail sur les pyrophores; il a trouvé que tous les corps, qui ont une affinité assez grande pour l'oxigène . s'enflamment exposés à l'air, p.e. la poudre de fer . on obtient les corps dans un tel état en reduirant les oxides des metaux, qui ne se fondent qu'à une haute .

      1824 - Lithographie von A. Borum nach D. Quaglio bei J. Lacroix, um 1824, koloriert. Ca. 42 x 49 cm. Papier etwas gebräunt, vor allem im Randbereich. Oberer Rand etwas knittrig. Winzige Beschädigung in der untersten Titelzeile. Nicht bei Winkler, Frühzeit der deutschen Lithographie. Sehr dekorative und detailreiche Ansicht von Trarbach nach einer Vorlage Quaglio aus dem Jahre 1823. Beherrscht wird der Ort durch die evangelische Pfarrkirche (ehem. St. Nikolaus), deren gotische Maßwerkfenster und das Portal bis in die Einzelheiten genau dargestellt sind. Daneben die ehemalige Lateinschule mit dem Ausblick auf die Grevenburg. Die Häuser, teilweise aus Fachwerk, säumen die Straße, auf der Fußgänger und eine kleine Ziegenherde dargestellt sind. Links ein dreigeschossiges Fachwerkhaus mit einem herausragenden, schmiedeeisernen Davidstern. In der Bildmitte ein großes Haus mit Fachwerk, mehreren Erkern und einer Marienmalerei an der Fassade. Rechts im Vordergrund ist ein kleiner Bach (Kautenbach?) dargestellt, über den zwei Stege führen. Im Hintergrund erhebt sich ein Felsen, auf dem sich die Ruine der Gräfenburg befindet. Unterhalb der Darstellung links der Vermerk "Gemalt v. Dominicus Quaglio.", in der Mitte "Gedr. v. Jos. Lacroix." und rechts "Auf Stein gez. v. Andreas Borum." Frühe Lithographie dieser Szene nach Quaglio, noch ohne die später hinzugefügte Reiterfigur im Vordergrund. Vermutlich handelt es sich bei dem vorliegenden Blatt um die erste Lithographie nach der Zeichnung von Quaglio. Winkler, Frühzeit der deutschen Lithographie, kennt nur die Ausgabe bei Velten in Carlsruhe (640,68). Joseph Lacroix, lithographischer Zeichner und Drucker, arbeitete 1822-24 in München (Winkler 456). Dieser Druck bei Lacroix ist Winkler unbekannt geblieben und in der Literatur bisher nicht beschrieben. Papier etwas gebräunt, vor allem im Randbereich. Oberer Rand etwas knittrig. Winzige Beschädigung in der untersten Titelzeile.

        The History of English Poetry from the Close of the Eleventh to the Commencement of the Eighteenth Century

      Printed for Thomas Tegg, London 1824 - Four octavo volumes in the publisher's blue-grey paper-covered boards with cloth spines and paper spine lables. Complete with the engraved frontis of Thomas Warton. Staining along spine edge indicates some type of repair to the spine, but no cloth added, not rebacked, recased or otherwise muddled by restoration. Paper worn from board edges and spine cloth chipped at extremities, but internal contents are generally attractive. Warton's work on English Poetry, originally published 1774 - 1781, was quite valuable to the academic community, but Price's editorial notations in the second edition are quite phenomenal. He discusses the importance of Beowulf at length and highlights a few of the alliterative poems contained in M.S. Cott. Nero A.x. This is the first publication of any work from this manuscript, which includes: "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight," "Pearl," "Cleanness," and "Patience." All works are attributed to the same author, although still anonymous, it is generally agreed that his late fourteenth century verse is some of the most important from the era.

        LETTERS WRITTEN FROM COLOMBIA, DURING A JOURNEY FROM CARACAS TO BOGOTA, AND THENCE TO SANTA MARTHA, IN 1823.

      London: G. Cowie, . 1824 - xvi,208pp. plus one folding map. Three-quarter calf, rebacked, leather label stamped in gilt. Map in very fine condition. Minor occasional stains in text. Very good. Published anonymously but attributed by the British Museum to John Hankshaw, while THE ECONOMIC LITERATURE OF LATIN AMERICA, Palau and OCLC assign authorship to Francis Hall. This record of a journey was published, according to the anonymous author, due to the want "so universally felt in Great Britain of information as to the actual condition of the Republic of Colombia. The more that rich and beautiful country becomes known, the greater will be the interest excited towards it among all Europeans. So extensive a field for the exercise of European industry and intelligence has not for ages presented itself." A travel journal composed in the form of letters, the author describes the landscape, the inhabitants, the climate and soil, natural resources, commodities, government, and the possibilities for commerce. The highly detailed map of Greater Colombia is "taken from Humboldt and various other recent authorities." ALBERICH 1336. NAYLOR 85. SABIN 14598. PALAU 112082.

Cooper, an Englishman who emigrated to the U.S. along with Joseph Priestly, partly to escape prosecution at home (he supported the French Revolution and crossed Edmund Burke), was successfully prosecuted under the Sedition Act for statements against John Adams, but found the favor of Thomas Jefferson, who appointed him the first professor of natural science and law at the University of Virginia, and was later appointed President of what was to become the University of South Carolina.

        4 eigenh. Briefe mit U.

      Dresden, 1824. - Zusammen 8 SS. auf 8 (= 4 Doppel-)Blatt. Ein Br. mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief). Mit einer Beilage (s. u.). An Pius Alexander Wolff (1782-1828), Hofschauspieler am Königl. Theater in Berlin, der sich im Jahr zuvor einige Wochen in Dresden aufgehalten hatte. Wie schon zur selben Zeit Ludwig Tieck, so hatte damals auch Lüttichau, der neuernannte Generaldirektor des Königlichen Hoftheaters in Dresden, mit Wolff Kontakt aufgenommen und ihm die "Leitung des Artistischen" der Dresdner Bühne, später dann auch die der Regie, angeboten. "Ew. Wohlgebohren erlauben mir, schriftlich mit Ihnen in Verbindung zu treten, ohnerachtet ich noch nicht die Ehre habe von Ihnen persönlich gekannt zu seyn. S. Maj. der König haben mir die durch den Abgang des Hl. von Könneritz erledigte Generalidirection des hiesigen Hoftheaters und der Musikalischen Kapelle übertragen, und da ich den Wunsch habe, das hiesige Theater zur möglichsten Vollkommenheit zu bringen, solches mir aber nur dann erreichbar scheint, wenn wir darauf rechnen können Sie und Ihre Gemahlin [d. i. die Schauspielerin Amalie Wolff-Malcomi] in unserer Mitte zu besitzen, so gebe ich mir hiedurch die Ehre Ew. Wohlgebohren ergebenst zu ersuchen, im Fall es Ihren Plänen nicht entgegen, und Sie mit der hiesigen Bühne in Verbindung treten wollten, um hier die Leitung des Artistischen zu führen, mir die Bedingungen baldgefälligst bekannt zu machen, unter welchen Sie Sich dazu entschließen würden [.]" (a. d. Br. v. 4. X.). - Die Daten der einzelnen Briefe: I) 4. X. - II) 25. X. - III) 17. XI. - IV) 13. XII. Alle Briefe links oben mit späterer Numerierung. - Beiliegend ein eh. Briefkonzept mit U. von P. A. Wolff (dat. 8. XI. 1824, 1½ SS. auf Doppelblatt, folio) in Beantwortung von Lüttichaus Schreiben v. 4. X.; grundsätzlich stimme er einem Wechsel nach Dresden zwar zu, stelle aber doch fünf Vertragsbedingungen. In Berlin sollte man jedoch an den Wolffs festhalten, ein Entlassungsgesuch wurde vom König abgeschlagen und Wolff wurde bedeutet, er würde unter keiner Bedingung entlassen werden und sich durch erneute Gesuche nur der Ungnade des Königs aussetzen.
