        Idee zu einem Kupfer vor dem Volksschulliederbuch". Eigenhändiges Manuskript mit U. ("Hoppenstedt").

      Wohl Hannover, vor 1824. - 2 SS. 4to. Wohl für den Verleger seines erstmals 1793 in Hannover erschienenen Buches "Lieder für Volksschulen" bestimmt, das bis 1823 vier weitere Auflagen erlebte. Interessante und umfangreiche Beschreibung einer ihm vorschwebenden Kupfertafel vor dem Liederbuch, aus der Hoppenstedts Persönlichkeit und sein pädagogisches Weltbild erkennbar werden. "Ein Schullehrer, in einfacher Tracht [.] sitzt unter einem Baum, mit einer Flöte, einigen Noten u. dergl. in der Hand. Ein Haufen Knaben, groß u. klein, sitzt zu seiner Linken, - ein gleicher Haufe Mädchen zu s. Rechten; u. diese alle sieht man frö[h]lich und in ungekünstelten Stellungen singen. Andre Kinder stehn schön gruppi[e]rt aufhorchend umher, - doch so, daß jedes Geschlecht für sich bleibt. Alle arbeiten, auch die Singenden. Theils stricken, theils nähen sie, - u. auch die Knaben stricken [.]". - Nach zahlreichen weiteren Details merkt Hoppenstedt an: "Ich darf wohl nicht hinzufügen, daß ich sehr natürlich mich gern bescheide, Manches auf einer einzigen Platte Unausführbare gesagt zu haben. Indeß wollte ich hiedurch auch nur meinen Wunsch zu erkennen geben [.]". - Die 5 Auflagen, die bis 1823 erschienen, enthielten, so weit wir feststellen konnten, keine solche Kupfertafel. Über Hoppenstedts sonstige Lehr- und Kinderbücher vgl. Goedeke VII 325, 25. - Sehr selten.

[2]ff, xxxii, 334 pp; [2]ff, 343pp. Contemporary binding by Vogel (signed in gilt at the foot of the spine) of green goatskin, the covers with a wide border composed of a gilt thick and thin fillet, a blind flower-head roll and four gilt fillets connecting to large bulbous corner ornaments, and blind lozenge-shaped centre with gilt roundels. The spine divided into five panels with gilt tooled bands, lettered in the second and numbered in the fourth panels, the others tooled in gilt and blind, the corners of the edges of the boards hatched in gilt, the turn-ins tooled with a gilt roll, marbled endleaves, gilt edges.

He first appears in the Almanachs in 1826, at rue Dauphine 24, and then from 1832 until 1849 at Four-St. Germain 78. Ramsden points out that his work is so closely akin to that of Thouvenin that there seems little doubt that they must, at some stage, have worked together. He goes on to say that "Vogel seems to have been capable of doing all Thouvenin's work, except the really first-line productions. Vogel was definitely at the top of the second class". The French second class being on a par with most premier leagues. Pencil purchase note at the rear "Xmas 1933 $300".

        Réflexions sur la Puissance Motrice du Feu et sur les Machines propres a développer cette Puissance

      One folding engraved plate. 2 p.l., 118 pp. 8vo, cont. red morocco-backed marbled boards (unimportant small & faint dampstain at head of several leaves), spine gilt. Paris: Bachelier, 1824. First edition of one of the great rarities in the history of science. This landmark book anticipated both the first and second laws of thermodynamics; it is the author's only publication. "Using the fallible analogy of a water-wheel and the language of caloric theory the book was essentially an attempt to calculate the mechanical equivalent of heat; Carnot devised the type of apparatus afterwards used by J.P. Joule to produce exact figures in 1841. His work led directly to the enunciation of the theory of the conservation of energy by Helmholtz in 1847. In fact, in a reprint of the Réflexions in 1878, Carnot's brother included the contents of some notebooks which showed that Carnot himself had formulated this theory, which is now the first law of thermodynamics. The second law of thermodynamics is also implicit in Carnot's treatise. Work is done only when heat passes from a hotter to a colder body. It follows that when an equilibrium of temperature is reached work ceases."-Printing & the Mind of Man 285. It is known that only six hundred copies of this book were printed. Fine copy. ❧ Dibner, Heralds of Science, 155. D.S.B., III, pp. 79-84. En Français dans le Texte 239. .

        A Picturesque Tour Along the River Ganges and Jumna, in India consisting of twenty-four highly finished and coloured views, a map and vignettes, from original drawings made on the spot, with illustrations historical and descriptive

      L. Harrison for Rudolph Ackermann, London 1824 - Expertly bound to style in red straight-grained morocco, the covers panelled in gilt using fillets and a neo-classical roll, the spine in six compartments with double raised bands, the bands highlighted with a dot roll, the space between with a decorative roll, lettered in the second compartment, the others with elaborate repeat decoration in gilt, gilt edges A lovely, large copy of one of the great books on the Indian sub-continent: "a just portrait of the enchanting features of India, eternally glowing in the brilliant glory of the resplendent Asiatic sun"(preface). This important book ranks alongside the works of William Hodges, the Daniells and Henry Salt as one of the cornerstone pictorial works on India. Printed in up to three colours and then delicately hand-coloured, the plates capture the bewitching play of light that so exemplifies Indian scenery. The subjects depicted were all recorded by Forrest during his service as an officer in the army. He was posted in Bengal from 1802 with the 3rd Regiment of Foot, and in the course of his duties made numerous journeys by boat, palanquin or on horseback. The work begins with an overview of Indian history, and his account of his principal journey starts on page 12, describing a tour made by Forrest starting in December 1807. He set out with six companions, 200 servants and followers and a guard of 40 native troops, following the routes of the rivers up from Calcutta to Delhi. Like the various tributaries encountered en route, Forrest made numerous detours to places of interest. All of these are recorded, both in the text and in the plates, with a sensitivity which clearly suggests Forrest's affinity for the country. With a fine sense of the dramatic, he saves his visit to the Taj Mahal for the concluding chapter: "The object which now calls our attention is last in order, but of the highest beauty and interest of any structure yet raised and perfected by man in any region of the earth . The main part of this splendid edifice has fortunately been respected by all the invaders of Hindoostan, its great beauty being probably its protection. It is as pure and perfect as the day it was finished; and with common care, in the equal climate in which it is situated, it may last for centuries" (pp.190-191). Following his tour, Forrest served as aide-de-camp to his father-in-law, General William St. Leger, then commander-in-chief of the Upper Provinces of India, from about 1808 until 1811. He subsequently served in the Peninsula War, in the expedition against New Orleans in 1814-1815, then in Ireland, and finally as aide-de-camp to the Earl of Dalhousie, governor general of Canada, from 1820 to 1823. Returning to Britain, he died in Bath in March 1827. A contemporary review of the work summarizes its appeal: "The Tour along the River Ganges and Jumna, now completed, is one of those splendid works with which Mr. Ackermann, with great enterprise, liberality, and good taste, favours the public. There are few publishers who would run the hazard of producing them, at an expence that must be enormous . The work contains twenty-four views, for the fidelity of which the author appeals with confidence to those who have passed through the same scenes. The drawings were all attentively copied from nature, and in many instances coloured on the spot, and always while the magic effects of the scenes represented were still impressed on the mental vision on the author and artist . The views are of very varied description, including Hindoo pagodas, villages, ancient cities, mountains, forts, palaces, tombs, etc. with the adjacent scenery. There is a great deal of freedom and spirit in the drawings which are exquisitely and delicately coloured, exhibiting a scenery of such peculiar richness and beauty, as can only be appreciated, in its fullest extent, by those who have seen the spots they so well represent . No description of ours will do justice to these beautiful engravings" (The Literary Chronicle, 8 J [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Edinburgh, From the Castle

      Published by R. Ackermann's Repository of Arts, London 1824 - A scenic view of Scotland's capital, from a set of four prints of Edinburgh. The ancient city of Edinburgh on the east coast of Scotland has a long and eventful history that dates back to the Bronze Age. Perched on top of an elevated volcanic rock, its impressive castle is the city's focal point and was built by King Malcolm III Canmore in the eleventh century. By the late sixteenth century, Edinburgh was a thriving city and was established as the capital Scotland and the chief site of the royal court. Although no longer the royal seat when James VI of Scotland ascended to the English throne in 1603, effectively uniting the crowns of Scotland and England, it retained its own Parliament for many years. The city continued to prosper during the Enlightenment, although its Parliament ceased to exist when the Act of Union was instituted in 1707. During this period, Edinburgh underwent a significant architectural expansion, and the beautiful Georgian buildings, which characterize the city, were erected. Born in Devon, John Gendall moved to London in 1811 at the behest of Sir John Soane, who introduced him to the prolific print-publisher and bookseller Rudolph Ackermann. He worked for Ackermann for several years, conducting various experiments in the art of lithography and contributing numerous illustrations to the firm's various publications and topographical series. A number of his sketches and watercolour drawings were engraved and published as aquatints by the draughtsman Thomas Sutherland. Gendall continued to paint landscapes (mostly of Devonshire) after leaving Ackermann's employment, and he regularly exhibited his works at the Royal Academy until 1863. Cf. Benezit, Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs et Graveurs , Vol. 13, p. 375; cf. Dictionary of National Biography. Hand-coloured aquatint. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling, minor foxing, and mild matburn in the margins. A skillfully repaired 3/4" tear in the top left corner. Trimmed to within platemark on all sides.

        Account of an Insurrection of the Negro Slaves in the Colony of Demerara, Which Broke Out on the 18th of August, 1823

      Georgetown: Guiana Chronicle Office 1824 - 8vo - Inserted folding map and 12 copper engravings, 3/4 calf, floral patterned cloth, black morocco label stamped in gilt; several nicked plates; Barbados bookseller ticket. First edition of the "first history of the Demerara rebellion." Sabin 8809. An exceedingly scarce book. The NUC lists four copies, The British Museum Library another. Two of the known copies lack complete maps and plates as described (pages 115-120) by fifteen-year Demerara resident and artist Joshua Bryant. Captain J. Crofton Peddie's copy, with "C. Peddie, 21 Fusileers" engraved on the lower spine label. Peddie, a member of the court charged with the arraignement of insurrectionist John Smith, is listed on page 91. Peddie's ownership signature appears several times; the final blanks are covered in his hand, with approximately 500 words detailing his arrival in Demerara (1821) and subsequent involvement with the proceedings ----- On October 13, 1823, John Smith, a thirty-one-year-old Methodist missionary with unassailable anti-slavery convictions (assigned to administer "religion" to three hundred ninety-six slaves on Le Resouvenir plantation), was formally charged with inciting one of the largest slave rebellions in New World history. The uprising of some ten thousand Demerara slaves was precipitated, in great part, by rumored dispatches of pending parliamentary measures aimed at ameliorating slave conditions (the promotion of religious instruction and assurances of family immunity from the slave trade) as a prerequisite step toward eventual manumission. By August 1823, slaves on some fifty plantation, surmising through the frenzied reactions of planters that "their rights" were being withheld, overtook the colony. Innumerable cutlasses, knives, sticks, and guns were brandished with self-control (two or three belligerent whites were executed), and emancipation was demanded. The Gandhi-like protest produced a massacre. J. Crofton Peddie, one of the fifteen officers to weigh the case against Smith, was ordered to secure Le Resouvenir (the site of Smith's chapel, said Joshua Bryant, where the "revolt had been fixed"), and days later, at Bachelor's Adventure plantation, the captain participated in the largest, bloodiest battle of the three-day insurrection (where colonial forces, numbering around four hundred fifty men, opened fire upon some three thousand slaves, killing about two hundred). Ordered to join the militia, Smith refused and was arrested on grounds of promoting "discontent and dissatisfaction in the minds of the Negro Slaves" and for conspiring with his chief deacon and principal insurgent "against the King, his Crown and Dignity." The proceedings lasted twenty-seven days. On November 24th, he was sentenced to death, pending a reprieve from the King-in-Council. Smith languished in a Georgetown jail. Word of clemency arrived on March 30th, almost eight weeks after the London Missionary Society zealot had expired from "pulmonary consumption." Parliament became a powder-keg, nearly ignited by public outrage over Smith's "martyrdom." Never before was the appeal to end slavery more decisively pressed. The intended reforms that had shaken Demerara into rebellion were instituted with speed. Emancipation by apprenticeship was achieved, as the government begrudgingly promised, a decade later, after which Frederick Douglass told Englishmen: "[T]he [Demerara] slaveholder hated, persecuted, burned the chapels, and rendered insecure the life of the missionary, [but] Religion there assailed slavery: it cried aloud and spared not, but lifted up its voice like a trumpet against it."

He became a cowboy, self-made industrialist, award-winning yachtsman, British peer and Conservative Party politician, founder of the Military Massage Service and the Cambridgeshire Battalion of The Suffolk Regiment, and treasurer of the League of Nations Union. Paget briefly worked for the Midland Railway, Derbyshire before emigrating to the United States in 1881. He established a cattle ranch at Le Mars, Iowa, where he became acquainted with Theodore Roosevelt. Later he relocated to St. Paul, Minnesota, where he was a real estate agent. He joined Henry Melville Whitney in establishing the Dominion Coal Company Ltd. in 1893 and the Dominion Iron and Steel Company Ltd. in 1901 at Sydney, Nova Scotia. On 12 November 1895, he married Whitney's niece, the American heiress Pauline Payne Whitney. The marriage was solemnized at St. Thomas's Church in New York City, and among those attending was President Grover Cleveland. He went on to become a member of Parliament and was raised to the peerage as Baron Queenborough in the County of Kent. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        A Touch at the Fine Arts Illustrated by Twelve Plates, With Descriptions, by Henry Alken

      Thomas McLean, Repository of Wit and Humour, London 1824 - A humorous take on the argot of art criticism. 8vo. With 12 hand-colored aquatint plates, including frontis, which is described as Plate V. The apercus of Alken, as he applies phrases others must have used to describe, praise and pan his own efforts, are singular in not being susceptible to easy description. However, he succeeds ably in capturing the pretentious tone of the critic in his elaboration of phrases such as "an imposing effect", "a sudden effect", "a warm effect". For most, the magic and fun is in the illustrations, in which he attempts to give literal application of these terms. The binding is a later (1911) full red straight-grained morocco by Zaehnsdorf. With gilt-fillet borders and gilt lettering and details on the spine. Also one page publisher's advertisement at rear, but without half-title. The binding has light rubbing along the front joint and there are rubbed spots along the edges and by the corners, but the binding remains very handsome indeed. Excepting a few occasional, light fox marks, the plates and text are clean. There is an armorial bookplate on marbled FEP. Tooley 58. Plus [Attributes: First Edition]

      - Paris, A. Belin, 1824-1833. 24 parts. Large 4to (365 x 280mm). With 193 engraved plates. Publishers printed wrappers, uncut. A fine complete copy of this scarce flora of Brasil.

August François César Prouvençal de Saint-Hilaire (1779-1835) was a French explorer, botanist and entomologist; self-taught naturalist of independent means. "He intensively surveyed the flora and fauna of Brazil from Jequitinhonha to Rio de la Plata for six years. In August 1822 Saint- Hilaire returned to Paris with 24,000 plants, 2,000 birds, 16,000 insects, 135 quadrupeds, and many reptiles, fishes, and minerals that he intended to classify" (DSB). Saint-Hilaire left his Brazilian herbarium to the Paris Natural History Museum, and it is now part of the general herbarium. For the parts 5-22 Jacques Cambessèdes (1799-1863), and Andrien Henri Laurent de Jussieu (1797-1853) were co-authors. The fine plates are from drawings by Eulalia Delile and P.J.F.Turpin.

        The National Sports of Great Britain . With descriptions in English and French . Chasse et Amusemens Nationaux de la Grande Bretagne

      printed for Thomas M'lean by Howlett & Brimmer, London 1824 - Contemporary black straight-grained morocco, the covers elaborately panelled in gilt, the spine in six compartments with raised bands, lettered in the second compartment, the others with elaborate repeat pattern built up from small tools, gilt turn ins, cream-glazed endpapers, red morocco inner hinges, gilt edges A fine copy of an early impression of "Alken's most important work . It must always form the cornerstone of any Alken collection" (Tooley). The plates and text between them offer a thorough survey of the sports practised in Great Britain in the first quarter of the nineteenth century. The subjects covered including riding, fox, stag and otter hunting, beagling, racing, falconry, various types of dogs and horses, shooting grouse, partridge, pheasant, snipe, wild-fowl, bittern, pigeon, fishing for pike, and salmon, fishing from a punt, prize-fighting, cock-fighting, badger, bear, and bull-baiting and perhaps most extraordinary of all: "owling." It is interesting to note that although both the artist and the author felt that it was necessary to record badger, bear and bull baiting they did not hold back from condemning all three sports as barbaric. This copy is a later issue. The additional title is dated 1821 (rather than 1820, as in the first issue), a letterpress title in French has been added (only the English title is present in the first and second issues) and the explanatory text leaves are signed consecutively from 1 to 50 (Podeschi records an intermediate state/issue where only some of the text leaves are numbered). The watermarks suggest a date of circa 1824. The plates, very carefully hand-coloured, are all aquatints by I. Clark, and retain all of the liveliness that is such a feature of this work. The artist Henry Thomas Alken was born into what became a sporting artistic dynasty. He studied under the miniature painter J.T. Barber and exhibited his first picture (a miniature portrait) at the Royal Academy when he was sixteen. From about 1816 onwards he "produced paintings, drawings and engravings of every type of field and other sporting activity. He is best remembered for his hunting prints, many of which he engraved himself until the late 1830s . To many, sporting art is 'Alken', and to describe his work or ability is quite unnecessary" (Charles Lane British Racing Prints pp.75-76). Litchfield 14; cf. Mellon/Podeschi 111; cf. Schwerdt I, p.19 & IV, p.4; Tooley 42. (18 3/4 x 12 1/4 inches). Parallel titles and text in English and French, text leaves with numerical signatures from 1-50. Hand-coloured engraved additional title, 50 hand-coloured aquatint plates by I. Clark after Henry Alken. (Final two plates and text leaves with minor paper loss to blank margins).

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

      Buenos Aires. . 1824 - 80pp. autograph manuscript with one manuscript note and eight printed items tipped to six pages. 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

        John Braham

      London, Great Britain 1824 - John Braham (c. 1774 ¿ 17 February 1856) was a tenor opera singer born in London, England. His long career led him to become one of Europe's leading opera stars. He also wrote a number of songs, of minor importance, although The Death of Nelson is still remembered. His success, and that of his offspring in marrying into the British aristocracy, are also notable examples of Jewish social mobility in the early 19th century. Braham¿s precise origins are uncertain. The favored (but specious) present account in contemporary sources of reference is that he was possibly a son of John Abraham or Abrahams, who was possibly an operative at the Drury Lane Theatre who died in 1779 and his wife, who may have been Esther, who may have been a sister of the hazzan at the Great Synagogue of London, Myer Lyon. Braham has also been held to be related to various other London musicians with the surname of Abrahams. There is however no documentary evidence for any of these supposed connections. It is however fairly certain that Braham was left an orphan at an early age. There are stories of his selling pencils in the street as an urchin (a common trade for the Jewish poor at the time). Braham was a meshorrer (descant singer) at the Great Synagogue, and here his abilities were noted by Lyon, who led a double life as an operatic tenor at the theatre at Covent Garden (under the name of Michaele Leoni). Braham¿s first stage appearance was in fact at Leoni's Covent Garden 1787 benefit, when he sang Thomas Arne's The soldier tir¿d of war¿s alarms. He next appeared in June at the Royalty Theatre, again with Leoni. After 1788 however we do not hear of a public performance until Braham appeared at Bath under the aegis of his teacher, the male soprano Venanzio Rauzzini in 1794. This empty period will have coincided with the departure of Leoni and also with Braham's voice breaking. It also therefore suggests a birthdate of around 1774 or 1775, rather than the 1777 date given by nearly all modern sources. During this period he was supported by the Goldsmid family. The Goldsmids were influential financiers who maintained their friendship with Braham later in his career and also used him as entertainment at their soirées. Their neighbour and occasional guest there was Horatio Nelson, whose heroic fate was later to prompt Braham's greatest song-writing success, The Death of Nelson. (It first appeared in the opera The Americans, (Lyceum Theatre, 1811). Lady Hamilton, who was in a private box for the performance, was reported to have been so overcome that she suffered a fit of hysterics and had to leave the theatre). Braham was trained by Rauzzini from 1794 to 1796. It is very likely in fact that the Goldsmids paid for Braham to be articled to Rauzzini, who was a leader in Bath¿s musical society. After his first performance at Bath in 1794, the Bath Chronicle eulogised him as ¿a sweet singer of Israel¿ and explained that he derived [¿] from the synagogue, though by the simple expedient of dropping the A at the beginning of his name, he got rid of the patriarchal appellation and Christianized himself. It is interesting that this positive review at the beginning of his career highlights Braham¿s Jewishness. This together with the 'inside information' which had clearly been provided to the newspaper suggests that (in England anyway) his origins were not regarded as a bar to his career. At this point, despite the implications of the article, in fact Braham had made no moves to conversion, although he may well have attended church as social custom of the time required. Rauzzini's pupils included the celebrated Irish tenor Michael Kelly, creator of Don Basilio in Mozart's Marriage of Figaro. Braham certainly benefited from Rauzzini's influence and promotion, and acquired from him the basic precepts of the old Italian school and a virtuoso technique which was thought by some to be surpassed only by the soprano Angelica Catalani. Braham created Oberon for vov Weber.

        Recherches expérimentales sur l'absorption et l'exhalation. Mémoire couronné par l'Institut Royal de France.

      A Paris, chez J. B. Baillière, 1824. - in-8. 70pp. Cartonnage moderne à la Bradel. Edition Originale fort rare de ce "mémoire remarquable" (Larousse) du physiologiste sicilien Michel Foderà (1793-1848), dans lequel il décrit les expériences qu'il avait entreprises pour étudier l'absorption des tissus cellulaires, en particulier d'après les travaux de son maître Magendie. L'ouvrage contient notamment des observations sur la respiration et l'absorption des gaz par les tissus vivants. Dans son étude sur l'histoire des théories françaises de l'absorption et de l'osmose au 19e siècle, Pickstone mentionne cet ouvrage comme la première formulation claire du problème de l'absorption des tissus; il souligne également son importance dans la perspective de l'étude des relations entre les théories biologiques du positivisme d'Auguste Comte et les progrès de la science expérimentale. 1 planche coloriée hors-texte représentant des vaisseaux lymphatiques.

        Au Champ-de-Mars, dimanche prochain 13 juin 1824,. Ascension et départ pour un voyage aérien, d'une flotille aérostatique, composée de cinq ballons, et montée par MM. Dupuis Delcourt et J.-M. Richard.

      [Paris], C. Ballard, s.d., (1824), - placard in-4 (30 x 24 cm). en feuille.Anecdotiques rousseurs. Très rare prospectus invitant à assister à un départ de ballons prévu originellement le 6 juin (et renouvelé ou reporté au 13, d'après la modification manuscrite du titre). La Revue encyclopédique donna un compte-rendu de cette expérience, qui fut d'ailleurs un échec : le grand aérostat et les quatre petits ballons accessoires ne purent décoller faute d'un remplissage adéquat. S'il était au départ chanteur à l'Opéra-comique de Paris, Jules-François Dupuis-Delcourt (1802-1864) se passionna pour l'aérostation, et se mit à effectuer dès l'âge de 22 ans des ascensions avec un certain John Richards (certainement le "Richard" mentionné sur notre placard). Il est à noter que la première ascencion qui lui soit habituellement attribuée est celle du 7 novembre 1824 qui aboutit sur les terres du duc d'Aumont, à Montjean (Wissous). Mais notre placard montre qu'elle fut précédée par d'autres tentatives, dont celles à ballon captif à partir du Champ-de-Mars étaient apparemment à finalité commerciale. Notre objet fait donc partie des très rares traces laissées de ses essais. Absent de Tissandier comme de Brockett, qui signalent toutes les brochures de Dupuis-Delcourt. Aucun exemplaire au CCFr.

      London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, Brown, and Green,, 1824. With a Journey through Turkey, Greece, the Ionian Isles, Sicily, Spain, &c. Octavo (229 x 138 mm). Modern cream paper-backed grey boards, original printed label to spine, edges untrimmed. Frontispiece and 12 lithographic plates. With occasional contemporary marginalia. Spine slightly darkened, small chip to label affecting last letter of "land", boards a touch soiled with some minor scuff marks, short split to bottom of front joint, light spotting and tanning throughout, mild offsetting from plates. A very good copy. Second edition of the first travel book by Wilson (1772–1849). Originally published in 1823, the second edition was extensively enlarged to include descriptions of the journey to Greece and Turkey as well as 6 additional plates. A popular book, Travels in Egypt and the Holy Land inspired Wilson to continue writing. He would publish several travel books, including ones on the Mediterranean (1824), Scandinavia and northern Europe (1826), Russia (2 volumes, 1828), and France and Italy (1835). "His Christian beliefs were strong and had in part prompted his first journey to the Holy Land. An upright man, a writer and a distributor of tracts, he was rather intolerant, and his strict sabbatarianism provoked Thomas Hood's discursive and pungent 'Ode to Rae Wilson, Esquire', published in 1837" (ODNB).
