James Boswell, 1740 1795, was a lawyer, diarist, and author born in Edinburgh, Scotland; he is best known for his biography of Samuel Johnson.

Edmond Malone, 1741 1812, was an Irish Shakespearean scholar and editor of the works of William Shakespeare. He was also instrumental in helping with Boswells The Life of Samuel Johnson.

Le faux-titre porte : "Essai d'un cours élémentaire et général des sciences physiques. Minéralogie." "Mineralogical investigations, particulary experiments with carbonates and other salts, revealed to Beudant a principle of the combination of mineral substance that he expressed in Beudant's law. Essentially, he found that some compounds dissolved in the same solution would precipitate together, forming a crystal whose properties they determined in common. The interfacial angles of this new crystal would have a value intermediate between the angles of the original compounds, proportional to the quantity of each." DSB 2, 106.

        The Lives of the Most Eminent Poets

      London - Thomas Tegg, G. Offor, G. and J. Robinson et al, 1824. London - Thomas Tegg, G. Offor, G. and J. Robinson et al, 1824 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A highly attractive set of Johnson's famous and influential work, comprising the biographies of 52 poets. Six of the Lives have been singled out as the most important: John Milton, John Dryden, Alexander Pope, Joseph Addison, Jonathan Swift, and Thomas Gray. The Lives, which are critical as well as biographical studies, appeared as prefaces to selections of each poet's work, and they were quite a bit larger than originally anticipated. As Johnson justified in the advertisement for the work, my purpose was only to have allotted to every Poet an Advertisement, like those which we find in the French Miscellanies, containing a few dates and a general character. However, he did not limit himself to a dry series of dates and biography, but created a series of Lives with, according to his 1783 edition Preface, the honest intention of giving pleasure. With the bookplate of one T. U. Cooper to the front pastedown of each volumeComplete in three volumes. Condition: In full calf bindings with intricate tooling to boards.

        Bibliotheca Meermanniana, sive catalogus librorum impressorum et codicum manuscriptorum. AUCTION CATALOGUE (date of sale: 8 June 1824 and following). BOUND WITH: Prix des livres de la Bibliotheque Meermanienne, venue a La Haye.

      The Hague: S. & J. Luchtmans, Van Cleef Bros., and B. Scheurleer 1824 - COMPLETE SET, with the 186-page list of PRICES REALIZED, of the sale catalogue of the astounding Meerman collection, 'one of the most famous private libraries in Europe' (Munby), listing ca. 10,000 titles and 1,100 Manuscripts. Gerard Meerman (b. Aachen, 1715, d. Leyden, 1771) was the author of 'Origines Typographicae' (1765), one of the first detailed studies on the history of printing. Here Meerman claimed as the inventor of movable type not Johannes Gutenberg but Laurens Jansz. Koster, of Haarlem. On this matter Meerman was incorrect, although his efforts did much to spread bibliographical scholarship throughout Europe. His 'De Chartae Vulgaris seu lineae origine' (1767) was an extremely early essay on the history of watermarks. Meerman had acquired all the MSS belonging to the College de Clermont, in Paris: a major triumph. The Bibliotheca Meermanniana was inherited -- and greatly augmented -- by his son Johan (1753-1815), an attorney and one of the principal exponents of the foundation of the Royal Library, The Hague. The younger Meerman attempted to donate the entire collection it to that city. After that bequest was refused (sic!) it was sold by auction, for which the present catalogue was the vehicle of sale, realizing a total of 131,000 Guilders; Sir Thomas Phillipps attended the sale of the MSS in person (though the London bookseller Thomas Rodd bid for him) acquiring more than 650 of them (see Munby, Phillipps Studies, III). - To a few copies a portrait of J. Meerman was added, not present here as usual. REFERENCES: De Ricci, p. 120; G. Brunet; Blogie, IV, col. 57-58 (likewise without the portrait); LGB2.

      London: Samuel Leigh, 1824. London: Samuel Leigh, 1824. 16 hand-coloured aquatint views after Clark, each numbered and mounted on a thin trip of card (200 x 70mm) with grey wash border top and bottom, contained in the original cardboard 'tray and lid' box with two divisions, hand-coloured aquatinted title label to outside lid, the aquatint views are slightly spotted, the book is rather rubbed with the label on the upper lid faded and stained, lower lip of box missing. The 16 hand-coloured cards, each with a landscape view, when placed together form a single panoramic view which is capable of rearrangement to form a endless variety of differing scenes. The subject typically shows a lake-shore with trees, figures, and animals in the foreground, island-castles and ships in the middle distance, and a background of mountains. It is claimed that Clark's set of sixteen cards are capable of 20,922,789,880,000 permutations!

        Trarbach mit der Ruine Gräfenburg an der Mosel.

      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.

        Touch at the Fine Arts, A

      , 1824. 1824. Artists Jargon Satirically DefinedRare In Original BoardsALKEN, Henry. A Touch at the Fine Arts. Illustrated by Twelve Plates, with Descriptions by Henry Alken. London: Published by Thomas M’Lean, Repository of Wit and Humour, 1824. First edition. Quarto (10 3/4 x 7 1/2 inches; 273 x 190 mm.). [28] pp. Twelve hand-colored soft-ground etchings. Each plate with a leaf of descriptive letterpress. With the half-title and the leaf of advertisements present.Original quarter crimson roan over drab boards with printed pink title laid on. Some expected corner-wear and rubbing and soiling to boards. Early repairs to spine head and foot, otherwise and internally clean and excellent copy.“A Touch at the Fine Arts…is, according to the preface, ‘an attempt to elucidate, by graphic delineations, a variety of terms generally and perhaps exclusively made use of by artists, amateurs, connoisseurs, virtuosos, and the like. Long, indeed, has a generous public been, doubtless, puzzled in the endeavour to discover some ray of meaning in those glowing, brilliant and forcible phrases, which the critical catalogues, Catalogues Raisonnées, etc., of the day are woefully burthened with.’ It is a cheap kind of humour at the best. To take two of the most deserving subjects—‘A Moving Effect; the Execution rapid,’ is represented by a runaway coach, with expressions of the utmost horror in the faces and attitudes of the occupants; ‘A Striking Effect, the handling by no means good or pleasant to the eye,’ is illustrated by a fracas between two returning roisterers and some night-watchmen. In these and in plate 2, a prison-scene depicting ‘An unpleasant effect, but the Keeping is Good,’ Alken shows genuine power as a draughtsman, and infuses his work with a character lacking elsewhere. The last plate, indeed, might almost be a coloured lithograph from the hand of Daumier. All twelve plates, it should be said, are soft-ground etchings, with colour applied by hand” (Martin Hardie).The Plates:1. —An Imposing Effect 2. Unpleasant in Effect—but the keeping is Good3. A Moving Effect—the Execution Rapid4. A Striking Effect—The handling by no means good, or pleasnat to the eye5. All Effect—The Subject far from good, but Rich6. A Forcible Effect7. A Sudden Effect8. A surprising Effect—but no Execution9. A Very Warm Effect10. A powerful Effect—but the subject rather hurried11. A Spirited Effect—but no order kept in the grouping of the Figures12. A very Brilliant EffectMartin Hardie, pp. 183-184 and 319. Siltzer, p. 71. Tooley 58. Not in Abbey.

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.
