        Pompeiana. The Topography, Edifices and Ornaments of Pompeii

      London - Rodwell and Martin, 1824. London - Rodwell and Martin, 1824 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A history of the antiquities of Pompeii, detailing the topography, edifices and ornamentscompiled by Sir William Gell and John P. Gandy andillustrated with numerousengraved plates and plans, some of which fold-out. In two volumes complete. A new edition. Sir William Gell (1777 - 1836) was an English classical archaeologist and illustrator. Some of his best known archaeological work includes Pompeiana and The Topography of Troy. His numerous drawings of classical ruins and localities, executed with great detail and exactness, are preserved in the British Museum. Gell was a thorough dilettante, fond of society and possessed of little real scholarship. Nonetheless his topographical works became recognised text-books at a time when Greece and even Italy were but superficially known to English travellers. He was a fellow of the Royal Society and the Society of Antiquaries of London, and a member of the Institute of France and the Royal Academy in Berlin. His best-known work is Pompeiana; the Topography, Edifices and, Ornaments of Pompeii, published between 1817 and 1832, in the first part of which he was assisted by John Peter Gandy (1787 - 1850), a British architect. It was followed in 1834 by the Topography of Rome and its Vicinity. He also wroteTopography of Troy and its Vicinity (1804); Geography and Antiquities of Ithaca (1807); Itinerary of Greece, with a Commentary on Pausanias and Strabo (1810); and Itinerary of the Morea (1816). Although these works have been superseded by later publications, they continue to provide valuable information for the study of classical topography. He is, together with his friends Edward Dodwell and Keppel Richard Craven, by some modern scholars seen as the founder of the study of the historical topography of the hinterland of Rome. His works and notebooks proved very valuable for the topographical studies done by Thomas Ashby at the beginning of the 20th century. Condition: In cloth bindings. Externally, sound but with wear to extremities, slight rubbing and the odd mark and stain to boards, with slight splitting and loss to cloth to backstrip and spine labels. Internally, volume one is firmly bound, volume two, generally firmly bound although strained in one place. Bright but with slight scattered foxing and slight marginal tidemarks to rear. Overall: GOOD ONLY.

        L'Aminta and Il Pastor Fido

      Milano - Dalla Tipografia di Commercio, 1824. Milano - Dalla Tipografia di Commercio, 1824 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Poems from two of Italy's great Renaissance poets. No poet was more influential on music history in the late Renaissance and Baroque eras than Guarini. While Guarini's work may be seen as lacking the deep feeling and sentiment of Torquato Tasso, his rival at the Estensi court, it was precisely this quality which commended it to musical setting at a time when excessive emotionalism had become unfashionable. Tasso's Aminta is a pastoral drama of very simple plot, but of exquisite lyrical charm. It appeared at the moment when music, under Palestrina's impulse, was becoming the main art of Italy. The honeyed melodies and sensuous melancholy of Aminta exactly suited and interpreted the spirit of its age. Its influence, in opera and cantata, was felt through two successive centuries. Binders label of R Carswell and Son, Belfast to front pastedown. Condition: In a half calf binding. Externally sound, with just slight wear to the leather. Internally, firmly bound. Bright with scattered spotting throughout, and just a few small tidemarks. Overall: VERY GOOD..

John Milton (1608 - 1674) was an English poet, polemicist, a scholarly man of letters, and a civil servant for the Commonwealth of England under Oliver Cromwell.

(Reliure de l'époque.) Première édition. François Sulpice Beudant était le conservateur du musée de minéralogie de Louis XVIII. Illustrée par 1 tableau et 10 planches dépliantes hors-texte. 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. Externally, smart with some shelfwear to the extremities and small marks to the boards. Spines are slightly faded. Internally, firmly bound.

After his graduation from Yale in 1791, he served as a legislator and ran the state bank, but devoted much of his time to his botanical pursuits. This work was originally published in thirteen parts, the first appearing in 1816, which accounts for the eccentric pagination of the first volume.

        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. LITERATURE: Jos van Heel, "The Odyssey of the manuscript collection of Gerard and Johan Meerman" in: Books on the Move: Tracking copies through collections and the book trade / edited by Robin Myers, Michael Harris, and Giles Mandelbrote (2007). * PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 5 vols. in 2, COMPLETE: 6 ff., 378 pp.; half-title, 210 pp.; 4 ff., 217, 221 pp. (without blank leaf), 2 ff., 182 pp. (MSS), 1 f. - PRIX DES LIVRES. 8, 186 pp. Recent half calf antique over marbled boards, red morocco spine labels, sprinkled edges.
