        Suit of Armour for Youth, A.

      London: Published by the Proprietor, 1824. Eleven Hand-Colored Flaps Revealing Moral Maxims[GRIMALDI, Stacy]. A Suit of Armour for Youth. London: Published by the Proprietor, 1824. First edition. Hand-colored issue. Twelvemo (7 1/8 x 4 1/8 inches; 182 x 105 mm.). xii, 92 pp. Hand-colored engraved frontispiece and eleven hand-colored engraved plates, each with a hand-colored engraved overslip.Bound ca. 1900 by R. Wallis (stamp-signed on verso of front free end-paper). Full polished tan calf, covers double-ruled in gilt, spine with five raised bands, decoratively tooled in gilt in compartments, two tan morocco labels lettered in gilt, gilt board edges and turn-ins, marbled end-papers, all edges gilt. Top of spine expertly and almost invisibly repaired, otherwise a near fine example. It would appear that this little book was published both plain or more expensive, as here, hand-colored.William Grimaldi (1751-1830). "One day, seeking some ideas for a house party which his family was to hold, he found inspiration in a group of articles on his daughter's dressing-table. He sketched a number of these on the top flaps of sheets of paper folded in half, and underneath drew an appropriate virtue. For instance, a sketch of a container of Rouge superieur, ne se vend à Paris was opened to reveal a scene captioned 'Modesty' underneath. Grimaldi had no further thought for the nine items than that they might provide interest at the party, but his son Stacy (1790-1863), a London solicitor and genealogist, was so impressed by the idea that he insisted they should be published. The elder Grimaldi was encouraged to write a verse to accompany each drawing, and Stacy then saw to the publication - at his father's expense. The Toilet, as the book was called, appeared in 1821 and quickly sold out, necessitating at least one reprint. Imitations soon appeared, and from Ireland came Indispensable Requisites for Dandies of both Sexes (circa 1823), and an anonymous American author from Boston offered My Lady's Casket in 1835. The Grimaldis produced a considerably more elaborate sequel for boys in 1824 entitled A Suit of Armour for Youth, which… again used the same flap principle. In this book eleven pieces of armour were, represented - a crest, helmet, breastplate, backplate, sword, shield, tilting-lance, housings, gauntlets, spurs and a banner - and beneath each an appropriate moral maxim." (Peter Haining. Movable Books. An Illustrated History. p. 16)."The Grimaldis produced a sequel for boys in 1824 called Suit of Armour for Youth. In this pieces of body armour were faithfully reproduced with moral maxims to match. Thus "The Strongest Breastplate", when raised disclosed George III addressing the House of Lords, the picture being labelled "Virtue". " (Percy Muir. English Children's Books 1600 to 1900, p. 215).Gumuchian, 1995; Haining, p.16; Muir, p. 215; Osborne, p. 418.

        Six months' residence and travels in Mexico; containing remarks on the present state of New Spain, Its natural productions, state of society, manufactures, trade, agriculture, and antiquities, &c.

      London Murray 1824 - FIRST EDITION.8vo., [2], v-xii, 532pp., with 2 folding engraved maps, folding table, 16 aquatint plates, 4 coloured by hand. Contemporary pale half calf, spine gilt in 6 compartments, green lettering piece, brown marbled boards and endpapers, a fine fresh copy. William Bullock was a showman, collector and naturalist. In 1809 he moved his growing collection of 'natural curiousities' from Liverpool to London, originally to Piccadilly and then to the 'Egyptian Hall', which housed around 32,000 objects of natural history, ethnography and archaeology. Bullock knew that novelty was the key to maintaining his audience and so in 1819 he auctioned his permanent collection and hosted temporary exhibitions instead. Two such exhibitions- titled Ancient Mexico and Modern Mexico- held in 1824, included artifacts and specimens brought back from his 1822 trip to Mexico. Sabin records that Bullock was "the first English traveller in Mexico since Father Gage in 1640". He "spent six months collecting 'scientific information' that amounted to a vast array of flora, fauna, pre-Columbian manuscripts, sculptures and other artifacts" (Stephen, 157). In exhibiting these finds in England he became " the first to present Mexican arts to the public in the postindependence period", praising in particular the "productive industry" of rural folk art (Stephen, 157). Includes 'The Plan of the City of Mexico', based on the celebrated map of Mexico City by Diego García Conde orginally engraved in 1807. Extremely difficult to obtain because of its rarity and format, Conde's map, as found in this book, is an alternativeway of acquiring an early version of the greatest nineteenth-century map of Mexico City.

        The house where Ludwig van Beethoven lived in summer 1824.

      View on the street with the house where Ludwig van Beethoven lived in summer 1824 on the right. Title added on bottom in pencil: ´LUDW. V. BEETHOVEN / WOHNTE IN DIESEM HAUSE / SOMMER 1824´, bottom right the address: '19. KAHLEMBERGERSTR. 24' in Vienna. In that year the composer wrote the famous 'Ninth simphony' that was performed 7th May 1824 at the Theater am Kärntnertor in Vienna. Signed on the bottom right: 'HE EIBUSCHITZ' and further signed in pencil at bottom, close to the plate mark. Hedwig Brecher-Eibuschitz was a female artist, who studied at the Art School for Women and Girls. She was Jewish and due to the historical developments of the twentieth century she, like many other Jewish female artists, had been neglected, also during her lifetime. In fact the art world was run essentially by men. For instance ""women artists were not allowed to take part in Vienna's lavishly praised ""Ver Sacrum"", the blossoming of creativity and art that emerged there around 1900. The main Viennese movement of modern art, the Secession, led by Gustav Klimt (1862-1918), was joined by contemporary European artists, among them many Jews, but it excluded women-of any faith."" Women artists were also interdicted education: ""The only public art school in nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Austria open to women was the School of Arts and Crafts (Kunstgewerbeschule, founded in 1867). As the name itself indicates, the school was originally established to teach applied arts. Although women had free access to the school, the choice of art classes was limited de facto. They could attend the first-year preparatory classes, but participation in subsequent courses in architecture, sculpture and figurative painting was restricted, if not forbidden. [...] Jewish women artists - together with their gentile counterparts - established their own system of education and representation. The most important art school was the Viennese Kunstschule für Frauen und Mädchen, established in 1897, which held a special place among all the art schools founded for women and girls since it marked the beginning of the first intensive art education for women. In comparison to other art schools, the level of education was quite high, there was no restriction in admission and the tuition fee was kept relatively low. [...] To make their voices heard, women established their own organizations, which provided them with a forum for exhibitions and sales as well with support and encouragement. The best-known of these associations was the Association of Austria's Women Painters (Vereinigung bildender Künstlerinnen Österreichs), founded in 1910. [...]"" (For the full article see: Birgit Ben-Eli: 'Austria: Jewish Women Artists' https://jwa.org/encyclopedia/article/austria-jewish-women-artists) Drypoint on paper with margins; possibly first state, title added on bottom in pencil; plate mark: 238 x 193 mm, total: 300 x 234 mm; tiny spot on top margin, otherwise in outstanding condition.

        Observations on some points of seamanship; with practical hints on naval oeconomy, &c. &c. . The whole profits are for the benefit of the Royal Naval Charitable Society.

      Cheltenham: printed by J.J. Hadley Minerva Press Queen's Buildings 1824 - 8vo., xii + 290pp., contemporary sea-green half morocco over marbled boards, spine gilt and lettered. A fine copy. First edition. A manual for naval men by an experienced Royal Navy officer (Lieutenant 1790; Troubridge's First Lieutenant in the Culloden at the battle of St. Vincent, 1797; with the Leonidas assisted at the capture of Cephalonia, 1809, and the reduction of St. Maura, 1810-11; eventually reaching the rank of Rear-Admiral in 1841). Although a substantial portion of Griffiths's book comprises notes on 'points of seamanship', there is much here of great interest on both the management and human side of the early 19th century Royal Navy. Thus, on pp.43-49 the author considers the practice of admitting women on board ('an evil of considerable magnitude'), and he considers at some length man-management issues, including (pp.81-118) the conduct of the chaplain, the officers, midshipmen and the ship's company as a whole. He reminds the reader (imagined no doubt as a naval officer himself) that most of the ship's company were there involuntarily and not by choice, that nonetheless they had 'feelings' and emotional ties to families. 'Seamen are now a days a thinking set of people', Griffiths claims, 'and a large portion of them possess no inconsiderable share of common sense'. Punishments should be firm but fair, courts martial requiring a higher standard of proof than had become customary. At the end of the volume is a long list of subscribers (pp. 275-290), the vast majority of whom were evidently Royal Navy officers including no fewer than 57 Admirals.

La première a paru en 1803. "It was in mechanics that Poinsot most effectively displayed his gift for geometry.

        Suit of Armour for Youth, A.

      London: Published by the Proprietor, 1824. Eleven Hand-Colored Flaps Revealing Moral Maxims [GRIMALDI, Stacy]. A Suit of Armour for Youth. London: Published by the Proprietor, 1824. First edition. Hand-colored issue. Twelvemo (7 1/8 x 4 1/8 inches; 182 x 105 mm.). xii, 92 pp. Hand-colored engraved frontispiece and eleven hand-colored engraved plates, each with a hand-colored engraved overslip. Bound ca. 1900 by R. Wallis (stamp-signed on verso of front free end-paper). Full polished tan calf, covers double-ruled in gilt, spine with five raised bands, decoratively tooled in gilt in compartments, two tan morocco labels lettered in gilt, gilt board edges and turn-ins, marbled end-papers, all edges gilt. Top of spine expertly and almost invisibly repaired, otherwise a near fine example. It would appear that this little book was published both plain or more expensive, as here, hand-colored. William Grimaldi (1751-1830). "One day, seeking some ideas for a house party which his family was to hold, he found inspiration in a group of articles on his daughter's dressing-table. He sketched a number of these on the top flaps of sheets of paper folded in half, and underneath drew an appropriate virtue. For instance, a sketch of a container of Rouge superieur, ne se vend à Paris was opened to reveal a scene captioned 'Modesty' underneath. Grimaldi had no further thought for the nine items than that they might provide interest at the party, but his son Stacy (1790-1863), a London solicitor and genealogist, was so impressed by the idea that he insisted they should be published. The elder Grimaldi was encouraged to write a verse to accompany each drawing, and Stacy then saw to the publication - at his father's expense. The Toilet, as the book was called, appeared in 1821 and quickly sold out, necessitating at least one reprint. Imitations soon appeared, and from Ireland came Indispensable Requisites for Dandies of both Sexes (circa 1823), and an anonymous American author from Boston offered My Lady's Casket in 1835. The Grimaldis produced a considerably more elaborate sequel for boys in 1824 entitled A Suit of Armour for Youth, which... again used the same flap principle. In this book eleven pieces of armour were, represented - a crest, helmet, breastplate, backplate, sword, shield, tilting-lance, housings, gauntlets, spurs and a banner - and beneath each an appropriate moral maxim." (Peter Haining. Movable Books. An Illustrated History. p. 16). "The Grimaldis produced a sequel for boys in 1824 called Suit of Armour for Youth. In this pieces of body armour were faithfully reproduced with moral maxims to match. Thus "The Strongest Breastplate", when raised disclosed George III addressing the House of Lords, the picture being labelled "Virtue". " (Percy Muir. English Children's Books 1600 to 1900, p. 215). Gumuchian, 1995; Haining, p.16; Muir, p. 215; Osborne, p. 418.

        Posthumous Poems.

      1824 - First edition. 8vo., without the errata-leaf (which is claimed to be an early issue point), internally fine, later red morocco gilt extra, morocco doublures, by Zaehnsdorf. London, Printed for John and Henry L. Hunt. Scarce: Shelley's father opposed its publication and withdrew Mary Shelley's allowance until she withdrew the book from sale. The volume includes ?Julian and Maddalo?, ?The Witch of Atlas?, ?Fragments from an Unfinished Drama?, ?Prince Athanase?, ?Ode to Naples?, and fifty-seven miscellaneous poems and fragments. Most importantly, the volume contains Shelley's last and unfinished poem, ?The Triumph of Life?, which (according to Neville Rogers) ?was to have marked a new and important path in the wanderings of Shelley's careful thought?.Mary Shelley's preface is a touching memorial; ?No man was ever more devoted than he, to the endeavour of making those around him happy; no man ever possessed friends more unfeignedly attached to him. The ungrateful world did not feel his loss, and the gap it made seemed to close as quickly over his memory as the murderous sea above his living frame. Hereafter men will lament that his transcendent powers of intellect were extinguished before they had bestowed on them their choicest treasures. To his friends his loss is irremediable: the wise, the brave, the gentle, is gone for ever ! He is to them as a bright vision, whose radiant track, left behind in his memory, is worth all the realities that society can afford. before the critics contradict me, let them appeal to any who had ever known him: to see him was to love him?

        Essai sur les cloaques ou égouts de la ville de Paris, envisagés sous le rapport de l'hygiène publique et de la topographie médicale de cette ville.

      Paris, imprimerie de Dondey-Dupré, 1824. 8:o. XVI,240 s. Häftad och oskuren i tryckt gråpappomslag. Ryggen nött. Omslaget med vikta hörn, och det bakre med några revor. Enstaka lagerfläckar i marginalerna. Reva i övre marginalen på s. 171-72. Med P. O. Liljevalchs namnteckning daterad Paris 1843 på främre omslaget. Bra ex. Verket omtrycktes 1836 i del I av den efter författarens död utgivna samlingsvolymen "Hygiène publique". Alexandre Parent du Châtelet (1790-1836) var läkare och verksam i Paris. Han är mest känd för sitt stora verk om prostitutionen i Paris, vilket utkom postumt 1836. I förordet till "Essai sur les cloaques", som beskriver Paris avloppssystem och dess funktion, skriver Parent du Châtelet att han besökt alla platser han beskriver i texten: "j'ai surmonté sans hésiter la répugnance et les dangers inséparables de pareilles recherches [...]. J'ai fait tout ce que doit faire un homme jaloux de découvrir la vérité, et de jeter quelque lumière sur un sujet obscur". Peter Olof Liljevalch (1807-77) var läkare och från 1844 livmedicus hos kungafamiljen. Under åren 1842-45 företog han en vetenskaplig resa till Paris bekostad av allmänna medel och det var vid detta tillfälle som föreliggande skrift förvärvades. Liljevalch var en stor bok- och handskriftssamlare. Hans bibliotek såldes på auktion 1877. När de europeiska storstäderna växte i snabb takt under 1800-talet uppstod ett akut behov av fungerande avloppssystem och i Paris byggdes så småningom ca 200 mil kloakledningar under staden. I Sverige påbörjades byggandet av ett avloppssystem i Göteborg först 1866 och i Stockholm 1868.

        Observations on injuries of the spine and of the thigh bone: in two lectures, delivered in the School of Great Windmill Street. The first in vindication of the author�s opinions against the remarks of Sir Astley Cooper, Bart. The second on the late Mr. John Bell�s title to certain doctrines now advanced by the same gentleman.

      Printed for Thomas Tegg, 1824., London: - 318 x 247 mm. 4to. xv, [1], 101, [1], [ads, 2] pp. 5 figs., 9 engraved plates (with plate 9 bound in at front as frontis., 2 folding); light offsetting associated with the plates, marginal water-stains. Quarter red buckram, boards, gilt spine; covers soiled. Blind stamp of The Presbyterian Hospital, Ludlow Library, Philadelphia on title. Ownership signature of Charles A. Carton. Very good. UNOPENED COPY. RARE. FIRST EDITION. The text of these two lectures is, as usual, in Bell's typical lucid style, and the nine plates, drawn by the author, are remarkably effective. The first lecture is given over to a criticism of some views by another famous surgeon of Bell's time, Sir Astley Paston Cooper (see No. 1224 ff.). The second lecture is in support of his brother, John Bell, recently deceased, certain of whose findings had been claimed by Cooper as his own (Heirs of Hippocrates 1306).

        Autograph Letter, Signed ("T. Moore") to John Wilson Croker

      1824. 1 p. pen and ink on paper, docketed Nov. 11, 1824. 8vo. Old folds. 1 p. pen and ink on paper, docketed Nov. 11, 1824. 8vo. Moore on First Meeting Byron. Moore writes to John Wilson Croker (1780-1857), author, MP and Secretary of the Admiralty. Croker, a frequent contributor to John Murrary's Quarterly Review, is thought responsible for the savage review of Keat's Endymion which Shelley and Byron would blame for the poet's early death. Here Moore refers to John Murray's Notes on Captain Medwin's Conversations of Lord Byron, which corrects errors in Medwin's work. Reading in part, "I am glad to see that Murray has so triumphantly set down the Captain [Medwin] - In a less important way this conversationalist has equally misrepresented me - the whole account of my first acquaintance with Lord Byron being incorrect. Indeed his entire book is a series of lies 'at random strung' upon a slender thread of truth." Moore was sensitive about his aborted duel with Francis Jeffrey following the latter's harsh review of Epistles, Odes, and other Poems (1806) - the duelists were hauled off by the police and newspapers circulated a rumor that the guns were loaded with paper pellets. Byron's reference to the duel in his English Bards and Scotch Reviewers (1809) incensed Moore, and he in turn challenged Byron to a duel. Byron, who was traveling in the Levant with Hobhouse at the time, was unaware of Moore's anger. Of course the two later became close friends, and Moore's Letters and Journals of Lord Byron (1830) has remained "the mainstay of biographers ever since" (Marchand, Byron: A Portrait, p. 473).

      Exceedingly rare imprint, containing Perez de Urdininea´s praise to the inhabitants of Peru and Bolivia to come in aid of the armies led by Simon Bolivar and General Santa Cruz, in both Spanish and Quechua. Bilingual revolutionary imprints are by no means a common occurrence; they aimed to appeal to a vast audience (the native populations like the Quechua, Aymara, and Guarani mostly), not often approached by colonial authorities. These translations prepared into native languages were produced mostly by the Argentinean Junta, who had to gain the favor of the other regions of the Viceroyalty of the Rio de la Plata. Perez de Urdininea (1784 - 1865) was a remarkable figure of the Bolivian independence, and the first Bolivian-born -and third overall- President of Bolivia. Transcription: PAISANOS. Ya se concluyo: ya encontro termino vuestro llanto: ya el gran Dios os ha fixado una Mirada compasiva: basten tantos padecimientos incansables: ya vais a estar libres para siempre de los enemigos. El general Bolibar con el General Santa Cruz: esos fundadores de la humanidad, y padres de los pobres, rompiendo las hondas de los mares han venido en vuestra ayuda: yo tambienen convinacion con ellos, he arribado desde las provincias de abajo a exterminar a esos enemigos sanguinarios: Me conozeis: saveis que no se mentir. Ahora importa que os arméis generalmente: que deboreis (a los) malvados: ya no durmáis mas en la indiferencia: si hoy no sacudis vuestros enemigos ¡ay! sereis esclavos y padeceréis para siempre: hoy me vais a dar idea de vuestro amor a la patria y a vuestros hijos: De este ultimo golpe ya no escapan vuestros enemigos: Aguardadme poco mas: nos veremos: quiero morir con vosotros en prueba de la compasión en que siempre os ha tenido mi corazón, derramando sentidas lagrimas por vosotros. Esto os promete vuestro Paysano.
