        Précis du Système Hiéroglyphique des Anciens Égyptiens ou Recherches sur les élémens premiers de cette écriture sacrée, sur leurs diverses combinaisons, et sur les rapports de ce système avec les autres méthodes graphiques égyptiennes

      Treuttel et Würtz, Paris 1824 - Quarto (9 1/4 x 6"). XVI, 410pp. Modern half black morocco over marbled paper covered boards. Raised bands. Ribbon marker. Marbled endpapers. Engraved title vignette. First Edition of Champollion's celebrated compendium of the hieroglyphic system, a foundational text of modern Egyptology. In this remarkable work the author describes, step by step, with numerous examples and details, the method he followed to discover and document the three aspects of hieroglyphics: the phonogram images, the figurative representations, and the symbolic representations. These three types of characters, used together, have been the source of so many confusions in the previous attempts to achieve their decoding. Once his description is completed, Champollion compares his method to the one which was described by Clement of Alexandria in his "Stromata."This work is complete with its 16 full-page plates, including many folded.Binding slightly rubbed along joints. Ex-library bookplate on inside of front cover. Half-title age-toned. Sporadic foxing / age-toning throughout. Text in French. Binding in overall good+, interior in good to very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Stultifera navis. | The ship of fooles. Including: MANCINI, Domenico ( Dominicus MANCINUS). The mirrour of good maners. PIUS II, Pope (Eneas SILVIO). Certayne egloges ... whereof the first three conteyne the miseryes of courtiers and courtes of all princes in general, ...(Colophon: London, John Cawood), 1570. Small folio (27 x 19.5 cm). With a large woodcut on the title-page showing four ships filled with fools (15.5 x 10 cm), and 116 woodcuts in the text (mostly ca. 11 x 8 cm) including 11(?) repeats. Gold-tooled brown calf (ca. 1855?), each board with a large built-up centrepiece and a built-up frame, gold-tooled turn-ins. Rebacked preserving the original backstrip.

      ESTC S107135; Pforzheimer 41; for the woodcuts: Hodnett 1824-1881, 1883-1899, 1901-1931. The famous second (1570) Latin and English edition of Sebastian Brant's great Ship of fools, containing Jakob Locher's Latin verse translation, Alexander Barclay's English verse translation and Barclay's printed annotations in the fore-edge margins. Brant first published his Ship of fools in German as Narrenschiff in 1494. The present edition is illustrated with the woodcuts made for Pynson's very rare 1509 edition, and they are better printed here than in 1509 (Pforzheimer notes that all but "two or three" are "very well preserved"). The woodcuts are based on those of the first (German) edition of 1494 where some are ascribed to the Master of Haintz-Narr and others formerly to Albrecht Dürer (but now to the Master of the Johann Bergman printing office).Sebastian Brandt (1457-1521) is famous largely for this verse satire, where more than a hundred fools set sail without a pilot in search of a fool's paradise. Each episode harshly satirizes one particular vice or folly, sparing neither clergy nor scholars, and each fool meets his death in an appropriate manner. Brant satirizes men and women in all walks of life and engaged in various activities, so the woodcuts add not only immediacy, beauty and humour, but also a view of historical clothing, implements and customs. Although intended as a dire warning of the perils of foolish behaviour, immorality and short-sighted actions, the book proved enormously popular largely because of its black humour, and it saw many translations, adaptations and spin-offs. It probably also influenced Shakespeare and many other literary works. With bookplates of the London investment banker and Mexican mining entrepreneur Joseph Tasker (1797-1861) of Middleton Hall; the bibliophile Charles William Dyson Perrins (1864-1958); and the bibliophile and bookseller William Foyle (1885-1963). With an occasional running head, folio number or marginal note slightly shaved, one leaf with browned patches, the title-page slightly dirty and a few marginal chips or tears repaired, but still in good condition. The binding has been rebacked, probably with new headbands, but the binding is also good. The very influential second edition of the best English translation of a universal classic.

        Altra veduta del Tempio della Sibilla in Tivoli

      Roma 1824 - LE ANTICHITA DEI CONTORNI DI ROMA OSSIA LE PIU FAMOSE CITTA DEL LAZIO L’opera viene pubblicata tra il 1824 e il 1826, divisa in quattro parti comprendenti le Antichità di Tivoli, di Cora, di Albano e Castel Gandolfo, di Preneste e del Tuscolo. La serie viene preceduta per la prima volta da un’introduzione storico-critica con la Spiegazione alle tavole, ed inserisce alcune tavole, eseguite a tratto, di piante e restauri con ricostruzioni di monumenti personalmente rilevati e misurati. Nel Discorso preliminare l’autore indica che lo scopo è quello di rivolgersi ad un più vasto pubblico di amatori e non quello di offrire un semplice strumento conoscitivo dei monumenti romani agli architetti. Nelle Antichità dei contorni di Roma, Rossini riunisce in un solo volume le analoghe vedute che Piranesi aveva pubblicato in tempi diversi, con l’intento di raccogliere in un’unica opera le antichità presenti nel Lazio meridionale. Nella raccolta si può notare come l’autore ricerchi un’aderenza formale allo stile piranesiano, che si riscontra nell’uso dei chiaroscuri fortemente accentuati, nei tagli delle inquadrature e nella scelta dei soggetti; anche nei frontespizi posti all’inizio di ogni sezione, i frammenti archeologici e gli elementi architettonici vengono disordinatamente ordinati all’interno della composizione. La maggior parte dei soggetti scelti, in particolare le vedute di Tivoli e dei Castelli Romani, non si distaccano dalla tradizione vedutistica dei secoli precedenti, punto di riferimento può essere stato l’incisore G. F. Gmelin che proprio agli inizi del XIX secolo, aveva pubblicato una raccolta di vedute dei dintorni di Roma. ANTIQUITIES OUT OF ROME, THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CITIES OF LAZIO The work was published between 1824 and 1826, divided into four parts including Antichità di Tivoli, di Cora, di Albano e Castel Gandolfo, di Preneste e del Tuscolo. The series was preceded for the first time by an historic-critical introduction with the Explanation of the plates; he also included in the collection some line block plates of plans and monument restorations of great relevance. His preliminary Discorso states that his aim is to reach the highest number of collectors, not just to realize a study book. In his Antichità dei contorni di Roma, Rossini put together in one volume some analogous views Piranesi had already published along the years, with the aim to collect in one work all the antique monuments in the region of Southern Lazio. In his collection the artist tried to comply with the style of Piranesi, which can be found in the use of chiaroscuro, the choice of the framings and the subjects; even the front pages of every section, the archaeological and architectural elements are confusedly ordered inside the work. The majority of his subjects, especially the views of Tivoli and the Roman Castles, are still quite close to tradition of the veduta of the previous century. G. F. Gmelin, who had published a collection at the very beginning of the XIX century, can be considered his point of reference for that matter. Luigi Rossini incisore. Vedute di roma 1817 - 1850, catalogo della mostra a cura di L. Gavazzi, M. E. Tottoni, Roma Palazzo Braschi, 7 aprile - 15 luglio 1982. Roma Dimensioni 650 460mm

        The case of Lecesne and Escoffery

      London, 1824-8 - Original set of Court Papers for the legal case brought in London comprising Dispatches sent by Lord Manchester, Governor of Jamaica from 1824 to 1827, 728pp + Letters received from the Colonial Department 1824-7, 104pp + "Statement of the Estate & Effects of George Mackay of Pembroke in Trelawny" together with papers relating to this, 11pp. + 1828 Affidavits and papers to support the claim that Louis Lecesne had not in fact been born in Jamaica + sundry other papers relating to the case. All in neat and clear manuscript in fine condition housed in quarter calf box. Also 1825 House of Commons report on the affair and a finely bound book of photocopies of Legal works connected with the case. These documents, dealing with Jamaica’s colonial jurisprudence, will be of great interest to lawyers and historians, particularly to legal historians, interested in the unfair, discriminatory and inhuman colonial legal and judicial system. People conversant with the present day principles of civil liberties and human rights will be shocked to read these legal documents highlighting the iniquitous and heartless colonial jurisprudence and callous judicial system. These documents show the colonial cruel and injudicious slave-owning mentality persisting in the 1820s and after. Simply stated, the facts of this long and sordid episode in Jamaica, where justice was finally achieved by a tortuous route to the British House of Commons, were that in 1823 the governor of Jamaica, acting hastily upon rumours of revolt by slaves and others against the Jamaican government, deported to Haiti two liquor merchants, who were disenfranchised ‘people of colour’. This was done despite the fact that, during the deportation process, they were freed from detention, for lack of evidence, by the courts accepting their application under a petition of habeaus corpus. The proceedings of this case in Jamaica in the 19th century case highlight the heavy handedness of the colonial authorities against former slaves and other subjugated minorities. It is important to emphasise that in those days the laws of categorising the population of Jamaica, and some other colonies, were rather complicated and cumbersome. For example, people of colour (mostly the result of white fathers and black mothers) unless born free or ‘manumized’ (the act of liberation of a slave from bondage: see Fenwick v. Chapman 9 Pet 472), remained slaves until the fourth degree. Until the mixing of blood had reached that degree, they remained slaves. People in colonies were categorised as whites, free people of colour, free blacks, people of colour in slavery, and blacks in slavery. The restrictions on non-whites were grievously onerous and obnoxious. For example, all non-whites were incapacitated by the Jamaican law-makers from giving evidence against white persons. The two merchants were lucky as a British sea captain took them from Haiti to England. On finding out their plight, some of the Abolitionists took their petition to the House of Commons. The parliamentary debates and the document produced therefor are of great interest. So is the other correspondence connection with this, particularly a letter written on 17th September 1816 by Stephen Lushington to William Courtenay. A related Court of the King’s Bench law report of 1830 of a libel case again John Murray, a bookseller of repute, is also included: R. v. Murray. The two merchants eventually were found to have been born in Jamaica and to be Jamaican citizens. As such they could not have been deported. They triumphantly returned to Jamaica.

        Album with 47 charming drawings in several media by Paul Voituron (1824-1891) of Ghent and his sisters(?) and friends in France, Switzerland, Holland and Flanders.Various places, [1831-]1842-1844. Oblong (12.5×24 cm). With 47 drawings including the full-length colour portrait of what may be the gentleman-artist Paul Voituron, 8 coloured drawings (including 6 of flowers), 11 black and white drawings, 21 drawings with sepia (and in one case also red) washes, and 6 drawings with black and white washes, some highlighted with white chalk. Contemporary green textured half cloth, blind-stamped green textured paper sides, gilt edges.

      - For Paul Voituron: Van Praet & D'Hondt, Paul Voituron (1824-1891) en zijn denktank: levensschets en progressief gedachtegoed van een Gentse liberaal (2012). An album containing 47 mostly small pen and ink wash, pencil, watercolour and pastel drawings, several in colour. Several are signed by Paul Voituron (1824-1891) and his sisters(?) Hortense and Virginia Voituron, and the Mary who signed many drawings without a family name may be a Voituron as well. Paul Voituron was to become known as a progressive thinker in Ghent, but the Ghent University Library also has a large collection of his drawings. Other drawings in the album must have been drawn by family friends. The first drawing in the album is dated 1842 and several are dated 1842-1844, so one dated 1831 may have been mounted in the album long after it was drawn. Most of the drawings contain one or more human subjects, sometimes in portraits, other times as figures in landscapes. There are also several flower drawings. Together they give a charming view of daily life in Europe in the early 1840's. A few album leaves are detached and frayed at the edges, but the drawings themselves are in very good condition. The binding has lost its backstrip and is rubbed, with the sewing somewhat loose. A charming set of drawings by young ladies and gentlemen from Ghent on a Grand Tour of Europe.

        Veduta degl' Avanzi del maestoso ingresso della Villa d'Adriano tre miglia da Tivoli

      Roma 1824 - LE ANTICHITA DEI CONTORNI DI ROMA OSSIA LE PIU FAMOSE CITTA DEL LAZIO L’opera viene pubblicata tra il 1824 e il 1826, divisa in quattro parti comprendenti le Antichità di Tivoli, di Cora, di Albano e Castel Gandolfo, di Preneste e del Tuscolo. La serie viene preceduta per la prima volta da un’introduzione storico-critica con la Spiegazione alle tavole, ed inserisce alcune tavole, eseguite a tratto, di piante e restauri con ricostruzioni di monumenti personalmente rilevati e misurati. Nel Discorso preliminare l’autore indica che lo scopo è quello di rivolgersi ad un più vasto pubblico di amatori e non quello di offrire un semplice strumento conoscitivo dei monumenti romani agli architetti. Nelle Antichità dei contorni di Roma, Rossini riunisce in un solo volume le analoghe vedute che Piranesi aveva pubblicato in tempi diversi, con l’intento di raccogliere in un’unica opera le antichità presenti nel Lazio meridionale. Nella raccolta si può notare come l’autore ricerchi un’aderenza formale allo stile piranesiano, che si riscontra nell’uso dei chiaroscuri fortemente accentuati, nei tagli delle inquadrature e nella scelta dei soggetti; anche nei frontespizi posti all’inizio di ogni sezione, i frammenti archeologici e gli elementi architettonici vengono disordinatamente ordinati all’interno della composizione. La maggior parte dei soggetti scelti, in particolare le vedute di Tivoli e dei Castelli Romani, non si distaccano dalla tradizione vedutistica dei secoli precedenti, punto di riferimento può essere stato l’incisore G. F. Gmelin che proprio agli inizi del XIX secolo, aveva pubblicato una raccolta di vedute dei dintorni di Roma. ANTIQUITIES OUT OF ROME, THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CITIES OF LAZIO The work was published between 1824 and 1826, divided into four parts including Antichità di Tivoli, di Cora, di Albano e Castel Gandolfo, di Preneste e del Tuscolo. The series was preceded for the first time by an historic-critical introduction with the Explanation of the plates; he also included in the collection some line block plates of plans and monument restorations of great relevance. His preliminary Discorso states that his aim is to reach the highest number of collectors, not just to realize a study book. In his Antichità dei contorni di Roma, Rossini put together in one volume some analogous views Piranesi had already published along the years, with the aim to collect in one work all the antique monuments in the region of Southern Lazio. In his collection the artist tried to comply with the style of Piranesi, which can be found in the use of chiaroscuro, the choice of the framings and the subjects; even the front pages of every section, the archaeological and architectural elements are confusedly ordered inside the work. The majority of his subjects, especially the views of Tivoli and the Roman Castles, are still quite close to tradition of the veduta of the previous century. G. F. Gmelin, who had published a collection at the very beginning of the XIX century, can be considered his point of reference for that matter. Luigi Rossini incisore.

        TALES OF A TRAVELLER. By Geoffrey Crayon, Gent. [pseudonym] ... In Two Volumes ...

      London: John Murray, Albemarle-Street,. 1824. nineteenth-century full calf, all panels stamped in gold, all edges marbled, marbled endpapers.. Calf rubbed at edges, some of the gold stamping on spine panels. perished, half titles missing, a very good copy. (#137518). First edition. An important edition of the major repository of Irving's supernatural stories, ten in all, including "The Adventure of the German Student," which Bleiler proclaims "one of the early masterpieces of horror" and "The Devil and Tom Walker," which, as "one of Irving's best weird tales, takes its rightful place among devil stories popular in the nineteenth century" (Benjamin Franklin Fisher IV, Bleiler [ed], Supernatural Fiction Writers: Fantasy and Horror, p. 689). "Irving was America's first major literary celebrity and enjoyed a long, successful career free from the kind of tragedy that tormented contemporaries such as Hawthorne and Poe, though it eventually added a romantic glow to their reputations -- everyone loves a tormented genius. Irving, as a master of both comic and tragic material, has suffered in posterity from the difficulty readers have in reconciling the two. Like so many other writers who have appreciated how humor and horror serve as foils for each other (consider Dickens, Twain, W. W. Jacobs, Barry Pain among others) his dark side tends to be minimized in the pubic eye. This collection shows both sides, and also shows Irving at work misdirecting readers in order to shield himself from the charge so commonly directed at fiction in this period, that it was frivolous nonsense, or worse." - Robert Eldridge. "Irving's supernatural fiction is still fresh -- amusing or horrible as the case may be -- and much worth reading." - E. F. Bleiler, Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, pp. 224-5. This British edition includes five pieces (one of which is "The Adventure of the German Student") which are not in the first U.S. edition, published in Philadelphia by Carey and Lea in 1824 in four paper-covered parts. A revised and extended two-volume U.S. edition, including the five pieces omitted from the first U.S. edition, was published in New York by C. S. Van Winkle in 1825. "TALES OF A TRAVELLER (1824), much neglected and often maligned by critics, contains some of Irving's best art in the supernatural mode." - Fisher, Supernatural, p. 688. Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 2-92. Barron (ed), Horror Literature 1-47 (in reference to "The German Student" as a tale of terror). Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 885. Survey of Modern Fantastic Literature IV, pp. 1557-9. Tymn, Horror Literature, 1-182 (in reference to "The German Student" as a Gothic). Bleiler (1978), p. 107. Not in Reginald (1979; 1992).

        Catalogus librorum Bibliothecae Caesareae univeritatis literarum charcoviensis. Cura Basilii Dzunkowsky

      Charcoviae 1824. Typis academicis. - First edition, very rare: the first printed catalogue of Kharkiv University Library, one of the major universities of the Russian Empire (and the second oldest in Ukraine, after Lviv), founded in 1804. It was edited by Vasil Dzhunkovsky (1767–1826), Rector of the University, 1821–6. The catalogue contains thousands of books—divided into seven sections: theology, law, philosophy, medicine, mathematics, history, and philology—in a variety of languages (Latin, French, German, Greek, Swedish, Polish, Russian). Even if English books are not well represented, English-speaking authors certainly are: Bacon, Beattie, Berkeley, Blackstone, Burke, Cook, Dryden, Ferguson, Halley, Hume, Hutcheson, Johnson (67 volumes [of 75] from The Works of the English Poets, 1790), Locke, Malthus, Milton, Newton, Pope, Priestley, Reid, Shakespeare, Adam Smith, Steuart (Tourneisen editions of The Plays (plus a number of translations), the Wealth of Nations, and the Inquiry being among the few English books in the catalogue), Sterne, Swift, and Arthur Young. Gennadi, Literatura russkoi bibliografii (St Petersburg, 1858, item 552) calls for two tables, but the copy at Kharkiv University (listed in its online catalogue) has only one, as here; the National Library of Russia does not mention a table at all. These are the only other copies I could locate. Not in COPAC or WorldCat. 8vo (218 × 130 mm), pp. [2], iv, [2], 511, [1]; with a large folding table; printed on tinted paper; title a little creased, but a good copy in contemporary half calf, worn, spine rather dry, upper joint cracked, with parts of the leather missing along the board, but cords still firm, paper spine label (chipped) lettered gilt.

        NAMPO-JO^

      , 1824. 1824. Good. [EHON] Nagayama KOIN, artist. Tani SEIKO, printer. NAMPO-JO. N.P., N.D., [Osaka, Bunsei 7 {1824}]. 25.4 x 18 cm. This copy, string-bound, Japanese- style, fukuro-toji, has the original printed title label. Almost certainly a later impression of a book which first appeared under the title SEIKO JO, it is a memorial volume in honor of Shokusanjin [Ota Nampo] who died a bit before this book was created. Seiko, a close friend, assembled a volume of Ota's verse and calligraphy, had Koin create the lovely Shijo style illustrations and cut and printed the book himself. One of the more elusive of the ehon of its time and a lovely one. This copy is missing the first and final sheets, thus the preface and colophon. It is only a noble fragment. The covers are worn and spotted, the impressions and colors good. See Keyes catalog of the Ehon collection at the NYPL, #49. Mitchell 465-6.
