        Analyse du fulminate d'argent. 25 S. In: Annales de Chimie et de Physique. Band 25.

      Paris 1824 - 8°. 448 S. Mit 5 gefalteten Kupfertafeln. Halblederband der Zeit. Erste Ausgabe dieser berühmten Arbeit mit den Ergebnissen der ersten gemeinsamen Experimente. - Liebig wird 1824 Mitarbeiter von Gay-Lussac, der sich schon seit langem für die mit den Fulminaten verwandten Cyanate interessiert. "In der Tat enthält Liebigs Arbeit eine Menge hochinteressanter Angaben, die eine erstaunliche Schärfe der Beobachtung und Auffassung des erst zwanzigjährigen und fast nur autodidaktisch gebildeten Verfassers bezeugen" (Volhard). Aus ihren Versuchen ziehen die beiden Wissenschaftler die Folgerung, dass die verschiedenen Knallsäuren saure Salze sind, die mit Basen Doppelsalze bilden, die alle explosiv sind. Diese Explosivität beruht auf einer Verbindung von Cyan mit Sauerstoff, der Cyansäure. - Die Veröffentlichung der gemeinsamen Ergebnisse ist für Liebigs weiteren Lebensweg von grundlegender Bedeutung, da sie nicht nur dazu führt, dass Liebigs Name schlagartig bekannt wird, sondern auch dass Humboldt den Großherzog Ludwig I. bittet, Liebig wieder nach Deutschland zurück zu holen, der dann am 26. Mai a.o. Professor der Philosophie an der Universität in Gießen wird. - Vereinzelt gering stockfleckig. Einband leicht berieben und bestoßen, sonst gut erhalten. - Paoloni 10; Darmstaedter S. 352. - Der Band enthält daneben noch Arbeiten von H. Davy, Vauquelin, D. Brewster, Poisson, Becquerel, A. von Humboldt, W. H. Wollaston etc. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        De L'influence des Agens Physiques Sur la Vie.

      Paris: Chez Crochard, 1824. Paris:: Chez Crochard, 1824., 1824. Thick 8vo. xvi, 654, [2], [2] pp. Index, 1 plate, 1 fold-out plate. Modern cloth with original paper front and rear covers pasted to cloth; remnants of original spine pasted to cloth spine. Holographic inscription inked to top of original cover page, "M. Laennec de la part de l'auteur". One-page holographic letter, from Edwards to Laennec sewn in. Rubber-stamp on title page "Laboratoire de Physiologie Ecole de Medecine de Nantes". Foxing throughout, title and half-title pages with waterstain markings. Very good. PRESENTATION COPY TO LAENNEC. First edition. Edwards, French physiologist, born in Jamaica, the brother of Henri Milne-Edwards, studied under Francois Magendie, who was also a pioneer anthropologist. He has been called "the father of ethnology in France". He was elected to the Royal Society in 1829. Edwards was a vitalist who studied the effect of physical forces on processes in living organisms, "seeking to demonstrate how physical forces such as heat, light, and electricity modified living processes." The present work was translated into English in 1834, by Thomas Hodgkin. See: Jeffrey P. Baker, The Machine in the Nursery: Incubator Technology and the Origins of Newborn Intensive Care. Johns Hopkins University Press, 1996. (p. 16). "After a short excursion into mineralogy, Edward devoted much time to the study of the influence of environmental factors on the 'animal economy.' His early results were honored by the Prix Montyon of the Academie des Sciences (1820), and in 1824 he published his finding in a book. His main idea as that vital processes depend on external physical and chemical forces but are not entirely controlled by them. Life is different from heat, light, or electricity, forces which, however, contribute to the production of vital phenomena. Edwards systematically examined all principal functions, mostly of vertebrate species; and by varying the external conditions, he determine the nature and degree of their modification. Among the phenomena studied were the minimum and maximum temperatures compatible with life; heat production in young and adult animals; resistance of young animals to cold and to lack of oxygen; the importance of humidity, pressure, and movement of air in the loss of heat by transpiration; the role of light in the development of batrachians; and expiration of carbon dioxide by animals deprived of oxygen. Important was his finding that some warm-blooded animals ... are norm less developed and have a much smaller capacity for heat production than those not born helpless..." – DSB. In 1822, Laennec became Chair of Medicine at the College de France, where Edwards carried out his research under the direction of his mentor, Francois Magendie (1783-1855). This may be the nexus explaining the lengthy presentation to Laennec. The work was quite popular when published. It was translated into English in 1824 by Thomas Hodgkin (1798-1866). "Edwards studied the influence of environmental factors on animal life, concluding that vital processes depend on external physical and chemical forces but are not entirely controlled by them. The work includes an account of Edwards' important experimental work regarding the effect of light on the body." – Garrison & Morton 145.56, 1991, 598. DSB, IV, pp. 285-6 [by Vladislav Kruta].

        By the President of the United States of America, Suffer the Ship Gold Hunter of Fall River, Clark Estes Master

      Folio sheet, 15 x 10 1/2 inches. The "Gold Hunter" was a 281 ton ship built in Wells, Maine in 1824. On this voyage, her fifth, she departed Fall River in June 1839 for New Zealand, and returned September 1840 with 340 barrels of sperm oil, and 1560 whale. This document is an interesting mess. The tonnage is wrong, at 180 rather than 280 tons, and it appears the name of the ship and the captain have been erased and re-written. At the bottom of the document the date, "twenty eighth" has been scratched out and replaced by "fourth." Apparently someone started to make this passport for another vessel, then changed it to "Gold Hunter." Was this the last passport in the Collector's office before the ship sailed? The numeral "2" above the seal indicates this is only the second such document signed from Fall River that year. At any rate, President Van Buren and Secretary of State Forsyth had no second thoughts, as their signatures are strong and clear, with no sign of erasure or alteration. Of course, they signed these papers ahead of time, so the cock-up, whatever its reason, is the fault of Collector P.W. Leland, who has also signed the passport. The scalloped top of the document indicates that this is a so-called "Mediterranean Passport" intended to keep ships from being molested by Barbary pirates after the treaty with Algiers in 1795. Why a whale ship bound for New Zealand would need one is beyond me, but I've seen several of these issued for whalers who were not going anywhere near the Mediterranean.

        The Adventures of Hajji Baba of Ispahan

      London: John Murray, 1824. First Edition. Boards. Near fine. 3 vols. 1st edition, 1st printing with the dedication to Dr. Fundgruben intact. The first peek into Persia, the best ever capturing of what it was in that time, fact or fiction, and still the most popular Oriental novel in English. Original boards, sympathetically rebacked with identical gray paper, original paper labels laid down. Vol. I label 70% chipped, vol. III label with a smaller chip, all 3 grubby, name on pastedowns, but very good, scarcer in boards uncut, than Internet clicks on the "I am under 18" button, and not to be compared to rebound sets, or mistaken for its sequel, The Adventures of Hajji Baba of Ispahan in England (1828), which is easy to find, even in boards. At a pressing point of British colonial power, the Crown established a mission in Persia with an 1809 treaty of alliance. In 1810 they sent James J. Morier as Secretary of Embassy, and from 1814 to 1816 he served as Chargé d'Affaires. The choice was a brilliant one. Sir James observed without appearing to do so, represented Britain while seeming a fair arbiter, advanced their interests under the pretext of cooperation, made his presence digestible by adopting Qajar Persian customs, stayed quieter than a painting on a wall, and came away with an essential grasp of the culture, and an insight into the regime, not visible even to the natives. He returned home, published reports, and accounts of his travel, and then this novel, which he coyly disconnected from by presenting the picaresque narrative as merely his translation of the coming of age autobiography of one Hajji Baba, a wholly fictional, Candide like, character. In the charade, Hajji Baba tells the tale of his rise from poverty to become the Shah of Persia's emissary to Britain, but when he's recalled in disgrace, and possibly execution, he entrusts the diary of his life to Morier as his chosen facilitator for publication. It's an adventure to be sure, drawing splendid character portraits, and descriptions, but it's a satirical one, ridiculing Persian society as violent, the culture as scandalously dishonest and decadent, and the people as rascals, cowards, fools, and puerile villains.

        Their Majesties King Rheo Rhio, Queen Tamehamalu, Madame Poki, of the Sandwich Islands and suite as they appeared at the Theatre Drury Lane, June 4th 1824

      London, 1824. Some browning at edges, expertly backed with Japanese tissue; very good. Hand-coloured Lithograph, 270 x 340mm., title caption. A rare and enchanting separately issued lithograph showing the Hawaiian royal family at the theatre, Royal Drury Lane, on 4 June 1824. The visit to England of the Hawaiian King and his young wife attracted much popular attention but sadly, a month after their visit to the theatre, both contracted measles, and the twenty-two year old Queen, Kamamalu (transcribed as Tamehamulu at the time) died on 8 July, 1824. The King succumbed shortly afterwards.Only weeks before, King George IV had commanded that the Royal Box should be made available for their visit to the theatre, and the publicity handbills trumpeted the occasion. At the reception attended by 'upwards of 200 persons of first rank and fashion' held for them in May, it was recorded that 'His Majesty was dressed after the European fashion, but the Queen's attire was partly European, and partly in native costume. The Treasurer also was dressed in the full costume of his country.' (The Times, 31 May, 1824). On 31 May 'Their sable Majesties', with their suite, occupied the King's Box at the Theatre Royal in Covent Garden'. His Majesty, 'as regards appearance, need hardly give way to any potentate in Europe... Her Majesty the Queen is taller than her Royal spouse: but of good figure, and with a countenance by no means devoid of expression.' (The Times, 1 June, 1824). The following Friday, 4 June, the Royal Party attended the New Theatre Royal Drury Lane, where they watched the opera Rob Roy Macgregor, and Zoroaster, 'A New Grand Egyptian Tale of Enchantment'. By 8 July the Queen was dead, and the King was dying; her coffin lay in state and bore a large brass plaque upon which was engraved in Hawaiian, and in English: TAMEHAMALU Queen of the Sandwich Islands Departed this life in London, on the 8th July 1824 Aged 22 years (The Times, 13 July, 1824). The bodies of the royal pair were carried back to Hawaii on HMS Blonde in 1825.At lower left is the inscription "drawn and engraved from the life by J.W. Gear and at lower right "printed by C. Hullmandel". John William Gear was a portraitist, miniaturist, watercolour painter and lithographer who specialised in theatrical portraits. He regularly exhibited in London from 1821 to 1852 before moving to America. Charles Joseph Hullmandel was born in London in 1789 and ran a lithographic establishment on Great Marlborough Street from about 1819 until his death in 1850. During the first half of the 19th century Hullmandel became one of the most important figures in the development of British lithography. This work illustrates beautifully the sensitive technique he employed that created the effect of soft colour washes. Provenance: From the collection of John McPhee, art historian and connoisseur, Sydney.

        LIBRUM INSULARUM ARCHIPELAGI. E codicibus Parisinis Regiis nunc primum totum edidit, Praefatione et annotatione instruxit Gabr. Rud. Ludovicus de Sinner, Helveto-Bernas.

      Lipsiae et Berolini, apud G. Reimer, 1824. In-8 p. (mm. 207x117), mz. pelle coeva, dorso a cordoni con tit. oro (abrasioni), pp. 263, con 2 carte geografiche (Corfu e Creta) colorate a mano, ripieg. e f.t. Rara "edizione originale". L'A. (ca.1385-1430), monaco e viaggiatore, apparteneva alla famosa famiglia fiorentina dei Buondelmonti. Il suo fervore per l'antichità greca e soprattutto la sua curiosità di esplorare ed ampliare le sue conoscenze circa l'arcipelago greco, furono i motivi principali che lo indussero a partire per Rodi nel 1414. E nel mondo egeo, dove continuò a viaggiare fra le isole, soggiornò fino alla sua morte. Il "Liber Insularum Archipelagi" è l'opera sua più nota. La struttura è quella di un itinerario diviso in capitoli, ciascuno dei quali è dedicato a un'isola, oltre a capitoli dedicati a Costantinopoli, alla penisola dell'Athos, ecc. e accompagnati da carte dei luoghi descritti. Lo scopo dell'opera è naturalmente geografico e l'A. intendeva fornire con essa un'utile guida per i viaggiatori e, grazie alle carte, anche per i piloti che navigassero in quelle parti. Tuttavia il Bipndelmonti vi aggiunse tutte le notizie storiche e mitologiche che aveva potuto raccogliere su ciascuna isola dalle sue letture e dai contatti con gli abitanti. Il "Liber" fu dedicato a un patrono influente, il Cardinale Giordano Orsini e vennero stese tre redazioni. La primitiva (inviata a Orsini prima del 1420) non ci è pervenuta. Abbiamo invece una seconda con un testo più ampio completata a Rodi nel 1420 ed una terza, in forma più breve, contenente tuttavia vari brani non privi di interesse, assenti nella redazione precedente, completata a Costantinopoli nel 1422. Questo testo abbreviato del 1422 fu pubblicato per la prima volta nel 1824 dallo svizzero Gabriel Rudolf Ludwig von Sinner, basandosi sulla copia di un codice rintracciato a Parigi. Il "Liber" ebbe un successo immenso durante il Rinascimento; la redazione abbreviata del 1422 fu diffusa non solo in Italia e nell'Egeo, ma anche negli altri paesi dell'Europa Occidentale”. Così Diz. Biograf. Italiani,XV, p. 198-200. Con timbri di appartenenza, pesanti arross. alle tavole e lievi su alc. cc., ma buon esemplare.

        Carl Goebel (1824-1899) - Signed and Framed Watercolour, Nuns at.

      19th Century - DescriptionA beautiful study of two nuns at prayers in an interior. Excellently presented in a period gilt frame. Signed. On wove. ConditionCondition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration and some moderate foxing as shown. The frame has some wear and losses which have been repainted - generally the appearance is good. BiographyCarl Goebel the Younger, a landscapist, genre painter, and portraitist, was born son to the history painter Carl Peter Goebel in Vienna in 1824. He received his first training from his grandfather, the Academy professor and sculptor Joseph Klieber, who taught his grandson at the Academy of Fine Arts at a very early age. In 1838 the young Goebel was awarded the Füger Composition Prize when he was only fourteen years old. Subsequently he continued his education with Joseph Mà ssmer, Carl Gsellhofer, and Leopold Kupelwieser. Carl Goebel worked in different countries and at the major courts in Europe. Prince Alexander Schà nburg introduced him to Vienna’s noble society as a portraitist. The art of Josef Danhauser, Peter Fendi, and Johann Matthias Ranftl, in whose studio Goebel worked for some time, proved formative for his future career. His local significance lies in the production of topographical views of Vienna and of animal pictures, hunting scenes, landscapes, and genre scenes inspired by Josef Kriehuber. Starting in the 1850s, the artist undertook study trips to Kiev (1851), Venice, Reggio, and Piacenza (1855), Paris (1860/1861), Hungary and Belgrade, as well as Spain (1864) and North Africa, where he painted not only landscapes, but also genre scenes. From 1855 onwards, Carl Goebel also worked as a portrait lithographer. He died in Vienna in 1899.

        The Poetic Remains of Some of the Scottish Kings, Now First Collected

      John MUrray, London 1824 - 8vo. vii,(1),208pp. Original drab boards, cloth spine. Engraved frontispiece of James I and a large folding engraving of a charter by him in his own hand. Boards worn at edges, but text block totally uncut (as expected), though there is some light foxing to the first few pages. The cloth spine, if not original, is very early. Someone has printed the title on the spine in black ink. Contains the poetry of James V, Mary, Queen of Scots, Charles Darnley, Charles I and James VI, but the bulk of the text is devoted to James I's 'Quair'. An admirer of Chaucer and Gower, James composed the 'Quair' in the strain used by those poets. In old English, a 'quair' is a book. The poem is an allegory in which heathen deities and canonized saints are conjoined to celebrate the Lady Jane Beaufort, later the poets Queen. Scarce in first edition and not easily obtainable in boards. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Rameses; An Egyptian tale: With historical notes, Of the Era of the Pharaohs

      [Quotation from Bossuet, Histoire Universelle, tome ii.] In three volumes. Printed for G.B. Whittaker, Ave-Maria-Lane; John Upham, Bath; and Charles Upham, Exeter, 1824. 3 Vols., Post 8vo; pp.viii+341+[i (printer's imprint)]; [iv]+321+[i (printer's imprint)]; [iv]+328; publisher's quarter dark green linen, cream boards, paper spine label; a.e. uncut. Spines repaired almost invisibly with matching cloth; paper covering of boards worn at some corners, and dusty; old armorial library stamp on each title leaf, but no other signs of library use; marginal stains on pp.101-104 of volume three; some foxing to Notes of volume two, and to a few scattered gatherings towards the end of volume three, apparently indicative of a different paper stock; otherwise, and in general effect, a very nice copy. From the author's Advertisement: "It may seem objectionable to exhibit Egypt as possessing at so early a period of the world knowledge and science in certain branches of learning and art surpassing all that the moderns, with the advantages of the experience and wisdon of ages, can produce. The Notes contain the evidence and authority for such a representation of the wisdom of the Egyptians....The comparison of ancient historians with modern travellers has furnished the materials and groundwork of the tale....The author wished to comprise as large an extent of information respecting the rites, arts, and public monuments of the Egyptians, as possible; and it has been his study to keep within the limits of historic evidence, confirming and illustrating his details by ample notes, which contain such various and important matter from the earliest historians, as must interest even the general reader." The Notes, placed at the end of each volume, comprise some 125pp. The result of the author's concern with historical records is that the story is overwhelmed with descriptive detail, and is not fantasy as with most Egyptian novels of the period, but almost 'lost race', telling of marvels not obviously achievable in terms of the science of the 1820s, though not intended to be science fiction. Minor science fiction elements do, however, occur. In volume two at p.10, for example, we learn that "the lamp of wonderful workmanship burned with the amianthus, which was framed by the skill of Mizraim science to last for ages unconsumed, and contained a potent mixture, indestructible by its perpetual flame", and at pp.123-4 in volume three it is stated that the oldest of the Egyptian records hark back to a time when the year consisted of only 360 days. Well printed apart from the few foxed gatherings on good paper by Thomas Davison at Whitefriars. Not in Sadleir or Locke's Spectra; Wolff, 6925, recording a copy in pale-blue boards and labels: it is also known in similar cream boards.

        The Mystical Hymns of Orpheus.

      Chiswick: printed by C. Whittingham, for the translator, and sold by Robert Triphook,, 1824. Translated from the Greek, and demonstrated to be the Invocations which were used in the Eleusinian Mysteries. The Second Edition. With considerable emendations, alterations, and additions. Octavo (183 x 114 mm). Recent tan half calf, beige paper sides, titles in compartments with raised bands and gilt titles, brown speckled edges. With the half-title, and 6pp. publishers advertisements at the rear. Covers lightly scuffed, internally sound and clean, a very good copy. Second edition (edited and expanded since the first edition of 1787, with additional notes) of the Hymns of Orpheus by the influential translator and neoplatonist Thomas Taylor (1758-1835). Taylor was the first to translate into English the complete works of Plato and Aristotle, and also these Orphic fragments. He was such a committed Hellenist that he and his wife are reputed to have conversed only in ancient Greek. Taylor's translations influenced Romantic poets such as Blake, Wordsworth, and Shelley, and the American transcendentalists including Ralph Waldo Emerson. Later in the century, through G. R. S. Mead, the secretary of Helena Blavatsky, the Mystical Hymns of Orpheus came to the attention of the Theosophical Society, which, excited by the connection to the Eleusinian Mysteries, encouraged Bertram Dobell to print a facsimile of this second edition in 1896. The 1787 first edition was reprinted once in 1792. The 18th century impressions are rare indeed, and this expanded second edition is far from common in the trade, with no auction records apparent since 1920.
