        New York

      Philadelphia: H. S. Tanner, 1825. Engraved with full, period colour. Mild off-set throughout. Repaired 6" split at bottom of center fold. A fine example of Tanner's updated map of New York Henry Tanner's A New American Atlas , was the most distinguished atlas published in America during the nineteenth century. The maps were carefully constructed from the best and most recent surveys. They were finely engraved on a large-scale, printed on high quality paper, and carefully hand coloured. Because of the great expense involved in the production and publication, the atlas was published in five parts between 1819 and 1823. It was an ambitious project but one clearly called for as the country rapidly expanded. Western New York was among the first "western" regions of the United States on which people speculated. It was generally supposed to be better for agriculture than in fact it was; many farms were abandoned by their owners. One of the major factors in the future prosperity of the state was the Erie Canal, which opened in 1825, the year this atlas was published. The route of the "Gr. Canal" is depicted here as are the major roadways in the state. Phillips, Atlases, 3669-9; cf. Ristow, American Maps and Mapmakers , pp.191-198; Rumsey 2755.009; cf. Sabin 94323.

        Nomina eorum, qui in infima classe anno 1751 dicaturam majorem occuparunt.

      (Graz), 1751-ca. 1825. - (90) SS. Pergamentband der Zeit über Holzdeckeln mit herausragend gearbeiteten goldgeprägten ornamentalen Deckelbordüren und schwarz-roter Lackierung sowie Eckfleurons und Wolkenkleistervorsätzen. Dreiseitiger Goldschnitt. 8vo. Anbei: 9 eigenh. Gedichte von Therese ("Resi") von Lendenfeld sowie ein Brief an dieselbe. 18 SS. 8vo. Hübsches Handbüchlein eines Lehrers am Akademischen Gymnasiums zu Graz, sehr wahrscheinlich geführt vom Jesuiten Oswald Gutsmann (1727-90). Der gebürtige Kärntner und Sprachforscher des Windischen wirkte von 1748 bis 1751 in Leoben und war 1751-54 Lehrer in Graz, dann 1759-60 Präfekt des Wiener Theresianums. Akribisch vermerkt er die Namen seiner Schüler und deren Leistungen. In der Folge gelangte das Büchlein, vermutlich als Belohnung oder Erinnerung, an den Schüler Franz Xaver Edler von Lendenfeld, der, wie aus den Einträgen hervorgeht, stets zu den Besten seines Jahrgangs zählte. Der Band dürfte anschließend an seinen Sohn übergegangen sein, den Beamten und Schriftsteller Franz Xaver Rt. von Lendenfeld (5. Aug. 1769-18. Juli 1832), der 1792 das Schauspiel "Knapp Konrad der Stählerne" verfasste (bei Doll; Wernigg 1607); dieser F. X. Lendenfeld wurde Jurist und trat 1795 in die k. k. Provinzial-Staatsbuchhalterei Graz ein (vgl. OeStA, FHKA-SB Pers ORH 6039). Neben und zwischen den Lehrereintragungen finden sich zahlreiche spätere Gedichte von Lendenfelds ältester Tochter Therese ("Resi", geb. um 1807) sowie ein Abschiedsbrief in Versen an dieselbe (von einer "Sophia"?). Zu des ersten Lendenfelds Klassenkameraden zählten laut Aufzeichnungen u. a. Anton Nuvolone, Franz Xaver Stöger, Franz Lambert Schwamberger, Mathias Gutsmandl, Josef Wurmb, Josef Mayr, Kosef Wildoner, Franz Ernst Gasteiger, Josef von Blumencron, Michael Klabutschar, Franz Gebronschnigg, Alois Kaltenbrunner, Ignaz Piccardi, Josef von Pensemon, Josef Firpas und Josef Osmez. Zu den erwähnten Schülern vgl. J. Andritsch, Die Matrikeln der Univ. Graz IV (1711-65), 2002, S. 230 ff. Zu Gutsmann vgl. Kosch (Kath. Dtl.) 481. Hamberger/Meusel II, 1756. Wurzbach VI, 47.

Rückentitel u. -Dekor sowie -Blindprägedekor, Deckel mit Kiebitzpapier-Bezug. Schöne, bunt marmorierte Vorsätze in Glanzpapier. Seiten durchgehend unterschiedlich gebräunt und stockfleckig (teilw. stärker). Alters- und Lagerungs-, eher wenig eigentliche Gebrauchsspuren. Gesamthaft recht ordentliche, attraktive und gepflegte Reihe. Alle bis zu diesem Zeitpunkt erschienenen Bände. ? Bde. 1?5a (Müller: Neue verbesserte und vermehrte Auflage; Barth 10246: ?1822?1826?); übrige Bände mit Reihen- (?Johann von Müller?s Geschichten? etc.) und jeweiligem Bandtitel: Bd. 5b (Glutz-Blotzheim), Bde. 6 u. 7 (Hottinger) in Erster Ausgabe. ? Hier (noch) nicht vorhanden sind die erst deutlich später erschienenen Bände der Fortsetzer Müllers: Louis Vulliemin (8?10, dt. 1842?1845) und Charles Monnard (Bde. 11?15, dt. 1847?1853). ? Die vorliegende Reihe ist eine Darstellung der alten und älteren, im Prinzip: der mittelalterlichen Schweizergeschichte, von den Anfängen (?Des Landes Urgestalt; erste Einwohner; Interesse seiner Geschichte?) bis ins ausgehende Mittelalter und in die Zeit der Reformation (?Der Religionskrieg?, ca. 1529?Dezember 1531). ?? Der Stellenwert des ganzen Werkes liegt, vielleicht abgesehen von Müllers Behandlung des Mittelalters, aus heutiger Sicht wohl eher im Formalen als im Inhaltlichen. Kurz und stark vereinfacht gesagt: mehr in der wissenschafts- oder geistesgeschichtlichen als effektiv fachhistorischen Bedeutung, was sowohl in den spezifischen Zeitumständen als auch in Müllers persönlichen Voraussetzungen begründet liegt. ?Ein Volksbuch konnte seine Geschichte nicht werden. Jedoch den gebildeten Kreisen des In- und Auslandes gab er ein Neues: die Schweiz als Nation. Er hat zudem das erste durchgebildete Geschichtswerk in deutscher Sprache geschaffen. Sein Stil ist veraltet, nur Liebhabern geniessbar. Die Forschung ist über ihn hinweggegangen; der Mythos unserer Vergangenheit, den er zwar nicht ersonnen, aber doch gross und herrlich umgeschaffen hat, ist den Akten gewichen. Aber von Müllers Werk hat die volkstümliche Geschichtsschreibung der Schweiz im 19. Jahrhundert, über alle konfessionellen und parteipolitischen Schranken hinweg, ihren Ausgang genommen. Er erweist sich immer noch als lebenskräftig und wirkungsmächtig. Seine Schweizerhistorie ist selber Geschichte, Schicksal geworden.? (Feller/Bonjour, 2. Aufl. 1979, p. 567 ff.). ? ?Als Universalhistoriker wirkte Müller wenig auf die Nachwelt; seine farbige Schilderung der mittelalterlichen Geschichte der Eidgenossenschaft (5 Teile, 1786?1808) und sein Festhalten an der Befreiungstradition beeinflussten dagegen die historische Forschung im 19. Jahrhundert und die populäre Wahrnehmung der Schweizer Geschichte stark. [.] Als Intellektueller, Kosmopolit und sprachmächtiger ?homme de lettres? faszinierte er Historiker, Literaturwissenschaftler und Künstler des 19. und 20. Jahrhunderts.? (A. Weibel, in: HLS). ? Die Fortsetzer dieser Schweizergeschichte, allesamt ein bis fast zwei Generationen jünger als Johannes von Müller (Schaffhausen 1752?1809 Kassel), sind als eigenständige Autoren zu betrachten, fassten sie doch aus eigenem Antrieb, dem Geist Müllers zugetan, ihre Aufgabe an und nicht etwa als Bearbeiter hinterlassener Schriften. Eine ausführliche Würdigung von Müller bis Monnard geben Feller/Bonjour (pp. 578?599). ?Es brauchte siebzig Jahre, bis die erste moderne Schweizergeschichte vorlag. Müller gab den ersten Band 1780 heraus, Monnard schloss 1851 [seinen französischen Originaltext] ab. In dieser Zeit blieben sich die Vaterlandsliebe und die Methode gleich. Die Methode ging darauf aus, den Stoff aus den ersten Quellen zu sammeln, mit Seelenkunde und Sittlichkeit auszutiefen und in einer Darstellung von geschmackvoller und gepflegter Form aufquellen zu lassen. Nach Temperament, Schärfe, Kritik und Gesichtspunkten unterschieden si [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Wall map of the world - Eustache Hérison, 1825.

      WALL MAP OF THE WORLD MAP FROM THE AGE OF DISCOVERY"La Mappe Monde ou le Globe Terrestre Représenté en deux Hémisphères, l"un Oriental, l'autre Occidental, où sont marquées Les Découvertes les plus récentes Faites par Mackenzie, Vancouver, La Pérouse, Bruce, Renell, Mungo-Park, Joub Barrow et Le Vaillant'. Double-hemisphere wall map of the world, copper engraving on 2 joined leaves, by Eustache Hérisson. Revised edition published in Paris by Basset, 1825. Size: 90 x 119 cm. (hemispheres each Ø 60,5 cm). Coloured by a later hand.Very rare world map, precisely engraved and filled with finely rendered detail in the interior and along coastlines. The map includes the latest information from the discoveries of Captain Cook, who"s three voyages are chronicled.This revised edition is an update of earlier and smaller editions of the map (the first being issued in 1795) with the most recent discoveries added. The explorers Lapérouse, Alexander Mackenzie, George Vancouver, James Bruce, James Renell, Mungo Park, John Barrow and François Le Vaillant are mentioned in the caption and their respective voyages indicated on the map.About the explorers:James Cook (1728-1779) joined the British merchant navy as a teenager and joined the Royal Navy in 1755. He saw action in the Seven Years" War, and subsequently surveyed and mapped much of the entrance to the Saint Lawrence River during the siege of Quebec. This helped bring Cook to the attention of the Admiralty and Royal Society. This notice came at a crucial moment in both Cook"s career and the direction of British overseas exploration, and led to his commission in 1766 as commander of HMS Endeavour for the first of three Pacific voyages.On his voyages to the Pacific Captain Cook achieved the first recorded European contact with the eastern coastline of Australia and the Hawaiian Islands, and the first recorded circumnavigation of New Zealand. In three voyages Cook sailed thousands of miles across largely uncharted areas of the globe. He mapped lands from New Zealand to Hawaii in the Pacific Ocean in greater detail and on a scale not previously achieved. As he progressed on his voyages of discovery he surveyed and named features, and recorded islands and coastlines on European maps for the first time. He displayed a combination of seamanship, superior surveying and cartographic skills, physical courage and an ability to lead men in adverse conditions.Compte Lapérouse (1741 ? 1788?) was appointed in 1785 by Louis XVI to lead an expedition around the world. The expedition"s aims were to complete the Pacific discoveries of James Cook, correct and complete maps of the area, establish trade contacts, open new maritime routes and enrich French science and scientific collections. His ships were the Astrolabe and the Boussole. They were to explore both the north and south Pacific, including the coasts of the Far East and of Australia, and send back reports through existing European outposts in the Pacific.Alexander Mackenzie (1764 - 1820) was a Scottish explorer known for his overland crossing of what is now Canada to reach the Pacific Ocean in 1793.Captain George Vancouver (1757 ?1798) was an English officer of the Royal Navy, best known for his 1791?95 expedition, which explored and charted North America"s northwestern Pacific Coast regions, including the coasts of contemporary Alaska, British Columbia, Washington and Oregon. He also explored the Hawaiian Islands and the southwest coast of Australia.James Bruce (1730 ? 1794) was a Scottish traveller and travel writer who spent more than a dozen years in North Africa and Ethiopia, where he traced the origins of the Blue Nile.James Rennell (1742 ?1830) was the leading British geographer of his time. Rennell constructed the first nearly accurate map of India. Todays he is known as the 'Father of Indian Geography".Mungo Park (1771 ? 1806) was a Scottish explorer of the African continent. He was the first Westerner known to have travelled to the central portion of the Niger River.John Barrow (1764-1848) was an English statesman and one of the greatest promoters of British exploration. Most notably were his expeditions to West Africa and the North Polar Region with attempts to find a Northwest Passage from east to west through the Canadian Arctic.François Le Vaillant (1753 ?1824) was a French author, explorer, naturalist, zoological collector, noted ornithologist, and traveller of Africa.Price: € 3.250,- .

Verdeutscht durch Dr. Martin Luther. [Jena: Mauke, 1830?]. 8vo. 84 pp. [and] Episteln und Evangelia, wie solche auf alle Sonn-, Fest- und Feiertage durchs ganze Jahr pflegen gelesen zu werden. [Altenburg: Herzogl. Sächs. Hofbuchdr, 1829]. 8vo. 56 pp. Later printing of the popular Altenburg hymnal, this copy brightly bound in peasant style, inscribed, and clearly cherished; with two related texts. The Gesangbuch (words only) was edited by theologian Demme, and is printed in double columns of small but legible Fraktur; this 1825 edition is relatively uncommon. The publication information of the two additional works was suggested by WorldCat. Provenance: Front cover gilt-stamped M.K./S.W.M./1828. Front fly-leaf with attractively inked presentation inscription in German, signed Sophie Wiedemann in Lobitz and dated 1828, above additional inscriptions dated 1879, 1886, and 1938, the latter in English; back fly-leaf with inked prayer in Wiedemann's hand, above a later inked prayer in English, dated 1984. Binding: Contemporary varnished red paper, covers framed in gilt roll, covers and spine with floral designs painted in shades of pink, green, and yellow., front cover with gilt-stamping as above. All edges gilt, and gauffered at corners and at the spine. Pastedowns of light blue and red paste-paper. The binding is highly reminiscent of a "peasant" binding, but clearly is not one as these are generally understood: It is not vellum, not embossed; but yes, it is definitely handpainted and folk-art inspired. => A variant. Binding as above, edges and extremities rubbed, spine faded with paper chipped at joints, head, and foot, partially exposing binding structure, front joint cracked. Free endpapers lacking; fly-leaves with inscriptions as above. Sewing loosening, with some signatures slightly proud and others just starting to separate. A few instances of dried plant matter laid in, including three four-leaf clovers. Occasional spots of minor foxing; one small ink stain affecting two leaves but not obscuring text. Some corners bumped. => A multi-generational heirloom devotional, still lovely, and a very appealing example of such.

        [INTRIGUING ADVERTISING BROADSIDE FOR A WAX MUSEUM EXHIBITION, FEATURING STATUES OF WASHINGTON, JACKSON, LAFAYETTE, AND OTHERS, ca. 1825]

      [N.p., likely Medford, N.Y., 1825. Some foxing, edge wear, and wrinkling. A couple long closed tears and small holes, costing a small amount of text. Good. A striking and fascinating advertising broadside for a traveling wax figure exhibition featuring statues of Gen. George Washington, Gen. Lafayette, Gen. Andrew Jackson, three famous early American commodores (William Bainbridge, Isaac Hull, and David Porter, all commanders at one point in time of the USS Constitution), "An Elegant Figure, Representing the Goddess of Liberty," and Emperor Agustin de Iturbide, the late emperor of Mexico and his wife, both in elaborate dress. A manuscript addition identifies the time and location of the exhibit as the "Charles Stearnes Hotel in Medfard [Medford?] on Tuesday the 30 day of August 1825." Based on the date, and the military nature of the wax figures, this seems to be anticipating the 50th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence the following year. Possibly a unique copy, with no record found in OCLC.

        [COLLECTION OF FOUR MANUSCRIPT VOLUMES BELONGING TO TRADESMAN JOHN BROWNE, COMPRISED OF TWO LEDGERS AND TWO RECEIPT BOOKS]

      [Philadelphia, 1825. First ledger in calf, tooled in blind: front board detached, rear hinge broken; boards and spine scuffed and stained; scattered foxing, but contents generally very good. Second ledger in three-quarter calf and marbled boards: boards scuffed, worn at extremities, front hinge starting; some scattered foxing, but generally very good; in a cloth clamshell box. First receipt book in calf, tooled in blind: a few loose leaves; very clean internally; very good. Second receipt book in three- quarter calf and marbled boards: spine disintegrating, boards scuffed and worn; some scattered foxing and transfer between leaves; about very good. In a cloth clamshell box, leather label. An interesting collection of manuscript volumes belonging to John Browne, a boat builder and tradesman in Philadelphia. Approximately half of the material is related to Browne's business accounts, including receipts and lists of transactions. The other half, circa 1820, contains writing by Browne's wife, Molly, and possibly his children. This half of the manuscript material is of a more personal, scrapbook-esque nature, comprised of poems and pasted clippings. The first ledger holds accounts from 1776. The first twelve pages are tabbed and divided into an alphabetical index containing dozens of names. Following that are the individual accounts, comprising 121 numbered leaves, which are followed by the total summary for the ledger (7pp.), and lastly, several blank pages. The accounts detail money leant by Browne, which is then repaid in labor. The accounts are set up on facing pages, one side detailing the debt and the other the credit for said debt. Thus, on July 6, 1776, William Flud received "To Cash" £1.4.6, and the corresponding entry across the page reads "By 3 1/2 days work @ 7/0" to total £1.4.6. The debts are undersigned by the debtor and provide a fascinating glimpse into this system of loans and labor. The second of the two ledgers is more of a journal and scrapbook than an account book. Though the first five pages do contain some accounting information, they also contain a list of important familial and personal dates, a list of flowers growing in the garden, as well as two documents which have been pasted in. The first of these is a subpoena to Browne from the Court on the island of Tortola, dated January 13, 1798 and embossed with an official seal. The subpoena calls Browne to testify "in our behalf the truth of your Knowledge in a certain business of the Capture made by John Hodge Commander of [a] Private Commissioned Schooner." The majority of the middle of the volume is blank, though ruled for accounts. The latter half of the volume is written from the other side, making the rear board, in fact, the front board. This section of the ledger is, presumably, written by Browne's wife, Molly, circa 1820. It is primarily composed of verse and various pieces of prose, most of which have been copied from other sources. There are other manuscript pages pasted into this section which contain similar writings. The first of the receipt books has a few scattered entries dated 1776, 1779, 1792, and 1801, but the bulk of the book is devoted to 1788. The entries for 1788 deal almost exclusively with receipts for rent, though the other earlier and later entries are for items such as timber, and in one instance, a horse. The first few leaves have been pasted over with clippings from early newspapers. These are mostly verse, though there are some advertisements and brief news items. The second receipt book has been pasted over quite thoroughly, circa 1820, with many different and interesting woodcut illustrations. The contents of this volume provide an interesting snapshot of the printing arts at that time. Illustrations have been clipped from newspapers and periodicals, books and almanacs, packaging labels and revenue stamps, encompassing everything from advertisements for new products and services to zodiac calendars. One illustration shows a sperm whale, which is labeled "Candles and Spermoil"; another shows an early printing press under the banner, "The tyrant's foe, the people's friend." There are also several original children's drawings, as well as scraps of wallpaper and flocking. A truly fascinating little book.
