        Altenburgisches Gesangbuch nebst Gebeten.

      Altenburg: Herzogl. Sächs. Hofbuchbruderen 8vo (17.4 cm, 6.8"). [2], [v]/vi, 417, [1] pp.. 1825 [with] Bible. O.T. Psalms. German. Des Königs und Propheten Davids Psalter. 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.

      [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.

      [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.

        Picture of New York - Miniature Guide from 1825

      New York: Mahlon Day , 1825. Chapbook for children, measuring only 3.5 x 2.25 inches, contained in a custom made, half leather clamshell box. It lists New York as having 150,000 inhabitants. The publisher Mahlon Day was located at 376 Pearl St., New York, from 1825 to 1833. There are very few copies in institutional holdings. A copy sold on the open market in 2003 that being the Dr. Rosenbach copy with his bookplate. This copy is preserved in a custom made clamshell box. Before Baedeker perfected the vacation travel guide, some innovative authors published individual city guidebooks to select cities, known as "strangers' guides". Aimed primarily at business travelers, they typically list the roads and primary establishments in a city. A few of these guides were also published as giveaways for children. They often were in the form of little chapbooks and were highly ephemeral. Few survive to this day. . First Edition.

        Juristische Encyclopaedie, diktiert von Hl. Prof. Welker im Winterkurse 1825/26. (Vorlesungsmitschrift von unbekannter Hand).

      (Freiburg im Breisgau) 1825 - (Freiburg im Breisgau) 1825-26. 8vo. 312 handbeschriebene Seiten. Einfacher, zeitgenössischer Pappband mit geprägtem Rückenschild. Vorlesungsmitschrift an der Universität Freiburg im Breisgau. - Welcker (1790-1869) war der wichtigste und auch populärster liberaler Politiker und Jurist im 19. Jahrhundert. Durch sein Auftreten im badischen Landtag (1833-1848) und vor allem durch sein Wirken im Paulskirchenparlament erlangte er ausserordentliche Popularität. Sein Engagement entwickelte sich bald mehr auf dem praktisch-politischen Feld als in der Herausgabe wissenschaftlicheer Literatur. Der gebürtige Hesse studierte die Rechts- und Staatswissenschaften in Gießen (seit 1806) und Heidelberg. Nach der Habilitation im Jahre 1813 erhielt er 1814 einen Ruf zum o. Professor an die Universität Gießen, er folgten weitere Rufe an die Universitäten Kiel (1814-1816, hier Mitherausgeber der frühliberalen "Kieler Blätter"), Heidelberg (1816-1819), Bonn (1819-1822) und Freiburg im Breisgau (1822-1832). Aufgrund der vielfältigen politischen Betätigung beendete Welcker seine akademische Laufbahn bereits im Jahre 1832. Sein liberales Wirken in Baden, als Mitglied der Zweiten Badischen Kammer (1831-1851), machten ihn zum führenden Vertreter des süddeutschen Liberalismus. Er nahm als Abgeordneter 1848-49 an der Frankfurter Nationalversammlung teil (Casino-Fraktion, Fraktion Pariser Hof), war neben Bassermann, Dahlmann, Waitz und Droysen als Mitglied des Verfassungsausschusses an der Ausarbeitung einer gesamtdeutschen Verfassung beteiligt, zudem im Jahre 1848 in verschiedenen Funktionen für die Provisorische Zentralgewalt tätig. Publizistisch sind uns von Welcker vor allem 2 Monographie überliefert ("Die letzten Gründe" von 1813 sowie "Jury, Schwur- und Geschworenengericht" von 1840), zudem Erläuterungen zu den "Urkunden für den Rechtszustand der deutschen Nation" (von Johann Ludwig Klüber gesammelt). Daneben steht die Herausgeberschaft der "Kieler Blätter" (mit Friedrich Christoph Dahlmann und Nikolaus Falck), der Zeitung "Der Freisinnige" (gemeinsam mit Karl von Rotteck) sowie - wie ein Leuchtfeuer des deutschen Liberalismus im 19. Jahrhundert - des "Staats-Lexikons" (1834-1843 in 15 Bänden, gemeinsam mit Karl von Rotteck; die 2. Auflage in 12 Bänden - 1845-1848 - sowie die 3. Auflage in 14 Bänden - 1856-1866 - besorgte Welcker alleine). In dem Zusammenhang ist die vorliegende Vorlesungsmitschrift zur "Encyclopaedie" von allergrößtem Interesse.

        Fac Similes of Sketches

      1825. first edition. His sketches approached nearest to Hogarth of any painter of his period in the representation of life and manners"BUNBURY, H[enry]. W[illiam]. Fac Similes of Sketches by H.W. Bunbury Esqre. Never Before Published, No.1 [all published]. London: Printed by C. Hullmandel for R. Ackermann, 1825. First (only) Edition of Part One (all published). Large folio (21 7/8 x 15 inches; 557 x 381 mm.). Complete set of seven hand-colored lithographed plates (in landscape form) by W. Hunt after Bunbury on five sheets. Plates watermarked "J. Whatman 1824"Stitched in original buff printed wrappers with "To be completed in Four Numbers, each containing Five Plates." and No. "I" and Price "£1.0.0." in ink. Wrappers slightly creased and frayed at edges, otherwise fine. Chemised in a half black morocco clamshell case.Exceptionally Rare. Intended as a series of four parts, each with five plates, but only this first part was published. Only one copy recorded at auction. The British Museum have four of the plates (uncolored).1. "Dose-Ing the Squire"2. "A small account Sir ___ May have slipped your memory"3. "The Complete (April Ist.) Angler"4. "Bribery" and "Corruption" (two images on one plate)5. "Fee, Fa, Fum" and "The Nurse" (two images on one plate)Henry William Bunbury (1750-1811) "From 1795 to 1811, the year of his death, the publication of his works was very intermittent, only an occasional one at long intervals making its appearance. In 1811 "Patience in a Punt," and "Anglers in 1811," etched by Rowlandson, were published, and in 1825 R. Ackermann published "Facsimiles of Sketches by H.W. Bunbury, Esq., never before published." They were executed in lithography, and were advertised to be completed in four numbers, each containing five plates. Whether more than one part ever appeared it is difficult to say. There is a copy of the first number in the Print Room of the British Museum, and that is the only one we can trace. Bunbury remained an amateur to the end of his life, and may be instanced as a proof that where there is an original faculty for any particular art it will develop itself, though the possessor may be entirely unacquainted with the scientific principles of art. He had the happy facility of reading character at sight, and the rare power of embodying whatever impressed itself upon his memory in a style peculiarly his own. He was inferior in humour to Rowlandson, and in satire to Gillray, but as a delineator of character it is stated "that his sketches approached nearest to Hogarth of any painter of his period in the representation of life and manners: his pencil never transgresses the limits of good taste and delicacy, and had he been under the necessity of pursuing art for profit, instead of amusement and pleasure only, he would probably have made a great fortune." During his own day he was not only made much of by persons of high social position, but artists and critics alike vied with each other in bestowing praise on his designs. Horace Walpole coveted the sketches which Bunbury exhibited on the walls of the Academy, while Sir J. Reynolds and Benjamin West combined to pay their finest compliments to the artist."

      [Oruro (?), 1825. Early folds. Very light staining, else near fine. An extremely rare, and possibly unrecorded, example of one of Gen. Antonio de Olañeta's final proclamations to the public, issued three months before his death. Olañeta was a major royalist leader during Bolivia and Peru's fight for independence, serving as a major-general and the commander-in-chief of Upper Peru (Bolivia) from 1823 to his death in 1825. In December 1824, after the revolutionaries' watershed victory at Ayachuco, Olañeta headed to the south of Chile to make a final stand for Spain. On April 4, during an attempt to quell a disturbance within one of his battalions, Olañeta was shot and killed by one of his own soldiers. In the present proclamation, signed in print at Ururo on Jan. 24, 1825, Olañeta declares that the Army of the North has been scattered by a treason of the "so-called liberals" and launches an invective against José de la Serna, Peru's last viceroy and general-in-chief, who lost Ayachuca and whom Olañeta had long opposed. He promises that the king's cause in Peru is not all lost, and calls for the towns of upper and lower Peru to maintain peace in the face of anarchy while the army continues to work to save them. Not in Palau or OCLC, and possibly unique.
