        Wellenlehre auf Experimente gegrundet

      Leipzig: Gerhard Fleischer, 1825. Weber, Ernst Heinrich (1795-1878) & Weber, Wilhelm Eduard (1804-1891). Wellenlehre auf Experimente gegrundet. . . . 8vo. xxviii, 574, [2]pp. 2 printed folding tables, 18 folding engraved plates. Leipzig: Gerhard Fleischer, 1825. 209 x 130 mm. Half speckled sheep, marbled boards c. 1825, rebacked. Light foxing & browning, otherwise very good. First Edition. Garrison-Morton 766. The Weber brothers' Wellenlehre, containing experimental investigations of water and sound waves, was the first work to apply hydrodynamics to the circulation of the blood. In 1827 Ernst Weber, assisted again by his brother Wilhelm, described how the arteries' elasticity transforms the pulsing motion of the blood in the large vessels to a smooth motion in the smaller ones. In 1834, with his brother Eduard (1806-1871), Ernst became the first to measure the velocity of the pulse wave, which he showed to be much faster than the flow of the blood. Ernst Weber's work laid the base for the exact analysis of fluid motion in elastic tubes. DSB. Norman 2190.

        The Gold Temple of the principal Idol Guadma, taken from its front being the Eastern face of the Great Dagon Pagoda at Rangoon

      Kingsbury & Co. and Thomas Clay, London 1825 - Hand-coloured aquatint plates engraved by G. Hunt after Moore. Very good condition apart from some light soiling. A beautiful plate from Moore's book "Eighteen Views taken at & Near Rangoon," an important visual record of the Burmese countryside and scenery, and of the war between the Burmese and British in 1824 to 1826. Following Burmese incursions into British held territory in 1821-1823 (including the successful invasion of Assam), the Governor-General, Lord Amherst, declared war on Burma on February 24, 1824. The British were successful in expelling the Burmese from Assam, but Bandula, the ablest of the Burmese generals, repelled a British detachment at Ramu on the Chittagong frontier. In reply, the British sent an expedition of 11,000 men under Major-General Archibald Campbell and ships under Captain Frederick Marryat to attack Rangoon by sea. The expedition resulted in the capture of Rangoon on May 11, 1824, with the Burmese forces fleeing into jungles of Pegu. Meanwhile, Bandula had been recalled and arrived in Rangoon on December 1 with 60,000 men. He was, however, defeated on December 15 and then retreated to Donabew, where, after a brave defence, he was killed in April 1825. On April 25, Campbell captured Prome, the capital of Lower Burma. The fighting continued sporadically throughout the rest of 1825 and into 1826, until a peace treaty was signed on February 24. Joseph Moore, a Lieutenant in the 89th Regiment, includes images that begin with the departure of Campbell's invasion force and conclude in July 1824. They are a finely balanced mixture of eye-witness battle scenes with a number of very fine views of the countryside and buildings in and around Rangoon. Frederick Marryat's involvement in the conflict began in March 1823 when he "commissioned the Larne for service in the East Indies, where he arrived in time to take an active part in the first Burmese war. From May to September 1824 he was senior naval officer at Rangoon, and was officially thanked for his able, gallant, and zealous co-operation with the troops. The very sickly state of the ship obliged him to go to Penang, but by the end of December he was back at Rangoon, and in February 1825 he had the naval command of an expedition up the Bassein River, which occupied Bassein and seized the Burmese magazines. [It was during this period that he made the sketches worked up into the plates in the second part of the present work]." ( DNB ) Abbey Travel II, 404; Tooley 334. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The Free-Mason [i e Freemasons] Almanac for the Year 1826 Being the second after bissextile, and the fiftieth of Columbian independence Fitted to the town of Enfield, Mass but will serve for any of the adjoining states

      Enfield, MASS.: Printed and sold [by John Howe?], price 5 dollars a groce, 50 cents a dozen, 6 cents single, 1825. FIRST EDITION. IN VERY GOOD ANTIQUARIAN CONDITION. 24 pp., title vignette depicting the symbolic Masonic triangle and compass. Collation: [A-B]2 [C-D]4 COMPLETE. Old wrappers, stitched. Scattered light to moderate foxing Highly curious "Free-Mason Almanac," PRINTED IN ENFIELD, MASS., A TOWN THAT NO LONGER EXISTS and now lies completely submerged beneath the Quabbin Reservoir, in Hampshire County. Incorporated in 1818, and disincorporated in 1938, Enfield was centered at the junction of the east and west branches of the Swift River. The last building in Enfield was razed in 1940. The Quabbin Reservoir is the primary water supply of Bostom, some 65 miles to the east. Whereas the printer of the above Almanac is not named, the only printer in Enfield was John Howe (1784-1845) who also printed at Greenwich. This is the last in a long series of almanacs he published; it would appear that it the only Masonic item that Howe ever printed, almanac or otherwise. The preceding issues were entitled Howe's Almanac and Howe's Genuine Almanac. The title-page format of the present work is virtually identical with that of Howe's Genuine Almanac for 1824 and 1825. Contains a "Charade, for Howe's Almanac" (p. [22]) and an article on Freemasonry (pp. [22-23]). REFERENCE: Clifford Shipton, "Publications of the Howes of Enfield and Greenwich" in: Proceedings of the AAS, vol. 60, pt. 2 (1950), pp. 222.

        Record of Orders for Town Charges." TOWN ACCOUNT BOOK. Manuscript on Paper

      New Portland, Massachusetts, 1825-1847. Covers scuffed and partially stained, occasional waterstaining inside, overall IN VERY GOOD ANTIQUARIAN CONDITION, COMPLETELY UNSOPHISTICATED. Small 8vo (7.5 x 4.5") pages unnumbered, bound in original quarter calf over plain boards. Contemporary ink on cover, "Record of Orders for Town Charges," Sept. 1, 1825 - Nov. 15, 1847 HIGHLY INTERESTING MANUSCRIPT ACCOUNT BOOK OF THE TOWN NEW PORTLAND, FORMERLY IN MASSACHUSETTS, SUBSEQUENTLY GIFTED BY LEGISLATION TO MAINE, IN COMPENSATION FOR THE BURNING OF FALMOUTH (TODAY KNOWN AS PORTLAND, MAINE) BY THE BRITISH DURING THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR. It is of the greatest interest that New Portland, MA (i.e. ME) was first settled by Revolutionary War veterans in 1773; financial records of the early township, the settlers, their children and their grandchildren, appear throughout the present manuscript. It would appear that almost no early records of the town survive, financial or otherwise: thus the present manuscript is of the greatest interest to historians of Massachusetts, Maine, and beyond. The account book is penned in several clear hands, in medium-brown and occasionally blue ink, its chroniclers unnamed but diligent. Many of the town's pioneers as well as local places are named. A few sample entries: "Dec. 5, 1825: Order drawn in favor of S. Gould for advertising 3 petitions and for abatements: $7.00... Jan. 1, 1833: Order in favor of James Spear for rations for himself & a private in his Company & for Elder Hutchins... Mar. 15, 1834: P. Strickland for building School House, $210.00... Mar. 7, 1835: Tobias Churchill for furnishing clothes to Love Butler, a pauper, $6.50... Nov. 13, 1836: James Hutchins for his services as committee on the bridge at Churchill's falls, $5.00 [David Hutchins was the very first settler of the village, in 1783]... Jan. 24, 1843: for damage on acct. of bad roads the present winter, $4.00...." Other orders for gun powder, saving bridge timber, "for working highway," "blowing rocks," "chaise & waggon," medical services, "supplies to paupers," "highway taxes," "poll taxes," auctioneers license, retailer license, "school district tax," "paying cash to soldiers," and much, much more. The account book is a veritable mine of original source material concerning the finances of the early pioneers in this area; for instance: "Mar. 22, 1826: Order in favor of Josiah Parker for balance due him on settlement as treasurer, $167.50"). In 1786 Josiah Parker arrived at New Portland from Groton, Mass. He had served in the Fourth Regiment of Massachusetts militia during the Revolutionary, and was honorably discharged at West Point. "He subsequently bore an honorable and arduous part in the affairs of this town" SOURCE: "History of New Portland, Maine, From a Gazetteer of the State of Maine" by Geo. J. Varney, Boston, B.B. Russell, 1886). THE WIRE SUSPENSION BRIDGE: New Portland is famous for its extremely early and largely original Wire Suspension Bridge, believed to be the earliest surviving example in the United States. Scholars and architectural historians disagree about the date of conception, construction, and completion, yet the present account book provides conclusive answers about all of the above. See for instance the orders paid on March 7, 1840 to "John Hansen for plans for the bridge at the falls" and to "John Newall for building abutments under the bridge at the falls." From 1840 to 1847, this account book provides records of exact amounts that were paid to named workers, suppliers, and engineers for construction on the bridge. Interestingly, the greatest number of orders were paid by the town in 1847, specifically July 15, September 10, and September 25, 1847. Marilyn Gorman and Dianne Pease, in their "Bridges of West New Portland" (Maine Memory Record Online) give an insightful history of the New Portland Wire Suspension Bridge. On June 20, 1842 the bridge was opened to traffic, the cost was "$2200." A FASCINATING ENCAPSULATION OF THE BIRTH, HARDSHIPS, FINANCES, AND DOLLAR VALUES OF THIS EARLY MASSACHUSETTS TOWN.

Some hinges slightly cracked. Wear to extremities. Scattered foxing throughout. Seminary stamps on prelims and title pages. Includes the Antiquites de L'Eglise Anglo-Saxone, Justification de la Histoire D'Angleterre and tableux volumes. Par le Dr John Lingard ; traduite de l'anglais par M. le Chevalier de Roujoux. Brunet III 1084. Lingard?s History of England is an unusual but esteemed for its sagacity and dedication to research. Unusual in the regards that Lingard, a Catholic, wrote a History of England for Protestants but also to emphasize the disastrous effects of the Reformation while being temperate in his beliefs He was devoted to absolute accuracy and detail and the History is a groundbreaking work in its use of primary sources. Lingard made extensive use of Vatican archives and French, Italian, Spanish and English dispatches, document collections and state papers ? the first British historian to do so. This edition continues up into the end of George III reign. William Cobbett used Lingard?s history as an unbiased reference source for his own History of the Protestant Reformation in which he puts forward the argument that the reformation had disastrous consequences for the ordinary people of England.

Bookplate of John L. Clawson. With an ALS With an ALS from Egan tipped in, dated December 19, 1836, to a Mr. Simpson, regarding the latter's staring role in The Hunchback, part of a benefit performance to be put on by Egan the following day. The letter reads in part, "You did not cross the water to-day according to promise. The Hunchback will be reherarsed tomorrow at Eleven ... Therfore, "be a good boy" and *train* at home tonight, by a good night's repose ... I am happy to say the Box Sheet promises well, Therefore, my Rum One, remember *Eleven* ..." The Figaro in London reviewd the benefit, and despite Egan's evident worries about Simpson's preparedness, was pleased with the performance. In the review we learn that Simpson was not a trained actor, but a biscut baker in the Strand by day. With original part issue number 2, illustrated with one hand-colored plate ("A spirited Scene, and full of Characters. PROTEUS, and his brother Actors ..."), in original sewn wrappers.

An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "Von ganzem Herzen wünsche ich dass Ihre Briefe Ihre völlige Wiederherstellung bewirkt haben möchte, und ich hoffe es auch, den Zerstreuung ist gewiß für viele Leiden das beste, dass einzige Mittel. Nur muß ich beklagen dass Sie uns bez. dieser Gelegenheit nicht das Vergnügen machten uns zu besuchen, gewiß hätten Sie in unserem kleinen Donaueschingen auch einige Zeit recht angenehm hinbringen sollen, und die freundlichste Aufnahme hätten Sie gewiß erwarten dürfen. Beiliegend übersende ich Ihnen nun wieder ein Heft Divertissements für eine Flöte, und ich glaube hoffen zu dürfen dass sie allen Liebhabern willkommen sein werden, denn gewiß habe ich keine Mühe gespart, und sie mit möglichster Überlegung geschrieben damit sie ihrem Zweck vollkommen entsprechen möchten. Den Titel habe ich diesmal deutsch gemacht, und ich denke Sie werden ihn ebenfalls zweckmäßig finden. Das früher geschriebene No: 3.) habe ich wieder heraus genommen, und ein anderes gemacht, Sie finden diese Nummer nun als Beilage und werden Sie schon gehörig einschalten lassen, ich habe nichts zum umwenden eingerichtet, indem ich wohl weiß dass Ihre Herrn Stecher viel besser als ich mit dergleichen umzugehen wissen [ ]". Keller wurde 1817 Hofmusiker und später Theaterkapellmeister in Donaueschingen. - Gefaltet.

        Histoire D'Angleterre. Complete 24 Volume Set

      Paris : Carie : Parent-Desborres, 1825-01-01. Hardcover. Good. Octavo. Mixed 24 Volumes Set. Bound in contemporary quarter green leather. Gilt spine. Marbled boards. Marbled page ends. Good bindings and covers. Some hinges slightly cracked. Wear to extremities. Scattered foxing throughout. Seminary stamps on prelims and title pages. Includes the Antiquites de L'Eglise Anglo-Saxone, Justification de la Histoire D'Angleterre and tableux volumes. Par le Dr John Lingard ; traduite de l'anglais par M. le Chevalier de Roujoux. Brunet III 1084. Lingard’s History of England is an unusual but esteemed for its sagacity and dedication to research. Unusual in the regards that Lingard, a Catholic, wrote a History of England for Protestants but also to emphasize the disastrous effects of the Reformation while being temperate in his beliefs He was devoted to absolute accuracy and detail and the History is a groundbreaking work in its use of primary sources. Lingard made extensive use of Vatican archives and French, Italian, Spanish and English dispatches, document collections and state papers â€?" the first British historian to do so. This edition continues up into the end of George III reign. William Cobbett used Lingard’s history as an unbiased reference source for his own History of the Protestant Reformation in which he puts forward the argument that the reformation had disastrous consequences for the ordinary people of England.

One hundred La Fontainesque verse fables, illustrated with twelve evocative chalk lithographs by Engelmann, printed at his lithographic press, the first in Paris. Though better known as the pioneer of lithography in France (cf. Bigmore & Wyman I:199-200), Engelmann was an excellent draftsman (?"ein trefflicher Zeichner?": Nagler Künstler-Lexicon 4:128), as is evident from these charming vignettes. Using a variety of classic verse forms Deyeux applied his sharp wit to the foibles of his contemporaries. He published other collections on the hunt, and a number of the poems and several lithographs in this collection depict hunters or scenes from nature Gumuchian 2196 (a copy in the same publisher?'s binding, also untrimmed); Quérard II, 549.

        Mann, der sich über die nicht der Konvention entsprechenden Bekleidung einer Frau entsetzt.

      . Aquarell und Bleistift, auf Velin. 17,3:21,2 cm.. Gavarni, der zu den Meistern der Lithographie des 19. Jahrhunderts zählt, entschloß sich erst 1825 zur künstlerischen Laufbahn. Davor hatte er bei einem Mechaniker und dann bei einem Maschineningenieur eine Lehre absolviert. 1824 hatte er bereits Unterricht bei Je. Adam im Kupferstechen erhalten. 1824/25 ging er nach Bordeaux, anschließend begab er sich für drei Jahre auf Wanderschaft durch die Pyrenäen. Nach seiner Rückkehr nach Paris 1828 begann er autodidaktisch auf geistreich-ironische Weise das Pariser Leben der Salons, Bälle und des Theater zu erfassen. Diese ersten, jetzt mit "Gavarni" signierten Blätter fanden rasch Anerkennung. Die bekanntesten Magazine und Modezeitschriften warben ihn als Illustrator an. Ab 1837 arbeitete er für das Satireblatt "Le Charivari", das zwischen 1832 und 1837 herausgegeben wurde und durch das er internationale Bekanntheit erlangte. Für diese Zeitschrift, aber auch den Figaro und die zweite "Caricature" schuf er die berühmtesten Folgen. Ab 1831 war er auch literarisch tätig. Ein Aufenthalt in London 1847-1851 brachten eine bedeutende motivische Erweiterung: Er zeigt sich jetzt nicht mehr als "Chronist" der mondän-eleganten Welt, sondern als Anhänger der sogenannten "Arme-Leute-Malerei" mit ihrer realistischen und nicht idealisierenden Absicht. Es entstanden zahlreiche Blätter, die das Leben der Armen auf vielfältige Weise thematisierten. Der Tod seines Sohnes und zunehmende Krankheiten führten zum Rückzug von der Umwelt und letztendlich auch von der künstlerischen Arbeit. In den letzten Jahren entstanden keine Zeichnungen mehr und nur wenige Aquarelle. Größere Kollektionen von Handzeichnungen und Aquarellen bewahren der Louvre und das Museum in Brest.
