        The Mysteries of Trade: Or, The Source of Great Wealth, containing receipts and patents in chemistry and manufacturing, with practical observations on the useful arts, original and compiled

      Printed for the author by Wm. Bellamy, Boston 1825 - 152 pages. Sections on fermentation and distillation, beer, wines (including honey wine, or mead), distillation, brandy, gin, rum, whiskey (made from carrots!), cordials, cochineal, vinegar, bread, leather, blacking, butter, cheese, cider, etc. Pages 9-78 are devoted to alcohol in its many forms, frequently with very specific recipes. The recipe for honey wine calls for comb honey (although the author concedes that clean honey is better), egg whites and sand. Whiskey made from carrots instead of barley is not only less expensive, it provides more food for the hogs when distillation is finished. An uncommon book. Maynard, A Bibliography on Grapes, Wines, Other Alcoholic Beverages. 282; Shaw and Shoemaker, 19656. First edition (first printing). A lovely copy in a (mid-19th century?) binding of dark blue morocco with a gilt chain pattern around the edges. Both front and rear flyleaves are present. Modern bookplate on inside front cover; early ownership signatures in pen and pencil inside; minor foxing. Errata slip tipped in at back. The joints are tender. A very nice copy.

        Ryoritsu [trans.: Fancy Dishes]

      Many full-page or double-page woodcuts in the text (ten of which are printed in delicate color) & woodcuts in the text. Four vols. Small 8vo, orig. blue embossed wrappers (two vols. with some repaired worming), orig. block printed title label on each upper cover, new stitching. Tokyo: 1825-35. First edition of this famous illustrated book. The restaurant Yaozen, founded in 1717 in Tokyo, was considered one of the two best gourmet restaurants in Japan for several hundred years (it continues today as a catering business). It was so famous that it was selected by the shogun to cater the official reception banquet for Admiral Perry. The restaurant had traditionally been patronized by high government officials and the literati of Japan for many generations. The fourth owner, Zenshiro Kuriyama (d. 1839), wrote the present book describing the most famous menus and presentations -- including Japanese, Buddhist, Chinese, vegetarian, and Western -- which the restaurant could prepare. The illustrations are particularly beautiful and delicate and the artists involved in the making of this book, all of whom were patrons of the restaurant, include Hoitsu Sakai, Buncho Tani, Hokusai Katsushika, Keisai Kuwagata, and Kunisada. Two famous poets -- Nanbo Ota and Bosai Kameda -- have furnished texts for the book. The woodcuts, which are very handsome, include a detailed view of the restaurant, depictions of preparations for a party, deliveries through the back door, table settings, etc. The fine color woodcuts depict various ingredients, including wasabi roots, mushrooms, fish, shell fish, tea leaves, shrimp, fiddle ferns, and root vegetables. Apart from the worming, which is limited to ten leaves and is not offensive, a fine set. Rare. .

        Ruhender Jäger mit Hunden; der Jäger in der Tracht des 16. Jahrhunderts.

      . Radierung, auf Bütten. 17,9:13,2 cm. Literatur: Nagler Monogrammisten II, 2067; vgl. Thieme/Becker XI, S. 375. - Die einzige bekannte Radierung Fellners! Provenienz: Aus dem Nachlaß der Familie Fellner, Frankfurt am Main.. Nach dem Jurastudium hat sich der 1825 unter die Advokaten seiner Heimatstadt Aufgenommene autodidaktisch zum Maler ausgebildet. Im Oktober 1825 ging er nach München, wo ihn vornehmlich P. von Cornelius (1783-1867) beeinflusste. 1831 ließ er sich in Stuttgart nieder, wo er bis an sein Lebensende blieb. Seine hervorragendste Bedeutung hat Fellner als Zeichner, der aus Geschichte, Sage und Dichtung mit unerschöpflicher Phantasie immer neue Begebenheiten darstellte und sich dabei bewusst an den Charakter altdeutscher Kunst anschloß. Ein Teil seines zeichnerischen Nachlasses befindet sich heute im Städelschen Kunstintstitut, Frankfurt a.M.

Piano dell'Opera: Tomo I - III: "Viaggi alle Due Sicilie e in alcune parti dell'Appennino" (pg.XXXII, 392; 468; 572); Tomo IV - V: "Dissertazioni varie" ("Prodromo di un'opera da imprimersi sopra le riproduzioni animali", "Dell'azione del cuore ne' vasi sanguigni", "De' fenomeni della circolazione"; "Memorie sulla respirazione", "Saggio di osservazioni microscopiche concernenti il sistema della generazione de' signori Needham e Buffon"; pg.452; 364); Tomo VI: "Opuscoli di fisica animale e vegetabile" )"Osservazioni e sperienze intorno agli animalucci delle infusioni in occasione che si esaminano alcuni articoli della nuova opera del Sig.

"Spallanzani nacque il 12 gennaio 1729 a Scandiano, vicino a Reggio Emilia, da Gian Nicola, giureconsulto, e da Lucia Ziliani, primo di nove fratelli. Anche se agiata, la famiglia numerosa condizionò la sua precoce scelta per lo stato clericale. Fatti i primi studi a Scandiano, a 15 anni entrò nel Collegio dei gesuiti di Reggio per seguire i corsi di retorica e filosofia e di qui passò a Bologna per studiare diritto e seguire così la carriera paterna. Spallanzani decise però di abbandonare il diritto per la filosofia naturale, spinto a ciò dalla cugina Laura Bassi, docente di Fisica generale all?Università. A Bologna Spallanzani studiò anche greco, francese, matematica e astronomia, e apprese l'uso del microscopio. Accettò quindi nel 1757 l'insegnamento di greco nel Seminario e di fisica e matematica all'Università di Reggio. Nel 1762, a trentatré anni, prese gli ordini sacerdotali e nel 1763 si trasferì a Modena per insegnare filosofia all'Università e matematica e greco presso il Collegio di San Carlo. Grazie alla fama acquisita con le ricerche condotte tra il 1761 e il 1768, Spallanzani fu chiamato a Pavia dal plenipotenziario della Lombardia austriaca Carlo di Firmian per ricoprire l?insegnamento di Storia Naturale in una delle fasi più intense della riforma dell?Università. Spallanzani si trasferì a Pavia entro il novembre del 1769 e assunse la cattedra e la direzione del Museo dell?Università, di cui fu anche rettore nell?anno 1777 - 1778. Pur lamentandosi del clima insalubre della città, vi rimase per trent?anni, anche se passò sempre le vacanze estive a Scandiano. Spallanzani continuò a lavorare come al solito fino a qualche giorno prima della morte. Lo scienziato morì nella notte tra l'11 e il 12 febbraio 1799" (dal sito dell'Università di Pavia).

        Autograph letter signed to Michael Faraday

      Manchester 1825 - To Michael Faraday, Regarding Faraday's Discovery of BenzeneHenry, William (1774-1836). Autograph letter signed to Michael Faraday (1791-1867). Manchester, Dec. 6, 1825. 1 page plus portion of address leaf containing Henry's autograph direction to Faraday, the whole mounted on a larger leaf with a handwritten caption at the foot. Light soiling to address portion, otherwise fine.From the noted British chemist William Henry, enunciator of "Henry's Law" of the solubility of gases and author of Elements of Experimental Chemistry (1801 & 10 subsequent eds.), the most popular and successful English-language chemistry textbook of its day; to Michael Faraday, one of the most influential scientists in history, whose investigations of electricity and magnetism established the basis for the electromagnetic field concept in physics and formed the foundation of electric motor technology. Faraday was also one of the most famous chemists of his time, with most of his major discoveries in chemistry being accomplished in the 1820s. The letter, concerning Faraday's discovery of benzene in 1825, reads as follows:"My dear Sir, Although the vol. of Phil. Trans. containing your paper on the compounds of Carbon and Hydrogen is not yet published, and will probably be anticipated by my new edition, yet I presume there can be nothing inconsistent with the laws or usages of the Royal Society, if I give an abstract of it in my forthcoming edition. This I shall as before introduce into an Appendix, unless I hear to the contrary from you. But if any objection strikes you, I must beg the favour of you to write by an early post, otherwise I will not put you to the trouble of a letter on the subject. Believe me, Dear Sir, Yours most faithfully, Willm. Henry."Henry is referring here to Faraday's "On new compounds of carbon and hydrogen, and on certain other products obtained during the decomposition of oil by heat" (Philosophical Transactions [1825]: 440-66), in which Faraday announced his successful isolation of benzene (C6H6), which he named "bi-carburet of hydrogen." It would appear that Henry did indeed get Faraday's permission to abstract the 1825 paper, as an account of Faraday's researches in this area appears in the eleventh edition of Henry's Elements of Experimental Chemistry (1829).

        Ten years after writing ?The Star-Spangled Banner? waving o?er the land of the free, lawyer Francis Scott Key assures a Maryland Post Master that a young slave, duly purchased by a friend, is in no danger of being legally taken away but, since there is the ?danger ? that they would steal the child away or get possession of her by force,? Key suggests to seek ?an injunction ... to prevent the party or his agent from any attempt to take her from his possession??

      "Autograph Letter Signed ?F.S. Key,? 1.25 pages, 7.5? x 12.5?, front & verso. George Town, January 24, 1825. Integral leaf addressed by Key to ?Mr Jas. P. Stabler / P.M. / Sandy Spring / Montg[omer]y Co[un]ty Maryland.? Faint Georgetown D.C. Jan 25 postmark. Minor flaws. Expertly strengthened at folds. Very good condition.In full, ?I remember the old man mentioned in your letter & his story ?" He is in no danger from any legal measures that may be resorted to to take the child away from him: & he did not inform me that there was any cause to apprehend that they would resort to force or stealth ?" though I can easily believe that those who would wish to take her away would not be scrupulous about the means.?The paper & the proof he has, are quite sufficient there was no necessity for a more formal paper, nor that it should be recorded ?" The only difficulty was as to his wife?s being the purchaser ?" But this I think of no consequence, as she would be considered as his agent, & as making the purchase for him: & as he has been in possession of the child so long, they could not recover her from him by a suit ?" the Statute of limitations would of it self be a bar to their claim.?But his only danger is the one you suggest ?" that they would steal the child away or get possession of her by force.?To prevent this, I would recommend that a Bill be filed, setting out the facts, & praying to have his title confirmed, & an injunction granted to prevent the party or his agent from any attempt to take her from his possession. Judge Kilgour would, I am sure, grant such an injunction immediately.?If our Court was not sitting I would draw the Bill for him: but I could not do it conveniently for some time, & I am sure that Mr Forrest or one of the Gentlemen at the Court house would do it for him ?" If however he cannot get it done otherwise I will do it.?"

        Urania's Mirror, or, A View of the Heavens

      London: Samuel Leigh 1825, 1st Edition. () Very good. 32 hand coloured cards (14 X 20 cm.) depicting the constellations. Each card has perforations of different sizes over the different stars. Glued to the back of each card is a diffusing tissue. The images are in clean bright condition. A few of the diffusing tissues are torn. The cards are housed in a reconstructed box with the original front panel and sides laid down on the edges. The whole is housed in a modern morocco backed, fold over box. Included with the set of cards is a separately published companion volume entitled "A Familiar Treatise on Astronomy, explaining the General Phenomena of the Celestial Bodies; with numberous Graphic Illustrations. By Jehoshaphat Aspin. Written expressly to accompany Urania's Mirror, or A View of the Heavens: ... Second Edition, with considerable augmentations and improvements. London 1825. The book is in the original paper cover boards which have been renewed and have an added new spine. The book is also housed in the fold over box. This wonderful idea for a "Star Atlas" educational tool works by holding the cards up to a light source and the constellations then seem to have been lite up and can be compared to the night sky. The effect is striking indeed. Complete examples in nice condition are scarce even more so with part of the original box included. The title of Aspin's accompanying book suggests the original concept was designed by a Lady who is not identified. Aspin's volume which seems to be as scarce at the set of cards has several folding plates. Also included is an original bill of sale for the book from Henry Sotheran's in 1948..

        The Cabinet Maker's Guide; or, Rules and Instructions in the Art of Varnishing, Dying, Staining, Japanning, Polishing, Lackering, and Beautifying Wood, Ivory, Tortoiseshell & Metal, with Observations on Their Management and Application

      London / Dublin: Printed for Knight and Lacey, Paternoster-Row, and Westley and Tyrrell, 1825. A new edition with considerable additions; including an appendix, containing several valuable tables. Printed paper covered boards. Spine repaired with binder's tape, boards rubbed with a few chips at the edges, a few scuff marks, one affecting the word 'wood' on the front board and one affecting a few letters of the advertisements on the rear board, front endpapers soiled, fly leaf torn and split from gutter, small chips to top edge of a1 and a2 probably from opening roughly, some staining to last page of index and blank, occasional finger soiling, but overall remarkably clean, crisp, and tight, and even scarcer thus as most copies and manuals of this nature usually disintegrated from use. 16mo. Printed by T. C. Hansard. The first known edition of this book was published in 1809, though it was then only 36 pages and the author identified as Peter Weber. A later edition, only slightly expanded, was published in 1818, and the author was identified as Thomas Howard. This new edition was greatly enlarged and published in 1825 (there was also a longer edition published in 1825 by a different publisher). The author is identified in later editions as G. A. Siddons. The edition offered here is the basis for the first American edition by Ansel Phelps published the same year as well as the source of all later editions into the 20th century. Robert Mussey, in his introduction to a reprint of the 1827 American edition, points out that this work contains the first mention of French polishing and of glass-paper (sandpaper). Hundreds of thousands of copies were printed in the fourteen known and over seventy pirated editions. "Students of furniture and finishing history should find this an invaluable source for the interpretation of our antique furniture heritage." Advertisements on back cover. Scarce. OCLC and RLIN show only 5 copies of this edition.
