        Der Eislauf oder das Schrittschuhfahren, ein Taschenbuch für Jung und Alt. Mit Gedichten von Klopstock, Göthe, Herder, Cramer, Krummacher ec. und Kupfern von J. A. Klein.

      Friedr. Campe,, Nürnberg, 1825 - Nürnberg, Friedr. Campe, 1825. Kl.-8°. IV + 180 S. Illustr. OPp. EA. Mit dem gestochenen Frontispiz und 5 gestochenen Tafeln. Hayn-Got VIII, 658. - Stockfleckig, unteres Kapital m. ca. 1 cm Fehlstelle, leichte Gbrsp. Hds. Notiz a. fl. V. - Neben archäologischen Funden zum Eislaufen, begannen vor etwa 800 Jahren in Holland Boten mit Eisenkufen an Holzschuhen über die zugefrorenen Kanäle zu gleiten und überbrachten auf diese Weise eilige Nachrichten an adelige Empfänger. In den folgenden Jahrhunderten entwickelte sich das Schlittschuhlaufen zunächst zum Vergnügen des Adels und später auch zum Volkssport. Mitte des 18. Jahrhunderts wurden in Großbritannien die ersten Schlittschuhvereine gegründet. Während die nordischen Völker ebenso wie die Friesen und Holländer immer gute Schlittschuhläufer blieben, war diese Kunst in Deutschland mehr auf die Jugend beschränkt, bis durch Klopstocks enthusiastische Schilderungen (z.B. in seinen Oden: „Der Eislauf", „Braga", „Die Kunst Thialfs") das Schlittschuhlaufen populärer und zum bevorzugten Wintervergnügen wurde. (Zitat) - Hier eine seltene frühen Ausgaben mit dem entzückend gestalteten Originaleneinband, der Schlittschuhläufer auf einem See zeigt, den Nordwind der Schnee und Wind bringt sowie auf der Rückseite den König Winter. Zusätzlich werden alle zwölf Sternkreiszeichen als Bordüre gezeigt. Deutsch [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Memoir Prepared at the Request of a Committee of the Common Council at the Celebration of the Completion of the New York Canals

      New York: Printed by the Order of the Corporation of New York, 1825 [1826]. 4to., (9 6/8 x 7 6/8 inches). Lithographed title-page to the appendix, engraved frontispiece portrait of Colden and 43 engraved and lithographed plates, with an additional 8 facsimiles of testimonial letters (folding certification for Pilot Charitable Society torn lower right), and including portraits (one after George Catlin) and views (some folding) (some occasionally heavy offsetting and light spotting), 2 large folding hand-colored engraved maps (that of the U.S. opposite page 4 with a short tear crossing the image).

N.Y." at base of spine, edges gilt (extremities lightly worn). Provenance: Presentation binding to Miss Rachel Ann Robertson, and an original silk ribbon and two elaborate engraved tickets for Miss Robertson to the celebration, neatly laid in; Jay T. Snider, Jay T. Snider Collection of Historical Americana, his sale Christie's 21 June 2005, lot 143. THE OPENING OF THE ERIE CANAL A spectacular and elaborate souvenir of the extravagant celebrations surrounding the official completion of the Erie Canal. Derided as "Clinton's Folly" when first proposed by Governor Dewitt Clinton (1769-1828) and voted by the state legislature, the Erie Canal "proved to be the key that unlocked an enormous series of social and economic changes in the young nation...spurred the first great westward movement of American settlers, gave access to the rich land and resources west of the Appalachians and made New York the preeminent commercial city in the United States." The work is one of the first books published in the U.S. to be extensively illustrated by lithography; an appendix pays tribute to "the most useful potentialities of Mr [Alois] Senefelder's great discovery." A few plates unfold to considerable extent, with panoramic views of New York Harbor crowded with shipping, a cross-section of the canal, locks, scenic views andornate fire-company pumpers drawn by horses. It is also distinguished as being the first book with illustrations by George Catlin. Miss Robertson executed the lithographic plate facing p.380 from "The Students of Colombia College," "by a young Lady"; a letter laid in acknowledges her contribution to the celebratory volume. Howes C-562. From the distinguished library of Jay T. Snider..

        Chart of Baja California, Mexico] Carta Esferica de las Costas y Golfo de Californias llamado Mar de Cortes que Comprende desde el Cabo Corrientes hasta el Puerto de S. Diego Construida Por les oficiales de la Marina Espanola. y publicada por orn del Exmo Sr. D. Guadalupe Victoria Primer Presidente de la Republica Mexico Ano de 1825.

      Mexico City [but possibly London: Aaron Arrowsmith] 1825 - Direccíon de Hydrografia (España / Spain). [Chart of Baja California, Mexico] Carta Esferica de las Costas y Golfo de Californias, Copper-engraved sea chart, in Excellent condition, 41 1/4 x 26 1/8 inches. A RARE, BEAUTIFULLY ENGRAVED AND HISTORICALLY IMPORTANT MAP OF BAJA CALIFORNIA, MEXICO. In 1821, Mexico had finally won her independence from Spain, following a decade-long revolutionary war, A few years on, as a good will gesture, the King of Spain gifted a series of sea charts of Mexico to the new republic’s first president, Don Guadalupe Victoria. This large-scale and highly elegant production is one of the official printed issues of the charts from this collection, as indicated by the presence of the seal of the Mexican Navy in the lower left-hand corner. Geographically, it captures the entire peninsula of Baja California, extending as far north as the Presidio of San Diego, and embraces all the shores of the Sea of Cortés, including the coastal regions of Sonora state. It is predicated on the most advanced surveys conducted to date by the Spanish Direccíon de Hydrographia. An enduring mystery concerns the question of where this map was actually printed. While the imprint identifies Mexico City, it has been seriously posited that it was actually printed by Aaron Arrowsmith of London, then the World’s leading mapmaker, a theory supported by the exceptionally high quality of the engraving. One will immediately notice that some stretches of the coastlines have been delineated and sounded in exacting detail while other areas, such as the northern reaches of the Sea of Cortes, take on a far more tenuous form. In this sense, the charts, both visually and epistemologically, present an arresting contrast between the quantifying spirit of Enlightenment science and the still enigmatic and wild nature of this frontier region of Mexico. The composition is further adorned by three magnificent charts of important natural harbors: Puerto del las Guimas (in Sonora), and La Paz and Pichilingue near the southern tip of Baja. This chart is in Excellent condition, there are a few closed tears along the upper-margin not affecting the printed surface, and some very minor creasing in the lower-quarter of the map. An exceptionally strong printing impression on high-quality rag-paper with wide margins, with a crisp and bright appearance as originally issued. References: Barrett, Baja California, no.2543. This description was written for and on behalf of Arader Galleries San Francisco by Alexander Johnson, Ph.D.

        Reveller, the Winner of the Great St. Leger, at Doncaster, 1818

      W. Sheardown and Son, [London] 1825 - This magnificent portrait of Reveller, H. Peirse's celebrated racehorse who won the Great St. Leger Stakes in 1820, is considered one of Herring's most accomplished sporting portraits. Herring is an outstanding and imaginative artist who at an early age showed an aptitude for handling both riding whip and pencil. At a young age, fate took Herring to the Doncaster races where he saw the Duke of Hamilton's horse, William, win the St. Leger. The sight inspired him to attempt the art of animal-painting, in which he subsequently excelled. In addition to being a successful horse painter, Herring made his livelihood as a coachman, and for some time drove the Highflyer coach between London and York. When eventually he retired as a coachman he immediately obtained numerous commissions and was able to devote himself entirely to his art. Herring had no education in art until he definitely set up as an artist, when he worked for a short time in the studio of Abraham Cooper, R.A. He painted an immense number of racing, coaching, and other sporting subjects, many of which were published by the sporting printsellers and the sporting magazines. He was a frequent exhibitor at the Royal Academy and the Society of British Artists; he was elected a member of the latter society in 1841. While in later life he painted a number of subject-pictures, it was as a portrait-painter of racehorses that Herring earned his fame, and no great breeder or owner of racehorses is without some treasured production of Herring's brush. In 1825 The Doncaster Gazette commissioned Herring to paint a series of portraits of the winners of the St. Leger Stakes between 1815 and 1824. Aquatinted by the renowned engraver Thomas Sutherland, the series is considered to be Herring's most accomplished work. The suite, which was comprised of a set of 10 portraits of the winner's and their Jockeys, was first published by W. Sheardown and Sons. The prints proved so popular that they were later republished and expanded by S. & J. Fuller, who published a book including Herring's prints of the St. Leger stakes. This magnificent print of Reveller with his Jockey is a rare example of the early first state of this print published by Sheardown. It is a magnificent rich impression with fresh early colour and superb highlights.

        Du Sacre des Rois de France, et des rapports de cette auguste cérémonie avec la constitution de l'Etat aux différens âges de la monarchie.

      Paris, Adrien Egron 1825 - in-8, XII-493-[3]-CXV pp., demi-veau havane, dos lisse orné de filets dorés, tranches marbrées (reliure moderne). Bel exemplaire. L'année 1825 qui fut celle de l'ultime sacre d'un Roi de France a naturellement vu fleurir toute une littérature autour de cette cérémonie. La plupart des ouvrages se contentent de donner un historique du Sacre ou de reproduire des pièces plus anciennes. Ce traité ne dépare pas dans le genre, mais il se recommande par la reproduction de la Relation du sacre de Louis XIV (pages chiffrées en romain "in fine"), choisie à cause de l'exemplarité liturgique des cérémonies de 1654.

Deux volumes in-8 (134 X 211) basane fauve marbrée, encadrement de roulette dorée sur les plats avec au centre du plat supérieur un grand médaillon décoré de feuillage et rocaille et la mention dorée « Université de France - Collège R[oy]al de Louis Le Grand », dos lisse orné de filets, chainettes, dentelles et fleurons dorés, pièces de titre et de tomaison maroquin vert lierre, tranches jaspées (reliure de l'époque). Tome I : (2) ff. de faux-titre et titre, 436 pages, une carte et deux planches dépliantes ; Tome II : (2) ff. de faux-titre et titre, 447 pages, deux cartes, un plan et deux planches dépliantes.

DEUXIÈME ÉDITION COMPLÈTE illustrée de SEPT PLANCHES GRAVÉES DÉPLIANTES, dont trois cartes (carte de l'Egypte, de la Syrie et carte relative au partage éventuel de la Turquie), un plan et quatre planches d'après Cassas ou Benoist (vue du Sphinx, vue des pyramides de Djizé, vue de la cour carrée du temple du soleil à Balbek et vue des ruines de Palmyre dans le désert de Syrie). Ce titre constitue les tomes II et III des oeuvres complètes de Volney publiées par Parmantier. Il s'agit d'UN DES MEILLEURS OUVRAGES EN FRANÇAIS DE LA LITTÉRATURE DE VOYAGES. Constantin François Chasseboeuf, comte de VOLNEY (1757-1820), philosophe et orientaliste français, est considéré comme le précurseur des ethnologues, anthropologues et sociologues du XXe siècle. Parti pour l'Egypte à la fin de l'année de 1782, et après un séjour de huit mois dans un couvent égyptien pour y apprendre l'arabe, Volney passa trois années à voyager, la plupart du temps à pied, en Syrie et en Egypte, étudiant l'histoire, les institutions politiques, les moeurs et coutumes des habitants. Il passa sept mois au Caire et voyagea en 1785 avec le peintre orientaliste Louis-François CASSAS (1756-1827) en Syrie. Son ouvrage, qui n'est pas à proprement parler une relation de son voyage mais la somme de ses observations, eut un énorme succès. Il constitue le meilleur exposé sur l'Egypte ottomane à la fin du XVIIIe siècle et ses observations exactes et précises servirent par la suite de guide à l'expédition d'Egypte de Bonaparte. (HAGE-CHAHINE, 5096, qui donne la date de 1826 pour cette édition - GAY, 2275 - LAZARD, 397). BEL EXEMPLAIRE en reliure décorée aux ARMES du Collège Royal LOUIS LE GRAND. PLEASANT COPY.

        A NEW GENERAL ATLAS, COMPRISING A COMPLETE SET OF MAPS, REPRESENTING THE GRAND DIVISIONS OF THE GLOBE.COMPILED FROM THE BEST AUTHORITIES, AND CORRECTED BY THE MOST RECENT DISCOVERIES.

      Philadelphia: Anthony Finley, 1825. - Engraved title, engraved index leaf, fifty-eight handcolored engraved maps, two handcolored engraved comparative charts of mountains and rivers. Imperial quarto. Expertly bound to style in red straight- grained morocco, incorporating original marbled paper- covered boards, original orange- toned engraved title label on upper cover, the flat spine gilt in six compartments, divided by horizontal fillets, lettered in gilt in the second compartment, Finley's small format letterpress trade label (2 3/4 x 3 1/2 inches) mounted on front free endpaper. In a modern red cloth box, dark red morocco lettering piece. Provenance: pencil signature on front free endpaper. A fine copy of the second edition (after the first and second issues of the previous year), from one of the greatest American map publisher's of the period. A contemporary review of the first edition applies to the present second: "The number of elegant maps and atlases which have come from the press within a short time in the United States, is a most flattering proof of increased attention of the community to the important study of geography. The present work contains sixty maps, about half of which are devoted to the American continent, and the remainder to other parts of the world, chiefly to Europe. The engraving is done almost uniformly with remarkable distinctness and the face of the maps is frequently beautiful, not overloaded with a confusion of useless names" (NORTH AMERICAN REVIEW, July 1824, pp.261-262). The same points which distinguish the first and second issues of the first edition also distinguish the present edition from the first issue. The most obvious are on the engraved index leaf: the Eastern Hemisphere is listed as number 1 in the first issue and number 2 in the second; in the first issue number 11 is Connecticut and number 12 is Rhode Island; in the second issue number 11 is Rhode Island and number 12 is Connecticut. Little is known of Anthony Finley other than his published work, "but he was probably born around 1790. Judging from contributors to his atlases, he apparently moved in the same Philadelphia circles of engravers and compilers as other contemporary publishers" (Ristow, p.268). This edition of Finley's celebrated atlas is quite rare. Not on OCLC. PHILLIPS ATLASES 4314 (another ed). RISTOW, p.268 (ref). RUMSEY, p.109 (another ed).

Some light, scattered tanning, or tan-spotting to some page margins. "Pepys commenced his diary in January of 1660, stopped May 1669 on account of his eyesight. Written in Shelton's system of shorthand which Pepys probably learned as a boy in college. It was first deciphered between 1819 and 1822 by John Smith afterward rector of Baldock, then an undergraduate of St. John's. In 1825 about half of the whole of the transcript was edited by Lord Braybrooke and published as the first edition. Unquestionably one of the world's greatest human documents."

        Tables of Life Contingencies; Containing the Rate of Mortality among the Members of the Equitable Society, Together with a more Extensive Scale of Premiums for Life Assurances, and the Progressive Value of Life Policies

      London - For the Author, Sold by Longman & Co. 1825 - A scarce first edition of anearly nineteenth century tract on life insurance by eminent actuary, Griffith Davies. Griffith Davies, 1788-1855, was an actuary. In 1821 the projectors of the Guardian Assurance Company applied to Davies for advice and assistance when drawing up their constitution, and he was engaged to construct the necessary life tables. Towards the end of 1823 he was appointed the regular and permanent actuary of the Guardian at an annual salary of 150, an appointment which he held for the rest of his life.

" The English Spy, both in text and in illustrations, is sometimes as coarse as ever was Smollet in word or Gillray in drawing, it contains many lively representations of life, high and low, gives much curious information about real people still recongisable under their fictitious names [including Charles Kemble, Macready, Grimaldi, Mme. Vestris, Mathews and Wallack, and also George IV and his mistress] , and preserves many tales of a past age." Further, CBEL notes this work was considered an offshoot of "Life in London," and that Westmacott "appears to have been a blackmailer; but was a spirited and amusing writer." Purportedly, Westmacott received a horsewhipping from Charles Kemble three years after this work was published. ABBEY LIFE 325. TOOLEY 504. Elegantly bound by W.

        A New General Atlas, comprising a complete set of maps, representing the grand divisions of the globe. compiled from the best authorities, and corrected by the most recent discoveries

      Anthony Finley, Philadelphia 1825 - Expertly bound to style in red straight-grained half morocco, incorporating original marbled paper-covered boards, original green-toned engraved title label on upper cover, the flat spine gilt in five compartments, divided by horizontal fillets, lettered in gilt in the second compartment A fine copy of the second edition of this important atlas, from one of the greatest American map publishers of the period. A contemporary review of the first edition applies equally to the present second: "The number of elegant maps and atlases which have come from the press within a short time in the United States, is a most flattering proof of increased attention of the community to the important study of geography. The present work contains sixty maps, about half of which are devoted to the American continent, and the remainder to other parts of the world, chiefly to Europe. The engraving is done almost uniformly with remarkable distinctness and the face of the maps is frequently beautiful, not overloaded with a confusion of useless names" ( North American Review , July 1824, pp.261-262). Little is known of Anthony Finley, other than his published work 'but he was probably born around 1790. Judging from contributors to his atlases, he apparently moved in the same Philadelphia circles of engravers and compilers as other contemporary publishers' (Ristow, p.268). This edition of Finley's celebrated atlas is quite rare. Not on OCLC. Cf. Phillips Atlases 4314 (another ed); cf. Ristow, p.268; cf. Rumsey, p.109 (another ed). (13 3/8 x 10 5/16 inches). Engraved throughout: title, index leaf, 58 hand-coloured, two hand-coloured engraved comparative charts of mountains and rivers. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
