        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). Williams, Michael Faraday, p. 108.

His influence at Cambridge spread into the nineteenth century when his A View of the Evidences of Christianity was required reading for Cambridge.Paley's works had profound influence on fellow Christ's College graduate Charles Darwin, who originally studiedtheology before switching to geology. Today Paley's portrait hangs alongside that of Darwin at Christ's College.

      [Port-au-Prince? ca. 1825].. Watercolor, 6 1/2 x 5 inches. Matted and framed to 10 x 8 inches. A few faint spots of foxing. Colors bright and fresh. Near fine. A handsome watercolor of Haitian general and president Jean-Pierre Boyer (1776-1850), who reigned over Haiti from 1818 to 1843. Boyer, a free mulatto, was born in Port-au-Prince but educated in France. One of the leaders of the Haitian Revolution, he fled to France when Toussaint's uprising turned against the mulattoes as well as the whites, returning with LeClerc in 1802. After independence, Haiti split into two states, north and south, and Boyer served as the right-hand of Alexandre Petion, who established himself as president of the southern state. Boyer was appointed by Petion to be his successor, in 1818, while Henri Christophe still ruled in the north. After Christophe committed suicide in 1820, and his young son was killed ten days later, Boyer succeeded in reunifying the two states of Haiti. In late 1821 Santo Domingo became independent from Spain, and Boyer swiftly moved to invade, uniting the island under his rule by early 1822. In 1825, after agreeing to an indemnity, he obtained official French recognition of the country for the first time since the revolution. At first Boyer's rule looked like a new start for the war-ravaged country, and many free blacks from the United States considered settling there. But Boyer preferred to maintain a semi-feudal government, and little was done to improve the situation. He stayed solidly in power until an earthquake was followed by an insurrection in 1843. Santo Domingo rebelled and won its independence back in 1844. He fought back for over a year before fleeing first to Jamaica in 1845, and then to France, where he died in 1850. He succeeded in lasting as President longer than any other Haitian ruler, just edging out "Papa Doc" Duvalier for the honor. In this portrait, which shows Boyer in three-quarter profile facing left, he is dressed in his full regalia as general and president, wearing a blue military coat trimmed in gold braid and a white cape with a red lining. This likeness closely resembles an engraving by Raban, dated 1825, which is probably based on it. He is at the height of his achievements, having just solidified his power by obtaining recognition from France. The portrait is signed with the initial "B.C." written in reverse at the bottom corner. An outstanding image of Haiti's fourth president.

Fore-edge & lower edge untrimmed.. 19th C red half morocco-style sheep with marbled boards; spine with 5 raised bands and titled in gilt. TEG. Marbled eps.. Trifling bit of rubbing to extremities & boards... the usual light. smattering of foxing. A VG+ copy.. "The Magic Ring (Der Zauberring, 1813)... has as its central motif a magic ring that conveys worldly power. The ring is eventually destroyed by being cast into the flames. The story is complex, with a wealth of adventures, magical and otherwise, around the medieval world and many fine supernatural ideas, including a magic garden like Kundry's in Wagner's Parsifal as well as magic mirrors. The Magic Ring seems to be the ultimate source for the idea behind Wagner's RING Cycle and [perhaps] Tolkien's work." Quite uncommon; only one copy to come to auction in the last 25+ years [1993]. Sullivan, who we quote above from his discussion of the work in The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, concludes with this edition is "impossible to find."

        Historiarum libri IX. Cum brevi annotatione Aug. Mathiae & Henr. Apetzii.

      Teubner 1825 - Leipzig, Teubner, 1825-1826. 2 vol. petits in 8 de VIII-306pp., VI-296pp., reliures en demi chagrin havane à coins de l'époque, plats en papier beige uniforme, dos finement et richement décorés de résilles dorées contenant de petites fleurs en rosace dorées, surlignées et soulignées de frises dorées, pièces de titre de maroquin bordeaux surlignées et soulignées de frises dorées, pièces de tomaison de maroquin bleu turquoise surliguées et soulignées de frises dorées, pieces d’appartenance vertes surlignées et dorées à la queue de chaque dos, titre doré, rousseurs éparses, tranches vertes, notes d‘August Matthiae et de Henrich Apetzii, texte en grec, bel exemplaire. 600 € L'Oeuvre d'Hérodote, considéré comme le pére de l'Histoire, est le récit historique de la grande invasion de la Grèce par les perses entre 490 et 479 avant Jésus Christ. Mais les deux tiers de l'ouvrage sont dédiés à l'histoire propre des deux protagonistes, touchant même certains pays frontaliers et décrivant ces nations et leurs peuples dans les moindres détails. Nous ne savons pas avec précision où, quand et comment ces histoires furent écrites. Sans doute sont-elles le fruit du recueil de lectures ou de récits qu'Hérodote donna sur plusieurs années dans certaines villes grecques ou à Athènes durant l'apogée impériale de cette dernière. Le travail d'Hérodote ouvra un nouveau champ d'investigation intellectuel et culturel, méconnu jusqu'alors et qui est parvenu et que nous connaissons aujourd’hui sous le nom d'Histoire. Le travail de l'auteur constitue une immense carte du monde humain de l'époque, passé et contemporain. Parvenu à démontrer les liens entre les différents acteurs et par voie de conséquence en reliant entres eux les différrentes actions et les différents faits, il parvint à expliquer à la fois les enchevêtrements de circonstances et une enfilade d’événements a priori chaotiques en leur donnant un sens, une logique. Ses prédécesseurs étaient des chroniqueurs, en recoupant les informations et en vérifiant les sources, Hérodote devint le premier à réellement informer le lecteur, ainsi a travers la description de cette guerre contre les perses, il parvint a prouver l'interaction et Ia continuité entre les "divers moments et phases historiques''. Quelle fut l'ampleur d'Hérodote?; son succès en tant que premier historien est difficile à appréhender, néanmoins précisément parce que le genre qu'il inventa devint si important pour notre propre facon de penser et d'analyser le monde, qu'il est difficile d'imaginer que cette invention n'ait pu exister et que l'on aurait que l‘on pourrait vivre sans.

        Kentucky and Tennessee ... Improved to 1825

      Philadelphia: H. S. Tanner, 1825. Copper-engraving with full period color. 23 3/8 x 30 11/16 inches. 23 7/8 x 30 3/4 inches. Tanner's 1825 map of Kentucky and Tennessee. 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 colored. Because of the great expense involved in the production and publication, the atlas was published in five parts between 1819 and 1823. This map was first published in 1823 in the fifth part of Henry Tanner's A New American Atlas under the title "Kentucky, Tennessee and part of Illinois." In this second issue, from the 1825 edition of the atlas, Illinois has been dropped from the title and the map has been augmented by the addition of new counties (particularly in southwestern Tennessee) and the additions of various cities and roads.

Reliure romantique de l'époque, plein veau noir maroquiné, plats ornés en doré d'une frise florale d'encadrement, coupes avec roulette dorée, dos titré et orné de grands fers dorés. +++++++ Rare et jolie édition anglaise dans un petit format proche du minuscule et dans une reliure romantique, de cet ouvrage de référence comprenant les textes de Izaak Walton (1593-1683) et Charles Cotton (1630-1685) : The Complete Angler, or the Contemplative Man’s Recreation (en français Le Parfait Pêcheur à la ligne). C'est un traité écrit pendant 10 ans et publié en 1653, puis complété par Charles Cotton en 1676. C'est au moment de la retraite qu'Isaac Walton quitte définitivement Londres pour se retirer dans le Staffordshire, et se consacrer uniquement à l'écriture et à la pêche. C'est au cours de ses parties de pêche sur la Dove qu'il rencontre Charles Cotton, dont il devient inséparable. Si Charles Cotton est considéré comme le père de la pêche à la mouche moderne, Izaac Walton est celui qui lui en a donné sa dimension philosophique. L’oeuvre aborde le thème de la pêche à la ligne sous la forme d’un dialogue entre plusieurs personnages, et se présente comme une succession de conseils ou d’astuces visant à assurer au lecteur la meilleure pêche possible. Le dialogue, qui a lieu au bord de la Lee River près de Londres, oppose au départ Piscator, Auceps et Venator, prenant respectivement le parti de la pêche, de la fauconnerie et de la chasse. La confrontation verbale tourne rapidement au bénéfice du pêcheur, qui parvient à réduire le fauconnier au silence et même à convaincre le chasseur de se mettre à la pêche. Au-delà des multiples conseils touchant les rivières les plus poissonneuses, les qualités respectives des mouches artificielles ou les différentes espèces de poissons, l’ouvrage est avant tout resté célèbre en raison de son atmosphère très particulière, faite de sérénité et de communion spirituelle avec la nature. C'est une approche élitiste qui associe réflexion philosophique, religiosité, sentiment d'appartenace à la Nature et environnementalisme. Le traité offre par ailleurs un fort aspect religieux de par ses multiples références à la divine Providence, et constitue un excellent portrait de l’Angleterre rurale de l’époque pour les historiens – Reliure en bon état, 2/4 coins et coiffes avec de très légers frottements, dorures lumineuses et intérieur particulièrement frais, bel exemplaire..

The first performance took place on October 3, 1822, with Beethoven leading the orchestra from the piano. & & "That Beethoven should have conceived music so solemn and so little popular for the opening ceremony of a theatre is yet another proof of how deeply ingrained in him were the principles of the eighteenth-century Enlightenment. The very use of the word 'Weihe' - consecration - suggests that for him the theatre was not so much a place of entertainment as an institution for the moral education of the public. We do not meet this attitude again until Wagner's Bühnenweihfestpiel, Parsifal." Cooper: Beethoven The Last Decade 1817-1827, p. 348.

        Lake Patterson, near Pattersons Plain Hunters River. New South Wales

      London,: Circa, 1825.. Hand-coloured aquatint, 170 x 265 mm. Framed. Letterpress verso. Lycett arrived in Sydney as a convict in 1814, by 1821 he had won a full pardon and in 1822 left for England where he began work on his celebrated Views in Australia or New South Wales, & Van Dieman's Land ... When published the views met with immediate success. Lycett was a very significant artist of this period in Australia and his Views in Australia was an important early visualization of Macquarie's Australia and also of the Aboriginal people of New South Wales. The views are of remarkable importance as they provide one of the first glimpses of the colony that can be recognised as obviously Australian.Lycett's style tended to be romantic with the depiction of park-like landscapes which gives the appearance of rural harmony. Lycett's work would have contributed to the new interest in the colony for trade and emigration.

        The Temple of Jupiter Olympus and the Acropolis of Athens "Le Temple de Jupiter Olympien et l'Acropolis d'Athens

      Greece: Paris "Imprimerie de Dondey-Dupré, Rue St Louis, No 46, Au Marais." 1825-37. Coloured lithograph of the Olympieion with the Acropolis from Louis Dupré's " Voyage â Athènes et â Constantinople...". Original hand colour; verso blank; blind stamp of Dupré as issued. The view shows the Temple of Olympian Zeus, with the Acropolis in the background; from this angle it is possible to see part of the town , the Plaka district, on the Acropolis slopes. Interestingly Dupré illustrates a gathering of Turks beside the temple seemingly being addressed by an Imam, suggesting that the space was used as an open air mosque. Bright & clean; slight crease causing lightening of the colour of the sky in the middle of the view. Louis Dupré [1789-1837]. A pupil of Jacques-Louis David in Paris, Louis Dupré became resident in Rome and was appointed official painter to the prince Jerome Bonaparte, in 1811. In 1819 he traveled to Greece. He was received by the French consul Fauvel in Athens and introduced into Greek society allowing him to make his paintings of important personalities of the time, both in Athens and in Joannina where he portayed Ali Pascha, his family and attendants. He continued to Thessaly and from there he sailed to Constantinople, where he made the acquaintance of Prince Michael Soutzo of Moldavia with whom he returned to Italy via Romania. His work " Voyage â Athènes et â Constantinople" was published in 10 livraisons, in Paris in 1825 through to 1837, consisting of 40 lithographs: portraits, costumes and views of Athenian antiquities. [Colnaghi of London pirated 2 of the portraits of Ali Pascha and published them before Dupré.] The work became synonymous with the Greek War of Independence. The image of Mitropolos, holding the Greek standard symbolises the Greek victory.
