        Signed Manuscript Letter Regarding a Plan for Fighting Fire in Boston.

      Sag Harbor, Long Island, NY: , July 2, 1825. Letter sheets (8" x 12") 3 pages plus integral address leaf. Extensive tape repairs to folds, mostly archival tape, but some regular tape too, which has caused a little browning in areas, long tear obscures writers signature, but partially visible, creased, normal aging and browning, remnant of wax seal; otherwise good or better. The letter is to Boston Mayor Josiah Quincy (1772-1864), a future head of Harvard and served eight years in Congress. It appears after becoming Boston's mayor he sent delegates to New York and Philadelphia to study fire fighting techniques in those cities. The author of this letter read about this mission, and sent Mayor Quincy a lengthy letter on the subject. The probable author is Solon Robinson (1803-1880), although his signature is partially obscured by a tear. However, on the back page, a smudged docketed note identifies him as Solon Robertson or Robinson. Robinson was a writer, and would become a well known Indiana pioneer. In any case, the author would suggest a far more modern system for fighting fires, than the existing practice of engines carrying water to fires, which would become useless when the water ran out. he proposed putting lead aqueduct pipes "laid deep underground and leading to every part of the city." While her does not use the term fire hydrants, the water would be accessed from locked iron covers that would serve that function. ABN.

        George Washington de Lafayette (1779-1849) fils ainé de Lafayette, officier et homme poitique. Lettre autographe signée à bord du bateau à vapeur le Natchez sur le fleuve Mississipi 24 avril 1825 et Louisville 10 mai (1825), à son ami Larresche.

      1825 - 3 pages et quart in-4. Belle lettre du fils de Lafyette de retour des Etats-Unis avec son père. « Depuis que nous avons quitté la Nouvelle-Orléans il y a neuf jours, nous avons déjà fait à peu près quatre cent lieues en bateau à vapeur sur le Mississipi ; et demain nous arrivons à hauteur de l'embouchure de l'Ohio. Nous avons déjà fait par conséquent la partie la plus considérable et la plus fatigante d'un voyage de 1800 lieues que nous avions en contemplation en partant de Washington City. Mon père a soutenu cette fatigue comme auroit pu le faire un homme de trente ans ; il est vrai qu'on a bien de la force quand on est porté en triomphe par une nation comme celle-ci. Dans cinq mois j'espère que nous serons avec vous, je commence à en avoir bien besoin ». Il rend compte d'une démarche auprès d'un débiteur de son ami et le charge de faire parvenir une lettre à l'ami Saint-Amand. « Que de belles et bonnes choses on voit ici mon respectable ami [.]. Mon Pays, mes amis qui me sont conservés, le souvenir de ceux qui m'ont été enlevés, occupent tout mon coeur en commun avec la reconnoissance envers les grands citoyens de ce pays modèle ». Le 10 mai, bref récit d'un « naufrage de rivière ».

Minimal berieben, sonst tadellos aus dem Nachlaß Gerhard LöwenthalAgathon Jean François Fain (* 11. Januar 1778 in Paris, Frankreich; † 14. September 1837 ebenda) war Baron und Geheimsekretär Napoleons I.Er war sehr früh in den Büros der Nationalversammlung angestellt, 1793 Sekretär des Militärausschusses des Nationalkonvents und 1796 Divisionschef der Archive sowie bald darauf Staatssekretär, kam 1806 als Archivsekretär in das geheime Kabinett des Kaisers, wurde 1807 Requetenmeister, 1809 zum Baron und Anfang 1813 zum Geheimsekretär des Kaisers ernannt. Diesen begleitete er auf allen seinen Zügen bis zur Abdankung in Fontainebleau, wo er die Abdikationsakte entwarf. Die Restauration raubte ihm seine Stelle als Vorsteher des französischen Archivs, doch trat er nach Napoleons Rückkehr wieder in seine frühere Stellung. Nach der zweiten Restauration ohne Anstellung, wurde er erst 1830 erster Kabinettssekretär Ludwig Philipps, 1832 Generalintendant der Zivilliste, Staatsrat und Großoffizier der Ehrenlegion, 1834 Deputierter. Er starb am 14. September 1837. Napoleon Bonaparte, als Kaiser Napoleon I. (französisch Napoléon Bonaparte oder Napoléon Ier; * 15. August 1769 in Ajaccio auf Korsika als Napoleone Buonaparte[1]; † 5. Mai 1821 in Longwood House auf St. Helena im Südatlantik), war ein französischer General, Staatsmann und Kaiser.Aus korsischer Familie stammend, stieg Bonaparte während der Französischen Revolution in der Armee auf. Er erwies sich als ein militärisches Talent ersten Ranges. Vor allem die Feldzüge in Italien und in Ägypten machten ihn populär und zu einem politischen Hoffnungsträger. Dies ermöglichte ihm, durch den Staatsstreich des 18. Brumaire VIII (9. November 1799) die Macht in Frankreich zu übernehmen. Zunächst von 1799 bis 1804 als Erster Konsul der Französischen Republik und anschließend bis 1814 als Kaiser der Franzosen stand er einem halbdiktatorischen Regime mit plebiszitären Elementen vor.Durch verschiedene Reformen...

        View of the Hebrews or the tribes of Israel in America

THE PRESENT STATE OF JUDAH AND ISRAEL.. CHAP. IV. AN ADDRESS OF THE PROPHET ISAIAH TO THE UNITED STATES RELATIVE TO THEIR RESTORATION. SECOND EDITION, IMPROVED AND ENLARGED.By Ethan Smith, PASTOR OF A CHURCH IN POULTNEY ( VT. )---------------------------------------------------This is the more significant 2nd edition with more striking Mormon parallel content. Condition: Very Good. Complete, solid, impressive condition (as reflected in photos) with a very minimum of bumped corners and only a single endpaper(s) page (last one in book) with a 1" of top strip gone (see photo)."View of the Hebrews is an 1823 [note: this item is the 1825 edition] book written by Ethan Smith, a United States Congregationalist minister, who argued that Native Americans were descended from the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel. This was a relatively common view during the early nineteenth century, as most Europeans and Americans had a view of history as biblical.[1] Numerous commentators on Mormon history, from LDS Church general authority B. H. Roberts to Fawn M. Brodie, biographer of Joseph Smith, have noted similarities in the content of View of the Hebrews and the Book of Mormon, which was first published in 1830, seven years after Ethan Smith's book".

        Analecta Arabica.

      Leipzig: Johan Ambrosius Barth, 1825-8 - Octavo (222 × 150 mm). Rebound to style in half sheep, marbled boards, plain spine, 5 compartments formed by triple gilt fillet, red morocco label in the second. Narrow worm-track to the outer margin of the first four leaves, skilfully repaired, occasional light browning to text block, largely marginal. A very good copy. Highly elaborate Arabic titles to parts II and III in red and black, decoration built up of typographic elements, Arabic text within red panel, each part of the Latin text with separate series and section titles. First and only Arabic and Latin text edition of three interesting and varied Arabic manuscripts. Each has prefatory material in Latin and the first two parts also have an extensive Arabic–Latin glossary. The three parts are: "Institutiones juris Mohammedani circa bellum contra eos qui ab islamo sunt alieni. E duobus al-Codurii codicibus", which presents a selection from the Mukhtasar of al-Quduri, a legal epitome of composed 973–1037 by a leading Sunni fakih, jurist, of the Hanafi school, extracts discussing the legal ramifications of Islamic war against infidels; "Zohairi Carmen al-moallakah appellatum. Cum scholiis Zuzenii integris et Nachasi selectis e codicibus manuscriptis" offers a translation with scholia of the Moallaka of Ka'b ibn Zuhair, pre-Islamic poet; and "Syria descripta a Scherifo el-Edrisio et Khalil ben-Schahin Dhaheri. E codicibus Bodleianis" an extract from al-Idrisi's universal geography of those parts discussing Syria. Rosenmüller (1768–1835), the son of an evangelical theologian, became a professor at the University of Leipzig, firstly in Arabic, 1796, and subsequently in oriental languages from 1813. A pioneering effort to make the texts of important Arabic manuscripts available to scholars and to open them to a wider readership with Latin translations and scholarly notes.

        LIONEL LINCOLN; or, The Leaguer of Boston

      1825. [unopened, in original boards] In Two Volumes. By the Author of The Pioneers, Pilot, &c. New-York: Published by Charles Wiley | D. Fanshaw, Printer, 1825 [1824 in Vol II]. Original drab paper-covered boards with printed spine labels. First Edition of this "Legend of the Thirteen Republics" (per the fly-titles). This was Cooper's fifth book, following PRECAUTION (1820), THE SPY (1821), THE PIONEERS (1823) and THE PILOT (1824). After this Cooper decided that he would launch a series of thirteen novels of historical fiction, one for each of the original colonies -- beginning here with Massachusetts. Set during the Revolutionary War, Lionel Lincoln was a Boston-born member of a British noble family -- who accordingly faced conflicts and split loyalties during the War. Neither Cooper nor the public thought much of this novel, so he abandoned the project -- and with his next novel, would hit a home run (get it? -- Cooperstown?) with THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS (1826).~LIONEL LINCOLN first came out in two volumes in New York, as here, on February 5, 1825; later in February it was published in three volumes by John Miller in London. As Blanck points out, it is curious how significantly the two title pages differ from each other: first and foremost, Vol I is dated 1825 and Vol II is dated 1824; but also, "In Two Volumes" appears in Vol I only, there is no "The" before "Pioneers" in Vol II, and "Vol I" and "Vol II" are in very different fonts.~As with all copies, page 96 in Vol II is mispaginated "56"; at the bottom of page 121 of the same volume, "opinion" and the signature mark "11" are here properly printed (indicating that this was one of the earlier copies in the print run, but meaning nothing as to which copies actually reached the public first).~This set is still, remarkably, in the publisher's original boards-and-label binding -- a fragile binding that was meant to be temporary, until the buyer arranged something more permanent (half-leather) with a bookbinder. The leaves in these particular volumes not only are uncut but are still unopened. Condition is very good-plus -- both volumes have a little wear at the spine ends, and Vol II has some string-indents in the edges of its front board. This condition is about as advantageous as is possible for this pair of volumes in original binding. Blanck 3832; Spiller & Blackburn 6.

        Amsterdam, Kalverstraat, Munt - naar Cornelis de Kruyf, 1825.

      DE KALVERSTRAAT, HET ELYSIUM VAN ONZE FLANEURS EN ONZE GRISETTES ?Vue D?Amsterdam no 22. De Kalverstraat, van den Heiligeweg naar de Munt.? Ets met aquatint vervaardigd door A. Lutz, naar een tekening van Cornelis de Kruyf, 1825 uitgegeven door Frans Buffa & Zn. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (incl. tekst): 20,5 x 13,7 cm.We zien de Kalverstraat vanaf de kruising met de Heiligeweg naar de Munttoren. Aan de linkerzijde zit tegenwoordig La Place en de (inmiddels gesloten) V&D, aan de rechterzijde de Kalvertoren, America Today en Marks & Spencer.De Kalverstraat was in het verleden ?de slagader van het groote lichaam, dat men Amsterdam noemt. Het Elysium van onze flaneurs en onze grisettes [vrouwelijke Bohemiens], de theatervoorstelling van weelde, van glasblazerijen, van pracht en bankroeten [door het teveel geld aan uitgeven winkelen]?.Wijkmeester Willem Meijer vertelde over de vroeg 19de-eeuwse Kalverstraat: Boekwinkels zijn er in alle vakken en talen; uitnemende Prentverzamelingen, waaronder die der heren Buffa, Josi en vooral den heer Maaskamp uitmunten; zilver- en goudwerk van de zuiverste en smaakvolste bewerking; porcelein van de beste soort, zoo wel van inlandsche als uitheemsche fabrieken; pendules, rijk in vinding en kostbare versierselen; kleeden van den jongsten smaak voor beide seksen, en huishoudelijke tentoonstellingen, die het gehuwde paar in de gelegenheid stellen, om hunnen woning, binnen een enkel uur met al het nodige of tot overtollig sieraard begeerde huisraad te stoffeeren. Ziedaar den omvang van een koopvertier, die voor de beste straten van Londen en Parijs nauwelijks behoeft te zwichten, en die met eigen oogen moet aanschouwd worden, om al den levendigen indruk daarvan te gevoelen.En over de caf?s in die tijd: ?In de weekdagen begeven de aanzienlijken zich des morgens en ook des avonds naar de Koffijhuizen en de Soci?teiten. Koffijhuizen waren er voorheen wel twee en twintig in Amsterdam, waarvan acht in de Kalverstraat, maar zommige van deze zijn door tijdsomstandigheden verkogt en tot Winkels ingericht. Koffijhuijzen dienen meest tot bijeenkomsten voor het aangaan der Beurs en in de Winteravonden, of tot het speelen van Billardpartijen.Bij veel gelegenheden bleek de Kalverstraat toen het brandpunt van de grootstedelijke drukte te zijn: Op Oudejaarsavond, als in de koffiehuizen de bezoekers, onder het genot van een glaasje punch, de klokslag van twaalven afwachten en het afgelopen jaar met solemnele schoten plechtig uitgeleide wordt gedaan; op Nieuwjaardag als as- en vuilniskarlieden, nachtwachten, krantenbezorgers enz. enz., kortom de meest uiteenlopende categori?n van dienstvaardigen fooien verzamelen, in ruil voor een lang nieuwjaarsgedicht of een verslag van het afgelopen jaar op rijm; bij gelegenheid van de Stille Omgang, en ook als de Koning, ?de leeuw van Holland, de ridderlijke Willem II?, zijn jaarlijks bezoek aan de hoofdstad brengt. Voor bijna elke stoep zijn dan enige ruwe planken geslagen, ter bescherming van de winkelruiten tegen het gedrang. Op de pothuizen [aanbouw naast een huis] werden staanplaatsen verhuurd, tegen betaling van 25 cent p.p. en verderop ziet men, tegen de tijd dat de koning verwacht wordt, voor halfopgeschoven ramen dames bloothoofds [parbleu!] zitten en daarachter heren die lange pijpen roken. Is het kermis, dan dringen de opgeschikte dienstmeisjes uit alle zijstraten door de Kalverstraat naar het brandpunt van het vermaak: de Botermarkt [Rembrandtplein].In de Kalverstraat is er bij feestelijke gelegenheden ook verlichting, door middel van sterren en erepoorten van vetglaasjes om de deuren. De koek- en banketbakkers illumineren bovendien op Sint Nicolaasavond.Prijs: ?650,-.

        Wieland Sammtliche Werke 1825 beautiful green 52 vol book set leather 50+ plates

      1825 - Sammtliche Werke Complete 52-volume set. By Christoph Martin Wieland Issued Leipzig, 1825 by Georg Joachim Goschen. Each volume c. 250-300 pp. All with 1 engraved frontis= 52 plates throughout. Full contemporary green boards, smooth spines with gilt decoration, devices & black gilt leather labels, owner's name stamped in gilt on red oval morocco labels to front boards, boards outlined in gilt patterns, wonderful engraved frontispieces throughout. The 50+ engraved near miniature frontispieces are often charming, well executed, richly printed, and are all signed in the plate by the engraver. Attractive, rare, monumental huge set of charming, early-19th century bindings which are utterly unique in shelf appearance. Set shows clear signs of usage, rubbing, small scuffing, light soiling and age, but as the pictures show, still a noble and very handsome looking old set of leather bound books. Textblocks square, tight, clean-moderately toned with some light scattered foxing throughout, which is most often heaviest on the engraved plates. Worthy of any library shelf or museum. One of the primary virtues of this set is that it's unique. A one of a kind set of antique bindings, this is the only set which survives today which looks like this, exhibiting this particular patina of time. The set casts off a visual aura utterly unlike books made today and no other set which survives today looks like this one. If you put this set in a bookcase in an old house, it will look like it's been sitting there for a long time. Sets like this display character. Slight wear to an old object gives it a modern appeal which we believe exceeds the same item in untouched almost perfect condition. Each volume measures c. 4" W x 5" H. Measures c. 52" W across shelf. (4' 4")[A6681] A picture is worth a thousand words. Please examine pictures closely, as what you see pictured is what we will send you. [note: we grade conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws.] Set is priced at $20 a volume. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        American ornithology; or, the natural history of birds inhabiting the United States, not given by Wilson

      Philadelphia: Carey, Lea & Carey, 1825. FIRST EDITION. With 27 hand-coloured engraved plates, from drawings by Titian Ramsay Peale, A. Rider, and one partially by Audubon (pl. 10). Half-red morocco and marbled boards, decorated in gilt, expertly re-backed and re-cornered; some faint offsetting from plates (mainly to tissue-guards), some browning to Volumes II and III, scattered foxing to last three volumes (heavy at times in vol. III). A beautiful uncut copy with fresh, bright plates, from the library of Gardiner Greene and Esther Lathrop Hammond, with their engraved bookplate. First edition, complete with all four volumes. Over forty-five North American birds are described, with engravings by Alexander Lawson after the original illustrations of Rider and Peale, the appointed naturalist to the Philadelphia Museum who collected for Bonaparte between 1824-25. Lawson, who also provided the plates for Wilson's work, engraved these plates "with the birds always before him," the colours dictated by Rider. The first two volumes are principally devoted to the description of land birds of western and extreme southern territories, drawing on expedition accounts into the Rockies, and introduces at least sixteen new species. The third volume contains both land and water birds, the descriptions based largely on Peale's gleanings in Florida. Of particular interest is the fine description of the indigenous Wild Turkey (meleagris oculata), complete with translations in 26 American Indian languages.Bonaparte (1803-57), Prince of Canino and Musignano and nephew of Napoleon, is notable as both a revolutionary republican politician and a keen ornithologist. He moved from Europe after his marriage, and did his most important studies of avifauna while in Philadelphia, deciding to continue Wilson's monumental work only after he had discerned that nobody else would be willing to undertake such an enormous task. Wilson's Ornithology (9 volumes, 1808-14) was the first American work to use coloured plates to convey scientific information. Following a tumultuous political life in exile while back in Europe, Bonaparte returned to his zoological studies and in 1854 was appointed Director of the Jardin des Plantes of Paris.

        Oração gratulatoria recitada na Santa Sé Cathedral do Porto, em 27 de Novembro de 1825 . em acção de graças por occasião da Carta de Lei, em que S.M.F. se dignou assumir o titulo de Imperador .

      Porto, Imprensa do Gandra, 1825. - 4°, contemporary rear marbled wrapper (faded, front wrapper gone). Elaborate woodcut on title page: see below. Second leaf (dedication to D. João VI) is set in elaborate gothic type. Typographical mustaches on p. 5. Text in fine condition. 16 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this oration celebrating D. João VI's acceptance of the title of Emperor of Brazil. D. João VI ruled as prince regent for D. Maria I, 1799-1816, as king of Portugal, Brazil, and the Algarve 1816-1822, and king of Portugal and de jure emperor of Brazil, 1822-25. Macedo contrasts the bloody rebellions in Latin America,"desde o Isthmo de Panamá, até ao Cabo de Horne, "with events in Brazil, where D. João's prudence and moderation have tempered events: "A prudente expectativa, e moderação de El-Rei com o Brazil acalma insensivelmente o brutal, e desmoralisado furor, que grassava nas Provincias do Norte." "A ephémera Republica do Equador" is mentioned (pp. 12-16).The elaborate woodcut on the title page shows a castle with two tall towers, between which are the Madonna and Child. At their feet, above an arch, are the words "Civitas Virginis." On the left-hand tower are the imperial arms of Brazil; a mailed arm rises above them, waving a flag with the Brazilian arms. On the right-hand tower are the royal arms of Portugal; a mailed arm rises above them, brandishing a sword twined with laurels.Ignacio José de Macedo (1774-1834), a native of Porto, moved to Brazil at age 8 and lived there for the next 40 years. For many years he was a magistrate in Bahia (examinador synodal and censor regio); he also published a periodical, A Idade de Ouro. According to the title page, he was pregador da Imperial Capella do Carmo in Rio de Janeiro and professor de Filosofia Racional e Moral in Bahia. In 1823, after Bahia proclaimed its independence, Macedo returned to Portugal. There he became well known as the editor of O Velho Liberal do Douro, which supported the new Constitution and liberal principles. In 1829 he was imprisoned. From the Duque de Bragança's return until Macedo's death, he again published O Velho Liberal. He published several funeral orations, including two for D. João VI, and several more general works such as Influencia da religião sobre a politica do Estado, Lisbon, 1826, and Considerações sobre as causas da elevação e decadencia da Monarchia Portugueza, Lisbon, 1834.*** Innocêncio X, 53; on the author, see also III, 209-10.

Also a Description of the Five-Feet Equatorial Instrument Employed in the Observations." 4to. Double stars, essentially discovered by William Herschel were of great interest throughout the nineteenth century - new ones being found and postition measurements made more precise with each improvement in telescope construction. South, working with John Herschel during the years 1821-1823, re-observed the double stars charted originally by William Herschel, mainly for the purpose of detecting position changes. Their observations helped verify the newly recognized orbital motion of these neighboring stars. Their resulting catalog of 380 double stars, presented to the Royal Society in 1834, earned them the gold medal of the Astronomical Society and the grand prize of the Institute France.
