[HOGG, THOMAS JEFFERSON].
London: Printed for T. Hookham, 1825. First edition, second issue with the title-page a cancel, replacing the original 1813 title-page and preface. 12mo, contemporary brown half cloth, marbled paper boards, gilt decorations. The youthful and rare first novel by friend, comrade, acolyte, and later memorialist of the Romantics, Thomas Jefferson Hogg (1792-1862). Prince Alexy is an animated tale that shows the influence of Ann Radcliffe, William Godwin, William Beckford and Voltaire, among others, in its philosophical, picaresque narrative about the life of a Russian prince, who travels the world seeking truth about love, education and governance. The novel also shows the influence of Shelley, who was very approving of the story in a review published in 1814 in the Critical Review, which became one of his best-known pieces of literary criticism: "[Hogg's] great though indisciplinable energies and fervid rapidity of conception embodies scenes and situations, and of passions affording inexhaustible food for wonder and delight. The interest is deep and irresistible. A moral enchanter seems to have conjured up the shapes of all that is beautiful and strange to suspend the faculties in fascination and astonishment." The relationship between Jefferson Hogg and Shelley, which began when they were students at Oxford, has been well documented. Edges a little worn; some foxing; cancel-title just starting, but sound; very good copy.

[ILE BOURBON]
(titre au dos de la reliure). Manuscrit. S.l.n.d., [vers 1825], 2 parties en 1 volume petit in-folio (31,2 x 20,5 cm) comprenant 2 cahiers numérotés 3 et 4 pour la première partie et 7 ff. numérotés 7 à 12 et 14, 2 ff.n.ch. pour la seconde, soit 26 pp. manuscrites au total, avec ratures et corrections, cartonnage moderne brun-rouge, pièce de titre de chagrin noir . Fragment d'un manuscrit plus important consacré à l'esclavage sur l'île Bourbon (La Réunion). Probablement destiné à une publication, il a été rédigé par un habitant de l'île ayant une bonne connaissance des mécanismes de la traite et de la pratique de l'esclavage. À cette époque, la traite des Noirs, interdite depuis 1817 par une ordonnance royale, continuait d'exister dans les colonies françaises; elle ne sera véritablement réprimée qu'à partir de la fin des années 1820. La première partie (8 pp.) traite du marronnage des esclaves, des punitions, des travaux imposés aux femmes enceintes ou qui viennent d'accoucher, de l'appartenance des enfants au maître de la mère, du coût d'un esclave né sur place par rapport à celui d'un esclave importé dans la colonie, du système d'imposition des planteurs basé sur les "têtes d'esclaves", du mariage entre les esclaves, pratiquement impossible tant qu'ils ne seront pas émancipés, le mari et la femme appartenant le plus souvent à deux maîtres différents, d'une prime que le gouvernement pourrait attribuer aux propriétaires qui élèveraient le plus d'enfants, de l'affranchissement que l'on pourrait accorder aux femmes ayant mis au moins six enfants au monde, etc. Dans la seco … [Click Below for Full Description]

Zindel, Christ. Siegm. Hg.:
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. Sprache: deutsch. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

HUME David
1825. 8 volumi in-8, pp. VIII, 512; 454; 484; 482; 514; 470; 496;534. Belle e solide legature coeve in mezza pelle nocciola, con titolo e ricchi fregi in oro al dorso.

David Hume (Edimburgo, 1711 - 1776) fu filosofo e storico, una delle figure più importanti dell'illuminismo scozzese. L'opera ebbe subito un notevolissimo successo: Churchill stesso disse che l'interesse per la politica gli era stato dato dalla lettura di Hume. Ottimo esemplare, estremamente fresco.
