        Catalog meiner Insecten-Sammlung.,

      Nürnberg, Selbstverlag, 1826 - VIII, 207 S. 4 kolorierte Kupfertafeln. Dritte wesentlich erweiterte Ausgabe. - Horn-Sch. 21702. Nissen ZBI 4032. - Jakob Sturm (1771 - 1848) war der Sohn eines Nürnberger Kupferstechers. " Als nämlich seinem Vater eine Kupferplatte, die dieser zu einem entomologischen Werke von Pallas zu fertigen hatte, von dem mit der Revision des Werkes betrauten Professor und Geheimrath Schreber als ungeeignet beanstandet wurde, erhielt sie der Sohn, erst 16 Jahre alt, zur Ausführung überwiesen und führte sie, nachdem er die bezüglichen Insecten von dem Entomologen Panzer in natura sich hatte zeigen lassen, so vorzüglich aus, daß die beiden Gelehrten, in Erkennung seines ausgesprochenen Talentes als Naturzeichner, ihn für ihre speciellen Wissenschaften gewannen, Schreber für Botanik, Panzer für Zoologie. Sturm begann nun, sich selbst eine Insectensammlung anzulegen, die allmählich zu einer der größten Privatsammlungen anwuchs. Auf Grund derselben gab er 1791 seine erste Sammlung von Abbildungen heraus, ohne Text, unter dem Titel: "Insecten-Cabinet, nach der Natur gezeichnet und gestochen", wovon 4 Hefte, jedes mit 25 colorirten Kupfertafeln erschienen sind. Bald darauf wurde er auch litterarisch thätig. 1796 ließ er das erste Verzeichniß seiner Insecten-Sammlung drucken, dem infolge des Anwachsens der letzteren 1800 ein zweites, 1826 ein drittes und 1843 ein viertes, jedes Mal vergrößertes, sich anschlossen". (ADB XXXVII, 20). - Kaum gebräunt und stellenw. etw. fleckig. Vorsatz mit kl. hs. Besirtvermerk. Sprache: de Gewicht in Gramm: 500 Erster Theil (mehr nicht erschienen): Käfer.

      London: R Ackermann, 1826 2 volumes. xxxii+442 pages with foldout frontispiece map, tables and 19 plates (one folding); iv+449+[2 ad] pages with foldout frontispiece map one plate. Royal octavo (9 3/4" x 6 1/4" bound in half red leather with gilt lettering to spine, marbled boards and marbled page ends. Translated from the Italian edition, first published in Cesena, 1780-81) by Jose Joaquin de Mora. (Palau 55481; Sabin 13520) First edition into Spanish.Francisco Javier Clavijero was a Novohispano Jesuit teacher, scholar and historian. After the expulsion of the Jesuits from Spanish colonies (1767), he went to Italy, where he wrote a valuable work on the pre-Columbian history and civilizations of Mesoamerica and the central Mexican altiplano.Clavijero?s Historia antigua de México was the most influential history of Mexico since Jose de Acosta?s Historia natural y moral de las Indias in 1590. It was, according to Clavijero, a history of Mexico written by a Mexican. His historical work, written in Italy, offers an amazing combination of Scholastic theology, modern natural history, enlightened history, and a criticism of enlightenment that anticipated Romanticism. Clavijero was one of the most engaged interlocutors of Cornelius De Pauw and Buffon in the "Dispute of the New World". According to his biographer Juan Maneiro, he was already writing his Historia Antigua de México when the Philosophical Investigations by De Pauw came out. An enlightened view of the historical process predominates in his Historia antigua de México. This can be seen in his encyclopedic spirit, as well as in his use of primary sources and the writings of other recognized historians in his only historical work. It is a quite admirable is his view of the historical development of Mexican Indians as a social phenomenon with roots in the pre-Hispanic past, without connecting them to any ancient people from other continents. In the words of José Emílio Pereira, his Historia Antigua de México is an essential piece for the recuperation of the Indian world - particularly the Aztec one - from the triple perspective of Catholicism, classical culture and enlightenment. By opposing certain aspects of European enlightened philosophy Clavijero is offering a Creole enlightenment. Elías Trabuse diagnoses in him an attraction toward the enlightened philosophers and historians in search of a meaning in History, breaking with the antiquarian historians who reduce their works to a compilation of facts. But, differently from them, he did not assume an attitude of neglecting the details. At the same time that Clavijero broke with the schemes of this Spanish historiography, he confronted the bias and preconceptions of the "philosophical history" from the depreciators of the Americas.Condition:Corners bumped and rubbed, rubbing to hinges, early spine tags, inked number stamps to title pages, monor foxing and offsetting. Early book plates to front pastedowns else a very good set.

        Autograph Letter signed, to Hon. Isaac Wayne, Congressman from Pennsylvania and son of the Revolutionary War hero General Anthony Wayne

      Washington, D.C. 1826 - 2 full pages. 1 vols. 4to. Predicting 1828 - a Letter to the Son of "Mad Anthony" Wayne. A superb letter in which the future President discusses candidly the prospects of the candidates in the 1828 Presidential election - John Quincy Adams vs. Andrew Jackson. Buchanan had originally been a supporter of Henry Clay when he first went to Congress, but in the election of 1824, he supported Andrew Jackson. Famously, that election was decided by the House of Representatives when Clay threw his support to John Quincy Adams, thus defeating Jackson, who had won a plurality of the electoral vote. Writing to his fellow Congressman from Pennsylvania, Buchanan observes:"?I think ? that the fate of Mr. [John Quincy] Adams in the next contest is already determined. He cannot be re-elected unless Gen. Jackson should in the mean time die or be rendered unable to discharge the duties of President. We have no reason to apprehend either of these events; as his health is now much better than it has been for several years. Doubt no longer rest upon the course which will be pursued by Virginia, North Carolina & Georgia. New York will without doubt be hostile to the re-election of Mr. Adams; and if it has not yet, like the three States I have mentioned, taken any decided course, it is on account of their local politics. Jackson has nothing to fear from Adams in that State; though it is possible Clinton may give him trouble. "Conjecture is busy upon the subject, who will be the successor of Mr. King? Some think it will be Mr. Webster whilst other say Mr. Brown will be sent to England & Mr Gallatin take his station at Paris. I have no data on which to form an opinion. - The whole course of the administration has proved that every appointment is made either with a view of rewarding past services or of obtaining new friends. Mr. Clay is, between you & myself, the President ?". Fine, in half red morocco drop box

Apart from new discoveries, the voyage of thirty-one months corrected errors in exisiting maritime charts, gathered three hundred geological samples, twelve hundred insects, two hundred and sixty-four birds and quadrupeds as well as botanical specimens, reptiles and fishes. It reported on Pacific languages, costumes, weapons and artefacts. The superb illustrations resulting from these new discoveries are among the finest of nineteenth century voyage art. The plates are as follows:1. Iridée D'Agustine 2. Iridée Étincelante 3. Halyménie Variée 4. Spherocoque Corallin 5. Dawsonie de Durville, Gigartine pied de Grenouille, Gigartine noircheveux 6. Padine de Durville, Padine de Commerson 7. Spartina ciliata 8. Ericahne squarrosa 9. Arundo flexuosa 10. Lophatherum gracile 11. Panicum Urvillianum 12. Gymnotnx compressa 13. Gymnotrix macrostachys 14. Tschaemum Urvillianum 15. Schizée Péicillée 16. Antrophye Plantaginée, Antrophye de Lesson 17. Antrophye de Bory, Antrophye Optuse 18. Grammite Scolopendrine, Toenite Porte-Flèches 19. Polypode à feuilles D'Éléagne, Marginaire Minime 20. Lycopode de Durville 21. Lycopode Flagellaire 22. Polypode Trés-Velu 23. Polypode Toenite 24. Polypode de Brongniart 25. Aspidie Mohrioïde, Parée Fourchante 27. Blechne Grimpante 28. Scolopendre de Durville, Lindsée de Lesson 29. Trichomane Incisé, Trichomane Ailé, Hymenophylle Infortuné.The plates are in the original "livraison" loose printed wrappers. Despite the fact that the plates are almost a consecutive sequence, here - as commonly - the wrappers are used simply to protect the plates, and with only partial correspondence between the plates listed on the wrappers and those inside.

Garrison & Morton 4797: "A classical description of general paralysis. Calmeil's work complements Bayle's earlier delineation of general paralysis. Between the two of them they established the clinical picture of general paralysis of the insane, associating it with chronic inflammation of the brain. This was the first breakthrough in neuro-psychiatric research, and it gave psychiatry the spur to precise and systematic clinical, pathological and statistical innovation on its own terms."

        Manuscript account, "Voyage autour du Monde de la fregate la Thetis", retained by Louis de Freycinet

      Prepared at sea, or on the voyage's return, 1826. 63 pp. manuscript, 305 x 200 mm., stitch-sewn in gathers, closely written in a neat legible hand throughout, Archives de Laage stamp to first page; very good. From Brest to the South China Sea: sending the latest news to Freycinet. A newly discovered unpublished manuscript account by its commander of the first half of the 1824-26 voyage of the Thétis.The voyage's commander Hyacinthe de Bougainville may have prepared this manuscript narrative specifically for his friend and mentor Louis de Freycinet; in any case it made its way into the senior man's possession, then working on his own account of the voyage of the Uranie under his command, the various parts of which were published between 1824 and 1844. Freycinet is well known to have assiduously gathered manuscripts of all kinds to do with voyages and their progress, associated technologies and science. The inclusion of this substantial account among the Freycinet papers once in the family chateau is therefore hardly surprising, given both Freycinet's ongoing interest in the latest news from major voyagers, and his close friendship with Bougainville himself.The connection between Bougainville and Freycinet stretched back to the Baudin voyage, when Bougainville, who had joined the expedition as an 18-year-old midshipman, found himself bearing the brunt of Baudin's considerable ire: Baudin is known to have sent back damning reports on the young man to the Ministry. Freycinet supported Bougainville, however, and acquiesced in the young man's request for a transfer from Baudin's command to the smaller Naturaliste while in Port Jackson; at the time Baudin told Bougainville that he was a "poison" which he was "glad to be rid of" (Rivière, The Governor's Noble Guest, p. 9). The two men continued on the Naturaliste to France, and Freycinet's continuing regard for the younger officer was one of the reasons why Bougainville was able to rehabilitate his reputation, and go on to have such a stellar career in the French Navy.Bougainville was given command of the Thétis in 1822, and ordered to make a circumnavigation in 1824. The voyage was to prove important for both the political connections and the scientific discoveries made during its two-year course.The present manuscript is written in Bougainville's rather rushed but still very legible hand, and has the hallmarks of a draft rather than a polished presentation. It begins with an overview of the setting up of the ship for a "long campaign", and then gives a running journal of the voyage, beginning when they sail from Brest in March 1824, and describing their stays at Reunion, Ceylon, Pondicherry, Singapore, Manila, Macao, and Tourane (Da Nang). The manuscript finishes mid-voyage, half-way down the penultimate page, with a description of the "strong and well-constituted" islanders of the South China Sea near Vietnam: the account may well be complete as it stands, in which case one would assume that it was sent back to France at around that point in the voyage, or it may originally have continued in a second part now no longer extant. The break at the end of the text is neat and suggests that the manuscript is likely complete as it stands.Needless to say, any manuscript account by its commander of any major Pacific voyage is of enormous interest and significance, and of course of exceptional rarity outside of institutional collections. This is no slight manuscript, running to about 25,000 words in its 63 pages. It is long enough to be considered an alternative account of the first half of Bougainville's important expedition, and is quite distinct from any of the published versions that appeared in the wake of the voyage.

        Autograph letter signed ("Say").

      Paris, 5. VIII. 1826. - Large 4to. 1 p. with the integral address leaf attached. In French, to the engineer Mr. Collier in Ghent, writing in part: "Here I am back home at last, where it seems I will not be disturbed. I saw the chancellor of France two times, the President of the Court of Peers, which is the only one with the jurisdiction to judge me, and it seems that they have no desire at all to treat me rigorously. I will probably be pardoned on the King s birthday at the beginning of November. I thought you would receive this news with interest, and I ask you to have the kindness to pass it on to your son in London, whom I won t write until later. The present letter has another purpose, as well, i.e., to solicit your good offices for having several prospectuses of my work on the judicial institutions of England &c. distributed in Ghent, particularly at the school; they will reach you with one of the next couriers [ ]". - Say is best known for his law of markets, which postulates that supply creates its own demand. He attributed depression, therefore, not to a general deficiency in demand but rather to temporary overproduction for some markets and underproduction for others. This imbalance must automatically adjust itself, he believed, because overproducers have to redirect their production to conform with consumers preferences or be forced out of business. Say's law remained a central tenet of orthodox economics until the Great Depression of the 1930s. An obvious implication of Say s law is that the capitalist system is self-regulating; thus there is no need for government intervention in economic affairs.

        Statuti per la Real Congregazione e Monte del S.S. Sagramento de Nobili Spagnoli.

      Naples, dalla Reale Tipografia della Guerra, 1826. - Printed on high-quality paper. Engraved title page, 99, (1) pp., (1 l. indice, 1 blank l.), 3 modellos [numbered 1, 2, and 2 bis]. Large 8°, full crimson morocco (edges slightly bumped), spine with gilt bands (very minor wear at foot), crown and three fleur-del-lis on each cover of Maria Cristina, Princess of the Two Sicilies, later Queen of Spain, within a gilt roll-tooled border; spine gilt, marbled endleaves, all edges gilt. A few very small brown spots, but overall in fine condition. ---- FIRST EDITION in this form of these updated statutes for a charitable organization established to benefit Spaniards and their descendants in Naples. The @Prefazione (pp. 5-8) gives a brief history of the Real Congregazione e monte del Santissimo Sacramento de Nobili Spagnoli, which was founded in 1614 by Pedro Fernandez de Castro, Conde de Lemos, and issued its first statutes in 1624. Its members visited prisons and hospitals, gave alms, and assisted with marriages and funerals.The preface mentions the @demolizione of the home of the Congregazione soon after 1812, and that it was given a new home in the Chiesa di S. Giacomo. The church of San Giacomo degli Spagnoli was commissioned in 1540 by the Spanish Viceroy Pedro Alvarez de Toledo, Marquis of Villafranca. Dedicated to St. James (Santiago), patron saint of Spain, it was a landmark of Naples until 1816, when by order of Ferdinand I of Naples, it was enveloped in the neoclassical Palazzo San Giacomo in the Piazza Municipio, which today serves as the city hall.@Provenance: Bound for Maria Christina Ferdinanda di Borbone of the Two Sicilies, 1806-1878. Daughter of Francis I of the Two Sicilies and Maria Isabella of Spain, she was born in Palermo, Sicily. Soon after the third wife of Ferdinand VII of Spain died in 1829, Maria Christina became his fourth wife and was queen consort of Spain until Ferdinand?s death in 1833. Upon his death she became regent for her elder daughter, whose claim to the throne was disputed by her uncle in the Carlist Wars. Within months of Ferdinand?s death, Maria Cristina secretly married an ex-sargeant of the royal guards, to whom she bore several children. In 1844, when the regency ended, her daughter Isabella II gave official consent and the pair was publicly wed. Under Alfonso XII's reign, Maria Christina and daughter Isabella both died in exile in France.---- Not located in NUC. Not located in OCLC.

        Voyage autour du monde... [A series of Zoologie plates]

      Paris: Arthus Bertrand, circa, 1826. Five original parts, folio, containing a total of 32 plates, all of which with fine original handcolouring, a few spots; completely unbound as issued, and in fine condition in the original printed wrappers, fraying to spines and edges. Original plates from the Duperrey voyage. A substantial series of zoologicial natural history plates from the finely-illustrated Duperrey voyage, published in Paris between 1826 and 1830; publication was never in fact completed. Preserved in their fragile original "livraison" loose printed wrappers for the Atlas Zoologie, the plates variously depict fish, crustaceans, birds and mammals, including the 'Kangourou Oualabat' from New South Wales: the original specimens were collected from South America, the Pacific and New Guinea.This was one of the greatest French scientific expeditions. Apart from new discoveries, the voyage of thirty-one months corrected errors in existing maritime charts, gathered three hundred geological samples, twelve hundred insects, two hundred and sixty-four birds and quadrupeds as well as botanical specimens, reptiles and fishes. It reported on Pacific languages, costumes, weapons and artefacts. The superb illustrations resulting from these new discoveries are among the finest of nineteenth century voyage art.This assembly represents a chance to acquire a significant portion of the zoology discoveries from this major French expedition.The plates are as follows:1.Trigle Koumou, 2.

        A letter to the Editor of the Edinburgh Weekly Journal, from Malachi Malagrowther, Esq. on the proposed change of currency,

      and other late alterations, as they affect, or are intended to affect, the Kingdom of Scotland ... Second edition.Various failures and disorders in the financial world determined the Government to reform the banking system, the issue of notes to be restricted to the Bank of England. This would have seriously restricted trade in Scotland, apart from violating the Act of Union of 1707; the advantage fell to England by an assertion of her power and currency. Scott was indignant, and issued three letters based to a certain extent on Swift's Drapier letters; the letters made a sensation; meetings were called to oppose the measure, and his parliamentary friends in London were enraged. The letters had their effect: Scotland was excluded from the provisions of the bill, and today Scottish banks still issue their own bank notes. Croker was asked by the Cabinet to draw up a reply to Malachi Malagrowther, but at the same time wrote to Scott saying that there was no personal animosity; Scott returned a friendly letter reaffirming his position. An ironic sidelight on the controversy is that Scott was insolvent at this time; he also refers to this - "as for my affairs, which you allude to so kindly, I can safely say, that no oak ever quitted its withered leaves more easily than I have done what might be considered as good wealth".Scott's "diatribes produced in Scotland a sensation not, perhaps, inferior to that of the Drapier's letters in Ireland; a greater one, certainly, than any political tract had excited in the British public at large since the appearance of Burke's Reflections on the French Revolution".

In 1821 he opened a bookshop and circulating library in Scarborough, and it was there that he carried out his most successful publishing activity. He published over 100 small books on topographical and antiquarian subjects, especially on Northamptonshire and the area surrounding Scarborough.

Original plates from the Duperrey voyage. A substantial series of botanical plates from the finely-illustrated Duperrey voyage, published in Paris between 1826 and 1830; publication was never in fact completed. This was one of the greatest French scientific expeditions. Apart from new discoveries, the voyage of thirty-one months corrected errors in exisiting maritime charts, gathered three hundred geological samples, twelve hundred insects, two hundred and sixty-four birds and quadrupeds as well as botanical specimens, reptiles and fishes. It reported on Pacific languages, costumes, weapons and artefacts. The superb illustrations resulting from these new discoveries are among the finest of nineteenth century voyage art. The plates are as follows:1. Iridée D'Agustine 2. Iridée Étincelante 3. Halyménie Variée 4. Spherocoque Corallin 5. Dawsonie de Durville, Gigartine pied de Grenouille, Gigartine noircheveux 6.

Edinburgh: Printed for Archibald Constable and Co., 1826. First edition. Three small octavo volumes. iii-xvi, 315, (i, blank); iii-iv, 332; iii-iv, 370 pp. Contemporary full brown speckled calf, spines decoratively ruled in gilt, maroon and green leather lettering labels, neatly rebacked, lower joint of volume three a little cracked. Bound without the half-titles, a few scattered stains but overall a very good set."The busy period of the great Civil War was one in which the character and genius of different parties were most brilliantly displayed, and, accordingly, the incidents which took place on either side were of a striking and extraordinary character, and afforded ample foundation for fictitious composition." (Introduction)Woodstock, or The Cavalier: A Tale of the Year Sixteen Hundred and Fifty-one is a historical novel by Walter Scott. Set just after the English Civil War, it was inspired by the legend of the Good Devil of Woodstock, which in 1649 supposedly tormented parliamentary commissioners who had taken possession of a royal residence at Woodstock, Oxfordshire. The story deals with the escape of Charles II in 1652, during the Commonwealth, and his final triumphant entry into London on 29 May 1660.Todd & Bowden, 190A

        The Poetical Works of John Milton

      London - C. and J. Rivington; J. Cuthell, J. Nunn et al 1826 - A beautifully bound collection of the Poetical Works of John Milton. Complete in six volumes. The Third Edition, with Other Illustrations; and with Some Account of the Life and Writings of Milton, Derived Principally from Documents in his Majesty's State-Paper Office, now First Published. By the Rev. H. J. Todd, Chaplain in Ordinary to his Majesty, and Rector of Settrington, County of York. With a frontispiece portrait of John Milton to the front of volume I. John Milton (9 December 1608 8 November 1674) was an English poet, polemicist, man of letters, and a civil servant for the Commonwealth of England under Oliver Cromwell. He wrote at a time of religious flux and political upheaval, and is best known for his epic poem Paradise Lost (1667), written in blank verse. Milton's poetry and prose reflect deep personal convictions, a passion for freedom and self-determination, and the urgent issues and political turbulence of his day. Writing in English, Latin, Greek, and Italian, he achieved international renown within his lifetime, and his celebrated Areopagitica (1644)ritten in condemnation of pre-publication censorships among history's most influential and impassioned defenses of free speech and freedom of the press. William Hayley's 1796 biography called him the greatest English author, and he remains generally regarded as one of the preeminent writers in the English language, though critical reception has oscillated in the centuries since his death (often on account of his republicanism). Samuel Johnson praised Paradise Lost as a poem which. . . with respect to design may claim the first place, and with respect to performance, the second, among the productions of the human mind, though he (a Tory and recipient of royal patronage) described Milton's politics as those of an acrimonious and surly republican. Bound by Maclehose, Glasgow. Condition: In full calf leather bindings with raised bands to the spines and gilt embellishment to the front boards. Externally, smart with just minor shelfwear. There is some light stainingto the rear boards on all volumes. There is also some minor sunning to the extremities of the rear board on volume I. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are generally bright and clean with just foxing to front end-papers and frontis in volume I as shown. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Küstenlandschaft mit Pinien auf der Halbinsel Sestri Levante in Ligurien.

      . Bleistift, auf Velin, verso bezeichnet und datiert "Isola von Sestri Dec. 61. Morgenstern". 21,7:34,1 cm. Mit zwei Knickfalten, insgesamt nicht ganz frisch. Provenienz: Kölner Privatsammlung (Domtürme im Kreis), nicht bei Lugt. Literatur: I. Eichler: Carl Morgenstern. Unter besonderer Berücksichtigung seiner Schaffensphase von 1826-1846. In: Kunst in Hessen und am Mittelrhein, Heft 15 u. 16, Darmstadt 1976, S. 88 f., vgl. Abb. 13 und 14. Unsere Zeichnung geht auf Morgensterns südliche Küstenfahrt vom Sommer 1841 zurück und diente vielleicht als Grundlage für ein beauftragtes Atelierbild. Inge Eichler schreibt dazu: "Auch an der Levanteküste sind eine größere Anzahl von Zeichnungen entstanden. Es fällt auf, daß viele von ihnen annähernd gleiche Größe haben. Die weitaus größte Anzahl - 16 Blätter - trägt die Ortsbezeichnung "Sestri", zehn davon außerdem die Beifügung "Isola" oder auch "Insel". Morgenstern hat auf der Sestri Levante vorgelagerten Halbinsel zahlreiche Pinienstudien gemacht. Manche der Blätter zeigen nur wenige Bäume, andere dagegen wieder einen ganzen Pinienwald, der damals die gesamte, auf der Vorderseite steil ins Meer abfallende Insel bedeckte. Die Bäume sind mit minuziöser Genauigkeit gezeichnet, und es wurde Wert auf alle Details, wie die rissige Rinde und die Pinienzapfen gelegt....".. Der Landschaftsmaler Carl Morgenstern entstammte einer Frankfurter Künstlerfamilie, die über fünf Generationen tätig war. Er war Sohn von Johann Friedrich (1777-1844) und Vater von Friedrich Ernst Morgenstern (1853-1919). Neben der Lehrzeit beim Vater studierte er die altniederländische Malerei. Während seines Münchner Aufenthaltes 1832-1834 bildete er sich im Umgang mit den Landschaftsmalern C. Rottmann (1797-1850) und Chr. Morgenstern (1805-1867) weiter. 1833-1834 reiste er in die bayerischen und österreichischen Alpen. Seit 1834 hielt er sich in Italien auf, vorwiegend in Rom. Von hier aus unternahm er Ausflüge ins Albaner- und Sabinergebirge, nach Neapel und dessen Umgebung sowie nach Sizilien. 1837 kehrte er nach Frankfurt zurück. Weitere Reisen führten ihn 1839 nach Düsseldorf, Holland, Belgien, 1841 nach Frankreich, in die Schweiz und mehrmals nach Italien.
