        Ansichten Auf Einer Reise Nach Holland Und Paris, 1826; Original Travel Book with Original Water Color Paintings

      1826. 19 (4 5/8" x 7") full page or (4 5/8" x 15") double-paged watercolor paintings of Germany and Holland and a basic pencil sketch of the tomb of Massena in Paris and a few smaller preliminary sketches. Baron Christian Von Hayn was in the Palatinate and in 1845 purchased a large manor in Dambach from Andreas Brenner in Thannhausen. In 1868 he later noted that this was roughly a trip around the old parts of the Hanseatic League. Most paintings are identified in upper right hand corner (e.g., the Castle (Schoss) Johannisberg), other areas are the outskirts of Weisbaden, Emmerich (?), Schenkenschanz on the Rhein, The Toll House at Bruckhausen, The Petro Mango Alexander (the cabin of Peter the Great at Zaandam which Napoleon called "the finest monument in Holland"), Schoeningen (apparently out of place in order of trip), a recreation of when Wellington and Blucher met at Waterloo and [La] Belle Alliance was created on June 18, 1815 where there are several paintings. There is a pencil sketch of a man attempting to embrace a woman and she appears to be rather warning instead of condemning his advance. Several pages in ink note the major marshals of Napoleon's army suggesting he was making a tour of historical points of interest just a decade after his defeat (thus, the pencil sketch of Massena's tomb). .

        The History of the Rebellion and Civil War in England, to Which Is Added an Historical View of the Affairs of Ireland (8 Volume Set)

      Oxford, Clarendon Press 1826 - 8 volume set. Fine bindings. Handsome, contemporary calf bindings. Spines are profusely decorated with gilt.Red and gold spine labels and numbers. Spine heads and tails chipped. Binding professionally restored. A lovely set. Oxford, Clarendon Press, 1826-1827. Contemporary owner's armorial book plate, Lewis Kingsbury Conant - Stonehenge on front paste down. Lewis Conant was in the Harvard class of 1899. The History of the Rebellion and Civil Wars in Englands a work begun in exile during the late 1640s and was revised and completed in renewed exile after Clarendon?s fall from royal favour in 1667. Clarendon was a close adviser to two kings, and his intimacy with many of the key events is unrivaled. Though his narrative is inevitably partisan, the ambitious range of his analysis and his mastery of character portraiture make the History an extraordinary accomplishment. Almost fifty years later, Clarendon's great-grandson presented his papers and manuscripts to Oxford University on the understanding that all profits from the copyright of the History were to be used to finance buildings for the University press. This is an oversized or heavy book that requires additional postage for international delivery outside of Canada and the US. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        American Bible Printed in Spanish: La Biblia Sagrada, a saber: El Antiguo y el Nuevo Testamento, traducidos de la Vulgata Latina en espanol

      New York:: Edicion Estereotipica por A. Chandler,. 1826.. Nueva edition. Hardcover. Very good overall. A scarce American Bible printed in Spanish, the personal copy of Ebenezer Nye (1799 - 1891), ship's captain from Sandwich Massachusetts, who was the master of the brig Cicero when it sailed on a trading voyage from New York to Maracaibo, Venezuela. The Mystic Seaport at Connecticut owns Captain Nye's journal from this voyage which "Mentions shipboard routine, and navigational information. Cicero was driven ashore and wrecked while approaching Maracaibo. The crew fought off Indians and salvaged part of the cargo. (Nye then spent 4 months in Bogata, returning to Maracaibo in November 1827.)" The front free end paper has Nye's signature, and below it, "Maracaibo, 22 July 1827", which suggests that this Bible may have been acquired in gratitude for surviving the shipwreck and subsequent attack. The August 11, 1891 obituary in the Sandwich Observer notes that "Capt. Nye was a proficient scholar in all geographical, geometrical, mathematical and astronomical studies, and many of the younger navigators of the bay cruisers are graduates of his winter evening school he taught for their benefit. His observation of the planets on the bright starry evenings were ever a delight to the school teachers and scholars of his village, and writing up his surveys of harbors and rivers along our coast for "Blunt's American Coast Pilot", rendered him a proficient pilot for nearly every harbor along the entire length of our coast and the Gulf of Mexico." Nye's son Ebenezer F. Nye was also a ship's captain, master of the Mt. Wollaston, which disappeared in the Arctic.& & Secondary title: "Nueva Edition, a costa de la socieded Americana de la Biblia, conforme a la segunda, que revista y corregida publico su mismo traductor el ano de 1797 en Madrid.

In this novel, written in the winter of 1802 but not published during her lifetime, Radcliffe, so famous for her after-the-fact rational explanations of apparently supernatural occurrences, moved past semblance to feature supernatural machinery and a "genuine ghost, who supports a claim that the king's favorite knight has murdered him (for the sake of a magic sword).

        Portrait, Dupuytren bei einer Obduktion - Lithographie, 168 X 228 mm.

      . Von Louis-Thomas Bardel. Bezeichnet links unten: Bardel. 1826; rechts unten: Imp. par Bregeant.. "Der Oberkörper des männlichen Leichnams ist auf dem Sektionstisch hoch gelagert. Ein Instrument, ähnlich einer Kornzange, in der Linken, macht DUPUYTREN mit der Rechten eine erklärende Geste. Er trägt eine weiße Schürze wie auch der Gehilfe, der, ein Becken haltend, vor dem Sektionstisch kniet. - Da der Student am Fußende des Tisches das Skelett eines Beines vorweist, darf man annehmen, das DUPUYTRENS Ausführungen dem Bein gelten und speziell dem Oberschenkel. Im Jahre nach Entstehung dieser Lithographie hat er dann auch seine Abhandlung über die angeborenen Oberschenkelluxationen publiziert. - Cabanes war es, der das Blatt als Bildnis des DUPUYTREN veröffentlicht hat, was überzeugend ist. Den Lithographen nannte er dazu nicht. - Das Blatt ist selten und im Cabinet des Eestampes der Bibliotheque Nationale zu Paris in BARDELS Oeuvre nicht vorhanden."

        Tales of the Wild and Wonderful

      Philadelphia and New York: E. Little and G & Carvill, 1826. Hardcover. Very Good. Hardcover. First American edition. Attributed to Mary Diana Dods; but formerly attributed to George Borrow. Scottish author Mary Diana Dods (1790 - 1845) wrote under several aliases including David Lyndsay. A friend of Mary Shelley (author of Frankenstein), she was a frequent contributor to Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine and is known best for her gothic tales. Due to her masculine pseudonyms, tendency to dress like a man, and sexual preferences, she is sadly now remembered more for her controversial identity rather than her work. Printed anonymously, this book includes five short stories: The Prediction, The Yellow Dwarf, Der Freischütz, The Fortunes of de la Pole, and The Lord of the Maelstrom. According to the Monthly Review (January 1826): "We have here not merely the long-drawn horrors of superstition. There are 'tales of faerie and magicke,' full of prodigious wonderment and marvellous surprise, told 'with the tongue i' the cheek,' and with many a merry induction." Bound in contemporary three quarter leather binding with marbled paper boards, gilt title and gilt devices to spine. The front hinge is cracked, rear hinge is worn, and there is chipping to leather along spine. Rubbing to boards and minor wear to edges. Previous owner's name in pen to top edge of title page, foxing throughout, and occasional small spots of soiling. Marbled endpages. 252 pages.LIT/091014.

      - A very detailed hand tinted lithograph by Casimiro Castro (1826-1889) and J. Campillo (mid 19th century) illustrating aspects of rural and city life in Mexico from their sweeping book "Mexico y sus alrededores, colleccion de monumentos, trajes y paisajes.Mexico", which depicted the monuments, scenery and costumes of the day. Some of these views of the city of Mexico were taken from a balloon, and depicted the areas around the Alameda of Mexico. It was published in Mexico by Imprenta Lithographica de Decaen in 1864. This print measures 12.25" x 17.5". This book documents the late colonial, independence, and early national periods in Mexico—from about 1730 to 1850. An examination of this "middle period" offers an explicit examination on rural history. Compared to city dwellers, rural Mexicans seldom felt governmental reforms or institutional changes immediately. As colonial land tenure patterns shaped Indian communities, continuity rather than change characterized life in the Toluca region until the Ley Lerdo, the desamortization law of 1856. During this period the vast majority of Mexicans lived in the countryside. "Mexico y sus alrededores, colleccion de monumentos, trajes y paisajes.Mexico" was dedicated to studying and illustrating both aspects of city and rural life during this period in Mexican History. Overall this print is in very good condition with some foxing, staining and creasing.

      Ipswich, London - R. Deck, Longman and Co., 1826 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A bright, scarce first edition of Poems by Eliza Acton. Bound in the original publisher's boards, skilfully re-backed to suit. With the original half title. First Edition. Very scarce. Only appears once in auction records for the last 30 years (1995). Eliza Acton, 1799 - 1859, was an English poet and cook. Acton is probably most famous as the author who produced one of the country's first cookbooks aimed at the domestic reader rather than the professional cook or chef. In the book was included the first reciepe for Brussel Sprouts. At the age of seventeen she opened a school for girls, which remained open for four years. Her health was precarious and she apparently spent some time in France where she is rumoured to have had an unhappy love affair. She published her Poems after returning home and they enjoyed some small success. She subsequently published some single, longer poems, but it was her Modern Cookery (1845) that garnered her the widest acclaim; it was an immensely influential book which established the format for modern writing about cookery. Shortly after its publication she relocated to London but sadly died in 1859. Isabella Beeton's famous Mrs Beeton's Book of Household Management is closely modelled on Acton's publications. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. There is wear to the extremities, including bumping and rubbing, with handling marks and discolouration to the boards. There is a repair to the front board. Internally the pages are bright with scattered spotting that does not affect the visibility of the text. Overall the condition is very good..
