        UNIVERSA CIVILIS ET CRIMINALIS JURISPRUDENTIA. Ex naturali et romano jure depromta et ad usum fori perpetuo accomodata. Editio tertia, omni, qua licuit, cura atque labore indefesso, a quamplurimis, in notis praecipue, mendis, falsisque allegationibus repurgata, et correcta. Laude Pompeja (Lodi), E Typ. Joann.

Legatura in mz.pelle con titoli in oro ai dorsi. Piatti marmorizzati. Dorsi trattati con trasparente protettivo. L'insigne giurista Tommaso Maurizio Richeri (La Morra di Cuneo, 7 gennaio 1733 ? Torino, 1797), laureato in Giurisprudenza all'Università di Torino e successivamente insegnante di diritto, diviene famoso proprio per la presente opera, pubblicata a Torino in 12 volumi tra il 1774 e il 1782. "Tale opera è unanimemente considerata di fondamentale importanza per la conoscenza del diritto comune, di cui costituisce una summa conclusiva nella sua ultima evoluzione, poco prima che esso fosse abrogato per effetto dell'introduzione del codice napoleonico. L'importanza di questa sua opera fu tale che essa fu più volte ristampata, quanto meno fino al 1841. Altre sue opere importanti, anche se di minore diffusione, sono: "Codex rerum in Pedemontano Senatu iudicatarum", in tre volumi, e "Institutiones universae civilis et criminalis iurisprudentiae ad ius romanum et fori usum exactae, quibus accedit tractatus de feudis" (da wikipedia).

He was also a fellow of the Royal Society, a fellow of the Society of Antiquaries, and served as one of the New Buckingham Palace Commissioners from 1848. Author's first book. A fictitious account of her travels in Italy. This book gained her a certain notoriety when it was revealed to be fictitious rather than strictly autobiographical."(Her husband, Robert ) Jameson encouraged his wife in writing and in the publishing of her first travel book. Published anonymously in 1826 by R. Thomas under the title "A Lady's Diary" and then again in 1826 by Colburn as "Diary of an Ennuyée". It was a romanticized and fictionalized version of her European trip ending with the death of its heart-broken narrator and heroine." quoted from Clara Thomas.

        Der Schmuggler

      1826. Aquarell auf Karton, unten rechts signiert und datiert: "E. Isabey 1826", 21,4 x 17,3 cm. Professionell unter säurefreiem Museumspassepartout montiert.. Eugene Isabeys OEuvre ist bestimmt von einer Leidenschaft für das Leben mit und auf dem Meer in all seinen Facetten. Regelmäßig bereiste er die Küsten der Normandie und der Bretagne. Hier nahm er die raue See, die ehrliche, harte Arbeit der Fischer und die besonderen Typen der Küstenregion in seinen Blick. Er widmete seine Aufmerksamkeit dabei ferner den Schattenseiten jenes harten Lebens, wie etwa dem Schmugglermilieu. Der Schleichhandel zwischen den britischen Inseln und dem europäischen Festland gehörte seit jeher zum Leben an der nordfranzösischen Küste. Eine besondere Blüte erlebte jene Schmugglerkultur zur Zeit der napoleonischen Kontinentalsperre (1806-14). Doch auch in den Jahrzehnten nach ihrer Aufhebung florierte der illegale Handel auf beiden Seiten des Kanals. Allein in siebzehn seiner Skizzen beschäftigt sich Isabey ausdrücklich mit Motiven aus dem litoralen Schwarzhandel. So auch im vorliegenden Blatt (Unser Blatt ist im Werksverzeichnis unter Nr.27 erwähnt. Vgl. Miquel 1980, WVZ Nr. 1527: Le Contrebandier; verkauft am 18. Dezember 1920, n° 67.): Hier legt der junge Künstler sein Augenmerk auf die Figur eines Schmugglers. Mit den beiden Hunden rastet der Schleichhändler auf dem abschüssigen Boden unter einer Klippe an der felsigen Küste, den langen Stab links neben sich an die Wand gelehnt. Zu seiner Rechten liegt das mit einer großen Schnalle am breiten Riemen geschnürte Bündel. Einer der Hunde schlummert, der zweite wacht neben der zusammengekauerten Figur. Der Schmuggler hat den Umhang aus grobem, an verschiedenen Stellen geflicktem Stoff fest um den Leib gewunden und harrt in seinem Versteck der Dinge. Der stoische, etwas schwermütige Ausdruck auf seinem Antlitz und die ruhig abwartende Haltung künden vom Alltag jenes Mannes, der geprägt ist vom geduldigen Warten und von einer Existenz im Verborgenen. Die düstere, etwas nachdenkliche Stimmung erreicht der Künstler durch eine gedämpfte Farbpalette in der dunkle Braun- und Beigetöne dominieren. Ferner konzentriert er die Aufmerksamkeit auf die kleine Szene, indem er die dunkle Figur des Schmugglers vor eine hell aufgleißende Partie der Felswand setzt. Dabei charakterisiert er die Felsen und den sandigen Untergrund in lockeren Stichen und Lavierungen in der Art, wie wir sie etwa aus der britischen Aquarellmalerei kennen. Und nicht von ungefähr erscheint dieser gewisse Einfluss der englischen Aquarellisten in unserem vorliegenden Blatt äußerst evident. Hatte Isabey doch im Sommer des Jahres vor der Entstehung unseres Blattes Großbritannien bereist. Zur gleichen Zeit hielten sich sowohl Isabey als auch Richard Parkes Bonington (unter anderem in Gesellschaft von Eugene Delacroix) in England auf. Später dann, im Herbst 1825, verbrachten Bonington und Isabey einige Zeit zusammen an der französischen Kanalküste, wo sie gemeinsame Zeichenexkursionen unternahmen.

        Statements and Observations Concerning the Hulks

      London: C. and J. Rivington, 1826. Octavo, a fine copy in handsome aquamarine half-calf with gilt lettering. The Thames Hulks condemned. Scathing report on the hulks, revealing the same problems that beset the system at the time of the First Fleet continued well into the nineteenth-century.In the preface, the author clearly states his aim is reform in Parliament, not vilification of the warders: 'It is not my intention in the following pages to charge misconduct on any of those, who have the care and or custody of the convicts in the hulks. The evils which prevail there, appear to me to be the result of a defective system of management, and to require the interference of Parliament for the correction...'George Holford (1768?-1839) was a Cambridge educated lawyer who served as MP for various constituencies from 1803 to 1826. Although in his early life a playwright and author of works on politics and religion, once he became an MP he established himself as a persistent crusader for prison reform, author of works such as this one, and An account of the General Penitentiary at Millbank (1828).

      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.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Wien, 2. X. 1826. - ½ S. 4to. An Franz Xaver von Peball, den Verweser des Kommunitäts-Radwerks Nr. VI in Vordernberg (Steiermark): "Bis jetzt bleibet es bey meinem Abgehen von hier am 8-9. worüber ich bereits mein Haus benachrichtigte [.] neues giebt es hier gar nicht - und das Gerüchte rücksichtlich Göß scheint nur zu den vielen Lügen zu gehören welche aus Leoben kommen, indeß will ich doch des Spaßes wegen nachfragen [.] Unser Kaiser ist sehr gesund und da alle Leute Ihm [!] zu Pferde sehen so werden die falschen Gerüchte auf einige Zeit still seyn [.]". - Erzherzog Johann, der 1822 das Vordernberger Radgewerk Nr. 2 erworben hatte, sollte bis zum Ende des Jahrzehnts die anderen ortsansässigen Radmeister vom Eintritt in eine "Bergunion" überzeugen, deren Gründungsvertrag heute als eigentliches Gründungsdokument der Oesterreichisch-Alpine Montangesellschaft (ÖAMG) gilt, aus der im vergangenen Jahrhundert die Vereinigten Österreichischen Eisen- und Stahlwerke (VÖEST) und später die Voestalpine AG hervorgehen sollte. Unter Johanns Einfluß auch ersteigerte die "Vordernberger Radmeisterkommunität" das Stift Göss, wo auf die Initiative des Erzherzogs hin eine bergmännische Lehranstalt, die &#132;Steiermärkisch-Ständische Montanlehranstalt", gegründet wurde, die 1849 nach Leoben verlegt werden sollte und aus der 1904 die &#132;Montanistische Hochschule" und 1975 die &#132;Montanuniversität Leoben" hervorging. - Etwas gebräunt und mit kleineren Randläsuren.

        Letter from the Secretary of War Regarding Florida Indians [Seminole Interest] [Slavery Interest]

      Washington, D.C.: Gales & Seaton, 1826. 1st Edition. Trade Paperback Trade Paperback. Very Good. (Government & Law, Americana) BARBOUR, James, Thomas L. McKenney, William P. Duval, et al. Letter from the Secretary of War, Transmitting the information required of the House of Representatives, of the 16th of May last, in relation to the Florida Indians [19th Congress, 2nd Session, Doc. No. 17]. Washington, D.C.: Gales & Seaton, 1826. First Edition. Paper wrappers, 39 pages [disbound]. Removed from larger volume. Foxing and edge wear. Very Good condition overall. A series of communication initiated after a party of Indians who were hunting in an area contrary to a previous treaty “fell in with an innocent and unoffending man in this county, shot and scalped him.” Contents include correspondences between James Barbour [Secretary of War], Thomas L. McKenney [General Superintendent of Indian Affairs], William P. Duval [Governor of Florida], and others. At one point, it is stated that the “Indians must be protected, on the one hand, from the press of white people, of which you speak, and the white people from the depredation of Indians, on the other.” Another section even addresses rules with the Native American regarding slaves: “No buying or selling of slaves will be permitted by the agent, or the agency. If the Indians own slaves, they are their property; if they secrete runaway slave, they must give them up to their rightful owners.”

        THE MOLOCH OF ORTHODOXY, OR THE TWO FACES OF THAT SYSTEM EXHIBITED IN CARICATURE; WITH A BURLESQUE ON THE SOPHISTRY BY WHICH THE TWO ARE ATTEMPTED TO BE RECONCILED TOGETHER [caption title]

      Boston: Sold [by Wells and Lilly] at No. 91, Court Street, [1826]. Broadside. Good. Broadside, approximately x inches (printed area approximately inches), printed in three columns with a table, relief-printed image, and ornamental borders. Contemporary price inscription in lower margin, early folds, with a few minor tears (not affecting text or image), toning and mild foxing. Good to very good. An elaborate Boston broadside attacking Andover Theological Seminary for "two-faced" Calvinism. The author prints his Moloch, a Janus-like portrait half in light extending an olive branch, half in shadow wielding a whip and casting thunderbolts, between the orthodoxy "for Sabbath afternoons[,] crowded congregations, revival meetings, &c. &c." and that "for Sabbath mornings, private meetings, select companies, &c. &c.," the former using language of free will and grace, the latter of "Fix't Fate" and "Free Wrath." Andover Theological Seminary was founded early in the Unitarian Controversy of 1805-1835, during which "Orthodox" Calivinist Congregationalists split from their more liberal Congregationalist peers, who were tending toward Unitarian theology. After the appointment of leading liberal preacher Henry Ware to the Hollis Chair at Harvard in 1805, Harvard's Calvinist faction left the college and founded Andover Seminary as a Orthodox alternative for the training of ministers in 1807 (making it the oldest graduate institution in the U.S.). It immediately began grappling with questions of how to represent Calvinism in its full harshness to 19th-century audiences holding gentler and more nuanced worldviews than their Puritan forebears. The author of the present broadside found their efforts disingenuous. From the concluding paragraphs: "The pagans in the east represent some of their deities as delighting in human blood, and boast that one of them can drink a boatful at once. But the Moloch of Orthodoxy is represented as delighting in the eternal damnation of myriads of human beings and to glut his devilish appetite, has fore-ordained from all eternity, that a certain number of the human race shall writhe and gnash their teeth in eternal agonies, plunged in a burning pool of liquid fire; and that not because they were more wicked than the rest of mankind, but merely because it is his SOVEREIGN WILL. Formerly this Idol was exhibited to open view, and the priests in their public administrations at his shrine, did not hesitate to eulogise hus greatest deformities and thunder out their anathemas against those who refused their admiration. But they have lately discovered that this is not good policy, that the people are fast leaving them and crowding around other altars. And to prevent a total desertion of their Moloch Worship, and if possible to recover their lost influence, they have now thrown a veil over their Idol, and exhibit him only as his worshippers are able to bear it. They affirm that he is no longer the same Moloch he was once; that his features have been so modeled by some of his modern votaries as to be quite another thing; or to speak without a figure, that modern Calvinists do not believe in the same sanguinary doctrines as their ancient brethren. But it requires no great penetration to see even through the thick veil of sophistry thrown over the Idol, that he is still the same bloody Moloch he ever was." Rare, with OCLC locating two copies, at the American Antiquarian Society and the New-York Historical Society.

        The Hobart Town Gazette. Saturday, June 10, 1826

      Hobart: George Terry Howe, 1826. Bifolium, 4 pp., a little rubbed and browned, very good overall. Runaway convicts 'basking on the sunny beach'. An unusually exiting issue: we learn of bushrangers aided by convicts escaped from a gang working on Maria island, and the dissolute life led by runaway convicts. Indeed, the best part of an entire page is devoted to the runaways, who are accused of coercing Aboriginal women: 'every other labour is performed by the native women, whom these unprincipled men carry off from the main, and compel to hunt, work, and fish, an do every other menial service; while they themselves sit on the beach and smoke, drink and sleep by turns, occasionally perhaps rousing to kill a young seal while basking on the sunny beach.'Other matters are more pedestrian, one notice pleads for parents to have their children inoculated against the pox as 'a safeguard against such a scourge upon the Human Race' We also learn of the excitement of new vegetable crop seeds arrived from England, the float of Van Diemen's Land company shares, shipping news, notices of goods newly imported and now for sale, government contracts and tenders, and the like.

        A Treatise of Mechanics, Theoretical, Practical, and Descriptive Plates

      London: Printed for Geo. B. Whittaker, (and others). 1826. Fourth edition, corrected and Improved. Issued in three volumes: two of text and one of plates this is the PLATE VOLUME ONLY. Full contemporary red crushed calf, ruled and titled in gilt. 63 plates, mostly folding. Darkening to the boards, considerable rubbing to the joints, foxing, mostly to the margins of the plates, still a sound, good copy. Mathematician Joseph Ray's copy, with his ownership signature: "Joseph Ray, M.D. Woodward High School, Cincinnati, (date indecipherable). 2 volumes & plates, $15.25." Ray was a professor of mathematics and wrote several books on the subject, beginning in 1834 with An Introduction to Ray's Eclectic Arithmetic, the first of a series of six textbooks which became the most popular and widely used American mathematics textbooks of the Nineteenth Century. They also formed the basis for Ray's Mathematical Series of textbooks. As late as 1913, annual sales exceeded a quarter of a million copies a year, and total sales of the arithmetic books alone are estimated at 120 million copies. The success of Ray's Arithmetic series prompted his publisher to seek an author for a set of readers. They chose William Holmes McGuffey, who joined Ray on the faculty of Woodward College, and where he wrote the McGuffey Readers which surpassed even Ray's Arithmetics to become the most popular textbooks ever written. .
