        Alexander-Newski-Gedächtniskirche auf dem Kapellenberg, Potsdam, 1856. Original-Photographie. Vintage. Salzpapier-Abzug. Verlagsseitig montiert. Köln, verlegt durch F.C. Eisen, 1856. Bildgröße 25 x 39 cm. Blattgröße 45 x 63 cm.

      - Auf dem Träger Blindstempel des Verlegers (der Träger an den Rändern leicht gebräunt sowie ein ganz kleiner Einriß im rechten weißen Rand, der Abzug im linken und unteren Rand etwas blass, sonst sehr gut erhalten). Rarissimum der frühen Potsdam-Photographie und sicherlich die erste großformatige fotografische Ansicht der berühmten Kirche. Die Kirche wurde zwischen 1826 und 1829 von Friedrich Wilhelm III. für die aus Russland stammenden Soldaten des Sängerchors der russischen Kolonie Alexandrowka errichtet und ist das älteste russisch-orthodoxe Kirchengebäude in Westeuropa. Die frühesten überlieferten Potsdam-Fotos stammen von sog. 'Reisephotographen', also solchen, die nicht ortsansässig waren. In Potsdam waren dies Michiels (1823-1887), der 1856 dort photographierte, und die Brüder Schneider, die erst 1859 Berlin und Potsdam bereisten. Michiels ist vor allem für seine Aufnahmen vom Kölner Dom bekannt, von seinen - hervorragenden - Potsdam-Photographien tauchten bisher nur ganz wenige auf. Vier Motive wurden 2006 im Rahmen der Ausstellung 'Auslöser Potsdam' gezeigt, weitere kennt man nur aus dem Inserat, das der Verleger Eisen 1858 in der Leipziger 'Illustrirten Zeitung' schaltete. Abgesehen von der Seltenheit ist das große Format und der ausgezeichnete Erhaltungszustand des hier angebotenen Abzugs bemerkenswert. Der seinerzeitige Preis betrug übrigens 2 Taler (Thaler) pro Blatt, das entspricht etwas dem Wochengehalt eines Webers um 1850 oder dem halben Monatslohn einer Stickerin oder Weißnäherin in Berlin. - Vgl.

        Sinfonie mit Schluss-Chor über Schillers Ode: "An die Freude" für grosses Orchester, 4 Solo und 4 Chor - Stimmen. Componirt und Seiner Majestät dem König von Preussen Friedrich Wilhelm III in tiefster Ehrfurcht zugeeignet...125.tes Werk

      Engraved title-page, one letter-press leaf of subscribers, 226 engraved pages, & a final blank. Folio, cont. sheep-backed marbled boards (rubbed, lower joint expertly repaired, foot of spine a little worn), orig. printed upper wrapper cut-out & mounted on upper board (a little stained). Mainz & Paris: B. Schott Sons; Antwerp: A. Schott, [1826]. First edition, the rare first issue with the leaf of subscribers, of Beethoven's epic Ninth Symphony. "Even for Beethoven, the Ninth Symphony was a signal accomplishment, the most ambitious work in a series of pieces that changed forever the concept of the symphony. The Ninth required a gestation period of almost thirty years, beginning with Beethoven's initial consideration of Schiller's 'An die Freude' in the 1790s, continuing with his first sketches of 1815, and ending with his completed score of 1824… "Significantly, it was also the composer's last word in the realm of the symphony, since plans for the Tenth - or what seems to have been the Tenth - remained in sketch form. In the Ninth, even more than in Fidelio, Beethoven set forth a visionary credo for humankind, for its 'rescue from the chains of the tyrants.' The work represents a forceful voice for Romantic aspirations, as expressed with such deep fervor in Schiller's famous ode… "The Ninth is an epic, revolutionary work. Within its extended time frame, one traverses the many plains of Beethoven's compositional landscape: demonic conflict (the opening Allegro), tempestuous contrasts (the scherzo), ethereal reflection (the Adagio), and unabashed exuberance (the finale). In the last movement, Beethoven symbolically broke not only the chains of tyrants, but those of instrumental music as well, moving out of E.T.A. Hoffmann's abstract realm of 'pure expression' and into the world of the vocal symphony. The immense mixed forces of the Ninth prepared the way for the changes that took place in the symphonic repertory in the next hundred and fifty years, from Berlioz to Mahler to Berio."-George B. Stauffer, in his preface to David Benjamin Levy's Beethoven: the Ninth Symphony. "The first edition score of the Ninth Symphony was not issued until the end of August 1826 (B. Schott Söhne, Mainz; Plate Number 2322), and it was marketed as Beethoven's '125.tes Werk' on a subscription basis along with the score of the Missa solemnis, op. 123 and the 'Consecration of the House' Overture, op. 124. Beethoven promised the Philharmonic Society of London that he would not publish the Ninth until after it had been performed in London."-Levy, op. cit., p. 42. The leaf of subscribers was only inserted in copies ordered prior to publication; it is itself a fascinating document listing the names of the (mostly) German world of musical institutes, publishers, and musicians of the time. The word "Partition" on the upper wrapper (here mounted onto the upper board of the binding, as is common with some of the few other surviving copies) was omitted in the later issues. The original stab-holes are present. Provenance: Jacob Martin Severinus Heuckeroth (1853-1936), composer, and chief conductor of the Arnhemsche Orchest Vereeniging from 1892 to 1904, and of the Nederlandse Opera from 1908 to 1912, with his ownership inscription in pencil to the upper margin of the second front free end-paper and upper margin of title, and with his stamp at foot, and to the lower blank margins of a couple of further pages, as well as on the mounted printed original upper wrapper. Heuckeroth placed specific emphasis on the performance of symphonic works. The Arnhemsche Orchest Vereeniging first performed Beethoven's Ninth, with Heuckeroth conducting. His studies of the symphony are reflected by occasional notes in pencil and blue crayon in this copy. A very good copy and extremely fresh, preserved in a cloth box. A few leaves with light, marginal damp-staining; oval purple ownership stamp on title, to lower margins of a couple of pages, and on the mounted upper wrapper; several old page markers; one leaf with a stain and with minor paper abrasion in outer blank margin. ? Stanford 48; Hirsch IV, 395.

        Feyerliche Einweihung der Synagoge in München den 21. April 1826

      Printing in Hebrew. 23 pages. Small 4to, orig. blue boards, gilt border round sides, contrasting pink endpapers, a.e.g. Munich: C. Wolf, [1826]. The extremely rare printed program for the inauguration of the first public synagogue in Munich on 21 April 1826. The impressive neoclassical building on the Westenriederstrasse was designed and erected by Jean Baptiste Métivier for the small but important Munich community of court Jews and state suppliers founded in 1815. The project was supported by King Max I Joseph of Bavaria, and his successor Ludwig I attended the ceremony with his wife and members of the nobility. Contemporary journals praised the festive character of the event. The inauguration speech was given by Hirsch Aub who became rabbi of the new synagogue through more than four decades. The director of the royal chapel and opera, Joseph Hartmann Stunz, and the royal intendant Johann Nepomuk von Poissl set prayers, psalms and a long hymn to music. The instrumental parts were executed by the King's musicians. The ceremony ended with the Ha-noten teshu'a (a prayer for the welfare of the King and his family) and the evening prayers for Sabbath and Pesach. Much printing in Hebrew. A crisp and large copy on thick paper. In fine condition, from the Wittelsbach library of the dukes and kings of Bavaria.

        On the Influence of Signs in Mathematical Reasoning

      1 p.l., 53 pp. Large 4to, orig. blue wrappers, uncut. London: J. Smith, 1826. A remarkable association copy of this extremely rare offprint, linking two of the greatest scientists of the 19th century, and pre-figuring Babbage's later work on his difference and analytical engines. This copy bears the following inscription on the title-page in Babbage's hand: "To M. Gauss from the Author." Additionally, Babbage has written on the upper wrapper: "M. Gauss. Influence of Signs. 3. Ch. Babbage. On the influence of signs in mathematical reasoning." Babbage here presents his views on the importance of symbolic notation in mathematical reasoning. He argues that algebraic symbolism enables one to express ideas more briefly and precisely than in ordinary language; it enables one to consider problems in great generality, rather than only in special cases; and it often enables one to consider simultaneously different cases of a problem that would otherwise be treated separately. The use of mathematical symbols is more efficient, and less prone to error, than other forms of reasoning, as he emphasized particularly when discussing the superiority of algebraic analysis over geometrical reasoning: "[T]he power which we possess by the aid of symbols in compressing into a small compass the several steps of a chain of reasoning, whilst it contributes greatly to abridge the time which our enquiries would otherwise occupy, in difficult cases influences the accuracy of our conclusions: for from the distance which is sometimes interposed [in geometrical reasoning] between the beginning and the end of a chain of reasoning, although the separate parts are sufficiently clear, the whole is often obscure" (p. 8). Babbage also emphasizes the importance of choosing the correct notation: it should remind the user of the nature of the quantity itself (so use 'v' for velocity, 't' for time, and so on); and related quantities should be denoted by similar symbols (so v, v', v'' etc. for the velocities of different bodies in the same problem, for example). Babbage singles out Lagrange's Mecanique Analitique as a model to be emulated in the correct choice of mathematical symbols. The present paper may be seen as part of a chain of ideas that links not only his mathematical and scientific work, but also his views on politics and industry. While a student at Cambridge, Babbage formed, together with Herschel and Peacock, the "Analytical Society." This society was principally concerned with a matter of mathematical symbolism: its aim was famously to support "the principles of pure D'ism in opposition to the Dot-age of the University." Theological overtones apart, this was a plea to replace what Babbage and the other members of the Society viewed as the outdated and inefficient Newtonian fluxional "dot" notation still used in England with the Leibnizian dy/dx notation which was universally employed on the Continent. "For Herschel and Babbage, however, there was more to analysis than a debate about the appropriate mathematical symbols…The key to the success of analytical algebra as they saw it was its efficiency. It was a problem-solving technology that could produce answers quickly and without wasting resources…It was a way of economizing mental labor. As such it could be used to recognize what the most efficient way of proceeding in other enterprises might be too. It could provide the key, for example, to the most profitable way of deploying resources in order to maximize factory production."-Morus, When Physics became King, p. 36. "Babbage's ultimate solution to the problem of how to guarantee efficiency, transparency, and accuracy in reasoning was the same as his solution to the same problem in political economy: replace humans with machinery. Babbage was a firm exponent of the division of labor in factory management and equally enthusiastic for mechanization as the ultimate realization of the principle. His primary concern throughout the 1820s and beyond was to work on his projected calculating and analytical engines…The calculating engine would replace the human drudge work for calculating mathematical tables to be used (for example) in actuarial work and in astronomy. The analytical engine would go further - it would replace the human capacity to reason as well."-ibid., pp. 37-38. When developing his difference engine Babbage again realized the importance of symbolism: in "A Method of Expressing by Signs the Action of Machinery" (Philosophical Transactions: 1826) he developed a special notation, related to Boolean algebra (which was developed later), to accurately describe the working of the engine. Babbage first met Gauss in the course of a European tour he undertook starting at the end of 1827. After travelling through Holland, Belgium, Germany and Italy, Babbage arrived in Berlin in September 1828 to meet Alexander von Humboldt, then regarded as the greatest scientist of the century. At the time, Humboldt was organizing the seventh annual Congress of German scientists. Babbage was present when the Congress opened on 18 September 1828, with Gauss among the several hundred scientists and luminaries present. It was there that Babbage met Gauss. Babbage's paper was read at a meeting of the Cambridge Philosophical Society on 16 December 1821, but it was not published in its Transactions until more than five years later (Vol. 2, 1827, pp. 325-377). The item offered here is a very rare pre-publication offprint, dated 1826 on the title page. In very fine and fresh condition, entirely uncut. Preserved in a handsome blue morocco-backed box. With the stamps of the "Gauss-Bibliothek" (also on upper wrapper) and the Royal Observatory at Göttingen on title with release stamp date 15 October 1951. ? D.S.B., I, pp. 354-56.

      N. p., 30. IV. 1826. - 8vo. 3 pp. on bifolium. A secretarial letter signed by Sir Humphry Davy ("H. Davy") as President of the Royal Society, to one "Sir", marked "Private & confidential", explaining that, as President, he is unable to interfere in elections, mentioning that Fellows are divided into two classes, "working scientific men" and "Patrons of Science", going on to explain that professional men should offer "some paper or communication which may imply qualification" though "this rule has not been so strictly attended to as it ought to have been". - At this time, a year before Davy gave up the Presidency, the Royal Society was "teetering between remaining a gentleman's club and becoming an academy of science. Davy favoured judicious modernizing [.] He made publication an important factor in election, but, lacking the social status of Banks, he was unable to force his will upon the fellows, and found himself between hostile camps" (David Knight, ODNB). - Two light stains, and some slight damage to edges.

        Collection of correspondence relating to Telford and road building between 1825 and 1828, 40 letters and 13 copy letters.

      - A comprehensive collection of documents and letters concerning the legalities of a road improvement from Ashbourne to Leek, as part of the London to Carlisle road system. The letters are to and from a solicitor, John Cruso, who had been appointed to manage the legalities to buy the land necessary for the new road to run through. The correspondence includes nine letters between John Cruso and his son, also John, who was a barrister at Temple, London, and gives some indication of some of the frustrations in progressing Telford's project. '.

I have to pay Mr Telford £60 for the plans etc, the expense of lodging the plans with the clerks of the peace cost more than £10 so that with my expenses I shall be more than £100 out of pocket if I am not paid by the Ashbourne funds.'[copy letter, 4 April 1826]Telford was given the nickname 'Colossus of Roads' by his friend, the poet Robert Southey. Among his main achievements in road making were the London to Holyhead and Bangor to Chester roads as engineer to the Holyhead road commissioners from 1815, and the Glasgow to Carlisle, Lanarkshire and highlands of Scotland roads as engineer to the highland roads commissioners from 1803. At about the time of this correspondence, Telford also advised on the 100 mile Warsaw to Brzesc major road towards Moscow, which was completed in 1825.

      1826. ½ S. 4to. An Franz Xaver von Peball, den Verweser des Kommunitäts-Radwerks Nr.

        Considerations on the state of the currency.

      London: John Murray, 1826. 8vo., iv + 128 + (2) + 129 - 152pp., title and one or two preliminary pages a little foxed, bound in the late 20th century in plain boards with handwritten title label on upper cover. A very good copy. First edition. Goldsmiths 25024. Kress C.1805. Stephens p.64. Einaudi 5653. Mattioli 3629. Tooke's detailed examination of the causes which might affect prices. He concluded that price variations were due to circumstances directly connected with the commodities themselves, and not to alterations in the quantity of money. 'The work was at first meant as a sequel to the first part of the High and Low Prices>, published 1822, but he afterwards devoted it more especially to the consideration of the events between that date and 1826. He argues that the Bank ought to have unloaded, at any rate the greater part of, the 'Dead Weight Annuity' as soon as the increased issues for payment upon the purchases produced a bad effect on the exchanges, or to have raised the rate as a means of decreasing the redundant issue. Also that the non-publication of the Bank's accounts introduced too large an element of uncertainty, and suggests the obvious remedy. The greatest evils, however, were the precarious state of the country issues. 'Every country Banker ought to be called upon to give some pledge of his ability to pay on demand the Notes which he may be permitted to issue'. Further, 'there is one part of that circulation which ought not upon any footing or with any modification to be any longer tolerated. I mean the Notes under £5'. Some Country Banks grumbled if the public asked for gold; he rightly says: 'If there is any feeling of the harshness of demanding coin for the Notes of a Bank, such Notes are more or less imperfectly convertible'.' [T.A. Stephens, A contribution to the bibliography of the Bank of England>, 1897, pp.64-5].

      1826. 1 S. 4to. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten mit Dank für dessen "willkommenes Geschenk": "[...] Eines kann ich nicht unterlassen, jetzt gleich zu berühren, nähmlich dass die Übertragung der Hüfinger Angelegenheit in die Hände eines Einzigen, und zwar der Ihrigen, der Sache von ausserordentlichem Wortheile sein werde! [...]". - E. J. Leichtlen war als Archivrath am Provinzialarchiv zu Freiburg thätig und veröffentlichte u. a. "Forschungen im Gebiete der Geschichte, Alterthums-, Sprach- und Schriftenkunde Deutschlands", eine "Chronik von Gottesau" (1810), "Beiträge zur Vaterlandsgeschichte" (1811), einen "Almanach der Universität Heidelberg" (1813), "Badens Kriegsverfassung, insbesondere Landwehr und Landsturm im 17. Jahrhundert" (1815) und eine Abhandlung "Die Zähringer mit wichtigen älteren Urkunden". Leichtlen "ist auch als Verfasser eines Stenographiesystems zu nennen, welches im J. 1819 unter dem Titel 'Vollständige Anleitung zur Geschwindschreibkunst, mit einer geschichtlichen Einleitung' zu Freiburg i. B. erschien. Dasselbe stellt sich dar als eine gegen die früheren Versuche manche Vortheile bietende Bearbeitung der englisch-französischen Methoden, giebt aber keine praktische Durchführung der aufgestellten Grundsätze, sondern mehr theoretische Anweisungen. Durch die in demselben Jahre veröffentlichte zweite Ausgabe des Lehrbuches von Mosengeil (s. dies.) und noch mehr durch die spätere Arbeit Nowak's (s. diesen)) wesentlich übertroffen, hat seine Schrift zu irgend welcher Bedeutung niemals gelangen können" (ADB XVIII, 214).

        Sur l'identité des deux espèces nominales d'Ornithorhynque; (Lu à l'Académie des Sciences le 18 décembre 1826)

      Annales des Sciences Naturelles, Paris 1826 - 12 pp., caption-title; tipped into a modern binding of quarter linen and boards. The renowned French zoologist Étienne Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire on the platypus: an important study, read to the Académie des Sciences and set up in print for publication in the appropriate learned journal. This is a very rare separate offprint (paginated 1 to 8 for separate issue rather than simply being clipped from its journal version).Saint-Hilaire here discusses research into the platypus made possible by the delivery of a brace of the monotremes by Hyacinthe de Bougainville, commander of the Thétis expedition just returned to Paris from the southern ocean. He discusses work by Shaw in England, reports by Péron from the Baudin expedition, and work by other eminent naturalists in Europe. The second half of the text is the most controversial, occupied by vigorous debate about ideas promulgated by the German naturalist Meckel in his ground-breaking Ornithorhynchi Paradoxi published just weeks previously. Meckel's first full separate study of the animal concentrated on the animal's reproductive system and especially the mammary glands of the female. Saint-Hilaire objected strenuously to this approach, asserting that the relevant glands were in fact odoriferous and designed only to attract a mate. Saint-Hilaire was, of course, plain wrong, but that didn't become clear for decades. Meanwhile in the furious debates about the classification of the platypus of the 1820s and 1830s, Saint-Hilaire occupied centre-stage. (Some years ago we handled the sale of a collection of his manuscript drafts and notes on the subject, which showed just how controversial the whole subject became).It was Saint-Hilaire himself who had coined the term "Monotremata" as early as 1803. He had been appointed professor of quadrupeds, cetaceans, birds, reptiles and fish at the Musée d'Histoire Naturelle in 1793 at the young age of twenty-one. He travelled with Napoleon's campaign to Egypt, but it was his long study of the museum's mammalian collection that made him famous, and led to comparisons with Cuvier (although the two men fell out in 1829). During his tenure he published a series of articles and monographs on the platypus, stubbornly holding that it must be a vertebrate, and refusing to believe that it could possibly be a mammal.

      1826. 1 S. 4to. 13 Notenzeilen betitelt "Rondeñas Cancion Andaluza", mit vier Strophen Text: "Seras dueña de mi vida I si sabes corresponder I solo siento tu mudanza I porque al fin eres mujer [...]". - Der früh verwaiste Eckert wurde von dem Dichter Friedrich Förster adoptiert, der ihm eine umfassende musikalische Ausbildung im Klavier-, Violin- und Hornspiel ermöglichte. 1826 erregte er als Wunderkind Aufsehen und war seit 1832 Altist an der Berliner Singakademie; 1834 gab er sein Debüt als Dirigent, zwei Jahre später als Violinist. Sein Studium schloß er in Leipzig bei Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy ab. Nach Studienreisen durch Europa und Amerika, die ihn u. a. nach Italien und als Kapellmeister an die Pariser Italienische Oper führten, wurde er 1853 in Wien Kapellmeister, 1858 technischer Direktor der Hofoper. - Mit schönem Siegel.
