      A New General Atlas. Edinburgh: Printed by Ben Stark for John Thomson. 1827. - Copper engraving. Original outline colour. Size: 60 x 49 cm. (23½ x 19½ inches). Slightly darkened centrefold. Fine condition. Handsome map of the Mediterranean, with seven inset maps of some important harbours - Marseilles, Genoa, Gibraltar, Leghorn (Italy) Algiers and Smyrna (Turkey). The insets have soundings, and two - Gibraltar and Algiers - have plans of naval battles. The New General Atlas was one of the most accurate and best produced atlases of the day. John Thomson's 'County Atlas of Scotland' is generally considered the finest of its kind.

        Chateaux et Monumens des Pays-Bas Faisant suite au Voyage pittoresque, dédié à S.A.R. la Princesse d'Orange.

      Jobard Frères, Bruxelles 1827 - Two volumes, each in a marbled paper slipcase, oblong 4to. Magnificently decorated later (1860's) full morocco bindings. Boards and spines richly gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt inner dentelles. All edges marbled and the edges of the boards tooled in gilt. Overall in an absolutely fine condition with the vast majority of the plates in pristine condition. Often it is assumed that this book is complete with 202 plates, probably based on the last number in the index of volume II, however, a complete copy should contain 205 lithographs. The text pages are unnumbered, but after collation all plates are accounted for in the text, so we consider the text to be complete as well. The plates of these castles and views are particularly attractive because of the vivid figures depicted here; walking, viewing or carrying out other activities in the direct vicinity of these mansions and sites. The lithographs in these volumes are by or after A. van Afferden, Bertrand, Colleye, T.S. Cooper, Goetgebuer, van Hemelryck, Jobard, Kreins, C.V. Labarge, Lemaître, de Looze, Madou, de Marbaix, Mogford, Moreau, Pingret, Roux, C.H. Smith, C.A. Snoeck and Sturm. An absolutely stunning beautiful copy of an uncommon book.

The performance took place on March 21, 1826... [Matthias Artaria] had purchased the publishing rights of the Quartett and after the performance he went to Beethoven with the suggestion that he write a new finale and that the fugue be published as an independent piece... Beethoven complied, and the original finale was subsequently published as Op. 133." Thayer-Forbes: Beethoven, pp. 974-975.

        Giardino Nella Reggia Di Minosse Nell'Isola De Creta

      Milan - Aquatint engraving with original hand color. Ca. 1827. Sheet size: 15 x 18 1/4". Inventory#: p505pmat. "Questa scena fu esequita pel Ballo mitologico, Dedalo, inventato, e posto sulle scene dell'I. R. Teatro alla Scala dal Sig. Salvatore Vigano. Il Carnevale dell'Anno 1818." As opera reached a height of popularity and innovation in early 19th-century Italy, stage sets and scenery were increasingly viewed as art forms unto themselves. Enterprising artists and designers competed to create the most lavish, evocative, and visually engaging opera settings, and were so successful that their stage sets often competed with the performances themselves for an audience's attention and appreciation. Public criticism of various operas often revolved as much around the quality of the set designs as the beauty of the music, and audiences became increasingly discerning about the visual aspects of grand performances. Reflecting this tendency, Alessandro Sanquirico, a Milanese artist, was inspired to document the most striking sets at Italy's most celebrated opera house, La Scala in Milan. Sanquirico's vividly colored, masterfully drafted aquatint engravings capture the sumptuousness and sheer spectacle of these extravagant sets, often including costumed singers in the midst of a concert, and at the same time the artist brings the excitement of the performance to life in these remarkably vibrant illustrations. 0

      [Paris]: Lith. de Delpech, [1827]. - Handcolored lithograph, 13 1/2 x 10 1/2 inches. Lightly soiled, a bit of wear at the corners. Very good. Matted. A magnificent handcolored lithograph depicting three of the six Osage Indians that visited France in 1827. Their famed visit had a profound impact on French attitudes towards the tribe, many current members of which were the result of relations between French pioneers and Osage women. The six Indians, consisting of four warriors and two squaws, were quickly dubbed a "prince," "princesses," and "warriors" by the French press. Numerous publications were published in conjunction with the visit, as were a handful of prints. This print depicts three members of the group - two men and a woman. They are shown from the chest or waist up - spaced in an impressionistic style and not in a conventional pose. Kishagashugah, depicted on the right, was an Osage chief inspired by a tradition that his ancestor had visited Paris. He is shown holding a club and wearing a large medallion around his neck. Also depicted are a woman, Gretomih (at left) and Minckchatahooh, another warrior (below). This and most other images of the group portray the Indians as objects of fascination. It is clear this print was produced separately and not intended to accompany any text. The lithograph was drawn by Francois Delpech after a painting by Louis Boilly. We know of one other lithograph after Boilly of the Osages, numbered "90" (the present print is numbered "89"), but we are unaware of any other images of the Osages created by Boilly beside those two. We are able to locate only three other copies of this rare print - at the Newberry Library, Yale, and the American Philosophical Society. OCLC 41672603, 61658013.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Wien, 29. I. 1827. - 2 SS. 4to. An Franz Xaver von Peball, den Verweser des Kommunitäts-Radwerks Nr. VI in Vordernberg (Steiermark): "Sie werden durch meinen Verläßlichen Treuen Comissionar neuerdings etwas zu lesen bekommen haben, es ist der Entwurf einer Vereinigungs Urkunde - ich bitte dieselbe zu prüfen und mir nur zu bemerken ob ich nicht vielleicht etwas vergessen habe - das was da steht ist von mir nach beyziehung Verständiger Juristen zu Papier gebracht worden - Für deranden [d. i. Vorderhand] ist diese Sache den übrigen noch nicht mitzutheilen, denn die Mägen sind nicht stark genug so viel auf einmal zu Verdauen; so bald ich das Gesuch an S. Majestät erhalte werde ich einen Aufsatz zugleich Allerhöchst demselben zu dessen alleiniger Wissenschaft überreichen, welchen ich ihnen auf dem persönlichen Weege auch zu Ihrer alleinigen Kenntnis zusende [-] da er zu wahr ist und manches so darstellet wie es ist folglich manchen nicht Schmecken würde - allein hier blieb mir nichts anderes zu thun übrig wenn ich einen Erfolg bewirken wollte [.] Jetzt nähert sich der Tag der Gößer licitation[,] ich kann nicht mehr sagen als ich schon gesaget - und wiederhole nur das früher Erinnerte - die Deputate sollen auf alles gefaßt seyn, sich durch nichts abschrecken lassen - und Göß auf jeden Falle erstehen [.]". - 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 „Steiermärkisch-Ständische Montanlehranstalt", gegründet wurde, die 1849 nach Leoben verlegt werden sollte und aus der 1904 die „Montanistische Hochschule" und 1975 die „Montanuniversität Leoben" hervorging. - Stark gebräunt und mit größeren Einrissen und Läsuren (hierdurch insbes. im unteren Drittel der Recto-Seite größerer Buchstabenverlust in einigen Zeilen).

        Alessandro Volta. Engraved portrait By Rados after Focosi.

      L. Rados, Milan 1827 - Volta, Alessandro (1745-1827). Engraved portrait by Luigi Rados (1773-1840) after Roberto Focosi. Milan: presso l'Editore Proprietario Luigi Rados, 1828. 490 x 347 mm. Small repairs to margins, some faint stains, otherwise very good. This fine portrait, engraved after Volta's death, shows him seated at a table, his left hand inside his coat and his right resting on the table, with an example of his "crown of cups" battery at his right and a Voltaic pile behind him. A 7-line caption in Italian gives a brief resume of Volta's achievements. Volta, the inventor of the first electric battery, published his first paper on it in the Phil. Trans. in 1800; his investigations proved the identity of Galvani's "animal" electricity with the electricity generated by his apparatus. The Voltaic pile made possible the experiments leading to the decomposition of water, electro-deposition of metal, and creation of the electro-magnet, initiating the electrical age. Benezit for the engraver.

        HIGH STREET CANTERBURY Drawn on stone by T.S. Cooper.

      Canterbury: Henry Ward, 14, Sun Street. Printed by C. Hullmandel. [1827] - Hand-coloured lithograph. Image size 13 inches x 10.5 inches. Good clear impression. Mounted in acid-free card. This is one of the 'Six Views in Canterbury' drawn by Cooper and one of the few topographical works that he produced. This version has been lightly coloured to highlight the interesting details of the Paris and London Royal Mail coach and its passengers outside the Coach and Wagon Office at the George and Dragon. The view is towards King's Bridge and the Weavers with St Peter's Street beyond, leading to the Westgate. The lithographs were published by Ward in Canterbury and printed and sold by Hullmandel in London and by various booksellers in Kent. Thomas Sidney Cooper of Canterbury (1803-1902) was a celebrated and accomplished painter of livestock, especially cattle. A fine example of this scarce Canterbury street scene.

        Tabletop Still Life

      - Paul Lacroix (1827-1869) Tabletop Still Life Oil on canvas Signed lower right 32” x 24”; 39 ½” x 31” framed This grand still life, which depicts lush fruits displayed on a tabletop arranged with grapevines and a glass of wine, is by the artist Paul Lacroix. This tribute to abundance reflects themid-19th century optimism and economic wealth of America. Educated Americans of this period were developing awareness and tastes for European works, such as late-17th century and early-18thcentury Dutch still-life paintings. The prolific 19th century American painter, Severin Roesen, developed his own variation of still-life painting and had a large following for his work. Lacroix's and Roesen's careers overlapped in New York, and it is thought that Lacroix was the talent behind many of Roesen's paintings as differences in the artist's work are indiscernible in some cases. This is further supported by the fact that Lacroix's name is mentioned only after Roesen left New York for Pennsylvania. Even though Lacrox's talent was as abundant as his subjects, much is unknown about the life of this artist. He was known to be of French/Swiss origin, immigrated to the United States in the late 1840s, and was active between 1858-1869. Sadly, current known works of Lacroix only account for a few short years, and his whereabouts after 1869 are not fully known. LaCroix exhibited at the National Academy of Design and the Brooklyn Art Association during his lifetime, and his works are currently in the collections of New Britain Museum of American Art, CT; Holyoke Museum, MA; Brooklyn Museum and Lyman Allyn Museum, CT.

Part of his scientific collection was lost but he managed to save an enormous quantity. The account of the expedition and the botanical surveys he published are comparable to the work of Humboldt" (Barba de Moraes)."Der sächsische Botaniker Poeppig lebte schon einige Jahre in den Vereinigten Staaten, bevor er Ende 1826 in Baltimore zu einer Südamerikareise aufbrach. Er reiste allein durch verschiedene Provinzen von Chile, dann durch Peru, bestieg der Vulkan Antuco und überquerte von Lima aus die Anden. Zwei Jahre verbrachte er bei den Indianern in Maynas. Im zweiten Band berichtet er über seine Flossfahrt auf dem Huallaga, Marañon und Amazonas bis Parà, wo er Ende April 1831 eintraf" (Brasilien-Bibliothek der Robert Bosch GMBH).The fine large plates are by Joseph Anton Sedlmayr, Joh. Nepomuk Ott and Ignaz Bergmann after drawings by Poeppig.The two text vols have considerable foxing and occasional waterstaining, and do not contain the folded map as well as the sheet of music (lacking in most copies). The atlas volume is very fine showing charming South American sceneries.Barba de Moraes p. 681; Sabin 63 629; Robert Bosch 411. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      [New York]: John Hill, 1827.. Aquatint with hand-coloring. Sheet size: 17 1/2 x 22 1/2 inches. Minor toning and light wear. Closed tear to top half of sheet, near center; closed tear repaired with tissue in left margin. Minor loss in center of image. Good. Handsome image of the monument erected to honor the Baron De Kalb, who was killed at the Battle of Camden, South Carolina, during the Revolutionary War. The monument was erected in front of the Presbyterian Church in Camden, and the cornerstone laid by General Lafayette, who was De Kalb's protege and fellow general during the war. The aquatint shows the church, with the monument in the right- center. A couple with a small dog stand before the monument, the man pointing with his cane and presumably explaining the importance of the monument to the woman. " Camden Kalb achieved immortality. Positioned on the American right, he and his regulars were exposed when the militia forces under Gates on the left and center collapsed and fled. Surrounded by superior forces, Kalb resisted stubbornly and mounted three assaults in an attempt to break the British lines. He sustained eleven wounds and died at Camden, having earned the apotheosis he sought. To a British officer who consoled him in his last hours, Kalb said, 'I thank you for your generous sympathy, but I die the death I always prayed for - the death of a soldier fighting for the rights of man'" - ANB. This very rare print was executed by John Hill, the foremost aquatint artist to work in the United States, and creator of the famed HUDSON RIVER PORTFOLIO. Any of Hill's individual productions are rare. There are very few prints of Southern subjects from this early a date. STAUFFER 1327.

The original Jamaican Nembhard was Dr John Nembhard (1711-1777).I quote Mabel: 'according to family tradition Dr. Nembhard was Dutch and descended from a famous general; some say he was a natural son of Prince Eugene of Savoy, who certainly was at The Hague from Nov. 1710 to Jan. 1711.' Dr John developed the Konigsberg estate in St Mary's, Jamaica, and made a considerable fortune. The Jamaican estates stayed in the family until the 1830's, but were then sold at low prices as sugar prices collapsed and the use of slave labour became illegal.The Nembhards mostly returned to England).

        Nouvel Almanach des Gourmands, servant de guide dans les moyens de faire excellente chère. Dédié au Ventre. Par A.B. de Périgord. Première année [Deuxième année] [Troisième année]

      Paris: Baudouin Frères, 1825-1827 - A dozen years after the final volume of the celebrated Almanach des Gourmands of Grimod de la Reynière, Horace Raisson and Léon Thiessé initiated a new annual dedicated to the pleasures of the table and the stomach. It ran three years and contains reviews of restaurants and hotels, provisioners and wine merchants, recipes. Raisson was a prolific author whose subsequent works on gastronomy and etiquette were translated into English, Spanish, and Swedish, and did much to spread the fame of French cookery. The third year was edited by Thiessé alone. The three frontispieces depict "L'inspiration du gourmand," "Le premier devoir du gourmand," and "Promenade du gourmand." The excellent gastronomical map shows the diversity of French agricultural and wine-making regions. The prospectus praises Grimod de la Reynière and calls for samples to be submitted for review: 'since conscientious gourmands can only speak of that which they have seen, felt, and tasted, news, documents, samples, and "légitimations," in short, everything relevant to the Almanach des Gourmands - will be subitted to the appreciation of the enlightened jury, and then scrupulously announced, described, and judged in future annuals.' Notable in the second volume is a somewhat scoffing notice of Brillat Savarin's Physiologie du gout, which is deemed to be somewhat over long. The tone changes dramatically, for in the third volume is a contemporary biographical notice and elegy of Brillat Savarin, who died in 1826, not long after publication of his celebrated work. An interesting work from a key period in French gastronomy. Copies of the first year of this annual are found in institutional collections; the later years are quite scarce: complete sets at NYPL; Lilly, with the first year in second edition, lacking the map. The Bibliothèque National does not locate the second year (GASTRONOMY) First edition, all published. 3 vols., 18mo. Each volume with frontispiece and engraved Carte gastronomique de la France (folded). Prospectus bound in at front of vol. I. Pp. [iv], iv, xxiv, 234, [221]- 224; [xx], 264; [xx], 246. Modern boards.

      Printed for Harding & Lepard, London 1827 - The Wardington Copy, in Fine Morocco, ofDibdin's Standard Guide to the Classics. 292 x 197 mm (11 1/2 x 7 3/4"). Two volumes. Fourth Edition. HANDSOME EARLY 20TH CENTURY BROWN STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO, covers with gilt double fillet border, fleuron cornerpieces, raised bands, spines richly gilt with panels dominated by a bold and complex quatrefoil incorporating spade-like tools and with palmette cornerpieces, turn-ins with two gilt fillets, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. With a facsimile of Greek and Latin text from the Complutensian Polyglot and volume I with a specimen leaf laid down, as called for (the leaf taken from the 1826 Pickering Diamond miniature edition of the New Testament). A Large Paper Copy. Front pastedowns with engraved armorial bookplate of John William Pease; rear pastedown with vellum armorial bookplate of Lord Wardington. Lowndes I, 639; Brunet II, 684 ("Édition la plus complète et la meilleure"); Graesse I, 382. A touch of rubbing to tail edge of boards, one leaf with a thin band of soiling along four inches of the fore edge, light glue stain at lower corner of specimen leaf, endpapers with faint fox spots (isolated minor foxing elsewhere), other trivial imperfections, but generally A VERY FINE COPY, the text clean and fresh, with vast margins, and the decorative bindings with no significant wear. This is the extremely attractive Wardington copy of the fourth and best edition of this quotable bibliographical classic. It is more heavily weighted than the earlier printings toward the Bible and the early Church Fathers and, because of the presence of the Pickering specimen leaf, it also qualifies as the earliest example to our knowledge of a leaf book. This was Dibdin's first work as a bibliographer, and it quickly became the standard guide in English to editions of the classics. Its favorable notice brought him a position as Lord Spencer's librarian, along with ecclesiastical preferment, and he was consequently allowed to pursue his bibliographic career without financial worries. Spencer invited him not only to catalogue, but also to add to, the library at Althorp, and Dibdin (1776-1847) turned it into the finest library in private hands in England. Our impressive Large Paper Copy comes from another of England's fine private libraries, the collection of Lord Wardington (1924-2005), who was, successively, Chairman, Vice-President, and then President of the Friends of the British Library. His grandfather, John William Pease, was a member of the Northumberland banking and business family who amassed a substantial library, and Lord Wardington added greatly to it, particularly important Bibles and atlases. The recent Wardington sales in London have been major bibliophilic events. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      London Harding & Lepard 1827 - Two octavo volumes. xiii, 562; 579pp. Fourth edition, greatly enlarged and corrected. Inscribed by the book collector and businessman Albert M. Todd of Kalamazoo, Michigan, to noted librarian William Warner Bishop, who was head of the Bentley Historical Library at the University of Michigan from 1915-1941 and president of the American Library Association from 1918-1919. In the inscription, Todd writes, "To my dear friend William Warner Bishop who has aided me so greatly with his advice on selecting many valuable books for my library." Todd's travels in Europe as a young man inspired a lifelong passion for collecting rare books. He established the Rare Book Room at Kalamazoo College's Upjohn Library, and much of his collection of books was donated to the library by his family. With a facsimile plate of Complutensian Polyglot as a frontispiece to the first volume. The fourth edition of Dibdin is considered the best and most complete and is a valuable reference resource for collectors, scholars, and librarians alike. Bound in quarter calf and green paper-covered boards, with horizontal blind rules across the spine and gilt dots on either side of these rules, in an Arts & Crafts style. Some offsetting to title page of volume one from the frontispiece plate, margins of covers lightly sunned, some light spotting and rubbing to spines, slight split between endpaper and half-title page and also between the final two pages in volume one, collector's notes in pencil to blank leaf at end of volume one, else a very nice set with notable provenance.

      Philadelphia: Atkinson & Alexander; Samuel Coate Atkinson. 1827, 1828. First. Elephant folios. Two bound volumes of this weekly Philadelphia newspaper for the years 1827 and 1828. Volume 6: Whole Nos. 284-335 (January 6th-December 29th, 1827). Lacks the issue of January 20th, else complete. Contemporary three quarter dark red morocco and marbled paper boards. Scuffing to the leather, a bump to the top right corner of the text pages, moderate scattered foxing and some staining, overall good or better. Volume 7: Whole Nos. 336-387 (January 5th-December 27th, 1828). Complete. Full dark blue cloth, gilt spine title. Ex-library, with a bookplate on the front pastedown. Moderate scattered foxing and toning throughout, issue no. 354 detached with scattered small tears along the foredge, else very good. Each weekly issue consists of four pages. The Post was founded in 1821, and traces its roots back to Benjamin Franklin's Pennsylvania Gazette. Volume 6 (1827) contains the first printed appearance in the March 10th issue of the puzzle poem "Enigma," attributed to Edgar Allan Poe, and "Psalm 139th," published by Poe's older brother William Henry Poe in the February 3rd issue. Volume 6 and the accompanying Volume 7 for 1828 are also notable for the numerous articles by Philadelphia's famous polymath Constantine Samuel Rafinesque. Like Poe, he was recognized by his peers as an eccentric genius. Rafinesque made important contributions to botany, philology, and natural history. He published more than 6,700 binomial names of plants, and his theory relating to the gradual evolution of differing plant species through minute changes in response to environmental stimuli was acknowledged by Darwin. His series of illustrated botanical sketches, The School of Flora, first appeared in the January 6th issue of 1827. A total of 42 sketches were published that year in the weekly issues through January 5th, 1828. A new series commenced in the January 19th issue of 1828, with a total of 22 sketches published in weekly issues throughout 1828. A scarce set, featuring two early items of Poeana, and the first printed appearances of extensive contributions by Rafinesque. Further details available upon request. .

        Diritto Romano ad uso di Gio. Battista Speroni. 1827.

      - Due volumi di cm. 28,5, pp. 481; 706 (1) (14). Solida ed elegante legatura coeva in mezza pelle, dorsi lisci con fregi e titoli in oro su tasselli. Ottima conservazione ed in grafia abbastanza leggibile. Si tratta di un manoscritto ad uso dello studente G.B. Speroni che riporta l'intero corso di Diritto Romano svolto all'Università di Pavia nell'anno accademico 1826-27. Il nome del professore appare stampato ai dorsi e si tratta sicuramente di Ignazio Beretta (1779 – 1847) il quale, dopo aver ricoperto per supplenza diverse cattedre, si insedia stabilmente in quella di Diritto romano combinato con l'antico statutario e diritto feudale, conservandone la titolarità sino al giorno della sua morte, il 27 giugno 1847. E' interessante notare come in questo periodo l'insegnamento universitario venisse strettamente controllato dall'Aulica Commissione di Vienna che imponeva il rispetto dell'ABGB (Österreich Allgemeines Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch). Molti insegnanti cercavano di svincolarsi da tali imposizioni. Al Beretta, prediletto dalle autorità per l'illibatezza dei costumi, fu consentito nel magistero di diritto romano di adottare le Leggi civili di Domat, nella traduzione di Padovani. Egli stesso, però, durante le lezioni del 1826-27, indica ai propri studenti quale giurista di riferimento per lo studio del diritto romano, oltre all'approvato Domat, il piemontese Richeri, contravvenendo probabilmente agli ordini superiori. Nelle sue lezioni richiama il diritto romano continuando quell'impostazione comparatistica che in età napoleonica aveva fin da subito caratterizzato la prima esperienza di insegnamento del codice civile. Giardini prima di lui aveva insegnato i Paratitla in Codicem Civilem Austriacum. In sostanza si può affermare che il periodo d'insegnamento di Ignazio Beretta marca il passaggio fra l'insegnamento del diritto romano con il nuovo diritto civile dei codici. Cfr. Elisabetta D'Amico: La facoltà giuridica pavese dalla riforma francese all'Unità (in: Annali di Storia delle Università italiane - Volume 7 - 2003).

[this] luxuriantly detailed memoir was published only in 1827. The delay was possibly due to its length . Cauchy thought nothing of hurling massive works of from 80 to 300 pages at the Academy or the Polytechnique to be printed out of their stinted funds . As if to show that he was not limited to first-rate work in pure mathematics Cauchy next captured the Grand Prize offered by the Academy in 1816 for a "theory of the propagation of waves on the surface of a heavy fluid of indefinite depth" - ocean waves are close enough to this type for mathematical treatment’ (Ball, Men of Mathematics, pp. 321-22). ‘His results are now classics in hydrodynamics’ (DSB).Sandwiched between Cauchy’s papers is Damioseau’s Mémoire sur la théorie de la lune - no squib either at some 200 pages. There is a crater on the moon named after him.
