        Die galvanische Kette, mathematisch bearbeitet

      One folding engraved plate. iv, 245 pp. (lacking the errata leaf & leaf of ads). 8vo, cont. grey paste-paper boards (lower joint with short split at head & foot). Berlin: T.H. Riemann, 1827. First edition, and a splendid association copy, of this pioneering work which contains one of the most important discoveries in electrical science -- "Ohm's law" -- the basis of the present system of electrical measurement. Ohm discovered the unit of resistance in an electrical current. This copy belonged to the "Prince of Mathematicians" -- Carl Friedrich Gauss -- and has the "Gauss-Bibliothek" stamp on the title. It is quite exciting to be able to link two of the greatest 19th-century scientists through an important book like this. "In the field of electrical measurement Ohm was the great pioneer...Ohm's great contribution -- 'The Galvanic Chain Mathematically Calculated' -- was to measure the rate of current flow and the effects of resistance on the current. 'Ohm's law' -- that the resistance of a given conductor is a constant independent of the voltage applied or the current flowing -- was arrived at theoretically by analogy with Fourier's heat measurements (1800-14)."-Printing & the Mind of Man 289. It is known that the publisher was forced to pulp most of the copies of this book due to lack of sales. A very fine and fresh copy. Lacking the errata leaf (it clearly was never bound-in) and, as usual, the leaf of ads. With the stamp of the Royal Observatory at Göttingen on free front endpaper (with release stamp facing on the front paste-down endpaper) and title. ❧ Dibner, Heralds of Science, 63. Horblit 81.

        Germanos. "Germanos Archbishop of Palaion (old) Patras

      Philhellenic: London & Paris " now in course of Publication...by A Friedal, sold by the principal Book & Printsellers in Town & Country." 1827. Coloured lithograph portrait of Germanos from the fourth edtion of Friedals "Series of Greek Portraits (4th part)" verso blank. Original old colour. Printed signature in Greek. Text in English and French. Portrait of Metrolopis Germanos of Patras, with full background . Georgios Ioannou Kozias, 1771-1826 In 1818 he became a member of the "Society of Friends" (Filiki Hetairia), which was seeking independence for the Greek nation from the Ottoman yoke. On March 13 1821, a Sunday, Germanos blessed the standard during the liturgy at Agia Lavra Monastery in Achaea, and on March 25 1821, blessed the fighters at Agia Lavra and hoisted the flag of the Greek War of Independence in St. George's Square at Patrai. Germanos left Greece in 1822 for Italy, in an abortive mission hoping to obtain aid and support for the war effort from the Pope and the European Congress at Verona, but returned in 1824 without having seen him. Brightly colour, margins evenly toned with light spotting. Adam [de] Friedal, there is much confusion about Friedal's origins, He is supposed to be a Danish Phihellene and apparently passed himself off as a Baron. St Clair tells us that Friedal carried a lithographic press on his back whilst in Greece where he seems to have been between 1821-24.. He was at Missolonghi for a while with Lord Byron and married the sister of one of Byron's artificers, John Hodges. Byron wrote a letter introducing Friedal to the notice of the London Greek Commitee. Friedal returned and settled in London and produced his first portrait of Mavrocordato dated September 1824. "The Greeks. Twenty-four Portraits (In Four Parts Of Six Portraits Each,) of the Principal Leaders and Personages Who Have Made Themseves Most Conspicuous in the Greek Revolution.." 1st edition 1824. thereafter there are a number of editions, with differences to the portraits. The portraits in the 1st Edition, probably after Friedal's original drawings are fairly primitive, with each new edition they became more refined. A second edition of the first 2 parts was issued in 1826. Some of these plates are marked 'second edition', others merely have anew date on the plate surface. In most cases a completely new portrait replaces that of the previous ediion; parts 3 & 4 are unchanged. In 1827 two editions appeared with the imprint "London and Paris, 1827", some on India paper. one in which the portraits had no, or a very simple background, the other with full complex backgrounds. A French edition appeared the same year. In 1828-9 Dean & Munday brought out another series of Friedal plates, some but not all marked 'fourth edition', their most distinguishing feature being that they are full length. They re- issued a number of plates in 1830, marked fifth and sixth edition. There exist wrappers for a 'sixth edition 'appearing in 1832. [Navari].

      London, J. L. Cox, 1827. - 4to. (4), 308, (4) pp. Original boards, rebacked. First edition of Marsden's monumental collection catalogue. The distinguished oriental scholar William Marsden (1754-1836), born in Verval, county Wicklow, Ireland, was the son of a shipping merchant and banker.

After eight years' service abroad, he resigned his East India Company position and returned to England, and later held a post in the Admiralty. He soon became acquainted with Sir Joseph Banks and the leading literary men of the day, and was elected a member of the Royal Society and other learned bodies. Marsden presented his collection of over 3400 oriental coins to the British Museum in 1834 and his library of books and manuscripts to King's College, in 1835. His publications include: 'History of Sumatra', 1783, 'Dictionary of the Malayan Language', 1812 & 'Grammar of the Malayan Language', 1812. - Occasional spotting, binding slightly stained.

        An Inquiry into the History, Authenticity, & Characteristics of the Shakspeare Portraits,

      London: by the author, and sold by all booksellers,, 1827. in which the criticisms of Malone, Steevens, Boaden, & others, are examined, confirmed, or refuted. Embracing the Felton, the Chandos, the Duke of Somerset's pictures, the Droeshout print, and the monument of Shakspeare, at Stratford; together with an exposé of the spurious pictures and prints. [With supplement.] Octavo (207 × 135 mm), in 2 parts, the supplement with separate title. Mid 19th-century red half calf, contrasting green labels, low raised bands attractively gilt, marbled sides, blue-green endpapers, red sprinkled edges. Engraved frontispiece of the Stratford monument, 20 engraved plates. A little stripping to one corner, one plate (the Gilliland portrait) torn across and repaired, else a very good copy. First edition, published three years after James Boaden's work on the same subject. Wivell had risen from impoverished beginnings and an apprenticeship to a wigmaker and hairdresser, before reaching public notice as an artist with portraits of the Cato Street conspirators awaiting trial. This led to a commission to draw portraits of the participants in the "trial" of Queen Caroline in the House of Lords, thence to abundant portrait commissions from the royal family, the aristocracy, and leading theatrical figures. This publication, however, brought his prosperity to a sudden end, as its sales failed to cover the expense of producing the plates, reducing Wivell "from affluence to comparative poverty" (Art Journal, 206). He was rescued by an uncle's legacy and his own ingenuity, subsequently inventing a rope fire escape that was credited with saving hundreds of lives. Jaggard notes that the edition size was 500 copies, of which 50 had plates on India paper and 25 were printed on large paper.

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.

The fourth edition of Dibdin is considered the best and most complete and is a valuable reference resource for collectors, scholars, and librarians alike.

William Hogarth (10 November 1697 - 26 October 1764) was an English painter, printmaker, pictorial satirist, social critic, and editorial cartoonist who has been credited with pioneering western sequential art. His work ranged from realistic portraiture to comic strip-like series of pictures called " modern moral subjects". Knowledge of his work is so pervasive that satirical political illustrations in this style are often referred to as " Hogarthian." [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        HISTORIA CHRONOLOGICA, E CRITICA DA REAL ABADIA DE ALCOBAÇA,

      - da Congregação Cisterciense de Portugal, para servir de continuação á Alcobaça Illustrada do Chronista Mor Fr. Manoel dos Sanctos. Por Fr. Fortunato de S. Boaventura, Monge de Alcobaça, e Chronista Geral da Ordem de S. Bernardo. Lisboa, na Impressão Regia. Anno 1827. In folio (de 29x21 cm) com xliii, 188, 84, [vii] pags. Encadernação de meados do século xx, inteira de pele com finos ferros a ouro na lombada. Corte das folhas carminado. Exemplar com 2 ex-libris. Inocêncio II, 309 e IX, 236: ?D. Fr. Fortunato de S. Boaventura, foi natural da vila de Alcobaça, e de família honrada, mas pouco abundante de bens, pois me dizem que seu pai exercia ali a profissão de livreiro. Devia nascer pelos anos de 1778, a serem exactas as informações dadas por seu irmão, que diz contar ele ao tempo do falecimento 66 anos de idade. Professou a regra de S. Bernardo no mosteiro da sua pátria em 1795. Passou a Coimbra, para aí frequentar os estudos preparatórios, e matriculando se depois no curso teológico da Universidade, recebeu o grau de Doutor naquela faculdade. Destinando se ao magistério, foi primeiramente professor no colégio das Artes, e depois subiu a Lente de Teologia, em cujo exercício esteve por alguns anos. O sr. D. Miguel, querendo premiar a devoção que ele lhe dedicava e aproveitar os seus talentos, o nomeou em 27 de Agosto de 1831 Reformador Geral dos Estudos, e a 29 de Setembro do mesmo ano Arcebispo de Évora, sendo confirmado pelo Sumo Pontífice Gregorio XVI, e sagrado a 3 de Junho de 1832. Tomou posse da cadeira metropolitana da referida cidade, que governou pouco tempo, pois teve de ausentar-se do reino em Junho de 1834, restabelecido o governo constitucional, do qual sempre se mostrára intrépido e implacável adversário, combatendo as doutrinas liberais de palavra e por escrito, durante mais de dez anos consecutivos. Refugiando se na Itália, assentou em Roma a sua residência; de onde saía contudo nos estios, precavendo se contra as febres que nessa quadra costumavam causar tamanhos estragos naquela cidade. O estudo e trabalhos literários, que nunca abandonava, lhe subministravam unicamente algum lenitivo, servindo-lhe de conforto, para passar menos atribulados os dias de uma vida angustiada, qual não podia deixar de ser a sua em tal situação, vendo triunfar desafrontadamente na pátria princípios e doutrinas, contra as quais tão deveras se pronunciára! Morreu em 1844. Historia chronologica e critica da Real Abbadia de Alcobaça, da Congregação Cisterciense de Portugal, para servir de continuação á Alcobaça Illustrada do Chronista mór Fr. Manuel dos Sanctos. Lisboa, na Imp. Regia 1827. foi. de XLIII 188 91 pag. - Traz no principio um longo Parecer aprovatório da obra, pelo P. José Agostinho de Macedo, que ocupa as pag. III a XII. Ninguém duvidará de que este livro foi escrito com profunda investigação, e que nele transpira por toda a parte a erudição do seu autor: entretanto a verdade pede que se diga, que a disposição das matérias está algum tanto confusa e irregular; e que a crítica do escritor sofreu por vezes desvios, apresentando opiniões menos prováveis, levado do pensamento de engrandecer a sua congregação e os membros dela. Poderia demonstrar com exemplos a exactidão do que avanço; porém isso levar-nos-ia longe, e este artigo é já de si extenso em demasia? Location/localizacao: 3-A4-B-36

        Journal of an Officer in the King's German Legion:

      London: Henry Colburn,, 1827. comprising an Account of his Campaigns and Adventures in England, Ireland, Denmark, Portugal, Spain, Malta, Sicily, and Italy. Octavo (190 × 115 mm) Slightly later half calf on brown cloth boards by Carss and Co. of Glasgow, black morocco label. A little rubbed, bookplate of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders to the front pastedown, hinges a touch cracked, light toning, about very good. First edition in English, first published in German in Hanover the year previously. Hering was a surgeon with the KGL. He joined up when the French occupied Hanover in 1803, "leaving his homeland clandestinely and joining the newly-formed King's German Legion in England. Hering's account of how in August 1804 he made his way northwards via Gottingen, Hanover city and Hamburg to the small North Sea port of Husum conveys the impression that he was a young man leaving home for the first time. His experiences as an army-surgeon between 1804 and 1816 (when he returned to Germany) is the subject [of the journal], which also contains a short history of the German Legion. After spending eighteen months in England he was posted to Ireland, where he lived from April 1806 till June 1807. Later he went to Denmark, Portugal, Spain, Malta, Sicily and Italy. His accounts of all these places similarly deserve notice. About his life after retirement from the army he is silent. Hering died at Gottingen on 10 November 1832. As historical evidence Hering's narrative is of good quality. It was based on a series of letters written by him while serving abroad to a relative in Germany which on his return he found to be 'a complete journal of my twelve years' service.' [It] is therefore not a memoir but a contemporary record of events. As a medical man he had long periods of leisure and was better disposed than most to consider the world objectively" (Wood, Select Documents XLI, Irish Historical Studies, Vol. 25, No.99, 1987). Uncommon.

Borst 1543. – Seltene erste gedruckte Ausgabe der gesammelten Gedichte Walthers. Mit 100 Seiten Anmerkungen und kritischem Apparat. - Karl Lachmann gilt, neben Jacob Grimm und Johann Andreas Schmeller, als Mitbegründer der germanischen Philologie und als Nestor der wissenschaftlichen Textedition. Bei der Herausgabe mehrfach handschriftlich überlieferter Texte wollte er sich, eine exakte wissenschaftliche Methode anwendend, durch die Aufstellung und Priorisierung von Handschriftenstammbäumen/Überlieferungen dem Urtext nähern. „Es kam auch darauf an, nicht den elegantesten, sondern den ursprünglichsten Text zu gewinnen und mit unerbittlicher Consequenz alle Willkür, alle Glättung späterer Schreiber zu beseitigen. Die Orthographie suchte er so einzurichten, daß uns möglich würde mittelhochdeutsche Gedichte „so zu lesen, wie sie ein guter Vorleser in der gebildetsten Gesellschaft des 13. Jahrhunderts aus der besten Handschrift vorgetragen hätte“; daß insbesondere ohne Künstelei, ohne Ueberladung mit Accenten oder anderen Zeichen das Versmaß leicht erkannt würde und daß in der Regel Buchstaben, welche verschwiegen werden mußten, auch im Druck nicht erschienen.“ (Vgl. Lachmann, Karl“ von Wilhelm Scherer in: Allgemeine Deutsche Biographie, herausgegeben von der Historischen Kommission bei der Bayerischen Akademie der Wissenschaften, Band 17 (1883), S. 471–481.

The pamphlets each have their own titlepage and pagination, and comprise: replies to specific questions as to the extent of the Russian and Anglo-American activity and Mexico's own establishment there; a plan for the administration of the California missions; a plan for opening California to foreigners to encourage colonization there, including a diagram for surveying grants of land (this was the basis for the California land grant laws that remained in effect until the end of Mexican power in California); a similar plan for subsidized colonization by Mexican nationals; a proposed general system of laws for the better government of California; a plan for the province's rapid mercantile development; a proposed project for establishing direct trade between Monterey and the Pacific, as well as with the United States and British trade in those regions; proposed articles for a private "Compania Asiatico- Mexicana" to implement the above. Though not made directly into law, the Junta's plans served as a primary document from which the laws of California were drawn. BANCROFT, CALIFORNIA III:3-6, 21-23. BARRETT 1355. COWAN I, pp.124-36.

        Pappa Flesh. "Pappa Flesh. Late minister of War in the Greek Government

      Philhellenic: London & Paris " now in course of Publication...by A Friedal, sold by the principal Book & Printsellers in Town & Country." 1827. Coloured lithograph portrait of Papaflessas from the fourth edtion of Friedals "Series of Greek Portraits (4th part)" verso blank. Original old colour. Printed signature in Greek. Text in English and French. Portrait of Papaflessas in helmet with full background. Georgios Dimitrios Flessas ,1788–1825. From an early age Papaflesss came in to conflict with the Ottoman Turks, and was active in trying to raise resistence against them. Papaflessas traveled to several areas seeking support for a revolution against the Ottoman Empire. At Kalamata on March 21 1821 where he had arranged armed men around the city following the arrest of leading Greeks and clergy a Turkish sympathizer tried to leave the city and was killed, starting the war of Independence on March 21, 1821. In Mani a gathering of the captains of the rebels had decided to start the revolution on March 25, 1821, but received news on the 22nd that the fighting had already begun. The Greek War of Independence officially started on March 25, 1821. 1823, Papaflessas was named the Minister of Internal Affairs and the Chief of Police by the government of Prince Alexander Mavrocordato under the name Gregorios Dikaios, the name he had when was in Filiki Etairia. When Ibrahim Pasha invaded the Peloponnese in 1825 Realizing the great danger the nation was facing with the Ibrahim's invasion, he demanded the government grant amnesty to Kolokotronis and other political prisoners. This demand was refused and he appeared before the Executive Branch and Parliament to tell them he would go to Messinia alone to organize a resistance against Ibrahim, determined to return victorious or die in the battlefield. Papaflessas gathered 3,000 poorly armed men and went to the province of Pylia, Messinia, searching for the best spot to face Ibrahim's army coming out of the city of Pylos. He selected the hills of Maniaki in order for him to have a better view of the enemy's movements and there Papaflessas established three lines of defence. On June 1, 1825, Ibrahim's forces led by well-trained French officers attacked Papaflessas' defence lines. Most of the Greek troops lost their nerve, abandoned their positions, and fled. Papaflessas continued to fight the Egyptians with a small force of 800-1000 men loyal to him and his cause. Papaflessas knew that in choosing to face Ibrahim he would die on the battlefield. Papaflessas's defenses were ultimately broken by the heavy bombardment of Ibrahim's artillery and the repeated attacks of his infantry and cavalry. Fierce hand-to-hand fighting ended with the death of the last defender. After Papaflessa's death from a bullet in the chest, Ibrahim ordered that his body be cleaned of blood and dirt and tied to a tree. After a few minutes of looking at his foe, Ibrahim walked up to the corpse and kissed it on the cheek as a sign of extreme respect. In speaking of Papaflessas after his death, it is said that Ibrahim told his officers: "If Greece had ten heroes like him, it would not have been possible for me to undertake the military campaign against the Peloponnese". Brightly colour, margins evenly toned with light spotting. Adam [de] Friedal, there is much confusion about Friedal's origins, He is supposed to be a Danish Phihellene and apparently passed himself off as a Baron. St Clair tells us that Friedal carried a lithographic press on his back whilst in Greece where he seems to have been between 1821-24.. He was at Missolonghi for a while with Lord Byron and married the sister of one of Byron's artificers, John Hodges. Byron wrote a letter introducing Friedal to the notice of the London Greek Commitee. Friedal returned and settled in London and produced his first portrait of Mavrocordato dated September 1824. "The Greeks. Twenty-four Portraits (In Four Parts Of Six Portraits Each,) of the Principal Leaders and Personages Who Have Made Themseves Most Conspicuous in the Greek Revolution.." 1st edition 1824. thereafter there are a number of editions, with differences to the portraits. The portraits in the 1st Edition, probably after Friedal's original drawings are fairly primitive, with each new edition they became more refined. A second edition of the first 2 parts was issued in 1826. Some of these plates are marked 'second edition', others merely have anew date on the plate surface. In most cases a completely new portrait replaces that of the previous ediion; parts 3 & 4 are unchanged. In 1827 two editions appeared with the imprint "London and Paris, 1827", some on India paper. one in which the portraits had no, or a very simple background, the other with full complex backgrounds. A French edition appeared the same year. In 1828-9 Dean & Munday brought out another series of Friedal plates, some but not all marked 'fourth edition', their most distinguishing feature being that they are full length. They re- issued a number of plates in 1830, marked fifth and sixth edition. There exist wrappers for a 'sixth edition 'appearing in 1832. [Navari].
