        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Wien, 14. XI. 1827.

      1827. 1 S. und 2 Zeilen auf 1 Bl. 4to. An Franz Xaver von Peball, den Verweser des Kommunitäts-Radwerks Nr. VI in Vordernberg (Steiermark): "Das ist doch etwas ganz neues mitten in einem halben Jahre den Preis vermindern zu wollen, und ich bin froh daß die mehrheit der Stimmen dagegen war. Ich hatte darüber mit dem Vorsteher gesprochen und wir waren übereingekommen, nicht vor dem Jahreswechsel etwas zu thun, sondern wenn es die Umstände Erforderten erst nach dem neuen Jahre auf den Preis von 3 f M. M. oder höchstens auf 8 f. Papiergeld zu steigen dann aber wieder fest Jahrlang zu bleiben; mir scheint daß er ganz darauf vergessen hat - [D]ie Stimme der Gratzer Eisenhändler ist eine sehr befangene und diese könne nie unsere Richtschnur werden da ihre Geschäfte ihre frühere Bedeutenheit [!] verlohren [!] und für uns der Platz Wienn [!] weit wichtiger ist. Dieses ewige Schwanken schadet nur dem Hammer Gewerkes und dadurch den für uns nothwendigen schnelleren und wichtigeren Zahlungen. Ich verstehe nicht wie so plötzliche Entschlüße entstehen da doch die möglichen einzutrettenden Umstände von jedem der seine Rechnung führet und sich um Getreidepreise [etc.] bekümmert vorgesehen werden könne; ob nicht andere Ausgaben des Hauswesens eine plötzliche Klassensteigerung Erfordern daß will ich nicht beurtheilen. Recht gut ist es daß Sie in meinem Namen sich dieser Steigerung wiedersezten [!] [...]". - 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 (

        A discourse on the Poor Laws of England and Scotland, on the state of the poor of Ireland, and on emigration.

      London: James Ridgway. 1827. 8vo., vi + 127 + (1)pp., wanting the half-title, early 19th century half calf over marbled boards, neatly rebacked and lettered, with the armorial bookplate of Ferguson of Raith> on front pastedown. A very good copy. First edition: uncommon. Goldsmiths 25374. Williams II, p.236. Not in Kress. An interesting and substantial essay in the operation of the old Poor Laws. While generally the author considers the Poor Laws to be better than indiscriminate giving, he is highly critical of emigration policy as a tool in the poverty puzzle. 'Of all the hopeless schemes that have ever been suggested, of all the methods of trifling away a most urgent and important subject; none ever exceeded the attempt so often made, so often abandoned, and now revived, of relieving the distresses of a country, or the payers of poor rates, by a plan of emigration'. [p.71]. He challenges the morality of 'creating new hopes and new expectations in the people' which were likely to be unfulfilled. The author is evidently au fait with the recent thinking of others on the subject, including Malthus, Hume, Ustaritz, Newenham, Hodgskin, Adam Smith, Ricardo and McCulloch.

        Carte de l'achiplel des iles Gilbert..

      Paris: Arthus Bertrand, 1827. Fine.. Map measuring 610 x 440 mm. (sheet size). Delicately engraved chart of the Gilbert Islands in present-day Micronesia, from the official atlas of the French scientific expedition of 1822-1825 under the command of Louis-Isidor Duperrey. The Duperrey voyage is of great importance to the history of European contact with the indigenous peoples of Micronesia. It was also the first time accurate maps of the region were produced.The expedition left France in the Coquille in August 1822, and after venturing through the Pacific and stopping at New Zealand they reached the Gilbert islands in May 1824. Overall, the experience of French sailors and scientists of the Duperrey expedition in Micronesia was peaceful (so much so that two sailors chose to remain on the Chuuck islands rather than remain aboard the Coquille and return to Europe). This contact was greatly different to earlier landfalls made by the Spanish, which were characterised by violence and pillaging of the native villages.For a full description of Duperrey voyage in this region see Francis Hezel The First Taint of Civilization. A history of the Caroline and Marshall Islands in pre-Colonial days (pages 95-102).

        Narrative of Don Juan Van Halen's Imprisonment in the Dungeons of the Inquisition at Madrid, and His Escape in 1817 and 1818; to Which are Added His Journey to Russia, His Campaign with the Army of the Caucasus, and His Return to Madrid in 1821

      Henry Colburn, London 1827 - First edition in English. Two volumes, pp. xix, 380, with frontis portrait and two folding facsimiles; xv, 496. with frontis portrait, two folding panoramas, and folding sketch map of the Caucasus and Georgia. Contemporary marbled boards, rebacked with modern calf spine with gilt rules and red label. Edges and corners rubbed. Bindings sound, text with some foxing and offsetting. A Spaniard of Dutch heritage, Van Halen (1788-1864) entered the Spanish navy in 1803, sailing to Cuba and Mexico. In 1808 he became involved in the Peninsula Campaign, first fighting for the Spanish, then briefly joining the French after being taken prisoner, and finally returning to the Spanish side, boldly fooling the French into surrendering three forts by dressing as a French officer and presenting forged documents announcing a treaty. He received a promotion for this coup, but in 1817 fell victim to the Inquisition and was (according to his own account) imprisoned and tortured. Escaping to Russia, he spent 18 months as a colonel in the Caucasus Dragoon Regiment under General Yermalov in Tblisi, Georgia. Despite some likely fictional elements, this account of his adventures is generally regarded as based in truth. British traveler and scholar John Frederick Baddeley describes it as "one of the best of the early books of travel and adventure in the Caucasus" (Russian Conquest of the Caucasus, p. 123).

        Autograph letter draft. No place, 30. XII. 1827.

      1827. 4to. 20 pp. on sewn double leaves. To Philip Henry, 4th Earl Stanhope (1781-1855, later custodian of Kaspar Hauser), discussing the political situation in Europe after the Battle of Navarino, which led to Greek independence from Ottoman rule. Gentz, no disciple of Philhellenism, anticipates the importance of the Battle's outcome for the European balance of powers and deplores the roles played by the political forces of the Great Powers. Gentz writes to the Earl, whose enthusiasm for all things German irritated his English countrymen, in German, penning only a draft and leaving the fair copy to his secretary, as he assumes his own handwriting might pose a problem to the unaccustomed reader: "[...] Ich laße diesen Brief durch eine fremde, aber vollkommen sichre Hand schreiben, weil ich einmal weiß, daß deutsche Briefe Ihnen die liebsten sind, und doch besorge, daß Sie meine Hand mit etwas mehr Anstrengung als eine Kanzley-Schrift lesen möchten [...] Sie kehren, Mein Verehrter Lord, in einem höchst entscheidenden Augenblicke in Ihr Vaterland zurück. Nach allem, was sich in den letzten vier oder sechs Wochen in England zugetragen hat, scheint mir eine Ministerial-Revoluzion unvermeidlich. Die öffentliche Meynung spricht sich täglich stärker und drohender über das Attentat von Navarin, den Traktat von London, und die ganze verderbliche Politik, die diesen Traktat erzeugt hat, aus [...] Das alles hat in den letzten vier Wochen eine andre Gestalt angenommen. Ihre Minister hatten sich geschmeichelt, daß Oesterreich durch seinen Einfluß in Constantinopel die Türken zum Nachgeben bewegen, und daß ihnen dies einen Ausgang aus dem Labyrinth, in welches sie sich durch ein grundfalsches und verderbliches System verwickelt hatten, bereiten würde. Diese Aussicht schlug fehl. Obgleich unser Cabinet, mit altgewohnter Treue und Ehrlichkeit alle seine Kräfte anstrengte, um den letzten Bruch zu hintertreiben, so war doch, seit der Katastrophe von Navarin, und bey dem fortdauernden höchst unklugen und feindlichen Benehmen der drey Gesandten, nach dieser Katastrophe, jeder Versuch bey der Pforte fruchtlos. [...] Die französische Regierung ist die verachtetste, und die verächtlichste die es heute in Europa giebt. Hierüber sind alle Parteyen einig. Wie diese im Todeskampf begriffne, elende Regierung die Türkisch-Griechische Sache behandelt hat - wird man dereinst den Geschichtsschreibern kaum glauben [...] Für Rußland allein haben England und Frankreich gearbeitet, für Rußland allein den unseligen Tripel-Traktat unterzeichnet, für Rußland allein bey Navarin die Türkische Seemacht vertilgt [...] Der Weg nach der Hauptstadt des Türkischen Reiches ist jetzt dem Russen auf allen Seiten geöfnet [...] Und das alles setzt England für das lächerlichste aller Hirngespinste, für die sogenannte Befreyung der unwürdigsten Rebellen, die je die Sonne beschienen hat, aufs Spiel! It cannot be [...]". - An extensive letter draft with numerous autograph insertions, deletions, and changes. Later publication note by a different hand (c. 1870) at the top of f. 1r; a quote which Gentz omitted from the letter (obviously intending his secretary to supply the text) bears the later editor's pencil note: "Die Stelle fehlt". - Highly characteristic document of Gentz's judgment of the European situation at the moment of the birth of modern Greece: one of the most talented statesmen of his time proves great skill in appraising the political results for the Great Powers; at the same time, the letter gives evidence that a visionary evaluation of the Greek cause, so highly regarded by many contemporaries, was beyond Gentz's capacity or inclination. Printed in normalised orthography in: Schlesier, Gustav v. (ed.). Schriften von Friedrich von Gentz. Ein Denkmal. Vol. V (1840), p. 138-146.

        Mémoire sur les intégrales définies [AND] Mémoire sur la theorie de la propagation des ondes a la surface d'un fluide pesant.

      - Paris, Mémoires des Savans Étrangers, Academie des Sciences, 1827. 4to. In a fine contemporary full calf binding. Spine with five raised bands, red and black morocco title vignettes and gilt floral patterns; boards with dentelles; lightly red-speckled edges.l Two large and very important papers by Cauchy, contained in the first volume of the Mémoires. The most important paper is Cauchy's cornerstone essay on definite integrals. It is essential in the history of mathematics, partly laying the basis for the Cauchy-Riemann equations. "In 1814 he submitted to the French Academy the treatise on definite integrals that was to become the basis of the theory of complex functions. In 1816 he won a prize contest of the French Academy on the propagation of waves at the surface of a liquid; his results are now classics in hydrodynamics." (DSB) Cauchy's method was significant because of his departure from the traditional use of geometry to treat the definite integral. The theory was read to the Academy by Cauchy in 1814, but only published in 1827 in this volume on pp. 599-799 and includes the rapport, introduction, parts 1 and 2, and two supplements. The second paper, on the "propagation des ondes a la surface" is on pp. 3-313. This volume also contains a memoir on the "theorie de la lune" by Damoiseau. Provenance: pictorial bookplate of the Radcliffe Observatory (the astronomical observatory of the University of Oxford from 1773 until 1934) on the front pastedown. Some small, skilful repairs, doing justice to an unusually fine and elegant contemporary binding. DSB III, pp. 137-138. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The list names 159 subscribers of whom 59 took a "fine copy" (5 persons took 2 "fine" copies). "Alexander Stuart, Esq, Edinburgh" took a fine copy. In this context "fine" presumably means that the plates were coloured by hand. Shaw (1686?-1777), Church of Scotland minister and historian, "was a respected local historian who corresponded with many eminent figures ... Shaw was chiefly known for his History of the Province of Moray, published in 1775 and posthumously revised and republished in 1827 and 1882. During the early 1750s he also continued A Genealogical Dedication of the Family of Rose of Kilravock, written by Hew Rose in 1683-4 and printed in 1848. His 'Account of the family of Mackintosh', written in 1758, remained unpublished" [O.D.N.B.].

      Numerous illus. in the text (many full-page). 30 folding leaves. 8vo, orig. patterned wrappers (rubbed & a little worn), orig. block printed title label on upper cover, new stitching. N.p. [but probably Osaka]: 1827. First edition.

This work by Ota, a physician in Osaka, serves as the foundation of modern Anpuku therapy. "Anpuku," which means to "ease or calm the abdomen," is a massage therapy which can be traced back to the Nara and Heian periods in Japan (710-1185 A.D.). It is still practiced in Japan. The illustrations depict the therapist applying pressure to various parts of the body, pressure points, a baby receiving a massage, an expectant mother receiving a massage, a self-massage, the therapist massaging the breasts of a woman to stimulate her breast milk, etc. A very nice copy. .

      1827. XI, (1), 233, (1) pp. With a lithogr. frontispiece in original hand colour. Contemp. auburn calf with giltstamped rules to boards; leading edges gilt; spine rebacked. All edges gilt. 8vo. First edition of this account of a Middle Eastern civil servant's visit to Britain in 1765, translated from the original Persian manuscript by James Edward Alexander. Born in India, Itesa Modeen learned Persian and entered the service of the British. When Shah Alam wanted to send letters and gifts to King George III in England it was decided that these would be taken by a British army officer, accompanied by Modeen as his translator and secretary. Modeen wrote a record of his journey recording the sights he saw and the excited reactions of Londoners to the unusual sight of a high class "Hindoostanee" (as he called himself) visitor. It was not until some 60 years later that his manuscript account was translated and published. The Mirza spent about almost three years on his trip to Europe, staying mostly in London but also visiting Scotland and Oxford, before returning to his native India. - Insignificant foxing to title and final leaf. From the library of Sir Richard Strachey (1817-1908), the Indian administrator and father of Lytton Strachey (his engr. armorial bookplate to pastedown); later in the collection of Christopher Jower (bookplate to flyleaf).
