        O ubostwie i ubogich.

      8vo. Original [?] plain wrappers; pp. [4], iii, 150, [2, blank]; apart from light toning, and the final blank partly stuck to rear wrapper, a fine copy in its original state. Rare first edition of an early Skarbek title on political economy, based on the Polish experience, his On Misery and the Poor, dedicated to Zofia Zamoyska (1780-1837), member of the Polish high nobility, hailed at the Congress of Vienna as the most outstanding beauty. 'The conception of the moral unification and solidarity of all social states was ... developed and popularized on a European scale by Fryderyk Skarbek, writer, activist, and educator, who today is too little remembered. In his book On the Misery and the Poor (O ubóstwie i ubogich), edited in 1827, speaking about duties of the privileged he applied a theory of social models which he later developed in his essay in French entitled Essai de Morale Civique (1860), touching upon the so-called active people' (Zygmunt Komorowski, Universal Values in Polish Culture, online). Skarbek was befriended by and godfather to the composer Frédéric Chopin (1810-49), who had been born on the Skarbek estate in ?elazowa Wola. As well as stage plays, Skarbek wrote on social issues, fiction, satires, worked on prison reform in Britain, Holland and Russia, and is responsible for the design of the infamous Pawiak prison in Warsaw. Count Fryderyk Skarbek (1792-1866) studied in Warsaw and Paris, where he obtained private tuition in economics from Saint-Aubin and Piotr Maleszewski. ?In 1818 he was called to the chair of political economy at the University of Warsaw, where he taught with great success until the closing of the institution by the Russian authorities after the collapse of the Polish insurrection in 1831 ... His literary legacy includes besides several works on economics, which established his reputation as the foremost Polish economist of his period, a number of studies in the field of history, criminology, statistics and general social reform. While Skarbek regarded himself as a follower and interpreter of the classical school of economics, he departed from its teachings in a number of significant respects. Even in his early writings he drew a sharp distinction between theoretical economics, which has for its purpose the discovery of universal principles on the nature and source of the wealth of nations, and applied economics, in which the general principles shoud be modified in accordance with the geographical location, degree of economic development and other peculiarities of the respective nations' (Encyclopedia of the Social Sciences).

First edition of this monograph on the freshwater molluscs of Brazil, the first work devoted to Brazilian shells, and one of several publications resulting from Spix and Martius' expedition to Brazil from 1817 to 1820. The expedition was under the aegis of the King of Bavaria, Maximilian Joseph I. 'His plans for sending scientific explorers to South America were realized in 1817, when an Austrian expedition was sent to Brazil. Martius and several other Bavarian scientists, including his companion, the zoologist Spix, went along. They left Trieste on 2 April 1817 and returned to Munich in December 1820' (DSB).'Spix and Martius were the first European scientists to visit the Amazon after La Condamine. Their collections . provided material for a vast number of works by other scientists. Spix himself was occupied entirely with publishing his findings after his return to Munich. Weakened by the fevers that he had suffered on his voyage, he died [in 1826], leaving other zoologists, including Louis Agassiz, to complete the publication of his works' (ibid.).For this volume the descriptions were provided by J.A. Wagner. It was edited by Paula von Schrank and Martius.Borba de Moraes II 280; Nissen ZBI, 3954 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        1827 Autograph Letter Signed by Jurist Lemuel Shaw to Gettysburg

      1827. Lemuel Shaw Asks Edward Everett to Help a Friend Seeking a Naval Commission Shaw, Lemuel [1781-1861]. Everett, Edward [1795-1865]. [Autograph Letter by Shaw, Signed, to Edward Everett with Everett's Appended, And Signed, Letter of Transmittal, Boston, October 4, 1827 and October 12, 1827]. Single leaf folded to form 9-3/4" x 7-3/4" bifolium with integral address leaf, franked in red on verso of second leaf. Some toning, old lines with short tears at ends, some remnants of paper from old mounting on back with no loss of legibility. * This 1827 letter from future Chief Justice of Massachusetts Lemuel Shaw to then Congressman and future Gettysburg orator Edward Everett contains two letters. It contains Shaw's original letter, requesting help for a friend who was seeking a commission as a purser in the Navy, and Everett's appended letter on behalf of Shaw's friend to the Secretary of the Navy, Samuel L. Southward. In the 19th century, Edward Everett was celebrated as a preacher and public orator. He is most famous for delivering a two-hour oration in 1863 at the dedication of the Gettysburg military cemetery. Everett's speech was subsequently eclipsed by President Abraham Lincoln's immortal, two-minute Gettysburg Address. At the time this letter was written Shaw had already served in both houses of the Massachusetts Legislature and had drafted the first charter of the City of Boston. In 1830, he became the Chief Justice of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. He served on that court for 30 years and participated in such notable cases as the "Parkman-Webster" murder case and in Commonwealth v. Hunt, an important labor law precedent establishing that labor unions were not criminal conspiracies.

Le stampe del volume, caratterizzate da uno stile classico ma attento al pittoresco, talora con inserimento di graziose figurine, hanno tutte (ad eccezione delle ultime tre) taglio orizzontale, e sono di varie dimensioni; l’impressione su carta di Cina permette al segno litografico di essere apprezzabile per la chiarezza e la morbidezza.

        Tableau Encyclopédique et Méthodique des Trois Règnes de la Nature: VERS, COQUILLES, MOLLUSQUES ET POLYPIERS.

      - Paris, Agasse, 1827. 3 volumes. 4to (292 x 220mm). pp. viii, 180, with 493 engraved plates. Contemporary half calf, richly gilt spines with 2 blue gilt lettered labels, marbled sides. A fine complete copy of the invertebrate section of the 'Encyclopédie Méthodique.' The shell section covers plates 160 to 471, and all plates are suberbly drawn and engraved, many by De Sève, Marechal, Redouté and other famous artists of the period. 'Bruguière is chiefly remembered for his writings on invertebrates in the 'Encyclopédie Méthodique'; and his excellent work on lower animals earned him a high reputation in his day. Among the larger French collections in private hands was that of the eminent botanist Louis Claude Marie Richard, which was advertised for sale in 1819. If the advertisement is to be believed it must have been very fine indeed; for it included the valuable Hwass collection and 167 paintings of shells executed by J. Barraband, many of them being the originals from which the illustrations of the 'Encyclopédie Méthodique' were engraved' (Dance pp. 63 & 98). A few plates with some worming in the margin not affecting the illustrations.Nissen ZBI, 4621 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

It was originally composed in the fourth century as a guide to the training and organization of the Roman legions. Lipowsky (1764-1842), was a Bavarian diplomat, lawyer, historian, and chief archivist of Bavaria. Fine copy from the Wittelsbach library of the dukes and kings of Bavaria. With a presentation letter from Lipowsky to the Duke of Bavaria. Rare; WorldCat locates no copy in America. .

        Tableau Encyclopédique et Méthodique des Trois Règnes de la Nature: VERS, COQUILLES, MOLLUSQUES ET POLYPIERS.

      Paris, Agasse, 1827. 3 volumes. 4to (292 x 220mm). pp. viii, 180, with 493 engraved plates. Contemporary half calf, richly gilt spines with 2 blue gilt lettered labels, marbled sides. A fine complete copy of the invertebrate section of the 'Encyclopédie Méthodique.' The shell section covers plates 160 to 471, and all plates are suberbly drawn and engraved, many by De Sève, Marechal, Redouté and other famous artists of the period. 'Bruguière is chiefly remembered for his writings on invertebrates in the 'Encyclopédie Méthodique'; and his excellent work on lower animals earned him a high reputation in his day... Among the larger French collections in private hands was that of the eminent botanist Louis Claude Marie Richard, which was advertised for sale in 1819. If the advertisement is to be believed it must have been very fine indeed; for it included the valuable Hwass collection and 167 paintings of shells executed by J. Barraband, many of them being the originals from which the illustrations of the 'Encyclopédie Méthodique' were engraved' (Dance pp. 63 & 98). A few plates with some worming in the margin not affecting the illustrations.//Nissen ZBI, 4621.

        The Aeropleustic Art, or Navigation in the Air, by the Use of Kites, or Buoyant Sails.

      Wilson for Sherwood London 1827 - Quarto (32.5 x 27.8 cm). Calligraphic title engraved by A. Adlard with hand-coloured aquatint vignette by P. Roberts, dedication leaf, 51 pp., with 3 hand-coloured aquatint plates by P. Roberts after T. Butterworth and S. Colman.; scattered foxing. Original drab boards with printed paper label to upper cover, rebacked with black morocco gilt, spine with raised bands; large English cartographic engraving pasted to upper pastedown. First edition of this unusual book primarily concerned with the use of kites in transport - with plates beautifully hand-coloured. The book was sold with plain plates at 20s or with coloured at 25s. "Still a Boy with the Boys", as the he puts it in the dedication, George Pocock was a schoolmaster at Prospect Place Academy, a school in Bristol. He has been described as the father of kite traction since his main extra curricular interest was inventions and kites, exploring "Things unattempted yet". The book details the origin and history of the invention, going back to his own childhood. Experimenting with kites and stones, Pocock "wondered" and grew ambitious. The book continues with accounts of Pocock's experiments with kites, for example using kites to pull boats. Pocock also explains the mechanics, construction and the power of kites. He then propounds several uses for them. Their application by sea included serving as auxiliary sails to the navy, trading vessels and merchant men. He also suggests using kites in the case of a shipwreck, using them to drop anchor. Pocock does, however, acknowledge that portions of the plan are not practicable. Most notably, Pocock invented and patented the "charvolant", a carriage that would be pulled by two kites attached by controllable lines, rather than horses. The name for this apparatus came for the French for kite, cerf-volant, and the French for carriage, char. This carriage could allegedly reach speeds of twenty miles per hour. The book discusses journeys from Bristol to Marlborough stating that they beat one of the London stages to Marlborough by twenty-five minutes, even thought the stage had a fifteen minute head start. Of this journey Pocock comments: "This mode of travelling is of all others the most pleasant: privileged with harnessing the invincible winds, our celestial tandem playfully transpierces the clouds, and our mystic moving car swiftly glides along the surface of the scarcely indented earth; while beholders, snatching a glance at the rapid but noiseless expedition, are led to regard the novel scene rather as a vision than a reality."

        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

      London: Henry Colburn, 1827. Hardcover. Very good. 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).

        PAIR OF REVERSE SILHOUETTE PROFILE PORTRAITS PAINTED ON GLASS].

      [New York. 1827]. - Two portraits on glass measuring approximately 7 x 5 inches; framed to 10 x 7 1/2 inches. Minor wear. Contemporary frames with wear and paint touch ups. Very good. Two reverse silhouette portraits on glass painted by famed American artist George Catlin, signed by him. Each is painted within an oval frame with gold gilt spandrels, bearing the signature "G. Catlin, 1827" within the oval. The first portrait depicts a military officer in full dress uniform, facing left. His name has, presumably been painted on the frame but has been rubbed away. The second portrait is of a woman in a linen cap with lace collar and earrings. Each is housed in an ebonized molded frame of the period. After abandoning a career in law, George Catlin (1796- 1872) moved to Philadelphia in 1821 to cut his way as an artist. He exhibited frequently and, in 1824, became a member of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. He earned the bulk of his income doing society portraits and miniatures, though he quickly tired of both. In 1826 he travelled to Buffalo where he painted a well received portrait of the Seneca chief, Red Jacket. During this period he produced original artwork on the Erie Canal and the falls at Niagara (his first collection of prints, VIEWS OF NIAGARA, was published in 1831). The following year he moved to New York, where, presumably, these portraits were painted. While there he received his most important commission to date, a full-length portrait of Gov. DeWitt Clinton. Meanwhile, George Catlin and his younger brother, Julius, were formulating a plan for a joint venture into Indian territory. George was to paint the Indians, while Julius would gather archaeological specimens. In a tragic turn of events of the sort that plagued Catlin's life, Julius drowned while swimming in the Genesee River in September of 1828, an event that art historian Brian W. Dippie says contributed mightily to Catlin's eagerness to escape west. Four years later he embarked on his celebrated western tour. A charming pair of silhouette portraits from early in this noted artist's career.

        Personal Narrative of Adventures in the Peninsula during the War in 1812-1813. By an Officer late in the Staff Corps Regiment of Cavalry.

      London: John Murray,, 1827. Octavo (183 x 111 mm). Contemporary speckled calf, decorative gilt spine, green morocco label, red & brown speckled edges. Wood engraving (at p. 239) of the main gateway at Palencia. Contemporary armorial bookplate of Alexander Gordon of Auchlunies, uncle to Wellington's chief ADC Sir Alexander Gordon. A crisp, clean copy in a lovely period binding. First edition of this decidedly uncommon Peninsula War narrative; Copac locates seven copies in British and Irish institutional libraries (Cambridge, Oxford, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Manchester, Scotland, Southampton); not in OCLC. Buckham served mainly with the commissary and his first-hand account is an important one, particularly in that his approach to the campaign diverged from other writers of the time: "E. W. Buckham's Personal Narrative... which commiserated the soldiers' suffering rather than celebrate military adventure, was similarly criticised by the 'Naval and Military Magazine', which doubted that the author had even truly been a 'military man'" (Neil Ramsey, The Military Memoir and Romantic Literary Culture, 1780-1835, 2011, p. 75).

(Garrison), and the stimulus for the study of tissue pathology in England.Hodgkin was the first in England to give a regular course of lectures in morbid anatomy, which he began at Guy?s Hospital in 1827.

Hodgkin made a number of original observations in the course of his lectures, although in many cases others put them into print before him.Hodgkin gave an impetus to the study of pathology which extended to many aspects of the subject.

        The American shooter's manual, comprising such plain and simple rules, as are necessary to introduce the inexperienced into a full knowledge of all that relates to the dog, and the correct use of a gun; also a description of the game of this country.

      Philadelphia: Carey, Lea & Carey 12mo (18.5 cm; 7.125"). [2] ff., pp. [ix]–248, [1] p., [1 (errata)] f., [3 (ads)] ff.; frontis., 2 plts.. 1827 The first American illustrated sporting book and the first American sporting book written by an American. Only one sporting book published in America preceded it: The Sportsman's Companion (NY,1783; later editions Burlington [NJ], 1791, and Philadelphia, 1793), "by a gentleman, who has made shooting his favorite amusement upwards of twenty-six years, in Great-Britain, Ireland, and North-America." Kester deals almost exclusively with game birds and waterfowl native to the Delaware Valley that surrounds Philadelphia: wild turkeys, partridge, snipe, quail, grouse, and ducks. With regard to rifles and guns he addresses cleaning, powder, wadding, etc. And when writing about dogs, in addition to notes on training and conditioning them, he offers recipes for common ailments and gun-shot wounds. The plates are signed "F. Kearny," an artist born in Perth Amboy, NJ, who studied drawing with Archibald and Alexander Robertson and engraving with Peter Maverick. From 1810 to his death in 1833 he practiced engraving in Philadelphia. There are two states of gathering "U": this copy has the typographical error "tibbon" with the stop-press correction to "ribbon" on p. 235. The volume ends with advertisements for several sporting and fishing goods suppliers. Publisher's sprinkled sheep with simple rope roll in blind on board edges, some abrasion to leather; round spine with gilt double rules forming "spine compartments," black leather title label. The usual light and scattered foxing noted in all copies, nothing more. => A very nice copy.
