Grimm, Jacob, Sprachforscher (1785-1863).
Sehr seltenes, bisher unbekanntes Empfehlungsschreiben für den Demokraten Carl Adolf Buchheim (1828-1900), im Zusammenhang mit dessen Berufung an das King's College in London: "Dr. A. Buchheim ist mir durch seine ausgabe des Wallenstein bekannt. sie ist so gut gerathen, die gegebnen erläuterungen sind mit solcher einsicht in unsere sprache und mit so viel gesundem urtheil über die poesie gemacht, dasz ich nicht zweifle, herr Buchheim werde einen vollkommen ausgerüsteten, tüchtigen lehrer in diesem fache abgeben [...]". - Jacob Grimm und Buchheim standen seit Mai 1863 in brieflichem Kontakt. Das geht aus einem Brief Buchheims vom 15. Juni 1863 hervor, der einen Brief Grimms an ihn vom 12. Mai des Jahres erwaehnt. Das vorliegende Schriftstueck ist wohl aus dieser Korrespondenz erwachsen, für die es keine weiteren Hinweise oder Belege gibt (vgl. Grimm, Briefverzeichnis, dort keine Angaben auf den Standort und Verbleib der erwähnten Briefe). - Buchheim war Übersetzer und Literaturwissenschaftler. Im Revolutionsjahr 1848 emigrierte er aus Österreich zunächst nach Paris, 1852 dann weiter nach London, wo er 1863 als Professor für deutsche Sprache an das King's College berufen wurde. 1862 war seine kommentierte englische Ausgabe von Schillers "Wallenstein" bei Whittaker & Co. in London erschienen. Jacob Grimm verstarb am 20. September 1863. - Vgl. Friemel, Berthold, Stephan Bialas u.a., Verzeichnis von Jacob und Wilhelm Grimms Briefwechsel (online http://www.grimmnetz.de/bv/, abgerufen am 8. April 2020). - Zu Buchheim vgl. Jewish Encyclopedia (http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com//art … [Click Below for Full Description]

LUISON, Sebastiano
Italy Bassano presso L'Incisore, 1828. Group of four mixed method engravings, with superb contemporary hand-colouring, 33 by 42cm. Antonio Canova (1757-1822), the great neo-classical sculptor was born in Possagno. He chose to erect what became known as the Tempio Canoviano on a hill near the city, a structure he designed, financed, and partly-built himself. The church is renowned as an epitome of a particularly restrained form of neo-classicism. Work began in 1819, and continued after Canova's death until 1830. Modifications to Canova's original plans were made by Pietro Bosio, Giovanni Zardi, Gainnantonio Selva, Luigi Rossini, and the architect Giuseppe Segusini. Canova is buried there.

NIEUKIRK, Benjamin and Ruth P. (Andrew Jackson)
1828. Written on three sides of a bi-folium leaf addressed to Ephraim E. Sheppard of Bridgeton, New Jersey, and dated February 24th, 1828. Folded as mailed. Some small tears, creases and stains, else very good. A letter each from Benjamin and Ruth, apparently a married couple living in Xenia, Ohio. Both discuss the upcoming election and whether Jackson or Adams will win: the Nieukirks support Adams while Sheppard is a Jacksonian. Benjamin, a shopkeeper, asks after fashions and mentions hats; Ruth mentions family and gives a brief history of Xenia and its inhabitants. The Nieukirks emigrated from New Jersey to Xenia.

Gelner, 1829; [III] bucolic scene with a nude figure and what appears to be either an odd monument, or a cooking structure, or an odd chemical processor, dated 1815. One of the leaves of verse has the penned name of Therese Koppa, another shows the name of Bern Koppa. Original full elaborately gilt-stamped maroon morocco, all edges gilt, marbled endleaves. A handsome sketch book or memory book. From the library of Phoebe Jane Easton. Very good. PANORAMIC FORE-EDGE PAINTING BY 'STEVENS' – ON THIS MANUSCRIPT ALBUM.

In this case his painting is applied to a charming memory, or friendship, album. See: L. Jeff Weber, Annotated Dictionary of Fore-edge Painting Artist & Binders, pp. 244-246.

Webster, Noah
New York: S. Converse, 1828. Very good plus to near fine.. Terrific association copy of the first edition of Webster's epochal reference book, from the library of G. & C. Merriam Company, which eventually merged and published the first Merriam-Webster dictionary in 1847. Webster's dictionary enthusiastically embraced "Americanisms," codifying English usage different from that of British speakers. Only 2500 copies were printed, with approximately 70,000 words -15,000 more than any previous English-language lexicon, according to Edward Lethem. The reach and influence of this reference can only begin to be understood when one considers that writers like Emily Dickinson regularly relied upon Webster in their own work. An excellent copy, rarely found in contemporary calf boards.

Cary began his work as an engraver, cartographer, and globe maker in 1776 with his New and Correct English Atlas. This important atlas represented a new phase in cartography where accuracy and detail rose in prominence over the decorative embellishments of the 18th century. This change was indicative of the times when travel and commerce were expanding globally as never before. Cary's mas … [Click Below for Full Description]

AHLWARDT, Wilhelm.
A complete set of the scarce original edition, published as volumes 7-9 and 16-22 of the giant general catalogue of the Berlin manuscript collections ("Die Handschriften-Verzeichnisse der Königlichen Bibliothek zu Berlin"). Ahlwardt (1828-1909) was engaged in 1863 as cataloguer of the Arabian manuscripts. Until 1887 he classified, collated, described and excerpted some 12,000 works in ca 6000 volumes, including current accessions. The important collection was based on the precious library bequeathed by Heinrich Friedrich von Diez. It was gradually enlarged by the manuscript treasures purchased from leading German scholars such as Glaser, Landberg, Minutoli and Brugsch, Petermann, Sachau, Sprenger and Wetzstein. Ahlwardt's monumental catalogue is renowned for an unprecedented wealth of details both in physical and textual respect. It formed a pattern for a complete history of Arabic literature - theological, juridical, philosophical, scientific, linguistic, historical and poetical. Ahlwardt expanded on the customary manuscript catalogue entries by providing an exact outline of contents for each work catalogued. "When all ten volumes had been printed in 1899, Ahlwardt had created a work which by virtue of its scope and precision would remain of lasting value of the history of Arabic literature" (cf. Fück, Die Arabischen Studien in Europa, 1955, p. 192). Bindings a little bumped, dust-soiled and faded in places, some edges foxed. A clean and very good set.

London,: C. Hullmandel,, 1828. [1829]. Lithograph. In the early nineteenth century the Port of London came under pressure, and new docks were needed. Parliament selected a site in the Docklands in 1825, and construction began in 1827. The new docks were designed by Thomas Telford, a prominent contemporary civil engineer known as ‘The Colossus of Roads’, after overseeing several highway-building projects. It was his only major project in London, carving out two basins from the Thames accessed through a lock. The docks were made so that ships could unload directly from the water into the warehouses, reducing the quayside traffic. The new docks were named after St Katharine’s Hospital, founded by Matilda of Boulogne in 1147, which was demolished along with the slums that had grown up around it to make way for the new development. The area was particularly popular with foreign craftsmen, as it was exempt from the London guild restrictions. BM 1880,1113.1688; MOL 002069.

First edition of all three journals with the supplementary volume, complete in six volumes (five volumes plus sixth volume published in 1829), twenty-fourmo size, 1778 pp. Very good +. Sir William Edward Parry (1790-1855) entered the Royal Navy at the young age of thirteen serving with Admiral Cornwallis; seven years later he was promoted to the rank of lieutenant. After the end of the War of 1812 with the United States, England commenced a search for a Northwest Passage to the Pacific, and in early 1819 Lieutenant Parry was placed in command of an expedition to search for such, aboard the Hecla and in company with the Griper. While unsuccessful in its ultimate goal, Parry's expedition was the most successful to that date in the long quest for the Northwest Passage, being the first to pass the meridian of 110 degrees W within the Arctic circle. "Parry's care for his men, his solution of many of the problems of wintering in the ice, and his meticulous scientific work set a pattern of Arctic exploration for a generation" (n.b., Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, online).

[Coahuila and Texas]: [Cattle]
Villa de Agualez, Mx, 1828. [1]p. In Spanish. Folio. Old folds, light toning. Very good. A rare manuscript brand list from Coahuila y Tejas created during the first decade of Mexican independence. The listing comes from the village of Villa de Agualez, just across the Rio Grande from present-day Texas. The manuscript list includes drawings of ten brands with information on the horses and livestock held at the public corral, with written descriptions accompanying the illustrations of the brands. During this period, it was a common practice to herd stray horses and cattle to a common pen, then advertise them for recovery by their rightful owners. The practice officially became law in Coahuila y Tejas in 1835, at the eve of the Texas Revolution. The list is titled in manuscript, "PLANILLA SACADA DEL LIBRO DE BARRANQUENOS SE HA GEVADO ENCETE ANO DE 1828. CON ARRYO LO AL N. 138 DE ABRIL DE 1827.... EL REGIDOR TUER DE CAMPO DE LA VILLA DE AGUALEZ. MANIFIESTA A TODOS LOS AYUNTAMIENTOS CON LOS ANIMALES EN EL LA MISMA SE EXPRESAN, CON ARREGLO AL SITADO Y SON LOS SIGUIENTOS." This manuscript title translates roughly to "From the list removed from the book of Barranquenos written from the year 1828 with those of N. 138 from April 1827 then in the field of the Villa Agualez. Manifest to all the city councils with the animals as expressed here, with arrangement to their location as follows." It is signed at the end, "Teran Antonio Vela," likely a local rancher or government official. This brand list dates almost twenty years earlier than a similar listing from Yerba Buena [i.e. … [Click Below for Full Description]

He set off with three friends on 21 October 1847 and joined a group of missionaries travelling to the Far East. They crossed the Atlantic and sailed around Cape Horn then up the Pacific coast of South America to Valparaiso (near Santiago), crossing the South Pacific and sailing around the Philippines to reach Macao on 21 June 1848.

MOLTKE, Helmuth von and Lucie DUFF-GORDON (translator).
VI, [2], 476 pp.First and only edition in English of a principal source for the Russo-Turkish War of 1828-1829, by the future chief of staff of the Prussian Army. The war broke out after the Ottoman sultan closed the Dardanelles for Russian ships in response to Russian military support of the Greeks, who were fighting a war of independence against the Ottomans. The Russian army invaded the Ottoman territories in Europe and defeated the Ottomans in several battles in Transylvania, Wallachia and Bulgaria before capturing Edirne. With their capital city of Istanbul directly threatened, the Ottomans sued for peace.Originally published in 1845 as Der russisch-türkische Feldzug 1828-29, the book was translated into English by Lucie, Lady Duff-Gordon (1821-1869) who, according to the preface, had the intention to abridge the book, leaving out all military details, but was interested by the "vivacity and clearness with which even technical matters are described" that she believed that "even those among my readers who are as ignorant of the art of war, as I am myself, would have cause to regret their omission". Therefore she only left out "a few unimportant passages".Helmuth Karl Bernhard Graf von Moltke (1800-1891), often referred to as Moltke the Elder, served as a military adviser to the Ottoman Army in 1835-1839. From 1857 to 1888 he served as chief of staff of the Prussian and was the architect of the Prussian victories over Denmark, Austria and France, ultimately leading to the formation of the German Empire.Binding slightly soiled and worn at the extremities; spine damaged at … [Click Below for Full Description]

OCLC lists a copy at Michigan, with the following catalogue note: "An attack upon Jackson's conduct in the Seminole War. Lacock had conducted an investigation of Jackson's conduct at the time." Lacock investigated Jackson as member of the U.S. Senate from Pennsylvania, issuing a report in 1818 (Sabin 38471) in which he concluded that Jackson had lied repeatedly in an attempt to justify his actions. He says in the present piece that Jackson "delighted to dwell with composure scenes of blood and carnage." After leaving the Senate Lacock returned to western Pennsylvania. A surveyor, he devoted much of the rest of his career to the promotion and construction of the Pennsylvania & Ohio canal (see DAB). [Attributes: Signed Copy]

[Lafayette, Marquis de]: Irving, Washington
New York: G. & C. Carvil, 1828. Three volumes. xvi,399; 367; viii,[14]-420pp. plus folding map (as issued), plus two additional folding colored maps. Half title in each volume.
