BRANDE, William Thomas
London: John Murray, 1828. FIRST EDITION. Original cloth-backed boards, spine label; overall in superb condition. From the libraries of the Essex Institute, Francis Peabody Library, and Arnold Thackray, with both bookplates present. First edition and considered "very scarce and not in the usual chemical bibliographies" (Neville). Noted as a significant book in the development of the theory of chemical combination, in which the combining weights of the known elements are presented in tabular form. It is also important because it gave an experimental basis to Dalton's atomic theory and brought the use of equivalent weights into practice. Brande (1788-1866), apprenticed as an apothecary, studied medicine, but his main interest was chemistry. He succeeded Sir Humphry Davy to the chair of chemistry at the Royal Institution, and was director of their laboratory and mineralogical collection. At the Royal Institution, Brande devoted himself to chemical investigation, lectures, and writing, as well as editing the Quarterly Journal of Science and Art, where he was assisted by Michael Faraday. "Never a major researcher in the sense of Davy or Faraday, he was an effective lecturer and writer of several important textbooks, all of which went through several additions" (ODNB, II, pp. 1124-1126).

Charles Darwin, while a student at the University of Cambridge sent Stephens records of some of the insects he had collected, and was delighted when his contributions were credited in 33 entries, quoting his words in all but two of the cases. Haustellata, Vol. II, p. 200 records the occurrence of the common noctuid moth Graphiphora plecta at Cambridge, and the publishing date for this part is June 1st 1829. Since the record is given in quotation marks it makes it the first publication by Darwin in a book. (Freeman, 1977, pp19-20). Darwin recalled in his autobiography "No poet ever felt more delight at seeing his first poem published than I did at seeing in Stephen's Illustrations of British Insects the magic words, 'captured by C. Darwin, Esq.'". [Attributes: Hard Cover]

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.

R. Therry
London: James Ridgway, 1828. About this Item: Therry was an Irish-Australian jurist and member of the New South Wales Legislative Council. He became acquainted with Canning when employed to edit his speeches and prepare them for publication. The speeches present in these volumes were published after Canning's death along with the life of Canning written by Therry. Canning was one of the most singular and remarkable of the leading statesmen of the first half of the nineteenth century, who was the only serving prime minister to sit in the Commons in this period, possessed undoubted and enviable talents, not least of which was the rich and varied oratorical eloquence which gave him an absolute ascendancy in the House. Damned at various times as a 'jester' (by William Cobbett), an 'actor' (by Henry Brougham) and a 'charlatan' (by the duke of Wellington), even as sympathetic an observer as John Wilson Croker could joke that Canning 'never took tea without a stratagem', or could remark, in a perception that captured a not always articulated sense of unease about him, that his 'mind's eye squinted'. In short, to the governing élite, who considered him too clever by half, Canning always seemed to stand slightly out of true; for Wellington, he was 'a man of imagination, always in a delusion [who] never saw things as they were'. So it was a considerable testimony to his mental courage, which never failed him, and his physical resilience, which in the end did, that he overcame formidable obstacles to become, in the 1820s, an outstanding foreign secretary, which is how posterity rightl … [Click Below for Full Description]

This, his major work, was in competition with John Curtis’ 'British Entomology' (1824-1839), and this gave rise to an acrimonious dispute which split the British entomological establishment into opposing factions for over thirty years.

Charles Darwin, while a student at the University of Cambridge sent Stephens records of some of the insects he had collected, and was delighted when his contributions were credited in 33 entries, quoting his words in all but two of the cases. Haustellata, Vol. II, p. 200 records the occurrence of the common noctuid moth Graphiphora plecta at Cambridge, and the publishing date for this part is June 1st 1829. Since the record is given in quotation marks it makes it the first publication by Darwin in a book. (Freeman, 1977, pp19-20). Darwin recalled in his autobiography "No poet ever felt more delight at seeing his first poem published than I did at seeing in Stephen's Illustrations of British Insects the magic words, 'captured by C. Darwin, Esq.'".

London, : William Bulmer, 1828. London, William Bulmer, 1828. In-4 gr. (mm. 353x245), mz. pelle con ang. coeva (lievi abras.), dorso a cordoni con ricca decoraz. e tit. oro, tagli dorati, cc.nn. 71, intervallate da 84 magnifiche tavole di ritratti inc. in rame e colorati a mano, ad imitazione dei disegni originali di Holbein. In Indice ne sono indicati solo 80, gli altri 4 sono: di Holbein e sua moglie, di Henry e Charles, figli di Charles Brandon, Duke of Suffolk. In questa splendida collezione, le illustrazioni sono stampate su carta pesante bianca o color rosa (come gli originali), sempre precedute da un foglio bianco di protezione, e sono accompagnate da una biografia del personaggio. I disegni originali si devono al grande artista tedesco Hans Holbein il Giovane (1497-1543) che divenne pittore aulico di Enrico VIII (dopo il 1532) e “nei suoi ritratti mostra una finezza di indagine psicologica e una precisione tecnica superiori a quelle che si riscontrano nel padre, Hans il Vecchio”. Così Diz. Treccani,V, p. 787. A distanza di due secoli, l’iniziativa di raccogliere i magnifici ritratti di importanti personaggi della corte di Enrico VIII e di trarne delle tavole incise fu di John Chamberlaine, antiquario inglese vissuto tra il XVIII e l’inizio del XIX secolo, mentre le note biografiche sono a firma di Edmund Lodge. "Seconda edizione" con le tavole della prima del 1812. I ritratti su carta bianca hanno il bordo del margine bianco annerito per ca. 15 mm.

MANZONI, Alessandro.
Lugano: Franc. Veladini, 1828. Good. Complete in 3 vols., 16mo., original cloth boards re-backed in matching cloth, pp. xv, 322 [+2 blank]; 345, [+2 blank]; 413; each volume with a hand-coloured copper-engraved frontispiece illustrating a scene from the narrative. Spines faded, abrasion to labels (esp. vols. 2 and 3) with some loss of text, pages slightly foxed, front pages of vol. 1 coming loose, hinges tender; otherwise good. One of the earliest editions of Manzoni's classic of Italian literature (usually translated into English as "The Betrothed"), first having been published the previous year. With the name of Frances Rossetti (née Polidori) inscribed on the front endpapers of each volume, most likely in the hand of the famous poet Christina Rossetti, her daughter, as suggested by the handwriting's remarkable similarity to how it appears in numerous surviving documents; and, on the front endpaper of the first volume, another ownership inscription by William Michael Rossetti, brother of the poet (and a prominent writer and critic in his own right), denoting that the book was presented to him by her: 'W.M. Rossetti/from Christina/1887'. The hand of this too can be proven by comparing it to surviving examples. 1828 was the year of the birth of the illustrious painter-poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti; it is thus plausible that the set was a present to mark the occasion from Frances's husband Gabriele. 1886, the year preceding the date of the later inscription, was the year of Frances' death, so one explanation for the mix of names, dates and hands in the inscriptions to these vo … [Click Below for Full Description]
