        Histoire des Végétaux fossiles, ou recherches botaniques et géologiques sur les végétaux renfermés dans les diverses couches du globe.

      - Paris & Amsterdam, chez G. Dufour et Ed. d'Ocagne, 1828-1837. 2 volumes bound in 3. 4to (295 x 225mm). pp. xii, 488, with 171 (16 folded) lithographed plates; pp. (4), 72, with 28 (9 folded) lithographed plates. Contemporary half calf, spines with 2 gilt lettered labels. A complete copy of the rarest work on paleobotany. "Brongiart originally planned to publish two volumes with 160 plates each in 24 fascicles. Publication was discontinued after the 15th fascicle (fas. 3 of vol. 2) which ends in the middle of a sentence"(Stafleu & Cowan 800). Our copy is conform the collation of Stafleu. "Brongiart was the architect of the science of paleobotany. In his 'Histoire', he examined fossil flora of different geological eras, providing 200 illustrations, of several figures each, to demonstrate the principles of classification and distribution, the historical development of plant life, and the relation between extinct and existing forms. Brongiart identified four distinct periods in the history of plant life, and drew a picture of gradual changes within the periods, that provided a botanical confirmation of the progressive model of biological development already derived from the studies in animal life" (The Haskell F. Norman Library of Science and Medicine, 350). W. Junk in his '50 Jahre Antiquar' writes that the second volume is excessively rare and that complete copies are considered a 'Rarissimum'. In 1915 W. Junk published a reprint of the work. The last copy we sold was advertised in our catalogue 204 number 43 in 1977. Small stamp on free endpaper. A fine copy.Dibner, Heralds, 95; Stafleu & Cowan 800; Junk Rara I p. 109. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        An Historical Sketch of the Greek Revolution

      White, Gallagher & White 1828 - First edition. xii, 447 pages 20 cm. An important book on the Greek War for Independence. Howe served as Surgeon in Chief for the Greek Fleet and as an active belligerent. Original boards. Rebacked. Hand colored folding map. Foxing throughout. Damp stain. Blackmer 837. Atabey 595 Droulia 1526. During the 1820s, America saw a rise in concern over the Greek fight for Independence. It was seen as a mirror to America's own revolution and spawned American philhellenes to move to Greece and join the fight. Samuel Gridley Howe, one of the noted philhellene, left Harvard in 1824 and soon joined the Greek army as a surgeon. However, his services soon became more of a military nature and his deeds and personality earned him the title "the Lafayette of the Greek Revolution." Though he had letters written to family on the crisis printed in American papers, the Greek government, on their behest, sent him back to procure funds and provisions. During this speaking tour, he wrote Historical Sketch of the Greek Revolution, to reach further audiences with the plight of the Greek people.

        COSTUMI VESTITI ALLA FESTA DA BALLO DATA IN MILANO DAL NOBILISSIMO SIGNOR CONTE GIUSEPPE BATTHYANY LA SERA DEL 30 GENNAIO 1828. (Prop. del. litog. G. Elena).

      (presso Gius. Elena Strada S. Sofia N. 4411) (1828) In folio (mm. 400x258), mz. pelle con ang. coeva, tit. oro su tassello al dorso, 1 c.nn. (dedica dell'Editore al Conte Antonio Giuseppe Batthyany, Ciambellano di S.M.I.R.Ap.) e 1 c.nn., posta al fine, che contiene l'?Elenco dei principali costumi vestiti alla festa da ballo....?, con una stupenda raccolta di 60 tavole disegnate da Francesco Hayez, in litografia e con superba coloritura a mano d'epoca, che raffigurano ospiti partecipanti alla festa. Manca il frontespizio. Per il carnevale del 1828, il conte ungherese Batthyany aveva pensato ad un grande ballo in costume, l'invito era stato accolto con molto favore dalla nobiltà milanese, e la sera del 30 gennaio aveva aperto con sfarzo il suo palazzo in Porta Orientale. L'autore di molti di quei costumi, il grande pittore Francesco Hayez, era vestito da "Giulio Romano" (il pittore del Palazzo Tè di Mantova); il Conte Batthyany portava il costume di Capo de' Montegrini; il pittore Giovannni Migliara quello di Claudio di Lorena; ma chi ebbe la palma per il migliore gruppo storico fu la famiglia Belgioioso, che aveva voluto rievocare la corte cinquecentesca di Francesco I, re di Francia. Parteciparono alla festa, che duro' sino alle otto del mattino, i più importanti aristocratici milanesi: Trivulzio, Visconti, Porro, Borromeo, Litta, Belgioioso, Bagatti - Valsecchi, Serbelloni, Casati, Brivio, Cicogna, ecc. Cfr. Arrigoni ?Milano nelle vecchie stampe?,II,1039 e 1037 con ill. (v. tavv. 75 e 74): ?E' noto che i costumi della festa furono disegnati da Francsco Hayez; non si sa invece chi fu l'esecutore delle tavole litografiche, in quanto secondo il titolo, l'Elena vi compare unicamente come editore e solo in pochissime tavv., come in quella con il costume di Giulio Romano, si distingue il suo segno? - Colas ?Bibliogr. du costume et de la mode?,746 - Lipperneide,2826. Comanducci, p. 321 e Servolini, p. 413: ?Francesco Hayez (Venezia 1791 - Milano 1882), pittore insigne, nonchè litografo e calcografo, insieme all'Appiani e al Fontanesi è l'esponente della litografia italiana ottocentesca. Pittore fecondissimo e instancabile, lavorò fino a veneranda età, impersonò per lunghi anni l'Accademia milanese di Brera, e fu per mezzo secolo l'idolo del pubblico? Uniti: - una litografia (210x269) dal titolo ?Festa Batthyany - 30 gennaio 1828?. Sotto la veduta a sin.: Hayez del.; a des.: Milano Litog. Vassalli. - un fascicolo (mm. 283x220), bross. orig. figur., ?Festa datasi dal Sig. Conte A.G. Batthyany, la sera del 30 gennaio 1828, nella sua casa di Milano?. Milano, coi tipi di Angelo Bonfanti, pp. 39, con l'elenco di tutti i Signori e Signore che comparvero alla festa e coll'indicazione del rispettivo costume assunto o personaggio rappresentato. Resoconto del grande avvenimento. (Manc. al dorso ma buon esempl. marginoso). Opera rarissima, difficile a trovarsi completa in quanto molti partecipanti riuscirono ad avere la tavola in cui eran stati ritratti dall'Hayez. Bellissimo e fresco esemplare.

        Mit höchst obrigkeitlicher Bewilligung hat Joh. Michael Satler (sic!), kaiserl. königl. akademischer Maler und Ehrenbürger von Salzburg, die Ehre, zur Schau zu stellen: Das Panorama von Salzburg nebst einer Reihe von malerischen Ansichten und der Stadt und dem Herzogthume Salzburg, aus Berchtesgaden und dem Salzkammergute.

      München, 28. Juni 1828. Plakat mit typograph. Text im Rahmen. Blattgr.: 44 x 35 cm. Frühe Ausstellung des 1825 begonnen, 25 Meter langen und 5 Meter hohen Panoramas. Das sog. \"Sattler-Panorama\", heute beherbergt im Salzburg Museum, zeigt Salzburg und das Umland von der Festung Hohensalzburg aus. Es ist das unbestrittene Hauptwerk des österreichischen Porträt- und Landschaftsmalers Johann Michael Sattler (1786-1847). Das Salzburg Museum wie auch andere Quellen sprechen von einer Fertigstellung im Jahr 1829 und auch einer ersten Präsentation am Ostersonntag 1829 auf dem heutigen Salzburger Makartplatz; wie nun diese Präsentation in München fast ein Jahr zuvor zu interpretieren ist, entzieht sich (noch) meiner Kenntnis. - Sattler vermerkt nach einer längeren Beschreibung der Schönheiten der Gegend und einer Auflistung von 12 ebenfalls gezeigten Gemälden: \"Alle diese Ansichten und das Panorama sind mit Oehlfarbe gemahlt. Der Unternehmer darf sowohl in dieser Beziehung als auch wegen der Menge und der Wahl der ausgestellten Gegenstände, so wie ihrer genauen Ausführung behaupten, daß bisher nichts Aehnliches zur öffentlichen Schau gestellt worden. Der Plan der Ganzen und dei Bequemlichkeit der Besucher erheischen: zuerst das Panorama zu beschauen, dann zur optischen Zimmerreise überzugehen. Zu diesem Ende wendet man sich beym Austritte aus dem Panorama rechts, und tritt sodann in die Gallerien in welcher die Gemälde in der oben beschriebenden Ordnung gereihet sind. (...) NB. Das Verhältniß des Lichtes ist so eingerichtet, daß bey trüben Tagen oder Regenwetter doch immer Sonnenschein herrscht.\" Versand D: 5,00 EUR

        Court Game of Astrophilogeon

      London W. Davy for Charles Hodges c 1828 - 60 engraved cards (the latitude and declinations hand-coloured), together with the 72-page instructions booklet A Short Treatise on Astronomy (as issued in limp cloth, spine torn), together in publisher's blindstamped red morocco case with flap, title gilt lettered on upper cover, approximately 9.1 x 6.1 cm. A well preserved example in excellent condition. A scarce astronomical card game, with the full compliment of 60 cards (30 constellations and 30 maps), and the accompanying rule book. Charles Hodges operated as a bookseller and stationer at 27 Portman Street, Portman Square, London, from 1825-6 until 1830. Following the tradition of engraved pictorial playing cards depicting educational, scientific and other subjects, which had its heyday in England during the 17th-18th centuries, Hodges published Geographical and Astronomical packs starting in around 1827. The present pack dealing with astronomy had numeral cards carrying diagrams of constellations and their pictorial representations; the court cards represent classical deities. The aim of the game was to obtain pairs of map and constellation cards from similar parts of the terrestrial and celestial globes. Information about the locality was printed at the bottom of the cards and the latitude or declination was displayed as a corner index at the top left under a large 'N' or 'S'. The maps which were used in the Geographical cards were re-used, without any suit signs stencilled in, to complete the Astrophilogeon decks. The geographical cards include United States, China, Brazil, Arabia, Persia, the booklet providing a succinct summary of their principal qualities.

        Gesammelte Schriften. Herausgegeben von Ludwig Tieck. Erster bis dritter Band in 3 Bänden.

      Reimer, Berlin 1828 - CXXXIX, 336; 340; 364 S. Private, dekorative Halblederbände von ca. 1910 mit schmuckpapierbezogenen Deckeln und goldgeprägten Leder-Rückenschildchen. Diese erste Werkausgabe erschien 36 Jahre nach dem Tod des Dichters, der zu dieser Zeit praktisch vergessen war. Sie enthält eine 140seitige Einleitung Tiecks und zahlreiche Erstdrucke nach Lenzens Handschriften. Klingers Drama "Das leidende Weib" wurde von Tieck irrtümlich mit aufgenommen. Der Nachlaß des 1792 in Moskau verstorbenen Dichters, nach Goethes Urteil die größte dichterische Begabung des Sturm und Drang, war Tieck von Lenzens Freunden zugespielt worden. Doch hat Tieck die Edition auffallend lange hinausgezögert, wohl mit Rücksicht auf die Gefühle Goethes, in dessen Gegenwart Lenz seit seiner bis heute rätselhaften "Eselei" und der Ausweisung aus Weimar 1776 nicht genannt werden durfte. Der Rücken von Band 3 mit Wasserfleck und die Einbände an den Deckelkanten und den Ledereckchen gering berieben, sonst schönes, gut erhaltenes Exemplar mit nur leichten Gebrauchsspuren.

Pleine basane marbrée, dos lisse orné de petits fleurons dorés, tranches jaunes, gardes de papier marbré (reliure de l'époque, mors fendus aux extrémités). Edition Originale de cet ouvrage curieux et richement illustré relatant les festivités données en l'honneur de la venue du roi Ferdinand VII et de son épouse Josefa Amalia à Barcelone. La seconde partie, "Mascara real", donne le détail des trois tableaux allégoriques qui furent représentés la nuit du 6 janvier 1828, chacun illustrés d'une planche lithographiée. Les planches de la première partie représentent l'arrivée des souverrains, ainsi que les installations architecturales réalisées à leur intention. Toutes les lithographies, témoignages des débuts de l'utilisation de ce procédé en Espagne, sont dues à Montfort, d'après des dessins de Planella, Antonio Ferran et F. Ferreras. Antoni Monfort est connu pour être l'un des pionniers de la lithographie en Espagne. Il obtint notamment en 1824 la libéralisation du procédé en faisant supprimer le privilège exclusif que la veuve Brusi s'était vu concéder pour utiliser cette technique, avant d'ouvrir un atelier réputé en 1825. Petites déchirures marginales et sans gravité aux planches. Très bon exemplaire. Sur les débuts de la lithographie en Catalogne, cf. Pilar Vélez, "La Litografia a Catalunya de 1815 a 1855".

        Broadside. Begins: Proclama. Simon Bolivar libertador presidente de Colombia & & &. A los pueblos del sur. Ciudadanos y soldados! La pefidia del gobierno del Peru ha pasado todos los limites ...

      Bogotá: No publisher/printer Folio (31.3 cm; 12.25"). [1] p.. 1828 The Liberator" condemns the actions — the "limitless perfidy" — of the government of Peru and announces the beginning of the first international war on South American soil. This pitted Peru against Gran Colombia and was an attempted land grab by Peru, wanting to wrench Bolivia from orbit of Gran Colombia. Greatly displeased with Peru's invasion of the nation named after him, in which he had been the first president, and which was guarded by forces from the Colombia of which he was presently president, Bolivar in this proclamation of 3 July mobilized his army. Coincidentally, and unknown to him, also on 3 July, Peru officially declared war on Gran Colombia. => Searches of NUC, WorldCat, CCILA, and COPAC fail to locate any copies. Tattered at the edges with tears and small pieces of paper missing; old repairs on the verso where a fold tear and another exist; small stains to upper margin, with light age-toning and a very little foxing. Housed in a quarter red morocco clamshell case. Very good.
