        Eigenh. Brief (Fragment).

      O. O., [wohl 1828].. 4 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 4to.. Beginn eines längeren Briefes an einen nicht ermittelten Empfänger: "Dear Sir / I am truly grieved that my request should have weighed upon your mind in any way, and I most lament having made it at all if it is inductive of pain to you - so, however much I may regret losing the really valuable transcripts of your unsophisticated mind I would rather forgo that pleasure than cause you to be forced back upon scenes and feelings which are too much for your strength. You cannot think how really refreshing it is to read any thing which is perfectly natural, which bears no marks of what is called composition about it - but is the genuine portrait (if I may be allowed to expression) of feelings and thoughts [...] I am very much occupied - almost too much so - but I believe one must not look back or forwards but do diligently every hour what we are called upon to do, and if we act thus under the eye of God by the grace of Jesus Christ, the past and the future will take care of themselves. 'But who is sufficient for these things?' No one does what they ought; we can all preach but who is there that practises? Not I God knows, I am perhaps just beginning to be a good child as I am going on into second childhood. - You will be sorry to hear that Mr Bury has had but indifferent health and it is a constant source of anxiety to me [...] My work 'Flirtation' has a great many enemies - but I think it tends to good, and good only, so I care not - one must make up one's mind to being shot at when one sets up a target - everybody who runs a literary career will meet with these rebuffs. They are fearful at first, but secure of one's motive they become merely gnats, in a summer's eve. - I have begun a very great book - I do not trust in my own strength to bring it to good issue but in that of Him who inspired me with the idea to undertake it [...]". - Faltspuren mit kl. Einrissen.

It was his stated intention "to exemplify the genera and species of the insects of the United States, by means of colored engravings," was hailed upon its appearance as "'the most beautiful publication of the kind' ever issued from an American press" (Weiss & Zeigler, Thomas Say, p.190.) The quality of the plates and the clarity of Say's description won him immediate fame abroad, and he was made a foreign member of the Linnean Society of London.

        Album of Grand Tour Drawings in Pencil and with Watercolor Wash of Mostly Italian Sights

      1828. Quarter Calf. Paper pastedown on boards.. Very Good. Oblong, 11 by 14.5 cm. 40 numbered leaves, with drawings on most pages. Most of the drawings are finished, with mixed in some intermediary, exploratory or unfinished sketches. And by finished, we would note that the artist was meticulous in the rendering of fine detail. These are the work of either a professional or a very accomplished amateur, and that is taking into account that artistic draftsmanship was an artform far more widely cultivated back when than it is today. The paintings and drawings include ruins of temples and the like, the Vatican, Hadrian's Tomb, the Tiber (Tevere), Tivoli, the countryside, arches, harbor scenes, a view of Florence, Santa Maria della Salute in Venice, the Bridge of Sighs in Venice as well. The predominant spirit of the more finished work is in the vein of Claude Lorrain, with an occasional work that is more a stringent study in perspective. There is an assortment of other imagery besides landscapes and architectural views, including a few costume vignettes that are rendered in full color with watercoloring, and other figurative studies, some quite charming if only intermediate studies. Among the delightful vignettes are drawings of farm animals -- donkeys, a ram, etc. Many of the drawings have brief handwritten captions, although we find the cursive elusive to read. The final four pages are all writing, with inscriptions from friends or contacts filling most of the space. It is from this that we have derived the date of 1828. The drawings may be slightly earlier or later, but their style and general spirit is clearly early nineteenth century. Some foxing and scattered soiling. The binding has heavy-ish wear.

        Recherches sur la force du coeur aortique. Th?se

      Paris: Didot le jeune, 1828. Poiseuille, Jean Léonard Marie (1799-1869). Recherches sur la force du coeur aortique. Th?se . . . 4to. 45pp. Engraved plate. Paris: Didot le jeune, 1828. 257 x 206 mm. Modern quarter calf, marbled boards. Tiny paper flaws in 2 leaves, a few small spots, but fine. First Edition. ?Poiseuille was the first after Stephen Hales to make any important addition to the knowledge of the physiology of circulation. In his graduation thesis, above, he described a ?hemodynamometer? invented by himself and which he used to repeat some of Hales?s blood-pressure experiments. With his hemomanometer, a mercury manometer, which was a great improvement on the long tube used by Hales, Poiseuille showed that the blood-pressure rises and falls on expiration and inspiration, and measured the degree of arterial dilatation produced by each heart beat? (Garrison-Morton.com 767). The above work was Poiseuille?s doctoral thesis; he would go on to make further important contributions to the study of circulatory hydrodynamics, including ?Poiseuille?s law? regarding the resistance to blood flow in a single vessel.

        Origin of the the [sic] new system of manufacture, commonly called 'power-loom weaving', and the purposes for which this system was invented and brought into use, fully explained in a narrative, containing William Radcliffe's struggles through life to remove the cause which has brought this country to its present crisis. Written by himself

      Stockport: printed and sold by James Lomax, Advertiser-Office. 1828. 8vo., (2) + 216 + (2)pp., including the final errata leaf, title-page rather soiled and variable soiling elsewhere, contemporary, probably original, red cloth, rebacked with part of the original label retained, the covers generally soiled and worn, entirely uncut. First edition: very scarce. (About 11 libraries have copies: 5 in UK, 5 in US + Eth-Bibliothek in Zurich). Goldsmiths 25500. Kress C.2159. Williams II p.118. William Radcliffe (1761?-1842), a Stockport cotton manufacturer and 'improver of cotton machinery' (ODNB), was closely involved with both the politics and technology of factory modernisation in the early years of the 19th century. Attacked by Luddite rioters in March 1812, when his machinery and furniture were destroyed and his wife injured (resulting in her early death a few weeks later), Radcliffe's business collapsed. His semi-autobiographical Origin of the new system of manufacture> is 'a rambling set of recollections' (ODNB) in which he blamed the 'Foreign Anglo Junto' centred on Manchester for all his troubles. Although not published until 1828, Radcliffe tells the reader that 'the narrative ..... was written in the years 1819 to 1822 inclusive, having been addressed in successive letters to a monthly club, the members of which were power-loom manufacturers; which club I had formed> in 1811 .....'.

        Characters in the Grand Fancy Ball Given by the British Ambassador Sir Henry Wellesley, At Vienna, At the Conclusion of the Carnival, 1826; In Thirteen Highly Coloured Plates: With a Description of the Entertainments on That Occasion

      London: R. Ackermann, 1828. Second Edition. Quarter Calf. Moire Boards. Very Good. 4to. 24 by 19 cm. Frontis, title, 16 pp. followed by 12 hand-colored plates of fancy masquerade dress. Depicting a ball that in its day was remembered for being especially opulent and over-the-top. The dress was inspired by novels, notably those of Sir Walter Scott and Baron La Motte Fouque. What distinguished this entertainment certainly from the masquerade of more recent times is how the evening was minutely planned so that the theatrical dress was coordinated with the dances and the scheduling of the evening unfolded not unlike a Vaudeville entertainment, but one in which the guests themselves were the willing players, and so there was a blurring of audience and actors/models. Scuffing to the cover. Scattered soiling, light creases to some some leaves, other signs of moderate use. Tissue guards intact.

        Execution of William Corder, For the Murder of Mary Martin in the Red.

      1828. "Young Lovers All I Pray Attend, While I Relate a Deed, The Bare Recital of the Same, Will Make Your Hearts to Bleed." [Broadside]. [Execution]. [Suffolk, England]. Execution of William Corder, For the Murder of Mary Martin in the Red Barn. [London]: Printed by J. Catnach, 2 Monmouth-Court, 7 Dials, [1828]. 15" x 20" broadside. Text in five columns separated by black rules, five large woodcut vignettes, three at top of text, two below, depicting moments in the history of the crime. All but the hanging scene have captions. Account concludes with a long verse poem. Moderate toning, horizontal and vertical fold-lines, some edgewear and a few chips and minor tears along fold-lines, otherwise fine. * "The Red Barn Murder was a notorious homicide committed in Polstead, Suffolk, England in 1827. A young woman, Maria Marten, was shot dead by her lover, William Corder. The two had arranged to meet at the Red Barn, a local landmark, before eloping to Ipswitch. Maria was never heard from again. Corder fled the scene and, although he sent Martin's family letters claiming she was in good health, her body was later discovered buried in the barn after her stepmother spoke of having dreamed about the murder. Corder was tracked down in London, where he had married and started a new life. He was brought back to Suffolk, and after a well-publicized trial, found guilty of murder. He was hanged at Bury St. Edmonds in 1828; a huge crowd witnessed Corder's execution. The story provoked numerous articles in newspapers, and songs and plays. The village where the crime had taken place had become a tourist attraction and the barn was stripped by souvenir hunters.": Wikipedia..

        Eigenh. geburtstäglicher Morgengruß mit Bleistiftzeichnung und U.

      [Schloss Dornburg/Saale], 28. VIII. 1828.. 1 S. 4to. Wasserzeichen: zweikonturige Antiquaversalien "E & R" (Fragment).. Unbekanntes Geschenkblatt Goethes, am Morgen seines 79. Geburtstags: "Guten Morgen / zum 28ten Aug. 1828 / Goethe", darüber die blasse Bleistiftzeichnung eines hügeligen Horizonts mit Wolken. Abgebildet ist das Panorama, das sich Goethe im Sommer 1828 beim morgendlichen Blick aus dem Fenster und von der Terrasse des Renaissanceschlosses Dornburg an jedem Tag neu darbot. Die Höhen über dem Saaletal bei Jena waren ein Bild, das er während seines Dornburger Aufenthalts regelmäßig in der Frühe genoss und oft genug in seinem Tagebuch mit Sorgfalt beschrieb - so etwa am 24. Juli: "Leidliche Witterung. Bedeckter Himmel. Mäßiger Südwind. Bey Sonnenaufgang die gegen meinem westlichen Fenster liegenden grauen widerwärtigen Kalkabhänge von dem allerschönsten Rosenroth gefärbt". - Nach dem Tod des Großherzogs Carl August am 14. Juni 1828 hatte sich Goethe am 7. Juli, noch zwei Tage vor der feierlichen Beisetzung, nach Dornburg bei Jena zurückgezogen, um für sich sein zu können; er verlängerte seinen Aufenthalt mehrmals und kehrte erst am 11. September nach Weimar zurück. Während dieser Monate arbeitete er in seiner einfach eingerichteten Stube im südlichsten der drei Dornburger Schlösser vorwiegend an botanischen Betrachtungen, verfasste aber auch Lyrik, die unverkennbar vom steten Blick auf die Umgebung inspiriert ist: "Früh, wenn Tal, Gebirg' und Garten / Nebelschleiern sich enthüllen, / Und dem sehnlichsten Erwarten / Blumenkelche bunt sich füllen; / Wenn der Äther, Wolken tragend, / Mit dem klaren Tage streitet, / Und ein Ostwind, sie verjagend, / Blaue Sonnenbahn bereitet; / Dankst du dann, am Blick dich weidend, / Reiner Brust der Großen, Holden, / Wird die Sonne, rötlich scheidend, / Rings den Horizont vergolden." Schon am ersten Tag nach seiner Ankunft hatte Goethe die Morgenröte von seinem Fenster aus genossen: "Früh in der Morgendämmerung das Thal und dessen aufsteigende Nebel gesehen. Bey Sonnenaufgang aufgestanden. Ganz reiner Himmel, schon zeitig steigende Wärme" (8. Juli). Sechs Wochen später erinnert ihn der Blick gar an eine in der 'Odyssee' beschriebene Morgenstimmung: "Vor Sonnenaufgang aufgestanden. Vollkommene Klarheit des Thales. Der Ausdruck des Dichters: 'heilige Frühe' ward empfunden. Nun fing das Nebelspiel im Thale seine Bewegung an, welches mit Südwestwind wohl eine Stunde dauerte, und sich außer wenigen leichten Streifwolken in völlige Klarheit auflöste" (18. Aug.). Obwohl das von leichter Hand hingeworfene Blatt nicht koloriert ist, mag man die rhododaktylische Atmosphäre Homers in den zarten Linien der Skizze wiederfinden wollen. Seinen Geburtstagsmorgen beschreibt Goethe als den "schönsten Frühmorgen, wo ich die Vorläuferin der Sonne, Frau Venus genannt, in ihrem herrlichsten Glanze am Himmel stehen sah". Im Tagesverlauf wich dieser Glanz indessen einem "gewaltigen", "nebelhaften Regen", und einige Linien in der rechten Bildhälfte deuten wohl, gemeinsam mit den Wolken, das heraufziehende Wetter an. - Wem Goethe diesen Gruß "zum 28ten Aug. 1828", seinem eigenen 79. Geburtstag, mit etwas kokett wirkender Geste widmete, ist nicht sicher. Sein Sohn August hatte ihn am Vorabend noch spät besucht und war, nachdem der Dichter allen Geburtstagsbesuch abgelehnt hatte, "im Mondenschein" zurückgefahren. Womöglich dedizierte Goethe das Blatt seinem alten Bediensteten Paul Götze (nunmehr Wegebau-Inspektor zu Jena und selbst schon im 68. Lebensjahr stehend), der sich "zu früher Morgenzeit" glückwünschend einfand: "mit Brottorte und Flaschen alten guten Weins" (wie Goethe seiner Schwiegertochter Ottilie berichtete). Zu den weiteren Gästen des Vormittags zählten der Registrator Christian Schuchardt und der Bibliothekar Ernst Weller "mit Schwester und Knaben", weiters der Schriftsteller Johann Diederich Gries, der Jurist Wilhelm von Schröter und der Theologe Hermann Agathon Niemeyer. Zu denken wäre aber auch an Goethes Nachbarn auf dem alten Dornburger Schloss, der Amtsaktuar Carl Gustav Stichling (ein Enkel Wielands) mit seiner Frau Berta (eine Enkelin Herders) und ihrer neugeborenen Tochter.

        History of the War in the Peninsula and in the South of France, from the year 1807 to the Year 1814. [6 Volumes]

      Published by John Murray and Thomas & William Boone, First Edition 1828 - 1840. 6 Volumes. 1828. All first editions in contemporary half leather covers, twin morocco lettering label's between slightly raised bands to the spines, marble paper covered boards, page edges and end papers. 8vo. 9'' x 5½''. Volume 1; published 1828, 7 plates of maps. 530 pages, plus appendix. Volume 2; published 1829, 8 plates. 534 pages. Volume 3; published 1831, 12 plates. 640 pages. Volume 4; published 1834, 9 plates, 589 pages. Volume 5; published 1836, 8 plates 581 pages. Volume 6; published 1840, 10 plates, 688 pages. Plates are plans or maps of all the important sieges & battle strategies etc. all present as called for. Without doubt the best descriptions of the wars ever written. From the library of Hugh Cecil Lowther, Earl of Lonsdale [The Lowther Castle Set] with his coat of arms bookplate to each front paste down and leather cameo motif to each front cover. Sporadic foxing to some of the battles plans, 2 of the 12 leather labels to the spines with small pieces missing. The first volume of this history appeared in 1828. The publisher John Murray was disappointed by the sales of the first volume so Napier published the remainder himself [Thomas and William Boone, Strand]. But it was at once seen that the great deeds of the Peninsular War were about to be fittingly commemorated. The excitement which followed the appearance of each volume was proof of innumerable pamphlets issued by those who believed themselves to be victims, by dint of personal altercations with many distinguished officers. The success of the book proved still further an absence of competition amidst bitter controversy. The histories of Southey and Lord Londonderry fell still-born, and Sir George Murray, Wellington's quartermaster-general, who had been determined to produce an historical work, gave up the attempt in despair. Napier's success was due to a combination of factors. When in 1840 the last volume of the History was published, his fame not only in England but in France and Germany was well established. The Peninsular War (1807 - 1814) was a military conflict between Napoleon's empire and the allied powers of Spain, Britain and Portugal for control of the Iberian Peninsula during the Napoleonic Wars. The war started when French and Spanish armies invaded and occupied Portugal in 1807, and escalated in 1808 when France turned on Spain, its ally until then. The war on the peninsula lasted until the Sixth Coalition defeated Napoleon in 1814, and is regarded as one of the first wars of national liberation, significant for the emergence of large-scale guerrilla warfare.
