        An American Dictionary of the English Language...

      New York: Published by S. Converse. Printed by Hezekiah Howe, New Haven,, 1828. To which are prefixed, an introductory dissertation on the origin, history and connection of the languages of western Asia and of Europe, and a concise grammar of the English language. 2 volumes, quarto (285 x 220). Contemporary American tree sheep professionally refurbished at joints and corners, spines with three flat broad raised bands ruled in gilt, red and dark green morocco twin labels decorated with gilt leaf-and-rosette roll tools, speckled edges, marbled endpapers. Engraved portrait frontispiece of Webster by A. B. Durand after S. F. B. Morse; printed in triple columns. Bound without the initial advertisement leaf. Label to vol. I misspelled "Dictioary", old marginal dampstaining to frontispiece and title of vol. I (causing a little discolouration and cockling), old repair (utilising part of an old postal enclosure held in place by red sealing wax) at fore-edge of 46 2 (gatherings are numbered throughout) in vol. II, yet a very good set, with the "Additions and Corrections" leaf bound at the end of vol. II. First edition of the dictionary that almost at once became, and has remained, the standard English dictionary in the United States; one of 2,500 copies. Webster wanted to stress the political separation from Britain by the cultivation of a distinct American language, and so, under the influence of his friend Benjamin Franklin, turned his attention to "a reformed mode of spelling" and gave many printed American words their distinctive appearance. "The book marked a definite advance in modern lexicography, as it included many non-literary terms and paid great attention to the language actually spoken. Moreover, his definitions of the meanings of words were accurate and concise (Sir James Murray, editor of the Oxford English Dictionary, called him 'a born definer of words') and have for the greater part stood the test of time superbly well. In fact, Webster succeeded in breaking the fetters imposed upon American English by Dr Johnson, to the ultimate benefit of the living languages of both countries" (Printing and the Mind of Man). The frontispiece portrait of Webster is after the likeness by Samuel Morse (1791-1872), who began life as a successful portraitist but who later gave his name to Morse Code, of which he was a co-developer. An attractive copy in an appealing American binding of the period.

Den blev en stor framgång när den utkom 1828. Gunnar Brusewitz frågar sig (i Björnjägare och fjärilsmålare) retoriskt om ?.någon författare kommit närmare det linneanska idealet för en topografisk skildring än pastorn på Mörkö?

        Ueber die Sprache. (Motto:) Rede, daß ich dich sehe! 4 Bl., 360 S. Halblederbd d. Z. mit Rückentitel und verblasster Filetenvergoldung.

      Heidelberg, C. F. Winter, 1828. - Außerordentlich seltene erste Ausgabe dieser bedeutenden Schrift des erst vor kurzem wiederentdeckten Autors, in der von der Sprache als untrüglichem Indikator der Gebrechen von Zeit und Gesellschaft die Rede ist. Als erster hatte Walter Benjamin auf Jochmann hingewiesen und begeistert geschrieben: "Eine Darstellung, der es gelänge, die Kontinuität des revolutionären Gedankens von Forster bis Jochmann aufzuzeigen, würde den Vorkämpfern des deutschen Bürgertums die Schuld abstatten, die seine heutigen Nachfahren insolvent findet . Wer die sprachliche Gestalt des . Essays in sich aufnimmt, den wird es wenig erstaunen, daß sein Autor nichts, was er veröffentlichte, gezeichnet hat . Der Zukunft, von welcher er in prophetischen Worten spricht, wendet er gleichsam den Rücken, und sein Seherblick entzündet sich an den immer tiefer ins Vergangene hinschwindenden Gipfeln der früheren heroischen Menschengeschlechter und ihrer Poesie . Jochmann erkennt, daß der Fortschritt des Menschengeschlechts mit den Rückschritten mehrerer Tugenden, vor allem aber mit dem Rückschritt der poetischen Kunst, auf das engste verbunden ist". Die fehlende Wahrnehmung Jochmanns in der Öffentlichkeit mag auch daran liegen, dass dieser, wie Benjamin sagte, "den Zeitgenossen aus dem Wege gegangen (ist)". So hat z. B. nicht einmal sein Freund und Nachlassverwalter Zschokke etwas vom Erscheinen dieses Hauptwerks Jochmanns zur Ostermesse 1828 erfahren. Selbst Eckardt weiß 1881 (in der ADB Band 14) noch nichts von der Autorschaft Jochmanns. "Jochmanns Buch handelt vom Zustand der deutschen Sprache, aber es meint den miserablen Zustand der deutschen Verhältnisse . Die Mängel der deutschen Sprache erklärt Jochmann als Mängel ihrer Rede, als solches aber sind sie Folgen des Mangels an öffentlichem Leben, des unentwickelten deutschen Gesellschaftslebens, eines Bürgertums, das noch zu keiner gesellschaftlich-öffentlichen Selbstgestaltung gekommen ist. 'Das öffentliche Leben der Deutschen geht in Schreibstuben und Paradeplätzen vor' . Der Sprachzustand ist ein politischer Zustand, wenn Jochmann das Deutsche als eine Sprache definiert, 'in der man kaum leise denken, geschweige denn laut zu schreiben versteht'" (Haufe, Die unzeitige Wahrheit, S. 335). Jochmann war Balte wie Jakob Michael Reinhold Lenz. Er wurde 1789 in Pernau am Rigaer Meerbusen geboren, Schule und Studium führten ihn nach Riga, Leipzig, Heidelberg, Göttingen und Lausanne. In Riga wurde er Advokat, floh vor den Napoleonischen Truppen nach England, kehrte kurz nach Riga zurück, um es für immer zu verlassen und auf Reisen durch Deutschland, die Schweiz und Südfrankreich Heilung für seine körperlichen Leiden zu suchen. Auf der Reise zu Samuel Hahnemann starb Jochmann 1830 an einem offenbar nicht erkannten Lungenleiden in Naumburg. "Nicht viel mehr als solche Eckdaten sind über sein Leben bekannt, kein Porträt überliefert uns eine Vorstellung von seiner Gestalt, seine Grabstätte wurde im zweiten Weltkrieg zerstört. Anonym hat er die meisten seiner Schriften veröffentlicht – ein Unbekannter und Unzugänglicher, ist er leidend an sich und der Welt echolos durch seine Zeit hindurchgegangen. Und doch scheint er als ein Zeitgenosse zu uns zu sprechen, mit dem Ton vernunftorientierter politischer Sehnsucht und wissender, melancholischer Skepsis" (Haufe). Das Manuskript des Buches ist nicht erhalten. Da spätere Auszüge von Zschokke und Neudrucke erhebliche Abweichungen zur Erstausgabe aufweisen, kommt dieser eine besondere Bedeutung für die Textkritik zu. – Nicht störend stockfleckig. Breitrandig und im ersten Einband. – Goed. XV 148, 3. Jochmann-Bibliogr. S. 285, I.a. Haufe S. 335. Nicht in der Sammlung Borst. [Attributes: First Edition]

Frères Schlesinger : vente catalogue des livres rares et manuscrits précieux composant la bibliothèque du Chevalier de B. 3 novembre 1866 La publication s'étendit de 1828 à 1834 et compta 6 volumes. Ces volumes sont d'une grande importance pour les familles nobles françaises qui se sont établies à saint-Domingue ; il s'y trouve des généalogies qu'il serait impossible de rencontrer ailleurs attendu qu'il n'existe aucun ouvrage imprimé sur cette matière. Une table alphabétique à la fin de chaque volume y facilite beaucoup les recherches. Le 17 avril 1825, sous la restauration, une ordonnance du roi Charles X de France reconnait l'indépendance contre une « indemnité d'indépendance ». Le 3 juillet suivant, une escadre de 14 navires de guerre se présente devant Port-au-Prince et l'émissaire du roi, le capitaine de vaisseau de Mackau se rend à terre pour informer le président Boyer de la décision du gouvernement français et le sommer, sous peine d'une déclaration de guerre et du blocus de tous les ports haïtiens, d'accepter les conditions de l'ordonnance qui outre le paiement d'une indemnité de 150 millions de francs aux anciens colons comprend l'octroi de privilèges douaniers exclusifs au commerce français2. Boyer vit là l'occasion de faire accéder enfin son pays à la reconnaissance internationale accepta l'ultimatum, ce qui lui fut vivement et longtemps reproché par la suite28. L'indemnité a un montant initial de 150 millions de francs sera réduit à 90 millions en 1838, soit approximativement le prix de la vente de la Louisiane aux Américains. Les autorités haïtiennes finissent de payer en 1886, soit au bout de 61 ans. Cette somme était destinée à dédommager les colons français pour leurs propriétés perdues. Mais seuls 11 000 des personnes indemnisées sur 25 000 sont d'anciens colons. Les autres sont des héritiers auxquels les banques françaises demandent le remboursement des prêts consentis à leurs parents pour l'achat de terres et d'esclaves. Ce sont finalement les banques les principales bénéficiaires. Il est estimé que c'est la charge très lourde de cette dette qui a conduit, en 1910, à l'achat d'une part importante de la Banque de la République d'Haïti par la banque américaine National City. Une opération qui est un prélude à l'occupation américaine de 1915 à 1934. C'est en effet une plainte de non remboursement de dettes des banques américaines qui a formellement déclenché l'opération. Il est à noter que les États-Unis ont pris prétexte de l'accord haïtien sur le paiement de l'indemnité pour maintenir leur refus de reconnaissance de l'État d'Haïti. Une position qui est en relation avec le préjugé racial contre les noirs à l'époque, et la nouvelle doctrine Monroe. C'est seulement en 1862 que les États-Unis reconnaitront Haïti. Cette décision sous la présidence d'Abraham Lincoln coïncide avec sa Proclamation d'émancipation qui met fin à l'esclavage aux États-Unis. le 7 avril 2003, conjointement avec des manifestations de rue du mouvement Lavalas qui scandent « Restitisyon », le président Aristide demande la restitution par la France de l'indemnité d'indépendance. Il estime son montant actualisé à environ 20 milliards d'Euros. Le 2 juin 2003 le président Jacques Chirac répond « j’ai la plus grande sympathie pour le pays et pour sa population. Et, nous avons de surcroît, une coopération importante et nous apportons à Haïti une aide non négligeable. Avant d'évoquer des contentieux de cette nature, je ne saurais trop conseiller aux autorités haïtiennes d'être très vigilantes sur, je dirais, a nature criminelle et anti-démocratique de leurs actions" [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Veduta del grand'interno dell'Anfiteatro Flavio, detto il Colosseo

      1828. La serie delle vedute di Antichità Romane, composta di 101 tavole, viene realizzata con il ricavato della e vendita dei rami della Raccolta di cinquanta principali vedute di antichità tratte dai scavi fatti in Roma in questi ultimi tempi divise in 40 vedute edita nel 1817. Con quest'opera, per il numero delle tavole e per il formato prescelto, di grandi dimensioni, l'incisore vuole affermarsi come figura di primo piano nel mondo artistico romano. In quest'opera Rossini si cimenta in un diretto confronto con il suo predecessore G. B. Piranesi che costituisce un punto di riferimento per un incisore di vedute antiche, per quanto riguarda l'originalità e l'ampiezza della riproduzione. Il Rossini, oltre a sottolineare la sua influenza nella scelta del titolo e di alcune didascalie, usa frequentemente le medesime inquadrature e identici punti di vista del maestro veneziano. Altro elemento riconducibile a Piranesi è l'uso della luce e dei forti contrasti chiaroscurali. In queste tavole raggiunge una certa padronanza del mezzo tecnico che gli permette di cimentarsi in inquadrature più complesse nelle quali si nota un'organizzazione spaziale molto articolata. Nelle tavole è frequente il ricorso al taglio diagonale della veduta, consentendogli una più ampia possibilità di graduare i chiaroscuri in profondità. Tuttavia essendo l'opera composta da molte tavole presenta una certa discontinuità ed è possibile riscontrare in alcune di esse qualche incertezza nella impostazione prospettica ed alcune durezze nel segno. Rimanendo fedele alla tradizione corrente, la scelta dei soggetti operata dal Rossini non introduce nessuna novità; sono infatti rappresentati tutti i più importanti monumenti e luoghi archeologici di Roma. Elementi di novità sono sottolineati dalla registrazione puntuale dei lavori di indagine e di scavo intrapresi in quegli anni che dalla originalità delle inquadrature. Di particolare interesse da un punto di vista documentario sono le ultime quattro incisioni relative alla distruzione della Basilica di San Paolo fuori le mura, in seguito all'incendio del 15 luglio 1823. La volontà di voler animare le vedute, restituendo il monumento al suo contesto storico e la propria inadeguatezza nel campo della figura porta Rossini ad una collaborazione con Bartolomeo Pinelli, incisore romano, interprete e illustratore del costume e della vita popolare; a cui si devono le figure e i gruppi caratteristici che corredano le vedute. Pinelli in alcuni casi, riprende i motivi tratti dalle sue precedenti raccolte di Costumi pittoreschi romani. Incisione in rame, ampli margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. The series of views Antichità Romane, made of 101 plates, was realized with the proceeds of the sale of the plates used for Raccolta di cinquanta principali vedute di antichità tratte dai scavi fatti in Roma in questi ultimi tempi divided in 40 views, published in 1817. This is the work with which the artist wanted to become one of the most important artists in the Roman cultural life; we can state that if we consider the size of the work and the subject he choose. In this work Rossini tested himself with his predecessor, G. B. Piranesi, who was considered as a point of reference when it came to ancient views and originality. Rossini, was deeply influenced by Piranesi, as it can be seen in the title, the legends, the same points of views and framing. Another important element he took from Piranesi is the use of light and the contrast of chiaroscuro. In these plates Rossini reached the higher mastery of the technique, realizing also extremely particular framings and a new and complex organization of the space. In the plates quite common is the diagonal view of the subject, which gave him the possibility to elaborate more the chiaroscuro. However, since the work is made of many plates, it is quite discontinuous and some of the plates present some indecision in the perspective formulation and a little harshness in the mark. Always following the tradition of his time, Rossini's choice of the subjects does not present any kind of originality; he actually depicted all the main archaeological sites and monuments of Rome. The sole novelty is represented by the precise record of the excavation works and analysis. Quite interesting, from a documental point of view, are the last four engravings depicting the destruction of the Basilica of St. Paul outside the wall, after the fire of July the 15th, 1823. The will to give life to his views, the reinstatement of the monuments to their historic context and the fact that he was not good with figures, brought Rossini to start a partnership with Bartolomeo Pinelli, Roman engraver and costume illustrator of daily life. He was the one who realized the figures of Rossini's views. Sometimes Pinelli took the subjects from his previous collection Costumi pittoreschi romani. Copperplate, with wide margins, in very good conditions.

        ASSURANCE THAT THE FEES INCURRED AT THE BETHLEHEM FEMALE SEMINARY BY AN ORPHANED FLORIDA GIRL WOULD BE PAID IN FULL ONCE HER BENEFACTOR RECEIVED PAYMENT FOR SLAVES SHE HAD LEASED TO A NEARBY FARMER ; Four-page folded letter from Isabelle Gibbs to the Reverend Charles F. Seidel

      St. Augustine, Florida 1828 - This four-page, stampless folded letter measures 15.5" x 9.75" unfolded. It is dated June 18, 1828 and addressed to the Reverend Charles F. Seidel at Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. The cover has scarce oval "St Augustine / E. Flo." postmark in red dated June 19 and a manuscript ".25" indicating the postage rate from mail sent over 400 miles. The letter is complete and intact. Splits have started along some of the folds; and a chip is missing where the wax seal was broken. In this letter to the Bethlehem Female Seminary, Gibbs repeatedly assures that a newly enrolled orphan's bills will be paid using funds her adoptive widowed mother-a friend of Gibbs-receives from hiring out slaves to a local farmer: "We hope Margaret will improve knowing as she does the sacrifice her maternal Friend makes to her own personal comforts for . . . the lasting benefits of her adopted child. . . . Be not uneasy as to prompt payment as the parties concern'd have character & principles & you shall receive your next quarter as soon as the Gent to who the Negroes are hired answers Mr. Gibbs letter. The money & more due to Mrs Ashe & will be remitted to you. Be not mistaken Margaret is born of honest Parents, her Father lost his prudence and fell victim to intemperance. Her mother was one among the pious & died a Triumphing Christian, in these last moments the kind & religious Mrs Ashe receiv'd to her bosom this child. . . . Mrs Ashe would not give an Education unsupported . . . & unless Death removes the Negroes allotted to her she will have sufficient to maintain her. . . . Had you a person in Charleston to receive there payments, they could be more easily be made as our communication with that City is regular by both Water & Land - Also many robberies are committed by mail that from this isolated spot the risque is great. . . . This evening the Gent who employs the Negroes of Mrs Ashe & who lives about 40 miles from here will be written to. . . . Your seminary reciev'd several children from Brooklyn N.Y. with whose Parents I was intimate & this induc'd me to recommend it to Mrs Ashe." The Bethlehem Female Seminary was the first Protestant boarding schools for girls established in what would become the United States and traces its roots back to Countess Benigna Zinzendorf who founded it in 1742. Although it began as an elementary institution, by 1800 it was recognized as one of the finest secondary schools in the country. Its motto was "When you educate a woman, you educate an entire family," and its curriculum included both liberal academics and practical household teachings. Charles F. Seidel served as its director 1822 to 1836. Over time the seminary morphed into several incarnations, and today it is a full-fledged liberal arts college, Moravian College. A scarce document attesting to the generosity of neighbors in East Florida, one of the most remote parts of the early United States, who ensured a quality education for a young white orphan girl using proceeds earned from African-American slave labor. Made all the more desirable by a rarely found St. Augustine postmark.
