        RELACION de la Entrada de los Reyes nuestros Señores en la Ciudad de Barcelona, la mañana del 4 de diciembre de 1827, y de los demas festejos públicos, que tributó á SS. MM. La junta de Reales obsequios, en nombre y representacion de dicha ciudad.

      (Barcelona), En la Imprenta de la Vuida de D. Augustin Roca, 1828. - in-8. 25pp. (1p.blanche). 10pp. 3ff. 8 planches dépliantes. 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".

A fine large paper copy of Brougham's speech to parliament on law reform, one of just 30 according to Goldsmith. The advertisement leaf states that Brougham co-operated on this particular issue and it includes his corrections."In February 1828, when he delivered a six-hour speech-the longest ever in the Commons-on law reform, in which he exposed flaws in virtually every area of law (omitting only chancery reform and the criminal law) and staked his claim to be parliament's prime champion of law reform. Brougham's speech struck the perfect note. He showed himself to be committed to a widescale reform of the legal system, while resisting Bentham's iconoclasm. In preparing the speech he had in fact received much guidance (and many manuscripts) from Bentham, who still considered Brougham as the man best placed, after the suicide of Romilly, to advance his projects for codification and the abolition of the common law" (ODNB).The speech attracted wide publicity and was also published in Philadelphia in the same year.

        Autograph Letter, Signed, to Joseph Story. 1 page, 4to. 26 Oct 1828

      1828 - The Supreme Court Reporter Writes to Justice Story Peters, Richard [1740-1848]. [Story, Joseph (1779-1845)]. [Autograph Letter, Signed, to Story, Philadelphia, October, 26 1828]. Single leaf folded to form 10" x 8" quarto bifolium, written in ink, addressed, franked and postmarked on verso of fourth page, which has a wax seal. Fold lines, some toning along margins, otherwise fine. * Peters, a Philadelphia lawyer and county official, was the reporter of the U.S. Supreme Court from 1828 to 1843. (His volumes are reported today as 26-41 U.S.). This letter refers to the delayed commissioning of Joseph Hopkinson [1770-1842], son of founding father Francis Hopkinson, as a judge on the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, a post held previously by Peter's father. President Adams issued Hopkinson's recess appointment to the District Court on 23 October 1828. He was confirmed by the Senate and formally commissioned in February 1829. According to Peters: "It has been long, very long, withheld, and Mr Adams has suffered much from the delay -- I do not know how he can justify it -- The public interests suffered, and this he knew -- He seems to have forgotten the maxim 'Bis dat qui' &c [Bis dat qui cito dat- he gives twice who gives promptly]. It was a wise appointment. Joseph Hopkinson's distinguished legal career included his successful defense of Supreme Court Associate Justice Samuel Chase during his impeachment trial (1804-05). (Hopkinson also wrote the lyrics to the patriotic anthem "Hail, Columbia.") Peters also thanks Story for sending him a copy of an address, most likely A Discourse at the Request of the Essex Historical Society, September 18th, 1828, in Commemoration of the First Settlement of Salem, Massachusetts, and says he was "exceedingly gratified and instructed by its perusal."

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Berlin, 20. III. 1828. - 2 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 4to. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief). An den frz. Rechtshistoriker Charles Guenoux bzgl. der Übersetzung seines Hauptwerks, der "Geschichte des römischen Rechts". Savigny bestätigt den Empfang eines Briefes von Guenoux mit einem Exemplar der juristischen Zeitschrift "Thémis", in der Guenoux Auszüge seiner vorbereiteten Übersetzung veröffentlicht hatte (1826, SS. 225-248). Sehr erfreut über dessen Initiative, weist Savigny Guenoux auf einige terminologische Verbesserungen hin, die in dessen Übersetzung berücksichtigt werden sollten. So möge er etwa nicht von "la Germanie" reden, sondern statt dessen besser "germaniques" verwenden, da unter letzterem Begriff alle germanischstämmigen Nationen erfaßt würden, wohingegen der erstere nur auf das gegenwärtige Deutschland abziele. - Savigny, der bedeutendste deutsche Rechtsgelehrte seiner Zeit, Freund von Clemens Brentano und Lehrer der Gebrüder Grimm, gilt als Begründer des modernen Internationalen Privatrechts und zählt zu den Gründungspersönlichkeiten der Humboldt-Universität. Seine beiden Hauptwerke, die "Geschichte des römischen Rechts im Mittelalter" (1815-31) und das "System des heutigen römischen Rechts" (1840-49), wurden von Charles Guenoux ins Französische übersetzt; ersteres Werk erschien als zweibändige "Histoire du droit romain au Moyen Age" 1830 bei Mesnier in Paris sowie, basierend auf der seit 1834 herausgegebenen zweiten deutschen Ausgabe, 1839 ebendort bei Hingray in drei Bänden. Guenoux kannte Savigny zunächst nur über seine Korrepsondenz, entwickelte dann aber zu diesem, den er auch mehrfach in Deutschland besuchte, ein sehr freundschaftliches Verhältnis. - Mit kleinen Randläsuren und kleinem Ausriß durch Siegelbruch (geringf. Textberührung); Faltspuren. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The first volume chronicles the Italian explorerÂ’s adventures in Europe and the second volume translates from the original French his travels in America. The folding map, which was included in this edition in response to its lack in the French edition, illustrates the routes traveled in America and details BeltramiÂ’s view of the geography of the Mississippi. The second volume “gives some novel particulars” of the Northwestern Indians, including the Chippewa and Sioux, among whom Beltrami moved (Field 111). Howes B338. Sabin 4605. Owner stamps, with occasional colored pencil underlinings.Frontispiece and “Schwetzingen” plan in Volume I reinforced. Map about-fine, with only two tiny closed tears.

        One Hundred Fables WITH: Second Series

      1828. First Edition . NORTHCOTE, James. One Hundred Fables, Original and Selected. WITH: Second Series. London: George Lawford; John Murray (Chiswick Press), 1828; 1833. Two volumes. Octavo, late 19th-century three-quarter brown calf, raised bands, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, marbled boards and endpapers, top edges gilt, uncut. $1500.First edition of artist NorthcoteÂ’s compilation of 201 fables, “the greater portion of which are of my own invention,” with his headpiece designs for each one and with initial letters and tailpieces by William Harvey, pupil of Thomas Bewick.“James Northcote was one of a number of prominent painters of the 18th centuryÂ… Today Northcote is chiefly admired for his portraits, though his paintings of animals found favor in his lifetime. In his later years he devoted an increasing amount of time to history paintings, including some scenes from ShakespeareÂ’s history plays which were exhibited in BoydellÂ’s Shakespeare Gallery. Northcote is renowned also for his writing, penning the first full biography of Reynolds in 1813, and later a Life of Titian, as well as a book of Fables lavishly illustrated by woodcuts crafted from his own designsÂ… A prolific artist, Northcote was credited with around 2000 works, and by living frugally in his London house for the last 50 years of his life he died a wealthy manÂ… A second series of the Fables was published posthumously, financed by a clause in his will setting aside between £1000 and £1400 explicitly for this” (Devon Perspectives). Thomas Bewick called One Hundred Fables “a brilliant Book.” Northcote acknowledges that “although the original invention and designs for the prints at the head of each Fable are my own, yet they have been most excellently drawn on wood, and prepared for the engravers, by Mr. Willliam Harvey, one of the most distinguished artists in his profession; and many of them have been improved by his skill.” This set includes both series of NorthcoteÂ’s Fables, the second being printed at the Chiswick Press. Ray 55 & 56. Brunet IV, 103. Graesse IV, 688. Gift inscription in Volume II.Half title excised from Volume I, a few stray spots of foxing. Near-fine copies.

        De la percussion médiate et des signes obtenus à l'aide de ce nouveau moyen d'exploration dans les maladies des organes thoraciques et abdominaux

      Paris et Londres, J.S. Chaudé & J.B. Baillière, 1828. 1828, 1828, in-8, de X, 336 pages et 2 planches, Demi-basane bleu de l'époque, dos à faux nerfs orné, Première édition de cet ouvrage qui valut à son auteur le prix Montyon. Piorry (1794-1879), l'un des pionniers de l'auscultation après Laennec, fit entrer la percussion médiate dans l'examen physique respiratoire. Il inventa à cet usage le plessimètre à plaque (de plesso, "je frappe", et metron, mesure), fait d'une lamelle de bois ou d'ivoire. Son utilisation est fondée sur le fait que les organes émettent des sons et donnent des sensations tactiles en fonction de leur structure. Piorry expérimenta sa technique sur un cadavre avant de l'intégrer à l'examen clinique. Le plessimètre à plaque sera utilisé pendant presque un siècle avec des résultats apparemment excellents. Piorry apporta également des modifications au stéthoscope ; la première planche du présent ouvrage figure le stéthoscope de Laennec avec les modifications apportées.

        President's Message

      1828. First Edition . ADAMS, John Quincy. PresidentÂ’s Message. IN: National Intelligencer— Extra, December 2, 1828. Washington: [Gales & Seaton], 1828. Broadside sheet of wove stock, measuring 15-1/2 by 21-1/2 inches, printed on recto only. $3000.Probably the earliest newspaper printing of AdamsÂ’ last State of the Union Address, in which he acknowledges the unfairness of the famous “Tariff of Abominations,” which all but lost him the presidency.AdamsÂ’ term as president was “a long nightmare, oppressed by a succession of alternately terrible and trivial events, which he seemed powerless to control or avoid” (Brookhiser, 93). Perhaps the last “terrible event” of AdamsÂ’ administration was his proposed a high tariff on imported industrial goods, particularly textiles and finished clothing. This bill he thought would protect New England factories, the hub of U.S. industry, from European competitors. Andrew JacksonÂ’s supporters in Congress opposed the tariff but sought to exploit the question in order to embarrass Adams and help Jackson win the presidency in 1828. They framed a bill, which became known as the “Tariff of Abominations,” to “win support for Jackson in Kentucky, Missouri, New York, Ohio, and Pennsylvania while weakening the Adams administration in New England. The bill raised duties on iron, hemp, and flax (which would benefit Westerners), while lowering the tariff on woolen goods (to the detriment of New England textile manufacturers)” (University of Houston). The “Tariff of Abominations” also created a political uproar in the South, where it was denounced as unconstitutional and discriminatory. Southern exporters of raw cotton often took finished goods as partial payment for their crops and the tariff on imported textiles reduced their profits. “The tariff, southerners insisted, was essentially a tax on their region to assist northern manufacturers. South Carolina expressed the loudest outcry against the tariff. At a public meeting in Charleston, protesters declared that a tariff was designed to benefit ‘one class of citizens [manufacturers] at the expense of every other class.Â’ Some South Carolinians called for revolutionary defiance of the national government” (University of Houston). Adams was met with hostility on all fronts.In this, AdamsÂ’ fourth and last State of the Union Address, he acknowledges the unfairness of the tariff: “The tariff of the last session was in its details not acceptable to the great interests of any portion of the Union, not even to the interest which it was specially intended to subserve. Its object was to balance the burdens upon native industry imposed by the operation of foreign laws, but not to aggravate the burdens of one section of the Union by the relief afforded to another.” But it was too late. AdamsÂ’ address was delivered just the day before he learned of his defeat by Andrew Jackson. The ploy had succeeded. John Randolph of Virginia accurately described the object of the 1828 Tariff Bill as an effort to encourage “manufactures of no sort or kind, except the manufacture of a President of the United States.” Not recorded by Shaw & Shoemaker. Light soiling to top margin, shallow creasing to corners. An extremely good copy. Scarce.

Ihr Entstehungszeitraum, die Jahre zwischen 1830 und 1850, war in der deutschen Medizin eine Zeit der Krise und des Umbruchs, die Medizin schien in ein chaotisches Nebeneinander von unterschiedlichen Theorien und Praktiken zu münden. - In dieser Zeit des Umbruchs schufen C.W. Hufeland und seine Mitherausgeber ein Wörterbuch, dessen Beiträge von sachlichem Stil und nüchterner, unpolemischer Kritik geprägt waren. Das Wörterbuch bot einen solide recherchierten zeitgenössischen Wissensstand und einen verhältnismäßig neutralen Überblick über die Vielfalt der medizinischen Theorien und Konzepte.

        Über Interpolation.

      Berlin: Königlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften, 1828. First printing of what is now called the Gauss-Newton interpolation formula; which enables one to predict the value of a quantity given a finite number of observations. Gauss had lectured on the interpolation formula at Göttingen in 1812; his then student Encke attended Gauss's lectures, and published his notes on them in the present paper almost two decades later. Gauss's interest in interpolation formulas derived from their obvious application to predicting the present position of a celestial body given several observations of its position in the past. Gauss had become famous by correctly predicting the position of the minor planet Ceres, discovered by G. Piazzi on 1 January 1801, on 7 December 1801 after its orbit had taken it behind the Sun. Although Gauss published nothing on the interpolation formula during his lifetime, a manuscript discussing it entitled 'Theoria Interpolationis Methodo Nova Tractata' was found in his Nachlass and published in Werke, vol. III, pp. 265-327. Encke (1791-1865) is now principally remembered for his work on comets. He predicted the orbit of a comet discovered in 1818 and when this was confirmed by observation the comet was named after him. His work brought him the Gold Medal of the Royal Astronomical Society. In 1825 he became professor at the Berlin Academy of Sciences and director of the Berlin Observatory. "After his appointment at Berlin, [he] undertook the editing of the Berliner Astronomisches Jahrbuch... With the support of his assistants... he issued the yearbooks for 1830-1866... Its issuance was a private matter, supported by the state, but not without economic risk. The opportunity to publish made possible the appearance of Encke's treatises in the yearbooks, dealing particularly with orbit determinations and perturbation computations" (DSB). In the present volume, the first of the yearbooks issued by Encke, the first section (pp. 1-235) is taken up with tables of ephemerides, while the second section (pp. 239-308) is taken up with five papers by Encke on the calculation of stellar occultations, on a stellar sextant, etc., as well as the paper on the interpolation formula. Provennace: Contemporary engraved bookplate of (third) Earl of Dunraven on front paste-down. Edwin Quin, third Earl of Dunraven, was educated at Eton where he showed a strong taste for astronomy; and afterwards spent three years at the Dublin Observatory under Sir William Rowan Hamilton. While the natural sciences occupied much of his attention; he was also deeply interested in the study of Irish antiquities, and was a prominent member of the Royal Irish Academy, the Celtic Society, and several archaeological associations. His Notes on Irish Architecture (two volumes, London: 1875-77) were published after his death in 1871. In: Berliner Astronomisches Jahrbuch für 1830... herausgegeben von J. F. Encke, pp. 265-284. The complete volume offered here: 8vo, pp. xii, 308, with one engraved plate of diagrams. Contemporary dark blue-green half-calf and marbled boards, smooth spine panelled by broad gilt rolled bands, one panel directly lettered in gilt, other panels with large gilt tool in centres, edges speckled green.

        Les Contes du Gay Sçavoir. Ballades, Fablaiux et Traditions du Moyen Age...ornés de Vignettes et Fleurons, imités des Manuscrits originaux par Bonnington et Monnier.

      Paris: F. Didot for Lami Denozan, (1828). 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. cxlvi, 48 pages + 11 leaves bearing the lithographs uncolored. Title page & 10 half-page lithographic vignettes by Richard Parkes Bonington (6) and Monnier (4). Bound by Charles de Samblanx in Romantic style in black straight grain morocco, central Arabesque in gold with raised design painted pink, green, & gold; pink calf doubles with multiple gilt rules, elaborate corner pieces inlaid with turquoise morocco; pink moire flyleaves, marbled endpapers (one with the armorial bookplate of Baron de Launoit); spine richly gilt is signed at the foot. The original (and meant to be temporary) wraps with label are bound in. Extremely slight wear. Fine copy of a very pretty book. The lithographs were made with pen, printed on China paper, and mounted with the text, which is printed in a batarde type face. In this deluxe copy, a leaf bearing the lithograph in its natural state is inserted before each appearance of the colored one within the text. The large opening initials also are colored & gilded. The fables are followed by a section of commentary. Gordon Ray (The Art of the Illustrated French Book 1700 to 1914, pages 173-176) writes of Bonington "his importance in the development of lithography can hardly be overstated." They are intentionally primitive in conception. The title page supports Bouchot's contention (p. 91) that Bonington may be commenting ironically on the Hours of Simon Vostre."
