      Philadelphia: Carey, Lea & Carey, 1828. Two volumes, bound in one [as issued]. Small 4to [22.5 by 14 cm], later dark blue quarter morocco, gilt, with marbled sides; flat spine ruled and lettered in gilt. (4), iv, (9)-212; 238, (4) pages. One leaf with small tape repair; internal foxing. Very good to near fine. The English translation of a highly detailed and enthusiastic account of a visit to the United States by Duke (Prinz und Herzog) Karl Bernhard of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach (1792-1862), who in the years 1825 and 1826 traveled through the southern, midwestern and northeastern United States and in parts of Canada. Among other things, it contains Duke Bernhard's account of his visit to the United States Mint, which is undescribed in the numismatic literature. Bernhard appears to have had some numismatic interest, and is a keen observer. On his visit to the Mint, he witnesses the production of half dollars, including the cutting of the planchets and the actual striking of the coins. He notes that no silver dollars had been struck since 1803. The medals produced by the Mint are of considerable interest to him, and he praises in particular the Naval medals of the War of 1812 period and specifically the 1815-dated medal struck in gold for Andrew Jackson for the Battle of New Orleans. (Bernhard was a military man admired for commanding the 2nd Brigade of the 2nd Dutch Division of the Duke of Wellington's forces at the Battle of Quatre Bras in the lead-up to Waterloo.) He admires as well the agricultural medals struck by the Mint and laments that the Mint's own collection does not include examples of the earlier American medals. No stranger to politics, he records that while the Mint is poorly equipped and insufficiently housed, the personnel fear requesting adequate funding from Congress for fear of losing the establishment altogether. While his record of this visit takes up only pages 179-180 of the second volume, it is quite interesting. Elsewhere, Bernhard describes the medal collection at the Boston Athenaeum and notes a collection of coins at the Western Museum in Cincinnati. Careful reading reveals a number of numismatic references throughout the text, many of them pertaining to medals, but encompassing also the circulating coinage and even bank notes. The author visits Thomas Jefferson at Monticello and spends two months enjoying New Orleans. This first English edition was published the same year as the original appeared in German. Clark III: 14. Graff 279. Howes B385. Sabin 4953.

        An Historical Sketch of the Greek Revolution

      White, Gallagher & White, 1828-01-01. First Edition. Hardcover. Good. 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. (Gitter, The Imprisoned Guest, 2001)

        A history of the life and voyages of Christopher Columbus

      New York: G. & C. Carvill 8vo (22 cm; 8.625"). 3 vols. I: xvi, 399 pp., 1 folded map. II: viii, [1], 10–367. III: viii, [1], 14–419, [1] pp.. 1828 First American edition of Irving's somewhat fanciful yet readable work on Christopher Columbus. Irving notes in the preface "the sight of disjointed papers and official documents is apt to be repulsive to the general reader" so he has decided to create a narrative rather than simply translate pertinent documents related to Columbus as originally asked. This edition comes with a => large folding map of Columbus' route through the Bahama Islands. Binding: Gorgeous 19th-century acid-stained autumnal binding: Covers framed with a gilt floral roll and brilliantly crossed with bands of walnut brown, ochre, deep green, russet red, black, and grey, all => very bright. Spines gilt extra with compartment devices and multiple interesting rolls, and bearing black leather gilt labels; board edges touched at corners with gilt; marbled endpapers. Provenance: Signature of Sam Baird on front endpaper and title-page of vol. I and half-title of vol. II. As described in the BAL, signature sign 6 is not present on p. 41 in vol. I and the last page of vol. III is unnumbered. Bound as above, bindings moderately rubbed with one sliver of leather lost at a joint and a small patch lost near the bottom of one back cover. Age-toning, foxing, and some other spotting; some corners creased (some corners improperly trimmed during manufacture. Inscriptions as above, light pencilling on endpapers of one volume; map wrinkled with some old light staining and a tear repaired some time ago from back, with cloth tape — folds strong. => A classic semi-historical work most strikingly bound.

      - Vienna, Typis viduae Antonii Strauss, 1828. Large folio (485 x 340mm). pp. (x), 34, with 105 fine hand-coloured engraved plates. Contemporary marbled boards. First edition of this magnificent monograph on willows. A large uncut copy. The plates are by J. Ibmayer, who also did the illustrations for the author's work on grasses. It is one of the last great Austrian botanical books stemming from the Jacquin's 'golden age' of Imperial patronage. The plates are very much in the 'Jacquin' style, elegantly engraved and highly coloured in watercolours and bodycolours.Host (1761-1834) was Imperial physician to Franz I and Jacquin's successor as the director of the Schönbrunn Botanic Gardens, a position he held for over 40 years. A second volume of this work was planned (hence the 'Vol. I' on the title) but never published; the manuscript material for this volume is in the Porträtsammlung of the Nationalbibliothek, Vienna. "It emerges from the foreword to 'Salix' that Host had hiked through 'the provinces of Austria', had examined the willows in their natural surroundings, had cultivated them, and observed them at all seasons." (H.W. Lack, Garden Eden p. 420).The work is quite rare, and the only copy to appear at auction in recent years was the De Belder copy (Sotheby's, April 27, 1987, lot 165 Pounds 15400 and same copy Christie's, March 17, 1999, lot 44 Pounds 16.000).Provenance: Title and dedication leaf with with oval stamp 'Siebenbürgischer Verein für Nat.

"Brongiart originally planned to publish two volumes with 160 plates each in 24 fascicles.

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.

        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

      1828 - de X, 336 pages et 2 planches Paris et Londres, J.S. Chaudé & J.B. Baillière, 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. Tableau des principaux sons obtenus par la percussion médiate en guise de deuxième planche. Rousseurs et cachets de l'Institut Catholique de Paris. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      (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.

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.

        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'.

        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. Erste Ausgabe. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
