        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Karlsruhe, 5. II. 1829.. 2 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 4to. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief).. An den Verleger Wilmans in Frankfurt: "Da ich keine sichere Aussicht habe daß die mir am 29 Jenner zugetheilte Zeichnung hier gestochen werden kann, so sende ich dieselbe beyfolgend wieder an Sie zurück. Mein Schwiegersohn Schnell der allerdings geneigt wäre diesen Gegenstand mit Geschmack zu bearbeiten, lebt seit dem letzten Nov. in seiner Vaterstadt Darmstadt. Ich konnte ihm allso [!] diese Arbeit nicht vorlegen; auch muß ich vermuthen, daß er im Laufe dieses Jahres wegen bestellter Sachen nichts weiteres annehmen kann [...] Ich habe mit hl. Prof. Frommel in Ihren Angelegenheiten gesprochen, und ich vermuthe, daß er nicht abgeneigt ist die Platte zu übernehmen [...]". - Christian Haldenwang war Schüler und langjähriger Mitarbeiter Christian von Mechels in Basel und übernahm 1796 als Meister der Aquatinta-Technik in Dessau Aufträge für die Chalkographische Gesellschaft. "1804 wurde er Hofkupferstecher in Karlsruhe. Haldenwang schuf vor allem Landschaftsstiche; als sein Hauptwerk gelten vier Blätter nach den Tageszeiten von Claude Lorrain" (DBE).

        Chart of part of New South Wales with plans of the harbours. Respectfully dedicated to John Oxley, Esq., Surveyor-General

      London: Joseph Cross, 1829. Large hand-coloured engraved map, 990 x 640 mm., dissected and backed on linen as issued; folding into an early binding of half blue grained calf, marbled sides; in very good condition. With an inset depicting Port Phillip. One of the great maps of New South Wales: this very fine and handsome map is notable for a series of important inset charts including Moreton Bay, Port Jackson, and Port Phillip. One of the most consulted of any of the Australian maps of this era, it is dedicated to John Oxley, then Surveyor General of New South Wales.The map was evidently a publishing success, as Cross printed several different versions in the period. The first version of the map was issued in 1826 and is easily recogniseable as it features a series of vignette views. In 1827 the basic map was reused but this time the vignettes were replaced by inset maps, and over ensuing years this version of the map was subtly updated and re-issued: this is the 1829 issue "corrected". Any issue is now of some rarity.The inset charts show: Moreton Bay, Port Macquarie, Port Stephens, Port Hunter, Broken Bay, Port Jackson, Botany Bay, Jervis Bay, Twofold Bay, Western Port, and Port Phillip. There is also an inset depiction of the entire Australian coastline. The map also prints a very detailed picture of the state of inland exploration, notably including the relatively recent discoveries of Hume and Hovell.The London publisher Cross was responsible for any number of important publications relating to Australia in the 1820s and 1830s, and was perhaps the most influential promoter of the colonies at that time.

        Manuscript - Album amoricum - 29 pencil and ink Drawings

      England, 1829. England and Wales, 1829-1834. Album amoricum containing 29 pencil and ink drawings, 12 of which are in colour, as well as poetic works. 8vo. 38 pages in manuscript, many of which are drawings. Entries are mostly initialled and dated. Leather boards with tooling and gilt, printed title page. Volume measures approximately 20 x 16 cm. Minor wear to boards, split internally at hinge yet remaining solid, otherwise in very good condition, clean and bright, a most unique and appealing volume. A collective work of exceptional drawings with vibrant colour and remarkable depth, made by an intimate group of uniquely artistic contributors. The gifted authors and artists number approximately ten, the most frequent identifying themselves as R.M.G. and W. Price. Three illustrations of notable talent are ambiguously initialled J.Y.R., whom certainly possessed the skill of a professional artist. Most uncommon is a tinted sketch drawing of a human skull to illustrate a pensive poem about those who fought and lost their lives in the Battle of Waterloo in 1815, titled "Lines on a Scull (brought form the Field of Waterloo]." We also find a sketch of Napoleon's tomb accompanied by a poem, and followed by "a translation of the introductory stanzas of an unpublished poem by Lucien Bonaparte entitle The Cirneide..." [Lucien Bonaparte, 1st Prince of Canino and Musignano, is a younger brother of Napoleon Bonaparte] Two remarkably charming images illustrate childhood creativity as young boys imitate a marching band and make musical instruments from simple household items. Indicative of the contributor's current surroundings and historic nobility, pencil sketches depict among other things, the Conway (Conwy) Castle and suspension bridge in Wales, Kirkstall Abbey in Leeds, and a covered boat floating on the Regent's Canal in north central London - its first section from Paddington to Camden Town, having opened in only a few years prior in 1816. Other items of interest are the exquisite coloured and gilded butterflies, a brief musical score, a poem by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe about birds, and drawings of ancient castles including a harbour fortress. The album amicorum, or book of friends, a precursor to modern-day autograph books, originated in German and Dutch linguistic regions (possibly originating in Wittenberg) in the middle of the sixteenth century. By the end of the century, they were common throughout Germany among students and scholars. Academics tended to retain the books for many years and gather the correspondence of fellow intellectuals with whom they associated; therefore the books began to function not only as sentimental artefacts but also as a crude form of scholarly credentials, a form of the modern "list of references". In the 18th century they came into use among members of the burgeoning middle class. This new wave of autograph curators included women as well as men. Professors and fellow students made contributions to these albums, including inscriptions and illustrations, which were often by significant scholars or professional artists of the time. A typical volume began with a formal greeting to the album's owner or, in the case of English volumes, an address to its contributors, sometimes also including a heraldic shield or emblematic illustration by the signator. Contributions usually contained drawings, personal messages, and small pieces of verse. Inscriptions were often a few pages in length. Artistic autographers sketched full-page drawings, while less conventional entries included engravings or mementos such as embroidery, paper silhouettes, locks of hair, or pressed flowers.. Very Good.

      Charlottesville, VA: F. Carr, and Co, 1829. First edition edited by Thomas Jefferson Randolph. Hardcover. 466; 500; 519; 532pp. Octavo [23.5 cm] 1/4 brown cloth with gray paper over boards and printed paper title labels on the spines, as originally issued. Top edges rough-trimmed; other edges deckled. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Thomas Jefferson in volume 4. Indexed. Good only. The extremities are mildly rubbed. Most of the covers have large, but light damp stains. The paper title labels are a bit chipped at the edges, and there are several small splits in the cloth along the joints. The pages are foxed, and have sporadic light tide marks. The largest tide marks measure 4" wide by 1" deep. A couple of the volumes have faint contemporary notations on the preliminary pages. The text blocks are cracked multiple times. The text block of volume 1 is beginning to pull away from the backstrip. Volume 1 is missing p. 193/94. Volumes 2-4 each have a handful of pages which are just hanging on by a thread. There is a small loss from the front flyleaf of volume 3. With a facsimile of the rough draught of the Declaration of Independence at the rear of volume 4. A set in original bindings of the first publication of Jefferson's letters following his death, published in Charlottesville, and edited by Thomas Jefferson's grandson, in an attempt to take control of his grandfather's legacy. This edition included a small portion of his actual letters, and was carefully edited by Jefferson's family, omitting subjects which were considered controversial.

        Geschichte und Statut der Rosen-Ritterschaft.

      (Berlin, wohl Juli 1829).. 8vo (20 : 12 cm). 20 S. Bedruckter Original-Umschlag unter einem Halbleinenband des späteren 19. Jahrhunderts.. Außerordentlich seltener Separatdruck der Seiten 373-392 von Herzog Karls um 1830 erschienenen "Erinnerungen an Berlin". Der Abschnitt beschließt dort die Beschreibung des Festspiels "Der Zauber der weissen Rose", von ihm am 13. Juli 1829 zum Geburtstagsbesuch von Zarin Alexandra Feodorowna, der vormaligen Prinzessin Charlotte von Preußen, im Potsdamer Neuen Palais inszeniert. Der Reimtext stellt eine Allegorie auf die Jugend der preußischen Königskinder, ihr Heranwachsen und ihre Vermählungen dar. Im Mittelpunkt steht "Blancheflour", Charlottes Identifikationsfigur aus Fouques "Zauberring", einer Lieblingslektüre der Geschwister. Wir vermuten einen Vorabdruck für den engsten Hofkreis zum Fest selbst. Er weist eigene Paginierung und Bogennorm auf, der Titel findet sich nur auf dem Umschlag, noch nicht am Textkopf. Die doppelte Fußnote auf p. 391 der "Erinnerungen" fehlt noch, daher läuft der bis dahin parallele Satz ab p. 17 des Heftes etwas abweichend. Textvarianten sind nicht festzustellen. Der Roseton des Papiers macht den Anlaß augenfällig, weißes hätte keinen Effekt gemacht. - Heftung brüchig, kleine Tintenflecken am Rückumschlag, Papiertönung etwas verblaßt.

        Drei Mädchen aus Goßfelden bei Marburg in ihrer Tracht (Hinterländer Tracht).

      . Radierung, 1829, auf Velin. 22,2:19,7 cm. Zwei kleine Braunflecken und kleiner Einriß im Unterrand. Literatur: Stoll 163, II (von II), vollendet.. Grimm hielt sich 1829 in Marburg, Großfelden und Amöneburg auf. Er skizzierte wahrscheinlich die Mädchen wegen ihrer ortsunüblichen Tracht: Die Haubenformen verweisen sie in die Gegend um Biedenkopf und Gladenbach (Hinterland); vgl. hierzu Album Marburg, S. 89. Ludwig Emil Grimms Maxime, treu nach der Natur zu zeichnen, und seine besondere Liebe zum Detail sind bei der Darstellung der Trachten von besonderem Vorzug.Der vor allem als Radierer tätige Grimm war 1804-1808 Schüler der Kasseler Kunstakademie bei Gottlieb Kobold (1769-1809), Andreas Range (1762-1828) und Ernst Friedrich Ferdinand Robert (1763-1843). Durch seine Brüder Jacob und Wilhelm Grimm wurde er mit Clemens Brentano (1778-1842) und Achim von Arnim (1781-1831) bekannt, mit denen er zusammenarbeitete. Wohl 1807 lernte Grimm Bettine Brentano (1785-1859) kennen, von der er zahlreiche Porträts anfertigte. In November 1808 zog er nach Landshut zu Brentano und dessen Schwager Friedrich Carl von Savigny (1779-1861). Auf ihre Vermittlung ging er nach München und erlernte Kupferstechen bei Carl Ernst Christoph Heß (1755-1828). Zugleich studierte er an der Münchner Akademie unter Andreas Seidl (1760-1834). Unterbrechung des Studiums 1814 durch Teilnahme an den Freiheitskriegen. Mit Georg Brentano reiste er im Frühjahr 1816 nach Italien, wo er zwei Monate blieb. 1817 kehrte er nach Kassel zurück. 1824 reiste Grimm zum ersten Mal nach Willingshausen und wurde zum Mitbegründer der Willingshäuser Malerkolonie, eine der ersten Malerkolonien Deutschlands. 1832 wurde er an die Kasseler Kunstakademie als Lehrer berufen.

Die Motive für seine eigenen Naturaufnahmen fand er in Sachsen, Nordböhmen (Karlsbad und Teplitz), Schlesien und dem Spreewald.

His suture, probably a precursor of Veau's wire suture, was undoubtedly an advance." McDowell - "In 1826 J.F. Dieffenbach, of Germany, overcame the problem of tension at the line of the repair of a cleft palate (W.G.Holdsworth, 1963); he made lateral incisions along the sides of the palate to relax the edges of the cleft prior to repair."A.F.Wallace - Further we find by J.F.Dieffenbach: - Physiologische Untersuchung über die Transfusion des Blutes (pp.3-81). - Erster Abdruck der bedeutenden Arbeit des Förderers und Historiographen der Bluttransfusion. Das Werk erschien als selbständige Monographie über die "Physiologische Untersuchung über die Transfusion des Blutes" und diente als eigenständige Erweiterung seiner 1828 erschienen Monographie "Ueber Transfusion des Blutes und die Infusion der Arzneien". - Es werden nicht nur die verschiedenen Techniken berücksichtigt, sondern auch die Übertragung von Blut von verschiedenen Tierarten auf andere Tierarten. Besonders interessant sind seine Untersuchungen über die Übertragung von erkranktem wie z.B. "Einspritzung von leprösem Katzenblut in eine andere Katze". Ferner enthält die Arbeit einiges zum Thema Wiederbelebung durch Bluttransfusion. cf.

Il Lucchesini, molto critico circa l'opera del Trenta, la definisce "al tutto nuova, benché per soverchia modestia il Mazzarosa dica nel titolo di aver soltanto riformato quella del Trenta". Ne circolarono all'epoca pochissimi esemplari arricchiti della pianta della città del Nerici e delle altre cinque incisioni del Verico, ma il grosso della tiratura fu distribuito privo di carte.

The auction catalogue of the notable library of Lauwers (1755-1829), librarian of the city of Anvers. 2582 lots, including a fine collection of bibliography; priced throughout in a contemporary hand. The preliminary leaves provide a biographical account of Lauwers. "Une note du catalogue Borluut de Noortdonck, no. 5339, nous fournit les détails suivants: M. Lauwers, ayant peu de fortune, s'était imposé les plus rudes privations, afin de pouvoir enrichir de temps en temps sa bibliothèque, choisie avec beaucoup de soin et dont les exemplaires étaient tous supérieurement conditionnés. Il passait l'hiver sans feu et sans lumière, et ne dépensait que deux sous par jour pour sa nourriture, afin d'être à même de satisfaire sa passion pour les livres. Lorsque tous ses moyens pécuniaire eurent été épuisés, ce martyr de la bibliomanie aima mieux se laisser mourir de faim que de se détacher, pour en faire de l'argent, de quelques-uns de ses livres chéris. Il mourut en 1829 à l'âge de 74 ans."-Gustave Brunet, Dictionnaire de Bibliologie Catholique, col. 596. A fine copy. .

        Trattato di chimica applicata alle arti

      Stella e figli,, Milano, 1829 - Otto volumi di cm. 21, pp. 4.000 ca. complessive. Con 147 tavole incise e ripiegate fuori testo. Solida legatura coeva in mezza pelle verde, dorsi lisci con titoli e filetti in oro. Esemplare genuino ed in ottimo stato di conservazione. Edizione originale della traduzione italiana di questo celebre testo stilato da uno dei protagonisti della ricerca chimica ottocentesca. Jean-Baptiste-André Dumas (Alès 1800 - Cannes 1884) fu professore alla Sorbona (1832) e all'École Polytechnique (1835), segretario perpetuo dell'Académie des Sciences ed infine accademico di Francia. Le sue ricerche sulla densità dei vapori lo portarono a formulare (1826) un principio analogo a quello di Avogadro, dal quale dedusse il primo metodo sperimentale per la determinazione dei pesi molecolari; sempre nel 1826 propose l'uso delle equazioni chimiche per la rappresentazione delle reazioni. Determinò (1857) i pesi di combinazione di molti elementi; particolarmente importante per la successiva determinazione dei pesi atomici fu il valore esatto del peso di combinazione del carbonio nell'anidride carbonica. Contribuì inoltre ai primi tentativi di classificazione degli elementi. In chimica organica, seguace inizialmente della teoria dei radicali di J. J. Berzelius, insieme con E.-M. Peligot individuò il radicale metile e quello cinnamico; nel 1834, la scoperta che il cloro era in grado di sostituire l'idrogeno in un composto lo portò a proporre (assieme a A.-L. Laurent), in contrasto con la teoria dualistica di Berzelius, la teoria della sostituzione (da lui chiamata metalepsia), secondo la quale un atomo può sostituire un altro in un composto senza modificare sostanzialmente le sue proprietà chimiche, le quali dipendono perciò più dalla disposizione degli atomi che dalla loro natura; tale teoria ebbe un'enorme influenza per la successiva affermazione della teoria della struttura. Successivamente estese le sue idee proponendo una teoria (1840) dei "tipi" chimici (poi ripresa e ampliata da C.-F. Gerhardt) nella quale erano individuati quei composti tipo che rimangono immutati nel corso delle reazioni organiche non demolitive. Individuò (1833) un metodo per la determinazione dell'azoto organico, isolò l'antracene e determinò la formula bruta della canfora e di molti altri olî essenziali; descrisse inoltre (1843) una delle prime serie omologhe della chimica organica (quella degli acidi carbossilici, dal formico al margarico). Curò la prima edizione delle opere di A.-L. Lavoisier. L'opera da noi proposta è la sua principale produzione scientifica. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

He is best known for his short stories "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" and "Rip Van Winkle", both of which appear in his book The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent. His historical works include biographies of George Washington, Oliver Goldsmith and Muhammad, and several histories of 15th-century Spain dealing with subjects such as Christopher Columbus, the Moors, and the Alhambra. Irving served as the U.S. ambassador to Spain from 1842 to 1846. He made his literary debut in 1802 with a series of observational letters to the Morning Chronicle, written under the pseudonym Jonathan Oldstyle. After moving to England for the family business in 1815, he achieved international fame with the publication of The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent. in 1819-20. He continued to publish regularly—and almost always successfully—throughout his life, and completed a five-volume biography of George Washington just eight months before his death, at age 76, in Tarrytown, New York. Irving, along with James Fenimore Cooper, was among the first American writers to earn acclaim in Europe, and Irving encouraged American authors such as Nathaniel Hawthorne, Herman Melville, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and Edgar Allan Poe. Irving was also admired by some European writers, including Walter Scott, Lord Byron, Thomas Campbell, Francis Jeffrey, and Charles Dickens. As America's first genuine internationally best-selling author, Irving advocated for writing as a legitimate profession, and argued for stronger laws to protect American writers from copyright infringement.
