        Catalogue d'une Collection d'Editions Elzeviriennes et d'autres bons livres dépendans de la Bibliothèque de M. A.-A. R., dont la vente se fera…26 janvier 1829, et jours suivans…

      viii, 332 (i.e. 132) pp. 8vo, attractive antique half-calf & marbled boards, flat spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Paris: J.S. Merlin, 1829. The very uncommon sale catalogue of Renouard's great collection of more than 200 Elzeviers, formed over a fifty year period. To this collection, Renouard has added about another 11100 titles (1397 lots in total) from his personal collection. In his preface, Renouard stresses that his Elzeviers were in the finest possible condition with many being in original state ("virginal") with uncut edges. Renouard (1765-1853), originally a manufacturer and involved in late revolutionary politics, became a collector, publisher, and bookseller. He achieved bibliographic immortality through his bibliographies of the Aldine and Estienne presses, indispensable to the present day. Renouard was one of the two or three most important French booksellers in the first half of the 19th century. Fine copy.

        A New Guy Fawkes Speech

      1829. London, 1829. 9-3/4" x 7-1/2". London, 1829. 9-3/4" x 7-1/2" "Kind Folks You See, Our Effigy, Designed for Guy Fawkes; Who With Base Mind, Was Once Inclin'd to Give King James Hard Knocks" [Broadside]. Guy Fawkes Day. A New Guy Fawkes Speech. [London]: E. Billing, 186, Bermondsey Street, [c.1840]. 9-3/4" x 7-1/2" broadside. Six-stanza verse text within woodcut typographical border, first four stanzas in two columns, separated by woodcut rules below headline and vignette of a group of people burning Fawkes in effigy. Light toning, otherwise fine. A well-preserved rare item. $650. * A celebratory broadside commemorating Guy Fawkes Day. Also known as Guy Fawkes Night, Bonfire Night or Firework Night, it is an English national holiday commemorating the failed Gunpowder Plot, an attempt by a group of Catholics to assassinate King James I by blowing up the House of Lords during the State Opening of Parliament. The plot was foiled when Fawkes was discovered with a cache of explosives hidden beneath the House of Lords. The date of our broadside is conjectured from a similar broadside by Billing with a contemporary handwritten date of 1829 held by the National Library of Scotland. The verses on that copy end with "God save the King." Ours ends with "God save the Queen," so we assume it was printed in the early years of Queen Victoria's reign, which began in 1837. OCLC locates no copies.

Halbleder. - Brockhaus, (1772 - 1823), als Sohn des Kaufmanns und Ratsherrn Johann Heinrich in Düsseldorf zum Kaufmann ausgebildet. Ein kurzer Studienaufenthalt in Leipzig 1793/94 legte den Grundstein für seine umfassende Allgemeinbildung. 1796 gründete B. in Dortmund mit zwei Kompagnons eine eigene Großhandelsfirma für englische Manufakturwaren. Nach einem Zerwürfnis mit seinen Partnern entschloß er sich, nach Holland zu gehen, in das Hauptabsatzgebiet seines Unternehmens; zunächst in Arnheim, ließ er sich 1802 in Amsterdam nieder und machte sich selbständig. Wegen der Auswirkungen, die die Kontinentalsperre auf das Geschäft hatte, wechselte B. 1805 zum Buchhandel und gründete in Amsterdam die Buchhandlung Rohloff & Comp. (seit 1807 Kunst- und Industrie-Comptoir). Seit 1814 trägt der Verlag den Namen F. A. Brockhaus. Auf der Leipziger Buchhändlermesse zu Michaelis 1808 kaufte B. die Rechte an einem unvollendeten Konversationslexikon, das 1796 von Renatus Gotthelf Löbel und Christian Wilhelm Franke begonnen worden war. Den Restbestand dieses Werkes lieferte er seit 1809 unter dem neuen Titel Conversations-Lexikon oder kurz gefaßtes Handwörterbuch (6 Bde.) aus; 1809 und 1811 erschienen zwei Ergänzungsbände. B. pendelte zunächst zwischen Amsterdam und Leipzig, siedelte mit dem Verlag 1811 ins ostthüringische Altenburg über und verlegte 1817/18 den Firmensitz schließlich nach Leipzig, wo er eine eigene Druckerei errichtete. 1818 wurde er Leipziger Bürger und baute systematisch seinen Verlag aus. Er pflegte Literatur und Wissenschaft und wurde der erste Verleger Schopenhauers, zunächst von "Die Welt als Wille und Vorstellung" (1819), später von dessen Gesamtwerk. Bis zu B.’ Tod zählte der Verlag u.a. Friedrich von Raumer, Henrik Steffens, Friedrich Rückert und Johann Heinrich Voß zu seinen Autoren. . Das Konversationslexikon wurde ein großer Erfolg; die fünfte Auflage erschien 1819/20 in zehn Bänden unter dem Titel Allgemeine Deutsche Real-Encyklopädie für die gebildeten Stände (Conversations-Lexicon). In den knapp 18 Jahren seines Wirkens in Leipzig rückte B. in die erste Reihe der deutschen und international anerkannten Verleger auf. Er kämpfte mit seinen Standesgenossen erfolgreich gegen Nachdruck und Zensur und konnte seinem Sohn Heinrich, der in der Leitung des Unternehmens nachfolgte, ein wohlbestelltes Haus übergeben. Seine entscheidende Leistung lag darin, daß er den Namen Brockhaus zum Synonym für Konversationslexika machte und die deutsche Lexikographie im 19.Jh. zu ihren großen Erfolgen führte. (DBE) - Hier die wohl interessanteste Ausgabe des Lexikons in der Originalfassung, laut Brockhaus zufolge die, die die "aufgeregte politische Stimmung des Jahres 1819 verraten" habe.

A New Guy Fawkes Speech. [London]: E. Billing, 186, Bermondsey Street, [c.1840]. 9-3/4" x 7-1/2" broadside. Six-stanza verse text within woodcut typographical border, first four stanzas in two columns, separated by woodcut rules below headline and vignette of a group of people burning Fawkes in effigy. Light toning, otherwise fine. A well-preserved rare item. $650. * A celebratory broadside commemorating Guy Fawkes Day. Also known as Guy Fawkes Night, Bonfire Night or Firework Night, it is an English national holiday commemorating the failed Gunpowder Plot, an attempt by a group of Catholics to assassinate King James I by blowing up the House of Lords during the State Opening of Parliament. The plot was foiled when Fawkes was discovered with a cache of explosives hidden beneath the House of Lords. The date of our broadside is conjectured from a similar broadside by Billing with a contemporary handwritten date of 1829 held by the National Library of Scotland. The verses on that copy end with "God save the King." Ours ends with "God save the Queen," so we assume it was printed in the early years of Queen Victoria's reign, which began in 1837.

        History of the Afghans: Translated from the Persian of Neamet Ullah

      London: Printed for the Oriental Translation Committee, 1829-36 - 2 parts quarto bound as one. Original green sand-grain cloth, paper label to spine. A little rubbed, spine label chipping and slightly scuffed, but largely legible, front hinge just started and the first quire slightly loose as a consequence, endpapers browned, light toning throughout, a very good copy. First edition. Dorn (1805–1881) was a pioneer in many areas of Iranian studies in Russia. "He was particularly interested in the Pashtuns and published annotated editions and translations of texts on tribal history. Dorn never visited Afghanistan, but he nevertheless established the scientific basis for Afghan studies, particularly the first systematic description of Pashto" (Encyclopaedia Iranica). Ni'mat Allah al-Harawi (fl. 1613–1630), called Nimatullah, was a chronicler and waqia-navis, or court reporter, at the court of the Moghul Emperor Jahangir. He compiled the Makhzan-i-Afghani from materials accumulated by Haibat Khan of Samana, and, while some of the content is somewhat fanciful, the book was a major source for the origins of the Pashtuns, also including the genealogies of the Afghan rulers in Bengal and some events contemporary with its composition. For this translation Dorn used a copy from the library of the Royal Asiatic Society: "it is very carelessly written, by one Fut'h Khan, for his own use, in the year 1131 of the Hejra (a.d. 1718)" (Preface).

        THE FREE ENQUIRER. VOLUME I.

      New York. Oct. 28, 1828 - Oct. 21, 1829. - [4],416pp., printed in three-column format. Comprised of fifty-two weekly numbers, continuously paginated. Quarto. Three-quarter calf and blue paper boards, spine gilt with leather label. Extremities rubbed. Contemporary bookplate on front pastedown. Lightly foxed; minor dampstaining at top edge. Very good. This periodical continues the work begun by the NEW HARMONY GAZETTE, recording the utopian projects and ideas of Robert Dale Owen, and others associated with the New Harmony community in Indiana. After three years of publication in Indiana, the NEW HARMONY GAZETTE was moved to New York and renamed THE FREE ENQUIRER in October 1828, surviving until 1835. In the first issue of this new series, Owen remarks on the move to New York: "If free enquiry be impracticable in New York, it must be so everywhere, while, should it successfully elicit truth here, the same would spread far and wide." This first volume of the renamed publication was co-edited by Owen, feminist Frances ("Fanny") Wright, and Robert L. Jennings. Although the New Harmony community lasted only two years under Owen's leadership, the present volume reflects the continued feverish activity of those involved with the community, with more essays on a wide variety of controversial subjects, including the abolition of slavery, religious freedom, Fanny Wright and Robert Owen on women's rights, agriculture, a new social system, gymnastics, equalization of property, cooperative associations, popular education, and the like.

        Early Botanical Manuscriot with Drawings, in French Entitled - Extrait de cours de botanique agricole de M. De Candolle, 1828 - Pre-Darwinian Natural Selection

      Geneva, 1829. Extensive manuscript on agricultural botany, drawing from the previous year's lectures of Swiss botanist Augustin Pyramus De Candolle, a prolific writer on botanical subjects, one of the founders of phytogeography. Text is in French. The writer is not identified, but most presumably a student of botany who attended de Candolle's lectures. 8vo. 284 pages comprising 32 lectures, with occasional manuscript diagrams to margins. Bound in green speckled continental paper boards, manuscript label to spine. Volume measures approximately 18 x 23 cm. A later manuscript inscription made in October 1858 reveals that this volume was purchased at a private sale in Lyon. Some wear to boards, otherwise in very good condition, clean and bright, an extensive work in a fine hand. Foremost discoveries in the field of botany and aspects related to one particularly revolutionary theory - Pre-Darwinian Natural Selection - are revealed in this early and meticulous manuscript which records the works of the accomplished pioneering botanist Augustin Pyramus de Candolle (1778-1841). For the second running, in 1828, Augustin de Candolle taught the course he called "Botanique Agricole" comprising some 40 lectures and held at the Musée Académique in Geneva (which was founded by Henri Boissier in 1818, and became 'Musée d'histoire naturelle' in 1872). His son Alphone wrote a memoire to him, in it listing the nearly 2900 lectures given by him in 40 courses, over a span of 31 years. The writer of this volume is a nineteenth century pupil or keen enthusiast of botany, immediately upon completion of the program, has taken his course notes and presented the invaluable information in an exemplary and thorough volume for easy reference. His identity is not revealed, although accessing the original course registration list may lead to the answer and could find him to have become a notable botanist or naturalist - there were 60 people enrolled in this course. Both teacher and student were contemporaries of esteemed men such as Charles Darwin, Charles Lyell, and Alfred Wallace, all of whom are connected to the theory of natural selection. The introduction outlines the three distinct sections of the volume - the physical properties of plants, the objective of cultivation, and local circumstances. This work dates to a pivotal time in botanical history, when the concept of natural selection had been first presented by De Candolle, but not yet examined by Lyell and not yet elaborated upon by Darwin. De Candolle originated the idea of the "war of nature", which influenced Charles Darwin and the principle of "natural selection". As early as 1820 he wrote of plants being "at war one with another" referring to different species competing for space and resources, and, as seen in this volume, in 1829 he was lecturing on the subject. Charles Darwin studied de Candolle's "natural system" of classification in 1826 when he was at the University of Edinburgh. In the inception of his theory, in 1838, Darwin considered de Candolle's "warring of the species", adding that it was even more strongly conveyed by Thomas Malthus, producing the pressures that Darwin later called natural selection. In 1839 de Candolle visited Britain and Darwin invited him to dinner, allowing the two scientists the opportunity to discuss the concept. Natural Selection is the process whereby organisms better adapted to their environment tend to survive and produce more offspring. The theory of its action was introduced by de Candolle and first fully expounded by Charles Darwin. A cornerstone of modern biology, it is now believed to be the main process that brings about evolution. In his "Principles of Geology" published in 1832 Charles Lyell mentions and gives consideration to de Candolle's anticipation of natural selection. The concept was first published by Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace in a joint presentation of papers in 1858, and was elaborated upon in Darwin's influential 1859 title "On the Origin of Species..." some 40 years after de Candolle introduce it. In the present volume, De Candolle uses another botanist's experiment in assessing a plant's need for water, and through that, illustrates the inherent competition between plants for survival, each rapidly absorbing all nutrients near its roots. [p.62] Interest in allelopathy (French: allélopathie) in the first half of the nineteenth century has been linked primarily to one man, Augustin Pyramus de Candolle, and is presented in the manuscript. Allelopathy is a biological phenomenon by which an organism produces one or more biochemicals that influence or inhibit the germination, growth, survival, and reproduction of other organisms. Allelopathic excretions therefore can act as significant agents in a plant's competition against another, which is the essence of "natural selection." In this volume, the effects opium specifically is discussed, in terms of toxicity to other plants, citing experiments made by contemporary scientists, and referring to contractility. [p.57] Further reading may find direct a reference to de Candolle's introduction to natural selection. Excerpts from the manuscript, pertaining to the war of nature: "Duhamel a prouvé le contraire en faisant végéter beaucoup de plantes dans le même sol. Si les plantes sont trop rapprochés elles se nuisent en s'étiolant, mais sourtout en absorbant très vite toute l'eau qui environnene leurs racines." [Duhamel proved the contrary by planting many plants in the same soil. If the plants are too close together, they deteriorate by becoming etiolated (weak and pale), but in particular by absorbing very quickly all the water which surrounds their roots.] "L'opium et d'autres substances... qui agissent sur les nerfs des animaux, sont évidemment nuissibles aux végétaux... ils peuvent agir sur les organes de la contralité des uns et des autres..." [Opium and other substances ... which affect the nerves of animals, are obviously harmful to plants as well... they can be contracted from one organ to another.] During his work with plants, de Candolle noticed that plant leaf movements, now known as nyctinasty, follow a near-24-hour cycle in constant light, suggesting that an internal biological clock exists. Though many prominent botanists including Julius Sachs adopted the view, many other scientists doubted de Candolle's findings. Experiments over a century later demonstrated that "the internal biological clock indeed exists". Interestingly, the present lectures pre-date de Candolle's own breakthrough in chronobiology in 1832 when he observed that the plant 'Mimosa pudica' had a unique internal clock of sorts, based on approximately 22-23 hours, as opposed to the earth's 24 hour light cycle. From this deviation he rightfully concluded that "the sleep-wake movements are connected with a disposition for periodic motion that is inherent in the plant." Excerpts from the manuscript, pertaining to nyctinasty (French: nyctinasie): "Les feuilles ont toujours dans leur surface une position déterminé, si on les retournes elles tendent toujours à reprendre leur première position par le torsion du pétiole; si on les empèche de se retourner elles meurent. Dans le saule pleureur, dont les branches sont pendantes, elle se retournent pour prendre leur position naturelle. Dans le cas ou la feuille est réduite à un phyllodium les stomates sont également repartis sur les deux faces, qui sont latérales et l'un des bonds est supérieur. C'est l'un des meilleurs caractères de cette modification de la feuille." [The leaves always have a definitive position for their surface, if they are turned they always return to their first position with a torsion of the petiole; if they are prevented from turning around they die. In the case of the weeping willow, whose branches are hanging, they turn to take their natural position. In the case where the leaf is reduced to a phyllodium, the stomata are also distributed on both sides, which are lateral and one is superior. This is one of the leading traits of this leaf modification.] "Le sommeil des plantes est du à l'absence de lumière... dans les végétaux il y a dans cette position une rigidité bien prononcé quiqu'en sache bien de ce sommeil des végétaux soit dû à l'effet de la lumière on n'a pu encore l'expliquer. Bonnet l'avait attribué à l'hygroscopicité, mais le même phénomène s'opère sous l'eau et dans les serres" [The sleeping state the plants is due to the absence of light... Vegetation features a very pronounced rigidity is in this state, however, although it is known that the sleep state of vegetation is due to the effect of light, it has not yet been explained. Bonnet attributed it to hygroscopicity, but the same phenomenon occurs under water and in greenhouses.] Throughout his forty years' work in botany, he endeavored to discover the innate laws of the plant world, by tracing and observing their organs and appendages in all their transformations, and noting any apparent anomalies. In this volume, the section on plant reproduction and floral organs refers to two now obsolete terms "phanerogam" and "cryptogam." The Phanerogamia is a former primary division of plants comprising those having reproductive organs; being a flowering plant or seed plant. The Cryptogamia is a former primary division of plants that reproduce by spores, having no true flowers or seeds, such as the ferns, mosses, fungi, and algae. A veteran botanist, de Candolle also wrote about crops and wild plants, which was most uncommon at the time, and which is touched upon here. Some plants from the British colonies are discussed, from India and elsewhere, one example being the leafs of the Bryophyllum in the Crassulaceae family, originally native to South Africa, Madagascar, and Asia. Examining the various factors which affect the growth of plants, he describes at least one foreign plant that is capable of acclimatizing to a wide range in temperature. Another chapter describes greenhouses, including grafting, light, fertilizing remarks on cultivation, from sowing to harvest, and more. A small sampling of other subjects in this voluminous work include: cellular structure; the endogenous rib structure of a leaf and other features of morphology; hygroscopicity of tissue; a comparison between nutrition of vegetation and animals; absorption; atmospheric influences and environment; the phanerogam (seed plants) including the structure of its seed, albumen, embryo, germination, and the conservation of seeds; and so forth. In the nineteenth century, the functionality and the flow of sap was little understood. Always endeavouring to uncover new information and observe theories, De Candolle refers to the botanical experiments by horticulturalist and botanist Thomas Andrew Knight (1759-1838). Excerpts from the manuscript: "Dans le 17e siècle, parent croyant que la sève montait dans la plante par la moelle... On a encore quelque incertitude sur la route que suit la sève..." [Popular belief in the 17th century was that sap rose in the plant through the marrow... There is still some uncertainty on the path that the sap follows.] Page 78-80 "Le sève non élaborée ne nourrit pas les plantes, il faut l'action de l'air et l'élaboration de l'eau surabondante... Knight a fait l'incission annulaire à un chène et il a trouvé que la pourcentage specifique du bois au dessus de l'incission était de 114 et 112 au déssous (l'eau pesant 100). Il fait la même opération sur un sapin... Toute que nous venons de dire et très clair pour les exogènes, mais dès qu'on en vient aux palmiers on se passe à l'intérieur, qu'on lie l'intérieur cela n'aura aucune action sur le lui come prouve l'expérience qu'a Mr De Candolle d'un palmier entouré de lianes." [The unelaborated sap does not nourish the plant, it requires the action of air and the elaboration of superabundant water... Knight made an annular incision to an oak and found that the specific percentage of wood above the incision was 114, and 112 at the bottom (water weighing 100). He performed the same operation on a fir tree... All that we have just explained is very clear for the exogenous, but as we observe palm trees on the inside, that if one binds the inside it will have no impact on it as proven by the experiment of Mr De Candolle on a palm tree surrounded by creepers.] "Les plantes dans leur culture, ou même dans l'état sauvage peuvent avoir: 1e. trop de lumière; 2e trop peu de lumière; 3e ou une lumière mal dirigée..." [The plants in their culture, or even in the wild state may have: 1. too much light; 2. too little light; or, 3. a misdirected light.] Several important botanists and naturalists are mentioned in the manuscript, some of whom include: Charles Bonnet (1720-1793) - Genevan naturalist and philosophical writer Henri-Louis Duhamel du Monceau (1700-1782) - celebrated French botanist, physician, and naval engineer Pierre Magnol (1638-1715) - French botanist and professor in the field Nicolas-Théodore de Saussure (1767-1845) - Swiss botanist and pioneer in plant physiology Joseph Knight (1778-1855) - gardener to George Hibbert, author of the controversial 1853 publication 'First general report of the Government Botanist on the Vegetation of the Colony' Joseph Priestley (1733-1804) - English theologian, natural philosopher, chemist. Augustin Pyramus de Candolle (1778-1841) was a renowned Swiss botanist, his contemporaries being William Hooker, Charles Darwin, and Charles Lyell, among others. He also contributed to related fields such as phytogeography, agronomy, paleontology, medical botany, and economic botany. He published several books and numerous lectures. In 1804, de Candolle published his "Essai sur les propriétés médicales des plantes" and was granted a doctor of medicine degree by the medical faculty of Paris. In 1804 he also began giving botany lectures in the College de France. In 1807 he was appointed professor of botany in the medical faculty of the University of Montpellier, where he would later become the first chair of botany in 1810. His "Théorie élémentaire de la botanique" introduced a new classification system and the term 'taxonomy'. From 1816 to his final years, he worked earnestly at elaborating and completing his natural system of botanical classification. [His son Alphonse Pyramus de Candolle was a firm believer in Natural Selection. He also continued his father's exhaustive work on plant classification, his son also continuing after him.] Especially skilled in taxonomy, De Candolle was a systematist, who, together with De Jussieaus in France, William Hooker and Robert Brown in England, gradually created more natural systems of classifications based on morphological features and positional relations, the likes of which had been supported by Erasmus Darwin (Charles Darwin's father), to replace the rigid sex-based system of Linnaeus. He is remembered in the plant genera Candollea and Candolleodendron, several plant species like Eugenia candolleana or Diospyros candolleana and the mushroom Psathyrella candolleana. Candollea, a scientific journal that publishes papers on systematic botany and phylotaxonomy, was named after de Candolle and his descendants in honor of their contribution to the field of botany. Augustin de Candolle was the first of four generations of botanists in the de Candolle dynasty..

        Small Archive of Materials Relating to American Entrepreneur George Francis Train

      - George Francis Train (1829-1904) was an extraordinarily energetic businessman who first made his fortune as the organizer of the White Diamond Line, which sent clipper ships around Cape Horn to San Francisco. He later became a great enthusiast of rail travel, establishing the first British street railway, and helping to fund and promote the Union Pacific Railroad. He ran for President of the United States in 1872, traveled around the world several times, and claimed to be the basis for the character of Phineas Fogg in Jules Verne's Around the World in 80 Days. This archive includes: 1) An ALS from Train to William Henry Bailhache, business manager of the State Journal (Springfield, IL), with original postmarked envelope, also signed by Train. Written from Omaha on December 18, 1868, the note reads in part "Chinese Mandarins - good for you. Means halfway station from Paris to Pekin. Passengers for China this way." 2) A Bailhache family copy of Train's book, My Life in Many States and Foreign Lands (First edition, 1902; very good, with spine slant). 3) A one-page, printed letter by Train, sent "to every Corporation in England, Ireland, and Scotland, and every one of the fifty-two parishes in London" complaining that the British have failed to accept his previous applications to install street railways and repeating his application: "Again I apply: this time as President of a Corporation, whose partners are among the wealthiest men of our nation, for the privilege of putting down Rails in your Streets, and, at the same time, give you this notice that I shall take every Legal measure to protect my rights.as Promoter, Introducer, and Patentee of Street Railways in Great Britain and Ireland.I seldom sow seed that does not ripen in time, and I reap the harvest thereof. The cordial reception of the American Yachts, and the recent friendly tone of the English Press, indicates that Englishmen, some day, will do justice to Americans." 4) A three-page printed document providing the text of Train's four previous applications (1859, 1861, 1862, 1864) to install street railways in Great Britain, and providing ridership statistics for the Surrey Side Street Railway, which he was permitted to established in 1861. Items 3 & 4 were likely enclosed with the letter to Bailhache. Both men were honored guests on the Union Pacific Railroad's celebratory excursion to the 100th Meridian (Nebraska) in 1866.

        Small Archive of Materials Relating to American Entrepreneur George Francis Train

      Very good. George Francis Train (1829-1904) was an extraordinarily energetic businessman who first made his fortune as the organizer of the White Diamond Line, which sent clipper ships around Cape Horn to San Francisco. He later became a great enthusiast of rail travel, establishing the first British street railway, and helping to fund and promote the Union Pacific Railroad. He ran for President of the United States in 1872, traveled around the world several times, and claimed to be the basis for the character of Phineas Fogg in Jules Verne's Around the World in 80 Days. This archive includes: 1) An ALS from Train to William Henry Bailhache, business manager of the State Journal (Springfield, IL), with original postmarked envelope, also signed by Train.
