        Zur Farbenlehre. Erster ( - Zweiter) Band. Erklärungen der zu Goethe's Farbenlehre gehörigen Tafeln. Anzeige und Übersicht des Goethischen Werkes zur Farbenlehre. Ein Heft mit XVI illuminierten Kupfertafeln. Zusammen 3 Bde.

      Tübingen, Cotta 1810 (Textbde.) und (Wien, Geistinger 1830 / Tafelbd.). - 8°. (Textbde.) und 4°. (Tafelbd.). XLVIII, 654; XXVIII, 757; 24, 12 Ss. Mit 17 (!) Kup-fertafeln (auf Nr. II folgt II a [hier in umgekehrter Reihenfolge eingebunden], 12 davon handkoloriert. Halbleder d. Zt. (Tafelband abweichend gebunden), etwas berieben und bestoßen, sparsame Rückenvergoldung. Textbände mit je 2 goldgeprägten Rückenschildchen. Erste vollständige Ausgabe, der Tafelband - wie häufig - im Wiener Nachdruck. Lt. W. Hagen bildet der Nachdruck des Tafelbandes die Grundlage für alle Ausgaben ab 1842 einschließlich der Weimarer. Die Cotta-Ausgabe wurde in 750 Exx. gedruckt. Die "Farbenlehre" schließt sich an die 1791 und 92 veröffentlichten "Beiträge zur Optik" an. Der erste - "didaktische" - Teil enthält die Darstellung chromatischer Phänomene, der zweite - "polemische" - setzt sich mit Newtons Theorie auseinander, und der dritte, fragmentarisch gebliebene entwirft eine Wissenschaftsgeschichte von der "Urzeit" bis in die Zeit Goethes. Goethe selbst hat dieses Werk zu seinen wichtigsten Schriften gezählt, und die Kritik daran hat ihn tiefer ge troffen als die an seinem dichterischen Werk. Schon diese Tatsache zeigt, dass es ihm um mehr ging als um einen naturwissenschaftlichen Disput oder eine Polemik gegen Newton; im historischen Teil formuliert er vielmehr Grundpositionen seines Natur- und Wissenschaftsverständnisses. Wissenschaftliches Vorgehen umfasst alle menschlichen Vermögen (sinnliche Empfindung, Phantasie, "Ahnung", aber auch exakte Beobachtung und mathematisch - logisches Denken). Die Welt der Phänomene ist die Wahrheit selbst in ihrer sinnlich fassbaren Erscheinung, und im "Urphänomen" gelingt die Anschauung der Gesetzlichkeit des Seienden. Alle partiellen Phänomene eines auf das zugrundeliegende Urphänomen zurückzuführen, sah Goethe als seine Aufgabe auf dem Gebiet der Naturwissenschaften an. Wenn er Newton vorwirft, dass der "die Natur auf die Folter spannte, um sie zu dem Bekenntnis dessen zu nötigen, was er [der Forscher] schon vorher bei sich festgesetzt hatte", so steckt dahinter der Vorwurf einer einseitig auf Messbarkeit ausgerichteten Naturbetrachtung. Weiß und Schwarz definierte Goethe als die Bereiche von Licht und Finsternis, und Farben entstehen nach seiner Auffassung in den Zwischenbereichen (im "Trüben"). Die Grundfarben Gelb und Blau erweitern sich durch Intensivierung und Mischung, und so ordnen sich alle Farben zu einem Kreis nach ihrer inneren Zu-sammengehörigkeit, ein Symbol für die organische Harmonie zwischen Mensch und Natur. Goethes persönliche Beziehung zu seiner Farbentheorie zeigt sich auch an der Tatsache, daß er verschiedene Zimmer seinen Hauses am Frauenplan in Weimar nach den Grundsätzen der Farbenlehre streichen ließ. Textbände gleichmäßig schwach gebräunt, hin und wieder etwas fleckig, sonst sauber. Tafelband etwas stärker gebräunt, 1. Titel und Ränder leicht stockfleckig, die Tafeln sehr sauber (meist auf bläulichem Papier gedruckt). Hagen 347 und 348 b, c; vgl. Kippenberg I, 386 und 388/9, Fischer (Cotta) 764 sowie Goed. IV, 3, 583, 46) a. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Principes de philosophie zoologique, discutés en Mars 1830 au sein de l'Académie Royale des Sciences

      Pichon, Didier, Rousseau, Paris 1830 - ____ Première édition. C'est l'ouvrage le plus important de Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire. Il expose ici sa théorie de "l'unité de composition organique" qui l'opposa à Cuvier au sein de l'Académie des Sciences. "La Nature n'a formé les êtres vivants que sur un plan unique, qu'elle a varié de mille manières dans toutes ses parties accessoires." Cette théorie fait de Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire, avec Lamark, le fondateur du transformisme. C'est sans doute aussi cette idée, sous-jacente à la controverse, que combattait de manière virulente Cuvier qui l'accusa d'être un "panthéiste". Quelques rousseurs, cachet sur le titre. Bel exemplaire. ___ First edition. The most important book of Etienne Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire. "It was by comparative anatomy, teratology, and then paleontology that Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire strove to prove that species are transformed in the course of time, the simpler ones engendering the more complex. . In France, and perhaps even more in English speaking countries, Geoffroy's work is often ranked below that of Cuvier, his implacable adversary. Geoffroy's awkward, style and sometimes bizarre ideas harmed him considerably; yet Cuvier himself recognized that Geoffroy possessed a great talent for description and classification. Moreover, Geoffroy revitalized comparative anatomy in France and created scientific teratology, experimental embryology, and the concept of paleontological evolution. . He and his friend Lamarck lived too early to be completely understood." DSB 5, 358. ______ Format : In-8. Collation : (4), 226, (1) pp. Basane raciné, dos orné, tranches marbrées. (Reliure de l'époque.). [Attributes: First Edition]

        Allgemeine Uebersicht der Weltgeschichte von den aeltesten Zeiten bis auf gegenwärtige in Strömen und Flüßen dargestellt von Friedrich Strass.

      Augsburg, V. Zanna et Comp., [1830]. - Copper engraving with full original colour, in 3 unjoined sheets. (Very good condition, lovely original colour, mild toning, small nicks in blank margins and light stains in lower area). Each sheet 47 × 71 cm. A very rare edition of Friedrich Strass's large and resplendently coloured time chart depicting the inter-connecting streams of the histories of different World civilizations and nations from 3984 BC up to 1830.This large and colourful time chart employs ingenious visual methods to graphically illustrate historical events. The history of the World is presented as the interwoven streams featuring the stories of its great civilizations / nations weave their way down the time chart like the paths of streams.History is shown to commence with Genesis, which is shown here to have occurred in 3984 BC, a date close to that asserted by the Ussher Chronology. This theory as to the timing of Genesis (which was said to have occurred in 4004 BC) was devised by James Ussher (1581-1656), the Archbishop of Armagh and the Primate of All Ireland (in office between 1625-1656), and is based on his "literal reading" of the Bible. The Ussher Chronology gained widespread popularity in certain Protestant circles during the 19thCentury. The time line starts at the top of the composition with the great ancient civilizations, namely, the Italians; Greeks; Asia Minor; Assyrians; Syrians; Phoenicians; Jews; Egyptians and the Chinese. Down the various streams are plotted the names and dates of different eras and rulers. The stream on the furthest right details major world events. Part way down, the civilizations in the Western and Mediterranean world converge into the ‚Roman Empire', before splintering again into various new entities. The streams then continue to weave, combine and separate, mitigated by the interconnecting streams of major events and characters, towards the bottom of the time line, where the individual streams are represented by the nations and regions of Denmark; Sweden; Russia; the German States; Austria; Holland; Switzerland; France; the Italian States; States of the Church (Papal States); Spain; Great Britain; Greece; Persia; and China. William Bell, who issued his own version of the time chart in London in 1849, described the merits of Strass's conception to the study of history:"However natural it may be to assist the perspective faculty, in its assumption of abstract time, by the idea of a line . it is astonishing that . the image of a Stream should not have presented itself to any one . The expressions of gliding, and rolling on; or of a rapid current, applied to time, are equally familiar to us with those of long and short. Neither does it require any great discernment to trace . in the rise and fall of empire, an allusion to the source of a river, and to the increasing rapidity of a current, in proportion with the declivity of their channels towards the engulfing ocean. Nay, the metaphor . gives greater liveliness to the ideas, and impresses events more forcibly upon the mind, that the stiff regularity of the straight line. It diversified power likewise of separating the various currents into subordinate branches, or of uniting them into one vast ocean of power . tends to render the idea by its beauty more attractive, by tis simplicity more perspicuous, and by its resemblance more consistent." (Rosenberg & Grafton, pp.143 and 147). The present time chart is derived from Friedrich Strass's exceedingly rare Strom der Zeiten (‚Stream of Time') (1804). Strass's work proved to be highly influential and was widely copied in both Europe and America, and translated into several languages, including Russian. All of the large German editions are very rare, and the present example, in unjoined sheets with resplendent original colour, is an especially fine example. Cf. OCLC (Re: 1818 Zanna ed.): 165398011.

Napoléon Ier, Napoleone Buonaparte (Ajaccio auf Korsika 15. 08. 1769 - 05. 05. 1821 Longwood House auf St. Helena, Südatlantik). Kaiser von Frankreich. Franz. General und Staatsmann. Kniestück sehend im Krönungsornat von Frankreich, "Napoleon",.

      - Stahlstich v. Schuler & Metzeroth n. Gerard b. (Inst. Bibl. excud.), um 1830, 34 x 27,5 (H) - Blattgr. 60,5 x 46 cm Napoleon erwies sich als ein militärisches Talent. Vor allem die Feldzüge in Italien und in Ägypten machten ihn populär und zu einem politischen Hoffnungsträger. Dies ermöglichte ihm, durch den Staatsstreich vom 18. Brumaire die Macht in Frankreich zu übernehmen, die ihn letztendlich zum Kaiser der Franzosen werden ließ. Durch verschiedene Reformen, z. B. dem Code Civil, hat Napoleon die staatlichen Strukturen Frankreichs bis in die Gegenwart hinein geprägt. Außenpolitisch errang er zeitweise die Herrschaft über weite Teile Kontinentaleuropas. Der katastrophale Ausgang des Feldzugs gegen Russland führte zum Sturz Napoleons. Nach einer kurzen Phase der Verbannung auf Elba kehrte er für hundert Tage an die Macht zurück. In der Schlacht bei Waterloo wurde er endgültig besiegt und zuletzt bis zu seinem Lebensende auf die Insel St. Helena verbannt. - Sehr schönes großes und sauberes Blatt. - Nagler No.1.

        Rotterdam - gezicht vanaf de Maas.

      LEVE DE ROTTERDAMSCHE SCHUTTERIJ! - "Het vertrek der Veldschutterij van Rotterdam, waaronder een groot aantal vrijwilligers, in het jaar 1830"Kleurenlithografie vervaardigd door Houtman te Utrecht naar het ontwerp van Quirijn Maurits Rudolf Ver Huell, los uitgegeven in oktober 1830 door W.J. van Oosterzee te Rotterdam. Afm. ca. 58 x 84 cm. In de tijd van het ontstaan van deze prent had Rotterdam een schutterij waarin mannelijke ingezetenen tussen 18 en 50 Jaar verplicht waren dienst te doen. Het was een soort burgerwacht om de stad te beschermen bij een aanval en de orde te handhaven bij oproer of brand. Van maart tot oktober werd twee keer per maand op de Beurs geëxerceerd, eens in het jaar werd er een algemene wapenschouwing gehouden op de Boompjes. In 1830 kwam de Belgische Opstand, de Zuidelijke Nederlanden dreigen zich af te splitsen. Een golf van vaderlandsliefde ging door de Nederlanden, zowel in de Noordelijk als de Zuidelijke. Tal van schutters meldden zich aan, ook uit Rotterdam. Per (stoom)boot vertrokken ze naar Antwerpen en werden daarbij enthousiast uitgeleide gedaan. Het mag echter niet baten, België wordt uiteindelijk onafhankelijk. Ver Huell (1787- 1860) was zee-officier en later directeur van de Marinewerf te Rotterdam. Hij was actief als tekenaar en auteur van reisverhalen en biografieën. Hij was een van de oprichters van de Rotterdamse Koninklijke Jachtclub, waar later het Etnografische en het Maritiem Museum aldaar uit zijn voortgekomen. Het leeuwendeel van de werk van Ver Huell bevindt zich in het Gemeente Museum te Arnhem en het Maritiem Museum. Grote, vroege, los uitgegeven lithografieën zijn bijzonder zeldzaam. Van dit schitterende gezicht op de stad zijn slechts enkele exemplaren bewaard gebleven. Prijs: € 4.950,- (BTW margeregeling, incl. lijst).

        Shakers near Lebanon State of N York. Their Mode of Worship. Drawn from Life.

      N.p.: n.p., , nd [ca. 1830]. . Stipple line engraving, hand colored in browns and blues; image 8 3/4 x 12 3/4 inches, on a sheet 14 x 16 inches. While it bears no indication of artist, engraver, or publisher, it is the version thought by scholar Robert P. Emlen likely to be the first among some 18 versions of this scene that appeared during the 19th century. Its technique, caption, barrel-vaulted ceiling, treeless windows, and visitors' clothing match that one. There was considerable fascination with Shaker ways at the time, and this was the first published image showing a facet of Shaker life. It remained as popular as any, but, despite that, it is surprisingly scarce. See Emlen's "The Shaker Dance Prints," in Imprint, v. 17, no. 2, autumn 1992. A very good copy with wide margins, removed from board by a paper restorer, washed, and reinforced; paper slightly darkened and rubbed in the margins. (581)

        Small archive, comprising correspondence with Humboldt regarding barometric pressure on the Uranie voyage

      Paris: circa, 1830. A little browning of the bottom edge, very good condition overall.. Archive of manuscripts, including drafts, notes and various tables, most with the Archives de Laage stamp, several of the manuscripts in Freycinet's hand, other in different hands but all with evidence of Freycinet's careful attention (and most including his personal annotations); see catalogue note for detail. Louis de Freycinet's personal archive of material relating to his correspondence with Alexander von Humboldt on the question of the effect of barometric pressure on observations made during the Uranie voyage. It is evidence of the exchange of information between the eminent mariner and one of the prominent figures of nineteenth century Continental science. This group of 11 manuscripts, ranging from brief notes right through to substantial sets of tables of observations, gives an insight into the technical aspects of maritime observations with which Freycinet was obsessed throughout his life, and particularly around 1830 when he was working closely with the French Ministry of the Marine. Much of the material relates to drafts and extracts of his correspondence with Humboldt, who had settled in Berlin in 1827 after a stint in Paris when he clearly became acquainted with Freycinet. It was during this time that Humboldt began his serious work on subjects like the question of the Earth's magnetism and its effects, subjects dear to the heart of Freycinet, and which led to an interesting although now largely scattered correspondence between the two men (making these notes and drafts a particularly interesting discovery).A calendar of the manuscripts:1. 'Extrait d'une lettre de Mr. de Humboldt'. Single sheet, 285 x 205 mm., calculations. Unknown hand with Freycinet notes. On the observations of Erman (particularly as regards Kamchatka).2. 'Extrait d'une le lettre de Mr. Alexandre de Humboldt à Mr. Louis de Freycinet'. One page manuscript, 300 x 210 mm., unknown hand with Freycinet notes. Second version of previous letter.3. 'Influence de longitudes et de latitudes sue les hauteurs du baromètre'. Two page manuscript, 399 x 210 mm. Detailed listing of variations as measured on board the Uranie.4. 'Résume des observations barométriques…'. Folding table, 390 x 385 mm., calculations in Freycinet's hand, includes small tipped on "nota bene". Comparing the results of the Uranie voyage with those of Captain Beechey (presumably from the published account of Beechey, 1831).5. 'Réponse de Mr. de Freycinet à Mr. de Humboldt'. Single page manuscript, 285 x 210 mm. Sheet with 7 numbered sets of measurements, relating to the previous table.6. 'Corrections des hauteurs des baromètres de l'Uranie…'. Single page manuscript, 300 x 210 mm. Technical notes on comparisons of the "Fortin" barometer with another on board, including one observation made in Port Jackson.7. 'Questions adressées par Mr. de Humboldt à Mr. de Freycinet' and 'Réponse'. Four page manuscript, 290 x 210 mm. Including extract of Humboldt's letter (24 February 1827) and draft of Freycinet's response (28 February 1827), the latter with Freycinet's personal corrections. Highly detailed questions relating to the Uranie.8. 'Lettre adressée par Mr. de Humboldt… la temperature de la mer'. Two page manuscript, 300 x 210 mm. Includes a partial secretarial draft of Freycinet's reply, firmly crossed through.9. 'Réponse à la lettre précédente…'. Two page manuscript, 300 x 210 mm. Freycinet's draft secretarial reply to the previous.10. 'Par les obsons. partielle'. Two pages pinned together, 290 x 210 mm., some water damage. With notes in Freycinet's hand, and calculations relating to the Uranie voyage: includes observations at Good Hope, in the Sea of Japan, and near Norfolk Island.11. 'Comparaisons de la temperature de la Mer…'. 12 pp. booklet with 6 pp. of manuscript tables, detailed measurements throughout, some corrections chiefly to main initial notes. A series of detailed tables measuring the temperature of the sea throughout the Uranie voyage, and particularly noting unusual variations. One series of observations, for example, was made in the vicinity of Hawaii, another series in the Indian Ocean "entre le Cap. De B.S. et la N. Hollande…".

      3, Jewin Street, City of London: L. Tallis. S., 1111. [Undated] - See Comments: Dark Green Blind Stamped Brds. - Further information: by Thomas Dugdale, antiquarian, assisted by William Burnett, civil engineer. General Note: Plates show places of interest. An excellent set of this work. Historical, Entertaining & Commercial Alphabetically arranged by Thomas Dugdale. Eleven Volumes; with a full set of especially commissioned Archer maps, 300 Etchings of towns, buildings, monuments, people, views. Dugdale's England and Wales delineated. Publication Date: [1830?-] . Illustration: Frontispiece to each volume. Example entry for ABBOTS BROMLEY. The hobby-horse dance, an ancient custom, was observed here till the civil war.--Ten or twelve of the dancers carried, on their shoulders, deers' heads, painted with the arms of Paget, Bagot, and Welles, to whom the chief property of the town belonged. The horns yet hang up in the church, but the custom is now discontinued. The parish includes Bromley, Bagot's liberty, and Bromley Hurst township. Bagot's park is the deer-park of Lord Bagot, whose seat is at Blithefield. Market, Tuesday-Fairs, Tuesday before Mid-lent Sunday, May 22, September 4, for horses and horned cattle." This set has the advantage of having been professionally resewn, recased using their original boards and they also have new endpapers.This ensures that they are not only preserved but that they now present extremely well. The publication is notorious for breaking and cracking, but I felt that such an interesting and rather uncommon complete set merited a little expenditure. Pages are clean, but there is evidence of sporadic foxing, occasional marks, but this is very good set indeed. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall [ Location: g5 ]. Hardcover. Very Good. 8vo.

        Album romantique, vers 1830.

      - In-8 oblong (146*225mm), 110p environ. Album mosaïqué romantique comme cela s'est beaucoup fait à l'époque, donnant parfois lieu à de superbes albums amicorum. Ici, l'album est offert le 12 avril 1833 par une certaine A. Garin à une compagne, comme l'indique le petit billet fleurit épinglé sur la première page. Seules sept pages sont écrites, reprenants des poèmes et citations sur l'Amitié, reprenant notamment le couplet sur l'Amitié de Desmaris (L'Honnête Homme, act. II, sc.II) et la fable de La Fontaine, les deux Pigeons. Une autre page à la suite comporte un dessin assez naïf. Reliure plein maroquin havane, importante plaque mosaïquée rouge, vert, vert olive et aubergine, tranches dorées. Papier du cahier central légèrement décalé et de couleur différente (mélange de papiers marrons et bleus). Petits frottis aux coins, mors légèrement craquelés, une page découpée. Reliure non signée est de Germain-Simier. La plaque ayant servi pour la reliure est la même que l'on retrouve sur le Racine ayant appartenu à Descamps-Scrive, dans une reliure signée de Descamps-Scrive (2e vente, n°98, reproduit en page 75 du catalogue).
