        A treatise on the law of libel and the liberty of the press; showing the origin, use, and abuse of the law of libel: with copious notes and references to authorities in Great Britain and the United States: as applicable to individuals and to political and ecclesiastical bodies and principles.

      New-York: printed by G.F. Hopkins & Son 1830 - 8vo., xxxviii + (39)-184pp.,with a single page Catalogue of Liberal Books for Sale by G.W. & A.J. Matsell> of New York bound in, well bound in strong mid-20th century cloth, spine lettered in gilt. A very good copy of an influential book. First, and only, edition. McCoy C.558. Sabin 16619. A powerful argument favouring 'untrammelled discussion, in its utmost latitude'. 'The liberty of the press is a phrase in every body's mouth. It forms one of the common-place panegyrics of what are called free governments. It is one of the boasts of those who admire that nonentity the British constitution. It is supposed to flourish particularly in these United States, and to form a distinguishing feature of our American governments. I hardly know in which of them to look for it.' [p.39]. Thomas Cooper (1759-1839), 'president of Columbia College, in South Carolina, had 30 years earlier been the defendant in a sedition trial. His doctrines on a free press, he writes, grew out of the earlier statements of Milton (Areopagitica>, 1644), Anthony Collins (1724), his own earlier tract (1787), Robert Hall (1821), Samuel Bailey (1821), and Thomas Herttell (1828). His legal researches led him to protest against the common law doctrine of libel and blasphemy. Appendix I deals with heresy and blasphemy.

        Stammbuch-Kassette mit ca. 70 Einlegeblättern, davon mehrere farbig illustriert.

      Meist München und Nürnberg, 1823-, 1830. - circa 17 x 10,8 cm. etwa 70 Blätter, davon 12 mit Aquarellen oder kolorierten Kupferstichen in Buntpapierhülle und diese in dunkelgrüner Lederkassette, die als Buchimitat gearbeitet ist "Sehr schön ausgestattetes Album amicorum in hübscher Buchkassette. Stammbuchhalter war ein Mitglied der Familie Nützelberger (ansässig im Mittelfränkischen). Das geht aus dem Eintrag von ?S. Memmert? vom 4. September 1827 hervor, der ihn ?Lieber Nuzelberger? anspricht. S(ebastian?) Memmert war vermutlich ein Verwandter des Uhrmachers Memmert in Ansbach. Eventuell stammte Nützelberger aus Fürth, denn mehrere der Einträger sind in Fürth gebürtig, so die Künstler Entres und Mezler. Die Beiträger stammen aus dem familiären und studentischen Umkreis. Genannt seien: mit einem undatierten Eintrag: Cajetan Hübschmann (1809-1832), Inhaber der Buchdruckerei Hübschmann in München - mit Eintrag vom 9. März 182: Johann Jacob Mezler (1804-1839), Maler und Zeichenlehrer. Dieser verbrachte seine Kindheit in Fürth wo sein Vater, Johann Peter Metzler, Bäckermeister war. Sein Zeichentalent wurde früh entdeckt Im Jahr 1823 ging er nach München (eventuell gemeinsam mit dem Stammbuchhalter) und studierte an der Akademie der Bildenden Künste bei Professor Johann Peter von Langer Malerei - mit Eintrag vom 10. September 1827: Franz Amerseder aus Hengersberg. Wohl ein Verwandter des Kaufmannes Georg Amerseder, dessen Anwesen am 4. November 1823 versteigert wurde (so in der Münchner ?Allgemeinen Zeitung? berichtet) - mit Eintrag vom 9. März 1823: der Bildhauer Joseph Otto Entres (1804-1870). Entres kam bereits mit 16 Jahren nach München an die Kunstakademie und wurde dort Schüler von Konrad Eberhard. Gerade in seinem mittelalterlichen Stil wurde Entres sehr durch Eberhard beeinflusst, was man an seiner Madonnenstatue für den Münchner Dom studieren kann - mit Eintrag vom 11. September 1827: Vincenz Haertel, laut dem ?Kunst- und Gewerbeblatt des Polytechnischen Vereins von 1835 ?Handlungs-Buchhalter? in München. Eine sehr hübsch aquarellierte Beilage ist signiert mit ?Markus Eberl?, eventuell handelt es sich um den Münchner Bierbrauer, der laut ?Bayerischem Volksfreund? 1827 heiratete. Unter den anderen Beilagen besonders hervorzuheben ein Blatt ?Erinnerungen an das Jahr 1825? mit 4 Darstellungen eines Ausfluges nach Schloss Nymphenburg und die blattgrosse Darstellung der Kirche in Oberföhring.

        Kokon kaji biko [trans.: Sword Smithing: Old & Modern]

      Many illus. in the text. Seven vols. 8vo, orig. patterned pale blue wrappers (rubbed), orig. block-printed title labels on upper covers, new stitching. [Japan: ca. 1830]. First edition. The Yamada family of sword testers was famous; for many generations they made a living as executioners and kept detailed records of each sword's performance. Bodies were mounted on a cutting stand and specific cuts were made. One of their toughest tests was to cut centrally through the thorax, the so-called chiwari ("breast splitter"), as it had to go through several ribs. The sword was judged on how many bodies were severed with each type of cut. Following the index in the first volume of the present work, there are three introductory essays: 1) Yamada on the metallurgical processes for making steel for swords; 2) Masahide Kawabe on the manufacturing of swords; and 3) Natae Kamata on the testing of swords. This final essay contains several illustrations of the "testing grounds" for the sharpness of swords: chopping blocks and mounts to secure bodies. The remaining portion of the first volume is devoted to histories of the leading sword smithing families of Japan. Vols. II-IV contain an invaluable dictionary of sword smithing families, alphabetically arranged. The final three volumes contain depictions of hundreds of sword blades, arranged by manufacturer and region. Each manufacturer's seal is illustrated. Fine condition.

        Recherches anatomico-pathologiques sur l'encéphale et ses dépendances

      Paris, chez Béchet jeune, 1830-1834, in-8, , , Nouvelle édition, augmentée, en trois volumes ; les précédentes éditions ont paru en 2 volumes. Le volume 3 est à la date de 1834. Lallemand, (1790-1853, chirurgien et professeur à la faculté de Montpellier), fit paraitre, sous forme épistolaire, entre 1820 et 1834, une série d'observations cliniques et de compte-rendus pathologiques à propos de la nature des maladies infectueuses de l'encéphale. Rejetant les imprécisions de la phrénologie et la relativité de la vivisection, il décide d'observer, dans un premier temps, les comportements externes et internes des personnes malades du sytème nerveux, puis de s'attacher aux désordes anatomico-pathologiques dont ils sont les témoins afin de dresser des constats plus justes sur les maladies de l'encéphale. En cela, il redonne un élan nouveau à la physiologie puisqu'en classant les affections cérébrales d'aprés les altérations pathologiques et non seulement d'après les symptômes ou "les phénomènes extérieurs", il est à l'origine d'une méthode sûre et fiable basée sur l'observation systématique, répétée et particulière.

        LETTERS AND JOURNALS OF LORD BYRON: WITH NOTICES OF HIS LIFE

      London: John Murray, 1830. FIRST EDITION y. This is the first edition of Moore's sympathetic biography of Byron, along with a collection of the Romantic rebel's evocative letters and journals, offered here in extremely fine contemporary condition. The lives of Byron and the Irishman Moore (1779-1852) were closely linked. The two were intimate friends, and Moore served as Byron's literary executor. Moore achieved in his day a popularity among the London literati second only to Byron, and the latter contributed to Moore's success in both direct and indirect ways. For example, the extraordinary popularity of the Oriental romance "Lalla Rookh," Moore's most famous work, was due in large measure to a raging vogue that had been established by Byron's exotic narratives. After Byron's untimely death, Moore edited--with due care--such excerpts of his friend's letters and journals as would not unduly shock or embarrass the living. Day admires "the vigor and movement in Byron's letters, a compelling rhythmic prose that sweeps and punches. The man becomes blazingly alive in these incisive and driving letters. . . . The robust honesty and vitality . . . make him more attractive and human than does any of his flamboyant verse." Moore's "Notices" of the poet's life was written after it was decided that the memoir Byron had entrusted to Moore for publication after his death was too scandalous to see print (and Moore, with permission, burned it). DNB admires "the skill with which Moore constructed his portrait" and proclaims his biography "indispensable for students of Byron."

        Organisation, Systematik und geographisches Verhältniss der Infusionsthierchen. Zwei Vorträge, in der Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Berlin gehalten in den Jahren 1828 und 1830.

      1830 - Berlin: Druckerei der Kà niglichen Akademie der Wissenschaften for F. Dümmler, 1830. Folio in 4s (363 x 260mm). 20th-century full brown buckram by Fowler Wilson for the Royal Institution, lettered in gilt on the spine and with the Institution's crest in gilt at the foot; pp. [2 (title, verso blank)], 108; 8 hand-coloured copper-engraved plates by Schmidt, Wiencker, M. Haas, E. Weber, and C. Haas after Ehrenberg, letterpress tables in the text; occasional light spotting or marking, light offsetting from last text l. onto first plate, final plate slightly browned, otherwise a very good and crisp copy; provenance: The Royal Institution (inkstamps on versos of title and final plate, and front endpapers, crest on spine). First and only edition. An important and early publication on the (now-obsolete) class infusoria by Ehrenberg (1795-1876), one of the leading experts on the subject: 'With the microscope he discovered single-celled fossils that built up geological strata; he gave exact descriptions of and discriminated among the shells and skeletons of freshwater and marine animals, thereby becoming the founder of microgeology and micropaleontology in Germany' (DSB IV, p. 291). The work is illustrated by eight finely-engraved and -coloured plates, and is composed of two papers based on the author's expeditions: the first, read to the Akademie der Wissenschaften on 10 January 1828, is 'Die geographische Verbreitung der Infusionsthierchen in Nord-Afrika und West-Asien, beobachtet auf Hemprich und Ehrenbergs Reisen', and is based on the findings of Ehrenberg's travels through north Africa and Arabia in 1820-1825, during which he accumulated a vast collection which included some 34,000 zoological and 46,000 botanical specimens. The second, read to the Akademie der Wissenschaften on 4 and 18 March 1830, is 'Beiträge zur Kenntniss der Organisation der Infusorien und ihrer geographischen Verbreitung, besonders in Sibirien', which draws upon Ehrenberg's findings during his travels through Russia, which were patronised by Alexander von Humboldt and financed by Czar Nicholas I.

Reliure en demi chagrin rouge à coins, dos à quatre faux nerfs orné de caissons et filets estampés à froid, chiffre enlacé de Jules Hetzel en pied, exemplaire non rogné, reliure de l'époque. Quelques rares rousseurs. Précieux envoi autographe signé d'Honoré de Balzac Jules Hetzel : ". en témoignage de l'amitié de l'auteur" Remarquable exemplaire, portant un précieux envoi autographe, dans une charmante reliure du temps. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] First definitive, partly first editions. Half-hearted binder with corners, back with four false nerves adorned with caissons and nets stamped with cold, figure enlacromantiques of the time. Some small foxinges. Precious signed autograph dedication of the author of Honoré de Balzac: "to Mr. Leroy as a testimony of the author's acknowledgment. April 1831. De Balzac ". Exceptional political autograph dedication of the author to Henry Leroy, dedicatee of the ultimate Letter on Paris published in The Thief and witness, in the aftermath of the Three Glorious ones, Balzac's electoral wishes that will profoundly influence his writings. Beyond the political gesture, the gift of these scenes of private life to satisfy its public ambitions, from the beginning of its commitment, inscribed the pre-eminence of the literary project on the political action of the author of La Comédie Humaine . Although he regards the July monarchy as a betrayal, it offers Balzac the opportunity to realize an old dream of political action. Already in 1819 he wrote to his sister: "If I am a fellow . I can have something more than literary glory, it is beautiful to be a great man and a great citizen. The modification of the conditions of eligibility offers the demiurge the opportunity to participate in the writing of the great history. Balzac, "following in the footsteps of his model, Chateaubriand, wants to combine the functions of thinker and actor in politics" (see P. Baldwin in Balzac and politics ). The maturation of this ambition takes place through the Lettres sur Paris , 19 articles published in Le Voleur between September 1830 and March 1831, and concluding on the famous Investigation on the policy of the two ministries. Never signed, these articles constitute the most important political reflection of Balzac and have given rise, as such, many studies and comments. Each of the Letters is symbolically addressed to a recipient designated only by its initial and its city. Although they were long regarded as fictitious, most of them are now identified, particularly among the author's relatives and influential politicians. Thus, it is following the Letter XVI of February 26, 1831 that is addressed to him, that his friend Samuel Henry Berthoud suggests to Balzac to present itself in his municipality. Enthused by this project, Balzac officially announces his candidacy in the Letter of March 15 and then, on the advice of Berthoud, addresses Letter XIX of March 29 to Mr. L *** in Cambrai, asteronym behind which must be recognized the " Lawyer Henry Leroy, whose Balzac hopes to obtain decisive Cambrian support. The main political hopes of Balzac were to Cambrai, of which he tried to seduce the elites, while Berthoud, editor of the Gazette de Cambrai, promoted and popularized with the people: "M. de Balzac, Is not only a famous writer, he is even more maybe a profound publicist. In support of this assertion, we must quote only the Lettres sur Paris published in Le voleur , in which we note a judgment so sure, a precision so lucid. Moreover, M. de Balzac is occupied with a publication of popular policy, which ought to contribute greatly to the spreading of education among the poor classes, and better still, to sound ideas. " In doing so, the journalist wrote to his friend and champion: "Hasten [.] to come to Cambrai.

        The Book of Mormon: An Account Written by the Hand of Mormon, upon Plates Taken from the Plates of Nephi.

      E. B. Grandin, Palmyra, New York 1830 - 588pp. Duodecimo [19 cm] in original full brown sheep, with gilt-ruled spine and gilt-stamped black leather spine label, all edges speckled blue. Extremities rubbed; shallow creasing to spine; evidence of discreet professional repair to front joint. Hinges cracked, but holding; contemporary bookplate on front pastedown, along with a clipping of Joseph Smith's image; contemporary ink name on front free endpaper, dated 1834; front free endpaper almost completely disbound; small portion of rear free endpaper has become affixed to rear pastedown and torn free; foxing throughout, as usual for this edition, else text is unmarked. Housed in custom clamshell case of brown leather with black leather spine label. A very attractive example of this important book. The first edition of the Book of Mormon was printed in an edition of five thousand copies by Egbert B. Grandin in upstate New York. Printing took place between August 1829 and March 1830.The type was set based largely on the so-called "Printer's Manuscript," a transcription made by Oliver Cowdery from Joseph Smith's original manuscript. This transcription, like the original, was almost wholly lacking in punctuation, and was not broken into paragraphs; typesetter John H. Gilbert would remedy these issues as he set the type. The edition includes many variant copies with errors in pagination and spelling. Some of these are due to errors in the Printer's Manuscript, some to errors in typesetting. "[E]rrors were caught and corrected," says Peter Crawley, "but the sheets with the errors were not discarded; then books were assembled from signatures in several stages of correction, producing a large number of variant copies." A highly sought-after book, prized by historical, religious and Mormon book collectors alike. Crawley I 1. Flake/Draper 595. Bibliothica Scallawagiana 230. Howes S 631. Mormon 50: 1. Auerbach 1168.

        Animals in Motion... An Electro-Photographie Investigation of Consecutive Phases of Animal Progressive Movements. Commenced 1872. Completed 1885.

      Quer-2. 4 n.n. + 264 S. OLwd. 2. Aufl. In engl Sprache. Mit der faksimilierten Widmung am Frontispiz. - Ebd. leicht berieben, Buchblock leicht gelockert, leichte Gbrsp. - Muybridge (1830-1904), wanderte in die USA aus und wurde dort zu einem der bekanntesten Fotografen des 19. Jahrhunderts. Seine verträumten Landschaftsbilder aus dem Yosemite Valley verkauften sich millionenfach, seine Dia-Vorträge wurden in Europa begeistert gefeiert - ein früher Starfotograf, der selbst die dunklen Seiten des Celebrity-Daseins idealtypisch vorweg nahm: 1874 erschoss er den Liebhaber seiner Frau, wurde in einem spektakulären Prozess dann aber freigesprochen. Die Jury zeigte Verständnis für den Rachedurst des gehörnten Ehemannes. Zudem kam der Mann mit dem wild wuchernden Bart bei seinen Experimenten dem Geheimnis des Bewegtbildes auf die Spur - und schrieb so Geschichte: Muybridges Bewegungsstudien von Rennpferden bildeten den Grundstein für das Kino, zwanzig Jahre vor den Brüdern Lumière. Nicht nur hatte er Wissenschaft und Technik einen entscheidenden Schritt vorangebracht. Seine Bewegungsstudien von Tieren und Menschen wurden auch zu einer Inspirationsquelle für Generationen von Künstlern. (Zitat nach Carsten Volkery). - Beiliegend die wissenschaftliche Grundlage für seine Fotografie: Étienne-Jules MAREY, La Locomotion Animale. Extrait du Traite de Physique Biologique, Tome 1er. (Paris, Masson et Cie., 1877). Mit einer eighd. Widm. von Marey. - Marey, (1830 -1904), studierte zunächst an der Ecole polytechnique in Beaume und seit 1850 in Paris Medizin. Er spezialisierte sich auf Physiologie und Pathophysiologie des Kreislaufsystems. Nach einem kurzen Aufenthalt bei Carl Ludwig in Wien, kehrte er 1860 nach Paris zurück. Er war ein Pionier auf den Gebieten der Blutmessung, graphischen Aufzeichnungstechnik, wissenschaftlicher Photographie, Luftfahrt und Kinematographie. Ab 1870 erweiterte er sein Interesse auf technische Erfindungen zum Studium biologischer Bewegungsphänomene, die ebenfalls in dem vorliegenden Sonderdruck abgebildet sind.

        Records of Captain Clapperton's Last Expedition to Africa: by Richard Lander, his Faithful Attendant, and the Only Surviving Member of the Expedition: With the Subsequent Adventures of the Author.

      1830 - London: J.B. Nichols and Son for Henry Colburn and Richard Bentley, 1830. Small 8vo, (190 x 112mm), 2 volumes bound in one. Contemporary half calf gilt over marbled boards, rebacked to style, the modern spine gilt in compartments, gilt leather lettering-piece in one, others decorated with central gilt tools and with date in gilt at the foot, mid-grey endpapers, red-speckled edges; pp. I: [iii]-xxiii, [1 (illustrations and errata)], 310; II: vi, 293, [1 (blank)]; engraved portrait frontispiece by T.A. Dean after W. Bagg and wood-engraved illustrations in the text; a little rubbed and scuffed, light offsetting from portrait onto vol. I title, occasional light spotting or marking, bound without half-titles and final advertisement l. I, O12 and final [?blank or advertisement] l. II, O4, otherwise a very good set; provenance: Frederick William Halfpenny (bookplate on upper pastedown). First edition. British interest in West Africa -- and specifically Timbuktu and the river Niger -- resulted in several expeditions to the region. In 1822 Hugh Clapperton (1788-1827) joined Dixon Denham and Walter Oudney in an attempt to explore the Niger with a view to commercial possibilities, and Clapperton's success in reaching Kano and Sokoto in modern Nigeria led to a second expedition in 1825, during which he was accompanied by Richard Lander as his attendant and three other Europeans. The expedition disembarked at Badagri on the Nigerian coast and travelled inland, but only Clapperton and Lander survived the journey to Sokoto, where Sultan Belloo forbade them to proceed to the Niger; Clapperton, who had previously contracted dysentery, died before any further progress could be made. Lander returned to the coast, and thence to England with the expedition journals, which he published as Journal of a Second Expedition into the Interior of Africa, from the Bight of Benin to Soccatoo (London: 1829). The following year Lander published the present work, which offers a more personal view of the expedition, and includes details of his own life and of his experiences on the return from Sokoto to Badagri. As he states at the end of his introduction, the Government funded a second expedition by Lander and his brother to trace the route of the Niger, and Lander left in January 1830, and successfully traced the river's course. On their return to Britain in 1831 the brothers -- and particularly Richard -- were feted, and Richard was awarded the Royal Geographical Society's first Gold Medal; 'His discovery that the Niger flowed into the Atlantic was hailed by contemporaries as an event of cardinal importance since it opened up the whole of central Africa to commerce and ultimately to settlement' (ODNB).

Hinges cracked, but holding; contemporary bookplate on front pastedown, along with a clipping of Joseph Smith's image; contemporary ink name on front free endpaper, dated 1834; front free endpaper almost completely disbound; small portion of rear free endpaper has become affixed to rear pastedown and torn free; foxing throughout, as usual for this edition, else text is unmarked. Housed in custom clamshell case of brown leather with black leather spine label. A very attractive example of this important book. The first edition of the Book of Mormon was printed in an edition of five thousand copies by Egbert B. Grandin in upstate New York. Printing took place between August 1829 and March 1830. The type was set based largely on the so-called "Printer's Manuscript," a transcription made by Oliver Cowdery from Joseph Smith's original manuscript. This transcription, like the original, was almost wholly lacking in punctuation, and was not broken into paragraphs; typesetter John H. Gilbert would remedy these issues as he set the type. The edition includes many variant copies with errors in pagination and spelling. Some of these are due to errors in the Printer's Manuscript, some to errors in typesetting. "[E]rrors were caught and corrected," says Peter Crawley, "but the sheets with the errors were not discarded; then books were assembled from signatures in several stages of correction, producing a large number of variant copies." A highly sought-after book, prized by historical, religious and Mormon book collectors alike. Crawley I 1. Flake/Draper 595. Bibliothica Scallawagiana 230. Howes S 631. Mormon 50: 1. Auerbach 1168. Sabin 83088.
