Seit 1847 war Verdi mit der Sängerin Giuseppina Strepponi liiiert, was in Busseto erheblichen Widerstand und eine zweitweise Entfremdung von den Barezzis auslöste. So schnitt Verdi eine Zeit lang seinen hier erwähnten Schwager Giovanni Barezzi, "weil der sich in der Öffentli … [Click Below for Full Description]

Staples, Estevan M.L.: [Staples, Stephen McLellan]
[New York, 1831. [2]pp. on a folded folio sheet of yellow paper. Text in Spanish. Quarto. Old folds, minor toning. Near fine. A rare prospectus and early subscriber's order form for an unpublished map of Mexico, proposed in 1831 by Stephen McLellan Staples, the surveyor general for the Mexican state of Chihuahua, and author of LA GRAMATICA COMPLETA DE LA LENGUA INGLESA EN CASTELLANO. Staples' map, which would have been a valuable firsthand addition to the cartography of the early Mexican Republic, was never published - he died less than a year after producing this prospectus. Staples' map was to include a view of the cathedral and a plan of Mexico City, including the names of streets, plus a separate plan of the interior of the National Palace of Mexico, as well as a view of the building. Staples includes proposed details for the various aspects of the map in the text on the first page, and top of the second page. This is followed by the conditions of subscription; one could buy both the map and plan for $15, or each of them separately ($12 for the map or $5 for the plan). Staples signs in print after the subscription options, dating them May 25, 1831 in New York. The second page concludes with a partially-printed form for subscribers to write their name, address, and number of copies, which is blank in this example. Stephen McLellan Staples was born in Gorham, Maine in 1800. He was educated at Bowdoin College in 1821, and moved to Philadelphia to open an academy where he taught English and Classics. In 1825, he published an English grammar designed for Spanish speakers, th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cox, Ross
Henry Colburn & Richard Bentley, London, 1831. Two volumes. [iii]-xxiv,368; [iii]-viii,400pp. Lacks half titles. 20th-century three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spine richly gilt with raised bands and black and burgundy morocco labels. Small ink stamp at bottom of both titlepages. Light shelf wear. Occasional foxing and tanning. Very good. First edition of one of the two most important sources of information about Oregon in the early period. This work, along with Alexander Ross' ADVENTURES OF THE FIRST SETTLERS ON THE OREGON OR COLUMBIA RIVER (London, 1849), are generally considered to be the prime printed sources of information on the exploration and settlement of Oregon. Cox left Hawaii and arrived in Oregon with the Astoria party in 1812, later working for the North West Company. In 1817 he went overland to Montreal. "Cox's narrative gives an excellent firsthand account of the fur trade and of the Indian tribes in Montana, Idaho, and eastern Washington with whom the fur traders dealt and sometimes fought. While Cox was making this journey the tension between Hudson's Bay and Northwest Companies had become very acute and he gives a good account of their rivalry" - Streeter. WAGNER-CAMP 43:1.

1831. L'Enfer [The Inferno] [Hell] [The Divine Comedy] by Dante Alighieri | Joseph Antoine-de Gourbillon (Traduit en vers par stances correspondantes aux tercets textuels sur un texte nouveau) Auguste Auffray, Paris. 1831. First Edition. Octavo (8vo). xv. 376pp. Bound in quarter calf of the period over marbled boards. Gold gilt titling and decoration of the spine. Marbled endpapers. "No one can have put more effort into his translation than Joseph Antoine de Gourbillon, who claims to have spent eleven or twelve years working on it before realizing that he had adopted the wrong approach and beginning again, in an ambitious effort to collate all previous editions into a new and authoritative text as a basis for his translation. He devised new and improved systems of punctuation and spelling, as well as a system of prosodic and metrical signs to aid reading of the Italian text. Unfortunately, public reaction to the prospectus issued for this work in 1825 cannot have been favourable, for nothing came of it until the translation alone, stripped of all its accompanying material, appeared finally in 1831."

Complete with leaf of publisher's ads at end of vol. 1 and subscriber's list at end of vol. 2. Contemporary half calf, sprinkled paper boards, spines divided by gilt rolls, lettered direct in two compartments and with central gilt tools in others, edges sprinkled blue. Some light spotting, subscriber's list (with larger text area) folded at bottom to avoid overhang. Extremities scuffed and a touch worn, vol. 2 neatly rebacked and hinges relined preserving most of original backstrip. The first printing in the UK of Noah Webster's pioneering dictionary, slightly modified by the English editor but retaining Webster's spelling changes and other Americanisms. Printed in an edition of 3,000 copies (with 912 subscribed for, according to the subscriber's list in this copy), it sold relatively well in the UK - to the embarassment of English lexicographers - because it was the first major dictionary not based on Johnson's work from the previous century. This example is an early issue with the title-page in vol. 1 dated 1831, and is complete with the rarely-found publisher's advertisements and subscriber's list.

The Declaration of Independence by the Citizens of Mecklenburg County, on the Twentieth Day of May, 1775, with Accompanying Documents, and the Proceedings of the Cumberland Association. Raleigh, Lawrence & Lemay, Printers, 1831. vii, [9]-32 pp. Softcover in original wraps. First edition, foxed, wraps expertly backed and repaired where chipped. Period inscription on top of front cover (see pic). Howes M472 "aa" rating. In 1819, a document called the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence was published, with the claim that it had been written on May 20, 1775 -- more than a year before the U.S. Declaration of Independence was signed. But no written earlier reference to that document has ever been found. Some historians believe the Mecklenburg Declaration is an inaccurate rendering of an authentic document known as the Mecklenburg Resolves (a set of resolutions passed on May 31, 1775, that fell short of an actual declaration of independence). Although published in newspapers in 1775, the text of the Mecklenburg Resolves was lost after the American Revolution and not rediscovered until 1838. Some historians believe the Mecklenburg Declaration was written in 1800 in an attempt to recreate the Mecklenburg Resolves from memory According to this theory, the author of the Mecklenburg Declaration mistakenly believed that the Resolves has been a declaration of independence, so he recreated the Resolves with language borrowed from the United States Declaration of Independence.

[BONFILS, Félix].
A rare and unusually massive Palestine souvenir album containing 71 photographs by the renowned studio of Félix Bonfils (1831-85), the French-born photographer who had come to the Levant with General d'Hautpoul in 1860 and remained active in the East. Based in Beirut, Bonfils produced thousands of photographs depicting Palestine, Egypt, Syria, Greece and other parts of the Ottoman Empire. In the early days of western tourism to the Middle East, his works soon became popular as souvenirs. The photographs were available both separately and as individually arranged albums, but sets of this scope were uncommon,very few exceeding fifty images. The sumptuous binding which the owner chose underlines that this was a luxury souvenir for a more than ordinarily wealthy traveller. It features landscapes and city views, famous sights such as Jaffa Gate (Bab el-Khalil), sites sacred to the three religions (Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Church of the Flagellation, Al-Aqsa Mosque, Mosque of Omar, Wailing Wall), but also sights outside Jerusalem, including Hebron, Bethlehem, the Dead Sea, the River Jordan, Jericho, Wadi el-Kelt, Khan-el-Ahmar, Bethany, Nazareth, and Emmaus. The photographs occasionally show some insignificant loss of contrast, but are altogether in good condition. A few edge flaws to the cardboard leaves, including a chafe mark across the lower edge where the paper has buckled. Binding in good condition, with occasional scuffing (more obvious on lower cover). A fine album of photographs of Palestine.

COLAÇO, José Daniel.
VI, 122, [1 blank], [2], [1 blank] pp.First separately published and expanded edition of an account of the former King of Portugal, Dom Ferdinand II's visit to Morocco, written by the Portuguese/Moroccan diplomat José Daniel Colaço (1831-1907). In the introduction Colaço states that a printing press had just been set up in Tangiers and that this is its first product. Colaço was born in a family of Portuguese diplomatic agents, active in Morocco since the mid-18th century, and was appointed Deputy Consul of Portugal in Tangiers in 1856, the year of the present journey. He accompanied Dom Ferdinand just after the end of his reign. The account itself was first published in the Archivo Universal in 1856, but is here expanded with an account of the presentation of the Order of the Tower and Sword (a Portuguese order of knighthood) to Sultan Muhammad IV of Morocco, and an account of presentation of the same Order to his successor Hassan I.A very good copy.l For the author: Dicionário de orientalistas de língua Portuguesa (online).

After 12 vols it was superseded by Magikon - Archives for Observations concerning the Realms of the Spirit World of Magnetic Life, which ceased publication in 1853. Kerner's interest in the supernatural and animal magnetism derived from his (initially) medical treatment of Frederica Hauffe - the Seeress of Prevost and a whole school of philosopy was built on her revelations during trance to Kerner. Kerner's exploration of the psychic and mystical spheres were believed to have significantly influenced inter alia Kant, Baader and Jung who regarded Kerner as a forerunner of clinical psychology' (Glen Friesen).

Buchblock vom Deckel gelöst, Einband sehr leicht berieben, gutes Exemplar Stammhammer I, 219, 4; nicht bei Barbier! Programmschrift der Saint-Simonisten! Von größter Seltenheit! Der frühsozialistische Saint-Simonismus war eine Denkschule und Vereinigung, die nach dem Tode Saint Simons (1825) dessen Lehre nicht nur zu systematisieren und zu verbreiten suchte, sondern auch mit erheblichen Veränderungen fortentwickelte. Henri de Saint-Simon (eigentlich Claude-Henri de Rouvroy, Comte de [Graf von] Saint-Simon; * 17. Oktober 1760 in Paris; † 19. Mai 1825 in Paris) war ein bedeutender französischer soziologischer und philosophischer Autor zur Zeit der Restauration. Mit 17 schloss er sich der Freiwilligentruppe an, mit der der Marquis de Lafayette nach Amerika ging, um im Unabhängigkeitskrieg gegen England auf Seiten der Aufständischen zu kämpfen, die auch materiell heimlich von Frankreich unterstützt wurden. 1789 sympathisierte er, wie viele liberale Adelige, zunächst mit der Revolution und legte sich den bürgerlichen Namen Claude Bonhomme zu. 1794 aber, während der Terrorherrschaft, entkam er nur knapp der Guillotine. Achtzehn Jahre nach der Veröffentlichung der wegweisenden Broschüre von Saint-Simon und Thierry skizzierte der 24-jährige Michel Chevalier, der Chefredakteur der 1831 von den Saint-Simonisten erworbenen Zeitung Le Globe geworden war, die Umrisse eines „Mittelmeersystems" als Vorstufe zu eine … [Click Below for Full Description]

The repressed essays were subsequently translated into Spanish and published in Madrid, Maclure having travelled to Spain in the hopes of founding an agricultural school "for the common people, in which labor should be combined with instruction" (DAB 12, p. 136). Maclure purchased 10,000 acres of land outside Alicante, but had to relinquish these after the overthrown of Cortes when the land was restored to the Church. From Spain Maclure travelled to Robert Owen's community of New Lanark in Scotland, which in turn inspired him to travel overseas to the Owenite community of New Harmony, where his early articles appeared in the Gazette; the remaining essays were publishing in the "Disseminator of Useful Knowledge" and the "Disseminator," both issued in New Harmony.

A very rare collection intended for framing, hence the wide margins and lightly sewn wrappers. 'Charles Joseph Hullmandel (1789-1850) (1789–1850). After travelling on the continent, and making many sketches and studies, he turned his attention to lithography, and in 1818 published at Somers Town 'Twenty-four Views of Italy,' drawn and lithographed by himself. Lithography, invented in Germany in 1796, was then little employed or understood in England. In order to learn the processes employed by Engelmann, then or afterwards a partner in the Paris firm of Engelmann, Coindet, & Co., Hullmandel entered in 1821 into an arrangement with him which proved unsatisfactory, and terminated in 1826. In the meantime he published a translation of Raucourt's 'Manual of Lithography,' and in 1824 prepared his 'Art of Drawing on Stone, giving a full explanation of the various styles, &c.' His practice and study resulted in the discovery of a new mode of preparing the stones, and in 1827 he issued a pamphlet 'On some important Improvements in Lithographic Printing,' with illustrations to prov … [Click Below for Full Description]

Tagliacozzi, Gaspare (Taliacotii, Gasparis)
1831. Recogn. et editit M.Troschel, M.D.Viro clarissimo J.F. Dieffenbach, summo aetatis suae rhinoplastae. - Berlin, 1831, 8, XVI, 436, mit vielen Abbildungen, 4 lith. Falttaf., Halbledereinband der Zeit. Vierte und letzte Ausgabe nach mehr als 200 Jahren des Erscheinens der ersten drei Auflagen. The fourth and last edition of the pioneer work on plastic surgery. Its appearance marked the revival of interest in the rhinoplastic procedures which v.Graefe and Dieffenbach stimulated in Germany. This edition, also in octavo but with a longer page than the 1598 edition, was issued in Berlin in 1831, revised and edited by Dr. Maximilian Troschel, printed and financed by G.Reimer, and dedicated to the great Johann Friedrich Dieffenbach. Shorn of all explanatory verbiage, the title was returned to its original wording in the simple "De curtorum chirurgia per insitionem, libri duo", which stands on the title-page. The index of chapters is followed by a statement of dedication to Dieffenbach, and then by the a Preface of Troschel (pp.V-XIV). The text has consecutive pagination (1-432), to which are added four (433-436) of explanatory data on the tables. Six folded tables each containing several lithographic drawings adapted from the illustrations of the first edition, complete the volume. -cf. Gnudi & Webster, p. 194 Zeis 179 Waller 9453 32500.
