         Scene della vita privata...

      Sei volumi di cm. 13,5, pp. 649 complessive. Graziosa antiporta incisa ed in coloritura coeva a ciascuno dei sei volumi. Legatura strettamente coeva in cartoncino colorato con titoli manoscritti su tasselli in carta ai dorsi. Esemplare fresco, genuino ed in ottimo stato di conservazione. Si tratta della prima traduzone italiana (di L. Marzieri) del celebre capolavoro apparso in Francia pochi anni prima. E' inoltre verosimilmente la prima opera di Balzac tradotta nel nostro idioma. "Tra il 1830 e il 1850, si segnalano quattro edizioni delle Scene della vita privata: la prima, pubblicata a Livorno presso Vignozzi nel 1832 costituirà il modello di riferimento testuale delle successive edizioni apparse a Napoli nel 1834 (Tramater), a Milano nel 1835 (Truffi) e a Verona - con il titolo di Scene della vita privata, parigina e provinciale - presso Antonelli, nel 1837." Cfr. Marco Stupazzoni in: Honoré de Balzac, Alla casa del "Gatto che gioca a palla" pp. 159-60. Assai raro, soprattutto quando completo ed in impeccabile stato di ocnservazione come il presente esemplare.

         Interiors Drawn on stone

      Ackermann & Co 1832 - According to Christies, this extremely rare book is one of only four known copies of this book in the world. The other three reside in libraries in the United States and Germany. We believe that only a handful of these books were published in 1832. The inside front board has the numeral 4 printed on it and the inside back board has the number 2. The leather front and back boards have become detached from the leaves and there is no spine. We have spoken to conservators who are reluctant to fit a new spine as the leather would cover the image on the inside front and back boards. The book comprises 24 plates, each with a soft tissue leaf. The dimensions are 29cms x 24 cms. The pages have foxing as one would expect from such an old book but are otherwise in very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Frankenstein; or, the Modern Prometheus, Revised, Corrected, and Illustrated with a New Introduction by the Author. Volume IX of Bentley's Standard Novels series.

      London: Henry Colburn & Richard Bentley, 1832. - SECOND PRINTING OF THE THIRD EDITION. 1 vol., with the engraved frontis, with a new introduction by Mary Shelley, bound with the "Ghost-Seer" as issued. Bound in the publisher's original mauve cloth, with the original gilt leather spine labels, textblock uncut as issued. Spine slight sunned, wear to edges of spine labels, vertical split to spine cloth but not detached, back corners good, inner hinges fine, front outer hinge fine, upper rear hinge just starting, head and foot of spine rubbed with some minor loss, internally clean and bright, no previous ownership markings or bookplate, a VERY GOOD completely unsophisticated copy of a notoriously difficult book to find in original cloth. Rebound, restored, rebacked, relined, recased copies of the bentley edition occasionally appear on the market for equal or more money but this copy has thankfully eluded the re-storer. All first four printings of "Frankenstein" are scarce. The first and second printing of the third edition contain the first ever attempt to illustrate the Monster. This edition essentially identical to the third printing but with a new introduction by Mary Shelley that does not appear in the third printing. In her introduction, Shelley contextualizes the creation of her tale: "It proved a wet, ungenial summer, and incessant rain often confined us for days to the house. Some volumes of ghost stories, translated from the German into French, fell into our hands¿ 'We will each write a ghost story,' said Lord Byron; and his proposition was acceded to" [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         A Memoir of the late Captain Peter Heywood, R. N. with extracts from His Diaries and Correspondence

      London Effingham Wilson 1832 - First edition. 332 pages plus 16 pages of ads to the rear and the errata slip before the preface. Inscribed to the front endpaper: "L Holbrook Gaskell Esq with the author's kind respects.", the Holbrook Gaskell in question presumably being the noted Victorian industrialist and collector. The book is firmly bound, it has been sympathetically re-spined in period style in cloth with a paper title label, preserving the original paper covered boards, which are somewhat bumped, creased and slightly marked. The text block is slightly foxed, dusty and toned. An account of Heywood's life, published shortly after his death, with numerous quotes from letters and diaries, it remains a valuable resource for those wishing to rake over the justice or lack thereof, in the Mutiny on the Bounty and the fate of the captured mutineers. It is still far from clear whether the young Heywood, only fifteen at the time of the mutiny, was complicit in the mutiny, or indeed whether the mutiny itself was mitigated by Bligh's behaviour. The balance of current opinion seems to lie in Heywood having occupied a far from honourable role in the mutiny, and that he perjured himself at the trial to obtain the pardon, which was granted with the additional help of petitions from influential friends and family, leading to a concern that: "money had bought the lives of some, and others fell sacrifice to their poverty.". Even this memoir, which is ostensibly entirely favourable and authored by a man who had met Heywood and been allowed access to his records by the family, fails to avoid conveying a sense of ambiguity surrounding the events on the Bounty and at the subsequent trial. Uncommon as a first edition and this copy with the added interest of being inscribed by the author. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

         THE LIFE OF GEORGE WASHINGTON, COMMANDER IN CHIEF OF THE AMERICAN FORCES, DURING THE WAR WHICH ESTABLISHED THE INDEPENDENCE OF HIS COUNTY, AND FIRST PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES... [WITH THE ATLAS]

      Philadelphia: C. P. Wayne; J. Crissy, 1832. Full Leather. Very Good binding. The First Edition in five volumes of the first serious biography of Washington and really a comprehensive account of the founding of the nation. Washington's executor selected John Marshall to write the biography, and in that sense it might be considered "an authorized biography". But it is more than that.Marshall was Washington's personal friend -- he knew the man, and he knew the new republic. His work gained authoritative status almost immediately. A complete set with the Atlas Volume a bit later, published by Crissy in Philadelphia in 1832; complete with the ten maps. Volume I with the engraved frontispiece portrait. This set has been repaired -- Volume I has had some gluing to the spine, especially where the textblock had been splitting; volumes IV and V have some patching to the spines. All have the attractive original marbled endpapers. The Atlas volume is in the original paper-covered boards with the green pastedown title label; it has been rebacked with new brown calf and new corners in calf. (Howes M317; Sabin 44788. Shaw & Shoemaker 6710.). Very Good binding.

      Philadelphia: C. P. Wayne; J. Crissy, 1832. Full Leather. Very Good binding. The First Edition in five volumes of the first serious biography of Washington and really a comprehensive account of the founding of the nation. Washington's executor selected John Marshall to write the biography, and in that sense it might be considered "an authorized biography". But it is more than that. Marshall was Washington's personal friend -- he knew the man, and he knew the new republic. His work gained authoritative status almost immediately. A complete set with the Atlas Volume a bit later, published by Crissy in Philadelphia in 1832; complete with the ten maps. Volume I with the engraved frontispiece portrait. This set has been repaired -- Volume I has had some gluing to the spine, especially where the textblock had been splitting; volumes IV and V have some patching to the spines. All have the attractive original marbled endpapers. The Atlas volume is in the original paper-covered boards with the green pastedown title label; it has been rebacked with new brown calf and new corners in calf. (Howes M317; Sabin 44788. Shaw & Shoemaker 6710.). Very Good binding.

         On the Economy of Machinery and Manufactures

      Charles Knight, Pall Mall East, London 1832 - At xvi, 320 pp. followed by 2 pp. publisher's advertisements, this is the first edition of Babbage's classic treatise, the first known book of operations research, discussing topics including the regulation of power, control of raw materials, division of labor, time studies, the advantage of size in manufacturing, inventory control, and duration and replacement of machinery. On pp. 166-167 Babbage analyzes the production of this book as an example of the cost of each step in a particular production process. "The work was Babbage's most complete and professional piece of writing," going through four editions in his lifetime. Furthermore, while most copies (even of the expanded, later editions) now available have been rebound, this copy is in the original binding of purple cloth (showing a moire pattern, probably silk), and scarce thus, though faded to brown at the spine and along top of the rear board, where it appears to have been shelved next to a shorter volume. Purple library stamps of the Collegium Maximum Heythrop. to blank FFE and to engraved title page, only. No other library markings or attachments. Previous owner's name in period script to top of second blank. Light foxing to preliminaries. This volume complete with its original endpapers, which have not needed any repair. Small nick at front of spine; bottom board corners peeking through the cloth. The calculating engines of English mathematician Charles Babbage (1791-1871) are among the most celebrated icons in the prehistory of computing. Babbage's Difference Engine No.1 was the first successful automatic calculator and remains one of the finest examples of precision engineering of the time -- though in fact the critical tolerances required by his machines exceeded the level of materials technology then available. Sometimes referred to as the "father of computing," Babbage was already famous for his work on his calculating machine when he secured a grant of £1500 to pursue his inquiries into the economics of manufacturing, this book being the result. In his preface he acknowledges the book is a direct consequence of his research and many hours spent visiting places of manufacture in connection with the development of his calculating machine. Elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1816 and playing a prominent role in the foundation of the Astronomical Society (later the Royal Astronomical Society) in 1820, he advocated the decimalization of currency, foresaw the role of tidal power as an energy source, and predicted the exhaustion of coal reserves. He also played an important role in the establishment of the Association for the Advancement of Science and the Statistical Society (later the Royal Statistical Society). Only fragments of Babbage's prototype Difference Engine have been preserved, and though he spent most of his time and large fortune after 1856 attempting to build his subsequent, multi-task Analytical Engine, he never succeeded in completing any of his several designs. George Scheutz, a Swedish printer, did successfully construct a machine based on Babbage's Difference Engine in 1854. That machine printed mathematical, astronomical and actuarial tables with unprecedented accuracy, and was used by the British and American governments. This small volume was a turning point in economic writing and firmly established Babbage as a leading authority of the industrial movement. History of science, mechanical engineering.

         Reise in das innere Nord-Amerika Die Jahre 1832-1834 [Gebundene Ausgabe] Maximilian Prinz zu Wied (Autor), Karl Bodmer (Autor) North America Völkerkunde Reisen Reiseberichte Nord- / Mittelamerika Indi

      Ein prächtiger Bildband mit faszinierenden Bildern des Schweizer Malers Karl Bodmer und Auszügen aus den Reisetagebüchern des Prinzen zu Wied. Er sollte in keiner Bibiliothek des Geschichts- oder Kulturinteressierten fehlen. Auf ihrer "Reise in das Innere Nordamerika" (1832-1834) haben der deutsche Fürst Prinz Maximilian zu Wied und der Schweizer Maler Karl Bodmer ein Werk für die Ewigkeit geschaffen. Gleichsam die Worte aus den Reisetagebücher zu Wieds als auch die künstlerischen Fertigkeiten Bodmers, die diese fantastischen Gemälde erst möglich gemacht haben, tragen mit dazu bei, daß die Erinnerung und das Wissen von den Lebensweisen der besuchten Völker nicht ausgelöscht werden. Auch wenn einige der besuchten Stämme fast ausgestorben sind, ihre Kultur zerstört ist, so leben sie doch in den Erzählungen und Bildern weiter! Auf sehr anschauliche Art und Weise werden versunkene Indianerkulturen hier wieder lebendig. Die Aufzeichnungen des Prinzen zählen noch heute zur ersten Wahl der Völkerkundeliteratur. Auch wenn sie nicht die ersten Forscher waren, die die Stämme besucht haben (vor ihnen waren 1804 - 1806 ja schon Lewis & Clark zur Erforschung des Westens unterwegs), und auch nach ihnen noch Maler und Völkerkundler die Stämme besuchten (z.b. George Catlin), so zählen die Aquarelle Bodmers doch zu den detailgenausten und herausragendsten Arbeiten, die je ein Künstler am "Lebenden Objekt" porträtiert hat. Die Bilder Bodmers, werden in diesem aufwendig gestalteten Bildband würdig präsentiert. Einzig die Reiseerzählungen sind für meinen Geschmack zu sehr gekürzt worden (was sich aber dadurch erklärt, daß Bilder und Text in Zusammenhang gebracht werden sollten - und für viele Passagen aus den sehr umfangreichen Reisetagebüchern des Prinzen, gibt es kein entsprechendes künstlerisches Vermächtnis von Karl Bodmer. Insgesamt jedoch ein Bildband der jeden einzelnen Cent wert ist.

         Lengthy illustrated manuscript entitled "Scraps of Poetry Selected for M[ary]. A[nn]. Jones. 1823"

      Various locations at sea and Philadelphia 1832 - Hand-colored nautical-themed title-page and watercolor illustrations throughout, including 17 full-page, 2 double-page, 10 half-page, and 27 vignettes (a few uncolored in pencil), 2 inserted pattern samples, manuscript entries titled in colored calligraphic script. 272 pp. 4to [12-1/2 x 8 inches (32 x 21 cm)]. With Numerous Watercolors of Nautical and American Subjects. A fine, profusely illustrated Naval commonplace book kept by a Philadelphia merchant seaman, including numerous full-page watercolor illustrations of ships, American locales, patriotic themes, monuments, etc. The album's dedicatee would seem to be one Mary Ann Jones, the beloved of the copyist and illustrator, who includes several poems of a romantic nature dedicated to "Mary" or "Mary Ann" in the album. The identity of the album's creator is unknown, though he signs a few of the illustrations "RJ" - Jones being the last name, presuming Mary Ann is his wife. Several of the illustrations--many of them quite accomplished-have a nautical theme; these include a fine, full page illustration of the Brig Latona (from which a few of the entries are dated); a double-page illustration of an American and a British ship at sea; a full-page illustration of a ship in dry dock; a half-page illustration of a ship navigating a lake; a title-page vignette with a trio of American ships at sea; American ships in a harbor; and others. A number of the non nautical-themed illustrations have patriotic or American subjects, including a double-page illustration of an American army camp with a uniformed guard and a soldier on horseback; an allegorical tribute to Washington incorporating an eagle and United States insignia; Washington's tomb; the Bunker Hill monument; the Philadelphia Bank; a natural bridge in Virginia; Water Works in Centre Square, Philadelphia (uncolored pencil sketch), and others. Non-American and decorative subjects include a "View of a Mosque near Bussorah," graveyard scenes, an Irish cabin, various monuments and sepulchers, village scenes, architectural studies, cathedral interiors, a lighthouse, Napoleon's pillar, a portrait of a lady, several roses, a lyre, an urn, etc.Entries and illustrations span the dates 1823-1832, a large number of them executed at sea according to notations. Jones seems to have been primarily engaged on the trade route between Philadelphia (evidently his hometown, from which numerous entries are dated) and South America, the most frequent place names provided being Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, and Pernambuco. He made at least one trip North East, however-one entry is dated from Bonavista (Newfoundland) in 1829, another following a few pages later dated Isle of May (Scotland) October 1829. One entry is dated from Baltimore. A partial chronology constructed from the names of ships provided by Jones is as follows: Ship Hebe, May-August 1823 and January-May 1824; Brig Liberty, Buenos Aires, May 1825; Brig America, Pernambuco (Brazil), August 1826; Brig Elbe, September-October 1826; Brig Latona, March-May 1827; Brig Florenzo, Rio de Janeiro, January 1828. Several layovers in Philadelphia are noted at dates in between the above, and a large number of entries are undated. One of the most extensively and competently illustrated naval commonplace books we have encountered. Original quarter leather and marble backed boards. Title and following leaf detached, a few other leaves sprung toward end, a few margins strengthened, tear to edge of one leaf, some wear to covers but overall clean internally, illustrations bright and fresh. In a quarter blue morocco slipcase and chemise Hand-colored nautical-themed title-page and watercolor illustrations throughout, including 17 full-page, 2 double-page, 10 half-page, and 27 vignettes (a few uncolored in pencil), 2 inserted pattern samples, manuscript entries titled in colored calligraphic script. 272 pp. 4to [12-1/2 x 8 inches (32 x 21 cm)]

Advocating the Equality of Women 1832: Trial of the followers of Saint-Simon. At the funeral of influential social thinker Claude-Henri de Rouvroy, comte de Saint-Simon (1760-1825), his disciples founded a movement to foster socio-political cooperation and development for the common welfare of humanity. Even before the trial, a schism had split the movement. Olinde Rodrigues, an original disciple of Saint-Simon, founded an organized religious movement in December 1831. Account of the August 1832 trial of Prosper Enfantin (1796-1864) and his fellow Saint-Simonians for illegal assembly and public meetings at which, advocating the equality of women through spoken discourse and printed works, they commited crimes "in violation of public morality and good morals" (outrage à la morale publique et aux bonnes moeurs)."La supériorité que, d'après les lois, l'home exerce en certains cas sur la femme, est, suivant les Saint-Simoniens , un autre abus auquel il faut mettre un terme. De la des principes nouveaux sure le marriage, sur le divorce et des principes nouveaux sure le mariage; ces principes et els ecrits dans lesquels ils sont exposés, sont signalés commes contraires à la morale publique et aux bonnes moeurs."The title leaf is printed as an unsigned first leaf of the second gathering. The two plates include a bust portrait of Prosper Enfantin, designated "Le Père" (Father), and a leaf with portraits of the four accused. Prosper Enfantin and Michel Chevalier served six months in prison. Enfantin and a group of his followers subsequently lived in for a time in Egypt, but their technocratic scheme to construct a dam in the Nile foundered. The Saint-Simonian movement had waned by the time of the Second Empire, but their ideals and revolutionary aims influenced many nineteenth-century thinkers, Marx and Engels among them.Only one copy recorded in North America and four in France.
