Only Romanian translation of the "Encheiridion tou orthodoxou christianou", prepared at the commission of Alexandru Isopscul, ephorus of Valachian schools.

The Russian writer and diplomat Alexandru Stourdza (1791-1854), of Moldavian-Romanian descent, was related to the Greek phanariot family Mourousis through his mother. He served as secretary to Ioannis Kapodistrias and penned the first draft of the Holy Alliance. A supporter of the Greek struggle for independence, he helped many Greek war refugees. "Inspired by the aid provided to the Greek revolutionaries by Russia in 1828, Stourdza sought to influence developments on his own. He published his 'Enchiridion or Manual of Orthodox Christians' in Greek and then in Romanian" (cf. F. Heyer, Die orientalische Frage im kirchlichen Lebenskreis [Wiesbaden 1991], 232). He retired to Odessa in 1830, where he lived as a writer. - Somewhat brownstained near beginning and end; unsophisticated cloth binding rubbed and stained. Romanian notes on endpapers.

        Arctic Tern. Sterna Arctica

      London 1832 - John Gould (1804-1881) A selection from Birds of Europe, Volume V Natores, published in London 1832-37. Lithograph with original hand-coloring measuring 14 ½” x 21 ½”. Lithograph accompanied by corresponding natural history description written by John Gould. Condition: Very good. Terns are seabirds in the taxonomic family, Sternidae. The Arctic Tern has a circumpolar distribution, breeding colonially in Arctic and sub-Arctic regions of Europe, Asia, and North America. The Arctic Tern is famous for its migration, traveling about 24,000 miles each year, the longest regular migration by any known animal. Performing almost all of its tasks in the air, the arctic tern lands only once every one to three years to nest; then take to the sky for another long southern migration. The Arctic Tern is among the taxa to which the Agreement on the Conservation of African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbirds (AEWA) applies. Parties to the Agreement are required to engage in a wide range of conservation actions which are described in a detailed action plan. John Gould was without question the most prolific natural history artist of the nineteenth century. He worked during a period of intense fascination with discoveries in natural history, especially regarding knowledge of the wildlife of exotic lands. Gould shared the romantic enthusiasm of his time for such subjects, as well as the popular impulse to catalogue exotic wildlife. He combined his passion for natural history with outstanding scientific, artistic, and entrepreneurial talents. Drawing on these abilities, he embarked on a series of projects that would eventually make him the leading publisher of ornithological illustrations in Victorian Britain. Gould’s unparalleled career spanned five decades, and he produced a monumental series of books of birds throughout the world. Gould planned the Birds of Europe in an effort to redress the imbalance between the study of local and foreign ornithology. In his preface he stated his mission: “the Birds of Europe, in which we are, or ought to be, most interested, have not received that degree of attention which they naturally demand. The present work has been undertaken to supply that deficiency.” Gould portrayed birds native to Europe in a manner that had only been thought appropriate for the colorful species of distant places. In this way he managed to draw much popular interest back to native birds, which were suddenly considered equally beautiful to exotic species.

        History Of The War In The Peninsula And In The South Of France, From The Year 1807 To The Year 1814

      London: Thomas & William Boone, 1832-40. - 6 Volumes. 8vo. with half-titles in Vols. I-II. 55 engraved plates incl. 1 map, 1 diagram & 53 of battle plans. later half chagrin, gilt backs (foxing to plates & neighbouring leaves). Second Edition of Vols. I-III and First Editions of Vols. IV-VI of this "classic of the English language." (DNB) "It is commended to the general reader no less by an impartial admiration for the heroes on both sides than by the spontaneity of its style. Its accuracy was the more firmly established by the inevitable attacks of actors in the scenes described, who thought the parts they had played undervalued." (Ibid.) "As a military historian Sir William Napier is incomparably superior to any other English writer [He] always wrote as if he was burning with an inextinguishable desire to express what he was feeling, which gives his style a peculiar spontaneity, and yet he rewrote the first volume of his History no less than six times. His descriptions of sieges and of battles are admirable by themselves, and his analyses of the peculiarly intricate Spanish intrigues are even more remarkable, while the descriptions and analyses are both lit up by flashes of political wisdom and military insight. It is to be noted that he displays the spirit of the partisan, even when most impartial, and defends his opinions, even when most undoubtedly true, as if he were arguing some controverted question The portraits of Sir John Moore and Colonel M’Leod, and the last paragraphs descriptive of the storming of Badajoz, may be taken as examples of his great natural eloquence."

In all a very good copy. Coriolis' highly important memoir on acceleration in composite motions. Coriolis expressed the principle of "force vive" (kinetic energy) as the transmission of work. Wishing to evalutate the work done by fluids in hydraulic machines and steam engines, he found simple expressions that apply to the fixed framework of the machine with respect to which the moving parts are in motion. "To the extent that consideration of relative motion in machines was unavoidable either to eliminate or to simplify the work of linking forces, theory has necessarily to deal with the question of inertial forces when the system of reference is changed" (DSB).

        Bonelli's Eagle. Aquila Bonelli.

      London 1832 - John Gould (1804-1881) A selection from Birds of Europe. Lithograph with original hand-coloring measuring 14 ½” x 21 ½”. Lithograph accompanied by corresponding natural history description written by John Gould. Condition: Very good. John Gould was without question the most prolific natural history artist of the nineteenth century. He worked during a period of intense fascination with discoveries in natural history, especially regarding knowledge of the wildlife of exotic lands. Gould shared the romantic enthusiasm of his time for such subjects, as well as the popular impulse to catalogue exotic wildlife.

In this way he managed to draw much popular interest back to native birds, which were suddenly considered equally beautiful to exotic species. Rich, vibrant color is an important attribute of the best 19th Century prints. Many prints by John Gould found on the market today have modern color that affects both the appearance and the value of these great works. John Gould died in 1881 still actively illustrating and producing fine bird books. His stock of unsold copies, unbound text and plates in various states, lithographic stones, drawings and paintings, amounted to nearly three tons. Many of the uncolored pulls from his monumental "Birds of Europe" have been recolored in the last thirty years, and these are often found on the market. Fortunately, the difference between original and modern color can be discerned by looking carefully at the print. When modern color is applied to 180 year old paper, the application is inconsistent; the cellulose of the aged paper has begun to breakdown and can no longer evenly absorb the watercolors, resulting in a splotchy uneven appearance All of the Gould bird prints in Arader Galleries' inventory have exquisite original color. The vastly superior quality of original color can be clearly differentiated from new color by its smooth and even appearance. The inks have noticeably deeper, richer tones. The difference can also be seen in the lovely surface "sheen" that results from the application of gum arabic when the lithograph was first pulled. The hand coloring of engravings and lithographs reached its zenith in the 19th Century. Works that still display their original color are more rewarding to view, and will better hold their value in the years to come.

      London 1832 - John Gould (1804-1881). A selection from Birds of Europe, published in London 1832-1837, printed by C. Hullmandel. Lithograph with original hand-coloring measuring 14 ½” x 21 ½”. Lithograph accompanied by corresponding natural history description written by John Gould. Condition: Very good, bottom page has been trimmed and backed. John Gould was without question the most prolific natural history artist of the nineteenth century. He worked during a period of intense fascination with discoveries in natural history, especially regarding knowledge of the wildlife of exotic lands. Gould shared the romantic enthusiasm of his time for such subjects, as well as the popular impulse to catalogue exotic wildlife. He combined his passion for natural history with outstanding scientific, artistic, and entrepreneurial talents. Drawing on these abilities, he embarked on a series of projects that would eventually make him the leading publisher of ornithological illustrations in Victorian Britain. The preparatory drawings that he produced were passed on for completion to skilled illustrators, most notably his wife, Elizabeth, and Edward Lear. The plates which resulted from such partnerships were a splendid fusion of art and science, with a scope that remains unsurpassed. Stunning and at the same time highly accurate, Gould's illustrations linked beauty to science, and science to beauty, in and an unprecedented manner.

The difference can also be seen in the lovely surface "sheen" that results from the application of gum arabic when the lithograph was first pulled. The hand coloring of engravings and lithographs reached its zenith in the 19th Century. Works that still display their original color are more rewarding to view, and will better hold their value in the years to come.

        Common Cormorant - Phalacrocorax Carbo

      London 1832 - John Gould (1804-1881) A selection from Birds of Europe. Lithograph with original hand-coloring measuring 14 ½” x 21 ½”. Lithograph accompanied by corresponding natural history description written by John Gould. Condition: Very good. John Gould was without question the most prolific natural history artist of the nineteenth century. He worked during a period of intense fascination with discoveries in natural history, especially regarding knowledge of the wildlife of exotic lands. Gould shared the romantic enthusiasm of his time for such subjects, as well as the popular impulse to catalogue exotic wildlife. He combined his passion for natural history with outstanding scientific, artistic, and entrepreneurial talents. Drawing on these abilities, he embarked on a series of projects that would eventually make him the leading publisher of ornithological illustrations in Victorian Britain. Gould’s unparalleled career spanned five decades, and he produced a monumental series of books of birds throughout the world. Gould planned the Birds of Europe in an effort to redress the imbalance between the study of local and foreign ornithology. In his preface he stated his mission: “the Birds of Europe, in which we are, or ought to be, most interested, have not received that degree of attention which they naturally demand. The present work has been undertaken to supply that deficiency.” Gould portrayed birds native to Europe in a manner that had only been thought appropriate for the colorful species of distant places. In this way he managed to draw much popular interest back to native birds, which were suddenly considered equally beautiful to exotic species. Rich, vibrant color is an important attribute of the best 19th Century prints. Many prints by John Gould found on the market today have modern color that affects both the appearance and the value of these great works. John Gould died in 1881 still actively illustrating and producing fine bird books. His stock of unsold copies, unbound text and plates in various states, lithographic stones, drawings and paintings, amounted to nearly three tons. Many of the uncolored pulls from his monumental "Birds of Europe" have been recolored in the last thirty years, and these are often found on the market. Fortunately, the difference between original and modern color can be discerned by looking carefully at the print. When modern color is applied to 180 year old paper, the application is inconsistent; the cellulose of the aged paper has begun to breakdown and can no longer evenly absorb the watercolors, resulting in a splotchy uneven appearance All of the Gould bird prints in Arader Galleries' inventory have exquisite original color.

        Customs and Manners of the Women of Persia, and their Domestic Superstitions

      London: Printed for the Oriental Translation Fund of Great Britain and Ireland,, 1832. Translated from the Original Persian Manuscript. Octavo (210 × 130 mm). Modern half calf, tan morocco longitudinal label to spine, brown linen sides. Charming lithographic frontispiece from a sketch by the author, printed on India paper and laid down, title-page vignette. Frontispiece browned around the laid-down sheet, but not onto it, browning offset onto the title page, slight marginal damp stain in the head-margin for a few leaves front and back, but a very good copy. First and only edition. "An amusing translation of a Persian essay on harem life" (ODNB). A surgeon in the Bengal service, Atkinson attracted Lord Minto's attention for his linguistic skills and was "given the appointment of assistant assay master at the mint, which he retained until 1828. In 1818 he also filled the deputy chair of Persian in Fort William College … In addition to his appointment at the mint, he held the post of superintendent of the Government Gazette from 1817 to 1828. When the official connection of the government with that journal was discontinued in 1823, the proprietors, in view of his previous success, invited Atkinson to take sole charge of both the Gazette and the Press." Atkinson was chief surgeon to the Army of the Indus during the First Afghan War, but he returned to Bengal in 1841 "and thus escaped the fate which awaited the army of occupation." His Persian translations in both prose and verse are his chief claim to fame, "accomplished in literature and art, both a scholar and a popular writer, James Atkinson was a pioneer of oriental research." The present work is a translation of the Kitabi Kulsum Naneh, and was well reviewed by the Asiatic Journal, whose reviewer considered that it showed "the actual state of Persian life behind the curtain … drawn by the sportive pencil of a caricaturist; a circumstance, which indeed, imparts a feature of additional interest to the work" (New Series, volume X, number 37, 1833).

In his Preface the author states that he has taken "much curious information" from the Philosophical Transactions, more particularly from the papers of Sir W. Herschel. Sir John Herschel [1792 - 1871]. Sir John Herschel was a scientist and astronomer like his father, Sir William Herschel [ who discovered the planet Uranus] . In 1809 he entered the University of Cambridge; in 1812 he submitted his first mathematical paper to the Royal Society, of which he was elected a fellow the following year. An accomplished chemist, Herschel discovered the action of hyposulfite of soda on otherwise insoluble silver salts in 1819, which led to the use of "hypo" as a fixing agent in photography. In 1839, independently of William Henry Fox Talbot, Herschel also invented a photographic process using sensitized paper. It was Herschel who coined the use of the terms photography, positive, and negative to refer to photographic images. In 1820 Herschel became a founding member of the Royal Astronomical Society. From 1833 until 1838, his astronomical investigations brought him and his family to the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa, where he met Julia Margaret Cameron, who became a lifelong friend. In 1850 Herschel was appointed master of the Mint, but he resigned six years later due to poor health. His remaining years were spent working on his catalogs of double stars and of nebulae and star clusters. From the library of noted scholar, Dr. Sydney Ross, Emeritus Professor of Colloid Science, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, with his elegant small gilt & crimson bookplate on the front pastedown.

        On the Economy of Machinery and Manufactures

      London: Charles Knight, 1832. Small octavo, engraved title-page, original maroon cloth, neatly rebacked retaining original spine. Babbage's most successful work. Second edition of Charles Babbage's most successful work: there were four editions between 1832 and 1835 and the book was translated into at least six European languages. Babbage wrote this at the time he was working on his famous calculating machine, his first forerunner of the modern computer; his study was based on a conscientious and detailed survey of factories and workshops, both in England and on the continent. In his preface he acknowledges that the book is a direct consequence of his research and the many hours spent visiting places of manufacture in connection with the development of the calculating machine. Babbage's work reflects his broader preoccupations with scientific and industrial life, political economy, and philosophy, which is perhaps why is was so successful with the general reading public. He advocated the decimalization of currency, foresaw the role of tidal power as an energy source, and predicted the exhaustion of coal reserves, later commenting that if posterity failed to find a substitute for coal then it deserved to be frostbitten. This small volume was a turning point in economic writing and firmly established Babbage as a leading authority of the industrial movement. Various handwritten notes on inside page pertaining to the rarity of the book and a private lending label adhered to front laid-down endpaper.

        New Harmony (on the Wabash)

      Paris 1832 - Karl Bodmer; From Travels in the Interior of North America; Paris, 1832-1843 Hand-colored aquatint engravings; paper size approximately 17 1/2” x 22 1/2”Karl Bodmer was a little-known Swiss painter when he was chosen by Prince Maximilian of Prussia to accompany his voyage to America, in order to document in pictorial terms the expedition. With the rest of Maximilian’s company, the two traveled among the Plains Indians from 1832 to 1834, a time when the Plains and the Rockies were still virtually unknown. They arrived in the West before acculturation had begun to change the lives of the Indians, and Bodmer, who was a protegé of the great naturalist von Humbolt, brought a trained ethnologist’s eye to the task. The Bodmer/Maximilian collaboration produced a record of their expedition that is incontestably the finest early graphic study of the Plains tribes. Maximilian and Bodmer journeyed from St. Louis up the Missouri River on the American Fur Company steamboat “Yellowstone,” stopping at a series of forts built by the Fur Company and meeting their first Indians at Bellevue. The travelers continued on another steamboat, “Assiniboin,” to Fort Union, where they met the Crees and Assiniboins. The expedition spent its first winter at Fort Clark, where the Mandans in particular excited Bodmer’s attention, although he was also to draw the Minatarri and Crow peoples. The explorers continued by keelboat to Fort Mackenzie, which proved to be the westernmost point of their journey. After living among and studying the Blackfeet for several weeks, Maximilian decided that it was too dangerous to continue, so the travelers returned southward, reaching St. Louis in May 1834. After the conclusion of the journey, Bodmer spent four years in Paris supervising the production of the aquatints made from his drawings. These prints rank with the finest Western art in any medium, and they are the most complete record of the Plains Indians before the epidemics of the mid-19th century had decimated their numbers, and before the white man’s expansion had taken their lands. In contrast to other artist-explorers of the 19th century, such as George Catlin, Bodmer was well-trained in the classic European tradition. The work that he did in America is considered to be the high point of a distinguished career. Perhaps more significant, the plates made from Bodmer's sketches were the first truly accurate images of the Plains Indians to reach the general public. Because the 1837 smallpox epidemic killed more than half the Blackfeet and almost all the Mandans, Bodmer’s visually striking work, together with prince Maximilian’s detailed studies of these tribes, form the primary accounts of what became virtually lost cultures. These spectacular and atmospheric images are important and beautiful records of the landscape of the American West as it appeared when Bodmer saw it, just before westward expansion took hold and began the indelible transformation of the frontier.
