        Paris oder das Buch der Hundert und Ein. Aus dem Französischen übersetzt von Theodor Hell. 6 in 3 Bänden.

      Potsdam, Riegel, 1832-1833.. 8°. Zusammen etwa 2300 Seiten Halb-Leinenbände um 1920 mit Rückenschild. Fromm 19588. Seltene erste deutsche Ausgabe des erfolgreichen Sammelwerkes "Paris, ou le livre des cent-et-un", bei dem sich mehr als Hundert Schriftsteller zusammentaten, als der Verleger (und dann auch Herausgeber) Ladvocat in finanzielle Schwierigkeiten geriet. Anküpfend an die explizit im Vorwort genannten Werke von Mercier und Lesage, soll hier ein Gesamtpanorama der Kapitale Paris in vielen kleinen, oft satirischen Miniaturen gezeichnet werden. Unter den Beiträgern finden sich: Balzac, Barthelemy, Beranger, Bozet, Chateaubriand, Cuvier (der Naturwissenschaftler!), Eugene Delacroix (der Maler), de Vigny, Dumas, Victor Hugo, Lamartine, Nodier, Sainte-Beuve, Sue, Thiers, Tissot und viele andere. Interessant ist der Eröffnungsartikel von Jules Janin über die Vielfältigkeit des Kosmos Paris, den eine Generation vorher Mercier allein darzustellen versuchte, der aber jetzt nur noch von einem Kollektiv verschiedener Autoren in all seinen Facetten geschildert werden könne. Die Beiträge widmen sich dem literarischen Leben, Theatern und Revuen, den Auswanderern, Kaffeehäusern, Krankheiten und Seuchen, Spielhöllen, der Irrenanstalt etc. Die deutsche Ãœbersetzung von Theodor Hell (eigentlich: Karl G. Th. Winkler, 1775-1856) ist offenbar gleich parallel zur französischen Originalausgabe erschienen, wobei nur diese Potsdamer Edition bis zum sechsten Band weitergeführt wurde. Die Ausgaben bei Cotta, Vieweg und Basse brachen nach dem ersten Band ab (vgl. Fromm 19589-91). - Gut erhalten, wenig gebräunt. So komplett sehr selten.

        Autograph letter signed to Mr. Chauvin presenting a copy of the official account of his voyage

      no place: no date but circa, 1832. Single sheet of laid paper, 207 x 260 mm., folded vertically to form a letter, written in a small and neat hand to first page and addressed - but not stamped - to the last, old folds; excellent. Dumont d'Urville presents his new work to a scientific opinion-maker. Attractive letter in which the great Pacific and Antarctic explorer Dumont d'Urville presents the first parts of his official voyage account to the natural historian F.J. Chauvin of Caen, active in botanical studies in the mid-nineteenth century. Chauvin's herbarium is still held at the Université de Caen, and his name is memorialised in several plant names. In the letter, Dumont d'Urville sends Chauvin the "first two parts" of his voyage account, in the hope that they will of interest. It may be that he was sending the first parts of the historical narrative of the voyage, first published in 1830, but given Chauvin's botanical studies, it is probably fair to assume that he was being sent the two parts of the Botanie volume, edited by Lesson & Richard (I. Essai d'une Flore de la Nouvelle Zelande. II. Sertum Astrolabianum, Paris, 1832-4). Only as a postscript to the letter does Dumont d'Urville remember to offer his regards to Chauvin's wife and little girl. Dumont d'Urville had sailed on the Astrolabe (Duperrey's old ship the Coquille, renamed in honour of La Pérouse) from Toulon in April 1826. He was instructed to explore the principal island groups in the South Pacific, completing the work of the Duperrey voyage, on which the commander himself had been a naturalist. Because of his great interest in natural history, huge amounts of scientific data and specimens were collected, described and illustrated in sumptuous folio atlases. The expedition stopped at the Cape of Good Hope, passed through Bass Strait visiting Port Phillip, and arrived at Sydney on 1 December 1828. Extensive visits were made to both Sydney and Parramatta, where Dumont d'Urville visited Samuel Marsden; the expedition sailed for New Zealand in January 1827, explored Tasman Bay, found a pass between an island in Cook Strait and the northern shore of South Island (the island consequently named D'Urville and the strait French Strait) and worked up the coast of North Island, completing the 'most comprehensive exploration of the islands since Cook's death'. They made Tonga in April 1827, explored the Fiji Archipelago, New Britain and New Guinea. In November, after a stop at Amboina, they coasted along the north-west coast of Australia and reached Tasmania. In 1828 they continued to Vanikoro in search of traces of La Pérouse, and stopped at Guam in the Marianas, before returning via the Cape of Good Hope, reaching Marseille on 25 March 1829.

        Neuestes Gemälde von Australien

      Vienna: Anton Doll, 1832. Octavo, with six full-page copperplate engravings; some old and small library stamps throughout, early shelf-mark on front board, but a very nice copy in an attractive contemporary European binding of glazed paper masquerading as quarter calf with russet label, marbled paper spine and boards. An early German-language history of New Holland, featuring crisp images of Sydney and Hobart, after Leopold Beyer and Sainson respectively. The work begins with a helpful introduction to the voyages of exploration, including a chronological table, and is followed by a long review of New Holland (pages 39-126). Later sections detail many of the most important islands in the Pacific, including good reviews of Hawaii, New Zealand and New Guinea. All of the plates make a lovely contribution to the visual history of the Pacific. Apart from the views of Sydney and Hobart, there are also strong depictions of Carteret Bay on the Bismarck Archipelago, the funerary practices of the Solomon Islands, a scene of the restrictions for taboo in Tonga, and of a British settlement in Tahiti. The work was published as volume 30 of Schütz's series Allgemeine Erdkunde, and a list of all the titles is given at the back. As this individual volume is the only one in the series relevant to the Pacific, it is commonly sold by itself: both the Mitchell Library and National Library of Australia copies are recorded as a single volume.

        Sketch of the History of Van Diemen's Land , illustrated by a map of the island and an account of the Van Diemen's Land Company

      John Richardson, London 1832 - Octavo, with two engraved plates and a large hand-coloured folding map (closed tear neatly repaired), very good in original boards with green cloth spine and printed label. With a fine Arrowsmith map. First edition. An important account of Tasmania, intended for distribution among shareholders and prospective shareholders of the Van Diemen's Land Company, reprinting several of the company's reports, including the significant (and rare) third report of 1828 detailing the explorations of the company's explorers, Alexander Goldie, Henry Hellyer, and Joseph Fossey. It was Hellyer who 'found a cliff of slate on the Arthur River, and promptly engraved on a large slab the words "Whoever is found stealing slate from this quarry, will be dealt with according to law". Apart from the inherent unlikelihood of anyone making off with large quantities of slate, the claim of ownership is revealing for its total self-assurance in the face of the wilderness?' (People, Print and Paper). The work is wide ranging, including sections on geography, wildlife, trade and emigration. Of interest is the correspondence contained in the appendix between the governor George Arthur and his superiors in London, including Viscount Goderich and Sir George Murray, regarding the escalating tension between settlers and the Tasmanian Aborigines. The appendix also includes the substantial "Extract from the Report of the Aborigines Committee, 19th March 1830." From the library of Australiana collector Tristan Buestt with his bookplate.

        Viaje alrededor del mundo hecho en los años 1768, 69, 70 y 71 por el célebre Comandante del navío del Rey El Endeavour... Traducido del francés por D. Santiago de Alvarado y de la Peña

      Madrid: Imprenta de Don Tomás Jordan, 1832. Six volumes, duodecimo, 6 engraved plates (one in each volume), original blue printed wrappers preserved, early owner's name on the title-pages, old stamps from Barcelona library, bookplates of José Gallart Folch; a charming set in contemporary Spanish quarter calf, gilt. Very uncommon first Spanish edition of Cook's first voyage, published in 1832 as part of a series called the "New Library of Modern Voyages useful and interesting for Spanish youth." This work has a charming series of six plates which include a scene in Tahiti featuring the Chief Mourner, two New Zealand scenes (a warrior in profile, the war canoe), and concluding with a dramatic scene on board the Endeavour. The presence of the original printed wrappers bound-in is of more than passing interest as the back wrappers give an interesting overview of how the set was marketed, being sold for 6 reales per volume as they were issued whether in Madrid or in the provinces, and stressing the value of the work for the instruction of youth. Each volume would subsequently be priced 8 reales per volume. The translator, Alvarado y de la Pen?a, based his work on the French edition. He also prepared at least one other work of Australian interest, an edition of George Barrington published in Madrid circa 1815. Beddie listed copies in the Mitchell and National Library.

        On The Economy of Machinery and Manufactures

      London: Charles Knight, , 1832. Octavo (170 × 104 mm). Original purple cloth, rebacked preserving the original spine. Engraved title page. Original spine ends worn. First edition. On the Economy of Machinery and Manufactures was Babbage's most successful lifetime publication, selling 3,000 copies. Prompted by the demands for precision in the construction of his first calculating engine, Babbage had made a conscientious and detailed survey of factories and workshops both in England and Europe. An encyclopaedic record of craft, manufacturing, and industrial processes, as well as an analysis of the domestic organization of factories, the work demonstrates Babbage's remarkable prescience. He proposed many scientific management techniques for the first time, including subdivided work, cost accounting, and merit pay systems. He advocated the decimalization of currency, foresaw the role of tidal power as an energy source, and predicted the exhaustion of coal reserves. "The book is at once a hymn to the machine, an analysis of the development of machine-based production in the factory, and a discussion of social relations in industry… It was at once translated into French and German, both translations being published in 1833. Throughout the world the book had much effect, becoming the 'locus classicus' of the discussion of machinery and manufacturing" (Anthony Human, Charles Babbage, Pioneer of the Computer). "Economy was a turning point in economic writing and firmly established Babbage as a leading authority of the industrial movement" (ODNB).

        PRIMER DOCUMENT DE LA PUDA DE MONTSERRAT A FAVOR DE PAU GARRIGA I LA SEVA POSADA EN MARXA

      1832 - Esparraguera. 1832. 4h. 32X22. Primer Doc. Raríssim document de la Puda de Montserrat on pasa a ser el propietari Pau Garriga germa de Salvador Garriga siucidat per causes economicas per a la creació de la Puda. La Puda o La Puda de Montserrat, és un antic balneari situat al marge esquerre del riu Llobregat, tot just passat el Congost del Cairat. Es troba al terme municipal d'Esparreguera i des del 18 de març de 1868 pertany a la parròquia de Santa Maria d'Olesa de Montserrat. Arran d'un terratrèmol hi brollen aigües sulfuroses des del segle XVIII. La primera referència històrica, però, data del 1718 quan el doctor Salvador féu la primera anàlisi química de les aigües. Aquestes aigües, de naturalesa sulfurosa-sòdica, brollen a una temperatura de 32 °C i es calcula el seu cabal actual en uns 4 l/s que s'aboquen directament al riu Llobregat. Les aigües van començar a ser usades amb finalitats medicinals l'any 1818. L'any 1829 es varen començar a construir dos edificis de banys, a cadascuna de les dues ribes del riu Llobregat aprofitant les dues surgències d'aigua termal que brollaven a banda i banda del riu, sota la direcció facultativa del metge Antoni Coca i Rabassa i la intervenció de Salvador Garriga, un sastre d'Esparreguera. Degut a la falta de diners, Garriga se suïcidà l'any 1831, i el seu germà continuà les obres, associat amb Francesc Castells i Francesc Pedrosa. L'any 1834 els edificis ja estaven en ple funcionament. Les riuades del riu Llobregat de 1842 i 1843 inundaren i arrasaren els edificis. L'alçada tant summament baixa a què brolla l'aigua mineral (al nivell del riu) va impedir que els edificis es poguessin construir a gaire més altura cosa que va provocar la seva destrucció amb la riuada. Aquest fet també ha afectat als edificis actuals, ja que en diverses ocasions han sofert les envestides del riu. marges de abaix una mica fatigats. Ref 30 Biblioteca A. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Experimental researches in electricity. 30 series of papers, plus supplement to the 11th series, extracted from Philosophical Transactions. 4to. 18 plates. [London, 1832-56]. 285 x 224 mm. Extracts bound in 1 vol., modern morocco gilt. Fine set.</p><p>First Editions. An extremely rare, fine complete set of Faraday&#39;s epochal papers on electricity, as they originally appeared in the Philosophical Transactions over 24 years. It was through his "Experimental researches" that Faraday announced his major findings relating to electricity and magnetism, the most important of which was his discovery of the means of generating electricity from electro-magnetic induction-the principle behind the dynamo and the transformer, and the foundation of the modern use of electricity. The "Experimental researches" also contain Faraday&#39;s demonstration of the identity of all forms of electricity, his discovery of the laws of electrolysis, his announcement of the fundamental relations between light and magnetism, his first general theory of electricity as a function of interparticulate strain, and his last series of researches on magnetism, containing the germ of the modern field theory, in which Faraday rejected his earlier model of the transmission of magnetic energy in favor of one locating the manifestation of magnetic energy in the field surrounding the magnet. Our set includes Faraday&#39;s 30th and final series of the "Experimental researches," published in 1856 and not included in the book-form edition (1839-55) or in the collected papers, like ours, cited as no. 64 in Dibner&#39;s Heralds of Science; this 30th series contains Faraday&#39;s papers on "Constancy of differential magnecrystallic force in different media" (no. 38), "Action of heat on magnecrystals" (no. 39), and "Effect of heat upon the absolute magnetic force of bodies" (no. 40).

        Autograph 'Proposal for an Alteration in the Introductory Rule of the Unitarian Association', in a letter to Watson.

      18 May ; Great Yarmouth. 1832 - Small folio, 1 p. Twenty-seven lines of text. Clear and complete. Good, on lightly-aged and worn paper, with thin strip from previous mounting adhering at head of reverse, which, with two small red wax seals and two postmarks, is addressed to 'John Watson Esqr. | No. 55 & 56 | Near St. Andrew's Ch. | Holborn Hill | London'. The text is entirely devoted to the subject under the heading. In a neat exposition of his position, Alexander proposes and defends three changes. The substitution of 'promulgation' for 'promotion' would, 'as our worthy friend Dr. Channing probably would say', have 'a more quickening effect'. The greater part of the document relates to the substitution of 'Christian Unitarianism' for 'Unitarian Christianity'. (According to his obituary in 'The Christian Reformer', Alexander 'distributed 20,000 copies of a little tract called "Christian Unitarianism"'.)

        Humanity to honey bees; or practical directions for the management of honey bees upon an improved and humane plan, by which the lives of bees may be preserved, and adundance of honey of a superior quality may be obtained

      Wisbech: H. and J. Leach, 1832. Wisbech: H. and J. Leach, 1832. First Edition. Boards. Very good. First Edition. Boards. 8vo (200 × 130 mm), pp. xxiii, [3], 240, [2, plus advertisement slip]; folding engraved frontispiece and 12 further engravings; bookplate of Pamela Lister to the front pastedown; very good in original blue sugar-paper boards with original title label to a later paper spine. First edition of this rare work promoting the &#8216;humane'; treatment of honey bees.From an uneducated background as a draper';s assistant, Nutt claimed to have invented his collateral hive before ever reading a book on bees. &#8216;Collateral boxes had been previously described by S. White (1756), and W. Dyer (1781)';; Nutt';s other great innovation was in his use of a thermometer, &#8216;probably among the first'; to use one in his hives. (British Bee Books, p. 118).Nutt's book ran to several later editions. This first edition is scarce, however, since the list of subscribers printed after the prelims accounts for only 232 copies; it is likely, therefore, only 300 copies were printed in this edition.British Bee Books, 215.

The album was typically broken up with the prints sold individually and complete copies have become enormously rare.Impish devils dance, make merry, kidnap young maidens, engage in scatological activities, make mischief upon men and women. and generally have a hell of a time as rascals frolicking in diabolical fun. It is the most famous of all works, paint or print, by Le Poitevin, whose "Devilries" established a genre in the wake of the Romantic school&#39;s Mephistopheles and Faust, from scenes to fright to scenes that, as here, delight with lively charm. Le Poitevin&#39;s devilries with their light, devilish humor became extremely popular with other artists, such as Michael Delaporte and Bayalos.Le Poitevin (1806-1870) was a French painter and lithographer. As a painter, he specialized in marine art , as a lithographer he is best-known today for Devilries. He was a contributor to The Journal of Painters and Charles Philpon&#39;s La Caricature. He studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, a pupil of Louis Hersent and Xavier Leprince. Very popular in his time, he exhibited at the Salon from 1831 until his death in 1870 ."Tout autre est Eugène Le Poitevin, le peintre de marines, qui popularise un genre bien différent mais dont le retentissement ne fut pas moins grand. Procédant en droite ligne du Méphistophélès de Faust et des tendances au bizarre de l&#146;école romantique, les diableries de cet artiste vinrent jeter une note pittoresque et amusante au milieu des estampes sans couleur du consciencieux lithographe. Pendant un temps ce ne furent plus que diables et diableries, diables souvent érotiques, diableries plus ou moins légères. Les Diables, Petits sujets de diables, Bizarreries diaboliques, Encore des Diableries; c&#146;est sous ces titres que se répandaient partout les albums à couverture brune de Le Poitevin qu&#146;imitèrent bientôt de Bayalos avec ses Diablotins et Michel Delaporte avec ses Récréations diabolico-fantasmagoriques. Diables blancs et diables noirs suivis de diables rouges et de diables verts. Le diable se glissait partout, commettant mille incongruités, relevait les robes des femmes, les déshabillait comme par enchantement, les mettait en cage, les tirait par les cheveux, ayant toujours à son service un nombre incalculable de petits diablotins courant à tort et à travers les feuilles. Il y eut une telle invasion des sujets de messire Satan que ce ne fut plus, comme dans la chanson, « Vive la lithographie, » mais « au diable, les polissonnes" (Grand-Carteret, Les Moeurs et la caricature en France, p. 174).Le Poitevin (1806-1870) was a French painter and lithographer. As a painter, he specialized in marine art , as a lithographer he is best-known today for Devilries. He was a contributor to The Journal of Painters and Charles Philpon&#39;s La Caricature.

        The Heidenmauer; or The Benedictines

      London - Henry Coleburn andRichard Bentley, 1832. London - Henry Coleburn andRichard Bentley, 1832 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. The Heidenmauer; or The BenedictinesA Story of the Rhineis a novel by James Fenimore Cooper, first published in 1832. First UK edition. In three volumes complete. The novel is a socio-political novel set in 16th century Germany that focuses on the competition between various socio-political classes and the tension caused by the Reformation. The Heidenmauer is Cooper&#39;s second novel in what one critic would call his European Trilogy, following The Bravo and preceding The Headsman. Like the other novels set in Europe, The Heidenmauer is intent on showing the darker side of European institutions in favour of an American perspective. James Fenimore Cooper (1789- 1851) was a prolific and popular American writer of the early 19th century. His historical romances of frontier and Indian life in the early American days created a unique form of American literature. Cooper is best remembered as a novelist who wrote numerous sea-stories and the historical novels known as the Leatherstocking Tales. Among naval historians his works on early U. S. naval history have been widely received but were sometimes criticised by Cooper&#39;s contemporaries. Among his most famous works is the Romantic novel The Last of the Mohicans, often regarded as his masterpiece. With a booksellers&#39; label to front pastedown of volume one. Condition: In halfleather bindings with marbled paper boards. Externally, sound but with some wear to extremities and slight rubbing andmarks to boards, minor loss to spine labels, lifting slightly.

Heber&#39;s hymns and other poems have style, pathos and soaring aspiration. Felicia Hemans (25 September 1793- 16 May 1835) was an English poet. Hemans&#39; works appeared in nineteen individual books during her lifetime. After her death in 1835 they were republished widely, usually as collections of individual lyrics and not the longer, annotated works and integrated series that made up her books. For surviving women poets,she was a valued model; and for male poets including Tennyson and Longfellow, an influence less acknowledged. To many readers she offered a woman&#39;s voice confiding a woman&#39;s trials; to others a lyricism apparently consonant with Victorian chauvinism and sentimentality. Robert Pollok (c. 1798- 15 September 1827) was a Scottish poet best known for The Course of Time, published the year of his death, a ten-book poem in blank verse, first published in 1827. The first edition of the poem sold 12,000 copies, and by its fourth edition it had sold 78,000 copies and become well known even in North America. Condition: In a cloth binding. Externally, generally sound but with bumping and wear to extremities. With staining and marks to boards and with facing to spine and marginally to boards. Hinges slightly strained. Internally, generally firmly bound and foxed throughout. With very slight loss and closed tear to front blank. Overall: GOOD ONLY.
