        Vom Kriege. Hinterlassenes Werk des

      Berlin: Ferdinand Dümmler, 1832-3 - 3 volumes octavo (200 × 119 mm). Contemporary brown skiver-back and tips on streaked paper boards, green morocco labels to spines, edges stained green. Externally somewhat rubbed and a little soiled, some judicious restoration to the spines and cornerstan-burn at the corners of the endpapers, pale toning to the text-blocks, but overall very good. First edition. Clausewitz's works were published posthumously, edited by his widow, and these, the first three volumes of ten, contain the first appearance of Vom Kriege (On War), his dialectical analysis of the function of war in human society. "The book is less a manual of strategy and tactics, although it incorporates the lessons learned from the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, than a general enquiry into the interdependence of politics and warfare and the principles governing either or both. published by his widow [it] won immediate recognition as the most profound exposition of the philosophy of war - a place that has never been disputed" (PMM). Carter and Muir's estimation in 1967 of the continuing relevance of Clausewitz's work is confirmed by Daniel Moran in his article on Clausewitz in The Oxford Companion to Military History (2001) where it is described as "the most important general treatment of its subject yet produced". This set with the small contemporary ink-stamps, ownership inscriptions, and press-marks of the Bibliothek der leichten Infanterie Halb-Brigade to the front endpapers, and to the title pages together with a slightly later ink-stamp of the Erstes Königlich Sächsisches Jäger-Bataillon. PMM 297. [Attributes: First Edition]

        More's Navarino Auricula [Pl. 58]

      London, Published by James Ridgeway 1832 - Robert Sweet (1783-1835) (editor), Edwin Dalton Smith (1823-1846) after J. Watts (engraver). A lovely copperplate engraving with exquisite original hand-color, in near fine condition and with accompanying text sheet from 'The Florist's Guide and Cultivator's Directory or drawings of the choicest flowers Cultivated by Florists.' Published in London by James Ridgway, 1827-1832. Dimensions: 6 2/5"x 9 3/5" (Sheet Size), 5" x 8" (Plate Mark). Flower gardens, grown and perfected for displays and competitions, were hugely popular in seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth century Britain. Robert Sweet, for which the botanical genus 'Sweetia' is named, initially published his Florist's Guide and Cultivator's Directory of ornamental garden flowers illustrated as botanical studies as a periodical, a common practice for botanical collections in the 19th century. Sweet, a skilled and highly sought after gardener to wealthy landowners, was elected a fellow of the Linnean Society in 1812. Edwin Dalton Smith, a British botanical artist at the top of his field, as evident in this splendid engraving, was described by the botanical historian Wilfred Blunt, a "considerable artist of small-scale work who produced finely executed paintings with jewel-like color." ***If you frame up this item with Arader Galleries you can take a 50% discount off the listed price of this work of art.*** Cataloged by Josephine Arader.

        Manuscript collection of compositions on a variety of subjects

      [Pembroke, CT, 1832. 8vo, pp. [2], 100, [2]; 6 leaves of mounted dried flowers (mostly perished) at back; 1 extra bifolium laid in containing three pages of "wandering thoughts"; contemporary quarter red calf over marbled paper-covered boards; upper joint cracked at the top, boards rubbed and bumped; very good. A manuscript notebook full of pontification on a variety of subjects, some rather mundane ("Friendship is an acquisition which is very necessary and needful in life"), and some on more colorful topics: the autobiography of a hat, Yankee peddlers ("Among the variety of imposters which we daily meet the yanks peddlers must be the first which comes under our observation"); slavery; the plight of the Indians; fashion ("Where the old fashioned knee-buckles have been turned into some article of fancy; the sheepskin pantaloons and horn buttons have given place to morocco shoes and shell combs"). Thirty-three entries are provided in all. One describes the town of Pembroke, CT; there seems little otherwise to indicate where these essays were published.

        Interessante assieme di 4 lettere a.f. indirizzate al Maresciallo Ignazio Thaon di Revel, 1832-1833

      1832. Gruppo di quattro lettere in-8 autografe firmate (C. Albert), scritte in francese, secondo l'uso della casa di Savoia, indirizzate da Carlo Alberto (re di Sardegna dal 1831) al Maresciallo Ignazio Thaon di Revel (1760-1835), dell'illustre famiglia di militari sabaudi: ''A Son Excellence Le Maréchal Compte de Rével'', come si legge sulla busta con sigillo in ceralacca integro che accompagna una delle missive. Comprende: due brevi messaggi di quattro righe, di cui uno datato 19 juin 1832, firmati ''Votre affetionné ami C. Alert''; due lettere più lunghe (1 p. in-8 ciascuna), datate 9 juillet e 13 juillet 1833, di particolare interesse per il contenuto. Riguardano la disciplina dell'Esercito in un momento molto diffilcile: gruppi di rivoltosi di matrice repubblicana e mazziniana (come la Giovine Italia e i Federati) stavano diffondendo opuscoli propagandistici; il sovrano afferma che qualcuno di questi presunti patrioti in realtà ''..fait l'espion et le ruffian des Ministres étrangeres, et qu'il affecte des ideés d'égalité''. CARLO ALBERTO (Torino 1798-Oporto 1849), Principe di Carignano, nel 1821 reggente di Carlo Felice e dal 1831 Re di Sardegna; nel 1848 concesse lo Statuto e l'anno seguente abdicò a favore del figlio Vittorio Eanuele II.

        Osbeckia angustifolia

      London, Paris & Strassburg 1832 - Hand-coloured lithograph by M. Gauci, printed by Engelmann & Co. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling. A finely detailed plate from Wallich's 'Plantae Asiaticae Rariores', a rare scholarly work on the most exotic trees and plants from the tropical zone. A renowned Danish physician, botanist, and plant explorer, Nathaniel Wallich travelled to Nepal, Western Hindostan, Ava and Lower Burma in search of exotic flora and fauna and was responsible for introducing numerous Himalayan plant specimens to Europe. Ardently interested in the indigenous plants of India, where he was appointed Superintendent of the East India Company's Botanical Garden at Calcultta in 1817, he began vigorously collecting and cataloguing specimens and helped found the Oriental Museum of the Asiatic Society (later called the Indian Museum in Calcultta). Wallich published Plantae Asiaticae Rariories between 1829 and 1832, which was undertaken with the enthusiastic patronage of the East India Company. For this work, he drew on both specimens collected during his own trips and those supplied by contacts like Sir Stamford Raffles, and he employed artists including Vishnupersaud (or Vishnu Prasad), who Blunt considered the 'most talented of the native Indian artists'. Maxim Gauci, perhaps the greatest of the early lithographers of botanical subjects, was responsible for translating the drawings onto stone. Cf. Dunthorne 326; cf. Great Flower Books (1990), p.149; cf. Nissen BBI 2099; cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 1383.

The following page, the Preface (p. i), has the lower corner chipped. These lower corners are chipped or bent up to about p. 30 but after the Preface there are no words lost. The dictionary itself is complete and reasonably clean, with minimal occasional foxing and light browning to the edges. Sold as is; very fragile. 536 pp.. Hard Cover.

        PROCLAMATION, BY ANDREW JACKSON, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.

      Washington. Dec. 10, 1832. - Broadside, printed on silk in six columns, within an ornamental border. In a wood frame. Silk slightly frayed at head and foot, occasional foxing, almost entirely in margins. Very good. This proclamation is President Jackson's famous response to the nullification ordinance recently passed by the state of South Carolina. It prints extracts from the Ordinance, followed by Jackson's angry answer in which he denounces nullification as rebellion and treason, warning the citizens of South Carolina the he will use every power to enforce the laws. Sabin, who erroneously gives a date of 1833, notes that "a few copies were printed on satin, with ornamental border," such as the present copy. There was also a Hartford printing on silk, in six columns, and a Boston printing on silk, in seven columns, and at least two New York printings on silk. SABIN 35352. STREETER SALE 1738 (ref).

        Amsterdam - opening Oosterdoksluis, 1832.

      ?Plegtige opening der Groote Sluis van het Ooster-dok voor Amsterdam, waardoor het eerste Korvetschip, gebouwd ter loffelijker nagedachtenis van den te vroeg gesneuvelden jeugdigen held, Jan Carel Josephus van Speyk, is gevoerd, op Zaturdag den 5den Mei 1832??.Aquatint vervaardigd door W.H. Hoogkamer naar een ontwerp van Hendrik Vettewinkel, uitgegeven door G. Portielje. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (afbeelding) 36,7 x 49 cm.Door aanslibbing van het IJ werd de Amsterdamse haven steeds minder goed bereikbaar. Tussen 1817-1824 werd het Groot Noordhollandsch Kanaal aangelegd. Om dat beter te laten functioneren moest er een dam in de mond van het IJ gelegd worden, zeer tegen de zin van Amsterdam. Als lapmiddel om het havenfront open te laten, werd in de afdamming in 1832 het Oosterdok en in 1834 het Westerdok middels sluizen opengesteld.Hier zien we de opening van de sluizen tussen Oosterdok en IJ door het korvet Van Speijk. Op de achtergrond de Buitenkant (Prins Hendrikkade) en Montelbaanstoren.Het Oosterdok omvatte zowel de vroegere Admiraliteitswerf als de uitgebreide VOC-werven. Die laatste lagen er werkeloos bij sinds het opheffing van de VOC. In 1828 was het bedrijfsterrein in gebruik genomen door de "Fabriek van Stoom- en Andere Werktuigen". De Admiraliteitswerf, tot 1795 een Amsterdamse aangelegenheid, werd een werf van de landelijke marine en na 1813 Rijkswerf. Na het opheffen van de werf in 1915 werd het complex als opleidings- en keuringscentrum gebruikt en voor personeelshuisvesting. We kennen het dan als het Marine Etablissement.Korvet Van Speijk, onder bevel van Kapitein ter Zee W.G. Roepel (equipagemeester van 's Rijks Marinewerf), passeerde als eerste schip de grote sluis van het juist voltooide Oosterdok. De doorschutting werd door vijf leden van het Koninklijk Huis en vele genodigden bijgewoond. KTZ Roepel verloor op die dag een epaulet. De Commissie tot de IJ- en Havenwerken besloot hem als beloning een paar epauletten aan te bieden.Zr. Ms. Van Speijk (ex Argo) was een kuilkorvet bewapend met 28 stukken. Het diende in 1834-1837 in Nederlands Oost-Indi?. In 1837 werd het overgedragen aan de Koloniale Marine en deed dienst als wachtschip te Soerabaja.In 1907 werd besloten de hier feestelijk geopende sluizen te verruimen omdat moderne schepen er niet meer doorheen pasten.Prijs: ?975,- (excl. lijst).

        Atlas to Marshall's Life of Washington

      Philadelphia: J. Crissy, 1832. Second Edition. Hardcover. Good. 8vo. Engraved title page and 10 hand colored American Revolution War battle maps. Atlas issued with the publication of the second edition of Marshall's Life of Washington (2 volumes). Restored. Original tan paper covered boards with black lettered title and black decorated borders on green paper label pasted down on front board. New brown cloth spine. Front and rear hinges repaired. Paper on boards is rubbed with light damp stains. Light toning to maps. The front paste down is inscribed by A. B. Scott 2 " Lt. 13 " Inf. From the "Newell History" (Alec Newell): Major Albert Blackstone Scott (1858-1906) Major Albert B. Scott was born at the arsenal, in San Antonio, Texas, on October 29, 1858, in the quarters of his grandfather, General R. H. K. Whitely, U. S. Army, who was at that time in command at that post. Major Scott's father was Judge Scott, of New Orleans. He was reared by his grandfather in the State of Pennsylvania and was appointed to the Military Academy at West Point in 1876 by General U. S. Grant and graduated from said Academy in 1880. He was assigned to the Thirteenth U. S. Infantry, then stationed at Fort Wingate, New Mexico, and served with this regiment until his retirement. He spent eight years on the frontier.. From 1888 to 1891 he was Commandant of Cadets at the Maryland Agricultural College, and from 1891 to 1894 was with his regiment in Oklahoma. In 1894 he was detailed as Commandant of Cadets at the Georgia Military College at Milledgeville, Georgia, and served in this position until 1898. when his regiment was ordered to Cuba to take part in the Spanish-American War. In the battle at San Juan Hill, on July 1, 1898, Major Scott, then Captain, was severely wounded, a bullet entering the neck, just in front of the angle of the jaw, in the right side, passed entirely through the neck and came out on the left side of the spine, breaking the tip off of the fifth vertebrae. He was reported killed, and it was several days before his friends and relatives knew to the contrary. He was brought to the United States, and for a year he lay on his bed unable to speak aloud. At the end of a year he rallied somewhat and was able to move about with the aid of a crutch. His right arm was entirely paralyzed and his right leg partially so. He was unable to walk without assistance, a body servant being always within arm's length. In 1900 Major Scott was ordered to Fort McPherson, Georgia, for light duty, and while serving with the greatest difficulty and always suffering severe pain, he took great pride in performing all the duties that came to him. In 1902 Major Scott, at the request of the Military College and the citizens of Milledgeville, Georgia, was detailed for the second time as Commandant of Cadets of the Georgia Military College, and served until he was relieved in 1905 He was promoted to Major and retired July 28, 1905. Major Scott was admitted to the bar at Milledgeville, Georgia, at the July term, 1895, of Baldwin Superior Court. It was his ambition, after retirement, to enter into the active practice of law, and he did open an office in Milledgeville, Georgia. He was terribly handicapped in following any profession, owing to the awful wound received in the Spanish American War, and which rendered him almost helpless, but whenever his physical condition would permit he was a regular attendant upon the Courts of Baldwin County until his death. Major Scott died in Milledgeville, Georgia, January 10th, 1906, from the effects of the wound received at San Juan Hill. He is buried in the cemetery at Milledgeville, Georgia.

Davon 8 Porträts, 8 Städteansichten, 6 Bauwerke. Die restlichen Tafeln aus dem technisch-naturwissenschaftlichen Bereich. Siehe Bilder 7-19. Wie auch den 20 Originalbildern zu entnehmen, ist die Rückenansicht sehr harmonisch & einheitlich. Rücken zudem überdurchschnittlich erhalten; auch keine der häufig anzutreffenden Fehlstellen, Beschädigungen oder Einrisse. Der Buchschnitt ist noch wunderschön, ebenso die Buchdeckel. Die Kanten & Ecken berieben bzw. bestoßen. Kein unangenehmer Geruch. Keine fehlenden, losen oder eingerissenen Seiten. Abklatsch der Ecken; Seiten & Karten teils stärker fleckig oder gebräunt. Vorsatzpapier am vorderen Innengelenk eingerissen; alles jedoch noch stabil; Buchblock fest (s. auch Bild 20). Die Kollation der Abbildungen auf Vollständigkeit gestaltet sich schwierig, da diese unsystematisch nummeriert sind, hierzu kein Verzeichnis in den Bänden existiert & auch in der einschlägigen Literatur keine Angaben diesbzgl. aufzufinden sind. In den letzten Jahren ist uns vom Brüggemannschen Conversations-Lexikon nur das Exemplar aus der Sammlung Seemann bekannt. Im Vergleich zu diesem sind hier acht Tafeln mehr eingebunden. Diese seltene Erstausgabe dürfte in dieser Vollständigkeit der Tafeln & in dieser Erhaltung heute kaum noch erhältlich sein. 15000 Gramm. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Rückentiteln u. dreiseitig gespränkeltem Farbschnitt. Erstausgabe. - „Dieses Werk mit seinen tausend Seiten nimmt unter den militärischen Schriften aller Zeiten und Völker einen einzigartigen Platz ein. Obwohl in ihm die Erkenntnisse aus den Kriegen Napoleons und denen der Französischen Revolution verwertet wurden, ist es doch weniger ein Handbuch für Strategie und Taktik als eine umfassende Untersuchung über die Grundprinzipien des Krieges. Der Krieg, so behauptete Clausewitz, müsse immer als politisches Instrument betrachtet werden; denn, so lautet sein berühmtester Aphorismus: ‚Krieg ist die fortgesetzte Staatspolitik mit anderen Mitteln‘. Er weist die Ansicht vom schädlichen Einfluß der Politik auf die Kriegsführung zurück, da Vor- oder Nachteile des Einflusses ganz bei der Politik lägen. Ist die Politik gut, so kann sie sich auf die Kriegsführung nur vorteilhaft auswirken: die Siege der Französischen Revolution über zwanzig Jahre hinweg ergaben sich hauptsächlich aus der fehlerhaften Politik der gegnerischen Regierungen. Seine Grundkonzeption, daß militärische Entscheidungen politischen Erwägungen immer untergeordnet sein müssen, unterstützt er durch seine nachdrückliche Betonung von Moral und Selbstzucht als den entscheidenden Faktoren im Kriege [...] Nachdem er als Generalstabschef von Gneisenau wie dieser im polnischen Feldzug an der Cholera gestorben war, wurde das Buch von seiner Frau als Kernstück seiner ‚Hinterlassenen Werke über Krieg und Kriegführung’ [...] veröffentlicht. Es fand sofort Anerkennung als eine der tiefsten Ausführungen über die Philosophie des Krieges - ein Rang, der ihm nie streitig gemacht wurde“ (Carter/Muir S. 544f.). - Einbände leicht berieben bzw. bestoßen. Vorsatzbll. m. Besitzvermerk. Titelbll. m. Namensstempel. Vereinzelt Anstreichungen bzw. schwach wasserrandig.

From the "Newell History" (Alec Newell):Major Albert Blackstone Scott (1858-1906) Major Albert B. Scott was born at the arsenal, in San Antonio, Texas, on October 29, 1858, in the quarters of his grandfather, General R. H. K. Whitely, U. S. Army, who was at that time in command at that post. Major Scott's father was Judge Scott, of New Orleans. He was reared by his grandfather in the State of Pennsylvania and was appointed to the Military Academy at West Point in 1876 by General U. S. Grant and graduated from said Academy in 1880. He was assigned to the Thirteenth U. S. Infantry, then stationed at Fort Wingate, New Mexico, and served with this regiment until his retirement. He spent eight years on the frontier. From 1888 to 1891 he was Commandant of Cadets at the Maryland Agricultural College, and from 1891 to 1894 was with his regiment in Oklahoma. In 1894 he was detailed as Commandant of Cadets at the Georgia Military College at Milledgeville, Georgia, and served in this position until 1898. when his regiment was ordered to Cuba to take part in the Spanish-American War. In the battle at San Juan Hill, on July 1, 1898, Major Scott, then Captain, was severely wounded, a bullet entering the neck, just in front of the angle of the jaw, in the right side, passed entirely through the neck and came out on the left side of the spine, breaking the tip off of the fifth vertebrae. He was reported killed, and it was several days before his friends and relatives knew to the contrary. He was brought to the United States, and for a year he lay on his bed unable to speak aloud. At the end of a year he rallied somewhat and was able to move about with the aid of a crutch. His right arm was entirely paralyzed and his right leg partially so. He was unable to walk without assistance, a body servant being always within arm's length. In 1900 Major Scott was ordered to Fort McPherson, Georgia, for light duty, and while serving with the greatest difficulty and always suffering severe pain, he took great pride in performing all the duties that came to him. In 1902 Major Scott, at the request of the Military College and the citizens of Milledgeville, Georgia, was detailed for the second time as Commandant of Cadets of the Georgia Military College, and served until he was relieved in 1905 He was promoted to Major and retired July 28, 1905. Major Scott was admitted to the bar at Milledgeville, Georgia, at the July term, 1895, of Baldwin Superior Court. It was his ambition, after retirement, to enter into the active practice of law, and he did open an office in Milledgeville, Georgia. He was terribly handicapped in following any profession, owing to the awful wound received in the Spanish American War, and which rendered him almost helpless, but whenever his physical condition would permit he was a regular attendant upon the Courts of Baldwin County until his death. Major Scott died in Milledgeville, Georgia, January 10th, 1906, from the effects of the wound received at San Juan Hill. He is buried in the cemetery at Milledgeville, Georgia.

        Osbeckia angustifolia

      London, Paris & Strassburg, 1832. Hand-coloured lithograph by M. Gauci, printed by Engelmann & Co. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling. A finely detailed plate from Wallich's 'Plantae Asiaticae Rariores', a rare scholarly work on the most exotic trees and plants from the tropical zone.A renowned Danish physician, botanist, and plant explorer, Nathaniel Wallich travelled to Nepal, Western Hindostan, Ava and Lower Burma in search of exotic flora and fauna and was responsible for introducing numerous Himalayan plant specimens to Europe. Ardently interested in the indigenous plants of India, where he was appointed Superintendent of the East India Company's Botanical Garden at Calcultta in 1817, he began vigorously collecting and cataloguing specimens and helped found the Oriental Museum of the Asiatic Society (later called the Indian Museum in Calcultta).Wallich published Plantae Asiaticae Rariories between 1829 and 1832, which was undertaken with the enthusiastic patronage of the East India Company. For this work, he drew on both specimens collected during his own trips and those supplied by contacts like Sir Stamford Raffles, and he employed artists including Vishnupersaud (or Vishnu Prasad), who Blunt considered the 'most talented of the native Indian artists'. Maxim Gauci, perhaps the greatest of the early lithographers of botanical subjects, was responsible for translating the drawings onto stone.Cf. Dunthorne 326; cf. Great Flower Books (1990), p.149; cf. Nissen BBI 2099; cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 1383.

        Une Journee du Jeune Exile

      1832. First Edition . D'HARDIVILLER, Charles-Achille. Une Journée de Jeune Exilé Recueil de Dessins Représentant les Etudes et les Divers Exercices du Duc de Bordeaux. Paris: A. Fonrouge, 1832. Slim folio (10-1/2 by 13-1/2 inches), full gilt-stamped vellum, gilt fleurs-de-lis and coat of arms of the Comte de Puiseux; original wrappers bound in. $2500.First edition of this work supporting the recognition of the 12-year-old exiled Duke of Bordeaux, Henri, as King Henry V of France, written by his drawing master, Jacques-Louis David's student Charles-Achille d'Hardiviller, with 12 full-page hors-texte lithographs by him featuring the young duke at work and play, handsomely bound in vellum by Bonnay and bearing the gilt coat of arms and armorial bookplate of the Comte de Puiseux.A sentimental look at Henri, the 12-year-old exiled Duke of Bordeaux, through the eyes of d'Hardiviller, his drawing master. D'Hardiviller joined Henri in exile at Holyrood Castle in Scotland in 1830. Henri was the son of the Duc de Berry, who was assassinated in 1820. The legitimists attempted to situate him as Henry V, King of France, but the 1830 revolution forced Henri into exile, permanently barring him from ascending the throne. D'Hardiviller, who had studied under the famous artist David, was a staunch legitimist and, in this work, uses his art in an attempt to win sympathy for the legitimist cause. The lithographs depict the daily activities of Henri, from fencing to pistol practice to lessons to riding. In the plate of Henri's drawing lesson, he is shown with d'Hardiviller. The plates frequently depict the picturesque grounds of Holyrood Castle. Armorial bookplate of the Comte de Puiseux, bearing his coat of arms on the vellum binding in gilt and gilt fleurs-de-lis on all corners (reflecting his French royal status).Expert paper repairs to corner of title page and rear wrapper, very faint scattered foxing and soiling to interior, minor soiling to binding. A near-fine copy with an exceptional provenance.
