        Livre des pélerins polonais. Traduit du polonais d'Adam Mickiewicz par le Comte Ch. de Montalbert; Suivi d'un Hymne a la Pologne par F. de la Mennais.

      Renduel, Paris, 1833. LXXV, 176 p., 14 cm, m.p. muta.\r\r Esemplare medio con qualche fioritura, qualche macchiolina e piccoli difetti interni, mancanza dell'occhietto (se in origine presente). Adam Bernard Mickiewicz (Zaosie, 24 dicembre 1798 - Costantinopoli, 26 novembre 1855) è stato un poeta e scrittore polacco, incluso fra i trzej wieszcze (i Tre Bardi), ovvero i tre maggiori letterati del Romanticismo polacco insieme a Juliusz Słowacki e Zygmunt Krasiński. Figura dominante nella storia letteraria e spirituale della Polonia, ammirato e amato da Mazzini "come la natura poetica più potente del secolo", M. ci appare oggi quale l'interprete più profondo della Polonia anteriore alla catastrofe e nello stesso tempo come uno dei più sicuri forgiatori della rinascita polacca. Egli deve questa sua posizione preminente non solo alla sua attività poetica e patriottica, ma anche alla granitica saldezza della sua personalità al cui ascendente non si sono sottratti quanti, Polacchi o stranieri, hanno avuto con lui consuetudine di vita o comunanza d'ideali. Il 31 luglio 1832 Mickiewicz si trasferì a Parigi, accompagnato da un ex Filomata, il futuro geologo Ignacy Domeyko. Nella Ville Lumière il poeta venne a contatto con l'élite polacca emigrata; sotto questi influssi, scrisse articoli per il Pielgrzym Polski (LA PRESENTE OPERA NELLA RARISSIMA EDIZIONE ORIGINALE). Charles Forbes René de Montalembert (15 Aprile 1810, Londra - 13 Marzo 1870, Parigi) uomo politico e pubblicista, nato a Londra il 15 aprile 1810, morto a Parigi il 13 marzo 1870. Educato in Inghilterra dal nonno materno James Forbes, poi, al ritorno della famiglia in Francia, nel Liceo Borbone (1819), indi (1826-28) nel collegio Sainte-Barbe, si rivelò fin da allora fervente cristiano. Dopo brevi dimore a Stoccolma (1829) e in Irlanda (1830), dove aderì alla campagna di D. O' Connell, tornò a Parigi, entrando (ultimi mesi del 1830), nella redazione de L'Avenir, allora fondato da F. de Lamennais, in collaborazione con il quale e con D. Lacordaire, sostenne una pugnace campagna mirante all'instaurazione di una nuova era di libertà e di giustizia fondate sulla religione cattolica e, con ciò, tra altri capisaldi, a un ammodernamento, in senso liberale, della Chiesa, alla sua netta separazione dallo stato, all'emancipazione dei popoli oppressi, e ch'è più, a una compiuta libertà d'insegnamento e di stampa. Per avere le proteste di parecchi vescovi fatto sospendere L'Avenir, si recò con il Lamennais e con il Lacordaire, presso Gregorio XVI: viaggio che, pur dandogli agio di conoscere parecchie città italiane e parecchi letterati e patrioti della penisola, non impedì la condanna del giornale (enciclica Mirari vos del 1832). Sottomessosi, a differenza del Lamennais, al responso papale, s'occupò a Parigi (1833) d'arte cristiana - donde i suoi parecchi scritti (p. es. una lettera a Victor Hugo sul Vandalisme en France, inserita nella Revue des deux mondes del 10 marzo 1833), in difesa della scultura e architettura medievali - e di "polonismo" - donde i suoi rapporti col poeta ed esule Adam Mickiewicz, che aiutò a fondare la rivista Le Polonais e di cui tradusse, con una sua prefazione, il Livre des pélerins polonais, anch'esso, poi, condannato da Gregorio XVI.

      35 - London - Henry Colburn, 1833 Book. VERY GOOD INDEED. Hardcover. An uncommon four volume set of this work on genealogy.

Each volume contains a frontispiece plate, as well as vignettes throughout, with the bookplate of E. H. Greenby to each pastedown. Condition: In half-calf binding with gilt detailing and paper-covered boards. Externally quite smart, there is minor wear to the extremities, with some strain to hinges.

Januar 1867: Ich meine manchmal, wenn man [auf den Schulen] das Studium der alten Sprachen beschränkte und dafür die modernen wissenschaftlich betriebe, wenn man die deutsche und französische Grammatik, die deutschen, englischen und französischen Schriftsteller vornähme und erklärte es käme mehr dabei heraus.

Quarto, period-style full maroon pebbled morocco gilt, raised bands. $3000.First edition of medievalist ShawÂ’s richly illustrated work discussing the development of the art of illumination and depicting ornamentation from some of the most striking illuminated manuscripts from the 6th through the 17th centuries, with engraved extra title page and 59 splendid, vividly hand-colored plates.“ShawÂ’s career was devoted to rescuing the English past through a long series of imposing books on architecture and art, published chiefly by William Pickering at the Chiswick Press.

        LIGHTHOUSES, THE STEVENSONS, & OTHER LIFE SAVING DEVICES AT SEA, 1821-1893. An interesting collection of 41 contemporary 19th century publications, featuring several pieces by and about the ?Lighthouse Stevensons?, a number of scientific improvements and creations for lighting and lenses, together with incredible and intriguing life saving devices for shipwrecked sailors

      Various Publishers. First Edition. Disbound. Very Good Condition. This material benefits from the immediacy and contemporary nature of the moment it is written in, and much of it has been ignored or at best skimmed over in the standard studies, and it provides the opportunity for much further study and fresh commentary on safety at sea. This compelling selection of articles, all written in English, are taken from important 19th century journals. Key pieces include a very important piece by David Brewster on the British Lighthouse System (1833), an interesting detailed discussion on the Parliamentary inquiry into Lighthouses (1835) along with a responses by Alan Stevenson (1835) refuting some of the comments made. There are good illustrated pieces from the Encyclopedia Britannica (1824) on the Bell Rock Lighthouse, and the Encyclopedia Metropolitana (1845) regarding the Eddystone Lighthouse. Francis Conder contributes an extended item on the Engineers and construction of Eddystone and Skerryvore (1880), whilst there are numerous articles with detailed improvements to the mechanisms, lenses, and lighting from amongst others John Wigham (1886), William Swan (1850), and Thomas Stevenson (1871) and Alan Stevenson (1835). J.R. Leifchild summaries numerous official documents on Wrecks, Life Boats and Lighthouses (1862) and there are various articles on Shipwrecks (J.R.McCulloch, 1834), Life Boats (Andrew Henderson, 1857), and Percussion Lights (Cpt. Leach, 1857), amongst others. All published between 1821 and 1893. The majority of the articles are octavo in size, and quite a few, particularly regarding shipwrecks and life saving devices have illustrations, chiefly woodcuts. There are a couple of quartos, plus an engraving, and two small folio Acts of Parliament, and two folio Chambers' Edinburgh Journals. The entire collection runs to over 400 pages. Note; this is a collection of articles all separated and disbound from other volumes, not offprints or reprints. Overall condition is very good, with bright clean, easily readable pages. There is some browning here and there to a few pages, but not many. Each article is contained in a clear protective sleeve for safe handling, and the whole collection is housed in a box file for smart presentation and ease of shelving. A full list of all the articles contained in this collection is available on request. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Antiquarian & Rare; Collections. .

        CARTA TOPOGRAFICA DEL REGNO LOMBARDO-VENETO. COSTRUTTA SOPRA MISURE ASTRONOMICO-TRIGONOMETRICHE ED INCISA A MILANO NELL'ISTITUTO GEOGRAFICO MILITARE DELL'I.R. STATO MAGGIORE GENERALE AUSTRIACO.

      1833 - 1856, Lombardo Veneto 1833 - Imponente carta murale, stampata su 42 fogli (mm 440x650 cad.) appllicati su tela a stacchi, raffigurante il Regno Lombardo-Veneto. L'opera è divisa in due carte ben distinte, la Lombardia ed il Veneto, che si uniscono perfettamente. Costruita partendo dalle misurazioni servite per la stesura della famosissima carta che segnò l'era moderna della cartografia eseguita dagli Astronomi di Brera. Infatti nel foglio B2 della spiegazione dei segni si legge: "NOTA SULLA COSTRUZIONE DELLA CARTA. Per la costruzione di questa Carta servirono di appoggio i punti trigonometrici ricavati dalla grande triangolazione, che dalla base misurata nelle vicinanze di Somma presso il Fiume Ticino si estende per tutto il Regno, e la cui esattezza è comprovata dal perfetto di lei accordo colle operazioni trigonometriche dei paesi limitrofi. Tali punti furono calcolati in distanze dalla meridiana e perpendicolare della cupola del Duomo di Milano.".

        Biographical Memoir of Daniel Boone, the First Settler of Kentucky: Interspersed with Incidents in the Early Annals of the Country

      N. and G. Guilford and Co., Cincinnati 1833 - 8vo, contemporary cloth, illustrated with frontispiece portrait of Boone, and 9 full page illustrations, 252pp. Binding shows some wear, and book has slight tilt. Frontispiece somewhat faded, the usual foxing, and a little staining. Has been rebacked, and overall is in very good condition. This is a first edition, second issue of Flint’s (1780-1840) popular biography of Boone. This work appeared in some 14th editions, and did much to establish Boone as a frontier legend. Not surprisingly, there is a lot of exaggeration in the work, which is illustrated with several illustrations showing Boone, in a coonskin hat, shooting panthers, fighting bears, and exploring the ‘wild frontier’. In reality, Boone (1734-1820) did live a colorful life, even if he didn’t shoot panthers off the backs of buffaloes. He was an Indian fighter, an explorer, and even fought in the French and Indian War. While Boone will forever be linked with the early settlement of Kentucky, he did live in West Virginia for ten years, and ended up settling in Missouri. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A YANKEE AMONG THE NULLIFIERS, AN AUTO-BIOGRAPHY

      New-York: William Pearson, 1833. Second Edition. Very Good binding. Interestingly, Asa Green "became the first American to apply the term [autobiograph] to a 'narrative of [his] life written by himself,' when he published ... A Yankee Among the Nullifiers, an Auto Biography, under the pseudonym Elnathan Elmwood" [see Arnold Krupat, For Those who Come After: A Study of Native American Autobiography, p. 40]. An uncommon record of contemporary life in Carolina, under the guise of a fictitious account of Yankee Elnathan Elmwood travels to South Carolina where he runs fro Congress; his speeches inspire a group of slaves to lead an uprising. In the publisher's paper covered boards backed in green cloth, with a partial paper label to the spine. Some damping and scattered foxing throughout. (Wright 1068). Very Good binding.

        Toshisen Ehon

      1833. First Edition . TAKAI, Ranzan. Toshisen Ehon. Japan: Shimbei Kobayashi, circa 1833. 35 volumes. Octavo, original patterned rice paper wrappers, bound with silk cord. Housed in custom wooden display box. $7800.Early editions of this beautifully illustrated set of Chinese TÂ’ang poetry with 10 volumes illustrated by Hokusai.Created during a period when Chinese poetry enjoyed great popularity in Japan, this edition of Toshisen features Japanese illustratorsÂ’ re-interpretations of the Chinese illustrations. Some artists deliberately copied the Chinese illustrations of such works, in an effort at faithful reproduction. However, “the greatest of the later Japanese artists who pictorially interpreted such Chinese works as the Suikoden and the Toshisen was Hokusai, but he evolved his own kind of characteristically individual ‘ChinoiserieÂ’, which owed little or nothing to the Ming artists and their Japanese copyists” (Hillier, 87). Hokusai, best known for his woodblock prints, such as the “36 Views of Mt. Fuji” series, was best known in his own time for his expertise in Chinese painting. All 35 volumes, (divided into series of five volumes each) are profusely illustrated, but HokusaiÂ’s 10 volumes are the most famous and sought after—in this set, these are the volumes in the brown wrappers and the gray wrappers. Woodblocks cut by Sugita Kinnosuke. With all colophons. Illustrations crisp and fine. Original wrappers and title labels fine. A lovely set in custom wooden box.

Lettres adressées à son frère par Champollion le jeune, durant son voyage Égypte et en Nubie, dans les années 1828 et 1829, pour une mission scientifique avec son collaborateur et ami Ippolito Rosellini. Elles donnent ses impressions sur le vif, au jour le jour. On sait que ce voyage, qui lui permit de vérifier que son système hiéroglyphique fonctionnait, lui fut pourtant fatal. Ayant contracté une tuberculose et une bilharziose, il rentra en France pour se faire soigner mais mourut en 1832, à l'âge de 41 ans. Son frère aîné Champollion-Figeac, bien que grand érudit, restera dans l'ombre pour mieux mettre en valeur le génie de son frère cadet, et éditera la majorité de ses travaux, auxquels il avait d'ailleurs contribué.

        Experiments and Observations on the Gastric Juice

      1833 - (MEDICINE). Beaumont, William. Experiments and Observations on the Gastric Juice, and the Physiology of Digestion. Plattsburgh [N.Y.]: Printed by F. P. Allen, 1833. 8vo. 280 p. 3 woodcut illustrations. Original tan paper- covered boards, purple-brown linen spine. Rebacked, retaining 95% of the original spine but largely obscuring the original printed paper spine label. Gathering 2L browned, as always, the usual scattered foxing, else a very good copy of a fragile book. First edition of perhaps the greatest American contribution to medical science. Alexis St. Martin, a French Canadian trapper, had sustained a severe gunshot wound of the abdomen. To keep the stomach's contents from spilling out, Beaumont initially capped it over with compresses. But as healing progressed, the stomach lining hypertrophied and grew some extra thickness at the opening, so that, by pouting outwards, or prolapsing, it acted as a partial stopper (as shown in the detail of plate III). The remainder of the closure was maintained by the natural muscular elasticity of the stomach walls. As a result, the stomach opening could be manipulated, the pouting-out mucosa compressed or moved aside or pushed inwards, and, for the first time in medical history, Beaumont could actually observe the processes of human digestion. In several years of studying St. Martin, Beaumont established the chemical nature of digestion, recorded the comparative rates of dissolution of foods, and noted the effects of emotions on gastric secretion. All of these observations were the basis of Pavlov's experiments a century later. Beaumont had his studies printed by a country printer in Plattsburgh, New York, a town where he had once practiced medicine. The book was neither elegant nor well-bound, and copies that have survived in good condition are rare.

Résultat d'une mission d'étude confiée en 1831 à Tocqueville et Beaumont alors qu'ils étaient magistrats à Versailles, afin d'examiner le système carcéral américain. Ils publièrent leur rapport dès leur retour, mais aussitôt Beaumont fut relevé de ses fonctions de substitut, et Tocqueville solidaire, démissionna de son poste de juge suppléant. En 1841, Tocqueville affirmera : « le premier ouvrage que nous ayons publié en commun M. de Beaumont et moi sur les prisons d'Amérique, a eu pour rédacteur unique M. de Beaumont. Je n'ai fourni que mes observations et quelques notes ». Il semble néanmoins avoir rédigé lui-même les notes et études statistiques de l'ouvrage. Suite à cette expérience américaine allait paraître en 1835 "De la Démocratie en Amérique".¶ Sabin n°4190.

        Résumés analytiques

      Turin, Imprimerie Royale, 1833. 1833, 1833, in-4, de 166 pages, demi-chagrin vert à coins de la seconde moitié du XIXe siècle, tranches de tête dorées, Première édition, rare. Cauchy (1789-1857), après une carrière polémique en tant que professeur à l'École Polytechnique, s'exila du fait de son refus de la Monarchie de Juillet ; il se rendit tout d'abord à Fribourg, puis à partir de 1831, à Turin où on lui offrit une chaire à l'Université. Il y donna des cours de 1831 à 1833. Dans la présente publication, il fait le "Résumé" pédagogique de ses deux puissants mémoires, "Sur la mécanique céleste" et "Sur les rapports qui existent entre le calcul des résidus et le calcul des limites", lus devant l'Académie des Sciences de Turin en 1831 et qui contribuèrent à l'avancée de l'analyse mathématique. "Des recherches approfondies sur différentes branches des sciences mathématiques m'ont conduit à des résultats nouveaux et à de nouvelles méthodes qui fournissent la solution d'un grand nombre de questions diverses [...] En attendant que je puisse donner à ces matières de plus amples développements [...] j'ai pensé qu'une série d'articles destinés à offrir le résumé des théories les plus importantes de l'analyse, soit anciennes soit nouvelles, particulièrement des théories qu'embrasse l'analyse algébrique, et des méthodes qui en rendent l'exposition plus facile, pourrait intéresser les géomètres et ceux qui s'adonnent à la culture des sciences." (page [3]). Cauchy est l'un des fondateurs de la théorie des fonctions. Sa première contribution fut son "Mémoire sur les intégrales définies" de 1814, qu'il présenta à l'âge de 25 ans. Ses recherches atteignent leur point culminant avec la parution, en 1825, de son "Mémoire sur les intégrales définies prises entre des limites imaginaires", dans lequel il formule, avec une précision magistrale, le sens d'une intégrale définie et dans lequel il présente son Théorème intégral. Le 11 octobre 1831, à Turin, Cauchy présente un mémoire "Sur la mécanique céleste et sur un nouveau calcul", dans lequel il développe pour la première fois une nouvelle méthode de calcul, capable, selon lui, de résoudre toutes les équations de tous les degrés et qu'on nommera par la suite, la Formule intégrale de Cauchy. En novembre 1831, devant la même académie de Turin, il présente conjointement ses deux puissantes méthodes mathématiques, le Théorème des Résidus et sa Formule Intégrale. Bel exemplaire, grand de marges, portant l'ex-libris imprimé d'Henri Viellard (1840-1886), polytechnicien et maire de Méziré dans le territoire de Belfort, qui constitua de son vivant une belle bibliothèque scientifique. Cachet annulé de l'Institut Catholique de Paris
