A solid copy. * Only edition. The dominant religious presence in Argentina, the Catholic Church was also its most important provider of social services and a powerful force in the national culture. Following independence from Spain in 1810, there were sharp disagreements within the national ruling elite over the proper degree of Church influence in the country. At the same time the Papacy, unwilling to offend Spain, condemned the revolutions sweeping South America at the time, which created additional tensions within Argentina. The Memorial Ajustado was written by Agrelo, the primary author of the 1813 Proyecto de Constitucion Argentina. It intended to clarify sections in the constitution concerning church-state relations. It called for state financial support for the Church, but allowed religious freedom. Other articles, all controversial, included compulsory secular education, support of ci [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Allibone notes that the book was first published in 1797, and that the last edition was in 1841 in octavo. Apparently this is the only edition with color plates, and we presume that much of the edition was not colored. Johnstone's theories, though popular and even influential in his day, have not withstood the rigors of responsible drainage. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Bibliotheca Heberiana

      16 vols. bound in 6. 8vo, cont. patterned cloth (Vols. 1-13), modern cloth (Vols. 14-15), & orig. wrappers (Ghent sale). London: Sotheby, Evans, or Wheatley (Vols. 1-13), Paris: Silvestre (Vols. 14 & 15), & Ghent: Ch. Citerne, 1834-37. The auction catalogues of the library of Richard Heber are very rare; this set is complete and includes the very rare Ghent catalogue of 26 Oct. 1835. "The Dibdinian age may be aptly said to terminate with the dispersal of the gigantic library accumulated by Richard Heber (1773-1833), a bibliomaniac if ever there was one...From 1800 to 1830, he purchased at every London sale, either in his own name or through agents like Triphook and Thorpe. He thought of nothing of securing whole libraries at a time. When he died, his books filled two houses in London, one at Hodnet, one at Oxford, one at Ghent and one at Paris, not to speak of smaller stores at Brussels, Antwerp and other Continental cities. The total number of volumes in his library must have been between two and three hundred thousand, and it is doubtful whether any private individual has ever owned so large a library... "The dispersal of the Heber library took no less than sixteen sales, thirteen in London by Evans, Sotheby and Wheatley, two in Paris and one in Ghent...The Heber catalogues, although badly compiled and arranged in the most inconvenient manner, are daily consulted by every bibliographer... "Heber's library, although it contained books of every description and in every language, was especially strong in literature and in history. His series of Continental books, early Italian and Spanish works, later Latin poetry, humanistic treatises of the Renaissance, were unrivalled. He owned a very large number of early French books... "The real strength of Heber's library was, however, in the field of early English literature, especially poetry and the drama. For thirty years he collected systematically and purchased nearly every item which came on the market."-De Ricci, pp. 102-04. Fine set from the library of E.P. Goldschmidt. ❧ Gustave Brunet, Dictionnaire de Bibliologie Catholique, cols. 469-70 & 566-68. .

        L'Antotrofia Ossia La Coltivazione De'Fiori

      Firenze 1834 - 24 hand-colored botanical plates. Red half leather binding, with marbled boards, four raised bands to the spine, and gilt lettering and detailing to the spine. Unfortunately, there is a 4" x 1" light dampstain at the head of every leaf for about the first half of the book. Otherwise the interior is clean, unmarked and quite bright, with only occasional slight foxing. If not for the dampstaining to the first plates, every plate would be in very good to near fine condition. Rear hinge is starting, and front hinge is holding on by only one seam. The leather is cracked about 3" at the tail and 1.75" at the head of the front gutter. Three fore-corners are rubbed through the leather to expose the cardboard below, and the marbled paper is slightly chipped along the lower edge. Otherwise the leather and boards are only slightly scuffed (and look nicer than most books of this age). Gilt remains quite bright. This copy is protected in a lightly rubbed acetate dust jacket. Overall, we are grading the book as fair condition, although parts of it are very good or better. We are happy to send more photos upon request. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Watercolour study of Birds

      1834. Watercolour. Painted on Whatman paper dated 1831. Paintings of both sides of the sheet. In excellent condition. A stunning watercolour study of a demoiselle crane, curmoor, a crow, various thrushes Unfortunately we have not been able to discover any information concerning the artist of this charming watercolour. It is numbered and titled within the image but it bears no signature or date. It is obviously from the hand of an accomplished amateur painter who had a natural talent design and keen eye for detail. Amateur animal and flower painting became extremely popular during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century as a favored pursuit for aristocratic women. Painting was viewed as a necessary talent for young women, and was eagerly pursued and practiced by the upper classes. This skillful painting appears to be a watercolour study of an illustrated natural history text. Published scientific texts such as this were printed throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth century and commonly included illustrations of both flora and fauna specimens. The numbering and titles further confirm that this is a study from a printed source, since this method of identifying specimens was typically used in published volumes. Lovingly rendered and carefully painted, this skillful watercolour is a true work of art.

        The Ladies' Flower-Garden [comprising] ornamental annuals; ornamental perennials (2 volumes); ornamental bulbous plants; ornamental greenhouse plants; British wild flowers.

      London William Smith -1849 1834 - 5 works bound in 6 volumes, 4to (27 x 22cm.), first editions of Ornamental Perrenials & Ornamental Greenhouse plants, 303 (of 304) hand-coloured lithograph plates (47+95+58+60+42), occasional light spotting, original green cloth gilt, pictorial vignettes to spine and upper covers, spines faded to tan, neat repairs to extremities, a very good set. An ttractive set including two first editions of loudon's popular botantical works, containing a wealth of handsome hand-coloured lithographs. Loudon began her literary career with a strange futuristic novel entitled The Mummy (1827), and only began to write botanical works after her marriage to and work alongside John Loudon, the horticultural publisher and writer. Aware that the abundance of technical terms in horticultural books were off-putting to new gardeners, particularly women, she went about making gardening an accessible recreational activity. A self-taught artist, Loudon ranks as one of the most successful female botanical illustrators. Her artistic style, which involved grouping flowers to form delicate bouquets, though unusual for the time was immediately accepted among gardeners. Her attractive illustrations, known for their bright colour, became extremely sought after and were often imitated in designs for decorative products. Nissen BBI 1253, 1237, 1235, 1233, 1236.

        De Corneae Transplantatione. Dissertatio Inauguralis.

      . Bonnae, typis Caroli Georgii, 1834, 4°, 3 Bl., 26 pp., 3 handcolorierte lith. Tafeln mit 8 Abbildungen, feiner roter Halbleinenband der Zeit, Goldschnitt und Rückenvergoldung; feines Exemplar.. Erste Auflage! - Im Jahre 1834 promovierte Wilhelm Thome (1809 (10 ?)-1846) mit dieser Arbeit über die Verpflanzung der Hornhaut. Er experimentierte ebenfalls an Hunden und Kaninchen und konnte sich rühmen, daß die Hornhaut, in fünf von acht Versuchen einheilte, angeblich mit teilweisem Erhalt der Durchsichtigkeit. Thomes Methode bestand darin, mit dem Starmesser etwas vom Rande der Cornea entfernt einzugehen und sie dann mit der Schere auszuschneiden. Später benutze er dazu ein zweischneidiges Messer. Er gewann zunächst das Transplantat auf diese Weise und excidierte erst dann am Empfängerauge. Zur Befestigung verwendete er Ligaturen und verzichtete auf anschließenden Verschluß des Auges, da er sich so einen besseren Abfluß des Wundsekrets versprach." Giese - Angeregt durch Arbeiten von Stilling und Thome führten nach 1840 Ärzte verschiedener Nationalitäten, zu denen Davis, Plouvier, Feldmann und Hauenstein gehörten unter Leitung Desmarres Tierversuche durch, deren Ergebnisse Desmarres 1843 der Academie Royale des Sciences vorlegte und in der er feststellte, daß die Übertragung von Hornhaut eines Tieres auf ein anderes gut möglich sei, daß sie auch anwachse, aber sich bis auf manchmal klarbleibende Randpartien stets eintrübe. Münchow - Wilhelm Thome, am 22. Dez. 1809 geboren in Oberollendorf bei Bonn, studierte seit 1828 Medizin in Bonn und promovierte dort 1834, anschließend setzte er seine Studien in Berlin fort, kehrte 1836 als approbierter Arzt nach Bonn zurück und unternahm von dort aus Studienreisen nach Wien, Venedig, Neapel, Florenz, Rom und Paris. 1838 ließ er sich in Köln nieder und errichtete dort eine Augenheilanstalt, die er erfolgreich leitete. 1846 starb er an den Folgen eines Schlaganfalles. - Engelmann 576; SGC I; Callissen 33, p.21; Hirschberg 344; Münchow, Geschichte der Augenheilkunde p.691; Giese, Geschichte der Hornhauttransplantation, p.44

        Babbage's Calculating Engine [ running Title ]

      Lilly, Wait, Colman, and Holden, Boston 1834 - [2], [263]-545 pages. Cancel title page (?) with Boston imprint (published originally in Edinburgh). We offer the entire Volume LIX, April-July 1934, a quarterly issue of "The Edinburgh Review, Or Critical Journal" containing the Lardner/Babbage article on pages 263-327. The article includes 5 engravings in the text of calculator dials. Front and rear volume wrappers are lacking, remnants of the spine label and paper remain. Occasional light foxing. The whole housed in a custom cloth clamshell case with gold spine lettering "Charles Babbage Difference Engine No 1 | Boston 1834" Disbound. The Edinburgh Review was published in Edinburgh and reprinted in London, New York, and as here in Boston. Of the four, the Boston imprint is by far the rarest with less than 5 institutional holdings in OCLC (versus over 500 for the others). As such, it is the hardest printing of this article to obtain, and can be considered an early American computing imprint. It is undoubtedly the first American printing of this article. This article by Lardner reviews and comments on the following articles: 'Letter to Sir Humphrey Davy.on the application of Machinery to Calculate and Print Mathematical Tables by Charles Babbage', 'On the Application of Machinery to the Calculation of Astronomical and Mathematical Tables' by Charles Babbage (1822), 'Address to the Astronomical Society by Henry Thomas Colebrooke on presenting the first gold Medal of the Society to Charles Babbage Esq. For the invention of the Calculating Machine' (1822), 'On the determination of the General Term of a new Class of Infinite Series' by Charles Babbage (1824), 'On Errors common to many Tables of Logarithms' by Charles Babbage (1827), 'On a Method of Expressing by Signs the Action of Machinery' by Charles Babbage (1826), and 'Report by the Committee appointed by the Council of the Royal Society to consider the subject referred to in a Communication received by them from the Treasury, respecting Mr. Babbage's Calculating Engine and to report thereupon.'' (1829) This 60+ page article provides an extensive commentary and historical perspective on Babbage's work. 'The most extensive contemporary account of the Difference Engine No. 1, written by Dionysius Lardner, a prolific popularizer of science. ''From the technical detail that it contains, much of which can be directly linked to the drawings of the machine, it is evident that Babbage was directly involved with and played a substantial hand in its preparation'' (Bromley 1989, 24) From this article Georg Scheutz first obtained detailed information about Babbage's Difference Engine, enabling him to design and eventually construct his own calculating machine twenty years later' (Origins of Cyberspace 51 referring to the London edition).

        Excursions in New South Wales, Western Australia and Van Diemen's Land, During the Years 1830, 1831, 1832, and 1833

      Richard Bentley, London 1834 - Octavo, with two lithograph plates; a fine, large copy, edges rough-trimmed only, in half red morocco gilt by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. Sangorski & Sutcliffe. An honest look at the three colonies. The revised and enlarged second edition. Breton emigrated to Tasmania after leaving the navy in 1827, eventually becoming police magistrate at Launceston. He visited the other colonies, including the recently established settlement at Swan River, as well as New Zealand. He gives an excellent description of Tasmania at perhaps its most difficult time when it was suffering from the depredations of bushrangers and the struggles with the Aborigines. He wrote the book on his return to England, as he says in order to give people who were considering settling in the Australian colonies a realistic and practical view of what the colonies were actually like. This is certainly one of the better-written such descriptive books, and was evidently successful since this second edition was needed just a year after first publication. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Lectures on Political Economy, delivered in Trinity and Michaelmas Terms, 1833

      Dublin: William Curry, Jun. and Company, Longman and Company, London,, 1834. Octavo (220 x 132 mm). Original green cloth and drab boards, remains of paper label to the spine. Acquisition date, 16 June 1891, in pencil to front free endpaper, with pencil marginalia throughout in an unidentified contemporary hand. Half title removed. Spine ends rubbed and corners worn away. Rear hinge split, but still holding. Some general dust soiling, ink splashes and paper stock lightly browned. Withal a sound copy of a scarce book. First edition. Longfield was diverted from his interest in economics by a busy and successful career in law, being transferred from the Whately chair of political economy to that of feudal and English law at Trinity the same year as this publication, and serving as a judge and Irish privy councillor in later years. But it is his brief tenure of the first chair in political economy to be founded in Ireland on which his reputation rests today. It was the American economist E. R. A. Seligman who rescued Longfield from obscurity in 1903, publishing two articles in the Economic Journal, "On some neglected British economists", drawing attention to this, Longfield's first, and his two subsequent publications, Four Lectures on Poor Laws, and Three Lectures on Commerce and one on Absenteeism. "Since then it has come to be recognized by economists throughout the world that in these lectures Longfield produced work of outstanding originality … In 1833 when Longfield gave his first lectures on political economy … the theories of value and distribution developed by David Ricardo and propagated by James Mill dominated the subject. Having shown that he understood these theories better than many contemporary interpreters, Longfield rejected them and presented his own analysis in five lectures. His explanation of value emphasized market prices rather than natural values, stressing utility as of at least equal importance with labour costs in determining value. His theory of distribution was perhaps his most original contribution: in it he put forward a theory of profits as determined by the marginal productivity of physical capital and of wages as determined, not by subsistence, but by the specific productivity of each labourer … indeed he really founded a distinctive 'Trinity College Dublin school of value theory'—but until Seligman wrote they remained completely unknown to economists outside Ireland, and this state of affairs Longfield himself appears never to have sought to alter" (ODNB). In his later years Longfield maintained an interest in economic and social questions, being a founder member of the Dublin Statistical Society and president of the social economy section of the National Association for the Promotion of Social Science. The book was published with two different imprints, the other being by

        Description of the Distinct, Confluent, and Inoculated Small Pox, Varioloid Disease, Cow Pox, and Chicken Pox.

      Boston, Lilly, Wait 1834 - Second edition. 4to. iv, 73 p. ill. Hardcover with spine bound in contemporary leather. Minor wear to extremities. Splitting starting to head and tail of spine. Clean, unmarked pages with minimal toning. Please feel free to view our photographs. After receiving his degree from the Harvard Medical School in 1825, Fisher spent two years studying in Paris with Laennec, Andral, and Velpeau. This book was prepared from materials Fisher collected in Paris. Much of the original edition of 1829 was destroyed in a fire, hence the publication of this little-altered second edition in 1834. "The paintings from which the plates in this volume are engraved, and of which they are accurate copies, were made in the Hospitals of Paris during the years 1825 and 1826, a period at which the variolous disease prevailed epidemically in that city. They were executed by a French artist under my own immediate direction, and were all begun and finished at the bed-side of the patients from whom they were taken" (dedication, p. iii). Fisher's book "is dedicated to James Jackson, from whom he conceived the idea of preparing the work, and is a quarto containing life-size plates made by a distinguished artist. It was a work of considerable importance. Later the plates and unsold copies were destroyed by fire" (Kelly & Burrage, American Medical Biographies). [Attributes: Hard Cover]
