Featuring a portrait frontispiece. Includes a facsimile letter from Schiller to the rear. With armorial bookplate of Henry H. Davidson, 1919to front pastedown. Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller (10 November 1759 9 May 1805) was a German poet, philosopher, historian, and playwright. A contemporary and friend of Goethe, the names of these two now represent to many the pinnacle of German culture, and Schiller is considered Germany's most important classical playwright. They frequently discussed issues concerning aesthetics, and Schiller encouraged Goethe to finish works he left as sketches. This relationship and these discussions led to a period now referred to as Weimar Classicism. Goethe convinced Schiller to return to playwriting. He and Goethe founded the Weimar Theater, which became the leading theater in Germany. Their collaboration helped lead to a renaissance of drama in Germany. Condition: In a decorative full morocco binding. Externally, very attractive although somewhat rubbed. The rear joint is cracked. The front hinge is slightly strained although holding firm. Internally, firmly bound except for the first gathering which is working slightly loose. Lovely and bright throughout. Generally very clean throughout, although there is water damage and light spottingto the first and last few pages, including, regrettably, the frontispiece, title, andfacsimile letter. Copperplate ink inscription dated 1836 to front blank. Overall: GOOD..

        Souvenir de la Tarantella Napolitaine dirigée par Louis Puccinelli Maître de Dans dessinée par Gaétan Dura. Lith Gatti & Dura

      Gatti & Dura [ca 1834], Naples - Quite rare. Not in Leslie, Beaumont or Magriel. Derra de Moroda 2105. OCLC (3 copies only). The drawings by Dura (1805-1878) and the colouring are particularly well-executed. The tarantella has roots in ancient history; it is said to derive its name from the city of Tarentum (modern-day Taranto), formerly a Greek settlement on the southern coast of Italy. Historians have identified representations of the dance in ancient Greek vase paintings and on the wall paintings at Pompeii.". According to a widespread legend, the dance acquired its name because it was used as a cure for the poisonous bite of the tarantula spider. Gurzau reports that this etymological point was debated at the Venice Congress and Folk Festival in 1949, and the participants concluded that the legend was based on the similarity of the two words rather than the actuality. In apparent contradiction to this conclusion is the fact that the tarantella is performed as a kind of exorcism by the practitioners of Tarantism, an Italian possession cult comparable to the zar cult of Ethiopia or Vodun in Haiti."Stylized tarantellas have been used to add a touch of local color to the ballet stage. An early example is the tarantella created for Fanny Elssler in Jean Corallli's ballet La Tarentule (1836), the plot of which centers around real and feigned bites of the tarantula." The International Encyclopedia of Dance, Vol. 6, p. 104.An important document for the reconstruction of the Neapolitan tarantella. Oblong octavo panorama, consisting of lithographic title + 18 hand- coloured lithographic plates signed in the stone by the artist + 1 plate of lithographic music for the tarantella in piano score. Each plate with an animated illustration of a dancing couple with descriptive text regarding the execution of the particular step below the image. Individual plates measure approximately 140 x 182 mms. and are joined in accordion format; the whole when extended measures 140 x 354 mms.

        Il Magazzino Pittorico Universale Anno I

      Ponthenier - Genova 1834 - In 8° grande, barbe, Cartonato editoriale squisitamente decorato con incisione di Peschiera sul dorso e sul Piatto. Misura cm 29 x cm 22. Pagg. 204 + 1 indice. IL MAGAZZINO PITTORICO ILLUSTRATO. ANNO I 1834. I periodici artistici permettono l'interpretazione di fatti artistici moderni e permettono di capire la problematica artistica da un punto di vista figurativo, culturale e sociale. Il Magazzino pittorico universale risulta determinante per le sue peculiarià, nonché per essere il primo periodico divulgativo secondo l'accezione moderna del termine, in stampa dal 1834. Diretto da un giovane Avvocato ed erudito medievista, Michele canale, ricalca in parte le caratteristiche economiche e gestionali della "penny press", dall'uso dell'incisioni a quello della serie di colonne che scandiscono i singoli articoli. Le litografie di maggior rilievo sono di un giovane Federico Peschiera, che firma anche le incisioni in nero su pergamena, dell'edizione pregiata e rilegata, proposta dell'editore. Non mancano, ovviamente, oltre ad interessanti articoli sui grandi letterati ed artisti, ed ai grandi nobili della storia, storie e racconti di "varietà" per poter allietare ed alleggerire la lettura. La tradizione della rivista inizia subito con un vasto numero di articoli e argomenti, dagli animali selvatici, come il leone o la iena, ma anche la giraffa, alla caccia alle fiere. Non mancano poi articoli sui grandi personaggi della scienza e della storia, G. Watt, Beatrice D'Este, Scipione Maffei o Maria Stuarda. I grandi monumenti da Piazza San Marco a Venezia, al monumento d'Andrea Doria, alla Cattedrale di San Lorenzo a Genova. Un volume ad alto interesse storico per gli amanti dell'arte e della stampa.

        Astronomy and General Physics

      London - William Pi, 1834. London - William Pi, 1834 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A bright, clean copy of Astronomy and General Physics by William Whewell. Bound in cloth. This copy has been rebacked. Astronomy and General Physics is Treatise III of The Bridgewater Treatises, on the Power, Wisdom and Goodness of God as Manifested in the Creation. William Whewell, 1794 1866, was an English polymath, scientist, Anglican priest, philosopher, theologian, and historian of science. What is most often remarked about Whewell is the breadth of his endeavours. At a time when men of science were becoming increasingly specialised, Whewell appears as a vestige of an earlier era when men of science dabbled in a bit of everything. He researched ocean tides, for which he won the Royal Medal, published work in the disciplines of mechanics, physics, geology, astronomy, and economics, while also finding the time to compose poetry, author a Bridgewater Treatise, translate the works of Goethe, and write sermons and theological tracts. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. There is some mild wear to the extremities, including some mild bumping. There is an 80mm crack to the front board. Internally the pages are clean and bright. Overall the condition is very good..

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 writen 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 civi

        The Penny Magazine of the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge

      - London - Charles Knight, 1834. - London - Charles Knight, 1834 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce edition with two consecutive volumes together ofThe Penny Magazineof the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge with woodcutillustrations throughout and title pages bound in. Two volumesbound in one. Included editions run from January 4 1834 (113) to December 12 1835 (237). The Penny Magazine, published every Saturday from 31 March 1832 to 31 October 1845, was an illustrated British magazine aimed at the working class. Charles Knight created it for the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge in response to Chambers's Edinburgh Journal, which started two months earlier. Sold for only a penny and illustrated with woodcuts, it was an expensive enterprise that could only be supported by very large circulation. Though initially very successful - with a circulation of 200,000 in the first year - it proved too dry and too Whiggish to appeal to the working class audience it needed to be financially viable. Previous owner's ink inscription to front pastedown. Bound by H. Scott, Carlisle with binder's label to front pastedown. Condition: In a half calf binding with marbled paper covered boards. Externally, sound but with slight wear to extremities, with some rubbing and the odd marks to boards and very slight loss to head of spine. Joints held by cords only, backstripl lifting. Internally, firmly bound. Generally bright but with occasional age toning and spotting, mostly to endpapers and text block edge. Overall: GOOD.

Die Serie scheint lückenhaft: vermutlich wurden jedes Jahr vier Sammelbände ausgeliefert, von den meisten Jahrgängen sind jedoch nur zwei bis drei Bände vorhanden. Da die Originalumschläge der Zeitschrift nur zum Teil mitgebunden wurden, ist eine exakte Kollationierung schwierig. - Seltenes und dekoratives Kuriosum.

The crown also set aside 20 million pounds to compensate the slave owners, who could retain their workforce for a modest sum.
