        [WoO 62]. Autograph musical manuscript of a portion of the composer's oratorio, "Des Heilands letzte Stunden," for choir and piano 4-hands

      4 pp. written on 2 leaves of a bifolium. Oblong folio (ca. 257 x 345 mm.). Notated in ink on 12-stave hand-ruled paper, the pages numbered 115-118 in pencil. A total of 21 measures. Text by Friedrich Rochlitz. With manuscript annotation to upper margin of first page possibly in the hand of Spohr's widow. Unsigned. No date, but 1834. & & Together with:& An additional leaf from the same manuscript containing 2 pages with a manuscript note, most probably in the hand of Spohr's widow, identifying the work, stating that it was composed in Kassel in 1834, and that the present manuscript consists of page 121 [and 122] of the score. Slightly worn; minor fraying to edges; some browning, heavier to first page. In very good condition overall. The additional leaf somewhat browned and separated at center by a neat vertical split. . "Regarded by many contemporaries as worthy of a place beside Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven in the pantheon of the greatest composers, he has, together with Gluck and Cherubini, been allotted a considerably lower status by posterity. Mozart's Figaro and Wagner's Tristan were both composed during Spohr's lifetime; his own work looks, Janus-like, towards both the formalism and clarity of the Classical tradition, and the structural and harmonic experimentation associated with 19th-century Romanticism..." & & "... In the field of oratorio, Spohr made a distinctive contribution to the music of his day. Die letzten Dinge (1825–6) marked an epoch in the history of 19th-century oratorio. In this work he adopted a number of the characteristics developed in his operas; it is notable for its avoidance of closed forms and for its expressiveness, attained through the use of chromatic harmony... and masterly orchestration... Many of the finest musicians of the day were profoundly affected by it." & & "... In 1834–5, inspired by Bach's St Matthew Passion, of which he gave the first Kassel performance in 1883, Spohr composed his Passion oratorio, Des Heilands letzte Stunden, to a text of Friedrich Rochlitz."

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

      Dublin: Richard Milliken and Son; London, B. Fellowes, , 1834. Octavo (222 x 140 mm). Original green pebble-grain cloth with paper label to the spine. Contemporary ownership inscription to the front free endpaper. Bookplate of the Nobel prize winning economist George Stigler to the front pastedown. Light browning, cloth a little rubbed and soiled, short split to the head of the upper joint and the label slightly chipped at the edges, a very good copy. 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.

        On Wages and Combination

      London: Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, Green, & Longman, Paternoster Row, 1834 First edition. Original blue boards, uncut,rebacked in gray paper, printed paper label on front cover. . Octavo. Complete with the errata slip. Library label of Nottingham Free Public Reference Library at head of front cover, and issue label on front pastedown, small rubberstamp on title-page and in the blank margins of four other leaves. Otherwise a very good, clean copy. Presentation copy, , inscribed at the head of the title-page 'The Right Honourable T. Spring Rice, M.P. with the author's compliments'. Having served as MP for Limerick for 12 years, the Whig Thomas Spring Rice (1790?1866) was by now the Member for Cambridge. The following year he began service as Chancellor of the Exchequer (1835?9) in Viscount Melbourne's second premiership. In his biography of Torrens, Lionel Robbins notes that 'this work ... has certainly not received the attention it deserves as the most systematic attempt by a Classical economist to examine the limits within which the power of combination to raise wages may be effective' (Robert Torrens and the evolution of classical economics, 1958, p. 49).

        La Geografia en Laminas y Mapas

      Barcelona,: por los herederos de D. Agustin Roca, 1834.. Oblong octavo, engraved frontispiece, title and 32 plates; a fine copy in original printed boards, spine renewed. A very good copy of this very rare illustrated Spanish edition of the costumes of the world, after the original French publication La GÈographie en estampes ou múurs et costumes des diffÈrens peuples de la terre (Paris, 1815). The French edition seems to have been republished several times, but this is the only edition of this Spanish translation of which we are aware.Each of the four main sections - Europe, Asia, Africa, the Americas - has its own engraved map as a section head, the maps with interesting animals in the surrounds: the American map, for example, is surrounded by a turkey, bear, seal, beaver and a llama. The American section includes a diverse range of nationalities, including Canadians, Greenlanders, Cubans, Californians, and Patagonians, but concludes with an engraving showing Tahitians and Sandwich Islanders, with a note that these island groups are separated from America by an immense ocean, but are nonetheless the most significant in the region.New Holland makes an unusual appearance as the most distant part of Asia, although this is as much to do with convenience as geography. The Asian section begins with the Turks, and meanders its way south-eastward, featuring groups such as the Arabs, Persians, Indians, Chinese, Japanese, Tartars, Georgians, Kamchatkans, and Filipinos, before coming to rest in New Holland. The accompanying note for New Holland is perhaps surprisingly general, but does include facts such as how this "fifth part of the world" is as big as all of Europe, and now has several substantial English settlements, as well as very brief notes on the mineral wealth and animals of the continent.The engraved frontispiece is a tableau featuring a woman surrounded by the instruments of navigation, including a large terrestrial globe, charts, and telescopes; she gestures with her left hand towards a ship, while the names of Cook, La PÈrouse and Bougainville are written on oval-shaped tablets at her feet.Fairfax Murray (Germany); Palau, 101.454.

        ?The Century of Invention. Anno Domini 2000. Or the March of Aerostation, Steam and Perpetual Motion.?

      London?: ca., 1834. Extremely rare, separately-issued caricature printed on linen satirizing the early nineteenth-century British love affair with transportation. The print imagines the consequences of technological progress in the year 2000. It depicts a wild fantasy overrun with improbable vehicles from the impracticable and obsolete to the quixotic: steam-powered carriages, giant hydrogen balloons, and men sprouting wings. The handkerchief was also offered in sepia (McCormick Collection of Aeronautica, Item 284, no. 60, Princeton University). Fortunately, perhaps, the survival-rate of handkerchiefs is low, and the McCormick impression is the only other copy located. Locomotives and experimental steam engine carriages were both in use by the 1830s. The cartoonist, unaware that the internal combustion engine and the automobile would be invented later that century, lampoons the steam carriage rather than the increasingly reliable train. Only buildings on wheels traverse his "Grand Northern Railway" bridge. One of these, the "Steamo Equestrian Travelling Company," involves no actual horses. Neither does the stag hunt by steam-carriage above the bridge. A crier below advertises a "rare Exhibition" of outmoded transportation: "A Live Horse!!! Supposed to be the very last of the RACE." Even religion has been ameliorated by technology. As the "Zion Chappel" rolls by, a man advertises tomorrow?s sermon: "A CAST IRON PARSON WILL PREACH BY STEAM AT FUDGE CHAPEL." The hubris of these futuristic inventors is clearest in the sky. Balloon travel was no longer considered viable when this print appeared, yet its Londoners float over to Dublin and back before breakfast. A balloon race is also taking place (between the "Out o?Sight Club" and the "United Moonites"). Like the mythical Icarus, who flew too close to the sun, the flying men hunting a flock of birds will probably bring about their own ruin by inadvertently shooting the balloons. This lithograph was sold as a printed handkerchief, a relatively common form of ephemera during the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, but one which rarely survives. As no publishing information appears on the print, it may well have been a pirated edition. The image is an enlarged, reversed copy of a lithograph by caricaturist C.J. Grant from the Every Body?s Album & Caricature Magazine no. 3, February 1, 1834. He contributed regularly to the magazine, which appeared in thirty-nine sheets every two weeks from 1834-35. Grant also produced numerous separately-issued lithographs in paper formats, but not of the present image. The artist?s considerable body of work has been unjustly overlooked until recently; e.g. his Thieme Becker entry notes only that he cut a single wood engraving for the popular London periodical "Punch." The satirist?s biting wit still shines through today as he gains a proper reception: "Everybody?s album contains some of Grant's finest lithographic work, as well as displaying his imagination at its most fertile". (R.J. Pound, ed., C.J. Grant's political drama: a radical satirist rediscovered, 1998, p 10.). Lithograph printed in red on linen as a handkerchief. (image 15 x 19 1/2 in., (38.0 x 49.5 cm.); sheet 15 1/8 x 21 1/2 (38.4 x 54.8 cm). Some minor spotting. Margins show evidence of thumbtacks used for display.

        Poems

      London - T. Cadell, E. Moxon, 1834 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A lovelycopy of Poems by Samuel Rogers,the first edition with theillustrations by Turner. Bound in calfleather with gilt lettering and decoration, blindstampedand raised bands. First Edition. With illustrations based on engravings by Turner and Stothard. With an armorial nameplate forJohn Roland Abbey. Bound by R. Davies, with a bookbinder's label on the front pastedown. Included with this book is a Blackwell's Invoice. This book was sold for 45 in 1991. Samuel Rogers, 1763 1855, was an English poet, during his lifetime one of the most celebrated, although his fame has long since been eclipsed by his Romantic colleagues and friends Wordsworth, Coleridge and Byron. His recollections of these and other friends such as Charles James Fox are key sources for information about London artistic and literary life, with which he was intimate, and which he used his wealth to support. He made his money as a banker and was also an art collector. Joseph Mallord William Turner RA, 1775 1851, was an English Romantic landscape painter, watercolourist and printmaker. Turner was considered a controversial figure in his day, but is now regarded as the artist who elevated landscape painting to an eminence rivalling history painting. Although renowned for his oil paintings, Turner is also one of the greatest masters of British watercolour landscape painting. Thomas Stothard, 1755 1834, was an English painter and engraver. In 1778 he became a student of the Royal Academy, of which he was elected associate in 1792 and full academician in 1794. In 1812 he was appointed librarian, having served as assistant for two years. The designs by Stothard have been estimated by art historian Ralph Nicholson Wornum to number five thousand, and of these about three thousand have been engraved. Major John Roland Abbey, 1894 1969, was an English book collector and High Sheriff. In 1914, he was commissioned as a regimental officer in the Rifle Brigade. Abbey later rejoined the Rifle Brigade in 1939. Although he left the army in 1943, he was awarded the honorary rank of Major in 1946. After leaving the army he became manager, and later Chairman, of the Kemp Town brewery. In 1945 he was appointed High Sheriff of Sussex, a position he held for a year. His book collecting started in 1929 buying books from various Private presses, eventually gaining complete collections of books from the Kelmscott, Ashendene and Gwasg Gregynog presses. He also collected antiquarian books, starting from the sale of Primrose's collection, eventually holding over 1,300 books. Condition: The binding is generally tight and firm. There is very mild wear to the extremities, including very mild bumping and rubbing. Internally there is very slight browning to the page edges, with scattered spotting. There is an ink inscription on the rear free-endpaper. Overall the condition is very good indeed..

        Souvenir de la Tarantella Napolitaine

      1834. first edition. Scarce Dance of the TarantulaStep By Hand-Colored Panorama Step[PANORAMA]. DURA, Gaetano. Souvenir de la Tarantella Napolitaine dirigée par Louis Puccinelli Maitre de Danse dessinée par Gaetan Dura. Naples: Gatti et Dura, n.d. [c. 1834]. First edition. Oblong octavo (5 7/16 x 7 1/8 in; 138 x181 mm). Hand-colored frontispiece, engraved title, one plate of music notation, and seventeen hand-colored lithographed plates with captions, in accordion format unfolding to 142 1/2 inches. Contemporary half calf over patterned paper boards. Gilt-rolled spine. Armorial bookplate of Mountgarret. An excellent copy of a scarce work.ABPC records only one complete copy at auction since 1923; an incomplete copy with only ten plates was sold in 1955. OCLC/KVK note only three institutional copies, at Harvard, NYPL, and Austria State Library."Also due to the trend of the illustration of the Neapolitan folklore, but more didactic, it is the lithographic album titled Tarantella. Neapolitan Dance, drawn entirely by Dura [1805-1878], published in Naples in 1833, and lithographed by Gatti in 1834. Dura's [Souvenir de la Tarantella Napolitaine], a very important document for the reconstruction of the Neapolitan tarantella, presents nineteen plates, accompanied by captions that explain, step by step, all the different phases of the dance. The style of the illustrations is basic: two dancers, drawn not without a certain grace and accuracy, move isolated on a white background completely devoid of any decoration or pittoresco. In the mid-1830s Dura became ass'ciated with Gatti, founding a lithographic establishment that soon became one of the most important in Naples. The brand of 'Gatti and Dura' published prints, calendars, atlases, graphic novels and works of popular nature, such as almanacs and miscellanies" (Encyclopedia Treccani.it, L'Enciclopedia Italiana).

        Autograph letter signed, to his sons Victor Gifford and John Woodhouse Audubon, concerning the publication of the second volume of his Ornithological Biography

      Edinburgh: 6 December 1834. 1p., single 4to sheet. (10 x 8 inches). (Backed with paper at an early date, small loss from opening touching two words). Important letter by Audubon to his sons, concerning the publication of his Ornithological Biography and shipping bird skins and watercolours back to America. The unpublished letter reads, in part: "I revised the introduction last evening with [William] Mac Gillevray, therefore the book you may conclude is nearly out! We think that by Tuesday next it will be before the readers here; at least some copies of it. Charles Black and father will be agents here on the same terms as before, but I will leave 200 copies only with them, 20 with Hill and will send a proportional number to our agents according to the demands that may be expected at their respective places. All the rest I shall ship by steamer to Havell. A review will appear on the 1st of Jany. in Jameson's Journal and I believe another in Blackwood's Magazine. We ship you now by the Royal William steamer one large new box containing 352 bird skins, which take great care of, all the mss of the 1st and 2d vol. Biographies, my Journals, sundry books, 55 original small drawings including several of eggs (10 it seems were not sent here by you), 18 middle size (2 wanting) and 20 large ones, drawing paper, brushes, &c &c, 24 plates water birds, our government letters ... " The remainder of the letter concerns their impending travel back to America. and closes, "I regret that we have to call on Mrs. G[ifford] at Duffields for I have much to do in the way of Drawing and writing the whole of this winter..." As early as November 1826, Audubon had begun thinking about the text which should accompany his monumental engraved illustrations of birds. He noted in his journal: "I shall publish the letterpress in a separate book, at the same time with the illustrations and shall accompany the descriptions of the birds with many anecdotes and accounts of localities connected with the birds themselves ..." (M.R. Audubon Audubon and his journals 1897, vol.I, p.163). Audubon had taken the decision to publish the letterpress separately because, according to British copyright law, had the letterpress accompanied the engravings, Audubon would have been obliged to deposit a copy of the work in each of the nine copyright libraries in the United Kingdom. This would have placed a strain on the economics of the production of the book. Work on the text did not begin in earnest until the end of 1830, just as Havell was nearing the completion of the engraving of the first 100 drawings. In the present letter, Audubon discusses the completion of the second volume of the work.

        [GRAY WASH SKETCH OF MEN BUILDING AN IGLOO DURING THE SECOND ROSS EXPEDITION TO THE ARCTIC]

      [Np. ca. 1834].. 5 x 3 1/2 inches. Bright and clean. Mounted on stiff paper. Fine. Matted, 12 1/2 x 9 1/2 inches. A gray wash sketch of three men building an igloo, while another group of three men and one husky dog stand off to the side. In the lower margin of the stiff paper upon which the illustration is mounted, a caption reads: "The Ross Expedition." This drawing is likely from Ross' second expedition, during which he and his crew camped over three consecutive winters from 1830 to 1833. While the illustration is not reproduced as a plate in Ross' official report, NARRATIVE OF A SECOND VOYAGE IN SEARCH OF A NORTH-WEST PASSAGE... (1835), it is similar in style to some of the published views. Ross made ample use of native construction methods, at one point overseeing the construction of a virtual arctic compound, complete with mess hall and officers' quarters, during their final winter on the ice in 1832-33. Though it is possible the drawing was done in the warmth of the expedition's winter quarters, it was likely composed after the expedition's return to Britain. Wash was rarely a favored medium in a climate where the seasonal highs seldom reached ten degrees Fahrenheit. Original art work concerning the early arctic expeditions is superlatively rare.

        Helen. A Tale...in Three Volumes

      London: Richard Bentley, 1834 First edition. Contemporary tan calf. Covers ruled in blind, with gilt armorial device in center of front covers. Gilt spine with black calf labels. Three volumes, octavo. . Bound without the half-titles. Binding extremities lightly rubbed, a few scuffs, intermittent light foxing, some pencil scribbling on back endpapers of Volume I. A very good set overall. This was Edgeworth's last novel, and one of her most popular books. Emily Lawless calls it "a novel of a very much more modern type than any other by the same hand. In reading it we are aware that the eighteenth century has at last dropped out of sight, and that we are well out upon the nineteenth, not indeed as yet 'Victorian', but in a sort of midway region, on the road to that superior epoch" (Maria Edgeworth, 1904).

        Du Suffrage universel. (Revue mensuelle d'économie politique 1834). Exemplaire personnel de Guizot

      Paris, Au bureau de la Revue 1834 Prestigieuse provenance : il s'agit de l'exemplaire personnel de Guizot avec le cachet gras de sa bibliothèque, 476 et 518 pages + un feuillet d'errata. Les pages de titre se trouvent aux pages 399 et 444. La provenance est d'autant plus intéressante que dans son célèbre texte sur l'affranchissement des nègres, Sismondi s'adresse à Guizot qui lui réponds ensuite. Grand in-8° relié, demi-chagrin de l'époque, dos lisse orné de filets, pièce de titre de chagrin noir gravé. Magnifique exemplaire sans rousseurs. Un manque minuscule (1 cm.) à la coiffe supérieure sinon très bel état. Sismondi (Geneva, 1773-1842) was a profound economist, writer on politics, and history, whose works were perceived and debated by Marx. Sismondi here pleads for a universal right to vote for all as a guarantee of the best government for all, that can prevent injustices and inequalities.Not in NUC, Einaudi, Goldsmiths', or Kress; OCLC locates two copies, at Cambridge, and in the London Library, RLIN adds one copy in the Swiss National Library. Parmi les autres contributions citons quelques unes, très importantes : Bentham : Déontologie ou science de la morale. Blanqui : Cours d'économie industrielle au Conservatoire des Arts et Métiers. Villermé : Rapport fait à l'Académie sur un ouvrage intitulé . Jean-Baptiste Say : Mélanges et correspondance d'économie politique. Sismondi : De la condition dans laquelle il convient de placer les nègres en les affranchissant. Très bon couverture rigide Edition originale

Eccezionale esemplare ad ampi margini, carte molto fresche. Molto raro e in ottimo stato.Brunet VI, Tab.6487. Great Flower Books (ediz.ital.) p.124. Niccoli p.320. Nissen BBI, 1527n. Plesch, 599. Saccardo II, p.84.Un raro esemplare da segnalarsi per gli insoliti margini, piuttosto ampi. Tutti gli esemplari che abbiamo avuto modo di esaminare sono a margini stretti. L' Autore, nato a S.Croce del Pino, in Toscana, e morto a Firenze nel 1842 fu giardiniere-botanico presso l'Orto Botanico di Firenze; la sua produzione e' piuttosto ricca, ma indubbiamente il suo nome resta legato all"Antotrofia", un raffinato lavoro, diviso dall'Autore in dodici parti, corrispondenti ai mesi dell'anno. Ogni capitolo reca il nome del mese, all'interno di esso si elencano i fiori che sbocciano in quel periodo dell'anno, con ricca descrizione dei vari metodi per coltivarli e propagarli, nonche' delle cure da adottare per tenere lontane le varie malattie. Tra i fiori descritti nei vari mesi il Piccioli ha scelto a suo giudizio i piu' belli, per essere raffigurati nelle tavole, affidandone l'incisione "alla cura di egregi artisti" (l'unico inc. a firmare parte delle 72 tavv. e, pero', il Bernieri). Alla parte scientifica dell'opera se ne affianca una etimologico- letteraria, ricca di curiosi aneddoti e di brani poetici.

        RELAZIONE ISTORICA DELLA TRASLAZIONE DEL SAGRO CORPO E MIRACOLI DI SANTA FILOMENA VERGINE E MARTIRE DA ROMA A MUGNANO

      PRESSO PIETRO PATERNO 1834 In 8. Dim. 22,5x15 cm. Pp. 199. Bella edizione del 1834 di questa rara opera su Santa Filomena di Roma (secolo IV) scritta dal Canonico Francesco di Lucia. L'opera è composta da tre tomi legati insieme ed è completa. Il nome ed il culto di Santa Filomena nacquero con il ritrovamento nel 1802 di alcune ossa all'interno di una lapide nelle Catacombe di Priscilla a Roma. Per un errore di interpretazione nell'iscrizione della lapide Santa Filomena venne considerata martire, poi tolta dal calendario negli anni 1960. Nel 1805 il Canonico de Lucia richiese delle reliquie dai resti rinvenuti nel Maggio 1802 (ormai ridotti a polvere e frammenti) per la costruzione di un nuovo altare nella sua chiesa a Mugnano del Cardinale.I resti, trasportati da Roma a Napoli arrivarono a Mugnano l'11 Agosto. Nel 1827 inoltre il Papa Leone XII diede alla chiesa di Mugnano i tre tabelloni di terracotti estratti dalla tomba. Nell'opera De Lucia descrive le meraviglie accompagnate dall'arrivo delle reliquie nella chiesa come miracoli (persone sottratte dalla morte), uso dei sensi, cure prodigiose, favori conceduti, apparizioni di Santa Filomena, le immagini della santa Martire vedute sudare, cambaimenti negli oggetti appartenuti alla Santa ecc... In antiporta incisione con ritratto della Santa inciso da Raffaello D'Angelo e all'interno cinque planches. Bellissimo esemplare stampato sulla pregiata carta azzurra. Insieme all'opera un'immaginetta del 1830 circa che rappresenta Santa Filomena. Collazionato e risultato completo. Raro, alto valore Copertina in mezza pelle con titolo in oro al dorso in discrete condizioni generali con usure e parti mancanti ai margini e dorso. Legatura in buone condizioni. All'interno le pagine si presentano in buone condizioni con fioriture e gore d'umidità marginali. Piccolo segno di tarlo all'ultima pagina di indice senza perdita di testo. Beauitufl edition of 1834 of this scarce work about the Saint Filomena from Rome (IV century) written by the Canon Francesco di Lucia. The work is made up of three tomes boudn together and it is complete. The name and cult of Saint Filomena was born with the finding in 1802 of some bones in a grave in the Catacombe di Priscilla in Rome. For a fault of interpretation in the grave, Saint Filomena was considered martyre, after that taken away from the calendar in 1960's. In 1805 the Canon de Lucia asks for some relics of remainings found in May 1802 (reduced in dust and fragments) for the building of a new altar in his church in Mugnano del Cardinale. The remainings, transported from Rome to Naples arrived in Mugnano the 11th of August. In 1827 the Pope Leone XII gave to the church of Mugnano three terracotta slabs. In the work De Lucia describes the wonder accompained the arrival of relics in the church as miracles (people not died), usage of senses, prodigious cares, favours, apparitions of Santa Filomena, the images of the Saint changed, changes in items belonged to the Saint etc... In the frontspice engraving with the portrait of the Saint engraved by Raffaello D'Angelo and five planches inside. Very beautiful copy published in the precious blue paper. Toghether with the work a little image of 1830 circa representing Saint Philomena. Collationed and complete. Scarce copy, high value Half leather cover with golden title in the spine in fair general conditions with wearings and missing parts in the edges and spine; paltes almost detached. Binding in good conditions with cracks. Inside pages are in good conditions with foxings and humidity stains. Little worming in the last page of the index with no loss of text.

        Illustrations of the Game Birds of North America Chiefly the size of Nature.

      Edinburgh, Frazer & Co.; Dublin, William Curry Jnr. & Co.; Glasgow, John Smith & Son; London, Smith, Elder & Co., 1834. Folio (546 x 410mm). With engraved title by James Turvey, engraved dedication, and 16 finely hand-coloured engraved plates after Thomas Brown, A.Rider, J.B.Kidd, and others, engraved by W.H.Lizars and others, a few minor restorations to plate edges, plates laid on old tissue and watermarked 1831-1835. Publisher's brown cloth gilt with embossed pattern, morocco title-label on upper cover, rebacked to match (in a modern cloth box). Extremely rare. The scarcest book on American Game-Birds. According to Walter Faxon only three copies of this work could be found in 1919, and only one copy (with 15 of the 16 plates) is listed as having sold at auction in the last one hundred years (Sotheby's 10 December 1909, lot 951). Although this work essentially contains a selection of the plates from Brown's larger work 'Illustrations of American Ornithology', 1831-35, they are coloured in a softer, less bold manner that appears to give a more life like appearance. The 'Game Birds' was issued before the completion of the 'American Ornithology'. Zimmer, p.102; Fine Bird Books (1990) p. 82; W.Faxon, The Auk 36, 1919, p. 626; Nissen IVB, 153.

        Spécies Général et Iconographie des Coquilles Vivantes, comprenant la collection du Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle de Paris, la collection Lamarck, celle du Prince Masséna et les decouvertes récentes des Voyageurs.

      Paris, Rousseau/ Baillière, (1834-1880). 11 volumes (bound in 13). Royal-8vo. With 902 (5 in coloured copies) fine handcoloured engraved plates. Later speckled calf with 2 red gilt lettered labels. One of the most desirable works on shells. It was published over a period of almost half a century and especially the last 27 parts published by P. Fischer from 1873-1879 are rare. In the monograph on the Turbo by Fischer published in 1873 the text (128 pages) is in a recent reprint as well as plates 37-42. The 11 page text of the genus Phasianella is also in a reprint. Some plates of the genus Turbo have been trimmed with some slight loss of the illustration. A few plates have the upper right corner very slightly chipped. Kiener made use of the famous Delessert collection and that of the Natural History Museum of Paris, together the largest and most varied fund of conchological material on the continent. "He soon put it to good use; and in 1834 he published the first part of his 'Spécies ...' This exquisitely illustrated iconography, started before the Sowerbys and Reeve began to issue theirs, appeared at intervals up to 1879, when eleven volumes had been completed. All devoted to the illustration of marine gastopods with the exception of the tenth volume, which includes a monograph on the bivalve genus Thracia. The eleventh volume is the work of Paul Fischer. All the illustrations are by celebrated French engravers and artists of the day." (Dance. Hist. of Shell Collecting p. 137). This beautifully illustrated iconography on shells is still a valuable work of reference because of the new species described in it. The work is complete with 902 handcoloured plates as indicated in the last volume, where the publisher 'Ballière' informs the reader that the work consists of 165 parts with a total of 902 plates. Nissen, however, calls for a 20bis plate in the Cypraea section which, indeed, some copies have. Most likely only the early issues have this 'bis' plate, which was probably replaced by a corrected plate 20 in later issues. In the text this 'bis' plate is not mentionned. Provenance: With the occasional stamp of Richard I. Johnson. Nissen ZBI, 2183; B.M.(Nat. Hist.)II, 978.

Ainsi, pour les Etats-Unis, on suit les développements des établissements de "Nazareth" à Dayton (Ohio), fondée en 1849, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Sanduski, Pittsburg, San Antonio (Texas) (depuis 1852), la fondation à Hawaï (Iles Sandwich) en 1883 ; on peut y suivre tous les développements de l'Oeuvre marianiste, dont leurs missions en Chine et au Japon, avec la longue (76 pages) et passionnante circulaire n° 47 du Père Simler (consacré à la "Fondation à Tôkyô" du 19 mai 1888 ; le père Simler y relate tout le détail de son voyage de fondation et de son installation au Japon, avec ses jugements sur la société japonaise et son système éducatif). On trouve d'autres circulaires du plus haut intérêt telle la fondation de la mission à Hawaï (1883, circulaire n° 28 du Père Simler) et l'importante "Notice historique" du même retraçant l'origine des missions les plus anciennes. Entre 1900 et 1945, les circulaires se recentrent plus sur l'organisation générale de la Société de Marie (les développements sur les missions étant plus spécifiquement traités dans la revue "l'Apôtre de Marie"), puis après la guerre, elles évoquent à nouveau plus précisément les développements missionnaires. On lira par exemple avec grand profit la circulaire n°6 du Père Juergens (1948) relative à sa visite au Japon, 2 ans après la fin des hostilités, avec le compte-rendu de sa visite à l'Empereur, une présentation de l'état physique et moral du Japon et le détail des visites à Tokyo (Gyosei Chu Gakko et Akebono Gaku), Nagasaki (Kaisei Chu-Gakko), Urakami (Nagasaki), Osaka (Meisei Chu-Gakko), Fukuoka (Taisei Chu-Gakko), Sapporo (Kosei Chu-Gakko)n Gora (Park Hotel), Jindai Mura (Shudoin), Kioyose Mura (Kiyoto Gakunen), ou encore la circulaire n° 23 de 1953, du Père Juergens, relatant sa visite aux missions d'Amérique : Honolulu, Waikuku, San Francisco, Alameda, Gardena, Los Angeles, Santa Cruz, San Antonio, Victoria et Sommerset (Texas), Kirkwood, Glencoe, Clayton, Saint Louis, Belleville, Chicago, Milwaukee, Galesville, Dayton, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Fairborn, Covington et Hamilton dans l'Ohio, Pittsburgh et Philadelphie (Pennsylvanie), Marcy, Beacon Brooklyn, Mineola et Tockaway Park (New York), Baltimore et Washington, San Juan et Ponce (Puerto Rico), S.

      6 Bl., 272 S. Mit 45 lithographischen Tafeln (davon 1 doppelblattgroß und 3 mit beweglichen Teilen) von Hermann, Mützel und Tempeltei nach Zeichnungen von Schirmer sowie 4 gestochenen Faltplänen (davon 2 mehrfach gefaltet) von Voss und Bibel. Textband: Späterer Halblederband mit Rückenvergoldung und goldgeprägtem Rückenschild. 21 x 13,5 cm. - Tafelband: Dekorativer Lederband d. Zt. mit ornamentaler Rückenvergoldung, goldgeprägtem Rückentitel sowie gold- und blindgeprägten Deckelfileten. 35 x 49 cm. Ornamentstichsammlung 3389. Goedeke XIV 4, 717, 445. Graesse V 504. Erste Ausgabe des bedeutendsten deutschen romantischen Garten- und Landschaftswerkes. Die prachtvollen Tafeln geben einen wirklichkeitsnahen Eindruck von der großartigen Parkanlage von Muskau (dem Stammsitz der Familie Pückler-Muskau) in der Oberlausitz wieder. Bei der Planung dieser Parkanlage, dem schöpferischen Lebenswerk des Fürsten, nahm dieser häufig den Rat und das Urteil Schinkels in Anspruch. Durch Nummerierungsfehler, Änderungen während des Drucks und beigegebene Tafeln als Ausschnittbogen für die beweglichen Teile, weichen die Angaben über die Anzahl der Tafeln häufig voneinander ab. Vollständig ist der Tafelband jedoch mit 45 Tafeln und 4 Plänen, wobei hier die Tafeln II, XI und XXXIVa mit beweglichen Teilen versehen sind. Diese Teile zeigen durch Alternativentwürfe reizvolle landschaftliche Ausblicke. Die Angabe auf dem Titelblatt "44 Ansichten und 4 Grundpläne" beruht darauf, dass die Tafeln bis XXXXIV nummeriert sind und die doppelt gezählte Tafel XXXIV offenbar erst nach Drucklegung des Werkes eingeschoben wurde. Textband am Vorderdeckel mit breitem Tesastreifen; etwas stock- und braunfleckig. Der schöne Tafelband etwas berieben, die Ecken leicht bestoßen. Tafeln etwas gebräunt und stockfleckig, die ersten beiden Tafeln mit Knickspur. Ein Faltplan lose und stärker stockfleckig. - Komplettes Exemplar mit den empfindlichen und daher meist fehlenden beweglichen Teilen für die Alternativentwürfe.

        Sieben Bücher über natürliche Geburtshülfe.

      8°. VIII, 469 S., 1 S. Leinwandband der Zeit mit rotem, goldgeprägtem Rückenschild. Lesky 83. - Boër, Johann Lukas (ursprünglich J. L. Boogers), (1751-1835) begründete die Geburtshilfe in Österreich als selbstständiges Fach. Er lehnte die übertriebene Anwendung der Kunsthilfe bei der Geburt ab und verwies auf die Naturkräfte des Körpers. Unter seiner Leitung in der Wiener Geburtshilflichen Klinik lag die Mortalitätsrate beim Kindbettfieber unter einem Prozent. - "In 1723 forceps had come into general use. Delighted with the beneficial invention, French and German obstetricians ... applied them on every occasion, even when there was no need for them. One might have thought that 'Nature had abandoned its delivery job and left it to the obstetrician's instrument' (Boer). Against this busy use of instruments Boer employed his patient procedure of waiting and relying on the natural forces of the organism. In limiting instrumental and manual intervention to the cases in which such assistance was indicated and in 'restoring the delivery power of Nature to its rights,' he became the founder of the new obstetrical natural method ... His guiding principle ... was that the child should be received from the mother, not torn from her" (Lesky, Vienna Medical School, pp. 52-53). - Titel leicht stockfleckig. Leinenbezug am Rücken mit kleiner Fehlstelle. Rückenkanten beschabt. Die ersten Blätter leicht stockfleckig.

        West Point, from above Washington Valley looking down the River

      New York: Parker & Clover, 1834. Hand-coloured aquatint after George Cooke. In good condition, but laid onto thin wove paper. 20 1/8 x 27 1/16 inches. First state of this spectacular image of the Hudson and West Point: focusing 'on the beauty of the Hudson River and the mountains that border it on either side ... a celebration of nature, highlighting the ever-changing drama staged by mountains, water, and sky' (Deak) William James Bennett (c. 1787-1844) was born in England and received his training at the Royal Academy. He emigrated to the United States in 1826, and is best known for his views of American cities, including the Hudson Valley Region, Niagara Falls, and numerous port cities such as New York, Charleston, and Buffalo. With the arrival of William Bennett and several other émigré artists such as William Guy Wall, and John Hill, the quality of aquatint engraving in America was elevated to a level equaling, or perhaps even surpassing, that of European printmakers. This print was published at the beginning of an important period in the history of American topographical-view making. 'Bennett etched four prints after paintings by George Cooke (1793-1849) in his series of views of American cities ... American-born George Cooke was a prolific painter of portraits, views, and historical subjects. He painted this scene of West Point in 1832 after he had left New York ... for .. the Catskill mountains' (Deak William James Bennett p.78). 'Cooke benefited from the remarkable craftsmanship of ... Bennett, who endowed the rendering with a radiant quality' (Deak Picturing America p.277). R.A. De Silva William James Bennett Painter and Engraver 1970 pp.68-70; Deak William James Bennett Master of the Aquatint View New York, 1988, checklist number 22; Deak Picturing America 412; Stauffer 151
