      Mannheim, 1834. 2 S., 4°. [An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875)]. - „Eisenlohr studierte 1817 an der Universität Heidelberg Mathematik und Physik. 1819 wurde Eisenlohr zum Professor für Mathematik und Physik am Lyceum in Mannheim ernannt. 1840 übernahm er am Polytechnischen Institut in Karlsruhe eine Professur für Physik. Als Wissenschaftler wurde Eisenlohr mit optischen Untersuchungen bekannt. Diese Forschungsergebnisse veröffentlichte er in seinem Lehrbuch der Physik. Eisenlohr gründete die erste Gewerbeschule in Baden in Mannheim und 1847 eine Schule für Uhrmacher im Schwarzwald. Bis zu seiner Pensionierung 1865 förderte Eisenlohr im Großherzogtum maßgeblich und erfolgreich das Schulwesen; besonders die Berufsschulen lagen ihm sehr am Herzen“ (Wikipedia). --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz. Während eines halbjährigen Urlaubs im Jahre 1838 besuchte er chemische Institute in Göttingen, Heidelberg, Frankfurt und Paris. In Gießen machte er sich bei Justus von Liebig mit der organischen Elementaranalyse vertraut. Ab 1843 arbeitete er als Professor für technische Chemie am Polytechnischen Institut der Universität Wien und übernahm dort 1845 die Professur für allgemeine Chemie. Schrötter war neben Baumgartner, Ettingshausen und Haidinger einer der Begründer der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien und wurde 1850 ihr Generalsekretär. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina wählte Schrötter 1856 zu ihrem Mitglied. Ab 1868 leitete er das österreichische Hauptmünzamt und wurde gleichzeitig zum Ministerialrat ernannt. Er wurde 1874 in den Ruhestand versetzt und eröffnete in seiner Wohnung ein Privatlaboratorium, in dem er Studien über Edelmetalle betrieb. 1875 starb er in Wien. Schrötter hat in seinem Leben ca. 60 wissenschaftliche Publikationen verfasst. Ab 1845 beschäftigte Schrötter sich intensiv mit Phosphor. 1848 gelang ihm der Nachweis der schon von Berzelius geäußerten Vermutung, dass roter Phosphor eine allotrope Modifikation des weißen Phosphors, nicht aber eine Phosphorverbindung ist. Schrötter wandelte weißen Phosphor durch Erhitzen in roten um, den man zeitweise Schrötterschen Phosphor nannte. Sein Verfahren zur Darstellung desselben revolutionierte die Streichholzindustrie, wo roter Phosphor schon bald als Bestandteil der Reibflächen genutzt wurde. Er war ein Organisator in Industrie und Wissenschaft sowie Berater bei den Vorbereitungen zur Novara-Expedition und zur Österreich-Ungarischen Nordpolexpedition. - Versand D: 12,00 EUR Eisenlohr, Schrötter, Physik, Optik, Brief, Letter, Lettre, Briefe, Autograph, Autographe, Autographen, Autograf, Autografe, Autografen, Signatur, Signiert, Signed, Signature, Unterschrift, Eigenhändig, Handschrift, Handschriften, Manuscript, Manuscrit, ALS, A.L.S., LAS, L.A.S.

        The Perils of Pearl Street, Including A Taste of the Dangers of Wall Street by A Late Merchant

      New York: Betts and Anstice, and Peter Hill, 1834 - First Edition. Wright (I) 1066. Issued anonymously. PublisherÕs cloth with a leather spine label; very good; in a custom clamshell box. An early object lesson on the risks of financial speculation and trading. With the opening of the Erie Canal and nascent railroads, New York had only recently succeeded Philadelphia as an American financial center. The publication of this book preceded the shattering event that was the Panic of 1837, and is among the earliest print references to Wall Street as a generic term for high finance. While widely held by libraries, this book is seldom available in a first edition, and even then is often found rebound. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The United States and Canada, in 1832, 1833, and 1834.

      London. Richard Bentley. 1834. 8vo, 22.3cm, the First Edition, in 2 volumes, vii,433 & vii,418pp., with 2 lithograph frontis plates, in later half tan brown calf, gilt ruled raised bands, full gilt decorations and borders in the panels, double crimson and dark green crushed morocco labels, marbled boards and endpapers, t.e.g., signed binding by "Riviere & Son", a fine set attractively bound. (cgc) T.P.L. 181, Lande 17, Sabin 1943, Dow I -p86. Howes. A-304, Waterston p56. Dionne II 1093, Swedish Arfwedson visited the United States (including New York, Massachusetts, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Georgia. Ohm. Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi and Washington) before travelling into Canada (through Niagara Falls, Toronto, Quebec and Montreal). Among the more well-known features of his narrative is a description of the Shaker community at Lebanon Springs. Like his contemporary, Alexis de Tocqueville, Arfwedson describes the American penal system, as well as provides a broader discussion of social and economic questions, including slavery.A contemporary review praised the work: "We are pleased with this work, it shall be our guide if ever we visit the United State. It steers clear of the aristocracy of Captain Hall, the flippancies and sneers of Mrs. Trollope, and the narrow-mindedness of a host of other travellers; whilst it freely yet liberally speaks of all that accomplished author observed. One is pleased to find a man entering upon the important business, which he has executed so well, that of fairly and manfully characterizing a great nation, in all its bearing and institutions, with a generous, we would say, a capacious spirit; at the very outset deeply impressed with the value and magnitude of the subject, and determined to persevere, throughout the course of a careful scrutiny, to accord room for the exercise of certain peculiarities which its posture and history have induced" (Monthly Review, 1835. Volume 1, No. 1., pp13-27). Swedish Arfwedson took a wearisome trip from Newark to Prescott, dropped in to Montreal, and pronounced Canadians in a feverish state, with restless demagogues and English governors daily losing their popularity. "Principles of freedom from the neighbouring state penetrate perceptibly among the rising generations, and the fore of example will sooner or later induce the Canadians to hoist the standard of Rebellion".. Signed by Author(s). 1st Edition. Hardcover.

        Charles Babbage's Calculating Engine. Edinburgh Review

      Edinburgh Review, 1834, 1st edition, 1834. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. The Babbage article is 65 pages, with textual tables, 5 textual figures, etc. Octavo. The complete volume 59 (545pp, index). Bound in a late 20th century purple buckram binding, gilt lettered. Very sound and firm throughout, no cracked joints or loose pages. Ex university library, with their stamp to the rear of the title page, and tickets on the front endpapers, and class number label to the foot of the spine, otherwise quite unmarked throughout. Overall a very clean and sound volume. Lardner's article represents a chief source of information regarding Babbage's invention. A review of seven publications, from Babbage, and the Royal Society it presents in an accessible form an understanding of Babbage's mechanical notations and the basic workings of the machine. The Edinburgh Review article proved influential to other interested scientists including Pehr Georg Scheutz who in due course was able to build a calculating machine based upon Babbage's principles, but at a fraction of the cost. Lardner himself appears to have been most interested in mathematical table errors, to the extent of suggesting that Babbage's machine was the only possible means of eradicating them. The Edinburgh Review article was in effect a published version of a lecture series conducted by Lardner in the north of England in early 1834, where Lardner had developed an accessible means of explaining the Calculating Machine to a wider audience. He wrote the article with some help and support from Babbage. A key article regarding arguably the founding father of computing science. Quantity Available: 1.

      Kjøbenhavn [i.e. Copenhagen], 1834-36. Large 4to. The entire volume of Interimsblade (135 in all) present, with the joint title-page and the contents leaf. Bound in a simple half leather binding with marbled paper over boards. Spine with a little soiling, otherwise a fine and well preserved copy. Each "Interimsblad takes up 4 pp.. Kierkegaard's contributions: I: ab. 1 p.; II: 2 3/4 pp.; III: 4 pp.; IV: 4 pp.. Scarce first printing of Kierkegaard's very first publication - his polemical debut "Also a Defence of the High Abilities of the Woman" - also bound with his second, third and fourth publications, which all deal with contemporary press issues, primarily freedom of the press. Danish politics in the 1830'es was dominated by the slow implementation of rules for election for and assembly of the Estates of the Realm. But as they were only advisory, the papers and periodicals were not allowed to publish their opinions. In response to this, a liberal opposition arose around the two papers polemic papers "Kjøbenhavnsposten" and "Fædrelandet". The first point on the agenda for the Liberals was the fight for freedom of the press and the abolishment of censorship.This fight for freedom of the press was something that found resonance with Copenhagen academics, and it stirred up a lively activity in Copenhagen. In 1835, active Liberals had encouraged King Frederik VI to support freedom of press, but had received an answer stating that he alone was able to evaluate what was truly the best for the people and the state. After this answer from the king, the "Society for the Correct Use of the Freedom of press" was founded by moderate liberals and young liberals, and at the end of the year almost 2.300 members had joined. It was in the midst of all this that the 21-year old Søren Kierkegaard, then a student of theology, had his debut, with political-literary articles in "Kjøbenhavns flyvende post", in Interimsbladende, which were published separately. But as opposed to the predominantly liberal views of almost all other contributors, Kierkegaard's articles expressed distinctly conservative views. His very first publication [the present nr. I], "Også et Forsvar for Qvindens høie Anlæg" [Also a Defense of the High Abilities of the Woman] constitutes an unpolished ironic apology for the liberation of women. This article is published in December 1834 and is signed "A.". His three following publications [present nrs. II, III & IV] all concern the question of freedom of press and constitute satirical polemics against the two liberal papers "Kjøbenhavnsposten" and "Fædrelandet", against Orla Lehmann, the upcoming star of the liberal youth, and against all liberals in general. These three articles were published in February and April 1836. The two first are signed "B.", and the third, signed "S. Kierkegaard", constitutes the very first publication in his own name. As is well known, the names under which Kierkegaard later publishes comes to play a significant role in his authorship and was extremely thought out. The foundation of this play with the reader is thus laid in the present publications, in which he begins to develop the style for which he later gained worldwide renown.Common for all four of his first publications is the attempt at polemic and satirical power, at literary elegance and at a masterful and ceremonious critique of the prose of the opponent. - All something that comes to be dominant means in all of his later writings."Kjøbenhavns flyvende Post" [The Flying Post of Copenhagen] was one of the most important and most widely read cultural and literary periodicals of the period. It was edited and run by Johan Ludvig Heiberg (1791-1860), arguably the most famous cultural persona during the Danish Golden Age. He played a more significant role than any other author or thinker during this period and was the leading character of literature and philosophy in the 19th century. He introduced many German thinkers to Denmark, most importantly Hegel - who Kierkegaard would later oppose -, and he was part of almost all intellectual discussions of the Danish Golden Age. He was also a patron for many leading figures of the era. Interestingly, several people thought that the first of the article on the freedom of the press was written by Heiberg. This was of dubious merit to Kierkegaard himself, as he was opposed to the circles around Heiberg and the Hegelian environment, but it was still this article - and this miscomprehension - that gave him a claim to fame. Another paper claimed that this "priceless" article had been written by Heiberg himself, who "had written many witty things, but never anything as witty as this." Also Kierkegaard's professor of philosophy, Poul Martin Møller, to whom Kierkegaard was very devoted and to whom he dedicated his first book (the only person outside of his family that Kierkegaard ever wrote a printed dedication for), loved the article and assumed that Heiberg had written it. "He (Kierkegaard) had a lifelong antipathy toward the press, though he himself published reviews in various papers. His mistrust of the press as a legitimate organ of communication was based on several observations, one of which was that the press was the voice of the masses, rather than that of the individual. He viewed that voice with great skepticism and sarcasm in later years, averring that the crowd... even if technically correct... is wrong by the very fact of being the crowd. The truth can only be stated and practiced as individuals, especially as individuals before God. Admittedly, Kierkegaard's view of the masses was not well developed at this juncture."(D. Antony Storm).Himelstrup 1, 2, 3 & 4

Inner hinge visible to vol. I an partially visible to vol. III, first gathering of vol. I, partially loose at head. Pages foxed but generally a clean and sound copy of Edgeworth's final novel and one of her favourite works. This work was seen as a break through novel and one that heralded in the transition from earlier 18th century novels to the mainstream movement of 19th century fiction. From Wikipedia, the quotation is from one of Edgeworth's biographers. "It was in 1830–when already past sixty years of age–that Miss Edgeworth set to work upon the last, and what, at the time it was written, was possibly the most successful of all her novels–namely, Helen. Any reader who will take it down from its shelf, and glance over it, will quickly perceive that it is 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."

        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.

        Statement of some new Principles on the Subject of Political Economy exposing the Fallacies of the System of Free Trade, and of some other Doctrines maintained in the "Wealth of Nations.

      Boston: Hilliard, Gray, and Co.,, 1834. Octavo (250 x 150 mm). Original pebble grain cloth-backed drab boards, neatly rebacked, new printed spine label, fore and lower edges uncut, preserved in a custom made green morocco backed cloth box. Printed exlibris of Amos Lawrence of Boston and the library of Maryville College, Tennessee, to front pastedown. Corners worn, one or two splash marks to boards, inner hinges strengthened. Occasional light spotting and one short marginal tear; a very good copy of a scarce book. First edition, scarce and often overlooked, of "one of the highlights of classical economic theory" (K.H. Hennings in The New Palgrave). A native of Scotland, Rae (1796-1872) emigrated to Canada, and thence to America, where this, his only publication, was written. Originally intended as an appendix to a larger work on the Natural History and Statistics of Canada, Rae "succeeded in creating a theory of capital to which Böhm-Bawerk and others were indebted; in his lifetime some small recognition from J. S. Mill was almost the only notice he obtained" (Who's Who in Economics), although Fisher, Wicksell and Ã…kerman were all subsequently familiar with his work, Fisher dedicating one of his main works to Rae. His work "also influenced Schumpeter's (1911) concept of economic development, and Veblen's (1899) notion of conspicuous consumption." (Hennings, ibid.).

        Bibliotheca Heberiana. Catalogue of the Library of the Late Richard Heber, Esq., Parts I-XII

      Sotheby and Son; Evans; Wheatley 1834-1836, London - Twelve auction catalogues of the truly massive library formed by one of the greatest bibliophiles of nineteenth-century England. (A thirteenth part of the English sales (Wheatley, 1837) is not present here.) "As Heber was an accomplished scholar as well as a collector, his books were chosen with ability and judgment. His library was particularly rich in the works of the early English poets, and his collection of Greek and Latin Classics, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and French books was very extnsive and choice, but he had a great objection to large paper copies, because they occupied so much room on his shelves." (Fletcher, English Book Collectors, pp. 340-1.) Heber maintained his collections in various houses: at Pimlico and at York Street in London, and in Oxford, Paris, Ghent, Brussels and Antwerp. Several of the volumes in this group have interesting and varied provenance. The twelve parts are: Part I (Sotheby and Son, 1834): [iv], 388 pp., original paper-covered boards, printed title label and presentation signature from London bookseller HENRY BOHN on the cover; front hinge starting, but firm. Part II (Sotheby and Son, 1834): xii, 363 pp., modern quarter brown cloth with paper sides, original printed title label mounted on cover; with A. N. L. MUNBY’s booklabel on front pastedown. Part III (Sotheby and Son, 1834): [iv], 295 pp., original paper-covered boards, printed title label and signature of the DUKE OF BUCCLEUCH, a Roxburghe Club member, on the cover; light edgewear to boards. Part IV (Evans, 1834): [iii-x], 355 pp., original paper-covered boards, printed title label and signature of the DUKE OF BUCCLEUCH on the cover. Part V (Wheatley, 1835): [iv], 257 pp., modern quarter brown cloth with paper sides, original printed title label (a little abraded) mounted on cover, with slip in contemporary hand listing prices realized for several lots. Part VI (Evans, 1835): [iv], 314 pp., modern quarter brown cloth with paper sides, original printed title label mounted on cover. Part VII (Evans, 1835): [iv], 306 pp., modern quarter brown cloth with paper sides, original printed title label mounted on cover. Part VIII (Evans, 1836): [iv], 170, original paper-covered boards, printed title label and signature of the DUKE OF BUCCLEUCH on the cover; light edgewear to boards. Part IX (Sotheby and Son, 1836): [iv], 195, modern quarter brown cloth with paper sides, original printed title label mounted on cover; an unopened copy. Part X (Sotheby and Son, 1836): [iv], 117, original paper-covered boards, printed title label on cover; priced in contemporary hand. Laid in is a manuscript note to MARY CHOLMONDELEY, the English novelist, whose great-uncle was Reginald Heber, brother of Richard Heber); chipping to spine, with some loss, and light soiling and edgewear to boards. Part XI (Evans, 1836): [iv], 189, modern quarter brown cloth with paper sides, original printed title label mounted on cover. Part XII (Wheatley, 1836): [iv], 83, modern quarter brown cloth and paper sides, original printed title label mounted on cover.

        [Aesop] The Fables of Aesop, and Others: For the Improvement of Youth with Instructive Applications

      London: J. M'Gowan, [1834]. First edition thus. Offered here are two separate volumes (each of which contains both volume 1 and volume 2 as called for) of this scarce 1834 edition of Aesop's Fables: London, Printed for J. M'Gowan and Sons. The first, (#2499a) is bound in contemporary brown marbled paper covered boards, black calf spine and tips. This volume has all 100 plates as called for, half of which are bound together at the end of volume 1 and the other half bound together at the end of volume two. A very good, clean and tight set. This copy lacks both title pages which are replaced with facsimiles. The second volume, which has the original title pages to both volumes, has only 91 of 100 plates and is in a more modern binding. This volume contains multiple leaves of facsimiles in the text, as well facsimiles for the 9 missing plates. Together, a complete volume easily achieved and thus here representing a wonderful opportunity to form a complete set of an exceedingly scarce and important Aesop edition.

        [Drop-head title:] Schoolcraft and Allen – Expedition to North-West Indians.

      Wasington, D.C.: [printed by] Gales & Seaton [for the US War Dept.],, 1834. Letter from the Secretary of War transmitting a Map and Report of Lieut. Allen and H. B. [sic] Schoolcraft's visit to the Northwest Indians in 1832. Octavo. Modern plain paper wrappers. Housed in a custom made green linen chemise and green quarter morocco slipcase, gilt lettered spine. Engraved folding map by Drayton after Allen. Embossed ownership stamp on front cover of Diana Lanier Smith. Map with neat professional repair to short closed-tear, map slightly foxed, letterpress lightly toned, two leaves awkwardly folded at foot. A very good copy. First edition of this scarce pamphlet, which is important for including the "earliest map of the true source of the Mississippi River. [It] depicts Sioux and Chippewa boundary lines as established by the treaty of 1825; Indian villages, towns and placenames; trading posts and portages; the route of Lieutenant Allen. The dividing ridge separating the watersheds of the Mississippi and Red rivers is illustrated by a continuous chain of hills" (Schwartz & Ehrenberg, The Mapping of America, 1980, p. 247). This is the first appearance of Allen's famous map, its later appearance in Schoolcraft's Narrative of an Expedition... to Itasca Lake (1834) was on a smaller scale. "In 1832, ethnologist Henry Schoolcraft organized a multipurpose journey to Minnesota to follow up on the observations he had made while accompanying the 1820 expedition of Lewis Cass, governor of Michigan Territory. As Indian affairs agent to the northern tribes, Schoolcraft was concerned that the frequent Ojibwe-Dakota skirmishes would greatly hinder further settlement of the territories. Lieutenant James Allen, an infantry officer detailed to topographical duty, joined Schoolcraft to make the map and to serve as naturalist. In addition, Schoolcraft had been ordered to conduct a thorough study of the fur trade and to vaccinate the Indians against smallpox. Schoolcraft and Allen, along with Dr. George Houghton and about thirty voyageurs and infantrymen, followed the Cass-Schoolcraft route to the head of Lake Superior. After three weeks, they reached Upper Red Cedar (Cass Lake), where they enlisted the aid of an Ojibwe leader, Oza Windib (Yellow Hand), who generously offered his assistance... The Schoolcraft map shows the expedition beginning at the trading house of the American Fur Company on Big Sandy Lake. the group followed the well-established trading route through the marshes along the Mississippi, north-west to the villages of Leech Lake. The map indicates that the water was high and that the men could actually canoe through the flooded marshes. At Leech Lake, they quickly moved along another well-known route to the headwaters of the Mississippi, finding the west branch first. many features are named, though Lake Itasca is merely called 'the source of the Mississippi.' The map's system of hachuring, or shading with short lines, adds a dramatic effect to the divides between the watersheds of the Red and Mississippi rivers that is not so obvious on the landscape itself. The mapmaker's hachures also exaggerate the heights of land north and west of Lake Superior, which are named the Cabotian Mountains... The map shows a Spirit Lake that is the source of the Rum River and separate from Mille Lacs" (Lanegran & Urness, Minnesota on the Map, 2008, pp. 32-34). From the library of the celebrated collector of early Americana, Thomas Winthrop Streeter, with his discreet oval book label laid-in.

        Illustrations of Political Economy

      [by William Clowes for] Charles Fox, London 1834 - Nine volumes. 12mo. [145 x 90 x 225 mm]. Bound in contemporary half black calf, marbled paper sides, the spines divided into five panels, lettered in the second and numbered in the fourth on burgundy labels, the other panels with a gilt centre tool, buff endleaves, lightly sprinkled edges. (Refurbished where rubbed). [With] Poor Laws and Paupers Illustrated. First Collected Edition. One volume (of two). 12mo. [145 x 90 x 33 mm]. Uniformly bound with above. London: [by W. Clowes for] Charles Fox, 1833. [And] Illustrations of Taxation. First Collected Edition. 12mo. [146 x 85 x 23 mm]. Uniformly bound with above. London: [by W. Clowes for] Charles Fox, 1834. Harriet Martineau (1802-1876) was born in Norwich, the daughter of a textile manufacturer. She was a precocious child, reading Milton by the age of seven and passionately interested in political economy by 14. Her family suffered financial ruin in 1829 and three years later she moved to London to earn her living as a writer. Almost at once she began a series of short didactic novels on social and economic matters. These were issued at monthly intervals and proved enormously successful, some selling as many as 10,000 copies. Her publisher soon realised the possibility of gathering these tales, first issued in printed wrappers, into collected sets, as here. Each of the nine volumes of Illustrations of Political Economy has a general title-page (all dated 1834) and contains two or three tales, totalling 25 in all, each with separate pagination and title-pages, variously dated 1832, 1833 and 1834. As is always the case in collected sets, the earliest titles are reprints. In this set the three stories in vol.1 are the third, second and second editions, but thereafter they are all first editions, which is most unusual. Included with this set are Martineau's two similar but less successful continuations, the first contains three stories (a fourth story, The Land's End is usually found in a separate volume which is not present in this set), and the second has five. These are all first edition sheets, with separate title-pages and pagination, bound up with general titles. There is a little spotting in places but it is a very good set.

      Guayaquil, Quito, San José, & Lima 1834-57 The history of Ecuador during the first generation after achieving independence from Spain was noteworthy for its ever-changing nature: politically part of New Granada, then a separate country; yearnings to be part of Peru; wars against Colombia for ownership of the Cauca region, and war against the Galapagos Islands for ownership of the giant tortoises; the trading off of the presidency between Flores and Rocafuerte; wild swings between rampant anti-clericalism and amicable church-state relations; promulgation of several radically different constitutions; and, finally, the institutionalization of political anarchy beginning in 1845 following the forced exile of President Flores. This offering contains original documents touching on many of these and other matters. All items in good+ or very good condition.

        The New Testament of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Translated out of the Latin Vulgate, diligently compared with the original Greek, and first published by the English college of Rheims, anno 1582. With the original preface, arguments and tables, marginal notes, and annotations. To which are now added an introductory essay and a complete topical and textual index.

      New York: Jonathan Leavitt 8vo (23 cm; 9"). [1] f., 458 pp.. 1834 (copyright 1833) First edition of this edition prepared for a Protestant audience; issued without a nihil obstat, it claims to be a faithful reprinting of the 1582 Rheims N.T., but it is most certainly not. As Hills explains, "This is a reprint in modernized spelling of the original edition of the Rheims NT, prepared for Protestants. O'Callaghan (p. 233–236) points out a good many errors in spite of the certificate of six clergymen that 'it is an exact and faithful copy of the original work without abridgment or addition, except that the Latin of a few phrases which were translated by the annotators, and some unimportant expletive words were undesignedly omitted'." => A vastly anti-Catholic work in its preface and apparatus, it calls itself "a book of reference for all persons who desire to comprehend genuine Popery." Binding: Publisher's green "contour" moiré cloth over boards with printed paper label on spine. Krupp's style Moi4. Bound as above; rebacked and most of original spine laid downwith hinges (inside) strengthened. Six-digit number stamped in lower margin of one preliminary page; moderate foxing, mostly in margins.

        Deux destinées. Drame en cinq actes.

      J. N. Barba, Libraire, Paris 1834 - In-8 (23 x 15,5 cm) de (8)-178 pp., demi-veau rouge, dos lisse orné, pièce de titre verte, couverture imprimée et dos conservés, entièrement non rogné (Devauchelle). Edition originale tirée à 150 exemplaires. Vignette sur bois gravée par Porret d'après Tony Johannot, tirée sur Chine. Première ouvrage de l'auteur qui finança lui-même l'édition ; la pièce ne fut jamais jouée. « De ses premières pièces de théâtre, Deux destinées (1834) est la seule sur laquelle les archives publiques nous renseignent de façon détaillée. Bien qu'elle paraisse sous l'enseigne de Barba, le bulletin de déclaration de l'imprimeur Duverger indique formellement qu'elle fut imprimée « pour le compte de M. Xavier Forneret ». En outre, le faible chiffre du tirage (150 ex.) tranche sur ceux des oeuvres dramatiques publiées à compte d'éditeur par Barba (350 à 500 ex.). Le compte d'auteur, rétorquera-t-on, est presque de rigueur dans le cas d'une première publication ; et de rappeler les tribulations de Lucien de Rubempré avec ses Marguerites et son Archer de Charles IX. Certes ; mais les circonstances sont ici toutes différentes. Il s'agit d'une oeuvre destinée au théâtre, voie royale de la notoriété littéraire dans les années 1830 ; or les usages de la librairie romantique prévoient que l'édition d'une pièce soit consécutive à sa représentation, et dépende étroitement du succès qu'elle remporte. Non seulement ce n'est pas ici le cas, mais encore l'auteur s'est-il targué de n'avoir pas effectué la moindre démarche pour faire monter Deux destinées : « Ce premier essai d'une jeune plume rapidement conduite n'a été refusé à aucun theâtre » (.) Le chiffre du tirage ne peut, pour sa part, être rapporté à un impératif financier : en 1834, Forneret, héritier depuis 1828 de la fortune paternelle, passe à bon droit pour un homme riche (.) Si Forneret était en mesure de s'offrir le caprice d'une publication, pourquoi se fût-il privé du plaisir supplémentaire de voir son nom associé à celui d'un grand éditeur parisien ? (.) L'auteur peut noter dès la préface de Vingt-trois, trente-cinq : « Il y a quelques mois, j'osai signer un drame en cinq actes, sous le titre de : Deux destinées. Plusieurs journaux me reprochèrent amèrement le luxe typographique donné à mon ouvrage, et surtout le chiffre 5, ayant à sa droite le mot prix, à sa gauche le mot francs, au dos, du papier, et devant lui des regards » (Jacques-Rémy Dahan, L'Homme noir et ses livres (Réflexions sur la production librariale de Xavier Forneret). Bel exemplaire soigneusement lavé et réencollé, parfaitement établi par Devauchelle. Vicaire III, 759. [Attributes: First Edition]
