        A Fragment on Mackintosh: being strictures on some passages in the dissertation by Sir James Mackintosh, prefixed to the Encyclopaedia Britannica.

      London: Baldwin and Cradock, 1835 - Octavo (217 x 131 mm). Recent quarter calf, red morocco label, marbled sides and edges. General light foxing. A very good tall copy. First edition of the last published work of James Mill (1773-1836), Scottish political philosopher, staunch Benthamite, a key influence on David Ricardo, and father of John Stuart Mill. The Fragment is a stinging attack on Sir James Mackintosh's Dissertation on the Progress of Ethical Philosophy (1830), in which both Bentham's radicalism and Mill's Essays on Government (1820) were assailed by the whig polemicist. "With its withering sarcasm and unremitting ridicule, Mill's Fragment is a disagreeable and intemperate book. But it makes an effective case for utilitarian politics and moral philosophy" (ODNB). John Stuart Mill's biographer Michael St. John Packe writes amusingly that "'Old Mill' was in a gingery mood, having just effectively satisfied his long-felt desire to 'touch up Mackintosh before I die'. He had touched him up to such effect that, out of common decency to the dead, he had been forced to hold up publication of the book until the old philosopher had mouldered in his grave a year or two" (The Life of John Stuart Mill, 1954, p. 197).

Strauß (1808-74) vgl. BBKL XI, 27ff. - RGG4 VII, 1774f. - Realenzyklopädie XIX, 76ff. - TRE XXXII, 241ff. - Eines der bedeutendsten Werke der Theologiegeschichte; kritischer Meilenstein der Leben-Jesu-Forschung und wichtige Station zur letztlich totalen Auflösung der Wahrheitsansprüche theologischer Hermeneutik im 20. Jahrhundert. - \"Sein Hauptwerk \'Das Leben Jesu, kritisch bearbeitet\' (Tübingen 1835) machte S. berühmt u. führte zu heftigen Auseinandersetzungen; damit war seine akademische Laufbahn zugleich beendet. In dieser Zeit erwies sich S. als radikaler Vertreter der spekulativen Theologie. Er versucht darin, \'an Stelle der veralteten supranaturalen u. natürlichen Betrachtungsweise der Geschichte Jesu eine neue zu setzen\', nämlich die \'mystische\', da in den Evangelien, abgesehen von einem \'einfachen Gerüst des Lebens Jesu\' durchgehend die \'mythischen\', vor allem \'messianischen\' Vorstellungen des AT auf Jesus übertragen seien, so daß die Evangelienerzählungen nichts anderes seien als \'geschichtsartige Einkleidungen urchristlicher Ideen, gebildet in der absichtslos dichtenden Sage\'\" (BBKL). - \"Das wirkungsgeschichtlich bedeutendste Werk von Strauß ist sein Leben Jesu, das für viele Jahre die theologische Diskussion bestimmte und zu einem der am meisten gelesenen theologischen Bücher avancierte. Ausgangspunkt für Strauß\' kritischen Ansatz war seine Hegel-Rezeption [... ]. Seine radikale Kritik wandte sich gegen die supranaturalistische und rationalistisch-pragmatische Betrachtungsweise und setzte dagegen die mythische Ansicht. Strauß verstand den Begriff des Mythos, den er aus der aufklärerischen historisch-kritischen Bibelauslegung kommend und in der alttestamentlichen Forschung vorfand, als Fortsetzung der allegorischen Auslegung und verband ihn mit der Hegelschen Religionsphilosophie [...]. Auf knapp 1.400 Seiten vollzog Strauß eine \'spekulative Entmythologisierung\' der Evangelien, um nach der Eliminierung des Mythos dessen Wahrheitsgehalt zu interpretieren [...]. In der dritten Auflage (1838/39) rezipiert Strauß die Einwände seiner Kritiker und stellt das Leben Jesu positiver dar: Jesus erscheint als religiöses Genie. Im Schlußabschnitt vermittelt Strauß ferner Gattungs- und Geniechristologie. Später distanzierte er sich von dieser \'Selbstvernichtung des Werkes\' (Strauß, GS I, 5) und kehrte zu seinen ursprünglichen Ansichten zurück\" (T.K. Kuhn in TRE). - Zur Wirkungsgeschichte ebenda: \"Das Leben Jesu löste eine unumgängliche exegetische, theologische und religionsphilosophische Diskussion aus, deren grundsätzliche Fragen die Theologie bis in die Gegenwart beschäftigen [ ] Die daraus resultierenden exegetischen und dogmatischen Auseinandersetzungen lösten einen produktiven Diskurs über die Fragen nach den Quellen des Lebens Jesu und der Christologie aus, förderten eine intensive Erforschung des Urchristentums und schufen somit eine neue Forschungssituation. Deshalb kommt Strauß speziell in der neutestamentlichen Wissenschaftsgeschichte eine zentrale Bedeutung zu. In seinem Leben Jesu formulierte er Gedanken, an denen sich im 20. Jh. der Streit um die Entmythologisierung entzünden sollte.\" Karl Barth z.B. erklärte, dass Strauss \"die Theologie vor eine Reihe von Fragen gestellt habe, zu denen sie, wie zu denen Feuerbachs, vielleicht bis heute noch nicht durchgreifend Stellung genommen hat\". - \"Seine Veröffentlichung erregte einen Sturm des Widerspruchs. Seine revolutionäre These und sein Inhalt wurden heftig angegriffen, ohne in den gedanklichen Zusammenhängen behandelt zu werden\" (Carter/Muir). - First edition of the important and groundbreaking work, which caused a long conflict in portestant theology. - Mit älterem Exlibris \"Dr. A. H. Baier\". - Einbände leicht berieben. Leder etwas beschabt. Bezugspapier an den Kanten beschabt und brüchig. Vorsätze leimschattig.

        Declaration of Independence Stereotyped Broadside Published By Prentiss Whitney and The Boston Bewick Company 1835

      Boston, MA: Prentiss Whitney / Boston Bewick Company, 1835. Broadside. Fine. 26 x 21 x 1.0. "Paper on cloth backing, hand-colored, covered with a thin ancient layer of protective lacquer or varnish. No folds or tears. Short wrinkles on the untaut paper surface. Framed in glass. 1 pages. An imposing and beautiful broadside document! Prentiss Whitney of Boston, Massachusetts published this beautiful copy of the Declaration of Independence. It is approximately 26" tall by 21" wide. It has a four-line title printed in 4 different fonts. The text of the document is primarily in a handscript font, with some words enlarged and bolded in print type of four different fonts. Bottom section contains the signature replicas. The entire document is surrounded by two intertwined vines which encircle 13 state medallions (filled with symbolic vignettes) and an eagle and shield Federal medallion. Vines and medallions are fully hand-colored. At the very bottom is printed: 'STEREOTYPED BY THE BOSTON BEWICK COMPANY. PUBLISHED BY PRENTISS WHITNEY, 30, WASHINGTON STREET.' It is undated, but probably published in 1835. Prentiss Whitney (1787-1870) was an auctioneer, publisher of historic patriotic American prints, and an entrepreneurial investor at 30 Washington St. Boston in the 1830's and 1840's. His ancestor Rev. Peter Whitney of Northborough, Ma was one of the first to call for publishing the Declaration of Independence ('American independence vindicated. A sermon delivered September 12, 1776. At a lecture appointed for publishing the Declaration of Independence passed July 4, 1776. By the representatives of the United States of America in general congress assembled'). The Boston Bewick Company, no. 47 Court Street, Boston, was an association of authors, artists, printers, and bookbinders which was in existence from 1834-1838. It is mostly known for producing engravings, and for hiring Nathaniel Hawthorne as editor of the 'American Magazine of Useful and Entertaining Knowledge'. The Act to incorporate the Boston Bewick Company states it is founded for: 'the purpose of employing, improving, and extending the art of engraving, polytyping, embossing and printing, and carrying on the business thereof.' 1835 Boston Bewick ad: 'Engraving, Stereotyping, and Printing.: Boston Bewick Company. The Boston Bewick Company Respectfully Give Notice that They are Ready to Receive Orders for Engraving on Wood, Steel and Copper; and for Copper-plate, Letter Press and Xylographic Printing, in All Their Branches.' Prentiss Whitney's prints are excessively scarce. The only other known copy of Whitney's 'Declaration' is in the Albert H. Small Declaration of Independence Collection (University of Virginia). Whitney's other prints include an 1835 engraving titled 'Destruction of Tea in Boston Harbor in 1773' which was painted by artist George Loring Brown and engraved by Richard P. Mallory (Collection of the Boston Athenaeum). 'The Capture of H.B.M. Sloop of War Frolic, Capn. Whinyates, by the U.S. Sloop of War Wasp, Capn. Jab Jones, on the 18th of Oct. 1812' Aquatint, drawn and engraved by F. Kearny, from a sketch by Lieutenant Claxton of the Wasp (U.S. Naval Academy, Annapolis).

        A New and Comprehensive Gazetteer of Virginia, and the District of Columbia . . .

      Charlottesville: Joseph Marten; Moseley & Thompson, Printers, 1835. First Edition. Leather. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Complete with all 636 pages and the exceptionally scarce folding map. Original leather boards, sympathetically rebacked. Generally clean pages with some moderate foxing in places. Owners' names on front free endpaper and title page including that of Henry L. Hopkins (Speaker of the House of Delegates from 1848-1850) who complains bitterly that the section he wrote for the book about Powhatan County "was mangled by the publisher both in style and matter." Martin's Gazetteer is one of the best sources of information on pre-Civil War Virginia and the District of Columbia. As the subtitle notes, it "contains geographical, statistical, political, commercial, religious, moral and miscellaneous information collected and compiled from the most respectable and chiefly from original sources, along with a history of Virginia from its first settlement to the year 1754 as written expressly for the work by a Virginian." Using information consolidated from local contributors, Martin was able to provide exceptionally detailed information about nearly all communities in Virginia and the District of Columbia including their boundaries, geology, scenery, topography and noteworthy natural attractions, weather, people, government, religion, education, militia, hospitals, prisons, industry, agriculture, finance, and much more. As of 2016, ABPC and Rare Book Hub show only two copies of the book have come up for auction in the last 75 years, and no copies with map are currently in the trade. Although, OCLC shows 21 institutions with copies, it is not known how many of those have the map. OCLC shows only two institutions with copies of the disbound map, and there are no auction records for it at ABPC or Rare Book Hub, nor are there any in the trade. This is a truly scarce and historically valuable piece of Virginiana. See Bradford 3218a, Eames 44894, Howes M340, and Sabin 44894.

        Veduta di fianco del Campidoglio di Roma.

      Roma, 1835 - Incisione in rame di mm 446x555, tratta da "Le Antichità Romane ossia raccolta delle più interessanti vedute di Roma antica".Dopo gli studi artistici a Bologna, Luigi Rossini (1790-1857) si trasferisce a Roma dove scopre le incisioni di Giambattista Piranesi. Qui conosce Bartolomeo Pinelli con il quale instaura una fitta collaborazione che terminerà solo con la morte di questi, nel 1835. Grazie a Pinelli, le incisioni di Rossini si popoleranno dei suo celebri personaggi. Oltre che a testimoniare il fermento culturale dell'epoca, l'opera di Rossini mostra monumenti antichi ormai perduti. Buon esemplare, assai marginoso, lieve alone di umidità al margine inferiore sinistro; qualche minima fioritura al margine superiore.

        Der Spatzier-Ritt, zum freundlichen Doerfchen oder das Mieth Pferd / La Promenade à Cheval, ou village riant ou le cheval a louage.

      c. 1835. Movable figure of a black Arabian horse mounted to a hand-colored landscape backdrop that measures 10 by 8 3/4 inches (251x196mm). The horse is articulated using a series of metal pins that allow it to be manipulated into various positions. Accompanied by eight interchangeable rider figures, all of which are hand-colored. These have a tab on the reverse side that allows them to slip onto the horse. The riders consist of two women and six men. The ladies are shown riding side-saddle and wearing full period costume. Among the men are a jockey, a Prussian Hussar, an officer with a plumed hat, and several gentlemen with various costumes, riding crops and saddle styles. This very rare paper toy is virtually unknown to reference works: a single mention of it appears in the Königlich Württembergisches allgemeines Amts- und Intelligenz-Blatt for the year 1835. No maker is identified, but a small monogram appearing at the bottom of the title label on the front of the original marbled paper slipcase shows the initials "JMB." Some trivial rubbing to slipcase, minor creases to background sheet, else fine.

        A collection of 24 broadsides and other ephemeral publications.

      San Salvador, Cojutepeque, & elsewhere: Various publishers/printers Folio and other, smaller formats. Various paginations.. 1835–63 Following the achievement of independence from Spain in 1821, El Salvador along with the rest of Central America had a brief flirtation with being part of Mexico, but with the fall of Iturbide and the collapse of the first Mexican empire, El Salvador and the rest of Central America formed a confederation, with Guatemala being the more equal of the supposed five equals. The Confederation itself collapsed as unworkable in 1838 and following the dissolution of it, the political and social history of El Salvador was characterized by a wrenching dynamic of Liberal vs. Conservative forces each wanting to control society and the government. But added to that were the ambitions of its neighbors, especially Guatemala, and occasionally Honduras and even Nicaragua. Then there was the problem of Britain and its citizens' investments in the country and the need to protect those interests. This assemblage provides rare documents on many of the issues and the personalities of the era. Of the 26 publications, we find only 8 to be held in U.S. libraries, mostly at only one library (two being held at two). A full list available and the condition statement below is keyed to it. Generally good to very good condition unless otherwise noted: Item 1) waterstained and with paper damage with loss in foremargin; 4) much worming, mostly in margins but also in text, touching but not costing letters; 5) totally browned; 9 & 10) in recent wrappers; 11) water damage to upper outer corner with loss of paper; 12) recent wrappers, cockling of paper and a few stray stains; 13) recent wrappers, small hole in blank portion of title-page, light waterstaining at base of same; 14) recent wrappers, a few stains; 17) two very small pin-type wormholes in text, touching but not costing letters; 20) light age-toning.

        [Scrapbook]: 1830s Tanner's Ledger used as Civil War Scrapbook

      Utica, New York. circa 1835-1870. Tall folio. Measuring 16" x 6.5". Marbled paper boards with leather spine and corners. A tanner's ledger with 22 of the pages used as a scrapbook before and during the American Civil War. Very good with moderate age-toning and rubbing. The original ledger was used by a tanner in Utica, New York from about 1835 to 1845 and all pages were completely filled in by the tanner. It was reused 15 years later as a scrapbook with newspaper clippings, many of which are from the Utica Morning Herald, affixed over the customer information, with many additional clippings laid in throughout. A large majority are short stories, serials, poems, and satire written in the late 1850s such as "Rules for Sleeping in Church," "The Maiden's Confusion" by Mrs. Ann S. Stevens, "The Occultation of Orion" by Longfellow, and a piece entitled "On April" by Henry Ward Beecher. One article with the headline, "The New Era: Important Speech by the President," from April 11, 1865, includes the entire transcript from Abraham Lincoln's last public address given two days after the surrender of Confederate General Robert E. Lee's Army. Other war related clippings include "Our Ships of War in Foreign Ports: A Proclamation by the President," "Abraham Lincoln: Interview between the President and Goldwin Smith," a poem entitled "The Flag of the Union," "To the Heroes of America" by Joseph Rodman Drake, "Sumner's Place in History," and a poem "There's Victory with Grant" by James W. Husted. The laid in articles continue after the war with two articles about the President's death and some about Andrew Johnson's presidency with one article quoting General Ambrose Burnside's speech in New York following Lincoln's death, "it is our duty and the duty of the country now to support Andrew Johnson; and I am glad to be able to say that he is worthy of the support of the people." An interesting accumulation of ephemera collected during the Civil War era. .

        Early American cabinetmaker's manuscript design book with unrecorded printed broadside

      "Holley, NY". [1835]. "Small 4to notebook (approx. 8"" x 6¼"") bound in original half calf over marbled boards, containing approximately 80 leaves with manuscript entries and designs composed and drawn in ink and pencil; some blank pages scattered throughout. Three loose scraps containing designs laid in. Moderate wear, dampstaining to endpapers, otherwise very good. The accompanying letterpress broadside reads ""Holley Cabinet Ware House. C. Richardson would inform the people of Holley, and vicinity, that he still continues the cabinet making business 3 doors south of Perry's Tavern..."" Brockport, [NY], 1835. Broadside measures 14"" x 11"" and is printed in various fonts with a central composite image of period furniture, including a dresser, chairs, settee, and wash stand, the text within a thick ornamental border. Some of the illustrations on the broadside are taken, apparently, from drawings in the accompanying manuscript. The broadside appears to be unrecorded. At the beginning of the 19th century, the furniture industry in America saw a sudden shift of its epicenter from Philadelphia to New York. Dubbed the ""London of America,"" it was thought at the time that New York would in fact be the leader in business in the United States. To facilitate the cabinetmaking industry a new directory for cabinetmakers in New York was published in 1805 and various guides were issued helping craftsmen to price their furniture. Styles were elegant and influenced highly by the European furniture which was also being imported into New York. Phyfe, Allison, and Ash produced some of the finest examples of furniture from that period. However, although the high styles of the time may have been determined by these well known cabinetmakers, others imitated and added their own interpretations. ""Eventually cabinetmakers in upstate towns and villages who picked up New York City styles rendered their own versions. Using local woods, this furniture evokes a spirit of the time with a dash of country charm. As trends in New York State furniture moved upstate, they also spread across the country. New York remained in the forefront of furniture design and production until the end of the nineteenth century."" (Scherer, Federal Period 6). This fine group of material illustrates an 1830's provincial craftsman working in the newly fashionable Empire-style designs. Among the more fully executed designs in this notebook are a washstand, stool, dressing tables, and secretaries, each with detailed measurements. Some are titled, such as ""French Bureau,"" ""Grecian Card Table,"" and ""Portable Secretary."" Others may have been sketched during a trip to York, Ontario (now Toronto), including ""York Bureau No. 1 and 2."" The book also includes details of carving designs, such as foliage, scrolls, turning profiles, and volutes. In the back of the volume are several recipes for varnishes and stains, some intended to imitate more expensive materials such as mahogany, curly maple, and marble. Many of these recipes are credited to other cabinet-makers residing in Ontario and northern New England. The notebook is not signed, but was kept between 1830 and 1833. Both items were inherited by Gertrude (Cole) Simmons (1895- 1985) of an old Holley-area family. Her grandmother was Ellen Maria (Richardson) Cowles (1838-1873), who may have been the daughter of the cabinet maker suggesting in all likelihood that the notebook was accomplished by C. Richarson who issued the 1835 broadside in Holley, NY. See Finkelman, Encyclopedia of the New American Nation: The Emergence of the United States, 1754-1829. Detroit, 2006; Scherer, New York Furniture: The Federal Period, 1788-1825. Albany, 1988; and, Scherer, New York Furniture at the New York State Museum, Alexandria, VA, 1984."
