        LIFE AND AGE OF WOMAN.|THE

      Barre, MA: A. Alden, 1835. Broadside, 21 1/2 by 18 inches framed under glass. A seven-figure image of the stages in a woman's life from one to ninety years of age by Albert Alden (1812-1883). The 30 year-old woman is on the highest step, when she is "at the height of her physical and intellectual powers." Age 18 is described as the "most critical stage" in a woman's life. At age 90 "we see all that remains of her who once tripped the light fantastic." Appears to be a companion to Alden's woodcut "The Life and Age of Man," ca. 1830 (Princeton University Main Catalog). Both illustrate 19th century conceptions of morality and gender roles, depicting the woman as nurturer and spiritual guide. Verse from the Old Testament book of Proverbs on the traits of the ideal woman cited. Featured is an illustration of a woman mentoring a young girl reading the Scriptures. Stained and creased.

COPAC has just BL, NMM, Oxford, Cambridge, Glasgow and St. Andrews; OCLC adds four copies only in the US and one in Australia. Barker was the Deptford-born son of a dissenting preacher. At 16 he joined an East Indiaman, and later served in the Royal Navy, "where, as he was without influence, he never rose beyond the rank of master's mate on the gun-brig The Flamar. After retiring from the service in 1813, he commanded a hired armed schooner, the True Briton, and was employed under Lord Keith in carrying dispatches to the English squadrons on the southern coasts of France and Spain. On one occasion he fell into the enemy's hands and was detained for some months as a prisoner of war" (ODNB). He was subsequently the editor of a West Indies newspaper, and later employed in a similar capacity in Nottingham. "He was naval editor of the United Service Gazette and a frequent contributor to the Literary Gazette, the Pictorial Times, and Bentley's Miscellany, the last at the time under the editorship of Charles Dickens, who came to value the consistent quality of the contributions of 'the old Sailor'. Barker was a friend of George Cruikshank, who illustrated seven of his works." Barker "felt that his publishers were less than generous with him" and when the popularity of sea tales waned he fell on hard times. He died in poverty in 1846.

        Grundriss der Seelenheilkunde. 2 Bde.

      . Berlin, Theodor Christain Friedrich Enslin, 1835-1837, 8°, X, 809,(1); VI, 975, (1) pp., 2 feine marmorierte Pappbände im Stil der Zeit, mit Rückenschilddern und Rückenvergoldung; kleiner St.a.Tit.. First Edition! - Christian Ludwig Ideler (1766-1846) "was primarily interested in the non-somatic causes of mental illness, although he certainly accepted somatic causes as well. He pointed out the importance of the passions in the genesis of insanity and questioned how they could be so poorly controlled. This line of questioning eventually led to a central point in Ideler's psychiatric thinking: drives. According to Ideler, drives are elements of the mind. They help satisfy human needs and are consequently necessary components of human life. Each drive develops on its own. Certain external influences and a lack of morals can lead to drive disharmony. One drive may develop at the expense of others and lead to an imbalance-namely, to insanity. Knowledge of the existence of the drives and the realisation of the necessity of their uniform development was an important premise for the maintenance of psychic health and a harmonious mental life. Those who are unable to achieve this state on their own, however, are prone to insanity and need a doctor's help. This is why only a moral and well-educated doctor should practise psychiatry. In addition to his drive psychology, which certainly shows parallels with Sigmund Freud's (1856-1939) later psychoanalytical ideas, Ideler's biographic-psychogenic approach is also noteworthy. In his case studies, he made particular use of the newly established discipline of forensic psychiatry, thereby helping to validate it. He emphasised the necessity of a comprehensive psychological examination that takes into consideration personal history, mental and physical peculiarities and also the social milieu and situation in which delinquent acts are committed. Ideler thought it particularly important to view people in their entirety; he strove to heal the ailing person, not the illness. This kind of comprehensive, anthropological approach makes good sense in the age of scientific medicine." K Haack and E Kumbier: Carl Wilhelm Ideler (1795-1860): a controversial German psychiatrist of the 19th century. J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry. 2006 August; 77(8): 947. - - Hunter-M. 1018; Kat. d.

        Carte Carte générale de la Colonie anglaise à la Nouvelle-Galles du Sud (Nouvelle Hollande). Rédigée par Louis de Freycinet

      1835. Steel engraved map, 665 x 505 mm. (sheet size), with the district boundaries of New South Wales delineated by an expert contemporary hand; fine condition. Exciting riverine discoveries beyond the Blue Mountains. Fastidiously prepared map of Eastern Australia by Louis de Freycinet, with coastal detail from Moreton Bay in the north to Wilson's Promontory, and rich inland revelations including the Lachlan, Murrumbidgee and Darling Rivers.Freycinet is best remembered for his voyage to Australia and the South Pacific of 1817-1820, a pivotal French expedition that advanced scientific and geographical knowledge of the region. Freycinet prepared this beautiful map of New South Wales some years after his return to France (it is dated 1835, some seven years prior to Louis' premature decease in 1842). The care and detail expended on this chart are testament to Freycinet's skill as a mapmaker and his ongoing interest in Australian affairs. Much of the inland detail, including the riverine systems beyond the Blue Mountains, derives from the published accounts of explorers such as Oxley, Hume, Sturt and Cunningham.

        Plate 98, Monumento antico ritrovato fra le ruine di un Sepolero sulla Via Appia vicino a Capo.

      Paris 1835 - John Wilton-Ely plate 993Piranesi\'s magnificent rendering of ancient Roman vases. The watermark that is present is number 93 in John Wilton-Ely on page 1182 and is dated in the mid 1830s Giovanni Battista Piranesi was one of the leading figures in the development of the neoclassical style in the late 18th Century. As architect, archaeologist, artist, designer, collector, and antiquities dealer, he produced a series of etchings and engravings depicting the glories of ancient Rome. These fine prints served as source material for other architects and designers. He was born in Venice on the 4th October 1720. The son of a stone-mason, he was educated as an architect under his maternal uncle Matto Lucchesi and under Carlo Zucchi. In 1740 Piranesi left Venice for Rome, there he studied etching under Giuseppe Vasi. He appears to have had little success in these early years in Rome and as his father was unable to continue his allowance returned to Venice in 1744. He was soon, however, encouraged to return to Rome by Giuseppe Wagner, a successful engraver and publisher of Venice. This time he achieved success, and a constant series of works, illustrating architecture and antiquities, issued from his studio until his death in 1778. His output in etched plates is enormous (about 1000 numbers in all). While he achieved a work of magnitude in pictorial records of Roman monuments of antiquity and of the Renaissance, and gave immense archæological, antiquarian, and topographical value to this work, the artistic quality always predominates. He was fond of peopling his ruins with Callot-like figures, and \"like Callot makes great use of the swelling line\" (Hind). He had two sons and a daughter, all of whom helped him in his work and after his death carried on his publications in Rome and Paris. They were Francesco (born 1748 or 1756; died 1810), Pietro (who lived till after 1807) and Laura (born 1750). His position in Rome and in Europe after 1760 was a prominent one. He was well-known figure to the wealthy English visitors in Rome and was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1757. Most of his life was passed in Rome, etching, writing, publishing, and directing a workshop in which the restoration and sale of antiques played a considerable part.He was famous for his poetic views of Rome and also his fantastic imaginary interiors. His skills, allied to his deep knowledge of archaeology, provided the substance for his Vedute (Views), a series of 135 etchings of ancient and contemporary Rome, published from 1745 onwards, which established the popular mental image of the city. Vasi.et Ornamenti Antichi was a collection of 110 etchings documenting large sculptural vases, together with other antiquities excavated (and in some cases created) in Italy in the 18th century. The prints were initially separately issued and sold by Piranesi over a period of several years and subsequently collected in two folio volumes, each with its own title page, in 1778. They illustrate a wide range of genuine antiquities, as well as Piranesi\'s own collections, from utilitarian objects such as cinerary urns, lamps, and sarcophagi to monumental vases. The plates in Vasi often included text by Piranesi with information about where the objects were discovered and their contemporary location, and the prints bore dedications to his patrons, colleagues, visitors and influential people. He believed absolutely in the supremacy of Roman over Greek architecture, an argument he expounded most forcefully in his Della magnificenza ed architettura dei Romani (On the Magnificence of Roman Architecture, 1761). his romanticized views and imaginary interiors had a profound effect on stage designers, painters of capricci such as Hubert Robert, and even writers: William Beckford, the author of the Gothic novel and Vathek . In the 20th century his imaginary interiors have been admired by the Surrealists . Reference: Ficacci plate 838, Image Size : , Platemark Size : 538x380 (m

A handsome set and quit scarce. The last set sold at auction in 2006. OCLC records two holding of only eight parts in four volumes. An important work by the Count Las Cases who followed Napoleon into exile at St. Helena. For 18 months he recorded his conversations with Napoleon on his principles of warfare, his identification of the French Revolution with the Empire, his political philosophy, and his sentiments on religion and philosophy. A letter of complaint about Napoleon’s treatment led to Las Cases’ deportation and to the seizure of his manuscript by the British government. Forbidden to enter England, he traveled in Germany and Belgium until he was allowed to return to France after the death of Napoleon in 1822. Las Cases represents the 17th military generation of his family, which began with the reign of Louis VIII in 1223. During the time between the reign of Louis VIII and Napoleon's exile in 1815, the Las Cases family was intimately involved in the majority of the European conflicts that occurred, being closely tied to the monarchy and writing their biographies including that of Columbus..

        Histoire naturelle des Céphalopodes Acétabulifères vivants et fossiles.

      Paris, Lacour, 1835-1848. ATLAS: 102 lithographed plates of which 84 finely hand-coloured. Contemporary half cloth. A complete copy has pp. lvi, 361, with 144 plates of which 117 coloured. The work, published in 21 parts, is the most splendid publication on cephalopods and is one of rarest natural history books. We have only sold one copy which was in 1953. The 102 plates we offer were published in 1834 and 1835 and comprise parts 1-11. The remaining plates were published in 1839-1842. The work is important as it describes numerous new species and is the first important compilation of cephalopods. The publication of the work was particularly lengthy and confused as Férussac died in 1836 and Orbigny had left for an eight year long voyage to South America. The plates are incredibly impressive drawn by the best French artists of the period such as J.G. Prêtre, A. Prévosts, Oudart and Werner. Many of the plates have been heightened with gum Arabic. The atlas is preserved in a contemporary half cloth binding, lacking a part from the lower spine. Some plates are loose. Apart from some minor foxing the plates are in fine condition.//Nissen ZBI, 1347.

        Eyewitness account of the New York fire of 1835

      prev 4to sheets. 3 pages of manuscript. Near the intersection of Hanover Street and Stone Street on December 16, 1835, a fire began in a five-story warehouse. Fed by high winds, the fire quickly spread through the city, as sub freezing temperatures prevented the use of fire hoses. After fifteen hours, firefighters were able to stop the progress of the fire by blowing up a series of buildings. This 1835 blaze was the worst in the history of New York. It destroyed over fifty acres of land, 700 buildings, and many of the remnants of the original city. Only two people perished, but financial losses were estimated around twenty million dollars. Most of the insurance companies for local properties immediately went bankrupt. This is a moving, emotional, three page letter written two days after the fire by an eyewitness who sees the hand of a “wise Providence” in the devastation of a “City, bloated in wealth, forgetful of daily favors.” “Property and merchandise to an incalculable amount has been consumed... And those who foolishly believed or fancied themselves secured by Insurance have since discovered that all the Principal offices are more than doubly ruined... Many worthy individuals, who by their industry and economy had acquired a sufficiency, have in a moment, as it were, been deprived of their All. And a vast number of pampered, rich, overgrown Individuals, who boast of their wealth, and feel their only importance, in the distinction which it created, have been reached in a way, least expected, and shaken and sifted after the manner of wheat...”& &
