        Plate 29, Vaso antico di marmo adornato di finissimi intaglj ed arabeschi Si vede in Inghilterra presso il Signor Egidio Earle Cavaliere Inglese amatore delle belle arti.

      Paris 1835 - John Wilton-Ely plate 914Piranesi'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: John Wilton-Ely. Giovanni Battista Piranesi: The Complete Etching

        Tough Yarns; A Series of Naval Tales and Sketches to please all Hands, From the Swabs on the Shoulders down to the Swabs in the Head. By The Old Sailor. Illustrated by George Cruikshank.

      London: Effingham Wilson, 1835 - Octavo (167 × 100 mm). Contemporary half calf, marbled sides, rebacked with gilt spine. Armorial bookplate of Admiral Wilmot Hawksworth Fawkes, one time commander of the Royal Yacht and commander-in-chief of Portsmouth to the front pastedown, and that of the Earl of Mexborough to the front free. Somewhat rubbed on the boards, new endpapers at the rear, plates browned as usual, text toned, a very good copy. Engraved frontispiece and 7 other plates, vignettes to the text. First edition. Uncommon naval fiction dedicated to Captain Marryat. 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. Wolff 294; not in Sadleir.

        Letters From India; Describing a Journey in the British Dominions of India, Tibet, Lahore, and Cashmeer, During the Years 1828, 1829, 1830, 1831. Undertaken by Order of the French Government Second Edition. Very carefully corrected and revised.

      London, Edward Churton, 1835. - 2 volumes, small octavo (170 × 102 mm), recently bound in tan full morocco, title gilt direct to spine, fine beaded rolled panel gilt to the boards, top edges gilt, others uncut, marbled endpapers. Light browning, marginal foxing, frontis. and half-title to Vol. I with short splits repaired verso with archival tape, overall very good. Engraved frontispieces and vignette half-titles to each. First published in French in 1833, the year after Jacquemont's death, the English first edition was 1834. Jacquemont was one of the founders of the Société d'Histoire Naturelle, worked at the Jardin des Plantes in Paris, and studied geology under Arago at the École des Mines. In 1827 he was invited by Pierre Louis Cordier of the Musée d'Histoire Naturelle to undertake a fully-salaried scientific expedition to India. Landing in Pondicherry in 1828, he proceeded to Calcutta, thence to Benares, Agra, and Delhi "and in the company of Lord William Bentinck arrived in 1830 at Simla." (Howgego) While there he joined the Gerard brothers in explorations of the passes leading to Tibet, claiming to have crossed into the country twice, and was encouraged by them to obtain permission to visit Kashmir. At Lahore, he successfully obtained audiences with Ranjit Singh who granted the necessary authority, and Jacquemont headed into Kashmir "Unlike most of his contemporaries he made no attempt to disguise himself." Deserted by his porters, subjected to incessant heat, he was captured by a bandit adherent of Ranjit, Nihal Singh "who was desperately in need of a prestigious hostage." But so persuasive was Jacquemont that Nihal was soon a trusted servant who accompanied him to Srinagar; "He spent four months there, making forays into the surrounding country and amassing a considerable collection of plants, stuffed birds and fishes, and geological specimens." Returning to Delhi, he was stricken with ill-health and died in 1832 at Bombay of an abscess on the liver. His letters proved to be immensely successful, perhaps because of their providing what the DIB describes as "a most vivid account of the social condition of India in those days."

        Selections from the Edinburgh Review, Comprising The Best Articles in That Journal, From Its Commencement to the Present Time. With A Preliminary Dissertation and Explanatory Notes. (6 volumes)

      Baurdry's European Library, Paris 1835 - Book. 1835 to 1836, 6 volumes. The Edinburgh Review, begun in 1802 (and continuing until 1929), was a leading political and literary quarterly especially in its earlier decades, and a beacon of "liberalism" as the word was traditionally understood, and thus generally advocating laissez-faire policies, championing liberties, and supporting of free trade and less governmental tampering with the marketplace. Its stable of contributors is perhaps unrivaled among such publications, then or now, and indeed, it is virtually inconceivable that any one publication would draw upon so many thinkers whose ideas would have an indelible and lasting effect on society. As an anthology of the "best of" up until the publication date, the six volumes are organized around topics, with generally several pieces, some of them extended, on each of the covered larger themes. The first volume begins with a "Preliminary Dissertation on The Progress of Periodical Literature: and The History, Principles and Tendency of The Edinburgh Review", which is a summary of the review and what it stood for, as well as a synopsis of its highlights. Following comes the thematic sections. Starting with volume one, these are: Poetry and the Drama, Character of Distinguished Poets, Sketches of the Old English Dramatists, Character of Eminent Divines, Philosophers, Statesmen, Orators, Historians, Novelists and Critics; Miscellaneous Literature (German, Historical Writing, etc.); Metaphysics and Moral Science; Education; Political History; Foreign Politics; Miscellaneous Politics; Civil and Religious Liberty; Reform in Parliament, Church Reform, Liberty of the Press, West India Slavery; Political Economy -- Laws and Jurisprudence, Ireland. With all these broad categories, there are several, or even many, shorter pieces by different authors. There is scattered foxing, sometimes heavy. Most of the interior is clean, however. Modern green half calf over contemporary marbled boards. Some edge wear to the boards. Marbled endpapers. Overall a very good copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

For three consecutive winters Ross and his men were stuck in ice, but used the time wisely to learn mapping, hunting, sewing, transportation and language from the local inuit. Ross also organized lectures, lessons, and scientific inquiries, one of which discovered the North Magnetic Pole. In 1832 Ross finally abandoned the ship, and managed to live on supplies found at Parry’s wreck. A whaler rescued Ross and his crew in 1833, and remarkably, it was the same vessel which Ross had commanded on his first voyage. Additional postage may be necessary US$2763 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Das Leben Jesu, kritisch bearbeitet

      Tubingen Osiander 1835 - Jesus Without the Myths STRAUSS, David Friedrich. Das Leben Jesu, kritisch bearbeitet. Tubingen: Osiander, 1835-36. First edition of this important work. Two octavo volumes (7 5/8 x 4 7/8 inches; 195 x 124 mm). xvi, 731, [1], [2, publisher’s ads]; xii, 750, [2, errata] pp. Publisher’s blind-ruled and beveled black cloth, spines with central gilt arabesques surrounding the gilt lettering, pastepaper endpapers, edges stained red. Some underlining in blue on a few pages. Some scattered foxing. Overall, a very good copy. "The publication of 'The Life of Jesus Critically Considered' aroused a storm of controversy; its revolutionary thesis and content were violently attacked, and wrenched out of context. Strauss's principal objective was to explode not only the traditional orthodox view of the Gospel accounts of the life of Jesus, but also earlier rationalistic views." (PMM p. 182). Strauss's first and greatest work, a crucial text in the history of biblical studies and of religious scholarship generally. The first consistent, systematic application of the (then quasi-Hegelian) notion of myth to the New Testament and early Christianity, offering an epoch-making interpretation of the Christ of the Gospels as the unintentional product of a "mythos" of Messianic expectation already present in ancient Hebrew culture. The book was a scandal which adversely affected Strauss's entire career, offending rationalist and orthodox biblical literalists alike Printing and the Mind of Man 300.

Lombardy was annexed to Sardinia in 1859 and the kingdom ceased to exist when the rest of its territory was annexed to the Kingdom of Italy in 1866. Interesting for its insights into the development of the Kingdom's legal system, Negri's digest reconciles pre-1815 laws with the post-1815 system.

Edition originale de cet ouvrage fondateur, "one of the greatest books of the 19th century" (G. Sarton, cite par IESS, XIII, 247). Rapprochant, pour la premiere fois, l'analyse mathematique et la quantification des phenomenes sociaux, Quetelet pose les principes de la statistique moderne et "ouvre la porte a l'analyse quantitative raisonnee dans les sciences sociales (...). C'est le premier ouvrage theorique qui mette la statistique au service des sciences sociales" (Dupaquier, 'Histoire de la demographie', p. 396 et s.). "Les regles pratiques qu'il a posees, forment encore les bases des travaux de recensement modernes. On lui doit l'extension de la statistique des faits physiques au domaine des 'statistiques morales'. Dans le domaine theorique, il cree le concept d' 'Homme moyen' " (Willems, 'Dictionnaire de sociologie', p. 238). "A new era in statistics began. Quetelet impact on 19th century thinking can be compared with Descartes's in the 17th century" (DSB, XI, 237). (Kress, C.4017. DSB, XI, 236-8. IESS, XIII, 247-257). Quelques rousseurs et piqures.

        The American Anti-Slavery Almanac, for 1836 - Volume 1, Number 1

      Boston: Webster & Southard, 1835. First Printing. Pamphlet. Very Good. First Printing. Pamphlet. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. The very first issue of the Anti-Slavery Almanac. Complete with 48 unnumbered pages including the covers. Cover illustration of "An Emancipated Family" plus two other illustrations: one shows a "Negro Hunt" and the other shows happy African children playing outside their hut just before being captured by slavers. Sound string binding. Clean pages with occasional, very light toning/spoting in the margins. Light wear. This is the first issue of the American Anti-Slavery Almanac. As noted in advertisement in The Liberator, the almanac's purpose was to provide "facts and information concering slavery which cannot fail to render it interesting to friends of Abolition, and a terror to slaveholders." The illustrations published in these almanacs were just as important. As noted by Angelina Grimke, "Until the pictures of the slave's sufferings were drawn and held up to the public gaze, no Northerner had any idea of the cruelty of the system, it never entered their minds that such abominations could exist in Christian, Republican America.

        ORATION ON THE LIFE AND CHARACTER OF GILBERT MOTIER DE LAFAYETTE. DELIVERED AT THE REQUEST OF BOTH HOUSES OF THE CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES, BEFORE THEM, IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES AT WASHINGTON, ON THE 31ST DECEMBER, 1834.

      Washington: Printed by Gales and Seaton, 1835. - 94pp. Contemporary red straight-grained morocco, ruled in gilt. Neatly rebacked, the original spine laid down. Presentation leaf tipped in ahead of titlepage with presentation inscription from the author ("Gideon Hard from John Quincy Adams") and further inscriptions by several later owners passing along the book. Very minor foxing and soiling. A good copy. A presentation copy of Adams' speech honoring the memory of Revolutionary War hero Marquis de Lafayette. This copy is inscribed by Adams to Gideon Hard, is in a presentation binding of red straight-grained morocco, of the sort favored by the Adams family for decades, and is printed on thick paper. John Quincy Adams devoted his entire career to government service. The son of President John Adams, he himself served as the sixth president, as a U.S. Senator from 1803 to 1808, as Secretary of State from 1817 to 1825, and in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1831 until his death in the U.S. Capitol in 1848. Gideon Hard (1797-1885) was a lawyer and politician from New York State. He served as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from 1833-37, and was thus one of Adams' fellow Congressmen. He later held several New York State political offices. Adams provides a review of Lafayette's contributions to American independence and his activities in the decades after the Revolutionary War, particularly his involvement in the French Revolution and various French governments which followed. In this brief biography, Adams reflects "upon the life and character of a man whose life was, for nearly threescore years, the history of the civilized world - of a man, of whose character, to say that it is indissolubly identified with the Revolution of our Independence, is little more than to mark the features of his childhood - of a man, the personified image of self- circumscribed liberty." An eight- page appendix records Congressional actions related to the death of Lafayette. SABIN 295. JACKSON, p.208.

        South Sea Whale Fishery . A Representation of Boats attacking a Sperm Whale

      London: Rudolph Ackermann, 1835. Handcoloured aquatint, 350 x 515 mm. (image size), complete with caption and all margins; sealed tear top left, generally in very good condition, framed. Whaling dramas. A rare and classic whaling print, showing a dramatic scene of a sperm whale crashing through a whaling boat, flinging the five whalers into the sea. The title "South Sea Whale Fishery" referred to all whale hunting south of the Arctic, an area the British established in 1776 when an American whaleman, Samuel Enderby, emigrated to England and was followed by recruits from Nantucket. 'Once the British and American China traders pioneered the Cape Horn route in the 1780s, the whalers followed closely in their wake… the whalers poked along and across the Ocean itself in search of the great leviathan - out to its farthest extensions and into its most distant corners, often to regions seldom visited by anyone else. The history of the whalers in the South Seas is thus, in a sense, the epic saga of the discovery, colonisation, contamination and subjugation of the Pacific itself' (Forster, The South Sea Whaler).
