        Géométrie stéréographique, ou reliefs des polyèdres, pour faciliter l'étude des corps

      Paris, L'auteur, 1835, in-8, IV-44 pages et 25 planches, soit 24 sur carton avec figures pré-découpées et 1 pl. depl, broché, couverture imprimée de l'éditeur, couvertures renforcées et dos factice, titre à l'encre en tête du dos, Première adaptation française, rare, de deux textes anglais de Cowley, parus à Londres respectivement en 1758 et 1765-1766 sous les titres "An appendix to Euclid's elements [...] in wich the Doctrine of Solids, is Illustrated, and Rendered Easy", et "The theory of Perspective Demonstrated". La méthode de Cowley est unique dans l'histoire des livres de perspective car elle n'avait pour but de présenter des constructions de vues de perspective, mais de familiariser ses lecteurs (un public de formation militaire, puisqu'il était professeur de mathématiques à la "Royal Military Academy" de Wollwich) à la géométrie tri-dimensionnelle, autrement dit familiariser ses élèves à l'application de la théorie des plans à la perspective. Pour ce faire, il fit graver sur des cartons forts des formes géométriques pré-découpées pouvant se replier et ainsi former en relief les différents corps solides euclidiens réguliers ou irréguliers. Marie, à l'instar de Cowley, était mathématicien et cartographe. Son édition française compte 24 planches d'éléments mobiles servant à montrer les volumes des cinq polyèdres selon des calculs ou une technique représentation stéréographiques des corps. Cachet de l'Institut Catholique de Paris. Couverture renforcées et dos factice, petit manque en première de couverture ; néanmoins, exemplaire propre, complet de tous ses éléments mobiles.

        De zoogdieren, vogelen en visschen. Afgebeeld en beschreven voor Nederlandsche jonge lieden.Amsterdam, Diederichs brothers, 1835-1836. 3 parts in 1 volume. 8vo. With 3 wood engraved frontispieces and ca. 200 wood engravings in text (many full-page). Contemporary boards.

      Huiskamp O13-O15 (this copy?); NCC (3 copies of the separate volumes); Saakes X, p. 463. Very rare first and only edition of (the Dutch translation?) of a richly illustrated zoological children's book. The book is divided into three parts: mammals, birds and fishes, making a broad selection of animals from apes to whales, from vultures to pelicans and from perches to rays. The latter parts not only describes the fishes, but also discusses fishery. Huiskamp notes it's translated from the English by W.J. Olivier, but no original is known and his information is not found elsewhere. W.J. Olivier has done several other very free translations, so the present could be modelled after Bewick, with new engravings. The few other copies located are all listed under their part titles, which seem to suggest they don't include the general title-page.With the 19th-century owner's inscription and embossed library stamp of Daniël Boissevain. Some occasional spots and faint foxing, otherwise in very good condition. Slightly rubbed along the spine, one hinges partly cracked, and the title-label worn; the binding otherwise good.

        Manuscript Journal of an Apothecary and Physician Carl Daniel Schwila of Breslau.

      Breslau, Lower Silesia, Germany, now Wroclaw, 1835. This manuscript journal contains numerous medicinal recipes, others for household use including a mouse poison, as well as very detailed notes from lectures and references to the works of notable physicians from Germany, France and England. Text is in German. 8vo. 357 in manuscript, plus 3 additional leafs placed within, penned in three distinct hands. First leaf bears the blind stamp of "Apotheke in Kösel - R. Schliwa" Deteriorated binding which lacks rear board and spine, age-toning throughout, indication of burrowing to a few leaves, otherwise in good condition, an abundant and fascinating journal of pharmaceutical interest. Contained in an archival clam shell box for extra protection. An extensive journal of Victorian era medical formulae compiled and utilized by an apothecary and physician, over some twenty-five years, its entries feature numerous recipes for treatment, in the form of ingestible liquid prescriptions, tinctures, syrups, tonics, teas, compounds, pills, and possibly plasters. With at least three contributors, Dr. Schwila and his partners or protégés (possibly family), the volume was likely the cornerstone reference work of a family business in Kosel. [Kosel, known historically as Koslev, is a municipality in the district of Rendsburg-Eckernförde, in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany.] This volume is a fine elucidation of pharmaceutical techniques, discoveries, and evolving theories in medicine during mid-nineteenth century, frequently drawing on notable physicians and surgeons, apothecaries, leading medical educators, and their revolutionary works. In an ongoing pursuit to improve remedies and medical procedures, Schwila evidently kept abreast of the most recent findings and applications across Western Europe, he also performed his own experiments. An eight-page section is attributed to "Runge" at its conclusion, quite likely referring to German chemist Friedlieb Ferdinand Runge (1795-1867) who identified the mydriatic effects of the belladonna (deadly nightshade) extract, and who identified caffeine in the coffee plant. Other contemporaries in his field, mentioned here - homeopath Dr. George von Schmidt (1820-1882) who published a treatise on cholera titled "Das Choleragift" in 1867, apothecary Keller, apothecary Koldewey ein Isselburg, Dr. Vogel, Dr. Wittke zu Rummelsburg, Herr A. Lepowitz. English surgeon Thomas Turner (1793-1873), known primarily for his involvement in developing medical education outside its then traditional base of London, is also mentioned with the date of 1826, possibly in relation to his work as surgeon to the Deaf and Dumb Institution. The recipes are equally fascinating, with innumerable natural remedy treatments for human ailments, comprised mainly of plant extracts, herbs and minerals. . Manuscript.

        A sketch of the structure of the Eastern Alps; with sections through the newer formations on the northern flanks of the chain, and through the tertiary deposits of Styria etc.

      1835 - Geological Society of London. 1835. 4to. Recently bound on cream cloth-backed paper-covered boards; pp. 301 - 420, 1 folding hand-coloured map, 2 folding plates (1 hand-coloured), 3 other plates; very good indeed. Offprint from the Transactions of the Geological Society of London. This is the most substantial work to arise from Sedgwick and Murchison's trip to Alps in in 1829, which was itself one of the most extensive collaborations of their ill-fated friendship. This was an important paper in that it showed the extent of the Alpine limestone, which Sedgwick was able to correlate with strata in northeastern England, and the whole thrust of their argument is to do with stratigraphical continuity. Their main concern is to bridge the apparent faunal gap between secondary and tertiary strata, a concern that would later lead them to identify their rival systems. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Poetical Romances of Tristan;Tristan: Recueil de ce qui Reste des Poëms Relatifs a Ses Aventures

      Guillaume Pickering, Londres 1835 - 2 volumes. 12mo. Illustrated with lithographs of the manuscripts, some with initials colored by hand in red and blue. Title page in Volume 1 in both English and French. Publisher's original cloth in a small sand grain design. This is clearly Winterbottom's Type 'M' (Tomlinson). Krupp (p.30) notes this as San1, but without a Winterbottom cross-reference. She ascribes an appearance date of 1850 for this early design; to find it on books published in 1835 is a treat. That it would appear on a Pickering work should be no surprise. Pickering started experimenting with bookcloth as early as 1823 through his binder, Archibald Leighton, who was responsible for many innovations in the design and use of early bookcloth. The text constitutes mainly the remains of Thomas of Britain's Tristan Romance, composed in the 12th and 13th centuries in Norman French and Greek, here edited and rendered in the originals by Fr. Michel. This is a very good set with only light signs of age and wear. Fairly scarce. A third volume with additional Tristan fragments was issued in 1839, not present her. There is an old note on the front free endpaper indicating that this is one of 250 copies, but we have not been able to confirm that limitation. This is the first printed edition of Thomas of Britain. It dates from about 1170, and includes Tristan's marriage and the Hall of Statues, his return to Cornwall, and the lovers' deaths, using the motif of the sails. Reiss, Reiss & Taylor, Nrs. 930 and 956. A translation into English was issued by Pickering the same year. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Malerische Reise in Brasilien

      First edition, with the text in German -simultaneously published to the French edition-, a brilliant copy of this masterpiece of Brazilian 19th century scenery and costumes. Rugendas´ plate-book occupies a distinguished position in Brazil´s already rich iconography; it is accurate, comprehensive, and strikingly beautiful. The 100-hundred plates show the aboriginal costumes, city views, architecture, landscapes, and urban scenery; in the latter we can appreciate a fascinating visual record of Brazil´s important slave history, with 20 plates illustrating the subject. The country´s celebrated landscapes are also well represented, with some 30 plates recording cities like and Bahia Rio de Janeiro. All the plates are after German artist Maurits Rugendas (1802 - 1858), famous for his landscapes and ethnographic subject of the Americas (mostly Brazil, Chile, and Argentina); Rugendas was influenced by earlier artistic works produced after explorations of the American, namely those of Johann Baptist von Spix and Carl von Martius. In the early 1820´s Rugendas travelled to Brazil, soon hired by Baron von Langsdorff in the capacity of illustrator for the scientific expedition to Minas Gerais and Sao Paulo, which allowed him a first glance of the country´s scenery, his employment however would soon come to an end, when he is replaced by Adrien Taunay; still, the author remained in the country on his own until 1825, travelling through Bahia, Rio de Janeiro, Pernambuco, Mato Grosso, and other regions, recording his impression mostly in drawings and watercolors. His skill as draughtsman left us with a wonderful book in two respects, first, because of it´s beauty, which the reader can enjoy and be transported into a day and time which no longer exists, second, the importance as an iconographic record of Brazil´s life in the first quarter of the 19th century, defined as of "genuine documentary value, which are of utmost importance for the study of Brazilian life at the beginning of the 19th century" (Borba de Moraes, at the same time criticizing somewhat the text); Pedro Correa de Lago compares it to Debret "Inferior apenas em termos de fama ao de Debret, o album de Rugendas, de concepcao diversa, e mais rico em vistas e menos atriado pela reconstituicao de cenas urbanas. Mas ambos sao extremamente valiosos na observacao precisa da realidade brasileira" (Pedro Correa do Lago, Brasiliana Itau, pp. 192.). Sabin 73934. Borba de Moraes, 754. Bosch 377.

        [Panoramic view of Sao Salvador].

      A strikingly beautiful aquatint view of Sao Salvador, published by Steinmann, after the designs of Kretschmar; it´s dimension and topographical and architectonical precision make this an invaluable testimony of how the city looked in the early 19th century: "Steinmann publicou tamben duas vistas de igual tamanho de Pernambuco, e uma da Bahia, todas rarissimas e muito estimadas pelos colecionadores, pelo impacto de suas cores intensas e pela precisao de detalhes topograficos e arquitetonicos" (Brasiliana Itau, p.81). The view is taken from the sea, allowing the viewer a comprehensive sight of the city, it´s buildings, structures, churches, and landscape; a few small skiffs and boats are portrayed, including one carrying well-dressed passengers. The key below the view, identifying the main buildings, is in manuscript, most likely a 19th century hand. The buildings identified are: Eglise de la Conception, Le Palais, Maison de L´Opera, Convent des Benedictines, Eglise St. Pierre, Convent Jerusalem, Consul de Hamburg, Eglise des Affites, Consult Anglais, Consul Francois, Jardin public, Fort Gamboa (Forte de Sao Paulo da Gamboa), S. Victoire. Besides the importance for the iconographic history of Bahia, this view is also important for the knowledge of Brazil´s colonial architecture, as Bahia was one of the earliest cities to be founded.

        Pah-She-Pah-How

      E. C. Biddle, Philadelphia 1835 - Hand-coloured lithograph by Lehman & Duval after C. B. King. In excellent condition. A fine image from McKenney and Hall's 'Indian Tribes of North America': `One of the most important [works] ever published on the American Indians' (Field),` a landmark in American culture' (Horan) and an invaluable contemporary record of a vanished way of life. Pashepahaw was a Sauk chieftain, known as the Stabber. He was a colleague and ally of Keokuk, and, therefore, opposed to Black Hawk. When Pashepahaw visited Washington in 1824, McKenney asked about him and learned that he had been insulted by an Indian agent (one of McKenney's men) and had promised to kill the man. A medicine man named Taimah learned of this and, though quite ill, traveled a considerable distance to warn the agent, who was ready when Pashepahaw arrived, and thus a frontier war was prevented. Pashepahaw was forced to back down, but kept his hair long thereafter. He lived long enough to be painted as an old man by George Catlin, who called him "a very venerable old man." McKenney and Hall's 'Indian Tribes of North America' has long been renowned for its faithful portraits of Native Americans. The portraits are largely based on paintings by the artist Charles Bird King, who was employed by the War Department to paint the Indian delegates visiting Washington D.C., forming the basis of the War Department's Indian Gallery. Most of King's original paintings were subsequently destroyed in a fire at the Smithsonian, and their appearance in McKenney and Hall's magnificent work is thus our only record of the likenesses of many of the most prominent Indian leaders of the nineteenth century. Numbered among King's sitters were Sequoyah, Red Jacket, Major Ridge, Keokuk and Wapello. After six years as Superintendent of Indian Trade, Thomas McKenney had become concerned for the survival of the Western tribes. He had observed unscrupulous individuals taking advantage of the Native Americans for profit, and his vocal warnings about their future prompted his appointment by President Monroe to the Office of Indian Affairs. As first director, McKenney was to improve the administration of Indian programs in various government offices. His first trip was during the summer of 1826 to the Lake Superior area for a treaty with the Chippewa, opening mineral rights on their land. In 1827, he journeyed west again for a treaty with the Chippewa, Menominee , and Winebago in the present state of Michigan. His journeys provided an unparalleled opportunity to become acquainted with Native American tribes. When President Jackson dismissed him from his government post in 1830, McKenney was able to turn more of his attention to his publishing project. Within a few years, he was joined by James Hall, a lawyer who had written extensively about the west. McKenney and Hall saw their work as a way of preserving an accurate visual record of a rapidly disappearing culture. (Gilreath). Cf. Howes M129; cf. Bennett 79; cf. Field 992; cf.

(cgc) T.P.L. 1808. A.B. 14866 & 14863. Lande 1426. Sabin 73381. Owing to the mistaken contention of the first voyage, Ross was not offered another command and this expedition was privately financed. It resulted in the discovery of King William Sound and the extensive survey of Boothia Peninsula, and the discovery of the magnetic pole by James Clark Ross. The dietary importance of fresh meat and oil in the particular climate was first ascertained on this voyage so that all but three men survived four winters and the loss of the Victory. .

        Drawings of Fungi Specimens found in Switzerland and Germany

      Switzerland, Germany, circa 1835. Manuscript mycology field notes in the form of pencil drawings with scientific annotations, classification references, and occasionally with the month in which a living specimen was either collected or observed in its habitat, made by an unidentified mycologist / botanist, and illustrating various species of fungi - edible, medicinal, and toxic. Comprising some 240 drawings on individual trimmed leafs, each mounted thematically with others of its type, with brass pins to the inside of folio double leafs. Text is in German, with some plant names also in Latin. The lot housed in the author's original string-tied portfolio boards, heavy green cardstock with manuscript inscription to front. This is a most uncommon manuscript work, profusely illustrated with pencil drawings, encyclopaedic in its scope, devoted strictly to the study and classification of mushrooms, and dating to formative era medicinal mycology. Numerous specimens shown were, and still are, popular and beneficial in homeopathic treatments. The present work is contemporary to notable pioneer mycologists such as Elias Magnus Fries, Christian Hendrik Persoon, Anton de Bary, and Lewis David von Schweinitz, though its author is unknown. The notes suggest that the writer observed living fungi specimens, between the months of May and October 1830, in Switzerland, Germany, and possibly London, drawing them on the spot, and subsequently identifying and classifying them according to the works of eighteenth century botanists. Specific regions identified include Münsterlingen and Scherzingen in Switzerland, as well as St. Katharine, which may be the ancient "Royal Peculiar" jurisdiction by the Tower of London which became a civil parish until 1895. In the nineteenth century, St. Katharine's by the Tower grew to be a village, flanking the banks of the River Thames. Aiding to date the work, one of the drawings is dated 2 June 1835. The drawing of honey fungus is annotated "Agaricus melleus" as it was then classified in the Agaricus genus, and later changed to the Armillaria genus in 1871. In addition, a single leaf found at the front of the volume is watermarked with a cameo and the name of Leopold Grosherzog von Baden, who in 1830 became the Grand Duke of Baden, the papermaker's name partially seen, André B.C. von Ac... Finally, the large folded leafs to which the drawings are mounted, are forged Whatman paper, watermarked "J.B. Whatman" with the crossed mid-section to the 'W' and the letter 'B' being clear revelations of forgery. [In the early nineteenth century, Whatman watermarks were commonly forged in France, Germany and Austria, as unscrupulous papermakers sought to gain from the name and reputation of Whatman.] The manuscript notes make frequent reference to "Schaeff." referring to Jacob Christian Schaeffer (1718-1790) who was an authoritative eighteenth century mycologist in Germany. [Jacob Christian Schaeffer was a German botanist, mycologist, zoologist, theologist, and clergyman, born in Saxony, residing at Regensberg for several years, and who wrote several botanical works between 1758 and 1767. From 1762 to 1764, he wrote four richly illustrated volumes on mycology, "Natürlich ausgemahlten Abbildungen baierischer und pfälzischer Schwämme, welche um Regensburg wachsen". In botany, "Schaeff." refers to Jacob Christian Schaeffer (1718-1790) whereas "Herr.-Schaeff." refers to Dr Gottlieb August Wilhelm Herrich-Schäffer (1799-1874).] Some examples found in the present lot of manuscript drawings and field notes: Agaricus violaceus. Schaeff. [Cortinarius violaceus] commonly known as the violet webcap or violet cort, a fungus in the webcap genus Cortinarius native across the Northern Hemisphere. The fruit bodies are dark purple mushrooms. Though they are edible, the appearance of these mushrooms is more distinctive than their taste. The species was first described by Carl Linnaeus in 1753, and has undergone several name changes. Christiaan Hendrik Persoon placed it in the Section Cortinaria of Agaricus in his 1801 work "Synopsis Methodica Fungorum". Cortinarius was established as a 'genus' by English botanist Samuel Frederick Gray in the first volume of his 1821 work "A Natural Arrangement of British Plants", where the species was recorded as Cortinaria violacea, 'the violet curtain-stool.' Agaricus melleus. Schaeff. [Armillaria mellea] commonly known as honey fungus, which causes Armillaria root rot in many plant species and produces mushrooms around the base of trees it has infected. They are edible but some people may be intolerant to them. The species was originally named Agaricus melleus by Danish-Norwegian botanist Martin Vahl in 1790; it was transferred to the genus Armillaria in 1871 by Paul Kummer. Agaricus galerituculatus. Schaeff. [Mycena galericulata ] a mushroom species known as the common bonnet, the toque mycena, or the rosy-gill fairy helmet. It is quite variable in color, size, and shape, which makes it somewhat difficult to reliably identify in the field. The mushrooms have caps with distinct radial grooves, particularly at the margin. Mycena galericulata is saprobic, and grows on decaying hardwood and softwood sticks, chips, logs, and stumps. It can also grow from submerged wood, which may give it a terrestrial appearance. The type species of the genus Mycena was first described scientifically as Agaricus galericulatus by Italian mycologist Giovanni Antonio Scopoli in 1772. It was sanctioned under this name by Elias Magnus Fries in his 1821 Systema Mycologicum, however, that same year, Samuel Frederick Gray transferred the species to the genus Mycena. Agarica maculatus. Schaeff. also known as the spotted agaricus, and at the time of this work, considered to be rare according to Mrs. Hussey. A leading mycologist of her day, Mrs. Anna Maria Hussey (1805-1853), wife of scientist and rector Thomas John Hussey described it as having only two types. Her collections eventually led to the publication of her two-volume work published between 1847 and 1855 and titled, "Illustrations of British mycology: Containing figures and descriptions of the funguses of interest and novelty indigenous to Britain." Edward Hamilton's 1852 title "The Flora Homeopathica... Medicinal Plants..." lists it for natural remedies. The 1884 issue of American Homeopathic Dispensatory also lists it as a medicinal plant. Agaricus is primarily a remedy for use by medical homeopaths because of its sphere of influence on the nervous system. Throughout the volume we also find references to "Bull." - the botanical abbreviation for Jean Baptiste François Pierre Bulliard (1752-1793) a French physician and botanist. Bulliard's Dictionnaire Elémentaire de Botanique (1783) contributed to the expansion and consolidation of botanical terminology and the Linné system. It was especially important in the area of the mycology, containing descriptions of 393 out of 602 table mushrooms. Significant species described by Bulliard include the cep (Boletus edulis), the common inkcap (Coprinopsis atramentaria) and the poisonous livid pinkgill (Entoloma sinuatum). Two sections of the present work are devoted to the genus Boletus and together include thirty-four (34) diagrams with descriptions. Some of these were observed at Münsterlingen in the canton of Thurgau, Switzerland. At least one was observed nearby at Scherzingen. The writer also notes Bulliard in relation to his drawing of an Agaricus pseudoaurantiacus, a wild and edible mushroom first mentioned by Bulliard in his "Herbier de la France" published in 1783. At least one reference is made to Röhl., being the citation for a botanical name associated with Johann Christoph Röhling (1757-1813), a German botanist and clergyman of Gundernhausen, near Darmstadt, and the author of an important treatise on German flora titled "Deutschlands Flora" first published in 1796. He also published a work on mosses of Germany titled "Deutschlands Moose" (1800). He was the taxonomic authority of the plant genus Melandrium (family Caryophyllaceae). The plant genus Roehlingia (family Dilleniaceae) was named after him by August Wilhelm Dennstedt. Historically, mycology was a branch of botany, because, although fungi are evolutionarily more closely related to animals than to plants, this was not recognized until a few decades ago. Mushrooms have been widely used in homeopathic remedies for centuries, especially in traditional Chinese medicine. Although medical mycology is a fairly recent sub-discipline of medicine, having gained ground since the Second World War, medico-mycological investigations began as early as 1842, at Greifswald in Germany, when Wilhelm Baum (1799-1883) was appointed to the chair of surgery of the university. In 1846, Carl Ferdinand Eichstedt (1816-1892) discovered a fungus to be the cause of the contagious nature of the skin condition pityriasis versicolor. Before all of this, German physician Christian Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), created the system of alternative medicine called homeopathy, publishing his scientific approach in a medical journal in 1796.

        Album d'un pessimiste] Oeuvres posthumes

      Librairie de Dumont 1835 - - Librairie de Dumont, Paris 1835, In-8 (13x20cm), 310pp. et 409pp., 2 volumes reliés. - Edition originale, très rare. On distingue 3 états : le premier, le nôtre, se distingue par la page de titre intitulée Oeuvres posthumes, comme pour le faux-titre. Le second état substitue une nouvelle page de titre intitulé Album d'un pessimiste, le faux-titre indiquant toujours Oeuvres posthumes (c'est l'état connu et décrit par Clouzot). Le troisième état connaît une nouvelle page de titre à la date de 1836, à nouveau intitulé Album d'un pessimiste, avec le faux-titre oeuvres posthumes (c'est l'état le plus courant) ; par contre la mention d'une notice de L'Héritier a disparu pour laisser la place à la mention d'une notice biographique (extraite de la Biographie universelle de Michaud). La notice de L'Heritier a été ôtée dès le premier état, en effet, de crainte de froisser certains contemporains cités, l'éditeur a préféré ne pas l'insérer. Les oeuvres de Rabbe sont précédés du poème de Victor Hugo : A Alphonse Rabbe, qu'on retrouvera dans Les chants du Crépuscule, parus en 1836. Ces Oeuvres posthumes furent réunis et édités par le neveu de l'écrivain Charles Rabbe, qui bénéficia pour ce faire d'une subvention du ministère de l'instruction publique. Reliures en demi chagrin noir d'époque. Dos à faux nerfs orné de filets gras à froid. Titre et tomaison dorés. Nom du possesseur en queue : Gauger. Petites traces de frottements en coiffes. 2 coins un peu émoussés. Rousseurs très pâles éparses. Bon exemplaire. Ecrivain noir et sombre, marqué par l'échec et l'inanité des choses, mort en 1829 des excès de l'opium (on ne sait si sa mort fut un suicide ou un dosage malencontreux d'opium), Rabbe enchantera Baudelaire, rencontrera la sollicitude touchante de Victor Hugo, et André Breton ne l'oubliera pas dans son anthologie. Toutes les pages de Rabbe sont pleines d'un romantisme maladif et fiévreux, hantées par le pessimisme et le désespoir dont la principale oeuvre qui fera sa renommée : Philosophie du désespoir, est emblématique de sa profonde mélancolie et de son culte pour la mort. Les essais, commentaire et maximes, poèmes en prose jalonnent ces Oeuvres posthumes, modèle du romantisme noir. On retiendra avec le plus grand intérêt la rareté exceptionnelle de ce tout premier état de l'oeuvre majeure de Alphonse Rabbe inconnu à Clouzot et à la plupart des bibliographes. La Bibliothèque Nationale de France ne possède que le second état, et les catalogues français ne possèdent que des exemplaires à la date de 1836.

Harper were pioneers in the area of series publishing. Harper's Family Library, advertised as the "cheapest series of popular works ever published," grew over fifteen years to include 187 non-fiction titles. "The program encompassed the principal branches of "useful knowledge:" history, voyages and travel, biography, natural history, physical sciences, agriculture, and the history of philosophy and religion. It was suggested that the intellectual value of any one book was enhanced by its being part of an approved system or circle of knowledge." (Freeman, Harper and BrotherÃÆ'ƒÂ¢ÃÆ'¢â€šÂ¬ÃÆ'¢â€žÂ¢s Family and School District Libraries, 1830-1846, 2013) This is an oversized or heavy book, that requires additional postage for international delivery outside the US.
