        Designs for Ornamental Villas.

      London: James Carpenter, 1836. Quarto, lithograph title and 96 lithograph plates; original quarter roan. Third edition of this classic architectural pattern book. Robinson (1776-1858) was a prolific and versatile designer of country mansions and picturesque cottages. In the present work he provides sixteen designs, some of which were executed, for twelve residences, two lodges, a garden house, and stables. "The range of styles represented perhaps was the most eclectic in British architectural literature to date" (Archer): Swiss, Grecian, Palladian, Old English, Castellated, Ancient Manor House, Modern Italian, Anglo-Norman, Henry VII, Elizabethan, Ancient Timber, and Tuscan. Each design is illustrated in plan, elevation, and 'Scenic View'. Most of the scenic views were drawn on stone by J.D. Harding and printed on India paper.Of course Robinson's promotion of the cottage orné proved influential in Australia, where it became a popular architectural style with colonial architects (see Broadbent, The Australian Colonial House, p. 354). Some spotting as always but very good.

        Sonatina nach dem Duett: Strahlt auf mich der Blitz des Goldes" aus der Oper: Der Barbier von Sevilla von Rossini. Für das Pianoforte zu vier Händen eingerichtet von . No. 33 der vierhândigen Sonatinen. No. 1836.

      Braunschweig, Im Musikalischen Magazine von J.P. Spehr, n.d. - Oblong folio (25.6 x 31 cm.), contemporary (Brazilian?) crimson sheep (minor wear at extremities), smooth spine gilt, covers elaborately gilt with imperial arms of Brazil gilt, initials "P.D.J." above arms on front cover, edges of covers milled gilt; marbled endleaves, text block edges sprinkled blue-green. Engraved title page. Engraved musical notation throughout. On thick paper of excellent quality. Some worming, mostly in the blank margins, but sometime affecting text, but without affecting legibility. A few small, light dampstains. The binding in very good to fine condition; text in less than good condition. (5 ll.), title page unnumbered, verso and following pp. numbered 24-31, final p. blank. *** A duet for piano based on an aria in Rossini's Barber of Seville, which premiered in 1816. Anton Diabelli (1781-1858) was an Austrian music publisher, editor and composer. With Pietro Cappi, he established a music publishing business in 1818; they focused on arranging popular pieces such as opera tunes so that they could be played by amateurs at home. Diabelli also wrote guitar music, an operetta, several masses, and piano four-hand pieces like this one that were quite popular. Today he is best known for what began as a publicity stunt: he wrote a patriotic waltz and invited every important Austrian composer to compose a variation on it. Fifty-one composers submitted entries, including Schubert, Carl Czerny, Ignaz Moscheles, and eight-year-old Franz Liszt. Beethoven submitted thirty-three variations, commonly known as the Diabelli Variations (Op. 120), which constitutes one of Beethoven's greatest piano works.Provenance: "P.D.J." stands for "Princesa Dona Januária", the second daughter of D. Pedro I, Emperor of Brazil and King of Portugal as D. Pedro IV, and his first wife Maria Leopoldina, Archduchess of Austria, Empress consort of Brazil, and Queen consort of Portugal (1797-1826), daughter of the last Holy Roman Emperor Franz II (later Franz I of Austria). Dona Januária was born in Rio de Janeiro, in the Palácio de São Cristóvão, Quinta da Boa Vista, 1822. From 1835 until 1845, she held the title Princess Imperial of Brazil, as the heir presumptive of her brother the Emperor D. Pedro II. Her marriage to Prince Luigi of the Two Sicilies, Count of Aquila (brother of D. Pedro II's new wife, Empress Teresa Cristina) was celebrated on 28 April 1844 in Rio de Janeiro. Her husband was a son of King Francesco I of the Two Sicilies and his second wife the Infanta Maria Isabella of Spain. Friction developed between the Count of Aquila and D. Januária's brother, the Emperor D. Pedro II. D. Januária and Aquila were eventually permitted to leave Brazil in October 1844. In 1845, D. Januária's position as heir presumptive, and the restrictions it entailed, was lost with the birth of D. Pedro II's first child, D. Afonso, Prince Imperial of Brazil. The city of Januária in Minas Gerais was named in her honor. She died in Nice in 1901.*** Regarding the binding, cf. Brasiliana Itaú, ?Encadernação no Brasil?, especially p. 477, for a binding on a book of Rio de Janeiro, 1824, with some of the same or very similar tooling. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Voyage Autour du Monde, fait par ordre de sa majesté l'Empereur Nicolas 1er sur la Corvette Le Seniavine, dans les années 1826, 1827, 1828 et 1829 [with] Partie nautique text volume.

      Paris and St. Petersburg: Lithographie de Engelmann et Compagnie; C. Hintze, 1835-1836. Two volumes comprising: Atlas folio, with 51 lithographed plates and three maps (one folding); original quarter morocco and marbled boards; the quarto text volume with five coastal profiles (two folding) and 10 maps (one folding); including a large folding map of "Aliaska" tipped in between pages 274 and 275 (not mentioned by Lada-Mocarski or any other authority); contemporary half roan with cloth sides, A substantial portion of the very rare official account of the Lütke voyage, one of the rarest and most beautiful of all illustrated Pacific voyage publications, featuring fine lithographic plates of Alaska and the Northwest Coast, the Caroline Islands, Guam and the Philippines.The full account of the voyage comprises two discrete publications since the Historical and Hydrographical sections were separately published by different publishers. In addition, some parts were available in either Russian or French versions (the complicated bibliography of these editions is fully dealt with by Lada-Mocarski in his Bibliography of Books on Alaska published before 1868).All printed materials relating to the Lütke voyage are notoriously rare. This is the famous American voyage collector Fred Ellis's set of this voyage, which comprises the Historical Atlas, published in Paris by Engelmann to accompany either French or Russian versions of the text; the two text volumes for the Partie Historique are supplied here in a modern facsimile of the French version (Amsterdam, 1971). These are accompanied by the Russian-published French-language text volume of the Hydrographical section. The Hydrographical atlas is not presentComplete sets of both parts (that is, with both text and atlas volumes) are virtually impossible to obtain; the French edition, which is just as rare as the Russian, is said to have been almost entirely bought by Russians (Brunet, quoted by Lada-Mocarski) explaining its extraordinary rarity today.The Lütke expedition of 1826-1829 was the last great Russian scientific voyage to the Northwest coast of America. The expedition sailed to the Pacific via Cape Horn, and reached Sitka on the Northwest Coast and spent over a month there. They continued north to Unalaska and the Aleutian Islands, before sailing into the Bering Sea and surveying the coast of the Alaskan Peninsula. As winter approached the expedition turned southward to the Caroline group of Micronesia where they stayed for most of 1828, followed by Guam and the Philippines. The return voyage stopped at St Helena Island in the south Atlantic before finishing at Kronstadt in September 1829.The 51 plates in the atlas, many of them comprising two images, were lithographed by the Parisian specialist printer Engelmann from the original drawings. Working in Paris from 1816, Godefroy Engelmann was the pioneer and best exponent of the new techniques of lithography in book illustration that gradually replaced older methods from the 1820s onwards. In this copy the plates are examples of the more desirable form identified by Lada-Mocarski, printed on fine India paper and mounted into the atlas rather than printed directly onto thick paper.Renowned for their exceptional detail and finesse, the plates are rivalled only by those of Choris as the finest nineteenth-century depictions of the Pacific. They comprise sensitive portraits, landscapes, village scenes, native habitations, canoes and sailing craft, tools and weapons, and more. The depictions of tropical foliage are of exceptional quality. The plates are significant as an ethnographic record of the indigenous peoples of the Northwest coast, Unalaska, Kamchatka and present-day Micronesia. Some water stains on the upper margins of the text pages and the plates of the Atlas; of the text a few pages lightly foxed, and with marginal annotations in pencil and in ink by the Pacific scholar and collector George Davidson and his ownership signature on the title-page. Contemporary half roan, cloth sides renewed.

Vol. I: XXI, [2 = table], [1 blank], 25-441, [3 index]; Vol. II: engraved frontispiece, 67 plates, 3 maps (2 folding), (cf. photo #1), 1 engraved sketch of all institutes for the deaf and dumb and their professors. +++ Contemp. half calf, spines richly gilt with raised bands, marbled edges. Vol. II on handmade paper (Büttenpapier). First edition. The first work on the education of the deaf and dumb to attract international attention. It was published as a help for teaching the deaf mutes, with detailed exposition of the system both in the text and on the numerous figures or scenes on the fine plates. Czech regarded thinking as a mental activity being innate in each individual. Articulated speech may make the process easier but is not intrinsically necessary. He therefore thought it both morally and legally a duty to provide education to the deaf and dumb. Czech had been professor of philosophy at the Theresianischen Ritter-Akademie in Vienna and in 1818 was appointed professor at the famous Wiener Taubstummen Institut. This institute had been founded in 1779 by Maria Theresia after the example of the French Institution Nationale des Sourds Muets of the famous Abbe de l'Epee. +++ Covers well preserved, for overall outside condition and details see photo # 2. Vol. I: some foxing on FEPs and index pp., else spotless and bright. Vol. II: faded small stamps on front and end paper. Paper edges foxed.

It mainly describes experiments on viper venom and other poisons like the poison called ticunas by American Indians, the European cherry laurel tree (Prunus laurocerasus), tobacco oil, etc. Fontana also here for the first time publishes his letter describing "Fontana's canal," an important ophthalmological discovery. The work is also important in the field of neurology, since it contains Fontana's observations on the structure and reproduction of nerves, with the first illustrations ever of nerves as seen with a microscope. Some occasional minor spots, bindings rubbed, both volumes with slightly damaged hinges. Very good set of a very important work on serpent venoms and other poisons.

Vorsatz fehlt, Buchblock unbeschnitten, durchgeh. m. Spuren v. Wassereinwirkung und an der re. unt. Ecke mit Knickspur. Borst 2356, Brieger 1836, Rabenlechner I, 60, WG11. Erste Ausgabe. Krähwinkeliade mit Bezug auf die Revolutionswirren jener Zeit. Die am 1. Juli 1848 am Wr. Carl-Theater uraufgeführte Volkskomödie ist das einzige Stück, das Nestroy nicht unter dem Druck der Zensur geschrieben hat, da es in dem kurzen Zensurfreien Zeitraum (14. März-11. Nov. 1848) verfasst und aufgeführt wurde. Unter großem Jubel wurde das Werk bis zum Ende der Saison 36-mal gespielt. Das Stück verherrlicht die Ideen und Erfolge der Revolution und zeichnet gleichzeitig ein satirisches Bild der kleinsinnigen Nutznießer und engstirnigen Opfer der Revolution. "Am 31. Oktober besetzte die Armee des Fürsten Windischgrätz die Stadt und mit der Herrlichkeit der Freiheit in Krähwinkel war es zu Ende, in den Straßen und auf der Bühne. Es war nur eine Posse gewesen. - Sie hat großen Wert als von Gedanken durchleuchtetes und über sich selbst hinaus deutendes Zeitdokument ... " (Franz H. Mautner, Nestroy, 1978, Ss.298-302). - Die Illustrationen in zeitgenössischem Kolorit zeigen drei Szenenbilder nach Aquarellen von Johann Christian Schoeller (1782-1851) mit Johann Nestroy als Eberhard Ultra.

        Système pénitentiaire aux Etats-Unis et de son application en France; suivi d'un appendice sur les colonies pénales, et de notes statistiques; seconde édition entièrement refondue et augmentée d'une introduction, etc

      Paris, Charles Gosselin, 2° éd, 1836. 1836, 1836, in-4, 2 volumes de I: (4), 394pp. - II: (4), 374pp, 5 pl. dont 2 dépl, demi-chagrin vert à coins, dos à nerfs orné de caissons dorés (Boersch), Seconde edition, augmentée d'une introduction nouvelle (dans laquelle le système pénal de l'Angleterre et de la France sont examinés, et qui formerait à elle seule déjà un bel ouvrage) et d'extraits d'articles émanés de la presse française et étrangère dans lequel cet ouvrage a été l'objet d'un examen (on trouvera ces extraits rassemblés par l'éditeur en fin du second volume). Partis ensemble aux Etats-Unis en 1831 afin d'examiner le système carcéral américain, et surtout le système politique, Beaumont et Tocqueville publient en janvier 1833 leur livre "Du système pénitentiaire aux Etats-Unis et de son application en France". Après la parution de l'ouvrage, Beaumont est relevé de ses fonctions de substitut; Tocqueville se solidarise avec lui et démissionne de son poste de juge suppléant. Peu après, Toqueville rédigera De la démocratie en Amérique, paru en 1835, et qui deviendra un immense succès populaire. En 1841, Tocqueville affirmera dans une lettre que "le premier ouvrage que nous ayons publié en commun M. de Beaumont et moi sur les prisons d'Amérique, a eu pour rédacteur unique M. de Beaumont. Je n'ai fourni que mes observations et quelques notes" (Lettre à R-A. Mignet). Il semble néanmoins avoir rédigé lui-même les notes et études statistiques de l'ouvrage qui reçoit le prix Montyon, décerné par l'Académie française aux ouvrages les plus utiles aux moeurs. Quelques rousseurs, pages 1 à 17 reliées dans le désordre. Bel exemplaire complet de ses 5 planches qui sont dans un état remarquable

Eight vols. 8vo, orig. patterned wrappers (some mostly marginal dampstaining; minor worming, sometimes touching the text, carefully repaired), orig. block-printed title labels on upper wrappers, new stitching. Edo & Kyoto: 1836-42. First edition, and a complete run, of the first medical journal published in Japan. It was edited by Genpo Mitsukuri (1799-1863), who studied western medicine in Edo with Udagawa Genshin. After practicing for several years, Mitsukuri became a full-time scholar and translator of Dutch books, including the standard Dutch/Japanese grammar. He was engaged by the government as an interpreter for international negotiations with the Russians in 1853 and 1854 and his translation of a Western work on steam engines was used to build Japan's first steamboat. This is a complete run of "Japan's first medical journal…includes translations of sixteen articles that had been published in the Dutch journal Practisch tijdschrift voor de geneeskunde (1822-1856), edited by Anthonij Moll and Cornelis van Eldik. Udagawa Yoan wrote a preface for the first volume in 1836, and Tsuboi Shindo a preface for the second volume. Ito Genboku, Otsuki Shunsai, Hayashi Dokai, Ogata Koan, and Aoki Kenzo, another student of von Siebold's, all contributed to this journal."-Ann Jannetta, The Vaccinators: Smallpox, Medical Knowledge, and the 'Opening' of Japan.

Johnson esq./ of Utica/ N.Y."' Johnson was an Amewrican philosopher and banker."Johnson asserted that language is "subordinate" to nature because there are not enough words to describe limitless experiences. To reconcile this inconsistency, he devised an operational method of studying the function of language, differentiating its "physical," "emotional," and "intellectual" components. He adapted his linguistic theory in writings on politics, economics, and morality. Ency. Brit. Original cloth, paper label, top of spine repaired. Booklabel of the Library of the University Institute, with withdrawal stamp The original dedition was published in 1828 and revised in 1836. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        View on the Thames Shewing Goding's New Lion Ale Brewery, The Wharfs, Shot Factories, and the Lambeth end of Waterloo Bridge

      Published by John Moore, corner of West Street St Martins Lane, [1836]., London, - New Lion Brewery Etching and aquatint with original hand colour. Goding's Brewery was built in 1836, to a design by Francis Edwards. The Goding family, headed by Thomas Goding, were one of the most successful brewing dynasties of the nineteenth century. The site was particularly desirable because there was a waterworks next door, which the Godings bought and incorporated into the brewery in 1853. The brewery was eventually taken over by another brewing company, Hoare and Co., before being demolished. The Royal Festival Hall now stands in its place. The only trace of the original brewery is the large lion visible on the top of the building, made of artificial Coade stone (see item 45). It now stands on the South Bank at the east end of Westminster Bridge.Francis Calcraft Turner (1782-1846) was an English artist dealing predominantly in sporting scenes.George Hunt together with his brother Charles (fl.1820-1870) were both highly skilled engravers who worked mainly on sporting scenes. Image: 398 by 619mm (15.75 by 24.25 inches). Sheet: 490 by 690mm (19.25 by 27.25 inches). BM 1880,1113.1379.

        De la démocratie en Amérique.

      Paris: Librairie de Charles Gosselin,, 1836?40. Orné d'une carte d'Amérique. 4 volumes, octavo (208 x 128 mm). Contemporary brown calf, twin black morocco labels, tooling in gilt to flat bands and in blind to compartments, double rule gilt to boards, dark grey endpapers. Large coloured engraved folding map as frontispiece. 20th-century bookseller's stamp to rear free endpapers. Small dampstains to boards of Volumes 1 and 2, boards slightly scuffed, a few tiny chips to tips of spines, dampstaining to bottom inner hinges in Volume 1, sporadic foxing. A very good set. Fourth editions of Volumes 1 and 2, published one year after the firsts, first editions of Volumes 3 and 4. Arising out of the tour of America that de Tocqueville undertook to examine the penitentiary system, Democracy in America was early recognized not only as a remarkably insightful study of the origins and nature of American society and consequently her unique institutions, but also as a founding document of a new form of social and political science. It was justly praised by John Stuart Mill in the London Review in such terms as to guarantee its immediate and continued success; "It has at once taken its rank among the most remarkable productions of our time; and is a book with which, both for its facts and its speculations, all who would understand, or who are called upon to exercise influence over their age, are bound to be familiar. It will contribute to give to the political speculations of our time a new character." It ran to thirteen editions by 1850 and each of its part was translated into English in the same year it was first published. Mill's farsightedness in terms of de Tocqueville's influence is confirmed in a recent review of an updated translation by Robert P. George, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence at Princeton, and Director of that university's James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions, "Democracy in America will continue to be read with profit as long as the United States survives as a republic and, indeed, as long as democracy endures.

        The English bijou almanac for 1837.

      London: Albert Schloss, 1836. Miniature (2 cm, .787"); in a publisher's slipcase slightly larger. 64 pp.; 7 plts., 4 music pp. A delightful contradiction: a "practical" almanac, in a wildly impractical, less than thumbnail-size presentation. In addition to its calendrical information, this miniature gem of a volume features seven engraved portraits, each of which is accompanied by poetry from Letitia Elizabeth Landon ("L.E.L."). => At the back are four pages of sheet music ? surely impossible to play from! ? for the Rondo from Balfe's "Maid of Artois." The book's extreme tininess led one contemporary reviewer to conclude that it had been provided by "the Bookseller to all the faeries" (Gentleman's Magazine, Feb. 1837).    This is a copy of the second English Bijou Almanac. Schloss's series of miniature almanacs, often given as => gift books, began with the one for 1836 (published in 1835) and ended with that for 1843. Those for 1836?38 did not bear Schloss's name in the title, that was added beginning with the almanac for 1839. "Schloss engaged Benjamin Reese Davies, a specialist in engraved script . . . to engrave the . . . series. His skill and consistency are apparent in both the text and portraits on steel plates" (Bromer & Edison, p. 95). Once the engraving was accomplished the work was transferred to a lithographic stone for actual printing, the whole process being called "transfer lithography" (Bain, p. 8)    Binding: Orchid-colored paper, wrappers with gilt-stamped lyre and wreath motif, all edges gilt. Volume housed in a velvet- and silk-lined tan morocco clamshell case with "Bijou" gilt-stamped on its front within a strapwork frame; case with a hook and eye closing mechanism, still intact and working.         Welsh 2656; Spielmann 140; Bromer & Edison, Miniature Books, 94?97, and 100. On the printing via transfer lithography, see: Iain Bain, Albert Schloss's bijou almanacs (London, 1969). Binding as above, covers rubbed, slipcase slightly worn with title faded and small scuff at the clasp where the hook opens; almanac perhaps once within a paper slipcase within the leather one. Pages very slightly age-toned, otherwise clean. => Impossibly petite, and marvelously pleasing.
