        La Sacra Bibbia tradotta in lingua italiana, e commentata da Giovanni Diodati, di nation lucchese. Seconda editione, migliorata ed accrescita. con l’aggiunta de’ Sacri Salmi, messi in rime per lo medesimo

      DIODATI Giovanni, - In folio; sontuosa legatura coeva in piena pelle, dorso a cinque nervi, piatti decorati a secco con angolari e decoro centrale in ottone sbalzato, tracce di fermagli; pp. (4), 837 (Antico Testamento), (1 bianca), 331 (Nuovo Testamento), 148, 68 (Testi apocrifi e Salmi). Antiporta incisa su rame da Abraham Bosse con titolo entro cornice architettonica sormontata da un libro aperto. Marca tipoografica al frontespizio. Tavola dei libri scritturali canonici in principio. Capilettera ornati su legno. Ampie note esegetiche in calce. Consuete bruniture, restauri al margine interno e superiore dell'antiporta, strappo restaurato alle pp. 107/108, ma ottima copia genuina e ben legata. Sul risguardo anteriore libero nota di possesso in retoromanzo di un certo Sebastian Marcadant datata 1837. Al verso dell'antiporta preghiera sempre in retoromanzo ma di mano più antica. SECONDA EDIZIONE INTERAMENTE RIVISTA ED AMPLIATA della Bibbia protestante del Diodati. A questa nuova edizione, che riflette il mutato spirito die tempi (dopo il massacro della Valtellina del 1620 era ormai chiaro che l'Italia non poteva più essere riformata), fu aggiunto un ampio commento, dei sommari ai capitoli e la versione in versi dei Salmi che Diodati aveva pubblicato nel 1631 (I Sacri Salmi messi in rime italiane). "Questa seconda edizione. è una versione dell'età matura che costituisce una vera e propria opera letteraria; il rispetto degli originali, evidenziato dall'accorgimento di segnalare in corsivo le proprie aggiunte, non impedisce al Diodati di usare tutta la ricchezza che la lingua italiana aveva maturato nella fioritura letteraria dei secoli precedenti, dimostrando grande autonomia e padronanza della lingua. Le non poche varianti tra l'edizione del 1607 e quella del 1641 attestano un maggior approfondimento del testo ebraico e la conoscenza di molti sussidi grammaticali ed esegetici, oltre a una maggior cura dello stile. L'ampliamento dell'apparato esegetico dimostra anche il cambiamento del pubblico cui si rivolgeva la sua traduzione: l'edizione del 1641 ha soprattutto un intento catechetico ed è rivolta alle famiglie della Chiesa italiana di Ginevra e a tutte le comunità riformate sparse per il mondo" (I. Zatelli, a cura di, La Bibbia a Stampa da Gutenberg a Bodoni, 1991, Firenze, nr. 132). Il Diodati, membro di una importante famiglia calvinista ginevrina originaria di Lucca, fu professore di teologia e di lingua ebraica a Ginevra. La sua fama è soprattutto legata alla traduzione italiana delle Sacre Scritture (1607 e successive revisioni), che fu tradotta anche in francese nel 1644, condotta direttamente sulle lingue originali. Amico di John Milton e di Paolo Sarpi, compì una missione a Venezia; in quell'occasione sollecitò il distacco dalla Chiesa di Roma e l'adesione al protestantesimo. La sua importantissima versione italiana, aspramente contrastata nei secoli dai cattolici, fu largamente letta ed ammirata dai Valdesi, soprattutto quelli stanziati nelle valli del Piemonte. La traduzione del Diodati rimase in vigore nella Chiesa Valdese sino al 1924, quando fu fatta una revisione rimasta poi la versione ufficiale delle Chiese evangeliche italiane. Per l'importanza che ricoprì nel corso dei secoli e per i pregi di stile, essa viene non infondatamente accostata alla Bibbia inglese di Re Giacomo e alla Bibbia tedesca di Lutero. Darlow e Moule, 5600 ("His pure Italian style is not vitiated by French influence"); N. Bingen, Philausone (1500-1660), nr. 133. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Philosophy of Natural History.

      London: Scott, Webster & Geary, 1837. Duodecimo, frontispiece and engraved title-page; contemporary roan with gilt to spine and boards. An attractive fore-edge painting based upon the famous Sydney Cove view engraved by Edward Dayes. This image, transmitted through various forms (from oil on canvas to engraving to fore-edge painting) is believed to be the work of convict artist Thomas Watling. Engravings by Dayes after originals by Watling feature in the First Fleet accounts of Collins and Hunter, and are now iconic Australiana images. The present for-edge rendition is skillfully executed, painted under the gilding and only to be revealed only when the pages are gently fanned. An old clipping from a booksellers catalogue advertising this book (circa 1930) notes the Sydney view, and the pastedown bears the bookplate of New Zealand book collector and art critic E. C. Simpson. Binding lightly rubbed, very good overall.

Dans celle de l'expédition de Constantine Hutin narre, de façon spectaculaire, héroïque et pittoresque, les difficiles conditions météorologiques que dut subir l'armée française durant l'expédition et le siège de Constantine, ainsi que les batailles violentes et régulières entre l'armée d'occupation française et les troupes d'Ahmed Bey. Néanmoins, la plus grande partie de sa "Relation" constitue une statistique chirurgicale de médecine de guerre. Dans la deuxième relation, tiré-à-part extrait du Journal hebdomadaire de médecine du 29 août 1929, Félix Hutin étudie les conditions climatiques auxquelles sont soumis les soldats de l'Europe tempéré, et les épidémies qui affaiblissent les armées françaises.

        [Greenland Gyrfalcon] Falco Candicans

      London: [by the Author, 1837. Lithograph, coloured by hand, after J. Wolf and H. C. Richter, printed by Walter. (Slightly trimmed along the right side). A beautiful image from John Gould's The Birds of Great Britain: "A magnificent work with life-like portraits of birds of the British Isles" (Wood). This plate, from what Sacheverell Sitwell called "The most popular of all his works" (Fine Bird Books), shows a new liveliness of treatment that is not present in Gould's earlier works. This improvement is thanks to suggestions made by Joseph Wolf, who drew 57 of the plates and accompanied Gould on an ornithological tour of Scandinavia in 1856. Gould's illustrations were all painstakingly coloured by hand, as he states in his preface: "Many of the public are quite unaware how the colouring of these large plates is accomplished; and not a few believe that they are produced by some mechanical process or by chromo-lithography. This, however, is not the case: every sky with its varied tints and every feather of each bird were coloured by hand; and when it is considered...it will most likely cause some astonishment to those who give the subject a thought."

The new and best edition published ten years after James's death, edited by Captain Chamier, RN, additions include an account of the Burmese War and the Battle of Navarino. Originally conceived when James was imprisoned as a British national in the United States when war broke out in 1812 between the two powers, it was first published between 1822 and 1824. This history was for a long time seen as an important reference source with the Navy Records Society publishing an index in 1895. It has been cited by both Patrick O'Brian and C. S. Forester as an important source of information for their novels. The perceived anti-American bias of the book moved Theodore Roosevelt as an undergraduate to write a response published as 'The Naval War of 1812'. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Der Geheime Staatsrat Stägemann war als Mitarbeiter für die neue Zeitschrift, die erst 'Zeitlosen' heißen sollte, bereits gewonnen, als er auf allerhöchsten Befehl seinen Beitrag zurückziehen musste, da „an diesen Schriften (des Jungen Deutschland) ein Makel hafte." Da Stägemanns Sonett bereits auf den Seiten 1-3 gedruckt war und der nächste Beitrag auf S. 4 begann, musste Mundt in größter Eile Ersatz schaffen: Seite 1 wurde weggeschnitten, Seite 3 wurde neu gedruckt mit einem sehr geistreich gewählten Motto Goethes, gegen den ja nicht mal der Zensor etwas haben konnte.

        VINDICIAE AMERICANAE. LETTER TO THE RIGHT HON. SIR ROBERT PEEL, BART., M.P. IN REFUTATION OF THE CALUMNIOUS ATTACKS ON AMERICA AND HER CITIZENS...

      London: James Ridgeway...Rich, Red Lion Square, 1837. Self wrappers, stitched, as issued. Uneven toning to front wrapper, some foxing, marginal pencil annotations throughout. Good plus. Untrimmed. [with:] A CORRECT REPORT OF SIR ROBERT PEEL'S SPEECHES AT GLASGOW, JANUARY, 1837. London. 1837. [8],100,4pp. plus engraved plate. Original blue printed wrappers. Spine ends chipped, minor soiling and spotting to wrappers. Mild foxing along foredge. Good plus. On Jan. 13, 1837, Sir Robert Peel made a speech in Glasgow in which he attacked the American political system, and especially the favorable things that the French historian and political philosopher Alexis de Tocqueville said about American democracy in his DEMOCRACY IN AMERICA. Peel had been Prime Minister 1834- 35, and would be again, but at the moment he was out of office. Tocqueville's famous work had been published in Paris in 1835, and translated to English by the journalist Henry Reeve in 1836. The book was thus the subject of much discussion when Peel made his speech, in which he questioned both the political system of the United States and Tocqueville's viewpoint. This rare pair of works closely relates to Peel's speech, both inscribed to Tocqueville by English friends of his. The first work is a pamphlet by an unknown "Citizen of the United States of North America," published by the American bookseller Obadiah Rich, who was a resident in London. The author is unknown, although it is possible that it was Rich himself. The pamphlet attacks Peel for his anti-American stance and his remarks on Tocqueville. This copy is inscribed to Tocqueville "with H.R.'s regards," probably a gift from Henry Reeve, who of course knew Tocqueville well (Tocqueville seems to acknowledge receipt in a letter to Reeve, dated March 22, 1837). Of utmost importance here are the marginal pencil annotations in French, made by Tocqueville, in which he features prominently in the text, and is even quoted to a great degree, especially after page 8. Approximately 140 times throughout, Tocqueville denotes an English word in the text with a small "+" and provides the French translation for the word in the margin, in his own hand. He obviously read the pamphlet with close attention. The second work is also inscribed to Tocqueville, in this instance by well-known traveller Capt. Basil Hall, directing Tocqueville to where Peel references him ("see page 82"). This contains the full text of Peel's nasty speech, where he discusses and quotes Tocqueville from pages 82 to p.86, referring to him as a "very able and intelligent Frenchmen, who has made the institutions of the United States the peculiar object of his observation and study," but dismissing his ideas. A wonderful pair of works relating to Alexis de Tocqueville, closely relating to the reception of DEMOCRACY IN AMERICA, and one with the famed author's extensive marginalia. VINDICIAE: SABIN 99832.

Rigurosamente completo de las 100 páginas (incluida portada) que debe tener. En efecto, además de alguna de las litografías, en la mayoría de los ejemplares suelen faltar algunas o todas las hojas en blanco por ambas caras que tiene que haber debido a la planificación de la obra: a cada personaje se le dedicaron un grabado y un doble folio del que las dos últimas páginas quedaban en blanco cuando el texto no ocupó nada más que las dos primeras. Las armas repujadas en la encuadernación son las que aparecen en las cubiertas de la obra: las del rey de España que estuvieron en vigor hasta 1931, sin la presencia de Navarra entre sus cuarteles y con los de territorios que hacía mucho no pertenecían a la corona española. Es escasísima la información existente sobre Isidore Jean-Baptiste Maguès. Por nuestra parte, apenas podemos aportar que creemos que nació en Toulouse en 1810 y que habría muerto pobre, enloquecido y solo en Londres en 1869, donde residiría desde al menos 1850 y donde su muerte se relató como la de un martir del arte que se había ido hundiendo y sumiendo en una suprema ansiedad mientras dejaba de comer al dedicarse en cuerpo y alma a la que decía sería su gran obra: "L'Entente cordiale: un épisode de la guerre de Crimée", para la que había preconcebido un precio astronómico para le época: 2.000 libras esterlinas. Antes de emigrar a Inglaterra había participado en el salón de Paris de 1846 y tenía obra en el Palais Royal.- // Refs.: CCPB 000298313-3 y 000391468-2; Palau, 147309.

        To-Ka-Con [To-Ka Cou], A Sioux Chief

      Philadelphia: E. C. Biddle, 1837. Hand-coloured lithograph by J.T. Bowen after a portrait by George Cooke done in 1837. 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. Tokacou, or He Who Inflicts the First Wound was a Yankton Sioux warrior and a member of the tribal police force. This elite group maintained high standards of discipline in the community, meting out appropriate punishments when required to, including the death penalty. Here he is portrayed with the sword of authority at the ready. He was signer of several important treaties in the 1820s and 30s. 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 Black Hawk. 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.

        Recherches sur la probabilité des jugements en matière criminelle et en matière civile, précédées des règles générales du calcul des probabilités.

      Bachelier, Paris: 1837 - 2 First edition of the work that presented Poisson’s ‘Law of large numbers.’ "He improved Laplace’s work by relating it explicitly to Jacob Sernoulli’s fundamental theorem and by showing that the invariance in the prior probabilities of mutually exclusive events is not a necessary condition for calculating the approximate probabilities. It is also from Poisson that we derive the study of a problem that Laplace had passed over, the case of great asymmetry between opposite events, such that the prior probability of either event is very small." – DSB (p. 489). "Poisson’s major work on probability was a book, Recherches sur la probabilité , published in 1837. The book was in large part a treatise on probability theory after the manner of Laplace, with an emphasis on the behavior of means of large numbers of measurements. The latter portion (p. 318-415) dealt with the subject matter of the title. Some of this material was taken from memoirs Poisson published in the two preceding years. Only a charitable modern reading could identify a new concept in the work; yet the book contains the germ of the two things now most commonly associated with the Poisson’s name. The first of these is the probability distribution now commonly called the Poisson distribution In a section of the book concerned with the form of the binomial distribution for large numbers of trials, Poisson does in fact derive this distribution in its cumulative form, as a limit to the binomial distribution when the chance of a success is very small. The distribution appears on only one page in all of Poisson’s work (see p. 206). Although it is given no special emphasis tis brief notice did catch the eye of Cournot, who republished it in 1843 with calculations demonstrating the effectiveness of the approximation (Cournot, 1843 ). The second most common appearance of Poisson’s name in modern literature is in connection with a generalization of the Bernoulli law of large numbers." – Stigler. "[This work is] significant for the author’s participation in an important contemporary debate. The legitimacy of the application of the calculus to areas relating to the moral order, that is to say within the broad area of what is now called the humanistic sciences, was bitterly disputed beginning in 1820 in politically conservative circles. Poission was bold enough to take pen in hand to defend the universality of the probabilistic thesis and to demonstrate the conformability to the order of nature of the regularities that the calculus of probability, without recourse to hidden causes, reveals when things are subjected to a great number of observations." –DSB (pp. 489). LAID WITHIN THIS VOLUME ARE FIVE PAGES (ON FOUR LEAVES) OF MATHEMATICAL NOTATIONS IN FRENCH, SUGGESTING AN OWNERSHIP (UNKNOWN) PRIOR TO PEARSON. Karl Pearson (1857-1936) "was a major player in the early development of statistics as a serious scientific discipline in its own right. He founded the Department of Applied Statistics (now the Department of Statistical Science) at University College London in 1911; it was the first university statistics department in the world. The present departments of Statistical Science and Computer Science, as well as the Genetics and Biometry group in Biology and the physical side of Anthropology are all part of his legacy to UCL." A major proponent of eugenics, Pearson was also a protégé and biographer of Sir Francis Galton. REFERENCES: F.
