        Anweisung zum Gebrauche der allgemeinen Rechentafel, wodurch die vier Rechnungsarten auf vierfache Weise fest und sicher erlernet werden

      32 pp. Small 8vo, orig. printed wrappers, uncut. Vienna: Mayer, 1838. [issued with]: A calculator consisting of 34 tables printed on thick paper strips & kept in a "calculating" box of blue paste-paper measuring 119 x 184 mm., with five cut-out panels for the calculations, preserved in the orig. marbled paper slipcase. First edition and very rare; not listed by WorldCat. This is an early school calculator and a modernization of Napier's "bones" and multiplication tables. The calculator offers instruction in addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. The 34 printed tables, in the form of strips of thick paper, move up and down, according to the values being calculated and the operation. "Napier's bones" is a manually-operated calculating device created by John Napier of Merchiston for calculation of products and quotients of numbers. Napier first published his invention in 1617 in his Rabdologia. Using the multiplication tables embedded in the rods, multiplication could be reduced to addition operations and division to subtractions. Napier's bones (or rods) were made of ivory, wood, metal, or heavy cardboard. During the 18th and 19th centuries, Napier's bones underwent a transformation to make them easier to read. A number of mathematicians developed variations of Napier's original invention. Bleich (1798-1871), was for many years a teacher in Vienna. In the 1820s, Bleich's first educational publications were published. For example, the book Tagesordnung eines Kindes (The Day of a Child) appeared in several editions and tens of thousands of copies were sold. From 1831 until his death he lectured and taught at the Zollersche main school of Vienna, where he twice served as interim director and which he portrayed in the historical essay "Die Michael von Zoller and Franz Aloys Bernard'sche Hauptschule" published in 1851. His most noted publication was the educational booklet "Nur Ruhe!" (Silence), published in 1846 in which he gives 300 suggestions and hints to help keep children calm in the classroom without resorting to corporal punishment. In fine condition and a wonderful survival, the book and calculator preserved in its original slipcase. It is actually quite fun to make calculations using the strips. ❧ Louise Bleich, Biografie des Lehrers und Schriftstellers Peter Bleich (Wien: 1871). Not in the Tomash catalogue.

        Oliver Twist or, the Parish Boy's Progress

      Published by Richard Bentley, London; 1838. 3 vols. Illustrated by George Cruikshank. First Edition, First Issue oif this beloved classic by Charles Dickens. These volumes have all early first issue points present, with 'Boz' to the title pages instead of Charles Dickens, the rare "fireside" plate on p. 313 of volume 3, which was changed very early on to a graveside plate as Charles Dickens disliked the original. There are 24 plates in total, as called for, with the additional plate of "Rose Maylie and Oliver" in church, which was substituted for the "fireside" plate in later issues. There are half titles to volumes 1 and 2, 4 pages of adverts to the end of volume 1 and 2 pages of adverts at the front of volume 3, without the list of illustrations. These lovely first editions come in the original publisher's cloth binding, the original variant horizontal brown cloth with large blind stamped arabesque on the boards and gilt lettering to the spines, without imprint at the foot. In all these volumes are in Very Good condition, with some wear to the board edges and corners, and to the spines. That said, it is remarkable that they have survived in such lovely condition without signs of restoration and in original bindings, which remains intact and strong. Inside, there is a tear to the title page of volume 1, up the inside edge from the bottom (please see photo), and spotting and toning to many pages. However, the pages are amazingly clean and bright for a book of this age. There is a booksellers sticker to the inside of the front board of volume 1, and another it would seem inside volume2, with a desciption of the books (see photos).In all, these volumes of one of the most cherished literary tales are in excellent condition and are a rare find indeed - one of the earliest copies to be published and still in it's original binding! Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions regarding these remarkable books or would like further information on them.

        A Lecture on South Australia; including Letters from J.B. Hack, Esq. and other Emigrants. Delivered before the Members of the Chichester Mechanics' Institution, Nov. 27, 1837 ... Second Edition, with an Appendix, containing the Regulations of the Commissioners, Dietary for Free Emigrants, &c

      London, Sold by J. Gliddon, 3, Austin Friars, and W.H. Mason, Chichester, 1838 (second edition)/ [1838?]. Octavo, [ii], 30 pages. Later plain wrappers a little chipped and creased; first and last pages tanned and a little marked; corners a little worn and creased; mild signs of age and use (and one bifolium is neatly detached); a decent copy of a rare item. A dozen pages are given over to the letters from emigrants, including nine from the brothers Hack, written between February and August 1837. The first one, from Glenelg on 20 February, less than two months after the arrival of the first settlers, sets the tone: 'The natives are only too friendly: a family called this morning; they seem very good natured. I breakfasted this morning on damper [a definition is supplied in a footnote] and parrot, regular bush-fare; the parrot was capital eating. I hope we shall be fortunate enough to shoot some daily'. Ferguson 2668 (noting printed wrappers; he also records that the 'first edition has not been seen', and suggests that its first appearance might have been in an English magazine in January 1838).

      (Kopenhagen, Tengnagel), 1838-40. Stor8vo. Samtidigt mønsterpræget helshirtbd. Rig rygforgyldning. Mindre rift ved øverste kapitæl. Med alle tekstsider (18) pp. samt alle 64 meget smukke håndkolorerede plancher henhørende til disse 8 hefter. Teksten (på tysk) ren og frisk, trykt på svært papir. Plancherne rene, koloreringen udsøgt med enkelte svage brunpletter i marginer. En planche løs i heftningen. ¶ Walters meget sjældne værk om de udenlandske fugle udkom i 2 serier (1828-41) hvor første serie udkom i 8 hefter og anden serie i 10 hefter. Her foreligger de 8 første hefter (af 10). Der udkom ikke noget fællestitelblad til værket, men den overordnede titel er taget fra værkets første hefte. Walter var født i Ratzeburg 1799, var maler og kobberstikker, kom til København i 1817 og var en årrække opsynsmand ved den Kgl. Malerisamling. - "Medens Walters akademiske løbebane nærmest må kaldes mislykket, placerede han sig særdeles smukt som naturhistorisk tegner of stikker."(Weilbach)."The text contains a brief account of the birds figured on the plates (engravings coloured by hand, rather finely executed), copied from the "vorzüglichsten französischen Kupferwerken", such as Audebert and Vieillot's 'Oiseaux dorés', 1800-02. Temminck and Laugier's 'Nouveau recueil de planches coloriées d'oiseaux', 1820-39, Levaillant's 'Histoire naturelle des oiseaux de paradis', 1801-06, and others." (Jean Anker, 519).Gosch, Afd. III, p. 328. - Not in BMC(NH) - Not in Zimmer. - Nissen, 971.

        Atlante di geografia universale preceduto da un vocabolario de' nomi tecnici della geografia, corredato di specchi statistici delle divisioni politiche della terra, ed arricchito d'illustrazioni e di una bilancia politica del globo...

      Batelli e Figli, 1838. In-folio (cm. 43), pp. (8), 19, (98) nn. di testo. Complessive 65 (di 67!) tavole f.t., molte delle quali ripiegate, sia in nero che in bella coloritura acquerellata coeva, con raffigurazioni cosmografiche, orografiche, geologiche, vulcanologiche, cartografie di geografia antica come di geografia moderna relative a tutti i continenti e soprattutto all'Europa; le singole cartografie delle nazioni europee, tutte colorate, presentano accanto alla rappresentazione territoriale lo stato degli stati in questione. Qualche traccia d'uso spasa (corpo del volume diviso centralmente), ed alcuni strappi (senza perdita) alle carte, ma complessivamente buona conservazione, stampato su carta forte. Mancano però le tavole 7 e 17. Bell'atlante ottocentesco pubblicato "per servire al Corso di Geografia Universale di F. C. Marmocchi". Il Marmocchi (Poggibonsi, 1805-Ginevra, 1858) fu noto geografo e cartografo. In rapporti con Mazzini, fu coinvolto nei moti politici del 1831 e subì dure persecuzioni che si spinsero sino alla prigionia da parte del governo granducale. Eletto nel 1848 deputato al Parlamento toscano, fu nominato con decreto granducale Segretario del Ministero dell'Interno allora retto dal Guerrazzi. Emigrato poi a Roma, e ancora dopo in Corsica, che perlustro' a lungo con il Gregorovius, si fissò successivamente a Torino e, infine, a Genova, dove rimase per il resto della vita attendendo soprattutto a compilazioni geografiche.
