        Chippeway Squaw & Child

      F.W. Greenough Philadelphia: F.W. Greenough, 1838. unbound. very good. Portrait. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Page measures 19.25" x 14". Beautiful portrait from the folio edition of McKenney and Hall's "History of the Indian Tribes of North America". As Superintendent of the Indian Trade Bureau, Thomas McKenney wanted to document the rapidly disappearing culture of the American natives. He activated the project, sponsored by the War Department, by commissioning writer James Hall and Charles Bird King, a renowned American portraitist. King painted the prominent Indians while they visited Washington D.C. as treaty delegates. Most of the original oil paintings were destroyed by fire in the Smithsonian Museum in 1865. These lithographs, published 1842-58, are all that remain and are still hailed as one of the best visual records of influential Native Americans of the nineteenth century. Children were considered blessings by all tribes, a sentiment evident in this portrait. The commonly used cradleboard is also illustrated. Overall toning with tape residue and chipping along edges. One of many Native American portraits in our collection.

        Kish-Ke-Kosh, a Fox Brave

      Philadelphia: F.W. Greenough, 1838. Hand-coloured lithograph by J.T. Bowen after George Cooke's 1837 portrait. In excellent condition apart from some light off-setting and soiling.12 7/8 x 10 inches. 19 x 13 inches. 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. A reputedly fierce warrior with an imposing presence, Kish-Ke-Kosh attended the delegation of Sioux and Fox and Sauk chiefs at the War Department in 1837, where the two tribes signed a tenuous peace treaty. Despite his normal appearance, his name roughly translated means 'The Man with One Leg' or 'He with a Cut Hoof'. The Fox tribe, which are actually the Mesquaki, inhabited the Great Lakes region of the United States and merged with the Sauk tribe in the eighteenth century. 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.

        An Elementary Course of Civil Engineering, for the Use of the Cadets of the United States' Military Academy

      Wiley and Putnam New York: Wiley and Putnam. 1838. Second edition, revised and corrected. Original publisher's figured brown cloth titled in gilt. 308pp., 14 folding plates. Contemporary owner's name ("Joseph Ray, Cincinnati"), some modest edgewear to the corners and spine ends, a near very good copy. A book of practical engineering and mathematics. Ray was a professor of mathematics and wrote several books on the subject, beginning in 1834: An Introduction to Ray's Eclectic Arithmetic, the first of a series of six textbooks which became the most popular and widely used American mathematics textbooks of the 19th Century. They also formed the basis for Ray's Mathematical Series series of textbooks, of which as late as 1913, annual sales exceeded a quarter of a million copies a year, and total sales of the arithmetic books alone are estimated at 120 million copies. The success of Ray's Arithmetic series prompted his publisher to seek an author for a corresponding set of readers. They chose William Holmes McGuffey, who joined Ray on the faculty of Woodward College, where he wrote the McGuffey Readers, which surpassed even Ray's Arithmetics to become the most popular textbooks ever written. .

      [title continues] Contributions to the Physiology of Vision.- Part the First [and: Part the Second, complete]. On some remarkable, and hitherto unobserved, Phenomena of Binocular Vision. 1838. [WITH:] The Bakerian Lecture. - Contributions to the Physiology of Vision. Part the Second (continued). First Edition, disbound extracts from Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, vol 128 for 1838, pp.371-394, and vol 142 for 1852, pp.1-17, large quarto, complete with 3 lithographic plates (these with small and neat embossed unlinked library name), an excellent copy, London, [Royal Society], 1838, 1852 * THE INENTION OF THE STEREOSCOPE. "Stereopsis was first described by Wheatstone in 1838.[6] In 1840 he was awarded the Royal Medal of the Royal Society for his explanation of binocular vision, a research which led him to make stereoscopic drawings and construct the stereoscope. He showed that our impression of solidity is gained by the combination in the mind of two separate pictures of an object taken by both of our eyes from different points of view. Thus, in the stereoscope, an arrangement of lenses or mirrors, two photographs of the same object taken from different points are so combined as to make the object stand out with a solid aspect. Sir David Brewster improved the stereoscope by dispensing with the mirrors, and bringing it into its existing form with lenses." - Wikipedia. * "As the inventor of the stereoscope, later developed by Brewster, Wheatstone found himself - to his own surprise - the first since Leonardo da Vinci to discuss depth perception in terms of the different image received by the eye."(DSB XIV, p. 290).

        A BIBLIOGRAPHICAL ANTIQUARIAN AND PICTURESQUE TOUR IN THE NORTHERN COUNTIES OF ENGLAND AND IN SCOTLAND

      London: Printed for the author by C. Richards, 1838. FIRST EDITION. 251 x 156 mm (9 7/8 x 6 1/8"). With the list of subscribers in volume I. Two volumes. HANDSOME EARLY 20TH CENTURY RED MOROCCO, GILT, BY MATTHEWS (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with gilt French fillet border enclosing a simple lobed panel, raised bands, spines very attractively gilt in compartments with spiral cornerpieces and centerpiece featuring either a fleur-de-lys, a manuscript scroll and quill, or Dibdin's cypher, gilt inner dentelles, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. With numerous engravings in the text, and 44 ENGRAVED PLATES, as called for, including portraits, views, antiquities, and manuscript facsimiles. Jackson 89; Windle & Pippin A-65; Lowndes I, 641. The tiniest bit of rubbing to joints and corners, minor foxing (mostly marginal) to all but a handful of plates, otherwise AN ESPECIALLY PLEASING SET IN FINE CONDITION, the text clean and bright, and the decorative bindings very lustrous and with almost no signs of use. This charming bibliographical travelogue takes us from Peterborough to London and on to Lincoln, York, Durham, Newcastle, Carlisle, Dumfries, Edinburgh, Glasgow, St. Andrews, and the border lands of Sir Walter Scott, with many stops along the way at libraries, cathedrals, castles, and ruins. Dibdin (1776-1847) was perhaps the most visible figure among the bibliophiles and bibliographers of the first half of the 19th century. His "Bibliomania" (1809) was an amusing account of the current craze of book collecting among wealthy English aristocrats, and the book, while cynical, did much to encourage the mania. And it was at his suggestion that the Roxburghe Club was founded in 1812. Our binding is typical of the elegant work produced by William Matthews, a Scot who became the leading binder in America during the second half of the 19th century. He was head of the bindery at D. Appleton and Complany, was an early member of the Grolier Club, and was an important advisor in the formation of the Club Bindery, a firm organized with the intention of executing fine American bindings that rivalled the best being produced in Europe.

        Illustrations of Her Majesty's Palace at Brighton; formerly the Pavilion: executed by the command of King George the fourth, under the superintendence of John Nash ... To which is prefixed a history of the palace, by ... Brayley

      London: J.B. Nichols & Son, also sold by R. Loder and James Taylor of Brighton, 1838. Folio. (21 1/2 x 14 1/2 inches). Wood-engraved title vignette. 31 plates and plans after A. Pugin and others (20 present in two states, giving a plate total of 51): some aquatint, some hand-coloured, some line etchings, some on india paper mounted, some mounted. Expertly bound to style in half black straight-grained morocco over contemporary marbled paper-covered boards, spine with raised bands in 8 compartments, decoratively tooled in gilt. A unique copy of this valuable record of one of the most extraordinary architectural achievements of the early-19th century. John Nash was largely responsible for adapting Henry Holland's Marine Pavilion at Brighton for the Prince of Wales. Nikolaus Pevsner (The Buildings of England, Harmondsworth, 1951-74) notes that Nash "kept the shape of Holland's building entirely and only threw his fancy dress over it, and he added as outer pavilions larger rooms than any so far." During the 1820s, acting on a further commission from his Royal client, Nash asked his pupil Augustus Pugin to produce a series of drawings and from these and other drawings a series of plates were produced. These were published in a suite containing both coloured aquatints and uncoloured line etchings under the title The Royal Pavilion at Brighton. The publication methods of this lavish production were somewhat haphazard, resulting in copies of the book not conforming with the list of plates. After Nash's death in 1835, the London publishers J. B. Nichols and Son acquired the plates and were commissioned to print Edward Wedlake Brayley's Careful Survey of the Palace, which they published in 1836. In 1838 they combined Brayley's text with the uncoloured outline etchings, and published Illustrations of Her Majesty's Palace at Brighton, dedication to Queen Victoria. This second issue of the plates is arguably a new work, in that for the first time the plates and text are combined. The work was issued complete with uncoloured outline etchings and text; however, the publishers offered separately-issued coloured aquatints, finished by hand and mounted on card, "to be bound with the Work at the option of the purchaser." Besides including some of these extra, and desirable, coloured plates, this copy includes variants of the uncoloured plates. Abbey describes some, but the present copy is unusual in the large number of different uncoloured and colour-printed variants. Abbey Scenery 62; Tooley 338; Lowndes II, 1651; cf. Fischer, New Berlin Kat., 1977, vol. I (Baukunst England) 2344.; cf. Brunet IV, 14.

John Martin made minor revisions to a few of his plates before printing started, so this could be described as a new edition of the book:

      New York: William H. Vermilye 1838, 2nd Edition. () xii,13-324pp. Very good. Small octavo (12 X 19.7 cm.) Original straight grained green with a natural history pattern of shells stamped in the cloth. Gilt lettering on the spine. Single lithographic plate used as the frontispiece. Book has moderate to heavy foxing through out but is far better than most American productions of the time. Rosove 120. Renard 523. Presentation copy with the following inscription in pencil:" Presented by the Author with his respects to Honorable Senator A. Robbins as a friendly token of regard." Robbins has signed and dated the front pastedown July 1, 1838. There appears to be a total of four editions of the book all in 1838, with the true first edition actually being called the second edition. All editions or printings are quite scarce and I am not sure if there is any change among them. Fanning's first book which appeared in 1833 was very successful (see Rosove 119) and he followed it up with this title with all new material. Very scarce especially with an inscription and dated ownership. The Discovery Book Auctions copy with a similar inscription but the fourth edition made $4000 in 2005..

        An Illustrated Atlas, Geographical Statistical, and Historical, of the United States, and the adjacent countries

      Boston & Cincinnati: stereotyped and printed by Fulsom, Wells & Thurston of Cambridge, Mass. for Weeks, Jordan & Co. of Boston and Edward Lucas & Co. of Cincinnati, [1838]. Folio. (19 1/2 x 15 3/4 inches). Engraved additional title with integral hand-coloured decorative pictorial surround, 39 hand-coloured engraved maps and town-plans (34 maps [one double-page], 5 town-plans), by G.W.Boynton and others. Contemporary light brown half morocco over embossed cloth-covered boards, brown morocco title label on the upper cover, lettered in gilt, the spine divided into five compartments by wide semi-raised bands, the bands highlighted with gilt tooling, marbled endpapers. A fine copy of "one of the first American general atlases to supplement the maps with lengthy geographical descriptions" (Ristow), with detailed maps of the 28 States, and including an excellent early map of the Republic of Texas. Martin and Martin, in their entry on Bradford's 1835 map of Texas, also note that "Bradford published a completely new atlas in 1838, in a larger format, and the map of Texas it contained was even more clearly patterned on [Stephen Fuller] Austin's [Map of Texas, published in Philadelphia in 1830]." It was one of the first maps of Texas as a Republic to appear in an atlas. The atlas is made up of a general map of North America, two maps of Canada, a folding map of the United States, 28 maps of States, a map of the Republic of Texas, a map of the islands of the Caribbean and five town-plans of eight U.S. cities (Washington, New Orleans, Louisville and Cincinnati on one sheet, and single sheet plans of Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Baltimore). Unlike many atlases of the period, the present work includes extensive text (170pp. in total). Each engraving is accompanied by explanatory articles on the history, economics and geography of the area, as well as a great deal of contemporary statistical information. The provenance is particularly interesting: Theodore Sutton Parvin was born in Cedarville, Cumberland County, N. J., on January 15, 1817; and died June 28, 1901. "He was graduated at Woodward College, Cincinnati, in 1836; he studied law; was private secretary of the first governor of Iowa Territory, Robert Lucas, in 1838, and was the first librarian of that territory. Later he was librarian and professor in the Iowa State University; was a founder of the Iowa State Historical Society in 1857, and for the years 1863-65 was its corresponding secretary and editor. He was the founder, in 1844, of the Iowa Masonic Library, and through his exertions this library has its present building at Cedar Rapids. From its foundation until his death, fifty-seven years, he was its librarian" (Collections of the Minnesota Historical Society, [1905]. vol.X, part II, p.871). Le Gear L33; cf.

        Map Puzzles for Children, ca. 1845

      A set of 6 maps, published by Logerot, drawn by the french map-maker Fremin, engraved by Ch. Dyonnet. They include "Amerique du Nord"; "Afrique"; "Amerique du Sud"; "Asie"; "Mappemonde", a double hemisphere; and "France et ses Chemins de Fer". The map of North America is most interesting, as Texas appears as an independent state, Mexico cuts a broad swath up through California, Santa Fe and the West, and the rest of America is simply "Etats-Unis". Texas appeared as an independent state for a short period of time, 1838-1842. The Australian map appears to be based on a variety of geographical information. West Australia appears pre-1829, as the Swan River Colony (Perth) is not marked, but features included are - At. de la Recherche, Albany, C. Leeuwin, H. Freycinet, C.N. Ouest. Nle. Galles du Sud stretches up the east coast, encompassing Queensland, with no specific inland detail for Queensland, but other features marked are G. de Carpentarie, C. Melville, C. Gloucester and the word "Melville" written in the ocean, implying Melville Island? The only inland features marked in New South Wales are Sydney, Botany Bay and C. Sandy on the coast. South Australia is not named, but two features are: G. Spencer and I. Kangaroi. "D. de Bass" and "Diemene" are marked, but there is no land mass for Tasmania. Maps printed area 26.5 x 19cms, on maps measuring 28 x 21 cms. & Possibly missing the map of Europe. Steel engraved maps, period hand color, mounted on 1/4" card, backed with blue paper, as issued. In the original papered box with "Atlas" on the top. Box bit bumped and dusty, o/w very good condition. Price originally 7 F.

        SKETCHES BY BOZ

      1838. hardcover. <center><b>SKETCHES BY BOZ in parts -- an American rarity</b></center> [Dickens, Charles.] SKETCHES BY BOZ, illustrative of Every-Day Life and Every-Day People. By the author of "The Pickwick Papers," "Oliver Twist," and "Nicholas Nickleby." With Twenty [here, sixteen] Illustrations by George Cruikshank. New Edition, Complete. [In ten monthly serial parts, of which eight are present.] Philadelphia: Lea & Blanchard, successors to Carey & Co., 1838-1839. Original pictorial blue-grey wrappers. 8 [of 10] parts. <p>First American Edition to be issued in monthly serial parts. In 1836 Carey Lea & Blanchard published the first series of SKETCHES BY BOZ in two volumes titled WATKINS TOTTLE AND OTHER SKETCHES, followed in 1837 by the second series as SKETCHES BY BOZ and later that year (with a couple of additions) as THE TUGGS&#39;S AT RAMSGATE AND OTHER SKETCHES. In 1838-39, with Dickens&#39;s increased popularity due to OLIVER TWIST and NICHOLAS NICKLEBY, Lea & W Blanchard (<i>sans</i> Carey) published both series in ten parts, each with two plates by Cruikshank (redrawn "beautifully" according to Wilkins) -- with preliminary leaves at the end of the final part for binding up as one volume. Included is an "Advertisement" indicating that the sketches "The Public Life of Mr. Tulrumble" and "The Pantomime of Life" are now included.</p> <p>This set consists of eight of the ten parts -- lacking Parts 4 and 9. There are two plates in each part; there is a 12-page ad catalogue only in Part I. Curiously, the part number on the front wrapper appears in the upper <i>left</i> corner of parts 1, 2, 3 and 6, but in the upper <i>right</i> corner of parts 5, 7, 8 and 10 (this latter one has a "1" printed with a "0" inked in next to it -- yet it is not an amended Part I, as that part has the number in the other corner). The text is in two columns, and always runs exactly 24 pages (one part cuts off in the middle of a sentence, to be completed in the next part).</p> <p>Condition is very good: there is some edge-wear of the wrappers, especially the last one, and the second plate in each part has some darkening due to facing the first page of text. <u>The rarity of these parts cannot be over-emphasized</u>: they were absent from the great Dickens collections of the 20th Century (like the Suzannet and the Kern), they are absent from the National Union Catalogue (Library of Congress), and they have not appeared at auction in at least 25 years -- during which time we can trace only three parts being offered for sale (in 1990). Podeschi (Yale) A12 (the Yale set consists only of Parts 3 and 9, lacking the other eight); not in Carr (UTexas); Wilkins pp 11-12.

        Thèse présentée à la faculté des sciences de Paris... Sur les vitesses rélatives de la lumière dans l'air et dans l'eau.Paris: Bachelier, 1853. First edition.

      An exceptionally fine copy of Foucault's rare doctoral thesis on the speed of light, in which he provides a convincing proof for the wave theory of light. Norman 820. <br/><br/> In the 1840s Foucault undertook a series of optical experiments using an apparatus of rotating mirrors to determine the velocity of light. Originally developed by Charles Wheatstone to measure the velocity of electricity, the rotating mirror apparatus had been proposed as an instrument for the measurement of light in 1838 by Dominique-Francois Arago who failed in his own attempts to carry out the experiment. Foucault's initial work was carried out in conjunction with the physicist Armand Hippolyte Louis Fizeau (1819-1896); but a personal dispute broke up their partnership in 1847 and the two collaborators became rivals, working separately on the same problem using the same technique. Both reached the same conclusion, but while Fizeau was the first to obtain, in 1849, a precision measurement of the velocity of light, Foucault pre-empted him in announcing, on 30 April 1850, that light travels faster in air than in water, a decisive argument in favour of the wave theory of light, which by the mid-nineteenth century had become generally accepted. In his thesis Foucault gives a detailed account of his experiment, illustrating his apparatus; it was not until 1862 that he was able to determine a numerical value for the speed of light, of about 298,000 kilometers per second, a figure significantly smaller, and more accurate, than Fizeau's.<br/><br/> Foucault (1819-68) is today best known for the pendulum experiments demonstrating the rotation of the earth which he performed in 1851. Perhaps he considered these experiments to be unsuitable as a thesis topic as the result (the rotation of the earth) was well known to everyone, whereas the results of his air-and-water experiments, though expected by most scientists, were new. <br/><br/> En français dans le texte 270; Norman 820.. 4to (282 x 230 mm), pp. [iv], 35, [1], with one large folding engraved plate. Original printed wrappers, unopened. Marginal corrections to text on pages 3 and 5 (in the author's hand?). Very rare in such fine condition

        A Geological Map of England & Wales, and Part of Scotland, Showing also the Inland Navigation by Means of Rivers and Canals, with their Elevation in Feet Above the Sea Together with the Rail Roads & Principal Roads.

      Map dimensions 137 x 99 cm, overall dimensions 145 x 101 cm. Large folding geological map with a cross-section of southern England from Land's End to the German Ocean across the lower margin and a further cross-section of the region between St. George's Channel and the North Sea, all vividly coloured according to the strata. Scale: 10 miles to 1 1/8th inch. The map divided into 36 sections and mounted on linen, textured paper to the folded end sections, folds into the original slipcase with the publisher's gilt lettered title label to the upper board. Save for some light wear to the case, an excellent example. The map was first published in 1835 and was frequently updated and reissued using fresh evidence gathered from geological fieldwork. This is the fourth state dated as above, with Knipe's name excised from the title and with the Walkers' address given as No. 9 Castle Street, Holborn.

        Af en endnu Levendes Papirer. Udgivet mod hans Villie.

      Kjøbenhavn [Copenhagen], 1838. Ubeskåret i nydeligt senere hldrbd. af vinrød oaseged m. rygforgyldn. og skindtitelfelt på forperm. (Oscar Jacobsen). Lettere brunplettet. X + 79pp. Uncut in a very nice later halfleatherbdg. of dark red morocco w. green marbled paper and dark red gilt leather-title-label on front board. Gilt lines to back. (Oscar Jacobsen). Some brownspotting. X + 79pp.. Originaludgaven af Kierkegaards debut, -værket i hvilket han skarpt kritiserer H.C. Andersen, og i hvilket inspirationen fra Poul Martin Møller (til hvem han dedikerede værket "Begrebet Angest" - den eneste uden for familien, der er blevet beæret med en trykt dedikation af Kierkegaard) formenlig er tydeligst at spore. Den specielle titel kan med en vis rimelighed siges at hentyde til en villet videreførelse af den beundrede og på tidspunktet for udgivelsen netop afdøde Poul Martin Møllers nærmest upublicerede produktion. Den "endnu Levende" skulle således være "Danmarks Gæde i Glæden over Danmark", "Mindet i den danske Sommer", Poul Martin Møller, den mand, der ved sin person har inspireret Kierkegaard mere end nogen anden. Himmelstrup 6.First edition of Kierkegaard's first work; -the work in which he sharply critisizes Hans Christian Andersen and ridicules the genre of fairy tales in general

        Memoirs of Joseph Grimaldi. Edited by ''BOZ.'' With Illustrations by George Cruikshank. In Two Volumes.

      London; Richard Bentley, 1838. First edition, first printing. 8:o. [xix] + (1), 288 + 7 plates & [ix] + 263, (1) pp. + 6 plates. With 36 pp. advertisements at end of vol. II. Original pink embossed cloth with gilt title on spine. Yellow endpapers. The cloth darkened, soiled and worn at extremities. Minor tears along the rear joints. Bindings are perfectly tight. A small hole in pp. 183/184 of the first volume, affecting a punctuation, and one in top margin of pp. 273/274. Contemporary owner's signature on front paste-down of the second volume. Contents strikingly clean, with occasional light stains and a few minimal tears in margins. First printing without the border on the last plate. ''In the second issue a very crude attempt was made to 'improve' Cruikshank's drawing by surrounding it with a grotesque border.'' (Eckel p. 141). Contains twelve plates with imprints by Cruikshank; the frontispiece was engraved after a painting by Samuel Raven. Dickens edited this biography of the famous clown Joseph Grimaldi (1778-1837), and he probably wrote the introduction and the concluding chapter himself. Eckel pp. 140-142

        Influenza degli imperatori di casa d'austria nelle vicende d'italia dall elezione di roodolfo d'asburgo fino ai nostri giorni. commentario storico con tavole e descrizione del duomo di milano addobbato per l'incoronazione lombardo-veneta di s.m.i.r.a. rodolfo primo. milano, a spese dell'editore a. arzione, 1838.

      In 4, [mm. 310 x 223], pp. (8) - 135 - (3), con i ritratti di Ferdinando primo e Maria Carolina disegnati da Demaurizio ed incisi da Gandini, in fine due tavole che mostrano il ricco adobbo all'interno del Duomo di Milano ed il grande trono con baldacchino, incise da A Lenzani. Il frontespizio è decorato da una vignetta che mostra la corona di ferro. Le pagine sono incorniciate da una ricca cornice a riquadri esagonali - decorati da trofei d'armi e vegetali - e quadrati con gli stemmi della casata e gli ordini onorifici. Ai quattro angoli i qadrati hanno la corona imperiale. Legatura in mezza pelle marmorizzata con titolo in verticale al dorso assai più grande del volume [mm. 374 x 250] di cui all'interno è conservata la copertina anteriore in brochure originale. Risguardi marmorizzati su cui sono incollate le carte bianche del volume. Abrasioni ai piatti ed alle cerniere.Esemplare in buono stato con foxing dovuto al tipo di carta. Da segnalare uno strappo alle pp. 17-18 che interessa anche le prime righe del testo senza tuttavia ledere la lettura ed un altro all'angolo di pp. 115-116. Rovinati dall'uso, di certo anche dalle meditazioni del proprietario, gli angoli in basso. Gocce di inchiostro alle pagine. Al risguardo anteriore nota: Vieusseux Bibl[ioteca] Conse[ervati]va.Al risguardo posteriore etichetta: Francesco Carocci legatore di libri del Gabinetto Scientifico e Letterario del Sig. G. P. Vieusseux- Esso riceve altresì lavoro da chiunque voglia favorirlo, promettendo di sodisfar con precisione, prontezza, e discretezza nei prezzi. Abita in via Malborghetto sul Canto del Campuccio presso il Giardino Torrigiani N. 2908. Firenze. Opera smaccatamente celebrativa ed encomiastica, a partire dalla dedica che l'editore Antonio Arzione fa Agli Eccelsi Principi che di loro presenza fanno più solenne e memorando il VI Setembre MDCCCXXXVIII in cui l'Imperatore Ferdinando I Imperatore sovrano incomparabile per rettitudine clemenza religione fregia della Sacra Corona Longobarda l'Augusto suo Crine.L'opera comincia con un saggio sull'influenza degli Imperatori d'Austria sull'Italia, a partire da Rodolfo d'Asburgo incoronato nel 1273 fino a Ferdinando ed al padre di questi, Francesco I ,che regnò fino al 1835. In fine appendice con il Quadro degli acquisti e delle perdite fatte dalla casa d'Austria in Italia. Alla descrizione del Duomo il giorno dell'inaugurazione seguono tre poesie dello stesso Cantù sulla giornata e poi notizie storiche sulla corona di ferro conservata a Monza con l'elenco dei sovrani ed Imperatori d'Occidente e le date delle incoronazioni. Ignazio Cantù nacque a HYPERLINK "/wiki/Brivio"Brivio il HYPERLINK "/wiki/5_dicembre"5 dicembre HYPERLINK "/wiki/1810"1810, fratello minore del più celebre Cesare, fu scrittore prolifico, dopo gli studi a Sondrio e Come dove poi divenne anche insegnante, iniziò a pubblicare dapprima su riviste e periodici passando quindi ad opere più impegnative come Le vicende della Brianza e de' paesi circonvicini del 1835-36 e scrivendo poi opere di carattere geografico alternate a ricerche storiche come il romanzo Il marchese Annibale Porrone del 1842 e la Storia ragionata e documentata della rivoluzione lombarda, 1848). Che faceva seguito a Gli ultimi cinque giorni degli austriaci in Milano, pubblicato appena di carattere educativo. Morì a Monza il 20 aprile 1877. Esemplare appartenuto ad un patriota a giudicare dalle ricchissime postille che accompagnano varie pagine del testo a cominciare dal nome dell'autore aggiunto sia alla copertina che al frontespizio. Il proprietario del volume con calligrafia ottocentesca rimprovera più volte, nel corso dell'opera l'autore per la sua eccessiva piaggeria nei confronti di Ferdinando Primo e degli Austriaci, a cominciare dalla copertina dove aggiunge di seguito a Commentario storico il nome dell'autore e poi con un rimando: Avvertesi che il professore cavaliere sullodato è proprio fratello, di carne di sangue e di ossa del prof. Cav. Cesare Cantù stori
