Giuseppe Angeloni et al., Gaetano Donizetti, p. 178. Laterza: Il Catalogo numerico Ricordi 1857, pp. 326, 335. OCLC no. 229882955. L'assedio di Calais, to a libretto by Cammarano after Pierre Du Belloy, was first performed at the Teatro San Carlo in Naples on November 19, 1836. "In the 19th century L'assedio di Calais had no more than a single run of performances at the S Carlo between 1836 and 1840. An enterprising recording by Opera Rara in 1989 opened the public's eyes to the work's many merits. Originally designed by Donizetti as a passport to the Paris Opéra, it contains an integral divertissement (in which however only two of the four dances are Donizetti's). This was then an unusual feature as almost all Italian operas of the period were performed as double bills along with full-length ballets. The first two acts of L'assedio contain some excellent ensembles, particularly the prayer at the close of Act 2 (?O sacro polve'), sung as the hostages leave the city hall." William Ashbrook in Grove Music Online. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Not having heard from him for two years, his wife married [Richard] Smith. Carson returned and, in trying to dispossess Smith of his wife and home, was shot by Smith. The judge practically directed Smith's conviction and he was hanged. Mrs. Carson, who was a rugged individual in her own right, tried to kidnap the governor to save Smith. After his execution she joined a gang of counterfeiters and subsequently died in prison" (McDade). This account went through 2 editions, both in 1838. The second edition is better because it contains additional material, as indicated by the title. Both editions are rare. OCLC locates no copies of the first edition, 4 of the second (American Antiquarian Society, New-York Historical Society, University of Michigan, Yale University) McDade, The Annals of Murder 888.

        Red Bird, A Winnebago

      Philadelphia: J. T. Bowen. Hand-coloured lithograph by J. T. Bowen. Sheet size: 10 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches. Fine condition. A rare image in very fine condition, issued only in this format Most of the McKenney and Hall images are available in both folio and octavo format. The present image was only published as the frontispiece to volume II of the octavo edition of McKenney and Hall's History of the Indian Tribes of North America. McKenney wrote: `All eyes were fixed on Red Bird ... of all the Indians I ever saw, he is, without exception, the most perfect in form, in face, and gesture. In height, he is about six feet; straight, but without restraint. His proportions are those of the most exact symmetry, and these embrace the entire man, from his head to his feet.' McKenney goes on to describe his costume and actions in great detail, all in terms of great admiration, but contrasting this with the fact that, according to the law, Red Bird was a murderer. He and two accomplices had murdered a man called Gagnier (a half-Indian half-French settler) and an ex-soldier staying with him. In fact he had acted in accordance with the Indian law, but had surrendered to the authorities to avoid retribution being visited on his people as a whole. Red Bird was taken with one of his accomplices (We-Kau, shown seated to Red Bird's right) to Prairie du Chien, handed over to the civil authority and put in prison, where he died `of crushed hopes, and a broken heart!' Red Bird died in 1838.

        (Catalog of the Anatomical Theatre's Collections at the Breslau University – from one of the Fathers of Modern Teratology). - Neues Verzeichniss der anatomischen Sammlung des Königl. Anatomie-Instituts zu Breslau.

      Breslau, Hirt, 1838.. Octavo. 5 ff., 224 pp. Professional recent marbled boards matching contemporary style. Title with a faint, old library stamp (stating just ‘library copy', but there is no indication there on which library is meant), pages minorily browned, but all together a very good to fine copy. First edition of this catalog of the anatomical collections at the University of Breslau (today Wroc?aw, Poland) counting for more than 12.000 specimen, among which several thousands of zoological and zootomical interest. “Sehr geschätztes Verzeichnis und Beschreibung der Präparaten-Sammlung des anatomischen Instituts zu Breslau” (ADB 24, 744). A first catalog of the museum with only 8.000 (and for a large part different) specimen was published from 1826 to 1833 and according to the author had become obsolet after a huge amount of preparats had been destroyed by intense use and transport and therefore had to be replaced by new and different ones. On top of that also the complete arrangement of the museum had changed significantly in the meantime making it neccessary to publish a new catalog (see preface, f. 3). The author, who graduated as a medician with degrees from the Universities of Greifswald and Frankfurt studied also under Georges Cuvier in Paris and held the position of a professor for anatomy in Breslau from 1813 on. While also being remembered as a zoologist describing quite a number of new species of mammals, birds and especially molluscs for the first time and not only by that contributing to natural history, he was the man behind the new anatomical theatre and museum in Breslau, which was established upon his initiative in the years of 1834/1835. Otto added a wealth of material to the local collections (all to be identified in the catalog by his intials!) and while the main focus of his interest all throughout his career lay on the subject of human and animal malformations, about a fourth of the entries in the catalog describe preparats of such conditions. His efforts for the Breslau anatomical museum and his writings on the subject made Otto one of the most prominent fathers of modern teratology.

        Biographical Sketches and Interesting Anecdotes of Persons of Color to which is added a Selection of Pieces of Poetry

      New York: Trustees of the residuary estate of Lindley Murray, 1838. 408p, third edition of this work that was first published in 1826, period leather-binding (polished calf) with old repairs and edge wear, spine worn with gilt bands but title label absent, period owner's name inked on free front fly leaf, darkened endpapers with foxing and slight foxing throughout. Mott's book was stunning for the period in its attempt to humanize people of color through short biographies, stories demonstrating the humanity of blacks, and evidence of their creativity through poetry. Her sketches range internationally in scope (Sierra Leone, the Caribbean, Liberia, the US), including the well-known (Toussaint L'Ouverture, Phyllis Wheatley), the obscure (Poor Sarah. Billy and Jenny), and Native Americans (Good Old Ruth the Pequot, Margaret Ann Crutchfield). This edition was published during a period of intense violence against abolitionists, particularly women. Mott agreed to have the book's design geared to classroom use. Abigail Field Mott (1766-1851) lived in Westchester County, NY before moving to Burlington, NJ. She was an observant Quaker and aunt by marriage to abolitionist and feminist Lucretia Coffin Mott. In this book, she sought "to encourage virtue and morality in the different classes of society; and by bringing into view the effects which a system of slavery has on the human mind, and the dreadful consequences of that arbitrary power invested in the slaveholder over his fellow-being, to show how it hardens the heart and petrifies the feelings.

        Experimental Researches in Electricity.

      Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, London 1838 - Part I. Richard and John Taylor, London, 1838. Eleventh Series, pp. 1-40, 79-81; Twelfth Series, pp. 83-123; Thirteenth Series, pp. 125-168. TP + [iii]-iv =Advertisements +[v]-[vi] =Distribution List + [xi] = Contents + [vii]-ix = Royal Medals + [xi]=Contents + [1]-168 + [169]-[172] = Meteorological Journal + Plate I + Plate II + Plate III, Quarto. First Edition. Michael Faraday "was both one of the greatest physicist of the nineteenth century and one of the greatest experimentalist of all time." Unusually, for people with great genius, he was a late developer and had a high level of creativity and productivity throughout his later life. His conceptual imagination became most powerfully creative after the age of forty-five -- the period when these papers where written. "Although his discovery of the electric motor and the dynamo was almost entirely incidental to his theoretical discoveries, it laid the foundation of the modern electrical industry." (PMM, 308)"Between 1832 and 1852 Faraday published twenty-nine series of papers in the Philosophical Transactions under the title "Experimental researches in electricity"; it was through these papers that his major discoveries relating to electricity and magnetism were first published . These papers, along with pertinent papers and letters published in other scientific journals, were collected in three volumes published in 1839, 1844 and 1855. The collection encompasses the entire range of Faraday's remarkable achievement, including his discovery of electromagnetic induction, his demonstration of the identity of all formes of electricity, his first general theory of electricity as a function of interparticulate strain, and the last series of researches on magnetism, containing the germ of modern field theory, in which Faraday rejected his earlier model of the transmission of magnetic energy in favor of one locating the manifestion of magnetic energy in the field surrounding the magnet." (Norman 762). " Eleventh Series: ".[Faraday] concluded that the behavior of a dielectric is exactly the same as that of an electrolyte, up to the point at which the electrolyte breaks down under the electric stress. The polarized condition acquired by a dielectric when placed in an electric field forcibly recalled to Faraday the condition of magnetic polarization, and that is precisely the reason why he introduced his lines of electric force, defined as curves whose tangents at every point have the same direction as the electric intensity. [in] 1838, Faraday applied Poisson's theory of induced magnetism to the case of induction in dielectrics, contending that the particles of an insulting dielectric, whilst under induction may be compared to . a series of small insulated conductors. In the field of a charged sphere these little conductors would all be polar; if the sphere were discharged they would all return to their normal state." (Taton, A General History of the Sciences, pp. 199-200)Faraday reflected on these observations, especially on the fact that contiguous particles were capable of transmitting step by step all those actions which appear to take place at a distance. Eventually, he reached the prescient view that the ultimate particles of matter might well be nothing other than the center of forces, forces being the constituent elements of matter. " Twelfth and Thirteenth Series: Faraday devoted these two series to electric discharges in the "vacuum" and these extended studies of the conductivity of gases sparked off a revolution in physics. He noticed that the negative pole became covered with a continuous glow and that it was separated from the positive pole by what has become known as "Faraday's Dark Space". Though Faraday had to leave it at that, because the air pumps then in use were incapable of evacuating vessels to the required extent, he predicted that the results connected with the different conditions of positive and negative discharge would have great influence on the "philosophy [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

An appealing copy of a rare title. * Second and best edition. "The Carsons had been married nine years when John Carson left home in 1810. Not having heard from him for two years, his wife married [Richard] Smith. Carson returned and, in trying to dispossess Smith of his wife and home, was shot by Smith. The judge practically directed Smith's conviction and he was hanged. Mrs. Carson, who was a rugged individual in her own right, tried to kidnap the governor to save Smith. After his execution she joined a gang of counterfeiters and subsequently died in prison" (McDade). This account went through 2 editions, both in 1838. The second edition is better because it contains additional material, as indicated by the title. Both editions are rare. OCLC locates no copies of the first edition, 4 of the second (American Antiquarian Society, New-York Historical Society, University of Michigan, Yale University) McDade, The Annals of Murder 888.

        Le Cuisinier Royal Seizieme Edition, augmentee de douze cents article nouveau [alternate title Le Cuisinier Imperial]

      Paris: Gustave Barba, Editeur du Cabinet Litteraire, 1838. Octavo, 616 pages. Illustrated with 7 engravings. The sixteenth of reportedly thirty-two editions, this was originally published under the title, Le Cuisiner Imperial and was changed to Royal with the reinstatement of the Bourbons. Viard, who called himself "Homme de Bouche," is said to have been chef de cuisine for both Louis XVI and Napolean. This remains unclear. What we do know is that this work was one of the great cookbooks of the era, and that it competed with Careme's L'Art de la Cuisine Française for space on French kitchen shelves throughout much of the 19th century. Le Cuisinier Royal was expanded in the 1920s by Mm. Fouret and Delan. This edition includes a detailed index, seven plates of table settings with menus for entertaining, and additional writings on wines by M. Grignon and M. Pierrhugues. This copy quite foxed throughout, and with some general soiling and wear to the text block. A few pages untrimmed. Still, complete and sound. In one-quarter brown calf with marbled paper covered boards. Less than very good. With three manuscript recipes in a contemporary hand, tipped into the rear with wax.
