        Arabische Barbier-Stube" originale Farb-Lithographie über Tonplatte ca.30x24cm (Darstellung/image size) auf festem Bütten-Papier (48x36cm) unterhalb der Darstellung typographisch betitelt und bezeichnet;

      - aus: "Malerische Ansichten aus dem Orient"; Weigel München 1839 [Das dekorative und seltene Blatt an den Rändern minimal fingerfleckig.] In Folge des Napoleonischen Feldzuges nach Ägypten 1798 - 1801 begann die wissenschaftliche, wirtschaftliche, politische und kulturelle Aneignung des Orients durch den Okzident. Einer der frühesten war Heinrich von Mayr, der zunächst eine Ausbildung zum Genre-, Schlachten- und Pferdemaler bei seinem Stief vater Christian Friedrich Fues und bei Albert Reindel erhalten hatte, bevor er 1838 Kabinettmaler des reiselustigen Herzogs Maximilian von Bayern wurde, Vater der späteren österreichischen Kaiserin Elisabeth, gen. Sissi. Der Künstler begleitete ihn im gleichen Jahr auf eine achtmonatige Reise nach Nubien, Ägypten, Palästina, Syrien und Malta, aus der zwei Veröffentlichungen erwuchsen: „Malerische Ansichten aus dem Orient", 1839, und „Genrebilder aus dem Orient", 1846 – 50. Ihre lithographischen Illustrationen nach Zeichnungen Heinrich von Mayrs hatten dokumentarische Funktion, sollten aber auch dem Vergnügen und der Bildung dienen: Orientalische Landschaften und Sehenswürdigkeiten, Volks- und Straßenszenen, besondere Architekturen wie Tempel, Pyramiden oder Ruinen.

      [Guatemala]: Imprenta de la N. A. de Estudios Folio (30.7 cm;12.125"). [1] f.. 1839 Beginning in 1838 The Federal Republic of Central America was torn apart by civil wars pitting Liberals against Conservatives and the desires of the various states against the central government, with constitutional issues at the heart of the controversy. The Liberals installed Gen. Carlos Salazar in January, 1839, as provisional president of Guatemala replacing Conservative Mariano Rivera Paz. This was during a brief period of peace between the two factions. Here in a decree dated 20 March 1839 Salazar offers to act as mediator for any effort at a lasting peace.

        An Inquiry into the Origin of the Antiquities of America With: Original Prospectus - an 8 page pamphlet

      New York: Published for Subscribers by Colt, Burgess & Co. 1839 - New York: Published for Subscribers by Colt, Burgess & Co., 1839. First Edition. Large 4to - 29.9cm. pp. 142 including Appendix, 10 exceptional lithographic plates, five of which are hand-colored, depicting artifacts, skulls, traditional artwork, plans, and more. The fold-out "plate" precedes the title page and is in fact a replica of the codex Boturini, apparently produced to scale and measuring 7.5" x 19' (feet). The paper used for this exceedingly large fold-out is more like a thin vellum, quite thin, but strong Ñ this copy is completely intact. There is intermittent foxing but not affecting plates which are fresh. Binding is the original boards, blind-stamped and with bright gilt center design; recent leather spine with title labels, raised bands; all page edges gilt, newer end-leaves. Overall this is a very good and complete copy of a rare publication. Howes D229. Sabin 19333. Field 509. John Delafield was a prominent New York banker. His book, which was quite well-printed for an American book of this period, is a study of the origins of the Native Americans, including those of South America, an interesting piqued, as he says, from living among the tumuli of those people, i.e. he mound builders. His conclusions are that they migrated across the Bering Straits, for which he tries to supply linguistic, somatic, mythic and other proofs. His work was a notable achievement for that time in history. There is also an appendix by James Lakey, entitled "A Brief Inquiry in the Causes of the Superiority of Man in the Northern Hemisphere, over those of the Southern Hemisphere". Provenance: This copy belonged to John Bussey, a prominent Boston Merchant, farmer and horticulturist, who left his land to Havard University for agricultural and horticultural advancement. The current Arnold Arboretum is on Bussey's donated land. His small circular stamp on the title page bear his name. With: Also laid into this copy is the original prospectus for the book Ñ a pamphlet of 8pp. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        [MANUSCRIPT AGREEMENT FOR THE NEW OWNERSHIP OF THE JOLIET- COURIER NEWSPAPER]

      [Joliet, Il.], 1839. Folio. Old folds. Separation at many folds, most repaired with tape. Light soiling and foxing. Some small paper loss due to wax seals. Still, quite legible. About good. In a green half morocco and cloth clamshell case, spine gilt. A manuscript purchase agreement for the JULIET COURIER, the Chicago area's oldest newspaper, and the sixth oldest paper in Illinois. The JULIET COURIER was founded April 20, 1839 by thirteen investors in Juliet, Illinois (changed to Joliet in 1845). They hired an editor named Balch (variously referred to as P.O. Balch, O.H. Balch, and C.H. Balch), who abandoned the project a few months later, resulting in the present document. The paper was then edited by David L. Gregg, a local attorney who rose to prominence and later served as Illinois Secretary of State; in 1853, Gregg was appointed United States Commissioner to the Sandwich Islands, where he served for the next ten years. The paper was published as the JULIET COURIER until 1843, when the name was changed to the JULIET SIGNAL (later the JOLIET SIGNAL, with the change in the town's name). The paper is published to this day under the banner of the JOLIET HERALD NEWS. The document opens: "Whereas the JULIET COURIER, lately under the management of P.O. Balch, has been abandoned by the said Balch, without any provision for its further publication. And whereas the said COURIER is likely to be discontinued unless funds be provided immediately for purchasing stock, paying journeymen, &c. And also whereas it is both necessary and expedient for the democracy to keep in existence a press of sound Democratic principles, devoted to the best interests of the people - Therefore, we the undersigned do promise & agree to pay for the purposes above specified, to the committee of stockholders owning the printing establishment of the aforesaid COURIER the amount set opposite to our respective names, with the express understanding & consideration that the same shall be refunded from the rents & profits due to the aforesaid establishment." It is signed by fifteen individuals or establishments, with notes that each has paid the amount stated (generally five dollars). The remainder of the document discusses the continuation of the paper's operation, signing the responsibility over to David L. Gregg and W.P. Hudson. It is signed at the end by the twenty shareholders, noting how many shares each owns in the company. An interesting and early piece of Illinois newspaper history.

        Monuments et rues de Paris.

      Paris G. Englemann for Rittner et Goupil and Susse Freres 1839 - Large folio (40 x 55 cm). Title, 20 lithographed plates with protection leaf (one protection leaf missing); slight marginal soiling, light occasional spotting. Publisher's half sheep over cloth, upper cover and flat spine lettered in gilt; rubbed, spine ends restored. Very rare pictorial record of romantic Paris, before the French capital was deeply restructered during Napoleon III's Second Empire. Apparently no copy in the CCFR and at the BnF, none in the UK and only one in the USA, in the P. Morgan library in NY. We could not trace any copy selling at auction in recent decades either. This is one of the first publications of the young William Wyld (1806-89), an English painter and lithographer who had set his studio in Paris in 1834. Wyld won a gold medal at the Paris Salon for his 2m wide canvas "Venice at Sunrise" the year he published these Monuments et rues de Paris. Friends with the French painters Ary Scheffer and Paul Delaroche, he first painted orientalist scenes, before turning to more classical architectural representations. This series is a compilation of twenty fine views of Paris, varying from monuments and avenues to views over the Seine river and even a panorama of the city from the celebrate Pere Lachaise cemetery. Some of them, such as the representations of the Palais des Tuileries, the Marché des Innocents or the Pont des Sts Pères, testify to the beauty of these monuments that no longer exist.

On his return to Britain he began a series of paintings depicting Italian life and it is likely that this striking image was created during this period.

        On a new Voltaic Combination" AND "On Voltaic Series and the Combination of Gases by Platinum" in The London, Edinburgh, and Dublin Philosophical Magazine and Journal of Science Volume 13, 1838, pp. 430-431 AND Volume 14, 1839, pp. 127-130

      FIRST EDITIONS OF GROVE'S DESCRIPTION AND DEMONSTRATION OF THE INVENTION OF THE FIRST FUEL CELL - an improved form of voltaic cell which Faraday used in his demonstrations before the Royal Society. Simply put, fuel cell technology generates electricity within the chemical reaction created via the combination of hydrogen and oxygen. Together the two papers trace the evolution of Grove's fuel cell. Two volumes. William Grove was a Welsh barrister turned scientist. "While investigating the electrolysis of water, Grove observed that when the current was switched off, a small current flowed through the circuit in the opposite direction, as a result of a reaction between the electrolysis products, hydrogen and oxygen, catalyzed by the platinum electrodes. Grove recognized the possibility of combining several of these in series to form a gaseous voltaic battery, also [making] the crucially important observation that there must be a 'notable surface of action' between the gas, the electrolyte, and the electrode phases in a cell" (Stolten, Hydrogen and Fuel Cells, 63). "After relating [in the first paper] a number of experiments using different metals and electrolytes as well as different containers, Grove describe[s] [in the second paper] what was to become the standard form of his battery, consisting of zinc in dilute sulfuric acid and platinum in concentrated nitric acid (or a mixture of nitric and sulfuric acids), giving an emf of nearly two volts" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography, V, 559). ALSO INCLUDED: Michael Faraday's "Experimental Researches in Electricity, Eleventh Series," 1839, Volume 13, pp. 281-299; pp. 355-367; pp. 412-430. "Dr. Faraday's Supplementary Note to Experimental Researches in Electricity, Eleventh Series," 1839, Volume 14, pp. 34-37. First printed in the Philosophical Transactions in the same year, the eleventh series presents Faraday's researches on electro-statical induction. This series was "undertaken with a view to test an idea which he had long possessed, that the forces of attraction and repulsion exercised by free electricity are not the resultant of actions exercised at a distance, but are propagated by means of molecular action among the contiguous particles of the insulating medium surrounding the electrified bodies, which he therefore calls the dielectric. By this idea he [was] led to some very remarkable views upon induction, or in fact upon electrical action in general" (Thomson, Phil Mag, July 1854, p. 50). NOTE: In a separate listing we are also offering a separate collection of seven important first editions related to the invention and development of the fuel cell. CONDITION & DETAILS: 2 Volumes. London: Richard and John E. Taylor. (8.5 x 5.5 inches; 213 x 138mm). [viii], 486, [258 page index], 4. Ex-libris bearing only a small paper label at the spine and a discreet stamp on the title page. Bound in three quarter polished black calf over marbled paper boards. GIlt-ruled and lettered at the spine. Minor rubbing and scuffing; tightly and solidly bound. Slight age toning and foxing. Both volumes are in very good condition.

        [View on the Delaware, near Bordentown

      Paris, Coblenz, and London, 1839. Aquatint engraving by Ch. Vogel after Bodmer, proof on idia paper mounted, issue without imprint line and without title in English, some spotting to mount. A rare India proof of this delightful, lively scene on the banks of the Delaware in high summer. A steamer awaits the arrival of passengers who are disembarking from their coaches. One coach pulls up full of late arrivals. Some passengers who boarded at an earlier stop take advantage of the delay to stretch their legs: all this and the tranquil landscape are brilliantly captured by Bodmer in this image executed on 24th July 1832 close by the 300 acre estate of Joseph Bonaparte, the exiled elder brother of the French Emperor. Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. They arrived in Boston in July 1832, traveled on to Philadelphia, where they stayed with Napoleon Bonaparte's elder brother Joseph. From here they headed west across Pennsylvania across the Alleghenies to Pittsburgh and the Ohio country, visiting all the important German settlements en route. Their most important stop on their route west was at the utopian colony of New Harmony in Indiana. The Prince spent five months there in the company of some of the country's leading scientific men, and studying all the relevant literature on backcountry America. On 24 March 1833 the party reached St. Louis, Missouri, and the start of the journey into Indian country. Graff 4648; Howes M443a; Pilling 2521; Sabin 47014; Wagner-Camp 76:1.

      Carey & Hart, Philadelphia, PA 1839 - Hardback is overall in VERY GOOD- condition. Catalog insert is overall in VERY GOOD+ condition. This gem combines two unique collectibles: the first edition of Lever's first published book, and a very scarce catalog of books by Carey & Hart. Carey and Hart Publishing (1829-1854) is often considered the preeminent American publishing firm of the 19th century. In addition to the "choice, rare and valuable books," this catalog includes listings for "Splendidly Illustrated works," titles unique to Carey & Hart, the entire works of Sir Walter Scott, and medical books, as well as a number of foreign language books. 32 pages. 5.5 x 8.5 inches. Dated April 1839. The book itself is the first illustrated edition of the first book published by Charles James Lever (1806-1872)--an Irish novelist of English descent. It strings together rollicking tales of fun and adventure. Although harshly reviewed by critics, the general public embraced Lever's entertaining stories. 402 pages. 7 x 10 inches. ** INSERT is bound securely into the end of the book. Booklet is neat with clean edges. Pages are free of writing and stray marks. Paper is lightly tanned, with darkened edges. Front and back papers are moderately foxed. Interior exhibits minor marks and signs of age. Excepting the stated signs of aging, this pamphlet is in exceptional condition, having been nicely preserved in this antique book. ** Brown buckram covers have decorative blind tooling on front and back. Spine with gilt is notably sunned. Head and talk of spine are crushed. Overall moderate edgewear to covers, including exposed board at corners. Binding is strong and secure, as well as cocked so that front board protrudes over back board. Covers are faded along the edges, with some scuffing, dirt and staining. Pastedowns and illustrations are severely foxed. Scattered light foxing throughout, with scarce signs of edgewear. Interior is free of marginalia and underlining. Gutter is opened, exposing binding threads at page 169 and illustration. Binding is still in place and secure. (Please see photos.) Text block edges are dusty and foxed. Book may exhibit additional minor signs of age or wear. Postage for oversized and international shipping will be calculated by size and weight. AbeBooks shipping quotes are ESTIMATES only.

        Songs Of Innocence And Of Experience, shewing the Two Contrary States of the Human Soul.

      London: W. Pickering, Chancery Lane, and W. Newbery, 6, Chenies Street, Bedford Square, 1839. Small 8vo, xxi, (3), 74 pp. Original pebbled plum cloth, upper cover lettered in gilt (partly worn away as often), a very good copy in a variant original binding, slightly worn around the edges, upper hinge a touch weak, internally bright and very attractive. First Typographical Edition, the issue with the poem “The Little Vagabond” not present - this has long been held to be the first issue (see Keynes) although others have claimed that it was present but cancelled due to content and thus this is the second issue. Either case is plausible; copies of each issue turn up with about the same frequency which is to say very rarely. The preface (by J.J. Garth Wilkinson) gives a mostly favorable account of Blake’s life in the context of his work and concludes stirringly: “If the volume gives one impulse to the New Spiritualism which is now dawning on the world;-if it leads one reader to think, that all Reality for him, in the long run, lies out of the limits of space and time; and that spirits, and not bodies, and still less garments, are men; if it gives one blow, even the faintest, to those term-shifting juggleries which usurp the name of “Philosophical Systems,” (and all the energies of all the forms of genuine Truth must be henceforth expended on these effects,) it will have done its work in its little day...” Keynes, Blake, 135 (issue without “The Little Vagabond"). Bentley, Blake Books, 171 (this issue said by Bentley to have two leaves cancelled by the editor out of prudishness).

      Paris, Firmin Didot Frères 1834, 1835 and 1839. Three volumes. - Imperial-folio (c. 54x34 cm). Vol. I: (2) lvs. (half-title, author's portrait), (2) lvs. (main title, author's dedication letter to the members of the Academie des Beaux Arts), 8 pp. (Rapport fait a l'Academie des Beaux Arts .), XVI pp. (introduction), p. 17 - 56, (1) leaf, 10 pp. Numbered lithogr. plates 1-36, 1-6, 1-6 and 1 map (Brazil). Vol. II: (2) lvs. (half and main title), II pp. (introduction), 162 pp., (1) leaf. (41) lvs. with 51 numbered lithogr. plates, 2 maps (Rio de Janeiro). Vol. III: (2) lvs.(half and main title), XVI pp. (Notes historiques), II pp. (introduction), p. (3) - 252. (51) lvs. with 54 numbered lithogr. plates, 1 facsimile (declaration of abdication of king Pedro I.). New vellum bindings, gilt-stamped titles to spines. First and original edition; a complete copy. Very rare. The 3 volumes contain all over all 153 plates, 3 lith. maps, the portrait and 1 facsimile. Most of the plates were made by C. Motte and Thierry (Frères) and drawn by the author himself (some in collaboration with Pauline de Portès). The collation: Particularly the first volume often is incomplete: Very rare the 8 leaves Rapport fait a l'Academie des Beaux Arts . are bound in (exept our copy we found it only in the refence copiey of Borba de Moraes and Barreto, not in Collection Bosch, in Berger, Garraux, Baldus and Conrad. The 4 lvs. preliminaries are incomplete often too. About the maps: The Table général des sommaires (vol. III, p. 243 ff.) speaks about 1 map each volume (Brazil, Bay of Rio, city map of Rio de Janeiro). The fact of 5 maps mentioned by Borba de Moraes must be an error. In many copies the numbered plates are incomplete: The correct number (153 without portrait, maps and facsimile) is listed in the Bosch catalogue and by Borba de Morais; Barreto mentions 137, Garraux and Baldus 139 and Conrad 151 ("outstanding lithographs"). New end-papers and fly-leaves. Mostly uncut copy with wide margins. Leaves professionally cleaned, a brown-stain to the three main titles (margins). All leaves reinforced at joint, restored tears to 2 leaves (3 tears to last leaf of vol. III / plate slightly affected). Minor staining, 1 leaf more intensively (some letters affected). A few annotations in pencil. A wonderful copy with wide margins and very well printed plates.

        Rotterdam plattegrond - Temminck.

      Platte grond der stad Rotterdam, vervaardigd volgens kadastrale plans, opgedragen aan Edel Achtbare Heeren Burgemeester en Wethouders dezer stadUitgegeven in 1839 door L.F. Temminck, in koper gegraveerd door D. Veelwaard en Zonen, gedrukt op vier bladen door Wed. Koning & Brugman. Deels later, met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (prent) 75 x 123 cm.Steeds weer bestond bij Rotterdamse stadsbestuurders behoefte aan een grootschalige betrouwbare kaart waarop ook alle percelen zijn aangeduid. In 1827 wordt door de fabriekmeesters, die de directie voeren over de Fabricage, de technische dienst van de stad, bij Burgemeesters en Wethouders aangedrongen op het laten vervaardigen van een plattegrond van de gemeente. Pas twaalf jaar later wordt deze wens vervuld door Leonardus Temminck, controleur en bewaarder van het kadaster van Rotterdam. Aan het stadsbestuur worden vijf gekleurde en vijf ongekleurde exemplaren geleverd.Sinds de verschijning van de vorige kaart (in 1800) is het gebied van de gemeente behoorlijk uitgebreid. De gemeente Cool is ingelijfd, West-Blommersdijk en Oost-Blommerswijk en Rubroek staan nu voor het eerst op een plattegrond.Door de zeer dichte bebouwing van de binnenstad is het Temminck, door het ontbreken van gegeven daarover, niet overal mogelijk geweest de onbebouwde gedeeltes van de percelen weer te geven, maar slechts de kadastrale perceelgrenzen. Het grondgebruik buiten de singels is op de kaart wel mooi aangeduid. Met name van de tuinaanleg wordt een prachtig beeld gegeven. Een groot aantal straten, stegen en wateren, openbare gebouwen, bedrijven en buitenplaatsen zijn aangeduid. Dit en de zeer precieze kartering, maken deze kaart tot een uiterst belangrijke bron van kennis van Rotterdam aan de vooravond van de ingrijpende veranderingen, die de stad in de negentiende eeuw zou ondergaan.Prijs: € 5.950,- (incl. 21% BTW, incl. lijst).
