        Veduta di Avellino e il Monastero di Montevergine

      ? 1840 - Veduta pittorica della città, disegno finemente eseguito ad inchiostro bruno su carta velina, poi applicata su supporto cartaceo. Antonio Senape (Roma 1788 - Napoli 1850 circa) prolifico pittore di paesaggio, condusse una vita appartata, intento a soddisfare il fiorente mercato di vedute, e qui fu attivo almeno fino ai primi anni quaranta dell'Ottocento, senza subire minimamente l'influsso del nuovo approccio alla veduta inaugurato dalla Scuola di Posillipo con Pitloo e Giacinto Gigante. Questo lavoro fa parte di uno dei suoi album "grandi". Dimensioni 435x280. Pictorial view of the city, brown ink drawing on tissue paper, laid down on paper support. Antonio Senape (Rome 1788 - Naples 1850 circa) a prolific landscape painter, led a solitary life, in order to satisfy the demand of landscape views; he worked until 1840, without being inflenced by the new course settled by the School of Posillipo and by Pitloo and Giacinto Gigante. This work is part of one of his big sketchbook. Dimensioni

        The Ladies' Flower-Garden of Ornamental Annuals

      London: William Smith,, 1840. Quarto (270 x 207 mm). Contemporary green half calf, spine gilt tooled with floriate motifs (including thistles & shamrocks), burgundy label, green moiré cloth sides, marbled edges and endpapers. 48 fine hand-coloured lithograph plates (with tissue guards) by Day & Haghe after Noel Humphreys. Head of spine chipped, joints a little rubbed. A very good, clean copy. First and best edition. The dedicatee's copy, inscribed on the verso of the front free endpaper: "Countess of Radnor" and with her crowned monogram ("AR") in the head compartment of the spine; Jane Loudon dedicated this, the first book in her series of The Ladies' Flower Garden, to Anne Judith (1790-1851), second wife of William Pleydell-Bouverie, third earl of Radnor, who she described as "alike distinguished for her love of flowers and taste for the fine arts". "Mrs. Loudon's attractive flower books, first published in the forties, were reissued ten or fifteen years later with plates that had become coarsened and joyless" (Wilfrid Blunt, The Art of Botanical Illustration, 1950, p. 236). Jane Loudon née Webb, (1807-1858), "was to Victorian gardening what Mrs Beeton was to cookery. Her beautifully illustrated books on gardening and plant identification sold in their thousands and women all over the country were enthused by them to take up gardening as a hobby" (V&A online). She met her husband, the landscape gardener and horticultural writer John Claudius Loudon, when her extraordinary early novel The Mummy! A Tale of the Twenty-Second Century (1827) - a pioneering science fiction work which set futuristic technology, including a steam plough, among the trappings of Egyptomania - was reviewed favourably by Loudon in The Gardener's Magazine. The Scot decided to "seek out the acquaintance of the writer, whom he believed to be male" (ODNB) - and they were married seven months later.

        Physiologie du système nerveux ou recherches et expériences sur les diverses classes d'appareils nerveux, les mouvemens, la voix, la parole, les sens, et les facultés intellectuelles

      1840 - 2 vol., VI-640 + [4]-644 pp., Paris, J.-B. Baillière, 1840, in-8, 2 vol, VI-640 + [4]-644 pp, 4pl, demi-veau violine, dos à nerfs orné d'un large fer romantique, Première édition française, traduite de l'allemand, sur la troisième édition. Cet ouvrage forme la partie la plus considérable du fameux traité de Physiologie de Müller (Handbuch der Physiologie des Menschen für Vorlesungen, Coblenz, Hölscher, 1834-40). Il a été ajouté au chapitre de la voix humaine, la version d'un opuscule que M. Müller venait alors de publier séparément, sur la compensation des forces physiques dans l'organe de l'homme (Ueber die Compensation der physischen Kroefte am menschlichen Stimmorgen, Berlin, 1839, avec 4 planches). Le physiologiste allemand Johannes Peter Müller (1874-1955) considéré généralement comme le père de la physiologie moderne, établit ici que la perception se produit par des organes sensoriels recevant des stimuli. Il fait partie des physiologistes qui, à partir de l'étude des sensations, sont à l'origine de la psychophysique dont procède la psychologie expérimentale. Bel exemplaire, malgré quelques rousseurs, de cet ouvrage rare. Coiffes supérieures usées. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        THE AFFIDAVIT OF ANDREW JACKSON, TAKEN BY THE DEFENDANTS IN THE SUIT OF ROBERT MAYO VS. BLAIR & RIVES FOR A LIBEL, ANALYSED AND REFUTED. (THIRD EDITION, WITH SUPPLEMENTARY NOTES.) BY ROBERT MAYO, M.D. AUTHOR OF SKETCHES OF EIGHT YEARS IN WASHINGTON, &C. &C.

      Printed for the Plaintiff,, Washington City, D.C.: 1840 - 80pp, disbound, some toning and scattered foxing. Title and last leaf with some wear to blank inner margin. Good+. Mayo began as a Jacksonian Democrat, became disenchanted, and then expressed with a vengeance his loathing of the Democrats. "An important chapter in Texas history. Mayo became acquainted with Houston in 1830, wormed from him and others the plans of the contemplated invasion of the Mexican province of Texas, the secret cryptographical correspondence, etc., and then sent all his information to President Andrew Jackson. The burden of the work goes to prove that the President was in collusion with Houston and the other conspirators in the scheme to wrest Texas from the Mexicans" [Eberstadt]. Mayo made these charges in 'Political Sketches of Eight Years in Washington'. But Blair & Rives's 'Globe' said Mayo had stolen the material- - particularly Jackson's letter to Governor Fulton of Arkansas-- to support his claims. Mayo then sued Blair & Rives for libel. Jackson's affidavit said the letter had been swiped from his files, and that Mayo was the culprit. "Mayo promptly got into action," this pamphlet laying out the whole story [Streeter TX 1351]. Mayo is loaded for bear: the first edition, also printed in 1840, had only 23 pages. 105 Eberstadt 294 [this 3d ed.]. Streeter TX 1351 note. Cohen 12013.

        Operations Carried on at the Pyramids of Gizeh in 1837: with an account of a voyage into Upper Egypt

      London: James Fraser, 1840. First edition. Hardcover. Complete with all the fine lithographic views, maps and folding plans in this seminal work on Egyptology and the great pyramids, the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and the only one that remains largely intact. Richard William Howard Vyse (1784 - 1853) was a British soldier, anthropologist and Egyptologist who undertook this investigation and discovered the only location where Pharaoh Khufu's name appeared: on the south ceiling towards the west end of Campbell's chamber. Vyse's important discovery identified Khufu (Cheops) as the builder of the Great Pyramid of Giza. Vyse gave the world a glimpse of contemporary life in Egypt in these volumes, including scenes of everyday life, farmers working their fields and tending livestock, fishing and fowling, carpentry, costumes, religious rituals, and burial practices. Inscriptions and texts included here allowed for research into Egyptian grammar and language. 4to. Vol I: xx, 292pp, [errata], frontispiece, fold out site map, and 30 additional plates (many folding); Vol II: x, 368pp, [errata], frontispiece and 27 additional plates (many folding); Vol III: xii, 148pp, with frontispiece, 25 maps and views (many fold out), 49 plates (many folding) The third volume is titled 'Appendix to Operations carried on at the pyramids of Gizeh in 1837.

        JIM CROW: THEATRE, COVENTRY ON MONDAY EVENING, JANUARY THE 13TH, 1840. THE CELEBRATED COMIC DANCE OF THE THREE JIM CROWS.

      Coventry, Stephen Knapp . 1840 - Woodcut and Letterpress (Very Good, tiny holes on the left-hand site, a tiny repaired hole in the upper part) 31,5 x 20,5 cm (12.2 x 8 inches). A rare early playbill advertises the Jump Jim Crow blackface theatre act at the Theatre Royale in Worcester, England. - This extremely rare playbill advertises the theatre performance Three Jim Crows on the evening of January 13, 1840, in the Theatre in Coventry, by the Brothers Hemming. The Jim Crow act, or Jump Jim Crow, as a blackface theatre musical and tap dancing act, first preformed in 1828, by a white comedian Thomas Dartmouth (T.D.) "Daddy" Rice. In the early 1830s the first song sheets with the song were published by E. Riley. Due to popularity of the act, Jim Crow had become a pejorative meaning African American by 1838, and from this the laws of racial segregation until the 1960s became known as Jim Crow laws. The triple image of Jim Crow on this playbill was copied after the popular image, as published on Jump Jim Crow song sheets. The Brother Hemming were acrobats, theatre and circus performers in England in 1830s and 1840s. The other plays of the evening included Alexander the Great, Gustavus or The Masked Ball and Splendid Masquerade. Very rare. We could not trace any other examples in institutions worldwide.

        Les Rébus de l'enfance ou Abécédaire en Estampes d'un genre nouveau.

      Paris: (E. Duverger for) Librairie de l'enfance et de la jeunesse de P. C. Lehuby, [1840]. Oblong 12mo (121 x 162 mm). xvi, 64 pp. Engraved title, 13 hand-colored etched plates (or transfer lithographs of etchings) containing 26 illustrations, each pair of scenes within a different whimsical and relevant ornamental border. Various typefaces. Occasional minor staining to text leaves. Publisher's green printed boards (rebacked, somewhat rubbed).*** A slightly off-beat rebus-book for children, with alphabets in large and bold types, syllabaries, and 26 short tales. These stories, for older children who can already read, each provide both a moral lesson and context for the definition of a keyword, which serves as the subject of a rebus, depicted by letters of the alphabet printed below the relevant illustration. Thus two young rascals experiment with a makeshift cannon, with the expected results (burnt hair): the illustration shows the moment of the explosion, and the caption-rebus is "p.t.," for peté (exploded or popped); or a young child sees a hearse, and her father explains the respect due any funeral procession, even that of a stranger: the illustration showing men in mourning carrying a coffin, is captioned "d.c.d." (décédé, deceased). Z is without a rebus, the editors having found themselves at a loss, and the final rebus uses the ampersand (or "et" in French). Four- to six-year olds were different then, if the dialogue is to be believed: one young Ludovic, for example, trying to identify the subject of an engraved memorial portrait held aloft by cherubs, declaims his conclusions: "J'aimerais assez à y reconnaitre les traits du brave et excellent roi Henri IV; il pouvait assez compter sur l'amour de ses sujets pour justifier l'allusion qui me semble fort heureusement exprimée par ces deux amours qui soulèvent le portrait du bon monarque pour le fixer à la colonne de la gloire"... (The rebus is "f.i.j." for effigie.) The publisher's boards contain the date, colophon, and ads for four other Lehuby publications. In 1834 Pierre Charles Lehuby took over the business of Pierre Blanchard, one of the more imaginative and influential children's book publishers of early 19th-century France. OCLC lists two copies, at the BnF and Princeton (in a later binding). Ségolène Le Men, Les abécédaires français illustrés du XIXe siècle, 634. Not in Gumuchian.
