COLLECTIF (dont Balzac et Jules Janin)
CURMER, Paris, 1841. 9 volumes In 4°, 260 x 185 mm ; environ 600 pages et 1,2 kg par volume. Avec les faux-titres. 8 frontispices, une carte à double page, un portrait de Napoléon Ier gravé à l'eau-forte et 406 planches gravées sur bois. Edition originale, reliée en demi chagrin (demi veau pour le Prisme) aux dos ornés de fers romantiques. Reliures en bon état d'usage, intérieur très frais. Le projet des "Français peints par eux-mêmes" est à la fois satirique et historique. Dans l'introduction, Jules Janin le définit ainsi dans la préface : « Ce que nos devanciers n'ont pas fait pour nous, nous le ferons pour nos petits-neveux : nous nous montrerons à eux non pas seulement peints en buste, mais des pieds à la tête et aussi ridicules que nous pourrons nous faire. Dans cette lanterne magique, où nous nous passons en revue les uns et les autres, rien ne sera oublié, pas même d'allumer la lanterne. » Leur cahier des charges était de faire, comme leurs illustres devanciers avant eux, Molière et La Bruyère, un portrait humoristique de leurs contemporains, depuis le ramoneur jusqu'au juge en passant par la duchesse. Ainsi croqués par des écrivains célèbres et dessinés par les plus grands illustrateurs de l'époque, l'ouvrage eut un succès immense et n'a pas connu son équivalent depuis. Une collection indispensable au bibliophile aimant le style, l'humour et les portraits du 19ème siècle. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Commentaries on the Laws of England by WILLIAM BLACKSTONE 20th edition 4 Vol set incorporating alterations down to the prew\sent time by James Srewart 1841 published by Edmund Spettigue, London leather "Blackstone's Commentaries are "a monument of the Anglo-American legal and political system and one of the key influences on the thought of the Founding Fathers and the shaping of the Constitution. "All our formative documents--the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Federalist Papers, and the seminal decisions of the Supreme Court under John Marshall--were drafted by attorneys steeped in Sir William Blackstone's Commentaries on the Laws of England. So much was this the case that the Commentaries rank second only to the Bible as a literary and intellectual influence on the history of American institutions" (Robert Ferguson). Blackstone's impact on American political and legal thinking was profound and immediate. In 1775 Edmund Burke observed that nearly as many copies of Blackstone's Commentaries had been sold in America as in England. Thomas Jefferson observed that Blackstone's Commentaries were "the most lucid in arrangement which had yet been written, correct in its matter, classical in its style, and rightfully taking its place by the side of the Justinian institutes." A set of Blackstone's Commentaries is a cornerstone of any library of the history … [Click Below for Full Description]

"Jean de Charpentier, d'une famille française fixée en Saxe, étudia à l'école des mines de Freyberg (Saxe), fut attaché à l'administration des mines de Prusse, et passa en France en 1808. Il fut chargé en 1813 par le gouvernement vaudois de la direction des salines de Bex, qu'il réorganisa complètement. Des travaux d'endiguement du Rhône, en 1831, l'amenèrent à capter et à utiliser la source thermale de Lavey. Pendant son séjour à Bex, il s'adonna à la botanique et à la géologie, et s'intéressa notamment à la question des glaciers. Il fut le premier à affirmer que les blocs erratiques, déposés dans le plateau et sur le Jura suisses, avaient été amenés par la glace et non par l'eau. Cette théorie rencontra au début bien des sceptiques, entre autres Agassiz, qui en 1836, après un séjour à Bex, se rallia complètement au point de vue de Charpentier, qu'il développa et généralisa. Charpentier publia le résultat de ses recherches dans son «Essai sur les glaciers et le terrain erratique du Rhône», qui fait encore autorité.

Lower corner very slightly bumped. **** 'Proudhon's writings,which had considerable influence upon socialist thinkers of the later 19th-century, were vigorous, dialectical, full of diatribe, paradox, and destructive criticism and without any of the utopianism or mysticism of the Saint-Simoniens or Fouriéristes' - Oxford Companion to French Literature. The first work in this volume, Qu'est-ce que la propriété, began with the famous paradox 'La propriété, c'est le vol' ('Property is theft') and went on to maintain that the theory of property was a denial of the fundamental principles of justice, liberty and equality, because it enabled one set of people to exploit the labours of others.

SLIGHT, Julian
S. Horsey, Portsea. Portsea, S. Horsey, 1841. In-16, plats de bois, dos de cuir noir, tranches dorées (Reliure de l’éditeur). Émouvant livre-relique relié grâce à des morceaux de coque de l’épave du HMS Royal George, triste protagoniste de l’un des naufrages les plus meurtriers de l’histoire britannique. L’illustration se compose d’un frontispice et de 3 planches hors texte. Le HMS Royal George était le plus grand vaisseau de guerre au monde à son lancement en 1756. Il coula lors d’une manœuvre alors qu’il était au mouillage à Portsmouth en 1782, causant la mort de plus de 800 personnes se trouvant à bord. Ce petit ouvrage décrit la tragédie et les manœuvres prises à partir de 1839 par le colonel Charles Pasley pour récupérer des canons et dégager l’épave qui encombrait le port depuis presque 60 ans. La technique utilisée fut de faire exploser des barils de poudre sous l’eau, pour le plus grand plaisir des curieux venus assister au spectacle. On imagine alors aisément le succès de ce petit livre-souvenir qui connu plusieurs éditions au fur et à mesure des manœuvres qui s’étendirent sur plusieurs années. Cet exemplaire de 1841 (4e édition) porte deux étiquettes dont nous n’avons pas retrouvé mention ailleurs. La première indique qu’il a été vendu au profit des Seamen and marines’ orphans’ schools de Portsea. La seconde, imprimée en or sur papier bleu, rappelle la tragédie et indique qu’un volume portant la même note a été présenté au prince Albert. Enfin, un long ex-dono manuscrit, sans doute de la main d’un officier naval de la Seamen and marines’ orphans house, est adressé … [Click Below for Full Description]

Relation dun voyage dans lYemen, entrepris en 1837 pour le Museum dHistoire Naturelle de Paris.Paris, Benjamin Duprat (printed by Dondey-Dupré), 1841. Contemporary half calf, marbled sides, gold-tooled spine with red label, red edges. 157 pp. First edition of an account of an 1837 voyage through the Red Sea to Yemen by the naturalist Botta (1802-70), who had served as army physician to Mehmed Ali in Egypt before accepting a commission by the Paris Museum of Natural History to explore the coasts of the Red Sea. His expedition, lasting from 1836 to 1839, was much aided by the fact that he was fully fluent in Arabic. He visited Jeddah before landing in Hodeida in 1836, proceeding to Bet el-Fakih, Sebid, and Hais, Djebel-Ras, Maammara, Cahim, Djennat and Haguef, visiting Tihama and the highlands under the protection of Ibrahim Pasha and Sheikh Hussein Bin Yahia. "Bottas foremost deed in the Yemen was the ascent and exploration of the 3006 metre Djebel Sabor, south of Taizz, a climb which Forskal had vainly desired to undertake ... Botta was the first to provide details on the cultivation of and trade in the drug khat" (cf. Henze).Old ownership stamp erased from title-page, otherwise an excellent copy, appealingly bound. Rare.

JOULE, James Prescott
London: Richard & John E. Taylor, 1841. First edition, complete journal issue, of the derivation of Joule's Law, one of the fundamental laws of electricity. Joule, "in the paper now under consideration, was the first to announce the definite law that 'when a current of voltaic electricity is propagated along a metallic conductor, the heat evolved in a given time is proportional to the resistance of the conductor multiplied by the square of the electric intensity,' i.e. electric current. In the same paper he showed that the law applies, when proper allowance is made for certain disturbances, to heat produced in electrolytes. The paper also contained the first reference to a 'standard of resistance;' this consisted of a coil of ten feet of copper wire .024 inch in thickness. "These experiments contained the germs of Joule's second great discovery, the equivalence of heat and energy, which he fully developed later. But he had already made it clear that the energy set free in the battery is also proportional to the resistance of the circuit and to the square of the current" (DNB). "Joule derived the quantitative law of heat production by a voltaic current its proportionality with the square of the intensity of the current and with the resistance from a brief series of measurements of the simplest description: he dipped a coiled portion of the circuit into a test tube filled with water and ascertained the slight changes of temperature of the water for varying current intensity and resistance. The critical step in these, as well as in all his further experiments, was the measurem … [Click Below for Full Description]

Saint Nicodemus the Hagiorite [i.e. St. Nicodemus of the Holy Mountain]; Agapius the Hieromonk
Konstantin Gkarpola, Athens, 1841. Folio. [14],484 pp. plus two plates (frontispiece and church plan). In modern Greek. Expertly rebound in antique-style three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt. Frontispiece quite clean, remainder of contents moderately foxed. Very good. First edition printed in Greece (and second overall) of the classic compilation of Eastern Orthodox canon law, compiled and edited by the monks Agapius and Nicodemus of Mount Athos at the close of the 18th century. The largest published compilation of canon law in its time, PEDALION collected and provided commentary on the Canons of the Holy Apostles, of the first seven Ecumenical Councils, of regional synods through Carthage, and of numerous Church Fathers. As Greek printing on Greek soil was suppressed by the Ottoman authorities during the lives of Nicodemus and Agapius, their first manuscript was sent to Leipzig for publication. There, the hieromonk Theodoret made various unauthorized additions to the editors' commentaries, which were corrected in the present edition on the order of Patriarch Neophytos Doukas. This new edition was printed twelve years after Greek independence by Athens publisher Konstantin Gkarpola, who dedicated it to the brothers Zosimas (Zosimades), leading benefactors of the Greek Enlightenment and independence movements. PEDALION represents one of several major contributions by Nicodemus the Hagiorite (1749-1809) to the Eastern Orthodox Church in the modern era. An accomplished theologian, committed ascetic, and influential mystic, Nicodemus played a major role in the revi … [Click Below for Full Description]

A little rubbed, some skilful restoration head and tail of the spine, and to the hinges, light browning and foxing throughout, variable marginal damp-staining throughout, remains attractive and overall very good. First edition, uncommon, decidedly so in the original cloth. Mercier shipped aboard the "Constitution" on her 1839 cruise to the Pacific coast of South America. "This lively, well-written narrative presents a detailed view of life before the mast, both the daily details and the unusual moments, including the effects of running out of whiskey (cologne was substituted!)". (Lefkowicz quoted in Moebs). Mercier's account was a key source for Melville's White Jacket, Melville acknowledging the debt in one of the prefaces to the UK edition (Sealts, Melville's Reading, p.198) The "Constitution" had a library aboard, which Melville used for the basis of his description of the library on the Neversink; "One of the scenes depicted Â… had to do with the joyous opening day of a purchased library of 300 or 400 volumes aboard 'Old Ironsides' in 1839. The books in the library had already been numbered and their titles noted in a catalog 'which was forcibly dragged' from one eager sailor to another in their efforts to make selections".

ZEGGELEN, Willem Josephus.
De valkenvangst.The Hague, W.P. van Stockum, 1841. 8vo. With a wood-engraved frontispiece by "I.B." (=Johannes Bosboom). Contemporary boards (rebacked in modern dark brown half morocco). [8], 83, [1 blank] pp. Very rare first edition of a poem satirising Dutch practitioners of falconry in the early 19th century, particularly the members of the famous Royal Loo Hawking Club. De valkenvangst (the capture of falcons) contrasts the majesty of the falcons, whose manner of hunting is described at the beginning of the poem, with the basal entertainment pursued by the "falconers", who believed that they could easily restore the forgotten art of falconry.In the poem, a company including the Dutch baron Van Deelen and the Englishman Lord Littlewhit, travels to Norway to capture some falcons, parodying a real-life voyage in 1838. After numerous perils two white gyrfalcons are captured, while the noblemen amuse themselves with hunting and fishing. However, on the return voyage one of the falcons is accidentally shot and the other released by the baron's valet, who then puts a different bird in the cage. As the baron intends to reveal the falcon to his guests, a cockatoo is revealed. Binding worn at the edges. Foxed throughout and with water stains at the foot.
