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).

SELBY, Prideaux John (1788-1867)
(London, 1841. A lovely engraving from the second edition of Selby's "Illustrations of British Ornithology". Watermarked "J Whatman 1833." In excellent condition. One of Selby's most appealing engravings from Volume II: Water Birds Prideaux John Selby was a versatile gentleman naturalist. Born on 23 July 1788 in Alnwick, Northumberland, he inherited Twizell House and its estate in 1804, and throughout his life did not neglect his duties as a landowner, magistrate, High Sheriff, and then Deputy Lieutenant of Northumberland. He married Lewis Tabitha Mitford, the daughter of Bertram Mitford of Mitford Castle, Northumberland, in 1810, and by 1817 had a happy marriage, three daughters, and a house that had become a sort of upmarket staging-post for naturalists heading North and South along the nearby Great North Road. Visitors were to include John James Audubon (who gave Selby and his brother-in-law Robert Mitford lessons in drawing), Sir William Jardine (one of Selby's closest friends and a collaborator on various later works), John Gould, William Yarrell, H.E.Strickland, to name but a few. Natural history and ornithology had been Selby's passions from youth, and Christine Jackson notes, in her excellent introduction to the Sotheby's catalogue of the sale of the Bradley Martin collection of Selby watercolours, that, besides "collecting and preserving birds, Selby had observed them in the field, making careful notes of their habitat and habits. At his leisure, he also sensitively colored drawings of them. With this accumulation of practical knowledge, specimens, and some drawing … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paris: 1841. Très rare. LÉVI (Éliphas) - [Abbé Constant] L'Assomption de la Femme ou Le Livre de l'Amour. Par l'abbé Constant. Paris, Aug. Le Gallois, chez Pilout, 1841 [Imprimerie de Pommeret et Guénot] 1 volume in-12 (15,8 x 10,8 cm) de XXVIII-252 [i.e. 152] pages. Reliure de l'époque demi-basane caramel, plats de papier marbré. Papier vélin fin dépourvu de rousseurs. Reliure en bon état. Coiffe supérieure frottée. Légers frottements et plats très légèrement pliés au centre, sans conséquence pour le volume. Édition originale. L'abbé Alphonse Constant, plus connu sous le pseudonyme d'Eliphas Lévi, est né en 1816 et mort en 1875 à Paris. Il fut professeur d'Hébreu au Petit Séminaire St Sulpice et s'est occupé d'art (de peinture particulièrement) puis de politique : de ce dernier chef il subit même quelques mois de prison. En 1848, il quitte définitivement la soutane et épouse Mlle Noémie Cadiot, qui est connue comme romancière, sculpteur et journaliste sous le nom de Claude Vignon. Cette union, peu heureuse, fut annulée au bout de quelques années, et en 1875 après la mort de l'abbé Constant, sa veuve épousa Maurice Rouvier; député de Marseille, et plus tard Ministre et président du Conseil. Dans les dernières années de sa vie, l'abbé Constant dut demander ses moyens de subsistance à un petit commerce de fruiterie. Son pseudonyme, Eliphas Lévi Zaed est la traduction en hébreu francisé de ses trois noms : Alphonse, Louis, Constant, mot à mot. (Caillet). Eliphas Lévi est considéré comme le rénovateur de l'occultisme en France au XIXe siècle. Cet ouvrage, l'un des premiers de l … [Click Below for Full Description]

BRAHMS, Johannes 1833-1897
1841. Briefwechsel Vol. 3, pp. 107-108.Bruch and Brahms had not been on good terms for some years, but their differences were put aside for the death of Spitta. This short letter from Brahms had a strong impact on Bruch, who wrote to the publisher Simrock: "It is a beautiful letter, so warm and deeply felt - one sees once again that when it comes to it, this strange and significant human being has his heart in the right place." Field: Max Bruch: His Life and Works, p. 259.Spitta (1841-1894) pioneered the burgeoning field of musicology, most notably with his epic biography of J.S. Bach. Upon his death, Max Bruch, Heinrich von Herzogenberg, and Joseph Joachim sought to pay for an appropriate gravestone, and Bruch wrote to Brahms asking for a contribution. Adolf von Hildebrand (1847-1921) was a noted German sculptor.. 3 pp. of a bifolium (176 x 230 mm). In black ink with autograph note in Bruch's hand in pencil dated Ischl, June 2, 1894 to upper outer corner of first page. In German (with translation). Brahms enthusiastically responds to Bruch's request for a contribution in order to commission a monument to the recently-deceased German music historian Philipp Spitta. "So deeply touched and moved by Spitta's sudden death, as I seldom am by the death of a man, it comes to me as a gentle consolation that I may take part in this proof of love and adoration for him... I'll send you 500 Mk for now, of course waiting for more news about your beautiful project. I am especially pleased that you are contacting such a master as Hildebrandt[!]."Slightly worn and browned; creased at … [Click Below for Full Description]

Rare early example. Please message with any questions. Per Wikipedia; In 1831, Alexis de Tocqueville and Gustave de Beaumont were sent by the French government to study the American prison system. In his later letters Tocqueville indicates that he and Beaumont used their official business as a pretext to study American society instead.[3] They arrived in New York City in May of that year and spent nine months traveling the United States, studying the prisons, and collecting information on American society, including its religious, political, and economic character. The two also briefly visited Canada, spending a few days in the summer of 1831 in what was then Lower Canada (modern-day Quebec) and Upper Canada (modern-day Ontario). After they returned to France in February 1832, Tocqueville and Beaumont submitted their report, Du système pénitentiaire aux États-Unis et de son application en France, in 1833. When the first edition was published, Beaumont was working on another book, Marie, ou, L'esclavage aux Etats-Unis (two volumes, 1835), a social critique and novel describing the separation of races in a moral society and the conditions of slaves in the United States.
