        Histoire et Tableau de l'Univers (4 Tomes - Complet)

      4 vol. in-8 cartonnage romantique richement orné, Gaume Frères, Paris, 1841, 484 ; 598 ; 540 ; xv-654 pp. Très rare exemplaire bien complet des 4 tomes. Julien-François Daniélo (1806-1886) fut un temps secrétaire de Chateaubriand, et "l'aida dans ses recherches sur l'Empire romain. Son nom est cité avec éloges dans la préface des Etudes Historiques" (Larousse, GDU, VI, 75). Dans ce travail impressionnant, une large place est faite aux systèmes philosophiques et théologiques de l'Orient. Dans sa préface au tome troisième, tout entier consacré aux pensées et philosophies de l'Inde, l'auteur indique : "Je regarde ce volume comme essentiel pour la connaissance des traditions, de la religion, de la littérature et de la philosophie des hindous. Je ne crains pas de dire que jusqu'ici nous n'avions encore rien d'aussi étendu, rien d'aussi authentique sur ce vaste sujet, dont l'importance et l'éclat s'en vont croissant de jour en jour. J'ai toujours puisé aux sources originales, et je crois candidement avoir fait un livre neuf, sinon pour la forme, du moins pour la matère ; je crois que l'Inde est tout un hémisphère de la pensée humaine, qui lui manquait jusqu'ici [...] ". Le dernier tome est très largement consacré à la Chine. Etat satisfaisant (tome 3 presque débroché, divers accrocs au fragile et beau cartonnage, rouss. et mouill. claires variables). Prix en l'état. L'ouvrage est souvent attribué à tort à l'Abbé Jean-Paul Danielo, député (1808-1857). Français

        Autograph letter signed, with a fine illustration.

      Oxford, 6. VIII. 1841. - 4to. 2¾ pp. on bifolium. To an unidentified recipient: "I have been favoured by your letter of June 29th, in which you have given me your opinion of your drawing of Blenheim, for which I am very much obliged. As the drawing was then in London, I thought it best to defer replying to your letter till I should have it before me, or till I had made the alterations you mentioned, which I believe I have now completed, and which undoubtedly improve it very much. In the first place I have darkened the large green oak No. 1, on the right, also the lower part of the warm oak No. 2 on the left, the upper part, at present, I am unwilling to alter unless I find that it be your wish that I should do so. The Wych Elm No. 3 was very yellow, but I have now made it somewhat green, such as it might be when the foliage has undergone a partial change only. The small beech trees remain much the same, for some time I was unwilling to do any thing to them, I have however made them a little darker. I have endeavoured to work up the distance and building to the effect you desired; and the ferns in the foreground I have varied both in effect and colour. I should say that I have not done much to the building, and was unwilling for some time to touch it, but after making the other alterations, I ventured also to deepen and warm it a little, and I now think it better. I shall be much obliged if you will inform me if you recollect any other little thing that you desire I should do to it, and I shall be most happy to do my best to work up to your idea of the subject. I must beg to say that I agree entirely with you as to propriety of strengthening the effect according to your suggestion [.]".

        Popular Treatise on the Art of Photography, including Daguerreotype

      1841. First Edition . HUNT, Robert. A Popular Treatise on the Art of Photography, including Daguerréotype, and All the New Methods of Producing Pictures. Glasgow: Richard Griffin, 1841. Octavo, early plain blue paper wrappers and endpapers. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $6500.First edition of HuntÂ’s landmark photographic work, with 29 in-text illustrations and frontispiece featuring one of the earliest representations of a negative print.In the dramatic years of photography's early growth, with Niépce developing heliography, Daguerre the daguerreotype and Fox Talbot the calotype, Robert Hunt (1807-87), a British chemist, geologist and photographer, broke new ground with this ""very first general treatise on photography"" (Reilly, Albumen & Salted Paper Book). A pioneering text, it successfully broadened the influence, art and scientific uses of photography while also exploring new photographic processes. ""On the discovery of photography Hunt at once began a series of careful experiments, and soon published in the Philosophical Transactions several papers on his results, one being the discovery that the protosulphate of iron could be used as a developing agent"" (DNB). ""With characteristic unselfishness, Hunt made [his and other discoveries] public during the early '40s."" His innovation of ""protosulphate of iron had many advantages over gallic acid as a developing agentÂ… Its importance in shortening exposure time ""compels us to pay particular attention to its introduction into photography"" (Eder, 326). Two years after this book's publication, Hunt produced what many consider to be the first color photograph, using a chromatype process to create a direct positive image in hues of orange or lilac. With frontispiece plate of a photographic positive and negative—one of the earliest known representations of the negative print. Gernsheim Incunabula 653. Some edge-wear to brittle text, a few stains to title page and gutter margin of Introduction. Foxing to later wrappers. A very good copy of this scarce and seminal work.

        19 Treaties. Slave Trade.

      1841. First Edition . (PARLIAMENT). Nineteen Treaties and Documents on the Slave Trade. London: Harrison and Sons, et al., 1841-1886. Folio, contemporary three-quarter polished brown calf, red and green morocco spine labels, marbled boards. Laid-in Correspondence Respecting Treaty of December 17, 1885, original self-wrappers, contemporary stitching. $3000.First edition of this major 19th assemblage of official printings of treaties and pivotal documents signed by Britain, Portugal, Madagascar, Zanzibar, Muscat, France and other nations in “the hope of bringing the slave trade to an end” (Hugh Thomas), this handsome folio volume from the library of the British Vice-Consulate in Antananarivo, Madagascar.Throughout the 18th century British merchants “had been the greatest of slave traders… In the 19th, however, their government embarked upon a crusade to destroy that very commerce” (Thomas, 591). Yet that goal was hampered by fierce discord, rising profits in sugar and cotton, and objections by the United States and others who saw this as another grasp at control over the high seas. “It became obvious that abolition could only be achieved if a [British] naval force was supported by diplomacy; and what seemed to be several achievements of this kind were soon registered.” This volume, with its official printings of 19 treaties and documents from 1822-1886, is a rare record of those pivotal beginnings. Here is “the system of international law which Britain sought to inspire, and with which some other nations collaborated without enthusiasm, in the hope of bringing the slave trade to an end.” As noted by historian Hugh Thomas, there were key lessons in these “treaties with three potentates in East Africa, the king of Eastern Madagascar, the sultan of Zanzibar, and the imam of Muscat… [For] the African side of the Atlantic slave trade had changed in the 19th century almost as much as the American and European” (Slave Trade, 651-79).Pamphlets in this volume:*Convention Between Her Majesty and the King of the French, for the Suppression of the Traffic in Slaves.

        Grammaire égyptienne, ou Principes généraux de l'écriture sacrée égyptienne appliquée a la représentation de la langue parlée... Publiée sur le manuscript autographe, par l'ordre de M. Guizot...

      Paris: Firmin Didot Fréres, 1836 [-1841]. First edition, rare in the original printed wrappers, of Champollion's monumental work on Egyptian grammar, which laid the foundations for all subsequent discoveries in Egyptology. It contains the first printed list of hierolglyphs (260 in all). "The Grammar set out Champollion's theory and classification of hieroglyphic signs, with their values and their equivalents in hieratic; in addition, it showed how the different parts of speech, including verb conjugations and noun declensions, were represented in hieroglyphic signs, with illustrative phrases taken from the monuments" (Robinson, The Revolutionary Life of Jean-Francois Champollion, 2012). Champollion himself had high expectations for his work. He is famously quoted for telling his brother Jacques-Joseph Champollion-Figeac: "To be honest, I hope that this will be my calling-card to posterity." We have been unable to locate any copy in original printed wrappers sold at auction. In 1799 Napoleon's army uncovered an ancient stele in the Nile delta, now commonly known as the Rosetta Stone. Its inscription, recorded in three distinct scripts - ancient Greek, Coptic, and hieroglyphic - would provide scholars with the first clues to unlocking the secrets of Egyptian hieroglyphs, a language lost for nearly two millennia. Born in Figeac, France, Champollion (1790-1832) became interested in hieroglyphs, and first learned about the Rosetta stone, on a childhood visit to Joseph Fourier, who was Napoleon's scientific advisor on his 1798 Egyptian expedition. As a boy he learnt many languages, including Hebrew, Arabic, Syriac, Chaldean and Chinese, and later added Coptic, Ethiopic, Sanskrit, Persian and others. To crack the code of the hieroglyphic script, Champollion started with Egyptian obelisks in Rome and papyri in European collections. In 1822 he gave a lecture, published as the Lettre à M. Dacier relative à l'alphabet des hiéroglyphes phonétiques, in which he identified hieroglyphic letters in royal names. He made his sole visit to Egypt in 1828-29, conducting the first systematic survey of the country's monuments, history and archaeology, and studying the tombs in the Valley of the Kings (a name he first coined). On his return, the first chair in Egyptian history and archaeology was created for him at the Collège de France. Champollion died on 4 March 1832 as a result of a stroke, while preparing the results of his expedition for publication. "After the first volume of Monuments de l'Égypte et de la Nubie came the publication in 1836 of Champollion's almost completed deathbed project, his Egyptian grammar ... it was published exactly as it stood in the manuscript, and dedicated by Champollion-Figeac to [Champollion's former teacher, Silvestre] de Sacy" (Robinson). Hieroglyphic writing had long fascinated scholars such as Athanasius Kircher in the seventeenth century and Georg Zoega in the eighteenth. As early as 1802, the Frenchman Silvestre de Sacy (1758-1838) and the Swede Johan David Akerblad (1763-1813) tried to penetrate the secrets of the Rosetta stone. Between 1814 and 1818, the artifact was studied by the celebrated English scientist Thomas Young, who had many of the same language skills as Champollion - but it would be Champollion who would eventually break the code. Champollion's quest really began in 1808, when he determined that fifteen signs of the demotic script corresponded with alphabetic letters in the Coptic language. He therefore concluded that this modern language held at least the last vestiges of that spoken by the ancient Egyptians. By 1818, after having examined an obelisk from Philae, he came to understand that some of the glyphs had a phonetic value and were thus part of an alphabet, even though other symbols were strictly symbolic ideograms. But his real breakthrough came with the Rosetta Stone. Others had examined this stele before him, but it was Champollion who recognized Ptolemy's name in Greek and demotic, and was thereby able to identify the hieroglyphic rendering. Champollion did not publish any of his decipherment work, concealing it from his competitors, until in 1822 he read his famous Letter to M. Dacier, the permanent secretary of the Académie des Inscriptions et des Belles Lettres. In this document he wrote: "I am convinced that the same hieroglyphic-phonetic signs used to represent the sound of Greek and Roman proper names were used in hieroglyphic texts carved long before the Greeks came to Egypt, and that these already reproduced sounds or articulation in the same way as the cartouches carved under the Greeks and Romans. The discovery of this precious and decisive fact is due to my work on pure hieroglyphic script. It would be impossible to prove it in the present letter without going into lengthy detail." Some of the conclusions presented in this Letter later had to be corrected, the definitive conclusions being presented in the Grammaire égyptienne and in the Dictionnaire Egyptien en écriture hiéroglyphique (1841). As explained in the Preface to the present work, publishing the original meticulous manuscript was a monumental effort, and required that all the different alphabetic languages (French, Latin, Greek, Coptic, etc.) were set in the usual way in type, blank spaces being left for the hieroglyphs. The typesetting was then transferred to lithographic plates where the hieroglyphs were engraved and then each page, including type and hieroglyphs, reprinted lithographically. This was the first time such a technique was used in France. The work consists of three parts, the first two (pp. 1-245 & 246-460) being issued together in 1836. The third part (pp. 461-555) was issued five years after the first two (colophon dated 1841). Copies in the original printed wrappers are recorded in two states, either all three parts bound together (as here), or in two volumes with the third part bound separately. Curiously the front wrapper refers only to the 'Première Partie', although the rear wrapper states that the work appeared in three parts. Brunet I, 1780; Gay, Bibliographie des ouvrages relatifs à l'Afrique et à l'Arabe, 1729. Folio, pp. [x], viii, xxiii, 555, [1]. Lithographed hieroglyphs throughout, some printed in red. Original printed wrappers (some wear and small tears, rear wrapper with a horizontal tear well repaired), entirely uncut.

        Historique de la découverte improprement nommée Daguerréotype, précédée d'une notice sur son véritable inventeur feu M. Joseph-Nicéphore Niepce de Chalons-sur-Saone.

      Paris, Astier, 1841. ____ Première édition. Isidore Niepce décrit les recherches et découvertes de son père entre 1822 et 1827. Après la mort de celui-ci en 1833, il avait été l'associé de Daguerre, qui poursuivait seul ses travaux. Il démontre que c'est "Joseph Nicéphore Niepce (qui) est l'inventeur de la découverte qui consiste à reproduire spontanément, par l'action de la lumière, avec les dégradation des teintes, les images reçues dans la chambre noire. Et le procédé de M. Daguerre n'est qu'un admirable perfectionnement de cette découverte." Exemplaire complet de la planche hors-texte et du feuillet d'errata à la fin. Légères pointes de rousseurs. Relié à la suite : DAVANNE. Nicéphore Niepce, inventeur de la photographie. Paris, Gauthier-Villars, 1885. In-8 de 33 pp. (couvertures imprimées conservées). Conférence faite à Chalons-sur-Saône, pour l'inauguration de la statue de Nicéphore Niepce, le 22 juin 1885. Bon exemplaire. ***** First edition. " History of the Discovery improperly called 'Daguerreotype,' preceded by a notice of its real inventor, the late M. Joseph Nicephore Niepce, by his son, Isidore Niepce. Isidore Niepce describes the researches and discoveries of his father between 1822 and 1827. After his death in 1833, Joseph Nicephore Niepce had been the partner of Daguerre, who continued his work alone. Isidore demonstrates that his father is the inventor of the discovery, which consists in spontaneously reproducing, by the action of light, the images received in a dark room. Thus, "the process of M. Daguerre is but an admirable perfection of this discovery." In-8. Collation : 72, (2) pp., 1 planche.

        Die Posaune des jüngsten Gerichts über Hegel den Atheisten und Antichristen. Ein Ultimatum.

      Leipzig, Otto Wigand, 1841. 8vo. 168 S. Zeitgenössischer roter Leinenband mit Goldrückenprägung. Sauberer Zustand! Sehr seltene Erstausgabe, die anonym erschien, Bauer aber schnell als Autor publik wurde. - Bauer (1809-1882) war seinerzeit und mit der vorliegenden Arbeit federführend bei der theoretischen Begründung einer linkshegelianischen Auffassung. Er gehörte mit Ludwig Feuerbach, Karl Marx, Max Stirner, Friedrich Köppen und Arnold Ruge zum Kreis der \"Junghegelianer\". Nach dem Studium der Theologie an der Universität Berlin beim Hegelanhänger Philipp Konrad Marheineke und der Habilitation im Jahre 1834 ging er im Jahre 1839 nach Bonn, da er einen Lehrstuhl in Berlin für aussichtlos hielt. Er zog seinen Freund Karl Marx im Jahre 1841 nach Bonn nach, wo sie den Höhepunkt Ihrer Freundschaft erlebten. Die vorliegende Schrift, die in dieser Zeit publiziert wurde, sollte eine gemeinsame Fortsetzung erfahren. Das konservative Regiment des neuen Königs Friedrich Wilhelm IV. zerschlug aber auch hier alle Hoffnung, auch der Lehrstuhl in Bonn blieb eine Illusion. - In der vorliegenden Arbeit begründet er seine linkshegelianische Auffassung: \"Bauer spoke not in his own voice, but in the ironic guise of a conservative critic of Hegel, attributing to Hegel his own revolutionary views... (He) interpreted Hegel as sounding a call for revolution, to bring this state into being. Bauer claimed that the consequences of Hegel`s system were the overthrow of church and state; and that Hegel`s conservative critics were right to see him as the most dangerous adversary of the Restoration. Written ironically as pietistic denunciations, (he) attributed to Hegel a theory of infinite self-consciousness, in which the concept of substance and a transcendent absolute were necessary but self-annulling illusions... Bauer identified a tension in Hegel`s thought between Spinoza and Fichte, between inert, undifferentiated substance and creative form. The Posaune, however, argued that the Spinozist moment, though necessary to Hegel`s dialectic, was fully assimilated to infinite self-consciousness\" (Douglas Moggach, Stanford Encyclopaedia of Philosophy). - Vorrede und Eingang; I.

        THE RECEPTION OF THE REV. J. WILLIAMS AT TANNA, IN THE SOUTH SEAS, THE DAY BEFORE HE WAS MASSACRED. [and:] THE MASSACRE OF THE LAMENTED MISSIONARY, THE REV. J. WILLIAMS, AND MR. HARRIS.

      [London: George Baxter, ]. 1841 - Two oil-colored "Baxter prints," 8 x 12 inches each (visible dimensions within the mat). Matted and in contemporary burnished wood frames. A bit of light spotting, mostly in the sky of the second print, else in fine condition. A remarkable pair of rare and interesting prints depicting the mission to the South Seas by the Rev. John Williams, and his murder at the hands of natives on the island of Erromango. The prints were produced through an unusual oil-colored process invented by the pioneering British print- maker George Baxter, who was a close friend of Rev. Williams and who created these prints as a memorial to his friend, and as a way of raising funds for Williams' family. Rev. John Williams (1796-1839) was a member of the London Missionary Society, and was in the third group of missionaries to visit Tahiti, arriving there in 1817. Williams then went on to Australia, where he helped conduct the first Evangelical sevice in Van Diemen's Land, and he also preached in Raiatea in French Polynesia. In 1838 Williams sailed aboard the missionary ship Camden for the South Seas, visiting the island of Erromango, in what is now a southern province of Vanuatu, in late 1839. He was initially greeted warmly, but shortly after his arrival the natives of the island turned on him and his colleagues, killing Williams and a colleague. Those events are shown in these two prints. The first image shows Williams and his cohorts coming ashore in a small boat and being greeted - with a welcoming curiosity - by the natives. A chief of the natives urges his people to welcome the visitors, while Williams stands at the front of the small boat and another missionary displays colored cloths and a looking glass. The faint outline of the Camden and a few other small landing boats can be seen in the right side of the image, though it seems that Baxter never fully colored them in in this copy of the print. The second print is a scene of violent mayhem as the Rev. Williams, waist deep in the surf, is clubbed to death by attacking natives. Dozens of natives are shown running from the shore into the water in an effort to kill Williams and his colleagues, who attempt their escape by boat. Mr. Harris is seen on shore, being speared and clubbed to death. George Baxter, who produced these prints, was among the most innovative of British print-makers and a close friend of the Rev. Williams. Much of Baxter's output in the early 1840s was devoted to illustrations of missionary activities abroad, and Courtney Lewis says that "this period includes Baxter's best and most original work." Baxter (1804-1867) is credited with creating a method of using woodblocks to produce color prints, thereby making color prints commercially viable for the first time in Great Britain. Later he pioneered a printing method using colored oils, which is the method used to produce this pair of prints. Baxter produced a portait print of Rev. Williams in 1837 and others followed, and the two men became good friends. Lewis notes that when Williams left the Thames aboard the Camden, Baxter was one of the last people to see him off. When Baxter heard the news of Williams death he produced these prints and donated the proceeds to the missionary's family. Baxter drew the scenes based on the testimony of Mr. Leary, one of the survivors of the mission. He offered the prints as a pair, as they are here, or as a "book" accompanied by seven pages of descriptive text and called TWO SPECIMENS OF PRINTING IN OIL COLOURS. The prints could also be purchased in sepia, or fully colored, as here. The DNB says that Baxter produced some of his most poweful work for the missionary societies, and calls the print of the massacre of Rev. Williams "his most celebrated print in this context." OCLC locates only five copies of this pair of prints, at the National Library of Australia, the State Library of New South Wales, the National Library of New Zealand, the University of Toronto (Victoria University), and the Univer

Dalla missiva si evince lo stretto legame che legò Pellico e Juliette Colbert: un'amicizia fedele e profonda rinsaldata nel tempo da una strettissima comunanza di ideali e da un proficuo rapporto di collaborazione. ''..la signora Marchesa ha rischiato ieri di ammazzarsi.. fu una caduta con forte colpo dell'occipite al muro e con danno dei lombi.. ''. Giulia di Barolo fu celebre filantropa e serva di Dio.

Although Gauss said that he had possessed the theory forty years before and considered it too elementary to publish, it has been labelled his greatest work by one of his scientific biographers (Clemens Schäfer, in Werke, XI, pt. 2, sec. 2, 189ff.).

        Chess Player's Chronicle, The

      London : R Hastings, 1841. 432 pages with diagrams. Octavo (8 3/4" x 5 3/4") bound in period cloth with blind stamped covers with gilt insignia, and gilt decoration and lettering to spine. Title in red and green. Volume II (2). (Betts: 7-1) First edition.The Chess Player's Chronicle, founded by Howard Staunton and extant from 1841–56 and 1859–62, was the world's first successful English-language magazine devoted exclusively to chess. Various unrelated but identically or similarly named publications were published until 1902. The earliest chess magazine in any language was the French Le Palamède, published in 1836-39 and 1842-47. In 1837 George Walker introduced an English-language magazine, the Philidorian, that was devoted to "chess and other scientific games". Only six issues of it were published, and it "expired in May, 1838". The Chess Player's Chronicle became the first successful English-language chess magazine. In 1840 or 1841 Staunton bought the fortnightly magazine The British Miscellany and Chess Player's Chronicle. In 1841 it became The Chess Player's Chronicle. In 1843, the Chess Player's Chronicle became a shilling monthly magazine. Staunton "made the inclusion of a large number of games by himself and other leading players of the day a special feature" of the magazine. He also used the magazine as a forum for attacking others. Staunton was the owner and editor of the magazine until the early 1850s, when he sold it to R.B. O'Brien. O'Brien became editor of the magazine, but was unable to continue its success and discontinued it in 1856 because of financial losses and his own illness. It reappeared in 1859 under the editorship of Ignatz Kolisch, Zytogorski, and Josef Kling, but survived only until July 1862. Thereafter, a number of magazines appeared with the same or similar name (such as Chess Players' Chronicle) appeared. Arthur Skipworth, assisted by William Wayte and Charles Ranken, wrote The Chess Players' Quarterly Chronicle, which was published in York from February 1868 to December 1871. Skipworth, who had left Bilsdale for Tetford Rectory, Horncastle, and John Wisker became the editors of the new The Chess Players' Chronicle in February 1872. Johann Löwenthal began writing for it in 1873. The magazine ran until 1875. In January 1876, it was succeeded by The Chess Player's Chronicle, whose editor-in-chief was J. Jenkin of Helensburgh. Its editorial staff consisted of Jenkin, Skipworth, Ranken, Wayte, and Andrew Hunter of Glasgow. Billed as a "monthly record of provincial chess", it was published at Glasgow, costing sixpence. Its short run under Jenkin's editorship was marked by xenophobia. The February issue stated that the West End Club had "cleared away the disturbing foreign element which infected the Divan" and referring to Wilhelm Steinitz as "the hot-headed little Austrian". Its third and last issue was published in March. The magazine reappeared in January 1877. It was now under Ranken's editorship, assisted by J. Crum, G. B. Fraser, Skipworth, and Wayte. The first issue apologized for "certain offensive statements and insinuations, seriously affecting the honor of some eminent players", and explained that some members of the present editorial staff had only contributed games and other inoffensive material to it in 1875. Ranken continued to edit the magazine until September 1880. In 1881, the title was enlarged to The Chess Player's Chronicle
