        On the correlation of physical forces: Being the substance of a course of Lectures delivered in the London Institution in the year 1843

      London: Charles Skipper. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION, FIRST STATE of Grove's proposal of the conservation of energy: "the earliest general account of the principle." In 1842, "Sir W.R. Grove, English judge and man of science, known by his invention of a voltaic cell, explained in a lecture the idea of the interrelation of natural powers, an elaborated it in a book published in 1846 under the title of The Correlation of Physical Forces. This and the independent study in 1847 by the great German physiologist, physicist and matematician H.L.F. von Helmholtz, Ueber die Erhaltung der Kraft, contained the earliest general account of the principle now known as the 'conservation of energy'" (Dampier, A History of Science). "In this essay... Grove argued that all physical forces such as electricity, heat, light, magnetism, and so forth, should be regarded as being correlated, or mutually inter-related. Any one of these forces could be used to produce any of the others such that no particular force could be said to be the particular cause of another. Under particular circumstances any one of them might be the cause and any of the others the effect. In many ways, the essay was an argument against traditional notions of causality. Grove advanced a large number of experimental examples from the various branches of the physical sciences to substantiate his claims. He suggested that the main task of the natural philosopher was to demonstrate how this principle of correlation operated universally" (Oxford DNB). First state: Regarded as the offprint or "unpublished" state, with "by order of the managers of the London Institution, at the request of the proprietors" on title. Contained in a sammelband with a large collection of physics and engineering texts about electricity, electro-magnetism, and telegraphy (22 papers total) in various languages, with a very interesting booklet on the use of the first telegraphic cable between Europe and United-States. Grove's work is complete, with title, Preface, and 52 pages of text. London: Charles Skpper, 1846. Octavo, nineteenth-century half-red morocco over marbled boards. With cropped inscription (from Grove?) on title. A little scuffing to binding, otherwise fine. RARE.

        Terracotten des Königlichen Museums zu Berlin.

      Berlin, G. Reimer 1842 - in-4, VIII-[6]-163 pp., avec 64 planches lithographiées, sous serpentes (dont 8 totalement ou partiellement en couleurs), index, demi-veau havane, dos à nerfs orné de doubles caissons dorés, tranches mouchetées (reliure de l'époque). Rousseurs assez abondantes. L'ouvrage est le fruit du travail de l'auteur au Musée royal de Berlin, où sa connaissance des vases classiques l'avait fait recruter en 1836 comme assistant, puis nommer administrateur de la section des vases (en 1856). En effet, le Silésien Theodor Sigismund Panofka (1800-1858) est connu comme le premier érudit à avoir entrepris une étude systématique de la poterie grecque antique, en dépit de jugements parfois hâtifs : ayant effectué le voyage de Rome dès 1823, à la suite de ses études à l'Université de Berlin, il y fonda dès 1824 le groupe dit des "Hyperboréens" (Hyperboreisch-römische Gesellschaft), avec le peintre Otto Magnus von Stackerlberg, l'historien Eduard Gerhard et le collectionneur August Kestner. Tous devaient s'illustrer dans la connaissance de l'Antiquité classique. Seulement deux notices au CCF.

An acclaimed British cartographer, Aaron Arrowsmith drafted accurate, detailed charts that earned him the titles of Hydrographer to the King of England and Geographer to the Prince of Wales, extremely important distinctions during an era when Britain ruled the waves. One of the first great British cartographers of North America, Arrowsmith introduced a new standard of excellence in mapmaking in the late 18th century and almost single-handedly made London the center for the cartographic trade. Arrowsmith built his great success on this ability to attract both commercial and general viewers through his combination of visual and scientific appeal. The most influential and respected map publisher of the late 18th and early 19th centuries, Arrowsmith issued maps that were the result of careful synthesis rather than systematic, scientific inquiry. His role in cartographic production was to gather the best available information from a wide variety of sources, weigh the relative merits of conflicting data, and compile the most accurate depiction possible of an area. Arrowsmith accomplished this synthesis better than any other commercial mapmaker of his day and, as a result, his maps were the most sought after and highly prized on three continents. Phillips 6064.

        Dialogue between a Latter-day Saint and an Enquirer after Truth. (Reprinted from the Star of January 1.) To which is added, a Solemn Warning to the Methodists. By one who was formerly a Preacher among them

      Manchester: Published by P.P. Pratt, [1842]. 4pp. Octavo [22.5 cm] This work has not been sewn. Minor age toning. We are able to locate five institutional copies. According to Crawley " The first three and half pages of this tract, containing the dialogue between Enquirer and Saint, were printed from a rearrangement of the same typesetting used to print the dialogue in the Millennial Star of January 1842. Thomas Smith's 'Interesting Letter from Cheltonham', which is dated December 30, 1841, occupies the last half of the fourth page and appears only in the tract. Apparently this letter reached Parley Pratt after the January issue of the Star had been struck off, and since Smith had asked that his letter be printed and it made an appropriate companion piece for the dialogue, Parley issued the two together on pamphlet form. Dialogue directly attacks the Roman Catholic Church, the Church of England, and especially the Methodist Church, without a specific anti-Mormon work in mind, and thus marks a departure from earlier Mormon publications. Undoubtedly it arose out of the clergy's continuing anti-Mormon barrage, which the Star of December comments upon. The dialogue defends immersion as the proper mode of baptism and argues at length against baptizing infants; since the traditional churches erroneously administer this ordinance, it contends, they must be in a state of apostasy. Latter-day Saints avoid these errors, the dialogue concludes, because their doctrines were received by divine revelation. Thomas Smith's letter describes his conversion from Methodism to Mormonism and warns the Methodists not to 'oppose the work of the Lord.'" Crawley 138. Flake/Draper 6567

In the preface by Ludwig Reichenbach the following is written: "Mit viel Vergnügen habe ich die herrlichen Abbildungen des Herrn A. Harzer gesehen und habe mich überzeugt, dass derselbe auch dem Studium der Pilze, die ausgezeichnete Sorgfalt zugewendet hat, welche wir schon seit langer Zeit an seinen entomologschen Darstellungen bewundern. Aus diesen Abbildungen sieht man, was das bedeutet, wenn sich das Talent der Beobachtung, des Zeichnen, und Lithographirens in einer Person vereinigt". The excellent plates are drawn and lithographed by the author.///Stafleu & Cowan 2454; Nissen 811.

        Cockatoo Island, Port Jackson

      Sydney, 1842. Watercolour, 185 x 295 mm, framed. John Skinner Prout (1805-1876) was a largely self trained artist who arrived in Sydney with his family in December 1840. He remained for several years producing many local views but his efforts to educate the population with a series of lectures on the principles of art was met with a lack of public enthusiasm which greatly disappointed him. He visited Van Diemen's Land in 1844 and was so impressed he returned to collect his family from Sydney and resettle there.On the reverse of this watercolour a contemporary hand has written in pencil 'Cockatoo Island, Port Jackson J.S.Prout 1842', But this work clearly shows Goat Island, similar in perspective to a watercolour held in the National Library Canberra. Carton Booth's Australia has steel engravings of both Goat and Cockatoo Island based on paintings by Prout and the Goat Island image looks the most similar to this view.

        MISSIONARY LABOURS AND SCENES IN SOUTHERN AFRICA

      London: John Snow, Paternoster-Row, 1842. First edition, seventh thousand. Profusely illustrated throughout with full and partial-page engravings by G. Baxter, including a very finely executed hand-coloured frontispiece and a large folding map of South Africa. 8vo, bound in contemporary beautifully decorated maroon morocco with elaborate arabesque styled gilt and blind decorations on the covers; the spine with dense gilt paneled designs within compartments between raised bands. xvi, 624,12 ads, pp. A clean and handsome copy, very well preserved with only very minor age evidence. AN UNUSUALLY HANDSOME AND ELABORATELY BOUND COPY OF THIS CLASSIC WORK. The preliminary chapters deal with the opinions of the author on the origin of the Hottentots, and give a synopsis of the early work of the London Missionary Society in South Africa, reference being made to the labours of Drs. Vanderkemp and Philip, and other pioneer missionaries who preceded Mr. Moffat. <br> The volume gives a valuable account of mission work among the Bechuanas, with notes on the customs of the natives, and a description of the earlier travels of the author and some information is afforded respecting the reformed savage Namaqua chief &#147;Afrikaner&#148;. The appearance in Cape Town of this convert was the cause of much wonder and astonishment, his arrival having been awaited with considerable skepticism by Lord Charles Somerset, who was much struck with this example of the results of missionary enterprise, and who "expressed his pleasure at seeing thus before him one who had been the scourge of the country and the terror of the border colonists." <br> An interesting account of Moselekatse and his people is given, and it is remarked that this well-known potentate "seemed anxious to please and to exhibit himself and his people to the best advantage." There was, however, considerable difficulty m ascertaining the chief&#39;s real character, as no one in his dominions "dared breathe a syllable that was not calculated to set him forth as the best and noblest of beings, immaculate in his actions, the very perfection of all that was lovely just, and good.&#39;&#39; He was very gracious to the missionaries, and appreciated their previous kindness to his envoys, and Moffat gained considerable influence over him, and was instrumental in obtaining his permission to allow a mission station to be established in his country. <br> There are some particulars concerning Dr. Andrew Smith&#39;s expedition into the interior in I835, and there is an ample account of the labors of the various missionary societies engaged amongst the Bechuanas, Matabeles, Basutos, and other races at this period. A highly important and unusually scarce book in the core collection of the early exploration and settlement of Africa.

        Church of St. Helena, Bethlehem.

      Moon, F.G., London 1842 - The Prints of David Roberts:Part 1 - The PrinterLouis Haghe (1806-1885) was one of the msot skillful exponents of the tinted lithograph who became a leading reproductive lithographer in England and on the Continent. Haghe's reputation as a lithographer was primarily based upon topographical views, of which Twyman notes "his most important work of this kind, the translation of Roberts' sketches of the Holy Land, represents the culmination of his art".Part 2 - The Publication of Roberts' Holy Land and EgyptRoberts first sketched in his journals "on the spot" the vaious subjects which, on returning to London, he transcribed into finished paintings and watercolors. These then formed the basis of the lithographs drawn and printed by Louis Haghe. It is interesting to note that in some instances Roberts' original drawings were twice or three times the size of the published print, which indicated the skill of Haghe and his assistants in transferring Roberts' designs onto lithographic stones.Part 3 - A Genesis of Roberts' PrintsDavid Roberts fulfilled a boyhood dream by visiting the East and recording what he saw there; by August 1838 he had resolved to "visit the Holy Land, and make drawings of the scenes of sacred history and the antiquities of Egypt". By this time Roberts had already established himself as a successful topographical artist and published his set of Spanish scenery as tinted lithographs, Picturesque Sketches in Spain, 1837. Eventually he would be elected to the prestigious Royal Academy on the strength of his topographical paintings.Part 4 - The PlatesRoberts' Holy Land and Egypt project has been called "the most ambitious work ever published in England with lithographic plates" (according to Micheal Twyman). Its production involved over 600 lithographic stones used over an eight to nine year period. It is generally agreed the lithographers Day & Haghe were the most efficient for such large scale work, while Louis Haghe himself was a master lithographer.The plate formats strongly influenced their presentation as prints: large full-page and small half-page vignettes representing what Roberts intended to be the difference between finished drawings and sketches. roberts was a good judge of accurate transposition of his watercolors and sketches into lithography.Today historians regard Roberts' Holy Land and Egypt as the last link between the established artist and topographical lithography. Since Roberts' prints were the most costly publishing venture in Britain at the time, undertaken by a publisher "on his own responsibility", Roberts sighed on its completion: " . thank God . that with being blessed with health and backed by my ever esteemed friend Louis Haghe I may also say the most satisfactory."References:Micheal Twyman, Lithography, 1800-1850, London, 1970Katherine Sim, David Roberts, London 1984J.R.

        Sarepta

      London 1842 - David Roberts (1796-1864) was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, and at the age of ten began an apprenticeship under house painter and decorator, Gavin Beugo. From there he went on to theater stage painting throughout the United Kingdom and then devoted himself to becoming an artist. In August 1838, Roberts traveled to Egypt with a plan to produce drawings to be later turned into paintings and lithographs. He was one of the first to have been granted the privilege of freely roaming and entering many sacred areas from the extremity of Nubia to the Mediterranean, and his images were therefore the first exposure that Europeans had to such splendid, distant places. His work is meticulously precise and yet splendidly evocative, with a skillful and rigid adherence to the truth of costume, detail and effect. Roberts set off on his great and hazardous expedition in August, 1838. In the next eleven months, he visited cities and sites throughout Egypt, Syria, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, and other Near Eastern countries. The result of Roberts's voyage was the three-volume, color-plate book &#147;The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt & Nubia&#148;. When it was published in England several years after his journey, Roberts's &#147;The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt & Nubia&#148; drew extraordinary acclaim. His ambitious project gave views of spectacular landscapes and ancient man-made wonders that viewers had never glimpsed, but Roberts did not confine his renderings to architecture and natural terrain alone. Roberts gave equal attention to the costumes and lifestyles of the Near Eastern peoples. In this way these images both instructed and delighted their viewers with superb ethnological descriptions, sweeping panoramic landscapes, and detailed architectural studies. Because of the unparalleled significance of his groundbreaking work, he was honored with the prestigious award of election to the Royal Academy. This superb tinted lithograph with hand-coloring, Sarepta, from "The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt, Nubia" measures 15" x 16.75" and is in mint condition. Sarepta was a Phoenician city on the Mediterranean coast, in modern-day Lebanon. Illustrated are a small group of men resting from their travels and a large mountain range receding in the distance. Inscribed on the image is "Sarepta, April 27th 1834."

        The Encyclopedia of Ornament

      London: William Pickering, 1842. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Book. 4to - over 9¾. 6 pp., plus 59 mostly color plates, including title page, in important work to Gothic Revival which was then sweeping England and elsewhere. Shaw published this and other works that stoked and slaked interest in the movement whose roots can be traced to the Romantic Movement that took hold in the late eighteenth century. Shaw, in his meticulous rendering of Gothic ornamentation as expressed in various forms and objects anticipated the majesterial comprehensive works on ornament to come by Owen Jones, Racinet and others. This book can be enjoyed for both the intrinsic beauty of its plates and for its systematic presentation of form. Condition is VG. Plain cloth binding is tight. Some light foxing and toning on some plates, but fortunately, the more brilliant and exciting plates tend to be less afflicted by these issues.

        ANTICHE OPERE IN PLASTICA. Discoperte, raccolte e dichiarate da Gio. Pietro Campana, Romano. Roma, dalla tipografia Salviucci, 1842.

      In folio (cm. 48,0) frontespizio con grande vignetta impressa + tav.A + LXVII tavv. Lievi fioriture sui margini bianchi di qualche carta, altrimenti fresco e ben conservato esemplare. Mz. pelle coeva con tit. in oro al dorso, ma con sbucciature e mancanze. Br. orig. illustrata, conservata. Rara prima edizione di questo superbo catalogo illustrante l'importante collezione di terracotte e bassorilievi formata dal marchese Campana nella prima metà del XIX secolo. La seconda edizione è del 1851 in due voll. per un totale di 120 tavv. contro le 68 del nostro esemplare, che dunque potrebbe essere uno dei due voll. costituenti la prima edizione. Non possiamo esserne certi nella misura in cui la bibliografia consultata riferisce solo della seconda edizione ( Rossetti, 1476; manca ad Olschki, Choix, Graesse, etc.). Impresso sulla brochure originale compare la dicitura "Distribuzione" seguita dal numero 9 manoscritto. Potrebbe trattarsi della tiratura ovvero di una dicitura legata ad una pubblicazione per dispense, magari in sottoscrizione, ma non azzardiamo alcuna conclusione a riguardo.

        Histoire de Joseph, accompagneée de dix figures, rélatives aux principaux evenemens de la fils de ce fils du patriarche Jacob, et gravées sur les modèles du fameux Reimbrandt.Amsterdam, Jean Neaulme, 1757. Folio. With title-page printed in red and black, and 10 full-page etched plates. Contemporary boards.

      Cohen-de Ricci 210; STCN (4 copies); for Caylus: Lugt, Marques des Collections 2919. First and only edition of this children's book, beautifully illustrating the biblical story of Joseph and intended "as much for the improvement of morals as for the principles of drawing", as the title-page notes. Anne-Claude-Philippe comte de Caylus aimed to inspire his readers with a love of virtue and an appreciation of Rembrandt's masterly and evocative drawings. The original drawings have been in the Louvre since 1842, but they have lost their attribution to Rembrandt and are now sometimes ascribed to Rembrandt's pupil Gerbrand van den Eeckhout. The first recorded owner of the drawings was the painter Charles-Antoine Joseph Coypel, an acquaintance of the author.The title-page has a cancel slip correcting "De l'Academie Francoise" to "Honoraire de l'Académie des Inscriptions & des Belles-lettres".Owner's inscription on pastedown, binding chafed, spine damaged. Otherwise in good condition. A fine series of 10 etchings.

        Letters from Hofwyl by a Parent, on the Educational Institutions of De Fellenberg. With An Appendix, Containing Woodbridge's Sketches of Hofwyl, Reprinted from the Annals of Education.

      London: Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans 1842. - Louisa Mary Barwell (1800-1885) was the daughter of inventor and writer on music, Richard Mackenzie Bacon (1776-1844), and from the age of eighteen, she was associated with her father in the editorship of the Quarterly Musical Magazine and Review (1818-1830). After her marriage to wine merchant John Barwell, she turned her attention to the composition of educational works, contributing regularly to the Quarterly Journal of Education and the New Monthly Magazine. She was particularly known for her writings on music education. The Barwells became friends with Philipp Emmanuel von Fellenberg and enrolled their sons at his school in Switzerland. Later her husband, who shared her interest in education, was instrumental in securing the success of a scheme by which a charity day school for girls in Norwich was converted into an industrial training school for girls. Louisa Barwell also wrote books for children, including Little Lessons for Little Learners (1833) and Pleasant Stories in Simple Language (1850). Her popular book, Childhood's Hours (1851), was used in the royal nursery by Queen Victoria's children. (See Oxford DNB). Octavo. xii, 372 + 32 pp. publisher's catalogue.
