Quarter morocco and marbled board with the moderately soiled original printed wrappers, bound-in. A fine and bright copy. Marc Antoine Augustin Gaudin (1804 - 1880) a skilled French chemist and an early practitioner of the daguerreian process, joined with Noël-Paymal Lerebours (1807 - 1873) an optician and instrument maker, to published this work on an improved daguerreian process: one that made possible shorter exposures and would allow for portraiture. Lerebours lenses and cameras were among the first commercially marketed; it was before the end of 1839 that Lerebours had constructed a large daguerreotype camera, which produced pictures of 12 x 15 (French) inches.

        DESCRIPTION ET USAGE DE DAGUERRÉOTYPE A PORTRAITS

      Paris: Chez Buron, Ingénieur - Opticien, 1842. First edition. 12mo., 24 pp., 1 engraved plate. Original printed wrappers which show modest staining on the rear, else a fine copy, housed in a paper over boards pamphlet case with printed paper labels. Little seems to be known of Buron; he maintained a business as an optician and engineer on the rue des Trois-Pavillons, Paris. In the early 1840s, portraiture was of a very low quality, given the lenses available which were more suited to landscape photography than portraiture; the lenses needed to be faster and with less distortion for a close subject. In the spring of 1840, the Société d'Encouragement pour l'Industrie Nationale, announced a competition to encourage improvements in the photographic lenses. Among the award winners was Buron, who received a bronze medal for his ingenious portable camera and darkroon, all contained in a single box, weighing approximately 8 1/4 pounds. Two lenses could be used with this camera: one for portraiture and one for landscape. See Gernsheim p. 117. This pamphlet is a manual for making Daguerreotypes; the engraved plate illustrates Buron's portable camera / darkroom. WorldCat locates a single copy at Universiteit Leiden. Roosens and Salu No. 2824. Bellier de la Chavignerie, Manuel Bibliographie du Photographe Francais, 1863, No. 14.

        Catalogue of a Collection of Minerals and Geological Specimens.

      December 1842 - manuscript in ink on paper, 28 leaves, 4to, written on rectos only, a few corrections in ink and pencil, original black paper wrappers, upper fore-edge frayed and spine partly defective, [together with:] a wooden sample tray with some 60 odd samples of minerals, most with tiny printed numbered labels (numbers corresponding to the Catalogue), either loose or in small sample bottle sealed with corks, Listed are 442 items in various categories, usually with a note of the origin of the sample - mainly the British Isles, but also from all over the world - with the occasional note about a particular sample. We are slightly vague about the number since some are fragments only (perhaps broken off). Some 43 are loose, and 13 in tiny sample bottles (there are also 4 empty bottles and 3 loose corks). This is an early example of a Tennant Catalogue. James Tennant, (1808–1881), was 'in October 1824 apprenticed as shop assistant to John Mawe, mineral dealer, of 149 Strand, London. Mawe had been a great traveller and his shop was a resort for men of science from all over the world. Here Tennant gained his acquaintance with minerals. Mawe also sold turned ornamental marbles worked in Derbyshire, business which Tennant continued after Mawe's death.Tennant attended lectures at his mechanics' institute and, later, those given by Michael Faraday at the Royal Institution. Faraday was a Mawe customer; he bought minerals there for use in his experiments. When Mawe died in 1829 his widow, Sarah, maintained the business, with Tennant now as resident manager. In 1838 Tennant was elected a fellow of the Geological Society, and was appointed to assist John Phillips (1800–1874) as lecturer in geological mineralogy at King's College, London, on Faraday's recommendation. 'His class here [became] the largest in the kingdom' (ILN, 12 March 1881). Sarah Mawe had been created mineralogist to Queen Victoria on her accession. In February 1840 Tennant purchased the Mawe business and, on 15 October 1840, he inherited this title. The business lay only three doors from Somerset House, home of the Geological Society of London from 1828 to 1860, which helped to extend his circle of customers. By 1844 Tennant's shop was already"'too well known to require comment" (G. A. Mantell, Medals of Creation, 2.987)' (ODNB). According to the Mineralogical Record, 'although the range of material he offered was notable, he was not an important supplier of individual specimen minerals. Boxed educational sets comprise most of the known Tennant minerals today, the more expensive ones containing excellent specimens. Individually labeled Tennant minerals are very rare, as are Tennant labels in general. A list of the labeled minerals is available on request.

Thomas Frognall Dibdin, English bibliographer, born at Calcutta, was the son of Thomas Dibdin, the sailor brother of Charles Dibdin. Dibdin was orphaned at a young age. His father died in 1778 while returning to England and his mother died one of the following two years, and an elderly maternal aunt eventually assumed responsibility for Dibdin. He was educated at St John's College, Oxford, and studied for a time at Lincoln's Inn. After an unsuccessful attempt to obtain practice as a provincial counsel at Worcester, he was ordained a clergyman at the close of 1804, being appointed to a curacy at Kensington. It was not until 1823 that he received the living of Exning in Sussex. Soon afterwards he was appointed by Lord Liverpool to the rectory of St Mary's, Bryanston Square, which he held until his death. The first of his numerous bibliographical works was his "Introduction to the Knowledge of Editions of the Classics" (1802) , which brought him under the notice of the second Earl Spencer, to whom he owed much important aid in his bibliographical pursuits. The rich library at Althorp was thrown open to him; he spent much of his time in it, and in 1814-1815 published his "Bibliotheca Spenceriana." As the library was not open to the general public, the information given in the Bibliotheca was found very useful, but since its author was unable even to read the characters in which the books he described were written, the work was marred by the errors which more or less characterize all his productions. This fault of inaccuracy however was less obtrusive in his series of playful, discursive works in the form of dialogues on his favourite subject, the first of which, "Bibliomania" (1809) , was republished with large additions in 1811, and was very popular, passing through numerous editions. To the same class belonged the "Bibliographical Decameron," a larger work, which appeared in 1817. In 1810 he began the publication of a new and much extended edition of "Ames's Typographical Antiquities." The first volume was a great success, but the publication was checked by the failure of the fourth volume, and was never completed. In 1818 Dibdin was commissioned by Earl Spencer to purchase books for him on the continent, an expedition described in his sumptuous "Bibliographical, Antiquarian and Picturesque Tour in France and Germany" (1821). In 1824 he made an ambitious venture in his "The Library Companion, or the Young Man's Guide and Old Man's Comfort in the Choice of a Library," intended to point out the best works in all departments of literature. His culture was not broad enough, however, to render him competent for the task, and the work was severely criticized. For some years Dibdin gave himself up chiefly to religious literature. He returned to bibliography in his "Bibliophobia, or Remarks on the Present Depression in the State of Literature and the Book Trade" (1832) , and the same subject furnishes the main interest of his "Reminiscences of a Literary Life" (1836) , and his "Bibliographical, Antiquarian and Picturesque Tour in the Northern Counties of England and Scotland" (1838). Dibdin was the originator and vice-president, Earl Spencer being the president, of the Roxburghe Club, founded in 1812, the first "book club." ; 0 .

        The Spirit of the Nation or, Ballads and Songs by The Writers of "The Nation" with Original and Ancient Music, arranged for the Voice and Pianoforte.

      New Edition, with preface and Introduction by W.H.Grattan Flood. Quarto. XXII, 368 pages - including the often missing Corrigenda Leaf (Errata). Original, illustrated Hardcover. Beautifully illustrated clothbinding that has been recently professionally restored. All edges gilt. New endpapers. Besides a 6 cm smudged repair to the front board in excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear. A very rare and sought after publication. The Nation was an Irish nationalist weekly newspaper, published in the 19th century. The Nation was printed first at 12 Trinity Street, Dublin from 15 October 1842 until 6 January 1844. The paper was afterwards published at 4 D'Olier Street from 13 July 1844, to 28 July 1848, when the issue for the following day was seized and the paper suppressed. It was published again in Middle Abbey Street on its revival in September 1849. The founders of The Nation were three young men two Catholics and one Protestant who, according to the historian of the newspaper T. F. O'Sullivan, were all "free from the slightest taint of bigotry, and were anxious to unite all creeds and classes for the country's welfare.". They were Charles Gavan Duffy, its first editor Thomas Davis, and John Blake Dillon. All three were members of Daniel O'Connell's Repeal Association, which sought repeal of the disastrous 1800 Act of Union between Ireland and Britain this association would later be known as Young Ireland.The name suggested by Duffy for the paper was The National, but Davis disagreed, suggesting "that the use of an adjective for such a purpose was contrary to the analogies of the English language". He suggested The Nation, which was assented to by all three.. "We desired to make Ireland a nation," Duffy wrote, "and the name would be a fitting prelude to the attempt.". In due course and after many other consultations between the founders, the following announcement was made as to the date of publication, the name of the journal, and the contributors:.On the first Saturday in October will be published the first number of a DUBLIN WEEKLY JOURNAL TO BE CALLED THE NATION, for which the services of the most eminent political writers in the country have been secured. It will be edited by Charles Gavan Duffy, Editor of The Vindicator, aided by the, following distinguished contributors: JOHN O'CONNELL, ESQ., M.P. Thomas Osborne Davis, Esq., Barrister-at-Law W. J. O'Neill Daunt, Esq., Author of The Green Book, John B. Dillon, Esq., Barrister-at-Law Clarence Mangan, Esq., Author of Anthologia Germanica and Litterae Orientales The Late Editor of the London Magazine and Charivari, J. C. Fitzgerald, Editor of The True Sun, And others whose names we are not at liberty to publish. The paper was first published on Saturday 15th October 1842. (Wikipedia)

Vicino alla teorie di Mengs e Winckelmann, Canova fu il più celebre scultore del suo tempo tanto che gli commissionarono opere gli Asburgo, i Borbone, la corte pontificia, Napoleone, sino ad arrivare dalla nobiltà veneta, romana e russa. Il volume qui presentato è di notevole importanza per ricostruire la genesi artistica dell’opera di Canova. Ogni magnifica tavola è seguita da una descrizione e commento dell’opera ad opera del noto poeta, prosatore e giornalista Domanico Anzelmo (1803-1890). Le tavole sono di altissimo livello incise su carta di ottima qualità da Revel su disegno di Canova. Molti esemplari dell’opera presentano fioriture, per fortuna, assenti dalla nostra copia. Prima edizione in ottime condizioni di conservazione.

        Polled Angus Breed

      London: [Wilson & Ogilvie for] Longman, Orme, Brown, Green, and Longmans, 1842. Hand-coloured lithograph by Fairland from a drawing by William Nicholson, after a painting by William Shiels. Very good condition. A beautiful and carefully observed portrait of one of the most historically important breeds of cow, from David Low's "The Breeds of the Domestic Animals of the British Islands," a famous pioneering work illustrating the forerunners of all of today's most important breeds of horses, cows, sheep and pigs. David Low, professor of Agriculture at Edinburgh University, produced these beautiful lithographs as a reference for those interested in the infant science of selective breeding. He was concerned that the majority of farmers or breeders did not understand the relatively simple concept of matching a breed to its environment to improve its productivity. With the help of a government grant from Earl Spencer, Low set up the agricultural museum in Edinburgh. The artist William Shiels of the Royal Scottish Academy was commissioned to produce a series of paintings of all the significant breeds of economic significance in Great Britain at the time. These paintings were then used as the basis for Low's important work. Cf. BM(NH) III, p.1184; cf. Mellon, Books on the Horse and Horsemanship, 168; cf. Nissen, ZBI, 2564; cf. Wood, p.442.

        Group of 15 documents (see below for details).

      Various publishers, 1842. The culture and politics of central Mexico in the 19th century often did not coincide with those of the Yucatan, especially after the dissolution of the constitution of the First Empire. The long-smoldering discontent that the post-Empire constitutions engendered reached the breaking point for the Yucatecans in March of 1841 and on the 16th of that month => the peninsula declared its independence from the rest of Mexico. The Yucatecans were perhaps encouraged by the Tejanos and their successful separation from Mexico in 1836. The four manuscript documents, two broadsides, and nine newspapers in this collection date from the period of the first Mexican invasion of the peninsula and the central government's failed attempt to quell what it saw as a rebellion -- an invasion that was not repelled until April, 1843. Included here are: 1) A pair of letters dated Merida 17 and 24 January 1843, from Juan de Regil to Mauricio de Santelices of Havana regarding the political situation. 2) A printed broadside proclamation by President Miguel Barbachano (Mérida, 2 December 1842), imposing a heavy tax on and forced loans from the nation's industrialists, merchants, and professionals. 3) A manuscript extract from a letter (Merida, 21 December 1842) from an unknown Spanish national to Santelices, requesting assistance in leaving Yucatan due to the oppressive new tax, but also giving first-hand information about => military operations. 4) An Autograph Letter Signed, Campeche, 17 February 1843, from Geronimo Ferrer y Valls (Spanish commercial agent in Yucatan) to the Captain General of Cuba in Havana, expressing concern for the safety of Spanish nationals in the Yucatan and containing details of => murders and summary military executions. 5) A printed broadside entitled Opinion General, Verdaderas ideas y convicciones de las secciones del ejército del Estado acampadas extramuros de esta Ciudad (Campeche: José M. Peralta, 1843). And, 6) Nine issues of the Boletin del Espiritu del Siglo dated January to June 1843, most with => excellent content on Yucatecan resistance to the invasion by Mexico. The Boletin del Espiritu del Siglo (published in Campeche by Jose Maria Peralta) is quite scarce, with only Yale reporting ownership of a very good but incomplete run. Present here are issues from 1843: 43 (7 January), 46 (13 January), 48 (15 January), 52 (19 January), 53 (20 January), 63 (30 January), 144 (22 April), 148 (26 April), and 189 (6 June). => Primary source material on the Republic of the Yucatan is rare.

        View of Bethlehem (Pennsylvania)

      Paris, Coblenz and London, 1842. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Lucas Weber after Bodmer, blindstamp. Provenance: Donaldson, Lufkin &Jenrette Americana CollectionA pastoral landscape scene of great serenity: the wheat has been cut and the stubble has yet to be ploughed in, the farming community takes a momentary rest from their labours. Another harvest safely gathered in. In the early-morning sun few people are around as Bodmer completes his sketch. After a day long journey Bodmer and Prince Maximilian had arrived on the evening of July 25 1832 at Bethlehem, a settlement of Moravians established in 1740 on the Lehigh River. Whilst the Prince toured the district with a German physician, Lewis Saynisch, Bodmer occupied himself by sketching the town and the surrounding countryside. This is the view from one of the highest points in Bethlehem, The buildings in the view still stand.Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. They arrived in Boston in July 1832, traveled on to Philadelphia, where they stayed with Napoleon Bonaparte's elder brother Joseph. From here they headed west across Pennsylvania across the Alleghenies to Pittsburgh and the Ohio country, visiting all the important German settlements en route. Their most important stop on their route west was at the utopian colony of New Harmony in Indiana. The Prince spent five months there in the company of some of the country's leading scientific men, and studying all the relevant literature on backcountry America. On 24 March 1833 the party reached St. Louis, Missouri, and the start of the journey into Indian country.Graff 4648; Howes M443a; Pilling 2521; Sabin 47014; Wagner-Camp 76:1.

        Großes Wiener Affentheater. Zwei ausserordentlich große Vorstellungen von bewunderungswürdigen Fertigkeits-Uebungen, in Kunstreiten, Voltigiren, Seiltänzen mit und ohne Balancirstange, künstlichen Wendungen und höchst komischen Scenen durch Affen und Hunde auszuführen. (Unterzeichner:) Heinrich Schreyer.

      (München), 26. und 27. Juli 1842. - Einblattdruck mit gr. Holzschnitt (17 x 36 cm). Blattgr.: 56 x 39 cm. Wurzbach XXXI, 305: "Heinrich Schreyer, Menageriebesitzer und Thierhändler, war aus Lemberg in Galizien gebürtig (geb. 1793, gest. zu Wien 22. August 1847). Im Sommer 1847 kam er nach Wien, wo er im Prater das große Affentheater erbaute, welches er im Juni d. J. eröffnete. Der Zulauf zu dieser Sehenswürdigkeit - die Dressur der Hunde und Affen war psychologisch merkwürdig - war ein ungeheurer. In wenigen Wochen hatte S. einen Gewinn von über 20.000 fl. erzielt. Aber mit diesem Glücke seines Unternehmens schritt das Unglück in seiner Familie Hand in Hand. Kaum in Wien angekommen, erkrankten Frau und Kinder am Typhus. Kaum waren aber diese genesen, wurde er selbst von der Seuche hingerafft. Das Theater führte nun die Witwe fort. Später übernahm das Ganze Casanova, der in Schreyer’s Diensten gestanden und der nun einige Zeit noch in Wien Vorstellungen gab. Im Jahre 1861 brachte der damalige Volkssänger Fürst die Bude käuflich an sich, gestaltete sie um und eröffnete sie am 21. April 1862 als Singspielhalle, aus welcher das Volkstheater im Prater und zuletzt das „Fürst-Theater" sich entwickelte. Anregend im Hinblick auf Abrichtung der Thiere, wirkte die Schreyer’sche Affenbude auf die Bevölkerung ganz anders, wie der Cancan der Fürst’schen Bühne! Noch sei bemerkt, daß Schreyer während seines kurzen Aufenthaltes in Wien im Jahre 1847 dem im genannten Jahre errichteten Affenhause in der Schönbrunner Menagerie die erste Affenbevölkerung lieferte."

        The Constitution of the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, as Adopted by the Convention, Assembled at Newport, September 1842; bound together with A Discourse Delivered Before the Rhode-Island Historical Society, on the Evening of Wednesday, January 13, 1847 By Hon. Job Durfee

      Providence, 1842. Hardcover. Very Good. Hardcover. SCARCE. The first document is the text of the newly adopted state constitution, the state's first. From 1663 until 1842, the state was governed under the original charter granted to it by King Charles II. After rancorous debate in 1841-1842 over universal suffrage, which included the brief Dorr rebellion, the Freeman's Constitution was passed by the electorate. Both documents are in very good condition save for some occasional light foxing and aging to pages, and a 3 inch tear to the margin of the last page of the first one, not affecting the text. The second document is a discourse delivered in 1847 by Job Durfee, the Chief Justice of Rhode Island and a prominent figure in the state's government and politics. In this discourse the Judge provides a proud history of the state and praises it "extravagantly." Along with the discourse, the document appends a poem by Providence writer Sarah Helen Whitman that was recited to the Society before the Judge's discourse. Whitman is now perhaps best known for having been romantically involved with Edgar Allan Poe during the couple of years before his death. Their relationship developed after having composed poems to each other. The two documents are bound in a very good red leather binding with gilt ruling along edges and gilt titles to front cover. The front hinge is cracked, and there are light ink marks along the gutter between the first and second documents. 24 pages; 42 pages plus 5 pages AMHIST/072808.
