        Deutsche Staats- und Rechtsgeschichte.

      Göttingen, bei Vandenhoeck und Ruprecht, 1843-44.. 5., verbesserte (letzte!) Ausgabe. 4 Bde. 8vo. (I:) XXVIII, 773; (II:) XVI, 725; (III:) XVI, 514; (IV:) XVIII, 786 S. Originale zeitgenössische Halblederbände mit Goldrückenprägung. (Bd. 3 versehentlich mit 2 geprägt).. Stolleis 188f. - Eichhorn (1781-1854) gilt mit vorliegendem Werk als "Vater der deutschen Rechtsgeschichte". Er war seit 1805 Prof. in Frankfurt an der Oder, seit 1811 an der neugegründeten Berliner Universität, seit 1817 in Göttingen. Er wurde nach Berlin als Vertreter des deutschen Rechts berufen, neben Savigny, der das Römische Recht vertreten sollte. Mit dem seiner "Deutschen Staats- und Rechtsgeschichte" gilt Eichhorn als Begründer des germanistischen Zweigs der Historischen Rechtsschule. Das Werk wurde zum Prototyp einer ganzen Lehrbuchtradition, in der die Anordnung des Stoffs "von der Verfassungsgeschichte bis zu den Rechtsquellen reichenden Entwicklungsgeschichte des 'deutschen' (d. h. nichtrömischen) Rechts einerseits und der systematisch-dogmatisch geordneten Darstellung ebendiese (Privat-)Rechts andererseits" reicht (vgl. G. Dilcher in: Stolleis 188/189).

Haghe ont fait la renommée de cette édition. In 1838 Roberts made a long tour in the East, and accumulated a vast collection of sketches of Middle Eastern scenery which had been hardly touched by British artists before, and which appealed to the public with all the charm of novelty.

He ended his tour by spending several months visiting the biblical sites of the Holy Land, and finally returning to England at the end of 1839.

Stroobant. folio Vues & monuments, title and 60 tinted lithographed plates (30 full page and 30 half page).

        THE WAR IN CHINA. Narrative or the chinese expedition from its formation in april, 1840, to the treaty of peace in august, 1842.

      1843 - London, Saunders and Otley, 1843. In-8 (150 X 225) demi-veau havane, dos lisse orné de guirlandes et filets dorés en place des nerfs, fleuron doré dans les compartiments, dentelles en queue et tête, pièce de titre veau vert lierre, tête dorée (reliure de l'époque); portrait frontispice, XIV pages de faux-titre, titre, dédicace, préfaces et table, une carte, 280 pages, une gravure hors-texte. TROISIÈME ÉDITION. Elle est ornée en frontispice d'un BEAU PORTRAIT COLORIÉ de l'auteur en costume traditionnel chinois, signé et daté «P.J. Bullock, February 21st 1843», d'une CARTE des côtes de la Chine et d'une vue à fond teinté représentant le port de Chuck-Pie-Wan à Hong-Kong. La première édition a paru en 1842. «Deux articles de Mc Pherson qui avaient parus dans "The Chinese Repository" sont compris dans ce volume» (Cordier). L'EXPÉDITION DE LA GUERRE DE L'OPIUM : Duncan MAC PHERSON (mort en 1867) servit comme chirurgien dans le 37ème régiment de grenadiers en Chine, et fut sévèrement blessé à la bataille de Chuenpe, durant la campagne militaire qui le mena pendant deux ans à travers la Chine, à l'occasion de la première guerre de l'opium. Ce conflit militaire, motivé par des raisons commerciales, entre le Royaume-Uni et l'empire Qing en Chine, est considéré comme la première manifestation du déclin de l'Empire en Chine, incapable de résister à l'Occident, déclin qui entraînera la Chine dans une longue période d'instabilité, jalonnée par la chute du système impérial. EXEMPLAIRE D'ALBERT D'AMADE (Toulouse, 1856-1941, Fronsac), avec sa signature autographe à l'encre noire sur le faux-titre. Général français formé à Saint-Cyr, il participe à la campagne de Tunisie en 1881 au sein du 3e régiment de tirailleurs algériens avant de rejoindre le 108e régiment d'infanterie au Tonkin en 1885 en tant qu'officier d'ordonnance du général Munier. Il est ensuite affecté à l'état-major de la 2e brigade de la division d'occupation du Tonkin et de l'Annam. Lors de la campagne du Tonkin, le jeune capitaine se passionne pour les problématiques de l'Extrême-Orient. De cet intérêt découle certainement sa nomination en Chine, en 1887, lorsqu'il rejoint la représentation diplomatique de la France à Tien-Tsin en tant qu'attaché militaire. Cinquième officier à être nommé à ce poste depuis 1870, Albert d'Amade séjourne en Chine pendant quatre années (1887-1891), au cours desquelles il se révèle un talentueux observateur, doublé d'un photographe accompli. Espion officiel au service de la France, Albert d'Amade incarne le parfait gentleman, séduisant par son tact et son intelligence, ses interlocuteurs. Sa connaissance du mandarin s'avère un atout de premier ordre qui participe au succès de ses trois grands voyages d'étude et de reconnaissance en Chine : la région de Pékin et la Mandchourie au cours de l'hiver 1888, les provinces méridionales du Yunnan et du Guangxi entre octobre 1888 et mai 1889, la Corée en 1890. Au retour de ces missions, il expédie de copieux rapports agrémentés de cartes et de photographies de sa main au 2e Bureau de l'État-major, à Paris, qui forceront l'admiration de ses supérieurs : « Grâce à sa connaissance approfondie des moeurs et des coutumes chinoises et aussi de son grand tact, il s'est parfaitement acquitté de cette mission à la suite de laquelle il a rédigé un rapport fort intéressant. [.] C'est un officier supérieur d'un très grand mérite, ayant un jugement très sûr et qui ne ménage ni son temps ni sa peine ». (Lucie Moriceau). BEL EXEMPLAIRE dans un élégant pastiche de reliure romantique. [Cordier, Bibliotheca Sinica, n°2369 - Lucie Moriceau, "Les carnets de voyage du général d'Amade, officier photographe (1887-1915)", ECPAD]. NICE COPY. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST.

      Richard Bentley, 1843-01-01. Richard Bentley, 1843-01-01. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Later 19th-century 1/2 leather binding. Solid binding and cover. A few scuffs. xii, 463, [1] pages. 8vo. Large folding lithographed map in front. Small closed tears at base of map. Volume 4 of &#39;Narratives of Various Journeys in Balochistan, Afghanistan and the Panjab including Residence in Those Countries from 1826-1838. <br><br> James Lewis&#39;s account of his journey through Afghanistan and Pakistan. Lewis wrote under the pseudonym, Charles Masson. In this classic travel account of Balochistan, (far Western Pakistan), Lewis gives a first-hand analysis of the political events, his personal experiences there, the manners, history, and customs of the peoples and tribes. Lewis served as a British East India Company soldier and explorer. He deserted his regiment at Agra in 1827 and assumed the name Charles Masson. Lewis (now Masson) wandered the region and was explored much of Afghanistan, Persia and Pakistan. Masson served in a variety of posts for the British East India Company and British government, while continuing his ground breaking archeological work. Masson was involved in much of the turmoil in Afghanistan and Balochistan. In 1840 he was imprisoned by the British Political Agent, Lieutenant Loveday at Kalat and later used as a rebel messenger at Quetta. He was arrested as a traitor and spy by the British in Quetta but released in 1841. His admonition against the policies of the East India Company in Afghanistan appeared to be proven true after the disastrous British losses in the first Anglo-Afghan war. An important account.

No example of this mysterious original has ever been unearthed; no trace of it beyond Rodd's own statement has ever been discovered; and no mention of any kind either of its printing or distribution is to be found in the correspondence of Shelley or any of his friends.

        Fackelzug von ca. 150 Mitgliedern des Corps durch die Münchner Innenstadt am 5. Juni 1882, im Hintergrund die Frauentürme.

      . Ölbild von Cajetan Schweitzer, dat."5. VI. (18)82", 34 x 41 cm.. Der Fackelzug fand statt zum Gedenken an das verstorbene Copsmitglied cand. med. Heinzelmann.

        The Bible in Spain; Or, The Journeys, Adventures, and Imprisonments of an Englishman, in an Attempt to Circulate the Scriptures in the Peninsula

      Philadelphia - James M. Campbell, 1843. Philadelphia - James M. Campbell, 1843 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A first edition of Borrow&#39;s extremely popular guide to Spain, in a fine binding. First Edition. The Bible in Spain is the most famous work of George Borrow (1803-1881). It wasextremely popularand ran through several editions, even outselling Charles Dickens&#39; A Christmas Carol (1843). The work is unique among contemporary books describing Spain because it relates numerous unusual personal encounters Borrow had with Spaniards, from the prime minister to beggars, and frequent encounters with gypsies. This was the first widely-read book with accurate first-hand information on gypsies (though a more complete description is found in his first work The Zincal (1841), which was not a commercial success). All this took place during the Carlist Civil War, during which time few foreign people traveled in Spain. Condition: In a half calf binding with marbled boards. Externally, smart with just some shelfwear and fading to the spine. Internally, firmly bound. Light foxing throughout. Offsetting to several pages. Some tidemarks to the lower margins of the pages. Faint signature to titlepage. Small tears to fore-edge of p. 181, not affecting the text. Overall: VERY GOOD..
