        Un Autre Monde

      1844. first edition. Grandville?s ?Visions and Nocturnal Transformations? [GRANDVILLE, J.J., illustrator]. [DELORD, Taxile]. Un Autre Monde. Transformations, visions, incarnations, ascensions, locomotions, explorations, pérégrinations, excursions, stations, cosmogonies, fantasmagories, réveries, folatreries, facéties, lubies, métamorphoses, zoomorphoses, lithomorphoses, métempsycoses, apothéoses et autres choses. Paris: H. Fournier, 1844. First edition. Quarto (10 1/8 x 7 1/2 inches; 257 x 191 mm.). [2], 295, [1] pp. Wood-engraved frontispiece and text illustrations (four head-pieces, thirteen tail-pieces, 116 vignettes, and fifteen full-page vignettes) and thirty-six hand-colored wood-engraved plates. Title-page printed in red. Bound without the half-title.Mid twentieth-century half dark green calf over green cloth boards ruled in blind. Spine with five shallow raised bands, decoratively tooled in gilt in compartments, red morocco label lettered in gilt, top edge stained green. Some scattered foxing, mainly to text, the thirty-six hand colored plates bright and fresh. A very good copy.Originally issued in thirty-six parts between February and November 1843. ?In this remarkable book, of the boldest possible originality, Grandville dared to reveal his dream world to the public. He wrote to his publisher: ?What will be the title of these compositions? Transformation? Distortion? Reordering of dreams? Nightmare??Or indeed harmonic metamorphosis during sleep? But?here is the true title?I believe?Visions and nocturnal transformations.? (Quoted by Garcin, p. 26.) His visions take many forms. There are experiments in perspective. In one sequence an optical illusion gives the reader a bird?s-eye view, thus enabling Grandville to show at once a daughter?s love encounter and her father?s unawareness of it (p. 26). In another, humanity is seen as if reflected by distorting mirrors. In ?Psychological Disguises? the upper half of each figure is what appears to the observer, the lower suggests what he or she is in reality: polished gentleman and ruffian, pious woman and lorette. The ?Vegetable Revolution? parodies the French penchant for violence. ?An April Visit? presents the bank of a stream with fish holding out lines to catch men. A trip to the zoo offers monsters as grotesque as any conceived by Bruegel or Bosch; witness the pit of ?doublivores? (p. 112). Still more striking are certain of Granville?s full-page plates, ?peregrinations of a comet? (opposite p. 95), for example, or ?the battle of the cards? (opposite p. 247), which was surely in Tenniel?s remembrance when he made his designs for Alice in Wonderland. Grandville once explained how these visions formed in his mind: ?In my opinion one never dreams of an object of which one has not had sight or the thought when one was awake. And it is the combination of these various objects seen in the mind?s eye often at considerable distances that form the ensembles, so strange and eccentric, of the dream? (quoted by Garcin, p. 28)?

März 1819 die Priesterweihe empfing. 1819 trat Beckx der Ordensgemeinschaft der Gesellschaft Jesu bei. Nach seelsorgerischen Tätigkeiten in Hamburg, Hildesheim und Braunschweig wurde er in Hildesheim Professor für Kirchenrecht. 1830 übersiedelte er nach Wien und wurde von seinem Orden, aber auch vom Heiligen Stuhl, mit wichtigen Missionen in die Lombardei, nach Ungarn und nach Bayern betraut. Im Revolutionsjahr 1848 wurde Beckx mit allen anderen Jesuiten aus Österreich vertrieben. Beckx ging zurück nach Belgien und wurde 1851 Rektor des Kollegs in Löwen. Bald kehrte er jedoch wieder nach Österreich zurück und wurde 1852 zum Superior von Ungarn ernannt und kurze Zeit später zum Provinzial der Provinz Österreich. Als am 8. Mai 1853 der 21. General des Ordens, Joannes Philippus Roothaan starb, wählte die Generalversammlung am 2. Juli 1853 Beckx einstimmig zum 22. General des Ordens. Beckx schaffte es in seiner ca. vierjährigen Amtszeit, die Zahl der Ordensmitglieder mehr als zu verdoppeln. Auch die häufigen Missionen in protestantische Gegenden und der bedeutende Einfluss, welchen der Orden besonders seit Ende der 1850er Jahre gewonnen hatte, waren vornehmlich seiner geschickten Leitung der Ordensangelegenheiten zuzuschreiben. - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius\' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. - Versand D: 12,00 EUR Beckx, Mislin, Jesuiten, Jesuitengeneral, Brief, Letter, Lettre, Briefe, Autograph, Autographe, Autographen, Autograf, Autografe, Autografen, Signatur, Signiert, Signed, Signature, Unterschrift, Eigenhändig, Handschrift, Handschriften, Manuscript, Manuscrit, ALS, A.L.S., LAS, L.A.S.

Hodgson, Printer, April 27, 1844. 14-1/2" x 6-1/2" broadside, woodcut arms of Great Britain at head of text. Light browning and some foxing, light wear, minor nicks and creases to edges, three horizontal fold lines. * This broadside describes an act of Royal clemency granted to a repentant criminal, "from the numerous and respectfully signed Petitions and Memorials." George Lowher and Matthew Pearson were poaching on the Marquis of Normanby's Estate at Mulgrave. They were approached by the Head Game Keeper, John Moffit, who Lowther accidently shot. Pearson was acquitted; Lowther was condemned to death. Due to his behavior and the accidental nature of his crime, his sentence was commuted to Transportation to Australia. He was transported on the Hyderabad with 29 other convicts on 15th October, 1844. The ship arrived in either Van Dieman's Land (Tasmania) or Norfolk Island on 2nd September 1845. The broadside begins with a brief summary of Lowther's crime, trial and communication of his sentence. This section includes the text of Lowther's letter of repentance that Lowther sent to the judge. The second part is a 40-line poem about his self-condemnation. This is a rare item. No copies listed on OCLC or COPAC.

        Journal of the Senate of the Fourteenth General Assembly of the State of Illinois, At Their Regular Session, Begun and Held At Springfield, December 2, 1844 (Containing the Message of the Governor..in Relation to the Disturbances in Hancock County)

      Springfield, IL: Walters & Weber. Very Good. 1844. First Edition. Hardcover. This exceedingly rare Senate Journal contains the original report of Governor Thomas Ford on the events surrounding the murder of Joseph Smith at the Carthage, Illinois jail. Tan cloth boards with red and gilt title label, light soil and rubbed and bumped edges and corners. Hinges reinforced with cloth tape, soil on edges, and light foxing of pages. Joseph Smith surrendered on June 25, 1844 for the charges of destroying the press of an anti-Mormon publication put out by ex-communicated Mormons. Pages 91-110 in this volume are the report of Govern Ford on his visits to Carthage and Nauvoo in the month preceding and on the day of the murders by the mob which killed Smith and his brother Hyrum at the jail on June 27, 1844. Ford recounts the speech he gave that day at Nauvoo. He explains his actions and gives opinions on what had led to such tensions surrounding the Mormon colony of Nauvoo, along with providing his recommendations on the still standing Nauvoo militia. Ford was critcized by both sides for not doing more in the events before and after Smith's death but defended his actions citing the state's limited power in the situation. The report is dated December 23, 1844. The governor's message is rare even in its more common pamphlet edition, and no copies of this Senate Journal are found in auction records or on OCLC. Flake 4195. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall; 469 pp .

Leinenband der Zeit mit linearer Goldprägung und Rückentitel. *Erste Ausgabe in der westlichen Welt und erste Ausgabe in lateinischer Übersetzung. - Garrison & Morton 11 und 6485.93. - Susruta (Sushruta) war ein indischer Chirurg aus dem 6. Jahrhundert vor Christi. Er beschrieb etwa 300 Operationen und 121 Operationsinstrumente. Unter den Operationen, die er beschrieben hat, sind Star, Bruch, Steinschnitt, Kaiserschnitt etc. Instrumente die er beschrieb sind u. a. Sonden, Zangen, Lanzetten, und Katheter. Er übertrug auch Haut von anderen Körperstellen auf ein beschädigtes Ohr und entwickelte die Nasenplastik. Das Buch Susruta Samhita stammt vermutlich aus der Zeit um 350 n. Chr. und geht auf Susruta zurück. Es wurde vor dem Ende des 8. Jahrhunderts ins Arabische übersetzt. Ins Lateinische wurde es erst 1844 von Hessler übersetzt. Der Bauernsohn aus Krumbach in Bayern Franz Hessler (1799-1890) studierte Medizin und orientalische Sprachen in Heidelberg und Erlangen. Er wurde Gerichtsarzt und Bezirksarzt in Bayern nd lebte später als Privatgelehrter. - Die verdienstvolle Übersetzung klassischen Werkes der indischen Medizin in die Lateinische Sprache vollbrachte Hessler in 3 Teilen in den Jahren 1844 bis 1850. Das Werk wurde vermutlich in kleinen Auflage verlegt und ist sehr selten. Später folgten 1852 bis 1855 noch 2 Kommentarbände, die hier nicht vorliegen. - Exemplar aus der ehemaligen Bibliothek des Ophthalmologen Herzog Carl Theodor in Bayern (1839-1909). - Titelblätter und wenige Seiten mit leichter Altersbräunung, insgesamt sehr gut erhalten. / Garrison Morton 6485.93: \"First translation of the Susruta Samhita into Latin, and the first publication of this text in the West. Susruta is said to have lived in the 6th or 5th centuries, BCE. The principal medical contribution of the ancient Hindus was in the field of surgery, and the greatest early Hindu surgeon was Susruta, a quasi-legendary character about whose dates there is some confusion. His collection, or \"Samhita,\" is one of the two foundation works of ancient Indian medicine, the other being the Charaka Samhita, a work devoted to medicine. The Susruta Samhita includes the earliest description of plastic surgery; this is contained in chapter XVI of the first volume, which is devoted to the repair of torn earlobes and damaged noses, and includes the first recorded description of the pedicle flap method, subsequently named the \"Indian\" method. Susruta is also credited with the description of 127 surgical instruments, and his descriptions of the operative techniques for abscesses, lithotomy, amputation, treatment of fractures and dislocations, hernia reduction and removal of foreign bodies were especially useful\".

        Union ouvrière. Contenant un chant: la Marseillaise de l?atelier, mise en musique par A. Thys [Arbeiterunion. Mit einem Lied: die Marseillaise, in Musik umgesetzt in der Werkstatt von A. Thys].

      Paris u. Lyon., Chez tous les libraires 1844 - XLIII, 136 S. Kl.8°, OBrosch. Dritte Auflage. - Die 1803 geborene Flora Tristan (eigentlich: Flora Célestine Thérèse Henriette Tristan Moscoso) war eine - auch zeitgenössisch - bekannte Schriftstellerin, (Früh-)Sozialistin und Frauenrechtlerin. Tristan wurde am 7. April 1803 in Paris als Tochter einer Französin und eines peruanischen Adeligen geboren. Sie wuchs in einem als schlossartig beschriebenen Anwesen auf. Tristan beschäftigte sich u.a. publizistisch mit den ?Schattenseiten? des ökonomischen Aufstiegs und des rasanten Industrialisierungsschubs in England. In ihrem Werk ?Im Dickicht von London oder die Aristokratie und die Proletarier Englands? (1840) reflektiert sie ihre Erfahrungen im englischen Ballungszentrum und anderen Industriestädten der Insel. Sie problematisiert die (Arbeits-)Situation in den Fabrikanlagen, in den Ghettos sozial Ausgestoßener, in den Zwangsanstalten für Delinquenten und den Stätten der Prostitution. - In ihrem hier vorliegenden 1843 erschienenen Hauptwerk, Union Ouvrière (Arbeiterunion), schliesst sie an ihre vormaligen Ausführungen an. Sie propagiert emphatisch den Zusammenschluss aller Arbeiterinnen und Arbeiter und appelliert, gemeinsam für die eigenen Rechte als Unterprivilegierte in den Kampf zu treten. Besonderes Augenmerk legt sie dabei auf das Recht auf Ausbildung - auch und ganz besonders jenes der Frauen. Tristan bereiste von Ende 1843 bis tief in das Jahr 1844 hinein ruhelos Frankreich, um in einer Vielzahl von Vorträgen ihre Thesen publikumswirksam in Szene zu setzen. In diesen äußert sie ihre Überzeugung, dass sich die arbeitende Bevölkerung organisieren muss, damit sich deren materielle Lebenswirklichkeit (grundlegend) verbessern kann. - Aufgrund ihrer publizistischen Einwürfe und umfangreichen Reiseaktivität war sie einem permanenten Repressions- und Überwachungsdruck ausgesetzt. Die kontinuierlichen Strapazen, die mit ihrem schriftstellerischen und politischen Engagement verbunden waren, führten zu einer wesentlichen Verschlechterung ihres Gesundheitszustands. Eine Typhus-Erkrankung forderte ihren Tribut. Tristan verstarb während der Vortragsreise im Alter von 41 Jahren am 14. November 1844 in Bordeaux. - Der Band enthält neben den Vorworten der ersten und zweiten Auflage die Auseinandersetzungen Tristans über die Unzulänglichkeiten der Hilfsangebote für die subalternen Klassen sowie die Wege und Mittel einer stabilen Etablierung als Arbeiterklasse. Des Weiteren legt sie ein organisatorisches Muster einer Arbeiterunion vor, die als Instrument dienen soll, sich gegenüber der Bourgeoisie behaupten zu können. Der Tristan-Band schließt mit der ?La Marseillaise de l?union ouvriere? und einem Projekt-Entwurf für eine wöchentliche Publikation unter dem Titel ?Arbeiterunion? ab. - Exemplar ungeschnitten, Umschlag mit zwei Eckausrissen, stellenweise stark gebräunt, am Falz knickspurig.
