Sand, George, Schriftstellerin (1804-1876).
[Paris], 2. IV. 1844. 3 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief). An Gabriel Falampin (1803-1860), der Sands Geschäfte besorgte, wegen eines Vertrags mit dem Verleger Charles Arthur Perrotin. Die Forderung Perrotins von 1000 Franc gefiele Sand zwar überhaupt nicht, jedoch habe sie akzeptiert, die Summe innerhalb von fünf Jahren nach Beendigung des Vertrags zu erstatten. Sand möchte damit verhindern, dass Perrotin mit der Beschwerde komme, es würde sich für ihn dabei um ein Risikogeschäft handeln. Im weiteren Verlauf erläutert sie noch andere Abmachungen, die mit Perrotin getroffen wurden: "La réclamation des mille Francs donnés par Mr Perrotin à titre d'arrangement avec Buloz [d. i. François B., der Herausgeber der "Revue des Deux Mondes"] ne me regarde pas [.] Seulement comme je ne veux pas que Perrotin ait sujet de se plaindre des hasards de l'affaire, j'accorderai le remboursement de cette somme à l'expiration des cinq ans de notre traité, si, à cette époque, Perrotin ayant établi ses comptes, m'affirme en conscience que ses bénéfices ont été moindres que les miens. En échange de la radiation de l'article des quatre ouvrages [.] je lui accorderai d'éditer in-18 Consuelo et La Ctesse de Rudolstadt sans préjudice de toute autre édition illustrée [.]". - Auf Briefpapier mit gepr. Monogramm; ein kleines Loch an der Siegelstelle ohne Beeinträchtigung des Textes. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

1844. Large 4to. 2 pp. on double leaf. Appointed Consul in Jeddah, Fresnel explored the Arabian Peninsula together with his friend Joseph Thomas Arnaud, "a pénétré, l'an dernier, à Mareb (ou Saba) et en a rapporté un trésor d'inscriptions et de renseignements curieux [...] Les résultats de ce beau voyage intéressant d'une manière spéciale la philologie et l'archéologie orientales, j'ai cru devoir les adresser directement au Journal aisatique [...]".

Victor Borie
Imprimerie Danicourt Orléans, 1844. In-8° relié demi-chagrin de l'époque, reliure signée Charles Haas. 16 pages. Ex-libris de René Fage, illustre fils du Berry comme Victor Borie et Georges Sand dont il était l'ami - - - Contiguo al filosofo socialista Leroux, fu coinvolto da questi nella realizzazione di un giornale di impostazione comunista: 'L'eclaireur de l'Idre'. Nel 1849 venne poi condannato a un anno di prigione per il tentativo di fondare un altro giornale rivoluzionario, 'Le travailleur de l'Idre'. Fuggito in Belgio, rientro' in Francia nel 1852 per scontare la pena. Successivamente, anche su influenza delle posizioni economiche di Bastiat e Say, passo' da essere fiero avversario delle posizioni libero scambiste, in particolare in materia di cereali, a sostenitore del libero scambismo. Restano comunque le parole con cui George Sand presenta Travailleurs e proprietaires nel 1849: 'Mais le communisme, lorsque il aura trouve' sa formule c'est a' dire lorsqu'il ne sera plus la moitie' d'une verite' [.] il y apportera l'e'quilibre qui manque a' la socie'te'.'.

It dwells on the visit to the court of Shoa, and the anthropological differences between tribes in the area, modern day Ethiopia and Somalia. In addition, it covers a wide range of ethnological and enviromental concerns, including sections on Islam, mirages, scorpion hunting and others. In particular, Johnston had a fascination with hydrology, which manifests itself in a higher than average number of passages on rivers and lakes.

Wilkins, William
Blair & Rives, [Washington DC], 1844. 8p. pamphlet, disbound, neatly trimmed, with sound margins remaining. Report by Mr. Wilkins of the Committee on the Judiciary, to whom was referred the petition of William Jones, a free Black man who, "Whilst in the enjoyment of his liberty in Washington city," was arrested on suspicion of being an escaped slave. Without ever being formally charged with a crime, Jones was advertised for sale into slavery by the marshal of the District of Columbia in order to pay for the cost of his imprisonment. The marshal, whose communication is included here, claimed that "no proof has been adduced before me that the said William Jones is not a runaway." The committee found in favor of Jones. However, the minority report, also included here, which was co-signed by RM Saunders, Armistead Burt, and Richard French, argues that the presumption of slave status was fair for any Black person found walking about without proof of non-slave status. "To hold that all persons of color found at large in the District should be deemed and held as free until the contrary appeared, would make it not only the favorite resort, but the common receptacle of fugitive slaves, to the great loss of the slave owner, and the insupportable annoyance of the inhabitants of the District."

Stuttgart : Literar. Verein 1844. Vorwort deutsch, der Text katalanisch. XXXVI, 550 S. ; 8° gebundene Ausgabe, Halbleder, Exemplar in gutem Erhaltungszustand Ramon Muntaner (1265 bis 1336) gehört zu den großen Chronisten Kataloniens. Er selbst führte ein unstetes Söldnerleben das ihn u.a. bis an die Küste Kleinasiens und die Insel Djerba in Tunesien verschlug.Vom 15. Mai 1325 bis 1328[1] verfasste Muntaner seine Crònica, eine Chronik über den Aufstieg der katalanisch-aragonesischen Dynastie und teilweise ein echter Erlebnisbericht Muntaners. Die Chronik beginnt mit den wichtigsten Episoden aus der Zeit Jakobs I. (1205–1276), wird mit der Zeit nach 1280 ausführlicher und bildet den Hauptteil mit der Expedicio a Orient. Er schildert seinen Aufenthalt auf Djerba, die kriegerischen Unternehmungen Jakobs II. bis zu dessen Tode 1327 und die Krönung Alfons IV. 1328 in Saragossa. Das Ziel dieser Schrift ist keine Autobiographie, sondern der Lob des „casal d’Aragó“, des Hauses Aragon. Muntaners Intention ist es zu zeigen, unter welcher besonderen göttlichen Gunst und Gnade Jakob I. und seine Nachfahren stehen und noch immer stehen werden.[4] Muntaner wollte den zukünftigen Königen von Aragon mit diesem Werk eine Art Regelwerk für eine zukünftig große Herrschaft vor Augen führen. Zusammen mit den anderen katalanischen Chroniken beeinflusste es die Entwicklung späterer Chroniken und der katalanischen Schriften Curial e Guelfa und Tirant lo Blanc Spanien Versand D: 4,50 EUR Katalanien / katalanische Chronik / , Spanien / spanische Geschichte / europäische Geschichte / Hispania / Iber … [Click Below for Full Description]

Erste Ausgabe, feines Exemplar aus dem Vorbesitzt der Familie des Verfassers "Dr. med. O(tto). Blasius". Bereits 1840 hat der Braunschweiger Zoologe Johann Heinrich Blasius aus (1809-1870) "sich unvergängliche Verdienste erworben durch das grundlegende Buch , "Die Wirbeltiere Europas", das er gemeinsam mit Bismarcks vertrautem Jugendfreund, dem Graf Alexander Keyersling (1815-1891) verfaßte" von dem leider nur das erste Buch des ersten Bandes erschienen ist. Anschließend unternahmen er mit seinem langjährigen Freund Keyserling eine Expedition durch Rußland, die Baron Alexander von Meyendorff (1796-1865) im Auftrag des russischen Finanzminister Graf Cancrin organisierte. Auch die Naturforscher Murchison und Verneuil schlossen sich an, um geognostische Formationen zu studieren. Blasius versichert in der Einleitung, dass er neben seinen wissenschaftlichen Forschungen ein großes Bedürfnis hatte, Land und Leute kennenzulernen. "So will ich mich denn auch nicht entschuldigen, wenn ich zu Zeiten und an Orten, wo es keine Schädel zu präpariren und keine Petrefacten aus dem Gestein zu meißeln gab und alle Vögel weggeflogen waren, meine Blicke dem Menschen zukehrte und sein Leben und Thun beobachtete. Ich will es sogar nicht verhehlen, daß ich in Rußland mehr Gotteshäuser gezeichnet habe, als Thiere, obschon es mir oft durch die Neugier der Polizei sehr erschwert wurde" (I, p. 5 … [Click Below for Full Description]

CATLIN, George (1796-1872)
London: Printed by Day & Haghe, 1844. Tinted lithograph. Printed on fine wove paper. In execellent condition with the exception of a skillfully mended tear along the bottom margin. A fine image from Catlin's 'North American Indian Portfolio', one of the most important accounts of Native American life. "In this struggle, which... generally lasts about half an hour, there is a desperate contention for the mastery, which is easily seen to be decided by reason and invention, rather than by superiority in brute force. The Indian leans back upon his halter, which is firmly held in both hands, and as his horse is getting breath and strength to rise, repeatedly checks it, preventing it from gaining any advantage; and gradually advances, hand over hand upon the tightened halter, towards the horse's head, until [it]... allows the caressing hand of its new master to pat it on the nose, and in a few minutes to cover its eyes, when the exchange of a few deep-drawn breaths from their meeting nostrils seems to compromise the struggle; the animal discovering in its conqueror, instead of an enemy, a friend... for the rest of its life." Catlin summarized the Native American as "an honest, hospitable, faithful, brave, warlike, cruel, revengeful, relentless, -- yet honourable, contemplative and religious being". In a famous passage from the preface of his North American Indian Portfolio , Catlin describes how the sight of several tribal chiefs in Philadelphia led to his resolution to record their way of life: "the history and customs of such a people, preserved by pictorial illustra … [Click Below for Full Description]

Manning, Robert & John M. Ives
Salem, Mass: Published by W. & S. B. Ives, 1844. Octavo (19 x 12 cm.), [x], 133 pages. Handcolored frontispiece. Illustrated with wood engravings of fruit. Index of varietals at rear. Second, enlarged edition. A brief but broad survey of the cultivation of a wide variety of tree fruits, berries and vines, including a look at transplanting, pruning, grafting, bussing, etc. Manning established a pomological nursery at Salem, Massachusetts in 1823 (Amerine & Borg), and according to Hedrick, Manning's observations were made first hand at this nursery and elsewhere. More than two hundred fifteen apples, pears, plums, cherries and peaches are included in the index of varietals. The work concludes with a description of grafting under the bark to repair trees that have been girdled by mice. Some soil and dampstaining throughout, but still sound and legible. A few corrections in pencil. In original brown cloth boards, blind-stamped and gilt decorated, with the title and an image of some apples. Some edgewear and soiling, but still good or better. The book has the pencil ownership signature of a "Joshua Wilders, 1844" to the front paste-down, and an bookseller's ink stamp to the front fly leaf. An additional bookseller's stamp, of the "Inoue Book Company, Tokyo Hongo" is adhered to the front paste-down as well, evidence of this book's notable journey.
