        Letter, signed ("Metternich") to Viscount Ponsonby enclosing a warrant to allow the British sloop "Arab" to enforce the terms of the Treaty of London of 20 December, 1841, between Great Britain, Prussia, France, Austia, and Russia, to suppress the slave trade

      [Vienna], 1847. 1-/2 pages on rectos of single bifolium. In French. 1 vols. Folio. Docketed at top of firt page "transmit warrant for the 'Arab'". Creased at top, small, semi-circular tear through both leaves (text unaffected), minor soiling; overall, very good. 1-/2 pages on rectos of single bifolium. In French. 1 vols. Folio. Enforcing the Ban on the Slave Trade. The Treaty of London of 20 December, 1841, the so-called "Quintuple Treaty" between the 5 major powers, was the first major international agreement to abolish the slave trade. The agreement allowed a squadron of designated ships of the Royal Navy, with certain powers of search and seizure, to patrol the coast of Africa, Each of the ships of the Royal Navy had to be approved, however, with an official warrant, by the signatory nations. The present document transmits such a warrant from Austria for the English sloop "Arab", under the command of William Morris. Viscount Ponsonby (c.1770-1855) was a career diplomat who, despite the fact that, according to the ODNB, "his behaviour as an ambassador sometimes embarrassed the government" (for numerous affairs), he was appointed to Vienna as Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary, serving from 1846 to 1850. Metternich, of course has been called the greatest diplomat of the 19th century.

        MEDINET ABOU, THEBES [A View of The Mortuary Temple of Ramesses III at Medinet Habu; Being an Original Hand-Coloured Lithograph From] THE HOLY LAND, SYRIA, IDUMEA, ARABIA, EGYPT AND NUBIA

      London F.G. Moon and Co. 1847 - From the Standard Folio First Edition, limited to 500 sets only. A single original hand-coloured lithographic plate drawn on stone by Louis Haghe after David Roberts' paintings done on location in 1832. Printed on a single folio sheet 23.5" x 16", the captioned image, is 19" x 13", now presented in cream mounting boards 30" x 24" glazed behind clear mylar. Beautifully hand-coloured to the highest standards of the time. An example in excellent condition, clean, fresh, beautifully preserved. FROM One of the most desirable of all travel and COLOURplate books. This is an attractive image inside the courtyard of the Mortuary Temple Medinet Abou, known for having over 7000 square meters of relatively well preserved decorated wall reliefs. Ruined columns and sand fill the courtyard and a single visitor gives scale to the surround walls. Excavation of the temple started in 1859, when Robert's painted this image it was at the mercy of the desert sands. We have a good number of impressive images from the Standard Folio Edition of this classic work available for purchase. As well as many views of Egypt there are also views available of Tyre, Nubia, Petra, Sinai, the Jordan, Sidon and Baalbec. Please inquire for further details. In the course of two and a half months in 1838, traveling some 800 miles south from Cairo, Roberts recorded the monumental temple sites along the Nile in more than a hundred sketches. As the first British artist to sketch the monuments of Ancient Egypt, set on "Plains so vast.that, until you come near them, you have no idea of their magnificence," Roberts was well aware of the stir his drawings would create in London. According to John Ruskin, writing in PRAETERITA, Roberts's drawings "were the first studies ever made conscientiously by an English painter, not to exhibit his own skill, but to give true portraiture of scenes of historical and religious interest."

        Narrative of the Surveying Voyage of H.M.S. Fly, commanded by Captain F. P. Blackwood, R.N. in Torres Strait, New Guinea, and other Islands of the Eastern Archipelago, during the Years 1842-1846: together with an Excursion into the Interior of the Eastern Part of Java

      London: T. & W. Boone, 1847 - 2 volumes octavo. Original dark blue combed cloth, titles gilt to the spine, elaborate panelling in blind to the boards, yellow surface-paper endpapers. Housed in a dark blue flat back cloth solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Very light shelf-wear, corners just bumped, mild crumpling head and tail of the spines, hinges just starting, light browning, some foxing front and back with a scatter else, but a very good copy indeed. Engraved crested bookplates of Hugh Edward Adair (1815-1902), 3rd baronet of Flixton Hall, Suffolk, to the pastedowns. Uncoloured aquatint frontispiece to each, and 14 other similar plates in all, together with 3 engraved plates, and numerous engraved illustrations to the text including one full-page, a folding map at the rear of each volume. An exceptional copy of the first edition, first issue - in " fine straight-ribbed blue cloth, all boards with elaborate blind stamped central ornament" (Wantrup) - of this "very important voyage" (Hill) commissioned by the Admiralty to survey the Torres Strait, the Great Barrier Reef, as well as the various regions in New Guinea. This was one of a series of detailed hydrographical surveys undertaken for the Admiralty around this time, its specific purpose being to have the Great Barrier Reef explored "and to have the gaps surveyed in order that some means might be devised for marking the most eligible of these openings, in order that they could be recognised in due time and passed through in comparative safety" (Ingelton, Charting a Continent). The expedition was noteworthy for being "the first to be despatched to Australia on a purely surveying mission". These surveys of the Torres Strait and Great Barrier Reef were of great importance, as also the discoveries made in New Guinea and the surrounding islands. Blackwood's Directions for this dangerous part of the Australian coast were so "accurate that many appear on maps to the present day" (Hogego). Jukes, who was naturalist to the expedition, was destined for the cloth, but despite advice to the contrary, insisted on attending Adam Sedgwick's geology classes at Cambridge "this proved to be Jukes's moment of rebirth. Visions of the cloth vanished" (ODNB). In 1839, through Sedgwick's influence he was appointed geological surveyor to the colony of Newfoundland, on his return to England he failed to secure the chair in geology at University College, London, but was selected to accompany the Fly to Australia; "over the next four years Jukes pursued his science in locations such as Madeira, Cape Colony, New Guinea, Australia, and the Great Barrier Reef. By the time the Fly dropped anchor at Spithead on 19 June 1846 he was a geologist of global experience he [was to become] perhaps the finest British field geologist of his day". A handsome, and unusually well-preserved copy. Ferguson 4549; Hill 901; Howgego, II, B39; Ingleton, pp.61-8; Spence 468; Wantrup 92a. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Voyage au Pole Sud et dans L'Oceanie sure les corvettes L'Astrolabe et la Zelee. Anthropologie - Geologie.

      Paris: Gide et J. Baudry, 1842-1847. - DUMONT D'URVILLE, Jules Sebastien Cesar (1790-1842). Voyage au Pole Sud et dans L'Oceanie sure les corvettes L'Astrolabe et la Zelee pendant les annees 1837-1838-1839-1840 sous le commandement de M. Dumont-D'Urville Capitaine de Vaisseau - Anthropologie - Geologie. Paris: Gide et J. Baudry, 1842-1847. ATLAS VOLUME ONLY. Folio (21 4/8 x 14 inches). Anthropologie - 47 tinted lithographed plates of life-masks, skulls and cranial cross-sections, and 3 engraved plates; Geologie - 2 double-page engraved maps and 2 full-page maps hand-coloured in part and 9 lithographed plates of views and specimens (plates loose, one or two with frayed edges not affecting the images). Contemporary maroon backed, marbled paper boards, gilt (detached). The important anthropological and geological atlas volume to Dumont D’Urville’s third voyage of exploration to the South Pacific, which left Toulon late in 1837 in the Astrolabe and the Zélée. Their aim was to voyage as far south as possible, surpassing the latitude of Weddell, and so claim the South Magnetic Pole for the French. Then they would pass through the Strait of Magellan, voyage up the coast of Chile and across to Western Australia, on to Hobart, New Zealand, then the East Indies, round the Cape of Good Hope and return in France. In the event they were delayed and spent too long in the Strait of Magellan before heading south and ended up entangled in ice-bergs struggling towards the South Orkney Islands, followed by the South Shetland Islands and finally Bransfield Strait, before conditions onboard became so bad that he returned north to Talcahuano, in Chile, where they established a temporary hospital for the crew members affected by scurvy. A more gentle exploration of the Pacific led the Astrolabe and Zelee to the Marquesas, the East Indies, and on to Tasmania where they were greeted by the then governor of Tasmania, later the celebrated but tragic arctic explorer, Sir John Franklin. Unfortunately Dumont D’Urville learned from Franklin that the American explorer Charles Wilkes was in Sydney preparing to voyage south. Inspired by the competition, Dumont D’Urville determined to head south in spite of the depletion of his crew. By January of 1840 they had crossed the Antarctic Circle and sighted land. They hoisted the Ticolour at Pointe Géologie and named the land beyond for France, Terre Adélie (Adélie Land). Sightings of Wilkes’ vessel the Porpoise were recorded, but they returned via New Zealand, the Torres Strait, Timor, Réunion, Saint Helena, reaching Toulon, in early November 1840.

Da bekannt war, ich selbst schriebs dem Polizeydirector, daß um 4 Uhr Nachmittag Studenten hergezogen kamen [?] so hätten zweckmäßige Vorkehrungen getroffen werden sollen. Daß keine Wiederhohlungen weder bey Nacht noch Tag ähnliche Auftritte es gäbe, dem muß vorgebeugt werden.

Bey Tag und Nacht ist Sorge zu tragen daß nicht nur wo Lola Montez jetzt wohnt sondern auch ihr eigenes Haus beschützt werde. Das alles ist mein ernster Wille [.] Sehr wünschenswerth die Rädelsführer habhaft zu werden." - Nachdem die Äffäre des Bayernkönigs mit der Tänzerin Lola Montez bekannt geworden und das Bestreben des Königs, ihr die bayerische Staatsbürgerschaft zu verleihen, bei seinem Kabinett auf Widerstand gestoßen war, hatten am 11. Februar 1847 sämtliche Minister um ihre Entlassung gebeten; diese folgte am 1. März, am Tag des vorliegenden Schreibens. Unter Schwierigkeiten wurde ein neues Kabinett gebildet und Lola Montez dennoch eingebürgert, was in der Theresienstraße zu Tumulten führte. Am 25. August 1847 wurde sie zur Gräfin von Landsfeld erhoben.

      Pelham Richardson, London 1847 - A large 4to. two volume set in original stamped cloth with gilt decoration on front and rear boards. Both volumes show moderate to heavy rubbing and are reinforced on the spine with black tape. Both volumes loosening from binding in places but gently holding and both contain mimeographed listing of the plates pasted to front or rear flys and dedication page evidently for quick reference. Volume 1 contains 118 text pages followed by 51 single sided full page illustrations of which I believe one (Illustration 37) is an original pen and ink illustration signed with an elaborate E. Volume 2 contains no text, just 107 full page plates 4 of which (illustrations 72-75) I believe are also original ink illustrations signed the same way. Both volumes have fairly minor pencil annotation from a person very familiar with the content. Also included will be a few small sketches of gothic windows found folded within.

The temple is located on the west bank of the Nile in the city of Edfu which was known in Greco-Roman times as Apollonopolis Magna, after the chief god Horus-Apollo. The temple of Edfu is the largest temple dedicated to Horus. We have a good number of impressive images from the Standard Folio Edition of this classic work available for purchase. As well as many views of Egypt there are also views available of Tyre, Nubia, Petra, Sinai, the Jordan, Sidon and Baalbec. Please inquire for further details. In the course of two and a half months in 1838, traveling some 800 miles south from Cairo, Roberts recorded the monumental temple sites along the Nile in more than a hundred sketches. As the first British artist to sketch the monuments of Ancient Egypt, set on "Plains so vast.that, until you come near them, you have no idea of their magnificence," Roberts was well aware of the stir his drawings would create in London. According to John Ruskin, writing in PRAETERITA, Roberts's drawings "were the first studies ever made conscientiously by an English painter, not to exhibit his own skill, but to give true portraiture of scenes of historical and religious interest."

On title pages of vols. 1, 4, 6, and 7, incipit staves from no. 8 left blank; filled staves and prices next to them are the same as in vols. 2-3, 5, and 8-12. Title pages are othersie identical. Publisher's blindstamp to title of vols. 1, 3, 4, 6-8, and 10. Caption title "Symphonie" without number through vol. 7; no. 8 with arabic numeral; nos. 9-12 with roman numerals. Caption credits to "J. Haydn" to nos. 8 and 10-12. Publisher's note "Ed. Bote & G. Bock, Berlin" printed at lower right corner of first page of music from vol. 9 on. Notational correction in pencil to p. 108 of no. 6. Bindings slightly worn, rubbed and bumped; spines of vols. 1, 3, and 12 lacking; small stains to vol. 6. A complete set, including first editions in full score, of Hoboken I: 88, 96, and 100, various issues. Hoboken Haydn catalogue III, pp. 17-18 ("Coll. Sy. 5"), with title conforming to the latest of the three given by Hoboken; the imprint allows for dating between 1847 (opening of the Breslau office) and 1866 (liquidation of Scharfenberg & Luis). Hoboken collection catalogue 6: 175 (vol. 11, with mispagination, dated "um 1853"), 234 (vol. 8, misdated "um 1839"), 238 (vol. 10, mislabeled "Erstdruck" and misdated "1839"), 279 (vol. 2, earlier issue with incipits for nos. 1-7 only misdated "1839"), 294 (vol. 1, later issue with incipits for all 12 numbers). The first issues were announced in 1839, and the plate numbers reserved at the same time. Publication, however, seems to have stretched over many years: the first six volumes are listed in Hofmeister 1852, vol. 7 in Hofmeister 1860, and the final five in Hofmeister 1868. The differences in printing quality suggests that vols. 7-12 are first (or early) issues and vols. 1-6 later issues; in vols. 2, 3, and 5, the later issue is confirmed by the presence of all twelve incipits on the title page. The monogram "E.M." cannot be identified, but it is possible that it stands for Eusebius Mandyczewski (1857-1929), the initiator of the first complete edition of Haydn's works. A well- preserved set. Together with: [Hoboken I:97] Symphonien von Joseph Haydn. Partitur... No. 7 C dur... Pr. 1 Thlr. 10 Ngr. [Full score]. Leipzig: Breitkopf & Härtel [PN 9055], [ca. 1855]. Octavo. Black cloth- backed gray boards with blank label to spine and upper. 1f. (title), 59, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved. Handstamp of "Karl Schwager Musikalienhandlung u. Antiquariat Wien" to title. Binding quite worn, rubbed and bumped with portions of cloth spine lacking; front endpaper detached. Somewhat browned; minor blue and graphite pencil markings to title; some pages guarded; pp. 5-16 lacking. First Edition, most probably first issue. Hoboken Haydn catalogue I, p. 196 and III, p. 19 (Coll.Sy.7b; there, date is given as "1855/58"). Hoboken collection catalogue 6, 243. Not in Hirsch or RISM. The list of symphonies on the title page includes nine numbers. The first six scores (Hoboken I: 93, 94, 99, 101, 203, 104) were published in Haydn's lifetime and reissued in 1854. The present number was the first of another six symphonies (Hoboken I: 86, 95, 98, 100, and 102), completed by 1858. The fact that the list on the title ends with "no. 9" and not with "no. 12" allows the dating of the present copy to the short time before the new set was complete.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Leipzig, 20. VII. 1847. - ¾ SS. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "Ew. Wohlgeboren erhalten anliegend den gewünschten Aufsatz Ihren Magazinirungsplan betreffend. Ich hoffe, Sie richtig verstanden zu haben, und wünsche, daß die Darstellung Ihnen genügen mag. Da die kleine Arbeit in mathematischer Hinsicht von keiner großen Bedeutung ist, so bitte ich, wenn Sie davon Gebrauch zu machen beabsichtigen, meinen Namen nicht zu erwähnen [.]". - Moritz Wilhelm Drobisch war bereits mit 24 Jahren Professor der Mathematik an der Universität Leipzig und beschäftigte sich darüber hinaus mit empirischer Philosophie; 1842 erhielt er dann auch einen philosophischen Lehrstuhl. "Drobisch verbreitete die Lehren Johann Friedrich Herbarts und arbeitete vor allem auf dem Gebiet der Logik, wobei er den formalen Charakter der Logik gegenüber dem aufkommenden Psychologismus betonte. Seine 'Neue Darstellung der Logik nach ihren einfachsten Verhältnissen mit Rücksicht auf Mathematik und Naturwissenschaft' (1836) erfuhr mehrere Auflagen [.] Drobisch beschäftigte sich auch mit musikalischen Fragestellungen und veröffentlichte u. a. 'Über die mathematische Bestimmung der musikalischen Intervalle' (1846)" (DBE).

        The First Six Books of the Elements of Euclid in which coloured diagrams and symbols are used instead of letters for the greater ease of learners. By Oliver Byrne

      Small 4to. London: William Pickering, 1847. Small 4to, xxix, 268 pp., color diagrams throughout printed in red, blue, yellow and black; wood-engraved initials. Original half brown morocco, gilt-lettered backstrip, a very bright and clean copy without the usual heavy foxing and staining. First edition of Byrne?s presentation of Euclidean geometry, in which colours are substituted for the usual letters to designate the angles and lines of geometric figures. Tufte?s copy ($15,000, 2010) was described thus: ?BYRNE'S SPECTACULAR RENDERING OF EUCLIDEAN GEOMETRY USING FOUR-COLOR PRINTING. The stark use of primary colors was envisaged by Byrne as a teaching aid. "Each proposition is set in Caslon italic, with a four line initial engraved on wood by Mary Byfield: the rest of the page is a unique riot of red, yellow and blue ... attaining a verve not seen again on book pages till the days of Dufy, Matisse and Derain" (McLean). "Color serves as a label most notably of all in Oliver Byrne's 1847 edition of Euclid's Geometry. This truly visual Euclid discards the letter-coding native to geometry texts. In a proof, each element names itself by consistent shape, color, and orientation; instead of talking about angle DEF, the angle is shown--appropriately enough for geometry" (Tufte, Envisioning Information, p.84). Byrne's depiction of Pythagoras is a classic, with the squares being visually interpreted so in vivid blocks of colour. In a technical tour-de-force, Whittingham skillfully aligned the different color blocks for printing to produce "One of the oddest and most beautiful books of the whole century" (McLean). Against McLean's conclusion that it is a "decided complication of Euclid", Edward Tufte finds that "A close look, however, indicates that Byrne's design clarifies the overly indirect and compicated Euclid, at least for certain readers" (ibid.) "THE MOST ATTRACTIVE EDITION OF EUCLID THE WORLD HAS EVER SEEN" (Werner Oechslin, in an essay to the Taschen reprint, Cologne: 2010). Ing, Charles Whittingham Printer 46; Keynes, Pickering pp. 37, 65; McLean, Victorian Book Design p.51.

Erste Ausgabe der Sammlung des "radikalen" Demokraten. - Heinzen (1809-1880) studierte in Bonn Medizin, wurde 1829 jedoch relegiert. Er reiste in holländischen Diensten nach Ostindien, wurde nach seiner Rückkehr Steuerbeamter in Preußen. Seine scharfe Kritik an der preußischen Verwaltung während der Restauration führte zu seiner Flucht, zunächst nach Belgien (1844), dann in die Schweiz und 1847 - im Jahr der vorliegenden Publikation - in die USA. Von hier führte er eine publizistische Auseinandersetzung mit Karl Marx und Friedrich Engels (Deutsch-Brüsseler Zeitung). Während der Märzrevolution 1848 kehrte Heinzen nach Deutschland zurück und unterstützte die Badische Revolution, ging nach ihrem Scheitern in die USA zurück und arbeitete als Redakteur und Herausgeber verschiedener Zeitungen (insbesondere des "Pionier" in Boston).

Importante studio in cui questo chimico e cristallografo francese ipotizza l'esistenza di strutture molecolari tridimensionali. Tuttavia l'opera, non suffragata da consistenti prove chimiche, ebbe, ai suoi tempi,Âscarsa accoglienza. Gaudin si dedico' dapprima alla cristallografia. Utilizzando fiamme molto calde riusci' a sintetizzare per la prima volta zaffiri e rubini artificiali. Si interesso' di dagherrotipia e puo' essere infatti considerato un pioniere delle tecniche fotografiche di impressione e sviluppo. Espresse la distinzione fra atomo e molecola, individuando in quest'ultima un aggregato isolato di atomi, anche identici. Assegno' il peso atomico corretto a 23 elementi e determino', attraverso i pesi molecolari, le formule esatte di numerosi composti organici e inorganici. ITA
