        Vorlesungen über die psychische Anthropologie [.], herausgegeben von Dr. H. Ahrens. (= Handschriftlicher Nachlass. Herausgegeben von Freunden und Schülern Desselben. Erste Abtheilung, erste Reihe: Analytische Philosophie, Bd. 2).,

      Göttingen, in Commission der Dieterich‘schen Buchhandlung, 1848. - Erstausgabe. - Der Philosoph Karl Christian Friedrich Krause (1781-1832) studierte 1797-1800 in Jena Theologie, Mathematik und Philosophie (bei Fichte und Schelling) und wurde zum Dr. phil. promoviert. 1802 habilitierte sich Krause in Jena und las bis 1804 als Privatdozent über Naturrecht, Naturphilosophie, Mathematik und Logik. 1805 trat er in eine Freimaurerloge ein und war 1805-14 Lehrer an der Dresdner Ingenieurakademie. Danach in Berlin tätig, kehrte er 1815 nach Dresden zurück, unternahm 1817 eine Studienreise durch Italien und Frankreich und lebte seit 1823 als Privatdozent in Göttingen. Von dort 1831 wegen angeblicher revolutionärer Gesinnung ausgewiesen, ging er nach München, wo Schelling seine akademische Situierung behinderte. Vor allem von Fichtes "objektiver" Philosophie geprägt, entwickelte Krause ein System des Panentheismus, nach dem Gott alle Dinge, Natur und Geist, in sich begreift, jedoch noch übersteigt. Von Kant beeinflußt, suchte er die Spaltung zwischen Subjekt und Objekt in der Einheit der "Denklehre" und der "Schaulehre", von Philosophie und Kunst zu überwinden. Über seinen Schüler Heinrich Ahrens entfalteten Krauses Pädagogik und seine Philosophie vor allem in Spanien große Wirkung (Krausismo). - Einbandkanten berieben u. bestoßen.

In his History of South Africa Theal remarks of this book that "The leading events of that war are faithfully described, and a correct view is given of the occurrences that led to it...

        Personal Recollections of the late Daniel O'Connell, MP 1775-1847

      186, Strand, London.: Chapman and Hall, 1848 2 vols complete, near fine, 1st ed. In uniform, half tan calf with red marbled boards, some blind tooling, corners and edges brushed. Spines, attractive decorative gilt tooling, raised bands, titles in gilt to red and green calf labels, edges brushed. Internally, brown endpapers, text block edges sprinkled red, no inscriptions, printed by C Whiting, Beaufort House, Strand. Vol 1, 1848, [3], (iv-vi), [1], 2-312 pp. Vol 2, 1848, [2], [1], 2-231 pp, [1] adverts. A superb copy. (Allibone 1448.2802). O'Connell, Daniel [known as the Liberator], Irish nationalist leader who while in popular esteem O'Connell is the quintessential Irish national champion, his international significance is underestimated. He was a key figure in the emergence of European democracy and no Irish person before or since has commanded so much attention on the continent as he did in his lifetime. Similarly forgotten to a large extent is his role as an advocate of the rights of those civilly disadvantaged such as Jews, black slaves, and Australian Aborigines. Universalist and nationalist, champion of the weak and truculent bully, man of principle and shameless opportunist, O'Connell remains, like Napoleon or Gladstone, one of those figures with whom historians will never even imagine that they have finished.

        Réflexions et menus-propos d'un peintre genevois ou Essais sur le beau dans les Arts (.). Précédés d'une notice sur la vie et les ouvrages de l'auteur par Albert Aubert.

Dubochet, Lechevalier et Cie, 1848. 2 volumes petit in-8, plein veau blond glacé de l'époque, dos à nerfs ornés de caissons garnis d'un riche décor doré aux petits fers, pièces de titre et de tomaison de maroquin bordeaux, datés en pied, filet d'encadrement doré sur les plats, roulette sur les coupes, tranches peigne (accroc de cuir à un plat), (4), xxxvi, 342 p. et (4), 350 p. Première édition collective, en partie originale. "Les textes qui forment ce recueil furent conçus sous forme de fascicules, entre 1830 et 1843 ( ). Dans ce travail théorique majeur, Töpffer veut donner une conception nouvelle des arts du dessin, en les dégageant du canon classique de l'imitation. Pour sa démonstration, qu'il construit a contrario, il oppose la photographie, qui vient à peine d'être inventée, aux Beaux-arts. Ainsi dans le texte 'De la plaque Daguerre', la photographie est-elle présentée comme un procédé voué à la simple imitation mécanique de la nature, tandis que le dessin apparaît, lui, comme un art libre, poétique et spirituel" (Charles Grivel). Ex-libris armorié gravé de Sylvain van de Weyer (Louvain, 1802- Londres, 1874), avocat, diplomate et homme d’Etat belge qui fut membre du Gouvernement provisoire en 1830 et Premier ministre entre 1845 et 1846.

        Glossaire Nautique. Repertoire Polyglotte de Terms de Marine Anciens et Modernes.

      Paris: Firmin Didot Frères, 1848 - 2 volumes quarto (274 × 208 mm). Contemporary sheep-backed marbled boards. Slightly rubbed, spines mildly scuffed and with some splitting, skilfully repaired, somewhat browned, as usual, but overall a very good set. Illustrations in the text. First edition. Jal was a member of the French naval historical section, becoming official historiographer and eventually head of the archives. This universal marine dictionary was a labour of love, absorbing much of Jal's time for over 6 years, winning him the prestigious Prix Gobert of the Académie Française. "This work contains in one alphabetical sequence words from Latin, Greek, Modern Greek, French, Old French, Italian, Portuguese, Swedish, Dutch, Breton, Genoese, Basque, Catalan, Maltese, and other dialects and tongues; comparatively little in English, German and Russian; monumental work, with full definitions, not mere equivalents" (Craig). It is probably most comprehensive marine dictionary ever produced. Craig - Bibliography of Encyclopedias and Dictionaries dealing with Military, Naval, and Maritime Affairs, 1577-1971 p.40; Polak 4660. [Attributes: First Edition]

A fine Australian view by Robert Marsh Westmacott (1801-1870) from his Sketches in Australia, a series of tinted lithographic plates of Sydney and Harbour areas, mountains and southern coastal regions of New South Wales, "drawn from nature".Little is known of Westmacott, except that he was a captain in the 4th (King's Own)Regiment, and that he spent the early 1840s in Australia. His published views represent the last in the chronology of work by military or naval officers in the romantic landscape tradition of the early 19th century.

Very tiny nick to the foot of spine but otherwise externally impeccable, light spotting to plates and end leaves, single wormhole to rear hinge at the foot; excellent condition. First edition in book form of Dickens's Dombey and Son, in a beautiful "Cosway-style binding". These bindings, so called after the famous Regency miniaturist Richard Cosway, were a style of binding executed by Rivière & Son for Sotheran's, with miniatures by Miss C. B. Currie mounted under glass on the front cover. Some but not all examples had certificates of authenticity signed by Miss Currie and J. H. Shorthouse, the "inventor" of the style. Though without certificate or signature, this volume, from the same bindery, has most of the hallmarks of the Cosway format, very attractive and with a high-quality miniature.

        Road from Emu Plains, over the Blue Mountains

      Exeter,: W. Spreats Lithographic Establishment, 1848.. Hand coloured lithograph; fine, 131x200mm, mounted. An attractive view from Sketches in Australia, taken from drawings by Captain R.M. Westmacott. Shows the first stone bridge built in New South Wales.Prior to European settlement, what is now Emu Plains was on the border of the Western Sydney-based Darug people and the Southern Highlands-based Gandangara people, whose land extended into the Blue Mountains. The first British explorers to visit the area surveyed Emu Plains in 1790 and named it Emu Island after emus they sighted on the land and in the mistaken belief that the land was actually on an island in the Nepean River. It was first referred to by its current name by Governor Lachlan Macquarie in 1814 when William Cox started building his road over the Blue Mountains from there.Captain Westmacott published Sketches in Australia in 1848 and like many of the military officers stationed in colonial New South Wales was a competent draughtsman. He produced many drawings of Sydney and its environs.

        Lettera autografa firmata Torino, 26 dicembre 1848

      Lettera in italiano autografa firmata "Alberto Della Marmora" indirizzata al "signor Avvocato". La Marmora esprime tutta la sua indignazione per i giudizi negativi pronunciati sul suo conto da un deputato dopo una seduta in Senato. "Le debbo però distinte grazie di avermi collocato tra quelli che sono ora ciò che erano una volta, e che lo debbono essere, e lo saranno sempre; accetto l’asserzione e la profezia. Soldato all'età di 17 anni, soldato sempre fui in tempo di guerra, e soldato sempre sarò tanto che durerà questa, e che batterà il mio cuore tutto italiano. Combattei nel 1809 e nel 1813 contro l'Austriaco; cercai di combatterlo nel 1821 per la qual cosa fui dismesso; lo combattei nel 1848, e non dispero di combatterlo ancora nel 1849". Alberto La Marmora, autore del celeberrimo "Voyage en Sardaigne", servì con il grado di generale durante le guerre napoleoniche e fu decorato personalmente da Napoleone I. In seguito entrò nell'esercito del Regno di Sardegna. 4 pagine su carta verdina, fittamente redatte le prime due, due righe e firma alla terza e altra firma alla quarta. Ottime condizioni.
