        Eidgen. Amt für geistiges Eigentum, Patentschrift. Patent Nr. 21959, Klasse 57, 5. Mai 1900, 7 3/4 Uhr p.: Georg Luger, in Charlottenburg (Deutschland): Rückstosslader mit beweglichem Lauf und Kniegelenk-Verschluss.

      4, 7 (1) S. Text u. 3 Doppeltaf., Geh., Min. knittrig, tadellos. Auf Hinterdeckel klein als Amtsexemplar gestempelt. Georg Johann Luger (1849-1923 in Fichtenau bei Berlin) war ein österreichischer Waffentechniker. Er ist der Erfinder der Parabellum-Pistole. Georg von Luger wurde während der 1870er Jahre mit Ferdinand Ritter von Mannlicher bekannt, der ihn schließlich aufgrund seiner Sprachkenntnisse und Weltgewandtheit als Handelsvertreter für den Waffenerzeuger Deutsche Waffen- und Munitionsfabrik AG, vormals Ludwig Loewe & Co. in Berlin anwarb. Luger sollte das von DWM gefertigte Mannlicher M118 Gewehr in den italienischen Markt einführen und sich darüber hinaus seiner eigentlichen Neigung, der Waffenentwicklung, widmen.Im November 1894 führte ihn eine Vortrags- und Präsentationsreise zur Bewerbung neuer Produkte über die Schweiz, Deutschland und Belgien in die USA, wo er auch der U.S. Navy die Borchardt C93 vorführte. Die Verkaufsergebnisse waren schleppend, da die C93 vielerseits als zu groß, zu schwer und schlecht ausbalanciert kritisiert wurde.In Auswertung der Kundenwünsche entwickelte Luger in Berlin die C93 weiter. Nach Belastungs- und Hitzetests wurde ihm klar, dass ein völlig neues Konzept erstellt werden musste, aus dem der später legendär gewordene Kniegelenkverschluss entstand. Die neuartige Waffe wurde von den großen Militärmächten zunächst zurückgewiesen, einerseits aus Kostengründen, andererseits weil man sie als zu kompliziert für den Feldgebrauch einschätzte. Der Durchbruch erfolgte, nachdem die Schweizer Armee Lugers Entwurf bestellte und als erstes Militär einführte und zwar als "Modell 1900" im Kaliber 7,65 mm Parabellum.

        A VIEW OF THE ART OF COLONIZATION, WITH PRESENT REFERENCE TO THE BRITISH EMPIRE; IN LETTERS BETWEEN A STATESMAN AND A COLONIST.

      London. . 1849 - xxiv,512pp. plus 6pp. of ads and errata slip. Modern half calf and marbled boards, leather label. Very good. A classic work in the theory of colonization, the culmination of Wakefield's attempt at a theory of colonization based upon scientific principles. His ideas influenced colonial officials and practices in Canada, Australia and New Zealand, and in the latter place Wakefield was instrumental in establishing a permanent British colony. "The importance of Wakefield's achievements in colonial matters can hardly be overestimated. The tangible fruits of his labours are the least part of their result, for all subsequent colonial development has followed the direction of his thought" - DNB. FERGUSON 5235. DNB XX, pp.449-52.

Moigno's letter to Brett, written the year before Brett laid his first submarine cable, asks Brett for news of his current researches ("N'avez-vous rien de nouveau Å• m'apprendre? Quand ferez-vous une nouvelle expérience?") and asks Brett to supply him with an electric battery for a M. Soleil ("M. Soleil n'ose pas me dire qu'il a absolument besoin de la pile, mais je m'en aperçois chaque jour. Pourriez vous fixer Å• peu prčs l'époque Å• laquelle vous pourrez la rendre"). Brett's response, written on the blank recto of the address leaf, says that he will be in Lille shortly and will meet with Moigno in person. Origins of Cyberspace 177.

        GROUP OF NINE POLITICAL BROADSIDES RELATING TO THE 1848 REVOLUTIONS IN GERMANY].

      Berlin. 1848-1849. - Nine broadsides, various sizes. Folded. Some wrinkling and chipping. One broadside split along central fold. Light tanning and foxing. About very good. Nine German political broadsides addressing aspects of the 1848 Revolution in Prussia. Along with citizens of several European countries, German citizens in a number of states rose up in the spring of 1848 to demand more democratic government and a unified Germany. In Prussia, protestors confronted the King, Frederick William IV demanding parliamentary elections and a free press. Several days later, a prolonged street battle between demonstrators and the Prussian army left over two hundred dead, and the King agreed to the formation of a Constitutional Assembly. By the end of the year, however, the body was unable to agree upon a functioning constitution, and Frederick William was able to regain almost all of his authority by the middle of 1849. The vast majority of broadsides present in this group express the revolutionary perspective. They put forth ideas for the prospective new constitution, impugn the monarch and the ruling classes, and issue calls to arms to the Prussian people to protect their country and their fellow brothers and citizens. One broadside prints a satire of army officers among the revolutionary forces; another publishes Frederick William's rejection of the imperial crown offered to him by the failing National Assembly in May, 1849, of which only three copies are recorded in OCLC. Fascinating and ephemeral propaganda from a period of great upheaval in Central Europe.

        The Coffee Shop

      London: F. G. Moon, lithographed by Louis Haghe, 1849. unframed. Excellent condition, conservatorially cleaned. Original colours, no modern additional colouring. Half folio (approximately 10 x 14 inches exclusive of margins). Original tinted lithograph David Roberts RA (24 October 1796 – 25 November 1864) was a Scottish painter. He is especially known for a prolific series of detailed lithograph prints of Egypt and the Near East that he produced from sketches he made during long tours of the region (1838–1840). These and his large oil paintings of similar subjects made him a prominent Orientalist painter. He was elected as a Royal Academician in 1841. In 1824, he exhibited another view of Dryburgh Abbey at the British Institution and sent two works to the first exhibition of the newly formed Society of British Artists. In the autumn of 1824 he visited Normandy. His paintings based on this trip began to lay the foundation of his reputation; one of them, a view of Rouen Cathedral, sold for 80 guineas. While he built his reputation as a fine artist, Roberts's stage work had also been commercially successful. Commissions from Covent Garden included the sets for the London premiere of Mozart's Die Entführung aus dem Serail (The Abduction from the Seraglio) in 1827, scenery for a pantomime depicting the naval victory of Navarino, and two panoramas that he executed jointly with Stanfield. During the second part of the 1820s, and in addition to English and Scottish scenes, Roberts painted views of prominent buildings in France and the Low Countries including Amiens, Caen, Dieppe, Rouen, Antwerp, Brussels and Ghent, sometimes making several paintings of the same scene with only minor variations. By 1829 he was working full-time as a fine artist. That year, he exhibited the Departure of the Israelites from Egypt, in which his style first became apparent. In 1831, the Society of British Artists elected him as their president. J.M.W. Turner managed to persuade him to abandon scene painting and devote himself to becoming a full-time artist. Roberts set sail for Egypt on 31 August 1838, a few years after Owen Jones. His intent was to produce drawings that he could later use as the basis for the paintings and lithographs to sell to the public. Egypt was much in vogue at this time, and travellers, collectors and lovers of antiquities were keen to buy works inspired by the East or depicting the great monuments of ancient Egypt. Roberts made a long tour in Egypt, Nubia, the Sinai, the Holy Land, Jordan and Lebanon. Throughout, he produced a vast collection of drawings and watercolour sketches. Muhammad Ali Pasha received Roberts in Alexandria on 16 May 1839, shortly before his return to the UK. He later reproduced this scene, apparently from memory, in Volume 3 of Egypt & Nubia. 1839 he was elected an associate and in 1841 a full member of the Royal Academy; and in 1858 he was presented with the freedom of the city of Edinburgh. The last years of his life were occupied with a series of views of London from the Thames. He had executed six of these, and was at work upon a picture of St Paul's Cathedral as seen from Ludgate Hill, when he died suddenly. He collapsed on Berners Street on the afternoon of 25 November 1864 and died at home that evening. The symptoms, described as apoplexy in most histories, were those of a stroke. He was buried at West Norwood Cemetery -wikipedia.

        A Second Visit to the United States of North America?in Two Volumes

      John Murray, London 1849 - First Edition. xii, 368; xii, 385 pp. 2 vols. 12mo. In September of 1845 Lyell returned to America, and after a trip to Maine and the mountains of New Hampshire, travelled extensively through the South. He stayed for two weeks on a Georgia plantation on the Altamaha River, crossed that state partly by handcar in order to collect rocks and fossils in the grade cuts along the way, went to Claiborne on the Alabama River where he collected more fossils, then to Montgomery and Mobile along the Alabama, Mobile, Tombigbee, and Black Warrior Rivers. From Mobile he went up the Tombigbee River to Tuscaloosa to visit the Alabama coal field, continuing by steamboat to New Orleans, where Lyell made an expedition to the mouth of the Mississippi River to study the growth of the delta. From there he went up the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers by steamboat, then overland to Philadelphia. After a quick trip to Richmond, Virginia to re-examine the coal deposits there, he sailed from Boston to Liverpool on June 1, 1846. "Lyell's description of the coastal islands of the southeastern coast, erosion, topography, and fossils in Georgia and Alabama are an important contribution?, while his detaled observations of the Mississippi Valley from the delto to the mouth of the Ohio River equal or excell the accounts of other travelers?" -- Clark.

        Carta Topografica della Lombardia e dei Ducati di Parma, Piacenza e Modena - Carta Topografica della Venezia

      Lombardia - Veneto - Emilia 1849 - Le due carte sono una riproduzione "pirata" di alcune carte austriache dell'Italia Settentrionale. Furono realizzate nell'Ufficio Topografico del Corpo di Stato Maggiore piemontese e sono composte da fogli di mm 467x540. Per la prima, composta da 30 fogli applicati su tela a stacchi (misura complessiva di mm 4200x2700), vengono messe insieme la carta del "Governo della Lombardia", e quella del Ducato di Modena e dei Ducati di Parma e Piacenza; mentre nella seconda, composta da 17 fogli applicati su tela a stacchi (misura complessiva di mm 2800x2160), viene riprodotta una parte della carta del "Governo di Venezia".Le due carte coprono l'intera area settentrionale da Novara a Gorizia e furono realizzate per le campagne militari contro l'Austria del 1849. Apparentemente mancherebbe il foglio D9 ma non è stato possibile fare il confronto con altri esemplari perché, data la sua particolare rarità, non ne sono stati reperiti altri oltre a quello posseduto dall'Istituto Geografico Militare che è descritto in 44 fogli mentre il nostro ne ha 47 + 1 di assieme.Bibliografia: IGM 1934, p. 239; Ass.

        Noyesism Unveiled: A History of the Sect Self-Styled Perfectionist s; with a Summary View of their Leading Doctrines.

      Brattleboro: by the Author, 1849. Octavo, a fine copy in blind-stamped publisher's cloth, gilt title on spine. First edition: a lurid denunciation of John Humphrey Noyes's famous American utopian community at Putney.Noyes was the charismatic founder of the 'Perfectionist' community in Putney Vermont. Already suspect to Church authorities, Noyes's belief that the Second Coming had taken place was controversial, and his rejection of monogamy in favour of a rigorously controlled 'complex' of marriages, infamous.Noyesism Unveiled, by the otherwise unknown writer Hubbard Eastman, resident of Putney, was one of the key texts designed, as Eastman admitted with alliterative elan, to 'exhibit the pernicious principles propagated by Mr. Noyes and his coadjutors.' Indeed, the outraged locals did compel the Perfectionists to move, which led to the founding of the famous community in Oneida, New York. Oneida flourished for over thirty years, and although it continued to be accused of free love and heathenism, it quickly solidified into a reasonably strict and regimented society, famous for unisex outfits, eugenics, and regular 'criticism sessions' in which congregants were publically humiliated for misdemeanours.

        (Pierers) Universal-Lexikon der Gegenwart und Vergangenheit oder neuestes encyclopädisches Wörterbuch der Wissenschaften, Künste und Gewerbe bearbeitet von mehr als 300 Gelehrten, herausgegeben von H. A. Pierer, 3. Auflage (Vierte Ausgabe), 17 Bände Halbl

      Altenburg, H. A. Pierer, 1849 - 1852. Dritte Auflage (Vierte Ausgabe). Vollständiges Grundwerk in 17 Bänden. Schwarze Original-Halblederbände mit goldgeprägten Rückentiteln und aufwendiger goldgeprägter Biedermeier-Ornamentik; dreiseitiger marmorierter Farbschnitt. Monumentales enzyklopädisches Werk mit mehr als 300.000 Stichworten auf ca. 16.000 Seiten (die etwa zeitgleich erschienene 8. Brockhaus-Auflage umfasste demgegenüber lediglich 12.000 Stichworte). Diese dritte Auflage war im Wesentlichen ein Neudruck der zweiten Auflage mit lediglich geringfügigen Aktualisierungen. Die 34 Bände (zu je 30 Bogen) der zweiten Auflage wurden hier in kompakterer Form zu 17 Bänden (zu je 60 Bogen) zusammengefaßt, der Druck auf hochwertigerem Papier vorgenommen. Als Herausgeber des Werkes fungierten nunmehr die Pierer-Söhne Eugen (1823 - 1890), Viktor (1826 - 1855) und Alfred (1836 - 1901). Was im Seemann-Verzeichnis (Bibliotheca Lexicorum, S. 454 f.) zur zweiten Pierer-Auflage vermerkt ist, gilt also gleichermaßen für das Nachfolgeformat: \"Durch das moderne Konzept (erstes Lexikon mit ausführlichen Benutzerhinweisen, ausgezeichnete Stichwort- und Informationsselektion, neuartiger kurzer Lexikonstil, übersichtliche Aufmachung) wurde das Werk zu einem Markstein in der Lexikographie . Die verweistechnische Infrastruktur dieses Werkes war ihrer Zeit weit voraus und steht im 19. Jahrhundert ohne Beispiel da.\" Da das Pierer-Lexikon trotz seiner überragenden, die Konkurrenzausgaben der größeren Häuser Brockhaus und Meyer übertreffenden Qualität wegen eher rückständiger Vertriebsmethoden in vergleichsweise geringer Auflagenhöhe erschien, sind vor allem die frühen Auflagen dieses unter Fachleuten hochgeschätzten Lexikons heute nur noch äußerst selten, gut erhaltene, dekorative Exemplare kaum noch anzutreffen. Alle Bände in gutem, unversehrtem Zustand. Buchrücken allenfalls partiell leicht berieben, Goldprägungen noch gut zur Geltung kommend; Deckelbezüge partiell etwas beschabt; eine Ecke leicht angeknickt. Seiten überwiegend sauber, partiell leicht fleckig bzw. gebräunt. In toto schönes Exemplar dieser aufwendig gestalteten, repräsentativen Biedermeier-Ausgabe. Weitere Fotos auf der Homepage des Antiquariats (bitte Art.-Nr. auf der Angebotsseite in das Suchfeld eingeben). Ich biete zurzeit unter der Artikelnummer SB-14200 einen Bilder-Atlas zur 2.

        Manuscript leaf from Cape Cod

      1849 - Single sheet measuring 7 1/2 inches by 9 3/4 inches. In brown ink with pencil annotations and strikethroughs. This is a section of Thoreau's working notes from his visit to Cape Cod in 1849, and the text touches on a comparison of land transportation to the expediency of the sea as a means of getting places. At one point, Thoreau muses, "A sleigh is never seen at least it's a great novelty, on the Cape the snow being either absorbed by the sand or blown into drifts." After a paragraph about fences, the manuscript closes on a full sentence about Provincetown Harbor, "which as well as the greater part of the Bay, and an indefinite expanse of the ocean, we overlooked from our perch, is deservedly famous." The published text, which was released posthumously in 1865, varies from this manuscript version. The leaf is set into a paper window mount and accompanied by a small black & white photographic print showing a beach dune. Matted and attractively framed. Faint crease and slight separation along old horizontal crease with no loss. Fine.

        Mardi: and a Voyage Thither

      1849. First Edition . MELVILLE, Herman. Mardi: and a Voyage Thither. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1849. Two volumes. Octavo, original blind-stamped green cloth gilt, yellow endpapers. Housed in custom slipcase and chemises. $5000.Preferred first American edition of MelvilleÂ’s third novel, in original cloth.When Melville was writing Mardi he apparently intended it to be the third in the series of South Seas adventures that included Typee (1846) and Omoo (1847). “But during the composition process his intentions changed,” effecting a key transformation as Melville shifted “from entertainer to truth tellerÂ… [and the] sea yarn turned into allegorical romance” (Baym, “MelvilleÂ’s Quarrel with Fiction”). Though initially praised by some for images that stretch “before us like a new world,” Mardi disappointed its public and Melville was pressured to return to a more straightforward style (New York Evening Mirror). Yet it is in Mardi that Melville reveals “the first blossoming of the intellectual growth and spiritual searching that would shape his later works” (Life and Works). This is the most desirable first American edition, set from MelvilleÂ’s manuscript and published mid-April 1849. Given 19th-century copyright law and attempts to avoid piracy, the first English edition was issued, as usual, several weeks before. However, the London issue was set not from manuscript but from proofs of the American edition— therefore it is one step removed from this more valued first American issue. Second rear fly-leaf in Volume I excised (as usual), with eight pages of ads at rear of Volume II. BAL 13658 (type A cloth). Owner signature in Volume II. Bookplates.Usual light foxing, rubbing to endpapers (more in Volume I). Exceptional original cloth in about-fine condition, with a few small chips to spines, gilt very bright. A beautiful copy.

        Hadjar Silsilis

      London., 1849. May 1st 1847. Size: 425 × 605 mm. Lithograph with additional colour. Fine condition. Roberts was the first independent, professional British artist to travel so extensively in the Near East. His tour in 1838-9 produced 272 sketches, a panorama of Cairo and three full sketchbooks, enough material to "serve me for the rest of my life" (Roberts, eastern journal, 28 Jan 1839). Over the next decade he made "a series of intire new drawings" for the large coloured lithographs executed by Louis Haghe for The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt & Nubia, which was originally published by subscription, 1842-9. No publication before this had presented so comprehensive a series of views of the monuments, landscape, and people of the Near East. "Robert's Holy Land was one of the most important and elaborate ventures of nineteenth-century publishing, and it was the apotheosis of the tinted lithograph" (Abbey, Travel). These lithographs were originally published in twenty parts, most parts containing six plates, the price for each part with coloured plates (the most expensive state) being 3 guineas.
