        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. 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. Pierer-Auflage an, der gleichermaßen zur Ergänzung der 3. Auflage geeignet ist.

        Announcement from the Astor Library Association of Meeting on March 5. Washington Irving President

      , 1849. 1849. Bifolium. Addressed to Washington Irving on verso in pen. 8vo. Old folds. Bifolium. Addressed to Washington Irving on verso in pen. 8vo. IRVING'S COPY. THE BEGINNING OF NYPL. "The first meeting of the trustees came on May 20, 1848. Cogswell was appointed superintendent of the library, with authority to convene the trustees and to preside over their meetings. The name of "The Astor Library" was chosen for the institution at the second meeting on June 1. On September 28, a location was finalized for the building, what is now the East Village, Manhattan. There it was judged to be tranquil enough to be suitable for study. The lot was valued at $25,000, which sum was deducted from the $400,000 of the endowment.In January 1849 the library was incorporated and received a paragraph in the annual message of Governor Hamilton Fish. In April 1849, the trustees hired a house at 32 Bond Street for temporary custody and exhibition of the books they had purchased. The trustees stated that "all persons desirous of resorting to the library and of examining books, may do so with all the convenience which it is in the power of the trustees to afford." At this time, the total number of books in the library was estimated at over 20,000 volumes, costing $27,009.33.A German-born architect, Alexander Saeltzer - who had designed Anshe Chesed Synagogue,[1][2][3][4] - was selected as the architect for the building. He designed the building in Rundbogenstil style, then the prevailing style for public building in Germany.[5] The limitation of the cost of the building at $75,000 was stringent: the trustees wanted a building to hold 100,000 volumes at the outset, to afford convenient accommodation for annual additions, to be fireproof, and have the necessary strength; these requirements were by no means easily secured for this sum. W. B. Astor, Cogswell, and Saeltzer drew up specifications and called for bids for construction. All bids exceeded the $75,000 limit: the lowest, by contractors whose ability to finish the work was by no means satisfactorily established, amounted to $81,385.75; the highest, by thoroughly satisfactory contractors, amounted to $107,962. Saeltzer's plan was reworked, and for this plan the construction bid of $75,000, by Peter J. Bogert and James Harriot, was accepted on January 2, 1850.The cornerstone was laid on March 14, 1850, and the building completed in the summer of 1853. The limit of $75,000 proved an impossible one. William B. Astor bore the expense of $1,590 for groined arches to render the structure more secure from fire, and shelving and apparatus for heating and ventilating were paid for to the amount of $17,141.99 from surplus interest accruing from the funds while the building was in progress and from the premium realized by the advance in market value of United States bonds."

        Travailleurs et proprietaires. Par Victor Borie, ancien redacteur en chef de l'Eclaireur de l'Idre. Avec une introduction par George Sand

      Michel L?vy, 1849. In 16, pp. (4) + 136 + (2). Br. ed. muta. Ed. orig. dell'opera piu' rilevante di questo economista e studioso di cose agricole, oggi perlopiu' noto per essere stato uno degli amanti di Geoge Sand. 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'...'.

        A NEW DESCRIPTION OF OREGON AND CALIFORNIA: CONTAINING COMPLETE DESCRIPTIONS OF THOSE COUNTRIES, TOGETHER WITH THE OREGON TREATY AND CORRESPONDENCE, AND A VAST AMOUNT OF INFORMATION RELATING TO THE SOIL, CLIMATE, PRODUCTIONS, RIVERS AND LAKES, AND THE VARIOUS ROUTES OVER THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS

      Cincinnati: George Conclin, 1849. 168pp. (lacks pp.129-152). Engraved titlepage vignette. Modern three quarter morocco and cloth, spine lettered in gilt. Scattered foxing, mostly on the early and late text pages. Good. Lacks the frontis. The sixth edition (and the fifth known, as a second edition is noted as being published in 1845, but no copies are located) of the first guide to the overland trail. Hastings, a native of Mount Vernon, Ohio, was an early promoter of emigration to California. His propagandistic work played on the hopes and ambitions of emigrants, who were lured by the promise of "as much land as you want" in California. Hastings has been blamed for contributing to the Donner Party tragedy because of his promotion of a cutoff south of Salt Lake (his error was corrected). "...This is probably the most controversial of all guide books, and one of the most important early books concerning overland travel" - Mintz. Though Hastings' guide was popular in its day, any contemporary edition is scarce on the market, including the present sixth edition, with Kurutz locating only three copies (CtY, CSmH, PP). The missing pages are from the chapters 13-15, which include a description of California. Imperfect, but so was the advice. HOWES H288, "b." ZAMORANO 80, 41 (ref). GRAFF 1815 (ref). COWAN, p.270. MINTZ 215 (ref). WAGNER-CAMP 116:6. KURUTZ 320b.

        Souvenirs d'un voyage fait en Normandie et à Jersey en 1815

      96 pages Paris, [imprimerie de Plon frères], 1849, in-16, 96 pages, chagrin vert, dos à quatre faux nerfs, tranches dorées, dentelle intérieure, Ouvrage anonyme. L'auteur y raconte les souvenirs d'un voyage entrepris à la suite des évènements de 1814 et de 1815. "J'étais oisif et cette vie me déplaisait", confesse t-il. Il partit accompagné d'un abbé, L.., ancien camarade de classe. De cet abbé, on sait qu'il fut ordonné prêtre en 1820, qu'il connut un grand succès en tant que prédicateur, qu'il fut chanoine d'Orléans puis qu'il fut nommé curé d'une paroisse de Saint-Germain à Paris, jusqu'à sa mort en 1835 (note en pied des pages 39-40). Une annotation manuscrite sur une garde blanche, signée C.E.G, donne quelques renseignements supplémentaires sur l'ouvrage et son tirage: "Cet opuscule tiré à 20 exemplaires seulement, ne s'est pas vendu". Deux lettres autographes auraient été rajoutées à cet exemplaire, lettres qui n'y figurent plus, et qui auraient été de la main d'un abbé, Landrin, probablement l'abbé L... qui accompagna le narrateur au cours de sa traversée de la Normandie. Exemplaire truffé: il contient 30 dessins à la plume qui illustrent le récit avec drôlerie. Le style confine à la caricature et rappelle, dans l'inspiration, les illustrations de Daumier, Gavarni ou Henry Emy, prisées à la même époque. En outre se trouvent, in fine, 6 cartes des différentes provinces de la Normandie (Seine-et-Oise, Eure, Calvados, Manche, Orne, Eure et Loire), provenant de l'Atlas portatif de France de Perrot et Tardieu publié en 1833. Traces de découpes de feuillets à la fin: elles correspondent sans doute aux lettres de Landrin évoquées dans la note citée plus haut. Ouvrage peu courant. Frère cite une édition, parue la même année, dans le même format, mais qui ne contient que 48 pages. Trace d'un ex-libris, arraché, sur le contreplat. Accroc sur le plat supérieur, dos légèrement passé, coins usés. Rousseurs éparses. Frère II, 539.

        The history of the cholera in Exeter in 1832 Presentation copy

      London: John Churchill, 1849. Shapter, Thomas (1809-1902). The history of the cholera in Exeter in 1832. xxviii, 297, [1]pp. Folding map, text wood-engravings. London: John Churchill; Exeter: Adam Holden, 1849. 223 x 142 mm. Original blindstamped cloth, gilt-lettered spine, light wear at extremities. Fore-edges a bit frayed but very good. Presentation Copy, inscribed “From the Author” on the front pastedown; manuscript captions for the book’s illustrations in what may be the same hand. Modern bookplate. First Edition. Shapter’s history of Exeter’s 1832 cholera epidemic—part of the worldwide cholera pandemic of 1829-51—includes his “Map of Exeter in 1832 shewing the localities where the deaths caused by pestilential cholera occurred in the years 1832, 1833 & 1834,” one of the first examples of an epidemic “spot map.” “Shapter’s text and map presented a ‘topography of disease’ in which the incidence of cholera over three years was considered within the city of Exeter. Shapter recorded both mortality and morbidity across the outbreak in a chart of epidemic occurrence. He then used official mortality reports that included decedents’ street addresses to locate cholera mortality in a map of the city. A mortality ratio based on parish population was recorded in the map legend. This amounted to a spatial description of mortality data . . . mapped clusters of cholera appearing to occur more frequently in parishes along the low-lying riverbanks of the city . . . than at higher altitude away from the river where air was purer” (Koch, Disease Maps: Epidemics on the Ground, p. 156). Shapter’s map, which did not mark wells or pump locations, appeared to confirm his theory that cholera was a miasmatic disease caused by “bad air.” John Snow, whose On the Pathology and Mode of Communication of the Cholera appeared the same year as Shapter’s work, interpreted Shapter’s data differently, using it to help demonstrate the link between disease outbreaks and contaminated water sources.

        NEW YORK CITY HALL, PARK AND ENVIRONS

      New York, 1849. Tinted lithograph with additional hand-coloring, 13 1/2 x 18 1/4 inches. Mild foxing. Very good. Matted and framed. An attractive view of Broadway, New York City by famed artist John Bachmann who was, at the time, only at the beginning of a brilliant printmaking career. According to Reps, Bachmann executed two views of New York City in 1849, though Reps does not record this one. Here, Bachmann portrays Broadway in a clean and very inviting manner. "Along the broad thoroughfare moves a smart array of carriages, coaches, and fashionably-dressed pedestrians. The fountain playing in the imperfect triangle of City Hall Park had now permanently replaced the temporary one erected there during the Croton Water Celebration that took place there in 1842. Beyond the fountain is City Hall itself, admired by residents and visitors alike for its architectural splendor: a successful adaptation of French Renaissance and American colonial influences" - Deak. Bachmann's reputation as a fine artist, lithographer, and printer is assured through his work, even if only considering his New York City views. Little is known of the man himself, though he is believed to have emigrated from Germany in the 1840s, bringing with him a fully- developed style and competence unusual for the period. "No finer artist of city views worked in America than John Bachmann" - Reps. A fantastic and rare view of New York's famed City Hall, an important depiction of lower Manhattan and Broadway in the middle of the 19th century. DEAK, PICTURING AMERICA 596. STOKES, ICONOGRAPHY OF MANHATTAN ISLAND III, p.902. STOKES & HASKELL, AMERICAN HISTORICAL PRINTS, ca. 1849-E- 117, p.105. REPS, VIEWS & VIEWMAKERS, pp.160-61.

        PAPE-CARPENTIER, Marie

      Paris, Hachette 1849 - Fondation de l'Ecole Maternelle. In-8 - Paris - 1849 - demi-toile, dos lisse, titre doré - XII, 275 pages, 10 planches dépliantes- une petite auréole dans le coin supérieur droit des premiers feuillets sans gravité. Dès 1845, Marie Pape-Carpantier propose de changer la salle d'asile en « école maternelle ». En 1846, elle publie Conseils sur la direction des salles d'asile (remarqué par le ministre de l'instruction publique, l'académicien Narcisse-Achille de Salvandy). Puis elle présente son projet à son successeur, Lazare Hippolyte Carnot, (père du futur président de la république Sadi Carnot). La haute commission des études s'occupe de la réforme des salles d'asile. En effet leur nom rappelle trop la misère et l'aumône. Il sera remplacé par celui d'école maternelle. L'arrêté est signé le 28 avril 1848 par Carnot. Elle est nommée directrice de la « maison d'études » destinés aux futurs enseignants et directrices. L'objectif, semblable à celui des salles d'asile, est de répondre aux curiosités de l'enfant, d'attirer son attention sur le monde. Le but premier n'est donc pas d'en faire des petits savants puisque l'on ne pratique que l'initiation : lecture, écriture. L'enfant a besoin de s'amuser et ce lieu répond parfaitement à cela. Marie Pape-Carpentier sera directrice de l'école normale maternelle à Paris, pendant 27 ans. Le terme d'école maternelle retombe dans l'oubli jusqu'à ce que Jules Ferry alors ministre de l'Instruction publique, et son chef de cabinet, Ferdinand Buisson, influencés par Pauline Kergomard ne l'impose à nouveau en 1881 dans les lois de Jules Ferry.

      Kazan': University typ, 1849. xv, [2], 339, 149, [28], [2] pp. Octavo. With eight lithographed plans and views (e-catalogues of Russian State and Russian National libraries call for nine plates, but the e-copy from the catalogue of Russian State Library is identical to our copy; a copy from the Warsaw University calls for eight plates). Contemporary half leather with marbled paper boards and color stamped title on the spine. Ink library numbers on the title page and p.17, and library paper labels on the top of the front cover and the spine. Binding rubbed and worn, with cracks on the top and bottom of the spine, a few of first and last leaves with mild stains on corners of the pages, but overall a very good internally clean copy. First edition. Very rare. Historically important well written account of travels to Dagestan and modern Azerbaijan by a noted Russian Orientalist, Turkologist, later professor of Kazan University (1846-55) and St. Petersburg University (since 1855) Ilya Berezin (1818-1896). Shortly after his graduation from the Eastern faculty of the Kazan University with the degree of Master in Eastern Philology Berezin was sent on an extensive scientific travel to the Caucasus, Persia, Iraq, Syria, Palestine, Egypt and Turkey, which lasted for over three years (1842-45). This book gives a detailed account of the first part of his travel - in the southern provinces of the Russian Empire: Dagestan and the Transcaucasia (modern Azerbaijan). Berezin went from Astrakhan to Tarki (now a suburb of Makhachkala), and from there to Derbent (Dagestan), Quba, Baku, Salyan, Lankaran and Astara (Transcaucasia). He gives a detailed and valuable description of the history and geography of the region, overviews Russian expeditions to the Caspian Sea, talks about Muslim antiquities and architecture, local people, their occupations, manners and customs, language, food; notes about the Caucasian War (1817-1864) and rebel forces of Imam Shamil; special chapters are dedicated to Derbent and Baku and describe their history, architecture, population, trade and industries at length. 150-page comments refer to numerous sources in Persian, Arabic, Turkish, French and Latin, used by Berezin. The supplements include tables of meteorological observations; tables of distances between Tarki and Astara, from cities of Dagestan and Transcaucasia to Saint Petersburg, Moscow and Tiflis; statistical tables showing population, buildings, industries, churches, mosques etc. of Derbent and Baku; alphabetic catalogue of the library of a Baku bibliophile; alphabetic index of geographical names et al. The illustrations include a plan of the Derbent Wall; two views of Derbent (the mosque and the Kyrkhlyar cemetery); general plan of the fortress and the city of Derbent; plan of the Palace of the Shirvanshahs in Baku; two leaves of facsimile of inscriptions on the walls and tombstones in Derbent; and a map of the mouths of the Kura River and the Ghizil-Agaj bay of the Caspian Sea. Second revised and enlarged edition of the book was published in Kazan in 1850 (in three parts, with different numeration, but under one title page). Second part of the account of Berezin's travels titled ''Travel to the Northern Persia'' was published in Kazan in 1852. Only two paper copies found in Worldcat (Leiden University, Warsaw University).

        Autograph Letter Signed.

      This author and socialite made up for the accident of her ultra-privileged birth through religion, philanthropy and advocacy of many social causes. ALS, 2pp (lettersheet), 4" X 6", Lenox, MA, 31 October n.y. Addressed to Mr. Riis (likely Jacob A. Riis, 1849-1914, pioneering Danish-American muckraking journalist and social reformer).Very good. Intriguing content concerning Sloane's do-goodism: "I have decided to act upon your suggestion and entrust the monthly delivery of the aged couple's Rent to a member of the A.B.C. I doubt if I will be able to go myself, but I am sure one of the men will be very happy to visit the old people in their home.... I agree with you in thinking that it is more blessed to give than to receive...." Boldly penned on "Elm Court / Lenox" letterhead, the famous shingle-style home her parents had built around 1885. One of Riis' well-known tenement photographs depicts two elderly sisters seated in their New York apartment, the caption usually noting that in 1895 Riis persuaded Emily Vanderbilt Sloane to pension these two elderly sisters named Gribbon. This outstanding letter is without doubt written to Jacob Riis -- and chances are strong it pertains to this same or some similar charitable act that he convinced Sloane to underwrite.
