        [AFRICA] Puteshestvie po nizhnemu Yegiptu i vnutrennim oblastiam delty [i.e. Travel to the Lower Egypt and the Inner Regions of the Delta]

      St. Petersburg: Typ. of Yakov Trey, 1850. xii, 433 pp. Octavo. With four lithographed maps (three folding). Contemporary diced half leather with marbled paper boards, neatly re-cased using the original spine; spine with raised bands, gilt lettered title label and blind stamped library numbers. Previous owner's inscription on the half title and the title page, 19th century library stamps on the first free endpaper, p. 33, and p. 219, corners slightly bumped, occasional pencil marks in the text, otherwise a very good copy. First and only edition. Very rare (one paper copy found in Worldcat). Interesting account of a travel of the Russian doctor and criminal medical expert Artemii Rafalovich (1816-1851) to Lower Egypt on the special assignment of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs to research plague and quarantine measures undertaken by the government of Muhammad Ali of Egypt. During his travel in 1846-1848 Rafalovich visited Turkey, Egypt, Syria, Palestine, Algeria and Tunisia and conducted thorough epidemiological research. After his return he became a member of the Russian Geographical Society (1849) and of the Imperial Medical Council - the highest medical institution in Russia (1850). The book is focused on his travel in the Nile delta and the Lower Egypt up to Cairo in 1847-1848. Rafalovich describes Rosetta and Damietta distributaries of the Nile, Alexandria, barrage dams, numerous villages on the Nile banks, notes about common diseases of people and stock, hospitals and medicine in general, death rate of the local population et al. He also gives a wide overview of geography, climate, flora and fauna, economy and population of the Lower Egypt. The last chapter of the second part describes his visit to Muhammad Ali of Egypt in April 1848 - as a doctor Rafalovich was invited to examine the Khedive of Egypt who showed signs of a mental disorder (Muhammad Ali was declared senile in 1848 and died in August 1849). The maps include a large folding map of lower Egypt from Alexandria and Damietta to Cairo, plans of the old and renovated village Kafr-Ziat and a plan of the Nile barrage. Overall valuable rare piece of Russian Africana with interesting notes about anti-plague measures.

        Weekly ivory notebook.

      [England or U.S.]: [manufacturer not identified], [ca.1850]. Near miniature (4.5 x 9 cm; 1.75 x 3.5"). [6] ivory leaves and two ivory cover leaves. A delicate, handy, and erasable/reusable memorandum book, this is composed of six "leaves" of very thin ivory with the weekdays stamped in ink along the fore-edges. Sunday is not included, and this piece shows no signs of having ever borne entries.    Alison Warner of the superb special collections cataloguing department at the University of Pennsylvania notes that these objects were "used in England and America in the 18th and 19th centuries to record daily notes and memoranda after which the notes could be transferred to a more permanent form. Any notes written on the ivory leaves could be erased using various methods for removing pencil marks." Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Shakespeare's Hamlet, and => many, many elegantly well-equipped ladies and gentlemen both before and after them used similar devices to record their thoughts.    Binding: A simply decorated pewter rivet and clasp connect the six leaves within their two ivory "boards"; a pewter shield (possibly intended for monograming never accomplished) ornaments the front cover. Bound as above, some spotting on one leaf, lettering fading in a few places. => A fascinating biblio-object in very good condition.

        Die Preussische Expedition nach Ost-Asien. Nach amtlichen quellen.Berlin, the Royal Secret Court Printing-Office (R. von Decker), 1864-1873. 4 text volumes (large 8vo) & 1 atlas (70x53,5 cm; facsimile). With 48 lithographed plates and 4 lithographed folding maps. Atlas contains 60 large plates, including 20 in colour. Text in modern blue cloth; atlas in red cloth portfolio.

      - Cordier, Japonica, cols. 558-559; Howgego, 1850 to 1940, E19. First edition of an account of the so called Eulenburg Expedition (1859-1862), owing its name to the leader of the expedition, Friedrich Eulenburg (1815-1881). "With the opening of the Far East to foreign trade, Prussia sought to claim a stake in the region." (Howgego). Commissioned by Emperor Wilhelm I, the expedition's main goal was to establish economic and diplomatic relations with China, Siam and Japan. Even though several participants wrote and published accounts of the expedition (including Eulenburg himself), this one by the artist Albert Berg (1825-1884) is considered the official one. The four volumes are accompanied by one of the hundred facsimiles (no. 33) of the atlas Ansichten aus Japan China und Siam, printed in 1975 in Tokyo. The original atlas was published in 8 instalments in the years 1864 to 1872, with a total of 60 plates with views after drawings by Berg, including 20 in colour (as in the facsimile), with an explanatory text in English. The facsimile comes with a small booklet, titled Classica Japonica, with the explanation of all the plates. Very good copy, some minor foxing and browning, affecting some of the plates. Binding in good condition, except that one of the endpapers in volume 1 is detached. Facsimile in very good condition as well.

        View of New Orleans Early Nineteenth Century

      [New York, 1850. Steel printing plate (7 1/16 x 9 3/4 inches), with engraved image (5 3/16 x 8 1/8 inches), above lettered title 'View of New Orleans Early Nineteenth Century' with no engraver or publisher's name. A fascinating example of an original printing plate engraved with a wonderful view of early-nineteenth century New Orleans from the MississippiThe present image shows Jackson Square in New Orleans in its ante-bellum heyday, viewed from the Mississippi. A number of ships ply to and fro, including an early example of a paddle-boat powered by steam. The phrase 'early nineteenth century' suggests that the plate should be dated to at least the middle of the century. A 'circa 1850' date seems likely as steel-engraving as a method of illustration for topographical works was already on the wane by the late 1850s.

         Paris, ses fortifications et sa banlieue.

      Paris, Danlos, 1850. 0,77 x 1,10 m (anciennement en sections repliées, puis remis à plat et entoilé). Monumental plan de Paris divisée en 12 municipalités, dressé en 1850, orné de 30 vignettes figurant les principaux monuments de la ville, et accompagné d'une table alphabétique des rues. Le plan montre les deux murs d'enceinte de la ville, le mur des Fermiers Généraux et l'enceinte de Thiers. Le mur des Fermiers Généraux, érigé entre 1784 et 1790, n'était pas, contrairement aux enceintes précédentes, destiné à assurer la défense de la capitale mais à forcer le paiement de l'octroi dû sur les marchandises qui y entraient. Il fut détruit en 1860 lors de l'extension de Paris jusqu'à l'enceinte de Thiers. L'enceinte de Thiers, du nom de l'homme politique qui conçut le projet, fut quant à elle construite entre 1841 et 1844, à la demande de Louis-Philippe, qui souhaitait faire construire autour de la capitale une enceinte bastionnée qui rendrait la ville imprenable. Constituée de 94 bastions, elle englobait non seulement Paris mais aussi les communes environnantes : Montmartre, La Villette, Belleville, Charonne, Bercy, Auteuil, Passy, etc. Tout autour de cette enceinte, on fit construire 16 forts détachés, tous figurant sur le plan : forts de Vincennes, Charenton, Ivry, Bicêtre, Montrouge, etc. Ces forts sont représentés par des enceintes fortifiées aquarellées en brun et vert. Le plan a été dressé en 1850, soit deux ans avant le début des travaux de rénovation du baron Haussmann. Petits défauts à quelques intersections, bonne condition générale, contours aquarellés à l'époque.

        Kita-Meriken GasshÅ«koku kōshō 北米利堅合衆国考抄 [Summary on the United States of North America]; Kaei sannen kōjutsu betsudan fÅ«setsusho kiyō wakai 嘉永三年庚戌別段風説書崎陽和解 [Special News in 1850 Translated into Japanese in Nagasaki] Ohanawa Shōsuke jō kaibōsaku 小花和正助上海防策 [Proposal on Coastal Defence]....

      No date. Late Edo period. Japanese manuscript on 49 folded leaves bound in traditional four hole stab binding, patterned blue paper covers, only a small section of paper title label present, light staining lower section of leaves and on covers, some insect damage in text and on covers without significant loss. Contents are generally good. 28 x 19.5cm. This manuscript is a collection of the following three different Japanese documents:1. 北米利堅合衆国考抄 [Summary on the United States of North America].2. 嘉永三年庚戌別段風説書崎陽和解 [Special News in 1850 Translated into Japanese in Nagasaki].3. 小花和正助上海防策 [Proposal on Coastal Defence].An overall title for this collection Ibunsō 異聞叢 or Collection of Exotic Tales is written on the inside back cover.The first document 北米利堅合衆国考抄 [Summary on the United States of North America] chronicles the events during the forming and expansion of the United States of America, starting with the discovery of North America by Columbus in 1492, although strangely in this document the year given for Columbus's arrival is Meiō 2, which is 1493. This document mentions the arrival in 1845 of an American whaling ship [Manhattan] from New York to Uraga with the rescued Japanese castaways aboard though again the date is out by one year, the year given being Kōka 1 which is 1844. It also talks about the operations of many Western whaling ships near Japan. This document also discusses the geography, climate, minerals, animals, and products of the United States commenting on the many "Ariguri" or alligators as well as less surprisingly the number of steam engines and steam boats. The document ends with the arrival in Japan of Commodore Perry with the four black ships in 1853. The second document in this collection 嘉永三年庚戌別段風説書崎陽和解 [Special News in 1850 Translated into Japanese in Nagasaki] is a foreign affairs report written in 1850 presented to the Edo government. Betsudan fÅ«setsusho 別段風説書, such as these, were reports on foreign affairs made by the Dutch colonial government in Batavia which were presented to the Edo government when the Dutch ships came to Nagasaki. Since Japan was closed to most of world at this time, Betsudan fÅ«setsusho 別段風説書 functioned as an extremely important source of information on foreign affairs for the Edo government.This interesting report covers events in the Netherlands, Dutch East Indies, China, Macau, British East Indies, Europe, Egypt, and North America. The document is full of interesting pieces of world news.Some notable events include:Mention of a rumour that the United States had stated the intention of trading with Japan, predicting the visit of Commodore Perry only three years later. Report of the imperial ceremony for the Royal succession in Amsterdam on 20th April 1849;A poor harvest in Java and the measures the colonial government took to prevent starvation among the locals. Notice of the Governor of Hong Kong, Sir George Bonham, intention to visit Shanghai and Beijing to negotiate with the Chinese government to try to make them fulfil their promises. This section also includes details of British warships operating off the East Indies and near China. Notice that the Chinese Emperor, Daoguang, died in February 1850 and that the prince had succeeded the throne. Report that the Governor of Macau, João Maria Ferreira do Amaral had cancelled the Qing government's ability to collect ground rent in Macau, that he had declared Macau a Portuguese colony in June 1849 and that in retribution the Governor was attacked and assassinated on the 5th of July by Chinese men who cut his head and a hand/s off.Notice that on the 8th of June, 1849 a six month cease-fire in the war between Denmark and Germany took place. A report stating that many foreigners, especially those from Europe, were coming to California for gold.The third and last report 小花和正助上海防策 [Proposal on Coastal Defence] is a proposal to the Edo government about coastal defence by Ohanawa Shōsuke. Ohanawa Shōsuke was hatamoto, a direct retainer of the shogun part of his duties being a guard for the shogun. Ohanawa wrote this proposal as a reaction to the arrival of the American fleet in 1853 which eventually would lead to the opening up of Japan to the Western countries. He was against trade with foreign countries and argued that foreign ships be expelled. He believed that the Edo government should use this crisis as a chance to radically reform the government and recruit talented people for higher posts.

        Kita-Meriken Gassh?koku k?sh? ????????? [Summary on the United States of North America]; Kaei sannen k?jutsu betsudan f?setsusho kiy? wakai ??????????????? [Special News in 1850 Translated into Japanese in Nagasaki] Ohanawa Sh?suke j? kaib?saku ????????? [Proposal on Coastal Defence].

      No date. Late Edo period.. Japanese manuscript on 49 folded leaves bound in traditional four hole stab binding, patterned blue paper covers, only a small section of paper title label present, light staining lower section of leaves and on covers, some insect damage in text and on covers without significant loss. Contents are generally good. 28 x 19.5cm. This manuscript is a collection of the following three different Japanese documents: 1. ????????? [Summary on the United States of North America]. 2. ??????????????? [Special News in 1850 Translated into Japanese in Nagasaki]. 3. ????????? [Proposal on Coastal Defence]. An overall title for this collection Ibuns? ??? or Collection of Exotic Tales is written on the inside back cover. The first document ????????? [Summary on the United States of North America] chronicles the events during the forming and expansion of the United States of America, starting with the discovery of North America by Columbus in 1492, although strangely in this document the year given for Columbus's arrival is Mei? 2, which is 1493. This document mentions the arrival in 1845 of an American whaling ship [Manhattan] from New York to Uraga with the rescued Japanese castaways aboard though again the date is out by one year, the year given being K?ka 1 which is 1844. It also talks about the operations of many Western whaling ships near Japan. This document also discusses the geography, climate, minerals, animals, and products of the United States commenting on the many "Ariguri" or alligators as well as less surprisingly the number of steam engines and steam boats. The document ends with the arrival in Japan of Commodore Perry with the four black ships in 1853. The second document in this collection ??????????????? [Special News in 1850 Translated into Japanese in Nagasaki] is a foreign affairs report written in 1850 presented to the Edo government. Betsudan f?setsusho ?????, such as these, were reports on foreign affairs made by the Dutch colonial government in Batavia which were presented to the Edo government when the Dutch ships came to Nagasaki. Since Japan was closed to most of world at this time, Betsudan f?setsusho ????? functioned as an extremely important source of information on foreign affairs for the Edo government. This interesting report covers events in the Netherlands, Dutch East Indies, China, Macau, British East Indies, Europe, Egypt, and North America. The document is full of interesting pieces of world news. Some notable events include: Mention of a rumour that the United States had stated the intention of trading with Japan, predicting the visit of Commodore Perry only three years later. Report of the imperial ceremony for the Royal succession in Amsterdam on 20th April 1849; A poor harvest in Java and the measures the colonial government took to prevent starvation among the locals. Notice of the Governor of Hong Kong, Sir George Bonham, intention to visit Shanghai and Beijing to negotiate with the Chinese government to try to make them fulfil their promises. This section also includes details of British warships operating off the East Indies and near China. Notice that the Chinese Emperor, Daoguang, died in February 1850 and that the prince had succeeded the throne. Report that the Governor of Macau, João Maria Ferreira do Amaral had cancelled the Qing government's ability to collect ground rent in Macau, that he had declared Macau a Portuguese colony in June 1849 and that in retribution the Governor was attacked and assassinated on the 5th of July by Chinese men who cut his head and a hand/s off. Notice that on the 8th of June, 1849 a six month cease-fire in the war between Denmark and Germany took place. A report stating that many foreigners, especially those from Europe, were coming to California for gold. The third and last report ????????? [Proposal on Coastal Defence] is a proposal to the Edo government about coastal defence by Ohanawa Sh?suke. Ohanawa Sh?suke was hatamoto, a direct retainer of the shogun part of his duties being a guard for the shogun. Ohanawa wrote this proposal as a reaction to the arrival of the American fleet in 1853 which eventually would lead to the opening up of Japan to the Western countries. He was against trade with foreign countries and argued that foreign ships be expelled. He believed that the Edo government should use this crisis as a chance to radically reform the government and recruit talented people for higher posts. .

        Volksaufklärung: Biobibliographisches Handbuch, Band 3, Teil 1-4

      Gebraucht - Wie neu geringfügige Lagerspuren - ungelesen - wie neu ! - The closing volume of the bibliography enters unknown territory und records 'one of the most urgent desiderata of the new multidisciplinary enlightenment research': passing and aftermath of the enlightenment movement in German-speaking Europe up to 1850 and beyond. It presents several thousand proofs that enlightenment in the 19th century was by no means 'overcome' or even dead. After the disastrous breach caused by the French Revolution, there was still half a century in which popular enlightenment was widely spread, albeit now lacking state support while facing often massive repression. The suppression of the revolution of 1848/1849 happened at a time, when popular enlightenment was no longer mere reading material but was already on its way into the minds.
