        Painting of a Coved Ceiling by Giulio Romano in the Palazzo Vecchio at Mantua

      - A wonderfully detailed chromolithograph by Lewis Gruner measuring from his book ‘Specimens of Ornamental Art Selected from the Best Models of the Classical Epochs’ published in London by Thomas M'Lean in 1850. This print measures approximately 19.5” x 25” During the 19th century, “pattern books” became popular in Europe, which gave access to decorative elements recorded from cultures all over the world. Gruner’s Specimens of Ornamental Art contains illustrations of ornamental detail found on Italian architecture from the 12th - 15th centuries. This volume is considered to be one of the finest examples of color printing, or chromolithography, from the 19th century. Overall this print is in very good condition with some light foxing/staining and a few small tears in margins.

        Paintings of a Coved Ceiling by Giulio Romano in the Palazzo Vecchio at Mantua

      [London: Thomas McLean, 1850. A superb and colorful plate from the seminal "Specimens of Ornamental Art" Ludwig Gruner designed this study of motifs of ancient and Renaissance classicism while he resided in England. There he had participated in the design of the Crystal Palace and advised Prince Albert and Queen Victoria on acquisitions for what would become the Victoria and Albert Museum. Indeed, this sumptuous work on Roman and Italian design was dedicated to Prince Albert. His bold renditions of largely forgotten Classical pictorial ideas excited a revival in interest in earlier ages and cultures and spawned Owen Jones' work on ornamental motifs generally. But Gruner's grand, striking visual quotes from Italian palaces, churches and ancient buildings resonated with the Imperial mindset of England, France and Germany and established Classicism, once again, as the appropriate mode of architecture and design for rulers. Color printed lithograph with hand-finishing.

Dr. Fisk begs to inform the ladies and gentlemen of this place, that he will give one night of pleasing and instructive amusement . . . Broadside. Woodcut illustrations. N.p.: Samuel B. Hall, n.d. [ca. 1850]. 627 x 225 mm. Small portion of one corner torn (not affecting text), some creasing, minor stains, but very good.Rare nineteenth-century American broadside advertising Dr. Fisk's traveling show offering a "pleasing and instructive" demonstration of the many and varied uses of electricity. Among the marvels promised were "a splendid railway engine . . . driven by electricity, 200 miles per hour," "electro-magnetic engines, of immense power . . . driving a variety of useful machines," and "cannons and fireworks . . . fired by electricity." The broadside also proclaims that "a medical galvanizing machine will be at work for the benefit of all," which Dr. Fisk (whom we have not been able to identify) would use to make "chickens . . . fly without heads," and "sheep that have been dead some time . . . jump and run about." The broadside has blank spaces for inserting the place and date of Dr. Fisk's performance, which have been filled in with the words "Liberty Hall (Groton [Connecticut])" and "Feb. 19" in pencil in a nineteenth-century hand.

Light toning, edges of some plates a little frayed, but very good.

(2) [with John William Mallet.] The earthquake catalogue of the British Association, with the discussion, curves, and maps, etc. . . . Being third and fourth reports. Offprint from Transactions of the British Association for the Advancement of Science (1852-58). [2], 176, [1], 118-212, 326, 136pp. 15 plates. 221 x 140 mm. Original boards, cloth spine with paper label, rebacked, one corner bent. Light toning, but very good. First Separate Editions. Mallet, an Irish engineer and inventor, was a pioneering researcher on earthquakes, and his four reports on earthquakes, published in the journals of the British Association for the Advancement of Science, represent the first scientific work on the subject. Mallet coined the term "seismology" to describe the scientific study of earthquakes, and was also responsible for the terms "epicenter," "seismic focus" (the point at which an earthquake originates), "angle of emergence," "isoseismal line" (contour or line on a map bounding points of equal intensity for a particular earthquake), and "meizoseismal area" (area of maximum earthquake damage). "He produced an experimental seismograph in 1846. Important elements of his model, which was never actually used, were incorporated in the seismograph that Luigi Palmieri made in 1855. Between 1850 and 1861 Mallet set off explosions in different locations to determine the rate of travel of seismic waves in sand (825 feet per second), solid granite (1,665 feet per second) and quartzite (1,162 feet per second). According to A. Sieberg (1924), Mallet should be considered the founder of the physics of earthquakes. . . . Mallet presented his most important seismic results in four Report[s] to the British Association (1850, 1851, 1852-54, 1858) and in four editions of the Admiralty Manual of Scientific Enquiry (1849, 1851, 1859, 1871). Between them, they contain an extensive catalog-which he prepared and debated with his son, John W. Mallet-of 6,831 earthquakes reported between 1606 B.C. and A.D. 1858 and his seismic map of the world" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). We are offering Mallet's copies of his first, second and third reports, with his corrections and emendations. Accompanying these is the Earthquake Catalogue of the British Association, which incorporates Mallet's third and fourth reports. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Paris, Ledot Ainé, um 1850. - Édouard Travi?s (1809 – 1870) kann als einer der brillantesten Tierzeichner und –illustratoren des 19. Jahrhunderts gelten. Seine Arbeiten (häufig Vögel und Insekten, aber auch andere Tiere), die er zwischen 1831 und 1866 regelmäßig im Pariser Salon ausstellte, zeigen eine bis dahin kaum erreichte Präzision und Ausdruckskraft, die auch heute noch begeistert. Original-Zeichnungen und –Aquarelle des Künstlers sind im internationalen Auktionshandel begehrt. Druckwerke bzw. Sammelwerke Travi?s‘ - wie das hier vorliegende - sind im Original heute kaum noch erhältlich. de 2000 Beide Bände in gutem Zustand: Bei Band 1 Kapitale etwas ausgefranst, oben mit leichten Anrissen, sonst sehr sauber erhalten. Bei Band 2 wurde der Rücken unter Verwendung des Original-Rückenschildes fachmännisch erneuert. Diese Arbeit ist sehr gut ausgeführt und fällt kaum ins Auge. Vorderdeckel etwas berieben und geringfügig fleckig sowie mit erkennbarem Abdruck eines runden Gegenstandes. Die Tafeln partiell geringfügig fleckig, sonst gut erhalten und ohne Läsionen. Schönes Exemplar dieses brillant gestaltetes Werkes der Tier-Illustration. Weitere Fotos auf der Homepage des Antiquariats (Rubrik: Tier-Enzyklopädien) und auf Anfrage.

        The Scarlet Letter

      Ticknor and Fields, Boston 1850 - One of 2,500 copies published of this true first edition, on 16 March 1850, according to C.E. Frazier Clark Jr.'s definitive "Nathaniel Hawthorne - A Descriptive Bibliography". Number A16.1 in Clark's bibliography and number 7600 in BAL. This copy is in the following states and sub-states, again as described by Clark: Binding: in the style of Ticknor format A. Brown bold-ribbed T cloth with blind-stamped floral device inside ruled panels on both covers. Spine gold-stamped. Cream-colored wove endpapers. The contents are listed on pp. iii-iv and there is no preface. This is a key indicator of the first edition versus the second edition, which includes a preface. The other variants between the first and second editions are also present. These consist of sixty-nine typographical and spelling errors and punctuation changes throughout the text. For example, on page 21 line 20 "reduplicate" appears instead of "repudiate." Two of these variants (pg 31 line 20 and pg 132 line 29) are not as listed but these appear to be errors in Clark's list. Page 321 is in State x1 - line 10 has presence of work-up. Page iii is in State a2 - the "N" is beneath the "r" in "according" and the "1" of "192" is out of position. Four pages of ads were inserted between the front endpapers in most copies. This copy does not have any ads. It is unclear if they were lost or if this is one of the copies that never had ads. The text block is complete, although the stitching has loosened. The leaves are clean and unmarked except for a previous owner's name, dated 1850, on the front pastedown. The boards are in good condition, with some wear at the corners. The spine is in tatters, however, with some pieces missing. It is held to the boards with transparent tape.

        Ueber eine veranderte Form des zweiten Hauptsatzes der mechanischen Wärmetheoriein" in Annalen der Physik und Chemie 93 (12) 1854: 481-506

      - FIRST EDITION of the seminal paper in which Clausius fully presents his milestone formulation of the second law of thermodynamics, namely, that "Heat can never pass from a colder to a warmer body without some other change, connected therewith, occurring at the same time." In his 1850 paper, the first on this subject, Clausius defines the relationship between work and heat and introduces the concept of "energy of a body" (equivalent to temperature), thus stating the ideas behind the first and second law of thermodynamics. This 1854 paper was the second of his works. In it, Clausius first develops the concepts of interior work, i.e. "those which the atoms of the body exert upon each other," and exterior work, i.e. "those which arise from foreign influences which the body may be exposed", which may act on a working body of fluid or gas, typically functioning to work a piston. He then discusses the three types of heat by which Q may be divided: 1. heat employed in increasing the heat actually existing in the body; 2. heat employed in producing the interior work; 3. heat employed in producing the exterior work. Building on this logic, and following his mathematical presentation of the first fundamental theorem, Clausius then presents us with the first-ever mathematical formulation of entropy. The third paper, published in 1865, invents and first uses the word 'entropy.'. CONDITION & DETAILS: Leipzig, Johann Ambrosius Bart 8vo. Beautifully rebound in half leather over marbled paper covered boards; raised bands on the spine; gilt-lettering. Two small interior library stamps. Near fine condition.

        Della Nuova Istoria. Libri sei con Note. Tradotti per la prima volta nella Italiana Lingua da Giuseppe Rossi, ed Aggiuntavi Un'Appendice Sopra Giuliano Lavoro del Chiarissimo Signor Spiridione Petrettini

      Paolo Andrea Molina, Milan 1850 - Large paper presentation copy of this Byzantine history by a hold-out pagan who often took a jaundiced view of the policies, practices and actions of the Christian rulers. As stated on the title page, this is the first published version in Italian, and that in itself is significant as scholarship was emerging from the clerical yoke which had stifled it in so many ways following the Counter-Reformation on the Italian peninsula. [iv], 316 pp. 6 full page engravings; folding map of Armenia, Media, etc. -- the area between the Black and Caspian Seas. 4to, about 30 by 21 cm, or 11 by 8 inches. A few pages at rear remain uncut. Some scattered light foxing. A little heavier on half-title. Later decorated cloth boards with unusual red sunburst-like diaper pattern, which is bound in red leather spine. Boards are of a card stock thickness and don't lay entirely flat but flatten easily when shelved. Binding is tight. More on the substance of the work: the Church for obvious reasons sought to discredit him and his history, and by the same token, he has had his proponents for challenging the received history. This version of the work is especially scarce. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Boca Tigris on the Pearl River

      Chinese, circa 1850 - Tingua and his studio Chinese, c. 1845-1855 Gouche on pith paper Framed size: 17 1/4” x 21 1/2” The studio of the artist Tingqua was perhaps the most prolific source of Chinese export painting during the nineteenth century. Located at 16 China Street, Guangzhou, the school specialized in gouache and watercolor paintings influenced by Western artistic traditions. These works became known in America primarily through the American China trader Augustine Heard, who brought a substantial collection of Tingqua paintings back to the United States in ca. 1855. These are now located at the Peabody Museum in Salem, Massachusetts. Tingqua was from a family of Chinese artists, each of whom were recognized for there skills in painting scenes suitable for the export market. His father, Guan Zuolin, often known by his western name, Spoilum, was the first identifiable artist of the Cantonese export school. These exquisite little views absolutely typify Tingqua’s style and technique. All four works display the Tingqua denotation of the sea by regular parallel lines, sometimes with ripples in the foreground. Moreover, his characteristic mannerism of representing trees as thick clusters of yellow-green leaves is amply demonstrated in his paintings of the Canton Waterfront with the U.S. Steamer “Spark” and Whampoa Anchorage with American, British and Danish Shipping. These watercolors also illustrate the diversity of countries trading in China, particularly in the former work, with the flags of the American, British, French and Danish nations displayed prominently along the skyline. Above all, Tingqua’s work is perhaps most recognized for its exquisite characterization of daily life and for its exceptional detail. The precision of the brushwork and concentration upon light effects is superb, and in each scene the importance of world trade with China is beautifully displayed.
