        Public Squares, Parks, and Places in the City of New York

      D.T. Valentine, 1850. unbound. Map. Lithograph. Image measures 8 3/4 x 21 7/8" This map, compiled by Francis Nicholson in 1838, assembles 17 squares, parks, and public places in New York onto a single sheet. Locations include Battery, Bowling Green, Duane Park, The Park [at City Hall], Hudson Square, Five Point Park, Abingdon Square, Washington Square, Tompkins Square, Union Place, Stuyvesant Square, Bloomingdale Square, Gramercy Park, Madison Square, Hamilton Square, Manhattan Square, Observatory Place and Mount Morris. Each map shows the layout of the surrounding streets ad give's the place's dimensions and acreage. This edition of the map was lithographed by H.A. Robinson in the mid 19th-century and published in the 1850 edition of the "Manual of The Corporation of the City of New York." It is in good condition with minor browning at the folds. The left outside margin is incomplete but does not interfere with the image. D.T. Valentine (1801-1869) served as the Deputy to the Clerk of the Common Council for thirty-seven years and began publishing the Manuals in 1841. The Manuals were directories of extensive historical and contemporary records of New York, richly illustrated with maps, lithographs, and engravings. This unusual yet charming maps serves as a reminder of the rapid taming of nature that accompanied New York's 19th century industrialization and development.

        Neuer Anti-Kant oder Prüfung der Kritik der reinen Vernunft nach den in Bolzano's Wissenschaftslehre niedergelegten Begriffen. Bautzen: A. Weller, 1850.

      - Very rare first edition of Bernhard Bolzano's radical criticisms of Kant, produced in collaboration with his friend and pupil Franz Prihonsky and published shortly after his death. Bolzano was born in 1781, the year in which Kant's Critique of Pure Reason was published, and died in 1848, the year of Gottlob Frege's birth. As a 'Kant & Bolzano' conference announcement put it (University of Oldenburg, 2011), these dates are highly symbolic because Bolzano’s work is an essential link between transcendental and analytic philosophy. 'The value of New Anti-Kant rests at once in the fabulous richness of Bolzano's own theories as well as the diligence and insight with which he approached Kant's Critique. After a 'Preface' that motivates the need for such a project, the volume begins with an 'Introduction' that contains a concise and very helpful summary of those of Bolzano's doctrines that are most relevant to the criticisms that follow. The main part, the 'Treatise', consists of a systematic examination of the entirety of the first Critique. Towards the end, it also engages in an extensive discussion of the moral theory found in Kant's other writings. Throughout [it] alternates between extremely economical, well-articulated little digests of Kant's main doctrines following the order in which they appear in the Critique, followed by 'Objections' and 'Remarks' in which Prihonsky deftly recapitulates the essence of Bolzano's concerns with the Kantian philosophy . Beyond the originality and intelligence of its critical perspective, New Anti-Kant thus has the merit of offering an exhaustive discussion of Kant's philosophy, one which devotes its attention to both the doctrines of the Critique that have traditionally been of most interest to Kant scholars as well as those doctrines that are too often overlooked. By thoughtfully engaging with the full scope of Kant's views, New Anti-Kant also introduces readers to Bolzano's own positions in both theoretical and practical philosophy, as well as his philosophy of religion (Sandra Lapointe and Clinton Tolley, 'Introduction' to the Palgrave Macmillan English edition, 2014). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 12mo, xxiv, 233, [1] pp., rebound in modern half cloth with the original printed front wrapper laid down, title-page with a small paper flaw and lightly browned at outer edge, otherwise internally fresh and clean, without stamps, inscriptions or any other marks, a very good copy.

        A perspective view of the Thames and the Thames Tunnel. History of the Thames Tunnel.

      Azulay, s. d. (vers 1850)., Thames Tunnel (Londres), - Paper peepshow sous chemise de 200 x 170 mm., 4 planches gravées et coloriées montées en accordéon, premier plan avec 3 trous de vision, 2 plans intermédiaires découpés avec figures rapportées et 1 plan de fond, le titre suivant "A full account of the Thames Tunnel " est imprimé sur papier bleu au verso du premier plat, reliure demi-toile d'éditeur, étiquette de titre imprimée sur le plat, plats défraîchis avec manques de papier marbré, premier plan taché en marge sinon bon état. Ces fragiles jouets de papier sont apparus en 1825 et ont connu un succès important jusqu'aux années 1870. La construction d'un double tunnel sous la Tamise commencée en 1825 et terminée en 1843 avec, la même année, la visite de la jeune Reine Victoria, fournit un sujet de choix pour la production de peepshows vendus aux nombreux visiteurs du tunnel. En 1865 le tunnel fut racheté par la East London Railway Company et transformé en tunnel ferroviaire. Le premier plan montre l'arrivée de la Reine, le trou supérieur dévoile l'intense circulation de bateaux sur la Tamise, les deux trous inférieurs nous montrent la double perspective des deux tunnels jumelés [Hyde, Paper peepshows, 249].

        Rio de Janeiro - Sabatier, c. 1850.

      RARE MID 19TH CENTURY VIEW OF RIO DE JANEIRO?Rio-Janeiro?. Lithography by L?on Jean-Babtiste Sabatier and Lauvergue after Sabatier and Bayot, printed at Cattier in Paris for Bulla & Jouy and Ernest Gambart around 1850. Coloured by a later hand. Size (view): 40 x 55,5 cm (sheet: 63 x 79,5 cm).View of Guanabara Bay on May 6, 1843, before princess Francisca, sister of Emperor Pedro II of Brazil, and her husband, Fran?ois d?Orl?ans, Prince of Joinville, board the ?Belle Poule?. The couple married in Rio de Janeiro on 1 May 1843 and headed for France in the days thereafter. (Read more about the Marriage Princess Francisca and Prince de Joinville, May 1843)The 60-gun frigate Belle Poule (1828?1888), famous for bringing back the remains of Napol?on from Saint Helena to France in 1840, was under command of the Prince of Joinville.19th-century Empire of Brazil, until 1822 a colony of the Kingdom of Portugal, was under the rule of Emperors Dom Pedro I and his son Dom Pedro II. Unlike most of the neighbouring Hispanic American republics, Brazil had political stability, vibrant economic growth, constitutionally guaranteed freedom of speech, and respect for civil rights of its subjects, albeit with legal restrictions on women and slaves.The monarchy managed to bring peace and stability to the country, which eventually became an emerging international power. With prosperity and economic development came an influx of European immigration, including protestants and jews, although Brazil remained mostly catholic. Slavery, which had initially been widespread, was restricted by successive legislation until its final abolition in 1888. Brazilian visual arts, literature and theatre developed during this time of progress. Although heavily influenced by European styles that ranged from Neoclassicism to Romanticism, each concept was adapted to create a culture that was uniquely Brazilian.Until the early years of the 20th century, Rio de Janeiro was largely limited to the neighbourhood now known as the historic city centre, on the mouth of Guanabara Bay.L?on Jean-Babtiste Sabatier (? - 1887) was a French painter, engraver and draftsman who made a number of picturesque views. He exhibited at the Paris Salon from 1827 to 1870, obtaining a bronze medal in 1839. An other view by Sabatier can be found here.Price: ?1.750,-.

        THE RIGHTS AND DUTIES OF MASTERS. A SERMON PREACHED AT THE DEDICATION OF A CHURCH, ERECTED IN CHARLESTON, S.C., FOR THE BENEFIT AND INSTRUCTION OF THE COLOURED POPULATION

      Charleston, S.C.: Walker & James, 1850. 51pp. Original printed wrappers. Wrappers somewhat soiled, with slight paper loss. Dampstaining and foxing throughout. Some further paper loss to several interior leaves, not affecting text. Vertical fold. Card attached to final leaf verso with author's gift inscription. Good. A religious and scriptural justification of slavery from a widely read South Carolina pastor. James Henley Thornwell was a Presbyterian minister in Columbia, S.C., who also served as the president of South Carolina College before the Civil War, and edited the "Southern Presyterian Review." Through the use of Christianity to justify slavery, he became known by some as the "Calhoun of the Church," and was one of the more well-known religious defenders of slavery in print. "The conservative, southern, Christian belief system was well represented in the philosophy of James Henley Thornwell. A brilliant scholar, well-loved teacher, and influential churchman, Thornwell became the acknowledged spokesman for his colleagues, producing sermons and essays respected not for the newness of the ideas so much as for the erudition, clarity, and persuasiveness of argument." - Westerkamp. The sermon contained in this pamphlet emphasizes the benevolent nature of the relationship between Christian master and slave, and asserts slavery as a religious necessity: "It is a natural evil which God has visited upon society, because man kept not his first estate, but fell, and, under the Gospel, is turned, like all other natural evils, into the means of an effective spiritual discipline."

        Nijmegen panorama - Pieter Caspar Christ, ca. 1850.

      GROOT PANORAMA VAN NIJMEGEN?De stad Nijmegen ? La ville de Nimegue?, lithografie op 4 bladen vervaardigd ca. 1850 door C.A. Vieweg naar een tekening van Pieter Caspar Christ. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 16 x 194 cm.De Nijmeegse kunstenaar Pieter Caspar Christ (1822 - 1888) maakte schilderijen, tekeningen en prenten van landschappen en stadsgezichten. Hij woonde en werkte aan de zuidelijke Veluwezoom (eerst in Nijmegen, daarna in Arnhem).Zijn bekendste werk is dit panorama van Nijmegen gezien vanaf het aan de overzijde van de Waal gelegen Lent.Het complete Waalfront van de stad is weergegeven. Van links naar rechts zien we de Belv?d?re toren; het Valkhofpark en de Heidense Kapel (uit de 11de-eeuw); De Veerpoort; de kantoren van de Verenigde Nijmeegse Stoomboot Maatschappijen; de Kraanpoort aan de Grotestraat; de stedelijke hijskraan waarmee schepen werden geladen en gelost, aangedreven door een tredmolen; de Sint Stevens Kerk; de Meipoort; de Sint Stevenspoort; en de haven met molen. Op de rivier zijn de gierpont, zeilschepen en raderboten nauwkeurig afgebeeld.De stedelijke verlichting bestond tot midden negentiende eeuw uitsluitend uit olielantaarns, vanaf 1850 gaat men over op straatverlichting op uit steenkolen bereid pijp-gaz. De stad barstte in die tijd uit haar voegen. Er was geen ruimte voor uitbreiding en er waren weinig middelen van bestaan terwijl het inwonertal bleef groeien. De roep om afbraak van de wallen en aansluiting op het landelijke spoorwegnet werd steeds luider. De spoorwegverbinding naar Kleef kwam er in 1865. In 1874 wordt de vesting opgeheven en er werd rigoureus gesloopt. Van de middeleeuwse wallen bleven slechts enkele stukken muur, twee bastions en de kruittoren gespaard. Het aangezicht van de stad zoals we dat hier zien, verandert dan sterk.Prijs: ?6.500,- (incl. lijst).

        The Scarlet Letter, A Romance

      Boston: Ticknor, Reed and Fields, 1850. First edition, first issue, of Hawthorne's historical romance, one of 2500 copies published in March 1850. In his opening essay, "The Custom-House," Hawthorne invokes the "persecuting spirit" of his Puritan ancestors, and imagines a tightly plotted revenge fantasy set in the wilderness of seventeenth-century Massachusetts: "By thy first step awry, thou didst plant the germ of evil; but, since that moment, it has all been a dark necessity." Hester Prynne on the scaffold, branded with her scarlet A, remains one of the immediately recognizable icons of American literature. When Hawthorne read the final chapter aloud to his wife Sophia, he reported: "It broke her heart and sent her to bed with a grievous headache - which I look upon as triumphant success!" He was pessimistic, however, about the novel's prospective sales, and was taken aback when The Scarlet Letter exhausted its first print run in only ten days. The publishers had already redistributed much of the original type, and had to reset the final third of the book for the second edition, which appeared in April. BAL 7600. A near-fine unrestored copy of an American classic, with all first issue points, much brighter than usually found. Octavo: 1-4, i-iv, 1-322, [3]. Original blind-stamped brown cloth, spine lettered in gilt, cream endpapers. Four pages of publisher's advertisements dated March 1, 1850, inserted before title page. Title printed in black and red. Offsetting from bookmark to pages 8 and 9, lightest edgewear and spotting to binding. Housed in a custom clamshell box.

        A Harlot's Progress

      Ernst Ludwig Riepenhausen 1850 - Six engravings. Image 6.5 x 8.5". Sheet measures 10.5 x 14.75" Determined to prove that eighteenth-century society could witness tragedy and moral catharsis in their own time and city, rather than only in paintings of Ancient Greece or the New Testament, William Hogarth created this modern moral series about a naïve young woman who is seduced into prostitution and suffers the terrible consequences for her transgressions. Throughout the series, Hogarth meant to highlight the many temptations and hypocrisies prevalent in urban life. No one is without blame, neither the protagonist nor the city and religious authorities who are in charge of regulating crime and sin, and therefore, all of these figures appear and are critiqued in Hogarth's renowned satire. In the first plate, young Moll Hackabout has recently arrived from the country and is immediately praised for her fresh beauty by a prosperous-looking matron. Unfortunately for her, the matron is Mother Needham, a notorious bawd in eighteenth-century London. Moll's prospective fallen virtue is foreshadowed by the minister's horse knocking over some buckets as two men--a rake and a pimp--watch the scene. The second plate shows Moll as a pampered courtesan and mistress to a wealthy Jewish merchant. Unbeknownst to Moll's benefactor, her lover is sneaking out the backdoor struggling to carry his sword and clothing. Moll attempts to distract the merchant by knocking over the table sending the tea-set crashing to the floor. In the third plate, Moll now works as a common prostitute in Convent Garden. All around the room are scattered souvenirs of Moll's various lovers, which include a wig box above Moll's bed belonging to James Dalton, a well-known highwayman who was eventually hanged in 1730. In the background, Justice John Gonson, a social reformer and famous raider of disorderly houses, enters with his bailiffs to arrest Moll for prostitution. During the time that "A Harlot's Progress" was published, there was a new civil enthusiasm for cracking down on prostitution and here, Hogarth mocks the inept system which did not prevent Moll's seduction but still punishes her for her misdeeds. The fourth plate finds Moll in prison, forced to beat hemp for rope-making. Another woman fondles Moll's fabric and winks at the viewer while Moll also gazes at us in despair. Many of the other prisoners have been incarcerated for prostitution and debt.The fifth print finds Moll released from prison and now dying of syphilis in a dingy room beside her young son. All seems lost as her physicians dumbly argue over their prescriptions while Moll's attendant attempts to protect her from any more of their purgative treatments. In the final plate of the series, all of Moll's "friends" gather around her coffin. However, most of the mourners are more preoccupied with themselves or each other than with their friend's unfortunate passing. Here, Hogarth gives the viewer little comfort, as a young prostitute looks upon Moll in her casket in a clear allusion to her own fate. The series was first displayed as oil on canvas and later engraved by Hogarth for wider publication in 1732. This edition is after Hogarth and engraved by Ernst Ludwig Riepenhausen circa 1850 for a German collection of Hogarth's works, "Erklärung Hogarthischen." Although the prints are stained and foxed, this wear still doesn't distract from the beautiful quality of the engraving of the Riepenhausen edition. William Hogarth (1697-1764) is considered by many scholars and print enthusiasts as the grandfather of English graphic satire, but he was also an accomplished oil painter, portraitist, engraver, and draughtsman. Hogarth mastered the art of depicting human nature and all of its hypocrisies in society with graphic satire. The universality of his humor and the all-too-human characters featured in his works make Hogarth's satires remarkable. This print represents the epitome of Hogarth's skills as an artist and as a conscientious observer of hu

        Public Squares, Parks, and Places in the City of New York

      D.T. Valentine, 1850. unbound. Map. Lithograph. Image measures 8 3/4 x 21 7/8" This map, compiled by Francis Nicholson in 1838, assembles 17 squares, parks, and public places in New York onto a single sheet. Locations include Battery, Bowling Green, Duane Park, The Park [at City Hall], Hudson Square, Five Point Park, Abingdon Square, Washington Square, Tompkins Square, Union Place, Stuyvesant Square, Bloomingdale Square, Gramercy Park, Madison Square, Hamilton Square, Manhattan Square, Observatory Place and Mount Morris. Each map shows the layout of the surrounding streets ad give's the place's dimensions and acreage. This edition of the map was lithographed by H.A. Robinson in the mid 19th-century and published in the 1850 edition of the "Manual of The Corporation of the City of New York." It is in good condition with minor browning at the folds. The left outside margin is incomplete but does not interfere with the image. D.T. Valentine (1801-1869) served as the Deputy to the Clerk of the Common Council for thirty-seven years and began publishing the Manuals in 1841. The Manuals were directories of extensive historical and contemporary records of New York, richly illustrated with maps, lithographs, and engravings. This unusual yet charming maps serves as a reminder of the rapid taming of nature that accompanied New York's 19th century industrialization and development.

        MEMORIA DA EXPEDIÇÃO A CASSANGE

      - COMMANDADA PELO MAJOR GRADUADO Francisco de Salles Ferreira. EM 1850. ESCRIPTA PELO CAPITÃO MOVEL D?AMBRIR ? Na Imprensa Silviana. 1854. De 22x14 cm. com 129 págs. Encadernação com lombada e cantos em pele. Preserva as capas de brochura. Primeira e única edição muito rara. Inocêncio tem a data de edição errada. Fonte muito importante para o estudo da etnologia, da antropologia, da história de Angola e da presença dos portugueses neste território durante o século XIX. Relatório da expedição militar a Cassange, que partiu de Pungo-andongo em 28 de Novembro de 1850 para restaurar os direitos de Portugal e punir a revolta do Jaga Cassange Pascoal Machado, que entretanto tinha assassinado o novo Jaga imposto pelas autoridades portuguesas e várias outras pessoas. A expedição voltou ao ponto de partida em 13 de Abril de 1851, tendo destruído acampamentos dos rebeldes, provocado numerosas baixas, apoiado a escolha de outro Jaga fiel a Portugal e aprisionado apoiantes e familiares do chefe rebelde, que, no entanto, conseguiu fugir e voltaria a provocar graves incidentes logo no ano seguinte. A obra inclui um prólogo em que o autor revela que a sua motivação para publicar o presente trabalho foi ter lido um artigo no Nº 2878 de A Revolução de Setembro, de 22 de Outubro de 1851, com grandes imprecisões, que julga ser seu dever corrigir. Segue-se a Memória propiamente dita até à página 67 e o Diário até à página 95, que descreve a perseguição ao rebelde em fuga, executada pelo autor no comando da sua divisão, que para esse fim se separou do corpo principal. Inclui uma história dos Cassanges, recolhida de tradições orais, minuciosas descrições dos seus costumes, das cerimónias pelo falecimento e eleição dos chefes e a cerimónia do baptizado do novo Jaga e dos seus nobres.
