        IL CUOCO BOLOGNESE-TRATTATO DI CUCINA FORNITO SOPRA UN METODO ECONOMICO SEMPLICE E FACILE DI APPRESTARE OGNI SORTA DI VIVANDE, ON LA DESCRIZIONE DEI PRODOTTI D'OGNI GENERE DELLE QUATTRO STAGIONI DELL'ANNO

      1857 - In 8°, pp.160, brossura editoriale, una tavola fuori testo raffigurante "Il cuoco economico" ."?non ho saputo a chi meglio dedicarlo se non a voi, DONNE GENTILI, in cui si ammira una squisitezza di gusto, ed un desiderio ingenito di tener liete le brigate massime nei conviti.". Benché al frontespizio viene dichiarato trattarsi della Seconda Edizione, questo rispetto al precedente è un volume del tutto nuovo: le pagine da 96 diventano 160 e le 93 ricette diventano 155 e si chiude con il capitolo "Della cucina adatta pei soli bambini". Novità assai rilevante è il contenuto dell'opera, che si distacca nettamente dagli altridell'epoca, esprimendo uno spiccato aspetto regionale. Le ricette di piatti bolognesi sono soprattutto per fritti e per dolci, fra questi sfrappole, crescentine, la tradizionale torta di riso ed ancora "Biscottini all'Africana" e gli "Africanetti" vanto di una famosa ed antica pasticceria della provincia di Bologna. Del tutto ignorate sono le ricette per la pasta intesa come lasagne e tortellini, che le brave bolognesi già conoscevano alla perfezione, mentre si trova la ricetta per il "Risotto alla Milanese" che nella Bologna dell'ottocento era sicuramente uno dei segreti da apprendere. In ICCU vengono segnalate solo due copie anastatiche l'una conservata presso la Biblioteca Comunale dell'Archiginnasio e l'altra presso la Biblioteca gastronomica Academia Barilla. Estremamente raro, normali segni del tempo. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Die Malereien der Katakomben Roms.. Text u. Tafelband (2 Bde., compl.).

      2, XIX (1) 596 S.., 54 Textabb. 2 Bl., 267 teilw. farb. Abb., Kart. u. HLwd.-Mappe, Bibliotheksschild a, Rücken. Titelbl. m. Stempel u. Sign., min fingerfleckig, jede Tafel ebenfalls gestempelt, einige Taf. mit kleine Randläsuren, insgesamt gebrauchspurig, min. fingerfleckig - gutes Exemplar. Erste Ausgabe des seltenen und bis heute nicht überholten Grundlagenwerks. - Joseph Wilpert (1857-1944 in Rom), Priester, Christlicher Archäologe. Schon zu Beginn seiner Arbeit in den Katakomben erkannte Wilpert die Unzulänglichkeit der bis dahin umlaufenden Abbildungen, die er als Ursache der von ihm als falsch angesehenen Deutungen ausmachte. So stellte er sich die Veröffentlichung zuverlässiger Abbildungen als eine seiner Lebensaufgaben. In der Folgezeit nahm er daher über Jahre hinweg alle Strapazen auf sich, um in den engen Gängen der Katakomben vor den Originalen Fotografien und zuverlässige Kopien der Malereien herzustellen. Nachdem er eine Reihe von Einzeluntersuchungen, Fallstudien und grundsätzlichen Überlegungen vorab veröffentlicht hatte, konnte er 1903 das Ergebnis in zwei Foliobänden mit Abbildungen in einer bis dahin unerreichten und auf lange Zeit nicht übertroffenen Qualität, gleichzeitig in einer deutschen und einer italienischen Ausgabe, vorlegen. Wilpert hat sich stets um eine Deutung der Darstellungen bemüht, die sich streng an die erkennbaren Spuren hielt. Hierin hat er gegenüber seinen Vorgängern beachtliche Fortschritte erzielt. Doch blieb seine Interpretation frühchristlicher Kunstwerke als unmittelbare Verbildlichungen von kirchlichen Glaubensvorstellungen, die er wohl schon aus dem Unterricht an der Innsbrucker Universität mitgenommen hatte, davon unberührt. Dies und seine mit dem Gros der damaligen Christlichen Archäologen geteilte Tendenz, auch alltägliche Szenen einer biblischen Erzählung oder einem kirchlichen Brauch zuzuordnen, wurde schon zu seinen Lebzeiten von vielen Forschern abgelehnt. Seine viel zu frühe Datierung vor allem der Katakombenmalereien hatte ihn zu der Überzeugung gebracht, dass der Ursprung aller christlichen Kunst in Rom zu suchen sei. Diese Überzeugung führte ihn zu einer Abwertung der Kunsterzeugnisse der östlichen Reichshälfte, die, wie seine Datierungen auch, schon von manchen seiner Zeitgenossen korrigiert wurde.

        Il giorno del solenne ingresso delle loro Maestà l'Imperatore e l'Imperatrice.

      Milan, tipi della Gazzetta Ufficiale, 1857. - Imperial folio (427 x 620 mm). (8) pp.: title page, lithographic portrait frontispiece, 3 pp. of text, colophon on verso of final leaf. Printed in blue throughout, with title border printed in red; frontispiece printed in black and brown. Special commemorative issue of the "Gazzetta Ufficiale di Milano" in honour of the Austrian Imperial couple's visit to Milan during their tour of Northern Italy in the winter of 1856/57. Empress Elisabeth had insisted that their little daughter Sophie, a toddler of not yet two years of age, accompany them. The grand entrance to Milan took place on 15 January 1857. In spite of the luxurious special edition and the flowery ode (by the Gazetta's editor G. B. Menini) which makes up the first page of the text, the reception was cold, even hostile: most of the Italian noblemen failed to appear; in outrageous defiance, they even sent their domestics to occupy the aristocratic boxes during the special performance given at the Scala. The Italian hopes of indepence, dashed in 1849, would once more flourish in the Austro-Sardinian War of 1859, which would leave Austrian influence in Italy severely weakened. - Traces of folds; slight duststaining to margins; some edge flaws.

        Xi yi lue lun [Brief Notes on Western Surgery]

      Many woodcut illus. in the text. Printed in Chinese. 61; 113; 19 folding leaves. Three vols. in one. 8vo, orig. wrappers (a bit of worming), new stitching. Shanghai: Ren ji yi guan, 1857. First edition of an extremely rare and fascinating book; this is the first book on Western surgery to be published in China. Hobson (1816-73), after studying medicine at University College, London, served with the London Missionary Society in China. Hobson arrived in Macao in 1839 and spent about twenty years in China in hospitals in Macao, Hong Kong, Canton and Shanghai. He was a pioneer in proposing the establishment of a medical school in Hong Kong for Chinese students and wrote many books, including an English/Chinese medical dictionary. A serious student of the Chinese language, Hobson wrote, with two Chinese collaborators, a series of four original medical books,: Outline of Anatomy and Physiology (Quanti xin lun, 1850), the present work (Xiyi lüelun, 1857), Practice of Medicine and Materia Medica (Neike xinshuo, 1858), and the Manual of Gynecology, Obstetrics, and the Nursing Care of the Newborn (Fuei shinsetsu, 1858). These books were not translations of individual European medical works but entirely new and unique distillations, written in Chinese, of what Hobson considered to be the best in Western medicine. They were widely used within the Chinese missionary medical schools for the rest of the century. Vol. I is a general review of Western surgical techniques and the kinds of illnesses which require surgery, including burns and gun shot wounds. Hobson also compares the Eastern and Western practices of medicine. Vols. II deals with surgery of the head, hand, foot, and bones in general; eyes, nose, mouth, chest and abdomen; various dermatological growths; and general orthopedic surgery. The final volume is concerned with herbal medicine and pharmaceutical preparations and their applications in treating diseases. Hobson's medical works were quickly translated into Japanese and published in Tokyo or Kyoto; these editions are rather common. The Chinese first editions are distinctly rare. The fine woodcuts depict numerous Western surgical procedures and instruments. Minor marginal worming but a fine set. One plate with a long tear carefully mended. ❧ Heirs of Hippocrates 1830.

        Briefe aus Presburg [Letters from Bratislava]

      Bratislava 1857 - Sewn pamphlet with paper spine strip (19 × 12 cm); illustrated title page with black ink frame; 24 pages of holograph text and small drawings in ink. About very good; title page lightly stained; spine strip tearing at extremities; internally very good. Unique and unpublished manuscript of this satirical epistolary text, ostensibly addressed to the author's father and the remaining family while on a stay in Bratislava. The text is remarkable for its use of linguistic puns and humorous descriptions, and composed throughout in a parodic dialectal form, possibly in the style of "Böhmakelns" or another imitation of Slavic speakers of German, and includes the conscious use of false orthography and other mistakes: "Verörder Fader! Endlich bin ich da. Ehe ühr verörder Fader mainen Prief aufmachd, rufed alle meine Beganden und Wreinde zusammen und löset ihnen mainen Prief for. So, jezt sözt aich alle nieder und pferdenehmed mit gesbandheit des Keistes und der Ohren die Benachrichdigungen, Erlöbnisse, Abend- und Morgendeier aires Sohnes und spekrective Wraindes an. Also, jetzt kenen wir anfanken. Also, ich bin da. Nun here ich aich alle fraken, wo, wo bin ich da? - - - - - - - Und ich gebe aich zur Andword, so wie es in der h. Srifd stöhd: "ich bin, der ich bin", ebenso sage ich, ich bin da, wo ich bin. - Wo ich aber bin, wördet ihr schwertlich erradden. Um nur aich ferörder Fader und draie Baganden nicht in Gifdighait und Unruhigkeit über mein geistliches und laiberliches Voll und Fehe zu ferzusetzen, so fermölde ich aich ich bin in Brösspurk." The author goes on to derive the German name of today's Bratislava, Pressburg, from the term "Presswurst". With numerous accomplished small ink and water color drawings, a few of which signed "P.K." The name of the fictive authorial persona "Fenzel Pepitzko Hawliczek" is not documented. "Böhmakeln" -- a unique dialect created by Bohemian immigrants in Vienna, who received no formal instruction in German -- as well as similar forms of speech from the Austro-Hungarian Empire, are increasingly attracting the interest of researchers. See, for instance, the project underway at Universität Bamberg since 2013. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Constitution for the Government of the New-York Yacht Club. 1857.

      New York: John W. Amerman,, 1857. Duodecimo (148 × 93 mm). Original red linen over light card wraps, title gilt to upper panel. Folding coloured plate of yacht flags. Ex-Connecticut State Library with their bookplate inside lower panel of the wraps, embossed stamp through the first few leaves, inked accession number to the upper wrap. First edition. Uncommon, just a handful of copies of these early handbooks to the club have survived. The New York Yacht Club was founded in 1844, probably the third such club - after the Narrangansett Boat Club (1838) and the Detroit Boat Club (1839) - founded in the United States, the earliest date for a copy of the constitution that we have been able to trace is 1854. 1857 was a significant year in the history of the club, being the year that the One Hundred Sovereign Cup, won by the NYYC's yacht America at the Royal Yacht Squadron's annual regatta in 1851, was donated to the club to serve as a challenge cup for sportsmanlike competition between nations, the beginning of the famous America's Cup Races.

        Little Dorrit

      1857. First Edition . DICKENS, Charles. Little Dorrit. London: Bradbury and Evans, 1857. Thick octavo, contemporary three-quarter vellum, red morocco spine label, marbled boards and edges. $1750.First edition in book form, first issue, of one of DickensÂ’ most outspoken and outstanding novels, with 40 illustrations by Hablôt Knight Brown (“Phiz”), including frontispiece and vignette title page.“In Little Dorrit Dickens mounts his single most ferocious onslaught against England and English society; against its government, against its financiers, against its artists and even against its ordinary citizens who, at least in Bleeding Heart Yard, believed that ‘foreigners were always immoralÂ… that foreigners had no independent spirit” (Ackroyd, 758). Perhaps unsurprisingly, many reviewers reviled the book upon its publication. DickensÂ’ friend Hans Christian Andersen advised the author to ignore the critics: “They are forgotten in a week, and your book stands and lives” (Ackroyd, 780). And indeed, Little Dorrit does: not only a commercial success in its day (poor press notwithstanding) but also esteemed now as a “wonderfully rich novel— rich in ideas, rich in characterization, rich in incident, and written in a richly imaginative proseÂ… Many [modern] critics regard it as DickensÂ’ masterpiece” (Watts, 108). First issue, still retaining signature “B2” on page 371 and “Rigaud” mistakenly substituted for “Blandois” on pages 469-74. Eckel, 82-85. Smith I:12. Gimbel (Podeschi) A141. Armorial bookplate of Sir John Whittaker Ellis, onetime Lord Mayor of London and Member of Parliament. Dealer description tipped in.Plates generally darkened at edges (as often). An extremely good copy.

        Virginians, a Tale of the Last Century

      1857. First Edition . THACKERAY, William Makepeace. The Virginians: A Tale of the Last Century. London: Bradbury and Evans, 185759. Octavo, 24 original parts in original yellow printed wrappers, uncut and occasionally unopened. Housed in custom clamshell box. $1500.First edition in original parts, first issues, complete with all plates and advertisements, of ThackerayÂ’s tale of brethren divided during the American Revolution, the last book the author himself illustrated.Like his contemporary (and rival) Charles Dickens, Thackeray visited the United States (first in 1852-53, again in 1855-56); unlike his fellow novelist, however, Thackeray “had on the whole a happy timeÂ… He was willing, as Dickens had not been, to see the greatness of the country and recognize that the promise of the future atoned for the shortcomings of the presentÂ… Impressions of the second tour were worked into The Virginians,” ThackerayÂ’s continuation of the family saga he began in The History of Henry Esmond (1852) (Baugh et al., 1358-59). Here, the author traces the fortunes of Henry EsmondÂ’s grandsons as the Revolutionary War divides them. With 48 engraved plates and several small in-text woodcuts by Thackeray—the last book he himself illustrated. First issue, with the first word on page 207, line 15 from the bottom (in No. 7) misprinted “actresses” (corrected in later editions to “ancestresses”); in part 12, chapters XLVII-XLVIII misnumbered XLVIII-XLIX. All ads present, including the tipped explanatory slip in part 20, regarding omitted plates; an additional advertising leaf present in No. 1. Anecdotal evidence suggests that the bibliographerÂ’s copy, which has a publisherÂ’s catalogue at rear, may be anomalous. Afterward published in book form (two clothbound volumes, dated 1858 and 1859). Van Duzer 232. No. 14 with previous ownerÂ’s initials to front wrapper, pencil notations to rear of advertising slip. Nos. 21 and 22 with previous ownerÂ’s signature to front wrapper.Closed tear to first plate in No. 6; modest foxing to the plates in Nos. 7, 8,16 and 17; minor loss to lower corners of plates in No. 23. Interiors with scattered light foxing and marginal soiling, light age-wear and soiling to wrappers; minor creasing to final few leaves of No. 13; small closed tear to front wrapper of No. 24, repaired. An excellent copy in near-fine condition.

        Substantial autograph Manuscript Fragment, unsigned, in French, with translation (Alexandre, 1824-1895, fils, French Novelist, Playwright and Writer on Morals and Society)

      1857 - and transcription, of an unused portion of his comedy 'L'Ami des Femmes', first produced in 1860, a dialogue between J[ane de Simerose] and de M[ontègre], with many corrections in the text, between the lines, or in the margin, made at the time of writing, Dumas explores as many as four versions of a sentence before continuing, Jane passionately asks Montègre whether, if her husband has broken his word, that is a reason to break hers, "So long as I am to keep his name, I must respect it", if a wife gave herself to another, "each of the two would have this right to despise her, for you would despise me in spite of yourself if I were to believe you . Who do you take me for ? To put me in a web of lies, terrors, insults, adulteries . to lower myself in the esteem of others and my own - Never", 2 sides folio on blue paper, old identification of the handwriting in French, no place, no date but watermark 'Towgood's Extra Super' dated very light mending of short side tears This passage may have been a trial for part of Act IV. In the published play, Act I introduces de Royes, the 'friend' of the title, who claims to be an expert on women, and de Montègre, who has briefly met Jane two or three times before. She loved but is separated from her husband, who was unfaithful after a month of marriage. Meeting Montègre again, she wistfully thinks he might be someone she could trust and writes a note asking him to meet her 'tomorrow - I love you'. However, her husband turns up near the end of Act III, with adoption papers for a young orphan, whom he hopes Jane will bring up with his support, and Jane is given pause. In Act IV she is trailed by Montègre to Paris, where she gives him the slip. On returning home she upbraids him for following her in secret rather than declaring himself openly, and refuses to trust him. At the end of Act V Montègre arranges for Jane's note of assignation to be put in the hands of the husband as if from Jane herself, Royes' 'expert' knowledge is counfounded, and Jane and her husband are reconciled. (See Dumas' Théâtre Complet, vol. 4). The present fragment suggests an alternative which Dumas could not use, possibly because it seemed too final at this stage of the play.
