      Paris, Anselin et Pochard 1824 - Duodecimo. Pp. viii, 172. Plus 2 fold-out lithographic plates bound at end. Text figure. Plain binder's paper wrappers, bit worn, old shelf ticket to spine, old military institutional stamp and mark to title. Shabby and bit dog-eared, it is a copy that is preserved entirely in the original state, untrimmed and in a very good and clean internal condition. ~ First edition. Extremely rare first edition of this treatise which went directly through several reprints. The second edition appeared in 1826, and the third edition in 1829. See further "Catalogue of Books in Foreign Languages" (Dulau and Co., London 1828) which offers for sale a copy of the 2nd edition (Item 5504, p. 280); "Bulletin general et universel des annonces et des nouvelles scientifiques" (Paris, 1826), which reviews a copy of the 1st edition (No. 97, p. 237). See also Jomini's "Histoire critique et militaire des guerres de la Révolution"(Paris, 1825), Bibliography, p. 34. The book comprises of two individual treatises which are brought as one whole and the identity of the German author whose work served as the basis for the present French adaptation remains nowadays for most bibliographers a mystery. It was, however, Johann Dragollowics, a German infantry officer to whom also the work "Unterricht des Soldaten der Infanterie im Felddienst" is attributed. He is responsible for the main treatise, comprising of the first 24 chapters of the book, whereas Forestier contributed the second treatise which encompass the last three chapters, and the essay "De manoeuvres" which concludes the book. Only 3 intitutional holding worldwide (BnF, Nationaal Militair Museum, Dartmouth College). [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      Paris Levrault 1824 - (20,5 x 13 cm). (4) XXI (3) 256 (1) S. Dekorativer Halblederband der Zeit mit hübscher Rückenvergoldung. Erste Ausgabe. - "Following the completion of his investigation of natural fats, Chevreul wrote a work of a more general nature, 'Considérations générales sur l'analyse organique' (1824), which is a reflection on the many years of research with organic materials. Here Chevreul considered the methods of research in organic chemistry, methods that he himself used with such success in his investigations. The primary analytical problems were how to determine whether one had a pure substance or a mixture and how to resolve the frequently complex animal or plant material into its immediate principles. It was Chevreul who placed this immediate analysis on a rigorous basis. He gave precise criteria for what constituted a pure organic compound and presented for the first time a clear and accurate account of the methods of immediate analysis that must necessarily precede elementary analysis" (DSB). - Der hübsche Einband etwas berieben, sonst nahezu fleckenfrei und gut erhalten. - Partington IV, 246; DSB 3, 243 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Geological Map of Durham by W. Smith Mineral Surveyor. A New Map of Durham divided into wards, exhibiting its rivers, roads, parks, &c. By John Cary engraver, 1824.

      Published by J. Cary Engraver and Mapseller, No 86 St James's Street, March 1st, 1824., London, - Smith's geological map of Durham Engraved map, fine original hand-colour, dissected and mounted on linen, folding into original brown marbled paper slipcase with publisher's label. First edition of William Smith's geological map of Durham, one in a series of county maps produced by Smith, each separately issued, which were the first detailed geological maps of specific areas. Smith's individual maps are extremely rare on the market. Smith produced the first geological map of England and Wales in 1815, which contained "an amazing amount of correct detail" (DSB) and was the basis for all the geological maps that followed. In 1819 he began the publication of a geological atlas of England and Wales. Published in parts over five years, it remained unfinished, containing 21 maps of various English counties. "All the county maps published contain much more information than was shown on Smith's large map of 1815, and indicate that during the intervening years he had done much to increase his knowledge. The maps are based on Cary's county maps, and are headed 'By W. Smith, Mineral Surveyor.' Each map measures 21 ½ inches by 19 1/4 inches [across the ruled border]; the scale varies slightly but averages 3 miles to an inch" (Sheppard). The map of Durham appeared in the sixth and last part (1824), and was also issued separately, as here. The title above appears in the upper margin; another title is given in a circular tablet in the lower left corner: "A New Map of Durham, divided into Wards, exhibiting its Roads, Rivers, Parks, &c. By John Cary Engraver. 1824." "One of his significant achievements was the identification of the presence of coal in the eastern parts of County Durham, beneath the overlying Magnesian Limestone. The advice he gave to the landowners there led to the establishment of new collieries, resulting in the construction of port and dock facilities at both Hartlepool and Seaham Harbour during the 1830s; both ports were connected by rail to the new mines" (Skempton). On this copy of the map the railways in the southeast of the county have been added later in manuscript. A.G.

        THE PRIVATE JOURNAL

      - OF CAPTAIN LYON OF H. M. S. HECLA DURING THE RECENT VOYAGE OF DISCOVERY UNDER CAPTAIN PARRY. With a map and plates. London: John Murray, Albemarle-Street. 1824. In 8º gr. [de 21x13 cm] com xi, 468 pags. Encadernação da época, inglesa, inteira de pele marroquin natural, estampada com finos ferros a seco; e com esquadrias das pastas e lombada roladas a ouro. Folhas de guarda em papel decorativo da época. Ilustrado com 7 gravuras e 1 mapa extratexto; e ainda partituras musicais no texto. 1ª edição. Exemplar com cantos e charneiras das pastas cansados; e apresentando oxidação devida a manuseamento; e a vestígios de tinta (pag. 93-98); oxidação de um marcador de papel (223-224); oxidação de manchas de humidade (351-354 e 435-436) A gravura em extratexto apresenta o navio HMS Hecla bloqueado pelos gelos do Ártico. O mapa (de 30x60 cm) representa a descoberta da Passagem do Noroeste pelos navios de Sua Majestade Britânica Fury e Hecla: « General Chart shewing the track of H. M. Ships Fury and Hecla on a voyage for the Discovery of a North West Passage AD 1821-22-23» [EN] FIRST EDITION. Illustrated with 7 engraved similar plates after original drawings by the author. Lande 1291: « Lyon's drawings were also used to illustrate Parry's Second Voyage». Contains a folding map of the Artic with the voyages’ tracks. Copy with some foxing, thumbed, some ink spots. Contemporary binding: full calf tooled (with blind and gilt finishings) and slightly worn out at corners. George Francis Lyon (1795-1833) was a rare combination of Arctic and African explorer. He also was a competent British naval officer, commander, explorer, artist and socialite. While not having a particularly distinguished career, he is remembered for the entertaining journals he kept and for the watercolors paintings he completed in the Arctic. In 1821 he was promoted commander and appointed to the Hecla under the orders of Captain William Edward Parry in the Fury. The expedition, Parry's second in the search for the north-west passage, sailed on 8 May 1821, entered the Arctic region through Hudson Strait, examined Repulse Bay and the neighboring coast of Melville peninsula, and wintered at a small island to the eastward of the Frozen Strait. The next summer they went further north and entered Fury and Hecla Strait, but the season being then far advanced they turned back, wintered at Igloolik (lat. 69°21' N, long. 81°44' W), and came home in autumn 1823, as signs of scurvy among the crew made it inadvisable to stay. His Private Journal proved popular and there was a second edition the following year. He had a genuine interest in the "Natives" of the countries he visited. The information recorded about the Inuit tribes that he met proved valuable to later generations of anthropologists, who relied on his journals as a reference point for their own observations. Arctic Bibliography 10531: "Author's record of the second Parry expedition to Canadian Arctic waters in the Fury and Hecla, 1821-23." Field 961: "Almost the entire volume is devoted to the narration of the peculiarities of the Aborigines of the Arctic regions." Sabin 42853: «8º, pp. xiii, (i), 468 pags. 7 plates [ ] The work is principally devoted to the narration of the peculiarities of the aborigines of the Artic regions. Captain Lyon’s curiosity led him to observe with great attention the habits of life and traits of character of the different tribes of Esquimaux, who were attracted by his human management of his winter quarters. Of Murrays first edition a few copies were printed on thick paper for presents containing three sets of the fine engravins by Finden, i. e. India proofs, etching and prints.» Language: Inglês / English Location/localizacao: M-3-C-27 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Encadernações da época inteiras de pele com finos ferros a ouro por casas fechadas ao gosto inglês e ferros rolados a ouro sobre as esquadrias das pastas. Corte das folhas marmoreado. Folhas de guarda em papel decorativo da época. Exemplar com titulo de posse de Joaquim Bernardo Pinto da Silva, em Villa Real. Obra completa, raríssima, inexistente em bibliotecas públicas, e de grande interesse na compreensão da modernidade do ensino universitário em Coimbra, relativamente às ciencias que permitiram a Revolução Industrial do mundo ocidental. Na primeira metade do século XIX, o Laboratório Químico da Casa da Moeda, que então se situava na Rua de São Paulo, em Lisboa, foi um dos mais importantes polos científicos do País, destacando-se no domínio da química aplicada, fornecendo importantes dados e pareceres enquanto laboratório oficial de análises, bem como no ensino reputado daquela ciência. [.] Em 1804 o Laboratório Químico da Casa da Moeda estava instituído e o seu diretor era José Bonifácio de Andrada e Silva, que era, desde 1801, o Intendente Geral das Minas e Metais do Reino, [.] tendo sido responsável pela descoberta, na ilha de Utö, na Suécia, em 1800, da petalita (minério que, mais tarde, haveria de levar à descoberta de um novo elemento químico, o lítio). [.] Andrada e Silva, que mais tarde haveria de assumir um papel decisivo na independência do Brasil, tinha como ajudante João António Monteiro, lente de Metalurgia em Coimbra, que, por sua vez, teria como ajudante Gregório José de Seixas. O Príncipe Regente manda então anexar o Laboratório à Universidade de Coimbra, facto que muito contribuiu para o prestígio e autoridade dos cursos ministrados na Casa da Moeda sem que, no entanto, fosse retirada ao Laboratório uma certa independência organizativa (vide Boletim Interno Imprensa Nacional - Casa da Moeda, S. A. Outubro 2012). Referimos os assuntos mais notáveis em cada volume desta obra: Volume 1: A compressibilidade e a elasticidade do ar e dos líquidos, e a determinação matemática da compressibilidade dos gases. Volume 2: O cálculo matemático da electricidade e das descargas das pilhas voltaicas. Volume 3: A decomposição dos ácidos e dos óxidos, por familias de elementos não metálicos e metálicos Volume 4: Sobre a obtenção dos sais: sulfatos, sulfitos, fosfatos, etc. Com tabelas, leis e autores da determinação das descobertas. Volume 5: Sobre a quimica orgânica, no qual são determinados os processos de obtenção dos produtos imediatos como o açucár e a nicotina; da obtenção dos produtos hidrogenados como as essencias, a resina e as borrachas; da obtençaõ dos produtos azotados como o fermento; da obtenção de corantes e tintas e a teoria da obtenção dos pigmentos e tintas; da obtenção do alcoool e do éter. Apresenta 2 grandes capitulos sobre as bases salináveis vegetais e a combinação dos acidos vegetais com as bases salináveis inorganicas. Apresenta um capitulo de considerações fisico-quimicas do nascimento, vida, morte e decomposição das plantas. na qual se incluem os betumes, as naftas e os asfaltos.

        Organon de l'art de guérir traduit de l'original allemand par Erneste George De Brunnow

      Dresde, chez Arnold 1824 - In-8° broché, couverture d'attente de l'époque, LXII-271 pages et un feuillet d'errata. Exemplaire dans sa condition originelle, broché, à toutes marges. Ex-dono manuscrit au verso du premier plat. Cette première traduction parue à Dresde dont le Duc souverain, Frédéric-Ferdinand fut un des premiers protecteurs d'une méthode qui déclencha immédiatement des phénomènes d'amour et de haine est le premier livre français d'homéopathie, considéré du fait de son importance et de sa réelle rareté comme le graal de tous collectionneurs d'histoire de l'homéopathie. Cet exemplaire - en exact état de parution - est rendu unique et exceptionnel par son appartenance. Il a été offert au grand chirurgien, Récamier, élève de Desault dont l'amitié avec Hahnemann est bien connue. En témoigne, l'annotation manuscrite figurant au dos du premier plat "Mr le docteur Récamier", probablement de la main du traducteur et maitre d'oeuvre de l'édition, le Baron Erneste George Von Brunnow. On connaît le role de celui-ci sur la propagation de l'homoeopathie à ses débuts dans toute l'Europe et le couple associatif qu'il forma avec Hahnemann après avoir été son patient pourrait évoquer d'autres relations ayant présidée à la naissance d'autres révolutions médicales, comme Deslon et Mesmer, ou Marie Bonaparte et Freud [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Rom, Blick von den Caracallathermen auf San Giovanni in Laterano, 1824/25.

      - Bleistift, mit nur teilweise sichtbarer Umfassungslinie, auf gelblichem Transparentpapier. 23,5/23,2:43,8 cm. – Rechte obere Ecke ergänzt, mit mehreren winzigen Löchlein. Vgl. Wechssler WV 163: „Rom, Blick von den Caracallathermen auf San Giovanni in Laterano", Abb. S. 177. Die an dieser Stelle aufgeführte sowie die hier vorliegende Zeichnung stehen in Zusammenhang mit den gemeinsam mit Joseph Thürmer (1789-1833) geplanten Radierungen mit Romansichten aus verschiedenen Himmelsrichtungen, von denen aber nur die südöstliche Ansicht verwirklicht wurde (vgl. Wechssler WV 772); Lehmann, S. 193, Nachlaßnummer „504", „Kaiserpaläste in Rom, 1825", geschätzt mit 22 Gulden. Obwohl verso die Nachlaßnummer – üblicherweise mit Bleistift geschrieben – fehlt, was mit der Feinheit des Papieres zu erklären ist, handelt es sich wohl um die im Nachlaßverzeichnis genannte Zeichnung. Die Bezeichnung „Kaiserpaläste" stammt von Koopmann, der das Inventar erstellte. Wechssler schreibt dazu im WV, S. 27: „Im März (1824) zeichnet er vornehmlich in Rom. Durch Heinrich Hübsch (1795-1863) ist er vermutlich mit Joseph Thürmer aus München bekannt gemacht worden, mit dem er die ‚nordwestliche Übersicht von Rom’ plant, eine großformatige Radierung von zwei Platten, von der je eine Fries und Thürmer radieren sollen. Die Vorzeichnung und Vorlage dazu sind von Fries, die Radierung meint mit dem Titel ‚nordwestliche Übersicht’ den Standpunkt des Kapitolturms, von dem der Blick über die Stadt nach Südosten geht. Die Arbeit an der Platte wird bis in den April gedauert haben. Ende April und im Mai zeichnet er noch am Forum und Palatin. Dann bricht er mit Begas (Karl Begas, 1794-1854) und Heinrich Hess (1798-1863) in die Albaner Berge auf."

Small 4to (20.5 cm; 8"). 39 [i.e., 36] pp. Freemasonry was a hot topic in many nations of Spanish America in the first two decades after achievement of Independence. Some worried about the secrecy of the organization, its possible influence in government, and its stance regarding Catholicism.    The present work claims to be a translation of portions of Adumbratio liberorum muratorum, seú, Francs-massons vi cujus eorum societas origo [sic], ritus, mores, &c deteguntu (Madrid, 1751) but with additions as the translator thought appropriate given the controversy in Colombia surrounding the organization.    Searches of NUC, WorldCat, COPAC, CCBPE, and CICLA find only one copy worldwide (SUNY-Buffalo).

        Pierer Lexikon): Binzer, A. / Pierer, H. A. (Hrsg.): Encyclopädisches Wörterbuch der Wissenschaften, Künste und Gewerbe, bearbeitet von mehreren Gelehrten, 44 Halbbände (v. 52)

      Altenburg, Literatur Comptoir / Verlagshandlung von H. A. Pierer, 1824 - 1836. Erstauflage des Pierer-Lexikons, das als erstes sachlich-modernes und damit richtungsweisendes Stichwort-Lexikon in die Lexikographie eingehen sollte. Beabsichtigt war mit dieser Neugründung eine Kombination aus sachlich-wissenschaftlicher Information, für die die Encyclopädie von Ersch / Gruber als Vorbild diente, und dem erläuternden Mitteilungsstil des Konversationslexikons, wie ihn Brockhaus verkörperte, wobei der sachliche Informationszweck im Vordergrund stand. Ursprünglicher Initiator des Projektes war der Brockhaus-Mitarbeiter Ludwig Hain (1781 - 1836), der das Vorhaben aber früh dem Verleger Christian Hahn in Altenburg überantwortete, welcher zusammen mit dem Journalisten und Schriftsteller August Daniel von Binzer (1793 - 1868) als Chefredakteur die ersten beiden Bände des Werkes herausbrachte. Hahn wiederum sah sich aus finanziellen Gründen genötigt, seinen Verlag - und mit ihm auch das Lexikon-Projekt - an den Inhaber der Hofbuchdruckerei, Johann Friedrich Pierer, und dessen Sohn Heinrich August Pierer abzutreten. Die beiden Pierers - der Sohn als Herausgeber, der Vater, ein wahrer "Polyhistor" seiner Zeit, als eigenhändiger Verfasser zahlreicher naturwissenschaftlicher Artikel - realisierten das Projekt in seinen Anfängen gemeinsam. "Pierer gebührt das Verdienst, den Wert von Hahns ausgezeichnetem Konzept erkannt und in hervorragender Manier . in die Tat umgesetzt zu haben. Das Werk stellt einen richtungsweisenden Markstein in der Lexikongraphie dar und wurde zum Vorbild für das Meyer-Lexikon. Vielfach nimmt das Werk die heutzutage übliche sachlich-trockene, knappe und objektive Schreibweise eines modernen Allgemeinlexikons vorweg." (Bibliotheca Lexicorum, S. 451 f.). Die erste Auflage erschien ab 1824 in 26 Bänden - ursprünglich geplant waren nur vier Bände - im Gesamtumfang von ca. 20.000 Seiten und umfaßte mit über 400.000 Stichworten ein Vielfaches der Artikelanzahl der etwa gleichzeitig erscheinenden 6. Brockhaus-Auflage. Die Bände befinden sich vorzüglichem Zustand: Buchrücken nicht berieben, auch die sonst zumeist etwas beanspruchten Deckelbezüge hier nahezu tadellos allenfalls einige Ecken leicht bestoßen. Seiten frisch und nahezu fleckenfrei. Die Bände wirken ungelesen. Vorsätze und letzte Seiten mit altem Instituts- bzw. Wappenstempel. Außergewöhnlich schönes Teilexemplar dieser auf dem antiquarischen Buchmarkt kaum je angebotenen Erstauflage des Pierer-Lexikon. In diesem vorzüglichem Zustand sonst wohl kaum noch irgendwo erhältlich. Weitere Fotos auf der Homepage des Antiquariats (bitte Art.-Nr. auf der Angebotsseite in das Suchfeld eingeben).
