Dos un peu frotté. Très rare : un des tout premiers ouvrages de l'auteur. Le Silésien Theodor Sigismund Panofka (1800-1858) est connu comme le premier érudit à avoir entrepris une étude systématique de la poterie grecque antique, en dépit de jugements parfois hâtifs : ayant effectué le voyage de Rome dès 1823, à la suite de ses études à l'Université de Berlin, il y fonda dès 1824 le groupe dit des "Hyperboréens" (Hyperboreisch-römische Gesellschaft), avec le peintre Otto Magnus von Stackerlberg, l'historien Eduard Gerhard et le collectionneur August Kestner. Tous devaient s'illustrer dans la connaissance de l'Antiquité classique. Seulement deux exemplaires au CCF (BnF et Strasbourg).

Denham and Clapperton, in the company of Dr. Walter Oudney, travelled frm Benioleed, near Tripoli, almost due south to Lake Tchad, with excursions into the mountains west of Mourzuk in Fezzan.

Among the several appendices are translations from the Arabic of various letters and documents brought back by Denham and Clapperton, including a document relating to the death of Mungo Park; a translation from the Arabic of a geographical and historical account of the Kingdom of Tak-roor, from a larger work composed by Sultan Mohammed Bello of Hausa; vocabularies of Bornou, Begharmi, Mandara, and Timbuctoo; appendices on the zoology and botany of the regions based on samples collected by Dr. Oudney; a note on rock specimens; and a thermometrical journal kept at Kouka in Bornou.

         Considerations on the State of the Currency.

      John Murray, 1826., London: - 8vo. iv, 128, [2], 129-152, [8] pp. Ads at rear (dated Dec. 29, 1825). Original plain boards, printed paper spine label; spine joints reinforced with neat kozo. Very good. Rare. First edition. Written in response to a banking crisis and a collapse in both the economy and of a number of British banks, Tooke quickly sought to influence party policy with his viewpoint on economics. ". the pamphlet, Considerations on the State of the Currency (1826), was sparked by the collapse of the London financial market in late-1825. This financial crisis was accompanied by bank collapses, widespread bankruptcy and, most significantly, an internal drain of bullion reserves which nearly forced the Bank of England to suspend cash payments on demand, only four-and-half years after resumption had been accomplished in 1821. The crisis was to be the beginning of a severe economic downturn which persisted throughout 1826 and early 1827. It took many by surprise because it came at a time of apparent prosperity and healthy economic activity. No major events could be identified as the catalyst for the crisis. However, Tooke (1826: 48-9) had a clear understanding of its origins. He believed the crisis was the result of an unsustainable boom in the stock market which had all the hallmarks of the speculative mania of the famous 1720 South Sea Bubble. Indeed, Tooke was among those who foresaw the dangers of the speculative boom and fully anticipated financial disaster. Thus, when in late 1825 the financial system went into crisis and the economy was heading for a severe downturn, Tooke set himself the task of explaining the causes of the crisis and the lessons for banking policy. His motivation for writing the Considerations was therefore to influence policy debate and to procure overdue reform of the English banking system at a politically opportune time. With the encouragement of Lord Grenville, former Prime Minister and influential parliamentarian, and William Huskisson, President of the Board of Trade, Tooke hurriedly wrote the pamphlet over the winter of 1825-26 in readiness for public debate on the crisis at the parliamentary session beginning in early February 1826." [pp. 20-21] â€" Matthew Smith, Thomas Tooke and the Monetary Thought of Classical Economics, (2011). "The work was at first meant as a sequel to the first part of the "High and Low Prices," published 1822, but he afterwards devoted it more especially to the consideration of the events between that date and 1826. He argues that the Bank ought to have unloaded, at any rate the greater part of, the "Dead Weight Annuity" as soon as the increased issues for payment upon the purchases produced a bad effect on the exchanges, or to have raised the rate as a means of decreasing the redundant issue. Also that the non-publication of the Bank's accounts introduced too large an element of uncertainty, and suggests the obvious remedy. The greatest evils, however, were the precarious state of the country issues. "Every country Banker ought to be called upon to give some pledge of his ability to pay on demand the Notes which he may be permitted to issue." Further, "there is one part of that circulation which ought not upon any footing or with any modification to be any longer tolerated. I mean the Notes under £5." Some Country Banks grumbled if the public asked for gold; he rightly says: "If there is any feeling of the harshness of demanding coin for the Notes of a Bank, such Notes are more or less imperfectly convertible." - Stephens. Einaudi 5653; Goldsmiths 25024; Kress C.1805; Mattioli 3629; T.A. Stephens, A contribution to the bibliography of the Bank of England, (London, 1897), pp. 64-5.

Twentieth-century quarter polished calf, marbled paper boards, spine lettered and ruled in gilt, top edge brown. A few neat pen annotations to contents. Small chip to upper edge of p. 51, tear to p. 49 affecting 3 lines of text, an excellent copy. First edition of the published correspondence between agricultural improver and politician John Sinclair (1754-1835) and currency theorist Thomas Attwood (1783-1856). After he launched the Birmingham Political Union in 1830 Attwood was considered by many to be "'the most influential man in England'" (ODNB), and he was a leading figure in the public campaign for the Great Reform Act of 1832. Both men held each other in high regard; Attwood was an avid reader of Sinclair's works, particularly those on economics, and Sinclair supported Attwood's public letters to Lord Liverpool which alternately offered advice and criticism on the Bank of England's treatment of paper currency. During the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, Attwood's reputation has "steadily risen... as an important early contributor to the theory of economic and monetary policy" (Glasner, p. 23).

In einem Aufsehen erregenden Prozess konnte dies jedoch nicht bestätigt werden und die beschuldigten Ratsherren Michael Leodegar Corragioni und Joseph Pfyffer von Heidegg wurden freigesprochen (HLS).

         A Visit to Colombia in the Years 1822 & 1823. By Laguayra and Caracas, over the Cordillera to Bogota, and thence by the Magdalena to Cartagena.

      Philadelphia: printed by Thomas H. Palmer, for the author, 1826 - Octavo. Original grey boards, rebacked to style at an early date with white paper, paper label lettered in black re-imposed to spine, edges untrimmed. Ink-stamp of the American Philosophical Society to the title page, their bookplate to front pastedown. Wear to extremities, rubbing to boards, short closed tear to initial binder's blank; a very good copy. Aquatint frontispiece and plate. First edition. Duane (1760-1835), maverick Irish-American journalist and editor of the Democrat organ Aurora, travelled to newly independent Colombia to secure payment for arms and provisions sent to Bolivar's revolutionaries by Philadelphia merchant Jacob Idler, an affair passed over in silence in his important travelogue (such activities had forestalled his attempt to be selected US ambassador to Colombia in 1821). "By the time of writing knowledge of Latin America was still quite sketchy among its northern neighbours, and Duane saw one of his tasks as drawing up descriptions and taxonomies of what he had seen" (Barnwell, p. 56). There provides detailed observations of social conditions, politics, as well as flora, and consistently argues for the "future commercial and political importance of South America to the United States" (cited after Little, p. 175), in an echo of the emerging American policy which came to be know as the Monroe Doctrine. Institutionally well-held, but rare in commerce. Sabin 20994. See further: Barnwell, "William Duane and his 'Visit to Colombia' of 1823", in Irish Migration Studies in Latin America, Vol. 4, No. 2, March 2006; Little, Transoceanic Radical: William Duane: National Identity and Empire, 1760-1835.

         Fairy Legends and Traditions of the South of Ireland. [Part I] and Parts II and III

      first edition (parts II and III) and second edition (part I)3 vols. completesmall 8vo.[2 (title)], (iii)-xiv, [2 (verse dedication), 326;xii, 326, [2];xxxii, 300pp., 18 etched plates and numerous wood engravings by W. H. Brooke, very handsome contemporary half dark blue calf, spines panelled by gilt decorated raised bands, three panels gilt decorated with a large lyre tool inside a double fillet border, two panels direct gilt lettered gilt, marbled sides and endpapers with edges marbled to match, some foxing of the plates (mainly in in vol.1), else a fine fresh copy.A beautiful copy of the most important early collection of Irish fairy tales collected from the living folk culture. They were translated into German and published by the brothers Grimm, and so alerted Europe to the strong survival in Ireland of pre-Christian beliefs. The last volume contains a translation of Grimm's essay on Irish Elves and some Welsh tales to parallel the Irish. The first volume had been first published in 1825 and is most commonly found with the later volumes in a 'second edition' as here. Frederick Lewis Lloyd-Phillips (b.1823) of Penty Park, Co. Pembrokeshire and Aberglasney, Carmarthenshire in Wales was a J. P. and an officer in the local militia. The bookplate is probably that of his father James Lloyd-Phillips (1762-1837) of Penty Park, an army colonel.

Contemporary brown half morocco, spines lettered in gilt, marbled paper sides and endpapers, top edges gilt, others untrimmed. With the 20th-century bookplate of Robert Hayhurst, Lancashire retail chemist and bibliophile, to the front free endpaper of vol. I. Short closed tear to vol. II, another to vol.

Key to Vivian Grey complete with half-title and single advert leaf. First edition of Disraeli's first novel, a "sensational roman-à-clef in the then fashionable silver-fork style" published at the age of 21 (ODNB). The first section was published anonymously in two volumes in April 1826 to largely disfavourable reviews, despite its public popularity, due to its "combination of unmistakable self-exposure and reckless satire. moreover, Murray and Lockhart, men of great influence in literary circles, were deeply offended by the sneering treatment of characters based on them" (ibid.). Bound at the end of the final volume is the anonymous Key to Vivian Grey (10th ed., William Marsh, 1827), complete with original paper wrapper. This guide to the novel first appeared in the journal The Star Chamber on 24 May 1826. Many believe it was also written by Disraeli. Sadlier 734 & 734a; Wolff 1846. [Attributes: First Edition]

         Considerations on the state of the currency.

      London: John Murray 1826 - 8vo., iv + 128 + (2) + 129 - 152pp., title and one or two preliminary pages a little foxed, bound in the late 20th century in plain boards with handwritten title label on upper cover. A very good copy. First edition. Tooke's detailed examination of the causes which might affect prices. He concluded that price variations were due to circumstances directly connected with the commodities themselves, and not to alterations in the quantity of money. 'The work was at first meant as a sequel to the first part of the High and Low Prices>, published 1822, but he afterwards devoted it more especially to the consideration of the events between that date and 1826. He argues that the Bank ought to have unloaded, at any rate the greater part of, the 'Dead Weight Annuity' as soon as the increased issues for payment upon the purchases produced a bad effect on the exchanges, or to have raised the rate as a means of decreasing the redundant issue. Also that the non-publication of the Bank's accounts introduced too large an element of uncertainty, and suggests the obvious remedy. The greatest evils, however, were the precarious state of the country issues. 'Every country Banker ought to be called upon to give some pledge of his ability to pay on demand the Notes which he may be permitted to issue'. Further, 'there is one part of that circulation which ought not upon any footing or with any modification to be any longer tolerated. I mean the Notes under £5'. Some Country Banks grumbled if the public asked for gold; he rightly says: 'If there is any feeling of the harshness of demanding coin for the Notes of a Bank, such Notes are more or less imperfectly convertible'.'

Taf. mit 8 Abb.).Johann Friedrich Dieffenbach had already expressed the idea of closing palatal defects by mobilizing the edges of the bony defect (1826) in his translation of Ph. J. Roux's 'Mémoire sur la staphyloraphie' (1825)." "In 1826 Dieffenbach published his method for repair of clefts of the hard palate, thus extending the techniques of Joseph Roux (1780-1854) and von Graefe, who had treated defects of the soft palate. Dieffenbach was obviously familiar with von Graefe's work and also with that of Roux, whose articles he had translated into German medical literature. Dieffenbach's palatoplasty involved dissection of the mucosa, division, and immediate or gradual approximation of the bone by twisting silver or lead sutures passed through holes in the bone by needles of his design. He advised lateral relaxing incisions in 1826, but did not employ them until 1828." Robert M. Goldwyn Roux's "suture, probably a precursor of Veau's wire suture, was undoubtedly an advance. However, it produced severe, painful tension, which may have threatened the suture line in the sutured soft palate - particularly in patients with broad clefts. This changed with Dieffenbach's introduction of the lateral relaxation incision." "Dieffenbach also carried out the first attempt of total reconstruction of an almost completely absent soft palate from the buccal mucosa. This attempt failed, and a repetition of this operation, which was planned, did not take place." "Dieffenbach was an excellent observer. He had observed the stimulating effect of palates which bridged residual defects, and of obturators. He also noted that, in the course of time, the stimulating effect (in combination with the use of Cantharides-tincture) produced closure of residual openings as wide as a finger." Thorough as he was, Dieffenbach extensively studied the anatomical structures, including their comparative anatomy and their variations, to be able to arrive at conclusions on the basis of their functional effects he investigated also the problem of the development of cleft formation in embryos. With his friend Kleeberg, from Königsberg, he arrived at correct concepts regarding the time of cleft development, as well as its character as an inhibition-malformation of the palatine processes which had failed to unite." "Later, he also observed the favourable effect of staphylorraphy on decreased hearing. He was convinced that he cured patients who were deaf." cf. Eduard SchmidWeitere enthaltene Arbeiten von J.F. Dieffenbach:3) Die abgeänderte umschlungene Naht als schnelles Heilmittel bei Gesichtswunden (1927: pp.129-141)."Früheste Empfehlung der umschlungenen Naht mit Carlsbader Insektennadeln. Am Schluss dieses Aufsatzes fragt Dieffenbach, ob dieser Naht nicht bei Rhinoplastik, namentlich bei der deutschen Methode, mit Nutzen anwendbar sein sollte. An derselben Stelle machte er den Vorschlag, den vorderen Nasentheil, mindesten die Nasenflügel, aus der Oberlippe zu bilden, nicht etwas blos um Substanz zu gewinnen, als besonders um Nasenflügel zu bekommen, deren Ränder und äussere und innere Fläche behäutet ist". Zeis Nr. 511a "The earliest recommendation of the twisted suture with the 'Carlsbad insect needles'. At the end of this essay (p.141) Dieffenbach asks whether this type of suture could not be used in rhinoplasty, particularly in the German method. He also makes the suggestion that the upper lip should be used in the anterior part of the nose, at least for the ale, not only to gain extra tissue, but especially so that the alae would be covered with skin inside and out. This essay stems from the earlies time at which Dieffenbach began to take an interest in plastic surgery."

        [Cover title] Fragments relating to Travels in Mesopotamia, and the Trial for Libel, Buckingham versus Bankes.

      London: various publishers,, 1826-7. 3 works in one volume, octavo (209 x 130 mm). Original green linen, printed paper labels to spine and front board. 27 leaves of chapter headings with wood-engraved vignettes. Spine and board-edges sunned, label rubbed, superficial, partial splitting along joints, sometime repaired at the head of the spine, occasional light foxing. Very good. Self-exculpatory collection of fragments issued personally by Middle Eastern traveller Buckingham following his successful libel action against erstwhile travelling companion William John Bankes in 1826. Extremely uncommon, with no copies located in institutions, and one similar volume, inscribed to Nicholas Robinson, lord mayor of Liverpool from 1828 to 1829, traced in commerce: evidently Buckingham had the texts bound up for private distribution among influential individuals, as his feud with the East India Company over the forcible closure of his anti-HEIC Calcutta Journal in 1823 remained unresolved. The first text consists of the preliminary matter, vignette chapter headings and appendix from the octavo edition of his Travels in Mesopotamia (1827), though with various small changes, to the pagination and so forth, indicating that the types had been at least partially reset; the second text, entitled Opinions of Reviewers on the Travels in Mesopotamia, by J. S. Buckingham, is otherwise traced only in an 1870 edition of the catalogue of the Library of the Norfolk and Norwich Literary Institution; the third is the Verbatim Report of the Action for Libel in the Case of Buckingham versus Bankes […] (London: Cheese, Gordon, and Co., 1826), the only one of these texts which appears to have been publicly printed. Buckingham (1786-1855) spent much of his early life as a merchant sailor. Between 1813 and 1814 he travelled in Egypt, meeting Muhammad Ali Pasha, who despatched him to Bombay to develop trade with India, where he accepted a commission from the Imam of Muscat, but was forced to return to Egypt by the East India Company. From Cairo he travelled overland to India, where in 1818 he established his anti-HEIC Calcutta Journal, which resulted in his permanent expulsion five years later. His journey through the Middle East furnished the materials for a series of travel narratives published partly to fund legal battles in defence of his character. The first of these was Travels in Palestine, published in 1821, part of which Bankes, his partner on that leg of his travels, claimed to have been plagiarised from his notebook. On 25 October 1826 Buckingham was finally awarded £400 for libel, though he tendentiously claimed in the Appendix to his Travels in Mesopotamia, reprinted here, that his Indian assets were confiscated owing to the damage done to his reputation by Bankes, rather than by his own conduct as editor of the Calcutta Journal; after many years he was eventually granted an East India Company pension of £200 a year. An intriguing document from the career of a traveller who "spent far longer in the Arab world than most other occasional visitors" (Hamilton, The Arcadian Library, p. 96).
