         Verhandeling over het belang der vestingen voor den staat, het verband tusschen de kunst van versterken met de strategie; en de daaruit volgende noodwendigheid eener bevestigings-methode, gewijzigd, naar de hedendaagsche meer volmaakte wijze van aanval en verdediging, I-II. [TWO VOLUMES].

      Brussel, Brest van Kempen, Boekverkooper, 1826-27.. Two volumes. Octavo. Pp. 136; 257. Plus large folding fine lithograph plate showing in great detail complex fortification plan. Both volumes preserved entirely in the original condition, untrimmed and with ample margins, contemporary plain paper-covered limp boards, spines made of paper pasted over boards, manuscript shelf ticket in neat contemporary hand, old military institutional stamp to each title and shelf mark in red crayon; boards bit shabby, these of second volume partly detached. In a very good condition, rather fine interior, fine folding plate. ~ First edition. Very rare indeed. Jordan 2487. Johannes Gerrit Willem Merkes van Gendt, (1798-1859). Engineer Lieutenant Colonel, Knight of the Order of the Netherlands Lion, Knight of the Order of the White Falcon, Knight and later Officer of the Legion of Honour, Knight of the Swedish Order of the Sword, Knight of the Order of the Crown Württemberg. Prolific and brilliant writer he wrote extensively on military fortification, engineering and fortress warfare. He died as Mayor of the City of Gendt. It is interesting that his "Verhandeling over het belang der vestingen voor den staat" was published by a small, general publisher, more a bookseller than a publisher. The Bruxelles Bookseller Brest van Kempen was active as a publisher only 9 years (1821-1830) in which period he published 83 books, mostly on politics and law. [NOTE:] First edition of Merkes' "Het beleg van Maastricht in 1579" (Arnhem, 1827) is also available by Librarium.

         Tristan le voyageur, ou la France du XIVe siècle.

      A Paris, chez F. M. Maurice et Urbain Canel, 1825-1826. - Six volumes in-8, demi-veau brun, dos lisses ornés, titres dorés, tranches marbrées. Bel ex. Edition originale de cet ouvrage du juriste ultraroyaliste Marchangy (1782-1826). L'accueil que l'on fit à ce Tristan dit Quérard, se ressentit de l'impression défavorable que les opinions de l'auteur avaient laissée dans les esprits, malgré toute l'érudition qu'il renferme et un grand nombre de belles pages. La mort surprit Marchangy avant la publication des deux derniers volumes et des lignes de points terminent la fin du dernier chapitre. l'introduction ne laisse pas de doute sur le désir de l'auteur de faire une apologie des sources nationales, du monde et des institutions d'Ancien Régime. Comme dans La Gaule poétique, il offre ici encore un récit à mi-chemin entre la forme historique et la forme littéraire. Le héros qu'il met en scène parcourt la France du XIVe siècle, de chaumière en châteaux ; dans les villes et les campagnes, étudiant les pratiques, les coutumes et les croyances des provinces qu'il visite. Tristan raconte les pèlerinages et les fables populaires, les privilèges des corporations et des confréries. Déguisé en ménestrel on le voit pénétrer à la Cours de Charles-le-Mauvais et dans les manoirs des Clisson, combattre sous la bannière française les anglais en Bretagne et en Limousin ; suivre les leçons de l'Université, etc. De la bibliothèque André Ruel (avec ex-libris).

         Autograph letter signed to Reverend John McVickar of Columbia University

      Monticello, 30 March 1826 - Jefferson and the study of political economy: “No country on earth requires a sound intelligence of it more than ours ” In this fine unpublished letter, written just months before his death, Jefferson observes that he no longer reads books as demanding as those on political economy, adding, “I rejoice nonetheless to see that it is beginning to be cultivated in our schools.” John McVickar, the recipient of this letter, was one of the first professors of economics in America. As the first Professor of Moral Philosophy and Political Economy at Columbia University, he published a new annotated edition of John Ramsay McCulloch’s Outlines of Political Economy, which was to serve as a fundamental economics text for his students. He sent Jefferson a copy of the book on March 12, 1826, observing that Jefferson’s own writings touching on political economy are referred to in the work. McVickar added, “The zeal with which you always entertain schemes of public utility has emboldened me to break in upon the dignified retirement of your closing years” Thanking McVickar for the book, Jefferson observes, “Long withdrawn from the business of the world, and little attentive to its proceedings, I rarely read anything requiring a very strenuous application of the mind and none requires it more than the subject of political economy. I rejoice nonetheless to see that it is beginning to be cultivated in our schools. No country on earth requires a sound intelligence of it more than ours. The rising generation will I hope be qualified to act on it understandingly, and to correct the errors of their predecessors.” This is an exceptional Jefferson letter discussing the intellectual pursuits of his final year and commenting on the importance of the study of economics. 1 page. 4to. Integral blank with address panel in Jefferson’s hand and with his franking signature. Old folds. Excellent condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

         Account of observations made with a twenty-feet reflecting telescope: Comprehending, 1. Descriptions and approximate places of 321 new double and triple stars. 2. Observations of the second comet of 1825. 3. An account of the actual state of the great nebula in Orion, compared with those of former astronomers. 4. Observations of the nebula in the girdle of Andromeda.

      London: Richard Taylor, 1826. First edition, rare offprint issue, inscribed by Herschel. The work begins with a description of the reflecting telescope, with an 18-inch aperture and 20-feet focal length, the largest telescope in the world at the time, which was constructed in 1820 by John and his father William. Herschel used this telescope to make the observations which subsequently led to his fame as an astronomer. Part 2 contains the first accurate drawing of the Orion nebula. "One of the most impressive pieces of celestial cartography ever produced is Herschel's detailed drawing of the Great Nebula in Orion. By far the most striking of all nebulae ..." (Buttmann, The Shadow of the Telescope (1974), p. 101). "In 1826 Herschel published a monograph on the Orion nebula and one on the nebula in Andromeda, together with other observations made with the 20-foot telescope. The purpose of the paper on the Orion nebula was to determine from a comparison with earlier observations whether any noticeable changes in structure or brightness had occurred. The text is supplemented by a drawing of the nebula" (ibid., p. 50). The first part of this four-part paper comprises Herschel's second catalogue of double stars, building upon the catalogue of 380 double stars he had produced in collaboration with James South. OCLC lists four copies in US (Amherst, Smithsonian, US Naval Observatory, Yale). ABPC/RBH list just one copy (not a presentation copy). Provenance: Cambridge Observatory Library (ink stamp on outer front wrapper and title page, 'Observatory' written on insider front wrapper, 'Observatory Library Cambridge from the Author' written in Herschel's hand on title page, bookplate of Cambridge Observatory inscribed 'presented by J. F. W. Herschel, March 1831' on title verso). "Searching for a life occupation in his early years, [John] Herschel (1792-1871) turned briefly to chemistry, an interest terminated by a failed application for the chair of chemistry at Cambridge. He then tried the law as a profession in London, where he met astronomer James South, before returning to Cambridge, first as a subtutor in mathematics. In 1816, when Herschel took his master's degree, he was elected a fellow of St. John's College; in that same year, his ailing father appealed to John to carry on his work ... "John took up his father's last project, the discovery and observation of double stars. Originally, William had targeted them in the hope that if a stellar pair consists of one very remote component accidentally nearly aligned with a nearer one, this fortuitous coincidence could help determine the parallax of the nearer star. William's work demonstrated instead that double stars are mostly close pairs gravitationally bound; the goal of extending this project was the discovery of orbital motions. Herschel and South used refractors fitted with positional circles for making observations that led to their catalog of 380 double stars published in 1824, earning them the Gold Medal of the Astronomical Society and the Lalande Prize of the Paris Academy of Sciences ... "From 1825 to 1833, Herschel was deeply involved in astronomical observations, using one of the refractors obtained from South and a 20-ft. reflector with 18-in. aperture, still the world's largest telescope. The observations involved a prodigious amount of work, leading to the publication in a series of papers listing a total of 5,075 double stars, ... together with the general catalogue of nebulae and clusters derived from observations covering the whole northern sky using the sweeping survey technique devised by his father" (Biographical Encyclopedia of Astronomers, p. 493). A table in the present paper "exhibits, in eight columns, the approximate places of 321 new double and triple stars, for Jan. 1, 1825, with their estimated angles of position, distances, magnitudes, and other particulars. A great many of the double stars tabulated in this paper, exhibit the highly interesting and curious phenomenon of contrasted colours; in combinations of white and blue or purple, yellow, orange, or red, large stars, with blue or purple small ones: red and white combinations also sometimes occur, though with less frequency. In all these cases, the excess of rays belonging to the less refrangible end of the spectrum falls to the share of the large star, and those of the more refrangible portion to the small. Another fact not less remarkable, and rendering highly probable some other relation than that of mere juxtaposition, is, that though red single stars are common enough, no example of an insulated blue, green, or purple one has yet been produced" (Annals of Philosophy 12 (1826), p. 233). "Apart from William Herschel, his son John was the greatest discoverer of nebulae and star clusters. About his motivation he wrote in 1826 at Slough that 'The nature of nebulae, it is obvious, can never become more known to us than at present, except in two ways, - either by the direct observation of changes in the form or physical condition of some one or more among them, or from the comparison of a great number, so as to establish a kind of scale or graduation from the most ambiguous, to objects of whose nature there can be no doubt' [p. 487]. The first way had already been realised through his detailed observations of the Orion and Andromeda Nebulae [in the present paper]. The second - the study of a large number of objects - was mastered in the years 1825-33, reproducing and extending the observations of his father ... For his observations John Herschel used a reflector with an aperture of 18¼", which was completed in 1820. It used two mirrors, one made by his father alone and another one cast and ground under his father's supervision. The telescope resembles William Herschel's famous 'large 20ft'" (Steinicke, Observing and Cataloguing Nebulae and Star Clusters: From Herschel to Dreyer's New General Catalogue (2010), p. 52). Plates VII and VIII depict the Orion nebula, Plate VI the comet that appeared early in 1825 in the constellation Taurus and which Herschel observed in October. He noted that it "has no sharp, star-like centre, but a much brighter yet quite milky, round kernel of about 15 seconds to 20 seconds diameter, shading insensibly but almost suddenly away. Its coma is irregular. On the preceding side it extends further, and is partly detached ...Tail distinctly bifid, divided into two great branches which go off immediately from the nucleus at an angle of 45° with each other ..." (p. 487). Offprint from Memoirs of the Royal Astronomical Society. 4to (288 x 227 mm), pp. [ii], [1], 460-497, with three engraved plates numbered Vi-VIII (plates foxed, four small spots of glue used to attach bookplate to title verso with some show-through to recto and with offsetting onto first leaf of text). Later (early 20th century?) plain wrappers with original front wrapper bound in.

         Alexander-Newski-Gedächtniskirche auf dem Kapellenberg, Potsdam, 1856. Original-Photographie. Vintage. Salzpapier-Abzug. Verlagsseitig montiert. Köln, verlegt durch F.C. Eisen, 1856. Bildgröße 25 x 39 cm. Blattgröße 45 x 63 cm.

      - Auf dem Träger Blindstempel des Verlegers (der Träger an den Rändern leicht gebräunt sowie ein ganz kleiner Einriß im rechten weißen Rand, der Abzug im linken und unteren Rand etwas blass, sonst sehr gut erhalten). Rarissimum der frühen Potsdam-Photographie und sicherlich die erste großformatige fotografische Ansicht der berühmten Kirche. Die Kirche wurde zwischen 1826 und 1829 von Friedrich Wilhelm III. für die aus Russland stammenden Soldaten des Sängerchors der russischen Kolonie Alexandrowka errichtet und ist das älteste russisch-orthodoxe Kirchengebäude in Westeuropa. Die frühesten überlieferten Potsdam-Fotos stammen von sog. 'Reisephotographen', also solchen, die nicht ortsansässig waren. In Potsdam waren dies Michiels (1823-1887), der 1856 dort photographierte, und die Brüder Schneider, die erst 1859 Berlin und Potsdam bereisten. Michiels ist vor allem für seine Aufnahmen vom Kölner Dom bekannt, von seinen - hervorragenden - Potsdam-Photographien tauchten bisher nur ganz wenige auf. Vier Motive wurden 2006 im Rahmen der Ausstellung 'Auslöser Potsdam' gezeigt, weitere kennt man nur aus dem Inserat, das der Verleger Eisen 1858 in der Leipziger 'Illustrirten Zeitung' schaltete. Abgesehen von der Seltenheit ist das große Format und der ausgezeichnete Erhaltungszustand des hier angebotenen Abzugs bemerkenswert. Der seinerzeitige Preis betrug übrigens 2 Taler (Thaler) pro Blatt, das entspricht etwa dem Wochengehalt eines Webers um 1850 oder dem halben Monatslohn einer Stickerin oder Weißnäherin in Berlin. - Vgl. Auslöser Potsdam, 29 - Heidtmann, Wie das Photo., S. 55. 2000 gr. [Attributes: First Edition]

         Nachgelassene Schriften und Briefwechsel. Hrsg. von Ludwig Tieck und Friedrich von Raumer. 2 Bände. XVI, 780 S.; 784 S., 1 Bl. Marmor. Pappbde. d. Z. (Ecken etwas bestoßen) mit rotem Rückenschild.

      Leipzig, F. A. Brockhaus, 1826. - Erste Ausgabe der Nachlasssammlung des früh verstorbenen Solger (1780-1819), ein Schüler Schellings, war ein Hauptvertreter der Philosophie der Romantik. Er wurde 1811 Professor für Philosophie an der Berliner Universität. Diese 'Schriften' enthalten kleinere Aufsätze zur Philosophie und Ästhetik, Politik und Literatur, darunter bemerkenswerte Rezensionen zu Goethe, Jean Paul, Novalis, Klinger, Schiller u. a., ferner Tagebuchaufzeichnungen und Briefwechsel mit Tieck, Raumer, Schiller u. a. Während Tieck sich in manchen Vorreden ausschließlich auf Biographisches beschränkte, ist diese Solger-Ausgabe als ein letzter Freundschaftsdienst anzusehen; außerdem waren beteiligt Solgers Freund Krause, der jedoch vor Bearbeitung des zweiten Bandes starb, Hegel, der die philosophischen Abhandlungen betreute, und K. O. Müller, der die mythologischen Schriften durchsah. Tieck und Raumer schrieben als Herausgeber des Nachlasses: "Nur wenigen Menschen war dieser Zauber der Sprache verliehen. Auch dem Uneingeweihten sprach er klar und faßlich über schwierige Gegenstände." Die Philosophie Solgers bezeichnet den Übergang des speculativen Denkens von der Wissenschaftslehre Fichtes zu dem System Hegels. – Titel mit kleinem altem Bibliotheksstempel. Exlibris auf Vorsatz und Innendeckel. – Goed. V 14, 33, 1; Meyer 1619. [Attributes: First Edition]

         Gesammelte Schriften. Herausgegeben von Ludwig Tieck. 3 Bände. LXVI, 330 S.; 1 Bl., 418 S.; 2 Bl., 340 S. Gute Halblederbde d. Z. (leicht berieben, ein Kapital beschabt) mit Rückenschild und Rückenvergoldung.

      Berlin, G. Reimer, 1826. - Erste Gesamtausgabe. Enthält: Die Familie Schroffenstein, Penthesilea, Amphitryon, Der zerbrochene Krug, Das Käthchen von Heilbronn, Prinz Friedrich von Homburg, Die Hermannsschlacht, Erzählungen, Robert Guiskard sowie Gedichte. "Die verdienstvollen Kleist-Ausgaben von 1821 und 1826, die Tiecks Selbstlosigkeit und sein sicheres Erkennen von Dichtergenies bekunden, enthalten bezeichnenderweise keine pauschale Ehrenrettung Kleists; es ist im Vorwort von der 'tiefen Disharmonie' und den 'grellen Widersprüchen' seines Wesens die Rede; Tieck kann ihn trotz der unverhohlenen Bewunderung für den 'Prinzen von Homburg' und für die 'Erzählungen' nicht als vollendeten Dichter anerkennen. In keiner Weise will er Kleist allerdings als einen Gegenspieler Goethes oder Schillers darstellen" (Paulin, Metzler, S. 108). Die Herausgabe des Nachlasses hat sich über fünf Jahre hingezogen. Diese Ausgabe wurde – gegenüber den 'Hinterlassenen Schriften' – um fünf Dramen und um die 'Erzählungen' vermehrt und machte Kleist vor allem auch im Ausland bekannt. Die umfangreiche Vorrede Tiecks enthält nicht nur die Vita Kleists (1777-1811), sondern auch grundsätzliche theoretische Erörterungen zum Drama der Zeit. – Gelegentlich etwas fleckig. Gutes Exemplar. – Goed. VI 104, 13 und VI 44, 136 (Tieck); Sembdner 41; Hauswedell/Voigt, Abb. 44; Borst 1497.

The errors were corrected and the errata slip removed. cf.TPL 1205,1295, 1362. A.B. 13145,13144. Sabin 58860,58864, 58867. cf. Lande S1751,1385. Hill p255. A.B. 13142, Smith 7963, Hill p255,p.226. First Voyage: This was a very successful polar voyage. Parry had a relatively ice free year and penetrated further into the Canadian Arctic than any previous expedition. This was also the first expedition to intentionally winter in the Arctic. A major book in the history of Arctic exploration. Second Voyage: The year 1819 proved to be exceptionally ice free and Parry was able to penetrate through Lancaster Sound and Barrow Strait to Melville Island, into the heart of the Arctic, much further than had been reached previously. The ships successfully wintered on the south coast of Melville Island, the first to intentionally do so, and returned in 1820. In one season he had penetrated halfway to Bering Strait and had charted over a thousand miles of unknown coast. In doing so he demonstrated that an Arctic winter could be endured in safety if not comfort, and set the pattern for Arctic expeditions for a generation to come. Parry made two further attempts at the North-West Passage. In 1827 he tried to reach the North Pole and set a new northern record which stood until 1876. Throughout the whole of this work, the characteristics of the Eskimaux, and incidents of intercourse with them, absorb the attention of the writer. The work is a treatise on aboriginal life rather than a narrative of scientific discoveries. Twenty-two of the plates, from drawings by Captain Lyon, depict the Eskimaux, in costume, at work and play, hunting and fishing, singly and in family or social groups, children `at play'; and are among the most fascinating and charming of their kind. Third Voyage:Severe ice conditions forced this expedition to winter on the west coast of Baffin Island. 'Fury' was damaged in Prince Regent Inlet and was abandoned in August 1825, forcing the expedition home. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Berlin, G. Reimer, 1826. - Erste Ausgabe. Die "Novelle", eine der ersten bedeutenden Nachahmungen der Romane Walter Scotts, gilt als ein Höhepunkt des Tieckschen Spätwerks. Thema ist der religiöse Fanatismus. Tieck schildert nicht nur historisch getreu den Kampf der protestantischen Camisarden in Südfrankreich gegen die Truppen des katholischen Königs, sondern, verwoben mit einer fiktiven Handlung, wird ein Bild der geistigen Strömungen, politischen Aktivitäten und Motivationen der Zeit um 1705 gezeichnet. Willibald Alexis sagte von diesem bewunderungswürdigen Buch, es erwecke den Anschein, als habe Tieck damit das Geheimnis des historischen Romans entdeckt. Diese "unvollendete Großnovelle ist eine der ersten bedeutenden Nachahmungen der Romane Walter Scotts" (Paulin, Metzler, S. 89). – Fliegender Vorsatz mit Widmung. Sauberes Exemplar. – Goed.
