Lettre autographe signée « Marie-Thérèse », Edimbourg, 15 février 1831, à sa cousine, 1 page in-4. « Les malheurs dont ma famille et moi sommes accablés... » « Ma cousine, j'ai été fort sensible à votre souvenir et à l'assurance de tous vos sentiments. Je n'ai jamais doutée que les liens du sang qui nous unissent ne vous fassent partager tous les malheurs dont ma famille et moi sommes accablés ; mais j'ai été bien aise d'en recevoir la confirmation par votre lettre. Je n'oublie pas le plaisir que j'ai eu à vous connaître dans les temps plus heureux pour nous. Mon mari me charge de vous remercier de tous vos voeux et de vous faire tous ses compliments. Nous faisons les souhaits les plus réels pour votre félicité, recevez en l'assurance positive ainsi que de tous les sentiments que je vous porte pour la vie en vous embrassant ma cousine. Votre attachée cousine Marie-Thérèse ». En juillet 1830, Charles X signe les ordonnances qui provoquent la Révolution de 1830. Le roi ayant résolu d'abdiquer, Madame Royale aurait pu devenir le 2 août 1830, reine de France. En effet, retiré avec la cour au château de Rambouillet, son époux, le dauphin Louis-Antoine de France, aurait pu hériter du trône sous le nom de « Louis XIX », si l'abdication de son père Charles X n'avait pas été faite en faveur de son petit-fils Henri d'Artois, duc de Bordeaux et neveu du dauphin, nonobstant le principe d'indisponibilité de la Couronne de France.Chassée par l'arrivée de Louis-Ph … [Click Below for Full Description]

PARMENTIER (A. A.)
Paris, Imprimerie Royale, 1778, in 8°, de LIII- 1f. 639pp., pl. veau raciné époque, dos lisse orné, bel exemplaire très frais (ex-libris mss. 18e Aubry Doct. Med. Monspeliensis) Edition originale recherchée de cet ouvrage fondamental sur la fabrication du pain. Le célèbre pharmacien rédigea ce traité en préambule à la fondation d'une Ecole de Boulangerie à Paris, qu'il dirigea avec l'assistance de Cadet de Vaux à partir de 1780. Il y dispensa un enseignement sur les manières les plus appropriées de faire le pain en gaspillant le moins de matière possible. Après avoir fait un historique du métier de boulanger, de l'origine et de la nature du blé, Parmentier développe ici de manière scientifique toutes les techniques nécessaires à la fabrication du pain en décrivant précisément toutes les étapes de son élaboration : mouture des farines, conservation, usage du levain, confection de la pâte, cuisson des différents pains (épeautre, seigle, méteil, orge, maïs, sarrasin, pommes de terre). Il y préconise aussi un nouveau procédé de mouture économique qui augmente le rendement en farine. ¶ Quérard VI. 605 - Vicaire, 656 - Oberlé, Fastes, n°813 - Bitting p.357.

[Stürmer, Ignaz von (ed.)]
Vienna, Joseph Edler von Kurzböck, 1778. Small folio (214 x 286 mm). (22), 87, (1) pp. With engraved title-page, engraved vignette to printed title, and engraved head- and tailpieces to preliminaries. Late 19th century half calf, spine rebacked. A specimen from the Viennese Imperial Oriental Academy founded in 1754, published anonymously but probably edited by the school's most brilliant pupil of the time, Ignaz von Stürmer, who had access to the well-stocked library of Bernhard von Jenisch. It would seem that this publication is the first to offer a chrestomathy devoted specially to Persian literature. The work includes 22 fables from Jâmî's Bahâristân, a qasîda by Sa'dî, a selection from 'Attâr's Pand-nâmah, and 12 biographies from Jâmî's Bahâristân. The Persian text is faced by a Latin translation. This constitutes the first use of the improved Meninski types, then a century old but rediscovered in 1748. The types were revised, after designs by the Syrian merchant Yusuf Sasati, by the printer Joseph von Kurzböck, who expanded the font to 520 characters. The publication of the Anthology was intended as a test run both for the typesetter and the editors of the re-edition of Meninski's Thesaurus. - The engraved title-page depicts an allegory of Virtue against the backdrop of the Hagia Sophia, emphasizing the Turkish-Austrian relationship despite the work's Persian interest. In 1784 Stürmer would a Turkish work, the Tarih-i Fanai, with the Meninski types. - Binding professionally repaired. Some brownstaining throughout.

Edinburg: Apollo Press, 1778. Very Good+ on average. Some scuffing to edges and spines. Nice solid set. BELL'S EDITION The POETS of GREAT BRITAIN 1778 - 1801 46 Volumes Description: 5" tall ~ full olive green (browned spines) leather over marbled ~ white end papers ~ illustrated with steel engravings ~ some scuffing to bindings but the books are tight and sturdy. It appears that the dates are not all in chronological order. Vol 9 has the wrong authors listed on the spine. I have taken photos of what the books look like on a shelf and photos of one volume as an example to show the frontispiece and title page. With each author it appears they start with an engraving of that author, accompanied with an engraved frontispiece. When the author spills over into a new volume they do not repeat the author engraving but do have another engraved frontispiece for the subsequent book. Superb literary library to have. Many obscure poets in this rare collection. Great chance to acquire many of these volumes in one purchase! Second edition.

(BRENTANO GRIANTA, Carlo.)
Nell'Indie, (ma forse Milano), 1778. in-8, pp. 37, legatura in carta decorata coeva. Edizione originale, rarissima. L'autore è il conte Carlo Brentano Grianta (Melzi, II, p.310), amministratore dei teatri milanesi in epoca napoleonica, che poco più che ventenne si dilettava nel pubblicare poemetti anonimi e versi sciolti. Qui descrive una gustosissima vicenda con risvolti giudiziari realmente accaduta a Milano fra un'innominata cantante, il suo impresario e un pappagallo geloso che, a quanto pare, parlava quattro lingue. Il curiosissimo poemetto inizia citando le futili origini delle dispute come l'Iliade e la Secchia Rapita: con chiaro omaggio al Tassoni, nomina il popolo di Modena "Geminiano",. Sia il Melzi che il Parenti, pur attribuendo correttamente l'opera, la datano erroneamente 1678 invece che 1778. Il luogo di stampa falso viene forse spiegato nella dedicatoria, in cui l'Autore non solo assicura l'ignoto Conte suo amico che i fatti riportati sono veri, ma scherza sul fatto che per difendere la Contessina sua consorte dalle attenzioni maschili non sarebbero bastati tutti i pappagalli delle Indie. Opera non censita in alcuna biblioteca italiana. Buon esemplare, fresco e marginoso in bel cartonato decorato con arabeschi arancioni e dorati in rilievo.. .Melzi II, p. 310; Parenti, p. 104..

Schuyler, Philip
Albany, NY, 1778. 9" x 7", 1 p., docket on rear, professionally repaired on verso, small fold tears taped, no text affected. Toned, strong hand on both sides of deep ink visible. "Ph. Schuyler" signature is powerful, clear and heavily underlined. The generous General Schuyler is bequeathing his Congressional salary to the church. Philip John Schuyler, (Nov 1733 - Nov 1804), was commissioned one of the four major generals in the Continental Army, later became a political leader, and member of the Continental Congress. Born into a prominent New York family, Schuyler served in the provincial army during the last French and Indian War (1755-60), rising to the rank of major. After the war he went to England (1761-63) to help negotiate the settlement of colonial war claims. He served in the New York Assembly (1768-75) and was a delegate to the Second Continental Congress in Philadelphia (1775-77). When the Revolutionary War broke out in 1775, Schuyler was again a member of the Continental Congress (1778-80), and then served in the New York state senate (1780-90). He campaigned actively in New York for ratification of the new U.S. Constitution, and was one of his state's first two U.S. senators. In 1791 he was defeated for reelection by Aaron Burr, and returned to the state senate. He recaptured his seat from Burr in 1797, but was forced by ill health to retire less than a year later. He was the father of Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton and the father-in-law of Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton.

(ADB XLI, 222). Der Volkswirt Waser (1742-1780) gilt als einer der Begründer der modernen Statistik, zugleich hatte er offenbar einen schwierigen Charakter und ein bedenkliches Verhältnis zu fremdem Eigentum. Offenbar stahl er über Jahre hinweg Bücher und Dokumente aus Bibliotheken und Archiven, was ihm schliesslich zum Verhängnis wurde. Als er vertrauliches, statistisches Material nach Göttingen weitergab, wurde dies als Geheimnisverrat gewertet und Waser in einem bis heute umstrittenen Prozess zum Tode verurteilt. - Gut erhalten, Einband berieben, innen sauber.

[Loyalty Oath]
[Philadelphia: Printed by John Dunlap, 1776] Imprint supplied by EVANS, however this title is the revised oath of allegiance adopted Feb. 3, 1778. Broadside. 21 x 16 1/2 cm. Single sheet with two copies of the oath printed on the sheet, uncut and unused. The upper has small loss of type, affecting a letter or two, but not the sense of the text, with paper repair; some faint old staining. Although the 1776 oath appears in the Journals of Congress, the 1778 oath is apparently the only edition to be separately printed. "Form of renunciation of allegiance to Great Britain, which all civil and military officers were required to sign." - ESTC. EVANS 15183. ESTC: Huntington, Hist. Society of PA, NYPL, Lib. of Congress. The text of the original oath was recorded in the Journals of the Continental Congress in October 1776 [see vol. 6, pp.893-4], listing all thirteen states and including the phrase "and I do swear." The revised version, printed here, appears in the Journals on Feb. 3, 1778. According to Nellie Waldenmaier in her book "Some of the Earliest Oaths of Allegiance to the United States," [Genealogical Pub. Co.: 2009, p.6: "The report of this committee [consisting of Daniel Roberdeau, Abraham Clark and William Ellery, which produced the newly worded version] also recommended that this oath be signed in duplicate and one copy be kept by the Deponent and the other copy, in the case of the Military Line, 'be sent to the commander in chief and by him to the Secretary of Congress...."

(Bible. Psalms)
London: Printed by Richard Hett, for the Company of Stationers, 1778. 8vo, pp. 236, [4]. Contemporary red morocco, boards bordered with a gilt roll, spine gilt in compartments with large urn tools and small cornerpieces, marbled endpapers, edges gilt. One or two minor spots. Extremities just the slightest bit rubbed, a scattering of marks to boards. Ownership inscription of Catherine Mary Poulett, Hinton St George, November 1810 to initial blank. A lovely binding on a scarce printing of the Brady & Tate Psalms. Richard Hett produced an edition like this at least once every two years between 1771 and 1785; all are on the scarce side but this one unusually so, with ESTC locating just five copies (Marsh's Library, Ripley Castle, the Soane Museum, St Deiniol's, and Winchester Fellows), making it the only Hett printing to have no representation in the BL, or indeed any of the UK copyright libraries.

Compte rendu de l'expédition franco-espagnole envoyée pour mesurer le degré de latitude près de l'équateur, à Quito (Equateur). Cette expédition qui dura 10 ans prouva par comparaison que la terre était plus plate aux pôles. La Condamine revint par le Brésil et l'Amazone, donnant ainsi pour la première fois une description scientifique du parcours du fleuve avec les latitudes, mais aussi des observations judicieuses sur les indigènes. Cette édition augmentée contient pour la première fois la "Lettre de M.D.L.C. à M*** sur le sort des astronomes qui ont eu part aux dernières mesures de la Terre depuis 1735". ¶ Sabin 38484 - Borba de Moraes p.446 " in 1735 the French Academy of Sciences decided to send two scientific expeditions, one to the Arctic region and the other to the Equator, for the purpose of measuring one exact degree in order to determine the size of the globe... As the equatorial line lies near Quito, the expedition decided to take its measurements there. When... they returned to France, where their results... revealed that the earth was flatter round the Poles ... The map of the Amazon region is especially noteworthy since it is the first to have been drawn in which the latitudes were observed. It shows, by dotted lines, the course of the river according to Father Fritz's map, and reveals his mistakes indicat … [Click Below for Full Description]

Excelente mapa de las colonias británicas del sur, que se extiende desde Filadelfia y la Bahía de Delaware en el noreste, hasta Cape Lookout, Beaufort y el asentamiento galés en Carolina del Sur en el sureste y se extiende al oeste para mostrar todas las montañas de Allegheny y una gran parte del río Ohio, basado en el trabajo seminal de John Mitchell. El mapa de Zatta, aunque se publicó por separado como parte del Atlante Novissimo de Zatta, es en realidad una de las 12 secciones que comprenden la edición italiana del mapa de Mitchell de América del Norte. La edición italiana está ricamente ilustrada con anotaciones que no se encuentran en la edición en inglés de Mitchell. La escala del mapa es idéntica a la de Mitchell. El mapa de América del Norte de John Mitchell fue el mapa estadounidense más importante del siglo XVIII y es la base de prácticamente todas las disputas y tratados sobre límites que comienzan con la guerra Francesa e India.
