        Carte de la Rade et des Iles d’Hyéres

      Parigi 1792 - - le carte edite dal Depot de la Marine - Per contrastare lo strapotere navale della flotta inglese re Luigi XIV comprese la necessita di dotare le sue navi di carte nautiche in grado di renderle competitive con la marina antagonista. Un primo tentativo si ebbe con il Neptune Francais del 1693, ma solo agli inizi del diciottesimo secolo iniziò una grande campagna di rilievo delle coste del Mediterraneo e di altri mari, che portò alla realizzazione di numerose mappe, raccolte nel Dépot des Cartes et Planes de la Marine del 1720. Tuttavia il fondatore dell’idrografia francese può essere considerato a tutti gli effetti Jacques Nicolas Bellin (1703-1772) che per oltre cinquant’anni fu al servizio della Marina quale ingegnere e cartografo, tanto che gli venne assegnato il titolo quale primo "Ingegnere Idrografo della Marina" e quindi addirittura quello di "Idrografo Reale". Durante il suo servizio gli furono commissionati i rilievi delle coste francesi prima e successivamente quelle di praticamente tutto il mondo conosciuto. La sua produzione fu immensa e le sue carte nautiche, di grande qualità, apparvero in più edizioni fino oltre la fine del diciottesimo secolo. Questo grande fondo cartografico diede vita alla produzione ed alla vendita di carte navali, prima basate su quelle del Bellin, successivamente ampliate e migliorate da altri ingegneri di marina, sia francesi che non. Le carte nautiche venivano vendute separatamente e recavano tutte l’inconfondibile timbro con l’ancora e le corone (quando regnava la monarchia) del Depot Generale de la Marine. Raccolte delle stesse carte venivano invece pubblicate sotto il nome di Neptune Francois, monumentale opera che ebbe numerosissime ristampe fino alla metà del secolo successivo. Il seguente gruppo di carte è tratto da un volume denominato Neptune de la Méditerranée, riguardante il Mediterraneo. Dove possibile sono indicati il nome del cartografo, spesso un capitano di vascello, e la data della carta. Incisioni in rame, in eccellente stato di conservazione, salvo controindicazioni. Grande carta nautica della Provenza Meridionale con la baia di Hyéres e il suo arcipelago, composto dalle isole di Porquerolles, Port Cros e Levant. Leggero alone d’umidità in basso. To fight against the powerful English fleet, king Louis XIV decided to endow his ships with nautical charts that could enable them to compete with the enemy. The Neptune Francais, in 1693, can be considered a first attempt, but it was only at the beginning of the Eighteenth century that a campaign of study of the Mediterranean coasts and sea was started, leading to the realization of maps, collected in the Dépot des Cartes et Planes de la Marine in 1720. Nevertheless, the real founder of French hydrography can be considered Jacques Nicolas Bellin (1703-1772), who served for more than fifty years the navy as engineer and cartographer, which win him first the title of "Hydrographer Engineer of the Navy" and then of "Royal Hydrographer". His first commitment was to study the French coasts fisrt, and then of the whole world. His production was massive and his nautical charts, due also to their quality, were published in many edition until the end of the XVIII century. This allowance led to the production and the selling of sea charts, at first based on those from Bellin, then developed by other navy engineers. The sea charts were sold separately, all bearing the stamp with the anchor and the crowns of the Depot Generale de la Marine. Collections of the same charts have been published under the name of Neptune Francois, a monumental work which has been reissued many times until the half of the following century. The following group of charts is taken from a volume entitled Neptune de la Méditerranée, about the Mediterranean sea. Where possible, there is the name of the cartographer, very often the captain of the ship, and the date of the chart. Engravings, in excellent condition. Dimensioni 895 615mm

Internally little browned only, occasional minor spotting, a few marginal paper flaws, a few short closed tears. Provenance: Inscribed by the author on half-title of first volume "données à Monsieur du Déschaux par son ami De Saint-Pierre à Paris ce 22 juillet 1792 rue de la Reine Blanche"*; Octave Borelli, Marseille (armorial bookplate to front pasterdowns). A fine, unmarked and wide-margined set. ---- RARE DEDICATION COPY, inscribed and signed by the author, of the corrected and enlarged 4th edition of volumes 1 to 4, and first edition of volume 5, of the Etude de la Nature. Despite the rather 'scientific' title, this work is less an exact description of the nature than an apologia of philosophical optimism. De Saint-Pierre (1737-1814) is best known for his 1787 novel Paul et Virginie. He was elected to the Institut de France in 1795, and in 1803 to the Academie Francaise. The friendship with Jean-Jacques Rousseau did much to mold the views expressed in his Etudes de la nature. To the third edition 1788, he appended Paul et Virginie. De Saint-Pierre was one of the first to celebrate cultural primitivism, which became one of the central ideas of the Romantic movement. *In fact, it was house no. 16 of Rue de la Reine Blanche where Jacques-Henri Bernardin de Saint-Pierre lived when he wrote his famous novel Paul et Virginie in 1786 and La Chaumière indienne in 1790. It was still his home at the time he was appointed intendant of the Jardin des Plantes de Paris from 1792 to 1793.- Visit our website for more information and additional images.

        La Dalmazia con Le Isole Adiacenti

      Roma 1792 - Carta tratta dal "Nuovo Atlante Geografico Universale delineato sulle ultime osservazioni", edito a Roma dal 1792 fino al 1801, opera che la Calcografia Camerale commissionò al Cassini al fine di sostituire l’ormai obsoleto "Mercurio Geografico". Giovanni Maria Cassini, Chierico Regolare Somasco fu geografo e cartografo, ma anche intagliatore di architetture e prospettive - uno dei migliori discepoli di Giovanni Battista Piranesi - Cassini fu uno degli ultimi sferografi italiani del Settecento ed i suoi globi ebbero una notevole diffusione, come pure questo "Nuovo Atlante Geografico". Incisione in rame, finemente colorata nei contorni, in ottimo stato di conservazione. An uncommon map, published in the 'Nuovo Atlante Geografico Universale', with a decorative title cartouche, by Giovanni Maria Cassini, a Somasco monk. He was geographer and cartographer but he was also good at engraving architectural items and perspectives – he was one of the best disciples Giovanni Battista Piranesi had. Moreover, Cassini was one of the last artists to engrave spheres in the XVIII century and his globes were quite famous and widespread, and realized the most important Italian Atlas of the XVIII century; his maps always bear a cartouche, extremely rich in colours and details. Copperplate with fine later hand colour, in very good condition. Dimensioni 475 350mm

        The Winning of the West. Daniel Boone Edition with Roosevelt manuscript. Four volume set.

      Four volume set; 5 folding maps, 102 plates. Here, #2 of only 200 sets in the original grained green morocco which has reverted to brown at the spines; floral gilt corner devices, raised bands, gilt titled spine. Top edge gilt; others deckled. Ruled & floriated dentelles; remarkably preserved red suede end & fly sheets. One page folded legal leaf in Roosevelt's hand mounted following colophon reveals his editing wasn't reflective but done as he wrote (lined through words here bracketed): "The attitude of the British gradually changed from one of passive to active hostility. In 1792 and '93 they still (united) [to keep] the Indians to make [at] peace with the Americans, provided always there were no such concessions made to the latter as would endanger the British control of the fur trade. But by the beginning of 1794 the relations between the Great Britain and the United States had become so strained that open war was threatened; for the advisors of the king, relying on the weakness of the young Federal Republic had begun to adopt towards it that tone of brutal insolence, which [backed by] reflected well the general attitude of the British people toward all Americans, and which finally brought on the second war between the two nations. The British officials in Canada were quick to reflect the tone of the home government, and, as always in such cases, [some of them] the more zealous and belligerent went a little farther than they were authorized. On February 10th Lord Dorchester, Governor of Canada, in an address of welcome to some of the chiefs from the tribes of the north and west, said speaking of the boundary, [speaking of children, since my return, I find no appearance of a line] "Children since my return I find no appearance of a line remains; and the manner in which the people of the United States push on and act and talk [on this]?.I shall not be xxx surprised if we are at war with them in the course of the present year; and if so a line must then be drawn by the warriors?.we have acted in the most peaceable manner and borne the language and conduct of the people if the United States with patience; but I believe our patience is almost exhausted." (1) [At the Nor that] Of course such a speech, delivered to such an audience, was [merely incitement to war a direct] more than a mere incitement to war; it was a direct appeal to arms. [P] Nor did the [incitement] encouragement given the Indians end with words; for [Simcoe] in April, Simcoe, [who was in command in upper Canada, went to] the lieutenant-governor, himself built a fort at the Miami rapids, in the very heart of the hostile?. (1). Rives' Life and Times of James Madison, III, 418. A verified copy of the speech, from the archives of the London Foreign Office. The authenticity of the speech was admitted at the time by the British minister; yet, extraordinary to say, not only British, but American historians, had spoken of it as spurious."

        La Dalmazia con le Isole adiacenti

      Roma 1792 - EDIZIONE ORIGINALE, COLORITURA COEVA - Bella e accurata della Dalmazia, tratta dal "Nuovo Atlante Geografico Universale delineato sulle ultime osservazioni", edito a Roma dal 1792 fino al 1801, opera che la Calcografia Camerale commissionò al Cassini al fine di sostituire l’ormai obsoleto "Mercurio Geografico". Giovanni Maria Cassini, Chierico Regolare Somasco fu geografo e cartografo, ma anche intagliatore di architetture e prospettive - uno dei migliori discepoli di Giovanni Battista Piranesi - Cassini fu uno degli ultimi sferografi italiani del Settecento ed i suoi globi ebbero una notevole diffusione, come pure questo "Nuovo Atlante Geografico". Incisione in rame, coloritura coeva dei contorni, leggere bruniture, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. L'Atlante del Cassini fu ristampato dalla Calcografia Camerale nel primo quarto del XIX secolo, prima del 1839. Solo gli esemplari di prima edizione come questo sono stampati su carta vergata coeva e sono colorati a mano in epoca. Le tirature del XIX secolo sono già su carta meccanica, priva di vergelle, e generalmente in bianco e nero. - FIRST EDITION, CONTEMPORARY OUTLINE COLOUR - The Italian painter and engraver, Giovanni Maria Cassini, produced this map of the Dalmatian Coastline. The map extends from Istria to the Republic of Ragusa on the Adriatic Coastline and north to Bosnia and Croatia. Published in: Nuovo atlante geografico universale delineato sulle ultime osservazioni. Roma, Calcografia camerale, 1792-1801. Cassini was geographer and cartographer but he was also good at engraving architectural items and perspectives – he was one of the best disciples Giovanni Battista Piranesi had. Moreover, Cassini was one of the last artists to engrave spheres in the XVIII century and his globes were quite famous and widespread, and realized the most important Italian Atlas of the XVIII century; his maps always bear a cartouche, extremely rich in colours and details. Copperplate with fine original hand colour, some foxing, otherwise in very good condition. Dimensioni 475 350mm

      - Paris, Garnéry, An I [1792]. 2 volumes in-12, 468p & [4]-427p. Seconde édition de ces mémoires qui auraient été publiés la première fois à Londres en 1788, mémoires du personnage central de l'affaire du collier : la comtesse de La Motte (1756-1791). L'édition de Londres aurait été rachetée et brûlée à Sèvres. Cette histoire, rapportée dans la préface, avec la mention en plus sur le faux-titre "Cet ouvrage est réimprimé sur l'Exemplaire trouvé dans les papiers du sieur Laporte", nous parait fallacieuse. En effet, on voit mal l'édition imprimée à Londres ne pas avoir été du tout vendue là-bas mais avoir uniquement été envoyée en France ou alors rachetée directement à Londres pour ensuite être brûlée en bloc à Sèvres. La légende autour de cette première édition nous fait penser qu'elle n'a pas existé mais qu'il s'agit d'une légende pour discréditer encore plus la monarchie. Cette édition a deux tirages distincts, comme le montrent quelques petites différences entre notre exemplaire et les exemplaires marqués Seconde édition sur le titre : la page de titre change, une erreur p.422 est corrigée, une erreur est ajoutée au second tirage (la p.468 devient p.368). Ex-libris Pierre Sédille aux deux volumes. Cartonnage rose de l'époque, modeste, étiquette papier avec titre manuscrit, tranches marbrées. Dos passé, papier usé aux mors sans atteinte à la solidité (vélin en dessous), papier un peu roussi au tome 2, 1 mors intérieur du second tome ouvert avec un nerf de couture détaché du plat. Curieusement, les exemplaires de cet ouvrage en état d'époque sont toujours modestes (brochés, cartonnés ou "petites" reliures). Bon ouvrage autour de l'affaire du collier, en premier tirage.

        THE RUINS: OR, A SURVEY OF THE REVOLUTIONS OF EMPIRES ... Translated from the French ..

      London: Printed for J. Johnson, St. Paul's Church-yard, 1792.. Octavo, pp. [i] [ii: blank] [iii] [iv: blank] [v] vi-viii [ix] x [xi] xii-xv [xvi: blank] [1] 2-400, inserted frontispiece, two inserted folded maps (one of the Eurasian side of globe, other of celestial constellations), rebound in modern faux-lizard, spine panel stamped in gold, new endpapers. First edition in English. The main text ends with the phrase, "End of the First Part," but no further parts were written, or at least published. The author includes almost seventy pages of notes, plus an index. Celebrated political treatise in fictional form first published in French 1791, shortly after the French Revolution, although conceived before it. "The narrator's spirit is taken by a genius to a point in space above the Earth and, as the planet rotates, is able to witness the future development of civilization. An early use of the earth satellite notion, as well as that of time travel." - Locke, Voyages in Space 204. Volney was a French scholar and politician who, though born to the nobility, survived the Revolution, and though opposed to Napoleon's empire, survived his reign as well, and, during a visit to America, survived an absurd accusation of spying for an imminent French invasion of Louisiana. He spent four years in the Middle East, producing an account of his travels in 1787. The present work was his most influential, and is very much in the mode of Enlightenment thought: republican and universalist, trying to combine utopian longings and political moderation, chastened by an awareness of the transience of empires. In several of Shelley's poems can be heard echoes of the melancholy grandeur of Volney's vision. On his visit to America, Volney met with Thomas Jefferson, who wanted to bring out a new translation of the work, working anonymously in order to avoid accusations of endorsing Volney's (anti-Christian) prediction that all religions would eventually unite. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 220 and Voyages in Space V667. Negley, Utopian Literature 1144 and 1145 (citing, respectively, the French first edition of 1791 and an English edition of 1795). Top portion of text block water-stained, mostly along fore-edge, but extending into the text on about fifty pages; some foxing to inserted frontispiece (with some offset to title page) and the two maps, first and least few leaves, some scattered foxing, mostly early and late, a good copy overall of this important book.

        The Poetical Works of . the Scotch Milkmaid.

      Printed by John & Peter Wilson 1792 - FIRST EDITION, somewhat water-stained and heavily foxed in places, tear in D2 reaching across half the leaf but not affecting text, pp. 28,25-207 (25-28 repeated in pagination, but text and register are continuous), demy 8vo, uncut in half pebble-grained brown morocco by Kerr & Richardson, Glasgow, lettered in gilt on the spine, top edges gilt, others uncut, affected by damp, marked up throughout in a contemporary, or near contemporary hand (see below), bookplate of Catherine Kinnear. A very interesting copy, 'improved' by an early reader. 'Little published a collection of her poems in 1792, describing herself in the title as 'The Scotch Milkmaid'. Dedicated to the eleven-year-old countess of Loudoun, the volume was published by subscription and seems to have been moderately successful, reportedly earning the author £50. According to the subscription list Little sold nearly 800 copies to just over 650 subscribers, among whom were Burns and James Boswell. In a poetic dedication Little described herself as '[a] rustic damsel' who hopes that 'public candour' will rescue her work from the attacks of 'snarling critic[s]'. She experimented with a variety of poetic forms and wrote in both Scots and standard English; she tended to adhere rather more closely to conventional eighteenth-century subjects ('To Hope', 'To Happiness') in her English verse than she did when writing in Scots. The volume also gives some evidence of her reading; in addition to the tributes to Burns there is a poem on the letters of Lady Mary Wortley Montagu and Elizabeth Rowe, in which Little imagines 'MONTAGUE bright' praising Rowe for transcending her in 'virtue and wit'. In another, 'To a Lady', on the works of David Sillars, a working-class poet for whom Little had nothing but contempt' (ODNB). She did not take kindly to Dr. Johnson - 'Sam, that critic most severe' as he is styled in the Epistle to Robert Burns, and elsewhere his demise is seen as liberation for 'hamely, uncouth rhymes.' We have not been able to identify the annotator, although the ticks against the names of some of the subscribers may point to a social circle in which she (we think it is a she) may be identified. The hand is not of the clearest, and is sometimes vitiated by an imperfect quill. The annotations are of two sorts: comments on the quality of the poems, and improvements - indeed additions - to the text. The comments are mostly laudatory, once extravagantly so - 'equal to anything of Burns'. They are also tempered by criticism, and the 'improvements', interpolated in and around the text show that the writer had her (or his) own ideas about poetical style, wishing sometimes that the Milkmaid could have had some instruction. The annotator is well disposed towards Little, but it is not evident they were acquainted. Altogether this is a fascinating encounter of the 'Heaven-taught' and the polite. 'One critic has argued strongly that reading Little only through Burns obscures the range of her work and that she ought to be read in the larger Scots vernacular tradition of Ramsay and Ferguson' (ODNB), an argument we would concur with. Some of the lines singled out by the annotator are in fact rather good. Interestingly, there is no great disparity between the quality of her verse in English and Scots, the latter, if anything, tending towards the mawkish. The book is tolerably scarce in ESTC: only 3 copies are reported in Scotland, NLS, and Glasgow University (bis), though 'Private Collections may indicate others. (Johnson 542; ESTC T126549)

Giovanni Maria Cassini, Chierico Regolare Somasco fu geografo e cartografo, ma anche intagliatore di architetture e prospettive - uno dei migliori discepoli di Giovanni Battista Piranesi - Cassini fu uno degli ultimi sferografi italiani del Settecento ed i suoi globi ebbero una notevole diffusione, come pure questo "Nuovo Atlante Geografico". Incisione in rame, finemente colorata nei contorni, in ottimo stato di conservazione. An uncommon map, published in the 'Nuovo Atlante Geografico Universale', with a decorative title cartouche, by Giovanni Maria Cassini, a Somasco monk. He was geographer and cartographer but he was also good at engraving architectural items and perspectives – he was one of the best disciples Giovanni Battista Piranesi had. Moreover, Cassini was one of the last artists to engrave spheres in the XVIII century and his globes were quite famous and widespread, and realized the most important Italian Atlas of the XVIII century; his maps always bear a cartouche, extremely rich in colours and details. Copperplate with fine later hand colour, in very good condition. L. Piloni, "Carte geografiche della Sardegna", p. 194, tav. LXXX Dimensioni

        A NARRATIVE OF THE EXTRAORDINARY SUFFERINGS OF MR. ROBERT FORBES, HIS WIFE AND FIVE CHILDREN. DURING AN UNFORTUNATE JOURNEY THROUGH THE WILDERNESS, FROM CANADA TO KENNEBECK RIVER, IN THE YEAR 1784

      Portland Printed, Reprinted at Exeter: Henry Ranlet, 1792. 23,[1]pp. Half title. Contemporary paper wrappers, restitched. Expert restoration with facsimile to half title and terminal leaf. Very good. In a red morocco box. Robert Forbes, an American residing with his family in Canada on the Chaudiere River, departed overland in mid- March 1784 with three Dutch guides, intending to relocate his family to a settlement on the Kennebec. Ten days into the journey, Forbes, his wife and five children were tricked, robbed and abandoned by their guides. Struggling on alone, they were assisted by a local Native American, who supplied them with moose meat and directions. But by April 12th, with supplies dwindling and terrain too difficult for his wife and all but his oldest child, Forbes made camp and left his wife to seek help. Travelling by raft and foot and surviving on a couple of ounces of moose meat and their leather shoes, Forbes and his eldest son were found by hunters on April 22. A rescue party for his wife and children was immediately raised, but the camp could not be reached until June 2, fifty days since being left at camp with little to no supplies. Emaciated and weak, remarkably, Forbes's wife and one child survived. Forbes' tale evidently struck a chord with the locals, and his narrative was set to paper by Arthur Bradman. The work was first published in Portland in 1791, followed by the present Exeter printing the following year. Editions in Windsor (1792), Norwich (1793), Worcester (1793) and Philadelphia (1794) followed. All editions prior to the Philadelphia edition are very rare; only three institutional examples of this Exeter printing located in OCLC. BRISTOL B7942. SHIPTON & MOONEY 46397.

      Pennsylvania, 1792. 13 x 8. "Manuscript, unsigned, 3 pages conjoined, 13"" x 8"", dated July 29 - September 14, 1792, depicts a journey through Lycoming, Pennsylvania region. Document shows heavy folds with some tearing and chipping along folds, overall very good condition. A full translation with heavy notations original spelling of the writer and adding additional research. Broken down by the day's travel, it is headed ""Memorandum / viz"" beginning on July 29th, 1792, with an entry for each day, no point of origin. In part the journal entry reads, ""July 29, I set from Mr. Winters near the mouth of Lycoming Creek [near Williamsport, PA] on my way to Tyoga [near Trout Run PA]. Up said creek to Kyles about 15 miles where I got some necessaries. 30th - Left Kyles with an intention to go to Tyoga N.N.E. Course about five or six miles came to the place where the late storm fell the timber so as to be most impossible to travel with a horse. I attempted to go through till night. Struck fire and lain in amongst the timber . . . August 3 - Travers'd the same and examined the Soil Timber, Etc. for the Course of the 4th 5th 6. the land has many small streams running into Lycoming & the head of the first & second forks of Pine Creek. The timber in this land I suppose of 15,000 acres chiefly of Beech, Sugar, Trees, Maypole, Black Oak, Spruce and some White Pine."" It is believe this area is Buttonwood, Liberty, English Center, PA. ""14th . . . I fell in with about 9,000 or 10,000 acres of execellent land . . . 20 - Rain'd built a hut and kept close all day. 21st- Examin'd the said land and suppose there to be about 12,000 acres. The land is superior to the rest that I have seen. The timber chiefly is of black and white walnut , white and black ash and black and white oak . . . 28th - I took the Course from Cononsaw Creek nearly N.E. Course to the York Line . . . 31st -Up to the river to the head of each branch where there is very large body of land. Rich soil & well timbered found by examining that Mr. Brodhead had suveyed on Eastermost branch to the Head but had not surveyed on the West Branch . . September 1st - took a N.E. Course till I came near the York (New York) line to Mr. Strawbridges, where seed Mr. Adlum's party . . . 7th Went out to where Mr. Chapman was. Delivered him the warrants & 175 and returned Tyoga Point . . . The journal makes mention of various parts of PA including Cedar Run, Harrison St. Park, Ansonia, Watrous, the Allegheny River, Ellisburg, Genesee, Ramsey, Raymond, Tunkhannock, Rome, Athens, Camptown and more.Moravian missionaries began trickling into the Lumber Heritage Region as early as the 1740s setting up missions along the West Branch of the Susquehanna River and subsequently following the upper Allegheny River. The arrival of the Europeans immediately changed the landscape and fostered conflicts with Native Americans. However, following the Native American land cessions of 1754 and 1768, dispersed European family farms quickly surfaced mostly within the West Branch valley. The new European arrivals sustained themselves agriculturally, clearing land for family farms on the southeastern fringes of the LHR. Soon, a handful of industrial operations began to emerge, evidenced by a Williamsport sawmill dated to 1773. For these earliest farmers, the massive trees around them were a hindrance, an obstacle to be cleared and burned. These initial operations signaled the beginning of an industry soon to define the history and culture of the Lumber Heritage Region. The Land Sales Act of 1792 dramatically decreased the price of land and opened over 4,000,000 acres for purchase. These early mills fulfilled local needs for building materials, but lumbermen soon uncovered a niche downstream where additional settlers peppered the landscape. As a result, crudely built lumber rafts conveyed the first lumber on its adventuresome ride down the Allegheny River to Pittsburgh. All types of lumber, including dimension and square timber, journeyed down the West Branch and Allegheny during this Pioneer Era. Rafting became pivotal in the development of the early lumber industry, with early LHR rafting streams deemed public highways by state legislation in 1798. Small-scale mills and rafting marked the beginning of an economic base for the LHR, planting the seeds for a burgeoning industry."

T. Wood of the Crystal Palace, tipped-in botanical samples and much more.

      n.p., 1792-1879. 4to. Original nineteenth century embossed and polished full calf (black), decorative borders, raised gilt bands on spine, gilt inner dentelles, red silk moiré endpapers, AEG. 88 leaves (unnumbered), title leaf with gilt embossed border, mounted title engraved card of an explorer holding a flag with the words: "Album." This exquisite and scarce Victorian album contains numerous pen & ink drawings, a hand-painted pencil drawing, three nicely painted watercolors (1 signed), ALS, two large folding broadsides, 2 large folding engravings (1 hand-colored) and more. This album comprises a wide variety of material and mediums, with an emphasis on the French Revolution, the Napoleonic era, and the Third Empire. Just after the title, the compiler has included a nicely executed pen and ink of Napoleon, a splendid miniature painting of Chinese Junks sailing below what appears to be the Porcelain Tower of Nanjing, a hand-painted pencil sketch of a young British officer in red coat with sword signed by William J. Morin, and dated 1847; and an illustration of the Diable Boiteux by Antoine Johannot, from the book by Jules Janin (1840). These are followed by three nicely executed watercolor paintings by Alfred Pascal, the first dated 1847 showing a typical French village based on an engraving by Jean Ouvrier (1725-1784); the second of a Villa set deep in the woods, and the last a beautifully execute winter scene in sepia tones. Of special interest is the included letter signed by Edouard Laboulaye June 30, 1874, thanking a friend for providing a letter of introduction, and urging a visit to Versailles—Laboulaye (1811-1883) is perhaps best remembered as the originator and early fundraiser for the Statue of Liberty ornament, designed by Frederic Bertholdi, and built by Gustave Eiffel. Of note is that the compiler has tipped-in a 50 Livres Bill dated Dec., 792, with Lady Liberty seated. The second letter, according to a note in French pasted on the 2nd leaf, was written by a very young Leopold II of Belgium (1835-1909) to his mother Louise D'Orleans (1812-1850), and that it had been compared to the other examples. Also included are a hand-colored engraving of an Opera costume for Mademoiselle Caroline; 2 large folding broadsides comparing the rise and fall of Napoleon III, with other French historical events; a large folding engraving of the return of Marie-Therese Duchesse d'Angouleme to Bordeaux by Villain; a housing receipt for Versailles dated 1814; pieces of musical scores, one composed by Marie Saglioni, dated March 29, 1849; a nicely hand-colored engraving of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and a few laid-in steel engravings. In addition, there are three different printed poems tipped-in, one Souvenir de Roumare, Paris, Plon, 1866 a presentation copy, and two others. The tipped-in botanical samples are all annotated as to place and date of when they were collected, with the first in 1848 from the Grand Jardin, while later samples from the gardens of Maria-Therese in 1878. Minor rubbing to binding with edge wear, inner hinges starting, beautiful and well-preserved example of the finest Albums of the period.
