        Atala, ou Les Amours de Deux Sauvages dans le désert

      Troisième édition revue et corrigée, 1 vol. in-18 reliure de l'époque demi-basane marbré, dos lisse orné à décors de lampe antique, Chez Migneret, Et à l'ancienne Librairie de Dupont, Paris, An IX (1801), xxiv-207 pp. Dans cette rare troisième édition, Chateaubriand a inséré un "Avis sur la présente édition", une "Lettre publiée dans le Journal des Débats et dans le Publiciste" et une longue Préface. Par comparaison avec notre autre exemplaire de la troisième édition, on peut apercevoir qu'au sein d'une même édition des modifications typographiques ou de fond ont été apportées. Ainsi, dès la page "vi", cet exemplaire contient le texte suivant : "C'est sur la dernière phrase de cette apostrophe, que tombe la remarque du critique" ; dans l'autre version, on peut lire : "C'est la dernière phrase de cette apostrophe, qui a excité la gaîté de la Décade". Des modifications typographiques (dans une citation en grec, ou dans la pagination des premiers feuillets), il semble ressortir nettement que la présente version de la troisième édition est antérieure à celle de l'autre exemplaire. Bon état (coins frottés, le douzième cahier a été relié entre les cahiers 9 et 10) pour cet exemplaire en stricte reliure du temps de cette importante édition, qui révèle l'attention permanente que Chateaubriand portait au polissage de son oeuvre...

        De l'éduction d'un homme sauvage, ou des premiers développemens physiques et moraux du jeune sauvage de l'Aveyron

      Paris, Goujon fils, 1801. 1801, 1801, in-8, de (4), 1 portrait et 100 pages, , Rare première édition d'un texte fondateur de la pédopsychiatrie. En 1797 un jeune enfant sauvage, vivant depuis sa petite enfance entièrement coupé de tout contact humain, fut aperçu dans la région de Laucane. Après plusieurs apparitions et fuites, il se rendit spontanément, en 1800, au village de Saint-Sernin. L'enfant fut amené à Paris et présenté à la Société des observateurs de l'homme, fondée en 1799 par Sicard, Jauffret et de Maimieux. Il fut confié à Jean Itard, pionnier de l'oto-rhino-laryngologie, créateur de la première école française d'otologie et fondateur de l'otologie. Ce dernier tentera de pallier les déficiences linguistiques du jeune sauvage de l'Aveyron au travers d'une démarche éducative qui visera notamment à ouvrir socialement le jeune garçon, baptisé Victor. Le texte publié en 1801 forme le rapport enthousiasme d'Itard sur la méthode employée pour parvenir à éveiller Victor au monde humain, une méthode caractérisée de sensualiste et héritée des Lumières et notamment de Condillac, dont Itard se servait pour l'apprentissage des sourds et muets. Bien que cette tentative empiriste soit vouée à l'échec, l'entreprise d'Itard reste fondatrice et son ouvrage fondamentalement novateur. Imaginant un système pédagogique nouveau basé sur une interaction originale entre élève et éducateur et couplé d'une méthode d'observation basée sur des présupposés médicaux et philosophiques, cet ouvrage participa à faire d'Itard un personnage emblématique de la psychiatrie infantile. L'aventure entreprise par Itard, malgré la violente condamnation des premiers psychiatres français, Pinel et Esquirol, de Victor à un idiotisme insolvable, ouvre la voix à l'éducation des retardés mentaux. Bruno Bettelheim considèrera en 1967, dans La Forteresse vide, le rapport d'Itard sur le jeune sauvage de l'Aveyron comme la première prise en charge institutionnelle d'un autiste, et sa première véritable description. Bel exemplaire, propre. Norman, I, p. 418, n° 1144

        Kodo zuroku [trans.: Illustrated Book on the Smelting of Copper]

      27 full-page woodcuts (14 of which are color printed) by Tokei Niwa. 14, 6 folding leaves. Large 8vo, orig. wrappers (minor worming), orig. block-printed title label on upper cover, new stitching. Osaka: Sumitomo clan, ca. 1801-11. First edition of an important and fascinating illustrated work on the history and technology of smelting copper in Japan, which by the late 1670s had become the largest copper producing and exporting country in the world (replacing Sweden and replaced by China in the 1740s), with much of the copper being exported by the Dutch East India Company to European and Asian markets. Copper mining, refining, and exporting were the early primary businesses of what became the Sumitomo Corporation. Masuda (d. 1821), who describes himself as a "slave" (employee) of the Sumitomo clan of Osaka, provides a history of the introduction of liquation (or Seiger process; it had been invented in the early 15th century in Nuremberg) into Japan in 1591 by a Portuguese. The information was transmitted to Riemon Soga (1572-1636), a metallurgist and brother-in-law of Masatomo Sumitomo, the founder of the famous company. Japanese metallurgists modified the Seiger process and called it nanban-buki. The process spread throughout Japan and was first used to extract silver. By the middle of the 17th century, many silver mines had been exhausted and copper mines began production. Soon, there were more than 200,000 miners and 100,000 charcoal producers at 50 copper mines throughout Japan. The fine woodcuts are by Tokei Niwa (1760-1822), a prominent artist of the period, and 14 are color printed. They depict the stages of copper production from mining and hand sorting to smelting to casting into bars. Three of the plates show the steps of smelting the ore to produce black copper; the removal of silver is depicted on three further plates. The final 13 woodcuts, in black-&-white, show the tools used in the processes. All the plates have captions in Japanese describing the activities. One of the colored plates depicts men raising water from the mine to a height of 220 meters. The final six leaves of text, written in Chinese with Japanese reading marks, gives more details about nanban-buki along with an account of the Sumitomo clan and its important involvement in the copper industry. Fine copy and quite rare. ❧ Smith, Cyril Stanley & Shirakawa, Zenryu, Kodo Zuroku: Illustrated Book on the Smelting of Copper (1983).

Des modifications typographiques (dans une citation en grec, ou dans la pagination des premiers feuillets), il semble ressortir nettement que la présente version de la troisième édition est postérieure à celle de l'autre exemplaire. Bon état (manque le feuillet de faux-titre, ex-libris gravé de Lady Francis Bentinck et ex-libris ms. de son nom de jeune fille "The Hon. Frances Augusta Pierrepont", cachet de la "Selbourne Library") pour cet exemplaire en plein maroquin de cette importante édition, qui révèle l'attention permanente que Chateaubriand portait au polissage de son oeuvre... (Escoffier, 110) Lady Frances Augusta Eliza Pierrepont was the daughter of Charles Pierrepont, 1st Earl Manvers and Anne Orton Mills. She married, firstly, Vice-Admiral William Bentinck, son of Captain John Albert Bentinck and Reniera van Tuyll van Serooskerken, on 20 October 1802. She married, secondly, Henry William Stephens on 30 July 1821, and died on 10 February 1847 Français

No more danger will result from one discussion, than arises from the other. . . ."

Haller IV, 443. - Lonchamp 1801. - Erste Ausgabe. - 1631 erschien ein Anhang mit Nachträgen bis 1630. Die Chronik, beginnend mit der Beschreibung des Burgundischen Reiches und der Gründung von Bern, behandelt hauptsächlich das 16. Jahrhundert, v.a. die Schweizer Reformationsgeschichte und ist "ungeachtet ihres allgemeinen Titels vorzüglich eine Berner Chronik" (Haller). Stettler, Michael (1580 Bern- 1642), Ausbildung zum Notar in Genf oder Lausanne. 1605 Chor- und Ehegerichtsschreiber in Bern, 1606 Mitglied des Gr. Rats, 1610 Deutschseckelmeister, 1616-22 Landvogt von Oron und 1627-29 von St. Johannsen, 1629-42 Oberlehenskommissär der sog. welschen Lande. Ohne grosse Begabung verfasste S. als junger Mann Lobgedichte und u.a. ein Drama in 33 Akten ("Vom Ursprung löbl. Eidsgenossenschaft" 1605). Dann wandte er sich der Historiografie zu, sammelte Stoff, indem er Akten abschrieb, namentlich aber die noch ungedruckten früheren Chronisten Berns. 1614 übergab er dem Rat eine dreibändige, die Zeit von 1526 bis 1610 abdeckende Geschichte der Stadt, die er überarbeitete und zu einem zehnbändigen Werk erweiterte. Auf Wunsch der Burgerschaft wurde 1626 eine zweibändige Geschichte publiziert, die 1631 um einen Anhang erweitert und von der Obrigkeit zensuriert unter dem Titel "Schweitzer-Chronic" erschien. Das Werk ist von einem starken Glauben an den "allregierenden Gott" geprägt, der jedes Geschehen leitet und im Diesseits und Jenseits das Gericht vollzieht. Der Autor mass der Geschichte einen hohen Wert bei, denn aus ihr könnten die Regierenden Verhaltensmassregeln für die Gegenwart ableiten und Richtlinien für die Zukunft gewinnen. Die Aristokratie stellte für S. den goldenen Mittelweg zwischen Monarchie und Demokratie dar.(HLS, Edgar Bonjour).

        Horacio Nelson Barão do Nilo Visconte Nelson Duque de Bronte Vice Almirante [da 2e Divisão azul.]

      Portugal, no publisher, no date, [c.1801] - Unusual pair of engraved portraits, each (133 × 92 mm), now window-mounted side by side, framed and glazed. Very good. Scarce, attractive and highly interesting pair of portraits of Nelson produced in Portugal around 1801 after he had been made vice admiral of the blue. The left-hand engraving shows a romantically presented bust portrait in three quarter profile, wearing the sash of the Order of the Bath and a single Naval Medal. The background is blank. The second portrait had been elaborated to include the Star of the Order of the Crescent, created specifically for Nelson for his services to the Ottoman empire at the Battle of the Nile and received in November 1799, on the right breast of his coat; two medals hanging on the ribbon around his neck, St. Vincent and the recently acquired King's medal for the Nile (see comments on the Guzzardi portrait, Walker The Nelson Portraits p.80); the face has has been reworked into a somewhat sterner expression, the right eye obscured to suggest his blindness; and a cloudy sky and rigging added to the background. An entirely more atmospheric rendering. The engraved caption has been extended to include the words "of the Blue."

With the Accompanying Documents. {Plus] No. Documents No. III-V. Accompanying the President's Communications to Congress, the 8th of December, 1801.

      Samuel Harrison Smith,, Washington City: 1801 - Pamphlets (two), 8vo, first pamphlet unbound and uncut signature, 15, [1] pp; second unbound stitched, two fold out tables, 5, [3] pp. plus two foldout tables. Some browning, foxing and spotting, first starting to split at a few folds, minor chipping at edges; otherwise about very good. This is an early Washington City imprint, by Samuel Harrison Smith, a friend of Thomas Jefferson. One of the interesting features of these pamphlets is that they include a copy of the4 second census. The numbers show a population of over 5 million, and almost 900,000 slaves. There is also information on the expenses related to building gun ships, ports and the sale of some government assets. Thomas Jefferson (1746-1836) was the third president of the United States. This speech to Congress was delivered toward the end of his first year in office, and was basically a state of the union address. However, because Jefferson didn't want to be viewed as a king, he had a clerk make the presentation. National Archives

Dechassez writes, ""Je prends la liberté de solliciter de vous le grade de chef de bataillon, mes services, campagnes et actions donc je joins ici l'Etat, les temoignages avantageux des officieres generaux sous les quels j'ai fait la guerre, l'estime et l'attachement dont ils m'ont constament honoré, tout les titres que je soumette a votre bonté"" [roughly, I take the liberty of soliciting the rank of major, whereby my services, campaigns and actions I here enclose with the testimony of general officers under whom I waged war, who have shown my constant esteem and attachment, all the titles I hereby submit for your good will]. The principal testimony supporting this appeal is that of Marshal François Lefebvre, one of the original 18 ""Marshals of the Empire,"" a rank created by Napoleon, who went on to become the Duc of Dantzig after successfully besieging and conquering that city in 1807. While this document is not dated, it clearly dates after December 12, 1799, when Napoleon was named ""Premier Consul de la Republique,"" as he is referred to in this document, and prior to his coronation as Emperor on December 2, 1804. Beginning with his coronation as Emperor, Napoleon began to sign his documents as ""Napoleon,"" or more commonly, ""Nap,"" or ""Np,"" rather than using ""Bonaparte,"" as in this document. Text in French. A bit of minor marginal toning, faint fold lines, near-fine condition. Napoleon's ""Bonaparte"" signature bold.

Quarto, modern half brown morocco, marbled boards. $2500.Lovely illustrated 1801 Vienna Haggadah, with 11 half-page copperplate engravings. Attractively bound.Schmid was a Christian publisher of Hebrew books who benefited greatly from an 1800 ordinance prohibiting the import of Hebrew books by Jews (who were themselves excluded from the publishing business). He did employ a number of Jewish typesetters and proofreaders, mainly from Galicia, who were granted special residence permits in Vienna (Encyclopaedia Judaica, I:978). “Schmid issued a number of printings of the Haggadah utilizing the delicately engraved popular illustrations of Abraham bar Jacob [which first appeared in the Amsterdam 1695 Haggadah]… Two popular commentaries by Moses Alscheikh and Ephraim Luntschitz added to the popular illustrations made for many editions” (Karp, From the Ends of the Earth: Judaic Treasures of the Library of Congress, 103). Among the illustrations are the famous 13-panel stages of the Seder and the ten-panel depiction of the ten plagues. Title page within decorative typographical border. Upper two-thirds of title page mounted and remargined, with lower third supplied in a neat facsimile. Numerous skilled paper repairs/remarginings throughout text, generally not affecting text or illustrations. Expected wine stains and other signs of ritual use.
