      New York: Printed and sold by George F. Hopkins, 1802.. Two volumes. viii,317,[1]pp., with two pages numbered 167 and two pages numbered 168, as noted on the errata sheet and with page numbering 263-270 repeated; v,[3],351pp. Contemporary sheep, gilt morocco spine label on first volume (lacking on second volume). Hinges of second volume repaired, boards quite rubbed and edgeworn. Contemporary ownership signature on titlepage of both volumes. Moderate tanning and staining. Good. In cloth chemises and half morocco and cloth slipcases, spines gilt. Styled the "revised and corrected" edition on the titlepage, with additions to the first edition of 1788. "Most famous and influential American political work. Written in collaboration with Jay and Madison" - Howes. Ford attributes editorship of this edition to John Wells, though Sabin attributes it to William Coleman, noting it as "the last issued during Hamilton's life...." This edition is expanded by the addition of the federal constitution and the first eleven amendments, and a series of articles written by Hamilton under the pseudonym "Pacificus," defending Washington's "Neutrality Proclamation" of 1793 regarding the Anglo-French war. Arguably the most complete edition, and the only other English language edition issued in Hamilton's lifetime, in the preface it identifies Hamilton, Jay, and Madison as the authors but does not specify who wrote which essays; "it was at first intended to mark the numbers distinctly which were written by each; but considerations have since occurred which would perhaps render this measure improper." Clearly issued by Hamilton partisans, the preface implies that virtually all of it was Hamilton's work, and the republication of the Pacificus essays (written in opposition to Madison) confirms the Hamiltonian slant.

        U.S. Attorney Pierpont Edwards attempts to moonlight for Vermont's Green Mountain Boy Ira Allen, Ethan Allen's Brother

      "An unpublished Autograph Letter Signed ""Pierpont Edwards"", 2p, 7.75"" x 12.5"", Wallingford, [Connecticut], June 28, [1802], with integral transmittal leaf addressed in his hand to ""Major General Ira Allen Colchester Vermont"" concerning his inability to travel to Vermont to assist Allen in a legal dispute. Light creasing scattered throughout with minor pinholes at some fold intersections, a few minor marginal tears and chips, else overall very bright and clean.A hurried letter responding to Allen, who had requested Edwards' representation in a lawsuit against Capt. Joshua Tanton of Lutterlough Township and Silas Hathaway of Highate Township over disputed land titles. Allen complained to Edwards, then consumed with his duties as United States Attorney for Connecticut, that his rivals were taking measures ""to gain my Imbarris [sic] me in Every Possible way so as to Provent [sic] me from having money to Dischar[g]e Every Demand that Can be prodused [sic] & to have money to Pay Land Taxes Defray Expence [sic] of Courts &c...?. Allen also asked Edwards if he knew where he could borrow $20,000. (Ira Allen to Pierpont Edwards, 8 May 1802, John J. Duffy, ed., Ethan Allen and His Kin Correspondence, 1772-1819. (1998) Vol. 2, 728-9.)Edwards had agreed to undertake the trip and attempted the journey at the end of May, but schedules and bad roads prevented it: ""Finding here an opportunity of writing to you I embrace it, being the first which has presented since I gave up my journey to Burlington ?" Conformably to my promise[?] to make preparation to leave New Haven on Saturday the 29th of May, but that day proved to be unexpectedly Stormy; the next day, being the Sabbath of our Savior I could not be permitted to travel; on monday [sic] I began my journey, and travelled one day towards Burlington, but found the road so very heavy, as to render it impossible for me to arrive at Burlington, untill [sic] it would be too late, I therefore returned..."". Edwards offers to attempt the journey again, upon Allen?s request.Allen had only recently returned to Vermont after an eight year hiatus in Europe. He had travelled to France in 1795 seeking military assistance in seizing Quebec from the British to create an independent republic of United Columbia. While en route to North America with a stand of 20,000 muskets and 24 pieces of artillery, the British captured him at sea and impounded his cargo. He spent the next eight years in court seeking the release of his property."

        A Journey from Edinburgh Through Parts of North Britain, et. Al.

      T. N. Longman and G. Rees, London 1802 - Book. 4to - over 9¾. Two volumes, xxiv + 408 pp., viii + 396, 44 full page aquatints in all. 3/4 modern calf binding. These two volumes by Alexander Campbell are part of the great travel illustrated plate book tradition that reached its pinnacle in the early nineteenth century before the advent of steel engravings, which made illustrations more readily available but lacked the warmth, beauty and artisanship that characterized the various techniques of printed illustration preceding. This was also a time when Scotland had achieved a certain ascendency, with its eighteenth century Enlightenment having dispelled its courser stereotype from earlier times of clan strife. Both quarto volumes, each measuring almost 11 inches by 9 inches, are very tight with strong and very handsome modern bindings. The pages have age toning but are generally clean with only the lightest of occasional foxing, and same with the gorgeous plates. There is the typical offsetting of the plates onto the opposite pages. The plates capture the rural and pastoral so effectively that they come off to us like out of a dream. This is a bygone world that in our age we can only fantasize. Photo(s) available upon request. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Sonne. Med kobberstukket titelblad og frontispice af Johann Friedrich Clemens, samt 70 kobberstukne nodeplancher. Tværfolio. Samtidigt halvlæder med papirtitelfelt på forperm. * I året 1801 opnåede Det kongelige Teater betydelig succes med Galeottis ballet Lagertha, i programmet betegnet som 'Et pantomimisk Sörgespil blandet med Sang' hvortil Claus Schall havde skrevet musikken. Værket bygger på en tidligere udgivet dramatisk tekst af digteren Chr. H. Pram, der frit efter Saxo skildrer en episode af Regnar Lodbrog saga. Prams idé var at opnå et helhedskunstværk ved sammensmeltning af talt dialog, sang, pantomime og dans. I balletten blev den talte dialog dog udeladt. Handlingen er angivet mellem nodelinierne.

Er behandelte zunächst "einige an schweren convulsivischen Nervenzufällen leidenden junge Frauenzimmern" so wirkungsvoll, dass der Arzt und Astronom Heinrich Wilhelm Olbers mit ihm weitere Krankenprotokolle führte und auch andere führende Ärzte in Bremen, Gottfried Reinhold Treviranus und Johann Heineken von seinen Heilkräften überzeugen konnte. 1802 publizierte Wienholt zu Lebzeiten in zwei Bänden sein Hauptwerk "Die Heilkraft des thierischen Magnetismus nach eigenen Beobachtungen" anhand von 50 Krankengeschichten. Die drei Abteilungen des dritten Bandes, hrsg. von J. Ch. F. Scherf, erschienen aus dem Nachlass und enthalten die Krankengeschichte somnambuler Patienten. - Gering berieben, sehr gutes Exemplar!

        Die Rosen nach der Natur gezeichnet und colorirt mit kurzen botanischen Bestimmungen begleitet. Les Roses dessinées et enluminées d'après nature avec une courte description botanique.

      - Leipzig, Industrie-Comptoir, (1802-1817). Parts 1-10 (of 12, bound in 1 volume). Large 4to (312 x 255mm). With 50 (of 60) beautifully handcoloured engraved plates. Recent half calf, gilt ornamented spine (preserving old label). The rarest of the great iconographies on roses. Of the two famous botanical collections formed last century, the Plesh and the de Belder collection, the Plesh collection did not have a copy of the present work and the de Belder collection only had parts 1-6. Stock, in his famous bibliography on roses, published in 1984, could not find a library with more than 10 parts. The reason is that Roessig had died after part 10 and that parts 11 and 12 were continued by C.F. Waitz, most probably in a very small edition.The excellent plates, some printed in red and green, were engraved by Louise von Wangenheim. Each part has five plates and 12 pages of text, only part 7 has 16 pages and part 9 20 pages. This beautifully produced work on roses was only preceded by Mary Lawrance's 'A Collection of Roses' London 1799. Roessig condemns the work of his predecessor for the 'inaccuracy of her botanical draughtsmanship' (Henrey II, p. 580). In turn, Redouté criticized Roessig for lack of botanical accuracy.

Copies with plates are very scarce and Horn & Schenkling only quote the 2 text volumes and Nissen does not mention this German translation of Olivier's 'Entomologie ou histoire naturelle des Insectes...'. The only reference we could find of the number of plates of the German edition is J.W. Hilpert. Zum Andenken an Dr. Jacob Sturm ... und eine Aufzählung seiner literarischen und artistischen Arbeiten. Nuernberg 1849. p. 17. It mentions 96 plates; these were not engraved by Sturm, although the work was being sold by him. The German translation comprises only the first 2 volumes of Olivier's comprehensive work on Coleoptera published in 6 volumes from 1789-1808. Guillaume Antoine Olivier (1756-1814) was one of the greatest of the early French naturalists and an entomologist of high standing. He was a close friend of J.C. Fabricius and a patron of P.A. Latreille. His large collection of beetles (now for the larger part in the Museum at Paris), gathered on journeys through European & Asiatic Turkey, Asia Minor, Persia, Egypt, and various Mediterranean Islands, is described in his famous work.//Provenance: Signature of Kikumaro Okano on inside frontcover and his Japanese monogram on title-pages.

        Iris Pseudacorus / Iris faux-acore

      Imprimerie de Didot jeune, Paris 1802 - Stipple engraving, printed in colour and finished by hand, engraved by Langlois. Very good condition, with the exception of being trimmed at the top edge into image. Pierre-Joseph Redouté was one of the world's great flower painters. Born into a family that had been painters for at least two generations, Redouté went to Paris in 1782 with his brother where they worked as scene painters for the Théâtre italien. Redouté painted flowers in his spare time. The search for subjects led him to the Jardin du Roi and eventually Gerard van Spaendonck who made him an assistant. While at the Jardin du Roi, Redouté came to know Charles-Louis L'Heritier, an amateur botanist and writer of independent means. He gave Redouté a full time job as an illustrator, instructing him in plant anatomy. Redouté's "functional" understanding of plants contributed greatly to the clarity of his depictions. But it was Redouté's work in stipple engraving and colour printing that was to be of the greatest importance. Stippling and the application of two or three colour inks to one plate were engraving innovations that Redouté brought to French printmaking, and these were brought to perfection in Les Liliacées from which this work comes. Les Liliacées is one of two Redouté masterworks, the other being Les Roses. These works demonstrate the appropriateness of the accolade "Raphael of Flowers", for one is constantly impressed by the exquisite compositional sense and clarity of vision. More than with any other painter, one sees in Redouté's flowers living, breathing beings at their most beautiful moment. Cf. Nissen BBI 1597; cf. Great Flower Books (1990), p 128; cf. Dunthorne p 231; cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 8747; cf. MacPhaeil, Redouteana , 10.

        Portrait, Kniestück, stehend an einem Tisch voller Bücher, Hände aufgestützt auf einen Stuhl, gemalt von F.Tischbein, gestochen von Friedrich Müller Stuttgart, 366 x 270 mm.

      . Nürnberg, bei Johann Frauenholz & Co., 1802, auf 510 x 372 mm.. Selten, unbeschnitten, frischer Abzug von der "1te Original Platte". - Christoph Wilhelm Hufeland, in Berlin, "einer der berühmtesten und verehrtesten Aerzte seiner Zeit, war am 12. August 1762 zu Langensalza in Thüringen geboren ; sein Vater und sein Grossvater waren Leibärzte am Weimar'schen Hofe, auch ein Oheim übte die ärztliche Kunst aus. HUFELAND lebte von seinem dritten Jahre an in Weimar, studirte von 1780 an in Jena und Göttingen und wurde hier 1783 Doctor mit der "Diss. inaug. sistens usum vis electricae in asphyxia experimentis illusratum". Nach Weimar zurückgekehrt, musste er sofort die weit ausgedehnte Praxis des fast erblindeten Vaters übernehmen und lag derselben, die sehr mühevoll war, mit vielem Glücke zehn Jahre lang (bis 1793) ob. Mit den Weimar damals zierenden grossen Geistern, wie Wieland, Herder, Goethe, Schiller hatte er nicht nur Umgang, sondern hatte Gelegenheit, sie als ihr Arzt noch genauer kennen -zu lernen. Sein erster literarischer Versuch war ein Aufsatz: "Mesmer und sein Magnetismus" (Deutscher Mcrcur, 1785), in welchem er das Ungründliche und Unphysische der Sache aufzudecken und Alles auf Sinnestäuschung und selbst Sinnlichkeit zurückzuführen sich bemühte. Sein erstes, 1787 erschienenes Buch war eine Abhandlung "Ueber die Ausrottung der Pocken", in welcher er nach seinen in einer äusserst bösartigen Pockenepidemie zu Weimar gemachten Erfahrungen, die Absonderung, damals das einzig denkbare Schutzmittel, vorschlug; auch war seiner Anregung die Errichtung des ersten Leichenhauses in Weimar zu danken. Gleich in seinen ersten literarischen Arbeiten zeigte sich das Streben HUFELAND's, seine Erfahrungen nicht bloss den Fachkreisen, sondern dem grossen Publicum nutzbar zu machen und gehört HUFELAND zu den hervorragendsten Aerzten Deutschlands, deren Arbeiten auch unter dem Laien-Publicum die weiteste Verbreitung gefunden haben. 1793 wurde er vom Herzog von Weimar nach Jena als Prof. ord. honor. berufen, wo seine Vorlesungen den verdienten Beifall fanden, besonders die Makrobiotik, die er in dem grossen Auditorium vor bis zu 500 Zuhörern öffentlich vortrug. Nachdem er schon im Jahre 1794 durch eine Schrift: "Erinnerungen an alle Mütter, denen die Gesundheit ihrer Kinder am Herzen liegt" , die später, 1799, eine Erweiterung erfuhr : "Guter Rath an Mütter über die wichtigsten Punkte der physischen Erziehung der Kinder in den ersten Jahren", auf die physische Erziehung seine gemeinnützigen Belehrungen ausgedehnt hatte, erschienen im Jahre 1795 seine "Ideen über Pathogenie", 1796 die "Kunst, das menschliche Leben zu verlängern", von der 3. Auflage (1805) an unter dem Titel: "Makrobiotik", eine Schrift, die zahlreiche Auflagen erlebt (8. Aufl. 1860) und in alle europäischen Sprachen übersetzt, eine Verbreitung in der ganzen Welt gefunden hat. Auch der Journalistik sich zuwendend, gab er von 1791 an (bis 1800) die "Neuesten Annalen der französischen Arzneikunde und Wundarzneikunde" heraus, setzte dieselben im Verein mit B. N. G. SCHREGER und J. CHE. F. HARLESS als "Journal der ausländischen medicinischen Literatur" bis 1803 fort, nachdem er 1795 bereits das "Journal der praktischen Arzneikunde und Wundarzneikunst" begonnen hatte, das bis zu seinem Tode, 1836, in 82 Bänden (1809-14 mit K. HIMLY, 1815-18 mit J. CHE. F. HARLESS , seit 1821 mit E. OSANN zusammen herausgegeben) erschien, zu den angesehensten, reichhaltigsten, lehrreichsten medicinischen Zeitschriften in deutscher Sprache gehörte und auch nach seinem Tode noch bis 1844 fortgesetzt wurde. Mit dem Journal verband er seit 1799 eine kritische Zeitschrift: "Bibliothek der praktischen Heilkunde", an die sich seit 1803 eine von FB. L. AUGUSTIN herausgegebene alljährliche, wissenschaftliche Uebersicht der gesammten medicinischen Literatur und der Leistungen in allen Fächern der Heilkunde schloss. - Durch seine Bekämpfung des BROWN'schen Systems (1799), von dem selbst bedeutende Männer, wie JOHANN PETER FRANK, sein Sohn JOSEPH FRANK, EENST HORN u.A., sich hatten einnehmen lassen, wurde er in eine (hauptsächlich von WEIKARD und ROESCHLAUB veranlasste) literarische Fehde verwickelt, die, 10 Jahre lang dauernd, von Seiten der Gegner zum Theil auf das Pöbelhafteste geführt, HUFELAND, dem friedliebendsten Menschen, nicht wenig Kummer und Verdruss verursachte. Kaum hatte EDWARD JENNER (1796) seine segensreiche Entdeckung der Schutz- (Kuh-) Pockenimpfung gemacht, so nahm HUFELAND, als einer der Ersten, den grössten Antheil daran, erklärte die Vaccination als eine der allerwichtigsten Entdeckungen auf dem Gebiete der praktischen Heilkunde, suchte ihr Eingang in Deutschland zu verschaffen, sprach aber zugleich die vollkommen gerechtfertigte Besorgniss aus, dass das Vacciniren nur auf eine Zeit lang den gewünschten Vortheil bringe. - Nachdem er früher mehrere glänzende Berufungen abgelehnt hatte, nahm er einen Ruf nach Berlin, an die Stelle des zu Ende des Jahres 1800 verstorbenen Dr. C. G. SELLE, als königl. Leibarzt, Director des Collegium medico-chirurgicum, erster Arzt der Charite zu treten, mit dem Prädicate eines Geheimen Rathes an und begann mit Eifer im Frühjahr 1801 seine medicinischen Vorlesungen und die klinischen Uebungen im Charitekrankenhause. Allein auch hier wurde er vom Brownianismus verfolgt; denn sein ihm coordinirter College FRITZE war ein wüthender Brownianer, und wurde Demselben später, in der Person des Dr. ERNST HORN, eines der heftigsten jungen Brownianer, ein Gehilfe und Nachfolger gegeben. HUFELAND gab von 1802-1806 jährliche klinische Berichte über den Zustand des Charitekrankenhauses heraus; auch vollendete er in dieser Zeit sein "System der praktischen Heilkunde" (2 Bde., 1800-1805). Er empfahl ferner dringend den allgemeinen Gebrauch lauwarmer Bäder (1801), warnte vor dem verderblichen Missbrauche des Branntweins (1802), gab (1802) Nachricht von dem in Berlin errichteten Impf-Institute, zu dessen Begründung und Förderung durch zweckmässige Verordnungen und Aufmunterungen er wesentlich mitgewirkt hatte, wie er auch (1801) eine "Aufforderung an alle Aerzte Deutschlands in Betreff der Kuhpocken" gerichtet hatte. Er machte weiterhin " Vorschläge zur Einführung bestimmter Medicinalmaasse in allen Haushaltungen (1801), richtete eine "Aufforderung an die Brunnenärzte Deutschlands, besonders Schlesiens" (1802), von Zeit zu Zeit die wichtigsten Erfahrungen über die Wirkung ihrer Brunnen öffentlich mitzutheilen u. s. w. Auch der GALL'schen Schädellehre widmete er eine eingehende Darstellung und Beurtheilung (1805), erklärte sich in demselben Jahre gegen REIL'S Schrift über die Nothwendigkeit der Ausbildung ärztlicher Routiniers und sprach sich in einer Abhandlung (1806) über die Eigenschaften und Pflichten eines guten Arztes, wie er sie auffasste, aus. Nach der Schlacht bei Jena begleitete er die vor den Franzosen flüchtende königliche Familie, bei der er sich des ausgezeichnetsten Vertrauens erfreute, nach der Provinz Preussen und blieb bei derselben in Königsberg, Memel und Tilsit volle drei Jahre, bis zu ihrer Rückkehr nach Berlin, zu Weihnachten 1809. Eine verheerende Typhusepidemie , welche in Folge der Kriegsdrangsale die Provinz überzog und selbst einige Mitglieder der königlichen Familie nicht verschonte, konnte von ihm eingehend studirt und beschrieben werden (1807). Einen Hauptgegenstand der Beschäftigung für ihn während seines Aufenthaltes in Königsberg bildete die mit der neuen Organisation des Staates vorzunehmende Veränderung im Medicinalwesen und die Errichtung der neuen Universität zu Berlin, bei welchen Vorbereitungen er kräftig mitwirkte. Zur Zeit der Rückkehr nach Berlin wollte HUFELAND, der sich, in Folge trauriger Familienverhältnisse und seiner zunehmenden Augenschwäche, in der trübsten Stimmung befand, seinen Abschied nehmen, allein der König genehmigte diesen nicht, sondern stellte ihn so, dass er als Staatsrath beim Medicinal Departement und Leibarzt sich nur der klinischen und consultativen Praxis zu widmen hatt...

        Tinted miniature profile engraving of Col. William Duane, 2 5/8 x 2 1/2 inches [plate mark] on a larger sheet (6 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches).

      - Miles Saint-Memin and the Neoclassical Profile Portrait in America 277: "Although the engraving was made in 1802, the version with the inscription 'Col. William Duane' must date after 1808, when Duane became a lieutenant colonel in the United States Army; he also held the rank of colonel from 1813 to 1815. Duane helped Benjamin Franklin Bache publish the Philadelphia Aurora, the principal voice of the Jeffersonian Republicans. His paper was responsible for stemming the tide of war against france in the late 1790s and contributed greatly to Thomas Jefferson's election in 1800."

        Plate 174 - Globba Erectal

      Paris 1802 - Pierre-Joseph Redouté A selection from Les Liliacées Stipple engravings with original hand color Paris: 1802-1816 21” x 14” Very light discoloration around edges. Some very light foxing. The unequalled botanical artist Pierre-Joseph Redouté occupies a central position in the development of European flower painting. Redouté had, as pupils or patrons, five queens and empresses of France, from Marie-Antoinette to Empress Josephine and her successor, Marie-Louise. Despite many changes of regime in a turbulent epoch, he worked without interruption, a testament to his greatness as an artist. Les Liliacées was Redouté's largest and most ambitious work and is generally considered his masterpiece, arguably rivaled only by Les Roses. Produced under the patronage of the Empress Josephine, for whom Redouté worked as botanical artist at her estate at Malmaison, these pristine examples represent landmark works in the field of flower illustration. The title Les Liliacées is misleading, as the work was of a much broader scope, including representatives of the lily, amaryllis, iris, orchid, and other families. The plates were executed by means of stipple engraving, a method that the artist himself perfected when he was unsatisfied with the effects garnered by traditional copper-plate engraving. As Redouté shrewdly observed, the delicacy and subtle elegance of his compositions could only be captured using a printing method equally fine. The luminosity of stipple engraving is particularly suited to the reproduction of botanical detail. The medium involved engraving a copper plate with a dense grid of dots that could be modulated to convey delicate gradations of color. Because the ink rested on the paper in miniscule dots, it did not obscure the "light" of the paper beneath the color. After this complicated printing process was complete, the prints were finished by hand in watercolor, so as to conform to the exquisite models Redouté provided. Les Liliacées records the plants of the lily family, and related flowers, that Josephine collected for her gardens at Malmaison. Redouté's small drawings, placed at the bottom of the main illustrations, record the anatomical features of each species so that each flower could be identified with precision and cultivated to perfection. In each illustration, as in his series Les Roses, the flowers are classical "portraits" which lack backgrounds or settings. The regal simplicity of the compositions allows the viewer to focus without distraction on the beauty and delicate complexity of the plants themselves. Redoutés's work represents a uniquely harmonious blend of scientific precision and supremely delicate rendering.

Contemporary red morocco, gilt spines, covers with gilt borders (skilful repair to hinges). First edition of one of the finest works on fishes. " ... the paint is laid on so thickly that it is frequently impossible to see the engraved lines underneath. The already rich colouring is heightened by the addition of burnished highlights, albumen overglazes and metallic paints to give an overall effect reminiscent of the work of a miniaturist. Surprisingly, these techniques were often combined to produce a very pleasing and delicate effect: the multiple ruses of the colourist triumph over the draughtsman's numerous failures. Donovan overreached himself and died penniless ..." (Dance, 'Art of natural History' p. 87). /Edward Donovan (1768-1837) was a Anglo-Irish naturalist and the author of a number of important natural history works which stand out for their perfection of execution. Best known are probably his publications of the insects of China and India. He was a Fellow of the Linnaean Society and the Wernerian Natural History Society. //Nissen ZBI, 1141; Dean I, 330.

        Lorimon, ou l'homme tel qu'il est. Denneville, ou l'homme tel qu'il devrait être.

      Chez Testu , chez Patris et Gilbert 1802 - - Chez Testu , chez Patris et Gilbert, A Paris 1802, 6 tomes en 6 Vol. in 8 (13x20,5cm), relié. - Nouvelle édition. Bien que les éditeurs soient différents pour les deux oeuvres, on trouve une note à la fin de Lorimont annonçant la publication prochaine de Denneville. Les 2 éditions étant semblables en tous points, l'entreprise éditoriale a simplement été reprise par un suiveur, le premier éditeur ayant peut-être fait faillite. Lorimont est illustré d'un frontispice et de 6 figures gravées par Ruotte. Denneville est lui-même illustré d'un frontispice et de 6 figures non signées. On remarquera que l'auteur des gravures n'est pas le même pour les deux oeuvres, alors que le style des gravures de Lorimont est plutôt fin XVIIIe, celui de Denneville est typique de l'Empire (les costumes, les postures et les décors sont intéressants). La publication de Lorimon est forcément antérieur à 1802. Lorimon est suivi d'une nouvelle : Miss Henriette, ou l'anecdote du jour. Pleine Basane glacée et marbrée Empire bicolore. Dos lisse en maroquin à longs grains rouge orné de roulettes filets et fers avec pièces de titres et de tomaisons en maroquin chocolat. Plats marbrés bruns avec 2 roulettes d'encadrement originales. Très belle reliure Empire, à la fois élégante et riche. Mors frottés, quelques frottis. Belle série décorative.On lit, dans le discours préliminaire de Denneville : 'Lorimon nous montre la créature humaine dans toutes ses défectuosites [.], et ici, elle nous est exposée sous des traits qui la font estimer, aimer. Les deux romans offrant deux biographies sont des romans moraux, ils sont suivis de notes qui sont autant d'interrogations philosophiques et morales et que l'auteur considérait comme tout aussi importantes que la narration. Baculard d'Arnaud (1718-1805) fut un écrivain français de la fin du XVIIIe qui eut un succès certain. Ses débuts furent remarqués par Voltaire, qui le soutint même de ses deniers, il pratiqua ce qu'il nomme lui-même le 'genre sombre'. A présent que les critiques voient plus large que par le passé, son oeuvre ne cesse de prendre de l'importance. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
