        Description de l'Egypte : ANTINOE. Vue du portique du théâtre (vol. IV pl. 55)

      Imprimerie Impériale 1802 - - Imprimerie Impériale, Paris 1802-1830, 70 X 51,5 cm, une feuille. - Gravure originale in plano extraite de l''Edition Impériale' de la Description de l'Egypte ou Recueil des observations et recherches faites en Egypte pendant l'expédition française, publié par les ordres de Sa Majesté l'Empereur Napoléon le Grand. Réalisée entre 1802 et 1830, elle fut tirée à 1000 exemplaires offerts aux institutions. Papier vergé au filigrane 'Egypte ancienne et moderne' visible par transparence, protégé par une serpente. Magnifique vue romantique des ruines du portique du théâtre romain d'Antinoë, ville fondée par l'empereur Hadrien en 132 ap. JC sur la rive droite du Nil en moyenne Egypte. On y aperçoit les officiers de l'armée française examinant les vestiges en compagnie de la population locale. Le théâtre a été presque complètement déparementé, il ne dresse plus que deux colonnes complètes d'ordre corinthien et des pilastres encore coiffés de leurs chapiteaux. Au-delà, on aperçoit la palmeraie au bord du Nil et les collines de ruines qui font la particularité du site d'Antinoë. Infimes rousseurs marginales n'affectant pas du tout la planche, sinon excellent état de fraîcheur et de conservation. La monumentale première édition de la Description de l'Egypte en 13 volumes comportait 892 planches dont 72 coloriées, parmi lesquelles 9 volumes concernaient l'Antiquité. Les autres volumes traitaient de l'Histoire Naturelle et de l'Egypte moderne car Napoléon Bonaparte avait emmené avec lui une commission de savants de toutes disciplines si bien que, disait-on, dans sa description était emmagasiné 'le plus riche musée de l'Univers'. Cet ouvrage fut rédigé en partie par la baron Dominique Vivant-Denon avant que ce dernier soit nommé directeur général du Musée Napoléon au Louvre. Plus de 80 artistes et 400 graveurs furent engagés pour ce projet titanesque. Les dimensions des planches exceptionnellement grandes nécessitèrent la création d'une presse spéciale et d'un meuble spécifique pour les conserver.! [Attributes: First Edition]

He was the fifth son and eighth child of George III, who reigned in both the United Kingdom and Hanover. After his brother, William IV's death, his niece became Victoria I of England and he ascended to the throne of Hanover.In early May 1743, just 6 months after the first edition of Hoyles "A Short Treatise on Whist" was pubished, the anonymous play The Humours of Whist was published, obviously satirizing Hoyle and the contemporary mania for gaming. Less obviously, the play satirizes the battle between the pirates and the publisher. The long title of the play is The Humours of Whist. A Dramatic Satire, as Acted every Day at White's and other Coffee-Houses and Assemblies. The play was never performed?but all the behavior being satirized must have been evident every day at the coffee houses where gaming took place. This is an early and rare pamphlet.

        [Op. 29]. Quintetto Pour 2 Violons, 2 Altos et Violoncelle [Subtitle]: composé et dédié à Monsieur le Comte Maurice de Fries... Oeuv. 29. [Set of parts]

      Leipsic: Breitkopf & Härtel [PN 94]. [December 1802]. Folio. Unbound, as issued. Preserved in a modern full dark green cloth folder with black leather label gilt to spine. [1] (title), 2-13; 9; 8; 8; 8 pp. Engraved. Early signature to title. Slightly browned throughout; repairs to spine of first violin part with slight paper loss. . First Edition. Rare. Kinsky-Halm, p. 71. Hirsch IV, 267. Dorfmüller-Weinhold, p. 211. Hoboken 2, 153. "Between the Op. 18 Quartets and those of Op. 59 lie about six or seven years and the 'Eroica.' A whole world, in Beethoven's terms... The bridge between the two worlds is built of works other than quartets, and the only piece of chamber music for strings belonging to this interim stage is the splendid Quintet in C, Op. 29 (with two violas), which lies nearer to the first than to the second period. This work, which may be in some ways regarded as a crown to Op. 18, is still shamefully neglected. As a whole it has greater breadth and economy of line than even the F major Quartet, Op. 18, No. 1... Although there is a sufficiency of accomplished five-part writing and one gets the strong impression for much of the time that the quintet is... an enriched quartet, Beethoven contrives also to create from time to time an almost orchestral richness and weight, especially in the vividly resourceful 'storm finale." Arnold and Fortune, eds.: The Beethoven Reader, p. 251.

        Museum d'Histoire Naturelle: Annales volumes 1-21 (AND) Nouvelles Annales volumes 1-4 (AND) Mémoires volumes 1-20 (AND) Archives volumes 1-10 (AND) Nouvelles Archives Series I volumes 1-10; Series II volumes 1-10; Series III volumes 1-9

      Paris, Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle, 1802-1897. 4to. 2,048 copper engravings and lithographed plates of which many double-sized or larger, and/or hand-coloured or in chromolithography, and seven portraits. Contemporary uniform marbled boards with morocco labels on the spines in different colours for the different series; original printed wrappers of several issues bound in (Annales, Mémoires, Nouvelle Annales), and near contemporary uniform cloth bindings with red morocco labels (Archives and Nouvelles Archives, first series), and original printed wrappers (last two series of the Nouvelles Archives). * Very rare set, seldom seen complete, of the most important scientific natural history journal published in France during the 19th century. There are in total 84 volumes in 4to with over 2,000 engraved and lithographed plates, of which over 250 are hand-coloured or in chromolithography. This work contains the contributions of all the famous French naturalists of the 19th century, in many cases the first publication(s) of these authors, or at least in their first editions, and often their most important research and results. In the Annales, for instance, Cuvier published his important series on molluscan anatomy, while his rival Lamarck contributed with his monograph of the fossil shells of the Paris Basin. Ornithology is well-represented. For instance: De Blainville, le Dodo, autrement Dronte (Didus ineptus L.) with four lithographed plates one being a beautiful hand-coloured head of the dodo by G. de Bièrre. Another important "first" is Geoffroy St-Hilaire's "Descriptions des Mammifères nouveaux ou imparfaitement connus: famille des Singes" with eight lithographed plates of which two are coloured, one of which is the chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes L.) and appears to be the first monograph, antedating that of Owen by seven years. A herpetological; treasure is De Blainville's "Description de quelques espèces de reptiles de la Californie". Throughout all series there is also much on entomology, and more on conchology/malacology, including palaeontology, ichthyology and studies on crustaceans. Authors included are Cuvier, Valenciennes, Audouin, Lamarck, Becquerel, H. and A. Milne-Edwards, Brongniart, Jussieu, Tulasne, De Serres, Duméril, Thouin, Deleuze, Fourcroy, Vauquelin a.o. Among the entomological titles we find, e.g., the following works by Lyonet: "Anatomie de différentes especes d'insectes" (a long series, with plates by W. de Haan), Lacordaire's "Essai sur les coléoptères de la Guyane Française", an illustrated paper by Boisduval on Macrolepidoptera from Madagascar, Mauritius and Réunion, inaptly titled "Considérations générales"; Audouin and Brullé's "Description des espèces nouvelles ou peu connues de la famille des cicindelètes", with nice large hand-coloured plates, Raffray's "Coléoptères de la famille des paussides"; Paul Gervais' paper titled "remarques sur la famille des scorpions et description de plusiers espèces nouvelles de la collection du Muséum", and more. Père David, first westerner to see the deer named after him and the giant panda, published his travel diaries in the Nouvelles Archives, with many zoological observations, and this came with a string of papers by Vaillant, Sauvage, Heude, and others on the specimens of birds, fish, molluscs and other animals he collected. Over the years many papers included in this series have been sold separately for considerable prices. In all it can be stated that these publications by the natural history museum of Paris do not only contain a great deal of zoological, palaeontological, geological and (bio)chemical observations and discoveries, but also provided a platform for many new ideas and concepts about how the natural world is organized and how it is developing. Some rubbing to boards, and especially to spine ends. Ten parts of the Nouvelles Archives with renewed spine, a few text parts with brittle edges (and, however, very wide margins), a few text sections and plates spotted or age-toned, but much less so than usual; a few sections, including plates with some offsetting (more obtrusive in a few sections of the Mémoires), some minor creasing, a few captions shaved and some minor, usually marginal dampstaining. See the collation for a detailed list of irregularities, including reversals of plate orders including plate 5 of Nouvelles Archives volume 4 perhaps being issued later and here bound in volume 5. In all a very impressive, and complete set. Nissen ZBI, 4551, 4552, 4560, 4561, 4677.(Postage on this item might be more than indicated, please inquire)

        Bibliographia Poetica: A Catalogue of Engleish [sic] Poets, of the Twelfth, Thirteenth, Fourteenth, Fifteenth, and Sixteenth Centuries, With a Short Account of Their Works.

      C. Roworth, London 1802 - 12mo. Modern brown cloth rebind with burgundy leather spine label. 407pp. Very good. Modern binding of course fine and pristine; some age toning about the edges of the title page; original text block clean and quite handsome. First edition. Ritson (1752-1803) was an eccentric but highly-regarded English antiquarian whose many collections of early texts includes such volumes as "A Select Collection of English Songs" (1783) and "Ancient Songs and Ballads from the Reign of King Henry the Second to the Revolution" (1792), "Robin Hood: A Collection of All the Ancient Poems, Songs, and Ballads, Now Extant Relative to That Celebrated English Outlaw" (1795). This unique copy of "Bibliographia Poetica" belonged to the American poet, editor and essayist JAMES RUSSELL LOWELL (1819-91), with his signature and the year "1843" boldly penned in brown ink at the top of the title page. Lowell makes three interesting editorial comments in the margins. On page 157, in a discussion of George Chapman, Lowell brackets the text "9. 'Justification of a strange action of Nero in burying with a solemn funerall one of the cast hayres of his mistresse Poppaea,' 1629. 4to. 10. 'A just reproofe of Juvenall,' 1629. 4to." -- and pens in "These are one Work. Vide 'Poetical Decameron' Vol1, p60" in his miniscule but neat hand. On page 242, Lowell pencils an asterick alongside the name John Higins, and at the bottom of this page notes, "He says at the end of the story of Mempricius that he was not yet thirty in 1575." And last on page 299, alongside the text "PHILLIP JOHN wrote and publish'd 'A rare and strange historicall bouell of Cleomenes and Sophonisba, surnamed Juliet; very pleasant to reade:' printed by Hugh Jackson, 1577, 8vo," Lowell neatly pens, "This Phillip also published 'The Life & Death of Sr Phillip Sidney, late Lord Governour of Flushing: His funeralls Solemnized in Paule's Church where he lyeth interred: with the whole order of the mournfull shewe as they marched through the citie of London on Thursday the 16 of February 1587. At London printed by Robt Waldegrave re 1587' Vide Collier's Poetical Decameron Vol 11. p. 50." Intriguing to note Lowell's attention to detail and the depth of his bibliographical expertise. In his 1870 book "Among My Books," Lowell writes, "From the two centuries between 1400 and 1600 the indefatigable Ritson in his Bibliographia Poetica has made us a catalogue of some six hundred English poets, or, more properly, verse-makers. Ninety-nine in a hundred of them are mere names, most of them no more than shadows of names, some of them mere initials. Nor can it be said of them that their works have perished because they were written in an obsolete dialect; for it is the poem that keeps the language alive, and not the language that buoys up the poem. The revival of letters, as it is called, was at first the revival of ancient letters, which, while it made men pedants, could do very little toward making them poets, much less toward making them original writers."

        Iris Pallida

      Paris: Imprimerie de Didot jeune, 1802. 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 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. Stipple engraving, printed in colour and finished by hand, engraved by Langlois jeune.

        An Enquiry into the Nature and Effects of the Paper Credit of Great Britain

      London: J.Hatchard, 1802 Octavo, boards, xiipp + 320ppFirst edition of the greatest work of the 19th century on monetary theory. Stephens writes that "It gives a comprehensive account of the workings of the money market at the date of its publication, and of the attitude in which the Bank of England stood towards the rest of the commercial world. As Bank Director, the author was peculiarly qualified to explain the inner mechanisms of the financial system. He insists that over-issue would depreciate the value of notes, but does not consider that the bank issue of the Bank of England is excessive".Kress B4612. Goldsmith 18526. Stephens, p.32.

Scarce, though not as historically important as the 1800 edition, (see our ref. 8142), there have been fewer copies available. The 1802 edition of 'Lyrical Ballads' differs from the 1800 edition in the following ways: Coleridge contributed four poems only, 'The Dungeon' having been withdrawn. Wordsworth's 'A Character' was also omitted. The famous 'Preface' was considerably expanded, (64 pages in this edition compared to 46 pages in the 1800 edition), and many changes were introduced into the text of the Poems. Three poems were removed from vol. I and given new positions in vol. II. Finally Coleridge in this edition cancelled the 'Argument' to 'The Ancient Mariner'. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      . Paris, Museum d'Histoire Naturelle, 1802-1897. 4to. 2,048 copper engravings and lithographed plates of which many double-sized or larger, and/or hand-coloured or in chromolithography, and seven portraits. Contemporary uniform marbled boards with morocco labels on the spines in different colours for the different series; original printed wrappers of several issues bound in (Annales, Memoires, Nouvelle Annales), and near contemporary uniform cloth bindings with red morocco labels (Archives and Nouvelles Archives, first series), and original printed wrappers (last two series of the Nouvelles Archives). * Very rare set, seldom seen complete, of the most important scientific natural history journal published in France during the 19th century. There are in total 84 volumes in 4to with over 2,000 engraved and lithographed plates, of which over 250 are hand-coloured or in chromolithography. This work contains the contributions of all the famous French naturalists of the 19th century, in many cases the first publication(s) of these authors, or at least in their first editions, and often their most important research and results. In the Annales, for instance, Cuvier published his important series on molluscan anatomy, while his rival Lamarck contributed with his monograph of the fossil shells of the Paris Basin. Ornithology is well-represented. For instance: De Blainville, le Dodo, autrement Dronte (Didus ineptus L.) with four lithographed plates one being a beautiful hand-coloured head of the dodo by G. de Bierre. Another important "first" is Geoffroy St-Hilaire's "Descriptions des Mammiferes nouveaux ou imparfaitement connus: famille des Singes" with eight lithographed plates of which two are coloured, one of which is the chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes L.) and appears to be the first monograph, antedating that of Owen by seven years. A herpetological; treasure is De Blainville's "Description de quelques especes de reptiles de la Californie". Throughout all series there is also much on entomology, and more on conchology/malacology, including palaeontology, ichthyology and studies on crustaceans. Authors included are Cuvier, Valenciennes, Audouin, Lamarck, Becquerel, H. and A. Milne-Edwards, Brongniart, Jussieu, Tulasne, De Serres, Dumeril, Thouin, Deleuze, Fourcroy, Vauquelin a.o. Among the entomological titles we find, e.g., the following works by Lyonet: "Anatomie de differentes especes d'insectes" (a long series, with plates by W. de Haan), Lacordaire's "Essai sur les coleopteres de la Guyane Francaise", an illustrated paper by Boisduval on Macrolepidoptera from Madagascar, Mauritius and Reunion, inaptly titled "Considerations generales"; Audouin and Brulle's "Description des especes nouvelles ou peu connues de la famille des cicindeletes", with nice large hand-coloured plates, Raffray's "Coleopteres de la famille des paussides"; Paul Gervais' paper titled "remarques sur la famille des scorpions et description de plusiers especes nouvelles de la collection du Museum", and more. Pere David, first westerner to see the deer named after him and the giant panda, published his travel diaries in the Nouvelles Archives, with many zoological observations, and this came with a string of papers by Vaillant, Sauvage, Heude, and others on the specimens of birds, fish, molluscs and other animals he collected. Over the years many papers included in this series have been sold separately for considerable prices. In all it can be stated that these publications by the natural history museum of Paris do not only contain a great deal of zoological, palaeontological, geological and (bio)chemical observations and discoveries, but also provided a platform for many new ideas and concepts about how the natural world is organized and how it is developing. Some rubbing to boards, and especially to spine ends. Ten parts of the Nouvelles Archives with renewed spine, a few text parts with brittle edges (and, however, very wide margins), a few text sections and plates spotted or age-toned, but much less so than usual; a few sections, including plates with some offsetting (more obtrusive in a few sections of the Memoires), some minor creasing, a few captions shaved and some minor, usually marginal dampstaining. See the collation for a detailed list of irregularities, including reversals of plate orders including plate 5 of Nouvelles Archives volume 4 perhaps being issued later and here bound in volume 5. In all a very impressive, and complete set. Nissen ZBI, 4551, 4552, 4560, 4561, 4677.(Postage on this item might be more than indicated, please inquire).

        Iris Pallida

      Imprimerie de Didot jeune, Paris 1802 - 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 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. Stipple engraving, printed in colour and finished by hand, engraved by Langlois jeune.

      Philadelphia: Printed for The Editor & Elizabeth Dickens. 1802. First. Periodical. Folio. A set of four weekly issues from June, 1802. (Volume 2, Nos. 22-25).

Also included in the June 5th issue are obituary notices for Martha Washington, "widow of the late illustrious general," and Sara Jay, "the amiable and much respected wife of his excellency John Jay." .

        Recherches sur la nature et les causes de la richesse des nations; traduction nouvelle, avec des notes et observations par Germain Garnier. Volumes I-V. [FIVE VOLUMES, THE CORRECTED ISSUE]

      Paris, Agasse, 1802.. Five volumes. Crown octavo. Pp. cxxvii (Preface), 368; 493; 564; 556; 588. Engraved frontispiece, signed by B. L. Prevost, to the first volume. All half-titles present. Extended comprehensive index, footnotes. Hardcover, uniformly bound in handsome contemporary half polished calf and speckled boards; spines gilt ruled, each with a cherry-red, gilt morocco title-label, and an oval, gilt-and-black morocco volume-number label, set within gilt-embossed wreath. Paper over inner hinges of volume I split, not affecting binding which remains firm and tight. Nice embroidered ribbon marker to each volume. In about fine condition (some annotations in light coloured pencil in one volume). A very handsome set. ~ Adam Smith's (1723-1790) work is the first major expression of organized study of social wealth. ??The Wealth of Nations' is not a system, but as a provisional analysis it is completely convincing. The certainty of its criticism and its grasp of human nature have made it the first and greatest classic of modern economic thought.? (PMM 221). The present, much admired French translation of Smith's ?Wealth of Nations?, by the French poet and economist Comte Germain Garnier (1754-1821), became the standard, definitive French text. (Palgrave 1894-1901). Garnier's elegant Preface to this edition contains a summary of the doctrine of Smith, a comparison between the same and that of French economists, and a parallel between the wealth of France and that of England. - - The present set is the scarce corrected issue, published without the 5 errata slips (one to each volume) and conforms to Einaudi's 5340 description.
