        Plate 245 - Wistenia Maura

      Paris 1802 - Pierre-Joseph Redouté A selection from Les Liliacées Stipple engravings with original hand color Paris: 1802-1816 21” x 14” Some discoloration around the edges. 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.

        "A Song Supposed to have been written by the Sage of Monticello" [and five other satiric poems in]: The Port Folio, Enlarged (Volume 2: July, October-December, 1802)

      Philadelphia: Printed for The Editor & Elizabeth Dickens. 1802. First. Periodical. Folio. A collection of 17 weekly issues of The Port Folio, containing a series of six satirical poems directed against Thomas Jefferson, specifically concerning his relations with Sally Hemings. Each weekly issue consists of eight pages, untrimmed as originally published, and professionally sewn into four sets of consecutive issues. [Set one]: July 3 -- July 31, Nos. 26-30; [set two]: October 2 -- October 30, Nos. 39-43; [set three]: November 6 -- November 27, Nos. 44-47; [set four]: December 4 -- December 18, Nos. 48-50. Overall browning and scattered foxing, the last two issues from December (nos. 49 and 50) are clipped at the bottom right corner (with minimal loss of text), good.Founded by Joseph Dennie and Asbury Dickens in Philadelphia in January 1801, and edited by Dennie, The Port Folio quickly became the most important magazine devoted to literature and politics in the United States. During the period of its greatest influence, from 1802 to 1805, Dennie had organized a distinguished circle of mostly pro-Federalist contributors known for their "liveliness, urbanity, and wit." The Republicans and Jefferson in particular were frequently attacked in its pages. Thus when James T. Callender first published the allegation that Jefferson had fathered several children by his slave Sally Hemings (in the September 1st issue of the Richmond Recorder), Dennie was quick to exploit and expand upon the charge in this famous series of satirical poems, including one now known to have been written by John Quincy Adams. A detailed list of the six poems is available. .

        "The Wolf King; or Little Red Riding Hood: An Old Woman's Tale," [ballad in] The Port Folio; Enlarged (June 5th - 26th, 1802)

      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). Each weekly issue consists of eight pages, untrimmed as originally published, and professionally sewn into one set of four consecutive issues. Browning and scattered foxing, with two partial columns (seven and two inches) clipped from the last leaf of the first issue (pp. 175-176), else good. Contains the first American appearance of a sensational burlesque version of "Little Red Riding Hood" (pages 173-174). First published anonymously in Tales of Terror (London, 1801), a collection of ballads satirizing the gothic writings of Matthew Gregory "Monk" Lewis, this account of the nursery tale is notably grimmer than the 1812 Brothers Grimm version. The Port Folio was an important Federalist literary magazine founded in Philadelphia in 1801 and edited by Joseph Dennie under the pen name "Oliver Oldschool, Esq." 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." .

        DESCRIPTION D'UNE OREILLE DE CHARRUE, OFFRANT LE MOINS DE RESISTANCE POSSIBLE, ET DONT L'EXECUTION EST AUSSI FACILE QUE CERTAINE. [Contained in:] ANNALES DU MUSEUM NATIONAL D'HISTOIRE NATURELLE. Quatrieme cahier.

      Paris. 1802. - pp.322-331 plus plate. Original blue printed paper wrappers. A few chips to spine. Minor soiling. Light dampstaining to inner upper corner of each plate. Very good. Untrimmed. In a half morocco and cloth clamshell case. Thomas Jefferson's article on the design of his moldboard plow, one of his most important and enduring contributions to agricultural technology. First published in 1799 in the TRANSACTIONS of the American Philosophical Society, the article was reprinted in this French publication in 1802. The accompanying plate shows the illustration of figures for constructing the plow. Jefferson, who had an abiding interest in the technological improvement of farming and agriculture, determined to build a plow that would glide through the earth with as little resistance as possible. He built his first moldboard plow in 1794, and after several years of use, was convinced of its ease of use and construction, resulting in this article. Its publication here, during his presidency, illustrates Jefferson's ongoing ties to France stemming from his service as U.S. ambassador.

        The Holy Bible, containing the Old Testament and the New: Translated out of the original tongues: and with the former translations Diligently compared and revised, By His Majesty’s special Command.

      John Reeves, London: 1802 - 2 WITH A DOUBLE FORE-EDGE PAINTING of Philadelphia in 1790 and New York in 1820. The scene of Philadelphia shows churches, buildings, a harbor and shipping scene; on the reverse edge showing "New York" has various harbor buildings. Not signed; likely painted just prior to Leamington’s owning this volume, thus ca. 1953. The artist is not known. Often an American bookstore would import a volume acquired from an artist or a British bookstore. Provenance: W. H. Battie-Wrightson, Cusworth, Yorkshire. William Wrightson (1752-1827), of Cusworth Hall, Doncaster, Yorkshire, was a former member of Parliament (1784-1790); his son of the same name, lived (1789-1879); it is unclear which person’s bookplate the name refers. Brownlow North (1741-1820), (former owner, family member) was appointed Bishop of Winchester in 1781. [DNB]. More recently, a pencil note within the book indicates it was purchased from Leamington Book Shop, July 1953. A bookseller’s clipped catalogue description appears to be that of Leamington’s [Price: £18 10s. ca. 1953]. A later pencil note 12/98 indicates this book was priced in December 1998 at $1,600. 4to. [ii], xxi pp. [228] ff. [a2, b-d4, e2, A-Z4, 2A-Z4, 3A-G4]. Original dark greenish-blue straight-grain morocco, gilt floral ruled borders, raised bands with three angels in three compartments, a.e.g. The binding is not sign but it is similar to other English bindings of the period, possibly Staggemeier & Welcher. The spine foot says "Genesis to Numbers" and "Reeves’s – Edition" in gilt. Early armorial bookplate of W. H. Battie-Wrightson, Cusworth, Yorkshire. Extensively annotated in ink holograph (3 ½ pages on blank endleaves), being the record of Thomas de Grey’s family births, marriages and deaths; he is the second son of Lord Walsingham, "a clergyman married Elizabeth Fourth Daughter of the Hon.ble. Brownlow North, Bishop of Winchester on the 12th of August 1802 by Special Licence at the Private Chapel at Winchester House Chelsea." Very good. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Madrid: En la imprenta de la viuda de Don Joaquin Ibarra, 1802. - Torio (1759-1820) was a member of the Royal Society for Economics in Madrid, and keeper of archives to the Marques de Astorga. He "was a man of extensive culture who had studied several languages, an uncommon accomplishment for a master of calligraphy at that time. Torio, in addition to being an excellent writing master, is above all praised as an able and impartial critic and historian of the art, credited with reforming the bad taste which he considered prevalent among the Spanish scribes of his time. The bibliographer, Cotarelo y Mori, gives extensive space to Torio in his important work on the Spanish calligraphersÉTorio's principal work was the Arte de escribir, which was celebrated by his contemporaries and makes a fundamental contribution to the development of Spanish calligraphy" (Morison, Calligraphy 1535-1885, Milano: 1962, p. 165). Small quarto. [xxxii], 445, [1, note] pp. With fifty-eight engraved plates designed by the author, engraved by Asensio, Castro, Gangioti. Engraved title-page.

This is a primary source for Nelson's victory in the Battle of the Nile, and an important tour of the Mediterranean. Willyams served as chaplain of the Swiftsure, a ship in Nelson's squadron, and he was present at the Battle of the Nile. The DNB calls this book "the first, the most particular, and the most authentic account of the battle." Willyams was a talented topographer and artist, and this is a handsomely produced book, showing the skill of the printer, Bensley. The plates are after drawings done by Willyams and include a plan of the battle, as well as views in Sicily, Syracuse, Egypt, Alexandria, Syria, Venice, Gibraltar, and other locations around the Mediterranean. The text includes well-written descriptions of all these places and more. ABBEY 196. BLACKMER 1813. HILMY II:335. PRIDEAUX, pp.223 & 357. COX II:448. JCB MARITIME HAND-LIST 1235. NMM 5:1657.

        The Journal of Frederick Horneman's Travels, from Cairo to Mourzouk,

      London: Printed by W. Bulmer and Co. for G. and W. Nicol,, 1802. the Capital of the Kingdom of Fezzan, in Africa, in the Years 1797-8. Quarto (269 x 214 mm). Early 20th-century red-brown half calf, raised bands to spine, titles and decorations to spine gilt, buff boards block-printed with stylised floral designs in green, white, and yellow, same design to endpapers. 2 partially coloured engraved folding maps by James Rennell. Bookplate of the Aggrey House to recto of front free endpaper; black ink stamps of the same to verso of front free endpaper and recto of rear free endpaper; accession number in white to tail of spine and in blue ink to title page. Spine sunned, corners and edges of boards slightly bumped and worn, split to top of front free endpaper repaired with archival tape to both recto and verso, prelims, endmatter, and map-adjacent leaves lightly foxed, occasional minor spotting throughout, short closed tear to stub of first folding map. First English edition; originally published in German in 1801. The accounts of Horneman (1772-1800), "the first European in modern times to traverse the north-eastern Sahara" (Britannica). He originally set out from Cairo to explore the Niger and locate its source on behalf of the African Association in London. This copy was gifted to the Aggrey House by Major Hanns Vischer (1876-1945), the Swiss-born British Africanist and colonial educationist. Aggrey House was a London hostel for African students established by the League of Coloured Peoples (LCP) in collaboration with the Colonial Office in 1934; Vischer presented this copy to the hostel's library that same year. However, the support of the Colonial Office made Aggrey House "part of a wider debate about the place of the politics of empire in Britain", in particular as it was seen as a rival of the West African Students' Union (WASU) hostel (Rosenhaft, Africa in Europe, p.86). While the Colonial Office claimed it sought to create "an African Club in London", "a real home" for Africans studying in Britain (Whittall, in Africa in Europe, p.84), WASU saw the Colonial Office's involvement to be an attempt to influence and control colonial students (WASU, The Truth About Aggrey House, n.p.).

        Der Kleine Lateiner oder: gemeinnützige Kenntnisse aus der Natur und Kunst in der Gestalt eines neuen lateinischen Lesebuchs für Kinder zur Bildung des Verstandes und Herzens durch das Gedächtnis. Zweyte verbesserte Auflage. - Gest. Nebentitel: Die Gemalte Welt oder der gemeinnützige Lateiner. Leipzig, C. Weigel u. Nürnberg, A. G Schneider, 1790. Mit 50 (inkl. gest. Titel) Kupfern auf 49 Tafeln. XII, 151 S. Ockerfarbener Pappbd. d. Zt., Deckel von schmaler vergold. (oxydiert) Bordüre eingefasst; vord. Gelenk leicht beschabt, Ecken etw. bestoßen.

      . . Pilz S. 340f. (unter Johann Georg Lederer); Brüggemann/Evers 504 (4. Aufl. v. 1802); Monschein 81 (ausführlich). - Sehr seltenes, reizend illustriertes Werk. "In 76 Kapiteln werden Himmel und Erde, die Elemente, Fauna und Flora, Schiffahrt, Instrumente, das Haus und seine Teile, Musik usf. in lateinischer Sprache erklärt. Jedes Kapitel enthält am Ende ein deutsch-lateinisches Glossarium, in dem die noch unbekannten Vokabeln angeführt werden" (Monschein). Zur Entstehung schreibt der Autor in der "Vorrede": "Das viele Nachfragen nach einem lateinischen Lesebuch mit Kupfern für kleine Anfänger, das ihren iugendlichen Bedürfnissen entspricht und doch keinen großen Aufwand verursachet, hat mich auf den Gedanken gebracht, gegenwärtiges Werkchen herauszugeben. ... Eigentlich besteht es aus gemeinnüzigen, leichten Stücken, die aus des berühmten Comenii Orbe Picto, den der gelehrte Herr Rector Lederer in Sachsen, vor zwey Jahren ganz umgearbeitet und verbessert, aber ohne Kupfer, herausgab". Monschein weist darauf hin, dass es sich bei "Rektor Lederer aus Sachsen" um Johann Christian Lederer aus Jessen (bei Wittenberg) handeln muss und nicht, wie Pilz angibt, um den Namensvetter Johann Georg aus Nürnberg. Da der erste Band von Johann Peter Voits 1789 erschienenen "Unterhaltungen aus der Naturgeschichte" mehr oder weniger eine Übersetzung des "Kleinen Lateiners" darstellt und auch alle Kupfer übernommen wurden, vermutet sie weiter zumindest eine Mitautorschaft Voits an vorliegendem Werk. Etwa die Hälfte der hübschen, meist nach Gabler gestochenen Kupfer zeigen Tiere und Pflanzen, die übrigen teils sehr dekorative Berufs- und Werkstattdarstellungen (Buchbinder, Papiermacher, Glashütte, Uhrmacher, Küche, Garten- u. Ackerbau usw.). Sowohl Text- als auch Tafelumfang variieren bei allen in den Bibliographien genannten Exemplaren. Monschein nennt X, 150 S. (bei uns XII, 151 S.) und 50 num. Kupfer (samt Nebentitel) u. erwähnt auch eine mit "52" nummerierte Tafel. In unserem Exemplar sind die Tafeln wie folgt nummeriert u. angeordnet: Nebentitel, Taf. 1-4, 6-23, 51-52 u. 24-47. Tafel 19 ist eine gefaltete Doppeltafel. Die Tafeln 51 u. 52 sind zu den richtigen Kapiteln gebunden. Bis auf das Exemplar bei Monschein haben alle, soweit Angaben gemacht werden, in den o.a. Bibliographien genannten Exemplare (gleich welcher Auflage) weniger Tafeln. - Schönes, frisches Exemplar. ** Bestellungen bis 14 Uhr versenden wir am selben Tag. - Schweizer Postkonto vorhanden. **

        Shakespeare Macbeth Act IV Scene I a dark cave. In the middle a Cauldron boiling. Three Witches, Macbeth, Hecate, &c

      John & Josiah Boydell, London 1802 - A superb impression of one of the greatest images in Boydell's Shakespeare Gallery, from the original painting by Sir Joshua Reynolds "This is Shakespeare on a grand scale, the Shakespeare of titanic emotion, of compelling gesture and vivid gaze.the greatest of the engravings.are by any standard powerful works with an inescapable emotional force behind them. They speak directly to us." (A. E. Santaniello, The Boydell Shakespeare Prints, New York, 1979) In 1786, the printseller John Boydell (1719-1804) "embarked upon the most important enterprise of his life, viz. the publication, by subscription, of a series of prints illustrative of [the works of] Shakespeare, after pictures painted expressly for the work by English artists. For this purpose he gave commissions to all the most celebrated painters of this country for pictures, and built a gallery in Pall Mall for their exhibition. The execution of this project extended over several years. In 1789 the Shakespeare Gallery contained thirty-four pictures, in 1791 sixty-five, in 1802 one hundred and sixty-two, of which eighty-four were of large size. The total number of works executed was 170, three of which were pieces of sculpture, and the artists employed were thirty-three painters and two sculptors, Thomas Banks and the Hon. Mrs. Damer. It appears from the preface to the catalogue of 1789, and from other recorded statements of Boydell, that he wished to do for English painting what he had done for English engraving, to make it respected by foreigners." ( DNB ) Sir Joshua Reynolds (1723-1792) was considered in his time the greatest artist of the era, and the brightest star of the constellation of artists who contributed to Boydell's Shakespeare Gallery. Here, in a great whirlwind of otherworldly beings, he shows Macbeth confronting, as it were, his true fate, having been deceived by a partial revelation at the start of the action. Macbeth's muscular, commanding figure waves his long dagger uselessly at the insubstantial spirits and ghosts, while the ghoulish witches and their entourage black magical beings calmly watch him. Cf. Santaniello (op.cit.). Stipple engraving. Printed on wove Whatman paper. In perfect condition. Image size: 17 1/4 x 23 1/8 inches.

        The China Limodorn

      London 1802 - Dr. Robert John Thornton (1768-1837) hand-colored engraving 21.75" x 17", The China Limodorn, is from his book titled The Temple of Flora, or Garden of Nature, Picturesque Botanical Plates of the new Illustration of the Sexual System of Linnaeus. Thornton began to indulge his lifelong love for botany in 1799. Determined to surpass the Germans in scholarship and the French in printing artistry, he planned a book of philosophic and literary distinction, illustrated by some of the best painters working in Britain. Within the book there are five frontispieces, portraits and allegorical compositions with thirty-two plates of flowers. Thornton made up each set with twenty-nine or thirty-two in varied arrangements. The lengthy text was primarily written by Thornton himself, where artists were commissioned to design and paint the images. The majority of designs were done by Peter Henderson and Philip Reinagle. The intaglio plates - a varied combination of mezzotint, aquatint, line and stipple engraving, finished with watercolor -were executed by Bartolozzi and other English masters. The title notwithstanding, few of the plates are of scientific interest. It is the forceful stylization of flowers, together with their historical, allegorical and/or fanciful backgrounds (prescribed by Thornton) that place the Temple of Flora among the greatest botanical books of all time. Dr. Thornton, who gave his life and his fortune to this work, created one of England's monuments to Romantic idealism. With slight foxing and staining in margins, this plate has dramatic vibrancy and coloring and is in excellent condition.

        MEMOIRS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION, SO FAR AS IT RELATED TO THE STATES OF NORTH AND SOUTH CAROLINA, AND GEORGIA.

      New York: Printed by David Longworth, 1802. - Two volumes. 506; 446pp. Portrait in first volume. Contemporary calf, spines gilt, leather labels. First volume expertly rebacked with original backstrip laid down, gilt leather label; second volume with modern calf backstrip in matching style, gilt leather label. Boards a bit shelfworn. Early ownership signature on verso of frontispiece in first volume; institutional ink stamp on titlepage of second volume. Text tanned, some foxing. Good. A scarce work, and one of the most valuable firsthand narratives of the American Revolution in the South. At the outbreak of the Revolution, Moultrie was a politician and an officer in the South Carolina colonial regiment (where he had risen to prominence during the Cherokee War). He was eventually promoted to the position of brigadier-general in the Continental Army. Moultrie fought in several important southern battles, including the defense of Fort Sullivan in 1776, and helped lead the defense of Charleston from the British before his forces were finally overcome in 1780. He was taken prisoner and held for more than a year, after which the British tried to bring him to their side by offering him a command in Jamaica. "Of great value for the history of the Revolution in South Carolina and Georgia" - DAB. "The author's position as Governor of South Carolina, afforded him ample facilities to consult original authorities, and the result of his researches is a good book" - Sabin. "One of the most interesting of the Revolutionary narratives" - Larned. HOWES M865, "aa." SABIN 51142. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 2704. LARNED 1441. DAB XIII, pp.293-94.

        On the Theory of Light and Colours [An Account of some Cases of the Production of Colours, not hitherto described]. The Bakerian Lecture.

      W. Bulmer for G. & W. Nicol, London 1802 - In: Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, Volume 92, Part I, 1802, pp. 12-48 & 387-97. London: W. Bulmer for G. & W. Nicol, 1802. 2 parts, 4to. Engraved plate by Basire in part 1. Red modern faux leather. Parts I and II bound in one volume, 528 pp. Article Part 1: Dibner 152; PMM 259; Norman 2275. Article Part 2 Norman 2276 - FIRST EDITIONS. Part 1 is 'an epoch-making contribution to the theory of light in all its phases'. Read as the Bakerian lecture, November 12, 1801, Young firmly endorsed Huygen's wave theory of light, displacing Newton's corpuscular theory which had been favored for most of the 18th century, and so found explanations for unresolved optical phenomena such as interference. Part 2 is a further explanation of the wave theory. - Also in this volume: WOLLASTON, William Hyde. A Method of examining refractive and dispersive Powers, by prismatic Reflection. In: Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London 92, Part I, 1802, 4to. pp. 365-380 - Sparrow, Milestones of Science 198. - The third major scientific discovery announced in this volume of the Transactions is Wollaston's discovery of black lines crossing the colored band of the solar spectrum. "The science of astrophysics began" with Wollaston's report of this phenomenon to the Royal Society (Singer, Short History of Scientific Ideas to 1900). Wollaston's examination of the solar spectrum, here described, revealed for the first time the numerous black lines afterwards connected with the name of Fraunhofer; and his paper is one of the most significant "incunabula" of the discovery of spectrum analysis. Twelve years later the appearance of these dark lines (called "Fraunhofer lines") was confirmed by the maker of Wollaston's original spectroscope. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Cours élémentaire de Tactique Navale, dédié à Bonaparte ; par Audibert Ramatuelle, ancien officier de la marine militaire.

      Paris, Baudoin, Imprimeur de l'Institut National, An X, (1802). 1802 - 1 vol. fort in-4° (260 x 200 mm.) de : xxv (Faux-titre, Titre, Epître, Préface), [3] pp. (Lettre, Table des chapitres), 535 pp., [2] pp. (Faux-titre, Titre pour les planches), 68 planches dépliantes (dont 1 en couleurs). Plein veau d'époque, dos lisse orné, pièce de titre de maroquin rouge, roulette dorée sur les coupes. (Salissures et défauts d'usage, coiffe supérieure restaurée. Traces de mouillures (texte et planches) plus prononcées sur quelques feuillets). Edition originale de cet ouvrage qui marque un important tournant dans l’histoire de la tactique navale. Dédié au premier Consul Bonaparte, cet ouvrage paraît en 1802, alors que la paix d’Amiens vient juste d’être signée (le 25 mars), par Lord Cornwallis et Joseph Bonaparte. Il ne s’agit que d’une trêve, et la guerre est à nouveau déclarée en 1803 (essentiellement pour des raisons économiques). A cette époque, la marine française est inférieure à la Royal Navy : elle est désorganisée par la Révolution et sa tactique navale qui n’a pas évoluée depuis le 18ème siècle est obsolète. Audibert Ramatuelle (1759-1840), lieutenant de vaisseau pendant la guerre d’Indépendance américaine, entreprend la rédaction de cet ouvrage au début des années 1790, mais la publication a lieu en 1802, quatre ans après la défaite infligée par Nelson à la flotte française en 1798 à Aboukir. Comprenant bien que la guerre qui s’annonce est essentiellement maritime, le but qu’il propose dans ce traité est de : « rendre son utile activité à ce grand moyen de puissance nationale », c’est-à-dire la marine. Il se distingue des penseurs du 18ème siècle, comme Bigot de Morogues, Bourdé de Villehuet, d'Amblimont, Grenier, Verdun de La Crenne dont il juge les méthodes trop abstraites, méthodiques, descriptives et formalistes, et il est le premier tacticien français à s’inspirer de Nelson et Suffren. Il s’agit pour lui de former les officiers en s’appuyant essentiellement sur l’expérience, et en supprimant la formation purement abstraite, tout en donnant des bases de tactiques. Pour Ramatuelle, un officier doit avoir des plans et instructions mais surtout une certaine latitude pour pouvoir évoluer dans une « position » qui permet une manœuvre, car « La tactique navale proprement dite, est l’art de formation des ordres et des passages des uns aux autres. La tactique navale est en dernière analyse, l’art des positions en présence de l’ennemi, soit pour attaquer, soit pour se défendre, soit que l’on chasse, soit que l’on soit chassé. » La guerre devient plus offensive et plus destructive, et pour Ramatuelle la principale innovation est la hardiesse technique, théorie qui s’appuie sur l’idée qu’il faut savoir profiter des « forces relatives », sans penser que l’issue d’un combat dépend exclusivement des « forces absolues ». Ramatuelle a orienté la pensée tactique vers l’offensive, en sachant analyser les progrès tactiques réalisés par Nelson et Suffren et a donné une finalité aux évolutions et aux manœuvres. L’ouvrage est illustré de 68 planches, dont une de pavillons en couleurs, décrivant des mouvements militaires. Bel exemplaire de cet ouvrage militaire novateur. 1 vol. 4to. 68 folding plates, 1 coloured. Contemporary calf. First edition of this innovative treatise on naval tactics, written by Ramatuelle (1759-1840) who took part in the American Revolutionary War, dedicated to Bonaparte, inspired by Suffren and Nelson. Fine copy. Polak 7903; biblio mar./Stratistic-"Dictionnaire des marins français", Paris, Tallandier.
