Francesco Hayez (Venezia 1791 - Milano 1882)
1803. Acquaforte misure: mm 267 x 298 Pittore italiano, massimo esponente del romanticismo storico. I genitori di umile condizione lo affidano ad una sorella della madre moglie dell'antiquario e collezionista di opere d'arte Francesco Binasco. Lo zio, riconosciute le doti artistiche del nipote, lo impiega inizialmente come restauratore, ma sarà lo stesso Francesco a farsi ammettere nella bottega dal pittore Francesco Magiotto e poi frequentare tra il 1803 e il 1806 i corsi di pittura della Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia. Vincendo un concorso indetto dall'Accademia di Venezia, a diciotto anni si trasferisce a Roma sotto la guida del maestro e protettore Antonio Canova. Il rientro da Roma, oltre che per ragioni personali, fu voluto dal conte Leopoldo Cicognara affinché Hayez potesse partecipare, con un dipinto, all'omaggio artistico offerto dalle province venete all'imperatore Francesco I in occasione delle sue nozze (le quarte: 1816) con Carolina Augusta di Baviera. Successivamente Hayez si trasferisce a Milano dove diviene professore all'Accademia di Brera; da qui in poi le sue opere, sia quadri storici che i ritratti, sono esempi fondanti della nuova corrente romantica. Il soggetto di questa stampa: La pietà di Ezechia è tratto dal dipinto realizzato nel 1817 come omaggio artistico offerto dalle province venete all'imperatore Francesco I in occasione delle sue nozze con Carolina Augusta di Baviera. Hayez stesso realizza l'incisione per l'album che riproduceva tutte le opere eseguite per il fausto evento: Omaggio delle Provincie Venete alla Maestà di Carolina Augu … [Click Below for Full Description]

KRÜDENER, Barbara Juliane (Von Vietinghof), Freifrau von. 1764-1825/6
Paris: N. Giguet and L.-G. and J.-F. Michaud for H. Henrichs, 1803. Sheep-backed speckled boards, flat spine, gilt-lettered title. First Edition of this semi-autobiographical epistolary novel by one of the leading architects of the Holy or Grand Alliance, which held sway in Europe from 1815 to 1853. Born in Riga to a wealthy family with access to the court of Catherine of Russia, the author married a local noble and diplomat much her senior. She sought relief from their distant relations in imagining her husband as the lover described in the letters published here, a sentimental romance. Her subsequent profound religious conversion opened the door to apocalyptic faith and intimacy with Tsar Alexander I, whom she prompted to initiate the Grand Alliance. She was known for her wild expenditures and charismatic proselytizing and is the subject of more than a dozen books. In good condition. ¶Ungherini, Manuel de bibliographie...des femmes célèbres II(2): 110; Giraud, Nouvelle bibliographie du roman epistolaire 1804/5a.

Giovanni Demin (Belluno 1786 - Tarzo 1859)
1803. Acquaforte misure: 265 x 297 Pittore e incisore italiano. Si formò a Belluno presso artisti locali e nella bottega dell'incisore Paolo de Filippi, Solo nel 1803 riuscì a trasferirsi a Venezia per frequentare l'Accademia di Belle Arti godendo della protezione del conte Leopoldo Cicognara. Nel 1809 lo troviamo a Roma, dopo aver ottenuto il pensionato, insieme a Francesco Hayez. Qui accolti dal maestro Antonio Canova, ottennero la commissione di alcuni affreschi nel cantiere della Galleria Chiaramonti e nei Musei Vaticani. Negli stessi anni De Min collaborò anche come disegnatore per le tavole della Storia della scultura del Cicognara (Venezia 1813-18). Tornò a Venezia dove si dedicò quasi esclusivamente alla pratica di decoratore. Dal 1818 Demin si stabilì a Padova dove fu molto attivo intervenendo con importanti cicli decorativi di impronta e gusto neoclassico nei più prestigiosi palazzi cittadini. Il soggetto di questa stampa è tratto dal dipinto realizzato nel 1817 come omaggio artistico offerto dalle province venete all'imperatore Francesco I in occasione delle sue nozze (le quarte: 1816) con Carolina Augusta di Baviera. L'omaggio fu un'idea del conte Cicognara che riuscì nel doppio intento di evitare di sottrarre denaro alla cittadinanza e finanziò decine fra i migliori artisti ed artigiani veneti. Il dipinto di De Min è ad oggi disperso ma l'autore stesso egli realizzò l'incisione per l'album che riproduceva, commentate da brani di Cicognara e Pietro Giordani, tutte le opere eseguite per il fausto evento: Omaggio delle Provincie Venete alla Maestà di Carolina Augu … [Click Below for Full Description]

Alexander Chalmers
London: 1803. BE SURE TO CHECK OUT MY EBAY STORE! I COMBINE AUCTIONS TO SAVE ON SHIPPING COSTS! Thank you and enjoy browsing my store! Here is a RARE set of books! This is a complete 45 volume set of the 1803 British Classical Essays by Alexander Chalmers. From the research I have done, I think this set is a FIRST EDITION set. To add to the provenance of this set, all the books have a label on the inside cover that shows this set was gifted to Jas. E. Goodrich? on Dec. 25th, 1915 by a man named HORATIO LOOMIS HARMON. That name might be worth researching. Evidently he (if it is the same man) was pretty influential in the building of Kansas City and with the railroads of the late 1800s. This set was bought at an auction in St. Louis, so it is very possible that the Harmon in this book is the same as the one in KC. The 1st volume is missing the front cover. The LAST (45th) volume has the BACK cover, but it is removed from the book. The other books range in condition from fair to very good. SEE PICS. I believe these are leather covered books. I tried to get pics of one of the better covers, and one of the more worn/discolored covers...to give you an idea of the overall condition. Overall, I would call these in good shape for book that are almost 215 years old! SHIPPING INCLUDES INSURANCE AND SIGNATURE CONFIRMATION.

With thirteen copper-plates. Contemporary half calf over marbled boards, rebacked with original spine neatly laid down. Spine with green calf spine label. Label lettered in gilt.

"In the spring of 1799 Fox began a course of lectures on the teeth to students at Guy's, and he continued as a lecturer there until his death. This was certainly the first series of lectures specifically on dentistry to be given in Britain, and probably in the world. On them he based his two books, The Natural History of the Human Teeth (1803) and The History and Treatment of the Diseases of the Teeth (1806), which were the first important dental works in English to have illustrations of operative dental procedures and of pathological dental conditions.

SAY, Jean-Baptiste.
Paris: Printed by Crapelet for Deterville, 1803. 2 volumes, octavo (206 x 134 mm). Recent brown half calf, red morocco labels, brown marbled sides, top edges trimmed, others untrimmed. Original front wrapper and spine panel bound at rear of each volume. Bindings in fine condition, original wrappers slightly frayed and with repair. Some light foxing, some pages with peripheral paper faults and opened a little roughly, a few marginal paper repairs not affecting text, some intermittent staining at head in vol. I. Overall a very good copy, preserving sections of the original wrappers, and with generous fore and lower margins. First edition of Say's masterpiece, one of the great works of the classical period of economic thought. Initially not republished until 1814, partly due to Napoleon's hostility to Say, the work thereafter went through 32 editions, and with Smith's Wealth of Nations (whose doctrine Say expounded from an early age), became the most popular work on economics in the first half of the 19th century. "It was the first really popular treatise on political economy ever published in France; his main divisions and his terminology have become classical and have served as a model for innumerable subsequent treatises" (Palgrave, III, p. 357). Despite early claims that his work was derivative of Smith, it has long been proved that Say ranks with Sismondi and Cournot in the originality of his contributions to economic theory, and Schumpeter calls his work "the most important of the links in the chain that leads from Cantillon and Turgot to Walras" (History of Economic Ana … [Click Below for Full Description]

First published in Paris the previous year under the title La pitié; also published in octavo format in both London and Paris in 1803. According to Brunet, the London editions contain several passages relating to the French Revolution and to the king which appeared in only a very few copies of the Paris editions.Jacques Delille (1738–1813) was professor of Latin poetry at the Collège de France, and much lauded in his time for his translation of Virgil's Georgics (1769). He fled France during the Revolution, emigrating first to Basel, then to Germany and finally to London. As a poet he rapidly fell out of fashion after his death, but his importance as a theorist is still underappreciated, perhaps partly on account of his royalist sympathies.'In order to bring about a gradual reform in poetic style Delille sought first to break down the hierarchy of words which the classicists had e … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dobson, Thomas, ed.
Thomas Dobson, Philadelphia, 1803. Quarto (28.5 cm), pp. Volume 1: [4], [iii], iv-vi, 704, [4], with 26 plates; Volume 2: [vi], 734, [4], with 13 plates; Volume 3: [vi], 566, iv, [4], with 14 plates. Full leather with red and black spine labels with gilt text and decorations, four raised bands. Blue endpapers. Hand-laid paper. Supplement to the first American edition (unauthorized) of the Encyclopedia Britannia (aka: "Dobson's Encyclopædia," the first printed in the United States). Exquisitely rendered copperplate engravings by Joseph Bowes, Alexander Lawson, Henry W. Weston, Robert Scot, Benjamin Jones and John Draper, plus one copperplate etching (Appendix #2) by Lawson."The combination of size, paper, type, and copperplate engraving [all "executed by American artists"] sets the Encyclopaedia apart from other early American publications and makes it, as Lawrence Wroth has written, the most significant achievement 'of professional craftsmen working together for an enlightened publisher' that had yet been seen in the United States." (Arner, Dobson's Encyclopedia, p. 108).Two leaves in Volume 1 have a 2 1/2" closed tear and plate 39 has a 3" closed tear through the border but just barely reaching the artwork. Several pages show heavy foxing/staining. Both boards and front free endpapers of Volume 3 are detached. This copy was owned by Joseph C. Taylor, with his name stamp in each volume. Taylor (1804-51) was a prominent Troy, New York businessman, civic leader, fire chief and deacon in the North Baptist Church, for whom a monument was erected by the fire department (Troy Dai … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: A. Strahan. Commentaries on The Laws of England, In Four Books by Sir William Blackstone, 1803 The Fourteenth Edition, with Notes and Additions by Edward Christian London: Printed by A. Strahan All four volumes were rebound in the near past and have seen very little use since then, which is apparent by how stiff several of the covers open (due to the new end papers and bindings not being opened/flexed very much). Original content was kept, including an introductory page in old cursive explaining the scope and usefulness of Blackstone's Commentaries (see photo). Condition is Good Plus at a minimum. Light discoloration and scuffing to the covers and one or two indents into the edges of the covers. Internal contents are very good, with occasional light foxing. Very minimal notes or writing in the margins, and no text is obscured. Page 197 of volume one is lightly torn on the outer edge. Does not reach the text and encroaches to maybe half the width of the blank page margin. A good tight solid set in four massive volumes, measuring 8 1/2" high by 5 1/2" wide by 3 1/2" wide volume 1; 3 1/2" wide volume 2; 2 3/4" wide volume three and 2 3/4" wide volume four. This set is exceptionally wide in comparison to normal bindings because all four volumes are interspaced with a blank end page on which to take notes. So, a page of text, then a blank page for notes. Page of text, blank page for notes. All pages are blank, with no notes on them. All together they make an impressive display, so if you're looking to make a statement, this is it! NOTE: There is a professional law book d … [Click Below for Full Description]

BERTHOLLET (Claude Louis).
107976 BERTHOLLET (Claude Louis). Essai de Statique Chimique. 1803 BERTHOLLET (Claude Louis). Essai de Statique Chimique. De l'Imprimerie de Demonville et Soeurs, à Paris, an XI (1803). 2 volumes in-8. VIII. 543pp. et VIII. 555pp. 15pp. Plein veau raciné, dos lisse ornés, pièces de titre, de tomaison et d'ex-praemio en maroquin rouge aux dos, tranches marbrées (reliure de l'époque restaurée). Edition Originale. Cet ouvrage contient une série de mémoires que Berthollet avait préparée pendant son séjour en Egypte avec Bonaparte et dans lesquels il expose sa théorie de l'affinité, d'où sont sorties les célèbres lois qui portent son nom. "Berthollet est, après Lavoisier, le chimiste français le plus important de la fin du XVIIIe siècle. Il a été à la fois un théoricien et un praticien. (...) Dans son 'Essai de statique chimique' (1803), il fut le premier à définir les notions d'équilibre chimique et d'action de masse. Les règles dites de Berthollet sont la première contribution sérieuse au problème de la prévision des réactions chimiques" (Encyclopaedia Universalis)."Ce livre ne fut pas bien compris de ses contemporains, car beaucoup des idées qu'il renfermait étaient en avance sur son temps" (Dumas, Histoire des Sciences).Exemplaire de premier prix du concours de l'hôpital d'instruction de Strasbourg pour l'année 1824 (pièces en queue de dos et feuillet manuscrit contre-collé à la page de titre du premier volume). Catalogue du libraire parisien Baillière relié en fin de second volume.Rousseurs, mais bon exemplaire par ailleurs.
