        Description des plantes nouvelles et peu connues, cultivées dans le jardin de J.M. Cels

      de l'Imprimerie de Crapelet, Paris 1803 - Folio, 100 engraved plates each with descriptive letterpress sheet; complete with the half-title; a large copy, edges uncut, in contemporary green quarter morocco gilt. One of the most elegant botanical books, this study of "new and little known" plants in the gardens of Jacques Philippe Martin Cels in Paris was the first of the three major works on exotic plants produced by the great Ventenat, and a superb example of this golden age of botanical illustration. Ventenat's work, which publishes a striking series of ten Australian specimens, represents the apogee of the French fascination with exotic botany. Cels, who had originally been a tax collector at the Paris barriers, had to change direction after the Revolution: he converted his private gardens in Montrouge, just south of Paris, into one of the foremost commercial nurseries in Europe, where he collected and sold numerous rare species and provided exotica for, among others, the Empress Josephine's garden at Malmaison.Altogether 100 rare species from Cels' gardens are described and illustrated here, the majority depicted by Pierre-Joseph Redouté with others the work of his brother Henri-Joseph, as well as Cloquet, Laneau, Maréchal and Sauvage. These include exotics from North America provided by André Michaux (1748-1802) and Louis-Agustin-Guillaume Bosc (1759-1828), from Africa provided by Pierre-Marie-Auguste Broussonet (1755-1834) and from the Near East and the Pacific provided by Jacques-Julien Houton de Labillardière (1755-1834). These Pacific and Australian specimens derived from the D'Entrecasteaux voyage on which, as it happened, Ventenat's younger brother Louis served as chaplain, but was one of those who died on the return journey.French interest in plants from the farthest reaches of the known world is confirmed by the inclusion of ten Australian plants here, seven of which were drawn by Redouté himself while five are given their earliest scientific notice. Grown from cuttings, they wintered in the Orangerie hothouse. Included are the Mimosa distachya, discovered by Felix la Haye on the east coast of New Holland during the 1792 visit of the D'Entrecasteaux voyage, as well as the Mimosa linifolia and the Melaleuca Hypericifolia (a full listing of the Australian plants is available on request).The cultivation of Australian species in European gardens had begun after the first species had been brought back by Joseph Banks (1743-1820) and James Cook (1728-1779), with the Royal Gardens at Kew amassing an important collection. The wars between Britain and France following the French Revolution of 1789, made Australian species very rare on the European continent. The Australian species in the Description des plantes were nevertheless acquired after 1792, with Cels' gardens subsequently being an important source for other botanical gardens on the continent.This book includes a fascinating two-page note by Cels detailing his background, and noting some of the correspondents who had helped him in his endeavours, including officers who sailed with D'Entrecasteaux and Baudin, but also English savants such as Sir Joseph Banks and William Aiton. This was the first great work Cels made in conjunction with Pierre Ventenat (1757-1808), botanist to Josephine, Lycée professor in charge of the Pantheon library and a member of L'Institut de France. Combining with Redouté, the three men went on to work together on the Choix des Plantes (1803-1808), as well as completing the third significant title in this impromptu series, the Jardin de la Malmaison, cataloguing Josephine's own magnificent collection, which also included many specimens from around the world, including some sent to her by Banks, Napoleon in Egypt, Baudin in Australia, and Alexander von Humboldt in South America. Some light foxing, a few bumps to binding, but a most attractive uncut copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Antique Print-COTTAGE-HOUSEWIFE-SPINNING-PIG-CAT-Singleton-Turner-1803

      - Original antique print, titled: 'The Industrious Cottage Wife'. It shows: a housewife, seated outside her cottage. Her young son is feeding the pigs, while a cat is seated next to her. She is spinning. Rare print. Original etching and mezzotint engraving, coloured a-la-poupee with watercolour highlights on a vellin paper type. Engraved by C. Turner after H. Singleton. Charles Turner (1773-1857) was an English mezzotint engraver and draughtsman. Through his mother's influence he had access to the famous gallery at Blenheim Palace. Turner moved to London in about 1789, was apprenticed to the engraver John Jones, enrolled in the Royal Academy Schools and worked for Alderman John Boydell, the important print publisher. Turner was skilled in stipple and aquatint as well as mezzotint, his diverse talents producing a large range of subjects covering topography and genre. His main interest, though, was portraiture, and the greater part of the more than six hundred plates he created during his career, were portraits. His close friendship with J.M.W. Turner, led to his engraving much of the artist's work, and to his engraving twenty-four of the plates for Liber Studiorum. He engraved many of the finest Henry Raeburn portraits, including Sir Walter Scott. A remarkable set of his engravings, "The Rivers of England", published between 1823 and 1827, confirmed his great ability as a landscape artist. He was elected an associate of the Royal Academy in 1828. Henry Singleton (1766-1839) was an English painter, born into an artistic family in London. He was mainly known for his portraits. Condition: Fair, given age. Margins irregular with small tears and paper loss, partly closed/repaired. One tear into the image. General age-related light toning and/or staining from handling. Please study scan carefully The overall size is ca. 19.7 x 27.8 inch. The image size is ca. 17.3 x 25.2 inch. The overall size is ca. 50 x 70.5 cm. The image size is ca. 44 x 64 cm.

        Tableau religieux et politique de l'Indostan, ou précis historique des révolutions de l'Inde, où l'on voit les manoeuvres employées par la Compagnie anglaise, pour s'emparer exclusivement du commerce, des terres et des manufactures des peuples indous, et assurer leur tyrannie par l'expulsion des autres nations européennes

      Chez Marchant 1803 - - Chez Marchant, A Paris 1803, In-8 (12,5x20cm), (4) xxiij, 472pp., relié. - Edition originale, rare. L'ouvrage est suivi de deux mémoires présentés en 1781, à Louis XVI, par l'auteur de cet ouvrage, contenant un plan pour anéantir la puissance anglaise dans l'Inde, et d'un troisième sur les moyens actuels d'y parvenir encore. Reliure en plein veau raciné d'époque. Dos lisse orné de fers à l'urne et au soleil. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Encadrement de grecques sur les plats. Un manque en tête. Traces de frottements. Un coin émoussé. Bel exemplaire, malgré quelques défauts. Après une histoire politique et religieuse de l'Indostan (la plus grande partie de l'Inde actuelle) qui est une transcription des "Mémoires historiques, politiques et économiques sur les révolutions anglaises dans l'Indostan" de J.-A. Pallerot de Saint-Lubin, 1782, l'ouvrage s'attache à établir l'histoire et l'actualité de l'occupation des régions de l'Indostan par les anglais, des diverses batailles entre anglais et indous, du commerce au Soudabar, au Bengale, au Guzurate. Le but de l'auteur est de donner des informations précises sur la présence anglaise (armée, commerce.) et des moyens envisageables de les chasser des terres indiennes. Dans son mémoire à Louis XVI, l'auteur dévoile plusieurs plans militaires pour reprendre l'Inde aux anglais ainsi que plusieurs mesures qui les rendraient impopulaires aux populations indigènes. Par une juste étude historique et culturelle, l'auteur cherche à démontrer que la présence anglaise est une injure à l'Inde, et que la France serait plus respectueuse et juste dans sa présence aux Indes. On remarquera qu'en dernière page, on trouve la mention "Fin de la première partie", mais la seconde, qui devait paraître plus tard et être occupée par divers mémoires sur l'occupation anglaise, n'a jamais été édité. L'ouvrage est un des plus importants témoignages sur les exactions des anglais en Inde au XVIIIe.

        Voyage dans la Basse et Haute Egypte : Bataille des pyramides. (Planche 12).

      Original, unshaved, full-page etching from the "Imperial edition" of the Description de l'Égypte, or 'Recueil des observations et recherches faites en Égypte pendant l'expédition française, publié par les ordres de Sa Majesté l'Empereur Napoléon le Grand [A Collection of the observations and research carried out in Egypt during the French expedition, published on the orders of his Majesty the Emperor Napoleon the Great]'. Produced between February 1802 and 1830 on the orders of Naopleon Bonaparte and published between 1809 and 1828, 1,000 copies were printed and distributed to institutions, on vergé paper with an 'Égypte ancienne et moderne' watermark, visible when held up to the light. Light marginal spotting not touching image, otherwise in very fresh, fine condition. An engraving from the Description de l'Egypte, one of the masterpieces of French printing and the birth of a new field: Egyptology. A gigantic survey of Egypt at the time of Bonaparte's conquests in 1798 and 1799, the work is divided into 13 volumes of engravings making up 892 plates, of which 72 colored, as well as presenting the splendors of the Egypt of the Pharaohs in 9 volumes. The other volumes discuss natural history and present a fascinating portrait of Coptic and Islamic Egypt as it was seen by Bonaparte's Eastern Armies. The 'Egyptian campaign', militarily a disaster, demonstrates, through the engravings of the Description d'Egypte, the scientific success it nonetheless became thanks to the 167 expert members of the Commission of the Sciences and Arts of the Institut d'Egypte [Egyptian Institute] who followed Napoleon's army. The Institut gathered together in Egypt the mathematician Monge, the chemist Berthollet, the naturalist Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire as well as numerous artists, engineers, architects and doctors. They were tasked with re-discovering modern and ancient Egypt and displaying its natural treasures as well as the know-how of its inhabitants. This edition, the so-called "Imperial" edition of the plates for the Description de l'Egypte was printed in four large formats, two of which were specially created for it and christened "Moyen-Egypte" and "Grand-Egypte". A special press was built to print it, the process extending over 20 years, from 1809 to 1829. The "Imperial" edition proved so popular that a second edition, this time in black and white and without the "Egypte ancienne et moderne" watermark - known as the "Royal Edition" - was published during the Restoration by the printing house of C.-L.-F. Panckoucke (Paris). The engravings of the Description d'Egypte owe a great deal to Baron Dominique-Vivant Denon, illustrator, diplomat, collector and later Director of the Musée Napoléon (the Louvre). His exploration of the South of Egypt gave Bonaparte the idea of sending the experts of the Institut there, thus creating a faithful and complete portrait of the area. This was the research gathered together from 1802 in the mammoth Description de L'Egypte. Denon embarked on this story of archeological exploration at the age of 51, reaching first Alexandria and then Cairo before exploring Upper Egypt. Along with the members of the Institut d'Egypte, the Natural History Museum's painter H.J. Redouté (brother of Pierre-Joseph Redouté, author of Roses), the mineralogist Dolomiue, and the draughtsman Joly, Denon then explored the Nile Delta and Lower Egypt. When, however, he joined the 21st Light Infantry Regiment as it marched across Upper Egypt in pursuit of the retreating Mameluks in November 1798, he found himself the only civilian. In the very midst of the battle itself, he reeled off sketches of the works of art that peppered his path right up to the threshold of the Sudan. He said that he had crossed "a country that is, apart from its name, entirely unknown to Europeans, and therefore everything was worth describing" (Voyages dans la Basse et la Haute Egypte pendant les campagnes de Bonaparte en 1798 et 1799, 1817). On his return to Cairo, the great general, spellbound by Denon's accounts and drawings ordered two commissions to be set up, led by the engineers Fourier and Costaz. They were tasked with the scientific study of the ancient remains in Upper Egypt; research that proved a significant contribution to the monumental Description d'Egypte, from which this plate is taken. ANCIENT EGYPTThese engravings therefore represent a unique body of material that contributed to Jean-François Champollion's deciphering of hieroglyphics, and which mark the beginning of the line of Mariette, Maspero and Carter, who would reshape the face of Ancient Egypt. They also started a craze that gave birth to the phenomenon of Egyptomania and the Orientalism of Delacroix, Fromentin, Marilhat, Decamps and Théophile Gautier. Financiers, politicians, merchants and all kinds of treasure-hunters made their way to the banks of the Nile in search of riches, following this rediscovery of Egypt. The originators of Egyptology, these plates were to have a hugely influential afterlife. NATURAL HISTORYThese engravings show the scientific genius of the French experts then working on the ground in Egypt, laying the foundations for its becoming a French colony. This colonizing project, which had been mooted since the reign of Louis XIV, was now accompanied - with Bonaparte's arrival - by an in-depth study of the country's fauna and flora thanks to the work of the most eminent naturalists, mineralogists, and entomologists of the day. The Description de l'Egypte shows all of this immense scientific undertaking through its engravings, which were done after drawings by members of the Academy of Science, including Etienne Geoffroy Saint-Hillaire, Alire Raffenau-Delile and Henri-Joseph Redouté. In the words of Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire, "We have gathered the material for the greatest work that a nation could hope to undertake. In mourning the fate of so many brave soldiers who - after so many glorious exploits - fell in Egypt, we shall be able to console ourselves that such precious works came into being." MODERN EGYPTThe genius of the experts of the Institut d'Egypte is revealed in the plates of the section known as "Modern Egypte". Architecture, industry, social organization, conditions of health, irrigation, music, and crafts, are all presented with exceptional precision and powers of description. The spirit of Diderot and d'Alembert's Encyclopédie runs through the work of the draughtsmen of the Description de L'Egypte, who accompanied the text volumes with numerous detailed plates, undertaking to produce a portrait of the local population that was imbued with both beauty and respect. Wealthy Pashas and simple artisan potters are sensitively represented here, going about their business in beautifully composed images that nonetheless do not fall into the traps of idealism or caricature. ISLAMIC ARCHITECTURE (the "Cairo" plates) The set of engravings to which this plate belongs constitutes one of the first complete studies of the monuments of Islamic Egypt in Cairo, bringing together maps, sections and elevations of mosques, mausoleums and fortifications, from the Tulunid era in the 9th century up to the Mameluk constructions contemporaneous with the arrival of the Bonapartist troops. At the same time, the architects and engineers of the Institut d'Egypte also made a big series of plates dedicated to civilian housing and edifices in Cairo, including both grander and more modest constructions, providing a precious picture of life in Cairo at the end of the 19th century. BAB AL FOUTOUH Bab el-Foutouh, " The Conquest Gate" marks the northern limit of Fatimid old Cairo. Rebuilt in 1087, it is highly defensive in nature owing to the turbulent climate in 11th Century Cairo, which saw a number of popular uprisings. An imposing gate, it has two semicircular towers with low-slung arches made of heavy blocks of stone anchored within the ramparts. The sizeable passage through the gate (4.85m wide by 6.79m high) has a shallow dome. BAB EL NASR Bab el-Nasr, "The Victory Gate" is on the northern wall of the Fatimid fortress in Cairo. Its two enormous rectangular towers were rebuilt in 1087 after a long period of popular uprisings. On this highly attractive frontal image signed Protain, one can admire the sculpted shields in the corners of the gate and on the towers, symbolizing victory and protection against invaders. After taking Cairo, Napoleon named all the towers along the wall of the fortress after the officers assigned to guard them. Their names are still engraved on the upper parts of the walls of the gate. SULTAN HASSAN MOSQUEThe massive architectural complex constructed by Sultan Hassan at the foot of the citadel in Cairo was built in the ostentatious style so characteristic of Mameluk architecture. Completed in 1356, the Sultan Hassan Mosque has a monumental gate and a 57m high minaret. This group of buildings, comprising a mausoleum that was never put to use, was strategically built on the site of a square that saw the start of a number of popular uprisings. The mosque was heavily inspired by Iranian models. Philae This plate is taken from a set of engravings dedicated to the Temple of Isis on the island of Philae. The final bastion of the worship of the ancient Egyptian gods, the temple of Isis was the last pagan temple to be in use before it was closed in the 6th century A.D. under Justinian. Construction on the temple began under the Ptolemies, a period of growth for the Isis cult. Isis was the sister and wife of Osiris and mother to Horus. Kom Ombo (Ombos) The Kom Ombo site, 40 kilometers from Aswan, is home to one of the best preserved ancient Egyptian temples, dedicated to Sobek, a crocodile god and Haroeris, a form of Horus. Built in the Ptolemaic era, it was actually founded during the XVIIIth Dynasty. Its massive Composite capitals and highly accomplished reliefs are captured accurately by the draughtsmen of the Institut d'Egypte, Jollois, Balzac and Cécile. The dual aspect of its design, intended for worship of two different divine triads - those of Sobek and Haroeris - is reproduced in great detail by the architects and engineers of the Egyptian campaign through this set of prints, which preceded the first archeological digs in the building by Auguste Mariette in 1828.Edfu This plate is taken from a series of views of the great temple at Edfu and the various buildings in its cultic complex. The temple of Horus, a jewel of Ptolemaic architecture and exceptionally well-preserved, is made up of a majestic entry gate and a hypostyle chamber, which are both extensively documented thanks to the engravings by the experts of the Institut d'Egypte. Begun in 237 BC by Ptolemy III and completed 180 years later under Tiberius, it proved an extraordinary sight for the draughtsmen come to explore the left bank of the Nile.Esna and its environs The town of Esna (Esneh or Latopolis in Bonaparte's time), lies fifty kilometers to the south of Luxor. The experts from the Institut de l'Egypte documented their discovery of its temple, dedicated to Khnum, one of the gods of creation who worked with clay and had the head of a ram; he controlled the life-giving flooding of the Nile, the source of fertility. He was associated with Nebt-uu, the mistress of the countryside and Menhyt, a goddess with the head of a lion. This temple, partially rebuilt during the Ptolemaic era, was added to right up to the reign of Tiberius. The draughtsmen also produced a number of views of the neighboring temples, most notably the less well-preserved temple of Contra-Latopolis to the north of Esna.Thebes Medinet-Habu Close to Thebes and Luxor on the left bank of the Nile, the city of Medinet-Habu is home to one of the most attractive temples of New Kingdom period Egypt, the mortuary temple of Ramses III. This dates from the middle of the 12th century BC, and is based on the famous Ramesseum of his predecessor, which it surpasses in size. A funerary temple celebrating the Pharaoh, the experts of the Institut d'Egypte set about creating cross-sections, plans and elevations, and most especially capturing its numerous bas-reliefs. The architects and draughtsmen also focused on the Royal Palace and its internal peristyle within the 12-metre fortress that encircles the religious complex, including the Temple of Amon, located at the south-east of the site and begun in the reign of Hatshepsut at the end of the 15th Century BC. Memnonium The Memnonium, a name used by visitors to the Valley of the Kings from 1750 to 1850, refers to a set of three royal buildings constructed during the New Kingdom: the Ramesseum, the Temple of Amenhotep III and the Temple of Sethi I. The draughtsmen and architects of Bonaparte's Institut, sent out on expedition across Upper Egypt from 1799 documented Thebes and the Valley of the Kings, even attempting to reconstruct some of the buildings on the basis of descriptions by Classical authors. The tomb of Ozymandias (one of the numerous names of Ramses II), in a very poor state, thus became the subject of very thorough study and an attempt to fill in its missing bits on the basis of the writings of Diodurus Siculus. This Greek historian of the Augustine period stayed in the valley of the Nile from 60-57 BC and his visit to the tomb of Ramses II is recounted in his monumental Bibliotheca Historica (Book I, XLVII-XLIX).At the same time, the experts also made extremely detailed studies and views of the Colossi of Memnon, all that remains of a huge memorial temple to Amenhotep III built on the road to the necropolis in the Valley of the Kings. These colossi were located at the entrance to the temple in front of a preliminary pylon made of brick. These two statues represent King Amenhotep III framed to the right by the great Royal Consort Tiy and to the left by the Queen Mother Mutemwiya. Hypogea and Biban el Moluk This plate is taken from a series of engravings of the hypogea in the Valley of the Kings (Biban el Moluk) in Thebes. Some are in color to show the vivid hues of the sarcophaguses and mysterious murals whose secret had yet to be broken by Jean-François Champollion. The draughtsmen of the Institut, including the famous Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire, sent by Napoleon to cover Upper Egypt in 1799, capture with élan the royal mummies and the artifacts that accompanied the dead in their journey to the netherworld: urns, furniture, weapons, idols and the mummies of numerous mammals and birds. Karnak This plate is from a set on the Great Temple at Karnak, built during the New Kingdom at the time of Ramses III. This enormous complex is divided into three parts and is dedicated to the Theban Triad of gods, Amun, Mut and Khonsu. Its sculptures, internal bas-reliefs and sunken reliefs on the external facades are intricately captured by the engineers of the Institut, while the architects worked out the complex groundplan of this edifice, which was divided into facades, colonnaded halls and sacral spaces reserved for the temple priests. The alley of the monumental sphinx which links the site to the Luxor site was also the subject of a plate by Lepère, an architect from the Institut who took part in the expedition across Upper Egypt. Dendera The experts executed views and drawings of the temples of Dendera (or Tentyra), a city in Upper Egypt 60km to the north of Luxor. They have captured, with an exceptional degree of graphic artistry, the thick, round nature of the sculpted reliefs of the great Temple of Hathor, built under the Ptolemies in the first half of the 1st century BC. They also produced interesting views of the neighboring temples as well as a selection of reliefs of the "Dendera Zodiac", a chapel dedicated to Osiris and located beneath the temple of Hathor. Its famous astronomical relief was discovered by the French General Desaix - stationed in Upper Egypt by Bonaparte from 1798 - and taken back to France in 1821 by Claude Lelorrain; it is now on display in the Louvre. Another astronomical and cosmological relief on the ceiling of the hypostyle hall of the Temple of Hathor is the subject of a magnificent plate by Jollois and Devilliers. This covers seven soffit coffers of the ceiling and is an immense allegorical image showing several levels of consciousness: that of cosmogony, the constellations and their effect on the Earth, the creation of Man, and the Nomes of Egypt, symbolized by 21 pairs of wings topped with the red crown of Lower Egypt and the white tiara of Upper Egypt. The Pyramids at Memphis The Giza Plateau, near Memphis, is home to three of the most famous Ancient Egyptian Pyramids, the tombs of Cheops, Khafre and Menkaure, Pharaohs of the 4th Dynasty (2620-2500 BC). The experts of the Institut, hurrying to Memphis, explored the plateau and made numerous views of these majestic pyramids, towering over inhabitants and mounted figures. They also made minutely detailed views of the epigraphs on the tombs adjacent to the pyramids, as well as views of the Sphinx of Gaza near the Pyramid of Khafre. Views of Alexandria A plate taken from a set of view of Alexandria as it was found by Napoleon's army in June 1798. Embarking in Toulon on the 14th May, his troops disembarked at Alexandria a month later and explored this port city before heading towards Cairo to take the capital.

        An Essay on the Principle of Population; or, a View of its Past and Present Effects on Human Happiness; with an Inquiry into our Prospects Respecting the Future Removal or Mitigation of the Evils which it Occasions. A New Edition, very much Enlarged.

      London: J. Johnson, 1803 - Quarto (280 × 220 mm). Contemporary black quarter calf, marbled boards, smooth spine in compartments separated by double rules gilt, titles gilt on red ground to second. First quarto edition and second edition overall; first published in 1798. "In 1803 Malthus published a greatly expanded second edition of the Essay, incorporating details of the population checks that had been in operation in many different countries and periods. Although nominally a second edition, it was regarded by Malthus as a substantially new work. He did not claim originality for the idea that population tends to outrun the food supply. In the preface to the second edition he stated that in writing the first edition he had deduced the principle of population from the writings of David Hume, Robert Wallace, Adam Smith, and Richard Price, but that in the intervening period he had become aware that much more had been published on the subject. He nevertheless believed that even more remained to be done, especially in describing the means by which populations are checked and in drawing out the practical implications of the principle of population. In the second edition, Malthus made clear what was only implicit in the first, that prudential restraint should, if humanly possible, be 'moral restraint'—that is, delayed marriage accompanied by strictly moral pre-marital behaviour, although he admitted that moral restraint would not be easy and that there would be occasional failures. Whereas in the first edition he had said that all the checks to population would involve either misery or vice, in the second edition he attempted to lighten this 'melancholy hue' (Essay on the Principle of Population, 1st edn, 1798, iv) and 'to soften some of the harshest conclusions of the first essay' (2nd edn, 1803, vii) by arguing that moral restraint, if supported by an education emphasizing the immorality of bringing children into the world without the means of supporting them, would tend to increase rather than diminish individual happiness" (ODNB).

        Recueil en manuscrit [sur l'histoire de Bonaparte et du Consulat].

      (vers 1803). ____ Matériaux pour servir à l'histoire du Consulat. Le rédacteur a rassemblé quantité de documents : des proclamations et des rapports officiels, des discours et des récits extraits de journaux comme le "Journal du soir, de politique et de littérature des frères Chaignieau", le "Portillon de Calais" ou "d'après différents journaux" ... Ses documents suivent pour l'essentiel l'histoire de Bonaparte de 1796 à 1802 : campagnes d'Italie, traité de paix de Campo-Formio, guerre avec l'Angleterre, campagne d'Egypte, seconde campagne de Bonaparte en Italie. On trouve très détaillés, en fin de volume les récits des conspirations et attentats contre Bonaparte. Il a été relié à la fin un imprimé de 57 pages : "Plaidoyer ... pour Joseph Arena, natif de Corse ... accusé d'avoir pris part à un complot tendant au meurtre du premier Consul, et condamné à la peine de mort..." Une note de bas de page, recouverte d'une bande de papier dit : "Ce plaidoyer m'a été donné par le C[itoy]en Dief-" Ces pièces ont été rassemblées à l'époque, probablement afin rédiger une histoire de Bonaparte, premier Consul. Les nombreuses ratures et renvois nous montrent qu'il s'agit d'un manuscrit original. Reliure un peu défraîchie mais solide. *-------*. In-8.

Recueil des grands prix d'architecture, et autres productions de cet art, couronnées en France, reduites, gravées et lavées par une Societé d'Architectes. Contents includes: manuscript half-title, title and table, 13 livraison each made up of 6 hand-coloured aquatint engravings printed on thick Holland paper for a total of 78 engravings.Tall folio, 530 x 365 mm, bound in contemporary green marbled paper covered boards, original front wrapper bound in. Preserved in a modern blue half morocco folding box. Paris: Detournelle, 1803.First Edition, Deluxe issue from the second series of the French Grand Prix d'Architecture. A fine series of architectural aquatints, tastefully hand coloured with china ink wash, light pink, blue, yellow and green watercolour. Subjects include: 1) Normand, "Colonne rostrale," 1791; 2) Dubut, "Grenier publique," 1797; 3) Moitte, "Arc de Triomphe," 1795; Famih, "Arc de Triomphe," 1801; 5) Moreau, "Colonne nationale,' 1800; 6) Vignon, "Tribute du paix," 1795; and others. The French Grand Prix was first approved for publication by l'Academie d'architecture in 1787 and exhibited a profound influence on contemporary European architects of the time, most notably Gilly and Schinkel. The work "may also suggest ideas to the contemporary architect. Indeed, it may not be gross an oversimplification to suggest that the work of Le Corbusier is still unconsciously based on some of these traditions, which are kept alive in France in spite of the changes in architectural idiom" (Roseneau, p. 21) Spine professionally restored, some marginal staining, overall a fine, fresh copy of a luxurious publication.PROVENANCE: Engineer Artium Geno followed by Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow with their bookplates on the front past-down.Roseneau, Architectural History Vol. 3 pp. 15.

One of the most interesting works on the development of the colonization of North America in the eighteenth century, since it is a genuine practical guide for new settlers, with provisions to solve all the problems that could arise for someone who would like to emigrate to Louisiana with the intention of settling there. In addition, he provided both suggestions for improving the management and administration of the businesses and services as they were operating, as well as reflections on the importance that would have to be given to the colonization of Louisiana as a pilot test for the improvement of French colonial policy and its administration. It also includes such tasty chapters as the description of the functioning of slavery - offering an extensive dictionary of Congolese language to facilitate its use - or the medicinal use of existing plants in the new territories. This approach to colonial exploitation probably had its origin in the fact that Baudry des Lozières, colonist in Santo Domingo, lost all his property with the rebellion of the Dominican slaves when, with the Revolution, the Convention abolished slavery in France and its colonies in 1794. Which made him a fervent antirevolutionary, anti-philosophers -those who he deemed to be the ultimate responsible for his ruin,  strong spirits whose eloquence is only directed to corrupt the people - and proslavery. And, precisely for writing from that place, we can read the actual operation of colonization, without sweetening or novelization. Something that reflects very well its content: Tome premier: Contenant la vie militaire du général Grondel, doyen des armées de France, qui commanda longtemps à la Louisiane, et honoré de cent dix ans de service; un Detail sur les productions les plus avantageuses, les plus extraordinaires de cette belle Colonie, et sur ses quartiers les plus fertiles et les plus lucratifs; de nouvelles Réflexions sur les Colonies en général, et le Régime nécessaire aux personnes des Colonies pendant la première année de leur arrivée.

        The Hard Bargain

      London: Published by H. Macklin, 1803. Mezzotint. In good condition. A fine impression of this beautiful print by Ward after George Morland, the master of genre painting."The Hard Bargain" was one of the most successful of William Ward's mezzotints of a Morland painting. Morland's extraordinary ability to convey in posture and expression is perfectly transmitted in Ward's print, in which we see the seller of a heifer making conciliatory gestures toward the prospective buyer, who is already half turned to leave and practically snarls at the seller. The atmosphere is tense, and we have the unpleasant sense that the seller is going to accept the minimal offer.George Morland (1763-1804) was one of the most successful genre painters of his time, creating, during his industrious career, some of England's most cherished paintings. At an early age Morland displayed his artistic genius, he learned to paint at three and exhibited his first work at the Royal Academy at the mere age of ten. He was a prodigious painter, producing more than 4000 paintings during the entirety of his career, and sometimes painting two or three works in a day. His beautiful idealistic scenes were a favorite source of inspiration for contemporary engravers, and as many as 250 separate engravings were done of his paintings during his lifetime. His brother-in-law, William Ward, engraved a great number of his paintings reproducing in print his endearing paintings of English country life. Ward's engravings after Morland are some of the most beautiful prints of the period; they combine fine technical skill and inspired artistic imagination to create enduring images that speak of the taste and beauty of the age.Le Blanc IV, p.177, no.118.

        Catalogue des Livres de la Bibliothèque de M. C. de La Serna Santander, Rédigé et mis en ordre par lui-même; avec des notes bibliographiques et littéraires; nouvellement corrigé et augmenté

      - Two engraved plates (one is folding & with eight images) & five folding woodcut plates of watermarks. Five vols. bound in four. 8vo, cont. paste-paper boards (occasional minor browning), flat spines gilt, red leather lettering pieces on spines. Brussels: [Privately Printed], 1803. The very rare privately printed catalogue, in its most complex state, of the vast and famous library of Carlos Antonio La Serna (1752-1813), bibliographer, historian of early printing, and "conservateur" at the Brussels Library. The main part of the library, the finest of the time in the Low Countries, was actually amassed by his uncle, Don Simon de Santander San Juan, former secretary of the Spanish King and an ardent book collector resident in Brussels. The collection passed to his nephew Carlos Antonio upon his death in 1791. Carlos Antonio, who had come from Spain about 1772, aided his uncle in forming the collection. Upon inheriting the collection, Carlos Antonio was forced due to family reasons to try to sell the library; a catalogue in 1792 was prepared. According to Michaud, La Serna sold the library to a Brussels collector, who proposed to make it available to the public, but the purchaser became insolvent after a few years and La Serna recovered possession of the collection. La Serna continued to acquire important books and MSS. After the Peace of Amiens, La Serna reissued the catalogue under his own name with additions in 1803, hoping to attract a wealthy purchaser amongst the new generation of important collectors at home and abroad. This reissue contained a number additional leaves or cancels (see below). However the library remained unsold until 1809, when Renouard acquired it for 60,000 francs. The great French bookseller offered it at auction in Paris in the same year in 67 sessions. Vol. I contains three additional leaves, one each inserted in quires B, F, and G. Unlike every other copy I know of, leaf E8 is present. Vol. II contains six additional leaves, one each inserted in quires A, B, F, P, S, and T. Vol. III contains an additional quire C of eight leaves. Vol. IV contains an extra leaf each in quires F and G and quire K is extended to comprise thirteen leaves. The fifth volume (here bound with Vol. IV) - the Supplément and which is very often missing - contains four pieces: "Observations sur les filigranes"; "Mémoire sur le premier Usage des signatures et des Chiffres, dans l'Art Typographique"; "Praefatio Historico-critica, in Veram et Genuinam Collectionem Veterum Canonum Ecclesiae Hispanae"; "A Divo Isidoro." They were all clearly issued separately and have been here gathered together with a general title-page. This volume contains a long folding sheet with eight engravings. Fine and handsome set. This set is priced throughout in a contemporary hand (this is most unusual). In excess of 6500 lots are listed. With thanks to Roland Folter for supplying details on the additional leaves. Early bookplate of Jacob Philippe Le Dru, doctor of medicine, in each volume and with his cipher on each title. ? Bigmore & Wyman, II, pp. 351-52-(1803 ed.)-"The superb collection here described includes works referring to every branch of human knowledge, besides many precious manuscripts. There are described a large number of incunabula." Gustave Brunet, Dictionnaire de Bibliologie Catholique, col. 595-"Réunion assez importante d'ouvrages curieux et d'éditions anciennes et rares." Taylor, Book Catalogues, p. 25-"This very accurate catalogue has a full author index and contains incidentally eighty-five catalogues of private libraries (rather few of them are Spanish).".

        Rhapsodieen über die Anwendung der psychischen Curmethode auf Geisteszerrüttungen.

      Halle, in der Curtschen Buchhandlung, 1803, 8, 504 pp., Pappband d.Zt. feines Exemplar aus dem Vorbesitz "Dr. Krukenberg, Rinteln". ERSTE AUSGABE dieser klassischen Schrift. Dieses Exemplar wurde bereichert von dem Ur-Ur Enkels Johann Christian Reils, Dr. Ernst Krukenberg (1889-1972) mit einer Liste von Schlagworten von einigen wenigen im Buch am Rand mit zartem Bleistift markierten Textstellen, er kommentiert die Liste: "Wissenschaftlich, wie auch rein familär - wie der Vorfahre dachte? - sind die angeführten Stellen mir interessant. Für eilige Leser hier notiert, für das Buch vielleicht nicht schön, für eilige Leser aber doch wohl nützlich! Als Ur-ur-Enkel von Reil. Dr. Krukenberg, Rinteln."Ein Meilenstein der Psychiatriegeschichte und ein aufrüttelnder Appell an die Humanität. Extrem selten, "...das berühmteste und anregendste Werk der älteren deutschen Psychiatrie." (Kraepelin). "...eine der sympathischsten Persönlichkeiten in der Geschichte der Medizin." (Diepgen). - Reil bemühte sich um die Verbesserung der Zustände in den Irrenanstalten und um die Etablierung der Psychiatrie als selbständige akademische Disziplin. Damit hat er zu einem großen Aufschwung in der Behandlung Geisteskranker beigetragen. Zu den von ihm empfohlenen Methoden gehören bereits psychotherapeutische Techniken, wie das Psychodrama, die Beschäftigungs- und die Schocktherapie.Johann Christian Reil (1759-1813) war seit 1787 Professor der Medizin in Halle. 1810 übernahm er den Lehrstuhl für klinische Medizin an der Berliner Universität. Er war einer der Hauptvertreter des "Vitalismus." Bahnbrechend waren seine hirnanatomischen Arbeiten, besonders über das Kleinhirn und die Nerven. Reil war vertrauter Freund von Henriette und Marcus Hertz und Arzt von J. W. von Goethe.In Germany, perhaps the most conspicuous early work in linking physiology with psychiatry is associated with the name of J. C. Reil whose anatomical studies of the brain are remembered eponymously in the "Island of Reil". With the present book, one of the famous texts in the history of the treatment of mental diseases, Reil radically reformed psychiatry. The methods he advocated (psychotherapy, psychodrama, occupational therapy, shock treatment) were only taken up again in our own time. He effected the elevation of psychiatry to the position of an independent branch of study at the universities.Garrison calls Reil "the founder of modern psychiatry" and in the words of Zilboorg & Henry "there is no doubt that we should consider Reil as one of the founders of psychiatry as a specialty." " The present treatise is one of the earliest systematic works on psychotherapy. In it Reil sets forth principles and different techniques of therapy. Although he did not forma-late a comprehensive theory of personality, he recognized the necessity of understanding the healthy personality before the pathological personality could be understood. He believed that mental illness is a psychological phenomenon which requires psychological methods of treatment and was convinced of the dose relationship between mind and body.
