        Yosan Hiroku [Secret Notes on the Cultivation of Silkworms]

      Many fine single & double-page illus. 30; 39; 28 folding leaves. Three vols. Large 8vo, orig. blue silk covered wrappers, block-printed title labels on upper covers, new stitching. Kyoto, Edo, & Osaka: 1803. First edition of one of the most important Japanese works on sericulture and one of the first Japanese technological works to be translated into a European language. A copy of the present work had been smuggled by Siebold from Nagasaki to Holland where it was translated by Hoffmann (1805-78), a Dutch government language specialist who had a thorough knowledge of Japanese. The 1848 translation (Yo san fi rok. L'Art d'Élever les Vers à Soie au Japon) was edited by Matthieu Bonafou (1793-1852), a member of a leading silk manufacturing family in Lyons and Turin, and director of the botanical gardens of Turin. As a result of the silkworm plague which was then damaging the European silk industry, he was deeply involved in the improvement of the production of different varieties of both silkworms and mulberry trees. Bonafou was interested in Chinese and Japanese methods of sericulture which led him to engage in translating and editing a series of relevant classic Chinese and Japanese texts for comparative purposes. The present work was deeply influential in Japan as well. It summarized many of the most advanced techniques - both Chinese and Japanese - in use in various regions of the country. Kamigaki presented his information in a succinct and straightforward style with attractive illustrations which made it readily comprehensible to ordinary farmers. This book is very handsomely printed and illustrated. The woodcuts depict all the steps in sericulture: incubation and rearing of worms, cocoons, selection of eggs for reproduction, techniques of keeping rooms warm enough to enhance hatching, the mulberry tree and its cultivation, feeding the silkworms with mulberry leaves, tools, making the silk, manufacturing fabrics, looms, etc., etc. Kamigaki (1753-1808), was a sericulturist and researcher who travelled throughout Japan to study the subject. A lovely set of this handsome work, unusually bound in silk, which suggests it is a deluxe copy. Preserved in an early wooden box. Minor worming to covers and a few leaves. ❧ See Claudio Zanier's quite wonderful on-line article "Overcoming the Barrier of the Alps. Silk and Intellectual Legacy of Mathieu Bonafous between Lyon and Turin." Andrew O. Urevbu, "Culture and Technology. A Study on the 1997 Theme," on-line resource, p. 36-39.

        The Art of Preserving Health.

      London: printed for T. Cadell, Jun. and W. Davies,, 1803. A New Edition. To which is prefixed A Critical Essay on the Poem by J. Aikin. Octavo (154 x 95 mm). Contemporary streaked calf, sensitively rebacked to style preserving original morocco title label, gilt roll to borders of boards and to board edges, marbled endpapers, blue speckled edges. Four engraved plates by Stothard. Some rubbing to the extremities, excellent condition. The copy of Anne Isabella, Lady Byron (née Milbanke), with her autograph ownership inscription to the first blank, with a slip pasted over it bearing her married name in Lord Byron's hand. John Armstrong (1709-79) was a Scottish-born physician and the author of several poems and essay. The Art of Preserving Health, his best known work, is considered one of the best didactic poems in the language ("those who value austere imagination and weighty diction cannot afford to neglect Armstrong's masterpiece" DNB), and was first printed in 1744. This copy, with the half-title, is a reprint of the new edition of 1795, which was the first to include the Stothard Plates and critical essay by Aikin. The association is a fascinating one in the light of Lord Byron's noted hypochondria, and Milbanke's concerns for his physical and mental health. It is also a keen demonstration of the combative relationship that typified their brief marriage, in that it was the husband's hand, and not the wife's, that overlaid her married name - especially when she was so sensitive about her complex lineage. A later pencil annotation to the front free endpaper verso verifies Milbanke and Byron's inscriptions, and notes that the book was given "by Lady Noel-Byron" to Sophia Coussmaker, 22nd Baroness de Clifford (1791-1874).

        Account of the changes that have happened, during the last 25 years, in the relative situation of double stars; with an investigation of the cause to which they are owing. In Philosophical Transations, Pages 339-382

      London: W. Bulmer and Co. (printers), 1803. First Edition. Original Wraps. Quarto. Offered is an entire issue of the Philosophical Transactions, 1803, Part II. Original blue wrappers uncut. "Perhaps Herschel's most notable discovery was that pairs of stars in close continuity-the binary stars-move around each other according to the laws of gravitation; thus indicating the universality of natural law." (PMM) "In 1802 Herschel began to reexamine his doubles, and he found that on several of them the two stars had altered position relative to each other in a way that showed they were companions held together by attractive powers. After Herschel's death it was confirmed that the power was, as expected, gravitational attraction; the first proof that gravitation attraction extended beyond the solar system." (DSB) Herschel discovered altogether over 800 double stars, measuring their angles of position by means of the revolving wire micrometer invented for the purpose.

Second and last edition of a horticultural manual, first published in 1803 with the subtitle, Méthode sure et facile, pour apprendre à cultivar . In the preface, Poinsot explains that he wanted to write a book on horticulture that would be of interest to both beginning and professional gardeners and that would cover all sorts of plants, gardens and terrains. Accordingly, the work can be divided into six sections, each preceded by a full-page engraving, which deal successively with the fruit garden, vegetable garden, English (that is landscape) garden, flower garden, orangeries, and trees that are suitable for greenhouses. With the exception of the flower garden, Poinsot opens each section with a general introduction, before giving an alphabetical list of fruit trees, vegetables, trees, flowers, and other plants which may be planted in the different gardens. He gives much practical information on each species. With a corrosion spot on p. 16, the engraved plate facing p. 205 (vol. II) skilfully repaired, and some marginal tears.

        Gli Aeronauti Francesco Zambeccari Bolognese Pasquale Andreoli Anconitano E Gaetano Grassetti Romano Caduti Sull Adriatico E Ricuperati Giorno 8 Ottobre Anno. 1803.

      1803 - Acquaforte, 1803, firmata e datata in basso al centro. Bellisisma prova, con margini, in ottimo sttao di conservazione. Il naufragio di Zambeccari e dei suoi compagni in una stampa d'epoca, incisa da Pietro Leone Bombelli a Roma. Rara. Francesco Zambeccari è senza dubbio uno dei più importanti protagonisti della storia dell'aerostatica di ogni tempo e di ogni Paese. La sua maggiore realizzazione è il pallone "a doppia camera" con funzionamento misto ad aria calda e idrogeno oggi conosciuto come "pallone Rozier", ma che, come vedremo più avanti, andrebbe invece più propriamente chiamato "pallone Zambeccari". Ai suoi studi ed esperimenti si devono poi alcuni strumenti di misura (un dinamometro per misurare la tensione delle corde e la "stadera anemometrica" per valutare l'intensità delle correnti atmosferiche), nonché il cavo stabilizzatore, in seguito denominato "guiderope" (cavo pilota), impiegato fino ai giorni nostri. Zambeccari nasce nel 1752 a Bologna in una ricca famiglia patrizia e dopo aver ricevuto un'educazione ed un'istruzione molto accurate si orienta verso gli studi scientifici. Insofferente al conformismo delle tradizioni nobiliari si arruola nel corpo reale delle guardie in Spagna e poi nella marina spagnola, dove viene impegnato prima nella lotta ai pirati nel Mediterraneo e poi nella difesa dei domini d'oltremare negli anni della rivoluzione americana. Costretto a lasciare L'Avana per essersi messo in contrasto con l'Inquisizione, si trasferisce prima a Parigi e poi a Londra proprio nel periodo dei primi esperimenti di volo in pallone. E' così che nasce la sua passione per l'aerostatica che lo porterà, da degno esponente del "secolo dei lumi", a diventare inventore e aeronauta. Il suo primo esperimento ha luogo nella capitale britannica il 25 novembre 1783 (solo quattro giorni dopo il primo volo umano), quando Zambeccari fa decollare un pallone non pilotato dall'Artillery Ground. Il buon esito di queste sue prime esperienze lo convince in breve a tentare il volo umano. A Londra Zambeccari conosce un altro italiano, Vincenzo Lunardi, anch'egli intenzionato a replicare le imprese aerostatiche compiute in Francia dai Montgolfier e da Charles. I due italiani decidono di collaborare e Zambeccari partecipa attivamente alla progettazione del pallone di Lunardi, ma il sodalizio non ha una lunga durata. In una lettera antecedente al primo volo umano compiuto in terra inglese da Lunardi il 15 settembre 1784, Zambeccari si rammarica della sua eccessiva cautela che finisce per privarlo della fama che andrà tutta al connazionale: "Ecco dunque che il mio errore è stato di essere prudente non dovendolo essere". Zambeccari riesce comunque a realizzare il suo volo a Londra, insieme all'ammiraglio Vernon, il 22 marzo 1785, circa sei mesi dopo quello di Lunardi, superando di poco la quota di 3000 metri, un risultato eccezionale per quei tempi. Nel 1787 Zambeccari si trasferisce a San Pietroburgo ed entra a far parte della marina imperiale russa. In seguito ad un naufragio viene fatto prigioniero dai turchi e detenuto a Costantinopoli per oltre due anni. Durante la prigionia ha tuttavia modo di approfondire gli studi sul volo in seguito ai quali, all'inizio dell'Ottocento, pubblica due saggi sulle macchine aerostatiche. Dopo essere stato liberato fa ritorno a Bologna e, contro la volontà paterna, sposa Diamante Negrini. Ormai in contrasto con la famiglia, per vivere si dedica all'attività di commerciante fino alla morte del padre quando eredita le proprietà fondiarie della famiglia delle quali però si disinteressa preferendo dedicarsi ai suoi studi e alla progettazione di un nuovo aerostato per la realizzazione del quale investe somme ingenti, sia proprie che provenienti da prestiti e sussidi. Il 7 e 8 ottobre 1803 Zambeccari compie un'epica impresa insieme ai suoi allievi Pasquale Andreoli e Gaetano Grassetti. Il volo avrebbe dovuto svolgersi il 4 settembre, come riportato da alcune fonti per le quali mancano però ulteriori risco

        Tavole di ragguaglio fra le nuove e le antiche misure e fra i nuovi e gli antichi pesi della Repubblica Italiana pubblicate per ordine del Governo in esecuzione dell'articolo XIII della legge 27 Ottobre 1803. Anno II.

      1803. Milano, 1803, Anno II. Si vendono dallo Stampatore Nazionale Veladini, e dagli incaricati della vendita del Bollettino delle leggi, al prezzo di L. 12 Milanesi. In folio (cm. 31,6); cartoncino colorato coevo con fascetta di rinforzo al dorso; pp. XVI, 346, (2). Tracce di tarlo al margine bianco superiore all'ultima carta con "errata". Bella copia con barbe stampata su carta pesante. Milano, li 31 Ottobre 1803 anno II, Il Governo proclama Legge della Repubblica il seguente decreto del Corpo Legislativo, ed ordina che sia munito del Sigillo dello Stato, stampato, pubblicato ed eseguito. MELZI Vice Presidente. Il Consigliere Segretario di Stato Luigi VACCARI. I membri della Commissione Pesi e Misure: Barnaba Oriani, Carlo Innocenzo Isimbardi, Paolo Brambilla. Il progetto di stabilire una unità naturale delle misure e dei pesi, che portò alla scelta del metro come unità fondamentale, era stato avviato dall'Académie des Sciences di Parigi negli anni 1784, 1789, e sostenuto dalla proposta presentata da Talleyrand alla Assemblea Nazionale francese nel 1790. Si trattava non solo di unificare le misure all'interno di uno stato, ma di determinare un misura lineare di base per tutte le altre: di superficie, capacità, peso, che fosse anche universale e riproducibile. Alla iniziale proposta di Condorcet di adottare come unità di misura la lunghezza del pendolo che batte il secondo alla latitudine di 45°, la Commissione per i pesi e misure, cui appartennero anche Lagrange, Lavoisier, Laplace e Monge, sostituì quella di una frazione del meridiano terrestre: la decimilionesima parte del quarto di meridiano (1791). Ulteriori semplificazioni e varianti nei nomi si trovano nella nuova legge sui pesi e le misure (n. 83) emanata durante la Repubblica Italiana (27 ottobre 1803), dopo il riassetto dei territori conquistati dalle armate napoleoniche: il braccio diventa metro, le cui dieci, cento, mille parti uguali sono ora rispettivamente: palmi, diti, atomi. Moltiplicando successivamente per cento si passa dal metro quadrato alla tavola e quindi alla tornatura; le analoghe misure di volume si ottengono aggiungendo il termine cubo alla corrispondente misura lineare; le medesime misure di capacità sono usate per i solidi e per i liquidi: la soma, decima parte del metro cubo, divisa successivamente in dieci mine, cento pinte, mille coppi; le unità di peso restano le libbre, suddivise successivamente in once, grossi, denari, grani, e i cui multipli di dieci diventano rubbi, centinaj. Di grande importanza era l'obbligo di insegnare nelle scuole elementari il calcolo decimale e il nuovo sistema. Il processo di adeguamento fu accompagnato dalla pubblicazione di appositi manuali e testi scolastici. Axs

        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, A Paris 1803, In-8 (12,5x20cm), (4) xxiij, 472pp., relié. - edizione - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] 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. NB : Cet ouvrage est disponible à la librairie sur demande sous 48 heures.

        Group of Papers of John Rowe Parker, of Boston, Massachusetts, early American music editor and instrument dealer, publisher of the "Euterpeiad, or Musical Intelligencer and Ladies Gazette" - the first American musical periodical, 1803-1823

      - 27 items, 39 manuscript pp., dated 6 May 1803 to 18 June 1823. The papers in this collection document the business of John Rowe Parker, early American musical tastemaker. The collection is useful for scholars and researchers of early American music due to the detailed invoices it contains, which list nearly 700 pieces of music by title. As most pre 1823 sheet music is not dated, the dated invoices in this collection provide a valuable record of the titles that were available at a given time and provide clues to their date of publication. Description of Collection 1. Itemized invoice for funeral services provided by Geo. Ellison, signed by Ellison, for the funeral of Catherine Brigden Parker, the first wife of John Rowe Parker, dated 6 May 1803. 2. "To Greenland & Norris," itemized invoice for books and supplies, signed by Greenland, 1 pp., dated 20 July 1803. 3. "To John & Adam Geib," New York, New York, itemized invoice for musical instruments & related goods, 2 pp., dated 23 Aug 1817. 4. Letter of John Rowe Parker to James H. Swindells of Richmond, Virginia, 1 pp., dated 30 March 1818, concerns supplying music instruments and books, including instructions about setting up an organ. 5. "To Charles Tracy," itemized invoice for musical instruments and shipping charges, dated 4 May 1818. 6. Group of 21 itemized invoices for sheet music purchased by John Rowe Parker from the following publishers: George E. Blake, 6 invoices, dated 28 January 1817 to 11 July 1820; A. Bacon, 1 invoice, dated 17 August 1817; William DuBois, 4 invoices, dated 20 August 1817 to 26 May 1818; Joseph Wilson, 3 invoices, dated 22 August 1817 to 3 September 1817, one undated; George Willig, 2 invoices, one dated 20 October 1818, the other undated; Edward Riley, 2 invoices, one dated 20 October 1818, other undated; and Benjamin Carr, 3 invoices, dated 20 September 1820 to 6 October 1821, one undated. 7. Unsigned letter, 3 pp., dated 18 June 1823, written to unknown person (possibly John Rowe Parker), posted from Augusta, presumably Georgia. Mentions that Thomas Jordan & Company, were to be the general agents for John Rowe Parker's "The Euterpeiad" publication, and were to help collect subscriptions. John Rowe Parker (1777-1844) John Rowe Parker is seen today as an early American champion of the art of music. While he was an amateur in the profession, he played an important role in disseminating music and musical knowledge throughout the country. As proprietor of the well-stocked Franklin Music Warehouse in Boston from 1817 to 1823, he furnished New England with the latest musical paraphernalia from Europe. His literary contribution was far more reaching, as his bimonthly column in the Euterpeiad consisted largely of reviews of local musical events. The Euterpeiad was distributed from Montreal, Canada, to Augusta, Georgia. Despite its relatively brief lifespan, The Euterpeiad exerted a considerable influence on the development of music in America, and in the process provided posterity with an invaluable cache of facts, records, and philosophies pertaining to a period that is otherwise poorly documented." John Rowe Parker was born 24 October 1777. He was the eldest of thirteen children born to the Rev. Samuel Parker (1744-1804), rector of Trinity Church in Boston, Massachusetts, and his wife Ann (d.1844). At the time of the American Revolution, the Rev. Parker was the only Episcopal clergyman in New England to side with the Americans and remain at his post. The Rev. Parker's father was a Superior Court Judge. Matthew S. Parker (1780-1865), brother of John Rowe Parker, was the first secretary of Boston's Handel and Haydn Society and the president of Oriental Bank in the 1830s. Another brother, Richard Green Parker (1798-1869), was a noted educator and author. John Rowe Parker was named for an admiring parishioner of his father, a prominent Boston merchant, John Rowe (1715-177

        De l'opéra en l'an XII (.).

      - Paris, De l'Imprimerie de Ballard, an XII - 1803. In-4, demi-veau tabac à coins, dos janséniste à 4 nerfs (rel. fin XIXe), (1) f. bl., (4) p. de titre et "avant-propos", 94 p., (1) f. bl. Edition originale et unique. Gouffre financier, doté d’un personnel dont Napoléon affirmait qu’il était composé des 500 employés les plus indisciplinés de France, l’Opéra de Paris constitua, sous le Consulat et l’Empire, un problème ingérable pour ses différents directeurs comme pour le gouvernement. D’abord agent comptable de l’Opéra à partir de 1802, Bonet de Treiches en devint directeur de 1803 à 1807. Il soumet dans ce mémoire une analyse financière, sociale et artistique très complète "des causes et vices qui s’opposent à la marche et aux progrès de ce grand établissement". Bilan financier illustré de nombreuses données et tableaux chiffrés - Analyse des dysfonctionnements: insubordination des artistes, problème de personnel - Les activités artistiques: répertoire, chant, danse, pantomime - Le fonctionnement: orchestre, décorations, machines, costumes, etc. L’auteur soumet, en fin, un plan de réformes détaillées dont un projet pour la construction d’une nouvelle salle d’opéra à Paris. Conventionnel modéré pendant la Révolution, Bonet de Treiches (1757-1828) siégea au Conseil des Cinq-Cents, puis fut nommé commissaire du Gouvernement du Théâtre de la République et des Arts avant de rentrer en fonction à l’Opéra de Paris. (Cf. Jean Gourret, 'Ces hommes qui ont fait l'Opéra', Albatros, 1984, p. 102 et s.). (Fétis, ‘Biographie universelle des musiciens’, II, 19. Fétis, ‘Catalogue’, n° 3850. Tourneux, 18276). Rare.

The second Maroon war of 1795 was an eight month struggle with the British troops and militia outnumbering the maroons by ten to one and assisted by over a hundred hounds and their handlers brought in from Cuba.

He was the eldest of thirteen children born to the Rev. Samuel Parker (1744-1804), rector of Trinity Church in Boston, Massachusetts, and his wife Ann (d.1844).

Another brother, Richard Green Parker (1798-1869), was a noted educator and author. John Rowe Parker was named for an admiring parishioner of his father, a prominent Boston merchant, John Rowe (1715-1779). Since John Rowe was childless, he left a legacy to the Rev. Parker as well as his namesake.He was a merchant, music dealer, and publisher active in Boston. He is said to have made two trips to England, one in 1802 with his first wife Catherine Brigden, the other in 1815. After his return from England in 1803, his wife Catherine died. The couple had no children having only been married briefly. An extensive invoice of George Ellison for her funeral services is listed in this collection. After Catherine's death, Parker married, a second time, a year later to Mary Hamilton, also of Boston. The couple had three children: Samuel, Jonathan, and Mary.Parker's first business venture was as a general merchant, handling quilts, counterpanes, carpeting, knives, forks, carvers, coffee pots, candlesticks, snuffers, etc. By 1806, his business became "Parker and Poor," with Parker located in Boston, and Poor located in Scotland. Poor relocated to Baltimore and the business dissolved, with both men forming other companies, Parker remaining in Boston, Poor relocated to Baltimore.Parker's second wife died about the year 1812. In 1823, he is found in New London, Connecticut, where he had married a third time, to Jane Parker, the daughter of a leading family that was interrelated to the Winthrops. By 1814 Parker is found importing pianos. He opened a music store, Franklin Music Warehouse, in Boston in 1817 where he sold pianos, organs, other musical instruments, sheet music and related merchandise.While not a musician himself, Parker was active in the promotion of music in the United States in the early nineteenth-century. From April 1820 until March 1823, he was editor and publisher of the "Euterpeiad, or Musical Intelligencer and Ladies Gazette" - the first American musical periodical. The publication quickly became one of the major early American music periodicals. Working out of the Music Warehouse near Faneuil Hall, he published the periodical, sold pianos, organs and other musical instruments by catalog, and became the first large distributor of "fashionable" (secular) American music. The Euterpiad ceased publication in 1823, and Parker left the music business to become an importer in 1824. After the Euterpeiad ceased publication, Parker collected articles from the Euterpeiad in a book, entitled: A Musical Biography: or Sketches of the Lives and Writings of Eminent Musical Characters, published in 1824. This volume ranks as the first biographical musical dictionary published in the United States. The book furnished American readers with biographical sketches of thirty-four foreign and native musicians, as well as eight brief essays on various musical topics.Later in life, Parker wrote four books on a proposed nation-wide communication system of semaphoric signals for marine vessels. It is not a system that he founded, but rather helped refine. John Rowe Parker died on 29 December 1844, a little more than a week before his mother, Agnes Parker died.The University of Pennsylvania holds an extensive collection of letters written to Parker, used by scholars as an "index to early 19th Century American musical taste." Another collection of Parker material is located at the University of Rochester's Sibley Music Library.Musicians, publishers, and musical instrument makers represented in this collection include George E. Blake, George Willig, A. Bacon, Benjamin Carr, Edward Riley, William DuBois, Joseph Willson, J.A. and W. Geib, James H. Swindells. References:John Rowe Parker and a Musical Biography, by John A.

        Poésies Depuis Madame de Surville, poëte françois du XVe siècle; Publiées par Ch. Vanderbourg

      Heinricks 1803 - Paris, Heinricks, 1803 In-8 (21,6cm x 13,8cm) de (2)-CXXIV-260pp. Page de titre gravée en couleurs, 10 illustrations hors-texte en couleurs, en-tête & cul-de-lampe en noir gravés par Debret. 4 pages de partitions gravées. Edition originale. Plein veau brique, dos lisse, auteur, titre, lieu, date & relieur frappés or, tête dorée, long décor composé d'un fer à froid avec poinçons dorés répété 13 fois dans un encadrement à l'or, plats décorés d'une roulette à froid avec encadrement doré et de plaques composées d'une rosace centrale, de quatre rosaces aux coins et de six petites en complément, le tout au sein d'un double encadrement à l'or, coiffes et coupes ornées de roulettes dorées, contre-plats en partie bordés de même veau et décorés d'une dentelle dorée. (Ch. Samblanx) 1er tirage et édition originale de la plus grande rareté de ces vers apocryphes attribuées à Clotilde de Surville, poétesse française morte en 1498, mais dont on a toujours soupçonné Joseph-Etienne de Surville (1755-1798) d'être le véritable auteur. L'édition présente en tête une longue préface, plus de 120 pages, dans laquelle Vanderbourg fait l'historique des manuscrits et tente de prévenir les soupçons que les lecteurs pouvaient avoir sur l'identité de l'auteur. Malgré cela de nombreuses voix s'élevèrent dès la parution du recueil pour dénoncer une supercherie littéraire, l'ouvrage eut toutefois un grand succès. Bel exemplaire, reliure en bel état, coiffes, coins et mors légèrement frottés; intérieur frais, un léger report de la dentelle des contre-plats sur les pages de garde sans incidence.

      1803. 27 items, 39 manuscript pp., dated 6 May 1803 to 18 June 1823.The papers in this collection document the business of John Rowe Parker, early American musical tastemaker. The collection is useful for scholars and researchers of early American music due to the detailed invoices it contains, which list nearly 700 pieces of music by title. As most pre 1823 sheet music is not dated, the dated invoices in this collection provide a valuable record of the titles that were available at a given time and provide clues to their date of publication.Description of Collection1. Itemized invoice for funeral services provided by Geo. Ellison, signed by Ellison, for the funeral of Catherine Brigden Parker, the first wife of John Rowe Parker, dated 6 May 1803.2. "To Greenland & Norris," itemized invoice for books and supplies, signed by Greenland, 1 pp., dated 20 July 1803.3. "To John & Adam Geib," New York, New York, itemized invoice for musical instruments & related goods, 2 pp., dated 23 Aug 1817.4. Letter of John Rowe Parker to James H. Swindells of Richmond, Virginia, 1 pp., dated 30 March 1818, concerns supplying music instruments and books, including instructions about setting up an organ.5. "To Charles Tracy," itemized invoice for musical instruments and shipping charges, dated 4 May 1818.6. Group of 21 itemized invoices for sheet music purchased by John Rowe Parker from the following publishers: George E. Blake, 6 invoices, dated 28 January 1817 to 11 July 1820; A. Bacon, 1 invoice, dated 17 August 1817; William DuBois, 4 invoices, dated 20 August 1817 to 26 May 1818; Joseph Wilson, 3 invoices, dated 22 August 1817 to 3 September 1817, one undated; George Willig, 2 invoices, one dated 20 October 1818, the other undated; Edward Riley, 2 invoices, one dated 20 October 1818, other undated; and Benjamin Carr, 3 invoices, dated 20 September 1820 to 6 October 1821, one undated.7. Unsigned letter, 3 pp., dated 18 June 1823, written to unknown person (possibly John Rowe Parker), posted from Augusta, presumably Georgia. Mentions that Thomas Jordan & Company, were to be the general agents for John Rowe Parker's "The Euterpeiad" publication, and were to help collect subscriptions.John Rowe Parker (1777-1844)John Rowe Parker is seen today as an early American champion of the art of music. While he was an amateur in the profession, he played an important role in disseminating music and musical knowledge throughout the country. As proprietor of the well-stocked Franklin Music Warehouse in Boston from 1817 to 1823, he furnished New England with the latest musical paraphernalia from Europe. His literary contribution was far more reaching, as his bimonthly column in the Euterpeiad consisted largely of reviews of local musical events. The Euterpeiad was distributed from Montreal, Canada, to Augusta, Georgia. Despite its relatively brief lifespan, The Euterpeiad exerted a considerable influence on the development of music in America, and in the process provided posterity with an invaluable cache of facts, records, and philosophies pertaining to a period that is otherwise poorly documented."John Rowe Parker was born 24 October 1777. He was the eldest of thirteen children born to the Rev. Samuel Parker (1744-1804), rector of Trinity Church in Boston, Massachusetts, and his wife Ann (d.1844). At the time of the American Revolution, the Rev. Parker was the only Episcopal clergyman in New England to side with the Americans and remain at his post. The Rev. Parker's father was a Superior Court Judge. Matthew S. Parker (1780-1865), brother of John Rowe Parker, was the first secretary of Boston's Handel and Haydn Society and the president of Oriental Bank in the 1830s. Another brother, Richard Green Parker (1798-1869), was a noted educator and author. John Rowe Parker was named for an admiring parishioner of his father, a prominent Boston merchant, John Rowe (1715-1779). Since John Rowe was childless, he left a legacy to the Rev. Parker as well as his namesake.He was a merchant, music dealer, and publisher active in Boston. He is said to have made two trips to England, one in 1802 with his first wife Catherine Brigden, the other in 1815. After his return from England in 1803, his wife Catherine died. The couple had no children having only been married briefly. An extensive invoice of George Ellison for her funeral services is listed in this collection. After Catherine's death, Parker married, a second time, a year later to Mary Hamilton, also of Boston. The couple had three children: Samuel, Jonathan, and Mary.Parker's first business venture was as a general merchant, handling quilts, counterpanes, carpeting, knives, forks, carvers, coffee pots, candlesticks, snuffers, etc. By 1806, his business became "Parker and Poor," with Parker located in Boston, and Poor located in Scotland. Poor relocated to Baltimore and the business dissolved, with both men forming other companies, Parker remaining in Boston, Poor relocated to Baltimore.Parker's second wife died about the year 1812. In 1823, he is found in New London, Connecticut, where he had married a third time, to Jane Parker, the daughter of a leading family that was interrelated to the Winthrops. By 1814 Parker is found importing pianos. He opened a music store, Franklin Music Warehouse, in Boston in 1817 where he sold pianos, organs, other musical instruments, sheet music and related merchandise.While not a musician himself, Parker was active in the promotion of music in the United States in the early nineteenth-century. From April 1820 until March 1823, he was editor and publisher of the "Euterpeiad, or Musical Intelligencer and Ladies Gazette" - the first American musical periodical. The publication quickly became one of the major early American music periodicals. Working out of the Music Warehouse near Faneuil Hall, he published the periodical, sold pianos, organs and other musical instruments by catalog, and became the first large distributor of "fashionable" (secular) American music. The Euterpiad ceased publication in 1823, and Parker left the music business to become an importer in 1824. After the Euterpeiad ceased publication, Parker collected articles from the Euterpeiad in a book, entitled: A Musical Biography: or Sketches of the Lives and Writings of Eminent Musical Characters, published in 1824. This volume ranks as the first biographical musical dictionary published in the United States. The book furnished American readers with biographical sketches of thirty-four foreign and native musicians, as well as eight brief essays on various musical topics.Later in life, Parker wrote four books on a proposed nation-wide communication system of semaphoric signals for marine vessels. It is not a system that he founded, but rather helped refine. John Rowe Parker died on 29 December 1844, a little more than a week before his mother, Agnes Parker died.The University of Pennsylvania holds an extensive collection of letters written to Parker, used by scholars as an "index to early 19th Century American musical taste." Another collection of Parker material is located at the University of Rochester's Sibley Music Library.Musicians, publishers, and musical instrument makers represented in this collection include George E. Blake, George Willig, A. Bacon, Benjamin Carr, Edward Riley, William DuBois, Joseph Willson, J.A. and W. Geib, James H. Swindells.References:John Rowe Parker and a Musical Biography, by John A.

Der Fleischextrakt wurde nach dem deutschen Chemiker Justus von Liebig (1803/1873) benannt. Die ersten Liebigbilder erschienen um 1875 in Paris, als die Liebig Extract dort ein eigenes Werbebüro einrichtete. Ihre direkten Vorläufer sind sogenannte Stuhlbilder (ab 1874), kleine bunt bedruckte Quittungskärtchen mit dezentem Werbeaufdruck, die man erhielt, wenn man in den Pariser Parks einen gepachteten Stuhl oder eine Bank benutzte. Die frühesten Liebigbilder wurden zwar als Serien zu 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12 und in einem Fall zu 24 Bildern gedruckt, aber zumeist einzeln abgegeben. Die geschlossene Abgabe ganzer Serien begann vermutlich ab 1880. Nun bestand eine Serie fast immer aus 6 Bildern im Format 110 x 70 mm. Bis etwa 1930 durfte der weiße gläserne Extrakttopf mit dem Schriftzug Liebigs auf den Bildern nicht fehlen (aus Wikipedia). +++ 27,5 x 27,2 Cm, 1,8 kg. +++ Stichwörter: Liebigbilder Sammelbilder- Album Reklamekunst Sammeln Ephemera Versand D: 5,50 EUR
