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. Well-preserved copy of a horticultural manual.

        Cedid Atlas Tercumesi [ New Atlas, translated ]

      Uksudar ( Istanbul) Tabhane-i Humayun press 1803 - Folio. Engr., illustr. Title page, 79 pp. 1 celestial chart and 24 engraved hand-colored maps. Modern calf fully gilt. The first published atlas in the Muslim world, printed and published in 1803 in Istanbul, then the capital of the Ottoman Empire. The full title name of the atlas reads as Cedid Atlas Tercümesi (meaning, literally, «A Translation of a New Atlas»). The Cedid Atlas includes a monochrome celestial chart and 24 hand-coloured copper engraved maps of various parts of the world; the celestial chart and maps measure at least (53 cm by 72 cm) and all the maps are actually adaptations of William Faden’s General Atlas. The maps are preceded by a (1+79) page-long treatise of geography, «Ucalet-ül Cografiye» by Mahmud Raif Efendi and a title page. The «Ucalet-ül Cografiye» of Mahmud Raif Efendi was printed one year later, in 1804, and bound together with the atlas. The project was meant to be a prestige project for the Ottoman Palace and it had the seal of approval of the then Sultan-Sultan Selim III. The Plates were made in Vienna, The maps were printed at the Engineer’s School Printing Press. Only 50 copies of this atlas (measuring 36 cm x 53 cm) were printed at the press. A copy was presented to Selim III; several copies were also presented to the high-ranking officials of the Empire, some were reserved for the library of Muhendishane (military engineering school of the time), and the remaining were reserved for sale. However, during the Alemdar Vakas, an uprising of the janissaries in Istanbul during November 15–18, 1808, a fire at the warehouse of the press destroyed an unknown number of the copies reserved for sale. Based on several estimates and accounting for the single maps (torn-out from bound volumes of the atlas) sold or being sold worldwide, it is believed that a maximum of 20 complete examples could be present in libraries or in private collections whereas some sources suggest that there exist only 10 complete and intact copies in the world. As such, it is one of the rarest printed atlases of historical value. The only copy to appear at auction recently sold for USD 118,750 (Swann Galleries NY, 26 May 2016, lot 199).

        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

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

        Cours de DUPUYTREN - MANUSCRIT ]. Cahier d'anatomie pathologique. 2 manuscrits : Suite d'anatomie pathologique, leçons du 12 au 27 floréal XI (2-17 mai 1803) et 5e cahier du cours d'anatomie pathologique.

      1803 - 2 cahiers de format pet. in-4 (23 x 18 et 20 x 16 cm), de 45 pages manuscrites (et 1 p. blanche) et 61 pages manuscrites (et 29 pp. blanches), avec environ 22/25 lignes par page, bien conservés, d'écriture assez claire et d'épaisseur moyenne, de lecture pas toujours facile (certains mots étant difficiles à déchiffrer), auréole de mouillure souvent pâle dans la partie inférieure du second cahier, sinon bon état. Cahiers de notes prises à un cours par un élève, ou un jeune médecin, de la Faculté de médecine de Paris, anonyme. Si le nom de l'auteur de ce cours n'est pas indiqué, la date inscrite permet d'attribuer ce cours à Dupuytren. Après le décès de Bichat en 1802, deux jeunes et brillants pionniers de l'anatomie pathologique, Dupuytren et Laennec, qui allaient bientôt devenir célèbres, décidèrent d'ouvrir à leur tour un cours d'anatomie pathologique. Dupuytren commença son premier cours en germinal an XI et l'acheva environ 6 semaines plus tard (avril-mai 1803) ; ses premières leçons du cours d'anatomie pathologique, faites en l'an XI, étaient suivies par Laennec, ainsi que par "MM. Fleury, Beauchêne et Bayle, prosecteurs ou aides d'anatomie, et un grand nombre d'élèves distinguées." (cf. J Med Chir Pharma, an XIII, T. IX, 441-446 et T. X, 89-95, 96-102). Laennec indiqua lui-même qu'il fit son premier cours durant l'an XII (cours ayant donc commencé au plus tôt en octobre 1803). Le manuscrit proposé ici ne peut donc pas correspondre au cours de Laennec. Un autre argument plaide en faveur d'un cours donné par Dupuytren. Ce manuscrit renferme en effet un chapitre intitulé "Observation sur un jeune homme qui portait une foetus dans la cavité de l'abdomen". Or cette observation extraordinaire (rattachée actuellement à un foetus-in-foetu ou "jumeau parasite") fut rapportée par Dupuytren à la demande de la Société de médecine [cf. Bull Fac. Med. Paris, an XIII, p. 4 et Moreau de la Sarthe LJ : Description Des Principales Monstruosites Dans L'Homme Et Dans Les Animaux, pp. VII-IX]. Ces deux cahiers exposent les lésions et affections du système cardio-vasculaire (en particulier anévrysmes), du système lymphatique, de la rate, du foie et des voies biliaires, des organes de la génération (testicules, vésicules séminales, verge, parties génitales de la femme), des voies urinaires, etc. Dupuytren expose ici certaines de ces altérations organiques (à l'origine d¿une querelle de priorité avec Laennec) comme la métamorphose osseuse de certains tissus. Ce cours de Dupuytren est particulièrement précieux, car Dupuytren n'a jamais eu le temps de publier le traité d'anatomie pathologique qu'il voulait rédiger, ni même ce cours. Ses conceptions ne sont exposées que dans quelques rares articles et dans la thèse de son élève Marandel. Mais comme l'indique Cruveilhier, Dupuytren a "exercé une influence immense" sur l'anatomie pathologique, "par un enseignement des plus brillants et des plus persévérants" ; "tous les ouvrages modernes respirent ses doctrines, tous ont mis à profit les leçons de sa vaste expérience". Guillaume Dupuytren (1777-1835) était alors chirurgien en second de l'Hôtel-Dieu. Il avait été nommé chef des travaux anatomiques en 1801 et chargé par Corvisart de recherches anatomo-pathologiques sur des cadavres à la Charité. Dupuytren soumit également tous ses patients décédés à l'Hôtel-Dieu à une autopsie. Il devint en 1815 chirurgien en chef de l'Hôtel-Dieu et professeur de clinique chirurgicale. Il fut le chirurgien le plus réputé d'Europe pendant deux décennies. Cf. Rather LJ : The genesis of cancer, pp. 59-60 : "According to Jean Cruveilhier, Guillaume Dupuytren delivered a course of lectures on pathological anatomy at Paris in 1803. Cruveilhier wrote that Dupuytren 'established the species, gener, orders and classes of organic lesions, elevated pathological anatomy to the rank of a science and gave it an appropriate code of laws'.

        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.

      Venezia 1803 - Questa rarissima carta appartiene ad progetto di atlante, mai portato a compimento, della così denominata Società Calcografia, una semplice operazione commerciale tra i due editori leader del mercato veneto del XVIII secolo, Antonio Zatta e Giuseppe Antonio Remondini. Il termine Società Calcografica viene da noi dedotto dalla carta del mondo presente in questa raccolta, che nel cartiglio in basso reca l’iscrizione in lingua francese "à Venise Chez la Societè Chalcographique 1799". Come detto il progetto non venne mai portato a compimento; nessun atlante contenente queste mappe, con indice e frontespizio, è infatti noto alle bibliografie. E’ probabile pertanto che le carte venissero vendute singolarmente o in piccole raccolte personalizzate. Le mappe inserite nella raccolta derivano in parte da lastre di Paolo e Francesco Santini, usate da Remondini nel "Atlas Universelle" del 1782/4 ed in parte da lastre edite da Antonio Zatta per il "Nuovo Atlante" pubblicato nel 1796. Le mappe del Santini sono abilmente arricchite, tramite un sistema di piccole lastre mascherate che sono chiaramente visibili sulle mappe per il segno calcografico, da grandi cartigli nel classico stile dello Zatta, incisi dai suoi stretti collaboratori Pasquali, Zuliani e Pitteri. I cartigli spesso contengono le descrizioni storiche, e le mappe furono probabilmente realizzate per illustrare i notevoli cambiamenti geografici che subì la penisola durante il periodo napoleonico. Datate tra il 1795 ed il 1805 sono principalmente dedicate ad illustrare la penisola, sebbene esistano carte di molte regioni europee e dei continenti. La recente bibliografia Terre di Langobardia ne descrive alcune raffiguranti la Repubblica Cisalpina, descrivendole come parte del "Atlas très Nouveau" del solo Remondini, edito a partire dal 1800. La nostra opinione è che i due editori collaborarono in questo progetto almeno fino alla morte di Antonio Zatta (1804), e che il progetto di un atlante completo non fu mai portato a termine anche per la morte di Giuseppe Antonio Remondini (1811). Personalmente sono a conoscenza di 61 carte di questo progetto. Incisione in rame, finemente colorata da mano coeva, in ottimo stato di conservazione. This very rare map belongs to a never finished project for the atlas of the so called Società Calcografia, a simple commercial trade realized by the two main Venetian publishers of the XVIII century, Antonio Zatta and Giuseppe Antonio Remondini. The term Società Calcografica has been deduced from the map of the world, which is part of the collection and bears in the lower cartouche the French writing "à Venise Chez la Societè Chalcographique 1799". As already stated, the project was never finished for no atlas containing these maps has ever been listed in any bibliography. Very likely, then, the maps have been sold individually, or maybe as part of smaller, custom collections. The maps of the collection derive from Paolo and Francesco Santini’s plates, used by Remondini in his 1782/4 "Atlas Universelle", and from the plates of Antonio Zatta’s "Nuovo Atlante", published in 1796. Santini’s maps have been beautifully enriched, using the system of small, masked plates which can be perceived through the platemarks on the paper, with great cartouches according to the classical style of Zatta and have been probably engraved by the members of his staff, Pasquali, Zuliani and Pitteri. The cartouches bear very often historical descriptions and maybe the maps have been realized to depict the great geographic changes of the peninsula during the Napoleonic period. The modern bibliography Terre di Langobardia describes some of the maps depicting the Repubblica Cisalpina, presenting them as part of Remondini’s "Atlas très Nouveau", which was printed starting from 1800. In our opinion, the two publishers worked together to the realization of the project until Antonio Zatta died (1804), and the complete atlas was never finished because Giuseppe Antonio Remondini also died

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.

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.

(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.

Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Front free endpaper missing. Very Rare ! George Walker (13 March 1803 23 April 1879) was an English chess player and author of The Celebrated Analysis of A D Philidor (London, 1832), The Art of Chess-Play: A New Treatise on the Game of Chess (London, 1832), A Selection of Games at Chess played by Philidor (London, 1835), Chess Made Easy (London, 1836), and Chess Studies (London, 1844). In 1839 visited Paris and the Café de la Régence, where he lost (+1-2) a short match to Boncourt. In 1845, he teamed up with Henry Thomas Buckle, William Davies Evans, George Perigal, and William Josiah Tuckett in London in two telegraph games (one win and one draw) against a team of Howard Staunton and Hugh Alexander Kennedy in Portsmouth. He won a match against Daniel Harrwitz (7-5) at London 1846. Walker used his column in Bell's Life to propagate organizing the international London 1851 chess tournament, the first international chess tournament. Adolf Anderssen won, leading many to consider him the world's strongest player. (Wikipedia)
