        Autograph letter signed. Rome, 27 March [1805].

      1805. 3 pp. 8vo. To an unnamed correspondent; address panel on verso of third page: "I have been deeply touched, dear Sir, by the feeling which inspired your article and I can say, without being influenced by my gratitude toward you, that there are some words in it that are remarkable not only for the elevation of thought, but I may add also for the soundness of judgment they indicate when you talk about my father. If you still read Le publiciste you must have seen in it a really touching letter. I may say that all that reaches me from Paris is in harmony with what I have been longing for. In the note on opposite natures, there is a line you wrote which I find extremely witty and true at the same time: there is no doubt that the big difference that exists between some souls, whose cause is unknown from us, makes it impossible for certain persons to understand each other ever and I think I would understand more easily the expression in the eye of some Persian than what some people say, even though they speak French. Thank you very much for giving me the hope that we will see each other in Milan. Your kindness to me makes you feel more attached to me: this is the sure sign of a generous nature. It is in six weeks probably that I will have the pleasure of seeing you again. I have enjoyed the arts and nature in the South of Italy, but my most tender affections were born when I first got to Milan, and returning there gives me a renewed pleasure, since you have shown me so clearly that my friends there have not forgotten me".

        Ballads ... founded on Anecdotes relating to Animals, with Prints, designed and engraved by William Blake

      first edition8vo.[2 (blank)], [8 (title leaf, preface leaf, a blank leaf, half or sub-title)], 212, [2 (contents and colophon)], [2 (blank)]pp., 5 plates by Blake (untrimmed and clearly exhibiting the plate mark), near contemporary maroon roan backed marbled boards, marbled paper over boards, edges untrimmed as issued, paper title label on spine lettered in faded ink manuscript, plain later endpapers, light water stain at the lower gutter side of the last 2 leaves (mainly evident on the terminal blank leaf) with very light marks at the same point on neighbouring leaves (including the last plate). leaves A4-A5 a little creased and dusty (as if the book may once have fallen open at that point), occasional other minor dusty smudges, generally a very good and pleasing copy. Bentley Blake Books, 465 The plates are signed below the images "Blake inv & s[c]' and have the imprint 'Pubd. [or Pub'd] june 18, 1805, by R. Phillips N[o]6 Bridge Street Black Friers". Plates 1 to 3 inclusive are in the second, more extensively worked, state. Plates 4 and 5 are in the first and only state. This copy has a comma (rather than a full stop) after 'BLAKE' on the title page (as in the copy at Princeton with plates 1 and 2 in the second state). This book is possibly a copy in the original boards that have at some later point in the nineteenth century been backed with maroon roan, and the boards covered with cloth and then with marbled paper and supplied with new endpapers, possibly by an amateur.The bookplate looks as if it may have been lifted from its original setting and relaid.

        Autograph title-page of the overture of Der fliegende Holländer arranged for keyboard, with an autograph draft of the title page of Rienzi to verso, both incorporating Wagner's name in autograph

      Unpublished. Not in Wagner-Briefe-Verzeichnis. Robert Friese (1805-1848) was, from ca. 1834 to his death, the companion of the Leipzig publisher and bookseller Robert Blum (1807-1848). Blum was executed as a revolutionary in Vienna on November 9, 1848; Friese died two days earlier (probably also by execution). Wagner sent Friese the title words of the [first] editions of his opera Rienzi and the overture of Der fliegende Holländer, in all likelihood to be used as an announcement (or advertisement) in a publication by Friese and Blum. The former edition was published, the latter distributed by Meser in Dresden later that year.. 1f. Quarto (287 x 230 mm.), with integral autograph address panel addressed to Robert Friese in Leipzig in another hand. In black ink. Handstamp "Dresden 21. Apr. [18]44;" postmark "Bahnpost Apr. [?]II 8-10.;" and seal: "K[öniglich] S[ächsische] Hof-Musikalienhandl[ung] v[on] C. F. Meser Dresden." With annotations in red crayon and blue pencil to verso. In German (with translation). With title of forthcoming editions of the overture of Der fliegende Holländer, arranged for piano 2-hands and 4-hands to recto and the same for an edition of the opera Rienzi to verso, both in Wagner's autograph and incorporating his name, with autograph corrections in Wagner's hand to the note regarding Rienzi. Slightly worn; creased at folds and slightly overall; several small edge tears; small triangular area of loss to blank right margin corresponding to opposing seal.

        Magnificent Illuminated Manuscript - Circa 1890's - Sermon on the Mount/Bible

      The Sermon on the Mount. Blindstamped calf over wooden boards, brass clasp, gauffered edges. Calligraphic title leaf, 62 illuminated pages on 31 leaves, all interleaved with 2 blank pages between each illumination. This is a magnificent illuminated manuscript by a woman calligrapher and illuminator. This was a popular and socially acceptable artistic endeavor for women throughout the Victorian era. A good deal of the work, like this book, is of exceptional artistic merit. It is surprising to me that more scholarship has not been done on this topic. With this book, the text is written in black letter with many illuminated initial letters within a 2" x 1.25" block. The text is surrounded by an integrated red, blue, and gold border. The border itself is extended by rich floral decorations augmented with delicate birds, vases, fruits, jewels, mice, butterflies, and other images. These beautiful marginal designs are by L.H. Bloxam. On a blank after the title leaf is a presentation "Henrietta Bloxam from her Mother H.L. Bloxam." The artist was most probably a relation of the Gothic revivalist, Matthew Holbeche Bloxam (1805-1888). The quality of the manuscript must be seen to be appreciated. The ornate binding has been sympathetically res-pined, else very good.

      Foolscap Manuscript in several hands. Log of "Cockatrice", a hired brig, July 1805 to February 1807 ,[76] leaves, dos a dos with the log of HMS" Foxhound" from April 1807 to February 1808 [48] leaves. Contemporary blind ruled vellum notebook, ink titles on boards at each end for the relevant vessel. Loosely inserted notes include A Table of angular altitudes of different ships at sea the Eye being elevated at 24 feet; a memorandum of Dimensions of his Maj's Ship Prince of Wales ; an ink wash sketch of the stowage of stores in barrels aboard an unspecified vessel with a note of their weight.This seems to be the log of ships commanded by Pitt Burnaby Greene who took command of Cockatrice on 6 April 1805, with this log commencing on 7 July 1805."Cockatrice" was hired by The Royal Navy , built at an unknown shipyard.. She was a 12 gun Brig , hired on 6/8/1804 and disposed of back to her owners in 1808.Pitt Burnaby Greene and Cockatrice had a fairly eventful time together, patrolling British South coastal waters and accompanying convoys. In July 1805 Burnaby Greene chased a Lugger but was outclassed and gave up the chase. He boarded another Lug sail boat and a Dutch Galliot, afterwards reading the Order for military Discipline and the Act of War to the ship's company. On 21/7/05 he fired a gun at a ship, finding it to be from Londonderry bound for Dantzig, and spoke to another Danish vessel.On28th he boarded a Swedish Brig from Lisbon, and spoke to an American ship from Virginia. On 30/7/05 he spoke to a ship from Liverpool to Barbadoes and in the first week of August boarded the Hero cutter of Guernsey "on a cruize" and "fired several musquets" at a schooner at daylight. Burnaby Greene moves on to convoy duty; "made the signal for the convoy to close" and then fired 2 shots at one of the convoy for not obeying the signal, later taking the Unity in tow. The log gradually builds up a picture of active and aggressive patrolling and convoy support, but not without touching more glorious events. On Sunday 10th November, they come across HM Ship "Courageuse" with three French 74gun ships as prizes under Sir Richard Strachan.Whilst sailing off Cape Finisterre on 2 November 1805,[just after Trafalgar] Strachan's squadron encountered four French ships of the line that had escaped from the Battle of Trafalgar under the command of Rear-Admiral Dumanoir le Pelley. Sir Richard pursued them, bringing them to battle on 4 November. After a short engagement, known as the Battle of Cape Ortegal he captured all of them, completing the destruction of the French fleet. Off Deal ,in December Cockatrice "Found riding here the Monarch [ at the Battle of Copenhagen Monarch sustained the highest losses of any ship engaged in the battle ] Utrecht, Antelope and several Men of War" which no doubt dwarfed the Cockatrice. On 30th March 06, Burnaby Greene was off Ireland , with orders to take on board the prominent politician the 3rd Earl of Hardwicke, Lord Lieutenant of Ireland from 1801-1805. At the other end of the book, we have the log of HMS "Foxhound".The Foxhound was a purpose built 16 gun Royal Navy Cruizer class Brig-Sloop . She was ordered for the Navy on 16/7/1805, her keel was laid down in August 1806 and she was launched on30th November 1806. Foxhound was built by John King at King's boat builders ,Beach Road, Dover, following a design by William Rule. Dimensions Length of Gundeck 100' 0" Length of Keel 77' 2 ?" Breadth 30' 7" Depth in Hold 12' 9" Draught Forward 7' 0" Draught Aft 11' 0" Burthen 384 26?94 Tons BM Gun Deck 16 British 32-Pound Carronade Bow Chaser 2 British 6-Pounder Crew Complement Date # of Men 1797 121 Design Complement Commanders 1807/03 1809 Commander Pitt Burnaby Greene 1809 1809/08 Commander James M'Kenzie† Petty Officers 1807/12 1808 Midshipman Edward Biddulph Service history 1806/12/08 Began fitting at Sheerness Dockyard 1807/07/17 Completed fitting at Sheerness Dockyard 1809/05/16 Sailed with a convoy for Quebec 1809/08 Lost in the Atlantic while returning from Halifax Pitt Burnaby Greene would have enjoyed his promotion to the newly built HMS Foxhound. As can be seen from the armament information above, she was armed with Carronades. The carronade is a short smoothbore, cast iron cannon, which was used by the Royal Navy and first produced by the Carron Company, an ironworks in Falkirk, Scotland, UK. It was used from the 1770s to the 1850s. Its main function was to serve as a powerful, short-range anti-ship and anti-crew weapon. Their lighter weight meant that smaller ships like Foxhound could pack a bigger punch over shorter ranges. The log begins with the ships carpenters still on board and with supplies being stowed on board. In late July, "Foxhound" made sail in company with a Convoy . In August she is off Cromer, where they "sent our boat to board a Brig to press but got no Men "."Pressing", or more correctly Impressment, refers to the act of taking men into a navy by force and with or without notice. It was used by the Royal Navy in wartime as a means of crewing warships. The Royal Navy impressed many merchant sailors, as well as some sailors from other nations. People liable to impressment were "eligible men of seafaring habits between the ages of 18 and 55 years". The Log continues with boardings [" Boarded an American Brig from NewYork to Amsterdam"] , ship cleaning, punishments [" Punished with 2 dozen lashes Wm. Bechford for contempt of his superior Officers"],and a burial [" At 12.30 departed with life Nicho. Olman... At 4.30 read prayers & buried the Body of the above in his hammock and 2 two and thirty pound shot"]. Foxhound also sails with the Inshore squadron and boards a Galliot from Charante to London and sends 4 men to navigate a Prize to England. In 1812 [and presumably recorded in another log], whilst commanding HMS Bonne Citoyenne , Burnaby Greene, by this time a Post Captain, was involved in events leading up to the action between USS Constitution and HMS Java. USS Constitution and USS Hornet found and blockaded him in the port of Salvador where his ship was undergoing repair. There remains a wealth of research in this manuscript. A rare survival from the heyday of the British Royal Navy. Visit our website on for other interesting books!

        Views in Egypt [WITH] Views in Palestine [WITH] Views in the Ottoman Empire, chiefly in Caramania.

      London Thomas Bensley for R. Bowyer -04-03 1805 - First editions. Three separately published works bound in one volume, folio (47 x 33.3cm.), engraved frontispiece portrait, 96 hand-coloured aquatint views, modern calf-backed marbled boards, vellum tips, all edges gilt, a fine clean well-margined copy. A student of Piranesi, Mayer (1755-1803) made the illustrations when he was employed as the personal view painter for Sir Robert Ainslie, British ambassador at Constantinople from 1776-92. Houfe says that Mayer "was the most accurate delineator of the Near East before David Roberts." The scenes here are quite memorable, not only for the impressive views of ancient monuments, but for their glimpses in to the lives and culture of the people. In addition to rather thrilling depictions of the exploration of Egyptian tombs, we see the luxurious domain of the wife of a Cairo merchant and the military exercises of the mamalukes, soldier-slaves who served the Ottoman provincial rulers--both of these things that would not be encountered by the ordinary traveller. Ainslie was an especially successful envoy, who adopted the Turkish manner of living and was thus more accepted and respected by the Ottomans than most foreigners. His good relations with his hosts no doubt procured access for his artist to areas generally barred to Westerners. Abbey Travel 369; Colas 2018, 2020, 2012. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Isola Bella o Borromea sul Lago Maggiore

      1805. Incantevole veduta dell'Isola Bella, mirabile esempio dell'abilità e sensibilità artistica del Birmann, il quale incarna in sé lo spirito del Grand Tour. La raffigurazione, attenta al più piccolo dettaglio, ci mostra l'Isola Bella, l'Isola dei Pescatori ed in lontananza la cittadina di Baveno in un complesso prospettico di grande profondità. Le Isole sembrano sospese sulle acque del Verbano trasportando lo spettatore in un mondo incantato. Nell'angolo in basso a destra il titolo e la firma del pittore Isola Bella o Borromea sul Lago Maggiore / P. Birmann ad nat. 1805.Peter Birmann (Basle 1758 - 1844)Appena dodicenne svolse l'apprendistato presso il pittore Rudolph Huber, ma i suoi compiti consistettero soprattutto nel badare alla prole del pittore e nell'adempimento di qualche servizio pesante. Finito il periodo di apprendistato partì alla volta di Roma, schöne kunst ihre Heimat hat. Questa città divenne la chiave di volta della crescita e della produzione artistica del giovane artista. Passava le sue giornate al caffè tedesco e davanti ai monumenti, conobbe Philipp Hackert: ciò permette di comprendere la meticolosa esattezza delle sue vedute. Sempre a Roma conobbe Lord Harvey, Vescovo di Bristol che lo introdusse nel giro dei viaggiatori inglesi ed ebbe come suoi clienti, il Duca di Curland e il Conte di Bentinck, per i quali disegnò e dipinse all'acquerello. Il passaggio del Birmann lungo le rive dei laghi lombardi è testimoniato dalle sue opere, che sono da annoverarsi tra le più belle vedute disegnate e dipinte dal vero del Grand Tour.

Moreau (de la Sarthe). 6 vols., 8vo, plus folio atlas containing 40 plates (some double-page). Engraved frontispiece in Vol. I; lacking the printed folding table in Vol. IV. Paris: Duprat-Duverger, An XIII-1805. 199 x 127 mm. (text); 336 x 257 mm. (atlas). Uniformly bound in quarter morocco, marbled boards in period style. Some foxing and browning, leaf repaired in Vol. I, otherwise very good apart from the missing table. 19th century ownership inscription in Vol. II of Olivier du Vivier, Belgian writer on botany. Only Collected Edition. Physician to Marie Antoinette, Vicq d’Azyr was the greatest comparative anatomist of the 18th century. He identified for the first time many of the cerebral convolutions, along with various internal structures of the brain. He described the mammillothalamic tract, which still bears his name, as well as the central sulcus with the pre- and postcentral convolutions and insula, anticipating Reil’s and Rolando’s accounts by 20 years. Vicq d’Azyr died at the age of 46, having published only the first volume of his Traité d’anatomie et de physiologie (1786; Garrison-Morton 401.2), a work of the greatest rarity. Volume VI and the atlas of the Oeuvres contain the second edition of the Traité with some of the finest and most accurate views of the brain and nervous system to be found in neurological literature. Vols. I-III contain Vicq d’Azyr’s Eloges historiques on the lives of great naturalists, chemists and physicians; Vols. IV-V contain his epochal studies in descriptive and comparative anatomy, including the famous works on the flexor and extensor muscles of man and animals, the vocal cords, and the structure of birds and quadrupeds. Vol. I also includes a biography and bibliography of Vicq d’Azyr. 313. Garrison / McHenry, pp. 104-5. Clarke & O’Malley, The Human Brain and Spinal Cord, pp. 269-70; 590-93.

Palmstruch was the editor of the great Swedish botanical work, Svensk Flora, in eleven volumes, with plates hand-coloured by him. The work was planned to comprise three volumes in 24 parts, but no more was published than these eight parts. There was a German translation of the first part, which must be very rare: Schwedens vorzüglicheste Färbeflechten treu nach der Natur abgebildet nesbt der chemischen Bearbeitung derselben besonders in Rücksicht auf Färberey begleitet mit Farbtafeln.

      [Washington, 1805. Two volumes. 225,vi; [233]-376,v,[36]pp. Original plain wrappers. Wrappers lightly worn. Light even tanning, scattered foxing. Very good. Untrimmed and unopened. In a half morocco box. This pair of volumes, covering the acts passed at the first and second sessions of the eighth Congress, contains much significant material concerning the acquisition and governing of Louisiana Territory. The first volume contains the first Congressional printing of the Louisiana Purchase treaty and associated conventions. This famous treaty was really three separate documents. The first was the purchase of Louisiana, the second was a convention for the payment of the money due on the purchase, and the third was a convention for the settlement of old claims. All were executed secretly in Paris in April 1803, ratified by the Senate on Oct. 17, and proclaimed on Oct. 21, 1803. The terms were the most important in American diplomatic history after the 1783 peace treaty. They gave the United States all of the vast Louisiana Territory and made the country a continental power, with territory extending to the Pacific Ocean. The text of all three documents is given in full in French and English. Also included are the texts of treaties with several Indian tribes. The second volume, covering the second session of the eighth Congress, contains the act for the governing of Orleans Territory, the act for governing Upper Louisiana, the constitutional amendment changing the mode of election of the vice-president, the Treaty of Vincennes, and other important laws. This is followed by an index to this volume and the acts of the first session. Neither volume is listed in Shaw & Shoemaker. MALLOY, p.508.

Coiffe supérieure frottée. EDITION ORIGINALE française. En Angleterre, John BROWN (1735-1778), père d'un système qui eut, dans son temps, une diffusion énorme et qui fut appelé « brownisme », affirma que, dans son essence, la vie n'est pas un état normal et spontané, mais un état maintenu par des stimulations continuelles. (Créhange). « Brown's unusual, but immensely popular system of medicine (Brunonism), was based on the principle that life is maintained by a state of externally provoked excitability within living tissues. This disease state was seen as one in which this excitability fell above or below normal limits. After determining the degree and localization of the problem, appropriate stimulants or depressants were administered. The Brunonian theory held the attention of Europe for a quarter century. » (Heirs of Hippocrates, 1018). BEL EXEMPLAIRE en maroquin de l'époque.

PAUL FRANCOIS LACOSTE né près de Toulouse, est un naturaliste aujourd'hui presque oublié qui, il y a deux siècles, enseigna pendant une vingtaine d'années l'histoire naturelle à Clermont-Ferrand et fut le directeur du jardin botanique de cette ville. Il s'intéressa également aux volcans d'Auvergne auxquels il consacra deux ouvrages. Disciple d' Eugène Patrin (1742-1825), il adhéra aux idées parfois extravagantes de celui-ci sur les volcans . Deux ans après la publication de ses Observations sur les volcans d'Auvergne, l'abbé Lacoste jugea nécessaire d'y ajouter un volume de Lettres minéralogiques et géologiques... traitant du même sujet, ce qui lui permit de retoucher son argumentation. C'est ainsi qu'il réexamina la question du retrait de la mer. L'abbé Paul-François Lacoste, naturaliste, géologue et volcanologue, nommé en 1798 professeur d'histoire naturelle à l'école centrale du Puy-de-Dôme. Il fut le premier directeur du jardin botanique qu'il développa et qui est à l'origine du jardin botanique actuel.

      Boston: Printed by Manning and Loring, for E. Larkin, 1805. Three volumes. xii,447; vii,[1],412; vi,[2],475pp. Full antique-style calf, gilt leather labels. Scattered foxing and tanning. Overall, very good. This excellent account of the events of the Revolution was written by a woman intimate with those prominent in the Revolutionary councils of Massachusetts. Throughout the Revolutionary period, historian, poet, and dramatist Mercy Otis Warren actively corresponded on political matters with numerous leaders including Samuel Adams, John Hancock, Patrick Henry, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and especially John Adams, who became her literary mentor in those early years of unrest. In 1805 her literary career culminated with the publication of THE HISTORY OF THE RISE, PROGRESS, AND TERMINATION OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. The book's sharp criticisms of Adams - that his passions and prejudices often debilitated his judgment and that he had demonstrated a distinct leaning toward monarchy during his sojourn in England - led to a heated correspondence and a breach in their friendship in 1807. After nearly five years Elbridge Gerry managed to effect a reconciliation between Mercy and Abigail and John. Howes describes this book as the first important historical work by an American woman. "Her history is interesting both for the expert knowledge it reveals of public affairs and for its lively and penetrating commentary upon the leading figures of the day, more especially for the caustic analysis of character and motives among the 'malignant party' who opposed American freedom" - DAB. HOWES W-122, "aa." SABIN 101484. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 9687. DAB XIX, p.484.
