The complete edition was published between 1805-1822 and appeared in 22 volumes. 'Belle édit, tirée`250 exemplaires (.)'. Brunet, 1, 19242. 'Vittorio Alfieri, Asti 16-1-1749 - Florence 8-10-1803. 'Italian tragic poet whose predominant theme was the overthrow of tyranny. In his tragedies, he hoped to provide Italy with dramas comparable to those of other European nations. Through his lyrics and dramas he helped to revive the national spirit of Italy and so earned the title of precursor of the Risorgimento, Educated at the Military Academy of Turin, Alfieri became an ensign. A distaste for military life led him to obtain leave to travel through most of Europe. In England he found the political liberty that became his ideal, and in France the literature that influenced him most profoundly. He studied Voltaire, J.J. Rousseau, and above all, Montesquieu. Alfieri settled in Turin in 1772 and resigned his commission the following year. To divert himself, he wrote 'Cleopatra', a tragedy performed with great succes in 1775. Thereupon Alfieri decided to devote himself to literature. He began a methodical study of the classics and of the Italian poets, and since he expressed himself mainly in French, the language of the ruling classes in Turin, he went to Tuscany to familiarize himself with pure Italian. By 1782 he had written 14 tragedies as well as many poems (including four odes in the series 'L'America libera', on American independence). Meanwhile, in Florence in 1777, Alfieri had met the Countess of Albany, wife of the Stuart pretender to the English throne, Charles Edward. He remained deeply attached to her for the rest of his life. Alfieri's genius was essentialy dramatic. Alfieri's tragedies present the struggle between a champion of liberty and a tyrant.'

Très bel exemplaire, dans une riche reliure de l'époque signée P. Lefuel, au chiffre, non couronné, de M[arie]-C[aroline] de Bourbon-Sicile, duchesse de Berry (1798-1870), qui réunit dans son château de Rosny, près de Mantes, une importante bibliothèque de volumes imprimés et manuscrits. (Fer non connu de Guigard et de l'OHR.) Pierre-Paul de Riquet (1604-1680) pensa toute sa vie à la mise en œuvre du canal de Languedoc, reliant l'Atlantique à la Méditerranée. Il amassa une fortune considérable qui lui permit, grâce à l'impulsion de Colbert et de Louis XIV, de lancer ce chantier cyclopéen, auquel il consacra 14 années : il mourut sans voir l'aboutissement des travaux. Ses descendants continuèrent le chantier et recouvrirent, beaucoup plus tard, les fonds investis. Ouvrage orné d'un beau frontispice gravé par R. Delvaux d'après Mirys. On y voit, sous le portrait en médaillon de Riquet de Bonrepos, une scène animée légendée "Riquet expose son projet aux Commissaires du Roi et des Etats". In fine : grande carte dépliante donnant le tracé du canal de l'étang de Thau, près d'Agde, à Toulouse et l'emplacement des 62 écluses. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Seasons -- LARGE PAPER COPY IN ORIGINAL BOARDS

      London: T. Bensley for J. Wallis, 1805 - Roy. 8vo, pp. xx + 286. The best edition of this beloved and much reprinted poem, first published in 1730, featuring a title vignette and nine engravings by Bewick after designs by John Thurston. Wallis's edition of THE SEASONS was issued in five parts in three editions: foolscap (at 7s 6d), demy octavo (at 12s 6d), and royal octavo (at 15s). This example is one of the latter, "printed in the best style by [Thomas] Bensley, on a superfine wove Paper, upon a new and very large Type," as the prospectus notes. The difference in the editions was not only the size and quality of the paper but also the size of the illustration. Whereas the two cheaper editions printed scaled-down images of the woodcuts in landscape, the royal octavo featured full-size woodcuts printed in portrait. As the author of a 2013 essay on Wallis's editions observes, "The differences in orientation and design of the illustrations profoundly affect the material appearance of the editions and the consumer’s reading experience." Sandro Jung notes in a recent monograph on the visual history of Thomson's poem, in Bewick's hands "nature and human life has reached a balance, and even the rustic cottage no longer features as an alien object within the landscape but is naturalized." It was the same year that this edition of THE SEASONS was published that Wordsworth rhapsodized Bewick in LYRICAL BALLADS: "O now that the genius of Bewick were mine, / And the skill which he learned on the banks of the Tyne! / Then the Muses might deal with me just as they chose, / For I'd take my last leave both of verse and of prose. / What feats would I work with my magical hand! / Book learning and books would be banished the land." Hugo 203; Tattersfield TB 2.569.

Literatur: Le Blanc 19; Perez 131, III (von III). – Sehr guter Abdruck dieses historisch besonders interessanten Blattes. Das Chinapapier auf einen Folio-Bogen aufgewalzt, dieser in den Rändern stockfleckig und mit kleinen Einrissen. Der hauptsächlich als Zeichner, Radierer und Kupferstecher tätige Künstler studierte in seiner Geburtsstadt an der École gratuite de dessin. Darüber hinaus bildete er sich autodidaktisch weiter. 1758 veröffentlichte er im Auftrag des Pariser Stechers und Kupferstichverlegers Pariset seine ersten Radierungen. 1761-1764 setzte er sein Studium in Paris fort, wo er Schüler des Historienmalers J.-Ch. Frontier (1701-1763) und eines gewissen Lombards war. In Paris verkehrte er im Kreis von J.G. Wille (1715-1808), Jos. Vernet (1714-1789), L.-E. Watelet (1780-1866), J.-B. Greuze (1725-1805), J.G. Soufflot (1713-1780) und dem jungen Herzog Alex Duc de La Rochefoucauld, den er 1765-1766 nach Italien begleitete. In Italien schuf er zahlreiche Landschaftszeichnungen und Abbildungen von Monumenten. Nach seiner Rückkehr nach Lyon hatte er großen Erfolg mit seinen Zeichnungen und Radierungen, mit Porträts und italienischen und niederländischen Landschaften sowie der heimischen Landschaft von Lyon. Auch als Reproduktionsstecher nach Gemälden oder Skulpturen fand er zahlreiche Auftraggeber. 1771 wurde der Künstler zum königlichen Berater und Kämmerer berufen. 1780 erfolgte die Aufnahme in die Lyoner Akademie. Während der französischen Revolution stand er unter der Protektion des Künstlers J.-L David (1748-1825) – seine Kupferplatten wurden unter gesetzlichen Schutz gestellt. 1802 wurde Boissieu Mitglied der Verwaltungskommission des Kunstkonservatoriums. 1806 bis zu seinem Tode war er Bürgermeister von Lentilly in der Nähe von Lyon. Boissieus Arbeiten sind in den Museen weltweit zu finden, so in Paris im Louvre, in Frankfurt am Main im Städel oder in der National Gallery of Art in Washington DC.

Juni 1527 ebenda) war ein florentinischer Philosoph, Politiker, Diplomat, Chronist und Dichter.Vor allem aufgrund seines Werkes Il Principe (dt. Der Fürst) gilt er als einer der bedeutendsten Staatsphilosophen der Neuzeit. Machiavelli ging es hier – im Ansatz neutral – darum, Macht analytisch zu untersuchen, anstatt normativ vorzugehen und die Differenz zwischen dem, was sein soll und dem, was ist, festzustellen. Er orientierte sich in seiner Analyse an dem, was er für empirisch feststellbar hielt.[1] Sein politisches und literarisches Werk Discorsi ist darüber in den Hintergrund getreten.Der später geprägte Begriff Machiavellismus wird oft als abwertende Beschreibung eines Verhaltens gebraucht, das zwar raffiniert ist, aber ohne ethische Einflüsse von Moral und Sittlichkeit die eigene Macht und das eigene Wohl als Ziel sieht. Sein Name wird daher heute häufig mit rücksichtsloser Machtpolitik unter Ausnutzung aller Mittel verbunden.\" (Wikipedia) * * Gut bis sehr gut erhaltenes Exemplar.

        A TREATY BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND THE UNITED TRIBES OF SAC AND FOX INDIANS

      Washington, 1805. Dbd. Near fine. In a half morocco box. The original printing of the important 1804 treaty made between William Henry Harrison and Sac (Sauk) and Fox chiefs at St. Louis, through which the Sauk and Fox were coerced into ceding the greater part of their lands to the United States. Four years before the treaty was signed, William Henry Harrison was appointed governor of Indiana Territory, in which one of his immediate tasks was to obtain minor cessions of Indian territory along the Illinois River. In August 1804 a handful of white squatters were killed in a fight on Sauk and Fox hunting grounds about forty miles north of St. Louis, providing Harrison with an excuse to prosecute a much larger demand in that region. In late October, Quashquame, a minor Sauk chief, and other "head men" of the Sauk and Fox arrived in St. Louis for a council with Harrison, bringing with them one of the accused killers, who was immediately put behind bars. After a week of pleading for his release and drinking heavily at the local grog shops, Quashquame and his delegation were assembled before Harrison on Nov. 3, "confused, intimidated, and either drunk or hung over" (Channick, p.8). To their surprise and befuddlement, the Indians were read the present land treaty, which they were expected to sign that day with their marks. The 2,000-word treaty traded the Sauk and Fox's rights to 23,000 square miles of their lands in present-day Illinois, Wisconsin, and Missouri, for the "friendship and protection" of the United States together with a one-time payment of goods worth $2,234.50, and annual payments worth $1000. Herbert S. Channick notes in his 1998 ILLINOIS HERITAGE article on the subject that considering "that their winter fur catch was reputed to have brought the Sauk and Fox as much as $60,000 in a single season, the deal was preposterous on its face" (pp.8-9). One of the country's great swindles for Indian lands in the Mississippi Valley, helping set the stage for the Black Hawk War of 1832. An excessively rare document, as are most Indian treaties printed before the burning of Washington in 1814 and the emergence of the U.S. Congressional Serial Set in 1817. Two copies are listed between Sabin, Shaw & Shoemaker, and OCLC, at the Massachusetts Historical Society and the British Museum.

        St. George and the Dragon

      1805. first edition. St. George and the DragonGILLRAY, James. St. George and the Dragon. [Britannia; Napoléon Bonaparte; King George III] A Design for an Equestrian Statue, from the Original in Windsor Castle. Drawn by an Amateur. Etched by Js. Gillray. London: Published August 2nd. 1805. by H. Humphrey. 27 St. James's Street.Hand colored etching (16 x 16 inches; 406 x 406 mm.). Edges a little browned, two short tears (5/8 inch at top margin and 1/4 inch at lower margin). Matted. "The Royal St. George rescuing Britannia from the fangs of the Monster of France. The King wears the uniform of his own regiment of Guards (the Blues). But a few weeks after the date of this print, the Imperial Crown received a gash in the victory of Trafalgar, not much less formidable than the one here represented literally."In the manner of history painting rather than caricature. Below the title: 'a Design for an Equestrian Statue, from the Original in Windsor Castle'. George III as St. George, in uniform, holds up his sword, about to give a final blow to a scaly dragon with the head of Napoleon. The long convolutions of the dragon are under the horse's feet: Napoleons head, with a barbed fang and flames from the mouth, looks on despairingly. A sword-cut has gashed his skull, and cut his crown in two. The dragon has large wings and the legs and talons of a beast of prey; it falls backwards: Britannia will just escape being crushed. "The threat of invasion was at its climax: on 2 Aug. Napoleon (having returned from Italy) set off for Boulogne. On 22 July Calder fought his indecisive action against the combined French and Spanish fleets, leaving Villeneuve to seek harbour, secure reinforcements, and again put to sea on 9 Aug. for the King as St. George." (British Museum).Caricaturist and engraver James Gillray (1757-1815) ?"was apprenticed to a letter engraver and worked under classical engravers such as Ryland and Bartolozzi in stipple. He trained at the R.A. Schools and did some book illustrations for Macklin?'s Tom Jones before turning to caricature in about 1780. His earlier works were published by the printseller Robert Wilkinson of Cornhill, forsaking him for Fores in about 1787. Gillray finally came to rest as chief caricaturist to Mrs. Humphrey at New and Old Bond Street, where he lodged till his death. Gillray was the first professional caricaturist in this country, he simplified the art of the amateurs by replacing archaic symbols with forceful design and his art training enabled him to work on a more heroic scale than his predecessors. His work hit very hard and as the artist was something of a political maverick, he was assiduously courted by all parties. His frequent satires on Royal extravagance such as ?'A Voluptuary under the horrors of Digestion?' 1792 and the caricatures of Napoleon and Charles James Fox, created in their realism and savagery a whole new field for the caricaturist. Although much of his work dates from before 1800, a group of marvellous caricatures appeared in the early 1800s including ?'Tiddy-Doll, the great French-Gingerbread Baker?', 1806, ?'Uncorking Old Sherry?', 1805, ?'The Plum-pudding in danger?', 1805 and most famous of all ?'The King of Brobdingnag and Gulliver?', 1803. Gillray?'s last work was engraved in 1811 shortly before he became insane; his position was taken by the young George Cruikshank?" (Houfe).Wright & Evans, James Gillray, #300

         Antiquités Mexicaines. Relation des trois expéditions du Capitaine Dupaix, ordonnées en 1805, 1806, et 1807, pour la recherche des antiquités du pays, notamment celles de Mitla et de Palenque. Paris, Jules Didot l'ainé, 1834. 3 parts in 2 volumes. Large folio (55.5 x 36 cm). With lithographed frontispiece and 161 (numbered as 166) lithographed plates (1 double-page and 160 full-page), nearly half beautifully hand-coloured and most of the rest tinted or double-tinted. Lacking (as usual) the map mentioned on the title-page. Gold-tooled red morocco (1855?), with the arms of Czar Alexander II of Russia on the boards. .

      Breslauer, Cat. 50, item 1083 (this copy); Leclerc 1065; Palau 13069; Sabin 40038. First edition of a magnificent show-piece displaying the recently discovered antiquities of Mexico, especially those of the Mayan city of Palenque, based on the expeditions of Captain Guillermo Dupaix in the years 1805 to 1807 and illustrated with 162 lithographic plates (including the frontispiece), mostly tinted or beautifully hand-coloured. Some copies were issued with the plates uncoloured and many with them partly coloured, but only a few with the splendid and extensive colouring shown here. The extraordinary illustrations, nearly all drawn by José Luciano Castañeda, who accompanied Dupaix on all three voyages, gave Europeans their first good look at Mayan civilization. They also show many buildings and artefacts that have since been lost or damaged (soon after the expeditions Mexico sank into turmoil and revolution for three quarters of a century). In addition to Palenque, the book covers the Zapotec/Mixtec site Mitla in Oaxaca and even Aztec and other sites.The arms on the binding were in use by the Czars of Russia from 1645 to 1856, after which the image of St. George was reversed. Nicholas I was Czar when the book first appeared, but if the initial A in each rectangular element in the chain of the order of St. Andrew stands for his son Alexander (as suggested by Breslauer), the binding probably dates from the first year of the reign of Czar Alexander II, who succeeded his father in 1855. Perhaps his accession to the throne was the occasion for presentation of the book.In very good condition (most of the plates fine) with the text leaves slightly foxed as usual and a few minor marginal defects. The frontispiece, normally bound with the text, appears here with the plates. The bindings also very good, with cracks in the hinges at the foot of the plates volume. A splendid book that revolutionized European knowledge of ancient Mexico and remains an essential primary source for the study of Mexican antiquities..

        SKETCH OF THE HUTS OF KAMCHATKA COPIED AFTER COOK [translation of portion of manuscript caption title]

      Nagasaki, Japan, 1805. One-inch chip in upper left corner, small chip in upper right corner and center of lower edge, else very good. Mounted at upper corners onto heavier paper stock. Archival matting, and protected with Mylar sheet. A handsome original gouache and ink on paper copy of plate seventy-two in the atlas of Cook's third voyage, called "A View of Bolcheretzkoi, in Kamtschatka." This copy of the view of Kamchatka natives, their huts, and their animals was made during the Krusenstern circumnavigation of the globe (1803 to 1806). It was drawn by Herman von Friderici, who was major of the General Staff for Ambassador Rezanov, and was presented to Wilhelm Gottlieb Tilesius von Tilenau, a naturalist and artist on the Krusenstern expedition. A manuscript note on the verso in Tilesius' hand explains that it was made by Friderici and given as a gift. Comparison with the actual plate in the Cook atlas shows this to be a very accomplished copy, with all the details from the original reproduced very faithfully. Ambassador Rezanov's mission was to attempt to open Japan to Russian trade, but he was ultimately unsuccessful. An interesting artifact, linking the Krusenstern and Cook voyages.

        PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE...TO THE SENATE AND HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. AT A MOMENT WHEN THE NATIONS OF EUROPE ARE IN COMMOTION AND ARMING AGAINST EACH OTHER...[caption title and beginning of text]

      New London, 1805. Expertly backed with archival paper. Some small holes, tiny areas of loss along the folds, affecting a small amount of text; some foxing and toning; some faint contemporary ink and pencil notations on verso, with mild bleedthrough of the ink. Good plus, untrimmed, with wide margins. A very rare printing of the first State of the Union Address of President Jefferson's second term. It was printed by the Gazette Office in New London, Connecticut. Interestingly, the date at the end of the message was printed incorrectly, as "December 3, 1806," when the actual date of Jefferson's address was a year earlier. In this State of the Union Address the President relates the difficulties in settling differences with Spain, especially the Louisiana boundary issues: "Propositions for adjusting amicably the boundaries of Louisiana have not been acceded to. While, however, the right is unsettled, we have avoided changing the state of things by taking new posts or strengthening ourselves in the disputed territories, in the hope that the other power would not by a contrary conduct oblige us to meet their example and endanger conflicts of authority the issue of which may not be easily controlled. But in this hope we have now reason to lessen our confidence. Inroads have been recently made into the Territories of Orleans and the Mississippi, our citizens have been seized and their property plundered in the very parts of the former which had been actually delivered up by Spain, and this by the regular officers and soldiers of that Government. I have therefore found it necessary at length to give orders to our troops on that frontier to be in readiness to protect our citizens, and to repel by arms any similar aggressions in future." Jefferson devotes a considerable portion of this message to relating recent land purchases from Native Americans. He praises the Indians for their pursuit of agriculture, then enumerates recent land acquisitions, including: "...the lands between the Connecticut Reserve and the former Indian boundary and those on the Ohio from the same boundary to the rapids and for a considerable depth inland. The Chickasaws and Cherokees have sold us the country between and adjacent to the two districts of Tennessee, and the Creeks the residue of their lands in the fork of the Ocmulgee up to the Ulcofauhatche. The three former purchases are important, in as much as they consolidate disjoined parts of our settled country and render their intercourse secure; and the second particularly so, as, with the small point on the river which we expect is by this time ceded by the Piankeshaws, it completes our possession of the whole of both banks of the Ohio from its source to near its mouth, and the navigation of that river is thereby rendered forever safe to our citizens settled and settling on its extensive waters. The purchase from the Creeks, too, has been for some time particularly interesting to the State of Georgia." The President mentions the possibility of "new relations" and the potential for "commercial intercourse" with various Indians living on the Missouri River and "other parts beyond the Mississippi." Jefferson is expecting communications from explorers in this area, "which we have reason shortly to expect." The "explorers" are Lewis and Clark, this address coming in the midst of the Corps of Discovery's epic western expedition. Jefferson discusses a variety of other issues, foreign and domestic, in this State of the Union address. He speaks at length about recent outbreaks of "the fatal fever" which have afflicted various American cities; he calls for further fortification of seaports, and a general build-up of the armed forces, including more gunboats and "material for the construction of ships of war of 74 guns." He also suggests a prohibition of exports of firearms and ammunition, praises Congress for handling prisoner-of-war transfers from Tripoli after the recently concluded Barbary War, and recommends guidelines for the number of naval frigates to be used in peace time. He ends the speech with an accounting of Treasury finances. Two other broadside printings of this State of the Union are located in Shaw & Shoemaker's AMERICAN IMPRINTS, in Newport and Salem. This New London broadside printing of Jefferson's Message is not listed in Shaw & Shoemaker, nor is it located on OCLC or in the Library of Congress. Important, and quite possibly unique.

        ACTS PASSED AT THE FIRST SESSION OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL OF THE TERRITORY OF ORLEANS, BEGUN AND HELD AT THE PRINCIPAL, IN THE CITY OF NEW-ORLEANS...ONE THOUSAND EIGHT HUNDRED AND FOUR.... [and:] ACTS PASSED AT THE SECOND SESSION OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL OF THE TERRITORY OF ORLEANS, BEGUN AND HELD AT THE PRINCIPAL, IN THE CITY OF NEW-ORLEANS...ONE THOUSAND EIGHT HUNDRED AND FIVE

      New Orleans: Printed by James M. Bradford, 1805.. Two volumes. xxxiv,461; xii,95pp. Octavo. Half calf and marbled boards in antique style, leather labels. Short tear to titlepage of the second volume, neatly mendedsmall marginal tape repair to F4 in the first volume, light staining to some leaves, occasional tanning, minor contemporary ink marginalia. A very good set. A rare and important set of the the first American laws printed west of the Mississippi. They encompass the first two session laws for the Louisiana territory under American rule, with the text printed in English and French on facing pages. In March, 1804, the Louisiana Purchase was divided into the Territories of Orleans (south of the present border of Arkansas and Missouri) and Louisiana (everything to the north and west, governed until 1807 by Indiana Territory). The influence of French and Spanish laws in North America is evident in these early territorial laws, as it took Congress more than two decades to determine their intent with regard to existing Spanish and French law. These imprints are the same as the second and third works bound with the COMPILATION of New Orleans laws in item 1587 in the Streeter sale. "At the first session of the Legislative Council 51 Acts and one joint resolution were approved, the latest on May 1, 1805; and at the second session 15 acts were approved, the latest dated July 3, 1805" - Streeter. Early Louisiana laws are especially rare; this is only the second time we've ever seen these imprints. JUMONVILLE 121, 122. McMURTRIE (NEW ORLEANS) 77, 78. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 9072, 9073.

        REFLECTIONS ON THE CAUSE OF THE LOUISIANIANS, RESPECTFULLY SUBMITTED BY THEIR AGENTS

      [Washington, 1805. Dbd. Upper margin of titlepage inscribed in a contemporary hand: "Hon.ble. Mr. Bradley." Some light foxing, else near fine. In a half morocco box. A brief account of Louisiana under its various occupations, calling for the swift establishment of its statehood. The pamphlet, which was presumably submitted to Congress, is dated 1804 by Sabin, but is more likely to have been printed after Dec. 31, 1804, when a memorial mentioned on page 5 was submitted, and before March 2, 1805, when the Orleans Territory government bill was passed. The present copy bears a contemporary ink ownership inscription, presumably in a clerical hand, of the "Hon.ble. Mr. Bradley." Stephen Row Bradley, U.S. Senator from Vermont from 1791 to 1795 and 1801 to 1813, was instrumental in advocating his own state's admission to the Union. This extremely rare pamphlet was evidently privately printed to lobby members of Congress to move swiftly to formulate a territorial government. It argues that the citizens were perfectly happy under the Spanish government, and that the successive changes in governments had led to laws being promulgated without publication. The pamphlet goes on to argue that the people of Louisiana can only be happy and loyal to the United States if they know they have equal rights as American citizens and can look forward to statehood and political representation.

        VOYAGE DANS LES DEUX LOUISIANES, ET CHEZ LES NATIONS SAUVAGES DU MISSOURI, PAR LES ETATS-UNIS, L'OHIO ET LES PROVINCES QUI LE BORDENT, EN 1801, 1802, ET 1803

      Paris, 1805. Modern half cloth and marbled boards, leather label. Light wear to binding. Slight trace of foxing. Else a near fine copy. An important early piece of Western Americana, describing a fur trading expedition up the Missouri to the White River of South Dakota in 1802. Besides being a major source of information on the early fur trade, it provides much information relating to the tribes along the Missouri River at the time. The map has been described as "the earliest published map of the trans-Mississippi region which can be said to display even the faintest semblance of accuracy" (Wheat). The plate depicts the mammoth fossil skeleton on display in Philadelphia. Two French editions were issued in 1805, one in Lyon, and the present Paris edition.
