        GIORNALE ITALIANO

      Milano, presso Federico Agnelli, nella Contrada di Santa Margherita al 1113, 1805-1815. In-4 gr. (mm. 345x218), 22 voll., mz. pelle coeva. Di questo quotidiano, pp. 4 cad. numero - uno dei più importanti giornali politici della prima metà del XIX secolo - offriamo una raccolta completa di 11 annate, suddivise per semestre, dal 2 gennaio 1805 (Anno I, n. 1) al 31 dicembre 1815, quando fu soppresso dal restaurato governo austriaco e assorbito dalla "Gazzetta di Milano". Il ?"Giornale Italiano?" è un periodico fondato a Milano da Vincenzo Cuoco (storico e uomo politico meridionale, in esilio a Milano dopo il fallimento della Repubblica Napoletana del 1799), su incarico di Francesco Melzi D?'Eril (Vice-Presidente della Repubblica Italiana). Trisettimanale da principio, divenne quotidiano dal 1° ottobre 1805 e si estinse alla caduta di Napoleone. A parte la obbligatoria esaltazione degli atti imperiali, si incontrano scorrerie storiche sui costumi, su fatti e istituti nostri non privi di valore e così articoli originali e recensioni curate dal Cuoco, mentre sono attribuibili al Benincasa notizie di viaggi e di usi e costumi stranieri, e al D?'Aniello la cronaca teatrale; anonima è invece la cronaca cittadina. Dopo la partenza del Cuoco la direzione fu assunta dall?'abate Guillon, coadiuvato da letterati italiani fra cui G. Gherardini e F. Cherubini. Buon esemplare. .

Reliures d'époque en plein veau blond glacé signées R.P. Thouvenin. Dos à cinq nerfs richement ornés de filets, dentelles et roulettes dorées, ainsi que de fleurons à froid aux entrenerfs et de pièces de titre et de tomaison de maroquin noir. Filets dorés en encadrement des plats. Roulette dorée sur les coupes et les coiffes. Roulette dorée en encadrement des contreplats. Toutes tranches marbrées. Bel exemplaire. La Bibliothèque d'Apollodore, grammairien athénien du 1er siècle avant J.C. est une compilation de récits mythologiques, de diverses théogonies et de très anciennes légendes thébaines et attiques. L'oeuvre serait en définitive d'un autre auteur, qu'on nomme le Pseudo Apollodore, pour le distinguer du mythographe Apollodore d'Athènes ; elle représente le plus vaste répertoire mythologique et une incroyable synthèse des fables de l'Antiquité en se bornant à une explication claire et simple des différentes légendes et mythes, depuis l'origine du monde jusqu'aux héros de la guerre de Troie. Clavier en donne une bonne édition critique avec de nombreuses notes éclairantes.

        Fragments of oak from Horatio Nelson's flagship, the H.M.S. Victory in a contemporary Sheffield silver box with exceptional provenance

      n.p., [1805]. 5" x 3" x 1.75". "A Georgian Sheffield-silver box, featuring an 1805 silver crown affixed to the top bearing a bust profile of George III in bas relief, 5"" x 3"" x 1.75"", housing a small collection of five wood fragments, ranging in size from, 1"" x .5"" to 5"" x 2.25"", recovered during the restoration of Horatio Nelson's flagship, the H.M.S. Victory. To the inside of the box's lid is affixed a paper label bearing the following text in ink: ""Oak from HMS VICTORY"" and ""1805."" On the bottom right of the paper label there is a second date: ""October 1925"" which may indicate the date of the original sale by the Society of Nautical Research, which sold off obsolete parts of THE H.M.S. Victory in order to fund the ship's restoration. Wear and expected tarnishing of box and the coin, wood fragments bear some wear consistent with age. Of great interest is the largest fragment which is finely beveled at the top and appears to have been recovered from the executive quarters of the ship. The Sheffield box also contains a small white candle measuring 2.75"" long which may have also come from the H.M.S. Victory. Following the battle of Trafalgar, the H.M.S. Victory was badly damaged and could not return under the power of its own sail. After delivering Nelson's body to London, the Victory was repaired and remained in active service until 1812 when she was moored at Portsmouth. The ship served as a training ship for some time but by the turn of the 20th century, it had deteriorated so badly that in 1910 a group of enthusiasts established the Society for Nautical Research to help fund restoration of the ship which was finally completed well after the close of the Second World War (the last repairs were not completed until 2005, just in time for the bicentennial of Trafalgar). Today, it is the oldest commissioned warship in the world and attracts over 350,000 visitors as a museum ship. To help fund its restoration efforts, the Society for Nautical Research took unusable parts, including nails and copper sheathing, and melted them down to be refashioned as souvenirs. Provenance: Society for Nautical Research; obtained by the War Museum from a prominent British naval family collection, which had additionally featured relics from the noted Benjamin Hill Collection?"that holding included one of the largest swatches of Nelson's ensign that flew at Trafalgar in private hands. Some of these relics were featured in a recently-published peer-reviewed article, a copy of which has been included for reference."

(Reminiscences, 2.949) and that her country house library was, in its day, surpassed only by those of Earl Spencer, the duke of Devonshire, and the duke of Buckingham. Seymour De Ricci wrote that she was â??England's earliest female bibliophileâ?? (De Ricci, 141).â? Freeman, Bibliotheca Fictiva, 503.

        Document Signed

      This Revolutionary War general of checkered reputation resigned twice during the course of the war, then was involved in shady negotiations with the Spanish governor of Louisiana to separate the Kentucky area and turn it over to Spain; he fought against the Indians, was the officer to whom the British handed over Detroit, and became the first governor of the Louisiana Territory (1805-07); he survived two court martials, one regarding his support of Aaron Burr badly tarnishing his reputation. DS, 4pp (lettersheet), 7 3/4" X 12½, Woodford County, Commonwealth of Virginia, 1792 January 6. Very good. Mild age toning and bit of foxing, with some small separations at some fold lines, but overall clean and quite legible, penned on extra heavy stock. Handsomely penned indenture, chock full of repetitive formulaic boilerplate legalese, in which Wilkinson and his wife Anne sell to William Murray Jr. for "the sum of twenty pounds current money of Virginia... Two lotts of ground in the town of Frankfort...." (Murray, according to one history, "came to Kentucky soon after the State was admitted to the Union.... He is described as "a bold and eloquent man, an aggressive politician and a brilliant speaker; a man of whom his contemporaries never spoke except in terms of unqualified admiration and 'was probably the most accomplished scholar among all the eminent men of Kentucky at that day.' He was a lawyer of sufficient ability to cope successfully with such men as George Nicholas, John Breckinridge and Henry Clay....") Signed large and bold by Wilkinson at the bottom of the second page, where he also signs below his signature for wife Ann. Alongside each signature is a red wax seal. At lower right, this transaction has been signed by three witnesses: John Hughes, Richard Thomas and GABRIEL MAUPIN (Revolutionary War officer, 1720-94, a Williamsburg tavernkeeper, saddler and harness maker who served as keeper of the Public Magazine). The third and fourth leaves, in addition to the usual docketing, contain an odd variety of affidavits: First is a statement signed by Michael Rappele, alderman from the "City of Philadelphia," dated February 23, 1816, testifying that James Wilkinson appeared before him, "the Grantor in the foregoing deed... and acknowledged the same to be his act and deed...." Second is a statement from Willis A. Lee, of the "State of Kentucky General Court," dated May 11, 1816, "hereby certify[ing] that this deed and the certificates of acknowledgments thereon endorsed was produced to me... and truly admitted to record in my office...." And third and last is a lengthier endorsement filling half of the fourth leaf and signed by ROBERT WHARTON (1757-1834, the longest-serving mayor in Philadelphia history, elected fifteen times between 1798 and 1824), from "City of Philadelphia" and dated March 27, 1816, noting that Wilkinson "acknowledged the same to be his act and deed and desired to might be recorded as such...." Boldly signed by Wharton and with large circular flute-edged paper seal intact. A couple of months after Wilkinson signed this deed (January 6, 1792) he was commissioned a brigadier general under General Anthony Wayne (March 1792), whom he disliked and attempted to discredit; and a couple of months further along (June 1792) the Commonwealth of Virginia county from which this deed was written (Woodford County), along with several other counties, became the new state of Kentucky. The ever-scheming Wilkinson had been conspiring with Esteban Miro, Spanish governor of Louisiana (on whose payroll it turns out he was listed), to make sure the U.S. handed over its interest in Kentucky to Spain. An intriguing and curious document. Why Wilkinson pursued the endorsements appended to the deed 24 years after the sale is uncertain; in 1816 Wilkinson had just published an autobiography, "Memoirs of My Own Times" -- according to one source, "three confused volumes of documents which are as significant for what they omit as for what they contain" -- and was living on a plantation below New Orleans. Truly a provocative item worth further research. Accompanied by a small (4½" X 5½") 19th century engraved portrait of Wilkinson in profile within a 2¼" circle -- heavy stock and unusual in that it is glazed, with a heavy plate mark. Could it be that Wilkinson sold this land in '92 because he thought his scheme to place this territory under Spanish control might soon come to fruition?

        An original powder bucket from Horatio Nelson's flagship, the H.M.S. Victory with exceptional provenance

      n.p., c. 1805. 10.5"(ht.), 10.25" (diam.). "A leather ship's powder bucket, 10.5"" tall, 10.25"" diameter, with two iron rings at top, affixed with leather straps that tuck under an iron rim and affixed with rivets which additionally hold together the seam and bottom portion, and boldly painted in gilt along side: ""H.M.S VICTORY / GR / 1805"". Examination under a microscope also reveals use-wear marks overall, non-machine-era tool marks, anvil-forged iron and copper rivets and what is called ?good dirt? and tiny cobwebs in the crevasses consistent with it being of the Trafalgar era, gilt lettering likely repainted at a later date. Following the battle of Trafalgar, the H.M.S. Victory was badly damaged and could not return under the power of its own sail. After delivering Nelson's body to London, the Victory was repaired and remained in active service until 1812 when she was moored at Portsmouth. The ship served as a training ship for some time but by the turn of the 20th century, it had deteriorated so badly that in 1910 a group of enthusiasts established the Society for Nautical Research to help fund restoration of the ship which was finally completed well after the close of the Second World War (the last repairs were not completed until 2005, just in time for the bicentennial of Trafalgar). Today, it is the oldest commissioned warship in the world and attracts over 350,000 visitors as a museum ship. To help fund its restoration efforts, the Society for Nautical Research took unusable parts, including nails and copper sheathing, and melted them down to be refashioned as souvenirs. Provenance: Society for Nautical Research; obtained by the War Museum from a prominent British naval family collection, which had additionally featured relics from the noted Benjamin Hill Collection?"that holding included one of the largest swatches of Nelson's ensign that flew at Trafalgar in private hands. Some of these relics were featured in a recently-published peer-reviewed article, a copy of which has been included for reference."

The only known contemporary publication describing the failed attempt at establishing a settlement at Port Phillip under the command of Lieutenant-Governor David Collins. James Hingston Tuckey (1776?-1816) was an Irish naval officer appointed first lieutenant of HMS Calcutta in 1803. Together with the storeship Ocean, the Calcutta set out for Australia with free settlers and about 300 convicts. The settlers remained in the area of Port Phillip Bay for about half a year before the settlement had to be abandoned due to hostility from the Aborgines, lack of water, swampy land, and difficulties of navigation. During these months, Tuckey was nonetheless able to survey the harbour of Port Phillip, as well as carefully examining the surrounding coast and countryside. While part of the expedition continued onwards to Hobart, Tuckey decided to return to England via Sydney, arriving in London in the autumn of 1804. The failure of this expedition meant that Port Phillip remained unsettled for more than twenty years, being used only occasionally as a harbour by the whalers and sealers of Bass Strait.
