        IN MORTE DI CARLO IMBONATI Versi di Alessandro Manzoni a Giulia Beccaria sua madre.

      Brescia, per Nicolò Bettoni, 1806 In-8 p. (mm. 202x125), bross. muta coeva, pp. 15. E?' questo il primo libro del Manzoni, allora poco più che ventenne e da poco stabilitosi a Parigi con la madre. Ne fu occasione la morte di Carlo Imbonati (Parigi, 1805), al quale donna Giulia Beccaria si era unita, dopo la separazione dal marito. Dopo la conversione il Manzoni cercò di far dimenticare questa operetta in lode del Conte Imbonati e ne proibì la diffusione. Pubblicato per la prima volta a Parigi nel 1806, questo carme riscosse un notevole interesse tanto che nello stesso anno, in Italia, apparvero ben tre edizioni: a Milano, a Roma (in 50 copie) e a Brescia. Cfr. Vismara,192 - Parenti ?"Rarità Bibl. dell?'800?",I, p. 163 per la prima ediz. parigina. Fresco esempl. intonso, su carta velina cilindrata, ben conservato .

        ALGIERS: Original Certificate on the Printed Form of the British Chancery Office in Algiers, Appointing Lewis Tonna as Blanckley's Secretary].

      Algiers 1806 - Algiers, 9 October 1806. Oblong Folio (ca. 25x39 cm). Official printed form of the British Chancery Office in Algiers, with woodcut arms at head; finished in manuscript in secretarial hand and signed by Blanckley in the right lower corner. Brown ink on laid paper. With official red wax seal on the left margin. Overall a very good document. "We, H. S. Blanckley Esquire, His Britannic Majesty's agent and consul general in this City and Kingdom, certify that We do constitute and appoint Lewis Tonna Esqr. Our Secretary and do hereby Order that he is to be obeyed and acknowledged as such by all and every Person whom this may concern". Issued at the British Chancery Office at Algiers in 1806 and signed off by the then consul general Henry Stanyford Blanckley, this document appointed Lewis Tonna as his secretary. Blanckley, an army Mayor, had taken part in the siege of Gibraltar in 1782 before a nineteen year stint as consul in the Balearic Islands. He was the British Consul General in Algiers in 1806-1812 and went on to play a role in shaping British policy towards the Barbary Coast. Lewis Hippolytus Joseph Tonna (d. 1828) later became a British vice-consul in Algiers and at Bona, vice-consul for Spain and consul for the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies in Liverpool. He married Blanckley's daughter Maria, and their son Lewis Tonna (1812-1857) was a polyglot, fellow of the Society of Antiquaries, fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, and evangelical protestant campaigner.

        Dell' Castello dell' Acova Givlia

      Paris 1806 - John Wilton-Ely 536 and 537No watermark is presentThere is a second smaller engraving with the following measurementsImage Size: 140mm x 189mmPlatemark Size: 145mm x 193mmThis print was published between 1806-1833. Giovanni Battista Piranesi was one of the leading figures in the development of the neoclassical style in the late 18th Century. As architect, archaeologist, artist, designer, collector, and antiquities dealer, he produced a series of etchings and engravings depicting the glories of ancient Rome. These fine prints served as source material for other architects and designers. He was born in Venice on the 4th October 1720. The son of a stone-mason, he was educated as an architect under his maternal uncle Matto Lucchesi and under Carlo Zucchi. In 1740 Piranesi left Venice for Rome, there he studied etching under Giuseppe Vasi. He appears to have had little success in these early years in Rome and as his father was unable to continue his allowance returned to Venice in 1744. He was soon, however, encouraged to return to Rome by Giuseppe Wagner, a successful engraver and publisher of Venice. This time he achieved success, and a constant series of works, illustrating architecture and antiquities, issued from his studio until his death in 1778. His output in etched plates is enormous (about 1000 numbers in all). While he achieved a work of magnitude in pictorial records of Roman monuments of antiquity and of the Renaissance, and gave immense archæological, antiquarian, and topographical value to this work, the artistic quality always predominates. He was fond of peopling his ruins with Callot-like figures, and "like Callot makes great use of the swelling line" (Hind). He had two sons and a daughter, all of whom helped him in his work and after his death carried on his publications in Rome and Paris. They were Francesco (born 1748 or 1756; died 1810), Pietro (who lived till after 1807) and Laura (born 1750). His position in Rome and in Europe after 1760 was a prominent one. He was well-known figure to the wealthy English visitors in Rome and was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1757. Most of his life was passed in Rome, etching, writing, publishing, and directing a workshop in which the restoration and sale of antiques played a considerable part.He was famous for his poetic views of Rome and also his fantastic imaginary interiors. His skills, allied to his deep knowledge of archaeology, provided the substance for his Vedute (Views), a series of 135 etchings of ancient and contemporary Rome, published from 1745 onwards, which established the popular mental image of the city. Vasi.et Ornamenti Antichi was a collection of 110 etchings documenting large sculptural vases, together with other antiquities excavated (and in some cases created) in Italy in the 18th century. The prints were initially separately issued and sold by Piranesi over a period of several years and subsequently collected in two folio volumes, each with its own title page, in 1778. They illustrate a wide range of genuine antiquities, as well as Piranesi's own collections, from utilitarian objects such as cinerary urns, lamps, and sarcophagi to monumental vases. The plates in Vasi often included text by Piranesi with information about where the objects were discovered and their contemporary location, and the prints bore dedications to his patrons, colleagues, visitors and influential people. He believed absolutely in the supremacy of Roman over Greek architecture, an argument he expounded most forcefully in his Della magnificenza ed architettura dei Romani (On the Magnificence of Roman Architecture, 1761). his romanticized views and imaginary interiors had a profound effect on stage designers, painters of capricci such as Hubert Robert, and even writers: William Beckford, the author of the Gothic novel and Vathek . In the 20th century his imaginary interiors have been admired by the Surrealists . Reference: John Wilton-Ely. Giovanni Battista Pi

"Sénancour étudie l'amour et les questions qui s'y rattachent en dehors des idées répandues et consacrées par les législateurs religieux et politiques. La cause du divorce est plaidée avec talent. Le style est d'une élégante simplicité, d'une fermeté virile, qualités qui n'étaient pas suffisantes pour le rendre bien populaire ; mais l'auteur creuse si profondément et si hardiment son sujet qu'on peut reconnaître en lui l'un des précurseurs du socialisme en fait de questions morales, bien entendu. Il était pour le surplus contre-révolutionnaire, et il avait été obligé d'émigrer." Gay I, 810. Clouzot, Guide du bibliophile français 252 : "Rare et recherché." Bon exemplaire.

        In His State of the Union Address, Thomas Jefferson Commends Lewis and Clark for Their Successful Explorations

      Hartford, CT 1806 - Newspaper. Connecticut Courant. Hartford, Conn., December 10, 1806. 4 pp, 12 1/2 x 20 1/2 in. After purchasing the Louisiana Territory in 1803, President Jefferson sent his former personal secretary, Meriwether Lewis and Army officer William Clark to explore the huge tract of land. In his December 2, 1806, State of the Union address, Jefferson praised the expedition's success. His address, in full on page 3, includes this important paragraph:Excerpt:"The expedition of Messrs. Lewis and Clarke, for exploring the river Missouri, and the best communication from that to the Pacific Ocean, has had all the success which could have been expected. They have traced the Missouri nearly to its source, descended the Columbia to the Pacific Ocean. . . . and it is but justice to say that Messrs. Lewis and Clarke, and their brave companions, have, by this arduous service, deserved well of their country."Meriwether Lewis (1774 - 1809) was best known for leading, along with William Clark, the expedition that explored the Louisiana Purchase from 1804-1806. He was a largely self-taught naturalist and outdoorsman, and soldier in the Army's First Infantry Regiment. In 1801, he joined Thomas Jefferson's staff as his personal secretary. In 1804, Jefferson picked his old friend and fellow Virginian to lead the transcontinental expedition. Jefferson named him Governor of the Louisiana Territory in 1807. Lingering effects of wounds suffered returning from the expedition dogged him until he died under mysterious circumstances, apparently by suicide, in 1809.William Clark (1770 - 1838) joined the Kentucky territory's volunteer militia and fought in the Northwest Indian War in 1789. He was promoted to captain in 1790, and played a decisive role in the Battle of Fallen Timbers, victory in which brought an end to the entire war in 1794. He is best known for his role leading, along with Meriwether Lewis, the expedition exploring the Louisiana Purchase in 1804. He was later governor of the Missouri territory in 1812, and Superintendant of Indian Affairs in 1822.ConditionVery good. Disbound. Subscriber's name inked on front page.
