        Voyages Pittoresques dans les Quatre Parties du Monde , ou troisième édition de l'encyclopédie des voyages, contenant les costumes des principaux peuples de l'Europe, de l'Asie, de l'Afrique, de l'Amérique, et des Sauvages de la mer du Sud

      Paris: Veuve Hocquart, 1806. Two volumes, small quarto, with six folding maps coloured in outline and a splendid series of 160 handcoloured aquatint costume plates (including frontispieces to each of the four sections); a fine uncut copy with generous margins in contemporary half crimson morocco and glazed boards. Peoples of the world and their costumes. A fine set of this colourful work on peoples of the world and their costumes. The wonderful series of 160 coloured plates includes nine plates depicting peoples of the Pacific islands and Kamchatka derived from the published voyage accounts of James Cook. The coloured plates are by Lachaussée and Mixelle after drawings by Grasset de Saint-Sauveur; the four frontispieces feature idealised maidens representing Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas. Most of the vibrantly handcoloured aquatint plates depict two figures, male and female, dressed in the native costume of their lands. Of special interest are the plates of Pacific peoples, including Tahiti, Hawaii, Palau, New Zealand, Tanna and the Marquesas (including the island of Saint-Christine). The Kamchatka plate also derives from Cook's third voyage account. Bernard Smith discusses the importance of Saint-Sauveur's costume studies in disseminating impressions of exotic lands, especially the Pacific islands: 'The engravings published in Cook's Voyages provided new visual information about many previously unknown peoples, and greatly enlarged Europe's knowledge of the family of man. Dr. Joppien has shown how important encyclopaedias of costume and 'gallery of man' books were in this process of popular dissemination. But as artists copied the engravings so they altered them still further in the direction of European pre-conceptions, the anthropological and ethnographic intentions of the originals being diverted increasingly to fulfil the demands of taste and the intrinsic needs of decoration.' (European Vision and the South Pacific p. 113). Born in Montreal in 1757, Jacques Grasset de Saint-Sauveur was a French diplomat who served in Egypt amongst other postings. A prolific author and illustrator, he made a long career of studying and depicting the costumes and habits of the peoples of the world, and consistently derived his work from published voyage accounts including those of Cook, La Pérouse, Wilson and other celebrated voyagers. He died in Paris in 1810, his lifetime coinciding with a unprecedented age of discovery in the Pacific. Saint-Sauveur openly acknowledged his use of voyage accounts as they added authenticity to his depictions of exotic peoples. Overall 18 pages of text accompany the Pacific plates in Voyages Pittoresques; these descriptions are rich in references to well-known explorers such as Cook as well as less prominent figures such as Mendana, the Forsters, and Marchand. Published in 1806, Voyages Pittoresques is derived from Saint-Sauveur's successful Encyclopédie des Voyages of 1794. It was issued in parts; Forbes describes the copy held by the Turnbull Library with the original wrappers for one such separately sold part bound in (and priced at 3 francs), while the six maps were likewise issued discretely in printed wrappers. This is a particularly attractive and well-preserved example of this colourful and picturesque work, in an excellent French binding of the period.

        A Catalogue of the Royal and Noble Authors of England , Scotland, and Ireland; with Lists of their Works

      John Scott, London 1806 - Five volumes, octavo; with 149 engraved portrait plates; an excellent set in a fine contemporary binding of dark green straight grain morocco, ornately gilt, spines heavily gilt with wide raised bands, gilt dentelles on crimson endpapers, gilt edges; armorial bookplates. A very attractive set of this major literary work by Walpole: although his literary reputation rests principally upon his voluminous correspondence, he also produced a number of substantial books, including this with its useful collection of biographical accounts and engraved portraits. As a carefully researched and honest assessment of the literary contributions of a significant number of lesser-known writers (figures whose rank in society was generally greater than their reputations and abilities as authors), the work is of particular value. The set offered here is a very appealing example of a highly decorated binding from the early 19th century, obviously bound in such a way as to suggest a tome of considerable importance.

Four volumes. 19th century marbled paper over flexible boards with large labels titled in manuscript to uppers. Occasional annotations. Bindings slightly worn. Minor browning, foxing and staining. In very good condition overall. . "The largest portion of Spohr's chamber music was for strings alone, ranging from 19 unsurpassed duos for two violins to four masterly, and largely unemulated, double string quartets. These, together with the 36 string quartets (and several other works for the same combination), seven string quintets and the String Sextet of 1848, display a number of common features. Spohr's own mastery of the violin is evident in all of them, and their technical difficulties, together with the particular style of performance necessary to secure their full effect, may partly explain their infrequent performance. The quartets, especially, fall into two distinct categories: solo quartets in the tradition of Rode (often entitled "Quatuor brillant"), which are essentially violin concertos with string trio accompaniment, and true quartets where the interest is more evenly divided between the instruments. At its most baneful, Spohr's virtuosity induced him to slip into predictable passage-work in the linking sections between the main tonal centres of his sonata form movement... There are, however, many examples of brilliance without vapidity in these works and his imagination seems particularly to have been stimulated by less usual combinations."

Paris: Baudouin, Printer to the Institut National, and Garnery, The Widow Courcier,, 1806-1810, 1821. [Together with]: Recueil d'observations géodésiques, astronomiques et physiques, exécutées par ordre du Bureau des Longitudes de France, en Espagne, en France, en Angleterre et en Écosse, pour déterminer la variation de la pesanteur et des degrés terrestres sur le prolongement du Méridien de Paris, faisant suite au troisième volume de la Base du système métrique.

With 30 engraved plates, including 2 in the second title and 23 folding, and numerous tables in the texts. Bindings expertly rebacked to style, the occasional light spot but overall exceptionally fresh. An excellent set. First edition of Delambre and Méchain's famous report with Jean Baptiste Biot and Dominique François Arago's incredibly scarce continuation of their work, which is also a first edition. In the wake of the French Revolution the Académie des Sciences set up a commission to ponder the question of establishing standards of measurements, which had been previously attempted but to no avail as units of measurements still varied according to countries and even regions or trade. "In 1791 [the commission] reported that fundamental unit of length should be derived from a dimension of the earth: it should be the tenth-millionth part of a quadrant of the earth's meridian extending between Dunkirk and Barcelona [...]. The Constituent Assembly set up a general commission of weights and measures to carry these proposals into effect and in 1795 a law was passed introducing the metric system into France with provisional standards. The astronomers Jean Baptiste Joseph Delambre and Pierre François André Méchain (1744–1805) were charged with the task of measuring accurately the newly adopted length along the meridian arc between Dunkirk and Barcelona […] The length of a metre (equalling 39.37 English inches) was marked on a platinum bar, and the unit of weight was also constructed of platinum, being the weight of a cubic decimetre, or litre, of pure water at its maximum density" (PMM). This mammoth task was finally completed in 1806 by Jean Baptiste Biot of the Bureau des Longitudes, assisted by Dominique François Arago and in 1821 their findings were published as a fourth volume continuation to Delambre and Méchain. The platinum bars used by the four scientists "remained the basic standards until 1875 and are still preserved in Paris" (ibid.)

        Oratio dominica in clv linguas versa et exoticis characteribus plerumque expressa.

      Parma, Typis Bodonianis 1806.. Folio. (8), XIX, (5), XIX, (5), 20 SS., (2), CCXLVIII S. Pappband mit montiertem Rücken- und Deckelschild., fester Einband. Tadelloses Exemplar von Bodonis berühmtem Schriftmusterbuch aus der Privatbibliothek der (Ex-) Kaiserin und Gemahlin Napoleon Bonapartes, Marie Louise von Oesterreich (1791-1847), Grossherzogin von Parma, Piacenza und Guastalla. Als typographisches Musterbuch wird das in 155 verschiedenen Sprachen aus 215 orientalischen und lateinischen Drucktypen gesetzte Vaterunser-Werk nur vom postum veröffentlichten legendären 'Manuale Tipografico' von 1818 übertroffen.Die französische Widmung auf dem Spiegel des Vorderdeckels stammt vom adeligen Offizier und Diplomaten Adam Albert von Neipperg: "Offerte respectueusement a sa Majeste l'Imperatrice Marie Louise, Duchesse de Parma, Plaisance et Guastalla par son tres humble et rees obeissant serviteur ... Comte de Neipperg, Parme, le 21 Juillet 1815 ". Von Neipperg, der im März 1815 zum Oberstallmeister und Oberbefehlshaber der Truppen von Marie-Luise, Lieblingstochter des österreichischen Kaisers Franz I., ernannt worden war, vertrat am Wiener Kongress die Interessen von Marie-Louise und des Grossherzogtums Parma, das ihr als Abfindung nach der Trennung von Napoleon zuerkannt wurde. Nach dem Tode seiner ersten Frau 1821, ging Adam Albert von Neipperg mit Marie-Louise eine morganatische Ehe ein, aus der vier Kinder hervorgingen, wobei das erste (Albertine) bereits am 1. Mai 1817 geboren wurde. - Das 1806 von Giambattista Bodoni (1740-1813) ganz im Geiste des Klassizismus vollendete Buch enthält viele nichteuropäische Uebersetzungen des Vaterunser. Im Vorwort weist der Drucker der Könige und König der Drucker' darauf hin, dass er hier, im Gegensatz zu anderen vorausgegangenen Vaterunser-Drucken die mit exotischen Versionen in Kupferdruck gedruckt wurden, nun alles mit beweglichen Lettern vollendet habe: "les lettres sont toutes mobiles et separees".

        Sixième JEU DE CARTES GEOGRAPHIQUES, Orné de figures gravées avec soin et représentant les différens peuples de la terre dans le costume particulier à chacun d'eux; destiné à l'instruction et à l'amusement de la jeunesse des deux sexes. Nouvelle édition revue et corrigée.

      Contained in the original box (112 x 78 x 33 mm.) of marbled paper over thick card with paste-down illustrated label on one surface. Containing 48 cards (103 x 68 mm) with engraved cartouche and text (each card representing a different region; a folding copper-engraved map of the world (299 x 185 mm) by Tardieu, 'Planisphère ou Carte réduite du Globe Terrestre. A l'usage du Jeu de Cartes Geographiques. Lacks the single sheet of rules. Box rubbed and worn; cards and map excellent. Card XLVI is dedicated to Nouvelle-Hollande, but also mentions New Guinea. It is decorated with an engraving of a fierce some looking warrior wearing a headdress and animal skins and brandishing a spear. This illustration does not accord with the description of Australian Aborigines printed on this card, which alleges that the indigenous inhabitants of New Holland are, 'Without clothing, without industry, without habitation, they have nothing for a bed but the earth and nothing for nourishment except for shellfish which they gather at the edge of the ocean'. The text also mentions the English settlement at Botany Bay and the transportation of convicts. Card XLVIII is dedicated to Terres Polaires et Australes, and is decorated with an engraving of a bare-breasted maiden (possibly inspired by illustrations of Tahitian women). The text states that New Zealand is inhabited by cannibals and that the savages of New Guinea and New Holland live in a primitive state owing to their lack of intelligence; 'Some geographers consider New Holland to be a continent.... Considered as an island, it is the largest on earth, approximately 300,000 square leagues.' A rare children's game from the first decade of the nineteenth century and one of the very first to feature the peoples of Australasia.

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM COMMODORE EDWARD PREBLE TO NAVY PURSER NATHANIEL LYDE, AUTHORIZING HIM TO PROCURE MEN AND PAY NECESSARY EXPENSES OF OFFICERS FOR THE U.S. NAVY. WITH A FURTHER LETTER OF AUTHORIZATION, ALSO IN PREBLE'S HAND, TO NAVY AGENT SAMUEL BROWN, COPIED OUT FOR THE USE OF PURSER LYDE]

      Portland, Me. Feb. 8, 1806.. Portland, Me. Feb. 8, 1806.. [1],[1]pp., autograph letters, signed, on a folded folio sheet. A bit of old tape residue along the edge of the fourth page (which was used for addressing and docketing). Near fine. A pair of letters, on a single sheet, in the hand of Commodore Edward Preble, written just a year before his death, in his role supervising shipbuilding activities for the United States Navy in Portland, Maine. In the letters Preble authorizes the procuring of petty officers for two of the Navy's newest bomb ketches, the USS Etna and Vesuvius. The main letter is written from Preble to U.S. Navy Purser Nathaniel Lyde at Boston. Preble writes: "I have rec'd your letter of the 5th inst. You may furnish the armorer with 30 Doll. and it shall be re- imbursed you here [the final seven letters of this sentence are crossed out]. I enclose you an order on Samuel Brown Esq. for 500 Doll. to procure men and pay necessary expenses of officers &c. for which you will be held accountable to the Navy Department. The money is not to be expended without my approbation." On the verso of this page Preble has copied out for Lyde a letter he wrote to Navy Agent Samuel Brown, which reads: "Sir, there is wanted five hundred dollars for the purpose of procuring petty officers & men for the U.S. Bomb Ketches Etna & Vesuvius and for boats no. 11 & 12 at Portland and near my post for which I am held accountable to the U.S. Navy Departments." Commodore Edward Preble (1761- 1807) was born at Falmouth (now Portland, Maine). He joined the Massachusetts state navy in 1780, and participated in battles against the Royal Navy and Loyalist privateers. For a brief time he was held prisoner by the British aboard the prison ship Jersey. After the war he engaged as a master and supercargo of merchants' vessels sailing to Europe, Africa, and the West Indies. By the time of the "Quasi War" in the 1790s he was eager to join the American navy, and was commissioned a lieutenant in 1798, and was promoted to captain the following year. In 1803-1804, Preble was commander of the U.S. Mediterranean Squadron, arguably the most important command in the navy at the time, and his heroics against the Barbary states are what made his reputation. He fought successfully against Morocco and Tripoli and engineered, with Stephen Decatur, the destruction of the captured American frigate Philadelphia. After his return to the United States he supervised the construction of gunboats and served as an adviser to the Navy. A nice pair of Edward Preble letters, from late in the Commodore's esteemed career.

        Die Antike als Zitat

      . Bleistift auf Papier, 23,0 x 31,3 cm. Wie viele seiner Zeitgenossen war Wallis ein glühender Verehrer der klassisch-idealen Landschaften Gaspard Dughets. Besonders englische Reisende während der Grand Tour verspürten die Anziehungskraft der idealen Italienvision des Künstlers. Der Wunsch, einen Teil davon mit in die Heimat zu nehmen, führte zu einem sprunghaft ansteigenden Bedarf an solchen klassischen Landschaftsbildern, in denen Natur und vermeintlich antike Architektur eine heroische Symbiose eingehen. Wallis bekam seinen Zugang zu Dughet, aber auch Poussin und Lorrain, wohl maßgeblich durch Jakob Philipp Hackert vermittelt, der selbst nicht müde wurde, seine eigenen Gemälde mit Anleihen aus jener klassischen Landschaftsschule des 17. Jahrhunderts zu bestücken. Hierin folgten ihm Johann Christian Reinhart ebenso wie Joseph Anton Koch und viele weitere Künstler, die nicht zuletzt der vorherrschenden Mode Rechnung trugen, was auch Wallis zu großem Ansehen, besonders in seinem Heimatland, verhelfen sollte. Die vorliegende Zeichnung von Wallis reiht sich in diese Rezeption ein und dürfte daher auch während seiner Zeit in Italien entstanden sein, die erst nach achtzehn Jahren mit seiner Rückreise nach England 1806 endete. Bemerkenswert ist hierbei, dass Wallis nicht etwa eine ideale Landschaft zum Motiv wählt, sondern ein Detail einer solchen Landschaft in das Zentrum der Komposition rückt. Was sonst nur als Architekturstaffage den Hintergrund der großen Landschaftskompositionen belebt, erhält hier einen eigenständigen Charakter. Noch dazu wird das Aufeinandertreffen von Mensch und Natur in die Architektur selbst verlagert. Die Figuren finden in dem Arkadengang einen Schutzraum, von dem aus die Natur selbst wie ein Schauspiel betrachtet werden kann. Dadurch löst sie als Bühne jene Natur ab, in der sich der Mensch in den klassischen Landschaftsbildern sonst zu behaupten hatte. Das Gewichtverhältnis verschiebt sich und der Mensch wird vom Protagonisten zum selbstbewussten Zuschauer, der die Natur domestiziert hat. Was sonst also nur als fernes Zitat einer imaginierten Antike in den Bildern als idealisierte Verankerung in einer verlorenen Vergangenheit auftauchte, das belebt Wallis zwar als Typus nicht neu, transportiert es aber in eine gegenwärtige Realität. Denn es fehlt nicht viel und man kann das verschachtelte Gebäude auch als Landhaus erkennen, wie es in Italien um 1800 durchaus anzutreffen war. Dabei trägt auch sein Zeichenstil zu dieser belebenden Annäherung bei. Durch die charakteristische Struktur der Schraffierung und durch die breiten, teils wiederholten Umrisslinien erreicht er in der Monochromie eine gewisse Farbigkeit der verschiedenen Grautöne, was zur Belebung der Architektur beiträgt.

        Letters Addressed to the Daughter of a Nobleman, on the Formation of Religious and Moral Principle

      London: Printed for T. Cadell and W. Davies, 1806 London: Printed for T. Cadell and W. Davies, 1806 Second edition, published the same year as the first, and from the same sheets. Contemporary tree calf, gilt spines with black morocco labels. Two volumes, twelvemo. Joints and corners lightly rubbed, a few leaves lightly toned, contemporary armorial bookplate of a Dr. John Lind in each volume (foxed). A very good, attractive copy. Elizabeth Hamilton (1758-1816) was "one of the earliest British pioneers of the theories of Pestalozzi" (Stewart & McCann, p. 14), and was much admired by Maria Edgeworth. Following the success of her Letters on the Elementary Principles of Education (1801-2), she wrote this series of letters, addressed to her own former pupil, the daughter of an aristocratic family in Essex. Hamilton never attempted to challenge the traditional domestic role of women. Her novel, Memoirs of Modern Philosophers (1800), attacks Godwin's Political Justice and Wollstonecraft's Rights of Women. She also wrote social criticism, somewhat in the style of Goldsmith's Citizen of the World, and books on Scottish manners and customs, which earned the praise of Sir Walter Scott.
