      Bonn: Chez N. Simrock... Paris: H. Simrock, professeur, marchand de musique et d'instrumens, rue du Mont Blanc No. 373. Chaussée d'Antin près le Boulevard. [PN 444], [ca. 1806]. Folio. 19th century half-calf marbled boards, paper title label to spine. 1f. (title), [1] (blank), [2] (Personaggi), 3-123, [i] (blank), [i] (title to Act II), 124-223, [i] (blank), [i] (title to Act III), 224-365 pp. Engraved. With text in Italian. From the collection of the noted German music historian and author of the first major biography of Mozart, Otto Jahn (1813-69), with his bookplate "Inter Folia Fructus" to front pastedown and with an autograph entry to p. 363 (the word "coda" written twice in ink in his fine, distinctive hand to outer margin). With some additional pencilled markings, cancels, etc., possibly in Jahn's hand. With small handstamp "Karl Tittel Kantor und Organist" in purple ink to title and following leaf. Binding worn and scuffed; spine chipped at head and tail; upper detached; lower hinge splitting. Occasional minor blemishes, but a very good copy overall. First Edition, 6th issue. Scarce. Haberkamp p. 165. Hoboken II, 108 (another issue). Hirsch II, 654. RISM M4187. Overture and 32 numbers, including 2 ballets. Libretto by Gianbattista Varesco after Antoine Danchet's "Idomenée," German version by Andreas Schachtner (1780). Mozart's setting of Varesco's libretto (based on a French opera by Danchet and Campra) was first performed on January 29, 1781 at the Residenz Theater in Munich. "Having completed nine operatic works, Mozart, aged twenty-four, was commissioned to write an opera by the Elector Karl Theodor of Bavaria, formerly of Mannheim, who had moved to Munich in January 1778. He began work in Salzburg in October 1780 and moved to Munich in November to complete the work with the singers, several of whom he knew from Mannheim days. The opera was successful but there were no further performances in other houses and the amateur performance in Vienna took place five years later." Robbins Landon: The Mozart Companion, p. 248. "Idomeneo sprang from a specific tradition and far outstripped it. The happy auspices under which it was created brought forth from Mozart a work so demanding that it could hardly be performed elsewhere. Even the Mannheim-Munich forces were probably not ready for its boldness. "Magnificent," "expressive," "novel," "powerful," "and "strange," its first auditors called it, with the dominating impression certainly the last. For all but a few the profundities of this opera eroica were too deep. In the decade Mozart had left to live, it had already became a work dispossessed. This is perhaps one of the reasons why he loved it especially among all his works." Heartz: Mozart's Operas, p. 34. "There may not be here the delicate psychological detail that we find in Figaro and Cosi fan tutti, or the sublime naturalness and simplicity of Die Zauberflote -- these would both have been completely foreign to the general style of the opera -- but there is a monumental strength and a white heat of passion that we find in this early work of Mozart's and shall never find again. Idomeneo is the first and last 'opera seria' that represents the complete and mature Mozart." Dent: Mozart's Operas (2nd ed.), p. 45.

        Eisenberg in Böhmen.

      - Feder in Grau und Schwarz, grau laviert, auf bräunlichem Velin, verso von fremder Hand bezeichnet „Eisenberg in Böhmen von Pf. Manes". 16,8:22,3 cm. Mit wenigen Stockflecken; verso am Oberrand und in der Mitte Reste alter Beklebung. Der tschechische Maler Eisenberg bildete sich autodidaktisch aus, da er aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammte. Zunächst arbeitete er als Dekormaler in einer Porzellanfabrik in Prag. 1806 konnte er an der Prager Akademie ein Studium beginnen. Nachfolgend war er im Atelier seines Lehrers K. Postl (1769-1818/1838) tätig, der ihn stark beeinflußte. 1836 erfolgte die Ernennung zum Professor für Landschaftsmalerei an der Prager Kunstakademie. Wie unser Blatt zeigt, stand Mánes der Malerei der Romantik nahe, nahm aber auch Einflüsse der holländischen Malerei auf, deren Anhänger er war. Das Schloß Eisenberg in der Nähe von Komotau im Erzgebirge war einst für Reisende ein lohnenswertes Ziel. Im 18. Jahrhundert war es im Besitz des kunstsinnigen Fürsten F.P.J. von Lobkowitz, bei dem auch Goethe zu Besuch weilte.

        A New Atlas of the British West Indies, with a Whole Sheet General Map of the West India Islands, and a Whole Sheet Map of the Island of Hispaniola, or St. Domingo. Engraved to accompany the Philadelphia edition of Edwards's History of the West Indies

      James Humphreys, Philadelphia 1806 - (11 1/2 x 10 3/4 inches). Letterpress title, half sheet letterpress list of plates, 11 engraved maps (3 folding). On guards throughout. Uncut. Expertly bound to style in half tree calf and period marbled paper covered boards. A rare early American atlas. First American edition, published to accompany the Philadelphia edition of Bryan Edwards's History of the West Indies, first published in London in 1793. Bryan Edwards (1743-1800) was a British politician and sometime Jamaica planter, noted for his history of the West Indies. The work had a particular appeal in Philadelphia, due to the many Quaker merchants in the city active in the West Indian sugar trade. This production is notable as a piece of early American cartography. The first American atlas of any kind was produced in 1794 by Matthew Carey, also of Philadelphia. James Humphreys (1748-1810) was an ambitious Philadelphia printer who began printing prior to the Revolution. His unwillingness to openly side with the American cause during the war resulted in his being labeled as a Loyalist, which had a somewhat negative impact on his later career. He left Philadelphia with the British, moving to New York and then later to England and Nova Scotia before returning to Philadelphia in 1797 to reestablish his press. This handsome atlas volume is one of the most important things published by him in his later career. The maps were engraved by Joseph H. Seymour, an American-trained engraver who began working for Isaiah Thomas as early as 1791. He worked for Thomas extensively until relocating to Philadelphia from about 1803 to 1822, where he continued his trade as an engraver, producing this atlas volume among other works. The maps are as follows: "A General Map of the West Indies," as well as individual maps of Jamaica, Barbados, Grenada, St. Vincents, Dominica, St. Christopher and Nevis, Antigua, the Virgin Islands, Tobago, and Hispaniola. The General Map, as well as the maps of Jamaica and Hispaniola are larger, folding sheets. Shaw & Shoemaker 10342; Phillips, Maps, p. 1060; Phillips, Atlases 2704 (1810 edition).

        Charte von America nach astronomischen Bestimmungen, den neuesten Nachrichten und Charten entworfen von F.L. Güssefeld. Nürnberg bey Homann Erben. Verbessert 1806. Mit R.K. Allergnädigster Freyheit".

      - Kupferstich-Karte von F.L. Guessefeld bei Homann Erben, datiert Nürnberg 1806, altkoloriert. ca. 57,5 x 44,5 cm (H). Horizontale und vertikale Knickfalte. Gleichmäßig leicht gebräunt, außerhalb der Plattenränder tlw. stärker. Zeigt ganz Amerika. Die Karte ist nicht exakt genordet. Die nördl. Begrenzung meist gestrichelt eingetragen als "wahrscheinliche Küste - gesehen 1771 - gäntzlich unbekannte Küste". The detail of the Pacific Northwest is an early result of the Lewis & Clark Expedition. The Hawaiian Islands are shown as the "Sandwich Islands" and the individual island names are shown using the early phonetic spelling. To the east of the Hawaiian Islands, i.e., between Hawaii and California, are an erroneous group of islands with Spanish names. These islands were introduced on maps in the mid-18th century and were not corrected until the early 19th century. Very good condition, with horizontal and vertical center folds (as issued) with slight loss at the meeting of the folds. Two additional light vertical creases in the area of the Pacific Ocean. There is some light toning of the 200 year old paper. Unobtrusive early underlining of place names mostly in the West Indies and a few small ink stains. Horizontal and vertical dog's ear.

        MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT...COMMUNICATING DISCOVERIES MADE IN EXPLORING THE MISSOURI, RED RIVER, AND WASHITA, BY CAPTAINS LEWIS AND CLARK, DOCTOR SIBLEY, AND MR. DUNBAR; WITH A STATISTICAL ACCOUNT OF THE COUNTRIES ADJACENT

      New York: Printed by Hopkins and Seymour, 1806. 128pp. plus folding table facing p.24. Titlepage, final leaf of meteorological table, and folding table in facsimile. Antique three-quarter calf and marbled boards. Marginal repair to first text leaf, else very good. The scarce New York printing of the first official publication to provide any detailed account of the Lewis and Clark expedition, and the first work to give any satisfactory account of the southwestern portion of the Louisiana Purchase. The first section consists of material transmitted to Jefferson by Lewis, giving information on their route, the Indians, trade, animals encountered, and the geography. Equally important are the accounts of the southern explorations, which include two letters by Dr. Sibley, one on the Indian tribes of Texas and the other an account of the Red River and the adjacent country. Sibley gives a careful account of the language, characteristics, location, and population of the various Indian tribes in Texas, with some account of their relations with the Spanish and French. The description of the Red River gives a good idea of the physical characteristics of the country. Streeter called this the first account of Texas in book form. Jefferson's report to Congress on the various western exploring expeditions he had dispatched to investigate Louisiana Territory was the most accurate and complete account of the area to appear until the official publications of Pike (1810) and Lewis and Clark (1814). It was widely cribbed by a press eager for information on the vast new lands. The report was published first in Washington, and this rarer New York edition appeared shortly thereafter. An essential Lewis and Clark and southwestern exploration piece. WAGNER-CAMP 5:3. LITERATURE OF THE LEWIS AND CLARK EXPEDITION 2b.4. HOWES L319, "b." FIELD 925. GRAFF 4407. SABIN 40824.

        Biographical Memoirs of Lord Viscount Nelson, &c. &c. &c.

      London: H. D. Symonds; J. Hatchard; and Black and Parry,, 1806. With observations, critical and explanatory. Octavo (225 × 137 mm). Original boards, paper spine label, uncut. Fine stipple-engraved portrait frontispiece of Nelson by Hopwood (based on the Piercy Roberts engraving after the Abbott portrait, used to illustrated a memoir in the Naval Chronicle of 1800), one plate (the "boat fight" off Cadiz), 4 plans (Cape St Vincent, Aboukir, Copenhagen, Trafalgar), facsimile of Nelson's handwriting. Extremities of spine chipped, joints partially split but sound, a couple of gatherings slightly toned, light offsetting from letterpress to plans. A very good, tall copy, with the publisher's 32-page catalogue (dated 1805) at the end. First edition of the first significant post-Trafalgar life of Nelson (the frontispiece is dated 7 January 1806), attractively presented here in the original boards. Charnock was prompted to write his biography by Nelson's "teacher, friend, and correspondent" (ODNB) Captain William Locker ("by him the present work was suggested"): "the information and the letters communicated by Locker gave the book, at the time, a value far above that of the numerous instant memoirs which were produced after Trafalgar" (ibid). John Charnock (1756-1807) was one of the most highly regarded naval authors of the period, although, as ODNB rather mournfully relates, "he died... in great poverty, and not impossibly in a debtors' gaol or an insane asylum... Charnock's career may be seen as a warning of the perils of professional naval authorship". His book precedes the better known biographies by Clarke and McArthur (1809) and Robert Southey (1813) and is an important milestone in the creation of the Nelson mythos.

        Nouveau plan routier de la ville de Paris et de ses faubourgs.

      Paris, Esnault, 1806. En 24 sections jointes de 0,65 x 1,07 m, monté sur toile. Très beau plan mural la ville de Paris divisée en 12 mairies, ainsi qu'elles furent décrétées le 11 octobre 1795. Dressé à l'usage des voyageurs en 1806, il figure tous les changements opérés jusqu'à cette date, avec les projets d'embellissement, les nouvelles rues et celles projetées, les ponts, passages, barrières, routes et chemins de ronde qui font le tour de Paris, les nouveaux boulevards de la capitale avec les changements des rues, places, quais, avenues et promenades publiques. Napoléon fut l'instigateur de ces premiers travaux d'embellissement et d'aménagement de voirie de la ville, parmi lesquels figurent le pont des Arts, construit entre 1802 et 1804, le pont d'Austerlitz, entre 1799 et 1807, les greniers de réserve, le quai d'Orsay, ou le marché aux fleurs. Certains quais des îles de la Cité et de Saint-Louis portent les noms pris à la Révolution. Ainsi, l'actuel quai de Bourbon, qui portait le nom de quai d'Alençon avant 1792, est nommé quai de la République, l'actuel quai d'Anjou est nommé quai de l'Union, le quai d'Orléans est nommé quai de l'Egalité, le quai de Béthune, quai de la Liberté, tandis que la rue Saint-Louis est appelée rue de la Fraternité, et que le Champ de Mars porte également le nom de champ de la Fédération. A l'emplacement du futur pont des Invalides figure la mention "Pont projetté". Le plan est accompagné d'une liste des rues, ponts, ruelles, marchés, et de la liste des 12 arrondissements avec les 48 divisions. Bel exemplaire, contours aquarellés à l'époque.

The fold-out map in excellent, very clean condition with only a very fine sign of a dampstain to the very outer margin. Rare ! And even rarer in this firm condition of the bindings ! William Mariner (17911853) was an Englishman who lived in Tonga from 29 November 1806 to (probably) 8 November 1810. He later published Tonga Islands, an account of his experiences that is now one of the major sources of information on Tonga, before it was significantly influenced by European culture, Christianity or colonisation. As a teenager, Mariner was a ship's clerk aboard the British privateer Port au Prince. In 1806, while it was anchored off the Tongan island of Lifuka, in the Ha'apai island group, Port au Prince was seized by a chief named Finau Ulukalala. Most of the crew were killed during the capture of the ship, but the chief spared Mariner and a few crewmates. Mariner lived in Tonga for four years. After returning to England, Mariner he dictated a detailed account of his experiences, a description of Tongan society and culture, and a grammar and dictionary of the Tongan language. The Port-au-Prince was an English private ship of war, a vessel of 500 tons armed with 24 long nine and twelve pound guns as well as 8 twelve pound carronades on the quarter deck. She carried a "letter of marque" and this document permitted her Captain and crew to become pirates against the enemies of England, primarily France and Spain. In payment for their pirate raids any plunder they seized was to be their own. Commanded by Captain Duck she sailed for the New World on 12 February 1805 having been given a twofold commission by her owner, a Mr. Robert Bent of London. Their primary goal was to attack the Spanish ships of the New World capturing gold and valuables but if she failed in that task her secondary objective was to sail into the Pacific in search of whales to be rendered for their oil. The Atlantic crossing was rough but uneventful and she lay off the coast of Brazil by April and then rounded Cape Horn in July before proceeding north in search of Spanish Galleons laden with treasure. They captured a number of ships but most yielded little in the way of valuables and at times the men began to get disgruntled by capturing what they contemptuously referred to as dung barges. The Port-au-Prince was now also on the lookout for whales as well but, although catching a few, experienced little success in this endeavour. After leaving Hawaii in September under the command of Mr. Brown, she intended to make port at Tahiti but missed the target and instead sailed westward for the Tonga Islands. She arrived in Ha'apai on 9 November 1806, almost two years since departing England and after numerous engagements, leaking badly and having already witnessed the death of her captain. She was laden with the spoils of war and cargo amounting to approx twelve thousand dollars plus a considerable amount of copper plus silver and gold ore. A large quantity of silver candlesticks, chalices, incense pans, crucifixes and images complemented the treasure. She weighed anchor, in seven fathoms water off the North West Point of Lifuka Island, for what was destined to be the last time. A number of chiefs visited the ship on the evening of her arrival and brought with them barbecued hogs, yams and a native of Hawaii who spoke some English informing Captain Brown that the Tongans had only friendly intentions. Finau, the chief of the Ha'apai, apparently took a liking to William Mariner, who reminded Finau of a son who had died of illness. Port-au-Prince also had Hawaiian crew who did not trust the situation and expressed concern to the captain that the Tongans were feigning friendliness while planning attack. Captain Brown chose to ignore the warnings. The next day Tongans began to board the vessel until there were around 300 in different parts of the ship. They invited Captain Brown ashore to see the Island and assured of their friendly motives he agreed. On arrival he was clubbed to death, stripped and left lying in the sand. Simultaneously the main attack commenced on the Port-au-Prince. The sailors were outnumbered and overwhelmed easily. Finau had given instructions that the life of Mariner should be spared if at all possible. All but four of the crew members were clubbed to death, their heads so badly beaten as to be unrecognisable. For the next three days the ship was stripped of her iron, a valuable commodity, and had her guns removed before being burnt to the water line to more readily remove what iron remained. Finau assumed responsibility for Mariner, taking him under his protection. Mariner became known as Toki 'Ukamea (Iron Axe) and spent the next four years living amongst the islanders. He lived mostly in the northern island group of Vava?u. During this period, Mariner witnessed Finau's attempts to unify the islands, using cannon seized from the Port-au-Prince. One long nine still lies on Ha'anno Island. In 1810, Mariner was rescued and returned to England. He related his story to John Martin, who authored the book The Tongan Islands, William Mariner's account. Mariner gave a lively description of Finau Fangupo in particular. In one passage, Mariner quoted Finau's opinion of the western innovation of money:If money were made of iron and could be converted into knives, axes and chisels there would be some sense in placing a value on it but as it is, I see none. If a man has more yams than he wants, let him exchange some of them away for pork. [...] Certainly money is much handier and more convenient but then, as it will not spoil by being kept, people will store it up instead of sharing it out as a chief ought to do, and thus become selfish. [...] I understand now very well what it is that makes the papalangi [white men] so selfish it is this money! There are three major versions of Mariner's account. The original version was first published in 1817 by John Murray II, with the help of Dr. John Martin, who assumed authorship. Later editions appeared in England in 1818 and 1827 and in Germany in 1819 and the United States in 1820. The Vava'u Press of Tonga issued a new edition in 1981 that includes a biographical essay about Mariner, written by Denis Joroyal McCulloch, one of Mariner's great-great grandsons, but leaves out the grammar and dictionary. Two modern editions with modern Tongan spelling and other additions have been published, the first by Boyle Townshend Somerville in 1936 and the second by Paul W. Dale in 1996. (Wikipedia)

        The Life of the Rev. Dr. Jonathan Swift, Dean of St.Patrick's, Dublin. [With an Appendix: Anecdotes of the Family of Swift. A Fragment, written by Dr. Swift].

      The Second Edition. 14.5 cm x 21,5 cm. Pagination: Portraitfrontispiece of Thomas Sheridan, III, (2), Portrait - Engraving of Jonathan Swift, (14), 488 pages. Hardcover. Original 18th century calf with richly gilted ornamenting on spine and boards and with the original spinelabel intact. The hinges a little weak but holding. All edges gilt with original, beautifully marbled endpapers well preserved. Interior wonderfully preserved and clean. Two previous, contemporary ownernames in ink (J.Turner, 1806 and M.Peele, 1787). Very good overall condition with only minor signs of external wear. This seems to be a large paper edition. Extremely rare ! Thomas Sheridan (1687 10 October 1738) was an Anglican divine, essayist, playwright, poet, schoolmaster and translator. He is chiefly remembered for his friendship with Jonathan Swift. He was born in Cavan, Ireland, the son of James Sheridan, and grandson of the Reverend Dennis Sheridan. Two of his uncles were William Sheridan, Bishop of Kilmore and Ardagh and Patrick Sheridan, Bishop of Cloyne. After graduating from Trinity College, Dublin, he married Elizabeth MacFadden and the couple first lived in Dublin in King James's Mint. He inherited from his father-in-law a substantial property at Quilca in County Cavan. He ran a school in Capel Street, Dublin in the 1720s whose pupils included children of many prominent families such as Anthony Foster, the future Chief Baron of the Irish Exchequer. He was father of Thomas Sheridan, a celebrated actor and elocutionist who was the father of Richard Brinsley Sheridan he had two other sons and one daughter. In 1725 he was appointed a royal chaplain, but preached a sermon which was considered by some to be politically suspect, and his appointment was cancelled. In compensation he was given a living at Drumlane in Cavan and in 1735 became headmaster of the Cavan Royal School where he remained for three years. Other appointments he is reputed to have applied for were the position of Dean of Kilmore and the position of headmaster of the Royal School in Armagh, but neither were successful. He was friends with Jonathan Swift, and had a room permanently reserved for him in the Deanery he was his principal collaborator and wrote his biography. Swift often stayed at Sheridan's country house and wrote part of Gulliver's Travels there. On the much debated question of whether Swift was secretly married to Esther Johnson ("Stella") Sheridan was a strong if not conclusive witness that the marriage did take place according to friends his source was Stella herself. Like so many of Swift's friends, he was ultimately fated to quarrel with him irrevocably: apart from Swift's increasing eccentricity, perhaps insanity, the cause of the quarrel is obscure. Sheridan collapsed and died suddenly while having dinner at a friend's house in Rathfarnham, County Dublin. Swift before their final quarrel called him the best scholar in Ireland Sir Walter Scott in his Life of Swift calls him "good- natured and light- hearted." (Wikipedia)

        Reisenovellen 1 - 4 (u.) Neue Reisenovellen 1 - 2. 6 in 5 Bdn.

(1-2:) 1 Pappband der Zeit mit Rückenvergoldung, 2 farbigen Rückenschildern in Goldprägung u. goldgeprägtem Supralibros, (3-6:) ca. 1 cm kleinere Halblederbände der Zeit mit Rückenvergoldung und jeweils 2 farbigen Rückenschildern in Goldprägung (1-2: etwas bestoßen u. berieben 3-6: gering berieben, stellenweise braunfleckig). Vollständige erste Ausgabe der "Reisenovellen" von dem Schriftsteller, Dramaturgen, Theaterdirektor und -kritiker sowie Publizisten Heinrich Laube (1806 - 1884). Es waren die "Reisenovellen", die den Behörden der gegen Laube erhobenen "Anklage auf Teilnahme an einer Burschenschaft, durch die darin enthaltenen autobiographischen Geständnisse, neues Material zu(führten) und (sie) wurden gerade im Oberzensurkollegium gelesen. ... Von dort (kam) der Ukas: das Buch habe 'eine im höchsten Grade unsittliche, an die verderblichen Richtungen eines Heine und Wienbrack (statt Wienbarg !) sich anschließende Tendenz, die auf eine scheinbar vergeistigte, aber um so verführerische Herrschaft der rohesten sinnlichen Lust hinausgehe, und wobei nicht selten auch unumwunden die giftigste Feindschaft und Lästerung gegen das Christentum und die christliche Kirche hervorträten'. (Auch warf man Laube "frechen Tadel bestehender Staatsinstitute und Provokation zum Umsturz des Bestehenden" u.a. vor. Daher) verbot (der Zensor Gustav v.) Rochow Laubes 'Reisenovellen', nicht nur Band 1 und 2, die in Grimma mit sächsischer Zensur gedruckt waren, sondern auch die 'etwa künftig noch hinzutretenden Bände'" (Houben), womit sich der Verlagswechsel nach Band 2 erklärt. Laube wehrt sich in seinem "Vor- und Schlußwort" dagegen, Heines Reisebilder bloß nachgeahmt zu haben. Heine habe ihn und seine Mitstreiter zwar auf den "Kampfplatz" im vormärzlichen Deutschland "gelockt", aber seit Heine in Frankreich, fern von den Entwicklungen in Deutschland lebe, sei "eine Nachahmung Heine's ... seit längerer Zeit völlig altmodisch, wir sind ein ganz andres Deutschland jetzt, als für das Heine Reisebilder in Hamburg schrieb". In den "Reisenovellen" verarbeitete Laube zunächst "Eindrücke, die (er) im Sommer 1833 auf einer gemeinsam mit Gutzkow unternommenen Italienreise gewonnen hatte" (ADB). Sie führte von Breslau über Braunschweig, Halle, Leipzig (hier die berühmte Begegnung C. F. v. Rumohrs), Karlsbad, München, Salzburg, Innsbruck, den Gardasee (Goethe), Verona, Padua nach Venedig und über Triest nach Wien (Metternich, Soldaten und Mädchen, Künstler, Essen und Moden, Grillparzer, Beethoven etc.). Über Ungarn und Prag gehts zurück nach Dresden (Sächsische Schweiz, Weisflog etc.) und endet mit der "Flucht durch's Gebirge". In den "Neuen Reisenovellen" beschreibt Laube 1. Ein Reise nach Pommern (vor allem nach Rügen). 2. Berlin (u.a. über Heine und Hegel). 3. Thüringen (Weißenfels, Auerstädt und Ossmanstädt, Weimar, Goethe's Hauswesen, Briefe und Gespräche Goethes u.a.). 4. Süddeutschland (Rhein, Nibelungen, Stuttgart, Schiller in Stuttgart etc.).- Goed.

        Le sentiment analysé ou l'école de l'adolescence

      Paris: Chez Janet Libraire, 1806. 1-16, 1-24, 17-32pp., + (12)ff. engraved illustrations. Title page also engraved. This miniature almanac includes calendar tables for the year 1806 and a list of eclipses, as well as twelve short educational poems. Each of the rhyming poems, consisting of three stanzas of eight lines each, seeks to instruct innocent growing children on how to behave as they enter adolescence. The calendar is bound around this main text as usual, with January through May before and June through December after. Bondy comments on a group of French almanacs, of which this title is a part: "Of particular rarity are some of the slightly larger volumes... published between 1790 and 1814 by Jubert, Janet, Marcilly or Le Fuel in Paris. They all have engraved titles and most of them contain twelve full-page plates executed with the greatest care and delicacy, representing elegant scenes of contemporary life.... Collectors who succeed in finding any of these magnificent almanacs all of which are now exceedingly rare, must deem themselves very fortunate." Handsomely bound in gilt-tooled red morocco, and housed in a matching slipcase lined in light blue silk. A.e.g. Light wear and some oxidation to the gilt edges, else a fine copy of an "exceedingly rare" item. (Bondy, pp. 48-50). (2 5/8 by 1 3/4; 67x45mm).

        Vida de J.J. Dessalines, gefe de los negros de Santo Domingo; con notas muy circunstanciadas sobre el origen, caracter y atrocidades de los principales gefes de aquellos rebeldes desde el principio de la insurreccion en 1791. Traducido del frances...

      Mexico City: Juan López Cancelada en la oficina de Mariano de Zuniga y Ontiveros, 1806. First Mexican edition and first with the plates. Quarto (20.5 x 14.8 cm), pp [4], 1-10, 1-18, [2], 19-106, with frontispiece and nine engraved plates. The plates are by Jose Simon de Larrea and Manuel Lopez Lopez, and consist of portraits of the leaders of this famous slave revolt, and some scenes of the atrocities committed. The rebellion against French rule in Haiti (St. Domingue) is painted in the worst light, part of the French propaganda about this revolt, but the facts were indeed grim. Jean-Jacques Dessalines fought alongside L'Ouverture for Haiti’s freedom, became the first emperor of the new nation: his bloodthirsty ways were notorious even in his time. The engravers depict their subjects as virtual caricatures of themselves, with overly large lips and noses and bulging eyes and engaging in brutal atrocities, while the whites are shone in the most humane forms. The plates are unique to this edition and appear nowhere else and have a nightmarish quality. (Emperor Maximilian owned a copy of this book.) Dubroca, the author, wrote an equally disparaging life of Toussaint L'Ouverture. The publisher, Juan López Cancelada, was a Spanish-born emigrant who became a well-known polemicist and political agitator in Mexico: he may well have published this book as a warning about what could happen in Mexico with its huge "caste" population. Binding is contemporary full Mexican tree calf, with leather spine label, spine gilt, marbled endpapers, sprinkled edges. The final leaf of text has some old repairs. Very good copy.

        Vida de J.J. Dessalines, gefe de los negros de Santo Domingo; con notas muy circunstanciadas sobre el origen, caracter y atrocidades de los principales gefes de aquellos rebeldes desde el principio de la insurreccion en 1791. Traducido del frances...

      Mexico City: Juan López Cancelada en la oficina de Mariano de Zuniga y Ontiveros, 1806. First Mexican edition and first with the plates. Quarto (20.5 x 14.8 cm), pp [4], 1-10, 1-18, [2], 19-106, with frontispiece and nine engraved plates. The plates are by Jose Simon de Larrea and Manuel Lopez Lopez, and consist of portraits of the leaders of this famous slave revolt, and some scenes of the atrocities committed. The rebellion against French rule in Haiti (St. Domingue) is painted in the worst light, part of the French propaganda about this revolt, but the facts were indeed grim. Jean-Jacques Dessalines fought alongside L'Ouverture for Haiti?s freedom, became the first emperor of the new nation: his bloodthirsty ways were notorious even in his time. The engravers depict their subjects as virtual caricatures of themselves, with overly large lips and noses and bulging eyes and engaging in brutal atrocities, while the whites are shone in the most humane forms. The plates are unique to this edition and appear nowhere else and have a nightmarish quality. (Emperor Maximilian owned a copy of this book.) Dubroca, the author, wrote an equally disparaging life of Toussaint L'Ouverture. The publisher, Juan López Cancelada, was a Spanish-born emigrant who became a well-known polemicist and political agitator in Mexico: he may well have published this book as a warning about what could happen in Mexico with its huge "caste" population. Binding is contemporary full Mexican tree calf, with leather spine label, spine gilt, marbled endpapers, sprinkled edges. The final leaf of text has some old repairs. Very good copy.
