        Le grand Oiseau de paradis, émeraude, mâle [Greater Bird of Paradise, male (Paradisea apoda)]

      1806. Colour-printed engraving with hand-colouring. Imprint shaved. Barraband's image effortlessly captures the exotic beauty of one of the most spectacular of all Birds of Paradise. The technical brilliance of the colour-printing used in the production of this print ablely captures the precision and beauty of Barraband's watercolour and gouache originals. Jacques Barraband was the finest ornithological artist of his time. The son of a weaver at the Aubusson Factory, he is first mentioned as a pupil of Joseph Malaine (1745-1809), the eminent flower painter, and is known to have worked for both the Gobelin Factory and the porcelain factory of Sèvres. His most important work was undoubtedly the 300 or so drawings that he produced for François Levaillant's three great ornithological monographs, the most spectacular of which was the Histoire naturelle des oiseaux de paradis et des rolliers... (Paris, [1801]-06). Cf. Anker 304; cf. Brunet III.1033; cf.Fine Bird Books (1990), p.118; cf. Nissen IVB 559; cf. Ronsil, p. 298; cf. Wood, p. 434; cf. Zimmer, p. 393.

        [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, 1806. a folded folio sheet. A bit of old tape residue along edge of fourth page (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, U.S.S. 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." Preble (1761-1807) 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 of supercargo and 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. He was commissioned a lieutenant in 1798 and promoted to captain the following year. In 1803-4, 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.

Horeau d'après les notes prises pendant les cours de Corvisart à la Charité. Les éditions ultérieures seront de la main de Corvisart lui-même.

        Tableaux Historiques des campagnes D'Italie, depuis l'an IV jusqu'a la Bataille de Marengo; suivis du Precis des operations de l'Armee d'Orient des details sur les ceremonies du sacre, des Bulletins officiels de la Grande Armée et de l'Armée d'Italie dans tout le cours de la dernire guerre d'Allemagne, jusqu'a la paix de Presbourg.

      Paris, Auber, 1806. Prima edizione francese con incisioni dai dipinti originali di Carl Vernet. In folio, legatura originale in mz. Pelle verde, dorso in pelle marrone di marocchino a sette nervi con fregi e titolo in oro, piatti in tela azzurra, tagli in oro, occhietto, frontespizio, bel ritratto di Napoleone a p.p. che segue il front. (inciso da Simon), pp. X (contenenti l'introduzione e una bella scena allegorica con il trionfo di Napoleone), 138, 63, testo in lingua francese. Il volume è così composto: stemma al frontespizio, ritratto di Napoleone a cavallo, testata celebrativa, 25 tavv., ossia 23 tavv. di battaglie italiane (di cui l?ultima è Marengo), 1 carta geografica dell?Italia a doppia pagina (opera del geografo Lorrain, eseguita da Louvet e con legende incise da Dien), 1 tav. dell?Egitto (con la carta dell?Italia si conclude il ?Tableaux Historiques? e segue il ?Prècis Historique de l?expedition d?Égypte?; fra la carta dell?Italia e i medaglioni con i ritratti che seguono questa ultima sezione e aprono la ?Cérémonies du sacre.? - che si conclude a p. 138 - si trova la tavola dell?Egitto); la numerazione riparte da p. 1 con il ?Précis Historique de la campagne d?Allemagne? (l?Appendice) e arriva fino alla p. 63 (qui, tra la p. 40 e la 41, non è riportata, come invece risulta esserci in altre copie della medesima edizione, la battaglia di Austerlitz, che manca non per lacuna ma in origine, poiché non contemplata neanche nell?indice delle tavole). Edizione originale, in prima tiratura, delle incisioni di questa celebre opera che ebbe varie ristampe nel corso dell'800. La trattazione offre puntuali resoconti iconografici e descrittivi di ciascuna delle battaglie napoleoniche italiane, un ?Précis historique de l'expedition d'Egypte?; un capitolo dedicato alle feste che ebbero luogo a Parigi per l'incoronazione degli Imperatori e, in fine, un ?Précis historique sur la campagne d'Allemagne?. Il volume, in edizione originale, è quindi una splendida raccolta di incisioni, accompagnate da lunghe relazioni, impresse con eleganti caratteri tipografici. L?opera rappresenta una celebrazione di Napoleone e delle sue imprese, con i testi e le tavole che descrivono le campagne d?Italia, d?Egitto, di Germania e di Polonia, e con una relazione dell?incoronazione di Napoleone imperatore e della sua consorte. I disegni preparatori per le tavole furono forniti dal pittore, disegnatore e incisore Carle Vernet, discendente di una celebre famiglia di artisti settecenteschi; la trasposizione dei disegni su lastra spetta a validi incisori transalpini, tra i quali L. J. Masquelier, Daudet, P.P. Choffard, Dambrun, Dupréel, J. Bosq; le 23 vedute della campagna d?Italia, dall?accurata topografia e ricche di figure, rappresentano le principali battaglie, nonché gli ingressi trionfali delle truppe francesi: tra le località rappresentate ci sono Millesimo, Mondovì, il Po?, Lodi, Milano, Pavia, Livorno, Castiglione, Roveredo, San Giorgio, la Corsica, Arcole, Rivoli, la Favorita, il Tagliamento, Venezia, Mantova, Roma, Torino, Napoli, il valico del Monte San Bernardo, Montebello e Casteggio, Marengo; a seguire una bella carta geografica dell?Italia a doppia pagina, opera del geografo Lorrain, eseguita da Louvet e con legende incise da Dien. Superficiale usura alla legatura, interno marginoso e fresco, nonostante minime tracce d?ossidazione con macchiette di foxing ma soprattutto alla velina che protegge le tavole; per il resto esemplare completo e in buono stato di conservazione.

        [K366]. Idomeneo Re di Creta o sia Ilia e Idamante Drama Eroico in tre atti... prezzo 48 fr. [Full score]

      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]. [1806]. Folio. Attractively bound in modern dark brown half-calf with marbled boards, raised bands on spine in compartments gilt, morocco title label. 1f. (title), [1] (blank), [2] (Personaggi), 3-123, [i] (blank), [i] (half title to Act II), 124-223, [i] (blank), [i] (full title), 224-365 pp. Engraved. With text in Italian. The title page of Act 3 carries "L'Jdomeneo" in its first line; it is otherwise identical to the title page of Act 1. The half-title of Act 2 reads: "I Domeneo Rè di Creta. Atto II." Annotations in pencil: voice types to Personaggi, unsystematic reiteration of staff names after page breaks, and some measure numbers; occasional corrections. Dampstaining to lower inner corner from the final leaf of the first act on. Quite a good copy overall. . First Edition, 6th issue. Köchel 6 p. 372. Haberkamp pp. 163-166. Hoboken II, 108 (another issue). Hirsch II, 654 (issue not indicated). RISM M4187 (does not distinguish among issues). The score order is unusual in that the timpani are at the head of the system, followed by the winds in order of decreasing loudness - trumpets, horns, clarinets, flutes, oboes; the strings at the bottom of the system appear in the usual layout, i.e., by range. There is no separate staff for the bassoons, which simply doubled the string bass. An overture and 32 numbers, including 2 ballets. Idomeneo, a "dramma per musica" in three acts, was first performed in Munich at the Residenztheater on January 29, 1781 to a libretto by Giovanni Battista Varesco after Antoine DanchetÂ’s Idomenée; "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.

He obtained letters of recommendation to Dr Areskine, chief physician and privy councillor to Tsar Peter I, and left London in July 1714. The Tsar was at this time planning a diplomatic mission to the sophy of Persia, and on Dr Areskine's advice Bell was engaged in the tsar's service and included in the mission. He left St Petersburg on 15 July 1715 and proceeded to Moscow, and from there to Kazan and south along the Volga to Astrakhan. The mission then sailed down the Caspian Sea to Derbent and travelled on to Esfahan in Persia, where they arrived on 14 March 1717. They left Esfahan on 1 September and returned to St Petersburg via Saratov on 30 December 1718. On his return Bell learned of another mission, to China, on which he was included following the recommendation of the British ambassador. Bell's account of his remarkable journey is recorded in his one publication, [the above first published in 1763]. Despite the tedium of the sixteen-month expedition, Bell's account of the journey to Kazan and through Siberia to China is the most complete and interesting part of his travels. Of particular note are his descriptions of the Dalai Lama and the Chinese wall, and his residence in Peking (Beijing). The embassy left the capital on 2 March 1721 and arrived at Moscow on 5 January 1722. In the same year Bell accompanied an expedition into Persia as far as Derbent, but returned to St Petersburg in December 1722...?' US$1238

        C. KOCH (1806-1900) Porträt Carl Gustav CARUS, nach J. Hübner, um 1844, Litho

      - Carl Koch (1806 Hamburg - Speyer 1900). Porträt Carl Gustav Carus, nach Julius Hübner. um 1844. Lithographie auf Papier. -- Technik: -- Lithographie auf aufgewalztem China-Papier. unten links im Stein signiert: "Gem. v. J. Hübner lith. v. C. Koch", unten rechts bezeichnet: "Gedr. bei Fr. Hanfstaengl in Dresden. " und ""Geheimer Medicinal-Rath Leibarzt Sr. Majestät des Königs v. Sachsen geb. 1789 gemalt 1844. ". -- Maße: -- Papier: 42,8 x 33,5 cm 27 x 21,2 cm. -- Zustand: -- Insgesamt gut, im Rand leicht fleckig und minimal gebräunt, am rechten Rand einige wenige kleine, professionel geschlossene Einrisse, am linken Rand kleine Quetschfalte vom Druck. -- Beschreibung: -- Die Lithographie gibt das 1844 vollendete Gemälde von Hübner im Gegensinn wieder. Es war als Danksagungan den Arzt Carus entstanden, der im gleichen Jahr vergeblich versucht hat, eine Tochter Hübnerszu heilen. Die Komposition ist von einer gravitätischen Ruhe geprägt, die Würde und Anspruch Carus"verdeutlichen soll. Hübner kombiniert die respektvolle Darstellung aber darüber hinaus mit einer lebensnahenIndividualität, die das distanzierte Gelehrtenporträt wieder in den menschlichen Bannkreis zurückholt. Doch die Repräsentation steht weiterhin im Vordergrund, was auch das Buch zeigt, auf das sich Carusstützt. Der Titel verweist auf eine seiner erfolgreichsten Publikationen "Von den Ur-Theilen des Knochen-und Schalengerüstes" von 1828. Dieses wichtige Werk in Carus" Leben wurde von Goethe hochgeschätzt, was für Carus von entscheidender Bedeutung war. Somit wird verständlich, warum er sichauch 14 Jahre später noch auf diese "Lebensleistung" stützt. -- [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        [CONSECUTIVE RUN OF EARLY LOUISIANA LAWS FOR THE FIRST SIX SESSIONS OF THE TERRITORIAL LEGISLATURE, 1806 - 1811]

      New Orleans. 1806-1811.. Six volumes, publication details and pagination provided in the listing below. Antique-style half calf and marbled boards, leather label. Small ink library stamp to titlepages, embossed blind-stamp to two titlepages, occasional ink ownership signature, a couple of small paper repairs. Overall a very good set. A very desirable run of the session laws issued by the Orleans Territorial Legislature (with the volumes for the first and second session of each of the three legislatures present) between its formation, when it succeded the unelected Legislative Council, to the last session, after which Louisiana achieved statehood and ceased to be a Territory in 1812. All volumes printed in English and French on facing pages. The first imprint is the exceedingly rare 1806 first edition of the first session laws of the first legislature, which was subsequently reprinted the next year. It is almost never seen in the marketplace. In fact, all of these volumes are quite rare both institutionally and in the marketplace. In almost forty years, we've only ever offered three of the six imprints, not including the 1806 edition. ^The imprints included here are as follows: ^1) BY AUTHORITY.

        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

      Philadelphia, 1806. Quarto. Original marbled boards, neatly rebacked in antique calf, spine gilt, leather label. Text leaves lightly toned, scattered foxing to maps. Slight separation at folds of Hispaniola map. A few small tears at edges. About very good. A rare early American atlas, published to accompany the Philadelphia edition of Bryan Edwards' HISTORY OF THE WEST INDIES (1806), first published in London in 1793. Edwards (1743-1800) was a British politician and sometime Jamaica planter. "Edwards was a diligent and able writer of West Indian history. Of his literary works, the most important is his two-volume HISTORY, CIVIL AND COMMERCIAL, OF THE BRITISH COLONIES IN THE WEST INDIES, published in London in 1793. According to Elsa Goveia, its scope is large, providing 'a complete account of the British islands - their origin and progress, their political system, their inhabitants, customs, institutions, agriculture and commerce.' Edwards wrote that he attempted 'to describe the manners and dispositions of the present inhabitants, as influenced by climate, situation, and other local causes...an account of the African slave trade, some observations on the negro character and genius, and reflections on the system of slavery established in our colonies.' This classic work ran into five editions, was expanded to five volumes in the last edition, which appeared in 1819, and was translated into French, German, Dutch, Portuguese, and Italian" - DNB. This production is notable as a piece of early American cartography. The first American atlas of any kind was produced in 1794 by Mathew 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 is one of the most important of his publications from his later career. The maps were engraved by Joseph H. Seymour, an American- trained engraver who began working for Isaiah Thomas in Worcester, Massachusetts 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, among his other works. The maps are as follows: "A General Map of the West Indies," as well as individual maps of Jamaica, Barbados, Grenada, St. Vincent, 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.

        THE NAVIGATOR: OR THE TRADERS' USEFUL GUIDE IN NAVIGATING THE MONONGAHELA, ALLEGHENY, OHIO, AND MISSISSIPPI RIVERS...ILLUSTRATED WITH THIRTEEN ACCURATE MAPS OF THE MISSISSIPPI, AND ONE OF PITTSBURGH

      Pittsburgh, 1806. Original limp paper-covered boards. Noticeably worn, spine perished and reinforced with later sewn thread, corners worn. Dampstain to first few leaves, contemporary notations and marginalia, minor foxing. Good. The rare and important fifth edition, the first to contain navigation charts, covering the Mississippi River from the junction of the Ohio to New Orleans. This is an especially interesting copy for the ownership inscription and notations found on the front endpapers and flyleaves, and in the marginalia on four pages of the text. The book is signed "John Seelye Book Cape Girardeau upper Louisiana now State of Masoura [sic] December 11th, 1807." Then, in a striking narrative that emcompasses five lines on the front free endpaper and the entirety of the next three flyleaves, the owner relates a perilous journey down the White River from Missouri to New Orleans (with "but this book...for my guide to N. Orleans"), during which he almost lost his life and his horse after mis-judging the depth of the river and falling into frigid whitewater. He made his way to a house after his "cloth[e]s were frozen as stiff as possibly could be." Here, the locals told Seelye that the waters of the river "are so transparent that you may see the smallest fish at its bottom when the waters are at the highest." Apparently, the house at which he stopped belonged to a family who owned dogs that Seelye had shot for "evil(?) conduct." He thanks his "creator" that they were not at home to exact revenge, and further gives praise for his "miraculous escape from the icey waters of White River" and then signs his name. On the next leaf is a note stating he bought the book for 75¢ in Pittsburgh on Dec. 26, 1805. Considering this book was actually utilized for the purpose for which it was created, used by someone traveling downriver to New Orleans, some of the condition factors can be understood. In fact, the dampstains to the preliminary pages are likely from his accidental fall into the White River. Seelye was no armchair navigator. He journeyed down the White River to the Mississippi, making extensive notes in the margins of the section of the book on the Mississippi River, mainly about the trees and plants he found along the way, namely cedar, mulberry, tobacco, hemp, flax, sugar, and fruit trees. He also mentions Indians, and complains about the lack of prepared wine found in the region. A short note on p.14 reads, "The Cotton tree is of all kinds most useful and numerous." "Most widely used guide to western waters in the early period, both before and after the application of steam in 1807" - Howes. A wonderful copy with contemporary provenance.

Webster also attempted to reduce the inconsistencies in English spelling and incorporated changes based on his vision of logic and aesthetics such as changing many "ce" endings to "se" (e.g., changing defence to defense), eliminating silent "l"s (e.g. changing travell to travel), removing superfluous "u"s (e.g., changing humour to humor), and abandoning silent "k"s (e.g. changing publick to public) - see "Noah Webster and America's First Dictionary" at the Merriam-Webster website.

        K366]. Idomeneo Re di Creta o sia Ilia e Idamante Drama Eroico in tre atti. prezzo 48 fr. [Full score]

      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], Bonn - 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. 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. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
