From 1808 to 1835 he was first professor of violin and viola at the newly opened Milan Conservatory... Continuing the northern Italian tradition of Sammartini and others, Rolla was very active in the field of instrumental music... Rolla's compositions, which number some 500 or more, relate to both the Italian instrumental tradition (particularly that of Boccherini) and the Viennese Classical style... In his chamber music Rolla displays his increasing familiarity with Beethoven's music." Antonio Rostagno in Grove Music Online. "In his compositions, he elevated the viola, which before had been rarely used as a solo instrument, to a status equal to the violin's; especially his duets for violin and viola enjoyed wide circulation and many reprints." Antje Tumat in MGG2.

        Orme's Collection of British Field Sports illustrated in twenty beautiful coloured engravings.

      London Edward Orme 1 January -25 March 1808 1807 - Landscape folio (45.5 x 55 cm). Hand-coloured aquatint title, list of plates with aquatint vignette, and 20 hand-coloured, deckle-edged aquatint plates principally by W.M. Craig, J. Godby, and H. Merke after Howitt. Plate captions in English and French, corrective overslips as usual on the captions to plates 2 and 9. (Title with repaired tear at lower corner and with small Spitz ownership stamp on verso, his stamp repeated on verso of final plate.) Full blue morocco by the Lakeside Press, Chicago, the covers dark blue, contrasting light blue title label on front cover with gilt cartouche, light blue morocco spine with raised bands titled in gilt, blue buckram slipcase. "Very rare The first and only edition of the finest and most important sporting book of the last two centuries" (Schwerdt). Tooley calls it 'a magnificent work, the most valuable English colour plate book on sport'. Although there are fox, stag and hare hunting scenes, the majority of plates depict the shooting of different game birds in deeply rural woods and pastureland. The present copy contains the plates in an early state, printed on sheets watermarked 1804, 1805 or 1806 (Abbey records copies dated as late as 1819). The word 'cheveau' in plate 2 has an 'x' added in pencil. A handsome copy with plates uncut. Samuel Howitt (1756/57–1822) was an English painter, illustrator and etcher of animals, hunting, horse-racing and landscape scenes. Howitt was closely associated in his art with Thomas Rowlandson, whose sister he married. Howitt's early watercolour style has similarities to Rowlandson's, but Howitt developed a more individual style as his career as a sporting artist progressed. He seems to have had an innate capacity for drawing animals, from commonplace hare and deer to exotic species that he studied in menageries. He was an animated draughtsman, and his drawings of hunts and sporting events have a fluidity and excitement fitting to the subject. (ODNB). Edward Orme (1775-1848) was, after Rudolph Ackermann, the most important publisher of illustrated books during the short golden age of the coloured aquatint. Orme's output totalled some 700 illustrations, but his monument is his British Field Sports. Abbey Scenery 14; Mellon/Podeschi 86; Schwerdt II, p. 53; Tooley 273. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Udfald mod de Engelske i Classens Have, under Kiöbenhavns Beleiring, d. 31. August 1807.

      1807 1807 - Akvatinte udført af G.L. Lahde efter forlæg af C.W. Eckersberg. 1807. 32 x 46 cm. [Inkl. margin 40,5x53 cm.]. * Tidlig om morgenen den 31. august rykkede 2200 mand under oberst Bechs kommando ud fra Kastellet mod Classens Have, som lå mellem Classensgade, Østerbrogade, Rosenvængets Allé og stranden ca. 1 km nord for det daværende Københavns Øster Port. Formålet var at afbrænde bygninger og fælde træer, derfor deltog 50 tømmermænd fra Holmen. Udfaldet blev understøttet med 3 kanonbåde fra søsiden. Den 70-årige Generalmajor Peymann (som aldrig tidligere havde haft en militær kommando, det meste af sin tjenestetid havde han tilbragt bag skrivebordet) blev såret af en flintekugle i det venstre lår. Udfaldet mod Classens Have den 31. august var dog helt uden strategisk betydning. Englænderne havde på dette tidspunkt færdiggjort deres batteristillinger, som lå uden for søerne - altså meget længere væk fra byen end Classens Have. Udfaldet kunne på ingen måde genere fjenden, det var nytteløst at foretage et udfald, som kun havde Classens Have som mål, når fjendens hele strategi byggede på et artilleriangreb. Eckersberg har fastholdt udfaldet med sin skitse, som efterfølgende blev stukket af G.L. Lahde. Til venstre kan man se en af tømmermændene i gang med at fælde et træ, foran ligger døde eller sårede soldater, imens krudtrøgen bølger i baggrunden. De døde og sårede soldater på Eckersberg skitse er formentlig danske, da de engelske styrker ikke opholdt sig i Classens have. [Portal om dansk historie].

Leur datation suscita une vive polémique parmi les astronomes de l'époque (Lalande, Burckhardt, etc.) parce qu'elle semblait remettre en question la chronologie biblique.

The last pages have been wrinkled and/or stained. They are, however, clear and eager. The frontis and very early pages have mild edge wear and storage damage. This does not intrude on the pages much beyond the edges. The book is resolutely approachable and enjoyable. The text, illustrations etc are neat and clear and clean. The corners have some wear. Volume IV: printer not indicated. The covers have some damp marks and staining. Within, the early and later pages have some mild wrinkling. The contents are assured, reassuring, clubbable. Each volume has a previous owner stamp (B Alexander and a book number). Each volume is attractive for the shelf. The wonderful thing about this set of walks about Westminster and Southwark is that they may still be used! And where war damage is encountered, the descriptions and tales would provoke wistfulness on top of the pleasure and ease of the explorations. A pleasant, happy set despite the above mentioned damp consequences, and certainly one to extract admiring comments from acquisitive visitors. fk [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A LETTER ON THE ABOLITION OF THE SLAVE TRADE; ADDRESSED TO THE FREEHOLDERS AND OTHER INHABITANTS OF YORKSHIRE

      London: Printed by Luke Hansard & Sons for T. Cadell and W. Davies, and J. Hatchard, 1807. Contemporary tree calf, spine gilt, leather label. Corners and hinges lightly worn. Modern bookplate on front pastedown. Minor scattered foxing. Very good. In a half morocco and cloth box, spine gilt. First edition, inscribed "From the Author" by Wilberforce on the titlepage. One of the most important works in the British anti-slavery campaign. A politician, philanthropist, and devoted Christian, Wilberforce spent many years fighting in Parliament for the abolition of the slave trade. This work, originally intended to only be a pamphlet, was a description of the evidence and arguments against the slave trade accumulated by Wilberforce over the course of two decades. Its publication on Jan. 31, 1807 served as the culmination of the final struggle for stopping the trafficking of slaves along with the introduction of the Abolition Bill in the House of Lords, and was the decisive factor in its passage. The bill passed the upper house by a large majority and was read in the Commons on February 23rd. It passed by 283 votes to 16 and received the royal assent on March 25. Wilberforce devoted the rest of his life to the anti-slavery movement and died in 1833, just three days after Parliament voted to abolish slavery. PRINTING AND THE MIND OF MAN 232.

        LIFE OF MICHEL ANGELO BUONARROTI, With his Poetry and Letters

      London: John Murray, et al, 1807. Second issuance. With a finely engraved portrait frontis by Bartolozzi and 49 etched outline plates of selections of works, several of which are folding, including a very large and quite impressive folding plate of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel which unfolds to become well over three feet wide, and with three facsimile letters. Tall 4to, handsomely presented in a very fine and beautiful contemporary binding of full polished mottled calf, The spine is tooled in gilt, with double fillet lines separating the compartments. One of the compartments with dark green morocco lettering label gilt. A very handsome copy of a scarce book. xi, 468 pp. A truly beautiful copy, internally fine and fresh as could be, the plates beautifully preserved, an unusually fine period binding. Some light expected age evidence along the hinges and extremities and occasionally, other minor signs of age. A BOOK OF GREAT BEAUTY, HANDSOMELY BOUND IN FULL PERIOD POLISHED MOTTLED CALF. When speaking of any of the craftsmen involved in the work, whether printer, engraver or binder, clearly no detail was overlooked and no expense was spared in its production. Richard Duppa produced this outstanding study of Michelangelo after being inspired by a series of lectures by his friend Joshua Reynolds. Duppa provides a great of background and insight into the definitive “Renaissance man” from a great number of contemporary sources such as Vasari and Condivi. It is also one of the first and few to provide such attention on Michelangelo as a man of letters as well as sculptor, painter and architect. For the translations of poetry which enrich his work Duppa turned “to my friends Southey and Wordsworth.” Michelangelo studied and wrote poetry throughout his life, frequently turning to it in times of emotional crisis. Duppa’s biography can be found credited in almost all later scholarly work on Michelangelo. The engraved plates met with such popularity that many of them were reissued in various works throughout the 19th century.

        [Cherries] Early May - Adam's Crown - Red-Heart Cherry

      [London]: G. Brookshaw, 1807. Aquatint engraving, with some stipple, printed in colours and finished by hand. In good condition, with one expertly repaired marginal tear. A fine image from Brookshaw's masterpiece: 'Pomona Britannica; or, A Collection of the Most Esteemed Fruits'. George Brookshaw's 'Pomona Britannica' is the finest work on fruit and flowers ever produced. Its breathtaking images display a level of technical virtuosity and beauty that distinguish this magnificent book as a true work of art. As a retired cabinetmaker, Brookshaw produced his seminal botanical study late in his career, at first publishing it in parts and then as a complete edition in 1812. The fact that this outstanding work took ten years to complete is evident in the quality of its images and the care with which Brookshaw executed each individual picture. 'Pomona Britannica' was produced as a visual record of the best available varieties of fruit in an attempt to encourage gardeners to experiment with growing fruit, and illustrates examples found in the Royal gardens at Hampton Court, Kensington Gardens, and the private gardens of the Prince of Wales in Blackheath. 'Pomona Britannica' differs from other botanical books in its dark aquatinted backgrounds and its stylized compositions. By using aquatint to create a contrasting background, Brookshaw manages to produce a truly dramatic effect. His use of stylized composition distinguishes his pictures from the dry scientific illustrations found in other botanical studies and creates an exceptionally beautiful visual experience. 'Pomona Britannica' is not only a didactic study, it is a masterpiece of illustration in which every picture is a testament to the artist's talent and ingenuity. Cf. Dunthorne 50; cf.

        Heinrich FUNK (1807 Herford/Westfalen-Stuttgart 1877) Windgepeitschte Landschaft

      - Heinrich Funk (1807 Herford/Westfalen-Stuttgart 1877). Windgepeitschte Landschaft. Bleistift auf Papier. -- Technik: -- Bleistift auf Papier. unten rechts signiert: "H Funk". -- Maße: -- 13,9 x 22,5 cm. -- Zustand: -- Hervorragender Zustand -- Beschreibung: -- Heinrich Funk besuchte seit 1829 die Kunstakademie Düsseldorf und war dort einer der ersten SchülerJohann Wilhelm Schirmers. Hier gehörte er zu jenem Kreis junger Künstler, die maßgeblich den Erfolg derDüsseldorfer Landschaftsmalerei bis zur Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts bestimmten. Zwar ging er bereit 1836 imGefolge von Alfred Rethel nach Frankfurt und lehrte seit 1854 als Professor an der Kunstschule in Stuttgart,doch der Tradition seines Lehrers blieb er Zeit seines Lebens treu. Unsere Zeichnung, die durchaus als komponierte Landschaft zu verstehen ist, besticht besonders durchFunks charakteristischen Einsatz des Bleistiftes. Dieser ist bei ihm nicht nur Linie, sondern auch Farbmaterial. Durch nuancierte Verwischungen erreicht er treffende tonale Abstufungen des Grau. Gleichzeitigevoziert der weiche Stift eine Stimmung, die sich über die reine Konturlinie nicht transportieren ließe. Sohaftet der Zeichnung bei aller Detailtreue etwas Schemenhaftes an, das sie über eine rein topographischeStudie hinaushebt. -- [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        KANKAI IBUN [Exotic tales from overseas traveling]

      [Japan], 1807. Original blue wrappers, paper labels. Some wear and rubbing to covers. Very good. An early Japanese manuscript set of the KANKAI IBUN, the extraordinary tale of Japanese shipwrecked sailors from the Wakimiya-maru, and their journey from 1792 to 1804, documenting their time in the Aleutians and in Siberia and their journey to the Court of the Tsar in St Petersburg. Rescued by agents of the Russian American Company, the sailors travelled in Russian Asia, and some of them were brought to St. Petersburg and the court of the Tsar. They were returned to Japan by the voyage of Krusenstern in 1803-6, and this manuscript also gives an important account of that voyage. In December 1793 the ship Vakamia-Maru sailed from Edo, Japan, with a cargo of wood and rice, and a crew of seventeen. A storm in the Pacific damaged the ship and eventually wrecked the crew in the Aleutian Islands. All but one of the crew managed to survive over a ten month period, when they were found by the agents of the Russian American Company and taken to Okhotsk. The Japanese sailors spent eight years in Irkutsk, before four of them went on to Saint Petersburg. There they came to the attention of the Tsar Alexander I, and visited his court. At that time Japan was still closed to Russia and most other European countries, and the Japanese sailors would have been as exotic to the Russians as the life of the court was to them. While there they saw many remarkable things, including the first Russian hot air balloon ascension in 1803. They remained in Saint Petersburg for over a year, when they were sent on Krusenstern's famous voyage into the Pacific - the first Russian circumnavigation - arriving back in Japan in 1805, after visiting various Pacific islands, including Hawaii. Krusenstern's voyage, one of the principal objectives of which was the establishment of diplomatic ties between Russia and Japan, was made under the patronage of Tsar Alexander I and Nikolai Rezanov, Russia's first envoy to Japan, who sailed on the expedition with his diplomatic mission. The two ships on this expedition, once they had rounded Cape Horn from the Atlantic, took slightly different routes across the Pacific: both visited the Sandwich Islands (Hawaii), but the Nadezhda (under Krusenstern, and with the Japanese on board) also visited the Marquesas, while the Neva (under Lisianski) visited Easter Island. The ships arrived in Japan in 1804, but the Japanese passengers did not disembark until early the next year. On their arrival home, the Japanese seamen were closely interrogated by authorities before being released. Their account was a rare, astonishing (and probably threatening) glimpse of the outside world, at a time when Japan was still to a large extent in cultural isolation. They were not treated well, and were considered almost treasonous; one tried to commit suicide. But their story was of great interest. The scholars Otsuki and Shimura recorded the story in an illustrated manuscript, which became a work of great fascination to Japanese readers. It circulated in manuscript throughout the nineteenth century, but remained effectively a 'clandestine' work until it was ultimately printed and published in 1899. The present manuscript dates from about 1807. KANKAI IBUN gives a vivid visual record of the Japanese men's experiences in Russia and the Pacific. The illustrations cover the journey across the cold wastes of the Russian Arctic (ethnographic and topographical scenes, and depictions of animals, beginning in the Aleutians), kayaks and Inuits, and life in St Petersburg: a visit to the St Petersburg Kunstkammer with a splendid double-page depiction of the giant globe there, the centre of the world's largest planetarium at the time, palaces, a fairground, the theatre, an ascent in Montgolfier balloons - the earliest manned Russian flight, portraits of Catherine the Great and Tsar Alexander I, drawings of western-style clothing, military uniforms, musical instruments, everyday objects such as coins and cutlery, and the Cyrillic alphabet; an important colour map of the world (based on a world map presented by Rezanov to the Japanese) which shows the route to Japan taken by Krusenstern, a South American alligator (labelled as a crocodile), as well as a marvellous depiction of a Marquesan man with full body tattoos and a Marquesan canoe. Early images show natives, objects and natural history of the Aleutian Islands. Other native peoples are illustrated with a great sense of wonder. There are magnificent depictions of Krusenstern's ships. Manuscripts of KANKAI IBUN are extraordinarily rare. A close study of a similar manuscript in a Russian collection has been made by Professor V.N. Goreglyad (The Manuscript of "Kankai Ibun" in the Collection of the St. Petersburg Branch of the Institute of Oriental Studies, in Manuscripta Orientalia. Vol. 3, No 2, June 1997, pp. 58-67; available online at http://www.orientalstudies.ru/eng). A wonderful, highly illustrated example of the first widely circulated Japanese account of the outside world, for many people in the Edo period.

        Tales from Shakespear: Designed for the use of young persons.

      London: printed for Thomas Hodgkins, at the Juvenile Library,, 1807. 2 volumes, duodecimo (172 x 105 mm). Contemporary tan half calf, spines with numbers and twin rules in black, marbled paper sides, edges speckled black. Housed in a brown morocco-backed box. Engraved frontispieces and 18 plates after William Mulready. Expertly rebacked preserving original backstrips, edges of boards lightly worn and with minor chips, faint partial browning to boards and endpapers, front inner hinges starting but still holding firm, internally extremely clean and free from any chipping or tears. A very well preserved set in excellent condition. First edition, first impression, with the imprint of the printer T. Davison on the verso of p. 235 in Vol. I, and with the Hanway Street address in the final adverts. The Juvenile Library was the brainchild of William Godwin at whose suggestion his friend, Charles Lamb agreed to adapt the best known of Shakespeare's plays into prose, specifically, as Lamb's preface states, "meant to be submitted to the young reader as an introduction to the study of Shakespeare". Although not mentioned in the first edition, the work was a joint effort between Lamb and his sister Mary, who contributed the Comedies. 'Lamb's Tales', as it subsequently became known, is one of a select group of books never to be out of print since initial publication and made an important contribution to establishing the retelling of classic literature for a younger audience as a worthy pursuit for serious authors.

The translated poems include three translations from the splenetic Roman love-poet Catullus, as well as versions of Aeschlus, Anacreon, Virgil and Euripides.
