        A rare early-19th century peepshow depicting the Battle of Eylau (where France acquired its taste for horse meat)

      A peepshow, housed in its original box (8.75" x 6.5" x .5") bearing six hand-colored engraved panels. Entitled NAPOLEON and the battle at Eylau fought the 9th February, 1807 / NAPOLEON, et la battaille à Eylau donnée le 9 Février 1807 printed upon a pair of French tricolor flags which flank a small 1.25" x .75" window at the center which, when the top of the box is extended fully (about 28"), reveals a beautifully rendered three-dimensional battle scene. Napoleon appears on horseback (at left) in the third panel from the top. Although the outer box bears a good deal of wear including soiling and toning, the interior is as remarkably clean and bright as they day it was manufactured. The Battle of Eylau was an enormous but inconclusive battle that took place between Napoleon's Grande Armée and the Russians in East Prussia. The two day battle involved over 150,000 soldiers and resulted in approximately 20,000-40,000 casualties between the two sides. Although the French won possession of the field at the end of the day, they had failed to destroy the Russian army. Riding over the fields the next morning, Marshal Ney remarked, "Quei massacre! Et sans Résultat" ("What a massacre! And without result!"). Incidentally, it was at the Battle of Eylau where the French acquired a taste for horse meat. Napoleon's surgeon-in-chief at the battle, Baron Dominique-Jean Larry, recommended dead battlefield horses to feed starving soldiers in the field.

        Rime

      Milan - The Italian Company of Classic Typography, 1807 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A complete set of Chiabrera's RhymesComplete in 3 volumesBound in quarter leather with marbled boards and gilt letteringNameplate belonging to Charles J. Bewlay of Carleton Hall to the front pastedown. Gabriello Chiabrera (1552 1638) was an Italian poet, sometimes called the Italian Pindar. As amaker of odes in all their elaborate pomp of strophe and antistrophe, master of new and complex rhythms, coiner of ambitious words and composite epithets, employer of audacious transpositions and inversions, and the inventor of a new system of poetic diction it is not surprising that Chiabrera should have been compared with Ronsard. Both were destined to suffer eclipse as great and sudden as had been their glory. Ronsard was succeeded by Malherbe and by French literature, properly so-called; Chiabrera was the last of the great Italians, and after him literature languished till the second renaissance under Manzoni. Chiabrera, however, was a man of merit, apart from that of the mere innovator. Setting aside his epics and dramas (one of the latter received the honours of translation at the hands of Nicolas Chrtien, a sort of scenic du Bartas), much of his work remains yet readable and pleasant. His grand Pindarics are dull, it is true, but some of his Canzonette, like the anacreontics of Ronsard, are exceedingly elegant and graceful. His autobiographical sketch is also extremely interesting. The simple old poet, with his adoration of Greek (when a thing pleased him greatly he was wont to talk of it as Greek Verse), his delight in journeys and sight-seeing, his dislike for literary talk save with intimates and equals, his vanities and vengeances, his pride in the memory of favours bestowed on him by popes and princes, his infinita maraviglia over Virgil's versification and metaphor, his fondness for masculine rhymes and blank verse, his quiet Christianity, is a figure deserving perhaps of more study than is likely to be bestowed on that new world of art which it was his glory to fancy his own, by discovery and by conquest. Condition: The binding are firm. There is some significantwear to the extremities including loss to the spine panels of Volumes 2 and 3, and the spine panel of Volume 1 is present but detached. There is also some bumping and rubbing. Internally the pages are bright and clean with only the odd spot, and some mild spotting to the first and last couple ofpages. Overall the condition of the books is good only due to the bindings..

        THE STRANGER IN AMERICA: CONTAINING OBSERVATIONS MADE DURING A LONG RESIDENCE IN THAT COUNTRY, ON THE GENIUS, MANNERS AND CUSTOMS OF THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES.

      London. 1807. - 22,499,[1]pp. plus engraved titlepage, nine colored plates, one plan, and 6pp. of advertisements. Quarto. Contemporary drab boards; rebacked, preserving portion of the original spine, corners renewed. Boards somewhat soiled and worn. Minor foxing and toning to text. Very good. The rare issue of this important work with the plates colored; almost all copies have the plates in sepia only. Janson lived in America from 1793 to 1805, beginning in Rhode Island (where he failed in business) before travelling in the American South, especially Virginia, the Carolinas, and Georgia, where he was defrauded in the Yazoo land scheme. He did not like what he saw, or at least felt that the rise of Jeffersonian democracy was guided by the devil. Clark sums up the book well: "Janson draws a picture of unrelieved black, but one worthy of attention because of the length of his stay and the breadth of his interests. He covers an astonishing variety of subjects in a loose topical arrangement." "A petulant view of U.S. life" - Howes. The handsomely produced book contains nine colored plates depicting six scenes in Philadelphia, one of Mount Vernon, and one each in Boston and New York. The view on the engraved titlepage is the earliest known published image of the White House and the Mt. Vernon plate one of the earliest of Washington's home. Copies with the plates fully colored are rare; it almost always is found with sepia plates. The appendix to the book contains, on pages 482-489, what appears to be the first British printing of Thomas Jefferson's December, 1806 message announcing the completion of the Lewis and Clark expedition, as well as other western explorations. This is unnoticed by bibliographers and should seem to qualify it for inclusion in Wagner-Camp, though it is not listed there. HOWES J59, "b." CLARK II:99. SABIN 35770. ABBEY 648.

        Fugitive slaves

      - Single leaf printed circular, 4to., approximately 300 words; addressed to "friends" of the New York State Vigilance Committee; fold-line ---- Abolitionist Charles B. Ray (1807-1886), the pastor of New York's Bethesda Congregational Church, was appointed corresponding secretary of the New York State Vigilance Committee in 1848. Membership was largely comprised of free black men, committed to enabling fugitive slaves. In this March 10, 1849, circular, Ray contended that the committee's "labors have been neither inconsiderable, nor wholly concealed from public observation. It has afforded succor and guidance to hundreds of trembling and needy bondmen and their now happy families. Its works of commiseration and charity will not soon be forgotten." Since the committee's inception two years earlier, attested Ray, "more than 400 persons have been received, counseled, and provided for, as fully as our means and circumstances would permit." Fearing that "they are coming to us in rapidly augmenting numbers," the 41-year-old ex-bootmaker beseeched friends for pecuniary support and information regarding "any suitable neighborhood whither fugitive Slaves may be sent." The appeal proved highly successful. Between 1851 and 1853, the committee relieved nearly seven hundred "destitute and helpless strangers with vigor and effect." When later soliciting funds for escaped bondsmen in Scotland, Ray's colleague, James W.C. Pennington, assured members of a women's antislavery group that the New York State Vigilance Committee "was doing its work [so] well that soon the time would come when they might raise the chant, 'Jehovah hath triumphed, his people are free!'" An exceedingly rare document.

Kurt Sprengel (1766-1833) was a Prussian botanist and physician and professor of Botany at Halle. In his field he was viewed as the most prestigious professor in Germany. "Sprengel strongly promoted the microscopic examination of plants and studied their structure, developing his own theory of plant-cell formation. Although soon superseded, his ideas about the nature of cells and fibers provided an essential stimulus for further investigations by notable botanists, such as Heirich F. Link, Johann J. Bernhardi, and Ludorf C. Treviranus" (DSB). Copies with the plates coloured are rare.//Stafleu & Cowan 12.675.

        Cospicuo carteggio ottocentesco, inedito, di grande rilevanza risorgimentale, intercorso tra importanti personaggi, quali Giuseppe Garibaldi, Francesco Crispi, Giovanni Nicotera, Felletti, Benigno Paraviso, Stirling Begbie, e alcuni membri della famiglia Orlando.

      Significativo lotto di 18 missive inedite, così articolato: a) un biglietto autografo di Giuseppe Garibaldi (Nizza, 1807 - 1882), inviato da Roma in data 19 febbraio 1873, a mò di lettera di presentazione di tal Semenza; b) 5 lunghe lettere autografe di Francesco Crispi (Ribera, 1818 - 1901), quattro delle quali in busta affrancata e viaggiata, inviate fra il 1872 e il 1874 a Luigi Orlando, in cui si parla di argomenti personali, di questioni economiche e di investimenti e pagamenti bancari; c) 3 lettere e un biglietto autografi, datati 1875 e 1883, di pugno di Giovanni Nicotera (Sambiase, 1828 - 1894) a Luigi Orlando; d) Due lettere autografe di Benigno Paraviso inviate a Paolo Orlando in data 11 e 21 luglio 1860 (una affrancata e viaggiata); e) Cinque missive autografe in lingua francese di Thomas Sterling Begbie, inviate da Londra (4, Mansion House Place) tra il 19 giugno e il 27 luglio 1860; f) Una lettera autografa, priva di data, inviata da tal Felletti [uomo di fiducia degli Orlando a Londra], in cui parla di attrezzature idrauliche per bastimenti militari. Di particolare interesse le corrispondenze di Paraviso, mercante italiano attivo a Birmingham, di Begbie, un inglese assai influente a Londra e collegato alla "British Columbia" e di Felletti: in esse si parla diffusamente di cospicui trasferimenti di armi dall'Inghilterra all'Italia. Felletti è un uomo di fiducia di Orlando a Londra, mentre Paraviso e Begbie sono due mercanti o mediatori, incaricati di trovare le armi necessarie all'impresa di Garibaldi. Scrive Paraviso l?11 luglio 1860 a Paolo Orlando, che si trova a Londra: ?La fabbrica nel Yorkshire alla quale ordinai i 14 cannoni per bastimento ora mi scrive che la sola specie che suole fare pel governo inglese sono di ferro fuso ?Cast Iron? ?.. Sempre Paraviso scrive il 21 luglio a Orlando, che nel frattempo si è trasferito a Liverpool: ?I 1250 fucili Enfield, le pistole e i coltelli d?abbordaggio partiranno da qui [Birmingham] senza fallo la sera di mercoledi prossimo. Faccia grazia di significarmi se per i detti fucili debbo pur?anche provvedere i fulminanti e che quantitativo?....?. Intrigante anche la corrispondenza tra Begbie e Orlando: in particolare nelle missive del 26 e 27 luglio 1860 Begbie cita G.G. [Giuseppe Garibaldi] e la Calabria, ed esprime ?grand regret que le général est blessé à Milazzo?. "Giuseppe Orlando di Colosa è considerato il capostipite della famiglia. D?origine siracusana ma palermitano d?adozione, possiedeva a Palermo un?officina meccanica a cui si rivolgevano gli agricoltori dell?isola per la costruzione di mulini e altre macchine agricole. Alla sua morte, avvenuta nel 1825, lascia la moglie Rosalia Castiglione e sei figli giovani; Luigi Orlando (1814 - 1896), Salvatore (1818 - 1881), Giuseppe (1820 - 1893), Paolo ( (1824 - 1891), Domenico (18.. - 1837) e Lucia (...). Nel 1834 il primogenito Luigi Orlando aderisce alla Giovine Italia, seguito poi dagli altri fratelli. Dopo un periodo in esilio a Malta e in seguito al fallimento dei primi moti insurrezionali siciliani Luigi torna in patria e s?impegna attivamente nell?officina di famiglia introducendo la forza del vapore nella costruzione dei mulini da grano, e riscuote successo con la fabbricazione delle prime molle per materassi. Il carattere imprenditoriale orientato all'innovazione della meccanica è spesso osteggiato dai Borboni, vedendo essi nel progresso un possibile nemico. Luigi è più volte costretto a lasciare la Sicilia. Nel 1847, trasferitisi a Roma, Luigi e Giuseppe dimostrano entusiasmo verso la rivoluzione e la costituzione della Repubblica romana, portando tra l'altro con sé un tricolore, dono degli insorti palermitani, e riportandolo poi nel capoluogo siciliano. Luigi, in Campidoglio, sale in cima alla statua equestre di Marco Aurelio issandovi la bandiera italiana. Alla notizia della momentanea sconfitta del potere Borbonico a Palermo e in tutta la Sicilia in seguito ai moti del 1848, Paolo e Luigi rientrano subito e sono incaricati di recarsi in Francia per comprare forniture di armi. Ma i francesi e gli inglesi, inizialmente parteggianti con la causa risorgimentale raffreddano presto il loro ardore, mandando a monte il progetto. Gli Orlando combattono a Catania ma nell?aprile 1849, dopo un anno ed un giorno d?indipendenza, il Parlamento accetta le condizioni dei Borboni che rientrano nella capitale. Gli Orlando assieme a molti altri patrioti sono costretti a fuggire a Genova, dove trovano le condizioni favorevoli per creare una florida attività cantieristica, siderurgica e meccanica. Gli Orlando nonostante l'impegno industriale continuano a sostenere la causa dell'unità italiana. Sono in ottimi rapporti sia con Mazzini (1805 - 1872) che con Cavour (1816 - 1861), che affida a Luigi la direzione dell?Ansaldo. Alla fine degli anni '50 i fratelli Orlando si riaffacciano alla politica come protagonisti diretti. Casa Orlando a Genova diventa centro di cospirazione. Rosolino Pilo (1810 - 1860) ne è un assiduo frequentatore con Francesco Crispi (1818 - 1901). È proprio Crispi a presentare Garibaldi agli Orlando. La loro comunione di vedute e d'azione è oggi ancora confermata dalla numerosa corrispondenza conservata dalla famiglia. Nel 1857 gli Orlando sostengono con mezzi e denaro l'impresa meridionale di Carlo Pisacane (1818 - 1857). Giuseppe partecipa attivamente alla spedizione dei Mille al comando delle macchine del ?Lombardo? e del ?Piemonte? (offerte dalla famiglia Rubattino), ma al momento dello sbarco Garibaldi ordina a Giuseppe di rimanere a bordo del battello. Ciò contribuirà ad impedire la cattura delle due imbarcazioni: Giuseppe, infatti, al sopraggiungere della flotta borbonica, aprì i boccaporti allagando ed affondando i due bastimenti. Questo gli valse la medaglia di bronzo al valor militare. Nella spedizione dei mille Luigi dona a Garibaldi una serie di cannoni fatti costruire appositamente nelle fonderie dell'Ansaldo. Il successo della spedizione dei Mille nel 1860 Garibald

        AN ACCOUNT OF A VOYAGE UP THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER, FROM ST. LOUIS TO ITS SOURCE; MADE UNDER THE ORDERS OF THE WAR DEPARTMENT, BY LIEUT. PIKE, OF THE UNITED STATES ARMY, IN THE YEARS 1805 AND 1806. COMPILED FROM MR. PIKE'S JOURNAL.

      [Washington. 1807]. - 68pp. (pp. 65-68 in facsimile) and folding map. Three quarter calf and marbled boards. Last two leaves of text in expert facsimile. Ex-Library of Congress, with their perforated stamp on the titlepage. Light scattered foxing. Map with scattered foxing and light toning in places. Overall, still a decent copy. One of the rarest works of western exploration, this publication precedes the author's better known volume by three years. Only a few copies are known, and not all of them are accompanied by the map, which illustrates the Mississippi from St. Louis north to its presumed headwaters. The journal describes Pike's attempts to locate the headwaters of the Mississippi. His notable work on this expedition led to his appointment as leader of the western expedition several years later. A manuscript copy of this work in the Library of Congress is in the hand of Nicholas King, and the text was assembled by King from Pike's notes. The report was meant to be distributed to Congress before they adjourned in March 1807, but the publication was not completed in time. Jefferson ordered it sent to some members of Congress and others, and personally forwarded a copy to the American Philosophical Society. All bibliographers agree on the tremendous rarity of this work. This firm sold a perfect copy of this work for $30,000 in 2006. WAGNER-CAMP 6a. GRAFF 3289. HOWES P372, "d." STREETER SALE 1774.

"Edizione originale" di questa importante opera. Cfr. Brunet,II, p. 600 - The Hill Collection of Pacific Voyages, 467: ?D?Entrecasteaux (1737 - 1793), French admiral and governor of Mauritius, was sent to the Pacific in 1791 to search for La Pérouse. No traces of the lost expedition were found, but in the course of his search D?Entrecasteaux made important geographical discoveries.. The second captain was Huon Kermadec, after whom the islands North of New Zealand were named. The naturalist for the expedition was Jacques Julien de Labillardière. They explored the West and Southwest coasts of Australia, the South coast of Tasmania, the West coast of New Caledonia, and visited Tonga and the Santa Cruz Islands. The D?Entrecasteaux Islands near New Guinea were discovered and named for the admiral, who later died of colic off the north coast of New Guinea. The French Revolution divided the expedition; the royalists joined the Dutch on Java, and the republicans fell into the hands of the British Royal Navy. Also captured were the expedition?s journal, charts, and natural history specimens. Sir Joseph Banks ordered that they be delivered to the coast of France under a flag of truce?. L?Atlante con piccole macchie al frontesp. e alla prima carta geografica; lievi aloni margin., altrim. ben conservato. Magnifici sono i volumi di testo, in carta distinta e azzurrina. .
