(Tuileries) TROLL (Johann Heinrich).
(Paris: chez Bance l'Ainé) n.d. ca. 1807. A rare suite of eight aquatint views of the gardens of the Tuileries at the beginning of the nineteenth century. They are as follows: Vue du Grand Bassin prise derrière la Statue de L'Automne; Bosquet des Lutteurs ; Méléagre, Allée des Orangers; Bosquet du Centaure Chiron; Palais des Tuileries a l'Entrée de l'Allée des Orangers; Apollon et Daphné; Vue prise près du grand Bassin; Escalier du Milieu de la Terrasse du cote de la Rivière. In addition to structures, large trees, edifices and ornaments, including sculpture, there are people, including children, in contemporary dress and, occasionally, animals, enlivening each scene. Two copies in CCFR are described as "8 estampes aquatint" and the BNF notes that the publication date is arrived at from the dates when the illustrated statues were known to have been present in the gardens. Rare as a complete set; OCLC records only one copy in the US (Dumbarton Oaks). Eight aquatint engravings, numbers engraved, excepting numbers 2 and 5, impressions measure 24 cm by 19 cm; bound together on stubs. Later binding of half-cloth, marbled paper over boards with gilt tooled leather title piece on upper covers, title printed in black on spine; marbled endpapers with two ex-libris; plate 2 is trimmed 1 cm shorter than the other plates, but still displays its title, while its plate number is pencilled rather than printed; this plate also has the faintest water stain on lower margin, not affecting image; plate 5 is also numbered in pencil; the paper of several plates is darkened or soiled, but this h … [Click Below for Full Description]

CLARENDON, Edward Hyde, Earl of.
Oxford: at the Clarendon Press, 1807. 3 volumes bound as 6, tall octavo (265 x 171 mm). Contemporary dark blue straight-grained morocco, raised bands, titles and decorations to compartments gilt, two-line gilt border on sides enclosing attractive intertwined dot-and-Greek-key roll tool, all edges gilt, gilt roll tool turn-ins, marbled endpapers. Extremities very lightly rubbed and bumped, light browning to flyleaves, occasional minor foxing to margins. An excellent set. Engraved title page vignette of the Clarendon Building. Large paper issue - Lowndes notes that only 50 such sets were printed - of this very appealing Oxford edition presented here in a choice Regency binding. First published between 1702 and 1707 (with the first octavo edition appearing in 1705-06) Clarendon's great History has "remained in the mind because of his literary achievement—the fashioning of the most sophisticated and finely balanced history yet written in English (or written for a long time afterwards)—and for an unmistakable rhetorical voice. Clarendon's writings—and his own life—were steeped in the literary stoicism of the early seventeenth century; but in the History he created a distinctive work of art based on a highly wrought style, a forensic dissection of character and issue, and a sense of the depth of individuals' moral responsibility for their action" (ODNB). A lovely set. Lowndes Vol. I Part II p. 467.

Réunion en un volume de trois brochures de Bernard-François Balzac, père de l'écrivain, adjoint au maire et administrateur de l'Hospice général de Tours. Dans le premier mémoire Balzac propose d'élever entre le Louvre et les Tuileries une pyramide colossale dédiée à la gloire de Napoléon. Il fait part au ministre de l'Intérieur de ce projet, auquel fut préféré l'Arc de Triomphe de Percier et Fontaine. « Ces brochures, d'une extrême rareté, révèlent en B.-F. Balzac un esprit curieux, disciple des encyclopédistes, ami des lumières et du progrès épris de liberté, mais partisan de l'ordre, quelque peu idéologue, mais aussi homme d'action d'esprit pratique et concret » (Catalogue de l'exposition Balzac, Bibliothèque nationale, 1950, n°16).

Brydges, Harford Jones.
1807. 8vo. 2 vols. VIII, 472, XXXIV. (4), V, (6)-238 pp. With 2 lithogr. frontispieces, 9 lithogr. plates on Chine appliqué and 1 folding lithogr. map of Central Arabia and Egypt. Contemp. tan calf bindings, spines renewed in period style. First edition. The second volume - and the map - are devoted entirely to the so-called "Nedjed Country". - "The first political and commercial treaty between Great Britain and Persia was concluded in 1801, when the East India Company sent John Malcolm to the Court of Fath Ali Shah. Persia undertook to attack the Afghans if they were to move against India, while the British undertook to come to the defence of Persia if they were attacked by either the Afghans or the French. When the Russians intensified their attacks on the Caucasian Provinces in 1803 annexing large territories, Fath Ali Shah appealed to the British for help, but was refused on the grounds that Russia was not included in the Treaty. The Persians thus turned to the French and concluded the Treaty of Finkenstein in 1807. It was against this background that Harford Jones, who was the chief resident at Basra for the East India Company, was sent to Persia by the Foreign Office in 1809 [...] The French who had now entered into a treaty with Russia (the Treaty of Tilsit in 1807) had lost interest in Persia and removed their political and military missions. Thus the British were able to conclude another treaty with Persia (the Treaty of Friendship and Alliance, also called the Treaty of Tehran) which bound Britain to assist Persia in case any European nation invaded her (even if B … [Click Below for Full Description]

LEWIS, Matthew Gregory (1775-1818)
No place: No publisher. Three volumes bound in one. Thick 12mo (19.5 cm), page edges untrimmed, rebound in modern quarter goatskin and marbled boards, gilt-lettered leather spine label. new endpapers, binder's blanks front and rear and before the other two title leaves. pp [2], (viii), 262.; (2), 158 ; [2], 198. With the original printed spine labels tipped in. Page edges yellowed; two old catalogue descriptions tipped in at front fly leaf (one calling it "the complete text"), scattered foxing; else fine. Old bookplate of George Fales Baker, M.D., laid in (skull with snake coming out an eye socket, burning oil lamp, open book, Latin motto). Dr. Baker, 1863-1929, was a wealthy Philadelphia financier. Very scarce early printing (unexpurgated?) of Lewis's famous eroto-Gothic novel, perhaps the most famous of all Gothic novels. Not in OCLC, the British Library, or COPAC. THE MONK, a sensation from its first publication in 1796, was written in ten weeks when the author was only 19. It had admirers as disparate as Sir Walter Scott and the Marquis de Sade. However, many others considered it obscene, blasphemous and "a curst book- full of every Thing that shd not be anywhere" (Hester Lynch Thrale Piozzi). And indeed, even to a modern reader, the work is remarkably bold in its eroticism and impiety. To avoid legal action, and to appease his heartsick father, Lewis expunged most of the offending passages beginning with the fourth edition of 1798. The present copy has the same pagination as the Paris: Theophilus Barrois, 1807, edition, which was illustrated (though not all copies wer … [Click Below for Full Description]

Marshall, John
Philadelphia: C. P. Wayne, 1807. unbound. Map. Uncolored engraving. Sheet measures 10.75 x 9.5".This scarce 1807 Revolutionary War-era map covers the regions of Maine, New Hampshire, New York, and Canada, depicting the scene of operations of the Northern Army. In particular, it highlights the wilderness route General Benedict Arnold took on his second expedition to attack Quebec City. The important Hudson Valley theater of war is also represented, including the strategic location of Fort Ticonderoga, which changed hands several times during the war. Other important scenes of battle, including Bennington, Saratoga, Still Water, Crown Point, Montreal, and Quebec are also identified. Topographical elements help to contextualize the armies' paths and describe the space between important locations such as Cape Ann, Lake Champlain, Lake George, the Connecticut River, St. Lawrence River, Kennebeck River, and Lake St. Peter. The map was part of the rare 1807 atlas volume belonging to Chief Justice John Marshall's seminal six volume biography of Washington. In good condition with minor wear along original folds. John James Marshall (1755--1835) was the fourth Chief Justice of the United States. A renowned Federalist, Marshall's admiration for George Washington led him to publish "The Life of Washington," a five-volume biography of the famed President and general. In 1832, he produced a revised and condensed two-volume edition with hand-colored maps. This map attests both to Marshall's influential work and to the skill of the general it honors.

London: Laurie & Whittle, 1807. 1ff. Framed engraved writing sheet with a mirror over the blank area in the center usually reserved for examples of penmanship. The mirror is near-contemporary to the writing sheet, and together they create an attractive piece that perhaps could have served as decoration in a child's room. The ten hand-colored illustrations bordering the mirror depict the pantomime of Harlequin and Mother Goose or, the Golden Egg, featuring the characters of the Harlequinade. This popular and very successful comic pantomime by Thomas John Dibdin debuted in London in December, 1806, with famed comic actor Joseph Grimaldi in the role of the clown. The writing sheet is entirely intact and unmarked: the silvering of the mirror was painted onto the inside of the frame glass and is not adhered to the paper. The date printed at the bottom of the sheet is March 25, 1807, and the print is numbered 88 in the lower left corner. These ornamented writing sheets also known as writing blanks, "school pieces," or "Christmas pieces," were used to encourage good penmanship in children. The blank space was filled in with a sampler of a child's best penmanship, and the completed page was often given as a gift from children to their parents. Laurie & Whittle were best known as London publishers of maps and atlases, but the firm also published prints and some juvenile items. Slight toning to the paper, else fine. This writing sheet is a remarkable survival and an unusual, creative presentation of a piece of juvenile ephemera. In a black and gold frame, which shows some rubbing to … [Click Below for Full Description]
