1808 - PASSAPORTO POLICE GENERAL DE L'EMPIRE AU NOM DE NAPOLEON I EMPERATEUR DES FRANCAIS Passaporto napoleonico originale. Il passaporto contiene parti manoscritte e parti stampate. Il passaporto contiene una bellissima filigrana raffigurante il profilo di Napoleone Bonaparte incoronato d'alloro inscritto in un cerchio che riporta la scritta "Napoleon Empereur Des Francaises". Oggetto imperdibile per i collezionisti di storia e di Napoleonica. Il Primo Impero fu instaurato in Francia da Napoleone Bonaparte per sostituire il Consolato. Ebbe inizio il 18 maggio 1804, quando un senatoconsulto[5] proclamò Bonaparte Imperatore dei Francesi (Empereur des Français) e terminò nell'aprile 1814 con l'abdicazione di Napoleone e l'esilio sull'isola d'Elba. Il Primo Impero fu seguito dalla Restaurazione, interrotta dai cosiddetti "Cento giorni", dal 20 marzo al 22 giugno 1815, che portarono Napoleone alla sconfitta di Waterloo. Il plebiscito del 6 novembre 1804 legittimò il passaggio al Primo Impero. Napoleone Bonaparte fu consacrato imperatore a Notre-Dame il 2 dicembre 1804 con il nome di Napoleone I. In seguito alle sue prime, folgoranti vittorie come imperatore, Napoleone mise fine all'obsoleta istituzione del Sacro Romano Impero, imponendo all'imperatore d'Austria di abbandonare quel titolo e istituendo la Confederazione del Reno, un'unione di staterelli tedeschi (Baviera, Baden, Württemberg, Hesse-Darmstadt e Sassonia) sotto la diretta influenza di Napoleone in qualità di "protettore". In Italia, dove istituì il regno d'Italia, Napoleone si appropriò anche di Venezia. Affidò quin … [Click Below for Full Description]

In many respects the illustrations done in this way, which tend to be the topographical views, are more successful than the equivalent line engravings in the original and subsequent French editions.l Ibrahim-Hilmy I, p. 174.

LUTGERS, Petrus Josephus.
[8], XVIII pp. + 87 plates.Enlarged second edition of the most detailed and extensive set of views of stately houses and their gardens, other buildings and landscapes, all in the vicinity of Utrecht, with 88 tinted lithographs (including the title-page). Most of the views show people in the foreground, and some include boats on the canals, horses, cattle, dogs, etc. The view of the town of Rhenen (35 kilometres east of Utrecht) even shows the recently introduced steam boats on the river. All were drawn in situ by Lutgers (1808-1874), who spent about ten years preparing this last of his four great series of views. This time, however, he used tint blocks, giving a beige background to most of each print, but with a few areas left white to indicate the lighting or to highlight a feature. The lithographic title-page is followed by a two-page dedication to the queen (Sophia Frederica Mathilda, wife of King Willem III), Lutgers' two-page preface, a two-page list of the plates, and eighteen pages with Hofdijk's notes on the history and owners of the houses depicted.Some of the plates foxed. Binding worn along the extremities with a few minor damages to the spine. Overall in good condition.l Landwehr, Coloured plates 356; Scheen, p. 732; Thieme & Becker XXIII, p. 480.

TAYLER, William.
[16] pp; [6] plates.First and only edition of an ethnographic study of native Indian people by William Tayler (1808-1892), who was at that time Acting Salt Agent of the Central Division of Cuttack for the East India Company. He dedicated his work to "Lady William Bentinck" (born Lady Mary Acheson 1809-1850), who was the wife of the Governor-General of India. The illustrations were drawn by Tayler himself, who was an amateur artist and drew much of the Indian daily life that he encountered. He selected the present 6 drawings to be published and had them lithographed by J. Bouvier. The first 3 plates not only show the ways of Indian people, but even more so the luxurious life of the English in India. The first plate, The Young Civilian's Toilet shows a young man relaxing while being treated by several servants, who are named Anglo-Indians. The room is strewn with objects of leisure. The next 2 plates, The Young Ladies Toilet & The Breakfast show equal scenes. The other 3 plates are more ethnographic in nature, showing native Indians in their everyday life: Women grinding at the mill; the Sunyasees (Sannyasis) & The village barber. Tayler later became a controversial figure for his excessively harsh oppression of Indian people when he was the commissioner of Patna.Spine and covers slightly worn, pages a little frayed, some foxing on the text pages.

CUVIER, Georges and Alexandre BRONGNIART.
[3], [1 blank], [1], [1 blank], VIII, 428 pp.First edition of the wholly revised and expanded version of the Géographie minéralogique des environs de Paris (1808), "a landmark in the history of geology" (DSB III). In this work the zoologist and palaeontologist Cuvier (1769-1832) collaborated with the geologist Brogniart (1770-1847), who did most of the work, in surveying the region of the Paris basin to determine the order of the strata in which Cuvier had found fossils, to determine their relative ages. "The significance of Brongniart's stratigraphy of the Paris "basin" was quickly recognized. The general nature of stratified sedimentary rocks and the importance of observing their order of superposition were commonplaces in geology before his time. The highest, and therefore most recent, stratified deposit that could be recognized over a wide area was the Chalk, ... Brongniart's work proved that above the Chalk was a complex series of stratified rocks, many of them evidently formed by very slow deposition. By implication, therefore, the time that must have elapsed since the end of the Chalk period was greatly extended ... Second, the strata showed an alternation between marine and freshwater conditions, countering the earlier assumption that all stratified rocks had been deposited in a gradually shrinking ocean... The third important feature of Brongniart's stratigraphy was his use of fossils for the detailed correlation of strata. ... Brongniart's work demonstrated the value of precisely collected and identified fossils as criteria for tracing a detailed series of strata, … [Click Below for Full Description]

[HORSE BREEDING]
Amassed over the last fifty years and covering four centuries of relevant material, the present collection spans all aspects of the history and development of the breeding of Arabian horses. It comprises within itself many books from the Le Vivier collection: fine press books of racing and thoroughbred literature produced by Eugene Connett's famous Derrydale press, as well as numerous important items from the library of Duke Maximilian in Bavaria (1808-88), himself a great enthusiast of Arabic horses. Including items of exceptional rarity, such as the rare, beautifully illustrated first German edition of Friedrich von Eisenberg's famous riding school (1747), which lauds Arabian horses as "the finest produced by the Orient". Also, we here find the early Arabian Horse Registry of America Stud Books, and many items also bear presentation inscriptions from the authors (Carl Raswan, Gladys Brown Edwards, etc.). The common practice in such a specialized field, most of the publications here were issued for a very limited circulation in runs of 1000 or fewer individually-numbered copies. As a reference library for breeding the collection is unparalleled: almost any Arabian horse's forefathers will be found amongst the exhaustive stud books and breeding serials from the 18th to the 20th century, from Australia, Poland, Spain, Russia, the USA, etc., often with accompanying photographs. Perhaps the most famous reference work is the Raswan Index, of which only 380 copies were printed (and many destroyed by a flood). Raswan became an expert on the Arabian breed through his lengthy trips … [Click Below for Full Description]

Nine copies were reserved for the Ottoman Sultan Selim III, other high ranking Turkish officials and the engineering library in Istanbul that published the atlas; many of the 41 copies intended for sale were destroyed in a warehouse fire during the Janissary Revolt of 1808. Wikipedia attempts to list known complete and incomplete copies and estimates that “a maximum of 20 ... might survive” but only 10 are “confirmed to exist”. It is the second great printed atlas from Islamic world, after Katip Celebi, Kitab-i cihannüma (Istanbul, 1732), the first atlas printed in the Islamic world, which remains closer to the traditional Islamic style. The present atlas, a prestigious project for the Ottoman palace, bearing the seal of approval of the Sultan Selim III, was one of the avant garde enterprises promoted by Mahmoud Ra'if Efendi to introduce Western technical and scientific knowledge into the Ottoman state. Ra'if served as secretary to the Ottoman ambassador in London from 1793 to 1797, and in that period he probably acquired a copy of a wo … [Click Below for Full Description]

[MANUSCRIPT]. [REINST, Pieter Hendrik and Jan Hendrik van KINSBERGEN].
[376], [2 blank] pp.Detailed and extensively illustrated ca. 1808 manuscript signalling manual, illustrating and describing hundreds of different flags and pennants, all drawn in colour. It contains extracts of all 8 "books" of a printed manual. The earliest known edition of any parts of this work was compiled by the Dutch Vice-Admiral Jan Hendrik van Kinsbergen (1735-1819) with assistance of Pieter Hendrik Reynst and published by for the use of the Dutch navy: Generale zeinen, voor een vloot of esquader oorlog-schepen, Amsterdam, Johannes van Keulen and sons. The STCN dates it between 1763 and 1766. The contents and preface of the present manuscript, noting all 8 "books" and referring to the work of Van Kinsbergen and Reynst, match those of the 1791 edition with the same title, Amsterdam, Gerard Hulst van Keulen, 1791, which has only a few copper plates of generic flags that had to be completed by hand. But it includes texts added to the 1791 edition for the printing of the 1808 edition. From 1773 onwards, Kinsbergen developed a more simplified system of signalling with flags, greatly limiting the number of flags and pennants to prevent fatal errors.With the edges of some leaves slightly tattered and with a few minor stains, but generally in very good condition. Spine and hinges cracked and they and the corners restored.l NNBW X, cols. 838-842.; Prud'homme van Reine, Jan Hendrik van Kinsbergen, pp. 184-185.

GRÉGOIRE (Henri, dit l'abbé).
Paris, Maradan, 1808. In-8 de xvj-287-(1) pp.; demi-chagrin bleu, dos à nerfs orné, tranches marbrées (reliure de la fin du XIX° siècle). Première édition. En 1808, l'abbé Grégoire, malgré sa nomination comme comte d'empire, fut l'un des rares sénateurs à s'opposer à la politique de Napoléon. Dans cet ouvrage, rapidement considéré comme l'un de ses textes les plus importants, il continua son combat contre la traite et l'esclavage (qui avait été rétabli en 1802). Son sujet étant, apparemment, cantonné au domaine littéraire, le livre ne fut pas soumis à la censure, appliquée aux écrits politiques. Il put ainsi y affirmer : "L'opinion de l'infériorité des Nègres n'est pas nouvelle. La prétendue supériorité des Blancs n'a pour défenseurs que des Blancs juges et parties, et dont on pourrait d'abord discuter la compétence, avant d'attaquer leur décision" (page 35). Bon exemplaire. Rares piqûres. Chadenat, 2322. -- Max Bissainthe, 6037. -- Monglond, VII, 987. -- Ryckebusch, 3648. -- Sabin, 28727.

FREYCINET, Louis Claude de Saulces de.
1808. Paris: c.1811. 810 x 550mm. A very fine example of the map regarded as the first to show a full outline of the coastline of Australia, despite there still being several small gaps, including Cook's Labyrinth in New South Wales. Freycinet (1779-1841) sailed around the world on the Baudin Expedition, sent by Napoleonic France to explore the coasts of Australia in 1800. Although they were following in the footsteps of Matthew Flinders (whom they met at Encounter Bay in 1802 and compared their discoveries), Freycinet managed to published his map three years before Flinders, using his own names including 'Terre Napoleon' and 'Golphe Bonaparte'.

Charles Hayes
London, 1808. This rich, original ornithological watercolor is by Charles Hayes. This is an exceptionally rare watercolor with only maybe 5 collections of his watercolors ever recorded. He completed these watercolors in London between 1808 and 1813.Charles Hayes was the son of noted bird illustrator, William Hayes. William Hayes work, "The Portraits of British Birds", listed that it was completed by him and "seven of his pupils." It is now acknowledged that his children and likely his wife, Anne, were responsible for the text, drawing, etching, stippling, and coloring of these plates. Charles Hayes specifically was named as one of William's sons on the title page of that work, and this watercolor was likely part of the production of his father's work. --- Each original watercolor is on thick card paper with an ink ruled border. They were each titled and signed by Charles Hayes, and often dated. The provanance of these watercolors based on the booklabel is William Leatham. This collection was likely intended to be a smaller edition similar to William Lewin's first issue of his "Birds of Great Britain" in original watercolors. --- Overall Very Good to Excellent. Some of the paper has some very light or faint foxing but generally the watercolors are exceptional and this does not detract from the overall appearance. There is a blind stamp at the tipping edge of the paper. Please review the image carefully for condition and contact us with any questions. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

De handel en scheepvaart in de Amsterdamse haven sterk afgenomen. De toegangsroutes waren verzand, er waren oorlogen met Frankrijk met Engeland en ook het embargo van Engelse producten op het Europese vaste land, had tot gevolg dat de ooit zo bloeiende haven bijna kon worden gesloten. Pas met de opening van het door koning Willem I ge?nitieerde Noordhollandsch Kanaal in 1824 nam het scheepvaartverkeer van en naar Amsterdam weer toe en klimt de stad langzaam weer uit het dal.

David-- Jules
ELEGANTE DAMES IN HET BOIS DE BOULOGNE Mode tekening met pen en waterverf op karton door Jules David (1808 - Parijs - 1892). Gesigneerd links onder. Verso gedateerd/beschreven: "1877 / 3?me No d'Avril / No 16"?. Afmetingen: 29,1 x 23,5 cm. Het aquarel stamt uit een serie van modeontwerpen gemaakt door David voor het Parijse modetijdschrift Le Moniteur de la Mode ("Journal du Grand Monde. Modes, Illustrations, Patrons, Litterature, Beaux-Arts,Theatres"?). Hiervan bevinden zich verschillende exemplaren in het Mus?e des Arts D?coratifs (Pavillon de Marsan/Louvre). David was leerling van Duval le Camus en ontving van Le Salon in 1885 een Mention Honorable. Dit werk komt uit de verzameling van Charlotte von Prybram-Gladona. Charlotte, habitu?e van de Beau Monde, werd in 1910 geboren te M?nchen en trouwde op vierentwintigjarige leeftijd met de Weense edelman Albin von Prybram-Gladona. De echtelieden ontmoetten elkaar tijdens de danslessen die Albin, twintig jaar ouder dan Charlotte, nam om fit te blijven (!). Zijn familie onderhield nauwe banden met Einstein, Schweitzer, Rilke en Thomas Mann, terwijl hij Johannes Brahms kende als "?onkel Jo'. Toen Charlotte en Albin vlak voor het uitbreken van de Tweede Wereldoorlog verhuisden naar Parijs, verkochten zij noodgedwongen het leeuwendeel van hun meubelcollectie. Dat stelde hen echter wel in staat zich over te geven aan hun passie voor tekeningen, die beduidend minder plaats innamen. Het echtpaar keerde in 1969 terug naar Oostenrijk en vestigde zich in Salzburg. Albin overleed vijf jaar later, terwijl Charlotte er de hoge leeftijd van … [Click Below for Full Description]

Grégoire, Henri
Paris: Chez Maradan, Libraire, 1808. xiv,287,[1]pp. Half title. Contemporary tree calf, boards with gilt border, spine elegantly gilt in panels, marbled edges and endpapers. A few scuffs to extremities, corners bumped, joints starting to tear but still strong. Light tidelines to lower right corner of first third of textblock (no text affected), light tanning. Very good. First edition of this important and uncommon early history of African-American literature and arts. Abbé Henri Grégoire (1750-1831), former constitutional bishop of Blois in France, was a revolutionary (one of the first clerics to join the Third Estate) as well as a prominent abolitionist, humanist, and teacher of Alexander Dumas. It was on Grégoire's motion in May 1791, that the Constituent Assembly passed its first law admitting some wealthy free men of color in the French colonies to the same rights as whites. The present work, which established Grégoire's reputation, strikes at the hypocrisy of contemporaries such as Thomas Jefferson in their assessments of the talents of African Americans. The author cites examples of gifted black writers and artists, including Benjamin Banneker, Phillis Wheatley, and Francis Williams. Chapters are devoted to the high moral qualities of African Americans, and talents in the trades and arts, especially literature. "This now scarce volume set the standards by which most biographical and historical works on gifted blacks were written during the following decades. Grégoire's book was an important and authoritative contribution to Afro- American historicity" - B … [Click Below for Full Description]

SALMON P. CHASE (1808-1873). Chase was an Ohio Senator and Governor, then became Lincoln's Secretary of the Treasury. In 1864, Lincoln appointed Chase to Chief Justice to succeed Roger Taney and he served until his death. JAY COOKE (1821-1905). Cooke was a banker who helped finance the Civil War. He moved to Philadelphia and was a partner in Clark and Company. He retired in 1857 but founded Jay Cooke and Company in 1861. He served as the Treasury agent for government during the Civil War, and he sold almost $2 billion in bonds to finance the war. After the conflict, he financed very large enterprises, such as the Northern Pacific Railroad. In 1873, the company failed, bringing on the Panic of 1873. ALS. 3pg. 5" x 8". December 17, 1867.

[Women's Social History] Susanna Prouty
Salem, Washington County, New York, 1808. 3 page manuscript on a single folded sheet, with each page measuring 8 x 12". Manuscript bond in a single hand, signed by Hugh Moor of Bethuel Church as witness with the additional signature of Luke Prouty. Remnants of wax seals on two pages; trivial stains and toning. In all, a research-worthy legal document in which a recently widowed woman uses her ready access to cash to secure financial, medical, and residential stability for the remainder of her "Natural Life." In 1808, one year after the death of her husband Richard Prouty, Susanna Prouty enters into a binding legal agreement with her son Luke. "For the use of the said fifteen hundred dollars, the said Luke Prouty shall yearly and every year on the first day of January during the Natural Life of the said Susanna Prouty his mother Deliver to her and Deposit in her custody and for her use the articles enumerated..." In exchange for the immediate supply of $1,500 (accounting for inflation, $30,522 today) Susanna savily secures food, clothing, guaranteed living quarters and shared access to common space in Luke's home, the use of one horse and two cows, "medical aid" in "case of sickness," and $5 annually for the remainder of her life. It is unclear what Richard's profession was, that gave his widow access to such a large sum; it is also a mystery why, with eight surviving children, Susanna chose to enter into the household of her third son. Further research would be needed and could reveal a multitude of answers. What seems likely is that Luke found himself in need of quick … [Click Below for Full Description]
