        Voyage de Dentrecasteaux, envoyé à la Recherche de La Pérouse. Publié par ordre de sa Majesté l'Empereur et Roi. Rédigé par M. de Rossel, ancienne capitaine de vaisseau

      de l'Imprimerie Imperiale, [1807]-, Paris 1808 - Total of four volumes, comprising: two volumes, quarto, with the 32 folding engraved plates normally found in the first text volume here bound as a third volume (with a reprise of the first volume title-page), and Atlas, imperial folio, containing 39 charts and maps (29 double folding); contemporary French quarter calf and marbled boards, the smaller atlas volume in a later binding to match; the large Atlas in its first binding of half blue calf but preserved in a well-made folding half calf case that matches the text volumes; a very good set in an unusual and quite successful format. Official publication of the d'Entrecasteaux expedition. A handsome and slightly unusual set of this famous voyage account, bound with two atlas volumes. The usual large atlas of charts is accompanied by a smaller volume, the same size as the text, containing the 32 plates which are usually seen bound into the text volumes where they illustrate the appendix by Beautemps-Beaupré on charting the Santa Cruz archipelago.This is the official commander's account of the search for La Pérouse, published posthumously eight years after Labillardière's narrative of the same expedition. The twelve magnificent maps of Western Australia and Tasmania in the Atlas record much of these coasts accurately for the first time and are among the most significant ever made. Of prime importance to Tasmania, it was D'Entrecasteaux's explorations of 1792 and 1793 which focused attention on the Derwent River area (now Hobart) as a suitable place for settlement.This is an excellent copy of a very scarce voyage account, of great relevance to Australia and the Pacific; the Atlas volume is in its correct first edition form, with the charts all present in their original issues. Copies are sometimes found with later issues. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Paintings of Ancient Vases commonly called Etruscan. Derived from different collections and engraved by A. CLENER. With explanations by A. L. Millin. "Peintures de Vases Antiques vulgairement appleles Etrusques. Tirees de differentes collections et gravees par A. Clener. Accompagnees d'explications par A.L. Millin

      Illustrated Books: A Paris Publiees par M. Dubois-Masionneuve; de l'Imprimerie de P. Didot l'Aine. 1808-1810. 2 vols., imperial folio (58 x 44 cms). First edition, large paper copy. pp. [vi], xx, 124; [ii], 146 + 2 engraved titles and 144 (of 150, 8 uncoloured, approx. 10 folding) plates with magnificent original hand-colouring, 2 uncoloured repeated plates (plates 3 and 4, vol. II, both folding). Lacks plates 13-18 of volume II, which were never bound in. With half titles and dedication to the Queen-Empress (Josephine, divorced by Napoleon in mid-publication), and 3 headpieces. Contemporary half calf. Vinet calls this a remarkable work, with beautiful plates and a learned introduction by Millin. Dubois-Maisoneuve consciously intended to rival the most luxurious publications to date and to bring to light vases from previously unpublished collections which he had found in Paris. He also included vases from the Malmaison Collection, the Musee Napoleon, the Sevres Manufactury and the Gallitzin Collection. This is an example with sumptuous contemporary colour. Vinet notes that when first published the work cost 375 francs black and white, but 1125 francs when coloured. A glance at the handful of black and white plates in this set, especially the duplicates in the second volume, reveals why. It is a scarce work and even the Blackmer copy was black and white. Light waterstaining at the foot of the volumes throughout, almost entirely marginal and, fortunately, affecting the text leaves rather than the plates (different paper stock). Dampstaining to foot of boards, with old repair to marbled paper on rear board of vol.1 and front board of vol. 2; lower rear joint of Vol 2 slightly cracked; slight worm damage to label of vol. 2. "Relatively little is known about Monsieur Dubois Maisonneuve, who described himself as a member of several literary societies. He is thought to be Charles Maurice Dubois-Maisonneuve (sometimes found as just Charles Maurice Dubois), the author of other works as diverse as a practical guide to travel in the Napoleonic Empire ?" the Nouveau voyage de France avec 24 itinéraires pour les différentes parties de l'Empire... (Paris: 1809), and, under the pseudonym C.M.D.M., Les voyages de Jésus-Christ: ou description géographique des principaux lieux et monuments de la terre-sainte... (Paris: 1831), a work that proved popular enough to be translated into both Italian (1832) and German (1836). He was still living in December 1837, when, described as a man of letters and editor, a case was brought before the Cour Royal of Paris to settle a dispute with an artist with whom he had formed a society in 1836 to publish more engravings of "Etruscan" vases Inspired in particular by the published catalogues of Sir William Hamilton's vase collection, Dubois-Maisonneuve produced at least two works that described and illustrated many black- and red-figure vases held primarily in French collections. He included examples from both the royal holdings at Malmaison and the Musée Napoleon, as well as those owned by private collectors, such as Hamilton, the comte de Pourtalès-Gorgier, and lesser known connoisseurs, including one vase owned by Dubois-Maisonneuve himself. The title of both publications acknowledged the archaeological controversy about the origins of these painted ceramics, many of which had originally been unearthed in Italian graves and given an Etruscan rather than Greek attribution. Dubois-Maisonneuve's first publication on this topic, Peintures des vases vulgairement appelés étrusques tirées de différentes collections... (1808-1810), in two volumes, was dedicated to the Empress Josephine.. The commentary, by the renowned scholar Aubin-Louis Millin de Grandmaison (1759-1818), naturalist, antiquary, and curator of medals at the Imperial library, included a discussion of the history of the connoisseurship and scholarship of these vases (including a section on fakes), and alluded to the interest of the French government in the publication of collections of antique vases to serve as an inspiration for contemporary manufacturers. Items from the collection of the Sèvres royal porcelain manufactory were featured among those illustrated in the volumes. The drawings for the plates were executed by Ange Clener, who was responsible for the plates in the second volume of Hamilton's collection. " Nicola Shilliam Two Early French Publications of "Etruscan" Vases; Marquand Library of Art and Archeology, Princeton University. Aubin-Louis Millin de Grandmaison (1759 1818 ) was an antiquary and naturalist erudite in various domains, who followed Jean-Jacques Barthélemy as curator of the Cabinet des Médailles et Antiques of the former French royal library and took an interest in medieval art, which was just beginning to attract serious attention, as well as classical culture. During the French Revolution he was imprisoned in 1793 as a result of his campaigns against Jacobins in the Chronique de Paris, which he edited. At the end of a year's term, he was freed following the Thermidorian Reaction, to teach archeology at the nationalised royal library, reestablished as the Bibliothèque Nationale; there he also served as conservateur-professeur in the department of antiquities and in 1799-1800 as president of the Conservatoire de la Bibliothèque Nationale de France. He was known for the many articles he published on Greek vases. In 1806, appeared his Dictionnaire des Beaux-Arts. From 1807 to 1811, appeared the four volumes of his Voyage dans les départemens du Midi de la France, accompanied by an atlas. In 1811 he travelled in Italy and Sicily, and afterwards published designs of the mosaic paving in the cathedrals of Apulia. Millin de Grandmaison was the director of the Magasin Encyclopédique and participated in other scientific reviews and belonged to numerous scientific societies. He translated numerous accounts of voyages, edited two dissertations of Carl von Linné for the Société Philomathique de Paris and one by Johan Christian Fabricius (1745?"1808). He carried on an important correspondence with the German archaeologist Karl August Böttiger.[ In 1817, he was a founder of the Annales Encyclopédiques. Brunet II, 848; Vinet 1534.; cf.

        Porträt des Generals Friedrich Freiherr von Zandt

      um 1808 um 1808. Bleistift und Aquarellproben auf Papier, oben mittig mit Bleistift betitelt: "general Zant", 29,3 x 20,3 cm. Provenienz: Aus dem Nachlass des Künstlers.. Professionell unter säurefreiem Museumspassepartout montiert.. Wilhelm von Kobell, aus einer bedeutenden deutschen Künstlerfamilien des ausgehenden 18. und frühen 19. Jahrhunderts stammend, ist heute in erster Linie für seine feinfühligen Aufnahmen der oberbayerischen Voralpenlandschaft bekannt, die er durch genreartige Personenstaffagen belebte und zu sogenannten "Begegnungsbildern" werden ließ. Stilistisch zwischen einem reduzierten Klassizismus und der süddeutsch-österreichischen Biedermeier-Malerei stehend, gehören diese feinmalerischen, meist kleinformatigen Gemälde zu den besonderen Pretiosen der deutschen Kunst des 19. Jahrhunderts. Zu seinen Lebzeiten wurde Kobell jedoch in erster Linie mit einem Zyklus großformatiger Schlachtenbilder berühmt. Zwischen 1807 und 1814 schuf er für Kronprinz Ludwig von Bayern, seit 1825 König Ludwig I., eine Folge von zwölf Gemälden im Monumentalformat von jeweils ca. zwei mal drei Metern, die wichtige Schlachten und Kampfhandlungen der bayerischen Truppen jener kriegerischen Jahre darstellen: Es handelt sich hierbei sowohl um Schlachten, welche die Bayern als Verbündete auf Seiten Napoleons präsentieren, als auch um Ereignisse aus den Befreiungskriegen, die nach dem Bündniswechsel der Bayern 1813 ins Lager der Frankreich-Gegner stattfanden. In breit angelegten, stimmungsvollen Landschaftspanoramen werden tatsächliche Kampfhandlungen ebenso thematisiert, wie Belagerungssituationen oder größere Truppenbewegungen im Feld. Die Gemälde des Kobellschen Zyklus' beeindrucken den Betrachter nicht zuletzt durch die enorme Vielzahl kleinformatig dargestellter Personen, welche über die tiefen Plateaus und Ebenen der Landschaft und unter einem weit heruntergezogenen Horizont verteilt sind und einen massiven dokumentarischen Anspruch vermitteln. Mehrfach wird der Vordergrund von einem - noch von der flämischen und französischen Schlachtenmalerei des Barock geprägten - sogenannten Feldherrenhügel eingenommen: Hier präsentiert der Künstler den Generalstab, als die Hauptprotagonisten des Geschehens. Während die unübersichtliche Vielzahl der, teils miniaturhaft klein dargestellten Soldaten und Offiziere im Bildmittel- und Hintergrund, rein schematisierte oder kaum ausgearbeitete Gesichtszüge trägt, sind einzelne Personen im Bildvordergrund häufig in überzeugender Porträtähnlichkeit lebensnah erfasst. Zu diesem Zweck fertigte Kobell zahlreiche vorbereitende Zeichnungen an: Zum Teil war er im Feld dabei, zeichnete die Kampfhandlung vor Ort, porträtierte die wichtigsten Protagonisten und skizzierte Pferde, Uniform- und Waffendetails, zum Teil reiste er aber auch erst später an die Orte der Schlachten, um die Landschaft zu zeichnen oder behalf sich mit Kartenmaterial, Schilderungen und Skizzen beteiligter Offiziere. Im Zusammenhang der vorbereitenden Arbeiten für seinen umfangreichen Schlachtenzyklus schuf Wilhelm von Kobell auch die vorliegende Bleistift-Porträtstudie des Generals von Zandt, die zur Zeit jedoch keinem der erhaltenen Gemälde definitiv zugeordnet werden kann. Friedrich Freiherr von Zandt war Oberst und Kommandeur einer Kavalleriebrigade sowie Stellvertreter des Brigadegenearls Lefebvre bei Kosel.

        An Account of the Rise, Progress, and Present State of the Society for the Discharge and Relief of Persons Imprisoned for Small Debts

      London, 1808. First Edition. Contemp. tree calf; rebacked. A very good copy. 8vo., There is a frontis. and large fldg. plan of the woman's workhouse. Neild's work with prison reform began in the 1760s. He was responsible for agitating for reform and founding the Society. The book offered here contains a reprint of the account of how the Society was founded and grew but it offers for the first time Neild's lengthy and exquisitely detailed reports on the condition of prisoners and prison/workhouse facilities in general throughout the United Kingdom. Neild appears to have been indefatigable in his inspections; his biographer notes that jailers and wardens were spurred to a, '... keener sense of their responsibilities ...' by Neild. Though the 1808 printing offered here bears the notice 3rd edition it is erroneous. This is the first edition of Neild's complete report of his tour containing an additional 400 pp. of text. There is an additonal portrait of Lettsom, Neild's close friend, added to this copy that is not properly part of the collation. See DNB XIV, pp. 169-170.
