        [Bouquet of flowers with Cabbage White butterfly]

      [Paris] & London: Danlos ainé and Victor Delarue, [1808]. Stipple engraving, printed in colours, finished by hand, by Alexandre Chaponnier. Expertly re-backed with mulberry paper repairing a three inch tear lower right. 20 x 15 1/2 inches. An extremely rare large scale print after Bessa, a contemporary of Redouté. This `magnificent large ' print (Dunthorne) is from a work called Fleurs et Fruits gravés et coloriés sur les peintures aquarelles faites d'après nature, published in Paris in 1808, with 24 plates after Bessa. However, the book is so rare that even in 1938 Gordon Dunthorne had only been able to find five of the plates. The present print is of a red and white tulip, a blue hyacinth and two stems of multi-headed narcissus, with a Cabbage White butterfly settled on one of the broad leaves of the tulip. Here Bessa and Chaponnier have combined to produce a plate that is a match for any printed image from Redouté, and in terms of scale larger than anything he produced. Cf. Dunthorne 31

        TALES OF TERROR WITH AN INTRODUCTORY DIALOGUE

      London: Printed for R. Faulder, J. Walker, Scatcherd and Letterman et al , 1808. pp. [4] 155 [1]; hand-coloured folded frontispiece plate, 2 further folding hand-coloured plates, additioanl engraved title page with hand-coloured vignette (with imprint: "Printed for I. Bell by Bulmer & Co.". Contemporary half calf binding with marbled paper boards, very good with light wear only. Contents clean and tight, no inscriptions, a couple of short marginal tears/nicks to frontispiece and first plate, but not nearly affecting printed image, now professionally and inconspicuously repaired with Japanese tissue. A very good copy. Fabulous hand-coloured engravings. Referenced by; Gothic Writers: p. 400; Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural: pp. 264-266; Summers: A Gothic bibliography, pp. 525-27. etc. "Tales of Terror" was originally published in 1801 without The Abbot of Leiston, apparently as a parody of M. G. Lewis's Tales of Wonder. The book is often attributed to Lewis, but see Montague Summers, Gothic Bibliography, pp 525-27, "the book is gruesome and in its illustrations even disgusting and it seems impossible that Lewis could have had anything to do with it".. Second Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good. 8vo.

        Essai sur une Méthode qui a pour objet de bien régler l'Emploi du Tems, premier moyen d'être heureux; A l'usage des jeunes gens de l'age de 16 à 25 ans; Extrait d'un Travail général, plus étendu, sur l'Education. Par M. A. J.

      A Paris, chez Firmin Didot, 1808. - in-8. 1f. 206pp. (1f.blanc). Demi-veau, dos lisse orné (Reliure de l'époque). Edition Originale. Ancien révolutionnaire devenu pédagogue réformateur, Marc-Antoine Jullien (1775-1848) fut un précurseur méconnu dans le domaine des doctrines éducatives. Fondateur de l'éducation comparée et vulgarisateur de Pestalozzi en France, ses travaux visaient à constituer une "science de l'éducation" qu'il fut le premier, en France, à concevoir sur le mode des sciences dites "positives". "L'?uvre de Marc Antoine Jullien fourmille de tant d'exemples d'intuitions originales qu'il n'est pas étonnant qu'elle ait frappé ses rares lecteurs par le caractère prophétique de quelques morceaux choisis. Mais son auteur est un curieux avatar de la figure du "précurseur". Lorsqu'en 1883 un cours de Science de l'Education fut institutionnalisé à la Sorbonne, personne, apparemment, ne se rappelait qu'il fut le premier, en France, à avoir tenté d'élaborer une 'science de l'éducation'. Pourtant, au gré de circonstances proclamatoires ou célébratoires, certains pédagogues de la IIIe République firent mention de son oeuvre, par bribes. Ainsi, F.Buisson, lors de l?inauguration de l?Institut Normal Pédagogique à Paris, en 1878 ; ou encore dans la leçon d?ouverture de son cours de Science de l?éducation, à la Sorbonne en 1896 : il cita alors 'un pédagogue français bien oublié', pour n?en retenir que cette affirmation : 'aimer les hommes est la première condition pour les former'." (Gautherin). Le présent ouvrage, conçu pour former la seconde partie d'un 'Essai général d'éducation' de l'auteur, fut réimprimé à de nombreuses reprises tout au long du 19e siècle et jusqu'à nos jours (la dernière édition parut en 2006 chez Anthropos). Il préconisait notamment la tenue par les jeunes élèves de "journaux pédagogiques" permettant de recueillir des données quotidiennes sur leurs progrès. Bel exemplaire très frais. cf. Jacquelne Gautherin, "Marc-Antoine Jullien de Paris (1775-1848)", in: Perspectives : revue trimestrielle d?éducation comparée (Paris, UNESCO), vol. XXIII, n° 3-4, (1993), pp.783-798.

        Ansicht von Sidney von der S¸dseite, und der M¸ndung des Parramatta Flusses

      probably Weimar,: circa, 1808.. Single sheet, 340 x 222 mm., laid paper, featuring an engraved view of Sydney Cove, slight browning, very good. A good view of Sydney Cove closely based on the original engraving in the official publication of the Baudin voyage. It was engraved for the German edition of the Baudin account, with the original French caption slightly enhanced to read "View of Sydney from the south-side with the mouth of the Parramatta River". The French encampment is in the foreground of the picture, and several of the sailors can be seen working on repairs to their ships. To the left a small group of aborigines is testament to the close quarters in which the French bivouacked, and a reminder of why Nicolas-Martin Petit was able to create his famous suite of portraits of Port Jackson aborigines.This is quite a rare image; there is a copy in the Nan Kivell collection of the National Library of Australia. The German edition of the Baudin voyage was first published as Entdeckungsreise nach Australien (Weimar, 1808-1819).Bonnemains, Forsyth & Smith, 16063.2 (original French engraving); First Views of Australia, 65 (original French engraving).

        The Lay of the Last Minstrel: A Poem. With Ballads and Lyrical Pieces

      London - Longman, Hurst, Rees and Orme, 1808 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A large and handsome copy of Walter Scott's long narrative historical poem. Eighth Edition. With Ballads and Lyrical Pieces, Songs, and Ballads from the Minstrelsy of the Scottish Border. 168 pages of copious notes to the rear. Armorial bookplate of Sir William Duff Gordon to front pastedown. Sir William Duff-Gordon, 2nd Baronet (8 April 1772 8 March 1823), known as William Gordon until 1815, was a Scottish politician. Crested bookplate of Margaret Scrimgeour to rear pastedown. Scott's intention was to depict'the customs and manners which anciently prevailed on the Borders of England and Scotland. . . the inhabitants living in a state partly pastoral and partly warlike, and combining habits of constant depredation with the influence of a rude spririt of chivalry'. The Lay was an immediate publishing phenomenon, bringing Scott instant fame. There were six editions within three years, with sales rising to 27,000 copies within a decade, unparalleled figures for poetry. In the first instance of Scott's impact upon tourism in Scotland, the description of the moonlit Melrose Abbey (Canto II, stanza 1) brought a stream of sightseers to the ruined Abbey and led to it becoming a popular subject with nineteenth-century painters. The poem's fans included even the Prime Minister, William Pitt, who recited passages from the poem at his dinner table. (walterscottlib)Condition: Rebacked in calf with original spine and boards. Externally very attractive, despite some rubbing to the older leather. The hinges have been reinforced, however, the rear is slightly strained a few pages in. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are intermittently bright and browned, but generally clean, just the odd spot. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED.

        Painting from an Etruscan vase [Pl. XLIII]

      [Paris: P.Didot l'Ainé for Dubois Maisonneuve, 1808-1810]. Hand-coloured line engraving by A. Clener, on wove paper. Very good condition apart from some water stains in the top corners. 12 3/4 x 30 inches. 22 3/8 x 31 1/2 inches. A spectacularly beautiful image from a source work for the style which became known as the neo-classical revival or federal style. This plate is from an extremely scarce work titled Peintures de Vases antiques... appelés Etrusques. Using the great collections of antiquities at Malamaison, the Musée Napoleon, the Bibliothèque impériale, and the Sèvres porcelain manufactury as his source, the publisher, Dubois Maisonneuve, stated that his intention was to provide a series of plates of the highest quality illustrating the breath-taking scenes depicted by the unknown masters who decorated the Etruscan vases of antiquity. The plates were also intended as exemplars for contemporary artists, with the publisher noting that the images offered a wonderful source of inspiration: a sentiment that is still true today. Cf. Brunet II, 848; cf. Blackmer 1129
