      1808. S.n. , s.l. août 1808, in-8 (17,5x21,5cm), (40f.) (3f. bl.), en feuilles. - S.n. , s.l. août 1808, in-8 (17,5x21,5cm), (40f.) (3f. bl.), en feuilles. - Completa manoscritto autografo di 12 pagine in-8 6 fogli sotto difficili da decifrare, forse: "Sade o regni di The One" e pubblicato con il titolo "Alcune osservazioni sulla Sade" in Review No. 3-4 del 7 agosto 1946. Manoscritto scrittura molto denso, con molte cancellature, correzioni e aggiunte. "E 'il pensiero di Sade spingendo che Blanchot a compimento, ed è anche quella di Blanchot che compie quello di Sade." (Georges Bataille) La scrittura e l'amicizia di battaglia non sono probabilmente estranei a l'importanza Blanchot dare la sua vita a questa figura paterna della sua riflessione filosofica. Queste poche osservazioni su Sade, tuttavia, sono il primo studio che Blanchot dedicato a questo scrittore che aveva fino a quel momento quasi mai menzionato. In questa prima analisi imparziale e talvolta gravi, Blanchot sottolinea le debolezze della postura letteraria Sade e relativa immoralità in una società post-rivoluzionaria ricco di contraddizioni ideologiche. Tuttavia, sotto l'artificio di espressione estrema, Blanchot rivela una filosofia molto più sconcertante e sovversiva che questi "grandi stravaganza." Con notevole acutezza, ritrae uno spirito unico, tutto sposando alti ideali del suo tempo, ma collocandoli nel filtro della sua singolarità nichilista: "Libertà, a suo avviso, è che il divieto per chiunque di essere qualcosa di diverso da ciò che vuole, è quello di non dire nulla. " La penna di Blanchot, Sadismo non è il godimento più di violenza contro gli altri, ma l'espressione di "la solitudine infinita dell'individuo" in un mondo "in cui i rapporti esseri, le forme generali di vita e alla lingua out è già utilizzato nella distruzione universale. "; "E ora tutte le crudeltà particolari non sono più destinati (...) per portare a Colui prove piacevole della sua esistenza nel mezzo del nulla. " Se, come sottolinea Bataille, un aspetto più innovativo, la lettura di Sade Blanchot rivela una comunità di pensiero è probabilmente attraverso la conclusione di questo primo studio importante che Blanchot solitaria dimostra più chiaramente il suo attaccamento Sade al One: "E adesso veniamo a pensare se le circostanze fossero de Sade un uomo mai ridotto alla miseria di una prigione eterna, si è riuscito a fare sua solitudine immagine prigione universo dove il suo regno solo gloria in eterno onnipotente. La prigione non mente, è il suo lavoro, è la misura del mondo su cui ha più diritti di Dio stesso, perché non solo regna sovrano, ma ha bandito e escluso tutte le creature. Tale è il vantaggio del Distruttore del Creatore. Questo ateo è più Dio che Dio. Fa anche chiamata divina. " [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Manuscrit original complet, entièrement réglé au crayon, et composé 40 feuillets recto-verso. Ce manuscrit, de même que les autres pièces conservées du Marquis, a été dicté à un copiste et corrigé par Sade lui-même. Cahier broché sous couverture verte de l'époque, présentant un petit manque au milieu du dos. Titre à la plume en partie effacé sur le premier plat : 9/ Net et corrigé en août 1808 - bon brouillon.

        Der Nordische Kontrolleur. 1-2.

      - (Stockholm, J. P. Lindh), 1808-09. 8:o. (2),+ 384; (2),+ 385-701 s. Liten fläck s. 55 och s. 495, samt enstaka lagerfläckar, andra titelbladet förstärkt i innerkant, reva s. 671-672. Något nötta samtida marmorerade pappband, gröna titeletiketter. Två volymer. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Setterwall 3340. Uno Willers s. 273ff. Allt som utkom. Del ett med undertiteln: Vom März bis September; del två: Vom September 1808 bis zum Februar 1809. Utgiven månadsvis från mars 1808 till februari 1809 i två delar om sammanlagt 12 häften. Willers uppgift om att något januarinummer 1809 ej kommit ut stämmer inte, då detta nummer finns här. Redaktör för ?Der Nordische Kontrolleur? var Ernst Moritz Arndt. Den trycktes på svenska regeringens bekostnad och innehåller ett stort antal officiella aktstycken, krigsbulletiner och rapporter och anses ha haft till syfte att inför kontinenten försvara och förklara den svenska utrikespolitiken, och då särskilt kriget mot Ryssland. Vid sidan av detta och nyhetsrapportering har Arndt även några längre bidrag på prosa och enstaka dikter. Ett kapitel omhandlar Ryssland i folkpsykologiska vändningar, ?Ein kurzes Wort über Russland? Ett annat större bidrag är avhandlingen ?Briefe an den General Grafen S?, d.v.s. Philipp von Schwerin, där antifranska meningar ges utlopp. Arndt var själv förtegen om sin befattning med tidskriften och även om det så småningom spred sig att han var ansvarig, så var dess hela existens länge tämligen okänd. Gjörwell kände t.ex. så sent som i januari 1809 inte till den och det var först L. F. Rääf som i ett brev till Gjörwell den 17 januari 1809 informerade honom om dess existens. Willers ställer sig tveksam till ovannämnda syfte med tidskriften och anser istället att den varit avsedd som en tyskspråkig statstidning för svenska Pommern och därigenom varit ett led i Gustav IV Adolfs politik, som syftade till att knyta Pommern fastare till svenska kronan (s. 279). Den utgick i en upplaga om 1000 exemplar och exporterades i stor utsträckning till Pommern samt smugglades även till de av fransmännen ockuperade delarna. Efter revolutionen stoppades utgivandet och restupplagan av tidskriften, som kunde anses ha tjänat Gustav IV Adolfs syften, skall ha förseglats och överförts till Kungl. biblioteket, varifrån de dock sedan länge varit försvunna (s. 285). Inte många exemplar lär ha sålts i Sverige, och den är även sällsynt i svenska bibliotek. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      ELEGANTE DAMES IN HET BOIS DE BOULOGNEMode 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 92 bereikte.Prijs: ?985,- (incl. 21% BTW).

        Gezigten in de omstreken van Utrecht, opgedragen aan H.M. de Koningin der Nederlanden. Naar de natuur geteekend en op steen gebragt door P.J. Lutgers met geschiedkundige aanteekeningen van W.J. Hofdijk.[The Hague, J.D. Steuerwald], 1869. Folio. With a lithographed title-page (with a separately tinted lithographed view) and 87 tinted lithographed plates (ca. 16.5 x 22.5 cm), designed and lithographed by P.J. Lutgers. Near contemporary half sheepskin by J.A. Loebèr, Leiden.

      Landwehr, Coloured plates 356; Scheen, p. 732; Thieme & Becker XXIII, p. 480. 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.

        Oeuvres de Louis Racine

      Edition truly comprehensive collective works of the author; a first edition of the works in 4 volumes had appeared from 1742 to 1747 and contained only 4 volumes. Illustrated with a portrait frontispiece of the author, by Gabriel de Saint-Aubin. Full calf blond embossed signed P. Serre. Back smooth lyrical motifs ornate golden. Golden caps on wheels. Triple net coaching on flat lined with golden lace. Inner frieze. Gilt edges. Some corners bumped. Slight friction cap. Copy almost free freckles. Louis Racine, son of playwright Jean Racine became famous by his Christian poems: Religion and Grace. The author has striven to bring to St. Thomas and St. Augustine. His memoirs on the life of Jean Racine are valuable and rich information about the literary life of the time. Louis Racine remains one of the good poets of that time, perfectly representative of mainstream inherited Boileau. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

        Book of Common Prayer, and Administration of the Sacraments....

      , 1808. 1808. (SOUTH CAROLINA). Episcopal Church. The Book of Common Prayer, and Administration of the Sacraments.... [bound with:] The Whole Book of Psalms, in Metre.... Charleston [S.C.]: For W.P. Young, 1808. 12mo. 384, 206, [4], 207-223, [4], 226-245, [2] p. Contemporary black calf (or possibly roan), spine divided into compartments by single gilt fillets, each compartment with a small central gilt rosette, covers enclosed with a single gilt fillet, gilt roll on board edges, page edges gilt, sewn-in headbands, Stormont marbled endpapers. Binding worn, particularly along the hinges, but very sound. Binder's blanks foxed, text lightly so except gathering U which is heavily foxed. Signatures of "Jn. Ball, 4th Decem. 1812, price $3" and Ann W. Simons 1851 [?]. In 1808 New York bookseller David Longworth shared an edition of the Book of Common Prayer with Charleston printer and bookseller William P. Young. The printer of the text has not been identified. Longworth, who favored elegant productions, had several plates engraved for the edition by Benjamin Tanner, and the plates boldly bear Longworth's name: "Published by D. Longworth." The book could be ordered with or, as here, without plates, and in plain or, as here, extra binding. Page [225], second sequence, contains a full-page advertisement for William P. Young's "wholesale and retale [sic] book- store, 41 Broad Street, Charleston." S&S 16006/ 14507 records the NN copy only; OCLC adds three additional copies: MWA, N, and ScU; Griffiths 1808/17 records the NN copy. Early Southern imprints in gilt extra bindings are quite rare.

        The Cruise; a Poetical sketch, in Eight Cantos. By a Naval Officer.

      London: Printed for J. Hatchard, 1808 - Octavo (228 × 132 mm). Uncut in original boards, rebacked to style with replacement paper label. Boards a little rubbed at the extremities, light toning, scattered foxing, a very good copy. First edition of this extremely uncommon poetical account of a two-month "shakedown" cruise with a new ship's company on a British man of war. The work was begun as a pastime during a "regimen on shore recruiting an extremely exhausted constitution". Finding his "Sketches of Scenes which had occurred on Naval Service increasing," the author decided to connect them with a "Regular Detail of Duties," and "Characters to be met with in the Service," in the belief that "a Work might be formed, conveying a correct idea of the Naval Life during so memorable an Epoch as the present." The cruise begins at the latter end of September 1805, and ends with the arrival of the news of the great victory at Trafalgar and the death of Nelson; "the foe is beaten! - nay!- they are no more!! - But Nelson, godlike Nelson!, lies in gore!!! Nelson's the fearful price! - our spirits sink, - e'en while the brimming cup of joy we drink!" In the main the style of this epic poem is far less fraught, prosaic almost, presenting a highly-detailed and graphic narrative of life, above and below decks, onboard a man of war undertaking a typical cruise in home waters and on the enemy coast during the Napoleonic wars. The main text is accompanied by extensive factual and historical notes which are further indexed at the end, the whole comprising an almost encyclopaedic compilation of information on the minutiae of life - duties, hardships and attitudes - manning the "wooden walls" during the Nelsonian period. Despite the wealth of detail, the author remains persistent in his anonymity. Extremely uncommon: only two copies on COPAC (BL and Cambridge); no copies on OCLC or KVK; not in NMM; just one copy at auction in over 40 years. [Attributes: First Edition]
