      Paris : De l'imprimerie imperiale, 1808-01-01. Hardcover. Good. Contemporary smooth calf. Recased, with original spine inlaid. Good binding and cover. Bar Association of New York stamp on title. 432 + 120 pp. (Bound with the Table) Includes tipped in letter dated 1888 and 1906 (Harrington Putnam and other signatures). Putnam (1851-1937) served on the Supreme Court of New York. Gift inscription. Early edition of the Napoleonic Cope. "Napoleon in later life considered the Civil Code to be the most significant of his achievements. The Code represented a comprehensive reformation and codification of the French civil laws. Under the ancien regime more than 400 codes of laws were in place in various parts of France, with common law predominating in the north and Roman law in the south. The Revolution overturned many of these laws. In addition, the revolutionary governments had enacted more than 14,000 pieces of legislation. Five attempts were made to codify the new laws of France during the periods of the National Convention and the Directory. Through the efforts of Napoleon the drafting the new Civil Code in an expert commission, in which Jean-Etienne-Marie Portalis took a leading role, took place in the second half of 1801. Napoleon attended in person 36 of the commission's 87 meetings. Although the draft was completed at the end of 1801, the Code was not published until 21 March 1804. The Civil Code represents a typically Napoleonic mix of liberalism and conservatism, although most of the basic revolutionary gains - equality before the law, freedom of religion and the abolition of feudalism - were consolidated within its laws. Property rights, including the rights of the purchasers of the biens nationaux were made absolute. The Code also reinforced patriarchal power by making the husband the ruler of the household. The Napoleonic Code was to be promulgated, with modifications, throughout the Empire. The Civil Code was followed by a Code of Civil Procedure in 1806, a Commercial Code in 1807, a Criminal Code and Code of Criminal Procedure in 1808. The Civil Code has served as the model for the codes of law of more than twenty nations throughout the world." Burnham, Robert. The Napoleonic Code; The Napoleon Series. 2012.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Lübeck, 7. XII. 1808. - 2 SS. auf Doppelblatt mit eh. Adresse am Gegenblatt verso (Faltbrief). 4to. An den Essener Verleger Gottschalk Diedrich Baedeker (1778-1841): "Hier, wo ich, seit einigen Jahren, mein Haupt-Quartier aufgeschlagen, aber immer nur, wie ein herumziehender Beduin, unter einem Zelte, traf mich in diesen Tagen ihr gütiger, schon vom vorig. Sept. dat. Brief, mit den kostbaren, ihn begleitenden, Geschenken. Empfangen Sie für diese Sendung, noch mehr für die herzliche, mir so willkommene Meynung, die sie veranlaßt hat, meinen innigen Dank. - Es sollte mir äußerst schmeichelhaft seyn, wenn ich glauben könnte, daß ich einen Theil dieses Dankes dem würdigen Hn. Prof. [Friedrich Adolf] Krummacher auch schuldig wäre; und daß Er, wenigstens auf eine entfernte Weise, in Ihre gütige Gesinnung eingewilligt hätte? Sey es wie es wolle, so ersuche ich Sie, bey der ersten Gelegenheit ihn von meiner Verehrung zu versichern. Sein trefflicher Gesang hat mich tief ergriffen. Sie haben wohl Recht, es ist reine Deutschheit! - Soll noch einmal die kleine Pièce, wovon Sie erwähnen, gedruckt werden, so wird dieser schöne Hymnus nicht vergessen. Die, durch hohe Einfalt, paradiesische Reinheit, Kraft und Anmuth ausgezeichnete Parabeln, kannte ich längst; und habe sie, vor einem halben Jahre, einem geschickten Manne in Paris zum Übersetzen vorgeschlagen, der mich drum gefragt hatte, 'was er aus dem Deutschen ins Fr. wohl übertragen könnte?' Seitdem aber, habe ich von dem Manne keine Nachricht. Aber wahrlich, leicht ist es nicht eine Feder zu finden, die die ganze Zartheit, Correctheit und Feinheit des Colorits in den Krumm.'schen Parab., wiedergeben könnte. Dazu gehörte ein Florian, oder Bernardin de St. Pierre! - Ich würde es nicht wagen. Doch ein Paar will ich mir wählen, und mit Fleiß bearbeiten, zu einer Sammlung kl. ästhet. Aufsätze, sämmtlich aus dem D. übers., die ich einst herauszugeben gedenke. Sonst kenne ich Niemanden, der Ihrem Wunsche entsprechen könnte - niemanden, der mir Hülfe leisten könnte in meinem schwierigen Unternehmen, die germanische Cultur in Gallien erst bekannt zu machen, und dann, wo möglich, geltend zu machen! - Noch in diesem Winter, hoffe ich Ihnen ein geringes Andenken schicken zu können. Ich bitte Sie es freundschaftlich anzunehmen, als ein Zeichen der Verehrung und Erkenntlichkeit Ihres / Ergebensten / Villers. / - Den Winter 1804-5 habe ich in Mülheim an der Roor [!] zugebracht, wo ich den luth. Hofprediger Hn. De Groote kennen lernte. Lebt noch der wackere Mann, der damals vielen Haus-Leiden ausgesetzt wurde - und haben Sie Gelegenheit dazu, so bitte ich Sie ihn von mir grüßen zu lassen. Ich habe mich schon so viel bemüht, um seine: 'Philosoph. Stücke üb. die Ehe', 1788 in Essen herausgek., und kann das Werkchen nicht bekommen. Ich würde es mit Dank annehmen wenn Sie es, auf Rechnung unsers hies. Buchh.dlers Hn. Niemann, mir verschaffen könnten." - Faltspuren; kl. Ausschnitt von Siegelöffnung (kein Textverlust); leicht angestaubt. Geschrieben während der französischen Besetzung Lübecks, wo sich de Villers 1806 gegen die Ausschreitungen der Armee seines Geburtslands eingesetzt hatte. 1811 wurde der begeisterte Kantianer Professor in Göttingen, wo er bereits studiert hatte.

        Histoire Naturelle des Oiseaux d'Afrique.

      Paris: J.J.Fuchs [volumes I-III], Delachaussee [volumes 4-6], 1799-1808. - 6 volumes. 4to., (12 6/8 x 9 6/8 inches). Half-titles (some minor foxing, volume V with light water-stain to inner lower corner throughout). 300 fine engraved plates, printed in colour and finished by hand, including 4 double-page (a few with imprints/captions trimmed, one slightly creased, a few short tears). Fine 20th-century red half crushed morocco, gilt by Sangorski and Sutcliffe, top edges gilt. Bound from the original 51 parts which were published from 1796 until Levaillant's death in 1824 with the manuscript and accompanying 52 original drawings by Reinold for the seventh volume and 115 further original drawings for subsequent volumes unpublished. "It gives a comprehensive account of the birds of South Africa , based on Levaillant's personal experiences and the collections he made during his journeys in that region. The style of the text is lively, and it gives descriptions not only of the names of the birds, but also of their habits and habitats" (Anker). "Levaillant was until exceeded by Gould (and until now only by him) the producer of the most comprehensive series of works on exotic birds." (Fine bird books p. 118). The son of the French consul in Dutch Guiana , Levaillant was born in Paramarimbo and seems to have inherited his father's love of travel. He became one of the first of a new breed of naturalists who attained prominence towards the end of the 18th century, studying and recording their subjects in their natural habitat. Anker 297.

        Veduta degli avanzi dell’antica fortezza di S. Martino in Toscana.

      - Firenze, 1808. Incisione in rame all’acquatinta, cm 42,5 x 54 (alla lastra), 55 x 76,5 (il foglio). Disegnata e incisa da Angiolo Angiolini, con dedica al Sig.re Ferdinando Malevolti del Benino. Bella veduta di classico paesaggio toscano, con paesi e costruzioni sulle colline, filari di cipressi e figure di viandanti e contadini in primo piano. La fortezza medicea di San Martino si trova nel comune di San Piero a Sieve. Essa è racchiusa in un perimetro poligonale, comprensivo di terrapieni e sette baluardi; occupa un intero colle e si affaccia su un’altura che scende sulla Sieve, dominando l’abitato di San Piero e gran parte del Mugello. La sua costruzione fu fortemente voluta da Cosimo I de’ Medici per porre un baluardo a difesa dei possedimenti della famiglia e dello stato fiorentino, oltre che per soddisfare le pressanti richieste delle popolazioni locali, stanche dei continui saccheggi perpetuate ai loro danni da eserciti e bande provenienti dal nord. Dalla biografia ufficiale di Cosimo si legge la motivazione ufficiale " perchè da quella parte si poteva da qualunque havesse voluto assalir lo stato fiorentino venir liberamente insino a Firenze con ogni moltitudine di gente quantunque grande, senza avvenirsi ad alcuna frontiera da poterli contrastare ". Essa prese il nome dalla vecchia chiesa parrocchiale di San Martino a Beriano. Al suo interno si trova una cappella e il mastio con le abitazioni per le truppe del Granduca di Toscana. Essendo il suo scopo quello di difendere Firenze, esso era dotato di sistemi efficaci per resistere agli assedi, come cisterne, magazzini per viveri ed armi, casematte, cucine mulini a vento, armerie e forni per fondere cannoni. Il monte su cui sorgeva era addirittura attraversato da un passaggio segreto che conduceva al fiume, per poter portare i cavalli ad abbeverarsi. Al suo interno, nella parte più elevata, c'è un’ altra costruzione, fortificata da cinque baluardi e vi si trovava una campana che serviva da segnale. La progettazione della nuova fortezza fu affidata all’architetto Baldassarre Lanci, già responsabile delle fortificazioni di Grosseto, Siena e Radicofani, e la prima pietra fu posta il 30 giugno 1569; due anni dopo il Lanci moriva e l’impresa fu continuata da Bernardo Buontalenti; i lavori andarono per le lunghe, vista anche la vastità dell’opera, che fu terminata solo nel 1608, sotto il regno di Ferdinando I. Nel 1774 questa fortezza fu chiusa da Leopoldo I di Lorena che la giudicò inutile, fu destinata ad abitazione privata e, in seguito, abbandonata. Quasi ridotta a rudere e dimenticata, oggi è stata riscoperta ed è sotto restauro. Non comune. Minimo foxing marginale e due lievissimi aloni di umido nel margine bianco superiore, peraltro esemplare bello e decorativo.

        Autograph letter signed "H. Berlioz," in all likelihood to the French composer and music theorist Antoine Elwart

      "[Berlioz] stands as the leading musician of his age in a country—France—whose principal artistic endeavour was then literary, and in an art—music—whose principal pioneers were then German. In many senses the Romantic movement found its fullest embodiment in him, yet he had deep Classical roots and stood apart from many manifestations of that movement. His life presents the archetypal tragic struggle of new ideas for acceptance, to which he gave his full exertions as composer, critic and conductor. And though there were many who perceived greatness in his music from the beginning, his genius only came to full recognition in the 20th century." Hugh Macdonald in Grove Music Online. Elwart's (1808-1877) "compositions include operas, masses and many other sacred works, oratorios, songs and instrumental music, but he is better known for his writings. His numerous theoretical treatises were widely used and, though lacking originality, reveal careful thought." M.C. Carr in Grove Music Online.. 1 page. Octavo (ca. 186 x 125 mm). Dated "Wednesday evening." In black ink on dark ivory paper. In French (with translation). With original autograph envelope, ca. 106 x 135 mm., with Elwart's Paris address in black ink. Berlioz asks "My Dear Elwart" to send him "the membership list of our quoits club [société du disque], together with the address of each member" as soon as possible. He will send Elwart tickets for his "next important concert." Somewhat browned; creased at folds; remnants of former mount to upper margin of blank verso; envelope worn, soiled, and creased.

      Dessau und Leipzig, bey Georg Voß, 1808. 3 Bde. 8vo. VIII, 2 Bll., 188; 2 Bll., (189-) 624, XX S., 2 Bll.; XXXVI, 1 Bl., 342 S. Zeitgenössische braune Halblederbände mit Buntpapierbezug und Lederecken. (Papier leicht stockfleckig). Seine Übersetzung zum \"bürgerlichen Gesetzbuch Napoleons I.\", so Erhard im Vorwort, erscheint später als angekündigt, weil er den bislang fünf erschienenen Übersetzungen nicht einfach eine sechste anreihen wollte. Dies wäre jedoch schon deshalb nicht geschehen, weil er eine Reihe von Übersetzungsfehlern bei seinen Vorgängern entdeckt habe. Bei schwierigen Stellen habe er deshalb Anmerkungen hinzugefügt. Daneben fügte Erhard Parallelstellen aus dem Handelsgesetzbuch und der Gerichtsordnung hinzu. Besonders wichtig ist die Hinzufügung der Vergleichung des Napoleonischen Gesetzbuches mit dem Römischen Rechte und den älteren Französischen Gewohnheitsrechten und Gesetzen, die der französische Jurist Dard angefertigt hat. Die Anmerkungen von Dard hat nicht Erhard, sondern ein gewisser Demuth übersetzt. Die zweite Ausgabe erschien im Jahre 1811, mit einem ergänzenden Supplementsband. - Erhard (1759-1813) studierte ab 1778 an der Universität Leipzig und promovierte 1782 zum Doktor der Rechte. Anschließend wurde er zum Oberhofgerichts-Advokaten ernannt und nahm 1783 eine Stelle als Beisitzer im Niederlausitzer Landgericht an. Im Jahre 1787 wurde er zum Extraordinarius und schließlich 1793 zum Ordinarius für Rechte an der Universität Leipzig ernannt. Seine juristischen Publikationen bezogen sich vor allem auf das sächsische und preußische Recht, herausragend etwa der von Carmer angeregte \"Versuch einer Kritik des allgemeinen Gesetzbuchs für die preußischen Staaten\" (1792).
