Grassi, Joseph, painter; Mozart's portraitist (1757-1838).
Small 8vo. 51 unnumbered ff. Original red morocco. Green moirée silk endpapers; all edges gilt. Signed by Grassi on front flyleaf. The personal travel notebook of Joseph Grassi, one of the foremost portraitists of his age and remembered today as the painter of one of the very few authentic Mozart portraits. In her biographical sketch of the artist, Elisabeth Eixner deplores the lack of studies concerning Grassi's Roman years: "It would be a rewarding task for scholarship to investigate Grassi's activities in Rome, which he first visited in 1808-10 (becoming member of the Academy of San Luca in 1810), and again in 1816-21 as 'Director of Studies of Saxon Artists in Italy'" (NDB VII, 5). Clearly, the present notebook constitutes the principal and hitherto entirely undocumented source for such an investigation: apparently begun during his first journey to Italy, the booklet also served Grassi upon his return, containing his travel plans as well as lists of important events, meetings, addresses, and contacts in Rome. The detailed schedule of his itinerary from Gotha to Rome (no less than 60 stations, stating the distances and length of stay) is followed by a five-page catalogue of artists active in Rome, most of which Grassi managed to visit, a brief account of social life in the city, and a list of various works of art and their locations. The names of numerous art dealers and antiquarians as well as several paintings offered to Grassi (including works by van Dyck, Raffael, Michelangelo, and Rubens) give evidence of his activity as an agent for the Ducal collections.

Pike, Zebulon]
Washington: A. & G. Way, 1808. 3,[1]pp. Dbd. Minor age-toning and dampstaining. Very good. A report made on March 9, 1808 regarding if and how to compensate Zebulon Pike for his explorations of the Mississippi River (see Howes P372). The document prints a letter of praise from Henry Dearborn to Pike congratulating Pike on his endeavors, and includes the curious mention of one Joseph Ballenger. Ballenger was a sometime companion of Pike who left the expedition to pursue a "Spanish project," but the committee purposefully omits who hired Ballenger and what his task was. Given that Gen. Wilkinson had written Pike's instructions himself, and given Wilkinson's association with Aaron Burr's own Spanish project, Ballenger's errand into the wilderness is doubly suspect. An attractive Pike item, and quite rare. GOODSPEED 417-432. BRAISLIN 1472. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 16557.

MARULLI VINCENZO (1768-1808).
Firenze, presso Molini, Landi e Comp., 1808. In - 4ø piccolo; 2 cc., 8, 150 pp., 3 tavv. f.t.; eleganti grandi vignette incise in rame al titolo e al principio di ogni capitolo raffiguranti esempi architettonici. Legatura coeva in mezzo marocchino verde, titolo in oro al dorso. Ex libris ottocentesco stampigliato sulla prima carta (stemma nobiliare coronato), altro ex libris a stampa al contropiatto anteriore (Lorenzo Urbani). Prima edizione del primo libro che affronta in Italia, in senso moderno ed in maniera organica, il tema della progettazione urbana. La figura di Vincenzo Marulli, intelletuale napoletano di formazione illuminista, ha conosciuto solo di recente una considerazione da parte della critica. I suoi due trattati di architettura "L'arte di ordinare i giardini" del 1804, e "Su l'Architettura e su la nettezza delle citt.... Idee" del 1808, sono considerati oggi tra i pi-- interessanti testi della cultura architettonica italiana degli inizi dell'ottocento. "Il titolo modesto non presuppone l'importanza del libro, che invece costituisce un vero e proprio trattato sull'argomento; il suo maggiore interesse risiede nel valore ancora attuale di certe proposte, risultato dei viaggi compiuti attraverso l'Europa e specialmente nell'Inghilterra, la Nazione che allora era alla testa del grande rinnovamento architettonico ed urbanistico, anche come riflesso del movimento illuministico. La modernita' di vedute del Marulli Š dimostrata particolarmente dal fatto che molti dei giudizi espressi sulle citta' e sulle realizzazioni dell'epoca - in specie su Bath, di cui egli avver … [Click Below for Full Description]
