        L'Effraie ou la Fressaie

      - A detailed hand colored lithograph by Edouard Travies (1809-1865) from his sweeping series 'Les Oiseaux Les Plus Remarquables.', which was published in Paris & London: Berrieux and Gambert, Junin & Co, [circa 1857]. and printed by Lemercier of Paris. Overall this print measures 21 1/8 x 14 5/8 inches. The work of Edouard Travies represents a pinnacle in French ornithological illustration, and his original work is exceedingly rare. Natural history, as a descriptive pursuit bent on identifying new species, demanded detailed illustrations, and the minute precision of Travies's work places him with the best of France's scientific artists. As is evident in these watercolors, his attention to esthetic qualities was no less perceptive. Travies's images of birds are considered to be some of the finest ever produced. His illustrations describe the species of birds native to Central and South America, and all show the birds in association with flowering plants indigenous to their habitats, such as orchids and passion flowers. Overall this print is in very good condition with some foxing/staining and evidence of previous binding on left margin.

        Historic Anecdotes and Secret Memoirs of the Legislative Union, between Great Britain and Ireland.

      London. Published by G. Robinson, 1st Sept. (J. Moyes, Printer, London). 1809. - thick folio, 35cm, first edition, xlii,302pp., engraved frontis portrait (the Author), engraved title-page vignette, 32 engraved portrait plates, 3 tipped-in facsimile letters, 2 tipped-in errata leaves, in later half calf, gilt ruled raised bands, gilt spine title on crushed green morocco label, blind decorations in the panels, t.e.g., some scattered foxing and some toning else a very good to fine copy of the rare complete first edition. (cgc) Author's Presentation Copy. With a one page signed ms. letter laid in, from the author to his publisher; Sirs. Give Mr. (Hu?and) a large paper copy of my book and his choice of proof prints. J. Barrington. . Provenance: In faint pencil on the bottom margin of the above letter: Purchased by me at Hatairds (?), John Hare. The printer colophon is on the bottom edge of the first text page. National Library Ireland online catalogue cites 1 copy. There is only 1 complete copy (of 6 listings) on WorldCat, at University Kansas Libraries. "Originally announced to be in 10 parts but apparently suppressed after 5 parts (see below) were published. A new edition was issued in London, by Henry Coburn & R. Bentley. 1835, in 2 vols, 4to, with 36 portrait plates. Presumably from parts left over from the first edition. Sir Jonah Barrington, (1760-1834), Irish politician, was appointed an Admiralty Court Judge in 1798. This is an important book for the era covering the subjects of the 1798 Rebellion, The Volunteers and The Union. Barrington's character was called into question but he also on occasions acted with principal. He campaigned against the Union and lost his position when he voted against it. He had helped the government get votes in its favour by bribery. When he lost his seat in 1803 the government made him a judge. The first part of the present work was published in 1809 causing great alarm because of its uncompromising content and style. It is thought he was induced to delay later parts as the government shrank from exposure of its conduct in carrying out the Act of Union. Financial irregularities forced his removal from the bench but the threat of these memories apparently meant that he was allowed to reside in France from 1815 and act as a judge by deputy until 1830. Contrary to some biographical sources, despite similarities, this is not the same work as his Rise and Fall of the Irish Nation. "Barrington could have been Solicitor-General if he had agreed to vote for the Union. He gives himself and perhaps deserves great credit for this renunciation, but his political manoeuvres of the period of 1801-2 were far from simple. Between 1805 and 1810 his debts led him to misappropriate court funds and he was finally brought to account for this in 1830. . All his books are valuable documents for the social and political life of 18th century Ireland. He has been much frowned on by puritan critics but he was simply a politician of his time whose chief fault was to be found out. It is absurd to condemn him for not sharing the high standards of modern Irish political life". - Brady & Cleeve. The broad collection of portraitures were engraved by James Heath and include Barrington, Edward Fitzgerald, Francis Rawdon, Henry Grattan, Henry Flood, Charles Cornwallis, and others involved in the machinations over Irish Legislative Union.

        The Life of Admiral Lord Nelson, K.B. From His Lordship's Manuscripts

      London, Printed by T. Bensley, For T. Cadell and W. Davies, and W. Miller, , 1809 . 2 volumes, quarto (340 × 270 mm). Contemporary calf, rebacked with the original spines laid down, raised bands, wavy rolled tooling to the bands, gilt lozenges to the compartments, blind palmette roll to the boards within French fillet gilt panels, gilt corner pieces, edges marbled, marbled endpapers. Frontispiece and 3 other plates to vol. I, 7 plates to vol. II, 4 of them accompanied by plans, headpieces, vignettes and facsimiles to the text, double page pedigree to vol. I. Contemporary bookplate of John Lind, physician to Haslar Naval Hospital, a position in which he had succeeded his father, author of A Treatise of the Scurvy; later bookplate of Lieutenant Commander Geoffrey Gowlland of the School of Naval Co-operation, Lee-on -Solent, letter loosely inserted records the book's presentation to him in 1935 as the Henry Leigh Carslake Prize. A little rubbed at the extremities, rebacked with the original spines quite neatly laid down, slight tape mark to the front endpaper of vol. I, some light browning, but overall a very good copy. First edition. "One of the main foundation stones of the Nelson legend" (Wilson, "Nelson Apotheosised" in Cannadine (ed.), Admiral Lord Nelson). McArthur, a former naval purser, had served with Nelson in the Mediterranean and had already begun collecting material for a biography when he saw "an advertisement in the papers announcing that the Nelson family had selected a gentleman 'of high respectability and rank' to write the life, and asking all who had letters … in their possession not to make their material available to anyone else." McArthur came forward claiming, groundlessly, that Nelson himself had asked him to write his life, and that he had already incurred considerable expense in preparing the book, including the commissioning of a set of paintings to be engraved as illustrations. An unseemly squabble ensued, the outcome of which was fairly inevitable in that Earl Nelson was under pressure from the Prince Regent to commission his librarian and chaplain, James Stanier Clarke, to write the book. It was agreed that the authors would pool their efforts, but not before they had further fallen out over whose name should come first on the title page. That we do not refer to McArthur & Clarke is a lasting memorial to the usefulness of a powerful patron. The finished work is wonderfully illustrated with anecdotal headpieces and plates by Westall and battle-scenes by Nicholas Pocock. The subscribers list is a remarkable directory of the great and the good of Regency Britain with an inevitable emphasis on naval notables. William Beckford took the only copy on vellum, Sir Home Popham and Admiral Keats proof copies, as also Admirals Cornwallis and Anson, Earl St Vincent and Lady Hamilton. Thomas Masterman Hardy had an ordinary copy, as did the Sandwich Book Society and Leeds Circulating Library. A sound, solid and not unattractive copy of this important work.

        37. Coronilla varia (Crown Vetch)

      - Baldassare Cattrani Collection Botannique Original watercolor on vellum, with border, double-ruled in black ink Sheet size: approx. 20 ½" x 14 ¾" Framed size: 26” x 19 3/4” (framed in museum quality gold leaf frame in period style, archival materials, UV plexi) Ca. 1809 Provenance: The Collection of Prince Eugène de Beauharnais Baldassare Cattrani, Roman by birth and a contemporary of Pierre-Joseph Redouté, was an incredibly significant figure in botanical art during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Not only did he gain permission to study and paint in Padua's legendary botanical garden from esteemed directors Giovanni Marsili and Giuseppe Antonio Bonato, but he also won highly prized commissions from Empress Joséphine at Malmaison. The watercolors offered represent a handful of the works Cattrani most likely executed for Eugène Beauharnais, son of Joséphine, loved stepson of Napoleon Bonaparte, viceroy of Italy and eventual duc de Leuchtenberg. (The other possibility is that Cattrani created these watercolors for Joséphine herself.) Nearly unparalleled in terms of depth and quality, Cattrani's watercolors are masterpieces of the highest order. Cattrani, who was active from 1776 to 1810, could have first come in contact with Prince Eugène during the latter's Italian campaign of 1796-7. Nevertheless, it is more likely that Cattrani earned a commission from the commander in 1809. (This is the same year that Prince Eugène led the Army of Italy to victory during the War of the Fifth Coalition.) By this later date, Prince Eugène would have been wholly familiar with Redouté's Les Liliacées project, a monumental and highly influential undertaking which was commissioned by his mother at Malmaison. As such, Les Liliacées likely heavily inspired Prince Eugène to contract a similar collection of botanical watercolors on vellum for himself. Prince Eugène could not have been disappointed with Cattrani's work. Not only is the quality of Cattrani's vellum higher than Redouté's, but the technical skill of Cattrani matches the level of the French master's as well. Indeed, each of Cattrani's watercolors, beautifully composed and carefully painted, is remarkably high in scientific and artistic quality. And to be sure, few artists of Cattrani's era, excluding Redouté, could rival his clear and assured style and ability to portray plants elegantly and accurately. Equally significant to their value, Cattrani’s watercolors are entirely of the tradition and style of the “Velin du Roi,” or Vellums of the King. This tradition commenced with Louis XIV's patronage of the work of Nicolas Robert. The finest watercolors in the world were produced by members of this school. These exquisite and exceptionally rare watercolors constitute a treasure in the history of all botanical art. Other of Cattrani’s works can be found in the esteemed collection of Mrs. Paul Mellon at Oak Spring in Upperville, Virginia and the Garden Library at Dumbarton Oaks in Washington, D.C. Any opportunity to acquire works by this gifted and as yet shockingly underrated Italian artist should not be overlooked.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      O. O., 21. VIII. o. J.. 1 S. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief).. An Baron Friesenhoff, Attache an der österreichischen Gesandtschaft in Neapel, mit der Bitte, für ihn die drei Tempel von Paestum in der Größe einer halben Handbreite zu bestellen. Ein Viertel derselben sei wohl zu klein und würde nichts Hübsches darstellen. Er zögere, die 45 Dukaten zu bezahlen, die der Handwerker (oder Künstler) verlange: "Je [...] vous prie de commander pour moi les 3 temples de pestum, dans la dimension de la hauteur d'un demi palme. Je pense que celle d'un quart est trop petite pour donner quelque chose de joli et je me tarde a depenser les 45 Ducats que l'ouvrier demande. Soyez assez bon pour obtenir de lui qu'il se hate le plus possible [...]". - Viesse de Marmont besiegte die österreichischen Truppen in der Schlacht bei Znaim 1809 und bekleidete daraufhin eine Zeitlang den Posten eines Generalgouverneurs von Illyrien. 1812 kämpfte er gegen Wellington in der für Frankreich unglücklichen Schlacht bei Salamanca, bei der ihm eine Kugel den rechten Arm zerschmetterte. "In der Völkerschlacht bei Leipzig zeichnete er sich durch umsichtiges und entschlossenes Vorgehen gegen Blüchers schlesische Armee aus" (Wikipedia, Abfrage v. 21. V. 2009), konnte aber trotzdem nichts gegen die überlegenen Truppen der Alliierten ausrichten. "Im Frankreichfeldzug von 1814 wurde Marmonts Korps wieder aufgestellt, doch er vereitelte Napoleons letzte Hoffnungen auf den Sieg, indem er aufgrund eines Geheimabkommens mit Schwarzenberg kapitulierte und damit die Verteidigungslinie seines Kaisers aufbrach" (ebd.). König Ludwig XVIII. ernannte ihn als Gegenleistung für diesen Treuebruch nach der Niederlage Napoleons zum Pair von Frankreich und zum Kapitän der Gardes du Corps, im März 1815 schließlich zum Chef der königlichen Haustruppen, die den König daraufhin auf seiner Flucht nach Gent begleiteten. Während der Hundert Tage strich Napoleon Marmont von der Liste der Marschälle. Marmont galt als "einer der gebildetsten, tüchtigsten Feldherren des französischen Kaiserreiches" (ebd.). - Bl. 2 mit kleinem Ausriß durch Öffnen der Verschlußmarke (keine Textberührung).

        Raccolta di Cinquanta Costumi Pittoreschi

      Lorenzo Lazaro alle Covervile, Rome 1809 - Contemporary dark green half morocco over marbled paper-covered boards, small decorative green morocco title label Provenance: John Thomas Mott (Barningham, Norfolk, armorial bookplate) First edition of the first and best known collection of views of the picturesque costume of Italy. This highly evocative series was a justified 'best-seller' - published in various forms from 1808 to 1828, every 'grand tourist' would return with a copy of this work. The present example, a first edition, shows a crispness that tends to be lost with the later reprints. The images are by turns joyful, comedic, dramatic, tragic and work-a-day. All are engraved with a sureness of line and matchless sense of composition that are the hallmarks of Pinelli's work. The final plate represents the artist himself: Pinelli relaxes, his work done, seated on some Roman masonry, two dogs for company. Cicognara noted that : "Questi sono tolti la più parte dalle abitudini del popolo romano, e sono espressi con una verità e fedeltà insuperabile". Benezit X 951; Choix 17.803; Cicognara 1762; Colas 2370; Hiler 712; Lipperheide Ja12; Nagler XII 480 Nuc 459; Rossetti III n° 8195; Vinet 2294. 10 1/2 x 15 7/8 inches).

        Autograph Letter, signed ("N Webster"), to Samuel M. Hopkins of New York, discussing his plans for a specimen sheet of his proposed Dictionary

      New Haven, june 14, 1809. 4to. 1-1/2 pp. With integral blank, addressed and postmarked on verso. Small tears at fold, outer edges a little ragged, overall very good. In a quarter blue morocco and cloth folder . In 1806 Webster published his first dictionary, A Compendious Dictionary of the English Language, which was a concise dictionary intended for adults containing 37,000 words - a precursor of his great dictionary of 1828. He then published an abridgment of the Compendious Dictionary for use in schools in 1807 (and again in 1817), with the hope that the proceeds from sales of these and from his school books would provide the necessary funding for his great project, an entirely new Complete Dictionary, which, he thought would require only a few years of labor. By 1809, Webster was trying, without great success, to sell subscriptions to the proposed volume. This letter dates from that important period, in which Webster was trying to solicit support for the project. He writes: "I have sent to Dr. Mason a specimen of my proposed Dictionary, with a few preceding observations which I request you to get a sight of - it occurred to me that the issuing of a half sheet in some such form, might aid me in my design, & a specimen of the work was mentioned by Dr. Mason. What measure my friends will think it best to take, I know not. Perhaps they may sign a recommendation of my design, & of the school books whose sales must supply me with the means of prosecuting it - & content that I should publish it with the specimen - they will take time to decide - I saw Dr. Miller & Dr. Kos__(?) of the physicians & Dr. Beech of the Episcopal Church, who expressed the utmost readiness to cooperate with other gentlemen in the design. To the other gentlemen, I wish Dr. Morneyer & some others of the clergy, lawyers & physicians, may be added -" In typical fashion, Webster concludes the letter with some observations on his studies in the Ethiopic language, and remarks "Every new language I examine furnishes a number of new facts, & some new light of this subject, which is not without its use in explaining our own language -" No such specimen sheet of Webster's Dictionary has ever been recorded. Skeel records a Broadside of 1807 (Skeel 581) and notes a "subscription blank, headed with an appeal for support in the project," printed as Appendix XXVII in Emily Ford's Notes on the Life of Noah Webster; two articles by Webster (The Panoplist, February 1810 & Monthly Anthology, March, 1810) appeared around this time announcing the work and asking for support (see Skeel, p. 232); and, finally, a "prospectus" appearing in 1826 was published as an advertisement in the Connecticut Herald (May 2, 1826), with fourteen recommendations from prominent men - but no specimen has ever emerged, despite the evidence of this letter that Webster actually had one produced. An important letter from the early period of Webster's struggle to produce his great dictionary
