"Seines Lebens eigentlichste Arbeit aber galt den Versteinerungen und der Gliederung der Juraformation, wobei er eine erstaunliche Fülle von Details zu Tage förderte. (...) Durch alle seine Arbeiten zieht sich wie ein rother Faden der Grundgedanke, daß die Species nicht scharf begrenzt ist, daß nicht nur in dem gleichen stratigraphischen Horizonte vielerlei Varietäten sich abzweigen, sondern daß dieselbe Art auch in mehreren Horizonten übereinander fortlebte, aber gleichfalls verschiedene, oft sogar recht weitgehende Variationen erlebte."

        Autograph signature

      [Undated,, c.1809?-1817]. Clipped signature (approx. 12 × 45 mm), mounted below an engraved portrait of the author. Framed and glazed with UV retardant glass. The signature was originally attached to a fragment of a letter sold at Sotheby's (23 July 1987, lot 36) to an unnamed recipient about dining at the Great House (i.e. Chawton Great House). The fragment was reproduced in Jo Modert's Jane Austen's Manuscript Letters in Facsimile (1990). The signature is mounted below a steel-engraved portrait of Jane Austen, an elaborated version of the engraving after James Andrews used for James Edward Austen-Leigh's Memoir of Jane Austen (1870), ultimately deriving from Cassandra Austen's portrait of her sister.

        Gunda (Kunigunde) von Savigny in einer Pelzhaube. Büste im Dreiviertelprofil nach rechts.

      - Radierung, auf Velin. 7,5:10,3 cm. Literatur: Stoll 62. Sehr guter Abdruck, auf die Plattenkante geschnitten und mit Büttenpapier angerandet. – Sehr selten! Grimm verbrachte den Jahreswechsel 1809/10 bei den Savignys. In diesem Zeitraum ist die Vorzeichnung zu dieser Radierung entstanden, bald danach auch die Radierung selbst, denn 1815 erschien sie in Artarias Mappenwerk. Als 1859 Frau Savigny um Abzüge dieses frühen Porträts bittet, verfügt Grimm weder über einzelne Abzüge noch über die Platte. In seinen „Erinnerungen" liest man eine Erklärung hierfür: „Da ich die Platten wieder abschleifen ließ, um etwas anderes darauf zu radieren, so sind die Abdrücke nur in der nächsten Freunde Hände gekommen und selten geworden." (Aus: A. Stoll, Ludwig Emil Grimm. Erinnerungen aus meinem Leben. Leipzig 1911, S. 106). Der vor allem als Radierer tätige Grimm war 1804-1808 Schüler der Kasseler Kunstakademie bei Gottlieb Kobold (1769-1809), Andreas Range (1762-1828) und Ernst Friedrich Ferdinand Robert (1763-1843). Durch seine Brüder Jacob und Wilhelm Grimm wurde er mit Clemens Brentano (1778-1842) und Achim von Arnim (1781-1831) bekannt, mit denen er zusammenarbeitete. Wohl 1807 lernte Grimm Bettine Brentano (1785-1859) kennen, von der er zahlreiche Porträts anfertigte. In November 1808 zog er nach Landshut zu Brentano und dessen Schwager Friedrich Carl von Savigny (1779-1861). Auf ihre Vermittlung ging er nach München und erlernte Kupferstechen bei Carl Ernst Christoph Heß (1755-1828). Zugleich studierte er an der Münchner Akademie unter Andreas Seidl (1760-1834). Unterbrechung des Studiums 1814 durch Teilnahme an den Freiheitskriegen. Mit Georg Brentano reiste er im Frühjahr 1816 nach Italien, wo er zwei Monate blieb. 1817 kehrte er nach Kassel zurück. 1824 reiste Grimm zum ersten Mal nach Willingshausen und wurde zum Mitbegründer der Willingshäuser Malerkolonie, eine der ersten Malerkolonien Deutschlands. 1832 wurde er an die Kasseler Kunstakademie als Lehrer berufen.

        Die Wahlverwandtschaften. Ein Roman. 2 Bände. Vortitel, 306; 340 S. Grüner Pappbd d. Z. (Rücken unter Verwendung des alten Materials restauriert) mit Rückentitel und Filetenvergoldung.

      Tübingen, J. G. Cotta, 1809.. . Erste Ausgabe. Die 'Wahlverwandtschaften' waren ursprünglich als Erzähleinlage in den 'Wanderjahren' geplant, der Stoff der kompliziert angelegten Dichtung wuchs jedoch schnell zu einem eigenen Roman an. Mit dem Titel und der "chemischen Gleichnisrede" nahm Goethe Bezug auf einen damaligen Begriff aus dem Bereich der Naturwissenschaften. Es wurde damit die Eigenschaft bestimmter chemischer Elemente bezeichnet, bei Annäherung anderer Stoffe ihre bestehende Verbindung zu lösen und sich mit neu hinzutretenden Elementen gleichsam 'wahlverwandtschaftlich' zu verbinden. "Goethe übertrug dieses an chemischen Elementen beobachtete Kräftespiel von Anziehung und Abstoßung auf den Bereich der Geschlechterbeziehung: In der konfliktgeladenen Gegenüberstellung verschiedener Liebeskonzepte - der leidenschaftlich-ungebundenen und der ehelich-institutionalisierten Liebe - problematisiert der Roman das Verhältnis von Freiheit und Notwendigkeit, von Naturtrieben und kulturellen Normen. Das chemische Modell ... dient jedoch nicht nur dazu, den Modellfall einer zerbrechenden Ehe zu inszenieren und damit einer freieren Form des Verhältnisses von Mann und Frau zu reden (die am Ende ohnehin in eine Aporie mündet). Vielmehr zeigt das Werk - selbst ein Experiment - das bis zum Scheitern reichende Bemühen um kulturelle Ordnungsmuster schlechthin ... Bei den meisten Zeitgenossen stießen die 'Wahlverwandtschaften' allerdings auf wenig Beifall. Immer wieder wurde der Vorwurf der Immoralität ... erhoben, und seine Nachwirkung im 19. Jh. war, im Unterschied zum 'Wilhelm Meister', gering, obgleich die 'Wahlverwandtschaften' mit ihrer Verknüpfung von Eheproblematik und Gesellschaftskritik am Anfang einer Reihe großer Eheromane des 19. Jhdts, wie 'Madame Bovary', 'Anna Karenina' oder 'Effi Briest', stehen. Erst seit der Wende zum 20. Jh. wurde, eingeleitet durch die Äußerungen von Th. Fontane, H. v. Hofmannsthal, den Brüdern Mann, A. Döblin oder W. Benjamin, die Modernität dieses Romans erkannt, dessen treffende Darstellung einer sich im Übergang befindlichen Zeit bereits Achim v. Arnim registriert hatte" (KNLL). - Exlibris. Unterschiedlich stockfleckig, breitrandig. - Goed. IV 3, 388, 181. Hagen 327. Hirzel A 273. Meyer 925. Kippenberg I 384. Borst 1089.

"The year 1809 saw the publication of Le Parfumeur Imperial by C. F. Bertrand. There was no longer a royal perfumer, but the actual substance of Bertrand's book contained material similar to that discussed by eighteenth-century handbooks, such as how to make pomades of hyacinths, roses, jonquils, and mixed flowers (pommades de pot-pourri). Bertrand also contributed to the raging controversies by suggesting his own recipe for eau de cologne." - Morris, Fragrance, p. 173. Also included are recipes for vinegar waters, then a necessary part of the toilet for reasons of health. "[Vinegar] was a preservative against contagion and 'bad air.' By the time Bertrand's book appeared, perfumed gloves were no longer the rage they had been. The Hungary waters were prominent, as were the eaux de Cologne." - Sagarin, The Science and Art of Perfumery, p. 217. Montesquiou, Pays des Aromates, no. 20. Not in Wiggishoff.

        sefer Leshon Khakhamim [Hagada shel Pesach. Passover Haggadah]

      Daniel and Samuel Sa'adon, Leghorn [= Livorno], Italy 1809 - In Hebrew, though as always in the hagadot, the "Ha Lakhma Anya" and the "Khad Gadya" are in Aramaic. Yudlov 522. Yaari 366. Popular two part commentary on the Pesah Haggadah, comprised of Midrash be-Hiddush by the kabbalist R. Eliezer Nahman Foa (d. c. 1659) and Hevel Benei Yehudah by R. Simeon ben Judah Havilyo. Both commentaries had been printed earlier, Midrash be-Hiddush in Venice (1641) and Hevel Benei Yehudah in Mantua (1694-95) but this is the first joined printing. There are approbations from R. Jacob Nunes Weiss, R. Elijah Hayyim Walnisin, and R. Solomon Gallico, all of Livorno. The introduction to Midrash be-Hiddush is by twenty-five of R. Foa¿s studnets, their names follwing the text. They write that¿ Therefore, it is for us to praise the midrash that came out of our bet midrash by the sage R. Eliezer Nahman Foa, who with great scrutiny found in the verses and words of the sages details of numerous miracles and plagues with which the Mizrim were smote. In it are many new interpretations, fit for the table of kings [etc.] Although the rav desired to merit the public and bring them closer to Torah, nevertheless due to his great humility he did not wish to bring it to press, for it is his practice to conceal his name. However, we, members of his society, having tasted of this midrash and finding it a ¿flask of balsam oil¿ (Sanhedrin 108a, Avodah Zarah 35b) lying in a corner, our spirits determined to move it from corner to corner so that its aroma will be dispersed.¿ R. Havilyo¿s commentary is a combination of literal and kabbalastic interpretations. An example of the latter is, ¿In every generation a person is obligated to regard himself as if he had come out of Egypt . . . It comes to instruct us that every Jewish soul was under the domain of the kelipot and the Holy One, blessed be He, came in His glory, so to speak, and delivered us for the sake of His kindness and brought us out from there and we find that the spirit of resurrection . . .¿ R. Foa was a student of R. Moses Isserles (Rema) and R. Menahem Azariah da Fano and the teacher of R. Moses Zacuto. He established a Hevrah Kedushah (burial society) in Reggio entitled Hevrat ha-Aluvim. R. Havilyo was a grandson of the renowned kabbalist R. David Havilyo. R. Simeon¿s father came to Erez Israel from Egypt, serving as av bet din in Hebron. R. Simeon too served as rabbi in Hebron, subsequently traveling in the east, and, in 1694-95, was in Italy, where he published two of his books, Hevel Benei Yehudah and Helek Benei Yehudah, both comprised of his own insights and those of his father. These commentaries have since become popular among Belz Hassidim and been republished by them with other commentaries. Mis-paginated, complete. [2], 62 leaves for a total of 64 leaves. Possibly original boards. Gilt label on front board bears the Hebrew inscription: Hagvir HaMeromam kvod harav David Ricanati N. R. V. = Natre Rakhmana uParke. [= The illustrious and wealthy David Ricanati, may God preserve him.] The name of this scion of the illustrious Italian Jewish family appears to have been written over another name, now illegible, written in smaller letters in Rashi script. The recto of the blank front free endpaper and the title page both have a purple ink rubber stamp impression: BIBLIOTECA TALMUD TORA FERRARA. Arm¿.Scaf¿.Num¿. And the front pastedown has the penciled inscription in the hand of an old or ailing person: "C. 2. 271". This edition is not illustrated. Additional scans available upon request.

      Andrichau (Westgalizien, heute Andrychow in Polen), 26. VII. 1809.. 3 SS. auf gefalt. Bogen. Mit eigenh. U. des Oberstleutnants J. G. v. Schill und des Oberleutnants Paul v. Vörös (Vöresz) sowie eines weiteren Offiziers (v. Reisky?). Folio.. Letzte Revisionsliste des vom 73jährigen Johann Georg von Schill gegen Napoleon gebildeten Freicorps, das noch im Sommer trotz des bereits weitgehend verlorenen Fünften Koalitionskriegs mit seinen Werbungen fortgefahren hatte und nun zugunsten österreichischer Freiwilligenverbände aufgelöst wurde. Das berühmtere Freicorps seines Sohnes Ferdinand von Schill war bereits Ende Mai in Stralsund zerrieben, sein Kommandant getötet worden. Schill Vater, der das preußische Heer verlassen hatte, um mit österreichischer Unterstützung ein "Schlesisches Freicorps" zu bilden, hatte seit Anfang Mai als Verbindungsoffizier zur Truppe seines Sohnes den Oberleutnant Franz Frhr. von Loen an seiner Seite; die vorliegende Liste weist ihn aus als "Auf Werbung in Troppau". Insgesamt verzeichnet sind 69 Husaren mit 56 Pferden (unter v. Loen), 35 Mann Infanterie (unter Alexius Anthes und Kasimir v. Woyna) und 19 Mann Jägerei (unter Ludwig Frhr. v. Trach und v. Schmelzing). "Das Bild, wie es sich aus den Standeslisten ergab, war, an dem gemessen, was erwartet wurde, wenig erfreulich [...] Da sich in Preußisch-Schlesien durch Einspruch der zuständigen Regierungen die in Aussicht genommenen Orte als Werbeplätze nicht verwenden ließen, mußten diese in Westgalizien, Österreichisch-Schlesien und Nordmähren eingerichtet werden [...] Da die polnische Bevölkerung Krakaus und ganz Westgaliziens [...] sich feindlich verhielt und die Zahl der Ausländer, die sich meldeten, keineswegs hinreichte, um die Reihen des Korps zu füllen, beantragte [Schill], Werbeoffiziere in die Lager der Hauptarmee Erzherzog Karls zu schicken [...] Es erfolgte aber keine Antwort. [...] Die Freikorps gingen alle der Auflösung entgegen. [...] Am 26. Juli war es soweit. Von Targanica [bei Andrichau] aus, dem letzten Standort des Freikorps, wurden die Füseliere zum österreichisch-galizischen dritten Freibataillon, die Husaren zum österreichischen Kosakenpulk transferiert" (Ernstberger, J. G. v. Schill [Gräfeling 1959], S. 119-121). Ähnliche Assent- und Transferierungslisten finden sich noch im Wiener Kriegsarchiv (Hofkriegsratsakten, 1810/G/4/31/3).

        Saggio sopra la vera struttura del cervello dell' uomo e degl' animali e sopra le funzioni del sistema nervosa.Sassari: Nella Stamperìa da S.S.R.M. Privilegiata, 1809.

      First edition, extremely rare, of this pioneering work on neurophysiology, anticipating many of the discoveries made by Flourens fifteen years later. OCLC locates four copies in America. "Rolando was the first to demonstrate that the cerebellum was not the 'seat of life.' In his publication of 1809 he maintained that the cerebellum was responsible for movements... Rolando was a brilliant and diligent observer. He was the first to describe the <i>substantia gelatinosa</i> (which today bears his name) in the posterior horn. And his experiments in decerebrated animals convinced him that the hemispheres are responsible for higher functions such as the will and judgement ... Finally, Rolando was the first to detect consistency in the arrangement of the cortical gyri. Even up to the 1860s these seemed to many a mere chaos. To Rolando these convolutions could be "reduced to regular and specific shapes and positions." He found the central gyri to be constant features and described the <i>fissure centralis</i>, a structure that has become firmly linked with Rolando's name up to the present day" (Sammet, p. 405). ❧Garrison-Morton 1388.<br/><br/> "Working with animals, Rolando stimulated different parts of brain with galvanic current. He found that the most violent convulsions occurred when his electrodes were placed on the cerebellum. He also noted that when this organ was removed from pigs, sheep, birds and reptiles, the animals acted as if they were paralyzed. Smaller lesions resulted in uncertain and hesitant movements and led to swaying and loss of coordinated motor control. When the lesions were only on one side of the cerebellum, the effects were ipsilateral to the damage. <br/><br/> "Rolando's lesions and behavioral observations were admittedly crude. But as a result of seeing "weakness," paralysis, and instability after cerebellar lesions, he assigned the function of muscle movement to this structure, and distinguished this from the stupor that followed large cortical lesions.<br/><br/> "These findings, and his theory that the cerebellum functioned as a whole, were described in a book that he engraved, printed and bound himself in 1809. His <i>Saggio</i>, however, had a very limited printing and was not widely disseminated. The limited availability of Rolando's findings proved to be significant because his experiments on the cerebellum remained largely unknown to the wider scientific community for a number of years. <br/><br/> "It was during this time that Marie-Jean-Pierre Flourens began to publish his own "new" experiments on the cerebellum. This touched off a debate over primacy. Rolando's writings, unknown to Flourens when he began his work, were only later translated into French. It was then realized that the two men had been doing some of the same things" (Finger, p. 212).<br/><br/> Luigi Rolando (1773-1831) studied medicine in his home-town of Torino, where he was influenced particularly by Giovanni Francesco Cigna (1734-1790), known for his research on magnetism and electricity in animals. "In 1799 the duke of Savoy, Piedmont and Aosta, Vittorio Emanuele I, was forced to emigrate to Sardinia in the wake of the revolutionary wars and in 1804 invited Rolando to come to Sardinia as professor of practical medicine at the University of Sassari. Because of an outbreak of yellow fever in Livorno he had to stop at Florence, where he stayed for three years. Here he got to know the anatomist Paolo Mascagni (1752-1815), then famous for his work on lymphatic vessels ... Here Rolando could improve his knowledge of anatomy and especially his proficiency in anatomical drawing - many of the illustrations in his publications originate from his own hand. From 1807 to 1814 Rolando lived in Sardinia and could return to Torino only after the Napoleonic wars" (Sammet, p. 404). <br/><br/> S.

        Dichterin (1785-1859), vor ihrer Heirat mit Achim von Arnim (1811) geb. Brentano: Eigenh. Brief ohne U. O. O. u. D. [Februar 1809].,

      - Quer-Kl.-4°. 1 S. Mit Siegelrest und Adresse Maxplatz No 10, München. "Lieber Tieck, sogleich wird mich Clemens [ihr Bruder Clemens Brentano (1778-1842)] ablösen, um Ihnen den Zweck dieses Briefes deutlich zu machen. Wann kommen Sie hier her, wahrscheinlich wenn ich weg gehe, dann können Sie in meinem Zimmer wohnen, ich werde eine Kaze (sic!) anschaffen zu Ihrer Gesellschaft. Der Überbringer dieses Briefes, ist ein unschuldig in Sie verliebter, wie ich höre. Freund ich bitte, sind Sie kriegerischer Natur [di]eß einzige mögt ich nur wissen, wegen gewißen Ursachen, ob Sie nehmlich im Stande sind ein Gewehr ohne Zittern abzuschießen. oder gehen Sie lieber mit Bogen und Pfeil um, weil es nicht knallt, es ist mir sehr [im Original unterstrichen] wichtig dieß zu wißen." - // - 1808 wurde Schelling Generalsekretär der neu gegründeten Akademie der Bildenden Künste in München. Friedrich Carl von Savigny, ein Studienfreund von Clemens Brentano, war seit seiner Hochzeit (1804) mit dessen älteren Schwester Kunigunde Brentano auch mit Bettine verschwägert. 1808 wurde er auf eine ordentliche Professur für römisches Zivilrecht an die Universität Landshut berufen. Und so wurde München 1808/09 ein Treffpunkt der Romantiker. Im Oktober 1808 war der befreundete Dichter Ludwig Tieck (1773-1853), dem Bettine sehr zugetan war, nach München gekommen und an Gicht erkrankt. Bettine, die im Haus des französischen Emigranten Moy de Sons wohnte, pflegte ihn. Clemens, kurzzeitig in München, leistete dem kranken Dichter Gesellschaft und las ihm vor. - Caroline Schelling schreibt am 1. März 1809 an Pauline Gotter: "Hier kam sie [Bettine] mit ihrem Schwager Savigny her, welcher in Landshut angestellt ist, blieb aber ohne ihn, um singen zu lernen und Tieck zu pflegen, der seit Weihnachten an der Gicht kläglich danieder liegt und viel zartes Mitleid erregt." - Kleiner, ausgebesserter Randschaden vom Entsiegeln.

      1809. CLOCHAR, Pierre. Palais, Maisons et Vues D&#39;Italie. [8], title, [19], [1] pp. Illustrated with 102 numbered full-page engraved plates by Bence and Clochar. Folio, 465 x 305 mm, bound in original French red paper over boards, leather title label on spine. Uncut. Paris: P. Gueffier, 1809.First Edition. French architect Pierre Clochar (b. 1774) made these drawings of Italian buildings and architecture in situ. Published upon his return to France, this collection of illustrations documents not only the landmark architecture of Italy but also vernacular edifices, keeping with Clochar&#39;s declared intention to present Italian buildings either unknown or previously unpublished (Introduction). Many of the images in Clochar&#39;s Palais, Maisons et Vues show denizens in local costume. Among the plates are floor plans, views of facades and ornaments, and cross sections of buildings. Clochar&#39;s study focuses on the buildings in and around Rome, but includes views of Florence, Tivoli, Fiesole, Venice, Ferrara, Pisa, and Genoa, as well. A few very light spots internally. Overall, an extremely fine copy in its original binding, rebacked with matching red paper spine. PROVENANCE: Circular ink stamp on title of the Convent d&#39;Etude de France; ex-libris of architect Rohault de Fleury (1801-1875), who designed several public and private buildings in Paris and wrote the first "Manuel des lois du batiment" (Paris: Central Society of Architects, 1862), followed by a number of magnificently illustrated works: "Les instruments de la Passion" (Paris, 1870); "L&#39;évangile, études iconographiques et archéologiques" (Tours, 1874); and "La Messe, études archéologiques sur ses monuments" (Paris, 1883-98).

        Kleines Andenken gewidmet Einem hohen, gnädigen Adel und verehrungswürdigen Publikum von Karl Joseph Pellkofen, Souffleur des hiesigen National-Theaters.

      Bamberg, Selbstverlag, 1809. - 8 Seiten. Umschlag der Zeit. Seltene, einzige Ausgabe. Kein Nachweis über KVK. - Die kleine Schrift dokumentiert den kurzen Zeitabschnitt, in dem E.T.A. Hoffmann (1776-1822) am Bamberger Theater wirkte. Mit der Auflistung des Personalbestands des Theaters und dem Verzeichnis der aufgeführten Stücke vom 16. Oktober bis 30. Dezember 1808. Seit September war Hoffmann hier Musikdirektor und ist in der Namensliste neben Anton Dittmayer (hier fälschlich Dietmeier) als solcher aufgeführt. Zur Eröffnung des neu gebauten Theatergebäudes am Schillerplatz ist für den 16. Oktober 1808 E.T.A. Hoffmanns Allegorie "Das Gelübde" verzeichnet (zu der Heinrich Cuno die Musik schrieb), die am 23. "auf Befehl" wiederholt wurde. Hier gibt die Liste der in Folge gespielten Stücke interessante Einblicke in Hoffmanns Tätigkeit. Bekanntlich scheiterte er aber sehr bald bei einer von ihm dirigierten Oper und durch verschiedene Intrigen, so dass er die Stelle als Musikdirektor bereits nach zwei Monaten wieder verlor. In dieser Zeit entwickelte er auch die fiktive Figur des Kapellmeisters Johannes Kreisler, sein literarisches Alter Ego. - Sehr gut erhaltenes, außerordentlich seltenes Dokument zu E.T.A. Hoffmann und der Bamberger Theatergeschichte. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      1809. Radierung, Roulette und Kaltnadel, 1809, auf Velin. 32,5:41,7 cm. Literatur: Le Blanc 79; Perez 139, VI (von VI). - Sehr guter, vollrandiger Abdruck, Einriß im oberen Rand restauriert. - In einer Zeile unter der Darstellung heißt es: "Dessine et grave a l'eau forte par J. J. De Boissieu 1809 a l'age de 73 ans.". Der hauptsächlich als Zeichner, Radierer und Kupferstecher tätige Künstler studierte in seiner Geburtsstadt an der Ecole gratuite de dessin. Darüber hinaus bildete er sich autodidaktisch weiter. 1758 veröffentlichte er im Auftrag des Pariser Stechers und Kupferstichverlegers Pariset seine ersten Radierungen. 1761-1764 setzte er sein Studium in Paris fort, wo er Schüler des Historienmalers J.-Ch. Frontier (1701-1763) und eines gewissen Lombards war. In Paris verkehrte er im Kreis von J.G. Wille (1715-1808), Jos. Vernet (1714-1789), L.-E. Watelet (1780-1866), J.-B. Greuze (1725-1805), J.G. Soufflot (1713-1780) und dem jungen Herzog Alex Duc de La Rochefoucauld, den er 1765-1766 nach Italien begleitete. In Italien schuf er zahlreiche Landschaftszeichnungen und Abbildungen von Monumenten. Nach seiner Rückkehr nach Lyon hatte er großen Erfolg mit seinen Zeichnungen und Radierungen, mit Porträts und italienischen und niederländischen Landschaften sowie der heimischen Landschaft von Lyon. Auch als Reproduktionsstecher nach Gemälden oder Skulpturen fand er zahlreiche Auftraggeber. 1771 wurde der Künstler zum königlichen Berater und Kämmerer berufen. 1780 erfolgte die Aufnahme in die Lyoner Akademie. Während der französischen Revolution stand er unter der Protektion des Künstlers J.-L David (1748-1825) - seine Kupferplatten wurden unter gesetzlichen Schutz gestellt. 1802 wurde Boissieu Mitglied der Verwaltungskommission des Kunstkonservatoriums. 1806 bis zu seinem Tode war er Bürgermeister von Lentilly in der Nähe von Lyon. Boissieus Arbeiten sind in den Museen weltweit zu finden, so in Paris im Louvre, in Frankfurt am Main im Städel oder in der National Gallery of Art in Washington DC.
