Beau et précieux témoignage de labbé Millault relatif auxévènements de la Commune tels quil les a vécu. Arrêté par les communards et mis en prison à Montmartre le 14 avril 1871, comme beaucoup dautres religieux, Millaulteut la chance den sortir. Il évoque laprison, la population peuvindicative (un garde montredes signes de respects pour labbé et ses confrères),le « tribunal » de la Commune ainsi : « Là [à la Préfecture] jai vu pour la première fois de ma vie un ensemble de figures si sinistres, si féroces, si brutalement vicieuses quejeus une image saisissante de 93 ou plutôt de lenfer ». Sur Raoul Rigault, anticlérical, responsable des arrestations dotages : « Il se conduisit à mon égard avec politesse, il mappela M. le Curé, me dit que mon arrestation avait été illégale et me demande pourquoi je métais laissé arrêté sans demander la présentation du mandat damener. Je répondis que la demande avait été faite, mais que pour toute réponse le Commissaire du Comité central avait tiré de sa poche un révolver armé ». Il fut relâché le 15, subit une perquisition le soir même qui se termina à 1h du matin. Il mentionne aussi les dissentions entre la Commune et le Comité central dont le commissaire exprimait son indépendance vis-à-vis de la Commune.

Manuscrit d'un "Projet d'armement pour les places, forts et batteries de l'île de Walcheren" (embouchure de l'Escaut). Écrit à deux mains, il porte le nom de ses probables auteurs, M. de Lapéreuse et M. Grosjean. Il semblerait qu'il s'inscrive dans la série de mesures prises par Napoléon après l'expédition britannique de cette île en août 1809 conquête qui s'acheva par le départ du corps expéditionnaire le mois suivant, décimé par la malaria. Si l'île attirait tant les convoitises, c'est pour sa position stratégique en aval d'Anvers. Après cet épisode, l'Empereur consacra d'importants moyens à la sécurisation de l'embouchure. Ainsi, peut-on lire : «L'île de Walcheren située dans la mer du Nord et à l'embouchure du Sloé et de l'Escaut occidental en une position avancée qui doit servir de première barrière à l'ennemi qui voudrait gêner la navigation de ce fleuve et offrir un lieu de sûreté à nos vaisseaux qui, réunis dans la rade de Flessingue ou dans son bassin, peuvent malgré les vents et la vigilance de l'ennemi en sortir en tout temps, pour entrer dans l'océan. C'est surtout sous ce dernier rapport que la possession de l'île de Walcheren intéresse la France. » Les auteurs détaillent la position du fort, le nombre de canons actuels, du côté de l'Escaut et du côté de la terre, soit 102 « bouches à feu » (canons, obusiers et mortiers) répartis autour de l'île et la nécessité de passer à 245 : « Mais pour obtenir les résultats qu'on a droit d'attendre d'un pareil armement, il faut coordonner entre elles toutes les parties qui doivent concourir à son effet [...].» Importante … [Click Below for Full Description]

SOCIALISME UTOPIQUE]. [FOURIERISME] - CONSIDERANT (Victor) - GUILLON (Ferdinand) - ARTAUD (Alfred) - MUIRON (Just) - PERREYMOND (M.)
1809. Bel et rare ensemble de quatre textes fouriéristes, dont deux importants essais politiques par Victor Considérant et Ferdinand Guillon.‎ ‎Un volume in-12 et un volume petit in-12 reliés uniformément en demi-veau blond de l'époque, dos lisses ornés, pièces de titre rouges.‎ ‎Exemplaires du fouriériste marseillais Alfred Artaud (1809-1875), en reliures uniformes. Une petite étiquette manuscrite reliée après le titre de l'ouvrage de Ferdinand Guillon, dans le plus petit volume, nous donne une indication de provenance : "Mr Artaud". Il s'agit très vraisemblablement du fouriériste marseillais Alfred Victor Artaud (1809-1875), qui aura fait relier uniformément ces deux volumes. Alfred Artaud apparaît au sein de l’Ecole sociétaire dans les années 1840 quand il assure les relations entre les phalanstériens marseillais et le Centre parisien et s’efforce de développer la propagande phalanstérienne dans les Bouches-du-Rhône. Charles Pellarin, premier biographe de Fourier, dira d'Artaud qu'il fut « un des membres les plus zélés et le chef librement reconnu du groupe phalanstérien » de Marseille.

SACCHINI, Antonio 1730-1786
Paris: [ca. 1809]. 245 x 185 mm. An early proof, without titling. Slightly worn and soiled. Arrigoni & Bertarelli 3949. "In 1770 Burney considered [Sacchini] one of the four greatest composers of Italy, along with Jommelli, Galuppi and Piccinni. While he placed Piccinni supreme in the comic style, he nominated Sacchini 'the most promising composer in the serious'... A critic of the next generation, Giuseppe Carpani, hailed Sacchini as the world's greatest melodist... In general, his style is typical of the late Classical era with its simplicity of texture and balanced phrase structure. At times, however, the Mozartian melodic line gives way to expansive phrases that bring to mind the lyric style of the 19th century. Sacchini's harmony tends to be richer than that of most of his contemporary Italian opera composers..." David DiChiera and Joyce Johnson Robinson in Grove Music Online. Item #25610.
