        Marie Louise Archid. d' Autriche

      A Paris chez Bance ame M. d'Estampes rue St. Denis and a' Milan chez Joseph M. et Frere Ubiemi M. d' Estampes rue des Servi n. 506 Editeurs, 1810. A captivating portrait of Marie Louise of Austria, Napoleon's second wife. This is a magnificent print of Marie Louise of Austria executed in 1810, the year of her marriage to Emperor Napoleon. In 1809 when Josephine, Napoleon's first wife, failed to give him a son, the Emperor divorced her. He based this action on the spurious grounds that a parish priest had not been present at their marriage, but it was well known that this decision resulted from his desire for a male heir. Two months later he married Marie Louise, the daughter of Francis II, Emperor of Austria, and great-niece of Marie Antoinette. The marriage did nothing to end the enmity between France and Austria, but in 1811 Marie gave birth to a son, Francois Charles, who was made king of Rome. This captivating print depicts Marie at one of the most pivotal moments of her life. She is portrayed as being both innocent and magisterial, fashionable as well as reserved which results in a hauntingly beautiful portrait of this young bride. Rados's print recalls the portrait of Marie, executed in the same year, by Jean Godfrey. Both works are monumental in size and depict the young princess in a park setting. The detailing of Marie's dress and the level of intricate detail in Rados's image, is nothing short of magnificent, and his soft engraving technique gives this print a delicacy, which is immensely appealing. From the collection of William J. Latta of Philadelphia, a 19th century collector of Napoleonic material. Regency to Empire: French Printmaking 1715-1814 no. 124; Le Blanc, Manuel de L'Amateur D'Estampes III, p. 269, no. 12; Lugt, Les Marques de Collections , No. 2825. Stipple with engraving.

        Ueber die Verkrümmungen des menschlichen Körpers und eine rationelle und sichere Heilart derselben.

      Leipzig: Mitzky und Compagnie, 1810. - xiv, 170 pp; 6 plates. Recent marbled boards. Upper blank corner of title page renewed. Foxed (text is quite foxed; plates are only slightly foxed). Almost entirely unopened. Untrimmed. First Edition. Plate I illustrates deformities of the spine, hand, leg, and foot. Plates II-VI illustrate deformities and Jörg's mechanical apparatus to treat them. "The first medical orthopaedist in Germany, Johann Christian Gottfried Jörg (1779-1865) worked here [Leipzig], and in 1810--18 years before the publication of Delpech's De l'orthomorphie--wrote what is regarded as the first scientific textbook of orthopaedics in the world: Über die Verkrummungen des menschlichen Körpers und eine rationelle und sichere Heilart derselben (On the distortions of the human body and a rational and certain method of curing the same). And yet Jörg, like Deventer in Holland, was an obstetrician, a professor of obstetrics, and to some extent a paediatrician. He wrote an excellent account of the morbid anatomy and treatment of club-foot [Über Klumpfüsse und eine leichte und zweckmässige Heilart derselben, 1806], incriminating the tibial muscles, especially the posterior, as the cause of inveterate adduction. He advocated the mechanical management of deformities with appliances and corsets. He says nothing of the operative treatment of torticollis, except that it might have been suitable for a cruder age, but that every case could be cured by his own ingenious device in which a head-band was connected to a breastplate by a ratchet [illustrated in his plate 2]. Jörg succeeded in distinguishing between the curvatures of scoliosis and spinal tuberculosis, but was uncertain about the cause of the gibbus in the latter; the proximate cause lay mostly in the bones, less often in the muscles, and rickets, foul air and malnutrition played a part. He laboured to get victims of infantile paralysis on their feet again. He encouraged the chiropodists. He seems to have had an intuition about the cause of rickets, preferring to admit patients to his own home for supervision, so that it virtually became an orthopaedic clinic, since, left to their parents, 'their diet is seldom adhered to as is necessary if rickets is to be avoided thereby.' He made a poignant appeal which indicates how critical for the advance of orthopaedics was a change in medical attitudes at the start of the 19th century: 'I must risk an entreaty, which is that in future the better heads among the doctors should not let themselves be so intimidated by the diseases discussed here . . . and rescue these afflictions from the executioners, pastors and the like; for, sad to say not only the common man but also often the educated turn to these people because they were occasionally lucky here and there, and because the patients with these disorders were often rejected outright by the better doctors.' This was why the surgeons in Würzburg were so tolerant of Heine and why lay therapists were so successful in practice, if not in results, until far into the century. Orthopaedics was not a field in which a doctor could count on being seen to be successful or show a rapid benefit, rather the reverse; better leave it to the bandagist, splint-maker, masseur, even the charlatan. Yet there came a point when the financial rewards of the latter excited medical hostility" (Le Vay, History of Orthopaedics, pp; 194-96). OCLC locates copies of the first edition in these US libraries: Chicago, NLM, College Physicians Phila. There was a reprinting in 1816, a copy of which is at Harvard. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Two Portraits: Boy with Hoop and Young Girl in a Landscape

      London, ca. 1810] - "Buck, Adam, 1758-1833, portrait painter, elder son of Jonathan Buck, a silversmith of Castle Street, Cork, was born there in 1759. With a younger brother, Frederick, he studied art from an early age, and acquired some repute in youth in his native city as a painter of miniature portraits in water-colour. Coming to London in 1795, he settled at 174 Piccadilly, and soon gained popularity. He not only continued to paint miniature portraits in water-colour, but produced many portraits in oil and crayon of larger size. Between 1795 and 1833, the year of his death, he exhibited at the academy as many as 171 pictures. He also exhibited ten other works at the British Institution and at the Society of British Artists in Suffolk Street. But the pictures that he exhibited represent a small proportion of his labours. Numerous pictures by him were reproduced in coloured engravings, mostly in stipple, and had a wide circulation. Of extant coloured engravings after his pictures the originals of as many as forty or fifty are not known to have been exhibited. Among his sitters were the Earl of Cavan, the Duke of York, Sir Francis Burdett, Major Cartwright, John Cam Hobhouse, and John Burke, author of the Peerage,' and his family. His portraits were carefully finished, although they were stiff in treatment and design. Buck was at the same time busily employed as a teacher of portrait painting, and in 1811 he brought out a volume entitled Paintings on Greek Vases,' which contained a hundred designs, not only drawn, but also engraved by himself. This work, which was planned to continue a similar compilation by Sir William Hamilton, is now extremely scarce. In 1807 he moved from Piccadilly to Frith Street, Soho, and after several changes of residence died at 15 Upper Seymour Street West in 1833. Buck was married and left two sons, Alfred and Sidney; the latter followed his father's profession. A miniature portrait of Buck by himself dated 1804, is in the Sheepshanks gallery of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. " - DNB 10 x 7-1/2 inches (images.

        Meadow below the Flower Garden

      Published by White and Co, London 1810 - A picturesque, tranquil view of the meadow adjacent to Hafod House from "Tour to Hafod," a fine collection of plates depicting the mansion and its surrounding landscape engraved by Stadler after drawings by Smith. Comprised of 15 views, Tour to Hafod also included comprehensive descriptive text by the scientist and collector James Edward Smith. The work was most likely intended as a tribute to the social benefactor and literary man Thomas Johnes (1748-1816), who devoted much of his life to his home region of Cardiganshire, where he served as a lord-lieutenant, a colonel in the militia, and an MP for the borough of Cardigan. Located in Cardiganshire, Western Wales, Hafodychtryd or Hafod for short, was Johnes's country estate. Hafod House, his principal residence, was erected in 1785 in the "gothic" style of Thomas Baldwin of Bath. Upon settling there, Johnes set about ameliorating the conditions of the local poor by providing them with comfortable housing and employing them in a planting project that would beautify the neighboring areas. In addition to his concern for social welfare, he was extremely interested in improving parts of Cardiganshire and actively involved himself in the building of roads and bridges. Born in Irthington in 1749, John "Warwick" Smith was an accomplished topographical draughtsman and watercolourist, who enjoyed the generous patronage of the Earl of Warwick. In addition to his fine engravings of Italy, he contributed numerous illustrations to topographical publications such as Select Views in Great Britain (1812), Views of the Lakes of Cumberland (1791-5), Tour through Wales (1794), and A Tour to Hafod (1810). In 1805, Smith became a member of the Watercolour Society, where he frequently exhibited his works. Cf. Abbey, Scenery of Great Britain and Ireland, 533; cf. Dictionary of National Biography. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving. Very good condition apart from some overall light foxing, mild rippling, and a small water stain in the bottom margin.

        From the Library of New York Signer William Floyd

      New York 1810 - Signed Book. Hannah More, Coelebs in Search of a Wife: Comprehending Observations on Domestic Habits and Manners, Religion and Morals. New York, I. Riley, 1810. 5th American ed. Vol. 1 (of 2), 214 pp. Signed in ink on corner of flyleaf, "Wm. Floyd 1813." This is the 5th American edition of a popular moralistic novel by Englishwoman Hannah More, first published in 1809 and frequently reprinted on both sides of the Atlantic. Historical BackgroundWilliam Floyd (1734-1821) was a gentleman farmer from Brookhaven, Long Island, New York. He was a member of the Suffolk County Militia during the American Revolution, rising to major general. He represented New York in the First and Second Continental Congress (1774-1776), and signed the Declaration of Independence, after New York's legislature permitted its delegates to switch its vote to affirm the irrevocable step on July 9, 1776. Floyd was elected to the First Congress as an anti-Federalist, and served from 1789 to 1791. He later served in the state senate.Hannah More (1745-1833), educator, writer, and social reformer, was born in Stapleton, near Bristol, England. She became a teacher at her older sister's boarding school in Bristol, and wrote pastoral plays such as The Search after Happiness. More moved to London, into an elite literary and political circle which included Samuel Johnson, Edmund Burke, and William Wilberforce. She continued to write books, poems, and moralistic tracts such as Character of a Young Princess (1805), Christian Morals (1813), and Coelebs in Search of a Wife (1809). Her Village Politics, by Will Chip (1792) was designed to counter the radical political and religious views of Thomas Paine and the French Revolution. More also helped establish schools for the poor.ConditionContemporary half calf and paper boards (rubbed).

        An English creamware commemorative jug.

      circa 1810 - With loop handle, printed in black with a half-length portrait of Nelson, titled above, England Expects every Man to do his Duty and ADMIRAL LORD NELSON/Born Sept 29th. 1758 - Died Oct 21st 1805./Aged 47, below, the reverse with a map and text documenting the Battle of Trafalgar. 5¾ in. high(14.6 cm.) The present jug commemorates the life and achievements of Lord Nelson and his naval victory over the Napoleonic allied troops at Trafalgar in 1805. Often hailed as the most influential naval figure in British history, Lord Horatio Nelson was famed for his charismatic leadership in battle and for his skilled understanding of military strategy at sea. During the Battle of Trafalgar, in which Lord Nelson lost his life, the British marine forces, outnumbered by the enemy, was nevertheless able to defeat the Franco-Spanish fleet in what is still remembered as the most crucial naval victory of the British against Napoleon.

Later half vellum over boards, slightly soiled. A fine and fresh copy, with all margins intact. A fine copy, printed on thick paper. The Cedula follows two previous ones made by Charles III in 1778 and 1785 (Real cedula de ereccion de la Compañia de Filipinas de 10 de marzo de 1785), amending and updating them. Under Carlos III a far-reaching change in Spanish colonial commercial policy was introduced, by which the government gradually removed the restrictions on trade between Spain and the colonies. The Compania de Caracas had lost its monopoly in 1781, although it had not been abolished. It had suffered financially during the American War of Independence, and in 1785 it stockholders accepted a proposal to dissolve the Company and to invest their capital in a new Company with a monopoly of trade with the Philippine Islands. The new organization, the Compania de Filipinas, succeeded in increasing trade between Spain and a hitherto dormant possession. Engraved royal arms of Charles V (1788 ¿ 1808) as frontispiece.
