        [Sofonisba]. Sofonisbe Opera en II Actes arrangé pour le Piano-Forte par C.F. Ebers... Prix 20 Francs... 656. [Piano-vocal score]

      Bonn: N. Simrock [PN 656], 1810. First Edition. Eitner VI, p. 280. Grove Music Online. IMSLP (list of publisher's plate numbers). OCLC no. 67304138. Not in BUC, Hirsch, Hoboken, or Schneider Musikverlag N. Simrock. Sofonisba was first performed at the Teatro del Corso in Bologna on May 19, 1805. "Sofonisba, a classical heroine portrayed by various 17th and 18th century composers, becomes, in Paer's hands, a more realistic figure - a real woman. When circumstances turn against her she takes poison and it is here that Paer seizes the opportunity for something exceptional. The emotionally charged, multi-movement final scene for Sofonisba was something audiences had never encountered before.The impact of these performances of Sofonisba was not lost on Rossini - the opera was revived 15 years later in Naples for his wife, the great Isabella Colbran. In a period when audiences demanded only new operas it seems an extraordinary testament to the innovations of Ferdinando Paer." Opera Rara online. "[Paer] was one of the central figures in the development of opera semiseria during the first decade of the 19th century." Scott L. Balthazar and Julian Budden in Grove Music Online.. Oblong folio.

        Manuscript on paper, entitled from the red leather label on the upper cover "Conditorei von Anna Wild." Written in a very legible hand. 2 p.l., 159, [4], 160-387 pp. 4to (215 x 175 mm.), cont. half-sheep & marbled boards, red leather title piece on upper cover

      [Munich: 1810-20?]. A most interesting and substantial cookbook written in a neat and regular cursive script. It is not a simple accumulation of recipes without arrangement but a series of recipes systematically arranged according to materials and cooking techniques. The manuscript is a fair copy without correction; we have however been unable to trace a printed edition. While the selection of recipes does somewhat correspond to the Baierisches National-Kochbuch published at Munich in 1824, the wording in the printed edition is very different. It is possible that our manuscript served as a source of the above-mentioned Bavarian national cookbook. It seems likely the author is Maria Anna Wild, daughter of a Munich innkeeper. According to the obituaries in the Königlich Bayerischer Polizey-Anzeiger von München of 1827, p. 112, she was born about 1776 and died in 1827. This manuscript cookbook is divided into two parts, each subdivided into four sections with hundreds of recipes. There are a large number of chapters regarding confectionery of all sorts, preparing fruit preserves according to the seasons, plain and fancy cakes, biscuits, gingerbread, ices, sundry creams, chocolate, fruit wines, pies, etc., etc. It is a treasure trove of fine Bavarian cuisine of the early 19th century. Fine condition.

        Physionomies Nationales des Peuples, ou Les traits de leur Visage Comparés à leur Moeurs et Caractères

      Paris: Delaunay, 1810. In excellent condition.. Duodecimo, 25 engraved plates (all hand coloured); mottled pink wrappers. First edition of this fascinating French physiognomical study of the peoples of the world, which compares the facial structures and features of various European races with those of Asians, Africans, and the native inhabitants of many newly-discovered regions including Nootka Sound, Kamchatka, the Sandwich Islands, New Zealand and Australia.The detailed text is illustrated with fine handcoloured engraved plates mainly derived from voyage accounts; for example, the portraits of natives of the Hawaiian Islands, Tanna and Nootka Sound are all based on images that appeared in the publications of Cook's voyages. However, reflecting the importance of the portraits done by Petit while he was in Australia as a member of the Baudin expedition, the example of an Australian aborigine is a good copy of the portrait of "Mosquito" or Y-erran-gou-la-ga, the Port Jackson man, evidence that this portrait, published in Péron's account of the Baudin voyage, became one of the most widely disseminated of all aboriginal images.This is a rare work, known to Ferguson only from his own copy, and not noted by Forbes for the Hawaiian National Bibliography.

        Neptune Oriental...

      Paris: Compagnie des Indes & Dépôt Génerale de la Marine, 1775 - c.1810. Large folio atlas with 69 maps (many double-page), title-page and single contents leaf; in excellent condition, in nineteenth-century quarter calf and green papered boards. Magnificent French marine atlas of the eastern oceans, updated to 1810 using French admiralty charts to provide a full working atlas for officers navigating towards the east, with routes to India, China and South-East Asia. D'Après de Mannevillette (1707-1780), the son of a captain in the service of the Compagnie des Indes, made his first voyage to the Caribbean at the age of 19 after a comprehensive naval education. From the outset he collected information for a future marine atlas of the eastern seas, and after many voyages published the first edition of the Neptune Oriental in 1745. 'The new sea atlas quickly found its way into the pilot cabins of ships of several nations, and its 22 charts were immediately recognised as being superior to all previous maps of Southeast Asian coasts' (Suárez p.238). The success of the Neptune Oriental brought d'Après de Mannevillette a wide following, and he was later employed in the library of the Compagnie des Indes at Lorient. Some thirty years later, in 1775, he published a second edition, completely revised and greatly increased thanks to the information collected from the company logbooks at his disposal. The present example is a yet further publication, with maps assembled from three different sources. Some 46 of the total of 69 maps derive from the 1775 edition of the Neptune Oriental; a further six maps are added from a separately-published supplement of 1781; finally a further 17 French admiralty charts are added, based chiefly on the work of d'Après de Mannevillette, but many of them post-dating his death and most of them updated with recent surveys and discoveries. For example the magnificent double page chart of the Indian Ocean bears an engraved caption beneath the New Holland landmass that reads 'Cette partie de la Nouvelle Hollande est tirée de la Carte génerale du Voyage des Découvertes aux Terres Australes, rédigée par M.L. Freycinet en 1809'. This is the latest dated reference in the charts, suggesting a date of publication of around 1810.Despite their different sources, the maps are similar in appearance and printing; the admiralty charts bear the insignia of the Dépôt Génerale de la Marine and are priced (typically at 1-3 francs). They bear the details of the engraver De la Haye, who has likewise signed many of the maps from the 1775 second edition. By its nature, the Neptune Oriental was a changeable publication. A glance at the Shirley and Phillips catalogues reveals no systematic standardisation of the copies they collated. Indeed, Shirley also records several variations of the 1775 second edition, each with differing totals. The composite nature of the atlas reflects d'Après de Mannevillette's working methods at the Compagnie des Indes in painstakingly comparing and collating information from merchant and naval officers returned from the eastern oceans.Three of the maps here that derive from the 1775 second edition of Neptune Oriental are in fact English maps, published at the instigation of Alexander Dalrymple for the Admiralty around 1770-1771. D'Après de Mannevillette enjoyed a long friendship with Dalrymple; indeed the accuracy of both hydrographers in many ways reflected their free and open correspondence. The inclusion of Dalrymple's maps in such an official French publication is testament to the amicable collaboration that existed between official French and British cartographers working at the highest level. The free exchange of information - especially maritime charting of vital naval importance - only became strained with the onset of war with Napoleonic France. Slight wear at corners of binding.

        Manuscrit autographe / Dialogue galant

      - Musset (Alfred de) (1810-1857) Poète et dramaturge français Manuscrit autographe, sans lieu ni date, incomplet, 4 pages petit in-4 numérotées « 3 » et « 4 », à l’encre bleue. Dialogue galant entre deux personnages, une baronne et un monsieur Moreuil, probablement dans le cadre d’un projet de pièce de théâtre. Le texte semble inédit. « Moreuil : J’implore votre main La Baronne : et vous savez déjà que vous priez en vain » « Savez-vous ce que c’est que l’amour d’une femme ? Savez-vous quels devoirs il impose ? -Oui madame Moreuil. La baronne : vous êtes fort savant. Moreuil : Non certes, mais je crois qu’un beau et galant homme encourageant sa foi fait une chose sainte et que se destiné au bonheur du devoir à jamais enchaîné ne craint plus rien du monde Il n’est plus un écueil quand une femme est tout et la joie et l’orgueil. La baronne : C’est fort joliment dit et je suis trop heureuse ; mais vous me trouverez peut-être pointilleuse je songe qu’à ces mots si pleins de dignité, il manque un ornement Moreuil : Lequel ? La baronne : La vérité. Tenez, moi, sans détours, sans périphrase vaine, je veux anéantir la trame quotidienne dont je crois entrevoir le fil prémédité. Vous êtes contre moi violemment irrité. Moreuil : Comment ? La baronne : Mon Dieu ! monsieur, j’aurais mauvais grâce à nier l’entretien que j’eus sur la terrasse avec Madame Joris et que vous rappelez. je suis la criminelle, et, si vous le voulez, j’ai rompu votre hymen ; mais que votre justice m’absolve en sûreté J’ai tout fait sans malice. Pouvais-je supposer moi, que madame Joris fût aussi difficile en fait de bons maris et qu’un simple petit innocent bavardage dût engloutir l’espoir d’un brillant mariage ? Tenez nous causions bal, coulisses d’opéra, chiffons, modes, caprice, amour et caetera. Moi je vous ai dépeint comme un homme à la mode aimant les fines moeurs et la vertu commode. ( ) Moreuil : J’implore votre main La Baronne : et vous savez déjà que vous priez en vain. Cette main est promise et dans un mois, je pense, je serai, si Dieu veut, comtesse de Glarence » À l'âge de 22 ans, Musset choisit d’entamer une carrière littéraire. Musset tente sa chance au théâtre. Mais après l'échec de La Nuit Vénitienne ou les noces de Laurette, l'auteur dit « adieu à la ménagerie, et pour longtemps », comme il l'écrit à Prosper Chalas. Cet éloignement durera dix-sept ans, jusqu'au succès d'Un Caprice, comédie en un acte donnée au Théâtre-Français le 27 novembre 1847.

Octavo (8 3/4" x 5 1/2") bound in full leather with red label with gilt lettering to spine. (Howes: P372) First edition.Zebulon Montgomery Pike,1779-1813, American explorer, an army officer, born Lamberton (now part of Trenton), N.J. He joined the army (c.1793) and was commissioned second lieutenant in 1799. In 1805 he led an exploring party to search for the source of the Mississippi River; although he mistakenly identified Red Cedar Lake (now Cass Lake) in Minnesota as the source, he was not far wrong. After his return he was sent on an expedition (1806-7) to explore the headwaters of the Arkansas and Red rivers and to reconnoiter Spanish settlements in New Mexico. Pike and his men went up the Arkansas River to the site of Pueblo, Colorado and explored much of the country, sighting the peak that is named after him, Pikes Peak. When he and a small party went to the Rio Grande, they were taken into custody by the Spanish who brought them to Santa Fe and then to Chihuahua and finally released them at the border of the Louisiana Territory. Upon his return, Pike was accused of complicity in the plot of Aaron Burr and James Wilkinson to detach Western territory from the United States, but he was exonerated by the Secretary of War. Pike was promoted to the rank of brigadier general during the War of 1812. He was killed while commanding his troops during the successful assault on York (now Toronto).Condition:Frontispiece and title edges repaired. Lacks other plates and maps, else a very good copy.

        Documents manuscrits sur les enfants abandonnés en 1810 en Dordogne (arrondissement de Nontron : quatre lettres autographes datées et signées (échange épistolaire entre le Préfet de la Dordogne et le Sous-Préfet de Nontron sur le sort des enfants, ainsi qu'un manuscrit de 4 pages in-folio sur la situation des orphelins en Dordogne

      1810 - Enfants trouvés et abandonnés de la Gironde, de la Dordogne et du Périgord au XIX° siècle : A la campagne où ils grandissaient on les appelait « bourdeaux », en référence aux lieux de mauvaise vie, de mauvaises mères, des bordels. Lorsqu'une mère, en abandonnant son enfant, s'attache à envelopper cet abandon d'un épais mystère, l'enfant sera ordinairement illégitime, quelquefois adultérin. Ordinairement la mère a besoin du secret, parce qu'elle veut sauver sa réputation ; si elle n'a de moyens d'existence que dans son travail, elle craint aussi de perdre la position qui le lui procure. Si elle fille encore, elle appréhendera de voir s'évanouir pour elle l'espoir d'un établissement. Mais des personnes aisées, et même riches, recourent aussi à ce moyen de voiler leur faute. Le dépôt dans un hospice leur assure un secret bien plus inviolable qu'un placement en nourrice qui appellerait des confidents.Quelquefois pour mieux s'assurer du secret, on fait porter l'enfant dans un hospice plus ou moins éloignés ; il y a des gens qui font de ce transport un objet habituel de commerce. La Manufacture pouvait se définir comme un rouage essentiel de la direction des hôpitaux de la ville de Bordeaux, comme un lieu de passage ou comme un lieu de vie. C'est à la Manufacture que se situaient les services qui traitaient de la vie des enfants qui pouvaient être regroupés en trois catégories en 1811. Les enfants trouvés dont les parents ne sont pas connus - ce sont les plus nombreux jusqu'en 1852. Les enfants abandonnés nés de parents connus qui d'abord élevés par eux ou par d'autres personnes, en sont délaissés, sans qu'on sache ce que les pères et mères sont devenus. Les subsistants : leur parents sont connus. Ils sont placés provisoirement. Par la suite, certains jeunes ont été classés dans les indigents, orphelins, etc. C'est par le moyen du Tour que le nourrisson faisait son entrée officielle dans la société. « Nous ignorons comment été faite la boîte de l'Hôpital Saint-Louis, mais nous savons mieux qu'elle était celle de l'Hôpital de la manufacture auquel l'Hôpital Saint Louis fut réuni en 1772. Elle se composait d'une barrique vide dont on avait scié dans le sens vertical près de la moitié des douves, de façon à conserver intacte la partie inférieure. La barrique était montée sur un pivot central. Un autre pivot la maintenait dans sa partie supérieure et c'est ainsi qu'elle pouvait tourner facilement sur elle-même. Elle était placée juste derrière la façade principale de la maison et communiquait avec l'extérieur par une large baie circulaire pratiquée dans le mur, à hauteur d'appui. A travers cette ouverture on passait l'enfant que l'on déposait dans la barrique. On faisait ensuite pivoter celle-ci, on sonnait et la soeur venait prendre le petit abandonné dans la sinistre machine. On comprend qu'on ait pu y introduire non seulement le nouveau-né, mais plusieurs enfants, de toute taille, même âgés de douze ans ». « On sonnait et la soeur venait prendre le petit abandonné ». Après avoir été baptisé, l'enfant rejoignait la crèche où des nourrices le prenaient en charge. Car, quelle que soit son origine - il peut venir de départements extérieurs et certaines personnes faisaient office d'intermédiaires - une inscription était portée sur les registres de naissance de la ville de Bordeaux. L'histoire de cet enfant s'arrêtait là. En ce qui concerne les survivants, des petits dossiers regroupent des traces de la vie l'enfant, complétant les informations figurant sur le registre: séjours chez des familles, mariage, ou problèmes divers liés à l'enfance ou à l'adolescence de ces enfants ou très jeunes adultes. Les enfants étaient mis en nourrice dans le nord-Gironde, le sud de la Charente-Inférieure, de la Charente et dans l'est de la Dordogne. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
