        Fine Original Miniature Watercolour Portrait of John Braham.

      [c.1810?] Watercolour on ivory (extreme left edge continued on to card). Head & shoulders, facing forwards, in a handsome oval gilt mount, glazed. Image 11 x 8cm; frame 13.5 x 11cm.An attractive and very well executed head & shoulders portrait of the singer and theatre manager John Braham. The subject gazes confidently directly ahead, his long dark curls parted to one side, with a fur-collared cloak thrown loosely over his shoulders. It is a fine portrait of a youthful Braham, very much in the romantic tradition. Braham, 1774-1856, was one of the leading performers of his day, with an international reputation and a circle of well-connected friends. His life began in humble circumstances: he was born into a poor Jewish family, and after being orphaned at a young age was said to have scratched a living selling pencils on the street. A chance encounter with a musical producer while singing outside London's Great Synagogue steered him towards a singing career, and eventually propelled him to fame and fortune. His connection with Dickens was established early in the writer's career. In January 1836, Dickens penned a positive review of Braham in the Morning Chronicle

        The Vestibule of Eloquence. Original articles, oratorical and poetical, intended as exercises in recitation, at the institution, Bedford Place, Russell Square. By ... professor of the science of practice of elocution. FIRST EDITION.

      Printed, for the author, by J. M'Creery, Black Horse Court ... 1810 [1813] Library stamps on title which is a little browned and with sl. tear to inner margin, not affecting text, repaired with archival tape. Library binding: 20thC plain brown cloth. With library stamps & label.Five copies only on Copac, including BL where it is described as 'a collection of articles and exercises, separately published and variously dated, with a new general titlepage prefixed'. No copy recorded on ABPC. By the radical thinker, political agitator, abolitionist, and anti-war campaigner, John Thelwall, 1764-1834. Thelwall was born in London, the son of a silk merchant. His father died when he was young, and his education was still far from complete when he was compelled to leave school and contribute to the running of the family business. He appears to have shown little desire for a career in the silk trade, and was instead drawn to literature and the arts. The French Revolution took place as he was forging his political identity, and he was immediately drawn towards the politics of upheaval, and railed against social injustice. He became a prominent dissenting voice in the late 18th century, popular with radicals for his passionate and persuasive oration. Thelwall was moved to withdraw from radical politics as a result of Pitt the Younger's clampdown on political dissent, which came in the form of the Treason Act and Seditious Meetings Act, both given royal ascent in 1795. He judiciously chose to curb his more firebrand tendencies, moving away from direct criticism of the government, and instead lecturing on apparently safer topics such as corruption in Ancient Rome. But by 1800, unable to escape the attentions of ever-watchful government loyalists, Thelwall withdrew completely from the public eye, and instead re-invented himself as a Professor of Elocution, establishing, with the help of his wife, a small school in London. This volume, comprised of three separately published works bound together with a new titlepage and contents leaf, forms a prospectus for Thelwall's institution, as well as providing an overview of his educational philosophy, and providing the student with readily available exercises. This is a modified version of the 1811 edition, with the Plan & Objects occupying 15pp (rather than 32pp), and signed Feb. 12th, 1813. It does not include the Terms of Instruction for House Pupils. The second part (168pp, with an 1805 titlepage, The Trident of Albion

        Inventario e Stima della Libreria Riccardi. Manoscritti e Edizioni del Secolo XV

      1 p.l., 225, [3] (blank), xviii, [1] pp. Large 4to, early 20th-cent. half-calf & marbled boards, spine gilt, red leather lettering piece on spine, entirely uncut. Florence: 1810. The collections of early books, manuscripts, and works of art in the Biblioteca Riccardiana of Florence were begun in the 16th century by Riccardo Romolo Riccardi. In the last decades of the 17th century it was significantly enlarged by Francesco Riccardi, partially as a result of the dowry of his wife, Cassandra Capponi. Her father Vincenzio, an erudite and famous man of letters and science closely connected with the circle of Galileo, had left his daughter part of his extensive library of scientific and philosophical texts. The collections were housed in the magnificent palazzo in Via Larga (today Via Cavour), which was purchased from the Medicis in 1659, and is today known as the Palazzo Medici Riccardi. The Riccardi family was unusual in that they allowed the public to use the library throughout most of the 18th century. In the latter part of the 18th century the family's fortunes began their decline and the Riccardis were forced to consider selling the collections. The present catalogue was prepared as an inventory in preparation for the sale by auction starting in July 1811. We learn from the "Manifeste" at the beginning of the catalogue the collections had been appraised and catalogues were soon to be available throughout Europe (Renouard in Paris, Pasquali in Venice, Orell and Dueli in Zurich, Pachoud in Geneva, etc.). After considerable negotiations, the City Council of Florence purchased the collections and palace in 1813. This inventory offers a detailed view of the 3590 early manuscripts, 617 incunabula, 18,257 other printed books, and the family's large and important collections of medals, bronzes, engraved gems, cameos, porcelains, and crystals. The library was appraised at 156,151 lire Toscane. Fine copy. ? Ottino-Fumagalli 2938.

        Autograph letter signed "Spontini" to [Johann Valentin] Teichmann

      Spontini "dominated serious grand opera of the early 19th century in Paris and later in Berlin... Although Fernand Cortez was taken out of the repertory in 1810, that year proved to be the peak of Spontini's career. In February he was appointed directeur de la musique de l'opéra buffa at the Théâtre de l'Impératrice and was able to put his ideas for repertory - concentrating on performances of Cimarosa and Mozart - into practice at the Théâtre Italien. In July he was awarded a newly created prize for the best opera of the decade, for La vestale, and in the same month he married Marie-Cathérine-Céleste Erard, daughter of the pianoforte maker and publisher Jean-Baptiste Erard. After Napoleon's fall from power Spontini withdrew from the public eye for some time, but he greeted the return of the Bourbon kings in August 1814 with Pélage and he was restored for a time to the position at the Théâtre Italien which he had given up in 1812." Anselm Gerhard in Grove Music Online. His last opera, Agnes von Hohenstaufen, was first performed at the Königliches Opernhaus in Berlin on June 12, 1829. After extensive revisions, a second version was performed on December 6, 1837; the present letter most probably refers to a production of the second version of the work. Spontini was the Generalmusikdirektor and leading musician at the court of King Friedrich Wilhelm III in Berlin at this time, where he was welcomed by such prominent intellectuals as E.T.A. Hoffmann. A devotee of the theater, Johann Valentin Teichmann (1791-1860) was in close contact with prominent artists, musicians, and dramatic poets in Berlin. His literary output included a history of the Royal Theatre in Berlin from 1740 to 1840 and a collected edition of letters from writers, such as Goethe and Schiller, who corresponded with the Royal Theatre.. 1 page. Octavo. Dated [Berlin,] December [?]28, 1834. In French (with translation). Spontini asks Teichmann to thank those involved in a production of his opera, Agnes, for which he would also like seats for that evening's performance. "I beg Councillor Teichmann to convey my regards to the choir members, extra choir members, the two choir directors and Mrs. Hochstetter, as well as to several assistants who led the rehearsals of Agnes with zeal and talent, to which Mr. Henning, the music director, contributed the most of all." Slightly worn, browned, foxed and stained; creased at folds and somewhat overall; several edge tears; some show-through; remnants of former mount to verso.

        "VALOR ECCLESIASTICUS: temp. Henr. VIII. auctoritate regia institutus." Volume 1[only, of 6) with three hand coloured folding maps by Arrowsmith) - Printed by George Eyre and Andrew Strahan, by command of His Majesty King George III in Pursuance of an Address of the House of Commons of Great Britain.

      "VALOR ECCLESIASTICUS":A survey of the finances of the church in England, Wales and English controlled parts of Ireland made in 1535 on the orders of Henry VIII. In 1534 King Henry broke with the Pope and by the Act of Supremacy made himself the supreme head of the church in his lands. One of his first actions in his new role was to impose taxes on the clergy. Taxes traditionally paid by clerics to the Pope were now to be given to him, and Henry also decided in late 1534 to create a new annual income tax of 10% on the income from all church lands and offices. To properly assess the new tax a survey of all church property and revenues had to be made. In January 1535 the government appointed commissions throughout the country to conduct the survey. All clergymen, parish priests, heads of monasteries, colleges, hospitals and other institutions under church auspices were commanded to give sworn testimony before their local commissioners as to their income, the lands their establishments owned and the revenues they received from all other sources. The commissioners were to examine documents and account books and from these and the testimony provide a full financial statement for every religious institution. The work of collecting the information was ordered to be completed by 30 May 1535 and the results sent in to the Exchequer in London. The commissioners were unpaid and untrained, mostly local gentry, mayors, magistrates, bishops and sheriffs but they approached the vast task with speed and, by the summer of 1535, the government had in its hands a detailed accounting of the property and wealth of the church. A slip is bound-in explaining that the 'General Introduction & General Map' will be delivered with the 'last volume' (but they are not present). Latin Text. In 1800 an Address of the House of Commons requested that the "preservation, arrangement & more convenient use of Public Records" be facilitated by the reprinting of such records resulting in the publication in 1810 by order of King George III of this volume.

        UNCLE'S PRESENT

      BEWICK. EARLY AMERICAN. (BATTLEDORE) THE UNCLE'S PRESENT, A NEW BATTLEDOOR. Philadelphia: Jacob Johnson (147 Market St.) (on flap), Philadelphia: Sold by Benjamin Warner (on rear cover), no date circa 1810. 3 3/4 x 6 1/2", brown pictorial wrappers, some darkening of covers else near fine. The front and back covers have woodcuts attributed to W. Mason on the front and A. Anderson on rear. The cover heeds "Read and be Wise" and the flap adds "Come, read and learn." The inside is composed entirely of an alphabet. Unlike most battledores, this has an extra leaf inside allowing for one large illustration for each letter of the ABC. The woodcuts are particularly charming depicting various Cries and the text of the cries use words for the particular letter they represent. Rosenbach says "The Cries illustrating the alphabet are a very pretty set, and are probably an early set of Newcastle or York Cries by BEWICK.... The letters J and U are omitted in order to have 24 letters for 24 compartments." Battledores were learning vehicles that served double duty. Inside the classromm they were used for learning the ABC's but at recess they could be used to play a pre-baseball type game of battledore and shuttlecock. This is one of the best examples of a battledore. Welch 1363. Rosenbach 428 (also pictured).

        Sammlung von teils eigenh. Notenhandschriften eigener und fremder Werke. Verschiedene Orte, ca. 1810-1930.

      1810. Zusammen 433 SS. eigene Werke bzw. Werkfragmente, Entwürfe u. dgl. und 1329 SS. Werke bzw. Werkfragmente, Entwürfe u. a. anderer Komponisten in Abschriften. Josef Schneider, geboren 1866 in Bad Reichenhall, kam 1888 als Schulleiter ins niederösterreichische Hautzendorf, wo er unterrichtete und die dortige Musikkapelle leitete. Sein kompositorisches Schaffen umfaßt zahlreiche Märsche, Mazurken, Gavotten und Walzer wie etwa "Der Lenz", "Im Mondenschein", "Maiglöckchen", "Mühlgang", "Kellergeister" und "Prinz Karneval" sowie Hymnen und sakrale Werke. Seinen Ruhestand verbrachte er in Wolkersdorf, wo er als Chormeister den Gesangsverein Wolkersdorf und als Dirigent das Hausorchester leitete und sich besonders mit dem Singspiel auseinandersetzte. So vertonte er etwa Ludwig Anzengrubers "G'wissenswurm" und zahlreiche andere Texte. Der Stadtgemeinde Wolkersdorf ist der Hinweis auf einige weitere Details aus seinem Leben zu danken, etwa auf das heute in und um Wolkersdorf noch bekannte Weihnachtsspiel "Christkindlein kommt" mit Text von Ernestine Berger und auf das Weihelied "Zu Euch Ihr Brüder", das Schneider anläßlich der Enthüllung des Kriegerdenkmals 1923 gleichfalls zu einem Text von Ernestine Berger, der Tochter des langjährigen Bürgermeisters Josef Berger, schuf. - Nach seinem Tode im Jahr 1940 geriet sein Werk kriegsbedingt in Vergessenheit, der hier vorliegende Bestand gestattet somit zumindest eine Übersicht über sein eigenes Schaffen wie über die Musik, mit der er sich im Rahmen seiner Tätigkeit als Kapellmeister und Musiker beschäftigte. Einige seiner Werke wurden von Josef Pleil für das Bläserquintett "Brass for Fun" arrangiert und seither regelmäßig aufgeführt. Die Stadtgemeinde Wolkersdorf benannte ihm zum Gedenken 1976 die verlängerte Krexnerstraße nach ihm. - Detaillierte Verlistung auf Anfrage.

        The uncle's present, a new battledoor.

      Philadelphia: Jacob Johnson 12mo (16.3 cm, 6.4"). [4] ff. (see below).. n.d. [ca. 1810] Dr. R explains the unusual way in which the pages of this publication were put together: There are "[f]our leaves, the first and last pasted down to the covers, the 2 inner ones pasted together making 4 pages in all." These four pages contain 24 letters of the alphabet, each with a "cry" illustrating it, 6 compartments to a page. Dr. R supposed the cries to be those of Newcastle or York, but Welch dissents and says they are London cries. In addition to the interior four pages, the covers are integral to the educational purpose of the publication: The front cover has a heading "Read, and be wise" and below is the alphabet in majuscules, then a center cut of sheep below a tree with children in the distance, with the numerals one to zero below the cut. Dr. R attributes this cut to A. Anderson. The rear cover has the same heading and below is the alphabet in minuscules, then a cut of horses and handlers and a building, with the alphabet in italic minuscules below, and then the numerals again. The flap with "Come, read and learn" on the outside and the title and publication data on the inside is present and integral. It is not uncommon for this fragile flap to have been lost. Publisher's olive printed paper?covered wrappers. Minor chipping to one top margin of rear cover; adhesion of olive paper from a different copy to the underside of the flap! A very few light stains. A very nice copy of this fragile item.

Son auteur, Nicolas Appert, natif de Châlons-en-Champagne, est installé à Massy. Le procédé de conservation des aliments par la chaleur en récipient hermétiquement clos, qu'il a découvert en 1795, est dévoilé, et dans le monde entier, à partir de cette date, des conserveries vont prospérer" (J.-P. Barbier). "The first workable process for canning foods. In 1795 Appert began developing the process under Napoleon's auspices as a way to maintain food on military expeditions. For strategic reasons he was not allowed to publish the secret method until 1810. Appert's method was strictly empirical. Pasteur eventually discovered a scientific explanation for the process and refined its operation" (Garrison-Morton, 2467.1). (Bitting, 13. En français dans le texte, 220. Norman 59. Oberlé, 184.
