        Essai politique sur le royaume de la Nouvelle-Espagne

      F. Schoell, Paris 1811 - 3 volumes: 2 volumes text, 4to., (13 4/8 x 10 inches); and atlas volume, folio (22 x 16 inches). Half-titles in each volume. With the dedication leaf and 4-page dedication to Charles IV. 21 engraved maps, profiles, views, and charts on 19 sheets, four hand- colored (some intermittent pale spotting.) Modern tan calf-backed black marbled paper boards, spines gilt, by Atelier Laurenchet. Provenance: Bookplates of Jay T. Snider, Collection of Historical Americana. First edition, a very rare variant. Yale has a copy of the true first edition with an 1808 title-page and the dedication leaf to Charles IV. The present copy is dated 1811 in the text volumes, but is actually made up of the text as printed in 1808, including the suppressed dedication leaf to Charles IV of Spain. This copy, with the same format and pagination but with the suppressed dedication, shows that the 1811 edition was actually made from the sheets of the 1808 printing, with the dedication removed and the 1811 titles inserted. This edition has generally been overlooked by bibliographers (although Thomas Streeter correctly described the accompanying atlas and surmised this text might exist), the 1809-1814 Tübingen edition generally described as the first. Evidently published in the spring of 1808, the present edition is markedly different in text from that which began to appear the next year. It was suppressed, probably by Humboldt himself. He dedicated the work to Charles IV of Spain, who had allowed him to travel freely through the Spanish colonies. Almost concurrently with the book's publication, Napoleon invaded Spain and deposed Charles, installing his own brother, Joseph Bonaparte, on the Spanish throne. Already under suspicion as a Prussian spy and only allowed to remain in Paris through the intercession of his scientific friends, Humboldt's dedication to the abdicated monarch might have sealed his fate. He may also have had second thoughts about the scope of the work, as the Tübingen edition is greatly enlarged. In 1799 Alexander von Humboldt went to Spain and received from the king permission to visit and make scientific investigations in all the Spanish possessions in Europe, America, with privileges never before granted to any traveller. From 1799 to 1804, Humboldt was accompanied by the French botanist Aimé Bonpland, and together they made observations on geology, geography, zoology, botany and the political and social character of the regions. His exploration of Orinoco River was the first to furnish any positive knowledge of that river. In 1802, in exploring the volcanoes of Ecuador, he ascended heights that had not previously been attained, and on Chimborazo reached the altitude of 19,286 feet. Afterward he made a profile of Mexico from sea to sea--this was the first profile ever given of an entire country. After his return to Paris, and over a period of about two decades, Humboldt undertook to publish the results of his study in the monumental 29-volume "Voyage aux regions equinoxiales du Nouveau Continent". The present work is the third part of this series, consisting of two text volumes and an atlas of maps relating to New Spain, including much of present-day southwestern United States. This comprised the first scientific description of the American Southwest and includes a wealth of new information on California and Texas. The atlas includes plates on volcanoes, land profiles, a map of the southern part of North America, maps of Mexico and many of its parts, and most importantly, Humboldt's two-sheet "Carte Generale du Royaume de la Nouvelle Espagne." This map contained the most up-to-date geographic depiction of Texas, California and the rest of Mexico, and it became the prototype rendering for much of the region for the next several decades. Carl Wheat called the map a "truly magnificent cartographic achievement."

        Ansicht von Prag. Den Mitgliedern des Kunstvereins für Böhmen im Jahre 1857. Pohled na Prahu. .

      Artist: Haushofer Maximilian Joseph ( - 1866) Munich; issued in: Prag; date: ca 1857 1811 - - technic: Colored Lithography; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Tears perfectly restored; - size (in cm): 47 x 65,5; - description: Very decorative and big view of the city of Prag at the river Moldau. In the foreground, some people sitting at the field, in the background the city.In 1618, the famous second defenestration of Prague provoked the Thirty Years' War, a particularly harsh period for Prague and Bohemia. Ferdinand II of Habsburg was deposed, and his place as King of Bohemia taken by Frederick V, Elector Palatine, however the Czech Army under him was crushed in the Battle of White Mountain (1620) not far from the city. Following this in 1621 was an execution of 27 Czech leaders (involved in the uprising) in Old Town Square and the exiling of many others. The city suffered subsequently during the war under Saxon (1631) and Battle of Prague (1648)._Prague began a steady decline which reduced the population from the 60,000 it had had in the years before the war to 20,000. In the second half of the 17th century Prague's population began to grow again. Jews have been in Prague since the end of the 10th century and, by 1708, they accounted for about a quarter of Prague's population; -vita of the artist: After and original painting of Maximilian Joseph Haushofer, born in 1811 in Nymphenburg near Munich. He was a german landscape painter and Professor at the Academie of art in Prag.

        Tableau historique et pittoresque de Paris, depuis les Gaulois jusqu'à nos jours. Par M. ****.

      Paris, H. Nicolle, Le Normant, de l'imprimerie des frères Mame, 1808-1811, - 3 forts volumes in-4, [4]-532, 768 et 872-34 pp., un f. n. ch. d'errata, avec 148 vues, la plupart à l'aquatinte, 34 plans (soit 182 planches hors-texte), et 97 vignettes (en-tête et culs-de-lampe), le tout sous serpentes, demi-chevrette verte à coins, dos lisses cloisonnés et fleuronnés, simple filet doré sur les plats (reliure de l'époque). Bon exemplaire. Edition originale, et premier tirage des gravures. L'ouvrage, particulièrement riche pour les églises et couvents de la ville, est spécialement précieux pour la transition du Paris de l'Ancien Régime au Paris de l'Empire, à travers les suppressions et destructions de la période révolutionnaire. Suivant Barbier, Bins de Saint-Victor eut pour principal collaborateur René Tourlet, mais il dut encore plus aux écrivains qui avaient traité avant lui le même sujet : ses emprunts au Traité de la police de Delamare, à Pigagniol de La Force, à Germain Brice, à Jaillot, à Thiéry, sont innombrables et à peine déguisés. Il n'en reste pas moins que son ouvrage forme le tableau les plus complet des transformations de Paris à travers l'époque révolutionnaire. Tourneux III, 12049. Monglond VII, 926-935.

        Qual incognita forza muove il mio labbro al canto (.).

      S.l., s.d., (vers 1811), - petit in-4, [5] ff. n. ch. (un f. d'ex-dono ; 4 de musique notée), maroquin cerise à long grain, dos lisse muet, encadrement de filets et guirlandes dorés sur les plats, chiffre couronné au centre des plats, pièce de maroquin vert portant le numéro 65 dans un ovale doré contrecollé au centre du plat supérieur, hachuré doré sur les coupes, tranches dorées, le tout dans emboîtage moderne de maroquin bouteille, dos à nerfs (reliure de l'époque). Un morceau de bel canto composé pour l'épouse de Joachim Ier. Exemplaire au chiffre de Caroline Bonaparte-Murat (1782-1839). Olivier, Hermal et Roton cite précisément notre manuscrit (2665-4). Ce petit manuscrit lui fut donné en hommage par la cantatrice Isabella Colbran (1785-1845), prima donna du théâtre San Carlo de Naples de 1811 à 1822, et future épouse de Rossini (en 1822), qui a rédigé et signé le feuillet d'ex-dono précédant le morceau lui-même. Ultérieurement, l'ouvrage fit partie des collections suivantes : 1. Léontine Lippmann, Madame Arman de Caillavet (1844-1910), maîtresse d'Anatole France, avec petite vignette ex-libris à son chiffre LAC contrecollée sur les premières gardes, et fiche de libraire rédigée par France (qui n'avait jamais oublié ses origines familiales ni le métier de son père). La présence de ce manuscrit chez une femme qui n'aimait notoirement pas la musique (comme son amant) interroge : seule la provenance peut avoir constitué un intérêt pour la collectionneuse. 2. Emile Brouwet, et sa collection napoléonienne (il figure au numéro 60 de la vente Brouwet de novembre 1934). 3. Maurice Burrus (1882-1959), industriel et député du Haut-Rhin de 1932 à 1940, avec vignette ex-libris de 1937 contrecollée sur les premières gardes. Bel exemplaire, dans un provenance excessivement rare. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Rare.Monglond VII-col. 478 à 491.Aubin-Louis Millin est né à Paris en 1759. C’est "l’un des plus grands archéologues de la période. Conservateur du Museum des Antiquités à la Bibliothèque Nationale en 1794, membre de l’Institut en 1806 [ ]." (Tulard, Dict. Napoléon, p. 1174)."Très intéressante description, non seulement du Midi de la France, mais de la Bourgogne, du Lyonnais, de l’Angoumois, etc. Cette description pittoresque, archéologique et historique est faite sur les lieux mêmes. [ ] L’atlas [ ] est composé de 83 planches d’un haut intérêt archéologique (vues d’anciens monuments, détails d’ornementations, anciennes peintures, vitraux, costumes, etc., etc.). Embrasse à la fois l’antiquité, le moyen âge et la France moderne. Donne la description de choses maintenant disparues." (Dorbon IV-31230)."Après avoir songé longuement d’un Voyage en Provence, avoir vu, plusieurs années, l’occasion échapper, le Conservateur du Cabinet des Antiquités obtenait enfin de Chaptal, ministre de l’Intérieur, un congé jusqu’à l’automne et la mission spéciale de procurer à la Bibliothèque des manuscrits et des médailles, soit par des acquisitions, soit par des échanges. Millin quitte Paris le 14 avril 1804, pour n’y rentrer que le 17 octobre, six mois et cinq jours après son départ. Winckler, attaché au Cabinet des Antiques, l’accompagnait. Par Dijon, Lyon, la vallée du Rhône, il gagne la Provence, la parcourt en tous sens, pousse jusqu’à Gap, pour revenir par Nîmes, Montpellier, Toulouse, les Pyrénées, Bordeaux, Angoulême, La Rochelle, Poitiers, Tours, Blois, Orléans.La correspondance inédite de Millin nous permet de le suivre presque jour par jour. Il reconnaît lui-même que, çà et là, pour agrémenter ou simplifier son récit, il a pris la liberté d’arranger les choses. "Tout voyageur est un peu menteur", écrira-t-il, le 4 septembre 1806 à Fauris de Saint-Vincens. [ ]Le voyage de Millin a joué son rôle dans la découverte de la Provence.Quand Michelet, en 1833, dans le Tableau de la France, entreprend de peindre la Provence, qu’il n’avait pas encore visitée (mais de la fin mars à la fin avril 1830 il avait vu l’Italie jusqu’à Rome en passant par Florence), le Voyage de Millin est sa source essentielle, et les notes du Tableau en témoignent généreusement.Dans ses Mémoires d’un touriste (1838), Stendhal pille Millin sans vergogne, et, pour mieux dissimuler ses larcins, ne laisse passer aucune occasion de l’injurier. [ ] Mais, à la différence de tel de ses scoliastes, il comprend ce qu’il lit et en tire souvent très bon parti.On sait avec quel soin Millin décrit (t. II, pp. 302-328) la procession de la Fête-Dieu à Aix, à laquelle sera consacré le chant X de Calendal (1867).Enfin le parisien Millin est le précurseur sérieux de ces romanciers dont Edouard Aude, familier de Mistral, disait: "Ils viennent passer quinze jours à Aix et repartent avec une boîte de calissons et un roman dont la scène est en Provence"."

        Historia de gentibus septentrionalibus, .... sic in epitomen redacta, ut non minus clare quam breviter quicquid apud Septentrionales scitu dignum est, complectatur.Antwerp, Christopher Plantin, 1558. 8vo. With Plantin's woodcut device and 135 fine woodcut illustrations by Arnaud Nicolai in text. Early 17th-century gold-tooled calf, with charming centrepiece on both boards.

      Adams O-143; Collijn II, 250; Rooses, Plantin, p. 39; Voet 1811 (variant A). First edition of the abridged version of the first important history of the Nordic countries originally published in Rome in 1555. Magnus describes the history, customs and folklore of Scandinavia, Iceland and Greenland, but also deals with mining and metallurgy, military subjects and natural history with a large part devoted to fish, fishery and whaling. Three "truths" feature heavily in the account: the region is the cradle of warfare, the haunt of demons and the realm of cold. Would-be invaders are warned that ice, snow and cold have produced a hardy people, distinguished by their courage, strength and bravery. As the book would remain an authority for centuries, Magnus's book played an important part in establishing the stereotypes of the Nordic countries as cold and barren, with a rugged coast guarded by maelstroms and sea monsters.The present abridgement was compiled by Cornelius Grapheus, an Antwerp town clerk and, according to the introduction, judged by Plantin to be of interest for publication. The numerous woodcuts are reduced copies of the illustrations in the original 1555-edition.Olaus Magnus (1490-1557) was a Swedish writer and ecclesiastical. Being the younger brother of the Archbishop of Uppsala, he obtained several ecclesiastical preferments and was employed on various diplomatic missions. His Historia de gentibus septentrionalibus was intended as an extended commentary on one of the earliest maps of the Nordic countries, created by Magnus and published in 1539. All of this work was based on a journey to Norrland in 1518-1519 during which Magnus also visited Nidaros (modern Trondheim).With a skilfully executed small restoration to top of spine, some scratches on sides, binding otherwise good. Internally in very good condition, only some small restored tears in the title-page and some occasional, very minor foxing along the extremities.

        Conchology or the Natural History of Shells: containing a new arrangement of the genera and species, illustrated by coloured engravings executed from the natural specimens, and including the latest discoveries.

      London William Miller 1811 - Folio (46 x 28.5 cm), text watermarked "T H" and dated 1818, 61 hand-coloured aquatint plates after drawings by John Clarke, on Whatman paper dated 1820-1824; without half-title. Uncut in original pink boards; rubbed with wear to edges, joints sometime repaired. A lovely, fresh copy with good provenance: Bradley Martin was perhaps the greatest collector of natural history books of the post-war era. His collection was sold at auction by Sothebys in a series of sales some twenty years ago. This is an important work on bivalves and univalves including many Pacific specimens. Twenty-three specimens are from New Holland and Van Diemen's Land; 10 from New Zealand; 15 from the South Seas; 2 from the Pacific Islands; and one from Otaheite. Specimens are also identified as coming from the collections of Mrs. Bligh, Mr. Latham, and the museums of Mr. Bullock and Sir Ashton Lever. The artist, John Clarke, is possibly the same Clarke who worked on John Eyre's famous four-part panorama of Sydney, published in London in 1810. The book was issued (possibly in parts) over a number of years with variations as to make-up of text, date of plates, and identity of printers. Forbes, 425; Nissen ZBI 3134. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Voyages du Chevalier Chardin, en Perse, et autres lieux de l'Orient, enrichis d'un grand nombre de belles figures en taille-douce, représentant les Antiquités et les choses remarquables du pays.

      Le Normant Imprimeur-Libraire Paris 1811 - Folio. With 85 engravings on 64 sheets (9 folding), including 1 map, portrait of Chardin, 18 sheets with double-illustrations and 1 sheet with 4; light waterstain on lower margin of several leaves. Near contemporary half polished calf over marbled boards; a bit rubbed. A very good copy of the atlas from the most desirable edition enhanced with new and larger plates. 'Chardin was a Huguenot who was forced to emigrate to England. He was knighted by Charles II and on his death was buried in Westminster Abbey. His first visit to the East was made in 1665, at the age of twenty-two, when he both gratified a love of travelling and carried on his trade as a dealer in jewels. His more important voyage was made in 1671. His route differed from that usually taken by travellers to the East Indies in that he proceeded by way of the Black Sea and the countries bordering thereon' (Cox I p 249-250). 'Chardin set out for Persia for a second time in August 1671, but on this occasion diverted through Smyrna and Constantinople, and took the Black Sea Route to Caucasia, Mingrelia and Georgia, finally arriving at Esfahan in June 1673. In Georgia he heard of a race of warlike women, the Amazons, who had at some time in the recent past invaded a kingdom to the northwest. He remained in Persia for four years, as he says 'chiefly following the court in its removals, but also making some particular journeys., as well as studying the language.' He apparently knew Esfahan better than Paris, and visited nearly every part of the country. His account of the Persian court and his business transactions with the shah are of considerable interest. In 1677 he proceeded to India, afterwards returning to France by way of the Cape of Good Hope' (Howgego C102); His second and more notable voyage to Persia, is important because it is in the account of this voyage that he describes life in late Safavid Persia' (Ghani p. 71). Includes, among others, lovely views of Tbilisi (Tiflis), Erevan, Ispahan, Persepolis as well as Georgian and Persian costumes, views of lavish palace rooms and the Coronation of Suleyman.

In 1841-43 he furthered his studies in Vienna, where he was a student of Anton Günther (1783-1863). In 1844 he earned his doctorate of theology at Breslau, and in 1845 became a professor of philosophy at the Catholic faculty of theology at the University of Bonn.Knoodt was an ardent follower of the philosophical teachings of Anton Günther, and several years after Günther's death, he published the biographical Anton Günther. Eine Biographie (1881, 2 volumes). This work has been praised as an important source of Catholic church history. Another noted work of Knoodt's was Günther und Clemens Offene Briefe (Günther and Franz Jakob Clemens Open Letters). Both publications were placed on the Index Librorum Prohibitorum (List of Prohibited Books) by the Roman Catholic Church." (source: Wikipedia)

      Philadelphia: Printed for Thomas Dobson, at the Stone Houise, No.41, South Second street, 1811, 8, 299, (1) pp., 1 Taf. "New Books, .. publ. Thomas Dobson" 2 pp., Halbereinband mit alten Deckeln, Rücken erneuert. First American Edition. First neurosurgical book printed in America! John Abernethy (1764-1831), a pupil of Percivall Pott and one of his successors as Surgeon at St. Bartholomew's, wrote one of the first separate monographs on head injuries in the beginning of the 19th century. In addition to outlining the same principles that had been formulated by Pott, Abernethy noted the occurrence of a fixed dilated pupil in a case of epiural hematoma. He felt this was an additional sign to distinguish compression of the brain from concussion, but he did not recognize the lateralizing significance of his observations. This work was published the following year in Philadelphia and is the first book on neurosurgical topic printed in America." Eugene S. Flamm. In: A Hist. of Neurosurgery (Ed. by Samuel H. Greenblatt), p.78 ..."It is difficult to ascertain the exact priority for suggesting carotid ligation. It was first used to control hemorrhage from traumatic laceration of the carotid artery. A particularly vivid surgical description is provide by John Abernethy." Eugene S. Flamm. In: : A Hist. of Neurosurgery (Ed. by Samuel H. Greenblatt), p.267"John Abernethy ligated a lacerated artery in a patient who was gored by an ox. While the patient died, the procedure attracted significant attention. Within a few years, and throughout the 19th century, there were numerous reports of successful cervical carotid artery ligation for the treatment of trauma and intracranial aneurysms."Issam A. Awad.
