        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"." (Monglond).

        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.

        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)

        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.

        Surgical Observations on Injuries of the Head and on miscellaneous Subjects.

      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.

Contemporary diced calf, skillfully rebacked with original spines (gilt extra) laid down. Gift inscription, "R.M. Raiter [?] to Capt. S. Charters Jany 1828," and ownership inscription, "W.

Clean tear in fold of map. Lacks the half titles, otherwise a very good, clean set. A founding work in the fields of political economy and economic geography. Humboldt spent five years in the Spanish dominions of the New World, from 1799 to 1804, and recorded his experiences in a series of works stretching over decades after his return to Europe. One of the first of these was the ESSAI POLITIQUE..., describing northern New Spain, particularly Mexico and the northern provinces, including California and the American Southwest. Howes writes that the work is "of superlative California importance," and Becker calls the volumes "detailed and thorough, containing much data that had never before appeared in print." "This important work...contains the most complete and accurate picture of the natural resources of Mexico then available, and in 1824 was declared by a representative of the Mexican government to have contributed to the reanimation of the active industry of the nation" - Hill. This copy is notable in having an early Mexican provenance, signed "W. Stein, Zacatecas, 1842," and in having the "Carte du Mexique," not called for in the text and usually found only in the separate atlas, bound into the first volume. The large folding map shows all of Mexico and the Southwest, and California. WAGNER-CAMP 7a:2. HOWES H786, "aa." HILL 843. STREETER SALE 196. SABIN 33713. REESE, BEST OF THE WEST 33.

        LETTER FROM COWLES MEAD, SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE MISSISSIPPI TERRITORY, ENCLOSING A COPY OF A PRESENTMENT AGAINST HARRY TOULMIN, JUDGE OF THE SUPERIOR COURT FOR THE WASHINGTON DISTRICT IN SAID TERRITORY, MADE BY THE GRAND JURY OF BALDWIN COUNTY

      Washington: R.C. Weightman, 1811. 7pp. Dbd. Very minimal foxing. One manuscript correction in text. Very good. A letter to Congress from the Mississippi Territory legislature, expressing their disapproval of Harry Toulmin. In 1810 insurrection broke out in West Florida, and leaders of the Tombigbee district (near present-day Mobile) sought to mobilize and occupy nearby Spanish holdings. Toulmin, previously tainted as a "tool" of James Wilkinson for skirting the prosecution of Aaron Burr, exercised the full authority of his position as superior court judge for the territory and prevented the use of force against the Spanish. Though he managed to prevent an armed conflict, his pacific actions made him extremely unpopular with his constituency, and many actively sought his removal. Toulmin survived their accusations and retained his post until 1819. Rare, OCLC locating only three copies. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 24150. OCLC 22194579. DAB XVIII, p.602.
