        Le nouveau testament de notre seigneur Jésus-Christ... seconde édition Américaine.

      Early American edition of the translation by eminent Swiss Protestant Jean Frédéric Ostervald, based on a Paris edition and following 1811 and 1814 U.S. printings.

      Hamburg, Friedrich Perthes, 1810-1811. - Vollständiges Exemplar der Hamburger literarisch-wissenschaftlichen Monatsschrift, "die in Deutschland ein großes Echo fand. Zu den Beiträgern gehörten Jean Paul, die Grafen Stolberg, Fouqué und vor allem Matthias Claudius, dessen älteste Tochter Perthes geheiratet hatte . Der Herausgeber (Perthes) war sich des Wagnisses einer solchen Zeitschrift, die schon durch den Titel eine vaterländische Gesinnung verriet, wohl bewußt, und die französische Herrschaft in Hamburg zwang ihn dann in der Tat, das Unternehmen mit dem 1. Heft des zweiten Jahrgangs einzustellen" (Kayser). "Interessant ist die Zeitschrift als Dokument einer nun überall in Deutschland beginnenden Besinnung auf 'deutsche' Eigentümlichkeiten und einer geistigen Neuorientierung . Die Zeitschrift gehört zu den wenigen in Hamburg publizierten Schriften, die eine gewisse Nähe zur Romantik hatten" (Böning). Sie enthält u. a.: Jean Paul: Nachdämmerung für Deutschland (Die geistige Gährung des deutschen Chaos; Bürgerliche Ehrenlegion oder Volksadel; Ueber die Furcht künftiger Wissenschaftsbarbarey); Ph. C. Marheinecke: Über den wahren Charakter eines protestantischen Geistlichen; A. Heeren: Ueber die Mittel zur Erhaltung der Nationalität besiegter Völker; K. D. Hüllmann: Zwei Reden (Preußen werde Großdeutschland; Volk und Sprache müssen Deutschland verewigen); N. H. Julius: Betrachtungen über Amerika; H. Lichtenstein: Geschichte der Entdeckung des Vorgebirges der guten Hoffnung; Fr. Saalfeld: Über die politische und merkantilische Wichtigkeit der Hansestädte; Fr.

        Sense and Sensibility: A Novel in Three Volumes By a Lady.

      London T. Egerton 1811 - First edition, 3 volumes, 12mo., complete with all half-titles, with blanks N8 in volume 2 and blank O8 in volume 3, some light spotting, more so to a few gatherings, bound to style in modern calf-backed blue boards, vellum tips, handsomely presented in a fine morocco-backed solander box, a very good set. A rare opportunity to obtain a copy with all the half-titles. Most examples which come to market nowadays are defective on this account. This copy with additional interest as each volume bears the signature of a contemporary female reader. The print run of Sense is unknown, however, it was certainly small: "Probably it consisted of only 1000 copies or even less, and this would account for the fact that Sense and Sensibility is so much the rarest of the novels at the present day." (Keynes). It is now commonly accepted that only 750 copies were printed. Originally a sketch written in 1795 in the form of letters and titled Elinor and Marianne (representing "sense" and "sensibility"), the novel was revised in 1797 and 1798 at Steventon and again in 1809 and 1810, the first year of Jane Austen's residence at Chawton. Thomas Egerton undertook publication on a commission basis, and Jane Austen "'actually made a reserve from her very moderate income to meet the expected loss". The price of the new novel was 15 shillings in boards, and advertisements first appeared for it on 30 October 1811. When it sold out in less than two years, Jane wrote delightedly to her brother Francis (3 July 1813): "You will be glad to hear that every copy of Sense and Sensibility is sold and that it has brought me £140 beside the copyright, if that should ever be of any value."

        [Paper Doll Book]: Ellen, or The Naughty Girl Reclaimed, A Story, Exemplified in a Series of Figures

      London: Printed for S. and J. Fuller, at the Temple of Fancy, Rathbone Place. 1811. Third edition, in a printed slipcase dated 1824. Stitched gray printed paperwrappers. With all nine cut-out costumed handcolored figures, the moveable head, and three hats (of five) laid in. Text in verse. Advertisements for other publications on rear wrap and slipcase. Corner of page 5 missing with no loss of text. Inscribed from an aunt to a niece on blank front endpaper. Slipcase neatly repaired along two sides with old hand-stitching; the moveable head shows some wear at the neck; the cut-outs are fresh and brightly colored. Very good. The story of an ill-tempered child who falls in with gypsies, but finally returns to her family.According to Andrew White Tuer in his book Pages and Pictures from Forgotten Children Books (London: 1898-9), this book was a favorite of Queen Victoria when she was a child. It "formed one of a series of a dozen or more under different titles. The prettily tinted cut-out illustrations were on cardboard, separate from the text. A moveable head, which, through much handling soon shewed signs of wear, fitted into a groove behind the neck, and completed one of the pictures at a time. These little book-toys, which ran into many editions and were copied by German and French publishers..." Although incomplete, much nicer and more complete than usually found. .

        Broadside, begins: Sabed: que ha llegado á nuestras manos un proclama del rebelde Cura de Dolores que se titula: 'Manifiesto, que el Señor Don Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla::::,, [sic] haze al Pueblo.

      Mexico: no publisher/printer Folio (43.4 cm; 17.125"). [1] p.. 26 January 1811 Approximately two months prior to Father Hidalgo's capture by the Royal Forces, the Holy Office issued this decree condemning a publication of the Father of Mexican Independence as seditious, Lutheran, and anti-Catholic. Other writings circulating in manuscript are also condemned: One beginning, "Hemos llegado a la epoca" and ending, "De una Patriota de Lagos" and another beginning, "Es posible. Americanos!" and ending, "será gratificado con quinientos pesos." Copies of each were burned by the public executioner and all citizens are warned of the penalties — excommunication and fines — for owning or reading these writings, or failing to denounce those who do. Printed on two sheets precisely glued together to form a seamless whole, in double-column format and with the woodcut seal of the Inquisition in the lower right corner of the lower edge. Garritz located only the copy in the Biblioteca Nacional and WorldCat locates only seven U.S. institutions holding copies. Old folds; a few small wormholes touching or costing a very few letters and one larger hole costing five letters, but not impeding reading sense. Slight discoloration along the area where the two sheets are pasted together and at points on vertical fold.

        Autograph sketchleaf to op. 117, "König Stephan" ("Ungarns erster Wohltäter").

      [Teplitz, 1811]. - 2 pages in ink and pencil on 16-stave paper (322 x 234 mm), with two folds. Formerly sewn on the left margin, leaving three punched holes. Accompanied by two autograph letters signed from Friedrich Wilhelm Künzel in Leipzig to Fred M. Steele of Chicago, dated July 16th, 1886, discussing the acquisition and certifying the authenticity of the present leaf. A densely-used two-sided autograph sketchleaf containing music to opus 117, "König Stephan" or "Ungarns erster Wohltäter" ("Hungary's first Benefactor"), the front showing, among other motifs, the opening cello/bassoon line for the beginning of the first movement chorus, "Ruhend von seinen Thaten" (Andante maestoso e con moto, C major), and the verso with material from the end of the movement, all over with various freely written passages in ink and pencil, mostly on single staves, some with text underneath, containing many holograph corrections and instances where ink is written over pencil. - The present sketchleaf, apparently hitherto unknown to scholarship, belongs to a book of sketches that Beethoven used while writing his stage music "König Stephan" in 1811. Beethoven created his own book from various paper on hand and used it while at the spa in Teplitz from late 1810 into mid 1811. He finished "König Stephan" between 20 August and mid-September 1811. The sketches are of the first chorus (after the overture). The musical play was commissioned for the opening of the new theatre in Pest along with "The Ruins of Athens". First performed on 9 February 1812, it was published as op. 117. King Stephen I founded Hungary in 1000. Emperor Francis I of Austria commissioned the new theatre, and Beethoven was chosed as the composer to honour the occasion of the opening. The Austrian Emperor was honouring Hungary's loyalty, thus the subject matter on a text by August von Kotzebue. - The Beethoven-Haus in Bonn holds four other sketches from this sketchbook (viewable in their digital online archive, as entries HCB Bsk 2/50, 3/51, 4/52, and Mh 81), all of which share the same three holes punched on the left-side margin of the present sketch. We would like to thank Dr. Carmelo Comberiati, professor of Music History at Manhattanville College, for his assistance in cataloguing this lot. - Provenance: Friedrich Wilhelm Künzel, Leipzig, before 1886; Collection of Fred M. Steele, Chicago, purchased from the above, 1886. Offered in the "Collection of Important Autographs in the estate of Mrs. Ella P. Steele, widow of Mr. Fred M. Steele" (Philadelphia, 1918). Acquired from the purchaser's descendants, last located in Greenwich, CT. For an in-depth discussion of the pages this sketch belongs to, see Douglas Johnson, Alan Tyson and Robert Winter, "The Beethoven Sketchbooks", p. 201-206. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      Boston: Les Libraires Associés 12mo (18 cm, 7"). 379, [1] pp., [2 (advertisements)] ff.. 1811 1810 was the year that saw the first printing of a complete Testament in French in the U.S.— a Catholic one was then issued in Boston for use among French Canadians and French émigrés. This edition came out the following year, and is both the second French N.T. to have been printed in the U.S. and the first Protestant one. Provenance: 19th-century ownership stamp of "Hiram Bell" at top of title-page. Evidence of Readership: A few lines from Gray's "Elegy written in a Country Churchyard" are pencilled in English on a front blank ("Full many a flower is born to blush unseen . . ."); and "pour passer le temps" is pencilled in under the list showing the testament's order of books on the title-page verso! Acid-stained sheep, flat spine with gilt rules and a burgundy leather title label, gilt-lettered; lightly rubbed, dry with some cracking. Inside, scattered spots of light browning. Inkstain(?) to advertisement and rear blank leaves, not hindering reading. A nice copy.

        Broadside, begins: "Americanos. El orden politico del otro hemisferio ha reducido la España á ser victima de la perfidio y ooresion y este pueblo generoso conducido de uno en otro infortunio va ya á ser borrado del catalogo de las naciones ... ".

      Caracas: Gallagher y Lamb Folio (31 cm; 12.25"). 1 p.. July, 1811 July 5, 1811, is Venezuela's official independence day, following more than a year of wrangling and temporary measures following the deposing of the Captain General on 20 April 1810 and the establishment of a caretaker government that already styled itself as "independent" despite paying lip service to loyalty to Ferdinand VII. This document dates from immediately after July 5th, as internal evidence shows. Here the Junta Suprema explains what it sees to be the political reality of Spain's dissolution into non-nationhood under Napoleon and thereby justifies "Venezuela [having] entered now, Americanos, into the number of free nations of the Americas." Very Rare: This broadside was unknown to Medina. Grases located only the copies in the Public Record Office (London) and the Archivo de Indias (Seville). Searches of NUC, WorldCat, COPAC, and CCILA fail to find any copy at all. Further, no copies were found when searching the OPACs of the national libraries of Venezuela, Colombia, Spain, France, and England: Evidently, this is the third known copy. As issued. Worming in foremargin; repaired. Pencilling in margins. A very good copy.

        Woburn Sheepshearing. Dedicated by Permission to His Grace the Duke of Bedford. By His Grace's most obedient and very humble, George Garrard

      London: G. Garrard, 1811. Some ageing otherwise good.. Original coloured aquatint, stipple, etching and engraving; 540 x 800 mm., in the original gilt frame with the key border at base of aquatint folded under. The rare coloured version of this most interesting image of the annual sheep shearing festival held by the Duke of Bedford at Woburn Abbey. This great agricultural show was started by Frances Russell (1763-1802) who established a model farm at Woburn with 'every convenience that could be desired for the breeding of cattle and experiments in farming'. This included valuable experiments upon the respective merits of the various breeds of sheep. The sheep shearing exhibitions lasted for days and the whole English agricultural world was invited to this splendid event and the week concluded with banquets for the Duke's numerous guests staying at Woburn Abbey. The scene shows an enormous crowd of noblemen, gentlemen, farmers, and agricultural labourers inspecting the numerous sheep and cattle whilst a sheep shearing contest is taking place in a pen on the right.This contest is being judged by an eminent circle including (as noted in the key): Arthur Young, Secretary to the Board of Agriculture, Sir John Sinclair, President of the Board of Agriculture, Sir Joseph Banks, Thomas Coke M.P., and others including Sir Humphry Davy.Sir Joseph Banks wearing a sash is shown in the middle of the judging panel in the lower left of the image, seated and holding a cane. The caption describes this scene "... two men shearing for a Prize in the foreground in the presence of the leading Members of the Board of Agriculture". Sir Joseph was the key figure in breeding merino sheep and in the introduction of this species into Australia. Not only was he the leading advocate for the establishment of the merino breed of sheep in England, he was in charge of the Royal flock of 500 sheep given to King George 111 by the Spanish Court. It is recorded that he sold off his own sheep on the Oaklands Estate, Lincolnshire to devote himself to the care and breeding of the merino and declared "merino sheep will in time be procured with carcasses perfectly fashionable and wool as perfectly fine..."The Australian sheep industry began when John Macarthur imported three rams and five ewes in 1797 on the advice of Sir Joseph.The artist of this fine image was George Garrard ARA (1760-1826), a pupil of the Cumbrian sporting artist Sawrey Gilpin. He specialised in depicting the improved breeds of farm animals of the Agricultural Revolution and was instrumental in the passing of a bill to secure copyright on sculptured and cast works of art. The caption states that this fine and large image is " stipple and outline etched by M.N. Bate, figures and landscape by J.C. Stadler, the whole touched and arranged by the original painter".

        [CONSECUTIVE RUN OF EARLY LOUISIANA LAWS FOR THE FIRST SIX SESSIONS OF THE TERRITORIAL LEGISLATURE, 1806 - 1811]

      New Orleans, 1811. Antique-style half calf and marbled boards, leather label. Small ink library stamp to titlepages, embossed blind-stamp to two titlepages, occasional ink ownership signature, a couple of small paper repairs. Overall a very good set. A very desirable run of the session laws issued by the Orleans Territorial Legislature (with the volumes for the first and second session of each of the three legislatures present) between its formation, when it succeded the unelected Legislative Council, to the last session, after which Louisiana achieved statehood and ceased to be a Territory in 1812. All volumes printed in English and French on facing pages. The first imprint is the exceedingly rare 1806 first edition of the first session laws of the first legislature, which was subsequently reprinted the next year. It is almost never seen in the marketplace. In fact, all of these volumes are quite rare both institutionally and in the marketplace. In almost forty years, we've only ever offered three of the six imprints, not including the 1806 edition. The imprints included here are as follows: 1) BY AUTHORITY.

        Sermon que en el Aniversario Solemne de Gracias a Maria Santisima de los Remedios, celebrado en esta Santa Iglesia Catedral el Dia 30 de Octubre de 1811 por la Victoria del Monte de las Cruces ... and Noticias para la Historia de Nuestra Senora de los Remedios ...

      Mexico: Arizpe, 1811and 1812. First edition. 4to, 269 pp with 1 engraving: two works with continuous pagination but separate title pages. Monte de las Cruces was the highwater mark of Hidalgo's revolt against the Spanish Viceregal regime: Mexico City lay before him, but against the judgement of Allende he withdrew and probably lost the golden opportunity to bring the revolution to victory. This sermon is obviously from the royalist side and occupies 59 pp of text. Of the remainder, Sabin quotes Stevens (presumably the Catalogue of American Books in the British Museum, 1866): "An extraordinary volume of considerable interest. According to the pious author, Our Lady of Mexico ... seems not only to have taken an active interest in the spiritual welfare of the faithful, but seems to have done her best to thwart the schemes of the rebels and republicans in the various provinces of Mexico. She set her face firmly against the spirit of Mexican independence, and became quite a politician, but always attached to the royal party. The pious political fraud s contained in this volume must ever give it a prominent place among the books relating to the history of the Mexican Revolution." The plate is a depiction of strange celestial portents that occurred during this time. Contemporary full calf binding, with gilt devices on covers and spine, gilt title and florons also on spine. Very clean and nice copy. Scarce title.

I Lory, padre e figlio, Mathias Gabriel Lory, furono i primi a stampare direttamente a colori, tecnica che consentì loro di trasporre nell'incisione le stesse atmosfere e bellezze del paesaggio reale.

Leder berieben, Ecken etwas bestoßen Erste Ausgabe (Goedeke VI,118,20). – Teils etwas stockfleckig. Modernes Exlibris a.d. Innendeckel. Rosafarbene Vorsätze. A.d. weißen Vorsatz ein zwölfzeiliger Eintrag, datiert „Prag am 15ten Okt. 1813“, unterschrieben „CARL und AUGUSTE V.MILTITZ“, a.d. Titelrückseite zeitgenöss. Stempel „Tetschner Bibliothek“ (vgl. No.1940). Ein bemerkenswertes Exemplar. Im ersten Brief FOUQUÉs an den späteren engen Freund schreibt er u.a.: „Ausserdem aber möchte ich Ihren Blick noch ganz besonders auf meine vaterländischen Schauspiele richten, die Ostern vorigen Jahres in Berlin bei HITZIG erschienen. Dort finden Sie meine Persönlichkeit recht aus dem Innersten ausgesprochen.“ (6.Febr.1812; zit. nach: O.E.Schmidt, Fouqué, Apel, Miltitz, Leipzig 1908, S.60). Aus dem Briefwechsel entwickelte sich eine intensive, wechelseitig anregende Freundschaft; MILTITZ vertonte Gedichte FOUQUÉs (u.a. in Dramatische Dichtungen, 1812) und trug Texte zu dessen Wunderbuch (1816) und verschiedenen Almanachen bei. Wie FOUQUÉ stammte „der männlich gerade“ (Arno Schmidt, Fouqué, S.196) CARL BORROMÄUS V. MILTITZ aus einer Familie mit militärischer Tradition. Bis 1810 diente er als Offizier in der sächs. Armee, verließ dann den Dienst und lebte mit seiner Frau AUGUSTE auf Burg Scharfenberg bei Meißen und 1813 in Dresden. Nach dem Sieg der Franzosen bei Groß-Görschen (2.Mai 1813) brachte MILTITZ seine Frau nach Karslbad in Böhmen in Sicherheit. „Er selbst fand ein Asyl im Schlosse Tetschen beim Grafen THUN , dessen Frau [THERESE] . mit AUGUSTE . in Wien . erzogen worden war.“ (O.E.Schmidt S.42). MILTITZ ging im Oktober nach Prag, wo er sich am 22. den österreichischen Truppen anschloss. Eine Woche zuvor, am Vorabend der „Völkerschlacht bei Leipzig“ (16. – 19.Okt. 1813) versah er das vorliegende Buch mit einer langen Widmung auch im Namen seiner Frau, „beyde FOUQUÉs Freunde“, und schenkte es der Gastgeberin, „ihnen geistig verwandt und lassen Sie sich von diesen dreyen, wie von Genien, umflügeln.“ [Attributes: Hard Cover]
