        La Chine en Minature. 6 vols. in 3

      1811. BRETON DE LA MARTINIÈRE, Jean Baptiste Joseph. La Chine en Miniature, ou choix de costumes, arts et métiers de cet empire, représentés par 74 (sic) gravures, la plupart d'après les originaux inédits du cabinet de feu M. Bertin, ministre; accompagnés de notices explicatives, historiques et littéraires. Six volumes in three. Illustrated with 20 + 21 + 19 + 20 + 13 + 15 plates, for a total of 108, all with contemporary hand-colouring. 18mo., 126 x 82 mm, bound in contemporary red straight-grained French morocco in the style of Bozerian: outer borders composed of gilt grape and vine rolls, smooth spines gilt à pointillé, marbled endpapers, a.e.g. Paris: Nepveu, 1811 [-1812]. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition, a very fine hand-coloured copy in contemporary French red morocco, gilt extra. This work on Chinese art and costume "originated in the activities of Bertin, secretary of State, 1762-1780, who had responsibility for the Compagnie des Indes and French Jesuits in Peking. He was a generous supporter of the Jesuits and got two Chinese converts to take science courses in France. On return to China, they produced some 400 drawings of arts and crafts, thus moving outside the usual narrow missionary interests" (Lust). Breton de la Martinière's work is much sought after on account of the quantity and quality of its beautiful illustrations. This is one of the rare copies with all the plates hand-coloured. The 108 hand-coloured plates vibrantly record the broad range of Chinese society, especially tradesmen. Particularly interesting are the numerous depictions of itinerant salesmen and craftsmen with ingenious methods of transporting their inventories and machinery. The industrious author produced similar tours of Russia, Egypt & Syria, Spain & Portugal, and Japan. Plate IX in vol. 4 with paper defect, but overall in outstanding condition. PROVENANCE: Robert Mackenzie Waggaman, with his nineteenth-century armorial bookplate in each volume (per fesse three fleurs de-lis; in crest a demi-hippogrif rampant, couped, and maned, with motto: "Je m'élève audessus de l'adversité"). Colas 433. Cordier 65. Lipperheide 1524. Brunet I, 1225-1226. Hiler 113. Lust 1243 (English edition).

        Promenade ou itinéraire des jardins d'Ermenoville

      1811. GIRARDIN, Louis Stanislas Cecile Xavier, Comte de. Promenade ou Itinéraire des Jardins d'Ermenonville. [4], 63, [1] pp. Illustrated with 25 aquatint plates (numbered 0-24) by and after Mérigot fils, 2 engraved plates of music. 8vo., 224 x 147 mm, bound in original publisher's pink speckled paper over boards. Paris: Mérigot, Brunot-Labbe, Le Normant, Richard, 1811. |~||~||~||~||~| Second Edition of the essential work on the French jardin anglais. It describes one of the earliest and finest examples of the English garden in France. The garden at Ermenonville was planned by Count Louis-René Girardin, friend and final patron to Jean-Jacques Rousseau. Girardin's master plan, drawn in part from Rousseau's novels and idealistic philosophy, forms the central inspiration of the garden's aesthetic design. Rousseau's tomb, in fact, is prominently situated on the man-made island in the lake at Ermenonville. Louis-René Girardin was probably assisted in the design by the painter Hubert Robert. Created with care and craft, the garden came to resemble a natural environment, almost a wilderness, appearing untouched by any human intervention. The text of this work is by Louis-René's son; the aquatint plates are by Mérigot fils. These aquatint plates reveal Girardin's love of diverse vistas that capture the painterly effects achieved by great landscape painters such as Claude, Rosa, Ruysdael, and Van Goyen. Enhancing the elegiac mood of these views were the altars and monuments, among these the tomb of Rousseau on the L'Isle des Peupliers designed by Hubert Robert (plates 9 &10). The Rustic Temple, Monuments of Old Loves, and other sites reproduced by Mérigot refer to scenic details in Rousseau's La Nouvelle Héloïse. Fine copy. Hunt 695. Cohen-De Ricci 439. Sander 806. Lewine 213. D. Wiebensen, The Picturesque Garden in France (Princeton: 1978), 80-85.

        Autographa

      [Weimar: 1811]. Quarto broadsheet (257 x 197 mm.), printed on both sides. Laid paper, the edge of a a flower? watermark visible. Drop-title in cursive type, request for contributions in smaller italic, catalogue printed in four columns in roman type. signed and dated by goethe, ?"J W v Goethe,?" ?"Weimar d.[?] 20. dez. 1811.?" in fine condition. Housed in a modern cloth portfolio. Provenance: Salman Schocken (Hauswedell sale 175, 16 June 1970): to Bernard Breslauer (sale, Christie?'s New York, Part I, March 21, 2005, lot 80).*** first edition of goethe's checklist of writers and other creative figures from his collection of literary, scientific, musical, artistic and historical autographs. One of the rarest of Goethe?'s printed works, the list was printed in 300 copies and distributed privately by the collector himself among his friends and acquaintances. While not technically a desiderata list (as it is sometimes described), the Autographa concludes with a succinct request for contributions ?- ?"Mit Bitte um gefällige Beiträge?" ?- presumably the main purpose of the catalogue. Among Goethe?'s many collections, which included prints, drawings, paintings, objets d?'art including maiolica, objets de l?'antiquité including coins and medallions, scientific objects, minerals, fossils, and plants, was his collection of autographs. He approached all of his collections systematically, whether artistic, historical, or scientific, gathering together and organizing the relevant objects in a rational and historically accurate manner that shed further light on each individual object while elucidating the whole. His aim as a collector of natural history and art was nothing less than to grasp ?"das Ganze der Natur?" and ?"das Ganze der Kunst,?" the entirety of nature and of art. By the end of his life Goethe had accumulated over 50,000 objects, all acquired, he stated, in a rational, deliberate manner ?"`for the purpose of my own consequential education?'?" (Grave pp. 183-4). Goethe was one of the first modern collectors of European autographs. His autograph collection was acquired as methodically as his other collections, although its raison d?'être differed somewhat. On December 4, 1811, while this list was in proof stage, Goethe wrote to Johann August Barth that the exclusive purpose of his autograph collection was to keep the memory of great men present in his mind through the immediacy of these documents: ?"Meine Sammlung hat den reinen Zweck das Andenken solcher Männer durch unmittelbare Documente bey mir den Meinigen zu erhalten.?" On May 10, 1812, thanking Friedrich Heinrich Jacobi for sending him some autographs, Goethe stated even more explicitly the reason for his autograph collecting: ?"Die übersandten Blätter sind mir von unendlichen Werth; denn da mir die sinnliche Anschauung durchaus unentbehrlich ist so werden mir vorzügliche Menschen durch ihre Handschrift auf eine magische Weise vergegenwärtigt. Solche Documente ihres Daseyns sind mir, wo nicht eben so lieb, als ein Portrait, doch gewiß als ein wünschenswerthes Supplement oder Surrogat desselben.?" (?"The documents you sent are for me of infinite value, since, sensual contemplation [grasping the world through the senses] being utterly indispensable to me, it is through their handwriting that excellent men magically come to life for me. I find such documentation [evidence] of their existence, though less welcome than a portrait, still a desirable supplement or surrogate?" (Goethe Briefe, online edition, www.zeno.org/Literatur/M/Goethe,+Johann+Wolfgang/Briefe; cataloguer?'s translations). On November 25, 1811, Goethe sent his manuscript list to Carl Bertuch, with precise instructions that it be printed on a quarto sheet in four columns, etc., and with the surprising request that, should the list be too long, Bertuch eliminate some of the lesser-known names. It is not clear whether any names were deleted, but on December 1st Goethe returned the first proof with corrections, requesting one more proof, and asking that the 300 copies be printed on the same fine paper, to make the sheets both easy to write on and easy to insert in an envelope with a letter. Still another proof was required, for on December 5th Goethe returned the second proof, apologizing for having moved some names around, and requesting a final proof ?- ?"For a little leaf which will travel so far, one can afford some extra trouble?" (?"Bey einem Blättchen, das so weit umher reisen soll, gibt man sich billig einige Mühe?"). Goethe gave the go-ahead to print on Dec. 5, adding the perfectionist?'s slightly embarassed nag ?- ?"That the copies must be sufficiently dried [before cutting and sending them] to avoid offsetting of the ink I need hardly remind you?" (Daß sie vorher genugsam abtrocknen, um nicht abzufärben, darf ich wohl kaum erinnern?"). Of the 495 figures in Goethe?'s list most were his contemporaries. In strict alphabetical order, mixing poets, writers, philosophers, philologists, theologians, composers and scientists, they include d'Alembert, Arnim, Bernoulli, ?"Bethoven?" [sic], Boerhaave, Campe, Carpzov, Cramer, Denon, Ebert, Fichte, Frederick the Great, Hamilton, Herder, Humboldt, Jenner, Kleist, Klopstock, Lavater, Leibniz, Lessing, Mendelssohn, Musschenbroeck, Niebuhr, Schelling, Schiller, Schlegel, Mme de Staël, Tischbein, Uffenbach, Wieland, Winckelmann, and others. Intermingled with these moderns are historical figures such as Aretino, Budé, Buxdorf, Calvin, Cellarius, Colbert, Melanchthon, Merian, Oporinus and Ricci. the catalogue thus succinctly reflects the universal interests of germany's greatest poet.

        A scarce American printing of a British memorial tribute to George Washington

      "Engraved broadside, GENERAL WASHINGTON (London: printed by W. S. Blake, [1800], Philadelphia: reprinted by J. Maxwell, 1811) 13"" x 18.5"", featuring an emblematic headpiece of a rock with Washington's name emblazoned upon it amidst the stormy sea. Fold separations and tears (which are mostly clear of engraving and text) repaired on verso, else very good. A wonderful tribute to George Washington, which reads in small part: ""This great and good man died at his seat in the State of Virginia, on the 15th day of December 1799, in the 68th year of his age, after an illness of only four-and-twenty hours. This illustrious General and Politician was characterized by such rare endowments, and such fortunate temperament, that every action of his life was equally exempted from vice and from weakness. The powers of his mind, and the disposition so his heart, were admirably suited to each other. It was the union of the most consummate prudence with the most perfect moderation. His views, though large and liberal, were never extravagant. His virtues, through comprehensive and beneficent, were discriminating, judicious and practical. His character had nothing in it to dazzle by wildness, and surprize [sic] by eccentricity; it was of a higher order of moral beauty; in included every thing great and elevated, had no false and tinsel ornaments, and was incapable of change from the varying accidents of manners, of opinions and times ..."" Originally printed in London by W. S. Blake, the motif at the top was designed by Scottish engraver George Murray (d. 1823). Most likely engraved and destined for export to America, it was reprinted by James Maxwell in Philadelphia after George Murray emigrated to America circa 1810. In 1813, Murray joined the firm of Murray, Draper, Fairman & Co. which produced some of the finest engraved banknotes of the period. (John T. Scharf, History of Philadelphia: 1609-1884, 1884, p. 1057)"

        Message from the President of the U. States, transmitting a report of the Secretary of the Treasury, on the Execution of the Act Providing for the Survey of the Coast of the U. States. February 4th, 1811

      Washington City: Printed by R.C. Weightman, by order of the Senate United States, 1811. First edition. Removed. Removed from a larger volume else a very good copy with offsetting on a few leaves, shallow marginal chip to top edge of 2nd plate. 8vo. Illus. with 2 b/w plates. The report consists of a covering letter from the Secretary, explaining that the original planning, begun in 1807, under the presidency of Thomas Jefferson, was suspended due to foreign relations concerns, but that F. R. Hassler, Professor of Mathematics, was still ready to begin; Gallatin's letter of March 25th, 1807, explaining the survey and asking for advice; detailed responses to that letter from the seven addressees, including a rather technical response by James Madison, then a Committee member, suggesting that the triangulation method might not work, and proposing that a "stasimetric" mode be used; and further correspondence with the chief of the group, Robert Patterson, which included a list of instruments that were required, provided by F. R. Hassler. Hassler finally sailed for Europe in late August of 1811 to purchase the needed instruments but the ensuing War of 1812 left him stranded for the next three years. Though he did finally begin work in 1816, Congress transferred the project to the military which did little, and the project was not fully resumed until 1833 when Hassler was reappointed superintentant of the survey. The two plates, which contain three figures, relate to Patterson's explication of the methods to be used. Rink lists only three copies: Brown, LOC, AAS; OCLC shows two more UVA, Lib. Co. Phila.

        The Holy Bible, translated from the Latin Vulgate the Old Testament, first published by the English College at Doway, A D 1609, and the New Testament, first published by the English College at Rhemes, A D 1582; with annotations, references, and an historical and chronological index

      Manchester: Oswald Syers Folio (36.2 cm, 14.4"). [approx. 702] ff., lacking title–page, but having both cancel and cancelland of N.T. L2 present; (several signatures incorrectly signed); 19 plts. (1 excised & laid in).. 1811–13 Scarce sole edition. Sold without direct episcopal sanction, this folio edition of the Douai– Rheims version was issued in rivalry with the better-known Haydock rendition and is the artefact of a sad story: The Catholic priests of Manchester, who mistakenly believed that Haydock's effort to print a Douai–Rheims Bible had been abandoned after his move from that city to Dublin, therefore encouraged local printer Syers to produce his own edition — only to restore their patronage to Haydock following the discovery of their error, leaving poor Syers in the lurch. The text generally follows the Challoner–Rheims revision, although the notes are collected from various sources. The volume is illustrated with two frontispieces and 17 plates engraved by J. Bottomley, Symns and Mitchell, and others after paintings by Westall, Raphael, Reynolds, et al. Issued in parts in a small print run, this Bible is now uncommon, and => its plates are lovely. WorldCat locates only five copies in U.S. libraries. Contemporary acid-stained calf rebacked with mottled calf, spine with gilt-stamped leather title-label, gilt-ruled raised bands, and blind-tooled compartment decorations; sides rubbed/scraped with leather worn over corners/edges, this not disfiguring/disturbing. Hinges (inside) reinforced with cloth tape, and the large volume now strong. Lacking title-page. Plate from Genesis I:4 removed, and laid back in with margins cut away. First few leaves with edges ragged. Pages with offsetting around plates; occasional light spots of staining, mostly confined to outer margins.

        An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations. 3 Bände (komplett). With a life of the author.

      London: Printed for Maynard; an F. Zinke; 1811.22,5 cm. lxxi, 360; vi, 512; vi, 448 S., Index. Ohldr. Kanten bestossen und beschabt. Rückengelenke etw. angeplatzt. Vorsätze schwach stockfleckig. Sehr vereinzelt etw. stock - bzw. braunfleckig und mit angerandetem Schnitt. Sonst keine Mängel. Die erste Ausgabe des bedeutenden ökonomischen Werkes, an dem Smith zehn Jahre lang schrieb, erschien 1776 in zwei Bänden. - In einem Aufsatz in dem Buch "Printing and the Mind of Man" (1967; deutscher Titel: Bücher die die Welt verändern, 1968 bei Prestel) heißt es dazu: "Die Geschichte der Nationalökonomie bis zum Ende des 19.Jahrhunderts besteht aus zwei Abschnitten: der merkantilistischen Phase, die weniger auf einer Doktrin beruht als auf einem System der Praxis, das sich aus den sozialen Verhältnissen ergab, und der zweiten Phase, welche die Lehre sich entwickeln sah, daß der Einzelmensch das Recht habe, in der Ausübung seiner wirtschaftlichen Tätigkeit nicht behindert zu werden. Man kann zwar nicht sagen, Smith habe diese Lehre erfunden - die Physiokraten hatten bereits darauf hingewiesen und Turgot im besonderen hatte eine durchgearbeitete Studie des gesellschaftlichen Wohlstandes entworfen - , doch ist sein Werk die erste wirkliche Ausführung dieser Theorie. Er beginnt mit dem Gedanken, daß die Arbeit die Quelle ist, aus der das Volk das bezieht, was es braucht. Die Verbesserung der Arbeitsteilung ist das Maß der Produktivität, und in ihr wurzelt der Hang des Menschen zum Tauschhandel: 'Arbeit ist das wirkliche Maß des Tauschwerts aller Waren ... sie ist ihr wirklicher Preis; das Geld ist nur ihr nomineller Preis'. Die drei wesentlichen Elemente der Arbeit und so auch des Preises sind Lohn, Unternehmergewinn und Grundrente, und diese drei schaffen auch die Einkommen. Vom Wirken der Wirtschaft wendet sich Smith ihrem Ergebnis zu, dem 'Stock' oder Warenbestand, der alles umfaßt, was der Mensch entweder für seinen Eigengebrauch oder um des Ertrags willen besitzt, den es ihm bringt. 'Der Wohlstand der Nationen' schließt mit einer Geschichte der Wirtschaftsentwickklung, einem scharfen Angriff auf das Merkantilsystem und einigen prophetischen Überlegungen über die Grenzen der Wirtschaftskontrolle. Während die Erforschung der politischen Aspekte der Menschenrechte zwei Jahrhunderte in Anspruch genommen hatte, bestand Smiths Leistung darin, daß er die Untersuchung der wirtschaftlichen Aspekte in einem einzigen Werk bis zum gleichen Punkte vortrieb. Sein 'Wohlstand der Nationen' stellt kein System dar, aber als vorläufige Analyse ist das Werk völlig überzeugend. Die Sicherheit seiner Kritik und sein Verständnis der menschlichen Natur haben es zum ersten und zum bedeutendsten unter den klassischen Werken der modernen Volkswirtschaftslehre gemacht." - Als Beilage dazu: Horst Claus Recktenwald: Adam Smith - Sein Leben und sein Werk. München: C.H. Beck, 1976. 1. Aufl. XIV, 311 S. Oln. - OS. Sehr guter Zustand. Mit halbseitiger Widmung des Autors. = Zum 200. Geburtstag des Klassikers 'Der Wohlstand der Nationen'.

        Exploratory Travels through the Western Territories of North America: Comprising a Voyage From St. Louis, on the Mississippi, to the Source of That River, and a Journey Through the Interior of Louisiana, anf the North-eastern Provinces of the New Spain

      London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, 1811. First English Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. Good/No Jacket. 4to - over 9? - 12" tall. Attractive 20th century brown moroccan over marbled boards with gold gilt title. New endpapers. Trimmed edges with very clean interior and very light foxing, except for folding map and title page which are foxed as are the first several pages. Title page and last page have archival repair. Owners signature on title page plus library stamp, which is the only such library marking noted. Includes both maps, one of which is folding. Editor Thomas Rees was 'mortified' at the American edition, which "work has been repinted in very nearly as incorrect a state as it appeared in the present Editor's copy." Pike led the first exploratory expedition into the American southwest by an American, using government funds. The peak outside Colorado Springs bears his name among many other landmarks named by the expedition. Jenkins states "Spanish authorities learned of his presence and sent a force to arrest him and his men. They were taken to Santa Fe and then sent on to Chihuahua. Pike's maps and papers were confiscated. Apparently he was able to convince the Spaniards that he had entered New Spain by accident, as he was escorted by armed guard through Texas via San Antonio where he was released. He arrived at Natchioches in June, 1807, having thus had the opportunity to examine New Mexico and Texas in some detail, at the expense of the Spanish government."

        Dunbarton [sic] Castle, Scotland [actually Linlithgow Palace]

      1811 - Hand-coloured aquatint, printed on wove paper. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling, minor foxing, and two small brown stains in the top left and bottom margins respectively. Trimmed to platemark on three sides. A picturesque view of the majestic facade Linlithgow Palace of one of Scotland's Royal castles. This doubly mis-titled aquatint view actually shows the east facade of Linlithgow Palace, the ruins of which stand about fifteen miles from Edinburgh. Linlithgow was the birthplace of James V and Mary Queen of Scots. The palace was vacant of royalty after James VI left to become James I of Great Britain. In 1746, the Duke of Cumberland left the building in ruins. Not much is known about the London-based landscape painter and engraver J. R. Humble other than that he occasionally exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1803 and 1824 and contributed several aquatints to John Heaviside Clark's A Practical Essay in Painting Landscapes. (1807) and R. Ackermann's The History of Westminster (1812). Cf. Benezit, Dictionnaire Des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs et Graveurs , Vol. 6, p. 703; cf.

        A Delineation of the Strata of Derbyshire, forming the surface from Bolsover in the east to Buxton in the west, by a plate, designed from a tablet, composed of the specimens of each stratum within the above line, with an explanatory account of the same; together with a description of the fossils found in these strata; and also of the nature and quality of the respective soils.

      FIRST EDITION. One of the first English books to illustrate geological strata by the use of a section.“In 1811 and 1813 White Watson published two interesting little books describing Derbyshire strata, with a section across them. The section is nearly two feet long; the general broad anticlinal structure is well shown, but the vertical scale is so enormously exaggerated as to distort the natural arrangement. Ford (1960) [‘White Watson (1760â€"1835) and his geological sections’ in Proc. Geol. Ass., 71, 346â€"363] has recently thrown a flood of light on Watson and his work” (Challinor, p. 92).The section was originally made in 1794 as a tablet using specimens of the rocks themselves. “It was described briefly in an explanatory leaflet published at Bakewell in 1794, revised 1797, and much more fully in the [present] work of 1811, which is an interesting contribution to early stratigraphical literature” (Edwards, The early history of palaeontology, p. 54).This copy is bound with Rev. Samuel Pegge’s Sketch of the history of Bolsover and Peak Castles, in the county of Derby (1785), and Charles Sylvester’s The philosophy of domestic economy (1819), on the pioneering design of the Derbyshire Infirmary. This latter work is dedicated to William Strutt, who designed the heating and ventilating system for the Infirmary, and whose son Edward became Lord Belper. This is probably therefore the dedicatee’s own copy.4to, pp. viii, 1 leaf (dedication), pp. iii, 72, 1 leaf (”Advertisement”), folding frontispiece of the geological section, 1 engraved plate. Gathering E misbound after gathering F. Bound with two other works (see below) in near-contemporary purple calf, sides panelled in blind and gilt, spine gilt (surface slightly rubbed), marbled edges and endpapers, a lovely copy. Armorial Belper bookplate (see below).

        Broadside, begins: Sabed: que ha llegado ? nuestras manos un proclama del rebelde Cura de Dolores que se titula: 'Manifiesto, que el Se?or 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, "ser? 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.
