Pierre Lapie
1812. good antique condition. Pierre LAPIE Universal Geography Atlas Ancient and Modern Paris engraving France 1812 Pierre M. Lapie (1779 - 1850) and his son Alexandre Emile Lapie (1809 - 1850) were French cartographers and engravers active in the early part of the 19th century. The Lapies were commissioned officers in the French army holding the ranks of Colonel and Capitan, respectively. Alexander enjoyed the title of "First Geographer to the King", and this title appears on several of his atlases. Both father and son were exceptional engravers and fastidious cartographers. Working separately and jointly they published four important atlases, an 1811 Atlas of the French Empire (Alexander), the 1812 Atlas Classique et Universel (Pierre), the Atlas Universel de Geographie Ancienne et Modern (joint issue), this atlas is the version destined to the education of the elite class during the Napoleonic period , the map including the annexing of most of the European nation was soon to be discarded after the defeat of 1815 pushing Napoleon to exile and the restoration of Louis XXVIII to the throne .Lapie brought rigor and discipline with its precise engraving and informational density which was influential on German commercial map makers in the 19th century , destined to take over cartography in continental Europe during the mid 1800 ; you can see the similarity in the work of Stieler ( see Adolf Stieler 26 February 1775 - 13 March 1836).Works by Lapie are held in the collection of the Library of Congress and museum . It includes 3 folded large maps of the French empire , Italy , U … [Click Below for Full Description]

Tully was hanged in South Boston in December, 1812. Dalton was reprieved at the last minute. According to some accounts, nearly 15,000 people gathered to witness the execution. It was certainly a notable event, generating at least a half dozen pamphlets and a broadside. In his Life, Tully claims to have been framed by the ship's cook.

MALCOLM, John, Sir.
London: John Murray, 1812. London: John Murray,, 1812. Octavo (234 x 145 mm). Contemporary half calf, sometime rebacked, titles in gilt on spine, marbled boards. 3 pp. of publisher's advertisements at end. Late 19th-century marginal annotations in ink. Binding sometime restored, a little wear to extremities, endpapers renewed, repairs to title page with a couple of letters supplied in ink, some foxing to first and last few leaves; an otherwise clean and bright copy. First edition of this scarce account of Sikhism, the cornerstone of later publications on the topic, annotated over four pages by a British Officer who interacted with the Sikhs during his service. This "preliminary effort" (Khurana, p. 22) on the subject sheds some light on the history of the Sikhs, their countries and government, and their religion. Sir John Malcolm (1769-1833) was a diplomatist and administrator in India. He landed at Madras in 1783 at the age of 14, and soon taught himself Persian and moved into diplomacy. By all accounts an autodidact, he studied the history of India and the formation of the British Empire, "thus, through his conscious effort, young Malcolm came to be a full man" (Khurana, p. 18) who wrote several books, of which his History of Persia, "brought him an honorary doctorate of laws from Oxford" (ODNB). Writing about the Sikh community "at a juncture when the British were actively trying to befriend the Sikhs" (Khurana, p. 20), Malcom's objective was to raise awareness of the Sikh culture and the lack of reliable information about it. Khurana points out that "his taking up of … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paris: Louis Janet, 1812-14-18 These almanacs were printed from 1812 to 1826. The literary editor was Charles Malo (1790-1871), who was known for publishing various series, often aimed at women. In addition to almanachs, he published popular volumes on natural history and geography. The 1812 volume is in original blue glazed boards; the 1814 is in contemporary (original?) red silk, gilt; and the 1818 volume is in original pink glazed boards. All edges gilt. All three are in matching or color-coded pull-off board slipcase with matching designs. Three volumes, 5 x 3 1/8." 143. Engraved vignettes on title-pages, each volume with several engraved plates Some rubbing and soiling. Joints of the 1814 volume starting, but sound. One edge of the slipcase for the 1814 volume has come off and is inserted, along with a ribbon marker. Some light foxing. Twentieth-century bookplate in each volume. Overall in very good condition, particularly for such a fragile group. OCLC lists no library that has anywhere near a complete run; the only libraries with several volumes in the series are in Europe, according to their findings. Of the volumes represented, we found the 1812 volume at McGill, and the 1814 and 1818 volumes only at German and Dutch libraries

1812. Angeboten wird das abgebildete, recht großformatige, unten links signierte Werk in Öl oder Aquarell des bedeutenden, im Alpenraum tätigen Landschaftsmalers Münchener Schule Eduard Schleich dem Älteren (1812 - 1874) welches nach Auskunft eines von mir konsultierten Experten für Werke dieses Malers ein typisches und seltenes Frühwerk Schleich´s aus der Zeit um 1830/1840 in Anlehnung an die Werke des Landschaftsmalers Deutscher Romantik Carl Rottmann darstellt. Die Echtheit des vorliegenden Werkes und der Signatur werden ausdrücklich garantiert! Das ausgezeichnet erhaltene Werk ist in einem hochwertigen, goldfarbenen Rahmen (ca. 57 x 72 cm) sehr ansprechend hinter Glas gerahmt und soll -nach mündlichen Überlieferungen, welche aber leider nicht konkret belegt werden können- angeblich aus dem ehemaligen Besitz von Adolf Hitler stammen. Schleich und Spitzweg gehörten zu dessen Lieblingsmalern , sodass diese mutmaßliche Provenienz tatsächlich stimmen könnte. Eine Gewähr dafür kann ich aber leider nicht übernehmen. Vielleicht finden sich aber auf der Rückseite des Stückes noch weitere Hinweise, Vermerke, Inventarnummern, Stempel o.ä. , das Werk wurde von mir nicht ausgerahmt. Originale Werke von Eduard Schleich d. Ä., insbesondere von dieser Qualität, befinden sich üblicherweise nur in Museen und werden nur sehr selten angeboten, stellen nicht zuletzt auch eine ausgezeichnete Wertanlage / Kapitalanlage dar!

Eight Litchfield Connecticut Men Support the War of 1812 [WAR OF 1812]. Document Signed. Litchfield County, Conn. Ca. 1813-1815. [docketed "Support of the War 1812"], 1p. Inventory #24163 On June 1, 1812 the War of 1812 became the first war declared by the United States. New Englanders derisively called it "Mr. Madison's war" and bemoaned its economic impact, especially in coastal areas, where shipping and fishing had been largely shut down by the British Navy. The conflict was so unpopular in the region that a number of politicians who had supported it were voted out of office in the next election. Nonetheless, much of the funding and many of the troops came from the New England, and some of the conflict's signal naval battles were fought just off the New England coast. This document, signed by eight New Englanders, is evidence of that support. The traceable names, such as Asa Prime, Benjamin Stone, John J. Orton, and Elijah Couch originate in Litchfield County, Connecticut, hailing from towns such as New Milford, Reading, and Kent. Their support is both patriotic and pragmatic: the British depredations suffered by coastal New England residents might have seemed distant to these inland farmers in the Northwest Corner of Connecticut, largely out of British reach. Full transcript Whereas great pains have been taken to impress the public mind with the idea that the War in which we are engaged with Great Britain, is extensively unpopular, and that it will not be supported by the People of New-England, the undersigned think proper to declare, that while they lament the necessit … [Click Below for Full Description]

1812. Angeboten wird das abgebildete, recht großformatige, unten links signierte Werk in Öl oder Aquarell des bedeutenden, im Alpenraum tätigen Landschaftsmalers Münchener Schule Eduard Schleich dem Älteren (1812 - 1874) welches nach Auskunft eines von mir konsultierten Experten für Werke dieses Malers ein typisches und seltenes Frühwerk Schleich´s aus der Zeit um 1830/1840 in Anlehnung an die Werke des Landschaftsmalers Deutscher Romantik Carl Rottmann darstellt. Die Echtheit des vorliegenden Werkes und der Signatur werden ausdrücklich garantiert! Das ausgezeichnet erhaltene Werk ist in einem hochwertigen, goldfarbenen Rahmen (ca. 57 x 72 cm) sehr ansprechend hinter Glas gerahmt und soll -nach mündlichen Überlieferungen, welche aber leider nicht konkret belegt werden können- angeblich aus dem ehemaligen Besitz von Adolf Hitler stammen. Schleich und Spitzweg gehörten zu dessen Lieblingsmalern , sodass diese mutmaßliche Provenienz tatsächlich stimmen könnte. Eine Gewähr dafür kann ich aber leider nicht übernehmen. Vielleicht finden sich aber auf der Rückseite des Stückes noch weitere Hinweise, Vermerke, Inventarnummern, Stempel o.ä. , das Werk wurde von mir nicht ausgerahmt. Originale Werke von Eduard Schleich d. Ä., insbesondere von dieser Qualität, befinden sich üblicherweise nur in Museen und werden nur sehr selten angeboten, stellen nicht zuletzt auch eine ausgezeichnete Wertanlage / Kapitalanlage dar!

BROOKSHAW, After George (1751-1823)
[London]: G. Brookshaw, 1812. Aquatint engraving, with some stipple, printed in colours and finished by hand. In good condition. A fine image from Brookshaw's masterpiece: 'Pomona Britannica; or, A Collection of the Most Esteemed Fruits'. George Brookshaw's 'Pomona Britannica' is the finest work on fruit and flowers ever produced. Its breathtaking images display a level of technical virtuosity and beauty that distinguish this magnificent work as a true work of art. As a retired cabinetmaker, Brookshaw produced his seminal botanical study late in his career, at first publishing it in parts and then as a complete edition in 1812. The fact that this outstanding work took ten years to complete is evident in the quality of its images and the care with which Brookshaw executed each individual picture. 'Pomona Britannica' was produced as a visual record of the best available varieties of fruit in an attempt to encourage gardeners to experiment with growing fruit, and illustrates examples found in the Royal gardens at Hampton Court, Kensington Gardens, and the private gardens of the Prince of Wales in Blackheath. 'Pomona Britannica' differs from other botanical works in its dark aquatinted backgrounds and its stylized compositions. By using aquatint to create a contrasting background, Brookshaw manages to produce a truly dramatic effect. His use of stylized composition distinguishes his pictures from the dry scientific illustrations found in other botanical studies and creates an exceptionally beautiful visual experience. 'Pomona Britannica' is not only a didactic s … [Click Below for Full Description]

Milan, Imprimerie Royale, 1812. 2 volumes in-8, demi-veau fauve de l'époque à petits coins, dos lisses ornés de filets dorés, pièces de titre de maroquin bordeaux, tranches jonquille, xx, 368 p. et (4), 510 p. Edition originale de cet ouvrage considéré comme l’un des meilleurs comptes-rendus des doctrines et réalisations du grand pédagogue Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi. Rousseauiste, militant néo-babouviste, champion d'une pédagogie nouvelle, Marc-Antoine Jullien (dit "de Paris") découvrit Pestalozzi à Yverdon où il séjournait. Il en devint le disciple et l'ami et lui confia ses propres enfants. C'est lui, principalement, qui révélera le grand pédagogue zurichois au public français, avec cet ouvrage publié à Milan. "Cet ouvrage esquisse explicitement le projet d’une "science de l’éducation", entendue au sens d’une "science positive". De la rencontre avec Pestalozzi, du contact avec des pratiques éducatives nouvelles, naît cet essai de rationalisation des faits éducatifs. Il constitue la première tentative de découpage d’un champ empirique d’observation, d’élaboration de techniques d’investigation et d’utilisation de modèles d’analyse formels" (J. Gautherin, "Perspectives, Revue d'Education", UNESCO, vol. XXIII, n° 3-4, 1993, p. 783-798). (Cf. Buisson 1911, p. 918 et s. H. Lacarpe, 'Jullien de Paris', p. 105 et s.). Quelques rousseurs éparses.
