        Particularités et observations sur les ministres des finances de France les plus célèbres, depuis 1660 jusqu\'en 1791

      Paris Le Normant 1812 First Edition, Erste Ausgabe, Halbleder / half-leer / demi-veau / half leather, zeitgenössisch / uit dezelfde tijd / époque / contemporary, 8°, xi, 397 pages, / Seiten, Titelblatt / titelpagina / page de titre / title-page mit with Stempel / stempel / estampille / stamp, Zustand: gut, a good copy MONTYON, ANTOINE JEAN BAPTISTE ROBERT AUGET, BARON DE (1733-1820), French philanthropist, was born in Paris on the 23rd of December 1733. His father was a maf ire des comptes; he was educated for the law, and became advocate at the Chtelet in 1755, master of requests to the council of state in 1760, and intendant successively of Auvergne, Provence and La Rochelle. He had repeatedly shown great independence of character, protesting against the accusation of Caradeuc de La Chalotais in 1766, and refusing in 1771 to suppress the local courts of justice in obedience to Maupeou. He was made a councillor of state in 1775 by the influence of Louis de Bourbon, duke of Penthivre, and in 1780 he was attached to the court in the honorary office of chancellor to the comte d Artois (afterwards Charles X.). He followed the princes into exile, and lived for some years in London. During the emigration period he spent large sums on the alleviation of the poverty of his fellow immigrants, returning to France only at the second restoration. Between 1780 and 1787 he had founded a series of prizes, the awards to be made by the French academy and the academies of science and medicine. These prizes fell into abeyance during the revolutionary period, but were re-established in 1815. Montyon died on the 29th of December 1820, bequeathing io,ooo francs for the perpetual endowment of each of the following prizes: for the discovery of the means of rendering some mechanical process less dangerous to the workman; for the perfecting of any technical improvement in a mechanical process; for the book which during the year rendered the greatest service to humanity; the prix de vertu for the most courageous act on the part of a poor Frenchmanthe awards being left as before to the learned academies. Montyon wrote a series of works, chiefly on political economy: Eloge de Michel de lhpital (Paris, 1777); Recherches et considerations sur la population de la France (1778), a share of which is attributed to his secretary, Moheau; Rapport fail a Louis XVIII. (Constance, 1796), in which he maintained in opposition to Calonnes Tableau de lEurope that France had always possessed a constitution, which had, however, been violated by the kings of France; Letat statistique du Tunkin (1811); and Particularites . . . sur les ministres des finances en France (1812)..

        SECHS DEUTSCHE REDEN: GEHALTEN IN DER SYNAGOGE ZU DESSAU NEBST EINER HEBRAISCHEN UEBERSETZUNG DERSELBEN. [COMPLETE IN 2 VOLUMES]

      Dessau: M. Philippsohn, (Gedruckt Bei C. Schleider)(1812-1813). 1st Edition. Period Stylized Paper Wrappers. 8vo. 2 Volumes in 1: [119], 102 pages ; 16 cm. In German. The first volumes of published German sermons written by a Jew. Title translates into English as "Six German Sermons from the Synagogue in Dessau. " Both volumes have the same title, and each contain six different sermons. In his essay "Preacher, Teacher, Publicist: Joseph Wolf and the Ideology of Emancipation, " Yale University Professor David Sorkin discusses the significance of this publication, suggesting that Wolf "retained his own characteristic version of the Dessau tradition of the conservative Haskalah but gave it a radical turn by altering its context rather than its content. The new context was the German-language media of the journal and the sermon. In 1805 Wolf began to give some of the first German-language sermons in the Dessau synagogue. These were the exception in Central Europe....Wolf's sermons followed the best Enlightenment Protestant models of the time in their elevated diction, sombre tone and clearly demarcated three- or four-part structure. Here the religious Enlightenment, or at least its forms, seemed to have penetrated to the very heart of Judaism, the synagogue....In 1806 Wolf also helped to found the first German-language journal to be published by Jews in Germany, Sulamith....clearly heir to the Haskalah....In the media of the sermon and the German-language journal, Wolf helped lay the foundations of a 'public sphere, ' the organs of communication in which a collective identity and cultural-political consciousness could be created for the emerging German-Jewish middle classes....Wolf gathered the best of his sermons into two volumes. When they appeared in 1821-1813, they were the first volumes of published German sermons written and delivered by a Jew. Wolf's sermons inaugurated a veritable flood of sermonic literature, which continued unabated into the twentieth century. As early as the 1830s some observers were declaring the German-language sermon to be the most important of the abundant innovations aimed at rehabilitating Judaism and the Jews. " (Sorkin, pp.119-122) . The significance of this change was not lost on the author, who titled this collection, "Six GERMAN Sermons. " Notably, it was also the last publication of the great Haskalah publisher Moses Philippsohn, who was closely associated with Moses Mendelssohn. "Philippson (1775 -- 1814) was a Jewish writer, teacher, translator and publisher ... (who) contributed significantly to spreading the German language of the Jews among the Jews, and by fostering the links with German culture. " (Wikipedia, 2017) SUBJECT(S) : Jewish sermons, German. OCLC lists 10 copies worldwide with no copies on the American East Coast. Jewish institutional stamp on title page. Wrappers worn and back wrapper is creased. Paper toning. Overall, a nice copy of this historic book. About very good condition. (GER-59-17)

        Sur l'éducation nationale dans les États-Unis d'Amérique. Seconde édition.

      Paris: Le Normant, Firmin Didot,, 1812.. Octavo (196 x 120 mm). Late 19th or early 20th century half calf and marbled boards by George J. Swayne of Brooklyn, spine decorated gilt in compartments, morocco labels, marbled edges and endpapers. Large folding table opposite page 66. Engraved armorial bookplate of Alexis and Elizabeth du Pont of Rencourt to front pastedown. Folding table trimmed at foot with slight loss of text. Stated second edition but apparently the first printed. Schelle cites a "Philadelphia 1800" edition (no. 74) but we have been unable to locate a copy and it is apparently unrecorded. Dupont had published in 1793 a work of 47 pages entitled Vues sur l'éducation nationale par un cultivateur ou moyen de simplifier l'instruction, de la rendre à la fois morale, philosophique, républicaine, civile et militaire, sans déranger les travaux de l'agriculture et des arts auxquels la jeunesse doit concourir, and it is possible that he called the present work a second edition because of that. There is no mention of an earlier edition in the preface however, where Du Pont speaks only of the manuscript "made in 1800." That manuscript, completed at the request of Thomas Jefferson in August 1800, the year Du Pont arrived in the United States, is dated at the end, "A Good-Stay, pres New York, 15 juin 1800." According to the note in the Hagley record, the manuscript, or a copy thereof, was sent to Jefferson who did not act upon it until 1816 when he gave it to Francis Walker Gilmer. The latter was working on a translation in 1817 at the time of Du Pont's death. The copy sent to Jefferson and the translation have never been located. Hagley has an undated manuscript copy in an unidentified hand with Du Pont's corrections which was acquired at some point by Pierre S. Du Pont. But it was from this printed edition published in 1812 that Mrs. Bessie Gardner Du Pont made the English translation published in 1923.

He was the friend of Goldsmith, Garrick, and Reynolds, and the favourite of the Duke and Duchess of York, to whom in 1787 he was appointed equerry. All this, coupled with the facts that he was seldom, if ever, personal, and wholly abstained from political subjects, greatly aided his popularity with the printsellers and the public of his day, and secured his admission, as an honorary exhibitor, to the walls of the Academy, where between 1780 and 1808 his works frequently appeared.

        Influence or Prerogative? Being an Attempt to Remove Certain..

      1812. Scarce Essay on the English Constitution Advocating a Greater Degree of Royal Influence Twiss, Horace [1787-1849]. Influence or Prerogative? Being an Attempt to Remove Certain Popular Misconceptions Respecting the Present State of the British Constitution and Government. London: Printed for J. Hatchard, 1812. 94 pp. Octavo (8-1/4" x 5"). Stab-stitched pamphlet bound into recent stiff wrappers, printed paper title label to front cover. Some toning, light foxing to a few leaves, light soiling to title page and verso of final leaf. "The Lord Viscount Palmerston with the Author's Compliments" to head of title page, interior otherwise clean. $500. * Only edition. A presentation copy to Lord Palmerston. The author defends the influence of the Crown in the scheme of British Parliamentary government; without it the Prerogative would have to be revived. In his conservative view of the constitution and its core concept of checks and balances, the increasing influence of the Crown is indicative of the growing power of Commons and consequently the need to maintain equilibrium. Twiss was called to the bar in 1811 and later served as King's Counsel. As an author he is remembered for his life of Lord Eldon and for a number of literary works. This is his first publication relating to the law. OCLC locates 2 copies in North America, neither in law libraries. Not in Sweet & Maxwell.

Digtet er i to versioner, næsten identiske. Det ene er skrevet med gotisk, det andet med latinske bogstaver. Begge er signerede. Det ene dateret d. 20. April 1813.

        Shortly After the Beginning of the War of 1812, Monroe Expresses his Opposition to Mob Violence

      Virginia 1812 - Autograph Letter Signed as James Madison's Secretary of State to an unidentified friend, Albemarle [his home], Virginia, August 5, 1812. 1 p. Partial Transcript"Albermarle Augt. 5. 1812Dear Sir.We hear nothing of Com[modore John]: Ro[d]gers, and am much in the dark respecting the character, the causes, & consequences of the late movement at Baltimore. Altho' a combination of men, unknown to the law, without notice to the constituted authorities, to support a measure, even legal in itself, tending to excite a popular feeling, and raise a mob, for the purpose of suppressing it, can not be commended, yet mobs ought not to exist, and should be suppressed. Your friend Jas Monroe."Historical BackgroundBeginning with the first day of hostilities of the War of 1812, on June 18, 1812, the war provoked passionate pro- and anti-British sentiments in the hearts of Americans. The government's position, represented here by Monroe as Secretary of State, was vociferously opposed by the Federalists whose viewpoint was espoused by the newspaper The Federalist Republican, published in Baltimore by Alexander C. Hanson, the grandson of John Hanson, and by Henry 'Light Horse Harry' Lee, noted Revolutionary War general. Their position, clearly supporting Great Britain, was published in the issue of July 27, 1812. On the following day, July 28, an unruly mob, declaring Hanson and his supporters traitors, attacked the newspaper office. Hanson, Lee and their few adherents were rushed to a local jail for their own protection, but the next day the mob broke into the jail, killing one of the newspaper employees, injuring Hanson and severely and permanently injuring General Lee.

        Abstract of the answers and returns made pursuant to an act . . . intituled, "An act for taking an account of the population of Great Britain, and of the increase or diminution thereof

      London: House of Commons, 1812. [Rickman, John (1771-1840).] Abstract of the answers and returns made pursuant to an act . . . intituled, "An act for taking an account of the population of Great Britain, and of the increase or diminution thereof" . . . Folio. xxxi, [3], 511, [3], 200, [2]pp. [London:] House of Commons, 1812. 339 x 202 mm. Half calf, gilt spine, boards ca. 1812, some wear and rubbing, a few small stains but sound. Very good. Stamp and inscription noting that this copy was once part of the library of the Bishopric of Worcester; notice printed on recto of last leaf: "This book is to be preserved in the Episcopal Library of Worcester, at Hartlebury." First Edition of Great Britain's second census, taken in 1811, ten years after the first census. The returns gave a total population of 12.6 million people, an increase of 1.6 million over 1801. The second census followed the model of the first: The first part detailed the number of people, their occupations, and numbers of families and houses in each of the British counties, while the second part, based on parish registers, listed the numbers of baptisms and burials per county. John Rickman, who drafted the bill that became the 1800 Census Act, supervised the first four British censuses and prepared the abstracts and reports for each.

It was to be celebrated by gathering the constituents of each town for a public reading of the constitution followed by ringing of bells, light displays, and gun salutes.

        Apple] Pheonix Apple; Norman's Beauty

      G. Brookshaw, [London] 1812 - Aquatint engraving, with some stipple, printed in colours and finished by hand. In excellent condition. A fine image from Brookshaw's masterpiece "Pomona Britannica; or, A Collection of the Most Esteemed Fruits," the finest work on fruit and flowers ever produced. Its breathtaking images display a level of technical virtuosity and beauty that distinguish this magnificent aquatint as a true work of art. Brookshaw produced this 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 study, it is a masterpiece of illustration in which every picture is a testament to the artist's talent and ingenuity. Cf. Dunthorne 50; cf. Great Flower Books (1990) p. 81; cf. Nissen BBI 244; cf. Sandra Raphael An Oak Spring Pomona 40a.

        [Apple] Pheonix Apple; Norman's Beauty

      [London]: G. Brookshaw, 1812. Aquatint engraving, with some stipple, printed in colours and finished by hand. In excellent condition. A fine image from Brookshaw's masterpiece "Pomona Britannica; or, A Collection of the Most Esteemed Fruits," the finest work on fruit and flowers ever produced. Its breathtaking images display a level of technical virtuosity and beauty that distinguish this magnificent aquatint as a true work of art.Brookshaw produced this 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 study, it is a masterpiece of illustration in which every picture is a testament to the artist's talent and ingenuity.Cf. Dunthorne 50; cf. Great Flower Books (1990) p. 81; cf. Nissen BBI 244; cf. Sandra Raphael An Oak Spring Pomona 40a.

        [FIRST RUSSIAN CIRCUMNAVIGATION] Puteshestvie vokrug sveta v 1803, 4, 5 i 1806 godakh, po poveleniyu Ego Imperatorskago Velichestva Alexandra Pervago, na korable Neve, pod nachalstvom flota kapitan-leytenanta, nyne kapitana I-go ranga i kavalera Yuriya Lisyanskogo [i.e. Voyage Round the World in the Years 1803, 1804, 1805 and 1806 Performed by the Order of His Imperial Majesty Alexander the First, Emperor of Russia in the ship Neva, under Command of Captain-Lieutenant of the Fleet, Now Captain of the 1st Rank and Chevalier Yury Lisiansky]

      St. Petersburg: Typ. of F. Drekhsler, 1812. 2 vols. bound together. [4], ix, 246, iii, [1]; [2], 335, iii, [1] pp. Small Octavo. With a stipple engraved frontispiece portrait of Yuri Lisiansky engraved by A. Ukhtomsky after a drawing by G. Geuzendam. Preface to vol. 1 (p. vi) and the errata page in vol. 2 signed by Lisiansky in brown ink. Contemporary brown full calf neatly rebacked with gilt stamped armorial ex libris on the front board (Russian coat of arms), spine with gilt tooled decorative ornaments and a red leather label with gilt lettered title. Boards slightly rubbed on extremities, upper right corner of the title page of part I with an expertly removed library marking, bottom fore edge with some minor ink splashes, but overall a very good copy of this rare book. Beautiful presentation copy (both volumes are signed by the author) of the separately printed text (typography Drexler) of the extremely rare first edition of Yuri Lisiansky's account of the first Russian circumnavigation executed in 1803-1806 under command of Ivan Krusenstern. The companion but separately published folio atlas volume was printed at the Naval Printing Office in St. Petersburg. The majority of copies of the few we were able to trace consist of either the text volumes or the atlas, which would also suggest their separate distribution. Furthermore, according to Lisiansky's biography and the Russian National Library, it seems that the text was privately published and funded by Lisiansky and his wife and the atlas was published on account of the Office of the Russian Emperor. The stipple engraved portrait frontispiece of Lisiansky in volume one, executed by the prominent Russian engraver Andrey Ukhtomsky (1770-1852) after a drawing by Gerrit Yacobus Geuzendam (1771-1842) present in this copy is often absent as it isn't present the Russian National Library copy and both Forbes and Lada-Mocarski don't mention the portrait frontispiece in the first text volume but instead incorrectly call for it in the folio atlas which Forbes also notes is lacking the portrait in the copy he examined. In the preface Lisiansky notes that due to frequent storms and unexpected circumstances his ship ''Neva'' had to be parted with Krusenstern's ship ''Nadezhda'' many times, and not only did he have to perform a separate voyage, but also had ''to observe and describe places which Krusenstern had no chance to visit'', and this edition was published for ''the respected readers'' to have ''the full account of the voyage''. The first volume starts with the ''list of the Officials and Naval Servants of the ship Neva'' (pp. vii-ix) and describes the voyage from St. Petersburg to the Atlantic Ocean, Brazil (Santa Catarina Island), around Cape Horn to the Easter Island and further to the Marquesas and Hawaii. Six chapters out of ten are dedicated to Neva's voyage in the Pacific. Easter Island was visited on 17-21 April 1804; Lisiansky describes its relief, shores and bays (giving advice on navigation around the island), famous statues, natives and their dwellings, handcrafts, and costumes, notes about communication with the natives, et al. The Marquesas were visited on 7-17 May; ''Neva'' reunited with ''Nadezhda'' in the Taiohae Bay (Nuku Hiva), where the local king and queen visited the ship, Lisiansky visited the king's hut, home of an Englishman Roberts who lived there, local cemetery; the king was treated with pancakes, honey and port wine; 15 May - Krusenstern and Lisiansky with several officers visited nearby Hakaui Bay where they found a wonderful anchorage and a small river which Lisiansky called Nevka (after an arm of the Neva River in Saint Petersburg). Separate chapter outlines geographical location of the main Marquesas Islands (southern Fatu Hiva, Moho Tani, Tahuata, Hiva Oa, and northern Ua Pou, Ua Huka, Nuku Hiva, Eiao), and gives a detailed description of Nuku Hiva: coast, relief, anchorages, advice on navigation, local kings, wars, burials, wedding ceremonies, human sacrifice, explanation of taboo, appearance and beauty of locals, tattoos, costumes, signs of cannibalism, war tactics, weapons; special division describes about twenty local trees and plants. There is also a dictionary of the Nuku-Hivan language (pp. 152-159), including expressions like: ''Don't touch, the cannon will kill you'', ''He is a thief'', ''Have you stolen anything?'', ''Do you want to sleep on the ship?'', ''Do you eat your enemies?'' and others. The Hawaiian Islands were visited on 8-20 June, 1804. Two days after the Hawaii Island had been sighted, ''Nadezhda'' left for Kamchatka (on the 10th of June), and Krusenstern didn't land on the islands. 11-16 June ''Neva'' visited Kealakekua Bay where Captain Cook had been killed in 1779, bought provisions from the islanders, went to the village where the chief showed them holes on the trees from British cannon balls fired after the death of Captain Cook, looked at the royal palace, main temple and talked to the local priest, later visited the place of death of Captain Cook and saw ''the stone where this immortal man fell, and soon after we saw the mountain where according to the locals his body was burned''. After returning to the ship Lisiansky found there two Americans who told him about the Sitka massacre which had happened the previous year. 19 June - visited Waimea Bay (Kauai) and talked to the local king who was in the state of war with Kamehameha I. Separate chapter describes the Hawaiian Islands, especially the Big (Hawaii) Island: local kings and laws, barbaric customs, the meaning of the taboo, armed and naval forces of king Kamehameha, Hawaiian calendar and holidays, temples, human sacrifice, funerals, appearance of the Hawaiians, their costumes, list of prices paid for the provisions, and others. Separate chapter is dedicated to the reign of Kamehameha, talking about history of his ascension to the throne, and wars with other chiefs; Lisiansky also talks about the volcanic activity of the islands, local agriculture, and domestic animals; concise dictionary of the language of the inhabitants of the Sandwich Islands (pp. 228-236), includes phrases: ''Do you have pigs?'', ''Eat shit'' (noted as 'common curse of Sandwich Islanders'), and others. Five chapters of the second volume are dedicated to Neva's voyage in Russian America, including ''Brief dictionary of the languages of the north-west coast of America with Russian translation'' (the largest of all dictionaries prepared for the book, with about 500 words and expressions, and their translations into languages of Sitka and Unalaska, pp. 154-207). Lisiansky gives a detailed description of the Battle of Sitka (October 1804), voyages around the Kodiak Island and wintering there. Last three chapters describe the return travel to Saint Petersburg via Canton, Sunda Strait and Cape of Good Hope, and the discovery of the Lisianski Island (Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, ca. 1,600 km northwest of Honolulu). The first English edition translated by the author was published in 1814. ''A companion account to the Kruzenshtern narrative of the first Russian circumnavigation... Lisiansky sailed into Baranov, repulsed the Indians, and took possession of a new hill, which he named New Archangel. He spent more than a year at both Sitka and Kodiak, and the text proves him to have been a keen observer. His account of the Marquesas differs from that of Kruzenshtern . The Neva arrived at Hawaii June 8 and departed June 20, 1804, and .., includes visits to Kealakekua Bay and to Waimea, Kauai '' (Forbes 443). ''This is a very important and rare work on the history of Alaska in general and Sitka in particular'' (Lada-Mocarski 68). ''Appended are vocabularies of the language of Nuku Hiva, the Hawaiian Islands, the Islands of Kodiak and Unalaska, the Bay of Kenai, and Sitka Sound'' (Hill 1026 (English Edition)). ''Highly important work on Sitka, Kodiak and other parts of the northwest coast'' (Howes L372). ''Ranks in value with Cook and Vancouver as a contribution to geographical knowledge on the N. W. Coast, Sandwich Islands, etc.'' (Wright Howes 56-259). ''Most important work dealing with discoveries on the N.W. coast of America. The work is important also as the principal source for the Sitka Massacre'' (Soliday 873). Forbes 428 and 443 (English Edition). Sabin 41416. Smith 2255. Wickersham 6260 (incorrectly described).

        1812 1ed English Corvisart Treatise on Heart Disease Medicine Cardiology Gates

      Boston, Philadelphia : Bradford et Read, Anthony Finley, 1812. First English edition. - 1812 1ed English Corvisart Treatise on Heart Disease Medicine Cardiology Gates Important Treatise of Napoleon’s Personal Physician A rare and extremely important first edition of Corvisart’s treatise on heart disease. Jean Nicolas Corivsart was French physician during the 18th- and 19th-centuries and was well known for placing an emphasis on heart disease symptoms and studying cadavers and postmortem evidence. He was also Napoleon Bonaparte’s personal physician. This first English edition of “An Essay on Diseases of the Heart” was translated by Jacob Gates. It established many landmarks in the study of heart disease, even though Corvisart may not have penned the entire work himself. According to sources, “The first edition of Corvisart's treatise on heart diseases was written by C. E. Horeau from notes based upon Corvisart's course of clinical lectures. . . . Corvisart differentiated between cardiac and pulmonary diseases, provided the first adequate classification of the symptoms of heart disease, distinguished between functional and organic disturbances of the heart, and was the first to divide the course of heart failure into three stages. He dealt with the pathology of the pericardial sac and the muscular and fibrous tissues of the heart, gave the first description of carditis, and pointed out the relationship between valvular lesions and the development of heart failure” (Norman 518).

        Plan von Moskau nach der neuesten russischen Original Aufnahme . gewidmet von Goetz und Dietrich. Plan de Moscou. [???? ?????? ??????].

      Königlichen Beschäftigungsanstalt am Anger Munchen 1812 - Hand-coloured lithographed broadsheet plan (98 x 91.5 cm), printed on four sheets, table of Moscow districts lower right, rolled in original cardboard tube. With explanation of the plan of Moscow in Russian, French and German (19.7 x 11.7 cm), 40 pp. Very fresh example of this incunable of lithography with the extremely rare "Explication du Plan de Moscou". One of the earliest lithographic plans of the city, interestingly printed in Bavaria shortly before the invasion of Russia in 1812. Since this Catholic state was then already under Napoleonic rule, the plan was printed in French for the conquerors coming to Moscow with Napoleon. The accompanying booklet lists in Russian, French and German more than 300 sites indicated on the plan, including governmental buildings, barracks, food warehouses, as well as gateways and bridges. The result is a clear picture of the municipal, military and strategic infrastructure of the city immediately before the destruction by the "Fire of Moscow". WorldCat locates only three copies of the plan in public libraries: in Cambridge University library, University Library LMU in Munich and Bavarian State Library.

        Plate 16; Drap d'Or, White Gage Plum, Blue Gage Plum, Green Gage

      London: 1804 - 1812 - Sheet Dimension: 19.25 x 15.25 in. Frame Dimension: 29.75 x 25.75 in. Hand-colored aquatint engraving. Brookshaw’s fine illustrations make excellent use of the rich, modulated tones that the aquatint process creates. The elegantly arranged and richly colored fruits emerge from deep brown backgrounds or float on a softly mottled light ground, creating a presence unlike that of any other botanical illustrations. Brookshaw asserts in the preface that the Pomona Britannica was an enduring work created for the enjoyment and edification of “succeeding generations.” The beauty and uniqueness of his illustrations guarantees the lasting value of this most exceptional work.

The binding is strong, the text block is secure, the hinges are solid, all plates are present as called for (although they are missing the tissue guards), and the only prior owner marking we saw is a small (approximately one-half inch) arrow in black ink drawn on the front joint pointing "up", we assume as an assist to open the book correctly as there is no label on the front board. The clamshell box is also very good overall with some general wear and light soiling, with one small scrape at the bottom of the front, it remains solid and sturdy. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that due to the size of this volume additional postage may apply; please contact us for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        Natural History, General and Particular… Illustrated with Above Six Hundred Copper Plates. The History of Man and Quadrupeds Translated, with Notes and Observations, by William Smellie, Member of the Antiquarian and Royal Societies of Edinburgh. A New Edition, Carefully Corrected and Considerably Enlarged, by Many Additional Articles, Notes, and Plates. (etc.) (Complete with all plates present)

      T. Cadell and W. Davies, London 1812 - Octavo, 20 volumes, complete, with all plates present. In contemporary full treecalf, with gilt spines, morocco spine labels, gilt borders, and marbled endpapers. The volumes range from about good to very good or better condition. Most of the spine ends are worn, and there is general, but shallow wear to the corners and fore-edges of many volumes. The front board of Volume I is detached, but present, and some other volumes share a similar, but happier fate, with the front board hanging on by the stitching. The stitching is thick rope, so while the outer joints are no longer holding, the rope is keeping the binding together (more images upon request). The plates are overall in lovely condition, with as many as a few dozen affected by mild to moderate foxing or age-toning, mostly in the birds section (and mostly within Volume XII). Still, the overwhelming majority of the plates are bright and clean, without so much as a single spot of foxing. Happy to provide any images of any specific plates upon request. The text leaves opposite the plates are partly age-toned, as is to be expected, but all other text leaves are bright and clean, with only the most scattered foxed leaves. Some faint and shallow dampstains to a few volumes, hardly affecting any plates. Plate III in Volume I (a folding plate) has a thumb-sized chip at one corner, not approaching the image. There were a few binding/printing mistakes, but all in the positive (or at least neutral) direction - there are two copies of plate 254 bound in right next to each other, and plates 46-54 in Volume XII are all in the wrong order, but all present. A few spines are just about split, but holding. Some minor, and seemingly incomplete, repairs to a few spine labels (they were not re-titled in gilt - see images), but this is otherwise a completely original set with no other evident repairs. Though external condition makes this decidedly not a fine set in terms of condition, the plates are overwelmingly in lovely shape, and the whole set is mercifully complete. Bookplate of Joseph Neeld appears in each volume. Neeld was a Solicitor in Middlesex, England around the time of publication, and this could have belonged to him or his son of the same name, who was soon after an MP for Gatton, Surrey, and, later, Chippenham, Wiltshire. A desirable set. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
