        Ein Gerecht und Wohl Aprobierte Haus Apodeken oder Pferd Artznei Buch With: (2) Eine Agadami dass ist Artzney Mittel vor Menschen zu gebrauchen. [Upper Austria, part 1 of 1st work dated 1812 at end]. 2 works in 1 volume, the 1st in 2 parts. Folio (35 x 22.5 cm). A practical manuscript handbook in brown and black ink on paper, written in German in a German gothic hand and with numerous headings and paragraph openings in a variety of decorated gothic styles. With an elaborately decorated main title-page in at least 6 colours, the title-page of part 2 of the main work with decorative lettering and flowers in brown and red with a half-page colour drawing of a bleeding horse in the foreground of a landscape with a partly ruined castle, a church, a stone entry and other buildings, and the title-page to the 2nd work with decorated lettering and a crowned figure of death (a skeleton with scythe and hourglass). Further with drawings of 2 magical signs to protect people and livestock, and a vase of flowers and a scene with 2 buildings as tailpieces. Contemporary blind-tooled half calf.

      A remarkable Austrian manuscript in German, richly and elaborately decorated in numerous colours, devoted primarily to veterinary medicine and pharmacology for the treatment of horses, but also discussing the treatment of other livestock and with the second (shorter) work devoted to the treatment of humans. It gives instructions for preparing and using many medicines, the main work covering about 400 ailments and the work for human medicine about 50. The slightly primitive landscape on the title-page of part 2 shows a horse standing in the foreground with what appears to be blood streaming from 12 points on his body. Several headings toward the end of part 2 announce sections on ailments caused, cured or warded off by magic, including "Zauberische Kranckheiten der Roß" (p. 110) and "Ein bewertes Styck [= Stück] vor Zauwerey fur Menschen und Viech dieses bey Sich zu Tragen, und den Vuch im Stall Angenagelt" (p. 117). The latter includes two drawings of the signs that are to be carried around or nailed up[?] in the stall. They look rather like alchemical signs.With one or a few small and unobtrusive worm holes near the foot of the page through most of the manuscript, some stains and restorations in the gutter margin of the first few leaves and an occasional minor stain or smudge on other leaves, but still in good condition. The binding is worn and shows some restorations. A fascinating and elaborately decorated manuscript devoted primarily to the treatment of medicine ailments in horses, mixing folk remedies with magic.

        Travels Through the Southern Provinces of The Russian Empire, in the years 1793 and 1794. Translated from the German .

      London: Printed for John Stockdale, 1812 - 2 volumes, quarto. Recent antique-style sprinkled calf, red morocco labels. Some offsetting from a number of the plates, occasional foxing and browning, largely to the heavier paper-stock used for the text vignettes, maps browned, as often, else a very good set, unopened and untrimmed. 52 plates (44 hand-coloured, 21 of these folding), 28 vignettes (23 hand-coloured), and 3 folding maps. Second edition of one of the chief travel narratives describing Russia in the late eighteenth century, first published 10 years earlier. Pallas, an eminent German naturalist, describes what he saw "with Teutonic thoroughness" (Nerhood). A handsome production due mainly to the attractive and charming colour illustrations which appear as vignettes in the text as well as additional plates. The illustrations depict the natives of the regions traversed, their costumes and occupations, the scenery and landscapes. Although the title page calls for 121 plates, all of those listed are present. Pallas is best known for his contributions to botany, particularly the "Flora Rossica" and this travel narrative provides a background for his plant collecting ventures.

        Itinéraire de Paris a Jérusalem et de Jérusalem a Paris, en allant par la Grece, et revenant par l'Egypte, la Barbarie et l'Espagne

      Le Normant, Paris 1812 - 3 volumes. 8vo: CIX, 276pp; (4), 408pp; (4), 375pp. With large folded engraved map, original publisher's blue paste paper wrappers with printed label to spines. The author of René, and Atala, and a major figure in the Romantic movement, Chateaubriand provides here a narrative that is both historiography and guide through antiquity for the Grand Tour. The author excels at relating the richness of classical antiquity with the less than opulent contemporary state of Greece, Turkey, and the Holy Lands. Replete with quotations and insightful references, the Itinéraire also provides a model of the intellectual profile of the educated European traveler at the beginning of the nineteenth century. The first edition was exhausted so quickly that a second edition was called for the same year, which included the author’s corrections of dates and other details. Chateaubriand’s journey lasted from July 1806 to June 1807. His itinerary as recorded here is divided into seven parts: Voyage de la Grèce (I); Voyage de l'Archipel, de l'Anatolie et de Constantinople (II); Voyage de Rhodes, de Jaffa, de Béethléem et de la Mer Morte (III); Voyage de Jérusalem (IV et V); Voyage d'Egypte (VI); Voyage de Tunis et retour en France (VII).

Noticia summaria do gentilismo da Asia (pp. 61-126) [A short account of paganism in Asia]; These have been attributed by Francisco Maria Esteves Pereria to Fern?o de Queiroz, a 17th c. Jesuit, whose translation of the Bhagavat-Gita was only first published in 1922, and may have been the first translation into a western language of that work. Esteves Pereria considered it a sequel to the two pieces contained in this volume (see Ethel Pope: India in Portuguese Literature, (Bastorá: Tipografia Rangel, 1937; pp. 166-168). 3.

The Spanish Jesuit missionary José de Anchieta (1534 -1597) was one of the founders of S?o Paulo (1554) and Rio de Janeiro a decade later. Best known for his book "The Art of Grammar" on the indigenous Old Tupi language, he was also an accomplished naturalist as revealed in this work.

Half Calf glossy tan mid nineteenth-signed Belz Niedrée. Back to nerves nets. Part of title in black morocco and second piece in red morocco. Friction. Upper joint split partly fragile. The work is considered one of the major works of the Italian musical literature in the nineteenth century. It was plagiarized by Stendhal, under the pseudonym Caesar Bombet 'Letters Written in Vienna, Austria knew the famous composer Haydn', and later included in his Lives of Haydn, Mozart .... Carpani was musician and critic (he wrote even an opera), he went to Vienna, the musical scene of the time, where he admired Haydn, Beethoven and Rossini. Haydn died in 1809 There are also three biographers who followed and known Haydn and collected his memories and activities. Diplomat Georg August Griesinger (1769-1845), whose book was published in 1810, the painter and composer its Albert Christoph Dies hours (1755-1822) also appeared in 1810, and the Italian writer Giuseppe Carpani (1752-1825), The Haydine, published in Milan in 1812.'s book is thus a major source for the composer's life. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale. Rare. Un portrait de Haydn en médaillon. Reliure en demi veau glacé havane milieu XIXe signé Belz-Niedrée. Dos à nerfs à filets. Pièce de titre en maroquin noir et seconde pièce en maroquin rouge. Frottements. Mors supérieur fendu en partie, fragile. L'oeuvre est considérée comme l'un des ouvrages majeurs de la littérature musicale italienne au XIXe siècle. Elle fut plagiée par Stendhal, sous le pseudonyme de César Bombet, 'Lettres écrites de Vienne en Autriche su le célèbre compositeur Haydn', et plus tard repris dans ses Vies de Haydn, Mozart.... Carpani fut musicien et critique (il composa même un opéra), il se rendit à Vienne, le lieu musical de l'époque, où il admira Haydn, Beethoven et Rossini. Haydn est mort en 1809. On distingue par ailleurs 3 biographes qui ont suivi et connu Haydn et recueilli ses souvenirs et ses activités : le diplomate Georg August Griesinger (1769-1845) dont le livre est paru en 1810, celle du peintre et compositeur à ses heures d'Albert Christoph Dies (1755-1822) également parue en 1810, et celle de l'écrivain italien Giuseppe Carpani (1752-1825), Le Haydine, paru à Milan en 1812. L'ouvrage constitue donc une des principales sources pour la vie du compositeur.

Two highly legible hands. 78 leaves (48 are blank or ruled awaiting entries). 16mo, cont. green half-sheep & green boards, flat spine gilt, spine lettered "Catalogue des Plantes."

      [Probably Bamberg]: 1812-13-14. The catalogue of the plants in the garden of Amélie Louise, Duchess of Bavaria (1789-1823), a member of the House of Arenberg and the grandmother of Empress Elisabeth of Austria. Following her marriage to Duke Pius August of Bavaria in 1807, the couple resided in Bamberg and I would assume she kept her garden there. The catalogue is in three sections - for the years 1812, 1813, and 1814 - and lists about 450 plants, including many exotic species. Accompanying this is an octavo manuscript alphabetical index of the catalogue, undated but from the same period. Fine copies from the library of the Kings of Bavaria.

        Anatomie du gladiateur combattant, applicable aux Beaux-Arts, ou traité des os, des muscles, du mécanisme des mouvemens, des proportions et des caractères du corps humain.

      Paris, chez l'auteur, 1812. Large Folio (59.5 x 44.0 cm). 66 pp., 22 engraved plates, of which 15 printed in two colours. Contemporary green quarter vellum over green marbled boards. Red morocco label with gilt title and borders on the spine.l A very rare work on human anatomy and movement, exemplified by fine, large illustrations of a Roman gladiator, printed in red and black. The author and publisher, Jean-Gilbert Salvage (1770-1813) was a French army doctor. The so-called 'Borgehese warrior' forms the basis of his work. It is a life-size Hellenistic marble sculpture portraying a swordsman, created at Ephesus about 2,100 years ago. "It was found before 1611, in the present territory of Anzio south of Rome, among the ruins of a seaside palace of Nero on the site of the ancient Antium .... From the attitude of the figure it is clear that the statue represents not a gladiator, but a warrior contending with a mounted combatant. In the days when antique sculptures gained immediacy by being identified with specific figures from history or literature ... The sculpture was added to the Borghese collection in Rome. At the Villa Borghese it stood in a ground-floor room named for it, redecorated in the early 1780s by Antonio Asprucci. Camillo Borghese was pressured to sell it to his brother-in-law, Napoleon Bonaparte, in 1807; it was taken to Paris when the Borghese collection was acquired for the Louvre, where it now resides." Apparently Salvage was inspired by seeing the statue in Paris. All the anatomical and osteological renderings were designed by Salvage. Uncut, with the widest possible margins. Armorial bookplate of the Barante library on the front pastedown. Board edges a bit rubbed; cover at spine ends abraded, split in lower rear joint. Except for a few small, inoffensive spots internally clean. A very good copy. Brunet, 6757.

On the first two blanks is a 2 1/4 page manuscript note by Roxburghe's godson George N. Hamilton copying from the General Evening Post an article about the bidding war over a Boccacio between Earl Spencer and the Marquis of Blandford, which the latter won at a price of £2,260, and ending with: "N.B. The Duke of Roxburghe left my Father by will half of all his personal property, in which was included his celebrated library. His house in St. James Square which contained this library formed part of the personal property. The Duke was my godfather." Hamilton includes a few prices and notes within the catalogue as well."A new era in British book-collecting may be said to start with the Roxburghe sale (1812). For the first time in the history of bibliophily, the four- figure limit was reached in an auction sale for a single printed book. From being the hobby of a scholar or the whim of an eccentric commoner, the collecting of rare books became, once more, as in Harley's and Sunderland's days, the favourite pastime of the wealthy nobleman.John, third Duke of Roxburghe (1740-1804), had found in the family library a certain number of valuable books.Round this nucleus he built a handsome and extensive library. mainly devoted to incuunabula, French chivalry- romances, early English and Italian literature, Shakespeare and the drama. The sale was a most sensational affair and the total of £23,341 was an extraordinary one for the time. Dibdin has scribbled reams of enthusiastic literature on the smallest incident of each daily session." De Ricci, English Collectors of Books & Manuscripts 1530-1930, pp 71-72.

Réalisée entre 1802 et 1830 et publiée entre 1809 et 1830, elle fut tirée à 1000 exemplaires offerts aux institutions. Papier vergé au filigrane 'Égypte ancienne et moderne' visible par transparence. Planche appartenant à la série des Reptiles, dont l'étude fut réalisée par Jules-César Savigny (1777-1851), zoologiste qui participa à la campagne d'Égypte. La monumentale première édition de la Description de l'Égypte en 13 volumes comportait 892 planches dont 72 coloriées, parmi lesquelles 9 volumes concernaient l'Antiquité. Les autres volumes traitaient de l'Histoire Naturelle et de l'Égypte moderne car Napoléon Bonaparte avait emmené avec lui une commission de savants de toutes disciplines si bien que, disait-on, dans sa description était emmagasiné 'le plus riche musée de l'Univers'. Cet ouvrage fut rédigé en partie par la baron Dominique Vivant-Denon, avant que ce dernier soit nommé directeur général du Musée Napoléon au Louvre. Plus de 80 artistes et 400 graveurs furent engagés pour ce projet titanesque. Les dimensions des planches exceptionnellement grandes nécessitèrent la création d'une presse spéciale et d'un meuble spécifique pour les conserver.

        Sketch of the Sikhs; A Singular Nation, Who Inhabit the Provinces of the Punjab, Situated Between The Rivers Jumna and Indus

      London: Printed for John Murray 1812 - Sole edition thus. 8vo. (iv), 198 pp, bound without the final leaf of publisher's advertisements. Contemporary half calf rebacked to style, raised bands, gilt lettered red label, an autograph letter signed from the author bound in on a tab at the front of the book. Originally published in the eleventh volume of the Asiatic Researches. However, not being in "common circulation, it is now republished; and may prove acceptable, as a short and clear account of an oriental people, of singular and religion and manners, with whose history the European reader can be but little acquainted." The letter is addressed to "My dear Hare", Malcolm's friend the writer and theologian Julius Hare. He apologises for being in a "great bustle", but confides that "they are I am told to make me Governor of Bombay again and give me other work congenial to my whole soul." The letter has been dated 16th January, possibly in Hare's hand, and will have been composed in 1827 - the year Malcolm was appointed to the Bombay governorship. Malcolm had previously sought out the job of Governor of Madras, but Stephen Rumbold Lushington was the preferred candidate. However, in late 1826 it became apparent that Mountstuart Elphinstone was to retire from Bombay. Malcolm had considered other appointments in England in the interim, but he keenly accepted the opportunity to return to India with the potential to one day gain the highest Imperial rank, that of Governor-General. This ambition was never realised as despite his successes in Bombay his tenure was spiked with several controversies. He returned to England in 1830 where he spent the remaining three years of his life. Scarce.

PRESIDENT OF THE VIRGIN-ISLANDS, AND PRESIDENT OF THE COURT ON THIS TRIAL.

      Tertius Dunning,, Middletown [CT]: 1812 - Contemporary paper-covered boards [rebacked in period style]. [2], 186 pp. Untrimmed, occasional toning and mild foxing. Very Good. A rare printing of a judicial rarity: the trial of a master for murdering his slave. American Imprints, locating only one copy [Fisk University], suggests incorrectly that Middletown Tennessee, was the printing site. Hodge's brutality was too much even for the slave province of Tortola: the jury sentenced him to hang because Hodge, after having flogged Prosper for two days, left him to die a painful death-- without food or medical aid-- over the next week and a half. This case was extraordinary for several reasons, not least that "the chief prosecution witness was a free black woman. In the slave states (and some of the free states) it was illegal for a black to testify against a white" [Finkelman 291]. The evidence demonstrated Hodge's notoriously cruel treatment of his slaves. For Hodge's lawyers to assert "that a negro, being property, it was no greater offence in law for his owner to kill him, than it would be to kill his dog" [page 77], was surely a major tactical error. Hodge was hanged; the case apparently contributed to the abolition of slavery in the British West Indies. FIRST EDITION. Finkelman 290. II Harv. Law Cat. 1103. AI 24790 [1].

        Documents manuscrits sur les enfants abandonnés en 1812 en Dordogne (arrondissement de Nontron : 16 lettres autographes datées et signées (échange épistolaire entre le Préfet de la Dordogne, le maire de Nontron, le maire de Boulouneix et Belaygue, le maire de Corgnac-sur-l'Isle et le Sous-Préfet de Nontron sur le sort des enfants

      1812 - Enfants trouvés et abandonnés de la Gironde, de la Dordogne et du Périgord au XIX° siècle : A la campagne où ils grandissaient on les appelait « bourdeaux », en référence aux lieux de mauvaise vie, de mauvaises mères, des bordels. Lorsqu'une mère, en abandonnant son enfant, s'attache à envelopper cet abandon d'un épais mystère, l'enfant sera ordinairement illégitime, quelquefois adultérin. Ordinairement la mère a besoin du secret, parce qu'elle veut sauver sa réputation ; si elle n'a de moyens d'existence que dans son travail, elle craint aussi de perdre la position qui le lui procure. Si elle fille encore, elle appréhendera de voir s'évanouir pour elle l'espoir d'un établissement. Mais des personnes aisées, et même riches, recourent aussi à ce moyen de voiler leur faute. Le dépôt dans un hospice leur assure un secret bien plus inviolable qu'un placement en nourrice qui appellerait des confidents.Quelquefois pour mieux s'assurer du secret, on fait porter l'enfant dans un hospice plus ou moins éloignés ; il y a des gens qui font de ce transport un objet habituel de commerce. La Manufacture pouvait se définir comme un rouage essentiel de la direction des hôpitaux de la ville de Bordeaux, comme un lieu de passage ou comme un lieu de vie. C'est à la Manufacture que se situaient les services qui traitaient de la vie des enfants qui pouvaient être regroupés en trois catégories en 1811. Les enfants trouvés dont les parents ne sont pas connus - ce sont les plus nombreux jusqu'en 1852. Les enfants abandonnés nés de parents connus qui d'abord élevés par eux ou par d'autres personnes, en sont délaissés, sans qu'on sache ce que les pères et mères sont devenus. Les subsistants : leur parents sont connus. Ils sont placés provisoirement. Par la suite, certains jeunes ont été classés dans les indigents, orphelins, etc. C'est par le moyen du Tour que le nourrisson faisait son entrée officielle dans la société. « Nous ignorons comment été faite la boîte de l'Hôpital Saint-Louis, mais nous savons mieux qu'elle était celle de l'Hôpital de la manufacture auquel l'Hôpital Saint Louis fut réuni en 1772. Elle se composait d'une barrique vide dont on avait scié dans le sens vertical près de la moitié des douves, de façon à conserver intacte la partie inférieure. La barrique était montée sur un pivot central. Un autre pivot la maintenait dans sa partie supérieure et c'est ainsi qu'elle pouvait tourner facilement sur elle-même. Elle était placée juste derrière la façade principale de la maison et communiquait avec l'extérieur par une large baie circulaire pratiquée dans le mur, à hauteur d'appui. A travers cette ouverture on passait l'enfant que l'on déposait dans la barrique. On faisait ensuite pivoter celle-ci, on sonnait et la soeur venait prendre le petit abandonné dans la sinistre machine. On comprend qu'on ait pu y introduire non seulement le nouveau-né, mais plusieurs enfants, de toute taille, même âgés de douze ans ». « On sonnait et la soeur venait prendre le petit abandonné ». Après avoir été baptisé, l'enfant rejoignait la crèche où des nourrices le prenaient en charge. Car, quelle que soit son origine - il peut venir de départements extérieurs et certaines personnes faisaient office d'intermédiaires - une inscription était portée sur les registres de naissance de la ville de Bordeaux. L'histoire de cet enfant s'arrêtait là. En ce qui concerne les survivants, des petits dossiers regroupent des traces de la vie l'enfant, complétant les informations figurant sur le registre: séjours chez des familles, mariage, ou problèmes divers liés à l'enfance ou à l'adolescence de ces enfants ou très jeunes adultes. Les enfants étaient mis en nourrice dans le nord-Gironde, le sud de la Charente-Inférieure, de la Charente et dans l'est de la Dordogne. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Sketch of the Sikhs; A Singular Nation, Who Inhabit the Provinces of the Punjab, Situated Between The Rivers Jumna and Indus.

      Sole edition thus. 8vo. (iv), 198 pp, bound without the final leaf of publisher's advertisements. Contemporary half calf rebacked to style, raised bands, gilt lettered red label, an autograph letter signed from the author bound in on a tab at the front of the book. Originally published in the eleventh volume of the Asiatic Researches. However, that work not being in "common circulation, it is now republished; and may prove acceptable, as a short and clear account of an oriental people, of singular and religion and manners, with whose history the European reader can be but little acquainted." The letter is addressed to "My dear Hare", Malcolm's friend the writer and theologian Julius Hare. He apologises for being in a "great bustle", but confides that "they are I am told to make me Governor of Bombay again and give me other work congenial to my whole soul." The letter has been dated 16th January, possibly in Hare's hand, and will have been composed in 1827 - the year Malcolm was appointed to the Bombay governorship. Malcolm had previously sought out the job of Governor of Madras, but Stephen Rumbold Lushington was the preferred candidate. However, in late 1826 it became apparent that Mountstuart Elphinstone was to retire from Bombay. Malcolm had considered other appointments in England in the interim, but he keenly accepted the opportunity to return to India with the potential to one day gain the highest Imperial rank, that of Governor-General. This ambition was never realised as despite his successes in Bombay his tenure was spiked with several controversies. He returned to England in 1830 where he spent the remaining three years of his life. Scarce.

        Scloppetaria: or Considerations of the Nature and Use of Rifled Barrel Guns, with Reference to Their Forming the Basis of a Permanent System of National Defence, Agreeable to the Genius of the Country

      London: Printed by C. Roworth, Bell-yard, Temple-Bar, for T. Egerton, Military Library, Near Whitehall, 1812. x Second Edition. Hardcover Hardcover. Fine. xxiv, 251, [7] pages, including the errata sheet. Nine engraved plates and three target plates, showing the accuracy of various rifle bores. With a fourth target illustration, in manuscript, bound in. A significant early work on the rifle (the title is a Latinized word meaning The Militiaman) describing attempts to increase the accuracy of weapons. The anonymous author of this book argues for a greater twist to the rifling than was prevalent at the time. The person who inserted the additional manuscript target plate (initials R.E.P.) agreed with that proposition and his manuscript target plate results using quarter, half, and three-quarter twists supports that conclusion. Second ediiton. Recently half-bound in blue straight-grained morocco and marbled paper. Fine.
