        HOLOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED PENNED on SUPERB NAPOLEONIC WATERMARKED PAPER by JOHANNOT.

      Paris: September 29, 1812., 1812.. Fine. - Approximately 110 words penned on 9-1/2 inch high by 7-1/2 inch wide creamy white Napoleonic watermarked paper. Addressed to "Monsieur L'Administrateur", the author acknowledges receipt of the administrator's letter appointing Mr. Bobone to the position of overseer of declarations at Port Maurice "vous m'avez fait l'honneur de m'ecrire le 26 de ce mois, l'annonce de la nomination qui vient d'etre faire, sur votre proposition, de M. Bobone a la place de Receveur aux declarations au Bureau principal de Port Maurice...." Signed "C. Cornetto". The letter is penned on Napoleonic watermarked paper with a large portrait of Napoleon Bonaparte (4 inches in diameter) watermarked in blind on the cover sheet within an oval border with the legend "Napoleon Empereur des Francais, Roi d'Italie" and with the large 4 inch in diameter watermark of the imperial eagle in blind on the attached blank leaf. The papermaker's name "F. Johannot" is marked in blind across both pages. The letter is folded vertically and horizontally with some minor creases to the bottom right corners. A thin strip of clear archival quality document tape adheres to the inner edge of the last blank page, lightly obscuring the letter "a" in the papermaker's watermarked name. Near fine. <p>From the collection of James Ludovic Lindsay, 26th Earl of Crawford and 9th Earl of Balcarres, with his attractive "Bibliotheca Lindesiana" stamp centered at the bottom with the words framing an oval depiction of an eagle over a crown and with a crown pictured above the oval frame. There is a manuscript number noted beside it.<p>The British astronomer and politician James Ludovic Lindsay, 26th Earl of Crawford and 9th Earl of Balcarres was a noted collector of books and manuscripts. Starting with his father's substantial library as a base Lindsay went on to assemble one of the largest private libraries of his time, the Bibliotheca Lindesiana. Although reversals of fortune forced him to sell much of his rare book library, Lindsay continued to collect manuscripts, letters and documents from the French Revolutionary era.<p>F. Johannot manufactured his watermarked paper at the Johannot Mill in Annonay, France. The paper historian Dard Hunter claimed that the Johannot Mill created the finest watermarking of the 19th century.

        Erster Schreib und Lese Unterricht nach der Graser'schen Unterrichts-Methode

      Lithographed title & 8 lithographed plates. 8 pp. of letterpress text & 8 pp. of lithographed text. Small oblong 8vo, orig. blue silk cloth, covers with gilt border & central device in gilt. Munich: 1812. First edition of this extremely early lithographic work; it is very rare with WorldCat locating only two copies (BL and BSB). The invention of lithography about 1800 was particularly suitable for the creation of handwriting and penmanship manuals, having many advantages over printed and engraved books. The eight lithographed pages of text reproduce handwriting and the eight plates - again, all lithographed - depicts a series of letter forms. Graser (1766-1841), was a prominent Bavarian educator and reformer of teaching methods; his influence and ideas extended to Russia, Britain, and the United States. He made contributions to new methods of reading and handwriting and also was involved in developing new techniques for the instruction of deaf-mutes. Fine copy from the Wittelsbach library of the dukes and kings of Bavaria. ? Twyman, Early Lithographed Books, pp. 18-43. Graser: A.D.B., Vol. 9, pp. 584-85.

        Experiences sur le principe de la vie

      Paris: D'Hautel, 1812. Le Gallois, Jean Julien César (1770-1814). Expériences sur le principe de la vie, notamment sur celui des mouvemens du coeur, et sur le si?ge de ce principe . . . 8vo. [6], xxiv, 364, [2, errata]pp. Folding engraved plate. Paris: Chez d’Hautel, 1812. 192 x 124 mm. Paste paper boards ca. 1812, light wear, label with title in manuscript pasted to spine. Minor occasional spotting, but very good. First Edition. Le Gallois conducted a series of physiological experiments exploring the mechanism of respiration, in which he determined that respiration is controlled by a respiratory center in the medulla oblongata—the first time that “an area of brain substance . . . having a specific function had been defined accurately by experiment” (Clarke and Jacyna, Nineteenth-Century Origins of Neuroscientific Concepts, p. 246). Le Gallois also developed a primitive isolated heart-lung preparation in rabbits (illustrated in the plate to the present work), and was the first to suggest the possibility of a heart-lung machine: “If the place of the heart could be supplied by injection, and if, for the regular continuance of this injection, there could be furnished a quantity of arterial blood, whether natural or artificially formed . . . then life might be indefinitely maintained” (quoted in Fye, p. 599).

        Instruction sur les soupes économiques, avec trois planches en taille douce

      24 pages, [1] feuillet A Paris, de l'imprimerie impériale, 1812, in-8, 24 pages, [1] feuillet d'errata, 3 planches, broché, couverture d'attente muette bleue de l'époque, 3 planches gravées sur cuivre reproduisant des fourneaux économiques, dont 2 signées par Moisy, dessinateur et graveur. Intéressante et rare plaquette officielle qui démontre l'intérêt du gouvernement impérial pour les actions émanant des sociétés de bienfaisance : cette impression reprend en effet partiellement un texte publié la même année, sous le même titre, par la Société philanthropique (Imprimerie d'Everat, au moins 6 éditions parues en 1812). L'ouvrage décrit la préparation de la soupe et la construction des fourneaux permettant l'économie du bois, d'après le modèle du comte de Rumfort. En page 8 est reproduit un bon qui était imprimé sur demi-cartes, "pour tenir moins de place dans la poche", donnant droit à une portion de soupe de légumes distribuée par la Société philanthropique. Cette dernière distribuait ses "soupes populaires" depuis 6 fourneaux en activité dans la capitale : enclos de la Trinité, rue Grénelat ; Sainte-Athanase, vieille rue du Temple ; rue du Crucifix ; rue Saint-Bernard au Faubourg Saint-Antoine ; rue du Fer-à-Moulin au Faubourg Saint-Marcel ; et rue Saint-Dominique au Gros-Caillou. Joli exemplaire, tel que paru et non rogné. Intérieur frais. Bitting, 568.

        Rudiments of Landscape Drawing

      London - R Ackermann, 1812 Book. GOOD ONLY due to. Hardcover. First edition.. The first edition of this instructional work. With thirteen plates of illustrations and a final plate of colour swatches. Seven of the plates are hand coloured. Lacking half of the title page, information of publisher and publication date taken from Copac. This is a scarce work of Pyne's, who wrote several educational works such as Etchings of Rustic Figures for the Embellishment of Landscape and Microcosm, or a Picturesque Delineation of the Arts, Agriculture and Manufactures of Great Britain. William Henry Pyne was an English writer, illustrator and painter. His most successful work was his The Costume of Great Britain. This work explains the rudiments of landscape drawing and watercolour. The text explains the 'general rules' and 'observations' before delving into the technical side of drawing. Each plate demonstrates a certain technique, which is explained in the accompanying text. Techniques explored include perspective outline, shadows, directions for shadows, colouring and times of day. Condition: In a quarter calf bindingwith paper covered boards. Externally, worn. Rear joint and hinge have failed with the rear board detached but present. Boards and spine are very rubbed with some loss to the head and tail of spine. Front hinge is slightly strained but firm. Title page is defective with half missing. As is front endpaper. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are slightly age toned with scattered spots and handling marks throughout. Overall: GOOD ONLY due to rear board..

        Neue militairische Situations=und Post=Carte von Polen und Preussen von I.E. Kinittel. Nouvelle Carte militaire et routiere de la Pologne et de la Prusse par I.E. Knittel.

      1812 - Nüurnberg: Friedrich Campe, 1812. Original colour. Dissected and laid on linen as issued, total 580 x 885mm. Minor splits in linen at folds. A separate-issue map of the Duchy of Warsaw as the Prussians and Russians occupied the country after Napoleon's disastrous retreat from Moscow. It places emphasis on the post roads, which would have been the main lines of communication for the occupying army. At the beginning of the Napoleonic Wars the Polish people saw Bonaparte as the best chance for them to regain their country after the three Partitions inflicted on them by Austria, Russia and Prussia. Polish Legions fought with the French in Europe, Egypt and the West Indies, and were rewarded with the creation of the Duchy of Warsaw in 1807. However, as Napoleon's army fled from Moscow, the Russians followed, overrunning the Duchy and occupying it until the Congress of Vienna (1815) divided it between Russia and Prussia. This map is rare: we have traced only one example on the market in recent years.

        The sons of St. Dominick: a dialogue between a Protestant and a Catholic, on the occasion of the late defence of the pastoral letter, of the Presbytery in Baltimore.

      Baltimore: Pr. for Bernard Dornin, 1812. 8vo (21.5 cm; 8.5"). 96 pp. Humor, vigor, and underlying deep seriousness all characterize this dialogue defending Dominicans, Baltimore's St. Mary's seminary, and Catholicism in general against attacks by the Presbyterian Church. While "Protestant" is a bit of an intellectual bumpkin next to the notably urbane "Catholic," he is granted space to swing his sword with a will, bringing up tough questions and following up hard on the answers. Many Protestant canards about Catholics are thus put to rest by combat: Yes, Catholics may and do read the Bible; yes, there can be and have been Catholic "republics"; no, Catholics don't worship "idols"; no, the pope is not scheduled to come to the U.S. and make the president kiss his toe. The nature of Catholic schooling, the status of the Apocrypha, papal infallibility, and more are all dramatically explained in the main text, and appendices treat of many of the main headings directly. => Though produced by one "side," this is a good introduction to the long-lived issues and rhetoric of Protestant–Catholic conflict in America, as well as a good explication of much Catholic doctrine and practice.    Written by Louis William Valentine DuBourg, president of St. Mary's Seminary, in collaboration with Bishop Simon Bruté de Remur.         Parsons 417; Shaw & Shoemaker 26780. Recent quarter off-white cloth over blue-green paper sides, old style; paper spine label. This copy is complete with the leaf in the back listing books available in 1812 from Bernard Dornin's "Roman Catholic Book Store," more than a few of which PRB&M has had in its stock over the years. It strikes us that reassembling and studying the group as a whole could be an interesting and illuminating exercise.

        [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. In 2 vols. [6], ix, 246, iii, [1]; [2], 335, iii, [1] pp. 20,5x13,5 cm. With a stipple engraved frontispiece portrait of Yuri Lisiansky. Preface to vol. 1 (p. vi) signed by Lisiansky in brown ink. Contemporary straight-grained half leather with marbled boards, spines with gilt tooled borders. With a few very minor papers flaws of blank lower corners, most expertly repaired, but overall a very good original copy of this extremely rare set. First edition. Signed by the author. Extremely rare first edition of Yuri Lisiansky's account of the first Russian circumnavigation executed in 1803-1806 under command of Adam von 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» 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, etc. 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, 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). 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 St. 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 island is named after Yuri Feodorovich Lisyansky, an officer in the Imperial Russian Navy. Lisianski was the commanding officer of the Russian-American Company's merchant sloop Neva, which was on an exploration mission as part of the first Russian circumnavigation of the world when she ran aground on the island in 1805» (Wikipedia). The second Russian edition with annotations was published only in 1947. The first English edition translated by the author was published in 1814. «A companion account to the Kruzenshtern narrative of the first Russian circumnavigation. The Neva and Nadezhda left Kronstadt and remained together until their stop at Hawaii in 1804, at which point Lisianskii proceeded directly to Kodiak, where he confirmed reports of the destruction of the settlement at Sitka by Kolosh Indians. Lisianskii 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). «Lisianskii, commanding the Neva, participated in the first Russian circumnavigation of the globe under Kruzenstern. While Kruzenstern (on his ship Nadezhda) spent most of the time in Kamchatka, Lisianskii with his ship crossed to Sitka and played an important role in Baranov's reoccupying the original Russian fort and settlement there, which had been overrun by Koloshes who massacred all the Russians. This is a very important and rare work on the history of Alaska in general and Sitka in particular» (Lada-Mocarski 68). «Lisianskii, deputy commander of Kruzenshtern's expedition around the world, received word of the massacre at Sitka upon reaching Kodiak in 1804. The Kolosh Indians had attacked the settlement of the Russian-American Company and slaughtered almost the entire garrison. Lisianskii laid siege to the Kolosh stronghold and ultimately drove the Indians into the back country. Lisianskii, commanding the Neva, followed a different route from Kruzenshtern, in the Nadezhda, the two ships separating at the Hawaiian Islands. He called at Easter Island and the Marquesas, and discovered Lisianski Island in the Hawaiian Chain. 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 author was a captain in the Russian navy and commander of the 'Neva'. He visited Kodiak and Sitka, wintering at the former island, and his long stay there gave him ample time and scope for a study of the native inhabitants and their habits and customs. The long chart shows the track of the voyage, and there are charts of the Washington Islands, Cadiack, and the Harbor of St. Paul, the coast from Bering's Bay to Sea Otter Bay, Sitka or Norfolk Sound, etc.; with colored views of the Harbor of St. Paul in the Island of Cadiack and New Archangel in Norfolk Sound. There are also plates of Indian implements, etc. The work is important also as the principal source for the Sitka Massacre» (Soliday 873). Forbes 428 and 443 (English Edition). Sabin 41416.

        Blicke in das Wesen des Menschen.

      Preis Vb sehr guter Zustand ohne Stockflecken-oder Braunfärbung 8vo (203 x 224 mm). X, 259, [1] S. Pappband d. Z., mit schmuckvoll vergoldetem Rücken Aarau, H. R. Sauerländer, 1812. Erstausgabe von Troxlers Frühwerk, worin er mit der Naturphilosophie Schellings bricht und seine eigene Anthropologie entwickelt, die vor allem die Anthroposophen beeinflusste. Goethe las Troxlers Buch und schrieb dazu im Brief vom 22. Nov. 1812 an Heinrich Carl Abraham Eichstädt, Geheimer Hofrat von Sachsen-Weimar: "Es verdient allerdings beachtet, aber freylich nicht präconisirt zu werden wenn man den Verfasser auch noch so sehr schätzt, so kann man doch nicht Partei für ihn nehmen. Das Werk ist auf alle Weise problematisch und wird die Köpfe eher verwirren, als zurechtsetzen. Es hat sehr schöne, lobenswürdige, lichtvolle, brillante Partien, aber auch so viel Hiatus, Unzulänglichkeiten und Falschheiten, die sich mit Bombast umwölken und so dieser Welt zugleich eine Nachtseite erschaffen. Es ist jammerschade, daß die herrlichen Bemühungen unserer Zeit auf solche Weise wieder retardirt und die Blüthe durch die Frucht (aber nicht wie Herr Hegel und Troxler meinen) Lügen gestraft wird so lügen die Kirschen nach dem gemeinen Sprüchwort". Wildermuth, Die Philosophie J. P. V. Troxlers in: Kuratiorium Troxler. Protokolle, Vorträge Gutachten (1968), S. 7
