        Immortalité dédié a la postérité

      Napoleone Bonaparte 1812 - Importante e celebrativa incisione opera di Hyacinthe Maina, incisore nativo di Lubiana che lavorò a Venezia e a Vienna dal 1800 sino al 1815 (Benezit, vol. 7, p. 77). La composizione esalta Napoleone Bonaparte al motto di "Nec plus ultra" alludendo allo stesso tempo sia alla figura mitologica di Ercole, il quale sui monti Calpe ed Abila (meglio conosciuti come le Colonne d'Ercole) scolpì questa frase, sia alla perfezione impersonificata dall'Imperatore. In alto al centro nella corona di alloro, si trova iscritta la parola "Immortalité", e tra ogni foglia della corona stessa viene riportata una delle tante vittoriose battaglie combattute dal 1796 sino al 1809 (Montenotte, Mondovi, Lodi, Castiglione, Bassano, Arcole, Rivoli, Marengo etc ). La decoratività della composizione è esaltata dalla ricca cornice a nastro sulla quale sono iscritti i nomi dei componenti del Conseil d'Etat (sulla sinistra), Senat Conservateur (in alto), Generaux de Division (sulla destra) mentre in basso al centro la dedica ai posteri. Il fine riferimento allegorico attorno al quale è costruita la composizione dell'incisione, l'abile lavoro dell'incisiore e le dimensioni stesse della stampa lasciano supporre che l'opera fosse indirizzata ad un pubblico colto e di rango sociale elevato. Alcuni segni del tempo, rara. mm 595x810

TII : XVI, 687pp, cartonnage rouge de l'époque, dos lisse avec pièce de titre, Première édition française, traduit de l'anglais sur la sixième édition parue en 1810. L'édition originale anglaise était parue en 1801 sous le titre An Epitome of Chemistry. Envoi autographe de M. Gaultier-Claubry (1792-1878), traducteur de l'ouvrage, chimiste et pharmacien. Professeur de toxicologie à l’École de pharmacie (Paris). William Henry (1774-1836) était un célèbre scientifique, physicien et chimiste britannique, qui énonça en 1803 la loi sur la dissolution des gaz dans les liquides, appelée Loi de Henry (À température constante et à saturation, la quantité de gaz dissous dans un liquide est proportionnelle à la pression partielle qu'exerce ce gaz sur le liquide.) "Les recherches chimiques les plus notables de W. Henry étaient sur les gaz d'hydrocarbures et sur la combustion de l'ammoniac avec l'oxygène. Dans la seconde, il détermine la composition du gaz ammoniaque en faisant exploser avec une petite quantité d'oxygène. Henry entra à l'Université d’Édimbourg en 1795. en 1798-1799, il avait donné ses premières démonstrations de cours, fermement ancrées dans les nouvelles doctrines et la nomenclature. Son manuel, Éléments de chimie expérimentale, était le texte de chimie le plus populaire et le plus réussi en anglais depuis plus de trente ans. ». (DSB VI, p284) «[.] On voit, par l’analyse que nous venons de donner de l’ouvrage de M. William Henry qu’il est parfaitement à la portée des étudiants ; qu’il joint à une grand simplicité l’avantage d’offrir un traité complet. M. Gaultier-Claubry a donc rendu service à la science, en consacrant ses travaux à la traduction d’un ouvrage aussi intéressant ; mais ce jeune chimiste n’a point seulement le mérite de traducteur ; il a enrichi l’ouvrage de notes curieuses, et placé à la fin, sous la liste d’additions, un aperçu des découvertes faites depuis l’époque de l’impression de l’ouvrage anglais : ainsi il parle de la picrotoxine, de la polychroïte, donne un extrait du travail de M. Proust, sur la poudre à canon, etc. [ ] Il ne nous reste qu’à donner de justes éloges à M. Gaultier-Claubry, sur la manière dont est écrite cette traduction. Le style en est clair, et nous sommes persuadés qu’après la lecture de l’ouvrage, tout le monde en portera un jugement favorable. » Journal de Médecine, Chirurgie, Pharmacie, etc, contenant les travaux de la société médicale d’émulation par MM.

        Spain & Portugal reduced from Jasper Nantiat's Map in Four Sheets.

      London: W. Faden, April 12, 1812 - Folding engraved map, coloured in outline, dissected into 20 panels and mounted on linen (opens 558 × 786 mm; folded 188 × 130 mm). In the original marbled card sleeve-case, paper label to the front panel. Sleeve somewhat rubbed at the extremities, but unrestored and sound, linen backing of the map thinning at the folds, but similarly sound, a very good example. First thus. The insufficiencies of the British Army's cartographic provision for the Peninsular War have been much discussed; "Except for a few broadsheet maps of Spain and Portugal, and William Faden's plans of the British possessions of Gibraltar and Minorca, the London map trade had paid little attention to the Iberian Peninsula before 1808 other than to include smallscale maps in general atlases of Europe or the world. The military mobilization motivated a surge of some twenty new maps, not least because Army and Naval officers had to acquire their own maps and charts from the commercial market. Most of these productions, however, were based on López's maps and thus repeated his errors. Not surprisingly, although the Army made some use of these works, they were strongly criticized; in General Thomas Graham's opinion 'Faden's maps are only fit for burning'" (Smith, "Peninsular War Cartography: A New Look at the Military Mapping of General Sir George Murray and the Quartermaster General's Department" in Imago Mundi, 65, 2, 2013, p.235). Judge Advocate General Larpent was similarly disappointed in their coverage; " I have my route We are to carry provisions for four days with us, then provide for three, and start to-morrow or next day then go on to Fuentes de Castelegos, Forgadilla, Calcade de Don Diego, Salamanca. Few of these places are in Faden's map" (The Private Journal I, p.21). An attractive map, the deficiencies of which are certainly of historical interest.

        [Grapes] Royal Muscadine Grape

      [London]: G. Brookshaw, 1812. Aquatint engraving, with some stipple, printed in colours and finished by hand. 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 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.

        A subaltern in America; comprising his narrative of the campaigns of the British army, at Baltimore, Washington, &c. &c. during the late war.

      First edition with this title: A first-person account of an English soldier's life and career in America during the War of 1812, originally published in 1821 under the subtitle of this American edition. The work has been widely attributed to Georg Robert Gleig, but Sabin quotes Babcock as saying, "a careful examination of the volume . . . makes it perfectly clear that Gleig could not have written it." => A pencilled annotation in one margin of this copy reads "The author is not aware that the people in the Southern States are not called Yankees"; one particularly anti-American remark later in the volume has been lined through in pencil.

        Anatomie du Gladiateur combattant, de la tête d'Apollon, etc., par Jean-Galbert Salvage, copie d'après l'Édition à Paris

      Paris 1812 - Half cloth and marbled paper; folio (445x376mm); contains a manuscript title-page and 14 anatomical drawings in black and red ink, captioned by hand; all on the recto only of heavy cardstock leaves tipped onto cloth stubs. Highly skilled copy of Salvage's "Anatomie du Gladiateur," with plates numbered 1-14. Binding a little scuffed and bowed. Some light foxing and age-toning; faint waterstain along bottom edge of first two plates. Salvage, an army surgeon at the military hospital of Val-de Grâce, studied drawing and the art of plaster casting. He created three monumental écorchés of a gladiator in combat, preserved at the Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts, on which he based this beautiful atlas. Salvage's atlas was in the tradition of Genga's anatomy for artists, which presented the anatomy through the ideal forms of ancient sculpture, except that Salvage based most of it on his own sculptural studies. "His plates are based on three casts of bodies dissected to different anatomical layers and set in the pose of the Borghese Gladiator. For these casts he preferred to use the bodies of soldiers in their prime killed in duels rather than patients who died as a result of illness. The plates are colour-coded, with the muscles in red ink and the bones in black ink. The contour of the body in the skeleton plates is given in red ink, and a broken line of the same colour is used for the detached muscles in the plates of deeper dissection. This system of transparent anatomy serves as an effective aide-mémoire for the viewer of the different anatomical layers and was a popular method of anatomical illustration" (Cazort, Kornell & Roberts, The Ingenious Machine of Nature: Four Centuries of Art and Anatomy [1996], pp 219-220).

        Spain & Portugal reduced from Jasper Nantiat's Map in Four Sheets.

      London: W. Faden, April 12,, 1812. Folding engraved map, coloured in outline, dissected into 20 panels and mounted on linen (opens 558 × 786 mm; folded 188 × 130 mm). In the original marbled card sleeve-case, paper label to the front panel. Sleeve somewhat rubbed at the extremities, but unrestored and sound, linen backing of the map thinning at the folds, but similarly sound, a very good example. First thus. The insufficiencies of the British Army's cartographic provision for the Peninsular War have been much discussed; "Except for a few broadsheet maps of Spain and Portugal, and William Faden's plans of the British possessions of Gibraltar and Minorca, the London map trade had paid little attention to the Iberian Peninsula before 1808 other than to include smallscale maps in general atlases of Europe or the world. The military mobilization motivated a surge of some twenty new maps, not least because Army and Naval officers had to acquire their own maps and charts from the commercial market. Most of these productions, however, were based on López's maps and thus repeated his errors. Not surprisingly, although the Army made some use of these works, they were strongly criticized; in General Thomas Graham's opinion 'Faden's maps are only fit for burning'" (Smith, "Peninsular War Cartography: A New Look at the Military Mapping of General Sir George Murray and the Quartermaster General's Department" in Imago Mundi, 65, 2, 2013, p.235). Judge Advocate General Larpent was similarly disappointed in their coverage; " I have my routeÂ… We are to carry provisions for four days with us, then provide for three, and start to-morrow or next day Â… then go on to Fuentes de Castelegos, Forgadilla, Calcade de Don Diego, Salamanca. Few of these places are in Faden's map" (The Private Journal Â… I, p.21). An attractive map, the deficiencies of which are certainly of historical interest.

        Travels In The Island Of Iceland, During The Summer Of The Year MDCCCX

An unusually clean copy in excellent condition. This edition has been slightly revised and a short account of the Revolution of 1809 added to the Appendix. Abbey, Travel, 160. Prideaux pp. 232 & 343. Tooley 314. Mackenzie was a distinguished mineralogist and president of the physical class of the Royal Society, traveled to Iceland in 1810 in the company of Drs. Henry Holland and Richard Bright. The present work is the joint production of the three men, Mackenzie contributing the narrative of the voyage and travels, and the chapters on mineralogy, rural economy and commerce, Dr. Bright the sections on zoology and botany, and Dr. Holland the chapters on literature, diseases, and government, laws and religion. "Although the scientific portions of the book have long been superseded, it contains much information of permanent interest on the social and economic condition of Iceland." (DNB) The mineralogical collections brought back from the expedition were spoken of with great admiration by Sir Charles Lyell. The fine hand-coloured aquatints of scenery and costume by J. Clark and text engravings and plates by R. Scott and E. Mitchell are based on original sketches by the three travelers, the majority drawn by Mackenzie. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [Apples] French Crab; Minshall Crab; Cockage Apple; Red Streack; Holland Burry; New Town Pippin

      [London]: G. Brookshaw, 1812. Aquatint engraving, with some stipple, printed in colours and finished by hand. In excellent condition with the exception of some soiling in the extreme edges of sheet. Bottom left corner has been expertly infilled. Image size: 16 x 12 1/2 inches. 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 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.

        The Temple of Flora, or Garden of the Botanist, (the so-called 'lottery edition').

      London: By the author,1812. - Small Folio, half morocco, rubbed, inner edges gilt-tooled, spine gilt in compartments, sunned. Engraved pictorial title and half-title,original hand-coloured stipple-engraved frontispiece, 2 uncoloured stipple engraverdallegorical plates, and 28 original hand-coloured aquatint botanical plates, printed in blue on thick wove paper, each c.370 x 290mm., occasional marginal soiling, some spotting and offsetting to tissue guards only;presentation inscription by Lady Sidmouth on front free endpaper, recipient's name partially erased, and armorialbookplate of M. Philips. Inscribed "For Miss Georgiana ., a last remembrance from Lady Sidmouth'" presumably around 1842, the year the second Lady Sidmouth died. There is a second inscription, attached as Thornton Sidmouth 1, of 'M. Sidmouth, Richmond Park'. This is clearly a different hand to the other, and must be that of Marianne Sidmouth, at their White Lodge, Richmond Park address, the house given to Viscount Sidmouth by a grateful King George III, therefore presumably inscribed between 1823 and 1842*** This reduced-format version of Thornton's magnum opus was published in a vain attempt to finance the continuationof the magnificent folio edition started in 1799. Copies of the book and individual plates were sold by lottery, but thisventure also failed and bankrupted Thornton. The work, however, in both formats remains one of the greatest of all botanical works. This copy includes the plate depicting The Persian Cyclamen, which is sometimes missing.

        THE EMPORIUM OF ARTS & SCIENCES

      Philadelphia, 1812. Contemporary three quarter red morocco and marbled boards. Slightly rubbed and bumped. Some foxing. A very good set. A work of great importance in the history of American technology. Issued as a magazine, it was founded by John Redman Coxe, professor of chemistry at the University of Pennsylvania, who edited the first two volumes. After that it was edited by Thomas Cooper, one of the best known American scientists of the time. Articles cover all fields of technology, including much on steam engines (with a letter from Oliver Evans), iron manufacture, other metal working, telescopes, cookery, wine making, and a broad cross-section of technical topics. Although there are plates noted in the lists of illustrations which are not present here, the set is in a contemporary binding and there is no sign of their having been removed; it is likely that sets contained a varying number of plates. The number of plates present here corresponds to sets we have held previously. MOTT, AMERICAN MAGAZINES, p.151. SABIN 17283. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 25176. RINK 62.
