        Registre de correspondances]. Londres, Paris.

      1812-1816 1812 - In-4 de (26)-154 pp. couvertes d'une écriture fine, régulière et très lisible (environ 30 lignes par page), [98] ff. vierges, le tout sur papier filigrané et réglé horizontalement, cuir de Russie fauve, dos lisse, encadrement de guirlande et semis de croisillons à froid sur les plats, tranches marbrées (reliure du XIXe siècle). Important registre de correspondance active comprenant 156 lettres et billets, depuis le 26 mai 1812 jusqu'au 26 septembre 1816. L'auteur ne donne pas d'éléments pour l'identifier exactement, mais une tradition extrinsèque attribue le texte à un membre de la famille gantoise des Falligan, qui a laissé de sa richesse et de son activité passées le magnifique hôtel qui orne le Kouter (place d'armes) de la ville. Le manuscrit s'organise en deux volets complémentaires : 1. Les premiers feuillets sont occupés par un registre alphabétique des correspondants, sur feuilles à onglets latéraux. 2. Le corps du texte consiste dans la minute de lettres expédiées depuis Londres (155 sur 156) ou Paris (la dernière) à de nombreux correspondants, et rédigées la plupart du temps en français, mais quelques fois en anglais. Les matières traitées sont essentiellement commerciales et financières (envoi de factures, de connaissements, d'états, etc., compte-rendus d'affaires, suivi de différents cours), confiées à des intermédiaires la plupart résidant à la Martinique, à l'Ile-Bourbon (Maurice) ou à l'Ile-de-France (la Réunion). Mais une partie des lettres revêt un caractère plus intime, celles, généralement plus longues, adressées à M. de Montbrun Desbassyns, ou Mme Sophie de Montbrun, qui apparaissent comme des membres de la très célèbre et abondante famille créole Panon Desbassyns, originaire de Toulon, et fixée dans les îles dès le XVIIe siècle. Elle y fit souche de nombreuses branches, et devint l'une des plus riches familles de propriétaires terriens de Maurice et de La Réunion. Le ton de ces dernières missives laisse penser que l'auteur des lettres était le père ou le frère de Sophie de Montbrun ; il traite surtout avec son mari, et, si les considérations de négoce ne sont pas absentes, les sujets les plus variés sont abordés, dont la situation politique en Europe : c'est ainsi que les lettres du 4 novembre et du 23 décembre 1812 donnent des nouvelles de ce que l'on pouvait savoir à Londres de l'issue de la Campagne de Russie. Les opinions du rédacteur sont celle d'un "émigré" qui se glorifie de sa situation, et est résolument opposé à celui qu'il appelle ironiquement "le grand empereur". Les échecs de l'armée impériale en Russie le réjouissent : "Vous verrez par les papiers que ses succès en Russie lui ont coûté cher, que malgré tous ses efforts, il n'a pas encore rompu l'armée russe (.)" (4 novembre) ; "Les choses ont bien changé de face en Russie, et l'orgueil du petit caporal doit être terriblement rabaissé par la retraite qu'il est obligé de faire et que l'on pourrait appeler à plus juste ttre une fuite plus qu'une retraite. Nous sommes tous ici dans l'admiration de Russes par le dévouement dont ils donnent des preuves tous les jours." (23 décembre). D'ailleurs, la dernière lettre signée de Londres est du 23 juin 1814 : avec une interruption de deux ans, l'auteur reprend son registre pour la dernière fois, le 26 septembre 1816, mais la missive est de Paris et l'on apprend que l'auteur est revenu de Londres à Paris. Dos et plats un peu frottés, qq. déchirures de ff., notamment une avec manque de texte en bas du ff. 102-103, mais bon exemplaire.

        [Melon] White Candia (White Flesh Melon)

      [London]: G. Brookshaw, 1812. Aquatint engraving, with some stipple, printed in colours and finished by hand. Very good condition. Image size: 16 5/8 x 13 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 book 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 books 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.

XIX, decorada en negros y dorados con nervios y tejuelo; cortes dorados. La encuadernación presenta muy leves despellejamientos de diferentes épocas. A juzgar por las fuertes bisagras (necesarias para manejar un volumen de estas dimensiones) dispuestas profesionalmente en el s. xx, quizás ese fue el momento en que se "construyó" esta encuadernación. Las dimensiones de los planos, el lomo y el cuerpo de la obra incitan a pensar que el lomo es de la encuadernación original. La mayoría de los grabados con hoja volante de papel de seda. A partir del grabado de la 'Sibila' de Rafael, casi todos los grabados llevan numeración correlativa. Puntos de oxidación y ligeros oscurecimientos en los márgenes de algunas hojas de grabado, especialmente de la primera serie; mancha de humedad antigua que afecta solo al margen lateral de los cinco últimos grabados; mínima rasgadura en margen lateral de hoja de contenido; una hoja de grabado de la segunda serie, con rasgadura sin afectar al grabado.- // Proc.: Ex-Libris encolado en contraplano delantero, Edward [Davies] Davenport (divisa "Time Deum et Honora Regem"); ex-libris manuscrito en verso de hoja de confianza final, 'Brian Elias, Dec. 1965'.- // Refs.: Brunet, I, 1761; Choulant, pp. 101-102, Graesse, II, 112; Lowndes (1858), II, p. 405; J.A.G.

Weigel, pp. 52-53, 40.- // Descripción del contenido: (.) // Extraordinario volumen, absolutamente completo de los grabados de la colección publicada por John Chamberlaine en 1812. Nombrado 'Keeper of Drawings and Medals to the King' en 1791, desde que ocupó el puesto tuvo el empeño de dar a conocer el fondo de la colección real mandando reproducir algunas de las mejores obras de los grandes maestros existentes en esa colección, en una labor que se extendió a lo largo de 30 años. Después de una exitosa antología de obras de Holbein iniciada en 1792 (que no culminó hasta 1800), entre 1795 y 1796 inició otras dos series que se verían interrumpidas prolongadamente por razones que desconocemos. Una, dedicada a Leonardo, se previó en dos entregas con un total de dieciocho grabados y el autorretrato de Leonardo. La primera de ellas, que apareció en 1796 recogiendo la portada, un breve estudio sobre Leonardo, nueve grabados fechados en 1795 y 1796, dos de ellos de anatomía, y la transcripción y la traducción de las notas manuscritas que aparecían en esos dos grabados, se tituló (.) Y también el grabado de puntos coloreado de Bartolozzi a partir de un Ecce homo de Guido Reni, estampado el día de Navidad de 1802, que aparece en muy pocos ejemplares como frontispicio. Este contenido total teórico, con 74 grabados distribuidos en 68 hojas, es el que hemos detallado al principio de esta ficha a partir de la comparación del ejemplar que ofrecemos con los existentes en la Smithsonian Institution, la Biblioteca Hertziana de Roma, el British Museum y la John Hopkins University. El más completo de todos, el de la Biblioteca Hertziana, carece de la dedicatoria al rey de la primera entrega de Leonardo. Después estaría el que ofrecemos, que únicamente carece de la portada de la entrega de Leonardo y de la dedicatoria del estudio de los Caracci a las hijas del rey. Tras él, estaría el ejemplar del British Museum al que, aunque desordenado, solo falta un grabado: el Ecce Homo de Reni. Tras ellos estaría (.). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Contemporary sheep, with red morocco label on the upper cover, tooled in gilt, neatly rebacked, with extremities worn. Provenance : Henry Paul Beck (Philadelphia, ownership inscription and annotations); two bookplates on front pastedown A remarkable sammelband, comprising three works relating to the physical geography of Philadelphia. Most notable is the restrike of the famed Holme map of Philadelphia, which was published with the first title but is almost always missing. Thomas Holme was named Surveyor-General of the new colony of Pennsylvania by Penn in 1682, and produced this map, entitled A Portraiture of the city of Philadelphia in the province of Pennsylvania , the following year. The map is a notorious rarity of American cartography. "This printed map is the first to depict an English colonial North American town and is of considerable importance" (Burden). The first three states of the map were all printed in London in 1683 by the Quaker printer Andrew Sowle, and are distinguished by minor variants in the imprint. In the 1790's the original engraving plate was brought to Philadelphia, where, with slight alterations and added information, this fourth state was printed. The advertisement leaf following the titlepage explains: "For the Portraiture of the City, in the Appendix, the editor is indebted to Dr. George Logan, of Stenton, who is in possession of the original plate, from which the impression was taken." Logan was a direct descendant of James Logan, who was effectively the Penn family representative in America from about 1699 until his death in 1751. Because the the date of the accompanying text, the present printing of the fourth state is usually dated 1812. The original printing plate is now at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania. Philadelphia was the first city in colonial America to be laid out beforehand on a plan. Penn felt that it was important to plan the city in such a manner to prevent the spread of disease and fire, which constantly plagued the crowded cities of Europe, and was eager to advertise the logical arrangement of his new settlement with a published map. Holme's map, anticipating streets and squares yet to be laid out, it would prove to be a source of later disputes. Nonetheless, it was an accurate enough reflection of reality 130 years after the founding of the city to serve as a current map. The second title discusses a plan for dealing with malaria in Philadelphia by providing better drainage into the Delaware River. it is notable for the striking folding panorama of the waterfront from Dock Street to Market St. which accompanies it, showing the new wharf buildings and docks proposed as civic improvements. Stephen Girard, whose last will and testament is the subject of the third work, supervised the conversion of a Philadelphia mansion into a hospital during the yellow fever epidemic of 1793. He stayed in Philadelphia to help nurse the sick and dying while many other prominent Philadelphians fled the city. Interestingly, Girard's will, in which he left millions to found Girard College, a boarding school for orphans, was contested by family in France but was eventually upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1844. This volume was probably bound together by Philadelphian Henry Paul Beck, whose contemporary bookplate is on the front pastedown. Beck has extensively annotated parts of Lowber's text with his views on details of the administration of the city. He has also annotated the Holme map by writing on the names of the streets (as of 1812) in the right margin.

        A New and Elegant General Atlas. Comprising all the new discoveries, to the present time. Containing sixty three maps, drawn by Arrowsmith and Lewis

      Boston: Published by Thomas & Andrews, 1812. Quarto. (10 5/8 x 9 inches). Letterpress title (verso blank), 1p. list of maps (verso blank). 63 engraved maps (2 folding). Expertly bound to style in calf-backed contemporary marbled paper-covered boards, flat spine in six compartments divided by fillets, lettered in the second compartment Provenance: Henry Roice (contemporary signature on the front pastedown) Nice copy of a scarce early American atlas, with an important early mapping of the American West. The first edition of this atlas was published in Philadelphia in 1804. American mapmaker Samuel Lewis had formed a partnership with English mapmaker Aaron Arrowsmith to publish an atlas to accompany editions of Morse's American Geography, which had been criticized for its poor illustrations. The atlas, as the title page infers, was a separate production could be used with any gazetteer or geographical work. Phillips lists further editions of 1805, 1812 and 1819. According to Ristow, all editions contain the same maps. Almost half of the maps in the atlas are of American interest: in addition to the two folding world maps at the front, maps 29-59 are of the Americas, with maps 31-50 being of individual States or Territories. Of note are four maps of importance to the American West, titled: North America, Louisiana, British Possessions in America and Spanish Possessions in North America (cf. Wheat, Mapping the Transmississippi West 259, 260, 261 & 262). The map titled Louisiana, which is based on the Soulard mapping, is of particular importance, depicting the region west of the Mississippi explored by Lewis and Clark. "The Samuel Lewis map was the primary map of the newly purchased territory of Louisiana and its surroundings and, as such, reflected the shaped American popular geographical images of the western interior at the time of Lewis and Clark" (Mapping the West, p. 80). Phillips, Atlases 718; Ristow pp.265-266; Rumsey 2436 (1804 first edition).

Zt. mit farb. Deckelschild. Nach der Neugründung der Universität 1803 erlebte Heidelberg eine zweite Blütezeit und zog Studenten und junge Künstler aus ganz Deutschland an. Sie beschrieben das zerstörte Schloss als Sinnbild deutscher Geschichte und verewigten den Bau in ihren Gemälden, romantischen Geschichten oder Versen. Die bekanntesten Namen aus der Zeit sind Carl Philipp Fohr, Karl Rottmann und Ernst Fries, Achim von Arnim, Clemens Brentano, Friedrich Hölderlin und Joseph von Eichendorff. Selbst Johann Wolfgang von Goethe schwärmte in seinen Tagebüchern, Aufzeichnungen und Skizzen von der Ruine, der Stadt und der Landschaft. ? Der emigrierte französische Graf Charles de Graimberg (1774-1864) war ein vor der Revolution nach Deutschland geflüchteter Royalist. Er wurde zum Retter der Schlossruine. Er war der Erste, der sich um die Erhaltung der Ruine bemühte. Graimberg dokumentierte das Schloss in zahlreichen Detailzeichnungen. ? Das hier vorliegende Album legt davon Zeugnis ab. Der Schwerpunkt der Darstellungen liegt bei Detailzeichnungen des Heidelberger Schlosse. Das Album zeigt neben verschiedenen Gesamtansichten: Ansicht des achteckigen Thurms von der Gallerie, Ansicht des gesprengten Thurms, Ansicht eines Thores von der Gartenseite, Ansicht des Heidelberger Schlosses vom Fuße des Friesenberges, Ansicht vom Ausgange des letzten Gewölbes beym Herabsteigen vom H.

        The Tatler, The Spectator, and The Guardian

      London: John Sharpe, 1812, 1803-1813, 1814-1815. Fourteen small octavo volumes: the Tatler complete in four volumes, the Spectator complete in eight volumes, and the Guardian complete in two volumes. Full contemporary calf gilt, elaborately tooled, raised bands, red and green spine labels, marbled endpapers and edges. Early owner bookplates. Foxing to engraved plates, text clean. Lightest shelfwear to bindings. Complete edition of the three great coffee-house periodicals produced by Joseph Addison and Richard Steele, first published between 1709 and 1714. The Tatler, the Spectator, and the Guardian targeted (and to some degree, created) the rising London middle class, both men and women, offering readers an exemplary mix of ethical inquiry, philosophical speculation, and domestic advice: "When you see a man of sense look about for applause, and discover an itching inclination to be commended; lay traps for a little incense, even from those whose opinion he values in nothing but his own favour; who is safe against this weakness? Or who knows whether he is guilty of it or not?" The regular appearance of letters to the editor, a novel feature, encouraged readers to consider themselves part of a larger public conversation. The influence of Addison and Steele's essays extended far beyond the five years in which they first appeared. They were reprinted and emulated throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries; Benjamin Franklin, in his autobiography, recalls teaching himself to write essays as a boy by attempting to reproduce from memory what he read in the third volume of the Spectator. A near-fine set, splendidly bound by Simms of Manchester.

To Which Are Now Added, Considerable Improvements. Philadelphia: Published by Johnson and Warner, and Samuel R. Fisher, 1812. Three volumes. Octavo (9" x 5-1/2"). Contemporary calf, blind fillets to boards, blind rules and red and black lettering pieces to spine. Light rubbing and some scratches to boards, moderate rubbing to extremities, some chipping to spine ends of Volumes I and II, joints and hinges of all volumes cracked or starting, all boards secure, endpaper of Volume II torn. Light toning to text, somewhat heavier in places. Early owner signature and stamp of (N.J. Wyeth of Staten Island) to preliminaries and endleaves, interior otherwise clean. Set housed in lightly shelfworn cloth slipcase. A solid set. * First American edition, from the sixteenth London edition, 1809. Text is unpaged with English and French (or Latin) texts in parallel columns. The first Institutes, better known as Coke on Littleton, contains the text of Sir Thomas Littleton's Tenures with extensive commentary. First published in 1628, it was a standard work for decades and was often used as a textbook.

An seinen Mitarbeiter Isaac Wolfsberger (1812-1876), dem er zur Erhebung zum Hauptmann gratuliert: „Mon cher Volfschberger, Je pense qu’il vous sera agréable d’appren- dre que le Conseil féd. de la guerre, dans sa séance de ce jour, vous a mis en présentation pour le grade de Capitaine. L’affaire n’est pas encore faite; mais, comme il ne s’agit plus que d’une simple formalité et que la signature n’a jamais été refusée aux propositions d’un chef de Corps, je pense que vous vous pouvez déjà ôter le fil de vos épaulettes [ ]" - Wolfsberger galt als einer der besten Zeichner an Dufours Kartenwerk, bei dessen Realisierung er entscheidende Vereinfachungen einführte.

        The Memoirs of Janetta; A Tale, Alas! Too True!

      Gainsborough: Printed for the Author by Henry Mozley 1812 - FIRST EDITION, a little browned at the beginning, scattered foxing, pp. 263, 8vo, uncut, disbound, good. A very rare book, a tale of riches to rags, published by subscription for Mrs. Norweb when she was in her 70s, residing in the the Almshouse of Brigg in Lincolnshire. A review of the volume (which also summarises the story) can be found in the Gentleman's Magazine for May 1717. The only copies we have been able to locate are 2 in the British Library: the WorldCat location of Toronto turns out to be POD. The paper covering the spine, a little defective at either end, could be the remains of original wrappers, rather than a lining beneath a one-time binding.

Very minor staining; creased at folds with very small perforation to central portion of first leaf, slightly affecting "d" of "disporre." . Paisiello was "one of the most successful and influential opera composers of the late 18th century... [his] popularity was at its height in the last two decades of the 18th century. During that period his dramatic works were as much in demand outside Italy as within it. In Vienna, for example, the Italian opera company installed by Joseph II performed during the 1780s more works by Paisiello than by any other single composer. Londoners too were particularly partial to his operas. The decline in the demand for his music, which became noticeable everywhere after about 1800, was a sign that taste had changed. The works that retained their popularity longest were his best comic operas, including Il barbiere di Siviglia, L?'amor contrastato and Nina... Promoters have revived a few of his operas in the late 20th century, kindling a renewed flicker of public interest." Michael F. Robinson in Grove Music Online. Raffaeli Mattioli (1775?-after 1831) was a Neapolitan painter. His works include the Oath of the Romans before the Law and the Death of Hector. He also painted figures for productions at the Teatro San Carlo in Naples.

        THE STAR, A WEEKLY JOURNAL OF NEWS, POLITICKS, LITERATURE, AND THE USEFUL ARTS, FOR THE YEAR 1812. VOLUME IV.

      Raleigh. 1812.. [4],208pp. Folio. Original half calf and paper boards. Boards heavily worn, some chipping, joints partially split. A few short tears to text, long closed tear to one leaf, first few and last few leaves with heavy creasing, moderate foxing and tanning. A complete copy in good condition. A rare collection of this important Southern periodical, with all fifty- two weekly issues, four pages each, from 1812. THE STAR was a unique enterprise, a North Carolina newspaper that set out to print solid news instead of focusing on rumors or "stud horse advertisements." One of the editors' main intentions was to provide a platform for the advancement of agricultural interests in the state. The man who would be responsible for the success of the newspaper over its first fifteen years was Thomas Henderson, Jr., a North Carolina native who had printed newspapers since at least 1806. After he moved to Raleigh in 1807, Henderson formed a partnership with Dr. Calvin Jones to publish THE STAR. Their goal, stated in an announcement in the rival newspaper, the Raleigh REGISTER, was to "pursue a firm yet liberal line of conduct, often giving facts, more seldom opinions, and those ever so candid and dispassionate; solicitous always to stifle the baneful spirit of faction, and looking with a single eye to the happiness and honour of United America." To the modern sensibility, the high-minded motives and intentions of the editors of THE STAR pale in comparison to the printed record of the business of slavery that survives in the newspaper's pages. Each issue contains multiple advertisements for slave auctions, rewards for the capture of runaway slaves, and notices of slaves caught and held in jails awaiting retrieval from their masters. Most of the runaway slave notices feature a small engraved image of a fleeing African-American beside the text. Rewards for runaway slaves vary from as little as $10 to as much as $100, depending on the slave's skill set, and the rancor of the master. Many ads run for weeks at a time, sometimes using stronger language with each subsequent week. The July 10, 1812 issue lists a $100 reward for a runaway slave that encapsulates the tone of most of the slavery notices in the STAR: "Ranaway from the subscriber on the 6th of March last, a mulatto man by the name of Jack, well built, about five feet five or six inches high, 28 eight years of age, a tolerable shoe maker, and has been much in the habit of driving a wagon -- He has a scar on his forehead and a part of one of his upper foreteeth is broken off, one of his wrists broke and crooked, and his right leg pretty much shot with small shot which will shew very plainly." The advertisment continues for almost two column inches, and provides details of Jack's suspected whereabouts and that he has been passing as a free man by the name of John Revill. The original subscriber, Levi Whitted, placing the ad lives in Knoxville, and he is requesting the ad run for six more weeks. In addition to a wealth of information on the institution of slavery, this run of THE STAR also contains a voluminous amount of reports of naval battles between the United States and the British and other news at the outset of the War of 1812. Several issues towards the end of the year have a column devoted to the conflict, called "The War," with various reports and letters from combatants. An important Southern newspaper with rich content on slavery, the War of 1812, contemporary politics and literature, and the Southern way of life in the early 19th century. William S. Powell.

        NEW TRAVELS AMONG THE INDIANS OF NORTH AMERICA; BEING A COMPILATION, TAKEN PARTLY FROM THE COMMUNICATIONS ALREADY PUBLISHED, OF CAPTAINS LEWIS AND CLARK TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES; AND PARTLY FROM OTHER AUTHORS WHO TRAVELLED AMONG THE VARIOUS TRIBES OF INDIANS WITH A DICTIONARY OF THE INDIAN TONGUE

      Philadelphia, 1812. Contemporary calf, rebacked, gilt leather label. Corners heavily worn, boards scuffed. Light to moderate toning and soiling throughout. Good. The second American printing of the so-called "Apocrypha edition" of Lewis and Clark, bearing the name of compiler William Fisher on the titlepage. In response to the growing curiosity of the public regarding the findings of Lewis and Clark, and the delay in publication of the "authorized account" of their expedition, this compilation of bits and pieces from already published works appeared (culled from Gass, Clark, Mackenzie, Carver, and Jefferson's Message of 1806), misleading the reader into believing it was the account sanctioned by the government and containing all the information gathered during the journey. Howes calls this the "spurious" edition, while Sabin states it contains material not published in any other edition. The work originally appeared in Philadelphia and London in 1809, followed by German printings in 1811 and 1812. A Baltimore edition also appeared in 1812, but Howes gives precedence to the Philadelphia printing. Howes mentions that some copies of this work contain a second titlepage, as in the present copy.

        Jurisprudence ou Medecine Legale Veterinaire. Paris?, 1812

      1812 - French Manuscript Treatise on Veterinary Law [Manuscript]. [Veterinary Law]. [Brabant, Philippe]. Jurisprudence ou Medecine Legale Veterinaire. Paris?, 1812. 481 pp. Quarto (7-1/4" x 5-3/4"). Contemporary sheep, morocco lettering pieces (reading Jurisprudence Veterinaire/ Brabant Philippe) and gilt ornaments to spine, marbled edges and endpapers. Moderate rubbing to extremities, some scuffing to boards, corners bumped and somewhat worn, hinges cracked, a few cracks to text block. Text in clear hand, light toning, foxing and staining in places. * This appears to be a fair copy, with indexes, of an unpublished treatise on the civil and criminal laws relating to the keeping, care, and sale of animals and the statutory duties of veterinary surgeons in Napoleonic France. The author opens his work with a survey of the state of veterinary jurisprudence as a science in the wake of the 1806 reorganization of French education and describing its history as a discipline, drawing attention to his own work, published in 1801, on poisons and the vaccination of sheep and goats. The rest of the text is divided into four parts. The first describes the correct procedure for writing reports for the use of police and the courts. The second deals with matters relating to redhibition (analogous to present-day lemon laws) in the sale of animals, describing the grounds on which animals can be rejected and the particular defects and diseases that can lead to their rejection. The third section turns to criminal law, principally that relating to the poisoning of livestock; this includes a substantial appendix detailing the various poisons used on animals, ranging from mushrooms to hellebores, and covers both deliberate poisoning and cases of negligence. In the fourth and final section, the author turns to various means of combating contagious diseases among livestock, the roles of authorities in cases of epizootics, and the legal responsibilities of farmers and the police medicale. Throughout, we find case histories from France and elsewhere, notes on the experiences of other writers, and personal observations. Every section provides instruction about the legal obligations of the veterinary surgeon, as set out in the code of 1804. The identity of the author remains unclear, as does that of his 1801 work mentioned; the lettering piece on [Attributes: Hard Cover]
