        Dictionnaire chinois, français et latin, publié d'après l'ordre de sa Majesté l'Empereur et Roi Napoléon le Grand ; par M. De Guignes, résident de France à la Chine, attaché au Ministère des relations extérieures, correspondant de la première et de la troisième classe de l'Institut.

      A Paris, de l'Imprimerie impériale, 1813. 1813 1 vol. fort in-folio (460 x 308 mm.) de : [3] ff. (Faux-titre, Titre, "Traduction en langue européenne des caractères chinois"), lvi (Introduction, Tableau de l'orthographe et de la prononciation, Préface, Méthode pour trouver les caractères au moyen de la table des deux cent quatorze clefs, Table des deux cent quatorze clefs), 1112 pp., [1] f. (Errata). Demi-vélin à coins ancien, dos lisse, pièce de titre de maroquin rouge, plats recouverts de papier marbré, tranches marbrées. (Quelques rares rousseurs marginales et salissures, trace de mouillure marginale sur une dizaine de feuillets, discrète restauration aux 3 premiers feuillets. Assez frais.) Première édition de cet ouvrage majeur, le premier dictionnaire de ce type publié en France, qui marque une grande avancée dans les progrès des connaissances occidentales de la Chine. Louvrage, chef duvre de typographie, est impressionnant, et sa publication le fait de différents acteurs. Finalement publié en 1813 sous le patronage de Napoléon Ier, sa création avait été entreprise dès 1715. Bien que la page de titre ne le mentionne pas, le présent ouvrage sappuie essentiellement sur le travail de Basile de Glemona Brollo (1648-1704) qui écrivit le premier dictionnaire chinois/latin lisible. Son ouvrage, composé à Nan King entre 1694 et 1699 décrivait quelques 7 000 idéogrammes et en traduisait environ 9 000. Circulant sous sa forme manuscrite, il fut longtemps un outil indispensable pour les premiers sinologues européens, mais malgré quelques tentatives, aucune publication naboutit au 17ème siècle, les éditeurs étant découragés par le coût dune telle entreprise. Au 18ème siècle, à la demande de Louis XIV, Arcade Hoange, Chinois, assisté par Etienne Fourmont, entreprit de réaliser une grammaire et un dictionnaire chinois. Fourmont présenta en 1719 la première étape de leur travail : la table des 214 clefs, au régent qui lautorisa à faire graver tous les caractères nécessaires. A sa mort en 1745, les quelques 110 000 caractères quil a fait graver reviennent à la Bibliothèque du Roi. En 1802, ils sont versés à la Bibliothèque impériale mais le projet na pas encore pris de forme définitive. En 1808, cette publication est remise à lordre du jour. On pense la confier à Antonio Montucci de Sienne, mais pour que lofficialisation de cette uvre, commanditée par Louis XIV fut française, on sadressa à Guignes qui reçut par décret lordre de rédigé et de suivre la publication du Dictionnaire français-latin-chinois. Chrétien-Louis-Joseph de Guignes (1758-1845), fils dun autre sinologue de premier rang, vécut, travailla et voyagea en Chine pendant 17 ans. Il fut le traducteur dIsaac Titsingh, lambassadeur hollandais à la cour de lEmpereur Quianlong de 1794 à 1795. Les membres de la mission de Titsingh étaient les seuls occidentaux acceptés en Chine à la fin de la dynastie Quianlong. Il est également lauteur dun guide de voyage intitulé « Voyages à Peking, Manille et l'île de France, faits dans l'intervalle des années 1784 à 1801 ». Pour la rédaction du présent ouvrage, il était convenu quil utiliserait les caractères gravés par Fourmont. Pour laider dans son travail, on lui confia un exemplaire manuscrit du Vocabulaire Chinois-Latin de Basilio de Gemona, ce texte, le Han-Tsé-sin-Yih (Interprétation occidentale des caractères chinois) étant considéré comme le meilleur lexique composé par des Missionnaires en Chine. De Guignes se contenta de donner les traductions françaises, et supervisa lédition du texte de Gemona avec les caractères de Fourmont quil fit paraître sous le titre de Dictionnaire chinois, français et latin, en passant sous silence le nom du véritable auteur. En 1814, Abel-Remusat et Klaproth reconnurent le travail de Gemona et permirent quon rendît justice à son travail. Malgré la controverse, De Guignes fut élu membre de lInstitut de France, de lAcadémie des Sciences (Géographie et Navigation) et de lAcadémie des Inscriptions et des Belles Lettres. Très bel exemplaire de cet ouvrage de référence, chef duvre de typographie du 19ème siècle.Provenance : Admiralty Library (cachet annulé sur la page de titre et au dernier feuillet). 1 vol. folio. Ancient half vellum. First edition of this important work, the first dictionary of this kind published in France and an important work in the development of Western scholarship on China. Although given no credit in the book, the dictionary is actually a re-edit of work compiled by the Franciscan friar, Basilio de Glemona Brollo (1648-1704) during his thirty years of missionary work in China in the seventeenth-century. His work was considered among the finest of the Missionary lexicons. Chretien-Louis-Joseph de Guignes (1759-1845), listed on the title-page as the sole author, was in fact only responsible for the editing and the French translations of the ideograms. The dictionary is an impressive piece of typography containing over 13,000 woodcut Chinese characters. Fine copy. Cordier, BS 1589 ; Zaunmüller 42 ; Lust 1037 (Basilio de Glemona).

Edition originale de cette étude, la première sur "l'art du patinage", illustrée d'un frontispice et de 6 planches hors-texte (sur 7) gravées par Ambroise Tardieu.Le frontispice représente une patinoire: "Les plaisirs de la Glacière", les autres des patineurs accomplissant des figures sportives.Dès le XIVe, le patin à glace devint une pratique récréative aux Pays-Bas, puis sportive dès le XVIIIe en Angleterre et en France."Ainsi la cour de Louis XV s'exerce sur les pièces d'eaux gelées du château de Versailles et l'on dit que Marie Antoinette était une habile patineuse (...). Dans [ce] traité, Jérôme Garcin décrit avec force détails cette façon d'évoluer avec élégance sur la glace et souligne la complexité technique des enchaînements des figures" (cf. Yves Morales, Une histoire culturelle des Sports d'Hiver, p. 31 sq.).L'ouvrage contient, en fin, un répertoire du "Vocabulaire des mots techniques de l'art du Patin" (4 p.).Garcin serait également l'inventeur du patin à roulettes (cf. Y. Morales).(Fred W. Foster, A Bibliography of Skating, p. 35). Quelques petits défauts de papiers et quelques auréoles claires.Bon exemplaire, tel que paru, entièrement non rogné..

En 1802, le vicomte George Valentia s'embarqua pour les Indes orientales, avec Henry Salt (dessinateur, archéologue-amateur et collectionneur d'antiquités égyptiennes) qui l'accompagna en qualité de « secrétaire ». Valentia était à la tête de la première mission britannique en Abyssinie, destinée à conclure une alliance pour obtenir un port en Mer Rouge, dans le cas où la France napoléonienne semparerait de lEgypte, ménageant ainsi une issue par louest à la Grande-Bretagne. Ils parcoururent pendant quatre années et quatre mois une grande partie de l'Inde, Ceylan, les bords de la Mer Rouge, l'Abyssinie et l'Égypte. La côte occidentale de la Mer Rouge, l'Abyssinie et ses pays voisins n'étant connus que très imparfaitement, le vicomte Valentia proposa d'en faire un état précis dans l'espoir d'y établir des échanges commerciaux. Première véritable mission officielle anglaise, le gouverneur général de l'Inde anglaise mit à sa disposition un vaisseau et un équipage. Henry Salt réalisa les dessins doù sont tirées les planches de louvrage, et publia la même année et sous son nom, une suite de lithographies en couleurs intitulée : « Twenty-Four Views in St. Helena, the Cape, India, Ceylon, the Red Sea, Abyssinia and Egypt ».

        Reglamento para el exercicio y maniobras de la infantería. De las evoluciones de línea.

      [colophon: Cadiz: en la Imprenta Tormentaria á cargo de Juan Domingo Villegas 8vo (21.5 cm; 8.125"). [2], 281?385, 15 pp., fold. plts. numbered xxxix ?lxviii.. 1813] At the base of the title-page of this infantry manual is printed "Reimpreso por disposicion del . . . señor don Carlos Doyle, teniente general de los reales exercitos." => That is, Lt. Gen. Charles William Doyle (1770?1842) ordered this work to be printed. Doyle was an Irish-born British lieutenant-colonel who in 1808 was ordered to Portugal to help fight Napoleon in the Peninsular Campaign. He very successfully aided the Spanish army in instilling discipline and organizing light infantry and was made a lieutenant general in the Spanish army. In 1811 Britain ordered him home, but when he reached Cadiz, Sir Henry Wellesley convinced him to command a camp at which a new army was being organized for action in the south of Spain. Again he was highly successful in his military instruction of new troops, and as a result was promoted to full colonel in the British army; he remained in Spain till the end of the war in 1814. The present work, extracted from the larger one of the same title printed at Madrid by the Imprenta Real in 1808, was clearly printed for the instruction of Doyle's southern army. At the rear of the volume are => 30 folding plates setting forth various dispositions and movements of infantry troops; clear, careful, verbal explanations of these precede them. Searches of NUC, WorldCat, and the CCPBE locate => only three copies worldwide (all in Spain). Provenance: Contemporary signature of "Velez" on title-page. Dark brown speckled calf, black gilt-lettered title-label (a little chipped) to gilt-ruled spine, marbled endpapers; binding lightly rubbed. Age-toning and general light soiling, occasionally a dog-ear or a spot, all plates clean, well-attached, and whole at folds. => A very sound, very good copy.

        Pianta di Verona.

      1813. Manoscritto eseguito ad acquerello policromo, mm 450x590. Raro foglio manoscritto di grande formato raffigurante una pianta della città eseguita, secondo lo stile del periodo, con estrema precisione e realismo. Il 1813, anno di esecuzione del manoscritto, è l'ultimo anno di presenza francese a Verona. Il 4 febbraio 1814 gli austriaci rientrano in città da liberatori, dopo che, in seguito al trattato di Luneville del 1801 la città, precedentemente in mano austriaca, grazie al trattato di Campoformio, era stata spartita fra le due potenze con i francesi sulla riva destra dell'Adige (centro città) e gli austriaci sulla sinistra (Veronetta). Si notano nella parte occidentale della città, tutti gli orti ancora presenti all'interno delle mura. In basso a destra è firmata "Lorenzo Canestran veronese fece nel 1813" e riporta una legenda con 35 rimandi su tre colonne. Il disegno occupa tutto il foglio che non ha quindi margini. Nonostante un accenno di umidità, visibile soprattutto al verso, ma anche in alto a sinistra, il foglio si presenta integro e perfettamente leggibile oltre che assai fascinoso

        BOOK OF WONDERS [SOUTHCOTT BOOK OF WONDERS VOLUMES 1-5, BOUND TOGETHER; BOUND WITH FOUR SOUTHCOTT PAMPHLETS]

      London; Printed By Marchant And Galabin, Ingram-Court, 1813-1814. Later half calf. 8vo. 88; 116; 64; 80; 72; 64; 48; 24; 40 pages. 22 cm. First edition. A collection of Joanna Southcott?s last writings. Nine volumes, from the same printer, same writer (s) , bound together, including: ?The book of wonders, marvellous and true? 1813; ?The second book of wonders, more marvellous than the first?, 1813; ?The third book of wonders, announcing the coming of Shiloh: with a call to the Hebrews, from Isaiah xi, ?And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a branch shall grow out of his roots. ? Revelation xxii. 16, 17, ?I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. ? Here is the call to the Jews, to answer, how they will expect the branch, without the root, whom they cut off, and set at nought? 1814; ?The fourth book of wonders: being the answer of the Lord to the Hebrews?, 1814; ?The fifth book of wonders: announcing the event having taken place, which was promised in the fourth book should be in May: with a further explanation of the four former books ; also an answer to the address of the Rev. James Hearn, Curate of Brixham, Devon; and to the mockery of others?, 1814; and four pamphlets: ?Copies of letters sent to the clergy of Exeter, from 1796 to 1800, with communications and prophecies put in the newspapers in 1813?; ?Wisdom excelleth the weapons of war: and herein is shewn that judgments are the strange works of the Lord, but mercy His darling attribute?, 1814; ?A communication sent in a letter to the Reverend Mr. P. In 1797, with an explanation thereon now given?, 1814; ?Prophecies announcing the birth of the Prince of Peace?, 1814. All publications ?Printed by W. Marchant, Ingram Court?, and end on this note "The above taken from Joanna Southcott's mouth, by me, Ann Underwood. " Nine publications by Joanna Southcott (1750-1814) , prophet and writer, who started the Southcottian movement with her phrophecies, gaining many adherents from Richard Brothers after his arrest: ?One of the most significant of her London converts was Jane Townley, who not only invited Southcott, in April 1804, to become part of her household, but also did all she could to promote Southcott's writings and cause, including providing her maidservant, Ann Underwood, to act as Southcott's accomplished and devoted amanuensis. With the steadfast assistance of Foley, Sharp, and others, the three women became the nerve centre for the Southcottian movement, which generated an astonishing degree of interest, correspondence, and debate regarding Southcott's prophetic claims. Between 1801 and 1814, Southcott published some sixty-five pamphlets, totalling almost 5000 pages; moreover, her unpublished manuscripts amount to twice the number of pages in print. By one conservative estimate, a total of 108, 000 copies of her various works were published and circulated from 1801 to 1816, making her one of the most popular writers of her time (Hopkins, 84) . One reason for the immediate appeal of her texts is their unique mix of apocalyptic optimism with down-to-earth narratives about everyday life, which she converts to spiritual account. ? In 1814 Southcott carried the claim to a new level when she announced that she was about to become the mother of Shiloh, the name given to the expected divine incarnation. The revelation was made explicit in The Third Book of Wonders, Announcing the Coming of Shiloh (1814) , and Prophecies Announcing the Birth of the Prince of Peace (1814) , which collected extractions from earlier writings that seemed to anticipate this new revelation. ? After Southcott's death the movement splintered and prophets of Shiloh proliferated, among which John Ward's Shilohites and John Wroe's Christian Israelites were the most prominent. A core of her inner circle kept the faith quietly, remaining loyal to Southcott's work, as signified by their protection of the ?great box?, which contained the sealed prophecies that were to be opened some time in the unspecified future by the bishops. ? (Oxford National Biography, 2004) . Bound in half calf with marbled boards, with gilt title on spine. Subjects: Prophecies. Southcott Movement ? Prior to 1815. OCLC lists less than 23 copies per each of these publications included in this bound collection. Light wear to leather. Light foxing and light soiling to a few pages throughout, overall, fresh and clean. Very good + condition. (KH-1-46)

      Gustavus Vasa, and Other Poems. Second edition. London, Longman, Hurst. Rees, Orme, and Brown, 1813. 8:o. xxvii,+ (blank),+ 230,+ (34) s. Lätta lagerfläckar. Fint samtida mönsterpressat brunt skinnband, rikt guldornerad rygg med blå titeletikett, pärmarna med förgyllt ramtryck, inre bordure och stänkmarmorerade snitt. Ur Earl Hugh Cecil of Landsdale bibliotek på Lowhter Castle, med hans ståtliga exlibris och med förgyllt monogram på pärmarna, och med Robert J. Hayhursts exlibris. Fint exemplar av detta epos om Gustav Vasa i homerisk stil. Första upplagan utkom samma år. De båda upplagorna förklaras av den stora mängden subskribenter, som överraskade den 17-årige författaren. Stackars William Sidney Walker (1795-1846) startade mycket lovande. Efter skolgång i sin farbrors skola i Doncaster kom han 1811 till Eton och fick 1814 en stipendieplats till Trinity College i Cambridge. Han fick i Cambridge priser för sina latinpoem, flera stipendier och ansågs mycket lovande. 1824 misslyckades han dock att få en professorstjänst i grekiska och sedan gick allt fel. Han avslutade sin akademiska karriär och flyttade till London, skuldsatte sig och isolerade sig allt mer och dog utblottad endast 51 år gammal. Enligt förordet började han förbereda detta mäktiga epos om Gustav Vasa redan vid 11 års ålder och nu, vid 17-års ålder, kunde han tack vare den generösa mängden subskribenter ge ut dessa första fyra sånger, som återfinns på sidorna 1-137: "The Swede I sing, by Heaven ordain'd to save/ His country's glories from a Danish grave,/ Restore her laws, her Papal rites efface,/ And fix her freedom on a lasting base." Eposet om Gustav Vasa har även 32 sidor med kommentarer på slutet. Dessa innehåller även synopsis för de ytterligare planerade 5:e till 10:e sångerna om Gustav Vasas äventyr! Som källor till dikten hade han Vertot och Pufendorf, den senare dock endast i en engelsk översättning från 1702. Bland dikterna finns för övrigt en översättning av inledningen till 13 sången av Iliaden, en översättning av nionde sången av Klopstocks Messias samt latinska poem.

        Select Poems of Margaret Cavendish Duchess of Newcastle

      Lee Priory , UK: Lee Priory Press, 1813. First edtion. Published at the Press of Lee Priory. Most Lee Priory publications were all limited editions, with most editions having a press run of less than 100 copies. This book was published in a press run of 25 copies. I could find only 2 copies worldwide - one in the British Museum and one in the Library of Scotland. This is an ex library book and has the usual library notations , stamps and a card pouch. There is a small tear at the top of the spine and a tear along the middle of the spine. This would be a nice book to have professionally rebound. With the exception of the listed defects the book is in good to very good condition. The actual book pages are bright , notation and defect free (with the exceptions listed) There is a decorative image on one of the front end sheets which shows light foxing and there is light foxing after this image. This book has the bookplate of Belgian politician Sylvain Van De Weyer inside the front cover. This is a very collectible book. . First Edition. Hard Cover.

        London und Paris (Complete in 24 Vols ) + Paris, Wien und London and Paris und Wien (Complete in 5 Vols )

      Weimar, Germany: Halle und Rudolstadt, 1813. Hardcover. Very Good. James Gillray et al.. A very scarce example of this complete set, an exhaustive study of late 18th/early 19th century London, Paris --and, finally, Vienna. Published in Weimar, Germany, the text thruout is supplemented by an astounding array of fold-out plates (most of which were created and hand-colored by the leading caricaturists and illustrators of the day, such as Britain's James Gillray). The first 24 volumes (comprising all of "London und Paris", 1798-1810) consist of 268 copper plates (228 of which are fold-outs) and of those, 143 are hand-colored. In the remaining 5 volumes ("Paris, Wien und London" and "Paris und Wien", 1811-1813), there are 42 copper plates (25 of which are fold-outs) and of these, 10 are hand-colored. The set appears in its original bindings (unprinted gray boards) and every volume has its original decorative title-label at the spine. In each case, the spine labels have held up nicely and boast bright gilt-lettering. There is some minor water-staining to a number of the volumes. A little more than half of the 29 volumes show anywhere from minute (in most cases) to moderate staining along the spines. Very few of the front or rear covers are affected (only 3 of the volumes show staining here) and only several of the volumes have noticeable staining to the text (with only a very small handful of plates affected at all). Even with the staining, the set merits a solid VG (with no writing or markings to speak of, beyond light, forgiveable foxing) and remains very impressive and imposing. Uniform 12 mos, one of the great records of social and cultural machinations at the dawn of 19th century London, Paris and Vienna. (Kirchner 1770, Die Schwester 1279a, Hayn-Gotendorf IV, 246). This set is included in the permanent collections at the Library of the British Museum and the Austrian National Library.

Bonne édition très augmentée, et en partie originale. Fr. N. Appert quelques temps confiseur près de Paris, gagna par son procédé de stérilisation et de conservation le prix proposé par Napoléon pour trouver une solution à la conservation des aliments pour les militaires. Mais les conditions du prix l'obligèrent à divulguer son procédé, ce qu'il fit par la présente publication. Il exploita quelques temps son brevet, mais finalement ruiné, il mourut pauvre. Toutefois les conserves connurent un énorme succès et suscitèrent la création d'industries. Tout d'abord conditionnées dans des récipients en verre, elles furent peu à peu mises dans des boîtes en fer-blanc soudé. Appert anticipe les travaux de Pasteur par sa méthode de stérilisation, et ce dernier reconnut lui-même que la "Pasteurisation" n'était rien d'autre qu'un perfectionnement de la méthode de F. N. Appert. ¶ Vicaire 35 - Bitting p.14 - Bulloch Hist. of Bacteriology, p. 44 "With his method Appert demonstrated practically the process of pasteurization, nearly fifty years before its scientific explanation" - En Français dans le texte n°220 - Oberlé n°184.

        CON FECHA DE 26 DE JULIO ULTIMO ME DICE EL SENOR SECRETARIO DE ESTADO Y DEL DESPACHO DE LA GOBERNACION DE ULTRAMAR LO SIGUIENTE [caption title]

      Havana, 1813. [1]p. plus integral blank. Folio. Old fold lines. Moderately chipped and worn at edges. Evenly tonned. Contemporary manuscript notations. Good. A rare Havana imprint. As Spanish power in the New World was waning, its grip on Cuba was threatened by domestic and foreign intruders. This decree, issued by Fernando VII on June 17, 1813 and printed on September 20, orders the annulment of all criminal cases. This amnesty policy, extended to other areas of New Spain as well, sought to placate opposition forces. It calls on all levels of government to announce and enforce the decree. It is endorsed in manuscript.

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM JOHN TRUMBULL TO LORD SIDMOUTH, ACCOMPANIED BY TRUMBULL'S NOTES ON THEIR RESULTING CONVERSATION ON THE WAR OF 1812]

      [London], 1813. [3]pp. Both sheets held together with period wax and a seal tamp. Quarto. Very faint old fold lines. Fine. Letter sent by Trumbull to Sidmouth requesting "the honour of a few minutes conversation at any hour which his Lordship shall please to name." The second sheet bears Sidmouth's cordial response, naming the time and place. It does not appear that Trumbull was acting in a kind of official capacity but was, perhaps, merely paying an informal social visit on an influential friend. On the verso of Sidmouth's response, Trumbull has made notes on their conversation. His notes read, in part: "Conversation turned on the destruction of small towns on the Chesapeake. I expressed my high satisfaction that the officers & troops in Canada, instead of retaliating the threats held out in Gen'l Hull's proclamation, of giving no quarters & the conduct of the commanding officer of Fort Niagara, in firing hot balls upon the Village of Newark - had conducted the war with humanity & restrained the savages in a great degree from their usual habits of indiscriminate destruction & burning....His [Lordship] made many professions of gen'l good will to the U.S. - regretted the war which had been forced upon [Great Britain] by the unreasonable pretensions of the [American Government], etc." Trumbull served as John Jay's secretary during the peace negotiations with Britain that followed the American Revolution. Sidmouth had served as a Speaker in the House of Commons during Trumbull's time as Jay's secretary, and the two may have become friendly at that time. Likewise, Trumbull spent significant time in London for his painting career. When Trumbull called on Sidmouth in 1813, Sidmouth was in the beginning of his lengthy term as Britain's Home Secretary. An interesting piece for those interested in both Trumbull and the War of 1812.

        TABULAR STATEMENTS OF THE SEVERAL BRANCHES OF AMERICAN MANUFACTURES, EXHIBITING THEM I. BY STATES, TERRITORIES AND DISTRICTS, II. BY COUNTIES, CITIES, AND TOWNS...IN THE AUTUMN OF THE YEAR 1810...

      Philadelphia: Printed by A. Cornman, 1813. [2],46pp. Quarto. Original blue-grey wrappers. Horizontal crease to center. Light foxing and tanning. Bottom edge of pp.3-4 torn away, costing the list of states, territories, and districts on those pages (though the list is easily accessible from the adjacent pages). Else very good, in original condition. In a cloth clamshell case, leather label. A wealth of economic data on the young American republic, with statistics broken down by state and territory. Includes statistics on the manufacture of cotton and cloth goods, hats, guns, candles, skins, wood products, and much, much more. There is also information on the number and types of industrial machines in use in the various states. Sabin appends a note regarding this title to his description of the third United States Census, though this actually appears to be a stand-alone, privately printed publication, not a government document. However, much of the data seems drawn from the 1810 census. Shaw & Shoemaker and OCLC together locate only two copies, at the American Philosophical Society and the New Hampshire Historical Society. Rare, and providing much useful information. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 29909. OCLC 57274964. SABIN 11663 (note).

        Reglamento para el exercicio y maniobras de la infantería. De las evoluciones de línea.

      [colophon: Cadiz: en la Imprenta Tormentaria á cargo de Juan Domingo Villegas 8vo (21.5 cm; 8.125"). [2], 281–385, 15 pp., fold. plts. numbered xxxix –lxviii.. 1813] At the base of the title-page of this infantry manual is printed "Reimpreso por disposicion del . . . señor don Carlos Doyle, teniente general de los reales exercitos." => That is, Lt. Gen. Charles William Doyle (1770–1842) ordered this work to be printed. Doyle was an Irish-born British lieutenant-colonel who in 1808 was ordered to Portugal to help fight Napoleon in the Peninsular Campaign. He very successfully aided the Spanish army in instilling discipline and organizing light infantry and was made a lieutenant general in the Spanish army. In 1811 Britain ordered him home, but when he reached Cadiz, Sir Henry Wellesley convinced him to command a camp at which a new army was being organized for action in the south of Spain. Again he was highly successful in his military instruction of new troops, and as a result was promoted to full colonel in the British army; he remained in Spain till the end of the war in 1814. The present work, extracted from the larger one of the same title printed at Madrid by the Imprenta Real in 1808, was clearly printed for the instruction of Doyle's southern army. At the rear of the volume are => 30 folding plates setting forth various dispositions and movements of infantry troops; clear, careful, verbal explanations of these precede them. Searches of NUC, WorldCat, and the CCPBE locate => only three copies worldwide (all in Spain). Provenance: Contemporary signature of "Velez" on title-page. Dark brown speckled calf, black gilt-lettered title-label (a little chipped) to gilt-ruled spine, marbled endpapers; binding lightly rubbed. Age-toning and general light soiling, occasionally a dog-ear or a spot, all plates clean, well-attached, and whole at folds. => A very sound, very good copy.
