(AUCTION CATALOGUE: BORROMEO, Antonio Maria, Conte)
After Borromeo's death in 1813, his library was purchased en bloc by Payne and Foss, who sold it by auction through Evans. The catalogue, most interestingly, is written in Italian throughout with its own title-page, the only English sale catalogue in that language. The catalogue was based on Borromeo's own catalogues of 1794 and 1805 but with additional notes marked with three asterisks. It contained the true first edition of the Decameron (GW 4440), bought by Lord Spencer for 121.6.0 pounds, now in the John Rylands Library. Fine copy, priced throughout in a contemporary hand with buyers' and prices realized. Small embossed stamp on titles and elsewhere of the Athenaeum Library, 1850. Bookplates of Wilfred Merton and A.R.A. Hobson. ❧ Gustave Brunet, Dictionnaire de Bibliologie Catholique, col. 560.

CUVIER, Georges
Two engraved plates (both somewhat foxed). xiii, 265, [1] pp. 8vo, cont. speckled half-calf & marbled boards, spine gilt, red leather lettering piece on spine. Edinburgh: W. Blackwood, et al., 1813. First edition. "In 1812 Cuvier published a mammoth five volume work on vertebrate fossils. In a lengthy preliminary discourse, he discussed the implications of fossils for the history of the earth. The preface was quickly translated into English and published as Cuvier's theory of the earth, which indeed it was. Cuvier had studied and mapped the Paris basin, and he argued that the abrupt transition between formations proved that the earth had undergone successive revolutions. The radical change in fossil populations between formations was further evidence of repeated catastrophes. Catastrophism was not a new doctrine, but Cuvier was one of the first to support it by detailed fossil evidence…The Essay was first published in 1813."-Ashworth & Bradley, Theories of the Earth 1644-1830 (Linda Hall Library: 1984), 48-(describing the second ed. of 1815). Nice copy with half-title. ❧ Porter, The Making of Geology, p. 209-this book "became the most popular general account of the Earth in Britain in the 1810s.".

Napoléon I, Emperor of the French (1769-1821).
1813. 490 x 350 mm. Blank form. Naval patent for an unidentified American boat, counter-signed by trade secretary Jean-Baptiste Henry Collin (1776-1837), state secretary Pierre Antoine Noël Bruno comte Daru (1767-1829), naval secretary Denis Decrès (1761-1820), and the director general of customs. Fine document from the age of the Napoleonic Wars, when the English army had occupied the Iberian Peninsula, fighting against Napoléon's troops, and field marshal Wellington was about to commence his final (and ultimately successful) attack. The present letter patent was issued by the French consul in Charlestown, New York, Boston or Baltimore and permitted American ships to move more or less freely toward France. The British warships were blocking the U.S. ports and obstructing American trade with France - one of the causes for the War of 1812, not resolved until December 1814. - Large reinforced tears to folds; slight edge damage, otherwise in good condition. Left edge trimmed, touching the printed text of the counter-leaf.

Latour, Theodor Count Baillet de, Imperial Minister of War (1780-1848).
1813. Folio. 12 pp. Together with a French manuscript of planned troop movements (2 pp.). Very extensive letter by the later Minister of War, then colonel in the 12th Infantry Regiment and assigned to the general staff of field marshal Prince Karl Philipp Schwarzenberg. Latour gives a detailed report of a secret audience with the Emperor, during which they discussed the military situation. Merely three weeks later, on 12 August, Austria was to declare war on France; mid-October was to see the decisive Battle of Leipzig, in which Schwarzenberg led the coalition armies against Napoleon.

[Hanau] [1813-1814] 40 x 55,5 cm, Gouache sur papier contrecollée, cadre de bois. La peinture, gouache sur papier, montre des combats dans une ville probablement allemande en 1813. On peut y distinguer des troupes autrichienne et saxonne (?). Au premier plan un officier blessé sur son cheval est soutenu par un de ses aides de camp. Derrière lui l'infanterie se déplace vers un pont jonché des cadavres. Une partie des maisons est en feu et le ciel est encombré d'une épaisse fumée. La facture naïve et réaliste du tableau nous permet de penser qu'elle est contemporaine des événements et que le peintre a probablement été témoin de la scène. Poignant témoignage partisan de la Campagne d'Allemagne en 1813, dans le style des gouaches du XVIIIe. Le peintre, sans doute autrichien ou bavarois, évoque l'affrontement, après la bataille de Leipzig, entre les troupes de Napoléon et les troupes de la sixième coalition. 43 000 Bavarois et Autrichiens commandés par le général de Wrede avancent au nord du Danube. Ils atteignent Hanau, dans le Grand-Duché de Francfort, bloquant l'itinéraire de Napoléon. Croyant que le gros de l'armée française fait route plus au nord, Wrede pense faire face à seulement 20.000 hommes et déploie ses troupes le long de la Kinzig dont la porte d'Hanau est le seul pont - on en aperçoit l'ouvrage en arrière plan de la scène. Malgré la résistance la supériorité française affaiblit son armée et le 31 octobre, dans l'après-midi, un tireur embusqué vise et blesse de Wrede. La blessure du chef de l'armée bavaroise va décapiter les forces austro-bavaroises et assurer la … [Click Below for Full Description]

GARCIN, J.)
1813. Paris, Chez Delespinasse, Delaunay, Nepveu, Et chez l'Auteur, de l'Imprimerie de J. Gille fils, 1813. With 8 numbered engraved plates. xxiv, 93, (1) pp. 12mo. Contemporary marbled wrappers, uncut, as issued. Foster, Bibliography of Skating, 35. The rare first edition of the first French book describing ice-skating as an artisic and gracious form of moving, emphasizing grace and form, illustrated with 8 engraved plates: one as a frontispiece giving an overall view of a skating rink, engraved by Ambroise Tardieu, and 7 further engravings of individual skaters in a different pose. It is one of the first separate works in any language devoted to ice-skating. The book was published when ice skating became something fashionable to do for the members of the European aristocracy.Garcin, as opposed to the English approach, compared skating with dancing and stressed grace and artistry. The work was dedicated to Mademoiselle Gosselin, principal dancer at the Académie Imperial de Musique. In France, its was Marie-Antoinette who introduced skating to the court, and she seems to have been a rather accomplished skater herself. In England the first club was founded in Scotland, Edinburgh, in 1742, the Edinburgh Skating Club. At the end a short dictionary of ice-skater's terminology is added. The work also gives suggestions as to the choice of skates, how to tie them, and the like; the skaters depicted in various positions have names such as "Le Beau Narcisse", "L'Apollon", l'Adonis", etc. Garcin's work remained unique and was reprinted some 40 years later, when ice-skating started to … [Click Below for Full Description]
