        OEUVRES COMPLETTES DE J. LA FONTAINE, Précédées D'Une Nouvelle Notice sur sa Vie. FABLES.

      Paris Che Lefèvre, Libraire 1814 - 6 volumes. First edition thus. With a profusion of fine copper plate engravings throughout. 8vo, contemporary French polished calf, the spines with wide decorated bands in gilt, separating compartments with quadruple fillet lined panels gilt, two maroon lettering labels gilt, marbled boards, marbled edges and end-leaves. A very handsome and attractive set with fine engravings throughout, some minor evidence of age, very well preserved, clean, tight, and in lovely condition. A FINE PRESENTATION OF THE OEUVRES AND OF FONTAINE’S GREAT FABLES AND OTHER WORKS ACCOMPANIED BY A PROFUSION OF FINE ENGRAVINGS. La Fontaine was famously known as one of the important literary group of the Rue du Vieux Colombier which included Racine, Boileau and Moliere. By the 1680s, he was known as one of the first men of letters in France. The FABLES were especially praised by well-known critics and it were well received by the general public. This issuance represents a very lovely printing of La Fontaine’s cherished fables in the original French. The copper engravings are extremely well executed and add handsomely to the appeal of this edition. The FABLES are accompanied by a brief life of Fontaine and a life of Aesop.

        Picture of Worthing; to which is added an Account of the adjacent Villages, and the Rides and Excursions in its Vicinity. Second Edition. Greatly enlarged, and embellished with plates. In two Volumes. FIRST SEPARATE ACCOUNT OF THE TOWN

      Printed and Sold by William Phillips, Worthing, [and others in London], 1814. Printed and Sold by William Phillips, Worthing, [and others in London], 1814. 2 vols., in 1, 12mo., Second and Best Edition, with large folding copper-engraved plate and engraved plate coloured by hand as frontispieces, 2 engraved maps (each finely coloured by hand) and a large folding engraved plan, some very light age-staining; attractively and firmly bound in mid-nineteenth century half calf, green straight-grain cloth boards, back with five flat bands, second compartment with leather label lettered and ruled in gilt, last compartment with date in gilt, red edges, yellow endpapers, a remarkably clean, crisp, well-preserved copy. Evans' most notable work - the first separate account of the town, resort and vicinity - was first published in 1805 to record his sojourn there of the previous summer. The first edition would appear to be particularly scarce; we have been able to locate only two institutional copies (one in the British Library). This greatly enlarged version adds a second volume devoted to the local rides and excursions 'from the pen of a gentleman who is, from long residence, well acquainted with that part of Sussex, and who feels warmly interested in the welfare and prosperity of Worthing'. There are also extra maps and plates. Anderson, p. 285 (recording only this edition); not in Upcott.. . Catalogs: topography: sussex.

        Oeuvres de M. Mignet:

      squ'en 1814 (in 2 volumes);, 1852. squ'en 1814 (in 2 volumes);, 1852 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A uniformly bound collection of some of the works of Franois Auguste Marie Mignet (1796- 1884) was a French journalist and historian. In eight volumes which are:Portraits and Historical and Literary Records (in 2 volumes); History of Mary Stuart (in 2 volumes); Antonio Perez and Philip II; History of the French Revolution From 1789 to 1814 (in 2 volumes); Charles V's Abdication and his Death at the Monastery of YusteMignet worked slowly and lingered over research, with the exception of his Histoire de la rvolution franaise (1824) which was chiefly a political manifesto in support of the Liberal cause, in form of an enlarged sketch, prepared in four months, in which more stress was laid on fundamental theories than on the facts. Mignet was well known in fashionable circles where his witty conversation and pleasant manners made him a favourite. Most of his time was devoted to study and to his academic duties. Eulogies on his deceased fellow-members, the Academy reports on its work, and on the prizes awarded by it, which it was part of Mignet's duty as secretary to draw up, were thoroughly appreciated by connoisseurs, and were collected in Mignet's Notices et portraits. Mignet's most famous works are devoted to modern history. His Histoire de Marie Stuart (2 vols. , 1851) made use of previously unpublished documents from the archives of Simancas. He devoted several volumes to a history of Spain, which had a well-deserved success, including, Charles Quint, son abdication, son sjour et sa mort au monastre de Yuste (1845); Antonio Perez et Philippe II. (1845). Condition: Handsomely bound in quarter morocco binding with marbledpaper covered boards. Externally, generally smart but with slight wear to extremities and the odd mark to boards. Internally, firmly bound. Generally bright and clean but with odd spotting in places and slight off-setting to endpapers from binding. Overall: VERY GOOD.

        Border Antiquities

      London: Printed for Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, 1814 - 1817. London: Printed for Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, 1814 - 1817 Illustrated with 94 illustrated plates by John Grieg after paintings by Luke Clennell, Alexander Nasmyth, and George Arnald, among other artists. First edition. Two volumes. Bound in contemporary full red straight grained Morocco, with five raised bands to the spine, spine compartments elaborately tooled in gilt, beautiful decorative borders stamped in blind and gilt to the boards, gilt turn-ins, all edges gilt. Minor toning to the spines, spines rebacked with original spines laid on, light wear to the extremities, minor rubbing and soiling to the boards, some minor spotting to the endpapers, otherwise exceptionally bright pages and plates. Lovely in a contemporary binding. Border Antiquities is a historical account of the border between England and Scotland, told through the analysis of architectural and sculptural landmarks. Specifically, the text discusses churches, castles, cathedrals, towers, monasteries, bridges, and abbeys, as well as personal artifacts. Although he was not the sole author, Sir Walter Scott's extensive introduction, poetry excerpts, and clear affinity for Scottish history that is apparent in much of his writing, designate him as the main contributor to this monumental work. In his 127 page introduction, Scott explains the academic interest in political border rather than mainland regions: "Numerous castles left to moulder in massive ruins; fields where the memory of ancient battles still lives among the descendants of those by whom they were fought or witnessed; the very line of demarcation, which, separating the two countries, though no longer hostile, induces the inhabitants of each to cherish their separate traditions, - unite to render these regions interesting to the topographical historian or antiquary." Scottish Borders were also of personal interest to Scott; in addition to spending part of his childhood in the region, the poet and historian spent the last decades of his life at Abbotsford, located on the banks of the River Tweed in the Scottish Borders. Border Antiquities was illustrated by John Grieg, who designed, engraved, and printed the 94 illustrations after paintings by various artists. In addition to the text and illustrations, Border Antiquities contains a 101 page appendix and 11 page general index. This set was bound contemporary to publication, as the use of straight grained Morocco was popular during the years 1810 - 1840. Even though it's termed "Morocco," implying goat skin, the most common skin used for this type of binding was sheep. As sheep is the least sturdy material for binding, the treatment of the skin makes it sturdier, with the pattern stamped and then glazed. This organic pattern is referred to as English or American straight grained Morocco; on Continental straight grained Morocco, the impression appears more as short diagonal stripes.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        Réflexions sur les Constitutions, la distribution des pouvoirs, et les garanties dans une monarchie constitutionnelle. MANUSCRIT : plan de discours.

      - Nicole et Gide, 1814. In-8, XVI-166-(2) pp., demi-basane, dos lisse (mors fendus, coiffes arasées). Edition originale de cet ouvrage peu courant, publié à 500 exemplaires le 24 mai 1814, deux semaines avant l?adoption de la Charte constitutionnelle, qui allait rétablir la monarchie (Courtney, 11a). JOINT : MANUCRIT AUTOGRAPHE de Benjamin Constant : plan de discours, en 28 points. Un grand feuillet 30 x 20 cm (papier jauni, fragile, déchirures et défauts divers). Notes en vue d?un discours sur les suites de la Terreur et l?attitude de Constant lors du coup d?Etat du 18 brumaire [1799] : ses regrets d?avoir contribué, involontairement, aux règlements de comptes contre la Révolution et à cette « fatale journée » : « j?ai été non complice l?auteur, mais témoin ». On sait que Constant, présent lors du coup d?Etat, sera nommé au Tribunat, mais très rapidement écarté par Napoléon (il dénoncera dès son premier discours « le régime de servitude et de silence » qui se préparait). Notre manuscrit semble dater de cette époque, puisque Constant envisage les moyens de s?opposer au régime, en concluant qu?il est indispensable de rester dans « les voyes de la légalité & de la justice ». Il conclut : « Un pouvoir qui a violé la Constitution en vertu de laquelle il existe, ne peut y rentrer ». * Voir photographie(s) / See picture(s). * Membre du SLAM et de la LILA / ILAB Member. * La librairie est ouverte du mardi au samedi de 14h à 19h.

        "Abends zu Körners. Tiefe Trauer um Theodor." - Tagebuchaufzeichnungen aus dem Jahre 1814

      1814. Feder auf Papier mit Wasserzeichen "Pro Patria 1804", 4 Seiten Text auf einer Doppelseite, 21,5 x 17,5 cm. "Via Körnersche Familie.- Promenade nach den alten u. neuen heiligen Hallen.

Pirnaische Gaße). bespreche mit ihm die Idee des Denkmals bey Leipzig, wozu früher v. Seckendorf einen mislungenen Entwurf eingegeben hatte.- Verspreche einige Vorschläge deswegen aufzusetzen.- [...] Morgen werde ich Dresden mit Freidhof verlaßen. Die gegenwärtige Stimmung ist hier unendlich niedergedrückt. Man litt s. viel, gegenwärtig ist das schlimste die ungewiße Lage der Zukunft." Die Zeilen dieser Doppelseite schrieb der Weimarer Verleger Carl Bertuch (1777 Weimar 1815) ein Jahr vor seinem Tode. Der Journalist und Autor war der einzige Sohn von Friedrich Justin Bertuch, jenem Verleger, der maßgeblich zur Verbreitung der Weimarer Klassik beigetragen hat. Im Jahre 1800 trat Carl in die Geschäfte seines Vaters ein. In den nachfolgenden Jahren wirkte er bei verschiedenen Publikationen mit. Sein Name ist der Nachwelt aber hauptsächlich durch sein Buch "Wanderungen nach dem Schlachtfelde von Leipzig im October 1813" ein Begriff. Mit diesem "Beitrag zur neuesten Zeitgeschichte" schuf Bertuch einen detaillierten und authentischen Bericht der Ereignisse der Völkerschlacht bei Leipzig, die er hautnah miterlebte. Das umfangreiche Buchprojekt vollendete Bertuch in Rekordzeit und konnte es bereits zur nächsten Leipziger Buchmesse im Frühjahr 1814 präsentieren. Beim folgenden Wiener Kongress ab September 1814 nahm er gemeinsam mit Johann Friedrich Cotta als Entsandter der Vereinigung der deutschen Buchhändler teil. Sie wollten dort ein Gesetz zur Eindämmung der grassierenden Raubdrucke erreichen. Aus dieser Zeit hat sich ebenfalls ein aufschlussreiches Tagebuch erhalten, das 1916 publiziert wurde. Unser Tagebuchblatt stammt aus jener Zeit zwischen der Leipziger Messe und dem Wiener Kongress. Im Mai 1814 begab sich Carl Bertuch gleich nach der Messe auf "eine kleine Kunstreise nach Dresden, [...] um mich vor dem gewöhnlichen Geschäftsgang wieder etwas aufzufrischen", wie er schreibt. Hier in Dresden trifft er die Familie des 1813 bei Leipzig gefallenen Theodor Körners und besucht die zahlreichen privaten Sammlungen, darunter auch die Schuh-Sammlung des Baron Bloch: "Seine intereßante Schuh u. StiefelSammlung v. 400 Stück.- Von den einfachsten Holzschuhen, bis zu den reichverzierten Tatarisch. u. Chinesischen Stiefeln." Weiterhin besucht er den Architekten Gottlob Friedrich Thormeyer (1775 Dresden 1842) und betrachtet dort die Entwürfe für die Freitreppe im Stadtzentrum, mit der die Brühlsche Terrasse öffentlich zugänglich gemacht wurde und die Skizzen zu dem Denkmal für Theodor Körner, das Thormeyer entworfen hatte und das am 23. September 1814 in Wöbbelin eingeweiht wurde. Von der Treppe und von dem Denkmal hat Bertuch je eine kleine Skizze in sein Tagebuch eingetragen. Von Carl Bertuch existieren ebenfalls Entwürfe zu dem Grabmal. Eben jene kündigt er in diesen Tagebuchblättern gegenüber dem Apotheker Struve an. Unsere Seite aus einem heute nicht mehr nachweisbaren Tagebuch gewährt Einblick in das kulturelle Leben Dresdens in Zeiten wichtiger Umwälzungen.

(#6256) "A farmer himself, [Taylor] strove to improve agricultural methods on his own estate and in 1803 published a series of essays in a Georgetown newspaper to explain his methods and ideas. These were later reprinted in 'Arator' whose central idea was the restoration of lost fertility to the soil by what Taylor called 'enclosing.' He believed that plants drew on the atmosphere for life and that as a result of plowing under crops and applying manure soils would regain lost fertility he rejected tobacco, the overseer system, and the use of unprofitable slaves" (DAB).

Title-page printed in black and red.Bound by Charles Murton of London (ticket to verso of ffep; "A fine binder, specializing in blind stamping" - Ramsden) in contemporary full maroon straight-grained morocco with fillets in blind and small cornerpieces enclosing a central panel featuring gilt ornaments of knighthood: helmet, gauntlets, spurs, swords, and shield.

With a reproduction of original title-page: Arthur of Brytayn [on scroll]. The hystory of the moost noble and valyaunt knyght of lytell brytayne ... [woodcut]. "John Bourchier Lord Berners (1467-1553) is best known for his English translations of various European worlds of history and literature, especially the fourteenth century Chronicles of Jean Froissart. Because of their literary merit many of Berner's translations influenced the work of later Elizabethan writers and chroniclers" (Wagner, Enclyclopedia of Tudor England, p. 157); Berner's Arthur of Britain is said to have influenced Spenser.Arthur of Lytell Brytayne is Berner's translation of Artus de la Petite Bretagne, a fourteenth-century prose chivalric romance which was first printed in Lyons in 1493; Berners appears to have used the second version of 1496. The Arthur cycle of legends began with Geoffrey of Monmouth's 12th century Historia Regum Britanniae. The Arthurian legend spread through Europe, particularly in France and Germany. It should be noted that Malory based Le Morte d'Artur on existing French as well as English stories; it is no accident that Malory's title is in French."It gives me great pleasure to bear testimony to the manner, equally spirited and faithful, in which the artist has executed these Engravings, which I am confident the possessors of this work will agree with me in considering as accompaniments infinitely more elegant and appropriate to a 'Romance of Chivalry,' than the rude and shapeless wood-cuts given in Redborne's edition' (Utterson, Preface). Landscape and figure engraver Charles Heath (1785-1848) was one of the most active and influential figures in British book production over the first half of the nineteenth-century.Cf. Esdaile, p. 13 (1st & 2d Redborne editions).
