      1814. "Deserves to Rank Among the Two or Three Really Historic Contributions to Political Science Which have been Produced in the United States" Taylor, John, Of Caroline [1753-1824]. An Inquiry into the Principles and Policy of the Government of the United States. Comprising Nine Sections, Unde the Following Heads: I. Aristocracy; II. The Principles of the Policy of the United States, And of the English policy; III. The Evil Moral Principles of the Government of the United States; IV. Funding; V. Banking; VI. The Good Moral Principles of the Government of the United States; VII. Authority; VIII. The Mode of Infusing Aristocracy into the Policy of the United States; IX. The Legal Policy of the United States. Fredericksburg, [VA]: Green and Cady, 1814. [iii]-viii, 656, [1] pp. Octavo (8-1/4" x 5"). Contemporary three-quarter diced calf over marbled boards, lettering piece and gilt fillets to spine. Light rubbing to boards. moderate rubbing to extremities, corners bumped and lightly worn, hinges cracked, two early owner bookplates (J.W. Bailey, Hugh Cox) to front pastedown. Light browning to text, somewhat heavier in places, occasional light foxing. A handsome copy. * Only edition. Taylor wrote this important work in 1814 as a reply to John Adams's Defence of the Constitutions of Government of the United States of America. Unlike Adams, he rejects the concept of "a natural aristocracy" of "paper and patronage" and a federal government based on a system of debt and taxes. He considers the American government to be one of divided powers responsible to the sovereign people alone. Opposed to the extent of power awarded to the executive office, he calls for shorter terms for the president and all elected officers. Charles Beard said this work "deserves to rank among the two or three really historic contributions to political science which have been produced in the United States.": Dictionary of American Biography IX:331.

        Picturesque Representations of the Dress and Manners of the English

      London: Printed for John Murray by W. Bulmer and Co., 1814. London: Printed for John Murray by W. Bulmer and Co., 1814. - With Fifty Hand Colored Aquatint PlatesDepicting a Huge Range of Social TypesALEXANDER, William. Picturesque Representations of the Dress and Manners of the English. Illustrated in fifty coloured engravings, with descriptions. London: Printed for John Murray by W. Bulmer and Co., 1814. Small quarto (8 15/16 x 6 1/8 inches; 227 x 156 mm.). [iv], Fifty hand colored aquatint plates, each with an accompanying leaf of text. Plates watermarked "J. Whatman Turkey Mills ---9" which we would estimate to be 1819.Contemporary full maroon straight-grain morocco, covers elaborately bordered in gilt and blind, spine with four raised bands, decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt in compartments, gilt boards edges and turn-ins, all edges gilt. A fine, albeit slightly later copy of this fascinating work. This extraordinary work covers a huge range of social types from 'The Sovereign' to a chimney sweep, a judge to the licensed man that watered and fed the horses pulling the hackney carriages. The images and related text on the lower classes in general and the street vendors in particular are probably the most interesting. They picture and describe people who do not appear in conventional histories of the period, and offer a window into real life on the streets at the beginning of the 19th century. Colas notes that the plates are engraved from earlier images by William Henry Pyne, presumably those published in his The Costume of Great Britain (London: 1804, 60 plates). Pyne's work was evidently a major source for this work, as a comparison of the titles to the plates shows, but there are also a significant number of military subjects that are not in Pyne's work, suggesting a variety of sources. The plates have been executed with a refreshing liveliness and freedom that is not usually seen in books of this type, but which is typical of William Alexander's etched and engraved work. This volume is part of a series, all of which were published uniformly in 1814 and include:Picturesque Representations of the Dress and Manners of the AustriansPicturesque Representations of the Dress and Manners of the ChinesePicturesque Representations of the Dress and Manners of the RussiansPicturesque Representations of the Dress and Manners of the TurksColas II, 2357; Lipperheide Gca 21; Tooley 374.

        Relation Des Sièges De Saragosse et De Tortose Par Les Français, Dans La Dernière Guerre d'Espagne.

      Chez Magimel, Libraire Pour L'art Militaire, Paris 1814 - Reliure demi-chagrin vert sombre à coins fin XIXe, in-4, iv-67 p., pages de garde marbrées, signet vert, grandes marges, deux plans dépliants, in fine, sur onglet, des sièges de Saragosse en 1809 et de Tortosa en 1810. Rare relation, intéressante par la précision des faits rapportés. Joseph Rogniat (1776-1840) fit une brillante carrière d'officier du Génie. Sorti de l'Ecole de Metz en 1795, il participa aux campagnes d'Allemagne et d'Espagne : il s'illustra aux sièges de Dantzig, puis de Saragosse, de Tortosa. La prise de Saragosse lui valut le grade de général de Brigade. Napoléon le nomma à la Grande Armée commandant en chef du Génie en 1813. Rogniat préconisa le camp retranché de Dresde. Il se rallia à la Restauration, mais rejoint Napoléon lors des Cent-Jours. Il garda la responsabilité du Génie jusqu'à sa mort en 1840. Il créa la polémique en 1816 en critiquant la tactique de Napoléon dans son ouvrage "Considération sur l'art de la guerre". Reliure, couverture et pages de garde en très bon état, page de titre et les trois suivantes marquées par de larges mouillures, addition en marge de la page une à l'encre noire, quelques légères plissures dans les pages sans conséquence, plans dépliants marqués par la poussière en bordures, mais en très bon état.

        Essai sur l'infanterie légère, ou traité des petites opérations de la guerre, à l'usage des jeunes officiers, avec cartes et plans.

      Paris, Michaud, 1814.. Two parts in one volume. Paginated consecutively. Octavo. Pp. 16, 146; 147-421, (2). Plus large folding hand-coloured engraved map bound at end, and 3 folding engraved plates bound-in. Half-title present. Hardcover, bound in contemporary brown half calf and matching marbled boards, red morocco lettering-piece lettered and decorated in gilt, direct gilt tooling to spine; corner-tips worn, small chip at head of spine, some rubbing to extremities; old calligraphed signature and charming old ownership stamp in the shape of an elephant to title-page, map bit dust-soiled. In a very good condition, crisp plates. ~ First edition. General Guillaume Philibert, Comte Duhesme, (1766-1815). Two variant editions were published by Michaud in 1814 with identical title-page and identical 16 preliminary pages of the Préface and Avant-propos. The rest of the text, however, is set differently. The present copy conforms the copy at Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin. It requires 421 pages for completion while the variant uses less compact type and needs 480 pages to complete the identical text. The typeset of the variant includes also some errors and misprints which had to be corrected in Errata note. A later edition appeared in 1864. The engraved maps and plates are particularly handsome. The large folding map has troop's movements and progress coloured by hand. It is titled “Carte du Théâtre de la Guerre en Russie et en Allemagne pendant 1812 et 1813” and is apparently engraved in preparation for Sarrazin's book “Histoire de la Guerre de la Restauración” (1815). No confirmation could be found for the presence of this map in the variant edition.

        Arliss' Hieroglyphical Bible. With Four Hundred Embellishments on Wood

      London: Whittingham and Arliss, 1814. Striking first edition of Arliss' Hieroglyphical Bible, "by far the best of the English Hieroglyphic Bibles" (Clouston, 90), designed to capture the interest of children. Selected verses are printed with wood-engraved icons in place of key words, making each page a puzzle, from Genesis through Revelations: "Hieroglyphics originated with the ancient Egyptians. They were invented by the priests and sages of that country, to conceal as well as to conserve the knowledge of truth; but they are here employed to engage the mind, by attracting the eye, and by this means to impress on the recollection the most interesting passages of Holy Writ." While this Bible was an ephemeral production, publishers Arliss and Whittingham were known for their attention to detail: "Mr. Arliss . . . possessed a considerable taste in embellishing juvenile works with wood engravings, and in conjunction with Mr. Whittingham, may be said to have largely contributed to the revival of the beautiful in the art of printing" (Timperley, Dictionary of Printers and Printing). Reissued many times, on both sides of the Atlantic, this 1814 edition is the first issued by Arliss; OCLC lists only microform copies. A near-fine example, and a remarkable survival. Twelvemo, measuring 3.5" x 5.5", pp. [i]-iv, 5-106, [2]. Original drab pictorial paper boards, title framed by a pictorial wood-engraved border, multiple wood engravings on every page. Two pages of publisher's advertisements following text. Bookseller ticket to front pastedown. Neatly rebacked, light rubbing and soiling to boards.

      Edinburgh: printed by James Ballantyne and Co. for Archibald Constable and Co. Edinburgh; and Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, London,, 1814. or, 'tis sixty years since. In three voluemes. Second edition. 3 volumes, octavo (172 x 104). Contemporary speckled calf, spines gilt-tooled in compartments with red and black morocco title labels, gilt-rolled board edges. With all three half titles (after the title pages). Extremities rubbed with a few scuffs to leather, front joints just starting at the head of spines, withal a sound clean set in very good condition. Second edition (same year as the first) of the first novel in Scott's Waverley series. This copy was owned by William King, 8th Baron King and Earl of Lovelace, who in 1835 married the mathematician Ada Lovelace, née Byron, the poet Lord Byron's only legitimate daughter. Ada became, like her father, a friend and correspondent of Walter Scott in his later years. Her notes to her translation of General L. F. Menabra's Sketch of the Analytical Engine Invented by Charles Babbage contain what is regarded as one of the earliest computer programs. Through his marriage King acquired the title Earl of Lovelace in 1838, Ada becoming Countess of Lovelace. The Ben Damph Forrest library stamps, which appear on the pastedowns in each volume here, derive from their sporting lodge in Scotland, which the earl built several decades after Ada's premature death in 1852.

        Catalogue d'une Belle Collection de Tableaux, Délaissés par feu M. Vanderborcht, dont la vente se faira au comptant, le 27 aout 1814 ( le jour après la vente de M. Pauwels), a neuf heures du matin, en la maison de la brasserie de la barbe, chaussée, d'Anderlecht, section III, No. 655, a Bruxelles, sous la direction du notaire Geens.

      Brussels: Veuve de Braeckenier, Imprimeur-libraire, marche au fromage, No. 322., 1814. First Edition. Very good antiquarian condition. 8vo; 10 pp, plus a blank leaf. On paper faintly tinted blue. 78 lots of paintings; only the first 32 priced (in a contemporary hand). Recent sympathetic wrappers. Two Belgian tax stamps to tail margin of fourth page. Small but significant art sale catalogue, of which no copy can be found in the United States. As we learn from the Getty Provenance Index: "The paintings found in the present sale are claimed on the title page of the catalogue to have been the property of a certain "M. Vanderborcht" who was already deceased. He has not been identified, although he might be the print dealer of this name who is listed in the 1810 commercial almanach of Brussels [...] It is noteworthy that "Vander Borght" is recorded as having purchased six paintings at the present sale, one of which, a landscape by Berchem, the first lot in the sale, was apparently bought in. This implies that "Vander Borght" may have been a corruption of "Vander Borcht" (or vice versa) and that the buyer at the present sale was a member of the same family. However, the remaining five pictures bought by him do not seem to have been bought in, so the matter must remain open. All 78 lots in the sale consisted of paintings, although there is a note at the end stating that in addition to some more pictures to be sold "hors du catalogue," a pair of scales for weighing gold would also be offered. The paintings are clearly organized with the most valuable items at the front of the catalogue, and the prices for the first half of the sale were reasonably high. The last lots brought very small amounts, and the annotators of the various extant copies of the catalogue [including ours] did not bother to record their buyers. The highest price, 1300 francs, was realized by the first lot by Berchem, but as noted above, it was apparently only bought in. [...] Two other lots reached or surpassed 500 francs: A Still life with dead poultry and two figures by Frans Snyders and Rubens was sold for 560 francs, and a landscape by Jan Both went for 500 francs. Both were sold to the dealer L.J. Nieuwenhuys, who bought altogether eleven lots at the sale. Annotations in the MB copy of the catalogue indicate that four of the most expensive of these, including the picture by Snyders and Rubens, were purchased on behalf of "Lerouge," presumably the Parisian dealer Nicolas Lerouge. None of the paintings in the sale have been identified. Provenance: contemporary signature of "Mr. Spruijt" to head margin of title; this individual is C.-J.-F. Spruyt, the art dealer, painter, and curator for Prince Auguste d'Arenburg. The Getty Provenance Index lists 1,402 purchases by Spruyt from 1784-1810. OCLC finds only the KMSKA copy. Lugt 8579.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Göttingen, 11. VIII. 1814.

      1814. 4 SS. 4to. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "Ich versprach dir, lieber Freund, vor meiner Abreise aus Rudolstadt, bisweilen von unsern Hin- und Herzügen Nachricht zu geben. Aber wie das so geht - der gute Wille ist da, aber tausendfache Zerstreuungen [...] verzögerten immer mein löbliches Vorhaben; meine Saumseligkeit hat diesmal die wenigste Schuld. Kürzlich unsere Reiseroute: Vom Sondershausen nach Alexisbad - Langensalza - Gotha - Erfurt - Lauchstädt - zurück über Sondershausen und Göttingen nach Pyrmont (inliegend der Zettel unseres zweiten Concerts) zurück über Göttingen (heute wie der Zettel besagt Concert das.). [...] Der Glanzpunkt unserer ganzen Reise wird doch wohl Pyrmont bleiben. Wir haben deiner und Hollebens und Sommers oft gedacht, und Euch mit Sehnsucht in unsere Mitte gewünscht. Wie oft hat mir Hollebens gefehlt! Der Zweck unserer reise ist schön erfüllt worden. Eine Menge interessanter Bekanntschaften, Vergnügen die Hülle und Fülle [...] - alles machte unsere Reise zu einer der amüsantesten, die man machen kann. Die Schattenseite bildeten die schlechten Orchester, das mitunter sehr mühsame und angreifende Schnellreisen, wenn es uns etwa an einem Orte zu lange gefallen hatte, und ... das Abschiednehmen von allen den hübschen Mädchen u. Weiberchens [...]". - Methfessel studierte von 1807 bis 1809 Theologie und klassische Philologie in Leipzig, wirkte daneben als Sänger an Gewandhauskonzerten mit und wandte sich ganz der Musik zu, als ein Stipendium der Fürstin von Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt ihm eine Gesangsausbildung bei Francesco Ceccarelli in Dresden ermöglichte. 1810 bis 1822 stand er als Hof- und Kammersänger im Dienst des rudolstädtischen Hofes, ging dann als Musikdirektor und Gesanglehrer nach Hamburg und wurde 1832 Hofkapellmeister in Braunschweig.

        Recueil des dessins d'ornaments d'architecture de la manufacture de Joseph Beunat. A Sarrebourg, et a Paris, Rue St. Avoye, no. 63. Contenant tout ce qui rapport a la decoration des apartments [...]. Sarrebourg and Paris, [c. 1814].

      1814. Large 4to (324 x 250 mm). Engraved throughout. 86 plates (including decorative title-page) with many hundreds of different designs. Contemp, German tree calf, flat spine with contemporary ink lettered paper label; bound with are the original dove grey printed wrappers, entitled "Sammlung der Zeichnungen sämmtlicher Architektur- und Meubles- Verzierungen aus der Fabrike von Joseph Beunat, zu Sarreburg in Lothringen". An important trade catalogue of furniture ornament and interior decorative designs manufactured by a patented process at Beunat's factory in Sarrebourg in the Alsace. Beunat was the first to manufacture and distribute pre-fabricated moulded elements of ornamentation. His designs were in the French Empire style, pioneered by the architect duo Percier and Fontaine. Beunat's trade catalogue shows about 800 decorative designs of friezes, panel ornaments, pilasters, capitals, mouldings, candelabras, vases, heads, mythological figures and motives, rosettes, frames for pictures and mirrors, door surrounds, etc. There are also a handful of designs of entire rooms together with floor plans. The designs were offered in plasterwork as stucco decorations for interiors, but some must also have been offered in bronze as furniture ornament. The plates are finely detailed and drawn with measurements. This copy bears proof of Beunat's international ambitions. The plates and title-page of the trade catalogue are French, while the wrappers give all the necessary information in German. There is a German summary of the designs contained in the catalogue, as well as practical information indicating that the measurements are in French with a scale. There is also a reference to Beunat's "Erfindungs-Patent". We could not locate another copy with the German wrappers. Some of the plates are dated "1812", some "1813", the latest date is "18 December 1813". Plates nos. 83 and 85 have neat ink ms. additions. Some of the plates were engraved by Louis Marie Normand, August Montferrand, or A. P. Giraud. - An excellent copy, clean and crisp, from the Donaueschingen Fürstenberg library (their small stamp to verso of title-page). Kat. der Ornamentstichslg. Berlin 1387 (72 plates, dated 1812).

It took place in Paris (Salle de l'hôtel de Bullion) on August 29-September 7, 1814. Bruun-Neergaard lived in Paris for many years and the collection consisted mainly of French gouaches, but also Danish artists were represented, such as C.W. Eckersberg, J.-F.-J.

        Fidelio. Eine Grosse Oper in 2 Aufzügen. Vienna, Artaria, [1814].

      1814. Oblong folio. Engraved piano score with the text. Untrimmed. First printing of the first edition of Beethoven's only opera; of the utmost rarity. Inscribed on the title page, in Beethoven's own hand, to his benefactor Pasqualati (1777-1830), in whose house the composer then lodged: "Seinem werthen Freunde Baron von Pasqualati vom Verfasser" ("To his dear friend Baron Pasqualati, from the author"). No more than three copies of this first edition bearing Beethoven's autograph inscription are known; the present one is described by Kinsky/Halm as follows: "This copy from the collection of the Society of Friends of the Music in Vienna (cf. no. 893 in the guide-book to the Centenary Exhibition, Vienna 1927) was presented to the conductor Arturo Toscanini by the Austrian Government on 1 November 1934 on the occasion of a performance of Verdi's 'Requiem', directed by him, as a gift of honour (cf. 'Philobiblon' VIII, 6)." - Professionally cleaned with repairs to gutter. Collection stamp of the Society of Friends of the Music in Vienna on title page and verso of final leaf. Beethoven's autograph inscription pencilled across the blank margin of the title page. - The present dedication copy was not publicly shown since the great 1927 exhibition in honour of the centennial of Beethoven's death; it was latterly considered lost (as are the other two dedication copies of "Fidelio" described in the catalogue of Beethoven's works). We acquired it directly from Toscanini's estate in spring 2016.

        A propos de l'ouverture d'un Mont de Piété au Havre en 1810 et des agissements frauduleux et criminels de Didier Jourdeuil dit Leautey s'étant fait passé pour mort en 1800 et vivant au Havre en 1814.

      Lettre autographe signée LETOURNEAU, Ingouville près Le Havre, 18 septembre 1814, adressée au Rédacteur du Journal de La Quotidienne à Paris, au retour de Louis XVIII, après les " Cent jours ". 5 pages in-4°, adresse et marques postales. A l'ouverture de la lettre, un morceau de papier de la quatrième page est resté collé au cachet de cire rouge. Il manque plusieurs lettres sans gêner la lecture du texte. Huissier de profession , appelé à siéger à la Commune de Paris, Jourdeuil devint administrateur de police. Comme membre du Comité de Surveillance de la Commune, il signa de nombreux ordres d'arrestations et favorisa les massacres de septembre en co-signant la circulaire enjoignant aux provinces d'imiter Paris. Sans fortune en 1789, l'achat du vaste couvent des Filles du Saint Sacrement rue Cassette à Paris montre son enrichissement. Puis il va siéger en 1793 au tribunal révolutionnaire comme juré. Il contribua à l'installation de Fouquier Tinville et de plusieurs de ses anciens collègues comme jurés. Il fut nommé adjoint du Ministre de la guerre. accusé d'avoir fait arrêté et fusiller un officier, il est arrêté, emprisonné et bénéficie de l'amnistie générale d'octobre 1795. Devenu assesseur d'un juge de paix, il est condamné à la déportation par arrêté des Consuls (1799). Mais grâce à la protection particulière de Fouché il en est épargné. Puis il disparait et ne refait parler de lui qu'avec cette lettre de dénonciation. Jourdeuil dit Leautey (1760 - 18...) fut dénoncé par ce document envoyé au rédacteur en chef du journal La Quotidienne à Paris.

        The Letters of Ortis to Lorenzo:

      London: for Henry Colburn; and sold by George Goldie, Edinburgh, and John Cumming, Dublin,, 1814. Taken from the original manuscripts, published at Milan in 1802. Translated from the Italian. Duodecimo (199 x 113 mm). Contemporary olive half morocco, smooth spine attractively gilt at head and tail and lettered direct, marbled sides, sprinkled edges. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Ortis. Contemporary engraved armorial bookplate (motto "Fortuna juvat"). Edges of marbled paper on sides tanned from underlying leather, a little foxing at beginning and end, an excellent copy. First edition in English of Foscolo's epistolary novel, Ultime lettere di Jacopo Ortis (Milan, 1802). Influenced by Goethe's Werther and Rousseau's Julie, the novel is a story of unrequited love in Northern Italy during the Napoleonic era which ends with the eponymous letter-writer's contemplative final thoughts and drawn-out suicide. The unidentified English translator signs the preface "F.B." Between them, Copac and OCLC locate only two copies, at Cambridge and Chicago. From the library of the literary scholar I. A. Shapiro, with his pencilled ownership inscription to the front free endpaper. Laid in are two letters: one, his retained carbon, dated 2 April 1949, to Isobel Macdonald, author of The Buried Self: a Background to the Poems of Matthew Arnold 1848?1851 (1949), mentioning that he owns this copy; together with her autograph reply, dated 4 April 1949. The shared point of interest is that Arnold's 1852 collection Empedocles on Etna includes the poem "To Marguerite, in Returning a Volume of the Letters of Ortis" (later retitled "To Marguerite", then "Isolation").

Original plain wrappers, a few water-spots on front wrapper. Fine copy. Stamp of the Ludwig collection, formed by physiologist Carl Ludwig (1816-95), on front wrapper and title; also stamp of neuroanatomist Lewis H. Weed (1886-1952). First Edition of Gmelin’s inaugural dissertation, a medico-chemical analysis of human, bovine and feline kidneys. Gmelin, a cousin of the famous German chemist Leopold Gmelin, was professor of chemistry and pharmacy at the University of Tübingen; he is best known for being one of the first to invent a process for the artificial manufacture of ultramarine blue pigment, and for being the first to observe that lithium salts burn with a bright red flame. This copy of Gmelin’s dissertation is from the library formed by Carl F. W. Ludwig (see numerous references), the first professor of physiology at the University of Leipzig and founder of the physiological institute that now bears his name. The copy was later owned by neuroanatomist Lewis H. Weed, director of the Johns Hopkins Medical School from 1929-46; Weed discovered the origin of the cerebrospinal fluid and mapped its circulation (see 1439).

He rose to become the director of the Royal Botanical Garden on the island in 1775, a position he maintained until his death in 1810. He was instrumental in facilitating an exchange of plants between Mauritius, the Indies, and Europe and America, specializing in spices grown in plantations on the island.

        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).* Frais de port en sus. * Membre du SLAM et de la LILA / ILAB Member. * La librairie est ouverte du mardi au samedi de 14h à 19h. * Si vous souhaitez passer à la librairie pour un livre, merci de nous prévenir au préalable, l'ensemble du stock visible en ligne n'étant pas immédiatement consultable. *
