Orangefarbener OPappband mit typographischem Rückenschild und feiner umlaufender Wellenband-Blindbordüre auf den Deckeln etwas stärker beschabt und stellenweise fleckig.. Erste Ausgabe. Die feierliche Einweihung der Biblioteca Palatina zu Parma*** Erste Ausgabe zweier Schriften des italienischen Gelehrten und Hofbibliothekars Paolo Maria Paciaudi (1710-1785): "Memoria ed orazione" und "Orazione nel solenne aprimento della Reale Biblioteca di Parma presente l'Imperatore Gioseffo II.", publiziert von der Witwe des Giambattista Bodoni (1740-1813), dem Typographen und Verleger anlässich der feierlichen Einweihung der Biblioteca Palatin, der Königlichen Bibliothek zu Parma im Palazzo della Pilotta.

        Cephalogenesis sive capitis ossei structura, formatio et significatio per omnes Animalium classes, familias, genera ac aetates digesta, atque tabulis illustrata, legesque simul psychologiae, cranioscopiae ac physiognomiae inde derivatae.

      1815. Monachii, Hübschmann, 1815. Folio (650 x 480mm). pp. (6), 72, (8), with 18 lithographed plates. Contemporary half calf, marbled sides. An uncut and fine copy of this very rare item on comparative craniology. Johann Baptist von Spix (1781-1826) was a famous German zoologist and explorer. The present magnificently produced work was published before Spix left for Brazil. Together with C.F.P. von Martius he explored Brazil from 1817 to 1820. They were the first European scientists to visit the Amazon after La Condamine. The collections brought home formed the basis of the Natural History Museum in Munich of which Spix was to become the first conservator. "... realisiert er ein Mammutwerk zum Thema der Cephalisation und deren Erkennbarkeit aus dem Bau der Schädel, die "Cephalogenesis" von 1815. Diese Arbeit spiegelt einerseits unverkennbar die Einflüsse Cuviers wieder, zeigt aber andererseits nocheinmal sehr deutlich Spix' Befangenheit in der Naturphilosophie Schellings und besonders in der von Lorenz Oken" (Heinzeller, T. ). The 18 plates consist of 9 plates of skulls of various vertebrates and 9 detailed outline plates of the same plates. The excellent plates are by Mayerhoffer, C. Koeck and H. Koeck. Towards the end a few leaves with some stains at the lower margin. Provenance: Bookplate of W. Wittke. Nissen ZBI, 3947..

        Dottrina Christiana.

      [Genoa, c. 1815-20].. 8vo (233 x 170 mm). Contemp. half calf, spine gilt with with title lettered in gold. With 117 (out of 118) full-page coloured drawings within borders consisting of two lines (206 x 138 mm) illustrating the Christian Doctrine, on strong paper. One leaf with written introduction (one leaf missing), 117 ff. (numbered 1-95, 97-118) with drawings, 3 blank ff.. Interesting manuscript by Padre Ottavio Giovanni Battista Assarotti (1753-1829), containing a method to teach and explain the 'Dottrina Christiana' to Genoese deaf-mutes. Assarotti was an Italian philanthropist and founder of the first school for deaf-mute people in Italy. After qualifying for the church, he entered the society of the Pietists, Scuole Pie, who devoted themselves to the training of young men. In 1801 he heard of the Abbe Sicard's education of deaf people in Paris, and resolved to do something similar in Italy. He began with one pupil, and by degrees collected a small number around him. In 1805, Napoleon, hearing of his endeavours, ordered a convent to give him a school-house and funds for supporting twelve scholars, to be taken from the convent revenues. This order was poorly heeded until 1811, when it was renewed, and the following year Assarotti, with a considerable number of pupils, took possession of the new school. He continued here until his death in 1829. The traditional and distinctive Italian manual alphabet is said to have been invented by Assarotti. - It is not certain that Assarotti himself is the author of the manuscript: while it may equally well have been conceived by one of his collaborators, it is based on the method invented and developed by Assarotti, who also designed the plates. The introduction explains how difficult it is to teach abstract concepts, such as religion, to deaf-mute pupils, so he painted these plates, invented by Assarotti: "He (Assarotti) never wrote down his educational philosophy and methods, and so fell into obscurity after his death" (Deaf History Unveiled, 244f.). As far as we know this manuscript is the only surviving witness of his theories. - The style of the watercolours is somewhat primitive and popular, but very rich in detail, including elaborate plates illustrating Faith in general ('Fede'; nos. 1-42); Commandments ('Legge'; nos. 43-51); Prayers ('Preghiera' 1-10; nos. 52-61); 42 Sacraments ('Sacramenti'; nos. 62-95, 97-104); Virtues ('Virtu' 1-14; nos. 105-118). The illustrations include views of paradise, hell, creation, functions of priests, symbols of all kinds of aspects of the Catholic faith, etc. - In very good condition. - Dizionario biogr. degli Italiani IV, 433f. S. Monaci, Storia del R. Istituto nazionale dei sordomuti in Geneva (1901), 17-88 and passim. F. Donaver, "Il padre Assarotti", in: La Rass. naz. 23 (1901), 79-87. Deaf History Unveiled, ed.

        Travels to the Source of the Missouri River and Across the American Continent to the Pacific Ocean. Performed by Order of the Government of the United States, in the Years 1804, 1805, and 1806 [...]. A New Edition.

      London, for Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme and Brown, 1815.. 8vo. 3 vols. XXVI, (2), 411, (1) pp. X (of XII), 434 pp. XII, 394 pp. With 6 engraved maps signed "Neele" (1 large folding, 5 full-page). Contemporary calf.. Corrected London edition of the famous Lewis and Clarke expedition (1804-06). The importance of this expedition, led by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, can hardly be overestimated. It was prompted by Thomas Jefferson to explore the Rocky Mountains, to find a way to the Pacific, to discover the source of the Missouri River, and to establish trading ties with the Natives. The men brought back a wealth of new information about the geography, natural history and the many Indian cultures of the American West. Numerous species of birds and plants hitherto unknown to science were discovered (e.g., Lewis's Woodpecker, Lewis's Syringa, etc.). The explorers traversed Louisiana, a territory annexed to the United States in 1803, just prior to the start of the expedition, and then still as little known as the interior of Africa. - Lewis had intended to edit his journals for publication, but his untimely death in 1809 prevented this. The official account of the expedition was eventually published in Philadelphia in 1814. The present edition was edited by Thomas Rees and is "a reproduction, in larger type and on better paper, of the Philadelphia edition of 1814" (Sabin). The maps show the tracks of the expedition, ancient fortification and the Great Falls of the Missouri River, and the Great and Lower Falls, as well as the Mouth of Columbia River. - Some browning, half-title of vol. 2 lacking, folding maps reinforced. A good copy, neatly rebacked. - Howes 317 (note). Sabin 40830. Cf. Howgego (1800-1850) L31. Wagner-Camp 13. This edition not in Church or Streeter.

        Le Retour de L'Eglise

      Paris: Rue Coquillere, No. 26, circa 1815. Colour-printed aquatint. Printed on wove paper. In excellent condition. Image size: 11 3/4 x 16 3/4 inches. 15 1/4 x 18/ 3/4 inches. 16 1/8 x 19 5/8 inches. A wonderful colour-printed impression of this charming print depicting the jovial celebration of a country wedding. Genre painting came back into favour when the Academy admitted Watteau's "The Pilgrimage to Cythera" to its ranks in 1717. From that point on, a fashion for decorative genre subjects swept the country, influencing an entire generation of French artists. This stunning print is a wonderful example of French pastoral painting at this period as well as a superb example of French colour printing. Early colour printing was developed as a means of reproducing the effects of painting in oils. This spectacular print exemplifies the single-plate colour printing technique used in England, then adopted in France, at the close of the eighteenth century. The effect is achieved by inking a single plate with several different colours by using a rag stump, this process is known as a la poupée. The combination of colour printing and hand-colouring adds to vivacious character of the image, the happy dance-like promenade from the wedding to the celebration.

        [MASSIVE ARCHIVE OF MANUSCRIPTS AND PRINTED MATERIAL RELATING TO THE LIFE AND CAREER OF CAPTAIN STEPHEN DECATUR (NEPHEW OF COMMODORE STEPHEN DECATUR), AS WELL AS CAPTAIN DECATUR'S WIFE, ANNA, AND THEIR SON, LIEUTENANT STEPHEN DECATUR]

      [Various places. 1830s to early 1900s, as described below].. [Various places. 1830s to early 1900s, as described below].. Manuscript and printed material with occasional edge wear and tears (especially along folds). Overall in very good, readable condition. A huge archive relating to the naval careers and personal lives of two prominent members of the Decatur family. Stephen Decatur (1815- 76) was the son of Capt. John P. Decatur, and the nephew of Commodore Stephen Decatur, hero of the Barbary Wars and the War of 1812. He served in the U.S. Navy for several decades, from the 1830s to the 1870s, and was made a commodore in retirement. His son, also Stephen Decatur (though born William Beverly Decatur in 1855), also had a long career in the Navy, fighting as a lieutenant in the Spanish-American War. The professional and personal lives of both are conveyed in the hundreds of items in the present collection, which includes official naval correspondence, Captain Decatur's personal manuscript naval manual, and a wooden sea chest filled with hundreds of items documenting the life of Lieut. Decatur. Overall it is a rich archive of material, sure to benefit the researcher or naval collector. The contents of the collection include: 1) Some thirty-five manuscript and printed items relating to the naval career and personal life of Captain Stephen Decatur. Among these are several items relating directly to Decatur's service in the navy, including three manuscript orders from the Navy Department relating to Decatur's service and assignments, dated 1835, 1840 (signed by Commander William B. Shubrick), and 1847; a manuscript attesting to then-Lieut. Stephen Decatur's service aboard the U.S.S. Levant in 1840; a partially printed form from the U.S. Navy Department, completed in manuscript and dated June 21, 1870, informing Decatur that he has been appointed a Commodore in the U.S. Navy, as well as a partially printed form, completed in manuscript and dated February 6, 1873, informing Decatur of an increase in his monthly pension. Also included is a printed WHOLESALE PRICES CURRENT for Marseilles, dated August 1, 1829, with additional manuscript notes. This collection also includes a copy of Stephen Decatur's certificate of marriage to Anna Philbrick, accomplished on March 7, 1848 by Thomas Worcester; a small photograph, done at the studios of David Brothers in Portsmouth, New Hampshire; as well as other letters addressing family and business issues, deaths, and the apparent court-martial proceedings against a naval colleague of Decatur named Chandler. 2) A [61]pp. manuscript notebook by Cap. Stephen Decatur, untitled but signed by him on the front cover and internally, comprising a compendium of maritime practices and methods. Bound in original 12mo. limp leather. Created in the mid to late 1830s, this manuscript volume contains a wealth of practical advice for sailors, including those on military vessels. The essays herein include such topics as pulling heavy guns onto a ship, stowing anchors, working with several types of cables and masts, getting under sail, and clearing a harbor. More than anything it resembles an instructional volume on getting a ship prepared for sailing and then setting out to sea. Doubtless it distills several decades of practical Decatur family sailing experiences. 3) Large collection of manuscript material relating to Anna Decatur, the wife of Captain Stephen Decatur, and to his brother Edward. Contains scores of manuscript letters to and from friends and extended family touching on a wide variety of topics. This correspondence provides an excellent picture of life among those in the extended Decatur family. 4) Material relating to the life and naval service of Lieut. Stephen Decatur. Born William Beverly Decatur in 1855, he apparently changed his name to Stephen Decatur sometime after the death of a brother named Stephen. He served in the U.S. Navy during the Spanish-American, and a large portion of this collection details his service in that conflict, including the blockade of Santiago, Cuba, and action in Puerto Rico. Included are ordnance documents, naval yard invoices, letters discussing Admiral Dewey, etc. Many of the documents relate to the U.S.S. Caesar (on which Decatur was Ordnance officer) and the U.S.S. Hannibal. Several letters are written from Decatur in Cuba or Puerto Rico to his family back in New England. There is also a large amount of manuscript material relating to Decatur's personal and family life, his finances and business affairs, etc. A further large collection of Lieut. Stephen Decatur's personal effects are housed in a large wooden sea chest. Among these are bill heads, cancelled checks, account books, business letters, and a pair of grooming brushes with his monogram. In all, hundreds, if not thousands, of items. A massive collection of material relating to the naval and personal lives of two generations in the Decatur family, spanning some seventy years and most of the 19th century.

        A treatise on dry rot

      Lon., 1815.. Color lithographed plates. I know... dry rot is not a particularly enthralling subject. But it was of great concern to the Royal Navy, and Bowden gives the matter thorough treatment here. This is an early book on the subject. More importantly, perhaps, it is also a very early use of color lithography in book publishing. The two plates showing samples of dry rot are rather arresting. From the Scott collection of marine architecture, with their bookplate. Scott 517. Bound in contemporary full diced calf with gilt dentelles and elaborate spine decoration.

        ALS, 2pp. From Anthony Porter, Secretary to Governor Peter Early [to General David Blackshear, Military Commander of American Forces in South and West Georgia]. Postmarked Milledgeville, Georgia, January 25th, 1815

      Milledgeville, GA, 1815. This letter is known and has been published, appearing in Miller, Memoir of General Blackshear, Including letters from Governors Irwin, Jackson, Mitchell, Early, and Rabun...[&c]. Phil: 1858, whence the attribution of Blackshear as recipient. Transcript follows:& & -----------------------------& Milledgeville, GA - 25th January, 1815& & Dear Sir, & I take the liberty of sending to you enclosed a Savannah Republican of the 17th Instant in which you will find two letters from Capt. M[athias?] at Point Petre to Gen'l Floyd at Savannah and one from Col. Scott at Jefferson in Camden County detailing the operations of the Enemy in the neighbourhood of St. Marys. It was upon these documents communicated to the Executive by Express that you were ordered to that quarter of the Country. & & You will readily see what distress the people of that section of the State must be in - they will hail you as their protector & deliverer. & & We have not a word from General McIntosh relative to his progress on towards Mobile since the Governor last wrote you. We have a rumor by way of Athens from Tennessee that Gen'l Jackson has had a battle with the British at New Orleans on the 22d December & was successful. I send you the Extra hand bill from Athens relative to this subject. God send it may prove true. & & In great haste I am Dear Sir & Your Obt Serv't& Anthony Porter. ALS. 2pp (both sides of a single foolscap sheet). Anthony Porter, of a wealthy planter family near Milledgeville, Georgia, was official Secretary to Governor Peter Early (28th Governor of Georgia, 1813-1815). This is a significant letter, describing troop movements in Georgia in the War of 1812 and mentioning hearsay of Jackson's signal victory in the Battle of New Orleans, official news of which had apparently still not reached the Georgia State House more than a month later.

        MANOSCRITTO RIGUARDANTE I ""CENTO GIORNI"" 20 maggio 1815

      Importante manoscritto titolato "Relevé del Etate de Situation de Dépote de Cavalerie de L'Armée du nord". Rara testimonianza della ricerca di uomini e cavalli necessari alla Campagna che Napoleone, rientrato dall'Isola d'Elba, preparò durante la primavera del 1815 contro gli Alleati e che passò alla storia con il nome di Campagna dei Paesi Bassi. Il documento è composto da testo e tavole sinottiche inoltre il primo foglio, doppio, contiene gli altri di misure ridotte. Non reca indicazioni circa la data in cui fu redatto ma si suppone che sia il 20 maggio 1815 poiché nessuna data riportata supera questo giorno. Durante quei giorni infatti si accelerarono i preparativi dell'Armata che doveva essere ricostituita. Il manoscritto concerne 4 corpi dell'Armata del Nord, cioè quella che Napoleone comanderà personalmente nel giugno del 1815. La veste grafica ricorda una lavagna, dove i reggimenti di ogni corpo formano le linee orizzontali, le linee verticali formano le voci da segnalare (disponibili e pronti a partire, disponibili dopo equipaggiamento ecc.). All'interno dello schema si trovano osservazioni sul reclutamento, le rimonte, l'abbigliamento e molto altro ancora. 10 pagine legate con nastro verde di cui l'ottava bianca, la nona solo con intestazione, bianca la decima.

A magnificent set, one of only six copies printed on "grand papier d'Annonay," in contemporary Viennese red morocco bound for Archduke Karl-Ludwig, Duke of Teschen (1771-1847), Field Marshal General and victor at the battle of Aspern again Napoleon. He was the adopted son of Duke Albrecht von Sachsen-Teschen, from whom he inherited all the art collections (now in the Albertina Museum). MacCarthy-Reagh (1744-1811), born in Ireland, became a naturalized French citizen in 1776 on account of his staunch Catholic beliefs and installed himself in Toulouse, where he spent the rest of his life (and considerable wealth) forming one of the finest private libraries ever assembled. Only the La Vallière collection of a generation earlier was comparable in importance. In 1769 he purchased Girardot de Préfond's second library en bloc for 50,000 frs. De Ricci described the Mac-Carthy-Reagh library as "extravagantly rich in books printed on vellum" and the Duke of Devonshire was inspired to put in a bid of 20,000 pounds for the collection which in fact brought only some 16,000 pounds when it came up for auction in 1817. The auction catalogue describes, amongst much else, 602 books (in 826 volumes) printed on vellum including a copy of the Gutenberg Bible (lot 61), copies of the 1457 and 1459 Mainz Psalter, and a copy of the Ximenes Polyglot Bible. It abounded in incunabula, illuminated MSS., and early French literature. The 1817 fixed-price catalogue lists the books which did not reach their reserves in the 1815 auction. Provenance: Archduke Karl-Ludwig, with the Sachsen-Teschen press-mark label inside front covers; Arthur Rau, the Paris bookseller; H.P. Kraus, the New York bookseller (booklabel); and Bernard H. Breslauer (booklabel, his sale, Christie's New York, 21 March 2005, lot 88). ❧ Grolier Club, Printed Catalogues of French Book Auctions...1643-1830, 567. De Ricci, p. 80. .

Cockburn had served as aide-de-camp to General Elliott during the siege of Gibraltar, before a lengthy period travelling Europe studying foreign troop manoeuvres at the behest of the earl of Harington, the colonel of his regiment, the 65th. "In April 1810 Cockburn was appointed to the command of a division in the army of occupation in Sicily, and took charge of Messina, but his period of command was short, and in November, on his promotion to lieutenant-general, he had to resign … Cockburn then travelled in Sicily, and on his return to England published two illustrated volumes called A voyage to Cadiz and Gibraltar … On leaving Sicily, Cockburn settled down at Shanganah Castle, near Bray, co. Wicklow, which he had purchased, and began to devote himself to politics. He was initially a radical reformer and admirer of Cobbett, and erected a column in his grounds in memory of the Reform Bill …" (ODNB). Holly Lodge Library bookplates with ducal coronet of Harriot, Duchess of St. Albans to the front pastedowns - formerly the "darling of the frivolous London stage"; mistress then wife of Thomas Coutts, one of the wealthiest men in Britain; becoming a successful businesswoman in her own right; much lampooned and caricatured, Harriot Beauclerk is one of the most intriguing women of her time.

        AUTOGRAPH QUOTATION SIGNED (AQS)

      5 July 1815. Framed Manuscript. Not examined out of the frame but appears to be Fine. A one-page (8" x 10") lengthy AUTOGRAPH QUOTATION SIGNED by Wordsworth from a poem by Fulke Greville (Lord Brooke), a contemporary and friend of poet Philip Sidney. In full: "The chief use, then in Man of that he knows Is his painstaking for the good of all; Not fleshly weeping for our own made woes, Not laughing from a melancholy gall, Not hating from a Soul that overflows In bitterness, breathed forth from inward thrall; But sweetly rather to ease, loose, or bind, As need requires, this frail, fallen human kind.Lord Brooke./Peter House July 5th 1815/Wm Wordsworth." It is clear why Wordsworth might have chosen these words of Brooke's--"Man's Service" from A TREATISE OF HUMANE LEARNING--to write as the two shared the notion that while knowledge might bring happiness, it also increases susceptibility to suffering and self-torment. Matted and framed with an engraved portrait of Wordsworth to an overall size of 22" x 18". Fulke Greville (1554-1628) was a close friend of Sir Philip Sidney and a great patron of letters. Most of his works were not published until after his murder by a servant who thought he had been omitted from his masterís will. Some believe Greville is the true author of several plays attributed to William Shakespeare.
