        Monuments Anciens et Modernes de l'Hindoustan

      Paris: Didot, [1815-] 1821. 2 volumes in 3, small folio. (14 7/8 x 10 3/4 inches). Text: half-titles in each volume, folding table in vol. 1, 4pp errata and 2pp list of plates in rear of vol. 2. Atlas: engraved title with a large vignette after Henry Salt, 3 engraved maps hand-colored in outline, 143 engraved plates (12 hand-colored, and including 24 plates after Thomas Daniell). Contemporary French red calf-backed red paper boards, flat spines in six compartments divided by gilt roll tools, lettered in gilt in the second and fourth compartments. A beautiful copy of the very rare large-paper first edition of Langles definitive work on India, profusely illustrated and including plates after Thomas Daniell. A contemporary review described this work as follows: "Doubtless it was a vast undertaking to give a complete description of the immense country of Hindostan; to trace its history; to set forth the religion and the manners of its inhabitants; to study and to design its antique monuments and its populous cities: such an undertaking required the united knowledge and talents of the geographer, the philologist, the historian, the philosopher, and the archaeologist. Several estimable artists have already made us acquainted with the picturesque views and the romantic sites of this interesting country, with the various and singular costumes of the Hindoos, and their prodigious monuments. Many learned Indianists have developed the mysteries, till then but imperfectly known, of the Brahmanic theology; and the most celebrated travellers, judicious antiquaries, and well-informed officers, have in almost every part extended their inquiries to the most minute details of topography. However, not one of them has been able to present us with a complete view of the country, whose several parts they have described. Far be it from us to refuse the well-deserved need of praise to the major part of these authors; but one man alone, a man of superior talent, placed in a situation which enabled him to take in with a single glance, to collate, compare, and digest into one body all the materials which had been furnished by so many and such able writers, has succeeded in forming them into one beautiful and symmetrical edifice. M. Langles is the person to whom we allude" (Port Folio, vol. XVI, July to December 1823, p. 252). Langles was the most noted Orientalist in France and served as the keeper of the Oriental manuscripts at the Royal Library. Published in 26 parts beginning in 1813, Brunet cites three issues: regular paper at 15fr per part, papier velin at 24fr per part and grande papier velin at 36fr per part. The illustrations notably include 24 plates after Thomas Daniell, as well as other views of ancient monuments after Forbes and others. The colour plates are largely after Indian miniatures in the Royal Library collection and are richly hand-coloured and heightened with gold. Brunet III, 819-820.

        Rustic Hours Evening Les Heures Champêtres. La Soirée

      London: Tessari & Co., circa 1815. Colour printed stipple engraving with hand-finishing. 15 3/4 x 21 inches. 20 1/8 x 24 3/4 inches. A stunning print after Francis Wheatley, one of the most celebrated genre painters of his day. Wheatley was born and trained in London, and in 1769 was one of the first students admitted to the newly founded Royal Academy. Although he initially practiced as a landscape painter, by the mid 1770s he had become a popular painter of small-scale portraits and informal 'conversation-pieces'. From the 1780s onwards, Wheatley turned increasingly to sentimental domestic scenes that were perfectly attuned to the genteel sensibilities of the period. Today he is generally remembered for his Cries of London, which depicted street vendor such as milkmaids, and fruit sellers engaged in their trade on the street sides. This series was a great success, and inspired a myriad of different engravings and copies by celebrated artists such as Johan Zoffany and J. G. Huck. Wheatley's pretty genre paintings of rural and domestic life were a great source of inspiration for contemporary engravers who reproduced his work with industrious vigor. The popularity of these engravings greatly enhanced Wheatley's reputation, and made him one of the most celebrated painters of his day. Wheatley originally produced four images for the 'Rustic Hours' series which were engraved by H. Gillbank and published in 1800. The present plate is the Thouvenin issue. He is known to have worked on at least two of the images. The scene itself seems curiously theatrical: everyone arrayed in colorful clothes and all gathered in the garden. The husband has come home with his shovel over his shoulder, indicating that he works with his hands. This attention given to the life of agricultural families was something new to printmaking, an exaltation of the common man and English country life in general, based on the growing belief that that is where the soul of England lay. Roberts, F. Wheatley, R.A. His Life and Works p.44

        Viaggio di La Perouse intorno al Mondo

      Milan,: Dalla Tipgrafia Sonzogno e Comp., 1815.. Four volumes bound in two, small octavo, with a folding world map outlined in colour and 16 hand-coloured plates; a nice set in contemporary quarter calf, flat spines gilt, the marbled sides a little rubbed. Quite uncommon: the first Italian edition of the voyages of La PÈrouse, with a lovely series of handcoloured plates based on the original images of Gaspard DuchÈ de Vancy done for the official French edition. Part of their charm lies in the way that they have been simplified to suit the format of the Italian edition.The existence of this Italian edition is testament to La PÈrouse's enduring fame throughout Europe, appearing as it did before even Captain Cook's voyages were translated (Navigazioni di Cook, 1816-17).It was almost fifteen more years before Peter Dillon published his discovery of the wreck of the Astrolabe and Boussole on Vanikoro and the map for this edition therefore still shows La PÈrouse's track finishing at Botany Bay. The disappearance of the entire La PÈrouse expedition overshadows what was in reality a great Pacific voyage. While primarily a voyage of exploration and discovery, the possibilities of the fur trade and of French expansion into the Pacific and Asia were evidently investigated in depth. La PÈrouse's habit of forwarding records whenever opportunity offered ensured their survival. The first portion was forwarded by sea from Macao; the second (Macao to Kamchatka) went overland with De Lesseps, and the final despatches from Botany Bay.'Published as part of a series, Raccolta di Viaggi dopo quelli di Cook, of which, according to a series title, this comprised Volumes I-IV but is complete in itself. Strathern also lists a Livorno 1827 edition and a Naples 1831 edition. There is also a Naples 1833 edition' (Forbes). It was evidently sold by subscription: two extensive lists of subscribers appear at the end of the first and last volumes (respectively 26 and 27 pp., so a serious business). In both of them the name of Lover or Lovera figures, who is identified as being from Milan. "G. Lovera" also appears in gilt on the spines of the two volumes..Ferguson, 609; Forbes, 'Hawaiian National Bibliography', 445; McLaren, 'LapÈrouse in the Pacific', 25.

        Théorie de l'économie politique, fondée sur les faits résultans des statistiques de la France et de l'Angleterre; sur l'expérience de tous les peuples célèbres par leurs richesses; et sur les lumières de la raison.

Sparse quanto consuete fioriture. Bell'esemplare. Prima edizione, molto rara. Il Ganilh desume dall'andamento finanziario della Francia e della Gran Bretagna dopo la Rivoluzione Francese i corollari delle sue tesi neo-mercantiliste, contrapposte al laissez-faire di Smith e di Say. "Was a mercantilist with considerable modifications, due no doubt largely to his extensive acquaintance with the economic literature of his own time" (Palgrave). "On le vit toujours combattre les dilapidations, et cet absurde sophisme, que la progression des dépenses publiques est une des causes de la prospérité nationale" (Coquelin & Guillaumin, I, p. 905). Il Ganilh (Allanche, Cantal, 1758-Parigi, 1836), economista di tendenze mercantiliste e protezioniste, ricoprì varie cariche pubbliche durante la Rivoluzione e il periodo napoleonico.

        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.

      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 Maÿerhoffer, 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.

        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.

        The Journal of Llewellin Penrose, a Seaman

      Lon., 1815.. Novel of a seafaring life based on the author’s true experience. But the story is better than that. The author was William Williams, and he was the first teacher of American painter Benjamin West, whose recollections of Williams appear in the introduction to this work. The publisher had befriended Williams, only to discover, on Williams’ death, the manuscript, which he put into print. The book made quite a splash when it first came out, Byron is said to have remarked, “I have never read so much of a book at first sitting in my life. He kept me up half the night, and made me dream of him in the other half.” A scarce and unusual item, of equal interest to art and maritime historians. Four volumes bound in two.

        BRINDES DE MENEGHIN A L'OSTARIA. Per l?Entrada in Milan de Sova S. C. Majstaa I.R.A. Franzesch Primm In compagnia de Sova Miee l'Imperatriz Maria Luvisa.

      press Antoni Fortunaa Stella, in Santa Margarita 1815 In-8 p. (mm. 200x129), bross. originale blu incorniciata da duplice greca: sul piatto anter. al centro ?Brindes?, su quello poster. ?Prezzo centesimi 50?. Plaquette di pp. 16 (numer. da p. 4 a 14; le ultime 2 bianche; al verso del frontespizio ?Stampaa da Giovann Pirotta, in Santa Redegonda?). "Edizione originale" di questo importante testo. Il componimento era già pronto e stampato perché ?Francesco I giunse in Milano nelle ore pomeridiane del 31 dicembre 1815. Aveva seco la sua terza moglie Maria Luisa Beatrice (sposata il 6 giugno 1808), ammalata di etisia. L?accoglienza ai Sovrani fu freddissima, appunto come era la giornata, ma non mancarono i soliti festeggiamenti ufficiali.. Per quell?occasione fu scritto questo ditirambo, pazzo, scomposto, ubriaco, che mentre caratterizza lo stato degli animi del popolano, spiega abbastanza chiaramente la velata e fina satira del poeta, il quale, per celebrare un nuovo dominatore straniero, trova la finezza di fingersi ebbro, onde sferzare così più liberamente quella casta che aveva brigato tanto indegnamente pel richiamo degli Austriaci, mentre avrebbe dovuto sapere che nessun vantaggio ne sarebbe venuto alla patria comune invasa e messa a ruba da novelli padroni?. Così da ?Poesie di C. Porta? annotate da Policarpo Campagnani, Libr. Robecchi (1887), p. 583. Cfr. Orlando Cecco,88 - Cat. Hoepli,293 - Predari, p. 375. Bello e fresco esemplare.

Wonderful original printed steel blue paper over wooden boards. Spine nearly gone, wear to boards, but internally good with some darkening and mostly marginal dampstaining.

In referring to Bradley's "An Improved Spelling Book," similar in format to this one and published the same year, Nietz informs us that "this book was different from many others in several respects. First, Bradley frankly acknowledged that 'the extracts have been taken from Webster, Wood, Picket, Alden, Bingham, Flint, Murray, Hubbard, Fordyce, Walker, the American Gentleman's Pronouncing Dictionary, Dr. Johnson, Dr. Morse, and Dr. Blair [all authors of spellers].'
