        Six Drawings of Sporting Notions

      London, 1815-1830. Half Calf. Paper pastedown on boards. . Fine. A handsome modern binding of six original Alken drawings. Elephantine oblong, 35 by 50 cm. The drawings themselves are laid in a heavy board frame within the binding, and this frame has a window of 19 by 26 cm. The drawings themselves are laid on paper, and this paper is exposed, creating a margin all around, of about 1 cm. The drawings are titled: "I have a notion that I am not quite up to this riding in Surry [sic]", "A gad I had no notion that picking up a fox was such sharp work", "I have a strong notion that this is a coal hole", "I have a very strong notion I should not like stag hunting", "I have a strong notion that this bit of timber will impede my progress excessively", and "I have a notion that this may be called riding to the hounds at a smashing pace". All the drawings relate to foxhunting and its perils and sources of anxiety. The drawings served as the basis for some of the plates in one of the rarest of Alken's color plate books, "Sporting Notions", which was published in 1833 (with plates watermarked 1831 to 1833). Humor, along with a touch of pathos, pervades the artwork. The modern binding is handsome and worthy of the contents. Leather title label on front board.

        A Collection of Seven Drawings

      London, 1815-1830. Half Calf. Paper pastedown on boards. . Fine. A handsome modern binding of seven original Alken drawings. Elephantine oblong, 35 by 50 cm. The drawings themselves are laid in a heavy board frame within the binding, and this frame has a window of 25 by 36 cm. The drawings themselves are laid on paper, and this paper is exposed, creating a margin all around, of not quite 2 cm. The drawings are titled: "Swell and the Surrey, No. 1", "Swell and the Surrey No. 2", "Drawing the Long Bow", "Drawing a Horse", "A Cabbage Leaf Galloper", "In Such a Scene as This", and "Rider Unshipped". Most relate to riding and equestrian sports, but "Drawing the Long Bow" depicts men drinking and playing cards. Generally the scenes have a touch of humor and levity, although one can not say they are all caricature or intended to be funny. While one can find some sketchiness here and there, overall the drawings come off as satisfying works that can stand on their own -- in other words, they are closer to being finished than tentative works in progress. Bringing coherence to the group is an esprit of quintessential Alken. The modern binding is handsome and worthy of the contents. Leather title label on front board.

        Osservazioni sui difetti prodotti nei teatri dalla cattiva costruzione del palco scenico e su alcune inavvertenze nel dipingere le decorazioni. (Segue:) Aggiunta alle osservazioni sui teatri e sulle decorazioni. Milano, Cesarea Regia Tipografia, 1815 - 18

      Regia Tipogr, 1815. 2 parti in un vol. in - 4, pp. 53; 43 (entrambi num. a partire da 10, i due frontespizi architettonici incisi all'acquatinta da Albertolli, sebbene fuori testo, sono compresi fra i preliminari); legato in bel cartone decorato coevo. Landriani fu architetto e scenografo al Teatro alla Scala di Milano dal 1792 fino alla morte. Innovativa fu la sua critica nei confronti della scenografia barocca, auspicando egli un sistema di regole neoclassiche per la decorazione delle scene. Oltre ai 2 bellissimi frontespizi architettonici impressi all'acquatinta di seppia, l'opera è adorna di 10 tavole incise e più volte ripieg. f.t., di piante e spaccati. La sua rara opera analizza dettagliatamente il palco, il proscenio, le scene, le quinte, le prospettive, i chiaroscuri.. Alcuni anni dopo fu corredata di altre due appendici.

Torna liscio decorato con motivi geometrici, gioielli d'oro e pizzo. Marocco verde come Allegato. Net freddo inquadrare i piatti. Rotoli Gilt sui tagli e berretti. Un'ampia scuff sul primo piatto. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale. Reliure de l'époque en pleine basane blonde racinée. Dos lisse orné de motifs géométriques, de fleurons et de dentelles dorés. Pièce de titre de maroquin vert. Filet à froid en encadrement des plats. Roulette dorée sur les coupes et les coiffes. Une large épidermure sur le premier plat. Ecrit en 1814, alors que Napoléon combattait aux portes de Paris. L'auteur, un des conseillers de Napoléon durant dix années, cherche dans cet ouvrage à dresser le portrait véritable de l'empereur, à scruter, derrière l'apparence des choses les véritables motivations et le véritable caractère de Napoléon Bonaparte. L'auteur démasque les fausses légendes, comprenant que la prodigieuse faculté de tout embrasser à son revers, celui de ne rien approfondir ; portrait d'un homme dont l'obsession et le désir principal étaient de soumettre le monde à sa domination, qui discourait incessamment pour séduire et captiver son entourage, et dont les hommes n'étaient jamais pour lui que serviteurs à sa cause. Ce portrait au vitriol, réfléchi, véritable travail d'écrivain, ne verse nullement dans la complaisance et la critique facile. Dominique de Pradt fut accusé par l'empereur de lui avoir fait manqué l'Europe lors de l'ambassade de Pologne, qui devait être le dernier rempart avant la chute de la Russie. De plus, l'ouvrage a le mérite de découvrir des points d'histoire ignorés, dans sa volonté de déterminer le système et les pensées de Napoléon, notamment d'exclure l'Angleterre de l'Europe et de confiner la Russie à sa position septentrionale.

In occasione del viaggio che l'autore fece proprio in quell'anno a Firenze, per compiere alcuni esperimenti sulla combustione dei diamanti, sfruttando le lenti dell'Accademia del Cimento, dono' una copia al Targioni che, capita l'importanza del testo, propose al Davy di collaborare alla traduzione. Questi forni' anche una serie di aggiunte derivate da esperienze successive all'edizione inglese del 1813. Questa del Piatti, quindi puo' considerarsi piu' che una semplice traduzione, una riedizione originale. Saltini, III, 636. ITA

      Bonn: N Simrock [PN] 1136, 1815. A very early edition of the piano-vocal score of the third version, issued less than a year after the first edition. Hirsch IV, 1138. Hoboken 2, 322. New Kinsky p. 450. The third version of Beethoven's only opera (originally entitled Leonore) was first performed May 23rd 1814 in Vienna. For this revision, the libretto of the first version, by Sonnleithner after Bouilly, was reworked by the poet G. F. Treitschke, and Beethoven made numerous changes to the score, including a new overture (now known as the Fidelio overture). The first version had premiered November 20th 1805; it was not a success, and Beethoven had made drastic cuts for its revival on March 29th 1806 before withdrawing the work altogether. "From the somewhat servile echoes of French and German light opera in the opening numbers, he [Beethoven] moved on to find an increasingly individual and elevated voice..." The New Grove Vol. 2, p. 383.. Oblong folio. Marbled boards with black leather title label gilt to spine.

        The Heroine, Or Adventures of Cherubina, by.

      London: Printed For Henry Colburn. 1815. - In three volumes. Third edition. (First published in 1813 as The Heroine, Or Adventures of a Fair Romance Reader.) Tall 12mo., cont. half calf, marble boards, leather spine labels, (xx), (21)-220; (ii), (1)-240; (ii), 252pp. Summers p.354 and Wolff 316 citing the first edition, Not in Sadleir. Bookplate on front pastedowns o/w a fine copy. "Inevitably, the ludicrous excesses of Gothic fiction invited satire. In contrast to Jane Austen's subtle ridicule of Gothic readers and Radcliffean heroines in "Northanger Abbey," Barrett's "The Heroine" is a merciless frontal assault on every form of Gothic nonsense from the delicate palpitations of Mrs. Radcliffe and her school to the crude sensationalism of the Gothic bluebookers and horror hacks. What Henry Fielding had accomplished in debunking the moral seriousness of Richardson, Barrett would do to the supernumerary horrors of the Gothic novelists. Barrett's sense of farce is vitriolic, his narrative method, brutal and corrosive mockery, his avowed purpose, the extermination of the Gothic virus itself. Yet, "The Heroine" is more than simply an extended sneer at 'the Salinas, Evelinas and Malvinas who faint and blush and weep through four half-bound octavos.' This is coherent parody in the best Aristophanic tradition. It sets out to laugh an audience back into its senses and the burlesque Gothic is so good as to be almost indistinguishable from the real Gothic itself at many points. Not a single feature of Gothic absurdity evades Barrett's irate eye, from wild rhetoric to place and character names. (Frank: First Gothics p. 21-22) Eaton Stannard Barrett [1786-1820] Irish writer, author of poetry, political and other satirical work. Born in Navan (though some sources give Cork) educated at Wandsworth near London where he was considered "something of a genius for writing and putting on a play." While he trained to be a lawyer he was not called to the Bar, but instead became a literary and political journalist. In 1807 using the pseudonym "Polypus" he published All the Talents: A Satirical Poem a "verse satire on the Whig-dominated government. The poem went through 19 editions in a year and Barrett followed it with three more political satires. Later Barrett turned to satire on the culture of the "decadent upper classes." In 1811 the Minerva Press published his "The Metropolis; Or A Cure for Gaming." In 1813 he published the above work as "The Heroine; or Adventures of a Fair Romance Reader" which was revised the next year under the title above and went into several editions.

Altogether GOOD CONDITION. +++ . \" As soon as he finished his medical studies in 1812, the Englishman Henry Holland (1788-1873) started on a journey lasting several months, the account of which he later published, with twelve engravings based on his own drawings. In his prologue, he emphasizes that he will not only describe archaeological sites and monuments, but also focus on the current situation in the country, because: The interest which the world now takes in Greece, refers not merely to ancient times, but regards also the future condition of a people who are again resuming a national character, and whom time and political changes may again raise to perfect independence. Holland sailed from Sicily to Zacynthos, where he was able to collect demographic and economic information on the rest of the Ionian Islands as well. When he reached the territory of Ali Pasha, he went first to Arta and then stayed for some time in Giannina. There, as a physician, he had the opportunity to become well acquainted with the infamous Pasha’s contradictory personality and to write on his administrative abilities. Holland was impressed too by the commercial and intellectual dynamism of Giannina’s inhabitants. He then continued on to Thessaly, visiting the monastic community at Meteora and the town of Tyrnavos. While in Larissa, he became acquainted with the Greek doctor, erudite and philosopher Ioannis Vilaras, whom he admired. After a short visit to Ambelakia, Holland reached Thessalonica, and wrote on life and commerce in that populous city. He then travelled to the Sporades islands, and subsequently went to Lamia and Thermopylae. He spent Christmas of that year in Delphi. Then, after visiting Livadeia, where he stayed in the home of Logothetis, a wealthy man of the community, he ended up in Athens, where he stayed for a month. In continuation, in the winter of 1813, Holland travelled to the Peloponnese (Corinth, Nemea, Mycenae, Argos, Tripolis, Patras). He then moved northwards. In Preveza he met with Ali Pasha once more and then reached devastated Souli. He visited various towns in Albania (Delvinaki, Argyrocastro (Gjirokastër), Tepeleni, Apollonia, Himara, Buthrotum (Butrint) and Aulona (Vlorë). Among other features of his chronicle, of special interest are the descriptions of the church of St Demetrios in Thessalonica, Dion, Lamia and Hydra, all quite rare for the era, as well as Holland’s most interesting observations on Athens. Holland then returned to England. In 1840 he became physician to the King. He travelled extensively in Europe and visited America six times. Holland died on his eighty-sixth birthday. The descriptions of the natural landscape, the numerical data he provides on various populations and their commercial and economic activities, and above all his capacity for insightful observation make Holland one of the most important travellers in the years that preceded the Greek Revolution.(from Travelogues/Travellers\'views).+++ 21,3 x 27,3 cm, 1,7 kg. +++ Stichwörter/Key -words: Reisebericht Griechenland Greece Travel account archeology Archäologie Antike Ionische Inseln Albanien Thessalien Mazedonien Versand D: 5,50 EUR

Stocks was eventually found not guilty. The transcript of the trial brings to light not only the detailed contractual history of the partnership, but also such contentious matters as the exact legal boundaries of neighbouring workings, as well as the status of a number of supposed agreements, both written and verbal. * Northowram is a small village in Calderdale, West Yorkshire, 2? miles north-east of Halifax and 6? miles from Bradford.
