Illustrato da un titolo inc. con vedutina a colori e 9 suggestive vedute a colori inc. in rame f.t., protette da velina, non firmate, ma sicuramente scelte, e copiate in dimensioni ridotte, da quelle che i Lory, padre (Gabriel Ludwig) e figlio (Mathias Gabriel) avevano utilizzato per la prima edizione (Paris, 1811) della loro opera omonima in formato grande; raffigurano: Pont de S.

        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. Bellissimo esemplare, con timbro di stamperia sull'occhietto.

        Histoire de l'Ambassade dans le grand duché de Varsovie en 1812

      Chez Pillet, 1815. - Chez Pillet, à Paris 1815, in - 8 (12x20cm), (2f.) x ; xxij ; 239pp., relié. - Edizione originale. Rilegatura contemporanea in piena biondo pelle di pecora radicato. 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.

        [Op. 72]. Fidelio Oper in Zwey Aufzugen Nach dem französischen bearbeitet von F. Treitschke... Clavierauszug. Pr. 20 frs No. 1136. [Piano-vocal score]

      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. [1] (title), [2] (blank), [3] (cast list and table of contents), 4-159, [i] (blank) pp. Title lithographed. Cast, contents, and music engraved.

Beautifully printed, all in Latin with occasional liturgical directions in Spanish, of the masses for Holy Week, incl. Palm Sunday. The size of the lettering is large enough that the books must have been for altar use by the priest-celebrant. Palau [199404] records the set but notes that he had not seen it complete; he gives the location of the printers as Madrid, but there is no indication of this on the title-pages; a bookseller's ticket from Barcelona is pasted in one volume. OCLC records only one complete set, in the National Lbrary of Spain, and only one other partial set in a German library: none have appeared at auction. The volumes are in impeccable condition, fresh and clean, in a superb period marbled calf binding with gilt tooling, spines with red leather title labels and other gilt tooling.

        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

        Report of the trial of Michael Stocks, Esq. for wilful and corrupt perjury,

      8vo., (4) 109 (1)pp., with a list of errata on verso of final leaf, contemporary half calf over marbled boards, neatly rebacked and gilt lettered. A very good copy. This trial centred on an accusation that Michael Stocks had, without the consent of his two partners, taken and sold for his own private benefit 10,000 tons of coal from the partnership's coal mines at Northowram* in the West-Riding of Yorkshire. 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.

The second book, identified as volume 5 of Marsh's work, is paginated [4] & 61 & [1] pages. The preface (p.1-3) plus the printer's advertisement within the first work are printed in letterpress. The title page and contents, including the music, are all engraved. The title page and contents, including the music, in the second work are all engraved. The pages are toned with some soiling, minor foxing and staining. There are a few page corner creases.

First editions. From the library of Lucy Penniman, music instructor (1828) at the Female Classical Seminary in Brookfield, Mass. with her name printed in gilt within gilt decorations on a red leather label with adorns the front cover.Nine lines of manuscript titled "Musick" are penned, most probably by Penniman, on 4-5/8 inch high by 8 inch wide fine cream paper mounted by the corners with red wax onto the front blank. One of the corners of this manuscript page is torn. The lines are quoted from Sir Walter Scott's "Halidon Hill".According to Kidson ["British Music Publishers, Printers and Engravers", London, 1900], Preston used this imprint from 1801 through 1822.The English composer, diarist and writer John Marsh (1752-1828) was a lawyer by training and quite the renaissance man, with interests ranging far beyond the law and music to include astronomy, philosophy, religion and geometry. Marsh was perhaps the most prolific English composer of his time, having written at least 350 musical compositions, including 39 symphonies. While he is remembered mostly for his music, he also wrote books on astronomy, religion and geometry. RARE.
