        Epître sur la Révolution - La prise des Annonciades - Prospectus d'un journal en vaudevilles, dédié à l'Assemblée nationale - Poésies.

      3 volumes manuscrits, in-12,. 3ff.-223pp.-19ff. bl. - 2ff.-156pp.-53ff. bl. - 254pp.-2ff. bl. Plein chagrin brun, dos à nerfs, caissons à froid, titre dorés, monogrammes gothiques "AB" surmontés d'une couronne dorés en tête, dentelle dorées intérieure, tranches marbrées. Ex-libris manuscrit sur chaque volume : "Bibliothèque Louis de Bonnay 1815". Beaux exemplaires. Le marquis Charles-François de Bonnay est originaire d'une famille du Nivernais (également possessionnée en Bourbonnais, seigneurs de Vaumas, près Dompierre sur Besbre, seigneurie Des Morets, Trevol), il est lui-même né à dans le sud de la Nièvre à Cossaye (1750 - Paris 1825). Il fut d'abord page de Louis XV, puis s'engagea dans la carrière militaire, en 1780 il était maître de camp de Cavalerie. Il fut élu député de la noblesse du Nivernais aux Etats Généraux de 1789. Il fut suspecté d'avoir aidé Louis XVI dans sa fuite à Varennes, mais s'en disculpa. Il finit par émigrer en octobre 1791 à Coblence auprès du Comte de Provence (futur Louis XVIII) qui le nomma ministre à Varsovie puis en Angleterre. Sous Louis XVIII il fut ministre plénipotentiaire à Copenhague puis à Berlin. Nommé Pair de France il termina sa carrière comme gouverneur du château royal de Fontainebleau en 1821, et s'éteint à Paris en 1825. (Dictionnaire des parlementaires français de 1789 à 1889. Voir aussi : COURCELLE, Histoire généalogique et héraldique des pairs de France... Tome 6, pp. 68-70). Il eut d'un premier mariage une fille et un fils Joseph-Amédée (né en 1775) dont le prénom peut, peut-être, nous renseigner sur le monogramme présent sur la reliure, mais on ne sait rien d'un Louis de Bonnay. Charles-François se remaria en 1816 avec Catherine O'Neill (dont il n'eut pas d'enfant) ; on peut se plaire à imaginer que c'est elle qui a recopié les derniers poèmes.Le premier volume contenant l'Epitre sur la Révolution, La prise des annonciade et le Prospectus d'un journal, est la copie de l'édition de 1796 de cet ouvrage paru à Hambourg avec de nombreuses notes et variantes. La première édition des "Annonciades" avait été donnée novembre 1789 à Paris et ne comportait que 20 pages. Il s'agit du récit satyrique de l'attaque du couvent des Annonciades à Paris, par Charles de Lameth à la tête de 400 grades nationaux, pour y débusquer M. de Barentin (Garde des sceaux) qui se serait réfugié dans le couvent dont sa soeur était l'abbesse. Ils n'y trouvèrent qu'un vieux jardinier... Ce poème de 205 vers est heureusement complété par des notes qui éclaircissent avantageusement les noms et situations. Dans sa préface, l'éditeur annonce que l'Epitre sur la Révolution est inédit, et qu'il le fait suivre aussi de notes. Quant au "Prospectus d'un journal en vaudevilles", il avait déjà paru en 1790, et l'auteur s'y moque du ridicule et de la lourdeur soporifique des procès-verbaux de l'Assemblée nationale et propose que chaque discours, déclaration, motion, projets de décrets... soit désormais publié en chanson, sur des airs populaires dont il indique les titres selon les circonstances ou les orateurs. Les deux autres volumes sont des recueils de pièces de circonstance en vers, inédites, datés de "Nevers 1776" jusqu'au 23 janvier 1825 (Bonnay est mort le 25 mars de cette année là). L'écriture change après les derniers poèmes de 1816, et les huit dernières pièces sont copiées par une main différente. Il en ressort une atmosphère légère et charmante, parfois touchante et quelques fois drôle, dans laquelle se révèle la personnalité de l'auteur et l'expression d'une certaine vie de cour.

        Turkish emperors.

      London 1815 - A set of 6 mezzotint engravings printed in colours and finished by hand. Framed and glazed. Overall size: 27 by 22 inches. A superb set of Turkish emperors from the series "Recueil des Portraits des Empereurs Ottomans". Arguably the greatest series of colour plates on the Ottoman Empire, with engravings after portraits by a Greek peasant ``who displayed such proofs of natural talent as to induce the Emperor Selim to patronise him''.Young's work was first commissioned and patronised by Selim III, but production was halted in 1807 when the Sultan was assassinated by the Janissaries. Mahmoud II became Sultan in 1808 and in 1810 he gave Young permission to continue publication.

      [Dessiné à bord de la corvette. Drawn aboard the ship] 1815-1816. 1810 1 vol. in-folio (456 x 295mm.) comportant 18 dessins manuscrits à l'encre, dont trois en couleurs et 1 recto-verso, tous fixés sur onglets mobiles (liste complete sur demande). Cartonnage dépoque, dos de velours vert, plats de papier marbré. Riche ensemble de cartes et profils de côtes manuscrits, levés et dessinés par Antonio Gonzales, à bord de la fameuse corvette espagnole "Descurbierta" (La Découverte), durant des missions d'exploration menées de 1810 à 1816. La corvette Descurbierta est célèbre pour avoir été l'un des deux vaisseaux (le second étant l'Atrevida) de l'expédition de Malaspina (1786 à 1788 et de 1789 à 1794), le plus important voyage d'exploration commandité par l'Espagne au 18ème siècle. Alessandro Malaspina (1754-1810), sous-commission royale espagnole, entreprit cette campagne, dans la lignée des Cook et La Pérouse, pour recueillir des connaissances nouvelles pour la géographie, la cartographie et les sciences. L'expédition comptait un nombre important de scientifiques et fut conduite de manière très rigoureuse. Le second but de l'expédition était de donner un rapport sur le vaste empire espagnol, en particulier le long des côtes occidentales de l'Amérique du Nord, où les Russes et les Britanniques cherchaient à s'implanter. La Descurbierta et l'Atrevida partirent de Cadiz le 30 juillet 1789, faisant une première escale à Montevideo et Rio de la Plata, elles firent ensuite route au Sud le long des côtes de Patagonie et visitèrent les Isles Falkland, le Chili, le Pérou, le Mexique, Hawaï, le Kamtchatka, l'Alaska, les Philippines, les Îles Marianne, les Nouvelles Hébrides, la Nouvelle Zélande, l'Australie, et s'en retournèrent à Cadiz le 21 septembre 1793. Après cette important expédition, la Descurbierta resta en service en tant que vaisseau employé pour les missions scientifiques jusquen 1828. La corvette de 22 canons fut stationnée à Montevideo de 1804 à 1806 et à Callao (Lima) de 1810 à 1816. Elle reprit le chemin de Cadiz en 1816, pour être réparée. De 1816 à 1819, elle fut renvoyée en Amérique du Sud, pour prêter main forte aux expéditions du Général Morillo et Laborde contre les révolutionnaires de Colombie et du Venezuela. En 1821, elle revenait à Cadiz, et était finalement retirée du service en 1828. Le présent album rassemble 18 cartes originales, réalisées par lofficier Antonio Gonzales à bord de la Descurbierta de 1810 à 1816, lors de différentes campagnes. La première planche (chronologiquement, elle est reliée en avant dernière position) est datée de 1810, cest lune des plus impressionnantes de lensemble. Dessinée au recto et au verso de la page, elle compte six vues et profils de côtes de la Patagonie, et notamment un iceberg observé à 57° de latitude, 69° ouest, dans le sud de cette région. La première série datée de 1815 à 1816 compte sept vues de côtes asiatiques : Philippines (Détroit de Saint Bernardino), Indonésie (Île de Gaspard, détroit de Gaspard ou de Macclesfield, Pulo de Pisang en Mer de Chine, Pulo Babu dans le détroit de la Sonde) et Malaisie (Pulo Pisang). On trouve ensuite des cartes dAmérique du Sud : lîle de Santa Maria dans le Golfe de Californie au Mexique, Atacames en Equateur, Callao au Pérou, et six cartes du Chili : Coquimbo, Conception, Valdivia, lîle de Mocha, Quintero et Colliumo. La dernière carte représente lîle de Sainte Hélène. Les cartes et profils sont dressés et dessinés dune main très sûre, elles sont précises, richement légendées avec un souci esthétique certain. Elles donnent de nombreux détails sur les côtes visitées. Gonzales fut officier sur la Descurbierta pendant au moins six ans. Son dossier personnel est conservé aux archives centrales de la Marine espagnole. Ces cartes et vues sont inconnues et aucune publication ne référence les détails de ces campagnes : prolongations de lexpédition autour du monde de Malaspina. Car ce recueil montre bien que les Espagnols continuèrent à mener avec la Descurbierta des voyages dexploration scientifique et cartographique. Très bel ensemble.Liste des cartes : 1.

(187 x 295 mm., noir). 1 vol. folio. 18 manuscript ll., (ink drawings, 3 hand-coloured, 1 recto-verso, some folding). Bound in a contemporary album. A large set of manuscript maps and coast views drawn by Antonio Gonzales aboard the famous Spanish exploration ship Descurbierta (Discovery) during exploration journeys from 1810 to 1816. The corvette Descurbierta is famous for being one of the two ships (with the Atrevida) of the Malaspina's expedition (1786-1788, and 1789-1794), the most important voyage of discovery dispatched by Spain in the 18th century. Alessandro Malaspina (1754-1810), under a Spanish royal commission, undertook his voyage around the world to increase geographic and scientific knowledge in general: inspired by Cooks and La Perouses voyages, Malaspinas expedition counted numerous scientists aboard, and was conducted in a highly scientific manner. The second purpose of the expedition was to check on the status of Spain's vast empire, especially along the west coast of North America, where the Russians and the British were expanding their influence. The Descubierta and the Atrevida sailed from Cadiz on 30 July 1789, stopping first at Montevideo on the Río de la Plata, then sailing south along the coast of Patagonia and visiting the Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas), Chile, Peru, Mexico, Hawaii, Kamchatka, Alaska, Philippines, Mariana Islands. Coastal, New Hebrides, New Zealand, Australia and was back to Cadiz on 21 September 1793. After this great expedition, the Descurbierta stayed in service as a scientific ship up to 1828. The 22 guns corvette was stationed in Monte Video from 1804 to 1806 and Callao (Lima) from 1810 to 1816. In 1816, she went back to Cadiz in 1816 for repairing. From 1816 to 1819, she was again based in South America to help General Morillo and Laborde expeditions against insurgents in Colombia and Venezuela. Back to Cadiz in 1821, the Corvette was dropped out of service in 1828. The present collection of 18 original drawings was made by Officer Antonio Gonzales aboard of the Descubierta from 1810 to 1816, during different campaigns. The first plate is dated from 1810, and is one of the most striking leaves of the set. It is dedicated to Patagonia (recto-verso), with many views and coastal profiles and an amazing representation of an Iceberg observed by lat. 57° and 69 west, in the South of Patagonia. A large series, dated from 1816, is dedicated to Asia (China Sea, Philippines, Indonesia, and Malaysia). Then they cross the Pacific to arrive in Gulf of California, and going north, we find important maps of Chili and Peru (including a beautiful map of Conception: Plano de la Bahia de Concepcion de Chile). The last chart depicts Saint Helena. The quality of the charts is very nice, they are both accurate, richly captioned, and aesthetically realized. Gonzales was stationed at the corvette for at least 6 years. His personal file is at the Spanish navy central archives. Those maps and views are totally unknown and there is no recorded publication for the details of these campaigns, a continuation of Malaspina expedition round the world. It proves that the Spanish continued their scientific and cartographic exploration with the Descurbierta. The quality of the manuscript is great, giving lot of local details of the coasts visited.

        Lettres de Palissot, et quelques morceaux relatifs à la liaison de cet homme illustre avec A. H. Dampmartin.

      Paris 1815 Paris, 1815, in-8, [4]-328 pp., couvertes d'une écriture moyenne et très lisible (environ 20 lignes par page), texte réglé, maroquin cerise à long grain, dos à nerfs ornés de filets, pointillés, guirlandes et fleurons dorés, encadrement de simple filet doré sur les plats, tortillon doré sur les coupes, tranches dorées, dentelle intérieure (Thouvenin). La correspondance inédite de deux beaux esprits du siècle. C'est à la fin de mars 1789 que le jeune Dampmartin, de passage à Paris pour assurer la publication de son second ouvrage, se mit de lui-même en contact avec Charles Palissot de Montenoy (1730-1814), qui jouissait déjà d'une grande réputation dans le domaine des Lettres, et spécialement de l'art dramatique. Il s'ensuivit une amitié qui dura jusqu'à la mort du dramaturge, et se matérialisa par une correspondance abondante. Ici, Dampmartin ne reproduit que 74 lettres qui s'étagent du 9 juin 1789 au 15 décembre 1809, accompagnée d'un avertissement (pp. 1-12) et d'une nécrologie (pp. 13-37) introductifs. La plus grande partie remonte aux années 1789 et 1790, qui virent se former leur liaison. Il est curieux de noter l'alliance entre l'aristocrate qui devait émigrer et demeurer ensuite vivement éloigné des idées de la Révolution, avec le littérateur futur théophilanthrope, qui avait réussi à effrayer Robespierre par un virulent discours contre la religion tenu au Club des Jacobins ...Il faut dire que l'un et l'autre se retrouvèrent pour faire une cour assidue à Napoléon, ce qui réussit davantage à Palissot : il fut nommé bibliothécaire administrateur perpétuel de la Mazarine en février 1807, tandis que son ami devait encore attendre avant de récupérer de modestes fonctions de censeur à l'administration de la librairie. Précieux exemplaire de l'auteur lui-même avec double vignette ex-libris : légendée ("Bibliothèque de A.H. Dampmartin, commencée en 1775") et armoriée, contrecollées l'une au-dessous de l'autre sur les premières gardes. Très bel exemplaire.

        [MÉMOIRE] AUX RÉPUBLIQUES ÉQUINOXIALES, ET A CELLES QUI LEUR SERONT NATURELLEMENT CONFÉDÉRÉES

      [Paris], 1815. [2, manuscript title],[viii, manuscript letter],138,[3, index]pp., with original foliation of main text in manuscript. Quarto. Original plain brown wrappers bound into contemporary three-quarter morocco and marbled boards, gilt morocco label on front board. Minor shelf wear. Mild foxing, moderately but evenly toned, binder's ticket on front pastedown. Very good. An important manuscript treatise on constitutional theory, and a proposed system of government for the new republics emerging from the independence movements of South America, by French-American writer, economist, publisher, government official, and aristocrat Pierre Samuel du Pont de Nemours. Du Pont wrote numerous influential treatises on political and economic theory. This, his last major work, was never published and only survives in the present manuscript. This is almost certainly the manuscript Du Pont loaned to Thomas Jefferson for his comments and advice in the spring of 1816. Du Pont first came to prominence with his major economic treatise, PHYSIOCRATIE, OU CONSTITUTION NATURELLE DU GOUVERNEMENT LE PLUS AVANTAGEUX AU GENRE HUMAIN, written in 1768, in which he coined the term "physiocracy." He went on to become an economic advisor to Jacques Necker and King Louis XVI, serving as Inspector General of Commerce. Although he initially supported the French Revolution with other moderates like Lafayette, he soon became its victim, and was awaiting execution in 1794 when the Terror ended with the downfall of Robespierre. Still at odds with the French government, he emigrated to the United States in 1799 with his son, Eleuthere Irenée du Pont, who there founded E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Co., creating one of the great family dynasties in America. Pierre Samuel du Pont continued to write important works of political theory, and became a friend and correspondent of many leading figures in the United States, most notably Thomas Jefferson, whom he had first encountered in Paris in the 1780s. Between 1800 and 1817 they exchanged dozens of letters on various topics, including this manuscript. In 1800, at Jefferson's request, he drew up plans for a national educational system. In 1802 he returned to France, where he was an important promoter of the Louisiana Purchase. He remained in France and took an active part in the restoration of the monarchy in 1814. In the spring of 1815 he fled Paris during Napoleon's Hundred Days and returned to the United States, where he remained until his death in 1817. Du Pont's last major work, the RÉPUBLIQUES ÉQUINOXIALES was never published, and until the emergence of this manuscript from the estate of a Du Pont descendant, only known through references in his correspondence. Du Pont and Jefferson corresponded about the work in 1815 and 1816. The first reference appears in a letter dated May 26, 1815 where, amid a broader discussion of various political developments in South America, Du Pont alludes to what would prove to be one of his final literary undertakings and the impetus behind it: "Ten or twelve large republics are being created on your continent. They will establish themselves and grow stronger, although a few might be temporarily vanquished by the strength or weakness of European Spain. Three of these republics, which are already united, have done me the honor of consulting me....They had no idea yet about representative governments, and they had experienced the danger of tumultuous assemblies." In mentioning this "consultation," Du Pont refers to an occasion which must have occurred in Paris at some point in 1814. The collapse of Spanish government during the Napoleonic era had opened the door for independence movements in the Spanish colonies in the Americas. At that stage Manuel Palacio-Fajardo, representing the state of New Granada, approached Du Pont and asked him to draft a constitutional guide book for the practical and economical management of his fledgling republic. The manuscript has a dedicatory inscription to "Don M. Palacios" on the fly leaf. The main body of the manuscript, presumably executed in at least one secretarial hand, with the dedicatory epistle to Manuel Palacios-Fajardo in a second, distinctive (and likely authorial) hand. The colophon is dated with a holographic signature: "Paris 13 Mars 1815, Du Pont [de Nemours]." The manuscript shows abundant corrections in ink, with period repairs and pasted corrigenda to certain passages. The slightly later engraved ownership bookplate and various later owners' inscriptions tie the manuscript to the Du Pont family, including Frances "Fanny" du Pont (née Solana), Alexis and Elizabeth du Pont, and [A.I.] du Pont. Shortly after completing the manuscript Du Pont fled Paris to escape the returning Napoleon. By the time he wrote Jefferson in late May he was in Delaware. In December 1815, Du Pont visited Monticello and left a manuscript of the RÉPUBLIQUES ÉQUINOXIALES with Jefferson for his perusal. Du Pont had asked Jefferson on several earlier occasions to proofread and critique his latest writings, but only shortly after its dispatch, he asked Jefferson to return the manuscript. He explains the reason for this in his letter of December 20: "If you have read the MÉMOIRE AUX RÉPUBLIQUES ÉQUINOXIALES, I would be grateful if you could send it back to me, either directly if your franking privilege allows it, or through either the president or the secretary of state, who could get it to me under their countersignatures. I will send you another copy of it, which I am having prepared right now. But I need to give the former one to Don Pedro Gual, who has been sent to the United States by the republics that consulted me and that are united as New Granada. It may be that General Palacio has not received either of the two copies I sent him; and the opportunity of transmitting one personally to a civil officer of these republics is not to be neglected." Jefferson returned the manuscript sometime around the beginning of the new year, 1816, as may be inferred from his Dec. 31 and Jan. 3 replies to Du Pont. Having delivered the desired copy to deputy Don Pedro Gual, Du Pont then resent the manuscript of RÉPUBLIQUES ÉQUINOXIALES to Jefferson for his commentary. On March 31, 1816, Du Pont writes: "I have the honor of sending you again my little gospel for the use of the Spanish republics, which I brought to you four months ago. Thank God I have had and will still have several copies of it to give away, as I have only one secretary....This book on republics, newly born, to be born, or to be restored, is one of my writings for which I most desire your approval and blessing. I would like to find a good writer to translate it into Spanish." On April 24, 1816, Jefferson wrote Du Pont a long letter from his second home, Poplar Forest, discussing the manuscript in depth. Jefferson was critical of Du Pont's proposed system. In his observations on the dangerously oligarchic structure Du Pont recommended, Jefferson directly criticizes the arguments found in chapter twelve of the present manuscript, "Assemblée communal, seconde section: des assemblées de canton," and in its concluding chapters, feeling that the upper levels of government were too far removed from "the people." However, he praised Du Pont's "moral principles" and provides a ringing statement of his democratic theories of government. Jefferson evidently returned the manuscript to Du Pont with this letter. Until now the unpublished treatise, RÉPUBLIQUES ÉQUINOXIALES, has been known solely through the foregoing letters. Nevertheless, there are several crucial indications that the present manuscript is the working copy, now coming to light after two centuries in the care of the Du Pont family. The title and dates of composition, which match those signaled in the Jefferson correspondence; the dedicatory inscription and letter to M. Palacios, whom Du Pont identified as his intended recipient in his letter to Jefferson of Dec. 20, 1815; and, finally, the colophon, which Du Pont signed and dated, together allow for little doubt that this particular copy is identical with the literary work which Du Pont himself described, and thereafter sent twice, to his friend, Thomas Jefferson. The overall scope and narrative content of this newly rediscovered manuscript demonstrate that it must be the formerly "lost" treatise. It is clear that the chapter headings in the present copy (as outlined below) conform to Du Pont's more general interests and views on agriculture, economics, constitutional theory, and anthropology; these were themes which he discussed with an unwavering consistency throughout his other works. The body of the manuscript consists of sixteen chapters (several having complex groupings of subsections). The chapter headings are as follows: 1) "Objet et motifs de cet ouvrage"; 2) "Apperçu général"; 3) "Principes de la société"; 4) "Application de ces principes aux nouvelles républiques américaines"; 5) "Des mâitres et des esclaves"; 6) "Des engagés pour dettes"; 7) "Avantages de la liberation des esclaves"; 8) "Dignité et droits des propriétaires des terres et de mines"; 9) "Obligations attachées a la haute dignité des propriétaires des terres"; 10) "Principes des finances"; 11) "Des rapports entre les différentes classes d'hommes et de citoyens - articles de la constitution"; 12) "Hierarchie des administrations publiques inférieures"; 13) "De la représentation nationale"; 14) "De quelques institutions nécessaires"; 15) "De la grande confédération américaine"; 16) "Résumé de ce travail." One final observation on the "state" or "edition" of this manuscript: it seems likely that this particular copy represents a second (or possibly third) authorial recension of the text of RÉPUBLIQUES ÉQUINOXIALES. This is evidenced not only by the frequent revisions and corrections throughout, but also by a statement Du Pont makes in the manuscript's prefatory letter to Don Manuel Palacios, wherein he remarks on the superiority of this present state of the text: "J'ignore si la première copie du Mémoire ici joint a pu vous parvenir, et je vous envoie une seconde en peu corrigée." A monumental political work by the progenitor of the Du Pont family, a work thought lost for almost 200 years. Gilbert Chinard, THE CORRESPONDENCE OF JEFFERSON AND DuPONT DE NEMOURS (Paris, 1931).

        MÉMOIRE] AUX RÉPUBLIQUES ÉQUINOXIALES, ET A CELLES QUI LEUR SERONT NATURELLEMENT CONFÉDÉRÉES.

      [Paris]. March 1815. - [2, manuscript title],[viii, manuscript letter],138,[3, index]pp., with original foliation of main text in manuscript. Quarto. Original plain brown wrappers bound into contemporary three-quarter morocco and marbled boards, gilt morocco label on front board. Minor shelf wear. Mild foxing, moderately but evenly toned, binder's ticket on front pastedown. Very good. An important manuscript treatise on constitutional theory, and a proposed system of government for the new republics emerging from the independence movements of South America, by French-American writer, economist, publisher, government official, and aristocrat Pierre Samuel du Pont de Nemours. Du Pont wrote numerous influential treatises on political and economic theory. This, his last major work, was never published and only survives in the present manuscript. This is almost certainly the manuscript Du Pont loaned to Thomas Jefferson for his comments and advice in the spring of 1816. Du Pont first came to prominence with his major economic treatise, PHYSIOCRATIE, OU CONSTITUTION NATURELLE DU GOUVERNEMENT LE PLUS AVANTAGEUX AU GENRE HUMAIN, written in 1768, in which he coined the term "physiocracy." He went on to become an economic advisor to Jacques Necker and King Louis XVI, serving as Inspector General of Commerce. Although he initially supported the French Revolution with other moderates like Lafayette, he soon became its victim, and was awaiting execution in 1794 when the Terror ended with the downfall of Robespierre. Still at odds with the French government, he emigrated to the United States in 1799 with his son, Eleuthere Irenée du Pont, who there founded E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Co., creating one of the great family dynasties in America. Pierre Samuel du Pont continued to write important works of political theory, and became a friend and correspondent of many leading figures in the United States, most notably Thomas Jefferson, whom he had first encountered in Paris in the 1780s.

        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.

      Philadelphia: John Melish, 1815. - 8vo., (8 7/8 x 5 1/2 inches). 9 folding large folding engraved maps with original hand-coloring (maps with early repairs to verso, text leaves browned and spotted). Original half red roan on marbled paper boards (covers worn, loss of leather on corners, two of four linen ties remaining). Second and enlarged edition, a distinctive copy, for use in the field. This work was to provide a comprehensive survey of the main theatres of the conflict of the War of 1812, but inherent in this edition is the notion that there will be another conflict to follow. The inclusion of the Plan of Quebec showing the troop movements in 1759 preceding the Battle of the Plains of Abraham could be seen as a possible blueprint for imagined future American action. An important work in the history of early America defending her borders. First published in 1813, and including four large folding maps not present in the first edition: "Chart of East End of Lake Ontario, and River St. Lawrence from Kingston to St. Lawrence", "Map of the River St. Lawrence from Williamsburg to Montreal", "Map of the Seat of War among the Creek Indians", and the "Map of New Orleans". The other maps include: "Map of the Seat of War in North America", "View round the Falls of Niagara", "East End of Lake Ontario", "Montreal", "Map of the Southern Section of the United States", "Plan of Quebec", "Map of the American Coast", "Map of Detroit River". Melish published the first American-produced wall map depicting the country from coast to coast in 1816, distinguishing him as "the leading American map publisher of the second decade and placed American maps on equal footing with those produced by the prestigious firms in London and Paris." (Schwartz and Ehrenberg). Melish was inspired to create his celebrated wall map of America by a "very respectable friend" who noticed the "Map of the Seat of War" published here. He wrote to him "during the progress of war., when talking of the Map of the Seat of War, said 'I wish friend John, thee would make a Map of the Seat of Peace.' The hint was not lost. The author had seen the good effects of maps, particularly when accompanied by descriptions." (reported by Ristow). In his Preface Melish writes of this new edition: "The tumult of war having now happily subsided, the publisher presents 'The Military and Topographical atlas" in a new dress, calculated to illustrate the important operations in times that are past. As the materials of which this work is composes, were brought forward at different periods, and under various circumstances. Previous to the declaration of war, the author had travelled extensively in the northern and western parts of the United States, collecting information regarding the present state of the country; and from the materials procured during that journey, with others that were furnished him in Philadelphia, he compiled the "Map of the Seat of War", which had a most rapid and extensive sale".

        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.

Buona copia. La varietà Hokusai manga di soggetti, scene di vita quotidiana, ma anche scene di battaglia, anche scene di leggende tipicamente giapponesi, animali e fiori. "E 'generalmente considerato che, dopo un intenso periodo di produzione, Hokusai sélectionna molto attentamente i suoi schizzi, e anche ridisegnato un numero, disponendole secondo l'ordine che conosciamo oggi. Tuttavia, Michener sostiene che l'impostazione pagina in diversi schizzi su un dato bordo è stato effettivamente deciso dagli scrittori ed editori, non da Hokusai se stesso ". Wikipedia.

Cependant, Michener soutient que la mise en page des différents croquis sur une planche donnée a été en réalité décidée par les graveurs et les éditeurs, et non par Hokusai lui - même." Wikipedia.

        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.
