        Les monumens de la France classés chronologiquement et considérés sous le rapport des faits historiques et de l'étude des arts.

      Paris, Didot 1816-36. - 2 Bände. Imperial-Folio (57 x 42 cm). [2] Blatt, IV, 94 Seiten; [3] Blatt, 52 Seiten. Mit einem ganzseitigen Frontspiz in Bd. 1, 2 gestochenen Titelvignetten und 258 Kupferstich-Tafeln, davon 23 doppelblattgroß. Grünes Halbleder 19. Jahrh. mit Rückenvergoldung (Bd. 1 siginert ANDRIEUX). Einbände etwas berieben, die Bünde stärker. Teils etwas fleckig und stockfleckig, im Ganzen sehr sauber und frisch. Mehrere Tafeln verbunden, meist an topographische Parallelstellen. Brunet III, 714. Vicaire IV, 749. Graesse IV, 58. Alexandre Louis Joseph Comte de Laborde (1773-1842) war wohlhabender Erbe eines Hofbankiers, Reise- und Kunstschriftsteller, Brigadegeneral, Jugendfreund Chateaubriands, Begleiter und Brautwerber für Napoleon, Diplomat und Politiker. Eine umfangreiche Würdigung des Verfassers und der hier vorliegenden "äußerst raren" Bände wurde verfasst von Christl Lehnert-Leven unter dem Titel "Zum Ruhme des Vaterlandes. Trierer Antiken in den Prachtbänden der 'Monumens de la France' von Alexandre Louis Joseph Comte de Laborde" und findet sich im Katalogband der Ausstellung "Unter der Trikolore. Sous le drapeau tricolore. Trier in Frankreich - Napoleon in Trier. Trèves en France - Napoléon à Trèves, hg. von Elisabeth Dühr und Christl Lehnert-Leven, Trier und Saarbrücken 2004, S. 784-822. Das umfangreiche Werk erschien demnach in 45 Lieferungen (anfänglich geplant 36) über den Zeitraum von 20 Jahren und der Preis für diesen Luxusartikel entsprach etwa dem Jahresgehalt eines Richters am Zivilgericht oder drei bis fünf Jahresgehältern eines Fabrikarbeiters. Da Trier zu Beginn der Studien Labordes innerhalb des französischen Staatsgebietes lag, fand es Aufnahme in der Publikation mit insgesamt 10 Blättern: drei Ansichten der Igeler Säule, ein Blatt mit Details dazu, Fragmente in Trier u.a., Ansichten des Domes, der Kaiserthermen und der Basilika sowie die beiden einzigartigen Doppelblätter mit der Porta Nigra während der Freilegung aufgrund des Befehls Napoleons. Die korrekte Tafelanzahl für ein vollständiges Exemplar wäre 258 Tafeln, obwohl in allen uns bekannten Bibliothekskatalogen 259 Tafeln genannt werden. Das ist schlichtweg falsch, da zwei Tafeln (CLXXX und CLXXXIIII) auf einem Blatt gedruckt wurden. Gutes Exemplar dieser seltenen Prachtpublikation in signiertem Einband des Pariser Buchbinders Andrieux, der Buchbinder für das Haus Orléans war.

        Voyage de Découvertes aux Terres Australes. Sur les corvettes le Géographe, le Naturaliste, et la goelette le Casuarina, pendant les années 1800, 1801, 1802, 1803 et 1804

      Paris 1816 - Three volumes, small and large quarto; the two-volume text with portrait frontispiece and two folding tables; the two-part large quarto atlas (bound in one volume) containing 40 plates (23 coloured and two folding) and 14 maps (two double-page and folding); French half maroon roan and contemporary glazed boards. The official account of the important Baudin voyage to Australia and the Pacific, including a wonderful series of images of people and places, among them a famous suite of portraits of Australian Aborigines, and including among its maps the earliest published complete map of Australia. The well-equipped Baudin expedition was one of the great French voyages of discovery, and made significant visits to Western Australia, Tasmania and Sydney. The coastal explorations are commemorated by numerous place-names along the Australian coast.Baudin's voyage, commissioned by Napoleon, was, like that of Flinders, intended to make a detailed examination of the Australian continent. The contemporaneous French and English voyages crossed paths in their explorations, famously meeting at Encounter Bay in South Australia in 1802. Despite their spirit of co-operation, it would ironically be the French action in holding Flinders prisoner on Mauritius for six years that delayed publication of Flinders' map of the continent and allowed the French to publish the first such complete and detailed chart. Sometimes said to have been at least partly based on Flinders' charts and papers seized by the French, this is one of the most beautiful, as well as one of the most famous of all maps of Australia. Baudin himself died in the course of the voyage, and the narrative of the expedition begun by Péron, the expedition's naturalist, was completed by Louis de Freycinet after Péron's death. Freycinet's brother Henri was responsible for much of the mapping. Louis de Freycinet would go on to command his own famous expedition some fifteen years later. The exceptional illustrations are mostly by the remarkable artists Petit and Lesueur: "Lesueur's scientific work runs parallel to artistic work of great importance. He was at one and the same time draughtsman and painter, naturalist and landscape artist. His talent was recognised in France in his own lifetime, by the award? of the silver medal of the Société des Beaux-Arts?" (Baudin in Australian Waters, p. 26). As well as the detailed imagery and scientific record, the expedition brought back some 100,000 natural history specimens (as against around 4000 collected by the Flinders voyage). Numerous live animals and plants were collected for Josephine's celebrated estate at Malmaison, and the vignette on the title-page of the book shows emus, black swans and kangaroos under gum trees in the Empress' garden.A section on the hydrography of the voyage, separately published and actually distributed by a different bookseller, is sometimes added to this narrative to form a larger set. However the format offered here is how the publication is normally seen with two volumes of text and two parts of the atlas, often referred to as the "general reader's set" Slight worming affecting margins of five leaves, a few odd spots or stains, but generally an excellent set, neatly rebacked to period style.

Smith, keeper of prints in the British Museum, one from James Northcote, the other from Thomas Stothard. Two pictorial signed letters from H.

George Arnald while mostly remembered as landscape and topographical painter, also was known to a lesser extent as a painter of portraits, including Sir Robert Peel, Duke of Wellington, and William Wordsworth (who is known to have bemoaned Arnald's literary ignorance). Provenance : passed through the family by descent. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        View of the Fair Merchant Yard from East and View of the Fair Cathedral from South.

      mid. XIX c. - Pair of engravings (app. 21.5 by 29 cm), contemporary hand colour. The history of the fair in Nizhniy Novgorod spans more than five centuries. From the mid-XVI century it was known as Makaryev Fair and was held annually near Makaryev Monastery in the Nizhniy Novgorod region. Following the destruction of the fair by fire in 1816 it was moved to the Nizhniy Novgorod city. Famous French architect Auguste de Montferrand, best known for constructing St. Isaac's Cathedral and Alexander's Column in Saint Petersburg, was entrusted with designing a fair complex and a cathedral that later became known as Staroyarmarochny. The project was completed in 1822. Gradually, the groundwater eroded the artificial ground on which the cathedral stood and caused numerous cracks in its walls. It was restored by the architect Robert Kileveyn and re-consecrated in 1888. The bell tower standing next to the cathedral was also replaced by a new one constructed in the same design. The fair itself played a major role in the Russian trade and by the mid-XIX century it became a centre of the commerce of the Empire, where merchants would sell up to half of the total production exported outside Russia. It attracted many foreign merchants from India, Iran, and Central Asia making it a place where the East met the West. As a result of the economic instability in Russia in the beginning of XX century the fair business started to stagnate, which eventually led to the closure of the Nizhniy Novgorod Fair in 1929. Nowadays, Spassky Cathedral belongs to one of the few surviving original fair buildings, until the XXI century.

        NAVIGAZIONI DI COOK PEL GRANDE OCEANO E INTORNO AL GLOBO PER SERVIRE D'INTRODUZIONE ALLA RACCOLTA DE' VIAGGI PIU INTERESSANTI ESEGUITI DOPO QUEL CELEBRE NAVIGATORE NELLE VARIE PARTI DEL MONDO.

      Milan, Milan, Sonzogno e Comp., 1816. 7 volumes, complete set, FIRST EDITION, Italian text, 1816-17. 12mo, approximately 170 x 100 mm, 6½ x 4 inches, portrait of Cook engraved by Giuseppe dall'Acqua as frontispiece to Volume I, folding black and white map of the world at rear of Volume I. 29 very good plates by dall'Acqua, 27 nicely HAND COLOURED by Lazzaretti, pages xl, 212, (1); 334, (1); 286, (1); 318, (1); 393, (1); 305, (1); 286, each volume has a half-title and an unnumbered plate list at the end, except in Volume VII where the plate list precedes the index, bound in half calf over speckled light brown boards, all nicely rebacked with raised bands and 2 gilt decorated and lettered contrasting morocco labels (originally published in printed wrappers), Volume V which is a copy from another set, recornered and with replacement boards which are a very good match with the others. Some corners and some board edges slightly worn, some light damp staining and other small light stains some are unsightly, plus occasional very light soiling to most volumes, mainly to margins, except Volume V which is clean and bright, Volume I: light damp staining to upper inner corners of title page and frontispiece with a couple of dark spots, lighter staining to upper margin persists throughout, small closed tear at inner edge of map with neat repair on reverse, small split to edge of 1 fold affecting margin only, Volume II: large light brown damp stain to title page, first 11 leaves and plate of Principessa di Taiti (hardly noticeable), another plate has small light damp stain to upper corner affecting sky only, Volume III: a few dark spots to lower outer corner from half-title to page 81 and then intermittently to the end, Volume V: small closed tear to middle of 1 text page, no loss, Volume VI: light brown damp stain to upper third of last 8 leaves, strongest on plate list and rear endpaper but not obscuring text. Bindings tight and firm. A good set of an Italian account of the voyages of Cook and of some of his predecessors with interesting well executed plates. The first 2 volumes describe the voyages of those navigators who preceded Cook: Byron, Carteret, Wallis, Bougainville and Surville. Volumes III and IV recount Cook's first voyage, Volume V his second voyage and Volumes VI and VII his third voyage including the continuation by Captain King after Cook's death on Hawaii. This is a new Italian translation of the three voyages based on various sources alluded to but not named in the publisher's preface. This edition is especially notable for the coloured plates which show natives and their customs and rituals, their ships, a kangaroo, walrus hunting, the death of Captain Cook, and various scenes. 2 uncoloured plates show tools and weapons. The Death of Cook is the typical scene after Webber showing Cook ordering his Marines to cease fire. Beddie, Bibliography of Captain Cook, 86; Forbes, Hawaiian National Bibliography, 449.

        Voyage de Découvertes aux Terres Australes, éxecuté par ordre de Sa Majesté l'Empereur et Roi, sur les corvettes le Géographe, le Naturaliste, et la goelette le Casuarina, pendant les années 1800, 1801, 1802, 1803 et 1804; the COMPLETE SET, described as Ferguson 449, 536 & 603

      Paris: L'Imprimerie Impériale, 1816. First edition. Hardcover. Very good overall. The rare complete official narrative and hydrography of the Baudin-Freycinet Expedition, most volumes in the original papered boards and all uncut. To quote Rodney Davidson, it is "among the finest items of Australiana ever published... They recount an outstanding voyage of discovery... In complete form the journals are exceedingly rare". The expedition was sent out by the French government in 1800 with orders to complete the cartographic survey of the Australian coast. Commanded by Nicolas Baudin, the expedition left France in 1800 and sailed via Mauritius to the Western Australian coast in the region of Cape Leeuwin, arriving in May 1801. Peron sailed as naturalist on the expedition and Freycinet as cartographer. The vessels, Geographe and Naturaliste, sailed north from Cape Leeuwin, charting the mouth of the Swan River, site of present day Perth. After three months in Timor, the two ships set out for Tasmania, continuing to make surveys and a close study of Tasmanian aborigines and their material culture. They continued on to New South Wales, creating a fine panorama of the town of Sydney, as well as views and a town plan. They then undertook a complete survey of the southern coast and an examination of the northern coast before returning to Mauritius where, near the end of 1803, Baudin died. The voyage brought back to France the most important collection of natural history specimens in the history of the French Museum, as well as a wealth of geographical and other information. Many of these specimens were maintained at Malmaison, the chateau of Josephine & Napoleon on the outskirts of Paris. The narrative of the expedition was begun by Peron, and completed by Freycinet after Peron's death. A tacit agreement between Peron and Freycinet, both of whom disliked Baudin, kept the commander's name mostly absent from the present official account of the expedition. Mathew Flinders completed his survey of the Australian coast on behalf of the English before Baudin, but his imprisonment by the French in Mauritius for seven years resulted in the French exploration account being published first. English concerns for French intentions were justified, but there was an amicable famous meeting of the two expeditions at a bay in South Australia subsequently named Encounter Bay. Consequently, the Baudin-Freycinet narrative includes the first complete and fully detailed map of the coastline of the Australian continent. It is a cartographic milestone, artfully done, as exemplified by the French artistry of the time. The southern coast is almost entirely named "Terre Napolean," indicating France's colonial ambitions. A highlight of the numerous plates and maps includes an engraved portrait of Peron, done within days of his death; coastlines of Tasmania, South Australia, Western Australia and Queensland; exquisite natural history plates illustrating the the spectacularly different Australian fauna - kangaroo, wombat, platypus, Tasmanian tiger & emu, many hand-colored; 11 views including two folding, panoramic views of Sydney and Timor; 19 ethnographic portraits, 17 of which are of Tasmanian & New South Wales aborigines with examples of their material culture; charts, coastal profiles, views and plans of Sydney & of islands and harbors around Australia and Timor including Tasmania, Western Australia (including Perth, Albany & Shark Bay); and South Australia. The Baudin-Freycinet narrative is not always found complete, as the navigational text and atlas were issued on different dates and sold separately from the narrative "Historique." The specialized nature of the navigational section, including the text which constitutes a pilot to the Australian coast, meant that it was not often added to copies of the narrative section. However, as first full atlas of the Australian coastline, its cartographical contribution is of extraordinary value. F 449- Historique. 2 volumes 4to text, 2 volumes sml. folio atlas.

        The History of the Colleges of Winchester, Eton, and Westminster.

      London: R. Ackermann,, 1816. With the Charter-House, the Schools of St. Paul's, Merchant Taylors, Harrow, and Rugby, and the Free-School of Christ's Hospital. Large quarto (340 x 275 mm). Mid-20th-century straight-grain red morocco by Bayntun, flat bands gilt to spine, title gilt to second compartment, two-line frames and fan cornerpieces gilt to remaining compartments, concentric fillets gilt to sides enclosing a broad hop and vine-leaf roll and an inner dotted roll gilt, large cornerpieces built up from fan and floral tools, gilt edges, broad foliate roll gilt to turn-ins, marbled endpapers, bound brown silk page-markers. Housed in a custom red cloth slipcase. 44 aquatints after Gendall, Mackenzie, Pugin, and Westall, and 4 line-engravings of costume after Uwin, all hand-coloured. Joints very lightly rubbed in sections, a few faint, almost imperceptible scores to front board, small spot to margin of frontispiece, tissue-guard creased, mild foxing to title page, more heavily to binder's blanks, occasional, very light offsetting, small spray of pale mottling to plate 24, tiny fore-edge nick to plate 25, otherwise a few trivial spots or marks. An excellent copy with generous margins. First edition, second issue as usual, plate 26, "Charter House from the Playground", with cricketers instead of washerwomen, and plates 5 and 23, "Winchester College, from the Meadow" and "Westminster School Room", both in the preferred first state. With a copy of the very rare first issue, second state of the Charter House plate laid in, retaining the washerwomen, the title erased. (Tooley considered the first issue, first state, with the washerwomen and the original title, "Charter House School …", to be "extraordinarily rare"; he had only ever seen one copy.) The History of the Colleges, printed in a run of 1,000 copies, which were then issued in twelve monthly parts from 1 January 1816, was the culmination of the series of fine topographical books which established Ackermann's reputation, and which are "widely held to be among the most beautiful illustrated books of the first half of the nineteenth century" (ODNB); with Ackermann's Oxford and Cambridge in particular it forms a "magnificent trilogy" (Hardie). Tooley noted that "Ackermann's 'Schools' is more popular than his 'Oxford' and 'Cambridge' and occurs less frequently for sale … The two states of the first issue, and the second issue are all desirable". The text is by William Combe, author of Dr Syntax, and W. H. Pyne. The plates, which are mainly after Westall, Pugin and Mackenzie, demonstrate the full range of these artists' capabilities, from detailed architectural studies to Arcadian landscapes and Regency interiors, and in this splendidly bound copy are preserved in exceptionally fresh condition, the plates watermarked 1812, the text-leaves 1816.

        Europe after the Congress of Vienna

      Artist: Neele ; issued in: London; date: 1816 - - technic: Steel engraving; colorit: original colored; condition: Printed on 4 sheets joined together, folds partly restored; size (in cm): 102 x 124; description: Decorative and impressive map of total Europe after the Congress of Vienna, 1814. The Congress of Vienna was a meeting of ambassadors of European states chaired by Austrian statesman Klemens von Metternich, and held in Vienna from November 1814 to June 1815, though the delegates had arrived and were already negotiating by late September 1814. The objective of the Congress was to provide a long-term peace plan for Europe by settling critical issues arising from the French Revolutionary Wars and the Napoleonic Wars. The goal was not simply to restore old boundaries but to resize the main powers so they could balance each other off and remain at peace. The leaders were conservatives with little use for republicanism or revolution, both of which threatened to upset the status quo in Europe. France lost all its recent conquests, while Prussia, Austria and Russia made major territorial gains. Prussia added smaller German states in the west, Swedish Pomerania and 60% of the Kingdom of Saxony; Austria gained Venice and much of northern Italy. Russia gained parts of Poland. The new Kingdom of the Netherlands had been created just months before, and included formerly Austrian territory that in 1830 became Belgium.

Aber auch diese Publikation mußte nach nur 3 Jahren ihr Erscheinen einstellen.The first journal devoted to ophthalmology was founded in 1802 by Himly and Schmid. It was discontinued in 1805 after the appearance of 3 volumes. 11 years later Himly started the present continuation, but he published only the two present volumes, which are of great importance in the history of ophthalmology. Himly professor of ophthalmology in Göttingen, employed hyoscyamus to dilate the pupil as a preliminary to cataract extraction, and it is to him the honors should be given as the first to make an extensive use of mydriatics in ophthalmological surgery.Hirschberg 482 Ovi I, 602 Chance 133, 164 Arrington 104 Gorin, 68ff.

        Mansfield Park.

      London: Printed for J. Murray,, 1816. A novel. In three volumes. By the author of "Pride and Prejudice." Second edition. 3 volumes, duodecimo (173 x 107 mm). Rebound to style in brown half calf, red morocco labels to spines, ruled and decorated in gilt in compartments, marbled paper sides, edges speckled brown. Top edges dust toned, very light foxing to text throughout; an excellent, bright set. Second edition of Austen's third novel. The first edition was published by Egerton in May 1814, in a run of 1,250 copies. In November 1814 Austen wrote to a friend reporting that all copies of the first edition had been sold, and that the question of a second edition had therefore been raised. However Austen was believed to have been dissatisfied with Egerton as a publisher, both in terms of the print quality of the first edition and in his abilities as a salesman (Gilson, p. 59). She therefore decided to change publisher for the second edition, sending a corrected copy of the work to John Murray in December 1815. The second edition contains a number of changes to the text, "most noticeably in the technical details - probably on advice from one of the sailor brothers" (ibid.).

        The Principles of Population and Production, as they are affected by the Progress of Society; with a view to Moral and Political Consequences.

      Baldwin, Cradock, and Joy, London., 1816. First edition. Octavo. pp xl, 493, [i] adverts. Period quarter leather with marbled boards, recently rebacked and with endpapers renewed.The author's major work, a direct challenge to Malthusian warnings of the dangers of population growth. Indeed, Weyland argues that economic progress depends on the stimulus provided by such growth to a level ''just beyond the plentiful supply of the people's want''. Malthus was stung to an intemperate rebuttal in an appendix to the fifth edition of his Essay on the Principle of Population: "It is quite inconceivable how a man of sense could bewilder himself in such a maze of futile calculations, and come to conclusions so diametrically opposite to experience."Ownership signature on second blank. Some foxing to prelims. Faint traces of damp to inner margins of first gathering. Very good. The title-page raises some questions: it shares some of the foxing of the surrounding pages, but is printed on slightly thinner paper (an early facsimile insert?, a later facsimile insert on period paper?). Scarce: there was only one nineteenth century edition.

The plates, which are mainly after Westall, Pugin and Mackenzie, demonstrate the full range of these artists' capabilities, from detailed architectural studies to Arcadian landscapes and Regency interiors, and in this splendidly bound copy are preserved in exceptionally fresh condition, the plates watermarked 1812, the text-leaves 1816. Abbey, Scenery 438; Hardie pp. 106 & 311; Tooley 3. [Attributes: First Edition]
