        Rosa bracteata

      Paris 1817 - This beautiful stipple engraving is from Pierre Joseph Redoute's Les Roses. The work was published in Paris by Firmin Didot between 1817 and 1824. The text was written by Claude Antoine Thory.Redoute's name is synonymous with beauty and in the world of botanical art he is known as the best. The work proved to be not only outstanding in terms of its beauty but also for its scientific merits. Many of the images were after Thory's personal collection as well as the rose garden of the Empress Josephine's garden at Malmaison. Redoute and Thory described almost all of the important roses that were known in their time. Lawalree describes the text as being 'of outstanding importance to both botanists and horticulturalists.Redoute's fame is due in large part to his diligent effort to perfect the use of stipple engraving. This labor intensive, and therefore expensive, technique creates subtle yet stunning variations of color making it superior to the engraving alone. Each plate was created using the 'a la poupee' process in which the color was applied before the printing. Hand-finished coloring was painstakingly applied after printing.Redoute was renowned for his artistic ability and tutored such people as Queen Marie-Antoinette, Empress Josephine, Marie-Louise, and Queen Marie-Amelie. Redoute influenced a breadth of artists that followed him including Turpin, Poiteau, Bessa, and Prevost. Redoute is widely considered the finest botanical illustrator of the early 19th century, if not throughout history.The process of stipple engraving and color printing give the Redoute Rose prints their luminous quality. Stippling is an etching process that employs dots instead of lines to form the image, which is then color printed by applying colored inks directly to the copper plate for each impression. The use of colored inks, greens and browns to print the stems and leaves, and reds and pinks to print the flowers, create a more luminous print by eliminating the necessity to paint watercolor over a back inked image. --- The work is in very good to excellent condition. There is an occasional faint fox mark or imperfection to be expected with age. Please review the image carefully for condition and contact us with any questions.

        Albert Durers Designs of the Prayer Book.

      London: Published September 1st, 1817, R. Ackermann’s Lithographic Press. - Folio (38 x 27 cm.): [4], 8 pages; [1], 43 leaves of lithographed plates, printed mostly in single colors (black, red, green, mauve, and grey) and two printed in black and red, plus frontispiece portrait of Dürer (p. [2]). Bound in 19th century half-calf over marbled boards, expertly rebacked in black cloth with old calf spine overlaid; minor spotting and foxing on some leaves. From the library of Swedish antiquarian bookseller Björn Löwendahl (1941-2013), with pencil signature on title page of Herbert W. Bryans dated 1895, almost certainly Herbert William Bryans (1855-1925), British artist and stain glass designer. THE FIRST MAJOR BOOK PRINTED IN BRITAIN BY MEANS OF LITHOGRAPHY. As documented by Abbey and Twyman, a few earlier attempts to print books using lithography were made in the Britain, but Ackermann’s book is "the first serious attempt to popularize the new method" (Abbey). Dürer’s marginal drawings for the manuscript prayer book of the Emperor Maximilian, now in the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek in Munich, were considered a national treasure in Germany, and lithography was used to produce several facsimile editions of it. Alois Senefelder, the inventor of lithography, printed an edition in Munich in 1808 entitled Albrecht Dürers Christlich-Mythologische Handzeichnungen, which included 43 border designs printed in several single colors matching those that Dürer had originally used. Ackermann’s 1817 edition, the first important production from his lithographic press, used plates that were copied from Senefelder’s 1808 edition by an unknown artist. The book’s title page was printed in red and black, as was a single text page of the original manuscript. According to Michael Twyman, "These two pages may well be the earliest examples of colour lithography from separate stones to have been produced in Britain" (Twyman (2013), p. 36). REFERENCES: J. R.

Bemerkungen: Seltene Erstausgabe in 2 Bänden - Johann Evangelist Fürst (1784 - 1846) erzielte 1817 mit seinem „Bauer Strüf“ eine weite Verbreitung in der ländlichen Kultur seiner Zeit. Meist der sog. Hausvaterliteratur zugerechnet übersteigt dieses im Stile einer dialogisch angelegten Erzählliteratur wissensreiche Kompendium landwirtschaftlich-forstökonomischen Wissens seiner Zeit dieses Genre bei Weitem. Es gibt umfassenden Einblick in die Agrarkultur der Zeit versehen mit unzähligen Erfahrungsschätzen zur Steigerung von Produktivität und Ökonomie in der Hof- und Hauswirtschaft. Grund für die weite Verbreitung dieses Werkes war die Wahl des Erzählstils, durch den das dargebrachte Wissen gewissermaßen seine agrarpädagogische Methode fand. „Johann Evangelist Fürst wurde am 28. Dezember 1784 im niederbayerischen Frauendorf bei Vilshofen als sechstes Kind der Bauerseheleute Michael und Katharina Fürst geboren. Im Wesentlichen geht es um die Geschichte der Familie von Simon ‘Strüf’ – ein so genanntes Anagramm zu ‘Fürst’ und somit auf Johann Evangelists Bruder gemünzt – und seiner Ehefrau Theres im fiktiven ostniederbayerischen Ort ‘Lichtendorf’. Die Strüfs schaffen es in schwieriger Zeit zu Wohlstand zu kommen. (Sie) nutzen (die) rationelle Verbesserungen in der Feld-, Wiesen-, Garten-, Haus- und Hofwirtschaft mit Obst-, Gemüse-, Kräuter-, Flachs-, Ölpflanzen-, Hopfen- und Tabakanbau, Obstbaum-, Vieh- und Bienenzucht, Unkraut- und Schädlingsvernichtung sowie vermehrtem Düngemitteleinsatz u.a. (Fürst) stellte. (auf seinen Gütern) im Frühjahr 1820 den ehemaligen Schlossgärtner von Irlbach bei Straubing, Herbert Rudolph Diecker, an, der aus dem friesischen Emden stammte und sieben Jahre in Fürsts Diensten blieb. Ab Herbst 1821 schickte er diesen besonders in Pomologie fachkundigen und belesenen Mann durch ganz Bayern für eine Bestandsaufnahme in Sachen Obstkultur und auch zum Erfahrungsaustausch mit Freunden der Gartenkultur. Diecker hatte weit reichende Verbindungen zu Deutschlands führenden Pommologen der Zeit – z. B. dem Arzt Adrian Diel im rheinischen Diez an der Lahn, der 1819 erst ein neunbändiges ‘System der in Deutschland vorkommenden Kernobstarten’ abgeschlossen hatte, ferner dem Württemberger Pfarrer Johann Ludwig Christ, dem Thüringer Pfarrer Johann Volkmar Sickler, Verfasser von ‘Der teutsche Obstgärtner’, oder dem fränkischen Adeligen Christian Freiherr Truchseß von Wetzhausen zu Bettenburg. Dadurch gelang es Fürst, aus vielen Baumschulen im In- und Ausland alle möglichen Sorten von Kern- und Steinobst nach Frauendorf zu holen.weitere Informationen auf der Homepage des Bundes Akademie Verlags.

        Genealogical memoir of the family of Montmorency, styled de Marisco or Morres ; ancient lords de Marisco and de Montemarisco, in the Peerage of England and Ireland - most' respectfully addressed to His Majesty Louis XVIII (.).

      Paris, J.R. Plassan 1817 - in-4, [6]-75-[4]-XXXVI-[2]-CCCLXIII pp., un f. n. ch. d'errata, avec 26 planches de monuments gravées sur cuivre par Lambert, demi-veau blond, dos à nerfs orné de filets dorés, pièce de titre cerise, tranches mouchetées (rel. un peu postérieure). Bon exemplaire. Très rare justificatif généalogique en faveur de la famille de Montmorency-Morres-Marisco, établie en Irlande et toujours subsistante : elle descendrait de Geoffroy de Montmorency, frère de Bouchard IV (mort en 1131), qui fit souche en Angleterre à la fin du XIe siècle. A la Restauration, elle chercha à se faire reconnaître en France comme l'une des branches de la maison de Montmorency, encore largement représentée par des héritiers mâles en ce début du XIXe siècle. A cet effet, Hervey Redmond de Mountmorres (né en 1767), chef de la branche catholique de sa famille, s'appuyait sur un acte du Prince-régent (le futur George IV), en date du 27 juin 1815, et accordant à la branche protestante le droit de porter les nom, armes et devise des Montmorency. Cet acte fut communiqué le 22 septembre 1815 au duc de Montmorency, chef de nom et d'armes, mais le moment comme le fond de l'affaire étaient vraiment mal choisis . Aucun exemplaire au CCF. Saffroy III, 46115. Exemplaire de la duchesse Guyonne-Elisabeth-Josèphe de Luynes, née Montmorency-Laval (1755-1830), épouse de Louis-Joseph-Charles-Amable d'Albert de Luynes (1748-1807, sixième duc) avec envoi autographe de l'auteur en regard du faux-titre.

Etched portrait, 3 engraved maps, one folding (repaired and lined), and 7 hand-coloured aquatint plates, with the final errata leaf, occasional minor foxing or spotting. Modern half calf over contemporary marbled boards, a very good copy. First edition of a contemporary account of the Amherst embassy to China in 1816. Sir Henry Ellis (1788-1855) was a career diplomat who joined the East India Company in 1805 and went on Malcolm's Embassy to Persia in 1810 .In 1816 Ellis accompanied Earl Amherst on his mission to China. The mission, to negotiate a new trade agreement, was unsuccessful. Ellis was not impressed by the Chinese, whom he considered xenophobic, ultra-traditional, and 'uninteresting' (Ellis). On the return voyage, Ellis and his companions were wrecked in the Strait of Gaspar and only reached Batavia after a perilous journey of several hundred miles in an open boat. Later they called at St Helena, where Ellis met Napoleon. Napoleon later hotly disputed Ellis's account of the meeting.

        Dewitt Clinton

      December 1817. The letter written from Albany in 1817 while Governor of New York State to General James Tallmadge reads in full, <I>"Dear Sir, I have received your interesting letter. I shall be impatient until I see the report of the committee for internal improvements. The appropriation with the President on this point can do no injury and it may well comfort with a general support of his measures which I hope will be the case. An indefinite support of . . . to an administration is . . . anti- patriotic and generally unprincipled. If a member is to follow implacably the Presidential track, where is his independence as a legislator and a man! The Cabinet, as it is called, will be the main thing that will propel the whole machinery of Government. Rely upon it that a war with Spain will terminate in a war with G.B. I consider the independence of L. America as connected with the cardinal interests of mankind. To seal up the faculties of such a fine country against the . . . of improvement & the reciprocation of commercial benefits, is a high - handed offense against humanity. D - of . . . . migrated from the vicinity of Newburgh . . . in his origin, his principles have not improved by his . . . . his nomination was a country one and it was nearly . . . The next member will be of a different complexion. He has no other influence than that which be acquired by his office - a regular appointment. As to W - he is the very representation of deception and . . . T- are very malicious - they are plausible & apparently moderate but rely upon it they are false and hollow. Yours cordially,"</I> In 1817, Clinton was responsible for the creation of the Erie Canal. He persuaded the state lawmakers to provide 7 million dollars for the construction of a canal 363 miles long and 40 feet wide and four feet deep. James Monroe was President at this time and his cabinet included John C. Calhoun and John Quincy Adams. The United Kingdom also opposed a reconquest of Latin America and suggested that the U.S. join in proclaiming "hands off". Ex Presidents Jefferson and Madison counseled Monroe to accept the offer but Adams led him down a different path which led Clinton to become apprehensive. Twenty years after Monroe died in 1831, this became known as the Monroe Doctrine. General Tallmadge studied law, was admitted to the bar, and practiced several years in Poughkeepsie and New York. He also owned a farm in Dutchess county. For some time he was private secretary to Governor George Clinton, and during the war of 1812-'15 he commanded a company of home-guards in the defense of New York. He was elected a representative to congress as a Democrat, and served from December 1, 1817, to March 3, 1819, but declined a re-election. During that time, he defended General Andrew Jackson's course in the Seminole war, and introduced, as an amendment to the bill authorizing the people of Missouri to form a state organization, a proposition to exclude slavery from that state when admitted to the Union.

        Swear Not At All: containing an Exposure of the Needlessness and Mischievousness, as well as Antichristianity, of the ceremony of an Oath . London: R. Hunter, 1817.

      - First published edition, though a few copies had been printed for private circulation four years earlier. This is the earliest of Bentham's works on religion and is very rare in libraries. The title quotation comes from Christ's sermon on the mount, Matthew, v, 34. 'From 1755 to 1760 Bentham attended Westminster School, which he later called "a wretched place for instruction". At the age of twelve he was sent to Queen&#146;s College, Oxford. His three years there were no more stimulating than his time at Westminster and, as a consequence of being forced to subscribe to the Thirty-Nine Articles, he departed with an abiding distrust of oaths, an antipathy he later detailed in Swear Not at All (1817)' (Dictionary of Nineteenth-Century British Philosophers, Bristol, Thoemmes Press, 2002). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 8vo, [iv], 97, [22] pp., contemporary gilt-rolled tree calf, well rebacked some time ago, old owner's initials at top of title-page, uniform light browning, a very good copy.

        William Lambert - 1816/7 - 3rd Edition

      Hi, This lot is a paperback copy of the Third Edition of William Lamberts ""Instructions and Rules for playing the Nobel Game of Cricket as practised by the most eminent players"" Published in the Spring of 1817 (before May) so nearly 200 years old. This paperback does not have the original covers or the frontispiece but other than that it is complete and checked against Roger Hancocks guide. The front cover (title page) has tape to the left but the book is badly shaken and could do with new tape or to be rebound as it is very loose indeed, hence the tiny price.

        The Byrth, Lyf, and Actes of Kyng Arthur; of His Noble Knights of the Rounde Table, Theyr Merveyllous Enquests & Adventures .

      Longman, Hurst, London 1817 - Two large 8vo volumes. (4),lxiii,(3),xxxix,(1)383,(1);(4)495,(1)pp. Printed from Caxton's edition of 1485. With an Introduction and Notes by Robert Southey, the Poet Laureate of England. First edition with Southey's notes. Each volume with a large woodcut on the title page showing a knight and a dragon. Engraved gothic and figural initials. Contemporary binding of full near black morocco, spines in six compartments with raised bands, top edges gilt; gilt inner dentelles; marbled endpapers. Text blocks are remarkably free of the usual foxing that dogs this edition. Neat bookplates in each volume. A near fine set. This is the ninth printing of Malory, after Caxton (1485), De Worde (1498 & 1529), Copland (1557), East (ca. 1575), Stansby (1634) and two 12mo. editions in 1816. This was the first modern text of Malory which attempted to recapture the text as it was first published by Caxton. All contemporary advertisements indicate that this edition consisted only of 250 copies with 50 copies on large paper, though there is some suggestion from notes in the publisher's books that as many as 1000 copies may have been printed. This is the regular edition, still impressive at 10 inches, and a scarce and important printing. Gaines, A9. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Encyklopädie der philosophischen Wissenschaften im Grundrisse.

      Heidelberg: in August Oswald's Universitätsbuchhandlung,, 1817. Zum Gebrauch seiner Vorlesungen … Octavo (200 × 120 mm). Recent marbled boards, red paper spine label lettered gilt. Scattered light spotting throughout, as usual; a very good copy. First edition of Hegel's most complete exposition of his system, written for use at his lectures when he was professor of philosophy at Heidelberg (1816–18). "Hegel is, of course, famous for his dialectical method, but it is enormously difficult to explain this in a brief compass. It should first be noted that Hegel set out his systematic writings in dialectical triads comprising a thesis, antithesis, and synthesis. Thus, he divided his Encylopedia, in which he expounded his system as a whole, into three fundamental division sections – 'Logic' [a revision of his Science of Logic], 'Philosophy of Nature' and 'Philosophy of Mind'" (Encyclopedia of Philosophy III, 436). Each of these three sections is then further divided into three, resulting in an encyclopaedic structure for his entire system.

        Rosa Canina nilens

      Paris 1817 - This beautiful stipple engraving is from Pierre Joseph Redoute's Les Roses. The work was published in Paris by Firmin Didot between 1817 and 1824. The text was written by Claude Antoine Thory.Redoute's name is synonymous with beauty and in the world of botanical art he is known as the best. The work proved to be not only outstanding in terms of its beauty but also for its scientific merits. Many of the images were after Thory's personal collection as well as the rose garden of the Empress Josephine's garden at Malmaison. Redoute and Thory described almost all of the important roses that were known in their time. Lawalree describes the text as being 'of outstanding importance to both botanists and horticulturalists.Redoute's fame is due in large part to his diligent effort to perfect the use of stipple engraving. This labor intensive, and therefore expensive, technique creates subtle yet stunning variations of color making it superior to the engraving alone. Each plate was created using the 'a la poupee' process in which the color was applied before the printing. Hand-finished coloring was painstakingly applied after printing.Redoute was renowned for his artistic ability and tutored such people as Queen Marie-Antoinette, Empress Josephine, Marie-Louise, and Queen Marie-Amelie. Redoute influenced a breadth of artists that followed him including Turpin, Poiteau, Bessa, and Prevost. Redoute is widely considered the finest botanical illustrator of the early 19th century, if not throughout history.The process of stipple engraving and color printing give the Redoute Rose prints their luminous quality. Stippling is an etching process that employs dots instead of lines to form the image, which is then color printed by applying colored inks directly to the copper plate for each impression. The use of colored inks, greens and browns to print the stems and leaves, and reds and pinks to print the flowers, create a more luminous print by eliminating the necessity to paint watercolor over a back inked image. --- The work is in very good to excellent condition. There is an occasional faint fox mark or imperfection to be expected with age. Please review the image carefully for condition and contact us with any questions.
