        DE LA COMPOSITION DES PARCS ET JARDINS PITTORESQUES, Ouvrage Utile et Instructive Pour Les Proprietaires et Les Amateurs, et ...

      Paris: chez l'auteur et Le Normant, Pelicier: , 1817. Paris: chez l'auteur et Le Normant, Pelicier 1817. First edition of a popular early 19th century French work on bourgeois villa gardens. Lalos, who identifies himself as an architect on the title page, succeeded with 5 editions of this work describing, in varying degrees of detail, numerous parks or gardens in various departments of France where he wholly or partly contributed to the creation. His work preceded that of Thouin, but, as Michel Conan has pointed out, depended almost entirely on the theoretical work of René Louis Girardin. "This was clearly a book of aesthetic theory aimed at potential patrons. In this respect, the fact that it was republished five times may be taken as an indication of garden tastes among landowners from 1817 to 1832, many of whom belonged to the bourgeoisie." (Michel Conan in HUNT, J.D. AND CONAN, Michel, TRADITION AND INNOVATION IN FRENCH GARDEN ART, p. 168.) The engraved plates show an artificial waterfall, a plan of the cascades and the lake of Lamotte, a section of a cascade and a plan of the pond of the park at Liverdy. Ganay 184. 8vo (19 x 12.5 cm); viii + 216 pp. + 4 folding engraved plates including two plans. Contemporary quarter leather with leather corners, marbled paper over boards, spine edges scraped, but hinges still firm, gilt tooled partially raised bands, gilt lettered pink leather title piece on spine; marbled endpapers, previous owner's bookplate on front paste-down; small tear repaired near gutter of larger plan with no loss of image.

Auction records consistently call for 16 plates, whilst the only copy listed on COPAC with a collation, calls for 17 plates. The plates present in this copy are as follows and are finely hand-coloured except where noted: 1. View of Teignmouth (folding), 2. Croydon's Public Library, 3. Cliffden House, 4. Seymour Cottage, 5. Mr Kendall's Cottage on the Den (folding), 6. Berry Castle near Totnes, 7. Ingsdon House, 8. The Residence of W.Tayleur M.D., 9. Ugbrook.

The folding plates are trimmed quite close to their inscriptions and have been badly folded, resulting in a couple of extra vertical creases to each plate. The folding map has a clean 12cm horizontal tear (with no loss) along one central fold and a clean 2cm vertical tear (also with no loss) at it's upper edge. Bound in contemporary half calf with marble paper sides and a gold-lettered spine label, the spine and corners are fairly rubbed and the front cover is now detached (but present). Apart from the faults noted above, this is a complete and clean copy of a very scarce work, with the text block sound, the hand-colouring bright and fresh and the binding in restorable condition.

        Poems

      London: C. & J. Ollier,, 1817. Octavo (164 × 96 mm) in fours. Contemporary green calf, richly gilt and blind tooled spine, dark red morocco label, three-line gilt border on sides enclosing blind vine leaf roll-tool, blind five-line border and central straight-grain panel, gilt turns-ins, marbled edges and endpapers. Wood engraving of Edmund Spenser on title page. Bound without the half-title and blank; joints rubbed, pale stains on front cover, one or two leaves a little proud, four of the sonnets marked with a bold pencilled cross in the margin ("Written on the day Mr. Leigh Hunt left Prison", sonnet IX that opens "Keen, fitful gusts are whis'pring here and there", "On first looking into Chapman's Homer", and "On the Grasshopper and Cricket"). First edition of Keats's first book. Poems was published on 3 March 1817 by Charles and James Ollier, who were already publishing Shelley. The first of a mere three lifetime publications, it is a work of mainly youthful promise ?- Keats had appeared for the first time in print less than a year earlier, with a poem in the radical weekly The Examiner on 5 May 1816. The 1817 Poems attracted a few good reviews, but these were followed by the first of several harsh attacks by the influential Blackwood's Magazine, mainly by critics who resented Keats's avowed kinship with the despised Leigh Hunt. The best-known poem in the book is the sonnet "On first looking into Chapman's Homer", "by common consent one of its masterpieces in this form, having a close unsurpassed for the combined qualities of serenity and concentration" (Colvin), and described by ODNB as "an astonishing achievement, with a confident formal assurance and metaphoric complexity which make it one of the finest English sonnets. As Hunt generously acknowledged, it 'completely announced the new poet taking possession' (Hunt, Lord Byron, 249)" (ODNB). A very pretty copy of one of the most important books in English literature.

        The Naval Achievements of Great Britain

      London: printed for J. Jenkins... by L. Harrison,, [after 1817]. From the Year 1793 to 1817. Folio (346 × 276 mm). Late nineteenth-century navy blue half morocco, decorative gilt spine, blue cloth sides, all edges gilt. Engraved title page with hand-coloured vignette. 55 hand-coloured aquatint plates by Sutherland, Jeakes and Bailey after Whitcombe, 2 uncoloured etchings, plans of the Bombardment of Algiers and Battle of Trafalgar. First edition, with later issue plates. A handsome copy of this magnificent publication, illustrating the high-water mark of Britain's maritime hegemony, and the apogee of the coloured aquatint. As Roger Quarm, curator of pictures at the National Maritime Museum remarked: "As a record of naval events spanning a period of over twenty years [it] has no precedent. At no time prior to 1817 had a publisher attempted such a complete volume of documentary naval prints. It is the quality of accuracy which makes Jenkins so valuable" (quoted in the introduction to the 1998 facsimile edition). It was disappointingly slow to sell on its first issue in 1817, and Jenkins chose to issue copies as demand necessitated. The text in this copy is preponderantly watermarked "J. Whatman 1811" , the plates "J. Whatman 1825". The very earliest issues can be identified by the title-page vignette remaining uncoloured; otherwise, the key consideration for collectors is the quality of the colouring, which is extremely good in the present copy.

        The Byrth, Lyf, and Actes of Kyng Arthur;

      London: printed from Caxton's Edition, 1485, for Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, by Thomas Davidson,, 1817. of his noble knyghes of the rounde table, their merveyllous enquestes and adventures, thachyevyng of the Sanc Greal; and in the end le morte darthur, with the dolourous deth and departyng out of thys worlde of them al. With an introduction and notes by Robert Southey. Two volumes, quarto (247 × 184 mm). Finely bound in mid-19th-century (dated 1868) brown pebble-grained full morocco with bevelled boards, spines in compartments with raised bands and gilt titles direct, sides panelled with blind rules, blind fleur-de-lis tooling, gilt titles and fleuron cornerpieces, gilt-ruled turn-ins, all edges dyed red. Half titles in both volumes. Engraved vignette to title pages, occasional engraved initials. Very slight rubbing to extremities, some spotting within, a very handsome set in excellent condition. First edition thus (ninth overall) of Malory's Morte D'Arthur, here printed from a newly discovered copy of William Caxton's first edition of 1485, with introduction by poet laureate Robert Southey. This edition was the third modern printing of Malory, following the two competing editions of 1816 (one published by Walker & Edwards, the other by R. Wilks, both working from copies of the last early printing, by Stansby, 1634), but presents the very first modern appearance of Caxton's original text. All three evince a renewed fascination with England's medieval and fantastical heritage during the Romantic era, not unconnected with the changes and upheavals effected by the Industrial Revolution. Contemporary advertisements indicate that this edition consisted of 250 copies, with 50 on large paper, though more may have been printed - this is not the large paper issue, but still impressively proportioned, and presented here in a superb and characterful binding (dated 1868 in pencil on rear free endpaper of volume one), with hand-illuminated colour and gilt armorial crest (to volume one) and sword and shield device (to volume two) designating the ownership of Henry V. Tebbs, Chelsea solicitor and patron of the arts, who was friends with Dante Gabriel Rosetti.

      - Bleistift, auf festem bräunlichem Velin, links unten bezeichnet „Bertrand du Born" sowie Nummer „29". 35,8:26,9 cm. Provenienz: Aus dem Nachlaß der Familie Fellner, Frankfurt am Main. Bereits während seines Jurastudiums 1817-1824 in Heidelberg und Göttingen hat sich der 1825 in seiner Heimatstadt nur für kurze Zeit als Advokat tätige Fellner autodidaktisch zum Maler ausgebildet. Im Oktober 1825 ging er zum Kunststudium nach München, wo ihn vornehmlich Peter von Cornelius (1783-1867) anregte. Freundschaftliche Kontakte pflegte er mit Moritz von Schwind (1804-1871) und den Dichtern Ludwig Auerbach (1840-1882) und Justus Kerner (1786-1862). 1831 ließ er sich in Stuttgart nieder, wo er bis zu seinem Tode lebte. Fellner zeichnete sich besonders auf den Themengebieten der Geschichte, Sage und Dichtung aus, die er mit unerschöpflicher Phantasie zeichnerisch variantenreich verarbeitete, wobei er bewußt Stilmerkmale der altdeutschen Kunst verwendete. Ein Teil seines zeichnerischen Nachlasses befindet sich heute im Städelschen Kunstinstitut, Frankfurt am Main, auch das Goethe-Museum in Düsseldorf besitzt Arbeiten des Künstlers.

        ARCHIVE OF MANUSCRIPTS FROM AND RELATING TO THE ISLAND OF MAURITIUS].

      [Mauritius. 1767-1817]. - Approximately thirty-four items, totaling 75pp. plus several other later or tangential items. Mostly folio and quarto sheets, with a few smaller pieces. Light soiling and wear throughout, heavier to some documents. Overall good to very good. A superb archive of manuscripts spanning more than fifty years of French colonial history in the southern Indian Ocean, and reflecting the extreme danger of some of France's farthest-flung endeavors, especially during the French Revolution and Napoleonic Wars. Among the manuscripts offered are letters signed by Mauritius governor, Malartic, to the governor of Réunion, and an instruction given to the Chevalier de Sanglier sent to Mauritius by the Commander of the French troops in Madagascar, Maurice Auguste, Baron Benyovszky. The earliest item is a letter from the Cesar Gabriel de Choiseul, Duc de Praslin, regarding the precarious social climate in the colony. Dated 1767, he writes, "Messieurs. les revolutions arrives En Cette Colonie dans les affaires de la Compagnie." At that time, the Compagnie des Indes was handing over control of the island to the French government. There are eight autograph manuscripts signed by Anne Joseph Hippolyte de Maures de Malartic - Governor of the island, "Le Citoyen President," and "Sauveur de la Colonie" - regarding the governing of the islands during the French Revolution. All are dated at the Ile de France from 1793 to 1794. There are also two autograph letters on the printed letterhead of Maurice Auguste, Baron Benyovszky, regarding the supplies needed for his Madagascar colony, including tens of thousands of seeds for coffee and cotton. An officer of the Hapsburg army during the Seven Years' War, Benyovszky later served in the Confederation of Bar and assisted with a rebellion against the King of Poland, for which he was eventually imprisoned in Siberia. He managed to organize a rebellion among the Polish soldiers, commandeer a ship, and sail through the Aleutian islands and on to Taiwan and then Macau, where he befriended French diplomats. He used his new contacts to arrange an audience with Louis XV, to whom he proposed a French colony on Madagascar - King Louis was intrigued enough to agree and he appointed Benyovszky Governor of the new colony. Two further manuscripts relate to the precarious position in which the French colonists found themselves during the Mauritius campaign of 1809-1811. "Croyez, Messieurs, que Sa Majesté L'Empereur, Saura apprécier ce nouvel acte de Votre dévouement." Dated at the Ile de France, 31 8bre 1809. There is also a group of letters and other items from 1853 relating to Eugene Leclezio, the man who seems to have assembled all of the manuscripts. It includes several small manuscript maps of the island and the region in the Indian Ocean. There are also several later printed and manuscript items related to the same subjects. The Dutch were the first Europeans to become interested in the island, taking possession in 1598. After exploiting the island's dense forests for a century and introducing the cultivation of sugar cane and cotton, in 1710 the Dutch abandoned the colony. The French soon claimed it as "Ile de France," and the island remained under the control of the French East India Company until 1767. During the long war between France and England at the beginning of the 19th century, Mauritius proved to be an important strategic naval base, and as a result the British took charge of the island in 1810, and the Treaty of Paris confirmed official British possession in 1814. It remained an important sugar producing colony, and in the 20th century agricultural production was expanded to include tea, rice, and other produce. A unique and fascinating archive of manuscript material relating to French activities in the Indian Ocean.
