Pubblica così nel 1817 l'opera Dell'antichità di Roma divise in 40 vedute che sarà ripubblicata nel 1818-19 con il titolo Raccolta di Cinquanta Principali Vedute... In questa opera egli può ritrarre appunto i monumenti antichi ed i resti archeologici così come venivano alla luce, soprattutto nel Foro Romano...» (Catalogo della mostra su Luigi Rossini, Palazzo Braschi, Roma 1982, p. 17 e seg.). The second and best edition of Rossini?s first work, enlarged by 10 new views: the first edition, published the previous year, only had 40 plates. Engr. title and 50 engr. plates with very attractive views of Rome. Original wrappers; some marginal foxing, but a large and good copy with neat impressions of the plates.

        IL CONCILIATORE. Foglio scientifico-Letterario.

      Ferrario 1818-1819 In folio (mm. 380x240), mz. pelle coeva (dorso restaurato), fregi e tit. oro su due tasselli al dorso, pp. (6),478 (ma 476 perchè saltano le pp. 357-358), con una lunga introduzione per la presentazione de "Il Conciliatore". Di questo importante periodico bisettimanale offriamo una rarissima raccolta di "tutto il pubblicato" - dal 3 settembre 1818 (n. 1) al 17 ottobre 1819 (n. 118) - stampato su carta azzurrina (da qui la denominazione di ?Foglio azzurro?). Vittore Branca nel suo studio sul ?Foglio azzurro? ("Il Conciliatore", Le Monnier, 1954) scrive che col n. 116 terminava la parte del "Conciliatore" distribuita agli associati; anzi lo stesso n. 116 ebbe pochissima diffusione, causa il sequestro quasi immediato da parte della polizia austriaca. I numeri 117 e 118 non vennero neppure distribuiti: se ne stamparono solo poche copie, destinate ai redattori. Verso la fine del 1920 pervennero al Museo del Risorgimento di Milano delle pagine inedite del glorioso periodico: si trattava delle bozze di stampa predisposte per i nn. 119 e 120, che non videro mai la luce per il veto della polizia austriaca. Nel 1930 il Comune di Milano decise di pubblicare questi articoli, sulla stessa carta azzurra degli originali e in una ediz. numerata di soli 500 esemplari. Uniamo alla raccolta tale pubblicazione, di pp. (24), pure assai rara. Con qualche fiorit. ma complessivam. esempl. con barbe, ben conservato. "?Il Conciliatore? fu fondato a Milano nel settembre 1818 da un gruppo di gentiluomini liberali, capeggiati da Luigi Porro-Lambertenghi e Federico Confalonieri. Suoi principali collaboratori furono Silvio Pellico (che curò anche la pubblicazione dei singoli numeri), Giovanni Berchet, Pietro Borsieri, Giuseppe Pecchio, Gian Domenico Romagnosi, Ermes Visconti e Lodovico Di Breme. Fu l'organo di battaglia dei romantici e, anche se non esplicitamente, dei liberali; sicchè divenuto ben presto sospetto alla censura, fu soppresso al suo 118° numero, nell'ottobre 1819". Cosi' Diz. Treccani,III, p. 415.

      The Author Ballston Spa (NY): The Author. 1818. First. Second edition (and the first Ballston Spa edition, originally published the previous year in Philadelphia). Original quarter calf and papercovered boards. Very faint tidemark to the edges of the first few pages, some modest rubbing and light wear, a sound, very good or better copy. Bookplate of Ransom Cook, which covers Cook's easily readable signature. Cook was a longtime resident of Saratoga Spa (Ballston Spa is the county seat of Saratoga County) who, in addition to being an inventor, opened a carpentry and cabinetmaking shop there. He was responsible for the building of Dannemora (later Clinton) State Correctional Institution and was eventually named warden there. His advocacy for the humane treatment of inmates was unusual for its time. This famous title, a survey of slavery in the United States by a Philadelphia physician, is especially scarce in the fragile, original binding. .
