        Report of the Case of the Trustees of Dartmouth College Against

      1819. First Report of the Landmark Dartmouth College Case [Trial]. [Dartmouth College Case]. Farrar, Timothy [1788-1874], Reporter. Report of the Case of the Trustees of Dartmouth College Against William H. Woodward. Argued and Determined in the Superior Court of Judicature of the State of New-Hampshire, November 1817. And on Error in the Supreme Court of the United States, February 1819. Portsmouth: Published by John W. Forster, And West, Richardson, And Lord, Boston, [1819]. [iv], 406 pp. Octavo (9" x 5"). Original publisher boards, rebacked with replica of spine with printed paper title label, front hinge mended, front free endpaper re-hinged, untrimmed edges, several signatures unopened. A few tiny stains to boards, light fading to edges, corners bumped and worn. Some toning to text, occasional light foxing, minor tears to margins of a few leaves. * First published report. This is probably the most important American case concerning the contract right of corporations. The New Hampshire legislature passed a bill in 1816 that revoked Dartmouth College's original charter and converted the college from a private to a state institution. The college challenged the constitutionality of this act in the state Supreme Court without success, but the U.S. Supreme Court reversed the state's decision in a landmark opinion based on the contract clause of the Constitution. This decision represented "an assurance for all investors in American corporate enterprises that the terms upon which they had committed their capital could not be unilaterally altered by a state. At a time when corporations were first being widely used, it thus encouraged the expansion of American business enterprise. The decision vested the Corporation with indestructible contract rights, even against its creator" (Schwartz, 86, 111). "By construing the contract clause as a means of protecting corporate charters from state interventions, Marshall derived a significant limitation on state authority. As a result, various forms of private economic and social activity would enjoy security from state regulatory policy. Marshall thus encouraged, through constitutional sanction, the emergence of the relatively unregulated private, autonomous economic actor as the major participant in a liberal political economy that served the commonwealth by promoting enlightened

        LE PETIT MODISTE FRANÇAIS, Dédié Aux Dames.

      Paris: Le Fuel, 1819. Le Fuel,: Paris:, 1819. Paris: Le Fuel, 1819. Le Petit Modiste Français was an almanac intended by its publishers to become "le livre classique des boudoirs, et à se trouver sur toutes les toilettes." Poetry, allegory and advice on everything from fashionable dress and accessories to proper etiquette is offered here, along with 12 hand-coloured plates, one per month, showing a fashionably dressed woman either engaged in or, more often, in the foreground of some seasonal activity. (June shows a hot-air balloon aloft behind the lady). Our particular copy here has survived in a most detailed and decorative paper covered binding and slipcase, the first being quite neo-classical in ornament and the latter more romantic. Colas describes an issue of 1822 and notes that Grand Carteret cites examples from 1818, 1819 and 1820. There are 19 pages of addresses of merchants such as modistes, florists, hair dressers, cloth merchants, perfumers, shoemakers, etc, as well as announcements of where to find the latest creams, rouges, aromatic compounds, etc. Rare; OCLC lists only one undated copy from this series in any North American library and we have been unable to locate any copies of the present edition outside of France. Colas 2333; Grand Carteret 1843; 24mo (11.4 x 7.5 cm); (iv) + 211 + (1) pp. + 13 hand-colored plates including decorative title page. Bound in contemporary highly decorative color printed paper with six panels of arabesque designs on spine; upper and lower covers printed in shades of red, green, blue, black and yellow, with images of cherubs or putti in corners ; vignette of small children in a draped woodland setting within a lozenge shaped center panel; small seasonal "friezes" as accents on all sides; corners and sides ruled in gold with just slight age wear; a.e.g.; in highly decorative slipcase printed in similar colours with a scene of a visit by two young ladies to a rocky island hermitage printed on upper and lower covers, and with small rusticated and garden views (a small bridge with overhanging willow and an avenue of trees) in small compartments on the spine; slipcase shows some very moderate wear and very light soiling.

        Sésame et Les Lys,1906 Edition Originale de la traduction de Marcel Proust

      Mercure de France - Ces deux conférences de John Ruskin (1819-1900) Sésame et Les Lys, furent publiées en 1865 et Marcel Proust s’attela à leur traduction en 1904, peu après la parution de La Bible d’Amiens. Dans sa préface, « Sur la lecture », Proust évoque tout d’abord ses souvenirs d’enfance liés à ses lectures, avant de se faire plus critique et de se démarquer de Ruskin, lui portant régulièrement dans ses notes de bas de page, la contradiction et élaborant au long de sa réflexion sa conception de l’écriture. « Sésame et les lys est à bien des égards le sésame de La Recherche » Antoine Compagnon. Edition Originale de 1906 par Mercure de France, reliure demi chgin à coins avec un dos à cinq nerfs et la conservation du premier plat d’ origine, intérieur en bon état, format in 12, 224 pages.

        Defensa guadalupana ... contra la disertacion de D. Juan Bautista Muñoz.

      Méjico: Impr. de Alejandro Valdes Small 4to. [5] ff., 55, [1 (blank)] pp.. 1819 Juan Bautista Muñoz (1745–99, with death by apoplexy) was Charles III's official chronicler of New World. In a posthumously published article — "Memoria sobre las apariciones y el culto de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe en México . . . ", Memorias de la Real Academia de la Historia, V (1817), 204–24 — Muñoz => denied the apparition of the Virgin of Guadalupe, calling it merely the illusion of a "mere Indian." The cult of the Virgin of Guadalupe was so important to Mexicans of all classes and political persuasions that a spirited defense was assured; and Gómez Marín, a distinguished poet, naturalist, and religious writer, provides one here. Removed from a nonce volume. Title-leaf soiled and slightly foxed; upper inner corner of all leaves rodent gnawed with small loss of paper, not touching text. Two small pin-type wormholes penetrating from back toward front of volume, stopping on p. 13; some bug-spotting on last blank leaf. One leaf unaccountably browned. Not a fine copy, certainly; definitely, one priced for its faults.

        Bingham I, Hiram 1841 AQS

      No Binding. Good. Leader of the first group of Protestant missionaries to introduce Christianity to the Hawaiian Islands. He attended Middlebury College and the Andover Theological Seminary. On October 23, 1819 he was sent from Boston to lead a mission by the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions. Bingham and his wife Sybil arrived first on the Island of Hawaii in 1820, and then sailed on to Honolulu. In 1823, Queen Ka'ahumanu and 6 high chiefs requested baptism. Soon after, the government banned prostitution and drunkenness, which resulted in the shipping industry and the foreign community resenting Bingham's impact. Bingham was involved in the creation of the spelling system for the Hawaiian language and also translated some books of the Bible in Hawaiian. He designed the Kawaiaha'o Church in Honolulu on Oahu., constructed between 1836 and 1842 in the New England style of the Hawaiian missionaries, one of the oldest standing Christian places of worship in Hawaii.

        President James Monroe signs a scathing letter protecting his land investments

      Washington, DC, March 23, 1819. 8" x 9.75". "Autograph Letter Signed ""James Monroe"" as President, 2 pages, 8"" x 9.75"", front and verso. Washington, March 23, 1819. With inlaid blank integral leaf addressed on verso by Monroe to ""Thomas Swann Esqr. / Alexandria."" Minor flaws. Housed in a dark blue morocco folding protective case with a portrait. Fine condition.In full, ""I forgot to mention to you the case of Mr. Swart yesterday, who has admitted, in some degree, that he must pay the balance due for the land at the death of Judge Jones, but has never paid a cent of it. Mr Benton will take your instructions in it. I am satisfied that the object of Swart is to evade the payments in hope of taking advantage of the act of limitation, or some other circumstance. He had no title from the old gentleman, & the young one could make none. Had he better be sued in Chancery,or by ejectment. The legal title was not in me, except by the old gentlemans will, which may have some weight in the decision. If you think proper to consider the subject, & want further information, & will be so good as to inform it to me, the delay will not be material to Mr. Benton, who will always be ready to follow your instructions.""I am aware that I am indebted to you, on acct of the estate & my own account, by your kind attention to my affrs. In Alexa. You never mentioned whether you were so fortunate as to collect some bonds given you by Col. Mercer. If you will be so kind as send me an account I will with great pleasure make sure an arrangement as will be satisfactory to you. With sincere regard, your friend, James Monroe""Judge Joseph Jones (1727-1805), was the brother of Monroe's mother, Elizabeth Jones Monroe (1730-1774). Monroe's father was Spence Monroe (1727-1774). Monroe and his siblings (each younger than James) became wards of their Uncle Joseph. Monroe's youngest sibling, Joseph Jones Monroe, was only 10 when his parents died. It was Judge Jones who enrolled James Monroe in William and Mary in 1774, becoming a mentor and adviser to the future President. Joseph Jones was a Member of the Continental Congress (1777, 1780-1783) and later served as a Judge of the Virginia General Court.In 1794, Monroe purchased the land on which Oak Hill was located jointly with his uncle. Monroe inherited all interests in this land when his uncle died in 1805 with no heirs. Jones' will indicated that Monroe held the land in a moiety share. Jones' son, Joseph Jones, Jr., had lived on the property until his death, predeceasing his father.In 1810, to pay off his debts to the United States Bank, James Monroe attempted to sell the Oak Hill plantation. A notice of land sale in 1810 described the property as follows: ""Loudoun Land … For sale on Thursday, the 21st of December next on the premisies, the tract of Land on which the late Judge Jones resided in Loudoun County with about 25 slaves, and the stock of Horses, Cattle, and Hogs, on the estate…"" Robert Swart was the farm manager at Oak Hill plantation. He owed James Monroe money for land he had purchased from the estate of Judge Jones. William Benton managed the plantation. Colonel of a Virginia Regiment in the Revolutionary War, John Francis Mercer (1759-1821) had been friends with Monroe since they were classmates at the College of William and Mary. Mercer had served in the Continental Congress (1783-1784), the U.S. Congress (1792-1794), and as Governor of Maryland (1801-1803). In January 1825, President Monroe appointed his lawyer, ""Thomas Swann, of the District of Columbia, to be Attorney of the United States for the District of Columbia.""Ex Pratt, Sigety Sold in 1989 for the lofty price of $2,200."

        Report of the Case of the Trustees of Dartmouth College Against.

      1819 - First Report of the Landmark Dartmouth College Case [Trial]. [Dartmouth College Case]. Farrar, Timothy [1788-1874], Reporter. Report of the Case of the Trustees of Dartmouth College Against William H. Woodward. Argued and Determined in the Superior Court of Judicature of the State of New-Hampshire, November 1817. And on Error in the Supreme Court of the United States, February 1819. Portsmouth: Published by John W. Forster, And West, Richardson, And Lord, Boston, [1819]. [iv], 406 pp. Octavo (9" x 5"). Later nineteenth-century three-quarter calf over marbled boards. Moderate rubbing to extremities with wear to corners, hinges cracked. Moderate toning and light foxing to text. Early owner signature and annotation to head of title page, interior otherwise clean. Ex-library. Bookplate to front pastedown, two small inkstamps to title page, residue from card pocket to rear pastedown. A solid copy. * First published report. This is probably the most important American case concerning the contract right of corporations. The New Hampshire legislature passed a bill in 1816 that revoked Dartmouth College's original charter and converted the college from a private to a state institution. The college challenged the constitutionality of this act in the state Supreme Court without success, but the U.S. Supreme Court reversed the state's decision in a landmark opinion based on the contract clause of the Constitution. This decision represented "an assurance for all investors in American corporate enterprises that the terms upon which they had committed their capital could not be unilaterally altered by a state. At a time when corporations were first being widely used, it thus encouraged the expansion of American business enterprise. The decision vested the Corporation with indestructible contract rights. even against its creator" (Schwartz, 86, 111). "By construing the contract clause as a means of protecting corporate charters from state interventions, Marshall derived a significant limitation on state authority. As a result, various forms of private economic and social activity would enjoy security from state regulatory policy. Marshall thus encouraged, through constitutional sanction, the emergence of the relatively unregulated private, autonomous economic actor as the major participant in a liberal political economy that ser [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A VOYAGE OF DISCOVERY, MADE UNDER THE ORDERS OF THE ADMIRALTY, IN HIS MAJESTY'S SHIPS ISABELLA AND ALEXANDER, FOR THE PURPOSE OF EXPLORING BAFFIN'S BAY, AND INQUIRING INTO THE PROBABILITY OF A NORTH-WEST PASSAGE

      London: John Murray, 1819. Quarto. Contemporary marbled boards, neatly rebacked in calf, leather label. Endpapers renewed. Some offsetting from plates. Very good. One of the pioneering voyages of high Arctic discovery. Led by Sir John Ross, the officers included future Arctic greats William Parry, James Clark Ross, and Edward Sabine. Ross sailed up Davis Strait and westward into Lancaster Sound, seeking a northwest passage. A mirage deceived him into believing the end of the Sound was blocked by a high range of mountains, despite the disbelief of his colleagues. The expedition returned to England in 1818 with much fanfare and Ross was promoted, but the false conclusions were widely challenged when this account was published, and involved Ross in lifelong controversy. Aside from its incorrect geographical conclusions, however, the expedition bore important fruits in encouraging Arctic exploration, training future leaders, and compiling accurate geographical and ethnological data. This copy is particularly notable for the beautiful extensive contemporary coloring of the plates. One of the most remarkable plates in the book shows the encounter of Ross and his officers- decked out in full Royal Navy dress uniform- encountering the Eskimos in Lancaster Sound. The image was created by John Stackhouse, who was serving as the native interpreter for the expedition. ARCTIC BIBLIOGRAPHY 14873. HILL 1488. TPL 1152. ABBEY 634. SABIN 73376. LANDE 1425.

        Autograph Letter, signed ("Spontini"), to Monsieur de Lattré, reminding him of an invitation to dine with Mme. Spontini

      N.p. [Paris?], 1819. One page, in French. 8vo. One page, in French. 8vo. The Neapolitan-born Gaspare Luigi Pacifico Spontini (1774-1851) was a celebrated composer of operas in his day, who made his career in Paris under the patronage of the Empress Josephine. His most famous opera, LA VESTALE, premiered in Paris in 1807, and, according to Grove's Dictionary, underwent over 200 performances in Paris by the year 1824. As late as 1954, in fact, in celebration of the composer's 180th birthday, it enjoyed a revival at La Scala with Maria Callas in the leading role. *According to calendars, only these two years during Spontini's time in Paris had a September 22 which fell on Wednesday. Spontini left Paris in 1819 to accept a position with the Dresden opera.

First Edition, issue unclear. WorldCat (5 copies in North America, at the University of Victoria, the Eastman School of Music, Harvard, Indiana, and the Free Library of Philadelphia. According to Weinmann: Senefelder-Steiner-Haslinger 1, p. 167, the first issue (November 1819) has a printed price of "2 fl. 30 x" to the title. Göthel, p. 51, reverses the chronology: "The price was omitted [from the first issue] and re-engraved in a later issue as '2 fl. 30x'." Since the (erased) manuscript price to the present copy exceeds the printed price, Weinmann's hypothesis of a later deletion of the printed price seems more likely. Copies with a printed price other than "2 fl. 30 x." have not been located. Op. 30, in A major, is now counted as Spohr's 8th string quartet (see MGG2). The confusing numbering results from the fact that two of the three op. 29 quartets are actually later than op. 30. - [Op. 43]. Quatuor brillant [in E major] pour deux Violons, Alto et Violoncelle...

Spohr's 16th, 17th, and 18th quartets, in E-flat major, A minor, and G major respectively. Folio. Early brown marbled boards with cut paper labels to upper with titling "No. 15" and part name in manuscript; contents and name "A. Forsboom" to label of Violino primo part. Binding rubbed and slightly worn. Some minor dampstaining; occasional stains, soiling, and other minor defects. Quite good copies overall. . The Forsboom family was a dynasty of merchants in Frankfurt. "A. Forsboom" most probably refers to Anton Forsboom-Goldner (1794-1839), who was also a politician, noted for his interest in the arts. "The largest portion of Spohr's chamber music was for strings alone, ranging from 19 unsurpassed duos for two violins to four masterly, and largely unemulated, double string quartets. These, together with the 36 string quartets (and several other works for the same combination), seven string quintets and the String Sextet of 1848, display a number of common features. Spohr's own mastery of the violin is evident in all of them, and their technical difficulties, together with the particular style of performance necessary to secure their full effect, may partly explain their infrequent performance. The quartets, especially, fall into two distinct categories: solo quartets in the tradition of Rode (often entitled Quatuor brillant), which are essentially violin concertos with string trio accompaniment, and true quartets where the interest is more evenly divided between the instruments." Clive Brown in Grove Music Online.

        Representación del Señor Rafael D. Mérida, al Congreso de Venezuela. Instalado en la ciudad de Santo Tomas de Angostura, el año de 1819, la que fué mandada archivar por resolucion de dicho congreso.

      Burdeos [Philadelphia?]: En la Imprenta de Lawalle jóven 12mo (23.5 cm; 9.25"). 38 pp.. [1819] Rafael D. Mérida (1762–1828) began his career as a bureaucrat in Caracas, participated in the early patriot movement, served as minister of Justice under Bolívar in 1813–14, but turned against the Liberator in 1816. In his Representación, Mérida recapitulates Bolívar's errors, military and political, in a finely honed philippic. He is no less kind to Miranda, whom he nearly accuses of treason. Palau states that this piece was actually printed in the U.S., and the paper on which it is printed would certainly substantiate that claim, as does the fact that it is held by the Library Company of Philadelphia, famous for its collection of Spanish-language books printed in Philadelphia with false imprint information. An extremely rare piece of Bolívariana. => This copy belonged to one of Mérida's family. Original wrappers, one chip; stains on rear wrapper and soil to front one. Once upon a time, folded as to fit in a pocket. Very good condition.

        Tavola alimentaria Velejate detta Trajana restituita alla sua vera lezione da D. Pietro De Lama prefetto del ducale museo con alcune osservazioni del medesimo.

      Parma: dalla stamperia Carmignani, 1819. - In-4 (29,5 cm) VII (1) 107 (1) 109-128 c. (di tav.) 129-189 (3). Mezza marocchino verde, con fregi e caratteri dorati al dorso. La tabula alimentaria traianea è un'iscrizione bronzea rinvenuta nei pressi di Velleia, nel comune piacentino di Lugagnano Val d'Arda, e conservata nel Museo archeologico nazionale di Parma. È la più grande iscrizione d'epoca romana, misura 1,38 m di altezza per 2,86 di larghezza. Il suo rinvenimento avvenne nel 1747, durante i lavori di sistemazione di un campo, smembrata e venduta per la fusione dall'arciprete di Mucinasso (PC), i pezzi furono recuperati, ricomposti e, su incarico di Pietro De Lama, restaurati nel 1817 da Pietro Amoretti, la scoperta diede l'avvio agli scavi che nel 1760 portarono alla luce le rovine di Veleia. Una copia è presente nell'Antiquarium di Velleia. L'istituzione degli Alimenta, voluta da parte dell'imperatore Traiano e ricordata da un rilievo rinvenuto nel Foro di Roma ed esposto nella Curia romana, consisteva in un prestito ipotecario concesso ai proprietari terrieri obligatio praediorum i cui interessi erano devoluti al mantenimento di fanciulli indigenti, con l'intento duplice di incrementare le attività agrarie e sostenere le famiglie povere per contrastare lo spopolamento delle campagne. 19mo secolo

Fornforskaren Johan Gustaf Liljegren (1791-1837) blev sedermera riksantikvarie. Arkitekten, konsthistorikern och författaren Carl Georg Brunius (1792-1869) var enligt "Svenskt biografiskt lexikon" "otvivelaktigt den främste och trognaste förkämpen för medeltidsstilens återupptagande i Sverige, och han arbetade för detta ändamål såväl genom sin arkitektverksamhet som genom sina många skrifter."

        Traders Ready Reckoner

      1819 - CORNELL, Stephen. The Traders Ready Reckoner, Containing, A Marketing Table; An Interest Table; A Table for Casting Wages… Hudson (New York): Printed for the Author, By Ashbel Stoddard, 1819. 12mo (4 by 7 inches), period style three quarter speckled brown calf gilt, red morocco spine label, marbled boards. $2500.First edition of this scarce 1819 manual of marketing tables, interest tables, wage calculations and more by New York mathematician and merchant Stephen Cornell, with over 150 tables and large folding “Interest Table.”This scarce first edition of Cornell’s Traders Ready Reckoner, containing extensive marketing and wage tables, and a large folding “Interest Table,” was a much-needed resource for educators, governmental assessors, farmers and merchants in the early 1800s, when many Americans were relatively unschooled. Popular guides such as this were invaluable at a time when “numerical tables, such as for polynomial functions, were routinely calculated by humans. They were actually called ‘computers’ (meaning ‘one that computes’)” (Wonderful World of Early Computing). Self-published by Cornell, this popular Reckoner contains over 150 pages of “tables shewing at one view, the amount or value of any number or quantity of goods or merchandise… in so plain or easy a manner that a person, quite unacquainted with Arithmetic may hereby ascertain the value of any number of hundreds, pounds, ounces, ells, or yards, &c. at any price whatever.” Cornell’s calculations were ably authenticated prior to publication by Jacob Willets, author of works such as The Scholar’s Arithmetic (1817). OCLC lists 18 copies. See Shaw & Shoemaker 47731. Stephen Cornell is possibly a relative of Ezra Cornell, founder of Western Union and co-founder of Cornell University.Text and tables quite fresh. A near-fine copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      London: printed for J. Hassell, 27, Richard-Street, Islington. 1819. 8vo., with 24 fine fully hand-coloured aquatint plates, each with its original tissue guard, viii + 147 + (5)pp., in spite of the tissue guard, a little offsetting of frontispiece on title-page, contemporary calf panelled in gilt and blind, flat spine with gilt lettering piece, marbled edges, the binding generally somewhat worn, nonetheless still sound. A good copy with fine impressions of the coloured plates. First edition. Abbey, Scenery,> 30. Tooley 252. Goldsmiths 22530.2. Williams I, p.93. The plates are really rather fine, 18 of them showing views in which the canal features, often with locks or bridges. The Grand Junction Canal ran from Braunston in Northamptonshire to the River Thames at Brentford, with a number of branches. The main canal was constructed between 1793 and 1805 and was designed to improve the route from the Midlands to London, by-passing the upper reaches of the River Thames near Oxford, thus shortening the journey. By about 1810 the canal had reduced the distance to London from the Midlands by 60 miles and had made the journey reliable. As a result, it thrived: in 1810 it carried 343,560 tons of goods through London, with roughly equal amounts into and out of the capital.

      [Op. 30] Xtes Quartett für 2 Violinen, Viola und Violoncello... 30tes Werk. Preis ["f. 3" in pencil, erased]. [Parts]. Wien: S.A. Steiner und Comp. [PN S:u:C: 3017], [?after 1819].

First Edition, issue unclear. WorldCat (5 copies in North America, at the University of Victoria, the Eastman School of Music, Harvard, Indiana, and the Free Library of Philadelphia. According to Weinmann: Senefelder-Steiner-Haslinger 1, p. 167, the first issue (November 1819) has a printed price of "2 fl. 30 x" to the title. Göthel, p. 51, reverses the chronology: "The price was omitted [from the first issue] and re-engraved in a later issue as '2 fl. 30x'." Since the (erased) manuscript price to the present copy exceeds the printed price, Weinmann's hypothesis of a later deletion of the printed price seems more likely. Copies with a printed price other than "2 fl. 30 x." have not been located. Op. 30, in A major, is now counted as Spohr's 8th string quartet (see MGG2). The confusing numbering results from the fact that two of the three op. 29 quartets are actually later than op. 30. [Op. 43] Quatuor brillant [in E major] pour deux Violons, Alto et Violoncelle...

Spohr's 16th, 17th, and 18th quartets, in E-flat major, A minor, and G major respectively. Folio. Early brown marbled boards with cut paper labels to upper with titling "No. 15" and part name in manuscript; contents and name "A. Forsboom" to label of Violino Primo part. Binding rubbed and slightly worn. Some minor dampstaining; occasional stains, soiling, and other minor defects. Quite good copies overall. . The Forsboom family was a dynasty of merchants in Frankfurt. "A. Forsboom" most probably refers to Anton Forsboom-Goldner (1794-1839), who was also a politician, noted for his interest in the arts. "The largest portion of Spohr's chamber music was for strings alone, ranging from 19 unsurpassed duos for two violins to four masterly, and largely unemulated, double string quartets. These, together with the 36 string quartets (and several other works for the same combination), seven string quintets and the String Sextet of 1848, display a number of common features. Spohr's own mastery of the violin is evident in all of them, and their technical difficulties, together with the particular style of performance necessary to secure their full effect, may partly explain their infrequent performance. The quartets, especially, fall into two distinct categories: solo quartets in the tradition of Rode (often entitled Quatuor brillant), which are essentially violin concertos with string trio accompaniment, and true quartets where the interest is more evenly divided between the instruments." Clive Brown in Grove Music Online.
