        COLLECTION DE COSTUMES SUISSES DES XXII CANTONS, peints par J Reinhard de Lucerne

      Basel: Birmann & Huber, 1819 [1823]. 46 finely hand-colored engraved costume plates, each with a leaf of descriptive letterpress. 3 plates showing Whatman watermarks (plate 8: 1811; plate 36: 1823; and plate 41: 1819) 4to, beautifully bound in late 19th or early 20th century full crimson crushed morocco by J. Kulbsho, the boards feature fine gilt ruled and stippled frame with large floral corner-pieces, the spine with gilt floral decorations in gilt framed compartments between ruled raised bands, one compartment and the spine tail lettered in gilt, all edges gilt., turn-ins and board edges gilt decorated. A beautiful copy, the plates are fresh and clean with bright colours, the binding most impressive and in excellent condition, one plate with minor repair. VERY RARE. A beautiful early 19th century costume book, the hand-colouring of the plates is very masterfully achieved. The very handsome binding also makes an extremely lovely presentation. Three of the plates show Whatman Turkey Mill watermarks; Whatman paper is considered to be one of the finest English handmade papers of the 18th century. The elder James Whatman began to produce good quality white paper at his Turkey Mill in Kent around 1740. Until this time England was largely dependent on the importation of paper from neighbouring countries such as Holland, France and Germany. William Balston and the Hollingsworth Brothers became the main papermakers at Turkey Mill. These papermakers were given rights to the Whatman name after 1807. The fact that by this time their papers were being used in Switzerland gives credit to their accomplishments in bringing English papers up to, or even beyond, continental standards.

        11 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Zus. 13 S., 4. Der in Paris geborene Mathieu trat nach der Elementarausbildung eine Ausbildung zum Kaufmann in Lyon an. Darauf bildete er sich in Paris zum Staatsbeamten und Advokaten aus. Trotz einer Berufung durch die Familie Montmorency, trat er 1819 ins Seminar von St. Sulpice ein und wurde 3 Jahre später zum Priester geweiht. Als Sekretär des Bischofs von Evreux sollte er Seminare gründen, es fehlte jedoch am nötigen Geld, worauf Mathieu 1828 Priester und schon bald Großvikar in Paris wurde. Nach verschiedenen ungünstig ausgegangenen Wahlen wurde er 1832 zum Bischof von Langres erwählt und im folgenden Frühling geweiht. Vehement wehrte er sich gegen die von der Regierung geplante Aufhebung von vielen Bistümern. Durch seine Ernennung zum Erzbischof von Besançon (1834) trat er eine schwieriges Amt an. Denn durch die Haltung seines Vorgängers in der Julirevolution war der Klerus gespalten und Mathieu mußte dessen Einigkeit wieder herstellen. Sein Temperament, seine autoritäre Art und seine gallikanische Ausrichtung führten zu verschiedenen Spannung zwischen ihm und seinem Klerus, der in ländlichen Gebieten eher ultramontan gesinnt war. Die Freiheit des Unterrichts verlangte Mathieu für die bestehenden und neuerrichteten Ausbildungsstätten - darunter St. Francois in Besançon - seines Sprengels. Er unterstützte viele Kongregationen von Frauen, die in der Ausbildung oder in Pflegeberufen tätig waren. Um das verbreitete Simultaneum in Montbéliard zu verdrängen, ließ Mathieu 11 Kirchen für die Katholiken bauen. Mathieu war dem Papst sehr ergeben trat im Senat für die weltliche Macht des Papstes ein, widersetzte sich aber dennoch lange Zeit der Einführung der römischen Liturgie. Sein Rat war trotzdem oft erfragt worden, so vor allem von Nuntius Garibaldi in Bischofsernennungen. Nicht zuletzt deshalb erhielt er 1850 die Kardinalswürde. Als Teilnehmer am Vatikanischen Konzil gehörte er zu den Gegnern der Infallibilität, unterwarf sich aber uneingeschränkt. Nach der Konzilsperiode nahm sein Einfluß in politischen Angelegenheiten rasch ab. - Mathieus Bedeutung lag in seiner politischen und kirchenpolitischen Rolle innerhalb Frankreichs (Biographisch-bibliographisches Kirchenlexikon V, 1013f.). - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. -

        Histoire de France, pendant le dix-huitième siècle.

      - Paris, Treuttel et Würtz, 1819-1826. 14 parts in 14. 8vo (21.5 x 13.5 cm). Frontispiece (portrait of the author), 6,136 pp., seven additional frontispieces, 204 portraits, (four hand-coloured), 69 original letters of which many large, folded, six letters in facsimile, 12 signed printed documents, 13 original printed billets, 67 other engraved plates of which 13 tinted and two large, folded and hand-coloured. Uniform original red half morocco over red grained boards. Rich gilt spines.l A unique set of this rare work as it contains many additional original letters, autographs and portraits of kings, dukes, marquises, scientists, revolutionaries and other major figures of 18th century France, including autographed or signed letters by Louis XIV, Louis XV, and Napoléon Bonaparte, as well as portraits of people who had a great influence on French history and politics, such as Charlemagne, Voltaire, Corneille, Jean Baptiste Colbert (d. 1683), James Cook, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, etc., including hand-coloured plates of the Duc d'Enghien, Marie Therese, and Louis XVIII. Also included is a hand-coloured plate of the first flight with a helium balloon by Charles and Robert (1783). This is the major work of the French historian Jean Charles Dominique De Lacretelle (1766-1855), also known as "Lecretelle le jeune". The first volume is titled "quatrième edition" but all early editions are rare. In part VII, many illustrations depict events leading to and playing a role in the French Revolution. The portraits and some of the engravings of revolutionary events date from later, 19th century publications. Of many, the source is unknown. This work was first, partly, published as "Précis historique de la révolution" in six parts (Brunet, 23941). The author wrote a "Histoire de France pendant le xviiie siècle" separately, also in six parts (Brunet, 23882), which was followed by this apparently expanded and corrected combined edition in 14 parts, not mentioned by Brunet. Uncut. Two 40 pp. Treuttel & Würtz catalogues and some smaller catalogues bound in the rear of several volumes. The "Table des sommaires de ce volume" of volume VII is bound in the rear of volume VIII. Slight rubbing to the boards, some scattered foxing, some manuscript letters a bit soiled, but overall a clean and really attractive set. The "naked" version of this work is rare, this "dressed" copy is downright unique. Brunet III, p 731. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        PRATICA LEGALE secondo la Ragion Comune, gli Usi del Foro, e le Costituzioni di Sua Sacra Real Maestà. Edizione Seconda in miglior ordine distrbuita con addizioni.

      Pietro Giuseppe Pic 1819 - 1829, Torino - Opera completa, qui riunita in undici volumi in 4° grande (26 x 21 cm.), legatura coeva in mezza pelle, piatti marmoreggiati, titoli incisi al dorso ornato in oro, sguardie, frontespizio, prefazione alla prima edizione, introduzione, notizie storico - legali, XXVI, 572; 4 cc., 546; 467; 608, 138, 3 cc.; 607; 761; 2 cc., 523; 280, 103; 109, 3 cc.; 2 cc., 238, 162, 8 cc.; 2 cc., 111, 77 pp. Sicuramente una delle pubblicazioni più esaustive sulla giurisprudenza, nata come ausilio ai Principi del Foro, con le notizie e gli approfondimenti sui più importanti ed interessanti quesiti giuridici dirimiti da sentenze che facevano giurisprudenza, dalla fatica del Conte Pietro Gaetano Galli della Loggia, Presidente del Senato e reggente il Magistrato della Camera. In questa seconda edizione curata dall'Avv. Francesco Arrò e da lui di molto ampliata con l'aggiunta di Note ed Addizioni pur mantenendone la forma, nella distribuzione dei Titoli, posta dall'Autore della prima edizione: una prima parte relativa alla Tela Giudiziaria in un volume, una seconda parte in cui si tratta della Materia Contrattuale, Testamentaria, Feudale ed Ecclesiastica, raccolta in sette volumi ed una terza parte che comprende quanto concerne gli Atti di Volontaria Giurisdizione, in un volume, a cui si aggiungono un volume di supplemento (che arricchisce l'opera di un Commentario sulle disposizioni Legislative sancite nei Regi Editti del 16 luglio e del 22 settembre 1822 sul Sistema Giudiziario ed il Diritto Ipotecario) ed uno di indice. Un prezioso contributo aggiuntivo è dato a quest'opera già di per se indubbiamente notevole ed importante, dalle Note Manoscritte, oltre che su alcune carte bianche appositamente legate al volume di supplemento, aggiunte ed unite all'opera in due ulteriori volumi con il titolo di Note all'Editto del 16 luglio (e, rispettivamente) del 22 settembre 1822 di 144 e 234 pagine non numerate e bianche finali. Stilate a pennino dall'Avv. Stefano Ardazzo (elencato fra gli avvocati torinesi nel Calendario generale pe' Regi Stati . 1829). Opera di grande efficacia e di facile consultazione. Rarissima a trovarsi completa nei suoi undici volumi per l'ampiezza del tempo di pubblicazione, ed unica in quest'esemplare completo in tredici volumi, annessi i due manoscritti. Di grandissimo interesse per la storia della giurisprudenza dello Stato sabaudo, che divenne poi il nucleo della giurisprudenza dello Stato unitario. Il corpus è in ottime condizioni, lamentando solo qualche abrasione ai piatti e qualche rara menda d'uso. Importante ed assolutamente notevole.

        A Narrative of the Expedition to the Rivers Orinoco and Apuré in South America;

      London: John Murray,, 1819. Which sailed from England in November 1817, and joined the patriotic forces in Venezuela and Caraccas. Octavo. Contemporary vertical-ribbed brown cloth, titles to spine gilt, covers decoratively blocked in blind, top edge brown, yellow coated endpapers. A number of pressed leaves laid in. Boards faintly soiled, spine ends expertly restored, slight impression to prelims and endmatter from board blocking, a little fading to endpapers, occasional light marginal foxing and offsetting from flower pressings; a very good copy. First edition. Gustave Hippisley served as a colonel in the First Venezuelan Hussars as part of the British brigade sent to South America to assist in the war for independence in Venezuela. The account gives a description of the voyage to South America and includes a collection of Hippisley's correspondence, including with Simón Bolívar. With the ownership inscription dated 1842 of John Graham (1776–1844), an Irish historian to the front free endpaper. Graham has commented on the text in three places, including accusing Hippesley of altering the facts to fit his narrative, "this has not much verisimilitude, it seems far liker a 'ruse' than a natural occurrence", adding, "Hippisely here shows that he is a tyrant at heart". James Hamilton Browne notes, in an article detailing a trip with Lord Byron in 1823, that Hippisley's work was "invariably asked for by Byron at dinner ... its soporific qualities, he amusingly remarked, were truly astonishing, surpassing those of any ordinary narcotic; the perusal of a few pages sufficed to lull him asleep". With the often missing errata slip bound in.

The Marquis owned one of the most important collections of minerals at the time, counting for more than 15.000 specimen. Contemporaries oftenly referred to it as the ‘Museum de Drée', as it was frequently visited by natural historians. The collection could not be preserved in its entirety after de Drée's death, but was in parts donated to and bought by institutions in France. However, two extensive catalogs were published on de Drée's collections in 1811 and 1814. Another, competing mineral collection of that time, which section on diamonds becomes described here in text and image, was that of Jacques Friedrich van der Null (1750-1823). It contained a total of more than 5.000 specimen, which was bought by the k. & k. Mineralienkabinet in Vienna and today forms part of the collections of the Natural History museum there.

Graham has commented on the text in three places, including accusing Hippesley of altering the facts to fit his narrative, "this has not much verisimilitude, it seems far liker a 'ruse' than a natural occurrence", adding, "Hippisely here shows that he is a tyrant at heart". James Hamilton Browne notes, in an article detailing a trip with Lord Byron in 1823, that Hippisley's work was "invariably asked for by Byron at dinner . its soporific qualities, he amusingly remarked, were truly astonishing, surpassing those of any ordinary narcotic; the perusal of a few pages sufficed to lull him asleep".

        Tempio di Romolo in oggi S. Teodoro

      Roma 1819 - LE ANTICHITA ROMANE La serie delle vedute di Antichità Romane, composta di 101 tavole, viene realizzata con il ricavato della e vendita dei rami della Raccolta di cinquanta principali vedute di antichità tratte dai scavi fatti in Roma in questi ultimi tempi divise in 40 vedute edita nel 1817. Con quest’opera, per il numero delle tavole e per il formato prescelto, di grandi dimensioni, l’incisore vuole affermarsi come figura di primo piano nel mondo artistico romano. In quest’opera Rossini si cimenta in un diretto confronto con il suo predecessore G. B. Piranesi che costituisce un punto di riferimento per un incisore di vedute antiche, per quanto riguarda l’originalità e l’ampiezza della riproduzione. Il Rossini, oltre a sottolineare la sua influenza nella scelta del titolo e di alcune didascalie, usa frequentemente le medesime inquadrature e identici punti di vista del maestro veneziano. Altro elemento riconducibile a Piranesi è l’uso della luce e dei forti contrasti chiaroscurali. In queste tavole raggiunge una certa padronanza del mezzo tecnico che gli permette di cimentarsi in inquadrature più complesse nelle quali si nota un’organizzazione spaziale molto articolata. Nelle tavole è frequente il ricorso al taglio diagonale della veduta, consentendogli una più ampia possibilità di graduare i chiaroscuri in profondità. Tuttavia essendo l’opera composta da molte tavole presenta una certa discontinuità ed è possibile riscontrare in alcune di esse qualche incertezza nella impostazione prospettica ed alcune durezze nel segno. Rimanendo fedele alla tradizione corrente, la scelta dei soggetti operata dal Rossini non introduce nessuna novità; sono infatti rappresentati tutti i più importanti monumenti e luoghi archeologici di Roma. Elementi di novità sono sottolineati dalla registrazione puntuale dei lavori di indagine e di scavo intrapresi in quegli anni che dalla originalità delle inquadrature. Di particolare interesse da un punto di vista documentario sono le ultime quattro incisioni relative alla distruzione della Basilica di San Paolo fuori le mura, in seguito all’incendio del 15 luglio 1823. La volontà di voler animare le vedute, restituendo il monumento al suo contesto storico e la propria inadeguatezza nel campo della figura porta Rossini ad una collaborazione con Bartolomeo Pinelli, incisore romano, interprete e illustratore del costume e della vita popolare; a cui si devono le figure e i gruppi caratteristici che corredano le vedute. Pinelli in alcuni casi, riprende i motivi tratti dalle sue precedenti raccolte di Costumi pittoreschi romani. ROMAN ANTIQUITIES The series of views Antichità Romane, made of 101 plates, was realized with the proceeds of the sale of the plates used for Raccolta di cinquanta principali vedute di antichità tratte dai scavi fatti in Roma in questi ultimi tempi divided in 40 views, published in 1817. This is the work with which the artist wanted to become one of the most important artists in the Roman cultural life; we can state that if we consider the size of the work and the subject he choose. In this work Rossini tested himself with his predecessor, G. B. Piranesi, who was considered as a point of reference when it came to ancient views and originality. Rossini, was deeply influenced by Piranesi, as it can be seen in the title, the legends, the same points of views and framing. Another important element he took from Piranesi is the use of light and the contrast of chiaroscuro. In these plates Rossini reached the higher mastery of the technique, realizing also extremely particular framings and a new and complex organization of the space. In the plates quite common is the diagonal view of the subject, which gave him the possibility to elaborate more the chiaroscuro. However, since the work is made of many plates, it is quite discontinuous and some of the plates present some indecision in the perspective formulation and a little harshness in the mark. Always following the tradition of his time, Ross

        Eigenh. Schriftstück mit U. O. O. u. D.

      1819. 4 SS. 8vo. Faltbrief. An Auguste Anschütz (1819-1895): "Endlich meine liebe, beste Gustel komme ich dazu deinen lieben Brief zu beantworten, der mir große, große Freude gemacht hat. Du glaubst nicht welch' Vergnügen mir jede Zeile von dir macht, selbst wenn sie nicht an mich gerichtet ist, denn in jedem Wort spricht sich dein gutes, unverdorbenes, kindliches Gemüth aus, und ohne dir zu schmeicheln muß ich sagen, daß, wenn du dich gehen läßt, du höchst liebenswürdig in deinen Briefen bist. Ich bin der Mutter auch immer sehr dankbar wenn sie mir etwas von dir mittheilt, und dies geschah erst gestern an dem Geburtstag deines Vaters, den wir sehr vergnügt und angenehm verbrachten. Deiner wurde innigst gedacht, und alle möglichen Pläne gefaßt, um deinen Bescuh zu feyern und dir alle Gattungen Vergnügen zu bereiten [...]". - Die in Hamburg geborene Schauspielerin nahm Unterricht bei Ludwig Tieck und debütierte 1825 am Hoftheater in Dresden. Nach Gastspielen in Prag, Hamburg und 1828 am Wiener Burgtheater erlangte sie ihren ersten großen Erfolg 1829 als Gretchen in Goethes "Faust". "Nach Gastspielen in Berlin und Wien gehörte sie von 1830 bis 33 und seit 1835 als Nachfolgerin Sophie Schröders dem Ensemble des Burgtheaters an. Rettich hatte durch ihre Freundschaft mit der Erzherzogin Sophie Einfluß auf Theater und Hof in Wien und verhalf Friedrich Halm durch ihre Darstellung der Griseldis zu seinem Erfolg. In ihrem Salon verkehrten u. a. Eduard von Bauernfeld, Franz Grillparzer, Friedrich Hebbel, Heinrich Laube und Adalbert Stifter. Rettich gilt neben Sophie Schröder und Charlotte Wolter als dritte bedeutende Burgschauspielerin des 19.Jahrhunderts" (DBE).

        Autograph letter signed ('J. Cartwright'), to (? his publisher) Mr. Cleary of Findon in Sussex.

      Leamington, 11 July [Recipient's note 'Should be Augst'] 1819. 4to., 2pp., integral address leaf, postal markings, small tears where opened, recipient's endorsement, slight trace of former hinge. In very good state of preservation and readily legible. A fine letter by the 'Father of Reform', John Cartwright M.P. (1740-1824), political reformer and pamphleteer, reporting that he has been indicted 'respecting the business at Birmingham' which was fabricated against him in London and for which he, Wooler and others were arraigned before the grand jury in Warwick; nevertheless assuring him that he expects his bail will be pledged the following day, and that on Sunday he had time to make his escape to Leamington and finish a letter to the Prince Regent for delivery to Carlton House with a copy of his Bill bound in blue morocco ('... My letter to the Prince was sent to the Black Dwarf, >wherefore it will probably appear tomorrow. To have thought of writing that letter, which applied in no small degree to the attack on me, I esteem one of the fortunate events of my life; for an indictment of me while I was writing it, was the last thing I dreamed of ...'). Letters by John Cartwright are rare in the market (no letters by him are recorded as having been sold in American Book Prices Current>). The present letter also seems to have been unknown to his niece, F.D. Cartwright, as it is not mentioned in her Life and Correspondence> (1826) in which she discusses at length the circumstances surrounding the subject of Cartwright's letter. [op. cit. pp.163 et seq.] Cartwright was a powerful advocate of universal manhood suffrage, parliamentary and army reform and the abolition of slavery. 'Despite declining an invitation from John Knight, the founder of the first Hampden Club in Lancashire, to address a meeting at St. Peter's Fields, Manchester, Cartwright did accept the crowd's thanks, at a monster open-air meeting of the Birmingham Union in 1819, an action which led to his indictment, together with Thomas Wooler and three others, for sedition. Cartwright again attracted attention on 16 August 1819 when, after escaping the carnage of the yeomanry charge at 'Peterloo', he was called to answer his charges. Finally, in Warwick on 29 May 1821, he was convicted of sedition at the age of eighty-one, and when Mr Justice Bayley refused his request for imprisonment, Cartwright paid his fine of £100, happily noting each gold coin was a good sovereign ... A landed eighteenth-century gentleman, Cartwright transcended his background in the early decades of the nineteenth century and helped lay the foundation for the modern notion of political inclusion'. [Rory T. Cornish, in the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography>]. The book described in this letter as being sent to the Prince Regent was presumably his Bill of Rights and Liberties; or an Act for a Constitutional Reform of Parliament> (1817). The letter's recipient would appear to be T. Cleary, publisher of Cartwright's English Constitution Produced and Illustrated> (1823), a work admired by Thomas Jefferson.

Partly written in response to an anonymous pamphlet entitled Facts Illustrative Of The Treatment Of Napoleon Bonaparte which had attempted to vindicate the actions of Governor Lowe in relation to allegations against him made by O'Meara. O'Meara had refused to pass information to Lowe regarding Napoleon, whom he attended as physician at St. Helena. Lowe insisted that O'Meara be dismissed from his post, and this was effected when independent evidence of O'Meara's intrigues reached Lord Bathurst. When O'Meara sent a letter to the Admiralty instinuating that Napoleon's life was not safe in Lowe's hands, his name was stricken from the list of naval surgeons..

Nach 1889 verließ er seine Heimat und gelangte über Brüssel, Aachen und Köln nach Frankfurt am Main, wo er bis zu seinem Tode leben sollte. Zunächst ging er hier in die Lehre des bekannten Verlegers J.G. Prestel (1739-1808), für den er auch Vorlagen nach Werken alter Meister für dessen druckgraphische Reproduktionen lieferte. Andere Themen waren zeitgenössischen Inhalts, wie Genreszenen aus den Napoleon. Kriegen, oder Ansichten mittelalterlicher Burgruinen und Stadtbefestigungen. Nach 1800 konnte er sich beim heimischen Publikum mit seinen Landschaften der Umgebung einen Namen machen. Überdies nahm seine zunehmend vielfältige druckgraphische Produktion einen bedeutenden Platz in seinem Gesamtschaffen ein.
