The main text is followed by a glossary of botanical terms, a short overview of the Linnaean System and separate indexes in Latin, English, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Hindustani and Bengali.The book was written by Heber Drury (1819-1872), an English colonel with the Madras light infantry stationed in Travancore. Drury compiled his descriptions from various sources, including the works of Rheede, Ainslie, Roxburgh, Wallich, Wight and Royle, but also added facts from personal observations, especially regarding plants in Travancore. The rare Tranvancore orchid Paphiopedilum drury was named after him. With owner's stamps. Title-page slightly browned, with a couple minor spots, and a few tiny smudges in text, otherwise in very good condition. Spine a bit worn along the extremities, but the binding is otherwise attractive and firm.

        Eigenh. Schriftstück mit U.

      O. O. u. D. - 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).

Le livre de Pamphile de Lacroix est celui d’un témoin oculaire des évènements politiques qui embrasèrent Haïti au début du XIXe siècle et qui aboutit à l’indépendance du pays en 1804. Les positions de Lacroix, quant au gouvernement des colonies révèlent un esprit progressiste. Il suggère ainsi d’accorder aux habitants les pouvoirs de s’administrer, de se taxer et de se juger eux-mêmes, puisque leur fierté naturelle ne pouvait se résoudre à plier devant des autorités qui n’étaient pas créoles. L’ouvrage est précédé d’une explication des termes employés dans le livre. Edition originale. En bon état.

Quarter leather and patterned paper boards. Six leaves remargined at gutter (1, 2, 115, 116, 125, 126), catchword erased from 125; short tear at top margin of index leaf, occasional smudging. Still very good overall. Text in Arabic and Ottoman Turkish, 15 lines in fine naskhi hand in black and red, fully vocalized, within gilt borders, on glazed laid paper. 125 numbered leaves, plus 1 index leaf. 1 vols. 12mo. Commentary on the Vasiyetname or testament of Mehmet Birgivi, a guide to proper conduct for Muslims. Imam Birgivi (928-981 A.H., 1522-1573 C.E.), Turkish Sufi and scholar, was also author of the well-known Tariqat al-muhammadiyya (Path of Muhammad). "Since the seventeenth century, it has been a major source and inspiration for the Salafi reform movement" (Ibrahim Kalin, Biographical Encyclopedia of Islamic Philosophy). The text follows the chapter organization of the Tariqat (composed in Arabic), and the colophon notes that the root text was composed in 980 and the Commentary in 1114, by 'Ali al-Qunawi. The colophon is incomplete as a catchword has been erased at the foot of the leaf and the chapter index begins at leaf 39. A late eighteenth-century or early nineteenth century manuscript copy of this devotional work. Cf. Princeton, Islamic Manuscripts, New Series no. 1644; Brockelmann, C.

This is a descriptive account of the great British public and private libraries, with much information on libraries dispersed at auction and with an extensive index. Highlights of each collection are described. Archer Taylor considers this an excellent book about public, private, and sale catalogues. Clarke was matched only by Dibdin for providing first-hand information on all the great collectors of the late 18th and early 19th centuries in Britain. Bound-in at the end, as is sometimes the case, is William Wynken's A Dialogue in the Shades, between William Caxton, Fodius, a Bibliomanic, and William Wynken, Clerk [8 pp.; London, 1817] and A Ballad entitled Rare Doings at Roxburghe Hall [8 pp., London, n.d.]. A fine and handsome copy with the bookplates of Charles Henry Turner, John William Pease, and Lord Wardington. Lacks half-title. ❧ Taylor, Book Catalogues, pp. 39-41-"A good book about library catalogues…The unique feature that commends the Repertorium to me is the 'Index of Books' (pp. 603-673). Accounts of collectors and collections do not usually offer the reader the assistance of such an index.".

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 naturelle des mammifères, avec les figures originales, coloriées, dessinées d'après des animaux vivans. Marsupials.

      - Paris, A. Belin, 1819-1829. Large folio (approximately 53 x 35 cm). Five plates with explanatory text leaves. Not bound, as issued.l A magnificent publication with fine large plates of mammals from all over the world. The authors, Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire (1772-1844) and Fréderic Cuvier (1769-1832) were the leading authorities in mammalogy in the first half of the 19th century, and the "Histoire naturelle des mammifères" is widely regarded as their magnum opus. This section contains the Australian marsupials - a very little-known group then. It includes "Le wumbat" (wombat); "Kanguroo, ou macrope géant" (two plates, one with the red kangaroo, the other with the grey kangaroo); Kanguroo ou halmature thétis" (probably a "wallaroo"); and "Phalanger de Cook" (Australian ring-tailed possum). All as issued, without stamps, annotations or other markings. All text leaves and all plates uncut and untrimmed, resulting in very large margins. Due to these large margins some edges a bit frayed or with minor tears. Two plates irregularly age-toned, a few text pages spotted. In all, a set in very good condition. Brunet II, p. 1,536; Nissen ZBI, 1525; Wood, p. 354.

        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.

Sinkakas, 2143: “A very rare work”. – Fladung discusses the propper cut of gemstones, their properties and systematics, as drawn from the extensive mineral collection of the Marquis Etienne de Drée (1760-1848), but also changing and adding to de Drée's descriptions. 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.
