        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.= 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.

Heidelberg: Karl Groos, 1819.

      - First edition in German of Laplace's seminal work on probability. His Théorie analytique des probabilitiés was first published in 1812. The second edition of November 1814 carried, as an introduction, his Essai philosophique sur les probabilitiés, the first edition of which had appeared in February of that year. Here, keeping symbolic notation to a minimum, Laplace provided a popular exposition of his Théorie. 'The Essai was based on a lecture on probability given by Laplace at the Ecoles Normales in 1795. It underwent sweeping changes, almost doubling in size, in the three editions of the Théorie that were published during Laplace's lifetime' (Andrew I. Dale, Introduction to his translation of the fifth French edition, 1825, Springer, 1994). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 8vo, xiv, [ii], 207, [1] pp., contemporary boards with paper spine label, rubbed, particularly at edges, internally clean, without stamps or inscriptions, a very good copy.

        Koch, Joseph Anton. - "Narni. Vedute del ponte d'Auguste".

      - Zeichnung / Federzeichnung, auf transparentem dünnem Papier, um 1819. Von Joseph Anton Koch. 22,9 x 33,2 cm (Darstellung / Blatt). Nicht bei Lutterotti. Rechts unten in schwarzer Feder bezeichnet: "Narni / vedute del ponte d'Auguste." - Dionysischer Zug mit Satyrn und Mänaden sowie zentral ein Lyraspieler im Tal der Nera unterhalb der Stadt Narni. Die Ruinen des Ponte Augusto sind nicht direkt wiedergegeben. Die Bezeichnung meint wohl eher den ungefähren Standort der Landschaftsaufnahme, weniger das tatsächlich Dargestellte. - Vgl. die Zeichnung "Blick auf Narni mit Zug tanzender Bacchanten und Leierspieler" in Koch's Skizzenbuch in der Akademie der Bildenden Künste Wien (Lutterotti SB 911, 111). - Alt mit kleinen Klebepunkten im Rand auf Trägerpapier gesetzt. Dieses rückseitig mit Resten weiterer Klebemontierungen und Papiergelenken. Das feine Papier gelegentlich etwas gewellt. Insgesamt aber in schöner Erhaltung. Joseph Anton Koch (1768 Obergiblen / Tirol - 1839 Rom). Österreichischer Maler und Grafiker. Bedeutender Vertreter der Romantik. Ausbildung bei dem Bildhauer Ignaz Ingerl in Augsburg. 1785-91 Studium an der Hohen Carlsschule in Stuttgart mit einem Stipendium vom Augsburger Fürstbischof Clemens Wenzeslaus von Sachsen. 1791 Abbruch des Studiums und Flucht nach Straßburg wegen seiner Parteinahme für die Französische Revolution. 1792 in Basel und Biel. 1793/94 Wanderungen durch die Schweizer Alpentäler; Skizzenmaterial für danach entstandene Landschaftsbilder. 1794 Neapel-Reise mit einem Stipendium des Mäzens George Nott; zu Fuß über den Gotthard-Pass. 1795 Besuche in Salerno und Paestum und Niederlassung in Rom, wo er bei Asmus Jakob Carstens studierte. Freundschaft mit Bertel Thorvaldsen. Ab 1797 Zeichnungen und Radierungen für illustrierte Werke Homers und Shakespeares. 1812-15 Wien-Aufenthalt. 1815 Rückkehr nach Rom, wo er zu einer zentralen Figur für die zumeist jüngeren Nazarener wird. Seine Idee einer "heroischen Landschaft" orientierte sich zunehmend an Nicolas Poussin und Claude Lorrain. Die Landschaftsmotive stammten v.a. aus der näheren und weiteren Umgebung Roms. 1806 Heirat der Cassandra Ranaldi, mit der er drei Kinder hatte. 1824-29 Freskenzyklus zu Dantes Göttlicher Komödie im Casino Massimo.

        ESCRITOS VARIOS DE HIDRAULICA.

      c.1742-1819. - MANUSCRIT de 10 mémoires reliés en 1 volume in-folio. Demi-veau de l'époque, dos lisse orné. Précieux recueil de 10 mémoires manuscrits sur la question de l'irrigation et de l'approvisionnement en eau de Madrid et de plusieurs villes andalouses (Murcie, Lorca, Cadiz). Ces mémoires originaux écrits entre 1742 et 1819, et qui ont été reliés ensemble vers 1820, sont disposés dans l'ordre suivant: 1). Memoria sobre la nivelación que de Real Orden practicó D. Mariano Vallejo para traer mas aguas a Madrid de alguno de los ríos Jarama, Lozoya o Guadalix presentada a S.M. en 11 de Noviembre de 1819. 2). Informe sobre el canal del Reyno de Murcia dado de Real Orden por D. Pedro de la Puente en 27 de febrero de 1817. 3). Informe dado de Real Orden por D. Manuel Mateo sobre el canal del Reyno de Murcia de 11 de Julio de 1782. 4). Informe dado de Real Orden por D. Carlos Lamaur sobre el Canal del Reyno de Murcia en 24 de Enero de 1781. 5). Operaciones del Ingeniero Feringant sobre el Canal del Reyno de Murcia. S.l.n.d. (c.1742). 6). Proyecto del Canal del Reyno de Murcia por Don Sebastian Feringan. S.l.n.d. (c.1743). 7). Prospecto de los Reales Pantanos de Lorca, sacado del Informe General de ellos. S.l.n.d. (c.1792). 8). Informe de Betancourt de 30 de Mayo de 1806. Aprobado por el Exmo. Sr. Conde de Floridablanca en 4 de Julio de 1806. 9). Informe dado por Don Agustín Betancourt, de 16 de Julio de 1802, y el dictamen de de los fiscales de 24 del mismo. 10). Memoria escrita por el Ingeniero Director D. Fernando Casado de Torres sobre las obras de las murallas del sur de la Ciudad de Cádiz en 13 de Mayo de 1796. Ces documents constituent un ensemble très précieux pour l'histoire de l'ingénierie hydraulique en Espagne. On remarquera notamment la présence de documents essentiels pour l'histoire du barrage de Lorca et de sa rupture tragique qui causa la mort de plus de 600 personnes le 30 avril 1802. Particulièrement intéressants sont également les mémoires relatifs aux travaux de l'ingénieur Sebastián Feringán y Cortés (1700-1762), qui fut l'un des ingénieurs espagnols les plus remarquables de son époque. Bel exemplaire. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

En tidig svensk sf-roman som publicerades första gången 1817-19 som följetong i "Allmänna journalen". Detta är första bokupplagan. En tredje oillustrerad upplaga utkom 1832. Wallmark påstår själv, något ursäktande, att berättelsen är skriven "på hållen", det vill säga medan sättaren väntade på bladfyllning till nästa dag. Det är bara denna upplaga som är illustrerad och det är några av de äldsta litografiska bokillustrationerna i Sverige. Det tryckta omslaget med titeln: "Fuselbrenner den yngres resa till Stockholm, år 1913. Med karrikaturer." I den medbundna bokkatalogen annonseras bland annat årgångar av "Allmänna journalen" och "Journal för litteraturen och theatern". "Allmänna journalen" såldes även i lösnummer efter sitt innehåll, exempelvis "Något om en tillkommande realisation af swenska bankosedlarne (3 n:r af Allm. journ. 1820) 3 s b:o".

        Scenery of the Grampian Mountains

      London, Longman, Hurst 1819 - London, Longman, Hurst, . 1819, Folio (550 x 370mm), Contemporary Green half calf gilt, with hand-coloured folding map, and 41 fine hand coloured aquatint views,by Henry Morton after Robson.A very attractive copy. One of the most beautiful books to illustrate the Scottish scenery particularly the remote areas of the mountains and glens. These fine aquatints lend themselves to this type of view, creating a glowing,soft effect.George Fennel Robson was born at Durham in 1788. He was a watercolour painter and one of the twenty-three children. His father encouraged his inclination for art, which was early shown by his copying the cuts in Bewick's 'Quadrupeds' and he received his first instruction in drawing from a Mr. Harle of Durham. He began to exhibit at the Royal Academy in 1807, and published in 1808 a print of Durham, the profits of which enabled him to visit Scotland.In 1810 Robson began to exhibit landscapes in the Bond Street gallery of the Associated Painters, of which short-lived society he was a member. In 1813 he began to exhibit with theSociety of Painters in Oil and Watercolours, and in 1814 published 'Scenery of the Grampians', which contained forty outlines of mountain landscape, etched on soft ground by Henry Morton after his drawings. From 1813 to 1820 he contributed on the average, twenty drawings annually to the Oil and Watercolour Society's exhibition, mostly of the Perthshire highlands, but comprising scenes from Durham, the Isle of Wight, and Wales. In 1819 Robson was elected president of the society for the ensuing year. Between1821 and 1833 he exhibited 484 works, or more than thirty-seven on the average annually.Robson was an honorary member of the Sketching Society. He died at his home in London on 8 September 1833, and was buried in the churchyard of St. Mary-le-Bow in his native city of Durham.Abbey Scenery, 506 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Monograph on the Genus Camellia ... the Whole from Original Drawings by Clara Maria Pope.

      Broadsheets (702 x 580mm), pp. 8 (letterpress text printed in double columns); engraved title and engraved dedication to Georgiana, Duchess of Newcastle, by J. Girtin; 5 hand-coloured aquatint plates by Weddell after Clara Maria Pope, heightened with gum arabic; all text ll. and engravings on cloth guards; some light browning and occasional marking, skillful marginal repairs on text ll. and engravings, light marginal dampstaining on final plate; 20th-century full green morocco, the spine in six compartments with raised bands, lettered in gilt along the length of the spine in 4 compartments; light offsetting onto free endpapers, that from turn-ins darker, some slight fading on spine and outer parts of boards, some small scuffs and bumps, foot of spine bumped and with short splits, nonetheless a very good copy of a very rare work.First edition, coloured issue. One of the greatest British flower painters of her era, Clara Maria Pope (baptised 1767, died 1838) counted a number of artists amongst her immediate family: her father was the amateur artist Jared Leigh (1724-1769), her first husband the portrait, landscape, and genre painter Francis Wheatley RA (1747-1801), and her second husband the Irish miniaturist and actor Alexander Pope (1763-1835). When her first husband's health began to fail, Clara supported her family by teaching drawing - her pupils included Princess Sophia of Gloucester - and painting, exhibiting her work at the Royal Academy from 1796 onwards. Although her early exhibits were miniatures, rustic scenes and genre paintings, her reputation rests upon her flower painting and botanical studies, with which she almost solely occupied herself from 1812 until her death on Christmas Eve 1838, and 'the grand manner of her illustrations has ensured her a place in the history of botanical illustration' (ODNB). The text accompanying Pope's dramatic images was written by Samuel Curtis, the cousin of William Curtis (1746-1799), the celebrated English botanist and entomologist, and founder and editor of the Botanical Magazine. Samuel married his second cousin Sarah Caustin (1779-1827, the daughter of William), in October 1801, and thus became the proprietor of the Botanical Magazine, although he did not gain full control of publication until 1827. Samuel Curtis' only other published work, The Beauties of Flora (Gamston, Nottinghamshire: 1820), was also illustrated by Pope. Described by Great Flower Books as 'one of the earliest and probably the finest of all the great camellia books', Curtis and Pope's Monograph on the Genus Camellia was issued with uncoloured plates at £3. 3s and with coloured plates at £6. 16s. 6d., but publication appears to have ceased prematurely, possibly due to the expenses incurred by Curtis. (Although the title is dated 1819, the text and plates leaves all bear watermarks dated 1818-1820, suggesting that publication spanned at least two years.) The text consists of notes on the class and order of the Japan Rose (p. 1), descriptions of the specimens illustrated (pp. 2-7), 'propagation and culture' (pp. 6-7), and a list of 'all Camellias at present known' (p. 8), and is enlivened with Curtis's remarks on a species which fascinated him: 'Just as the dawn is the harbinger of morning, and the sun does not at once reach his meridian glory, so the Camellias advance upon us by degrees in beauty' (p. 3). The five coloured plates depict eleven varieties of Camellia Japonica (Japan Rose): 'Single White; Single Red Camellia; Sasanqua Camellia'; 'Double White Camellia; Double Striped Camellia'; 'Pompone or Kew Blush Camellia; Double Red Camellia'; 'Anemome flower'd or Waratah Camellia; Rose coloured or Middlemists Camellia'; and 'Buff or Humes Blush Camellia; Myrtle leaved Camellia'. The work is rare in commerce: Anglo-American auction records only list two copies at auction since 1975 (of which one lacked the title and text, and had had the plates laid down). This rarity is confirmed by Dunthorne's statement of the Monograph and The Beauties of Flora that, 'both of these grand and important works ... are so rare that they are known only to a fortunate few' (p. 40) and by the judgement of Great Flower Books that, 'Monograph on the Genus Camellia [is ...] as beautiful and rare as its companion' (p. 43).

        Autograph letter signed ("Talleyrand"). [Valençay?, prob. 1819].

      1819. 8vo (184 × 116 mm). 1 p. on a single bifolium. To "mon cher comte", informing him of a detour to Paris to see Madame de Laval. - Talleyrand, one of the most powerful French statesmen of all time, whose career straddled the Ancien régime, Revolution and Restoration was successively a bishop, a revolutionary who assisted in the drafting of the Declaration of the Rights of Man, an exile in America, and Foreign Minister to both Napoleon and his successor, the restored Bourbon king, Louis XVIII. He was also, of course, a legendary womaniser. "He believed that power and intelligence were the perfume of courtship and he wielded them with deadly charm" (Schama). In this short note he writes that he intends to extend a journey, probably from his home at Valençay to Bourbonnes-le-Bains (Haute-Marne, a spa town) and pass via Paris, because he will have the chance to see Madame Laval "si elle passe par Paris comme je le crois". He writes that it will only extend his journey by 25 leagues (at least 100 miles). Madame Laval was the longest-standing of all his many mistresses. A noted hostess and lover of gambling, Talleyrand had first seen her at the coronation of Louis XVI and she soon became his lover. Despite other passions the two remained remarkably loyal to each other until the end of Talleyrand's life. Contemporary Aimée de Coigny characterised Madame de Laval as "changeant d'amants presque autant que d'années" and as "maïtresse de M. de Talleyrand quand elle était jolie, actuellement son amie très exigeante". - Trace of seal at upper left-hand corner, old folds, but fine. Provenance: Karl Konstantin Kraukling (1792-1873, journalist, librarian and director of the Königliches Historisches Museum Dresden).

        Letter signed ("JWVGoethe"). Weimar, 1819.

      1819. 2 pages, 4to, integral address panel, paper seal, crayon numbering to second page ("91."). To Ernst Weller, concerning the Jena Observatory, instructing him to place into the charge of Professor Posselt, as discussed, the Jena observatory, as well the instruments, books, furniture and items contained in the garden house, and to consult Hofmechanikus Körner concerning the instruments, requesting him to give one of the two copies of the agreed inventory to Dr. Posselt, the other to be returned to himself, asking him to confirm Carl Lebrecht Hammer in his duties and to provide Dr. Posselt with a copy of the conditions of the former's employment, and concluding with the request that he prepare an exact report on these matters and that he submit it to [the undersigned], signed in Goethe's capacity as director of the "Großherzogl: S. Ober-Aufsicht über alle unmittelbare Anstalten für Wissenschaft und Kunst". - From 1816 Goethe was a minister of state and head of the supervisory office for culture and education in the Grand Duchy of Weimar. One of his various responsibilities was the observatory at Jena, founded in 1812 and built on the site of Schiller's so-called garden house (mentioned here). Johann Friedrich Posselt (1794-1823) was only the observatory's second director. Goethe's correspondent, the librarian and philologist C. E. F. Weller (1789-1854), was then at the start of his career, having been appointed the previous April an auxiliary official dealing with the supervision of the University of Jena. - Light spotting, small tears, and small damages to edges.

        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. 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.

        Autograph Musical Manuscript - A Study in Counterpoint, Napoli, 1819

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Early autograph musical manuscript in the hand of the Italian operatic composer. 32 pp. total, numbered in a later hand; pp. 1-16 are in Bellini's hand; pp. 17-32 are in an unknown hand. Half vellum binding with printed cover label titled "Studio del Contrappunto fatto da Vincenzo Bellini, Napoli 1819, Autografo." 11.5 x 9 inches (29.5 x 23.5 cm). Some light edge wear and foxing, especially to the later pages not in Bellini's hand, and one chip to the binding, but overall in fine condition.<br style="">The manuscript was previously in the collection of the American musicologist H. C. Robbins Landon (1926-2009) and was discussed in Bellini scholar Friedrich Lippmann's 1977 article "Belliniana: Nuovi Documenti."The music in Bellini's hand consists of a series of contrapuntal exercises in three parts, over a series of simple bass lines, all in C major. First, the young composer works out basic voice-leading models for a I-V-I cadence, and then writes increasingly complex variations on the same short bass; this procedure is repeated for a I-IV-V-I cadence, a I-iii6-IV-#IV6-V-I progression, and ascending and descending scales in the bass. The musical writing gains in complexity over the relatively few pages, by the final examples incorporating imitative and canonic writing. The final page in Bellini's hand bears two studies in four voices.In 1819, Bellini was only 18 years old and had just been granted a scholarship to study at the Real Collegio di Musica in Naples. Coming from a musical family in Sicily, he was well prepared for his studies. Both his grandfather, Vincenzo Tobia Bellini, and his father, Rosario Bellini, were composers and maestri di cappella. According to an (undoubtedly hyperbolic) anonymous manuscript now in the Museo Belliniano in Catania, the young Bellini had sung an aria by Fioravanti at the age of 18 months and taken over for his grandfather as conductor in church at age 3. He also began to compose at a young age, receiving lessons from his grandfather. <br style=""><br style="">At the conservatory in Naples, Bellini studied with Giovanni Furno, Giacomo Tritto, Girolamo Crescentini. and Niccolò Zingarelli. A cornerstone of his training was traditional counterpoint, as the exercises in this manuscript demonstrate. Besides this, he gained an understanding of the voice by composing many wordless solfeggi. Nearby at the Naples theatres, Rossini was the composer-in-residence from 1815 to 1822, and Bellini was influenced both by the older composer's florid style and by the more austere aesthetic of his teachers. According to Mary Ann Smart, "The conservatory's mostly septuagenerian faculty promulgated a conservative style of composition[...] espousing simple melodies and clear text-setting while violently opposing the florid vocal style and 'noisy' orchestration of Rossini [...] Bellini absorbed the Neapolitan doctrine thoroughly and produced works that pleased his teachers without ignoring the Rossini example. [...] A simultaneous attraction and resistance to Rossini's style is one of the most intriguing aspects of Bellini's student works; indeed, the confrontation with Rossini remained both a creative problem and a spur to innovation throughout his career."<br style="">See:Lippmann, Friedrich.
