        Roman Costumes Drawn from Nature by Pinelli and C. Hullmandel on Stone by C. Hullmandel.

      London, C. Hullmandel for Rodwell & Martin s.d. (1820). In folio (cm. 43); legatura dell'epoca in mezza pelle  con punte e titolo in oro al dorso; 24 bellissime litografie a colori + una pagina in litografia per il titolo. Charles Hullmandel (1789-1850) è stato un litografo inglese. Personaggio fra i più importanti per l'evoluzione tecnica della litografia britannica del primo Ottocento. Hullmandel era figlio del compositore tedesco Nicolas-Joseph Hüllmandel  e della ricca ereditiera francese Camille Aurore Ducazan che, sposatisi a Parigi nel 1797, allo scoppio della  Rivoluzione francese fuggirono a Londra dove nacquero appunto Charles Joseph e la sorella Evalina (che seguì poi le orme paterne diventando insegnante di pianoforte e compositrice). Dopo aver trascorso parecchi anni nell'Europa continentale apprendendo i procedimenti d'incisione, lavorò presso il suo studio londinese al numero 51 di Great Marlborough Street dal 1819 fino alla morte producendo migliaia di stampe che portano il suo nome. Inventato solo una ventina d'anni prima in Baviera il processo litografico  stava conoscendo proprio in quel periodo una rapida diffusione insieme con una serie incessante di miglioramenti tecnologici cui Hullmandel diede un indubbio contributo. Il metodo di riproduzione da lui elaborato consentiva infatti un'ottima resa grafica anche per i colori tenui, permettendo così l'impressione delle varie sfumature espressive e gli esiti della pittura ad  acquarello.  Gli fu perciò possibile stampare le opere di quella pittura paesaggistica tipica dell'arte romantica resa particolarmente popolare in Inghilterra da William Turner. Eccezionali in campo artistico, le stampe di Hullmandel furono particolarmente ricercate anche per le opere di storia naturale, geografia e geologia. Axs

        THE LAWS OF LAS SIETE PARTIDAS, WHICH ARE STILL IN FORCE IN THE STATE OF LOUISIANA.

      Printed by James M'Karaher, New Orleans 1820 - Two volumes. xxv,[1 blank], 605; [3],612-1248,[4],73, [1 blank], [1 errata] pp. Scattered foxing and light wear, bound in modern cloth with gilt-lettered and lightly chipped morocco spine labels. Institutional rubberstamps, Good+. The Preface explains, "The laws of Spain are contained in various codes, the most complete of which is that known under the name of Las Siete Partidas," i.e., 'The Seven Parts,' which comprise "the fundamental principles of the laws of Spain." Cohen says, "This translation of the Spanish code, from which the Civil Code of Louisiana (1808) was derived, was made by order of the legislature. The translator's preface sketches the history of Louisiana law from the provincial through the territorial periods." "Great praise is due to the 13th century Spanish jurists who wrote the Partidas; for they produced not only a highly scientific code of law, the most notable of the age, but also the most complete treatise of jurisprudence yet published. The Partidas exercised enormous influence on Spanish law other than Castillian." [Marke]. Cohen 5294. Marke 245. Jumonville 336, 337. Sabin 42244 ["a curious and learned work"]. Not in Harv. Law Cat.

        Traité des Parafoudres et des Paragrêles en Cordes de Paille, précédé d'une Météorologie électrique, présentée sous un nouveau Jour, et terminé par l'Analyse de la Bouteille de Leyde

      One long folding lithographed plate & one folding printed table. 2 p.l., v, [3] (including the leaf of "explication de la planche"), 320 pp., one leaf of errata. 8vo, cont. red morocco, sides gilt, with arms in gilt of Francis I, the first Emperor of Austria, on each cover, flat spine gilt, a.e.g. Amiens: Caron-Vitet, 1820. First edition and a lovely copy from the library of Francis I (1768-1835), the final Holy Roman Emperor and the first Emperor of Austria, with his arms in gilt on the covers. Lapostolle was an apothecary at Amiens and studied under Cadet de Vaux. Taking Franklin's researches as his starting point, he gives first a general survey of the current state of electrical science, and then a description of his straw-rope lightning rods, which could be used both on buildings and adapted for use in fields to prevent the destruction of crops by hailstorms. This fascinating work contains one of the stranger illustrations in the history of early electrical books: it is a long lithographed plate depicting the construction of the rods and a view of a village and surrounding fields equipped with them. It very much resembles a modern wind farm. A very fine and handsome copy with half-title. With the copyright notice on verso of title signed by the author. Bookplates of Fernand J. Heitz and Jean-Claude de Rocha Carneiro. ❧ Wheeler Gift Cat. 771.

        Journals of Two Expeditions into the Interior of New South Wales, undertaken by order of the British Government in the years 1817-18... with Maps and Views of the INterior, or Newly Discovered Country

      London: John Murray, 1820. In fine condition, in a good Morrell binding.. Quarto, with three folding charts, two folding tables, a folding engraved plate and five aquatints, two with original hand-colouring, in later half red-brown morocco, gilt, all edges gilt, by Morrell. First edition of John Oxley's narrative of his two major expeditions, the first detailed description of the Australian interior and the earliest book devoted to Australian inland exploration. This is a very attractive copy of the most handsome of all Australian exploration journals, a finely produced quarto volume whose appearance recalls the earlier quartos of the First Fleet chroniclers and was clearly designed to rank on the shelf with the books by his illustrious predecessors like Phillip, Hunter, Tench, Collins, White, Grant and Flinders. It "is undoubtedly the chief book-making achievement of the Macquarie period..." (People, Print and Paper).Following the discovery of the Lachlan River by Evans in 1815, Macquarie appointed Oxley to lead an expedition to determine the course of the river and investigate its potential. Evans was appointed as second-in-command and Allan Cunningham was appointed as botanist. Setting out from Bathurst in April 1817 Oxley named the Macquarie River, explored the Lachlan and travelled about twelve hundred miles. But his findings on this first expedition were of some disappointment and Oxley recorded in his journal 'I was forced to come to the conclusion, that the interior of this vast country is a marsh and uninhabitable...'.A second expedition, to determine the course of the Macquarie River, was mounted in 1818 again with Evans as second-in-command to Oxley. After being bogged down in marshy country, Oxley split the expedition into two parties: he persevered into the Macquarie Marshes, whilst Evans travelled to the north-east and discovered the Castlereagh River. After regrouping Oxley and Evans headed eastwards, discovering the Liverpool Plains, the Peel River, and the New England tableland, before reaching the coast, discovering the Hastings River and Port Macquarie. He recorded his relief: '...on gaining the summit... we beheld the ocean at our feet. Every difficulty vanished, and, in imagination, we were already home...'.Although their prime objective had not been met, the expedition had seen some exceedingly important discoveries including lush grazing pastures and a fine harbour. As a result, in 1819 Oxley sailed to Port Macquarie on board the Lady Nelson, together with King and Roe on the Mermaid, where Roe in particular was instrumental in charting the harbour and examining the head of the River Hastings. The appendices in the present volume include comments relating to this latter voyage, notably a letter from Oxley to Governor Macquarie dated 12 June 1819.The finely-drawn maps and aquatints include views drawn by Major James Taylor from sketches by Evans, and the striking portrait "A Native Chief of Bathurst", prepared after a drawing by John Lewin, and one of very few known Aboriginal subjects by Australia's first professional artist.

        Last Dying Speeches of Arthur Thistlewood, James Ings, William..

      1820. London, 14-3/4" x 10" broadside. London, 14-3/4" x 10" broadside. "The Unhappy Men Were Perfectly Resigned to Their Fate" [Broadside]. [Executions]. [Cato Street Conspiracy]. Last Dying Speeches of Arthur Thistlewood, James Ings, William Davidson, J.T. Brunt, And Arthur Tidd, Who Were Hanged, Quartered, And Beheaded, This Morning at Newgate for High Treason. [London]: Thomas, Printer, 6 Denmark Court, Exeter Change, Strand, [1820]. 14-3/4" x 10" broadside, untrimmed edges. Woodcut execution scene depicting five bodies hanging from a gallows above headline. Text in two columns. Light soiling, some wear and a few tiny chips to edges, faint horizontal and vertical folds. $2,500. * A rare example of street literature, this unrecorded execution broadside commemorates the Cato Street Conspiracy. Led by Arthur Thistlewood, the Conspiracy was an attempt to murder all of the ministers and prime minister of King George IV in 1820. Motivated in part by the economic depression of the period, the conspirators wished to avenge earlier protests suppressed by the state, such as the Paterloo Massacre. The conspirator's goal was to overthrow the government and initiate a revolution similar to the French Revolution. Thomas's broadside is interesting. Published during a period of radical upheaval, it offers a mixed ideological message, most likely to maximize sales by appealing to a wide audience of varied sympathies (and to avoid charges of seditious libel). For example, at the beginning of the text Thomas describes the men with the language of martyrdom: "The unhappy men were perfectly resigned to their fate, and met their death with firmness." Dispelling this sense of heroism, he then says: "The following is a short sketch of those miserable and deluded men." There is also a bit of chicanery in this account. None of these men were allowed to offer final speeches and they were not drawn and quartered. No copies listed on COPAC or OCLC.

        De la folie Considérations sur cette maladie, son siège et ses symptômes ; la nature et le mode d'action de ses causes ; sa marche et ses terminaisons ; les différences qui la distinguent du délire aigu ; les moyens de traitement qui lui conviennent ; suivies de recherches cadavériques.

      Paris, chez Crevot, 1820, in 8°, de X-511pp., demi-veau blond époque, dos lisse orné, p. de t. rouge, qq. infimes rousseurs claires, bel exemplaire. Edition originale dédiée à Pinel et Esquirol, dont il fut l'élève à la Salpêtrière. C'est l'ouvrage majeur de Georget. "Georget apporta à la psychiatrie française du début du XIXè siècle une grande clarté et une méthodologie particulièrement précise. On lui doit une première délimitation exacte du champ de la psychopathologie par rapport à celui des troubles mentaux symptomatiques de lésions cérébrales" Dr. J. Postel ¶ Semelaigne I pp. 188/196 - Postel & Quetel p. 638 - "He submitted his doctor's thesis, Dissertation sur les causes de la folie, in 1820. How mature his thought was at the age of twenty-five one may judge from the fact that he published his masterwork De la folie in the same year. His orientation was organic but his clinical descriptions were masterpieces. To Georget mental illness was apparently one idiopathic brain disease with a great variety of manifestations which were, however, not separate diseases. In this formulation he was one of the earliest psychiatrist to believe in the unity of all mental diseases as representing different stages of one process". (Zilboorg pp. 392/394)

        Plan der Königl. Westphälischen Haupt und Residenzstadt Cassel

      Artist: Anonymus ca ; issued in: Prag; date: ca1820 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: colored; - condition: Folded; - size (in cm): 28,5 x 36,5; - description: Detailed city map of Kassel with description of all important buildigns and streeets. Kassel is a city located on the Fulda River in northern Hesse, Germany. The city's name is derived from the ancient Castellum Cattorum, a castle of the Chatti, a German tribe that had lived in the area since Roman times. In the early 19th century, the Brothers Grimm lived in Kassel. They collected and wrote most of their fairy tales there. Having sided with Austria in the Austro-Prussian War to gain supremacy in Germany, the principality was annexed by Prussia in 1866. The Prussian administration united Nassau, Frankfurt and Hesse-Kassel into the new Prussian province of Hesse-Nassau. Kassel ceased to be a princely residence, but soon developed into a major industrial centre, as well as a major railway junction. Henschel & Son, the largest railway locomotive manufacturer in Germany at the end of the nineteenth century, was based in Kassel.

        Last Dying Speeches of Arthur Thistlewood, James Ings, William.

      1820 - London, 14-3/4" x 10" broadside. "The Unhappy Men Were Perfectly Resigned to Their Fate" [Broadside]. [Executions]. [Cato Street Conspiracy]. Last Dying Speeches of Arthur Thistlewood, James Ings, William Davidson, J.T. Brunt, And Arthur Tidd, Who Were Hanged, Quartered, And Beheaded, This Morning at Newgate for High Treason. [London]: Thomas, Printer, 6 Denmark Court, Exeter Change, Strand, [1820]. 14-3/4" x 10" broadside, untrimmed edges. Woodcut execution scene depicting five bodies hanging from a gallows above headline. Text in two columns. Light soiling, some wear and a few tiny chips to edges, faint horizontal and vertical folds. $2,500. * A rare example of street literature, this unrecorded execution broadside commemorates the Cato Street Conspiracy. Led by Arthur Thistlewood, the Conspiracy was an attempt to murder all of the ministers and prime minister of King George IV in 1820. Motivated in part by the economic depression of the period, the conspirators wished to avenge earlier protests suppressed by the state, such as the Paterloo Massacre. The conspirator's goal was to overthrow the government and initiate a revolution similar to the French Revolution. Thomas's broadside is interesting. Published during a period of radical upheaval, it offers a mixed ideological message, most likely to maximize sales by appealing to a wide audience of varied sympathies (and to avoid charges of seditious libel). For example, at the beginning of the text Thomas describes the men with the language of martyrdom: "The unhappy men were perfectly resigned to their fate, and met their death with firmness." Dispelling this sense of heroism, he then says: "The following is a short sketch of those miserable and deluded men." There is also a bit of chicanery in this account. None of these men offered final speeches and they were not drawn and quartered. No copies listed on COPAC or OCLC.

        ITALIAN GRAND TOUR PLASTER INTAGLIOS

      IMPRONTE GEMMARIE ,DALLA COLLEZ. CADES NO.10 Box in book form containing plaster copies of Intaglios arranged front and back with manuscript indices.138 small plaster lozenges picturing boats, quadruped animals, birds, aquatic animals, insects, and chimera. These plaster casts of Greek and Roman and later Renaissance gems were collected by travellers undertaking a "grand tour"of Europe in the late C18th and early to mid c19th. The original engraved gems, frequently referred to as intaglios (or intagli) are small and usually semi-precious gemstones that have been carved, (in the Western tradition normally with images or inscriptions only on one face) "in intaglio" with the design cut into the flat background of the stone. Round or oval Greek gems (along with similar objects in bone and ivory) are found from the 8th and 7th centuries BC, usually with animals in energetic geometric poses, often with a border marked by dots or a rim. The Gems were mostly cut by using abrasive powder from harder stones in conjunction with a hand-drill. By the mid-eighteenth century prices for the original gems had reached such a level that collections could only be formed by the very wealthy; less wealthy travellers and collectors made popular the collecting of plaster casts such as these. A generic term for the field of carved stones is "glyptic art".Although such stones have been collected since antiquity, their usual functions were as seals, often mounted in a ring. The designs register most clearly when viewed in wax impression or as here, in plaster.

        Talma et les jours perdus.

      - 1 lettre autographe (brouillon) 1 p. 1/2 In-4 vers 1820-1825 très bon Brouillon d'une belle lettre de Talma sur le théâtre et les souffrances que lui inflige la goutte. «Les biens de ce monde nous viennent rarement sans quelque mélange de mal. A l'instant où je recevais une lettre toute aimable de vous, mais sans doute trop flatteuse, je me sentais saisi d'un violent accès de goutte. Les douleurs intolérables qu'elle m'a fait éprouver ont seules retardé ma réponse et je souffre encore au point de ne pouvoir à peine vous écrire». Il la remercie infiniment de son invitation à venir à Angervilliers où il aurait eu le plaisir de faire sa cour à madame de La Brèche, mais son état de santé l'en empêche. «J'ai fort entendu parler de la troupe du marais qu'on m'a dit excellente. Que sais-je si une fois là, je n'aurois pas fait infidélité à la troupe de la rue de Richelieu, et sollicité par la directrice un ordre de début? Mais je désespère de pouvoir jouir cette saison de tout le plaisir que vous m'offrez. Je crains de rester encore longtemps boiteux, et en vérité j'aurois honte de me montrer avec cette ridicule infirmité. Nous autres princes, qui ne sont considérés qu'autant que nous marchons droit, il faut bien nous garder de clocher devant le monde. Il n'y a rien d'idéal dans la goutte, et aller ainsi clopin-clopant défigure furieusement un héros qu'on est habitué à ne voir que dans les régions poétiques. Quand je serai remis sur mes deux pieds, ce sera encore pis. Je suis harcelé par des auteurs en répétition ou près d'y être et qui gémissent au moins autant du retard que j'apporte à leurs pièces que des douleurs que j'éprouve. Il faudra réparer les jours perdus ; dès que je serai en état de reprendre mon service, on sera après moi, il faudra répéter tous les jours et jouer trois fois par semaine [.]. Heureux vos voisins qui ne sont sur le théâtre que quand la fantaisie leur en prend. Pourquoi mon étoile m'a-t-elle voulu rue de Richelieu, plutôt qu'au marais ; oui pourquoi Brunoy [lieu de sa résidence] n'est-il pas à côté d'Angervilliers! [.]». [La destinataire de la lettre est peut-être madame Récamier qui vivait à Angervilliers ; elle avait rencontré l'acteur le plus célèbre de son temps chez Mme de Stael et l'avait revu à plusieurs reprises]. Le plus prestigieux acteur de son époque, admiré par Napoléon. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Freedom & Purity of Election!!! Showing the Necessity of Reform in the Close Boroughs

      London: Hannah Humphrey, 1820. First Edition. Softcover. Very Good. Hand-colored by Cruikshank. Engraving on wove paper. 9-3/4 x 13-3/4 inches (w 33.8 x h 22.2 cm); 1 margin tear repaired. Trimmed. <br> In this print Cruikshank show the elections in Cornwall (Tregony and St. Austel), a close burrow. The villagers "have displeased their feudal proprietor, and are being summarily evicted from their houses, with their household belongings, by a truculent steward, with a list of the "proscribed" held in his hand. Old and young, women and children, are alike doomed, because they or their protectors have dared to act with independence, and have not voted according to the fiat of the lord of the manor. Daniel O'Connell appears as the unsuccessful candidate; he is viewing this mischief with compassion, and is encouraging those evicted 'not to be cast down, as there are other houses besides his lordship's,' and that he ... 'will not desert them, although they have lost the election.'" - Grego, Joseph. "A History of Parliamentary Elections and Electioneering in the Old Days," p. 340-341. <br> Refs: Cohn 1130. Catalogue of Political and Personal Satires preserved in the Department of Prints and Drawings in the British Museum, Mary Dorothy George, v. 10, no. 13710. <br> According to the back matter, this particular print was exhibited in Exeter Hall in 1863 and was hand colored by Cruikshank.
