        Picturesque Tour Along the Rhine

      1820 - (ACKERMANN, Rudolph) GERNING, Baron Johann Isaac von. A Picturesque Tour Along the Rhine, from Mentz to Cologne. London: R. Ackermann, 1820. Folio (11-1/2 by 13-1/2 inches), 20th-century full tan polished calf, raised bands, red morocco spine label. $11,000.First edition, first issue, of one of Ackermann's wonderful Picturesque Tours, beautifully illustrated with 24 hand-colored folio aquatints and large folding map. A lovely copy.In the history of book production "there is no more attractive figure than that of Rudolph Ackermann, through whose extraordinary enterprise and spirit of adventure, aquatint was successfully applied to the illustration of books" (Prideaux, 120-23). One of Ackermann's most lucrative projects was his remarkable Picturesque Tours, a series of seven books produced between 1820-28. This is his Tour Along the Rhine, with beautifully hand-colored aquatints by Daniel Havell and Thomas Sutherland after paintings by Christian Georg Schutz, depicting views of Mentz, the Castle of Furstenberg, the Church of Johannes, Pfalz Castle and the town of Kaub, the salmon fishery at Lurley, Coblentz, Bornhofen, Cologne and other sites along the river. The plates were pulled and hand-colored in the Ackermann studio, whose reputation for producing splendid illustrated publications and disseminating fine aquatint prints spanned over two centuries. The folding map shows the course of the Rhine from Mentz to Cologne. With accompanying text by Baron von Gerning describing the history and culture of the area (first published in German in 1819, without illustrations). First issue, without plate numbers in the top right corners. Tooley notes that plates 2 and 3 have variants dated either September or October; Abbey argues persuasively that to call either state an issue "must remain doubtful," particularly given that large-paper copies have also been seen with the two plates dated October. At any rate, the quality of plates in either state are the same high standard; Abbey notes that "there are definitely some later issues of the book, and these can be recognized by having plate numbers at the top right-hand corner. The impressions in these plates are poor and the coloring less good" (Abbey 217). This copy has plates 2 and 3 dated October, but most importantly none of the plates bear numbers in the upper right. Text watermarked 1817 and 1818; plates watermarked 1818 and 1819. Abbey, Travel 217. Prideaux, 337. Tooley 234. Title page neatly rehinged, plates fine and fresh, hand-coloring vivid; a few minor scuffs to binding. An excellent, attractive copy of this beautifully illustrated work. [Attributes: First Edition]

        A View of the Cove and Part of Sydney. New South Wales. Taken from Dawes Battery.

      R. Ackermann,, London: 1820 - This large print is the most important of the twelve views drawn to accompany his book "An Historical Account of New South Wales and Its Dependent Settlements; In Illustration of Twelve Views, Engraved by W. Preston, a Convict; from Drawings taken on the Spot, by Captain Wallis of the Forth-Sixth Regiment.", published in London by Ackerman in 1821. Although Wallis claimed the drawings as his own on the title page, the purchase of the original sketch album by the Mitchell Library in 2011 shows conclusively that the drawings were by the convict artist Joseph Lycett . The engraver Preston was also transported to Australia. The folklore surrounding this important work indicates that he engraved the views on the sheet-copper from the hulls of ships, as none other was available in New South Wales at the time. Wallis arrived with the 46th regiment, on the same ship which brought Joseph Lycett as a convict. Both Preston and Lycett were prisoners under Wallis in Newcastle where Wallis ran the penal settlement between 1816 and 1818. Lycett was to receive fame, and a pardon, for his famous work "Views of Australia". Engraved by W. Preston from an Original Drawing by Capt. Wallis 46th Regt. London Pubd. Septr. 1, 1820, at R. Ackermann's, 10 Strand. Copper engraving with later hand-color, image 56x 38 cms, with generous margins. "Wallis's book has a most important position in a collection of Australian plate books. It is the first book of general landscape views of early New South Wales, representing the first great celebration of the progress of the colony made under the civilising rule of Governor Macquarie and, indeed, of Wallis himself. It is also the first plate book, properly so called, to consist entirely of plates engraved in the colony by a colonial engraver". (Wantrup) Ferguson 842; Wantrup 217a.

Signature de M. Micheli au faux-titre. Orné de 6 planches dépliantes. Edition originale du premier livre de notre illustre général. "Dufour est au départ, de par sa formation, un homme du génie ce qui, à l'époque, signifie surtout un homme des fortifications et, accessoirement, des ponts. Ses travaux théoriques découleront, dans un premier temps du moins, de soucis immédiats, extrêmement pratiques. Dès son retour en Suisse, une préoccupation centrale l'obsède entièrement, alors que tout est encore à faire dans ce domaine : comment façonner une armée crédible, capable de rendre la neutralité crédible... Dufour répondra à la question en oeuvrant à la création (puis en y participant activement comme professeur) d'une école militaire destinée à former des cadres de l'armée. Sans de bons officiers d'état- major, pas de bonne armée. C'est là une idée force du futur général. Dans un premier temps, c'est donc une activité essentiellement pédagogique qu'il déploiera et qui trouvera sa retombée dans le Mémorial sur les travaux de guerre et le De la fortification permanente, ouvrages exclusivement centrés sur les besoins helvétiques et entièrement marqués par le souci de défendre la neutralité, à moindre frais possible.

        Bibliothecae Regiae Catalogus

      [Compiled by Frederick Augusta Barnard]. Mezzotint frontis. port. of George III (a little foxed), arms on each title, & two engraved views of the library serving as head- & tailpieces. Five vols. Large folio, cont. red straight-grained morocco (minor scuffing), panelled & tooled in gilt with centerpiece stamped monogram "GR" surmounted by a crown on covers, spines gilt, dentelles gilt, a.e.g. London: W. Bulmer & W. Nicol, 1820-29. The catalogue, "sumptuously printed" by Bulmer, of the magnificent library of King George III (1738-1820), donated to the nation by his son, George IV. This is a royal copy, having belonged to Ernest Augustus, Duke of Cumberland and the fifth son of George III, who became King of Hanover in 1837. It is superbly bound in red straight-grained morocco and printed on paper superior to other sets. "The kings of England had, from the end of the fifteenth century, always shown a certain taste for fine books, especially for the handsomer volumes of their own day...A new library was started in 1765 by King George III, when he purchased for 10,000 pounds the valuable collection of incunabula (with a few manuscripts) brought together by Joseph Smith (1682-1770), the British Consul at Venice... "George III continued adding to his library for nearly fifty years, buying with considerable discrimination at all the notable sales of the period; he secured the best books at the West, Ratcliffe and Askew auctions, built up a magnificent collection of English plays, and kept on right up to the Roxburghe sale (1812). His usual agents were Messrs Nicol, the booksellers, but he seems to have obtained from the Continent some extremely valuable incunabula by the assistance of one Horn of Ratisbon, a great despoiler of the German convents... "There is a sumptuously printed but hastily compiled catalogue of which copies are seldom met with."­-De Ricci, pp. 55-56. "As a boy George III had received an excellent education. He learned Latin well enough to be able to read the classics; French and German; history, geography, and the British political system; mathematics and elementary science; art, architecture, and music. After he left the schoolroom he continued his education under the Earl of Bute, an inspiring if somewhat pedantic tutor...Under his tuition the King developed wide cultural interests, a reverence for scholarship, and the instinct of a collector... "The King's aim acquire a library which contained every book which an eighteenth-century scholar could desire. It was a library to be used, not simply to be admired...It was, as far as it could be in the eighteenth century, a universal library...It is rich in library catalogues. In addition to the catalogues of British libraries, there are catalogues from France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, Sweden, Poland, and Russia. There are over five hundred sale catalogues, most British and most with the prices marked... "It was the King's wish that a catalogue should be published, but he postponed this as long as possible. When it became clear after 1812 that the King would never recover, Queen Charlotte and the Prince Regent urged the preparation of a catalogue. It was compiled by Barnard and published between 1820 and 1829 in five folio volumes...It was never offered for sale but copies were presented to heads of state and the great libraries in the United Kingdom and on the Continent. It is today an extremely rare book."­John Brooke, "The Library of King George III" in The Yale University Library Gazette, Vol. 52, No. 1 (July 1977), pp. 33-45. "Frederick Barnard had begun the catalogue of the books and manuscripts of the King's Library while it was at Buckingham House. The catalogue was Barnard and his staff for the Trustees of the British Museum and printed in five volumes between 1820 and 1829...Very few copies were printed, none for sale, and they are now very rare."-­Paintin, The King's Library, p. 22. This copy lacks the engraved frontispiece portrait of Bernard. A sixth volume, issued separately in 1829 and not present here, describes the maps, prints, and drawings. A magnificent set. From the library of Prince Ernest Augustus, Duke of Cumberland, and the subsequent Kings of Hanover. Miller, That Noble Cabinet, p. 125­"one of the finest libraries ever created by one man...By the time of the King's death the collection amounted to 65,250 volumes, besides 19,000 unbound tracts."

Housed in a custom folding chemise and half morocco slipcase. $4500.First expanded edition of this major compilation of America's constitutions, featuring printings of the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, the federal Constitution, and the constitutions of 23 states""including the 1780 Massachusetts Constitution, the "oldest functioning constitution in the world"&#157;""the first collection with the most recent constitutions of Alabama (1819) and Maine (1820), scarce in original paper-covered boards, housed in a custom chemise, slipcase."Independence destroyed the old legal foundation of the states, and made it necessary to provide a new one". As early as May 1775, colonies began to apply to Congress for advice to guide them"&#157; (Hinsdale, American Government, 64). On May 10, 1776 a resolution was proposed for the "Formation of Local Governments"&#157;""one whose preamble by John Adams was seen as directly "manufacturing independence"&#157; (Smith, 256). The importance of both the federal Constitution and state constitutions is strikingly evident in Constitutional Law, the first series devoted to fully documenting America's ongoing constitutional revolution. Herein are printings of the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, the federal Constitution, and constitutions of 23 states""documents that "rested on a new foundation, adjusted to a new political system"&#157; (Hinsdale, 66). Significantly these state constitutions, where the initial article after the preamble is often a declaration of rights, are "&#152;a mine of instruction for the natural history of democratic communities". The differences between state constitutions and the federal Constitution". raise intriguing questions that go to the heart of American constitutionalism"&#157; (Tarr, Understanding State Constitutions, 4, 11). This volume contains the pre-revolutionary Charter of Rhode Island, the 1776 constitutions of Maryland, New Jersey, North Carolina and Virginia, the Constitution of New York (1777) and the 1780 Constitution of Massachusetts, which was authored by John Adams and remains "one of the great enduring documents of the American Revolution". the oldest functioning written constitution in the world"&#157; (McCullough, 225).

        CARNET DE BAL (dance card holder)

      A nineteenth century French solid gold enamel binding containing five bone leaves. First appearing around 1820, the carnets de bal were used to record the order of an evening's dances, as well as the name of the partner for a particular dance. This opulent example is decorated with a leaf border; four diamonds at the borders; and large polychrome enamel plaques in the center of each cover, the plaque on the top cover showing a pedestal topped by urns and with flowers at its base, the back cover plaque bearing the initials AM in a leafy script. Also includes the original gold-sheathed pencil topped with a rose-cut diamond. The pencil slides into six gold rings attached to the binding's fore-edges, to serve as a fastener. This is the most beautiful carnet de bal we have encountered, an extraordinary bejewelled example. (2 15/16 by 1 7/8; 75x49mm.).

        The Complete System of English Country Dancing, containing all the figures ever used In English country dancing, with a variety of New Figures, and New Reels, composed expressly by the author, and elucidated by means of Diagrams. Also scientific instructions for the composing of country dances. An Etiquette of the Ball Room. A Description of the various times, measures and styles of country dance music; together with A Dissertation, comparing the ancient, and original, with the present state and style of English country dancing, professors of dancing, dancing masters, and dancing rooms

      London: Sherwood, Neeley and Jones, 1820. Probable First Edition, issue of ca. 1820, with a note to the foot of page 1 advertising "A collection of 500 Contredanses... about to be published" in Paris, referencing "Times Newspaper of 12th Jan. 1820." Very scarce. Not in Beaumont. Magriel p. 62 (with a date of 1815). Niles & Leslie Part II p. 562 (an edition published in London by J.L. Turner, undated, but possibly ca. 1829, not containing the plates or music). De Moroda 2664 (another edition, with the Turner undated imprint and incorrectly citing the Magriel copy as being the Turner edition). An important work by one of the most influential English dancing masters of the 19th century. "Several of Wilson's works are simply collections of dances described in much the same way as had been common in England since Playford's time. An Analysis of Country Dancing (1808) and The Complete System of English Country Dancing [ca. 1820], however, present a systematic analysis of country dances into their component figures. More than three hundred basic figures such as Turn Your Partner, Swing Corners, and Reel of Six are individually described with diagrams and verbal accounts, while an elaborate set of tables shows the way these figures can best be combined to produce a huge number of different dances... In The Complete System, Wilson instructed dancers to proceed through figures with step combinations such as 'three Chasses, one Jetté Assemblé.' This step combination was employed in the quadrille of this period... Also new was the idea of the 'minor set': the dividing of a longways set into smaller groups usually of four couples, with the first couple of each group beginning simultaneously rather than having everyone wait for the first couple to reach them." The International Encyclopedia of Dance, Vol. 2, p. 257.. Octavo. Contemporary dark blue textured cloth-backed dark brown paper boards with black leather label with titling gilt to spine. 1f. (title), [v]-xxvii (preface and introduction), [i] (blank), 339, [i] ("Private Tuition in Dancing") pp. + plates and engraved music as follows: - "The Old Country Dance Figures, arranged in classes, as they actively employ the persons in the dance; also shewing the places where the different figures begin and end," folding - 2ff. engraved music, being "Examples of Long and Short Measure.

        LOT OF FIVE ENGRAVINGS. Thebes. Hypogees. Plates 51 through 55.

      Panckouke. Paris. Ca. 1820. - LOT OF FIVE copper plate engravings (uncolored), images approx. 23 x 17 inches on sheets approximately 28 x 21 inches. Very good condition: light scattered foxing (mainly in outer margins). Publisher's blindstamp at top right. This lot of five very large, finely engraved images includes: plate 51 Momie de Femme. Momies de Chat et Autres Mammiferes., plate 52 Momies d'Ibis. Fragmens de Momies de Chacal qui Ont ete Dorees. Fragment de l'Enveloppe des Doigts d'Une Momie., plate 53 Momies d'Oiseaux., plate 54 Momies d'Oiseaux et Squelettes de Momies., and plate 55 Momies et Details de Crocodile, de Serpent et de Chien. All five plates are from Volume II of the Antiquities section of the monumental publication "Description de L'Egypte," which documented the research of the "savants" who accompanied Napoleon Bonaparte's ambitious expedition to Egypt (1798-1801). The full title, translated into English reads "Description of Egypt, or the collection of observations and research made in Egypt during the Expedition of the French Army" hinting at the varied purposes of this foray into the Middle East. The European demand for information about Egypt and its glorious monuments led to the publication of two editions of the work, with engravings pulled from the same printing plates; this is from the second edition, uncolored as issued. Shown are fragments of mummies, both human and animals, including birds, cats and crocodiles; the quality of the engraving powerfully evokes the splendor of these ancient objects.
