        THE CLUB-ROOM

      Boston: T. Swann, 1820. First Edition. Unbound. 8vo. In 2 volumes, No. 1 (Feb. 1820) pp. 1-40 and No. II (March 1820) pp. 41-84. Unbound, marginal stains to a few leaves of No. 1; light browning and wear to corners of No. 1. Complete in themselves, but volumes 1 and II only of IV volumes published of this rarity. Together with an octavo mailing envelope with the return address of the Seven Gables Bookshop, in New York City; older price of $7.50 is written in pencil on envelope. Housed in a handsome half leather slipcase , with chemise. NOTE: The Club-Room was founded by nine men, mostly Harvard graduates, in Boston in June 1818. There were eventually 24 members, who met to dine, to talk and to read papers they had written. Prescott attended club meetings for more than 40 years. William Hickling Prescott (1796-1859) was clearly, one of the greatest American historians. The subject that fascinated him for more than 30 years was the rise and decline of the Spanish Empire. Born into a prosperous family, he graduated from Harvard in 1814, but poor health and failing eyesight discouraged him from a career in business, or law. His good friend, Washington Irving, directed him to his life's work: writing the history of 16th century Spain and its colonies. He is best known for "History of the Conquest of Mexico" (1843) and History of the Conquest of Peru" (1847). [Bal., volume 7, p. 180] See our listing under Prescott's works.

        Veduta del prospetto dell'Arco di Giano

      1820. 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, Rossini's choice of the subjects does not present any kind of originality; he actually depicted all the main archaeological sites and monuments of Rome. The sole novelty is represented by the precise record of the excavation works and analysis. Quite interesting, from a documental point of view, are the last four engravings depicting the destruction of the Basilica of St. Paul outside the wall, after the fire of July the 15th, 1823. The will to give life to his views, the reinstatement of the monuments to their historic context and the fact that he was not good with figures, brought Rossini to start a partnership with Bartolomeo Pinelli, Roman engraver and costume illustrator of daily life. He was the one who realized the figures of Rossini's views. Sometimes Pinelli took the subjects from his previous collection Costumi pittoreschi romani. Roma Rome Luigi Rossini incisore.

        De la folie. Considérations sur cette maladie

      1820 - X, 511, (1bl.)pp. A Paris, chez Crevot, 1820, in-8, X, 511, (1bl.)pp, cartonnage bordeaux à la bradel, pièce de titre verte, PREMIÈRE ÉDITION, très rare de l'ouvrage principal de Georget. Exemplaire entièrement interfolié et très abondamment annoté de commentaires savants et judicieux, dont la paternité revient sans doute l'auteur lui-même ; Georget semble avoir pris ces notes en vue de préparer une réédition de son traité, qui ne verra pas le jour, probablement à cause de son décès prématuré à l'âge de 33 ans. Les commentaires complètent les définitions données, rapportent des cas observés, renvoient à des publications qui ont été consultées ultérieurement, etc. Etienne-Jean Georget (1795-1828) acquit sa réputation grâce à ce travail, publié la même année que sa thèse (Dissertation sur les causes de la folie), dont il reprend le sujet en le développant considérablement. L'auteur n'était âgé que de 25 ans au moment de cette publication. Élève de Pinel et d'Esquirol à la Salpêtrière, Georget a cherché à fixer le "siège" de la folie en remontant à la source des désordres produits, comme on le fait pour les autres maladies. Il divise la folie en cinq genres : la manie, la monomanie, la stupidité, la démence et l'idiotie. Coiffes, coins et charnières frottés. Lacune sur le feuillet de faux-titre. Semelaigne I, p. 188 et suiv. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Costume di Bagnoli. Provincia d'abruzzo nel Regno di Napoli

      1820. Un'artista, dell' 800 di un certo rilievo è Michela De Vito, figlia o sorella, non si sa bene, di Camillo De Vito, fecondissimo pittore di gouache, rappresentanti soprattutto vedute e scene di costume di Napoli. Attiva a Napoli nei primi decenni del XIX secolo viene alle volta confusa con Michele de Vito. "Pittrice raffinata, di grossa abilità disegnata, aveva la caratteristica d'ingentilire la fisionomia contrariamente a quanto solevano fare alcuni suoi colleghi, pur onorati da commesse Reali". Così la definirono De Rosa e Trastulli nel saggio introduttivo al catalogo della mostra di Chieti Il costume popolare abruzzese tra 700 e 800. Questa gentilezza dei caratteri è evidente anche nelle figure, come pure in maniera più raffinata sono presentati gli stessi vestiti, delle opere che proponiamo. Acquarelli su carta, firmati in basso a destra. Opere di grandissima qualità, databili al 1820 circa, in perfetto stato di conservazione, racchiuse entro moderna cornice dorata. Dimensioni 145x190 circa. In the XIX century, Michela De Vito became quite a famous artist. She was maybe the daughter, or sister it is not clear, of Camillo de Vito, a reknown painter of guaches depicting views and scenes from everyday life. She worked in Naples at the beginning of the XIX century; sometimes she is mistaken with Michele de Vito. "A refined painter, very skilled when it came to drawings, she had the characteristic to make her subejct more gentle, compared to her male collegues"; this is how De Rosa and Trastulli describe this artist. This gentleness is quite evident in her figures and in their clothes. Watercolour on paper, signed on lower right. High qualità works, in excellent condition, surrounded by a modern golden frame. Size 145x190. Napoli Naples

        Plan de Philae. Plan General de l'Ile et de ses Environs.

      Panckouke. Paris. No date. Ca. 1820. - Copper plate engraving (uncolored), image approximately 29 x 23 inches on sheet size 43 x 27 1/2 inches, centerfold as issued. Very good condition: light scattered foxing (mainly outside plate area), a few tears to upper and lower edge (well outside plate area). Publisher's blindstamp at top right. A beautiful engraved map showing the island of Philae with temples and other edifices and its situation in the Nile. This very large, finely engraved image is plate 1 from Volume I 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.

        Edfou (Apollinopolis Magna) - Vue Générale

      1820. Veduta generale del Tempio di Edfu dedicato al dio Horus incisa all'acquaforte su lastra di rame, inserita nella monumentale opera Description de l'Egypte, II° edizione dal 1820 - 29 voluta da Luigi XVIII, importante risultato culturale dell'occupazione francese in Egitto per il periodo che va dal 1798 al 1801. Bonaparte decise di invadere queste terre per controllare le vie commerciali verso l'india ed assestare in questo modo un duro colpo all'economia britannica. Durante questa operazione, il Nostro favorì l'attività di numerosi artisti, ingegneri, matematici e naturalisti per registrare e catalogare con estrema precisione le costruzioni e i monumenti egiziani nonché la flora e la fauna. Il risultato di questo immane sforzo, che per la pubblicazione coinvolse quasi duemila tra artisti e tecnici oltre a quattrocento incisori, fu l'opera "Description de l'Egypte, ou recueil des observations et des recherches qui ont été faites en Egypte pendant l'expédition de l'armée française", che offre una globale visione scientifica dell'antico e moderno Egitto, nonché la sua storia naturale. La Description ebbe grande influenza sul movimento orientalista pittorico dell'ottocento e diede un contributo fondamentale alla diffusione dell'Egittologia.

        School-boy's diversions: describing many new and popular sports; with Proper Directions for engaging in them. Embellished with three neat engravings, from designs by r. stennett

      London: Printed for Dean & Munday, [1820?]. [3], 6-54pp. With folding engraved frontispiece and two further engraved plates. Sewn within printed paper wrappers, with a list of 'Elegant Juvenile Books' to lower wrapper. Slight loss to spine, patches of surface loss and ink-spotting to wrappers. Some damp-staining and a little marking to plates, occasional marking to text. From the Selbourne library, with neat ink-stamp to verso of title and foot of p.51. A rare survival in the original wraps of this popular regency guide to childhood sports and, predominantly, games, The frontispiece depicting the playing of 'Hare & Hounds', 'Flying a Kite', 'Whip Top', 'Sailing Boat', 'Trundling Hoop'. 'Devil on Two Sticks' and two further plates illustrating 'Curling or Hockey' and 'Skipping Rope, Trap and Ball'. The text itself begins with a more than 2pp description of 'the noble-game of Cricket...a game so universally known in England, that scarcely a boy can be found unacquainted with it', which can be 'played either double or single'. This, combined with the relatively short shrift given to 'Foot-ball...now used principally by the vulgar, yet...by no means unworthy the attention of superior boys', suggest a middle-class target audience. It was issued as here, under the printer Dean & Munday's imprint, but also under that of A.K. Newman of the Minerva Press. Otherwise apparently identical, both editions with plate imprint date of April 1820, this copy appears much scarcer, with COPAC and OCLC locating two copies (Oxford and Cornell) other than this, being from the Selbourne collection and therefore ex-Birmingham University. . 8vo.

        Album with 60 mounted autographs by European rulers, noblemen and military men.

      Prob. assembled in Great Yarmouth, 1820s; contents date from c. 1525-1775. - 12 unnumbered ff. (1 blank), 60 numbered ff., 64 blank ff. With 56 armorial drawings in watercolors (1 in India ink) and 40 decorative grisaille cartouches washed in India ink. Late 18th c. calf with gilt spine, gilt-tooled border on boards and star-shaped center panel on both boards. Leading edges gilt. Oblong 12mo. Remarkable collection of autographs from the library of the English botanist and antiquary Dawson Turner (1775-1858) with his autogr. ownership entry on first leaf (dated 1825). Dawson, who had published on botany and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1802, turned his interests to antiquities in the 1820s. He and his children were taught to draw by their good friend, the renowned Norfolk artist John Sell Cotman, who resided in Yarmouth from 1812 to 1823. - The signatures, mostly clipped from letters and other documents, are from historic French, German and Dutch personages, including William, Prince of Orange (1533-84); Prince Eugene of Savoy (1663-1736); Johann Tserclaes, Count of Tilly, commander of the Imperial forces in the Thirty Years' War (1559-1632); Cornelius Jansen, theologian and later cardinal, founder of Jansenism (1585-1638); Philip de Montmorency, Count of Hoorn (1524-68), and Lamoral Count of Egmont (1522-68, opponents to Spanish rule in the Netherlands, executed); Johann Casimir, Duke of Saxe-Coburg (1564-1633); August the Younger, Duke of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel, founder of Wolfenbüttel's Herzog August Library (1579-1666); Johann Wilhelm von der Pfalz, Elector Palatine (1658-1716); André-Hercule de Fleury, Cardinal (1653-1743); Fredrick, landgrave of Hesse-Eschwege (1617-1655); Floris van Pallant, Count of Culemborg (1537-98); Froben Ferdinand zu Fürstenberg-Mößkirch (1664-1741), and many more. Most names are accompanied by a skilled armorial illustration in full colour painted on the opposite page; forty of the signatures are bordered by decorative washed cartouches with specially designed figurated, landscape and allegorical ornaments, sometimes rather ingeniously incorporating the signature's pen flourishes and very likely prepared by members of the art-loving and gifted Turner family, possibly with help from Cotman. - Occasional slight brownstaining; book block loosened. Corners bumped; defects to upper spine end and lower third of spine. A remarkable (and remarkably presented) ensemble of autographs, forming a striking early 19th-century showpiece.
