Charles-Louis de Secondat, baron de La Brède et de Montesquieu (1689 - 1755) moraliste, penseur politique, précurseur de la sociologie, philosophe et écrivain français des Lumières. Montesquieu, avec entre autres John Locke, est l'un des penseurs de l'organisation politique et sociale sur lesquels les sociétés modernes s'appuient. Il a notamment travaillé sur la répartition des fonctions de l'État entre ses différentes composantes, appelée postérieurement « principe de séparation des pouvoirs ». Sa grande contribution est d'avoir su exposer à ses contemporains deux modèles de liberté politique : la « liberté modérée » du régime monarchique et la « liberté extrême » incarnée par la Constitution d'Angleterre.

        Journals of Two Expeditions into the Interior of New South Wales, undertaken by order of the British Government in the Years 1817-18

      John Murray, London 1820 - Quarto, 3 folding maps or charts (the Chart of New South Wales with a small tear along a fold, but with no loss and a neat sealed tear) , 2 folding tables, a folding engraved plate (repaired) and five aquatints, two with original hand-colouring; an attractive copy rebound in modern polished calf spine gilt-decorated. First edition: 'arguably the most handsome of all Australian exploration journals? the foundation work in the field of Australian inland exploration and the first detailed description of the interior of New South Wales?' (Australian Rare Books). Oxley's book is now also recognised as of great note for Oxley's extensive notes on the Aboriginal tribes of the Wiradjuri of central New South Wales.Oxley's great narrative of his two major expeditions, the first detailed description of the Australian interior and the earliest book devoted to Australian inland exploration. 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. Although their prime objective was not met, the expedition saw 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 "A Native Chief of Bathurst", prepared after a drawing by John Lewin. This is one of very few known Aboriginal subjects by Australia's first professional artist. There are also views drawn by Major James Taylor from sketches by Evans.

        The Black Book; or, Corruption Unmasked! Being an account of places, pensions, and sinecures, the revenues of the clergy and landed aristocracy.the Civil List.the robbery of charitable foundations.the whole forming a complete exposition of the cost, influence, patronage, and corruption of the Borough Government

      John Fairburn, London 1820 - First Edition. 1 vols. 8vo. "The Bible of the Reformers". The first edition of a book which led the battle for electoral reform in 19th Century England, being a compilation of the financial, political, ecclesiastical, and nepotistic abuses which were sustained under the institution of rotten and pocket boroughs, and which brought about the passage of the Reform bill of 1832. The Bill redistributed 143 parliamentary seats to industrial areas, providing more proportional representation, reducing the traditional powers of the large landowners and the aristocracy, and strengthening the British system of parliamentary democracy.Wade's fascinating exposé went into numerous editions, in which he named names, listed unearned compensations, pointed out abuses of patronage, the milking of foundations, political log-rolling, influence peddling and other conduct, all of which has a curiously modern ring. "Religion a trade, justice a trade, government a trade--all for money; nothing for the public good." A fierce and fascinating book. PMM 296; Kress C.638 Contemporary boards, black stained edges, rebacked and with new corners, some internal foxing, else a nice, crisp copy [Attributes: First Edition]

        Life and Adventures of Robinson Crusoe, The

      London: T. Cadell and W. Davies, 1820. - "The Finest English Edition" Large Paper Copy in a Contemporary Binding by J. MackenzieDEFOE, Daniel. STOTHARD, Thomas, illustrator. The Life and Adventures of Robinson Crusoe. Embellished with engravings from designs by Thomas Stothard London: T. Cadell and W. Davies, 1820. Second Stothard illustrated edition, large paper copy. Two large octavo volumes (9 1/2 x 6 inches; 242 x 153 mm.). [iv], xcii, 429, [1, blank]; [ii], [v], [i, blank], 415, [1, blank], pp. Engraved title-page vignettes and 20 engraved plates (including frontispiece in volume one) by Charles Heath after Thomas Stothard, all printed on India paper and mounted.Bound ca. 1820 by J. Mackenzie (stamp-signed in black on verso of front end-papers) in full red morocco, covers with a four-line gilt border, spines with five raised bands, decoratively tooled in compartments and with two green morocco gilt lettering labels. Decorative gilt board-edges and turn-ins, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. The plates margins are foxed as usual but the images on India paper are fresh and bright. An excellent copy in a near fine contemporary binding.This edition includes a long introduction giving an account of Defoe's life and works. The plates here have been re-engraved after the earlier illustrations were judged as poor and inaccurate. "Thomas Stothard (1755-1834). completed his studies at the Royal Academy in 1783. [and soon] began to establish a strong reputation as a history painter, in one case attracting comparisons with Correggio and Parmigianino. He was elected ARA in 1791 and RA in 1794. Despite his growing reputation as a painter, book illustration seems still to have been his steadiest form of income. Many of his illustrations were for reissues, as in his celebrated illustrations for John Stockdale's edition of Defoe's Robinson Crusoe in 1790 (a sketch for Robinson Crusoe Building his Canoe is in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford) and it is clear that Stothard's images were an important factor in their popularity."He illustrated almost the whole range of English literature with a taste that seldom failed and a sympathy that was often remarkable," attaining "a place which is second to none for invention and grace." He was a close friend of Blake, and his work often resembles that of his more famous colleague. (Oxford DNB).Joseph Mackenzie was a London bookbinder of considerable eminence, known as one of London's finest binders and Bookbinder to the King. Joseph Zaehnsdorf was an apprentice in the shop of Mr. Mackenzie, and remained there until 1844, when he commenced business on his own account at 2 Wilson Street, Covent Garden, London.Lowndes 1, 614

Hegi wurde für seine unzähligen Kupferstiche und Aquatinta für Neujahrsblätter, Almanache und Bücher bekannt. Seine Bilder sind heute eine wertvolle Quelle für die Schweiz des späten 18. und frühen 19. Jahrhunderts.Please notify before visiting to see a book. Prices are excl.

        The Emigrant's Guide to Upper Canada; Or, Sketches of the Present State of that Province, Collected From a Residence Therein During the Years 1817, 1818, 1819. Interspersed with reflections

      Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, London 1820 - xi, 335 p. 20 cm. Publisher's wraps, rebacked. Corners worn. Paper repairs to front hinge, front free endpaper. Ink stamp front pastedown and stamp and ink inscription across from title page. Tear in front free endpaper. Front endpapers and title darkened but in general paper clean. Son of a British army officer, Charles Stuart was born in Jamaica. After 14 years service as a commissioned officer in the service of the East India Company, he came to Upper Canada in 1817. Devoutly religious, Stuart found an outlet for his humanitarian zeal in vigorous anti-slavery activities. Most of his written works are abolitionist tracts denouncing slavery, but "The Emigrants Guide to Upper Canada" is his best known work today. This guide describes the climate, settlements, state of society, the best season for travel, etc. He exhorts the newly arrived to avoid the night air by acquiring an ample supply of blankets at Quebec or Montreal (p. 164), lists the requirements for the advancement of the province (p. 188), and comments on the comparative advantages between Upper Canada and the U.S (p. 248). Most of us will agree that "insects, during the summer months, are the greatest natural nuisance in the country.The mosquitoe wanders round.with its perpetual alarum of attack" (p. 298). Still an interesting read. TPL 1186. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Oeuvres de Florian Don Quixote, Galatea, Fables, Theatres, Melanges, Numa Pompilius, etc.

      Paris: Antoine-Augustin Renouard, 1820. Hard cover. Very Good/The 1853 sale catalogue of books belonging to the printer-scholar Antoine Augustin Renouard describes several versions of his 1820 edition of the works of Florian in duodecimo: a trade edition (#2453), an edition "with the plates from other editions," untrimmed (#2454), yet another, on pink velin, with an extra set of plates on Chine (#2455), and finally another just like it on green velin (#2456). The copy offered here does not correspond exactly to any of those entries, since it consist partly of the edition on pink velin, and partly on plain velin, and since it includes at least three states of practically every plate, but extends to five states of some plates (illustrating Don Quixote). Indeed, Florian's Don Quixote was one of his successes, next to his fables and pastorals. His mother was Spanish, and Florian was instrumental in promoting Cervantes to a French audience through translations, imitations (such as his Galatea), and popularizations. Brunet thought Florian "the best of our fabulists, after La Fontaine." . 12mo (19 cm); 16 volumes. 80 engraved illustrations (mostly by Desenne), each presented in several states of printing on different stock. The vast majority of these are in three states, one on pink velin, one state on white Chine, and a third on white velin. Two of the engravings are represented in 4 states, and six of them are present in 5 states. Although Renouard clearly printed editions of this book on uniform stock of white, pink, or green velin, this copy is mixed white and pink, with some volumes all pink, some all white, and several which shift from gathering to gathering. Uniformly bound in original 1/4 green cloth over marbled boards, with leather label on spine titled in gilt. One volume with loss to lower right corner of binding; bindings exhibit minor to light wear otherwise. Text block fresh, untrimmed, with occasional waterstains and occasional foxing on some plates.

        Watercolour "Insectes de la Praya (11 X.bre 1820)"

      La Praya, Rio de Janeiro, 1820. Single sheet of paper, 255 x 195 mm, with four figures in ink and watercolour and an ink caption; in fine condition. Insects by a Freycinet artist. Charming watercolour of coastal insects of Rio de Janeiro by one of the artists who accompanied Freycinet on the Uranie expedition.Born in France, Adrien Taunay the younger moved with his family to Rio de Janeiro while still young. In 1818 he joined the Freycinet expedition when it called at Rio; on the return journey he stayed on in Rio after the expedition's second vessel, the Physicienne, departed in September 1820 - much to the regret of his shipboard companion and fellow-artist Jacques Arago, who lamented in his eccentric book about the voyage that 'a whole family, all members of which cultivate the arts with success, lives unknown, and rather despised, in a half-savage country, where it hoped for patrons, and where it has found nothing but humiliations'. 'O Taunay!' Arago later exclaimed, 'What could have induced you to come to Rio?'Taunay stayed in touch with his fellow voyagers, and was responsible for a number of the drawings that made their way into print in the official publication of the voyage, including a substantial number of the scientific images resulting from the expedition's visits to Western Australia and to Port Jackson. This study of coastal insects of the region remained along with others by the young artist among Freycinet family papers until modern times. Completed a month or so after the expedition had left to return to France it was very likely among natural history drawings commissioned by Freycinet for eventual use in the publication. Subsequently Taunay travelled into the Brazilian interior as a member of the Langsdorff expedition; he died crossing the Guaporé River in 1828.

        Lamia, Isabella, and Other Poems

      London: Taylor and Hessey, 1820. 16mo. 199pp. First edition. The third and final volume of Keats's work published during the poet's short life. Primarily written during the first nine months of 1819, the collection was finally published in July 1820, only seven months before Keats succumbed to tuberculosis at the tender age of 25. Critically panned during his lifetime, Keats's work did not receive popular or literary acclaim until after his death. He died believing, as he said in a letter to Fanny Brawne, that he had "left no immortal work behind me - nothing to make my friends proud of my memory." Little did he know that the work in this little volume, unappreciated at the time, would become one of the most important books of poetry every published. This collection contains many of Keats's finest and most well-known works including his series of odes: "Ode to a Nightingale," "Ode on a Grecian Urn," "Ode on Melancholy," "Ode to Psyche," and "To Autumn." Also present are the three titular poems, "Lamia," "Isabella," and "The Eve of St. Agnes," as well as "Fancy," "Ode (Bards of Passion and of Mirth)," "Lines on the Mermaid Tavern," and "Hyperion, A Fragment." This rare first edition has been beautifully rebound in gilt-stamped green morocco with marbled endpapers by the Riviere & Son Bindery. Bound without half title or rear advertisements, but does include "Advertisement" leaf after title page which explains the inclusion of the unfinished Hyperion. A.e.g. Slight wear to spine, occasional light pencil underlining, and one torn page expertly repaired, otherwise fine.

II, 131. - Augustus Bozzi Granvill (1783 - 1872) studierte Medizin in Pavia und wurde nach einer abenteuerlichen Jugend im Jahre 1818 als Arzt an der Westminster Dispensary sesshaft. 1829 wurde er Präsident der Westminster Medical Society. Granville untersuchte Gesundheitsstatistiken und Todesursachen bei der Arbeiterschaft und setzte sich hartnäckig für die notwendigen Reformen ein. Granville hat daneben 1821 die erste medizinische Autopsie an einer antiken ägyptischen Mumie - Irtyersenu (etwa 600-550 v. Chr.) - vorgenommen. Er glaubte damals Gebärmutterkrebs als Todesursache festgestellt zu haben. Diese Meinung wurde erst in den Jahren nach 2000 widerlegt. - "In 1819 he also publsihed his obervations on the internal use of the hydro-cyanic (prussic) acid in irritant diseases of the lungs such as consumption, the idea being derived from his having observed the use of the laurel water in Venice some years previously" (Alex Sakula: Augustus Bozzi Granville.

        (Der Hl. Aquilin vor der Stadtansicht von Würzburg),

      um 1820.. . Das Bild wird beherrscht durch die Figur des Hl. Aquilin, die auf einem kleinen Absatz des Steinberges sich dem Betrachter entgegen stellt und links und rechts den Blick auf Würzburg frei gibt. Rechts des Heiligen erkennt man den Main, das Mainviertel sowie Festung und Käppele, links sind die Domtürme prägend. Der Heilige Aquilin im Ornat und mit dem Erkennungsmerkmal des im Hals steckenden Dolches. Anonyme Ölmalerei a. verleimter Leinwand, um 1820. Ca 61 x 52 cm. - Neu gerahmt. Rahmung im Preis inbegriffen. Guter Zustand, einige wenige weiße Tropfen im unteren Bereich. - Qualitätvolle Malerei. Seitdem bekannt geworden war, dass der Hl. Aquilin aus Würzburg stammt, stieg seine Popularität im 18. Jahrhundert stark an. Fürstbischof Christoph Franz von Hutten plante ihn sogar wohl für eine Figur auf der Alten Mainbrücke ein, was eine Zeichnung aus dem Martin-von-Wagner-Museum belegt. Das Bild entstand mit Sicherheit nach 1804, da vor der Stadt die zu diesem Zeitpunkt gepflanzte Pappelreihe zu sehen ist, die auch schon eine stattliche Größe aufweist.

        Eingangshalle mit Treppen, Brunnen, Wasserspeiern und Nischenfiguren.

      - Bleistift, braun laviert, mit schwarzer Tuschlinie umrandet, auf Bütten, rechts unten signiert und datiert „Hetsch. 1820.". 15:20,7 cm. Der Sohn des bedeutenden Stuttgarter klassizistischen Malers Philipp Friedrich Hetsch (1758-1838) studierte anfangs Mathematik in Tübingen, wandte sich dann aber der Architektur zu. 1808 ging er mit seinem Vater nach Paris, um sich weiterzubilden und war als Bauleiter an der Restaurierung von Ste Geneviève (Pantheon) tätig. 1812 kehrte er nach Stuttgart zurück. Da der Krieg Bautätigkeiten verhinderte, ging er nach Italien. In Rom lernte er den dänischen Architekten Peder Malling (1781-1865) kennen, an den er sich anschloß. Durch ihn lernte er den Künstlerkreis um Bertel Thorvaldsen (1770-1844) und Christoffer Wilhelm (1783-1853) Eckersberg kennen. Mit Malling kam er im Oktober 1815 nach Dänemark und wurde dort Lehrer an der neu errichteten Ornamentschule für Architekten. Zu Christian Frederik Hansen (1756-1845), dem bedeutendsten Architekten der Zeit, entwickelte sich eine enge Beziehung. 1820 wurde Hetsch Mitglied der Akademie und erhielt 1822 die Professur für Perspektive. 1828-1857 war er Leiter der Kgl. Porzellanmanufaktur und darüber hinaus an verschiedenen anderen Projekten beteiligt. Seit 1829 war er außerordentlicher, seit 1835 ordentlicher Professor für Architektur, 1844-1857 war er auch Direktor der technischen Schule. Hetschs bedeutendste Bauwerke in Kopenhagen sind: die Synagoge in der Krystalgade (1833) und die Kathol. Kirche in der Bredgade (1842). „Hetsch wurde nie ein Architekt von Bedeutung, aber er gewann als Vertreter des Empirestils und als eifriger Befürworter des Anschlusses der Kunst an das Handwerk einen durchgreifenden Einfluß auf den Geschmack der Zeit." (Zit. aus: Thieme/Becker Bd. XVI, S. 599).
