He produced highly successful ballets including Pygmalion (starring his young sister-in-law, Émilie Bigottini) and Héro et Léandre, after which he was named assistant ballet master to Pierre Gardel. "Another ballet that made a favorable impression several years later was Clari. with Bigottini and Albert in the principal roles. 'It was a typical example of pre-Romantic ballet,' said Ivor Guest (1980), 'with characters drawn from everyday life and its action evincing a rather naive sympathy with the common people.' " Monique Babsky in the International Encyclopedia of Dance, Vol. 4, pp. 422-423. He was also considered the last "grand professeur" of pantomime at the Opéra." Wikipedia [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Bemerkungen auf Reisen gesammelt im Jahr 1803.

      um 1820. - Deutsche Handschrift auf Papier. 1 Blatt, 481 nummerierte Seiten, Halblederband der Zeit, 24,5 x 20,5 cm, Einband etwas berieben, sonst ein gut erhaltenes, sauberes Exemplar. Interessanter, säuberlich niedergeschriebener Bericht einer sechsmonatigen Reise, die den Verfasser als jungen Mann durch Mittel- und Westeuropa führte. Der ungarische Graf und Gutsherr Emerich (auch Imre) Teleki de Szek (1782-1848) hatte die Reise ein halbes Jahr, bevor er im Oktober 1803 sein Studium an der Göttinger Universität aufnahm, zusammen mit einem Freund angetreten, und während der knapp sechs Monate, die sie unterwegs waren, ein Reisetagebuch geführt. Wie er im Vorwort der vorliegenden Handschrift erklärt, fielen ihm die Aufzeichnungen in den zwei "Decennien" danach zufällig mehrfach in die Hände, bis er sich entschloß, sie zu seiner eigenen und der Unterhaltung seiner Familie zusammengefaßt niederzuschreiben. Die Reise, die vom 19. März bis 5. Oktober 1803 dauerte, führte Teleki und seinen Freund von Oberösterreich (Salzkammergut, Linz, Traunfall, Gmunden, Bad Ischl, Ebensee, Hallstätter See, Salzburg) über Süd- und Südwestdeutschland und die Rheingegend (mit München, Augsburg, Ulm, Göppingen, Stuttgart, Ludwigsburg, Heilbronn, Tübingen, Schwarzwald, Heidelberg, Bergstraße, Darmstadt, Mainz, Frankfurt, Koblenz) nach Belgien und Holland (Lüttich, Brüssel, Antwerpen, Bergen op Zoom, Rotterdam, Delft, Den Haag, Amsterdam, Utrecht, Arnheim) und zurück an den Rhein mit Düsseldorf und Köln; Endstation war Göttingen, wo sich Teleki im Oktober 1803 an der Universität immatrikulierte. Seine in freundlichem Ton gehaltenen, teils umfangreichen Notizen weisen den Grafen als vielfältig interessierten, neuen Eindrücken aufgeschlossenen Reisenden aus; seine Beobachtungen betreffen die Landschaft (zu Anfang oft mit Reminiszenz an seine ungarische Heimat), Bevölkerung, Brauchtum, Kleidung, Unterkünfte, Wirtschaftszweige, bei bedeutenderen Städten wie Salzburg oder Amsterdam auch angereichert mit umfangreiche Details zur Stadtgeschichte und Kultur. Hervorzuheben ist sein „Zusammentreffen" mit Napoléon Bonaparte, der sich im Juli 1803 für zehn Tage in Brüssel aufhielt, und den Teleki auf Empfängen und Bällen und bei einem Festzug durch die Stadt zu sehen mehrfach Gelegenheit hatte; eine persönliche Audienz blieb ihm jedoch trotz mehrfachen Vorsprechens bei Talleyrand verwehrt (S. 243ff.). Erschlossen wird der Reisebericht durch ein Ortsregister auf der Rückseite des letzten Blattes. Graf Teleki war Gutsherr mehrerer Anwesen in der Grafschaft Sathmar (Szatmar, heute ein zwischen Rumänien, Ungarn und der Ukraine aufgeteiltes Gebiet). Mit seiner Frau Karoline geb. Brunswick (1782-1843) hatte er drei Kinder, darunter Blanka Teleki (1806-62), ungarische Pädagogin, Frauenrechtlerin und Schriftstellerin und Begründerin des ungarischen Kindergartenwesens.

        Ivanhoe; A Romance

      Edinburgh: Archibald Constable and Co, 1820. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. 8vo. 3 volumes: 298 [306] pp.; 327 pp.; 371 pp. The three volumes are quarter-bound in green morocco over textured green cloth with twin gold rules on the borders on both front and rear boards, spine with 5 gilt raised bands and gilt design and lettering, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Bound by Riviere & Son with later professional strengthening to the joints. Lacking the half-titles in volume 1 and volume 2, advertisements at the end of volume 3 are not bound in (fly titles present in all 3 volumes). Volumes 2 and 3 correspond to the first issue of the first edition as specified in Todd & Bowden. Volume 1 has the pagination error indicative of the first edition and 'toilsome' at xv.3 which is indicative of the first issue; however, the figures called for on the sheets vary between what is specified for the first and second issue (sheets A, F, I-P, and S-Y correspond to what is called for in the first issue, sheets B-E and G correspond to what is called for in the second issue, and sheets Q and R do not correspond to any in Todd & Bowden). An attractive set of Scott's best known novel, a historical romance set in 12th century England. Worthington (8); Todd & Bowden 140Aa. The green leather has mellowed to a rich brown on the spines, a few traces of rubbing and trivial wear to the boards, the vast majority of the leaves are quite clean (a few have hints of foxing).

        Route of Lieutenant-General Sir Miles Nightingall, K.C.B. Overland from India

      1820 - First edition. Folding map. 8vo. Contemporary polished calf, rebacked, ownership signature to title. viii, [ii](subscribers), 284, [1](erratta)pp. London, The heroic title of this work is rather misleading. Hanson in company with Sir Miles and Lady Nightingall made a sea voyage from Bombay to the Red Sea, where, off Mocha, their ship grounded and they found themselves at the mercy of ? local ruffians? . The ship successfully re-floated made for Jeddah, where the passengers were cordially treated by the the Turkish Governor, newly established after the Egyptian miltary campaign to restore Ottomant rule in Arabia. After taking advice from Salt, the party determined on an overland route to the Nile from Kosseir on the Red Sea in order to visit Thebes. They found: ?the passage across the desert in the cool months of January, February, March and April, is to be performed with trifling inconvenience.? Lady Nightingall, whose good humour and stoicism Hanson oft applauds, is the undisputed heroine of this narrative. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Lamia, Isabella, The Eve of St. Agnes, and other poems.

      London: Printed for Taylor and Hessey,, 1820. Duodecimo (177 x 104 mm). Bound by Bedford in 19th-century green morocco, spine lettered and decorated in gilt, boards triple-ruled in gilt, elaborate gilt dentelles, vellum doublures and endpapers, top edge gilt. With the half-title and publisher's advertisement leaf, and the 6-page publisher's catalogue to the rear, the latest date being June 1820. Light wear to spine ends and joints, some minor scuffing to front board, overall an excellent copy with bright, fresh contents. First edition of keats's third and final book, a superb copy with the half-title, advertisements, and untrimmed in a fine Bedford binding. This was the last book published in Keats's lifetime, about which he had "low hopes, though not spirits... this shall be my last trial; not succeeding, I shall try what I can do in the apothecary line". Though Keats did not live to see his fame confirmed, this last collection is his greatest single volume, containing the magnificent series of odes on which his reputation now rests, as well as his longer narrative poems – two medieval romances: the chilling "Isabella or the Pot of Basil" and the gothic romance "The Eve of St Agnes"; and two mythological fantasies: the weird "Lamia" and the ambitious, Miltonic fragment "Hyperion".

        Proposal to Murder the Queen! Englishmen! London, 1820

      1820. London, 1820. 22-1/2" x 17-1/2" broadside. London, 1820. 22-1/2" x 17-1/2" broadside. A Fervent Broadside Defending the Spurned Queen of King George IV [Broadside]. [Caroline of Brunswick (1768-1821)]. [Pains and Penalties Bill]. Proposal to Murder the Queen! London: Printed by W. Benbow, [1820]. 22-1/2" x 17-1/2" broadside. Text in single column below headline, item mounted to archival paper. Light toning, some edgewear with a few small chips, one vertical and one horizontal fold line, some loss to legibility of about five words along horizontal fold. $1,500. * The repudiation of Queen Caroline by King George IV was one of the most sensational events in English history. Estranged soon after their marriage, Caroline was eventually banished after the birth of their daughter, Princess Charlotte Augusta. In 1814 Caroline moved to Europe. In 1820 her husband's accession to the throne brought her back to Britain. The King asked his ministers to get rid of her. After she refused a monetary offer, the Earl of Liverpool introduced The Pains and Penalties Bill to the House of Lords in July 1820 in order to strip Caroline of the title of Queen Consort and dissolve her marriage. (The bill alleged that Caroline had an affair with a servant, Bartolomeo Bergami, while in Italy.) The bill was approved by the House of Lords, but it was not submitted to the House of Commons, where it would have been defeated. Despite the King's best attempts, Caroline remained a popular favorite. Indeed, her popularity increased during the trial. Although she prevailed, she fell ill and died shortly after the coronation of George IV. She was certain that she was poisoned by one of the King's agents. The trial inspired numerous books, pamphlets and ephemera, such as this anonymous broadside. One of many publications that supported Caroline's cause, it takes issue with a statement against Caroline that appeared in a newspaper on June 26, 1820. Its author said she was an "alien and unworthy object" who needs to be dismissed, either as a "martyr or a criminal." The broadside claims this statement is essentially a call to have her executed, since that is the common fate of martyrs and often the fate of deposed royalty.

        A View of Dawes Battery at the Entrance of Sydney Cove

      Rudolph Ackermann, dated September 1, London 1820 - Engraved view measuring 230 x 335mm. (plate size), early handcolouring. An early engraved view of Sydney Cove, itself the extraordinary outcome of the fruitful relationship between two convict engravers, Walter Preston and Joseph Lycett, and the artistically talented army officer Major James Wallis.This plate forms the frontispiece of Wallis' fine album of Australian views titled An Historical Account of the Colony of New South Wales published by Ackermann in London in 1821. The plate was engraved by the convict artist Walter Preston whose considerable talents came to the attention of Major Wallis, then commander of the convict settlement at Newcastle. At the time, Newcastle enjoyed a fearsome reputation for as a place for secondary punishment and was described by a contemporary officer as 'the Hell of New South Wales'.For many years the attribution of Wallis as the artist of the views in An Historical Account of the Colony of New South Wales was a matter of historical conjecture (the implication being that he had appropriated the work of Preston and Lycett). However, the recent revelation of original watercolour material by Wallis establishes him as the artist. Not that this fact diminishes the achievement of the convict engravers: Preston was tasked with working upon the only copper sheets available, manufactured for sheathing the hulls of ships, a difficult material softer than standard engraving copper.Ultimately, both Preston and Lycett were pardoned by Macquarie on Wallis' recommendation, in no small part because of their work on this book. When Wallis departed Australia in 1819 he took the plates with him to London where this book was published by Ackermann, complete with an introductory history of the colony and a map of Port Macquarie by the surveyor John Oxley. Small closed tear affects upper blank margin (image entirely unaffected, now expertly repaired); very good.

        The Miscellaneous Poems. In Four Volumes; [Together with] Yarrow Revisited, and Other Poems.

      London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown; and Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, Green, & Longman, and Edward Moxon,, 1820 & 1835. Together, 2 works in 5 volumes, duodecimo (165 x 98 mm). Contemporary green morocco, titles gilt to spines, spines and sides panelled in gilt and blind, board edges and turn-ins gilt-rolled, red coated endpapers, brown silk bookmarkers, gilt edges. Front blank, rear blank, and errata leaf in vol. I, engraved frontispiece to vols. I–IV (folding in vol. III), half-title to vols. II, III, and V. Spines evenly tanned, some minor nicks to ends and corners and a few minor marks and scratches but on the whole a beautiful set, internally sound and fresh but for very minor spotting or offsetting from the frontispiece plates, excellent condition. An extraordinary and rare presentation set of Wordsworth's Miscellaneous Poems (his first collected edition), inscribed by the author in each volume to his friend the poet and literary patron John Kenyon (1784–1856), together with a presentation copy to Kenyon of the later collection Yarrow Revisited bound to match at the time of presentation. All four volumes of the Miscellaneous Poems are inscribed on the title page verso in Wordsworth's hand, "To John Kenyon from his sincere friend William Wordsworth". All five volumes are inscribed by Kenyon, either on the half-title or title page, in the first four volumes "from the author to J. Kenyon", and in the fifth "From the Author. John Kenyon. London. 1835". The first volume of Miscellaneous Poems, and the Yarrow Revisited, are both additionally inscribed "from the author" in a different hand, either that of the publisher or his clerk. The splendid bindings are contemporary and appear (from the very slight cropping of his ownership inscriptions) to have been bound for Kenyon shortly after receipt. John Kenyon was himself a poet, and published three collections, but is best remembered as a patron of poets. He first became acquainted with Wordsworth in 1819. Wordsworth wrote many fulsome and friendly letters to Kenyon, and they hosted one another reciprocally in London and the Lakes. From their letters it appears that Kenyon sent frequent gifts to the Wordsworths, and they, for their part, used their connections to get Kenyon admitted to the Athenaeum Club. Kenyon was also friends with other Romantics such as Coleridge (to whom he provided much financial support), Southey (with whom Kenyon toured France in 1838) and Charles Lamb, as well as later poets such as Walter Savage Landor (who stayed with Kenyon when in England and wrote part of Orestes at Delpho under his roof), and perhaps most notably Robert Browning, who was his lifelong friend and who received the princely sum of £10,000 in Kenyon's will. It was Kenyon who first introduced Browning to Elizabeth Barrett, who was Kenyon's cousin. Kenyon was also responsible for introducing EBB to Wordsworth in 1836, which was the spur of much mutual literary admiration. This set was later in the library of Irish judge and collector William O'Brien (1832-99), which was endowed on his death to the Milltown Park Jesuit Library, Dublin. Each volume bears his post-mortem bookplate and the Milltown Park library ticket to front pastedown, and the library ink stamp to title or half-title page. Wordsworth's Miscellaneous Poems was the first edition to collect his published works (with the exception of the Excursion), drawing from Evening Walk, Descriptive Sketches (1793), Lyrical Ballads (1789 and 1790), Poems, in two Volumes (1807), Additional Pieces, and the White Doe of Rylstone (1815), Thanksgiving Ode (1816), The Tale of Peter Bell, and the Waggoner (1819), and River Duddon (1820). Naturally, the vast majority of Wordsworth's most significant and best loved poems are contained herein. It also entailed the first publication of a number of sonnets. It prints the Preface of 1815 and also reprints at the rear of volume IV the Preface to the Lyrical Ballads of 1800, dubbed the "manifesto" of the Romantic movement, with its famous definition of poetry as "the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings … emotion recollected in tranquillity". Complete sets of the Miscellaneous Poems are scarce enough, but to have a fully inscribed presentation set is a great rarity. The last authorially inscribed copy we can trace at auction was inscribed in only one volume, and appeared at Anderson Galleries in 1932. The only other copy we can trace thus inscribed by Wordsworth in each volume was to his daughter Dora, and appeared at Anderson Galleries in 1909. That the only other copy we can find thus inscribed was to his daughter shows something of the close friendship shared by Wordsworth and Kenyon.
