ALGER. MANUSCRIT.
[circa 1820]. 443 x 466 mm, monté sur papier fort. Dessin sur papier à l'encre de Chine, lavis et rehauts de couleur montrant une vue d'Alger depuis la mer, copié d'après une lithographie intitulée «Vue d'Alger imédiatement avant le bombardement par l'escadre anglaise, sous le lord Exmouth, le 27 août 1816» publiée à Paris, imprimerie de E. Ardit, 1816, et dessinée par Benj. Hayter, officier à bord de L'Impregnable. L'auteur du dessin a scrupuleusement copié son modèle, reprenant les lettres de renvoi et leur légende, sauf en ce qui concerne l'escadre anglaise : la mer et le port sont vides, et la légende commence à la lettre P car le début de l'alphabet a été utilisé pour nommer tous les navires de ladite escadre. Pour le titre et la légende, l'auteur a utilisé une encre qui a troué le papier, ces endroits ont été anciennement découpés et les parties manquantes réécrites sur des bandes de papier. Fente sans manque au milieu du dessin.

Francesco Petrarca
Livorno, Italy: Dai Torchi Di Glauco Masi. Condition: Very Good +. Lovely 1820 edition of one of the first great modern collections of love poetry, written by the Renaissance poet viewed as the "first true reviver of learning in Medieval Europe" (Encyclopedia Britannica). The story of Petrarch's love for Laura is well-known but the spirituality and complexity of this love and the cataclysmic loss he felt at her death can be understood only by reading this cycle of his poems. Bound in a modern 1/4 red morocco over marbled boards (with matching marbled endpapers). 5 raised bands, gilt-rule and gilt-devices within the compartments. A solidly VG+ copy, with very light staining confined to the upper inner margins of the first third of Vol. I. This edition is very handsomely printed as well. Masi, the printer, boats on the title page that it is printed with types supplied by Fermin Didot, the great Parisian printer. Each volume has a lithographed frontispiece portrait accomplished on the stone by F. Wagner. The portrait of Petrarch introduces Vol. I and the portrait of Laura Vol. II. Thick octavo, Vol. I consists of 362 pgs., Vol. II 242 pgs.

Rodriguez was a major figure in the early military and political history of Argentina and the Governor of Buenos Aires from 1820-1824. He established a truce with Gov. Estanislao López of Santa-Fé. At first he supported Rosas, but later turned against him; he died in exile in Montevideo where his Memoirs were published after his death, in 1849. In this proclamation he promises to ovecome the problems and criminality of the prior government and eventually succeeds according to Zinny: "En efecto, en tan difíciles circunstancias, y apesar del melancólico cuadro que presentaba la situacion, para el delicado puesto de gobernar un pueblo sumergido en la mas espantosa anarquía que la historia argentina recuerda, el general Rodriguez cumplió al pié de la letra lo que en esta proclama prometía."

Tompkins, Daniel]
[Albany]: Albany Argus, 1820. Elephant folio broadside, 22" x 18". Old folds, docketed in ink on verso. Printed in three columns after the caption title. Some spotting, a couple of holes just grazing a letter in the title. Good+. At head of title: "ALBANY ARGUS Extra. Tuesday April 18, 1820."A rare broadside from New York State's hotly contested 1820 gubernatorial election. It supports Daniel Tompkins, who had been Governor from 1807-1817 and was now James Monroe's vice president. Clintonians considered Tompkins a crook although, as his supporters insist, "he has been vilely traduced and cruelly persecuted" and exonerated of this charge. The "astonishing" claim that Tompkins "is the advocate of slavery" is also rebutted.Tompkins was the candidate of the "Bucktail" faction of New York's Democratic Republicans. Bucktails resented the Clinton dynasty, were angered by Clinton's covert support for Rufus King's election to the U.S. Senate, and opposed Clinton's affection for canal-building. Tompkins was a strong candidate, but lost the election. Most of the third column consists of his supporters' names: Martin Van Buren, Erastus Root, Peter Livingston, Henry Field, and more than fifty other active New York politicos.

Item #21091 Berry, Charles-Ferdinand de Bourbon, duc de, 1778-1820. "[Joseph] Thouvenin (1790-1834) was the outstanding binder of the French Restoration period. His fame was so universal that both Blazac and Stendhal mentioned him in their novels; it persists to the present day. Among his clientele he also counted English and Russian collectors. Although he did not invent the style 'a la cathedrale', as is often claimed on his behalf (the London binder Whitaker was its originator), he brought it to perfection, and became its principal practitioner in France."

For sale is an exceptionally rare and important 6-volume FIRST EDITION collection of Don Juan, by Lord Byron. Published 1820-23. Each volume being in the First Edition, and comprising the complete set of cantos I-IVI. The volumes are entirely complete throughout. This unsophisticated collection is bound in the publisher's original boards, with paper labels, denoting the canto numbers, to the spines. They remain refreshingly as they did when they were first published; entirely untouched. There are losses to the spines in places, and the odd jot of rubbing to the boards, but this matters not. Internally, they could not be cleaner; they remain in excellent order, with the page edges uncut. Overall, this marvellous collection could not come more highly recommended. Very rare, in and of themselves, but even more so in a complete collection. To find a set which has not been touched is a joy, and it comes very highly recommended.

John Crawford
Printed for Thomas Boys of Ludgate Hill printed by Thomas, 1820. Condition: Near fine. Quarto size, 212 pp. (not matching pagination, see below), with 12 aquatints by Isaac Robert Cruikshank. A humorous collection of sketches exalting through parody the merits of the thrifty. The writing, although very much a parody, contains many nuggets of truths which illuminate how little the world has changed in the about 200 years since the book's publication: "Money, money alone, though it has been unaccountably neglected by authors, strangers perhaps to its very name, and still more to its practical use and management.. . is the mainspring of all human action, want, wish, and desire." The author goes on to state that it is the desire of "the Save-all Club" to keep "the Kind and Benevolent Reader" out of the grip of poverty through thrift. The "Rules of the Club" provide amusing proof of such virtue: Rule VI, "The smallest superfluous expense is not only a reproach to a member, but he may be fined by the Committee, for the use of the poor"; and Rule IV, "As a new coat never fails to attract animadversion in the Club, the members are requested to avoid that singularity as much as possible. If it prove that the coat is only turned, the owner shall dine that day GRATIS". Isaac Robert Cruikshank (1759-1856) was a popular English caricature artist and cartoonist, and like his brother George, is known for his pioneer work in the history of comics and comic strip cartoons. He collaborated often with George, who is better known for his work with Charles Dickens. This edition was originally i … [Click Below for Full Description]

Printed at the Minerva Press for A.K. Newman & Co. 1820. FIRST EDITION. 4 vols. 12mo. Ad. on verso of final leaf vols I, II & III; tiny hole in sig. C10 vol. II not affecting sense. Contemp. half calf, single-ruled gilt borders, spines with raised gilt bands, maroon & black morocco labels; sl. rubbing to extremities. Each vol. inscribed on titlepage, 'J.M. Parson, the gift of her uncle G. Webb', some trimming in upper margin. Blind-stamped 'Knowepark, Portsoy, Banffshire'. An attractive, clean & fresh copy of a very difficult title. Although he includes several of Roche's titles, The Munster Cottage Boy is not in Loeber; not in Sadleir or Wolff, who owned only one of her titles. Blakey p.270. Copac lists several copies, but this title is scare in commerce. A convoluted tale of love, treachery, mistaken identity, and mysterious strangers, set for the most part in the sleepy Munster coastal town of Strandstown. The heroine, Fidelia, is unaware of her father's identity, but is unwittingly taken into his protection as she attempts to flee an aggressively insistent and dishonourable suitor. The novel is set against the backdrop of massive Irish depopulation, and provides an interesting commentary on poverty in Ireland, and the tide of emigration that swept across the country towards the beginning of the 19th century.

Text on first two pages, third page blank, fourth page with address, remnant of wax seal [hole in blank portion resulting from breaking the seal], and a few postal cancels. Very Good. This letter is an illuminating window on the activities of a prosperous Jamaica plantation owner in the years before Emancipation.

"30 hogsheads of Three Mile River Sugar on the Isabelle Simpson for Perth which vessel sailed from Yarmouth on the 17th ult. I hope she will have arrived safe and delivered her cargo in good order long before you receive this. . . The expenditure of manure does not as you seem to think improve the quality of sugars, but otherwise, although it tends greatly to increase the quantity. . . The slaves on the estate are healthy & the cattle recovering from the fatigues of the crop. I shall be obliged to dispose of from 12 to 14 of the oldest & that are unfit for the yoke longer to the grazier, as we have not the means of fattening them on the estate." James Colquhoun Grant [1725-1822] was a planter and attorney, originally from Scotland, who owned and lived at the Brighton estate in Westmoreland, Jamaica. He served as Solicitor to several estates in Western Jamaica, including the Three Mile River estate.

L'Italiana in Algeri, to a libretto substantially derived from Angelo Anelli's libretto for Luigi Mosca's L'italiana in Algeri, was first performed in Venice at the Teatro S Benedetto on May 22, 1813. "The opera is Rossini's first buffo masterpiece in the fully fledged two-act form. It quickly won widespread popular acclaim in Italy and it was the first Rossini opera to be produced in Germany (1816, Munich) and France (1817, Paris)... L'italiana in Algeri is a work of great richness and sophistication. Formally it is an innovative piece, drawing Rossini's experience from his single-act farse into a larger context. It is also, despite being written at speed, notably free from any kind of self-borrowing. The numbers that were farmed out to another composer, gracious and decorous in an 18th-century style, … [Click Below for Full Description]

"GEZICHT OP ANTWERPEN AAN DE VOORAVOND VAN DE INDUSTRI?LE REVOLUTIE Antwerpen gezien vanaf de Linkeroever ""Vue d'Anvers - Prise de la tete de Flandre"", lithografie uitgegeven te Parijs ca. 1820, in de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 35,4 x 54,6 cm. De Industri?le Revolutie in de 19de eeuw bracht Antwerpen een enorme uitbreiding van het handelsvervoer en de stad groeide uit tot een wereldhaven. Stoomkracht voerde de vaarsnelheid van schepen op en de nieuwe werelddelen zorgden nu voor de bevoorrading van grondstoffen en dienden tevens als afzetmarkt voor bewerkte goederen. De maritieme groothandel had zijn weerslag op de stad en het omliggende. Voor de ontwikkeling van de handel in de 16de eeuw moesten de oude poorten, bruggen en ruien uit de middeleeuwen verdwijnen. Zo werd ook in de 19de eeuw Antwerpen herschapen, maar op een veel grotere schaal. De stad trok werkkrachten van het land aan en de bevolking groeide. Rondom de stadskern werden allerlei straten en wijken gebouwd, zodat de stad snel uitbreidde. De oude fortengordel, de Spaanse vesten, moesten hiervoor afgebroken worden. De kunstenaar lijkt met de pastorale voorgrond, de koeien, het melkmeisje, de slapende boer, nog even de oude tijd te willen vasthouden. Op een afstand leggen de stoomschepen in de stad aan, terwijl het leven op de Linkeroever nog niet zo snel gaat. Nog even. Prijs: Euro2.250,- (incl. lijst) ?".

Clari, ou La promesse de mariage, choreographed by Louis-Jacques Milon to music by Rodolphe Kreutzer (1766-1831) was first performed at the Académie Royale de Musique on June 19, 1820.

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.

AMPÈRE, ANDRÉ-MARIE. - [FOUNDATION OF ELECTRODYNAMICS]
Paris, Crochard, 1820. 8vo. In 'Annales de Chimie et de Physique', Volume 15, pp.59-76;170-218. The entire volme 15 offered here in contemporary fine half calf with gilt spine. Five engraved plates accompanying the memoires. A fine copy. First edition of the first announcement of Ampère's discoveries on electromagnetism. Ampère first heard of Ørsted's discovery of electromagnetism on the 4th of September when Arago announced Ørsted's results to the Paris Academy of Sciences. In Ørsted's experiment a current-carrying wire is held over, and under, a compass needle - the result being that the needle is positioned at 45 degrees in respect to the wire. Ampére immediately saw that this result made no physical sense and realized that the true nature of the effect could not be observed until the force of terrestrial magnetism was somehow neutralized; what Ørsted had observed and reported on was the resultant of the force from the wire and that from the earth's magnetic field. Ampère discovered that the compass needle sets at 90 degrees to the current-carrying wire when the effect of terrestial magnetism is eliminated. He also observed that current-carrying wires which are formed as spirals act as permanent magnets, and this lead him to his theory that electricity in motion produces magnetism and that permanent magnets must contain electrical currents. And thus Ampère laid the foundation of the new field of electrodynamics.Ampère announced his theory and experimental results, for the first time, in a series of memoires read before the Paris Academy of Sciences in September and Octob … [Click Below for Full Description]
