NODIER (Charles)-TAYLOR (J.)- DE CAILLEUX (Alph.)
Paris, Didot, 1820-1825-1878. Trois volumes grand in-folio, illustrés de 409 planches en tout. Deux premiers tomes: 232 planches hors-texte, la plupart sur Chine appliqué et nombreuses vignettes lithographiées et dessinées par Fragonard, Villeneuve, Léger, Vauzelle, Athalin, Isabey, H.Vernet (rousseurs). Troisième tome: 177 planches montées sur onglet sur la Basse-Normandie, gravées par Cambon, Cicéri, Lemaître, Sagot, Verier, etc.... (rares rousseurs). Demi-maroquin à longs grains bleu-marine, dos à larges nerfs orné, charnières légèrement frottées. Reliure d'époque pour les deux premiers volumes. Reliure pastiche parfaitement réalisée pour le rarissime dernier volume, dans l'esprit romantique des deux autres, hauteur identique. Bel exemplaire à grandes marges, (malgré des rousseurs) bien complet du dernier volume, très rare, car il n'a été tiré qu'à 100 exemplaires et qui n'est paru qu'en 1878. En effet, le Baron Taylor n'a pu admirer ses planches que peu de temps avant sa mort. L'avènement des chemins de fer et celui de la pierre lithographique ont permis l'essor des recueils de paysages romantiques dont "Les Voyages" du Baron Taylor sont à la fois l'ancêtre et le sommet du genre. Les planches sont des estampes originales, tirées hors-texte, dessinées par les plus grands artistes du moment. Inventée par Senefelder en 1796, la lithographie fut introduite à Paris en 1816 sous l'impulsion de Godefroy Engelmann. Taylor fit appel à ce dernier pour son ouvrage. Vicaire, Frère.

Dolby's Parliamentary Register
London: T Dolby, 1820. In his attempt to deprive his estranged wife of her title, the newly crowned George IV unwittingly turned her into a focus for anti-government and anti-monachical sentiment. The trial of the presumptive Queen before the House of Lords became the arena in which this political battle was fought. Among other things, the trial led to the birth of so-called 'tabloid' coverage of the monarchy, and as such was a watershed moment for the relationship between the monarchy and an increasingly powerful free British press. For example, it was alleged that Caroline employed exotic male dancers: and the dance was even demonstrated in court. In response, Caroline's attorney, Lord Brougham, threatened to reveal details of the King's private life that he felt would damage the monarchy. The first volume contains the prosecution, the second the defence. This parliamentary report was originally supressed, resulting in copies of this first issue being scarce. The pagination carries from the Dolby Parliamentary Register. The relevant sections have essentially been excised and bound into a discrete work. Volume two is lacking a title page, and is missing pages 1638-1671, with pages 827-858 from volume one apparently bound in instead by mistake. While the pagination is occasionally irregular, this appears to be the only loss. CONDITION In half calf with marbled boards. Externally sound, with some rubbing to the edges and spines. Internally, firmly bound. There is some light marking to the boards. Internally a little age toned with some light foxing here and there. The mispla … [Click Below for Full Description]

HOLFORD, Margaret.
Printed for Rodwell & Martin. 1820 Half titles vols II & III, not in vol. I, as issued. Uncut in orig. pink boards; expertly rebacked with appropriate white paper spines, vols I & II retaining orig. repaired paper spine labels, vol. III with replacement facsimile label. Each vol. with the signature of Eliza Giffard, Nerquis Flintshire, on leading pastedown, and further inscribed by her on titlepage. Vol. I also inscribed 'From the author'. A very nice copy.Summers p.67. Copac lists four copies in the UK: BL, Cambridge, Bristol & Leeds; OCLC adds Oxford. This is a typically melodramatic gothic novel, set in late mediaeval Germany and peopled with a cast of enigmatic characters, among them the 'very beautiful' Lady Louisa, the 'sly looking Cardinal Zoraschi', a kidnapped nun, a scheming monk, and 'a dwarfish ideot [sic] boy' named Rolf. This was Holford's first novel, following several volumes of poetry she had thus far presented to the English reading public. The work is intriguing for its thinly-disguised portrayal of Lord Byron in the titular figure of Baron Warbeck. Holford was friendly with Robert Southey and Joanna Baillie (to whom the work is dedicated), and evidently shared their contempt for Lord Byron, portraying the worst of him in the novel's chief antagonist. Warbeck is aloof, flamboyant, compulsive and reckless, prone to selfishness and self-indulgence; he is bullying, promiscuous, spiteful, atheistic, and hedonistic; he subjects his wife to humiliation and ridicule; he is unfaithf … [Click Below for Full Description]

GORDON, James Bentley (1750-1819)
Dublin: Printed by John Jones, 1820. Quarto. (11 1/4 x 9 inches). civ, x, [2], 305, [1]pp. Engraved frontispiece portrait. Errata slip. Uncut. Later blue morocco backed boards.Large paper copy of a very rare work, with much on the northwest coast of America.The author, a graduate of Trinity College, Dublin, took holy orders and in 1776 became tutor to the sons of Lord Courtown. In 1779 he undertook the management of a boarding-school at Marlfield in Wexford, and began writing on geography and history.His first published work appeared in 1790, titled Terraquea, or a New System of Geography and Modern History. Upon his death in 1819, numerous manuscripts on the geography and history of regions around the world were found, which had been intended as a continuation on that work. Gordon's friends evidently arranged for the present work on America, one of the found manuscripts, to be privately published for the benefit of his orphan daughters.The work includes sections on Mexico, California, the Northwest Coast, Greenland, Spitzbergen, Canada, Hudsons Bay, Labrador, Nova Scotia, Virginia [but which is a general section the U.S.], Bahamas, Bermudas, Sable Island, Islands of St. Lawrence, Newfoundland, and Belleisle. "A little known work ... The author's son was killed at the attack by the British on Fort Sandusky during the War of 1812" (Eberstadt)Sabin notes the existence of large paper copies, as here. The work is rare, and not found in many of the celebrated collections of Americana.

A massive and amazingly illustrated contribution to ornithology by the greatest Dutch ornithologist, Coenraad Jacob Temminck (1778-1858), with some help by one of Europe's foremost private collectors of birds, the botanist, ornithologist, politician and heritage guard, Baron Guillaume Michel Jérôme Meiffren Laugier (1772-1843). This may be regarded as Temminck's magnum opus in size, in scope and in beauty. The fine illustrations are by the best natural history artists of the period, Jean Gabriel Prêtre (1768-1849) and Nicolas Huet le Jeune (1770-1830). Especially the larger illustrations by Prêtre are among the best natural history illustrations ever made. The plates have about 800 figures of birds representing 661 species. The present copy is almost twice as large as the usual 4to.-edition, the colouring being much better. Large-paper copies of the present work seem to be much rarer than the large-paper edition of Buffon's Planches Enluminées. The work is a suppleme … [Click Below for Full Description]

s.l.n.d. (c.1820). MANUSCRIT in-4 oblong. 37ff. et 20ff.blancs (avec des portées vides). Plein maroquin bleu nuit, dos lisse orné, roulette dorée autour des plats, inscription en lettres dorées sur le plat supérieur: "Mme. la Comtesse Dorsenne" (reliure de l'époque, un peu restaurée, gardes partiellement renouvelées). Précieux manuscrit musical provenant de la bibliothèque de la Comtesse d'Orsenne, épouse de l'un des généraux les plus connus de Napoléon. Cette méthode de lyre ne concerne pas l'instrument bien connu de l'Antiquité Grecque, fameux attribut d'Hermès, mais plutôt un spectaculaire modèle de guitare à six cordes appelé guitare-lyre, inventée à la faveur du goût néo-classique de l'Empire et qui eut son heure de gloire au début du 19e siècle. "Description de la lyre, ou guitare à six cordes", "Du manche", "Des touches", "Des divisions, ou cazes", "Dénomination des cordes", "De la main gauche", "De la main droite", "De l'arpège", "Du doigter et du pincer", "Des positions", "De la demi-position", "Des barres", "de la gamme", "Exercices en batterie ou arpèges dans les tons usités", "Du son porté", "De la chûte", "De la plainte", "De la fusée et de la tirade", etc. A la suite de la méthode proprement dite, se trouvent de nombreux morceaux destinés à être joués au moyen de l'instrument; il s'agit, pour la plupart, de romances de compositeurs en vogue à cette époque: Boieldieu, Dalayrac, Plantade, etc. Il n'existe pas, à notre connaissance, de méthode imprimée spécifiquement pour l'apprentissage de la guitare-lyre et le présent manuscrit constitue une indéniable rareté d … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dolby's Parliamentary Register
London: T Dolby, 1820. In his attempt to deprive his estranged wife of her title, the newly crowned George IV unwittingly turned her into a focus for anti-government and anti-monachical sentiment. The trial of the presumptive Queen before the House of Lords became the arena in which this political battle was fought. Among other things, the trial led to the birth of so-called 'tabloid' coverage of the monarchy, and as such was a watershed moment for the relationship between the monarchy and an increasingly powerful free British press. For example, it was alleged that Caroline employed exotic male dancers: and the dance was even demonstrated in court. In response, Caroline's attorney, Lord Brougham, threatened to reveal details of the King's private life that he felt would damage the monarchy. The first volume contains the prosecution, the second the defence. This parliamentary report was originally supressed, resulting in copies of this first issue being scarce. The pagination carries from the Dolby Parliamentary Register. The relevant sections have essentially been excised and bound into a discrete work. Volume two is lacking a title page, and is missing pages 1638-1671, with pages 827-858 from volume one apparently bound in instead by mistake. While the pagination is occasionally irregular, this appears to be the only loss. CONDITION In half calf with marbled boards. Externally sound, with some rubbing to the edges and spines. Internally, firmly bound. There is some light marking to the boards. Internally a little age toned with some light foxing here and there. The mispla … [Click Below for Full Description]

Marseilles: chez Antoine Richard, 1820-21. Marseilles: chez Antoine Richard. Very Good. 1820-21. First Edition; First Printing. Hardcover. 3 vols. pages; Three volumes bound in contemporary half calf over marbled paper-covered boards with tiny vellum tips reinforcing the corners, flat spines -- each volume has a pair of green leather labels lettered in gilt. These three volumes once belonged to Dr. Arpad Plesch, with the great collector's impressive red leather book-label tooled and lettered in gilt mounted to the front paste-down of the first volume. The spine of the first volume has a small piece missing along the top edge and has recieved a minor repair, there is a surface scrape along the spine of the third volume, which is not particularly noticeable, and there is moderate worming to the blank margins (only) of 57 leaves towards the end of the volume. In general, this copy is handsome and sound. While these volumes would be of considerable interest as a representation of the state of agriculture in the south of France in 1820, the material at the heart of the third volume represents an important and early treatise on all aspects of the variety and cultivation of grapes, and winemaking. The text goes into significant detail -- how to build, support and work vineyards, the varieties of grapes and their suitability to the terrain and climate, diseases and problems ith grapes, wine bottles, corks, basements, cellars, tanks, vinegars, distillation and fortification, etc. Little is known about the author, J.-S.

Michela de VITO (Attiva a Napoli nei primi decenni del XIX secolo)
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

John William 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 humerous 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". Issac 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 iss … [Click Below for Full Description]
