        L'art de dessiner....Augmente de plusieurs figures d'apres l'antique, avec leurs mesures et proportions; d?une description des os et des muscles du corps humaine....

      Chez Jean, Marchand d'Estampes 1821 With 2 title pages, 1 engraved allegorical, and the other letterpress. With 33 engraved plates. Contemporary morocco - backed marbled boards; light offsetting, but an excellent copy from the library of A. Kuhnholtz with his signed bookplate by J. Dupont. Later edition. Cousin's treatise on anatomy contains many wonderful plates illustrating the proportions of different aspects of the body. It includes the head, face, limbs, torso and full figures of males, females and children. All muscles are noted and some of the plates are depicted in perspective. Cousin (c.1522 - 94), with his father (1490 - 1560), were French painters and engravers of the Renaissance. They were famous for their work in stained glass and tapestry designs. This work, now attributed to the younger Cousin, was first printed in 1560. "His considerable reputation as a designer of woodcuts for the Paris printers has been developed chiefly by comparison of details from this volume" (see Mortimer, French, I, 157 & 158, who notes that this work is insufficiently documented).

        Lake of Stymphalos "Lake of Stymphalos in Arcadia

      Greece: London Rodwell & Martin. 1821. Aquatint view of the Lake of Stymphalos from the Deluxe edition of Dodwell's "Views in Greece". Original hand colour, mounted on card with title caption to verso The view shows the small lake upon whose shores can be seen vestiges of the ancient city of Stymphalos, once one of the largest towns in Arkadia, founded by Elatos son of Arkas. Dodwell explains that the lake is fed by two streams or springs, of which the Fountain of Stymphalos at the foot of Mount Cyllene is the most noted. The waters escape from the lake by means of a katabothra or subterranean passages; the underground river emerging at Argos where it is named Erasines, finally meeting the Argolic gulf through the marshes of Lerna. Dodwell then mentions that the lake was the site of one of the labours of Hercules the slaying of the man-eating Stymphalian birds, and comments that he obviously did his work well as there are now only ducks and common wild fowl at the lake. Bright and clean. Edward Dodwell (1767 1832) was an Irish painter, traveller, antiquary and a writer on archaeology. Educated at Trinity College Cambridge. Dodwell travelled to Greece in 1801 in company with Sir William Gell touring the Ionian Islands and the Troad, In 1805-6 when he was allowed leave of absence to travel by the government of Bonaparte, in whose hands he was a prisoner, he returned to Greece accompanied by the Italian artist Simone Pomardi, touring mainland Greece and the Ionian Islands meeting again with Sir William Gell towards the end of the tour. During this second tour he and Pomardi produced around 1000 drawings which would become the basis for A Classical and Topographical Tour through Greece during the years 1801, 1805 and 1806 published in 1819, the work was dedicated to Le Chevalier who had arranged his parole. "The Dodwell-Pomardi practice was to draw freehand on the spot if the landscape or ruin was condensed into a particular feature rather than an extensive view, often in pen in grey or sepia ink and wash if by Pomardi, and more roughly in pencil if by Dodwell; much more deliberate drawing followed, with the assistance of the camera obscura if a more detailed and complex composition was required ?" without it, Pomardi and Dodwell would have produced far fewer illustrations. The finished drawings were developed later, in Italy, from a compilation of outlines, sketches and precise notes; on these, both men worked together in a concerted campaign to reach a definitive publishable stage, probably with the assistance of other artists," [ Brian Sewell ;"In Search of Classical Greece: Travel Drawings of Edward Dodwell And Simone Pomardi 1805-1806," British Museum - exhibition review] The Classical Tour is illustrated with lithographs of the drawings as the intended aquatint illustrations proved too expensive to produce. Thirty aquatint plates were chosen to be issued separately as Views in Greece published in 1821. Dodwell settled in Italy after his return, living chiefly in Naples and Rome. He had amassed a large collection of ancient artifacts including the well-known Dodwell Vase with a representation of a boar-hunt; at his death the collection consisted of over 1000 pieces and even more mineral specimens; the collection of vases is now in the possession of the Munich Glyptothek He died in Rome from the effects of an illness contracted in 1830 during a visit of exploration to the Sabine Mountains. His last work, "Views and Descriptions of Cyclopian or Pelasgic Remains in Italy and Greece", was published posthumously" in 1834. " Dodwell and Pomardi, like many travellers, chose to go beyond the established Mediterranean regions of the Grand Tour. The understanding these travellers brought to the archaeological remains of ancient Greece encouraged the taste among British Hellenists for Greek architecture. This gave new vigour to the Greek Revival, already begun in the middle of the 18th century by the expeditions of the Society of Dilettanti. Hellenism, the love of ancient Greece, was to promote a new movement of Philhellenism, a sympathy for modern Greek people and a desire to realise the dream, as Byron put it, "that Greece might still be free." [Catalogue British Museum "In Search of Classical Greece: Travel Drawings of Edward Dodwell And Simone Pomardi 1805-1806,"] Simone Pomardi 1757-1830 Little is known of him ?" nothing between records of his birth in 1757 and his settling in an artists' neighbourhood in Rome in 1783, nothing of his training and the influences to which he may have been subject, and from a working life of more than half a century, fewer than 50 works independent of Dodwell are known, their subjects mostly the antiquities of Rome. He would publish his own work about the travel with Dodwell "Viaggio nella Grecia fatto negli anni 1804, 1805 e 1806 "published in Rome in 1820 by Vincenzo Poggioli often using the same illustrations.

      Wien: in Comission bey Cappi und Diabelli [PN C. et D. No. 768]. [1821]. Oblong folio. Sewn into plain modern wrappers with manuscript titling in green ink to upper: "Franz Schubert opus 3." 1f. (title), 3-11, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved. Printed metronome markings at head of all four songs: "Maelzels Metronom ([eighth note]=120.)" for "Schäfers Klagelied"; "([quarter note]=72.)" for Meeres=Stille" (as spelled in the caption title); "([quarter note]=69)" for "Heidenröslein"; "(eighth note=63)" for "Jägers Abendlied." Manuscript control signature "Sch 321.," possibly autograph, to lower right corner of final blank page. Two former owner's signatures in ink to lower right corner of title: "Glaunach" and "Jos[ephine] Troll;" minor pencil markings to lower corners of p. 4. Some soiling; occasional small stains; paper reinforcement to spine; considerable loss to title and final leaf including to some music; some bleeding to control signature and number to verso of final leaf; extensive professional paper repairs throughout. . First Edition. Deutsch pp. 86, 142, 163, and 221. Deutsch: Schuberts Goethe-Lieder, 3b. Hoboken 13, 17. Heck 24. The actual order of the four songs is not the same as on the title page: "Meeres=Stille" (D216) is in the second position, followed by "Heidenröslein" (D257) and "Jägers Abendlied" (D368). All four poems are by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832). Re "Schmp" ("Schubert manu propria = Schubert by my own hand" The question whether of not Schubert himself signed the copies of his early editions (opp. 1-7, 12-14, and 96) has been hotly debated. Otto Erich Deutsch and Georg Kinsky took the authenticity of these signatures for granted, but Ernst Hilmar ("Anmerkungen zu Franz Schuberts Erstdrucken" in Florilegium musicologicum: Hellmut Federhofer zum 75. Geburtstag, ed. Christoph-Hellmut Mahling, pp. 145-54) challenged this view and posited that all such signatures are in different hands. While his verdict on the signatures to Schubert's opp. 12-14 has been generally accepted, other scholars continue to defend their authenticity. "Schäfers Klagelied" was the first of Schubert's songs to receive a public performance, on February 28, 1819.

        Carte De L' Amerique Septentrionale...

      Paris: 1821. Double page map (24" x 18"), outlined in color of North America. Some foxing and darkening at centerfold and margins, margins ample, but are a little rough on the right side; otherwise very good. Tardieu (1788-1841) was an important French cartographer, and produced to highly respected maps of America. This is a very interesting and attractive map of North America, which continues to show the remnants of French and Spanish areas in what is now Missouri and Arkansas. The map also shows Mexico in control of the Southwest and California. Another interesting aspect of this map is its highlighting of Indian tribes.

        Execution of Stephen Merrill Clark, Which Took Place on Winter Island.

      1821 - An Event That Advanced a Successful Movement to Reduce the Number of Capital Crimes in Massachusetts [Broadside]. [Execution]. [Salem, Massachusetts]. Execution of Stephen Merrill Clark, Which Took Place on Winter Island, Salem, On Thursday, May 10, 1821. Salem, MA?: S.n., 1821. 17-3/4" x 11" broadside. Text in four columns enclosed by black rules, small woodcut of a coffin below headline, untrimmed edges. Light browning, fold lines, a few unobtrusive repairs, a few tiny dampspots. A rare item * In 1820 Clark burned down a barn. There was no loss of life, but he was tried for a capital crime, found guilty and sentenced to death. The jury recommended commutation to no avail. He was sixteen years of age when he committed the crime, seventeen when executed. His case helped to advance a successful movement to reduce the number of capital crimes. By 1852 only murder remained as a capital offense. OCLC locates 4 copies (at Yale Law School, the New-York Historical Society, the Massachusetts Historical Society and the Vermont Historical Society). We located another copy at the American Antiquarian Society. Cohen lists this item but notes that he didn't handle a copy; his entry based on a dealer's catalogue. Cohen also notes another broadside, again unseen, a 16-page pamphlet at Harvard Law School, and a 63-page report of the trial, at Yale Law School. Curiously, there is nothing for Clark in McDade, which is surprising given the contemporary and long-term importance of the case. These omissions in McDade suggest the rarity of these four accounts.

        Auswahl vorzüglich schöner, seltener, berühmter, und sonst sehr merkwürdiger Gartenpflanzen, in getreuen Abbildungen.

      - Wien, auf Kosten des Herausgebers, 1821. 4to (238 x 190mm). 2 volumes. pp.xxiv, 148; vi, 97, with 2 engraved portrait frontispieces, one of J. Banks and one of M. Vahl, and 219 fine engraved plates. Contemporary boards. The work was issued with plain or coloured plates. The beautifully engraved plates show among others numerous exotic and bulbous plants. Leopold Trattinnick was the first curator of the botanical Court Cabinet, founded by Francis I, Emperor of Austria. He was a member of a prosperous family and had the means to publish over a period of decades expensive botanical works without regard to costs. The plates of the present work were taken from Trattinnik's never finished 'Archiv der Gewächskunde' for which he had prepared some 800 plates, but which were for the greater part not used for that work.

Fu scritto attorno al 1660 sulla scia del Machiavelli, per dare preziosi consigli al Principe (nella fattispecie Filippo IV) circa il buon governo, la politica, la diplomazia, etc. La presente versione di Carlo Luigi di Borbone, stampata la prima volta a Roma dal Poggioli nel 1816, costituisce la prima traduzione italiana. La presente è una rara edizione lucchese, con soli due esemplari censiti in SBN.

        Vellum Archery Certificate - Woodmen of Arden

      England, 1821. [Meriden, Warwickshire], 25 June 1821. Manuscript Archery Certificate on Vellum with large forest green wax seal, for membership to the Woodmen of Arden, a prestigious society of longbow archers founded in 1785. Wax seal features a leaf wreath stamped "Arden" and an arrow through its center, is in very good condition, and affixed to document with green satin ribbon. Single leaf, written recto only, measuring approximately 18 x 33 cm, signed in the original by secretary Wriothesly Digby. Slight creasing and age toning, otherwise in very good and original condition, beautifully preserved as issued to the bearer, rolled and contained in the original tin tube with lid, measuring 18 cm in length, 2,5 cm in diameter. Lovely document with scarce and in tact Arden forest wax seal. This is the membership certificate of Reverend William Gresley (1801-1876), writer and Church of England clergyman. In the left margin is a hand coloured design of two gold bands on a navy background, indicating "the mark of Revd. W. Gresley register'd in the rolls", presumably painted on his arrows. In 1845 Gresley won a Bugle. His name and pedigree appear in the "Records of the Woodmen of Arden from 1785: With Roll of Members of the Society and Other Notes Mainly Compiled from the Archives of the Forest," printed in 1885 for private circulation. The document reads as follows: "To all to whom these presents shall come greeting these are to certify that on the 25th day of June one thousand eight hundred and twenty one. Revd. William Gresley... was duly elected a Woodman of the Forest of Arden." Gresley was a prolific author, propagating his high-church principles in theological treatises and numerous works of fiction. His title, "The Forest of Arden: a tale illustrative of the English Reformation (1841)" was one of his most popular works. He was father to William Nigel Gresley, ninth Baronet of Gresley of Drakelow. The Gresleys were an ancient Norman family, descended from Nigel de Stafford, the son of Robert de Stafford, scion of one of the most powerful Norman families in England. The Woodmen of Arden, a society of archers based in the Forest of Arden in Warwickshire, was run along similar lines to the earlier archery societies of the Restoration period. Supposedly "revived" in 1785 at a meeting at the Bull's Head Inn in Meriden, the society arranged itself in different ranks with annual archery competitions on the Packington Outwoods, leased to the society by founder Heneage Finch, fourth Earl of Aylesford (1751-1812). . Very Good.

      New York 1821 - New York patriot who was a close associate of Thomas Paine. In 1809 he nursed Paine back to health while on his death bed. 2 pages (front and back), 12.75 x 8.75 inches, with an integral address leaf, New York, July 16, 1821. Written to Philadelphia publishers McCarty & Davis, proposing a new biography of Thomas Paine, the author of Common Sense, in small part: ".I have been advised by a great number of citizens, to write an abridgement of the Life of Thomas Paine, and to have an engraved likeness of him taken from a miniature painting that I own, which was taken a few years before his death, it is said to be the best that ever was taken, no man liveing (sic) knew Pain (sic) better then (sic) myself -- Cheethans Life of Paine was a scandalous work, the price two dollars!.their (sic) are thousands in this countrey (sic) that would be willing to give a dollar for a good likeness of Paine, by its self." This, of course, was the furthest thing from the truth. When Paine died, only six people attended his funeral. He alienated just about every friend he had in America to the point that he was literally disowned. When Paine died, Carver buried him in the backyard of his house where he remained until two Englishmen dug him up and gave him a proper burial in England. Provenance: The Henry E. Luhrs Collection. Stained around the edges from tape reinforcements on the back; chipping at the edges; one horizontal fold; small hole on the left side, partially obscuring two words. Good condition.

      per i Fratelli Manfredini, Pistoja - Opera completa in 23 tomi raccolti in 11 volumi, dedicata al Nobiluomo Niccolò Puccini. Cm.19,7x12,8. Pg.5772 complessive. Buone legature in piena pergamena coeva. Doppi tasselli con titoli e fregi in oro ai dorsi. L'erudito Juan Andres nacque a Planes presso Valencia nel 1740.

        Travels In Georgia, Persia, Armenia, Ancient Babylonia, &c. &c. During The Years 1817. 1818. 1819, and 1820

      London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, And Brown, 1821. First edition. leather_bound. Full modern scarlet morocco. All edges speckled sepia. 2 vols. Fine/No Dust Jacket. (XXIII) 720, 869 pages. 28 x 21.5. 88 plates, five in color, 27 folding with two portrait frontispieces and two fold-out maps, plus wood engravings in the text. Our copy collates with all ABBEY TRAVEL 359, including no half-title, or plate list in Vol. I, but listed in second volume only. Plates are identical though some difference in plate numbering and positioning -- "A Persian Lady," noted as plate 5 by Abbey is plate 4 in this copy. Errata list and two advert pages Vol. II. Media for illustrations: uncolored line and stipple engravings, line engravings, colored and uncolored aquatints. Porter left St. Petersburg in August, 1817 which took him through the Caucasus to Teheran. His account of Persia remains today an important source for the region. At Persopolis he made drawings of the monuments and transcribed a number of cuneiform inscriptions, of great interest in the history of Assyriology. He traveled further to Shiraz, Isfahan, Ecbatana (a stop on the Silk Road, and a royal residence during the Parthian age), and Baghdad, then on to Scutari following the route of Xenophon's Persian expedition with the Ten Thousand. Porter was the first in modern times to locate the mausoleum of Cyrus The Great near Shiraz. Some occasional minor plate toning; nevertheless a very fresh copy. Binding not signed, raised bands, spine panels in elaborate gilt motifs, cover border panels, corners and center gilt decorated, inner dentelles, and marbled endpapers.
