        La caduta degli Angeli ribelli. La Chûte des Anges ribelles

      [Affreschi celebri del XIV e XV secolo] Engraving 390 x 445mm Published in Florence, 1821 The central image in Laninio‘s engraving is St Michael the Archangel and the army of angels battling the rebel demons during Satan’s uprising as described in the book of Revelations. The Holy Father watches over this scene from Heaven while the defeated demons descend towards a fiery underworld ruled by Lucifer. Lasinio bases his composition after the fresco by Spinello Aretino in the Compagnia di Sant’Angelo in Arezzo originally painted c. 1371-1410. The image is plate 26 of a 31 plate series by Lasinio each individually published by Niccolo Pagni in Florence between 1813 – 1827 based on a series of frescoes in the local area. The plates were later re-issued with a title page and text in 1841 in book form. Lasinio was a noted Florentine printmaker and collector of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries and one-time Professor of Engraving in Florence and Curator of the Camp Santo in Pisa. His early work shows the influence of Bartolozzi and in the late 1780s he pioneered early colour-printing producing several hundred colour engravings of artists based on the collection in the Uffizi. A strong impression on wove paper, faint stain to upper third of the print, a short tear to upper edge and minor edge creases. Provenance: The Berry Collection, Melbourne

        ALS to 'Mr. HobHouse' (sic).

      [1821] Probably written from Brocket Hall, undated, but almost certainly during the summer of 1821. (According to André Maurois, Caroline's 'horror of the conventional' meant dating letters 'heaven knows what day' - or not at all.) 38 lines on 3pp. 8vo.Caroline's affair with Byron lasted only a few months early in 1812, but her obsession with him lasted until her death in 1828. She had married William Lamb, son of Lord & Lady Melbourne, in 1805. Hobhouse had known Byron since their college days, and remained his closest friend; he was best man at Byron's wedding and was executor of his will, and keeper of 'incriminating' letters from the women who had been intimate with Byron. His relationship with Caroline could hardly have been a close one, despite the implications of Caroline in this letter. Hobhouse had talked Byron out of eloping with Caroline in 1812, and went to see her on Byron's behalf after the publication of Glenarvon in 1816. In 1819 Caroline campaigned strongly for her brother-in-law George Lamb against Hobhouse in the Westminster election (though Hobhouse was returned to Parliament the following year). Hobhouse held a restraining hand over possible publication of her 'journal' and Byron's letters to her by 'counter-blackmailing' Caroline with similar threats about her own letters which were in his possession. The letter offered here appears to be written at the beginning of what Doris Langley Moore describes as 'Caroline's degringolade' which accelerated after Byron's death in 1824: she surrounded herself with mementoes of him 'talking about him by the hour, far from truthfully ...'.'I did yr commission but as I came away here immediately after it may perhaps have appeared to you that I neglected it - I shall apply again on my return to Town if it is not sent to yr sister (my daughter) ...' What the commission could be is a mystery, more so because of Caroline's reference to 'yr sister', (who could be Joanna, Hobhouse's half sister) but certainly not Caroline's daughter - she had none. 'pray send me the lines Ld Byron wrote to Mr. Moore upon his going away in the Boat. Col Comad (?) & a number of people have them they are therefore not sacred and I wish for them but only like to ask you -'. This request refers to one of several poems sent to Moore by Byron but not published until later - possibly 'My boat is on the shore' 1816. 'I hear the greatest praise of the Tragedy - will he be annoyed at its having been acted.' This refers to Elliston's unauthorised production in 1821 of Marino Faliero at Drury Lane where Caroline's brother-in-law George was on the Committee. Byron was indeed annoyed, but at the same time disappointed by the adaptation's lack of success. 'pray burn my letter and do not shew it to any one. I am come here to remain (in) this delightful weather quiet and happy - which I do not think really can be the fate of any one in that Blessed city you represent - come and see me some day & believe me most truly yr friend Caroline Lamb' As a footnote, Caroline concludes with further ingratiation, reporting that'William praisd yr speaking more than once ... you know he differs in politics - therefore I think you will be pleased to hear the praises of an opponent'. Before Byron's death in 1824, Caroline 'the tireless traitor' continually attempted to re-establish contact with him - 'any sort of contact, benign or malevolent'. Clearly, despite all that Hobhouse had done to protect his friend from Caroline, she hoped that he could still be a go-between. It was not to be. After Byron's death, Caroline became 'giddier and wilder always muddled either with Brandy or Laudanum'.

        An essay on the production of wealth; with an appendix, in which the principles of political economy are applied to the actual circumstances of this country.

      London: Longman Hurst Rees Orme and Brown 1821 - 8vo., xvi + 430pp., title-page lightly soiled and with faint show-through of an old library stamp on verso, another old inkstamp at foot of final leaf, in a fine recent binding of old-style sprinkled half calf gilt with raised bands and morocco gilt-lettered spine label. A handsome copy. First edition. Goldsmiths 23151. Kress C.795. Sraffa 5914. Mattioli 3642. Not in Einaudi. Mark Blaug (Great Economists before Keynes>) considered this to be 'full of cogent comments on value, rent, profits and Say's law of markets'. [p.252]. J.R. McCulloch (1845) thought it to be 'well-written, ingenious, and generally sound'. Although damned by Palgrave ('as a rule are devoid of permanent merit'), III, p.550, modern economic historians have been kinder, suggesting that Torrens has indeed made valuable contributions to political economy. Spiegel [The Growth of Economic Thought,> p.347], says this: 'Torrens's theory of value contains both a critique, one of the earliest, of Ricardo's labor theory of value, and as a positive contribution a value theory of his own. He denied the validity of the labour theory value in a multifactor economy and, as Lauderdale had done before and as Bailey was to do again shortly, refused to participate in the search of an invariable measure of value. To him, value is a more relation between goods, not between the quantities of labor embodied in them but between the quantities of capital, including the outlay for wages, invested in their production. If competition equates the rates of profit throughout the economy, then, so Torrens argued, goods must exchange in proportion to the capital invested in them, with an adjustment to take account of the different durability of capital'.

        VOYAGE EN AMERIQUE, EN ITALIE, EN SICILE ET EN EGYPTE, PENDANT LES ANNEES 1816, 1817, 1818, ET 1819. [with:] RECUEIL DES CARTES ET DES VUES DU VOYAGE EN AMERIQUE EN ITALIE EN SICILE ET EN EGYPTE FAIT PENDANT LES ANNEES 1816, 1817, 1818 ET 1819

      Paris: Chez Delaunay...et Chez Belon, 1821. Two octavo text volumes plus oblong quarto atlas. Text: 466,[1]; viii,448,[1]pp. Atlas: Fifty-nine lithographic plates including a lithographic titlepage, a folding map of the United States, and a folding map of Egypt. Half title in each text volume. Contemporary half calf and paper-covered boards, gilt leather labels. French bookseller's ticket on rear pastedown of first volume. Minor foxing and toning to text, occasional marginal foxing to Atlas plates. Very good. From the library of Eugene de Froberville, with his library stamp on each titlepage. The very rare atlas and the text of Montule's VOYAGE EN AMERIQUE... which describes his travels in North America and the Caribbean, and also in Italy, and Egypt in the late 1810s. The atlas contains many American views, and though it was intended to accompany the author's text, it was also issued separately and is not often found with the text volumes. The wonderful lithographic plates depict scenes from Montule's travels in North America, and were made from the author's own drawings. This atlas is not mentioned by Monaghan, Sabin gives the wrong number of plates, and Clark describes it as one of Montule's "other" works, adding that it is "now quite rare." The attractive plates depict New York harbor, the mastodon skeleton at the Philadelphia museum, "Encounter with a Rattle Snake" near the Ohio River, the port of St. Domingo, Niagara Falls, and a view of St. Thomas. Other plates include a view of the Philadelphia hospital, Quaker costumes, "Costume des Negresses de St. Thomas," a country estate in Kingston (Jamaica), a church in New Orleans, "Sauvages du Mississippi," and several other views, mostly of Italian and North African scenery. The folding map shows the United States, including the Missouri and Northwest territories, as well as parts of the Caribbean. "The account is significant because it relates Montule's experiences during his journey up the Mississippi on board the Vesuvius, which is said to have been the third steamboat to ply the waters of the Mississippi. The boat and its navigation are described in detail. Another distinguishing feature of the narrative is the information it contains about Frenchmen in the United States, especially Napoleonic refugees....He seemed to enjoy himself, and his remarks are generally good natured" - Clark. A rare, significant, and early visual tour of the United States. HOWES M750, "b." SABIN 50230. CLARK II:47. LANE, IMPRESSIONS OF NIAGARA 55,56. MONAGHAN 1085 (text only). BEINECKE LESSER ANTILLES COLLECTION 698. LANDE S1620. RAGATZ, p.230.

        [Watercolour with flowers and fruits on vellum, signed].[Paris, ca. 1840]. (43.5 x 35 cm). With peaches, raspberries and blue flax. Framed.

      Cf. Hardouin-Fugier, The Pupils of Redouté, p. 39. Delicate watercolour drawing by Claire Delarue (1821-1906), a pupil of Pierre-Joseph Redouté. Redouté had a class of talented upper-class female pupils, among them Queen Hortense, the wife of Louis Napoleon. They specialized in gouaches of flowers and fruits on vellum in the same manner as Redouté, but signed their works mostly with their first names only. In her work on Redouté, E. Hardouin-Fugier describes the master and his pupils, one of them named Claire Delarue. Although not much is known about her, and no other works by her have been traced, she was a gifted artist, painting every detail with refinement, using subtle colours, with the result near tangibility.In fine condition.

        An historical account of the Colony of New South Wales and its dependent settlements; in illustration of twelve views, engraved by W. Preston, a convict; from drawings taken on the spot by Captain Wallis, of the Forty-Sixth Regiment. To which is subjoined an accurate map of Port Macquarie, and the newly discovered River Hastings, by J. Oxley, Esq. Surveyor General to the Territory.

      One of Australia's finest early plate books, coloured by a skilled hand to striking effect. London : R. Ackermann, 1821. Folio, half crushed morocco over marbled boards, spine lettered in gilt, lacking the half-title, pp [iv] (with the "Extract from the Sidney Gazette"); 42, followed by 12 engraved plates of views (six are double page) and a final plate of Oxley's map of Port Macquarie; text leaves very good, marginal damp stains to most plate leaves (as usual), all the engravings with fine hand-colouring in period style. The second issue, with the additional leaf quoting Macquarie's praise of Wallis, a feature not present in the earlier issue. 'Wallis's book has a most important position in a collection of Australian plate books. It is the first book of general landscape views of early New South Wales, representing the first great celebration of the progress of the colony made under the civilising rule of Governor Macquarie and, indeed, of Wallis himself. It is also the first plate book, properly so called, to consist entirely of plates engraved in the colony by a colonial engraver ... Wallis's book of views should be in every serious collection of Australian plate books' (Wantrup). The Mitchell Library's well-publicised purchase of the original Wallis album of watercolours in 2011 has solved the riddle of artistic authorship of the original drawings from which the engravings were made. Contrary to the claim Wallis made on the title page - that the drawings were his - the inscriptions in the Wallis album of watercolours prove that the original artworks were created by Australia's most famous convict artist, Joseph Lycett. Ferguson, 842; Wantrup, 217b; Butler, Printed Images, pp 50-59.

        Autograph letter signed ("G Flaubert) to "Mon cher ami," most likely the distinguished Russian author Ivan Turgenev

      Flaubert (1821-1880) and Turgenev (1818-1883) were close friends. Flaubert, author of Madame Bovary, was known for his meticulous attention to style and aesthetics; Turgenev's novel, Fathers and Sons, is considered to be one of the most important works of Russian fiction. Pauline Viardot (1821-1910), was a noted mezzo-soprano and composer with whom Turgenev fell in love in 1843. He lived in close proximity to Viardot and her family for the rest of his life, and bequeathed his papers to her upon his death.. One-page. Octavo. Croisset, Wednesday March 17, [?1869]. In black ink on blue-gray paper. Flaubert reminds his "dear friend" of a promise to meet him in Paris the week after Easter. With round blindstamp to upper portion "Collection [Pauline] Viardot." Slightly worn; minor browning to edges; several very small edge tears; small ink stain to blank right margin; small ink blot to one word; autograph correction to one word; small tape repair to central fold at verso; creased at folds and slightly overall.

        Watercolour with flowers and fruits on vellum, signed].[Paris, ca. 1840]. (43.5 x 35 cm). With peaches, raspberries and blue flax. Framed.

      - Cf. Hardouin-Fugier, The Pupils of Redouté, p. 39. Delicate watercolour drawing by Claire Delarue (1821-1906), a pupil of Pierre-Joseph Redouté. Redouté had a class of talented upper-class female pupils, among them Queen Hortense, the wife of Louis Napoleon. They specialized in gouaches of flowers and fruits on vellum in the same manner as Redouté, but signed their works mostly with their first names only. In her work on Redouté, E. Hardouin-Fugier describes the master and his pupils, one of them named Claire Delarue. Although not much is known about her, and no other works by her have been traced, she was a gifted artist, painting every detail with refinement, using subtle colours, with the result near tangibility.In fine condition.

        3 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Zus. 7 S., 8. Jean-Baptiste Boussingault, Sohn eines Kaufmanns, ging nach dem Studium als Bergbauingenieur 1821 im Auftrag einer englischen Firma nach Südamerika. Hier beschäftigte er sich vorrangig mit geologischen Untersuchungen. Auf Empfehlung Alexander von Humboldts unternahm er ausgedehnte Forschungsreisen in Südamerika und erwarb sich hohes wissenschaftliches Ansehen. Sein Versuch, 1831 den Chimborazo zu besteigen, scheiterte jedoch. 1832 kehrte er nach Frankreich zurück. 1834 wurde er Professor für Chemie in Lyon, 1839 erhielt er einen Lehrstuhl für landwirtschaftliche und analytische Chemie am Konservatorium in Paris. Bereits 1836 hatte Boussingault ein Landgut in Pechelbronn/Elsass gekauft und dort eine landwirtschaftliche Versuchsstation eingerichtet. Hier beschäftigte er sich mit Problemen der Tierernährung und der Photosynthese, vor allem aber mit Fragen der Bodenfruchtbarkeit, der Fruchtfolge und der Düngung. Sein besonderes Interesse galt dabei der Stickstoffernährung der Pflanzen. 1837 führte Boussingault Gefäßversuche mit Leguminosen durch. Ohne zusätzliche Stickstoffdüngung konnte er dabei in der geernteten Pflanzenmasse hohe Stickstoffgewinne nachweisen. Er folgerte daraus, dass die Pflanzen während ihres Wachstums Stickstoff aus der Luft aufnehmen. Obgleich er aufgrund von Ergebnissen anderer Experimente später von dieser Schlussfolgerung wieder abrückte, waren seine Versuche aus dem Jahre 1837 die Geburtsstunde der Idee von einer biologischen Fixierung elementaren Luftstickstoffs durch die Pflanzen. Erst 1886 konnte Hermann Hellriegel die Richtigkeit dieser Idee überzeugend nachweisen. Boussingault war aber nicht nur ein herausragender Chemiker, sondern auch ein praxiserfahrener Landwirt, der sein Gut nach wissenschaftlichen Grundsätzen bewirtschaftete. Mit seinem Buch Économie rurale (2 Bände, Paris 1844 und 1845), das in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt wurde auch eine deutschsprachige Ausgabe ist erschienen hat er die Entwicklung der Pflanzenernährung, der Bodenkunde und des Pflanzenbaus zu eigenständigen Agrardisziplinen nachhaltig beeinflusst. 1848 wurde Boussingault als gemäßigter Republikaner in die Nationalversammlung gewählt und drei Jahre später aufgrund seines politischen Engagement aus dem Lehrdienst entlassen. 1878 wurde ihm für seine Verdienste um die Wissenschaft die Copley Medal verliehen, außerdem wurde der Mondkrater Boussingault nach ihm benannt (Wikipedia). - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. -

        2 Running Horses

      Printed in the lithographic studio of Delpech, Paris 1821 - This mid 19th century black and white lithograph after a drawing by Carle Vernet depicts 2 running horses. Printed by Delpech, from Divers Croquis de Chevaux. Measures approximately 16" x 22 1/2". Antoine Charles Vernet, also known as Carle, was the son and pupil of the marine painter, Claude Joseph Vernet. From an early age he showed a tremendous aptitude for drawing and in 1782 was successful in winning the coveted Prix de Rome. Under the Empire, Vernet was awarded the Legion of Honor for his drawings of the Italian campaign. However, he is most noted as a painter and lithographer of horses, a subject to which he was devoted during the years of the Restoration. His work was so admired that Louis XVIII conferred the order of St. Michael upon him. At the beginning of the nineteenth century, horses were an invaluable aspect of everyday life. They provided transportation and sporting entertainment and thus, their breeding was of great importance. Artists celebrated the beauty and agility of the thoroughbred horse, as can be seen in Vernet¿s accomplished lithographs. Indeed, his equestrian passion was such that he himself was an avid horseman and just days before his death, at the age of seventy-eight, was seen racing as if he was a spry young man.

A military man, he had fought throughout the American Revolution, the Peninsular Wars and was present at the Battle of Waterloo. During his tenure in Canada he came into conflict with Louis Joseph Papineau and the French -Canadian majority in the Assembly. On leaving Canada, Dalhousie was appointed commander-in-chief in India. Very interesting pre-Confederation ephemera which leads one to suspect that good wine was a scarcity in the colonies!!
