        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM THOMAS JEFFERSON TO THOMAS SULLY, EXPRESSING THANKS AND DISCUSSING A BOOK ORDER BEING SENT TO PARIS IN 1821]

      Monticello, Va, 1821. [1]p., matted and framed with a later engraved portrait of Jefferson, the whole measuring 14 3/4 x 21 1/4 inches. Previously folded. Slightly browned, but overall a fine example. A friendly letter from Thomas Jefferson to the renowned American portraitist Thomas Sully, thanking the artist for gifts recently received, and agreeing to add a special request to a forthcoming book order being sent to Paris. Sully visited Jefferson at Monticello in March 1821 for the purpose of composing a portrait commissioned by the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, established by Jefferson during his presidency. The gifts mentioned at the outset of the letter are no doubt a token of thanks for the artist's two weeks residence at Jefferson's estate. Sully apparently also requested that Jefferson seek out two books on architecture for him, the RECEUIL ET PARALLÈLE DES ÉDIFICES DE TOUT GENRE by Jean- Nicolas-Louis Durand and POMPEIANA by William Gell and John P. Gandy on the ruins and ongoing excavations at Pompeii. Jefferson here agrees to add the RECEUIL... to his forthcoming order to Paris booksellers, but informs Sully that the second title should be obtainable in the United States. The letter reads as follows: "Dear Sir, I have duly received your favor of the 5th & also the half dozen cups which you have been so kind as to have forwarded to me, for which accept my thanks. Ellen will express to you herself her obligations for what was addressed to her. I am this day writing to Paris for some books and gladly place among them the Recueil of M. Durand, which I presume was published there. for the Pompeiana I shall depend on our own bookstores. accept my sincere wishes for your happiness and success in all your undertakings and the assurance of my friendly esteem & respect." A fine Jefferson letter that touches on his book collecting habits as well as the production of a famous portrait of the third President.

        Veduta dell'Arco di Gallieno nella Via Tiburtina

      Roma 1821 - LE ANTICHITA ROMANE La serie delle vedute di Antichità Romane, composta di 101 tavole, viene realizzata con il ricavato della e vendita dei rami della Raccolta di cinquanta principali vedute di antichità tratte dai scavi fatti in Roma in questi ultimi tempi divise in 40 vedute edita nel 1817. Con quest’opera, per il numero delle tavole e per il formato prescelto, di grandi dimensioni, l’incisore vuole affermarsi come figura di primo piano nel mondo artistico romano. In quest’opera Rossini si cimenta in un diretto confronto con il suo predecessore G. B. Piranesi che costituisce un punto di riferimento per un incisore di vedute antiche, per quanto riguarda l’originalità e l’ampiezza della riproduzione. Il Rossini, oltre a sottolineare la sua influenza nella scelta del titolo e di alcune didascalie, usa frequentemente le medesime inquadrature e identici punti di vista del maestro veneziano. Altro elemento riconducibile a Piranesi è l’uso della luce e dei forti contrasti chiaroscurali. In queste tavole raggiunge una certa padronanza del mezzo tecnico che gli permette di cimentarsi in inquadrature più complesse nelle quali si nota un’organizzazione spaziale molto articolata. Nelle tavole è frequente il ricorso al taglio diagonale della veduta, consentendogli una più ampia possibilità di graduare i chiaroscuri in profondità. Tuttavia essendo l’opera composta da molte tavole presenta una certa discontinuità ed è possibile riscontrare in alcune di esse qualche incertezza nella impostazione prospettica ed alcune durezze nel segno. Rimanendo fedele alla tradizione corrente, la scelta dei soggetti operata dal Rossini non introduce nessuna novità; sono infatti rappresentati tutti i più importanti monumenti e luoghi archeologici di Roma. Elementi di novità sono sottolineati dalla registrazione puntuale dei lavori di indagine e di scavo intrapresi in quegli anni che dalla originalità delle inquadrature. Di particolare interesse da un punto di vista documentario sono le ultime quattro incisioni relative alla distruzione della Basilica di San Paolo fuori le mura, in seguito all’incendio del 15 luglio 1823. La volontà di voler animare le vedute, restituendo il monumento al suo contesto storico e la propria inadeguatezza nel campo della figura porta Rossini ad una collaborazione con Bartolomeo Pinelli, incisore romano, interprete e illustratore del costume e della vita popolare; a cui si devono le figure e i gruppi caratteristici che corredano le vedute. Pinelli in alcuni casi, riprende i motivi tratti dalle sue precedenti raccolte di Costumi pittoreschi romani. ROMAN ANTIQUITIES The series of views Antichità Romane, made of 101 plates, was realized with the proceeds of the sale of the plates used for Raccolta di cinquanta principali vedute di antichità tratte dai scavi fatti in Roma in questi ultimi tempi divided in 40 views, published in 1817. This is the work with which the artist wanted to become one of the most important artists in the Roman cultural life; we can state that if we consider the size of the work and the subject he choose. In this work Rossini tested himself with his predecessor, G. B. Piranesi, who was considered as a point of reference when it came to ancient views and originality. Rossini, was deeply influenced by Piranesi, as it can be seen in the title, the legends, the same points of views and framing. Another important element he took from Piranesi is the use of light and the contrast of chiaroscuro. In these plates Rossini reached the higher mastery of the technique, realizing also extremely particular framings and a new and complex organization of the space. In the plates quite common is the diagonal view of the subject, which gave him the possibility to elaborate more the chiaroscuro. However, since the work is made of many plates, it is quite discontinuous and some of the plates present some indecision in the perspective formulation and a little harshness in the mark. Always following the tradition of his time, Ross

        Duo pour le Piano Forté à 4 mains, composé par . No. 5.

      Bonn and Cologne, Chez N. Simrock, n.d. (1821?). - Folio (33.4 x 25.1 cm.), contemporary (Brazilian?) crimson sheep (slight wear at extremities), smooth spine gilt, covers elaborately gilt with imperial arms of Brazil gilt, initials "P.D.J." above arms on front cover, edges of covers milled gilt; marbled endleaves, text block edges sprinkled blue-green. Engraved title page. Engraved musical notation throughout. On thick paper of excellent quality. In fine condition. Contemporary cipher (of D. Pedro I, Emperor of Brazil) in ink in blank outer margin of title page. The date "1821" is noted in (later?) pencil on the second front endleaf recto. Frequent penciled notations above the notes (for fingering?). 15 pp. *** According to the list on the title page, this is the fifth in a series of duets: "Sur un air Bohémien." The other duets in the series included airs of Mozart and Rousseau, a hymn by Franz Joseph Haydn, and the "Copenhagen Waltz."Jean Théodore Latour (1766-1837), a French pianist and composer, was official pianist to the Prince Regent (later King George IV of the United Kingdom). Nikolaus Simrock began publishing music in Bonn in 1793, and is well known for being one of Beethoven?s good friends in Bonn. Simrock soon became one of the most important music publishers of the first-half of the nineteenth century, publishing Mozart?s compositions, first editions of Joseph Haydn?s work, as well as many first editions of Beethoven?s music. Simrock was also a member of the Minervalkirche Stagira in Bonn, which was a part of the Bavarian Illuminati order. Upon his death in 1832, the firm was taken over by his son Peter Joseph. This second phase of the publishing house is known for its publications of music by Robert Schumann and Felix Mendelssohn. The Simrock archives, which included numerous letters, manuscripts, and first editions of music, were destroyed in WWII; this loss is well-noted in the musicology community. See, for example, Theodore Albrecht, ed., Letters to Beethoven and other correspondence, Volume I: 1772-1812, p. 117, note. N. Simrock editions are rare. This work does not appear on the massive online database of music scores in public domain published_by N. Simrock.Provenance: "P.D.J." stands for "Princesa Dona Januária", the second daughter of D. Pedro I, Emperor of Brazil and King of Portugal as D. Pedro IV, and his first wife Maria Leopoldina, Archduchess of Austria, Empress consort of Brazil, and Queen consort of Portugal (1797-1826), daughter of the last Holy Roman Emperor Franz II (later Franz I of Austria). Dona Januária was born in Rio de Janeiro, in the Palácio de São Cristóvão, Quinta da Boa Vista, 1822. From 1835 until 1845, she held the title Princess Imperial of Brazil, as the heir presumptive of her brother the Emperor D. Pedro II. Her marriage to Prince Luigi of the Two Sicilies, Count of Aquila (brother of D. Pedro II's new wife, Empress Teresa Cristina) was celebrated on 28 April 1844 in Rio de Janeiro. Her husband was a son of King Francesco I of the Two Sicilies and his second wife the Infanta Maria Isabella of Spain. Friction developed between the Count of Aquila and D. Januária's brother, the Emperor D. Pedro II. D. Januária and Aquila were eventually permitted to leave Brazil in October 1844. In 1845, D. Januária's position as heir presumptive, and the restrictions it entailed, was lost with the birth of D. Pedro II's first child, D. Afonso, Prince Imperial of Brazil. The city of Januária in Minas Gerais was named in her honor. She died in Nice in 1901.*** Regarding the binding, cf. Brasiliana Itaú, ?Encadernação no Brasil?, especially p. 477, for a binding on a book of Rio de Janeiro, 1824, with some of the same or very similar tooling. Not located in Copac, which has two other works in this series. KVK (44 databases searched) locates only a copy at Bischöfliche Zentralbibliothek Regensburg. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Presentation Copy from Joseph Story: Amendments of the Constitution

      1821. Amendments to the Massachusetts Constitution: A Presentation Copy from Joseph Story [Massachusetts]. [Constitution]. [Story, Joseph (1779-1845)]. Amendments of the Constitution of Massachusetts, Proposed by the Convention of Delegates, Assembled at Boston, On the Third Wednesday of November, A.D. Eighteen Hundred and Twenty. With their Address to the People of this Commonwealth. Boston: Published by Order of the Convention. Russell and Gardner, Printers. 1821. First Edition. [iii], 4-32 pp. Octavo (10-1/4" x 6"). Stab-stitched pamphlet in self-wrappers, untrimmed edges. Moderate toning, minor edgewear to a few leaves, light foxing and presentation inscription to title page, final leaf signed by Convention Secretary Benjamin Pollard. $1,850. * First edition. Presented to the Essex Historical Society, this copy is inscribed in the third person "from Hon Judge Story." The great Supreme Court justice was member of the convention to amend to Massachusetts Constitution. Mel A. Topf in wrote about Story's importance at the Convention: "Story brought his prestige and leadership, together with his considerable political and legal skills, to what was for him and his allies at the convention the overriding mission: to save the Massachusetts frame of government from the democratizing forces (or from radicalism, the term Story used) that were threatening the Republic itself. It would be difficult to overemphasize the centrality of this mission to Story's theory of the judiciary. Story, along with Daniel Webster and others, led the conservative faction toward its goal of creating an alliance to protect the Massachusetts constitution from democratic extremes of the radicals, whose program was the convention's main agenda." An excellent association connecting Joseph Story to a critical event in his judicial career in Massachusetts.

First Edition which includes the often missing foretitle "Naturrecht und Staatswissenschaft im Grundrisse." "In 1821 'The Outline of the Philosophy of Right' appeared, in which his final system of a sociology of the perfectly organized state, such as an ideal Prussia might be, was laid down. He rejected the idealistic aspirations of the reformers, their vague assertions of individual freedom being, in his judgment, trifling compared with the all-important concept of government. The [Grundlinien] turns away from the apparent chaos of the democratic advocates of individual right in favour of an overwhelming sense that liberty cannot exist apart from order, and that the vital connection of all parts of the body politic is the source of all good." (PMM, p. 171).Printing and the Mind of Man, 283 Contemporary pasteboards and spine. Author and title printed faded gold on spine. Corers bumped and worn.

        Corinth, and other Poems. Dedicated (by Permission) to the Right Hon. Viscountess Anson.

      Printed by Ellerton and Henderson ?, London 1821 - First edition, scarce.The three decades following the publication of Byron's narrative poem 'The Siege of Corinth' (1816) saw a profusion of dramatic and poetic reinterpretations, but this is one of the first (it predates Charlotte de Humboldt's Corinth, A Tragedy by seventeen years). It is also one of the most original, for whilst Earle touches on Byron's subject-the Ottoman massacre of the Venetian garrison at Corinth-Earle covers a much broader range of Corinthian history. She opens with an account of the 7th Century BCE tyrant Cypselus, before proceeding to outline the gradual moral decline of the city-state, before the arrival of Paul with his promise of salvation. The tone of the collection is devout, and moralising, but Earle wears her classical learning lightly and the poems are elucidated by useful contextualising notes. The other works include the charmingly-titled 'Impromptu on a Nosegay of Roses', as well as 'Epistle from Bonaparte to Maria Louisa' and 'The Maniac's Tale'. The thirteen-page List of Subscribers includes the Archbishop of York. 8vo (210 x 129 mm), pp. 111, [1]; lightly and uniformly browned, endleaves foxed; contemporary diced calf, blind and gilt borders, gilt edges, spine ornately gilt with raised bands; rebacked, preserving original spine (one section of missing); contemporary dedication inscription to endpaper: 'Charlotte Mary Cobb, as a birthday present, from her affectionate sister M. C. Cobb, 19th Decr 1821'. [COPAC records six copies, at The British Library, Bodley, Cambridge, Leeds, The National Trust and Aberdeen, to which WorldCat adds Indiana and Yale.

        Journal de physiologie expérimentale et pathologique.

      Paris, Auteur et Méquignon-Marvis, 1821-1828. ____ Première édition de ce trimestriel, dirigé par François Magendie. Il y a publié ses travaux les plus importants, notamment ses recherches sur la physiologie du système nerveux. Dans "Expérience sur les fonctions des racines des nerfs rachidiens" il observe que "les racines antérieures et postérieures des nerfs qui naissent à la moelle épinière, ont des fonctions différentes, les postérieures paraissent plus particulièrement destinées à la sensibilité, tandis que les antérieures semblent plus spécialement liées avec le mouvement." (vol. 2, p. 279) "This discovery has been called the most momentous single discovery in physiology after Harvey." Norman 1418. Cette série est illustrée par 20 planches hors-texte en lithographie. 2 planches ont un élément mobile (un foetus) imprimé sur les deux faces.

        Album mit 7 Aquatinta-Ansichten der Universität Dorpat in Livland, dem heutigen Tartu in Estland.

      Ohne Verlag, Dorpat 1821 - 7 Blatt Text und 7 Tafeln in Aquatinta. Querformatige Broschur (ca. 15 x 21 cm) mit einfachem Heftstreifen der Zeit, das erste Textblatt rückseitig vom Vorbesitzer in Kugelschreiber fälschlich mit "Leyden" betitelt. Die sehr dekorativen Ansichten zeigen vor allem Gebäude der 1632 gestifteten und 1802 erneuerten Universität Dorpat, nämlich Das Anatomicum, das Hauptgebäude [der Universität], die botanischen Gartenhäuser, das Clinicum, die Sternwarte, die Domkirchenruine (= Universitätsbibliothek) sowie das 1806 errichtete Monument zur Bestattung der Gebeine, die man um die ehemalige Marienkirche gefunden hatte. Die Folge erschien wohl ohne eigenes Titelblatt und wird in der Literatur verschiedentlich als "Dörptsche Ansichten" oder "Ansichten von Universitätsgebäuden" geführt. A. P. Clara (1790 oder 1791 in Dorpat - 1850 in St. Petersburg) studierte 1811-15 in Dorpat Philosophie und zugleich beim "Lehrer der Zeichenkunst und Kupferstecherei", dem Pastellmaler und Kupferstecher Carl August Senff. Nach kurzer Tätigkeit als Zeichenlehrer in Dorpat wurde er auf Vermittlung Senffs und des Dichters W. Joukoffsky als Hofgraveur nach St. Petersburg berufen, wo er wiederum vor allem als Lehrer tätig war. Beiliegend ein hübsches Aquarell eines A. Herrmann nach Claras Ansicht des Clinicums. Gering stockfleckig und zwei Blatt mit leichter Knickspur, insgesamt handelt es sich jedoch um ein ordentliches Exemplar der schönen Ansichten der im 19. Jahrhundert wohl bedeutendsten Universität des Baltikums mit nur leichten Gebrauchsspuren. Sehr selten. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Chronological Retrospect, or Memoirs of the Principal Events of Mahommedan History. From the Death of the Arabian Legislator, to the Accession of the Emperor Akbar, and the Establishment of the Moghul Empire in Hindustaun. From the Original Persian Authorities.

      London: J. Booth; Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme and Brown; and Black, Kingsbury, Parbury, and Allen, 1821 - 3 volumes in 4, quarto (272 × 208 mm). Recent brown half sheep period-style, spines gilt tooled on raised bands, blind tooled in compartments, red and black twin labels, marbled sides and edges. An attractive set: clean and well-margined. Large folding handcoloured map of Asia (from the eastern Meditarrenean to Korea, and from Siberia to Mysore). First edition sheets with title pages dated 1821 and issued by the publishers on completion of the work, scarce. A significant work by the orientalist and army officer David Price (1762–1835), who saw action in the Third Anglo-Mysore War against Tipu Sultan, and, on retiring from the East India Company's service, settled in Wales and "devoted himself to writing long, leisurely works on Arabian, Persian, and Indian history. Of these the best-known and the most important is Chronological Retrospect This covers the period from the death of Muhammad to the accession of Akbar. The earlier volumes are based chiefly on the Persian chronicles of Mirkhand and Khandamir, and are most detailed and accurate with respect to Persian history; but in the last volume Abu'l-Fazl is largely used. It is written in the over-ornate style of Price's sources, but it is the painstaking work of a genuine scholar anxious to do full justice to his authorities. Without pretending to any striking grasp or generalization, it is nevertheless useful and was for many years almost the only English work of reference for some branches of Eastern history" (ODNB).

Nearly 5000 species are described by Fries in these four volumes, and his fame today rests mainly on this intimate knowledge of the fungal species and his naming of them. His general classification however, is now of minor importance. The general index in the third part, also covering the Elenchus is made by A. E. Lindblom. Part one and two were later issued in a Titelauflage, with the imprint changed to Greifswald. Fine provenance from Elias M. Fries? descendant Nils Fries (1912-94), also professor of botany at the university of Uppsala. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Direct from the Regency library of Elizabeth Greenly, later Lady Elizabeth Coffin Greenly. Elizabeth Greenly, born at Titley Court, Herefordshire, was a noted and varied collector. She kept prolific diaries from 1784 until her death in 1839 which included her responses to current events and occasions in her daily life. Among the diaries many names and anecdotes of celebrities of the time appear, including Lord Byron, Marie Antoinette, Mary Wollstonecraft and Hannah More. She was known to comment on customs of foreign countries to which she and her friends had travelled, and had a keen interest in scientific discoveries and advancements including medicine and archaeology. The Greenly library contents show Elizabeth Greenly's numerous interests including: Welsh causes, Science, topography, travel, Bibliana and literature, particularly female poets. The library contains many first editions of contemporary works, and many are signed or contain her bookplate. The library contained over 1000 volumes which show the diversity and depth of her interests and give an insight into the life of this fascinating collector. Collated, complete. The contents lists each portrait plate and lists the Part, Canto and Line of Hudibras they are mentioned. Condition: In a half calf binding. Externally, generally smart. Rubbing to joints and spine. Prior owner's bookplate to front pastedown. Spotting to first and last few pages with the odd spot throughout. Overall: VERY GOOD. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Resoconto sui progressi della medicina odontoiatrica in Piemonte, l'ultimo in ordine cronologico fra quanti di tal genere pubblicati dal Cornelio. Alle pp. 149 e sgg., con frontespizio autonomo, sono pubblicate le Regie Patenti in data 7 aprile 1818 con cui era accordato al Cornelio dal Re il privilegio privativo per anni dieci, di costrurre, e vendere un Compressore elastico per le Ernie, da lui inventato. Il Cornelio (Roccella Jonica, 1752-Torino,1832), detto il Cavaliere Incognito, prima di divenire dentista alla corte sabauda ebbe una giovinezza irregolare ed errabonda. Unitosi a una compagnia di comici, divenne successivamente assistente di un medico-ciarlatano, Monsieur Pomer, che lo introdusse alla dissezione dei cadaveri e ad altre pratiche mediche. Separatosi dal Pomer, prese a vagare per la Sicilia smerciando prodotti medici e divenendo poi dentista, attività che proseguì a Roma e, infine, a Torino, dove sostenne con successo l'esame per diventare chirurgo dentista approvato. Come dentista il suo principale merito fu di aver caldeggiato l'introduzione delle protesi in porcellana, che costituirono un'autentica rivoluzione della medicina odontoiatrica del tempo.

        Leghorn from the Convent of Montenero

      ? 1821 - grande veduta panoramica presa dal Convento di Montenero. Sullo sfondo le montagne di Massa e Carrara. - il Gran Tour: il taccuino di viaggio di un ammiraglio inglese - Dal taccuino da viaggio dell’ammiraglio inglese William Paget che, come si evince dall’annotazione di pugno dell’autore, egli nomina come "Sketches in the South of France, Coast of Italy, Rome, Elba and Lombardy, Lake of Como and Maggiore in the years 1819-20-21". Il gruppo di lavori in nostro possesso riguarda la costa ligure, parte della Toscana con particolare attenzione all’isola d’Elba, e un nutrito gruppo di opere sui laghi lombardi. La qualità delle opere risulta varia e contrastata, particolarmente incentrata sulla realizzazione del paesaggio naturistico, raramente arricchito da figure umane. La mano del pittore dilettante è chiara, tuttavia i lavori si fanno apprezzare per il loro aspetto decorativo, per la loro gradevolezza di fondo e soprattutto per l’interesse iconografico dei luoghi raffigurati. La tecnica usata è quella del veloce disegno a matita successivamente colorato con l’uso dell’acquarello. Il supporto usato è, prevalentemente, una carta vergata spessa, ovviamente inglese, tipica del primo periodo dell’800. I differenti formati delle opere lasciano presupporre che si tratti di diversi taccuini da viaggio, poi amalgamati dalla storia nel corso dei due secoli trascorsi. Trattandosi di un album da disegno, quasi tutte le opere presentano al verso altri lavori. Taken from the travel notebook of an english admiral, William Paget, who called them "Sketches in the South of France, Coast of Italy, Rome, Elba and Lombardy, Lake of Como and Maggiore in the years 1819-20-21" as can be seen from his own handwriting. These works present views of the Liguria region, parts of Tuscany (especially the island of Elba), and a large number dedicated to the lakes of Lombardy. The artistic quality is not the same for all of these water-colours and their author is more interested in the natural scenery than in representing people. It can be seen that they were created by an amateur painter and their greatest interest lies in their iconographical an decorative values. From the point of view of artistic techiniques these works were created by first making a preliminary drawing with a pencil, usually on thick laid paper (typically used in early nineteenth-century England), and then painting it with water-colours. Since these works come in different sizes, the notebooks originally might have been more than one. Dimensioni 590 205mm

        Trial of John M'Dougall & James Menzies, Before Sir John Connell.

      1821 - A Brazen Case of Maritime Insurance Fraud in Scotland [Trial]. M'Dougall, James, Defendant. Menzies, James, Defendant. Trial of John M'Dougall & James Menzies, Before Sir John Connell, Knt. Judge Admiral of Scotland, For Casting Away a Vessel, The Friends of Glasgow: And of John M'Dougall, And Archibald M'Lachlan, For Abstracting Goods from a Vessel Called the Mary, And Afterwards Scuttling Her. Glasgow: Printed by Young and Gallie, For Maurice Ogle, 1821. 34 pp. Lacking half-title. Octavo (8" x 4-3/4"). Disbound stab-stitched pamphlet. Minor edgewear, light soiling to exterior, moderate toning, light foxing to a few leaves. A scarce title. * Only edition. The well-insured ships owned by M'Dougall and Menzies had a suspicious tendency to founder. This was not a problem for the firm. Indeed, insurance payments enabled it to prosper. The present case involved two ships that were built by the firm, then scuttled for insurance. The Friends of Glasgow, with a cargo of coffee for Hamburg, and the Mary, with a cargo of calico cloth for Trinidad. Providentially, and just like previous scuttlings, the captains and crews were saved. M'Dougall was indicted for insurance fraud. He successfully faked insanity at his trial and escaped with a light sentence: banishment to Botany Bay for the rest of his life.
