        Pl. 22 Thebes, Memnonium: Details de la Statue Colossalle de Memnon

      Paris 1822 - Edme-François Jomard Published by Louis-Fleury Panckoucke Second Edition: Paris, 1822. Copperplate engraving 20" x 26" While Napoleon Bonaparte’s Egyptian military campaign was an unmitigated disaster, for the scientists, artists and historians who accompanied him it was an unqualified success. His invasion was designed to halt Great Britiain’s land trade route to India, thus striking a fatal blow to its economy and allowing Napoleon the opportunity to conquer the Indian sub-continent. As he stated in his memoirs: “Europe presents no field for glorious exploits; no great empires or revolutions are to be found, but in the East where there are six hundred million men . . . My glory is declining. This little corner of Europe is too small to supply it. We must go East. All the great men of the world have there acquired their celebrity.” He planned to be a new Alexander the Great, bringing glory to France and, more importantly, to himself. In July 1798, 400 French transport ships landed 34,000 troops and approximately 1,000 civilians near Alexandria. The former were to spend three miserable years fighting the British with only one third of them surviving the grueling conditions. Indeed, Napoleon abandoned his army only one year into the campaign to return to France and stage a coup d’etat which eventually crowned him Emperor. The civilians who had arrived with them were to fair rather better than their military compatriots. They were the scholars whose work was to eventually fill the pages of the twenty-two volume tome Description de l’Egypt which was to remain the authoritative guide to Egyptology for several decades. The Institut d’Egypte in Cairo was founded by Napoleon on August 22, 1798 and was modeled after the Institut de France. It was the umbrella for an encyclopedic number of research fields and was crucial to the organization of information in the Description de l’Egypt. These disciplines included archeology, botany, natural history and cartography and in each case required not only a retinue of scientists but also of artists who pictorially described Egypt. Their illustrations filled twelve volumes of the Description de l’Egypt comprising 925 plates in all and first published between 1809 and 1826 under the editorship of Edme-François Jomard. It was dedicated to Napoleon Bonaparte and the artists employed were amongst France’s finest. The painter André Dutertre, and archaelogist and historian Dominique Vivant Denon, contributed substantially to the section on literature and the arts, while Henri-Joseph Redouté, the brother of Pierre-Joseph, devoted himself to natural history. Upon his return to Paris, Henri-Joseph was also to make botanical studies to illustrate the work of Etienne Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire and Alire Raffeneau-Delile on the flora and fauna of the Nile Valley. His brother Pierre-Joseph and the famed artist Jacques Barraband had not taken part in the expedition but did provide illustrations for the Description de l’Egypt. Thus, this monumental work was the culmination of many years of study and dedication by France’s leading scientists and artists. It was a ground-breaking study for its time and remains an important milestone in the study of Egypt and its treasures.

        AN ACCOUNT OF THE LATE INTENDED INSURRECTION AMONG A PORTION OF THE BLACKS OF THIS CITY. PUBLISHED BY THE AUTHORITY OF THE CORPORATION OF CHARLESTON

      Charleston: Printed by A.E. Miller, 1822.. 48pp. Modern half calf and marbled boards, leather spine label. Portion of titlepage, an approximately 1" by 2" rectangle affecting the words "the Late Intended Insurrection" excised, supplied in facsimile, also removing the text of the City Council resolution on the verso. Old tape repair across upper portion of text on pp.9-10. Else good. The primary contemporary account of the 1822 slave uprising in Charleston, South Carolina, written by James Hamilton, the Intendant (Mayor) of Charleston. This is the first edition, followed by two more Charleston editions and a Boston edition, all in the same year. All are rare. Led by Denmark Vesey, a former slave who had fought for his freedom, the planned uprising was exposed by one of the conspirators before it even began. Vesey and thirty- four other African-Americans were convicted of conspiracy to seize the city of Charleston and executed. Several others who were arrested and were found guilty were imprisoned or sent out of the state, while some were found not guilty and returned to their owners. The first thirty pages give a narrative how the plot was uncovered and an account of the trials. The appendix includes summaries of testimony, confessions, a table of the defendants, and the sentence of defendant Jack Pritchard, also known as "Gullah Jack." Vesey receives the lion's share of the blame in the conspiracy, driven by "a malignant hatred of whites, and inordinate lust of power and booty," though the leaders of the local African Methodist Church (several of the insurrectionists came from their ranks) also receive some blame. In a note "to the public" at the start of the text, Hamilton writes that he has, at the request Charleston City Council, brought together all the evidence of the plot and the account of its aftermath to show that "there can be no harm in the salutary inculcation of one lesson, among a certain [i.e. slave] portion of population, that there is nothing they are bad enough to do, that we are not powerful enough to punish." The Vesey uprising and the Nat Turner rebellion in Virginia in 1831 terrified white southerners, especially slaveowners, and led to more repressive treatment of slaves. Though the printer, A.E. Miller, advertises that this pamphlet was available for twenty-five cents, "discount by the hundred," it is quite rare in the market; this firm has handled one perfect copy, sold for $15,000.

        Délassements de l'esprit ou Manuscrit complet de Littérature En tous genres, politique, Philosophique, et morale, tiré des meilleurs Auteurs tant anciens que modernes, et contenant des Pièces inédites. En deux parties avec une Table des matières à la fin de chaque partie, Par Pierre Francois Blondeau. [manuscrit ]

      1822 - Livre ancien 1ère partie : 832 p. 2ème partie : 586 p. Une imposante compilation de chansons manuscrite. Cette impressionnante compilation rédigée sur plusieurs années regroupe plusieurs centaines de pièces rares ou curieuses, allant de l'envolée patriotique, à la satire de moeurs, en passant par le vaudeville et la chanson à boire. Ecrite d'une ample et très lisible écriture appliquée, chaque pièce est présentée par des tires de différentes couleurs - rouge, vert, ocre, or, bleu, etc. - dans des effets calligraphiques remplissant parfois toute la page. Les pièces de Voltaire y côtoient les couplets révolutionnaires entonnés lors de la célébration des Arbres de la Liberté. Plus loin, une chanson grivoise extrêmement crue succède à l'hymne chantée devant l'Eglise métropolitaine de Paris le jour de la Fête de la Raison. Certains airs ont visiblement été choisis parce ce qu'ils étaient à la mode, et d'autres pour leur côté provocateur. Cette surprenante production est passée entre les mains d'un amateur anglais, William Bury, dont on voit la signature autographe. Pourrait-il s'agir du William Henry Berry, célèbre assassin pendu pour le meurtre de sa femme, et que d'aucuns suspecte d'être le véritable Jack l'Eventreur ? Condition : Fort in-folio, en pleine basane cerise, orné sur les plats d'une importante composition estampée à froid à motif de lyre, encadrée d'une roulette palmée, dos plat. 1er plat détaché. 1200g.

      Rome 1822 - This is the Temple of Portuna, the god of the harbours. This is a very good example of a Republican temple built under Greek influence. Luigi Rossini was a master engraver who produced over one thousand plates of buildings, ruins, gardens and monuments. His career coincided with a period of great archeological activity. His etchings of Rome followed Piranesi\'s example, and reported the latest excavations to an avidly interested European audience. In turn, as they were carried home by Northern Europeans on the Grand Tour, the etchings fuelled worldwide interest in classical architecture., Image Size : 385x535 (mm), 15.125x21 (Inches), Platemark Size : 400x543 (mm), 15.75x21.375 (Inches), Paper Size : 520x740 (mm), 20.5x29.125 (Inches), Black & White, Copper Engraving

        Autograph letter signed to André Melly

      Geneva, 1822. <p>Boissier, Henri (1762-1845). Autograph letter signed to André Melly (1802-51). Geneva, 21 March 1822. 2pp. plus integral address leaf. 202 x 155 mm. Docketed.</p><p>From Professor Henri Boissier, founder of Geneva&#39;s natural history museum, to the young Swiss businessman André Melly, acting as the museum&#39;s purchasing agent in England, regarding the purchase of insect specimens for the museum. Boissier informs Melly that the museum&#39;s collections have recently been augmented "par un don de coléopteres de M. le Dr. Peschier où il y a de bonnes choses, & par un achast de quelques bons papillons & insectes exotiques que m&#39;a procuré M. Prévost" [by a gift of coleoptera from Dr. Peschier containing some good things, and by a purchase of several good butterflies and foreign insects from M. Prévost].This last purchase "a un peu réduit la somme que la cours avait mit à ma disposition. Je ne peut donc vous faire payer pour le moment qu&#39;un bon de f. 400 que je vous prie d&#39;employer, comme vous le jugerai convenable, surtout en orthoptères, hémiptères & névroptères dont nous sommes très mal fournis" [has reduced somewhat the amount made available to me from the course. At this moment I can only pay you the sum of 400 francs which I urge you to use, as you see fit, primarily for orthoptera, hemiptera and neuroptera, which we greatly lack]. Boissier lists several species of each that he wishes to acquire, including "criquets & sauter[elles] exotiq[ues]" [foreign crickets and grasshoppers] and "termites ou fourmis blanches" [termites or white ants]. He instructs Melly to expedite the shipment of insects to him so that he will have enough time to unpack them and put them in cases.</p><p>"Dr. Peschier" may refer to Geneva native Charles Gaspard Peschier (1782-1853), a pioneer of homeopathic medicine in French-speaking countries. M. Prévost, another Genevan, was a founder of the firm of Prévost and Morris in London. Boissier&#39;s correspondent, André Melly, ended up settling in England in 1822 (the year that this letter was written), and becoming a prominent businessman in northern England. He acted as agent to the Viceroy of India and then to the Egyptian Government, dying of fever while on a tour of the Nile in 1851. </p>

        Three panoramic views of Port Jackson, in New South Wales, with the town of Sydney, and the adjacent scenery. After original drawings by . Taylor. drawn from nature. between 1817 and 1822

      - From an edition limited to 110 copies, printed from the original printing plates in 1988 employing the same techniques as used in 1823. This fine edition was published as a collaborative effort between the State Library of New South Wales and the renowned fine art publishers, Alecto Editions. "By 1820, Sydney was a town of 12,000 inhabitants, about a third of whom were convicts. It had grown dramatically during the administration of Lachlan Macquarie who was appointed governor of New South Wales in 1810. Unlike previous governors, Macquarie was not content merely to oversee a penal colony. His vigorous building programme changed forever the appearance of Sydney, while his policy of accepting emancipated convicts as respected citizens demonstrated a social attitude strangely out of step with the times. Both these policies earned him criticism. In 1819, alarmed by Macquarie's extravagant public works, the British Government commissioned a lawyer and civil servant, J.T.Bigge, to investigate. The attacks by his critics were met head on by Macquarrie's supporters in New South Wales. Books, pamphlets and paintings luded the governor's undoubted achievements. Almost certainly Major Taylor's drawings were used in, if not commissioned for, this cause. The engraved views of the Panorama present a flattering image of the Australian seat of government and, by extension, of Macquarie's term there.Taylor arranged the engraving and printing of the of the three sheet Panorama. upon his return to England in July 1822.Havell appears to have worked from [Taylor's]. large watercolours, but amended them with additional details. and decorative elements.It is most fortuitous that the copper plates.have survived. There is no other example of such a case for 19th century Australian engravings." Three plates, engraved by Robert Havell and son, printed by Edward Egerton-Williams in colours and finished by hand, each with printer's blindstamp.

        Vue de L'Ile de L'Ascension Prise du Mouillage

      Paris: 1822-25 - Louis-Isidore Duperrey (1786-1865) View from Voyage autour du Monde Historie du Voyage Paris: 1822-25 Hand-colored engravings 12 ¾" x 9 ½"; 22" x 18 ½" framed The only other Europeans besides the English to play a significant part in mapping the Pacific including New Zealand's coastline and were the French. From 1800 to 1840, there were ten major French voyages to Australia and the Pacific. The main purpose of these was scientific, however there was also an unspoken goal of discovering where France might carve out an empire of her own in the South Pacific. In addition to the vast collections of specimens and scientific data that were brought back, these voyages were distinguished by the publication of the most sumptuous collections of engravings noting not only the native plants and animals, but also the geography of the land and nature of its inhabitants. Scientists, artists and engravers-attached to the Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris were paid by the French Government and worked over many years to produce these extraordinary documentations of each voyage. Of great note is the expedition lead by Lois-Isidore Duperrey on the vessel named Coquille which left Toulon August 11, 1822 and arrived in Marseilles on March 24, 1825. Duperrey joined the navy in 1802, and served as marine hydrologist to Louis Claude de Saulces de Freycinet aboard the Uranie (1817-1820), a previous expedition that had earned Duperrey praise and granted him the opportunity to command his own ship on what would become one of the greatest French expeditions to the Pacific. Duperrey proceeded to the Pacific by way of Brazil and Cape Horn. Stops were made along the coats of Chile and Peru, and in the Society, Gilbert , Marshall and Caroline islands. Other islands visited included the Tuamoto, Archipelago, Tahiti, Tonga and Rotuma. The expedition also made important exploratory visits to Australia, New Guinea and New Zealand, where the Maoris were visited. The entire voyage took almost three years. By far the greatest contributions of the expedition were scientific, cartographic, and ethnographic. 1200 Insects, 288 fishes, 264 birds, 63 reptiles and quantities of plants were collected and beautifully described and reproduced in the exquisitly colored plates of the several atlases of Voyage autour du Monde. Recordings were made on Polynesian languages, costumes, weapons and religious artifcats. Duperrey is given credit for discovering the Caroline and Gilbert islands, and for correcting errors in earlier charts of the Society Islands. Duperrey's also continued to explore the French interest in Tahiti and the Society Islands, which culminated in their annexation by France. His expedition also proved to be a catalyst for French missionary endeavors in the South Pacific to contest with Protestant Englishmen. His explorations of Australia and New Zealand were less significant politically, since the British opposed any French settlement there. Nonetheless, this largely scientific endeavor opened the door to a much more aggressive French policy in the South Pacific.

Duperrey proceeded to the Pacific by way of Brazil and Cape Horn. Stops were made along the coats of Chile and Peru, and in the Society, Gilbert , Marshall and Caroline islands. Other islands visited included the Tuamoto, Archipelago, Tahiti, Tonga and Rotuma. The expedition also made important exploratory visits to Australia, New Guinea and New Zealand, where the Maoris were visited. The entire voyage took almost three years. By far the greatest contributions of the expedition were scientific, cartographic, and ethnographic. 1200 Insects, 288 fishes, 264 birds, 63 reptiles and quantities of plants were collected and beautifully described and reproduced in the exquisitly colored plates of the several atlases of Voyage autour du Monde. Recordings were made on Polynesian languages, costumes, weapons and religious artifcats. Duperrey is given credit for discovering the Caroline and Gilbert islands, and for correcting errors in earlier charts of the Society Islands. Duperrey's also continued to explore the French interest in Tahiti and the Society Islands, which culminated in their annexation by France. His expedition also proved to be a catalyst for French missionary endeavors in the South Pacific to contest with Protestant Englishmen. His explorations of Australia and New Zealand were less significant politically, since the British opposed any French settlement there. Nonetheless, this largely scientific endeavor opened the door to a much more aggressive French policy in the South Pacific.

        Early 19th-Century Engineer&#39;s or Mechanic&#39;s Manuscript Notebook

      [Circa 1822]. Nearly square octavo. Blank book with stitched illustrated wrappers printed with "Fredrich II nach der Schlacht bei Kollin" ["Fredrich II after the Battle of Kollin"] printed on the front wrap and "Potsdam" on the rear. 18 unnumbered leaves, both sides of each page heavily used for both written and drawn descriptions of mechanical devices and inventions. Staining, particularly at the front and rear pages, and some erosion along the top edge that removes a modest amount of text, but nothing substantial, good only but pleasing and delightful.A wonderful notebook used by an engineer or mechanic, possibly by an advanced student. Undated but likely circa 1822, many of the devices described were developed about that time. Descriptions of approximately 23 devices and a couple of methods of measurement, each with one or more nicely accomplished and detailed illustrative drawings. The text is mostly written in brown ink, the drawings in pen and ink, some with wash or color added. The inside cover reveals the floor plan of a house, the first page shows three portraits, (one labeled "A Great Mechanic"); other illustrated devices are Tantalus&#39;s Cup, a Diving Bell, "Vessels used in making the Breakwater in Plymouth Sound [1819]," a Mowing Machine, Agate Milling machinery, a Log Land Life Safety Beacon erected on the shore in 1820, a Pedomotive Carriage (essentially a three wheeled bicycle), an automated cross-cut saw, a foot-operated paddle boat, a couple of clocks, Hadley&#39;s Quadrant, and two different nautical lifesaving devices: Lt. Bell&#39;s mortar that shoots a life line, and a full-page colored illustration that shows a similar method using oaken barrels developed by Mr. Crane of Norwich, as well as several other devices. The final drawing is one of the most intriguing: "Velocipede to be fixed to the feet like skates" but which looks similar to a modern skateboard. A very pleasing notebook filled with interesting drawings. .
