        Veduta degl\' Avanzi della Rupe Tarpeja

      Rome 1822 - This is part of capitol cliff.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 : 535x390 (mm), 21x15.375 (Inches), Platemark Size : 550x400 (mm), 21.625x15.75 (Inches), Paper Size : 738x518 (mm), 29x20.375 (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>

Overall very good. ---- FIRST EDITION. Rego Barreto begins by describing the state in which he found Pernambuco, and proceeds to narrate the principal events in his government: repression of corrupt officials, public works, militia reform, events of the "Rodeador," the insurrection of November 1820, return of the prisoners of 1817, the revolt of Goyanna, the election of the provincial government, and more.Rego Barreto (1777-1840), a hero of the Peninsular War, went to Brazil in 1816 to organize a volunteer militia for the king, and was assigned the thankless task of putting down the 1817 rebellion in Pernambuco. Although still weak from an attempt on his life, in 1821 he again fought the revolutionaries in Pernambuco before returning to Portugal. Due to his distinguished service in the civil wars, D. Maria II named him first Visconde de Geraz-do-Lima.---- Borba de Moraes (1983) I, 81: "This is a rare pamphlet which Rodrigues did not own, and which is not in Sacramento Blake."

        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.

        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. .

        Autograph manuscript signed. 10pp., with Recamier Autograph letter signed.

      Paris 1822 - Chaussier, François (1746-1828). Autograph manuscript draft. 10pp. on 10 numbered leaves. [Paris:] 3 February 1822. Written on the backs of several printed and manuscript documents, including the following: Recamier, Joseph (1774-1852). Autograph letter signed to Chaussier. 1 page plus integral address leaf. [Paris:] 17 January 1822. Together two items. 254 x 201 mm. A few lacunae where seals were broken, a few pin-holes, minor marginal fraying, but very good. Chaussier, a pioneer in forensic medicine, introduced the teaching of legal medicine in France in 1790. He began his medical career in Dijon, where he taught anatomy, chemistry and material medica at the Dijon Academy. In 1794, at the request of the French government, Chaussier went to Paris to help reorganize the country's system of medical education through the creation of the Écoles de Santé. He afterwards served as professor of anatomy in the new school, taught the course of chemistry and medicine at the École Polytechnique, and worked as a physician at the Hospice de la Maternité, where he conducted research on teratology and forensic medicine. During his long and distinguished medical career Chaussier earned a reputation as an expert in legal medicine, giving consultations, writing forensic reports, and publishing several works on the subject, including Manuel médico-légal des poisons (1824), Recueil de mémoires, consultations, et rapports sur divers objets de médecine légale (1824) and Mémoire médico-légal sur la viabilité de l'enfant naissant (1826). Chaussier's manuscript draft is a review of two earlier medical reports concerning the case of a newborn infant found dead in a cesspool. Chaussier's handwriting is difficult to read, and we have not been able to decipher all of the draft; however, we have been able to determine that much of the draft is devoted to discussing the state of the dead infant's lungs, attempting to determine whether the infant had begun to breathe before its demise. Chaussier describes the appearance of the lungs of dead infants in similar cases:Un enfant naissant meurt quelques minutes après avoir respire et dans ces cas, dont nous avons souvent des exemples a l'hospice de la maternité, les poumons sont toujours développés, rosés, crépitants, leur poids [ ] et lors qu'on les met dans l'eau ils submergent complètement.[A newborn infant dies several minutes after having breathed and in these cases, of which we often have examples at the Hospice de la Maternité, the lungs are always developed, pink, crepitant, their weight [ ], and when one puts them in water they always sink completely.]And elsewhere:Mais remarquons . . . selon qu'un enfant est mort après avoir respiré, faut-il donc en conclure ainsi qu'on le fait trop souvent que cet enfant a été tué.[But note. . . if a child died after breathing, it should be concluded as one does too often that this child was killed.]He also notes that the infant's umbilical cord was not present, and mentions the possibility that gas present in the infant cadaver's lungs might be the result of putrefaction, given the fact that the body had been in the cesspool eleven days before its discovery.Chaussier wrote this draft of his report on the backs of several printed or manuscript documents, including a letter sent to him a few weeks earlier by Joseph Recamier, chief physician at the Hôtel-Dieu, a pioneer in gynecological surgery (see Garrison-Morton 6033), and a cancer specialist who came up with the modern definition of metastasis. The letter reads as follows:Monsieur et très honoré collègue,On doit traiter une question de médecine légale au sujet d'un chevreuil et d'une dindonneau truffée trouvés morts chez Gri[ ] rue neuve des petits champs no. 4. La séance s'ouvrira par une discussion sur les empoisonnements par les huitres le 24 jvr. courant à 3h et . On écoutera avec soin la question des champignons malgré les favorites [ ] du docteur [ ?poulet].Voyez, si vos affaires vous permettent d'être du [ ] d [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Recueil sur la pédagogie.

      Paris, 1814-1822, - 10 pièces en un vol. in-8. demi-veau blond, dos lisse orné d'un fleuron doré, pièces de titre noires, tranches mouchetées (Boichot). Bel exemplaire. C'est une fois la paix revenue et les relations normales avec la Grande-Bretagne rétablies que s'introduisit en France la méthode d'enseignement mutuel mise au point à partir de 1795 en Angleterre par Andrew Bell et son disciple Joseph Lancaster. Elle fut à la fois adoptée par les libéraux qui souhaitaient développer un enseignement non congréganiste et aussi immédiatement l'objet d'une très vive controverse émanant des milieux cléricaux et contre-révolutionnaires, qui aboutit d'ailleurs à sa condamnation formelle par le pape Léon XII en 1824. Le problème principal était que, sous les arguments idéologiques liés à la notion d'autorité du maître, se dissimulaient des nécessités concrètes : manque criant d'enseignants du côté public, autorisation d'enseigner redonnée aux congrégations religieuses du côté clérical. I. Dissertation historique et politique, sur la néccessité de rétablir en France l'instruction publique et l'éducation de la jeunesse, et sur les moyens d'y parvenir.

Première traduction française de The British system of education (1803, repris sous ce titre en 1810), dans lequel le fameux pédagogue quaker Lancaster (1778-1838) présentait les principales caractéristiques de son "enseignement mutuel" (dans lequel les élèves les plus âgés se chargent de 'l'instruction des plus jeunes) et dont l'importartion sur le continent suscita tant de controverses.
