      [N.p. n.d., but probably ca. 1822].. Broadside, 11 1/2 x 9 inches. Lightly and evenly tanned. Some light soiling, minor foxing; small hole in top corner, not affecting text. Manuscript notation on verso. Good plus. Broadside describing William Dunlap's painting "Christ Rejected" (1822), with a line noting that admission is 25 cents, though a ticket "admitting the bearer at all times during the Exhibition" is 50 cents. Dunlap (1766-1839) was a dramatist, historian, and painter, authoring numerous stage plays and managing a theatre company. Born in New Jersey, the son of a merchant, Dunlap had little formal schooling but trained as a painter, eventually studying with Benjamin West. While in London, however, he primarily reveled in the theatre scene, writing and producing his first play in 1787 upon his return to New York. He became a managing partner in the American Company in 1796, an organization which eventually went bankrupt. Though he returned officially to his painting career, he flirted with the theatre on and off for financial reasons until 1811, though he continued to write plays. "As his principal biographer, Oral Sumner Coad, has noted, Dunlap was a man of moderate innate talent but of seemingly unlimited versatility, energy, and enthusiasm, who participated in practically all of the significant cultural activities of his day" - ANB. He is considered to be one of the fathers of American drama. He also authored several histories on the American theatre and the first book on the history of the fine arts in the United States, HISTORY OF THE ARTS OF DESIGN. During the 1820s, Dunlap produced a series of large- scale exhibition paintings based on the life of Christ, among which is the painting described in the present broadside. "The picture represents the events which took place when Pilate brought forth Jesus from the Judgment Hall to the Pavement crowned with thorns, and in the gorgeous robe with which he had been arrayed by Herod." The broadside goes on to described the various groups of people assembled and their place amongst the throng on the canvas. All of Dunlap's large exhibition paintings have perished and are known only through descriptions such as this, excepting "Christ Rejected" which is also known in one small-scale study located at the Princeton Art Museum.

        A Geographical Historical and Topographical Description of Van Diemen's LandÖ

      London,: John Souter, 1822.. Octavo, with folding engraved view of Hobart Town after a sketch by Evans; a fine uncut copy with large margins; handsome half crushed red-brown morocco by Sangorski and Sutcliffe. First edition of Evans' important and influential emigrants' guide to Tasmania. A separately issued map was available to buy with the book (which was 7s 6d without the map and 15s with it) but the book is much more often seen without it.Evans' was the first separate work on the colony to have been written, though in fact it was beaten into print by a similar work by Charles Jeffreys - which essentially plagiarised Evans, supposedly from a stolen manuscript. Evans gives an excellent account of the geography, history and prospects of Van Diemen's Land and includes detailed procedures for prospective emigrants. Appendices list landholders, prices for agricultural produce and other relevant information for settlers.Evans was Macquarie's favourite explorer and was appointed Surveyor General of Van Diemen's Land as a reward for his fine services in exploring the territory west of the Blue Mountains and as second-in-command to Oxley. His guide to the colony began life as a guidebook for Macquarie during his tour of Van Diemen's Land; it is the best description of the state of the colony in the first decades of its existence. Evans' explorations and surveys were foremost in advancing the geographical knowledge of the colony - "his achievements would have momentous effects on the future prosperity of the colony", as Macquarie himself said.Ferguson, 861; Wantrup, 55.

        The series of three official reports into the state of New South Wales

      House of Commons,: 1822-, 1823.. Three volumes, folio; fine copies with large margins, uncut in the original printed blue wrappers; a very good set bound into modern leather folders and boxed. A fine set of the full enquiry into Governor Macquarie's administration of New South Wales. Bligh's replacement as governor, Macquarie saw off his unpopular predecessor and set to work on building up the colony; although it was to be in many ways a golden era, it would be distracted by the same unrest that had characterised Bligh's reign. London was alarmed by the continuing disquiet in the colony, and by the governor's visions of grandeur, and sent out Bigge to have a look.John Thomas Bigge (1780-1843) was appointed Royal Commissioner, with sweeping powers, by Lord Bathurst ostensibly to examine the transportation system, but 'it was clear that Macquarie's administration as much as the transportation system was under review. From the moment of his arrival in the colony in 1819 Bigge's relations with Macquarie were strained. As time wore on the tension turned to antipathy and Bigge found himself more in sympathy with the exclusives of the squattocracy than with the Governor. Bigge was assiduous in assembling evidence in New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land, but he was far from judicious and impartial in his methods of collecting it and in the prejudicial conclusions he drew. His series of reports was published in 1822 and 1823. By that time Macquarie had resigned...'.Besides dealing with the question of Macquarie's competence, the three reports contain most important and detailed evidence about life and conditions in New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land in the early nineteenth century, at that crucial point when the colony began to leave behind its penal past and look to the pioneer emigrant for its future. His reports were central to the political history of the period, and their influence can be seen in the later constitutional and political history of Australia.The three reports are:1. Report into the State of the Colony of New South Wales (Ferguson, 854; Wantrup 46n; amended House of Commons issue, 5 August 1822).2. Report on the Judicial Establishments of New South Wales, and Van Diemen's Land (Ferguson, 891; Wantrup, 47; House of Commons, i.e. first issue, 21 February 1823).3. Report on the State of Agriculture and Trade in the Colony of New South Wales (Ferguson, 892; Wantrup, 48; House of Commons, i.e. first issue, 13 March 1823).This is a well-associated set, inscribed by W. Archer at the start of one of the volumes "received these Reports from Lord Dacre through Mr. Fulwood in 1823. W. Archer". The set was later in the library of Rhodes House, Oxford, and has their cancelled library stamp in one volume.Ferguson, 854, 891-2; Spence, 'Bligh', p.12; Wantrup, 46-8.

      London: R. Pollard & Sons, 22 June 1822 [but 1823]. Aquatint, printed in colours and finished by hand, by James Pollard. Expertly restored, re- backed. 12 1/8 x 17 1/2 inches. 15 3/8 x 19 3/16 inches. A fine portrait of the winner of the 1822 Epsom Derby, engraved by James Pollard from his own original drawing. Moses is shown as preparations for the race get under way: the jockey (T. Goodisson) brings over the saddle to the bare- backed horse who is held by his groom. Moses' blankets have just been removed and a stable lad folds them neatly. James Pollard was the youngest son of the London engraver and print-seller Robert Pollard. He began work at the age of fifteen as a painter but quickly turned to engraving as well. In the 1820s his coaching scenes became both fashionable and lucrative. "A stream of coaching paintings followed, many of which he engraved himself. From 1821 he exhibited a small number of pictures at the Royal Academy and the British Institution which brought him more patrons. Between 1830 and 1840, Pollard also painted a number of racing pictures and some of the earliest scenes of steeplechasing on purpose-made courses, many recording the prowess of the few professional and more amateur riders of the day... [In all his work Pollard took great pains over accuracy, this is particularly true of his large scale works and] it is Pollard's large racing scenes which really take off and into which one can gaze and discover a microcosm of the turf" (Charles Lane British Racing Prints p.146) Lane British Racing Prints p.146; Selway James Pollard 1792-1867 p.48; Siltzer p.214.

As early as 1809, the publisher Ackermann had hired Combe to write the letterpress to accompany many of Rowlandson's most successful illustrations, including those for the final volume of the "Microcosm of London" and perhaps especially for the illustrations that resulted in the series of comic poetry for which Combe is still most famous, and which earned him his best-known nickname, Doctor Syntax: The Tour of Doctor Syntax, in Search of the Picturesque and its two sequels (1812, 1820, 1821), The English Dance of Death (1815, 1816), The Dance of Life (1817), and finally The History of Johnny Quae Genus, the Little Foundling of the Late Doctor Syntax (1822). "Combining light-hearted satire of William Gilpin's theory of the picturesque in art with a central character modelled on Cervantes' Don Quixote and Henry Fielding's Parson Adams, Combe created a lovable eccentric whose misadventures on the road structure the Tour. For over a century the many editions and numerous imitations of the Tour attested to the popularity of Combe's humorous hero."

        [Original Manuscript] List of Death Among the Late African Company Officers in the Settlements on the Gold Coast from the 1st of January 1812, to 1st of January 1822 Being a Period of Ten Years

      Gold Coast, 1822 Handwritten. Very Good. Cloth custom made portfolio. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Gold Coast, 1822. 4 pp. Manuscript ca. 34x21 cm (13x8 in). Manuscript with tears but no loss of text housed in a blue cloth custom made portfolio with a red gilt morocco label on front cover. In very good condition. This report by the Assistant Surgeon in the African Company of Merchants concerns the mortality rate among the Company's officers during a period of ten years (1812-1822) and includes a list of fifty people (indicating their names). The "Remarks" section explains the statistics: "The African Company Establishment when fully appointed consisted of forty-five commissioned and non commissioned European officers but during the period of time stated above, there was not more than thirty-five residing in the Settlements on a yearly average & the deaths among them being five annually on an average." Arthy also counts the number of the native workers of the Company: "170 non commissioned officers and private soldiers, and 334 artificers, labourers and labouresses", and states that the mortality amongst them "except on occasional visitations of the Small Pox, was generally at the rate of one percent per annum, and very rarely exceeded two percent". Arthy concludes that "there is much reason to believe that the Climate of the Gold Coast would be found considerably less destructive of the health and lives of Europeans than that of any other intertropical country round the world. In reality to decide this question, it does not seem necessary to enquire further that Sierra Leone, Charlestown, the Havannah, Surinam and Batavia, wherein the mortality among Europeans annually so excessive and lamentable and so generally known as might serve to remove all Doubts of the superior salubrity of the Climate of the Gold Coast to that of all other tropical countries". "The African Company of Merchants was a Chartered Company in the Gold Coast area of modern Ghana, in the coastal area where the Fante people lived. It was founded in 1752 and replaced the Royal African Company which was dissolved in that year. In 1817 the Company had signed a treaty of friendship that recognized Asante claims to sovereignty over large areas of the coast, including areas claimed by the Fante. The Company was abolished in 1821, as the slave trade had not been suppressed in these privately held areas. Authority over the area was given to Governor Charles MacCarthy, the governor of Sierra Leone, who was subsequently killed in the First Anglo-Asante War" (Wikipedia)..

      London: Printed by J. M'Creery, 1822.. 106,[2],[107] -118pp. Octavo. Contemporary (original?) polished green muslin over boards, edges rough- trimmed. Cloth lightly rubbed, otherwise a very good, crisp copy. An interesting copy, representing an intermediate issue of the first edition, with the title-leaf and list of Bentham's publications characteristic of the first issue of the first edition, but also containing the two supplements that usually appear in the later issue, conjoined with the first edition sheets with a new 1830 title- leaf bearing the imprint of Reynell as printer and Robert Howard as publisher. Bentham here optimistically proposes a simplified system of easily understood and administered laws in order to get rid of the legal profession and what he describes as the "demon of chicane." The supplements consist largely of responses in the form of correspondence from abroad to Bentham's proposal. Not in Goldsmiths or Kress. OCLC/Worldcat locates four copies of this configuration, nine with the 1830 second issue title leaf and supplements; and eight of the 1822 first issue without the supplements. NCBEL II:1883.

        Description of the Abbeys of Melrose, and Old Melrose, with Their Traditions [Fantastic Sir Walter Scott and Thomas Moore Association Copy]

      Edinburgh: Printed for the Author by J. Orphoot 1822, 2nd Improved Edition. () [i-iii],iv,[5],6-125pp. Very good. Octavo. Finely bound in polished green calf. Heavily gilt and blind panel design stamped to front and rear boards with gilt fleurons. Spine in 5 compartments, one compartment with title and remaining 4 stamped in gilt. Raised bands. Gilt dentelles to edges and insides of front and back boards. Some rubbing to spine and shelf wear to board edges. Corners slightly bumped. A.e.g. Internally clean with only occasional age toning . Folding frontis of Melrose Abbey. With the engraved bookplate of Sir Thomas Moore and the red morocco variant bookplate of Harold Murdock. **A fantastic association copy.** This copy not only belonged to the book's dedicatee, Sir Walter Scott, but it was presented by Scott in his hand to his contemporary and public "rival" Thomas Moore: "Thomas Moore from his affectionate friend, Walter Scott, Melrose Abbey, 31 October 1825" with Moore's signature. At the time of this inscription, Moore and Scott were both working on books, Scott his monumental 9 volume work on Napoleon and Moore his thin volume, Epicurean. By chance, both books were scheduled to be released on the same day in 1827. Worried that Epicurean would be lost in the publicity of Scott's Napoleon (which Moore had criticized), Moore published his book one day before Scott's (British Museum Satires 15440). This public "feud" was immortalized in an engraved cartoon, offered with this book, presenting both Moore and Scott, with their respective works, balanced on the scale of public opinion. Moore triumphantly displays the thin Epicurean to Scott, who although weighed down by his 9 volumes of Napoleon, has been bested by Moore in the "Balance of Public Favor". The book offered here was signed and presented to Moore by Scott at an important time in the relationship between the two authors, interestingly, at Melrose Abbey, the subject of this book and subject of Scott's poem, "The Lay of the Last Minstrel, Canto Second.". Signed by Sir Walter Scott and Thomas Moore. Fantastic Association Between Thomas Moore and Sir Walter Scott.

        Notice sur le voyage de M. Lelorrain, en Égypte; et Observations sur le zodiac circulaire de Denderah

      chez l'auteur Paris: chez l'auteur, 1822. Soft cover. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. . ,, . Tall 8vo. [21 x 13.5 cm], (3) ff., including half title, title and avis, [5]-92. Bound in original printed wrappers with engraved Egyptian-style vignette. Spine split. Some minor foxing, otherwise very good.First edition of an historically important volume describing the Dendera Affair, the Egyptian archaeological expedition of 1820 led by Saulnier, an antiquarian and treasure-hunter, and J.-B. Lelorrain, the master mason he hired to remove the bas-relief zodiac from Egypt's Temple of Dendera and smuggle it to Paris. Until it was overshadowed by Heinrich Schliemann's excavation and ransacking of ancient Troy in the 1870s, the Dendera Affair was Europe's most glamorous and notorious archaeological event.Since the Notice is an attempt to persuade the government of Louis XVIII to buy the zodiac, Saulnier concerned himself primarily with geopolitical intrigue: Lelorrain's voyage to Egypt, the numerous obstacles he had to overcome in order to return to France with his quarry, etc. The Notice also contains a detailed description of the zodiac itself, which was laid out in an unusual circular form: Saulnier identifies its figures and attempts an explanation of their history, mythological significance and complex symbolism. The zodiac was bought by Louis XVIII, and is today on display in the Louvre.* Buchwald, Engineering and Science, v. LXVI no. 4, pp. 21-31.

        Vue d'Agrigente, prise des Hauteurs

      Paris: [peint par Coignet d'après Michalon; Gravé par S.Himely; Imprimé par Sauniée], 1822. Aquatint engraving, coloured by hand. India paper mounted. 11 3/4 x 17 inches (approximately). 18 3/8 x 24 1/4 inches (approximately). From `Voyage pittoresque en Sicile': a very rare series of sublime views of some of the best preserved Greek temples in the world, beautifully hand-coloured and here in the rarest state with the plate on india paper mounted. Published in Paris between 1822 and 1826, Achille- Etienne Gigault de la Salle's `Voyage pittoresque en Sicile', was published in three forms: coloured, coloured before letters or, as here, on india paper, coloured and mounted. The work can now be seen as a showcase for the talents of the best landscape artists and aquatint engravers of the period. Agrigento is the capital of Agrigento provincia, near the southern coast of Sicily. The plateau site of the ancient city is extraordinarily rich in Greek remains. A wall, with remnants of eight gates, can be traced from the two northern peaks (the Rock of Athena and the hill of Girgenti) to the ridge that carried the south line of the city's defenses. An almost continuous sacred area along this ridge has been excavated to reveal Agrigento's most famous remains, its seven Doric temples. Cf. Abbey Travel I, 262, pl. 30; cf. Brunet V, 1379.

        PÈtition au Parlement Britannique

      Londres,: J. Barfield, Printer, 91, Wardour-Street, Soho, March, 1822.. Tall octavo, half-title, title with Wronski's printed Egyptian device, 59 pp., bookplate of First Earl Eldon, endpapers with printed notes on red paper including additional errata; a handsome copy in contemporary straight grain red morocco, gilt, fragment of early paper label to spine, chipped at base. First edition: an exquisite copy of this rare petition, a late but significant attempt to win the longitude prize.Wronski came from a Czech family settled in western Poland. In 1794 he served in Poland with Kosciuszko where he was taken prisoner by the Russian forces. He resigned his commission in 1798, studied in Germany for a few years, and then enlisted in the Polish Legion at Marseilles. Wronski was a prolific writer on all manner of subjects, but it was evidently scientific work to which he was drawn. He joined the Marseilles Observatory in 1803 and published widely on mathematics before moving to London in 1819.His great ambition while in London was to revolutionise the study of longitude and win for himself the famous Longitude Prize of £20,000, still unclaimed after more than a century. On arrival his instruments were detained by Customs, but he did eventually address the Board of Longitude but without any success. This work details his travails, and a significant part of this book is effectively a resumÈ of Wronski's qualifications, taking the form of a series of letters of support from his friends. Easily the most interesting part, however, is the second half of the book, a detailed assessment of the machinations of the Board of Longitude, making this book an interesting comparison with the more famous stoushes between the Board and earlier figures such as John Harrison and Thomas Mudge. Wronski ultimately failed in his attempt, at least in part because his skills were more theoretical than practical: he returned to the continent in 1823.With the bookplate of John Scott, first Earl of Eldon, and Lord Chancellor of Great Britain between 1801 and 1827.

      1822. first edition. A Tall Copy and RareWith the Lithographic Title-Page[CHALON, John James, illustrator]. Twenty Four Subjects Exhibiting the Costume of Paris, The Incidents taken from Nature, Designed and Drawn on Stone by J.J. Chalon. London: Published by Rodwell and Martin, 1822.First edition. Large folio (17 5/16 x 12 inches; 440 x 305 mm.). Lithographed title and twenty-four hand-colored lithographed plates. Plates printed by C. Hullmandel. The text is watermarked 1821 and the plates are watermarked J. Whatman 1817-1822.Contemporary black pebble-grain cloth expertly re-backed, re-cornered, and re-labled in black straight grain morocco to early nineteenth century style. With the contemporary bookplate of Laurence Currie. The twelfth plate “La Loueuse de Chaises” has a very small marginal paper flaw which is outside of the plate mark. Otherwise a most attractive, remarkably clean and vivid copy.The plates are captioned: “La Marchande de Tisanne;” “Les Bonnes;” “La Petite Fruitiere;” “La Dame du Café;” “Le Café;” “Les Tondeuses de Chiens;” “Les Brodeuses;” “L’Escamoteur;” “La Porte Cochère;” “Le Journal des Débats;” “Le Restaurant;” “La Loueuse de Chaises;” “Une Matinée aux Thuilleries;” “Le Marchand de Brioches;” “Le Porteur d’Eau;” “Le Petit Décrotteur;” “Le Marche aux Fleurs;” “La Prise de Tabac;” “Les Adieux;” “Les Dames de la Halle;” “Le Cimetiere du Pere la Chaise;” “Les Dames Artistes;” “La Charette du Blanchisseur;” and “La Marchande de Modes.”“According to Beraldi (XII, 232) this ‘very curious and rare album’ appeared as a small quarto in London. These plates, which are large folio in size, may represent a French issue of the work, though the English edition had captions in French. Jean-Jacques Chalon was a French artist born in Switzerland who eventually settled in England. His designs are by no means mere costume plates. Instead they are animated and faithful studies of Parisian manners and costumes in the years 1820 to 1822. There is hardly a touch of caricature, though the profiles of his personages have a family likeness which suggests a domesticated Girodet” (Ray)."Published in four parts. The plates show people of various occupations, shoeblacks, venders, politicians, and general scenes, etc" (Hiler).This copy is unusually tall: Abbey's copy measured 15 x 11 1/4 inches uncut, and lacked the lithographed title-page, as did Sadleir's (though Sadleir's copy was slightly larger than the copy under notice).Only three copies with the lithographed title-page have come to auction within last 31 years. Five copies only located in KVK/OCLC but the presence of the title page is not noted. Quite rare.Abbey, Travel, 108. Colas 588. Hiler, p. 156. Lipperheide 1185.

      Dublin: Christopher Bentham, 1822.. [2],9-184pp. plus five woodcut plates (including frontispiece). Titlepage vignette of a turtle. 16mo. Contemporary plain paper boards, printed paper spine label. Boards detached. Contemporary ink inscription on titlepage. Scattered light staining and foxing. In a half morocco box, good. This apocryphal voyage describes the adventures of George Philips, an imaginary Irishman who was supposed to have accompanied Lewis and Clark from St. Louis to the Pacific. "Imaginary experiences of an imaginary Irishman with the Lewis and Clark expedition, etc." - Howes. "As the expedition which Philips had now joined, was one from which much interesting information was expected concerning the interior of the American Continent, as well as much future advantage to the inhabitants of the United States, by establishing a commerce with the native Indians for their furs...Philips on his arrival at St. Louis, found Captains Lewis and Clarke the other commander and twenty-three robust active young men, who had volunteered to accompany them, two French watermen, an Interpreter and his wife, a hunter and a black servant, belonging to Captain Clarke." George Philips also had adventures in the West Indies, South America, Mexico, the Great Lakes, among the Esquimaux, and in Canada. He returned home to Ireland via Florida and the West Indies. The plates show the inside of an Indian hut, the falls of Niagara, a meeting with Esquimaux, a view of icebergs, and others. The latter part of the narrative seems to lean on Sir John Franklin's first voyage, which had been published in 1819. The editors of the LITERATURE OF THE LEWIS AND CLARK EXPEDITION call the Philips narrative "an entirely new and quite wonderful fabricated account," discussing it at length. A fascinating and little-known work, evidently quite rare. HOWES P305, "aa." WAGNER-CAMP 21c:1. SABIN 62456. LITERATURE OF THE LEWIS AND CLARK EXPEDITION 4d.1. SERVIES 1129. CLARK II:174.

      [Cuba. ca. 1850s].. Oil on canvas, 13 1/2 x 23 1/2 inches. Excellent displayable condition. Framed. This attractive landscape painting depicting a Cuban sugar plantation was almost certainly executed by artist Charles DeWolf Brownell, in the mid to late 1850s. As would be customary with Brownell, who was greatly influenced by the artists of the Hudson River School, the image is dominated by the Cuban landscape of lush greenery, rolling hills, and blue sky, with the main buildings on the edges of the work. There are various types of trees dotting the landscape, as well as shrubs, a stone fence, and livestock. At the bottom of the painting a horse ridden by a black servant pulls a barranca-style carriage occupied by a woman in a pink dress. In the center a man in a white suit and hat walks up a hill toward the plantation house beside a horse carrying a similarly dressed man. Five of the plantation structures are depicted. The main house, a white two-story gabled building with a balcony, is on the far left. A woman stands in the doorway. On the far right of the painting is a slat- roofed building with a large billowing chimney and slaves at work. In the center of the image are three more buildings: a thatch-roofed hut filled with sugarcane, and two storage buildings. The sky is bright blue, with pillowy white clouds rolling by. Charles DeWolf Brownell (1822-1909) was born in Rhode Island and spent most of his adult life in Hartford and New York City. Trained as a lawyer, he abandoned the law out of conscience and turned to painting. He was greatly influenced by the Hudson River School, and his most notable works are landscape paintings. His maternal relatives, the DeWolfs, owned several sugar plantations in Cuba, and beginning in 1854, Charles Brownell spent seven consecutive winters on the island. He returned to Cuba several times over the ensuing decades. He traveled throughout the island, boarding in several plantations. Inspired by the Cuban landscape, he created a number of paintings of the island, including portraits of plantations done as commissions to help pay his expenses. In his diary Brownell notes that these commissioned paintings usually brought between forty and sixty dollars. The present work, painted in oil on a relatively modest size canvas, is in keeping with the style and form of these other works. A 1991 Kennedy Gallery exhibition catalogue of Brownell's work notes that these paintings of Cuban plantations survive in only a small number. A fine representation of mid-19th- century Cuban plantation life. Early paintings of Cuba are rare. Kennedy Galleries, CHARLES DeWOLF BROWNELL (1822-1909), EXPLORER OF THE AMERICAN LANDSCAPE, March 1991.

        Veduta del Ponte Molle sul Tevere due miglia lontano da Roma. Questo Ponte e stato ristaurato, e costruito l'Arco Trionfale A..dal Sommo Pontefice PIO VII. Regnante

      Rome.. 1822.. Copperplate engraving, 18 x 24 1/2 inches on sheet size 19 x 25 1/4. A couple of soft creases to the paper, short edge tears, pinhole in upper left and right corners and lower left corner. Narrow margins. Image in very good condition; a rich impression. View of Ponte Molle over the Tevere (Tiber), two miles from Rome. This impressive engraving by Luigi Rossini (1790-1857) is from the Le Antichita Romane series, depicting the antiquities of Rome and environs. Carrying on the tradition of Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720-1778) and himself an architect, Rossini's prints celebrated the Classical Tradition and appealed to the well-to-do tourists on the Grand Tour and to architects and designers. The engravings powerfully evoke the glories of Ancient Rome, while also providing the modern viewer with glimpses of this magnificent city in the early 19th century. .
