        Stories After Nature

      London: T. and J. Allman; and C. and J. Oliver, 1822, 1822. First edition. NCBEL III, 406. Lacking the front free endpaper; paper spine and edges repaired; very good copy, enclosed in a quarter morocco clamshell box.. 12mo, original tan paper spine, blue paper boards and printed paper label, untrimmed. The rare first book by Charles Jeremiah Wells (1800?-1879), a collection of 19 stories published privately at his expense. They show the strong influence of John Keats, Wells' friend and whose literary style he emulated. This work, as well as Wells' second and last book, Joseph and His Brethren (1824), were almost completely ignored during his lifetime, and it was not until decades after he had given up writing, that Swinburne, Forman, Gosse, Linton and others tried to rejuvenate interest in his writings by reprinting the two works. Gosse described Stories from Nature as "a curious little volume of brocaded prose." Stories from Nature is rare in institutions and the trade. OCLC records nine copies and only one copy is recorded at auction in American Book Prices Current in the last 100 years: this one.

        De l'amour EDITION ORIGINALE

      Paris: Librairie universelle de P. Mongie l'aîné, 1822. Fine. Librairie universelle de P. Mongie l'aîné, Paris 1822, 10,5x17cm, 2 volumes reliés en 1. - 2 volumes in 1. The first edition of only 150 copies, rare and very sought-after (Clouzot), of this essay written by Stendhal in Milan after his meeting in 1818 with Mathilde Dembrowski (1790-1825), the woman he loved the most sincerely and whom he never saw again after her departure from Italy in 1821. She features in the work under the name of Léonore. Contemporary half caramel calf over speckled paper boards, restored. Re-backed to match original, the spine with gilt and blindstamped fillets, marbled pastedowns and endpapers. Lacking final leaf with printed titles to cut out. An important copy, presented by Stendhal to Paul-Émile Daurand Forgues (known as 'Old Nick', 1813-1883). His son, Eugène Daurand-Forgues, added a note on one of the endpapers (along with his ex libris): "This copy is the one mentioned in the letter from Beyle to E.D. Forgues on the 29th January 1842." In this letter, Stendhal wrote: "The paper will be less horrid once you've had the volumes bound and knocked them about a bit. My indifference to my share made me hand in the manuscript and not worry about the quality of the paper. I'm afraid M. Buloz won't get rid of the printer - they told me three years ago he was jealous." It is easy to be surprised by the author's remarks on the quality of the paper, since the book was printed on vergé. Along with this letter, sent two months before his death to his friend Paul-Émile Daurand Forgues, Stendhal sent - as a sort of testament - the present copy of De l'Amour [On love].  The letter is published in la Pléiade's edition of Stendhal's Correspondance III, pp. 514-515 ; see also Lucien Pinvert, Un ami de Stendhal, le critique E. D. Forgues, Paris, Leclerc, 1915, pp. 19-20. Stendhal and Daurand Forgues met at the Cercle des Arts, established in 1836 by Prosper Mérimée and his friends. In charge of the literature section of the liberal newspaper Le Commerce under the pseudonym of Old Nick, the young critic supported Stendhal's novels and the two men became friends. The writer also presented him with an inscribed copy of La Chartreuse de Parme. A very attractive copy with a remarkable provenance.  - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Édition originale imprimée à seulement 150 exemplaires, rare et très recherchée d'après Clouzot, de cet essai que Stendhal composa à Milan après sa rencontre en 1818 avec Mathilde Dembowski (1790-1825), la femme qu'il aima le plus passionnément et qu'il ne dut jamais revoir après son départ d'Italie en 1821 ; on la retrouve dans le livre sous le nom de Léonore.   Reliure en demi veau caramel, dos lisse orné de filets dorés et à froid refait à l'identique, plats de papier moucheté, contreplats et gardes de papier à la cuve, reliure restaurée de l'époque. Sans le dernier feuillet contenant les pièces de titre imprimées à découper.   Précieux exemplaire offert par Stendhal à Paul-Émile Daurand Forgues, dit Old Nick (1813-1883). Son fils, Eugène Daurand-Forgues, a ajouté une note sur une garde du volume, qui porte également son ex-libris : « Cet exemplaire est celui dont il est question dans la lettre de Beyle à E. D. Forgues, du 29 janvier 1842 ». Dans cette lettre, Stendhal écrivait : « Le papier sera moins laid quand vous aurez fait relier et bien battre les volumes. L'indifférence que j'avais pour les intérêts me fit donner le manuscrit et ne pas surveiller la qualité du papier. Je crains que M. Buloz ne détourne l'imprimeur on me dit, il y a trois ans, qu'il était jaloux. » On s'étonne de ces remarques de l'écrivain sur la qualité du papier, le livre étant imprimé sur vergé. A cette lettre, envoyée deux mois avant sa mort à son ami Paul-émile Daurand Forgues, Stendhal avait donc joint, dans un élan testamentaire, le présent exemplaire de De l'Amour. La lettre est reproduite dans l'édition de la Pléiade : Correspondance III, p. 514-515 ; voir aussi Lucien Pinvert, Un ami de Stendhal, le critique E. D. Forgues, Paris, Leclerc, 1915, p. 19-20.   Stendhal et Daurand Forgues s'étaient rencontrés au Cercle des Arts, fondé en 1836 par Prosper Mérimée et ses amis. Chargé de la chronique littéraire dans le journal libéral Le Commerce sous le pseudonyme d'Old Nick, le jeune critique avait soutenu les romans de son aîné et les deux hommes s'étaient liés d'amitié. L'écrivain lui offrit également un exemplaire dédicacé de La Chartreuse de Parme.   Très bel exemplaire, d'une remarquable provenance.

        Roland furieux

      1822. relié. Bon état. Paris, chez Nepveu et Aimé André, 1822. 3 volumes in/8 reliure en plein maroquin rouge signé Niedré, dos à nerfs à caissons dorés, plats à triples filets dorés, doré toutes tranches, double filets sur les coupes, dentelle intérieure, vol1 : frontispice, xliii ff, 1 fac-similé d’un autographe d’Arioste, 2 vignettes, 36 planche, 463 p. - vol2 : 31 planches, 480 p. - vol.3 : 27 planches, 486 p. Beaux exemplaires avec de très rares rousseurs, Le relieur Niedree fut distingué pour son travail en 1844. Il était réputé pour ses reliures de style Renaissance ; “la conservation des marges était pour lui l’objet des plus grands soins.” Orlando Furioso, ou Roland furieux est un poème épique de 40 chants, écrit par Ludovico Ariosto, dit en français l'Arioste, écrit au début du XVIe siècle, le Cinquecento italien, il sera publié en 1516. S'inscrivant dans le cycle carolingien comme un lointain descendant de la Chanson de Roland (ou Chanson de Roncevaux) et présenté, à sa sortie, comme une suite de l'Orlando Innamorato (Roland amoureux) de Matteo Maria Boiardo. Le poème fut écrit en ferrarais, le dialecte utilisé à Ferrare, puis l'Arioste lui-même l'adapta en toscan littéraire, afin qu'il soit plus accessible pour le reste de l'Italie. Roger et Bradamante y sont présentés comme les ancêtres légendaires des ducs de Ferrare, et donc du cardinal Alphonse d'Este qui était le protecteur de l'Arioste et sans doute le commanditaire du livre.

These were translated into English by Frederic Shoberl and published in one volume as Illustrations of Japan (1822), the basis for the present Dutch translation.

        [Herbarium].[Paris (collected in Egypt, Abyssinia, China, the Americas, New Caledonia and elsewhere), ca. 1840-ca. 1868]. About 250 pressed and dried botanical specimens, mounted on paper leaves (mostly about 42 x 26 cm), some with partly printed and others with manuscript labels. With a signed autograph letter from Jaubert in Grenoble to the Italian botanist Eugène de Reboul in Florence, a photographic portrait of Jaubert, a green painted ferrous metal collecting canister (10 x 14 x 36 cm) and a wooden plant press with leather and metal fittings (29 x 22.5 x 5 cm).The leaves with specimens are loosely inserted in 42 paper folders, the whole kept in a contemporary ferrous metal chest with built-in lock (key also present), painted with a light brown wood-grain pattern (34 x 32 x 50 cm). The lock on the trunk has the maker's stamp of John Bates in Wolverhampton, England, who was active in the 1860s, and the metal handle of the press has the stamp of its manufacturer "R & L" in Paris.

      For Jaubert and his botanical work: Stafleu & Cowan, II, pp. 427-428. An extensive herbarium comprising about 250 pressed and dried botanical specimens, often with a small packet of seeds attached. They were collected by or for Jaubert, mostly in the 1840s and 1850s, many in exotic lands, including Egypt, Abyssinia, China, South America, Cuba and New Caledonia. The dates on the labels range from 1822 to 1868, but most appear to have been collected in the 1840s and 1850s, when Jaubert was publishing his Illustrationes plantarum orientalium . Nineteen specimens (in 3 folders) cover the genus Nicotina, the tobacco family. Besides the specimens themselves, the collection includes a collecting tin and a wooden plant press. Parts of Jaubert's herbarium are preserved at the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris, with some duplicates at the Conservatoire at Jardin Botanique in Geneva.Parts of many specimens have inevitably broken over the years, but most nevertheless survive in good condition. The paper leaves and folders show occasional water stains and a few have had a corner nibbled by mice, but they still remain in good condition. An extensive herbarium, completed around 1868, with about 250 specimens.

        4 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Zus. 14 S., 8. Über den Freiherrn von Zedlitz u.a. - Der Vater der geb. Emilie Henriette Adelheid von Gerschau (Pseudonym Ernst Ritter), Freiherr von Gerschau, war ein unehelicher Sohn des kurländischen Herzogs Peter von Biron und russischer Generalkonsul in Kopenhagen. Emilie wurde am Hof ihrer Tante, der Herzogin Wilhelmine von Sagan, aufgezogen und erhielt dort die bestmögliche Erziehung und Bildung. 1822 lernte sie August Daniel von Binzer kennen, der einer Einladung ihrer Tante zu einer literarisch-musischen Veranstaltung im Schloss gefolgt war. Nach ihrer Hochzeit noch im selben Jahr lebte das Ehepaar u. a. in Venedig, Köln, Leipzig (wo August Daniel von Binzer als Redakteur für die Zeitung für die elegante Welt arbeitete), kurz in Augsburg und schließlich übersiedelte die Familie 1845 nach Wien. Die Dame des Hauses führte, so wie bereits zuvor in Leipzig, einen biedermeierlichen Salon, in dem Künstler, Literaten und Politiker ein und aus gingen. Das mit Freiherr von Zedlitz befreundete Ehepaar beschloss an einem österreichischen Alpensee gemeinsam ein Haus zu bauen. Die Wahl fiel auf Altaussee, wo im Jahr 1847 mit dem Bau des Seehauses (später Parkhotel) begonnen wurde. Im Jahr 1848 folgte das Ehepaar Adalbert Stifter nach Linz, wo sie im Winter das Eckhaus Promenade Klammstraße bewohnten, im Sommer aber in Altaussee lebten. Ihr Salon wurde hier der Treffpunkt der Linzer Gesellschaft sowie gehobener Wiener Gäste. Emilie von Binzer schrieb einige Werke, welche auch am Burgtheater aufgeführt wurden und stand Erzherzog Maximilian literarisch beratend zur Seite. Dieser besuchte sie noch kurz vor seiner Abreise nach Mexiko und sie erhielt nach seiner Hinrichtung einen Abschiedsbrief. Nachdem 1868 ihr Gatte und auch Adalbert Stifter verstorben waren übersiedelte sie zu einem ihrer Söhne nach München, wo sie im 90. Lebensjahr verstarb (Wikipedia). - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. -

        Recueil de poèmes, d'histoires drôles et de proverbes (signés ?T.S.V.J?). Document manuscrit (France, XIXe).

      S.d. (vers 1822), - in-8°, 128 p. n.n. (dont 59 blanches), calligraphie sobre et bien lisible, quelques ratures (améliorations) dans le texte, deux ex libris ms. au crayon ?Marc. Ech.? et ?Rossier? (?), cartonnage en papier marbré caillouté à veines, passablement frotté, dos abîmé, tranches vertes. Curieux document extrêmement intéressant contenant 7 proverbes, 3 contes humoristiques grivois, 18 compositions poétiques de style et de longueur variables (dont 2 avec air, typiques du Vaudeville), ainsi qu'une composition de 20 pièces poétiques intitulée «Bobêche», dont le sous-titre du premier poème indique ?de Gaspard Lavisé? La grande majorité des compositions sont signées ?T.S.V.J? et sont très certainement de sa main, puisqu'il ne s'est pas privé, à certains endroits, de biffer et d'introduire des variantes dans ses textes. Une pièce intitulée ?Chansons? est visiblement d'une autre main et est signée ?L.B. 1822? A côté de certains poèmes sérieux (qui ne sont pas les mieux réussis) comme ?Romance de Marie Stuart retournant en Ecosse?, d'autres sont d'une veine typiquement satyrique: ?Surprise de Louis XVIII? (composition qui se moque de la fuite du roi devant Bonaparte en 1815) ou ?Chapitre Général des Cordeliers? (qui tourne en dérision l'Assemblée générale de cet ordre religieux). D'autres compositions sont liées au vaudeville en tant que chansons ou tirades théâtrales (Bobêche, par exemple). Outre ces poèmes, les proverbes sont très amusants et sont imprégnés de sagesse (et grivoiserie!) campagnarde: ?Méfiance - Du devant d'une femme - Du derrière d'une mule - De tous les côtés du puits? La grossièreté un peu naïve des 3 contes humoristiques ne manquait pas de faire sourire l'audience des tavernes ou des convives d'un repas bien arrosé: ?Deux jeunes filles s'entretenaient un jour & se demandaient de quoi était confectionné l'objet de leur affection, l'une disait que ce devait être un os, l'autre un boyau ou un oeuf. Après s'être assez combattues sur ce sujet, la première qui en avait bien tâté, conclu(t) par ces paroles: ?Je suis sûre que j'ai raison parce qu'il est tombé beaucoup de moëlle sur mes sabots?.Please notify before visiting to see a book.

        Egypt, Nubia, and Ethiopia. Illustrated by One Hundred Stereoscopic Photographs, Taken by Francis Frith for Messrs. Negretti and Zambra.

      London: Smith, Elder and Co., 65, Cornhill, M.DCCC.LXII. - 4to, original blind-stamped maroon cloth, gilt-stamped upper cover and spine with ibis and flower ornament, a.e.g. 240 pp., 100 stereographic photographs on printed mounts. A beautifully designed volume illustrated with a splendid series of one hundred stereographic photographs of ancient ruins.British photographer Francis Frith (1822-1898) made three trips to the Holy Land between 1856 and 1859. His photographs, many of them masterful works that established him as a major photographer, sought to confirm the historical authenticity of the places, and by extension, the events, recorded in the BibleÑa response to current debates involving science and religion, offering more 'factual' photographic images in contrast to such romantic works as the lithographs of David Roberts. Frith also viewed his documentary efforts as an act of preservation, noting that 'in addition to the corroding tooth of Time and the ceaseless drifting of the remorseless sand, Temples and Tombs are exposed to continued plundering.' (Egypt and Palestine Photographed and Described).The stereoviews included in this volume were taken during Frith's third expedition to the region. The accompanying texts are by eminent Egyptologist Joseph Bonomi, both a scholar and a draftsman, and Rev. Samuel Sharpe, an author with several books on Egyptian history to his credit. The book was warmly received by contemporary reviewers, the Photographic Journal proclaiming it 'the most magnificent book of the season.a marvel of tyopgraphic and illustrative art' and the Art Journal describing it as 'an intellectual feast.spread before us at a cost of travel and thought not to be lightly valued.' The publishers of Frith's stereoviews, Negretti and Zambra, displayed the book at the International Exhibition of 1862, where it won a medal for 'effective adaptation of stereo photography to book illustration' (Nickel). Negretti and Zambra sold 'Stereoscopes specially adapted for use with this volume, compactly folded in an elegant pocket-book form, fit for the drawing room table,' an advertising slip for which is bound-in at the title page. 'The books of Francis Frith inaugurated the first golden age of albumen-silver photographic illustration (1860-80) during which photographs of great visual strength were supplemented by supportive texts that were decidedly subordinate to the photographs. One of the most outspoken on the esthetics of photography, Frith was among the first photographers to successfully seize the opportunity of using the recently perfected glass-negative and albumen print process to establish a reputation as a master photographic book illustratorÉDuring September, 1856 to July, 1857, he journeyed to Egypt, Palestine, and Syria, where he made full-plate and stereo negatives' (Truthful Lens, p. 30).REFERENCES: Gernsheim, Incunablua, 172; Nickel, Douglas. Francis Frith in Egypt and Palestine, p. 82.CONDITION: Very good, re-hinged, minor rubbing; a lovely, bright copy. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Travels in Syria and the Holy Land Published by the Association for Promoting the Discovery of the Interior Parts of Africa.

      John Murray, London 1822 - xxiii 668 pp., half-title, lithographed portrait frontispiece, 6 engraved plates & maps (2 folding), unobtrusive blindstamp on a few leaves of text, and maps, shelfmark on spine, Bookplate of Bath Municipal Library on front fly leaf, copy clean & in very good condition, edited by William Leake. Johann Ludwig (John Lewis) Burckhardt (1784 - 1817), Swiss traveller and orientalist, published five works; Travels in Nubia (1819), Travels in Syria and the Holy Land (1822), Travels in Arabia (1829), Arabic Proverbs, or the Manners and Customs of the Modern Egyptians (1830), and Notes on the Bedouins and Wahabys (1831). Burckhardt describes in this work various journeys in Syria during 1810 and 1816. It was at Aleppo that he studied Arabic in preparation for his later travels in the Middle East. He was the first European to visit Petra. Burckhardt had been recruited by Sir Joseph Banks on behalf of the African Association to carry out these explorations, but unfortunately, in 1819 he died of dysentery at Cairo when about to start a new journey into the interior of Africa.

Two vols. Small 8vo, fine cont. dark blue sheep, sides bordered in gilt, flat spines nicely gilt, a.e.g. Berlin: Maurer, 1822-23. First edition and the prettiest set imaginable of this extremely rare German bookbinding manual. An invaluable introduction to bookbinding practices of the early 19th century, it is one of the most extensive manuals of the period. Greve (b. 1787), a native of Copenhagen, was a bookbinder and worker in pasteboard in Berlin. The great technologist Hermbstädt (1760-1833), the first chemist in Germany to adopt Lavoisier's views and professor of technological chemistry at the University of Berlin, has contributed a valuable Foreword and many notes. The first volume is concerned with bookbinding techniques and the author describes materials and tools used, methods of dyeing leathers and marbling paper, styles of decoration, etc. The plates depict tools, presses, etc. Plate 3 contains illustrations of hundreds of decorative devices for tooling. The second volume describes methods of making boxes, including some for bindings. At the end is a very extensive index to both volumes. Pages iii-vi in Vol. I and pages i-iv in Vol. II contain a list of subscribers (mostly bookbinders and book dealers in Germany and in German-speaking Czechoslovakia). This provides an invaluable list of provincial bookbinders. Our set also contains Greve's advertisements for his bookbinding and gilding services, bookbinding "kits," binding materials, and specialist papers. A lovely and fresh set. ❧ Pollard & Potter, Early Bookbinding Manuals, 36.

        Tyranny Unmasked. Only Edition. Washington City, 1822

      1822 - An Important Southern Voice in the Political Debates That Followed the War of 1812 Taylor, John, Of Caroline [1753-1824]. Tyranny Unmasked. Washington City [DC]: Printed and Published by Davis and Force, 1822. 349 pp. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5"). Recent period-style calf, blind panels to boards, lettering piece and gilt fillets to spine, endpapers renewed. Moderate toning, light foxing in places, a few leaves have faint markings in pencil, two very faint tiny marks in pen to title page ("45549" and "c"). A handsome copy. $1,200. * Only edition. Taylor's work is an essential part of the political and intellectual history of the South, especially Southern constitutional theories used to justify secession. Tyranny Unmasked expands his theories of society, government and the U.S. Constitution introduced in An Inquiry Into the Principles and Policy of the Government of the United States (1814) and expanded in Construction Construed (1820). Tyranny Unmasked discusses the effect of the Constitution on social policies, particularly taxation, banking, tariffs, protectionism and currency. Along with many other Southerners, Taylor feared centralized national government, believing it would corrupt the virtue of the American people and upset the proper constitutional balance between state and federal authority.

        The Story of our first Parents, selected from Milton's Paradise Lost: For the use of young Persons ?

      John Murray ?, London 1822 - First edition. An abridgement for children of Milton's account of Adam and Eve, by the celebrated actress Sarah Siddons (1755-1831).Siddons' admiration for Milton was lifelong: 'By the age of ten she was already responsive to the poetry of Milton ? Perhaps his curious combination of sensuality and austerity gave particular satisfaction to this girl who, as a woman said that she feared to play Shakespeare's Cleopatra as she should be played'. After her official retirement in 1813, Siddons gave frequent dramatic readings of Milton and Shakespeare - as represented by Lawrence's portrait of her with works by both authors -and Paradise Lost was her preferred text. Manvell suggests that Milton's 'strong dramatic sense and the grandeur of his rhetoric must have excited her', but Siddons also saw the merits of his material for a juvenile audience. As she describes in the Preface to the present work, she completed her abridgements for the use of her own children that they might develop 'an early admiration' of Milton, and now chooses to issue them for public consumption.The work provoked particular invective from the London Magazine, which acknowledged Siddons' greatness but was aggravated by her Miltonian foray: 'could she really condescend to become an authoress on the strength of an eighteen-penny copy of paradise lost and a pair of scissors?' The reviewer accuses John Murray of being blinded by Siddons' fame in his agreement to publish the work. The Story of our first Parents was issued in the same year under the separate title, Abridgement of Paradise Lost, which is identical in every other respect. Perhaps the variants were intended to appeal to separate adult and juvenile audiences. 8vo (211 x 133 mm), pp. iv, 190; light foxing to prelims; contemporary full polished calf, gilt in compartments with contrasting label; joints repaired; contemporary dedication inscription to front pastedown: 'Jane Wowen Feilde / the gift of / Mrs Yorke'.

      Roma 1822 - 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
