        Confessions of an English Opium-Eater

      London: Printed for Taylor and Hessey, 1822 - "Oh! Just, Subtle, And Mighty Opium!"A Fine and Elaborate Early Twentieth Century Binding by Bayntun of Bath[DE QUINCEY, Thomas]. BAYNTUN, binder. Confessions of an English Opium Eater. London: Printed for Taylor and Hessey, 1822. First edition in book form. Large twelvemo (6 7/8 x 4 inches; 176 x 101 mm). vi, 206 pp. including half-title. Leaf E 12 (pp. 95/96) expertly and almost invisibly extended at fore-margin, not affecting text.Bound c. 1920 by "Bayntun. Binder. Bath. Eng." (stamp-signed in gilt on front turn-in). Full crimson crushed Levant morocco, covers with double gilt ruled borders enclosing an elaborate floral design in gilt and also lettered in gilt. Spine with five raised bands decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt in compartments, decorative gilt board-edges and wide turn-ins, red watered silk liners and end-leaves, top edge gilt, others uncut. A fine and attractive example.Confessions of an English Opium-Eater (1821) is the classic autobiographical narrative written by Thomas De Quincey (1785-1859) concerning his laudanum (tincture of opium) addiction and its effect on his life. The Confessions was "the first major work De Quincey published and the one which won him fame almost overnight."First published anonymously in September and October 1821 in the London Magazine, the Confessions was released in book form in 1822, and again in 1856, in an edition revised by De Quincey."De Quincey's study of his own opium addiction and its psychological effects traces how childhood and youthful experiences are transformed, under the influence of opium, into symbolical and revealing dreams. The central experience for subsequent dream-formations was his childhood loss of his sister, duplicated by the disappearance of the 15-year-old prostitute Ann, who befriended him during his months of homeless near-starvation in London. The euphoric reveries of the early stages of his addiction and the appalling nightmares of the later stages are described in sonorous and haunting prose, and the work, first appearing in the London Magazine in 1821, conferred instant literary fame on De Quincey, whose first book it was. In 1856 he greatly extended the Confessions for a collected edition of his works, but thereby blunted its effect" (The Oxford Companion to English Literature)."This is the first edition of the first part of the book; the complete text first appeared in Boston in 1850 and in London in 1856" (Tinker).Ashley Library II, p. 37.

        A geographical panorama : exhibiting characteristic representations of the scenery and inhabitants of various regions.

      A very rare toy for children with exquisite aquatint renderings of scenes from around the globe, including views of Oonalaska (after Webber) and the Society Islands (after Parkinson) from Cook's voyages.  London : Harvey and Darton, 1822. Mahogany box, 300 x 260 x 90 mm, sliding lid with engraved title sheet (worn), the underside of which is engraved with 8 grooves for inserting the pieces of the diorama, the box containing two mahogany support struts with brass fittings that insert into the brass clips on the body of the box, three sheets of card (one folding) which are placed into the mahogany struts to form a proscenium arch through which one can view the diorama. There are nine background scenes printed in colour aquatint, and 18 (of 21) diecut images, all of which are inserted into the grooves of the wooden base to form a diorama of a scene from a particular part of the world. The printed instructions are provided in facsimile. The backdrops are somewhat generic, allowing them to be used in a number of different compositions. In the explanatory leaflet, the scenes and figures are described as follows: I. the Desert of Arabia; II. Hindostan; III. A stormy sky (with detail of Captain William Parry's ship in Baffin Bay; alternatively M. de Saussure ascending Mont Blanc); IV. China; V. A calm sea (with detail of a canoe in Oonalaska; the shooting of walruses and a polar bear, all after Webber's illustrations for Cook's third voyage); VI. the Society Islands (with detail after Parkinson's illustrations for Cook's first voyage); VII. the mountains of Dofrafeld (Scandinavia); VIII. the Acropolis of Athens; IX. Lapland (with detail of figures from Kamchatka). Originally sold at the advertised price of £3 3s, this elaborate and very expensive toy theatre would have been the preserve of only the wealthiest families in Georgian England. The instructions explain that the theatre is shown to best effect by candlelight; the candles were to be placed behind the cardboard wings at the sides, with the flickering ambient light creating a quasi-cinematic effect. A scorch mark to one of the struts is a tell-tale sign that the original owners of the theatre did indeed deploy lit candles to enhance the effect of the display. Authorship has been attributed to Maria Hack, recognised as a frequent collaborator of Darton, and the artwork for the aquatints to her daughter, Elizabeth Barton Hack. The imagery draws heavily from other printed sources, including engravings illustrating the voyages of Captain James Cook. One of the die-cuts in the first scene is replicated as the frontispiece to volume one of Maria Hack's Winter Evenings, or Tales of Travellers (London : Darton & Harvey, 1818), which does strongly suggest that the Hacks were the creators of A geographical panorama. As with most children's games from the Georgian period, few examples have survived; those that have tend to be incomplete. The present example is substantially complete, lacking only a few of the die-cut components, while the instructions are provided in facsimile. This toy theatre was unknown to Beddie, and is not noted in any other Pacific voyages bibliography; no example is held in any Australian collection. References : Shefrin, Jill.

        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.

        [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.
