        Histoire de la destruction de Moscou en 1812 [et des évènemens qui ont précédé, accompagné et suivi ce désastre.]

      [Paris, Ponthieu, 1822], in-8°, 3 feuillets non chiffrés, 236 pages (à partir de la page 160 il y a une erreur de pagination, on passe de la page 160 à la page 141 alors qu'il devrait être imprimé 161; à la fin la dernière page est numérotée 216 alors qu'il s'agit en fait de la page 236), cartonnage rouge de l'époque, dos lisse orné de filets dorés, coiffe inférieure abimée (voir photo). Un frontispice dépliant lithographié par Langlumé montre une vue de Moscou, prise du Kremlin. Il manque la page de titre. Publié peu après la parution de l'ouvrage de Rostopchine (Général en chef et Commandant en chef à Moscou en 1812) qui tente d'évacuer sa responsabilité dans l'incendie, cet ouvrage a été traduit par un ardent royaliste, Jean-Baptiste Joseph Breton de La Martinière. Le ton de l'ouvrage est très anti-napoléonien mais les détails donnés peuvent permettre de penser qu'il s'agit bien de l'oeuvre d'un témoin.

        Confessions of an English Opium-Eater

      London: Taylor and Hessey, 1822. First edition. [iii]-vi, 206 pp., lacking half-title and ads. 1 vols. 12mo. Contemporary half calf and marbled boards, red morocco spine label. Joints rubbed and starting, some light staining to text. Armorial bookplate of John Charrington. First edition. [iii]-vi, 206 pp., lacking half-title and ads. 1 vols. 12mo. The Classic of Opium Addiction. First edition of De Quincey's classic, the author's first book. "Thomas De Quincey began using opium in 1802 and continued to use it on and off, passing through no less than four opium crises, during the course of his life … From the very first the impact of the Confessions has been virtually incalculable. A genre of literature was at once established that stands to this day: the drug confession. Every writer of drug literature has paid his respects to De Quincey; and of course two of France's greatest poets Musset and Baudelaire, translated Confessions. Its literary quality has also caused De Quincey's first work to be placed in the top rank of English literature; its scientific precision has brought it to the attention of physicians and medical historians. The Confessions is among the classic works of English Romanticism, and yet it was decades before its author would dare put his name upon the title-page" (Horowitz). Confessions is divided into three parts: the first describes De Quincey's youth in Wales and London; the second, his first pleasurable experiments with opium use; and the third, a journal of nightmares and visions, now thought to have been brought on by withdrawal. De Quincey would expand the work to nearly twice its original length for his 1856 Collected Works - though the author privately confessed that the expanded edition lost the immediacy and force of the original. Bound-up copies often lack the half-title and are found with a variety of ad leaves: "it was a matter of pure chance whether [Opium-Eater] was boarded up with one, two, four or eight leaves, or none at all" (Carter, Taste & Technique, p. 104).

        Ocios sobre Bellas-Artes.

      Madrid, Imprenta de D.

Edition Originale. Recueil de 6 mémoires sur les beaux-arts par le peintre et critique d'art espagnol Juan Agustín Ceán Bermúdez (1749-1829), ami intime de Goya qui peignit son portrait et l'un des premiers théoriciens espagnols de la collection et de l'étude des œuvres d'art. "Ceán puede considerarse el fundador de la moderna historiografía del arte en España" (Portús Pérez). Les 6 parties dont se compose ce volume, dotées d'une page de titre et pagination séparées, semblent avoir été imprimées séparément et sont réunies ici sous un titre collectif. Ce sont des dialogues sur la peinture et la sculpture: "Diálogo entre el Cardenal D. Gaspar de Borja y Velasco y D. Juan Carreño de Miranda sobre el aprecio, suerte y paradero que tuvieron sus retratos desde que se pintaron hasta ahora" (Madrid, en la imprenta del Censor, 1820). "Bellas Artes : diálogo sobre la primacia entre la pintura y la escultura" (Madrid, León Amarita, 1822). "Bellas Artes: diálogo sobre el origen, formas y progresos de la Escultura en las naciones anteriores a los griegos" (Madrid, León Amarita, 1822). "Bellas Artes: diálogo sobre el estado de perfección a que llegó la escultura en Grecia" (Madrid, León Amarita, 1822). "Bellas Artes: diálogo sobre la escultura en la dominación de los romanos" (s.l.n.d.). Cette première édition, réimprimée en 1870, est d'une grande rareté. Nous n'avons pu localiser qu'un seul exemplaire, à la Biblioteca Nacional de Madrid (cf. WorldCat). Très bel exemplaire très pur dans sa couverture d'origine, à toutes marges et non coupé. Sur Ceán Bermúdez, cf. Portús Pérez, Enciclopedia del Museo del Prado. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        [Three complete sets of horse studies and two single plates.] Etudes de chevaux après nature. Paris, Gihaut, [1822-1823].

      1822. Folio (368 x 272 mm). 30 lithogr. plates, including one title page. Bound in contemp. oblong red half morocco, spine bearing giltstamped title "Chevaux et Voitures". Three series of Gericault's horse studies, each complete as published and in excellent impressions on strong wove paper (not watermarked), bound together with a hitherto unrecorded depiction of a sheikh on an Arabian horse. The first series, published as "Etudes de Chevaux lithographiés" in 1822, shows various horse races, including the Arabian horse as well as Egyptian, English, and French horses. "Cet ouvrage sera composé de trois livraisons, dont chacune contiendra quatre planches" (Beaux-arts de Paris). Second of at least four states throughout, stating the names of the artist and printer. The second series, published without a title in 1823, shows the various purposes for which horses are used (racehorses, military horses, cart horses and postillon horses, among others) and is complete as well with eight prints. The third series, likewise issued without a title in 1823, comprises seven prints depicting cavalry, trotters, a horse leaping over an obstacle, and a jockey on his horse, also including two oriental-themed plates: a lion devouring a horse and a fist-shaking "Giaour" (not from Géricault's Byron series). Three plates from this set are identified by Delteils as contemporary copies by Louis Courtin. The lithographed frontispiece of the first series was bound at the beginning of the present volume to serve as a title. The final leaves in this collection are the dead horse in the snow (an image inspired by Napoleon's Russian campaign) from Géricault's 1823 series "Quatre sujects divers" and a fine plate of a pistol-wielding Sheikh mounted on his Arabian steed, with an oriental desert settlement in the background (not recorded by Delteil). "Gericault est, sans conteste, un des plus grands peintres hippiques de son siècle [...] Les bonnes épreuves sont recherchées et et assez rares" (Mennessier de la Lance I, 545). - Of the utmost rarity: while the British Museum holds the complete suite of the first series, we were unable to trace any complete copies of the other suites contained in this sammelband. While numerous separate Gericault lithographs sold at recent auctions, realising up to £3000 each, not a single complete suite is listed in auction records of the last decades. - All prints are of exceptional quality, with rich contrast on superior paper, occasionally showing various degrees of foxing in the margins; a minute tear to the lower edge of the title leaf. Attractively bound in red half morocco with sparsely gilt spine. Altogether a beautiful copy in excellent, crisp condition. Delteil 46-57; 58-65; 66-72; 77.

      1822. Zusammen 6½ SS. 2 Briefe mit eh. Adresse. An Christiane Kestner: "Allzusehr bringst Du mich bei Dir in Schuld. Schon beim ersten Blick, den Dein Auge auf mich that, wurde ich Dein Schuldner, ich sah den Himmel! Was konnte ich Dir wieder zeigen? Nur den Abglanz Deines Auges konntest Du befreundet in mir wieder finden. Du bist so gut u. brav, jedermann sagt es mir [...]" (Br. v. 21. IX. 1822). - "Ungewiß ob Du nicht heute wieder eben so hart seyn würdest als vergangenen Mittwoch, wollte ich Dir schon heute am frühen Morgen schreiben, damit mir die Zeit dazu nicht fehlen möchte, wenn ich die Hoffnung verlohren, von Dir ein Wort zu erfahren, was ich so schmerzlich erwartet. Die Hand versagte mir aber den Dienst, meine Gedanken gingen im Wir[r]warr umher, u. ich wußte nicht wo anfangen noch aufhören. Wenn ich Dich nicht so liebte wie es uns möglich ist zu lieben, wenn ich fürchten könnte daß Du mich hättest mißverstehen können, so würde es mir nicht schwer fallen zu glauben Dich beleidigt zu haben [...]" (Br. v. 28. IX. 1822). - Der in Steinlah bei Hannover geborene Künstler studierte in Dresden, Rom und Florenz und wurde 1838 Professor der Kupferstechkunst an der Dresdner Akademie. "Neben einem Selbstbildnis (1826) gehören meisterliche Stiche nach Cranach, Dürer und Raffael zu seinen Werken" (DBE).

        The Life of Samuel Johnson, LL.D. Comprehending An Account of His Studies and Numerous Works, in Chronological Order; A Series of His Epistolary Correspondence and Conversations with Many Eminent Persons ...

      Printed for T. Cadell;, 1822. Four volumes, complete Quarto Extra illustrated with over 400 plates and autographs, including Johnson's signature affixed by frontispiece portrait of him; also with two autographs, Mrs. Piozzi (H. L. Thrale) and Mrs. Elizabeth Carter, both of whom were contemporaries of Johnson three-quarter levant green morocco over green cloth, spine with raised bands, extra gilt, lettered in gilt, top edges gilt others untrimmed, marbled endpapers, by Bayntun The volumes include a chronological catalouge of Johnson's works, each entry with a brief description. Samuel Johnson (18 September 1709 [O.S. 7 September] - 13 December 1784), often referred to as Dr. Johnson, was an English writer who made lasting contributions to English literature as a poet, essayist, moralist, literary critic, biographer, editor and lexicographer. Johnson was a devout Anglican and committed Tory, and has been described as "arguably the most distinguished man of letters in English history".[1] He is also the subject of "the most famous single biographical work in the whole of literature," James Boswell's Life of Samuel Johnson. Born in Lichfield, Staffordshire, Johnson attended Pembroke College, Oxford for just over a year, before his lack of funds forced him to leave. After working as a teacher, he moved to London, where he began to write for The Gentleman's Magazine. His early works include the biography Life of Mr Richard Savage, the poems London and The Vanity of Human Wishes, and the play Irene. After nine years of work, Johnson's A Dictionary of the English Language was published in 1755. It had a far-reaching effect on Modern English and has been described as "one of the greatest single achievements of scholarship". This work brought Johnson popularity and success. Until the completion of the Oxford English Dictionary 150 years later, Johnson's was viewed as the pre-eminent British dictionary. His later works included essays, an influential annotated edition of The Plays of William Shakespeare, and the widely read tale The History of Rasselas, Prince of Abissinia. In 1763, he befriended James Boswell, with whom he later travelled to Scotland; Johnson described their travels in A Journey to the Western Islands of Scotland. Towards the end of his life, he produced the massive and influential Lives of the Most Eminent English Poets, a collection of biographies and evaluations of 17th- and 18th-century poets. Johnson was a tall and robust man. His odd gestures and tics were disconcerting to some on first meeting him. Boswell's Life, along with other biographies, documented Johnson's behaviour and mannerisms in such detail that they have informed the posthumous diagnosis of Tourette syndrome, a condition not defined or diagnosed in the 18th century. After a series of illnesses, he died on the evening of 13 December 1784, and was buried in Westminster Abbey. In the years following his death, Johnson began to be recognised as having had a lasting effect on literary criticism, and he was claimed by some to be the only truly great critic of English literature Minimal rubbing of covers, interiors fine

      1822. 4to. 1¾ pp. Bifolium with integral address panel. To M. de Varennes, on behalf of an inquiery he had promised to do: "J'ai bien des excuses à vous faire d'avoir été si longtems à répondre à la lettre que vous m'avés fait l'honneur de m'écrire. J'avais fait de suite la moitié de votre commission: j'étais allé demander à M. Chénard quelle devrait être la force d'un appareil propre à l'usage auquel vous le destinés et il m'avait dit que pour produire un grand effet il fallait 150 à 160 couples de plaques de 3 ponces de diamètre sur deux. Cette instruction acquise, restait à m'enquérir des prix. J'étais alors occupé d'une distribution prochaine qui eut lieu à notre Ecole le dimanche 27 Janvier et quand j'ai eu le loisir nécessaire j'avais oublié d'achever mon entreprise : enfin, hier, Coulonuriers [?] et Ses bons habitans m'étant revenus à la mémoire, J'ai couru chez Demotiez lui demander le prix de l'appareil tel que M. Chénard me l'avait désigné. Démotiez m'a répondu que pour qu'il fut plus solidement établi il fallait le faire en quatre parties de 40 couples; qu'en donnant une plus grande longueur aux bois il pourrait arriver que le gonflement fît casser le mastic qui scelle les autres.
