        Autographed Manuscript Signed

      Geneva, NY: , 1823 Geneva, NY, 1823. unbound. Original detailed autographed manuscript signed, folio, 10 pages (front and back), 13 x 8 inches, Geneva, New York, May 20, 1823 -- an extensive draft describing an invention that was called "a machine for hulking and cleaning clover seed," a device that was granted a patent by the United States Government on March 18, 1824. Burrall explains in detail that his innovation is unique because previous models wasted much of the seed, worked slowly, and ran at a great expense because they required immense power to propel them. "The machine that I am about to describe is free from all the above. It is cheap, simple and durable - may be propelled to advantage, either by hand by horse or water power - it feeds regularly & equally - the seed is beaten or whipped out lightly and briskly, all the light chaff containing no seed is thrown off before it reaches the working part of the mechanism." Much more exceptional content. This manuscript has heavy natural folds, but is still in very good condition. Pioneer, settler, and inventor who owned extensive land in the City of Geneva, Ontario County, New York. Despite holding patents for such successful inventions as the thrashing machine, the corn planter, cooking stove, and corn sheller, it was his association with Joseph Smith that would bring him notoriety. Historians speculate that Smith, the Mormon prophet, acquired use of some of Burrall's lands by the Seneca/Ontario border and on September 22, 1823 found the "certain plates of gold which recorded the true history of the Church of the American continent," the result becoming the Book of Mormon. Joseph Smith's use of clover seed is well documented in John Heinerman's acclaimed books "Joseph Smith and Herbal Medicine" and "Joseph Smith and Natural Foods.

        Collection d'antiques - Toiles peintes - Masque en bois - Objets en terre cuite - diverses figures et amulettes en forme de scarabées - .

      Egitto 1823 - Tavola incisa all?aquaforte su lastra di rame, inserite nella monumentale opera Description de l?Egypte, II° edizione dal 1820-29 voluta da Luigi XVIII, importante risultato culturale dell?occupazione francese in Egitto per il periodo che va dal 1798 al 1801. Bonaparte decise di invadere queste terre per controllare le vie commerciali verso l?india ed assestare in questo modo un duro colpo all?economia britannica. Durante questa operazione, il Nostro favorì l?attività di numerosi artisti, ingegneri, matematici e naturalisti per registrare e catalogare con estrema precisione le costruzioni e i monumenti egiziani nonché la flora e la fauna. Il risultato di questo immane sforzo, che per la pubblicazione coinvolse quasi duemila tra artisti e tecnici oltre a quattrocento incisori, fu l?opera "Description de l?Egypte, ou recueil des observations et des recherches qui ont été faites en Egypte pendant l?expédition de l?armée française", che offre una globale visione scientifica dell?antico e moderno Egitto, nonché la sua storia naturale. La Description ebbe grande influenza sul movimento orientalista pittorico dell?ottocento e diede un contributo fondamentale alla diffusione dell?Egittologia.

Impression sur vergé, quelques rousseurs claires, plan dépliant du tracé de Longwood inséré dans le tome 1, la carte de Saint Hélène (qui était vendue toute seule, 3 fr. (sic.)) n'est pas présente dans notre exemplaire. Rien ne prédisposait le comte de Las Cases, aristocrate émigré à Londres pendant la Révolution, homme sans relief mais fidèle serviteur de l'Empire sur le tard, à écrire ce qui allait être le plus grand succès de librairie du XIXe siècle. Le mémorial de Sainte-Hélène - quatre éditions corrigées et augmentées entre la première en 1823 et celle de 1842, l'année de la mort de l'auteur - fut un événement politique considérable. Deux ans après avoir rendu son dernier souffle, le proscrit de 1815 reprenait vie sous la plume de son chambellan qui, pendant un peu plus d'un an, jusqu'à son expulsion de Sainte-Hélène à la fin de 1816, avait recueilli et consigné sur le papier les impériales confidences.A partir de la seconde édition parue la même année que l'originale l'Auteur apporta quelques retouches, notamment aux portraits des contemporains de l'Empereur, faisant preuve de complaisance vis à vis des survivants de l'épopée napoléonienne... Ensemble solide et en bon état.

        Diorama Anglais

      , 1823. 1823. Tom, Jerry, and Bob Logic en FrançaisIn a Magnificent 'Royal' Binding by René SimierMerci Buccups![CRUIKSHANK, George and Robert, illustrators]. EGAN, Pierce. Diorama Anglais, ou Promenades Pittoresques a Londres, Renfermant les Notes les plus Exactes sur les Caracteres, les Moeurs et usages de la Nation Anglaise, Prises dans les Differentes Classes de la Societe. Par M. S..... Ouvrage orné de vingt-quatre Planches Gravées et Enluminées, et de Plumieurs Sujets Caracteristiques. Paris: chez Jules Didot [and] Baudouin Frères, 1823. First edition in French of Egan's Life in London. Tall octavo (8 7/8 x 5 3/8 in; 227 x 139 mm). [4], 235, [1, blank] pp. Twenty-four hand-colored aquatint engravings, with tissue guards, after George and Robert Cruikshank, unsigned, but similar to those used in the English version of Egan's classic, which contained thirty-six plates. Bound by "grand-maitre" René Simier of Paris (stamp-signed at spine foot) in gilt-decorated contemporary full crimson straight-grained morocco with gilt "E" beneath gilt imperial crown to upper board: likely the copy of Eugene de Beauharnais (1781-1824), Duke of Leuchtenberg and Prince of Eichstadt, the adopted son of Napoleon and viceroy of Italy, or an aristocratic Elizabeth. Gilt rolls to board edges, gilt dentelles. All edges gilt. Upper wrapper preserved. Two wee wormholes along lower joint, otherwise a very fine copy. "By finding the right men [the Cruikshanks] for his work [Egan] made Life In London one the great successes of the day, comparable to that other triumphant alliance of humour and art in the pages of Dr Syntax" (Prideaux)."A journalist, and a well-known character in his day, [Pierce Egan] wrote nothing so popular as this Life in London. Indeed, the taste for it amounted to a craze. For his illustrations, Egan went to two brothers, Isaac Robert and George Cruikshank…the success of the work was so great that the artists could not colour the engravings fast enough for the demand. It suited the taste of the time, when a ‘fast’ life had become a sophisticated and conscious aim. Life in London is a guide to a fast life.…Part of the success enjoyed by [Pierce Egan’s Life in London] was due, no doubt, to its readers’ belief that they could name the originals of the fictitious characters. Imitations came swift and frequent…" (The Cambridge History of English and American Literature ).René Simier (1772-1843) was one of the major French bookbinders of the 19th century along with Jean-Georges Purgold and Joseph Thouvenin. He should not be confused with his son, Alphonse, who led the bindery from 1823 until 1848. Born in Sarthe May 20, 1772, he was first a worker in a printing region, before settling in Paris, certainly in 1796. He developed a highly significant reputation, and became bookbinder to the Empress Marie-Louise and the king, as well as Louis-Philippe. He was deeply involved in the technical and aesthetic evolution of bookbinding, Cohn 263.

      London: John Murray, 1823.. London: John Murray, 1823.. iii-xvi,768pp., plus thirty plates (eleven in color) and four folding maps. Quarto. Mid-19th-century three-quarter morocco and marbled boards. Corners scuffed, joints rubbed. Bookplate of Henry Marquand on the front free endpaper. Scattered foxing, occasional offsetting. Text and maps are clean and bright. Overall a very good, attractive copy. With the errata slip not found with all copies. The plates in this copy are bound as detailed on the list of illustrations, entirely in the text, with no plate as a frontispiece. The narrative of Franklin's first expedition of 1819- 22. Franklin, along with naturalist Dr. John Richardson, was appointed to lead an expedition overland from Hudson Bay to east of the mouth of the Copper-Mine River for the purposes of establishing the latitudes and longitudes of the northern coast of America, developing a correct geographical description of the country, and searching for a northwest passage. Franklin's narrative includes a great deal of detail regarding the country, native Indians, the murder of Robert Hood, and the disappointment in failing to find a passage. Sabin calls the appendix "valuable" in its contribution to the knowledge of natural history in the area. The handsome plates include illustrations of the native Indians and Eskimos (many of them attractively colored), artifacts, types of fish, and ships at sea. "'The views of Arctic scenery with which these volumes are both illustrated and embellished, are of extreme beauty.' - QUARTERLY REVIEW" - Sabin. Two issues were published of this first volume, both in 1823. The present issue is the first, since it contains an errata slip listing changes which were incorporated into the second issue. The second issue consists of xv,[2],783,[1] pages and appears to contain the same plates, although several bibliographers call for four additional plates in the second issue (see Streeter and Sabin). The second issue contains a longer introduction, with an additional note about the moral condition of the Indians. The main text appears to be extremely similar (though not identical) up to page 730, in the midst of John Richardson's "Botanical Appendix," and thereafter a number of changes are incorporated into the second issue. The third edition of Wagner-Camp lists the second issue, and the fourth edition of Wagner-Camp lists the first issue. One of the maps called for in the list of plates and maps, "[Route] From Slave Lake to the Arctic Sea," is not present, and "An Outline to Shew the Connected discoveries of Capts. Ross, Parry & Franklin in the years 1818, 19, 20 and 21" is in its place. Apparently this was the map that was issued with the book, since it is contained in Streeter's copy and that of the Bancroft Library, which are also copies of this first issue (although evidently Wagner's copy contained the "correct" map). The error in the list of maps printed in the book is not corrected in the second issue, and the "Outline..." map is present in that volume as well. WAGNER-CAMP 23:1. FIELD 560. HILL 635. GRAFF 1406.

'I wish it were so,' said the Artist, 'but the words of the Song furnish a good subject for a Sketch,' and he soon presented his friend with the Illustration of 'Begone Dull Care,' this was much approved of, and became the first 'Symptom' of the 'Illustrations of Popular Songs,' a Work intended to furnish the Amateur of the Fine Arts, and of Singing, with characteristic representations of his favourite subjects, that he may have the pleasure of beholding the Poet's fancy, embodied by the glowing warmth of the Artist's fertile imagination."

        J. M. Elford’s Marine Telegraph; or, Universal Signal Book

      Charleston, SC: , 1823. Charleston, SC, 1823. Handcolored plate and handcolored ill. on front pastedown. (5), x-xii, (2), vii, (1) xiii-xvi, (1), 18-75, (3), 81, 8 pp. “So composed as to enable vessels at sea, provided with only two sets of the six telegraphic flags, described in the plate, to make 7569 signals ... and to act as telegraphs to each other ... Being also the key to the patent telegraph, invented by the author, capable of making 9330 progressive changes, by using the figures from 1 to 6 only.” This is quite an early American signal book. Truxtun and Porter had previously developed systems for naval use, but as far as I know this is the earliest American merchant system. Winterthur has a manuscript copy of Elford’s Signal system dated 1818. It was followed in 1832 by Parker’s signal book and then, in 1847, by Rogers’ system. Elford’s marine visual system depended on six uniquely patterned flags, and on a “conversation flag.” These are illustrated in this book, along with a glossary of words and sentences, and their numerical equivalents, which would be signaled by means of the flags. A sheet of testimonials has been pasted on the inside of the front board. At the bottom of this sheet is a tipped in paper listing “Agents.” Lemuel Moody of Portland is the first name. It would be interesting to know if he used Elford’s system to signal from his observatory. The front blank is inscribed, “Ship Marengo of New Orleans.” On the following blank is a hand colored illustration with manuscript showing the four flags that would signal Marengo’s identifying number. I have had this book twice before. Both of those copies ended at page 75, followed by a three page “Supplement.” In this copy the “Supplement is four pages long. It is followed by an 8 page dictionary listing ships and their identifying number. Rare. Worldcat shows only six libraries holding copies, none of which conform to this issue in terms of pagination. Bound in marbled boards with old linen over calf backstrip. Inner hinges cracked. sewing tight. Handcolored plate and illustrations are clean.

He called himself 'Portrait and Military painter' and was reputed to be an 'ex-captain of dragoons' but is not recorded in the Army List. Heath began life as a draughtsman and his main claim to fame rests on his having produced the first caricature magazine in Europe, The Glasgow later Northern Looking-Glass, 1825-1826. Although this was a provincial work and without much text, it does pre-date Charles Philipon's similar publication.

        Humorous Designs

      , 1823. 1823. Scarce First British Appearance of Boilly's GrimacesBOILLY, Louis-Léopold. Boilly's Humorous Designs. Seven Plates, Coloured After the Original Drawings. Price One Guinea. London: E. & C. M'Lean, 1823. First UK publication of a selection of Boilly's initial plates from his Recueil de Grimaces (1823). Folio (14 1/2 x 11 in; 375 x 275 mm). Seven hand-colored lithographed plates after Boilly with original tissue guards. Original printed buff wrappers. An excellent copy, housed in a later black cloth portfolio, lettered in gilt on front cover and with the bookplate of Alfred N. Beadleston. Exceedingly scarce, with only one copy in institutional holdings worldwide, at Harvard's Houghton Library  "Address to the Public. On or before November the 1st, will be Published by E. and C. M'Lean, a Second Series of Boilly's Designs, executed in the same superior and elegant form. October 1, 1823" (inside front wrapper).The first plate is unnumbered and the only one with title, Reading the Will ("La lecture du testament," Les Grimaces 10 in the French original). The remaining six plates are identified only as Grimaces Pl. 1 through Grimaces Pl. 6. Grimaces Pl. 1 is Les Grimaces 1 in the French original; Grimaces Pl. 2 is Les Grimaces 6; Grimaces Pl. 3 is Les Grimaces 3; Grimaces Pl. 4 is Les Grimaces 7; Grimaces Pl. 6 is Les Grimaces 34, "Les Fumeurs et les Priseurs. We've yet to identify the French original of Grimaces Pl. 5 but it is likely within the first ten plates of Recueil de Grimaces."Today, at least outside France, Boilly is best known for his lithographs. Although credited with having drawn the first lithograph in France in 1802, he did not return to the medium until 1822, when he more or less abondoned oil painting. The caricatural aspects of his lithographic work go back to the English caricaturists Cruikshank, Gillray, and Rowlandson and the earlier innovations of Hogarth. His most popular series of lithographs, Recueil de Grimaces, was published between 1823 and 1828... The vignetted subjects of these prints appear to be cut out and applied to a plain background, a format also used by Pigal during the Restoration. The series was so popular that Philipon's printer Aubert re-published it in 1837 under the new title Groupes physionomiques... "The series Recueil de Grimaces, published over the course of five years, included ninety-six lithographs... Boilly's popularity during the Restoration was largely due to this series. The interest in expressive heads had precedent in France... During the late eighteenth century, physiognomy, the art of reading inner character by means of facial expressions, was popularized by engravings illustrating Lavater's well-known Essays on Physiognomy, which may well have influenced the format of Boilly's Recueil de Grimaces' (The Charged Image: French Lithographic Caricature).The son of a wood-carver, Louis-Léopold Boilly lived in Douai until he was seventeen years of age, when he went to Arras to receive instruction in trompe-l'oeil painting at Domenica Doncre before moving to Paris in 1785. Between 1789 and 1791 he executed eight small scenes on moralizing and amorous subjects for the Avignon collector Esprit-Claude-François Calvet (1728–1810), including The Visit (1789; Saint-Omer, Musée Hôtel Sandelin). He exhibited at the Salon between 1791 and 1824 and received a gold medal at the Salon in 1804. These paintings thoroughly observed and reflected all aspects of urban life, its costumes and its habits, between the revolutionary period and the Restoration. In 1823, Boilly produced a series of humorous lithographies entitled Grimaces. In 1833, at a time when his popularity was declining, he was admitted to the Légion d’honneur and the Institut de France. His three sons, Julien Léopold (1796-1874), Édouard (1799-1854) and Alphonse Léopold (1801-1867), were also painters. The Art of Louis-Léopold Boilly, p. 122-123.Alfred Nash Beadleston, Sr. (1848–1915), partner in the Beadleston & Woerz Empire brewery of New York City, made headlines when, in 1909, the 60 year old Beadleston married 21 year old Helen F. Hazard (1888–1937), daughter of Edward Clarke Hazard of the grocery firm E. C. Hazard and Company, thus uniting stale old beer and ripe fresh groceries in one cart down the supermarket aisle.

First edition. Small quarto. [2], 52, 4, [as adverts.] pp. Forty-four hand-colored line, stipple or aquatint engraved plates, watermarked 1821-22, each printed with caption-title, imprinted "Ackermann's Repository of Arts" and dated to a month in 1822.Publisher's quarter crimson roan over drab boards, original printed pale green paper title label ("Upholsterer's and Cabinet-Maker's Repository"), gilt rules to spine. Roan and boards a little worn at extremities, internally clean. An remarkable copy of a very rare Ackermann title. Housed in an early twentieth-century red cloth clamshell case. No copies have appeared at auction since ABPC began indexing results in 1923. OCLC records only six copies in institutional holdings worldwide.A selection of plates and notes taken from Ackermann's Repository of Arts, and second in a series: Abbey records an Ackermann title, Upholsterer's and Cabinet-Maker's Repository, c. 1830, with seventy-six plates dated 1809-1815 but watermarked 1827-30. "Upholsterer's and Cabinet-Maker's Repository" appears on the title-label to the volume under notice but not the title-page. In the Preface to this copy it is written, "The Publisher... trusts with confidence that they will prove equally interesting with the First Series, containing seventy-six Designs, which has sometime been before the pubic."
