"L'Isola Madre, parée toute l'année de sa brillante verdure, offre l'image d'un printems perpétuel; le climat y est si doux, que l'oranger en plein air n'y redoute pas le les rigueurs de l'hiver". Più in lontananza appresso la riva di Pallanza si nota l'Isolino San Giovanni.

An argument that the American Indians were descended from the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel. This argument reappeared in Joseph Smith's (no relation) Book of Mormon published seven years later, and many have attempted to establish a connection between the two works.

The book was reprinted and slightly enlarged in 1825 and copies are seen on the market with some frequency, but this first edition is quite rare in trade.

Quatre brochures reliées traitant de la question de l'établissement de l'évêché de Montréal. Chaboillez (1773-1834) s'opposait à la nomination de Mgr Lartigue au poste d'évêque auxiliaire de Montréal car il craignait que ce dernier outrepasse l'autorité des Sulpiciens et de son supérieur Jean-Henry-Auguste Roux, qui étaient jusqu'alors les administrateurs reconnus du district. Curieusement. Lartigue était lui-même un Sulpicien et il fut nommé par Mgr Plessis, ancien élève de cette communauté. Malgré cela, Lartigue et Plessis ne tardèrent pas à entrer en conflit avec les Sulpiciens sur le sujet de l'autorité et sur d'autres affaires car Roux, dont la communauté originait de France souhaitait maintenir son autorité et le caractère français de son administration. Roux et la communauté de Saint-Sulpice firent donc en sorte de ne jamais confier de poste d'importance à des Canadiens. Au sujet de Chaboillez et de cette querelle, consultez la notice de Gilles Chaussé dans le Dictionnaire biographique du Canada, tome VI, pp. 137-38. Br.

        Sicilian Scenery

      1823. First Edition . LIGHT, William. Sicilian Scenery from Drawings by P. DeWint, the Original Sketches by Major Light. London: Rodwell & Martin, 1823. Quarto, late 19th-century full deep red straight-grain morocco, raised bands, elaborately gilt-decorated spine and cover border, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. $2800.First edition, large paper copy, of this splendid compilation of Sicilian views, with frontispiece vignette, engraved pictorial title page, and 60 detailed full-page plates of landscapes, cityscapes and classical ruins, each with a leaf of descriptive text in both English and French.From 1814 to 1821 Colonel William Light served in Scotland and Ireland, and managed to travel to Sicily, Florence and Turin, during which tours he made the intricate drawings that appear in Sicilian Scenery. Re-drawn by Peter DeWint, one of the finest 19th-century watercolor painters of the English school, LightÂ’s sketches of the landscapes, cityscapes, and ancient classical ruins of Sicily, including the temples of Juno, Jupiter Olympius and Concord and the amphitheater at Syracuse are here preserved in rich full-page plates by such noted English engravers as Heath, Askey, and Hobson. Years later, while Light was on one of his many trips, his house at Thebarton was destroyed by fire, consuming most of his paintings, sketches, diaries and notebooks. This, then, is the only record of his Sicilian images. Much of the beauty of these plates is owed to DeWint. “No artist ever came nearer painting a perfect picture than did Peter de Wint” (Alfred William Rich). Armorial bookplate. Gift inscription within the Grantham family on the half title.Occasional light patches of foxing, faint offsetting of plates to text. An about-fine copy, handsomely bound.

        Letter signed (with initials).

      Genoa, 12. VII. 1823. - 4to. ¾ p. on bifolium. With integral address-leaf. The present letter, written in Italian and in the hand of Count Pietro Gamba (the brother of his beloved Teresa Guiccioli), was written while Byron was making his final preparations for his voyage to Greece, where he was to die nine months later "that Greece may still be free". Its addressee is the Greek patriot Giorgio Vitali (1776-1854) at Leghorn, from an ancient Venetian family and the commander of the Ionic vessel "Hercules" that Byron wanted to take. Byron is delaying his departure until July 14, and tells Vitali that by passing through Leghorn they should not drop anchor in order to avoid pointless expense and waste of time. - Byron was to bid farewell to Teresa and board the "Hercules" on 13 July, the day after writing this letter. However, his departure was to be delayed by calms, and then a storm. By some accounts, his mood at this time was despondent, almost fatalistic. During the delay he went on shore again to visit the house outside Genoa that he had shared with Teresa; as her brother recalled: "His conversation was somewhat melancholy on our way to Albaro, he spoke much of his past life, and of uncertainty of the future, 'where', said he, 'shall we be in a year?'" (quoted by Leslie A. Marchand, Byron: A Biography [1957] III, 1089). They eventually set sail from Genoa on the 16th. During the couple of days spent at Leghorn, Byron received a verse-tribute from Goethe and dashed off his famous reply: "I sailed from Genoa some days ago - was driven back by a Gale of Wind - and have since sailed again - and arrived here (Leghorn) this morning to receive on board some Greek passengers for their struggling country" (22 July 1823). They set sail once again on 24 July, and finally reached Cephalonia on 2 August. - Not published in Marchand's edition of Byron's Letters and Journals (1973-1994); small clipping from opening the letter (slightly touching text); overall in fine condition.

        De Capta a Mehemethe II Constantinopoli [Fall of Constantinople]

      1823. First Edition . (CONSTANTINOPLE) LEONARD OF CHIOS. LANGUS, Godefridus. De Capta a Mehemethe II Constantinopoli [Fall of Constantinople]. Paris: Didot le Jeune for Charles Stuart, 1823. Quarto, original full black embossed morocco, raised bands, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. $4200.Very rare first edition of two important eyewitness accounts of the fall of Constantinople at the hands of Mehmed II in 1453, with engraved folding plan of the city—one of only 60 copies printed for Charles Stuart to distribute privately. Handsomely bound in full morocco in the ‘relievoÂ’ style.Leonard of Chios (d. 1482), a Catholic prelate and the PopeÂ’s emissary to Emperor Constantine XI, became a witness to Mehmed IIÂ’s successful assault on Constantinople and the cityÂ’s fall to Muslim troops in 1453. He escaped the slaughter and returned to Chios, where he penned this account to the Pope; the letter was first published in 1544. Godefridus Langus was apparently also an eyewitness; his account first appeared in print in 1594. Manuscripts of these works were acquired by BritainÂ’s ambassador to Paris, collector and amateur historian Charles Stuart, Baron Stuart de Rothesay (1779-1845). Stuart had the manuscripts transcribed by Jean-Baptiste LÂ’Ecuy and published 60 copies of this work to be given away privately, not sold. The work has consequently always been very rare and desirable. DibdinÂ’s “Library Companion” mentions a “very beautiful, curious, and interesting quarto printed by Sir CharlesÂ… the only copies of this work I have seen in England are those in the libraries of the Duke of Bedford, Earl Spencer, and the Reverend Stephen Watson.” The binding of embossed ‘relievoÂ’ morocco is quite possibly by the trade binders Remnant & Edmonds, who were the leading producers of this kind of elaborately embossed binding. Their process to make leather appear to be intricately carved wood was found so ingenious and convincing that the firm was awarded a medal for binding at the 1851 Great Exhibition. Atabey 705. Blackmer 1909. Brunet III, 984. Engraved armorial bookplate of Michael Tomkinson, Franche Hall, Worcestershire; catalogue excerpt tipped to rear flyleaf indicates that this copy was lot 1257 in the Tomkinson sale at SothebyÂ’s on July 3, 1922.Light foxing to text. Handsome ‘relievoÂ’ binding very nearly fine. Quite scarce.

        De las Prisiones consideradas en su actual estado y según las reformas que deben experimentar con respecto a la Higiene, a la Moral y a la Economía Política. Obra escrita en francés y traducida por L.

      Cádiz, imprenta de la Casa de Socorro, 1823. - Petit in-4. 1f. IV. 100pp. Demi-veau postérieur (Domenech). Première Edition Espagnole de cet important ouvrage du statisticien et philanthrope français Louis René Villermé (1782-1863), qui fut l'un des grands précurseurs de la sociologie moderne. "Les travaux de Villermé sont reconnus comme des étapes très importantes du développement de la démographie et de la statistique. Une première étude sur les conditions de vie des prisonniers (1820), laquelle s'insérait dans un projet de réforme du régime pénitentiaire, rend Villermé célèbre. Il entreprend ensuite des études comparées de la mortalité et de la mortalité infantile suivant les milieux sociaux, desquelles il ressort que la condition ouvrière dans les villes entraîne une mortalité très supérieure à la moyenne" (Encyclopædia Universalis). La traduction en espagnol de cet ouvrage précurseur de Villermé s'inscrit dans le cadre du mouvement d'idées libérales qui avaient conduit à la promulgation de la première Constitution Espagnole à Cádiz en 1812; l'année 1823, date de publication du présent ouvrage, marquait le renversement du régime et le retour de l'absolutisme. Déchirure sans manque au feuillet J. Quelques rousseurs éparses.

        Slaves. WITH: Slave Population

      1823. First Edition . (SLAVERY) (PARLIAMENT). Slaves. Papers Presented Pursuant to Address; viz. Acts of Colonial Legislatures for Registry of Slaves. Ordered, by the House of Commons, to be Printed, 27 February 1823. WITH: Slave Population. Papers and Returns, Presented Pursuant to Address, Relating to the Slave Population of Dominca, Grenada, St. Vincent, Barbadoes, Antigua, Tobago, Demerara, Berbice, St. Christopher, Trinidad, and Mauritius. Ordered, by the House of Commons, to be Printed, 4 March 1823. (London): House of Commons, 1823. Two volumes. Folio, period-style three-quarter dark blue morocco, marbled boards and endpapers, uncut. $5500.Rare 1823 Parliamentary acts and colonial reports on slavery in the British colonies of the Caribbean, two exceptional volumes of laws and papers, printed by order of the House of Commons in February and in March 1823, providing precise documentation on the taxation, commerce and legal governance of slavery, and an implicit, sometimes chilling record of its human misery.“In the century and a half of the slave trade… between three and four million Africans were transported out of their homelands to the New World in British ships… it was the single largest abduction in human history.” By the early 1800s, “the British Empire was, overwhelmingly, an empire of soldiers and… nearly a million Caribbean slaves” (Schama II:416, 405). Following passage of the 1807 Act for the Abolition of the British Slave Trade, most British colonies in the Caribbean established registries to monitor legally held slaves. Subsequently, abolitionists such as William Wilberforce argued in Parliament for “a bill relative to the registry and regulation of slaves,” hoping to expose the planters’ continuing inhumane treatment, but opposition denounced this “interference with the local legislation of the colonies” (Annual Register, 1816). After long debate, the 1819 Slave Registration Act was passed, requiring a central record of any commercial transaction or transport between islands involving slaves to be sent to the London registry. Subsequently the Colonial Secretary issued additional instructions to its governors, whose effect is seen in these two rare volumes, ordered by the House of Commons in February and March of 1823. Volume I contains “copies of all ACTS of the Colonial Legislatures, and, also, of all Orders, Proclamations, or other Regulations, for establishing the Registration of Slaves in His Majesty’s Foreign Settlements,” along with certain laws enacted by the Dutch (A2), including laws passed in the Bahamas, Barbados and other colonies from 1816-23. Volume II contains reports on “the number of Slaves imported under licenses, or otherwise, since the 1st of January 1808… together with the places from which they were brought” (A2), as submitted to Downing Street from Grenada, Barbados, Antigua, Trinidad and elsewhere. Included are “Papers and Returns” on the taxation and legal sale of slaves, their births, baptisms, marriages and burials, and a record of free slaves and runaways. Also noted are executions, such as that of one slave “for the murder of his mistress” and the sale of another to pay for expenses at the inquest (C3). Similar reporting continued until the abolishment of slavery in 1834. OCLC lists no copies. See Harvard Law Catalog, 300. Light dampstaining and small closed tears to gutter of title pages and some leaves, without affecting text. A very nearly fine collection central to the history of slavery, in two handsomely bound volumes.

        Narrative of a Voyage Round the World, in the Uranie and Physicienne Corvettes, Commanded by Captain Freycinet, During the Years 1817, 1818, 1819 and 1820; on a Scientific Expedition Undertaken By Order of the French Government, in a Series of Letters to a Friend

      London: Treuttel and Wurtz, Treuttel, Jun. and Richter 1823 - London: Treuttel and Wurtz, Treuttel, Jun. and Richter. 1823, First English Edition. Quarto – 27.5 cm. 2 parts in 1, fold-out frontispiece map and 25 lithograph plates -- complete; later full-tan calf with gilt decorative ruled border on front and rear boards, spine with five raised bands, bright gilt decorative compartments and fuchsia morocco title label. Despite the clear evidence of the 'Directions for placing the Plates' present here, there has been some unnecessary confusion about the collation of this book. Ferguson omitted the map from his plate count, while Hill erroneously called for a map and 26 plates. This very clean copy, with the map and 25 plates is complete and in Near Fine+ condition. The first edition in English of this private narrative of the 1817-1820 Freycinet expedition to Australia and the Pacific - in fact the first appearance in English of any account of the voyage. Originally published in French, Arago's book in its many subsequent editions became one of the voyage best-sellers of the nineteenth century. The English edition is much rarer than the French edition. The very large multi-volume French account of the voyage was far more serious and scientific in tone. Arago was the official draftsman on the voyage, and the excellent lithograph plates here are all after Arago’s drawings. WITH: A 3-page letter written and signed by Arago dated 8 April 1842 to Minister M. Piobert discussing the voyages of Dumont Durville and La Place. “The “Uranie” with a crew of 125 men under the command of Captain Louis de Freycinet, entered the Pacific from the West to make scientific observations on geography, magnetism and meteorology. Arago was the artist of the expedition which visited Western Australia, Timor, Hawaii and New South Wales. The original ship wrecked off the Falkland Islands. Two months later, the expedition continued aboard the “Physicenne” which stopped for a time in Rio de Janeiro. Captain Freycinet’s wife, Rose Pinon, was smuggled on board at the advent of the voyage and made the complete journey, causing some discord among the crew. Freycinet named an island he discovered after her – Rose Island among the Samoa Islands. These entertaining letters, written in a lively and witty literary style, provide vivid descriptions of the topography and the inhabitants of the Pacific Islands. The book achieved great success”.

        Europa und sein Monarchenthum oder Geheime Politik der Staaten aus der Moral- und Rechts-Philosophie. Versuch einer politischen Glückseligkeitslehre für alle Stände * 2 Bände (vollständig) / Handeinbände der Zeit mit teilziseliertem Ganzgoldschnitt

      Magdeburg, Selbstverlag, 1823 - Vollständige Ausgabe: 2 Bände, jeweils in elegantem Handeinband der Zeit als Festeinband / Pappband 8vo im Format 12,7 x 20,7 cm mit Rückentitel und Liniendekoration beider Deckel in Goldprägung (Handvergoldung), Innenkantenvergoldung, ziselierter Ganzgoldschnitt und handgestochenem Kopfband, 292 / 316 Seiten, Schrift. Fraktur. - "Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Zum Kapital wird kein schlappes maschinengewebtes Bändchen verwendet, sondern das Kapital wird von Hand mit dem Buchblock umstochen und gibt dadurch dem Rücken einen festen Abschluß. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können."

First edition. Engraved dedication leaf and 52 engraved plates numbered 1-60. [8], 15, [1], 8 pp. 4to. With the rare advertisement regarding the feud between Dibdin and Lewis. This copy features the rare "Advertisement" by Lewis regarding the bitter feud between him and Dibdin over payment for these illustrations. Lewis had accompanied Dibdin and provided the illustrations for his "Bibliographical Antiquarian and Picturesque Tour in France and Germany" (1821). This volume features illustrations that were left out of that edition, engraved and issued in parts by Lewis himself, who provides letterpress explanation of the plates as well. Dibdin left them out of the Tour because he did not think very highly of them, and Lewis received payment only after arbitration. "These etchings were made from his own drawings by Lewis, apparently in an endeavor to obtain further reward for his labors when he accompanied Dibding on his Tour. The unhappy quarrel over payment is set out from Lewis's viewpoint in an Advertisement ... which he was persuaded, or decided on his own, to suppress. It is now very uncommon" (Jackson). Jackson 56.

        Éloge de la Pérouse. Ouvrage qui a obtenu l'églantine d'or, décernée par l'Académie des jeux floraux du Toulouse, au concours de 1823.

      Paris: Firmin Didot, 1823. Octavo, 46 pp., with some of the foxing endemic to some French books of this period; very good in recent blue paper boards with morocco label. Very rare eulogy to La Pérouse published some thirty-five years after the disappearance of his two vessels, and a scant three years before the wrecks of the Astrolabe and the Boussole were discovered by the sandalwood trader Peter Dillon.Vinaty (sometimes 'Vinati') prepared the work for the Académie des Jeux-Floraux of Toulouse, where the eulogy won their prize l'Eglantine d'Or. The work is not only testament to the enduring importance of La Pérouse in the French-speaking world, it is also an interesting document of its time, because Vinaty shows a willingness to skip over the years of the Revolution and the rule of Napoleon. He is at pains to re-assert a continuity with the glory of France under Louis XVI, in the process presenting La Pérouse as a truly great French hero, but also as one capable of honouring the memory and achievements of Cook (a lengthy passage, for instance, praises La Pérouse for raising a suitable memorial above the tomb of Cook's successor Captain Clerke in Kamchatka). Throughout, the tone is pure Restoration, underlined by his quoting from the great exile writer Chateaubriand.The work's rarity is borne out by Ferguson, who first located a copy in the Edward Weber Allen collection in California in time for the addenda to volume II of his bibliography; the copy in the State Library of New South Wales was added with a revised note to the full Addenda volume of 1986. The work is also noticed in McLaren's Lapérouse in the Pacific, who added a copy in the Bibliothèque Nationale. Otherwise, Vinaty's work is not noted in many standard references (it is a surprising omission from Forbes's Hawaiian National Bibliography); nor is it listed in important collections such as Kroepelien and Hill.
