      1823. 1 S. 4to. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief). An den Schriftsteller und k. k. Zensor Johann Baptist Rupprecht (1776-1846), dessen Gedicht "Merkenstein" Beethoven vertonte: "Da ich das Glück habe, mein Blatt unter Ihrer Censur zu wissen, so tröstet mich Ihr mir bisher bewiesenes Wohlwollen. Ich kann versichern, daß ich die Laune meines Herrn Censors durch abgenöthigtes Streichen wenig getrübt habe. Seyn Sie so gütig, meine unschuldigen, wenn gleich komischen 'Briefe einer Prima Donna' nicht mit misstrauischem Auge zu betrachten. Die Satyre darinn ist so allgemein, dass ich alle Farben brauche, um nur kein uns bekanntes Gesicht zu zeichnen. - Mein verwundeter Fuß hindert mich seit 8 Wochen weit zu gehen, sonst hätte ich meine Aufwartung persönlich gemacht [...]". - 1809 wandte sich Kanne der Musik zu und zog von Wittenberg nach Wien. Seit 1817 redigierte er die "Allgemeine musikalische Zeitung" sowie den von Ignaz Franz Castelli gegründeten "Musikalischen Anzeiger" und schrieb Musikkritiken für die "Theaterzeitung" und den "Sammler".

      1823. 3 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 4to. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief). An eine Signora Seidler: "Ein langer Aufenthalt in Wien, eine hartnäckige Krankheit und endlich die Nachricht von Ihrer Abreise von Rom ohne zu wissen wohin Sie sich gewendet, sind daran schuld, daß ich so lange geschwiegen.

Ach welch ein Unglück ist es doch in Italien gewesen zu seyn! - Jeder Sonnenblick durch trüben, nordischen Wolkenhimmel, jede Frucht, alles Schöne erinnert uns an Italien und wenn nun alle Bilder der Erinnerung verweht sind, eine Villa Pamphill mit zahllosen Blumen, ein Vatican voll Göttergestalten vor der Phantasie steht und ein wahres festino in unserm Innern beginnt, jedes frohe Gefühl in ein Bild sich kleidet, dann tritt die Erinnerungszauberwelt mit der Wirklichkeit in solchen Widerspruch, daß jener Frühling vor einem kalten Wind verweht, die Götter fliehn, der Corso der Phantasie verödet u.wir werden es uns mit um so tieferm Schmerz bewußt, daß wir wieder in Jena, Leipzig oder Dresden sind [...]". - Mit kleinem Ausdriß durch Siegelbruch (geringf.

        Pétition. Présentée par M. Le Comte de Léaumont, au nom des Colons de Saint-Domingue, ? la Chambre des Députés

      Imprimerie de Marchand du Breuil, 1823. First edition. Self wrappers. A very good unopened (uncut) copy with marginal dampstain to lower right corner throughout, faint foxing on front wrapper, else clean and bright.. 16 pp. Comte de Léaumont (1756-1831) was a creole planter from les Cayes, deputy to the Colonial Assembly, and at this time one of the leading colonial refugees from Santo Domingo, and founder of the Société des propriétires de Sant-Domingue in 1819, an organization of powerful colons organized to sway public opinion and lobby for their positions which ranged from the military reconquest of Saint Domingue, monetary restitution by the state, as had been the case of metropolitan aristocrats who received indemnity for their loses under the French Revolution, and/or if all else failed, protection from the their metropolitan creditors, as both Napoleon and the Bourbons had done. But by the earlier 1820s resistance was growing to another suspension. Leaumont was unflagging in his defense of the colons as a contemporary note: "Every year, if some member of the Chamber of Deputies expressed the wish to see an end to the uncertain situation of Santo Domingo, a letter from Mr. De Leaumont, published in newspapers and sent home at the offender or his accomplices, had officially protest against any treaty which might be concluded between the King of France and 'rebellious slaves ... " ( Jean Baptiste G. Wallez, Précis historique des négociations entre la France et Saint-Domingue, Paris: Chez Monthieu,1826; pp. 430-439). In this Pétition, Léaumont again argues the planters positions about the funds to be allocated for the 'colons.' Rare. OCLC, COPAC, and other European Library databases locate no copies. A work with the same title but dated 25 mai 1824 is at the Bibliotheque Nationale de France (OCLC: 466504718).

        Woodford Sugar Plantation

      London, 4 February 1823. Signed manuscript document tallying and describing the slaves of Woodford Estate, a sugar plantation in Grenada owned by Archibald Armstrong Jr, a member of the Council of Grenada, being a register of slaves held as of February 1823 listing 132 individuals by the English names assigned to them, their approximate age and basic physical description, also recording births and deaths, one female purchased, and one female manumitted (freed). Folio. 6 pages, on two string-tied double-leafs, laid watermark paper of Dartford papermaker J. Budgen 1822 featuring a large fleur-de-lys emblem. Leafs measure approximately 48 x 33,5 cm. Docketed to verso. Signed in the original 3 December 1823, by Thomas Amyot, the Registrar of Colonial Slaves in Great Britain. Together with single leaf, 32 x 20 cm, tallying the slaves and labourers of three of Armstrong's plantations in 1835, beginning with the Woodford, and providing a cursory "Classification and valuation of Negroes." A rare primary source document which survived the highly conflicted abolition period. Archibald Armstrong Jr. and John Armstrong, cousins, were also connected with the Revolution Hall Estate in Grenada, as well as the Garden Estate and Prospect Estate in Trinidad. The latter two are mentioned in the accompanying document. In 1807 when the Abolition of Slave Trade Act came into force, the trade of slaves from Africa to the British colonies became illegal. In 1819 the Office for the Registry of Colonial Slaves was established in London in order to combat ongoing illicit transportation. British Colonial administrators began keeping registers of black slaves who had been so-called "lawfully enslaved." Copies of the slave registers, such as, and including the present document, were submitted to the office in order to prove compliance. Registration generally occurred once every three years, and continued through to 1834 when slavery was officially abolished. "A List of Slaves belonging to and worked upon Woodford Estate in the Parish of Saint John & in the Possession of John Armstrong as the lawful attorney of Archibald Armstrong Proprietor" heads this rare manuscript document from Grenada-born slave-owner and member of the Council of Grenada who was involved in the West Indies sugar trade. Especially unusual, albeit dating to the abolition period of colonial slavery, one (1) young woman twenty-two years of age, was in fact freed from slavery. A scarce primary source record of a sugar plantation estate in Grenada, one hundred and thirty-one slaves are named in this slave register. Seventy-two males and sixty-one females, the oldest being a female aged sixty-two, their country of origin being either Africa or Grenada, a single-word description of their physical status, and their assumed age, essentially summarizes their worth. Occasionally, a remark "Country marks on forehead" further identifies the enslaved individual. In addition, the birth of 3 boys and 1 girl are recorded in this year. One female from Dominica, of approximately 28 years of age, was purchased. Two slaves died of lock jaw in this year. Archibald Armstrong junior, Esq. (1790-1868) was born in Grenada and inherited Woodford Estate in Grenada from his father Archibald Armstrong Senior of London, on condition that he pay £3400 to each of his four sisters and £30 per year to his brother Joseph. Archibald junior was in London for the proving of his father's will on 15 November 1823, being one of three executors together with his cousin John Armstrong who is also named in this document. Under the 1833 Abolition Act, Archibald Jr was the awardee of the compensation for the enslaved people on the Woodford estate on Grenada, and presumably for two other small awards there. As executor of Richard or Archibald Armstrong, he was also granted part of the compensation for the Garden estate in Trinidad. In addition, he was assignee with John Hoyes of George Armstrong in the award for the Prospect estate in Trinidad. Interestingly, he was a member of the council of Grenada, in 1835 took a twelve months leave, and by 1841 had settled with his wife Anne [née Munro Gibbs] who was also born in Grenada, and their three children, in St Peters Port, Guernsey. In West Coast Grenada, just slightly north of Halifax Bay, the Woodford sugar plantation estate house stands in dilapidation today. Thomas Amyot (1775-1850) was an English antiquarian, a solicitor, private secretary to Secretary of State William Windham, Registrar of Colonial Slaves in the government offices of Great Britain, Secretary and Registrar of Records in Upper Canada, author and a founder of the Camden Society. Almost all the men and women awarded compensation under the 1833 Abolition Act are listed in what is called a Parliamentary Return, an official reply by a government body to a request from an MP. The return is often referred to as the Slavery Abolition Act: An account of all sums of money awarded by the Commissioners of Slave Compensation while its full title is Accounts of slave compensation claims; for the colonies of Jamaica. Antigua. Honduras. St. Christopher's. Grenada. Dominica. Nevis. Virgin Islands. St. Lucia. British Guiana. Montserrat. Bermuda. Bahamas. Tobago. St. Vincent's. Trinidad. Barbadoes. Mauritius. Cape of Good Hope. It can be found in House of Commons Parliamentary Papers 1837-1838 (215) vol. 48 and is 365 pages long. In 1832, before the abolition of slavery, there were 653 sugar estates in cultivation and over 500 coffee plantations in the British West Indies. The British Slavery Abolition Act provided grant totalling £20 million to compensate the slave-owners for the loss of their "human property"!

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Prag, 15. XI. 1823.

      1823. 3 SS. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt. 4to. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief) und Siegelrest. An Herrn von Ruprecht, im k. k.

Seit 1813 in Prag ansässig, kehrte sie 1826 nach Berlin zurück. Im Jahr 1824 wurde sie Chefredakteurin der Prager Zeitschrift "Der Kranz", in der auch ihre Werke abgedruckt wurden.

        Autograph letter signed ("Humboldt"). No place or date, "a jeudi" [1823].

      1823. 4to (200 x 255 mm). 2 pp. With marginal sketch of the instrument. To the mathematician and astronomer Louis Benjamin Francoeur (1773-1849), concerning a new artificial horizon. - A report by Francoeur ("[...] sur deux instruments d'astronomie présentés par M. Ducom, professeur d'hydrographie à Bordeaux", published in the "Bulletin de la Société d'Encouragement" XI (1823), prompted Humboldt to write this letter with his own suggestions for further improving the first of these, Ducom's artificial horizon: "Monsieur, ayant lu ce matin un intéressant rapport que vous avez fait, Monsieur, à la Société d'encouragement pour un nouvel horizon artificiel attribué à Mr Ducom [...] j'ai pensé qu'il pourrait vous être agréable d'apprendre que cet appareil de 2 tubes gradués et placés d'avance sous l'angle de réflexion du soleil [...] est une invention de Mr Köhler à Dresde [...] J'ai décrit cet appareil très clairement dans l'introduction de mon recueil d'obs. astronomiques [...] ouvrage publié depuis quinze ans avec les tubes de Mr Köhler [...] il n'y a rien de neuf à ce qu'il paraît dans l'appareil de Mr Ducom que l'application de la toile métallique due à Mr Brosle [...] vous trouverez peut-être, l'occasion, Monsieur, de rappeler vous-même l'invention de l'astronome de Dresde, mort depuis longtemps [...]". - Rather brittle; traces of original folds; remnants of later mounting tabs on reverse; narrow strip at right edge browned (with the reverse more evenly browned).

        Album of photographs. Aden, Cairo and other places, c. 1870s-80s.

      1823. Large landscape album (275 x 375 mm). 125 black and white photographs. Bound in full burgundy morocco with title stamped in gilt lettering on the front cover, album sheets edged with gilt, gilt roll-toothed border along pastedowns. A magnificent album of photographs providing an extensive panorama from Aden to on the southern tip of Yemen to Cairo. It includes views of the Suez Canal and Port Said, Somalis in traditional dress, details of architecture and lattice work, landmarks and street scenes, historical monuments and works of art. Three-quarters of the photographs are signed by three highly respected photographers of the period: the Zangaki Brothers (active 1870s-90s), Pascal Sébah (1823-86), and Luigi Fiorillo (active 1870-75). The whole is a representative and fine example of a high-quality album aimed at the tourist market. - Adelphoi Zangaki, the brothers Constantine and George Zangakis, were Greek photographers specializing in historical images for the tourist trade, who worked occasionally with the Port Said photographer, Hippolyte Arnoux. - Sébah, a leading Constantinople photographer, was renowned for his well-judged compositions and for the excellent print quality achieved by his technician A. Laroche. He carved a particular niche for himself through collaboration with the portrait painter Osman Hamdi Bey (1842-1910) who posed models in elaborate costumes for Sébah and then used the photographs as the basis for his oil paintings. A commission from the Ottoman court for Osman Hamdi Bey to direct the Ottoman exhibition in Vienna in 1873 yielded an album by Sébah, "Les Costumes Populaires de la Turquie", which earned him a gold medal from the Viennese, and another from the Sultan Abdulaziz. That year, he opened a branch in Egypt. A Catholic, he was buried in the Latin cemetery in Ferikoy, where his son was also interred. The firm founded by Sébah in 1857 continued until 1952, under his brother Cosimi and his son Jean, later in partnership with Policarpe Joaillier and then with Hagop Iskender and Leo Perpignani; it finished as Foto Sabah under Ismail Insel, partner to Iskender's son Bedros. - Fiorillo was active in the 1870s-80s and is known particularly for his haunting record of the British bombardment of Alexandria in 1882 during the Anglo-Egyptian war, views of the city before and after the attack. He was also occupied with the tourist trade.

        The Presidential message proclaiming the Monroe Doctrine, in The National Intelligencer

      Gales and Seaton, Washington, D.C. 1823 - Volume xi, no. 3417. 1823. Bound with 127 issues of the paper 8 July to 31 December 1823. Large folio, 4pp. (20 3/8 x 15 1/4 in.), printed five columns to the page, decorative masthead at top of page 1, Monroe's message with American eagle woodcut at head. FIRST NEWSPAPER PRINTING OF THE MONROE DOCTRINE, IN THE QUASI-OFFICIAL National Intelligencer. Monroe's historic message to Congress of 2 December 1823 (here occupying 6 columns on pages 2 and 3) enshrined as national policy principles suggested by Secretary of State John Quincy Adams, condemning European intervention in the Americas and prohibiting all efforts at colonization. Monroe proclaimed that "The American continents, by the free and independent condition they have assumed and maintained, are henceforth not to be considered as subjects for future colonization by any European powers," and that any such intervention would be regarded as "manifestation of an unfriendly disposition towards the United States." His announcement "represented one of Adams' finest contributions to the emergence of the United States as a world power" (Nagel, John Quincy Adams, p.271). "By including the policy statement in his annual message Monroe gave his declaration a character reminiscent of Washington's well-remembered Farewell Address. He focussed attention upon his utterances as a declaration of national policy." (Ammon, James Monroe: The Quest for National Identity, p.492). This printing, in the quasi-official National Intelligencer, is preceded only by an exceedingly rare "extra" issued on 2 December by the same press. Grolier American 100, 33 (book form edition); Streeter Sale, lot 1734. Disbound, spine defective, occasionally minor fraying, but internally in fine condition [Attributes: First Edition]

Indication of moisture or wear to some leaves, otherwise in very good condition, a lovely collection of specimens preserved with care. Together with field tools, including an ornate green collector's tin with working clasp, and a plant press made by P & L in Paris. Some paint loss to tin, otherwise both in very good, original working condition. Together with Jaubert's original photographic carte-de-visite c. 1860, and a ms. letter (in French), signed by him, 7 January 1830, with excellent botanical content, to an Italian botanist in Florence Eugène de Reboul (1781-1851), specifically mentioning his upcoming botanical travels to Italy. Double-leaf letter with integral address and red wax seal. Both in very good condition. The complete archive contained in a metal chest measuring 14 x 20 x 12 inches. An authentic herbarium of estimable proportion, a substantial field work compiled by a botanist two centuries past, neatly presents and preserves 241 specimens, including samples of eurya taken from China, Cuba, and New Caledonia in the South Pacific, some eriocaulon from Bahia in Brazil. All regions represented in the substantial collection are as follows: Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Cuba, New Caledonia, Java, China, Egypt, Abyssinia, Oran, Tunisia, Algeria, Zanzibar, France and Italy. Jaubert had created a substantial herbarium, and from that which he had collected, as well as a collection held by the National Museum of Natural History, together with Édouard Spach (1801-79), he published a five volume work titled "Illustrationes plantarum orientalium" (Paris 1842-57). Count Jaubert (1798-1874) was a French politician and botanist. Although passionate about natural history, he was made to study law. At the passing of his uncle, he inherited the title of Count, as well as an immense fortune which enabled him, among other things, to become director of the Paris-Orléans railway company, while finally concentrating on botany and politics. In 1821 Jaubert toured Auvergne and Provence, and also Austria and Italy, with botanist and geologist Victor Jacquemont to study the flora and geology of those regions. In the same year, together with celebrated German botanist Karl Sigismund Kunth who was the first to study and categorise plants from the American continents, and with four leading French botanists A. Brongniart, A. de Jussieu, J. B. A. Guillemin, and A. Richard, Jaubert founded the short-lived Natural History Society of Paris. The society financed an expedition to Asia of several naturalists, among them Pierre Martin Rémi Aucher-Éloy (1792-1838), a pharmacist and botanist who in 1830 relocated to Istanbul with aims of creating an Herbier d'Orient. Despite political responsibilities, in 1839 Jaubert made a journey to Asia Minor for botanical research, travelling with archaeologist F. M. C. Texier. Over the years Jaubert personally funded expeditions to the Orient made by several botanists. In the late 1840s Jaubert withdrew from political life, for a few years, devoting himself to botany and business. He was elected to the French Academy of Sciences in 1858, and was among the founders of the Botanical Society of France in 1854.

      1823. 8vo. VIII, 199, (1) pp. Modern full mottled calf, tooled outer border on covers. Only edition. The book entitled in Chinese "Hsien-wen-shu", or "Book of Good Lore", containing 200 moral proverbs, was meant to serve as an exercise book for the beginner of Chinese studies. "The learned translator, Mr. Davis, appears, from the preface, to have drawn up his work at Macao, and to have sent home to the library at the India House his manuscript-version for impression: but as the requisite types were not to be found in that institution, it was, at the recommendation of Dr. Wilkins, sent back to Asia" (The Monthly Review 107 [1825], p. 197). Ultimately, the book was printed in Macao, as stated on the bottom of the final leaf (and distributed in England by John Murray). - A few corner defects, otherwise a good copy in a modern period-style binding.

        Histoire de l'Égypte sous le gouvernement de Mohammed-Aly, ou recit des Evenemens Politiques et Militaires qui ont eu lieu depuis le Depart des Francais jusqu'en 1823. Paris, A. Bertrand, 1823.

      1823. 2 text vols. in 8vo and atlas in folio. 464 pp. 644 pp. (8), 12 lithogr. plates (6 of them hand-coloured), including a folding hand-coloured plan and the folding, double-page map of the Nejd. Contemp. full calf with giltstamped spine labels (text) and original green cardboard portfolio with printed title label to cover (atlas); maps and plates loosely inserted within. First edition, the extremely rare coloured issue. Mengin's history of Egypt from the end of the French expedition to Khedive Muhammad Ali's dramatic reforms of Egyptian society and culture is mainly sought for its extensive appendix containing an early chronicle of the Wahhabis, with an account of the sack of Derrieh. "This chronicle is ascribed to a grandson of the Shaykh named 'le cheykh Abderrahman el-Oguyeh', presumably this is Abd al-Rahman ibn Hasan (d. 1869)", who travelled from Basra to Mecca and Medina (M. Cook, below). The folio-sized atlas contains the celebrated portrait of Abdullah ibn Saud, leader of the first Saudi state, who was executed by the Turks for sedition, and the famous, large map of the Nejd country with an inset of the environs of "El-Derreth" near Riyadh by E. F. Jombard. His commentary on the map is of particular note, being a synthesis of Arab and western knowledge, with many place names added for the first time. This "notice géographique" (vol. II, pp. 549-613) also includes a "nomenclature du pays de Nedjid", mentioning - among other places - Dubai and Qatar both in the original Arabic and in French transliteration. - Some waterstaining throughout, but confined to margins. The work is rarely found complete with both text volumes and the atlas as present; even the map has separately commanded several thousand pounds at auctions (cf. Sotheby's London, 6 May 2010, lot 147). Copies in contemporary hand colour are highly uncommon. Macro, Bibliography of the Arabian Peninsula, 1577. Atabey 802 (without the Atlas).

Ebenfalls mit einer zynischen Widmung an Baron Rothschild versehen. Hundt geht als einer der ersten Antisemiten weg von der christlichen Begründung des Jesus-Mordes hin zu einem rassisch motivierten Judenhass; er geht sogar so weit, dass er insgesamt ihm mißliebige Bevölkerungsgruppen zu sog. "weißen Juden" (im Gegensatz zu "schwarzen Juden") erklärt; u. a. werden Engländer zu Juden erklärt, da sie direkt von Abraham und dessen zweiter Frau Ketura abstammen sollen. Die "kleineren weißen" Juden hingegen seien unmittelbare Abkömmlinge Abrahams und dessen Mätressen. - Der auf dem Allodialgut Schlieven bei Parchim geborene Johann Hartwig Hundt (1780-1835) legte sich aus unbekannten Gründen den Namen "Radowksy" zu, gelegentlich auch ergänzt durch einen zu Unrecht getragenen Adelstitel. Sein geifernder Hass gegen Juden trieb ihn durch ganz Deutschland und mehrfach in die Schweiz ins Exil, wo er auch als mittelloser Alkoholiker verstarb. - Stockfleckig, sonst recht gut erhaltenes Exemplar des seltenen Werkes!

        Veduta del Tempio delle Camene, da altri del Dio Ridicolo

      1823. 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, Rossini's choice of the subjects does not present any kind of originality; he actually depicted all the main archaeological sites and monuments of Rome. The sole novelty is represented by the precise record of the excavation works and analysis. Quite interesting, from a documental point of view, are the last four engravings depicting the destruction of the Basilica of St. Paul outside the wall, after the fire of July the 15th, 1823. The will to give life to his views, the reinstatement of the monuments to their historic context and the fact that he was not good with figures, brought Rossini to start a partnership with Bartolomeo Pinelli, Roman engraver and costume illustrator of daily life. He was the one who realized the figures of Rossini's views. Sometimes Pinelli took the subjects from his previous collection Costumi pittoreschi romani. Roma Rome Luigi Rossini incisore.

(4). - First (sole) edition of this rare description of Prince Edward Island by the Scottish traveller Walter Johnstone. The island population had been substantially augmented in 1803 with the arrival of 800 Scottish High-landers and Johnstone had travelled across the Atlantic as a missionary. His intentions in the 'Letters' are described in brief on the title-page: "The Author of these Letters went out for the express purpose of surveying Prince Edward Island, and collecting information on the subject of Emigration. During two Summers, and one Winter, he was assiduously engaged in the prosecution of this object; and the small Volume now presented to the Public, will be found to contain a full and particular Account of the Climate, Soil, Natural Productions, and Mode of Husbandry adopted in the Island; together with Sketches of Scenery, Manners of the Inhabitants. the whole being intended for the guidance of future Emigrants, particularly as to what Implements and Necessaries it may be proper to provide themselves with before crossing the Atlantic."The 'Travels' is a more detailed analysis of the religious complexion of the islanders (English, Irish and Scottish) and describes Johnstone's attempts to provide structured religious education for the Highlanders and other settlers. The two works also give notable accounts of the native American population (the Mi'kmaq Indians) and of potato cultivation. Waterston p39. "A resume of denominations, church buildings and clergymen on the Island, as seen by a Presbyterian setting out to further the Sunday School movement. Johnstone also reports on black- horned cattle, lean and long-legged sheep, pigs so hungry they will catch a fowl and eat it live, wooden frame houses, and the barrens near Charlottetown.

        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.

        The Arctic Regions.

      Large folio (618 x 498 mm). Original brown morocco elaborately gilt, marbled endpapers. Housed in an oatmeal cloth folding case. First and only edition of this highly uncommon and highly desirable Arctic record, one of perhaps as few as 300 copies. The book forms a record of the last of seven voyages to Labrador and Greenland that Bradford sponsored or participated in during the 1860s: "all early examples of what one might call 'eco-art tourism'"(Books on Ice). Bradford was born in Fairhaven, Massachusetts in 1823, and established himself as a painter of ship portraits in Lynn and other local harbours, his work being characterised by its "correctness ... and carefulness" (DAB). From this he progressed to coastal studies, gradually moving northwards up the New England and Canadian coasts, and thence, inspired by the recently published accounts of the Franklin search expeditions, to the Arctic. "I was seized with a desire, which had become uncontrollable, to visit the scenes they had described and study Nature under the terrible aspects of the Frigid Zone" (quoted in the Dictionary of Canadian Biography). Between 1861 and 1867 he carried out a series of annual expeditions "along the coasts of Nova Scotia and Labrador for the purpose of painting northern scenery and icebergs", and in 1869 he obtained the support of broker and railroad baron Le Grand Lockwood to fit out the Scottish steamship Panther for his most ambitious voyage yet. His party of forty included John Bartlett, the son of the owner of the ship, who later captained for Peary, Dr Isaac Hayes, who had served under Kane, and two photographers, John B. Dunmore and George B. Critcherson, from the leading Boston photographic studio of James William Black. Departing from St John's on 3 July, the party sailed as far north as Baffin Island and Melville Bay, Greenland, and Bradford "returned with a collection of photographs and a vast number of sketches of the rugged landscape and the details of Inuit life". He was later to say that this vast archive of photographs had saved him "eight or ten voyages to the Arctic regions, now I gather my inspirations from my photographic subjects just as an author gains food from his library. I could not paint without them" (quoted by Horch). In the early 1870s Bradford settled in London, setting up a studio which attracted considerable aristocratic patronage (his most important commission came from Queen Victoria, the painting entitled "The Panther off the Coast of Greenland under the Midnight Sun" which was hung in the library of Windsor Castle), enjoying a second career as a lecturer on the Arctic, and in 1873 publishing the present volume; "no doubt ... one of the most sumptuous of the century ... one of the nineteenth century's most spectacular photographically illustrated travel books" (Parr & Badger). The technical problems that attended the handling of wet-plate negatives under extreme conditions makes the quality of Dunmore and Critcherson's images all the more remarkable, being "counted not only amongst the earliest, but also the best polar photographs".
