        De la natation et de son application à l'art de la guerre

      Paris, Anthelme Boucher, 1823. de XXXII, 146 pages et 12 planches lithographiées exemplaire broché 1823, 1823, in-12, de XXXII, 146 pages et 12 planches lithographiées, exemplaire broché, PREMIERE EDITION, d'une extrême rareté de ce texte qui, pour la première fois, propose d'appliquer l'art de la nage à la formation gymnastique des militaires. En effet, même si en France et en français, Thévenot avait, dés 1696, proposé un "Art de nager" (celui-ci fut enrichi et développé au XVIIIe siècle, ou critiqué, notamment par Roger), personne, avant 1823, n'avait pensé faire fusionner l'art de la guerre à l'art de la nage. "C'est le Vicomte de Courtivron qui, le premier, fournit sur l'art de nager une réflexion susceptible de précipiter l'intégration véritable de la natation à l'armée en dotant l'autorité militaire d'un outil pédagogique et d'un corpus de connaissances adaptées" (Teret, "Naissance et diffusion de la natation sportive", p. 42). Après deux parties générales sur les eaux et sur la natation, l'auteur étudie les différents types de nage, mais surtout, au sein du quatrième chapitre, il justifie, par des arguments d'autorité et des exemples tirés des guerres napoléoniennes, la natation dans la formation militaire et la création d'une compagnie de Soldats-Nageurs dont il détaille l'équipement, le costume et les fonctions. Outre le rôle pionnier de l'ouvrage, la technique de gravure employée s'avère aussi relativement avant-gardiste : la lithographie, inventée à la toute fin du XVIIIe siècle en Allemagne, n'est, en 1823 en France, qu'introduite depuis une dizaine d'années. Charles Motte, qui réalise les gravures est, après Engelmann, un des premiers lithographes français. Les planches représentent différents types de nage et l'équipement des futurs Soldats-Nageurs.

        Stresa

      1823. "En poursuivant depuis Baveno la superbe route du Simplon, on arrive en une heure au joli petit village de Stresa. Cet endroit est remarquable par son site pittoresque et la beautè de ses environs; il offre une multitude de charmants points de vue sur l'Isola Bella, qui en est très - voisine, et sur la rive opposée du lac.". Il Wetzel scelse questo particolare punto di presa da cui si vedeva Stresa e soprattutto la villa Bolongaro, di modo da rendere omaggio ai proprietari della villa per la loro graziosa ospitalità. A poca distanza si eleva la terrazza piramidale dell'Isola Bella, mentre in lontananza si scorge la chiesa di Baveno e dietro ad essa il Mont Orfano. Sull'orizzonte dominano le montagne piemontesi. mm 192x277

        Veduta dei Grandi Avanzi degli Aquedotti di Nerone vicino a Porta S.Giovanni

      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.

        Journal of a Horticultural Tour...

      1823. NEILL, Patrick. Journal of a Horticultural Tour through some parts of Flanders, Holland, and the north of France, in the autumn of 1817. xvi, 574, [2] pp. Illustrated with 7 black & white engraved plates, two of which are fold-out plans, by W.H. Lizars after John Hay; 8 illustrations in text. 8vo., 229 x 142 mm, bound in original brown boards with paper label on spine. Uncut. Edinburgh: Bell & Bradfute, 1823. |~||~||~||~||~||~| First Edition. Neill undertook his tour of the Continent with fellow Caledonian Horticultural Society members John Jay, Edinburgh planner, and James MacDonald, the chief gardener at Dalkeith Park to the Duke of Buccleuch. Their goal was to trade techniques and seeds with other horticulturalists in Northern Europe and to bring new fruits and vegetables back into Scotland. They traveled in areas under French control which had, until recently, been inaccessible to Britons. The Society wanted to establish an Experimental Garden upon their return where "the fruits of [their] labors" could be "duly reaped." While this did not happen as they expected, this book provides considerable detail of the many gardens, nurseries and markets that they visited. Some light foxing to plates, joint starting, spine label worn, boards rubbed, but overall a good copy, uncut, in original boards.

        Presumption! Or The Fate of Frankenstein. This Evening, Tuesday, Juy 29th, 1823. Will be presented (for the SECOND TIME) an entirely new Romance of a peculiar interest. Theatre Royal, English Opera House, Strand

      1823. THE SECOND PERFORMANCE OF THE FIRST ENGLISH PRODUCTION. Printed letterpress playbill/broadside, 13" x 7-7/8", stab holes to the left margin presumably bound up at one time, some mild foxing but largely clean and bright. The play's author, Richard Brinsley Peake (1792-1847), was a prolific dramatist of the London popular theatre from 1818 until the time of his death. Presumption! appeared at the Lyceum (the English Opera House) in the late summer of 1823. During the autumn of the same year, other serious adaptations of Frankenstein appeared at the Royalty and the Coburg. The part of the Monster was taken by Thomas Potter Cooke (1786-1864), a former sailor who had already earned popular and critical attention by his performance as Ruthven in The Vampire in 1820. The part of Victor Frankenstein was given to James William Wallack (1791-1864), perhaps the most recognized of the Lyceum's coterie of leading men. Presumption! continued to play with great success through the first half of August, always heading the program and followed by other melodramas, farces, or musical comedies. Although Presumption! was not the first successful Gothic melodrama of the 1820s, the popularity it achieved had an immediate effect on London theatre managements. Presumption! had helped to illuminate a public appetite for horrifying stage fantasies with morally unambiguous resolutions. The play was seen by Mary Shelley and her father William Godwin on 29 August 1823 at the English Opera House, shortly after her return to England. Shelley approved of the way the Creature, played by T.P. Cooke, was represented by a series of dashes in the advertising. Mary Shelley had mixed feelings about the play when it opened but, echoing Lord Byron, wrote: "But lo and behold I found myself famous! Frankenstein had prodigious success as a drama and was about to be repeated for the twenty-third night at the English Royal Opera House".

In fine condition. viii, 231 pp., (3 ll., 1 blank l.). *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. The scarcity of this work may be accounted for by the fact that it was a liberal interpretation of the constitutional monarchy under Portugal's first constitution, which had been promulgated and published the previous year. The present work was published in the same year as the @Vilafrancada, a revolt led by the Infante Dom Miguel on 27 May 1823 instigated by his mother the absolutist queen D. Carlota Joaquina, who had refused to swear allegiance to the constitution. The aim of this "golpe", achieved with considerable success, was to quash liberalism and establish a more conservative regime.Ferreira da Costa (1776-1825) a native of Setubal, studied law at Coimbra with the intention of pleasing his father by succeeding him as a lawyer in Setúbal. After his father died, however, Ferreira da Costa decided to study mathematics instead. Until 1814 he accompanied the Ajudante-General in the Peninsular War; elected deputy to the constitutional Côrtes in 1821, in 1823 he began to teach at the Academia Real de Marinha in Lisbon. He was a member of the Real Academia das Sciencias de Lisboa.*** Innocêncio VII, 170 (giving collation as viii, 231 pp. only). Copac repeats British Library only. Not located in Porbase.

Buried in a routine annual message delivered to Congress by President James Monroe in December 1823, the doctrine warns European nations that the United States would not tolerate further colonization, puppet monarchs or European powers interfering with the nations in the Western Hemisphere, and if the European powers did interfere, then the United States would retaliate with war.A wonderful example of this historically significant doctrine as shown in Newspaper format, dated only 2 days after the official delivery of THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE."

        Planches anatomique du corps humain. Atlas

      Paris: C. de Lasteyrie, 1823-26. The Double Elephant Folio of Anatomy [Mascagni, Paolo (1752-1815).] Antommarchi, Francesco (1789-1838), ed. Planches anatomiques du corps humain executes d’apr?s les dimensions naturelles . . . Double elephant folio atlas. Lithographed part-title leaf, title leaf and 83 lithographed plates (48 black and white, 35 outline) by Charles-Philibert de Lasteyrie (1759-1849), all leaves folded and mounted on guards. Paris: C. de Lasteyrie, [1823-] 1826. 623 x 509 mm. (individual leaves measure 907 x 623 mm. / 35.6875 x 24.5 inches unfolded). 20th century half morocco, paste paper boards, light wear. Discreet repairs to margins of part-title, minor occasional foxing, but very good. Considering that it is among the rarest of all anatomies, and certainly the largest, it is remarkable that two nearly identical editions of Mascagni’s posthumous life-size anatomy were published almost simultaneously. The present lithographed edition was issued between 1823 and 1826. An edition with engraved plates was also published in Pisa under the title Anatomia universa (1823-32). Though the two editions were printed by different processes, the image quality of the two is remarkably similar and it is debatable which is superior from either the artistic or scientific standpoint. Antommarchi’s version, in an homage to Vesalius, includes imaginary landscape backgrounds created for the base of his musclemen; these do not appear in the Italian edition. There are other subtle differences. Antommarchi included letter keys within the images of some of the less-complex plates, eliminating the need for outline plates to those images. He also published more anatomical plates than the Italian edition. The publication history of these two editions is complex and usually misunderstood. The edition we are offering was issued in 15 parts between 1823 and 1826 by the lithographic press of the Comte de Lasteyrie, one of the two founders of lithography in France (an accompanying text volume, not present with this copy, was issued in 1826 and bears the imprint of Lasteyrie’s successor, R. Brégeaut). The atlas, with magnificent plates printed on single broadsheets measuring 970 x 650 mm. uncut, is comparable in size to the double elephant folio edition of Audubon’s Birds of America (1827-38), which measures about 985 x 660 mm. It is without doubt the largest lithographically printed book issued during the incunabula period of lithography. The atlas was issued in both uncolored and colored versions; according to the part-title included with this copy, uncolored fascicles sold for 30 francs each and colored ones for 80 francs each. Choulant, writing in the 1840s when copies of both editions might have remained available from the publishers, states that copies of the completed version with colored plates could be purchased for 150 francs and uncolored copies for 375 francs. Because the plates are so large, in some extant copies of the atlas they are backed with linen and cut for folding with some resulting loss of image. This is not the case here: Each plate is folded horizontally and mounted on a guard, preserving the entire image.
