ottime condizioni. FRATELLI REANDA ROMA 1824 - 1924 Piazza de Ss. Apostoli sotto il Palazzo Colonna N. 61 CENTENARIO DELLA DITTA FRATELLI REANDA MERCANTI - SARTI Tipografia Cavalier Dionisio Squarci & Figli - Roma 1924 8 p. ; 18 x 25 cm FELLINI, LA GUERRA NON È COSA DA CLOWN In Intervista (1987), imperniato sull'idea di girare un film da America di Kafka, Fellini inscena la magia del suo primo sbarco a Cinecittà, il luogo dove l'immaginazione più stupefacente si concretizza e dove troverà se stesso. Da poco arrivato da Rimini, vi si reca giovanissimo per intervistare una famosa diva. Prende il tranvetto azzurro che partiva dalla stazione per Cinecittà e il viaggio assume un'aura mitica, perché l'avvenimento appartiene alla rivelazione estatica del destino. Sul tranway azzurro Fellini giovane - il delicato Sergio Rubini dagli occhi elettrizzati che sostituisce Peter Gonzales Falcon di Roma - attraversa dei paesaggi come quelli del Beato Angelico, delle campagne ricche come quelle di Brueghel, dove risuona il canto di Reginella bella, delle cascate che sono come quelle del Niagara. È uno dei suoi miti di fondazione e l'ha raccontato fantasiosamente molte volte. In Fare un film( Einaudi, 1980) spiega: Facevo il giornalista, scrivevo una rubrichetta sull'avanspettacolo per Cinemagazzino , un giornaletto tutto scritto da un sarto , si chiamava Reanda ed era tutto pieno di aghi e di fili sulla giacca. È merito di quel giornaletto se sono venuto una prima volta a Cinecittà. Dovevo intervistare Osvaldo Valenti.

WETZEL, Johann Jakob.
Zurich: Orell, Fussli et Compagnie, 1824. Folio (485 x 320 mm). Original off-white plain wrappers loose in the original drab pale brown portfolio, paper label on front cover (printed advertisement on inside back cover), green cloth ties. A little wear to spine of portfolio, a few marks in the margins of the view of Desenzano. A particularly fine copy: tall, clean and uncut. 15 superb aquatint views by Rordorf after Wetzel with contemporary hand-colouring, all but two plates watermarked 1824 (the exceptions dated 1822 and 1825). First edition of this rare suite of plates with superb contemporary hand-colouring, executed with enormous subtlety and exhibiting a beautiful gradation of tone. Johann Jakob Wetzel (1781-1834) was one of the leading Swiss landscape painters of the Romantic era, the popularity of whose work meant that a "whole staff of aquatint engravers was employed in imitating his watercolour drawings" (The Print Collector's Quarterly, volume 13, 1926). He trained under fellow Swiss artists, Johann Heinrich Bleuler, Johann Walser and Gabriel Lory, and during his career garnered some distinguished patronage: his "transparent painting" of the Rhine Falls was purchased by the Austrian emperor Franz II in 1814. He began a series of works on the Swiss and Italian lakes in 1819, designed the plates for an illustrated edition of Byron's Prisoner of Chillon (1818) and was keenly aware of the European-wide appetite for the "sublime" and "picturesque" aspects of Swiss and Italian scenery, producing a series of small, affordable views of well known tourist spots as well as t … [Click Below for Full Description]

"A statement of the principles upon which the Society was founded and of its aspirations. printed on their own press. [and] probably edited by Father Rapp himself" (quoted in Sabin). The Society had earlier published just one other work, a small leaflet of songs. "Of the more than two hundred communistic societies that have sprung up in the United States, the Harmony Society was one of the most successful. In form the Society was a communistic theocracy, with Rapp the actual dictator. His religious teachings were those of Lutheran pietism heavily overlaid with a milleniarism derived from Bengal and Jung-Stilling, a fantastic interpretation of Genesis out of Swedenborg, various minor features from Böhme and other mystics, and the practice of celibacy, adopted in 1807, which seemed to follow logically from his millenarian views. From 1814 to 1824 the community was established in the Wabash Valley at Harmony, Posey County, Ind., but between fever-and-ague and barbarous neighbors the Harmonists found themselves neither safe nor comfortable, and in 1825 they sold their lands, through Richard Flower as their a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Monroe, James
Washington, D.C., 1824. 9 pp. total, pen and ink on paper. Creased from prior folding, some tears along creases, light dampstaining to one letter. In green cloth chemise. 9 pp. total, pen and ink on paper. A series of three letters from James Monroe, written as Secretary of State and President, concerning his nephew and namesake James, son of his brother Andrew Augustine Monroe (1759-1826).James Monroe (1799-1870) was the promising young son of Monroe's unsuccessful elder brother Andrew. The young James "had run wild on his father's ill-managed, decaying plantation in Virginia and had little schooling; then his uncle (who at that time combined the offices of secretary of state and secretary of war) sent him, at his own desire, to the West Point Military Academy and, determined, in spite of the boy's earlier disadvantages to turn him into a useful citizen, wrote him letters giving him much good advice, both moral and practical. He felt evidently, that the boy required stern discipline, and thought it necessary to conceal his real affection for him beneath a tone of austerity, almost of harshness. His bark, however, was worse than his bite. That real affection existed, real interest in the boy's welfare and true kindliness of heart towards him, is shown by the great amount of time and trouble and the meticulous thought which the distinguished statesman, busy with more important affairs devoted to his young nephew's career" (Davidson, p. 38). In the first letter, dated 16 July 1814, Monroe writes as Secretary of State to his nephew James, then newly enrolled at West Point. … [Click Below for Full Description]

(Manuscript Account Book) Eichelberger, Jacob
(York County, Pennsylvania), 1824. Oblong 12mo. 88 pp. Contemporary calf backed wall-paper covered boards; binding rubbed at edges with minor loss of paper and leather, otherwise very good. Eichelberger's account book contains a list of expenses as well as income relating to the Eichelberger farm. Entries are organized chronologically and list the item received or service performed as well as the price paid for the item or service. Eichelberger listed prices in both dollars and pounds. Typical expenses include the hiring of farm hands, food (often dried pork), county taxes, and the digging of a well. Eichelberger records far more income than expenses. He sold a number of items including wheat, apples, beef, rye, and animal fat. Eichelberger provided board to a widow by the name of Miller. Perhaps the most interesting sources of Eichelberger's income are the animals he sold. Between 1806 and 1809, Eichelberger records the sale of 86 horses, accounting for the vast majority of his income during those years. He also records the sale of a few steer, sheep, and hogs, but never in quantities as great as the horses. Several pages of the book record Eichelberger's duties as the executor of the will of his father, George Allen Eichelberger. These entries list the name of the beneficiary, the amount of the estate granted them, and the date on which the transaction took place. The final entry in the book, which is chronologically out of place and dated 1807, records Eichelberger's activities following the death of his father, such as traveling to Carlisle for the readin … [Click Below for Full Description]

[298] pp. Rare series on Brazilian botany with 70 beautiful lithographed plates, published in 14 instalments by the French explorer, botanist and entomologist Auguste de Saint-Hilaire (1779-1853). Beginning with part 9 his two co-authors are named on the wrapper as well. After a journey of six years through Brazil (1816-1822), he brought home to France a vast collection of plants, mammals, birds and reptiles. There he dedicated himself to the publication of the results of his Brazilian journeys by working on several publications at the same time. The long journey and the pressure of work took their toll, however, and Saint-Hilaire fell ill. He was able to continue his work but not alone. Two respected colleagues, Adrien de Jussieu and Jacques Cambessèdes took over the largest part of the work. De Saint-Hilaire recovered to some degree and together they continued their work. A note in part 9 assures the readers and subscribers that the style and quality will not suffer from this change. Saint-Hilaire intended to issue 50 parts, but only these 14 were actually printed. Each instalment contains 5 plates with accompanying text. Some text leaves in the last 3 parts foxed, a tear in the back wrapper of on … [Click Below for Full Description]

During the French Revolution he was sent to prison, but he was released after the 9. Thermidor. Pages 1-162 relate to this revolutionary period.

Autograph letter, signed, written in brown ink on paper, with a note in a different hand recording a related payment. [1], [1 blank] pp. A signed autograph letter by Pierre-Joseph Redouté, acknowledging his reciept of 30 francs from "Monsieur Debure libraire" for the 30th and final part of Les Roses, Redouté's most famous work, which was published in installments between 1817 and 1824. This must be the Paris bookseller Jean-Jacques Debure (1765-1853) or his younger brother Marie-Jacques Debure (1767-1847), who were "libraires du Roi et de la Bibliotheque du Roi" from 1821 to 1830. The book was printed and published by Firmin Didot. Oddly, an addition by a different hand below left notes "payé le 26 fevrier" (paid 26 February). Perhaps Redouté is writing to Firmin Didot and he was to reimburse Debure for this expense. It in any case suggests that Debure is not merely buying copies of the book to sell but was involved in the publication of Redouté's Les Roses in some manner. In fine condition, with only a small piece of paper stuck to the top right corner, not approaching the text.
