        The Adventures of Hajji Baba of Ispahan

      London: John Murray, 1824. First Edition. Boards. Near fine. 3 vols. 1st edition, 1st printing with the dedication to Dr. Fundgruben intact. The first peek into Persia, the best ever capturing of what it was in that time, fact or fiction, and still the most popular Oriental novel in English. Original boards, sympathetically rebacked with identical gray paper, original paper labels laid down. Vol. I label 70% chipped, vol. III label with a smaller chip, all 3 grubby, name on pastedowns, but very good, scarcer in boards uncut, than Internet clicks on the "I am under 18" button, and not to be compared to rebound sets, or mistaken for its sequel, The Adventures of Hajji Baba of Ispahan in England (1828), which is easy to find, even in boards. At a pressing point of British colonial power, the Crown established a mission in Persia with an 1809 treaty of alliance. In 1810 they sent James J. Morier as Secretary of Embassy, and from 1814 to 1816 he served as Chargé d'Affaires. The choice was a brilliant one. Sir James observed without appearing to do so, represented Britain while seeming a fair arbiter, advanced their interests under the pretext of cooperation, made his presence digestible by adopting Qajar Persian customs, stayed quieter than a painting on a wall, and came away with an essential grasp of the culture, and an insight into the regime, not visible even to the natives. He returned home, published reports, and accounts of his travel, and then this novel, which he coyly disconnected from by presenting the picaresque narrative as merely his translation of the coming of age autobiography of one Hajji Baba, a wholly fictional, Candide like, character. In the charade, Hajji Baba tells the tale of his rise from poverty to become the Shah of Persia's emissary to Britain, but when he's recalled in disgrace, and possibly execution, he entrusts the diary of his life to Morier as his chosen facilitator for publication. It's an adventure to be sure, drawing splendid character portraits, and descriptions, but it's a satirical one, ridiculing Persian society as violent, the culture as scandalously dishonest and decadent, and the people as rascals, cowards, fools, and puerile villains.

        Journal of a Second Voyage for the Discovery of a North-west Passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific

      London: John Murray, Publisher to the Admiralty, 1824. Hardcover. Near fine. xxx, [2], 571 p. 27 cm. 27 b&w plates (including frontispiece and one plate unrelated to the book), 13 maps (9 of which fold out, 8 of them at rear). Also some b&w in-text illustrations. Rebound in quarter leather with marbled paper boards. Newer endpapers with bookplate residue on front pastedown. Slight wrinkling to pages. Title continues: "Performed in the Years 1821-22-23, in His Majesty's Ships Fury and Hecla, Under the orders of Captain William Edward Parry, R.N., F.R.S., and Commander of the Expedition." Captain Parry's second voyage to the Arctic failed to discover a passage to the Pacific, but he managed to chart and explore a considerable area of the Arctic, previously unknown, stretching from Southampton Island north to Baffin Island. In addition, the almost continual contact with the Inuit of Melville Peninsula yielded a wealth of information on their culture, way of life, and language which was included in this published version of Parry's journal of the voyage.

Dekorative Halblederbände der Zeit mit je 2 Rückenschildern und etwas Rückenvergoldung (leicht berieben, 1 Bezug leicht abweichend). Erste Ausgabe. – ADB VI, 349 – Ziegenfuss I, 301. – Carl August von Eschenmayer (1768-1852), Professor der Philosophie und Medizin in Tübingen, ursprünglich von Schelling beeinflusst, später durch Jacobi zur Forderung einer „Nichtphilosophie“ bestimmt, die über die rationale Philosophie hinausgeht und diese im Glauben ergänzt. Der Glaube soll bei Eschenmayer die Spekulation ergänzen; über dem Rationalismus und Mystizismus steht der Supranaturalismus. - Allerdings machte sich Eschenmayer „vorzüglich bekannt durch seine philosophischen Erklärungen der Äußerungen somnambuler Personen, wie die der sogenannten „Seherin von Prevorst“, indem er einer mystischen Auffassung des Lebens huldigte und mannigfache Erscheinungen desselben durch Einwirkung von Geistern zu deuten suchte“, vgl. Pierer's Universal-Lexikon, Band 5. Altenburg 1858, S. 885 f. 886. Dies trug ihm einige kritische Bemerkungen ein. In Herders Conversations-Lexikon von 1854, wird er als „Philosoph von mehr Gemüth und Phantasie als Scharfsinn“ qualifiziert (vgl. dort Band 2, S. 608); und Meyers Großes Konversation verweist darauf, dass Eschenmeyer von Immermann im »Münchhausen« unter dem Namen »Eschenmichel« satirisch dargestellt worden ist.

        Il Sacro Tempio di Possagno eretto dal Marchese Antonio Canova.

      per Nicolò Bettoni,, Milano 1824 - In folio (49,5 x 33 cm.), pp. 8 non numerate, frontespizio compreso, lettera dedicatoria e Descrizione del Tempio - 3 incisioni (Pianta, Spaccato e Prospetto del Tempio, tecnica acquatinta in tonalità seppia, 45 x 31 cm.) eseguite da Vincenzo Bianchi, A. Angeli e G. Luciolli su invenzione di Canova. Brossura editoriale cartacea (53 x 37 cm.), titoli a stampa al piatto anteriore entro cornice, in barbe. Assoluta rarità bibliografica, completa, perfettamente conservata e totalmente editoriale. Prima opera a stampa sul Tempio canoviano. In una lettera del 5 agosto 1818, inviata all'amico Giannantonio Selva, Canova dichiarava di essersi deciso a ricostruire la chiesa di Possagno completamente a sue spese. L'idea era quella di realizzare un grandioso edificio circolare dotato di pronao, richiamo al Pantheon di Roma, ma con colonne doriche, come il Partenone di Atene. Commissionò a Pietro Bosio i disegni dell'edificio, i quali furono poi sottoposti alla supervisione dei colleghi dell'Accademia di San Luca e dello stesso Selva. Morto quest'ultimo nel gennaio 1819, Canova trovò il sostegno di Antonio Diedo. L'11 luglio di quell'anno i possagnesi in festa accolsero il compaesano per la posa della prima pietra. La direzione dei lavori fu affidata a suo cugino Giovanni Zardo detto "Fantolin". Il Canova non riuscì a vedere la sua opera conclusa poiché morì il 13 ottobre 1822; i lavori, in base al suo testamento, furono affidati al fratellastro Giovanni Battista Sartori. Negli anni successivi il progetto originario subì qualche modifica, anche per far posto al gruppo della Pietà e alla tomba dell'artista. Finalmente, nel 1830, il tempio venne concluso e il 7 maggio 1832 venne solennemente consacrato dallo stesso Sartori, nel frattempo divenuto Vescovo. Lettera dedicatoria introduttiva di Vincenzo Bianchi a Filippo Francesco Magawly Cerati, nato Philip Francis Magawly de Calry (1787-1835), politico irlandese naturalizzato italiano che, stabilitosi dal 1802 a Parma, ricoprì importanti cariche durante il governo provvisorio. Due copie conservate rispettivamente nella Collezione privata Fondazione Cosway Maria di Lodi e nella Biblioteca del Museo di Roma. Unica copia reperita in vendita, apparsa in catalogo nel 2012 alla "The London international antiquarian book fair", anch'essa con le 3 medesime incisioni, conservato in legatura moderna, definito "portfolio eccezionalmente raro".

        The Witch of New England; bound with: Hobomok: A Tale of Early Times By an American

      Philadelphia; Boston: Carey & Lea; Cummings, Hilliard & Co, 1824. First editions of two 1824 novels set in Puritan New England, both dealing with the theme of romance between Native Americans and white settlers. The early nineteenth century saw a wave of novels set in the early American colonies, reflecting the popularity of historical fiction by Walter Scott and James Fenimore Cooper, and looking ahead to the fiftieth anniversary of the United States. The Witch of New England, published anonymously by poet James Cadwalader McCall, is the more conventional novel, following one white family's entanglement with the local tribes, as the infatuated Sachem Samoset attempts to abduct Agnes Bradley, and the "generous savage" Haneda sacrifices her happiness to help Edward Bradley escape the Indian camp. (The exasperated contemporary annotator of this copy notes that Edward's captivity narrative is lifted "verbatim" from Revolutionary general Israel Putnam's experience, and that an Indian maiden is unlikely to "blush.") Published anonymously by abolitionist Lydia Maria Child, Hobomok was a far more controversial work, depicting a consensual (if never wholly equal) relationship between a white woman and a Pequod chief. Like McCall, Child foregrounds the sacrifice of a noble Native American, as Hobomok tearfully leaves his white wife Mary Conant and their child so that she can marry her first love, an Englishman long believed to be dead. In an 1825 review of both novels, the North American Review largely dismisses The Witch of New England as "ridiculous," but notes that Hobomok has suffered from the "general prejudice against the catastrophe" of miscegenation: "we doubt not that it will one day be regarded with greater favor." A very good copy, bringing together two scarce and complementary early American novels. Twelvemo, [1-4], 5-217, [1]; [i-iv], 5-188, [2]. Contemporary calf, red morocco spine label lettered in gilt, spine ruled in gilt. Amherst College ink-stenciled library mark to front pastedown; contemporary ink annotations, mainly to The Witch of New England. Margins of several pages in The Witch of New England torn or trimmed; Hobomok bound without half-title. Front free endpaper excised, text browned with scattering foxing; light shelfwear to binding.

        The Private Journal of Captain G. F. Lyon, of H.M.S. Hecla, during the Recent Voyage of Discovery under Captain Parry.

      London: John Murray,, 1824. Octavo (208 x 128 mm). Contemporary purple calf, broad gilt-hatched flat bands to spine, twin rules gilt either side, red morocco label to second compartment, the others with central quatrefoil in gilt, multiple gilt rules to head and foot, decorative blind border to covers, marbled endpapers. Engraved frontispiece and 6 similar plates after original drawings by the author, folding route map. 20th-century monogram bookplate to front pastedown, blind-stamp reading "Rodlease, Boldre, Lymington", listed Georgian mansion, to the front free endpaper; late-19th-century pencilled marginalia to p. 65 et seq. Spine darkened, subtly repaired at head, joints and corners skilfully refurbished, small dent to top edge, a few light scuffs and indentations to sides, browning to half-title from old laid-in plant leaf, sporadic pale foxing to lower margins of text-block, upper outer corners of sigs. 2B8-2C1 and 2C7-2D1 slightly creased and soiled, light spotting to plates, map very faintly offset, otherwise a few trivial spots or marks. A very good copy, complete with the half-title and dedication leaf. First edition. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author, "Miss Smith, with the best regards of an old acquaintance - Geo. F. Lyon" on the title page. Commissioned lieutenant in 1814, Lyon (1795-1832) accompanied Joseph Ritchie's abortive expedition into southern Libya in 1818 (having replaced Frederick Marryat), publishing a well-received account of his travels in 1821, the same year that he was promoted commander and "appointed to the Hecla under the orders of Captain William Edward Parry in the Fury. The expedition, Parry's second in the search for the north-west passage, sailed on 8 May 1821, entered the Arctic region through Hudson Strait, examined Repulse Bay and the neighbouring coast of Melville peninsula, and wintered at a small island to the eastward of the Frozen Strait. The next summer they went further north and entered Fury and Hecla Strait, but the season being then far advanced they turned back, wintered at Igloolik (lat. 69°21' N, long. 81°44' W), and came home in autumn 1823, as signs of scurvy among the crew made it inadvisable to stay. On 13 November Lyon was promoted captain, and the following year he published The private journal of Captain G. F. Lyon" (ODNB). The next year he led an unsuccessful expedition to Repulse Bay with instructions to continue the survey of the mainland Begun by John Franklin. His Private Journal proved popular and there was a second edition the following year; this copy is appealingly presented in a strictly contemporary, unusual binding of purple calf.

        Friendly advice on the management and education of children: addressed to parents of the middle and labouring classes of society. By the author of "Hints for the improvement of early education, and nursery discipline."

      London: Printed by Richard Taylor...for John Hatchard, 1824. [6], 98pp, [2]. With terminal advertisement leaf. Uncut in original publisher's printed blue boards. Rubbed, with some marking, creasing to corners, small split to base of spine. Occasional marginal loss, touching pagination of c5. Inscription to head of title. A rare survival in unsophisticated condition of Mrs Louisa Gurney Hoare's (1784-1836) second educational work, designed to supplement the privileges of 'all the numerous excellent schools established in all parts of the country' by avoiding 'neglectful treatment of the children' in the homes of the intended petit bourgeois and proletarian audience. Instructions are largely related to manners and deportment. The author's enlightened attitudes do, however, extend to outlining that children have rights and are due respect as well as to be respectful of others. As a text it was frequently reprinted (including by the Religious Tract) although perhaps not quite as popular as Hoare's first work, on Early education, this first edition is now remarkably scarce. COPAC locates only two copies, at BL and Oxford. . First edition. 12mo in 6s.

      n.p.: [circa 1824]. Square 12mo. (145 x 110 mm), ll. 24 unnumbered, 8 with proof printings of woodcut vignettes bound in landscape format. Contemporary straight-grained blue morocco, with gilt roll border and emblematic tools (an angler's basket and a fish) in corners and at the center, gilt dentelles, a.e.g. Ink gift inscription on the first plate by "Thomas Bewick to Mr. Arkwright, 7 Aug. 1824," in ink. Bookplate of Arkwright of Sutton Scarsdale to front pastedown. A very good copy. A unique album of woodcut vignettes by Thomas Bewick, all with a pastoral or fishing theme, presented by Bewick to Richard Arkwright. Included are, 'elderly gentleman angler on horseback,' 'angler disturbed while fishing when his dog barks at a bull,' 'heron catches an eel,' 'cows in the water,' two images of fish: a 'John Dory' and a 'Brandling,' 'a well-dressed man rides a grey horse leading a train of five other horses,' and 'a sow yoked with sticks watches as nine of her piglets run through an open gate.' Most were intended for the abandoned History of British Fishes and were attributed to Bewick's later phase by Iain Bain. Bewick is best known for his wood engravings, especially for the miniature, precise, and often humorous vignettes referred to by him as "tale-pieces."

        THE COMPLETE ANGLER

      London: John Major, 1824. Second Major Edition. The charming pictorial binding is the perfect finishing touch for this truly complete edition of the beloved classic. Walton (1593-1683) lived in turbulent times, and he suffered personal tragedy (he endured the deaths of both his wives and eight of his nine children), but, largely because of the present work, he is forever identified with quietude and serenity. First published in 1653, his "Compleat Angler" is the classic work on the art of angling, infused with wise fish lore, written by an indomitable angler who knew every haunt of fresh water fish in the south of England. But, as Day says, "the love of angling is only the outward sign of a gentle inward grace, the soul of a thoroughly good man who loves peace and quiet meditation. If any one man created the idyll of the English countryside, it was Walton. The modern reader may shake his head at Walton's complete absence of 'social consciousness' and the perplexing conundrums of men and life; but the headshaking is ultimately stilled by the naïve genius who evokes with all the charm of an old woodcut an England of sweet streams, smiling fields, cheery taverns, and unshakable faith in God and His wonderful world." The present copy comes from an important edition, being the first issued by John Major (1782-1849). It includes "the notes of all previous editors carefully revised and amended" (Oliver) and was lavishly illustrated by some of the best artists of the day, including Huysman and Lely. The notes were ably edited by Richard Thomson (1794-1865), Librarian of the London Institution and respected scholar. The attractive binding captures the tranquility of the work beautifully, and the level of workmanship suggests an accomplished atelier like the Bayntun Bindery in Bath, which produced a number of fine, but unsigned, pictorial bindings.. 195 x 125 mm. (7 3/4 x 5"). lviii, 416 pp.With an introductory essay, the Linnæan arrangement of river fish, illustrative notes, and general index. Second Major Edition. INTRICATELY DECORATED LATE 19TH CENTURY NAVY MOROCCO INLAID WITH A DETAILED SCENE (unsigned but quite likely by Bayntun), upper cover with large inlaid panel depicting an angler sitting in his boat at dawn, this picture painted with morocco in more than 20 different colors, with an orange sun rising over purple mountains, ploughed fields, green hills and forests, and a tranquil blue-green lake, where a gray-haired gent is casting his line from his flat-bottomed boat, his angling basket at his feet, very expertly rebacked preserving original backstrip, flat spine with inlaid tan title label above an elongated gilt-framed panel containing two inlaid fish, one about to bite on the fly at the end of the angler's line, pastedown framed by blue morocco with gilt-ruled sides and fish medallions at corners, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. In a fine modern brown cloth clamshell box. With 14 copper plates on India paper, with original tissue guards, and 77 woodcuts in the text. Oliver 23; Coigney 25. A hint of soil and darkening to the leather, gilt on the spine slightly dulled, faint browning at edges of text, but still a very pleasing copy, the binding without any wear, the text with no signs of use. The charming pictorial binding is the perfect finishing touch for this truly complete edition of the beloved classic. Walton (1593-1683) lived in turbulent times, and he suffered personal tragedy (he endured the deaths of both his wives and eight of his nine children), but, largely because of the present work, he is forever identified with quietude and serenity. First published in 1653, his "Compleat Angler" is the classic work on the art of angling, infused with wise fish lore, written by an indomitable angler who knew every haunt of fresh water fish in the south of England. But, as Day says, "the love of angling is only the outward sign of a gentle inward grace, the soul of a thoroughly good man who loves peace and quiet meditation. If any one man created the idyll of the English countryside, it was Walton. The modern reader may shake his head at Walton's complete absence of 'social consciousness' and the perplexing conundrums of men and life; but the headshaking is ultimately stilled by the naïve genius who evokes with all the charm of an old woodcut an England of sweet streams, smiling fields, cheery taverns, and unshakable faith in God and His wonderful world." The present copy comes from an important edition, being the first issued by John Major (1782-1849). It includes "the notes of all previous editors carefully revised and amended" (Oliver) and was lavishly illustrated by some of the best artists of the day, including Huysman and Lely. The notes were ably edited by Richard Thomson (1794-1865), Librarian of the London Institution and respected scholar. The attractive binding captures the tranquility of the work beautifully, and the level of workmanship suggests an accomplished atelier like the Bayntun Bindery in Bath, which produced a number of fine, but unsigned, pictorial bindings.

First edition thus: newly revised and corrected. William Hogarth (1697-1764) was a painter and engraver, sometimes described as the father of British painting, though not the earliest English-born painter of note.

      n.p.: [circa 1824]. Square 12mo. (145 x 110 mm), ll. 24 unnumbered, 8 with proof printings of woodcut vignettes bound in landscape format. Contemporary straight-grained blue morocco, with gilt roll border and emblematic tools (an angler’s basket and a fish) in corners and at the center, gilt dentelles, a.e.g. Ink gift inscription on the first plate by “Thomas Bewick to Mr. Arkwright, 7 Aug. 1824,” in ink. Bookplate of Arkwright of Sutton Scarsdale to front pastedown. A very good copy. A unique album of woodcut vignettes by Thomas Bewick, all with a pastoral or fishing theme, presented by Bewick to Richard Arkwright. Included are, ‘elderly gentleman angler on horseback,’ ‘angler disturbed while fishing when his dog barks at a bull,’ ‘heron catches an eel,’ ‘cows in the water,’ two images of fish: a ‘John Dory’ and a ‘Brandling,’ ‘a well-dressed man rides a grey horse leading a train of five other horses,’ and ‘a sow yoked with sticks watches as nine of her piglets run through an open gate.’ Most were intended for the abandoned History of British Fishes and were attributed to Bewick’s later phase by Iain Bain. Bewick is best known for his wood engravings, especially for the miniature, precise, and often humorous vignettes referred to by him as “tale-pieces.”

They are mainly freshwater birds, often with brightly coloured legs as reflected in the English names of six species, as well as the specific names of two of these and the Green Sandpiper. They are typically associated with northern hemisphere temperate regions for breeding. Some of this group - notably the Green Sandpiper - nests in trees, using the old nests of other birds, usually thrushes. Original chromolithographs on a vellin type paper. Recent hand colouring.

Presentation copy, inscribed by the author, "Miss Smith, with the best regards of an old acquaintance - Geo. F. Lyon" on the title page. Commissioned lieutenant in 1814, Lyon (1795-1832) accompanied Joseph Ritchie's abortive expedition into southern Libya in 1818 (having replaced Frederick Marryat), publishing a well-received account of his travels in 1821, the same year that he was promoted commander and "appointed to the Hecla under the orders of Captain William Edward Parry in the Fury. The expedition, Parry's second in the search for the north-west passage, sailed on 8 May 1821, entered the Arctic region through Hudson Strait, examined Repulse Bay and the neighbouring coast of Melville peninsula, and wintered at a small island to the eastward of the Frozen Strait. The next summer they went further north and entered Fury and Hecla Strait, but the season being then far advanced they turned back, wintered at Igloolik (lat. 69°21' N, long. 81°44' W), and came home in autumn 1823, as signs of scurvy among the crew made it inadvisable to stay. On 13 November Lyon was promoted captain, and the following year he published The private journal of Captain G. F. Lyon" (ODNB). The next year he led an unsuccessful expedition to Repulse Bay with instructions to continue the survey of the mainland Begun by John Franklin. His Private Journal proved popular and there was a second edition the following year; this copy is appealingly presented in a strictly contemporary, unusual binding of purple calf. Howgego II L52.

An album of architectural drawings of the Palazzo Mancini and the Villa Medici, successive homes of the Académie de France in Rome. The first two draw­ings are plans of the ground floor and top floor of Palazzo Mancini, indicating respectively the instructional rooms and the lodgings of the pensionnaires, as implemented in 1784. In 1793, the Academy departed Palazzo Mancini, and was homeless until relocated in 1803 in the Villa Medici. The remaining ten drawings are plans, sections, and elevations of the Villa Medici, constituting a survey undertaken in 1817 by the architect Charles Norry, assisted apparently by his elder son and pupil, Charles-Désiré Norry (1796-1818), and by Lucien-Tyrté Van Cleemputte (1795-1871), who had won the previous Grand Prix for Architecture (1816). Charles Norry had trained in the studio of Charles de Wailly, and afterwards collaborated with him on projects both at home and abroad; in 1779-1782, while De Wailly worked in The Netherlands, Norry was Inspecteur des Travaux during construction of the Théâtre de l'Odéon in Paris. 1 He then made a voyage to Italy, where he met Séroux d'Agincourt, and became a supplier of drawings for the embryonic 'Histoire de l'Art par les Monumens'. 2 On returning from Italy, Norry's practice developed steadily, despite the disruption of the Revolution. A founder member of the Institut d'Égypte, he was one of four architects on the Egyptian expedition, charged specifically with designing barracks, hospitals, and a gunpowder factory. 3 In 1803, he became a membre titulaire of the Conseil des Bâtiments civils, and later was appointed by the Ministère de l'Interieur as Chef du Bureau des Bâtiments civils. Norry arrived in Rome on 6 October 1817 and was accommodated in the Villa Medici. His son, Charles-Désiré, was then attached to the Académie de France as an external student (not as a pensionnaire), 4 and during Norry's residence, Ingres executed drawings of both father 5 and son. 6 The Villa Medici had fallen into a poor state before its occupation by the Académie de France. In 1803, the new director of the French Academy, Joseph-Benoît Suvée, ordered the architect Grandjean de Montigny to draw plans of the building, and these had been submitted to Napoleon together with a detailed report on its potential utilisation and an estimate of the cost of remodelling. 7 In 1803, an Italian architect was instructed to proceed with the conversion. Building work continued for nine months: windows were lowered to admit more light, interior partitions were erected, doors were opened, and other doors closed, and the gardens were replanted and ornamented by an ensemble of antique statues, reliefs, and other artefacts. The current director of the Academy, Charles Thévenin, was determined to continue restoration of the fabric of the Villa and to restore also the Academy's collections. At some point, Norry undertook the survey, producing 'the first truly reliable drawings of the Villa'. 8 It was presented to the Minister of the Interior, vicomte Joseph Henri Joachim Lainé (1767-1835), in late February or early March 1818. 9 Norry also communicated to Lainé a list of books needed in the library. 10 For comparative purposes, Norry included in his survey two drawings showing how the Academy had been accommodated in Palazzo Mancini. The first is a plan of the ground floor, indicating the principal rooms used for instruction: the 'Salle à manger' (refectory, where geometry was taught), the 'Académie [du nud] d'hiver' and 'Académie d'Eté' (halls for studying and copying models), and the 'Salle de Marc-Aurèle'. The second sheet shows the lodging of the pensionnaires on the third floor (twelve bedrooms, with the position of the bed indicated in each; a ‘Salle Commune'; and 'Latrines'). Both plans are dated 1784. They may be copies of plans drawn by Joseph Subleyras (1745-1810), an architect attached to the Academy; 11 or based on plans drawn in August 1775 by Jean-Augustin Renard. 12 It is conceivable that Norry made them in Rome, from originals in the library of the Académie de France; more likely, however, they were copied by him later, in Paris. The first of the ten sheets representing the Villa Medici is a general plan, with details of five garden pavilions which had been remodelled into ateliers for the pensionnaires. The second drawing is a plan of the ground floor, on which Norry has stated the name or purpose of each room, and located eight statues and busts. 13 The next five drawings are plans of the upper floors. On the plan of the Étage principal, Norry indicates how the collection of casts ('statues moulées sur l'antique') is displayed (the positions of thirty-two casts can be pinpointed through a key), also the organisation of the casts in the adjacent 'Gallerie d'antiques', and locations of statues of Louis xiv and xviii in the 'Salle d'Exposition'. 14 The last three sheets are elevations or sections; 15 the elevation of the highly-ornamented garden façade is of particular interest, as it depicts the reliefs and busts before successive alterations. 16 As announced in the manuscript title, the drawings in our album are copies, 'Le tout, d'après les dessins Originaux levés Mesurés rapportés et déssinés sur les Lieux par M.M. Norry, père et fils Architectes. et Mr Vandemputte, jeune, architecte, pensionnaire du Roi en 1817'. The originals, some of which are signed by Norry, were presented to Lainé in 1818, and are now in the Bibliothèque de l'Institut de France. 17 Our copies were produced by laboriously tracing the original drawings onto a translucent support of tracing paper. The tracings must have been done immediately, before submission of the original drawings to the Academy in 1818. Several years later, the thin sheets were laid on card, and assembled as an album by a bookbinder. The manuscript half-title (Villa Medici) is a sheet of paper watermarked 1824, the terminus post quem for production of the album. The copies probably were made by or at the behest of Charles Norry, as a record of his work, even perhaps as a memorial of his late son (Charles-Désire died in Paris, 27 September 1818). Several drawings have additions in graphite, as for example the 'Plan du deuxième Étage', where the placement of furniture in the 'Logement du Directeur' and in the 'Bibliothèque' is indicated, and the 'Plan de L'Entresol' where the furniture in a student's 'Logement' is shown. Unlike the originals, all of the copies have scale bars (in mètres and toises). Alternatively, the copies may have been made by Lucien-Tyrté Van Cleemputte, as testi­mony to his involvement in the project. It may be significant that the phrase 'et Mr Vandemputte, jeune, architecte, pensionnaire du Roi en 1817' appears on the manuscript title in this volume, but not in the original set of drawings. Van Cleemputte returned to Paris in June 1822. 18 In 1824 he exhibited a number of drawings he had made in Rome.

A plan drawn by Norry in 1781 of the area between Oberneustadt and the Residenzschloß Kassel is Staatliche Museen Kassel, Graphische Sammlung, L GS 13821 (http://lineamenta.biblhertz.it; link). 2. The preparatory materials gathered by Seroux d'Agincourt for his great work were bequeathed to the Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana (Ms Lat 9839-9849, 13479-13480). Norry's contribution includes plans of monuments in Benevento, Perugia, and Rimini (Henri Loyrette, 'Séroux d'Agincourt et les origines de l'histoire de l'art médiéval' in Revue de l'art, 48, 1980, pp.43, 51 note 26, 53 note 70; Valerio Ascani, 'La documentazione grafica inedita sul duomo di Benevento nella raccolta di Séroux d'Agincourt' in Arte medievale, 3, no. 2, 1989, pp.149, 152 note 37). Among other drawings executed by Norry in Italy are a 'Vue des Thermes de Dioclétien à Rome' (Private Collection, Paris; Charles de Wailly: peintre architecte, op. cit., p.114 no. 28 and reproduction p.29) and a pen and wash drawing in the Stammbuch von Brack dated 22 July 1784 (In Erlesen gestiftet: die Stiftung der Gebrüder Linel in der Buchkunst- und Graphiksammlung des Museums für Kunsthandwerk Frankfurt am Main, 5. Dezember 1991 bis 16. Februar 1992, Frankfurt am Main 1991, pp.154, 159). 3. Norry published an account of his experiences as Relation de l'expédition d'Égypte (Paris 1799; English translation, London 1800) and also wrote a play, 'L'Entrée des Français au Kaire' (Paris 1830). He was an early member of a pseudo-Egyptian secret society, the Ordre Sacré des Sophisiens, founded in 1801; see Darius A. Spieth, Napoleon's sorcerers: the Sophisians (Newark, de 2007), pp.56, 154. 4. Catalogue général des manuscrits des bibliothèques publiques de France, Paris: Bibliothèque de l'Arsenal, by Henry Martin (Paris 1892), vi, p.303 no. 6648 f.103: 'Lettre de [vicomte Joseph Henri Joachim] Lainé, ministre de l'interieur, à Norry relative à une demande de gratification pour son fils, étudiant en Italie' (31 January 1817). Charles-Désiré evidently arrived in Rome before Easter 1817, as he is recorded in the Stato delle Anime, parish of S. Lorenzo in Lucina, in 1817 (Hans Naef, Die Bildniszeichnungen von J.-A.-D. Ingres, Bern 1978, ii, p.232). 5. Charles Norry: Naef, op. cit., ii, pp.229-233 ('Die Architekten Charles und Charles-Désiré Norry'); iv, pp.400-401 no. 215, signed, inscribed Par Son très respectueux serviteur Ingres, à Madame Norry. The drawing was offered by Sotheby's, 'Revolution in Art', New York, 24 January 2002, lot 96 (ex-William S. Paley Collection). 6. Charles-Désiré Norry: Naef, op. cit., ii, pp.229-233; iv, pp.402-403 no. 216, signed, inscribed, and dated at lower left Ingres à Mr. Norry | Pere. | rome | 1817. The drawing is in the Morgan Library & Museum in New York; see European drawings 1375-1825, compiled by Cara Dufour Denison and Helen B. Mules (New York 1981) p.130 no. 121, and French master drawings: from the Pierpont Morgan Library, by Cara Dufour Denison, catalogue of an exhibition held at the Musée du Louvre, Paris, 1 June-30 August 1993 (New York 1993), pp.226-227 no. 103. 7. Glenn M. Andres, The Villa Medici in Rome (New York & London 1976), i, pp.472-474. Grandjean de Montigny's drawings are lost. 8. La Villa Médicis, 1: Documentation et description, by Bernard Toulier (Rome 1989), p.72: 'Après quelque temps, ils entreprennent ensemble le relevé. La mise au net est effectuée sur place. Ce sont les premiers relevés réellement fiables de la villa'. We have been unable to consult a 'Notice sur le relevé de la ville Médicis par Charles Norry' by A.L.T. Vaudoyer, presented to the Académie des Beaux-arts in 1846 by his son, the architect Léon Vaudoyer, and now Bibliothèque de l'Institut de France, Ms 1034 (Procès-verbaux de l'Académie des Beaux-arts: 1845-1849, edited by Sybille Bellamy-Brown, Paris 2008, pp.185-186; Catalogue géné­ral des manuscrits des bibliothèques publiques de France, Paris: Bibliothèque de l'Institut [de France], by Marcel Bouteron and Jean Camille Tremblot, Paris 1928, p.230 no. 1034). 9. Martin, op. cit., vi, p.303 no. 6648 f.103: 'Lettre du ministère de l'intérieur [J.L.J. Lainé] relative aux plans de la villa Médicis présentés par Norry' (6 March 1818); 'Lettre du ministre Lainé accusant à Norry réception de ses plans de la villa Médicis et accordant une gratification à le son fils' (20 April 1818). See also 'Correspondance des directeurs de l'Académie de France à Rome, Tome troisième: Directorat de Charles Thévenin (1816-1822)', edited by François Fossier', p.209 no. 163 (link). 10. Lainé acknowledged receipt of this list in a letter to Thévenin on 27 March 1818 ('Correspondance des directeurs de l'Académie de France à Rome, Tome troisième: Directorat de Charles Thévenin', op. cit., p.209 no. 163). See also Lettres adressées au Baron François Gérard, peintre d'histoire, par les artistes et les per­sonnages célèbres de son temps (third edition, Paris 1888), i, p.274 (letter of Thévenin, 5 March 1819): 'J'ai appelé l'attention du ministre sur cette pénurie et j'ai remis à M. Norry, lorsqu'il vint à Rome à la fin de 1817, une note des ouvrages qui nous seraient le plus nécessaires. Elle doit donc se trouver dans les bureaux, ainsi que les plans détaillés de la villa Médicis et ses dépendan­ces, levés dans le même temps par cet architecte'. 11. No set of drawings by Subleyras of '1784' has been identified; however, in 1788 Subleyras prepa­red an 'État des réparations les plus nécessaires à faire dans le palais de l'Académie de France à Rome' for which there may be associated plans (Correspondance des directeurs de l'Académie de France à Rome avec les surintendants des bâtiments, Paris 1887-1908, xv, pp.227-230). 12. Paris, Institut national d'histoire de l'art, Ms 673: 'Plan de l'Académie Royale de Peinture Sculpture Architecture entretenue à Rome par sa Majesté, ordonné par Monsieur le comte d'Angiviller, directeur général des bâtimens du Roy sous la direction de M.r Hallé peintre et professeur de la d.te Académie. Levées en Aoust 1775 par Renard Arch.te Pens.re du Roy' (each drawing 410 × 295 mm). Proposed alterations indicated on Renard's plan of the Rez-de-chaussée (an entry from the vestibule into the Loge du Suisse; alterations to rooms facing the courtyard to provide a Lavoir, Ecurie, Magasin, etc.) are shown as accomplished on Norry's plan. A manuscript note on the title identifies the drawings in Paris as copies: 'Ces plans sont doubles à l'Académie de Rome et conformes aux lettres alphabéti­ques qui sont à chacun de ces plans pour servir à l'intelligence des changemens ou dispositions qui en seront ordonnées par Monsieur le directeur général' (link). 13. Toulier, op. cit., p.176 no. 187a, comments on the evidential value of this drawing: 'Le dessin très minutieux nous révèle des détails inédits aujourd'hui disparus: la limite du tuf sous l'escalier avec le retour du mur de la citerne, l'existence d'un passage souterrain (actuellement bouché et muré) le long des fondations depuis l'escalier sud, l'emplacement précis de la rampe d'accès le long de l'ancien jeu de paume (reconverti en galerie des creux), l'existence près de ce dépôt des moules d'une pièce de service avec un cagnard/cheminée, etc'. 14. Toulier, op. cit., p.176 no. 187c: 'Avec un soin méticuleux, Norry a relevé l'emplacement et la désigna­tion de chacune des sculptures et de chaque moulage (provenant essentiellement du Vatican, du Capitole ou des collections privées romaines). A l'exception des appartements nord réservés au direc­teur, l'étage est devenu lui-même une vaste galerie de sculptures où sont mêlés les dieux du Panthéon et les rois de France, au milieu des bustes des anciens directeurs et des statues faites par d'anciens pensionnaires. A noter la séparation avec les fragments d'architecture qui sont relégués dans la loggia du bosco. Norry pousse l'exactitude jusqu'à dessiner dans l'épaisseur des murs tous les conduits de cheminée de l'étage'. 15. Toulier, op. cit., p.114 no.107, Elévation du côté de Rome: 'En dessous du balcon, Norry a dessiné les armes de France nouvellement installées. La fenêtre du niveau 5 de la galerie a été abaissée entre 1807 et 1817'. Toulier, op. cit., p.183 nos.188a-b, Coupe en travers des Jardins: 'Dans la grande salle, la statue de Louis xiv est surmontée d'une inscription'. 16. Toulier, op. cit., p.140 no.143, Elévation du côté des jardins: 'Quelques copies ou moulages de statues ont déjà été replacées dans la loggia et dans les niches, mais toutes les niches en forme de médaillon furent-elles vraiment décorées de bustes? Le profil de la passerelle de l'étage de la galerie apparaît sur le côté sud. La fenêtre de l'étage du pignon de la galerie a été agrandie, comme celle de la façade opposée, au moment des travaux d'installation de l'académie, vers 1805-1810...'. 17. Paris, Bibliothèque de l'Institut de France, Ms 1033; see Bouteron and Tremblot, op. cit., p.229 no. 1033: 'Plans, coupes et élévations de la Ville Médicis, maintenant École Royale des Beaux-arts à Rome, relevés et dessinés fin de 1817, par Norry' (21 folios, 530 × 390 mm, 'Demi-reliure').
