Merlin, 1824. The uncommon sale catalogue of Hurtault (1765-1824), Architecte du roi, member of the Institut, and inspector general of public works, who conducted significant restorations of the Tuileries and Fontainebleau. He was especially interested in English architecture - demonstrated by the numerous British books in his collection - and designed several gardens in the English style, including one at Fontainebleau.This was one of the finest professional libraries of architecture of the early 19th century and its number of English books and specialized titles is remarkable. Many of Hurtault's books were included in Priestly and Weale's Bibliotheca Architectonica (1825).This catalogue begins with a lengthy biographical sketch of Hurtault. The library consisted of 1349 lots; the architecture portion has numerous subdivisions covering all of the major architectural disciplines of the time (including hydraulic, military, and naval). Other sections focus on histories of classical and modern architecture, monuments from across the world, the decorative arts, and the fine arts. There are also large sections devoted to engineering, hydrodynamics, perspective, acoustics, museums and galleries, and practical and applied mechanics. Hurtault also amassed extensive holdings on world history, literature, travels and voyages, as well as archaeology.Fine copy of one of the most important architectural libraries of the early 19th century. Bookplate of "Bibliophile Jacob," Paul LaCroix (1806-84), author, journalist, and librarian of the Arsenal.❧ N.B.G., Vol. 25, col. 585.

        Rosa arvensis ovata / Rosier des champs à fruits ovoïdes [Field Rose]

      Paris, 1824. Stipple engraving, printed in colours and finished by hand, engraved by Chapuy. Very good condition apart from a small bit of blue ink on the left side of the image. More than with any other painter, Redouté's flowers are alive, and always shown at the ephemeral moment of their greatest beauty.Pierre-Joseph Redouté was one of the world's great flower painters. Born into a family that had been painters for at least two generations, Redouté went to Paris in 1782 with his brother where they worked as scene painters for the Théâtre Italien. Redouté painted flowers in his spare time. The search for subjects led him to the Jardin du Roi and eventually to Gerard van Spaendonck who made him an assistant. While at the Jardin du Roi, Redouté came to know Charles-Louis L'Heritier, an amateur botanist and writer of independent means. He gave Redouté a full-time job as an illustrator, instructing him in plant anatomy. Redouté's scientific understanding of plants contributed greatly to the clarity of his depictions. But it was Redouté's work in stipple engraving and colour printing that was to be of the greatest importance. Stippling and the application of two or three colour inks to one plate were engraving innovations that Redouté brought to French printmaking, and these were brought to perfection in Les Roses from which this work comes.Redouté together with Claude-Antoine Thory, an ardent botanist and collector of roses, have together in Les Roses produced a work not only of great artistic merit, but also an invaluable scientific record as well. `Redouté and Thory knew, described and figured almost all the important roses known in their day. Included were many of the key ancestors of our present-day roses. The plates in Les Roses have artistic value, botanical and documentary value, both for the species and cultivars still surviving and for those that have disappeared' (Gisele de la Roche). The roses used as specimens for the work were taken from the collections of Thory, the Malmaison gardens, and from other collections around Paris. Many of the flowers were novelties in Redouté's time, and a number were dedicated to the memory of his friends and acquaintances, such as l'Héritier de Brutelle and Ventenat.Cf. Cleveland Collections 807; cf. Dunthorne p 232; cf. Great Flower Books(1990), p 128; cf. Nissen BBI 1599; cf. Pritzel 7455; cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 8748.

        Tableau historique et pittoresque de la route du Simplon de Genève à Milan, orné de 40 vues et d'une carte itinéraire.

      Milan, Ferdinando Artaria 1824 - in-4, IX-167-[3] pp., avec 40 très belles vues à l'aquatinte, et une grande carte dépliante "in fine", cartonnage rigide de papier crème, dos lisse, pièce de titre (reliure de l'époque). Des salissures sur le premier plat, début de fente au mors supérieur. Très rare album romantique illustré de 40 vues à l'aquatinte. Il s'agit en fait, sous un titre un peu différent, de la troisième édition de ce bel album, la première étant parue en 1811 à l'adresse de Paris chez Pierre Didot, et ne comprenant que 35 planches (Voyage pittoresque de Genève à Milan, par le Simplon). Suivit en 1819 une édition en italien à l'adresse de Milan. Les vues de toutes ces sorties ne se correspondent pas forcément, mais illustrent le même itinéraire et sont l'oeuvre de Gabriel Lory fils (1784-1846). Longchamp, 2852 et 1857-1858. Seulement deux exemplaires au CCF (BnF et Lyon). Sur la page de garde, un contemporain a écrit "J'ai rapporté ce livre d'Italie". Bon exemplaire dans son cartonnage d'origine à toutes marges et pratiquement sans rousseurs. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Alexis-Eymery, Paris 1824 - Two text volumes in octavo: [4],lxxii,364; [4],370 (misnumbered 360) p. Half titles, errata leaf + Oblong octavo atlas: 11 p. of text plus 21 plates (including lithograph portrait of Bullock, 2 folding engraved plans and 18 (6 hand-colored) lithographs by Marlet after Bullock (the author’s son), Boquet, Brisou and Lepinoy). First French edition, translated from the English of this outstanding travel account of Mexico, with the atlas of beautiful lithographic views of cities, towns, antiquities, and six hand-colored Mexican costume plates. Bullock, naturalist and antiquarian, started his career as a jeweler and goldsmith in Sheffield, then founded a private natural history collection and museum first in Liverpool and then in London. In 1822, the first year of Mexican independence, Bullock traveled to Mexico, being the first English traveler in Mexico since Thomas Gage in 1640. Bullock became a naturalized Mexican citizen, and the new Mexican government gave him a silver mine near Temascaltepec. He brought back many Mexican artifacts to England (with the permission of Lucas Alamán), including a cast of the great Aztec calendar, models of the Teotihuacán pyramids, and the original map of pre-conquest Mexico which is illustrated in the atlas volume. These Mexican artifacts became the nucleus of a growing collection on "Ancient and Modern Mexico" put up for display at Egyptian Hall, Piccadilly, London. The atlas includes handsome views of Puebla, Xalapa, San Juan de Ulloa, Veracruz, the pyramids of the sun at Teotihuacan, and the valley of Mexico showing Tacuba (now part of Mexico City). Of the two plans, one is a detailed view of Mexico City as it appeared in the 1824, commissioned by Don Diego García, with dozens of buildings labeled. Text volumes bound in contemporary deep red morocco over marbled boards, panelled spine; the Atlas volume apparently was originally bound in wrappers: in this set it has been rebound in cloth boards with the original wrappers pasted on front and back. The text volumes have scattered mild foxing throughout; the atlas is largely free of foxing, and what there is is minor. Overall condition is very good -- a nice, solid set.

Göthel p. 336.Faust, to a libretto by Joseph Carl Bernard, was first performed in Prague at the Estates Theatre on September 1, 1816. ". Faust marks an important landmark in the development of German Romantic opera. Spohr's concern to create scene complexes, rather than merely a string of individual numbers, points the way towards the continuity of his later operas. His striking use of chromatic harmony was recognized by Weber, who wrote in his introduction to the Prague première: 'this dark, Romantic spirit-world is ideally matched with the composer's inmost musical character. Owing to this fact the work as a whole is marked by great aptness of colour - grand musical and dramatic effects of charm and tenderness alternating with shatteringly powerful effects in the ensembles and choruses'." "Regarded by many contemporaries as worthy of a place beside Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven in the pantheon of the greatest composers, [Spohr] has, together with Gluck and Cherubini, been allotted a considerably lower status by posterity. Mozart's Figaro and Wagner's Tristan were both composed during Spohr's lifetime; his own work looks, Janus-like, towards both the formalism and clarity of the Classical tradition, and the structural and harmonic experimentation associated with 19th-century Romanticism."

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

      London: John Murray,, 1824. Performed in the Years 1821–22–23 in His Majesty's Ships Fury and Hecla. Quarto (275 × 205 mm). Contemporary tan diced calf, smooth spine gilt-ruled in compartments with floral centrepieces in blind, rope-twist roll gilt to covers enclosing gilt supralibros of William Lowther, 2nd Earl of Lonsdale, sprinkled edges, floral roll gilt to turn-ins, blue-green endpapers. 26 engraved or aquatint plates after George Lyon including frontispiece, all with tissue guards, 2 plans, 3 charts, 4 folding charts and 4 folding coastal profiles to rear. Bookplate of Hugh Cecil Lowther, 5th Earl of Lonsdale, to the front pastedown. Spine a little dry, small chip at headcap, short crack to head of front joint, covers variably faded, corners bumped and worn, a few plates slightly foxed (mainly in margins) and offset, plate of artefacts facing p. 548 just shaved in fore margin, but overall a very good, attractive copy. First edition, from the library of the earls of Lonsdale at Lowther Castle, with the gilt supralibros of William Lowther, 2nd Earl of Lonsdale (1787-1872) and influential Tory who succeeded Palmerston as junior lord of the Admiralty in 1809 and went on to hold a number of senior positions including postmaster general; sold in 1947 at the auction of the contents of Lowther Castle, necessitated by the extravagance of Hugh Cecil Lowther, the fifth earl (1857-1944), who spent most of his family's wealth on "a life of ostentatious pleasure" (National Portrait Gallery, online), mainly horses and other outdoor pursuits, including, pertinently, a perilous expedition to Melville Island, Arctic Canada, in 1888-9, which nearly resulted in his death and during which he collected several hundred Inuit artefacts now in the British Museum; his imposing armorial bookplate is mounted to the front pastedown. Parry was appointed to the Fury shortly after returning from his pioneering voyage of 1819-20 and "in May 1821 sailed from the Nore in company with … the Hecla, commanded by George Francis Lyon. Passing through Hudson Strait and Foxe Channel on this his longest voyage, he examined Repulse Bay, proved the accuracy of the observations made by Christopher Middleton, passed one winter at Winter Island and another at Igloolik (enlivened by the presence of the local Inuit), and traced Fury and Hecla Strait to its western end. Through the summers of 1822 and 1823 this strait was blocked by ice, and, as symptoms of scurvy were beginning to appear, Parry judged it inadvisable to attempt a third winter in the ice. The ships returned to Britain and were paid off at Deptford on 14 November 1823. Parry had meantime been advanced to the rank of post captain (8 November 1821) and was now appointed acting hydrographer (1 December 1823). A few weeks later he was entrusted with the command of a third expedition in the Hecla, accompanied by the Fury (Lieutenant Henry Hoppner), which sailed from Deptford on 8 May 1824" (ODNB). Parry's official account is considerably enlivened by Lyon's atmospheric plates, which include lively illustrations of the local Inuit.

        China: its Costume, Arts, Manufactures, &c.

      London: Howlett and Brimmer,, 1824. Edited principally from the originals in the cabinet of the late M. Bertin: with observations, explanatory, historical, and literary, by M. Breton. Translated from the French. 4 volumes bound as 2, small octavo (153 x 96 mm). Contemporary dark red straight-grain morocco, richly gilt spines, gilt and blind "Gothic arch" panelling on sides, all edges gilt, drab gray coated endpapers. 80 hand-coloured stipple-and-line engraved plates by Cardon, Freschi or Milton. 20th-century bookplate of Robert J. Hayhurst, Lancashire retail chemist and discriminating collector of 18th-century literature in contemporary bindings. A few slight abrasions to covers, joints and extremities lightly rubbed. An excellent copy, with the half-titles. First Howlett and Brimmer edition, first published in English by Stockdale (London, 1812) and originally in France as La Chine en miniature (Paris: Nepveu, 1811). The charming plates were based on "works in the collection of the French petit ministre and sinophile Henri-Léotard Jean-Baptiste Bertin … as stated on the title page, but also on the engravings in George Henry Mason's two suites, The Costume of China and The Punishments of China. In its time, Breton's China must have been a best-seller" (Getty, China on Paper). A very pretty set in contemporary straight-grain morocco.

        THE ALFRED, West of England Journal, And General Advertiser. Most Extensively Circulated in Every Part of the Kingdom.

      R. Cullum & Co. Alfred Office Theatre Street behind the Guildhall. Exeter. -1829. 5 volumes. Royal folio c.53 x 39.5 cms. 1824 - A continuous run from MARCH 30th. 1824, volume IX, no. 452 until MARCH 17th. 1829, volume XIV, no. 720. The numbering is broken in the 1825/26 volume - it comprises nos. 504 to 512 inclusive and then nos. 522 to 564 inclusive though the chronology is continuous. There are 52 issues per volume, thus 260 issues - 1040 pages [large folio sheet folded to 4 pages per issue ]. The sheet size is as above, each page with 5 columns of text and occasional woodcut. An early owner has cut out certain advertisements in each volume, totalling, for the 5 volumes, some 250 column centimetres, out of 860 column centimetres per issue. All uniformly bound in half calf and marbled boards, the covers now loose and the spines dilapidated, each front board with a red morocco title label, the contents show traces of early folding, very occasional browning but overall in excellent condition, each issue with the red FOUR PENNY excise stamp in the top right corner. *A wonderful view of life in a major provincial town nearly two hundred years ago. The paper cost 7 pence, the duty 4 pence, in today's terms, approximately £3.72, not for the ordinary worker. And judging by the binding, it was not bought by such. Robert Cullum, the publisher, was established in the first decade of the nineteenth century and also printed large amounts of ephemera, especially election items and broadside ballads. COPAC records the British Library copy only, starting in 1815 and running until 1831 when it was retitled the Exeter Independent. A note in the first issue offered here, no.452, records that Cullum had then taken proprietorship of the paper. It covered all aspects of local news, with many advertisements for local business, accounts of the local and national assizes [with verbatim extracts], balloon ascents with George Graham, with woodcut of the balloon [ the Science Museum Library has an engraving with text, showing the Graham's balloon landing in the sea between Stokehead and Yealm Point, near Plymouth, Devon. George and Margaret Graham attempted a balloon ascent from Stonehouse market in Plymouth on Monday 14 November 1825. A series of pilot balloons released prior to the ascent were all carried out to sea by a strong southerly wind, but despite the risks, the couple set off at 3pm in front of a crowd of 50,000. Sure enough, the balloon was dragged seaward by the wind and came down in the sea only 14 minutes later. After 25 minutes the couple were rescued by a Royal Marine boat and returned to shore, but the balloon was lost. Published by John Cooke of 48 Union Street, Stonehouse in December 1825 - the advertisements for their balloon ascents are found in no. 472, August 17th. 1824 et seq.; in 1850, Mrs Graham became the first woman to make a balloon ascent at night, which she did from Vauxhall Gardens. A contemporary poster, now in the museum of London, advertised the occasion. Mrs Graham and her husband were perhaps the most famous English balloonists in the 19th century, making ascents on many public occasions such as the coronation of Queen Victoria (1838) and during the Great Exhibition of 1851. ], medicines and hospitals, the Royal Menagerie of Earl James and Sons, no.531, August 2nd. 1825 et seq. with woodcut, and that of Thomas Atkins, cullings of national and international news from some of the national newspapers such as the Times and the London Gazette, poetry, humour and little-known facts, ship intelligence, coach times, the Edinburgh Steam Carriage (no. 667, March 11th. 1828, with woodcut) etc, etc., a lovely mix of reportage and hundreds of hours of reading !

        An address from the liverpool society for the Abolition of Slavery, on the safest and most efficacious means of promoting the gradual improvement of the negro slaves in the British West India Islands, preparatory to their becoming free labourers, and on the expected consequences of such change

      Liverpool: [J. & G. Smith], [1824]. 18pp. Stitched, as issued. Title laid-down due to loss at head and foot and small hole to centre, loss of publisher's name and date to imprint, very small hole to final leaf, just touching text but without loss of sense, light spots of dust-soiling. A polemic against the slave trade in British West-India issued by The Liverpool Society for Promoting the Abolition of Slavery under the direction of society president William Roscoe (1753-1831). In 1807 royal assent had been provided for a parliamentary bill abolishing the British slave trade. This however did not include the ownership of slaves in the West-Indies, ultimately the practice would not be discontinued there until 1838. It was therefore deemed necessary by men such as Roscoe that the public be educated as to 'the nature and effects of Negro Slavery'. The address calls for the entire abolition of the trade in the British colonies, with freedom granted to all slaves, and the right for those released from servitude to possess property. The society are clearly aware of an inevitable backlash from the mercantile class of Liverpool who profited from the trade; 'Suggestions have been thrown out by advocates for Slavery, that if the Slaves in the British Colonies were liberated, they would be too indolent to labour...from all that the Society can collect...the precise reverse would be the fact. If, in the course of time, we could have a large population of free labourers on the fertile soils of Demerara, how could the planters of the Brazils and Cuba stand the competition?' . First edition. 8vo.

        Vue de la grotte de Matromania

      - (Naples) 1824, 16x24cm, une feuille sous marie-louise. - Acquerello originale Florian Grospietsch (firmato F. Grospietsch, 1824), pittore prussiano e incisore nato in Slesia, nato nel 1789 e morto nel 1841. Artista autodidatta, Grospietsch è famosa per il suo paesaggio e andò in Italia nel 1820 a dipingere dalla natura. Corre acquerelli, incisioni e dipinti di paesaggi napoletani, tra cui questa visione del golfo di Napoli da una grotta, dove si trova un carattere indietro. Questa alta qualità acquerello colori vivaci è stato aggiunto a un amicorum album tra molti paesaggi del Golfo di Napoli, molto apprezzato dall'aristocrazia europea in epoca post-napoleonica. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Aquarelle originale de Florian Grospietsch (signée F. Grospietsch, 1824), peintre et aquafortiste prussien originaire de Silésie, né en 1789 et mort en 1830. Artiste autodidacte, Grospietsch est célèbre pour ses paysages et se rend en en Italie en 1820 pour en peindre d'après nature. Il y exécute des "Vues d'Italie" (Italienischen Ansichten) : aquarelles, eaux-fortes et toiles de paysages napolitains, dont cette rare vue de la grotte de Matromania, une étrange cavité calcaire au sud-est de Capri, qui servit jadis de lieu de culte au dieu indo-persan Mithra mais aussi à la déesse des Phrygiens Cybèle. Ce lieu chargé de mystère et de romantisme fut fouillé au début du XIXe siècle, et attira voyageurs et peintres. Certains des paysages italiens de Grospietsch furent exposés à l'académie des beaux-arts de Berlin en 1822. Vue atypique aux couleurs éclatantes, où l'artiste s'est sans doute représenté à travers le voyageur solitaire assis au milieu de la grotte, dans un double effet de mise en abyme.

        Die Waffenbahre (pp.189-224, 2 gefalt. Taf.).

      Journ. Chir. Augenh., 6/2 - Hrsg. v. Graefe & Walther. - Berlin, im Verlag von G. Reimer, 1824, 8, pp.197-378, 2 gefalt. Kupferstichtafeln, orig. Broschur in feinem Pappband im Stil d.Zt. Erstdruck! Graefe's Waffenbahre, ist eine aus Infanterie Gewehren, aus dem Lederzeuge und den Mänteln der Soldaten zusammengesetzte, zum Fortschaffen Schwerverwundeter vom Schlachtfelde bestimmte Tragbahre. ...Carl Ferdinand von Graefc hatte in dem Befreiungs-kriege 1813 - 1815, an dem er als dirigirendcr Divisions- Generalchirurgus Theil genommen, die Erfahrung gemacht, dals die bisherigen Transportmittel für Schwerverwundete aus der Schlachtlinie noch immer unzureichend wären und be-mühte sich dieselben durch andere zu ersetzen, welche ihrem Zwecke besser entsprächen, was ihm auch vollkommen ge-lang. Er kam nämlich auf den Gedanken, daß man eine An-zahl von Soldaten im Voraus zum Fortschaffen der Blessierten bestimmen und ausrüsten könne, welche nicht etwa Abtei-lungen bilden, sondern unter die Combattanten verteilt wer-den sollten, deren Schießgewehre so eingerichtet sind, daß sie die Tragstangen bilden, welche in Gurte gesteckt, die sich an den Mänteln vorfinden, mit denselben eine Tragbahre ab-geben, die allen Erfordernissen entspricht. Zur Erleichterung des Tragens dieser Bahre sind an dem Lederzeuge der Sol-daten Carabinerhaken angebracht, welche teils an das Ge-wehrbajonett, teils an Tücher befestigt werden, die sich an den Kolben der Flinten befinden. Eine genaue Beschreibung der so leicht zusammenzusetzenden Waffenbahre wovon 3 bis 4 auf 100 Mann kommen, hat uns v. Graefe selbst gelie-fert auch finden wir eine bildliche Darstellung derselben in dessen und Walther' Journ. Bd. 6. pag. 189. Taf. II.und Il.Durch diese Einrichtung wird den Mängeln und Nachtheilen der frühem derartigen Anstalten auf eine zweckmäßige und leicht ausführbare Weise abgeholfen es wird nicht nöthig seyn dem Heere Combattanten zu entziehen, den Troß der Armee zu vermehren, man kann nicht in Verlegenheit gerathen, Schwerblessirte liegen lassen zu müssen, da es durch Graefe's Waffenbahre möglich ist, an jeder Stelle des Gefech-tes Tragbahren haben zu können ferner verursacht diese Ein-richtung nicht den großen Kostenaufwand wie die Brancardiercompagnieen, und nach einer siegreich beendigten Schlacht kann man durch Waffenbahrenträger in Massen schnell die Blessirten vom Schlachtfelde nach den Sammelplätzen bringen, etc."Encyclopädisches Wörterbuch der medicinischen Wissenschaften.Hrsg. v. C,F. Gräfe, Chr. W. v. Hufeland, et al., Bd. 15, pp.114-115"Gelänge es mir", schliesst Graefe den einleitenden ersten Theil, "der ich mehrmals Zeuge war, wie die Qualen der Verwundeten durch Mangel an Tragegeräthen gesteigert, wie so viele Leben auf diese Weise geopfert wurden, gelänge es mir, durch den gemachten Vorschlag für sichere Rettung schwer Verwundeter im künftigen Kriege mit beizutragen, so wäre einer meiner heissesten Wünsche erfüllt.""Erwägt man, schliesst Graefe seine Schrift, welche Vortheile durch einen solchen, jegliche Erschütterung entfernenden Transport gewonnen werden, so ist es offenbar, dass die Einführung der Waffenbahre den Verwundeten zur grössten Wohlthat und dem Staate, durch Erhaltung ausgezeichneter Krieger, zum erheblichen Nutzen gereichen dürfte."siehe - Kriegschirurgen und Feldärzte der ersten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts (1795-1848). Von Dr. Bock, und Dr. Hasenknopf. Belin 1901
