        LESSONS FOR CHILDREN. From Two to Three years Old. [From Three to Four years Old.] In Two Parts.

      Two parts bound as one, as with its own frontispiece and title-page. 95; 143 pages. Original quarter red roan. First published in 1778 in London. This printing is rare, WorldCat recording one copy only in Trinity College, Dublin. However, that copy differs in having continuous pagination throughout the two volumes. Anna Laetitia Barbauld [1743 -1825) was a prominent English poet, essayist, literary critic, editor, and children's author.But her career ended abruptly in 1812 with the publication of Eighteen Hundred and Eleven, a work which criticized Britain's participation in the Napoleonic Wars. The savagery of the reviews shocked Barbauld, and she published nothing else during her lifetime. Though her reputation has been in some part restored, today she is best remembered as a children's writer and educationalist.

Rara edizione originale di uno dei testi fondamentali dell'Indipendenza Americana. Nato a Potenza, nel Regno di Napoli, Vicente (Vincenzo) Filisola si è unito all'esercito spagnolo in giovane età e fù inviato in Messico nel 1811. A quel tempo gli spagnoli cercavano di sottomettere il movimento di indipendenza del Messico. Arrivato lì, però, Filisola decise di abbracciare la causa degli insorti e si mise a combattere per l'indipendenza del Messico. Fu il primo patriota ad entrare nel capitale liberata del Messico il 24 settembre 1821. Nel 1823 fù inviato dal presidente Agustín de Iturbide (1783-1824) in Honduras e Guatemala in un momento in cui Iturbide voleva annettere queste due regioni nell'impero messicano. L'annessione causò una rivolta in El Salvador, guidato dal leader Guatemalteco José Francisco Barrundia (1787-1854), che fu poi eletto presidente delle Province Unite dell'America Centrale. Dopo l'abdicazione di Iturbide, nel 1823, Filisola convocò un Congresso dell'America Centrale che il 1 ° luglio 1823 decretò la nascita di una federazione di cinque stati, che comprendeva il Messico, Guatemala, Honduras. Più tardi Filisola diventò un amico e confidente del generale Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna e nel 1833 fu nominato generale di divisione. Nel 1836 prese parte alla rivoluzione texana, di cui alcuni anni dopo pubblicò un lungo libro di memorie (Memorias para la Historia de la Guerra de Tejas, Messico, 1849). Durante la guerra messicano-americana, nel 1848, fù nominato dal presidente messicano comandante di una delle tre divisioni dell'esercito messicano. Filisola morì nel 1850, poche settimane dopo la sua nomina a presidente del Tribunale Supremo guerra. A. Ávila, J. Dym & E.

        Spectacular document signed by Red Jacket and 10 other Seneca chiefs

      New York, June 15, 1824. 7.875” x 9.875”. "Single page annuity receipt inscribed in elegant script on watermarked cream paper, featuring signature marks of eleven chiefs of the Seneca Nation including that of Red Jacket (c. 1750-1830), which appears in the left column four entries from the top. The marks of other Seneca chiefs include Young King (1760-1835), Captain Pollard, Black Snake (1760-1859), Jim Robinson, Charles O’Bail, Little Beard (d. 1806), Peter King, Jimmy Hudson, Canada, and Young Chief Welincor. Three witnesses signed the document, including E.C. Hickson, Charles Norton, and former Indian captive and interpreter Horatio Jones. In extremely fine condition, with J. & L. watermark at bottom, measuring 7.875” x 9.875”. Inscribed verso is the following docket, “Seneca Nation, Recpt. $500, June 1824, Duplicate”.This intriguing receipt, signed by almost a dozen powerful local chieftains of the Seneca Nation, gives us some insight into the administrative dynamics of early 19th C. American Indian policy. During the 1820s, many Indian tribes lived according to terms dictated by state and federal government. Oftentimes this included ceding their lands in exchange for annuities. This document cites as a precedent the September 13, 1815 treaty signed by then Governor Daniel D. Tompkins (1774-1825) in Buffalo. (Tompkins was a multiple term New York state governor as well as Vice President during the Monroe administration.) The 1815 treaty concerned the sale of several islands in the Niagara River from the Seneca to the state of New York for an outright purchase price of $1000 and a perpetual annuity of $500. Our letter acknowledges receipt of one such annuity granted in 1824. The 1815 treaty was controversial because it was only signed by some Senecas, among whom included two of our signees, Red Jacket and Colonel Pollard.During the onset of the Revolutionary War, the Seneca along with the five other nations in the Iroquois Confederacy initially resisted choosing sides in the colonial conflict. Eventually, the confederacy divided with only the Tuscarora and the Oneida contributing in significant ways to the American cause. The Seneca allied with the British, participating in many devastating raids in the Delaware and Susquehanna Valley. The United States confiscated many Seneca lands after 1783 in retaliation. Red Jacket served as a representative of the Seneca Nation during the early years of the American Republic. His Seneca name Sagoyewatha or “Keeper Awake” testified to his ability to interest listeners. Red Jacket was one of approximately fifty signees of the 1794 Treaty of Canandaigua, which restored friendly relations between the United States and the former members of the Iroquois Confederacy, and reaffirmed previous land boundaries. His name and mark appear frequently in important historical documents like this one. Ex: Parke-Bernet Galleries, New York Collection, c. Norton Owen, May 15, 1970."

II chipped with a little loss, but the bindings, while fragile, are firm. According to the preface, each of the volumes was separately published, and consequently this may account for the paucity of complete copies.

        De l'influence des agens physiques sur la vie.

      Paris, Crochard, 1824. ____ Première édition. C'est avec cette oeuvre qu'Edwards apparaît comme un précurseur de l'écologie. Il y rapporte ces expériences sur l'influence de l'air, de l'eau, de la lumière, de la chaleur et de l'électricité sur les organismes vivants. "Edwards devoted much time to the study of the influence of environmental factors on the "animal economy". His main idea was that vital processes depend on external physical and chemical forces but are not entirely controlled by them. Life is different from heat, light, or electricity, forces which, however, contribute to the production of vital phenomena. (...) Edward's book is a classic pioneer work on animal ecology." DSB, 5, 285. Coiffe supérieure rognée. Garrison-Morton 145.46, 598.1, 1991. *****. In-8. [200 x 123 mm] Collation : XVI, 654, (4) pp., 1 planche hors-texte. Demi-basane brune, dos orné.

Illustrée par 1 tableau et 10 planches dépliantes hors-texte. Le faux-titre porte : "Essai d'un cours élémentaire et général des sciences physiques. Minéralogie." "Mineralogical investigations, particulary experiments with carbonates and other salts, revealed to Beudant a principle of the combination of mineral substance that he expressed in Beudant's law. Essentially, he found that some compounds dissolved in the same solution would precipitate together, forming a crystal whose properties they determined in common. The interfacial angles of this new crystal would have a value intermediate between the angles of the original compounds, proportional to the quantity of each." DSB 2, 106.

        Séances Nautiques, ou exposé des Diverses Manoeuvres du Vaisseau...

      Paris: Bachelier, 1824. Octavo, with a folding plate; a fine copy, uncut and unpressed, in the original pink mottled wrappers with printed paper label. A fine association copy, affectionately inscribed by the author to Henri de Freycinet. Henri de Freycinet, older brother of Louis, served as lieutenant on board the Géographe during the Baudin expedition to Australia of 1800-1804. He was responsible for much of the mapping of the Australian coastline, and on his return was keenly involved in promoting the atlas of the voyage in France. Henri had joined the navy in 1794 and went on to a long and distinguished career, including a great deal of action against the British. He lost his right arm in battle in 1806, and was twice imprisoned. He attained the rank of rear admiral in 1828 and also served as governor of Ile Bourbon (Réunion).Pierre-Marie-Joseph de Bonnefoux (1782-1855), French naval captain and veteran of the Napoleonic era, was captured by the British in 1806 and detained for an extended time, providing him with the opportunity to observe innovations of the Royal Navy such as the flag telegraph system. With the Restoration, Bonnefoux was made a Knight of St. Louis and member of the Legion d'Honneur. Appointed to the Royal marine college at Angoulême, he prepared several standard works of naval instruction, of which Séances Nautiques is an example. Later in life he wrote a life of Christopher Columbus. At one time he was under the command of Henri de Freycinet, as he notes in his foreword where he speaks of having prepared this work for the naval students at Rochefort, then under Freycinet's direction. On the blank page opposite this is Bonnefoux's warm personal inscription to 'Mr. Henri de Freycinet, Capne. De Vaisseau &c. &c. &c. Hommage d'attachement, de reconnaissance, de Respect, De la part de l'auteur'. Faded spine.

        An exposé of the conduct of the Victualling Board to the Honorable Basil Cochrane, as contractor and agent victualler to His Majesty's ships on the East India station. To which are annexed, proofs of the zeal and exertions of Mr. Cochrane for the public service.

      London: printed by J. Davy. 1824. 8vo., (7) + vi = vii + (1) + 120pp., including the half-title, the text folowed by 5 large folding tables of contract accounts, contingent accounts, abstracts, and disbursements, original boards with printed label (slightly defective) on upper cover, printed spine label, head of spine chipped, upper joint splitting, but a fine, crisp, presentation copy inscribed in ink by Cochrane 'Robert Wm. Newman Esq. M.P.> (1776-1848), then the M.P. for Exeter. First and only edition and seemingly of great rarity (a copy in the BL but not found elsewhere by COPAC or OCLC). Basil Cochrane (1753-1826) was a Scottish civil servant, businessman, inventor, and wealthy nabob of early 19th century England. The sixth son of Scottish nobleman and politician Thomas Cochrane, 8th Earl of Dundonald, Basil Cochrane at the age of sixteen (in 1769) was given a place with the East India Company in Madras. In 1792 he took over supply contracts for the British navy in India from his brother John, who had held them since 1790. The demand for provisions was so great that Basil had flour mills and bakeries built at Calcutta and Madras to fulfil his contracts. He returned to England in 1806 having accumulated an enormous fortune (he had held contracts over the years totalling £1,418,236) but spent the next 13 years disputing his accounts with the Victualling Board. After Cochrane's accounts were finally settled in 1819, he published several pamphlets criticizing the Victualling Board's conduct towards him and calling for reforms in the process.

        Lettera autografa firmata indirizzata a ''Monsieur''. Senza luogo nè data, fine XIX secolo.

      1824. 6 pagine in-8, cucite entro astuccio in percallina rossa con dorso in pelle. Nella missiva autografa firmata ''A. Dumas'' il celebre letterato e drammaturgo francese scrive ad anonimo corrispondente ringraziandolo per una dedica ricevuta e auspicando un miglioramento della condizione femminile in Italia, sulla linea di quello già avvenuto in Europa. ''Monsieur, j'accepte avec le plus grand plaisir la dédicace que vous me faites l'honneur de m'envoyer''. Alexandre Dumas (1824-1895), figlio di Alexandre Dumas, come il padre, è stato un autore di grande successo ed è noto soprattutto per il suo romanzo ''La signora delle camelie'' a cui si ispira ''La Traviata'' di Giuseppe Verdi, e per sue opere teatrali ''Le Fils naturel'' e ''Un Père prodigue''. Questa missiva risulta particolarmente interessante poiché documento storico tangibile dell'attività di Dumas come portavoce delle cause particolari e degli avvenimenti incresciosi della società, soprattutto legati alla condizione femminile e dell'infanzia. Buon esemplare eccetto per strappo senza perdita di testo al primo foglio.

        (NOTICE SUR LA LITHOGRAPHIE, SUIVIE D'UN) ESSAI SUR LA RELIURE ET LE BLANCHIMENT DES LIVRES ET GRAVURES.

      (Chatillon-sur-Seine): n.p. 1824. 8vo. later cloth. pp.68-228. Mairet's Essai sur la Reliure was the major portion of Notice sur la Lithographie. The lithographic portion occupied the first 67 pages and had 5 plates (lacking in this copy). The essay on bookbinding is very early for the subject (SK-7284; Pollard 52). It was added to this second edition of the lithography title and was first printed here. Our copy is excised from this book. A handwritten note states that a previous owner bought it from L.W. Bondy, a London bookseller. Bigmore & Wyman considered the book rare when they printed their bibliography of printing. According to Pollard "Mairet was born in 1786; he became a binder and paper dealer in Dijon until 1821 when he set up as a paper manufacturere in Fontenoy near Montbard..."

        Trarbach mit der Ruine Gräfenburg an der Mosel.

      - Lithographie von A. Borum nach D. Quaglio bei J. Lacroix, um 1824, koloriert. Ca. 42 x 49 cm. Papier etwas gebräunt, vor allem im Randbereich. Oberer Rand etwas knittrig. Winzige Beschädigung in der untersten Titelzeile. Nicht bei Winkler, Frühzeit der deutschen Lithographie. Sehr dekorative und detailreiche Ansicht von Trarbach nach einer Vorlage Quaglio aus dem Jahre 1823. Beherrscht wird der Ort durch die evangelische Pfarrkirche (ehem. St. Nikolaus), deren gotische Maßwerkfenster und das Portal bis in die Einzelheiten genau dargestellt sind. Daneben die ehemalige Lateinschule mit dem Ausblick auf die Grevenburg. Die Häuser, teilweise aus Fachwerk, säumen die Straße, auf der Fußgänger und eine kleine Ziegenherde dargestellt sind. Links ein dreigeschossiges Fachwerkhaus mit einem herausragenden, schmiedeeisernen Davidstern. In der Bildmitte ein großes Haus mit Fachwerk, mehreren Erkern und einer Marienmalerei an der Fassade. Rechts im Vordergrund ist ein kleiner Bach (Kautenbach?) dargestellt, über den zwei Stege führen. Im Hintergrund erhebt sich ein Felsen, auf dem sich die Ruine der Gräfenburg befindet. Unterhalb der Darstellung links der Vermerk "Gemalt v. Dominicus Quaglio.", in der Mitte "Gedr. v. Jos. Lacroix." und rechts "Auf Stein gez. v. Andreas Borum." Frühe Lithographie dieser Szene nach Quaglio, noch ohne die später hinzugefügte Reiterfigur im Vordergrund. Vermutlich handelt es sich bei dem vorliegenden Blatt um die erste Lithographie nach der Zeichnung von Quaglio. Winkler, Frühzeit der deutschen Lithographie, kennt nur die Ausgabe bei Velten in Carlsruhe (640,68). Joseph Lacroix, lithographischer Zeichner und Drucker, arbeitete 1822-24 in München (Winkler 456). Dieser Druck bei Lacroix ist Winkler unbekannt geblieben und in der Literatur bisher nicht beschrieben.

        Vingt-Quatre Heures d'une Femme Sensible, ou Une Grande Leçon

      Paris Arthus Bertrand 1824 - Octavo. Contemporary quarter black skiver, blue boards, spine gilt in compartments. Engraved frontispiece. 1 leaf of publisher's ads at rear. Spine rolled, binding rubbed, spotting and toning of contents, primarily in the margins. A very good copy. First edition, first impression. Author Constance de Salm (1767-1845) was a highly regarded French writer and moral philosopher, and an important member of a circle of leading intellectuals and scientists. Though forgotten for much of the 19th and 20th centuries, she is now the subject of renewed academic interest, providing a window onto the lives and intellectual networks of women in Revolutionary and Napoleonic France. De Salm spent most of her life promoting the equality of women, and her most important work, the poem Épître aux femmes (1797), was a direct attack on the language and social structures that uphold patriarchy, as well as an exhortation to women to liberate themselves. During her career "she used a variety of genres to address issues of importance to women, such as equal access to educational opportunities and to family courts, recognition of intellectual achievement, the infantilization of women and the denigration of their abilities, the cost to women's health of reproduction, and adequately renumerated work for poor, widowed, and single women. In many ways she can be usefully compared to Mary Wollstonecraft." (Hine, Constance de Salm, p. 4). De Salm's friendships with scientists were an important part of her intellectual life. She was close to the astronomer Joseph-Jérome Lalande, who left her his unpublished manuscripts and asked her to write his eulogy. "Not only did she know Lalande well enough to have him entrust her with securing his legacy, but she was acquainted with renowned scientists like the natural philosopher Auguste de Candolle, the botany professor at the Jardin du Roi, Antoine de Jussieu, the naturalist Alexander von Humboldt. all of whom were among her circle of friends and frequented her salon. Her involvement can be used to illustrate the shift from earlier philosophical debates among scientists to the increasing interest on the part of women in scientific culture in the latter part of the eighteenth and the early part of the nineteenth centuries " (Hine pp. 2-3). The present text, Twenty-Four Hours in the Life of a Sensitive Woman, is an epistolary novel exploring the mindset of a woman whose lover may have abandoned her for another. It was praised by her friend, the author Stendhal and is now rare in the first edition. We can locate only one institutional copy, at the British Library. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Recueil de discours de l'homme politique français, député de l'Eure, Louis Pierre Édouard Bignon, qui traversa l'Empire, le Consulat, la Restauration et la monarchie de Juillet

      1824 - In-8° relié plein veau de l'époque, pièce de titre, une table manuscrite à la fin recense tous les discours prononcés de 1818 à 1824. Le baron Louis Pierre Édouard Bignon, né à La Mailleraye-sur-Seine le 3 janvier 1771 et mort à Paris le 6 janvier 1841, est un diplomate, homme politique et historien français. Louis Pierre Édouard Bignon est le fils d’un capitaine de navire. Grâce à la protection de la marquise de Hagu, il entre au collège de Lisieux à Paris, où il fait de bonnes études. Engagé volontaire en 1792, il fut remarqué par le général Huer, qui le prit pour secrétaire. Une requête en vers adressée au Directoire, dans laquelle Bignon, sollicitant une place de secrétaire d’ambassade, donne son avis sur les qualités et les devoirs d’un bon diplomate, attire l’attention du ministre des Relations extérieures, Talleyrand ; en 1797, il est nommé secrétaire de légation près la Confédération helvétique. Le 2 novembre 1798, il est muté avec la même fonction auprès de la République cisalpine. Sous le Consulat, il est ensuite envoyé à Berlin (1799), avant d’y être nommé chargé d’affaires (1804). Il est ensuite accrédité à Cassel comme ministre plénipotentiaire près de l'électeur de Hesse (1804-1806). C'est là qu'est élaborée l’idée d’une confédération des princes allemands intermédiaires, protégée conjointement par la France et par la Russie ; cette idée se concrétise dans la Confédération du Rhin mais seulement avec le protectorat français. L’électeur de Hesse ayant refusé de signer une convention de neutralité avant la bataille d'Iéna, l’électorat est supprimé après la défaite de la Prusse. Nommé commissaire impérial auprès des autorités prussiennes, chargé de l’administration générale des domaines et des finances des provinces conquises, Bignon conserve ces fonctions jusqu’en 1808, tant que l’armée française occupe la Prusse. En 1809, il est ministre plénipotentiaire auprès du grand-duc de Bade à Karlsruhe ; un décret impérial le nomme administrateur général de l’Autriche. De Vienne, il est envoyé à Varsovie (1810), où il est chargé d'affaires pendant trois ans et sert les vues du gouvernement impérial sur le duché de Varsovie. Il est membre du gouvernement de Lithuanie[réf. nécessaire] avec Alexandre Antoine Sapieha, Dirk van Hogendorp. Il reçut en récompense le titre de baron de l'Empire. Après la bataille de Leipzig (16-19 octobre 1813), Bignon était à Dresde auprès du roi de Saxe et duc de Varsovie. Il s’y trouva aussi pendant le siège. Gouvion-Saint-Cyr, qui commandait, capitula, mais, la capitulation ayant été violée, Bignon fut un moment prisonnier d’un aide de camp du prince de Schwarzenberg, jusqu’à ce que dernier, accueillant la réclamation du diplomate, le fît reconduire aux avant-postes français à Strasbourg. Il fut de retour à Paris le 7 décembre 1813 et ce fut lui qui annonça à Napoléon Ier la défection de Murat. Après les événements de 1814, Bignon disparut un moment de la scène politique. Il consacra ses loisirs à un Exposé comparatif de l’état financier, militaire, politique et moral de la France et des principales puissances de l’Europe. Il revint aux affaires sous les Cent-Jours, puisque Napoléon Ier le nomma sous-secrétaire d’État au ministère des Affaires étrangères, conjointement avec le comte de Mosloy. Le 12 mai 1815, le département de la Seine-Inférieure l’élut membre de la Chambre des représentants. Chargé du portefeuille des Affaires étrangères, il dut signer la convention du 3 juillet 1815 qui, à la suite de la défaite de Waterloo, reléguait l’armée française au-delà de la Loire et ouvrait Paris à l’invasion. Lorsque le drapeau blanc flotta sur les Tuileries, Bignon remit son portefeuille aux mains de Talleyrand et se retira momentanément de la politique active. Le 20 septembre 1817, il fut élu à la Chambre des députés par le département de l'Eure. Il fut un des plus constants adversaires de la Restauration. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
