        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.

      (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]

        The Devil's Elixir

      London: William Blackwood & T. Cadell. London, William Blackwood & T. Cadell, 1824. First Edition. First Impression. Two volumes bound as one. Uncommon. One of the author's earliest works, first published in German in 1815. Hoffmann was one of the earliest writers in the fantastic tradition and a popular source. Highly influential in the 19th century but losing a little influence in the 20th century, though his legacy remains. A wonderful author, and much more accessible than many of his peers. An important work, influenced heavily by Lewis' Monk. Owner's stamp to the front pastedown, with his initials on the binding too. Binding in good shape with a little rubbing and wear. A tidy copy in a nice, later binding. [5678, Hyraxia Books]. . Near Fine. Hardback. 1st Edition. 1824.

        Composition de la tête osseuse de l'homme et des animaux. [Suivi de] Sur l'adgustal, l'un des os de la voûte palatine

      (Paris, Annales des sciences naturelles), 1824. (1824), (1824), in-8, pagination multiple, une planche et un tableau, les deux dépliants reproduits en lithographie, percaline prune à la bradel, dos lisse, titre doré en long, Édition originale, sous forme d'extraits, de ce rare résumé des travaux de Saint-Hilaire sur le crâne ; ils proviennent du tome III des Annales des sciences naturelles (1824). La « Composition de la tête osseuse de l'homme et des animaux » fera l'objet d'un tiré à part destiné à la vente en librairie (Tastu). Geoffroy-Saint-Hilaire y étudie la « composition de la tête osseuse, montre le crâne formé de sept vertèbres, fait l'historique des travaux publiés sur le même sujet, et donne la concordance de sa nomenclature et de ses déterminations avec celles de Cuvier ». (« Vie, travaux et doctrine scientifique d'Étienne Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire » par son fils Isidore, p. 447). L'exposé s'accompagne d'un tableau synoptique et d'une planche détaillant la composition de la tête osseuse du crocodile, d'après un crâne retiré d'une momie trouvée par Geoffroy-Saint-Hilaire dans les catacombes de Thèbes en Égypte ; c'est à partir de cette découverte que l'auteur a décrit une nouvelle et petite espèce vivant dans le Nil, le crocodylus suchus (planches n° 9 et 16 de l'Atlas). L'exposé sur l'adgustal, pages 491 à 506 ; peut figurer comme un "appendice" à l'article précédent. En 1824, Geoffroy-Saint-Hilaire (1772-1844) a derrière lui une carrière déjà importante ; il a acquis la célébrité en 1818 avec la parution de la « Philosophie anatomique » et a énoncé de nombreux principes majeurs, avant de s'intéresser aux pièces paléontologiques et à la description des fossiles. À partir de 1825, il s'engage, contre son confrère et ami Cuvier dans la controverse dite « des crocodiles de Caen » qui le conduira à se prononcer en faveur des thèses transformistes. Exemplaire provenant de la bibliothèque de l'ethnologue et anthropologue Ernest-Théodore Hamy (1842-1908), avec sa jolie étiquette ex-libris à l'orang-outan, reproduction de la belle gravure de l'Homo sylvestris parue dans les Observationum medicarum de Nicolas Tulp en 1641.

        Statistique des Provinces de Savone, d'Oneille, d'Acqui, et de partie de la Province de Mondovi. Paris, Impr. de Jules Didot Ainé, 1824

      Didot Ainé J, 1824. 2 vol. in-4, pp. (4), XII, 359; (4), 512, 13; leg. dell'epoca in cart. muto, protetti da camicia m. marocch e ang. con tit. oro su duplice tass. bicolore ed astuccio cart. Vasto ed accuratissimo studio storico-geografico ed economico-statistico sulla zona denominata un tempo ''Dipartimento di Montenotte'' e comprendente parte delle attuali provincie di Cuneo, Alessandria, Imperia, Savona e Genova. E' corredato di numerose tabelle statistiche a stampa ripieg. f.t. ed illustrato da 2 grandi carte geo-topogr. (una dell'ampia zona citata, l'altra del Golfo di La Spezia) e 44 finissime litografie raffiguranti vedute dei principali paesi e città (tra quelle concernenti il Piemonte: Acqui, Ceva, Dogliani, Garessio, Incisa, Millesimo, Nizza Monferrato, Ormea, Saliceto, S. Stefano Belbo; tra quelle della Liguria: Alassio, Albenga, Albisola (2), Arenzano, Cairo, Carcare, Dego, Diano Marina, Finale Marina, Finalborgo, Noli, Oneglia, Pieve, Porto Maurizio, Sassello, Savona (2), Varazze. L'ultima parte dell'opera è dedicata ad una ''Mémoire sur le Golfe de La Spezzia'' (pp. 478-508); la commissione francese aveva infatti avuto anche l'incarico di valutare le spese da farsi per l'installazione di una base militare nel golfo. Comprende, oltre alla carta menzionata, una veduta del golfo di Spezia (ripiegata), una di Portovenere ed una delle insenature di Varignano e delle Grazie. L'autore (Gilbert-Joseph-Gaspard, comte de Chabrol de Volvic, 1773-1843) fu amministratore del Dipartimento di Montenotte e scelto da Napoleone a far parte della commissione scientifica che lo seguì nella spedizione d'Egitto. Opera straordinaria, molto importante e ricercata, assai rara a trovarsi completa di tutte le tavole ed in ottimo stato come il presente esemplare. Di eccezionale importanza è la parte iconografica, che offre, in molti casi l'unica veduta ottocentesca di località minori.

The quantity, quality, and long-term value of his scholarly work led to his election to the National Academy of Sciences in 1976. Virtually all of his major publications have been reprinted and/or translated.
