        Die wichtigsten neuern Land- und Seereisen. Für die Jugend und andere Leser bearbeitet. 16 in 15 Bänden.

      - Leipzig, Fleischer, 1824-31. 8vo. Mit zus. 33 teils gefalteten Kupfertafeln u. 17 (von 18) gefalteten Kupferkarten. 10 Halbleder d. Zeit in 5 Einband-Varianten, 1 Pappband d. Zeit u. 4 Or.-Broschuren (6 Bände beschabt u. bestoßen, die Broschuren mit Stempel auf Vorderdeckel u. kleinen Läsuren). Mischexemplar: Band 5, 6 und 12-16 in erster Ausgabe (auf besserem Papier), Band 1-4 und 7-11 in der neuen, wohlfeilen Ausgabe. - Der Pädagoge Wilhelm Harnisch hat sich bei der Gestaltung der Reihe über wichtige Forschungsreisen seit 1780 zwar auf den "seeligen Campe" berufen, fand aber, dieser habe den jungen Lesern zu sehr "vorgedacht". Harnisch wollte jedoch das eigenständige Denken fördern. Auch versuchte er sich so treu wie möglich an die Worte der Reisenden zu halten, um nicht "dem schönen Ausdrucke (die) Wahrheit aufzuopfern". Und um dem Leser ein "Rundgemälde (Panorama)" der Welt (das heißt der außereuropäischen Erdteile) zu liefern, hat Harnisch sein "Erdgemälde" nicht nur mit Kapiteln über das Natur- und Völkerleben, sondern auch mit Berichten über Sitten, Glauben, Wissenschaften und Künste versehen. Die Karten entwarf der Autor selbst. - Unter den geschilderten Reisen sind u.a. Humboldts Südamerika-Reise, die Brasilien-Reise des Prinzen Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied, die Weltreisen von Krusenstern und Langsdorf, Südseereisen von Bligh, Oxley und Mariner, Forschungsreisen in Asien durch Staunton, Ellis, Barrow, Symes, Woodard, Fahrten in Afrika von Minutoli, Ali Bei, Denham und Clapperton, Mungo Park, Cochelet; auch der Schiffbruch der "Medusa" wird behandelt. - Mit Registern der bereisten Weltteile und der Reisenden. - Auf den Kupfertafeln sind u.a. die Schwefelberge von Krisuvik, die Niagarafälle, eine südamerikanische Lederbrücke, der Tschimborasso, der Vulkan von Kirauea, ein Nordgrönländer, Indianer, Japaner, Koreaner, ein Kamelartillerist, Berber von der Insel Elephantine, ein Buschmann und ein tätowierter Nukahiwer zu sehen. - Ohne die Karte "Der nördliche Teil von Südamerika" in Band 15. - Vgl. Engelmann 107; Wegehaupt 877. - Die meisten Bände gering, einige stärker stockfleckig. Band 14 mehrfach gestempelt, Karte feuchtfleckig u. mit größeren Einrissen. Karte in Band 15 fehlt, die meisten Bände ohne Einzeltitel, einige ohne Reihentitel. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Flora of North America, illustrated by coloured figures drawn from nature

      Vol. I: M. Carey & Sons; Vol. II & III: H.C. Carey & I. Lea, Philadelphia 1824 - (10 13/16 x 8 3/8 inches). 106 uncoloured engraved plates (1 folding), from drawings by the author, by Cornelius Tiebout (29), G.B. Ellis (32), F. Kearney (23), J. Boyd (7), J. Drayton (6), C. Goodman (6), Jacob J. Plocher (2), and J.L. Frederick (1). (Plate 80 in vol.II with contemporary replacement of inner margin. Contemporary red half morocco over green/blue paper-covered boards, the flat spines divided into five compartments by double gilt fillets, lettered in gilt in the second and fourth compartments. Provenance: Owen Mason (?of Rhode Island, 1796-1873, ownership inscriptions dated 1841 noting a purchase price of $8.00) Very rare uncoloured issue of an important American flora, "magnificently illustrated" (DAB) with "Plates [that] are clear, soft and lovely" (Bennett). The work includes the first successful use of stipple-engraving in the United States. This set includes the rare 'To Subscribers' leaf in Volume II. In addition to its significance as a botanical work, Barton's Flora. is also one of the most important early colour plate books entirely produced in the United States. "The plates were made by [among others] Cornelius Tiebout, the first really skilled engraver born in the United States, although he trained in London for two years in the 1790's to perfect his technique" (Reese). This uncoloured issue is particularly interesting as Barton states in the advertisement to the first volume that some of the "plates are printed in colour" - none of the plates in the present volume show any signs of colour and are therefore a variant issue of those used in the coloured version, and not merely plates that were not hand-coloured in this country. These may constitute early experimental issues of the plates - produced before the combination of colour-printing and hand-colouring was arrived at. The text gives details of each species, its Latin binomial, common name, and class and order according to the Linnaean system, followed by interesting information about the history of the discovery of the species and details about its geographical range. The present set is particularly desirable as it includes the rare "To Subscribers" leaf occasionally found in the second volume, it is here bound between pp. 42 and 43. It was issued as a pair to pp. 41/42 but is not included in the pagination and was designed to be discarded. Like many other works of its day, Barton's book was originally issued in parts, with the first parts appearing in 1820 and the final ones in 1824, hence the dates given above. Barton, the nephew of Benjamin Smith Barton, was appointed a naval surgeon in 1809 and remained on the Navy's list throughout his life (he was buried with full military honours in Philadelphia in 1856). "In 1815 Barton was chosen professor of botany at the University of Pennsylvania, charming many with his light-hearted herborizing trips along the Schuykill and his lectures which were, contrary to bookish times, demonstrated in his well-stocked conservatory" (DAB). His botanical publications, which appeared over a relatively short span of nine years, began with his Flora Philadelphicae prodromus (1815) and culminated with the present work (1820-24) and his Vegetable materia medica of the United States (1817-19).

Imposes penalties for smuggling tobacco, foreign liquors, tea, and playing cards. Diego Portales (1793-1837), born into a prominent merchant family in Santiago, established Portales Céa y Compañía in 1821, with branches in Valparaiso and Lima. The company was granted a monopoly (@estanco) on trade in tobacco, tea, liquor, and playing cards, in return for which they serviced Chile's foreign debt. Unfortunately the government was unable effectively to control such trade, and the company went bankrupt. Its memory lingered in the name of Portales's conservative followers, known as @estanqueros.In the 1830s, Portales, as leader of the conservatives and a proponent of a strong central government, was the power behind the president. Since he was largely responsible for the Chilean Constitution of 1833, his political beliefs remained influential for another century.*** Not located in Briseño. Not located in CCPBE.

        IN CONGRESS JULY 4th, 1776. THE UNANIMOUS DECLARATION OF THE THIRTEEN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

      [Np, but Hartford, Ct.]: Eleazer Huntington, [ca. 1820-1824]. - Engraved broadside, 24 x 19 1/2 inches, printed on paper. A near fine copy. The Declaration of Independence, the foundation document of the United States, has been printed myriad times since its original publication in 1776. At first as broadsides, then as an essential addition to any volume of laws, it was from the beginning a basic work in the American canon. The present document is one of the earliest broadside reproductions of the Declaration, done within a few years of the first broadside republications. In the period following the War of 1812, Americans began to look back, for the first time with historical perspective, on the era of the founding of the country. The republic was now forty years old, and the generation of the American Revolution, including the signers of the Declaration, was dropping away. With nostalgia and curiosity, many Americans began to examine the details of the nation's founding. Among other things, such documents as the debates of the Constitutional Convention were published for the first time. It seems extraordinary that the Declaration of Independence, as created, was unknown to Americans, when the text was so central to the national ego. Several entrepreneurs set out to bridge this gap by printing reproductions of the document. The first to do so was a writing master named Benjamin Owen Tyler, who created a calligraphic version of the Declaration and published it in 1818, recreating exactly the signatures of the signers as they appeared on the original. Three other broadside printings of the Declaration were issued in 1818 and 1819, each containing ornamental borders or illustrations. These were followed in the early 1820s by the present printing by Hartford engraver and penmanship author Eleazer Huntington. Huntington followed Tyler's example by creating a calligraphic facsimile of the Declaration, but stripped out the ornaments and illustrations that had been added by previous publishers, returning the document to the simple title and text of the original, and providing the signatures of the signers in exact facsimile. According to John Bidwell's list, this is the sixth broadside reproduction of the Declaration of Independence. Bidwell locates only three copies of the Huntington printing of the Declaration, at the Huntington Library, Massachusetts Historical Society, and American Antiquarian Society. Rare, attractive, and important. John Bidwell, "American History in Image and Text" in PROCEEDINGS OF THE AMERICAN ANTIQUARIAN SOCIETY, 1988, Vol. 98, pp.247-302 (also issued as a separate pamphlet by AAS), item 6.

        Archive of material related to Daniel Dunscomb Bradford, of New York, New York, Consul at Paris, France, and a great-grandson of William Bradford, Pennsylvania's first printer, 1824-1838

      Hardcover. Very Good. The archive includes: 16 letters, 45 manuscript pages, dated 1824-1838, with 11 manuscript pages of documents and papers, dated 1827-1836, plus 162 manuscript page genealogy book of the Bradford family, dated 1825; and a 76 page manuscript "Friendship Book" of Mary Ann Rodgers Bradford, c. 1828-1838. Daniel Dunscomb Bradford (1808-1837) Daniel Dunscomb Bradford was born on 14 May 1808, the son of Jacob Bradford (1771-1816) and Elisa Dunscomb, of New York City. He was baptized at Trinity Church, New York City. Daniel was the second great grandson of William Bradford (1658-1752), the first printer in Pennsylvania, and also the printer of the first book and newspaper in New York City. Daniel's father was first cousin to William Bradford (1755-1795), the second Attorney General of the United States (1794-1795). His grandfather Cornelius Bradford was the brother of the Revolutionary War printer William Bradford (1791-1791), the printer for the first Continental Congress. Daniel was one of five children, the other four being: Margaret D., Cornelius (died young), Cornelius (second of this name), and David Dickson. At the age of 19, Daniel, or "Dunscomb" as he was called, commenced studying law and was admitted to the practice of law in 1831. He sailed for Europe after visiting England and proceeded to France, where he was appointed the American Vice-Consul at Paris, which office he held until his death, in Paris, on 5 December 1837 at the age of thirty years old. While in Paris as Consul, Dunscomb was one of two non-family members present during the burial of General Lafayette in 1834. Bradford was also appointed the secretary of a committee of Americans in Paris who organized an appropriate expression of sorrow by the American people for Lafayette's death. David Dickson Bradford (1806-?), brother of Daniel Dunscomb, married Mary Ann Rogers, daughter of Dr. George Rogers of New York City, by whom he had at least three children: Margaret Gage, George Rogers, and Mary Elizabeth. David Dickson Bradford became a seaman, and eventually captain of his own vessel. Correspondence: 11 letters (34 pp.) of Daniel Dunscomb Bradford, written to his brother, sea captain David Dickson Bradford, and his sister-in-law Mary Ann Bradford, dated New York and Paris, 29 October 1828 - 6 April 1836. One of the letters is incomplete, and two others are torn, with loss of text, with general browning, and wear. These letters mainly concern family matters, though bigger issues do intrude. In one letter (2 Jan. 1830), Dunscomb breaks the news of Cornelius Bradford's death in Jerusalem, a later letter congratulates Dickson on his forthcoming marriage, another discusses the welfare of their mother, another writes of the family fortune, or rather the lack thereof, and their careers and aspirations such as sea-captain employment possibilities for Dickson, etc. Dunscomb Bradford enjoyed writing on such subjects as how to behave as a gentleman and how to be happy in love and marriage. Dunscomb Bradford took his brother Cornelius Bradford's place as Consul in Paris on the latter's death in August 1830. Dunscomb too died young, on 5 December 1837, and was buried in Pére Lachaise. 5 miscellaneous letters (11 pp.) include: 1 letter of Capt. E.M. Donaldson to David Dickson Bradford, dated Philadelphia 22 May 1824, discussing travel plans for "Mrs. Hall" and "the children." 1 letter copy of David Dickson Bradford to his brother Dunscomb Bradford, dated New York 24 February 1833; 1 letter of David Dickson Bradford to his wife Mary dated 5 March 1834. 2 letters of Robert Dumont to David Dickson Bradford, dated New York 3 Sept. 1836 and 16 Jan. 1838, the latter written at the request of Bradford's mother, informing Dickson of the death of his brother Dunscomb in Paris. The correspondence generally soiled, browned, and worn. Some sheets torn at wax seals, etc. But it is in generally good legible con

      Seconda Edizione con l'Aggiunta di Macchine posteriori e premesse le Notizie storiche della Vita e delle Opere dello stesso Zabaglia. Compilate...dell'Avvocato Filippo Maria Renazzi. Finely engraved frontis. port. of Zabaglia (margins a little foxed), engraved vignettes on Italian & Latin titles, a large engraved headpiece, & 62 fine engraved plates (ten are folding). 4 p.l., xxix, [1], 46, [4], 48 pp. Text in both Italian and Latin. Large folio (505 x 375 mm.), fine Roman green sheep maroquiné with covers richly gilt in a panel design (a few scuff marks & defects), flat spine richly gilt (ends of spine a little worn), probably bound by the "Pope Gregory XVI binder." Rome: C. Puccinelli, 1824. Second edition, with important additions, of this finely illustrated engineering book. The first edition appeared in 1743. Zabaglia (1664-1750), "master mason of the Fabric of St. Peter's," was one of the foremost engineers and mechanics of his time. He was responsible for the maintenance of St. Peter's in Rome and designed the scaffolding and other devices used for its decoration and repair. The scaffolds -- both ground and suspension -- were extraordinary temporary structures designed to support, at the great heights of the basilica, the workers, equipment, materials, and machines necessary for restoration works, mosaic and painting decorations, the installation of statues, as well as for placing the iron hoops in the dome to stabilize cracks. Zabaglia made important advances in the technique used to graft and join wooden beams to assemble very large scaffolds and machines. He also founded a "School of Practical Mechanics." The handsome plates in this work depict Zabaglia's inventions including hoists, lifting machines, various kinds of scaffolds, machinery, tools, mosaics, artists at work, men working in a quarry, the transportation of marble and stone, the transportation and lifting of the Vatican obelisk by Fontana in the late 16th century, Zabaglia's transportation of the great obelisk of Augustus, etc. Our edition is enriched by eight new plates depicting the scaffolds made by Zabaglia's most skillful pupils, including Pietro Albertini and Angelo Paraccini. Added is a biography of Zabaglia with a detailed account of his other engineering achievements. A most handsome copy, finely bound. ❧ Dibner, Moving the Obelisks (1991). For the binder , see Cat. della Mostra Legature papali da Eugenio IV a Paolo VI (Rome: 1977), no. 284, tav. 204. Riccardi II, 642-"Bellissima...Non è noto chi abbia compilata quest'opera nella quale trovansi giudiziosi congegni meccanici per la costruzione dei fabbricati, immaginati dal Zabaglia, ma certo non descritti da lui, che era illetterato." .

        Draft of a Letter to the Catholic Association in Bentham's Hand.

      1824. Draft of an Unsent Letter by Jeremy Bentham [Bentham, Jeremy (1748-1832)]. [Draft of a Letter to the Catholic Association in Bentham's Hand]. [London]: December 9, 1824. 12-1/2" x 8" leaf removed from ledger (or notebook), ruled in red, more than 60 lines of text in ink with extensive editing, cross-outs and amendments. Autograph note by John Bowring at head of leaf reading: "JB to the Catholic Association Not sent", 9 December 1824. Fold lines, light toning. * The text begins, as amended: "For the Catholic Rents. After the example set by The Examiner. Five pound from Jeremy Bentham in the humble and cordial wish that his oppressed brethren of the Catholic persuasion will neither retaliate persecution by persecution, nor attempt redress by insurrection, but unite with the liberal among Protestants for the attainment of security for all, against depredation and oppression in every shape, by the only practicable means - Parliamentary reform, in the radical and solely efficient mode .....". This is followed by a long section, amounting to more than half the text, that is crossed out (but legible). The note by Bowring isn't entirely accurate. This letter was sent, but it did not contain the deleted text in the present manuscript draft. In his edition of Bentham's correspondence, Bowring noted at the end of his transcription that he had persuaded Bentham to suppress the text deleted. However, Bowring retained a copy of it and it is printed in full in The Correspondence of Jeremy Bentham (2006) 12:73.  The Catholic Association, formed by Daniel O'Connell (himself a close friend of Bentham), collected money, known as the Catholic Rent, to defray the costs of publishing and petitioning for the removal of the political disabilities imposed on Roman Catholics. Bentham's contribution of ?5 was noted in the issue of The Examiner for 26 December 1824. The Examiner was a weekly newspaper found by Leigh and John Hunt in 1808 and for some years was a leading intellectual journal promoting radical principles. Bowring [1792-1872] was Bentham's executor and editor. Also a notable political economist and linguist, he was the fourth Governor of Hong Kong.

        La magia del credito svelata istituzione fondamentale di pubblica utilit... da Giuseppe de Welz, offerta alla Sicilia ed agli altri Stati d'Italia.

      Napoli, nella Stamperia Francese, 5 aprile 1824.Due volumi in - 4ø grande; 4 cc. (la prima bianca), XII, 470 pp., 1 tavola ripiegata su doppio foglio parzialmente colorata (quadro rappresentativo) - 2 cc., 472 pp., una grande tabella ripiegata, 4 tabelle f.t. dopo p. 194, 3 tavole delle quali 2 ripiegate e 1 incisa in rame (fac - simile di cambiale) ed infine altre 16 cc. dopo p. 464. Bella legatura coeva in mezzo marocchino verde con tasselli in marocchino rosso e fregi in oro al dorso. Carta marmorizzata ai piatti. Bell'esemplare a pieni margini (29,3 x 22 cm), minime fioriture. Prima pregiatissima edizione di questa opera di fondamentale importanza per l'economia siciliana, e meridionale in genere, e prezioso contributo al formarsi del moderno pensiero economico. Il credito e i prestiti pubblici sono visti come il propellente capace di moltiplicare i capitali e di rivitalizzare quindi un sistema economico arretrato. L'attribuzione - o, meglio, la suddivisione - dei meriti riguardo a questa come alle altre opere di Francesco Fuoco, definite appunto dewelziane, ? questione ancora dibattutissima fra gli studiosi: sicuramente il De Welz (ovvero Giuseppe Velzi, comasco) ebbe un ruolo maggiore di quello d'un semplice committente; e altrettanto sicuramente Francesco Fuoco fu molto pi?" che un semplice estensore delle idee altrui; infatti in una lettera al Lombardi del 1831 il Fuoco avr... a lamentarsi d'essere stato sfruttato in modo vergognoso dal suo mecenate. Tuttavia nemmeno il ritrovamento di questa e di consimili testimonianze dirette serve a dirimere definitivamente la questione, poich? ognuno dei due cercava di accrescere i propri meriti minimizzando il peso degli apporti altrui. Si vedano in proposito gli ampi saggi introduttivi di Filippo Renda alla ristampa moderna delle opere del De Welz: La magia del credito svelata e il Saggio sui mezzi da moltiplicare prontamente le ricchezze della Sicilia, (Caltanissetta - Roma, S. Sciascia, 1964). Inoltre Francesco Di Battista, Una singolare terza edizione di Magia del credito di Francesco Fuoco, in "Storia del pensiero economico", n. 7 (1980), pp. 3 e ss.: si tratta di un importantissimo studio su un esemplare con note autografe del Fuoco che sembrerebbero preparatorie a una nuova edizione. Infine un pienamente esaustivo saggio bio - bibliografico a firma dello stesso Di Battista si trova in DBI L, pp. 753 - 60. Einaudi 1562. Kress, Italian, 865. Fornari M. 674 - 683 e 689 - 703.

In 1831 the plates for the atlas were sold to S. Augustus Mitchell, who revised the maps and brought out a new edition that year. Mitchell continued to issue the maps separately in pocket form until about 1850. Not in Phillips. RUMSEY 2587.

        Draft Of A Letter to the Catholic Association in Bentham's Hand.

      1824. Draft of an Unsent Letter by Jeremy Bentham [Bentham, Jeremy (1748-1832)]. [Draft Of A Letter to the Catholic Association in Bentham's Hand]. [London]: December 9, 1824. 12-1/2" x 8" leaf removed from ledger (or notebook), ruled in red, more than 60 lines of text in ink with extensive editing, cross-outs and amendments. Autograph note by John Bowring at head of leaf reading: "JB to the Catholic Association Not sent", 9 December 1824. Fold lines, light toning. $3,500. * The text begins, as amended: "For the Catholic Rents. After the example set by The Examiner. Five pound from Jeremy Bentham in the humble and cordial wish that his oppressed brethren of the Catholic persuasion will neither retaliate persecution by persecution, nor attempt redress by insurrection, but unite with the liberal among Protestants for the attainment of security for all, against depredation and oppression in every shape, by the only practicable means - Parliamentary reform, in the radical and solely efficient mode .....". This is followed by a long section, amounting to more than half the text, that is crossed out (but legible). The note by Bowring isn't entirely accurate. This letter was sent, but it did not contain the deleted text in the present manuscript draft. In his edition of Bentham's correspondence, Bowring noted at the end of his transcription that he had persuaded Bentham to suppress the text deleted. However, Bowring retained a copy of it and it is printed in full in The Correspondence of Jeremy Bentham (2006) 12:73.  The Catholic Association, formed by Daniel O'Connell (himself a close friend of Bentham), collected money, known as the Catholic Rent, to defray the costs of publishing and petitioning for the removal of the political disabilities imposed on Roman Catholics. Bentham's contribution of ?5 was noted in the issue of The Examiner for 26 December 1824. The Examiner was a weekly newspaper found by Leigh and John Hunt in 1808 and for some years was a leading intellectual journal promoting radical principles. Bowring [1792-1872] was Bentham's executor and editor. Also a notable political economist and linguist, he was the fourth Governor of Hong Kong.

        Memoria que el Ministro de Estado en el Departamento de Hacienda presenta al Senado de la Republica de Chile. Enero de 1824.

      (Santiago de Chile), n.pr., January 1824. - 4°, disbound. A few light stains on title page. Overall in good to very good condition. 20 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. Addressing the Chilean Congress, the Minister of Finance proposes means of funding the government, including taxes on capital expenditures that vary depending on whether the money is used for building, agriculture, or commerce, the use of @papel sellado for various transactions, and annual taxes on foreigners in Chile. For each of these, he includes drafts of proposed legislation. Benavente also suggests the use of copper coins and a weekly government lottery.Having supported José Miguel Carrera in the War of Independence, Benavente (1790-1867) fled to Buenos Aires while O'Higgins was in power. From 1823-1825, under Ramón Freire, he served as minister of Finance, but his support of the Portales, Céa y Compañía monopoly made him unpopular. In the 1830s he opposed Portales. From 1834 to 1861 he was elected senator nine times.*** Briseño I, 200. Not located in CCPBE. Not located in Rebiun. Not located in Copac. [Attributes: First Edition]

        A Suit of Armour for Youth.

      Published by the Proprietor 1824 - FIRST EDITION, with an engraved frontispiece and 11 engraved plates each with a flap, 1 of the flaps re-attached, some offsetting, pp. xii, 12mo, contemporary calf, gilt roll tooled borders on sides, spine gilt, rebacked (a little crudely), corners worn, contemporary ownership inscription on title of Jane Janvrin and inscription by her on fly-leaf presenting the volume to her brother Francis, sound. A handbook of moral precepts in the form of an allegorical description of knightly armour. The 11 engravings, by Cosmo Armstrong and B.L. Wright are of different pieces of equipment, which may be lifted up to uncover a depiction of the ideal character trait the piece symbolises. The plates are accompanied by a text that is inspirational but imparts much curious historical information, including references to pieces in Grimaldi's own collection. The flaps have short extensions which go through a slit in the plate, which are then pasted down on the verso. The one flap which is re-attached is simply pasted to the recto, its little extension still adhering to the verso. (Osborne p. 418; Early children's books and their illustration, Pierpont Morgan Library, 1975, p. 35-36, item 37; Praz, Studies in seventeenth century imagery p. 344, citing a copy in Blackwell's Catalogue 682)

        Recueil des Scènes Familiéres, et de Société de Paris

      1824. Exceedingly Scarce Familiar Scenes of Parisian Society Caught in the Wry[SCHEFFER, Jean-Gabriel]. J.S -, PIGAL, &c, &c. Recueil des Scènes Familiéres, et de Société de Paris. Paris: n.p. [Chez Martinet], 1824. First (only) issue, complete. Folio (13 7/16 x 10 3/8 inches: 342 x 262 mm.). Five parts in one volume. Thirty-six hand-colored lithographed plates, most signed: Chez Martinet, Lith. de Villain; numbered and captioned. Plates 4 through 36 have the blind stamp "JS" (Jean-Gabriel Scheffer).Early twentieth century three quarter dark brown morocco over marbled boards ruled in blind. Spine with five raised bands, lettered in gilt in compartments, marbled end-papers. An excellent copy, the hand-coloring bright and fresh, a few plates with light staining, toning, or wash marks.An extremely scarce book. We know of only two other complete copies (both in private collections).Only one institutional copy worldwide, at Yale, but it is incomplete with only three parts (twenty-one plates). No copies have come to auction within the last thirty-five years. Lipperheide's copy contained only thirty-four plates. Not in Colas, Hiler, OCLC or RLIN.The contemporary manners, customs, and costumes of Parisian society in typical scenes, illustrated with great charm and wry,understated humor by Swiss genre painter and lithographer Jean Gabriel Scheffer (1797-1876), who studied with Regnault and was a friend of Corot, Aligny, and Léopold Robert. His work was shown at the Salon de Paris beginning in 1822; his reputation as a designer of many wryly humorous lithographs, typically signed "J.S.," was firm. (See Benezit Vol. 9, p.354). Closely associated with printer-publisher Chez Martinet and lithographer Villain, Scheffer also created Scènes de jeunes gens (1825), Ce qu'on dit et ce qu'on pense (1829), and Petits travers (1830) with them.Première Partie:1. 8 heures du soir - signed J.S.2. 8 heures du matin - signed J.S.3.
