One hundred La Fontainesque verse fables, illustrated with twelve evocative chalk lithographs by Engelmann, printed at his lithographic press, the first in Paris. Though better known as the pioneer of lithography in France (cf. Bigmore & Wyman I:199-200), Engelmann was an excellent draftsman (?"ein trefflicher Zeichner?": Nagler Künstler-Lexicon 4:128), as is evident from these charming vignettes. Using a variety of classic verse forms Deyeux applied his sharp wit to the foibles of his contemporaries. He published other collections on the hunt, and a number of the poems and several lithographs in this collection depict hunters or scenes from nature Gumuchian 2196 (a copy in the same publisher?'s binding, also untrimmed); Quérard II, 549.

        Mann, der sich über die nicht der Konvention entsprechenden Bekleidung einer Frau entsetzt.

      . Aquarell und Bleistift, auf Velin. 17,3:21,2 cm.. Gavarni, der zu den Meistern der Lithographie des 19. Jahrhunderts zählt, entschloß sich erst 1825 zur künstlerischen Laufbahn. Davor hatte er bei einem Mechaniker und dann bei einem Maschineningenieur eine Lehre absolviert. 1824 hatte er bereits Unterricht bei Je. Adam im Kupferstechen erhalten. 1824/25 ging er nach Bordeaux, anschließend begab er sich für drei Jahre auf Wanderschaft durch die Pyrenäen. Nach seiner Rückkehr nach Paris 1828 begann er autodidaktisch auf geistreich-ironische Weise das Pariser Leben der Salons, Bälle und des Theater zu erfassen. Diese ersten, jetzt mit "Gavarni" signierten Blätter fanden rasch Anerkennung. Die bekanntesten Magazine und Modezeitschriften warben ihn als Illustrator an. Ab 1837 arbeitete er für das Satireblatt "Le Charivari", das zwischen 1832 und 1837 herausgegeben wurde und durch das er internationale Bekanntheit erlangte. Für diese Zeitschrift, aber auch den Figaro und die zweite "Caricature" schuf er die berühmtesten Folgen. Ab 1831 war er auch literarisch tätig. Ein Aufenthalt in London 1847-1851 brachten eine bedeutende motivische Erweiterung: Er zeigt sich jetzt nicht mehr als "Chronist" der mondän-eleganten Welt, sondern als Anhänger der sogenannten "Arme-Leute-Malerei" mit ihrer realistischen und nicht idealisierenden Absicht. Es entstanden zahlreiche Blätter, die das Leben der Armen auf vielfältige Weise thematisierten. Der Tod seines Sohnes und zunehmende Krankheiten führten zum Rückzug von der Umwelt und letztendlich auch von der künstlerischen Arbeit. In den letzten Jahren entstanden keine Zeichnungen mehr und nur wenige Aquarelle. Größere Kollektionen von Handzeichnungen und Aquarellen bewahren der Louvre und das Museum in Brest.

        Chief Justice John Marshall writes on the history of medical education and the early physicians of colonial Virginia

      Autograph Letter Signed, "J Marshall," as Chief Justice, 3 pages, 9.5" x 8", Richmond, July 10, 1825 to Dr. Thomas Sewall (c. 1786-1845) discussing the history of medical education in colonial America. With integral transmittal leaf addressed in Marshall's hand to Dr. Sewall in Washington, D.C. with a black "RICHD VA JUL 14" cancellation. Marginal losses and expertly filled-in and repaired with relevant text added where necessary, expected folds, light toning, else very good condition overall. Marshall writes in full: "I have the pleasure of receiving a few days past your letter of the 6th and have to regret my inability to give you the information you request or to refer you to any source where it may be drawn. You have, I believe, your self, conjectured the truth respecting the means by which, before the revolution, medical science was acquired in Virginia; and from the character of our population ?" spread over the country, without any considerable town in which gentlemen of the purpose might acquire celebrity, very few were distinguished beyond their neighbourhoods [sic]. We had no medical school in the colony, in consequence of which many of practitioners were foreigners, and the natives never considered their education as finished without a residence of some years in Edinburgh. This continued to be the practice even after the revolution; and it is only within a few years that the opinion is established that a medical education may be completed in America. We have no accounts of distinguished Physicians from the early period of our colonial history, though it cannot be doubted that we had several of real merit, whose names from the situation of the country, were known to those only among whom they practiced. The revolution found several gentlemen of distinguished merit placed in different parts of our country, with most of whom I have had the pleasure of a personal acquaintance. General [Hugh] Mercer who was killed at Princeton, was a Physician of eminence at Fredericksburgh [sic]. He was born in Scotland and educated I believe at Edinburgh. Doctor [James] Jones, for several years a member of Congress, resided in the county of Westmorland, and was distinguished as a scholar and a physician. Doctor [James] McClure resided in Williamsburg in the early part of life, and was placed by common consent, at the head of his profession. On receiving his degrees he wrote a treatise on bile which was much applauded. Doctor [James] Currie resided in Richmond and practiced through his life with great reputation. He seemed to posses intuitively, the faculty of distinguishing the character of the disease, and of discussing the remedy. All these gentlemen received their education at Edinburgh, as did every other eminent man of the procession, at that day. I regret that it is not in my power to satisfy your enquires..." Although this letter is not published in the Papers of John Marshall, Dr. Sewall cited (and mostly quoted) Marshall's observations in the notes for the published edition his 1825 lecture on the history of medicine in early America delivered on the occasion of the opening of the medical school at Columbian College in Washington D.C. (Sewall, A Lecture Delivered at the Opening of the Medical Department of the Columbian College in the District of Columbia; March 30, 1825... 1826, pp. 32-33). Dr. Sewall was an 1812 graduate of Harvard Medical School and began practicing professional in Chebacco, Massachusetts soon thereafter. In 1819, Sewall earned some notoriety when he was convicted on two counts of receiving, concealing and disposing of the bodies of two of his patients. Following that spell of unpleasantness, he moved to Washington in 1821 where he had won an appointment as professor of anatomy at the National Medical college. In 1825 he became a founding member of the medical department at Columbian College, now known as George Washington University. He was a firm advocate of temperance and published numerous works on the science of alcohol consumption, best known for his graphic renderings of the stomachs of alcoholics in an effort to promote abstinence.

      London: for J. Hatchard and Son; and Lupton Relfe,, 1825. or A Real Picture of Slavery: but more particularly as it exists in the Island of Jamaica. In three parts. With notes. Octavo. Lightly browned, some occasional foxing, else very good in modern half blue cloth on blue paper-covered boards. First Edition of this eyewitness account of the conditions in Jamaica by an Anglican cleric, a key source for the history of this period. By no means a fanatical Abolitionist, Bickell's testimony is the more valuable for that. He attributed the sufferings of the slaves to the dullness and apathy produced by continuity, if not intensity, of toil ?- "This constant work, work, work is a principal cause of one of the greatest hardships in West Indian slavery ?- I mean the constant use of the whip; for, seeing that work is their only portion, they are inclined to be indolent" ?- and he noticed that, with a very natural perversity, slaves "take care not to put forth all their strength." Ownership inscription of [The Rev.] M.M. Preston, a contributor to The Society for the Abolition of Slavery, to the title page.

        Samlade skrifter [Collected writings]. I-V.

      1825 - Stockholm, J. Hörberg, 1825-27. 8:o. XII,(2),348,(1) + (14),412 + (10),531 + (2),504,(9) + (10),348,(2) pp. Five volumes in half calf c. 1900, slightly worn, with raised bands, gilt spines, red glazed paper labels and red sprinkled edges. Some foxing, occasional dampstaining and a few marginal tears and paper losses. Old stamp on title in the second volume. A neat suite.Published by the author's half brother Joseph Otto Höijer. Benjamin Höijer (1767-1812) was reader in philosophy at Uppsala university during the years between the French revolution and Sweden's political revolution in 1809. He was seen as one of the central figures among the student radicals in Uppsala. Höijer was the leading force in the so called Junta, whose members were Carl von Rosenstein, Gustaf af Wetterstedt, Marcus Wallenberg, G. A. Silverstolpe, E. A. Almquist and Hans Järta, among others. The revolutionary reputation of this circle of students has often been exaggerated, although the oppositional ideas of the young men to a large extent were incorporated in Sweden's new constitution in 1809.

        An album of original watercolours of cone shells and cowries, "Ex Museo G.C.B."

      circa 1817-, 1825. Quarto album, 71 leaves with a total of 114 watercolour drawings of exotic shells (23 of cowries on 9 leaves, 91 of cone shells on 62 leaves), paper watermarked Whatman "Turkey Mills" 1817 or 1818 (endpapers 1825); a particularly handsome album bound in original brown straight-grained morocco gilt, professionally rebacked with original spine laid down, red silk endpapers, spine label "Conus et Cypraea ex Museo, G.C.B." Shells of the Indian and Pacific Oceans. An exquisite album from the high-watermark of shell collecting in Europe, with over 100 fine watercolours of exotic shells, an impressive number from Indo-Pacific waters. The lettering on the spine of the present album suggests that it is a record of an individual collection, probably since dispersed, assembled by the mysterious "G.C.B."The earliest watermark of 1817 represents a useful starting date for this compilation, while the fact that the endpapers are watermarked 1825 - and indeed the style of the binding itself - confirms that it was compiled within a relatively short period of time. This was an era of great refinement in shell collecting, with famous works by George Perry and William Swainson dating from this period. Interest in shells had been aroused by the various exploratory and trading voyages of the second half of the eighteenth century, Captain Cook's voyages being the most significant. After a quiet period during the French Revolution and the Napoleonic War, collectors were active again from 1815 onwards. Among the best known of the period were Henry Constantine Jennings (1731-1819), William John Broderip (1789-1859), William Swainson (1789-1855), and the Earl of Tankerville (1743-1822).What is undeniable is that this was a particularly fine collection of its kind for this date (it includes, for example, almost 100 varieties of conus: when the famous Tankerville collection was catalogued in 1825, one of the best known collections, it included 141). The great majority of the shells depicted are derived from the Indian or Pacific Oceans, and notably include Conus marmoreus (west Pacific), Conus litteratus (Indo Pacific), Conus quercinus (Indian Ocean etc.), Conus textile (Indo-Pacific, Australia, etc.), Conus spurius (Gulf of Mexico), the striking Conus imperialis (Indo-Pacific), and the grand Conus leopardus (Indo-Pacific).The absorbing mystery of the album is the identity of the initials "G.C.B." The initial reaction of most people with whom we have discussed the album has been to speculate on a possible connection with perhaps one of the most famous families to collect in this field, the Cavendish-Bentinck family (and particularly those associated with Margaret Cavendish-Bentinck, Duchess of Portland and doyenne of the famous house Bulstrode (1715-1785). This is a tantalising prospect, but so far it has not proven possible to make any firm connection, most especially because of the initial letter "G": the only member of the family who might conceivably fit the bill is Lord (William) George H. Cavendish-Bentinck (1802-1848), a soldier and politician with no known interest in natural history.By the same token it is true that the great collector the Earl of Tankerville was actually born Charles Bennet, but again this does not account for the "G" in the initials: Tankerville would otherwise have been a particularly interesting fit as he died in 1822 and because of his known interest in the conus varieties.Beyond these tangible guesses it becomes difficult to make any terribly helpful guesses. A distant acquaintance of Sir Joseph Banks, for example, was one Admiral George Cranfield Berkeley. Nor is there a smoking gun in J.M. Chalmers-Hunt, Natural History Auctions 1700-1972, despite some close sounding names such as a Count Bentinck who had a sale at Sothebys in 1815.See also S. Peter Dance, Shell Collecting An Illustrated History (pp.135-45).

        The Improvisatrice

      London - Hurst, Robinson & Co., 1825 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A beautifully bound copy of Landon's The ImprovisatriceBound in pink leather with gilt lettering and bordersThere is a C. Smith Bookseller's label to the front pastedownLetitia Elizabeth Landon (1802 1838), English poet and novelist, better known by her initials L. E. L. Her reputation, while high in the 19th century, fell during most of the 20th as literary fashions changed. and Landon's poetry was perceived as overly simple and sentimental. In recent years, however, scholars and critics have increasingly studied her work, beginning with Germaine Greer for example in the 1970s. Critics such as Isobel Armstrong argue that the seeming simplicity of poetry such as Landon's is deceptive, and that women poets of the 19th century often employed a method of writing which allows for multiple, concurrent levels of meaning. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. The outer hinges are slightly cracked. There is some mild wear to the extremities including mild rubbing. Internally the pages are bright and clean with the odd spot, and spotting to the frontispiece and title page. Overall the condition of the book is very good..
