        Encyclopédie méthodique. Histoire naturelle: Insectes

      Paris: Panckoucke, Agasse, 1825. Nine quarto volumes, comprising seven text volumes and two of plates, 397 numbered plates and one bis; bindings a bit scuffed and a few joints starting, lower spine end of two volumes snagged, a good set overall in contemporary quarter roan with red labels. Australian insects collected by Banks and Labillardière. The first major comparative study to illustrate Australian insects. Originally published over a span of almost two decades, this is an important work of entomology. A product of the high enlightenment, the Insectes was originally included within the famous Encyclopédie méthodique, which when complete formed a staggering total of 166 quarto volumes in total (making it a contendor for Diderot's and d'Alembert's Grande Encyclopédie). The breadth of the manifest learning is phenomenal, a testament to spirit of the enlightenment.Although the entomological works of John Lewin and Edward Donovan (both published 1805) have rightly been accorded iconic status in Australian natural history, this work by Olivier has not been given any real attention despite the fact that the first four volumes date from the last decade of the eighteenth century. Scores of Australian insects are illustrated here for the first time - by our count at least 98 are firmly attributed to Australia or Van Diemens Land - most of them by comparison with the originals in the collection of Sir Joseph Banks. A selection of New Zealand bugs and others from Pacific islands also derives from the Banks collection.Olivier built on the work of the scholars of his day, and was particularly reliant on the work of his contemporary Johann C. Fabricius, who printed the earliest textual description of any insects collected on the Endeavour voyage in 1775. Olivier's brief but gracious avertissement in the first volume here suggests that the primary resources for this work were the collections of Linnaeus, the descriptions of Fabricius, and the entomological riches of London. First among equals in London, Olivier notes, is of course Banks, who personally made valuable collections during his voyages around the world with Captain Cook ("La riche collection d'insectes que ce célèbre naturaliste à rapportés de ses voyages autour du globe, avec le Capitaine Cook..."). Not only did Banks himself collect on the voyage, but his interest in insects made Soho Square the paramount collection in London over the succeeding decades, as his friends and colleagues vied for the chance to supply non-descript insects; this is neatly shown by the fact that of the bugs from all parts of the globe, literally hundreds are described from specimens in the Banks collection. Olivier is known to have visited London in 1789, when he visited Banks, but also got in touch with other English collectors including the President of the Linnean Society James Edward Smith, the nurseryman from Hammersmith James Lee, John Latham and Thomas Martyn.Equally significantly, by the publication of the fifth volume (first issued in 1807) many of the new insects being added, including several more Australian specimens, are from the Labillardière collection, and must have been gathered by the famous French natural historian on the d'Entrecasteaux voyage.This work was the magnum opus of the French physician and keen entomologist Guillaume Olivier (1756-1814). Olivier personally collected widely in Europe and Asia Minor, famously embarking on a six-year expedition to Persia, returning to France in 1798. In 1800 he was appointed a Professor of Zoology at the Veterinary School at Alfort. He was a close friend of Fabricius as well as a patron and protector of another entomologist, Pierre André Latreille, at the close of the Napoleonic era. Olivier's own collection is now chiefly at the Muséum national d'histoire naturelle in Paris.Entitlement to print and sell the Encyclopédie méthodique fell to several different publishers, not surprising given the scale of the work and its extended timeframe. The Insectes was earlier published in Paris by Baudoin, Lanneua & Desray between 1789 and 1808 under the sectional title Entomologie ou histoire naturelle des insects. In this set the first four volumes were published by Panckoucke between 1789-1792, the remainder by Agasse and his widow from 1811 to 1818.

        A Lithographic Sketch of The North Bank of the Thames, from Westminster Bridge to London Bridge, shewing The Proposed Quay, and some other improvements suggested by Lieut. Colonel Trench ? [Cover title]

      London: Hurst and Robinson and J. Dickinson, 1825. First Edition. Hand-colored lithographic panorama: 9 [of 10] plates by T.S. Baynes; lithographic folding map by Hullmandel after T. Dighton. 1 vols. Oblong folio, 10-1/2 x 26-1/2. ORIGINAL TAN WRAPPERS, printed label on front wrapper, disbound, slight cover chipping and soiling, but a fine, uncut copy in its original fragile wrappers, complete with map and leaf of letterpress; preserved in a custom cloth folding case, leather label. The North Bank of the Thames Panorama in Original Wrappers This splendid panorama consists of a series of views of the Thames, two of which (numbered at left 2a and 2b) show the same scene from St. Martin's to Waterloo Bridge with the proposed improvements and as it appeared in 1825. The image averages 7-1/2 inches in height, and totals 194 inches in length. Lacking in the present copy is the plate displaying the New Quay. In addition there is a two-page leaf of letterpress "Prospectus of Proposed Improvement on the Banks of the Thames" and a lithographed map "Plan of the River Thames ... Shewing the line of New Quay, as proposed by Colonel Trench, M.P." In 1824 Trench proposed constructing an eight-foot wide ornamental quay along the North bank of the Thames to improve the appearance of the river and relieve traffic congestion in the Strand. To win public support for the project, this panorama was produced, but opposition by tradespeople and others was sufficient to defeat the bill in the House of Commons in March 1825. Plans for an Embankment were subsequently revived, and work begun in 1864. Abbey, Life in England, 496; Hyde, Panoramania, 143

Bevorzugt porträtiert Grimm Sonderlinge, alte Menschen, Randgruppen der Gesellschaft, ungewohnte Physiognomien. Sein Blick hatte sich dafür schon in München geschult, wo das Bildthema "Alte Köpfe" durch Josef Georg von Edlinger (1741-1819), von dem Grimm in seinen "Erinnerungen" berichtet, und durch Johann Georg von Dillis (1759-1841) der jüngeren Maler-Generation wie Ludwig Emil Grimm, Lorenzo Quaglio, Peter Heß u.a. durchaus vertraut war.

Durch seine Brüder Jacob und Wilhelm Grimm wurde er mit Clemens Brentano (1778-1842) und Achim von Arnim (1781-1831) bekannt, mit denen er zusammenarbeitete. Wohl 1807 lernte Grimm Bettine Brentano (1785-1859) kennen, von der er zahlreiche Porträts anfertigte. In November 1808 zog er nach Landshut zu Brentano und dessen Schwager Friedrich Carl von Savigny (1779-1861). Auf ihre Vermittlung ging er nach München und erlernte Kupferstechen bei Carl Ernst Christoph Heß (1755-1828). Zugleich studierte er an der Münchner Akademie unter Andreas Seidl (1760-1834).

        Autograph letter signed to Jean-Baptiste Bory de Saint-Vincent

      Philadelphia: 7 March, 1825. Three-page autograph letter, on a single sheet of wove paper, folded to letter-size 230 x 185 mm., manuscript to three pages, the fourth page an address panel, small tear at the original seal, but in excellent condition. Péron's particular friend, and co-author. A very rare letter by Lesueur, naturalist and artist of the Baudin expedition, sent from Philadelphia to his fellow naturalist on the voyage, Jean-Baptiste Bory de Saint-Vincent.Charles Alexandre Lesueur (1778-1846) was appointed to the Géographe nominally as a gunner, but in effect because of his artistic abilities. Promoted after Bory de Saint-Vincent and many of the other more prominent natural historians defected from the voyage at Ile de France, Lesueur's contributions were of great moment, so much so that together with François Péron he was given the task of preparing the official account of the voyage account for publication. Lesueur moved to Philadelphia in 1815 and spent the following two decades in the United States where he pursued his natural history studies with great vigour.Here, Lesueur thanks Bory for sending him notes on the Dictionnaire classique d'Histoire Naturelle (a massively influential publication edited by Bory de Saint-Vincent and published between 1822-1831: Darwin had all seventeen volumes with him on board the Beagle). Lesueur particularly queries an article by Henri de Blainville regarding certain sea-animals and their structures, referring in the process to the earlier work of the zoologist François Marie Daudin. As becomes clear from the text of the letter, Lesueur opposes some of the mainstream theories from France, and particularly proposes that the Hyalaea should be considered a separate family and not part of the molluscs: Lesueur published widely on this species, and several were named after him (they are now known by the family Cavolinioidea, or "sea butterflies"). Furthermore, Lesueur undertakes to search for certain plants in the United States, as Bory de Saint-Vincent has asked him to do, and promises to send some drawings.Lesueur letters are very scarce on the market, most being held in institutions: his personal archive is in the local natural history museum of Le Havre, his home town.

        Memoir on the roads of Cefalonia

      By Lt. Col. C.J. Napier, C.B. Inspecting Field Officer in the Ionian Islands, and Resident of Cefalonia. Accompanied by statistical tables, state of the thermometer, &c. &c. &c.The author, Sir Charles James Napier (1782-1853), was an army officer, philhellene and friend of Byron, whose later career saw him as de facto military controller of operations in the north of England against the Chartists, commander of the army in Sind and latterly governor of Sind and author of the apocryphal "Peccavi" telegram. Napier's role in the Ionian Islands, and his simultaneous friendship with the arch-philhellene Byron, lasted from 1822 to 1830 when he was the official British Resident in Cefalonia. During those years he carried out extensive public works including a network of roads over the entire island."Like Thomas Carlyle, who became his admirer, Napier believed in the merits of the strong man who sought to use power to reshape the world. ...... Napier's belief that he himself understood the needs of the time, and that if he were free to use military and civil power he could advance the common good, was first demonstrated at Cephalonia, one of the larger Ionian Islands, then a British protectorate. After much searching for employment, he was appointed an inspecting field officer in the Ionian Islands in 1819. He discovered the post required little work, but it gave him an opportunity to visit the Greek mainland, which was the beginning of his passionate interest in Greek independence. The insurrection of 1821 broke out a few days after he left, and he began to dream of becoming a leader of the Greeks in a war against the Turks. When he got back to England he published a pamphlet, The War in Greece, which vividly denounced the horrors of Turkish rule and claimed that the Greeks needed, and would welcome, foreign military intervention.In 1821 Napier was appointed to a new post in the Ionian Islands—military resident in Cephalonia. He was, as he put it, ?'the despotic lieutenant of a lord high commissioner?' (Napier, Life, 1.304), who had charge of all the islands. Napier later referred to these years from 1822 to 1830 as the happiest in his life. He had a mistress, Anastasia, reportedly a fiery Greek patriot, and they had two daughters, Sarah Susan and Emily Cephalonia....... The Greeks of Cephalonia were, Napier thought, like the Irish, in a state of wretched barbarism because of oppressive rulers. Given a free hand, without interference from incompetent civil superiors, Napier believed he could use his combination of military and civil authority to bring order and prosperity to Cephalonia and perhaps to all of Greece. He was later to make the same judgement about India. During this period his great friend was Lord Byron, and they spent much time together devising schemes for freeing Greece. Byron thought Napier was the man to lead the army of liberation, and perhaps to govern Greece, but the Greek Committee in London baulked at the cost of such an endeavour.......Napier often enumerated his achievements in Cephalonia: harsh but fair justice; roads built to end isolation and to make trade possible; docks and other public works constructed; the weak protected against the strong. According to the enthusiastic biography by his brother, he changed the deplorable morality of the people by ?'inducing industry, honesty, and useful knowledge?' (Napier, Life, 1.417). Then, as often happened in Napier's career, his superior, the high commissioner Sir Frederick Adam, began to criticize his work, charging him with misuse of funds on unauthorized projects, disobedience to his superiors, and the use of forced labour to build his roads, including priests made to work on them in their ecclesiastical robes. Napier, despite appeals to London and fierce denunciations of Adam, was removed from his command in 1830." [Ainslie T.

He discovered the post required little work, but it gave him an opportunity to visit the Greek mainland, which was the beginning of his passionate interest in Greek independence. The insurrection of 1821 broke out a few days after he left, and he began to dream of becoming a leader of the Greeks in a war against the Turks. When he got back to England he published a pamphlet, The War in Greece, which vividly denounced the horrors of Turkish rule and claimed that the Greeks needed, and would welcome, foreign military intervention.In 1821 Napier was appointed to a new post in the Ionian Islands—military resident in Cephalonia. He was, as he put it, ?'the despotic lieutenant of a lord high commissioner?' (Napier, Life, 1.304), who had charge of all the islands. Napier later referred to these years from 1822 to 1830 as the happiest in his life. He had a mistress, Anastasia, reportedly a fiery Greek patriot, and they had two daughters, Sarah Susan and Emily Cephalonia....... The Greeks of Cephalonia were, Napier thought, like the Irish, in a state of wretched barbarism because of oppressive rulers. Given a free hand, without interference from incompetent civil superiors, Napier believed he could use his combination of military and civil authority to bring order and prosperity to Cephalonia and perhaps to all of Greece. He was later to make the same judgement about India. During this period his great friend was Lord Byron, and they spent much time together devising schemes for freeing Greece. Byron thought Napier was the man to lead the army of liberation, and perhaps to govern Greece, but the Greek Committee in London baulked at the cost of such an endeavour.......Napier often enumerated his achievements in Cephalonia: harsh but fair justice; roads built to end isolation and to make trade possible; docks and other public works constructed; the weak protected against the strong. According to the enthusiastic biography by his brother, he changed the deplorable morality of the people by ?'inducing industry, honesty, and useful knowledge?' (Napier, Life, 1.417). Then, as often happened in Napier's career, his superior, the high commissioner Sir Frederick Adam, began to criticize his work, charging him with misuse of funds on unauthorized projects, disobedience to his superiors, and the use of forced labour to build his roads, including priests made to work on them in their ecclesiastical robes. Napier, despite appeals to London and fierce denunciations of Adam, was removed from his command in 1830." [Ainslie T.

Papier verge decoupe et entierement noirci a l'encre au recto, 55-105 x 100-200 mm. Numerotation manuscrite au verso, une seule legende manuscrite, egalement au verso. Les 25 silhouettes ont ete placees chacune, a l'epoque moderne, entre un feuillet cartonne blanc creme et un feuillet transparent (190 x 255 mm).

      s.d., (ca. 1825),. 21 x 27 cm (le boitier). Le tout est reuni dans un boitier cartonne, piece de titre sur le couvercle, languette de ruban interieure permettant d'exhausser les feuillets.. Tres rare collection de silhouettes (ou decoupages, en allemand 'Scherenschnitte') originales, realisees peu apres 1821 et la mort de l'empereur: la qualite du papier verge utilise et les caracteristiques des inscriptions au verso (couleur de l'encre, souplesse de la plume et ecriture) ne laissent aucun doute. Ce superbe ensemble, realise avec autant de finesse dans l'execution que de naivite dans la conception, releve de la tradition iconographique populaire, illustrant aussi bien des aspects evenementiels que psychologiques de la vie de Napoleon a partir d'anecdotes identifiables et emblematiques, meme si le detail de certaines silhouettes trahit une influence des grandes oeuvres peintes a l'epoque: la representation de Napoleon franchissant les Alpes est clairement inspiree du tableau de David et la silhouette montrant Rapp annoncant a Napoleon la defaite des Russes a la fin de la bataille d'Austerlitz reprend distinctement le tableau de Gerard. La collection comprend les pieces suivantes, presentees dans l'ordre specifie de maniere manuscrite au verso de chaque silhouette (nous avons conserve cet ordre, ce qui explique un certain flottement chronologique): 1) Bonaparte au pont d'Arcole (17 novembre 1796) / 2) Passage des Alpes (14-25 mai 1800) / 3) Probablement la reddition de Mantoue, ou l'on voit Bonaparte et la silhouette empanachee de Kellerman (2 fevrier 1797) / 4) Un soldat a genoux devant Bonaparte. / 5) Bonaparte dirige la bataille. / 6) Austerlitz: le general Rapp vient annoncer a Napoleon la defaite de l'armee russe (2 decembre 1805) / 7 et 8) Napoleon au bivouac, veille de bataille. / 9) Certainement Napoleon montrant avec admiration le travail de Larrey, peut-etre a la bataille d'Eylau ou il lui offre sa propre epee en signe de reconnaissance (8 fevrier 1807) / 10) Napoleon devant le tombeau de Frederic le Grand (25 octobre 1806) / 11) Clemence de Napoleon: grace du prince de Hatzfeld (octobre 1806) / 12) Essling: adieux de Napoleon a Lannes (22 mai 1809) / 13) Napoleon designe un soldat a l'attention de deux personnes en civil / 14) Reddition de Vienne (13 novembre 1805) / 15) Napoleon saluant un blesse / 16) 'On ne passe pas!' une sentinelle respecte la consigne et interdit le passage a Napoleon / 17) 'Apres vous, sire!' : Un soldat offre a boire a l'empereur / 18) A la barriere de l'Etoile, a Paris (legende inscrite au verso de la silhouette) / 19) Napoleon pointant le canon a Montereau / 20) Vol de l'aigle: le colonel de La Bedoyere entrainant le 7e de ligne en faveur de Napoleon (7 mars 1815) / 21) Les adieux de Fontainebleau (20 avril 1815) / 22) Napoleon a Saint-Helene / 23) Mort de Napoleon (5 mai 1821) / 24) Tombeau de Napoleon a Sainte-Helene / 25) Retraite du corps polonais a Leipzig, coupee par l'explosion du dernier pont sur l'Elster (19 octobre 1813).

        Original Signed Fair Copy of “Silent Worship” by Joseph John Gurney

      Joseph John Gurney, 1825. 1st Edition. Other Other. Fair. (Autographed Documents & Letters, Poetry) Original signed Fair Copy of “Silent Worship” by Joseph John Gurney. Circa 1825. Only difference between published poem and this copy is that line 14 begins with “He” rather than “And.” Signed at bottom of page. Single sheet, measuring 10 x 8 inches. Slight toning and edge wear. Fold marks. Top section separated at fold. Chip near bottom of page along fold. Fair condition. A philanthropist by nature, Joseph John Gurney aided his sister Elizabeth Fry in her campaign for prison reform and the end of capital punishment in Great Britain. In later trips to North America and the West Indies, Gurney also campaigned against slavery. Coming from a family of influential Norwich Quakers, he was recognized in 1818 as a minister by the Religious Society of Friends. In the mid-1800s, Gurney led a dispute regarding doctrine and evangelism which caused one of the multiple theological schisms amongst the Society of Friends in both England and America. Later labeled Gurneyites, they favored Scriptural authority in opposition to the Wilburite preference for Spirit-led ministry.

        Autograph letter signed to Jean-Baptiste Bory de Saint-Vincent

      7 March, Philadelphia 1825 - Three-page autograph letter, on a single sheet of wove paper, folded to letter-size 230 x 185 mm., manuscript to three pages, the fourth page an address panel, small tear at the original seal, but in excellent condition. Péron's particular friend, and co-author. A very rare letter by Lesueur, naturalist and artist of the Baudin expedition, sent from Philadelphia to his fellow naturalist on the voyage, Jean-Baptiste Bory de Saint-Vincent.Charles Alexandre Lesueur (1778-1846) was appointed to the Géographe nominally as a gunner, but in effect because of his artistic abilities. Promoted after Bory de Saint-Vincent and many of the other more prominent natural historians defected from the voyage at Ile de France, Lesueur's contributions were of great moment, so much so that together with François Péron he was given the task of preparing the official account of the voyage account for publication. Lesueur moved to Philadelphia in 1815 and spent the following two decades in the United States where he pursued his natural history studies with great vigour.Here, Lesueur thanks Bory for sending him notes on the Dictionnaire classique d'Histoire Naturelle (a massively influential publication edited by Bory de Saint-Vincent and published between 1822-1831: Darwin had all seventeen volumes with him on board the Beagle). Lesueur particularly queries an article by Henri de Blainville regarding certain sea-animals and their structures, referring in the process to the earlier work of the zoologist François Marie Daudin. As becomes clear from the text of the letter, Lesueur opposes some of the mainstream theories from France, and particularly proposes that the Hyalaea should be considered a separate family and not part of the molluscs: Lesueur published widely on this species, and several were named after him (they are now known by the family Cavolinioidea, or "sea butterflies"). Furthermore, Lesueur undertakes to search for certain plants in the United States, as Bory de Saint-Vincent has asked him to do, and promises to send some drawings.Lesueur letters are very scarce on the market, most being held in institutions: his personal archive is in the local natural history museum of Le Havre, his home town.

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.
