        The Temple of Jupiter Olympus and the Acropolis of Athens "Le Temple de Jupiter Olympien et l'Acropolis d'Athens

      Greece: Paris "Imprimerie de Dondey-Dupré, Rue St Louis, No 46, Au Marais." 1825-37. Coloured lithograph of the Olympieion with the Acropolis from Louis Dupré's " Voyage â Athènes et â Constantinople...". Original hand colour; verso blank; blind stamp of Dupré as issued. The view shows the Temple of Olympian Zeus, with the Acropolis in the background; from this angle it is possible to see part of the town , the Plaka district, on the Acropolis slopes. Interestingly Dupré illustrates a gathering of Turks beside the temple seemingly being addressed by an Imam, suggesting that the space was used as an open air mosque. Bright & clean; slight crease causing lightening of the colour of the sky in the middle of the view. Louis Dupré [1789-1837]. A pupil of Jacques-Louis David in Paris, Louis Dupré became resident in Rome and was appointed official painter to the prince Jerome Bonaparte, in 1811. In 1819 he traveled to Greece. He was received by the French consul Fauvel in Athens and introduced into Greek society allowing him to make his paintings of important personalities of the time, both in Athens and in Joannina where he portayed Ali Pascha, his family and attendants. He continued to Thessaly and from there he sailed to Constantinople, where he made the acquaintance of Prince Michael Soutzo of Moldavia with whom he returned to Italy via Romania. His work " Voyage â Athènes et â Constantinople" was published in 10 livraisons, in Paris in 1825 through to 1837, consisting of 40 lithographs: portraits, costumes and views of Athenian antiquities. [Colnaghi of London pirated 2 of the portraits of Ali Pascha and published them before Dupré.] The work became synonymous with the Greek War of Independence. The image of Mitropolos, holding the Greek standard symbolises the Greek victory.

        A New Hierogliphical Bible: Being a careful selection of The most Important and interesting Passages in the Old and New Testament, regularly arranged From Genesis to Revelations. To which is added, The life of our Blessed Saviour, and the Holy Evangelists. Illustrated with nearly Four Hundred Engravings on Wood

      London: Published by All the Booksellers. Printed and Sold by William Dean, Market-Street, Manchester, [no date], [1825 - 1849]. 12mo (in 12s and 6s), 144 x 80 mms., pp. vi, [7] - 132, woodcut frontispiece, 388 woodcut vignettes in text, recent green quarter sheepskin, contemporary marbled boards (slightly rubbed); a very good copy, with the 19th century autograph of "Ch. A. Bodenham" on the recto of the front free end-paper. "The mode of instruction by Hierogliphics originated with the ancient Egyptian priests and philosophers; but their motive for using it was widely different from ours; not to diffuse instruction, but to confine it to a select few, was their objects: ours, on the contrary, is to engage the attention, by striking the eye, and to make the lesson delightful as well as profitable." From the Preface. This edition seems to be almost identical to that published in Manchester by S. Johnson and Son in 1839 and reprinted several times after that. For this imprint, I found copies only in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library, Toronto

      London: Printed for Thomas Kelly, [1825?]. 6 vols., 8vo, variously paginated, and complete with 49 plates. 20th-century half calf, marbled boards, red and black morocco labels, an attractive set. Vol. 5 is dated 1825; the other vols. are undated Printed c. 1825, Òa re-issue of 5 volumes of a work issued in parts in 1819-1824, with an additional 6th volume... Includes some Irish cases and an extensive account of the Cato Street conspiracy. Largely unsigned engravings and aquatints. Portraits of the Cato Street conspirators drawn by A. Wivell and engraved by R. Cooper. Other contributors listed in the entry at Trinity College Library Dublin include ÒThomas Kelly; William Clowes; Abraham Wivell; Robert Cooper; Herbert Ward; Charles Henry Sanford; and Walker & CockerellÓ. DNB notes that it first appeared in 1734: ÒA list of Wilford's publications may be found in the Daily Courant (7 January 1734). From 1731 to 1741 he published a number of titles in parts by subscription, of which the most interesting are two duodecimo volumes of Select Trials É at the Sessions-House in the Old Bailey (1734), covering some Ôhair-raising varieties of crimeÕ (Wiles, 207). This is the first Newgate Calendar and reprints or condenses not only the usual sessions paper and ordinary's account, but also some scarce ephemera. The emphasis is on the sensational and bizarre, but the facts are reliably reported; a reprint with two more volumes (not by Wilford) of a continuation appeared in 1742.Ó

        PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE. NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER...EXTRA. TUESDAY, DECEMBER 6, 1825

      Washington: National Intelligencer, 1825.. Broadside, 23 x 19 inches. Several hundred lines of text printed in five- column format. Minor creasing, occasional foxing. Very good. An impressive copy of a rare piece. Expertly matted, and protected with a mylar sheet. Adams' first State of the Union address. Before becoming president, Adams was the chief architect of the Monroe Doctrine, and it is with joy that he states that a treaty of "Commerce and Navigation" has been entered into with the Colombian Republic. This treaty was the first between the United States and any Latin American government. Among other interesting topics discussed are compensation rates for War of Independence veterans, the contribution of West Point to the militia, and the establishment of a uniform system of weights and measures. Adams attempts to prod Congress into establishing a national university on land bequeathed by Washington for that purpose. Of particular note is Adams' summation of the progress being made on the construction of a marble monument within the capital, under which Washington's family had granted their consent to lay the first president's remains. This broadside printing was issued by the NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, the newspaper of record in Washington. It would later be printed in the newspaper. AMERICAN IMPRINTS 23021 (only the Huntington copy).

        Memoirs of... Comprising His Diary from 1659 to 1669, Deciphered by the Rev. John Smith, A.B. of St. John's College, Cambridge, from the Original Short-hand Ms. in the Pepsyian Library, and a Selection from His Private Correspondence. Edited by Richard, Lord Braybrooke.

      London: Henry Colbourn, 1825. . First edition. Two volumes. 4to. xlii, 498, (2), xlix, (1); (iv), 311, (1) pp. Later 19th century brown half morocco over marbled boards with all edges and endpapers matching, spine with raised bands, gilt lettered to three panels, "presentation copy" printed in red to both half titles, a pencilled inscription presenting the set to a Lady Williams Wynn on behalf of Lord Braybrooke and his brother the Rev. George Neville, master of Magdalene College, Cambridge on the second free endpaper. 12 full page plates, 1 double page and two illustrations at the beginning and end of the Life of Pepys, volume I extra illustrated with two full page portraits of Braybrooke and Neville. Spines very slightly faded, light wear to extremities, a little foxing towards the rear of volume II, a very good set nonetheless. The first printed edition of Pepys' memoirs, published just over 150 years after their original composition. The diary had been in the possession of Magdalene College for the best part of a century before John Smith decoded Pepys' shorthand. Braybrooke and his brother co-edited Smith's manuscript and whilst acknowledgement of his effort is made in this edition, his contribution was played down in subsequent editions.

        SAMMLUNG VON SCHWEIZER-PFLANZEN. [COLLECTION OF SWISS PLANTS]

      Zürich, 1825. Hardcover. 191 x 121 mm (7 1/2 x 4 3/4"). [257] leaves. 43 fascicles (of 80) in four portfolios (lacking the text leaf for "chrysanthemum leucanthemum" and with the text leaves for "buxus sempervirens" and "mespilus germanica" in contemporaneous manuscript). Loose as issued in printed stiff board portfolios, flat spines with black leather labels, ribbon ties at fore edge of two volumes (missing on the others), original cardboard slipcases. WITH 257 HAND-COLORED LITHOGRAPHS OF SWISS FLORA by Jonas Labram David (of 258: missing "urtica urens"). Nissen 838. Board portfolios a little soiled, a couple of trivial stains (only), otherwise fine, both the attractively colored plates and the text leaves consistently quite clean and fresh. This charming collection of alpine flowers was compiled by Swiss botanist and statesman Johann Hegetschweiler (1789-1839) and painstakingly lithographed and hand colored by Jonas Labram David (1785-1852) and his daughter Luise, as part of a larger work documenting the plants of Switzerland. The complete work took 23 years to finish. Each plate is accompanied by a leaf of text in German describing the plant and giving its Linnean classification. Each plant is delicately delineated, with additional close-up rendering of the flower head and the seed pod. The hand coloring is careful, accurate, and quite pretty.
