        Tunnel, The

      London: T. Brown, 1825. "The Earliest Peep Show of the Thames Tunnel" [PEEP SHOW]. The Tunnel. London: Pubd. June 16th, 1825 by T. Brown. Oblong twelvemo (4 11/16 x 5 3/4 inches; 120 x 145 mm.) in original paper concertina form. Top board with oval opening (1 5/8 x 2 3/4 inches; 40 x 70 mm.). There are six panels within including, the rear panel. Peepshow opens to a depth of 26 1/2 inches; 673 mm., revealing two tunnels with pedestrian and vehicular traffic. Small stain from early sellotape repair to lower first fold on bellows, otherwise near fine. Housed in the original asparagus-green cardboard slipcase with printed pictorial label on front cover. Rubbed at extremities. Quite scarce. According to OCLC there are only five copies in libraries and institutions worldwide. (NY Public Library; Smithsonian Institution; Art Institute of Chicago; Indiana University, & Jacob S. Mauney Memorial Library, North Carolina). "The start of the construction in 1825 of the Thames Tunnel, the "Eighth Wonder of the World," made international news. On August 23, 1825, the Philadelphia newspaper the National Gazette wrote about the underground tunnel that would connect the opposite banks of the Thames River for commercial purposes as "the commencement of [a] novel undertaking, which will be read with interest." Constructed after the revolutionary designs of Marc Brunel (1769-1849), the novel undertaking led not only to persons reading about it with interest but to the production of novelties. From the onset of construction and despite floods and collapses in the 1820s and 1830s, visitors flocked to see the tunnel. Merchandise vendors selling all manner of souvenirs, including peepshows, quickly followed. The engineering feat spurred publishers to issue over fifty different designs of Thames Tunnel peepshows between 1825 and the early 1860s. No other subject comprised as many of them. By probable consequence, the contemporary term "tunnel book" soon thereafter superseded "peepshow" in our lexicon for these devices. "The earliest peepshow of the Thames Tunnel." (Ralph Hyde. #195, p. 177). The first Thames Tunnel peepshow issued in 1825 by London publisher T. Brown served as the model for the graphic design of the devices, including S. E. Gouyn's, through the 1830s. Comprised of the imagined Eastern and Western archways, a look through the book's peephole reveals pedestrian and vehicular traffic, including men on horseback, carriages, and horse-drawn wagons." (The Library Company of Philadelphia). "The peep-show seems to have been a British invention and the earliest ones are usually the best. The Germans, with their onslaught on the British juvenile market in the 1830's copies, cheapened and coarsened the thing, but the later French ones are the daintiest of all. In modern times the toy has been occasionally revived for advertising purposes." (Percy Muir. Children's Books of Yesterday, p. 190). Ralph Hyde. "Paper Peepshows", p. 28, # 195; Percy Muir. Children's Books of Yesterday, # 991 (p. 190).

        L'hermitage des Camaldoli

      1825 - - Florence circa. 1825, 23,2x16,8cm, une feuille sous marie-louise. - Lithographie originale signée Florence Lit. Salucci 97°515 dans l'angle inférieur droit et Charlotte dans l'angle inférieur gauche. Vue de l'ermitage de Calmadoli dans la haute vallée de l'Arno en Toscane. Cette lithographie d'une exceptionnelle qualité fut réalisée d'après un dessin de Charlotte Bonaparte (mention Charlotte en bas à gauche), et exécutée à Florence par Salucci, lithographe ayant travaillé pour le compte de la famille Bonaparte, et qui a entre autres réalisé un portrait de Napoléon III (Bibliothèque nationale de France). Le village toscan de Camaldoli, berceau de l'ordre bénédictin des Camaldules depuis le début du XIe siècle, se devine seulement à travers la végétation, ses deux tours reconstruites vers 1713 visibles entre deux arbres. Le monastère était une halte privilégiée des époux Bonaparte, Charlotte et Napoléon-Louis, neveux de Napoléon 1er, mariés en 1826 à Florence. Tous deux parcourent la Toscane dont les paysages inspirent à Charlotte de charmants croquis dans un style romantique raffiné. La passion commune des deux époux pour les arts les amène à fréquenter des artistes qui les encouragent dans leur intense activité et avec qui ils collaborent, comme Salucci, qui exécute cette lithographie pour Charlotte Bonaparte, mais aussi le graveur Samuele Jesi, le peintre Leopold Robert ou le dessinateur Giovanni Riveruzzi. L'artiste, la princesse Charlotte Bonaparte (1802-1839), nièce de Napoléon Ier et peintre de grand talent à la personnalité forte et attachante, fut un membre éminent de la société européenne cultivée de la première moitié du XIXe siècle. Dès son plus jeune âge, elle est plongée dans les fastes de l'empire puis dans les déboires de l'ère post-napoléonienne, qui contraint sa famille à l'exil à travers l'Europe et outre-Atlantique. Malgré la chute de l'empire elle s'entoure d'artistes tout au long de sa vie, et navigue entre l'Italie, l'Angleterre, les Etats-Unis d'Amérique et deviendra même l'élève de David durant son séjour à Bruxelles entre 1820 et 1821. Arrivée à Florence en 1824, elle n'a de cesse de parcourir et immortaliser les paysages toscans et y forme également un salon artistique qui rassemble habitués, artistes italiens et étrangers, intellectuels et membres de la famille Bonaparte. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Original lithograph signed Florence Lit. Salucci 97 ° 515 in the lower right corner and Chatlotte in the lower left corner. View of the hermitage of Calmadoli in the upper valley of the Arno in Tuscany. It was made in Florence by Salucci, a lithographer who worked for the Bonaparte family, and who, among other things, produced a portrait of Napoleon III (Bibliothèque nationale de France). This lithograph of exceptional quality was realized for Charlotte Bonaparte (mention Charlotte lower left). The Tuscan village of Camaldoli, the cradle of the Benedictine order of the Camaldolese from the early eleventh century, only guessing through the vegetation, its two towers rebuilt 1713 visible between two trees. The monastery was a favorite stop of the spouses Bonaparte, Napoleon Charlotte and Louis, siblings and nephews cousins of Napoleon 1st, married in 1826 in Florence. Their common passion for the arts leads them to frequent artists who encourage them in their intense activity and with whom they collaborate, such as Salucci, who performs this lithography for Charlotte Bonaparte, but also the engraver Samuele Jesi, the painter Leopold Robert or the draftsman Giovanni Riveruzzi . Both travel the region whose landscapes inspire them and stay in the Tuscan villages to which they are attached. [Attributes: First Edition]

        A letter to John Harvey, Esq. containing an examination of a pamphlet, entitled 'Mrs. Graham's statement of facts' relative to the balloon.

      Norwich Burks and Kinnebrook printers 1825 - 8vo., 29 + (3)pp., including the final blank, title a little dust marked else a fine, uncut, copy, sewn as issued, now preserved in a modern cloth portfolio, spine gilt lettered. First and only edition. This is a long letter of complaint about the unsatisfactory preparation and launch of a manned balloon which Stark had been asked to fill with gas prior to launch. The flight had been organised by the enthusiastic 'patron of aerostation', the Norwich alderman, Colonel John Harvey. The balloon belonged to the celebrated Margaret Graham ('Mrs. Graham the only English Female Aeronaut') and her husband. In the event, on this occasion the balloon ascended with Colonel John Harvey and Mrs Graham as passengers, Mrs Graham having taken the place of her husband in order to reduce the payload. Ascending from Richmond Hill, Norwich, the balloon travelled only 6½ miles in a 19-minute flight. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Vue du temple de Vesta et de la fortune virile

      1825 - - (Naples) circa. 1825, 13x19cm, gouache 6,8x11,5cm, une feuille sous marie-louise. - Belle gouache originale sur papier bis, datant du premier quart du XIXe siècle, inscrite Tempia di Vesta e della Fortuna virile sur la marge inférieure. Les gouaches napolitaines représentant cette vue du forum Boarium de Rome (sur l'actuelle Plazza della Bocca della Verità) se rencontrent rarement. On y voit ici le temple monoptère dédié à Hercule Olivarius, construit au IIème siècle avant J.-C. par un architecte grec et financé par un marchand. Il fut faussement appelé 'Temple de Vesta' (tempio di Vesta) au XIXème siècle, faisant référence à un autre aedes à l'extrémité est du Forum romain, dont il ne reste que quelques vestiges. Ce temple dédié à Hercule, transformé en église à la fin de l'empire romain, a quant à lui été parfaitement conservé. Sur la droite, on aperçoit le Temple de Portunus, également appelé à tort 'Temple de la Fortune virile' (tempio della Fortuna virile), dédié au dieu des marins, datant du Ier siècle avant J.-C. Gouache typique de la « peinture souvenir » qui se développe au XIXe siècle, pour satisfaire les nombreux voyageurs d'agrément qui viennent effectuer leur Grand Tour d'Italie. Ce voyage initiatique à travers les vestiges antiques, les merveilles de l'architecture renaissance et les paysages bucoliques est entrepris par une élite européenne fortunée et cultivée, friande de ces gouaches, apanage de l'homme « bien fait ». Rome, Turin, Padoue, Florence, Sienne, Venise, Naples mais aussi la Sicile et Capri sont des destinations incontournables, qui sont ensuite immortalisées par ces gouaches, très souvent bordées d'une marge foncée comme ici, et qui rehausse les couleurs vives présentes dans l'œuvre. Sur cette même marge, l'artiste indique à l'encre l'endroit, ou la date - un des thèmes les plus usités étant le volcan du Vésuve, on marquait la date de l'éruption. La taille relativement réduite des œuvres permettait un transport aisé, ornant les intérieurs d'aristocrates. Des formats plus petits (10 x 7 cm ou 16 x 10 cm) étaient aussi réalisés pour être mis dans des albums, ce qui est le cas ici : cette gouache faisait partie d'un album amicorum assemblé entre 1825 et 1826, regroupant des vues de paysages lacustres et de villes italiennes (Naples, le lac de Côme, Florence.) parmi des gravures, lithographies, dessins, et lavis. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Original gummed print, dating from the first quarter of the 19th century. This print, taken from the Saint-Jean district in Geneva on the right bank of the Rhone, was later added to a set of Italian landscapes in an amicorum album among engravings, lithographs, drawings, and wash. Executed in the first quarter of the 19th century, these prints summarize the stages of the "Grand Tour" of Italy and its surroundings, the obligatory journey of the post-Napoleonic nobility who came to Italy or Switzerland to make an artistic and bucolic pilgrimage to the great Renaissance works, urban panoramas and delightful mountain lakes. The European aristocracy was therefore fond of these prints of good graphic quality enhanced by brilliant colors, which brought together the high places of architecture and the Italian and Swiss countryside.

        Map of Pennsylvania, Constructed from the County Surveys Corrected and Improved to 1825

      Benjamin Tanner, Philadelphia, 1825 - Unrecorded example of Melish's map of Pennsylvania State 3. Large folding engraved map on six sheets,dissected in 40 sections and laid down on linen, with contemporary hand-colour in outline, trimmed with pale blue silk; folding into marbled paper ends and loosely inserted in contemporary red roan backed marbled paper chemise, gilt. Unrecorded example of state 3: with an additional imprint, not present on the 1822 editions of the map, found below the bottom border on the right: "Published by B. Tanner, Engraver. No. 74 South Eighth Street, Philadelphia", without manuscript ink annotations in the upper left corner of the map as on the State 1a 1822 editions. John Melish's map of Pennsylvania is one of the earliest important large format maps of an individual American state. The state of Pennsylvania authorized it with an 1816 legislative act, and John Melish created it using county maps from a variety of surveys conducted between 1816 and 1820. He delivered it in March 1822. As with his map of the United states, Melish meticulously compiled the best available information and regularly updated his map. After Melish's death in December 1822, Philadelphia engraver Benjamin Tanner made no less than 6,447 corrections before publishing this updated version in 1825. Tanner took pains to list his many additions and improvements in a February 17, 1825, letter. In addition to Pennsylvania, it includes all of New Jersey and parts of Delaware and Maryland, although in less detail. Longitude is marked by using Washington, D.C. as the Prime Meridian. Very rare on the market, the present example is the Babinski copy of the "unrecorded and very rare. state 3." one of an estimated number of 64 copies published, and bearing the additional imprint "Published by B. Tanner, Engraver. No. 74 South Eighth Street, Philadelphia." With a large vignette depicting the Pennsylvania state seal.

        Autograph Letter, Signed ("Thomas Moore"), to Owen Rees

      Sloperton Cottage, [Wiltshire], 1825. 2 pp. pen and ink on bifolium, integral address leaf, remnant of wax seals. 8vo (9 x 7-1/4 inches). Creased and worn from prior folding, some soiling, blank corner portion of address lead torn away, hinges from prior mounting. 2 pp. pen and ink on bifolium, integral address leaf, remnant of wax seals. 8vo (9 x 7-1/4 inches). Moore on Scott and Byron. Thomas Moore writes to the publisher Owen Rees, describing a visit to Sir Walter Scott, and announcing his plans to commence working on his Life of Byron. Reading in part, "I would not have lost this visit to Scotland for any consideration. Great as Scott is to the world, one must see him closely & at home to appreciate him properly, and the words with which he parted from me: 'my dear Moore, we are now friends for life,' were worth going round the world for. " Moore visited Scott at Abbotsford from 29 October through 2 November 1825. He wrote Scott a note of thanks on 6 Decemeber. The letter continues, with Moore discussing the details of his planned Life of Byron, for which he attempts to enlist the help of Byron's friend John Cam Hobhouse and the poet's half-sister Augusta Leigh: "I now mean to write to Hobhouse & Mrs. Leigh about the Life [of Byron]. Sir Walter is of opinion that they cannot, in honour & good feeling, do otherwise than atone to me for the sacrifice I have made by giving me every assistance in their power, & he advises that I should get Lord Lansdowne to be my mediator with them, which suggestion, perhaps, deserves some consideration. My visit to Scott was, in this respect, particularly lucky, as I have reason to think that Murray had some hopes of persuading him to undertake the Life, himself, which, after our confidential intercourse on the subject, is, of course, out of the question. This, between ourselves." The sacrifice of which Moore refers is his returning to Murray the 2,000 guineas paid for Byron's memoirs. Byron had entrusted his memoirs to Moore with the proviso that they published after his death. Moore then sold the papers to Murray, but the sale was converted to a loan with the papers as collateral. Moore did not pay off the loan until after Byron's death, at which point Murray and Hobhouse, desirous of protecting their late friend's reputation, wished the papers destroyed. The memoirs were destroyed over Moore's objections, to the great relief of Byron's family but to the inestimable loss to readers of English literature. In a letter to Hobhouse of 21 December 1825, Moore selflessly proposed a "Beaumont & Fletcher partnership" to work together on writing the Life, but Hobhouse continued in his opposition to any posthumous treatment of Byron. Moore's Letters and Journals of Lord Byron was published in 1830, and despite its omissions and selective editing it has remained "the mainstay of biographers ever since" (Marchand, Byron: A Portrait, p. 473).

        Voyage du capitaine Hiram Cox dans l'empire des Birmans, avec des notes et un essai historique sur cet empire, les peuples qui occupent la presqu'île au-delà du Gange, et sur la compagnie anglaise des Indes orientales

      Paris, Arthus-Bertrand, 1825, in-8, 2 vol, carte, [4]-XI-CLVI-210 + [4]-402 pp, 5 pl, veau vert, filet doré et roulette à froid en encadrement sur les plats, roulette sur les coupes, dos à nerfs orné, tranches marbrées (reliure de l'époque), Carte de l'empire birman, dressée et dessinée par Desmadryl jeune, et 5 lithographies coloriées à la main par Demanne, représentant des personnages en costume. PREMIERE EDITION française de ce récit de voyage en Birmanie. En 1795, au service de la Compagnie anglaise des Indes orientales, le capitaine Hiram Cox fut envoyé en Birmanie pour tenir des négociations commerciales auprès de la cour impériale. Satisfait de sa conduite, on le chargea aussitôt de secourir la population de la province d'Arakan, qui était alors tyrannisée par le gouvernement birman. Mais au cours de cette mission, sous un climat ambiant pénible, Hiram Cox trouva la mort en 1798. Ses papiers et son journal furent ensuite récupérés par son fils Henry, qui les publia en 1821 à Londres, sous le titre The Journal of a Residence in the Burman Empire, soit plus de vingt ans après la parution de l'ouvrage du major Michael Symes, qui avait aussi participé à la première mission (An account of an Embassy of the Kingdom of Ava.., Londres, 1800). "Complément indispensable" du voyage de Symes, la relation de Cox livre un témoignage précieux sur la Birmanie, une "contrée tellement peu connue, que son nom semble [...] se révéler pour la première fois à l'Europe" (p. XI de l'Avertissement). Ouvrage enrichi d'un grand nombre de notes et d'un essai historique sur l'empire des Birmans, par Chaalons d'Argé (1798-1869). Quelques rousseurs, dos légèrement passé. Bel exemplaire relié avec goût. Brunet n°20718 (pour l'éd. anglaise) ; Quérard II-107.)

The author went to Colombia for the purpose of investigating the pearl fisheries, and his work gives extensive accounts of Caracas and Bogotá, a shorter account of the trouble in Buenos Aires, and details of Simon Bolivar (to whom the work is dedicated) and the progress of the war of liberation.

The two frontispieces depict 'The Author in the Travelling Costume of the Country' and 'Precipitous Descent of a Cordillera of the Andes'.

        Carta plana de la Ria de Guayaquil desde el Rio de Tumbez, e Isla del Muerto, hasta la confluencia de los rios de Bodegas y de Daule

      A very fine chart of Guayaquil (Ecuador), drafted upon the cartographical findings of the Malaspina expedition of the Pacific coastline of South America, on board the corvettes Descubierta and Atrevida, and updated with later surveys of the region. The Malaspina expedition profited from some of the best Spanish cartographers as members of the crew. The chart provides plenty navigational aids, as depths and sand banks. The city has been a major center for maritime trade since colonial times, evidenced by the pirate attacks of Cavendish in 1586, L´Hermite in 1684, and in 1687, by French pirates. The map is rare, we have been unable to find any other examples having been auctioned, and only one copy at the BNE.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Steigentesch").

      O. O. u. D., [wohl Ende 1825]. - 2 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 4to. Velinpapier; Wasserzeichen: "T Edmonds 1823". An den (namentlich nicht genannten) Fürsten Metternich: "Erlauben Euer Durchlaucht einem Menschen, der vom Rande des Grabes zurückkehrt, sich Ihnen mit dem Vertrauen und der Offenheit nähern zu dürfen, mit denen mir Euer Durchlaucht ehmals erlaubten zu Ihnen sprechen zu dürfen. Nach dem Ausspruch meiner Aerzte wird biß zum neuen Jahre die lezte Spur meiner langen und schmerzlichen Krankheit verwischt seyn, aber ich werde 52 Jahre alt, und meine Zukunft liegt zu unbestimmt vor mir, als daß ich nicht wagen sollte, Euer Durchlaucht gehorsamst zu bitten, mir zu sagen, ob ich Hoffnung habe, Euer Durchlaucht wieder anzugehören und den Rest meines Lebens noch einmal einem Staate widmen zu können, dessen Grösse Ihr Werk ist und dem ich, als meinem Wohlthäter, alles danke, was ich bin und was ich besitze. - Sollte dieß nicht seyn können, so fühlen Euer Durchlaucht, wie nöthig es für mich ist, einen Punkt zu wählen, wo mein Vermögen hinreicht, mir die Annehmlichkeiten zu verschaffen, die Gewohnheit und Alter bedürfen. - Ueberall wird mich die Erinnerung glücklich machen, dem größten Staatsmann unserer Zeit angehört zu haben und zuweilen seines Beifalls vielleicht nicht ganz unwürdig gewesen zu seyn [.]". - Spuren alter Faltung; am ersten Blatt recto oben rechts in Rötelstift numeriert "2". In literarischer Hinsicht machte sich Steigentesch um die Entwicklung des Wiener Salonlustspiels verdient. "Außer schöngeistigen Arbeiten widmete [er] den Kriegsvorkommnissen [.] warme Theilnahme, kehrte 1813, als Jedermann zu den Waffen griff, zur Armee zurück und wurde Generaladjutant des Feldmarschalls Fürsten von Schwarzenberg. Als solcher verstand er es, die Aufmerksamkeit des Fürsten Metternich auf sich zu lenken und wurde nun mit verschiedenen wichtigen Missionen betraut [.] Noch immer Günstling Metternich's ging er während der 'Hundert Tage' [.] in die Schweiz, die als Hauptbasis der Operationslinie dienen sollte, und erhielt darauf vom Kaiser als Anerkennung das Commandeurkreuz des Leopoldordens [.] Nach einer Erholungsreise durch Frankreich und Italien [.] wurde Steigentesch noch einige Male mit diplomatischen Aufträgen (Gratulation zur Vermählung des Kronprinzen von Preußen u. a.) betraut, mußte sich aber bald, durch bedenkliche Anzeichen der Wassersucht genöthigt, von allem öffentlichen Wirken zurückziehen, bewohnte im Sommer meist sein Landhaus Laa bei Wien und starb am 30. December 1826. - Steigentesch ist eine der interessantesten Figuren des beginnenden 19. Jahrhunderts, in fast jeder Beziehung ein Product des napoleonisch-metternichischen Zeitalters" (ADB 35, 578).
