        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. Ristow, American Maps & Mapmakers, p446; Ristow, A la Carte pp 162-182; Schwartz & Ehrenberg pp 238-239, pl. 233; Wheat II, no 322, pp. 62-64. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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.)

Bannister (signatures on front free endpaper of vol. I). First edition. 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. Griffin considers it, 'a wide-ranging and very interesting account, by an author personally engaged in numerous projects for economic development', adding that, 'almost all of the book relates to New Granada'. The two frontispieces depict 'The Author in the Travelling Costume of the Country' and 'Precipitous Descent of a Cordillera of the Andes'. The work is uncommon on the market, and ABPC only records one set at auction since 1975. Abbey, Travel 718; Cundall 1197; Griffin, Latin America 3687; Palau 55908; Sabin 14072.

        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.

      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).

        Eighteen Views taken at & near Rangoon.

      - London, Thomas Clay, [1825]. Large Folio. Modern half red morocco over original 19th-century mabled boards; engraved pictorial title (serving as dedication leaf), engraved pictorial subscribers' list with further dedication, 3 lithographic leaves of subscribers, many of which residing in India, 18 magnificent and finely handcoloured aquatint plates; light rubbing to boards; one plate with flawed corner three inches away from printed surface, the initial two leaves with foxing and faint trace of humidity, the plates a little spotted in the margins, images clean and in suberb publisher's hand-colouring; provenance: armorial engraved bookplate Newborough inside front cover. First edition, very rare, of this pictorial documentation of the Anglo-Indian capture of Rangoon, as well as presenting the beauty and atmosphere of Burmese scenery, architecture and landscape. The first Anglo-Burmese war of 1824 to 1826 was one of the costliest campaigns ever fought by the Empire. Fifteen thousand British and Indian soldiers, and an unknown, much higher number of Burmese, civilian and soldiers, died, and the finances of the East India Company, to whose directors the work is dedicated, were ruined. The 18 plates are the first large-scale views of Burma, a part of the world pretty unknown to the British. We were unable to find out anything about the clearly very talented artist, Lieutenant Joseph Moore, 89th Foot. - The following year appeared a further series of six views, and there were two text booklets as well. Everything is very rarely found together. Abbey, Travel 404 ('rare work'). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        De markt te Nijmegen - Jean Francois Michel Mourot, ca. 1825-1840.

      ?De Markt te Nijmegen?, lithografie vervaardigd ca. 1825-1840 door J.P. Houtman te Utrecht naar een tekening van Jean Francois Michel Mourot (1803-1847). Afm. (voorstelling): 20,8 x 29,1 cm.Eeuwenlang bloeide de handel in Nijmegen. Aan de Waalkade verkocht men verse vis en hoger op de heuvels lagen markten voor koren, laken, eieren, kannen, varkens, groenten, etc. (In veel gevallen herinneren straatnamen hier nog aan.) Van producten die niet per stuk maar per gewicht werden verhandeld, moest natuurlijk het precieze gewicht worden vastgesteld. Omdat handelaren regelmatig sjoemelden met afgeschaafde gewichten, richtten vele steden een waaggebouw op. Daar zag de overheid erop toe dat de handel eerlijk plaatsvond. De waag legde de stad geen windeieren, want over alle gewogen goederen moest men waaggeld afdragen. Al in de middeleeuwen stond op de Grote Markt in Nijmegen een waag, specifiek bedoeld voor het wegen van boter.Deze Boterwaag (op de prent rechts) heeft grote poorten aan de voor- en achterzijden die waren bedoeld om karren naar binnen en weer naar buiten te laten rijden. Op de bovenverdieping zetelde in die tijd de Hoofdwacht. De oorspronkelijke bordestrap van de Waag was in 1756 afgebroken en vervangen door een zuilengalerij; iets dat destijds meer in de smaak viel. (Bij een grondige restauratie in 1886 is de bordestrap teruggeplaatst.)Aan het begin van de 19de eeuw telde Nijmegen iets meer 10.000 inwoners. De schandpaal op Grote Markt werd weggehaald in 1805. De Fransen vertrokken in 1814. Tussen 1832-1833 treft een cholera epidemie de stad: bijna 60 doden.Prijs: ?1.250,- (incl. lijst).

        A catalogue of the shells contained in the collection of the late Earl of Tankerville, arranged according to the Lamarckian conchological system; together with an appendix, containing descriptions of many new species.

      London, G. B. Sowerby, 1825. 8vo (22.5 x 14.1 cm). vii, 92, xxxiv, 3 pp., nine hand-coloured engraved plates. Later quarter cloth over contemporary limp boards. Printed paper label on the spine.= This is the work of George Brettingham the First (1778-1854), who bought the collection himself in order to sell it as a whole, or in parts. "Charles Bennet, fourth Earl of Tankerville...formed a shell collection that became famous, particularly after his death when it was put up for sale. It exceeded even the Bligh collection in choice and rare shells for it included some of the best specimens from the Portland Museum and a large part of the Calonne shell collection" (Dance, A History of Shell Collecting, p. 107-108). In all, Dance spent 2 1/2 pages of his 286-page book on the origin, contents, and sale of this collection, underscoring its importance in the history of malacology, and as a source of new species. The last three numbered pages, placed behind the plates, form a prospectus for the "Species Conchyliorum or concise original descriptions and observations, accompanied by figures of ALL the species of Recent shells, with their varieties". This pamphlet is dated January 1, 1831; it was, thus, added later. The "Species Conchyliorum", although introduced in the pamphlet as "This day is published", was begun in 1830, but never made it beyond Vol. I, Part I. with a monograph of the genus Cymba, by W. J. Broderip, and Monographs of the genera Ancillaria, Ovulum and Pandora, by Sowerby himself. Some copies of the Tankerville catalogue contain a different, 2 pp. pre-publication prospectus for the "Species Conchyliorum". Old owner's signature of "James Reid" on front free endpaper. Possibly this is the John Reid who, according to "2.400 years of Malacology", published on nudibranch eggs (1846). Spine skillfully repaired, interior very good. This copy of the Tankerville catalogue contains the 9th plate, which seems to be often missing (fide Junk Cat., 278). Caprotti, p. 220; Not in Nissen ZBI.

        Catecismo Politico para la primera enseñanza de las escuelas de la Republica de Peru

      Contemporary presentation manuscript, especial for bearing Simon Bolivar´s presentation and endorsement signed by him, praising the work, prepared the same year as the first printed edition (1825); although this does not look like a preparatory manuscript for a printed edition, this is most likely a presentation manuscript, which bears Bolivar´s imprimatur. The first printed edition is also extremely rare, only two copies are recorded according to WorldCat (one in the Library of Congress and one in the University of Texas, Benson Collection), we found one more at the Banco de la Republica of Colombia, Biblioteca Luis Angel Arango. The same endorsement found here in manuscript and signed by Bolivar is found in the printed edition, and reads "Atendiendo a la utilidad que puede producer la enseñanza de la presente obra, titulada Catecismo politico, a la juventud de la Republica del Peru, he venido en mandar que se imprima, se publique, y se circule". The dating of the endorsement is June 6, 1825, it is presumable that the author wanted to have Bolivar´s endorsement before sending it for printing (and not the other way around, printing and then sending it to Bolivar), which leads us to believe that the author prepared this manuscript to be presented to Bolivar for his endorsement, and only then sent for printing, including Bolivar´s endorsement. The book was printed in Arequipa, current seat of Constitutional Court of Peru and it´s second most populous city. The political catechism was a popular genre in South and Central America during the revolutionary period, after 3 centuries of a social order based on obedience to the monarchy and religious authorities, it was necessary to have a new order created where the same order was based on the respect to laws and the republican government; in this text Gonzalez makes a claim in favor of school education, a subject which was always of interest to Bolivar; G. Espinoza in Education and the State in Modern Peru 2013 notes "Dr. Antonio Gonzalez, author of a political catechism officially sponsored by General Simon Bolivar, considered elementary instruction the most necessary because it provided the foundation for the principles of a good political and moral education, provided knowledge to the largest amount of people, and was the basis for later acquisition of a greater scientific knowledge." Extremely rare, no copy of the printed edition is found in Palau or Sabin, neither we found any other copies of this text in manuscript in institutional libraries.

Il Crociato in Egitto, to a libretto by Gaetano Rossi, was first performed in Venice at the Teatro La Fenice on March 7, 1824. The opera "was Meyerbeer's most successful, as well as his last, opera for an Italian stage. The part of Armando was written for the castrato Giovanni Battista Velluti, which makes the work noteworthy as the last major opera with a role for that voice type. Following its Venetian première, Il crociato took other houses by storm: within a little over a year productions were mounted in Florence, Trieste, Padua, Parma and London. The work then served as Meyerbeer's entrée to Paris, where it was first performed at the Théâtre Italien on 25 September 1825 with the soprano Giuditta Pasta in the role of Armando and Nicholas Levasseur as Aladino."

        A nineteenth century album containing forty six fine watercolours.

      Probably Venice: variously dated from 1795 to 1825. Oblong small quarto album, 185 x 275mm, containing forty-six watercolours of various sizes and shapes ranging from delicate circular vignettes to larger scenes of urban and theatrical life, elegantly bound in nineteenth-century ochre morocco with ornate gilt decoration. A beautiful suite of watercolours, including a superb series of scenes of a contemporary Venetian commedia dell'arte troupe, by the Venetian painter and engraver Novelli. Featuring images from both the stage and street-performance, each of the 46 deftly drawn images is of considerable quality: this is a rare and exceptional collection that provides a wonderful insight into Italian theatre in its golden age. Francesco Novelli (1767-1836) lived his whole life in Venice where he was best known for his vivid and imaginative book illustration. He worked on Algarotti's Opere (1791-94) with his father, beginning a long and successful career culminating in his beautiful editions of Don Quixote (1819) and Gil Blas (1820). He is also known for illustrating works such as the Fasti Veneziani (1794), hinting at his abiding interest in the theatre and the performing arts. One of his most important teachers was the French artist Vivant Denon, who visited Venice in the 1790s. Denon seems to have had a formative influence on Novelli's career, not least because he introduced his pupil to the engravings of Rembrandt, noticeably influencing his style.This album includes an incomparable collection of Novelli's watercolours, with the greatest number being piquant images of a Venetian troupe of the commedia dell'arte, with especially fine depictions of Pierrot himself, as well as other key figures such as Columbine and Harlequin. It includes a remarkable series of scenes from a stage play, as well as studies of the individual performers. Indeed, many of these images are so precisely rendered that it is almost certain that Novelli depicts a well-known troupe, perhaps one with which he was personally connected.The remaining images cover all aspects of contemporary life, including several military vignettes (perhaps scenes from the diorama) as well as charming rural scenes. Several show Novelli's work at its most sympathetic, especially in his animated studies of street vendors and town squares. It is also likely that many of these scenes derive from a period when the troupe was on the road, especially as some of the liveliest show street performers, conjurors and Punch and Judy shows. These scenes reveal Novelli at the height of his powers, especially his skill in capturing the energy and fascination of the crowds that gathered to watch the impromptu performances.Unpublished, although the compilation of the album suggests that publication might originally have been Novelli's intention. This is a superb collection of images by one of the pre-eminent artists of his generation, providing an insight into Novelli's involvement with the Venetian theatre, as well as giving a unique opportunity to study the daily life of a travelling group of European artists and musicians at the turn of the nineteenth century.Early and beautifully illustrated account of New South Wales purporting to have been the work of the infamous gentleman pickpocket George Barrington. The charming hand-coloured plates are an important series of "views" of the voyage out and the early settlement. They appear for the first time in this printing, which is greatly expanded from the numerous editions of a much briefer work under approximately this title which had appeared over Barrington's name from 1795. Barrington, as is now well-attested, was most certainly not the author of this or any of the other books published in his name, but was co-opted by the London press to be the apparent author of works which were actually plagiarised from the expensive First Fleet quartos. In fact, the original source for much of Barrington's Voyage was John Hunter's Historical Journal of the Transactions at Port Jackson and Norfolk Island (1793). In turn, Barrington's Voyage, first published in 1795, was expanded into this much improved edition after "incorporating a great deal of additional material plagiarised from the first volume of David Collins' Account of the English Colony in New South Wales (1798)" (Garvey). Amongst much of interest, this edition adds a letter said to have been written by Barrington in Parramatta in 1802.Transported to New South Wales on the Third Fleet of 1791, Barrington was already a legendary hero in England. The English public's continuing interest in New South Wales and the fate of the transported convicts encouraged the publishers' appetite: they compiled information from various sources, including both official and semi-official publications as well as the popular press, to make these cheaper and thus more widely read accounts. It is quite reasonable to suggest that the little most people in Great Britain knew about New South Wales derived chiefly from one or another of the Barrington books.The book was issued by the same publisher and near the same time as the History of New South Wales, and collectors have often bound the two works to style, as here. This copy has the simple ownership stamp of the bibliographer and collector Sidney Spence.Make-up of the album:-• three portraits of peasants:•a fishmonger with his left sleeve hanging loose• a peasant women with a cob of corn• a profile of a woman in an elaborate scarf• a uniformed cuirassier rejects the entreaty of a woman• a lively scene at the market, with a grenadier, a Pierrot, and a harlequin• a crowd gathers around a conjuror in the town square• children animatedly watch a Punch and Judy show• a street performer shows a dancing bear while an urchin shows a monkey• two small round scenes:• the first of a cavalry charge• the second a peaceful domestic scene around the hearth• an infantry charge (perhaps a real scene or a diorama)• three generations of women, interior• a lively outdoors scene of the stables• two women work inside a darkened barn• four liveried horses with a cart full of hay• two small round scenes:• a scene in the yard of a hostelry• cooking in a well-provisioned kitchen• two small square scenes:• infants and burghers at a Punch and Judy show• small children crowd around an itinerant projectionist• two small square scenes:• dancing a lively jig• the children of the house at lessons• two small square scenes:• a muzzled bear is made to dance• masked members of a commedia dell'arte troupe enjoy a repast• two small square scenes:• a corpulent gent mounts his horse• a befrocked gentleman loses his hat in an impromptu swing• two small square scenes:• a mother with swaddled child and infant greets some friends• a game of cards• two small square scenes:• Pierrot chased by a 'dog'• Pierrot discovers Harlequin and Columbine (with stylized cartouche but no caption)• three medium square scenes:• the 'dog' seems to have caught Pierrot• Pierrot greets Columbine• Pierrot astride the 'dog'• two small square scenes:• a strongman lifts four children on a table by his teeth• Columbine's lover hides by pretending to be a sofa• two small square scenes:• Pierrot performs a balancing act• Pierrot discovers Harelquin and Columbine asleep• two small square scenes:• Pierrot accosted by a Satyr• Pierrot offers his hat to the 'dog'• two small square scenes:• an acrobat assumes a pose• a different acrobat stands on his hands• two small square scenes:• a female contortionist performs a trick with four glasses and a hoop• a female acrobat balances on the low-wire• two small square scenes:• one of the troupe strikes a pose• Pierrot discovers a skeleton in his closet• two small square scenes:• the skeleton torments Pierrot at table• Pierrot poses.
