        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).

        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 Grand' Opera... Riduzione completa per Canto con Accomp.to di Forte Piano Del Sig.r Mo. Luigi Truzzi. Proprietà dell' Editore No... Deposto all' I.R. Bibl.a Prezzo Fr. 30. [Piano-vocal score]

      Milano: Ricordi Grua e Co. [PNs 2046-2048, 2099, 2100-2104, 2129, 2131-2138], 1825. First Edition. Laterza, Il Catalogo numerico Ricordi 1857, pp. 70-74. OCLC no. 52156273. 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." Steven Huebner in Grove Music Online.. Oblong folio. Quarter ivory vellum-backed ivory boards, titling gilt to spine. 1f.

        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.

        [BALLAD] Van Dieman's (sic) Land

      IN: The everlasting songster, containing a great variety of sentimental, comic and other songs, for the present year. Lincoln : Printed by and for R.E. Leary, Silver-Street [c.1825]. Small octavo, title leaf with woodcut vignette, [22] pp, closely trimmed, but crisp and clean; an unrecorded ballad pamphlet. [BOUND WITH] The Royal Visit, containing a full and circumstantial account of every thing connected with the King's visit to Ireland ... Dublin : Printed by C. Crookes, for P. Byrne, 1821; [AND] Wright, G.M. An historical guide to the city of Dublin ... London : Baldwin, Cradock, and Joy, 1825; firmly bound in gilt lettered, slightly later nineteenth century blue cloth (boards stained). An anonymous ballad comprised of eight 4-line verses which tells the story of three men from Nottingham who are convicted of poaching and transported to Van Diemen's Land for 14 years. "... The cottages we lived in, were built of Clods and Clay, and rotten straw for bedding but we dare not say, nay; Our cots we fenced with fire, & slumber when we can, To drive wolves and tigers upon Van Dieman's Land ... There was a girl from Birmingham, S.W. was her name, For 14 years transported - we all well knew the same, Our planter bought her freedom, and married her; off hand she gave us good usage, upon Van Dieman's Land ...." For a discussion of the balladVan Dieman's Land, see Atkinson and Roud,Street Ballads in Nineteenth-Century Britain, Ireland, and North America (pp 55-6). Atkinson and Roud suggest that this popular ballad was published as a reaction to the Night Poaching Act of 1828, and note "a high degree of textual conformity" between versions printed in Preston, Manchester, London, Portsea, Birmingham, Necastle-upon-Tyne, Edinburgh and Glasgow. Other examples of this ballad are held in Australian collections. A variant, printed on a broadside with the ballad Sweet Home, published in Newcastle-on-Tyne by Fordyce around 1830, is held in the collection of the National Library of Australia (Ferguson, 1402c). The State Library of New South Wales holds another separately issued broadside with the balladsVan Dieman's Landand Pretty Caroline,published in London by Such around 1825. The present version is a previously unrecorded variant of Roud, 519.

        A Brief Sketch of the Life of Horace Carter, Who Was Executed.

      1825 - Worcester, 1825. The Value of Education [Trial]. Carter, Horace [d.1825], Defendant. A Brief Sketch of the Life of Horace Carter, Who Was Executed in Worcester, Dec. 7, 1825, For the Crime of Rape. Together with Remarks on Early Education. Worcester: S.n., 1825. 16 pp. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5-1/4"). Stitched pamphlet. Light soiling to title page and final leaf, minor tears and chipping to some leaves, including title page, light browning and foxing throughout. Early owner annotations to title page, inkspots to a few leaves. A scarce title. $850. * Only edition. Carter, a thief and petty criminal, was executed for the rape of an elderly woman resident of the public almshouse in Worcester. Carter confessed to the crime, and offered drunkenness and his lack of moral instruction as excuses. A sociological text, the Brief Sketch says almost nothing about Carter's crime and trial. In the form of six lessons, it outlines the steps that led him to the gallows. It argues, overall, that a childhood education would have transformed him into a law-abiding, productive adult. OCLC locates 9 copies, none in law libraries. Cohen, Bibliography of Early American Law 13781.

Joli demi-maroquin rouge à coins d'époque, dos à nerfs orné. Légères salissures et éraflures, un coin cassé. L'avènement des chemins de fer et celui de la pierre lithographique ont permis l'essor des recueils de paysages romantiques dont "Les Voyages" du Baron Taylor sont à la fois l'ancêtre et le sommet du genre. Les planches sont des estampes originales, tirées hors-texte, dessinées par les plus grands artistes du moment. Inventée par Senefelder en 1796, la lithographie fut introduite à Paris en 1816 sous l'impulsion de Godefroy Engelmann. Taylor fit appel à ce dernier pour son ouvrage. Cette publication est, selon Brunet, l’une des premières et des plus importantes productions françaises de la lithographie, née sous l’impulsion de James Taylor, Charles Nodier et Alphonse de Cailleux. Brunet IV-684 ; Vicaire VII-763.

        Journal of a Residence and Travels in Colombia, During the Years 1823 and 1824.

      - London: Printed for Henry Colburn, 1825. 2 vols., 8vo, xvi, 524; viii, 515 pp. Two hand-colored frontispieces, one engraved, the second an aquatint; two large folding maps (duplicates). Contemporary full green polished calf, backstrips gilt with red morocco labels, covers decoratively bordered in gilt and blind, board edges and turn-ins gilt-rolled, all edges marbled, marbled endpapers, green silk page-markers. Gift inscription dated 1836 on flyleaf. The errata slip mentioned in Abbey is not present. Bindings lightly rubbed along joints, with a few dings to the backstrips; light offsetting from frontispieces on to title-pages; a handsome set, more than complete with the extra map. First Edition. Captain Cochrane, born into a distinguished (and notorious) Royal Navy clan, took a two-year leave from the Navy to advise the Colombian pearl fishery how to protect its divers from sharks, to travel around the country, and to study possibilities for copper mining. The breadth of his curiosity was apparently limitless and he records his adventures in absorbing detail, from observations of fandango dancers and muleteers, to a very early description of the indigenous method for extracting dart poison from frogs (probably the Golden Poison Frog). The two frontispieces, showing "The Author in the Travelling Costume of the Country" and a "Precipitous Descent of a Cordillera of the Andes in the Province of Choco," are outstanding. One wonders how the second copy of the very good map, compiled and engraved by the remarkable Sidney Hall, was acquired. Abbey, Travel, 718. Sabin 14072. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Îles Sandwich: Maisons de Kraïmokou, Premier Ministre du Roi. Fabrication des étoffes.

      Paris: c. 1825. Proof before numbering, 290 x 420 mm., a fine rich impression on wove paper, "86" added in manuscript to upper right. A beautiful engraved view, prepared for the official account of Freycinet's voyage in the Uranie, of the house of the Hawaiian King Kamehameha's Chief Minister Kalanimoku (whose name is transcribed here as Kraïmokou; his name was sometimes written as Karaimoku, or variations on Crymoku, but he was widely known as William Pitt, having adopted the name in honour of the British Prime Minister, and sometimes addressed as Billy Bitt). Kalanimoku was an important liaison with the French during their 1819 visit to the islands, widely respected for his reliability and trustworthiness -- for which he was often referred to as the "Iron Cable of Hawaii". He featured heavily in the published account of the voyage for this reason, but also because he expressly requested that he be baptised by the French cleric on the voyage (the scene of his baptism aboard the French ship is one of the most famous images of this period of Hawaiian history). Kalanimoku is seen here standing in the doorway of one of his houses behind his wife Likelike, who is making tapa cloth. In the foreground is an Olo board, the largest of the Hawaiian wooden surfboards, which were reserved for royalty.The image later appeared in the huge official publication of the voyage but this is an example of a proof stage of the engraving, before it has been numbered for inclusion in the series of engravings. This proof represents the last stage in the printing process, before the Historique album itself was printed, and is known to have come from the Freycinet family archive: its presence there is no surprise, given how closely Freycinet is known to have supervised the production of the official account of the voyage, and the close watch he kept on all details of the publication, and particularly on the illustrations. Provenance: Louis de Freycinet, commander of the Uranie; subsequently in Freycinet family archives, dispersed in the twentieth century. Very good condition, with wide margins.

        Decamerone

      London - William Pickering, 1825 Book. Fair. Hardcover. First edition.. A set of The Decameron by Giovanni Boccaccio. Collated: Complete in three volumes with the 10 Stothard Plates. First edition thus with teh Foscolo introduciton. Scarce. Giovanni Boccacciowas an Italian author and poet, a friend, student, and correspondent of Petrarch, an important Renaissance humanist and the author of a number of notable works including The Decameron, On Famous Women, and his poetry in the Italian vernacular. Boccaccio is particularly notable for his dialogue, of which it has been said that it surpasses in verisimilitude that of virtually all of his contemporaries, since they were medieval writers and often followed formulaic models for character and plot. The Decameron, with the subtitle of Prince Galehaut is a 14th-century medieval allegory by Giovanni Boccaccio, told as a frame story encompassing 100 tales by ten young people. Boccaccio probably began composing the work in 1350, and finished it in 1351 or 1353. The various tales of love in The Decameron range from the erotic to the tragic. Tales of wit, practical jokes, and life lessons contribute to the mosaic. In addition to its literary import, it documents life in 14th-century Italy. Condition: In original publisher's cloth bindings with paper labels to the spines. Externally, rather worn. Corners are bumped on all three volumes and boards are stained. Spines are chipped and the back strips are lifting. Front joint is very weak on volume I and likely to detach. Front hinge failed to volume III. Internally, binding is loosening in places. Pages 273-4 and 277-84 are loose in volume I. Pages are generally bright and clean with some scattered foxing. There is a bookplate to the front pastedown in volume III. Overall: FAIR..
