        Grund-Plaene, Durchschnitte und Façaden nebst einigen Details der Synagoge in München erbaut im Jahre 1824/25. Nach dem Entwurfe und unter der Leitung des K. B. Bauraths und Hofbau-Decorateurs Johann Métivier

      - Two suites of 12 lithographed plates, the first set of 12 in black-and-white (several a little foxed) and the second duplicate set in fine original coloring. 7, [1] pp. Small folio, orig. printed blue upper wrapper bound in orig. reddish-orange glazed boards, covers with a gilt border, spine gilt, a.e.g. Munich: J.M. Herrmann, n.d. [but ca. 1825]. This work describes the first synagogue built in Munich; it is the presentation copy given to the royal house of Bavaria, specially bound and with an extra suite of hand-colored plates. This is a rare book and our copy, with the additional set of plates, appears to be absolutely unique. In 1790 there were only 127 Jews living in Munich. They earned their livelihood as contractors for the army and the royal mint, merchants dealing in luxury wares and livestock, moneylenders, and peddlers. Since there was no legal basis for their residence in Munich, they did not have the right to practice their religion, and every year they had to pay a special tax to enable them to observe Sukkot. In 1805 a "Regulation for Munich Jewry" was issued (it formed the basis for the Bavarian Judenmatrikel of 1813); among other privileges, the Jews were permitted to inherit the right of domicile, to conduct services, and to reside in all parts of the city. During the Napoleonic Wars, the number of Jews was augmented by immigrants, and by 1814 there were 451 Jews in the city. Two years later, the Jewish community was formally organized and in the same year the community was given permission to establish a cemetery. In 1824 a permit was issued for the construction of a synagogue. The synagogue on the Westenriederstrasse was the first structure initiated by the newly empowered Jewish community. The architect Jean Baptiste Métivier (1781-1857), was royal building inspector who designed many palaces for the nobility as well as furniture. He favored a more classical style for the building and believed it should serve as a model for future synagogues in the Bavarian kingdom. He was supported by the King but his ideas were not carried out as later synagogues were built more in the oriental style. The Westenriederstrasse synagogue and the St. Emmeram Castle in Regensburg were Métivier's most important commissions. The synagogue was destroyed by the Nazis in 1938 during Kristallnacht. A fine deluxe copy of a very uncommon book. From the Wittelsbach library of the dukes and kings of Bavaria. ? Pfister II, 2100-2111. Thieme-B., XXIV, 439. Lentner 1892.

Limited to 340 copies, of which this is one of thirty copies on large "papier vélin," reserved for presentation to the members of the Société des Bibliophiles Français and magnificently bound in very fine mosaic cathedral-style binding by Joseph Thouvenin. Privately printed, this is one of the earliest Russian private library catalogues and was written by the owner himself with the aid of Charles Piquet. This is one of the earliest specialized private collection catalogues of atlases and maps. Lobanov-Rostovskii's magnificent collection consisted of maps, globes, atlases, printed works on geography, cartographical incunabula (including the Ptolemys of 1475, 1478, 1482, 1486, and 1490, etc.), and related early MSS. 2269 items. Lobanov-Rostovskii (1788-1866), Russian diplomat and soldier, formed one of the richest private libraries ever collected in Russia which he left to the Russian state. "Thouvenin (1790-1834), was the outstanding binder of the French Restoration period. His fame was so universal that both Balzac and Stendhal mentioned him in their novels; it persists to the present day. Among his clientèle he also counted English and Russian collectors. Although he did not invent the style "á la cathédrale," as is often claimed on his behalf (the London binder Whitaker was it originator), he brought it to perfection, and became its principal practitioner in France."-Breslauer, Historic & artistic bookbindings from the Bibliotheca Bibliographica Breslaueriana (1986), no. 27.

        An Armenian and his Wife. "Un Prince Arménien et sa Femme.( Duz-Oglou).

      Turkey & Caucasus: Paris "Imprimerie de Dondey-Dupré, Rue St Louis, No 46, Au Marais." 1825-37. Coloured lithograph of Agop Duz Oglou and his wife from Louis Dupré's " Voyage â Athènes et â Constantinople...". Original hand colour; verso blank; blind stamp of Dupré as issued. The image shows an Agop Duz Oglou reclining on a divan smoking a chibouque with his wife standing in front of him. Dupré spent three months in Constantinople in 1819. In that time, he was introduced to several rich Armeniansby his host, M. Jouannin, a dragoman of the French Embassy. Agop Duz Oglou was a banker and the premier supplier of jewelry to the court. As a result of envy of the position and wealth the family( established over a hundred and fifty years) they were persecuted for political and religious reasons; accused of propagating Catholicism, 2 brothers were beheaded and the whole family including the women and children were imprisoned. Condemned to death by the corps of the Ulemas, The Mufti resisted the influence of court favourite Halet Efendi and the sentence was eventually commuted to exile; Duz Oglou spent his years in exile researching the coasts and islands of Greece and Asia Minor the first Armenian to do so. The Firmin of 1820 sentenced them to permenant exile but with the death of Halet Effendi in November 1822, the Grand Vizier defended the family before the Sultan and claimed a terrible crime had been done to the them. Within months the Sultan recalled them to Constantinople and restored all their property and privileges. The shocking thing is that all this trouble came to the family only 2 days after Dupré left Constantinople. Removed from a frame; evenly toned; colours bright; some spotting to margins; tear to upper margin (40mm) repaired with archival tape to verso. 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, Louis Dupré took a six-month tour of Greece and Turkey, accompanied by three affluent English gentlemen, Messrs Hyett, Vivian, and Hay. 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. Upon arriving in Constantinople his companions left quickly, frightened by an outbreak of the plague. Dupré, however, remained and completed a series of watercolors. Nevertheless, the Englishmen funded Dupré's entire trip in exchange for these drawings, of which the artist also made duplicates that he exhibited at the Salon of 1824. 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, based upon these drawings. [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 symbolizes the Greek victory. Louis Dupre?'s" Voyage a? Athe?nes et à Constantinople "is a fascinating example of a travel book so contradictory it begs to be read against the grain. Taking the form of a costume album, it is based on notes and drawings made during the artist's voyage in the Ottoman Empire in 1819. However, the book was produced in France from 1825 to 1839, after the outbreak of Greek insurrections against Ottoman rule in 1821, a popular cause in France. This contextual gap between the moment of travel and the moment of production accounts for the work's contradictory aspects. It is overtly philhellenic, taking the side of the Greek rebels in their conflict with the Ottomans, seeing in the insurgence a revival of ancient ideals and culture. Yet key aspects of the work, particularly its costume images, tug against and undermine its underlying turcophobia and, ultimately, its nationalist, essentialist message of Hellenic regeneration. Dupre?'s colorful plates are striking and even hauntingly memorable, arresting the viewer's attention. His close-up depiction of boldly posed figures introduces an ambiguity into his travel account that belies its ideological frame.

        Dimitrius Mavromichalis "Démétrius Mavromichalis.

      Philhellenic: Paris "Imprimerie de Dondey-Dupré, Rue St Louis, No 46, Au Marais." 1825-37. Coloured lithograph of Dimitrius Mavromichalis from Louis Dupré's " Voyage â Athènes et â Constantinople...". Original hand colour; verso blank; blind stamp of Dupré as issued. The image shows the young warrior holding a sword against a background of the wild Mani countryside and sea. As one of the later lithographs it is more than likely that it was posed for and painted in Paris where Demetius Mavromichalis , the fifth and last son of Petrobey, Mavromichalis was studying between 1828 and 1831. It is beleived that Dupré wished to honour the heroic history of the Mavromichalis family and its role in the Revolution. The Swiss Philhellene Jean-Gabriel Eynard isbeleived to have recommended Demetrius for his" sweet character and good behaviour" though he had reservations about the progress of his studies and the debts he was running up. Born in !809 the youngest son of Petrobey Mavromichalis, he would have been too young to have taken an active role in the Revolution of 1821. His father became a member of the Filiki Eteria,in 1819 and in 1819 he brokered a formal pact among the major kapetanaioi families. On March 17, 1821, Petrobey raised his war flag in Areopolis, effectively signaling the start of the Greek War of Independence. His troops marched into Kalamata, and took the city on March 23. After the summer of 1822, Petrobey retired from battle, leaving the leadership of his troops to his sons (two of whom were killed fighting). Demetrius would spend many years living in Paris and entered the military reaching the rank of major. he took an active part in the revolution of October 1862 which saw King Otto leave the country, Mavromichalis served in the interim administration and became Minister of the Military. he died in Athens in 1879. Removed from a frame; even toning; colours faded; some light spotting to margins. 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, Louis Dupré took a six-month tour of Greece and Turkey, accompanied by three affluent English gentlemen, Messrs Hyett, Vivian, and Hay. 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. Upon arriving in Constantinople his companions left quickly, frightened by an outbreak of the plague. Dupré, however, remained and completed a series of watercolors. Nevertheless, the Englishmen funded Dupré's entire trip in exchange for these drawings, of which the artist also made duplicates that he exhibited at the Salon of 1824. 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, based upon these drawings. [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 symbolizes the Greek victory. Louis Dupre?'s" Voyage a? Athe?nes et à Constantinople "is a fascinating example of a travel book so contradictory it begs to be read against the grain. Taking the form of a costume album, it is based on notes and drawings made during the artist's voyage in the Ottoman Empire in 1819. However, the book was produced in France from 1825 to 1839, after the outbreak of Greek insurrections against Ottoman rule in 1821, a popular cause in France. This contextual gap between the moment of travel and the moment of production accounts for the work's contradictory aspects. It is overtly philhellenic, taking the side of the Greek rebels in their conflict with the Ottomans, seeing in the insurgence a revival of ancient ideals and culture. Yet key aspects of the work, particularly its costume images, tug against and undermine its underlying turcophobia and, ultimately, its nationalist, essentialist message of Hellenic regeneration. Dupre?'s colorful plates are striking and even hauntingly memorable, arresting the viewer's attention. His close-up depiction of boldly posed figures introduces an ambiguity into his travel account that belies its ideological frame. In particular, the costume images, resembling Ottoman-produced costume albums, implicitly celebrate a notion of empire-as-diversity that contradicts Dupre?'s nationalist text.

        THE SUBSTANCE OF THE SPEECH OF GENERAL SIR JOHN DOYLE, BART. G.C.B. AND K.C. AT THE INDIA HOUSE, UPON THE HYDERABAD PAPERS, ON FRIDAY, MARCH 4, 1825.

      London, Matthew Iley, 1825. FIRST EDITION 1825. 8vo, approximately 220 x 130 mm, 8¾ x 5¼ inches, 77 pages, finely bound in full straight grain black morocco, triple gilt ruled outer border enclosing elaborate gilt and blind border to covers, triple ruled inner border with corner ornaments, faux gilt raised bands, richly gilt in compartments, gilt title, all edges gilt, red endpapers. Binding slightly rubbed at head and tail of spine and at corners, endpapers darkened at edges, very occasional small pale mark to margins of pages. A very good copy of a very scarce pamphlet. General Sir John Doyle (1756 - 1834), was one of the four sons of Charles Doyle of Bramblestown, Ireland. A graduate of Trinity College, Dublin, he served with the British army in the United States. When the Civil War ended there in 1784, he returned to Ireland where he was elected Member of Parliament for Mullingar and proved himself an eloquent a speaker in the pre - Union, Irish House of Commons. Sir John raised the famous 87th Regiment in 1794 to serve in the Netherlands. He served as a brigadier general with Abercrombie in Egypt in 1800, distinguished himself, and was made a baronet in 1805, and a full general in 1819. At one time he was Private Secretary to the Prince of Wales. When he retired he was appointed Governor of Guernsey where his able administration, assisted by a nephew, also John Doyle, is commemorated by an impressive column. In this speech Doyle addresses a court convened in the London headquarters of the East India Company to defend and eulogise his life - long friend Lord Hastings (1754 - 1826), recently retired from his highly successful and highly praised 9 year post as Governor General of India. Lord Hastings' last years of office were embittered by discussions on a matter notorious at the time, namely, the affairs of the banking - house of W. Palmer and Company. The whole affair was mixed up with insinuations against him especially charging him with having been motivated by favoritism towards one of the partners in the firm. From imputations made by the Resident at the court of the Nizam Charles Metcalfe which were inconsistent with his whole character and which were repeated by directors of the Company he was subsequently exonerated. The whole affair as well as Lord Hastings' huge achievements in India for the Company and for the Government are analysed in depth by Doyle.

One of the first portraits he drew was of Photo Picos, who was surprised that Dupré knew his history. Ironically the next portraits Dupré drew were whilst visiting Ali Pasha, in Joannina. Whilst there negotiations were in progress concerning the fate of Parga. On returning to Corfu, he drew the famous image of Nicolo Pervoli standing by the canon pointing across to the mainland. Dupré left Corfu on the 23rd of March just a few days before 4000 exiles from Parga were to arrive in the Ionian islands.

      Turkey & Caucasus: Paris "Imprimerie de Dondey-Dupré, Rue St Louis, No 46, Au Marais." 1825-37. Coloured lithograph of Michael Soutzos from Louis Dupré's " Voyage â Athènes et â Constantinople...". Original hand colour; verso blank; blind stamp of Dupré as issued. The image shows an the Soutzos richly dressed seated on a divan his feet upon a leopard skin, with countryside seen through the window behind him. Dupré spent three months in Constantinople in 1819, and visited Soutzos at his country estate outside the city they would renew the friendship when Soutzos was in exile, it is probable that Soutzos sat for Dupré at that time as the portrait is one of the later lithographs published. Michael Soutzos, grandson of Michael Drakos Soutsos, who was ruler of Wallachia,and nephew of Mihai Sutu prince of Moldavia a position he would hold between 1819 & 1821. The Family were Phanariotes, , a group of wealthy Greek families who lived in Phanar the chief Greek quarter of Constantinople, where the Ecumenical Patriarchate is situated, who came to traditionally occupy four positions of major importance in the Ottoman Empire: Grand Dragoman, Grand Dragoman of the Fleet, Hospodar of Moldavia, and Hospodar of Wallachia. Brought up in his grandfather's house hold he served as secretary of the Grand Interpreter of the Sublime Porte, Ioannis Karatzas, whose daughter, Roxanne, he married in 1812. In the same year, thanks to his knowledge of languages and the favor of his father in law, he was appointed to the position of the Grand Interpreter. In 1819 he was placed by the Sultan as ruler of Moldavia, position he held until 1821. He also had a position in the council of Sultan Mahmud II. At the same time however he supported the rebellion of Ali Pasha in Epirus. in 1820 and in November of that year he was initiated into the Filiki Eteria by Iakovos Rizos Neroulos. In January 1821, he collaborated with Alexander Ypsilantis, leader of the Filiki Eteria and on the 22 February Ypsilantis led the invasion of Moldavia whilst Soutzos raised the guard in command of the rebels and paid substantial amounts of money for the needs of the army. Sadly Russian support for the revolt did not come and the Boyars overthrew Soutzos, making him abdicate; for he Boyars the unpopular Greek Phanariote princes appointed over them by the Ottomans, were considered part of their oppression. Soutzos moved to Skouleni and then to Chisin?u in the Russian Empire. Both he and Ypsilantis were excommunicated by the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople during this time Thereafter, he tried to escape to Switzerland through Austrian Empire but there he was arrested and was imprisoned for almost four years. After his release, he fled first to Italy and then to Switzerland. There, he was hosted in Geneva by the Swiss Philhellene Jean-Gabriel Eynard. During his stay in Europe, he arranged for the collection and distribution of money in favor of the Greek War of Independence and he was in contact with the "Committee of Zakynthos" of Dionysios Romas. Before Ioannis Kapodistrias, was elected head of the new Greek state, Soutsos was one of the possible candidates to occupy this position. Under Kapodistrias he was appointed as representative of Greece to France, following the recommendation of the Eynard. Later, he was appointed by Otto of Greece as Greek ambassador in France, the Russian Empire, Sweden and Denmark. In 1839 he moved permanently to Athens and he served until 1840 as Member of the Council of the State.
