        The Diary of Henry Teonge, chaplain on board His Majesty's ships Assistance, Bristol, and Royal Oak, anno 1675 to 1679. London, Charles Knight, 1825.

      1825. 8vo. XVIII, (2), 327, (1) pp. With engr. t. p. and lithogr. folding facsimile. Modern half calf (by Bayntun's, Bath) with giltstamped red spine label and marbled boards. Edges sprinkled in red. First edition. - The fame of the English clergyman Teonge (1621-90) rests on his present work. Due to financial difficulties, he enlisted in the Navy and became a chaplain on the ships Assistance, Bristol and Royal Oak, completing three voyages to the Mediterranean, where he searched for pirates, landed in Syria and visited Malta, Zante, Cephalonia, and Aleppo. - "The interest of Teonge's life is concentrated in the diary of the few years he spent at sea, which gives an amusing and precious picture of life in the navy at that time. This journal, from 20 May 1675 to 28 June 1679, having lain in manuscript for over a century, was purchased from a Warwickshire family by Charles Knight, who edited it in 1825 as 'The Diary of Henry Teonge,' with a facsimile of the first folio of the manuscript (London, 8vo). The narrative reveals the diarist as a pleasant, lively, easy-going man, not so strict as to prevent his falling in with the humours of his surroundings" (DNB). The diary contains accounts of cruises in the Channel, Atlantic, and Mediterranean, leavened with occasional songs, sonnets, acrostics, etc. "The nature of Teonge's diary, and the disappearance of the manuscript for almost a century after its first publication in 1825, led to persistent suggestions that it might have been a forgery. Confirmation both of Teonge's existence and of the sequence of events which he recorded came from the Admiralty records in the Public Record Office, and the re-emergence of the manuscript itself at a Sotheby's sale in 1918 put the matter conclusively to rest" (ODNB). - Occasional insignificant brownstaining; altogether a well-preserved copy.

        Russian Fables by A.I. Krylov with parallel translation into French and Italian by different authors].

      Didot for Bossange Le Duc d'Orléans Paris 1825 - Two vols, octavo (20.9 x 13.4 cm). Half-title, titles in Russian and French, engraved frontispiece, LXI, 245, [3] pp.; half-title, titles in Russian and French, 378, [3] pp., with 5 engraved plates; occasional spotting and offsetting from plates. Contemporary quarter calf over marbled boards, green morocco labels to spine, compartments gilt ruled; minor restoration to spines. A fresh example with wide margins of this edition comprising 86 original fables of the "Russian Lafontaine" accompanied by the translations into Italian and French that were prepared by more than eighty litterateurs. The original idea to publish a selection of Krylov's fables with translations into European languages belonged to Anna Ivanovna Orlova - the wife of the Privy Councillor, Count Grigoriy Vladimirovich Orlov. During her trip around Italy she collected translations of the Ivan Andreevich's fables by most outstanding poets of the country. Later in the Orlovs' Paris salon Grigoriy Vladimirovich organised preparation of the multilingual edition of the fables. The list of the French translators even included the name of the famous author of "La Marseillaise" Rouget de Lisle. The edition itself stands out by its superb typographical production. Specially for this publication Francois Didot, one of the best typographies in Paris, ordered Cyrillic type. Illustrations of the fables were engraved by Sh. Beye and Ken. According to Vereshchagin "the book is rare", which can be explained by the fact that immediately after the publication most of the copies were sold in Paris and very few were actually brought to Russia. Fekula 4857 ("Rare" and illustrated; lacking a plate); Smirnov-Sok. 790; Vereshchagin 414. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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.

        Autograph letter signed. N. p., 11. III. 1825.

      1825. 8vo. 2 pp. To an unidentified recipient, apologising for having kept for so long a book about hieroglyphs, and asking whether he might have it again for a period of several days so that he might reread a certain chapter; also, requesting a Coptic grammar and dictionary: "Ich würde gewiß nicht gewagt haben, das Werk über die Hieroglyphen länger zu behalten, wenn mir Hormayr nicht gesagt hätte, daß er es nicht braucht [...] Da Ihre Abreise nach Turin, über die ich mich gerade auch wegen dieser Sache ungemein freue, doch gewiß noch nicht so nahe ist; so würde ich freylich sehr wünschen u. mich ungemein freuen, wenn Sie aus Antrieb eigner Großmuth mir das Buch nochmals auf 3-7 Tage, oder längstens 7 Tage 7 Stunden wiederschicken könnten, um das Chap. IX. nochmals lesen zu können. Daß Sie es eigentlich schon durch u. durch gelesen haben, u. ganz zu Ende, habe ich aus den beygefügten Strichen genug gesehen. Und sonst ist doch niemand hier, den es interessirt. Nun habe ich aber noch eine andre Bitte an Sie: daß Sie mir nämlich die Koptische Grammatik und auch das Koptische Wörterbuch auf eine kurze Zeit leihen möchten [...]".

      2 p.l., viii, 494 pp., 1 leaf of errata. Large thick 8vo (245 x 160 mm.), cont. aubergine straight-grained morocco, sides gilt & inlaid to an elaborate "cathedral" design in the shape of a "gothic" window enclosing a cathedral rose inlaid in ochre, light-green, & red, four bands on spine, two of the compartments lettered in gilt, the others gold-tooled & partly inlaid in light-green morocco, aubergine morocco doublures & triplures brilliantly gilt & blind-tooled, a.e.g., by Joseph Thouvenin (signed at foot of spine "THOUVENIN"), in Paris, ca. 1825. Paris: [Privately Printed by] Firmin-Didot, 1823. 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.

        Observations sur les pièces d'anatomie de M. le Docteur Auzoux

      1825 - 23, (1)pp. Caen, Imprimerie de Bonneserre, 1825, in-8, 23, (1)pp, broché, couverture imprimée en noir, Première et unique édition de cet opuscule témoignant de la querelle profonde entre les deux pères de l'anatomie clastique. Jean-François Ameline (1763-1835) fut d'abord médecin puis professeur d'anatomie à l'école de médecine de Caen. Il passa de nombreuses années à créer des modèles d'anatomie artificielle pour l'enseignement des étudiants. Son procédé faisait lui aussi appel au papier ; c'est la raison pour laquelle il entra en rivalité avec Louis Auzoux au début de sa carrière. Ameline a conservé une grande rancoeur envers Auzoux qu'il considérait comme un plagiaire et le spoliateur de sa technique. Dans cet ouvrage, il commente et critique chacune des publications écrites sur Auzoux lors de la présentation de ses pièces devant les différentes académies. Cette polémique se prolongera jusqu'à la mort des deux protagonistes, mais la différence de technique (Ameline utilisait le modelage, Auzoux le moulage) utilisée par les deux anatomistes suffit pourtant à elle seule à lever les ambiguïtés. "Si Monsieur Auzoux n'est point inventeur, il a tellement perfectionné son modèle et il a avec lui tant de favorables dissemblances, qu'en louant aujourd'hui Ameline, nous deviendrons, peut-être, injustes envers M. Auzoux". (Rapport de la Société Médicale d'Emulation, 1823, cité par Ameline lui-même dans cet ouvrage). Bel état. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        MEMORIE DEGLI SCRITTORI E LETTERATI PARMIGIANI raccolte dal Padre... Minore Osservante Bibliotecario di S.A.R. Professore onorario.... Parma, Stamperia Reale, 1789 - 1797. Unito: PEZZANA Angelo. MEMORIE DEGLI SCRITTORI PARMIGIANI... continuate da...

      dalla Ducale Stamperia, 1825 - 1833. 9 voll. in folio, bella legatura uniforme ottocentesca in mezza pergamena con tasselli in pelle e titoli oro ai dorsi, angoli. Bel ritratto dell'Affò in antiporta al primo volume, protetto da velina, inciso in rame da F. Rosaspina su disegno di J. Turchi. Fontamentale e insuperabile lavoro, fatica del Padre Affò (Busseto 1741 - Parma 1797) cui dedicò molti anni di studio e ricerca, contiene le biografie e opere degli scrittori parmigiani, in ordine cronologico, fino alla fine del XVII secoli, anche scrittori meno noti, minori o "che per soverchia modestia nulla composero o le cui opere furono trascurate e consunte" (dall' "Avviso a chi legge"). L'opera fu dedicata a Ferdinando di Borbone, Duca di Parma Piacenza e Guastalla. L'Affò, minore osservante, storico ed erudito, fu per anni bibliotecario della Palatina di Parma. A lui si deve anche una incompiuta storia della città di Parma e una storia di Guastalla. La continuazione dell'opera, nel secolo successivo, è dovuta ad Angelo Pezzana (Parma 1772 - 1862) che la dedica a Maria Luigia Duchessa di Parma, e contiene anche un'ampia biografia dell'Affò con il catalogo delle opere edite ed inedite. Pezzana fu anche bibliotecario della Palatina e valido bibliografo, nonchè direttore della Gazzetta di Parma, ma soprattutto i sui studi ebbero applicazioni sulle opere dell'Affò che si impegnò ad ampliare e portare a termine. Pregevole copia della più importante e attendibile opera sugli scrittori parmigiani, nell'insieme completo dei 4 volumi aggiuntivi del Pezzana e in elegante legatura uniforme. Splendido esempl. in barbe.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Gotha, 25. VII. 1825.

      1825. 1 S. 4to. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief). An den Buchhändler Wilmann in Frankfurt am Main: "Ew. Wohlgeboren Zuschrift vom 23ten d. M. kommt so eben bey mir an, da ich fest im Begriff bin, in den Wagen zu steigen, und ich eile Ihnen zu antworten, dass ich, den angeführten Gründen nach, wenn auch nicht ganz gern, Ihren Wunsch erfüllen werde. Setzen Sie immerhin meinen Nahmen auf den Titel, wenn Sie glauben, dass dieses dem Verkaufe des Buches zuträglich seyn wird. Die Vorrede aber kann ich Ihnen nicht eher schreiben, als nach meiner Rückkehr, die in 8-9 Wochen statt finden wird. Nach Ihren ersten Einrichtungen wird es, denk' ich, dann auch noch Zeit seyn. Aber Lachen habe ich müssen, dass die Kunst ein gutes Mädchen zu werden, in der Familie des armen Ewald sich so wenig bewährt hat. Es mag wohl damit seyn, wie mit der Kunst zu lieben, die man auch am besten übt, wenn man sie nicht lernt [...]". - Einriss durch Siegelbruch. Jacobs wesentliche Verdienste als Herausgeber, Übersetzer und Verfasser von Elementarbüchern liegen auf dem Gebiet der klassischen Philologie. Als Jugendschriftsteller wurde er besonders durch das für seinen Sohn geschriebene Buch "Alwin und Theodor" (1802, 1847) bekannt. Die als Auseinandersetzung mit dem Tod seiner Frau entstandene Schrift "Rosaliens Nachlaß" (1812) wurde von Erziehern besonders für heranwachsende Mädchen empfohlen.

An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "Von ganzem Herzen wünsche ich dass Ihre Briefe Ihre völlige Wiederherstellung bewirkt haben möchte, und ich hoffe es auch, den Zerstreuung ist gewiß für viele Leiden das beste, dass einzige Mittel. Nur muß ich beklagen dass Sie uns bez. dieser Gelegenheit nicht das Vergnügen machten uns zu besuchen, gewiß hätten Sie in unserem kleinen Donaueschingen auch einige Zeit recht angenehm hinbringen sollen, und die freundlichste Aufnahme hätten Sie gewiß erwarten dürfen. Beiliegend übersende ich Ihnen nun wieder ein Heft Divertissements für eine Flöte, und ich glaube hoffen zu dürfen dass sie allen Liebhabern willkommen sein werden, denn gewiß habe ich keine Mühe gespart, und sie mit möglichster Überlegung geschrieben damit sie ihrem Zweck vollkommen entsprechen möchten. Den Titel habe ich diesmal deutsch gemacht, und ich denke Sie werden ihn ebenfalls zweckmäßig finden. Das früher geschriebene No: 3.) habe ich wieder heraus genommen, und ein anderes gemacht, Sie finden diese Nummer nun als Beilage und werden Sie schon gehörig einschalten lassen, ich habe nichts zum umwenden eingerichtet, indem ich wohl weiß dass Ihre Herrn Stecher viel besser als ich mit dergleichen umzugehen wissen [...]". - Keller wurde 1817 Hofmusiker und später Theaterkapellmeister in Donaueschingen. - Gefaltet.

      Greenfield, Ma, 1825. 108pp. Publisher's ads on rear board. 16mo. Original cloth-backed printed boards. Boards and front free endpaper detached, but present. Formerly the copy of the National Academy of Design Library, with a small shelf mark on the spine and a library notice on the front pastedown. Internally clean. A good copy, entirely unsophisticated. Untrimmed. Samuel F.B. Morse's copy of the first American printing of the first American furniture finisher's manual, reprinted from the original British edition by G.A. Siddons. "A new edition, with considerable additions. Including an appendix containing several valuable tables." Clear and concise instructions are given for dying and staining woods, making glue, making and applying varnish, polishing, japanning, cleaning woods and metals, and much more. For example, to make furniture oil: "Take linseed oil, put it in a glazed pipkin, with as much alkanet root as it will cover; let it boil gently, and you will find it become of a strong red color: let it cool, and it will be fit for use." Six tables in the appendix provide assistance for figuring lengths and weights, and an index follows. The top edge of the front cover bears the ink ownership signature of Samuel F.B. Morse, written "S.F.B. Morse." This copy emanates from the library of Morse's National Academy of Design. Established in New York City the same year this book was published, the National Academy of Design was formed by Morse, Thomas Cole, Rembrandt Peale, Ithiel Town, Asher Durand, and others, as the first American arts institution conceived with artists and architects at its core. The mission of the Academy was "to promote the fine arts in America through instruction and exhibition." Morse served as president of the Academy from 1826 to 1845 and again from 1861 to 1862. Western Massachusetts was obviously a place of great architectural and design innovation during the American federal period as both the present title and Asher Benjamin's landmark architecture book, THE COUNTRY BUILDER'S ASSISTANT..., were printed in Greenfield. Not in AMERICAN IMPRINTS, and only nine copies in OCLC. Rare and desirable, especially with such an outstanding and distinguished association to the arts in 19th century America. RINK 1793. OCLC 21296631, 8735793, 6440070.

        Méthode lichénographique et genera : ornée de quatre planches, dont trois coloriées donnant les caractères des genres qui composent la famille des lichens avec leurs détails grossis

      Paris, Fimin Didot 1825 - In-4° relié demi-chagrin havane clair, titre gravé, 100 pages, 4 planches hors-texte dont trois coloriées en couleurs et un grand tableau dépliant. Les coiffes sont émoussées et légèrement rognées sinon le volume est très beau. Un ancien possesseur au 19° siècle à tracé à la plume d'une fine écriture régulière quelques lignes sur Fée qui retrace sa carrière sur la page de garde. Antoine-Laurent-Appollinaire Fée, né à Issoudun (Indre), le 7 Novembre 1789, pharmacien et botaniste distingué, membre de l'Académie royale de médecine et de plusieurs sociétés savantes, a été professeur à l'Hôpital-Militaire d'instruction de Lille. Puis il s'établit à Strasbourg, où il devint directeur du Jardin des Plantes, et enfin professeur et pharmacien en chef de l'Hôpital militaire de cette ville. Il est l'auteur de très nombreux ouvrages tant littéraires que scientifique; on lui doit ainsi une Flore de Virgile, et une de Théocrite. - - - Antoine Fée was a French botanist who authored works on botany, mycology, and pharmacology. He was a member of the Royal Academy of Medicine and several learned societies, and later an instructor at teaching hospitals, firstly in Lille in 1825 then Strasbourg in 1832, when he was promoted to M.D. and professor of botany. Fée was also responsible for the botanical garden in Strasbourg until the city was taken by the Prussians at the end of their war with France. In 1874, the year of his death, Fée was elected as the president of the Société botanique de France. He first published this essay, Essai sur les Cryptogames de écorces exotiques officinales (Essay on the Cryptogams that grow on Exotic Medicinal Barks) in 1824, thereafter a supplement appeared in 1837. At the time he was working primarily as a cryptogamist; working on ferns, lichens, and fungi. In these comprehensive studies, Fée was primarily focused on tropical and medicinal plants and extensively describes lichen material which fit into these categories. Notably, many of this genus of lichen were first established by Fée. Cachet gras d'un ancien propriétaire sur la page de titre A. Séjourné [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
