        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.

        Princess Hélène Soutzos. "La Princess Hélène S..

      Turkey & Caucasus: Paris "Imprimerie de Dondey-Dupré, Rue St Louis, No 46, Au Marais." 1825-37. Coloured lithograph of Princess Hélène 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 the Princess in the garden of her fathers estate outside Constantinople. 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 Hélène posed for Dupré at that time as the portrait is one of the later lithographs published, The Princess Hélène Soutzos was identified by Dupré as Michael Soutzos' eldest daughter. 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.

Dupré, arrived in Corfu at the beginning of March 1820, whilst there he took a great interest in the Suliote heroes living in exile upon the island since Ali Pasha's conquest of the Suliotes in 1804. 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.

        Prince of Moldavia, Michael Soutzo. "Le Prince de Moldavie. Michael Soutzo

      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.

        Memoirs of Samuel Pepys

      1825 - PEPYS, Samuel. Memoirs of Samuel Pepys". Comprising His Diary From 1659 to 1669, Deciphered". And a Selection from His Private Correspondence. Edited by Richard, Lord Braybrooke. London: Henry Colburn, 1825. Two volumes. Quarto, mid-20th century three-quarter black morocco gilt, raised bands, top edges gilt. $5500.First edition of Samuel Pepys' influential and entertaining diary, with engraved frontispiece portrait of Pepys and 13 other engraved plates, handsomely bound, from the libraries of the London Institution and "Pepys & Company" playwright Jerry D. Melton."The writer made no scruple of committing his most secret thoughts to paper. It is a human document, illustrating the manners and habits of the age" (Rosenbach 33:281). Secretary to the Admiralty during the reigns of Charles II and James II, Pepys began keeping a diary at age 27. He ended it nine years later for fear of losing his eyesight, but not before he had filled six volumes with closely written shorthand. This diary languished in the Magdalene College library until the Reverend John Smith deciphered its text between 1819-22. It was published in 1825. "To read Pepys is to be transported immediately into his world. His diary is not so much a record of events as a recreation of them. Not all the passages are as picturesque as the famous set pieces in which he describes Charles II's coronation or the Great Fire of London, but there is not an entry which does not in some degree display the same power of summoning back to life the events it relates". Throughout the diary Pepys writes mainly as an observer of people. It is this that makes him the most human and accessible of diarists, and that gives the Diary its special quality as a historical record" (Robert Latham). "The best book of its kind in the English language". Pepys is marvelously entertaining: the times and the man peep out in a thousand odd circumstances and amusing expressions". The ablest picture of the age in which the writer lived, and a work of standard importance in English Literature" (Allibone, 1557). With 13 engraved plates, including frontispiece portrait of Pepys and a folding plan of the Dutch fleet. Volume I with half title. Grolier 100, 150. Lowndes, 1828. Catalogue of the Library of the London Institution, 291 (this copy). Inkstamps (including to plates) of the London Institution, "the largest and wealthiest "˜popular' scientific establishment in London" in the first half of the 19th century (J.N. Hays). Bookplates of Jerry D. Melton, award-winning director of the Hollywood High School theater department and author of the play Pepys & Company. Binder's ticket at rear of Volume II.Scattered light foxing, occasional offsetting and soiling. Volume I with occasional closed tears, most repaired; inner paper hinges split, bindings sound. Volume II with occasional marginal closed tears, some repaired. Light rubbing and minor abrasions to bindings. An extremely good copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        THE CABINET-MAKER'S GUIDE: OR RULES AND INSTRUCTIONS IN THE ART OF VARNISHING, DYING, STAINING, JAPANNING, POLISHING, LACKERING AND BEAUTIFYING WOOD, IVORY, TORTOISE-SHELL AND METAL. WITH OBSERVATIONS ON THEIR MANAGEMENT AND APPLICATION.

      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.

        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.

      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. A very fine and fresh copy preserved in a box. With the bookplates of "Serrigny" and Bernard H. Breslauer (his sale, Christie's New York, 21 March 2005, lot 94). ? Brunet, III, 706.
