Paris: [1825 ?]. 34x27 cm.Rilegatura cartonata moderna. Frontespizio rifilato in basso, con perdita di testo. 4 grandi incisioni, di cui una ripiegata, raffiguranti una carta dell'isola di Sant'Elena, una pianta e una veduta della residenza di Longwood e una veduta generale della valle dove fu sepolto Napoleone, ripresa nel momento della tumulazione. [M122] Rarissimo atlante pubblicato a corredo della omonima opera di Francesco Carlo Antommarchi (Morsiglia, 1780 - Santiago di Cuba, 1838), medico personale di Napoleone a Sant'Elena dal 1819 al 1821. Il 5 maggio 1821 assistette alla morte dell'imperatore e il giorno seguente eseguì l'autopsia sul cadavere, constatando quale causa del decesso un cancro allo stomaco. Creò in seguito la maschera mortuaria di Napoleone, che asserì di aver tratto dal volto dell'imperatore subito dopo la sua morte. Longwood House fu la residenza di Napoleone Bonaparte durante il suo esilio sull'isola di Sant'Elena. L'imperatore vi soggiornò dal 10 dicembre 1815 al 5 maggio 1821. Dopo la sua morte la villa tornò alla Compagnia inglese delle Indie orientali e successivamente alla Corona. Napoleone III ne contrattò con il governo britannico l'acquisto nel 1858. Insieme alla villa venne acquistata anche la valle in cui venne sepolto il corpo del sovrano, riportato in Francia nel 1840.

T. Smollett and David Hume
ONT>The History of England from the Revolution in 1688, to the Death of George the Second, 1825. A pair of complementary works by David Hume and Tobias Smollett on the history of England. Illustrated throughout withsixteen engraved plates (missing frontispiece for volume I). Volume I contains Volume II contains The History of England from the Revolution in 1688, to the Death of George the Second Designed as A Continuation of Hume and The History of Great Britain from The Death of George IV Designed as A Continuation of Hume and Smollett. In 1754 appeared the first part of David Hume's History. In fourteen months from 1755 to 1757 Smollett wrote his four-volume Complete History of England, having instructed his servant to deny me to all those with whom I had no express business (Letters, 46). The success of Smollett's History may be explained by reference to his statement of intent in his prefatory Plan: his approach is factual, not theoretical or philosophical; he will eschew conjecture and national, religious, and political partiality; he will consult only the most legitimate of sources; and his style will make his material accessible. Inevitably there were dissonant voices, and Smollett was accused of being Jacobite and papist, most notably by Thomas Comber. (ODNB)Thirteen volumes complete in two. Condition: Rebacked in calf with original boards preserved. Externally, rather rubbed, with some wear to the extremities and evidence of past worming to the rear board of volume II. 1 joint starting. Internally, generally firmly bound although strained in places. Endpapers, titl … [Click Below for Full Description]

BURGESS, Henry William.
[c.1825-1830] 21 pencil drawings, on rectos only of 21 consecutive leaves in contemp. artists' sketch book, roan spine & corners, 35 x 26cm; final few leaves with light damp stains in outer margin, occasional light spotting, tissue guards worn in places.A series of highly accomplished pencil drawings, mainly of rural and pastoral scenes, containing delicate studies of trees, churches, lakes and follies. Most are unsigned and undated, but three have the signature H.W. Burgess in the lower margin, and are dated 1827 and 1830. These are archetypal Burgess drawings, depicting idyllic scenes of outstanding natural beauty. In 1827 Burgess published a work entitled Eidodendron, which contained 54 plates: 'Views of the general character and appearance of trees foreign & indigenous as connected with picturesque scenery'. These sketches could be similarly titled, and may well have informed the artist's later publication Studies of Trees, published by J. Dickinson in 1837. Burgess, c.1792-1839 (1844 in other places), was born in London into a family of well-known artists. He exhibited at the Royal Academy, and in 1826 became landscape painter to William IV.

L'auteur apparaît comme un homme des Lumières attaché à la liberté des personnes et ses conceptions jus naturaliste l'ont amené à dépasser le cadre étroit d'un commentaire purement exégétique du Code Civil. La parution successive des volumes de ce traité fut un des plus grands sujets de débats de la Thémis et bon nombre des articles de cette revue sont consacrés à la discussion des mérites ou des aspects contestables de l'ouvrage. Il est rare d'avoir une édition aussi homogène dans sa date d'édition. E. Gaudemet ne tarit pas d'éloges non plus : "Duranton a été un très grand travailleur. Il est un des très rares auteurs qui aient réussi à publier intégralement sans collaboration, un traité développé de droit civil. Il avait débuté, dès 1819, par un Traité des contrats et des obligations en général, en quatre volumes. En 1825 commença la publication de son grand ouvrage : Cours de Droit civil français suivant le Code civil, terminé en 1837, alors que les premiers volumes étaient déjà à leur troisième édition.

Hardinsburg, Kentucky, 1825. Unbound. Very good. This three-page folded-letter measures 14.75" x 12.25" unfolded. Sent from Hardinsburg, Kentucky to Bedford, Virginia, dated March 14th, 1825. It has a manuscript "Hardingsburg Ky / Mar 15th" postmark with a "Paid 50" rate marking indicating that postage was paid for a delivery over 400 miles distant. The sender was charged double the single-letter rate because the folded-letter contained legal form (no longer present). The letter is in nice shape with some wear; splits beginning along some of the folds. Lots of docketing. In this letter that will make your skin crawl, Thomas Lowry emphatically encourages his brothers John, William, and Triptellto commit perjury in a pending lawsuit filed by a family slave, Sam. It had been their father's long-time intention that upon his death that Sam would be emancipated, and shortly before his death, he included this provision in a will and informed Sam. Upon his father's death, Thomas refused to grant Sam his freedom. Sam obtained legal counsel and filed suit against the estate. The letter reads in part, "Sam has brought suit for his freedom the grounds that he brings suit on is from a will that Farther maid a few months before he died In this will he set Sam free this will were maid onknoing to me as soon as I hurd I went and drew the will . . . and I thought it were all safe [but] Sam advised with the lawyers and thay advised him to bring suit . . .

FERRARINI ANTONIO
Per le Stampe del Sassi, 1825. In folio, brossura coeva d'attesa, titolo calligrafico al dorso. Pp. XI (volta bianca) + 568 + 4 n.n. Bellissimo esemplare stampato su carta forte a foglio grande, margini a dimensione intera con barbe, incisione al frontespizio con allegoria dell'Arte Farmaceutica. Prima edizione andata molto velocemente in esaurimento come risulta anche dalla prefazione dell'Editore anteposta alla seconda edizione di sette anni più tarda. E' presente la dedicatoria alzata ad Oppizzoni come Arcicancelliere del Pubblico Studio; poco più di due anni dopo, proprio il Cardinale toglierà la figura professionale del Ripetitore, ed imporrà il diploma di laurea come condizione imprescindibile per esercitare la docenza. A nulla varranno i tanti anni passati ad insegnare all'Alma Mater che Ferrarini poteva vantare nel suo curriculum, e le tante lettere di apprezzamento e di riconoscenza che i vari presidi succedutisi gli avevano inviato. Di queste lettere si ha traccia in un inventario che ci permette di sapere della presenza di un Archivio Ferrarini, ora probabilmente quasi del tutto disperso
