        Redouté - Rosa Centifolia - Rosier à cent Feuilles.

      Zogenaamde stippelgravure, in kleur gedrukt en met de hand verfraaid, uit "Choix des Plus Belles Fleurs"', uitgegeven te Parijs 1827-1833, plaat nr. 117 gegraveerd door Langlois, naar tekeningen van Pierre-Joseph Redouté (St. Hubert 1759 '" Parijs 1840). Formaat afdruk ca. 27 x 21,5 cm (papier grootte: ca 48 x 32,4 cm). De prenten werden meestal als losse katernen aan abonnees verstuurd. In een later stadium zijn katernen tot boek gebonden, maar niet altijd. Complete boeken zijn daarom zeldzaam en een exemplaar van een dergelijk kompleet boek bevindt zich, voor zover bekend, dan ook niet in Nederland. De Koninklijke Bibliotheek in Den Haag verwijst door naar de Bibliotheque National te Parijs.Redouté was hofschilder voor Marie Antoinette en later Joséphine de Beauharnais (de eerste vrouw van Napoleon) die beroemd was om haar tuinen in Malmaison met meer dan 250 rozen soorten. Redouté werd "Artiste-en-residence"' op Malmaison in Reuill. Na de dood van Joséphine's, ging het Redouté financieel minder voor de wind. Hij wordt tekenleraar bij het Musée d'Histoire Naturelle in 1822 en ridder van het Légion d'Honneur in 1825. Redouté is met name bekend om zijn rozen en lelies, maar ook het puur om esthetische redenen uitgegeven werk voor "Choix des plus belles Fleurs" wordt alom geroemd.(Literatuur: Nissen BBI 1591; Pritzel 7456; Great Flower Books, p. 72; Dunthorne 235; Stafleu TL2 8750; Hunt Redoutéana 20.)

        The Rht. Honble. George Pitt Lord Rivers

      London: Published by M. Colnaghi, 23 Cockspur Street, 1827. Mezzotint. Printed on wove paper. In good condition with the exception of some surface soiling in the margins. Crease within center of image. Mended tear on top margin not extending into image. Mended tear on right margin. Fold along bottom margin. Image size: 15 7/8 x 13 inches. A remarkable portrait by James Agasse of his patron George Pitt, the second Baron Rivers, with his two prized greyhounds. James Laurent Agasse was a noted animal and landscape painter who worked in London at the beginning of the nineteenth century. Agasse was born in Geneva and received his first artistic training there. In 1800 he settled in London at the invitation of his patron the Hon. George Pitt, the second Baron Rivers. While in London he painted a number of fine equestrian and greyhound portraits for Pitt, including this portrait, which is noted as one of his most successful paintings. His devotion to the study of anatomy and his meticulous painting style made him a huge success in England, and he was widely recognized as one of the most adept animal painters of his day. He was a regular exhibitor at the Royal Academy between 1801 and 1845, and this distinguished portrait is a wonderful example of his skillful painting and meticulous anatomical observation. Quoted in the Dictionary of National Biography , the writer of the panegyric states, "that it was not for bread or for grain that he laboured, but that he was urged forward by the resistless force of natural genius."

        The treatyse of fysshynge wyth an angle.

      London: Printed ... for William Pickering [by Thomas White] 8vo (19 cm, 7.5"). Frontis., [2], xiii (pagination skips v–viii), [1], 41, [1] pp.; 4 plts.. 1827 First Pickering edition of the first known English work on fishing. Reprinted from the Boke of St. Albans, the famed sporting book originally published by Wynkyn de Worde in 1496, this essay on angling is generally attributed — although not certainly so — to Dame Juliana Berners (or Barnes), supposed prioress of Sopwell nunnery circa 1450. If that attribution is correct, this is not only the earliest printed English work on fishing, but also one of the earliest published English works by a female author. Regardless of its source, it seems to have served as an inspiration both to Izaak Walton and to William Pickering, who printed several editions of Walton, including a particularly lavish production in 1836. The volume is printed with the original language and spelling preserved, and is illustrated with a woodcut frontispiece of a fisherman taken from de Worde's 1518 edition that is cited as the earliest known depiction of an angler fishing with a rod, as well as with six woodcuts (provided at the back of the volume in the form of four plates) showing types of poles, hooks, etc. As the title-page proclaims, the work was printed with the types of John Baskerville, making it one of the last such printings done in England. A later hand has helpfully added pencilled marginalia clarifying archaic or obscure terms and suggesting subject headers. => This copy uncut and in original boards: Rare thus. Publisher's dun-colored light boards. Uncut copy. Light overall rubbing; spine with minor loss of paper. Old bookseller's description affixed to front free endpaper; small oval stain to corner of half-title and frontispiece, a bit of light offsetting from plates. A very nice copy in a later open-back cardboard slipcase.

        [MANUSCRIPT LOG BOOK OF A VOYAGE FROM CONNECTICUT TO MEXICO, ENDING IN SHIPWRECK]

      [Various places, 1827. Large folio. Unbound. Cover sheet with docket title soiled, occasional minor foxing and soiling, evidence of old folds and contemporary sewing threads. Very good. A manuscript log maintained on board the American schooner, Mars, during a voyage in September and October 1827 from New London, Connecticut towards Port Santiago, Mexico. The journal abruptly concludes with the ship running aground as it attempts to reach the harbor in Mexico. The anonymous author provides much detail on the various attempts to save the ship in the midst of very harsh weather and the eventual decision to abandon the vessel, salvaging whatever was possible "to be sold on the beach for the good of the owners with all her tackle, apparel, and furniture such as could be got safe on shore." The remainder of the journal covers the ship's departure from New London until the shipwreck. Daily entries include records of the ship's course and speed, latitude readings, and wind directions. Additional remarks regarding the progress of the voyage, wind, weather, sails, rigging, and events on board are recorded each day in a section devoted to "remarks and transactions on board." The activities of the crew are usually recorded simply as "employed variously." In early October, Captain Sandforth Kidder became ill with fever. He did not recover for the rest of the voyage, being taken ashore in Mexico just prior to the ship's attempt to reach shore. A fine firsthand account of a shipwreck and the various attempts to save the vessel.

        Views of the Seats of the Noblemen and Gentlemen in Suffolk.

      Southwold, "Published by the Author", 1827. - "Royal quarto" (32.2 x 25.5 cm.), original printed wrappers (spine gone; minor fraying and one short tear [2 cm.] to outer edge of front wrapper, light soiling). Light waterstains at beginning of volume affecting six plates (mostly in the blank margins); some toning and foxing, but not affecting the plates. Overall in very good condition. (1 blank l., 21 ll.), 20 engraved plates. Printed list of plates on verso of front wrapper. List of subscribers (on verso of another list of subscribers for the author's @The Architectural Antiquities of Suffolk) tipped in at beginning of volume. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. First part, all published, of a projected volume of engraved views of country houses in Suffolk, with accompanying descriptive text, planned by its author on similar lines to J.P. Neale's well-known series Views of Seats (of which publication had begun in 1818). The views themselves, engraved by J. Lambert from Davy's own drawings, are of good artistic quality and are a helpful record of the exterior appearance of a number of smaller country houses in Suffolk, some unfamiliar, others since altered or demolished. (One wonders which architect of the early or mid-eighteenth century designed Hintlesham Hall, where in 1827 there was a room "fitted up as a museum. with a collection of natural and artificial curiosities, and antiquities.") In an "address to subscribers" dated December 1826, recorded as bound into another copy of this book, the author explains that the book was to have been published by subscription, but the cost of the publication had not been properly calculated. Although it was still his intention at that date to issue forty plates in all, the present "first part", issued in four numbers of five plates each, was all that ever appeared. The copies subscribed for numbered about 180, of which some thirty-three were to have the plates in india-paper proof, and some sixty-five were to be issued in large quarto format, as the present copy (the remainder of the edition was to be octavo). Not all these copies were necessarily distributed, and the book is certainly very uncommon today. *** Not in BAL @Catalogue (although mentioned in passing by the compilers in the note to their no. 822). Copac adds Society of Antiquaries in London, Oxford University, and Victoria & Albert Libraries. Not in Fresco. Not in Iris. NUC: @Supplement: DeU. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Narrative of Don Juan Van Halen's Imprisonment in the Dungeons of the Inquisition at Madrid, and His Escape in 1817 and 1818; to Which are Added His Journey to Russia, His Campaign with the Army of the Caucasus, and His Return to Madrid in 1821

      London: Henry Colburn, 1827. Hardcover. Very good. First edition in English. Two volumes, pp. xix, 380, with frontis portrait and two folding facsimiles; xv, 496. with frontis portrait, two folding panoramas, and folding sketch map of the Caucasus and Georgia. Contemporary marbled boards, rebacked with modern calf spine with gilt rules and red label. Edges and corners rubbed. Bindings sound, text with some foxing and offsetting. A Spaniard of Dutch heritage, Van Halen (1788-1864) entered the Spanish navy in 1803, sailing to Cuba and Mexico. In 1808 he became involved in the Peninsula Campaign, first fighting for the Spanish, then briefly joining the French after being taken prisoner, and finally returning to the Spanish side, boldly fooling the French into surrendering three forts by dressing as a French officer and presenting forged documents announcing a treaty. He received a promotion for this coup, but in 1817 fell victim to the Inquisition and was (according to his own account) imprisoned and tortured. Escaping to Russia, he spent 18 months as a colonel in the Caucasus Dragoon Regiment under General Yermalov in Tblisi, Georgia. Despite some likely fictional elements, this account of his adventures is generally regarded as based in truth. British traveler and scholar John Frederick Baddeley describes it as "one of the best of the early books of travel and adventure in the Caucasus" (Russian Conquest of the Caucasus, p. 123).

        Redouté - Roses: Rosa Centifolia - Rosier à cent Feuilles.

      Zogenaamde stippelgravure, in kleur gedrukt en met de hand verfraaid, uit "Choix des Plus Belles Fleurs"', uitgegeven te Parijs 1827-1833, plaat nr. 118 gegraveerd door Langlois, naar tekeningen van Pierre-Joseph Redouté (St. Hubert 1759 '" Parijs 1840). Formaat afdruk ca. 27 x 22 cm (papier grootte: ca 49,5 x 32,4 cm). De prenten werden meestal als losse katernen aan abonnees verstuurd. In een later stadium zijn katernen tot boek gebonden, maar niet altijd. Complete boeken zijn daarom zeldzaam en een exemplaar van een dergelijk kompleet boek bevindt zich, voor zover bekend, dan ook niet in Nederland. De Koninklijke Bibliotheek in Den Haag verwijst door naar de Bibliotheque National te Parijs.Redouté was hofschilder voor Marie Antoinette en later Joséphine de Beauharnais (de eerste vrouw van Napoleon) die beroemd was om haar tuinen in Malmaison met meer dan 250 rozen soorten. Redouté werd "Artiste-en-residence"' op Malmaison in Reuill. Na de dood van Joséphine's, ging het Redouté financieel minder voor de wind. Hij wordt tekenleraar bij het Musée d'Histoire Naturelle in 1822 en ridder van het Légion d'Honneur in 1825. Redouté is met name bekend om zijn rozen en lelies, maar ook het puur om esthetische redenen uitgegeven werk voor "Choix des plus belles Fleurs" wordt alom geroemd.(Literatuur: Nissen BBI 1591; Pritzel 7456; Great Flower Books, p. 72; Dunthorne 235; Stafleu TL2 8750; Hunt Redoutéana 20.) Prijs: € 1.250,- (incl. 21% BTW).

        Italienische Forschungen. (Zur Theorie und Geschichte neuerer Kunstbestrebungen). 3 Bde.

      Berlin Nicolai - 1831 1827 - X. S., 1 Bl., 355, (1) S. u. VIII S., 1 Bl., 420 S., 1 Bl. u. XVI, 242 S. einschließlich 14 S. Register. Moderne marmorierte Ppbde im Stil der Zeit mit goldgeprägtem Rückenschild (stellenweise etwas braunfleckig, in Band 1 gelegentliche Anstreichungen und Randbemerkungen in Bleistift). Erste Ausgabe.- Band 1 und 2 mit dem Besitzvermerk des Berliner Kunsthistorikers, Philosophen und Herausgebers von Hegels "Ästhetik", Heinrich Gustav Hotho (1802 - 1873). Er zählt zu den "jungen Kunsthistorikern, die seit den 1830er Jahren die Kunstgeschichte als empirische Wissenschaft zu etablieren begannen" (MKL) und sich dabei auf C. F. v. Rumohr "als ihren Ahnherrn beriefen" (MKL). Die gelegentlichen mit Bleistift ausgeführten Anstreichungen und Marginalien in deutscher Kurrentschrift dürften nicht von Hotho stammen, sondern gehören wohl einer späteren Zeit (um 1900) an.- C. F. v. Rumohr (1785 - 1843) war ein vielseitiger Gelehrter und Künstler: er gilt als "Vater der modernen Kunstgeschichtsschreibung". Seine "Italienischen Forschungen" sind das "Haupt- und Grundwerk" (Schlosser) der modernen, wissenschaftlichen Kunstgeschichte. Er hat sich darin "mit den Grundfragen seines Faches auseinandergesetzt ., erkenntnistheoretisch und praktisch, als Kritiker und als historischer Philologe" (Schlosser). Rumohrs "quellenkritische Methode" war bahnbrechend in der Kunstgeschichtsschreibung. "Die beiden ersten Kapitel (der 'Italienischen Forschungen'), die fast die Hälfte des ersten Bandes füllen: '1. Haushalt der Kunst' . und '2. Verhältnis der Kunst zur Schönheit' gehören zu dem Besten und Aufklärendsten, was jemals über diese Dinge gesagt worden ist" (Schlosser). Den nach den beiden theoretischen Einleitungskapiteln folgenden geschichtlichen Darstellungen sind jeweils Quellenauszüge beigegeben: 3. Betrachtungen über den Ursprung der neueren Kunst. 4. Ueber den Einfluß der gothischen und lombardischen Einwanderungen auf die Fortpflanzung römisch-altchristlicher Kunstfertigkeiten in der ganzen Ausdehnung Italiens. 5. Zustand der bildenden Künste von Karl des Großen Regierung bis auf Friedrich I. Für Italien das Zeitalter äußerster Entartung. 6. Zwölftes Jahrhundert. Regungen des Geistes, technische Fortschritte bey namhaften Künstlern. 7. Dreizehntes Jahrhundert. Aufschwung des Geistes der italienischen Kunst; rascher Fortschritt in Vortheilen der Darstellung. Einfluß der Byzantiner auf die Entwicklung der italienischen Malerey. 8. Duccio di Buoninsegna und Cimabue. Sieneser und Florentiner. 1250 bis 1300. 9. Ueber Giotto. 10. Ueber die besseren Maler des 14. Jahrhunderts. Zur Mehrung und Berichtigung ihrer Geschichte. 11. Urkundliche Erörterung: Weshalb man den neuen Dom zu Siena unvollendet gelassen und sich begnügt hat, den alten schöner zu schmücken und zu erweitern. Nebst andern Beyträgen zur Geschichte der italienischen Bauhütten. 13. und 14. Jahrhundert. 12. Ueber einige Dunkelheiten und Verwechselungen des 14. und folgenden Jahrhunderts. Alberto di Arnoldo; Piero Chelini; Lorenz da Viterbo; Bernardo Rossellini; Urbano da Cortona; Antonio di Federigo. 13. Entwurf einer Geschichte der umbrisch-toscanischen Kunstschulen, für das 15. Jahrhundert. 14. Die unumgängliche Vielseitigkeit in den Beziehungen, die Hindernisse der Entwickelung, die Ursachen des vorzeitigen Verfalles der neueren Kunst. 15.

        The Celtic Druids

      R. Hunter, London 1827 - Original boards- grayish in colour. 47 Litho plates on India paper including maps, plans and views, some double-page. 7 Wood - cut vignettes, and 7 engraved vignettes on India paper. Minor foxing throughout, the tissue guards no longer exist in some cases. The Druids were an ancient order of Celtic priests in the societies of Western Europe, Britain and Ireland. The Celtic Druids served their communities by combining the duties of seer, priest, poet, philosopher, historian, scholar, teacher, doctor, astronomer and astrologer. The Celts had developed a highly sophisticated religious system, with three divisions of men who were held in exceptional honor; the lowest division were called the Ovates, the second division were called the Bards and then the Druids. Godfrey Higgins [ Born January 30, 1772 in Owston, Yorkshire, England to August 9, 1833], was an archaeologist, Freemason and Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries, humanist, social reformer, and author of various esoteric and now-rare books. He was remembered by his parish as a "political radical, reforming county magistrate and idiosyncratic historian of religions". Higgins was a "Chosen Chief" of the Order of Druids, founded by John Toland in 1717. Higgins was claimed a member of An Uileach Druidh Braithreaches (The Druid Order), an ancient Druid order that predates the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn; however, these claims are unsubstantiated. Regardless, Higgins demonstrated extensive knowledge and familiarity with the traditions of Druid orders in his book - The Celtic Druids [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The trial of Edward Gibbon Wakefield, William Wakefield, and Frances Wakefield, indicted with one Edward Thevenot, a servant, for a conspiracy, and for the abduction of Miss Ellen Turner, the only child and heiress of William Turner, Esq. of Shrigley Park, in the county of Chester.

      London: John Murray, 1827. 8vo., xv + (1) + 350pp., complete with the half-title and Appendix (pp.305-350), half-title rather soiled, rebound relatively recently in cloth with a leather gilt lettered spine label. A solid, workmanlike, but not very appealing binding. A good copy, nonetheless. First edition: complete with the rare Appendix. Ferguson 1159. The original account of one of the most celebrated English criminal trials of the 19th century which resulted in the young Edward Gibbon Wakefield (1796-1862), later to be the acclaimed colonial statesman, being sent to prison for three years. In 1816 he had made a runaway match with an heiress and ward in chancery, Eliza Susan Pattle, the orphan daughter of a Canton merchant. He afterwards returned to Turin as secretary to the under-secretary of the legation, and after his wife's death on 5 July 1820 he became connected with the Paris legation. In 1826, urged on by the persuasions of his friends in Paris, he made a foolhardy attempt to improve his prospects by a second marriage. On 7 March by a false message he beguiled from school Ellen Turner, the daughter of William Turner of Shrigley, a wealthy Cheshire manufacturer, inducing her, by representing that her father's fortune depended on her compliance, to go through a ceremony of marriage at Gretna Green. He took the lady with him to Calais, but forbore to consummate the marriage; at Calais he was overtaken by his bride's enraged relatives, who induced her to leave him. Wakefield returned to England to share the fate of his accomplice, his brother William, who had already been arrested. They were both sentenced to three years' imprisonment. The question of the legality of the marriage was involved in so much doubt that it was cancelled by special Act of Parliament. Some two years after his release he published the result of his prison experience and reflections, Facts relating to the Punishment of Death in the Metropolis> (London, 1831, 8vo), a book remarkable alike for its insight and for its extraordinary power of portrayal. To his clear demonstration that punishment is deterrent according to its certainty, not according to its severity, the amelioration of English criminal law was largely due.

        [Illustration of 14 Goat, Sheep and Ram Eyes]

      [London: J. Carpenter, 1827. Lithograph, after Langlois, printed by Engelmann, Graf, Coindet & Co. This plate, from Charles Le Brun's study of human types and animals, a collection of goat, sheep and ram eyes, was intended to show stupidity as demonstrated by the eye Charles Le Brun (1619-1690) was a painter, architect, designer and author. He studied with Vouet and Poussin. Being acquainted with Colbert, he became one of Louis XIV's primary assistants in the designing and decorating of Versailles and other royal building projects. He also wrote an essay on physiognomy: an edition was published in 1827 ("Dissertation sur un traité de Charles Le Brun concernant le rapport de la physionomie humaine avec celle des animaux"). The present image is from this edition, which included lithographic plates printed by Engelmann Graf Coindet & Co. after various artists.

        PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE. NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER...EXTRA...

      Washington, D.C., 1827. Minor edge wear, light scattered foxing. Some small perforations along fold, a few small holes, affecting lettering in sub-headline and text block. Overall good. Expertly matted, and protected with a mylar sheet. A broadside printing of John Quincy Adams' message to Congress at the opening of the first session of the twentieth Congress. While the discord sown during Adams' controversial election in 1824 would divide the nation during his bid for re-election the following year, the present speech offers a calm and prosperous description of the country. Chief among his many topics is the progress of negotiations with Great Britain in regard to the settlement of the northwest boundary. Of particular note is Adams' praise for the postmaster general, John McLean, who was then actively working in support of Andrew Jackson's upcoming campaign against Adams. A good précis of the nation in peacetime. Scarce. Not on OCLC.

        Atlas Portatif

      Paris: Anselin,, [c. 1827-1840]. pour l'intelligence des relations des dernières guerres, publiées sans plans; nottament pour la vie de Napoléon. 2 volumes, quarto: (letterpress) portrait and (maps) landscape (362 x 260, 258 x 343 mm). Contemporary deep purple half roan, purple cloth sides, gilt lettered front covers, red speckled edges. 36 maps (complete). Contemporary ownership inscription (across title pages) of William Fothergill Robinson. Joints partially split but sound, a few marks and stains to covers, scattered foxing and dust marking but an attractive set. First edition, uncommon: Copac locates just two copies in British and Irish institutional libraries (BL, Oxford), OCLC adds around two dozen copies worldwide but not all with the accompanying volume of letterpress descriptions as here. The majority of maps are attractive battle plans with handcoloured troops dispositions (some with overlays to show final stages of battles) and include all of Napoleon's key engagements from Lonato and Castiglione to Waterloo; there are also five larger folding maps of the theatres of operations (southern Germany/northern Italy, northern Germany, Prussia and Russia, Spain and Portugal, France). According to a note from the Bibliothèque nationale de France (loosely inserted, in reply to a previous owner's query) these maps were designed to accompany Jomini's Vie politique et militaire de Napoléon (Paris: Anselin, 1827); although they would appear to have been published as late as 1840.
