      Chez l'éditeur [de l'Imprimerie de Crapelet], Paris, 1827. 1827 - 1 vol. in-folio (180 x 120 mm.) de : [2], 41 pp. (avec les explications dues à la Mesangère), [2] ff. bl, 100 planches gravées rehaussées à la main. Demi-maroquin rouge à coins d'époque, dos lisse orné. (Quelques taches, salissures et restaurations de papier à la p. de faux titre). Edition originale de ce somptueux travail consacré aux toilettes des européennes. Parallèlement au succès grandissant des journaux de mode du premier tiers du XIXe siècle, dont le célèbre Journal des Dames et des Modes édité par Pierre Lamésangère, resté un modèle du genre, plusieurs recueils d’une grande qualité iconographique furent publiés. Ici, la qualité artistique de l’illustration et de la gravure le dispute à celle des commentaires destinés à éclairer le public féminin par ses suggestions et conseils avisés. Dans ses observations préliminaires, l’éditeur précise : « Dans presque toute l’Europe les femmes de la première classe, et même celles de la seconde, prennent à tâche de suivre les modes de Paris : il a donc fallu, pour former une galerie de Costumes caractéristiques, faire dessiner des costumes d’ouvrières, et même de servantes. » Effectivement, l’ensemble des figures présente jeunes femmes et jeunes filles de la ville ou de la campagne dont la plupart sont les élégantes représentantes de divers petits métiers féminins (bouquetières, cuisinières, filles de chambre, fruitières, laitières, paysannes, poissardes ou servantes). Quel que soit leur rang, ces demoiselles des quatre coins de l’Europe ont en commun le raffinement de la tenue et des accessoires ; de la simplicité à la sophistication, du classicisme au pittoresque, les alliances de coloris et de motifs accentuées par la vivacité de la palette de l’aquarelliste offrent un témoignage à la fois authentique et artistique de grande qualité. Outre le célèbre périodique parisien "Journal des Dames et des Modes", très apprécié des milieux mondains mais aussi d’un public plus modeste tant en France qu’en Europe, dont il fût l’éditeur et le rédacteur, Pierre La Mésangère (1761-1831) édita un nombre considérable d’ illustrations sur les us et coutumes parues en séries de 1798 jusqu'à sa mort en 1831 ainsi qu’une série satirique Le Bon Genre (1800 –1822). Le succès des journaux dépendant beaucoup des illustrations, il tint à s’adjoindre des artistes de renom. Parmi ces collaborateurs déjà connus pour leur savoir-faire, le dessinateur Louis Marie Lanté et le graveur Georges-Jacques Gatine qui devinrent les maîtres d’œuvre féconds d’une entreprise couronnée de succès. Ce recueil illustre à merveille la collaboration fructueuse de ce trio de talents, répondant judicieusement à l’engouement du monde féminin pour l’élégance et l’originalité vestimentaire. Bel exemplaire à larges marges. 1 vol. folio. 100 hand-colored engraved plates by G.-J. Gatine. Contemporary half morocco. First edition of this beautiful work on female European's outfit. This book illustrate wonderfully the seminal collaboration between the three artists which answer the feminine passion for elegance and fashion originality. Fine copy, large margins.

        Autograph letter signed to "The Governor Chief Factors & Chief Traders Northern Department'

      Fort Chipewyan [Athabasca, Alberta, Canada] 1827 - Provenance: Charles de Volpy ('C.de V.' ink collector's stamp, sale: R. Maresch & Son, 26 May 1982, lot 21) Long and detailed manuscript account of Hudson's Bay Company fur trading in the wilds of Canada. Alexander Stewart, the chief Hudson's Bay Company factor at Fort Chipewyan (present-day Athabasca) here writes a detailed and fascinating "account of the Company's Affairs in this District," in 1827.The Fort, just north of present-day Edmondton, was the main jumping-off point for trapping expeditions into what is now northern Alberta and the Northwest Territories, especially the area around the Great Slave Lake.This was new country for the trappers. Sir John Franklin's second expedition had explored the country in 1825-27, with the help of the HBC, and particularly Peter Dease. In this letter Stewart describes the situation at the end of 1827, noting that they might have lost important ship-board supplies for trading with Native Canadians "had not Mr. C.[hief] t.[rader] Simon McGillivray . by his judicious management ultimately succeed in getting them here in due time. La Londe the conductor of the craft for this District, I look upon as no longer fit for that duty, having no more command of the men than a common steersman . I, with the able assistance of Mr. P. W. Dease, whom I found here waiting with the remainder of the Mackenzie's River outfit, made various arrangements and settlements with the Indians . Both Peace River and Great Slave Lake (in present-day Northwest Territories) outfits with their people left this on the 5th and 6th." Stewart goes on to mention that he had difficulty distributing goods to the natives, as they came in greater numbers than expected, and describes a disease ("chin-cough," i.e. whooping-cough) that has affected the families. He further mentions that non-importation of liquor has not been a problem and continues: "The natives of Fort Chipewyan and Great Slave Lake have been as obedient as could be expected to our orders not to destroy the beaver during the summer season . The Beaver Indians being more destitute and more in the habit of making their hunt by the Gun . I have taken the liberty to forward herewith to Mr. C.F. McTavish the requisition for outfit 1828 . I mean to send off three boats, which I have no doubt contain all the packs that may be made at this place and Seal River . There are in the district including 4 interpreters 45 men - To take out 3 boats - 21 men / Two loaded canoes - 9 men / Messrs. Smith & Stewarts Canoe - 6 men: 36 men - 9 men left. / Required for summer establishment: Great Slave Lake - 3 men, incl. interpreter / Fort Chipewyan - 3 / Fort Vermilion - 3 / Dunvegon - 3.showing a deficiency of 4.We must recourse to the hiring, if possible, [of] some of our half-breeds or free-men in order to get our returns." Alexander Stewart had originally worked for the North West Company, rising from apprentice (in 1796) to partner (in 1813). At the time of the merger of the North West Company with the Hudson's Bay Company he was based at Little Slave Lake. Stewart was appointed one of the Chief Factor's in the newly merged company, initially based at Fort William (1821-23) and Island Lake (1823-26) before taking over at Fort Chipewyan, where he remained until 1830. He took a furlough in 1830-31, but suffered health problems which led to his retirement in 1833. Peter Warren Dease (1788-1863), whose help Stewart praises in the present letter, would become a chief factor in his own right in the following year. Dease had earlier assisted Franklin during his second expedition in 1825-26, and he went on to gain renown as an Arctic explorer in his own right. In 1836-39, with Thomas Simpson, Dease commanded an expedition which explored the Arctic coast from the mouth of the Mackenzie River to Point Barrow. 5 1/2 pp., legal folio (12 1/2 x 7 7/8 inches). Dampstained, tears at folds, two bifolium, with docket panel on verso of final page "Fort Chipewyan 28th Decr. '27 / Alex Stewart"

        The HISTORY Of SCOTLAND, Translated from the Latin of George Buchanan; With NOTES And a Continuation to the Union in the Reign of Queen Anne. By James Aikman, Esq. In Four Volumes. [Vols V & VI: "And a Continuation to the Present Time. In Six Volumes."].

      Published by Blackie Fullarton & Co., and Archibald Fullarton & Co., Edinburgh. 1827 - 1829, Glasgow: - Illustrated with frontis in each volume & a hand-colored folding copperplate map of Scotland in Volume I. BuchananÕs greatest literary achievement of his later years was his Rerum Scoticarum Historia, initially published in 1582, in which he related the history of Scotland from its origin till the death of the regent Lennox in 1571. . the underlying object of the book is the inculcation of those principles of political and religious liberty of which Buchanan had been the consistent champion throughout his career. By the leading scholars of Europe it was adjudged to be a work of transcendent merit, and even in the eighteenth century it was seriously debated whether Caesar, Livy, or Sallust had been his model. In this History, which for fully two centuries kept its place as a standard authority, Buchanan had appealed both to scholars and protestant theologians. [Cambridge History of English & American Literature]. While the work was extremely popular, and remained in print almost continuously well into the 19th C., this was one of the more ambitious editions, extending the History until the 'present' day. Each volume with the contemporaneous ownership signature of one "Thomas Inglis, Gardener / Barriston 1828". Spines darkened a bit. Usual foxing to paper. Vol I front joint starting @ top.

        Sketches of a Tour to the Lakes, of the Character and Customs of the Chippeway Indians. And of incidents connected with the Treaty of Fond du Lac. Also a Vocabulary of the Algic or Chippeway Language

      Fielding Lucas, Jr., Baltimore 1827 - viii-[9]-493+[1] pages with 6 of 29 plates, three appendices: Copy of the Journal of the Proceedings under the treaty of Fond Du Lac, as noted by the Secretary, TREATY Between the United States of American and the Chippeway tribe of Indians; concluded August 5, 1826 and Vocabulary of the Algic, or Chippeway Language. Octavo (8 3/4" x 5 3/4") bound in original blind stamped cloth with gilt lettering to spine. (Hpwes: M132, Sabin 43407, Field 994, Pilling: 2383) First edition. Thomas McKenney started as a merchant. In 1815 he ran a commission store near the ferry wharf in Georgetown. He was also on the board of directors of the Bank of Columbia, in Georgetown, with John Cox, John Threlkeld, and Henry Foxall. In 1816 McKenney secured a Federal appointment as Superintendent of Indian Trade. In those days delegations of Indians that came to Washington generally stayed in hotel rooms; the beds had been removed to accommodate their preference for sleeping on the ground. Some of these representatives of southern and western tribes also visited Weston, McKenney’s farm on Georgetown Heights. In 1820, Sans Nerf, a chief of the Great Osages, and two companions, were there. In the winter of 1821-22 a delegation of Pawnee, Sauk, Fox, Menominee, Miami, Sioux, and Chippewa Indians came to the farm, and in 1824, Cherokee chief Elijah Hicks was there. The Factory System of government trading posts involved commodities as coffee, sugar, lead, salt, penknives, northwest blankets, calico, and strouding (coarse woolen cloth used in the Indian trade). What came back were furs. The Factory System ended in 1822, over opposition by the John Jacob Astor’s American Fur Company, and by manufacturers and merchants who resented McKenney, and the Georgetown merchants he favored. One such merchant was John Cox, importer and banker, and later mayor of Georgetown. Cox loaned money to McKenney to buy Weston, and McKenney bought from Cox for the Indian trade, nearly to the exclusion of other merchants. From 1824 to 1830, McKenney served as Superintendent of Indian Affairs. While his upbringing as a merchant had no doubt prepared him for the earlier position, supervising the Indian Trade, his qualifications to be an architect of Indian policy are harder to picture. McKenney’s transactions with the "civilized" southern tribes had, at one time, persuaded him that Indians might be able to adopt white values, and McKenney made several experiments along these lines of his own (albeit at government expense). In 1818, James Lawrence MacDonald, son of a Choctaw woman and a white man, raised by Baltimore Quakers, came to Weston, McKenney’s farm on Georgetown Heights, and worked for him at the War Department. In 1827 McKenney brought two Creek boys back to Washington to be educated. One was William Barnard, son of Major Timpoochee Barnard, an ally of Andrew Jackson in the Creek War. A boy named Lee Compere was William Barnard’s companion. The boys remained with McKenney for three years. Finally, in 1828, Dougherty Colbert, age 15, the son of a Chickasaw chief, came to live at Weston, to attend school in Georgetown. Colbert was praised by McKenney for losing the Chickasaw language! Although these views would seem to conform to those generally ascribed to Andrew Jackson, in 1830 McKenney was dismissed for not being in harmony with the Indian policy of the Jackson administration. At the same time President Jackson ordered the War Department to remove McKenney’s Indian boys from school and return them to their people. The present volume describes the author's expedition to the Chippewa, Winnegago, and Menominee tribes and the signing of the treaty of Fond du Lac in 1827. Condition: Six of 29 plates, lacks all the colored plates and the frontispiece. Old institutional embossed stamped to title and institutional book plate to front paste down, spine professional repaired, foxing through out else a good to very good copy.

        Quatuor pour 2 Violons Alto & Violoncelle. Composé & Dédié à son ami Johann Wolfmeier . Oeuvre posthume. Oeuv. 135. No. 17 des Quatuors. - Propriété des éditeurs. - Prix 2 Rthlr.

      Berlin, chez Ad. Mt. Schlesinger, Libraire et éditeur de musique. Unter den Linden No. 34. PARIS, chez Maurice Schlesinger Md de musique du Roi. 1444. (1827). - Folio. Title, pp. 2 – 11, (1) p. (blank); 9 pp., (1) p. (blank); 9 pp., (1) p. (blank); (1) p. (blank), pp. 2 – 8. Engraved throughout (pl.-no. 1444). Sewn, no binding; in modern cassette. First edition (variant with 1 title, the original no. "17" [number of quartets] on title and all the other characteristcs of the first edition mentioned by Hoboken). The wealthy cloth merchant Johann Wolfmeier was a long-standing friend and admirer of Beethoven. His name in the dedication is representative of a social change which was taking place in Vienna during Beethoven's time: Whereas the composer at the beginning of his career as full-time musician had had to rely on the sponsorship of the aristocracy, so it was in Vienna following the Congress of Vienna that the rise in the upper classes could be seen; often they represented a more stable financial base for providing artistic patronage than the frequently indebted aristocracy. The F-Dur Quartet presents the last complete composition of Beethoven, and the title ("Difficult Decision") as well as the motto ("Must it be? – It must be!") above the 4th movement have given rise to a multitude of interpretations and speculation. All parts with brown stains to last page. Small brown-stain to first page of viola-part. Green fore-edges. Slightly browned throughout and in places finger-stained. Kinsky/Halm p. 410; Dorfmüller p. 18, 234, 257, 352; Hirsch IV, 412; BHB C 135/1; coll. Hoboken 2, 528 (variant with 4 titles); cat. Munich 270. [Attributes: First Edition]

The performance took place on March 21, 1826. [Matthias Artaria] had purchased the publishing rights of the Quartett and after the performance he went to Beethoven with the suggestion that he write a new finale and that the fugue be published as an independent piece. Beethoven complied, and the original finale was subsequently published as Op. 133." Thayer-Forbes: Beethoven, pp. 974-975. Folio. 1f.

One of the most important sources on the early western frontier, with primary source material on Indian warfare of the Revolutionary period in Kentucky and Ohio. Stipp's work is most notable for including the first separate printing of John Bradford's NOTES ON KENTUCKY, which first appeared in the KENTUCKY GAZETTE, published in Lexington beginning Aug. 25, 1826. Herein are found some of the basic accounts of Boone and other famous Indian fighters. The rest of the book consists of further anecdotes of the early frontier. A great midwestern rarity, and a mine of firsthand source material on the Kentucky Indian wars during the Revolution. A beautiful copy with excellent provenance, this sold for $1700 at the Streeter sale. HOWES S1011, "d." STREETER SALE 1665. COLEMAN 2247. SABIN 91838. THOMSON 1109. MORGAN 1359. SHOEMAKER 30713.

        A.S.E. EL PRESIDENT DE LA HONORABLE CAMARA DEL SEANDO. EXCMO. SEÑOR. EN NINGUNA CIRCUNSTANCIA ERA TAN NECESARIA A LA REPUBLICA LA AUGUSTA AUTORIDAD DEL COONGRESO, COMO EN ESTA EPOCA EN QUE LOS DISTURBIOS INTERNOS...[caption title and part of first line of text]

      Caracas. Feb. 6, 1827.. [2]pp. plus integral blank. Folio. Old fold; slight separation at fold. Light creasing. Very good. In a half morocco box. In this apparently unique broadsheet, Simón Bolivar tenders his resignation as president of Gran Colombia to the Congress in Caracas, Venezuela. By 1827 internal conflicts and political pressures were threatening the stability of the Republic Bolivar had created, Gran Colombia (present-day Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela, and parts of Peru). In an attempt to pacify dissenters and preserve the fragile federation, Bolivar addressed the Congress, offering to step aside and assuring the people that he had no plans to declare himself as absolute ruler. In this address Bolivar points to the fact that Gran Colombia is in an advantageous position, recognized by the United States and with Great Britain threatening war with Spain. Despite a rosy outlook, Bolivar notes that suspicions that El Libertador will exert himself as a tyrannical dictator continue to plague the political environment. Thus - in the tradition of George Washington - he is resigning from office. He writes (in translation): "In vain do I invoke the example of Washington to defend myself...." Though he is not innocent of ambition, Bolivar wishes to "remove my fellow citizens from the claws of this fury, and free them from uneasiness." Declaring his renunciation to be irrevocable, he writes: "My sword and my heart will nevertheless be for Colombia; and with my last breath I will ask heaven to grant her happiness." Despite this declaration, the Congress refused to accept Bolivar's resignation. Unable to settle on a new constitution and form of government, the Constitutional Convention of 1828 fell apart and Bolivar proclaimed himself dictator for life on August 27th. Intended to be a temporary measure to stabilize the government, this move resulted in an assassination attempt just a month later. Bolivar died two years later of tuberculosis. Not located in any of the usual sources, including Palau and OCLC. An important piece of South American history.

The work was previously published in full score in 1812, also by Breitkopf & Härtel. Kinsky p. 240-41. Not in Hoboken. The word "italienisch" (Italian) on the title page should read "lateinisch" (Latin). The German text, not credited in the edition, is by Christian Schreiber. The addition of a vernacular text underlay - for the most part newly-written poetry without resemblance to the liturgical text - to a Latin mass was fashionable in its time and place, when the Catholic Church opposed performances of liturgical music in concerts and anti-clerical sentiment was strong among intellectuals. The only sections where the German text amounts to a translation of the original concern the Last Judgment in the Credo, the Sanctus, the Osanna, and some passages of the Agnus Dei. All references to Jesus Christ are deleted. Beethoven approved the German text although he was critical of some passages of it. See Kinsky, p. 240, and J. Schmidt-[Görg], "Die deutschen Texte zu Beethovens C-dur Messe," Veröffentlichungen des Beethoven-Hauses 5, Bonn, 1928. "Dr. Rust" is possibly Wilhelm Rust (1822-1892), the composer and scholar known as the editor of 26 volumes of the original Bach- Gesellschaft edition of J.S. Bach's complete works.
