        Six Quartiers de Paris

      Paris: Delpech, 1828. - Extremely Rare MonnierMONNIER, Henri. Six Quartiers de Paris. Paris: [François Séraphin] Delpech, 1828. A rare suite of six hand colored lithographed plates, (without the hand colored lithographed title) otherwise complete as issued. Oblong quarto. Plate size: 9 x 12 inches (231 x 307 mm). Bound to contemporary style in full dark green morocco. Gilt ruled borders. Gilt panel. Gilt lettering and ornaments to spine. Restoration to lower corner of plate four, otherwise a fine copy.According to the ABPC Index, since 1923 only three copies have come to auction (1938, 1949, 1979). There are only three copies in institutional holdings worldwide.The plates:1. Le Marais2. Quartier St. Denis3. Quartier de la Bourse4. Chaussée d'Antin5. Faubourg St. Honoré6. Le Faubourg St. GermainFor reasons unknown, Ray identifies this suite as being by Eugene Lami, despite the plates clearly identified as by Monnier; the only copy to come to auction in the last thirty-five years is also identified Lami as the artist. Melcher, however, correctly identifies the suite as Monnier's, as does Marie (Marie, Aristide. Henri Monnier 1799-1877. Paris, 1931) and Champfleury. Curiously, the only copy in institutional holdings, that in the Morgan Library, belonged to Ray but though the note is under Lami's authorship the Responsibility detail in OCLC/RILN clearly states: "par Monnier."Between 1825 and 1827 Monnier passed much of his time in London On his return to Paris he embarked on a series of albums in which he recorded the manners and humors of the city with unprecedented profusion. Between 1826 and 1830 he satisfied the insatiable demand for his designs with almost 500 lithographs, nearly all of which were drawn with a pen and colored by hand. For each design he himself colored a master print and carefully supervised its subsequent preparation" (Ray, p. 199).François Séraphin Delpech was a French lithographer, mainly of portraits and costumes after his contemporaries. His portrait lithographs are in the collection of Britain's National Portrait Gallery and the Louvre. He also lithographed the work of others, as here.Marie pp. 296-302.

        Chansons de P.J. de Béranger, Anciennes, Nouvelles et Inédites

      Badouin Frères, Paris 1828 - Paris, Badouin Frères, 1828. 2 volumes, 8º (208 x 130 mm.), pp. 439, 438, roughly contemporary full orange morocco gilt, spines with flattened bands gilt in compartments, lettered direct, plain blue endpapers, all edges gilt. Bookplates of Stephens Lyne Stephens, MP for Barnstaple 1830, "the richest commoner in England". Ilustrated with numerous wood-engraved head- and tail-pieces, and a total of 33 hand-coloured lithographs (27 in the first and 6 in the second volume) by Henri Monnier. Bindings a litle rubbed but still most attractive, internally scattered pale foxing or browning, never obtrusive. Otherwise in excellent condition. These volumes contain the first four series of the Chansons, the fourth of which, published in the same year, resulted in his imprisonment for nine months in La Force prison. Very scarce. Beranger (1780-1857) was a French songwriter, perhaps the greatest. The socialist and revolutionary content of his songs resulted in several brushes with the authorities. The chansons were composed with fastidious care and are notable for their clarity, wit and incisiveness.

        Symbolae physicae seu icones et descriptiones piscium, qui ex itinere per Africam borealem et Asiam occidentalem. Decas prima: Pisces.

      . Berlin, Officina Academica, 1828. Folio. Atlas with ten plates; nine nicely hand-coloured lithographs and one uncoloured. In original portfolio with printed boards.* Part of a large work on the natural history of northeastern Africa and the Middle East, published piecemeal, always in issues with ten plates, over a long period. This, however, is all that was published on the fishes. Four plates depict 12 species of sharks, and another one a large ray. The other plates show bone-fishes. These are all Red Sea species. Traditionally the work is attributed to "Ehrenberg and Hemprich", but on the front board the names are switched. One caption mentions "H & E" as authors. Dean lists this under Hemprich and Ehrenberg. Hemprich died, en route, in 1825, and his compatriot and fellow explorer Christian Gottfried Ehrenberg (1795-1876) published the results under both names.

Thoms began his working life as a clerk in the secretary's office at Chelsea Hospital, a position he held until 1844. His principal interests, early conceived, were in literature and bibliography, especially the latter. In bibliography he received much help from Thomas Amyot, the antiquary, through whom he became acquainted with Francis Douce. Douce encouraged Thoms in his studies, lent him books and manuscripts from his great library in Gower Street, and gave him much assistance in editing his first publication, Early Prose Romances. Thoms's next publications were Lays and Legends of France, Spain, Tartary, and Ireland and Lays and Legends of Germany, in which he was assisted by Douce; both appeared in 1834. In 1832 he had tried his hand at periodical literature as the editor of The Original, a miscellany of humour, literature, and the fine arts. It lasted a little over four months, running to twenty-two numbers. In 1838 Thoms was elected a fellow of the Society of Antiquaries, and in the same year was appointed the first secretary of the Camden Society, a post he held until 1873. DNBCondition: In full calf bindings. Externally rubbed, volume I joints cracked, volume III joints starting, and wear to all three spines. Internally, firmly bound.

        La reunion de malhechores en cuadrilla en la provincial de Cavite

      Manila 1828 - [Manila, no printer, 1828]. In 4to (274 mm x 188 mm). pp. 13, [1, blank], printed on rice paper, text in Spanish and Tagalog, with occasional contemporary manuscript notes, initialled by Ricafort; lightly browned, larger paper tears skilfully repaired, other smaller paper tears near old folds with no loss of text, fore-edge of first page chipped with no loss of text; in paper wrappers. Allowing the offense, murder and capture of bandits, without punishment; an intriguing insight to political views in the early 19th century Philippines. A very rare pamphlet issued by Mariano Ricafort, Governor-General of the Philippines, permitting members of the public to capture or kill bandits. Ricafort was Governor of the Philippines between 1825 and 1830 and the protection of the lucrative Spanish tobacco monopoly from banditry was one of his priorities. Printed in Spanish and the native Philippine language Tagalog, the pamphlet contains a list of the names, villages, and regions that the bandits originate from, some marked in ink, presumably indicating their capture or execution. The majority of those named are from the troubled region of Cavite, others are from Batangas, Laguan, Tondo and Bataan. ¿Banditry in Cavite was related to the expansion of the estates owned by the religious orders in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The total amount of land held by these orders grew nearly 16 percent on average, while the area of certain haciendas increased by as much as 38 percent over this period. Much of this expansion was at the expense of peasant cultivators . . . . As early as the 1820s, the intensity of banditry in Cavite can be directly related to changes in share cropping agreements. Tenants who were forced to pay a fixed rent irrespective of yield rather than a percentage of the harvest turned to banditry around Imus between 1822 and 1828. Twenty-four of the band¿s thirty-nine members were born in Cavite and fifteen came from Imus alone. A list of those sentenced to death in absentia by Governor-General Ricafort in 1828 identifies the notorious Caviteño bandit chief Luis de los Santos (alias Parang) and his lieutenant, Juan Bestre alias Upay, as being residents of Imus¿ (Greg Bankoff, Crime, society and the state in the nineteenth-century Philippines, Manila, 1996, pp. 62¿64). Those capturing bandits are promised a pardon for earlier crimes committed (except in cases of heresy and the falsification of money). Bandits are not subject to a trial and, if captured alive, are to be hanged once formally identified. Rewards are of 50 pesos for bandits killed, and 100 pesos if brought to the authorities alive. Not in Palau. Not found in OCLC or CCPBE. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Report of the select committe on anatomy

      London 1828 - Parliament. House of Commons. Report from the select committee on anatomy. Folio. 150pp. [London:] House of Commons, 22 July 1828. 331 x 212 mm. 19th century boards, rebacked and recornered in calf, light edgewear. Very good copy. Old medical library stamp on title and first page.First Edition of this highly interesting and entertaining report on the British body-snatching crisis. Since the mid-eighteenth century, obtaining cadavers for teaching purposes had been regulated in Britain by the Murder Act of 1752, which stipulated that only the corpses of executed criminals could be used for dissection. By the beginning of the nineteenth century, however, improvements in medical science, coupled with a substantial drop in the number of executions, caused the demand for cadavers to far outstrip the legal supply. This situation was ripe for exploitation by "resurrection men," criminals who robbed the graves of the newly deceased and sold their corpses to teachers of anatomy, who of necessity turned a blind eye to the illegality of these transactions. Some grave-robbers even resorted to murder, including the infamous William Burke, who in December 1828 was arrested in Edinburgh for the murders of over a dozen victims whose corpses he and his partner Hare sold to an anatomical demonstrator connected to Edinburgh University.In the first half of 1828, in response to increasing calls for reform, the British Parliament appointed a committee to "enquire into the manner of obtaining subjects for dissection by schools of Anatomy and the State of law affecting persons employed in obtaining and dissecting bodies." During the course of its investigation, the committee heard testimony from a wide range of witnesses, from eminent medical men to procurers of bodies for medical schools (these last identified only by initials). The medical men included Sir Astley Cooper, Benjamin Collins Brodie, John Abernethy, William Lawrence, Herbert Mayo, Granville Sharp Pattison (who himself was indicted for body-snatching at the age of 23), Thomas Southwood Smith, Henry Halford, John Webster and Benjamin Harrison, the treasurer of Guy's Hospital. The witness list can be found on page 13 of the committee's report. The testimony of these men, reproduced in full in the report, is followed by several appendices, including tables of paupers' deaths broken down by parish; the committee was proposing legislation that would allow the state to seize unclaimed corpses from workhouses and sell them to surgical schools. The committee's efforts were successful: In 1832 Parliament passed the Anatomy Act, granting licenses to teachers of anatomy and giving physicians, surgeons and medical students legal access to corpses unclaimed after death.

        TUNIS-HAMBURG TREATY OF FRIENDSHIP: Official Decree by the Bey of Tunis Appointing George William Crowe His Plenipotentiary in Order to Compile a Treaty of Friendship and Commerce with the City of Hamburg; With: Separate Document Containing the Italian Translation of the Decree Signed by Hassuna Morali, First Interpreter of the Court of Basha Bey of Tunis; Both Documents are Certified as Genuine by the British Consul General, Sir Thomas Reade (on verso of the leaf with the Italian text)].

      Tunis 1828 - Two documents, both Tunis, 1828. On two folded Elephant Folio leaves, each ca. 33x22 cm (when folded). Fold marks, paper aged and slightly soiled, otherwise very good documents. Each folded and consisting of two leaves. The Documents are in good condition. Official decree of the Bey of Tunis: 1 p. Brown ink on French paper watermarked "Louis XVIII, Roi de France". Text in Arabic, with the official ink seal of the Bey of Tunis. Italian translation: 2 pp. Dated "9 Muharram, year 1244" [1828]. Brown ink on laid paper. Text in Italian and English (on verso), with the impressed seal of British Consul General in Tunis. Rare and very interesting document from the time of establishment of diplomatic relations between Tunis and Germany. Original decree with the seal of the Bey of Tunis (Hussein II Bey, ruled in 1824-1835) authorising certain George William Crowe to negotiate with the "Regno de Amburgo" in establishing friendship and commerce. Crowe is supposed to compile a treaty which needs to be presented to the Bey for examination, and "if God will, to be granted". In the English certificate written on verso of the Italian translation of the decree, British Consul General in Tunis Sir Thomas Reade (1785-1849) extends Crowe's rights, which "are not restricted to the specific object therein set forth, but that he instructed to act on behalf of His Highness as Charge of Affaires in all such matters as may be for the service of His Highness & particularly to treat for a loan for his use". The certificate is dated 11 August, 1828. George William Crowe was later mentioned as British consul general in Tripoli (The Royal Calendar and Court and City Register for England, Scotland, Ireland and the Colonies. London, 1852, p. 193). Sir Thomas Reade, British Consul in Tunis, played an important role in the abolition of slavery. Reade was Deputy Adjutant-General on St. Helena during Napoleon¿s captivity, was present at Napoleon's post-mortem and left a valuable account of it preserved in the Lowe Papers.

Vidocq wrote only the first volume in the French original; a ghost writer was brought in for the rest of the work. The translation is variously attributed to George Borrow or H.T.R.

        The American Fireman, Facing the Enemy

      A wonderfully detailed hand colored lithograph from the publishing firm of Currier & Ives. This print measures approximately 16"x20". Overall this print  is in good condition with some foxing/staining/creasing and small tears to the margins. Also discoloration from previous matt in the margins and top right corner torn. Currier and Ives created the most popular and highly regarded lithographs of quintessentially American scenes ever produced. The quality, vast scope and engagingly populist style of their works have made their names synonymous with an idealistic vision of 19th-century American promise and optimism. The Old Grist Mill among their most popular imagery were scenes of winter in the country, which resonated strongly, especially with an urban American public that was highly nostalgic for the simpler rural life. Nathaniel Currier began his lithographic career as an apprentice in 1828. By the mid-1830's he had established his own firm on Spruce Street in New York City. In 1857 James Ives became a partner in the flourishing business, which went on to produce over 7,000 lithographs by 1907. Currier & Ives was undoubtedly the most prolific firm of lithographers in America, its output greater than that of all the other firms combined. The remarkable scope of this production was matched by the company's ability to anticipate popular themes and subject matter. Among their many works are lithographs depicting sporting, railroad and rural scenes, marine, and western views, as well as foreign and domestic city views, historical tableaux, and a wide range of sentimental, morally instructive and advertising images. Currier & Ives' broad productivity was accompanied by consistently high standards of printing and hand-coloring, and their ability to draw on original works by many of the finest American genre painters of the times, including -besides Durrie - Fanny Palmer, Louis Maurer, and Arthur Fitzwilliam Tait."Arader Galleries intends to have the lowest prices on ABE, Alibris, Biblio, AE, and Artnet while maintaining the highest levels of quality in the business for every offering.

        SIMON BOLIVAR LIBERTADOR PRESIDENTE DE COLOMBIA &&&. COLOMBIANOS! LAS VOLUNTADES PUBLICAS SE HABIAN ESPRESADO ENERJICAMENTE POR LAS REFORMAS POLITICAS DE LA NACION. [caption title and first line of text].

      Bogota. Aug. 27, 1828. - [1]pp. plus integral blank. [with]: SIMON BOLIVAR LIBERTADOR PRESIDENTE DE LA REPUBLICA DE COLOMBIA.DECRETO ORGANICO.[caption title]. [4]pp. Folio. Old creases. Minor soiling. Very good plus. In a half morocco box. An extremely rare broadside printing of Bolivar's declaration of dictatorial powers, addressed to the people of Gran Colombia, together with the DECRETO ORGANICO issued by him, outlining the organization of his new government. The two documents - bearing the same watermark, folds, and publication date - appear to have been issued together to the Treasury; a contemporary hand has written "Tesoreria" on the first leaf, and the wear patterns suggest that they have been kept together for some time. Simon Bolivar was already president and founding hero of Gran Colombia (present- day Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela, and parts of Peru). In February 1827, with the nation floundering and on the point of fragmentation, Bolivar had proposed resigning his position as president, claiming he had no desire for dictatorial control. The Congress rejected his resignation. After a failed constitutional convention in the summer of 1828, Bolivar declared himself, by this decree, dictator for life, in what was intended as a temporary measure to maintain unification. In the first document, Bolivar addresses the "Colombianos," explaining his reasoning for the extraordinary measures granting him absolute power over the government. He also assures his countrymen that he will not remain a dictator any longer than necessary, but in the meantime pledges to "commit myself to obey strictly your legitimate desires" (in translation). The second document, the DECRETO ORGANICO, lays out six articles granting Bolivar absolute power. Both are signed in type by Bolivar. Though the text of these important proclamations was anthologized at an early date and has frequently been republished, copies are exceedingly scarce on the market. We were able to locate only one institutional copy of each, at the John Carter Brown Library. PALAU 32190. POSADA, BOGOTANA 1042.

        Guido, A Tale; Sketches from History, and Other Poems

      New York - G. & C. Carvill 1828 - The first edition of Embury's first collection of poetry andextremely scarce. Rebacked in quarter cloth with the original boards. This work is held only at the British Library in the British Isles. Emma Catherine Embury, 1806 1863, was an American author and poet who lived and worked in New York. The Literati of New York August 1846 Author: Edgar Alan PoeEmma EmburyMrs. Embury is one of the most noted, and certainly one of the most meritorious of our female littrateurs. She has been many years before the public her earliest compositions, I believe, having been contributed to the New York Mirror under the nom de plume Ianthe. They attracted very general attention at the time of their appearance and materially aided the paper. They were subsequently, with some other pieces, published in volume form, with the title Guido and other Poems. The book has been long out of print. Of late days its author has written but little poetry that little, however, has at least indicated a poetic capacity of no common order. Yet as a poetess she is comparatively unknown, her reputation in this regard having been quite overshadowed by that which she has acquired as a writer of tales. In this latter capacity she has, upon the whole, no equal among her sex in America certainly no superior. She is not so vigorous as Mrs. Stephens, nor so vivacious as Miss Chubbuck, nor so caustic as Miss Leslie, nor so dignified as Miss Sedgwick, nor so graceful, fanciful and spirituelle as Mrs. Osgood, but is deficient in none of the qualities for which these ladies are noted, and in certain particulars surpasses them all. Her subjects are fresh, if not always vividly original, and she manages them with more skill than is usually exhibitedby our magazinists. She has also much imagination and sensibility, while her style is pure, earnest, and devoid of verbiage and exaggeration. I make a point of reading all tales to which I see the name of Mrs. Embury appended. The story by which she has attained most reputation is Constance Latimer, the Blind Girl. Mrs. E. is a daughter of Doctor Manly, an eminent physician of New York city. At an early age she married a gentleman of some wealth and of education, as well as of tastes akin to her own. She is noted for her domestic virtues no less than for literary talents and acquirements. She is about the medium height; complexion, eyes, and hair light; arched eyebrows; Grecian nose; the mouth a fine one and indicative of firmness; the whole countenance pleasing, intellectual and expressive. The portrait in Graham's Magazine for January, 1843, has no resemblance to her whatever. Condition: The text block binding is generally tight and firm although becomingloose in places. Pages 111-118 are detached but present. The inner hinges are strained. There is wear to the extremities, including bumping and rubbing, with marks and slight loss. Internally the pages have slight browning and scattered foxing, most prominent to the first and last few pages. Overall the condition is good only. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Journal of a Residence and Tour in the Republic of Mexico in the Year 1826. With some Account of the Mines of that Country

      John Murray, London 1828 - 2 Volumes: viii+323 pages; iv+304+[i ad] pages with glossary. Small octavo (7 3/4" x 5") in original paper covered boards and spine title labels as originally issued. From the library of Professor George M Foster. (Sabin:42852; Hill page 186) 1st edition. G F Lyon was an English traveler, born in Chichester, England, in 1795; died at sea in October, 1832. He entered the British naval service in 1809, was present at the attack on Algiers by Lord Exmouth in 1816, and in 1818 was commissioned to accompany Joseph Ritchie on his tour of exploration into central Africa. Ritchie died in Fezzan, and Lyon returned to England, after encountering many dangers and privations, which he described in his Narrative of Travels in Northern Africa (London, 1821). In 1821, in command of the Hecla, he accompanied Captain William E. Parry on his arctic expedition, publishing on his return The Private Journal of Captain G. F. Lyon (1824). In 1824 he sailed in command of the Griper' with the mission of exploring Melville peninsula, and following its western shore as far as Turn-again, he found, after three months' searching, a passage through the group of islets called Southampton island, but was unable to enter Repulse bay through Sir Thomas Rowe's Welcome. On 13 September, a violent tempest compelled him to return to England. The story of the voyage was told in A Brief Narrative of an Unsuccessful Attempt (1825). He subsequently passed several years in Mexico, and died on his return from a second visit to America. His remaining works are The SketchBook of Captain G. F. Lyon during Eighteen Months' Residence in Mexico, No. 1 (London, 1827), and Journal of a Residence and Tour in Mexico in 1828 (London, 1828). George McClelland Foster, Jr born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on October 9, 1913, died on May 18, 2006, at his home in the hills above the campus of the University of California, Berkeley, where he served as a professor from 1953 to his retirement in 1979, when he became professor emeritus. His contributions to anthropological theory and practice still challenge us; in more than 300 publications, his writings encompass a wide diversity of topics, including acculturation, long-term fieldwork, peasant economies, pottery making, public health, social structure, symbolic systems, technological change, theories of illness and wellness, humoral medicine in Latin America, and worldview. The quantity, quality, and long-term value of his scholarly work led to his election to the National Academy of Sciences in 1976. Virtually all of his major publications have been reprinted and/or translated. Provenance from the executor of Foster's library laid in. Condition: Spines renewed with original chipped spine labels laid on, front end papers chipped and damaged at edges, corners bumped and rubbed, Foster's stamp on end papers, old owner's signature on covers, internally near fine else over all very good.

        JOURNEY TO THE WORLD UNDER GROUND; BEING THE SUBTERRANEOUS TRAVELS OF NIELS KLIM. From the Latin of Lewis [i.e. Ludvig] Holberg

      London: Published by Thomas North,. 1828. Octavo, pp. [1-2] [i-iii] iv [v] vi-xv [xvi] [1] 2-420,. original drab boards with brown cloth shelf back, printed paper label affixed to spine panel, untrimmed.. Owner's name and date in ink on front free endpaper. Skillfully. rebacked with original cloth spine and paper label preserved, a very. good copy with clean interior. An uncommon edition of this book. Rare. in the original binding. (#89868). Second edition in English. The second of the three earliest translations into English, the first two (1742 and 1828) anonymous, the third (1845) by John Gierlow. The 1828 edition is of value because it contains new matter, mainly the "Apologetic Preface," introduced by Holberg into the second Latin edition of 1745. Holberg's novel marks the first important fictional use of astronomer Edmond Halley's theory (suggested in a paper to account for magnetic phenomena published by Royal Society in 1692) that the Earth (and the other planets) consisted of concentric, nested spheres surrounding a small central sun, with, possibly, openings at the poles. Holberg's satire was first published in Latin to gain a wide audience, which it did. The book was never banned in Denmark, though it was unpopular among religious powers of the time. "Holberg was one of the leading scholars and playwrights of the eighteenth century, perhaps the chief literary figure in Denmark to date. NIELS KLIM has been translated into at least thirteen languages and published in more than sixty editions, including at least eight in English. It is in the genre of the imaginary voyage which has been so much a part of utopian writing from its very beginnings. In this case the voyage to the interior of the earth comes about when Niels Klim falls down a shaft and finds himself in a new world. He visits a number of different countries including Potu the ideal state, which expels him for suggesting that women should not hold public office. Other states are modeled on various terrestrial countries; in Martinia (France) he is honored for inventing the periwig. In primitive Quama (Russia) he becomes emperor by leading the inhabitants to victory over neighboring nations, but rebellion against his tyranny forces him to flee. His journey ends when he crawls through another hole and finds himself back in Norway ... Scholars have pointed out numerous resemblances to GULLIVER'S TRAVELS, and there are, indeed, many similarities. Perhaps the chief difference is that Swift was concerned with the behavior of individuals and Holberg with that of society." - Lewis, Utopian Literature, p. 92. "Essentially a satire on European culture and institutions in the guise of an imaginary voyage. It was translated into Danish not long after the Latin publication, and in Denmark its acceptance has paralleled that of Swift's GULLIVER'S TRAVELS in the English-speaking world ... Holberg's work is an obvious imitation of Swift's GULLIVER'S TRAVELS, and a comparison is called for. Holberg's satire is wider in scope, more penetrating in analysis, and less local than Swift's; the peculiarly British elements in Swift are not paralleled by Scandinavian elements in Holberg, who also lacks Swift's misanthropy. In imagination and literary polish, however, Swift is superior to Holberg." - Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 1114. Aldiss and Wingrove, Trillion Year Spree, pp. 78-9. Anatomy of Wonder (1976) 1-21; (1981) 1-100; (1987) 1-50; 6-346; and 6-390; (1995) 1-50; and (2004) II- 536. Clute and Nicholls (eds), The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction (1993), p. 577.

        De l'Organisation du Conseil d'Etat en cour judiciaire ; de sa juridiction ; des moyens de la mettre en harmonie avec la Charte et de donner les garanties légales et nécessaires aux justiciables sur les points qui sont en contact avec l'administration publique ; des conseils de préfecture ; et de la nécessité de créer des tribunaux administratifs.

      Paris, Renduel, Lemoine 1828 - in-8, [4]-XXVIII-116 pp., maroquin cerise, dos à nerfs orné de filets, guirlandes et fleurons dorés, encadrement de simple filet et guirlande dorés ainsi que de guirlande à froid sur les plats, super-libris doré poussé sur le premier plat, pointillé doré sur les coupes, tranches dorées, dentelle intérieure (reliure de l'époque). Qques rousseurs et papier un peu bruni. Unique édition de cette monographie d'autant plus intéressante que la période de la Restauration correspond à un moment de repli de l'institution, intervenant après la surchauffe napoléonienne. La monarchie restaurée se méfie du Conseil d'Etat, jugé trop lié avec le fonctionnement du régime de l'usurpateur ; non mentionné dans la Charte, il est conservé avec un rôle restreint, centré sur ses fonctions de contentieux administratif. Dupin (1832), 2450. Précieux exemplaire de Joseph-Marie Portalis (1778-1858), fils du ministre de Napoléon, avec super-libris en forme d'envoi sur le plat supérieur "Hommage à Son Excellence le Garde des Sceaux, ministre de la Justice par Routhier avocat." Portalis fut Garde des Sceaux dans le cabinet Martignac du 4 janvier 1828 au 14 mi 1829, date à laquelle il échangea ce portefeuille pour celui des Affaires étrangères. Normalement, ce genre d'ex-dono suit la parution de l'ouvrage et il y a donc tout lieu de supposer que Portalis en était bien le destinataire. Cependant, très curieusement, et sans qu'on puisse bien en reconstituer le cheminement, il semble que l'ouvrage ait ensuite appartenu à Jacques-Charles Dupont de l'Eure (1767-1855), avec ex-libris manuscrit au faux-titre. Le vieux révolutionnaire fut aussi Garde des Sceaux, mais sous la Monarchie de Juillet : dans le ministère provisoire des 31 juillet / 1er août 1830, avec reconduction dans le premier cabinet du 11 août 1830, puis dans le ministère Laffite du 2 novembre suivant. Il démissionna le 27 décembre 1830. Il est probable que l'ouvrage n'ai pas été emporté par Portalis et qu'il soit resté au ministère. Elégante reliure de l'époque.

        A Pilgrimage in Europe and America, leading to the Discovery of the Sources of the Mississippi and Bloody River; with a description of the Whole Course of the Former, and of the Ohio. [Two volumes].

      Printed for Hunt and Clarke, London 1828 - xxiii, 472 pp.; 545 pp. 8vo. Three quarter dark brown morocco over marbled boards, five raised bands decorated in gilt, black morocco lettering pieces, gilt volume numerals. Hardback. Illus. with engraved frontis, 3 plates, 2 folding plans, and large folding map of the Mississippi. Giacomo Costantino Beltrami was a naturalist and explorer who left Italy for Europe after a period of political persecution, then journeyed to America where he traveled from Pittsburgh down the Ohio and up the Mississippi to Ft. Anthony; then to Canada, down the Red River, across to the Missouri and down the Mississippi to New Orleans. For a while he had joined up with an expedition led by Major Stephen Long in 1823 but left to travel again on his own after relations with Long soured. Vol. II. is "almost entirely devoted to the author?s travels among the North-western Indians, of whom he gives some novel particulars. The narrations of what he witnessed are tinged with the peculiar glow of the author?s temperament. Beltrami must have moved in a gigantic world, if he saw external objects through the same media with which he viewed his own person and accomplishments," Field, Indian Bibliography, p. 28. The work was not well received. Sabin 4605. Field 111. Pilling: Proof Sheets, 340. Eberstadt 107-20. Howes B338. Wagner-Camp 26a: 2. Clark II: 182. Monaghan: French Travellers 178B. Larned 1591.
