        The Complete Vocal Instructor. Dedicated to the Ladies of Baltimore

      Geo. Willig Jr., Baltimore 1828 - A scarce and early American musical instructor, written by Henri-Noel Gilles, brother of Peter Gilles, Jr, one of the original twelve directors of the Musical Fund Society of Philadelphia. Published by George Willig, Jr., one of the earliest musical publishers in America. "A new crop of emigrant musicians arriv(ed) after the War of 1812.Significant among these latest newcomers were. Denis-Germain Etienne, a prize-winning graduate of the Paris Conservatoire, and his equally distinguished compatriots the Gilles, father and two sons, all of whom arrived from France about 1815. They presented a series of fashionable "Academic and Didactical Concerts," highly successful despite their forbidding name. Notwithstanding their extraordinary success, about 1818 they disbanded - the 2 Peter Gilleses to settle in Philadelphia, Henri-Noel in Baltimore, and Etienne to remain in New York, where he assumed a leading position in the music community." (Lawrence, Vera Brodsky. Strong on Music: Resonances, 1836-1850, p.xl.) "Gilles, who based his Vocal Instructor on the principles of composition and vocal instruction which he had learned at the Paris Conservatory, specifically attributed his discussion of the principles of melody to Antonin Reicha, whose Traite de Melodie (1814) Gilles claimed to be "The first treatise on melody, distinct from harmony.that has ever been composed."

        Histoire des émigrés français depuis 1789 jusqu'en 1828.

      Paris, L. F. Hivert, 1828, 3 vol. in 8°, de 4ff. XLVII-368pp., 2ff-420pp., et 2ff-385pp., index en fin de chaque vol., demi-veau brun époque, dos lisse orné, deux coiffes sup. lég. restaurées et rousseurs, sinon bon exemplaire. La première histoire générale de l'émigration. L'auteur épouse complètement la cause des émigrés. Il écrit sans archives, mais a recueilli beaucoup de témoignages de contemporains ayant vécu l'émigration. Son étude est orientée vers la vie des princes, délaissant ainsi la vie quotidienne des émigrés, c'est donc une vision partiale et partielle mais cependant très documentée.

        Itinerario para saver las distancias, caminos cerros, rios y demas desde Tampico, Turpan y Marina Vieja para Mejico, Queretaro, S. Luis Potosi Aguayo y otros puntos. Con expression de los Fuertes y Fuerzas q. se encuentran [with] Ytinerarios dedicados al Exmo. Sr. Cap. Gral D. Francisco Dionisio Vives, por el Brig. Joaquin de Arredondo.

      A remarkable pair of manuscripts, containing a detailed route between the cities of Tampico, Queretaro, Marina Vieja, San Luis Potosi, and Aguayo, in Mexico; the second Ytinerario is signed at the by Joaquin de Arredondo at La Habana, and dedicated to Francisco Dionisio Vives (1755 - 1840), Governor and Captain General of Cuba from 1823 to 1832. Arredondo (1776 - 1837) was a Spanish and Mexican colonial officer and soldier, son to an important colonial Spanish officer, Nicolas de Arredondo, Governor of Cuba. Arredondo served during the last decades of Spanish rule in Mexico, as Infantry Commander in Veracruz, Governor of Nuevo Santander, and participated actively in suffocating the first Texas revolution against the Spanish. His command would be remembered for his persecution of insurgents, and the campaigns against Miguel Hidalgo (1811); his efficacy gained him favor, and was appointed Commander of the Provincias Internas (modern Coahuila, Texas, and Nuevo Leon), period under which Arredondo got acquainted with the Apaches, and Comanches, and suffocated the Texas revolution, with extreme prejudice. By 1821, Mexico had gained its independence, leaving Arredondo free of his command -although he tried to keep it by swearing fealty to the new Republic. This Derrotero is signed from Havana, the site of his retirement, probably compiled during his period as colonial officer in Mexico and Texas, where he enjoyed a privileged position as to routes knowledge. Each manuscript is preceded by a title, with a foliation on top left "Num 4º" and "Num 5º" respectively.

        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

      London: printed for Hunt and Clarke, 1828. First edition in English of the author's La decouverte des sources du Mississippi (1824), 2 vols., 8vo, pp. lxxvi, 472, [1]; [2], 54 (i.e. 545), [5]; portrait frontis, 2 engraved folding plans, large folding map of the length of the Mississippi, and 3 engraved plates of Indian ornaments; plates a bit spotted, but generally a very good, bright copy in gilt-stamped green morocco, a.e.g. Volume I contains an account of the author's travels in England, Germany, France and Italy. Sabin 4605 (erroneously calling for only 1 plan): "The author accompanied Major Long in his second expedition, who remarks: An Italian whom we met at Fort St. Anthony [i.e. Fort Snelling] attached himself to the expedition, and accompanied us to Pembina. He has recently published a book which we notice merely on account of the fictions and misrepresentations which it contains. The Revue encyclopedique (1826) criticized the work severely, and doubted the discovery. The author replied in a Lettre sur la decouverte d'un manuscript mexicain, which was printed...in the English edition of his Pilgrimage." Howes B-338; Clark II, 182; Wagner-Camp 26a.2; Pilling, Algonquian, p. 42; Field 111: "Volume II is almost entirely devoted to the author's travels among the Northwestern Indians, of whom he gives some novel particulars. The narratives 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."

Grolier American 100, 34) "Set in 1757, during the French and Indian wars, The Last of the Mohicans established Natty Bumppo (called “Hawkeye” in this novel) as one of the immortal figures of American literature and indeed of the American imagination. Like the magnificent landscape of forests and waterfalls in which he moves, Natty is here restored to the full vigor of an earlier period of life. With his role as frontier scout and his hunting outfit which combines white and native elements, he appears to inhabit a liminal space between the culture of his origin and the world of his friends, the native warriors Chingachgook and his son Uncas, the last Mohican of the title."

Within a few months John Campbell MacDougall, manager of the Tasmanian Brewery, had purchased the newspaperfrom Howe, and he became its editor and publisher-proprietor. The copy of the March 21 1828 issue we offer here is the subscriber copy of the significant early Van Diemen's Land colonist, the public servant Peter Archer Mulgrave. Mulgrave had arrived in Hobart Town in 1821 to take up the position of superintendent of schools in Van Diemen's Land. He later became a magistrate, coroner and superintendent of police at Port Dalrymple, and also acted as superintendent of schools at Launceston. During 1828, when he received this issue of the Tasmanian, Mulgrave was superintendent of police at Launceston. The following year Lieutenant-Governor Arthur would appoint him chief police magistrate of the colony. Atax on newspapers of 2d per sheet was introduced by Lieutenant-Governor Arthur on 20 October 1827. It remained in force for only two years, being discontinued on October 17 1829.

Exemplaire de la Bibliothèque Chodron de Courcel, avec le nom "J.Chodron" frappé en queue. Edition originale rare avec le 2e volume paru 2 ans après. A la suite d'une série d'observations en Europe, Lucas publie un imposant ouvrage très documenté sur les différents systèmes pénitentiaires. En 1830 il est nommé par Guizot au poste d'inspecteur général des prisons poste qu'il occupera pendant 35 ans. Cette même année il publia séparément une "conclusion générale" de son ouvrage sous forme de pétition servant à défendre sa réforme devant les chambres (cf. avis de l'éditeur), elle n'est pas jointe ici. Il va consacrer sa carrière à trois grandes réformes: l'abolition de la peine de mort, la théorie de l'emprisonnement préventif, répressif et pénitentiaire, et enfin la civilisation de la guerre. Il militera toute sa vie pour le système américain dit d'Auburn (N.Y.) avec isolement nocturne et travail silencieux en commun le jour, s'opposant ainsi au système de Tocqueville prônant l'isolement total inspiré des Quakers. Il demandera aussi la suppression des bagnes métropolitains et leur remplacement par la réclusion dans des grandes maisons centrales, mais ne put empêcher la création de colonies pénitentiaires. Il est aussi à l'origine des colonies agricoles, comme celle de son ami Demetz à Mettray.

        A Brief Account of the Execution of the Six Militia Men!!

      1828. Philadelphia: Democratic Press, 1828. Philadelphia: Democratic Press, 1828. Anti-Jackson Broadside from the 1828 Presidential Race [Broadside]. [Jackson, Andrew (1767-1845)] [1828 Presidential Campaign]. A Brief Account of the Execution of the Six Militia Men!! [Philadelphia: Democratic Press, 1828]. 18-1/2" x 10 1/4" broadside with untrimmed edges, text in three columns below headline and woodcut image of six coffins. Moderate toning, light foxing and a few faint dampstains, three tiny scuffs with minor loss to text, mended on verso with archival tape. Item hinged to archival-quality cloth-covered illustration board. $3,750. * This is one of a series of broadsides attacking candidate Andrew Jackson for an incident that occurred during the War of 1812. In 1815 Jackson ordered the execution of six soldiers who tried to leave the service shortly before the conclusion of their three-month enlistment term. They were condemned as deserters and executed by firing squad in Nashville, Tennessee. Many thought execution was unfair, a classic case of a punishment that did not fit the crime. Jackson was running mainly on the strength of his war-hero resume, so broadsides such as this one were intended to undermine this reputation and to show him as a cruel individual. As we know, the strategy failed. Jackson defeated John Quincy Adams. This appears to be an unrecorded broadside. Shaw & Shoemaker records a later issue of this broadside, with the same title, entry 32473, but it is in four columns and has additional text dated 20 January 1828.

An explanatory note about the poem in a contemporary hand is tipped to the top margin of the manuscript. A jovial poem written by poet Bernard Barton (1784-1849) to his friend Charles Lamb on the occasion of his presenting Lamb with his recent book, A New Year's Eve and Other Poems (Hatchard, 1828): "My friend, I send thee here a book / on which I doubt thy taste will look / With half a condemning eye: Its frontispiece! and dedication! / And, worthier if vituperation, Friend Martin's Eulogy!"

The poem ends with the lines: "And differ as in taste we may / Believe me to remain always / Thy faithful friend - B. Barton." Recent provenance: Halsted B.

        Autograph Letter, Signed ("Walter Scott"), to Allan Cunningham

      Abbotsford, [Scotland] 1828 - 2 pp. pen and ink on bifolium with integral address leaf, red wax seal. 1 vols. 4to. Scott on Wordsworth. Scott writes to the poet Allan Cunningham, offering a strong opinion on the defects of Wordsworth's poetry: "Wordsworth fails in receiving the universal suffrage he merits because his poetry is too subtle and metaphysical in the idea & too blunt in the expression. He thinks like a profound philosopher often when he uses the language of common even vulgar life." This critique goes right to the heart of Wordsworth's poetic vision and the Romantic project as expressed in the Preface to Lyrical Ballads - "to choose incidents and situations from common life, and to relate or describe them, throughout, as far as was possible in a selection of language really used by men."Scott introduces the example of Wordsworth to contrast with Cunningham's own poetry, which Scott believes errs in the opposite direction, towards an overabundance of poetic language. He finds in it "a redundancy of fancy which outstrips the colder comprehension of most of your readers and which leads to an expenditure of ornament, which like too many rich trappings on a fine horse rather divert the attention from his genuine points of natural excellence." Scott belatedly concedes that authors should refrain from criticizing each other ("of a surety criticism is a thing to be eschewed betwixt two authors") and admits that it is only his own loss of poetic inspiration that has turned him to such criticism ("I am almost in the predicament Dryden speaks of when he says-the damnation of a poet is the generation of a critic").Cunningham (1784-1842) was a former stonemason's apprentice with a talent for imitating old Scottish airs. The inclusion of some of his originals in Robert Hartley Cromek's collection Remains of Nithsdale and Galloway Song led to a friendship with Scott. Grierson, ed.

        Histoire naturelle des poissons

      Paris, F.G. Levrault [later: Pitois-Levrault; Pitois; P. Bertrand], 1828-1849. 22 volumes. 4to (25.4 x 21.0 cm). With 657 engraved plates, on 622 sheets, of which 587 beautifully hand-coloured and 70 plain. Later uniform navy buckram with gilt lettered spines.l The rare large paper issue of the most important iconography on fishes published in the 19th century, if not of all time. The work is usually found in 8vo with either plain or coloured plates. "Nearly all that was known about fishes during the first half of the nineteenth century was summarized by Georges Léopold Chrétien Frédéric Dagobert Cuvier (1769-1832), and his pupil and successor, Achille Valenciennes (1794-1865), in the monumental 'Histoire Naturelle des Poissons'. ... (It) contains descriptions of 4,514 nominal species, the greater portion, approximately two-thirds, written by Valenciennes after the death of Cuvier in 1832" (T. W. Pietsch). Nevertheless, Cuvier remained quoted as co-author. The preface of volume 9 contains Cuvier's eulogy by Valenciennes. "...To-day the work of Cuvier and Valenciennes is indispensable to systematic ichthyology ... In many parts of the world people assisted Cuvier with notes, manuscripts, and particularly specimens. For many years the Jardin des Plantes was the center where all ichthyological materials were deposited. Thus, Cuvier was able to bring together the richest and largest contemporary collection of fishes. Althogether, his vast communication network, huge world-wide collections, and extensive ichthyological library, made Paris the center of ichthyology and Cuvier the foremost ichthyologist in the world..." (T. W. Pietsch, in Archives of Natural History, volume 12). The number of species that are regarded as valid today, is immense. The plates are in the realm of the very best ever made; no ichthyological work equals the delicacy of colouring and precision of engraving. The plates of volumes 19 and 20 are not coloured; those in volume 6 are on smaller sheets, mounted to match; the smaller plate 245 is probably from another, octavo, copy. A complete collation is available upon request. Regarding text and plates this set is complete. This set is very reasonably priced as the text and plates are partly seriously affected by foxing. Generally, the text leaves are more affected than the plates; some sections and volumes are quite clean. Cat. BM(NH), p. 411; Dean I, p. 287; Nissen SFB, 46; Nissen ZBI, 1017.

        3 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift u. 2 eigenh. Gedichte.

      Zus. 9 S. (Briefe) u. 7 S. (Gedichte), 8. Bedini wurde als Spross der bekannten aus Ostra stammenden Bedini Familie geboren [...]. Als jüngster von sieben Söhnen, wurde Bedini für eine kirchliche Karriere bestimmt. Sein Vater meldete den Jungen im Priesterseminar von Senigallia an, wo Bedini am 20. Dezember 1828 die Priesterweihe empfing. In den folgenden Jahren war er Kanoniker an der Kathedrale von Senigallia. Dank einflussreicher Freunde, unter denen sich auch der gleichfalls aus Senigallia stammende Giovanni Maria Mastai Ferretti, der spätere Papst Pius IX., befand, wurde er 1838 in den diplomatischen Dienst der Kurie berufen. Hier wurde er zunächst als Sekretär von Lodovico Altieri, dem Erzbischof von Ephesos und Nuntius in Österreich tätig. 1845 wurde Altieri, der zwischenzeitlich einige Erfahrungen in der Diplomatie gesammelt hatte, nach Rom beordert. Dort wurde er am 21. April 1845 von Papst Gregor XVI. zum Kardinal berufen und mit dem Amt des Apostolischen Protonotars betraut. Damit war Bedinis Tätigkeit als Sekretär Altieris beendet. Seine erste selbstständige Mission führte Bedini von Oktober 1845 bis August 1847 nach Brasilien, wohin er als Internuntius entsandt wurde. Dort arbeitete er vornehmlich auf eine Verbesserung der Lebensbedingungen der deutschen Einwanderer hin. Bei dieser Gelegenheit versuchte er auch Protestanten für die katholische Kirche zu gewinnen. Zu gleicher Zeit wie Bedini hielt sich auch Giuseppe Garibaldi in Südamerika auf. Hieraus ergaben sich Kontakte, die in einem Brief Garibaldis an Bedini gipfelten, in dem Garibaldi bat, dem Papst mitzuteilen, dass sein Schwert und seine Italienische Legion jederzeit für das geliebte Heimatland und die Kirche zur Verfügung stünden, wie es die unsterbliche und ewig neue gemeinsame Religion einfordere. Er sei sich jedoch darüber im Klaren, dass der Thron Petri auf Fundamenten stehe, die nicht von Menschenhand erschüttert werden könnten. Bedini nahm den Brief dankend entgegen, doch wurde Garibaldis Offerte in Rom nicht angenommen. Als Bedini 1848 nach Rom zurückkehrte wurde er Assistent des Kardinals Giacomo Antonelli, der zu dieser Zeit die Stellung eines Außenministers des Kirchenstaats innehatte. Von März bis November 1848 folgte Bedini dem Papst im Gefolge der Revolution von 1848 ins Exil nach Gaeta. In dieser Zeit vermochte Garibaldi, den Widerwillen der Römer gegen Napoléon III., dessen Truppen dem Papst zu Hilfe kamen, auszunutzen und unterstützte das Triumvirat aus Giuseppe Mazzini, Aurelio Saffi und Carlo Armellini, welches der kurzlebigen römischen Republik vorstand. In der Folge der Rückkehr des Papstes nach Rom war Bedini von 1849 bis 1852 wieder als päpstlicher Nuntius tätig. In dieser Zeit wurde er als Legat und Botschafter nach Bologna entsandt. Gerade zu Beginn seiner Arbeit in Bologna wurde der von den Österreichern bei Comacchio gefangen genommene italienische Patriot Ugo Bassi in die Stadt gebracht und dort schließlich am 8. August 1849 erschossen. Viele Anhänger der italienischen Patrioten warfen Baldini vor, dass er nichts unternommen habe, um Bassi zu retten. Dabei ließen sie wohl außer acht, dass Bedini ohnehin nur äußerst wenig Einfluss auf die Entscheidungen der Österreicher hätte ausüben können. Am 15. März 1852 wurde Bedini zum Titularerzbischof von Thebae ernannt. Drei Tage später erhielt er von Kardinal Luigi Lambruschini den Auftrag, sich als päpstlicher Nuntius nach Brasilien zu begeben. Die Einreise nach Brasilien bleib ihm jedoch wegen einer dort gerade wütenden Pestepidemie verwehrt, so dass er sich statt dessen in die Vereinigten Staaten begab und so der erste päpstliche Nuntius in den USA wurde. Während seines gesamten Aufenthaltes in den USA wurde Bedini von italienischen Patrioten unter der Führung des ehemaligen Priesters Alessandro Gavazzi wegen seiner angeblichen Beteiligung an der Hinrichtung Bassis verfolgt. Es wurden sogar gegen Bedini gerichtete Proteste auf öffentlichen Plätzen organisiert. Nach einem gewalttätigen Protestakt in Cincinnati verhaftete man indes die Rädelsführer und wies sie aus den USA aus. Die restliche Zeit in den USA konnte Bedini sodann in relativer Ruhe verbringen. 1856 wurde er bei seiner Rückkehr nach Italien zum Generalsekretär der Kongregation für die Evangelisierung der Völker ernannt und im März 1861 zum Bischof von Viterbo und Toscanella geweiht. Bei seinem Einzug in Viterbo am 8. Mai 1861 wurde er von der Bevölkerung und vom Klerus herzlich begrüßt und durch die festlich illuminierten Straßen der Stadt zur Kathedrale geleitet. Am 27. September 1861 wurde Bedini zum Kardinalbischof von Santa Maria sopra Minerva geweiht. Bedini verstarb plötzlich und unerwartet am Morgen des 6. September 1864 im Alter von 59 Jahren, als er vermutlich einen Schlaganfall erlitt. In der Stadt Viterbo herrschte ob der Todesnachricht große Trauer. Obwohl sich viele Gäste in der Stadt befanden, die an einem Fest zu Ehren der Heiligen Rosa teilnehmen wollten, wurde dieses Fest abgesagt. Bedini wurde in der Kathedrale von Viterbo in einem Marmorgrabmal in der Nähe der heiligen Rosa und seines Vorgängers bestattet (Wikipedia). - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. -
