      Zurich, F. S. Fussli (successeur de Keller & Fussli), 1829,. pt. in-12, oblong, brochure de 8 p. avec titre + 50 planches gravees (aquatinte, mises en couleurs) sur feuilles separees avec tranches dorees (11 x 8.5 cm) + 2 feuilles vierges avec timbre de l'editeur, emboitage original, legerement use sur les bords, petite dechirure dans un coin, sinon bon etat.. Deuxieme edition complete des 50 aquatintes exceptionnelles mises en couleurs a la main, gravees et dessinees par les freres Bodmer et S. Corrodi. Les magnifiques planches montrent plusieurs lieux touristiques de la Suisse, tels que: Chute du Rhin, Einsiedeln, Monument des Suisses a Lucerne, Hospice de N. D. a la neige au Rigi, L'Auberge du Rigi Kulm, Le Grutli, Le Pont du diable, L'Hospice au St- Gotthard, Les Iles Borromees, Glacier du Grindelwald, etc., etc. Comme la premiere edition de 1828, elle contient un livret de 8 pages avec la liste des planches. A noter que le graphiste, lithographe, dessinateur et peintre suisse Carl Bodmer accompagna en 1832 (age de 23 ans) le prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied en Amerique du Nord, ou il crea les celebres lithographies des Indiens, tres importantes pour toute recherche sur la culture americaine. Il est ainsi considere aux Etats-Unis comme un "great American painter". A son retour il s'installa a Paris et plus tard a Barbizon. C'est pourquoi il est aussi considere comme un peintre francais (de l'Ecole de Barbizon).Please notify before visiting to see a book. Prices are excl. VAT/TVA (only Switzerland) & postage.

        Amir Khan, and Other Poems: the remains of Lucretia Maria Davidson, who died at Plattsburgh, N.Y. August 27, 1825, aged 16 years and 11 months. With a biographical sketch, by Samuel F.B. Morse

      New York: G. & C. & H. Carvill, 1829. First edition. xxix, [31], 174 pp. 1 vols. 12mo. Contemporary calf and boards, worn and rubbed, small tear in spine. Some dampstaining to preliminaries, mostly to outer margin, endpapers somewhat spotted. Early owner's signature of "Jane Anna Gates" on the front pastedown. The Icon of the Romantic Poetess Above and beyond any question as to the merits of her poetry, the death of the American prodigy / poetess at "sixteen years and eleven months", the posthumous publication of her poems in this volume, the portrait of her given by Morse in his biographical sketch, and above all, a subsequent article by Robert Southey in the quarterly review, caught the imagination of critics and poets across the Atlantic, and contributed greatly to the developement of a conception of the Romantic poetess as sacrificial victim on the altar of her own genius. Southey's comparison of her with her boy counterpart, Thomas Chatterton, fit with the prevailing need, as did Morse's portrait of her physical attributes: "In person, Miss Davidson was possessed of great beauty; a high, open forehead, a soft, black eye, perfect symmetry of features, fair complexion, and luxuriant, dark hair." - p. xxvii.An important book in the development of the popular ideology of the "poetess" -- and now quite rare on the market.

        Political Sketches &c... by H.B

      1829-51. first edition. Revolutionary CaricaturesExceptionally Scarce With All Nine Volumes Plus Illustrative Key"H.B." [DOYLE, John]. Political Sketches &c. Thomas M'lean: London, 1829-51 [with] An Illustrative Key to the Political Sketches of H.B., From No. 1 to No. 600. London: Thomas M'lean: London, 1841. [and] An Illustrative Key to the Political Sketches of H.B., From No. 601 to No. 800. London: Thomas M'lean: London, 1844. (two volumes bound in one).A 'Subscribers' set with all of the plates hand colored.Nine large folio volumes (21 x 14 1/2 in; 580 x 369 mm). and two books in one octavo (8 5/8 x 56 1/4 in; 215 x 135 mm) volume (Illustrative Key). 882 (of 917 published) hand-colored lithographed plates, many with the small 'Subscribers Copy blind stamp, each window-pane mounted on heavy green/gray paper within an inked border, almost all plates captioned beneath plate with identification of personages. Supplemental Illustrative Key viii, 448; vi, [2], 213, [1, ad], pp., describing plates 1-600, 601-800, as issued. Lacking 35 plates otherwise complete with all nine lithographed title pages and printed contents pages.Nineteenth-century red half morocco, spines gilt decorated in compartments. Gilt stamp of New Club of Edinburgh to front covers. All edges gilt. Bookplates of New Club of Edinburgh to front paste-downs. Bindings expertly repaired and restored. Some very occasional light foxing, all plates untrimmed with full margins. Three leaves with small tears at bottom edge/corner not affecting plates. A wonderful set, the only colored 'Subscribers Copy' that we have ever seen.The largest and without question one of the most important series of political cartoons published in the nineteenth century, and the key visual record of the major and minor issues and personages on the contemporary British political stage; the art of political theater at its finest. For English graphic political history 1829-1851 one must rely on the drawings of "H.B." There are more than six hundred examples in the print room of the British Museum. Scarcely found with all nine volumes plus the supplementary Key; only three such copies have come to auction within the last thirty-five years, and none of these were hand-colored copies. OCLC and KVK locate only seven copies with all nine volumes and supplement but we are uncertain as to how many of these are actually colored 'Subscribers' copies.John Doyle (1797-1868), painter and caricaturist, studied drawing under an Italian landscape painter named Gabrielli, and in the Royal Dublin Society's schools. He was also a pupil of the miniature painter Comerford. In 1821 he came to London but although he occasionally exhibited at the Royal Academy, he was not entirely successful as a portrait painter. He subsequently turned his attention to lithography, and having in 1827 and 1828 produced some lithographed portraits with great success, was gradually led to begin the series known popularly as the caricatures of H.B. (a signature contrived by the junction of two J's and two D's). These came out in batches of four or five at a time, at irregular intervals, but during Parliamentary sessions at least once a month, and for many years were complimented by a semi-lead article in the Times explaining their meaning. The utmost pains were taken to preserve Doyle's anonymity, and with such success that almost to the last his identity was never revealed."You never hear any laughing at H.B.," wrote Thackeray in 1840, "his pictures are a great deal too genteel for that- polite points of wit, which strike one as exceedingly clever and pretty, and cause one to smile in a quiet, gentlemanlike kind of way." Other contemporaries strike a more enthusiastic note. Macaulay, writing to his sister in 1831, describes the delight he had derived from "the caricatures of that remarkably able artist who calls himself H.B." Wordsworth and Haydon were also warm in commending his work. "He has," said the latter, "an instinct for expression and power of drawing, without academical cant, I never saw before" (Journal, 29 Oct. 1831). Prince Metternich possessed his entire collection, and regarded them as most valuable records. Wilkie, Rogers, and Moore also thought very highly of them. John Doyle ?"came to the political scene at a moment when, for the first time in a century of caricature, there was no reigning artist: Cruikshank, who had succeeded Gillray, had turned from radical protest to illustration. Doyle?'s first prints appeared anonymously in 1827-8. From 1829 the monogram ?'HB?' concealed his identity, which remained a secret for years. His lithographed Political Sketches were finely drawn likenesses, with none of the distortion or vulgarity of the prints of the previous decades. The mild humour of his satires met with approval, as public taste veered to restraint and decorum. The series ran for twenty years, numbered to the final 917th print, and was issued with keys to identify the subjects.?" (Feaver, William. Masters of Caricature, p. 69).Doyle "revolutionized the art of caricature, concentrating mainly on politicians for his subjects. His work differed greatly from previous cartoonists such as Thomas Rowlandson (1756 - 1827) and James Gillray (1757 - 1815) who attempted to make their subjects look ugly and ridiculous. Doyle's pictures appeared in 'The Times' between 1829 and 1851. His drawings were always signed HB and at the time very few people knew his real name. Doyle's cartoons were daily commentaries of political events and were sometimes accompanied by an article explaining their meaning. John Doyle died on 2nd January 1868. One of his sons, Richard Doyle (1824 - 1883), was also a cartoonist. His other son, Charles, was the father of the writer, Arthur Conan Doyle (1859 - 1930), who created the fictional character Sherlock Holmes" (British Library of Political and Economic Science, http://library-2.lse.ac.uk/archives/handlists/Doyle/Doyle.html)."H.B.'s sketches…exhibit a vivid picture of the party politics of the period over which the series extend. The Duke of Wellington, Sir Robert Peel, and the other leaders of the time [including Lord Brougham, one of the leading progressive radicals of his time] stand out before us now as they appeared to their contemporaries. In the works of the older caricaturists likenesses were to some extent retained but the persons caricatured were usually depicted as monsters rather than as human beings. In the caricatures of H.B. the resemblance was perfect, and it was the position rather than the person that was distorted. There was plenty of satire but is was of a refined character" (Chamber's Encyclopaedia [1891], p. 767).Doyle's "chief merits are to be found in the facility with which he grasped an idea; the harmlessness and playfulness of his satire, which wrought a complete revolution in the style and manner of caricaturists; and above all in the excellence of his likenesses" (Everitt, p. 275)."Political Sketches by 'H. B.' (John Doyle) were the first examples of unexaggerated statement, and fair and decorous satire" (Encyclopaedia Britannica, 1911 Ed.)A golden opportunity to acquire the seldom available, overwhelming majority of the complete Political Sketches of this important, though now often neglected artist, and a matchless look at English political and art history.Cole and Hungerford, First Proofs of the Universal Catalogue of Books on Art, p. 767. Everitt, English Caricaturists and Graphic Humourists of the Nineteenth Century [1893], p. 254.

        A Catalogue of Manuscripts, in different Languages, on Theology; English and foreign history; Heraldry; Philosophy; Poetry; Romances; The Fine Arts (Including Calligraphy and some splendid Persian Drawings;) Sports; Alchemy; Astrology; Divinations; & C & C of various dates, from the Twelfth to the Eighteenth century : many of them upon vellum, and adorned with splendid illuminations to which is added a small collection of manuscripts in the Oriental languages; with an appendix containing a few printed books, some of them with manuscript notes and autographs of eminent persons, now selling (for ready money) at the prices affixed by John Cochran No 108, Strand (Savoy Steps)

      London: Catalogues to be had at the Place of Sale; of W. and D. Laing, and W. Tait, Edinburgh; M. Ogle, Glasgow; and Milliken and Son, Dublin, 1829. vi p., 1 l., 164 p. folding frontispiece and 5 other plates. 650 priced items. Printed by Ibotson and Palmer, printers, Savoy Street, Strand. 8vo. Bound in modern tree calf, gilt spine. Former library stamp to verso of the title. Very Fine. The first illustrated Bookseller's Catalogue Although earlier auction and bookseller's catalogues contained images, typically with a portrait of the collector or the dealer, Cochran's is the first to depict items offered for sale. The collection of manuscripts described here, dating from the 12th through the 18th century, was brought together by Cochran from libraries and collections across Europe and England, and span seven centuries. The line engravings illustrate some of the most valuable items offered in the catalogue, including the frontispiece, which depicts a painting prefixed to item 193, "A Series of Ducal Credentials and Instructions..." a sixteenth-century manuscript from Venice--the bookseller offers the copperplate used to render the engraving to the purchaser, if desired. Item 73, "a magnificent manuscript on vellum, executed expressly, in 1475... for the Duchess of Burgundy" is illustrated with a scene of Aubert the Scribe presenting his book to the Duke of Burgundy. Also illustrated are item 353, a fifteenth century manuscript of a French Romance in verse; item 354, a manuscript (1525) for the Duchess of Vendôme; and item 324, depicting a scene from Boethius' Consolation of Philosophy from a fifteenth century illuminated manuscript. The descriptions of the 650 lots are finely detailed and well contextualized. Among the few printed items described in the catalog, the "Biblia Pauperum" (item 505) stands out; one of only two copies known, Cochran tells us with unveiled pride that the copy herein described was acquired at a Paris auction some four years prior, where he outbid the Bibliothèque Royale. He closes his description thus "It only remains to know in which Library in this country a volume of such interest and rarity will find a place." An important landmark documenting the history of the book trade.

      Karlsruhe, 5. II. 1829.. 2 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 4to. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief).. An den Verleger Wilmans in Frankfurt: "Da ich keine sichere Aussicht habe daß die mir am 29 Jenner zugetheilte Zeichnung hier gestochen werden kann, so sende ich dieselbe beyfolgend wieder an Sie zurück. Mein Schwiegersohn Schnell der allerdings geneigt wäre diesen Gegenstand mit Geschmack zu bearbeiten, lebt seit dem letzten Nov. in seiner Vaterstadt Darmstadt. Ich konnte ihm allso [!] diese Arbeit nicht vorlegen; auch muß ich vermuthen, daß er im Laufe dieses Jahres wegen bestellter Sachen nichts weiteres annehmen kann [...] Ich habe mit hl. Prof. Frommel in Ihren Angelegenheiten gesprochen, und ich vermuthe, daß er nicht abgeneigt ist die Platte zu übernehmen [...]". - Christian Haldenwang war Schüler und langjähriger Mitarbeiter Christian von Mechels in Basel und übernahm 1796 als Meister der Aquatinta-Technik in Dessau Aufträge für die Chalkographische Gesellschaft. "1804 wurde er Hofkupferstecher in Karlsruhe. Haldenwang schuf vor allem Landschaftsstiche; als sein Hauptwerk gelten vier Blätter nach den Tageszeiten von Claude Lorrain" (DBE).

        Chart of part of New South Wales with plans of the harbours. Respectfully dedicated to John Oxley, Esq., Surveyor-General

      London: Joseph Cross, 1829. Large hand-coloured engraved map, 990 x 640 mm., dissected and backed on linen as issued; folding into an early binding of half blue grained calf, marbled sides; in very good condition. With an inset depicting Port Phillip. One of the great maps of New South Wales: this very fine and handsome map is notable for a series of important inset charts including Moreton Bay, Port Jackson, and Port Phillip. One of the most consulted of any of the Australian maps of this era, it is dedicated to John Oxley, then Surveyor General of New South Wales.The map was evidently a publishing success, as Cross printed several different versions in the period. The first version of the map was issued in 1826 and is easily recogniseable as it features a series of vignette views. In 1827 the basic map was reused but this time the vignettes were replaced by inset maps, and over ensuing years this version of the map was subtly updated and re-issued: this is the 1829 issue "corrected". Any issue is now of some rarity.The inset charts show: Moreton Bay, Port Macquarie, Port Stephens, Port Hunter, Broken Bay, Port Jackson, Botany Bay, Jervis Bay, Twofold Bay, Western Port, and Port Phillip. There is also an inset depiction of the entire Australian coastline. The map also prints a very detailed picture of the state of inland exploration, notably including the relatively recent discoveries of Hume and Hovell.The London publisher Cross was responsible for any number of important publications relating to Australia in the 1820s and 1830s, and was perhaps the most influential promoter of the colonies at that time.

        Manuscript - Album amoricum - 29 pencil and ink Drawings

      England, 1829. England and Wales, 1829-1834. Album amoricum containing 29 pencil and ink drawings, 12 of which are in colour, as well as poetic works. 8vo. 38 pages in manuscript, many of which are drawings. Entries are mostly initialled and dated. Leather boards with tooling and gilt, printed title page. Volume measures approximately 20 x 16 cm. Minor wear to boards, split internally at hinge yet remaining solid, otherwise in very good condition, clean and bright, a most unique and appealing volume. A collective work of exceptional drawings with vibrant colour and remarkable depth, made by an intimate group of uniquely artistic contributors. The gifted authors and artists number approximately ten, the most frequent identifying themselves as R.M.G. and W. Price. Three illustrations of notable talent are ambiguously initialled J.Y.R., whom certainly possessed the skill of a professional artist. Most uncommon is a tinted sketch drawing of a human skull to illustrate a pensive poem about those who fought and lost their lives in the Battle of Waterloo in 1815, titled "Lines on a Scull (brought form the Field of Waterloo]." We also find a sketch of Napoleon's tomb accompanied by a poem, and followed by "a translation of the introductory stanzas of an unpublished poem by Lucien Bonaparte entitle The Cirneide..." [Lucien Bonaparte, 1st Prince of Canino and Musignano, is a younger brother of Napoleon Bonaparte] Two remarkably charming images illustrate childhood creativity as young boys imitate a marching band and make musical instruments from simple household items. Indicative of the contributor's current surroundings and historic nobility, pencil sketches depict among other things, the Conway (Conwy) Castle and suspension bridge in Wales, Kirkstall Abbey in Leeds, and a covered boat floating on the Regent's Canal in north central London - its first section from Paddington to Camden Town, having opened in only a few years prior in 1816. Other items of interest are the exquisite coloured and gilded butterflies, a brief musical score, a poem by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe about birds, and drawings of ancient castles including a harbour fortress. The album amicorum, or book of friends, a precursor to modern-day autograph books, originated in German and Dutch linguistic regions (possibly originating in Wittenberg) in the middle of the sixteenth century. By the end of the century, they were common throughout Germany among students and scholars. Academics tended to retain the books for many years and gather the correspondence of fellow intellectuals with whom they associated; therefore the books began to function not only as sentimental artefacts but also as a crude form of scholarly credentials, a form of the modern "list of references". In the 18th century they came into use among members of the burgeoning middle class. This new wave of autograph curators included women as well as men. Professors and fellow students made contributions to these albums, including inscriptions and illustrations, which were often by significant scholars or professional artists of the time. A typical volume began with a formal greeting to the album's owner or, in the case of English volumes, an address to its contributors, sometimes also including a heraldic shield or emblematic illustration by the signator. Contributions usually contained drawings, personal messages, and small pieces of verse. Inscriptions were often a few pages in length. Artistic autographers sketched full-page drawings, while less conventional entries included engravings or mementos such as embroidery, paper silhouettes, locks of hair, or pressed flowers.. Very Good.

        Memoir, Correspondence, and Miscellanies, from the Papers of Thomas Jefferson (4 volumes)

      Charlottesville, VA: F. Carr, and Co, 1829. First edition edited by Thomas Jefferson Randolph. Hardcover. 466; 500; 519; 532pp. Octavo [23.5 cm] 1/4 brown cloth with gray paper over boards and printed paper title labels on the spines, as originally issued. Top edges rough-trimmed; other edges deckled. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Thomas Jefferson in volume 4. Indexed. Good only. The extremities are mildly rubbed. Most of the covers have large, but light damp stains. The paper title labels are a bit chipped at the edges, and there are several small splits in the cloth along the joints. The pages are foxed, and have sporadic light tide marks. The largest tide marks measure 4" wide by 1" deep. A couple of the volumes have faint contemporary notations on the preliminary pages. The text blocks are cracked multiple times. The text block of volume 1 is beginning to pull away from the backstrip. Volume 1 is missing p. 193/94. Volumes 2-4 each have a handful of pages which are just hanging on by a thread. There is a small loss from the front flyleaf of volume 3. With a facsimile of the rough draught of the Declaration of Independence at the rear of volume 4. A set in original bindings of the first publication of Jefferson's letters following his death, published in Charlottesville, and edited by Thomas Jefferson's grandson, in an attempt to take control of his grandfather's legacy. This edition included a small portion of his actual letters, and was carefully edited by Jefferson's family, omitting subjects which were considered controversial.

        Geschichte und Statut der Rosen-Ritterschaft.

      (Berlin, wohl Juli 1829).. 8vo (20 : 12 cm). 20 S. Bedruckter Original-Umschlag unter einem Halbleinenband des späteren 19. Jahrhunderts.. Außerordentlich seltener Separatdruck der Seiten 373-392 von Herzog Karls um 1830 erschienenen "Erinnerungen an Berlin". Der Abschnitt beschließt dort die Beschreibung des Festspiels "Der Zauber der weissen Rose", von ihm am 13. Juli 1829 zum Geburtstagsbesuch von Zarin Alexandra Feodorowna, der vormaligen Prinzessin Charlotte von Preußen, im Potsdamer Neuen Palais inszeniert. Der Reimtext stellt eine Allegorie auf die Jugend der preußischen Königskinder, ihr Heranwachsen und ihre Vermählungen dar. Im Mittelpunkt steht "Blancheflour", Charlottes Identifikationsfigur aus Fouques "Zauberring", einer Lieblingslektüre der Geschwister. Wir vermuten einen Vorabdruck für den engsten Hofkreis zum Fest selbst. Er weist eigene Paginierung und Bogennorm auf, der Titel findet sich nur auf dem Umschlag, noch nicht am Textkopf. Die doppelte Fußnote auf p. 391 der "Erinnerungen" fehlt noch, daher läuft der bis dahin parallele Satz ab p. 17 des Heftes etwas abweichend. Textvarianten sind nicht festzustellen. Der Roseton des Papiers macht den Anlaß augenfällig, weißes hätte keinen Effekt gemacht. - Heftung brüchig, kleine Tintenflecken am Rückumschlag, Papiertönung etwas verblaßt.

        Drei Mädchen aus Goßfelden bei Marburg in ihrer Tracht (Hinterländer Tracht).

      . Radierung, 1829, auf Velin. 22,2:19,7 cm. Zwei kleine Braunflecken und kleiner Einriß im Unterrand. Literatur: Stoll 163, II (von II), vollendet.. Grimm hielt sich 1829 in Marburg, Großfelden und Amöneburg auf. Er skizzierte wahrscheinlich die Mädchen wegen ihrer ortsunüblichen Tracht: Die Haubenformen verweisen sie in die Gegend um Biedenkopf und Gladenbach (Hinterland); vgl. hierzu Album Marburg, S. 89. Ludwig Emil Grimms Maxime, treu nach der Natur zu zeichnen, und seine besondere Liebe zum Detail sind bei der Darstellung der Trachten von besonderem Vorzug.Der vor allem als Radierer tätige Grimm war 1804-1808 Schüler der Kasseler Kunstakademie bei Gottlieb Kobold (1769-1809), Andreas Range (1762-1828) und Ernst Friedrich Ferdinand Robert (1763-1843). Durch seine Brüder Jacob und Wilhelm Grimm wurde er mit Clemens Brentano (1778-1842) und Achim von Arnim (1781-1831) bekannt, mit denen er zusammenarbeitete. Wohl 1807 lernte Grimm Bettine Brentano (1785-1859) kennen, von der er zahlreiche Porträts anfertigte. In November 1808 zog er nach Landshut zu Brentano und dessen Schwager Friedrich Carl von Savigny (1779-1861). Auf ihre Vermittlung ging er nach München und erlernte Kupferstechen bei Carl Ernst Christoph Heß (1755-1828). Zugleich studierte er an der Münchner Akademie unter Andreas Seidl (1760-1834). Unterbrechung des Studiums 1814 durch Teilnahme an den Freiheitskriegen. Mit Georg Brentano reiste er im Frühjahr 1816 nach Italien, wo er zwei Monate blieb. 1817 kehrte er nach Kassel zurück. 1824 reiste Grimm zum ersten Mal nach Willingshausen und wurde zum Mitbegründer der Willingshäuser Malerkolonie, eine der ersten Malerkolonien Deutschlands. 1832 wurde er an die Kasseler Kunstakademie als Lehrer berufen.

Besonders interessant sind seine Untersuchungen über die Übertragung von erkranktem wie z.B. "Einspritzung von leprösem Katzenblut in eine andere Katze".

        GUIDA DEL FORESTIERE PER LA CITTÀ E IL CONTADO DI LUCCA. Rifatta dal Marchese Antonio Mazzarosa, Presidente delle Belle Arti.

      presso Iacopo Balatresi 1829 Cm.14,8x9,3. Pg.(8),224. Legatura moderna in marocchino rosso scuro, con fregi in oro ai piatti e titoli e filetti in oro al dorso a quattro nervature. Esemplare in barbe, ben conservato salvo qualche marginale fioritura. Fuori testo una bella pianta di Lucca in formato cm.27,2x33,4, incisa da Carlo Verico su disegno del Nerici, e cinque incisioni, sempre del Verico ma su bozzetti di Angiolo Della Valle, raffiguranti Piazza San Martino, Piazza San Michele, Avanzi dell'Anfiteatro romano, Bagni alla Villa, Avanzi dei bagni romani a Massaciuccoli. Opera molto rara, che può considerarsi come la seconda edizione della guida del Trenta (Lucca, Baroni, 1820) e la prima di quella del Mazzarosa (Lucca, Giusti, 1843). Il Lucchesini, molto critico circa l'opera del Trenta, la definisce "al tutto nuova, benché per soverchia modestia il Mazzarosa dica nel titolo di aver soltanto riformato quella del Trenta". Ne circolarono all'epoca pochissimi esemplari arricchiti della pianta della città del Nerici e delle altre cinque incisioni del Verico, ma il grosso della tiratura fu distribuito privo di carte.

The preliminary leaves provide a biographical account of Lauwers. "Une note du catalogue Borluut de Noortdonck, no. 5339, nous fournit les détails suivants: M. Lauwers, ayant peu de fortune, s'était imposé les plus rudes privations, afin de pouvoir enrichir de temps en temps sa bibliothèque, choisie avec beaucoup de soin et dont les exemplaires étaient tous supérieurement conditionnés. Il passait l'hiver sans feu et sans lumière, et ne dépensait que deux sous par jour pour sa nourriture, afin d'être à même de satisfaire sa passion pour les livres. Lorsque tous ses moyens pécuniaire eurent été épuisés, ce martyr de la bibliomanie aima mieux se laisser mourir de faim que de se détacher, pour en faire de l'argent, de quelques-uns de ses livres chéris. Il mourut en 1829 à l'âge de 74 ans."-Gustave Brunet, Dictionnaire de Bibliologie Catholique, col. 596. A fine copy. .
