         Physiologie du gout ou méditations de gastronomie transcendante; ouvrage théorique, historique et à l'ordre du jour, dédié aux gastronomes parisiens, par un professeur. ... 3e édition.

      Paris, Sautelet, Mesnier, 1829, 2 vol. in 8°, de 2ff. 410pp. & 2ff. 432pp., ill. de 2 front. litho par H. Monnier, demi-chagrin marron époque, dos lisse orné en long très lég. passé, rousseurs habituelles sinon bel exemplaire. 3e édition mais 1ere édition illustrée, et premier tirage des lithographies d'Henri Monnier. L'épicurien Brillat-Savarin voulait faire de l'art culinaire une véritable science. L'intérêt de ce classique réside dans la légèreté avec laquelle les questions culinaires sont présentées à la fois fort savamment et avec une ironie constante qui aère l'ouvrage. L'auteur passe tour à tour du facétieux à la description précise et évocatrice, en passant par l'aphorisme singulier. Le livre connut un succès immédiat, suscita l'enthousiasme de Balzac mais aussi la jalousie de certains comme Carême et le mépris de Baudelaire. ¶ Vicaire gastronomie p.117 - Bitting p.60 - Oberlé Fastes de Bacchus n°149 - Vicaire ill.

        Memoires de M. de Bourrienne, ministre d'etat sur Napoleon, 10 vols

      Paris: Chez Ladvocat, 1829. Book. Very Good. Hardcover. 3rd Edition. 10 gorgeous volumes complete, 6 dated 1829, 2 frp, volume one contains the eight page announcement of the publication of the first six volumes. Calf leather spines, six raised compartments, black leather spine titles, occasional rubbing to spine ends else VG, one a bit rubbed, some foxing to all, browned paper in gaps between sentences, French text, 3rd edn, outstanding work of Bonaparte's younger days in particular, many anecdotes to be used with verifiable caution. Major work for the Napoleonic epoch. A very attractive set for some historian's bookshelf. The author was educated at the military school of Brienne in Champagne along with Napoleon Bonaparte; and although the solitary habits of the latter made intimacy difficult, the two youths seem to have been on friendly terms. However, the stories of their very close friendship, as told in Bourrienne's memoirs, are open to suspicion. Leaving Brienne in 1787, and conceiving a distaste for the army, Bourrienne proceeded to Vienna. He was pursuing legal and diplomatic studies there, and afterwards at Leipzig, when the French Revolution broke out and went through its first phases. Not until the spring of 1792 did Bourrienne return to France; at Paris he renewed his acquaintance with Bonaparte. By 1795 Bonaparte was then second in command of the Army of the Interior and soon received the command of the Army of Italy. Bourrienne did not proceed with him into Italy, but was called there by the victorious general at the time of the long negotiations with Austria (May-October 1797), when his knowledge of law and diplomacy was useful in drafting the terms of the Treaty of Campo Formio (October 7). The following year he accompanied Bonaparte to Egypt as his private secretary, and left a vivid, if not very trustworthy, account of the expedition in his memoirs. He also accompanied him on the adventurous return voyage to Fréjus (September-October 1799), and was of some help in the affairs that led up to the coup d'état of Brumaire (November) 1799. He remained by the side of the First Consul in his former capacity, but in the autumn of 1802 incurred Bonaparte's displeasure, ostensibly because of questionable financial dealings. In the early spring of 1807, when directed by Napoleon to order a large number of military cloaks for the army, then in East Prussia, he found that the only means of procuring them expeditiously was to order them from England. After gaining a large fortune while at Hamburg, he was recalled to France in disgrace at the close of 1810. In 1814 he embraced the royal cause, and during the Hundred Days (1815) accompanied Louis XVIII to Ghent. The rest is of little concern to us with regard to this glimpse of Napoleon. .

        Forty Etchings, from Sketches made with the Camera Lucida, In North America, In 1827 and 1828.

      Edinburgh and London 1829 - First Edition, large 4to, folding hand-coloured engraved frontispiece map, 40 engraved plates on 20 sheets, minor water-staining on upper blank margins, later half calf over old marbled boards original burgundy morocco label to upper cover, spine gilt and slightly worn. Basil Hall, a captain in the Royal Navy, travelled extensively in the U.S. and Canada. Before leaving England he made the acquaintance of John James Audubon, who supplied him with letters of introduction in North America. Hall travelled down the St. Lawrence and in New England, down the Ohio and Mississippi to New Orleans, across to Savannah, and North along the Atlantic coast to Canada. Hall was hostile to slavery, and "his work contains many excellent descriptions of places and conditions that came under his observation" - Clark. Two camera Lucida drawings, printed on the recto of a leaf, face their accompanying descriptions on the verso of a preceding leaf. The folding map shows the U.S. West to Arkansas and Missouri, and North to Canada. After William Wollaston patented has camera lucida design in 1807, its potential was quickly exploited. Over time his design was refined and the camera lucida became easy to use. It had numerous applications. The camera lucida was employed by the sculptor Francis Chanytrey It had numerous applications. The camera lucida was employed by the sculptor Francis Chantrey, keen to obtain a quick and exact likeness of his subjects, by travellers such as William Bartlet who wanted to share with the public their accurate drawing of lands that were previously represented in a romantic idealised form, and by the medical profession who could obtain detailed scientific drawings of the body. Geologists used camera lucidas, which were easily transported, to produce accurate drawings as did archaeologists who could record their finds exactly as they had discovered them. It was particularly important in producing topographical drawings of America and employed by the controversial writer, Captain Basil Hall who published "Forty Etchings of America" which allowed the British and American public a view of a diverse range of subjects which included slavery. The American Exploring Expedition employed a team of artists equipped with camera lucida to produce images from around the Southern hemisphere. Their Anthropological drawings of Fijian chiefs and native American Indians have survived - along with snapshots of the ships' crews. Howes, H46; Clark III : 47.

Deutsche Erstausgabe des klassischen Werk der Geburtshilfe, nach dem Kupferstichwerk von Maygrier. - "Aber meinem in dem Vorworte ausgesprochenen Vorsatze, mich bei der Herausgabe dieses Werkes lediglich an das Orginal zu halten, bin ich nicht ganz nachgekommen; denn je mehr ich in der Bearbeitung weiter geschritten bin, um so innniger ward mir die Überzeugung, dass eine durchgehend statt findende Bearbeitung des Maygrier von wenig Nutzen sein könnte, da das Orginal, besonders vom praktischen Theile an, höchst flach und einseitig ist. Ich legte demnach schon vom fünften Abschnitte an das französische Werk gänzlich bei Seite, benutzte nur die Abbildungen, und schrieb einen ganzen neuen Text dazu, ohne indessen von der früheren Form abzuweichen. Um aber doch nicht ganz mein Versprechen ausser Augen zu setzen, eine Parallele zwischen der französischen und teutschen Geburtshülfe zu ziehen, so nahm ich Einzelnes, worin sich Maygrier von den teutschen Geburtshelfern unterscheidet, immer Rücksicht, und berührte dasselbe. (...) Auf diese Weise war es mir möglich, Kapitel mit aufzunehmen, die im französischen Originale gar nicht berührt sind, z.B. die künstliche Frühgeburt." Zit.a.

        Don Pápis de Bobadilla, ó sea, Defensa del Cristianismo y Crítica de la Seudo-Filosofía. Por Don Rafael José de Crespo, del Consejo de S. M. y Oidor de la Real Audiencia de Aragón.

      Zaragoza, por Polo y Monge, 1829. - Seis tomos en tres volúmenes en 8vo.; LXXII-216 pp. + 288 pp. + 305 pp. + XXXVI-292 pp. + 296 pp. + 324 pp. Ejemplar con ligerísimas trazas de polilla marginales en diversas partes que no afectan en absoluto la lectura. Encuadernación uniforme en pasta española, de la época, con dobles tejuelos, ligeramente fatigada. La rarísima novela aragonesa y quijotesca de intención política y moral, calificada de «vano esfuerzo», obra de un personaje apenas conocido hasta las últimas décadas, en las que han proliferado los estudios dedicados al mismo. Crespo, jurista notable, Catedrático de Legislación en la Universidad cesaraugustana, Oídor de la Real Audiencia y abogado en ejercicio permanente, amén de cultísimo lector, no es un escritor al uso, pero su interés radica precisamente en ello. Su honestidad pasa por el amor a su pueblo, Alfajarín «ese pueblo infernal», donde nació y murió, sujeto al poder feudal de la Baronía de Espés, uno de los últimos residuos de tal ejercicio dominical y señorial después de las Cortes de Cádiz, contra el que se rebelaron repetidamente sus connaturales en 1820 y 1830. La defensa de Alfajarín contra el poder de los Espés fue llevada en los Tribunales por Crespo en diversos pleitos con la Baronía por la posesión de las tierras, el pago injustificado de cargas y otras circunstancias

        Lafayette, an agitator for democracy and freedom long after the American and French Revolutions, uses his influence to obtain passports for exiled Spanish officers to enter France en route to Spain in order to fight against the absolutist monarch Ferdinand VII

      "Letter Signed, ""Lafayette,"" 1 page, 7.25"" x 8.5"", Paris, May 6, 1829, in French, concerning passports for exiled Spanish officers under the command of General José Maria de Torrijos y Uriarte who were opposed to the absolutist monarchy of Ferdinand VII. Expected folds, contemporary date-of-receipt stamp at upper right, else fine condition. A fascinating letter, underscoring his unwavering opposition to monarchial absolutism, Lafayette writes to the exiled Spanish General, then in exile in England, concerning the free passage of some of Torrijos' officers into France in order to renew their struggle in Spain. Lafayette writes in full (translated), ""I would not allow myself to add a new note to the one that the Minister of Foreign Affairs has been willing to receive, should not I have at this time the duty to comply as a simple messenger. General Corrijos [sic Torrijos], whom, after having lived for some time in Alençon [France] is now in England, has given me the responsibility to hand in to the Minister the report included herewith [not present]. He will find in it a very clear account of the facts and rights upon which about fifty Spanish officers founded their complaints. I do not doubt that justice will be dispenses to them by the Minister; and I would like very much that the answer from the French Minister of Justice, while in interim, will sort this affair out, that is valued as much, it seems to me, to our French honor, than the one of the claimants."" José Maria de Torrijos y Uriarte (1791-1831) was a Spanish military officer who first distinguished himself in the popular uprisings against Napoleon's invasion in 1808. Following the restoration of Ferdinand VII in 1814, Torrijos became military governor of Murcia, Cartagena and Alicante, but soon became involved with liberals bent on subsuming the monarchy under the 1812 Constitution of Cádiz. The authorities arrested Torrijos for his anti-monarchial activities in 1817, but was freed in 1820 when a military coup forced the king to recognize the constitution. However in 1822, France invaded at the behest of the Concert of Europe, which was uncomfortable with Spain's liberal government. In 1823 Torrijos surrendered his post at Cartagena to French forces and was exiled along with his loyal officers. He first travelled to France, where he first came into contact with Lafayette who did all in his power to assist him. However due to Louis XVIII's hostility to the Spanish liberals, Torrijos soon removed to London where he be began planning his return to Spain. The July Revolution (1830) and the installation of the ""Citizen-King"" Louis Phillippe (a move in part orchestrated by Lafayette) emboldened Torrijos and his followers to again attempt a move against Ferdinand VII. In the fall of 1831, with about sixty supporters funded in part by Lafayette, Torrijos travelled to Gibraltar via Paris and Marseilles from where he hoped to foment a rebellion. Unbeknownst to Torrijos, the Governor of Malaga, posing as a supporter, encouraged him to land along the Malaga coast where he assured the general that liberals would flock to his banner. Instead, the governor had Torrijos and his men arrested soon after their landing. He and his officers were summarily executed without trial on December 11 on the beach of San Andres in Malaga. "

        Brief mit eigenh. U.

      Berlin, 19. Mai 1829.. S. 4to. Doppelblatt.. An die Sopranistin Anna Pauline Milder-Hauptmann (1785-1838): "Ich finde auf Ihre Anzeige vom 14. d. M. nichts dagegen zu erinnern, daß die geistliche Musik, welche Sie zum Besten der durch Ueberschwemmung Verunglückten geben wollen, in der Marienkirche hieselbst aufgeführt werde". Anna Pauline Milder-Hauptmann wurde u. a. von Antonio Salieri im Gesang ausgebildet und von Emanuel Schikaneder gefördert, in dessen Theater an der Wien sie die Juno in Franz Xaver Süßmayrs "Spiegel von Arkadien" sang. 1807 wechselte sie an das Kärntnertortheater, wo sie bald eine der bewundertsten und erfolgreichsten Sängerinnen ihrer Zeit wurde. Neben Luigi Cherubini und Joseph Weigl komponierte auch Ludwig van Beethoven mit der Leonore eine Partie für sie; 1814 sang sie diese Partie in der Uraufführung des "Fidelio".

        Anatomie des formes extérieures du corps humain appliquée à la peinture, à la sculpture et à la chirurgie.

      Paris, Béchet, 1829. - In-8, (4), XXXIII, 363 pp., 3 planches h.t., veau blond aux armes de Pavé de Vandoeuvre, encadrement de filets à froid sur les plats, roulette dorée intérieure, plat inférieur partiellement insolé, rousseurs éparses, bel exemplaire. Edition originale d'un remarquable ouvrage d'anatomie artistique, novateur et ayant eu une profonde influence sur l'enseignement de cette discipline. Ce texte devait faire partie d'un vaste ouvrage, mais seule cette première partie (intitulée "Description des formes extérieures et de leur explication anatomique") a paru. Pierre Nicolas Gerdy (1797-1856), qui deviendra en 1833 professeur de pathologie externe à la Faculté de médecine de Paris, s'est servi des documents utilisés pour les cours particuliers qu'il donnait aux élèves de lEcole des Beaux-Arts. Son but était d'apprendre à voir à l'artiste, de lui faire comprendre les formes de la surface du corps "par le souvenir des parties cachées sous le voile qui les couvre". Gerdy compare l'anatomie à un verre grossissant, comparaison qui sera reprise par Richer en 1890. Il recense les différentes apparences corporelles et les analyse dans des oeuvres exposées au Louvre, à l'aide de notes critiques très importantes placées en bas de page. Gerdy précise ici certains détails anatomiques, auxquels son nom a été attaché : fossette sous-claviculaire, fer de lance, ligament, ligne, sillon latéral du ventre. Les planches représentent trois hommes dans la position du lanceur de disque. cf. Choulant, History and bibliography of anatomic illustration, p. 347 : "conscientious work, having particular reference to existing pictorial and sculptural representations"; Olry, Anatomical eponyms, p. 64 ; C. Barbillon, Les canons du corps humain au XIXe siècle, pp. 77-79 : "Le principal auteur qui chercha à définir en fonction des besoins des artistes un nouveau discours anatomique fut Pierre-Nicolas Gerdy qui, en 1829 publia une 'anatomie des formes' inachevée, mais déjà substantielle. L'originalité de l'ouvrage réside dans le fait que la connaissance anatomique n'est plus enseignée pour elle-même et en elle-même [.] . A partir de Gerdy, l'autonomie de l'anatomie artistique fait l'objet d'un consensus qui traverse le siècle." ; D. Rabreau & B. Tollon, Les progrès des arts réunis : 1763-1815, p. 350 : "La distinction décisive entre anatomie et morphologie ne fut pas fermement établie avant que P.-N. Gerdy ne publie son 'Anatomie des formes extérieures du corps humain appliquée à la peinture, à la sculpture et à la chirurgie', en 1829. » ; J.F.Debord, De l'anatomie artistique à la morphologie, In : L'âme au corps, Arts et Sciences, 1793-1993, pp. 106-107 ; M.
