        Le règne animal distribué d'après son organisation, pour servir de base à l'histoire naturelle des animaux et d'introduction à l'anatomie comparée

      Paris, Déterville, 1829-1830, in-8, 5 volumes, 20 planches gravées sur cuivre au tome III, demi-basane verte, dos lisse et fileté, Rare. 20 planches gravées sur cuivre d'après Laurillard. Exemplaire enrichi d'une planche d'erpétologie ajoutée au tome II, provenant du Dictionnaire des sciences naturelles (Hippolyte Cloquet Planches, Seconde partie, Zoologie, erpétologie fossile : ichtyosaurus et plesiosaurus). Deuxième édition de cet ouvrage qui pose les fondements de l'anatomie comparée. Il est le fruit de tout une vie d'étude des animaux vivants et fossiles. La première édition fut publiée en 1817, chez le même éditeur. Pierre Latreille collabora avec Cuvier à la classification des crustacés, arachnides et insectes. Grâce à l'importance et la qualité de son travail d'observation, de description et de classification en histoire naturelle, Cuvier pose les bases d'une science systématique en Anatomie Comparée. Pour la première fois, on applique une telle méthode d'analyse et de comparaison à l'ensemble du règne animal. Sa classification du monde animal, qui se divise en articulés, vertébrés, mollusques et radiaires, repose sur l'idée que les critères anatomiques et physiologiques des animaux étaient dus à leur fonction et habitats et non l'inverse. Cachet annulé de l'institut catholique de Paris. Dos épidermés. Nissen, 1013. Wood, p. 307.

Inhaltsreiche Korrespondenz mit seinem ihm freundschaftlich verbundenen Verleger Tobias Haslinger über Verlags- und Vertragsangelegenheiten betr. seiner Klavierschule ("Von Farrenc [d. i. sein Pariser Verleger] höre ich kein Wort; - vom Engländer erhielt ich vor einigen Tagen die Correctur", 22.

II.), mit einer Empfehlung für die junge Pianistin Caroline Perthaler (9. III., mit deren montierter Visitenkarte), mit der Bitte, ihm doch unverzüglich das Mozartsche Konzert für zwei Klaviere in Es-Dur zukommen zu lassen, da er es "sehr nöthig und dringend" brauche (16. VII.; mit einer kleinen Notenskizze daraus), mit der Mitteilung, daß er "seit 3 Monaten sehr fleißig" gewesen sei und "bereits 4 Manuscripte liegen habe; nähmlich: das Conzert in As dur; ein Septett militair; eine fantasie mit Orchestre-Begleitung [sic]; ein Gesellschaft[s] Rondo brillant; und Mehrere Kleinigkeiten werden noch bis dahin [d. i. seine geplante Reise über Paris nach London] fertig" (15. XII.), und mit einer launigen Schelte: "Es ist recht edel von Ihnen daß Sie die ganze Schuld des Nichtkommens nach Weimar auf Ihre Schultern allein geladen haben; allein hinterm Berge wohnen auch noch Leute die solche Pfiffe weg haben und wohl wißen, wo der Hase im Pfeffer sitzt. Ja, ja, wenn der Stephansthurm in Weimar gestanden und Herrn Müller's Korpus in Baumwolle dahin hätte transportirt werden können, so hätte man vielleicht das Glük [sic] gehabt, die commoden Hrn. Wiener bei sich zu sehen, aber so - - - blieben sie weg. - Ist das erlaubt, das ganze liebe Eßen, die schöne Gabe Gottes 3 Stunden lange versieden und verbraten zu laßen und dennoch nicht nur an dem besprochenen Tag, sondern gar nicht zu kommen; aber wartet nur Ihr lieben Herrn, wenn Ihr mich einmal nach Eurer vollkommenen Bequemlichkeit in Weimar besucht, so sollt Ihr dafür büßen und auf das Allerschlechteste aufgenommen und bedient werden; Strafe muß seyn!!! - Auch meine Frau war [.] so böse, daß sie gar nichts von Ihnen wißen wollte; - doch nun bin ich mit der Strafpredigt fertig [.]" (5. VII.). - "[.] Nun eine Bitte! Der Intendant hat mir aufgetragen an Sie zu schreiben und mich wegen der jungen Grünbaum [d. i. die Sängerin Caroline Grünbaum, 1814-1868] zu erkundigen; Sie hatten mir damals über diesen Punkt meines Briefes nichts mehr gemeldet, ob sie [d. i. wohl deren Mutter] uns die Tochter wohl anvertrauen möchte. Hier würde sie offenbar viel mehr geschont seyn als auf jedem andern Theater, da wir nur einmal die Woche Oper haben; auch würde sie hier in Hinsicht ihrer Bildung nur gewinnen können. Wie alt ist sie? wie ist ihre äußere Gesichtsbildung und Gestalt? [.]", 29. III.). - Unveröffentlicht.

        Recuerdos sobre la rebelion de Caracas.

      Madrid, Leon Amarita, 1829. - Madrid, Leon Amarita, 1829. 8vo. 407 + [1 blank]p. Vignette on title. With author’s autograph signature at end of text. 19th century sprinkled sheep; spine gilt with morocco title label. First edition of this controversial eye-witness account of the early stages of the Venezuelan revolution by an outspoken intellectual opponent who condemns the actions of his former colleagues and friends. Diaz (1772-1834,a mulatto foundling, was a distinguished surgeon responsible for the introduction of smallpox vaccination in Venezuela, and inspector of Caracas hospitals; he was also an influential journalist acting as co-editor of the Semanario de Caracas. In 1813 he was forced to flee on the arrival of Simon Bolivar (1783-1830), the leader of the rising which began at Caracas in 1810 and developed into a protracted merciless war of extermination. The controversial anti-patriot book is valued for its authentic documentation of the events described and its critical observations of Bolívar whom Diaz considered an atheist. A previous owner wrote the author's name in blue pencil on the title page which is toned in places; otherwise the book is in good condition. Leclerc 1465; Palau 72159; Sabin 19967 (unseen).

        Travels on the continent, Sicily and the Lipari Islands. Second edition.

      London, Longman, Rees, Orme, and Co., 1829. Large 8vo (26.8 x 17.2 cm). x, 494, [ii] pp.; 21 fine engraved plates, and 34 text engravings. Contemporary grained half morocco over marbled boards. Spine with five raised, stipple-gilted bands; compartments with gilt vignettes and a brown morocco label with gilt title.= The author, Richard Duppa (1770-1831), was an English writer (of, for instance, "The Life of Michel Angelo Buonarroti with his poetry and letters"), archaeologist, botanist ("The classes and orders of the Linnaean System of Botany. Illustrated by select specimens of foreign and indigenous plants"), and illustrator. This work is the illustrated narrative of his voyage through France, Switzerland, and -mostly- Italy. In the preface Duppa wrote "...the author has taken some pain to be correct in his facts and has never indulged his imagination". Indeed, his observations are detailed and correct. He even lists the travel hours and distances of each leg. Another notable feature is the author's interest in handwritings. Several plates show facsimiles of autographs and other writings. The work contains two indexes to the illustrations, namely one of the woodcuts and one of the engravings. The fine, very detailed engravings are not all on separate plates, but also present on text pages. For the appendix, Duppa lists five plates; however, there are six. There is no "first" edition of this title; this is a re-edited and very much expanded version of the author's "Miscellaneous observations on the Continent" (214 pp., 1825), which contained only the voyage through France and Switzerland. "Travels on the Continent" includes the Italian part - making up most of both the text and the illustrations. Plate numbering is odd: 1, 3, 4, 6, 7, 10, 12, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, I-VI. Uncut. Blindstamp in the top margin of the title page; a vague number stamp on the dedication page. Front hinge a bit weak; otherwise a very good copy. Rare.

First edition of this title, representing an expanded version of Wadd's "Cursory Remarks on Corpulence" (1810 and later eds.). Includes a section on the dangers of excessive leanness, and a section containing dietary advice. The illustrations for this work were drawn and engraved by Wadd, and "remind one of Cruikshank" (Dictionary of National Biography).

        [NATURAL HISTORY; KANGAROO; EMU; COCKATOO] The Tower Menagerie :

      comprising the Natural History of the Animals contained in that Establishment; with Anecdotes of their Characters and History. London : Robert Jennings, 1829. First edition. Octavo, original quarter bound green morocco over plain boards (lightly marked), spine with gilt lettering, xviii, 241 pp, illustrated. A good copy. A fascinating early nineteenth publication which serves as a guide book to the collection of exotic animals kept at the menagerie of the Tower of London, one of the earliest public zoos. Each animal is accorded an engraved illustration and a short essay. Included are the relatively recently discovered Australian animals theKanguroo, Yellow-crested Cockatoo and New Holland Emeu, which apparently adapted to the London environment well enough to thrive and reproduce. In 1832 the Menagerie was closed and the animals were relocated to Regent's Park.Not in Ferguson.

        [Mandements, etc.].

      L'Imprimerie de Dejussieu, 1829. A substantial gathering of printed pieces by and connected to the Bishop of Autun (1797-1851) -- what appears to be => all of his official correspondence with his diocese and with various other clergymen from the time of his appointment through his death, as well as some of the letters from others to which he responded. While the first piece in the first volume was printed in Paris by Adrien le Clere & Cie., D'Héricourt subsequently used => his own designated local printer, and many of these pieces are attractively worked up with engraved headpieces, titles in decorative typefaces, and the Bishop's coat of arms vignette. Most of the pieces are in French, with four in Latin; the final few items deal with the bishop's death and the subsequent vacancy of the see. Altogether, there are dozens of pastoral letters gathered here, over 40 mandements, and a handful of circulars; also present are instructions for catechisms and first communion, and a call for public prayer "pour l'entière cessation du choléra-morbus" (1832). Given the nature of these publications and that they were printed not in Paris or another large printing center, it is clear why all are scarce, even in France. => Truly a remarkable compendium of church history during the French Restoration, July Monarchy, and Second Republic.

        Methodist/Wesley Autograph album - Circa 1829

      - Methodist autograph album: A very rare important Methodist autograph book with the vast majority of sayings, hymns, and extracts written around 1829 and dated to Sheffield, presumably at the Wesleyan Methodist Connexional meeting. Bound handsome green, straight-grained calf. 40 total autographs plus 5 pictures. Measures at 4.5" x 7.25" The Contents Include: Ahterton, Rev. William (1776-1850). President of the Wesleyan Conference and sometime opponent of Jabez Bunting. Atherton maintained that the only good thing the Anglican church had ever given Methodism was the kick to the backside it gave Wesley when it cast him out of her impure assembly. Many of his sermons were published. However, he is likely best-known for his infamous instance of foot-in-mouth. The famous Wesleyan female preacher, Mary Barritt was in attendance at a funeral sermon for Joseph Taylor, who had been converted under the preaching of the said woman. Not knowing it to be so, and opposed evidently to female preachers, he proceeded in his discourse, Balaam was converted by the braying of an ass, and Peter by the crowing of a cock; and our lamented brother by the preaching of a woman. 10 line signed sentiment, dated May 21, 1829. A well informed mind, and intelligent conversation, a sweet and amiable temper, under the influence of Grace, constitute that interesting being called woman, the noblest of all God's creatures. Marsden, Joshua (1777-1837). Early missionary of the Wesleyan Methodists, he had important stations in Nova Scotia and Bermuda, also penning the important missionary anthem, Go Ye Messengers of God. He is author of: Amusements of a mission; or poems, moral, religious, and descriptive. Interspersed with anecdotes. Written during a residence abroad (1818). The Backslider, a descriptive moral poem, in four books (1815). An extract from the Rev. J. Marsden's journal, during his passage from New York to England to which are added, Lines on the much lamented death of the Rev. Thomas Coke (1815). Grace displayed: an interesting narrative of the life, conversion, Christian experience, ministry and missionary labours of Joshua Marsden (1814). The Narrative of a Mission to Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the Somer Islands; with a tour to Lake Ontario. To which is added the Mission, an original poem, . also a brief Account of Missionary Societies, etc. (1816). etc. 12 line signed sentiment, dated August 10th, 1829. Sheffield Conference. A Woman that Feareth the Lord Grace is in all her steps; Heaven in her eye; In all her conduct Dignity and Love. Milton (i.e. John Milton) To woman's gentle care we owe All that delights and glads us here They its young hopes in youth bestow and age they soothe and care they cheer Another by Marsden, 3pp extensive poem written, as noted here by Marsden, impromptu for the Rev'd. Ms. Hammett (possibly the owner of this album). Stanley, Jacob. President of the Wesleyan Conference in 1845, Stanley's main claim on Methodist attention was his unrelenting warning of the encroachment of the papacy. He authored a number of influential works on the subject as An Antidote to Papal Poison, Dialogues on Popery, and many others. This is a wonderfully befitting inscription. 8 lines, dated August 11th, 1829. Sheffield. I hate popery as I hate the common adversary (i.e. the devil), and were my body gunpowder, I should most cheerfully bequeath it to blow it up. Fordred, John. An eminent Wesleyan, ministering in Oxford. In addition to his ministerial duties and serving various posts for the Conference, he was a noted inventor and authored for The Mechanics' Magazine, where he wrote of his many parents etc. 10 lines, dated August 12th, 1829.

They are interleaved with facing letterpress captions and brief descriptions of the subject/sitters. Two surviving original tissue papers. Smart 19th century brown half-morocco gilt with gilt title to spine. Marbled endpapers, a.e.g. Hall was an Edinburgh-born captain in the Royal Navy. He travelled from Boston down the eastern seaboard of the USA, to Charleston and Savannah, west to Louisiana, thence up the Mississippi to St. Louis, Missouri; from there he headed north east through Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Pennsylvania, and along the Erie Canal through New York, pressing on into Canada, to Quebec and Montreal. He drew the views and characters he encountered en route with the aid of a camera lucida - an optical device invented by William Hyde Wollaston in 1807 that allowed the artist to draw an image in true perspective. The author gives an interesting commentary on the advantages of this technology in his Memorandum. The enigmatic etchings include very early views of Buffalo, Rochester, Peterborough, Riceborough, Columbus and New Orleans. Also featured are Niagara Falls, views on the Erie Canal, riverboats, a stagecoach as well as human interest, in the form of Native Americans, backwoodsmen, and black African slave drivers. One plate depicts three &#145;Canadian Voyageurs of Captain Franklin&#146;s Canoe&#146;, an encounter presumably with the celebrated explorer Sir John Franklin RN (1786&#150;1847) returning from the Canadian arctic. The present volume accompanied the author&#146;s Travels in North America in the years 1827 and 1828 (3 vols., 8vo., Cadell & Co., 1829). Hall is critical of American customs. Lizars engraved the first ten plates for J.J. Audubon&#146;s monumental Birds of America. CONDITION: Small tear to map, plates with usually fairly light, and mostly marginal, foxing and staining. All plates with faint dampstain encroaching upper right corner. Binding good. SIZE: 310 x 240mm, 12¼ x 9½ ins. REF: LoC 02001288. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Travels on the continent, Sicily and the Lipari Islands. Second edition.

      - London, Longman, Rees, Orme, and Co., 1829. Large 8vo (26.8 x 17.2 cm). x, 494, [ii] pp.; 21 fine engraved plates, and 34 text engravings. Contemporary grained half morocco over marbled boards. Spine with five raised, stipple-gilted bands; compartments with gilt vignettes and a brown morocco label with gilt title.l The author, Richard Duppa (1770-1831), was an English writer (of, for instance, "The Life of Michel Angelo Buonarroti with his poetry and letters"), archaeologist, botanist ("The classes and orders of the Linnaean System of Botany. Illustrated by select specimens of foreign and indigenous plants"), and illustrator. This work is the illustrated narrative of his voyage through France, Switzerland, and -mostly- Italy. In the preface Duppa wrote ".the author has taken some pain to be correct in his facts and has never indulged his imagination". Indeed, his observations are detailed and correct. He even lists the travel hours and distances of each leg. Another notable feature is the author's interest in handwritings. Several plates show facsimiles of autographs and other writings. The work contains two indexes to the illustrations, namely one of the woodcuts and one of the engravings. The fine, very detailed engravings are not all on separate plates, but also present on text pages. For the appendix, Duppa lists five plates; however, there are six. There is no "first" edition of this title; this is a re-edited and very much expanded version of the author's "Miscellaneous observations on the Continent" (214 pp., 1825), which contained only the voyage through France and Switzerland. "Travels on the Continent" includes the Italian part - making up most of both the text and the illustrations. Plate numbering is odd: 1, 3, 4, 6, 7, 10, 12, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, I-VI. Uncut. Blindstamp in the top margin of the title page; a vague number stamp on the dedication page. Front hinge a bit weak; otherwise a very good copy. Rare. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Rothwell and Ustick, 1829-1830, Washington City: - Folio, 582pp plus general title leaf. Volume I comprises 73 issues, from December 5, 1829 through November 24, 1830. Beginning as a weekly, The Banner would appear on Wednesdays and Saturdays starting in January 1830. The final six pages of our copy are bound out of order, but complete: 576, [579-582], [577], 578. Half calf and marbled paper-covered boards [some extremity wear, front hinge just starting]; gilt-lettered black morocco spine labels [rubbed]. Scattered spotting; wear and tear costing several words in the first issue; pages [579-582] clipped at head, costing top line of each of those pages. Good+. Condy Raguet [1784-1842], born and raised in Philadelphia, was a founder of the Philadelphia Savings Fund Society, the first savings bank in the United States. A Federalist in his early career, he won a seat in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives in 1815, and in the Pennsylvania State Senate in 1818. President Monroe appointed him Consul to Brazil; President J.Q. Adams then made him the first U.S. Ambassador to Brazil. After the Panic of 1819 Raguet became one of the most important, articulate advocates of free trade in the Nation. Economic opinion in his hometown, Philadelphia, was dominated by protectionists like Mathew Carey. Raguet sought to publish a periodical which would counter Carey's influence and rival Hezekiah Niles's protectionist Weekly Register. Raguet's Prospectus, appearing on the first page of The Banner's first issue, explains his intention to attract "the general reader" to his opinions, and to give The Banner a wider circulation than its predecessor, 'The Free Trade Advocate and Journal of Political Economy.' The Banner would appear in three volumes, expiring in December, 1832. Raguet warns against monopolies, which are "perpetually seeking to enlarge one particular interest at the expense of the rest." The Banner opposed all monopolies, whether agricultural, commercial, or manufacturing; and printed, not only material affecting commercial activities and explaining the benefits of free trade, but all news affecting the polity, including important court cases, Congressional actions, and presidential decisions.Lomazow 235.

        First lessons in the Maori language: with a short vocabulary.London, Trübner & Co. (colophon: Berlin, printed by Unger brothers), 1862. 8vo. Contemporary red cloth (bound by Edmonds & Remnants, London).

      Hocken, p. 222; Williams 351; cf. Porter, "Williams, William Leonard", in”: DNZB, Te Ara - the Encyclopedia of New Zealand. Rare first edition of an influential grammar of the Maori language. The book contains 12 chapters with grammar lessons, followed by an English-Maori vocabulary. As was often the case in publications in Maori, the usefulness of the catchphrases was minimal. Most of them were "predictably utilitarian and colonising" (Munro), for instance "kauaka hei a Hemi taka pu" ("let not my gun be in the possession of Hemi) and "ko Hemi te tangata nana i patu taku witi" ("the man who threshed my wheat was Hemi").William Leonard Williams (1829-1916), future bishop of Waiapu, was the son William Williams who compiled an influential dictionary of Maori. He carried on his father's missionary efforts and his intensive study of the Maori language. His Maori grammar would appear in 12 further editions up to 1965.With bookseller's tickets on pastedown. The binding slightly worn at the edges and with an errata slip pasted on the back of the title-page; in good condition.

Uncut. With the widest possible margins. A very good, clean and unmarked copy. Adler I, p. 28; Nissen ZBI, 1682. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Mémoires et souvenirs d'une femme de qualité sur le consulat et l'empire - EDITION ORIGINALE

      Paris: Mame et Delaunay-Vallée, 1829. Fine. Mame et Delaunay-Vallée, Paris 1829-1830, 14x22cm, 10 volumes reliés. - first edition. Binders half red morocco, back smooth decorated with gilded wheels, crowned figure of Marie-Louise von Habsburg, Empress of France and Duchess of Parma since the abdication of Napoleon in 1815. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Édition originale pour ces trois textes qui parurent séparément ; ils ont été réunis ici comme une trilogie. Reliures uniformes en demi maroquin rouge, dos lisses ornés de roulettes dorées, chiffre couronné de Marie-Louise de Habsbourg-Lorraine, ex-Impératrice de France et duchesse de Parme depuis l'abdication de Napoléon en 1815. Rare collection de ces mémoires anecdotiques apocryphes couvrant une trentaine d'années de la vie à la Cour. L'exemplaire a été relié dans l'ordre chronologique des événements historiques relatés, sans tenir compte des dates de parutions de chacun des volumes : en 1829 Mémoires d'une femme de qualité sur Louis XVIII, sa cour et son règne (4 t.), puis en 1830 : Mémoires d'une femme de qualité depuis la mort de Louis XVIII jusqu'à la fin de 1829 (2 t.), et en 1830 également : Mémoires et souvenirs d'une femme de qualité sur le Consulat et l'Empire (4 t.). Deux autres volumes, qui ne font pas partie de l'ensemble proposé, seront publiés en 1831 : Révélations d'une femme de qualité sur les années 1830 et 1831. Quérard donne d&#39;amples précisions sur la rédaction de ces mémoires. Le manuscrit des trois ouvrages a entièrement été écrit par Lamothe Langon, mais "avec tant de précipitation et si peu de soin" que les éditeurs furent contraints d&#39;en assurer la révision par Amédée Pichot. La révision du style faite, Pichot ajouta quelques chapitres de son cru, ainsi que Charles Nodier. Enfin, la tâche de refondre les mémoires fut confiée à M. Hinard, Gainaut et Ferrier, avec toujours la révision du style par Pichot. L&#39;invention, ou le subterfuge d&#39;une narratrice "femme de qualité" permet à l&#39;auteur un portrait véritable et intime de la cour évoluant autour de Napoléon Bonaparte, et tout aussi bien de celle de Louis XVIII et de celle de la Restauration, l&#39;ensemble possède un réel accent de vérité et les critiques ne sont jamais frontales mais distillées dans la perception des événements par l&#39;héroïne. Le témoignage direct d&#39;une femme sur l&#39;histoire était en effet très en vogue, ainsi des Mémoires d&#39;une contemporaine parus en 1827 et 1828 qui eurent un grand succès. Femme de haute noblesse et dont le mentor a été Madame de Stael, notre héroïne est introduite à la cour de Bonaparte. La supercherie littéraire est parfaite au sens où l&#39;on suit chronologiquement l&#39;évolution du personnage à travers l&#39;histoire, mais au sein de la cour. Le lecteur suivra avec le plus grand intérêt cette autobiographie très romancée et qui peint sous des couleurs très vivantes la vie à la cour sous Napoléon Bonaparte, puis sous la Restauration et Louis XVIII, bien que la jeunesse de l&#39;héroïne ait été rédigée en dernier. On y croise avec le plus grand plaisir tous les acteurs de ces périodes, aussi bien les acteurs politiques qu&#39;artistiques (Girodet, Mercier, Lannes...). Il faut bien souligner qu&#39;il ne s&#39;agit nullement de mémoires historiques mais de la vie romanesque d&#39;une femme à la cour, on y retrouve davantage la littérature du XVIIIe (Prévost, Lesage, Marivaux) que les critiques pamphlétaires de Chateaubriand sur les mêmes époques. On distinguera cependant une nette différence entre les premiers mémoires sur Louis XVIII et l&#39;écriture des Mémoires sur le Consulat et l&#39;Empire, en effet les premiers sont davantage un commentaire des événements historiques alors que ceux sur le Consulat tiennent davantage de l&#39;autobiographie ; sans doute cette nouvelle manière fut-elle nécessaire pour ne pas répéter tout de qui avait déjà été écrit sur l&#39;Empire dans les précédents ouvrages. Lamothe Langon fut fait Baron d&#39;Empire et eut une carrière administrative sous Bonaparte, il perdit son emploi sous la Restauration et se consacra à l&#39;écriture pour gagner sa vie. Précieux exemplaire de l'ancienne impératrice Marie-Louise, relié à son chiffre. Provenance singulière que celle de Marie-Louise de Habsbourg-Lorraine (1791-1847) : duchesse de Parme depuis l'abdication de l'empereur Napoléon en 1815, elle constitua une riche bibliothèque, principalement française. Ses livres étaient pour l'essentiel reliés en demi-maroquin rouge avec son chiffre couronné doré sur les plats. Littérature, histoire des idées, économie et politique, histoire, sa bibliothèque témoigne d'un éclectisme et d'une ouverture peu ordinaires.
