        Reptilia Musei zoologici Vratislaviensis. Recensita et descripta. [OR] Deliciae Musei zoologici Vratislaviensis. Fasciculus primus. Continens Chelonios et Batrachia.

      Lipsiae [Leipzig], Leopold Voss, 1829. Folio (40.5 x 25.5 cm). Half title, double title page, 106 pp. including dedication page and second half title; 17 finely engraved plates of which 13 delicately hand-coloured. Contemporary quarter pebbled cloth over dark grey marbled boards. Printed label on the spine.= A very rare work by the German herpetologist and entomologist Johann Ludwig Christian Carl Gravenhorst (1777-1857). The work was published under two different titles, both present here. The alternate title, "Deliciae..." suggests that it was to be part of a larger series. This, however, is all that has been published. Nevertheless, it contains a wealth of information, including the descriptions and illustrations of many new and lesser-known species of amphibians (frogs, toads, salamanders) and turtles from his private collection, which he donated to the Museum of the University of Breslau (now Wroclaw), and of which he became the director. Uncut. With the widest possible margins. A very good, clean and unmarked copy. Adler I, p. 28; Nissen ZBI, 1682.

        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]

        THE BANNER OF THE CONSTITUTION. DEVOTED TO GENERAL POLITICS, POLITICAL ECONOMY, STATE PAPERS, FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC NEWS, &C. EDITED BY CONDY RAGUET, MEMBER OF THE AMERICAN PHILOSOPHICAL SOCIETY. VOLUME I., NOS. 1- 73, DECEMBER 5, 1829 THROUGH NOVEMBER 24, 1830. FIRST OF THREE VOLUMES PUBLISHED.

      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.

        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'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'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'invention, ou le subterfuge d'une narratrice "femme de qualité" permet à l'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'ensemble possède un réel accent de vérité et les critiques ne sont jamais frontales mais distillées dans la perception des événements par l'héroïne. Le témoignage direct d'une femme sur l'histoire était en effet très en vogue, ainsi des Mémoires d'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'on suit chronologiquement l'évolution du personnage à travers l'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'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'artistiques (Girodet, Mercier, Lannes...). Il faut bien souligner qu'il ne s'agit nullement de mémoires historiques mais de la vie romanesque d'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'écriture des Mémoires sur le Consulat et l'Empire, en effet les premiers sont davantage un commentaire des événements historiques alors que ceux sur le Consulat tiennent davantage de l'autobiographie ; sans doute cette nouvelle manière fut-elle nécessaire pour ne pas répéter tout de qui avait déjà été écrit sur l'Empire dans les précédents ouvrages. Lamothe Langon fut fait Baron d'Empire et eut une carrière administrative sous Bonaparte, il perdit son emploi sous la Restauration et se consacra à l'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.

        The Housekeeper's Oracle; or, Art of Domestic Management: Containing a Complete System of Carving with Accuracy and Elegance; Hints relative to Dinner Parties; the Art of Managing Servants; and the Economist and Epicure's Calendar, shewing the seasons when all kinds of Meat, Fish, Poultry, Game, Vegetables and Fruits first arrive in the market - earliest time forced - when most plentiful - and when best and cheapest. To which is added a Variety of useful and Original Receipts.

      London: Whittaker, Treacher & Co, 1829. The delectable Arcana of Domestic Affairs. First, and only, edition, published posthumously. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Kitchiner, 21 figures to illustrate carving and one illustration of a jelly refiner in text. Pp. iv, 344. 8vo., contemporary calf, rebacked with the original gilt decorated spine laid down, booklabel of the Montefiore family on the front pastedown, a very good, handsome copy. Kitchiner's declared intention is to provide the means "that a young Lady may learn the delectable Arcana of Domestic Affairs...which will enable her to make the Cage of Matrimony as comfortable as the Net of Courtship was charming". The information in the excellent Epicures Calendar has endured with some particularly interesting insights into bread, cheese, bacon, fish, hams &c. Kitchiner (1775?-1827) was something of an eccentric. He was an Etonian who qualified as a doctor in Glasgow and therefore could not practice in England where he lived. He was very wealthy and gave marvellous banquets, of his own devising, at his home in Fitzroy Square. If, however, guests arrived even a few minutes late, they were denied entrance. He introduced the world to his culinary prowess in 'The Cook's Oracle' of 1817, many of the dishes in which he had created and tested himself. 'The Housekeeper's Oracle' was intended to be a companion volume. Unfortunately Kitchiner died before it was published and the cause was taken up by his son who had fallen out with his father but was very keen to cash in on his fame.

        29 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Zus. 48 S., 8 bis 4. Nach Studien am Collegio Capizzi in Bronte und an den Priesterseminaren von Monreale und Neapel kam De Luca 1829 nach Rom, wo er von 1833 bis 1836 Privatsekretär des Kardinals Thomas Weld war. Er wurde am 10. Februar 1839 im Alter von 33 Jahren in Rom zum Priester geweiht. Am 24. November 1845 wurde er zum Bischof von Aversa ernannt und zwei Monate später zum Bischof geweiht. Am 22. Dezember 1853 wurde er als Titularerzbischof von Tarsus eingesetzt. Pius IX. bestellte ihn am 24. Dezember 1853 zum Päpstlichen Nuntius in München und am 9. September 1856 wurde er Apostolischer Nuntius am Kaiserhof in Wien. Am 16. März 1863 im Alter von 57 Jahren wurde De Luca zum Kardinalpriester von Santi Quattro Coronati ernannt. Von 1864 bis 1878 war er Präfekt der Indexkongregation. Von 1873 bis 1874 war er Kämmerer des Kardinalskollegiums. 1878 wurde er zum Kardinalbischof von Palestrina und zum Vizekanzler der Heiligen Römischen Kirche ernannt und erhielt den titulus San Lorenzo in Damaso in commendam. Er hat am Ersten Vatikanischen Konzil und am Konklave zur Wahl Leos XIII. teilgenommen. De Luca starb 1883 im Alter von 78 Jahren in Rom (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. -

        Map of the County of Essex

      New York, 1829. unbound. Rawdon Clark & Co.. Map. Copper plate engraving with original hand outline color. Image measures 12 1/2 x 15" This map depicts Essex County in the high peaks region of the Adirondacks, divided into 17 towns in full, vivid color. Lake Champlain forms the right border of the region, and Lake Placid, yet unnamed, appears in the upper left. The map denotes major routes, waterways, and topographical details, and icons label villages, flouring mills, factories, forges, saw mills, and churches. This first edition of Burr's county map appeared in his "Atlas of the State of New York" of the same year, which was the second atlas of an individual state ever published. The map is in good condition with light foxing throughout and some ink stains in the lower right margin, not affecting the image. Full original margins. David H. Burr (1803-1875) served as Topographer to the United States Post Office and Geographer to the House of Representatives and was widely known for his accuracy and attention to detail. His "Universal Atlas" was the first to map each of the United States individually. This map is a lovely rendering of a scenic area in New York State.

B. Huet jeune; accompagnée d'un texte descriptif et d'un tableau des ordres, des familles, et de caractères appartenant à chacune d'elles.

      Paris, Blance Ainé, 1829. 4to (30.0 x 22.6 cm). 60 pp., 55 plates. Contemporary half calf over marbled boards. Spine rich gilt with a floral pattern, and gilt title. Marbled endpapers. Speckled edges.l A rare, illustrated description of the mammals in the Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle in Paris. This is the second edition (first: 1808, with only 45 plates). The first, unnumbered plate is a fine and artistically arranged comparative overview of the principal mammalian groups. It is not clear which Huet is meant by "Huet" in the title; it could be either Nicolas le jeune (brother of Jean-Baptiste le jeune), or their father, Jean-Baptiste le vieux, neither of whom we could associate with the Muséum in Paris. A very good copy, some scattered foxing towards the end. Spine rebacked. Otherwise very nice, with wide margins. Nissen ZBI, 2046; Wood (this edition), p. 393.

        The Sorrows of Rosalie. A Tale. With other Poems ?

      John Ebers and Co., London 1829 - First edition of the first published work by successful poet Caroline Norton (1808-1877).Norton had a significant literary pedigree; her mother was the novelist Caroline Henrietta Callender (1779-1851), and her paternal grandparents were the dramatist Richard Brinsley Sheridan and his first wife, the celebrated singer Elizabeth Linley. In 1827 Norton made what would prove to be an unhappy marriage to George Norton M.P., and 'disliking and disliked by his family, threw herself into literary society' (ODNB).The Sorrows of Rosalie was Norton's first published work. Even by the accepted standards of cautionary tales, the eponymous heroine suffers particular hardship. Rosalie is persuaded by her lover to abandon her aged father, but the lover - a villain - deserts her soon after. With illegitimate child in tow she seeks her betrayer in London, but is forced to abandon the search and returns to her father's house, only to find him dead. Maddened by grief and the needs of her starving child, Rosalie is driven to theft, whereupon she is imprisoned and, although she is ultimately acquitted, her child dies in prison. After much despair, she finds refuge in a remote part of the country where she devotes the remainder of her life to quiet contemplation. The work was widely reviewed; the Literary Gazette wrote, 'there is nothing very intricate in the story of the Sorrows of Rosalie' yet 'these slender materials have been worked into a tale of intense and Crabbe-like pathos'. The Morning Post asserted that 'simple, unaffected, and beautiful effusion will be perused and re-perused with still encreasing [sic] pleasure'. The New Monthly Magazine addressed the author's gender: 'The present little work is attributed to the pen of a lady. Were it not for the fair, we should have but little new poetry now-a-days. Mrs. Hemans, Miss Landon, Mrs. Howitt, Miss Browne, and others of the beau sex, have all a woman's constancy for the Muse, and do not desert the worship because it does not happen, just at present, to be the ton'.Identifying the edition of The Sorrows of Rosalie is complicated. The British Library has two editions; the present imprint and one in a different state with alternative pagination, as well as a 'fourth edition', which appeared in the same year as the first. Jackson recognises that the presence of the fourth suggests the presence of second and third states, but these have not been identified. 12mo (174 x 100 mm), pp. xii, [2], 134; edges a little browned but a good copy, untrimmed in contemporary blue paper backed boards, remains of printed paper label to spine; upper joint cracked but holding; book labels of Simon Nowell-Smith and Judith Adams Nowell-Smith.

        A BRIEF VIEW OF THE FORMATION, GOVERNMENT AND DISCIPLINE OF THE "CHURCH OF GOD"

      Harrisburg, PA: Montgomery and Dexter, Printers, 1829. Hardcover. VG, with significant foxing in areas. COvers are quite nice, a solid impression. Hard to imagine a finer copy being found. Extensive but very faint pencil writing on ffep.. Full pebbled leather, 3.5" x 5.5" redleather gilt lettered label on spine. 174 pp. Extremely scarce first printing of this treatise by Winebrenner, who was written about extensively in Richard Kern; John Winebrenner and the Church of God. Gossard writes (in his lengthy essay John Winebrenner: From German Reformed Roots to the Churches of God) "...John Winebrenner was a German Reformed minister who founded a religious movement known as the Church of God.(1) In the 1820s, as pastor of the Salem German Reformed Church in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, he came into conflict with the vestry over his use of New Measures revivalism and other issues. Eventually this dispute led to his dismissal by the vestry and his removal from the rolls of the Synod of the German Reformed Church. He developed new theological views about the Bible, the church, free will, baptism, the Lords Supper, and foot washing that were in opposition to the beliefs of the German Reformed Church. In 1830 his followers officially organized, forming a denomination known as the Churches of God, General Conference. In the 1840s he became an antagonist of John Williamson Nevin, a professor at the German Reformed seminary in Mercersburg, Pennsylvania. Winebrenner's activities, letters, and publications were among the precipitating factors that led Nevin to write The Anxious Bench and "The Sect System," two important early expressions of what became known as the Mercersburg Theology..."

A New Guy Fawkes Speech. [London]: E. Billing, 186, Bermondsey Street, [c.1840]. 9-3/4" x 7-1/2" broadside. Six-stanza verse text within woodcut typographical border, first four stanzas in two columns, separated by woodcut rules below headline and vignette of a group of people burning Fawkes in effigy. Light toning, otherwise fine. A well-preserved rare item. $650. * A celebratory broadside commemorating Guy Fawkes Day. Also known as Guy Fawkes Night, Bonfire Night or Firework Night, it is an English national holiday commemorating the failed Gunpowder Plot, an attempt by a group of Catholics to assassinate King James I by blowing up the House of Lords during the State Opening of Parliament. The plot was foiled when Fawkes was discovered with a cache of explosives hidden beneath the House of Lords. The date of our broadside is conjectured from a similar broadside by Billing with a contemporary handwritten date of 1829 held by the National Library of Scotland. The verses on that copy end with "God save the King." Ours ends with "God save the Queen," so we assume it was printed in the early years of Queen Victoria's reign, which began in 1837.

        Mémoires d'un Forban philosophe.

      Moutardier, rue Gît-le-Coeur, n°4, Paris 1829 - 1 vol. in-8 de (4)-III-(1)-331 pp., toile rouge, pièce de titre (relié vers 1860). Édition originale rare. L'ouvrage fut supprimé dès sa parution. L'éditeur précise dans sa préface : « Le lecteur qui se nourrit des Mémoires de Vidocq et de ses familiers pourra-t-il goûter les charmes des productions d'une imagination réglée et brillante ? Non sans doute : il faut pour dessiller ses yeux, pour le détourner de la fausse route, il faut qu'il voie l'horreur jusque dans sa dégoûtante nudité (.). Les Mémoires d'un Forban philosophe peuvent en ce sens être considérés comme un véritable antidote contre la dépravation du goût ; c'est le dernier degré d'horreur auquel on puisse arriver. Jamais on a produit rien de plus épouvantable : licence de la soldatesque, débordements des lieux de débauche, infamies des prisons et des galères, meurtres, crimes, trahisons, assassinats (.) L'éditeur espère que ces Mémoires seront le dernier sacrifice offert au goût du jour, et que la littérature des criminels sur son déclin pâlira désormais devant le dégoût du public éclairé ». Ce roman virulent et subversif est, pour partie, rédigé en argot. Il est célèbre pour avoir été utilisé par Victor Hugo dans Les Misérables et dans Le Dernier Jour d'un condamné. Dans l'inventaire de la bibliothèque de Victor Hugo à Guernesey, rédigé par Julie Chenay, l'ouvrage est attribué à un certain R. Buchez. « Les Mémoires d'un forban philosophe ne sont autre chose que la vie d'un marin célèbre qui a passé par toutes les étamines : infamie des prisons et des galères, meurtres, crimes, trahisons, assassinats, tout s'y trouve mis au grand jour par l'auteur lui-même, qui rachète en quelque sorte ses forfaits par des réflexions philosophiques, trop hardies, sans doute, mais qui relèvent toujours son récit » (catalogue de l'éditeur en 1835). Cellard, Anthologie de la littérature argotique, p. 103 : « L'histoire de l'ouvrage est enveloppée d'obscurité. Sitôt paru, il est saisi et détruit par la police de Charles X ; non pas pour des raisons de convenance sociale (l'argot et le récit lui-même), mais pour des raisons politiques. Inconnu de nous jusqu'à de meilleures recherches, l'auteur ne l'était certainement pas de la police royale, qui devait le tenir à juste titre pour un républicain dangereux ». Signature de l'époque Mondoz répétée au titre, Avis de l'éditeur, Introduction, et dernier feuillet. Très bon exemplaire. Quelques rousseurs. Yve-Plessis, Bibliographie raisonnée de l'argot, nº120 : « Cet ouvrage fut supprimé dès son apparition. On y rencontre beaucoup de passages argotiques ». [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      viii, 332 (i.e. 132) pp. 8vo, attractive antique half-calf & marbled boards, flat spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Paris: J.S. Merlin, 1829. The very uncommon sale catalogue of Renouard's great collection of more than 200 Elzeviers, formed over a fifty year period. To this collection, Renouard has added about another 11100 titles (1397 lots in total) from his personal collection. In his preface, Renouard stresses that his Elzeviers were in the finest possible condition with many being in original state ("virginal") with uncut edges. Renouard (1765-1853), originally a manufacturer and involved in late revolutionary politics, became a collector, publisher, and bookseller. He achieved bibliographic immortality through his bibliographies of the Aldine and Estienne presses, indispensable to the present day. Renouard was one of the two or three most important French booksellers in the first half of the 19th century. Fine copy.

        A Parliamentary Game of Shuttlecock

      London: T. McLean 26 Haymarket, 1829. Satirical cartoon published May 1829, satirizing the British Parliament and the Irish constituents of Mr. O'Connell in his attempt to take his seat. His electors were the forty-shilling freeholders now disenfranchised. He is seen astride a badminton shuttlecock about to be swatted back over to Ireland by the Speaker, with Wellington looking on and Lord Angeles. See BM Satires No. 15761. The Irish electorate is pictured as a crowd dressed in green, also holding badminton rackets, on the opposite shore. 9 3/8 x 13 1/4" with very small margins, tipped onto a larger sheet, with the actual name of the satirized person penciled below in an early hand. Very fresh period hand color. Very crisp.
