        Mémoires du Duc de Rovigo, pour servir à l'histoire de l'Empereur Napoléon

      - Paris, Bossange 1829. 8 volumes in-12 reliés demi chagrin chocolat. Dos à nerfs. Titres et tomaisons dorés. Général et homme politique français, né à Marcq (Ardennes) le 26 avril 1774, mort à Paris le 2 juin 1833. Nommé officier d’ordonnance de Pichegru, puis de Moreau, Savary se fit remarquer par sa bravoure au passage du Rhin, à Freiberg en Saxe, et obtint alors le grade de chef d’escadron (1797). Desaix, avec qui il se lia à cette époque, l’ayant pris pour aide de camp, il l’accompagna dans toutes ses campagnes, à l’armée du Rhin, en Egypte (1798-1800) et en Italie, sur le champ de bataille de Marengo. Savary devint l’homme de confiance de Napoléon ; Il fut chargé notamment de découvrir les auteurs de l’enlèvement du comte Clément de Ris et d’aller secrètement en Vendée pour y découvrir les complices de Cadoudal. Nommé, en 1800, colonel et commandant de la gendarmerie d’élite, chargé de veiller à la sûreté du premier consul, il devint en même temps directeur d’un bureau de police secrète. Savary présida à l’exécution du duc d’Enghien et s’opposa, au rapport du général Hulin, à ce que le duc eût, selon son désir, un entretien avec Bonaparte. Général de division et grand officier de la Légion d’honneur en 1805, il fit avec Napoléon les campagnes de 1805 et de tantôt comme général, tantôt comme diplomate. Il fut appelé à succéder à Fouché comme ministre de la police. Investi, à la fin de 1831, du commandement en chef des troupes françaises en Algérie, il resta dans ce pays jusqu’à ce que la maladie à laquelle il succomba l’eût obligé à revenir en France en 1833(Larousse XIXeme). Bel ensemble, complet. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Alterthümer Lief- Ehst- und Kurlands.

      Riga 1829 - contemporary marbled boards with cover-lable on front. 8to. (16 x 10,5 cm) Manuscript with 72 (including 5 colored) original drawings of castles, ruins and places in Latvia, Livonia and Estonia, as well as some tombs of slavonic bishopfs and rulers. 6 of the drawings are signed by "A. Merkel", who most probably is Adolf Merkel, the son of Garlieb Helwig Merkel (1769-1850), who was a Baltic German writer, activist and an early Estophile and Lettophile. The manuscript bears the subdivision "Erste Abtheilung" (First Part), so probably more parts were planned, but due to the early death of Adolf Merkel in the year 1830 were never been finished. The drawings were mostly reproduced after older sources like the drawings by Augustin von Mayerberg, whose 17th century drawings were first published as engravings just two years before in 1827. Merkel stated the original date of the image on most of his drawings, so he mentioned the years 1661-1662 on the plates which were drawn after Mayerberg, but there are many other dates: 1634, 1775, 1788, 1790, 1792, 1793, 1794, 1797, 1799, 1800, 1805, 1817, 1820, 1821, 1826, 1827, 1829. The last 6 drawings are dated 1829 and are all signed by Merkel and are most probably drawn on-site. Most likely Adolf Merkel used the library of his father Garlieb for his sources and it also can be assumed, that not all drawings were reproduced after printed soures but after drawings and sketch-books of his father Garlieb Merkel as well. The plates are numbered 1-74, 2 plates were removed (both have shown the castle Kreutzburg (Kryžbarkas) nowadays Russia) - The manuscript includes drawings of the following castles and towns: Schloss Wenden (8 drawings with different datings), Kokenhusen (7 drawings), Schloss Segewold, Schloss Ronneburg, Schloss Freiden, Schloss Fellin (2 drawings), Schloss Doblen (2), Schloss Oberpalen, Schloss Marienhausen, Schloss Tolsburg, Schloss Borckholm, Schloss Smilten, Schloss Ringen, Schloss Tarwast, Burg Ermes (2), Schloss Karnus, Schlossturm zu Kida, Abtei Padis, Schloss Weissenstein, Schloss Warte zu Weissenstein, Schlosskirche zu Weissenstein, Schloss Wesenberg (2), Schloss Erla, Schloss Lemfal, Schloss Helmet, Reval, Schloss Pebalg, Schloss Ascheraden, Schloss Etz, Schloss Bauske (2), Trikaten (Trikata), Schloss Ludzen, Schloss Candau, Burg Lais, Schloss Burtnek (2), Schloss Neuhausen (2), Schloss Marienburg (2), Schloss Adsel, Schloss Tuckum, Schloss Lennewaden (2), Schloss Selburg, Schloss Ascheraden (2). -- condition: binding some rubbed, the last two leaves with browned spot at upper margin (also with little marginal loss to the last drawing-plate) -- A very rare pictorial latvian manuscript with very interesting origin.

        A Plan of Hastings Harbour, in the Mergui Archipelago, and the Adjacent Islands, by Capt. Danl. Ross, F.R.S. Marine Surveyor General 1828.

      James Horsburgh, Nov 2nd 1829, London: - A rare map of islands in the Andaman Sea, Burma, surveyed by Daniel Ross, known as the "Father of the Indian Surveys." Captain Ross was engaged in surveying the coast of China from 1806-1820. His highly accurate & trigonometrical charts were published as they were completed, and the whole were incorporated into Horsburgh's general charts. In 1823, he became the Marine Surveyor General. Clements Markham, in "A Memoir on the Indian Surveys" (1871) stated that "During the Burmese War from 1823 to 1826 the useful operations under his superintendency were interrupted." and despite a "fit of ruinous economy" in 1828, Ross resumed his good work and in 1830, again had two brigs (surveying) in the Mergui Archipelago. The map was surveyed on the heels of the First Burmese War, perhaps with thoughts of being prepared for another war, and another, which fortunately did not start again until the 1850s. The map shows the islands Hasting's, St. Matthew's and St. Luke's, now named Hastings, Zadetkalay and Zadetkyi. Other islands include Pine Tree, Russell's, Three Hill, Phipp's, Barwell's and Horse Shoe Island, mostly appearing as Kawthaung on Google maps. Sea chart backed on linen and edged in blue silk. Some spotting in the lower right corner (water) but otherwise remarkable clean and fresh, including the silk ties. "Engraved by Richard Bateman" beneath the title. The British Library holds a copy ( BLL01004857047) but not noted on OCLC.

(16 x 10,5 cm) Manuscript with 72 (including 5 colored) original drawings of castles, ruins and places in Latvia, Livonia and Estonia, as well as some tombs of slavonic bishopfs and rulers. 6 of the drawings are signed by \"A. Merkel\", who most probably is Adolf Merkel, the son of Garlieb Helwig Merkel (1769-1850), who was a Baltic German writer, activist and an early Estophile and Lettophile. The manuscript bears the subdivision \"Erste Abtheilung\" (First Part), so probably more parts were planned, but due to the early death of Adolf Merkel in the year 1830 were never been finished. The drawings were mostly reproduced after older sources like the drawings by Augustin von Mayerberg, whose 17th century drawings were first published as engravings just two years before in 1827. Merkel stated the original date of the image on most of his drawings, so he mentioned the years 1661-1662 on the plates which were drawn after Mayerberg, but there are many other dates: 1634, 1775, 1788, 1790, 1792, 1793, 1794, 1797, 1799, 1800, 1805, 1817, 1820, 1821, 1826, 1827, 1829. The last 6 drawings are dated 1829 and are all signed by Merkel and are most probably drawn on-site. Most likely Adolf Merkel used the library of his father Garlieb for his sources and it also can be assumed, that not all drawings were reproduced after printed soures but after drawings and sketch-books of his father Garlieb Merkel as well. The plates are numbered 1-74, 2 plates were removed (both have shown the castle Kreutzburg (Kryžbarkas) nowadays Russia) - The manuscript includes drawings of the following castles and towns: Schloss Wenden (8 drawings with different datings), Kokenhusen (7 drawings), Schloss Segewold, Schloss Ronneburg, Schloss Freiden, Schloss Fellin (2 drawings), Schloss Doblen (2), Schloss Oberpalen, Schloss Marienhausen, Schloss Tolsburg, Schloss Borckholm, Schloss Smilten, Schloss Ringen, Schloss Tarwast, Burg Ermes (2), Schloss Karnus, Schlossturm zu Kida, Abtei Padis, Schloss Weissenstein, Schloss Warte zu Weissenstein, Schlosskirche zu Weissenstein, Schloss Wesenberg (2), Schloss Erla, Schloss Lemfal, Schloss Helmet, Reval, Schloss Pebalg, Schloss Ascheraden, Schloss Etz, Schloss Bauske (2), Trikaten (Trikata), Schloss Ludzen, Schloss Candau, Burg Lais, Schloss Burtnek (2), Schloss Neuhausen (2), Schloss Marienburg (2), Schloss Adsel, Schloss Tuckum, Schloss Lennewaden (2), Schloss Selburg, Schloss Ascheraden (2). -- condition: binding some rubbed, the last two leaves with browned spot at upper margin (also with little marginal loss to the last drawing-plate) -- A very rare pictorial latvian manuscript with very interesting origin.

        Travels in Arabia, comprehending an account of those territories in Hedjaz which the Mohammedans regard as sacred. London, Henry Colburn, 1829.

      1829. Large 4to (26 x 21 cm). XVI, 478 pp. With five lithogr. maps (one folding). 19th century three-quarters green levant with prettily gilt spine. Marbled endpapers. All edges gilt. First edition (the second of the same year was in two volumes, octavo). Burckhardt travelled disguised as an Arab, making his notes clandestinely. This work deals primarily with his travels to Mecca and Djidda, Medina and Yembo. The Lausanne-born Burckhardt (1784-1817) was a remarkable character, the first Westerner to visit the Holy Cities. In the guise of a pilgrim "he proceeded to perform the rites of pilgrimage at Mekka, go round the Kaaba, sacrifice, &c., and in every respect acquitted himself as a good Muslim. No Christian or European had ever accomplished this feat before; and the penalty of discovery would probably have been death. [...] Burckhardt possessed the highest qualifications of a traveller. Daring and yet prudent, a close and accurate observer, with an intimate knowledge of the people among whom he travelled, their manners and their language, he was able to accomplish feats of exploration which to others would have been impossible" (Stanley Lane-Poole, in: DNB VII, 293f.). - Old stamp of the "Belcher Library" (Gaysville, Vermont) on first blank, some toning and brownstaining.

        An Uncommon Tour of Europe by Carriage by an Englishman, Visiting Mer de Glace in French Alps - Germany - Switzerland, and with Naturalist Jakob Samuel Wyttenbach

      Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, France, 23 July - 8 October 1829. Manuscript fair journal of an Englishman's adventurous overland journey through four countries in a horse-drawn carriage, taking some lesser-travelled routes, following the river Rhine, ascending to the glaciers of Mont Blanc, and being in Belgium at the time of Dutch occupation when it was part of 'The Kingdom of the Netherlands.' 8vo. 175 pages, plus introduction leaf. Half green calf over marbled boards, marbled endpapers. Some leafs watermarked 'Slade 1824'. A pleasing account. The late Georgian era travel diary of a rather adventurous man in his day, evidently of comfortable wealth, the present volume offers a pleasant and nostalgic reflection of European cities and villages as they were some seven to eight generations past. The traveller describes ancient cathedrals and monuments, fortresses, quiet villages, picturesque promenades, and undeveloped landscapes which have long since been industrialized and overpopulated. His interest in history, religious, political, architectural, sociological, and so forth, suggests that he is also an educated man, although he does not identify himself by name. A single mention is made of Conner, perhaps a brother or friend, whom he is travelling with. This being the writer's very first journey outside of England, his native country, the first entry is made on 23 July 1829 as he sets off from Dover aboard His Majesty's Mail Packet Salamander [built circa 1826], reflecting on the journey there from London as he crosses the English Channel to Calais. Immediately he is struck by French fashion. In Calais he hires the horse-drawn carriage for three months, with conductor, and the journey begins with visits to Saint-Omer, Cassel, and Lille. Nineteen (19) pages of his travel diary are devoted to historic Belgium, which for a brief period of twenty-four years from 1815-1839 was under Dutch occupation, then being part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. First stop Tournai, then to Brussels where he took a lovely tour and found luxurious accommodation, on to Waterloo, Namur, and Huy where only a few years earlier in 1818 the Fortress of Huy had been built by the Dutch, his explorations in what is now Belgium concludes at the healing mineral baths of Spa. [Following the Belgian Revolution, Belgium broke away from the Netherlands the year after this journey, in 1830. Namur continued to be a major garrison town under the new government.] His road through Germany follows the river Rhine for the most part, making an exceptionally scenic tour. At Aix-la-Chapelle [Aachen] he describes of the cathedral built by order of the Emperor Charlemagne [Charles the Great] who was buried there after his death in 814, and mentions Frederick Barbarossa who canonized Charlemagne in 1165. His horse-drawn carriage takes him from there to Cologne, Koblenz, continuing south to Bacharach, Bingen, Frankfurt am Main, Heidelberg, Karlsruhe, Baden-Baden, Kehl, and finally to Freiburg where he describes the Freiburg Minster. Approximately thirty-seven (37) pages are devoted to Germany. [At the time of his journey, there remained tensions between the Roman Catholic Rhineland and the Protestant Prussian state, with Cologne being at the center of the repeatedly escalating conflicts. Cologne had been made part of the Kingdom of Prussia with the Congress of Vienna (1814-1815) following Napoleon's final defeat and abdication, first as part of the Jülich-Cleves-Berg province and then the Rhine province. Frankfurt had entered the newly founded German Confederation as a free city, becoming the seat of its Bundestag.] The first Swiss town visited was Schaffhausen. From there he briefly crossed the border back into Germany to visit Blumberg and Rhine Falls, then he continued to Zurich, Lucerne, Surcee, and Langenthal (which would not see municipal water, nor electric utility for some sixty years). In Bern, the traveller visited the world renowned Swiss Protestant (Reformed) theologian and naturalist, Jakob Samuel Wyttenbach (1748-1830), who gave him a private tour and showed him his collections of art etc. Between Morat [Murten] and Payerne he takes notice of "a stone pillar erected in 1822 by the Fribourgians in commemoration of a victory over Charles the Bold", then proceeds to Lausanne, Geneva, and Pregnis [Pregny-Chambésy]. Spending a few days around Lake Geneva, he also visited Chillon castle. Approximately thirty-six (36) pages devoted to Switzerland. From Ferney-Voltaire, France, a long journey was undertaken to the Valley of Chamounix and through the French Alps. Still travelling on a horse-drawn carriage even for a harrowing ascent to Montenvers Mer de Glace, the highlight of the entire journey was surely crossing the massive ice chasms. His ambitious itinerary continues to Bellegarde-sur-Valserine, Meximieux, Lyon, Roanne, Moulins, Nevers, La Charité, Bourges, Issoudun, Loches, Tours, Châteaudun, Chartres, Rambouillet, Versailles, Saint-Cloud, finally visiting Paris. From there he proceeds to Saint-Denis, and his final entry is made upon settling for the night on 8 October at a hotel in Beauvais. Approximately seventy-nine (79) pages are devoted to France. Excerpts from the text: "The following is a brief Journal of a Tour through part of the Netherlands, along the banks of the Rhine into Switzerland, and a return over the Jura through France, with a deviation from the usual routes & tours, and from thence to Paris &c &c..." 24 July 1829, Calais. "The women do not go about in bonnets but wear plain neat caps with broad borders, & long cloaks. Many of them have also long earrings..." "... went with Conner to choose a carriage for our journey. I fixed upon a very good calèche [horse-drawn carriage] for which I agreed to pay 300 francs for the first month, 250 for the 2nd, & 200 for the 3rd & the owners to stand all repairs... Our conductor... served 30 years in the French Army..." 27 July 1829, Cassel, "Kingdom of the Netherlands". "We next went to see the gardens & pleasure grounds of General Vandames which are very prettily laid out... altogether about 50 acres & are surrounded by a wall..." [General Dominique-Joseph René Vandamme, Count of Unseburg (1770-1830) was a French military officer, who fought in the Napoleonic Wars and in 1815 was exiled to America. He settled in Philadelphia.] 28 July 1829, Basieux, "Kingdom of the Netherlands". "... entering the Netherlands we were stopped at Basieux & have our passports examined & a little further on at the Custom House one or two of our trunks were searched & all our packages had a piece of lead affixed, as a proof they had undergone & done inspection." 31 July 1829, Namur, "Kingdom of the Netherlands". "I got to Namur a little before 6. It is a fine old town... lies between 2 hills at the confluence of the Sambre & the Meuse... went to see the Church of the Jesuits a noble building... columns very handsome of red & black marble..." 4 August 1829, Aix-la-Chapelle [Aachen]. "In the center of the church is the tomb of Charlemagne with this plain inscription... on a throne of white marble... on a pedestal of six steps which was taken out of this tomb after Charlemagne had been embalmed 350 years before Frederick Barbarossa, & on which 36 Emperors have since been crowned. This ceremony has been discontinued at this place from the time of Maximilian 1st..." 8-9 August 1829, Frankfurt am Main. "... a large handsome & populous city... governed by its own magistracy. The streets are spacious... many of the houses have a stately & clean appearance.... cathedral... the organ is said to be 500 years old. The Emperors of Germany are crowned here... in future they are to be crowned at Vienna." 12 August 1829, Karlsruhe. "From Dourlach [Durlach] to Carlsruhe is a very long straight avenue of poplars planted close together in rows. It extends 8 miles... Carlsruhe is a very pleasant clean looking town with wide streets & some good houses... the magnificent Palace of the Duke of Baden [Ludwig I]... a ball room 8 or so wax candles are lighted when it is used... music room also handsome with a gallery all round... there were 365 rooms... to the top of the tower from which there is a most beautiful & extensive..." 14 August 1829, Baden-Baden. "... lies in a valley & is surrounded by hills & vineyards. It is famous for its hot baths... walked to a sort of a promenade with shops on each side...went also to the hot wells." 21 August 1829, Sursee. "... the Town of Sursee where we halted for a short time to water the horses... Opposite the Inn was a machine for sawing timber, put in motion by water..." 23-24 August 1829, Bern. "... called on Mr. Wyttenbach an excellent worthy old man. He is minister of the Lutheran Church... He is visited by celebrated men of all countries & he shewed us some drawings that had been given him... He does not speak English... This morning we went again to Mr. Wyttenbach who shewed us a number of views of the different mountains & places in the neighbourhood... proceeded to the museum." 9 September 1829, "Road to Chamouni" "... along some fine woody mountains... very high rocks... on the right was the river... a very steep ascent from which we got towards the top and had a most magnificent view... looking down the immense precipices into the valley below... came to another bridge the Pont Pelissier... on looking up we at once beheld the snowy summit of Mont Blanc just becoming visible through the mist... A little further on we first had a view of the Glaciers... We thus entered the Valley of Chamouni... " 9 September 1829, Montenvers Mer de Glace. "The view as we proceeded was extremely grand... below the village of Chamouni & the river Arve... from the path to the bottom it was in some places almost perpendicular... the height was 2025 feet above the valley... descended on the other side to the mer de glace. I went on it. I crossed some chasms... a most grand & curious place..." 1 October 1829, Châteaudun. "I stopped at the Grande Monarque where we got accommodations. The town is very ancient & some of the buildings much decayed... a spacious square where a market was held....a promenade... an ancient castle near it which belongs to the Duke..." [The Grand Monarque Hotel lived up to its name, being an immense sixteenth century building which was originally a baron's mansion, and was converted to a prestigious hotel in 1804. It was destroyed by fire by a group of German soldiers during the Franco-Prussian War on 18 Octobre 1870.] 2 October 1829, Rambouillet. "... there is a Royal Palace [Château de Rambouillet] where Francis 1st died & the present king come there very often..." 2 October 1829, St. Cloud. "... we saw some of the Royal party go away in a carriage of four. We then went to St. Cloud...walked round the outside & had a fine view of Paris... took the opportunity of seeing the grand display of China..." 4 October 1829, Paris. "Went to the English church in the Champs-Élysées..." 4 October 1829, Paris. "... the cemetery of Père Lachaise the place where the dead are burned... a variety of monuments of affluent forms & sizes & many vaults belonging to private families all above ground. Some are open to view & have a number of catacombs... altogether 140,000 monuments... some of the celebrated French Generals... there are 25 burials a day..." End Excerpts. The Kingdom of the Netherlands finds its origin in the aftermath of Napoleon's defeat in 1813. In March 1815, amidst the turmoil of the Hundred Days, the Sovereign Prince adopted the style of "King of the Netherlands". Following Napoleon's second defeat at the Battle of Waterloo, the Vienna Congress supplied international recognition of William's unilateral move. The new King of the Netherlands was also made Grand Duke of Luxembourg, a part of the Kingdom that was, at the same time, a member state of the German Confederation. In 1830, Belgium seceded from the Kingdom, a step that was recognised by the Netherlands only in 1839. At that point, Luxembourg became a fully independent country in a personal union with the Netherlands. Luxembourg also lost more than half of its territory to Belgium.

Les récits atroces de cette Histoire furent largement repris dans bien d'autres ouvrages, en particulier celui de Joseph Hansen sur la sorcellerie au Moyen Âge, "Sources and investigations regarding the history of obsessive belief in witches and witch hunts in the middle ages", qui devint à son tour une référence. Au bout du compte, les ouvrages de Lamothe-Langon furent à l'origine d'une part importante des "connaissances" du XXe siècle sur l'Inquisition, la sorcellerie, la torture et la jurisprudence médiévale. Cet ouvrage était supposé se baser sur des archives encore jamais exploitées du diocèse de Toulouse, mises à la disposition de l'auteur par l'évêque Hyacinthe Sermet. En fait Norman Cohn a démontré que l'auteur, romancier populaire et non historien, a falsifié l'histoire en décrivant des procès en masse de sorcières à Toulouse au XIIIe siècle. (Bibliothèque Frédéric et Anne MAX, N°390 ; Norman Cohn, Europe's Inner Demons, pp. 127-138). Dos des reliures uniformément passés, rousseurs éparses, restauration à un nerf du premier volume, néanmoins AGREABLE EXEMPLAIRE de cet ouvrage RARE. NICE COPY. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST.

In 1828, Hall visited Quebec, Pennsylvania, New York and the New England states, New Orleans, the Mississippi and the Ohio river valleys. "Accustomed to a better-disciplined society and bred in the exacting traditions of the British Navy, he found difficulty in adjusting himself to the democratic manners and rude accommodations he found in the United States, both North and South. Nevertheless, he was a clear and forceful writer, and his work contains many excellent descriptions of places and conditions that came under his observation" (Clark, Old South III, 48).

        Traité de la peinture. 9 volumes. Without the atlas.

      - Paris, J.F. Delion, 1829-1851. Sewn *text in all 9 volumes foxed; covers damaged, volumes 1 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 waterstained; volume 5 first pages damaged (without loss of text) text spotted; textblocks of volumes 5 and 9 broken, fair condition* Jacques-Nicolas Paillot est né le 6 décembre 1771 à Troyes, dans un hôtel particulier de la rue du Bourg-Neuf. Baptisé le 10 à l'église de la Madeleine, il a pour marraine sa tante Marie Madeleine Paillot et pour parrain le conseiller Jacques Corps, conseiller à la cour des Aides et époux de sa tante Madeleine Dessain. Il est le frère cadet de l'homme politique troyen Victor Paillot de Loynes (1713-1802)(.) Pendant la Restauration, il s'éloigne du Salon pour se lancer dans la rédaction de l'oeuvre pour laquelle il est essentiellement connu aujourd'hui, un Traité complet de la peinture en neuf volumes et un atlas de planches, publié en 1828-1829. L'éclectisme de ses intérêts s'y manifeste dans son attention à la fois à tous les aspects de la pratique picturale, aussi bien qu'aux théories de l'art et à son histoire.Wikipedia fr.
