        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.

        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.

"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".

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.

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.

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.

        HISTOIRE DE L'INQUISITION EN FRANCE. [3 volumes].

      1829A Paris, chez J.-G. Dentu, 1829. Trois volumes in-8 (142 X 216) demi-maroquin violine, dos quatre nerfs ornés de filets perlés et sertis de filets dorés, auteur, titre et tomaison dorés, fleuron doré dans les compartiments (reliure de l'époque) ; TOME I : faux-titre, titre, CVII pages (préface), 398 pages ; TOME II : faux-titre, titre, 662 pages, 1 feuillet (errata) ; TOME III : faux-titre, titre, 621 pages, 3 pages non chiffrées (catalogue éditeur). EDITION ORIGINALE. Cet ouvrage très complet couvre le sujet depuis les poursuites et confiscations exercées contre les Albigeois en 1178 jusqu'à l'abolition de l'Inquisition par ordonnance de Louis XV en 1772. Il donne, en dernière partie, un tableau chronologique des évènements relatifs à l'Inquisition, ainsi qu'un index des noms et lieux cités. 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).

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.

        Scene eseguite pel melodramma serio L'ultimo giorno di Pompei. Milan, no printer, [1829].

      1829. Oblong folio (485 x 406 mm). Ms. title page, 1 tinted and 8 hand-coloured aquatints by A. Sanquirico (all on paper with watermark "J. Whatman, Turkey Mill"); tissue guards preserved throughout. Contemp. green boards with elaborate gilt neo-classical decoration. In same-coloured original slipcase. Alessandro Sanquirico's impressive stage designs for Pacini's "L'Ultimo Giorno di Pompei" as performed at the Milan Scala in 1827 were never sold in the regular book trade, as Nagler and Wurzbach confirm - even the title page was drawn by hand, which explains the several slightly different wordings of the very few copies that can be traced. The plates show scenes from the opera against splendid neo-classical architecture; the actors are depicted in elaborate costume, and there is an impressive view of Vesuvius erupting. - Sanquirico is considered the best stage designer of his time. From 1817 to 1832 he was "scenografico unico" at the Milano "Scala", where he was much admired for his inexhaustible production of new creations. "He is a master of perspective, and a painter of the finest taste; capable of creating magical effects through colour and light. Every one of his decorations is possessed of a unique magic and rich versatility of invention. There was not an opera in which Sanquirico, apart from the celebrated singers, did not also celebrate his triumph" (Nagler). "La sua attività coincise con uno dei periodi più interessante della lirica italiana, quando ai nomi ormai famosi di Mayr, Mozart e Meyerbeer si alternavano quelli di Rossini, Bellini, Donizetti e Pacini, e il balletto italiano trovava la sua nova espressione nelle pantomime eroiche" (Enc. dello Spettacolo). For this present album, Sanquirico used the best paper available, the strong velin made by the Turkey Mill on which James Audubon also printed his 'Birds of America' (cf. Bannon/Clark, Handbook of Audubon Prints, 35). The colouring is masterfully executed, showing exceptional brilliance; hundreds of fine hues lend these scenes a unique beauty and atmospheric splendour. - Some staining to endpapers; otherwise an immaculate copy in the original boards as issued. Removed from the library of the Dukes of Bavaria at Tegernsee castle. Wurzbach XXVIII, 196. Nagler XVI, 135. Enc. dello Spettacolo VIII, 1483.

        Les Metamorphoses du jour

      1829. first edition. Exceedingly ScarceFirst Edition of Grandville's Les Metamorphoses du JourGRANDVILLE, J.J. (Illustrator). Les Metamorphoses du jour. Paris: Chez Bulla, 1829. The exceptionally rare first edition of this famous series of political caricatures. Oblong folio (10 3/16 x 13 1/4 inches; 258 x 338 mm.). Original lithographed front wrapper dated 1829 bound in at front (expertly restored at top margin just touching title). One leaf of letterpress with the Preface by Achille Comte, and seventy-one hand-colored lithographed plates.Bound ca. 1880 in half medium green morocco over green patterned boards, ruled in gilt. Spine with five raised bands elaborately tooled and lettered in gilt in compartments, marbled end-papers. Small circular book-plate on front paste-down. Plates 42 & 49 very slightly shorter on lower margin, plate 70 with upper corner (2 x 1 inches) torn away, not affecting image. Some sporadic and very light water-staining to top margins of a few plates. Very scarce in this, the first edition. This copy bound without his two final plates ('Famille des scarabées' no. 72) and state ('Une bête féroce,' no. 73) which were not permitted in France."This famous album, which established Granville's early stye of bitter burlesque, has become rare. Indeed, it is known to many of his admirers only through the greatly inferior album of seventy wood-engraved reproductions published by Harvard in 1854?Lust, gluttony, anger, and the other deadly sins are stigmatized, now with the blow of a hammer, now with the thrust of a stiletto; while the foibles and humors of mankind also receive due attention. Throughout the series Grandville's choice of beast-heads is inspired; and the force of his conceptions and the wit of his captions rarely falter. Occasionally, he produces a design of universal application that calls Goya to mind, as in the bat and owl creatures bewildered by the sunshine of 'The light that hurts them' (no. 12). Perhaps his most terrifying plate is 'Ménagerie (no. 67), which shows four prison cells. In the first are complacent commercial offenders, enjoying all the comforts of home; in the second violent criminals, sly or stupid; in the third murderers, one with a countenance of the utmost ferocity; in the forth, political prisoners, quiet and despondent?Granville turned to direct political satire in his final plates, but the publication of his onslaughts on church ('Famille des scarabées' no. 72) and state ('Une bête féroce,' no. 73) was not permitted in France" (Ray).Vicaire V, 775-780.

        Il costume antico e moderno o storia del governo, della milizia, della religione, delle arti, scienze ed usanze di tutti i popoli antichi e moderni provata coi monumenti dell' antichita e rappresentata cogli analoghi disegni. Milan, tipografia dell'editore, 1829-1834.

      1829. Folio (380 x 265 mm). 37 vols. incl. supplements and index. With 7 engr. folding maps, 5 engr. maps, 1619 coloured aquatints (2 double-page-sized), 2 engr. portraits, 2 engr. plates of musical notes, and 4 tables. Late 19th century half calf with giltstamped spine title. Untrimmed. Without question the largest pictorial encyclopedia of the world published during the 19th century, and one of the rarest works to be found complete. Printed in a press run of no more than 300 copies, this set is numbered "12" and was inscribed to a friend of the author ("del socio Signor G. Ferrario"); as such, it was printed on superior paper and coloured particularly carefully (according to Brunet, most of the 300 copies produced were issued entirely uncoloured). The purpose of this 37-volume set in large folio format was to provide a complete account of all known parts of the world not only by describing in detail the various peoples' costumes, governments, religion, habits, military, arts and science, but also by showing them in splendid illustrations, all of which are here individually coloured by hand. The engravings include not only many costumes, but also buildings, objects of religious and of everyday use, monuments, historical scenes and much more. The plates are printed on wove paper and bear the publisher's drystamp. In spite of the enormous number of plates, the colouring is meticulous throughout. - Initially planned for no more than 13 volumes (1816-1827) and also published in French, this present Italian edition is the only one that was issued complete with all supplements and the plates in their impressive folio format. - Of the utmost rarity: we could not trace a single complete copy on the market since 1950. Auction records list only the abridged 8vo reprint or single volumes of the present folio edition (Sotheby's, May 28, 2002, lot 426: £8,720 for vol. I, pt. 3 only). Interior shows occasional slight foxing to blank margins. Altogether an excellent, complete set of the luxury edition: uniformly bound, untrimmed and wide-margined. Ibrahim-Hilmy I, 231.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("I. Moscheles") Hannover, 18. XII. 1829.

      1829. 2 SS. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt. Gr.-4to. Mit eh. Adresse am Gegenblatt verso (Faltbrief). Schöner, ausführlicher Brief an den Wiener Komponisten Joseph Merk (1795-1852): "Sie haben mir recht viele Freude durch [Ihr] freundschaftliches Schreiben gemacht, u. doppelt genoß ich es da ich daraus noch immer den jovialen humoristischen alten Aventure-Kameraden erkannte. Meine Antwort erfolgte so spät weil ich Ihren Brief erst vor 8 Tagen in Hamburg fand als ich von einer großen Reise aus Dänemark und Schweden zurück kam. Es blieb mir daher nur Zeit meine Sinfonie schnell in Stimmen abschreiben zu lassen, und gestern expedirte ich sie per Post an Sie adressirt. Ich hoffe Sie erhalten sie mit diesem Briefe zugleich. Es gewährt mir große Beruhigung daß meine erste Arbeit in diesem Fache durch Ihre Hände der Gesellschaft des. k. k. Oesterr. Musikvereins zur Dedikation angeboten und zur Aufführung gebracht werden soll. Ihre Theilnahme und Freundschaft wird sich gewiß wieder dabey bewähren. Ich erwarte mir nicht daß dieses Werk in einer Stadt wo Haydn, Mozart und Beethovens Sinfonien das Tageslicht erblickt haben, einiges Aufsehen mache; sondern daß meine Freunde sehen mögen daß es mir nicht an guten Willen und Fleiß fehlt, zuweilen etwas besseres zu schreiben, als Bijoux à la Sontag. - Es wäre gut die Stimme in Partitur zu setzen für den Dirigenten, auch die erste Probe mit dupplirten streichenden Instrumenten zu machen, indem die Blasenden sehr stark benützt sind u. ein starkes streichendes Chor erfordern. Das Tempo ist in der Violin 1mo Stimme nach Maelzels Metronom angegeben. Wenn Sie mir über den Erfolg Ihrer Verwendungen etwas werden sagen könnnen, so bitte ich mir nach London zu schreiben [...]. In Copenhagen hatte ich eine angenehme Aufnahme u. spielte bey Hofe, wofür ich vom König eine goldene emaillirte Dose und vom Prinzen Christian einen Brillant Ring bekam. Meine Zeit war zu kurz um in Schweden weiter vorzurücken als bis nach Gothenburg wo ich in der Schnelligkeit ein gutes Concert machte. Grüßen Sie mir Herrn Haslinger [...]". - Moscheles war am Prager Konservatorium Schüler von Dionys Weber, in Wien von Johann Georg Albrechtsberger und Antonio Salieri "und gehörte bald zu den beliebtesten Pianisten und Lehrern Wiens" (DBE). 1825 übersiedelte er nach London, wo er zu den führenden Persönlichkeiten des Musiklebens zählte und als Professor an der Royal Academy of Music und als Mitdirektor und Dirigent der Royal Philharmonic Society tätig war. 1843 verpflichtete ihn sein ehemaliger Schüler und Freund Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy als Klavierlehrer an das Leipziger Konservatorium. Mit seinem Schaffen zählt Moscheles zu den bedeutendsten Pianisten seiner Zeit. - Kleine Papierdurchbrüche in den Bugfalten; kl. Randausriss von Siegelöffnung (keine Textberührung); eine Bugfalte im Gegenblatt alt hinterlegt.

      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 LordGrace is in all her steps;Heaven in her eye;In all her conductDignity and Love. Milton (i.e. John Milton)To woman's gentle care we oweAll that delights and glads us hereThey its young hopes in youth bestow and age they soothe and care they cheerAnother 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. Sheffield Conference.An Anti-Xtian Soliluquy.As I walked by myself,I said to myselfAnd myself said the same thing to me;Look well to thyself,Take Care of thyself,For no one takes care of thee.Radford, John (1784-1848). Radford was converted under the ministry of the famous Henry Moore, and took up an itinerancy in 1807. He served in England and Wales for over 40 years before dying quite suddenly of Cholera.11 lines, dated August 12, 1829.The Name of JesusWhat sounds so sweet as Jesus' nameMongst all the notes of harp & lyreCherubic strains, seraphic flameWithout it would but ???? and tire 'Tis his dear name my soul inspiresWith raptures nought but heaven can tellO may I catch celestial fires and then this music I will swellKeeling Isaac (1789-1870). President of the Conference in 1855 ... the famous Thomas Cooper notes him as having been solemn-looking and solemn-preaching with 'a rare canister of brains.'13 lines, dated August 11th, 1829. Sheffield.As perspicuity is the first excellence of style, so is legibility of hand writing. Now, as these qualities are attainable by all who seem them with due perseverance, does not their rarity render it probably that the good sense which justly values and effectually pursues them is almost as uncommon as genius?Beecham, John (1787-1856). John Beechman was born in Barnoldby le Beck in Lincolnshire. He was converted in 1812 and entered the Wesleyan ministry three years later. From 1831 to 1855 Beecham served as a general secretary of the Wesleyan Methodist Missionary Society and proved an excellent organiser with a good eye for detail. He was particularly active in strengthening missionary work in the West Indies and was prominent in the drawing up of constitutions for Conferences in France, Australia and Canada. A close friend of Jabez Bunting, Beecham was a staunch supporter of the Connexion's conservative wing. He published a well known Essay on the Constitution of Wesleyan Methodism in 1829 and an edition of John Wesley's sermons. Beecham served as President of Conference in 1850.Hammet, William. Yet another eminent 19th century Methodist . . . probably the namesake of the notorious companion of Thomas Coke who almost split the American Methodist movement during the late 18th century. 24 lines, dated August 1829. Sheffield Conference.There are a few of those mentioned in the Scriptures, whose character is presented in a more interesting light than that of the sisters of Lazarus. Of them it is said that "Jesus loved them." We naturally inquire what it was that secured this honourable distinction; and why Mary seemed to have been preferred by our Lord to her sister. The reason obviously is, that the sisters secured the visits of their Lord, waited on him with delight, and Mary preferred a seat at his feet, and the instruction of his lips to everything else beside. Never does Jesus look with so much delight on a young female as when she sits at his feet and fervently prays for herself and others. O tis' then to her that Heaven brightens with the smile of love!Jackson, Samuel. An early Methodist theolgian, author and translator. Nice holograph of a Wesley hymn. 9 lines, dated August 12, 1829. Sheffield.O never in these veils of shameSad fruits of sin, my glorying be;Clothed with salvation, through thy name My soul, and let me put on thee Be living faith my costly dressAnd by best robe thy righteousness.-WesleyMontgomery, James. Of course this the famous Moravian hymnist. . a lovely 4 stanza holograph. 20 lines, dated August 12, 1829. Sheffield.Graces.With manna in the wildernessWith water from the rockShepherd of souls, refresh and blessThy hungering, thirsting flock.Thy blessing with our foodMost humbly we implore That we may taste immortal goodNor thirst, no hunger more. While by the bounty fedOur Souls would love in TheeLord, evermore give us that breadWhich lasts eternally.We would not live by bread aloneBut by that word of graceIn strength in which we travel on To our abiding place.Clarke, Adam. This of course the famous Methodist theologian and commentator. A most interesting iece. These words were of course finally made most famous by Frederick m. Lehman. but they originate not even as Clarke intimates, but even earlier with an 11th century Jewish author, originally written in Aramaic by Meir Ben Isaac Nehorai, ca. 1050.15 lines, dated September 5th, 1829. BristolCould we with ink the ocean fillWere the whole earth of parchment madeWere every stick of wood a quillWere every man a Scribe by tradeTo write the love of God aboveWould drain the oceans dryNor could the scrollContain the wholeTho' stretched from sky to sky.Taken originally from the Italian of Guarini, beginning thus: Sitatti gli alberi &c.Exley, Thomas. Another important Wesleyan, Exley sided with Adam Clarke (who later wrote published his memoir) against Henry Moore and Bunting.12 lines, dated September 9th, 1829. Bristol.The Christian religion manifests itself to those who possess it, in the goodness of its principle, the righteousness of the practice, and the clearness and evidence of its truth, with the happiness which it produces.Hemans, Felicia Dorothea Brown (1793-1835). Very fine three page holograph poem/hymn apparently in her hand. There is another small signature on the lower right of the last page, but it appears to be in a completely difference hand. During the period this album was compiled she was living ouside of Liverpool, so easily could have been present either at Sheffield or Bristol for the connexional conferences.The Better LandI hear thee speak of the better landThou call'st its children a happy bandMother, Oh where is the radiant shore?Shall we not seek it, and ???? no moreIs it where the flower of the orange blowsAnd the fire flies glance through the myrtle boughsNot there, not there, my childIs it where the feathery ???? trees riseAnd the date grows up under sunny skies?Or 'midst the green islands of glittering seas Where fragrant forests perfume the breezeA strange, bright birds on their starry wingsBear the rick hues of all glorious things?Not there, not there, my child.Etc. etc. 2 more stanzas in a beautiful script hand.Nunn, Marianne (1788-1847). Possibly a poem by the authoress of the famous hymn, One there is above all others.; Signed only M.N. 2pp title To a Queen Anne Guinea on Devoting it to the Missionary Cause.Wilberforce, William. An excised free rank, dated to London, 1790, neatly tipped in to the album.Rattenbury, John. John Rattenbury (1806-1879) joined the Wesleyan Methodist Society in Manchester at the age of sixteen, and began to preach three years later. He trained for the ministry under the Rev. Joseph Roberts and was appointed to his first circuit in 1828. He was highly regarded as a minister and was an effective evangelist who was well-known for inspiring revivals such as the one that occurred during his ministry in Leeds in 1837. He was elected President of the Conference in 1851. He withdrew from circuit work in 1873 and spent the last six years of his life raising money for Worn out Ministers' and Ministers' Widows' Auxiliary Fund. 44 lines, dated March 5th, 1831. Wolverhampton.Boldly signed, the 40 line text consists of a poetic paraphrase of the 137th Psalm, apparently written by Rattenbury himself. Slight, Frederick. A well-regarded early 19th century Wesleyan divine. Emory-Pitt hold him in their image archive of important early Methodists etc.44 lines, July 28th, 1832. Wolverhampton.The whole consisting of a paraphrase of Luke 2:8-14 in poetic verse, again, presumably composed impromptu by the author.Lieder, John Rudolph Theophilus (1798-1865). Born in Prussia, Lieder was an important pioneering Church Missionary Society missionary in Egypt. After 35 years labor in Egypt, he contracted Cholera and died in the field he had already given his life to. A very rare and important autograph.6 lines, November 20th, 1832. Exeter.The things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.Newton, Robert (1780-1854). An important early Methodist. He began his itinerancy in 1799. He was a close friend and partner in the fray with Jabez Bunting and, in addition to serving 4 times as President of the Conference, was its longest serving Secretary of the Conference. He was easily the most popular Methodist preacher of the era and was always noted for his evangelical, experimental and practical style.9 lines, May 1, 1834. Taunton.The Lord will have the heart entire or none, and yet he will accept a broken one. For the sacrifice of a broken and contrite heart O God thou wilt not despise.Farrar, A.E. An early eminent Wesleyan who appears in the Engravings of British Methodist Clergy, etc. A very witty bit.12 lines, May 10th, 1836. Bath.ALBUMMuch as I wish to please my friend and I really hope she believes itUnable I am and it is all I can say, but my friend will at once perceive itBy an poor efforts of mine or my pen to please in the way suggestedLittle used as I am such tasks to perform tho' often alas requested.And therefore I hope she'll consent to receive this apology now - as all I can give.Gavazzi, Alessandro (1809-89). Italian preacher and patriot. A Barnabite monk, he left the order in 1848. His liberal ideas and disillusionment with the social order in Italy led him to emigrate from the Papal States of London, where he jointed the Italian Protestant community and led an anti papal campaign. Upon his return to ITaly (1859) he was twice Giuseppe Garibaldi's army chaplain (1860,1866). Later he organized in Rome the Free Christian Church in Italy, also known as the Evangelical Church in Italy. He was instrumental in the foothold of Evangelicalism in Italy. 5 lines, June 1880. All in Latin, then signed Alysandro Gavazzi.Fox, William Buckley. Very fine and important full autographed page by one of the pioneer missionaries to India (specifically Sri Lanka/Ceylon) with Joshua Marsden etc. Full sheet recounts in what appears to be Tamil, the 5 Commands of Budhu (as he was then variously referred to, also Boodha, Boodhu, etc.) with English transliterations, then English translations.Signed Tiveston (his hometown), October 24th 1833.Etc. etc. etc. plus several very fine miniature drawings and various other poems probably extracted from elsewhere and written by prominent Methodists, but only initialed.

        Raccolta di varie decorazioni sceniche inventate e dipinte per l'I. R. Teatro alla Scala. [Milan, no printer, 1818-1829].

      1829. Oblong folio (485 x 405 mm). T. p. and 62 engr., hand-coloured etchings by A. Sanquirico (all on paper with watermark "J. Whatman, Turkey Mill"); tissue guards (watermark "FB") preserved throughout. Contemp. green boards with elaborate gilt neo-classical decoration. In same-coloured original slipcase. First edition of Sanquirico's synoptic collection of his work, complete in 62 plates, never sold in the regular book trade and presented by the artist only to highest dignitaries. "La grandiosa collezione del Sanquirico, in fogli di grande formato, stampati e colorati con estrema cura, era evidentemente destinata a clienti 'facoltosi'" (Ferrero). In 1818 Sanquirico set out to publish all the theatre decorations he had executed. The inked and coloured series of etchings was completed in 1829. Sanquirico is considered the best stage designer of his time. From 1817 to 1832 he was "scenografico unico" at the Milano "Scala", where he was much admired for his inexhaustible production of new creations. "He is a master of perspective, and a painter of the finest taste; capable of creating magical effects through colour and light. Every one of his decorations is possessed of a unique magic and rich versatility of invention. There was not an opera in which Sanquirico, apart from the celebrated singers, did not also celebrate his triumph" (Nagler). "La sua attività coincise con uno dei periodi più interessante della lirica italiana, quando ai nomi ormai famosi di Mayr, Mozart e Meyerbeer si alternavano quelli di Rossini, Bellini, Donizetti e Pacini, e il balletto italiano trovava la sua nova espressione nelle pantomime eroiche" (Enc. dello Spettacolo). For this present album, Sanquirico used the best paper available, the strong velin made by the Turkey Mill on which James Audubon also printed his 'Birds of America' (cf. Bannon/Clark, Handbook of Audubon Prints, 35). The colouring is masterfully executed, showing exceptional brilliance. Hundreds of fine hues - in the tropical flora, in the precious costumes of the exotic peoples, in the luminescent pink clouds over the evening landscapes - lend these scenes a unique beauty and atmospheric splendour. - Immaculate, entirely spotless copy in the original boards as issued. Merely the matching slipcase shows traces of restoration, otherwise entirely untouched. - Removed from the library of the Dukes of Bavaria at Tegernsee castle. Wurzbach XXVIII, 196. Nagler XVI, 135. Enc. dello Spettacolo VIII, 1483. M. V. Ferrero, La Scenografia della Scala nell'età neoclassica, Milan 1983, 91-140.

        Journal des dames et des modes. 72 livraisons.

      Paris CARPENTIER-MÉRICOURT. 1829 1Paris, Imprimerie de Carpentier-Méricourt, 1829, in-12 épais, demi-basane fauve à coins, double filet doré, dos à 4 nerfs, tranches marbrées, 576 pp., pl. 2660-2755. 33e année 5 janvier 1829 au 20 décembre 1829 N°1 à 72. Complet de tous les numéros. Tampon de "Timbre Royal" apposé sur chaque "Journal". Le Journal des Dames et des Modes paraît tous les 5 jours, contient 8 pp. de texte et 2 gravures (8 par mois, six costumes féminins, un costume masculin et une planche de chapeaux). Cet hebdomadaire a paru de 1797 à 1839. La parution de ce journal correspond à la reprise de la presse féminine après la Terreur. La mode Directoire est particulièrement riche et ses excentricités justifient pleinement la création d'un nouveau journal. Pierre de la Mésangère en devient le directeur et la longévité de sa revue fera dire à ses contemporains : "A celui-là [Napoléon] la conquête de l'Europe masculine l'Europe féminine échut à celui-ci. Et faut-il le dire, Napoléon a perdu ses conquêtes, celles de M de la Mésangère nous sont restées." De 1797 à 1831, le titre du périodique n'est pas indiqué sur les planches, détachées du texte pour les identifier, on trouve au centre la mention "Costume Parisien", au pluriel s'il y a plusieurs costumes. Des plumes de qualité y participent, comme BALZAC a ses débuts (de manière anonyme), ou VERNET. Les planches 2657, 2658 et 2659, mentionnées dans le 1er numéro, manquent. Restaurations au dos, quelques usures à la couverture.
