        American Ornithology; or the Natural History of the Birds of the United States. Illustrated with plates engraved and coloured from original drawings taken from nature

      Collins & Co. and Harrison Hall, New York & Philadelphia 1829 - (text: 3 vols., quarto [10 5/8 x 8 1/4 inches]; plates: 1 vol. folio [14 5/16 x 11 inches]). Text: cxcix,[1],230,[1];456 [without a leaf number vii-viii, as usual];vi,396pp., 4pp. subscribers' list at rear of vol.III. (Some light spotting). Atlas: 76 hand-coloured engraved plates, some heightened with gum arabic, by A. Lawson (52), J.G. Warnicke (21), G. Murray (2), and B. Tanner (1), all after Wilson. Expertly bound to style in half red straight-grained morocco over period near-uniform marbled paper-covered boards, the flat spines with title lettered in gilt and a small decorative gilt oval containing the volume number The second full edition of Wilson's work, with plates in their most desirable form, and complete with an uncut copy of the text. "Science would lose little if every scrap of pre-Wilsonian writing about United States birds could be annihilated" (Coues). The first edition of Wilson's life-work was published in nine volumes between 1808 and 1814. The present edition was prepared by Wilson's friend and colleague, George Ord, who improved the work textually by re-arranging the work in a systematic order by species and by contributing an important "Sketch of the Author's Life" (pp.vii-cxcix in the first text volume) as well as numerous additional textual notes. He also notes in his preface to the first text volume that he arranged for the plates to be "carefully examined and retouched" by Alexander Lawson (the original engraver of most of the plates). Reading between the lines of Ord's preface, it is clear that he believed the plates in the present edition to be better than the first, and this is the current general view: it is noted in Fine Bird Books that "the plates [are] coloured better," and Wood writes: "The hand-colored drawings in the atlas are from the original copper plates, colored anew by pigments which seem to have been better quality than those used by Wilson." In addition to the coloring, better quality paper was used in this edition, thus avoiding the foxing which almost inevitably mars the first. Thus, this edition is more desirable than the first.

        Nouvelle grammaire grecque., Gail J.B. (1755-1829) Paris 1808

      Gail, Jean-Baptiste, 1755-1829 - Nouvelle grammaire grecque, a l'usage des lycées et autres écoles / par J.-B. Gail. Main Author: Gail, J.-B. Language(s): French Published: Paris : A. Delalain, 1808. Edition: 4. éd., revue, corrigée et augmentée. Note: Adoptée par le jury d'instruction publique. XIIIe volume de la collection in-8o. Physical Description: vij, 173 , 64 p., Jean-Baptiste Gail (1755–1829) was a French Hellenist scholar, member of the Institut de France (French Institute). Early years Gail was born in Paris on July 4, 1755. In 1791 he was appointed deputy, and in 1792 titular professor at the Collège de France. During the French Revolution, he maintained his professional duties, taking no part in politics, although he managed to ingratiate himself with those in authority. Career In 1815 he was appointed by King Louis XVIII of France to the post of keeper of Greek manuscripts in the royal library over the heads of the candidates proposed by the other conservators, an appointment which made him many enemies. Gail believed there was an organized conspiracy to belittle his learning and professional success, and there was a feud between him and his literary opponents, the most distinguished of whom was PL Courier. Achievements Without being a great Greek scholar, Gail was a hard worker, devoted to his favourite studies, and effectively rescued Greek from the neglect into which it had fallen during the revolutionary period. The list of Gail's published works filled 500 quarto pages of the introduction to his edition of Xenophon. The most notable of these is his edition of Theocritus (1828). He also wrote a number of elementary educational works, based on the principles of the school of Port-Royal. His communications to the Académie des Inscriptions being coldly received and seldom accorded the honour of print, he inserted them in a vast compilation in 24 volumes, which he called Le Philologue, containing a mass of ill-digested notes on Greek grammar, geography, archaeology, and various authors. A list of his works will be found in JM Quérard, La France littéraire (1829), including the contents of the volumes of Le Philologue.[1] Personal life and death Gail married singer and composer Sophie Gail and was the father of classicist Jean François Gail.[2] Jean-Baptiste died in Paris on February 5, 1829.

        Voyage dans la Basse et la Haute- Egypte, pendant les campagnes du général Bonaparte.

      Paris, Gaugain. 1829 - Recueil factice de 19 tirages sur Chine extraits de l' éd. de 1829 du voyage de Denon, (2 vol. in- 8 et un atlas in- folio), montés un par feuillet dans un album oblong br., (35 x 27 cm.) ; 1 f. bl.- (19) ff. non chiffrés- 1 f. bl. ; couv. muette de papier marbré. Adresse de J. Tastu, imprimeur, datée de Paris, août 1829 : "A MM. les Bibliophiles ; cette nouvelle édition, imprimée pour la première fois en deux volumes grand in- 8, a été tirée à 150 exemplaires, tous numérotés". Elle est la seule contenant les tirages sur Chine, montés, 2 ou 3 par feuillet, dans l' atlas in- f°. Nos 19 gravures sont de formats divers : 23 x 15,5 cm. ; 27,5 x 13,5 ; 14 x 10, etc., toutes sont d' après des dessins de Denon, 17 ont été gravées par lui, une par T. Johannot, (intérieur de harem), une autre par J.- J. Frilley, (paysage). La plupart des 17 sont signées "Denon Del. et Sculp", toutes sont manifestement de la même main, et toutes sont des portraits, uniquement des visages, par 3, 4, 5 et jusqu' à 9 par gravure. La vivacité du trait reflète bien l' état d' urgence constant dans lequel vivait Denon lors de son séjour mouvementé en Egypte, ainsi que la gourmandise insatiable du dessinateur. Cf. J.- M. Carré, "Voyageurs et écrivains français en Egypte", tome I, pp. 117 à 141. Brochage modeste et défraîchi ; bonne qualité des tirages ; qq. rares rousseurs sur les ff., aucune sur les gravures ; autres défauts mineurs ; bon ex. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Fauna del regno di Napoli, ossia enumerazione di tutti gli animali….

      Napoli, Tramater, (1829) 1832-1859. 11 volumes. 4to (270 x 220mm). With 377 mostly hand-coloured engraved plates. Later half vellum, gilt ornamented spines with 2 red gilt lettered labels. Copies of the above survey of the animal kingdom of Southern Italy are extremely rare. In the last decades only 2 copies have been offered for sale. We offered a copy in 1979 which had 380 plates and a copy was offered in the Bradley Martin sale (Sotheby's New York, December 12, 1989) with 384 plates. The Bradley Martin copy fetched $ 31.000 (without premium). As far as we can trace no complete copy of this work has been offered for sale. The work was published from 1832 to 1875 in 114 parts and Nissen gives a plate total of 408 plates. It was edited by Oronzio Gabriele Costa (1787-1867) professor at the University of Naples and continued by his son Achille Costa. Our set is almost complete up to the year 1859. Davies Sherborn in the 'Journal of the Soc. For Bibliography of Natural History' Vol. I, part 2 pp. 35-47 gives a detailed collation of the work. This is bibliographically a very complex work and the collations given vary. In several cases we have more plates or text than called for. Two volumes have the original half calf binding and in order to have a nicely uniform-bound set, slipcases have been made by a former owner, identical to the other volumes. A detailed collation of the work can be sent on request.//Nissen ZBi, 971; Wood 301, calling for 382 plates.

Contemporary half vellum, spine with red gilt lettered label, marbled sides. A very rare work on the Algae of the Kingdom of Naples and in particular of the Gulf of Naples. Stephano delle Chiaie (1794-1860) was an Italian naturalist. He was also the author of a major botanical work on medicinal plants 'Iconografia ed uso delle piante medicinali...' and the author of the third volume of Giuseppe Poli's famous work on shells 'Testacea utriusque Siciliae...' The present work is very scarce and the only reference we could find was a copy sold by Wheldon & Wesley in their catalogue 184 (1989) 'One of the rarest and finest books on algae'. The copy we offer is most likely the same copy as the one offered by Wheldon & Wesley as the binding is identical. "Dieses ist ein schönes Werk des unermüdlichen Verfassers, der schon so viel Grosses in der Zoologie geleistet hat. Die Abbildungen sind in natürlicher Grosse... Man bekommt ein gutes Bild von der sonderbaren Tracht dieser Gewächse" (Isis 1843 pp. 552-3). The allegorical title vignette is particularly charming and is by M. di Pietro. The detailed engravings are finely hand-coloured. //Nissen BBI, 464.

        Plantae Asiaticae Rariores; or, Descriptions and Figures of a select Number of unpublished East Indian Plants.

      London, Treuttel and Würtz, (1829-) 1830-32. 3 volumes. Large-folio (535 x 380mm). With one double-page map and 295 fine hand-coloured lithographed plates. Contemporary red half morocco, richly gilt decorated spines with gilt lettering in 6 compartments. A splendidly bound copy in mint condition of this sumptuously produced work on Indian plants and one of the great botanical books. Together with Roxburgh's 'Plants of the coast of Coromandel' (1795-1819) these works present the most splendid depictions of the Indian flora. Only 254 copies were printed./The plates were lithographed by Gauci after drawings by native artists. Vishnupersaud, whom Blunt describes as the finest of the Asian botanical artists of the time, contributed to the work, as well as to Roxburgh's 'Plants of the Coast of Coromandel', to which this work is, in many ways, a supplement. Wallich was superintendent of the Calcutta Botanic Garden from 1815 to 1846. He 'collected extensively and made many duplicates; these were distributed from London (after 1826) under the auspices of the East India Company' (Stafleu). "The work celebrates some of the spectacular finds by Wallich and his collectors... It was the last of the ambitiously conceived, extravagantly produced Indian floras" (Desmond, The European discovery of the Indian Flora p. 90). William Hooker comments as follows on the work "a work, which, whether for the beauty or rarity and interest of the subjects, the execution of the plates, or the accuracy of the descriptions, is surpassed by no publication of this, or any other period" (Botanical Miscellany, 2 1831). It is most unusual to find a copy without any foxing as the present one and of which the colouring is more elaborate and vivid than other copies we have sold in the past.//Nissen BBI,2099; Stafleu & Cowan 16.583; Great Flower Books p. 80.

        Fauna del regno di Napoli, ossia enumerazione di tutti gli animali

      - Napoli, Tramater, (1829) 1832-1859. 11 volumes. 4to (270 x 220mm). With 377 mostly hand-coloured engraved plates. Later half vellum, gilt ornamented spines with 2 red gilt lettered labels. Copies of the above survey of the animal kingdom of Southern Italy are extremely rare. In the last decades only 2 copies have been offered for sale. We offered a copy in 1979 which had 380 plates and a copy was offered in the Bradley Martin sale (Sotheby's New York, December 12, 1989) with 384 plates. The Bradley Martin copy fetched $ 31.000 (without premium). As far as we can trace no complete copy of this work has been offered for sale. The work was published from 1832 to 1875 in 114 parts and Nissen gives a plate total of 408 plates. It was edited by Oronzio Gabriele Costa (1787-1867) professor at the University of Naples and continued by his son Achille Costa. Our set is almost complete up to the year 1859. Davies Sherborn in the 'Journal of the Soc. For Bibliography of Natural History' Vol. I, part 2 pp. 35-47 gives a detailed collation of the work. This is bibliographically a very complex work and the collations given vary. In several cases we have more plates or text than called for. Two volumes have the original half calf binding and in order to have a nicely uniform-bound set, slipcases have been made by a former owner, identical to the other volumes. A detailed collation of the work can be sent on request.Nissen ZBi, 971; Wood 301, calling for 382 plates. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Storia naturale. Nuovamente ordinata e continuata per opera del C. di Lacepede.

      - Livorno, Tipografia Vignozzi, 1829 - 1833. Edizione adorna di rami. Opera in 54 tomi, in 12esimo, per un totale di 1092 pagine num. e 54 incisioni in antip. colorate a mano (uccelli, pesci mammiferi e fiori), bross. edit. coeva con sobrie decorazioni ai piatti e al dorso. Esemplari in barbe, finemente acquerellati e in buona conservazione, nonostante diffuse, normali macchiette di foxing ad alcune pagine. Georges - Louis Leclerc, conte di Buffon, nacque a Montbard in Borgogna nel 1707 e morì a Parigi nel 1788. Fu quindi contemporaneo di Linneo. Nel 1739 fu nominato intendente del Jardin du Royal di Parigi; a lui si deve la riorganizzazione di quell’istituto, chiamato poi Jardin des Plantes, e la fondazione del Muséum d’Histoire Naturelle di Parigi. Sarà proprio presso il Jardin des Plantes che Lamarck svolgerà le sue prime attività, ricevendo stima e ammirazione da Buffon. Buffon è soprattutto famoso per la sua opera maggiore, l’ "Histoire naturelle, générale et particulière" (Imprimerie Royale, 1749 - 1789). L’opera, che doveva comprendere tutti i regni della natura, comprende solo i minerali e una parte degli animali (quadrupedi e uccelli) e si compone di 36 voll. in 4to, così suddivisi: 15 volumi sui quadrupedi (dal 1749 al 1767); 9 volumi sugli uccelli (dal 1770 al 1783); 5 volumi sui minerali (dal 1783 al 1788; di cui l’ultimo contiene il "Traité de l’aimant", ultima opera di Buffon); 7 volumi di "Supplementi", tra i quali si trovano le"Époques de la nature" (1778), una delle più belle opere dell’Autore. Compaiono anche una "Théorie de la Terre" e i "Discours", sotto forma di introduzione. Buffon include nell’opera tutto il sapere dell’epoca nel campo delle scienze naturali, fecendo sì che essa conosca, fin da subito, un immenso successo. Nella "Histoire naturelle générale et particulière", L'Autore sottopone a minuziosa analisi descrittiva i vari aspetti del mondo naturale, rileva le somiglianze tra l’uomo e la scimmia e la possibilità di una genealogia comune; l’attenzione che Buffon accorda all’anatomia interna lo pone tra gli iniziatori dell’anatomia comparativa. 1. Buffon, per la genialità delle sue intuizioni , è considerato il più importante precursore di Lamarck e Darwin. L’opera fu continuata, nello stesso formato, da Lacépède, che descrisse gli ovipari, i serpenti, i pesci, i cetacei (1786 – 1804). Tra i suoi collaboratori, occorre citare, per i quadrupedi, Louis Jean - Marie Daubenton, che si incaricò della parte delle descrizioni anatomiche. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Autograph letter signed "Malibran" to "Monsieur [?Carlo] Severini."

      - 2 pp. of a bifolium with integral address panel. Quarto. N.d. [ca. 1829-1832]. In black ink. On stationery with watermark "Gaudin Fils 1828." In French (with translation).Although Malibran is once again confined to bed due to poor health, she will sing in several upcoming performances. "My health is about the same, given that yesterday I got out of bed for the first time and was obliged to return home very quickly. I am once again confined to bed. Nevertheless I expect to keep my word and take a chance Wednesday in the role of Zerlina [in Mozart's Don Giovanni] for our good [Carlo] Zucchelli. Saturday I will play Rosina [in Rossini's La Barbiere di Siviglia] if you do not object to this opera, which is the least tiring of all my roles and which will put me at least risk of a relapse. Please therefore put in all the newspapers that my perfomance will take place Sunday, because if you don't plan to announce it until Wednesday evening there will not be enough time to inform the public about it. Mr. [Charles] de Bériot is kindly taking charge of the letter I have addressed to Mr. [Louis] Véron. You will have the reply as soon as it is written to me."Slightly worn; creased at folds; small edge tears; occasional light smudging, not affecting legibility; lacking portion of central fold and right edge of first leaf, with loss of several words; remnants of wax seal and some offsetting and bleeding to blank third page. Together with:A carte de visite photographic reproduction of a bust-length lithograph of Malibran published by Pierre Petit in Paris. Ca. 102 x 59 mm. Slightly worn, soiled, and foxed; trimmed and laid down to mount. Spanish mezzo-soprano Maria Malibran was the daughter of tenor and composer Manuel Garcia the Elder, and sister of the famed singers Pauline Viardot (1821-1910) and Manuel Garcia the Younger (1805-1906). She made her London début at the King';s Theatre in June 1825 as Rosina (Il barbiere), and "her Paris début at the Théâtre Italien in Semiramide in 1828, where she also created the title role in Halévy';s Clari (1828). She reappeared at the King';s Theatre in 1829 in Otello, and then sang alternately in Paris and London until 1832, when she went to Italy. She also created the title role in Donizetti';s Maria Stuarda on 30 December 1835, causing a famous scandal by ignoring some changes that the Milanese censors had insisted upon. Bellini adapted the role of Elvira in I puritani (1835, Paris) for her to sing in Naples, but the opera was turned down by the management and she never sang it. Her first marriage having eventually been annulled, she married the violinist Charles de Bériot [1802-1870] in March 1836, and at Drury Lane in May of that year created the title role in Balfe';s The Maid of Artois, which he had written for her. A riding accident when she was pregnant resulted in her death during the Manchester Festival. To judge from the parts adapted for her by both Donizetti and Bellini, the compass (g to e ), power and flexibility of Malibran';s voice were extraordinary. Her early death turned her into something of a legendary figure with writers and poets during the later 19th century." Elizabeth Forbes in Grove Music Online.The recipient of this letter was most likely Carlo Severini, co-director of the Théâtre Italien in Paris from 1825 until 1838. "[His] tenure was one of the high points in the history of the Théâtre Italien, a period that featured the Parisian premières of works such as Anna Bolena and La sonnambula, the world première of I puritani and regular appearances by such great singers as Grisi, Rubini, Tamburini and Lablache. In [1838] Severini met a premature death in a fire at the theatre, apparently in an attempt to save administrative papers." Steven Huebner in Grove Music Online.Louis Véron (1798-1867) was director of the Paris Opéra from 1831-1835. "He was the first director to be permitted to operate the institution as a private enterprise, albeit with a large state subsidy and survei

Contemporary half calf, gilt banded spine, dark red morocco label, marbled sides, red speckled edges. Contemporary armorial bookplate of Alexander Gordon (of Auchlunies), uncle to Sir Alexander Gordon, Wellington's chief ADC.

First edition of this extremely uncommon Peninsula memoir, Copac citing just three locations in British and Irish institutional libraries (Scotland, Glasgow, Liverpool), OCLC adding only National Library of Ireland and New York Public Library. William Brown (b. 1788) had worked in a woollen milll before enlisting and served with the 45th (the Nottinghamshires), a regiment that fought in every major action of the Peninsular War, winning the nickname "Old Stubborns" at Talavera. He had obviously fallen on hard times and had a wife and four daughters to support, as the verse appeal at the end of the book makes clear. His book is cited several times by Gavin Daly in The British Soldier in the Peninsular War: Encounters with Spain and Portugal, 1808-1814, 2013).
