        The Virginia Literary Museum and Journal of Belles Lettres, Arts & c.

      University of Virginia, 1829 - 1830, Charlottesville, Virginia: - Thirty seven of only 52 issues of the literary magazine published by the faculty of the University, with the ownership signature on several numbers of Judge William H. Cabell (1772 - 1853), former Virginia governor who helped choose the site for the University. An early look at the perspective of the faculty of Mr. Jefferson's University, which includes an article on Australian advertising and Australian newspaper reporting in the very first number. The article cites examples of amusing Australian advertising and reporting, and goes on to note, "there is no reason, indeed, why that distant country should not hereafter be a seat of the Muses. It is situated in a heavenly climate, and is possessed of the most singular anomalies especially in the animal and vegetable parts of the creation -- birds without wings, as large as Deer, their bodies covered with hair instead of feathers .where the swans are black and the eagles white: where the Kangaroo, an animal between the squirrel and the Deer, has five claws on its fore paws and three talons on its hind legs, like a bird and yet hops on its tail: where the Mole (Ornithorhynchus paradoxus), lays eggs, and has a Duck's bill ." (p8).The Virginia Literary Museum commenced in June 1829, and concluded in May of 1830. This volume includes the first number (the first 2 pages in facsimile), and covers a wide range of international and local topics, including slavery, Jefferson's Memoir and correspondence, education, the Virginia state constitutional convention, sugar, coffee, gold mining in North Carolina, encouraging manufacturing in Virginia and Australian advertising and newspaper reporting.Includes a multipart series titled "The Policy of Encouraging Manufactures", which supports among other views the notion of Virginia manufacturing capacity being equal to that of Great Britain (p60). The author goes on to counter the objection to the use of slave labor in manufacturing, citing as evidence: "as further proof that slaves are not unfit for the operations of a manufactory, it may be mentioned that children are more or less employed in all of them, and they cannot be supposed to have more motives to labour than slaves, more care, or foresight, or interest in the success of their labours." (p61)The Volume I Numbers included here are: 1 (facsimile pages 1-2), 4 - 13, 15, 16, 18 - 27, 29, 31 and 40. 8vo, each Number approximately 16pp. Gray modern cloth binding, title printed at spine. Library label at front paste down, and library stamps. Inner hinges starting. A bit ruffled at edges, occasional fox spotting, and the last page of Number 31 torn horizontally with no loss of text.

        The turf expositor; containing the origin of horse racing, breeding for the turf, training, trainers, jockeys; cocktails, and the system of cocktail racing illustrated; the turf and its abuses; the science of betting money, so as always to come off a winner, elucidated by a variety of examples; the rules and laws of horse racing; and every other information connected with the operations of the turf.

      8vo., contemporary linen backed boards with paper spine label. pp. x, 180 [12] adverts (dated Nov 1929). Covers rubbed, slight bumping to corners, and paper spine label a little chipped, some browning and spotting, a good copy of a scarce item. First edition. A most informative volume on all aspects of horse racing, including betting. The author is forthright in his opinions. In his thumbnail descriptions of race tracks he comments on Epsom racecourse "Epsom Course can be properly called neither circular, oval, or triangular. It is altogether one of the worst courses in England". Talking about jockeys he comments "The third or Dirty class are remarkable for their slovenly, dirty and unworkmanlike appearance;- it is no uncommon occurrence to see these wretched apologies for Jockeys ride in dirty jackets, dark greasy corduroys, and gaiters of similar complexion". In his chapters on betting the author goes into some depth on the multiplication and division of vulgar fractions.

        Manuscript Journal - Travels Through Germany Switzerland, France & Belgium By Carriage

      Switzerland, 1829. 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'. Wear to extremities and spine, otherwise in very good condition, 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 abdicatio, 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 and 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 commemoraton 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.

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.

"... 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... lookinmg 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. . Very Good.

        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.

        Hydrophytologiae Regni Neapolitani. Algarum Regni Neapolis descriptiones et Icones.

      Neapoli, ex Typographia Cataneo et Fernandes, 1829. Folio (408 x 255mm). pp. (2), 16, 11, (1), with hand-coloured engraved title, and 100 hand-coloured engraved 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.

G Lockhart (1829)Volume III: Alexander The Great? by John Williams (1829):Volumes IV, X, XIX, XXVII, XXXVIII: British Painters, Sculptors and Architects by Allan Cunnigham(1829-1833)Volume VIII: The Court and Camp of Buonaparte by S.

        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
