        Le Robinson Suisse, ou Journal d'un Pere de Famille Naufrage avec ses Enfans. In five volumes, bound as three

      Paris - Arthus Bertrand 1830 - A wonderful copy of Isabelle de Montolieu's adaptation of Wyss's classic family adventure story. Translated out of the German by M. Viss. With a frontispiece to each title, and fouradditional plates, including one folding map. Complete in five volumes bound as three. The Swiss Family Robinson (German: Der Schweizerische Robinson) is a novel, first published in 1812, about a Swiss family shipwrecked in the East Indies en route to Port Jackson, Australia. Written by Swiss pastor Johann David Wyss and edited by his son Johann Rudolf Wyss, the novel was intended to teach his four sons about family values, good husbandry, the uses of the natural world and self-reliance. Wyss's attitude toward education is in line with the teachings of Jean-Jacques Rousseau, and many of the episodes have to do with Christian-oriented moral lessons such as frugality, husbandry, acceptance, cooperation, etc. It is said that Wyss was inspired by Defoe's Robinson Crusoe, but wanted to write a story from which his own children would learn, as the father in the story taught important lessons to his children. The Swiss Family Robinson has become one of the most popular books of all time. Isabelle de Montolieu (1751-1832) was a Swiss novelist and translator. She wrote in and translated to the French language. Montolieu penned a few original novels and over 100 volumes of translations. She wrote the first French translation of Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility (Raison et Sensibilit, ou Les Deux Manires d'Aimer) and Persuasion (La Famille Elliot, ou L'Ancienne Inclination). One of her translations to French - Johann David Wyss's German-language The Swiss Family Robinson (Le Robinson suisse, ou, Journal d'un pre de famille, naufrag avec ses enfans) - was adapted and expanded by her with original episodes more than once. Montolieu's French version is the literal source of still frequently reprinted English translations - for example William H. G. Kingston's 1879 version, one of the most popular in English over the years, is actually a translation of Montolieu's French adaptation. Condition: In half calf bindings with marbled boards. Externally sound although rubbed. Front hinge of volume I held by one cord only. Internally, firmly bound. Very bright, and generally clean aside from a few scattered spots. Copperplate ink signature to front pastedown of volume I. Small closed tear to folding map. Overall: VERY GOOD [Attributes: Hard Cover]

He was born at Southampton and educated at Winchester College and at Trinity College, Oxford. He was elected fellow of Oriel in 1798, and afterwards took orders, holding a curacy at Southampton in 1802. In 1808 he published The Simpliciad, this satirical poem was addressed in verse to William Wordsworth, Robert Southey and Samuel Taylor Coleridge, with notes relating to his parodies and allusions to the originals. He was appointed to the vicarage of Coggeshall, Essex in (1810) and in 1811 he became Bampton Lecturer. In 1816 was made rector of St Botolph's, and in 1820 became Bishop of Killaloe and Kilfenoragh, (Ireland). In 1823 he was moved to the diocese of Down and Connor, to which the diocese of Dromore was added in 1842. In collaboration with the Reverend George D'Oyly, Mant wrote a commentary on the whole Bible. Other works by him include the Psalms in an English Metrical Version (1842) and a History of the Church of Ireland (1839-1841; 2 vols.). His Ancient Hymns from the Roman Breviary (1837) was one of the earliest collections of translated Latin hymnody in English. Who was the Rev George D'Oyly and what part did he play in establishing King's? George D'Oyly, 1778-1846, was the Rector of Lambeth and a prime mover in the establishment of King's. His open letter to the Home Secretary, Sir Robert Peel, in February 1828, proposed a new university incorporating religious education. This led to the Freemasons' Hall meeting in June 1828 and the foundation of the College. D'Oyly subsequently played an important role in the Provisional Committee and College Council that oversaw the fundraising, construction and opening of the College for students in 1831.

        Manuscript Treatise on Housekeeping

      England, 1830. Half Calf. Near Fine. 8vo. 23 by 19 cm. 98 numbered leaves, with writing entirely on the rectos. Unfilled leaves follow. Leaves are lined, with a neat, but not always easily legible cursive handwriting constituting the text. & & This pre-Victorian manuscript is a virtual Sun Tzu-like primer on running a household and its help. Directives are set forth, one after the other, with a supreme knowing-ness and confidence. “Never omit speaking to a servant on the first appearance of a fault”, “Guard against favoritism,” or “Insist on your servants attending the services of the Church,” are among the countless examples of this. Yet at the same time, the author is sensitive to balancing competing concerns, and she tersely navigates these dichotomies, as with her pronouncement: “To all mistresses I would say, be vigilant and watchful; but beware of ‘Suspicion’. & & The author does not merely set forth pointers without clarification or substantiation. So when she opines, “A kind word . . . will often effect more radical improvement than the severest rebuke,” she goes on to write, “The feelings of servants are keener than we give them credit for. . . ” & & The intended audience for all the instruction is the young bride of some means. That is why the management of staff is a paramount concern – more of the text is devoted to it than anything else. While the topic would not have been a pressing matter for the majority of young women, many of whom were themselves in service, it was a time that a much wider of swath of society did have domestic staff, including those squarely in the middle class. & & Other sections concentrate on budgeting, food preparation and the kitchen, china and glass, the water-closet, storage, health care, linens, washing. Throughout, the presentation is markedly concise. Even with the many inevitable overlaps among topics, the author manages to keep redundancy to a minimum.& & The work is not simple to categorize, for the points it contains range from broader philosophical approaches to some real nuts and bolts. Always, though, the work stays free of cerebral grandiosity on the one hand or of soporific nitty gritty details on the other. In terms of big picture points, the manuscript is not free of pedestrian, conventional attitudes, but often it surprises with fresh, rather progressive insights. She writes, for example, “The vexation and trouble so often experienced in the management of household domestics, benefits us seriously to inquire if the faults do not originate as much in the system we adopt towards them, as in the servants themselves." And she shows sympathy for the servants’ lot: “Domination is hard to bear, and equally galling to high and low; and if in enacting too severely, the scrupulous fulfilment of their duties, we wound the tender feelings of our menials, we “can not be surprised at their resenting it, in the only way which is open to them.” Another observation containing the wisdom of experience is that one “seldom gains time by hurrying them [servants]”. & & The more specific details pepper the text through and through. So, for instance, in the discussion of the care of guests, the author has what amounts to a checklist of things a maid should attend to, down to seeing that the towel horse is well supplied and that there are two sorts of soap. On in the cooking section, she warns against boiling vegetables with meats because “they mutually spoil each other.”& & As much as the author appears to have been a no nonsense, clear-eyed observer, she was no revolutionary, and so she could be susceptible to the prejudices and myopic viewpoints of the society she lived in. This aspect of the manual is at least as interesting to us as the more perceptive elements. And so, here and there slip in comments that suggest the author perceives servants as child-like, simple-minded and backward, as just one example. & & The primer's cohesive organization suggests the author harbored hopes of publication, although we are not aware that such a wish was granted. One can imagine that a well-meaning, and energetic, mother or aunt might put together her pearls of wisdom into writing just as her sheltered, innocent daughter or niece is about to undergo the trial by ordeal of running a household on her own for the first time, but that is most definitely not the case here, for the advice is simply too general, contingent and impersonal. Clearly, the writer did not have a specific reader in mind. & & Rather, we would suggest the likeliest author was the senior housekeeper of a very substantial household. Such a person would have had an official position, and one that carried real status. Generally, the housekeeper was at the pinnacle of the female staff, and stereotypically, would have been someone who ruled with a firm hand, as one could infer from this document that this author most definitely would have. It is easy to imagine someone in such a capacity having a clear conception of what it takes to run a more modest household, but not the reverse, meaning someone in charge of a small staff really grasping the demands of a grander residence. To have risen in the staff hierarchy, our presumed author would have been someone who had been around a long time and more than likely, witnessed many a workplace dynamic. It is only from such long, broad experience that she could write: “The code of laws which regulates the conduct of servants towards each other is little known or understood by those moving in the classes above them,” and follow up by developing upon that theme. To compose such a document as this required the sort of competence and perseverance certainly not common in a servant class that was still largely semi-literate at best, and few below housekeeper could have managed the undertaking. & & Rebacked, with raised bands and gilt decorative devices.

        Carta Constitucional da Monarchia Portugueza, decretada e dada pelo Rei de Portugal e Algarves D. Pedro, Imperador do Brasil aos 29 de abril de 1826.

      Angra, Na Imprensa do Governo, 1830. - Small typographical vignette on title page. 32 pp. 2 works bound in 1 volume. 8°, late twentieth-century sheep, spine gilt with raised bands in five compartments, gilt lettering in second and fourth compartments, ruled gilt border on covers, machine marbled endleaves, contemporary plain wrappers bound in. A bit of minor soiling to title page. Overall in very good condition, uncut at outer and lower edges. Contemporary ink doodling on wrappers. 2 works bound in 1 volume. ---- Rare edition of the @Carta Constitucional printed in the Açores. The Portuguese @Carta Constitucional, the second Portuguese constitution, was a fundamental constitutional text for nineteenth-century Portugal and one of the starting points of nineteenth-century Portuguese history. It was written and promulagated in Rio de Janeiro in 1826 by D. Pedro I, Emperor of Brazil, in his capacity as D. Pedro IV, King of Portugal. He then abdicated as ruler of Portugal in favor of his daughter, D. Maria II. Sir Charles Stuart, Lord Stuart d'Rothsey, was charged with bringing the 1826 Charter from Brazil to Portugal in the year of its promulgation. Abrogated by D. Miguel in 1828, it was put back into force after the victory of the liberals under D. Pedro in August 1834, remaining the supreme law of the land until September 10, 1836. Closely resembling the 1824 Brazilian constitution, also in large part written by D. Pedro, it was the rallying point of the liberal cause that eventually resulted in the triumph of D. Pedro over his brother, the absolutist D. Miguel, and the ascension to the throne of D. Pedro's daughter as D. Maria II. Finally, under Costa Cabral, it was re-instituted on February 10, 1842, and remained the Portuguese constitution until the fall of the monarchy in 1910. Though liberal in its day, it was more conservative than the first Portuguese constitution of 1822 or the third Portuguese constitution of 1838.---- Canto 404. Not in Innocêncio. Not located in OCLC.

        Strategonon

      Ansbach: Doll, 1830. Rare War Board-Game Book <p>Aretin, Wilhelm, Freiherr von. Strategonon. Versuch die Kriegf¸hrung durch ein Spiel anschaulich darzustellen. . . . 8vo. xxxv, [1], 145, [3]pp. 3 hand-colored folding plates, 1 folding lithographed table, 4 folding letterpress tables. Ansbach: Dollfuss, 1830. 209 x 115 mm. Old marbled boards, slightly rubbed & stained. Old stamps on title, light browning, a little foxing. Very good copy. </p><p>First Edition. Very rare, with only one location in NUC (1983 fiche catalog, showing only the Cleveland Public Library copy). Describes what the author considers the most true-to-life war board-game yet published, which he believes especially appropriate for advanced cadets, who can learn to be good officers from playing it. Baron von Aretin, a lieutenant in the royal Bavarian light cavalry (second regiment, to be precise), belonged to a family distinguished in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries for public service (see NBG). He writes in his introduction that he has based his war game on one devised in 1803 by his uncle Baron Georg von Aretin, which was never published. Von Aretin gives an overview and critique of war board-games from the seventeenth century, especially those of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. These games, derived from the rules and playing board of chess, have in recent times come closer to a true-to-life simulation of war situations, but are on account of lack of verisimilitude, or cumbersomeness of the board, or length of time needed to play, inferior to the game he describes in his book. Von Aretin has factored into his game natural troop movements, considerations of equipment, terrain and time of year, the working of various weapons, supplies, rules, headquarters and commanders, desertion, sieges, destruction of bridges, naval warfare, etc. The three folding hand-colored plates with approx. fifty figures show the game pieces; the five folding tables give data on the march of troops and the working of weapons in different contexts. </p>

Westall, painter, engraver, and lithographer, was always interested in the mechanics of print work. His lithographs of London and the aquatints for Ackermann of the Thames, the universities, and public schools are highly regarded. The steel-engravings for Great Britain Illustrated, first published in parts by Charles Tilt, brought topographical prints to a wide audience. A number of Westall&#39;s Indian views appeared as aquatints in Robert Grindlay&#39;s Scenery, Costumes and Architecture Chiefly on the Western Side of India, and his work appeared in the new print format patented by George Baxter (for example, The Pictorial Album, or, Cabinet of Paintings, for the Year, 1837 - for a full Bio see ODNB)

        ANTIQUITIES OF MEXICO: COMPRISING FAC-SIMILES OF ANCIENT MEXICAN PAINTINGS AND HIEROGLYPHICS.TOGETHER WITH THE MONUMENTS OF NEW SPAIN.THE WHOLE ILLUSTRATED BY MANY VALUABLE INEDITED MANUSCRIPTS BY AUGUSTINE AGLIO.VOL. IV.

      London. . 1830 - [6],[2 blank leaves],[18]pp. plus 146 lithographic plates (some folding). Elephant folio. Modern half blue morocco and cloth, raised bands. Some slight foxing in margins of a few plates. Overall internally very good. This important series of topographical views and illustrations of Mayan artifacts, based on drawings made in 1805-7 by the French captain, Guillermo Dupaix, is the fourth volume of Lord Kingsborough's monumental eleven-volume ANTIQUITIES OF MEXICO. It is by far the most desirable volume of the set, since it is the only one with topographical views of the sites as they appeared at the beginning of the 19th century. The handsome lithographs depict Palenque, Mitla, and other important Mayan ruins. In addition, there are lithographs of ancient Mexican sculptures from specimens in the British Museum. There are also plates depicting the GIRO DEL MUNDO of Gemilli Careri, including an engraving of the Mexican calendar taken from a painting once owned by Boturini. Other volumes of this work are sometimes found with colored plates; however, the plates in the present volume are never found colored (except for a few partially colored plans and the marvelous colored plate of the Mexican calendar taken from Gemilli's work mentioned above). This is the first publication of Dupaix's work, the most extensive series of views of the Mayan ruins to have appeared in print up to that time. His work was republished in a different format in Paris in 1833-34. The Kingsborough publication is the more lavish of the two versions, as well as having priority. A most important series of Meso- American views. SABIN 37800. RICH II:33.

        Collection of family documents from the archives of the Counts Sermage de Szomszedvár, descendants of the Hungarian conspirator Ferenc Nádasdy, including his last will and testament in a ms. copy with autogr. authentication by Empress Maria Theresia.

      Various places, c. 1660-1830. - 6 Imperial documents for members of the Nádasdy and Sermage families (issued by Franz Josef I, Franz I, Maria Theresia, Ferdinand I, and Ferdinand II), 4 portrait miniatures, several photographs and miniature coats-of-arms. Ferenc Nádasdy, a descendant of King Edward I Plantagenet and grandson of Ferenc Nádasdy, the "Black Prince" (1555-1604), who had led many successful campaigns against the Turks but is mainly remembered as husband of the "Blood Countess" Elizabeth Báthory (cf. T. Thorne, Countess Dracula. London 1998), served as Hungarian High Judge of the Crown Court. He was beheaded in Vienna on 30 April 1671 as one of the four principal leaders of the so-called Wesselényi conspiracy. The conspirators had conducted secret talks with France and Turkey for support against Emperor Leopold I; the conflict escalated when they arrested the Hungarian governor Count Rüdiger von Starhemberg. It was Nádasdy's failed attempt to throw off Habsburg rule that brought about Austria's absolutist and repressive regime in Hungary (cf. Encyclopaedia Britannica, s. v. "Wesselény Conspiracy"). Nádasdy's fortune and property were seized by the Crown, but the Emperor is said to have returned most of it to several of his children. Similarly, the change of name originally demanded of the sons was not enacted, as they served in high positions of church and state under their true name (cf. Wurzbach XX, 16). A fine ivory miniature portrait of Ferenc Nádasdy that was passed on within the family until the 19th century bears witness to the uninterrupted veneration of the executed national hero. The portrait is accompanied by an explanatory document by Nádasdy's great-granddaughter to her son, the poet and statesman Karl Johann Peter Graf Sermage von Szomszedvár (1792-1851). The 19-page document in booklet form prepared for Joseph Graf Nádasdy contains the text of several last wills and entailments concerning the family and bears Mariua Theresia's autogr. authentication and seal; it is countersigned by Nikolaus Palffy. The miniature portraits of Nádasdy's descendants by some of the most highly regarded portrait painters of their times, such as Wenzel Schránil (1821-84) and Georg Koberwein (1820-76), bear witness to the eminent position that the family had regained by the 19th century. - Detailed list upon request. Cf. Claudia Ham, Graf Franz III. Nádasdy. Held oder Rebell (Vienna 1991).

        Fleet Street Prison

      1830 - A fine watercolour of a debtor in Fleet Street Prison, by the celebrated English painter Thomas Hosmer Shepherd. Virtually en grisaille , this is an exceptionally carefully drawn watercolour of the grille on Farringdon Street, built into the wall of Fleet Prison so that inmates could beg passersby for coins. Over the grille in the lunette formed by the arch are the words: "Pray Remember Poor Debtors Having No Allowance". A gray haired man stands and calls out to the empty sidewalk. Fleet Prison was run for profit, and the wardens and guards basically lived by extorting the prisoners, who had to pay for room and board. They were subject to all sorts of mistreatment. Fleet Prison was built in 1197, burnt down and re-built several times, finally closed in 1844 and demolished in 1846. Thomas Hosmer Shepherd was one of the most esteemed watercolourists of his day. An industrious painter and draftsman, Shepherd produced a wealth of images illustrating street scenes and old buildings in London. His handsome paintings combine a natural quality attentive to detail, making them some of the most appealing views of the metropolis. Shepherd worked almost exclusively for the eminent publisher Frederick Crace. His illustrations grace the pages of some of the era's most important texts, including "Metropolitan Improvements, or London in the Nineteenth Century", "A Picturesque Tour of the Regents Canal", and "London and its Environs in the Nineteenth Century". Dictionary of National Biography. Watercolour. Signed l.l. "T. Hosmer Shepherd" In excellent condition with bright fresh colour.

      Mexico: Impr. del ciudadano Alejandro Valdés, 1829-1830. - Three volumes. [6],xx,277,xxxi,279-350,[7]; [6],397,xlvi,[9]; [4],339[4]pp. Lacks folding plate in first volume. Small quarto. Later brown half morocco and marbled boards, spines gilt. Rubbed at extremities; boards lightly scuffed. Bookplate on front pastedowns. Bright and clean internally. Very good. Father Sahagún's life as a teacher of boys from high-ranking Nahautl families and as a student of their language and history is well known, and long has been. But the original 16th-century manuscript of his history of pre- Conquest Mexico in Nahuatl lay unpublished in the Laurentian library in Florence, Italy, until the 20th century; and his own translation of it suffered a similar fate until the great 19th-century historian Carlos María de Bustamante found that manuscript in the library of the monastery of San Francisco de Tolosa de Navana, and published this edition. Father Sahagún's native students and their families clearly "opened up," as we would now say, to him and his project of recording the facts and lore of their clearly then- vanishing culture in their own language; and his text brims with firsthand information gleaned from them on astronomy, astrology, myths, social structure, language, history, gemology, warfare, and literature, to single out a few fields of study. Bustamante added explanatory notes and amplifying texts from collateral sources such as Alvaro de Tezozomoc, Sigüenza y Góngora, and his own writings. PALAU 284994. FIELD 1438. SABIN 74950. H.
