        Autograph Manuscript, signed ("John Barrow"), entitled "Memorandum for the Committee of the Athenaeum"

      London, january 9, 1830. 4to. 4 pp., in ink, on a single folded sheet. Faint trace of previous mounting at fold, small split at bottom . In this lengthy memorandum from 1830, Sir John Barrow (1764 - 1848), the English statesman and travel writer, addresses the admissions committee of London's prestigious Athenaeum Club, founded only a few years before in 1824, with a practical suggestion for solving the problem of the decline in the Club's standard for admission. "A very general opinion seems to prevail, that the character of the Athenaeum Club has, for the last few years, declined in public estimation by the admission of persons whom the original founders of the Club would never have contemplated as qualified to become members; and it cannot be doubted that this failure of admitting unfit persons is wholly owing to the present mode of ballot. Previous plans have been suggested to remedy this deficit, but all of them have been objected to, and not without good and sufficient grounds. The present proposal will probably therefore share the same fate; yet I am greatly mistaken if the adoption of it would not immediately strike at the root of the evil. The remedy is simple ..."

        Le Courier De La Malle./La Diligence. [A Pair]

      Vilquin, Palais Royal, No. 20, Paris 1830 - A stunning pair of aquatints by Jazet after the celebrated French landscape painter Etienne Bouhot. This beautiful pair of aquatints by Jazet, after paintings by Etienne Bouhot, are a wonderful example of Bouhot's unique style. A Burgundian artist, Bouhot made a reputation for himself as a talented architectural landscape painter. He exhibited regularly at the Salon and produced many fine paintings of the countryside surrounding Paris. The Industrial Revolution did not take hold in France until the 1830's when slowly factories began to appear across the countryside and the railways made their way into smaller towns across France. The modernization of the countryside had a great impact on French landscape painters but it was not until the work of the Impressionists, at the close of the century, that the symbols of Industrialization began to appear in images of rural France. For many years artists tended to ignore the factories and railways that littered the countryside, opting to paint an idealize vision of the country as a bucolic paradise. Although not as obvious as the Impressionists, Bouhot was one of the few artists to hint at the encroaching clouds of modern industry. His moody paintings capture a pivotal time in French history when the countryside was slowly transformed by modern industry. This remarkable pair of aquatints are a superb example of Bouhot's complex paintings. Instead of depicting an idealized vision of the countryside, Bouhot has chosen to show the effect of modernization on rural life. Jean Pierre Marie Jazet was one of the most prominent aquatint engravers of the Napoleonic era. He worked almost exclusively in aquatint, reproducing the paintings of the grand Republican artists such as David, Vernet, de Gros, and Grenier. Although the majority of his prints were patriotic images, he also produced many fine aquatints of pastoral paintings and genre scenes. His fresh images exhibit he beauty of the medium and exemplify his amazing technical ability. His extremely complex prints are fluid yet detailed; they express the beautiful painterly technique of the medium while exhibiting the precision of the reproductive arts. This pair is a veritable tour de force and a superb example of Jazet's talents as an engraver. Grand Larousse du XIXe's. Colour printed aquatints. Printed on wove paper. "Le Courier De La Malle": in excellent condition with the exception of being trimmed within the platemark on all sides. A number of small tears along the edges of the sheet. A small area on the bottom margin has been infilled. Image size: 13 ½ x 21 ½ inches. Sheet size: 16 5/8 x 23 7/8 inches.

Laurenchet), (2) f., 294 p., (2) f. de table et d'errata. Edition originale. Economiste et journaliste républicain genevois radical, James Fazy résida en France et se rangea, après la révolution de 1830, dans l'opposition au nouveau régime. Poursuivi, il dut rejoindre Genève. Principal organisateur de l'insurrection du 7 octobre 1846, il rédigea la Constitution de 1848 et occupa des fonctions politiques de premier plan. Il est à bien des égards l'un des fondateurs de la Genève moderne, tant du point de vue politique et économique (il créa la Banque de Genève) que de l'urbanisme ou du réseau de transport. Son œuvre économique présente des aspects originaux. Fazy développe une théorie industrialiste fondée sur la réorganisation globale, "associative" et "délibérative", de la société et de ses institutions afin de favoriser un développement continu et infini de la production industrielle.

        Broadside on cloth: Mary's Lamb in Sunday Lessons, No. 1

      Boston: Boston Chemical Printing Company. [circa1830-32]. First. First edition. Printed on cotton cloth hemmed on four sides. Approximately 12" x 11.5". Several modest and scattered rust stains, but no fraying or other wear, a very good or better example. Printed in three columns divided by lines of type ornaments within an overall border of type ornaments. Cuts at head of each column are of boys in Sunday School; a boy playing with a lamb; and a woman reading to young girls. Five other hymns or prayers surrounding the central poem: Mary's Lamb by Mrs. Hale. Better known now by the first line, "Mary Had a Little Lamb," Hale's poem was first published in the magazine The Juvenile Miscellany. (Boston: Putnam and Hunt, September, 1830) and in book form in Poems for Our Children, also in 1830. A revised version was published by Hale in The School Song Book. (Boston: Allen & Ticknor, 1834). Our version seems to be identical in text to the original version, so our presumption is that this precedes the 1834 The School Song Book. According to OCLC six examples (of four separate titles, not including this one) of broadsides on cloth by this publisher/manufacturer exist in American libraries, one apparently dated 1830, the others attributed to that decade. Thomas Edison made this poem the first words ever recorded when he spoke them into his new invention, the phonograph, in 1877. Rare. .

        Plate 107 Un Tal Lume Perpetuo Antico.

      Paris 1830 - John Wilton-Ely plate 1002The watermark that is present is number 93 in John Wilton-Ely on page 1182 and is dated in the 1830s.Giovanni Battista Piranesi was one of the leading figures in the development of the neoclassical style in the late 18th Century. As architect, archaeologist, artist, designer, collector, and antiquities dealer, he produced a series of etchings and engravings depicting the glories of ancient Rome. These fine prints served as source material for other architects and designers. He was born in Venice on the 4th October 1720. The son of a stone-mason, he was educated as an architect under his maternal uncle Matto Lucchesi and under Carlo Zucchi. In 1740 Piranesi left Venice for Rome, there he studied etching under Giuseppe Vasi. He appears to have had little success in these early years in Rome and as his father was unable to continue his allowance returned to Venice in 1744. He was soon, however, encouraged to return to Rome by Giuseppe Wagner, a successful engraver and publisher of Venice. This time he achieved success, and a constant series of works, illustrating architecture and antiquities, issued from his studio until his death in 1778. His output in etched plates is enormous (about 1000 numbers in all). While he achieved a work of magnitude in pictorial records of Roman monuments of antiquity and of the Renaissance, and gave immense archæological, antiquarian, and topographical value to this work, the artistic quality always predominates. He was fond of peopling his ruins with Callot-like figures, and "like Callot makes great use of the swelling line" (Hind). He had two sons and a daughter, all of whom helped him in his work and after his death carried on his publications in Rome and Paris. They were Francesco (born 1748 or 1756; died 1810), Pietro (who lived till after 1807) and Laura (born 1750). His position in Rome and in Europe after 1760 was a prominent one. He was well-known figure to the wealthy English visitors in Rome and was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1757. Most of his life was passed in Rome, etching, writing, publishing, and directing a workshop in which the restoration and sale of antiques played a considerable part.He was famous for his poetic views of Rome and also his fantastic imaginary interiors. His skills, allied to his deep knowledge of archaeology, provided the substance for his Vedute (Views), a series of 135 etchings of ancient and contemporary Rome, published from 1745 onwards, which established the popular mental image of the city. Ornamenti Antichi was a collection of 110 etchings documenting large sculptural vases, together with other antiquities excavated (and in some cases created) in Italy in the 18th century. The prints were initially separately issued and sold by Piranesi over a period of several years and subsequently collected in two folio volumes, each with its own title page, in 1778. They illustrate a wide range of genuine antiquities, as well as Piranesi's own collections, from utilitarian objects such as cinerary urns, lamps, and sarcophagi to monumental vases. The plates in Vasi often included text by Piranesi with information about where the objects were discovered and their contemporary location, and the prints bore dedications to his patrons, colleagues, visitors and influential people. He believed absolutely in the supremacy of Roman over Greek architecture, an argument he expounded most forcefully in his Della magnificenza ed architettura dei Romani (On the Magnificence of Roman Architecture, 1761). his romanticized views and imaginary interiors had a profound effect on stage designers, painters of capricci such as Hubert Robert, and even writers: William Beckford, the author of the Gothic novel and Vathek . In the 20th century his imaginary interiors have been admired by the Surrealists . Reference: John Wilton-Ely. Giovanni Battista Piranesi: The Complete Etchings.

        Italy A Poem

      for T. Cadell, Jennings and Chaplin and E. Moxon, London 1830 - This is a stunning book with minimal flaws. There some foxing on the title page and preface, some rare foxing internally and some very light soil on the slip case. Otherwise this exquisite book is clean, tight, square with sharp corners and unmarked in an equally fine cloth covered, felt lined slip case. The end papers are covered in light orange silk. The gilt decorated, brown leather of the binding continues over the boards to frame the cloth covered paste downs. The brown leather is inlaid with marvelous gilt designs with small flowers. The motif continues on the spine where there are five raised bands. The 284, bright, clear pages (gilt edged at the top) are extensively illustrated in black and white and as the author says in the preface "With respect to the embellishments of this volume they require no praise of his. The two artists, who have contributed so much to give it value, would have done honor to any age or country." We have called it a first edition although the author in preface notes "Much of it was published as it was written on the spot. He has since revised it throughout, and added many stories from the old Chroniclers and many notes Illustrative of the manners, customs and superstitions. This referencing the 48 pages of notes at the rear. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        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.
