        Album de la jeunesse...

      Paris: Gide Fils, circa, 1830. Oblong quarto, with 60 engravings; but a beautiful copy in original boards, ex libris Paul Gavault. A very rare and beautiful French children's book, with wonderful Australian plates including six based closely on Clark's Foreign Field Sports. This work is not recorded by Ferguson, nor by Muir, and this copy belonged at one time to Paul Gavault, editor of the Gumuchian catalogue of children's books, and has his bookplate.Legrand's Album was a very fine production, and a relatively early one for books of this type; the chapters on natural history, whaling (with four plates), botany, ethnography, geography, and minerals, are profusely illustrated with 60 full-page engravings, including a double-hemisphere world map with geological features in the lower margin, and an astronomical chart with a pretty volvelle showing the earth orbiting the sun. Roughly a third of the plates, including six Australian scenes of Aborigines hunting and fishing, are drawn from J.H. Clark's Foreign Field Sports, originally published in London several years earlier, and it is evident that Clark's original descriptions were also used in translation in the accompanying letterpress. Some foxing., professionally restored at the hinges.

        Designs for Ornamental Villas.

      London: James Carpenter, 1830. Quarto, lithograph title and 96 lithograph plates; possibly lacking additional letterpress title (?), in modern quarter calf. Third edition of this classic architectural pattern book. Robinson (1776-1858) was a prolific and versatile designer of country mansions and picturesque cottages. In the present work he provides sixteen designs, some of which were executed, for twelve residences, two lodges, a garden house, and stables. "The range of styles represented perhaps was the most eclectic in British architectural literature to date" (Archer): Swiss, Grecian, Palladian, Old English, Castellated, Ancient Manor House, Modern Italian, Anglo-Norman, Henry VII, Elizabethan, Ancient Timber, and Tuscan. Each design is illustrated in plan, elevation, and 'Scenic View'. Most of the scenic views were drawn on stone by J.D. Harding and printed on India paper.Of course Robinson's promotion of the cottage orné proved influential in Australia, where it became a popular architectural style with colonial architects (see Broadbent, The Australian Colonial House, p. 354). Lithograph title foxed and minor foxing to some early plates, but otherwise a very attractive copy.

      Thann: Imprimerie-Lithographe Gresset vers 1830 - große Original-Lithographie von Gresset (im Stein signiert) nach einem Gemälde von Matter auf rückseitig unbedrucktem schweren Büttenblatt, bildliche Darstellung ca. 32 x 58,5 cm, Blattgröße ca. 43 x 63 cm, im breiten Blattrand außerhalb der bildlichen Darstellung einige wenige alt hinterklebte Einrissse und etwas Alterspatina, ansonsten sauber und bemerkenswert gut erhalten, sehr selten und für uns anderenorts weder antiquarisch noch in Museen oder Bibliotheken nachweisbar - This most famous old view of the city of "Thann in the year 1600" is already known from a reproduction on French postcards of the 1920s, but the artist and the printer have remained unknown so far. Since we discovered the original a few years ago, we know that this impressive view of Thann is a large lithography painted by F.J. Gresset, a brilliant lithographer and printmaker with his office in Thann itself, painted on stone after a drawing of an unknown artist named "Matter". 2100 gr.

        ALS to Joseph Davies, from 49 Bedford Square, 8 Feb., 1830. 'I regret that you should imagine the absence of my reply to arise from a want of interest in the subject of your letter...'

      1830 48 lines in a difficult hand, on 3 sides of folded 4to sheet with integral address leaf; sl. loss caused by seal, old folds, edge mounted onto larger 4to sheet.A long and engaging letter from Robert Owen to a fellow educationalist, Joseph Davies of Liverpool. Owen, 1771-1858, a successful mill owner, had spent his life trying to encourage social, educational and political reform for working communities, culminating in the utopian social experiments at New Lanark in Scotland and New Harmony in America. In 1830, after his involvement in both communities had ended, Owen continued to campaign for the education and improvement of working people. This correspondence with Davies, of whom little is known, is in response to a letter from Davies evidently setting out his philosophy on education. '[Your letter] I perused with such attention for your ideas for the education of infants accord in all respects with my own.' Owen, although clearly impressed with Davies' philosophy, refuses to back him financially: 'It is not in my power to assist you in money matters for alas my powers are involved in this measure which I have put in practice to relieve the population form the distress which overwhelms it & I won't prepare you to expect some difficulty in affecting satisfactory pecuniary arrangements. I have always found many obstacles opposed when money was to be abused for a future object'. He signs off with a warm flourish wishing the recipient well with the success of their shared objectives: 'Time will not permit me to send more than my sincere wishes that you may attain the future accomplishments of your object which is so necessary to the formation of a superior character of the human race'.

        On The Construction of Fire-Engines and Apparatus, the training of firemen, and the method of proceeding in cases of fire. FIRST EDITION.

      Edinburgh: sold by Bell & Bradfute, and Oliver & Boyd, &c. 1830 double front. tipped in on stub, folding plates. Uncut in recent half brown calf by Philip Dusell, gilt spine. Signed 'M. Braidwood 1.2.22. on recto of front. Additional inscription on title: 'City Road 14.12.69' with signature of J. Grant, in similar hand on (p.1). A handsome copy.Not in BL; Oxford & NLS only on Copac. James Braidwood, 1800-1861, founded the world's first municipal fire service in Edinburgh in 1824 and this text represents the earliest comprehensive guide to the construction of equipment and the training of officers within the increasingly organised fire services of 19th century urban Britain. His success in Edinburgh, which was built on personal acts of bravery and his ability to train his officers in modern methods of fighting fires, brought Braidwood to the attention of London fire fighters. In 1832 he was appointed the first Superintendent of the London Fire-Engine Establishment, an organisation which was to become the London Fire Brigade in 1865. Braidwood died in 1861 fighting a fire at London Bridge which burnt for two weeks causing £2,000,000 of damage.

        Captain Sir Christopher Cole, R.N. K.C.B. Colonel of Marines, &c. &c. &c.

      London: n.d. but circa, 1830. Mezzotint, 522 x 404 mm., noted in the plate as "proof" at bottom left, small cut at the bottom and a tear in the right-hand side of the image repaired, but an excellent portrait. A fine mezzotint portrait of Sir Christopher Cole, an important naval officer and patron to King's long-serving companion of the Mermaid and Bathurst voyages, John Septimus Roe. A feint inscription at the lower left of the image notes that this is a proof copy.Sir Christopher Cole (1770-1837), Post Captain and Colonel of Marine, served as Flag Captain to Lord Hugh Seymour and to Sir J.T. Duckworth, relieved the garrison to Amboyne in 1810 and captured Banda Neira. He retired from the sea to represent Glamorganshire, and was made commander of the yacht Royal Sovereign in 1828.Cole had tremendous influence on the career of the great Australian cartographer and naval officer John Septimus Roe. Roe's first appointment was as the "schoolmaster" under Cole on board the Rippon, a vessel which saw service against the French. It was Cole who noticed Roe's skill at charts and drawing, and soon had the young midshipman not only making detailed charts for the navy, but also drawing sketches to be forwarded to Cole's "sweetheart", one Miss Talbot. Cole, together with Roe's other influential patron Sir Richard Keats, did keep an eye out for Roe, and the two men were involved in organising first his appointment to the Admiralty under Captain Thomas Hurd, and soon after, his appointment to the Mermaid with Phillip Parker King. One of the first times that Roe was allowed to name something he had charted while sailing on the Australian coast he plumped for "Cole's Island".The original painting of Cole was by William Owen R.A., and is here engraved by George H. Phillips. Owen had a prestigious career as a portraitist, and boasted a list of distinguished sitters. He was elected to the Royal Academy in 1806.

        Variations Brillantes pour le Piano Forte sur la Cavatine favorite Aurora sorgerai nella Donna del Lago del Maestro Rossini, Dediées à Madame la Comtesse de la Roche-Agnon [?] et composées par Henri Herz. Oeuv. 17.

      Paris, Au Magasin de Musique de Pacini, n.d. (late 1820s-1830s?). - 5 works bound together. Folio (33.8 x 26 cm.), contemporary (Brazilian?) green sheep, smooth spine gilt (defective at head and foot, a bit faded), covers with Greek key design gilt within ruled gilt border, Imperial arms of Brazil at center with gilt initials "P.I.D.J.", additional gilt-tooled vignette below the arms on the front cover (significant scraping and some other wear, mostly to extremities), edges of covers milled (but much faded), green endleaves, all text block edges gilt. Engraved title page. Engraved musical notation throughout. On thick paper of excellent quality. Minor dampstaining at outer margin of first 4 leaves. Overall in good to very good condition. (1 l.), 17, (1) pp. *** Another edition of this piece was published in Vienna by Diabelli, also without date; the Österreichischen Nationalbibliothek record for it gives the year [1828]. Rossini's La Donna del Lago premiered in 1819.Henri Herz (1803-1888) was one of the most popular pianists, composers and teachers in Europe during the mid-nineteenth century, when he capitalized on the public's new passion for pianos. He performed in Europe, Russia, South America, and in the United States. From 1842 to 1874 he taught piano at the Paris Conservatoire, where he had studied himself back in 1816. Herz established a piano factory in Paris in 1830, and won first prize for his entry to the Paris Exposition of 1855. Herz and contemporaries such as Johann Hummel and Carl Czerny were criticized by Robert Schumann for shallow virtuosity. Herz, a Jew, was born in Vienna, where he studied music with his father and the organist Daniel Hünten. On one of the title pages in this volume, he describes himself as "Pianiste de S.M. le Roi de France."Provenance: "P.I.D.J." stands for "Princesa Imperial Dona Januária", the second daughter of D. Pedro I, Emperor of Brazil and King of Portugal as D. Pedro IV, and his first wife Maria Leopoldina, Archduchess of Austria, Empress consort of Brazil, and Queen consort of Portugal (1797-1826), daughter of the last Holy Roman Emperor Franz II (later Franz I of Austria). Dona Januária was born in Rio de Janeiro, in the Palácio de São Cristóvão, Quinta da Boa Vista, 1822. From 1835 until 1845, she held the title Princess Imperial of Brazil, as the heir presumptive of her brother the Emperor D. Pedro II. Her marriage to Prince Luigi of the Two Sicilies, Count of Aquila (brother of D. Pedro II's new wife, Empress Teresa Cristina) was celebrated on 28 April 1844 in Rio de Janeiro. Her husband was a son of King Francesco I of the Two Sicilies and his second wife the Infanta Maria Isabella of Spain. Friction developed between the Count of Aquila and D. Januária's brother, the Emperor D. Pedro II. D. Januária and Aquila were eventually permitted to leave Brazil in October 1844. In 1845, D. Januária's position as heir presumptive, and the restrictions it entailed, was lost with the birth of D. Pedro II's first child, D. Afonso, Prince Imperial of Brazil. The city of Januária in Minas Gerais was named in her honor. She died in Nice in 1901.*** Not located in Copac.

        1. Nave pel trasporto de' Deportati. 2. Approdo nel porto di Sydney de Deportati.

      Italy: n.d., circa, 1830. Two lithographic plates, 105 x 130 mm. each, on a single sheet; disbound. A rare and unusual piece of transportation history, showing a delightful and rather fanciful depiction of two scenes from the voyages to Sydney.In both scenes there is a distinct sense of classical genre painting, and in both the vessels depicted look closer to Mediterranean brigantines than true convict ships. The first image shows the embarking of the convicts, presumably in England - although one could easily be confused by their casual Mediterranean attire. The second shows the arrival and disembarking of the transport, with the convicts still looking improbably comfortable. It is particularly intriguing that of the six people gathered at the foot of the gangplank, two appear to be naked Aborigines.As with the copy in the National Library of Australia, this print has been disbound. Very good.

      8vo., original presentation binding of full red calf, boards with wide gilt border of trailing foliate tendrils, with blind stamp central panel, lettered and decorated in gilt on spine, marbled paper endpapers. Pp. [xii]26. Head and tails of spine chipped, a little rubbing to corners and joints otherwise a very good copy. A rare printing of an Edinburgh University dissertation on cholera by David Colville Carruthers, who later was to become Ordinary Physician to the Dundee Cholera Hospital. This presentation copy inscribed opposite p.1 "To James (?) Miller Esq with the best wishes of his friend the author." Printed dedications are to the author's uncle Alexander Ramsay, doctor at the lunatic asylum in Dundee and Carruther's teacher, William Colville, a soldier in Calcutta, his uncle Thomas Colville, serving as well in Calcutta, and James Ogilvy, an Edinburgh surgeon - all dedications printed on separate leaves. The thesis itself opens with a digest of authoritative passages from Hippocrates to Cullen, Sydenham, Bateman and recent medical experience gained by British practitioners in India, Sir James Annesley in particular, who served for more than the first third of the 19th century as a surgeon in India. In comparing outbreaks of cholera in Europe and India Carruthers, assistant surgeon to the army in Bengal, laconically states that in the West the prognosis is frequently positive, whereas on the Subcontinent 'prognosis infelix est'. - This is a rare case of an epidemiological study comparing the course of a disease in two continents. Historical background for this medical dissertation is the so-called First Cholera Pandemic, which began in 1816 in Bengal and spread across India and beyond (as far West as the Caspian Sea), before receding 1826. Hundreds of thousands of Indians and ten thousand British troops died during this pandemic. London was to be hit by a second outbreak in 1832. Copac only lists Edinburgh University, OCLC adds University of Wisconsin and Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin.

      The first edition, "very rare and extremely sought-after" (Clouzot).

While all the critics at the time praised the exceptional qualities of the novel, even the most laudatory were shocked by its lively critique of society and of the Jacobinism of Julien Sorel.A superb copy of the first edition, complete with publisher's advertisement leaf, of this great classic of French literature.

        Raccolta di Costumi Antichi disegnati da Bartolomeo Pinelli incise ad acquaforte da A. M.,

      Presso Giovanni Zecchi in Via Porta Nova,, Bologna, 1830 - In 4° (226×150 mm); 1 frontespizio inciso, 1 antiporta (assente nella maggior parte degli esemplari ma qui presente) e 100 tavole numerate raffiguranti i costumi delle civiltà antiche. Completo. Brossura coeva con qualche piccola mancanza al dorso e qualche strappetto ai margini esterni. All’interno bell’esemplare in barbe, ad ampi margini e con le incisioni in fresca e nitida tiratura. Una carta quasi staccata e qualche lieve, sporadica ed ininfluente macchiolina ma nel complesso, all’interno, esemplare in buone-ottime condizioni di conservazione. Edizione censita in ICCU, due soli esemplari), ma sconosciuta ai principali repertori consultati, che annoverano un’edizione dello stesso anno con titolo leggermente differente e 75 carte di testo di spiegazione delle tavole ma con titolo differente. Molto raro. Prima edizione di questa raccolta di costumi del grande incisore, pittore e ceramista romano, Bartolomeo Pinelli (Roma, 20 novembre 1781 – Roma, 1º aprile 1835). Nacque a Roma il 20 novembre 1781, da Giovanni Battista e Francesca Gianfarani, in un edificio del rione di Trastevere oggi non più esistente, ma in corrispondenza del quale si trovano una lapide ed un busto bronzeo in suo onore. Suo padre era un modellatore di statue devozionali, e lo avviò all’arte della manipolazione della ceramica. Tuttavia le sue capacità nel campo della figurazione si sarebbero esplicate soprattutto attraverso le tecniche dell’incisione, del disegno e della pittura. Si formò prima all’Accademia di Belle Arti di Bologna, città dove la famiglia si era trasferita nel 1792, e poi all’Accademia di San Luca a Roma, dove era tornato nel 1799. Nello stesso 1799 cominciò la collaborazione con Franz Kaisermann, per il quale dipinse le figure delle sue vedute all’acquerello. Nel frattempo diede inizio ai suoi studi, sbocciati poi (1807) nell’Album di trentasei acquerelli di Scene e Costumi di Roma e del Lazio. Quanto al suo aspetto fisico e alle sue abitudini comportamentali, così scrisse di lui un contemporaneo: " Fu Bartolomeo Pinelli di media statura, di fisonomia e di portamento vivaci; portò folta la capigliatura che a lunghi boccoli gli incorniciava il viso e gli scendeva inanellata dinanzi [ ]; i tratti del viso ebbe marcati, ma regolari, e non portò che i piccoli mustacchi come appare anche nel suo busto che fu posto al Pincio. Di costumi fu bizzarro, amante anche troppo dello scherzo. Vestì negligentemente a modo del popolo e lo si vide sempre girare per Roma accompagnato da due grandi mastini e munito di mazza che aveva per pomo una figura di bronzo. Era facile all’ira quantunque fosse di consueto allegro e faceto; fu scettico [leggi: ateo] come molti degli uomini di ingegno del suo tempo e fu patriota a suo modo, cioè innamorato di Roma antica, nella quale concentrò tutti i suoi affetti " (David Silvagni, La corte e la società romana nei secoli XVII e XIX, Roma, Forzani & C. Tipografi del Senato, 1881-4, voll. 3, vol. III, p. 395). Del 1809 è la sua prima serie di incisioni dal titolo Raccolta di cinquanta costumi pittoreschi incisi all’acquaforte. Fu probabilmente nello stesso anno che contrasse ilmatrimonio con Mariangela Gatti, avvenuto con rito repubblicano e dal quale nacquero una figlia femmina, forse morta in giovane età e di cui non si conoscono nemmeno gli estremi anagrafici, e un maschio, Achille. Nel 1816 realizzò le illustrazioni per la Storia Romana e nel 1821 quelle per la Storia Greca. Tra il 1822 e il 1823 realizzò le cinquantadue tavole per il Meo Patacca. Il 25 agosto 1834, per la sua indifferenza al precetto pasquale, ricevette con disprezzo l’interdetto. Morì povero il 1º aprile del 1835, lasciando incompleta l’illustrazione del Maggio romanesco di Giovanni Camillo Peresio. Oltre al repertorio di immagini dedicate ai costumi romani ha illustrato numerosi libri, realizzando cicli ispirati a Iliade, Odissea, Eneide e alla mitologia greco-romana. Opere che maggiormente rivelano l’impronta del neoclassicismo. Per altre edizioni

      1830 - 19th century Book Box w/ hidden compartment Books were all published/ bound 1730-1830's. Box was likely made Europe, perhaps France, first half of 19th century, perhaps c.1830-50. Beautiful looking antique set of books, cleverly disguising an alcohol decanter with 4 small glasses. Object shows relatively light and entirely acceptable signs of usage and age, but as the pictures show, still a very handsome looking item. Four old French language leather bindings, spines gilt ruled, decorated & lettered, compartment devices, top cover with a fantastic Cathedral style leather binding, intricately stamped in blind and gilt. Glasses appear to fit perfectly and we believe are original to the item. One of the primary virtues of this object is that it's unique. A one of a kind item, it casts off a visual aura utterly unlike anything made today. If you put this item into a an historic mansion or fine \house, it will look like it's been sitting there for a long time. In entirely acceptable antique condition. Not perfect, please review the pictures carefully as they capture the essence of how the item survives. Overall mostly light general age wear, bindings scuffed as typical along extremities and at tips, leather a bit rubbed and worn from handling- but the thing is, still entirely attractive as a set. The leather remains mostly supple and still sound, top lid firmly and solidly still attached. Measures c. 5" tall when laying stacked as intended x 7" long x 4 1/2" deep [A6648] A picture is worth a thousand words. Please examine pictures closely, as what you see pictured is what we will send you. [note: we grade conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws.] [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Album with Many Exceptional Watercolors and Pencil Drawings of Birds, Flowers and Human Subjects

      Full Calf. Very Good. An unusually high level of watercolor and pencil sketch work, even by the comparatively high standards of the early 19th century when such skills were widely nurtured among the more comfortable strata of society. The watercolors in particular have a richness and nuance in coloring that jumps off the page, and they bring to mind the color plates one finds in the better botanical books of the period, while the pencil work is highly precise. N.d, circa 1830. 4to. 27 by 21.5 cm. Unpatinated, with content on 82 pages, mostly on the rectos, sometimes on versos. 38 watercolors, 17 pencil drawings. 21 of the watercolors are botanicals, 9 are of birds, 5 of butterflies, and the three remaining include a dog study and an imaginary map. The pencil drawings are mostly human studies, with a few views and animal studies. The majority of watercolors take up the entire page, although some accompany poetry or text. Most of the pencil drawings likewise dominate the page. Hinge broken. Rubbing along joints, and typical moderate wear to the blindstamped leather.

Contemporary green half morocco, marbled sides ruled in gilt, gilt-tooled flat bands to spine forming compartments, titles direct to second gilt, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Armorial bookplate of Scottish collector John Waldie of Hendersyde (1781-1862) with his hand-numbered shelfmark label to front pastedown. Joints and board-edges skilfully restored, morocco sunned to tan in places, front free endpaper creased, pale tide-mark to gutter of a few early leaves, light spotting to half-title and folding map and to margins of a small number of plates, only encroaching on a few of the unmounted images, hinges of double-page plates sometime reinforced. An excellent copy, internally bright and fresh, with rich impressions of the plates. Engraved calligraphic title-page with lithographic vignette mounted on india paper, 45 engravings to the text, and 69 plates comprising 101 discrete images: 44 single lithographs, mounted, of which the El Oueber plate hand-coloured; 10 plates with 2 lithographs to single mounted sheet, 3 plates of 2 lithographs, one mounted and other direct to the plate; 3 plates with multiple lithographs, 3 double-page lithographic plates, 4 engraved plates containing multiple images including map with Laborde's route in colour, and large folding engraved map to rear. First edition. In 1826 the seventeen-year-old de Laborde (1809–1869) travelled with his father across Asia Minor and Syria to Cairo, where he met the engineer Louis Linant de Bellefonds (1799–1883), then in the service of Muhammad 'Ali Pasha. The two Frenchmen decided to set up an expedition to the site of Petra with a view to making drawings of the monuments there, and travelled by way of Suez and Mount Sinai in local dress. Burckhardt (1812) and the team of Irby and Mangles (1817-17) had already visited the ancient Nabataean capital, but Laborde was the first traveller to spend enough time in the area in order to record his observations in the form of plans, views and maps, which remained the only visual representations of Petra available to Western scholars until Roberts's Holy Land (1842-5).

Ink writing on map of Europe, light browning on Ohio/Indiana (seen here as the West), spots on Asia and one small dot on map of North America. Chart has four engravings of NY, Constantinople, Morocco and an Indian village(?)Tan front cover has sizeable piece of paper removed eliminating text on lower portion, some wear and light foxing, margins a little dirty with occasional smudges but o/w VG copy. Name of Goodhue (J. H.) on upper part of front paper cover. He was important surveyor and mapmaker for New York, RI, CT, Pa in mid 19th c. Olney's Geography has the distinction of having caused a complete revolution in the methods of teaching geography. Olney was a practical instructor, and was dissatisfied with the existing textbooks and treatises, which began with an exposition of the science of astronomy, and, making the centre of the solar system the initial point, developed the scheme until it finally included the earth. Olney reversed this method. He began with the scholar's own continent - in fact, in the very city, town, or village in which he or she lived, and made clear by lucid definitions the natural divisions of land and water, illustrating each instance by the use of maps. His plan was to familiarize the child with the surface of the earth by going from the near to the distant, and from the concrete to the abstract, and this system at once overthrew theoretic geography, and initiated the modern practical and descriptive science.

        Deck officer's navigational cyphering book

      1830. Unbound. Very good. This manuscript lesson book contains 45 pages of navigational problems, one hand-drawn map ("A Chart from England to the Cape de Verde Islands"), and two illustrations (one of a sailing vessel and one of a Hadley Quadrant). The book was created by Silas Elden of Buxton, Maine in 1812, probably while training to be a deck officer or perhaps serving as a third mate on a commercial vessel. The pages are in nice shape and soundly bound together, however they have separated from their heavy paper cover. The cover is worn with considerable name-doodling by Silas. The pages are in nice shape and soundly bound together, however they have separated from their heavy paper cover. The cover is worn with considerable name-doodling by Silas. Silas has added what are, presumably, his brothers' names to the rear cover. The lessons cover general navigation, Middle Lattitude (sic) Sailing, Mercator Sailing, Navigation by Projection, by Construction, by Inspection, by Calculation, by Gunter, by Travis Sailing, the use of the Hadley Quadrant, and finally "A New Method of finding the Latt. at Sea.". Silas was born into a Saco River farming family whose home and lands were near Salmon Falls. Census records through 1850 show his occupation as "Sailor," however subsequent records indicate that he returned home to stay after inheriting the family farm following his father's death. The Elden family home still exists and has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Apparently a fairly scarce genre of lesson book for as of 2017, no similar books are in the trade, none are listed at OCLC, and there are no auction records at ABPC or the Rare Book Hub.
