Small brownstain at one corner. Overall in good to very good condition. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION. Fascinating account of a legal dispute between Isidora Meri y Briceño, a woman over 80 years old who was lured to Santiago from her home in Tollo (in the cordillera) and persuaded to sign a document that gave her worldly goods to a much younger woman, Maria del Carmen Quintano. Meri later revoked the donation. The lawyer reviewing the case argues that Quintano unscrupulously manipulated Meri and that although Meri had filed for a divorce from her husband, Dionisio Bravo, the divorce had not been finalized so Meri could not donate her property without the husband's consent. The lawyer also argues that women should never be allowed to make legal decisions such as this donation, due to their "inesperiencia, debilidad, falta de instruccion en sus derechos."---- Briseño I, 106 (without mention of the title page).

With twelve facsimiles of Dumont's handwriting to the rear. As,sadly,three different men held the post of Viscount Exmouth during the year 1833,there is no guarantee which Lady Exmouth this work was owned by. Pierre Etienne Louis Dumont, 1759 1829, was a French political writer. In 1788 Dumont visited Paris with Sir Samuel Romilly. During a stay of two months in that city he had almost daily intercourse with Mirabeau, and a certain affinity of talents and pursuits led to an intimacy between two persons diametrically opposed to each other in habits and in character. Dumont later renewed his friendship with Mirabeau, which culminated in the posthumous publication of his Souvenirs sur Mirabeau in 1832. Condition: In a half calf binding, with marbled boards. Externally, singed to the top of the spine leather, with slight loss. The joints are just starting. Internally, firmly bound, with the occasional mark or spot.

        Der Burgberg in Meißen, von Westen gesehen

      . Bleistift und leichte Aquarellierung in Braun auf Papier, unten rechts signiert: "E. Pape f", 21,3 x 27,2 cm. Eduard Papes Ansicht des Meißner Burgberges zeigt diesen von Westen. Der Standort des Zeichners ist noch heute nachzuvollziehen. Er muss sich etwas unterhalb des Lommatzscher Tores aufgehalten haben und von dort auf die Albrechtsburg und den Dom geblickt haben. Gottfried Pulian hat denselben Blick auf einem Gemälde, das 1832 von Christian Friedrich Gille für die Bilder-Chronik des Sächsischen Kunstvereins gestochen wurde, festgehalten. Allerdings hat er nicht wie Pape den Burgberg in das Zentrum seiner Komposition gerückt, sondern die Überreste des 1826 abgetragenen Lommatzscher Tores im Vordergrund integriert und das monumentale Bauwerk selbst in die Ferne gerückt. Papes feinfühlige und den architektonischen Details verpflichtete Zeichnung konzentriert sich dagegen ganz auf die Bebauung. In der Mitte zeigen sich der Treppenturm der Albrechtsburg und die Fassade des Doms, lange vor den neogotischen Türmen, die den heutigen Blick auf das Ensemble maßgeblich bestimmen. Hinter dem Dom sieht man die Spitze des Südostturmes, der auch "Höckriger Turm" genannt wird. Eduard Papes Name wird heute hauptsächlich mit der umfassenden Ausmalung des Neuen Museums in Berlin in Verbindung gebracht, an der er sich von 1849 bis 1853 beteiligte. Dies brachte ihm den Titel eines königlichen Professors ein, allerdings wurde sein späteres Schaffen immer wieder durch ein starkes Augenleiden unterbrochen. In der Ansicht des Meißner Burgberges mag auch etwas Biographisches mitschwingen: Papes Vater war Porzellanmaler und die Albrechtsburg beherbergte ab 1710 die erste europäische Porzellanmanufaktur. Gut möglich, dass sie daher Papes besonderes Interesse hervorrief.

        Memoirs of Doctor Burney. In three volumes

      London - Edward Moxon, 1832. London - Edward Moxon, 1832 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A lovely scarce first edition set of this moving biography of a fascinating character. 'Arranged from his own manuscripts, from family papers, and from personal recollections'. Watermarks of Michaelangelo,France to endpapers of volume II. Frances Burney (13 June 1752 6 January 1840), also known as Fanny Burney and, after her marriage, as Madame dArblay, was an English novelist, diarist and playwright. In homage to her father she gathered and in 1832 published, in three volumes, the Memoirs of Doctor Burney. The memoirs were written in a laudatory style, praising her father's accomplishments and character, and she cannibalised many of her own personal writings from years before in order to produce them. Charles Burney FRS (7 April 1726 12 April 1814) was an English music historian. The University of Oxford honoured Burney, on 23 June 1769, with the degrees of Bachelor and Doctor of Music, and his own work was performed. In 1769 he published An Essay towards a History of Comets. Amidst his various professional avocations, Burney never lost sight of his main projecthis History of Musicand decided to travel abroad and collect materials that could not be found in Britain. Accordingly, he left London in June 1770, carrying numerous letters of introduction, and travelled to Paris, Geneva, Turin, Milan, Padua, Venice, Bologna, Florence, Rome and Naples. The results of his observations were published in The Present State of Music in France and Italy (1771). This was very well received. In July 1772 Burney again visited the continent, to do further research, and, after his return to London, published his tour under the title of The Present State of Music in Germany, the Netherlands and United Provinces (1773). In 1773 he was chosen as a fellow of the Royal Society. In 1776 appeared the first volume (in quarto) of his long-projected History of Music. In 1782 Burney published his second volume; and in 1789 the third and fourth. Condition: Rebound in half morocco with marbled boards. Externally excellent,just alittle shelfwear. Internally, several gatherings of volume II from page 15 to 96 are detached but present. Otherwise firmly bound throughout.
