        Arrestation et mises en accusation des passagers du San-Carlo prévenus de complot contre le gouvernement. Mémoires, pièces relatives.

      Imprimerie de Marius Olive et imprimerie de Louis Perrin 1832 - - Imprimerie de Marius Olive et imprimerie de Louis Perrin, Marseille. Lyon. _1832, In 4 (21x26cm), 59, 28, 16, 15, 15, 39, 19, 71, 37, 17pp., relié. - Ensemble de pièces relatives à la tentative d'insurrection de la duchesse de Berry (Caroline de Bourbon, ou Madame) lorqu'elle débarqua du San-Carlo, bateau-vapeur sarde, sur les côtes de Provence. Depuis les événements de juillet 1830, la duchesse du Berry et le parti légitimiste avait toujours été hostiles au nouveau gouvernement et à son Monarque, le roi Louis-Philippe. La duchesse du Berry tenta donc par tous les moyens de placer sur le trône son fils Henry V de Bourbon, l'aventure du San-Carlo de Marseille constitue une des tentatives de lka duchesse pour fomenter un complot, rallier ses amis de provence. Demi Basane verte d'époque. Dos lisse orné à froid et filets dorés. Dos manquant aux 2/3. Le San-Carlo, en difficulté, fut contraint d'entrer dans la rade de la ciotat où ses passagers furent arrêtés, du valet de chambre au capitaine. Parmi les passagers se trouvaient le père et le fils de Kergolais, qui avaient jurés de ne pas prêter serment au nouveau gouvernement (le père fut député et pair sous la Restauration). A noter que le procès des Kergolais (qui se déroula à Monbrison et non à Aix) vit la seule intervention en tant qu'avocat de Alexis de Toqueville, qui fit un plaidoyer pour défendre son jeune ami de Kergolais. D'autres personnages furent également impliqués dans cette affaire, ainsi du général Saint-Priest, ou de Philippe-Auguste de Bourmont. Quant à la duchesse, bien que surveillée par la police, et qui fut incapable d'organiser son insurrection, elle voyagea jusqu'à Nantes où elle tenta de réveiller les guerres de Vendée, et elle fut peu après arrêtée et emprisonnée. Bien que le procès eut lieu à Monbrison, toutes les pièces concernant la découverte de l'affaire se firent à Aix, puis à Lyon. On demande ainsi, après avoir découvert des preuves du débarquement de la duchesse, que celle-ci soit poursuivie. Les pièces discutent également de la légalité de l'arrestation. On distingue : une première pièce, relative à l'arrêstation des sujets sardes du bateau (59pp.). 'Arrestation à main armée des passagers du Carlo-Alberto, navire Sarde, violation du droit des gens (28pp.). 'Observations à Messieurs. pou Monsieur Louis-Florian Paul, Comte de Kergolais, pair de france, inculpé de complot et attentat contre le gouvernemant.'(16pp.). Une revendication du Carlo-Alberto par son propriétaire (plusieurs pièces 15pp. 15pp. 39pp.). Une pièce de 19pp. qui renvoie l'affaire à Lyon. Un mémoire pour le directeur du navire se plaignant d'avoir été arrêté illégalement (71pp.). Arrestation et détention illégale (37pp.). Enfin, une dernière pièce intitulée 'Conclusions motivées pour le Vicomte de Saint-Priest, Pierre-Auguste de Bourmont, Louis de Kergolais. contre M. le procureur général (17pp.) 59, 28, 16, 15, 15, 39, 19, 71, 37, 17pp. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Philobiblon: A Treatise on the Love of Books . Written in MCCCXLIV Amd Translated from the First Edition of MCCCCLXXIII with Some Collations

      Printed for Thomas Rodd 1832 - Modern, but very well-done quarter leather, with raised bands, black leather title label on spine, gilt lettering, impressed fleur de leys in panels. Marbeled boards. Clean and fresh internally. Handwritten "erratum" inserted facing preface. From E.C. Thomas's bibliographical essay of De Bury's Philobiblon (Shakespeare Head Press, 1959): "In 1832 there appeared an anonymous English translation of the Philobiblon, London: Printed for Thomas Rudd . (8vo, pp. vii, 151), Lord Campbell, in the first volume of the Lives of Chancellors, published in 1845, cites it anonymously, but it is known to have been translated by Mr. John Bellingham Inglis, a student and collector of early printed books. The translation is a work of more spirit than accuracy, and Inglis has too slavishly followed the edition of 1473, under the mistaken idea that it was most likely to represent the genuine text of the author. He has added 'a few collations' which are, however, confinded to printed editions, and thirty seven pages of notes, devoted largely to what Dibdin describes as 'unprovoked and unjustifiable abuse of the English Church and her Ministers.' Probably only a small edition was printed, as the work has become scarce." [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        "The Edinburgh encyclopaedia, conducted by David Brewster ... with the assistance of gentlemen eminent in science and literature ... The first American edition, corrected and improved by the addition of numerous articles relative to the institutions of the American continent..."

      Philadelphia: Joseph and Edward Parker. 1832. "18 volumes text, plus 2 volumes of plates; 4to, original mottled calf, red and black morocco labels on spines; some internal tears, minor rubbing and scuffing, occasional mild to moderate dampstains, some foxing, several flyleaves loose with tears, one partially torn away, but in all a very good, sound, reasonably clean copy, with no chipping, and no breaks at any of the joints or hinges. The plate volumes are generally clean but do exhibit modest offsetting and spotting.& & Extra engraved title page in vol. I (with a New York imprint), and with 533 (of 539) engraved plates (4 folding, 2 double-page, 1 with an overlay; 1 torn at fold, 1 with a small hole in the middle, several with short tears; some misnumbered, some bound out of order, some with duplicate numbers, and some numbers missing. Whether all 539 listed in the 18 plate lists were published is a matter of conjecture. & & Additionally, in the text volumes, and not noted in the plate lists, are 10 engraved maps (2 folding), 3 portraits (Franklin, Hamilton, and Fisher Ames), and a nice double-page engraving of Philadelphia by Campbell after Birch. & & The work was first published in Edinburgh 1808-1830, and appeared in this American edition of 1832. However, in spite of its superb articles, it was a commercial failure, and no further editions were printed. In fact, the plate lists and first page of text in volumes I and II identify this as the second American edition, but no others and the idea of a second American edition seems to have been dropped. The title pages in all volumes state ""first American edition.""& & Among the contributors were Charles Babbage, Jacob Berzelius, Thomas Carlyle, John Lizars, Scoresby, Robert Stevenson, and James Watt."

        Willow Ptarmigan. Lagopus Saliceti

      London: [by the Author, 1832-1837]. Lithograph, coloured by hand, by J & E. Gould, printed by C. Hullmandel. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling and minor foxing. 14 1/4 x 21 1/8 inches. A beautiful image from John Gould's 'The Birds of Europe': a work which, according to Hyman, 'included some of the most remarkable bird drawings ever made'. This plate is from the second of John Gould's great ornithological portfolios. Gould undertook this work not only hoping to build on the success of his first work (on the birds of the Himalaya mountains), but also in an effort to redress the imbalance between the study of local and foreign ornithology. It was his opinion that too much attention had focused on the exotic, whilst the beauty of the more local species was ignored. He wrote in the preface to the work from which this image comes: 'It has been frequently remarked that the productions of distant countries have received a much larger share of attention than those objects by which we are more immediately surrounded; and it is certainly true, that while numerous and costly illustrations have made us acquainted with the Ornithology of most other parts of the world, the Birds of Europe, in which we are, or ought to be, more interested, have not received that degree of attention which they naturally demand. The present work has been undertaken to supply that deficiency.' The images in this work are the first to be published by Gould that show the liveliness of treatment that was to become such a feature of later works. This break from the traditional methods of bird depiction can be largely attributed to the influence of and contributions from Edward Lear: 'They are certainly among the most remarkable bird drawings ever made, [for] it is evident that Lear endowed them with some measure of his own whimsy and intelligence, his energetic curiosity, his self-conscious clumsiness and his unselfconscious charm'. (Hyman) Cf. Anker 169; cf.Balis 101; cf.Fine Bird Books (1990), p. 102; cf.Nissen IVB 371; cf.Sauer 2; cf.Zimmer p. 251.

        Medico-Botanical Pocket-Book Comprising a Compendium of Vegetable Toxicology Illustrated with Coloured Figures with Their Botanical Descriptions, Poisonous Effects, Treatment .. And ..an Appendix ... Of Mineral and Other Poisons Illustrated with Tests

      Soho, London: John Churchill, 1832. Circa 1832 or earlier, likely 1st ed. The author, George Spratt, was a surgeon in the early 1800s and editor of Flora Medica and of the third edition of Woodville's Medical Botany amongst other works.In the words of the author: " .... The study of medical botany is now considered to be indespensable to the professional man, and an accurate botanical knowledge of those plants which are noxious, and frequently more fatal to human life, is absolutely requisite for him... Every person residing in this country... may experience the advantages resulting from such an acquirement... Our fields and gardens abound with plants which are noxious, while the aspect of many of them is pleasing and attractive to children... (I) have been induced to compile this compendium of vegetable toxicology from a belief that there does not exist in our language a work in which the various plants are figured with that fidelity and botanical accuracy which is demanded on so important a subject... In a work professedly intended to illustrate... the principle indigenous noxious vegetables scattered over the fields and meadows, and some of the exotic poisons cultivated in our gardens... it would be foreign to the object of the work to enter into the chemical, physiological, or pathological investigations... In the present work, the Editor's aim has been to give accurate delineations of the various plants... with their botanical characteristics, the symptoms produced by their internal or external applications, and the remedial agents to be resorted to, when, by accident or design, a sufficient quantity has been administered to produce alarming and dangerous symptoms." Containing 188 pages, this book has 49 full color plates beautifully illustrating these deadly plants. Book condition is fair at best, heavily worn boards, taped spine, cracked hinges. Interior text block and illustrations are fine. The beauty and value of the book resides in its unusual contents and fabulous illustrations. Contents include: Arum or Wake Robin, White Bryony, Crocus, Celandine, Crowfoot, Hemlock, Hellebore, Lobelia, Mezeron, Wolfsbane or Monkshood, Birthwort, Foxglove, Henbane, Cowbane, lettuce, Nightshade, Poppy, Thorn Apple, Tobacco, various Mushrooms, Fly Amanita, Agaric, corrosive poisons, Lead, Arsenic, Copper, Muriate and sulphate of tin and Zinc, acids, Oxalic acid, prussic acid, Cantharides or Spanish Fly and more. First Edition. Hard Cover. Fair. Illus. by Illustrated.

        ANTOLOGIA, giornale di scienze, lettere ed arti - 1832 anno XII COMPLETO - VOLUMI XLV - XLVIII - Fascicoli dal 133 al 144 ultimo uscito., Firenze, Gabinetto di G.P. Vieusseux, 1832

      formato 15,5 x 25,5, brossure con copertine grigie, fogli in barbe e molti ancora chiusi. Buone condizioni generali . Pagine 180-200 per ogni volume + indici ed allegati. La rivista iniziò nel gennaio 1821 e si concluse con il volume 144 del dicembre 1832. La pubblicazione venne soppressa dal Governo del Granducato ed i fascicoli di gennaio e febbraio 1833 vennero stampati ma non pubblicati. (vedi Righini volume I, pag.40 posizione 136) L'articolo di TOMMASSEO compare proprio nel numero 144 del novembre-dicembre 1832 che fa parte di questa rara annata. e che provoco' la reazione e la pressione dell'AUSTRIA per la chiusura. La rivista era nata per ospitare soltanto importanti traduzioni ed estratti da edizioni straniere. Mentre in Europa stavano mutando governi e soprattutto i fermenti patriottici e di "cambiamento prendevano sostanza", il gruppo di intellettuali riuniti attorno alla rivista da G.P. Vieusseux prese coscienza di potere interpretare un ruolo di guida politica di spirito (ad anche marcatamente culturale) LIBERALE ED INNOVATORE APERTO ANCHE ALL'EUROPA e cavalcò questo ruolo moderato per alcuni anni, puntando sul fatto che il Granducato era il solo che permetteva una certa libertà di pensiero. Ebbe un largo successo ed i suoi 500 abbonati superavano di gran lunga quelli di rinomati periodici lombardi e settentrionali. Ma poi si crearono forti ostilità da parte delle autorità , prima con interventi censori e poi con la definitiva chiusura della rivista. Espressione viva del nostro RISORGIMENTO LIBERALE, fu la prima rivista dove lo spirito nazionale si trovò riunito e risvegliò le coscienze. Eccezionale ed autorevole la schiera dei collaboratori.

        Squacco Heron. Ardea comata

      London: [by the Author, 1832-1837]. Lithograph, coloured by hand, by J & E. Gould, printed by C. Hullmandel. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling. 21 1/8 x 14 1/4 inches. A beautiful image from John Gould's 'The Birds of Europe': a work which, according to Hyman, 'included some of the most remarkable bird drawings ever made'. This plate is from the second of John Gould's great ornithological portfolios. Gould undertook this work not only hoping to build on the success of his first work (on the birds of the Himalaya mountains), but also in an effort to redress the imbalance between the study of local and foreign ornithology. It was his opinion that too much attention had focused on the exotic, whilst the beauty of the more local species was ignored. He wrote in the preface to the work from which this image comes: 'It has been frequently remarked that the productions of distant countries have received a much larger share of attention than those objects by which we are more immediately surrounded; and it is certainly true, that while numerous and costly illustrations have made us acquainted with the Ornithology of most other parts of the world, the Birds of Europe, in which we are, or ought to be, more interested, have not received that degree of attention which they naturally demand. The present work has been undertaken to supply that deficiency.' The images in this work are the first to be published by Gould that show the liveliness of treatment that was to become such a feature of later works. This break from the traditional methods of bird depiction can be largely attributed to the influence of and contributions from Edward Lear: 'They are certainly among the most remarkable bird drawings ever made, [for] it is evident that Lear endowed them with some measure of his own whimsy and intelligence, his energetic curiosity, his self-conscious clumsiness and his unselfconscious charm'. (Hyman) Cf. Anker 169; cf.Balis 101; cf.Fine Bird Books (1990), p. 102; cf.Nissen IVB 371; cf.Sauer 2; cf.Zimmer p. 251.
