        Voyage au Congo

      1832. First Edition . (AFRICA) DOUVILLE, Jean-Baptiste. Voyage au Congo et dans l’Intérieur de l’Afrique Équinoxiale, Fait dans les Années 1828, 1829 et 1830. Paris: Jules Renouard, 1832. Three volumes and Atlas. Octavo, original pale blue printed wrappers, uncut and unopened; Atlas, slim folio (11-1/2 by 15 inches), original wrappers rebacked. Housed in custom paper-covered slipcase and clamshell box. $8500.First edition of this early description of the Congo and the far interior of Angola, with the rare Atlas containing an engraved title page, list of plates, 20 full-page lithographs of inhabitants and their way of life, and a large engraved folding map of the African interior by Brué.Douville (1794-1837) excited first wild enthusiasm and then widespread skepticism upon publication of his Voyage au Congo in 1832, on account of his explorations into the very heart of Africa. Although the work came under attack for fabrication, Douville maintained the authenticity of his account, and even Sir Richard Burton maintained that the Frenchman’s descriptions of the Congo were lifelike; that his observations on the anthropology, ceremonies, customs an maladies of the people were remarkably accurate; and that the native words used in his narrative were “for the most part given with unusual correctness.” “Douville continues to intrigue historians, not only because of the romantic and mysterious quality of the French traveler’s life, but because his book— if authentic— contains valuable information about the far interior of Angola at a period when few other sources allow more than occasional glimpses of the history and culture of the people who lived there. Douville’s credibility has recently received renewed support [by way of] verifying the accuracy of his data on the climate, geography, politics, and society, [noting] that many names appear in print for the first time in Douville and only later make their entry into the accounts of other travelers” (Joseph C. Miller). The scholarly consensus is that the chief source for Douville’s work was likely a group of unpublished Portuguese manuscripts to which he had ready access. The accompanying Atlas contains a large map by Adrien Hubert Brué. Between 1810-30, Brué was perhaps the most important practitioner of French cartography. His travels took him to the West African coast and South Asia and he was a member of the Société de Géographie de Paris and of the Royal Geographical Society in London. Brué held the office of Géographe du Roi and often signed his maps accordingly. His maps are characterized by precise accuracy, clarity of line and beautiful detail. Brué map laid into the Atlas. Text in French. Howgego D27. Slight soiling to exteriors, small wormhole to last gathering of Volume III (not affecting text). A nearly fine unopened copy in original wrappers.

        Atlas du Voyage au Congo et dans l'Interieur de l'Afrique Equinoxiale

      Paris: Chez J. Renouard, 1832. Hardcover. Fair. 20 plates (some of which are partially colored). Lacks original binding. 37cm. Also lacks any interior leaves preceding title-page or following the last plate, and also lacks the folding map which should face the title-page. Edges ragged. Tissue guards still present. Light to moderate foxing on all plates. From the John R. Willis Collection with his bookplate on verso of title-leaf. French text. This uncommon and rather appealing atlas was accompanied by three text volumes describing Douville's journey into Central Africa. Unfortunately it soon became clear that Douville's account was fictional and based on the travels of others rather than on any African explorations by Douville. Disgraced despite mounting a vigorous but ultimately unpersuasive defense of the veracity of his account, Douville went off to explore Brazil where he was reportedly murdered in 1837.

Steiner (1840-1906), a Georgia physician, planter, folklorist, and amateur archaeologist, whose excavation of the Etowah mounds near Macon, Georgia, form the core of the largest collection of artifacts from a single individual to have been donated to the Smithsonian ; with his bookplate ; "During the latter half of the 19th century and into the early part of the 20th century, Roland collected a massive quantity of prehistoric artifacts from areas throughout Georgia; including Mound C at the Etowah Mound site near Cartersville, Georgia and sites in Burke, Columbia, Floyd, Hancock, and several other counties. He became a member of the Georgia Historical Society on July 7, 1886, the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 1899 and the Society of American Folklore in the same year. In his lifetime, Roland collected more than 100,000 Native American relics from Georgia and South Carolina. Throughout the 1890s and early part of the 1910s, Steiner sent approximately 78,000 artifacts including copper axes, copper headdresses, conch shell cups and gorgets, pearl beads, pottery vessels, pottery statuettes, and other artifacts made of polished and chipped stone to the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C. His private collection at the Smithsonian is the largest private collection in the museum. Steiner also has collection of artifacts located at the American Museum of Natural History in New York, New York and the Field Museum in Chicago, Illinois." ; "Dr. Steiner has been, for about three years, at intervals, making deposits of aboriginal implements and objects in the National Museum. His collection amounts now to approximately 75,000 objects. They have been gathered by him in eastern Georgia, principally in Columbia and Burke Counties, though there is a very important collection made by himself from the Etowah Mounds in Bartow County...Not the least inconsiderable portion of Dr. Steiner?s collection, nor that of least value, is the result of his own excavation at the Etowah Mounds or, as they have been known, the Tumlin Mounds on the plantation of Col. Tumlin, Etowah Creek, Bartow County. These are probably the most renowned mounds of which we know, and have produced the rarest and most curious objects... It appears to me of the highest necessity that we should retain the objects from this mound that belong to Dr. Steiner, to the end that they may supplement the collection of Prof. Thomas. I would consider it almost an irreparable loss, one not to be calculated in dollars and cents, if the objects belonging to Dr. Steiner should be taken away and the collection from the Etowah Mound broken up. The purchase of this collection from Dr. Steiner will materially facilitate the complete excavation of the Etowah Mounds and insure to the Museum the possession of their riches in its entirety."--Thomas Wilson, Curator, Division of Prehistoric Anthropology, January 19, 1898. ; contributors included Nicasio Juan Gallego (1777-1853), Francisco Maria Raynouard, Taver John Nicols, Marie-Charles-Joseph Pougens (1755-1833), Jacob Pontusson De la Gardie, Robert Southey (1774-1843), Guy Arnault, Felix Torres Amat (1772-1857), Joseph del Castillo, Jose Maria Zuaznavar y Fracia, Alberto Rodríguez de Lista y Aragón (1775-1848), Romanillos Benito Ortega, Manuel López Cepero y Ardila (1778-1858), and others ; G, scarce

Sets with both parts are scarce in commerce, with only four traced at auction in the last forty years, this set from the collection of noted British Arabist and diplomatist Col. Samuel Barrett Miles (1838-1914), with his widow's bequest plate to Bath Public Library laid in, and associated discreet blind-stamps to the text as usual: an excellent association. "In 1810, following the British missions to Persia of John Malcolm and Harford Jones, [Gore] Ouseley was appointed ambassador-extraordinary to the court of Fath Ali Shah. Accompanying Mirza Abul Hasan, Ouseley left England in July 1810 and reached Bombay before landing at Bushehr on 1 March 1811. He passed through Shiraz and Esfahan, and reached Tehran on 9 November where a treaty was signed on 14 March 1812. It had been preceded by many disagreements over etiquette and substance, but in spite of difficulties and misunderstandings Wellesley was pleased and entirely approved of Ouseley's conduct. Fath Ali Shah was no less enthusiastic and commended Ouseley to the prince regent … There was further reciprocal respect when Ouseley met Abbas Muza, the prince royal, in Tabriz in 1812. Ouseley was instructed to use his good offices to mediate in the Perso-Russian hostilities. This culminated in the treaty of Gulistan on 13 October 1813. Ouseley left Tehran for Russia in mid-1814. He received the gratitude of the tsar, Alexander I, for his role and was honoured with the grand cordon of the order of St Alexander Nevsky" (ODNB). Ouseley, himself a a fine speaker of Persian, employed renowned linguist William Price (1771-1830) as interpreter and assistant secretary for the voyage. Price's drawings offer full documentation of a trip that took in the whole extent of Persia, from the south to the north, with many months spent at the principal seats of the Persian court, and a return journey to Europe through Armenia and Asia Minor: there are views of Bushire, Shiraz, Persepolis, Ispahan, Tehran, Tabriz, Develi, Asterak, Erzurum, and Constantinople. The text is arranged chronologically with daily diary entries, and includes a section on the antiquities of Persepolis, which appears between the two parts, and extensive notes on the Armenian language and cuneiform script.

Second edition of this important work of pomology, by two members of the Prince family of Flushing, New York, leading contributors to the development of horticulture in America.

It remained the foremost nursery in the United States until the middle of the nineteenth century, cultivating an unrivaled range of varieties and species, especially under the management of William Prince Jr., the author of A Short Treatise on Horticulture (1828), the first comprehensive work of its kind published in America. William Robert Prince wrote both his Treatise on the Vine (1830) and Pomological Manual (1831), with the assistance of his father, and also wrote the Manual of Roses (1846).

        [COMMONPLACE BOOK] JULIA ANN BANTZ nee HARTMAN (1814-1899)

      Commonplace book belonging to a young lady who lived and studied at the Lititz Seminary, now called Linden Hall, a girls' boarding school in Pennsylvania. The book appears to cover a period in her life immediately before and after her marriage; entries dated 1832 are usually in Lititz or York, Pennsylvania, and addressed to her maiden name, whereas later entries are in Frederick, Maryland, and addressed to her married name. Illustrated with some rather Gothic engravings, like "Sybil" and "The Doomed Bride", and with a few very attractive original ink drawings in color. Several poems take the engravings as their subject. A manuscript is laid in that contains a poem by Samuel Griswold Goodrich, better known as Peter Parley, the author of many children's books. It is seemingly only published in his autobiography and a children's magazine he edited. This manuscript appears to be of a similar age to the rest of the book, and is in his hand.~~The binding is tan calf, with a panel in blind and an elaborate border in gold. The leaves are variously colored, in blue, yellow, pink and cream. All edges gilt. The front board has been reattached.~.

        Lettre autographe signée (1874) à Paul Dalloz / Légion d'honneur

      - Doré (Gustave) (1832-1883) Illustrateur, graveur et peintre français Lettre autographe signée, 30 novembre 1874, à l’éditeur Paul Dalloz, 4 pages in-8, enveloppe. « J’ai de l’amour propre, me diras-tu ? Oui, mais c’est mon bien le meilleur, au milieu des dures épreuves de ma vie, et j’entends qu’il reste intact » Très belle lettre de Gustave Doré dans laquelle il implore son ami de cesser ses démarches en sa faveur concernant son élévation au grade d’officier de la Légion d’Honneur. « Cher ami, Je viens te remercier encore et du plus profond de mon coeur de l’amitié toute dévouée que tu as encore témoignée dans ces dernières circonstances ; et je t’assure que je te conserve pour ce fait des sentiments aussi reconnaissants que pour le service que tu m’as si spontanément et cordialement rendu il y a douze ans. Mais je viens réclamer de toi la même amitié en te priant, te suppliant même de t’arrêter complètement et absolument ; ce qui, je n’en doute pas, te coutera plus encore qu’autre chose. La nuit porte conseil. J’ai beaucoup pensé à tous ce que tu m’as dit hier, et je trouve que je me suis trompé tout à fait en te laissant t’engager si obligeamment dans ces démarches. Je voudrai même pouvoir suspendre ce qui est passé ; car je ne puis et ne veux plus admettre qu’il soit fait une demande insistante, là où il n’y a pas de grade à m’accorder mais un oubli injurieux à réparer. ( ) T’entendre dire que dans ce moment on ne peut disposer d’une seule de ces choses, dont on va faire dans trois semaines une distribution large, ce dont tu seras témoin comme moi, c’est t’entendre dire en bon français que tu es homme crédule et godiche. Je trouve cela misérable et impertinent. Je souffrirai donc de voir ta dignité comme la mienne s’engager plus avant : je te le répète sincèrement ; je me suis trompé, grandement trompé en te laissant faire, et je ne veux pas, tu entends bien, je ne veux pas que tu dises un mot de plus ; j’insiste tant sur ce que je te dis là ; que le contraire me désobligerait sur l’honneur, mon bon et cher ami ; il n’y a aucun sentiment de dépit dans cette détermination ; mais au contraire le sentiment d’une erreur commise et que je sais réparer ; le sort de ma dignité comme de la tienne ; et enfin (faut-il le dire) la crainte de ne voir qu’une supplique exaucée là où je pouvais croire à une réparation empressée. J’ai de l’amour propre, me diras-tu ? Oui, mais c’est mon bien le meilleur, au milieu des dures épreuves de ma vie, et j’entends qu’il reste intact. ( ) Ton ami G. Doré ». Gustave Doré sera finalement nommé Officier de la Légion d’honneur en 1879.

Horizontal fold expertly reinforced, tiny hole at top margin, creasing at lower corner, and one or two foxing spots, still about very good.. 1 sheet.

        The complete autograph working manuscript of Disraeli's novel Alroy, 397 leaves, paper of several sizes (the largest is 373 x 225 mm., the smallest 323 x 201 mm.), each leaf mounted on a stub at gutter, bound in two folio vols. (Vol. I: leaves 1-195; Vol. II: leaves 196-397), handsome later 19th-cent. blindstamped panelled morocco, dentelles gilt, spines gilt, t.e.g., others uncut

      [Jerusalem & London: ca. 1832]. The complete autograph working manuscript of Alroy, containing numerous authorial corrections, revisions, and deletions throughout. Disraeli (1804-81), politician, prime minister, and novelist, had spent the years 1830-32 on a tour of the Middle East, including a seminal week in Jerusalem. It was on this tour of the Holy Lands that Disraeli developed a strong sense of cultural relativism. While Disraeli was baptized into the Christian church at age 13, at the request of his father, a Voltairean sceptic, this was done mostly for practical reasons (Jews still faced significant legal discrimination in England at the time and could not own land, attend universities, or hold political office). Nevertheless, Disraeli maintained a deep interest in Judaism and Near and Middle Eastern affairs and culture all his life. This attractive manuscript of Disraeli's oriental romance, set in the medieval Middle East, concerns a 12th-century Jewish leader, David Alroy, who gained a significant following when he proclaimed himself the Messiah who would return the Jews to Jerusalem. He led an attack on the city of Amadiya - which is today in Iraqi Kurdistan - where he was defeated and killed.

Umarbeitung seines 1810 erschienenen \"Handbuch des peinlichen Prozesses\". - Mit Mittermaier (1787-1867) setzte sich endgültig das moderne Strafverfahren in Deutschland durch: Anklageverfahren, unabhängige Staatsanwaltschaft, Mündlichkeit, Öffentlichkeit des Verfahrens, freie Beweiswürdigung und Geschworenengerichte nach englischem Vorbild. Gerade in diesem Werk zeigt sich dabei sein pragmatischer, rechtsvergleichender Ansatz. Das vorliegende epochale Werk begründete Mittermaiers außergewöhnliche Stellung in der Geschichte des deutschen Strafprozesses, hochgeehrt auch außerhalb Deutschlands in Europa und den USA. Er war Professor in Landhut (seit 1811), Bonn (seit 1819) und Heidelberg (seit 1821). Nach seinem Studium in Landhut und Heidelberg und vor seiner akademischen Laufbahn war er Privatlehrer und zudem Assistent Feuerbachs in München. - NDB 17, 585; Kosch Staatshandb. II, 862.

        Billet autographe signé (1880) / Prima Donna

      - Manet (Edouard) (1832-1883) Peintre français Billet autographe signé, « Mercredi » (1880 ?), au sculpteur Jean-Charles Chabrié, 1 page in-16. « Mon cher Chabrié, Montez donc demain en rentrant, j’ai à vous présenter une prima donna. Amitiés. E. Manet ». Dans ce billet, il est fort probable que Edouard Manet mentionne le portrait qu’il en train d’achever de la célèbre cantatrice Émilie Ambre. Dans une lettre à Eva Gonzalès en date du 27 septembre 1880, Manet écrit : « Pour ce qui est de moi, je travaille à nouveau. En ce moment, je fais un portrait de Mlle Emilie Ambre, une châtelaine prima donna. Je vais y travailler tous les jours parce qu'elle part pour l'Amérique le 8 octobre ».

In 8vo; pp. XXXVI, 380, 4 n.nn. 21 tavole, di queste 16 incise all'acquatinta e 5 incise in rame. Alcune tavole corte di margini. Mezza pelle post., tassello al dorso con titolo in oro. Il canonico De Jorio ha con quest'opera codificato l'arte del gestire dei napoletani. Colas, 1555. Wikipedia.it: "Andrea de Jorio (Procida, 16 febbraio 1769 – Napoli, 1º febbraio 1851) è stato un archeologo ed etnografo italiano. Come ha ricordato Benedetto Croce a proposito del linguaggio dei gesti, il volume più noto del canonico di Procida è rappresentato da La mimica degli antichi del 1832, in cui è stata per la prima volta studiata la gestualità dei napoletani, individuando una continuità dall'epoca antica ad oggi sul linguaggio del corpo, in particolare mostrando le similitudini tra il pari linguaggio degli antichi greci, ricavato grazie alle raffigurazioni presenti su vasi e reperti archeologici: questo tema, secondo alcuni studiosi, potrebbe fare di de Jorio il primo etnografo della mimica.

(Vol. I: leaves 1-195; Vol. II: leaves 196-397), handsome later 19th-cent. blindstamped panelled morocco, dentelles gilt, spines gilt, t.e.g., others uncut

      [Jerusalem & London: ca. 1832]. The complete autograph working manuscript of Alroy, containing numerous authorial corrections, revisions, and deletions throughout. Disraeli (1804-81), politician, prime minister, and novelist, had spent the years 1830-32 on a tour of the Middle East, including a seminal week in Jerusalem. It was on this tour of the Holy Lands that Disraeli developed a strong sense of cultural relativism. While Disraeli was baptized into the Christian church at age 13, at the request of his father, a Voltairean sceptic, this was done mostly for practical reasons (Jews still faced significant legal discrimination in England at the time and could not own land, attend universities, or hold political office). Nevertheless, Disraeli maintained a deep interest in Judaism and Near and Middle Eastern affairs and culture all his life. This attractive manuscript of Disraeli's oriental romance, set in the medieval Middle East, concerns a 12th-century Jewish leader, David Alroy, who gained a significant following when he proclaimed himself the Messiah who would return the Jews to Jerusalem. He led an attack on the city of Amadiya - which is today in Iraqi Kurdistan - where he was defeated and killed. The novel deals with "the dilemma faced by a…Middle Eastern Jew who sought fame, but who faced conflicting ideals: between establishing a purely Jewish regime and a larger empire assimilating other religions.

British-born Charles Savage (1832-1909) came to New York in the 1850's and after being introduced to Mormonism and photography, moved to Salt Lake City. In partnership with George M. Ottinger (1833-1917) he was one of the most successful photographers West of the Mississippi, specializing in Rocky Mountain landscapes, life on the plains, and Salt Lake City and Mormonism related images. "During the partnership, Savage, worked as field man, preferring the out-of-doors. Throughout the remainder of the nineteenth century he was the best-known photographer between the Mississippi and Texas. His photograph of the joining of the Central Pacific and Union Pacific railroads at Promontory is among the most celebrated documentary photographs of the American West" (Collector's Guide to Nineteenth Century Photographs, 62).Savage's studio burned in 1883, destroying most of his prints and negatives.

        Neuestes Gemälde von Australien.

      Vienna: Anton Doll, 1832. Octavo, with six full-page copperplate engravings; in an attractive contemporary European binding of glazed paper masquerading as quarter calf with russet label, marbled paper spine and boards. An early German-language history of New Holland, featuring crisp images of Sydney and Hobart, after Leopold Beyer and Sainson respectively. The work begins with a helpful introduction to the voyages of exploration, including a chronological table, and is followed by a long review of New Holland (pages 39-126). Later sections detail many of the most important islands in the Pacific, including good reviews of Hawaii, New Zealand and New Guinea.All of the plates make a lovely contribution to the visual history of the Pacific. Apart from the views of Sydney and Hobart, there are also strong depictions of Carteret Bay on the Bismarck Archipelago, the funerary practices of the Solomon Islands, a scene of the restrictions for taboo in Tonga, and of a British settlement in Tahiti.The work was published as volume 30 of Schütz's series Allgemeine Erdkunde, and a list of all the titles is given at the back. As this individual volume is the only one in the series relevant to the Pacific, it is commonly sold by itself: both the Mitchell Library and National Library of Australia copies are recorded as a single volume. Some old and small library stamps throughout, early shelf-mark on front board, but a very nice copy.

Red leather with gilt ornamentation on the spines. xxiv, 198, 207; Xxxi, 273 pp. Black and white plates and vignettes throughout, as well as one in color (in the 2 in 1 book). These are all present as called for. The one volume 1819 edition contains many black and white plates and maps, with severe misnumbering, duplicate numbering or no numbers from plate 30 on, making collation very difficult, and impossible to say if all plates are there. One in color in this book. Two volumes bound as one gathering the 1832 edition in one book, with a separate book, bound the same, presenting the presumed 1819 edition of Pompeiana. A work discussing the archaeological findings at Pompeii, examining the lay out of the city and buildings, as well as architecture, art and other aspects of the city. With three armorial bookplates: one from Sir Robert Peel mentioning Drayton Manor; one from Wickham Noakes; and one, in the rear, from Everett E. Whitney. GOOD condition. Deep scuff and superficial peeling to a 2 ½ by ½ inch section of the front cover of the 1832 book, with otherwise minor general scuffing, uneven fading, darkening and minor soiling to both books. Leather very scuffed and worn along the hinges, with darkening and minor cracking to the spines. Front hinge split along the upper 1/3 of the 1817-1819 volume. Scattered foxing throughout each, affecting the plates. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
