        The Young Cricketers' Tutor: Comprising Full Directions For Playing The Elegant And Manly Game Of Cricket . To Which Is Added "the Cricketers Of My Time" .

      Effingham Wilson 1833 - This classic cricket volume is basically two books in one; the first is more a less an instructional manual, telling us how the game works and discussing the various techniques. The second section, meanwhile, is far more colourful and interesting because it describes the players of Nyren's childhood in the late 18th century, when Hambledon reigned supreme as the leading club in England. Nowhere else in the game's literature are player's from this era described in such detail and with such obvious affection. John Nyren was born in Hambledon in 1764, the son of the club's great figurehead, Richard Nyren. Nyren jnr's collaboration with Charles Cowden Clarke has been the subject of much speculation. But is is safe to say that Clarke more of less reworked into proper English notes and observations made by Nyren when recalling the early days of the Hambledon club under the stewardship of his father, Richard, who for many years ran the Bat and Ball public house outside the village at Broadhalfpenny Down. "Nyren" has run to at least eighteen editions over the last 150 years, mostly with slight editions or ammendments, not least to the title. First Edition. 12mo. 126pp. Engraved frontispiece, by Robert Seymour, of a view of the Mary-le-Bone Club's Cricket Ground, foxed. Original green cloth with title on printed label to front cover. Foxing throughout, page edges browned. Spine expertly restored, new end-papers. Ex.libris EDR Eagar, bookplate. A good copy of one of the bedrock cricket volumes and perhaps one of the best known of all sports books. Scarce.  [Padwick, 390]

        Ixia Tricolor / Ixia Tricolore [Harlequin Flower]

      Paris: [C.L.F. Panckoucke, 1833. A beautiful image from "Choix des Plus Belles Fleurs": one of greatest flower books ever published by the most celebrated flower painter of all time. Pierre-Joseph Redouté was one of the world's great flower painters. Born into a family that had been painters for at least two generations, Redouté went to Paris in 1782 with his brother where they worked as scene painters for the Théâtre Italien. Redouté painted flowers in his spare time. The search for subjects led him to the Jardin du Roi and eventually to Gerard van Spaendonck who made him an assistant. While at the Jardin du Roi, Redouté came to know Charles-Louis L'Heritier, an amateur botanist and writer of independent means. He gave Redouté a full time job as an illustrator, instructing him in plant anatomy. Redouté's scientific understanding of plants contributed greatly to the clarity of his depictions. But it was Redouté's work in stipple engraving and colour printing that was to be of the greatest importance. Stippling and the application of two or three colour inks to one plate were engraving innovations that Redouté brought to French printmaking, and these were brought to perfection in his three great works: Les Liliacees (1802-1816), Les Roses (1817-1824) and the work from which this image comes Choix des plus belles fleurs... et ... des plus belles fruits which was published in 36 parts with 144 plates between 1827 and 1833. The present image shows Redouté at his most assured, combining the best of his artistic background with his skill as an observer of nature. He writes in the preface to the Choix : ''It is with the benefit of experience, and encouraged by the most flattering approval of naturalists and painters of France and abroad, that I undertook took this most agreeable of botanical works. By ceaseless observation of nature, in its constancy and its variety of forms and colours, I believe that I have reached that synthesis of botanical accuracy, composition and colouration that is essential to produce the perfect image of the plant kingdom.' Cf. Hunt Redouteana 21; cf. Dunthorne p 235; cf. Great Flower Books (1990), p 129; cf. Nissen BBI 1591; cf. Pritzel 7456; cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 8750. Stipple engraving, printed in colours and finished by hand, engraved by Victor. Very good condition apart a small, soft crease to the top left corner, and some very slight foxing at sheet edges top and right.

        Sepolero Regio, o Consolare, inciso nella rupe del Monte Albano or nel Conv. de PP. Francescani a Palazzuolo?

      Paris 1833 - This print was published between 1806-1833. John Wilton-Ely 644The watermark that is present is number 93 in John Wilton-Ely on page 1182 and is dated in the mid 1830sFrom the series "Antichita di Albano e di Castel Gandolfo"Royal or Consular tomb carved into the rock face of Mount Albano" (John Wilton-Ely)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. Vasi.et 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 inte

Edges of leaves a bit dust-soiled, unobtrusive library stamp on title and plates, but a fine copy. Presentation Copy, inscribed by Bushnan to John Lizars (c. 1787-1860) on the half-title: "Professor Lizars with John Bushnan's best regards." Bookplate of the Birmingham Medical Institute, noting that this copy was the gift of [Robert] Lawson Tait (1845-99).First Edition in English of the rarest book in English on plastic surgery after Carpue's Account of Two Successful Operations for Restoring a Lost Nose (1816). The above work is a translation, prepared by physician and medical writer John Stevenson Bushnan, of the section on rhinoplasty from Dieffenbach's Chirurgische Erfahrunugen (1829-34). Bushnan augmented Dieffenbach's text with annotations, accounts of his own cases and an important, well-documented history of rhinoplastic operations. Bushnan presented this copy to Scottish surgeon John Lizars (see Garrison-Morton 6026), whose letter describing a rhinoplasty operation he had performed in 1831 is reprinted on p. 157; the case is illustrated in plate XXV. This copy later passed into the ownership of another Scottish surgeon, Lawson Tait, who is cited seven times in Garrison-Morton for his contributions to gynecological and plastic surgery.Dieffenbach's clinical work in plastic surgery was "monumental in its variety, inventiveness and breadth of scope. . . . Although Dieffenbach also used the Italian method of rhinoplasty, he preferred the Indian method because of the stronger quality of the forehead skin. . . . [He also] realized that the various metal contrivances of Tagliacozzi and von Graefe for shaping the new nose were largely ineffectual, and he devised many subsequent procedures for trimming and shaping the nose, thus greatly improving the results attainable by the Indian method" (Gnudi & Webster, pp. 321-22). Dieffenbach pioneered many methods and principles of plastic surgery which "have not been improved upon and are still constantly employed" (Gnudi & Webster, p. 321). Zeis 513.

Cobden-Sanderson (signed on the rear turn-in and dated 1898), flat spine with five raised bands, lettered in two panels and dated at foot, the other panels tooled with floral designs and filled with dots, board-edges ruled in gilt, turn-ins with four-line gilt rules, corners of turn-ins with floral tools to match spine compartments, gilt edges; the last volume (either not bound by the Doves Bindery or subsequently lost) in contemporary half calf, inserted in a later morocco-backed slipcase, spine tooled in gilt to match. Engraved frontispiece and series title to each vol.; vol. I bound without series half-title or printed title. Spines gently tanned, some light marginal browning, an excellent set. A finely bound set from the Doves Bindery, signed and dated relatively early. Cobden-Sanderson established the bindery in March 1893, designing and supervising its bindings. The staff was mainly from Riviere's, comprising Charles McLeish, finisher, Charles Wilkinson, forwarder, Miss Bessie Hooley, sewer (later replaced by Alice Mansell), with Douglas Cockerell the apprentice. The bindery's work in the early days was primarily for the Kelmscott Press, including the famous pigskin bindings on the Kelmscott Chaucers, but eventually the balance of their work was outside individual commissions. The bindery continued until 1921.

During the late 18th and early 19th century she was a preeminent literary hostess in Berlin at one of the most prominent salons in Europe. Many of her popular soirées were attended by the Romantics writers of the period. She briefly lost her fortune in 1806, but after meeting and marrying Prussian diplomat K. A. Varnhagen von Ense, Rahel's salon once again became the most notable social focus of Berlin literary life and was frequented by the likes of Heinrich Heine, Alexander von Humboldt, F. de la Motte Foqué, A. Von Chamisso, Ludwig Tieck, Friedrich Gentz, Schlegel, and others. Text in German, gothic script. Some age wear and heavy staining on binding. Head and tail of spine chipped. Faded green page edges.

        An APPEAL In FAVOR Of That CLASS Of AMERICANS CALLED AFRICANS.

      Allen and Ticknow, Boston: 1833 - Frontis. Plate. "More ambitious in scope than either its predecessors or its successors, Child's Appeal also differs strikingly in style and substance from other white American abolitionist tracts, including the many that bear witness to its influence. Unlike Amos A. Phelps's Lectures on Slavery and Its Remedy (1834), William Ellery Channing's Slavery (1835), Angelina GrimkŽ's Appeal to the Christian Women of the South (1836), and Theodore Dwight Weld's The Bible against Slavery (1837), the Appeal relies very sparingly on religious and scriptural arguments. Unlike Weld in American Slavery As It Is (1839), Child relegates incidents of cruelty to a minor place in the Appeal. Unlike GrimkŽ, Child emphasizes rational rather than emotional persuasion, cultivates a political discourse that is more masculine than feminine, and targets a gender-mixed rather than a female audience. And unlike abolitionist tract writers generally, not excepting Richard Hildreth, whose Despotism in America (1840) amplifies the Appeal's economic and political analysis, Child looks beyond the issue of slavery to the larger imperative of ending discrimination against free African Americans. In short, the Appeal's most distinctive and enduring feature is its indictment of racism, which governs four out of eight chapters, recurs as a sub-theme elsewhere in the book, and shapes Child's argument throughout." [eNotes, History]. However, as Child predicted in her preface [". though I expect ridicule and censure, I cannot fear them."], this stance of equality extracted a personal cost in terms of her public image & popularity, e.g., the Boston Athaneum retracted the free library privileges that had been conferred & her book sales plunged. Nevertheless, today the work is acknowledged as a ground-breaking tour-de- force, occupying a preeminent role in American Abolitionist literature. Scarce in the trade, with ABPC current showing only 3cc at auction in the last 30+ years, with the last in 2000 [with that copy imperfect, lacking the errata]. Professionally rebacked.

        Voyages Round the World; with selected sketches of voyages to the South Seas, North and South Pacific Oceans, China, etc.between 1792 and 1832

      New York 1833 - Original green cloth-backed brown/grey paper covered-boards, printed paper label to spine (label chipped, neat repairs to spine), green cloth chemise, green cloth slipcase, brown morocco lettering-piece Provenance: E.A. Bradford (early pencilled signature to front pastedown); Sarah F. Bradford (inscription) First edition of a classic narrative of voyages to the Pacific. Fanning's adventurous life at sea began at a young age. A native of Connecticut, he set sail in 1792 for the South Seas in search of seal skins. During the following quarter century he made voyages around the world and to the Pacific, visiting Australia, south Georgia, Fiji, Tonga, and the Marquesas. Included in his work is a narrative of the first American naval exploring expedition to the southern hemisphere in 1829-30 by Benjamin Pendleton. "Fanning, who went to sea as a 14-year-old cabin boy in 1783, first sailed to the South Seas on a voyage for seal skins on the Betsey in May 1797. During the next 25 years he either captained or directed over 70 voyages to the Pacific and around the globe, personally visiting China, Australia, Fiji, and the Marquesas. In 1798 he discovered both Fanning and Palmyra Islands.the latter is officially a part of the city and county of Honolulu and is privately owned by a Honolulu family. In 1829 Fanning was instrumental in sending out an exploring expedition under the command of Captain Benjamin Pendleton and Nataniel Brown Palmer. It was Fanning's petition to Congress and largely his own personal efforts that led to the . fitting out of the United States Exploring Expedition [i.e Wilkes Expedition]" (Forbes). The Bishop Museum in Honolulu holds Princess Kaiulani's copy of Fanning's Voyages.

        James Madison Signed Membership Form as President of American Colonization Society

      Washington 1833 - Document Signed. "Office of the Colonization Society." Washington, [ca. 1833-1836]. With Society's seal engraved at bottom center (a ship sailing towards Liberia, with Latin motto "Lex in Tenebris" - light amid darkness). 1 p., 8 1/4 x 11 1/8 in. A rare blank membership certificate, signed in advance by the Society's President. It would have conferred a life membership in the controversial American Colonization Society, which advocated gradual manumission of slaves and colonization of freed blacks to Liberia.Signed membership certificates from the Society are relatively rare. Only four have appeared in major auction records in the last 30 years. According to the Library of Congress, "Selling life memberships was a standard fund-raising practice of benevolent societies such as the American Colonization Society. At thirty dollars each, the memberships were a popular gift for ministers. In 1825, one of the agents who sold the certificates in New England estimated that 'not less than $50,000 have in this way been poured into the treasury of the Lord.'"This is a superb artifact of antebellum America. It marks the commitment of the "Father of the Constitution" to a solution to the race dilemma that would be castigated today, but which was moderate for its time. Complete TranscriptOffice of the Colonization Society WashingtonThis certifies that ______________ is a Member for life of the AMERICAN COLONZATION SOCIETY. James MadisonLux in Tenebris Am Col: Soc: A.D. 1816.Historical BackgroundThe A.C.S. was founded in 1816 as the American Society for Colonizing the Free People of Color of the United States. Its mission was to promote the voluntary manumission of slaves by their owners, and to remove free blacks from the United States and relocate them to the African colony of Liberia.Madison, James Monroe, Bushrod Washington, Henry Clay, Daniel Webster, Andrew Jackson and Francis Scott Key were among the luminaries who lent their names to the A.C.S. Most A.C.S. members were slaveowners from the upper South, like Madison, Monroe, Clay, and Jackson. The animating ideas behind it - that slavery was evil, but that whites and free blacks could never live together in peace - long predated its inception. Thomas Jefferson himself urged the removal of blacks when he wrote his Notes on the State of Virginia in 1782. He and Madison hated slavery, for its effect on the economy, for its psychological impact on white youths, and for its injustice, but they shared a nightmare vision of an America torn apart by race. As Jefferson predicted, "Deep-rooted prejudices entertained by the whites; ten thousand recollections, by the blacks, of the injuries they have sustained . will divide us into parties, and produce convulsions, which will probably never end but in the extermination of the one or the other race."Madison joined the A.C.S. in 1816, but he had written a "Memorandum on an African Colony for Freed Slaves" in 1789. He justified his position in a letter to the Marquis de Lafayette, explaining that "the two races cannot co-exist, both being free and equal. The great sina qua non, therefore, is some external asylum for the coloured race." (Ketchum, James Madison, 628). Historian Drew McCoy writes that "Madison's antislavery motives . are unimpeachable. He never supported colonization because he wanted to deport free blacks; he consistently supported it because he wanted to eradicate slavery. And since his analysis never explicitly led to the conclusion that blacks were inherently deficient or inferior [as it had for Jefferson], perhaps it is misleading to consider his formal position, in any meaningful sense of the term, 'racist."With a $100,000 bequest from Congress, the first boatload of settlers arrived in Liberia in 1822. The capital of Liberia - Monrovia - was named after James Monroe, U.S. President at the time and a member of A.C.S. Most voluntary emigrants fell victim to diseases within months of .

        Sense and Sensibility. With; Mansfield Park. With; Northanger Abbey and Persuasion. With; Pride and Prejudice.

      Richard Bentley, New Burlington Street, London 1833 - Together, Five Austen Novels in Four Volumes. The FIRST ONE-VOLUME EDITION, and the FIRST ILLUSTRATED EDITION [with a frontispiece illustration and a smaller vignette on the engraved title] of each book. This has also been called the First Collected Edition of Austen's works but it is more accurately the First Uniform Edition as each volume was individually issued, between December of 1832 and April of 1833, as part of Bentley's Standard Novel series, numbered 23, 27, 28, and 30 respectively. Only Emma, number 25 in the series is absent here to complete the canon. In October of 1833, Bentley reissued the novels, bound in green cloth with white labels, and sequentially renumbered one through five. Properly considered, this Later Issue would be the First Collected Edition. All four volumes offered here are FIRST PRINTINGS [with the general, engraved, and regular title-pages uniformly dated 1833], FIRST ISSUES [with plain white endpapers], and in Bentley's FIRST BINDING of plum cloth with black spine labels. The lower label of Mansfield Park is absent, and there's some chipping to the labels on Pride and Prejudice, with loss of only the final D in Standard on the lower label. There's some light bubbling to the cloth on Sense and Sensibility, and the ink signature of Jos Pratt in the top right corner of the front board. This is Colonel Joseph Pratt, master of Cabra Castle in Ireland. His signature, as Colonel, Jos, or Joseph Pratt, is present on the front pastedown and/or title-page of Sense and Sensibility and Northanger Abbey/Persuasion. The ink signature of his son and heir, Mervyn Pratt, dated 1863 [the year that Joseph died and Mervyn became master of the castle] is present in "Mansfield Park" and Pride and Prejudice. Additionally, Cabra Castle is written in ink on the front pastedown of each book, apparently in the elder Pratt's hand. As is always the case, the original plum cloth has faded to tan on the spines and some of the boards, but there is virtually NO WEAR to the cloth. Internally, there's some minor offsetting from some of the frontispieces else the books are in near fine condition, and are extremely scarce thus. Published in December of 1832, this is only the THIRD EDITION of Sense and Sensibility, following the first two British editions published by Egerton, and preceding the 1833 First American Edition. It is the SECOND BRITISH EDITION [and THIRD EDITION overall] of Northanger Abbey and Persausaion, preceded only by the 1818 First Edition, and the separate 1832 Carey and Lea Editions of the two titles. It is the FOURTH EDITION of Mansfield Park, preceded only by the 1814 First and 1816 Second Edition, and the American First Edition, published in 1832. And it is the FIFTH EDITION of Pride and Prejudice, published closely on the heels of the American First Edition of 1833, and preceded only by the First, Second, and Third British Editions, published by Egerton between 1814 and 1817. Michael Sadleir in "XIX Fiction" notes that these Austen titles are some of the rarest in the Bentley Standard Novel library and Austen bibliographer David Gilson says that copies in the orignal cloth are "uncommon, particularly so those in good condition." Here are four remarkable survivors, in exceptional matching condition. Gilson D1, D3, D4, D5.

Expertly bound to style in red straight-grained half morocco over contemporary green paper-covered boards, the upper cover with an onlaid contemporary red straight-grained morocco title label, lettered and tooled in gilt, the spine divided into eight compartments by triple fillets, repeat overall decoration in each compartment, original grey/brown paper wrappers to the 1831 issue bound in Third edition, with the additional plate and the title to the first edition bound in. An eye-witness account of travel on the world's second practical railway line, with plates after Bury, "an outstanding architectural designer" (Abbey) and a detailed report of the difficulties overcome during the railways construction. Thomas Bury `a pupil of Augustus Pugin, was the artist responsible for the best-known views of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway. Published as hand-coloured aquatints in paper covers by Ackermann in February 1831 [titled Six Coloured Views of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway, with a plate of the coaches, machines, &c ], Bury's work went through many editions covering a period of about three years. There were seven views in the first edition and thirteen in the second. A reissue appeared in 1832 followed by Spanish and French editions, while the prints were reproduced separately in France and Germany. After re-engraving, new editions appeared in England in 1833 and 1834 ... Ackermann clearly realized the potential of the British and European markets for railway prints as no other work passed through so many editions' (Rees). The present copy includes the first state of one of the two folding plates of carriages and engines: before canopies were added to the lower set of carriages. The view of the interior of the Wapping to Edge Hill tunnel is in a later state (possibly the fifth) dated 1833 and after the removal of the steaming train (the train was a mistake as no train under steam was allowed in the tunnel). The inspiration for the project to build the railway was the success of the Stockton to Darlington rail line and the urgent commercial need for faster links between the docks of Liverpool and the factories of Manchester ("goods have been known to make the transit from New York to Liverpool in less time than from the latter town to Manchester.") The route was proposed in 1824 and, under the direction of George Stephenson and with parliament's blessing, the immense work was completed by 1830: the line being opened to the public on the 15th September of that year. Despite the tragic death of the Liverpool member of parliament Mr. Huskisson (the first fatality attributable to the Railways) and the huge cost of the work (£ 740,000 by 1830), the railway was an immediate popular and financial success. Speeds in excess of 30 m.p.h. were recorded for the 31 mile journey and as the author predicted in the final paragraph "The success of this experiment… has been….so complete, as to justify the anticipation of the speedy introduction of railways throughout the country.." The plates include three plates of the train and rolling stock employed on the railway, and 13 others of views of the railway in operation. Abbey Life 400; Gareth Rees Early Railway Prints (1980) p.21 and see plates 5-9 & 13; Tooley 120. (13 1/4 x 10 7/8 inches). 16 hand-coloured aquatint plates (13 by S.G.Hughes or H.Pyall after T.T.Bury, 3 folding by S.G. Hughes [2 after I. Shaw, 1 unsigned]), extra-illustrated with a cancel title from 1831 issue. (Folding plates with folds reinforced on verso with linen [as issued]).

        Mansfield Park: A Novel

      Richard Bentley, New Burlington Street, London 1833 - FIRST ONE-VOLUME EDITION, FIRST ILLUSTRATED EDITION, and only the Fourth Edition overall after the first two English editions [published in three volumes by Egerton and Murray respectively in 1814 and 1816] and the America edition [published by in two volumes by Carey and Lea in 1832]. Publisher's original plum cloth with black spine labels lettered in gilt. But for a negligible spot or two of discoloration or bubbling to the cloth, and a trifle of foxing to the engraved title-page, this is a Near Fine copy and uncommon thus. The spine is only a fraction of a shade lighter than the boards, which is less fading than I have ever encountered on this binding. Gilson D3.

        Statistica della Provincia di Saluzzo.

      per Domenico Lobetti - Bodoni, 1833 - 1835, Saluzzo, - 2 voll. in-4° (285x220mm), pp. XVI, 470, VIII, (2), 30 (di Appendice), (2); 546, XI, (3, errata), 28 (di Appendice), 16 (di indice alfabetico); cartonatura coeva con titolo in oro entro tasselli in pelle rossa ai dorsi. 2 tabelle statistiche a stampa ripiegate f.t., 2 grandi carte topografiche ripiegate (Provincia di Saluzzo e topografia di Monviso) e 10 vedute in litografia f.t. disegnate e incise da F. Muletti ed impresse dalle officine Festa, Ajello e Doyen, realizzate tra il 1832 e il '34 (Rossana, Castello di Raconigi, Revello, Castello di Verzuolo, Cava di Sarizzo, Cavallermaggiore, Racconigi, Staffarda, Savigliano e la grande veduta di Saluzzo). Bellissimo esemplare in barbe, marginoso e a fogli chiusi. Rara edizione originale di questa vastissima opera, compilata "sul modello delle mirabili descrizioni statistiche del periodo napoleonico" (Einaudi, Saggi bibliogr. e storici, p. 208). Lo studio concerne infatti ogni aspetto della vita sociale ed economica del territorio di Saluzzo, compreso il Monviso ed alcune vallate alpine, fornendo estese informazioni sulla situazione demografica, economica, amministrativa, climatica, ecc., dei territori interessati. L'opera, per la sua rarità, è stata reimpressa in anastatica nel 1979. L'Eandi (1791-1848) fu Sottoprefetto di Saluzzo. Lasciò ancora una dissertazione Sulle Casse di risparmio stabilite nei R. Stati di terraferma, sui loro risultamenti e sui modi di favorirne l'incremento (1844). "L'avvocato Giovanni Eandi, cav. Mauriziano e socio dell'Accademia delle Scienze, fu intendente a Chiavari e poi a Pallanza. lasciò onorata e cara ricordanza, sia per la retta e provvida sua amministrazione, sia per le utili opere pubbliche che promosse. Coprì poi nella Capitale alte cariche. La sua Statistica della provincia di Saluzzo, frutto di lunghe veglie e continue diligenti ricerche, è lavoro. da non soffrire d'essere paragonato che colle migliori monografie di tale genere". (Muletti, Saluzzesi illustri, p. 40: Cat. Einaudi, 1709. Sirugo, n. 1202. Manca al Manno e al Kress. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
