        Sociedad Económica de La Rioja Castellana. Construcción del camino Logroño-Santander para la exportación de vino. Tramo Logroño-Fuenmayor ].

      La Rioja, 1801-1833. - ENVIRON 200 DOCUMENTS MANUSCRITS (approximativement 175 groupés en liasses et plus d'une vingtaine séparés). En feuilles sans reliure. Précieuse réunion de documents issus de la Société Economique de La Rioja, relatifs à la construction d'une grande route entre Logroño et Santander pour faciliter l'exportation du vin. La construction de cette voie était l'objectif principal de la Société depuis sa création en 1783, lorsque les récoltants de 52 communes de la Rioja se réunirent pour étudier ensemble les moyens d'améliorer leur résultats économiques. " ( ) Uno de los fines mas dignos y mas loables que se propuso en los principios de su instalacion [la Sociedad Rioana], fue hacer lo más extensiva posible la circulación de los licores, y demás productos del suelo de Rioja, y con particular aquellos, y para ello trató de caminos que le facilitasen á los puertos de la costa de Castilla, emprendiendo desde luego el que debía tener comunicación con Santander como mas inmediato ( ). La Rioja por medio de este tráfico, extrayendo sus licores y demás frutos sobrantes fuera de la Península, mudaría de aspecto, adquiriendo nuevos capitales, que podría luego emplear, en la misma industria ù otras analógas a su territorio, con que convidan su situación y su fecundidad" (Oración). Les travaux commencèrent en 1790 lorsqu'un décret royal désigna la Société comme responsable de la construction du chemin et de ses embranchements. Malheureusement, la construction de la route se heurta à de nombreux obstacles politiques, administratifs et économiques qui retardèrent son exécution pendant plusieurs dizaines d'années. La plupart des documents présentés ici, qui couvrent une période de plus de 30 ans, sont adressés ou ont été émis par Martin José Fernández de Navarrete, commissaire des travaux exécutés dans la ville de Fuenmayor par la Société, dont il était le vice-directeur. Hydrographe, navigateur et historien, auteur d'ouvrages bien connus sur la bibliographie maritime espagnole ou la vie de Cervantes, ces documents montrent que Fernández de Navarrete poursuivit aussi inlassablement l'objectif de la Société: la divulgation du nom de La Rioja et de ses vins.

        Rivers of Life

      1833 - FORLONG, J.G.R. Rivers of Life, or Sources and Streams of the Faiths of Man in All Lands; Showing the Evolution of Faiths from the Rudest Symbolisms to the Latest Spiritual Developments. London: Bernard Quaritch, 1883. Three volumes. Quarto, original green cloth rebacked with original spines laid down, patterned endpapers. $2600.First edition of this comprehensive, cross-cultural study of world religions, illustrated with 17 plates, two color folding maps, over 300 in-text illustrations, a large, folding, "synoptical table of gods, god-ideas and many features which all faiths have more or less in common" and an extremely large (21 by 96 inches) folding, linen-backed, color chart displaying the global evolution of religious thought.Major-General Forlong was not only a military engineer but also a life-long, comparative scholar of world religions. He knew seven different languages and traveled extensively in India. He produced two magisterial works: Faiths of Man, a Cyclopaedia of Religions (1906) and this work in 1883. Forlong traces the development of the world's great faiths from such ancient origins as the worship of trees, serpents, ancestors and heavenly bodies. He treats a wide variety of esoteric and mystical matters, including: the connection between pyramids in Egypt and earthen mounds in Kentucky; the influence of myths about Vishnu on the symbolism found in Christian catacombs; parallels between Babylonian and Israelite flood myths; the link between Assyrian and British crowns; the relationship of Roman sun worship to the doctrine of Roman Catholic transubstantiation; and water worship among peoples from the primitive Celts to the Cibola tribes of New Mexico. Includes the first appendix, a large (7-1/2 by 2-1/4 feet) chart of faith streams, issued (according to the Table of Contents) either folded (as here, in a separate case as Volume III) or on rollers.

        Warrant for the Reception of Thomas Iveson in the Bethel Lunatic Hospital in the City of Norwich

      No Place: No Publisher, 1833. Four page manuscript document from 1833, the warrant for the reception of Thomas Iveson in the Bethel Lunatic Asylum in the city of Norwich, signed by both William IV and Lord Melbourne (then Home Secretary, later Prime Minister) and with a wax seal. Slightly creased from old folds, some coloured paper residue to head of final page where it has been removed from an album, light staining to gutter edge with a couple of small holes, but generally fairly bright. The warrant tells us that Iveson was tried at a gaol delivery session for the borough of Kings Lynn on the 9th of July for murder but was acquitted on the grounds of insanity. He was ordered by the court to be held in custody at the borough gaol pending the King's pleasure as required. A warrant was then later issued directing him to be removed from the gaol to the Guardians Asylum for Lunatic Paupers, St Clements, Norwich, but he is then ordered to be removed to the Bethel Lunatic Hospital in the parish of St. Peter of Mancroft where he is to be kept in custody. The Rev. Thomas Iveson murdered his father, the Rev. Arthur Iveson of South Lynn, shooting him with a pistol. First Edition. Unbound. Good+. 4to. Manuscript.

        FLORES POETICI. THE FLORIST'S MANUAL: DESIGNED AS AN INTRODUCTION TO VEGETABLE PHYSIOLOGY AND SYSTEMATIC BOTANY, FOR CULTIVATORS OF FLOWERS. WITH MORE THAN EIGHTY BEAUTIFULLY COLOURED ENGRAVINGS OF POETIC FLOWERS

      Boston & New York: Munroe and Francis & Charles S. Francis, 1833. 288pp. including seventy-three handcolored engravings. Later pebbled cloth boards and modern morocco backstrip, leather label. Corners worn. One signature moderately foxed (affecting four illustrations). Very good. A treatise on botany, with interesting early American color plates. In the introduction, Bourne states that his purpose is to provide his readers with a text that includes a discussion of the scientific elements of plant botany that will also be accessible to the casual reader. The list that appears under the running title, "Index to Colored Flowers," is misleading. Though 124 plants are noted, many in the same class are represented by a single, general illustration. According to the titlepage, Bourne was editor of the LITERARY MAGAZINE. Not in Bennett or McGrath. An attractive, and rare, American botanical, with interesting and early color plates. OCLC 5226972.

        Finden's Illustrations of the Life and Works of Lord Byron.

      London: John Murray,, 1833. With Original and Selected Information on the Subjects of the Engravings. 3 volumes, octavo. Contemporary burgundy half morocco, spine gilt-tooled in compartments with titles direct, gilt rules to sides, marbled endpapers and edges. With engraved half titles and title pages, and engraved plates throughout, 129 in all. Illustrated bookplate of Robert J Hayhurst to front pastedown of volume one. Some light spotting to a few early and late plates, but on the whole remarkably fresh, rubbing to the corners, a sound smart set in excellent condition. First book edition, attractively bound. "It was William and Edward Finden's illustrations to Byron that substantially enhanced the status of their work. Following his death in Greece in 1824, their engravings sensitively conveyed to a wide contemporary audience images of Byron's life and work. Initially engaged by Byron's publisher, John Murray, to engrave a portrait of Byron at the age of nineteen by the Scottish painter George Sanders, in J. C. Hobhouse's possession, as the frontispiece to the first edition of Thomas Moore's Life of Byron (1830), William Finden went on to work for Murray on a popular edition of Moore's Life and Works of Byron which was first published in monthly parts. At the same time he conceived his own project to publish with Murray a series of landscape illustrations to Byron. Initially he gained the support of Byron's loyal friend J. C. Hobhouse, who agreed to write a text to accompany the illustrations and provided Finden with a list of subjects for illustration. Finden lost no time in commissioning drawings from Turner and other artists, but then ran into difficulties with Hobhouse, whose protective feelings towards his friend's reputation prevented him from ever publishing his recollections of Byron. Having made a heavy financial commitment towards this, his first publishing venture, and having also secured investment from Murray, Finden pressed on and began negotiations with the publisher Charles Tilt. Finden's Landscape Illustrations to the Life and Works of Byron finally appeared in fourteen monthly parts, with both Murray's and Tilt's names on the paper wrappers, from January 1832... Both the Illustrations and Moore's Life and Works created a great sensation, and led to further projects to engrave the life and works of other poets, and other works of a popular kind such as Finden's Gallery of the Graces (1832?4) after works by Sir Edwin Landseer and A. E. Chalon; Finden's Byron Beauties (1834); Finden's Portraits of the Female Aristocracy of the Court of Queen Victoria (1838?9), after portraits by Chalon, Hayter, and others; and Finden's Tableaux of National Character, Beauty, and Costume, edited by Mrs A. [Priscilla Maden] Watts." (ODNB.)

        Romances Chansons, offertes à Son Altesse Royale Monsieur le Duc d'Orléans Prince Royal, écrites par Charles Postelle à Paris.

      In-8 ; plein veau glacé aubergine, plats décorés à la plaque gravée d'une grande composition romantique entourée de décors dorés de rocaille et filets dorés, dos à quatre nerfs plats décoré de roulettes et fleurons dorés, triple filet doré d'intérieur, étui bordé (reliure de l'époque, circa 1833) ; (86) ff., les 5 derniers blancs, comportant le titre, 60 romances ou chansons, (2) ff. de table et (18) ff. de musique notée, le tout délicatement calligraphié recto seul, avec des titres à grandes lettres fantaisie décorées, texte souvent décoré d'ornements ou encadrements romantiques. Cet ouvrage à probablement été offert au roi Louis-Philippe duc d'Orléans en 1832, la première chanson s'appelle "Les Fleurs. Stances et Bouquet offerts à la Reine le jour de sa Fête. Par les Grenadiers du 3e Bon de la 6e Légion de la Garde nationale de Paris. 1832". Coiffes très discrètement restaurées, exemplaire très frais. Un grand nombre de ces chansons sont de Louis Festeau, chansonnier, poète, compositeur (1793-1869). En 1831, il fait partie de la Lice Chansonnière. Une bonne partie des chansons présentes, seront éditées en 1834 dans le premier recueil de chansons qu'il a publié, "Les Ephémères", au point que l'on peut se demander si Charles Postelle ne serait pas simplement un pseudonyme utilisé pour offrir ses chansons au Roi.

      1833. 8vo. 1 p. With autogr. address and red wax seal on reverse of second leaf of bifolium. To Monsieur Raynouard. Perhaps relating to de Laborde's abortive "Essais de gravure", a specimen of which appeared in 1833. "Madame" will pass on to Raynouard "le manuscrit du premier volume d'un ouvrage auquel je travaille depuis longtemps". It is "un travail qui en est si peu digne et qui en a tant besoin". He has "assez conservé le souvenir" of Raynouard's "ancienne bonté pour espérer que vous voudrez bien y consacrer quelques heures". Raynouard will recall his "inhabileté de redaction". Explains why he has resisted the urge to renounce any idea of publication, and repeats his request for Raynouard's assistance. - Good, on aged and lightly creased paper.

        Eigenh. Manuskript "Kaiser Heinrich im Spessartwald" mit U. O. O. u. D.

      1833. 3 ½ SS. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt. 8vo. 8 strophiges Gedicht "für den Musenalmanach von Schwab und Chamisso": "Als Kaiser Heinrich im Spessartwald / Flüchtig einst irrte in fremder Gestalt, / Da kehrte bei Nacht u. bei Nebelschein / in eine Waldhütt' er zagend ein, / Fand dort beisammen beim Lichtes Schimmer / Ein Mütterlein u. einen Greis im Zimmer / ‚Eilt, bittet er, mir einen Führer zu geben. / Uebers Gebirge, es gilt mein Leben' [...]". - Der "Deutsche Musenalmanach" wurde 1833 von Adelbert von Chamisso und Gustav Schwab übernommen und erschien bis 1841. - Der aus einem alten baltischen Adelsgeschlecht stammende Ungern-Sternberg wuchs in einer von der Herrnhuter Brüdergemeine geprägten Umgebung auf, studierte seit 1826 Kameralwissenschaften in Dorpat und erhielt 1830 in St. Petersburg von der Zarin Alexandra ein Stipendium zur Ausbildung als Maler. Vor der Cholera zunächst nach Dresden geflohen, hielt er sich 1831-34 am Hof der Großherzogin Stephanie von Baden in Mannheim auf und wandte sich nach dem Erfolg seiner ersten Novelle "Die Zerissenen" (1832) der Schriftstellerei zu. 1834-41 lebte Ungern-Sternberg in Weimar, ging dann nach Berlin, wo er u.a. im Kreis um Karl August Varnhagen von Ense verkehrte, und arbeitete zeitweise auch als Korrespondent der "Kreuzzeitung". Im Auftrag des russischen Gesandten war Ungern-Sternberg Berichterstatter bei der Frankfurter Nationalversammlung und beim Erfurter Parlament, lebte seit 1850 in Dresden und starb auf dem Gut seines Schwagers.

        A Catalogue of the Library Collected by Miss Richardson Currer at Eshton Hall, Yorkshire.

      Large 8vo, xii,501pp., one of 100 copies, steel-engraved frontispiece showing Eshton Hall and 3 steel-engraved plates of the library and its surroundings, cont. half morocco by J. Mackenzie (bookbinder to the King), upper hinge broken but still holding, spine gilt, marbled paper sides, corners a little bumped, uncut.Frances Mary Richardson Currer (1785-1861) was England's earliest female bibliophile and was described by Dibdin as the "head of all female book collectors in Europe.". Currer inherited the library of her great grandfather, Richard Richardson (1663-1741), botanist and antiquary, and with the additions made to this Currer built up a sizeable collection of 15,000 volumes. The catalogue is arranged in a number of classes, including religion, arts, natural science, topography, literature and history. Most of the books in her library were auctioned at Sotheby's in 1862, realising £6,000.

        Histoire naturelle de Buffon Mammifères Oiseaux [Atlas]

      Paris, Pourrat Frères, [?1833-1834]. In three volumes. 8vo. Two title pages, two frontispiece portraits, 327 plates on 325 sheets. Uniform early 19th century embossed calf. Spines rich gilt with floral vignettes, and titles. Gilt monogram on front boards. Marbled endpapers.l These sets of fine, hand-coloured plates form part of Lesson's edition of the "Buffon". "Buffon" is in this case regarded as a noun, meaning: book on zoology (in the first half of the 19th century the great majority of French natural history works were modelled after, or based on the works of Buffon, and it was almost obligatory to mention his name in the book title). René Primevère Lesson (1794-1849), who had already published some of the finest illustrated books on birds, starts this edition by closely following Buffon's 18th century original. It is characterized by a superior rendering of the plates, with Prêtre, Traviés, and Oudart (arguably among the best natural history illustrators of the 19th century) as principal artists. Following the classic Buffon plates are many new plates. These are from the "Complément ou histoire naturelle des animaux rares découvertes par les naturalistes et les voyageurs depuis la mort de Buffon", including quite a number of Australian mammals and birds, as well as the New Zealand kiwi. Nissen (697), with a query, lists 200 plates, and lists the slightly later edition published by Pourrat and Roret as having 206 plates, viz. 58 mammals and 148 birds. This copy, however, has 128 mammal plates on 126 sheets, and 199 bird plates, far more than in either the "Oeuvres complètes", or the "Complément", which, according to Nissen (2462), should have 122 plates (1828-1830 ed.), or 181 plates (1838-1841 ed.). Given the contemporary bindings and the similar style, this is an unrecorded edition, rather than a mixed edition. Not counted in our total are portraits of Buffon and Lesson, three folded maps of the (then known) world, and plain plates of a furnace, a telescope, a burning glass, and a map of the Auvergne, as well as three plain plates of sperm, and two hand-coloured plates of humans, which were all in imitation of the original Buffon edition. Plate numbering is erratic, and often absent. For instance, in the Mammalia section there are 27 numbers used twice, and seven numbers used three times, 16 plates without a number, and six bis plates. In the mammals, 43 plates have no number, while 27 numbers remained unused. Initials of J.V. on tails of spines and the same initials embossed in gilt on front panels. We strongly believe this to be the naturalist Jules Verraux, who worked as "naturaliste voyageur" for the Museum d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris. He travelled to South Africa and Asia to collect specimens. He is considered one of the greatest ornithologists of his time, and many birds, including an eagle, have been named after him by zoologists such as Lesson, Bonaparte, and Grandidier. Three plates in duplicate (second copies not counted). A few plates toned or spotted, the Auvergne-map torn with about 25% missing, the title pages of oiseaux and mammifères interchanged, otherwise a very good set, of what possibly is a very rare edition. Compare Nissen ZBI, 697; 2462.

        Zoological Illustrations, or Original Figures and Descriptions of new, rare, or interesting animals, selected chiefly from the classes of Ornithology, Entomology, and Conchology, and arranged on the principles of Cuvier and other modern Zoologists

      Baldwin, Cradock, and Joy, London 1833 - Six volumes, octavo, 318 handcoloured plates, an excellent set in uniform contemporary green half morocco over marbled boards, all edges gilt. A particularly attractive set of both the first and second series of this beautiful work of natural history; all published, and rare in such fine original condition. The importance of this work to Australian and Pacific natural history cannot be overestimated: several plates feature Australian specimens - particularly birds - figured for the first time, while many of the illustrations are derived from the collections of important figures such as Sir Joseph Banks, Elizabeth Bligh, Allan Cunningham and John Byron. Peculiarly attractive is a plate in the second series, depicting the Jamaican "Two-Toothed Disk Snail", from an original sketch by John Lewin, a friend of the Swainson family.Swainson's friend William Elford Leach, head of zoology at the British Museum, first encouraged him to experiment with lithography so as to make drawings of animals suitable for colouring. Thus began the publication of this, his first major work, in which all of the plates are by the author; Swainson was the first illustrator and naturalist to use lithography in this way, achieving a fresh and admirable style.The work deals with specimens from all around the globe, with many from Java, the East Indies, and the Americas (particularly Brazil, visited by Swainson in 1816). Of great interest are the many plates illustrating specimens from the South Seas. Swainson was particularly good on shells, although he relied on the sometimes poor recording of earlier collectors, and was sometimes not able to be more specific than simply giving their habitat as "South Seas". There are, nonetheless, three illustrations of Australian shells, the "New Holland Mitre", the "Mitra melaniana", and the "Scaphella maculata", the last from the collection of Elizabeth Bligh. Several other South Seas shells are from the collection of Sir Joseph Banks, including the "Mitra vitatta", about which Swainson comments that "this superb shell is figured from a matchless specimen brought home by that illustrious and lamented patron of science, the late Sir J. Banks, from the Pacific Ocean".The work is rich with images of Australian birds, with lovely depictions of the "Azure Kingsfisher", "Red-shouldered Parakeet", "Turcosine Parrakeet", "Blue-fronted Parrakeet", and the "Tabuan, or King Parrakeet" (drawn by Swainson from a live specimen). He includes an image of the "White-collared Honeysucker", with the interesting note that "Lewin's figure is so excellent, that I should not again have represented this bird, had not the plate been prepared previous to the publication of his work". Perhaps the most personal note accompanies his depiction of "Swainson's, or Blue-bellied Lory" (Trichoglossus Swainsoni), where he comments on his "pleasure at seeing our name affixed to this charming bird, and in clearing up its history. As a child we well remember our unwearied delight at seeing its figure in White's Voyage".Several Australian birds are depicted for the first time. This interesting group, which we list here with Swainson's original scientific designations, includes the "Yellow-tufted Honeysucker" (Melliphaga auricomis); "Red-Collared Parakeet" (Psittacus Barabandii), from a skin in the possession of Mr Leadbeater; the "Keel-billed Flycatcher" (Muscipeta carinata), "from a specimen belonging to Mr. Brookes; since which, I have received two others from New Holland"; and the so-called "New Holland variety" of the "White-eyed Warbler" (Sylvia annulosa), described by George Caley. Further, of great significance are the two birds noticed from specimens collected by Allan Cunningham, the famous natural historian and His Majesty's Botanist in New South Wales, who sent the specimens to Swainson: the "Black & White Robin" (Petroica bicolor) and the "Golden-eared Parrakeet" (Leptolophus auricomis). The latter had only recently been pictured in Edward Lear's [Attributes: Hard Cover]
