         Première Babylone ... Sémiramis la Grande, traduit d'un manuscrit hiéroglyphique égyptien.

      P., imp. de H. Dupuy, 1834, in 8°, de CXLIII-514 pp. (dont 4ff. chiffrés par des symboles après la p.384), titre orné, figures in t. et une grande figure à pl. page, demi-maroquin bun à coins, t. dorée, rel. moderne. Envoi de l'auteur en grande partie effacé. Qq. rousseurs sinon bel exemplaire. Rarissime ouvrage non mis dans le commerce et tiré à petit nombre. ¶ Caillet n°3067: "Livre mystérieux, précédé d'une grande étude sur le symbolisme notamment sur celui des cathédrales... d'aucuns l'apprécient: curieuse élucubration d'un fou littéraire." - P. Dujols: "Ouvrage maçonnique des plus étranges et des plus mystérieux. L'auteur prétend qu'il est la traduction d'un manuscrit hiéroglyphique d'un prêtre de Memphis, et qui lui aurait été confié par un illustre orientaliste (lisez: initié M:.). Ce manuscrit, voile de la tradition maç:. était intitulé Sémiramis Trismégiste. S'inspirant des anciens Maçons Constructeurs, Desjardins, dans une admirable préface symbolique intitulée la Cathédrale, présent eaux adeptes ce livre fermé pour les profanes." "Ce dialogue du Mystère des Trois Voix, dit l'auteur p.501, prouve et constate combien d'efforts et de sacrifices inouïs auraient été tentés par le jeune Ninyas afin d'échapper aux conséquences terribles de son personnage de Prêtre de la Mort, qu'il aurait revêtu dans Memphis, au pied du Dieu rémunérateur et vengeur. Personnage irrésistible et fatal, mais de la dernière fatalité, selon le code secret des initiations et la consécration de nos saint Mystères qu'il ne m'est pas permis de découvrir ici, ni par la parole, ni par caractères confiés au papyrus! LES INITIES ME COMPRENNENT." Desjardins fut vers 1830, le grand chef des sociétés secrètes, le véritable maître absolu du pouvoir, et, dit Francis Lacombe, le président en expectative de la future république; "Se dressant du haut des cités babyloniennes, continue son biographe, il parlait devant nous la langue des Mages et de Chaldée, perdue depuis quatre mille ans et providentiellement retrouvée par lui au XIX) siècle, pour la stupéfaction du genre humain." L'ouvrage est rempli de reproductions pittoresques d'anciens textes hébreux, coptes, chaldéens, égyptiens, éthiopiens etc... orné d'un titre orné très symbolique et d'une gravure finale figurant l'initié parvenu à la suprême lumière. ¶ Brunet les fous littéraires p. 56: "Cette production plus qu'étrange n'a pas été mise dans le commerce, l'érudition et l'extravagance y débordent..." - Blavier les fous littéraires p.59: "publication... d'un luxe inattendu... vaste drame... composé en partie en caractères hébreux, persans, arabes, chaldéens etc.. Un livre rare mais dont l'appartenance stricte à la classe des productions que nous étudions est discutable."

        "Allgemeine Bemerkungen". Eigenh. Aufzeichnungen mit U.

      Offenbach, 3. II. 1834.. 1 S. 4to.. Vorwort zu seinem Verzeichnis von Musikmanuskripten Mozarts: "Die hierin thematisch verzeichneten Manuscripte von W. A. Mozart, geb. 27. 1. 1756 und gestorben 5. 12. 1791, enthalten diejenigen seiner Compositionen welche ich besitze und welche ich theils im Jahr 1799 von der Wittwe Mozart, theils späterhin von anderen brieflich als mein nunmehriges Eigenthum an mich gebracht habe. Diese Manuscripte sind nun in der Ordnungsfolge hier verzeichnet, wie sie vom Jahr 1764 anfangend, bis zum Jahr 1784 gehen, von da an Mozart seinen bekannten thematischen Katalog geschrieben und bis an's Ende seines Lebens fortgesetzt hat, und von welchen darin aufgezeichneten Werken ich ebenfalls im Jahr 1799 diejenigen käuflich an mich brachte, welche damals noch vorhanden waren. Da ich einige dieser Manuscripte inzwischen verkauft habe, und dies namentlich an Herrn A. Stumpff in London, und da mir auch etliche abhanden gekommen sind, so habe ich bey denjenigen Manuscripten, welche ich gegenwärtig nicht mehr besitze, ein mit rother Tinte bemerktes [Zeichen] angeführt; so wie ich auch diejenigen Manuscripte, welche meines Wissens bereits gedruckt worden sind, mit einem rothen Strich unterstrichen habe. Diese beyden letzteren Zeichen gelten auch für den gedruckten Katalog. Noch bemerke ich: daß ich diejenigen Manuscripte, bey welchen das Jahr nicht genau angegeben werden kann, ihrem Decennium nach eingetragen habe, somit alle in die 1760ger Jahre gehörigen in die 176-, und die in die 1770er Jahre gehörigen unter 177-. Auch in die 1780er gehörige kommen noch einige mit 178- bezeichnet vor. Die in der 3ten Colonne bemerkte Zahl befindet sich, einer früheren durch Gleissner vorgenommenen Ordnungseintheilung zufolge, auf den Manuscripten." - J. A. Andre, ein begabter Pianist und Sohn des Offenbacher Musikverlagsgründers Johann Andre, kaufte im Jahre 1800 "in Wien für 3150 Gulden den handschriftlichen Nachlaß W. A. Mozarts, nachdem Haydn ihn auf die Notlage der Witwe aufmerksam gemacht haben soll und der Verlag Breitkopf & Härtel trotz ausgiebiger Bedenkzeit den Kauf abgelehnt hatte [...] Dank der Vorarbeiten durch Abbe M. Stadler konnte G. N. v. Nissen, Constanze Mozarts zweiter Mann, im Jahre 1798 ein Verzeichnis anlegen, das im Druck erst 1828 als Anhang zu seiner Mozart-Biographie erschien, aber schon handschriftlich als Grundlage für Verlagsverhandlungen von Bedeutung war. 1805 und 1828 gab Andre den wichtigsten Vorläufer zum Köchelverzeichnis heraus: 'W. A. Mozarts thematischer Katalog [...] nebst einem erläuternden Vorbericht von A. Andre'. 1841 veröffentlichte er ein von seinem Schüler Heinrich Henkel (1822-99) aufgestelltes Verzeichnis der nach mancherlei Abgängen noch in seinem Besitz befindlichen Original-Manuskripte Mozarts, um sie gegen Höchstangebot zu verkaufen. Nach seinem Tode wurden die noch nicht veräußerten Handschriften durch Verlosung unter die Erben verteilt [...] Sein bleibendes musikgeschichtliches Verdienst liegt in der Betreuung der Werke Mozarts, für die nicht nur verlagstechnische Erwägungen und Freude am Besitz geltend gemacht werden können, sondern mehr noch die Erkenntnis von der epochalen Bedeutung des Meisters" (MGG I, 459f.). - Im rechten Rand mit stärkeren, bis in den Text reichenden Einrissen bzw. Ausfransungen.

      Fair. 1834. Third Printing. Softcover. In 1832, settler William Davis built a dam across Indian Creek to power his mill near present-day Earlville and Sheridan, Illinois, which infuriated the local Potawatami as the fish they relied on could no longer swim upstream.

        Autograph letter signed ("John Franklin").

      [London], 31. VII. 1834.. 4to. 3 pp.. Fine, long letter by the great explorer (who would famously perish in his attempt to chart the Northwest Passage) to G. W. Crowe, the English consul at Patras, about the war in Greece and Kolokotronis's trial for treason: "I have within these few days received very gratifying letters from my wife though of late as late as 5th May she was preparing to avail herself of the first convenient conveyance to Greece [...] I have written fully to my wife in the letter committed to your kind care which I shall be obliged by your keeping for her if she be not with you or sending to her if she be in Greece, and I will write if possible another shorter one which I will thank you to send to the care of Mr. Wilkinson [British Consul] at Syra in case she should be still at that Island. [...] I have now but little time or inclination to enter into the busy & changeable field of our Home Politicks, as far as I can gather the present Cabinet will be allowed to carry the half measures which they have proposed for the security of Ireland. Their continuance in office does not appear to be grounded on any very firm basis, and it is generally admitted they have lost a good head by the retirement of Lord Grey. The result of the trial of Colocotroni & Calliopoli is disgraceful to any mind conversant with British justice. Allowing the evidence to have been defective and the Judges to have been divided in opinion could any conscience reconcile the judgment of death upon them. The King has done wisely in commuting their punishment and I trust that one of the first acts of his assuming the Government will be the granting them pardon. As for de Wrede if he can be proved guilty & sent to the Galleys he will have richly deserved it. I am glad the other conspirators have been set free [...]. I trust the Bavarian troops have been taught circumspection & the danger of treating an enemy too lightly by the transactions in Maina [...] My books I hear arrived safe but cannot as yet be presented while the King remains at Argos [...]". - Franklin and his crew left Greece in December 1833, and on his return to England was made a Knight Commander of the Guelphic order of Hanover. Franklin's wife was the accomplished traveler Lady Jane Franklin (1792-1875), whom he married in 1828. After the long absences necessitated by John's service in the Mediterranean, she accompanied him to Tasmania and became a popular philanthropist, activist and explorer. Our letter discusses Lady Franklin's quarantine in the lazaretto, or quarantine station, on the Aegean island of Syra (or Syros), one of the locations travelers between the Near East and Europe were forced to wait out a quarantine period as outbreaks of the plague were still prevalent. "The danger of treating an enemy too lightly by the transactions in Maina," undoubtedly refers to the peninsula of Maina, which fought valiantly during the war of independence but violently insisted on retaining local control after the war. This struggle culminated in the assassination of the Greek head of state Ioannis Kapodistrias in 1831 after he ordered the imprisonment of the "bey" or chieftain of Maina. - A fascinating letter detailing the political situation in Greece and England as well as the nature of travel in the 1830s. Folded and with some very minor paper loss resulting from the wax seal tear and affecting a few words. Some minor paper restoration is evident on the address leaf. Overall in very good condition.

        An Historical and Statistical Account of New South Wales both as a Penal Settlement and as a British Colony.

      London 1834 - Two volumes, octavo, with a folding map; a very good copy in original green cloth with paper labels on spines. First edition. Lang, a Presbyterian minister, arrived in the colony in 1823. He was possessed of enormous energy, and "pushed his way to power at once", as H.M. Green says, with " a great wave of popularity and dissension foaming at his bows and leaving a wide wake behind him". This is an attack on the emancipists, among others, by Wentworth's major rival, and is Lang's most important work. Although Lang shared with Wentworth the desire to encourage immigration and implement self-government, he in fact went further in wanting independence. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Exemplar proveniente da Biblioteca do Duque de Palmela, e com ex-libris oleográfico do próprio sobre as folhas de rosto. Inocêncio VII: "Edição de que só se tiraram 325 exemplares e que não foi exposta à venda pública. Os que aparecem no mercado em razão das causas inevitáveis que aí conduzem os livros usados, têm sido vendidos por preços variáveis de 720 até 1:600 réis. Eis aqui o que a propósito destes trabalhos diz um dos biógrafos já mencionados: «O duque de Palmela, presidindo á camara dos Senadores (e igualmente à dos Pares) honrou o sistema parlamentar, e honrou se a si mesmo, pela dignidade e apurado tato, pela imparcialidade e prudência com que dirigia as discussões, missão difícil numa época em que os partidos procuravam excitar as paixões públicas em favor das suas ideias e interesses, e quando estavam separados, não só pelas crenças, mas pelo sangue ainda fresco das lutas civis. «O duque de Palmela não era dotado da paixão, do fogo, do estilo ornado e sumptuoso que distingue os oradores nos tempos revolucionários; mas possuía em grau eminente as qualidades mais sólidas do debater, eloquência própria das épocas de paz, e de progresso pausado e gradual, quando os Catilinas não ameaçam invadir Roma à frente de uma população infrene, nem os gansos sagrados grasnam sinistramente no capitólio. «A sua argumentação era lógica, e ao mesmo tempo fecunda, a sua exposição lucida e concisa, e sabia optimamente adaptar a força das razões á gravidade dos assumptos, ou fosse em discursos preparados no gabinete, ou no calor do improviso. «Indiferente na tribuna aos gozos do amor-próprio, o seu intuito era fazer triunfar as suas ideias, e levar a convicção ao espirito dos seus adversários, e não seduzi-los ou deslumbra-los pelos encantos da sua palavra. As suas opiniões em economia política e em administração iam além das de alguns dos seus adversários, que se proclamavam progressistas por excelência. Ninguém tratou com maior clareza e ciência a questão dos direitos diferenciais, combatendo os preconceitos do sistema protector, que naquele tempo se julgava panaceia infalível para todos os males, e a origem de todos os nossos progressos. Tratando das verdadeiras causas da decadência do nosso comércio, expôs perfeitamente a questão, etc»" Location/localizacao: Sala 2

        Mappa Selenographica.

      Berlin, S. Schropp and Comp., 1834 - Large lithographed lunar map (1030 x 1030 mm), comprising four linen-backed quadrants mounted on twelve folding panels; bound in contemporary dark blue moiré-patterned cloth, labelled in gilt 'Beer & Mädler Map of Moon' on upper cover, spine worn. £9500First edition, rare, of the most important and detailed lunar map up to the appearance of Schmidt's map of 1878. The Beer and Mädler map was on a scale of 38 inches to the lunar diameter, and was based on observations made using a 9.5 cm refractor at Beer's private observatory in Berlin.'The Beer and Mädler map has the honor of being the first large-scale moon map to be based on precise micrometric measurements. Beer was a banker and amateur lunar observer, possessing a fine Fraunhofer refractor. Mädler, the major figure in the enterprise, was an astronomer who teamed with Beer to measure the position of every lunar feature from a large number of fundamental control points . The map was without question the most influential lunar publication of the century . It is also the earliest, and still the finest, lithographed lunar map.'The Beer and Mädler map is crammed with detail that is almost impossible to appreciate with the naked eye; under magnification, an incredible richness is revealed' (The face of the moon n 16).'Subsidiary craters are given Roman letters, capitals for those whose selenographical coordinates had been determined, lower case letters for those whose map locations were eye estimates only. Subsidiary mountain peaks or blocks, points on grater rimes with measured heights, mare ridges and rilles are given Greek letters, again with capitals for those points with measured coordinates . There are 3000 lettered features in all, 1551 being craters, 1449 hills, rilles etc.' (Ewen Whitaker, Mapping and naming the Moon, p 127.)Accompanying the map is a four-page quarto prospectus in French, 'Prospectus d'une carte de la lune' by Beer and Mädler, in which they explain the history of the map, the techniques of observation and measurement, the scale used, etc.Provenance: Royal Institution, with discreet stamp on verso of map and on title of prospectus

        A new discovery being an original, unpublished journal kept by Millard Fillmore, signed six times by him and once by his wife Caroline. Fillmore complains of " Whig Treachery" and tries to stave off the impending bank crisis, which would lead to the Panic of 1837 by securing loans from the likes of John Jacob Astor

      Buffalo, New York, 1834-1860. 6.5" x 8". "Manuscript journal, signed ""Millard Fillmore,"" and ""Fillmore,"" in text and again initialed ""M.F."" four times, 6.5"" x 8"", 51 leaves, Buffalo (among other locales), September 25, 1834 to August 16, 1836, and October 1860, bound in marbled boards and leather spine. The first portion (1834-1836) is a journal of correspondence, kept primarily in Fillmore's hand, summarizing various legal matters with which he was involved, as well as an account book. The journal also features Fillmore's wife, Caroline C. Fillmore, who adds an Autograph Note Signed ""C. C. Fillmore,"" to the front pastedown. Expertly rebound with the original boards and spine, light soiling and scattered foxing, else very good to fine condition. The account book details the workings of Fillmore's legal practice during his early years in politics as he transitioned from the Anti-Masonic Party to the Whig Party, which nominated its first national candidates in the election of 1836. The early Whig party was marked by factional strife, which frustrated Fillmore to no end. Although many of his notes concern ongoing legal and financial matters, politics occasionally comes up. In New York State, the nascent Whig Party was roundly defeated in the elections for the New York assembly by the highly-organized Democrats. On November 5, 1835, only a day after the election, Fillmore lamented the Whig drubbing at the polls, noting the result in Buffalo won handily by the Democratic candidate: ""Political: Barker Election to the Assembly by Whig Treachery & money."" Fearing that Whig disorganization would further undermine its efforts on the national stage the following year, Fillmore hoped for a ""Union upon Harrison or no body"" Sadly, although the Whigs did nominate Harrison for President that December, it also nominated three other candidates, including Daniel Webster, Hugh Lawson White and Willie Person Morgan as well. In November 1836, Van Buren handily defeated them all, garnering more popular and electoral votes than all the Whig candidates combined. Despite the off-season defeat of his local candidate, Fillmore wrote that he was ""indifferent as to Result"" as there was ""plenty of business."" Ironically, one reason Fillmore was enjoying ""plenty of business,"" was because the economy was in decline. Beginning in 1836, a series of business failures plagued Buffalo, bringing a good deal of work to Fillmore's law practice. Part of his journal also documents a series of trips that Fillmore undertook to obtain a loan to stave off the impending financial crisis, which met with little success, but documents the early stages of what would become known as the Panic of 1837. Starting in Washington in May 1836 he subsequently traveled to Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York where he even applied personally to John Jacob Astor ""Ans. To theirs of 21. Had seen Robinson: and much depended on Duer's success in England where he had gone for money $1,000,000 to be pd. Into T. Co. on a new stock 13 June but mostly promised. Nothing at present of Astor, Bard would help but can do nothing"" Hartford and Boston yielded similar disappointing results. Writing from ""Boston June 1836... Arrived here from N[ew]. Haven on Wed Evg. Saw Henry A. Perkins, Esq. Cashier of the Hartford Bank & Elisha Colt Esq Cash. of the Exchange Bank at Hartford. Hard times. Colt thought money might be loaned to brokers when times easier etc."" Andrew Jackson's ""Specie Circular"" of 1836, which demanded that western land could only be purchased with gold and silver coin, had drained the eastern banks of their specie reserves, forcing them to scale back lending severely, while spurious banks issued mountains of paper currency of questionable value. Meanwhile, the Bank of England had raised its interest rates three to five percent, enough to dampen international lending. This move forced banks in the United States to raise their rates and within two months the price of cotton had dropped by 25% setting off a string of bank failures that would engulf the nation into a business depression that lasted until 1843. (Fillmore and the Whigs also benefited from this development, as Martin Van Buren bore the brunt of the blame for the economic distress and would go down in defeat in the Election of 1840 to Harrison). The balance of the book contains newspaper clippings compiled by Fillmore's second wife, Caroline C. Fillmore who writes on the front pastedown of the journal: ""Account from the papers of the visit of the Prince of Wales to N.Y. Ect?" Oct[to]b[er] 1860 - Mrs. C. C. Fillmore"" The visit of the Prince of Wales, apart from the bitterly-contented presidential election of 1860 which brought Abraham Lincoln to the White House, was the other major news item that fall. The Prince of Wales at the time was Albert Edward (1841-1910) who would ascend the British throne as Edward VII in 1901. The journal, which is apparently unpublished, offers a fresh look at Fillmore's early legal and political careers, filling in previously unknown details of his life. An exhaustive search of records shows no similar journal of a President or future President ever being offered publically. Originally, and until just a short time ago, the entire journal was obscured by the newspaper accounts that Caroline Fillmore had pasted on every page. Had it not been for the eagle eyes of a knowledgeable historian who saw some writing beneath the newsprint, Fillmore's words would have been hidden for the ages. A spectacular Presidential item and a great story."

Titre, date et tomaison en dores sur le dos a cinq nerfs. Couverture protegee avec jaquette protective en plastique transparente. 3 Ex-libris PV, EAP, a neuville. / Published anonymously, the novel is loosely autobigraphical, relating in part to the author's romantic involvement with the wife of Victor Hugo (whose works are advertised at the back of both volumes). In full modern leather by Conil-Septier, with marbled endpapers, edges gilt; original wrappers -- very faintly soiled -- bound in. Fine copies. Volume one inscribed by Saint-Beuve.. Le veritable objet de ce livre est l'analyse d'un penchant, d'une passion, d'un vice meme, et de tout le cote de l'ame que ce vice domine, et auquel il donne le ton, du cote languissant, oisif, attachant, secret et prive, mysterieux et furtif, reveur jusqu'a la subtilite, tendre jusqu'a la mollesse, voluptueux enfin. De la, ce titre de Volupte, qui a l'inconvenient toutefois de ne pas s'offrir de lui-meme dans le juste sens, et de faire naitre a l'idee quelque chose de plus attrayant qu'il ne convient. Mais ce titre, ayant ete d'abord publie un peu a la legere, n'a pu etre ensuite retire.[wikisource].
