Front paste-down with evidence of bookplate removal. Ffep detached. A penned note to the ffep, dated 1836 & under an indeciperable signature, states: "Reprinted under the auspices of Charles Kirk Patrick Sharpe & James Maidment Esquires." Overall, Very Good. Item #47463 An English translation of "La Rettorica delle Puttan", published anonymously in 1643, now universally attributed to Ferrante Pallavicino. Pallavicino was notorious for his literary critiques of the Pope, and none was more notorious than La Retorica delle Puttane (The Rhetoric of Whores), which Edward Muir described as a 'scandalous anti-Jesuit work', which 'demonstrates why Pallavicino was the only Italian author of his epoch capable of a coherent vision that integrated satire, skepticism, and naturalistic morality.' La Retorica is written in the form of a dialogue between an aged prostitute and her naive apprentice. The older woman is sick, poor, and miserable because, she explains, she 'did not know to stop at rhetoric, wanting to go on t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Klimt, Gustav, Maler (1862-1918).
An seine Mutter Anna Rosalia Klimt, geb. Finster (1836-1915), kurz nach dem Tod des Vaters und des Bruders: "[...] Die Umstände zwingen mich, noch einen Tag länger hier zu bleiben als ich mir vorgenommen habe, ich komme daher erst Samstag, d. 14. d. nach Hause. Ich habe ferner dem Grafen Auersperg um Geld geschrieben und ihn gebeten dasselbe an deine Adresse zu schicken. ob dieses schon geschehen ist, könntest du mir eigentlich durch einige Zeilen mittheilen. Ich wäre schon gerne zu Hause [...]". - Seit dem Tod von Klimts Vater Ernst im Alter von 59 Jahren am 13. Juli und seinem Bruder Ernst am 9. Dezember 1892 unterstützte Gustav Klimt seine Mutter und die Familie seines Bruders. Zudem er übernahm er die Vormundschaft für seine Nichte Helene. In diesem Zusammenhang steht der vorliegende Brief, in dem er seiner Mutter berichtet, er habe den Grafen Auersperg um finanzielle Hilfe gebeten. Klimt hielt sich im Januar 1893 im ungarischen Totis (heute Tata) auf, um das Bild "Zuschauerraum des Theaters im Schloss Esterházy" zu malen, mit dem er im März 1893 die Silbermedaille der Künstlerhausausstellung gewann.

Royal 8vo. 9-1/8" x 6-5/8" An English translation of "La Rettorica delle Puttan", published anonymously in 1643, now universally attributed to Ferrante Pallavicino. Pallavicino was notorious for his literary critiques of the Pope, and none was more notorious than La Retorica delle Puttane (The Rhetoric of Whores), which Edward Muir described as a 'scandalous anti-Jesuit work', which 'demonstrates why Pallavicino was the only Italian author of his epoch capable of a coherent vision that integrated satire, skepticism, and naturalistic morality.' La Retorica is written in the form of a dialogue between an aged prostitute and her naive apprentice. The older woman is sick, poor, and miserable because, she explains, she 'did not know to stop at rhetoric, wanting … [Click Below for Full Description]

The talents and energy of Augustus Welby Pugin are well represented in this collection of his works on medieval architecture and design. Pugin worked so hard as an architect, artist, writer, and promoter of Roman Catholic religion and Gothic style, which he held to be inseparably united, that he suffered a complete mental collapse and died at the age of forty. The final plate of the first work in this volume is an allegorical depiction of a Gothic-style church being demolished while its precious statues, woodwork, and decorations are burned in the street in front of two hideous new buildings.

MCKENNEY, Thomas L. (1785-1859) and James HALL (1793-1868)
Philadelphia: F.W. Greenough, 1836. Hand-coloured lithograph. A fine image from McKenney and Hall's 'Indian Tribes of North America': `One of the most important [works] ever published on the American Indians' (Field),` a landmark in American culture' (Horan) and an invaluable contemporary record of a vanished way of life.A dignified and extremely influential Potawatomi chief, Me-Te-A was a prominent spokesman for his tribe at the 1821 council that convened in Washington to negotiate the 1821 Treaty of Chicago, in which the Potawatomi relinquished much of their land in Michigan to the federal government. In accordance with his belief in the importance of education, he sent several boys from his tribe to the Fort Wayne Indian agent in 1827, who enrolled them in the Choctaw Academy in Kentucky. The Potawatomi were closely associated with the Chippewa and Ottawa tribes and inhabited the Northeastern region of the United States.McKenney and Hall's 'Indian Tribes of North America' has long been renowned for its faithful portraits of Native Americans. The portraits are largely based on paintings by the artist Charles Bird King, who was employed by the War Department to paint the Indian delegates visiting Washington D.C., forming the basis of the War Department's Indian Gallery. Most of King's original paintings were subsequently destroyed in a fire at the Smithsonian, and their appearance in McKenney and Hall's magnificent work is thus our only record of the likenesses of many of the most prominent Indian leaders of the nineteenth century.

Baudry's monogram to title. Binding professionally refurbished with judicious repairs to corners, spine sunned, binding slightly sprung, old marks and abrasions to covers, rear free endpaper neatly excised, a few gatherings proud, title page and prelims a little soiled, a few old annotations at p. 57 (crossing through the reference to the Aboriginal spear-thrower or woomera).

"An excellent life of Cook superior in both accuracy and in personal details to that of Kippis. Contains some valuable bibliographic material" (Holmes). Young was pastor to a Presbyterian community at Whitby from 1806 to 1848 and first looked into Cook's life when he was working on his A Picture of Whitby and its Environs (1824). He is probably best known as the author of Scriptural Geology (1838) in which he attacked the theories of Lyell and the pre-Adamites, remaining convinced that his geological enquiries "did 'not contradict but confirm the sacred scripture'" (ODNB).

Luigi ROSSINI (Ravenna 1790 - Roma 1875)
1836. veduta della città tratta dal "Gli Archi Trionfali Onorarii e Funebri degli Antichi Romani Sparsi per tutta Italia", rara opera del Rossini, pubblicata quale settima parte del grande corpus grafico dell'architetto ravennate sulle antichità romane, incentrata suglia archi trionfali e funerari eretti dagli imperatori romani. View of the city taken from "Gli Archi Trionfali Onorarii e Funebri degli Antichi Romani Sparsi per tutta Italia", printed for the author in 1836. Luigi Rossini was a master engraver who produced over one thousand plates of buildings, ruins, gardens and monuments. His career coincided with a period of great archeological activity. His etchings of Rome followed Piranesi's example, and reported the latest excavations to an avidly interested European audience. This volume was published as the seventh part of Rossini's grand opus of engravings of ancient Roman antiquities, and concentrates specifically on triumphal and funerary arches. Half of the engravings are exquisite views of the arches themselves, with the remaining plates providing more detailed study of the bas-relief decoration of the arches. All of the major arches in Rome are engraved as well as the magnificent examples in Trieste, Rimini, Fano, Benevento, Aosta, Susa, Perugia, Pola, Carsoli, Spello, Verona, Spoleto, Pompeii and Ancona. Copperplate, in very good conditions. Rare.
