        600 pages of autograph manuscripts, with 12 watercolors and drawings on lung anatomy and physiology

      Paris, circa 1836-1842. Circa 600 Pages of Unpublished Autograph Manuscripts on the Anatomy and Physiology of the Lungs and the Physiology of Respiration, with Twelve Watercolor Paintings by Albert Jacquemart, from an Almost Completely Undocumented Period in Bazin's LifeBazin, Antoine-Pierre-Ernest (1807-78). A collection of autograph manuscripts, drawings and watercolor paintings on the anatomy and physiology of the lungs and the physiology of respiration, as listed below. [Paris, 1836-c. 1842] Various sizes. 1 ms. in original wrappers, torn & chipped; the remaining mss. in original unbound state, some soiling and browning, edges of some leaves a little frayed, a few marginal tears. 5 of the watercolors mounted; the remainder loose. Enclosed in two cloth drop-back boxes. Bazin, the son and grandson of physicians, was born in 1807 in the small town of St. Brice-sous-Bois. He studied medicine in Paris, where he impressed everyone with his brilliance: "named successively a hospital extern and intern, he was taught by Dupuytren, Honore, Rostan, Bricheteau, Delarocque, Maury, Biett, and crowned his internship by obtaining the gold medal at the end of a remarkable examination" (Baudot, p. 176). He received his doctorate in medicine in 1834 with a thesis entitled Recherches sur les lesions de poumon dans les fievres dites essentielles (Researches on lesions of the lung in "essential" fevers), and might then have begun on a career commensurate with his remarkable abilities. However, Bazin was unfortunately possessed of a difficult and overbearing personality, and his "utter lack of tact in dealing with influential colleagues" (Besnier, quoted in Crissy & Parrish, p. 150) caused him to passed over in the agrege examinations of 1835 and 1838, which prevented him from obtaining a teaching post in a university or lycee. To Bazin these failures were so discouraging that he abandoned all further efforts toward obtaining a teaching position, instead spending the next several years in relative poverty and obscurity, struggling to advance his medical career both in private practice and at various hospitals. Bazin also attempted during this time to found two medical periodicals-- l'Institut medical (first issue 1839) and Repertoire des etudes medicales (first issue 1848); however, both of these ventures were almost immediate failures, due largely to Bazin's lack of capital. This difficult period in Bazin's life ended in 1847, when he was prevailed upon to accept a post at the Hopital St. Louis; he remained there until his retirement at age 65, and it is there that he began the brilliant and influential dermatological studies for which he is now known. He constructed an elaborate "diathetic" system of dermatologic thought based on the idea that skin disorders were not diseases as such but only the visible manifestations of a few underlying pathological states; this theory enjoyed wide acceptance in France and Great Britain prior to the rise of the germ theory of disease in the 1870s. Bazin published over a dozen books on dermatological subjects, the most important being his influential Lecons theoriques et cliniques sur les affections cutanees de nature arthritique et dartreuse (1860); these, coupled with his great skills as a clinician and teacher, made him one of the great dermatological authorities of his age. His name survives today in the term "Bazin's disease," an alternative name for erythema induratum (see G-M 4051). Although quite prolific in the years after 1850, when his fortunes were secure, Bazin published almost nothing in the unsettled and virtually undocumented period of his life between 1835 and 1847. A search of the sources available to us, including the online databases, NUC and contemporary obituaries (see below), has turned up references only to the two failed periodicals, his agrege theses (Quels sont les caracteres distinctifs de la contagion et de l'infection [1835] and Determiner ce qu'il faut entendre par maladies lymphatiques [1838]), and two unnamed memoirs on the structure of the lung (1836) and the connection between the spinal cord and spinal nerves (1840), both of which are mentioned only in a footnote to Baudot's obituary (p. 177). However, these twelve "lost" years were a more productive period for Bazin than the record of his publications indicates--the group of unpublished manuscripts and drawings offered here, which date from between 1839 and circa 1842, show that Bazin continued to rework and expand his writings on the lung, hoping to make his name as a specialist in the anatomy and physiology of respiration. Bazin's investigations on the lung are of great interest, particularly since they date from a time when common pulmonary illnesses were beginning to be diagnosed with precision, thanks to Laennec's stethoscope (1819). This manuscript collection is made up of the following: (1) Recherches sur la structure intime du poumon de l'homme et des animaux vertebres, suivis de considerations sur les fonctions et la pathologie de cet organe (Research on the interior structure of the lung in man and vertebrates, followed by thoughts on the functions and pathology of this organ). June 3, 1839. Autograph notebook of 56 pages in folio, extensively revised by the author with erasures, pastings, notes, etc., dedicated to the history and criticism of the opinions of medical authors from antiquity to the nineteenth century, and submitted to the Institut Royal de France, whose stamp appears on the title. Also on the title is a note in the hand of noted French neurologist Marie Jean Pierre Flourens (1794-1867), a commissioner of the Institut: "Mrs. Dumeril, de Blainville, Serres, Flourens: Commissaires." In the introduction to this memoir Bazin explained the origin of his research in this way: "The desire to acquire precise information on the original seat and the development of pulmonary phthisis and asthma directed me to research on the interior structure of the lung. . . ." This and the following memoir may have been written for publication in the Memoires of the Institut; however, Bazin's name does not appear at all in the Memoires' indexes for the period 1836-57, and we have every reason to believe that it is unpublished. (2) The interior structure of the lung in man and vertebrates. Second memoir presented to the Institute. 2 undated autograph notebooks of 15 and 13 pages in folio, with corrections, pastings, etc. as above, representing two parts of the manuscript. "Commissioners Blainville, Flourens, Serres" inscribed in another hand on p. 1 of Part 2. (3) 12 watercolors (from 2 to 5 drawings per page), by Albert Jacquemart (1808-75), dated 1836, representing both gross and fine anatomical structures in the lung and other respiratory apparatus with notes and commentary by Bazin: windpipe of a gazelle injected with mercury; lung of a kestrel and a pigeon; lung of a Muscovy duck; lung of a girl who died at the Hotel-Dieu in March 1836; man, bronchial branches/tubes injected with mercury; bronchial endings of a 4-month old fetus; bronchial endings of a calf's lung; lung of an otter, etc. At least six of the drawings were prepared to illustrate the second part of Bazin's "De la structure du poumon de l'homme et des animaux vertebres" (no. 2); the drawings are referenced in marginal notes in the manuscript. Included with the Jacquemart watercolors are an unsigned watercolor and three black pencil drawings without captions. Jacquemart, a painter of flowers, also worked on the reproduction of subjects in botany, entomology, conchology, and medicine (cf. Benezit VI, p. 51). Color xeroxes of his watercolors are included with this description. (4) Recherches sur la structure intime des organes respiratoires. 40pp. in folio, unbound. Undated, but not earlier than 1841, since a bibliographical citation on the first page refers to a book published in that year. A scholarly review and critique of medical writings on the lung from antiquity to the time of writing; among the authors discussed are Aristotle, Plato, Hippocrates, Galen, Empedocles, Vesalius, Harvey, Malpighi, Willis, Ruysch, Bidloo, Duverney, Haller, John Hunter, Soemmerring and Reisseisen. (5) Breathing apparatus of the lion. Autograph manuscript of 20pp. in folio and in quarto with 5 drawings by the author in pencil and ink: posterior bronchial plexus, anastamosis of the bronchial artery with the pulmonary artery, etc. Numerous corrections by the author. In a paper folder which contains a portion of another manuscript by Bazin entitled "De la structure intime des organes respiratoires des animaux vertebres," and beginning "Il y a presque vingt cinq ans que j'ai co[mmence] cette ?tude. . . ." (It has been 25 years since I began this research. . . ). Right margin of this ms. page trimmed, affecting text. (6) A large collection of notes on lectures and dissections, in a paper folder entitled "Notes sur l'appareil respiratoire" (Notes on the respiratory apparatus). Undated, but 1842 or later. Circa 500 pages in quarto, mostly filed in 42 sub-groups, each with its own folder; there are also several loose unfiled sheets. Most of the sub-groups are devoted to authors: Aristotle, Plato, Galen, Empedocles, Harvey, Aranzio, Malpighi, Lower, Hunter, Cuvier, Laennec, Seymour, Mayo, Tiedeman, Spallanzani, Poli, Bourgery, Milne-Edwards (whom he criticizes for not having been aware of the "rather numerous preparations that I left in the comparative anatomy collections in 1839"), etc. The remaining groups contain dissection notes: procedures used on a very young human embryo; pleurisy; bird autopsies; notes on the breathing apparatus of several mammals (with some sketches). Also included in this document is the manuscript of the first lesson of a zoology course taught by Bazin. All of the materials in (6) were probably written in preparation for various lecture courses taught by Bazin during the 1840s or later; Crissey (p. 151) notes Bazin's habit of opening each year's Lecons with a caustic and contemptuous survey of the work of his predecessors.This collection is among the largest collections of autograph manuscripts by a single author on a medical subject that we have handled in 40 years of trading and it is only one to contain paintings of this quality. Some of the manuscripts described above may have been intended for publication in one or the other of Bazin's failed medical journals, both of which are extraordinarily rare: neither is cited in NUC, or in the OCLC database. Besnier, in his obituary of Bazin, stated that he knew of only one copy of Bazin's Institut medical (at the Bibliotheque nationale de France); he also noted that the later Repertoire des ?tudes medicales ceased publication after only six issues. Baudot, "Le Docteur Bazin, sa vie et ses oeuvres," Arch. gen. med., 7th series, 1 (1879): 175-98. Besnier, "...Eloge de P.-A.-E. Bazin," Annales de dermatologie et de syphilographie 9 (1877-78): 467-79. Crissey & Parrish, Dermatology and Syphilology of the 19th Century (1981) pp. 150-62.

        GRAMMAIRE TURKE: PRÉCÉDÉE D'UN DISCOURS PRÉLIMINAIRE SUR LA LANGUE ET LA LITTÉRATURE DES NATIONS ORIENTALES

      Londres: W.H. Allen, 1836. publisher's blind stamped cloth. 4to. publisher's blind stamped cloth. x, (6), lxxx, 214 pages, 5 lithographs, (2) with errata. First edition of the French translation done by Sarah Davids. A grammar of the Turkish language with a preliminary discourse and Ottoman Turkish excerpts with translations. In the discourse, Davids (1811-1832) argues that the Turks are a separate, honorable, and intelligent race with a beautiful and complex language. Davids' writings were translated into Turkish in 1851, and the historian Bernard Lewis writes that this book, "made the Turks imagine themselves as having a distinct nationality and independence." Also contains five lithographs illustrating excerpts from ancient and modern Turkish texts by the early English lithographer Joseph Netherclift. (see Twyman, Early Lithographed Bookspages 236-239). Netherclift had been producing lithographic work in London since around 1820, and as Twyman states became "the leading producer of lithographed facsimiles in Britain," until he was succeeded by his son in 1855. Multiple tables with French, phonetic Turkish pronunciation, and Turkish script. Wear to head and tail of spine with some small holes to rear hinge. Minor discoloration to boards.

        Römisches Mausoleum Villa Gordiani, auch "Tor de' Schiavi", an der Via Prenestina gelegen, heute Park Villa Gordiani in Rom.

      . Aquarell, über Bleistift, mit schwarzer Tuschlinie umrandet, auf cremefarbenem Velin, rechts unten signiert und datiert "F. Knebel fec 1836". 14,1:20,7 cm. - Farben leicht verblichen und mit kleinen sorgfältigen Restaurierungen.. Franz II Knebel, verwandt mit Franz I Knebel (1789-1822) und Franz Kaisermann (1765-1833), kam bereits als dreizehnjähriger Knabe zu seinem Onkel nach Rom und wurde von Kaisermann ausgebildet und auch adoptiert und sie lebten gemeinsam in einer Wohnung an dem Piazza di Spagna. Kaisermann brachte dem jungen Künstler zwar sehr viel bei, unterband aber eine eigenständige künstlerische Entwicklung. Deshalb trennten sich beide 1829 im Streit und Knebel nahm sich in der Via Lucina 26 in Rom eine eigene Wohnung. Im April 1835 stellte er in seinem Atelier an dem Piazza di Spagna 31, wohin er mit seiner Familie nach dem Tode Kaisermanns gezogen war, Zeichnungen Bartolomeo Pinellis (1781-1835) und Kaisermanns aus. Mit eigenen Arbeiten beschickte er Kunstausstellungen in Mailand (1844), Brüssel (1851) und in Rom (1856, 1858, 1865). Studienreisen führten ihn nach Olevano und mehrmals nach Neapel.

        Grammaire Egyptienne, ou Principes Généraux de l'Écriture Sacrée Égyptienne Appliquée a la Représentation de la Langue Parlée.

      Paris, Firmin Didot Fréres, 1836 (-41). Folio. Entirely uncut in the original printed wrappers. Small label to lower part of spine. Wrappers with a few nicks and tears. A very fine and clean copy preserved in the original state. 5 ff., VIII, xxiij, 555 pp. Lithographed hieroglyphs throughout, some printed in red.Curiously, the front wrapper states "Prèmiere Partie", and the back wrapper that the work was issued in three parts; the bibliographies also state that it appeared in three parts, but the collation of all complete copies correspond exactly to ours, which is undoubtedly complete and does contain the three parts within the present wrappers. It is also not possible for the work to have appeared in three different parts, each with their wrappers, as part two begins on verso of p. 245. Thus, it must be a previously unnoted curiosity - probably due to the scarcity of these original wrappers - that they appeared with "Prémeier Partie" printed on the front, although the volume contains all that was printed (and also all that was intended).. First edition of Champollion's monumental work on Egyptian grammar, the culmination of Champollion's almost lifelong work in early languages and deciphering hieroglyphs. After returning from Egypt in 1830, Champollion began writing on his 'Grammaire', but he died in 1832 without being able to finish the final editing, which was then done by his brother, Jacques-Joseph Champollion. His Grammar and Dictionary of Ancient Egyptian was published posthumously in 1836, laying the foundation for all subsequent discoveries in Egyptology. Champollion himself had high expectations for his work. He is famously quoted for telling his brother: "To be honest, I hope that this will be my calling-card to posterity.""After the first volume of "Monuments de l'Égypte et de la Nubie" came the publication in 1836 of Champollion's almost completed deathbed project, his Egyptian grammar. [...], it was published exactly as it stood in the manuscript, and dedicated by Champollion-Figeac to de Sacy."The Grammar set out Champollion's theory and classification of hieroglyphic signs, with their values and their equivalents in hieratic; in addition, it showed how the different parts of speech, including verb conjugations and noun declensions, were represented in hieroglyphic signs, with illustrative phrases taken from the monuments". (Robinson, The Revolutionary Life of Jean-Francois Champollion).As explained in the Preface to the present work, publishing the original meticulous manuscript was a monumental effort, and required that all the different alphabetic languages (French, Latin, Greek, Coptic, etc) were set in the usual way in type, blank spaces being left for the hieroglyphs. The typesetting was then transferred to lithographic plates where the hieroglyphs were engraved and then each page, including type and hieroglyphs, reprinted lithographically. This was the first time such a technique was used in France.Champollion was an extraordinary philologist, who, by the age of sixteen, besides Greek and Latin, mastered six ancient Middle Eastern languages, among these Coptic, the knowledge of which, unlike that of Egyptian, was never lost. As the first, Champollion realized the connection between the Coptic and the Egyptian language, and was able to identify many of the Egyptian words on the Rosetta Stone, as he could read them with their Coptic equivalents. He was the first to believe that both Demotic and Hieratic represented symbols, and not sounds as earlier presumed. After that he quickly realized that each single hieroglyph could represent a sign, and he began compiling a hieroglyphic alphabet. When publishing his famous letter to Mr. Dacier (1822), he presented the fact that the hieroglyphs represented sounds as well as concepts, according to context. Champollion is thus the constructor of our present code of the hieroglyphic alphabet. "Further study enabled him to discover the values of a number of syllabic hieroglyphic signs, and to recognize the use of hieroglyphs as determinatives. In cases where the Greek text supplied him with the meaning of hieroglyphs of which he did not know the phonetic values, his knowledge of Coptic enabled him to suggest values which he found subsequently to be substantially correct. Further reference to determinatives and the importance of parallel passages and texts will be made later on in his work. Between 1822-24 CHAMPOLLION worked incessantly, and was enabled to modify much of his earlier views, and to develop his Alphabet, -and he evolved some rudimentary principles of Egyptian Grammar..." (Wallis Budge, The Rosetta Stone in the British Museum, pp. 224-25). ""Known as the founder of Egyptology, Champollion embodied in this work the result of his efforts to decipher Egyptian hieroglyphs. By equations of demotic and hieroglyphic characters, he was able to identify native Egyptian names and to demonstrate the relationship between the ancient Egyptian and Coptic languages. Although he was unable to decipher the Rosetta Stone inscription, Champollion's work clearly established the alphabetic character of Egyptian hieroglyphic writing" (The Philip Mills Arnold Semeiology Collection 13).Brunet I: 1780Wilbour, p. 151

The manager of the house, a German named Frederick Hornung, apparently forged bills of exchange without the knowledge of his employers, three Argentine brothers. After the failure of a British house, Thwaites and Company, and after the retention of money in the Chilean branch, the Lezica Brothers had to raise money. Originally Hartung procured the signatures of a number of people, including Thwaites; but when persons declined, he began to forge names on bills of exchange--both the drawer's and drawee's names--in order to prevent bankruptcy. He thought this would need to be done for only a short time, but he became involved until the total sum owed the market was over one and a half million pesos." (Reber).

Folding engraved pocket map with full period hand-colouring (sheet size: 16 x 19 5/8 inches), wth a second folding sheet of accompanying letterpress text within a type-ornament border, entitled "Travellers Guide and Statistical View of the United States." (sheet size: 18 x 22 inches). (Small repaired tears to both sheets). Original dark blue raon-backed printed paper-covered boards (extremities scuffed). A very rare early travellers' guide to the United States. "The map is from a discarded plate of H. Phelps' U.S. [1832]... The index is largely stolen from Mitchell's Traveller's Guide index sheet for 1832, however the information on roads and distances is taken from someone else ... The map has the characteristic oval portrait of Washington, reengraved ... from the Phelps issue. Webster put this together from Phelps, Mitchell and (?) and it is very scarce - I can find no references to it" (Rumsey). Rumsey 3450.

        Nachfolge Christi. Ein Gebet-und Erbauungsbuch fur gebildete Katholische Christen. Mit Anwendungen und Betarchtungen von Archer, Bordoni (et al.)

      Leipzig: J.J. Weber, 1836. Large 8vo. viii, 368 pp. With an engraved frontispiece after Raphael, engraved title-page printed in red and hand-colored in blue, and 3 engraved plates after Raphael, Overbeck, and Leonardo da Vinci (see below). ADDED: pasted on verso of frontispiece is a lithograph by Franz Hanfstaengl, of Munich, of "Christus vor Jerusalem" by W. Hole. Contemporary German dark brown morocco, profusely gilt and inlaid: in centers a Romaneque cathedral window, surrounded by elaborate ornamental frames build of small and large tools, inlaid in red, outer boarders composed of an leafy ornamental roll, smooth spine gilt and lettered direct, all edges gilt, comb-marbled pastedowns (front flyleaf removed; covers bowed and somewhat worn at extremities; frontipiece with small worm-hole in blank margin; plates and opposing leaves foxed). Overall a good copy with some faults and priced correctly An elaborately gold-tooled German binding, possibly executed in Leipzig (or Munich?), exhibiting elements of the "cathedral" style of bookbinding that was then in fashion in France and England, but found much less frequently in Germany. Indeed, this is a curious and very unusual German example in which decidedly "Victorian" elements can be seen in the design and tooling, presenting a great deal of charm and exuberance. * A contemporary review of this edition was published in "Der Katholik" (Speyer, 1837): "This edition of the excellent book of the followers of Jesus Christ deserves to have a special display because of special splendor and beauty which stands out, and is thus excellently suited as souvenirs for many Christians. The title page is finely illuminated, but the real adornment of the book, which is printed on fine paper with care and taste, can be seen in the four steel engravings: the Cross (after Raphael), Jesus blessing the Children (after Overbeck), the Lord's Supper (after Leonardo da Vinci), and the Transfiguration of Christ (after Raphael). The work has just been published and costs 2 Thaler" (SOURCE: Der Katholik: eine religiose Zeitschrift, 26 Band. 17 Jahr. III-IV Heft. p. 30). * A surprising addition to the ensemble is the lithograph by the studio of Franz Hanfstaengl (1804-1877) who in 1833 founded a lithography studio in Munich; it was to become a major operation, from which lithographic portraits and reproduction of art were produced by the hundreds of thousands (SOURCE: Historisches Lexikon Bayerns). The Kunstverlag Franz Hanfstaengl continued operation until 1980.

        Piscatorial Reminiscences and Gleanings by An Old Angler and Bibliopolist. To which is added A Catalogue of Books on Angling

      London: William Pickering, 1836. First edition. Tipped in at front free endpaper is a separately printed, folding "Table of the Approximate Weights of Fish according to their Lengths ? by Joseph Gwilt, sold by Eaton of Crooked Lane". Lithographic frontispiece and numerous vignettes. vii, 255, [40] pp. 1 vols. 12mo. Original green cloth, printed spine label (dated 1836). Some rubbing at spine ends, label somewhat rubbed and soiled. Very good plus. The Birth of Angling Bibliography More "the result of paste and scissors" (Westwood & Satchell) than a coherent text, but redeemed by the groundbreaking bibliography of angling books prepared by Pickering, who states in the Catalogue that it "is formed upon Sir Henry Ellis's corrected copy of the list, which he contributed to the British Bibliographer in 1811, and which he kindly lent for the purpose.".

Rara obra del poeta y periodista afrancesado vasco Pablo de Xérica, o Jérica, y Costa nacido en Vitoria en 1781, uno de los escritores vascos olvidados; influenciado por las ideas revolucionarias francesas comenzó a escribir en el Correo de Vitoria lo que le llevaría al destierro y posteriormente al exilio en Francia, de donde volvería durante el trienio liberal tomando de nuevo la pluma para escribir fábulas y poesías anticlericales y eróticas, por las que fue perseguido y finalmente exiliado, muriendo en la localidad francesa de Cagnotte en 1841. Su sobrino Ramón publicó en 1869 un compendio de su poesía, no está en la Biblioteca Nacional Española.

En 1817 Rougeron de París le había editado Ensayos poéticos, de la caul existe una traducción francesa en la Biblioteca Nacional de Madrid. Finalmente, el servicio de publicaciones de la Diputación de Alava editó en 1987 un pequeño libro de poemas de Xérica con una biografía preparada por Esteban Gutiérrez quien la había copiado, sin descaro, de un artículo de Emilio Apraiz aparecido en Vida Vasca de 1954. Éste es, en síntesis, el recuerdo que nos queda de Pablo de Xérica. Por lo visto, la censura tiene, como se suele decir, un largo brazo que llega hasta nuestros días. Humorismo, anticlericalismo, erotismo ismos bastante alejados de los políticamente correctos). PAÍS VASCO

      London: Richard Bentley 1836, 1st Edition. () xv,(2),312; viii,321pp. Very good. Small Octavo. 2 volumes. Bound in contemporary half morocco and marbled boards. Top edge gilt. Marbled endpapers. Gilt spine with the titles and decoration in six panels. Half title in volume one. Frontispiece in each volume. One other single page illustration. One full page map. Without the list of plates which is normal. 19th century armourial bookplate in each volume. A very attractive clean copy. Arctic Biblio. 8708. The first edition bound in two volumes is much scarcer than the later issue of the book bound in one. King's narrative is considerablely rarer than Back's account of their expedition down the Great Fish River. The second issue bound in one volume with an new title page was obviously bound up by King from the left over sheets and was to take advantage of the interest in the Franklin expedition. We believe this is the first book to show and illustration of a marmot..

      Londres: W.H. Allen, 1836. publisher's blind stamped cloth. 4to. publisher's blind stamped cloth. x, (6), lxxx, 214 pages, 5 lithographs, (2) with errata. First edition of the French translation done by Sarah Davids. A grammar of the Turkish language with a preliminary discourse and Ottoman Turkish excerpts with translations. In the discourse, Davids (1811-1832) argues that the Turks are a separate, honorable, and intelligent race with a beautiful and complex language. Davids' writings were translated into Turkish in 1851, and the historian Bernard Lewis writes that this book, "made the Turks imagine themselves as having a distinct nationality and independence." Also contains five lithographs illustrating excerpts from ancient and modern Turkish texts by the early English lithographer Joseph Netherclift. (see Twyman, Early Lithographed Bookspages 236-239). Netherclift had been producing lithographic work in London since around 1820, and as Twyman states became "the leading producer of lithographed facsimiles in Britain," until he was succeeded by his son in 1855. Multiple tables with French, phonetic Turkish pronunciation, and Turkish script. Wear to head and tail of spine with some small holes to rear hinge. Minor discoloration to boards.

        Lettre autographe signée à Adolphe Guéroult.

      [La Châtre, mars 1836]. - 8vo. 8 pp. Exceptionnelle et longue lettre de Sand à son jeune ami Guéroult (1810-1872). - George Sand, à peine séparée de son époux Casimir Dudevant, encore éloignée de ses jeunes enfants Maurice et Solange, livre iciune passionnante facette de ses visions philosophiques, religieuses, politiques et spirituelle à son ami, fervent adepte des doctrines saint-simoniennes. - A la fin de cette année 1836, Sand rencontrera un jeune pianiste ; Frédéric Chopin. "Mon ami, j'admire beaucoup vos perplexités à propos du titre que vous devez me donner. Il me semble que je m'appelle Georges et que je suis votre ami, ou votre amie, comme vous voudrez. Je n'entends rien aux compliments. Si je n'avais pas pour vous estime, attachement et confiance, je ne vous aurais pas témoigné confiance, estime et attachement. Après cela, je ne sais plus ce qui peut vous gêner, et vous prie de vous souvenir que je ne suis pas bégueule. Ainsi appelez moi comme il vous plaira, mais écrivez moi souventpour me parler de vous et de mes mioches. Merci mille fois de l'amitié que vous leur accordez. Ils n'en savent pas le prix maintenant et Solange pourra bien vous payer de quelque coup de pied ou de quelque impertinence, mais plus tard elle échangera de système, et quant à moi, j'acquitterai sa dette d'affection et de reconnaissance tant que je vivrai. Ils sortiront tous deux aux vacances de Pâques, et vous serez à même de voir Maurice chez Buloz; emmenez-le quelques fois promener avec vous pour décharger Buloz d'un si lourd fardeau et rendez moi bon compte de la conduite de Monsieur mon fils. Morigénez le paternellement. C'est un bon diable qui vous comprendra si vous lui parlez raison. Solange est impayable avec son poignard dans le cœur et dans l'estomac. Je pense que ce dernier organe est celui qui joue le plus grand rôle dans sa vie. Elle découchera je crois pour les fêtes de Pâques, et ma tante de l'Elysée-Bourbon s'en chargera car il faut qu'elle est par égard pour les moeurs, son domicile chez des femmes. Serez-vous assez bon pour conduire son frère auprès d'elle quand il voudra et pour le ramener chez Buloz ensuite ou au moins pour surveiller ses allées et venues, de manière à ce qu'il ne soit qu'avec des personnes sûres qui ne le perdront pas en chemin? Je compte sur vous, sur Papet, sur Boucoiran, et sur Buloz [.]".

      Tipografia Tomassini 1836 Nuove scoperte fatte nella luna dal celebre Herschel, Foligno 1836 Tipografia Tomassini (imprimatur 20 aprile 1836), opuscolo in 8° cm. 22x15 di pp. 15 (1). The Great Moon Hoax ("la grande burla della Luna"), pubblicato in italiano come Nuove scoperte fatte nella luna dal celebre Herschel, è il nome con cui è rimasta nota una serie di sei articoli pubblicata nel quotidiano New York Sun a partire dal 25 agosto 1835, sulla presunta scoperta della vita e della civiltà sulla Luna. Tali scoperte furono falsamente attribuite a sir John Herschel, forse il più noto astronomo del suo tempo. Negli intenti dell'anonimo autore - poi rivelatosi Richard Adams Locke - doveva presumibilmente trattarsi di una satira, che tuttavia fu presa per vera. Gli articoli suscitarono tale scalpore da essere tradotti in varie lingue e pubblicati all'estero. La bufala si sparse a macchia d'olio: commenti entusiasti venivano riportati su molti giornali, relazioni delle scoperte apparvero nei bollettini delle più celebri accademie scientifiche europee. Fra le vittime illustri ci fu François Arago, che verso la fine del 1835 ne pubblicò un estratto sul bollettino dell'Accademia delle scienze francese, suscitando molta curiosità ma anche molte polemiche. In Italia vide la luce, nell'aprile 1836, l'opuscolo anonimo intitolato Delle scoperte fatte nella luna del dottor Giovanni Herschel (traduzione dal francese della 104ª edizione fatta a Parigi nel marzo 1836), un estratto dei primi quattro articoli di quella che sarebbe poi stata chiamata ?la grande beffa lunare?. Della copia in nostro possesso, stampata in Foligno, non se ne conosce altro esemplare. L'opuscolo è considerato dagli amanti e cultori uno dei primi racconti di fantascienza.
