        SECRETARIA DE JUSTICIA Y NEGOCIOS ECLESIASTICOS. EL EXMO. SR. PRESIDENTE INTERINO DE LA REPUBLICA MEXICANA SE HA SERVIDO DIRIGIRME EL DECRETO QUE SIGUE...ERIGIR UN OBISPADO EN LAS DOS CALIFORNIAS...

      Mexico, 1836. Broadside, 11 3/4 x 8 1/2 inches, on a folded folio sheet. Contemporary manuscript correction to one word of text, contemporary manuscript notes in upper and lower margin showing transmittal of the document, signed by Amado de la Vega. Two pertinent passages underscored in red pencil. Very good. In a half calf and cloth folding box, spine gilt. Of the highest importance in the religious history of California, this decree provides for the establishment of the first bishopric in California. This decree came on the heels of the secularization of the California missions, which had been the foundation of religious organization there. The procedures for establishing a separate diocese and appointing a new bishop are given, the bishop to be chosen by the government based on the recommendation of the cabildo metropolitano and proposed to the Pope. The government would grant an annual stipend of 6000 pesos to fund the bishopric, which would also have at its disposal monies from the Pious Fund. The decree was issued by Mexican President Jose Justo Corro, and bears the printed signature of Joaquin de Iturbide. We are unable to locate any copies of this decree on OCLC. Rare and important.

        Cheret, Jules - Quinquina Dubonnet.

      DE BELLE EPOQUE NODIGT UIT VOOR EEN APERATIEFReclame Affiche ?? ?Quinquina Dubonnet?', lithografie ontworpen door Jules Chéret (1836-1932), gedrukt door Chaix te Parijs in 1896. Afmetingen: 125 x 89 cm. Chéret was de eerste die kleurenaffiches maakte, levendige ontwerpen voor cabaret, variété en theater zoals Olympia, Folies Bergères en Moulin Rouge. Later breidde hij zijn werk uit naar het maken van advertenties voor allerlei producten. Hij wordt gezien als de vader van de moderne lithografie en vader van de reclame affiche. Chéret maakte verschillende ontwerpen voor Quinquina Dubonnet, alle met een mooie jonge vrouw en een witte kat. Deze kat is een compliment aan mevrouw Dubonnet, wiens eigen kat in het bedrijfslogo was verwerkt. Hier zien we de jonge vrouw met het glas in haar hand, uitnodigen voor een aperitief. Met aandacht voor beeld in plaats van tekst, bracht Chéret een revolutie teweeg in de manier waarop posters werden vorm-gegeven. Hij meende dat een affiche niet noodzakelijkerwijs een product moest tonen, het was slechts van belang dat het bij de kijker een positieve reactie genereerde. Met zijn grote affiches met afbeeldingen van vrijdenkende dames, zette hij aan tot de emancipatie van de vrouw. Vrouwen werden vóór Chéret meestal afgebeeld als prostituee, of als puritein. Zijn zgn. ?Chrérettes?' waren geen van beide. Het werkte merkbaar bevrijdend voor de vrouwen van Parijs, die nu decolletés mochten dragen en konden roken in het openbaar. Vandaag de dag behoort Chéret tot de meest verzamelde kunstenaars uit de Belle Epoque. Prijs: ?2.450,- (incl. lijst, excl. BTW/VAT).

        Sydney - after Mesnard, 1838.

      PANORAMA OF SYDNEY FROM THE RAREST OF ALL FRENCH PACIFIC VOYAGE ACCOUNTS?Vue de Sydney et l?entrée de la Rivière de Paramatta (1ere et 2eme feuille)?. Two lithographs by Thierry and Sabatier after Theodore Mesnard. From the Atlas to the Voyage autour du Monde sur la fregate Venus pendant les anne?es 1836-1839 (plates 63 and 64). Published in Paris, 1842. With original hand colouring. Size (each) approx. 20 x 44 cm.Under the cover of scientific research, the French Restoration rivived the tradition of great discoveries. The expedition under the command of admiral Du Petit-Thouars of the frigate Venus, searched for ports of call or territories to conquer. Mesnard a naval cadet, was the artist on board of the Venus. The French expedition visited Sydney for two weeks in November 1838. The voyage caused a stir in British circles around the world, as it was rumoured that it intended to claim New Zealand as a colony.The view of Sydney is from ta point on the harbour north-east of Pinchgut, shown as a rocky outcrop in centre foreground. At the extreme left is Garden Island and the spire of St James Church appears above Mrs Macquaries Point. Beyond is the entrance to Parramatta River, with Goat Island front right, and the Venus sailing in the foreground.The locals called Pinchgut Mat-te-wan-ye, the Europeans first called it Rock Island. Later hewn down, reconstructed and renamed Fort Denison, but in the imagined world of convict Sydney, always called Pinchgut. It was the location of supposed dark deeds and generator of cheerfully black urban myths. Visions of the remnants of a man called Morgan, strung up on a gibbet and swinging in the breeze, his decayed remains intended to act as an exemple to others. Comdemned to hang for murder, when asked for any last words, he is supposed to have calmly surveyed the scene and remarked ?you have here indeed a beautiful harbour.?Literature: "Sydney Vistas - panoramic views 1788-1995", catalogue to the exhibition at the Focus Gallery, Museum of Sydney (1995), no. 10. Price (for the pair): ?2.450,-.

        Hauptmomente aus dem Leben Sr. Majestät Franz I. Kaisers von Oesterreich.

      Vienna, Lithographisches Institut, (1833-1836). - Series of 21 lithographs, ca. 700 x 500 mm each. A complete set of this "extremely popular lithographic series" (cf. Telesko, p. 163) which was first announced in September 1831: originally, a total of twenty prints showing "principal moments" from the life of Emperor Franz II (I) were planned, to be issued at monthly or bi-monthly intervals. Even at this point early versions of the first and second plate were available, and the third would be published in October (cf. Wiener Zeitung 214 [29 Sept. 1831], p. 1214). From 1833 onwards, the title "Hauptmomente" was used (instead of the previous "Lebensmomente" or simply "Momente"), demonstrating that the present set was issued after this point. In what must have been a departure from the artists' original plan, the set was completed after Franz's death with two plates showing the Emperor on his death-bed, bidding his family farewell (the 20th leaf) and his burial in the crypt of the Augustinerkirche (the 21st and final leaf). Hoechle, the illustrator, died but months after Emperor Franz, and he is said to have sketched the latter scene on the spot and finished the drawing as one of his very last works. In commemoration, the lithographer Wolf added a portrait of his late colleage at the picture's far right, with his sketching portfolio under his arm. The original watercolours, measuring but a quarter of the lithographs' size, were part of the Imperial Fideikomissbibliothek until the early 20th century and now repose in the Albertina (cf. Huber-Frischeis, p. 472f.). - "Hoechle's suite offers a selection from the principal events in the life of the emperor, a mixture of ceremonial events (crownings), acts of charity, battles, triumphal entries, encounters with other monarchs, and homages by the estates [.] Wolf's series was instrumental in shaping the posthumous public image of the ruler by creating a canonical epic in pictures" (cf. Telesko, p. 191). - Dust- and waterstained, edges and margins limp and frayed, some tears (occasionally touching the caption). Rarely encountered complete with all plates, as here: only three incomplete sets traced in the last decades' auction records. Wurzbach IX, 91. Huber-Frischeis/Knieling/Valenta, Die Privatbibliothek Kaiser Franz' I. von Österreich 1784-1835 (2015), p. 472-483. Telesko, Geschichtsraum Österreich I, p. 163, 191 & passim.

        L'ingénieux hidalgo Don Quichotte de la Manche

      - Dubochet et Cie, Paris 1836 - 1840, In-8 (17,5x25,5cm), 744pp. et 758pp., relié. - Edizione originale tradotto da Louis Viardot e illustrato da Tony Johannot prima estrazione. Due testate stampate su Cina, due frontespizi incisi e 800 miniature grandi in-text. Come spesso, il secondo volume del 1840. Questa funzione è in realtà abbastanza comune nel settore dell'editoria, anche se abbiamo difficoltà a capire come l'editor è stato in grado di mescolare volumi dell'edizione 1836 che del 1840, a meno che 2 piste sono stati stabiliti simultaneamente. Binding semi antico dolore nero. Indietro con false nervi decorati con grassi e magri reti, ruote e testa coda. Titolo e il volume numero dorato. Tutto relativamente fresco, con molto poco foxing, concentrata su alcuni passaggi, tra cui la prefazione. Alcuni fogli ingialliti nel Volume I. Nel prologo Volume I, marrone tracce margini interni di un nastro di carta (segnalibro) che è stato portato via su 3 fogli, da fading. Buona copia, un buon pareggio. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale traduite par Louis Viardot et illustrée par Tony Johannot en premier tirage. Deux frontispices imprimés sur Chine, deux pages de titre gravées, et 800 grandes vignettes in-texte. Comme très souvent, le second volume est de 1840. Cette particularité est en effet assez commune à l'édition, même si on s'explique mal comment l'éditeur a pu mélanger des tomes du tirage de 1836 à celui de 1840, à moins que les 2 tirages furent établis en même temps, ce qui est plus probable (il s'agirait donc du même tirage, mais avec une page de titre de relais). Reliure en demi chagrin noir d'époque. Dos à faux nerfs ornés de filets gras et maigres, roulettes en queue et tête. Titre et tomaison dorés. Ensemble relativement frais, avec très peu de rousseurs, concentrées sur certains passages, notamment la préface. Quelques feuillets plus jaunis dans le tome I. Dans le Prologue au tome I, trace brune en marge interne d'une bande de papier (marque page) qui a été ôtée, sur 3 feuillets, allant s'estompant. Frottements sur les plats. Bon exemplaire, d'un bon tirage. Célèbre illustré romantique ; une des meilleures productions de Johannot, avec le Voyage où il vous plaira et le Roland furieux. Johannot est moins couru que ne l'est Grandville, sans doute parce qu'il est plus typiquement romantique, au sens de Hugo, à la fois doux et sentimental, puis fantasque et morbide jusqu'au grotesque. Il y a plus de mystère et d'effroi chez lui que chez son comparse. "Un des très beaux livres illustrés du XIXe" Vicaire.

        Traité sur le vénin de la vipere sur les poisons Americains sur le laurier-cerise et sur quelques autres poisons végétaux. On y a joint des observations sur la structure primitive du corps animal. Différentes expériences sur la reproduction des nerfs et la description d'un nouveau canal de l'oeil.Florence, (without publisher), 1781. 2 volumes. 4to. With 10 engraved plates. Contemporary half calf, gold-tooled spine.

      Cole library 1836; Garrison, Hist. neurology, pp. 106-107, 124; Sabin 24988. A very good copy of "the starting point of modern investigations of serpent venoms." (Garrison). This work contains many of the outstanding discoveries made by the Italian physiologist and anatomist Felice Fontana (1730-1805), professor at the University of Pisa. It mainly describes experiments on viper venom and other poisons like the poison called ticunas by American Indians, the European cherry laurel tree (Prunus laurocerasus), tobacco oil, etc. Fontana also here for the first time publishes his letter describing "Fontana's canal," an important ophthalmological discovery. The work is also important in the field of neurology, since it contains Fontana's observations on the structure and reproduction of nerves, with the first illustrations ever of nerves as seen with a microscope. Some occasional minor spots, bindings rubbed, both volumes with slightly damaged hinges. Very good set of a very important work on serpent venoms and other poisons.

        Allan le Jeune Déporté à Botany-Bay.

      Paris: Desiree Eymery, 1836. Small octavo, frontispiece, title vignette and three full-page engraved plates; contemporary prize label, a handsome copy in contemporary tree calf. First edition of a scarce French children's story set in Australia about an errant child sent to the convict colony at Botany Bay. The introduction notes the work is one of moral instruction, teaching children valuable lessons in piety, honesty, honour and to love and respect their parents. Although the book is set in Australia, Muir notes the Gallic nature of its description with exotic passages on transportation, kangaroos and cannibals. The finely engraved plates are noteworthy: one depicts the hero, Allan, bound to a tree and struggling to escape as native figures dance around a blazing fire in the distance. Spine ends a little worn with slight loss at the headband.

Die seit 1792 eingeführte, auf die Tonsprache gegründete Methode S. Heineckens, wurde mit der auf die Zeichensprache basirten des französischen Abbe de l’Epée zu vereinigen gesucht; insbesondere aber richtete Czech sein Augenmerk darauf, sämmtlichen Taubstummen im Sinne der schon früher durch den Schulrath Glaser und den Pfarrer Daniel vergeblich gemachten Versuche, eine zweckmäßige Ausbildung durch Einführung des Taubstummenunterrichtes in den gewöhnlichen Schulen zu verschaffen. Zu diesem Behufe erschienen von ihm folgende Schriften: `Religions-Lesebuch für gebildete Taubstumme` (Wien 1821) und `Grundzüge des physischen Lebens gehör- und sprachloser Menschen im Naturzustande; oder Darstellung des unglücklichen Seelenzustandes der ungebildeten Taubstummen` (Wien 1826) – und `Versinnlichte Denk- und Sprachlehre, mit Anwendung auf die Religions- und Sittenlehre und auf das Leben` (Wien 1836), welches letztere durch die k. k. geh.

        Abraham Lincoln to Mary Owens – the Only Letter to his Fiancée Still in Private Hands – Short on Love and Long on Politics

      1836 - Autograph Letter Signed, to Mary S. Owens, December 13, 1836, 2 pp., 9 3/4 x 7 3/4 in. "Write back as soon as you get this, and if possible say something that will please me, for really I have not been pleased since I left you."Here, Lincoln perfectly demonstrates what Owens later described as deficiencies "in those little links which make up the chain of a woman's happiness." Rather than expressing his feelings for Owens, Lincoln complains about his health and discusses political issues swirling in the Illinois General Assembly. Although inept at love, the letter offers rare insight into the young representative's thoughts on a variety of political issues. In this highly important letter to Mary Owens, a self-absorbed Lincoln complains to his potential spouse of his health, both physical and mental, and discusses political issues to the point that he describes his own letter as "dry and stupid." Perhaps more revealing than he realized, it illustrates the tension in Lincoln's early life between matters of the head, with which he was comfortable, and matters of the heart, with which he clearly was not. Complete Transcript Vandalia, Decr 13. 1836Mary I have been sick ever since my arrival here, or I should have written sooner. It is but little difference, however, as I have verry little even yet to write. And more, the longer I can avoid the mortification of looking in the Post Office for your letter and not finding it, the better. You see I am mad about that old letter yet. I dont like verry well to risk you again. I'll try you once more anyhow. The new State House is not yet finished, and consequently the legislature is doing little or nothing. The Governor delivered an inflamitory political message, and it is expected there will be some sparring between the parties about it as soon as the two Houses get to business. Taylor delivered up his petitions for the New County to one of our members this morning. I am told that he despairs of its success on account of all the members from Morgan County opposing it. There are names enough on the petitions, I think to justify the members from our county in going for it; but if the members from Morgan oppose it, which they say they will, the chance will be bad. Our chance to take the seat of Government to Springfield is better than I expected. An Internal Improvement Convention was held here since we met, which recommended a loan of several millions of dollars on the faith of the state to construct Rail Roads. Some of the legislature are for it and some against it; which has the majority I can not tell. There is great strife and struggling for the office of U.S. Senator here at this time. It is probable we shall ease their pains in a few days. The opposition men have no candidate of their own, and consequently they smile as complacently at the angry snarls of the contending Van Buren candidates and their respective friends, as the Christian does at Satan's rage. You recollect I mentioned in the outset of this letter that I had been unwell. That is the fact, though I belive I am about well now; but that, with other things I can not account for, have conspired and have gotten my spirits so low, that I feel that I would rather be any place in the world than here. I really can not endure the thought of staying here ten weeks. Write back as soon as you get this, and if possible say something that will please me, for really I have not been pleased since I left you. This letter is so dry and stupid that I am ashamed to send it, but with my present feelings I can not do any better. Give my respects to Mr & Mrs Abell and family. Your friend LincolnMiss Mary S. OwensHistoric BackgroundThis is one of the ten oldest Lincoln letters known to have survived.

        Voyage pittoresque dans les duex Amériques. Résumé général de tous les Voyages.

      Paris: Chez L. Tenré, 1836. Quarto, with two folding maps and numerous full-page engraved plates;an attractive copy in contemporary gilt half morocco trade binding. Popular account of the natural wonders and indigenous peoples of South America, compiled by the veteran explorer naturalist Alcide Dessalines d'Orbigny (1802-1857).An accomplished microbiologist, d'Orbigny was appointed by Geoffrey de Saint-Hilaire to lead a scientific expedition to South America in 1824. Extensive travels throughout Brazil led him deep into in the Chaco and Guarani tribal territory, an experience fraught with hazard. Aspirations to travel further to the into Paraguay and Argentina were frustrated by ongoing warfare with Brazil, circumstances that led d'Orbigny to spend nine months in northern Patagonia. During this time, he conclusively disproved the existence of the Patagonian giants, a long-held belief originating from the wild stories circulated by mariners marooned along this unforgiving coastline.d'Orbigny continued his natural history collecting across for several more years, finally returning to France in 1833. He published his results in a nine volume opus; and during this time he compiled the present volume from the accounts of other famous voyagers (including Humboldt and La Condamine), liberally interspersed with anecdotes from personal experience. A little preliminary foxing otherwise.

        Rural Architecture being a Series of Designs for Ornamental Cottages.

      London: Henry G. Bohn, 1836. Quarto, decorative lithographed title, 96 plates; in original quarter morocco with morocco label on upper board. Fourth edition of the first of Robinson's six pattern-books.Peter Frederick Robinson (1776-1858) was a very successful architect as well as a prolific writer on architectural styles. As a practitioner he is best remembered for his designs for the Egyptian Hall at Piccadilly and the Swiss Cottage in Regent's Park. A founder of the Institute of British Architects, Robinson, with Charles Barry and J.B. Papworth, was one of its first three vice-presidents.In his quest to elevate the humblest structure to the level of the picturesque, Robinson studied often-overlooked structures such as rural dwellings, dairies, out-buildings and so on. He held the view that the picturesque was a quality in the landscape which elevated the lives of those who lived in it, whether they were labourers or the landed gentry. Robinson's present study of cottages, which present twenty designs in plan, elevation and charmingly-rendered perspective, had quite an impact, even here in Australia, where the picturesque cottage orné became a popular style and his pattern-books would have been a useful resource. James Broadbent mentions the influence of Robinson, in particular on Conrad Martens's design of Rockleigh Grange, North Sydney. Some spotting throughout, but good.

Two pertinent passages underscored in red pencil. Very good. In a half calf and cloth folding box, spine gilt. Of the highest importance in the religious history of California, this decree provides for the establishment of the first bishopric in California. This decree came on the heels of the secularization of the California missions, which had been the foundation of religious organization there. The procedures for establishing a separate diocese and appointing a new bishop are given, the bishop to be chosen by the government based on the recommendation of the cabildo metropolitano and proposed to the Pope. The government would grant an annual stipend of 6000 pesos to fund the bishopric, which would also have at its disposal monies from the Pious Fund. The decree was issued by Mexican President Jose Justo Corro, and bears the printed signature of Joaquin de Iturbide. We are unable to locate any copies of this decree on OCLC. Rare and important.

        A Series of Lithographic Drawings of Sydney and its Environs. Coloured £1 8s. - Plain 13s. 6d.

      Sydney: J.G. Austin, 1836. Oblong quarto, eight lithographed plates; stab-sewn in printed yellow titling-wrapper with a later back wrapper; a fine copy preserved in a cloth case. A very desirable set of Austin's famous but extremely rare Sydney views, among the earliest lithographic views to have been published in the colony.In April 1836 Austin began work on his series of views of Sydney and its surroundings based on original drawings by the painter Robert Russell. Although he originally planned a series of twenty-four, just sixteen such views had been published by the end of 1836 and the series was halted by his death in 1837.Austin prepared the views using the relatively new method of lithography. The first lithographic press to arrive in the colony had been brought out by Governor Brisbane in the early 1820s for his astronomical work at the Parramatta Observatory. It did not see much use, but was discovered by Augustus Earle who began to make prints from it in the late 1820s, and ultimately owned it. (As Butler points out, another press may have arrived in the colony by 1828 as the surveyor Bemi produced some maps while Thomas Mitchell, the Surveyor-General, produced a few images). Earle failed to find a buyer for the press on his departure in 1828, so this was very likely the press that by 1834 was in use by the printmaker and publisher J.G. Austin shortly after his arrival in Sydney. Not long afterwards Austin formed a partnership with William Fernyhough, draughtsman and lithographer.The publishing history of Austin's views is poorly recorded. In total, 16 plates were issued in four parts in 1836. The following year, a "collected" edition appeared, published over Austin's 12 Bridge Street address. However, no full set of this collected edition appears to be recorded, and it seems that Austin issued the series in different configurations according to what plates he had available. Thus, Ferguson notes only two copies, a set in the Mitchell Library with 12 plates from the series, and a second set in the National Library with seven plates from the series separately mounted. This set in its striking original yellow wrappers contains respectively numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 9 and 15 from the full series. As usual the colophon on some plates has Austin's earlier Hunter Street address. The plates appear in the following order:Catholic Chapel (Hyde Park)Lower Lodge, Govt. DomainGovernment House, SydneyLa Perouse Monument, Botany BayOld Windmill, Government DomainToll Gate and Benevolent Asylum, George Street SouthSt James Church, Supreme Court HouseSouth Head Light House (Port Jackson).

        La fausse industrie, morcelée, répugnante, mensongère, et l'antidote, l'industrie naturelle, combinée attrayante, véridique, donnant quadruple produit.

      Paris, Bossange, 1836. ____ Première édition. Ces deux volume réunis sont très rares du fait qu'ils n'ont pas de tomaison et se sont trouvés dispersés. Seul le second porte à la fin la mention "fin de la 3e section et du 2e tome". C'est le dernier livre de Fourier, et le plus désordonné de ses ouvrages. A cause de cela, et de sa pagination déconcertante, il n'a pas été repris dans ses oeuvres complètes. "La doctrine est bien restée la même : ni les principes n'ont variés, ni les applications. Seules quelques théories particulières ont été modifiées, quelques adjonctions ont été faites. Par exemple la théorie de la répartition a subit des changements et reçu des améliorations ; le système de la "répartition du capital" y a été incorporé. Un nouveau projet de réalisation, un projet de phalanstère d'enfants a trouvé place dans l'exposition des voies et moyens, et y a pris une grande importance. Ces retouches n'ont pas altéré le caractère et la figure de la doctrine..." (Hubert Bourgin. Fourier, p.185 - Thèse de lettres). Collation conforme à celle donnée par Del Bo, page 7. Le dos du tome 2 a été refait à l'imitation du premier. *****. In-8. Collation : [pagination variée et très fantaisiste] Toile brune, dos orné de filets dorés. (Reliure de l'époque.).
