[LA PEROUSE] [DUMONT D'URVILLE] GOUPIL, Ernest (1814-1840) & Louis LE BRETON (1818-1866).
Vanikoro (Santa Cruz Islands) and ?Paris: c.1838 and possibly worked on later. Pencil drawing, 245 x 407 mm; inscribed at the lower left "E. Goupil" and dated 1838; titled as above on mount. This fine original drawing from the Dumont d'Urville expedition of 1837-1840 shows the mouth of the Paiu river (today known as the Lawrence River) at Vanikoro, one of the Santa Cruz Islands in the Solomons, where the French established that the La Pérouse expeditioners ended their days. This is the original drawing for plate 97 in Dumont d'Urville's Atlas pittoresque du Voyage au Pôle Sud et dans l'Océanie sur les corvettes l'Astrolabe et la Zélée (Paris, 1846).Dumont d'Urville's second expedition revisited Vanikoro, calling there on 6 November 1838, fifty years after the disappearance of the La Pérouse expedition and ten years after their earlier visit immediately following up on the reports of objects discovered there by Dillon. D'Urville himself had not been able to visit the wreck site on the earlier visit when he was recovering from malarial fever; Duyker speculates that it may have been exactly this reason that caused him to return. The sentiment felt by the tough commander shows through even in the official account.We know from that account that they scanned the seabed again but could find no traces of the wreck on account of the choppy waters. They examined an area that seemed to have been cleared of trees which he speculated might have been the French encampment. However it was now covered in thick vegetative regrowth which presented too great an obstacle to consider clearing. … [Click Below for Full Description]

M. Thiers
London: Richard Bentley. THE HISTORY OF THE FRENCH REVOLUTION! Complete in 5 volumes. Printed in 1838! Printed in English. FIRST EDITION/FIRST PRINTING, of the English Edition. Printed in 1838. This set is over 180 years old. Complete in 5 volumes, as tested on the title pages. By M. Adolphe Thiers Marie Joseph Louis Adolphe Thiers (15 April 1797 - 3 September 1877) was a French statesman and historian. He was the second elected President of France, and the first President of the French Third Republic. Thiers was a key figure in the July Revolution of 1830, which overthrew the Bourbon monarchy, and the French Revolution of 1848, which established the Second French Republic. He served as a prime minister in 1836, 1840 and 1848, dedicated the Arc de Triomphe, and arranged the return to France of the ashes of Napoleon from Saint-Helena. He was first a supporter, then a vocal opponent of Louis-Napoléon Bonaparte (who served from 1848 to 1852 as President of the Second Republic and then called himself Emperor Napoleon III, reigning from 1852 to 1871). When Napoleon III seized power, Thiers was arrested and briefly expelled from France. He then returned and became an opponent of the government. His work on the French Revolution was praised by the French authors Chateaubriand, Stendhal and Sainte-Beuve, was translated into English (1838) and Spanish (1889), and won him a seat in the Académie française in 1834. Bound in morocco leather bindings. These are the original bindings approaching 200 years old. Raised hubs on the gilded spines.

1838. London, Henry G. Bohn. 1838. 8vo, xxvii, 243pp. Portrait frontispiece on India paper, 51 plates (complete, enclosed publisher's slip states that plate #18 was never engraved). Original green cloth with printed paper spine label, rubbed and worn. Pp.33-48 are missing but this is more than made up for by the extra illustration of the book with 28 original pages of sketches by Flaxman from his sketchbooks, many of which appear as plates in the book. § Walter Crane's copy which ended up in the possession of Shane Leslie, first cousin of Winston Churchill, at Castle Leslie in Co. Monaghan, after it was acquired by his father Sir John Leslie a friend of the Pre-Raphaelites. This book was acquired directly from the Leslie family. "In an age much given to the cultivation of classic art and virtue, Flaxman, even as a lad, with no models before him except the plaster casts of his father's shop, had shown in his drawings and models an instinct beyond that of any of his contemporaries for the true qualities of Greek design. He had the secret, almost lost to modern art, of combining ideal grace of form and rhythmical composition of lines with spontaneousness and truth of pose and gesture, and the unaffected look of life. Sketching constantly, as was his habit, with pen and pencil the leading lines and masses of every scene and every action of daily humanity that caught his attention within doors or without, and at the same time studying ardently, since his arrival in Italy, the works of Greek design in ancient vases and bas-reliefs, he had greatly strengthened his natural gifts bo … [Click Below for Full Description]

AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY & LITERATURE] [PURVIS, Robert
Merrihew and Gunn, 1838. First Edition. An appeal to the people of Pennsylvania, attempting to persuade them "to vote against the ratification of a new constitution for Pennsylvania in 1838 because the word "white" had been inserted prior to "freemen" as a qualification for voting" (Reader, David. The Encyclopedia of Greater Philadelphia). The decision towards disfranchisement stemmed from a lack of clarity in the state constitution's definition of "freemen" (which varied from county to county, depending on local politics and tradition), as well as increasing tension over the issue of slavery following Nat Turner's Rebellion in Virginia. Appeal was prepared by Robert Purvis (1810-1898), son of a European Jew and a free woman of color, and a prominent abolitionist who, along with his two brothers, chose to identify with the Black community, using his education and family's wealth to support anti-slavery activities. Acting as chairman of a seven member committee chosen to represent the African American citizens of Pennsylvania, his pamphlet "highlighted the achievements, sacrifices, and value of the black community to Philadelphia" (ibid.). "Fellow Citizens: - We appeal to you from the decision of the "Reform Convention," which has stripped us of a right peaceably enjoyed during forty-seven years under the Constitution of this commonwealth.

Zeitgenössische Reinschrift der von Schuler 1838 im Innsbrucker Verein "Die Namenlosen" gehaltenen Beethoven-Gedenkrede, die posthum in seinen "Gesammelten Schriften" (Innsbruck 1861, S. 166-178) gedruckt wurde. Wohl von Schuler selbst als Geschenkexemplar für einen namentlich nicht genannten Freund besorgte Reinschrift, der am Ende des Manuskripts folgenden Eintrag hinterließ: "Ich danke dir lieber Schuler! Unter Thränen gelesen im (!) meinen 7u.7sten Jahr!". - Der Jurist und Schriftsteller Schuler, Abgeordneter der Frankfurter Nationalversammlung und Wegbereiter der Tiroler Literatur im Vormärz, hinterließ auch eine Reihe literarischer Werke, darunter das Libretto zur Oper "Die zehn glücklichen Tage" von Louis Schindelmeisser. Schuler, der in seiner Gedenkrede auf Lebensstationen und Charakter sowie einzelne Werke Beethovens (u. a. die Sonate für Pianoforte und Violine in G-Dur, Op. 96) eingeht, konnte diesem während seiner Studienzeit in Wien ab 1820 noch persönlich begegnet sein. Die überragende musikgeschichtliche Bedeutung des damals noch verkannten Meisters war Schuler bewusst ("obwohl keinem seiner erhabensten Kunstgenossen nachstehend, ist [er] unter unsern Umgebungen am wenigsten gekannt, u. beinahe unverstanden", Bl. 3v), und seine Rede ist ein wichtiges Zeugnis der frühen Beethoven-Biographik, die eigentlich erst 1838 mit den "Biographischen Notizen" von Wegeler und Ries einsetzte. - Einband gering berieben; Papier leicht gebräunt aber insgesamt v … [Click Below for Full Description]
