        Notice Historique sur Hôtel Carnavalet Paris Exemplaire unique

      Paris, Chez l'Auteur, Hôtel Carnavalet, et chez les principaux libraires, 1838 - NOTICE HISTORIQUE SUR L'HÔTEL CARNAVALET, par J. Verdot, ancien élève de l'Ecole Normale, licencié de la Faculté des Lettres, Chef d'Institution. Paris, Chez l'Auteur, Hôtel Carnavalet, et chez les principaux libraires, 1838 [Notes et Additions manuscrites, 1865] 1 volume in-12 (18 x 11 cm) de 71 pages (exemplaire entièrement interfolié, pratiquement tous les feuillets comportent des additions et corrections de la main de l'auteur). Reliure de l'époque (1840) demi-veau brun, dos à faux-nerfs ornés à la manière d'un Thouvenin ou d'un Vogel (reliure non signée). Très bon état, reliure solide et décorative en dépit d'une petite fente en tête du mors supérieur et de quelques éraflures sans gravité. Intérieur très frais. Petit mouillure angulaire au titre imprimé (en marge). ÉDITION ORIGINALE. EXEMPLAIRE DE L'AUTEUR ENTIÈREMENT ANNOTÉ EN VUE DE LA PUBLICATION DE LA SECONDE EDITION PARUE 27 ANS PLUS TARD EN 1865 CHEZ AUBRY. Une des notes ajoutées par l'auteur indique : "Au mois d'août 1846, M. Verdot, Chef de l'Institution qui occupe depuis 1829 l'hôtel Carnavalet, devint à son tour le propriétaire de cette intéressante maison. C'est dire assez qu'il avait suivi avec amour sa pensée première. Il a donc acquis le droit d'ajouter aujourd'hui un chapitre à cette notice dont la première édition depuis longtemps épuisée remontre à vingt sept ans, en octobre 1838." (note manuscrite). Ces notes et additions manuscrites ont servi à l'établissement de la seconde édition de 1865 donnée par le libraire Aubry. Cette nouvelle édition a été tirée à petit nombre et est recherchée pour les 9 tirages photographiques qu'elle contient.Au moment de son acquisition par M. Verdot en 1846, l'Hôtel Carnavalet était menacé d'être détruit. M. Verdot en sera propriétaire de 1846 à 1866 date à laquelle il fut racheté par la ville de Paris. L' Institution Verdot accueille des élèves, qui suivent en demi-pensionnaire dans la journée les cours du Collège Charlemagne, collège qui ne dispose pas d'internat. Puis en fin d'après-midi, les élèves suivent à la pension des répétitions et des enseignements complémentaires fournis par des professeurs qui y arrondissent leur salaire. Ces élèves bénéficient au réfectoire, contre une rétribution assez élevée, du vivre [d'où l'expression péjorative de « marchand de soupe » appliquée parfois aux chefs d'institution] et au dortoir du logement. Jean Maurice Verdot a du succès. En témoignent les anciens élèves, le plus souvent scolarisés à Charlemagne. C'est Madame de Sévigné qui la première donne ses lettres de noblesse à cet Hôtel Carnavalet qu'elle occupe jusqu'à ses derniers jours. Jean Goujon, Hardouin Mansart, etc., ont laissé leur marque de décorateurs-architectes. Ce sera sur l'initiative du Baron Haussmann dès 1866 que ce majestueux bâtiment devient Musée Historique de la Ville de Paris. Il ouvre au public en 1880. Du 2 octobre 2016 à 2020, le musée est fermé pour rénovation complète et création d'espaces événementiels et de restauration. DOCUMENT IMPORTANT POUR L'HISTOIRE DE CARNAVALET.

      1838. London, 1682. 3rd & final edition. Anti-Presbyterian Propaganda [Trials]. [Hickes, George (1642-1715)]. Ravillac Redivivus. Being a Narrative of the Late Tryal of Mr. James Mitchel a Conventicle-Preacher, Who was Executed the 18th of January, 1677. For an Attempt Which he Made on the Sacred Person of the Arch-Bishop of St. Andrews. To Which is Annexed, An Account of the Tryal of that Most Wicked Pharisee Major Thomas Weir, Who Was Executed for Adultery, Incest and Bestiality. In Which are Many Observable Passages, Especially Relating to the Church and State of Scotland. In a Letter from a Scottish to an English Gentleman. London: Printed for Walter Kettilby, 1682.

Hickes was a bishop of the nonjuring Church of England in Scotland. A work on propaganda commissioned by his superior in Scotland, John Maitland, Duke of Lauderdale, Ravillac Redivivus, first published in 1678, is an account of the trial of the Scots-nationalist Presbyterian (covenanter) James Mitchell [d.1678] for an attempt to assassinate James Sharpe, the archbishop of St Andrews. Hickes linked Mitchell's story to that of the notorious covenanter Major Thomas Weir [c. 1600-1670], a suspected sorcerer who was executed for bestiality and incest in 1670, in order to demonstrate that fanatical dissenters violated the boundaries of moral law and were capable of committing the most outrageous crimes in the name of religion. A note at the foot of the title page, which identifies the author, reads: "The author calls himself a Scots Addvocate: (p. 46). I rather think him an English Man, probably Dr. Hicks, at that time Chaplane to the Duke of Lauderdale." English Short-Title Catalogue R19059.

        China; its state and prospects, with especial reference to the spread of the Gospel; containing allusions to the antiquity, extent, population, civilization, literature, and religion of the Chinese

      New York: Crocker & Brewster, 1838. First American edition, small 8vo, pp. xv, [1], [13]-472; folding frontispiece map, 6 wood-engravings by G. Baxter on 3 plates; a fine, bright copy in original brown cloth, gilt-lettered spine. A stunning copy. Walter Henry Medhurst (1796-1857) was an English missionary who served an apprenticeship in the printing trade before joining the Missionary Society. He was sent to Malacca in 1817 where he spent almost 20 years doing Protestant missionary work in what is now Indonesia. It was in Batavia (Jakarta) that he printed on his lithographic press the first English-Japanese dictionary in 1830. After the Opium War he moved to Shanghai in order to assist in a translation of the New Testament into Chinese, and remained in China until his return to England in 1856. Medhurst's long career in the Far East made him familiar not only with Malay and Chinese, but also with Japanese, and he is not only one of the most reliable, but also one of the most informed of the Western sinologists. He also went on to publish a Chinese dictionary and conversation book.

His remarks read, in part: "I congratulate you upon the successful removal of the Cherokees from the State; that you will no longer be harassed in your legislative proceedings by the perplexing rlations which have hitherto existed between them, the United States, and Georgia; that our citizens are at last in the quiet possession of all their lands; and the State the undisputed sovereign within her own territory."

        The Romance of Gargantua and Pantagruel, translated from the French of Dr. Francis Rabelais, by Sir Thomas Urquhart of Cromarty, Knight. Reprinted from the original editions.

      Edinburgh: Thomas G., Stevenson., 1838. - 4to, with a half-title and general title preceding the individual title being 'Works of Rabelais, translated by Sir Thomas Urquhart of Cromarty, Knight. Reprinted from the original editions. Edinburgh: 1838.' Engr. frontis. portrait, engr. vignette on general title, engr. frontis. to the 'Romance' title by Charles Kirkpatrick Sharpe, one other engr. plate, pp. [9], [1] blank, [iii] - xxx, 501, [1], cont. half brown morocco, marbled sides, scrapes to sides, binding rubbed with a couple of small scrapes to the spine. Limited to 100 copies with note on verso of general title 'Printed to range with the publications of the Maitland Club.' [Initially a touch confusing as it appears to be a Maitland Club publication but not listed in the publications of that Club. Thankfully, attached to the front paste-down end-paper is an ALs from Thomas Stevenson to a J.C. Gardner of London explaining the publication. 'Sir, In reply to your letter I beg to inform you that the 4to edition of Urquharts Rabelais was a private undertaking of my own. But several members of the Maitland Club presented a new and additional title-page, list of members of the Club and two plates to the vol. thereby making it out to appear as the 2nd vol of Urquharts works uniform with the vol printed for the Maitland Club. I have one copy at present for sale with these additions. Trusting that this will be deemed satisfactory. Yours [?] Thos. G. Stevenson.' The Maitland Club had issued a volume of Rabelais other works in 1834. [Terry 30] That volume was limited to 92 copies. The 'Romance' appears to be a scarce work.]

        Finely engraved admission ticket to the coronation of Queen Victoria.

      London: 1838 - Oblong octavo (162 x 225 mm). Red paper, embossed stamp of The Earl Marshal of England. Numbered by hand "364". Two vertical folds, remains of paste at top edge of verso (where removed from an album). In excellent condition. Rare admission ticket to Victoria's coronation on 28 June 1838, issued to Lady Aylmer (1775-1862, née Louisa Anne Call), who married Matthew Whitworth-Aylmer, 5th baron Aylmer, in 1801; he later became Governor General of British North America and Lieutenant Governor of Lower Canada (1830). "He and Lady Aylmer took their vice-regal responsibilities seriously, contributing generously to a variety of causes, such as an emigrant fund, the Female Orphan Asylum, and the Quebec Driving Club (one of a number of organizations of which Lady Aylmer became patroness). They sought to foster the arts and culture, and attended many community activities, from ploughing matches to annual races in Trois-Rivières where Aylmer donated a silver cup to be awarded for a horse bred within the province" (Dictionary of Canadian Biography). However, after the Lower Canada Rebellion of 1837-38, Aylmer was dismissed and the couple sailed for England: "Aylmer's mood was not improved by a terrifying return voyage" (ibid), described by Lady Aylmer in Narrative of the passage of the 'Pique' across the Atlantic (1837)- one of the earliest book dedicated to the newly ascended Victoria.

Octavo, period-style full green morocco with elaborately gilt-decorated spine and boards, raised bands, marbled endpapers. $4700.First edition in English of KantÂ’s major work, representing the “full maturity” of his philosophical thought.The first of his three Critiques, Kant's Critick of Pure Reason (first published in German in 1781), represents the ""full maturity"" of his philosophical thought. It treats the problem of ""how it is possible for the individual thinking subject to connect together the parts of his experience in the form we call cognitionÂ… The influence of Kant is paramount in the critical method of modern philosophy. No other thinker has been able to hold with such firmness the balance between speculative and empirical ideas. His penetrating analysis of the elements involved in synthesis, and the subjective process by which these elements are realized in the individual consciousness, demonstrated the operation of 'pure reason'; and the simplicity and cogency of his arguments achieved immediate fame"" (PMM 226).

        Illustrations to Dante’s Inferno.

      7 plates. [London: for John Linnell, 1838]. 7 plates, oblong folio, printed on laid paper only (not on India), lightly cleaned, in fine condition. First printing (subsequent to a few proofs possibly pulled by Blake himself) preceding the 1838 printing on laid india on wove paper. Essick states (Blake Quarterly vol. 24, issue 3): “The next impressions to be pulled after Blake’s own working proofs are probably those printed directly on laid paper (not to be confused with India paper laid on wove) showing clear wire and chain lines, the latter approximately 3.7 cm. apart. Such a set was sold from the Doheny Memorial Library at Christie’s New York, 21 February 1989, lot 1713, plate 2 illustrated in the auction catalogue[this set]. Part of a watermark, or countermark, “A & D,” is present in plate 3. The heavy foxing of most impressions in this set [now cleaned] cannot mask the fact that these are superb impressions that justify a record price. All major engraved lines are dark, rich, and precise, while the drypoint sketching lines yet to be cut with the graver are delicately yet fully printed. Each plate in this suite reveals its superiority over all India-paper impressions I have seen. Much of this excellence is the result of expert inking and wiping of the plates’ surfaces, but the quality of these impressions also indicates that the copperplates had not begun to show any effects of wear. The clarity with which each line is printed, even in densely engraved passages, without any blurring of the boundaries between lines, suggests that the edges of each incision were still sharp and had not yet rounded to a gradual slope. This rounding can begin to occur after as few as ten impressions have been pulled from a copperplate. This initial wear is probably caused both by running the plates through the rolling press and by the inking process, for the craftsman must wipe the surface of an intaglio copperplate with dozens of strokes of his hand in preparation for taking a single impression.”
