        Ancient National Airs of Gwent and Morganwg; being a collection of Original Welsh Airs,

      Llandovery. Soho Square. London.: William Rees. D'Almaine and Mackinlay In contemporary embossed cloth, corners and edges a little bumped and worn, some repairs, gilt title and harp to upper board. New brown cloth spine, printed titles to paper label. Internally, yellow endpapers, stamped Llandaff address to fep, stamped name (EL Williams - Seren Cymru) to to and dedication leaf, [5], 6-86 pp, printed by W Rees, Llandovery, not dated but 1844 per BL. Includes a 2 page subscribers list. Williams, (Maria) Jane, singer and compiler of traditional Welsh music competed at Abergavenny, but there are conflicting accounts of her victories. She probably won in 1838 for an arrangement of a Welsh air for four voices, and a year earlier for the best collection of unpublished Welsh music. This was to be published as Ancient Airs of Gwent and Morgannwg (1844), the collection of folk-songs for which she is best remembered. She was considered an authority by her contemporaries and was consulted by them on matters pertaining to folk-songs, but her authority has been challenged by modern scholars. See ODNB.

Contemporary gold- and blind-tooled dark green half morocco, green cloth sides with morocco label, nonpareil-marbled endpapers. Views, Topography [The Netherlands], Netherlands, Maps & Views, Illustrations [Lithography], Architecture Wrapper-title + 90 plates. Cat. Kunsthist. Bibl. Rijksmuseum Amsterdam III, p. 252; Springer, Bibl. Overzicht, p. 96; V.d. Steur, Harlemia Illustrata, pp. 55-56; Karlsruher Virt. Kat. (2 copies); NCC & Picarta (5 copies, incl. at least 1 incompl.); not in OCLC WorldCat; for the artist and printers see Scheen, pp. 19, 325; Lithografie in Nederland, p. 17.The first printing of all but the last four parts of a classic set of fine lithographic views in the city of Haarlem and especially the surrounding countryside, including Velsen, Bloemendaal, Heemstede, Bennebroek and other regions. 'The last great print series on the regions around Haarlem' (Van der Steur) is devoted primarily to the stately houses, with their parks, gardens, horses and carriages, boats on the canals, etc. All were beautifully and subtly drawn in situ by Lutgers (1808-1874) and expertly printed by Desguerrois in Amsterdam and Backer in Utrecht. The former, whose move from Brussels to Amsterdam in 1827/28 signalled the great breakthrough in the quality of Dutch lithography, produced about half. Van der Steur notes that the quality is superior to that in Lutger's later series for regions around Utrecht. The book was available by subscription only and was probably printed in a small edition, so that it is now extremely rare in any form, and especially with one of the original wrapper-titles. We have located only 8 other copies.Each lithograph is printed on very fine 'Chinese' paper and mounted on the heavier leaves to form a book, whereas some of the prints were later printed directly on heavy paper. The book was issued in 19 parts from 1837 to 1844.A very good copy, with occasional minor foxing, mostly in the margins. The binding also very good. One of the high points in the history of Dutch lithography.".

        FAUNE MÉRIDIONALE ou description de tous les animaux vertébrés vivans [sic] et fossiles, sauvages ou domestiques qui se rencontrent toute l'année ou qui ne sont que de passage dans la plus grande partie du Midi de la France; suivie d'une méthode de taxidermie ou l'Art d'empailler les oiseaux. [2 VOLUMES].

      1844 - Nîmes, chez l'auteur, [et] Montpellier, chez Lebrun, 1844. Deux volumes in-8 (144 X 222) demi-veau carmin, dos lisse orné de faux-nerfs en noir surlignés de filets dorés, fleurons dorés dans les compartiments, large frise noire en queue, titre et tomaison dorés (reliure de l'époque). Tome I: XXVIII (dont faux-titre et titre)-320 pages, (1) f., 41 planches hors-texte (pas de planches 12 et 28mais planches 14bis, 35bis et 36bis); Tome II: IX-354 pages, (1) f. d'errata, 32 planches (pas de planche 70). Dos de la reliure uniformément viré en teinte havane, tache très claire aux cinq derniers feuillets du second tome, sans aucune gravité. ÉDITION ORIGINALE d'un des premiers traités de zoologie concernant le midi de la France. Il est illustré de 73 PLANCHES hors-texte, lithographiées par A. Crespon fils, qui représentent pour la plupart des oiseaux (53); mais on trouve également six planches de reptiles et amphibiens, parmi lesquels des serpents, lézards, tortues, salamandres, grenouilles et crapauds et deux planches de poissons. On trouve assez aisément les volumes de texte, mais l'atlas contenant les 73 planches est très difficile à trouver. Les planches de cet atlas ont été ici insérées dans le corps d'ouvrage de l'exemplaire. Jean CRESPON (Nîmes, 1787-1857), l'un des plus grands ornithologistes français de la première moitié du XIXe siècle, fut aussi barbier, soldat, maître d'arme ou maître de danse, poète et naturaliste. Excellent et consciencieux observateur, Crespon s'exerça également à la taxidermie, et recueillit de si nombreux spécimens d'oiseaux et rassembla de si bonnes notices biologiques, qu'en 1840 il fit paraître un grand volume de 564 pages intitulé Ornithologie du Gard et des pays circonvoisins, où il décrit 321 espèces d'oiseaux. Ce livre lui vaut les éloges de la part de nombre de naturalistes de son époque. Ainsi, Isidore Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire (1805-1861) reconnaît beaucoup de valeur à son ouvrage car «il est fait sur la nature et non sur les livres comme tant d'autres ». En 1844, il fait paraître un ouvrage en deux volumes, encore plus ambitieux, intitulé La Faune méridionale. Crespon y décrit 27 nouvelles espèces. C'est à Crespon que la ville de Nîmes doit la création de son Muséum d'histoire naturelle. BEL EXEMPLAIRE, très pur, dans une jolie reliure d'époque au dos décoratif, au corps d'ouvrage d'une grande fraîcheur. (Nissen, ZBI, 989 - René Ronsil, "Bibliographie ornithologique française", T. I, n° 690 - Maurice Boubier, "L'Évolution de l'ornithologie", pp. 40-41). FINE COPY. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST. [Attributes: First Edition]

Alcuni passi a titolo esemplificativo: "Io sono stato occupatissimo a schiccherare un articolo piuttosto lungo sulla riforma delle Bibliot. Fiorentine. Il Molini ha messo fuori il Progetto, col quale si disfarebbero tanti tesori e tante memorie. Vandalo vandalo! E sento dire che il ministro sia d'accordo. Io ho parlato franco, e, dirò anche, caldo: e credo di aver dato vita a quella materia inerte e polverosa. Ma che cosa non ha vita oggi? Anche le pietre d'Italia hanno un palpito. Benedetto Dio, che ama tanto quest'Italia! Viva Pio IX!...". La missiva del 18 novembre 1845 contiene un sonetto di pugno del Guasti tit. 'A Ferruccio e Bice'. Incipit: "Bambini miei, che miei vi fa l'affetto / Come del babbo vi può far natura...". Per un totale di sei pagine di vario formato.

Jacobi zählt zwar zu den "Somatikern", aber sein Postulat der Entstehung des Irreseins aus körperlicher Krankheit war in einem doch naturphilosophischen Rahmen nicht sehr fundiert.

D'Orsay's friends are also lampooned, their names altered slightly: Lord Chesterfield becomes Chesterlane and Lord Lichfield, Bitchfield.

      - BERNHARDT Sarah (1844 – 1923), comédienne français Lettre autographe signée à (Arthur Meyer). (Février) 1905 ; 4 pages in-8 sur papier monogrammé. Sarah Bernhardt conte une anecdote sur VICTOR HUGO pour le « Gaulois » à l’occasion de la reprise d’« Angelo » au Théâtre Sarah Bernhardt : "Vous me demandez une anecdote sur mes rapports avec Victor Hugo. En voici une ( ) En 1872 je répétais Ruy Blas à l’Odéon et j’étais allée rendre visite à Victor Hugo un peu souffrant. En causant avec lui je lui exprimai mon désir de jouer la Tisbé. Le Maître debout sur son pupitre, dessinait en parlant je ne sais quel burg. Il tomba soudain dans un fauteuil en s’esclaffant – si fort qu’il en perdit la respiration. Je dus lui passer un bol de vin chaud dans lequel baignait un rond de citron et sortait à demi telle une épave un bâton de canelle. – Je m’étais agenouillée devant lui ; il me tapota la joue. Il vous faudra mon enfant prendre des formes de la voix et des années. Mon rêve se réalisa 33 ans après. Le maître n’est plus là ; il est entré dans l’immortalité mais le reflet de sa belle âme le si fier doux et fidèle Paule Meurice est toujours là et j’ai senti grâce à lui que l’éclat de rire du grand maître était devenu un bienveillant et acquiesçant sourire »
