RARISSIMA E IMPORTANTE PUBBLICAZIONE DI CODICI CHE RIGUARDANO LA STORIA DELL'ITALIA MERIDIONALE DALL'ANNO 703 AI PRIMI DECENNI DEL 1100, UNA VOLTA CUSTODITI NELL'ARCHIVIO REALE DI NAPOLI, ANDATI PERDUTI IN UN BOMBARDAMENTO NELLA SECONDA GUERRA MONDIALE. LE TAVOLE, CON LA ESATTA RIPRODUZIONE CODICI DI DIVERSE ETÀ , SONO INSERITE PER CHI VOGLIA APPRENDERE LA LETTURA DEI VARI TIPI DI SCRITTURA MEDIEVALE. EDIZIONE COMPLETA, ANCHE SE IL 3 VOLUME è ASSENTE PER RAGIONI DI ERRORE EDITORIALE, COME SI PUò CONSTATARE AL LINK PIù SOTTO. I VOLUMI SONO IN CUCITURA NUDA, E CIOè SENZA RILEGATURA, COME USAVA UN TEMPO. ALCUNI CONSERVANO LA VELINA DI PROTEZIONE, PERALTRO MOLTO STANCA. LA QUASI TOTALITà DELLE PAGINE DI OGNI VOLUME è ANCORA CHIUSA E DA APRIRE. Parlando dell?opera intrapresa il sovrintendente Spinelli scriveva: (...) quel che torna in maggiore utilità de? dotti e della storia della mezzana età, le più antiche pergamene si pongono a stampa per essere capo e fondamento di un?ampia e general collezione. Le carte così come sono, e con la medesima ortografia si stampano, di acconce ed erudite note storiche e diplomatiche, e di fac - simili de? più singolari caratteri e de? suggelli si adornano. Ma di questo non ragionerò più innanzi, contento a quel che nella prefazione di quell?opera ampiamente fu detto. Che quivi molto ritroverà il reggitore intorno alle leggi, alle diverse condizioni degli uomini in que? tempi, alle formole, alla numismatica, agli anni degl?Imperatori greci, alla topografia delle nostre province, alla diplomatica, alle cose religiose e ad assai altre notizie del più alto interesse24. Chi curò l?introduzione al primo volume dell?opera (assai verosimilmente lo stesso Spinelli) precisò: (...) ai lettori riteniamo che debba essere palesato in anticipo che tutte le pergamene saranno portate alla luce divise in due gruppi, e in una prima parte invero i documenti più antichi del nostro Regno, nell?altra invero quelli redatti da quei tempi in cui tutte le nostre signorie si riunirono in un solo principato, fino a quell?epoca in cui Carlo I d?Angiò si impadronì di questo Regno. Perciò la nostra presente opera guarderà a quei tempi delle nostre cose nei quali i Longobardi, i Normanni e gli Svevi qui dominarono, e da tutti è ritenuto che finora è stato esaminato sotto molta poca luce25. I primi due volumi dell?opera, il I parte prima del 1845, contenente cinquanta documenti per gli anni dal 703 (748) al 947, ed il I parte seconda del 1847, contenente 132 documenti riferiti agli anni dal 948 al 980, furono stampati sotto l?amministrazione del sovrintendente Spinelli. Subentrato nella direzione del Grande Archivio il principe di Belmonte, Angelo Granito, questi, critico verso l?opera in corso, impresse ai lavori di pubblicazione dell?Archivio un?altra direzione. Il Granito criticò l?edizione delle Pergamene dei Monasteri Soppressi, ritenendo che si fosse cominciata a stampare una serie di atti di assai lieve importanza, mentre vi erano tanti e tanti tesori di documenti storici sconosciuti da dare in luce. Andare innanzi così non doveva farsi ad alcun patto, ed una pubblicazione di tutte le 60 mila pergamene della Sala, oltre ad essere impossibile sarebbe stata ridicola: interrompere anche questa seconda pubblicazione26 non era conveniente. Il primo volume era terminato, e del secondo stampato tutto il testo, onde mi limitai a disporre che ne? volumi consecutivi invece delle troppo prolisse annotazioni del primo, si facessero note soltanto a que? passaggi che li meritassero; ed a fissare ad essa [opera] un termine, per quale scelsi il principio della monarchia, potendosi in qualche maniera giustificare di pubblicarsi per intero tutte le pergamene dell?epoca anteriore per l?antichità dei tempi ed oscurità della storia. Così si è fatto insino al sesto volume, ultimo dell?opera, che ho lasciato quasi interamente finito di stampare (...)27. Sotto la direzione del Granito, quindi, si mandò a compimento la stampa dei successivi volumi: il II nel 1849, contenente 180 documenti per gli anni 981 / 1000; il IV, che avrebbe dovuto essere il III, nel 1854, che riportava 128 atti riferiti agli anni 1001 / 1048; il V nel 1857, contenente 166 documenti per gli anni 1050 / 1114. Il VI ed ultimo volume avrebbe visto la luce nel 1861, sotto la direzione Trinchera, e conteneva 54 atti per il periodo 1115 - 1130, nonché una appendice con 57 documenti, di cui alcuni senza data ed altri i cui estremi cronologici andavano dall?anno 880 al 1119. Francesco Trinchera nel 1866 nel tracciare gli ulteriori piani editoriali dell?Archivio di Stato di Napoli, dopo l?ultimo volume dei RNAM, scriveva: 24 ANTONIO SPINELLI, Degli archivi napoletani.. cit., pp. 39 - 40. 25 RNAM, vol. I parte I, p. XXXII, nella traduzione di Giacinto Libertini. 26 Il riferimento e all?interruzione della pubblicazione del Syllabus contenente i documenti delle Arche in pergamene. 27 ANGELO GRANITO, Dell?ordinamento del Grande Archivio cit., pp. 34 - 35. 14 L?Archivio sta preparando tutto quello che fa d?uopo perché a questa prima raccolta succeda una seconda sullo stesso genere di scritture monastiche, la quale ne differirebbe solo per l?epoca: perciocché avrà incominciamento con la monarchia, e finirà con gli Svevi; donde poscia moverebbe il Codice diplomatico angioino, di cui or ora si parlerà in proprio luogo. Cotal seconda pubblicazione conterrebbe il solo sunto delle pergamene con le annotazioni, nella stessa forma e con lo stesso ordine come è proceduto il Sillabo delle membrane: che sol quando i documenti possono più da vicino fornire degli utili schiarimenti alla storia di queste province, le pergamene si pubblicherebbero per intero28. In realtà né questa continuazione nella pubblicazione delle pergamene più antiche, seppure in regesto, né il tanto vagheggiato29 Codice diplomatico angioino, avrebbero mai visto la luce. http: / / catalog.hathitrust.org / Record / 000380908

"...The Roadsters' Album, a rare and humorous volume of hand-colored aquatints by C.B. Newhouse, an artist who confined himself almost exclusively to scenes of mail and stage coaching and sport driving. The book is an excellent example of Newhouse's work, as his images usually portray the speed associated with the open road, and the calamity or comedy that speed can bring about" (National Sporting Library).At the beginning of the nineteenth century, Messrs. Fores (established 1785-86) "..specialised in publishing and selling the best sporting prints" (Siltzer).Along with Newhouse's Scenes on the Road (1834-35) it would be difficult to find a book which better illustrates the world of coaching as it must have been than The Roadsters' Album. Each aquatint has been expertly hand-colored with a vividness that would be hard to surpass.The Plates:1. Travelling in a Hunting Country - "I hope you are not much hurt, Sir."2. An Unwelcome Fare - "All that luggage by the Mail, Ma'am, quite impossible."3. The Drag is broke and we are on the Bank.4. "No time to lose, Ma'am; here's the other coach close behind."5. "Hold hard!

        North American Indians [plate]

      1845. CATLIN, George.North American Indians.New York: James Ackerman's Lithographic Rooms, [1845].A fine image from Catlin?'s North American Indian Portfolio, one of the most important accounts of Native American life, depicting three Native Americans "representing three different tribes, of various latitudes": an Osage warrior, from a southern latitude; an Iroquois ("an almost extinguished tribe"), with his tomahawk in hand, from a northern climate, and a Pawnee woman, from an intermediate latitude. Handsomely framed.After seeing a delegation of Indians in Philadelphia, Catlin resolved "to use my art and so much of the labors of my future life as might be required in rescuing from oblivion the looks and customs of the vanishing race of the native man in America" (DAB). Between 1830 and 1836, painting some 600 portraits of Indians, their villages and their lives, he produced one of the most important and sought-after works in American ethnology, the North American Indian Portfolio. Catlin lived among almost all the important tribes, scattered throughout the Upper Missouri, the headwaters of the Mississippi, and the Southwest. Later he transported his "Indian Gallery" throughout the eastern United States and Europe in a vain attempt to arouse public sympathy for the Indians; he dedicated his life to his mission and died destitute. This is plate No. 1 from his Portfolio, first published in London in 1844 with 25 hand-colored lithographs. Abbey notes that "copies are also found with the imprint New York: James Ackerman, 1845"--this plate is from that early New York issue. "The American edition of the Indian Portfolio was produced by the New York lithographer James Ackerman entirely separately from the English versions. In his preface Ackerman proudly stated that he had demonstrated American craftsmanship superior to English at a lower cost. Despite his admirable efforts the book sold very poorly, as its absence from contemporary American collections and its notable rarity today attests" (Beinecke Library).See Abbey, Travel 653; Sabin 11532.Fine condition.

D. rifatto con carta d'epoca e restauri ai piatti. Usuali, ma sporadiche, fioriture. Opera che descrive in prosa e versi i monumenti e le bellezze del giardino di villa Puccini presso Scornio corredata da un ricco apparato iconografico: 'in quella villa si vedevano allora riuniti i piu' famosi guerrieri, scrittori, artisti, viaggiatori, filosofi: Catlina, Pitagora, Dante, Michelangiolo, Giovanni da Procida, Colombo, Raffaello, Machiavelli, Galileo, tasso, Ferruccio, Vico, Napoleone, Canova, Alessandro Manzoni. Il Puccini voleva dedicare un busto anche al Niccolini, ma questo lo impedi' scongiurandolo a nome dell'antica amicizia. Tutte le memorie delle glorie italiane con tanto amore raccolte nel giardino di Scornio per educare il popolo a nobili e liberi affetti, ora sono tolte alla vista del pubblico.'. Vannucci, 'Ricordi della vita e delle opere di G.-B. Niccolini', Firenze, 1866, p. 151. 'Quello di Scornio e' un giardino incantato che difficilmente si potrebbe descrivere come merita. sia che uno voglia dire del parco. sia finalmente che uno rivolga l'occhio al grandioso edifizio denominato Ponte Napoleone e alla torre di Catilina innalzata sopra il poggio estremo e piu' rilevato del parco.'

Elaborate bookplate of Michael Tomkinson of Franche Hall (1841-1921), carpet manufacturer, and loom innovator, who became know for his collection of Japanese art, and for his library. A remarkable family memorial to Lord Hill, the impressively massive binding containing the official life of Hill, the second edition of the same year as the first, and lightly corrected; a "portrait gallery" of notables; and an archive including significant documents from various stages of his career, including his famous letter to his mother choosing a career in the Army; his commissions as lieutenant of an independent company, and to the 53rd, both signed by the King; his letter of appointment to Wellington's staff in the Peninsula, and similar documentation relating to his attachment to the Army in Europe for the Waterloo Campaign; together with a substantial digest of "Private Intelligence" from Peninsula relating to the manoeuvres leading to the battle of Arroyo des Molinos. "Rowland Hill moved to the forefront of Wellington's generals in the Peninsula, yet his accomplishments are today little known, lost in a maze of stereotype and the failure of commentators to set his work in proper perspective. The key to understanding Hill was his characteristically unswerving loyalty to his superiors, a trait which Wellington appreciated, indeed demanded. Accordingly a view of Hill as timorous and lacking in confidence has arisen in standard works, even though the evidence shows that at crucial times he lived by his wits, acted decisively, and won impressive victories. It is true that a modern reader may find it difficult to wax enthusiastic about the martial qualities of a general described by Elizabeth Longford as "Rowland Hill, the beloved 'Daddy' or 'Farmer' Hill who looked like a benevolent coachman", but let us put aside these descriptions and look at the dynamics of command in the Peninsula. Hill's nicknames may reflect his even temper and his humanitarian attributes, but they make it difficult to perceive his efficiency, even his ruthlessness, as a commander" (Teffeteller, "Wellington and Sir Rowland Hill", The International History Review, XI, I, February 1989, p.68). His father had intended Rowland for a career at law, but he showed an early independence of mind rejecting his family's wishes, explaining that, "I should not like that line of life, for indeed I have a dislike of the Law, and am sure I should be neither happy or make any figure as a Lawyer, the Profession I should like best, & I hope you will not object too [sic] is the Army" (present here). First commissioned in 1790, in 1792 he received a commission as lieutenant in the 53rd (present here) setting out on a career of "active service that was virtually unbroken during the wars of the next twenty-three years" (ODNB). Hill was at Toulon in 1793, and in 1801 accompanied the British force under Abercromby to Egypt being severely wounded, but recovering sufficiently well to join the advance on Cairo. In 1805, on the way to command a brigade in Hannover, Hill first encountered the future Duke of Wellington, making a significant "impression on the sagacious mind of that illustrious man, an impression that became more and more confirmed in each successive year of intercourse in war and peace, and was evinced under every possible modification that could exhibit admiration, gratitude, and confidence, as worthy of the breast whence they sprung as of the noble spirit towards which they were directed" (Sidney, p.72). At the next opportunity Wellington called upon Hill; "On embarking for the Peninsular in 1808, Wellington wrote to him: "My dear Hill, I rejoice extremely at the prospect I have before me of serving again with you, and I hope we shall have more to do than we had on the last occasion on which we were together". Wellington entrusted Hill with his own independent command of an army, despite there being more senior officers than him in the Peninsular" (Waterloo 200 website, retrieved 10/6/2015). Hill's letter of appointment (present here) appointing him to "serve as a Major General with one Aide de Camp on the Staff of the Forces upon a particular service under the Command of Lieutenant General Sir Arthur Wellesley". With Wellington temporarily in command Hill was assigned to organise the embarkation. "The force of about 10,000 men sailed from Cork on 12 July and arrived off Portugal on 1 August. Hill supervised the landing at Mondego Bay, about 100 miles north of Lisbon. Wellesley quickly formed his forces and engaged Delaborde at Roliça; Hill commanded the 1st brigade, which was stationed in the centre of Wellesley's position. Rifleman Harris gave a poignant account of Hill's great courage when he rallied the 29th foot after the death of its colonel. When Delaborde withdrew, Junot offered battle at Vimeiro. Hill's force occupied Wellesley's right, but the French were forced back and virtually routed. Soon afterwards the combatants signed the disgraceful convention of Cintra, following which Hill's brigade came under the command of Sir John Hope, under Sir John Moore" (ODNB). Following the defeat of Soult at Corunna, in which he commanded a brigade, Hill took leave in Ireland, returning to the Peninsula with around 4000 reinforcements for Cradock's forces at Lisbon. Hill's performance on the Douro, and at Talavera, where he was wounded, confirmed Wellington's faith in him and in 1809 he was appointed "to a semi-independent command in the Portuguese Alentejo based on two factors: he meticulously followed orders, and he knew how to adapt troops to unusual circumstances. With British resources so meagre, Hill was an ideal choice for such an assignment" (Waterloo 200). When Hill was sent home for six months to recuperate from the effects of fever contracted at Torres Vedras, command devolved to Beresford whose conduct at Albuera was deeply flawed, his "disposition was faulty, his orders were indecisive, and his losses of British troops were staggering" (ODNB). When he returned in June 1811 Hill "soon reconstructed the southern wing into a potent fighting force … [&] began extensive secret preparations to force a showdown with Girard" in the Estremadura. (The forty-page "Abstract of Private Intelligence" noted below, relates to the period of campaigning January to August 1811). Hill's singular victory at Arroyo des Molinos in 1811, where he took the Girard's army by complete surprise, devastating the French forces - 800 killed, 1300 captured, while seizing all the horses, the baggage, three field pieces, and the magazine with just seven killed and sixty-four wounded - "was a great contribution to allied morale in the dreary year of 1811 and began the steady elevation of Hill to the forefront of Wellington's generals". The Earl of Aberdeen, at the time ambassador to Austria, and subsequently Foreign Secretary under Wellington, wrote to his brother Alexander, aide-de-camp to Wellington in the Peninsula, who died at Waterloo: "I have formed a notion that he is the second best man in Portugal" to which his brother replied, "You are perfectly right" (BL, Add. MS 43224). In May 1812, after the capture of Badajoz, Hill led the raid that destroyed a vital bridge in the Battle of Almaraz, and while Wellington obtained victory at Salamanca, Hill covered Badajoz with an independent 18,000-man corps, including the British 2nd Division, John Hamilton's Portuguese division and William Erskine's 2nd Cavalry Division. Following the capture of Madrid, Hill had charge of an army of 30,000 men, commanding the Right Column during the campaign and decisive British victory at Vitoria in June 1813, his military skills exemplary, "He skilfully manoeuvred his troops to oppose the French attacks and maintained the initiative throughout the battle" (Waterloo 200). Hill commanded a corps in the Battle of the Pyrenees and at Nivelle . On 13 December 1813, during the Battle of the Nive, Hill performed what may have been his finest work in his defence of St. Pierre d'Irube. With his force of 14,000 men and 10 guns were cut off on the east bank of the Nive by a broken bridge, Hill held off the attacks of Marshal Nicolas Soult's 30,000 soldiers and 22 guns. He engaged with typical skill and determination, being "seen at every point of danger, and repeatedly led up rallied regiments in person to save what seemed like a lost battle … He was even heard to swear" (Oman, Wellington's Men, p.118). Wellington riding up later in the day declaring: 'Hill, the day's your own!'. The allies continued to move east in 1814, "and in late March Wellington's forces reached Toulouse, the taking of which appeared to be a bloody operation. Hill attacked the St Cyprien suburb, the other units began their assault, and, by 11 April, Soult's forces withdrew towards the south. At this time couriers arrived to bring official notice that Bonaparte had abdicated and peace had been declared. Wellington left Hill in command of the allied army while he travelled to Paris. Hill's accomplishments were exceeded only by those of the commander-in-chief" (ODNB). The consummation of Wellington's trust in Hill came at the final confrontation at Waterloo, Hill received command II Corps, composed of 25,000 to 30,000 men, which Wellington placed to the far right of his main position at Mont St Jean, south of Waterloo. "Bonaparte's movements were carried out in secrecy, but Wellington could not give up his view that Bonaparte might direct his advance over good road to Hill's position, so he kept his right wing strong, perhaps too strong". Although largely unengaged through the battle, towards the conclusion Hill led Adams's Brigade against the final attack of the Imperial Guard, his horse being shot from under him he was thought dead for some time. As remarked by Sidney, the full extent of Hill's services at Waterloo "seems never to have been know to the public", but the present work contains an account contributed by Sir Digby Mackworth who was on Hill's staff; "He placed himself at the head of his Light Brigade, 52nd, 71st, and 95th, and charged the flank of the Imperial Guard as they were advancing towards our Guards. The Light Brigade was lying under the brow of the hill, and gave and received volleys within half pistol shot distance. Here Lord Hill's horse was shot under him, and, as he ascertained the next morning, was shot in five places" (pp.306-7). The corps suffered casualties of over a thousand killed and wounded. Yet again Hill had lived up to his commander's commendation, that "The best of Hill is that I always know where to find him". His importance to the conclusion of the battle was celebrated in Hillingford's splendidly elegiac "Lord Hill invites the Last Remnants of the French Imperial Guard to surrender", now fittingly hanging in the National Trust property Sunnycroft in Lord Hill's beloved Shropshire. Hill remained with the army in France until it was withdrawn in 1818, returning to England and the management of his estate at Hardwicke Grange. At the Coronation of George IV in 1821, he was selected by the king to carry the Royal Standard in the procession from Westminster Hall to Westminster Abbey, and from 1828 to 1842 he succeeded Wellington as Commander-in-Chief. Hill died at his home in December 1842. His achievements were celebrated in his home county by the building of Lord Hill's Column, at over 133 feet the highest Doric column in England, topped by a seventeen-foot Coade stone statue of Hill, which stands outside the Shirehall in Shrewsbury. Begun in 1814, the last stone was laid on the first anniversary of victory at Waterloo. The letters and documents included here, are, in chronological order: 1/ Two-page autograph letter signed, Chester 6 March 1790. Hill's letter to his mother explaining his dislike of the law, and desire to be a soldier; " … I should not like that line of life, for indeed I have a dislike of the Law, and am sure that I should neither be happy or make any figure as a Lawyer, the Profession which I should like best … is the Army." 2/ Two-page autograph letter signed from Hill's father containing his reply, "My Dear Lad do not think me in the least angry with you for coming to this resolution, but rather glad that you have declared your sentiments … You know my situation & that I can do very little more for my numerous family than putting them in a way to get their living & giving them the best advice in my power". 3/ Commission on vellum, 24 January 1791, appointing Hill lieutenant of an independent company, signatures of George III and Grenville. 4/ Commission on vellum 16 March 1791 appointing Hill lieutenant in the 53rd, similarly signed. 5/ Four-page autograph letter signed from Hill's mother, 4 September 1800; "you may easily imagine we are extremely anxious to hear how you are and where you are". 6/ One-page letter appointing Hill to "serve as a Major General with one Aide de Camp on the Staff of the Forces upon a particular service under the Command of Lieutenant General Sir Arthur Welllesley" 5 July 1808, signed by Sir James Pulteney, Secretary at War. 7/ One-page autograph letter signed to Hill from General Leith at Thomar 24 July 1810, "a few lines from you or any of your confidential people of what is passing, especially as it may regard my movements will much gratify and oblige". 8/ Four-page autograph letter signed to Hill from the Marques de la Romano - "the only Spanish general who Wellington trusted" (Haythornthwaite) - 24 April 1810 with intelligence concerning Badajoz, "the enemy is still laying at Montijo , Puebla and other villages in the right side of Guadriana, near fifteen hundred arrived to [sic.] Merida coming threw [sic.] the road of Sevilla". Sidney remarks of the marques "how the worthy Spaniard picked up enough of our language to write as he did, is quite a marvel" (p.134). Text in French and English. 9/ 'Abstract of Private Intelligence', over forty-page digest of intelligence from various sources covering the period between January and August, 1811; "Jan 2nd - Letter from Lord Wellington directing Col. Grant to endeavour to gain information of the Enemy & report to himself & Lt. Genl. Hill … Jan. 9th. Colonel Bathurst - Don Philippe Lucius is to be paid 4 dollars for every letter containing information of the Enemy … Feb. 15th The Marquise de la Romano, Badajos. The Enemy retired yesterday from this front, & I sent a Party of Cavalry and Infantry to ascertain their movements - & I have this moment received report of his being advancing … Feb. 25th Col. Campbell - The night before last 2 Spanish Officers, one of them a Lt. Col. was taken upon at Valentia de Aleantara, detected in carrying on a treasonable correspondence with the Enemy. Several Spanish Officers are daily passing my out posts, without Passports … May 2nd. Col. Lecky - The Enemy continues to invest Ciudad Rodrigo with 10,000 infantry & 1,500 Cavalry - Astorgo surrendered to the Enemy on the 22nd … May 3rd Cap. O'Bryan, Aleantara - The Enemy's force at the moment in the Estramadura amounts to about 12,000 men including 2,000 good Cavalry … May 13th Col. de Brito - At nine o'clock last night the French Troops began to retire from this place to Talavera where they now remain …" 10/ One-page autograph letter signed from General Long, together with a brief pencilled note, relating intelligence concerning enemy movements on the Truxillo Road, "I have left a picket on the high Truxillo road to observe it, and to serve as a point of communication between St. Pedro & Arroyo de Molinos …" 11/ Two-page letter to Hill from the Jean-Baptiste Drouet, comte d'Erlon, 17 June 1812. Drouet is considered "one of the most reliable French commander of the war" (Haythornthwaite p. 86). 12/ Letter appointing Hill to "serve on the Staff of the Army on the Continent of Europe", Horse Guards, 29 March 1815, over the signature of Lord Hazlehurst. 13/ Part-printed appointment document, completed in manuscript appointing Hill "to serve as a Lieutenant General with two Aides de Camp upon the Staff on the Continent of Europe", War Office, 3 April 1815. Over the signature of Palmerston. 14/ Three-page autograph letter signed from John Scott, Lord Eldon, Lord Chancellor 1801-27, on matters relating to the Welsh Circuit with draft reply, 5 April 1822. 15/ Three-page manuscript document relating to roads in the vicinity of Hill's Shropshire seat, Hawkstone, with Hill's manuscript notes, c.1825, together with four related pages of further documentation, 1826-7. 16/ Single-page manuscript poem in the hand of Hill's namesake and kinsman the evangelical preacher, and aristocratic eccentric Rowland Hill ( (1744?-1833). 17 /Single-page autograph letter signed from Wellington to Lord Melbourne concerning the New Forest Yeomanry, 25 June 1832. 18/ Two-page autograph letter signed from Sir Henry Hardinge, 14 Oct 1835. Hardinge served as a staff officer in the Peninsula, lost a hand at Ligny, was Secretary at War for a time during Hill's time as Commander in Chief, and became Governor General of India. 19/ One-page autograph letter of condolence from Sir George Cockburn on behalf of the Duchess of Kent to Sir Rowland Hill, Lord Hill's heir; together with a holograph draft of Sir Rowland's reply. Taken together this volume represents a very apt celebration of a remarkable, and sadly overlooked British soldier: "That he rendered outstanding service as Wellington's corps commander is clear. The strength of his thought, his contributions to the war effort, and his exploits in the field set him apart. Though his reputation is limited and his command obscured by comparison with Wellington's, Hill's career epitomizes the thinking man at war" (Teffeteller, p. 75).

Fournieret Cie, Paris 1845, In-8 (13x21,5cm), 4 tomes en 4 volumes reliés. - Edition originale ; une édition confidentielle fut faite à quelques tirages pour la famille de l'auteur en 1837, il fallut attendre 8 ans pour que l'auteur se décide à la livrer au public. 9 tableaux repliés (budgets des années 1806, 1808.)

Une très légère fente au mors supérieur en tête du tome 4, sinon bel exemplaire, qui plus est d'une parfaite fraîcheur. Mémoires indispensables pour la connaissance de l'Empire selon Tulard. Mollien fut ministre du trésor du Consulat à la fin de l'Empire. Ses mémoires sont particulièrement soucieux de détails et de précisions. Dans la préface, Mollien avoue sa préférence pour l'école d'Adam Smith à la sienne propre (Mollien passa 5 années en Angleterre à étudier les finances après avoir été destitué et incarcéré sous la terreur). Il créera notamment la Cour des Comptes. L'ouvrage commence par une analyse de la situation financière de la France sous Louis XVI, jusqu'à l'avénement de Bonaparte. Le système des impôts se consolida sous Napoléon, notamment conséquences des guerres multiples de l'Empire. Les mémoires contiennent de nombreuses lettres entre le ministre et son souverain. L'auteur dresse ainsi un portrait économique et financier de la France sous l'Empire sans précédent. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] first edition. Antique bookbinding half blond glazed calf.

        Der Grossglockner vom Kreutzecke aus gesehen und von da nach der Natur aus aufgenohmmen.

      (Graz, ca. 1845).. Zeichnung in schwarzer Kreide. Links unten signiert, verso mit Vermerk: "Von Lorber als ein Geschenk erhalten am 22. Mai 1848. Surtmann". Blattgr. 41,5 x 51 cm; Bildgr. 38 x 49,5 cm. Ansicht von der Glocknergruppe wohl von Osten mit der Pasterze im Vordergrund, mit Kreuzeck wird eher nicht die südlicher gelegene Kreuzeckgruppe gemeint sein, die Zeichnung dürfte in einer Region um die Kaiser-Franz-Joseph-Höhe entstanden sein. - - - Der Musiker und spätere christliche Schriftsteller Jakob Lorber (1800-1864) stammte aus einer alteingesessenen katholischen Bauernfamilie aus einer kleinen Gemeinde in der Untersteiermark, heute zu Slowenien gehörig. Mit 17 Jahren war er Lehrergehilfe und Organist in Marburg an der Drau (Maribor), spätere besuchte er ein Gymnasium in Graz, wo er seinen Lebensunterhalt als Hauslehrer für Gesang, Musik und Zeichnen bestritt. Der begabte Musiker erhielt selbst einige Geigenstunden bei Niccolo Paganini. Unter der Ägide des bekannten Komponisten Anselm Hüttenbrenner arbeitet Lorber als Musiker; sein geistiges Interesse galt allerdings vornehmlich der Theosophie, laut seines Biographen Leitner las er die Schriften von Jakob Böhme, Johann Tennhardt, Emanuel Swedenborg, Johann Heinrich Jung-Stilling und Justinus Kerner. Am 15. März 1840 vernahm Lorber die von ihm als solche bezeichnete "Gnadenstimme des Herrn Jesus Christus", die ihm bis zu seinen Lebensende 20000 Manuskriptseiten mit religiösen Offenbarungen diktierte und teilweise in mehreren Druckschriften veröffentlicht wurden. --- Die berufliche Situation in Graz wurde 1844 für Lorber schwierig; er veränderte sich beruflich zu als Hilfskraft seiner Brüder im kärntnerischen Greifenburg. - "Während seines Verweilens in Oberkärnten bestieg er dort mehrere Hochgebirge, darunter auch den Großglockner, und nahm Skizzen dieser großartigen Gebirgsansichten mit dem Bleistifte auf, welche er später in Graz mit schwarzer Kreide ausführte; und wenn man an die Perspektive nicht strenge Forderungen stellte, so konnte man allerdings anerkennen, daß er auch zur Zeichenkunst, in welcher er nie Unterricht genossen hatte, nicht ohne Naturanlage war" (aus der Biographie Leitners). Mehrere stilistisch sehr ähnliche Blätter dieser Bergbesteigung sind in Online-Präsentationen verschiedener, dem Andenken Jakob Lorbers verpflichteter Gesellschaften zu sehen - im Handel selbst konnte ich allerdings diese Blätter nicht nachweisen. ---- Für Jakob Lorber spielten die Berge in seiner als "Neuoffenbarung" bezeichneten Glaubenslehre eine wichtige Rolle; in dem erst 1901 veröffentlichten Werk "Der Großglockner. Ein Evangelium der Berge" (nach "wörtlichem innerem Diktat" empfangen 1842) beschreibt er fast modern anmutend die natürliche und geistige Bedeutung der Gebirge für den Gesamthaushalt der Natur und den positiven Einfluss von Bergaufenthalten. ---- Bei dem von Lorber mit der Darstellungen Beschenkten mag es sich um einen Bergfreund gehandelt haben: Ein Franz Surtmann, in Graz als Verwaltungsbeamter seit 1822 nachweisbar, ist nach einer Meldung der Tiroler "Volks- und Schützenzeitung" (Jg. 1864, p. 509) am 22. Juli 1864 bei der Besteigung des Großen Pyhrgas in den Ennstaler Alpen wohl an einem Herzinfarkt verstorben. - - - Schmalrandig, ein 4 cm Einriss oben alt hinterlegt, im oberen Bereich fleckig.
