        Les Étoiles

      1849. Grandville?s ?Last Fairy-Tale? [GRANDVILLE, J.J., illustrator]. MÉRY, Joseph. Les Étoiles. Dernière féerie par J.-J. Grandville. Texte par Méry. Astronomie des dames par le Comte Foelix. Paris: G. De Gonet, [n.d., 1849]. First edition. Two parts in one quarto volume (10 1/2 x 7 1/16 inches; 266 x 180 mm.). [4], xvi, 252; [4], 186, [2] pp. With added hand-colored wood-engraved vignette title in each part, hand-colored engraved portrait of Grandville by Ch. Geoffroy, and twelve hand-colored engraved plates (eleven in the first part, one in the second part) by Ch. Geoffroy after Grandville, all with original tissue-guards.Publisher's black cloth, covers and spine pictorially stamped and lettered in in gilt. yellow coated endpapers. Lower hinge expertly and almost invisibly repaired. Small hole in tissue guard of plate facing page 196. The absolute bare minimum of foxing to margins of a few plates otherwise a very fine and fresh example. A wonderful copy of this lovely book, with exquisite plates after Grandville. ?The compositions of this ?last fairy-tale,? brilliantly engraved on steel by Charles Geoffroy and delicately colored, form a fitting memorial to Grandville. They show that his powers remained unimpaired to the end of his short career. Grandville told his wife on the day he began these designs: ?for too long I have kept my eyes lowered to the earth; now I want to lift them to the heavens? (p. ix). The pattern which he follows is similar to that of Les fleurs animées. Nearly every plate has its beautiful lady, clad in white and adorned with stars, looming in the sky, with varied scenes of earthly life below her. These designs, Grandville?s tranquil refuge from the turmoil that beset his mind, are as charming as they are mysterious. Also included in the volume are an unsigned essay, which remains the most considerable source of biographical information about Grandville, and a fine portrait of him by Geoffroy (I, xvi) with a border of his creations, animals paying him tribute as well as his flower- and star-ladies? (Ray). This posthumously published work (Grandville died on March 17, 1847) was originally issued in fifty parts, the first part appearing in September 1849. Ray, The Art of the French Illustrated Book, 200. Vicaire V, col. 770. Grandville. Dessins Originaux, p. 398.

        NARRATIVE OF THE UNITED STATES EXPEDITION TO THE RIVER JORDAN AND THE DEAD SEA WITH MAPS AND NUMEROUS ILLUSTRATIONS.

      Philadelphia: Lee & Blanchard, 1849. 1st edition. Original gilt tooled publisher?s cloth, Large 8vo, 508 pages. Includes 2 fold-out maps and 28 engraved plates. Bound in at the rear is a list of publications by the publisher. The personal Copy of Rebecca Gratz, the most famous observant American Jewish woman of the 19th Century, with her ownership signature on title page with year (1849) . Rebecca Gratz (1781-1869) was a preeminent Jewish American educator and philanthropist. Her parents were observant Jews and active members of Philadelphia?s first synagogue, Mikveh Israel. In 1801, at the age of 20, Rebecca Gratz helped establish the Female Association for the Relief of Women and Children in Reduced Circumstances, which helped women whose families were suffering after the American Revolutionary War. In 1815, after seeing the need for an institution for orphans in Philadelphia, she was among those instrumental in founding the Philadelphia Orphan Asylum. Four years later, she was elected secretary of its Board. She continued to hold this office for forty years. Under Gratz' auspices, a "Hebrew Sunday School" was started in 1838. Gratz became both its superintendent and president and assisted in developing its curriculum, resigning in 1864. Gratz was also one of the founding members of the Female Hebrew Benevolent Society, around November 1819. In 1850, she advocated in The Occident, under the signature A Daughter of Israel, the foundation of a Jewish foster home. Her advocacy was largely instrumental in the establishment of such a home in 1855. She was also involved in the foundation of the Fuel Society and the Sewing Society. Gratz is said to have been the model of Rebecca, the daughter of the Jewish merchant Isaac of York, who is the heroine in the novel ?Ivanhoe, ? by Sir Walter Scott. Scott's attention had been drawn to Gratz's character by Washington Irving, who was a close friend of the Gratz family. The claim has been disputed, but it has also been well sustained in an article entitled "The Original of Rebecca in Ivanhoe", which appeared in The Century Magazine, 1882, pp. 679?682. Gratz never married. Her portrait was painted twice by the noted American artist Thomas Sully. One of those portraits, is on display at the National Museum of American Jewish History. Shortly after Rebecca Gratz died in 1869, her brother, Hyman, founded and financed Gratz College, a teachers? college in Philadelphia, in her memory. Gratz is buried at Mikveh Israel Cemetery in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Very Good Condition. Material signed by Gratz is rare. (AMR-51-2)

        Neu-Südwales. Seine Vergangenheit, Gegenwart und Zukunft, oder Erfahrungen und Beobachtungen während eines zwölfjährigen Aufenthaltes in Australien.Leipzig, Christian Ernst Kollmann, 1850. 8vo. Contemporary half tanned sheepskin.

      Bodi 4717; Engelmann I, p. 241. cf. Ferguson IV, 5137. First edition of the German translation of an emigrant's guide to New South-Wales, Australia. The work was written by John Pattison and published anonymously, based on his own experiences during his twelve year stay in Australia. It was first published in 1849, entitled New South-Wales: its past, present and future condition, with notes upon its resources and capabilities. The short preface states that is was published "with the hope that it may add to the diffusion of truthful information respecting Australia, and the knowledge that is will not mislead" (English edition). It starts with a brief history of "New Holland" and its first settlers, and continues with a description of its population, the high need for skilled labourers, and all kinds of information the emigrant should know before going to Australia. With a library stamp on title-page and the first and last few pages foxed. Otherwise a very good copy.

        Regolamento per gli Aiutanti del Comandante il Forte S. Giorgio.

Delle richieste che saranno fatte in quelle visite tanto per articoli di vitto, quanto per oggetti di uso domestico sarà presa notazione in Registro che si terrà nello scrittoio del Comandante del Forte, e soltanto dietro le indicazioni notate sul Registro stesso sarà fatta dal Comando del Forte la provvista degli oggetti domandati. Gli oggetti stessi, meno il caso di bisogno istantaneo ed urgente, s'intenderanno da consegnarsi alla Famiglia detenuta nella visita successiva a quella a cui ne è stata fatta la domanda. Nella occasione delle visite stesse sarà pura fatto l'intiero servizio [...] sotto l'oculare sorveglianza del Comandante del Forte [...] Sarà inoltre [...] riscontrato [...] lo stato delle inferriate e ferrature del quartiere. Per i bucati sarà provveduto con note a parte [...] Nessuna carta proveniente dal quartiere della Famiglia detenuta si permetterà [...] che passi in mani estranee [...] La mattina alle ore 8 e la sera alle ore 24 sarà fatto un rapporto circostanziato di ciò che è avvenuto alla Commissione Governativa [...] Dalla Stanza d'ordini del Forte li 17 Aprile 1849.

Con firma autografa del Galeotti in fine. Interessantissimo documento che testimonia la relativa durezza del regime carcerario cui fu sottoposta l'intera famiglia Guerrazzi all'indomani del 12 aprile 1849 (durezza di cui si lamenta il Guerrazzi stesso nella sua "Apologia della vita politica", soprattutto nei riguardi della parte femminile della famiglia).

Three volumes, later half morocco, spines faded. Front printed wrappers of vol. 1 & 3 bound in. Pp. lxix-lxx + 2 portraits in volume one were added when printing of this volume had already been completed; these leaves are bound at the beginning. Patrick Gordon (1635-1699) was a Scottish soldier of fortune who became a general in the Russian army and a close friend of Tsar Peter I. He originally enlisted at Hamburg in the Swedish military forces in 1655 and served alternately for Sweden and Poland in the following years. In 1661 he took service in the Russian army, where he enjoyed a very successful military career. During the revolution in Moscow in 1689 Gordon and his troops virtually decided events in the favour of Tsar Peter I, and after this Gordon remained high in the Tsar's favour. General Gordon's diary, written in English, was preserved in the archives of the Imperial Russian foreign office. It was published for the first time in the present German translation. The importance of this diary for the understanding of late seventeenth-century Russia has long been recognised and it is an outstanding source for the reign of Peter the Great.

A chapbook of descriptions of popular games for children, including marbles, skipping rope, tag, kite-flying, see-saw, archery, and most prominently playing ball: "There are a great number of games played with Balls, of which Base-Ball, Trap-Ball, Cricket, Up-Ball, Catch-Ball, and Drive Ball, are the most common." Two of the illustrations depict ball players. There were several works similar to this one in the preceding decade, but they described different games, and this one is important for its relatively early reference to "base-ball."

      Kjøbenhavn: C. A. Reitzel, 1849. First edition. Very Good. First Edition of Kierkegaard?s Brilliant ?Sickness unto Death? KIERKEGAARD, Søren. Sygdommen til Døden. En christelig psychologisk Udvikling til Opbyggelse og Opvækkelse. Af Anti-Climacus. Udgivet af S. Kierkegaard (The Sickness unto Death. A Christian psychological exposition for edification and awakening. By Anit-Climacus. Translated by S. Kierkegaard). Copenhagen, C. A. Reitzel, 1849. 1 blank leaf + TP + [i]-[ii] = Forord + [iii]-[iv] = Indhold + half-title + [1]-136 1 blank leaf, Octavo. First Edition. Himmelstrup 119. The philosophical furthering of his Concept of Dread, this work takes the issue of anxiety beyond the earlier psychological considerations, and engages with the spiritual nature of despair. While anxiety is generated in the encounter with circumstances and is related to the ethical, despair is the anxiety which results from contemplating the eternal. This sickness unto death is marked by the concept of despair. According to Kierkegaard, an individual is "in despair" if he does not align himself with God or God's plan for the self. In this way he loses his self, which Kierkegaard defines as the "relation's relating itself to itself in the relation." Kierkegaard defines humanity as the tension between the "finite and infinite", and the "possible and the necessary", and is identifiable with the dialectical balancing act between these opposing features, the relation. While humans are inherently reflective and self-conscious beings, to become a true self one must not only be conscious of the self but also be conscious of being created by a higher being, God. When one either denies this Self or the Self's creator, one is in despair. CONDITION: Very good+. Quarter-leather with marbled boards, light cracking along hinges.

        Lettre autographe à Gustave Geoffroy.

      St. Pair sur Mer, sans date. Trois pages sur papier quadrillé (17 x 10,5 cm), signée deux fois, enveloppe à l'adresse de Monsieur Gustave Geffroy, administrateur de la Manufacture Nationale des Gobelins. Albert Lebourg (1849-1928), peintre impressionniste normand. Nous sommes au début de la guerre de 1914, le peintre s'est réfugié à Saint-Pair, près de Granville. Lebourg se montre affolé par les nouvelles qu'il reçoit: " ...Que d'évenements déjà, que de batailles, que de morts, que d'héroïsmes et quelle énergie il a fallu pour supporter le choc d'armes formidables et les faire reculer ! " Retiré à cette époque en Normandie, il éprouve un certain regret de n'être pas resté à Paris avec ses amis. Sa santé est précaire, c'est vrai mais " heureux ceux qui ont une mission, qui peuvent travailler encore pour le bien de la Patrie, pour le soulagement de ceux qui souffrent, pour quelque chose d'un peu utile. Oh, je me fais honte de ma veulerie, de ma faiblesse ! .." Il donne des nouvelles de quelques relations communes, dont le Dr. et Madame de Molène avec lesquels il est allé voir une série de ses propres tableaux. Mais Lebourg est obsédé par cette guerre qu'il ne comprend pas et dont il prévoit les prochaines ruines "Cette Allemagne est donc revenue avec plusieurs siècles en arrière. Ne pas avoir eu la connaissance de cet état d'âme d'un peuple est impardonnable; ne pas avoir voulu écouter ceux qui étaient mieux informés et qui criaient gare, ne l'est pas d'avantage. Il y a des illusions qui sont des crimes." En P.S., accusant réception d'une lettre de Geoffroy, Lebourg répond en mettant son atelier de la rue de Clichy à la disposition de Georges Lecomte, l'académicien.

        Millard Fillmore fulfills a request for his autograph!

      Buffalo, November 8, 1849. 7.5" x 9.5". "Autograph Letter Signed, ""Millard Fillmore,"" as Vice President, 1 page, 7.5"" x 9.5"", Buffalo, November 8, 1849, to noted collector Louis Jacob Cist (1818 - 1885) honoring an autograph request. Laid in to a larger sheet, expected folds, very light soiling, else fine. Fillmore writes, in full: ""I am honored by the receipt of your note of the 3d inst. requesting my autograph; which I accord with pleasure but as not deemed worthy of a place in the collection of those distinguished names to which you allude. ""From the library of John Augustin Daly (1838 - 1899). Daly, one of the most important figures in nineteenth-century American theater, worked as a critic, manager, playwright and stage director. At the time of his death, he owned two major theaters, one in New York and the other in London. Daly is considered personally responsible for the careers of such acting greats as John Drew Jr. Maurice Barrymore, Fanny Davenport, Maude Adams, Sara Jewett, Isadora Duncan, Tyrone Power, Sr. and many others. Daly was also an avid book lover and collector, amassing an enormous library of books and original manuscripts. That collection was dispersed in an epic, two-week auction at the American Art Association in New York in March 1900. The present letter was part of an extra-illustrated volume, described in the catalog as a ""Unique copy, with autograph letters of all the Presidents inserted..."" Walter Benjamin, writing in The Collector, described the sale as a ""blaze of glory, due to the total having reached nearly $200,000."" Benjamin attributed the sale's incredible success to ""a small bookseller on 42d street, who appeared at the sale with apparently unlimited cash, and was soon the master of the situation."" That ""small bookseller,"" was George D. Smith (d. 1920), who, up until that time, had been an obscure and unsuccessful book dealer who began his career in 1883 with Dodd & Mead. Smith would dominate the market for the next two decades, working as an agent for some of the wealthiest collectors in the country—most notably Henry E. Huntington, for whom Smith purchased a portion of the Duke of Devonshire Library in 1914 for $1.5 million (American Art Association, Catalogue of the Valuable Literary and Art Property Gathered by the Late Augustin Daly, New York, 1900; The Collector, New York, May 1900, 1-2; Publisher's Weekly, March 13, 1920, 801; Ibid, March 21, 1914, 1008; ""Geo. D. Smith Dies in HIs Book Store, New York Times, March 5, 1928, 13). The extra-illustrated volume of presidents from which this piece derives fetched $850, nearly four times above the going rate for presidential sets at the time. According to Walter Benjamin, Smith quickly resold the volume for $1,000. The collection did not surface again until it appeared in a minor auction in early 2016. (The Collector, New York, May 1900, 1-2)Provenance: John Augustin Daly; American Art Association, New York, March 19, 1900, Lot 3122; George D. Smith, New York."

        NARRATIVE OF THE UNITED STATES EXPEDITION TO THE RIVER JORDAN AND THE DEAD SEA WITH MAPS AND NUMEROUS ILLUSTRATIONS.

      Philadelphia: Lee & Blanchard. 1849. Hardback. 1st edition. Original gilt tooled publisher?s cloth, Large 8vo, 508 pages. Includes 2 fold-out maps and 28 engraved plates. Bound in at the rear is a list of publications by the publisher. The personal Copy of Rebecca Gratz, the most famous observant American Jewish woman of the 19th Century, with her ownership signature on title page with year (1849) . Rebecca Gratz (1781-1869) was a preeminent Jewish American educator and philanthropist. Her parents were observant Jews and active members of Philadelphia?s first synagogue, Mikveh Israel. In 1801, at the age of 20, Rebecca Gratz helped establish the Female Association for the Relief of Women and Children in Reduced Circumstances, which helped women whose families were suffering after the American Revolutionary War. In 1815, after seeing the need for an institution for orphans in Philadelphia, she was among those instrumental in founding the Philadelphia Orphan Asylum. Four years later, she was elected secretary of its Board. She continued to hold this office for forty years. Under Gratz' auspices, a "Hebrew Sunday School" was started in 1838. Gratz became both its superintendent and president and assisted in developing its curriculum, resigning in 1864. Gratz was also one of the founding members of the Female Hebrew Benevolent Society, around November 1819. In 1850, she advocated in The Occident, under the signature A Daughter of Israel, the foundation of a Jewish foster home. Her advocacy was largely instrumental in the establishment of such a home in 1855. She was also involved in the foundation of the Fuel Society and the Sewing Society. Gratz is said to have been the model of Rebecca, the daughter of the Jewish merchant Isaac of York, who is the heroine in the novel ?Ivanhoe, ? by Sir Walter Scott. Scott's attention had been drawn to Gratz's character by Washington Irving, who was a close friend of the Gratz family. The claim has been disputed, but it has also been well sustained in an article entitled "The Original of Rebecca in Ivanhoe", which appeared in The Century Magazine, 1882, pp. 679?682. Gratz never married. Her portrait was painted twice by the noted American artist Thomas Sully. One of those portraits, is on display at the National Museum of American Jewish History. Shortly after Rebecca Gratz died in 1869, her brother, Hyman, founded and financed Gratz College, a teachers? college in Philadelphia, in her memory. Gratz is buried at Mikveh Israel Cemetery in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Very Good Condition. Material signed by Gratz is rare. (AMR-51-2) .

        Le Nouveau monde, journal historique et politique rédigé par Louis Blanc

      Paris, Bureau d'abonnement, Imprimerie de Mme Lacombe 1849 - Demi-bradel, 17 cm x 26 cm, 285 pages - Édition originale - Première série complète N° 1 - 6. Couverture conservée - Bon état. Grand mensuel socialiste de l'exil, publié à Paris mais rédigé à Londres, par Louis Blanc seul dans lequel il expose ses idées en faveur du suffrage universel, d'une chambre législative unique, contre l'institution de la présidence de la République... ainsi que ses ardentes polémiques avec Proudhon, dont le système économique était à l'opposé du sien. Membre du gouvernement provisoire constitué lors des journées révolutionnaires de février 1848, Louis Blanc (1811-1882) proposa la formation d'ateliers sociaux dont l'objectif était d'assurer un emploi aux travailleurs correspondant à leur compétence. Ce projet fut amalgamé par la propagande antisocialiste avec les ateliers nationaux dont la fermeture provoqua les journées révolutionnaires de juin 1848. Jugé comme responsable, malgré ses vives protestations, Louis Blanc s'exila en Grande-Bretagne où il resta vingt-deux ans, jusqu'à la chute du Second Empire.

        [COLLECTION OF FIVE ORIGINAL WATERCOLORS OF PIMA INDIANS AND THEIR LANDS IN ARAVAIPA CANYON, ARIZONA, MADE BY FORTY-NINER ROBERT HART ON HIS JOURNEY TO THE CALIFORNIA GOLD FIELDS]

      [Aravaipa Canyon, Az, 1849. Five original watercolors on card stock, detailed below. A bit of residue on the verso of the images. One drawing with four pin-sized holes. Very good. Each matted and housed in a red morocco backed box. An extraordinary group of watercolors made by a Virginian travelling the Southern Route to the California gold fields in 1849, among the earliest illustrations depicting the Pima Indians of southern Arizona, and showing their lands in the Aravaipa canyons. A very interesting group of five original watercolors showing Pima Indians and their lands in Arizona, made by a young '49er on his way to the California gold fields by the Southern Route. The Southern Route, also called the Gila Trail, was the least travelled overland route by those headed to California in 1849, and original artwork from those overlands is very rare. These watercolors are also notable as being among the earliest images of the Pima Indians of which we are aware. Although unsigned, these watercolors were apparently produced by Robert Hart (b. 1834), whose family owned and operated several gold mines in Spotsylvania and Louisa counties in Virginia in the 1840s. In the summer of 1849, Hart, along with his cousins Andrew Bronaugh and Henry Hart, went west to participate in the California Gold Rush. They went overland, and decided to travel by the Southern Route, also known as the Gila Trail, which took them through New Mexico and Arizona, and through the lands of the Pima and other Indian tribes. The Hart- Bronaugh party passed through southern Arizona in late July, 1849, and arrived at the California gold fields the next month. Robert Hart did not stay long in California, leaving in the fall of 1850. He soured on mining and on living conditions in the mines, and returned to the East Coast by boat and across the Isthmus of Panama. Records from the 1850 census indicate that young Robert was back in Virginia, living with his aunt, Mary Frances Jenkins Holladay at her home, known as "Woodside," in Louisa County. Following Hart's return home from California, he worked with his father, Robert, and his uncle, Colonel James Hart, at the Old Rough and Ready Furnace in Louisa County. After his father's passing Hart moved with his family to Christian County, Kentucky. These watercolors were found at "Woodside" by a Hart- Jenkins family member, and have remained in the family since they were re-discovered. The watercolors are accompanied by typed excerpts from the diary of Robert Hart. These excerpts were included in a family history published by Robert M. Jenkins in 2000. The watercolors included in this collection conform to diary entries made by Hart in the period July 28 to July 31, 1849, when he and his fellows were travelling through Pima lands. The illustrations (all but one untitled) are as follows: 1) Watercolor showing five Pima Indians and an Anglo- American, 5 3/4 x 8 inches. The white man in the picture is seated with his arm resting on a table which also holds an inkwell. Some surmise that it may portray Robert Hart himself, though the figure in the watercolor appears much older than Hart, who was only fifteen when he went west to California. The scene appears to take place inside a Pima tent. Four of the Pima are fully dressed and the illustration wonderfully portrays their clothing and headdresses. The fifth Pima stands with his back to the viewer, wears a simple loin cloth, and holds a long spear. 2) Watercolor showing three horses, one with a rider, passing along a river in a small canyon, 6 x 3 1/4 inches. This illustration has four small pin-sized holes. The rider is on the horse nearest to us, and has a rifle slung across his lap. The horses are shown walking through a shallow stream that passes through a steep- walled canyon. 3) "Glade in Aravipa Canons." Watercolor showing four men setting up camp in a glade in Aravaipa Canyon, 2 5/8 x 4 3/16 inches. This illustration shows a lush glade with four men (three of them seated) depicted in the bottom center of the image. 4) Watercolor showing a narrow passage through a steep canyon, 5 1/4 x 3 3/8 inches. Almost certainly another scene from Aravaipa Canyon, showing the beautiful but difficult terrain through which Hart and his companions passed. 5) Watercolor showing a small waterfall, 4 1/2 x 2 3/4 inches. This image, showing a small trickle of a waterfall, conveys the deep brown tones of the rock walls and the dark green vegetation growing thereon. In his diary entry for July 28, 1849 (a typed transcription of which accompanies the watercolors), Hart wrote of his encounters with the Pima, the type of which appears to be depicted in the first watercolor described above: "We today remained with the Pimos [sic], with whom we have had two trades of mules and horses. And our camp has been thronged with them all day with various articles for trade....The Chief has been to see us. They none of them wear any clothing, only around the hips, and their skin is sun proof. For it is far hotter than ever I felt and has, from the heat of the sand, blistered my feet through my shoes." Another of Hart's diary entries, from a few days before, may well relate to the scene depicted in watercolor number two, above: "Our trail takes us down this branch and, after following it 15 or more miles, we again reached the river. How unlike we left it! From flat land about it, the rocks had taken place and there was nothing but mountains of rock or incredible height binding it in."

        Corrispondenza politica.

      Assieme di circa 60 ff. manoscritti di diversi formati, 1849 - in folio (mm 320x220), legatura della fine del XIX in mezza pelle e percallina verde ai piatti, titolo in oro al dorso ''Corrispondenza politica''. Si tratta di una serie di riflessioni e minute del Conte Francesco Bulgarini Visconti su alcuni fatti politici intercorsi tra la fine del 1848 e il 1849 a cominciare dalla presa di Milano da parte di radetzky; i primo 12 ff. sono, ad esempio, una sorta di diario cronologico commentato dei primi mesi dell'anno. Particolarmente interessante che siano conservate le lettere di amici e parenti del Bulgarini, tra cui quelle dell'avvocato milanese Agostino Zanella, di alcuni suoi cugini di casa Visconti e di Giuseppe Campori, assieme alle sue minute di risposta, permettendo così una visione d'insieme della corrispondenza. Sono allegati anche alcuni fogli volanti di argomento politico annotati dal conte. Appartenente probabilmente al ramo dei Visconti dei Marchesi di Borgoalto, al momento attuale non abbiamo reperito ulteriori notizie sul Bulgarini, trasferitosi nel corso del 1849, forse per ragioni politiche, da Genova a Nizza. Interessante documento storico. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Layard's interest in Nineveh began when he met the French consul Emil Botta in Mosul. Botta had been excavating the mounds opposite the city, which marked the site of the ruins of Nineveh, and Layard visited the site. Layard met the British ambassador to Turkey, Stratford Canning, who employed him as an unofficial traveller. Canning was interested in archaeology, and Layard's description of the mounds at Nineveh prompted him to finance his own expedition, superintended by Layard. The expeditions took place in 1846 and 1847, and were eventually part sponsored by the trustees of the British Museum. Hence, many of the sculptures were transported to England for the British Museum. (ODNB). Atabely 686 & 688. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        De libertate apud Kantium (précieux exemplaire de René Sémelaigne)

      Paris, E. Thunot 1849 - In-8° broché, couverture d'attente de l'époque, 46 pages. Thèse de doctorat de philosophie de Barni ayant appartenu à René Sémelaigne, le grand historien de la psychiatrie française avec le cachet gras de sa bibliothèque sur la page de titre. Jules Romain Barni, né à Lille (Nord) le 1er juin 1818 et mort à Mers-les-Bains (Somme) le 4 juillet 1878, était un philosophe et un homme politique français, député de la Somme. Il était le fils d'un opticien d'origine italienne. Après de brillantes études commencées au collège royal d'Amiens et terminées au collège Rollin à Paris, il fut admis, en 1837, à l'École normale supérieure. Il en sortit, en 1840, premier à l'agrégation de philosophie, et fut nommé quelque temps professeur au collège de Reims. Il revint ensuite à Paris, et Victor Cousin, qui préparait alors une édition personnelle de ses premiers cours, se l'attacha comme secrétaire. La connaissance approfondie de la langue allemande qu'avait le jeune agrégé rendit sa collaboration particulièrement précieuse au philosophe universitaire, qui n'avait jamais lu Kant dans le texte. Jules Barni en profita lui-même pour étudier plus à fond la doctrine du penseur allemand, dont il songea dès lors à publier une traduction française. Après être resté une année seulement auprès de Cousin, de 1841 à 1842 ¿ c'était la durée habituelle de ces fonctions de secrétaire, récompense en quelque sorte consacrée du premier rang à l'agrégation de philosophie ¿ il se fit recevoir docteur ès lettres, tout en enseignant successivement la philosophie au Lycée Louis-le-Grand, au Lycée Charlemagne, au Lycée impérial Bonaparte, en même temps qu'il commençait la publication de sa grande traduction de Kant. Il donnait également de nombreux articles à une revue libérale, la Liberté de penser, fondée par Jules Simon à la fin de 1847, et qui était devenue, en 1848, nettement républicaine. Il devint aussi en 1848 vice-président de la Société démocratique des libres penseurs. Ses articles, dont l'un était intitulé le Suffrage universel et l'instruction primaire, excitèrent bientôt la défiance du pouvoir. En 1850, tombé en disgrâce, il fut brusquement envoyé de Paris au lycée de Rouen. Il se rendit à son nouveau poste, mais un peu plus tard, lorsque le Coup d'État du 2 décembre 1851 imposa aux fonctionnaires l'obligation de prêter le serment de fidélité, il refusa. Il fut considéré, avec plusieurs autres, comme ayant donné sa démission de professeur, et fut exclu de l'enseignement. Paul Janet écrivit : « Il avait alors, sans être marié, tous les devoirs de la famille : un père aveugle, une nièce orpheline, qu'il dut élever ». À cette occasion, il lia connaissance avec Henri Brisson, avec qui il co-fonda le journal l'Avenir. Il se consacra alors à la philosophie de Kant qu'il se donna pour mission, par ses ouvrages, d'introduire en France. Il publia des traductions de divers ouvrages du philosophe allemand, avec des analyses critiques très développées, où, parlant en son nom propre, il exprimait hautement ses espérances démocratiques. Il collabora en outre avec d'autres universitaires insermentés, Étienne Vacherot, Frédéric Morin, Eugène Despois, Albert Le Roy à divers recueils périodiques d'opposition : la Revue de Paris, l'Avenir, et toujours à la Liberté de penser. Exilé à Genève, il fut appelé, en 1861, par le régime radical à enseigner l'histoire et la philosophie à l'académie de cette ville, où il remplaça un autre exilé, Victor Chauffour. Il occupa cette situation jusqu'en 1870. Plusieurs de ses ouvrages, Les Martyrs de la libre-pensée, Napoléon Ier et son historien M. Thiers, Histoire des idées morales et politiques en France, La Morale dans la démocratie ne sont que le résumé de ses idées exposées par lui dans ses cours de Genève. En 1867, fortement influencé par les principes de Kant, il organisa et présida le premier congrès de la Paix et de la Liberté à Genève. À l'issue de ces assises, il devint l'un des fondateurs et dirigeants de la Ligue internationa [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        I Misteri di Torino scritti da una penna in quattro mani

      presso Claudio Perrin, 1849. In-4° (258x165mm), pp. 587, (1) di errata, (4) di indici, legatura coeva m. pelle marrone con titolo, filetti e fregi in oro al dorso e piatti marmorizzati. 74 litografie f.t. realizzate da vari incisori (Perrin, Lunck, Vergnano, Verginio), di cui una all'antiporta. Testo entro doppio filetto tipografico. Qualche fisiologica fioritura. Ottimo esemplare. Edizione originale di questo anonimo romanzo popolare - l'autore non è mai stato identificato con certezza, ma, dall'indicazione del titolo, sappiamo che esso fu vergato a quattro mani - avente come sfondo la Torino dell'età risorgimentale. L'Italia fu particolarmente prolifica di romanzi imitati più o meno abilmente dal fortunatissimo quanto letterariamente mediocre feuilleton dei "Misteri di Parigi" di Sue. Ci furono, fra gli altri, I Misteri di Roma Contemporanea di B. Del Vecchio (1851-53), I Misteri di Palermo di Benedetto Naselli (1852), I Misteri di Livorno Di Cesare Monteverde (1853-54), I Misteri di Firenze. Scene Moderne di Angiolo Panzani (1854), I Misteri di Firenze di Carlo Lorenzini (1857), I Misteri di Genova. Cronache Contemporanee di Anton Giulio Barrili (1867-70), e, appunto, questi Misteri di Torino, tutti accomunati da un interesse storico e sociologico del tutto extraletterario. Tuttavia, questo non fu l'unico "mistero" letterario di ambientazione torinese; nel 1871-72 apparvero, infatti, presso il Mattirolo di Torino, altri e distinti "Misteri di Torino", questa volta firmati, e dovuti alla penna di Arturo Colombi. Scrive Pier Massimo Prosio: "Il '48 torinese in letteratura ha avuto rari per non dire inesistenti riscontri...Il libro torinese si distingue già per la data, 1849, assai tempestiva a paragone con quella degli analoghi romanzi di altre città italiane, tutti più tardi (il romanzo di Sue era apparso in volume nel 1843, la prima traduzione italiana è del 1848)". I "misteri" del libro sono eminentemente "misteri politici", infarciti di notazioni antigesuite derivate dal giobertiano "Gesuita Moderno" (i Gesuiti sono individuati come i principali responsabili dei mali della società subalpina) e di accenti di viva simpatia per la sinistra radicale. "Dopo un preambolo di cui è protagonista Santorre di Santarosa a Sfacteria, le vicende narrate nel romanzo hanno inizio nel settembre 1847, e si concludono con la battaglia d Custoza del luglio 1848, ma con un accenno alla definitiva sconfitta del marzo seguente a Novara e all'esilio di Carlo Alberto ad Oporto", prosegue il Prosio, rilevando come le litografie che illustrano il libro non siano affatto spregevoli per accortezza descrittiva e documentaria. Manca al Manno e al Passano. Sull'opera, Pier Massimo Prosio in Bibliofilia Subalpina, Quaderno 2000, pp. 43-50. Riccardo Reim, L'Italia dei Misteri. Storie di vita e malavita nei romanzi d'appendice, Roma, 1989 (data l'opera al 1861, riferendosi ad una successiva edizione). Italiano

        Etudes sur l'état actuel de la marine et des colonies françaises, par Louis Estancelin, Ancien Député, Membre d ela Commission supérieure de l'établissement des Invalides de la marine, Président honoraire de la Société maritime de Paris.

      Paris, Vve Le Normant, Garnier frères, 1849. 1849 1 vol. in-8° (221 x 143 mm.) de : xxxi, 497 pp. Demi-veau vert d'époque, dos à quatre nerfs, pièce de titre de maroquin rouge, plats recouverts de papier marbré, gardes de papier marbré. (Quelques rousseurs éparses.) Première et seule édition de ce rare ouvrage dû à Louis Estancelin (1777-1858) sur la marine et les colonies françaises. Louis Estancelin est essentiellement connu pour avoir été l'inspecteur général des eaux et forêts (1802-1814) puis gestionnaire du domaine et des forêts du comté d'Eu (jusqu'en 1855), et rédigea des travaux d'histoire locale sur ce comté. Il fut également député de la Somme de 1830 à 1846, soutenant la Monarchie de Juillet. Le présent ouvrage se compose de deux parties : la première, dédiée à la marine, donne une histoire de son administration, l'état actuel de la flotte. L'auteur y touche au problème de l'approvisionnement des arsenaux, et notamment de la pénurie des bois de construction que l'on pourrait trouver en Guyane ou en Corse. La seconde partie est consacrée à la colonisation et aux colonies, et donne la situation actuelle des établissements français en Amérique, Océanie, Asie et Afrique, avec quelques "Observations sur l'île de Corse". Bel exemplaire. 1 vol. 8vo. Contemporary half calf. First and only edition of this scarce work by Louis Estancelin (1777-1858) on the French Navy and the French colonies. It is organized in two parts: the first dedicated to Navy, gives the history of its administration, and the contemporary state of the fleet. The second is dedicated to the colonies in America, Oceania, Asia and Africa, with observations on Corsica. Fine copy. Polak, 3201.
