Jewett, 1852. 8vos., bound in beautiful black, full-morocco leather bindings, top edges gilt, gilt-tooled spines.

        Géographie du moyen Age, étudiée par Joachim Lewelel.

      Bruxelles: Pilliet, 1852-1854-, 1857. Four parts text bound in one volume, with epilogue and atlas volumes, the latter oblong folio; 18 plates (some folding) in the text volumes, 50 plates (see note) in the atlas volume, excellent impressions of all the plates; the three volumes differently bound: recent quarter morocco with green boards (text); early crimson pebbled cloth, modern half green morocco over marbled boards (atlas). First edition, with the full suite of lithographic plates, depicting any number of famous and important early maps, by a 'pioneer writer on cartography' (Tooley). This is one of the most important - and eccentric - early studies of the geography of the Middle Ages and early Renaissance, and is only rarely seen complete with its folio atlas and the particularly uncommon epilogue volume of 1857.Lelewel's comprehensive intensive study of classical Greek, Latin and Arab sources, with each of the intricately engraved plates prepared by the author himself, includes the accounts of navigators, pilots and voyagers, and his scholarship makes it a significant source for cartography and the history of travel. The work is wide in scope, and whether Lelewel is discussing the foundations of modern Ptolemaic geography, the peregrinations of the Jewish scholar Benjamin of Tudele, or the great fourteenth-century Arab expeditions of Ibn Battuta, his synthesis of the field is magisterial.Lelewel was a Polish historian, educated at the Imperial University of Vilna. Although of Prussian descent, he became an ardent nationalist and his lectures on Polish history galvanised the country. One of the rebels of the November Uprising against the Russian authorities in 1830, he went into exile in Paris soon after the rebellion was suppressed, and was soon after forced to leave France for Brussels at the explicit request of the Russian Ambassador. A friend of Marx and Engels, he was a political agitator throughout his life.The plate count is complex, but the present example has the full complement. The folio atlas has 50 plates, as required: 49 are full page lithographs, while the remaining map (plate 47) is tipped on to the title-page, as instructed in the plate listing (this has caused some confusion among bibliographers; Howes, for example, lists "49" plates only). The question of the smaller plates for the text volumes has also been confused: Graesse calls for 12 plates, but the listing does not include the epilogue volume; Leclerc, who does notice the epilogue, calls for only 14 plates in total; Sabin does not list the smaller plates; and lastly, Howes lists 18 plates. This example with 18 & 50 plates, then, corresponds to the largest number of plates recorded by any of the bibliographers. A little frayed at spine epilogue.

        Cenni sul Museo Civico di Milano ed Indice sistematico dei Rettili ed Anfibi...

      Milano: Giacomo Pirola, 1857. Large octavo, large folding plan, 61 pp.; in neat modern green paper boards. Complete with the large folding plan, which gives a detailed overview of a collection of international significance, and one which included one of the most important early collections of Australian snakes and reptiles.A rare publication describing in detail the natural history collections of Milan, and particularly the collection of Reptiles and Amphibians.The Milan Natural History Museum was founded in 1838 by naturalists Giuseppe de Cristoforis and Giorgio Jan, who donated their private collections in order to make a new collection on the newest scientific principles. The Museum opened in 1844 with Jan, an important herpetologist, botanist and naturalist, as the first Director.An interesting and very modern feature of the museum, described at page 11, was the design of the labels of the specimens. The frame of every label of every species was coloured with a different colour according to the Continent to which each species belongs (Asia was yellow, for example, while Oceania was blue).Sadly the collection endured almost comprehensive losses during the Second World War when it was bombed in 1943, which does make such printed guides even more significant as a reflection on what has been lost.This guide, the first such published, includes a detailed description of the museum (pp. 1-25); an introduction to the scientific designation of reptiles and amphibians (pp. 27-33); and a detailed list of the specimens held in Milan (pp. 35-61). Of the actual specimens, the Museum had approximately 400 mammals, 1900 birds, a genuinely impressive 950 reptiles (which would have made it one of the preeminent collections in the world), and 900 fish. Included in this number are a great quantity of Australian and Pacific species: of reptiles, 39 from Australia, 1 from Tasmania, and 3 from New Zealand, together with 10 Australian amphibians. The museum also hosted any number of more familiar Australian birds and animals such as the Thylacine, platypus, echidna and many birds. Some spotting but a very good copy.

        D'Albert's Album 1857.

      Chappell & Co. London. 1857. - Gift book, 14 x 10 inches, 136 pp. featuring music by Charles D'Albert and chromolithographic plates by John Brandard. Covers detached; heavy wear to extremities. Leather spine peeling and abraded. Decorative embossed cover with gilt lettering and decorative embellishments (overall light soiling and wear). Volume contains music for eighteen musical compositions by D'Albert with four (of five) chromolithographic plates after Brandard (with possible additional hand coloring) plus title page and gift presentation page also by Brandard; all six of the exquisite plates were printed by M. & N. Hanhart. Contents in good clean condition. The four large color plates in this volume represent illustrations used for cover art when D'Albert's compositions were published and sold individually. Space at the top and bottom of the chromo illustrations, left blank as published in the Album, would have been utilized in the sheet music's solo edition for printing the composition's title at top and, at bottom, publisher details. As preserved in the Album, the four chromolithographic plates (plus title and presentation pages) are in near mint condition. D'Albert's music with Brandard's illustrations are quite scarce in Album format. The four plates illustrate The Queen's Valse (a young Queen Victoria); Estelle (plate not present); St. Petersburg Quadrille (spelled on the Contents page as Petersburgh); The Sybil Valse; the Savoyard Polka. An uncommon publication with condition issues noted. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Carteggio di pittori e scultori operanti tra la fine dell'800 e gli inizi del '900 con Enrico Emilio Ximenes (1857-1923), storico e letterato responsabile del Museo dei Mille di Bologna, già direttore del giornale demoratico palermitano «Il Vespro», fervente garibaldino. Sono 15 autografi di 9 artisti che presentiamo come lotto:

      1857. a) BAZZARO, Ernesto (1859-1937), scultore, autore di numerosi marmi nel Cimitero di Milano e di monumenti pubblici. L.a.f., 1 p. in-4, Milano, 9 luglio 1908. Spiacente «che il gesso del monumento a F. Nullo in Bergamo donato al Comitato, sfortunatamente nel trasportarlo colà andò tutto in frantumi, per modo che non esiste più». b) BOITO, Camillo (1836-1914), architetto e scrittore, fratello di Arrigo. Bigl. con linee a.f., Milano, 30 aprile 1909: «Ringrazio ma non mi lascio più mettere in Comitati onorari. Devo quindi rinunciare ad entrare in quello dell'Esposizione donatelliana». c) BUTTI, Enrico (1847-1932), scultore in una prima fase impressionista, influenzato dai modi di C. Grandi e T. Cremona, successivamente di impronta verista («Il minatore», 1887). Insegnò all'Accademia di Brera. L. datt. f., 1 p. in-8, Milano, 4 maggio 1909. «.. mi duole dichiarare (al Comitato donatelliano) che le mie occupazioni sono tali da non ptere assicurare per eventuali bisogni dell'opera mia.. ». d) CALZOLARI, Oreste. L.a.f., 1 p. in-4, 2 luglio 1906: «Il bozzetto del monumento inaugurato a Fiesole ..è molto piccolo (1/25 del vero) e dal monumento alquanto diverso. Se queste cose non sono di ostacolo, sarò lietissimo di donarlo per il Museo dei Mille.. ». (Unitamente a:) L.a.f., 1 p. in-8,13 settembre (1)908. «Anche per la mia qualità di garibaldino, gradirò intervenire all'inaugurazione del Museo (di Bologna)». e) CASCIARO, Giuseppe (1863-1949), pittore, partecipò a importanti esposizioni internazionali [Parigi, Bruxelles, Monaco (1905)]. Due lettere autografe che peccano di immodestia: L.a.f., 4 pp. in-8, Napoli Antignano 16 giugno 1910: «.. appunto perché sono maestro di pittura di S. M. la nostra Regina e di S. A. R. Vera di Montenegro» per accettare l'invito alla mostra collettiva all'Esposizione di Cettigne « vorrei sottoporle alcune condizioni: una sala riservata solo a me decentemente decorata; spese di trasporto delle opere a carico del Comitato; che mi siano conferiti i massimi premi : .. data la mia posizione che la nostra Corte stessa mi ha creato, non credo di essere troppo esigente». L.a.f., 3 pp. in-8, Ischia, 10 agosto 1910. Ancora a proposito della Esposizione a Cettigne: «.. raccomando l'addobbo decoroso della sala mia che dovrà raccogliere solo i miei pastelli .. Data la mia posizione di maestro di S. M. la nostra Regina e di S. A. R. la Principessa Vera, io dovrò emergere su tutti. So che voi siete magna pars». f) JERACE, Francesco (1854-1936), scultore di solida formazione, oscillò tra accademismo e realismo estremo. Noti i suoi busti femminili. 2 cart. ill.f. e 2 lett. a.f. (di cui una del 17 ottobre 1909) di saluti e auguri in riferimento ad opere del Museo dei Mille di Bologna. «Non mi sono dimenticato del gesso che vi promisi.. ». g) MATANIA, Fortunino (1881-1963), illustratore e pittore, collaborò a riviste italiane e straniere («L'Illustrazione Italiana», « The Graphic», « The Sphere»). L.a.f., 2 pp. in-8, list, lutto. 18 dicembre 1909. Sulla quarta schizzo a penna di (auto?)ritratto. «Mi giunge un biglietto firmato E. Ximenes, ora, tra gli E. Ximenes ve n 'è uno Eduardo, il quale ha mostrato di essere il peggiore dei nemici e dei denigratori miei e della mia famiglia. Stante la cosa a questo punto non si troverà strano che, almeno per salvare la forma, io desideri di sapere prima d'aver l'onore di un incontro chi è degli E. Ximenes che mi scrive e che cosa si possa desiderare da me». h) NOMELLINI, Plinio (1866-1943), pittore, allievo di G. Fattori, amico di G. Pascoli e di G. Puccini. Dopo un esordio macchiaiolo, si volse a esperienze simboliste e divisioniste. 2 cart. post, f. a) Viareggio, 21.12.09 «.. stringiamo dunque l'affare. Il quadro col bambino nudo dal titolo: Baci di sole L. mille. L'altro col titolo La siesta L. 800..»: b) Viareggio 27.1.X (1910) «Pregola farmi sapere perché la cassa mia di ritorno sia gravata di L. 24 da sborsare per ritirarla. La cifra mi sembra enorme». i) ZOCCHI, Arnaldo (1862-1940), scultore, autore di numerosi monumenti: Piero della France- sca, Garibaldi, lo Zar Alessandro II, Michelangelo. E' sua una delle Vittorie del monumento a Vittorio Emanuele II a Roma. L.a.f., 1 p. in-8, (Roma) «28 giugno 1906, relativa al bozzetto del monumento di Garibaldi a Bologna.

        Soyer's Culinary Campaign Being Historical Reminiscences Of The Late War With The Plain Art Of Cookery For Military And Civil Institutions, The Army, Navy, Public, Etc.

      G. Routledge & Co., London 1857 - 597 pages. 19 x 13 cm. Rebound. Book plate, on front free end paper - "Margaret Allen Hall Memorial - The Finer Arts of Home Making, Battle Creek College, Presented by: Lenna F. Cooper". This book brings together three culinary figures from two different continents and time. Alexis Soyer was a chef and entrepreneur, originally from France, whose life was filled with some pretty extraordinary twists and turns. Soyer cooked in the French noble kitchens on the eve of an uprising, then found his way to England, cooked and designed kitchens and kitchen appliances, wrote cookbooks, and reorganized the cooking facilities in Crimea during the Crimean War; this book being the culmination of those endeavors. Jump to America in the early 1900's and we find Lenna F. Cooper, a dietitian who worked under Ella Kellogg at Battle Creek's Sanitarium, was the dean of home economics at Battle Creek College and in 1930 became the food service director of Michigan State University, also becoming the chief dietitian at Montefiore Hospital in New York City. Cooper wrote the book The New Cookery with her fellow Battle Creek Sanitarium dietitian, Margaret Allen Hall. Inscription on verso of front cover in pen - "Presented by Lenna F. Cooper." Orig. rebound embossed red boards, illustration in gilt. Good [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        ALS, partially missing, to M.D. Hunter of Anton's Hill, Coldstream, in Berwick.

      Sydney: date missing, but April, 1857. Single leaf of wove paper, 268 x 208 mm. comprising the last page of a letter and address panel verso; blue NSW sixpence stamp and other postmarks. Sadly missing the first sheet, this is nonetheless a substantial fragment of an interesting letter written and signed by Donaldson while serving as the treasurer of New South Wales: "the turmoil and harassing wear & tear of political life in a Colony is rather too high a price to pay for the distinction, such as it is."Sir Stuart Alexander Donaldson (1812-1867) first arrived in Sydney in 1835 and quickly established himself as one of the exclusives centred around the Macarthur family. A founding member of the Australian Club, a trustee of the Port Phillip Association, and a member of the Senate of the University of Sydney. His great claim to fame, however, is that he was the first Premier of New South Wales, having eventually gained the position after the 1856 election. 'In the first elections under responsible government Donaldson was returned for Sydney Hamlets to the Legislative Assembly... Hitherto he had worked with so many factions that one Sydney paper was at a loss to discover his political principles' (ADB). Donaldson was narrowly able to form government in June 1856, but his position fast became untenable, and the ministry resigned on 25 August. In October he was defeated in the Sydney Hamlets but elected unopposed for the South Riding of Cumberland.The letter is written to Matthew D. Hunter of "Anton's Hill", a property in Coldstream, Berwick (south-east of Edinburgh, near the border with England). The connection to Hunter is not immediately clear (Donaldson's family came from Lancashire, his wife's from Cumberland), but the two men were evidently close as this is an unburdened and personal letter. It starts with a broken off sentence, "... then I shall be perfectly satisfied to 'hang up the fiddle & bow, to lay down the shovel & the hoe' - so far as child begetting is concerned." The letter also discusses with pride Donaldson's political life, noting that "I was Premier (the first) when the speech from the throne was written and delivered by a responsible ministry; and I made the first Budget speech in the Colony as Treasurer, un beau succès... if I am at home I don't believe I should be satisfied unless I could get into the House of Commons."The letter concludes with this regards to Mrs. Hunter, and also Sir Grey and Lady Douglas, as well as commenting on the sad death of a son of Baily of Mellitain (sp?), "unfortunately drowned by falling (or jumping) overboard from the Hunter River Steamer... " Very good condition.

Corrected from the start of the print run, this printing error only remains in an absolutely tiny number of copies.  This copy is enriched with a manuscript correction by Baudelaire, who has crossed out the "e" and added an "a" in the margin, as if correcting proofs.This printing error, not in the corrected proofs in the collection of the Bibliotheque National de France, was due to the printers, who introduced a number of errors into this first quire, most of which were spotted before printing by Baudelaire, as this letter to Poulet-Malassis attests: "I have just received the first leaf. I hope it's not been printed, because your workmen have introduced new faults into it, like for example 'points' for 'poings', and so on."The error in "s'enhardissant" must have escaped his notice in the first instance and was not corrected till after printing had commenced.Baudelaire immediately corrected this error on the first copies he received - in pencil, as was his habit - before having the type corrected. After they had finished printing, he went on to find seven other faults one after the other, which he also corrected by hand on some copies as and when he found them.The bibliographies generally have "s'enhardissant" as the only error corrected during the printing process itself, but our copy also has other particularities which do not appear in most of the 1,300 copies of the first edition.For instance, on the verso of the half-title, there are four elements that are present on our copy which were successively to disappear during the course of printing:- "Les Editeurs" has an accent on the 'E'.- There is a space between "Ils poursuivront" and the comma that follows it.  - "toutes contrefaçons et toutes traductions" would later become "toutes contrefaçons et traductions".- "Les traits" does not yet have a capital letter.   The typographic corrections did not appear all at the same time. Thus, some copies have all these characteristics except the space before the comma, while others are entirely corrected, but with the space reinstated and another space inserted after "Lois" (which serves to order the typographic layout of the page).The title page also has several more or less marked variants:- The absence of the full stop and final bracket after "Les tragiques, liv.II", which characterizes this copy, was corrected on many others.- The space between the "4" and the comma in Poulet-Malassis' address is not yet present in this first impression, but would appear in other copies independently of the previous correction.- Finally, the spacing of the characters in the publisher's name differs according to title page. On ours, "libraires-éditeurs" ends level with the final "B" of "Broise"; while on other title pages, it finishes before the "B" or, by contrast, halfway along the "R".   The other copies we have consulted do not show a homogeneity of corrections, and one can see several states of the title page, with one or more corrections.A thorough analysis of these changes remains, therefore, to be undertaken. Let us merely say that the copies on Hollande that we have seen show the same typographic characteristics as ours, except for the error in "s'enhardissant".Let us also add that, contrary to the bibliographical information in current usage, the covers do not show differences other than the ones described by Carteret, first and foremost. Some of the errors that have appeared on the title page of this copy are indeed found on some covers, mostly on those of the so-called "third state", which seems always to be present on first impression copies, like those on Hollande (whose only difference with this "third state" is the price - 6fr instead of 3fr - marked on the back).   The covers having been printed after the main body of the work - if Baudelaire's letters are to be believed - it is hard to draw conclusions about this correlation between the first issue and the third state of the cover; but it does open the way to certain hypotheses.Might we suppose that the succession of states is not as we believe it to be and that, like the first quire, the errors were not corrected during printing but, quite the contrary, "introduced" by the workers at the press?A number of questions remain up in the air surrounding the printing and distribution of this work, despite its important place within French literature. Thus, non-expurgated copies are often presented as copies sold before Poulet-Malassis' "ridiculous surgical intervention" (to borrow a phrase from Baudelaire) on the 200 copies still available. In actual fact, Baudelaire's correspondence, like that of Poulet-Malassis, reveals that sales were far less galloping and most of the copies were quite simply pulled and "put away somewhere safe" by the author and the publisher. "Quick, hide - but hide well! - the whole of the edition; you must have 900 copies still unbound. There are another hundred at Lanier's; they seemed quite taken aback that I wanted to save 50; I put them in a safe place... There are 50 left, then, to feed Justice, that Hound of Hell!" Baudelaire wrote to Poulet-Malassis on the 11th July 1857. The publisher, too, swung into action by spreading his stock around various "accomplices", including Asselineau, to whom he wrote on the 13th July: "Baudelaire wrote me an urgent letter that I received yesterday, in which he informed me of the seizure. I want to see him before I believe it, but in any event we've taken some precautions. THE COPIES ARE SAFE and thanks to your good will, we will be sending by rail today a case with 200 copies still unbound, which I would ask you to keep until my next visit... "We have found no trace of these copies, placed in storage, then being brought back into commercial circulation. Could one draw a link between these unbound copies and the various states of the cover, for which we do not really know the reason (corrections being almost entirely insignificant)? Could these copies have been put back into circulation intact, despite the verdict?The rarity of copies of the first edition of les Fleurs du Mal would lead one to suspect that the unsold copies that were not subjected to censure disappeared, at least in part. That said, the enormous importance of this work has made it, right from the start, one of the most universally sought-after bibliographical items (a note on Poulet-Malassis' copy reveals that the prices of copies on Hollande multiplied by six in barely a few months) and therefore most difficult to acquire.Copies of the first impression - ours with an error corrected by the poet himself - in prestigious signed bindings are, after the few on Hollande and inscribed copies, the rarest and most prestigious state of this founding work of modern poetry.  Poulet-Malassis & De Broise Paris 1857 122x195mm relié sous étui

        Géographie du moyen Age, étudiée par Joachim Lewelel.

      Bruxelles: Pilliet, 1852-1854-, 1857. Four parts text bound in one volume, with epilogue and atlas volumes, the latter oblong folio; 18 plates (some folding) in the text volumes, 50 plates (see note) in the atlas volume, excellent impressions of all the plates; the three volumes differently bound: recent quarter morocco with green boards (text); early crimson pebbled cloth, modern half green morocco over marbled boards (atlas). First edition, with the full suite of lithographic plates, depicting any number of famous and important early maps, by a 'pioneer writer on cartography' (Tooley). This is one of the most important - and eccentric - early studies of the geography of the Middle Ages and early Renaissance, and is only rarely seen complete with its folio atlas and the particularly uncommon epilogue volume of 1857.Lelewel's comprehensive intensive study of classical Greek, Latin and Arab sources, with each of the intricately engraved plates prepared by the author himself, includes the accounts of navigators, pilots and voyagers, and his scholarship makes it a significant source for cartography and the history of travel. The work is wide in scope, and whether Lelewel is discussing the foundations of modern Ptolemaic geography, the peregrinations of the Jewish scholar Benjamin of Tudele, or the great fourteenth-century Arab expeditions of Ibn Battuta, his synthesis of the field is magisterial.Lelewel was a Polish historian, educated at the Imperial University of Vilna. Although of Prussian descent, he became an ardent nationalist and his lectures on Polish history galvanised the country. One of the rebels of the November Uprising against the Russian authorities in 1830, he went into exile in Paris soon after the rebellion was suppressed, and was soon after forced to leave France for Brussels at the explicit request of the Russian Ambassador. A friend of Marx and Engels, he was a political agitator throughout his life.The plate count is complex, but the present example has the full complement. The folio atlas has 50 plates, as required: 49 are full page lithographs, while the remaining map (plate 47) is tipped on to the title-page, as instructed in the plate listing (this has caused some confusion among bibliographers; Howes, for example, lists "49" plates only). The question of the smaller plates for the text volumes has also been confused: Graesse calls for 12 plates, but the listing does not include the epilogue volume; Leclerc, who does notice the epilogue, calls for only 14 plates in total; Sabin does not list the smaller plates; and lastly, Howes lists 18 plates. This example with 18 & 50 plates, then, corresponds to the largest number of plates recorded by any of the bibliographers. A little frayed at spine epilogue.
