        Atala, Rene

      Paris - A. Quantin, Imprimeur-Editeur, 1882. Paris - A. Quantin, Imprimeur-Editeur, 1882 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A leather bound copy with gilt titles to spine and marbled paper covered boards. Three works by Chateaubriand; Atala, Rene and Le Dernier Abencerage. The work is illustrated with portrait frontispiece and further plates and in text illustrations within. Franois-Ren, vicomte de Chateaubriand (September 4, 1768 July 4, 1848) was a French writer, politician and diplomat. He is considered the founder of Romanticism in French literature. Chateaubriand was educated in Dol, Rennes and Dinan. For a time he could not make up his mind whether he wanted to be a naval officer or a priest, but at the age of seventeen, he decided on a military career and gained a commission as a second lieutenant in the French Army based at Navarre. Within two years, he had been promoted to the rank of captain. He visited Paris in 1788 where he made the acquaintance of Jean-Franois de La Harpe, Andr Chnier, Louis-Marcelin de Fontanes and other leading writers of the time. When the French Revolution broke out, Chateaubriand was initially sympathetic, but as events in Paris became more violent he decided to journey to North America in 1791. This experience would provide the setting for his exotic novels Les Natchez (written between 1793 and 1799 but published only in 1826), Atala (1801) and Ren (1802). His vivid, captivating descriptions of nature in the sparsely settled American Deep South were written in a style that was very innovative for the time and spearheaded what would later become the Romantic movement in France. Later scholarship has cast doubt on Chateaubriand's claim that he had been granted an interview with George Washington. Appointed secretary of the legation to the Holy See by Napoleon, he accompanied Cardinal Fesch to Rome. But the two men soon quarrelled and Chateaubriand was nominated as minister to Valais (in Switzerland). He resigned his post in disgust after Napoleon ordered the execution of the Duc d'Enghien in 1804. Chateaubriand was now forced to earn his living from his literary efforts. He planned to write an epic in prose, Les Martyrs, set during the Roman persecution of early Christianity. As part of his research for the book, in 1806 Chateaubriand visited Greece, Asia Minor, Palestine, Egypt and Spain. The notes he made on his travels would later form part of his Itinraire de Paris Jrusalem (Itinerary from Paris to Jerusalem), published in 1811; and the Spanish stage of the journey would inspire a third novella, Les aventures du dernier Abencrage (The Adventures of the Last Abencerrage), which appeared in 1826. On his return to France, he published a severe criticism of Napoleon, comparing him to Nero and predicting the emergence of a new Tacitus. The emperor banished him from Paris. Condition: The binding is generally firm but strained in places exposing the cords. The inner hinges are strained but both covers are holding firm. There is some minor wear to the extremities including some rubbing to the edges and boards. The bottom of the outer hinges are very slightly starting to crack. The spine is a little rubbed with some bumping to the top and bottom. Internally the book is generally clean apart from some occasional mild spots and the odd handling mark. The front marbled end paper is detached but present. The pages are a little browned as usual. Overall the book is in very good condition..

        The Naval War Of 1812 Or The History Of The United States Navy During The Last War With Great Britain

      New York: G. P. Putnam's Sons, 1882. New York: G. P. Putnam's Sons, 1882. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Octavo; pp. xviii, 498 with index plus an ad leaf; Illustrated with four figures, battle plans; terra-cotta cloth, gilt spine titles and a gilt sailing ship at center of front board; Edge wear. A solid copy. Bookseller's tag from Preston & Rounds, Providence R.I. Small stamp on title page "Rhode Island Historical Society Providence, R.I.", no additional defects. TR began this work of history while still an undergraduate at Harvard. It still stands today amid much subsequent research as a cornerstone work in American naval history. Every ship in the Navy had a copy on board and this work is still read at the Naval Academy. Roosevelt's belief in a strong standing navy and preparedness that became a hallmark of his later career as Assistant Secretary of the Navy and President can in a large part be grounded in this early work and his admiration for the British Navy through two centuries. Very scarce in the first edition.

He studied painting in the workshop of Amaury-Duval. Between1851 to 1863 he painted portraits of his fellow actors in as themselves or in the costume of their favourite roles.
