      Hamburg, bei August Campe / Braunschweig, gedruckt bei Friedrich Vieweg 1815 - X, 95 S. Brombeerfarbener, bedruckter Orig.-Umschlag. Etwas berieben, hinterer Umschlag fleckig, Papier an Kanten und Gelenken mit Knickspuren und kurzen Einrissen. - Erste Ausgabe (Rümann, Kinderbücher 89; Hobrecker 60 u. 141; Wegehaupt I,473; Schatzki 120; Steinbrink, Hoffmann und Campe Bibliogr. 1815.5; Bibliothek der Brüder Grimm 2372). – Teils etwas (stock-) fleckig, Ecken teils mit kleinen Knickspuren. Ein ebenso schönes wie empfindliches Buch für Kinder und Eltern, in dem sich Gestaltung und kindlich-poetischer Iinhalt zu vollkommenem Ausdruck romantischen Geistes vereinen. „Ein Büchlein, das nur Kinderstubenpoesie enthält, vielleicht das früheste seiner Art. Es ist wunderhübsch ausgestattet. Mit seinem in einfachem Typensatz hergestellten Titel, den graziös von Laubgewind umrahmten Textseiten verkörpert es den Geschmack seiner Zeit aufs vollkommenste und weit besser, als dies Büchern für Erwachsene gelingt.“ (Hobrecker). Inspiriert wurde die Sammlung eines unbekannten Herausgebers sicher durch den Anhang Kinderlieder zum dritten Teil von Des Knaben Wunderhorn, ist in ihrer Art aber ganz eigenständig; sie wurde von den Brüdern GRIMM für die Kinder- und Hausmährchen ausgewertet. Der Titelvermerk „neu herausgegeben“ bezieht sich nicht auf eine frühere Ausgabe dieser Sammlung, sondern auf Sammlungen ähnlicher Art. Das Buch ist besonders im originalen Zustand selten. So ist es im JAP nur dreimal nachweisbar: 1951 (Hauswedell Aukt.43), 1974 (H&N 200,332) und 1998 (Z&K 31,2601). [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Ahnung und Gegenwart. Ein Roman. Mit einem Vorwort von de la Motte Fouqué.

      Nürnberg, bei Johann Leonhard Schrag 1815 - VI, (7 -) 476 S., (2) Bll. Nachtblauer Lederband mit Rückenschild und -vergoldung. - Erste Ausgabe (Goedeke VIII,185,6). – Vereinzelt leicht stockfleckig, wenige Bll. leicht schief eingebunden. Marmorierte Vorsätze. - „. große Seltenheit der deutschen Literatur. .“ (Kaldewey, H&T 9,483). Wie schon zu CHAMISSOs Peter Schlemihl hatte der damals (noch) hoch angesehene FOUQUÉ , der Autor der Undine, den Verleger vermittelt und als Herausgeber das Vorwort unterschrieben, das allerdings ganz von EICHENDORFF selbst formuliert ist. Ahnung und Gegenwart erzählt die Geschichte des jungen Grafen Friedrich, der sich nach Verlassen der Universität auf eine große Wanderung voller Abenteuer und Begegnungen macht. Entstanden bereits zur Zeit der Befreiungskriege 1810 bis 1812 verbindet die episodenhaft angelegte Handlung in der die frühe Romantik kennzeichnenden fragmentarisch-offenen Form Kritik an „der damaligen deutschen Elite“ (P.Requardt) mit der Absage an aufklärerisches Gedankengut. In den Roman sind über fünfzig Gedichte eingeflochten, die zu Volksliedern wurden, darunter z. B. „In einem kühlen Grunde“. Selbstbekenntnis und Selbstfindung, Entwicklungsroman, Zeitkritik und Heilsgeschichte verschmelzen in Ahnung und Gegenwart zu einem romantischen Kunstwerk eigener Prägung. Der Roman fand zu seiner Zeit wenig Anerkennung beim Publikum und auch zwiespältige Aufnahme bei der Kritik; für Ricarda Huch war er „ungarer Brei und schwer genießbar“. Neuerdings aber wird sein Rang als „Prototyp“ als „Inbegriff des romantischen Romans“ gesehen. „. ein authentisches Werk. Besonders auf ihre Kosten . werden Leser kommen, die sich einen Sinn für die Unentbehrlichkeit von Imagination bewahrt haben, mit deren Hilfe man sich die Welt auch ganz anders eingerichtet vorstellen kann.“ (W.Dimter, in: Lektüren für das 21.Jahrhundert. Schlüsseltexte der deutschen Literatur, Würzburg 2000, S.184). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Sainte Solange, Vierge et Martyre, patronne du Berry.

      Chartres: chez Garnier-Allabre, [between 1805 and 1815]. Broadsheet (378 x 310 mm.) on laid paper, deckle edges. Large central stencil- colored woodcut of Saint Solange, framed by letterpress text: a three-line title in large type, narrow bands of text on either side consisting of lyrics to a song about the Saint, and a litany, with imprint at bottom. A few innocuous short marginal tears, one small crease at center left, a small color smudge on imprint. Archivally matted. *** A fine impression, with bright contemporary coloring, of a Chartres devotional print with text, honoring the patron saint of the province of Berry, whose festival day is the 10th of May. The legend of the ninth-century Saint Solange describes her as a shepherdess from the village of Villemont (in the present-day department of the Cher) who had powers of healing the sick and chasing away evil by her mere presence, and who was accompanied at night by a bright star which lit her way in the dark. Her martyrdom came at the hands of a rapist on horseback, the son of the Count of Poitiers, who assaulted and then decapitated her in anger after her struggles pitched them both into a nearby stream. Her head is said to have uttered the name of Jesus three times, after which the body picked it up and carried it back to the village church before dying. The present simply cut but charming woodcut shows a more peaceful scene, with the Saint spinning wool under a flowering tree, a dog at her feet, in the background grazing sheep and a distant village, with a divine ray blazing down at her and angels in the clouds. The poem in the left-hand column, to be sung to the popular tune "Afin d'être docile et sage," relates her life and death in indirect terms and gives thanks for her protection of the faithful of Berry from "birds, winds, tempests, and thunderstorms." The full imprint reads ... "chez Garnier-Allabre, Fabricant d'Images et Marchand de Papiers peints, place des Halles, no. 389," the address used by the firm from 1805 to 1815. Jacques-Pierre Garnier, from Versailles, married the daughter of the recently deceased Chartres printseller Marin Allabre in 1805, continuing the business under the dual name. Garnier-Allabre acquired a large stock of earlier blocks from other engravers, which he seems to have continued to publish, anonymously; most of the prints issued under his imprint were the work of his own engravers. The prints, as well as chapbooks and canards (popular news pamphlets), were sold on site to the many pilgrims who visited Chartres, and further afield through a network of colporteurs. In 1828 Garnier-Allabre was obliged to sell his recent blocks and printed stock to Castiaux and Blocquel of Lille. The firm's large woodcuts, now so valuable, were sadly sold to a merchant to be used for wrapping textiles! In spite of its relatively short existence, the Garnier-Allabre firm dominated print production in Chartres and is the main source of extant popular prints from that city, which are considered among the best of the genre. Many of the prints used the format of a central woodcut flanked by two columns of letterpress text, as here. Musée national des arts et traditions populaires, Nicole Garnier, ed. L'Imagerie populaire française I, 261 and pp.123-4; cf. Prouté, Imagerie populaire française, p. 24.

        A Delineation of the Strata of England and Wales, with Part of Scotland; exhibiting the Colleries and Mines, the Marshes and Fen Lands originally overflowed by the Sea, and the Varieties of Soil according to the Variations in the Substrata, Illustrated by the most descriptive Names. [together with] A Memoir to the Map and Delineation of the Strata of England and Wales, with part of Scotland. By William Smith, Engineer and Mineral Surveyor.

      John Cary,, London, 1815 - The Map that Changed the World Large engraved wall map, dissected and mounted on linen, in three sections, fine original full-wash colour, signed and numbered "a65" by the author to the lower right corner of the north section, third issue (the "a" series), housed in original brown mottled paper slipcase, rubbed. The first large scale, detailed scientific geological map of any country: "A major cartographic and scientific achievement" (Eyles, DSB). Smith's triumph in executing this, his subsequent fall and then final recognition is the stuff of scientific legend: "he was imprisoned for debt, turned out of his home, his work was plagiarised, his wife went insane and the scientific establishment shunned him" (Winchester). However, Smith's overwhelming contribution to the science of geology was his recognition, as outlined in the Memoir, "that each stratum is also possessed of properties peculiar to itself, has the same exterior characters and chemical properties, and the same extraneous or organised fossils throughout its course". It was this theory, developed as early as 1796, that enabled Smith to "accurately predict, and therefore map, the geological composition of Britain" (Challinor). The connection between strata and their fossils was noted by the Danish scientist Nicolas Steno in his 1669 work 'De Solido', but it was Smith who first understood that the principles of stratigraphy could be applied on a national scale. His development of the mechanisms of superposition (the theory that geological strata are formed in order), placed palaeontology as a fundamental part of geology and lent credence to the theory of deep time, leading to a better understanding of the age of the earth. His great map is astoundingly accurate, and modern versions have made only relatively minor modifications to his work. Five states of Smith's work have been identified: an early unnumbered state (known in only a few copies); a series numbered 1-100, which Smith signed between 2 November and 17 December 1815; a series numbered a1-100 (the present example is of this series), signed between 17 December 1815 and 23 January 1816; a series numbered b1-100, signed after 23 January 1816; and an unnumbered series probably issued in 1823 or later (watermarks are dated 1823). "The map was supplied either in sheets [usually bound as an atlas], or mounted on canvas and rollers, or fitted in a case for travelling [as in the present example]" (Eyles, Bibliography). Most probably no more than 320-350 copies of the map were published, of which perhaps 130 survive today. The present example corresponds to Eyles' second issue, series III map: "a65", was examined and signed by Smith on 13 January 1816. It was one of a batch of 15, which had been coloured by Morse, signed that day and numbered. Scale: 5 miles to one inch. J.

        THE HISTORY OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION BY DAVID RAMSAY, M.D. IN TWO VOLUMES

      Lexington, KY: Printed and published by Downing and Phillips, 1815. Vol. I: viii, [2], [9]-501pp; Vol. II: viii, [9]-488pp, frontispiece portrait of Washington engraved by W. Kneass, So. Philadelphia. Bound in original calf, gilt-lettered spine labels [spine ends rubbed, short crack at foot of front joint of Vol. 1]. Tanned, light to moderate foxing. Else Very Good. The South Carolina historian, physician, and statesman was "a moderate Federalist, representative of the coast country group, a man of ability, integrity, and influence" [DAB]. A Princeton graduate, he received his medical degree at the University of Pennsylvania and settled in Charleston, where he developed a busy medical practice. During the Revolution he was a military surgeon during the siege of Charleston, was captured there by the British, and imprisoned at St. Augustine for a year. The work of one of the Revolution's earliest major historians, this book was first published in 1789. Quite scarce, it lists several hundred Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee and Indiana Territory subscribers at the end of Volume II. It is "the work of an alert and sturdy eye-witness" [Larned]. Ramsay's Preface explains that, as a member of Congress in the 1780's, "I had access to all the official papers of the United States. Every letter written to Congress by general Washington, from the day he took the command of the American army till he resigned it, was carefully perused, and its contents noted. The same was done with the letters of other general officers, ministers of congress, and others in public stations."Jillson 52. AII 564. Howes R35. Larned 1469 [Philadelphia 1789].

        Krähwinkliaden, oder bildliche Darstellung doppelsinniger Redensarten.

      Augsburg, Martin Engelbrecht o. J. (ca. 1815). - Quer-4°. 8 (statt 12 ?) handkol. Radierungen mit gestochenen Text im unteren Rand, lose in Orig.-Papierumschlag mit gestoch. Deckeltitel. Sehr seltene Folge der humoristisch-satirischen Kupferstiche über die seinerzeit beliebten kleinstädtischen, spießbürgerlichen Krähwinkler, die in ihrer Beschränktheit den Schiltbürgern gleichen. - Der in Nördlingen geborene Maler, Radierer und Zeichner J. M. Voltz (1784-1858) arbeitete nach seiner Ausbildung bei dem Augsburger Kupferstecher und Verleger Friedrich Weber und dem Hofmaler Schmidt zunächst bei der Akademischen Buchhandlung Herzberg in Augsburg. Nach einem Aufenthalt in München 1808 trat Voltz 1809 in den Bilderbogen-Verlag von Friedrich Campe in Nürnberg ein, für den er bis zu seinem Tod arbeitete. Insgesamt umfasst Voltz’ Œuvre etwa 5000 Zeichnungen und Radierungen, die er für Campe und andere Kunstverlage in Augsburg und Nürnberg schuf. - "Staunenswerth bleibt seine immer frische Vielseitigkeit. V. war in der historischen Malerei, im Zeitbild, in Schlachtenscenen ebenso bewandert, wie in der Darstellung religiöser Gegenstände, nicht minder in der Humoristik und in der Caricatur; auch im Genrebild bewegte er sich in der umfassendsten Weise. Er schilderte das Treiben der Erwachsenen ebenso wahr, wie er sich in das Gemüthsleben der Kinder versenkte; das ganze Gebiet der Thierwelt und der Landschaft zog er gleichmäßig in das Bereich seiner Darstellung, kein Zweig der Kunst blieb ihm fremd. Zur weiteren Signatur der Zeit zählen die zahlreichen Caricaturen, dann die in der Litteratur schon längst eine große Rolle spielenden Räubergeschichten, die Modethorheiten und Schwächen der Menschen, Dann eine ganze Reihe mit den damals vielbeliebten Kleinstädtereien (Kotzebue) und "Krähwinkliaden", deren Hauptwitz darin gipfelt, daß eine Redensart wörtlich genommen wird (wie z. B. der siegreiche General eine Besatzung über die Klinge springen läßt oder eine Festung schleift) u. dergl." (H. Holland in ADB XL, 280 ff.). - Umschlag am Fuß eingerissen und etwas fleckig sonst sehr gut erhalten und sauber. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Belle et intéressante correspondance de Suède au moment de l'arrivée de Bernadotte.

      - 9 lettres autographes signées 23 In-4 1815-1818 Une adresse avec cachet de cire au dos. très bon Belle et intéressante correspondance du marquis de Rumigny sur la situation de la Suède au moment de l'arrivée de Bernadotte sur le trône (5 février 1818) et du changement dynastique. 12 février 1818. « Je vous ai annoncé la mort d'un roi fort ordinaire et l'avènement du Roi le plus extraordinaire du moment. Comptez que je vous instruirez exactement de tout ce qui tendra à assurer son assiète [.]. Ce grand événement s'est passé avec le calme le plus extraordinaire. Un fils succédant à son père dans un hameau de Suède n'aurait pas fait moins de sensation. L'Histoire ne s'expliquera pas – à peine nous le croyons, nous qui avons été témoin que le défunt est parti de ce monde au milieu des larmes de vieux serviteurs de sa race, de vieux compagnons d'enfance, de compagnons de périls et de gloire, et qui le lendemain avons vu les mêmes gens accompagner le nouveau Roi avec le même calme, le même silence qu'il l'avaient accompagné étant Prince Royal. Les bizarres gens que ces Suédois ; ils semblent insensibles à la joie comme à la douleur, leur seul sentiment en ce moment est la stupeur. On dirait qu'ils n'ont eu ni le temps ni le moyen de se préparer à un événement qui est certainement leur seul ouvrage. Il faut voir ce que veux dire ce silence. En attendant, que Charles Jean soit sage, modéré ; qu'il les occupe moins d'affaires, plus de plaisirs. Je lui garantirai un règne qui ne serait troublé que par des inquiétudes imaginaires [.] ». Diplomate, nommé secrétaire de la légation de France à Stockholm en juillet 1814, après avoir été collaborateur de Caulaincourt à Saint-Pétersbourg. Ambassadeur à Turin (1836-1840), puis à Bruxelles (1840-1848). [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Da Baggesen i 1811 vendte tilbage til Danmark blev Ida Brun, datter af Friederike Brun, en muse for den aldrende digter. Han skrev flere digte til hende bl.a. "Den gamle Anakreon til den unge Psycarion", oprindelig skrevet til Oehlenschlægers søster Sophie Ørsted. Dette digt blev første gang trykt i Foersoms "Poetisk Lommebog", og senere i "Poetiske Epistler" fra 1814.Jens Baggesen var i 1815 flyttet fra Raus Hotel på Kongens Nytorv til Kronprinsessegade 16, en ejendom som havde matrikelnummeret 390. Gadenavnet og matrikelnummeret har givet digteren ordspilsmotivet til dette digt. De 3 gratier og de 9 muser gæster Baggesens 0 for Kronprinsessens skyld, som den nævnte dag havde fødselsdag sammen med sin moder Dronningen, til hvem drømmen tilegnes, ligesom det dermed følgende digt "Den opstandne Sang" er stilet til Kronprinsesse Caroline.

The articles . . . under their separate heads of Poetry, History, &c., with a general index to the whole, give the new edition a great superiority over the first edition." - Lowndes. Sir Samuel Egerton Brydges, 1st Baronet (30 November 1762 – 8 September 1837) was an English bibliographer and genealogist. He was also Member of Parliament for Maidstone from 1812 to 1818. Educated at Maidstone Grammar School and The King's School, Canterbury, Brydges was admitted to Queens' College, Cambridge in 1780, though he did not take a degree. He was called to the bar from the Middle Temple in 1787. He wrote some novels and poems, now forgotten, but rendered valuable service through his bibliographical publications, Censura Literaria, Titles and Opinions of Old English Books (10 vols. 1805-9), his editions of Edward Phillips's Theatrum Poetarum Anglicanorum (1800), Arthur Collins's Peerage of England (1812), and of many rare Elizabethan authors. He was a founding member of the Roxburghe Club, a publishing club of wealthy bibliophiles. He was elected a Knight Grand Commander of the Equestrian, Secular, and Chapterial Order of St. Joachim in 1807, at a Chapter held in Franconia. In 1789, the Chandos barony became dormant. Egerton Brydges attempted to claim the title, initially on behalf on his older brother Rev. Edward Tymewell Brydges, then later on his own behalf. The litigation continued from 1790 to 1803, before the claims were ultimately rejected, but he continued to style himself per legem terrae Baron Chandos of Sudeley. It seems likely that not only was the claim groundless but that the evidence was forged. He was made a baronet on 27 December 1814. He died in Geneva.

        ANCIENT TOPOGRAPHY OF LONDON Containing Not Only Views of Buildings, Which in Many instances No Longer Exist, and For the Most Part Were Never Before Published, but Some Account of the Places and Customs Either Unknown, or Overlooked by the London Historians

      Published and Sold by the Proprietor John Thomas Smith 1815 - First edition. Imperial 4to. 350 x 282mm. Full tan polished calf, gilt rules to the boards, gilt floral decoration to the spine in the sections between raised bands, leather title label lettered in gilt. Marbled endpapers, all edges red. From the library of Princess Elizabeth, daughter of George III, with her signature on the title-page. A very good copy with some wear to the spine ends and joints and to the gilt decoration to the spine. Internally fresh with just occasional offsetting. An excellent, large copy with a distinguished provenance. Thirty two etchings, by Smith from his own drawings, of buildings and interiors around London, plus a title page with hand coloured heraldic devices of London guilds. Princess Elizabeth (1770-1840) was the third daugher of King George III. It was alleged that she completed a clandestine marriage and bore a child as a teenager, before formally marrying Prince Frederick of Hesse-Homburg in 1818 and moving permanently to Germany two years later. Originally entitled "Ancient Topography of London, embracing Specimens of Sacred, Public, and Domestic Architecture, from the earliest period to the time of the Great Fire in 1666. Intended as an Accompaniment to the celebrated works of Stow, Pennant, and others." The work was begun in October 1810 and completed in 1815, when the title was changed to its current wording. Shortly thereafter John Smith, noted for his engravings and works on London Antiquity, (and known as 'Antiquity Smith') was appointed keeper of the prints at the British Museum. A contemporary reviewer wrote "The Volume before us has given us very considerable pleasure: the Views are extremely faithful; and the Descriptions novel and entertaining." It is now valued for its notably accurate architectural drawings of buildings, many of which no longer exist. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Tous les textes, à charge et à décharge de l'emprunt ont été publiés entre 1815 et 1817

      1815 - Joseph-Dominique Louis dit baron Louis revient aux finances après les Cent-Jours. Il doit payer la campagne de Belgique, les frais des troupes Alliés, 150 millions pour 1815. Les prélèvements des opposants réduisent la matière imposable et l'effort exigé est très dur. La Terreur blanche menace les mauvais contribuables accusés de sympathie pour l'usurpateur et contribue à la restauration du crédit de l'État. Corvetto, qui lui succède, doit payer 130 millions par an de frais d'occupation (pour 150 000 hommes), qui s'ajoutent aux 700 millions d'indemnité de guerre et aux gratifications (trois millions au maréchal prussien Blücher). Il propose la création d'une Caisse d'amortissement, soutenant le crédit par d'éventuels achats de rentes ; il échoue devant l'opposition des ultras qui veulent récupérer les anciens biens des immigrés.

        Sainte Solange, Vierge et Martyre, patronne du Berry

      Chartres: chez Garnier-Allabre, 1815. Broadsheet (378 x 310 mm.) on laid paper, deckle edges. Large central stencil- colored woodcut of Saint Solange, framed by letterpress text: a three-line title in large type, narrow bands of text on either side consisting of lyrics to a song about the Saint, and a litany, with imprint at bottom. A few innocuous short marginal tears, one small crease at center left, a small color smudge on imprint. Archivally matted. *** A fine impression, with bright contemporary coloring, of a Chartres devotional print with text, honoring the patron saint of the province of Berry, whose festival day is the 10th of May. The legend of the ninth-century Saint Solange describes her as a shepherdess from the village of Villemont (in the present-day department of the Cher) who had powers of healing the sick and chasing away evil by her mere presence, and who was accompanied at night by a bright star which lit her way in the dark. Her martyrdom came at the hands of a rapist on horseback, the son of the Count of Poitiers, who assaulted and then decapitated her in anger after her struggles pitched them both into a nearby stream. Her head is said to have uttered the name of Jesus three times, after which the body picked it up and carried it back to the village church before dying. The present simply cut but charming woodcut shows a more peaceful scene, with the Saint spinning wool under a flowering tree, a dog at her feet, in the background grazing sheep and a distant village, with a divine ray blazing down at her and angels in the clouds. The poem in the left-hand column, to be sung to the popular tune "Afin d'être docile et sage," relates her life and death in indirect terms and gives thanks for her protection of the faithful of Berry from "birds, winds, tempests, and thunderstorms." The full imprint reads ... "chez Garnier-Allabre, Fabricant d'Images et Marchand de Papiers peints, place des Halles, no. 389," the address used by the firm from 1805 to 1815. Jacques-Pierre Garnier, from Versailles, married the daughter of the recently deceased Chartres printseller Marin Allabre in 1805, continuing the business under the dual name. Garnier-Allabre acquired a large stock of earlier blocks from other engravers, which he seems to have continued to publish, anonymously; most of the prints issued under his imprint were the work of his own engravers. The prints, as well as chapbooks and canards (popular news pamphlets), were sold on site to the many pilgrims who visited Chartres, and further afield through a network of colporteurs. In 1828 Garnier-Allabre was obliged to sell his recent blocks and printed stock to Castiaux and Blocquel of Lille. The firm's large woodcuts, now so valuable, were sadly sold to a merchant to be used for wrapping textiles! In spite of its relatively short existence, the Garnier-Allabre firm dominated print production in Chartres and is the main source of extant popular prints from that city, which are considered among the best of the genre. Many of the prints used the format of a central woodcut flanked by two columns of letterpress text, as here. Musée national des arts et traditions populaires, Nicole Garnier, ed. L'Imagerie populaire française I, 261 and pp.123-4; cf. Prouté, Imagerie populaire française, p. 24.

TOMO PRIMEIRO : A – I [+ TOMO SEGUNDO : L – Z]. «COIMBRA: NA REAL IMPRENSA DA UNIVERSIDADE. 1815 e 1819. Obra em 2 volumes, encadernados em 1. In fólio [4º gr.] de 28,5x20 cm. Com xv, 560 (aliás 571), [i] + [iv], 569, vii págs. Encadernação da época, inteira de pele, com nervos e ferros a ouro na lombada. Cortes das folhas carminados. Texto impresso a duas colunas, com entradas numeradas ao estilo enciclopédico. Belo exemplar de uma obra monumental e de grande utilidade para a consulta do corpo jurídico português, antes das grandes reformas liberais do início do século XIX. Obra muito apreciada pela particular relevância para o conhecimento das leis, decretos, assentos, alvarás e toda a jurisprudência em vigor à data do Império Luso-Brasileiro. Trata-se de uma base de dados jurídica, sintetizada e organizada pelo autor ao longo de muitos anos de trabalho, tal como é referido no privilégio real. No caso do Ultramar, e do Brasil em particular, encontram-se as leis promulgadas em Portugal e no Rio de Janeiro como por exemplo (pág. 124, entrada 390) «O comercio delle [Brasil] foi aberto a todas as Nações, pagando por entrada vinte e quatro por cento, à excepção dos géneros estancados. C. R. 28 de Janeiro de 1808», e outras leis e regulamentos mais antigos referentes ao Brasil, como por exemplo a lei de 1 de Abril de 1680 «do crime de cativar índios do Brasil» (pág. 47, entrada 724). O investigador antigo e o investigador actual encontram aqui todas as pistas, que podem ser consultadas por ordem alfabética e correlacionadas através de uma tabela remissiva (colocada nas últimas 140 páginas do 2º volume) e da qual o autor fornece uma «Explicação da Tabela Remissiva dos lugares paralelos, que se encontram neste repertório» (págs. 427-428 do 2º volume), com o funcionamento da mesma através de um exemplo concreto (a palavra Cabido), podendo assim encontrar-se um artigo da Legislação através de uma ou mais palavras. Em resumo, esta obra é um directório de todas as referências da jurisprudência portuguesa continental e do Império Colonial, descendo a leis de pormenor sobre as actividades civis, das ordens religiosas (autorizações ao funcionamento dos conventos e padroados), organização das tutelas de diferentes assuntos comerciais, como os seguros marítimos, e ainda a organização quotidiana da marinha e os assuntos da guerra (por ex. ordens sobre o método de serviço andando à vela e o método de repartir uma guarnição na ocasião de combate (vide pág. 87, entrada 80, 1º tomo), etc. etc. Samodães I, 331 (1192) no ano de 1922: «Obra apreciada e pouco comum no mercado».

      Hartford. January 6, 1815. - [3]pp. Folio. Previously folded. Some wear and minor loss along old folds, with a few tissue repairs, slightly affecting text. Four-inch tear from upper fore-edge of second leaf. Light dust soiling and foxing. Good. Untrimmed. A rare report of the proceedings and resolutions of the Hartford Convention, together with a number of tables containing relevant statistical evidence, printed by a local Hartford newspaper, the CONNECTICUT COURANT. The Convention comprised a series of secret meetings held by New England Federalists in December 1814 to discuss their common grievances against the federal government, to demand several constitutional amenments to redress what they considered to be an imbalance of power among regions, and for some delegates to call for secession. As the convention formally ended on January 5, 1815, this supplement to the COURANT, published the following day on January 6, is undoubtedly the earliest printed account of the completed proceedings.

Vicaire 510: "l'auteur y étudie en détail tout ce qui a rapport à l'alimentation, festins et usages de table. [ainsi que] des renseignements sur les diverses corporations des charcutiers, cuisiniers, pâtissiers, oublayeurs, etc." Provenance: Ernest de Fréville de Lorme (1811-1855), historien diplômé de l'Ecole des Chartes (ex libris manuscrit).
