        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. Challinor, "The Beginnings of Scientific Palaeontology in Britain" Annals of Science 6 (1948): 46-53; Joan M. Eyles, "William Smith", in Dictionary of Scientific Biography (vol.12), ed.

        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]

      Hartford, 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. Only one copy located by OCLC, at the Connecticut History Society.
