         Album d'un Soldat pendant la campagne d'Espagne en 1823.

      Paris, imprimerie de Cosson, 1829. - in-8. 3ff. 118pp. 1f. et 40 planches lithographiées coloriées. Demi-veau vert, dos orné dans le style romantique (reliure de l'époque). Edition Originale de cet ouvrage rare, publié à son retour en France par un soldat de la campagne d'Espagne de 1823. Ce tableau volontiers critique, voir caricatural des us et coutumes de la société espagnole de l'époque ne manque pas de laisser entrevoir, malgré ses réprobations, une certaine fascination pour l'Espagne, déjà empreinte de romantisme. Il se compose de quarante très belles planches lithographiées et coloriées par Langlumé d'après les dessins faits par l'auteur au fur et à mesure de ses pérégrinations dans le pays, avec les observations et récits annotés à l'occasion de chaque croquis. Ces planches représentent des costumes pittoresques et quelques scènes auxquelles l'auteur avait assisté (danses, fêtes, processions, etc.). Rousseurs assez prononcées. Le coloris des planches est très frais. Bon exemplaire, bien relié à l'époque. Palau, 55664. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Une Annee En Suede (A Year In Sweden. Costume Book).

      France. 1829 - 48 hand coloured aquatint engraved plates of Swedish regional costumes and some scenes of places including the mine at Fahlun and a traditional country house at Ornas. The plates still have the tissue guards, are very clean and fresh to view and touch. The printed paper covers dated 1836 are unusually pre-dated inside. The title page gives the date of 1829. There is a later half-morocco leather spine and corners, the boards all original and a limp thick card rather than a stiff hardback. This has left the boards with a few creases not seen but felt. Full quarto (4to). 1829. * The book WAS published just as a series of engravings (see World cat). There are 20 Swedish regions/districts represented in the 47 full page plates + the rare engraved title page again hand-coloured. It does have a previous owners name to the top area "Joyce Bankes from her great-aunt Minnie 1918". The patterned endpaper seem to be all original. The plates as stated unusually clean and fresh. Ref: Colas 1282, Lipperheide 1054. One of the most attractive Swedish costume books ever printed. All on hand made cartridge paper. Very Good+ [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Zwei Jahre in Neu Südwales...

      Leipzig: Hartmann, 1829. Octavo, original half roan. A very good copy of the uncommon German translation of Cunningham's valuable account of the colony, considered an Australian classic: 'an acute observer and possessed a pleasant literary style, so that Two Years in New South Wales remains the best as well as the fullest picture of the colony in the 1820s' (ADB). The German translation and additional notes are by A. Kaiser.Cunningham made four voyages to New South Wales as surgeon-superintendent of convict ships and had taken up land on the Hunter River in 1825 before writing this most important account of the evolving and distinctive characteristics of the Australian people. His observations on the unique Australian vocabulary and accent, as well as on the physical characteristics of the Australian-born youth is the classic statement of the early colonial era.Ferguson originally knew the National Library copy only, but added the Mitchell and the then Public Library of Victoria to his census. As the title-page notes, the translation was based on the second revised edition of the original work (London, 1827). The paper shows some characteristic browning; original half roan, worn with repairs at the corners.

         Risposta alli Schiarimenti dati dalla delegazione Governativa sul fiume Reno

      Manoscritto cartaceo in folio (mm 330x220) di carte 10, composte da un bifolio, che funge da copertina e reca il titolo, e da 17 pagine di testo. Ottima copia. Si tratta di un Parere richiesto al Bonati, uno dei più stimati Idraulici dell'epoca, sulla Vexata quaestio dell'immissione del fiume Panaro in Po. Il committente è il Condelegato Cittadino Costabili, Consultore di Stato, che poi farà pubblicare a proprio nome la Risposta in: "Opuscoli idraulici di T.Bonati, V. Brunacci, G. Morri, ecc.", Bologna, 1829 (pp. 230-242). Il manoscritto è con ogni probabilità autografo, è cioè la copia che il Bonati trattenne per sé affidando la stesura dell'altra ad un segretario. Il Bonati ideò l'Asta Idrometrica e pubblicò fra gli altri un importantissimo saggio dal titolo: Saggio sopra una nuova teoria del movimento delle acque pei fiumi, Pavia, 1785. Si veda l'ottima voce, dedicata al Bonati, nel D.B.I. di E. Pozzato..

He produced the first full performance of Mozart's Don Giovanni in the United States in 1825.

Montani's two-part review was originally published in the Antologia Fiorentia of Vieusseux (in April and May 1828).

He produced the first full performance of Mozart's Don Giovanni in the United States in 1825. The publication and importance of Da Ponte's Memorie was not widely recognized at the time, even in Italy. Montani's two-part review was originally published in the Antologia Fiorentia of Vieusseux (in April and May 1828). It was sent to Da Ponte by his friend Filippo Pananti after Montani had had it translated into English by his students and published in New York on the occasion of Da Ponte's 80th birthday.Scarce in the trade.

Cahier d?études du célèbre naturaliste suisse Louis Agassiz, alors âgé de 22 ans, provenance en ligne directe de la famille du savant. Plusieurs pages sont numérotées. En feuilles non reliées d?une écriture autographe. Louis Agassiz fut nommé en 1848, professeur de zoologie à Harvard University; un des plus grands enseignants en biologie et en sciences naturelles du 19e siècle. Naturaliste - géologue - Les observations de ce savant sont considérées comme le début de la géologie moderne des glaciers. »Agassiz's observations were the beginning of modern glacial geology«Louis Agassiz wurde als Sohn eines protestantischen Pastors in Vully-le-Haut (heute: Haut-Vully) im Ortsteil Môtier, in der Schweiz geboren. Zuerst zu Hause erzogen, verbrachte er vier Jahre an einer höheren Schule in Biel/Bienne und studierte danach in Lausanne. Mit der Zielrichtung, Mediziner zu werden, studierte er ab 1824 an den Universitäten von Zürich, Heidelberg und München. In Heidelberg und München war er Mitglied des Corps Helvetia. Parallel dazu erweiterte er seine Kenntnisse in den Naturwissenschaften, insbesondere in Botanik. 1829 promovierte er als Doktor der Philosophie in Erlangen und 1830 als Doktor der Medizin in München. Nach seinem Umzug nach Paris wurden Alexander von Humboldt und Georges Cuvier seine Mentoren, die ihn ermutigten, sich in Geologie und Zoologie weiterzuentwickeln. Sehr schnell entwickelte er eine Vorliebe für die Ichthyologie, die sein bevorzugtes Forschungsgebiet für den Rest seines Lebens wurde. (Wikipedia). Please notify before visiting to see a book.

         Manifesto dos direitos de Sua Magestade Fidelissima a Senhora Dona Maria Segunda; e exposição da questão portugueza.

      London, Richard Taylor, 1829. - Large 4°, nineteenth-century black quarter morocco over marbled boards (minor wear), spine with raised bands in 5 compartments, heavily gilt, short title in second compartment from head. Light soiling and a few light dampstains. 62 pp., (1 blank l.), 186 pp., (1 blank l.). *** FIRST EDITION. "Os exemplares da edição original de Londres poucas vezes apparecem no mercado. É o Manifesto havido como escripto de muita importancia, assim pela materia de que tracta, como plea riqueza de documentos que se lhe annexaram." - Innocêncio V, 346. ?Importante opúsculo? (Joaquim Veríssimo Serrão, História de Portugal, VII, 421). After D. Pedro IV abdicated his rights to the Portuguese throne in favor of his daughter, D.Maria da Glória, he sent her from Rio de Janeiro to Portugal. Learning that her uncle, D. Miguel, had seized power and invalidated the liberal charter, she sailed instead to England. Pages (3)-62 contain the Manifesto, followed by copies of important historical documents in support of D. Maria?s cause. The work was compiled by José António Guerreiro, responsible for the legal details, and by the Duke of Palmella, for the diplomatic and historical matters. The documents are signed by D. João VI, D. Miguel, D. Pedro, Lord Aberdeen, the Marquez de Barbacena, and others.José António Guerreiro (1789-1834), was a native of São Martinho de Lanhelas, near the villa de Caminha (concelho de Coimbra). In 1821 he was elected a deputy to the Constitutional Cortes; the following year he was named to the Tribunal de Liberdade de Imprensa. He served as minister of justice until 28 May 1823, and occupied the same post under the Carta Constitucional in 1826 and 1827. In 1828 he was named a member of the Regency for D. Maria II on the Island of Terceira, serving until D. Pedro took over as Regent. Had he not died young, it is highly probable that Guerreiro would have been one of the leading Portuguese political figures of the second half of the nineteenth century.The first Duke of Palmela (Turin, 1781-Lisbon, 1850) was one of the leading Portuguese statesmen of the first half of the nineteenth century. He represented Portugal at the conference of Bayonne in 1808, at the Congress of Vienna in 1814, and at the Congress of Paris in 1815. After serving briefly as Minister to the Court of St. James, he became secretary of state for foreign affairs at the Portuguese court in Rio de Janeiro. He then became foreign minister and was made a Marquis in 1823. When D. Miguel siezed the throne in 1828, Palmela sided with the opposition, and fled to England. Dom Pedro I, Emperor of Brazil, appointed him guardian of his daughter, D. Maria II, and he acted as her representative to Great Britain. In 1830 he set up her regency in the Azores. When D. Pedro took charge of the regency in person in 1832, he named Palmela his foreign minister. He served as the first Prime Minister of the newly formed constitutional monarchy in Portugal from September 24, 1834 to May 4, 1835. He was Prime Minister again for two days in February 1842 and from March to October 1846. Palmela was also a great bibliophile; we have seen many fine and important books on the market with his "carimbo".This work was published in Rennes, 1831; Coimbra, 1836; and Coimbra, 1841. There was also an edition in French published in Paris, 1830.*** Innocêncio IV, 240; V, 346; XVI, 95. Duarte de Sousa II, 462. Cf. Palha 3742, for the edition of Rennes, 1831.

        Herodotus, Translated from the Greek, for the Use of General Readers; With Short Explanatory Notes.

      London: Holdworth and Ball. 1829 - FIRST EDITION of this translation. Large, thick 8vo, 228 x 134 mms., pp. [ii], [iii] iv -xxvi, 766, [8 - adverts], folding engraved map as frontispiece, folding "Chronology of the Persian and Grecian History," uncut, many leaves unopened, original boards, linen spine, paper label; ex-library stamp on title-page, edges a bit soiled, but a very good copy, inscribed on top margin of recto of front free end-paper, "The editor of the Literary Gazette."Even though many leaves are unopened, someone last left the marginal injunction "omit" beside this passage on page 433: "If the kings do not make their appearance at the public supper, two choenices of barley-bread are sent home to each of them, with a small pint of wine:--if they are present, they have a double portion of all. The same honour is conferred upon them, when invited to a private house." A theologian, artist, and inventor, Isaac Taylor of Stanford Rivers] (1787–1865) was eldest surviving son of Isaac Taylor of Ongar (1759–1829). His best-known work is The Natural History of Enthusiasm, published also in 1829. The Gentleman's Magazine for 1829 was happy with the translation: "we think Mr. Taylor entitled to much praise for familiarizing the English public with an author, not only one of the principal historians of antiquity, but in many matters the only one." A much longer notice in The Westminster Review took the opposite view, for example, that the translation, "seems to be occasionally inelegant and aukward [sic], when there is no particular difficulty to plead as an apology; there is occasionally 'uncouthness' which is not justified by any necessity, or recompensed by by the felicity of keeping the signficant turns of the original; an exact scholar might also complain of several slight inaccuracies."
