Il visconte François-René de Chateaubriand (1768-1848) fu scrittore, politico e diplomatico parigino. è considerato il fondatore del Romanticismo letterario francese. Dopo i successi letterari e politici seguirono forti contrasti con i partiti conservatori. Chateaubriand, disilluso sull'avvenire della monarchia, si ritirò dalla vita politica in seguito all'instaurazione della Monarchia di luglio nel 1830, dimettendosi dalla Camera dei Pari dopo aver pronunciato il 7 Agosto un memorabile intervento. Rinunciò anche alla dignità di ministro di Stato, perdendo quindi ogni fonte di reddito, ma non cessò di far sentire la sua voce, soprattutto attraverso le sue critiche acerbe contro il nuovo governo. Recò visita a Carlo X rifugiatosi a Praga insieme ai resti della sua corte, e pubblicò questi due scritti De la nouvelle proposition relative au bannissement de Charles X e Mémoire sur la captivité de la duchesse de Berry, a causa dei quali subì anche un breve arresto.

         THE LIFE OF DAVID MARKS TO THE 26TH YEAR OF HIS AGE

      Limerick, Me: Printed at the Office of the Morning Star, 1831. FIRST EDITION. This memoir by a young Freewill Baptist preacher of Jewish ancestry contains the earliest known critique of the "Book of Mormon," a work Marks encountered during his evangelical efforts on the New York frontier. Marks (1805-45) grew up in Seneca County, New York, about 15 miles from the home of Mormon prophet Joseph Smith. Inspired by the revivalist fervor of his childhood, Marks early felt a call to the ministry, and by the age of 16 he was travelling to New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Kentucky, Connecticut, and north into Canada, spreading the word of God and baptizing converts. He records his travels here, including a visit to the Mormon Whitmer family in New York, where he first heard of the Book of Mormon, along with the golden plates dug up by Joseph Smith from which it was taken, and the community of faithful adherents it had attracted. Marks was unimpressed, finding the writing uninspired, with nothing approaching the quality of the Apocrypha or the Alcoran, much less the Bible. He disapproved of the secrecy surrounding its origins and of Smith's obtaining a copyright and profiting from the work. He concluded that "the Bible is a book of perfect harmony, and unrivalled sublimity; the 'Book of Mormon' is full of absurdity, and too dull to charm the soul." (p. 342) Marks' ceaseless travel and punishing work schedule wore on his health, and he died at the age of 40.. 180 x 105 mm. (7 1/8 x 4 1/4"). 396 pp. FIRST EDITION. Original flamed sheep, black morocco label on spine. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Marks, with tissue guard. Flake 5277; Sabin 44624; Howes M-293. A little rubbing to joints and extremities, spine a bit sunned, persistent offsetting and variable foxing (usually minor, never severe), isolated corner creases or small stains, but a really excellent copy, the text with no significant imperfections and the unrestored binding remarkably well preserved.

         Porträtt av skulptören Bengt Erland Fogelberg (1786-1854).

      Olja på duk. Signerad: "Sandberg". Skrivet a tergo på en etikett: "B. E. Fogelberg sign. Sandberg". 27,5 × 22,5 cm. Förgylld originalram. Proveniens: Troligen i konstnärens ägo till åtminstone 1831. | C. F. Lindberg, Stockholm 1898. Arkiv: Svenska porträttarkivet, Nationalmuseum, 1937:1909. Utställd: Stockholm, Konstakademien 1822 (troligen). Konsthistorien rymmer många ungdomliga opponentrörelser. En sådan ägde rum på 1810-talet då Johan Gustaf Sandberg, Bengt Erland Fogelberg och Johan von Breda gjorde uppror mot de gammalmodiga undervisningsmetoderna på Konstakademien genom att 1814 bilda Sällskapet för konststudium och anordna en fri modellskola. I detta betydelsefulla vänporträtt möts två av rörelsens huvudpersoner, skulptören Fogelberg porträtterad av målaren Sandberg. Det är ett intensivt ungdomsporträtt av Fogelberg som utfördes innan han 1820 lämnade Sverige för att efter ett år i Paris bosätta sig i Italien. Vid denna tid bodde vännerna i samma hus på Norrmalm, f.ö. samma byggnad där Per Henrik Lings undervisningsanstalt för gymnastik och fäktningskonst var belägen (Jens Lorenz Beeken, Dagbog, paa en Reise i Sverrig [1818], Kjøbenhavn 1820, s. 79). I Statens porträttsamling på Gripsholm finns en mindre replik av porträttet, daterad 1831 (23 × 18 cm. Gripsholm nr 1975. Mauritz Beijerstein, Johan Gustaf Sandberg 1782-1854 (1928), kat. nr 111). Den torde ha varit förlaga till Sandbergs porträtt av Fogelberg i planschverket Galleri af utmärkta svenska lärde, vitterhetsidkare och konstnärer från Gustaf I:s tid till närvarande tid (Stockholm [1835]-42). (Porträttlitografin av Fogelberg, nr 94, är daterad 1840 och uppges i texten felaktigt vara utförd efter ett original av Södermark. Misstaget beror antagligen på att just Södermarks porträtt följer som nr 95.) Sandberg diskuterar projektet och nämner föreliggande porträtt i ett brev till Fogelberg redan 1827: "Jag håller nu på att måla mina samtida skickligaste artister, musici och lärda i samma format som det portrait [av dig] jag målade innan du reste. Forsell har i tanke att gravera dem". (Citerat efter Beijerstein s. 103.)De tre upprorsmännen framträder även i ett välkänt grupporträtt av Sandberg från 1815, hans finaste arbete i genren. Tavlan utstrålar "förtätad stämning av Sturm und Drang" (Sven Erik Noreen i Svenskt konstnärslexikon, 5 (1967), s. 34) och föreställer de sammansvurna inbegripna i ett allvarligt samtal, förenade likt grekiska krigare emot etablissemangets tyranni.Fogelberg hör till Göteborgs stora söner; han föddes i staden och efter sin bortgång i Trieste åtefördes hans stoft till Göteborg, där han 1862 begravdes på Östra kyrkogården.

         Mémoires de Madame la duchesse d"Abrantès, ou Souvenirs historiques sur Napoléon, la Révolution, le Directoire, le Consulat, l"Empire et la Restauration.

      Paris: Ladvocat puis Paris: Mame-Delaunay, puis Paris: L. Mame, 1831 - 1835 - Edition originale, 18 volumes in-8; Reliure d"époque en demi-basane verte, dos lisse orné avec pièces de titre et de tomaison orange, plats et tranches marbrées. Rousseurs éparses, quelques frottis aux extrémités, accroc à la pièce de tomaison "8", mais un bel ensemble joliment relié. Née en 1784, mariée à seize ans, Laure Junot, duchesse d'Abrantès, et son mari, furent des intimes de Joséphine et Bonaparte et menèrent une vie dépensière et extravagante. Le duc fut chargé de nombreuses missions par Napoléon, mais après sa mort en 1813 la duchesse, ruinée, dut vendre la riche bibliothèque de son mari et débuta une carrière d'écrivain pour subvenir à ses besoins. Elle rencontra Balzac en 1825 puis devint sa maîtresse, avant de mourir en 1838 après une fin de vie très modeste. Ses Mémoires fourmillent d'anecdotes écrites dans un style simple et enjoué. Tulard, 5: "Célèbres mémoires qui doivent beaucoup à Balzac et dont Chateaubriand, Victor Hugo et Alexandre Dumas firent grand cas. C"est dire le prestige de ces souvenirs riches en anecdotes curieuses et en portraits piquants." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Beschreibung der unter allerhà chstem kaiserlichen Schutze von der Universität zu Dorpat veranstalteten .

      J. C. Schünmann, 1831., Dorpat, Estonia: - 2 volumes in 1. 4to. [8], 360; [8], 424, [3] pp. 13 folding plates; light scattered foxing especially at plates and through p. 20, pages largely un-opened. Original printed wrappers; edges and spine chipped, top spine edges torn, hand-written ink front cover title. Spine and front cover library labels, rubber stamps to front cover and title-page (observatory in Utrecht and a Technical Library in Deft). UNTRIMMED IN ORIGINAL PUBLISHER'S PLAIN WRAPPERS, AS ISSUED. Very good +. FIRST EDITION of Struve's pioneering geodetic work. These measurements represent the initiation of the Struve Geodetic Arc, "a chain of survey triangulations stretching from Hammerfest in Norway to the Black Sea, through ten countries and over 2,820 km, which yielded the first accurate measurement of a meridian" (Wikipedia). "The work carried out under Dr. Struve's supervision in Tartu during 1816-1855 was of considerable importance for determining the shape and size of the Earth and represented an important step in the development of astronomy, geodetics and cartography. The measurement of the arc constituted a rare example of collaboration for a scientific cause between the scientists and rulers of a number of countries" (ER). The plates are mainly diagrams of scientific instruments employed by Struve. "In 1819, M. Struve, who was then director of the observatory of Dorpat, while engaged in the survey of Livonia, suggested to the University of Dorpat the desirableness of measuring the arc of the meridian included between the island of Hogland in the Gulf of Finland, and the town of Jacobstadt in the province of Courland. The sanction of the emperor having been obtained for the project, the operations were commenced and were finally completed in the year 1827…. In the same year in which M. Struve brought to a close the operations connected with this arc, General Tenner also completed measurement of the arc of the meridian included between Bristen in Courland, and Belin in the province of Grodno…. It became desirable to connect trigonometrically the two arcs together. This was effected in 1827-8, by M. Struve and General Tenner, independently of each other, and the results upon being transmitted separately in sealed letters to Bessel, were found to exhibit a most satisfying accordance" (Knight, p. 349). "From 1828 to 1831 Struve and Tenner had been engaged in joining their respective measurements of meridian arcs. The description of this operation was published in 1832; the full account of Struve's work having appeared in 1831 in the…Breitengradmessung" (Abbe, p. 375). Struve was a Danish-Norwegian astronomer who is best known for his studies of double stars, making micrometric measurements of 2714 of them from 1824-1837, and his work in the field of geodesy. He taught astronomy at the University of Dorpat for many years, before becoming director of the Central Observatory in Pulkova, Russia, in 1839. "In addition to his teaching, Struve's research was also significant in a number of areas, notably observation of double stars; determination of stellar parallaxes and distribution of stars in space; observation of planets, the moon, comets, and auroras; meridian measurements; statistical techniques; and the design and refinement of astronomical and geodetic instruments" (DSB, vol. XIII, p. 109). "At Pulkova, he determined anew the constant of aberration, but was chiefly occupied in working out the results of former years' work and in the completion of the geodetic operations in which he had been engaged during the greater part of his life. He had commenced them with a survey of Livonia (1816-19), which was followed by the measurement of an arc of meridian of over 34 in the Baltic provinces of Russia" ("Struve," Encyclopaedia Britannica, p. 641).

         Le Rouge et le Noir. Chronique du XIXe siècle

      A. Levavasseur, Paris 1831 - A Fine copy of Stendhal's masterpiece and one of the major literary works of 19th century France. A lovely copy, entirely untrimmed (pages 181 x 140 mm), with the original wrappers bound in to each volume (including the spine panels). Elegantly bound by Edouard Pagnant of Paris (1852-1916) in green half-morocco over marbled boards, spine with gilt titles and decorated columns, marbled end papers. Internal contents clean and fresh, quite rare and desireable with the original printed wrappers. Upper wrapper and titles with vignettes of Henry Monnier, engraved by Porret. Volume one vignette shows Julien Sorel appearing to Madame de Renal near a confessional; volume two shows Mathilde de La Mole holding the head of Julien Sorel.Stendhal's surprisingly modern bildungsroman about the rise and fall of the romantic Julian Sorel, who attempts to climb the rungs of French society and surpass the expectations of his modest, rural upbringing. The novel is not only an exploration of Julian's own psychological and spiritual struggles but also a satire of the clergy and French society in general. "The Red and The Black, like much of Stendhal's work, was not appreciated in his own day. It was only after Stendhal's death that critics began to realize what a revolutionary stylist he was. He's currently credited as one of the fathers of psychological realism due to the space he devotes to his characters' inner lives. "Stendhal's mind was of the first order? he wrote his two novels, which so few people have read, in a spirit of fearless liberty." (Joseph Conrad). Fine. [Attributes: First Edition]

         Letter Signed to 'The Revd. Mr. Jones', from Taplow Nr. Maidenhead, 4 June 1831. 'I thank you for the interesting communication you have been so obliging as to bring for me ...'

      1831 41 lines on 3pp. 4to, integral address leaf to the recipient 'to the care of T. Pringle Esq.'; old folds, a few marginal tears.A long letter signed by Wilberforce but written in a secretarial hand, to Jones, an American, who wished to be employed by the Church Missionary Society as a missionary to Hayti. Wilberforce thanks Jones 'for the interesting communications you have been so obliging as to bring for me. Let me beg you to put the printed works you have brought over, into the hands of Mr Pringle (Secretary to the Anti-Slavery Society) ... Mr Pringle confirms the statement in Mr Peter Williams's letter ... It is manifest and undeniable that Hayti is in a situation which the labors of a missionary at once duly zealous and prudent, might be the greatest of all blessings to that most interesting community ...' Wilberforce suggests that Jones contact members of the committee of the Society and that he, Wilberforce, will 'mention you to two or three friends of my own on that Body ...' After Wilberforce's signature, a PS reports that 'A complaint in my eyes obliges me to write to you by another hand'.William Wilberforce, the anti-slavery campaigner, was probably staying with Pascoe Grenfell, a 'zealous supporter', at his country seat at Taplow. Thomas Pringle was Secretary to the Anti-Slavery Society (residing at 7 Solly Terrace, Claremont Square, Glasgow, as written faintly in pencil on the address leaf). Peter Williams was the black Episcopalian minister from Harlem, who advocated emigration from America and at the time of this letter recommended Haiti as a place of settlement for black Americans. It is not known if Jones achieved his goal. PLEASE NOTE: For customers within the UK and the EU, this item is subject to VAT.

      December 10, 1831.

The document in small part, is asking for funding to "colonize the free colored population of this country, on the shores of Africa.......a colony at Liberia. If they came as pagans, let them go back as Christians.....our criminal calendar bears melancholy witness. Comparing the relative proportions of white and colored population in our state, more than nine-tenths of those who are arraigned at our police establishments and courts of sessions, and who occupy the cells of our bridewells, penitentiaries, and state prisons, are, we are constrained to say of the latter description."

This has been accomplished by the originality and simplicity of its Plan, together with the aid of minute yet distinct and elegant workmanship; for this little Volume will be found to contain between Forty and Fifty Thousand names of Places, Twenty Thousand of which have their latitudes and longitudes affixed, affording a body of information three times as extensive as that supplied by the generosity of Quarto Atlases. ***The Proprietors feel themselves bound to acknowledge with gratitude the Royal patronage which has been graciously extended to their undertaking, the general support which has attended its progress, and the high commendation it has received from almost every Public Journal in the Kingdom. Encouraged and Fostered by such favorable auspices they have in the production of the Family Cabinet Atlas, spared neither pains nor expence in obtaining the latest authorities and showing to what perfection and beauty the art of Map Engraving may be carried. They have now the satisfaction of knowing that this little Publication is every where acknowledged to be not only of the greatest utility in itself, but of a character that will entitle it to hold a permanent rank among the Fine and Useful Arts of the British Empire.'

        [De schutter- en jagerkorpsen. De legerkorpsen | Infanterie. De Oost- en West-Indische korpsen en marine | Kavallerie, artillerie, genie, etc.].[Utrecht, Johannes Paulus Houtman, 1831-1832]. 8vo (17.5 x 11.5 cm). 73 unnumbered lithographed prints plus 3 duplicates (leaf size 17 x 11 cm) with a brief caption in a round-hand script below each image, showing Dutch military personnel (including 1 woman) in their uniforms, the cavalry often shown on horseback and many others with flags, musical instruments, swords, firearms, backpacks, etc., coloured by a contemporary hand, probably for the publisher. Contemporary paperboard portfolio in a paperboard slipcase.

      Atlas Van Stolk 6823; Landwehr, Color plates 320; Muller, Historieplaten 6481 & suppl. 6481; WorldCat (3 copies); not in Colas; Hiler; Lipperheide. Rare series of lithographed costume prints, with fine and delicate images of the uniforms of all sections of the Dutch army and navy, including the overseas corps in the Dutch East and West Indies, all coloured by a contemporary hand, many in bright colours. They come from the most extensive Dutch print series of military uniforms ever published, with 165 known prints, but no set containing all 165 is known and the prints are not numbered. Each print shows a single figure, including 5 with cavalrymen on horseback. The only woman in our set, a "marketenster", carries a tapped keg and a funnel-shaped cup to provide jenever (Dutch gin) for the soldiers. Nine figures carry military flags, five have musical instruments and many carry swords, firearms or backpacks. 4 prints show army uniforms in the Dutch East and West Indies, while 2 show navy uniforms. In 13 prints the printed images with their captions have been cut out of the print and each mounted on an 8vo leaf of laid paper. These mounting leaves are somewhat browned, one or two badly, without affecting the print itself. 4 other leaves have their margins cut down, but 2 of these are duplicates. The printed image has been slightly shaved in 2 of the cut-down leaves and in one of the prints that has been cut out and mounted, but these affect only the tip of a bayonette in 1 print and one edge of the ground below the figure in 2 prints. The prints and their colouring generally remain in very good condition. The portfolio and slipcase are somewhat rubbed but still in good condition. A set of 73 rare prints of Dutch military uniforms, this copy providing some new information concerning the publishing history of the series.
