About this Item: Paris, Chanlaire & Mentelle, 1798-1799., 1799. Original outline colour. Dissected and laid on linen in two sections, 880 x 940 mm & 660 x 940 mm. A two-sheet wall map showing Prussia, Turkey, Egypt and Abyssinia in the west, and the Aral Sea in Kazakhstan, Persia, Arabia and Somalia in the east. Two inset maps show the routes from Siré to Gondar and from Gondar to the sources of the Nile. According to the inscription, the map is based on that of "the late J. B. Laborde" (Jean-Benjamin de Laborde [1734-94], a traveller and musician), with amendments; however we have been unable to trace a map of the region by him. - The vast map was published to satisfy French interest when their seemingly-unstoppable General Bonaparte turned his attention to the conquest of Egypt in 1798. Napoleon had captured Malta en route to Egypt, and the oval title vignette shows him overseeing the burial of the French dead under Pompey's Pillar after the capture of the important port city of Alexandria (July 1798). - After the defeat of the Mameluk army at the Battle of the Pyramids it was Napoleon's intention to subdue the rest of the Ottoman Empire before moving to threaten British interests in India. However, as the political situation in Paris was deteriorating, Napoleon decided to leave his army in Egypt in 1799, returning to France to become First Consul. His army was less fortunate, surrendering to the British at Alexandria in 1801. - This map is very scarce: the French citizens' interest in maps of the Orient evaporated as quickly as Napoleon's.

About this Item: München, Heinrich von Mayr, 1839-1840. Oblong elephant folio (39.4 x 51.7 cm). Ten instalments, each of six finely lithographed and hand-coloured plates with one explanatory text leaf, for a total of 60 plates, and a hand-coloured lithographed pictorial title and dedication page; in ten uniform hand-coloured pictorial wrappers.= Very rare complete, hand-coloured copy, as issued, of the magnificent, large, illustrations of the Holy Land, Middle East and Malta. The original wrappers are hand-coloured as well. The Nuremberg artist Heinrich von Mayr (1806-1871) accompanied the Duke Maximilian II of Bavaria (1811-1864; from 1848 onwards King of Bavaria) and his entourage as a personal painter on an eight-month "Grand Tour" from Bavaria to the Orient and back. "Ermunternd wirkten die ersten Aufträge des Herzogs Maximilian, welcher, nachdem der junge Künstler 1832 und 1833 am Hofe des Fürsten von Thurn und Taxis mehrere größere Gemälde, Cavalcaden, Jagden und dgl. ausgeführt hatte, denselben als artistischen Begleiter auf seine orientalische Reise 1838 und 1839 mitnahm. Die Titelverleihung zum herzoglichen Cabinetsmaler war nur eine auszeichnende Förmlichkeit, da der Herzog den Künstler persönlich hochhielt und mit wahrer Freundschaft ehrte. Als Frucht dieser Aegypten, Nubien, Palästina, Syrien und Malta umfassenden Reise gab M. die beiden großen, damals gerechtes Auffehen erregenden Prachtwerke heraus "Malerische Ansichten aus dem Orient" (München und Leipzig 1839 ff., lithogr. von F. Kaiser, 60 Blätter)" (Deutsche Biographie). They travelled from Munich to Venice, Corfu, Patras, Athens, Alexandria, and Cairo to the Holy Land. They then travelled via Malta back to Munich, arriving in September 1838. The illustrations depict ancient monuments as well as ordinary life, including views of street life in Cairo, various views of Bethlehem, Nazareth and Jerusalem, Karnak, and Luxor; the Sphinx and Great Pyramids of Gizeh, and many others, including Alexandria, Malta, etc., etc. Each illustration has a different, broad, pictorial border. Some letterings heightend in gold. The text is in two columns: German and French. Title with two pieces of paper stuck to the back, some small marginal tears and an occasional brown spot. Overall a fine, clean copy of this rarity. Kainbacher, 265 ("RRR - Rarität"). Seller Inventory # 67631

De la Carte de la France et: CASSINI Jacques;

About this Item: 1733. Couverture rigide. Condition: Bon. 2 parties en un volume in-4 (238 x 183 mm), 21 ff., [1] f. bl., 22 ff. Maroquin rouge, roulette dorée encadrant les plats avec armes dorées au centre, dos à nerfs orné, pièce de titre de maroquin noir, roulette dorée sur les chasses et les coupes, tranches dorées, quelques minimes frottements et un petit accroc en coiffe supérieure (reliure de l?époque). Ce manuscrit de la première moitié du XVIIIe siècle est le compte-rendu des travaux de triangulation que Jacques Cassini entreprit en 1733 pour mesurer la perpendiculaire à la méridienne de Paris, continuant ainsi l??uvre de son père Jean-Dominique Cassini. Ces Mémoires furent lus en 1733 et 1734 à l?Académie des Sciences et imprimés. La méridienne de Cassini, un rôle historique important. En 1669, en France, l'abbé Picard va être amené à mesurer un degré de méridien, dans le but défini par Colbert de cartographier la France de façon géométrique; la région ?prototype? est la région parisienne, l'emplacement de la méridienne se trouve à l'est de Paris, entre Malvoisine et Sourdon-Amiens. En 1683, ?Sa Majesté ordonne aux Mathématiciens de l'Académie des Sciences de continuer l'entreprise [de Picard] et de prolonger vers le Septentrion & vers le Midi jusques aux confins du Royaume, une Ligne Méridienne qui passât par le milieu de l'Observatoire de Paris.? Dès 1683, donc, les travaux débutent: Jean-Dominique Cassini, chargé des opérations, se dirige vers le Sud et de La Hire part vers le Nord. Après la mort de Colbert (septembre 1683), les travaux s'arrêtent, reprennent en 1700-1701, avec, pour aider son père la participation de Jacques Cassini; ils s'arrêtent de nouveau pour n'être repris et terminés qu'en 1718. Jacques Cassini, qui avait été associé à son père en 1700-1701, et qui était entré à l'Académie, en fut chargé avec Maraldi et de la Hire le fils. La méridienne de Paris dite aussi méridienne des Cassini joint Dunkerque au nord, au Canigou, près de Perpignan et de Collioure, au sud en passant par le centre de l'Observatoire de Paris. Elle comporte au total cinquante-quatre triangles. Pour la carte de France, la méridienne apporta des améliorations considérables. Avant son tracé, il était supposé que Paris était sur le même méridien que Montpellier. La nouvelle carte de France, «où sont marqués les triangles qui ont servi à déterminer la Méridienne de Paris» scellera le fait qu'à partir de 1718 le méridien de Paris passe par la ville de Carcassonne. De nouvelles mesures vers l'Est et l'Ouest?pour définir la forme de la Terre ! Le titre de la communication que fit Jacques Cassini, en novembre 1718, à l'Académie des Sciences et celui du mémoire, beaucoup plus étendu, qu'il publia en 1720 montrent quelle place tenait aussi dans ses préoccupations le problème de la forme de la terre. Car, si ses mesures sur les arcs de méridien étaient exactes, elles concluaient nettement à un ellipsoïde allongé vers les pôles, ce qui fut le point de départ de nombreuses polémiques entre les partisans de Cassini et ceux de Huygens et Newton. Toutefois, Cassini ne perdit pas de vue le but qu'avaient poursuivi les ministres en fournissant les fonds nécessaires à ces mesures et les résultats pratiques qu'ils en espéraient. Dans son mémoire de 1720, il passa en revue les cartes existantes de la France. Il montra combien l'incertitude qui régnait sur les points où passait la méridienne avait faussé la position des villes, et insista sur les avantages que les cartographes retireraient de la détermination d'une nouvelle ligne fondamentale, perpendiculaire au méridien de Paris. De 1718 à 1733, rien ne fut tenté, ni pour obtenir une détermination plus précise de la longueur du degré, ni pour décider de la véritable forme de la terre, ni pour assurer l'exécution de la carte. Mais à cette dernière date commencent des opérations nouvelles. Cassini partit le 1er juin 1733, accompagné de ses fils, de Maraldi, de l'abbé de la Grive et de Chevalier. Ils poussèrent jusqu'à Granville. Ils relièrent, par un dern. Seller Inventory # 229

About this Item: Wien, Wappler 1784 - 1787., 1787. Erster bis Dritter Jahrgang (alles Erschienene), in 6 Bdn, gebunden. Mit 12 gest. Frontispices, 1 gest. Tafel und 3 gefalt. gest. Notenbeilagen. Dekorative grüne HLdr.-Bde. des 19. Jhdts., mit Rückenschild und goldgepr. Freimaurersymbolen am Rücken. Kopfgoldschnitt. Wolfstieg 506; Kloß 22; Taute 181: " Die erste bedeutende maurerische Zeitschrift. Obwohl in ca. 1000 Ex. aufgelegt, sind vollständige Sammlungen dieses unschätzbaren Quellenwerks doch äusserst selten " - Erschien in 12 Vierteljahrsheften. - Das von Joseph von Sonnenfelnd angeregte und von dem Wiener Dichter und Zensor Alois Blumauer (1755-1798) redigierte Journal "hat später vielen freimaurerischen Zeitschriften zum Vorbild gedient und wurde von ihnen bis tief ins 19. Jahrhundert hinein ausgeschöpft und immer wieder mit und ohne Quellenangabe nachgedruckt" (Kuéss/Scheichelbauer, 200 Jahre Freimaurerei in Österreich, 1959, p. 51). - Das erste Heft des zweiten Jahrgangs enthält auf einer gest. Notentafel den Erstdruck "Zur Gesellenreise", SS. 117-118 enthalten den Text von Joseph Franz Ratschky in der Version des Logenbruders Mozarts, Johann Baptist Holzer, der auf dem Notenblatt auch als Komponist ("von Br. H++r") angegeben wird. Es wird vermutet, dass Mozart Holzers Version des Liedes bei seinem eigenen Beförderungsritual in den Gesellengrad hörte und sich davon zur "Gesellenreise" (KV 468) inspirieren ließ. - Des weiteren enthält das 2. Vj. des ersten Bandes einen Notendruck auf 2 Bll. mit der gleichen Signatur, "Im Namen der Armen", das eine starke strukturelle Ähnlichkeit mit der heutigen, österreichischen Hymne "Land der Berge, Land am Strome" aufweist. Seit den 1960er Jahren diskutieren Musikwissenschaftler, ob die Musik der Landshymne nun von Mozart, wie lange angenommen, oder doch von Holzer stammt. - Im 1. Vj. des ersten Jahres mit einem Beitrag von Ignaz von Born "Ueber die Mysterien der Aegyptier", der als Vorbild für "Sarastro" in Mozarts Zauberflöte angesehen wird. - Aus der Charlesworth Masonic Library. - Titel mi kl. zeitgen. Freimaurerstempel (Zirkel und Winkel mit Initialen W E). Wenig stockfleckig, insgesamt sehr gutes und frisches Exemplar!. Seller Inventory # 22713

About this Item: , 1859-60., 1859. Albumen print from a waxed paper negative (calotype). Image Size: 26.5 x 19 cm. (10.5 x 11.5 inches). "Born to a wealthy family in the north of France, Louis De Clercq [1836-1901] was a military courier for Napoleon III during the Austrian campaign of 1859. When he was sent by the Marquis de Vogüé to Latakieh in early September 1859, Louis De Clercq was twenty-three years old and already a passionate archaeologist. He was to join the geographer and explorer Emmanuel Guillaume Rey in his exploratory mission of Syria. Rey was also actively involved with photography, and it is likely that the two photographed together, and even influenced one another in their work. However, Rey’s photographs remained unknown, while De Clercq, upon his return to France, published his ‘Voyage en Orient, 1859-60,’ six extraordinary albums of photographs in five volumes, consisting of 222 plates of rare beauty as well as of scientificand archaeological interest. The area covered during De Clercq’s trip was from Syria in the north to Egypt in the south. Most of his photographs deal with the ancient architecture of the Near East, but they are of a most unusual fashion and seen as never before through a modern eye" (Perez).Though De Clercq self-published these volumes in a reported edition of 50, only about a dozen sets--both intact and broken--are known to have survived, most of them in institutional collections.

About this Item: Le Normant 1811 -, Paris, 1811. Reliés. 10 tomes + 1 atlas In-8 + 1 atlas in-folio. Reliure d?époque demi-veau glacé brun havane. Dos lisses finement et richement ornés. Toutes tranches marbrées. Ex-libris sur château Dampierre, exemplaire d?Honoré d?Albert (1802-1867), huitième duc de Luynes. L?atlas renferme (2) ff. (faux-titre, titre), 1 portrait de Chardin par C. Macret, 1 grande carte en couleurs dépliante, 85 gravures (cartes, vues et figures) sur 63 planches hors-texte figurant costumes, plans, bas-reliefs, etc. Très bel exemplaire dans une belle demi-reliure de l?époque, avec une prove- nance prestigieuse. Rare édition très recherchée, considérée comme la meilleure car établie d?après les précédentes éditions et enrichie des notes du célèbre orientaliste Louis-Mathieu LANGLÈS (1763-1824), fondateur et premier directeur de l?École spéciale des Langues Orientales (où il enseignait le persan) et conservateur des manuscrits orientaux à la Bibliothèque impériale. Jean Chardin fit un premier voyage en Perse de 1665 à 1670. Devant les difficultés faites en France aux protestants, il repartit en 1671, retourna en Perse, visita deux fois Persépolis, se rendit en Inde et revint en Europe en 1680 par le cap de Bonne-Espérance. Doté d?un sens aigu de l?observation, ses récits de voyages gardent encore aujourd?hui un grand intérêt ; ils sont une source importante sur la culture et la civilisation persanes de l?époque.
