Description de l'article : Cividale, Gerardus de Lisa de Flandria, 1480., 1480. 4to. (93) ff., wanting terminal blank. Bound in contemporary ornate blind-tooled calf over wooden boards, spine with two raised bands; remains of two metallic clasps with engraved devices. Initials calligraphed in red and blue throughout. Housed in a custom clamshell box. Scarce early edition of this landmark work of Western civilization: the first printed book on food and drink. "De Honesta Voluptate" is also an invaluable source for cultural historians tracing early trade routes with the East: Platina's use and discussion of ginger, rice, cinnamon, saffron, cloves, oranges, and so on indicates the already substantial commercial relationship between East and West by the mid-15th century, primarily via Arab traders. A classic text of the Renaissance, no other complete copy in an early binding has been seen in auction records of the last 50 years. - Platina, the future librarian of the Vatican, composed the present work in the early 1460s while on a summer retreat in the hills of Tuscany. The ten books of "De Honesta Voluptate" discuss the origin, properties, and uses of culinary ingredients ranging from herbs and spices to fruits, vegetables, and birds, beasts, and fish. Platina records some 240 recipes employing these ingredients; yet his guide is more than a mere cook-book, and contains much advice on 'the art of good living': of eating and drinking in moderation, of the value of sexual intercourse, and so on. - As the only such printed record of its time, the text of "De Honesta Voluptate" is a fascinating source on the use of exotics in European cooking at an early date. Trade routes reaching as far as China ensured that wealthy Europeans had access to a sometimes surprising variety of spices, grains, and fruits. The most important influence came from the Arab world, particularly via Sicily and Spain. "Arabic influence was clearly welcomed by Italian taste. Numerous recipes call for relatively exotic imported ingredients: aniseed, dates, pomegranates, rice, and oranges. the recipes show an obvious Arabic influence where they use sugar and cinnamon sprinkled over an otherwise savory dish, or sauces flavored with raisins as well as prunes" (Adamson, Regional Cuisines of Medieval Europe, p. 92). Perhaps the most important Eastern contribution to Platina's culinary repertoire was in fact sugar - without which, he laments, the ancient Romans suffered. "Sugar is brought not only from Arabia," he writes (fol. 16), "but also from Crete and Sicily". Discussions of saffron, rose-water, cinnamon, pistachios, coriander, cloves, pomegranates (named after the Muslim kingdom of Granada), rice, almonds, and pepper are also found in Platina's text. Peterson ("The Arabian Influence on Western European Cooking") indeed suggests that "there is reason to believe that Europe made use of Arab cooking manuscripts. in the compilation of their own cooking texts". - "De Honesta Voluptate" was first printed in 1475 at Rome; a subsequent, but undated edition is assumed to predate the present, third edition - the last printed before Platina's death in 1481. All early editions are rare in trade, and the present copy is the only complete example we have seen in a contemporary or indeed near-contemporary binding. - One or two faint marginal annotations in a contemporary hand. Some finger-soiling and toning to title and scattered leaves - commensurate with use - but generally a fresh and very charming example, in what may be its original binding. Front board a little scuffed; some chipping to head and foot of spine; lower clasp with remains of early leather substitute; front endpaper renewed. Small burn hole, affecting a few letters on f 44; small wormhole also affecting a few letters through four leaves of index. Engraved bookplate on pastedown, ca. 1750, with Latin motto: "I am the possession of the Cloister of Wessenbrunn. Ho! Restore me to my master: so right demands". HC (Add) 13052. Goff P-763.

Description de l'article : Frankfurt am Main, 1591. Hardcover. Etat : Near Fine. (1) f. engraved title, (3) ff., 30 pp., (1) f., (1) f. Mendae quaedam (misbound), (2) ff. engraved map, XLII half-page engravings with letterpress captions, (1) f. engraved title to plates (misbound), (12) ff., with half-page engravings at the dedication and the ad lectorem praefatio, woodcut headpieces, initials and tailpieces. Lacking the final blank (unsigned K6) and the rarely found colophon to the plates (unsigned H2), quire K is misbound (see collation note below). Bound in nineteenth-century red morocco by Belz-Niédrée (signed inside upper cover), spine in seven compartments with gilt title and "V. M." monograms (Victor Masséna, Duke of Rivoli, Prince of Essling [1836-1910]), covers with gilt double fillet borders, gold-tooled arms at center of upper and lower covers, gilt double fillet to board edges, gilt inside dentelles, blue moiré silk doublures and gardes, marbled flyleaves, silk ribbon bookmark, all edges gilt. Rare first edition of Theodor de Bry's (1528-98) great illustrated work on 'Florida', in a copy fit for one of the consummate collectors of 16th-century illustrated books, lavishly bound in red morocco with the gold-tooled arms on the upper and lower covers for the Prince of Essling (1836-1959): its 42 copper engravings representing the earliest European encounter with native North American culture are in this copy remarkably fine strikes, richly inked with excellent plate tone. Famously describing a region then extending across much of the southeast of the present-day United States, the work represents the first printing of the narrative of Jacques Le Moyne de Morgues (c. 1533-88), which Lawrence Wroth has characterized as "the most informative and satisfactory of all books on the Huguenot colony in Florida [the first attempt by a European nation to found a colony north of the Rio Grande]. The large map, the first to show the French colony, and the fascinating plates of Florida scenes and life engraved by De Bry after Le Moyne's drawings, make this an indispensable Florida item" (Streeter, 1172), and a vivid pictorial record of this crucial period of American history in general, as well as an indispensable work for understanding the culture of the now lost Timucua people in particular. The narrative represents the second part of De Bry's Grand Voyages, a series issued in thirteen parts over a period of nearly forty years, and is one of the most desirable illustrated works for the collector of North Americana, being one of only two parts by De Bry which deal exclusively with North America (Thomas Harriot's Virginia appeared in 1590). Le Moyne, a member of the ill-fated 1564 French expedition led by Jean Ribault (1520-65) and René de Laudonnière (c. 1529-74), describes and depicts the first contact between the French explorers and the Timucua, as well as the establishment of Fort Caroline (near modern-day Jacksonville) and Charlesfort (modern Parris Island, South Carolina). The majority of De Bry's engravings examine the rites and customs of the Timucua, with plates devoted to their religious practice, methods of warfare (including the dismemberment of captives), manner of dress, agriculture, cuisine, architecture, games, marriage ceremonies, and other celebrations. Included here are the famous depictions of the Timucua hunting while cloaked in the full hides of deer, fending off giant alligators, and searching for gold. The final plate depicts the killing of Pierre Gambie, a symbol of the deteriorating relationships with the natives that, along with the Spanish attacks of 1565, ultimately doomed the fledgling Huguenot colonies in Florida. The present copy is complete except for the (unsigned H2) colophon to the plates, which, in any case, is rarely present ("Stevens could not find it in forty of the copies which he examined" -- Church, p. 334), and the integral blank (unsigned K6) at the end.

Description de l'article : About 60 bound notebooks and about a dozen unbound sheets, many finely illustrated with brush and ink, with colors. [Japan: ca. 1839-ca. 1912]. A fascinating and important manuscript archive of notebooks and sheets, many with illustrations, describing the rules of gastronomic etiquette as prescribed by the Ogasawara School of etiquette, developed in the Kamakura period (1185-1333) and still practiced today. The instructions mostly pertain to the ritualistic preparation and serving of the food on a series of trays known as honzen ryori ("main tray cuisine") which was the dominant style of banqueting for the elite from the Muromachi period through the Edo period. It remained the most formal style of eating through the 19th century and is still used today in certain formal ceremonies. For a full account of honzen ryori, see Eric C. Rath's wonderful "Honzen Dining. The Poetry of Formal Meals in Late Medieval and Early Modern Japan" in Japanese Foodways, Past and Present (ed. by Rath and Stephanie Assmann), 2010, pp. 19-41. See also Rath's Food and Fantasy in Early Modern Japan (2010), chap. 3. One of the prevalent themes in the illustrated notebooks is the concept of the "five elements" (the connection to the five organs; air, wind, fire, water, and earth; a tray composed of rice, pickles, soup, vegetable, and a main course; wood, fire, earth, gold, and water; etc.). Many of the albums contain finely drawn illustrations of trays each containing five seasonal festival dishes. Also depicted are knives in ceremonial positions with rich meanings, instructions on the presentations of certain foods on trays (for instance, black beans, kelp, fish, carrots, etc.), displays according to the seasons, the five different tastes and their relation to the five organs, etc. There are frequent notes stating that these notebooks contain secret information passed down to the next generation. Another notebook is concerned with shimadai (presentation trays that resemble an island because of their wavy shapes with elaborate displays). The paper of this notebook contains mica for an enhanced effect. Numerous trays are displayed with illustrations of pickles and lobsters. Other illustrated notebooks are concerned with how to display seafood on a medium-sized dish (these are very finely illustrated), otekake and mizu shugi (beginning of the year festivity displays of food), rules of the 5 - 5 - 3 tray setting with excellent pictures, shiki sankon (three toasts of sake), another album devoted to shimadai, an album depicting a white fish terrine with elaborate cross-sections (kamaboko), an album depicting trays and tools of the ceremony, an unillustrated album contain many menus, an album describing how to ceremonially carve fish and fowl, another album devoted to knife techniques of the Ogasawara School with beautiful illustrations of knives and chop sticks, etc. Another ten notebooks, all illustrated, are devoted to the theme of koshirae (recipes, instructions, and techniques for the preparation of ceremonial meals), the etiquette for eating and drinking, secret cooking techniques, rules for the ceremonial offering of sake, and the rules of etiquette for engagements and weddings. Again, the illustrations are fine and detailed. There are a further eleven illustrated albums concerned with the rules of presentation and etiquette for a variety of ceremonies. Another eight albums, unillustrated, contain menus and recipes. Finally, there is a group of about twenty booklets giving menus and recipes. There is also a group of sheets which appear to be shopping lists. Another sheet is a bibliography of cook books. All in fine condition. N° de réf. du vendeur 6260

Description de l'article : Philadelphia: G. C. Bingham, 1854., 1854. Single sheet, mounted and framed, (24 x 31 inches). Fine engraved print with original hand color in full. First edition. Engraved by Sartain after the 1852 painting by Bingham. One of the leading American genre painters of the mid-nineteenth century, George Caleb Bingham (1811-1879) created some of the most memorable views of American small town life. Bingham was fascinated by the democratic process and by the ways in which it permeated everyday existence in communities far removed from the big cities. "The County Election" was part of a six-painting Election Series; the other paintings were "Stump Orator" (1847), "Country Politician" (1849), "Canvassing for a Vote" (1852), "Stump Speaking" (1853), and "The Verdict of the People" (1854-55). "Forgetting perhaps that Bingham had a strong political bias of a militant Whig campaigner for state office, it would seem that recent students of his epic paintings on the American voting process have overlooked the subtle but incisive element of social criticism lodged in his famous work, 'The County Election.' Bingham, it seems, had serious misgivings about the introduction of universal manhood suffrage, with its equalitarian impact on American life, and he particularly resented it when in 1846 he felt he had been unfairly deprived of office by the gerrymandering activity of a Missouri political rival. On its surface, 'The County Election' appears to celebrate the new political ferment that Americans from Bangor, Maine, to the Western frontier were experiencing at mid-century. However, read more carefully as a document of social history, this canvas suggests that Bingham, like his contemporary, James Fenimore Cooper, saw the stability and integrity of the American milieu staggering under the impact of a too rapidly expanding body politic and the rigors of a laissez-faire economic system" (Westervelt, p. 46). "Intemperance was also associated with corrupt politics. George Caleb Bingham's 'County Election' of 1852 depicts the customary practice of candidates' serving free liquor to woo voters before an election In Bingham's painting, voters are enjoying their whiskey, with the result that some are too drunk even to stand, all before a banner hanging overhead that intones, 'The Will of the People, the Supreme Law.' Such scenes, describing a purchased and likely inebriated electorate, delivered a slap to the actual practice of direct democracy" (Barter, ed., p. 111). Robert F. Westervelt, "The Whig Painter of Missouri," The American Art Journal, vol. 2, no. 1, Spring 1970. Judith A. Barter, ed., "Art and Appetite: American Painting, Culture, and Cuisine.".

Description de l'article : Ohne Ort und Jahr, um 1940, 4° (ca. 27 x 21 cm). 4 1/2 Seiten auf 4 Blättern. Blau getöntes Bütten-Papier. Unveröffentlichte autobiographische Aufzeichnungen und Traumnotizen, in denen sich Saint-Exupéry mit seiner Angst und seinen Angstträumen auseinandersetzt und die Traumvisionen in vier kleineren Zeichnungen visualisiert: durchdringende Augen, zwei Personen mit großen Augen, eine in gedrungener, einem Gnom ähnelnder Physiognomie und eine Gruppe sich umarmende gesichtslose Gestalten. Möglicherweise die Vorarbeiten zu einem größeren Werk. - Die meisten Werke Saint-Exupérys haben einen autobiographischen Ausgangspunkt, der ihn zu philosophischen Betrachtungen weiterleitet. Im vorliegenden Manuskript reflektiert Saint-Exupéry in Traumsequenzen seine persönliche Situation und auch die Beziehung zu seiner Frau Consuelo (1901-1979), die er in Argentinien kennengelernt und am 22. April 1931in Nizza geheiratet hatte. - Der Text der nicht nummerierten Blätter in Auszügen: [Blatt 1:] "Mauvais souvenir de la mère. Dans la cuisine nous déjeunons. Mon frère François presque en pleur et je suis très fier de ne pas craquer. Je remarque en passant qu'il y a balancement entre nous deux: nous ne sommes jamais de mauvaise humeur en même temps. Je vais au jardin en plein soleil bêcher mon jardin [.] Le souvenir surtout de la chambre d'en haut à St Raphaël: le luxe, l'odeur d'eucalyptus, le bonheur. (Presque tout cela est rêvé !) [.] Il y a un obstacle sur ma route vers le bonheur. Cet obstacle est tombé un soir [.]" - [Blatt 2, recto:] "J'examine [.] Peut-être vivre un souhait de mort mais la mort m'eut refusé: je dois vivre. Le retour à l'enfance aussi m'est refusé et je dois revenir vers les hommes. L'angoisse d'un coup de téléphone une angoisse presque [.] avec une femme qui ne me plaisait qu'à demi [.] plongé dans le désespoir en me faisant croire que j'étais déshonoré [.]" - [Blatt 2, verso:] "[.] un examen d école [.] aussi pour un dictionnaire échangé contre un pistolet automatique. Je souffre dramatiquement [.] au point d'en rougir et de me faire croire coupable. Presque miséreux à être cru coupable plutôt que d avoir [.] menace de chantage et je renonce et la panique me prend. Exaltation de voler, de s'envoler, de n'avoir pas à être en contact avec les autres sur les jugements des hommes. Horreur des jugements portés sur moi, des réflexions . me paralyse [.] Déshonoré, mais pourquoi. Tout ce sens tragique de l honneur. Violon, solfège [.] 'Te voilà encore vautré au salon.' lisant à 9 ou 10 ans les livres de la bibliothèque rose [.]" - [Blatt 3:] Mit 4 kleinen Federzeichnungen im oberen Blattdrittel. "[.] Mon angoisse me fait penser à un train en marche [.] La femme de chambre représente madame de [.] chargée de nous prévenir Consuelo et moi de l arrivée des hommes de loi qui nous [.] notre maison. Elle exprime peut-être aussi la part mauvaise de C[onsuelo] et dont je ne puis me défaire et que je traine définitivement avec moi, et ces menaces [.] Les domestiques sont des déménageurs. Je vais trouver mon père, la force, la fortune [.] Alors je quitte tous les biens de ce monde et ne gardant sur moi que mes vêtements trempés je mourrai dans la mer et la pluie et le dénuement [.] Des vieux souvenirs d enfance [.]" - [Blatt 3, halb beschriftet:] "'Je me tuerai de chagrin?' . Et j'avais peur d avoir [.] aujourd'hui ma femme, l'horreur de la mort sans pardon [.] La concession." - Stellenw. Einrisse in der Knickfalte. - Äußerst selten; wie überhaupt alle Autographen von ihm. N° de réf. du vendeur 51682

Description de l'article : Madrid: en la imprenta real, 1802, 1802. 2 volumes, folio (307 x 200 mm) gathered and signed in fours. Contemporary tree sheep, spines gilt in compartments, red morocco labels (slightly amended with small onlays to read "Agricultura del moro"), marbled endpapers, red edges. Half-title to vol. II only, lacking in vol. I, text printed in two columns, in Spanish and Arabic. Joints rubbed, occasional spotting or light foxing, a few small stains, but generally crisp, a very good copy. First edition. Ibn al-'Awwam (in full, Abu Zakariya Yahya ibn Muhammad ibn Ahmad ibn 'Al-Awwam Al-Ishbili) was an Arab agriculturist who flourished at Seville in southern Spain in the later 12th century. His lengthy handbook entitled in Arabic Kitab al-Filahah (Book on Agriculture) is the most comprehensive treatment of the subject in medieval Arabic, and one of the most important medieval works on the subject in any language. He is the most renowned of all the Andalusi agronomists because his book was the first to be published and translated into a modern language in this edition, then into French by Clément-Mullet in 1864-67, and subsequently into Urdu in 1927. It was thus for a long time the only source of reference on medieval Andalusi agronomy. Moreover it is one of the few works of this genre that has come down to us more or less complete. Ibn al-'Awwam appears to have been an aristocratic landowner, with personal practical experience of cultivation and land management. He was well-read in the agricultural writings of his predecessors and cites information from as many as 112 authors, especially the Geoponica of Cassianus Bassus, the Book of Nabataean Agriculture attributed to Ibn Wahshiyya, and many Andalusian Arabic authors (the great majority to Ibn Bassal, Abu al-Khayr al-Ishbili or Ibn Hajjaj, all three of whom wrote books about agriculture in the later 11th century in southern Spain, copies of which have survived only partly and incompletely). The work is divided into 34 chapters, the first 30 dealing with crops and the remaining 4 with livestock. A 35th chapter, on dogs, was apparently planned but no trace of it survives. The book describes the cultivation of 585 different plants, and gives cures for diseases of trees and vines, as well as diseases and injuries to horses and cattle. The translator worked at the Royal Library in Madrid. In 1781 he sent a letter to his patron discussing this work, in which he stresses the importance of Ibn al-'Awwam as a source for learning about agricultural methods which could be applied in Spain. The introduction of Islamic methods of agriculture had a profound influence on Spanish cuisine. One of the first innovations achieved by the Moors was the installation of irrigation systems which allowed the harvesting of arid areas, thereby expanding and improving vegetable plantations. The Arab agronomists also introduced natural produce from Asia previously unknown to the Spanish. Many of these continue to be basic ingredients in today's Spanish cuisine and include most spices, as well as produce such as saffron, apricots, artichokes, carob, sugar, aubergines, grapefruits, carrots, coriander and rice. These ingredients remain a firm point of reference for Spanish and Andalusian recipes, featuring in for example pinchito moruno andaluz, a dish normally made with chicken, saffron, cumin and coriander. Another notable example is what is widely regarded as the Spanish national dish, paella, whose main ingredients are rice and saffron. Thanks to the success of such crops, Spain today is one of the main producers of saffron. In fact, along with Iran, Spain produces 80 per cent of the crop worldwide. provenance: Sir John Sinclair (1754-1835), Scottish politician and writer on agriculture (Statistical Account of Scotland) and finance (vol. 1 with his initialled note concerning the present work to front free endpaper and a note presenting the volume to him in Cadiz to verso of title). Later bookplate of the Royal Agricultural Society of England to front pastedown of vol. 2. See Arcadian Library p. 204. N° de réf. du vendeur 94111

Description de l'article : Japan, 1796. Large 8vo, pp. [108]; old Japanese "grass" script with Chinese elements, 18 extraordinary double-page watercolor illustrations; sewn and bound in the oriental style (fukurotoji) in original speckled beige wrappers; very slightly worn, preserving the original manuscript label label; a very good, attractive example, beautifully illustrated. An account of a voyage through the Izu Islands, a chain of islands south of Tokyo Bay, including Hachijojima, Hidojima, Arajima, Ooshima, and Miyakejima. Apparently one of three volumes, but this trip is complete unto itself. Apparently this voyage came as the result of an order from the Kansei Shogunate. During this period there were a number of people who traveled at the government's request to record geographical and cultural observations all over Japan, including Ino Tadataka who is known for completing the first map of Japan. Among these travelers was a local magistrate by the name of "Ochu" ("Taichu") who lead an expedition in 1796 to the Izu Islands. With him was the artist Kodera Osai, and it is his art work that graces this spectacular manuscript. The textual account of the voyage, dated April to December, 1796, is also likely his. In it he records excursions to temples (on the island of Hachijo he used the Soufukuji Temple as lodging), recounts his experiences with the local cuisines (he's a fan of sake), takes note of the silk and weaving industry, and records incidents of family life (in one particular household he notes that there were 14 to 15 children, all of whom were hungry). He describes the flora and fauna (but not in scientific terms) and tells of fish, sea turtles, frogs, etc., as well as the local agriculture, mountains, and bamboo forests. He also has an interesting account of a family trying to fix their roof, and mentions that he can see Mt. Fuji in the distance across the sea. He also tells of the costume of the island inhabitants, how they fix their hair, how the women occupy themselves during the day and how they take care of their husbands at night. On the return voyage a storm was encountered and Kodera recounts the rough trip back. The illustrations include a wonderful cartographic illustration of Hachijo, the first island he visited, showing the topography, the villages, trees, a path, etc.; 2 botanical illustrations; 3 illustrations of fish; 3 illustrations of villages showing inhabitants at work and play; a rock lobster; a sea turtle being pulled and prodded ashore by nearly naked natives; two native women (one bare-breasted) before a mirror, as well as other general scenes of the islands and the inhabitants.

Description de l'article : Willem Silvius, Antwerp, 1576. First Edition in Italian. 201 x 144 mm. (8 x 5 3/4"). [8] p.l., 328 (i.e. 408), [30] pp. (lacking final blank).Translated by François Flory. First Edition in Italian. QUITE APPEALING LATER 19TH CENTURY HONEY BROWN CRUSHED MOROCCO, HANDSOMELY GILT, covers with gilt fillet border and delicately tooled cornerpieces, spine richly gilt in compartments tooled in the style of Bozerian, with floral tools emanating from a central circlet on a densely stippled ground, gilt titling, turn-ins ruled in gilt with floral corner tooling, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Engraved printer's device on title and 60 FULL-PAGE COSTUME WOODCUTS by Assuerus van Londerseel after Nicolay. Front pastedown with bookplate of James Cowan; front free endpaper with bookplate of Allan Heywood Bright (see below). Colas II, 2203; Hiler, pp. 656-57; Blackmer 1196 (1580 ed.); Adams N-251. Pressed and perhaps lightly washed (but with plenty of strength to the paper and the illustrations), approximately forty percent of the gatherings with small, inoffensive stain at lower outer corner, one leaf with candle wax spot, final leaf slightly soiled, otherwise a fine copy with only the most trivial imperfections, the text consistently fresh and clean, and the attractive retrospective binding very bright and entirely unworn. This is a really excellent copy of a work that Colas says represents the finest and most influential introduction to Turkish costume, not to mention the first study of its kind to appear in Western Europe. This first edition in Italian reprises (in slightly reduced form) the copperplate engravings of Louis Danet, which appeared in the first edition, published in Lyon in 1567. The Royal Geographer to Henri II, Nicolas de Nicolay, Seigneur d'Arfeville & de Belair (1517-83), was ordered by his king to join a number of other scholars on an embassy to Istanbul and to complete a thorough survey of the trip and places visited. The resulting report includes detailed descriptions and intricate engravings of some of the earliest portrayals to reach the West of the inhabitants of Algiers, Tripoli, the Barbary Coast, Turkey, Greece, Persia, and Armenia. Nicolay depicts the clothing of numerous occupations (soldiers, merchants, lawyers) and social strata (slaves, ladies, paupers) along with descriptions of cuisine, manners, city life, and bathing customs. The handsome binding is unsigned, but the design and delicate gilt embellishment of corners and spine compartments suggests that it might have been done by someone like Tout. Previous owner Allan Heywood Bright (1862-1941) was a businessman and Liberal MP for Oswestry. Building on his family's long history of collecting, Bright specialized in esoteric and particularly rare books. His library sold for nearly £5 million at Christie's in 2014. While this book is not extraordinarily rare, it seldom appears in the kind of desirable condition seen here.

Todos los detalles de los oficios de servicio de una gran casa son tratados en esta obra. De su autor pocos datos tenemos, era natural de Loja( Granada) y dedica la obra al duque de Uceda por lo que podemos intuir que podía tratarse de alguien vinculado a la casa de Uceda. Gallardo menciona que vio el ejemplar que anota en la biblioteca de la catedral de Córdoba(falto del fol 192) pero no sabe si continuaba la obra porque no vio ejemplar para comparar. Salvá no lo tuvo, y de su rareza da idea que hoy en día solo hay un ejemplar conocido en bibliotecas institucionales españolas(Biblioteca Palacio Real).Hay un solo ejemplar en la British Library y dos en la biblioteca Nacional de Francia.

Two Unpublished Manuscripts]: All's Well That Ends: EDGERLY, Albert Webster

Description de l'article : Etat : Near Fine. Two handwritten manuscripts by Albert Webster Edgerly, the founder of the Ralstonism Movement, a late 19th Century movement that stressed a healthy diet, questionable science, and the use of personal magnetism to control others. The manuscripts consist of:1. All's Well That Ends Well: The Great Story of the Day! Handwritten manuscript novel. 19 signatures of 24 leaves, each totaling 904 numbered pages. The first signature lacks the first leaf (probably a cover leaf or title page) and the conjugate leaf (pages 39/40). Modest toning and foxing, mostly on the first and last leaf, a few hand corrections, but overall a clean and probably final draft manuscript copy, very good or better.A very long novel described in the first sentence as: "The history of a young lady during her three years course through the High School of Lynn; her first entrance and introduction to the Teachers; her opinion of the school and bright prospects for future happiness therein; her bright hopes clouded and obscured; her struggles for the right; despondency and recklessness, and the final, glorious end which awaited her after all her troubles." An extremely lengthy and melodramatic unpublished manuscript. Each of the 45 chapters (except the last) has a brief or several sentences long introduction summarizing what is in the chapter, which, in addition to the trials and tribulations of the heroine Minnie Marsh, includes such intriguing chapters such as Chapter 17: "George Marsh's visit to the Lawrence Cotton Factory. Death of George!"; Chapter 19: "Mr. Browning 'washes his hands of the whole affair.' Minnie is locked in the Room of Disgrace"; and Chapter 22: "The three telegrams. George saved by Galvanism. Minnie's interview with Mr. Graham. His opinion of her."2. A Guide to Moral Elevation; or, Fifty Resolutions Formed on New Year's Day by Lizzie E. Edgerly to be Devotely Kept during the Year 1876: Lynn, December 31 - 1875 To L.E.E. from A.W.E. This second manuscript is a small notebook (5" x 3.5") with a thin crepe purple cover with canvas spine. Some creases on the front cover, else near fine. Apparently a New Year's gift prepared by Edgerly for his sister. Two page title and introduction followed by 50 handwritten pages, each with a resolution. Most of the advice is whimsical: "No. 6: I will never speak an angry word if there is nobody present to hear me"; "No. 29: I will never stutter while calling the cat"; "No. 40: I will tell the truth on Sundays"; and "No. 44: I will never shed tears when I cry."Edgerly was a lawyer from Lynn, Massachusetts who founded a health club and soon after began to author the first of his several dozen self-help books (mostly under a pseudonym, Edmund Shaftsbury). He was the founder of the Ralstonism Movement, a late 19th and early 20th Century movement that stressed a healthy diet, questionable science, the use of personal magnetism to control others, sexual magnetism and related sexual eccentricity (each man should engage in a probationary marriage with someone the age of his grandmother), white supremacy rants, and various other quaint and/or questionable practices. One of his self-help books endorsed the consumption of whole grain cereals. William Danforth of Purina Mills, who manufactured a similar cereal, sought and received the endorsement of Edgerly for his cereals and renamed the company Ralston-Purina.Two almost unpublished manuscripts by the founder of the Ralstonism Movement. It is certainly likely that Edgerly also wrote the novel for his sister. The novel would benefit from further analysis or study. N° de réf. du vendeur 415740

Description de l'article : Anson D. F. Randolph, 1862., New York:, 1862. Folio. Tinted lithographic half-title with 12 vignettes by Charles Parsons, printed by Endicott & Co. (dated 1862), title-page, 20 chromolithographic plates by Charles Parsons after van Lennep, printed by Endicott & Co. of New York; some foxing and occasional waterstain (protruding into some plates and title). Modern brown morocco-backed and preserving original brown pebbled gilt-stamped (depicting a desert oasis with 2 palm trees, a woman riding a camel, being led by a bearded man), cloth boards, gilt spine bands. RARE. First and only edition of this remarkable album containing 20 chromolithographic plates, one of the most ambitious color-plate books of the American Civil War period (1861-64). The production of this large format album with printed text and plates, was based on the writings and drawings of Henry J. van Lennep, a Missionary in Turkey who returned to the United States in 1861. The book contains an introduction wherein the author acknowledges the valuable contribution of Charles Parsons, of New York, and that of the publisher, Messrs. Endicott & Co., "who was patiently overcome the difficulties inherent, especially in this country [referring to the war], to a work of such magnitude and novelty" The author states, "The sketches are all portraits, and every picture has been drawn directly from nature." / "The one really big chromolithographic book of this decade . the art is simple, but [Charles] Parson's hand is obvious in the good lithography, and Endicott's printing is well done for its time" -- McGrath. / "Endicott achieved a rich variety of color which demonstrated the increased technical ability of American printers in the medium" -- Reese. / The large chromolithographic plates feature colorful scenes of men or women in costumes common to their tribe or race, as found in and around the Ottoman Empire and Asia Minor. The plates include six scenes of Armenian peoples, five scenes with Turkish persons, two scenes of Jewish people (one is a wedding) in the Ottoman Empire, one Russian (Circassian) to the north. Included are plates of (1) Turkish and Armenian Ladies (abroad); (2) A Turkish Effendi; (3) Armenian Lady (at home); (4) Turkish Scribe; (5) Turkish Lady of Rank (at home); (6) Turkish Cavass (police officer); (7) Turkish Lady (unveiled); (8) Armenian Piper; (9) Armenian Ladies (at home); (10) Armenian Marriage Procession; (11) Armenian Bride; (12) Albanian Guard; (13) Armenian Peasant Woman; (14) Bagdad Merchant (travelling); (15) Jewish Marriage; (16) Jewish Merchant; (17) Gypsy Fortune Telling; (18) Bandit Chief; (19) Circassian Warrior; (20) Druse Girl. / Henry J. Van Lennep (1815-1889), born in Smyrna (present-day Izmir, Turkey) Turkey, the son of European merchants. In 1830 he was sent to the United States for his education, which he undertook in Massachusetts. " He prepared for college at Mount Pleasant Institute, Amherst, Mass., and Hartford (Conn.) Grammar School. After graduating from Amherst College in 1837, he attended Andover Theological Seminary for one year, then studied with Rev. Joel Hawes in Hartford and was ordained a Congregational minister in 1839." He returned to Turkey in 1840 to serve as a Missionary. There is remained for twenty-nine years. During this time he wrote of his experiences, made numerous drawings and oil paintings. Returning to the United States in 1861, he turned his drawings of Middle Eastern life into this Oriental Album. "Van Lennep was proficient in numerous languages and was also a skillful artist, sketching (in pencil or pen and ink) scenes from his extensive travels. Many of his drawings appeared in published works, which include The Oriental Album: Twenty Illustrations, in Oil Colors, of the People and Scenery of Turkey, with an Explanatory and Descriptive Text (1862); Travels in Little-known Parts of Asia Minor: with Illustrations of Biblical Literature and Researches in Archaeology (1870); and Bible Lands: their Modern Customs and Manners Illustrative of Scripture (1875). He also executed several drawings for Professor Edward Hitchcock, including his Geology of Massachusetts (1841) and Illustrations of Surface Geology (1860)." / "Van Lennep was married three times: to Emma L. Bliss (1839-40), Mary E. Hawes (1843-44), and Emily Ann Bird (1850-?). He had six children. Van Lennep died in Great Barrington, Mass., in 1889." -- Amherst College Archives and Special Collections (where his drawings are located). PROVENANCE: The estate of Susan J. Lyman.

AN IMPORTANT ASSOCIATION COPY, AND A NEARLY PERFECT COPY IN ORIGINAL SHIPPING BOX. "Les Diners de Gala, the opulent cookbook that [Dali] conceived and illustrated, sets out a surrealist gastro-aesthetics that is at once visceral and ascetic, Dionysian and Catholic. [It] showcases Dali's ornamentation of menus from such legendary restaurants as Maxim's and La Tour d'Argent and features the recipes of their chefs. Dali stages himself within the sumptuous culinary mise-en-scene. Les Diners de Gala moves between 'sado-masochistic pleasure', 'acute sybaritism', Rabelaisian scatology, religious ecstasy, and anaesthetic asceticism." (Richard Gough, On Cooking). With 136 recipes in 12 categories: exotic dishes; eggs & sea food; first course; meats; snails & frogs; fish & shell fish; game & poultry; pork; vegetables; aphrodisiacs; desserts; hors-d' oeuvre. Provenance: An important association copy dedicated to Phyllis Lucas, first North American publisher of signed limited edition Dali lithographs. Phyllis and her husband Sydney enjoyed a close relationship with the surrealist artist for several decades. Also dedicated to the noted art collector Ben Fishman. Acquired directly from the heirs to the Fishman estate. Signed and dated (1974) in marker on verso of front free endpaper and with dedication text ("Hommage de Ben Fishman & Phyllis Lucas") and portrait sketch in red ink on flyleaf.

Suite du livre intitule nouvelles fontaines filtrantes: AMY (Joseph)

Description de l'article : 1752. Couverture rigide. Etat : Bon. 3 ouvrages en 1 fort volume Paris, Antoine Bourdet, et Jean-Baptiste Coignard et Antoine Bourdet, 1752-1754, in-12, 3 ouvrages en 1 fort volume in-12, frontispice rehaussé à l'aquarelle, LXXXII-332-[4] pages et 9 planches rehaussées en couleurs, dont 8 repliées ; VIII-71-46 pages et 7 planches, dont 6 repliées ; [2]-95 pages (manque les 28 feuillets liminaires), veau raciné de l'époque, dos à 5 nerfs orné et portant une pièce de titre en maroquin rouge, filet à froid d'encadrement sur les plats, tranches et gardes marbrées, Rare ensemble d'ouvrages de physique expérimentale et d'hydraulique appliquée à la santé et à l'hygiène publique. Les trois textes sont en édition originale ; les deux premiers comprennent une superbe illustration sur bois et sur suivre, en partie rehaussée à l'époque. La Suite du livre intitule nouvelles fontaines filtrantes est reliée en tête du volume, avec le frontispice emblématique gravé sur bois (la santé publique, sous les traits d'Hercule, animée par les rayons de la royauté française, combat l'insalubrité et les maladies personnifiées par l'hydre de Lerne). L'ensemble des illustrations de cette partie, le frontispice compris, a été colorié à l'époque. Le troisième livre est incomplet des pages I à XIII de la préface et des 8 feuillets liminaires suivants, qui doivent comprendre les avis de Réaumur, Falconet et de l'Académie des sciences, ainsi que la table. On ignore presque tout de la vie de Joseph Amy, avocat au parlement d'Aix-en-Provence. Seuls les livres qu'il publia entre 1747 et 1759, sur la purification de l'eau utilisée en milieu domestique et les eaux et fontaines de la ville de Paris nous renseignent sur sa personne, sa vie et les relations qu'il entretint avec ses contemporains. Les ouvrages de ce curieux inventeur, avant tout soucieux du bien être de la population, de ce qu'il nomme lui-même, la "Santé Publique" (voir la planche XVI de la "Suite"), s'apparentent à de doux pamphlets promouvant, et faisant la publicité, des fontaines filtrantes mises au point par ses soins et défendant activement l'utilisation du plomb bien affiné contre celle de l'étain et du cuivre. Fort de la reconnaissance et de l'appui qui lui accordèrent, en 1748, l'Académie des Sciences, Réaumur et Falconet (voir les pages LXVIII à LXXIX de l'avertissement de la "Suite" où il renvoie à ces importants éloges), Amy détaille longuement chacune des machines qu'il inventa, celles-ci profitant toujours d'illustrations gravées sur cuivre, et condamne explicitement par des illustrations allégoriques l'emploi du cuivre (planches 14, 15 et 16 de la "Suite"), ainsi que l'ignorance et les mauvaises habitudes (voir son étonnant et très schématique "Plan de Paris", à la page 13 de la seconde partie des "Nouvelles fontaines" de 1752, où il divise la population de Paris en fonction de son niveau de connaissance des nouvelles fontaines proposées à la vente). Ces 3 ouvrages valent bien sur par leurs innovations, mais aussi par leur rhétorique simple et efficace : à une idée à défendre correspond une illustration. Ainsi, au total on compte pas moins de 16 figures représentant des schémas de fontaine ou de machine hydraulique : fontaine publique pour les villes et garnisons, parallèle des nouvelles fontaines avec les anciennes, différents états des fontaines de cuivre à Paris, machine à élever les eaux, fontaine filtrante pour bateau, petite fontaine pour raffiner l'eau déjà filtrée dans le fond de la cale d'un bateau, fontaine de cave de carrosse, ou de chaise de poste, "filtroir" militaire, marin ou domestique, "filtroir" d'abondance, "filtroir" par descension et ascension dans le sable, fontaine de fer blanc étamé ou plombé, nouvelle espèce de pierre poreuse, fontaine de poche, fontaine de cuisine, et enfin 3 types de fontaines de raffinage. Le troisième livre forme un "Extrait", ou plus exactement, l'abrégé d'un livre parut pour la première fois en 1750, les. N° de réf. du vendeur 56665

Description de l'article : Amsterdam (Paris), 1747. Hardcover (Full Leather). Etat : Very Good Condition. Second Edition. Contemporary acid calf, respined. Light wear at the corners, scattered light foxing and toning internally, endpapers browned - a clean, bright copy overall. With an armorial bookplate on the front pastedown and the bookplate of food bibliographer Eleanor Lowenstein on the front free endpaper. The second edition, the first with the Lettre du Patissier Anglois. viii, 244. Oberle 112, Simon 421, Cagle 1082, Vicaire 234The most singular of all French cookbooks, the organization is haphazard, but the dishes and names so charming and so likably indicative of the debauched phase of French royal cookery (and society) that all is forgiven. Frogs in green sauce, green monkey sauce, eggs without malice, veal cooked to resemble donkey droppings, chicken in the shape of bats, ducks roasted and pressed for a bit of juice to dress a chicken and the carcasses discarded. Simultaneously mocking and exemplifying the unfettered fabulousness of 18th century royal cuisine, Le Cuisinier Gascon marks the end of the revolution in food that began with La Varenne, and the start of a revolution of another sort. Size: 8vo (octavo). Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo. Category: Cooking, Wine & Dining; Inventory No: CAT000093. N° de réf. du vendeur CAT000093

Etat : Very Good. 1st Edition. 6 vols., pp. [1], 259; [1], 248; [1], 350; [1], 328; [1], XVI [prefatory missive 'Al cortese lettore'], 290; [1], 325, contemporary full vellum binding with gilt titling to spines with the addition of inscription 'Cucina' in contemporary hand, red-and-grey decorative sprinkled edges, head- and heel-bands. Some stains/foxing to pages, some marks to binding; but generally a very good, firm copy with bright pages. A very rare set in exceptional condition. Francesco Leonardi was an internationally renowned chef and food writer from Rome who lived and worked in a number of European countries, concluding his career as chef to Catherine II of Russia (Catherine the Great). He wrote L'Apicio moderno ('Modern Apicus') after returning to Rome, drawing on his experiences abroad. With its publication Leonardi challenged the supremacy of the French in the world of fine cuisine, arguing that every European city is capable of having a culinary culture comparable to that for which Paris was regarded as supreme. The book is addressed to the noble courts and private houses of Italy, adapting to the Italian language the professional terminologies of cooking, key Parisian dishes and new dishes he had invented and wished to introduce to the repertoire of international court and bourgeois cuisine. It was Leonardi's aim to demonstrate the flexibility of French cooking, its adaptability to the needs and financial strictures of families of modest wealth, and to a broad variety of locales, their markets and their different produce.

Description de l'article : Venundantur Iodoco Badio Ascensio [Josse Bade], 1529. Couverture rigide. - Venundantur Iodoco Badio Ascensio [Josse Bade], S.l. [Paris] 1529 et 1524 pour les deux textes suivants, in-folio (20,5x31,5cm), A6 A8 a-t8 v6 x8 et Aa6 4 A-O8 et Aa10, relié. - Première édition parisienne du Libri de re rustica illustrée d'un titre-frontispice représentant une scène d'imprimerie, ainsi que diverses scènes mythologiques en encadrement. Une annotation manuscrite du temps sur la page de titre. Belles lettrines. Cette édition contient le glossaire de Giorgio Merula, les commentaires de Filippo Beroalda l'Ancien sur les treize livres de Columelle, ainsi que la table d'Alde Manuce sur la durée du jour et la taille des ombres portées, suivant les enseignements de Palladius. Troisième édition chez Josse Bade pour Macrobii Aurelii Theodosii Viri consularis, après celles de 1515 et 1519. Elle est suivie sous pagination particulière d'un opuscule de Censorin intitulé De die natali. Page de titre-frontispice répétée. Lettrines identiques au texte précédent ; un large bandeau représentant des astronomes, ainsi que plusieurs autres vignettes et schémas astronomiques in-texte. Une très importante carte de Macrobe représentant les zones climatiques. Reliure en plein vélin rigide crème d'époque. Dos à six nerfs. Titre à la plume contemporain de l'ouvrage dans le premier caisson et étiquette plus tardive dans le second. Restes de fermoirs. Toutes tranches mouchetées rouges. Quelques soulignements et annotations marginales de l'époque. Quelques pâles mouillures et déchirures marginales sans manque. Une déchirure en coin sans perte de texte au feuillet miiii du second texte. Exemplaire particulièrement frais. Le Libri de re rustica est une réunion de textes didactiques en prose sur l'agriculture et la vie à la campagne, laissés par les quatre grands agronomes antiques Caton l'Ancien, Varron, Columelle et Palladius ; y sont abordés la culture des champs et des jardins, l'élevage des abeilles, la pêche, l'économie rurale (recettes de cuisine, de médecine), ainsi que les travaux de plantation. Ces textes sont traditionnellement imprimés dans des éditions collectives et adoptent un ton scientifique et non littéraire comme avait pu le faire Virgile dans ses Géorgiques. Ainsi, dès 1472 et jusque vers le milieu du XVIIIème siècle, ces textes seront régulièrement et collectivement édités sous la coupe des plus grands imprimeurs européens, d'abord en Italie, le berceau de l'humanisme, puis en France et en Allemagne. Dans la deuxième moitié du siècle, on fit plutôt des éditions séparées, il faudra ensuite attendre le regain d'intérêt de la seconde moitié du XVIIIème pour les réalités agricoles et voir ces uvres éditées à nouveau. La seconde partie est constituée du célèbre Commentaire du Songe de Scipion par Macrobe, ainsi que des sept livres de ses Saturnales, banquet philosophique se déroulant à la période éponyme et durant lequel douze devisants dissertent sur l'histoire et la philosophie romaine, puis proposent une explication des textes de Virgile. Ces Saturnales sont aussi l'occasion d'un débat sur les aliments et leurs propriétés. De die natali (« Du jour de naissance ») traite de la naissance et de la vie de l'homme, des jours, les mois, des années, des rites religieux, il s'agit d'une importante mine d'information concernant les usages de l'Antiquité : calcul du terme de la naissance, zodiaque, la théorie de Pythagore sur la musique et les planètes, et l'influence sur la durée de gestation. Il y est question de la vie divisée en périodes ou années climatériques, et de sa durée limitée à quatre-vingts ou à cent ans au plus. Censorinus fournit aussi de nombreux repères chronologiques historiques. Très bel ensemble de textes tout à fait symbolique du regain d'intérêt des auteurs de la Renaissance pour les textes antiques classiques ou mineurs, et qui confirme la vision d'une Rome idéale et harmonieuse. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] First Parisian edition of the Libri de re rustica with a frontispiece-title showing a scene in a printing house, bordered with various mythological scenes. Contemporary manuscript note to title. Handsome initials. This edition has the glossary by Giorgio Merula, the commentary by Filippo Beroaldo the Elder on the thirteen books of Columella, as well as the table by Aldus Manutius showing the length of the day and the size of shadows cast, based on Palladius. The third edition by Josse Bade for Macrobii Aurelii Theodosii Viri consularis, after those of 1515 and 1519. It is followed, with an odd pagination, by a short work by Censorinus, De die natali. Frontispiece-title repeated. Same initials as before, a large headpiece representing astronomers as well as several other vignettes and astronomical figures to text. With a very important map by Macrobius showing the climate zones . Contemporary stiff vellum . Spine in seven compartments. Spine titled in ink in contemporary hand in first compartment and later label in second. Traces of clasps. All edges speckled red. A few contemporary underlinings and marginal annotations. A few faint dampstains and marginal tears without lack. Tear to corner without loss of text to leaf miiii of second work. A very fresh copy. The Libri de re rustica is a collection of didactic prose texts on agriculture and rural life by the four great Classical agronomists: Cato the Elder, Varro, Columella and Palladius. The works treat the cultivation of fields and gardens, beekeeping, fishing, rural housekeeping (recipes for food and medicines), as well as sowing. These texts have traditionally been published collectively and are more scientific than literary in tone, unlike Virgil and his Georgics. These texts were regularly collectively published by the most distinguished European printing houses from 1472 until the middle of the 18th century, first in Italy - the cradle of Humanism - and later in France and Germany. In the second half of the century, separate editions came into fashion, and it was not until the second half of the. N° de réf. du vendeur 46953

Description de l'article : Francesco Corbelletti, Rome, 1627. Softcover. Etat : Good. ITALIAN CUISINE FOR THE HIGH DIGNITARIES OF THE 17C. FIRST EDITION. 4to., pp. (8), 300. Roman letter, a little Italic; dedicatee s arms engraved on title, decorated initials, typographical head- and tail-pieces; lightly foxed, some leaves aged browned, tiny marginal wormholes at foot of gathering P and Q, old repairs to blank lower outer corner of title. A good copy in contemporary limp vellum, original endpapers; a little stained and rubbed, two small cracks to spine; reader s or bookseller s annotation by nearly contemporary Italian hand È da vedere ( To be read/collated ). Rare first edition of a masterpiece of Italian cuisine in early modern times. Born in Camerino, Vittorio Lancellotti was a respected butler in the service of Cardinal Ippolito Aldobrandini, nephew of Pope Clement VIII and dedicatee of this book, and other high-ranking prelates of the Roman Curia, including Ippolito s uncle Pietro Aldobrandini and Cardinal Scipione Borghese. In the Scalco prattico, Lancellotti described the numerous lavish banquets he supervised at either family or state occasions, with detailed recipes and reports of the service. These celebratory meals usually consist of no less than six round of multiple courses, with cold and hot fresh dishes (including Pasticci all Inglese ) and stored sweets and savouries. The book is divided monthly, dispensing advice for seasonal culinary preparations. Particularly rich and impressive was the party organised in 1622 for the wedding of Prince Aldobrandini and Ippolita Ludovisi, niece of the reigning pope Gregory XIV. After a never-ending first round of dishes (out of twelve), the couple was presented with a magnificent statue of marzipan representing Atlas shouldering the Earth with their coat of arms nestled in it.

Un livre lui a été dédié, il s'agit du Cuisinier gascon. Cet anonymat ne trompait personne, du moins à la cour, car tout le monde savait qu'il était de la main de Louis-Auguste de Bourbon lui-même. Ce 'Cuisinier gascon' est considéré comme l'un des livres de cuisine les plus célèbres du XVIIIe siècle." (Bertrand Galimard Flavigny). Très bel exemplaire.
