ALBUM with handpainted coats of arms on vellum, cut out and mounted on stiff paper.
1865 With 4 pen-and-ink drawings and 52 coats of arms, some smaller drawings interspersed. 1 leaf, 23 leaves with contents, 13 blank leaves. 12mo. Contemp. calf, gilt fillets and gilt inner dentelles, all edges gilt (rebacked with old spine laid down). N. pl., 1865. Charming gift album of delicately painted coats of arms, arranged two to seven on a page. On first flyleaf, there is the handwritten dedication "Rosa Moilliet from her loving sister E. Sophie Moilliet September 11th, 1865", with the drawing of a dog and two fowls. On the first leaf, another drawing shows a fantasy coat of arms made for the dog, flanked by two gentlemen, with a gilt banderole "Cave Canem" and the picture of the same dog above; underneath the text "Granted for deeds of valour done on the first of September 1865", in a different hand. Most of the colorful coats of arms are identified above in brown ink, i.e. Barclay, Trussell, Beauchamp, the See of Canterbury, the See of Worcester, Douglas, etc. The painter of these and of the drawings in between them was more than an amateur, they are exquisite, in brilliant colors and gold. They are possibly earlier than the date of the dedication suggests. MANUSCRIPTS: GENERAL ; GENEALOGY - HERALDRY ;

BREVIARIUM ROMANUM. With the corrections by Georgius de Spathariis. Printed on vellum in red and black.
(before 6 May) 1478 Gothic letter. 48 lines. 2 cols. 269 (of 404) unn. leaves. One 9-line historiated initial and 23 smaller illuminated initials in burnished gold and colors, most of them with borders. Each page with many initials supplied in red and blue and with penwork decoration in red and dull purple; guide letters. Folio (319 x 231 mm). Old leather-backed marbled boards. In half morocco drop-box. From the libraries of Sir Thomas Phillipps and Harrison D. Horblit, and Kraus cat. 156, no. IV. Printed on vellum in red and black. Venice, Nicolaus Jenson, (before 6 May) 1478. Editio princeps of the Breviarium Romanum, a book containing the divine office designed for use by the clergy, preceded only by a few editions for specific monastic orders. The present breviary is in a much larger size than the average, indicating that it was designed to rest on a lectern. It is cited as being one of Jenson's typographic masterpieces, and one of the few books in which he used the Gothic rotunda typeface. The printing on vellum, the extensive use of red and black ink, the illuminated initials with their burnished gold, and generously employed penwork decorations, all work together to give this production the appearance of a neat manuscript. Although incomplete (lacking 6 leaves of index and calendar at the beginning, leaves a2, d1, e1, 3, a5, and the 124 leaves of the Proprium de Sanctis of which 51 of these missing leaves are preserved at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, pressmark 87.F.13) it is a noble example of Jenson's exquisite printing.- A few leaves mutilated, some with loss of text, some repaired with vellum strips. - GW 5101; H 3896*; BMC V, 179; Goff B-1112; Pell 2922; IGI 2114; BSB-Ink B-889; BAVT (Vatican) B-472; Van Praet I, no. 69; Bohatta, Liturg.

The miniatures are painted in green, red, pink, blue, orange and yellow; the artist used a very fine brush for faces and hair, and employed pretty stippling techniques for clouds, clothing, sky, etc. Subjects: 1) Jesus being nailed to the cross by a carpenter, on a platform with Jacob's ladder, flanked by rose plants, quotations from the gospel of St. Mark and Genesis above and below in red ink; 2) St. Goar in heaven, on clouds with two cherubim, below him, framed by scrolls and leafy ornaments, two scenes from his life, as a hermit on the Rhine, and being cleared of the charge of sorcery by King Sigebert I of Austrasia; 3) Mary Magdalene, weeping in a verdant wilderness, holding the skull, supported by angels, cherubim watching above; 4) an angel in the heavens carrying a shield bearing the emblems of the Passion, the lamb (Christ) seated beneath attendant cherubim in clouds.- Binding: This charming manuscript is housed in its original slipcase and contemporary decorative red goatskin gilt. Sides gold tooled with border of festoons, windmill or petal tools at corner, central wreath oval with ribbon tie at tops and two hanging festoons at bottom, spine with gilt sun or flower tools in paneled compartments, green calf title label lettered "Katholisches Gebethbuch", gilt edges, marbled endpapers, pair of paper flyleaves.

ESSAI sur les qualités et les connoissances nécessaire à un général d'armée ou dissertation préliminaire aux campagnes de Jules César dans les Gaules.

Viennese burgundy morocco, with rich rococo border around sides, composed of 4 flower baskets, various small flower stamps, leafy sprigs, surrouded by a single fillet and a dotted line, spine with label gilt, edges gilt. Milan, Joseph Marelli, 1758. A rare and anonymous tract on the qualities of a general, splendidly bound in contemporary Viennese burgundy morocco.

He states that more could have been said on the topic, but that he was going to include further material in his future works on all great men of antiquity, if his first work would meet the approval of the great Prince (?) to whom it is dedicated. - Small library ticket on front pastedown. - Not in Barbier; for a similar binding see Mazal 231-232.

FRANCE. ASSEMBLEE NATIONALE CONSTITUANTE (1789-1791). Extrait des procès-verbaux de l'Assemblée Nationale, des 9, 11, 12, 14, 17, 21, 24, 27, 30 Septembre et 1 Octobre 1789: Articles de Constitution.
1789) With woodcut floral head-piece. 6 (1) pp. 8vo (c. 215 x 140 mm). Loose as issued. N. pl., n. d. (Versailles, Baudouin, 1789). FIRST EDITION of the earliest French Constitution. This document, being the first French constitution, is of major historic significance. It reflects the epochal changes from pre-revolutionary absolute power to new social and political structures with vested individual rights for every citizen. In one week of debate, mainly held by Mirabeau and Sieyès, the deputees succeeded in formulating general articles valid for all social ranks: Liberty as a birthright, equality before the law, the right to own property, to be considered innocent until proven guilty, free expression of opinion and faith, the right to education, etc. The constitution followed the lines preferred among reformists at that time: the creation of a French constitutional monarchy. The main controversy was the level of power to be granted to the king of France in such a system. Gilbert du Montier proposed a combination of the American and British systems, introducing a bicameral parliament, with the king having the suspensive veto power in the legislature, modeled to the authority then recently vested in the President of the United States. This proposal however failed. After very long negotiations, the constitution was reluctantly accepted by King Louis XVI in September 1791. Unicameralism was adopted as per the proposal of Emmanuel Joseph Sieyès, in order to disable the possibilites of the nobility's overpowering in the assembly. - Cf.
