Rare Double Elephant Description de l'Egypte Engr.

Lot 330: Rare Double Elephant Description de l'Egypte Engr.

by Ahlers & Ogletree Inc.

March 21, 2015, 11:00 AM EST

Atlanta, GA, USA

Estimated Price: $15,000 - $30,000

Description: French, 19th century. Very rare hand colored double elephant copperplate engraving from Napoleon Bonaparte's first edition of "Description de l'Égypte". Work of Plate 51 "Thebes, Karnak" with image depicting a "Elevation Perspective de la Porte de Sud (Perspective Elevation of the Southern Door)" with small figures walking in procession, many holding fans dwarfed by the significant and striking Egyptian architecture found in the Karnak South Temple Doorway flanked by rows of ram headed sphnixes. Framed approximately 49" x 40.75". Sight size approximately 37.5" x 29.25".Note: The "Description de l'Egypte" included around 837 engravings which served as the first comprehensive description of ancient and modern Egypt. The large project 23 volume tome included contributions by 167 scholarly members of the Institut de l'E´gypte established by Napoleon to accompany his expedition to Egypt in 1798-1801. After the expedition and seeing the success of Denon's 'Voyage dans la Basse et la Haute Égypte pendant les campagnes du general Bonaparte' (1802), Napoleon ordered the Imperial Press to produce a publication that would serve as a visual record of the Egyptian expedition's findings. At first, the large undertaking was published in smaller installments over a twenty year period (1809-1829). Around 400 skilled copper engravers worked on the project during that twenty year span. While the thorough tome was produced in smaller formats and elephant folios, the double elephant folios remain the most rare and desirable. Many of these remain in the hands of noted rare book collections such as The National Library of Scotland and The Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Yale University in New Haven, CT.

SAMMLUNG DE AMODIO: KLEINE BRONZEBÜSTE DES LOUIS XVIII, Restauration, Paris, 19. Jh.Brünierte und vergoldete Bronze sowie 'Griotte Rouge'-Marmor. Louis XVIII in prächtiger Galauniform auf Zylindersockel mit Bourbonenwappen und Quaderplatte. Dazu portalförmiges Holzgehäuse mit vergoldeten Bronzeapplikationen. Bestossungen im Marmor. Gehäuse mit Fehlstellen. Büste: H 28 cm. Gehäuse: 25,5x17x49 cm.Provenienz: Aus der Sammlung des Marquis und der Marquise de Amodio y Moya, Hôtel particulier, 93 rue de l'Université, Paris (ehemals de La Rochefoucauld).Louis XVIII war von 1814 bis 1824 König von Frankreich und Navarra. Während der Regentschaft seines Grossvaters Louis XV sowie seines Bruders Louis XVI hatte er nur sehr begrenzten politischen Einfluss. Im Laufe der Französischen Revolution floh er ins Exil und ernannte sich nach der Hinrichtung Louis XVI zum Familienoberhaupt und nach dem Tod Louis XVII zum König. Es kam jedoch erst zur Restauration der Monarchie, nachdem Napoleon Bonaparte 1814 gestürzt worden war. Sie war nun allerdings nicht mehr absolut, sondern konstitutionell. 1815 kam Napoleon nochmals an die Macht - es folgte die 'Herrschaft der hundert Tage', und Louis XVIII musste erneut fliehen. Erst nach der endgültigen Niederlage Napoleons kehrte er auf den Thron zurück. Louis XVIII verstarb im September 1824 in Paris, worauf sein Bruder, der Graf von Artois, als Charles X die Nachfolge antrat.

In: Periods of European Literature, Edinburgh, London 1907 - Zum Wappensupralibro vgl. Lamort 40. - Napoleons I. persönliches Exemplar des „Ossian" von James Macpherson, das er auf seinen Reisen und Kriegszügen mit sich geführt hatte. Er war der festen Überzeugung, dass diese Dichtung die Kraft hätte, Menschen zu grossen Leistungen anzutreiben. So hatte er seinem Generalstab vor dem Beginn der grossen Schlachten aus Teilen des „Ossian" vorgelesen. Selbst seine Heeres- und Kriegsberichte wurden im Stile Ossians verfasst. Napoleon I. befand sich im Zenit seiner Macht, als er am 3. Dezember 1809 die Fürsten zahlreicher europäischer Staaten zu einer grossen Hofjagd in das Schloss Grosbois (Marne) eingeladen hatte. An diesem Tag trat er zum letzen Mal zusammen mit der Kaiserin Josephine auf. Wenige Tage später erfolgte die Scheidung. In den Wirren und Turbulenzen dieser Tage kam ihm das hier vorliegende Exemplar des „Ossian" abhanden. Es trägt auf dem Vortitelblatt den handschriftlichen Eintrag alter Hand: „Ce livre, lecture favorite de l'Empereur Napoléon Ier, était de tous ses voyages, il a été oublié au château de Gros-bois le 3 décembre 1809 par sa majesté venant chasser. Étaient présents à cette chasse : L'Empereur, l'Impératrice, le Roi de Wurtemberg, le Roi de Naples, le vieux Roi d'Italie, le Maréchal Moncey ... [etc.]." Nach Vaughan war „Ossian" Napoleons ständiger Begleiter ... „von Ägypten bis St. Helena". Es ist überliefert, dass er ab 1810 eine andere Ossian-Ausgabe benutzt hatte. - Stellenweise leicht stockfleckig, die erste und letzte Lage etwas stärker. Titelblatt tintenfleckig. Teil I, S. 11 mit Tropfen von Kerzenwachs (minimaler Textverlust). Teil II, S. 220-221 mit Tintenflecken. - Schönes, wohlerhaltenes Exemplar aus dem kaiserlichen Besitz.

Description: MARJORIE (JORI) ELIZABETH THURSTON SMITHAJACCIO, CORSICAoil on boardsigned (twice); signed and titled on the reverse 4.5 ins x 6.25 ins; 11.4 cms x 15.9 cms Provenance:Private Collection, MontrealNote:Jori Smith studied under Randolph Hewton at the Art Association of Montreal. In 1930, she married fellow artist Jean Palardy, whom she painted with extensively in the Charlevoix region. The only woman in the Canadian artists collective called the Eastern Group of Painters (which included John Lyman, Goodridge Roberts and Eric Goldberg among others), Smith was lauded for her ability to capture the personalities and moods of the people and places that she painted. Smith embarked on many working trips to Europe beginning in 1934. This work depicts the French commune, Ajaccio, the largest settlement on the island of Corsica and the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte. Smith's quick brushstrokes and limited palette denote the heat of the day - the lush, green palms offering places of cool refuge. Estimate: $700-900

HOBBEMA, MEINDERT (ZUGESCHRIEBEN)(1638 Amsterdam 1709)Landhaus mit Passanten in einer bewaldeten Landschaft.Öl auf Holz. Unten links signiert: m.hobbema.30 x 37 cm.Gutachten: Dr. Eduard Plietzsch, 20.5.1959.Provenienz:- Sammlung Dominique-Vivant Baron Denon, Paris, 1826.- Kunsthandel Paul Bottenweiser, Berlin, 1925.- Europäische Privatsammlung.Dieses Gemälde befand sich einst in der Sammlung des bedeutenden französischen Kunstsammlers und Archäologen Dominique-Vivant Denon (1747-1825). Unter König Louis XV. richtete Denon als Konservator das Gemmenkabinett der Madame Pompadour ein. Während der Französischen Revolution gelang es ihm durch seine Freundschaft zu Jacques-Louis David, den Auftrag für den Entwurf der Uniformen republikanischer Amtsträger zu bearbeiten. Seine Bekanntschaft mit Josephine de Beauharnais brachte ihn in Kontakt mit General Napoleon Bonaparte, der ihn 1798 mit der wissenschaftlichen Truppe des napoleonischen Expeditionskorps nach Ägypten schickte. Seine dortigen Recherchen wurden 1802 unter dem Titel 'Voyage dans la Basse et la Haute Egypte' publiziert. Zwei Jahre später wurde er zum Generaldirektor des Musée Central des Arts, dem heutigen Louvre, ernannt und baute die Sammlung bis zu seinem Rücktritt 1815 kontinuierlich auf. Die umfassende Sammlung des Baron Denon, welche unter anderem Skulpturen, Gemälde, Antiken, Medaillen und Grafiken beinhaltete, wurde 1826 und 1827 in Paris versteigert.Meindert Hobbema ist für seine von Jacob van Ruisdael beinflussten bewaldeten Landschaften bekannt. Seine Gemälde werden häufig von einer helleren Farbgebung als bei Ruisdael geprägt, wobei gezielter Lichteinfall dramaturgisch eingesetzt wird, wie auch bei dieser Landschaft zu erkennen ist. Der Dünenweg, auf dem ein Reiter und eine weibliche Person zu erkennen sind, ist besonders leuchtend hervorgehoben. Die Komposition sowie die stilistische Bearbeitung dieser Landschaft ist vergleichbar mit Hobbemas frühen Arbeiten um 1655-59, so beispielsweise das Gemälde im Städel Museum in Frankfurt (RKD Nr. 249414) oder das bei Georges Broulhiet erwähnte Werk (Meindert Hobbema, Paris 1938, S. 398, Nr. 172).

IMPORTANT NOTES REGARDING THE CATALOGUING OF CLOCKS: Movements, dials and cases: movements and dials are described as relating to the cases in which they are housed in one of the following three ways: the case.... we are of the opinion that the movement and dial started life in the current case. in a case... we are of the opinion that the movement and dial are in a case of correct period and type (and may well be original to the movement and dial), however there is evidence to suggest that they may not have started out life together. now in a case... we are of the opinion that the movement and dial are no longer in the original case as it is not of correct period and/or type. Pendulums, weights, winding and case keys: unless specifically indicated otherwise in the catalogue description it can be assumed that all clocks with cases are sold with the requisite pendulum and correct number of weights (where appropriate), however we cannot guarantee that they are original to the clock. This excludes lantern clocks or loose movements which are more often than not offered without pendulums or weights. We do not indicate in the catalogue description whether winding or case keys are present with any specific clock. As many clocks are consigned without keys please check with the department to establish whether they are present or not prior to bidding. Condition: due to the mechanical nature of clocks and the fact that most are of great age we cannot offer any guarantee as to whether they are in working order or free from major faults or restoration. Although we endeavour to catalogue items in a fair and informed manner, omission of any comments or observations regarding the condition or originality of a clock in the description does not necessarily indicate that it is free from significant faults, restoration or is in working condition. We would strongly advise any prospective purchaser to view the item in person or request a condition report and/or further images prior to bidding. Measurements: dial measurements are given in inches, other dimensions such as height are given in centimetres and inches. The measurement given for the height of a longcase clock excludes any removable finials in order to provide an approximate minimum ceiling height in which the clock can be accommodated.
