Dona Maria,
Dona Maria, Reine de Portugal
A. Maurin 1832 [in image]. Lith. de Lemercier rue du Four S.G. No.35
Paris chez Chaillou Editeur rue St Honoré No. 140.
Lithograph, image 175 x 130mm (7 x 5") with very large margins. Uncut sheet; publisher's blindstamp.
Dona Maria II (1819-53), queen regent of Portugal and the Algarves from 1826-28, and from 1834-53, here portrayed at the age of around thirteen. Maria had been nominated by the elderly King Joao VI to serve as regent (as his favoured son Pedro was emperor of Brazil), but in 1828 the Joao's exiled son Miguel deposed Maria, proclaiming himself king. Thereafter Maria travelled to various European courts in search of support. Pedro later joined forces with Maria, warring with Miguel and forcing him to abdicate, restoring Maria to the throne. From a series of portraits by lithographer Antoine Maurin dit l'aîné (1793 - 1860).
For satirical representations of Maria visiting the British court, see refs. 30507, 30545 and 30249.

Réduction de la carte topographique des environs de St Hubert et de Rambouillet
Réduction de la carte topographique des environs de St Hubert et de Rambouillet [Levée par ordre du roi, par les ingénieurs géographes des camps et marches des armées de sa majesté sous la direction du Sr Berthier, en 1764] pour servir aux chasse de sa Majesté [ink mss.].
Gravé par Guill. De-la-Haye.
[Paris, c.1764.]
Scarce engraved map with original hand colour, two sheets conjoined, dissected and laid on linen, total 560 x 825mm (22 x 32½"). Bookplate ''Ex Libris M.A. Principis Burghesii'' & ink mss title label ''Carte des Chasses de L'Empereur à Rambouilles'' pasted on linen. Original title half scratched out, label with old ink mss. pasted over. Ink stamp of the 'Depot general de la Guerre' in sky of vignette.
Map of the environs of Château de Rambouillet, one of Napoleon's official residences, orientated with north to the bottom right, with a vignette view of Louis XV's hunting lodge, the Château de Saint-Hubert. Scarce with French Royalty connections. Drawn by army engineers under the direction of Jean-Baptiste Berthier and engraved by Guillaume-Nicolas Delahaye, the map was originally published in 1764. This example seems to have been customised c.1810 for Camillo Filippo Ludovico Borghese, husband of Napoleon Bonaparte's sister Pauline, a 'Prince of the French Empire'. Half of the original title has been scratched out and replaced with hand written note 'for the use of his Majesty's hunt'. When Napoleon became emperor in 1804 Rambouillet was one of the residences put at his disposal, using the extensive lands for hunting, for which this map was adapted. (Saint-Hubert was unfinished on the death of Louis XV and had been abandoned) The last time Napoleon stayed at Rambouillet was a week after his second abdication in June 1815, leaving to go into exile on St Helena. At that time Borghese left Pauline and went to Florence.
