        THE CONSTITUTION, PROPOSED FOR THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, BY THE FÅ’DERAL CONVENTION, HELD AT PHILADELPHIA, IN THE YEAR ONE THOUSAND SEVEN HUNDRED AND EIGHTY-SEVEN. TO WHICH IS ANNEXED, THE RATIFICATION THEREOF BY THE DELEGATES OF PENNSYLVANIA IN THE STATE CONVENTION

      Philadelphia, 1787. Gathered signatures, stitched as issued. Titlepage and following leaf with paper loss upper outer margin, not affecting text, expertly replaced with matching paper. Old light foxing. Very good. In a half morocco box. An early and important Philadelphia printing of the Constitution, issued just after the Pennsylvania Convention ratified the document on December 12, 1787. This printing was produced some three months after the Constitution was first approved by the Constitutional Convention on September 17, 1787. Pennsylvania was a key state in the ratification process - it was the first large state to ratify the Constitution and the second overall, following only Delaware, which ratified it on December 7. Pennsylvania's ratification marked an important step in the process to adoption of the Constitution as the supreme law of the land; this printing therefore marks an auspicious moment on the path to adoption. This is one of only a handful of pamphlet printings of the Constitution done in 1787, and also includes, on the final page, the names of the forty-six delegates who voted in favor of the Constitution at the Pennsylvania ratifying convention. This copy bears the early ownership signature of the "Richland Lybrary" on the titlepage. "Very rare in any condition...the importance of this pamphlet is apparent" - Rosenbach (who offered a copy in 1917 for $90). ESTC, NAIP, and OCLC together locate a total of thirteen copies. This is the first copy that we have ever owned, and we cannot find any copy appearing at auction in at least the past forty years. Any 1787 printing of the Constitution is scarce on the market.

        Tableau de Paris, ou Explication de différentes figures, gravées à l'eau-forte, pour servir aux différentes éditions du Tableau de Paris, par M. Mercier.

      Felice (Yverdon) 1787 - [DUNKER (Balthasar Anton) - MERCIER (Louis Sébastien)]. Tableau de Paris, ou Explication de différentes figures, gravées à l'eau-forte, pour servir aux différentes éditions du Tableau de Paris, par M. Mercier. Yverdon, 1787, petit in-4, cartonnage d’époque, 63 pp. dont le titre (explications des figures) - 1 frontispice et 95 figures h.-t. « à l'eau-forte, très spirituelles» dessinées et gravées pour la plupart par B.-A. Dunker (« Deux figures seulement sont signées en toutes lettres, onze portent l'initiale D. »), formant une « suite humoristique, dans laquelle Dunker n'a pas été tendre pour les Parisiens de son temps faite pour joindre au Tableau de Paris de Mercier (Neuchalel, 1781, 2 vol. ou Amsterdam, 1782-89, 12 vol.) » Rare exemplaire de format in-4, « ils sont fort rares ». Cohen- T II -701. Selon J.-P. Perret (Les imprimeries d'Yverdon au XVIIe et au XVIIIe siècle, Genève – Paris, Slatkine, 1981, p. 200), les 96 esquisses de Dunker pour le Tableau de Paris de Mercier parurent à l’adresse d’Yverdon en 1785 et 1787 puis à Berne en 1787. En fait, si l’imprimeur Felice (Yverdon) semble avoir imprimé le texte, on s’accorde à penser qu’il fit exécuter les gravures, à Berne, où vivait Dunker. Cohen signale une réédition de ces figures à Lyon, en 1791, sous le titre « Costumes des mœurs et de l'esprit français avant la grande révolution . » Balthazar- Anton Dunker (1746-1807), peintre et graveur, illustra un grand nombre de livres. La suite pour le Tableau de Paris et celle pour l’Heptaméron demeurent deux références pour l’illustration du livre au XVIIIème siècle. En outre, il publia, anonymement, trois recueils de poésie entre 1782 et 1785. Louis Sébastien Mercier ne souhaitait pas illustrer son texte et il n’apprécia guère les caricatures de Dunker, porteuses d’une critique acerbe de l’esprit prérévolutionnaire. Mais l’étude des mœurs des 900 000 habitants du Paris des années 1770-1780 est rendue encore plus vivante par ces portraits. LIRE à ce propos. Von Proschwitz Gunnar. Le Paris de L.-S. Mercier. In: Cahiers de l'Association internationale des études françaises, 1990, n°42. pp. 7-18. Très bon état dans l’ensemble, en cartonnage d’époque, l’ouvrage n’est pas en condition Trautz mais « tel qu’il parut ». Légers frottements au cartonnage, la marge extérieure de certaines planches est rognée raisonnablement. Des brunissures, très pales, puis très légères, dans la majeure partie de l’ouvrage dont la consultation est agréable ; deviennent plus gênantes dans les marges des dix derniers ff., atteintes minimes aux planches. Le tout bien visible sur les photos. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        A Series of Adventures in the Course of a Voyage Up the Red-Sea, on the Coasts of Arabia and Egypt, and a Route Through the Desarts of Thebais in the Year 1777 2 Volumes

      Dodsley, London 1787 - (title cont.) ."with a Supplement of a Voyage from Venice to Latichea: and of a route through the Desarts of Arabia, by Aleppo, Bagdad, and the Tygris, to Bursrah in the Years 1780 and 1781 in Letters to a Lady." This octavo edition in two volumes omitted the four sepia aquatints which appeared in the first quarto editon, and was illustrated by 4 engravings on copper. This set, however, had the earlier aquatings inserted in volume I as well as an extra aquatint in volume II. In addition the following maps are present as called for: Vol I "A View of the Town of Yambo on the Coast of Arabia"; "A Map of the Red Sea" (reinforced verso). Vol II: "The Nile Valleyu"; "Assyria"; "Mesopotamia"; "Babylonia" (torn and repaired); "The Gulf of Catarro on the Coast of Dalmatia". 5 maps in all. The volumes are cased in full contemporary calf with gilt borders and dentelles. There has been recent professional resoration and relaying of back strips with blind-tooled and gilt decoration, raised band and twin labels in red and black. NB the back cover of volume I, although of similar age, haas been taken from another volume and has a small gilt armorial motif appearing upside down: the gilt border and dentelles are of a different design but the whole restoration of the set has been very successful. The three armorial book plates have been relaid on new marbled endpapers. One of this book plates belonged to the author - Irwin of Brooke with a note that effect in a contemporary hand. A note in the same hand appears under the frontis engraved portrait of Irwin and reads "Bartolozzi fecit". This is an extra plate inserted afted publication. Given the additional insertions, inscriptions and bookplate, it is possible that this set was owned by the author, or someone closely connected. pp 387; 401.

        LE PILOTE DE L'ISLE DE SAINT-DOMINGUE ET DES DEBOUQUEMENS DE CETTE ISLE.... [with:] DETAIL SUR LA NAVIGATION AUX COTES DE SAINT-DOMINGUE ET DANS SES DEBOUQUEMENS

      Paris, 1787. Large folio atlas in antique-style half calf and patterned boards, spine gilt, leather label. Light scattered foxing.

Ozanne, "Ingénieur-constructeur de la Marine"). This introductory text is followed by detailed notes on the observations made of the positions of the various locations used as a base for the construction of the maps, and by notes on the available anchorages around the island. The text finishes with "Détails du mouvement" of marine chronometers number "28" and letter "A" that were used during the survey.

        Della filosofia della storia. Libri tre dell'Abate Aurelio De' Giorgi Bertola patrizio riminese.

      Stamperia di G. Bolzani, Pavia 1787 - In 8, pp. (8) + 412 + (4). Cart. coeva con rinforzo al d. Bordi intonsi. Edizione originale non comune di uno dei saggi piu' importante di questo scrittore riminese, attento viaggiatore, e studioso di estetica. Questo del Bertola fu il primo libro che in Italia porto' titolo di filosofia della storia; libro e titolo poco esplorati dalla tradizionale letteratura, eppure rappresentativi di un pensiero che merita di essere compreso in se' e per se', considerato l'ancoraggio ad alcune delle fondamentali esperienze culturali del tempo: il confronto critico con la storiografia illuministica e i modelli di 'storia filosofica' di Montesquieu e Voltaire, di Condillac e Gibbon; l'adesione al concetto di 'civilta' nell'indagine sulle 'cagioni', i 'mezzi' e gli 'effetti' del corso storico; il ritorno all'antico e l'analisi delle cause fisiche e morali della 'floridezza' e della 'decadenza' delle nazioni; la fortuna dell'esperienza massonica e la problematica conciliazione del principio 'ermetico' della ciclicita' della storia con la teoria illuministica del progresso. In sostanza l'autore riminese credeva, sbagliandosi, essere ormai finite le grandi rivoluzioni, e che i cambiamenti sarebbero avvenuti attraverso graduali trasformazioni. ITA

        DE LA FRANCE ET DES ETATS UNIS, OU DE L'IMPORTANCE DE LA REVOLUTION DE L'AMERIQUE POUR LE BONHEUR DE LA FRANCE, DES RAPPORTS DE CE ROYAUME & DES ETATS-UNIS

      London [i.e. Paris?]. 1787.. xxiv,xlviii,344pp. Later roan, spine gilt. Modern bookplate on front pastedown. Negligible foxing. Very good plus. A highly important work of political economy, published in Paris under a false imprint, and designed to stimulate investment in the United States by the French. Brissot de Warville was one of the most pro-American French thinkers of the period; he later wrote a well-known work on his American travels, and finally died in the Terror. This book seeks to enlighten the French and American public about the possibilities for mutually beneficial investments. Dedicated to the American Congress and the "friends of America in both worlds," it reviews a number of economic issues, such as balance of trade, the superior benefits of French manufactures for American markets, why French wines and oils were better than any that could be produced in the U.S., and a broad range of specific products. Various American products ranging from rice to furs are then discussed. In the end the authors include a prospectus for their proposed "Societe Gallo-Americaine." Claviere and Brissot de Warville worked together on a number of political tracts, and both believed that the example of America's fledgling democracy held the key to France's future. HOWES C464.

        DESCRIPCION DE DIFERENTES PIEZAS DE HISTORIA NATURAL. LAS MAS DEL RAMO MARITIMO, REPRESENTADAS EN SETENTA Y CINCO LAMINAS

      Havana, 1787. Small quarto. Contemporary mottled calf, spine gilt, leather label. Light wear to extremities, boards slightly scuffed. Minor foxing and soiling. Very good. A most important book of Caribbean natural history and an outstanding example of Cuban book printing. In addition to being the first scientific work published in Cuba, Parra's book stands as the first example of Cuban printing illustrated with copper plates, and Trelles goes so far as to call it the first book of any importance published in Cuba. As an example of Caribbean book printing, it is hard to imagine a book of greater interest. The work's status as an early Havana imprint alone makes it important, but the original scientific content combined with the exquisitely detailed engravings make it nothing short of extraordinary. The plates, drawn and engraved by the author's son, Manuel, illustrate all manner of crabs, fish, sponges, corals, etc., discovered by Parra along the Cuban shoreline. Each species is illustrated in conjunction with a physical description. Concerning the lobster, Parra writes: "The meat is edible and most scrumptious with oil and vinegar." The first two folding plates depict elaborate specimen cabinets containing crustaceans and netted fish. The last three plates illustrate an unfortunate black man afflicted with hydrocele. Parra was born in Tavira, Portugal and arrived in Havana in 1766 on commission by the Spanish government to collect specimens for the museum of natural history in Madrid. In addition to the present work, he produced a descriptive catalogue of the fish and crustaceans native to the island, which is also excessively rare. The collation recorded by the NUC, which locates seven copies, is wrong, as is that in Sabin. A magnificent example of early Caribbean book production. Rare.

        NOTES ON THE STATE OF VIRGINIA

      London, 1787. Contemporary calf, expertly rebacked. Upper board edges and corners restored, in matching gold tooling. Bookplate on front pastedown, contemporary ink signature on titlepage, map strengthened at folds, else internally very clean and bright. Very good. In a half morocco and cloth box, spine gilt. The first English edition of Jefferson's famous work. This is the only book-length work by Jefferson to be published in his lifetime, and has been called "one of America's first permanent literary and intellectual landmarks." It was largely written in 1781 and first published in Paris, in French, in 1785. Written in the form of answers to questions about Virginia, the book supplies a description of the geography, with an abundance of supporting material and unusual information. As J.M. Edelstein notes: "Jefferson wrote about things which interested him deeply and about which he knew a great deal; the NOTES, therefore, throws a fascinating light on his tastes, curiosities, and political and social opinions." The handsome map which accompanies this edition (but is often lacking), based on the Fry and (Peter) Jefferson map, was not issued with the Paris editions. The story of the creation of this book and its publishing history is an interesting one. It is told fully by Millicent Sowerby in her catalogue of Jefferson's library, where it occupies some thirty pages in small type.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      O. O. u. D. - 4 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo. An ein "Jettchen", d. i. Henriette Coeler: "Zwar hab' ich, mein liebes Jettchen, schon vor einigen Wochen meinen warmen, herzlichen Dank für Ihren lieben Brief ausgesprochen [.]; allein bald muß ich fürchten daß Sie ihn nicht erhalten haben [.] Wie gerne hätte ich Ihnen diese Weihnachten eine kleine Freude gemacht, allein ich kon[n]te es nicht u. muß es mir vorbehalten. Möchte Ihnen doch der Himmel ein so reiches Ihr Herz beglückendes Geschenk geben! [.]". - In Weißenfels, wo sich die Familie der Schriftstellerin 1787 niedergelassen hatte, lernte Luise Brachmann Novalis und dessen Schwester Sidonie von Hardenberg kennen, mit der sie eine enge Freundschaft verband. "Novalis empfahl sie Schiller, der einige ihrer Gedichte in die 'Horen' und die 'Musenalmanache' für 1798 und 1799 aufnahm. 1803 unternahm Brachmann mit ihrem Vater eine Reise nach Weimar und Jena, wo sie von Schiller, Johann Bernhard Vermehren und anderen empfangen wurden. Nach dem Tod ihres Vaters 1804 versuchte sie, von der Schriftstellerei zu leben, und veröffentlichte Gedichte und Erzählungen (Novellen, 1822)" (DBE, Saur). Ständig in finanziellen Problemen und privaten Problemen ausgesetzt, suchte sie "nach einem exzentrischen Leben aus Liebesgram den Tod in der Saale" (Kosch I, 206).

        Domenico QUAGLIO (1787 München 1837). Friedhof St. Johannes, Nürnberg 1819

      - Domenico Quaglio (1787 München - Hohenschwangau 1837). Friedhof St. Johannes in Nürnberg. 1819 . Kreidelithograhie mit Weißhöhung auf Papier. -- Technik: -- Kreidelithograhie mit Weißhöhung auf Papier. unten links im Stein signiert: "DQuaglio. del. fec. 1819. " und bezeichnet: "Kirchhof von St. Iohannes mit der Aussicht auf die Burg zu Nürnberg". -- Maße: -- Darstellung: 37 x 41,3 cm. Papier: 41,7 x 49,5 cm -- Zustand: -- Sehr guter Zustand, winziger, professionel restauriert Einriss am oberen rechten Rand ausserhalb der Darstellung. -- Beschreibung: -- In dem vorliegenden Blatt präsentiert Domenico Quaglio einen Blick auf den viel gerühmten NürnbergerFriedhof. Die drei Kreuze sind Teil eines vom Gläubigen abzuschreitenden Kreuzweges, der ihn von derStadt zum Friedhof führt und den Leidensweg Christi nachvollziehen lässt. Der hier gezeigte Kalvarienbergist die vorletzte Station. Sieben Bildstöcke führen schließlich über die Kreuzigung hin zu einer Grablegungsgruppe. Diese Arbeiten werden dem seit 1490 in Nürnberg tätigen Bildhauer Adam Kraft zugeschrieben. Auch wenn es Quaglio um die architektonisch korrekte Wiedergabe geht, so weicht dieseNüchternheit doch einem Stimmungsbild, dass beinahe vergessen macht, dass die Gläubigen hier nur vorsteinernen Abbildern stehen. Quaglio veröffentlichte dieses Blatt 1819 in seiner Sammlung denkwürdiger Gebaeude des Mittelalters inTeutschland. Gerade für die deutschen Künstler der Romantik sollte der Nürnberger Kalvarienberg einebesondere Bedeutung erhalten, liegt doch nicht weit von hier entfernt Albrecht Dürer begraben. Am 6. April 1828 trafen sich hier von überall her angereiste Künstler, um seinen dreihundertsten Todestag zufeiern. In Ludwig Emil Grimms berühmter Darstellung dieser Feier am Grabe verknüpft er die Skulpturdes gekreuzigten Jesus geschickt mit einer Apotheose Dürers. -- [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The History of Scotland During the Reigns of Queen Mary and King James VI. Till his accession to the Crown of England. The Eleventh Edition, with emendations and additions.

      Printed for T. Cadell, London 1787 - FIRST REVISED EDITION, 2 vols., 8vo, pp. xii, 534, [2]; [iv], 559, [45] + portrait frontispiece in vol. 1. Contemporary biscuit calf, spines gilt in compartments with central urn and bird tools, red and green morocco labels. Some minor foxing, a bit more to frontispiece. A touch of rubbing to extremities, one snag to head of vol. 2 spine but a fresh and attractive set. Ownership inscription of one of the Grieves (William?) of Ord House to front pastedowns. This book 'was a huge success because Robertson appeared to his readers to move Scotland into the mainstream of polite culture', seeing four editions within two years and more in the following decades. This revised edition was 'stimulated by his anger over a pirated edition projected by John Murray' and Robertson 'intended that the set would represent, as he wrote in 1785, 'what may be considered as an authentic Edition, which has got the last polish from the hand of the Author' (Robertson to A. Strahan, Duke University)' (ODNB). ESTC T71141. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Domesday-book being quoted in several descriptions ... In order to render every article as clear as possible, the verbal descriptions, where capable, are illustrated by drawings.” - from introduction. Francis Grose (1731 - 1791) was an eminent English antiquary. His father had secured a position in the College of Arms which he left in 1763. He has been left in comfortable circumstances by his father but entered into the Surrey militia of which he became an adjutant and paymaster. However, his lifestyle was such that he quickly found himself without funds. He had a talent for drawing and undertook a work which was published over a period of years, and quickly became very successful, “Views of Antiquities in England and Wales” begun in 1773. He kept adding volumes to it and the islands of Guernsey and Jersey were completed in 1787 .

        Catechismus Romanus: ex decreto Concilii Tridentini iussu S. Pii V editus.

      [Rome], Propaganda Fide, 1786 [= 1787]-1787. - 2 volumes. 8vo. The pages progress from right to left like a normal Arabic book. With an Arabic title-page on the second page of each volume, each with the Propaganda Fide's woodcut Jesus and apostles device and each preceded (on the back of the same leaf) by a Latin half-title. Further with woodcut tail-pieces, 1 woodcut decorated initial, and tailpieces and factotums built up from cast fleurons. Set in 2 sizes of nashk Arabic type, with the 13-page dedication to Pope Pius VI and a few other preliminary pages also in Latin on the facing pages, set in roman and italic type. [40], "976" [= 980]; [8], "855" [= 847], [1 blank] pp. Early 19th-century half sheepskin parchment, sewn on recessed cords with a hollow back, hand-lettered spine titles, shell-marbled sides, brown sprinkled edges. First unabridged Arabic edition of the catechism translated from the Latin version authorized by the Council of Trent and the most extensive Arabic catechism ever published, comprising 1827 pages plus preliminaries. It follows the Roman Catholic rite and was printed and published by the Propaganda Fide in Rome. It is based on the Latin text authorized by the Council of Trent under Pope Pius V, first published in Latin in 1566. While some small Arabic catechisms of a few dozen pages had been printed as early as 1580, only a few more extensive ones had appeared, with Bellarmino's growing from 86 pages (not including the parallel Latin text) in 1613 to 411 pages in 1770 and De Beauvais and Richelieu's 1640 Paris edition comprising 415 pages. The present edition is probably the most extensive Arabic work that the Propaganda Fide ever published. Volume 1 is dated 1786 on the Latin half-title and it may have been issued without the dedication (quires *-2*) in that year, but the dedication is dated 22 December 1787 and volume 2 is dated 1787 on the half-title. The Vatican established the Propaganda Fide in 1622 to promote Catholic missionary work, especially in the Middle and Near East, and it set up its own printing office in Rome in 1626. The printing office acquired many types for exotic languages from various earlier Roman printing offices that had operated under the authority of or in close cooperation with the Vatican and also had many new types cut for them, mostly by their own in-house punchcutters. In this way they assembled what was probably the largest collection of exotic printing types in the world, most of them exclusive to their press. The press had declined in the 18th-century, but began to flourish again when the future cardinal Sefano Borgia took chage of the Propaganda Fide and Giovanni Cristoforo Amaduzzi of the press in 1770. The type used for the main text of the present catechism was cut for the Propaganda Fide, probably in-house, and first used for Tommaso Obizzino, Thesaurus Arabico-Syro-Latina, 1636. With a nineteenth-century library stamp, apparently from the Propaganda Fide's own college, in the unprinted areas on both Arabic title-pages (only partly legible, but apparently reading "Pont. Univ. de Propaganda Fide"). With occasional minor and mostly marginal foxing and an occasional quire slightly browned, but otherwise in very good condition, with only an occasional tiny hole or small marginal chip. Only slightly trimmed, preserving an occasional deckle. The most ambitious Arabic catechism produced to this date. Schnurrer 308; WorldCat (2 copies); not in Smitskamp, Philologia orientalis.

        Autograph letter signed

      1787. Signed. ARNOLD, Benedict.Autograph letter signed.London, April 30, 1787.Outstanding two-page autograph letter, dated 1787, from Benedict Arnold to his Canadian fiduciary, James Hayt, rebuking him over the mishandling of Arnold?'s property and instructing him to make immediate preparations in St. John, New Brunswick, for the arrival of Arnold and his family from London, written and signed by Benedict Arnold.In this scathing letter, Arnold rebukes James Hayt for the mishandling of his property of his property in St. John, New Brunswick. After Arnold committed his infamous acts of treason during the Revolutionary War, he fled to England. However, instead of being hailed as a hero, he was accorded neither acclaim nor position. Wracked by disappointment, he decided to move to Canada. This letter concerns James Hayt?'s failure to take care of Arnold?'s Canadian estate and to adequately prepare for Arnold?'s imminent arrival in St. John.The letter, which is addressed on the last page to Mr. James Hayt of St. Johns[sic], New Brunswick and which bears a return address of General Arnold, London, is written entirely in Arnold?'s hand on the first two pages of the folded sheet. It reads: ?"London, April 20th, 1787, Dear Sir, I have wrote you several times since my arrival in England, but to my great astonishment, & mortification, I have never read a line from you or any of my other friends at St. Johns since I left it, nor do I know to what cause to impute your Silence. From the assurances which your brother gave me, that he did not doubt he should be able to collect Six or Eight hundred pounds in Bill in Debt I have for some time been in expectation of Receiving a handsome remittance from Mr. Henry, instead of which I have lately been presented with several of his Draufts, — With the property which I left in his hands I cannot consider it possible that he would be under a necessity of drawing on me, and why he has done it I cannot conceive. I can only conjecture and am much alarmed, lest he should take this advantage of my absence, to abuse his trust, and embezzle my property. — I wrote you and your Brother but I am on this subject and inclosed a power of Atty to him should my fears Respectg. Mr. Henry be realized. I beg you will both put yourselves to prevent his Injuring me, and take the Charge of my Affairs into your own hands, for which purpose, this letter, should my power of Atty to your Brother have miscarried, shall be your sufficient authority, & I make no doubt will answer the purpose until my Arrival at St. Johns. — The ship which I have chartered is near loaded. I expect to Embark in Eight or nine days, for St. Johns, with my family, I took the liberty in several former letters to request you would be so good as to Assist Mr. Henry in procuring me the largest & best house you could get for their reception, which I now repeat, lest those letters should have miscarried, I wish the House to be ready by the Middle of June, & engaged for 16 to 18 months, by the end of which time I hope to have one built, — I shall bring out a very general & handsome assortment of good, & have some proposals to make to you when I come out which may be to our mutual advantage — Pray present my Compl. to all enquiring Friends… B. Arnold.?"Although Arnold did eventually arrive in St. John and become engaged in the mercantile trades and lumber industry, he was not a success. Even there, he failed to find any sort of warm welcome. In 1791, he returned permanently to London. This letter seems to foreshadow the difficulties Arnold would face in Canada and, indeed, for the rest of his life.Text exceptionally clear and fine, original crease marks, a few small open tears to rear leaf not affecting text (from seal removal), a few spots of embrowning. An exceptional autograph letter in near-fine condition. Quite scarce and desirable.

        Winterlandschaft mit Schlittschuhläufern (Ölgemälde auf Platte).

      19. Jahrhundert. Ölgemälde auf Holzplatte; Format: 43,3 x 35,2 cm. Der hochwertige Barockrahmen (Torrigiani Altgold, Rahmenbreite: ca. 5 cm) wurde eigens für das Bild angefertigt. Das Gemälde zeigt eine niederländische, von Schnee- und Eisflächen bedeckte Winterlandschaft, in der sich mehrere Personen, einige von ihnen augenscheinlich auf Schlittschuhen, bewegen. Im rechten Bildbereich ist ein reetgedecktes Bauerngehöft zu sehen. Das dürre Geäst mehrerer Bäume unterstreicht die Kargheit der Landschaft. Ein rückseitiger Galerieaufkleber weist das Gemälde als Werk des niederländischen Malers Andreas Schelfhout (1787 - 1870) aus und beschreibt das Bild zusätzlich mit folgendem Text: "Hiver - De nombreux . circulent sur une riviere prise par la glace. A gauche une barque a moitie echouee sur le bord; de l'autre cote le batiments d'une ferme entoureede quelques grands arbres." Schelfhout, ein Schüler des Theatermalters Johannes Breckenheimer, spezialisierte sich früh auf Landschaftsmalerei. Bevorzugte Motive wurden niederländische Winterlandschaften, die Schelfhout in zumeist kleinformatigen Gemälden abbildete (im Niederländischen gibt es für diese Bilder den Begriff "Schelfhoutjes"). Schelfhouts Bilder sind vor allem in Niederländischen Museen (Amsterdam, Haarlem, Rotterdam), aber auch in Brüssel, London und Frankfurt (Städel) anzutreffen. Schelfhouts Gemälde und Aquarelle sind zum Teil hochdotiert und werden in zahlreichen europäischen Auktionshäusern gehandelt, unter anderem bei Christie's Amsterdam, wo sein Werk "An extensive winter landscape with skaters and a horse-drawn sledge" im November 2014 für USD 211.000 den Besitzer wechselte; sein kleinformatiges Gemälde "A winter landscape with skaters on a frozen waterway" fand am selben Tag zum Zuschlagpreis von USD 34.000 ein neues Zuhause. Trotz der rückseitigen Zuschreibung und obwohl das Bild von Motiv und Darstellung her perfekt in das Werk Andreas Schelfhouts paßt und große motivische Ähnlichkeiten zu anderen Werken des Malers aufweist, ist nicht sicher, ob es sich tatsächlich um ein Werk dieses Malers (oder aber um die Arbeit eines Nachahmers oder Kopisten handelt). Es wird daher nur als zugeschriebenes Werk angeboten.. Das Gemälde weist deutliche Abplatzungen und Bereibungen auf, insbesondere an den Rändern, aber teilweise auch auf der Fläche des Bildes. Es ist somit an sich restaurierungsbedürftig, beweist aber auch im vorhandenen Zustand noch seinen Charme. Die Kosten für eine komplette Restaurierung lägen nach Auskunft einer Kieler Restaurierungswerkstatt im Preisbereich zwischen EUR 500 und EUR 700.
