In den Rändern ungleich beschnitten, Knickfalte am linken Rand, verso am Oberrand Reste alter Verklebung. Provenienz: Sammlung H. Geller, Dresden.. Die Porträt- und Historienmalerin Caroline Bardua war u.a. in Weimar, Dresden und Berlin tätig. Ihre künstlerische Ausbildung erhielt sie ab 1805 an der Weimarer Malerschule, wo sie Schülerin von H. Meyer (1760-1832) war. In Weimar schloß sie sich dem Kreis um Goethe, Wieland und Johanna Schopenhauer an. 1808 ging sie nach Dresden und wurde Schülerin von F.G. von Kügelgen (1772-1820). In dieser Zeit befreundete sie sich mit C.D. Friedrich (1774-1840), den sie mehrfach porträtierte; Friedrich selbst besuchte sie 1811 in Ballenstedt. In diesem Jahr schloß sie auch Bekanntschaft mit der Fürstin von Zerbst und deren Schwester, der Prinzessin Christine von Sondershausen, die beide ihren Witwensitz im Schloß zu Coswig hatten. Die Schwestern richteten ihr ein Atelier im Schloß ein, ein Porträt der Prinzessin Christine zeugt u.a. von diesem Aufenthalt. Anschließend reiste sie mit ihrer Schwester Wilhelmine (1798-1865), die Carolines Leben literarisch festhielt, durch Deutschland, widmete sich der Porträtmalerei und dem Kopieren berühmter Meisterwerke. In Berlin seit 1819, wo sie als eine der angesehensten Porträtistinnen bekannt war und zeitweise für den preußischen Königshof arbeitete, beteiligte sie sich zwischen 1822 und 1840 mehrfach an den Akademie-Ausstellungen. Zu Barduas bekanntesten Porträts zählen das von Christiane von Goethe, geb. Vulpius, sowie ein Bildnis von Johanna Schopenhauer. Zu nennen sind außerdem zwei Bildnisse von Goethe, Porträts des Violinisten Paganini, des Komponisten Carl Maria von Weber oder des Dichters Hans Christian Andersen.

        A journal of remarks and observations as kept by E. G. M. . ..[mostly on board the barque Sarah of London], April 1831-14 March 1833 (with additions to 1835). with an engraved view as frontispiece, 15 full-page, 1 nearly full-page and 1 smaller manuscript maps and coastal profiles, plus a small engraved view ("Tomb of Napoleon") mounted on 1 page. Including: MORSE, Edward George. Lecture Book [notes on anatomical lectures by Joseph Constantine Carpue].[London], November-December 1828. with a matching pair of engravings of a scull on and facing the title-page, and 27 pencil and/or ink anatomical drawings (including 2 full-page), some also with red. 4to (19.5×16.5 cm). Contemporary sheepskin parchment.

      A manuscript ship's journal kept by Edward George Morse (Bromyard 1805?-Deal post 1850?), who no doubt served, among other functions, as the ship's surgeon. Morse made his earliest dated entries in April 1831 at the island Mauritius in the Indian Ocean and others at Madagascar and its surrounding islands from May to August 1831. Morse provides extensive notes on the natural history, topography and people of the Seychelles, Madagascar and the neighbouring islands, and provides detailed maps of many of the islands and coastal areas, along with a few coastal profiles. The two manuscripts are written in a single album of laid paper. Morse used it 1828 to take notes when he attended the London lectures on anatomy and blood circulation by the innovative surgeon Joseph Constantine Carpue, who had pioneered facial reconstructive surgery by introducing ancient Indian techniques. He was famous for illustrating his lectures with chalk drawings, which no doubt served as the models for the anatomical illustrations in Morse's notes. A few clippings and hand-written notes have been inserted.

        Travels to the Westward of the Allegany Mountains, in the States of the Ohio, Kentucky, and Tennessee, and Return to Charlestown, through the Upper Carolinas.

      London: For J. Mawman, 1805. - 8vo., (8 ¼ x 5 ½ inches). Fine folding engraved map of the United States (unevenly browned, offsetting to title page). Contemporary dark green calf, both covers gilt-ruled, the smooth spine in six gilt-ruled compartments, red morocco gilt lettering piece in one, gilt florets in the rest (rebacked, preserving much of the original spine). Provenance: Bookplate of Henry Shaw (1800-1889) to front pastedown. First edition in English, first published in Paris the previous year. Michaux's classic narrative of travels west of the Allegheny Mountains. Michaux is most famous as a botanist and author of the comprehensive "North American Sylva." The 1800-mile journey chronicled in this book began when his father Andrew Michaux embarked on the Baudin voyage to Australia in 1800. "Michaux began to seek an opportunity to continue his father's work in North America. With the support of Jean Chaptal, minister of the interior, he sailed for America and arrived at Charleston, South Carolina, on 9 October 1801. He had been instructed to close down the nursery [founded by his father] at Charleston for economic reasons, and he sent back to France those seedlings he thought worthy of cultivation. In the spring of 1802 Michaux toured the forests of New Jersey with David Hosack and also visited Hosack's newly established Elgin Botanic Garden in New York. From there he made an extended visit to Philadelphia, where he met William Bartram and saw William Hamilton's fine collection of trees at Woodlands. He then made a journey through Pennsylvania, Kentucky, and Tennessee before returning to Carolina, and he met on the way many of his father's old acquaintances. He returned to France at the end of 1803 to organize the shipments of plants and seeds that he had sent back and to make a series of reports on his work. Clearly by then he had formed the idea of producing a major work on the trees of North America" (Ian MacPhail for ANB). Thomson, 822. Howes M-579. Clark II, 106. Sabin 48704. Graff 2780.

        L'Homme des Champs, ou Les Georgiques Francoises Nouvelle Edition Augmentee, Avec Figures

      Chez Levrault, Schoell et Cie. (L'Imprimerie de P. Didot L'Aine), Paris 1805 - 8vo. 225 pp. With four plates and eight vignette illustrations, two each at the beginning of each of the four "chants", all hand-colored sensitively. These are by Catel and engraved by Buchorn, Guttenberg, Halderwang et Mayer. Cohen-de Ricci 279. An updated adaptation of Virgil's masterpiece. The contemporary hand-coloring sets this copy apart from others of this work. The soft coloring -- in the spirit of Fragonard or Boucher -- perfectly suits the bucolic subject matter. Red morocco boards are particularly thick, rendering a box-like solidity to the book as an object, which is further enhanced with gilt work along edges. Light foxing throughout but generally not affecting significantly the plate and illustration pages, thus suggesting that it is very much a function of the acidity of the paper used for the text proper.
