        Thomas Paine: Who Suggested that America should have a Monarch?

      New Rochelle, N.Y. 1805 - Autograph Letter Signed, to Elisha Babcock. New Rochelle, N.Y., July 2, 1805. 1 p., 8 x 10 in., with address leaf. Paine asks a newspaper publisher for the source of a report, that Great Britain had circulated a proposal "among the most influential federalists" recommending that the Duke of Clarence be made the King of America. This letter, attacking the Federalists generally and American monarchists specifically, is completely in line with a campaign he waged in his waning years against any in the United States who might yearn for a constriction of democracy and a resumption of monarchic rule in America. Thomas Paine returned to the United States in 1802, after living most of the previous fifteen years abroad. Shortly after his arrival in the United States he was hosted by Jefferson at the White House, and quickly became the target of Federalist attacks. Paine answered those attacks in published articles and in private letters - the present letter is one of those responses. He also asks why his letter (dated June 8) was not printed in the paper. TranscriptNew Rochelle July 2d '05--Citizen In your paper of June 27, in a piece containing remarks on a paragraph in the Norwich Centinel the writer of the remarks speaking of what several of the feds [i.e. Federalists] had said, adds the dissemination of the sentiments was only a preliminary measure to the acceptance of the proposal made by Great Britain and circulated secretly among the most influential federalists, Hamilton for one, viz, "That Great Britain to should cede Canada to the United States on condition that the Duke of Clarence should be placed on the American throne and recognized as the monarch of America." -- This might have been easily answered by saying We have blackguards enon of our own. I will, however, be obliged to you if you can give me any information respecting this proposal so as it may be traced to some source. You will recollect that Oliver Ellsworth was after his mission expired in France, went over to England, and I informed you near two years ago that he had declared himself a monarchist in a company of 10 or 12 persons and I gave you the name of the gentleman who told me of it and who was one of the company, but you made no use of the information. My last letter (the 8th) is the most important of any I have published. I have been disappointed in not seeing it in your paper. I have reason to believe the matters therein contained stated will be taken up at the next meeting of Congress, and the inquiry at that time, will not be sufficiently understood by those who had not an opportunity of seeing that letter. I know the feds want to keep that letter out of sight. Yours in friendship Thomas PaineHistorical BackgroundThe early 19th century saw the strengthening of Federalist sentiment in New England, culminating in the "Hartford Convention" from December 1814 to January 1815. In this letter, Paine writes Elisha Babcock, publisher of the American Mercury newspaper in Hartford, Connecticut. Paine rails against the "feds" and their supporters, specifically criticizing a notion that had been circulating in Connecticut newspapers that "Great Britain should cede Canada to the United States on condition that the Duke of Clarence should be placed on the American throne and recognized as the monarch of America."Paine asks Babcock for assistance in tracking down the source of this proposal. "I obliged to you if you can give me any information respecting this proposal as it may be traced to some source. You will recollect that Oliver Ellsworth after his mission expired in France, went over to England, and I informed you nearly two years ago that he had declared himself a monarchist in a company of 10 or 12 persons and I gave you the name of the gentleman who told me of it and who was one of the company but you made no use of the information." Ellsworth was a former U.S. Senator from Connecticut - among other political p. (See website for full description)

        Nouvelles méthodes pour la détermination des orbites des comètes.

      Paris: Firmin Didot, 1805. First edition, first issue of the invention of the method of least squares, "the automobile of modern statistical analysis" and the origin of "the most famous priority dispute in the history of statistics" (Stigler). "The great advances in mathematical astronomy made during the early years of the nineteenth century were due in no small part to the development of the method of least squares. The same method is the foundation for the calculus of errors of observation now occupying a place of great importance in the scientific study of social, economic, biological, and psychological problems. Gauss says in his work on the Theory of Motions of the Heavenly Bodies (1809) that he had made use of this principle since 1795 but that it was first published by Legendre. The first statement of the method appeared as an appendix entitled "Sur la méthode des moindres quarrés" in Legendre's Nouvelles méthodes pour la détermination des orbites des comètes, Paris 1805" (Wolberg, 'The Method of Least Squares,' in Designing Quantitative Experiments, 2010).  "[By] 1800 the principle of combining observational equations had evolved, through work of [Tobias] Mayer and [Pierre-Simon] Laplace, to produce a convenient ad hoc procedure for quite general situations. We have also seen how the idea of starting with a mathematical criterion had led, in work of [Roger] Boscovich and Laplace, to an elegant solution suitable for simple linear relationships involving only two unknowns. The first of these approaches developed through problems in astronomy; the second was (at least in these early years) exclusively employed in connection with attempts to determine the figure of the earth. These two lines came together in the work of a man who, like Laplace, was an excellent mathematician working on problems in both arenas

He then leaps on to a table to deliver an oration on Nelson's victory, in a brilliant parody of Thelwall 'in full trim' -." (Ref: John Thelwall in the Wordsworth Circle: The Silenced Partner.

      Garnery rue de Seine; Laporte quai des Lunettes arcade Lamoignon, Paris 1805 - Deuxième Édition. 4 Bde. Paris, Garnery, rue de Seine; Laporte, quai des Lunettes, arcade Lamoignon, 1805-1807. 8vo. (1:) XIX, 504; (2:) VIII, 541; (3:) 500; (4:) 495 S. Originale einheitliche Interimsbroschuren. (unbeschnittener Originalzustand, Papier sehr frisch). Malevilles (1741-1824) berühmte vierbändige "Analyse raisonnée" über die Diskussion zum Code Civil im Staatsrat war ein umfassender, hochinteressanter Kommentar über das Zustandekommen, die Grundlagen und die Ausgestaltung jedes Artikels. Malleville behandelt darin in durchaus unparteiischer Weise die am umstrittensten und am kontroversesten diskutierten Fragen im Entstehungsprozeß des Code Civil. In der Befolgung der Legalordnung des Code civil zeigt Maleville an den einzelnen Gesetzen auf, warum die eine oder andere Meinung bei der Ausgestaltung des Gesetzes den Vorzug erhalten hat. Er fügt an, warum die eine oder andere Lücke geblieben ist und vor allem, auf welche Weise die geltende Gesetzesregelung vom Ius Romanum auf der einen Seite und dem Gewohnheitsrecht (droit coutumier) auf der anderen Seite abgewichen ist. - Im Jahre 1800, an VIII, am 24. Thermidor des französischen Revolutionskalenders, wurde Maleville von Napoléon beauftragt, zusammen mit TRONCHET, PORTALIS und BIGOT-PRÉAMENEU einen Entwurf eines Code Civil auszuarbeiten. Von Napoléon war Maleville als Sekretär und Redakteur innerhalb der Kommisison beauftragt. Seine drei Kollegen beteiligten ihn aber gleichberechtigt an allen Kommsisionssitzungen. Innerhalb der Kommission suchte er den Standpunkt des Ius Romanum bei der Ausgestaltung des Entwurfes einzubringen. Bisweilen schoß Maleville auch über dass Ziel hinaus, beispielsweise als er entgegen den Errungenschaften der französischen Revolution, die auch die gesetzlichze Gleichberechtigung der Frau forderte, die Verwirklichung des patriachalischen, römischen Familienmodells forderte. Die Paterfamilias war für ihn beispielgebend und sollte nach seinen Vorstellungen auch Inhalt des Code civil werden. In diesem Sinne lehnte Maleville auch die Ehescheidung ab, einer der großen Errungenschaften der französischen Revolution. Stark romanistisch war er auch im Erbrecht, vor allem bei der im Ius Romanum ausgeprägten grenzelosen Testierfreiheit. - Maleville war bis zum Jahre 1770 Advokat am Parlament zu Bordeaux, zog sich dann aber nach Domme im Pérogard zurück. Die französische Revolution drängte ihn wieder ins öffentliche Leben zurück. Dort übernahm er Aufgaben in der Justiz und in der französischen Gesetzgebung. Maleville war ein Parteigänger der Revolution und wurde im Jahre 1790 zunächst Mitglied, später Direktor des Direktoriums im Département Dordogne. Ein Jahr später wurde er als Richter an das Kassationsgericht zu Paris (cour de cassation), dem obersten französischen Gericht, berufen. Dort wirkte er als Richter bis 1794. Von 1795 bis 1799 wurde Maleville in den Ältestenrat berufen. Im Jahre 1800 schloß er sich Napoléon Bonaparte an, der ihn erneut zum Richter am Kassationsgericht ernannte, wo er bald Präsident der zivilrechtlichen Abteilung wurde. Im Jahre 1806 wurde er zum Senator ernannt und in den Grafenstand erhoben, wandte sich später jedoch von Napoléon ab. Er stimmte für die Entlassung Napoléons und die Rückkher der Bourbonen zu. Nachdem er sich mit der Restauration verbündet hatte, wurde er 1814 zum Pair und 1817 zum Marquis ernannt. (unbeschnittener Originalzustand, Papier sehr frisch).

        The Life and Pontificate of Leo the Tenth.

      Liverpool: J. McCreery, 1805. Four volumes, quarto, engraved frontispiece portraits of Pope Leo, Aldus, Luther and Raphael, with half-titles; in contemporary marbled calf, gilt, double labels. First edition of Roscoe's great life of the Medici pope Leo X. Born Giovanni de' Medici, Leo X's papacy (1513 to 1521) had enormous influence on geopolitics in the Age of Discovery. His relationship with King Manuel of Portugal (see previous item) was critical - their relationship was cemented by King Manuel's gift of Hanno, an albino elephant, on Leo's accession to the papacy. The last non-priest to be appointed Pope, he is supposed to have remarked to his brother "since God has given us the papacy, let us enjoy it": one of the features of his enjoyment was a series of processions round Rome, almost always featuring Hanno in the parade of exotic animals, many of them gifts from the Portuguese monarch.Leo X was the second son of Lorenzo de' Medici, and a patron of learning and the arts who secured a prominent place in the history of culture. His was a "golden age" but he is also remembered as the pope during whose pontificate Protestantism first took form. There have been several editions of this extensive biography, still the standard life of Leo X, the most recent appearing in 1973. The frontispieces offsetting onto title-pages, occasional foxing and slight rubbing but generally an excellent set.

        A Short Account of the Cause of the Disease in Corn, called by the Farmers the Blight, the Mildew, and the Rust [in] Practical Observations on the British Grasses.

      London: Printed for H.D. Symonds and Curtis, 1805. Octavo, six engraved plates in the first work, and one folding engraved plate by Bauer in the second work; contemporary half calf (restored). One of remarkably few works by Joseph Banks to have appeared in print. Despite his general pre-eminence in scientific and enlightenment London, and despite having been one of the most prolific correspondents known, Banks was remarkably shy of print and hardly anything was published over his name.He had a particular interest in agricultural crops. He became alerted to the increasing problem of blight in wheat and corn in 1804 and, in the face of a devastating drop in the harvest that year, worked with Franz Bauer (Ferdinand Bauer's elder brother) in examining and recording specimens in an attempt to discover the means by which the disease was transmitted. "Blight" or "rust" in wheat and corn was a problem for farmers both in England and abroad, including Australia: 'The climate of the British Isles is not the only one that is liable to the Blight in Corn... Specimens received from the Colony of New South Wales shew that considerable mischief was done to the wheat crop there in the year 1803 by a parasitic plant, very similar to the English one' (p. 19).Banks' treatise, which was 'intended to 'awake the energies of reason' among farmers and agriculturalists willing and able to study the day-to-day progress of their crops' (Carter, Sir Joseph Banks, p. 405), was issued in various forms, both separately and, as here, as a supplement to other works. Issued here with a separate title-page, it forms an adjunct to Curtis' Practical Observations on the British Grasses. This is the third edition of Curtis' work, but the first to include Banks' treatise.The folding plate comprises eight figures after original drawings by Bauer, which were among the first he had achieved with the aid of a microscope. Some spotting and embrowning, but a good copy.

        A Voyage Round the World, in the Years 1800, 1801, 1802, 1803, and 1804; in which the Author visited the principal Islands in the Pacific Ocean, and the English settlements of Port Jackson and Norfolk Island.

      London: Richard Phillips, 1805. Three volumes, duodecimo, bound together in attractive contemporary tree calf, spine gilt with crimson label, a fine copy. First edition of a historically significant account of trading between New South Wales ports and the greater Pacific. Turnbull's book was the first serious account of commerce and trade originating from New South Wales. It was an influential book in promoting the idea of Australia as a venue for commercial success. A second edition was published eight years later as a single large volume. Turnbull established new entrepreneurial trade networks between Hawaii, Tahiti, and other islands of the Polynesian south Pacific.Turnbull and his partner Byers, envious of the profits being made by American traders, fitted out the Margaret for a speculative trading venture. They arrived in Sydney from the Cape of Good Hope in February 1801, and Turnbull gives a long description of the town, and the trading activities and agricultural prospects of the colony. They made similar stays in Tahiti and Hawaii (where they learned of Kamehameha's planned invasion of Kauai). Turnbull set up a business in Tahiti curing hogs with salt obtained in Hawaii. He is also remembered for the discovery of three islands in the Tuamotus.Turnbull was a canny observer and writes lucidly, accordingly his book gives an excellent insight into commerce, politics and social conditions of Tahiti and Hawaii at the beginning of the nineteenth century. Tahitian society is well described, and over two chapters (pp. 57-88) concern Hawaii. Interpersonal relations with the high chief Tamahama are of some interest, Turnbull clearly held him in high esteem: 'No one better understands his interest than this ambitious chief: no one better knows how to improve an original idea. The favours of Vancouver, and his other European benefactors, would have been thrown away on any other savage; but Tamahama possesses a genius above his situation." Political rivalry, desertion, rogue beachcombers, and numerous other contingencies made trade both exciting and profitable for the likes of Turnbull.However, this is by no means a narrow commercial narrative, it includes acute insights into Polynesian society at a time of radical change. For example, Turnbull informs us that 'the Sandwich Islands are extremely well peopled, all circumstances of their nature and fertility being considered: and the women, according to Mr. Young's account, are said to be more numerous than the men; whereas in Otaheite the women are not reckoned to amount to more than one tenth the part of the population.'. Joints a little worn.

        A Short Account of the Cause of the Disease in Corn...

      London: printed for J. Harding, 1805. Octavo, 32 pp. including the half-title, with a folding plate; with the half-title in "Mackaness" morocco, with the Mackaness bookplate. One of remarkably few works published by Banks, but an apt demonstration of his wide range of scientific interest. The problems of blight in wheat and corn were a considerable problem for farmers both in England and abroad, including Australia: 'The climate of the British Isles is not the only one that is liable to the Blight in Corn... Specimens received from the Colony of New South Wales shew that considerable mischief was done to the wheat crop there in the year 1803 by a parasitic plant, very similar to the English one' (p.19).Banks wrote this as a supplement for the fourth edition of Curtis's Practical Observations on the British Grasses, 1805, where it appeared with a separate title-page; however that printing, which has a different imprint, ran to only 14 pp. Carter (Sir Joseph Banks... guide to biographical and bibliographical sources, p. 172) identifies a separate printing like ours, but it has a different publisher (Bulmer). Ferguson notes the Curtis edition (399a) but does not record any separate publication.The folding plate comprises eight figures, all based on original drawings by Francis Bauer, Ferdinand Bauer's elder brother. Some waterstaining in lower part of most pages, mostly marginal, otherwise a good copy.

Proceedings of a General Court Martial of the Line, Held by Order of, And in Pursuance of a Warrant from Lieutenant General His Royal Highness the Duke of Cumberland, (Thereunto Duly Authorized by Warrant from His Majesty) Commanding the Forces within the South Western District; at Dorchester Barracks, In the County of Dorset, On Monday the 2d Day of September, 1805. Weymouth: Printed by M. Virtue, [1805]. 84 pp. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5"). Stab-stitched pamphlet bound into recent quarter cloth over paper-covered boards, hand-lettered title label to spine. Light toning to text, somewhat heavier in places, light foxing to a few leaves, light browning to title page. A very good copy. * Only edition located. Captain Henry Charles Edward Vernon Graham, of the 15th (or King's) Regiment of [Light] Dragoons was faced with two charges. The first charge was "scandalous and infamous behaviour, unbecoming the character of an officer and gentleman" occasioned by accusing an officer, Captain Broadhurst,"before a Sergeant of his Troop, of having behaved improperly" by observing to the sergeant "that he had a great mind to put Captain Broadhurst under arrest" (6). The second charge related to letters sent to Capt. Graham to his Commanding Officer stating that "the whole of the Junior Officers [were] forming a systematic plan to drive him [Capt. Graham] out of the Regiment (7).In the event, Graham was found not guilty on the first charge but guilty on the second, for which it was ordered that he be reprimanded by the commanding officer in the presence of the field officers of the Regiment. Graham appears to have sponsored this publication. The trial ends with an afterword by Graham that adds his perspective and notes that he printed a number of copies of his trial report for "the information of my relations, and those friends most interested in my welfare" (83-84).

        Mémoires de chimie....

      (Paris), (vers 1805). ____ Première édition. Ouvrage rare qui n'a jamais été mis dans le commerce. "En 1792, M. Lavoisier avait conçu le projet de faire un recueil de tous ses Mémoires lus à l'Académie depuis vingt ans. C'était en quelque manière faire l'histoire de la chimie moderne. Pour rendre cette histoire plus intéressante et plus complète, il s'était proposé d'y intercaler les mémoires des personnes qui, ayant adopté son système, avaient fait des expériences à son appui. Ce recueil devait former environ huit volumes. L'Europe sait pourquoi ils n'ont pas pu être achevés. On a retrouvé presque tout le premier, le second en entier, quelques feuilles du quatrième ... Ces fragments n'auraient point paru s'ils ne contenaient un Mémoire de M. Lavoisier qui réclame, d'après les faits qu'il y expose, la nouvelle théorie chimique comme lui appartenant. C'est donc un devoir envers lui que de fixer l'opinion des Savants sur cette vérité." (Préface de Madame Lavoisier). Ces volume contiennent 39 mémoires dont 29 de Lavoisier, 12 paraissant ici pour la première fois. Ils n'ont jamais été réédités. L'édition des "Oeuvres" ne reprend curieusement qu'une partie de ces "Mémoires". A l'exception de quelques exemplaires donné à des Institutions ou à des savants, tous les exemplaires ont été vendus brochés, en 1836, à la mort de Mme Lavoisier. Celui-ci est en reliure d'époque. Les pages de titres n'ont jamais été imprimées, seuls les faux-titres. Dans cet exemplaire, on a relié le faux-titre du tome 2 en tête du tome 1 et il manque le feuillet suivant, une introduction expliquant la raison de la publication de l'ouvrage. Duveen, Klickstein 199 et suiv. Reliure légèrement usée, mais bon exemplaire dans l'ensemble. *-------* First edition. Privately printed by Mme Lavoisier and distributed to eminent scientists.'Lavoisier's preparation of a complete eight-volume edition of his memoirs was halted by his imprisonment and execution during the Reign of Terror; he left behind him only the greater part of Vol.I, all of Vol.II and a small part of Vol.IV. His widow later had these fragments privately printed in two volumes and distributed them to eminent scientists and institutions to ensure that Lavoisier would receive the credit he deserved for his chemical work ... The fifth memoir in Vol.II contains Lavoisier's claim to the discovery of oxidation; it was this claim that prompted Mme. Lavoisier to publish the Mémoires.' Norman 1297. In-8.

      Madrid, En la Imprenta Real, 1805.. FIRST EDITION. 4°, contemporary full crimson morocco (slight rubbing at hinges and in center of upper cover), with the binder's tag on the front pastedown of Pasqual Carsi y Vidal, Madrid (see below). Wide gilt roll-tooled borders, smooth spine richly gilt in five compartments, with the short-title in the second, floral baskets in the others, all edges gilt, silk ribbon place marker. Light marginal foxing on a few plates and slight soiling at head of a few leaves. In very fine condition. Bookplate of D. Maria Cristina, Queen of Spain. 92, 234 pp., 8 engraved folding plates, 3 folding tables. *** FIRST EDITION of this extensive report on the earliest government program of fumigation in Spain: a major public health initiative undertaken in an attempt to stop the spread of yellow fever. As recounted in the Memória (pp. 1-92), after yellow fever broke out in Malaga in 1804, Prime Minister Manuel Godoy (1792-97 and 1801-08) quickly established a cordon sanitaire around Andalucía, Murcia, and Valencia. Then he sent to Paris for the latest in fumigation equipment and set Spanish engineers to producing copies. There was some resistance to using fumigation, results to that point having been inconclusive. Godoy instructed a number of physicians and scientists to test Morveau's method for its effect on people, animals and clothing when various mineral acids were used (sulfuric, nitric, hydrochloric). The Memória details the results of these tests and describes the quarantine measures that were taken when fumigation alone was deemed insufficient. The Memória is followed by 25 documentos justificativos, which include detailed descriptions of the fumigation apparatus, instructions for use, reports on the effects of fumigation, a much-debated trial run in Cartagena, descriptions of other methods of fumigation, and an account of all known cases of yellow fever in 1804-1805 in Andalucía, Valencia, and Murcia. The plates that accompany the documents illustrate the apparatus and its use for fumigating clothing and people, as well as the set-up of a quarantine hospital. Three large folding tables provide a sample of how a town (in this case Cartagena) could be divided into districts for purposes of fumigation; statistics on the outcome of yellow fever in patients at the hospital in Antiguones; and statistics on the spread and effects of the yellow fever in 1804-1805 in Andalucía, Valencia, and Murcia. Given that in 5 months, 45,000 people died, it is no surprise that Godoy was extremely eager to curb the disease. Severe outbreaks of yellow fever occurred throughout the nineteenth century, until mosquitos were identified as the disease vector in the 1880s and attention was shifted to eradicating them. Louis-Bernard Guyton de Morveau (1737-1816), a French chemist, is credited with producing the first systematic method of chemical nomenclature. He was among the founders of the École Polytechnique, where he taught mineralogy. According to the Memoria, while this volume was in press (awaiting completion of the engraved plates), a third edition of Morveau's work on fumigation appeared. However, we have not been able to locate any edition in OCLC. The binder Pasqual Carsí y Vidal, who was active in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century, worked in Madrid under D. Carlos III, D. Carlos IV and D. Fernando VII and was among the most noted binders of that period. He developed a neoclassical style influenced by his trip to England at D. Carlos III's expense. From 1803 he led an atelier whose students included Manuel Cobo. Carsí y Vidal was Encuadernador de Cámara from 1799, Librero de Cámara in 1806, and principal binder for Principe D. Fernando beginning in 1807. After D. Fernando VII returned to Madrid following the Napoleonic invasion, Carsí was also Jefe del Obrador de Encuadernaciones de la Imprenta Real. The binder's tag is the same as the one illustrated in Blas Benito, p. 44. D. Maria Christina (1806-1878), whose bookplate is on the pastedown, was the fourth and final wife of D. Fernando VII, and his niece. She is also known as Maria Christina Bourbon of the Two Sicilies, and was queen consort of Spain from 1829 until her husband's death in 1833. Then she acted as queen regent until 1840, successfully holding the throne during the Carlist Wars for her daughter, the future Isabella II. *** Palau 183312: lists without collation. On Carsí y Vidal, see Ollero and Ramos, Enciclopédia de la encuadernación, p. 61, with an illustration of this binding.

        Selbstporträt von Caspar David Friedrich, im Profil nach rechts.

Welten der Romantik, Ostfildern 2015, S. 112, Nr. 35. - Bei dem vorliegenden Holzschnitt handelt es sich um einen von bisher sieben bekannten Abzügen des um 1805 entstandenen Holzschnittes mit dem Selbstporträt von Caspar David Friedrich, welches kurz nach der größeren Version seines Selbstbildnisses von 1803 entstanden sein dürfte (Sumowski 1970, S. 136-138; Börsch-Supan und Jähnig 1973, Nr. 74). Laut Börsch-Supan ist das frühere Blatt nach einer Vorzeichnung Friedrichs von seinem Bruder Christian(1779-1843) in Holz geschnitten worden und steht möglicherweise in Verbindung mit der Produktion der drei Holzschnitte \"Die Frau mit dem Spinnennetz zwischen den kahlen Bäumen (Melancholie, Die Spinne)\", \"Die Frau mit dem Raben am Abgrund\" und \"Knabe aufeinem Grab schlafend\". Im späten 18. und frühen 19. Jahrhundert fand der Holzschnitt hauptsächlich als Buchschmuck Verwendung. Börsch-Supan geht daher davon aus, dass die drei erwähnten Holzschnitte als Illustrationen für ein nicht publiziertes Buch - vermutlich ein Band mit Gedichten von Caspar David Friedrich - geplant gewesen waren. Der Holzschnitt mit seinem Selbstbildnis könnte als Autorenportrait gedacht gewesen sein. (Kat. Hamburg 2006, S. 34, Kat. 8) Der vorliegende Holzschnitt von 1805 stellt eine kleinere und vereinfachte Version des früheren Selbstporträts dar und könnte als alternativer Illustrationsentwurf für den Holzschnitt entstanden sein. Offenbar hat Friedrich seinem Bruder mehrere Vorarbeiten zu dem Porträt geliefert, wie es eine Zeichnung in der Hamburger Kunsthalle (Börsch-Supan und Jähnig 1973,. Nr. 73) belegt, die als Vorzeichnung zu dem Holzschnitt einen abweichenden Entwurf darstellt, jedoch von Christian nicht verwendet wurde. Wahrscheinlich hat Christian Friedrich für das Selbstporträt seines Bruders in zwei Stilen experimentiert und sich dann für die Auflage der feinlinigen Fassung in größerem Format entschieden (Kat. Hamburg 2006, S. 36). - Das Pommersche Landesmuseum in Greifswald besitzt fünf weitere Abzüge des vorliegenden Holzschnittes, welche im Jahre 1927 nach der Übergabe des Holzstocks gemeinsam mit “8 Holzschnitten der Familie Friedrich” als Neudrucke angefertigt wurden (Inv. K2/647a-e). Die Blätter und der Druckstock waren danach lange in Vergessenheit geraten, bis sie 1956 von Sigrid Hinz wieder gefunden wurden, jedoch falsch als “Bildnis des Bruders Heinrich Friedrich, geschnitten von Christian Adolf Friedrich” identifziert wurden (Kat. Hamburg 2006, S. 36; Sumowksi 1970, S. 136–138; Börsch-Supan und Jähnig 1973, Nr. 60–62 und Nr. 74). Auch Ursula Meyer veröffentlichte 1963 den Holzschnitt mit dieser Identifizierung (Meyer 1963, Nr. 61 mit Abb. 7). Die Identität des Dargestellten steht jedoch nach einem Vergleich mit dem früheren Selbstporträt Caspar David Friedrichs von 1803 außer Zweifel. Es dürften jedenfalls nur einige wenige frühe Probedrucke von dem Porträt angefertigt worden sein. Aufgrund der Papierqualität des vorliegenden Blattes muss jedoch ein Frühdruck ausgeschlossen werden. Wahrscheinlich ist der Holzschnitt gemeinsam mit den anderen Abzügen 1927 als Neudruck im Greifswalder Museum entstanden. Versand D: 4,00 EUR Graphik, Druckgraphik

        Hochgebirgslandschaft mit den Häusern eines Dorfes – umgeben von Bäumen – vermutlich in Tirol.

      - Bleistift, aquarelliert, auf cremefarbenem Velin, verso ältere Bezeichnung „Rud. Friedr. Wassmann/1805-1860/Alpenlandschaft/Aquarell.". 21,3:27,7 cm. – Verso: Bleistiftskizze eines Gebirgszugs. – Verso Klebereste. Ersten künstlerischen Unterricht erhielt Wasmann bei dem Hamburger Maler Christoffer Suhr (1771-1842); 1824-1828 besuchte er die Akademie in Dresden, wo er hauptsächlich die Kurse von Gustav Heinrich Naeke (1786-1835) besuchte. 1829 kehrte er nach Hamburg zurück, hier erhielt er durch eine Stiftung ein mehrjähriges Stipendium , mit dem er von 1829 an sein Studium an der Münchner Akademie fortsetzte. Hier verkehrte er u.a. mit den Hamburger Künstlern Victor Emil Jansen (1807-1845) und Julius Oldach (1804-1830). Ein Asthmaleiden zwang ihn, ein milderes Klima aufzusuchen und er zog 1830 nach Obermais bei Meran in Tirol. Hier entstanden auf Wanderungen Ölstudien der südlichen Landschaft. 1832 folgte eine Reise nach Rom, wo er drei Jahre blieb. Er schloß sich dort besonders an Emil Janssen an, mit dem er 1833 und 1834 Studienwanderungen durch die Albaner- und Sabinerberge unternahm, sowie an Friedrich Overbeck (1789-1869), unter dessen Einfluß er zum Katholizismus übertrat. 1835 ging Wasmann nach München, kehrte aber, da er sich dort keine Existenz aufbauen konnte, 1839 nach Südtirol zurück. Hier war er ein gesuchter Porträtmaler. 1843-1846 lebte er wieder in Hamburg und heiratete im selben Jahr. Das Paar zog noch 1846 dauerhaft nach Meran, das er während vierzig Jahren nur mehr für einzelne Reisen nach Deutschland verließ. Die religiösen Darstellungen, die er von nun an vornehmlich schuf, treten an Bedeutung hinter das Werk seiner frühen Schaffenszeit zurück. Wasmann hat um die Mitte der sechziger Jahre eine Selbstbiographie geschrieben, die gegen die Mitte der neunziger Jahre von Bernd Grönvold (1859-1924), dem Entdecker und Sachwalter des Werks Wasmanns, aufgefunden und 1896 ediert wurde, aber erst 1915 bei der zweiten Auflage allgemeine Beachtung fand. Die Bedeutung von Wasmanns Werk liegt in seinen unmittelbaren, intensiv erlebten und persönlich empfundenen Landschaftsstudien, in denen er sich vor allem mit der Wirkung des Lichts und den atmosphärischen Gegebenheiten auseinandersetzte. Mit ihnen hat er kurz nach Carl Blechen (1798-1840) und gleichzeitig mit Christian E. B. Morgenstern (1805-1867) und Christian Friedrich Gille (1805-1899) die deutsche Freilichtmalerei vorweggenommen. (Vgl. P. Vignau-Wilberg, Stiftung Oskar Reinhart Winterthur. Bd. 2: Deutsche und österreichische Maler des 19. Jahrhunderts. Zürich, Orell Füssli 1979, S. 355).
