Nei primi anni Cinquanta, compì vari viaggi in Oriente, ottenendo incarichi lavorativi a Costantinopoli anche dal sultano. Nel 1860 ca, si stabilì definitivamente a Trieste, realizzando vedute di soggetto orientale e locale con cui fu presente in quasi tutte le mostre triestine di quegli anni. Nel 1867 inviò opere all'Esposizione Mondiale di Parigi. Veduta panoramica della città di Trieste con animazione di personaggi in primo piano. Esemplare in buono stato conservativo.

      London - C. Crook, 1810. London - C. Crook, 1810 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A scarce set of thissentimental novelfrom English novelist and dramatist known for his rich earthy humour and satirical prowess, Henry Fielding. First edition thus. Featuring the original six beautifully engraved plates. Fielding began writing Amelia in the autumn of 1749. He turned to his own life for inspiration, and the main character, Amelia, was possibly modelled on Fielding's first wife, Charlotte, who died in November 1744. Likewise, the hero, Captain Booth, was partly modelled after Fielding himself. It contains many allusions to classical literature and focuses on the theme of marriage and feminine intelligence. John Cleland was one of the first reviewers of the novel, and in the December 1751 Monthly Review, claimed the work as the boldest stroke that has yet been attempted in this species of writing and that Fielding takes up his heroine at the very point at which all his predecessors have dropped their capital personages. Complete in three volumes. Condition: Rebacked in calf bindings with gilt lettering to the spines. Externally, light rubbing, and wear to extremities. Internally, all volumes are firmly bound, and bright. Generally clean, with the odd spot and handling mark. Overall: VERY GOOD..

      London - T. Bensley, 1810. London - T. Bensley, 1810 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An early nineteenth-century copy of Virgil's Bucolica, illustrated with plates. Featuring 24 illustrated plates to the rear of 'plants referred to in the Eclogues'. With the armorial bookplate of Lord Battersea to the front pastedown. The Eclogues, also called the Bucolics, is the first of the three major works of the Latin poet Virgil. Taking as his generic model the Greek Bucolica ('on care of cattle', so named from the poetry's rustic subjects) by Theocritus, Virgil created a Roman version partly by offering a dramatic and mythic interpretation of revolutionary change at Rome in the turbulent period between roughly 44 and 38 BC. Virgil introduced political clamor largely absent from Theocritus' poems, called idylls ('little scenes' or 'vignettes'), even though erotic turbulence disturbs the 'idyllic' landscapes of Theocritus. Condition: In a half calf binding with marbled boards. Externally, generally smart, lightly rubbed in places. Some slight marking to the leather. Internally, firmly bound. Some foxing to the endpapers but otherwise very clean throughout. Overall: VERY GOOD..

        The Man of the World

      London - Thomas Tegg, 1810. London - Thomas Tegg, 1810 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A nice little copy of Mackenzie's Man of the World. Part of 'Tegg's Miniature Novelists', edited by Miss Burney. With a frontispiece and vignette title. Henry Mackenzie (August, 1745 - 14 January 1831) was a Scottish novelist and miscellaneous writer. He was also known by the sobriquet Addison of the North. Mackenzie had attempted to interest publishers in what would become his first and most famous work, The Man of Feeling, for several years, but they would not even accept it as a gift. Finally, Mackenzie published it anonymously in 1771, and it became instantly successful. The Man of Feeling is a weak creature, dominated by a futile benevolence, who goes up to London and falls into the hands of people who exploit his innocence. In 1773 Mackenzie published a second novel, The Man of the World, the hero of which was as consistently bad as the Man of Feeling. Condition: In a full tree calf binding. Externally rubbed, the front joint starting. Internally, firmly bound. Clean and slightly age-toned. Off-setting to the frontispiece, vignette title and title. Ink signature to front free-endpaper.

Intended for her family only, it was printed by a descendant, Julius Hutchinson, in 1806, and cleared away many false impressions about the narrowness and austerity of the educated Puritans. With previous owner's bookplate to both front pastedowns of one Catharine M. Mellish, and further labels of Peter Laslett of Trinity College, Cambridge. Condition: In a calf binding with marbled paper covered boards. Externally, generally sound with rubbing and bumping to extremities. Front joint of volume II tender and rear joint slightly cracked. Internally, firmly bound. Generally bright and clean except for offsetting caused by plates. Overall: VERY GOOD.

        The Works of Allan Ramsay;

      Edinburgh - Oliver & Co., 1810. Edinburgh - Oliver & Co., 1810 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A very scarce little set of the collected works of Allan Ramsay. Ramsay (1686 1758) was a Scottish poet (or makar), playwright, publisher, librarian and wig-maker. Ramsay's importance in literary history is twofold. As a pastoral writer (in some respects the best in the world, according to James Henry Leigh Hunt) he contributed, at an early stage, to the naturalistic reaction of the 18th century. His chief place is, however, as an editor. He is the connecting-link between the greater Makars of the 15th and 16th centuries, and Robert Fergusson and Robert Burns. The volumes contain all of his major works including The Gentle Shepherd, notable for its directness of impression and its appreciation of country life. With a lovely engraved frontispiece of the author to the first volume. Complete in three volumes. First edition thus. Condition: Uniformly bound in full tree calf. Externally, generally smart with some bumping and minor wear to extremities. Slight loss to backstrip of volume I. Internally, firmly bound. Pages bright and clean with a few handling marks here and there and some very light browning and spottingto first and last few pages only. Overall: VERY GOOD..

        Die Flucht der Pferde, 1810

      1810. Aquarell und Feder auf Papier, unten rechts monogrammiert und datiert: "R W inv den 20 Nov 1810", 12,2 x 19,2 cm. Seine erste Ausbildung erhielt Raphael Winter durch den Stiefvater Johann Michael Mettenleiter. Dieser war 1790 zum kurfürstlichen Jagd- und Hofkupferstecher ernannt worden und führte damit das Amt und die Geschäfte des Vaters von Winter weiter. Raphael selbst wurde 1809 zum ersten Lithographen an der lithographischen Anstalt des königlichen Staatsrates ernannt. 1818 weilte er in Rom, um für Johann von Dall'Armi eine Steindruckerei zu errichten. 1830 hielt er sich erneut in Italien auf. Wie schon sein Vater Joseph Georg Winter, der 1789 verstarb, widmete sich auch Raphael hauptsächlich der Darstellung von Tieren, sowohl in der Zeichnung und im Aquarell, als auch in der Druckgraphik. Seine lithographierten Tierblätter gehören zu den Pioniertaten in diesem Medium. Die Thematik des vorliegenden Blattes findet sich im Oeuvre des Vaters und des Sohnes immer wieder, wenn auch die Hatz der Wölfe häufig auf Hirsche konzentriert ist. Hier jagen sie eine Gruppe von drei Pferden. Ein Wolf hat das zurückgebliebene Pferd bereits an der Kehle erwischt, ein anderer Wolf wird von dem Pferd mit den Hufen zurückgeschlagen. Die Dramatik der Szene schildert Raphael Winter in kühlen und nüchternen Farben und schafft damit einen Kontrast zu dem eigentlichen Geschehen. In der zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts wird diese Darstellung besonders durch polnische Maler wie Alfred von Wierusz-Kowalski wieder populär.

        A Picturesque Voyage to India by way of China

      London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, and Orme, 1810. London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, and Orme, 1810. First edition. In a modern, quarter-leather binding with five raised bands. Printed title page followed by two page introduction then 50 hand-colored plates on linen guards, each with an accompanying page of text (watermarked "JWhatman 1808"), complete. Several of the linen guards are professionally reinforced with a fully reversible, archival adhesive. The occasional spot of foxing in the margins, but on the whole an excellent copy of this important early view of China and India. & & This collection of 50 Aquatints focuses on views of the Far East, by William Daniell and his uncle Thomas. The Daniells were considered masters of the Aquatint process, a printmaking technique in which an artist makes marks to a copper or zinc plate that then holds ink. Before "A Picturesque Voyage" had been released, William and Thomas had already issued numerous other scenes of India and the Orient, which became extremely popular as the Daniells were some of the first westerners to print views of the area and they excelled at depicting exotic locales in the otherwise familiar trappings of the English landscape medium. After "A Picturesque Voyage," the younger William would go on to produce "A Voyage Round Great Britain," considered one of the classic works of English print collections of the period. Their work has been praised as "... scenes of India that were at once most alien and most singular." (Indian Renaissance: British Romantic Art and The Prospect of India).

Watts, Broxbourn, Herts: and sold by Longman, Hurst, Rees and Orme, London, 1810. 8vo, approximately 230 x 140 mm, 9 x 5½ inches, engraved portrait frontispiece of the author by W. Bond after J. Northcote, R.A., pages (2), viii, (16), 320; (2), 418, (2) - adverts, complete with half-titles, bound in the original blue paper boards, spines amateurishly rebacked at some time in buff paper and crudely hand-lettered in ink. Spines darkened and slightly chipped at head and tail, covers lightly spotted, corners slighly worn, armorial bookplate on front pastedowns, portrait lightly foxed in margins, offset onto title page, title page in Volume I reinserted, light brown spotting and light staining to margins throughout, very occasionally affecting text, but in no way obscuring it, 2 lower corners torn off, no loss of text, small closed tear to 3 margins, 2 leaves in Volume II chipped and worn at fore-edges, not affecting text. A good working copy. Abu Taleb Khan (1752-1806) was born in Lucknow after his father, a Turk born in Isfahan, had fled the tyranny of Nadir Shah of Persia and taken refuge in India. After problems with his employment in Calcutta, Abu Taleb is encouraged by an English friend to accompany him on a trip to England. This he does setting off in 1799, stopping off at the Cape of Good Hope on the way and landing first at Cork and taking lodgings in Dublin. Next he settles in London and in 12 chapters describes at length the city, England, the English and their character, manners and customs, government, system of justice, recreations, entertainments, finances (deploring the National Debt), science and the arts, he also relates the rise of Napoleon and Nelson' s successes. He has many aristocratic friends who offer him hospitality as a "Persian Prince", he attends the Lord Mayor's Feast, and is presented at court to George III and Queen Charlotte. In 1803 Abu Taleb returns to India spending some time in Paris and Lyon, describing both and disparaging French cuisine. He goes by ship from Marseilles to Genoa and then to Livorno where he narrowly escapes assassination. Finally he reaches Turkey via Malta, and is received graciously by the Britiah Ambassador in Constantinople. The last 6 chapters recount his overland journey from Turkey, through Iraq visiting many towns including Baghdad and making pilgrimages to the Shia shrines at Kerbela and Nejif. Finally he takes a ship from Basra down the Persian Gulf to Bombay where he is received by the Governor who arranges his passage to Bengal. On this prolonged journey home he still describes in some detail the manners and customs of people he meets, the towns and cities he visits, his voyages by river and sea, often enlivened by anecdotes or brief histories such as that of the Wahhabis. Cox, Travel, Volume III, page 108: "He was amazed and delighted with Ireland, and no less pleased with the 10,000 oriental MSS at the Bodleian. The curiosities at the British Museum received careful attention as well. He notes with disapproval the fact that in London prostitutes lived on streets with such virtuous names as Providence Street, Modest Court... He greatly admired England's progress in manufactures."
