        Bewaffneter Tiroler. Aquarell.

      ca. 1810 - 13 x 11, 5 cm, 25 x 22 cm, Passepartout m. blattvergoldeten Rahmen., Tadell. Johann Georg Schaedler (1777-1866) , Halbwaise ab dem siebten Lebensjahr, ging in die Lehre bei Maler Herrmann in Konstanz. Dieser machte ihn bekannt mit dem Kunsthändler Bleuler in Schaffhausen, für den er Kupferstiche in Aberlischer Manier herstellte. Als Geselle war er sechs Jahre lang für den Landschaftsmaler Johann Caspar Huber in Zürich tätig. Nach Einfall der Franzosen in die Schweiz 1798/99 flüchtete er nach Konstanz, kurze Zeit später übersiedelte er dann nach Augsburg und vollendete seine Studien an der Akademie der bildenden Künste in Wien. Ab 1804 lebte er in Innsbruck, wo er als Maler und Radierer tätig war und den Tiroler Volksaufstand miterlebte. Zudem war er Besitzer des Katzung'schen Kaffeehauses. Er wurde insbesondere mit seinen Ansichten, Trachtenbildern und Porträts bekannt, wobei er den Tiroler Freiheitshelden Andreas Hofer als Motiv besonders bevorzugte. - Der Tiroler Volksaufstand war ein Aufstand der Tiroler Bevölkerung gegen die bayerische Besatzung vor dem Hintergrund des Fünften Koalitionskrieges im Jahre 1809. Unter der maßgeblichen Führung Andreas Hofers wurde das Land im Frühjahr 1809 von der bayerisch-französischen Besatzung befreit und bis zum Herbst verteidigt. Erst im November und Dezember 1809 konnten die alliierten Truppen das Land erneut besetzen und ihre Herrschaft wieder festigen.

      London: Printed for T. Payne, 1810. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. Early 19th Century Libretti Based on Greek Tragedies,The Artful Painted Scene by the Dover Painter, ca. 1930. 194 x 124 mm (7 5/8 x 4 7/8"). 2 p.l., lxxxvii, [i], 188 pp. FIRST EDITION. Harmless contemporary purple straight-grain morocco, covers with gilt fillet border, raised bands flanked by plain gilt rules, gilt titling, all edges gilt. WITH AN EXCELLENT LATER FORE-EDGE PAINTING OF THE ACROPOLIS. Joints somewhat rubbed and flaked, boards a little stained and rather faded, rear board with two small abraded patches, otherwise an excellent copy, clean and fresh internally, in a solid, inoffensive binding, and with a vividly colored painting in fine condition. These two librettos are based on Euripides' tragedies "Medea" and "Alcestis." "Cornelia" transports the story of Medea's revenge on her faithless husband to Roman Britain, while Alcestis' story of self-sacrifice and redemption retains its original setting and cast of characters. The fore-edge painting salutes the classical origins of the operas with a striking depiction of the Acropolis, rising majestically on its hill, surrounded by open countryside with blue mountains in the distance. The foreground is populated by two tourists, sitting on a rock admiring the view, and four brightly dressed Greek peasants. Our view shows a sophisticated sense of design as well as a delicacy of painterly strokes, and the whole scene looks very convincing. The intricate gradations in the shading, seen especially in the fields and sky, are remarkable, and the highly skilled use of shadows establishes a strong sense of three-dimensionality. There is a great deal to see in terms of activity, landscape, and architecture, and all of it is painted in careful, convincing detail. It is easy to recognize the work of the so-called "Dover Painter," as it shows his distinctive style of applying small dabs of paint; this method is especially effective in producing convincing texture for skies, trees, shrubs, and grass. "Dover Painter" is the name given by Jeff Weber to the person who painted in the 1920s and '30s, probably for the famous London bookseller Marks & Company. British writer James Mason (1778/9-1827) wrote political pamphlets advocating parliamentary reform and Catholic emancipation, as well as several plays, an epistolary novel, and translations from the classics.

        Landschaft in der sächsischen Schweiz mit mythologischer Szene (Die Jägerin Migul auf dem Felsensitz am Strome Lubar)., Radierung.

      Um 1810. - In der Platte signiert, betitelt, bezeichnet mit "Dresden" und mit Widmung an Friedrich August von Sachsen. Links unten mit Vers aus dem Caledonischen Bardenlied Ossians. Tiefschwarzer, prägnanter Druck auf festem Velin mit Rand. Chr. A. Günther studiert an der Dresdener Akademie bei Adrian Zingg und ist später als Maler, Zeichner und Kupferstecher, vielfach nach eigenen Vorlagen, tätig. Die Motive für sein Schaffen findet er fast ausschließlich in der sächsischen Heimat, besonders in der Umgebung Dresdens und der Sächsischen Schweiz (Pillnitz und Lohmen). Hierher verortet er vermutlich auch die mythologische Szene, die von Ossians Dichtung inspiriert ist und dessen Text unterhalb der Darstellung abgedruckt ist: "Die Jägerin sitzt auf dem Felsen. Donner erschallet neben den Hügeln. Lubar toset schäumend dahin. Zitterndes Mächen wie sollst du den Strom überschreiten in deine Heimath? Athos sah seine Schwester sich nähern. Er kannte den Platz, wo zwei Klippen sich über den Strom bogen. Eine betagte Eiche breitete ihren Arm darüber hin." - Guter Gesamteindruck. Durchgehend schwach stockfleckig. Im Rand partiell wasserrandig, ein minimaler Einriss am Unterrand. Sprache: de Gewicht in Gramm: 2100

Rebacked with new end papers. Boards a little scuffed but very securely bound. & Usually called Troughton's History of Liverpool and ascribed to Thomas Troughton, who was the first publisher. & Compiled by John Corry and George Perry and originally published serially by Troughton who had to stop publication because it did not pay. He never printed a t.p. or list of plates. When Robinson bought the copyright, he printed a t.p. and list of contents with his own name as publisher on the t.p., and bound into volumes the unsold parts which he took over from Troughton. Robinson also added a few plates to his issue. A map of the town accompanied Robinson's issue, but it was large, and intended for framing, and therefore not convenient for binding in the volume. Consequently few copies exist with it in although this volume contains a smaller version but lacks the map of the adjacent country mentioned on t.p.& Illustrated plates not included in pagination. Contents lightly tanned with some sporadic light foxing. Page 85 lacking top corner, not affecting text. Evidence of bookworm (no longer present) but this does not detract from the attractiveness of the book as a whole. Overall this is a very clean, sound, collectable copy of this book.

Two folding maps, the first depicting the position of French and English ships in the Basque Roads, April 12th 1809, with an overlay, the second a chart produced in court by Lord Cochrane. Contemporary calf-backed boards, gilt, expertly rebacked and recornered. Lightly rubbed to extremities, occasional marginal chipping. James Gambier, 1st Baron Gambier, Admiral of the Royal Navy. Securing distinction during the battles with the French navy on the Glorious First in 1794, Gambier gained notoriety following the political fallout ensuing from the largely successful Battle of the Basque Roads (1809). In command of the Channel Fleet, Gambier instructed Lord Cochrane to harry the French fleet with fire ships, causing a number of the enemy ships to run aground in trying to escape. His caution was interpreted as a failure to press home the British advantage by Lord Cochrane. This court-martial - arranged at Gambier's request - examined the battle and the opposing theories of Gambier and Cochrane. It totally exonerated him - isntead forcing Cochrane from active service.

"Brigadier General John Winslow accused Captain Joseph Loring Jr. of permitting his men to mutiny by failing to enforce a brigade order to appear on parade in protest of a change in Winslow's rank and command. In 1805 a division court martial acquitted Loring, but Major General Simon Elliot, after asking for a reconsideration of the decision, refused to accept the acquittal and dissolved the court. A second division court martial convened in 1806 found Loring guilty, and ordered him removed and disqualified for military service for three years. In 1807 Loring petitioned the Massachusetts General Court to ask that the decision be invalidated, arguing that it had not been regularly detailed and thus had denied him an impartial trial. The General Court overturned the 1806 decision and ordered Loring reinstated to his former rank and command" (Cohen). This was the first volume of The Militia Reporter. No other volumes were published. Cohen, Bibliography of Early American Law 13473, note to 13551.

Texto a modo de discurso en el que el autor plantea una visita económica y política a su país, para poder proponer medidas de mejoras sociales y económicas que puedan llevar a la independencia de Chile.

In 1800 George Dance junior, the City's Clerk of the Works, commissioned William Daniell (1769-1837) to paint in oils and make an official aquatint for his grandiose scheme for improving the Port of London.

      St. Helena: Printed for S. Solomon by J. Coupland, 1810.. [4],80pp. Half calf and marbled boards. A bit of light foxing. One page printed askew and trimmed close, affecting a few letters of text. Very good. One of the first St. Helena imprints, and a very significant tract, addressing the issue of the harm that could be caused to a local ecosystem by the introduction of a foreign predator, in this instance - goats. According to McMurtrie, printing was established on the remote South Atlantic island of St. Helena in 1806, and a newspaper appeared in 1807. No book publication is recorded until 1810, with an abstract of the laws usually being regarded as the island's first publication. The present treatise was printed the same year, and actually contains the text of Gov. Beatson's proposal to print the abstract of the laws and ordinances, so may precede it. The introduction of goats to St. Helena greatly changed its landscape, as they ate much of its native vegetation and caused havoc on efforts at cultivating agriculture there. A measles epidemic had wracked the population, which was also discontented by the suppression of the liquor trade by local officials, all of which led to a mutiny in 1811. The present work is attributed to Alexander Beatson, who was the British governor of St. Helena from 1808 to 1813, and who was particularly interested in fostering agriculture. It includes Beatson's essay on the "evil consequences" which have resulted from the introduction of goats to the island, as well as reports on agricultural experiments and remarks from landowners in favor of and opposed to the extermination of goats. Beatson's final remark on the subject is to encourage landowners to shoot goats at will. St. Helena is most famous as the place where Napoleon Bonaparte spent the final years of his life in captivity, until his death in 1821. During the age of sail it was frequently visited by mariners, and many other distinguished people dropped by, but it is now quite remote. OCLC lists only two copies of this work, at the Natural History Museum in London, and the British Library. Rare and important. OCLC 191967951, 504410685. Douglas McMurtrie, PRINTING PRESS AT ST. HELENA IN 1806.

The volume opens with an engraving of a classical bust of the poet, and is additionally illustrated with a plan of Olympia in Elis, both from drawings by Lee himself. Provenance: Front pastedown with armorial bookplate of Edward Everett, renowned American statesman and orator, Governor of Massachusetts (1836–39), President of Harvard University (1846–49), and Secretary of State under Millard Fillmore.
