        Ländliche Szene mit Rindern und Ziegen auf der Weide vor einem Bauernhaus. Lavierte Bisterzeichnung auf Büttenpapier.

      18 x 30 cm. An den Ecken alt auf Untersatzkarton montiert, am rechten Rand mit kleiner hinterlegter Fehlstelle. *Peter Hess wurde in Düsseldorf geboren, als Sohn des Kupferstechers Carl Ernst Christoph Hess lernte er schon früh die Kunst der Zeichnung und begann bereits mit 14 Jahren seine Ausbildung auf der Münchner Kunstakademie. Er "gehört zu jenen bahnbrechenden Künstlern, welche seinerzeit die moderne Münchener Schule begründeten, ja er ist unzweifelhaft der erste bedeutende Realist derselben ... Vorgänger hatte er dabei an W. v. Kobell, Alb. Adam und dem Thiermaler und Radirer Klein, die er indeß bald alle übertraf" (ADB 12, S. 300 ff.). In den Jahren 1813-14 begleitete er den Fürsten Carl Philipp von Wrede als Maler auf den Befreiungskriegen, in der Folge wurde Hess zu einem der besten deutschen Schlachtenmaler des frühen 19. Jahrhunderts. Vorliegend eine sehr frühe Arbeit von Hess, noch am Ende seiner Ausbildung.

He was governor of Madeira and served with Costa Cabral and Rodrigo da Fonseca on the Conselho. When the Maria da Fonte movement broke out he was named commander of the government forces in the south, but having been captured in late 1846 by the Duque de Saldanha, was deported along with his two eldest sons to Angola for the duration of the war. Travassos Valdez's oldest son, José Bento Travassos Valdez, succeeded to the title. The third Conde, José Lucio Travassos Valdez (1841-1926) had been born in Luanda.

Hisefforts in this direction failed, but he remained three years inNorth America, travelling from Quebec and Montreal to New York,South Carolina, Georgia, and Boston. His informal and highlyreadable account of his travels and observations provides muchvaluable and interesting information regarding social life,education, religion, the aboriginal population, politics,agriculture, trade, manufactures, and ship-building.

        Navigation

      England, 1813. Half Calf. Marbled Boards. . Very Good. An exceptional manuscript on the basics of scientific navigation -- navigation using trigonometry and other mathematical principles -- that is either a very fine student notebook, the draft of a proposed textbook, or perhaps both. The writing is done in a meticulous calligraphic cursive hand, and there are many illustrations, the most outstanding being the beautiful watercolor of a ship on the title page. Also special is a fold-out manuscript map of the Atlantic Coast running from Britain to Central Africa. The prose is throughout very lucid -- one can say that the clarity and elegance of the penmanship perfectly reflects how the content is expressed. Everything is explained in a non-fussy, straightforward manner that invites quicker, non-arduous comprehension, and generally the points being made are illustrated with ample examples. Indeed, it is the felicitousness of the writing that inclines us to suspect that this was intended to become a book. The last section of the book is a "Journal of a Voyage from London to Madeira and Teneriffe, In the Endeavour of London." We do not know if this is a journal of an actual trip or merely a hypothetical trip meant to illustrate all the principles and methods imparted in the text as they would be employed in real life. It probably doesn't matter. Either way, the notebook is an excellent window on the most advanced approach to navigation at the time it was written. 4to. 26 by 21 cm. Unpaginated, about 264 pp.

The Selection contains all his rare Italian and Spanish Poetry, Novels and Romances; an extraordinary Collection of Voyages and Travels,.all the old Chronicles.Splendid Books of Natural HistoryHistory?the Books will be sold by Auction by R.H. Evans?on Friday the 30th of April, and Seven Following Days

      - 3 p.l., 71, [1] pp. 8vo, attractive antique half-diced russia & marbled boards, spine gilt, outer & lower edges uncut. London: 1813. Thomas Stanley (1749-1818), "was a book-lover possessing more knowledge of the contents of his library than many of those who were his contemporaries and juniors. It is refreshing to read the notes in the catalogue of his sale; evidently written by himself, when one has become tired of seeing over and over again the stereotyped inanities of most auction-catalogues. Colonel Stanley lived at a time when Italian literature was in vogue; Don Bowle was an elder contemporary whose example led Mr. Croft and Colonel Stanley to make acquaintance with Castilian books. Many works in the languages of the two peninsulas gave a certain distinction to the small but choice library of Colonel Stanley."-Quaritch, Dictionary, p. 271. This was one of the fine libraries which came onto the market as a result of the bibliomania which was so evident at the Roxburghe sale in 1812. Stanley's library made the very large sum of 8232 pounds. 1136 lots, ruled in red and priced throughout with buyers' names. Heber was a major purchaser at this sale. The first edition of both volumes of Don Quixote made 42 pounds and was purchased by the Duke of Devonshire. Fine copy. ? Gustave Brunet, Dictionnaire de Bibliologie Catholique, cols. 584-85.

        Navigation

      England, 1813. Half Calf. Marbled Boards. . Very Good. An exceptional manuscript on the basics of scientific navigation -- navigation using trigonometry and other mathematical principles -- that is either a very fine student notebook, the draft of a proposed textbook, or perhaps both. The writing is done in a meticulous calligraphic cursive hand, and there are many illustrations, the most outstanding being the beautiful watercolor of a ship on the title page. Also special is a fold-out manuscript map of the Atlantic Coast running from Britain to Central Africa. The prose is throughout very lucid -- one can say that the clarity and elegance of the penmanship perfectly reflects how the content is expressed. Everything is explained in a non-fussy, straightforward manner that invites quicker, non-arduous comprehension, and generally the points being made are illustrated with ample examples. Indeed, it is the felicitousness of the writing that inclines us to suspect that this was intended to become a book. The last section of the book is a "Journal of a Voyage from London to Madeira and Teneriffe, In the Endeavour of London." We do not know if this is a journal of an actual trip or merely a hypothetical trip meant to illustrate all the principles and methods imparted in the text as they would be employed in real life. It probably doesn't matter. Either way, the notebook is an excellent window on the most advanced approach to navigation at the time it was written. 4to. 26 by 21 cm. Unpaginated, about 264 pp.

        Album with green felt binding and silver foil onlays and original artwork within

      Salzburg, Austria, 1813-1815. Felt. Decorated paper slipcase.. Very Good. Oblong, 9 by 14 cm. 12 leaves, a few with content on both sides, and each having an artwork of some kind. Five of these are watercolors applied directly to the paper (we would say original watercolors, although two are common images and so might well be copies), one pencil drawing, four hand-colored prints, one cut-out silhouette, and arguably the most interesting of all, embroidery into the paper, with the image thus on both sides of the paper (we are counting this as one piece). We would describe the album as a fairly typical example of a Germanic album amicorum of the period -- the Napoleonic era, or more loosely, the Biedermeier period -- with the textual entries written invariably in neat yet now inscrutable hands -- the style of cursive writing is now obscure. The original pictorial content is also of a high quality, not that that is also not fairly typical of the genre. Again, we would consider the embroidered specimen, which is of folk art-ish flowers and a hummingbird and sun, as the most unique. Other imagery is of flowers, a bucolic landscape, a funereal landscape with an urned monument at its center, as the norm. In fact, the silhouette is also a roughly similar funereal landscape. The other special aspect of this album is the green felt binding. The centerpieces are of a Roman chariots made of silver foil -- there is a slight variation to the image between the front and the rear cover, and around the perimeter of both sides is a silver foil tracery of flowers contained within a narrow band. The slipcase, which is also period, has also restrained classical decoration, in this case the center pictorial cameo is of seraphs. The slipcase is moderately soiled, and there is wear to the album itself. Minor loss to the silver foil.

        Merly Library. A Catalogue of the Well Known and Celebrated Library of the late Ralph Willett

      â€¦which will be sold by Auction, by Leigh and Sotheby on Monday, December 6, 1813, and 16 following Days… 2 p.l., 119 pp. 8vo, cont. marbled boards, finely rebacked & recornered in calf, spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. London: 1813. A fine copy of this uncommon catalogue, here printed on fine and thick paper with many outer and lower edges uncut. Willett (1719-95), after inheriting the family's West Indian estates, devoted his life to scholarship, botany, and the collecting of books and pictures. He formed a very rich library, strong in incunabula, travel, botany, topography, and architecture. His collections of incunabula and Caxtons, as well as four block books, were amongst the finest of the time. Willett published a splendid folio catalogue of his library in 1790 and it is possible that Dibdin had a hand in cataloguing some of the books for this sale catalogue. He certainly offered to look over the proofs of the early printed book descriptions and some of the notes look like his. For an account of Willett and his library, see Alan G. Thomas in The Book Collector (Winter: 1963), pp. 439-48. 2906 lots with some illuminated MSS. ? De Ricci, p. 88. Jackson 33.

        XII ????????, ???? ???????????? ? ????? ????????? ??????? ???? ?????? ?????????. [The Tale of Igor's Campaign].

      I. Baikov Skt. Peterburg 1813 - Octavo (19.5 x 11.8 cm). Title, 37 pp. Modern red sheep, date in gilt to upper cover, original wrappers bound in. Very rare and early poetic interpretation of this great piece of Ancient Rus literature; an excellent copy with original wrappers preserved. The manuscript text of the Tale of Igor's Campaign was first discovered in the library of a Yaroslavl monastery by Alexey Musin-Pushkin in 1795. This historical manuscript, with claims suggesting it dated to the 12th century, created a stir in Russian literary circles, as the tale represented the earliest Slavonic language writing, without any element of Church Slavonic. Musin-Pushkin made a transcription of the manuscript for the empress Catherine the Great in 1795 or '96 and published the text in 1800 with the help of Alexey Malinovskiy and Nikolai Bantysh-Kamenskiy. The original manuscript is thought to have burned in the great Moscow fire of 1812 during the Napoleonic occupation, together with Musin-Pushkin's entire library. Absence of the original source of the text created many disputes around its authenticity and accuracy of the Musin-Pushkin's printed version. The first attempt to interpret the Tale into the modern Russian language using verse was made in 1803, but it was this Levitskiy's version that was later chosen by N. Blanchard to serve the basis for the first French translation of the epic (Moscow, 1823). Alexander Pushkin also held a copy of this 1813 edition in his library. Very rare: we could locate only one copy at public holdings outside Russia - at the National library of Slovenia. Sopikov 8723; Modzalevskiy, Biblioteka A.S. Pushkina 210; not in SK XIX.

        Autograph Letter

      - Autograph letter from the French harpist and composer to the members of the Comité du Théâtre Feydeau, asking for access to the theater in order to be able to complete his own opera. August 12, 1813. Translated from the French, in part: "Mr. Sewrin has asked me to compose the music for a poem in three acts which you received some time ago. I am working on it with great zeal, but to succeed [.] I feel that I need to study the great masters who have illustrated the scene, so I ask for the the favor to have access [to the theater] from now on, although rehearsals for my opera will not begin for several weeks." He signs, "M. Ch. Bochsa, premier Harpiste de la musique de S. m." The opera mentioned is Bochsa's first work for the Opéra-Comique, L'héritier de Paimpol, with text by the playwright Sewrin, which premiered at the Théâtre Feydeau in December 1813. 1 p. of a bifolium, addressed on the verso. Folding creases and light toning; overall in fine condition. 7.25 x 9.5 inches (18.4 x 24 cm).Together with an autograph document announcing the new biweekly publication, L'Indicateur musical, français et étranger, edited by a M. César and available at the music shop of Bochsa's father, Charles Bochsa (d. 1821). "It announces regularly, and without requiring the submission of publications, all the musical news. This journal, so necessary to amateurs who wish to be up to date with the publication of airs, romances, overtures, etc., will be of great use, because it also contains news of each new reproduction and where it may be obtained." N.d. [June 1819]. The publication appeared twice a week from July to September 1819. 1 p. Folding creases, light toning; overall fine. 7 x 4.75 inches (18 x 12 cm).A colorful character, Nicholas-Charles Bochsa was appointed harpist to the Imperial Orchestra and began writing operas for the Opéra-Comique in 1813. However, in 1817 he became entangled in counterfeiting, fraud, and forgery, and fled to London to avoid prosecution. He was convicted in absentia, and sentenced to twelve years hard labour and a fine of 4,000 francs. Safe from French law in London, he helped found the Royal Academy of Music in 1821, and became its secretary, but when his criminal conviction was revealed in 1826 he was forced to resign, and became Musical Director of the Kings Theatre in London. In 1839 he became involved in another scandal when he ran off with the opera singer Anna Bishop, wife of the composer Henry Bishop. They performed together in North America and throughout Europe (except France). Bochsa arrived with Anna Bishop in Sydney, Australia, at the time of the gold rush in December 1855, but they gave only one concert together before Bochsa died. Bishop and Bochsa were said to have been the inspiration for Trilby and Svengali in George du Maurier's 1894 novel Trilby.

It was a dynasty which lasted well into the 19th century.

      History…the Books will be sold by Auction by R.H.

Thomas Stanley (1749-1818), "was a book-lover possessing more knowledge of the contents of his library than many of those who were his contemporaries and juniors. It is refreshing to read the notes in the catalogue of his sale; evidently written by himself, when one has become tired of seeing over and over again the stereotyped inanities of most auction-catalogues. Colonel Stanley lived at a time when Italian literature was in vogue; Don Bowle was an elder contemporary whose example led Mr. Croft and Colonel Stanley to make acquaintance with Castilian books. Many works in the languages of the two peninsulas gave a certain distinction to the small but choice library of Colonel Stanley."-Quaritch, Dictionary, p. 271. This was one of the fine libraries which came onto the market as a result of the bibliomania which was so evident at the Roxburghe sale in 1812. Stanley's library made the very large sum of 8232 pounds. 1136 lots, ruled in red and priced throughout with buyers' names. Heber was a major purchaser at this sale. The first edition of both volumes of Don Quixote made 42 pounds and was purchased by the Duke of Devonshire. Fine copy. ? Gustave Brunet, Dictionnaire de Bibliologie Catholique, cols. 584-85.

"Southey constructed an early-nineteenth century hero as a model for the young ? in his words, a 'patriotic manual'. He told a friend that he would write 'such a life of Nelson as shall be put into the hands of every youth destined for the Navy'" (Knight, The Pursuit of Victory, p.542), as it most assuredly was, coming to dominate the Nelson biography market, and remaining perpetually in print. An attractive set of Southey's elegant biography, in a handsome contemporary binding decorated with pleasing naval tools.

        Diario Ecclesiastico para o Reino de Portugal Principalmente para a Cidade de Lisboa, para o Anno de 1813

      Lisbon, 1813. 32mo. (157)pp., + folding map. An elegant embroidered hand-calendar, giving Feast Days, a Court Calendar, phases of the moon, eclipses, lists of kings, bishops, cardinals, and more. Includes the lineage of the Royal Family.

Both front and back covers are bordered with open floral interlace. In the center of the front is the coat of arms of the Portuguese royal family, surmounted by a crown. On the back is a diminutive scene showing the Tower of Belém. The Tower, still standing today, played an important role in the Age of Discoveries and is a shining example of Manueline architecture in Lisbon. Behind the tower, a flock of birds flies above a three-masted ship. The spine is decorated with a sequinned interlace. Marbled endpapers, and yellow ribbon bookmark attached. Housed in a gilt-decorated leather pull-off case, with the royal coat of arms of the United Kingdom and another crest showing two crossed trumpets, wreathed and surmounted with a lyre. Lower edge of upper part of the case is slightly worn and turned up on itself, one loose thread on spine, and slight fraying to edges. A.e.g. An about fine copy of this rare Portuguese almanac.
