        Rußland wie es wirklich ist! Der 17. Jahrestag der Polnischen Revolution. Eine Rede gesprochen in der zu Paris am 29. November 1847 zur Feier dieses Jahrestags gehaltenen Versammlung. Von M. Bakunin, russischem Flüchtling. Ins Deutsche übertragen.

      19,5 x 12,5 cm. 16 Seiten. Flugschrift mit Rückenheftstreifen. *Stammhammer I, 19: Nettlau, S. 42. - Erste Ausgabe, sehr selten. - Michail Alexandrowitsch Bakunin, (1814-1876) war ein russischer Revolutionär und Anarchist. Er gilt als einer der einflussreichsten Denker, Aktivisten und Organisatoren der anarchistischen Bewegung. Ursprünglich entstammte Bakunin einer alten russischen Adelsfamilie, er entzog sich jedoch dem Leben und dem Militär in Russischen Diensten und schlug sich als Mathematiklehrer durch. 1840 kam er nach Berlin und lernte die großen Denker und Philosophen des Vormärz kennen und engagierte sich für den Sozialismus. Nach dem Ausbruch der Februarrevolution 1848 in Frankreich kehrte Bakunin nach Paris zurück und nahm am revolutionären Kampf teil. Als Mitorganisator der Aufstände im Mai 1849 in Dresden wurde er schließlich verhaftet, mehrfach zum Tode verurteilt und schließlich nach Rußland ausgeliefert, wo er zunächst zu lebenslanger Kerkerhaft und 1857 zu lebenslanger Verbannung nach Sibirien verurteilt wurde. Dort gelang ihm 1861 aber die Flucht und er kehrte über Japan und Amerika nach Europa zurück, wo er in England, Schweden und schließlich in der Schweiz weiterhin politisch tätig war. - Leicht gebräunt (Titelblatt stärker), insgesamt gut erhalten.

        Sir Roger De Coverley

      1814 - STEELE, Richard and ADDISON, Joseph. Sir Roger De Coverley. Reprinted from The Spectator. London: Sampson Low, circa 1900. Square 12mo, contemporary full burgundy morocco, elaborately gilt-decorated spine and covers, multi-color inlaid morocco cover illustration of Sir Roger de Coverley, raised bands, all edges gilt. $2200.Later edition of one of the leading series by two of the most famous 18th-century British periodical essayists, with illustrations by Chas. O. Murray, beautifully bound in a morocco-gilt Kelliegram binding with a detailed multi-color morocco cover inlay of Sir Roger De Coverley."The periodical essay". reached its acme of achievement early in the 18th century in the work of Richard Steele and Joseph Addison." Together, The Guardian, The Spectator and The Tatler "helped to form the taste and to shape the morals and manners of countless generations in Britain and abroad" (John Calhoun Stephens). Sir Roger de Coverley was one of Steele and Addison's most noteworthy achievements. Created in The Spectator in 1711 by the writing team, Sir Roger de Coverley was said to be an English squire of Queen Anne's reign. His name was immediately familiar to readers as it was also the name of a well-known English/Scottish country dance. The writers explained the coincidence by making de Coverley the great-grandson of the dance's inventor. Sir Roger was intended to embody the values and display the mannerisms of an old country gentleman, which allowed his Tory politics to be portrayed as silly and outdated while the character himself remained beloved by the public. He swiftly became one of Steele and Addison's most popular creations. With original covers bound in at rear. A few spots of foxing to text, crease to front free endpaper, expert repair to front joint. A near-fine copy, beautifully bound. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Broadside Taufschein, begins: "Staat [blank] Nordamerica. Gehet hin in alle welt lehret alle volker und taufet sieim namen des vaters des sohnes und des heiligren geistes." With manuscript completed by an anonymous scrivener.

      [Reading, PA: C. F. Egelmann Folio (34.8 x 25.7 cm; 13.75" x 10"). [1] p.. 1814 and later] The engraver Egelmann (1782–1860) is credited by Stopp with producing => the first engraved Taufschein (birth/baptismal certificate), an example of which is offered here. The certificate is for Louisa Buehler, daughter of L. Buehler and Salomea Wagner, born 25 January 1849 in Tamaqua, Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania. The cataloguer at the Penn State University library describes its uncolored example: "The form is generally dated ca. 1830, but could have been in use as early as 1814. The lower design depicts Jesus with the disciples, while the upper scene shows Jesus' baptism. The form stretches between two pillars, flanked by columns of smoke, all within line border. Distinctive mix of [stipple] engraving and etching, probably on copper plate, by Egelmann." => The present copy is handsomely hand-colored with the entirety of the baptismal certificate written out, not "filled in," in red ink in a clear hand. That is, the "form" part of the engraving has been neatly, precisely excised and replaced with fresh paper to record Louisa's baptism. Gently age-toned, small amount of spotting to lower right corner, a bit of waterstaining to upper right corner. Excellent repair to a few tears around the margins, plate expertly altered/repurposed within the manuscript portion as described above.

        History of the Expedition Under the Command of Captains Lewis and Clark, to the Sources of the Missouri, Thence Across the Rocky Mountains and Down the River Columbia to the Pacific Ocean. Performed During the Years 1804-5-6

      J. Maxwell for Bradford & Inskeep and Abm. H. Inskeep of New York, Philadelphia 1814 - Five maps and charts. Large folding map in expert facsimile. Usual foxing and browning. Contemporary sheep, expertly rebacked to style, flat spine divided with gilt rules, red morocco lettering piece Provenance: Charles N. Clark (booklabel) The first edition of the "definitive account of the most important exploration of the North American continent" (Wagner-Camp). A cornerstone of Western Americana. The book describes the Government-backed expedition to explore the newly acquired Louisiana Purchase undertaken from 1804 to 1806 by ascending the Missouri to its source, crossing the Rocky Mountains, and reaching the Pacific Ocean. In total, the expedition covered some eight thousand miles in slightly more than twenty-eight months. Lewis and Clark brought back the first reliable information about much of the area they traversed, made contact with the Indian inhabitants as a prelude to the expansion of the fur trade, and advanced by a quantum leap the geographical knowledge of the continent. This official account of the expedition is as much a landmark in Americana as the trip itself. The narrative has been reprinted many times and remains a perennial American bestseller. The observations in the text make it an essential work of American natural history, ethnography and science. It is the first great U.S. government expedition, the first book on the Rocky Mountain West, and a host of other firsts. It is among the most famous American books.

        Here Begyneth a Littel Tome and Hathe to Name The Lincolne Nosegay: beynge a Brefe Table of Certaine Bokes in the Posession of Maister Thomas Frognall Dibdin Clerk. Which Bookes be to be sold to Him who shal gyve the moste for ye Same

      - 16 pp. 8vo, a wonderful cont. binding by George Mullen of Dublin (with his ticket) of cream-colored straight-grained morocco (spine very slightly darkened), richly gilt & blind-tooled, around sides gilt roll borders in a "Gothic" design, flanked by quadruple gilt fillets, central panels decorated in blind, in center of each cover a large lozenge-shaped arabesque blind stamp, inner arabesque cornerpieces; inside borders gilt, doublures & endleaves of blue watered silk, framed by blind ornamental borders, spine with four raised bands & richly gilt, second compartment with title lettered in gilt, a.e.g. [London: printed by W. Bulmer, [1814].]. First edition, limited to 36 copies only; one of the great Dibdin rarities, here bound, ca. 1816, in one of the masterpieces by George Mullen of Dublin, Ireland's finest binder of the period, with his ticket. In this work we find Dibdin in the guise of bookseller. In October 1814 Dibdin managed to purchase for 500 guineas from the Dean and Chapter of Lincoln Cathedral six volumes containing 19 titles, mostly black-letter rarities, including four Caxtons. Within a month, Dibdin produced the present catalogue. "The well-turned archness of the title and the enthusiasm of the descriptions, the use of the best printer in England and the small limitation, the quality and the rarity of the books?and the standing in the book world of the celebrated author of Bibliomania, were carefully chosen ingredients which made The Lincolne Nosegay the most exclusive bookseller's catalogue ever issued. It may perhaps be more aptly termed a private auction catalogue, for it is unpriced, but the distinction is not important. More important is the limitation of edition as the measure of Dibdin's influenceable circle of friends and maximum targeted sales audience: thirty-one in the Roxburghe Club, including himself, and five spare copies?It is therefore not surprising that the Nosegay became a highly-prized collector's bijou - a joy to possess and a frustration not to possess?The Nosegay has remained a rare and attractive relic of its age."-Rabaiotti, "Beckford's A Dialogue in the Shades and Dibdin's The Lincolne Nosegay" in The Book Collector, Summer 1989, pp. 212-13. Provenance: This copy was given or sold by Dibdin to the Rev. Daniel McNeille, rector of Hackestowne in Ireland; on the upper portion of a front flyleaf Dibdin has written: "Price stitched 3s/6d. Only 36 Copies printed. T.F.D." This copy was bought at the sale of McNeille's "valuable" library in Dublin in July 1816 (clipping regarding the sale from the Dublin Journal of 20 July 1816 mounted on an endpaper) by William Shaw Mason (1774-1853), author of A Statistical Account or Parochial Survey of Ireland. On the flyleaf, underneath Dibdin's note, the auctioneer, Richard Edward Mercier, has recorded that Dibdin himself had given him an unsuccessful commission for this book: "?I had a Commission from Mr. Dibdin to purchase for him this Literary Bijoux, which he was very anxious to repossess." Mason, who probably asked Mercier to write this note, had it bound by Mullen, the outstanding Irish binder of the period, and presented it to Earl Whitworth of Abaston (1795-1825), Lord Lieutenant of Ireland from 1813 to 1817. On another flyleaf, there is a dedication in Mason's hand: "His Excellency Charles Earl Whitworth, Lord Lieutenant of Ireland &c., whose kind Condecension has so especially promoted the progress of the Statistical Survey." With the bookplate of George John, Eighth Earl of De La Warr (1791-1869) on the front doublure. From the library of Bernard H. Breslauer (his sale, Christie's NY, 21 March 2005, lot 83). The binding was exhibited, and reproduced in the exhibition's catalogue, at the Houghton Library in 1991. Fine copy preserved in a box. ? Jackson 34. Windle & Pippin A 24a.

        Consideration of Various Points of Analysis.from the Philosophical Transactions

      - Several diagrams in the text. 1 p.l., 33 (i.e. 29) pp. Large 4to, orig. blue wrappers, uncut. London: W. Bulmer, 1814. First separate edition, with new pagination. This offprint belonged to Carl Friedrich Gauss, with the "Gauss-Bibliothek" stamp on the title. This copy was no doubt sent by Herschel to Europe's leading mathematician. The present work is an important contribution to mathematical notation by Herschel, who was, with Charles Babbage and George Peacock, a founder of the famous Analytical Society, a group of Cambridge mathematical reformers. They wanted to leave behind the fluxional, Newtonian notation so prevalent in 18th-century Britain and embrace the algebraically based conception of the calculus developed by Lagrange. In this work, Herschel professes "his belief in the fruitfulness of the method of separating the symbols of operation from those of quantity."-S.E. Despeaux, "Very Full of Symbols" in Episodes in the History of Modern Algebra (1800-1950), (2007), ed. by J.J. Gray & K.H. Parshall, p. 54. Fine copy and rare.

        Miscellaneous Works

      1814 - GIBBON, Edward. Miscellaneous Works of Edward Gibbon, Esq. With Memoirs of his Life and Writings, Composed by Himself: Illustrated from his Letters, with Occasional Notes and Narrative by John Lord Sheffield. London: John Murray, 1814. Five volumes. Octavo, contemporary full brown calf gilt, raised bands, marbled endpapers and edges. $1500.Second edition of Gibbon's miscellaneous works, greatly expanded from the first, with engraved frontispiece portrait, four engraved plates and folding genealogical chart, handsomely bound.After Gibbon's death in 1794, his closest friend, Lord Sheffield, collected and published these letters, notes, diaries, fragments, essays and autobiography, carefully editing them so that his late friend would not be exposed to uncomplimentary public scrutiny. In his preface, Lord Sheffield wrote, "Few men, I believe, have ever so fully unveiled their own character, by a minute narrative of their sentiments and pursuits, as Mr. Gibbon". not with study and labour"" not with an affected frankness"" but with a genuine confession of his little foibles and peculiarities, and a good-humoured and natural display of his own conduct and opinions." Lord Sheffield forbade in his will the publication of any additional papers. The first edition was published in two quarto volumes in 1796. "About 1807 Lord Sheffield began to work on a second edition". It is not clear why another seven years elapsed before the second edition was published". [Though projected to run six volumes,] there were in fact five octavo volumes, containing the old and the new matter rearranged"""as here"""and one quarto volume containing the new matter separately [thus the first edition's publication dates are often cited as 1796-1815]". The five volumes, though dated 1814 on the titles, were not actually issued until early in 1815" (Norton, 192-5). Norton, 200. Lowndes, 886. Armorial bookplates.Scattered light foxing, light expert restoration to handsome calf bindings. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Consideration of Various Points of Analysis...from the Philosophical Transactions

      Several diagrams in the text. 1 p.l., 33 (i.e. 29) pp. Large 4to, orig. blue wrappers, uncut. London: W. Bulmer, 1814. First separate edition, with new pagination. This offprint belonged to Carl Friedrich Gauss, with the "Gauss-Bibliothek" stamp on the title. This copy was no doubt sent by Herschel to Europe's leading mathematician. The present work is an important contribution to mathematical notation by Herschel, who was, with Charles Babbage and George Peacock, a founder of the famous Analytical Society, a group of Cambridge mathematical reformers. They wanted to leave behind the fluxional, Newtonian notation so prevalent in 18th-century Britain and embrace the algebraically based conception of the calculus developed by Lagrange. In this work, Herschel professes "his belief in the fruitfulness of the method of separating the symbols of operation from those of quantity."-S.E. Despeaux, "Very Full of Symbols" in Episodes in the History of Modern Algebra (1800-1950), (2007), ed. by J.J. Gray & K.H. Parshall, p. 54. Fine copy and rare. With the stamp of the Royal Observatory at Göttingen on upper wrapper (with release stamp on front paste-down endpaper) and title.

        Travels to the Source of the Missouri River and Across the American Continent to the Pacific Ocean. performed by order of the Government of the United States, in the years 1804, 1805, and 1806. By Captains Lewis and Clarke [sic]. Published from the official report

      London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme and Brown, 1814. Quarto. (10 1/2 x 8 3/8 inches). 1p. publisher's advertisement at end. 1 folding engraved map by Neele, five engraved plans on 3 plates. (Without the half-title). Contemporary calf-backed marbled paper-covered boards, the flat spine divided into five compartments by double gilt fillets, dark blue morocco lettering-piece to second compartment, endpaper renewed.The first British edition of the great landmark of western exploration.First British and first quarto edition of the "definitive account of the most important exploration of the North American continent" (Wagner-Camp). The book describes the U.S. government-backed expedition to explore the newly-acquired Louisiana Purchase undertaken from 1804 to 1806 by ascending the Missouri to its source, crossing the Rocky Mountains, and reaching the Pacific Ocean. In total, the expedition covered some eight thousand miles in slightly more than twenty-eight months. They brought back the first reliable information about much of the area they traversed, made contact with the Indian inhabitants as a prelude to the expansion of the fur trade, and advanced by a quantum leap the geographical knowledge of the continent.The narrative was first published in Philadelphia in two octavo volumes in the same year as the present edition. The large folding map of the West (by Neele after the Philadelphia edition map) recalls an extraordinary feat of cartography, accurately revealing much of the trans-Mississippi for the first time. Wheat notes that the map is almost identical to the Philadelphia version "except for a few minor variations." The observations in the text make it an essential work of American natural history, ethnography, and science, and it forms a worthy record of the first great U.S. government expedition. In terms of typography and paper quality, the first British edition is far more pleasing than the first American.Field 929; Graff 2480; Hill 1018; Howes L317, "b."; Literature of Lewis & Clark 5A.2; Sabin 40829; Streeter Sale 3128; Wagner-Camp 13:2; Wheat, Transmississippi 317.

        Something Concerning Nobody Edited by Somebody. Embellished with Fourteen Characteristic Etchings.

      London: Robert Scholey, 1814. Full Morocco. Near Fine. Scarce satire, with only copies located on OCLC First Search at the British Library and the Huntington! 8vo. 18.5 by 12 cm. 191, [1] pp. 14 hand-colored plates. Modern full morocco roan reddish binding by Chris Arnison. An account of the travails, indignities, foibles and fooleries of the ordinary man, or Mr. Nobody. More of a series of lightly satiric sketches than a novel or novella. While today the Woodward caricatures -- scarce specimens from a caricaturist whose work is often hard to find -- are likely to excite greater interest among collectors, but the text is in fact every bit as worthy, and provides an excellent glimpse of Regency society and mores. A generally clean copy, in a lovely modern full roan colored morocco.

With an account of the shipwreck of the Porpoise, arrival of the Cumberland at Mauritius, and imprisonment of the commander during six years and a half in that island..

      London: G. and W. Nicol, 1814. A little light offsetting from the plates in the text volumes, but less than usual.. Two volumes quarto, and the atlas, elephant folio; the charts in the atlas all in their first issue and in the largest format; nine plates in the text; the atlas containing 16 folding or double-page charts, two plates (on four double-page sheets) of coastal views, and 10 double-page botanical plates; a very good set, the text in well-preserved contemporary calf, spines panelled in gilt in compartments between raised bands, red leather lettering-pieces and green leather numbering-pieces; the atlas in contemporary half calf and marbled boards, spine lettered boldly along its length; joints of text and atlas volumes neatly repaired. A wonderful set of the great classic of Australian coastal exploration, in fine condition and with the atlas in its preferred largest format and, startlingly, the first of the text volumes inscribed "From the Author". The old myth that Flinders died as his long-awaited book was put into his hands has long since been debunked but an example of his great book with a deliberate presentation inscription, probably put there at his request by his publisher Nicol, is of exceptional interest and rarity.We have handled this remarkable copy twice before, first in the 1980s.The two extensive text volumes and the accompanying very large volume of charts of the coastline represent the magnificent achievement that was Flinders's voyage in the Investigator, the full-scale expedition to discover and explore the entire coastline of Australia (the name that Flinders himself preferred and championed). Flinders was the first to circumnavigate the continent, finally establishing that Australia was one large island and not, as previously had been speculated, divided by a navigable central strait.The three volumes form the complete record of the expedition with an authoritative introductory history of maritime exploration in Australian waters from the earliest times. The text contains a day by day account of the Investigator voyage and Flinders' later voyages on the Porpoise and the Cumberland. Robert Brown's 'General Remarks, geographical and systematical, on the Botany of Terra Australis', which is illustrated by Ferdinand Bauer's botanical plates in the atlas, is printed in an appendix in the second volume. The text is illustrated by William Westall's nine engraved plates in the text and two double-page plates of coastal views in the atlas. These are in many cases the very earliest views of the places visited and discovered on the voyage. Flinders's charts in the atlas were of such accuracy that they continued to be issued by the Admiralty for decades and form the basis of all modern charts of Australia. The charts in this copy are all of the first issue."Flinders's Voyage to Terra Australis is the most outstanding book on the coastal exploration of Australia. It is the centrepiece in any collection of books dealing with Australian coastal discovery. Such is the historical importance of this monumental work that no general collection of Australian books could be considered complete without it" (Wantrup). This is a remarkable copy, in the best possible format and inscribed as a presentation copy from the great navigator.

        Voyage to Abyssinia

      1814 - (EAST AFRICA) SALT, Henry. A Voyage to Abyssinia, and Travels into the Interior of that Country, Executed". in the Years 1809 and 1810. London: F.C. and J. Rivington, 1814. Large quarto, contemporary full diced brown calf rebacked, black morocco spine label, raised bands, original marbled endpapers and edges. $4800.First edition of this fascinating travel narrative, chronicling Salt's expeditions across Egypt and Ethiopia, illustrated with two vignettes and 34 splendid copper-engraved plates and maps (four folding, one hand-colored), in contemporary calf boards.The renowned English diplomat archaeologist Henry Salt initially studied as a painter, and it was his artistic talents that "recommended him to the collector George Annesley, Viscount of Valentia, who took him on a tour of the East in 1802-06, during which he visited Egypt, Ethiopia and India. In 1809-10 Salt returned to Ethiopia as a quasi-official envoy under Canning's sponsorship, marching from the Red Sea coast with an escort of 160 bearers to explore trade and diplomatic links with the Ethiopian emperor Wolde Selassie. Britain, fearing a French alliance with Egypt, wished to secure a port on the Red Sea. Salt carried out a little archaeology, discovering at Aksum three large Ethiopian inscriptions," and documenting his work in this impressive volume (Howgego II:S6). Salt's role in three key excavations (Belzoni, Caviglia, and d'Athanasi) yielded splendid collections of Egyptian antiquities, many of which are now in the British Museum (Clayton, 44). In 1815 Salt was appointed Consul-General in Egypt and a year later, together with John Burckhardt, employed Giovanni Baptista Belzoni to remove the colossal bust of Rameses II from Thebes (now also in the British Museum). For this Salt was hailed as "the second Lord Elgin." Voyage to Abyssinia includes "particulars respecting the aboriginal African tribes, extending from Mosambique to the borders of Egypt" and a lengthy glossary of local languages. The numerous full-page illustrations are made by Charles Heath from original sketches by Salt, and include "perhaps the earliest printed illustration of hippo shooting" (Czech), which took place on the River Tacazzi.

      16 pp. 8vo, a wonderful cont. binding by George Mullen of Dublin (with his ticket) of cream-colored straight-grained morocco (spine very slightly darkened), richly gilt & blind-tooled, around sides gilt roll borders in a "Gothic" design, flanked by quadruple gilt fillets, central panels decorated in blind, in center of each cover a large lozenge-shaped arabesque blind stamp, inner arabesque cornerpieces; inside borders gilt, doublures & endleaves of blue watered silk, framed by blind ornamental borders, spine with four raised bands & richly gilt, second compartment with title lettered in gilt, a.e.g. [London: printed by W. Bulmer, [1814].]. First edition, limited to 36 copies only; one of the great Dibdin rarities, here bound, ca. 1816, in one of the masterpieces by George Mullen of Dublin, Ireland's finest binder of the period, with his ticket. In this work we find Dibdin in the guise of bookseller. In October 1814 Dibdin managed to purchase for 500 guineas from the Dean and Chapter of Lincoln Cathedral six volumes containing 19 titles, mostly black-letter rarities, including four Caxtons. Within a month, Dibdin produced the present catalogue. "The well-turned archness of the title and the enthusiasm of the descriptions, the use of the best printer in England and the small limitation, the quality and the rarity of the books…and the standing in the book world of the celebrated author of Bibliomania, were carefully chosen ingredients which made The Lincolne Nosegay the most exclusive bookseller's catalogue ever issued. It may perhaps be more aptly termed a private auction catalogue, for it is unpriced, but the distinction is not important. More important is the limitation of edition as the measure of Dibdin's influenceable circle of friends and maximum targeted sales audience: thirty-one in the Roxburghe Club, including himself, and five spare copies…It is therefore not surprising that the Nosegay became a highly-prized collector's bijou - a joy to possess and a frustration not to possess…The Nosegay has remained a rare and attractive relic of its age."-Rabaiotti, "Beckford's A Dialogue in the Shades and Dibdin's The Lincolne Nosegay" in The Book Collector, Summer 1989, pp. 212-13. Provenance: This copy was given or sold by Dibdin to the Rev. Daniel McNeille, rector of Hackestowne in Ireland; on the upper portion of a front flyleaf Dibdin has written: "Price stitched 3s/6d. Only 36 Copies printed. T.F.D." This copy was bought at the sale of McNeille's "valuable" library in Dublin in July 1816 (clipping regarding the sale from the Dublin Journal of 20 July 1816 mounted on an endpaper) by William Shaw Mason (1774-1853), author of A Statistical Account or Parochial Survey of Ireland. On the flyleaf, underneath Dibdin's note, the auctioneer, Richard Edward Mercier, has recorded that Dibdin himself had given him an unsuccessful commission for this book: "…I had a Commission from Mr. Dibdin to purchase for him this Literary Bijoux, which he was very anxious to repossess." Mason, who probably asked Mercier to write this note, had it bound by Mullen, the outstanding Irish binder of the period, and presented it to Earl Whitworth of Abaston (1795-1825), Lord Lieutenant of Ireland from 1813 to 1817. On another flyleaf, there is a dedication in Mason's hand: "His Excellency Charles Earl Whitworth, Lord Lieutenant of Ireland &c., whose kind Condecension has so especially promoted the progress of the Statistical Survey." With the bookplate of George John, Eighth Earl of De La Warr (1791-1869) on the front doublure. From the library of Bernard H. Breslauer (his sale, Christie's NY, 21 March 2005, lot 83). The binding was exhibited, and reproduced in the exhibition's catalogue, at the Houghton Library in 1991. Fine copy preserved in a box. ? Jackson 34. Windle & Pippin A 24a.

Noi siamo tutti bene e la salute è alquanto buona. [...]".

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. O. O. u. D.

      1814. 5 SS. Folio. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "In der Hoffnung dass es vielleicht von einigem Nutzen seyn dürfte wenn ich diejenigen Bemerkungen welche ich während meines Aufenthaltes in Breslau über den dortigen Zustand der Musik gemacht schriftlich mittheilte, so fand ich Gelegenheit in den zehn Tagen welche ich dort verweilte, folgende Erfahrungen in obiger Hinsicht zu machen. In Breslau angekommen ging ich zuerst in das königl. evangelische Seminar, um Herrn Hientsch, den ich von Berlin her kannte, wieder zu sehen. Er machte mich mit dem Äußerlichen der Anstalt gleich etwas bekannt. Auch probierte ich die Orgel, welche aber leider nur ein Manual hat und gar nicht von dem Umfange, von welchem ein solches Instrument für eine solche Anstalt billig seyn sollte. Auch ist eine Orgel für eine solche Anstalt, wo 80 und wohl noch mehr junge Leute sich zu Organisten bilden sollen, gar nicht ausreichend. Es ist daher höchst preiswürdig, dass ein hohes Ministerium dem Katholischen Seminario eine zweite Orgel bewilligt hat. Es steht daher zu hoffen, dass auch dem evangelischen Seminario eine solche 2te Orgel zu Theil werden wird [...]". - August Wilhelm Bach, zunächst von seinem Vater im Orgelspiel unterrichtet, studierte bei Karl Zelter, Ludwig Berger und Karl Wilhelm Henning. 1814 wurde er Organist an St. Gertraud, 1816 an der Marienkirche in Berlin. 1822 berief ihn Zelter als Lehrer an das neugegründete Königliche Institut für Kirchenmusik; 1832 wurde er dessen Nachfolger als Direktor. Er lehrte auch an der Berliner Akademie der Künste und war Orgelsachverständiger im preußischen Kultusministerium.
