        Don Giovanni. Vocal score. German & Italian. [Don Juan : Oper in zwey Aufzügen von W.A. Mozart. Nebst einem Anhang von später eingelegten Stücken. Klavierauszug von A.E. Müller.]

      Leipzig: Breitkopf & Härtel, 1818. Hardcover. Very Good. Oblong folio (330 x 240mm). 184 pages. Complete vocal score. Notated music. Added engraved title page: Il dissoluto punito; osia, Il Don Giovanni. Dramma giocoso in due Atti posto in Musica da Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Ridotto per il Pianoforte da A.E. Müller with vignette of Don Giovanni scene by Fr. Bolt after Kininger, Pr. 4 Rthlr. Italian-German text. Richly bound in crushed green morocco handsomely gilt with device of lyre and central lozenge on front and rear covers, spine done in the same and lettered in gilt ?"Don Juan ?- Mozart,?" speckled edges; (toned and only lightly foxed, few pages margins lightly torn or with paper repairs, not frequent, good with all with engraved music otherwise). 1818 Leipzig printing for the vocal score of Mozart?'s famous opera ?'Don Giovanni?'. Italian librettos were translated into German owing to the growing popularity of opera in Germany during the last decade of the 18th century; contemporary to Mozart?'s death in 1791. Mozart immediately accepted at least the title under which on of his works would become known in the German-speaking countries: writing home on 3 October 1790, he reported, ?"on Tuesday the theatrical company of the elector of Mainz are performing my Don Juan.?" German communities variously received Mozart?'s operas; the battle between the aristocratic and bourgeois audiences raged to and fro. When Don Juan played for the first time in the Frankfurt theater it was deemed suitable ?"for the general public?" but not for its ?"educated section.?" Yet the critics could all concede of Mozart?'s popularity and that the subject matter turned the heads of the public. This fine, well-preserved dual text is an early and complete keyboard transcription of the opera. It gives Lorenzo da Ponte's original Italian, with the German translation by Schröder underneath. Excellent piece of music history and staple of the standard operatic repertoire.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Fouque").

      Nennhausen bei Rathenow, 24. VI. 1818.. 2 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 4to.. An einen Freund, dem er einen Band Voltaire zurücksendet und erklärt, warum er bislang keine Zeit gefunden habe, "recht ausführlich darüber zu schreiben": "[...] Die dazwischen liegenden Abhaltungen, mein theurer Freund, waren zum Theil sehr ernster Art. Mein ältester Stiefsohn, der Kammerherr Rochow auf Rekahn, ehemals Jäger und Jägerkürassier-Offizier im selben Regimente mit mir während des Befreiungskampfes, erkrankte schon vor Wochen in Berlin, wohin das Vertrauen seiner Mitstände ihn als Abgeordneten gesandt hatte. Unsre Hoffnung sank und stieg, bis vor nun beinahe acht Tagen die Botschaft eines sehr ernsten Rückfalles meine Frau nach Berlin rief. Für mich langsam Genesenden, hieß es, werde die heiße Stadtluft ein Gift sein, und meinen noch immer unbeholfnen Beinen das Pflaster eine nachtheilige Erschöpfung, und was der Gründe mehr waren, - kurz, ich mußte hier bleiben. Ihr inniges Herz, mein theurer Freund, empfindet ohne weiteres den Druck, den Centnerdruck, welcher damit auf meine Brust fiel. Doch gab mir Gott innerlich viel Gnade, und einen Muth, dessen meine Natur an sich grade in solchen Dingen nicht fähig ist [...]".

A spectacular, fine and fresh copy. Chemised in a later quarter green morocco slipcase, lerttered in gilt on spine.The genesis of this important work is explained in the introduction: "the following designs for rural buildings, accompanied by some practical observations, were presented to the public in the "Repository of Arts," under the title Architectural Hints, during successive months of the years 1816 and 1817. The proprietor of that work having received such applications for the series of designs in a separated form, as induces him to re-publish them; further observations have been added to supply, in part, the many deficiencies which necessarily occurred from so desultory a manner of publication." "A happy by-product of the designs having been published periodically is that they cover a large range of design: from small cottages for estate workers (including a garden, so that the uncultivated mind of the husbandman is kept occupied and out of the local village alehouse), through various cottage orné, a vicarage, a dairy, a fishing lodge, to perhaps the height of luxury: an ice house "calculated for an embellishment to the grounds of a nobleman, and contain[ing] in its plan and section all the requisites to the construction of an ice-well" (p.99).The fine hand colored plates include designs for various buildings including "Steward's Cottage", "A Bailiff's Cottage", "Gothic Cottage", several "Cottage Orné" plates, "A Vicarage House", several "Villas", "A Park Entrance", "A Gothic Conservatory", "A Dairy", "Fishing Lodge", "An Ice House", "Garden Seats", "A Verandah" and "A Domestic Chapel".A second edition was published in 1832.John Buonarotti Papworth (1775-1847) was an architect, artist, and founding member of the Royal Institute of British Architects. He was described by John Summerson as "one of the most versatile architects and decorative artists of the period". He contributed designs to Ackermann's Repository of the Arts for almost twenty years, and published some of his designs for houses as Designs for Rural Residences in 1818. In London, he designed shop fronts (one, for a tea merchant in Ludgate Hill, was in a "Chinese" style) and warehouses, and built or remodeled many villas for middle-class clients in the countryside. At Cheltenham he laid out the Montpellier Estate, and extended the Montpellier Pump Room (1825?-26), with a domed rotunda inspired by the Pantheon. He popularized the rustic "cottage ornée" style.Abbey Life 45; Archer 246.2; Brunet IV, 9814; Prideaux p. 347; Martin-Hardie, pp, 112,129, 312; Tooley 359.

        1818. Arranged alphabetically according to names. Nonresident Voters for the Borough and Hundred of Aylesbury. [title thus - with calligraphic flourishes - on upper cover].>

      8vo., (19 x 12 cms.), manuscript in ink on paper, approximately 140 written up pages (excluding blanks), all ruled in red, ledger style, with numerous original alterations and deletions, original parchment covered boards, covers a bit soiled else in very good state of preservation (now kept in a fitted cloth box, spine lettered). The general Parliamentary election of 1818 for the Aylesbury constituency was contested between George Grenville (Baron Nugent), William Rickford and Charles Compton Cavendish, the Cavendish party losing heavily. The enfranchised voters totalled about 1000, comprising, in 1818, both inhabitant householders and 40s. freeholders. The present list of non-resident voters throws some light on the diaspora of many of the voters whose places of residence covered not only almost all the Home Counties but also places much further afield. [For a scholarly commentary on the election itself, see Thorne, H. of C. 1790-1820, II,> pp.21-22].

        Hyakuba no zu [The Hundred Horses].

      [Japan, Bunsei era, 1818-30].. Manuscript (brush and wash), 2 vols., 194 × 105 mm, concertina-folded, with 61 drawings of horses (each double page, i.e. c. 210 × 195 mm), captioned. Original blue paper covered boards, labels to upper covers titled in manuscript. Traces of a numerous very neat paper repairs (usually correcting minute wormholes, as typical of Japanese books of this date, not affecting images), former (Japanese) owner's stamps to cover labels and first illustration in each volume. Preserved in a later blue silk covered folding case (wanting one bone closure).. An elegant and delightful series of manuscript portraits of horses by an unidentified Japanese hand. 'The Hundred Horses' was a popular subject in Japanese art and is represented both in panel pictures, scrolls and books. The title is representative rather than prescriptive and does not denote one hundred in number, but simply 'many'. While the horse was an ancient component of Japanese art, the subject of the Hundred Horses was probably introduced into Japan under Chinese influence by the beginning of the Edo period (1603), with associations of courtly culture based on the noble and military connotations of the horse. The concern here is for careful typology of the different breeds, with characteristics of physique and markings neatly depicted and explained in the captions ('chestnut', 'spotted' etc), but the various postures and attitudes are arresting. An example of a manuscript book of similar period, slightly more elaborate, is preserved in Waseda University Library:http://www.wul.waseda.ac.jp/kotenseki/html/chi04/chi04_01285/index.html.

        Accounts of the Whale Ship Rajah, 1841 - 1857

      Folio, about 75 pages of manuscript entries. The "Rajah" was a 250 ton bark built in Newburyport in 1818. In 1844, according to a note at the front of this book, she was "bought in New Bedford at auction 7mo. 19th 1844 at the rate of 10000 interest to 4 mo 1st 1845... 8 months 12 days 420/ $10420..." by the Quaker owner Henry Wilcox. This book documents in great detail the expenses and returns of the "Rajah's" first three voyages under Wilcox's ownership. According to Starbuck, she was sold after her third Wilcox voyage, in 1856, and ultimately sank in the Sea of Okhotsk in 1858. At the back of the book are records of settlements with co owners Oliver Brown, Thomas Bennett, Henry West, Job Davis, and William Wrightington. Clean and legible. Bound in diced calf over marbled boards. A splendid record.
