Little is known of the binder P. Devillers. Ramsden comments "Figures in the 1836-49 Almanachs at Augustin 55, but may have started as early as 1825". Francois Jauze studied at the l'Ecole nationale vétérinaire d'Alfort. He became the director of the blacksmithery at the College but failed to become Professor of farriery whereupon he left Alfort to create his own farrier veterinary school. Jauze's school issued diplomas to students after two years of study. This validity of his diploma was disputed and Jauze was stripped of the right to award it. His teaching and his text books were attacked in veterinary journals by authors such as Vatel or Jean Girard. (From the ENVA Website).

        Fundamenta astronomiae pro anno MDCCLV deducta ex observationibus viri incomparabilis James Bradley in specula astronomica Grenovicensi per annos 1750-1762 institutis.

      First edition Königsberg: Friedrich Nicolovius, 1818. A fine copy of this work which "constitutes a milestone in the history of astronomical observations, for until then positions of stars could not be given with comparable accuracy: through Bessel's work, Bradley's observations were made to mark the beginning of modern astrometry" (Walter Fricke in DSB). Norman 226; Honeyman 311. "In 1807 Olbers encouraged [Bessel] to do a reduction of Bradley's observations of the positions of 3,222 stars, which had been made from 1750 to 1762 at the Royal Greenwich Observatory. This task led to one of his greatest achievements ... "Bessel recognized that Bradley's observations gave a system of very accurate star positions for the epoch 1755 and that this could be utilized in two ways. First, a reference system for the measurement of positions of stars and planets was required. Second, the study of star motions necessitated the determination of accurate positions for the earliest possible epoch. Tobias Mayer had determined fundamental star positions from his own observations around the middle of the eighteenth century, but Bradley was never able to reduce his own numerous observations. "The observations of star positions had to be freed of instrumental errors, insofar as these could be determined from the measurements themselves, and of errors caused by the earth's atmosphere (refraction). The apparent star positions at the time of a particular observation (observation epoch) had to be reduced to a common point in time (mean epoch) so that they would be freed of the effects of the motion of the earth and of the site of observation. For this a knowledge of the precession the nutation, and the aberration was necessary. Bessel determined the latitude of Greenwich for the mean epoch 1755 and the obliquity of the ecliptic, as well as the constants of precession, nutation, and aberration. To determine precession from proper motions, Bessel used both Bradley's and Piazzi's observations ... "The positions of Bradley's stars valid for 1755 were published by Bessel as 'Fundamenta astronomiae pro anno 1755' (1818). This work also gives the proper motions of the stars, as derived from these observations of Bradley, of Piazzi, and of Bessel himself. It constitutes a milestone in the history of astronomical observations, for until then positions of stars could not be given with comparable accuracy: through Bessel's work, Bradley's observations were made to mark the beginning of modern astrometry. During this investigation Bessel became an admirer of the art of observation as practiced by Bradley; and because Bradley could not evaluate his own observations, Bessel followed and also taught the principle that immediately after an observation, the reduction had to be done by the observer himself. Further, he realized that the accurate determination of the motions of the planets and the stars required continuous observations of their positions until such motions could be used to predict 'the positions of the stars ... for all times with sufficient accuracy'."

        Letterpress receipt, completed in manuscript, signed by Brisbane.

      [England]: 1 September, 1818. Sheet of laid paper, 153 x 196 mm., printed to both sides and completed in secretarial hand, signed Brisbane. Attractive printed payslip boldly signed by Brisbane while serving in France as part of the occupying army.Sir Thomas Makdougall Brisbane (1773-1860) purchased his commission in 1789 and saw service in Ireland (where he served with a young Wellington), Flanders, the West Indies and Jamaica, India, and the Peninsula War. In 1812 he was promoted Brigadier-General at Wellington's express wish, and in 1815 was knighted. For the following three years he served in the army of occupation in France, and it was during his service there that he signed this slip at his new rank of Major General. As early as 1815 he had applied to become Governor of New South Wales, and it was not until November 1820, again on Wellington's advice, that that appointment was made and he took over from Macquarie in December the following year.The slip confirms that for the two month period between 25 June and 24 August 1818 Brisbane received the sum o9f £144.12.5 as pay for a "Major General with an Aide de Camp". The printed slip was issued on behalf of William Purdue Smith, Deputy-Paymaster General to the Forces on the Continent, under orders from Wellington.Manuscript material relating to Brisbane, particularly relating to his career before the governorship, is quite rare on the market. Very good.

        The Cottage in the Wood; or, The Art of Becoming Rich and Happy. 2nd edn. 18mo.

      Bradford: T. Inkersley. 1818 Engr. front. after F. James, sculpted by E. Stather; sl. offsetting on titlepage.Later 19th century full crimson crushed morocco, triple ruled gilt borders, raised bands, gilt compartments & dentelles, green & brown morocco labels. Bookplate of George John Armytage. v.g. 69pp.Brontë's tale emphasises the virtues of Christian conviction and restraint, and shows that a happy and loving relationship can only be achieved when the teachings of God have been truly accepted. Mary, the heroine, steadfastly rebuts the constant approaches of the dashing Mr Bower, as she cannot reconcile her absolute faith with his religious indifference. Only when he has accepted the Gospel can their lives be shared and true happiness be attained. Mr Bower, despite losing his fortune, becomes 'rich' through spiritual enlightenment, and the familial comforts that follow. In his preamble, Brontë emphasises his commitment to presenting the truth of human existence, and advises the reader against the artifice and deception apparent in the literature of the day. He is in no doubt as to the damaging nature of the current literary trends: 'The sensual novelist and his admirer, are beings of depraved appetites and sickly imaginations, who have learnt the art of self-tormenting, are diligently and zealously employed in creating an imaginary world, which they can never inhabit ... The romantic author, overstepping the bounds of probability, will freely indulge in the miraculous ... transforming beggars into kings and queens, and kings and queens into beggars ... extracting the most unqualified approbation, and the tenderest sympathy from the pusilanimous reader, who has never yet been wise enough to admire the language of truth ...'. This remains one of the Brontë family's most difficult titles: two copies are recorded on COPAC, at the BL and Leeds, and there are no records of the title at auction.

        Rural Residences, consisting of a series of designs for cottages, decorated cottages, small villas, and other ornamental buildings...

      London: for R. Ackermann, 1818. Imperial octavo, frontispiece and 26 aquatint plates, all handcoloured; nineteenth century purple half calf. In this beautifully illustrated book George Papworth (1775-1847) intended to demonstrate that even a modest cottage could be raised to a high aesthetic plane with the application of the principles of proportion and form. James Broadbent in The Australian Colonial House has traced the influence of Papworth's designs on grander Colonial works: for a palatial house Macarthur was to have built at Pyrmont, as well as some of the features of the prestigious Newington at Silverwater.This is a good copy of the first edition of Papworth's exquisite book on picturesque cottage design. Papworth, leading architect, landscaper and interior designer of his day, popularised the rustic cottages ornés through this work and in Ackermann's Repository of Arts, Literature, Fashions &c. Joints slightly rubbed but in generally fine condition.

        Theorematis fundamentalis in doctrina de residuis quadraticis demonstrationes et ampliationes novae.

      Göttingen: H. Dieterich, 1818. First edition, offprint issue and an exceptionally fine copy, of this important memoir in which Gauss provided a fifth and sixth proof of his great law of quadratic reciprocity, which he privately referred to as the Aureum Theorema (Golden Theorem). These two proofs are particularly important since, as Gauss explains in the introduction to the present work, the techniques they employ ('Gauss's lemma' and 'Gauss sums,' respectively) can be applied to the study of cubic and biquadratic reciprocity. These ideas were indeed used by many mathematicians, including Gauss himself, in the study of higher reciprocity laws from the nineteenth century through to the present day. Attempts to demonstrate one of these higher reciprocity laws led in 1995 to the proof of Fermat's last theorem (see below). The law of quadratic reciprocity was discovered by Euler in 1783, and incomplete proofs were given by Euler himself and in 1788 by Legendre. The law was discovered independently by Gauss when he was just 18, and a year later on 8 April, 1796 he found the first correct proof, which Kronecker (1823-91) aptly called "a test of the power of Gauss's genius." It was published in his greatest work Disquisitiones arithmeticae (1801), in which he wrote: "For a whole year this theorem tormented me and absorbed my greatest efforts until, at last, I obtained a proof." The attempt to generalize quadratic reciprocity for powers higher than the second was one of the main goals that led nineteenth century mathematicians, including Gauss, Dedekind, Dirichlet, Eisenstein, Hilbert, Jacobi and Kummer to the study of general algebraic number fields; notably, Kummer invented 'ideal numbers' in order to state and prove higher reciprocity laws. The ninth in the list of 23 unsolved problems which David Hilbert proposed to the International Congress of Mathematicians in 1900 asked for the "Proof of the most general reciprocity law for an arbitrary number field." "Gauss' fifth proof of the quadratic reciprocity is Gauss' most elementary proof of the quadratic reciprocity law... for which Gauss has given altogether eight proofs, six of which were published, and two more were found in his papers after his death. The fifth proof was published in 1818, together with the sixth proof, under the title Theorematis Fundamentalis in Doctrina de Residuis Quadraticis Demonstrationes et Ampliationes Novae. But Gauss found it probably already between 1807 and 1808... [it is] based on Gauss' lemma" (Laudal & Piene, p. 276). "The sixth and last of Gauss' published proofs of the law of quadratic reciprocity was published in 1818... He mentions in the introduction to this paper that for years he had searched for a method that would generalize to the cubic and biquadratic case and that finally his untiring efforts were crowned with success... The purpose of publishing this sixth proof, he states, was to bring to a close that part of the higher arithmetic dealing with quadratic residues and to say, in a sense, farewell..." (Ireland & Rosen, p. 76). Quadratic reciprocity is a result about 'modular arithmetic.' Two integers (whole numbers) m and n are said to be equal modulo an integer p if m - n is an integer multiple of p (so there are only p distinct integers modulo p). "For almost all its history, the study of modular arithmetic has been driven purely by its inherent beauty and by human curiosity. But in one of those strange pieces of serendipity which often characterize the advance of human knowledge, in the last half century modular arithmetic has found important applications in the "real world." Today, the theory of modular arithmetic (e.g., Reed-Solomon error correcting codes) is the basis for the way DVDs store or satellites transmit large amounts of data without corrupting it. Moreover, the cryptographic codes which keep, for example, our banking transactions secure are also closely connected with the theory of modular arithmetic. "The first really great achievement in the study of modular arithmetic was Carl Friedrich Gauss's proof in 1796 of his celebrated law of quadratic reciprocity... It states that 'if p is a prime number, then the number of square roots of an integer n in arithmetic modulo p depends only on p modulo 4n'... Gauss's theorem also provides a very effective way of determining the number of square roots a whole number has in arithmetic modulo a prime number p... One could ask for a similar method that given any number of polynomials in any number of variables helps one to determine the number of solutions to those equations in arithmetic modulo a variable prime number p. Such results are referred to as 'reciprocity laws'." (Taylor). In 1957 the Japanese mathematicians Yutaka Taniyama and Goro Shimura proposed a reciprocity law for cubic equations in two variables. "In the mid-1980s, Gerhard Frey, Jean-Pierre Serre, and Kenneth Ribet showed that the Shimura-Taniyama reciprocity law, if true, would imply Fermat's Last Theorem. Motivated by this, in 1995, Andrew Wiles, partly in collaboration with the author, established many cases of the Shimura-Taniyama reciprocity law and hence finally proved Fermat's Last Theorem" (ibid.).

[2], [v]-xxxii, [ii], 270, [1, errata] [1] pp. 8vo. Maria Gisborne's copy. This edition reproduces the text of Laon and Cythna (1818), made up of the same sheets, with a new title-page and twenty-six cancel leaves, the Preface ending on p. xxi and the half-title changed to The Revolt of Islam. "When only a few copies [of Laon and Cythna] had been issued, Ollier, the publisher, demanded that certain passages be removed or changed, and Shelley, under protest, acceded to his wishes" (Granniss Shelley 44). This copy belonged to Maria Gisborne (1770-1836), an intimate of Percy and Mary Shelley, and the subject of Shelley's fine poem "Letter to Maria Gisborne." Gisborne had been a friend of Mary Shelley's parents, Mary Wollstonecraft and William Godwin. (Following the death of Wollstonecraft, Gisborne would reject a marriage proposal from Godwin.) Her frienship with Mary and Percy Shelley dates from 1818, when the couple came to stay with her and her husband John Gisborne at their home Casa Ricci in Livorno, Italy, (where Shelley would write the "Letter" as well as "To a Skylark"). On a subsequent visit the Gisbornes comforted the Shelleys following the death of their son William. "Maria, widely read in Spanish and Italian literature, took this opportunity to share her knowledge with the Shelleys. It was she who alerted the Shelleys to the story of the Cenci by showing them a manuscript of the narrative, which Mary copied and Percy used for his famous play. Maria also began teaching Percy Spanish and helped him read the plays of Calderón. On their side, the Shelleys helped finance Henry Reveley's project to build a steamboat. Unbeknownst to Mary, Percy also asked for and received aid from the Gisbornes in the delicate matter of his illegitimate child, Elena Adelaide Shelley ... After Percy was drowned in July 1822, it was to Maria Gisborne that Mary wrote on 15 August a long account of their last days together and the aftermath of her husband's death. Maria again comforted the young widow, and their friendship and correspondence continued to the end of Maria's life" (ODNB) The book is identified as Gisborne's by an autograph note on the front pastedown by H. Buxton Forman, who acquared it at an 1878 sale. Ashley V, pp. 67-68; Granniss 44; Tinker 1895. Provenance: H. Buxton Forman (extensive autograph note on pastedown detailing provenance, bookplate laid in); Jerome Kern (bookplate)

William Mariner (1791?1853) was an Englishman who lived in Tonga from 29 November 1806 to (probably) 8 November 1810. He later published Tonga Islands, an account of his experiences that is now one of the major sources of information on Tonga, before it was significantly influenced by European culture, Christianity or colonisation.nnAs a teenager, Mariner was a ship's clerk aboard the British privateer Port au Prince. In 1806, while it was anchored off the Tongan island of Lifuka, in the Ha'apai island group, Port au Prince was seized by a chief named Finau Ulukalala. Most of the crew were killed during the capture of the ship, but the chief spared Mariner and a few crewmates. Mariner lived in Tonga for four years. After returning to England, Mariner he dictated a detailed account of his experiences, a description of Tongan society and culture, and a grammar and dictionary of the Tongan language.nnThe Port-au-Prince was an English private ship of war, a vessel of 500 tons armed with 24 long nine and twelve pound guns as well as 8 twelve pound carronades on the quarter deck. She carried a "letter of marque" and this document permitted her Captain and crew to become pirates against the enemies of England, primarily France and Spain. In payment for their pirate raids any plunder they seized was to be their own.nnCommanded by Captain Duck she sailed for the New World on 12 February 1805 having been given a twofold commission by her owner, a Mr. Robert Bent of London. Their primary goal was to attack the Spanish ships of the New World capturing gold and valuables but if she failed in that task her secondary objective was to sail into the Pacific in search of whales to be rendered for their oil.nnThe Atlantic crossing was rough but uneventful and she lay off the coast of Brazil by April and then rounded Cape Horn in July before proceeding north in search of Spanish Galleons laden with treasure. They captured a number of ships but most yielded little in the way of valuables and at times the men began to get disgruntled by capturing what they contemptuously referred to as dung barges. The Port-au-Prince was now also on the lookout for whales as well but, although catching a few, experienced little success in this endeavour.nnAfter leaving Hawaii in September under the command of Mr. Brown, she intended to make port at Tahiti but missed the target and instead sailed westward for the Tonga Islands. She arrived in Ha'apai on 9 November 1806, almost two years since departing England and after numerous engagements, leaking badly and having already witnessed the death of her captain. She was laden with the spoils of war and cargo amounting to approx twelve thousand dollars plus a considerable amount of copper plus silver and gold ore. A large quantity of silver candlesticks, chalices, incense pans, crucifixes and images complemented the treasure.nnShe weighed anchor, in seven fathoms water off the North West Point of Lifuka Island, for what was destined to be the last time. A number of chiefs visited the ship on the evening of her arrival and brought with them barbecued hogs, yams and a native of Hawaii who spoke some English informing Captain Brown that the Tongans had only friendly intentions. Finau, the chief of the Ha'apai, apparently took a liking to William Mariner, who reminded Finau of a son who had died of illness.nnPort-au-Prince also had Hawaiian crew who did not trust the situation and expressed concern to the captain that the Tongans were feigning friendliness while planning attack. Captain Brown chose to ignore the warnings.nnThe next day Tongans began to board the vessel until there were around 300 in different parts of the ship. They invited Captain Brown ashore to see the Island and assured of their friendly motives he agreed. On arrival he was clubbed to death, stripped and left lying in the sand. Simultaneously the main attack commenced on the Port-au-Prince. The sailors were outnumbered and overwhelmed easily.nnFinau had given instructions that the life of Mariner should be spared if at all possible. All but four of the crew members were clubbed to death, their heads so badly beaten as to be unrecognisable. For the next three days the ship was stripped of her iron, a valuable commodity, and had her guns removed before being burnt to the water line to more readily remove what iron remained.nnFinau assumed responsibility for Mariner, taking him under his protection.nnMariner became known as Toki 'Ukamea (Iron Axe) and spent the next four years living amongst the islanders. He lived mostly in the northern island group of Vava?u.nnDuring this period, Mariner witnessed Finau's attempts to unify the islands, using cannon seized from the Port-au-Prince. One long nine still lies on Ha'anno Island.nnIn 1810, Mariner was rescued and returned to England. He related his story to John Martin, who authored the book The Tongan Islands, William Mariner's account.nnMariner gave a lively description of Finau Fangupo in particular. In one passage, Mariner quoted Finau's opinion of the western innovation of money:nn If money were made of iron and could be converted into knives, axes and chisels there would be some sense in placing a value on it; but as it is, I see none. If a man has more yams than he wants, let him exchange some of them away for pork. [...] Certainly money is much handier and more convenient but then, as it will not spoil by being kept, people will store it up instead of sharing it out as a chief ought to do, and thus become selfish. [...] I understand now very well what it is that makes the papalangi [white men] so selfish ? it is this money!nnThere are three major versions of Mariner's account. The original version was first published in 1817 by John Murray II, with the help of Dr. John Martin, who assumed authorship. Later editions appeared in England in 1818 and 1827 and in Germany in 1819 and the United States in 1820. The Vava'u Press of Tonga issued a new edition in 1981 that includes a biographical essay about Mariner, written by Denis Joroyal McCulloch, one of Mariner's great-great grandsons, but leaves out the grammar and dictionary. Two modern editions with modern Tongan spelling and other additions have been published, the first by Boyle Townshend Somerville in 1936 and the second by Paul W. Dale in 1996. (Wikipedia)

        Narrative of a Voyage to Senegal in 1816; Undertaken by Order of the French Government, Comprising an Account of the Shipwreck of the Medusa, the Sufferings of the Crew, and the Various Occurrences on Board the Raft, in the Desert of Zaara, at St. Louis, and at the Camp of Daccard.

      First English Edition, translated from the expanded second French edition of 1817. London: Printed for Henry Colburn, 1818. 8vo, contemporary tree calf, red leather label, gilt rules and lettering. Colored frontis and one plate. ¶ A harrowing narrative written by two of the passengers on the French frigate La Méduse, which was sailing from Rochefort to Senegal when it ran aground on the Arguin Bank off the northwest coast of Africa on July 2, 1816. The incompetent and panic-stricken officers of the ship obliged more than 150 passengers and crew to board a small, half-submerged raft, which was promptly cut loose and abandoned. Two weeks later a mere dozen survivors were rescued. The horrible incident is now best known as the subject of a dramatic painting by Théodore Géricault. Savigny and Corréard recount their own grisly experiences and those of other survivors; and they even include straightforward descriptions of the islands and countries they visited before and after the disaster. Spine and edges rubbed; hinges repaired; prelims lightly foxed; very good copy.

        An Account of the Natives of the Tonga Islands, in the South Pacific Ocean. With an original grammar and vocabulary of their language. Compiled and arranged from the extensive communications of Mr. William Mariner, several years resident in those islands.

      London: John Murray, 1818. Two volumes, octavo, large folding map, engraved frontispiece of Mariner in Tongan dress, three leaves of native music; an attractive set in contemporary handsome green half calf (with matching marbled boards, endpapers and edges), spine gilt with red labels. Second edition of Martin's important account of William Mariner's four years in Tonga between 1806 and 1810.Martin's account of Tonga - Cook's "Friendly Isles" - was first published in London in 1817, this second revised edition was issued the following year and contains a large folding map of the Tongan archipelago not present in the first edition. This detailed and finely engraved map shows outlying reefs and notes the exact point where Mariner was wrecked off the island of Lefooga (present day Lifuka in the Haapa'i group).The work is based on the life of William Mariner, who sailed on the Port au Prince, a privateer which attacked Spanish vessels in the Pacific. They landed at the Hapai Islands in Tonga in 1806, were attacked after a quarrel, and the ship was burnt and destroyed. Adopted by a Tongan chief, and given the name of chief's dead son, he spent four years learning the language and customs of Tonga until, in 1810, he hitched a passage home on an English boat. His account of life on Tonga, prepared for the press by John Martin, is 'considered the best report of Tongan life and culture before the arrival of Christianity' (Hill).There is a significant passage in the Mariner/Martin account relating to the voyage of the Bounty when Mariner visits the grave of John Norton in Tofua. Norton had been quarter-master on the Bounty, and sailed with Bligh on the open-boat voyage; he died helping wrest the boat free where it had gone aground during an affray.The preface to this second edition notes that the testimonial of William Mariner, here written up and edited for the public by John Martin, has been verified by one Jeremiah Higgins who served on the Port au Prince, survived the massacre and lived in Tonga for two years and eleven months. Significantly Higgins was not adopted into the Tongan aristocracy, subsequently his account lacks many of the privileged insights of William Mariner's. Any edition of this work is rare: the Kroepelien catalogue lists only the London and French second editions, although Rolf du Rietz's note otherwise mentions editions in Germany (1819), Boston (1820) and Edinburgh (1827).This is an unusually fine set with half-titles present for both volumes, absent in the Kroepelien copy.

Nasse gab sie in Verbindung mit den wichtigsten Psychiatern seiner Zeit heraus (zu Beginn Haindorf, Hayner, Heinroth, Hoffbauer, Henke, Hohnbaum, Horn, Maaß, Pienitz, Ruer und Weiß). Während sie in den ersten Jahren eher auf Beobachtung der klinischen Praxis ausgerichtet war, geriet sie später wohl unter dem Einfluß der Bonner Umgebung (Ennemoser veröffentlichte ab Band 3 mehrere Beiträge) in spekulative Bahnen. Der ab 1820 erstmals auftauchende Untertitel \"mit besonderer Berücksichtigung des Magnetismus\" bestimmte aber die Richtung der Zeitschrift insgesamt nicht (ANGST 40ff.), und danach fehlen Arbeiten über den Magnetismus ganz. Die Zeitschrift ist die erste im deutschsprachigen Raum, die allein von Ärzten herausgegeben wird. In ihr findet die Auseinandersetzung zwischen \"Somatikern\" (wie Nasse) und \"Psychikern\" (wie Heinroth) statt. In Band 3 ist u.a. die medizinische Dissertation von Friedrich Schiller enthalten (\"Versuch über den Zusammenhang der thierischen Natur des Menschen mit seiner geistigen\"), die hier zum ersten Mal nach ihrer Veröffentlichung im Jahre 1780 erschien und von Romberg mit einem einleitenden Kommentar vorgestellt wird.

        Traité sur les champignons comestibles, contenant l'indication des espèces nuisibles ; précédé d'une introduction à l'histoire des champignons

      [2]-276 pp., [1] ff. Paris, chez Belin-Leprieur, 1818, , [2]-276 pp, [1] ff. d'errata, 4 pl, demi-percaline bleue postérieure, pièce de titre rouge, 4 planches gravées sur cuivre coloriées à la main, donnant 2 à 5 sujets pour la même variété de champignon. Très rare édition originale de ce traité du plus grand mycologue de son temps, Christiaan Hendrik Persoon (1763-1836). L'un des premiers ouvrages jamais publiés consacrés aux propriétés comestibles des champignons, "volume, utile sous plus d'un rapport, mais surtout recommandable parce qu'il ouvrait une voie nouvelle" (Noulet, Traité des champignons comestibles.., 1838, p. XIV). La seconde édition, parue en 1819, se rencontre plus fréquemment. L'ouvrage a également été publié en allemand en 1822. Persoon grandit à l'orphelinat du Cap en Afrique du Sud. Il obtint de la Compagnie des Indes Orientales les subventions qui lui permirent d'étudier en Europe, la théologie à Halle, puis la médecine à Leyde. Sa passion pour la botanique le conduisit finalement à Göttingen et à l'Université d'Erlangen, où il devint docteur en sciences naturelles. En 1803, il s'installe à Paris où il mène, dans la pauvreté, une vie de reclus dévouée aux champignons. Étiquette et cachets de l'Institut catholique de Paris. Étiquette en pied du dos. État moyen ; l'exemplaire est affecté par une large auréole très sombre qui s'étend sur le premier tiers de l'ouvrage. Quelques rousseurs aux derniers feuillets, annotations légères au crayon sur les planches Volbracht, Myko Libri, n° 1587. Pritzel n° 7063.

        Blick von erhöhtem in das Tal der Salzach bei Salzburg.

      - Aquarell über Feder in Grau und Bleistift, auf bräunlichem festem Bütten. . 26,2:37 cm. Ein stilistisch und farblich sehr verwandtes Blatt zeigt eine topographisch nicht näher bestimmbare „Hügellandschaft mit Bäumen, Wiese und Hang", ebenfalls in unserem Besitz (vgl. Kat. 105, Nr. 36 und ist mit „29 Aug. 72." datiert. Bereits im Alter von erst 10 Jahren begann Friedrich Preller, dessen Talent von seinen Eltern gefördert wurde, mit Studien an der Weimarer Zeichenschule. 1818 setzte er bei dessen Direktor, dem Maler und Kunstschriftsteller Heinrich Meyer (1760-1832), einem engen Freund und Mitarbeiter Goethes, seine Malstudien fort. 1821 – er hatte sich Geld durch Kolorieren von Stichen für Friedrich Justin Bertuch (1747-1822) verdient – ging er nach Dresden. Hier begann er mit dem Kopieren von Altmeistergemälden aus der Dresdener Galerie. Erste Fahrten mit anderen Kunststudenten zum Studium der Natur in die nähere Umgebung Dresdens folgten. Durch Goethes Vermittlung – Preller war inzwischen dessen Schützling geworden – lernte er auch Carl Gustav Carus (1789-1869) kennen, der ihn künstlerisch anleitete. Goethe selbst beauftragte Preller nach dessen erstem Dresden-Aufenthalt, für seine naturwissenschaftlichen Untersuchungen Reinzeichnungen von Wolkenstudien anzufertigen. Mit finanzieller Unterstützung des Großherzogs Karl August konnte Preller nach Antwerpen reisen, wo er 1824-1826 an der Akademie bei Mattheus Ignatius van Bree (1773-1839) seine Studien fortsetzte. Kurz nach seiner Rückkehr ermöglichte ihm jetzt ein Jahresstipendium des Großherzogs 1826-1828 einen Aufenthalt in Mailand, wo er an der Akademie bei Cattaneo studierte. 1828-1831 hielt Preller sich in Rom auf und wurde maßgebend von Joseph Anton Koch (1768-1839), mit dem er Ausflüge in die nähere Umgebung der Stadt unternahm, beeinflußt; daneben hatten die Landschaftsmaler Claude Lorrain (1600-1682), Nicolas Poussin (1594-1665) und Gaspard Dughet (1613-175) Vorbildcharakter; die Freundschaft mit Bonaventura Genelli (1798-1868) brachte darüber hinaus Anregungen für seinen Figurenstil. Von Rom aus besuchte Preller Olevano und Neapel. Auch war er rege am deutsch-römischen Kunstleben beteiligt, so war er Gründungsmitglied des römischen Kunstvereins sowie General der Ponte-Molle-Gesellschaft. Nach seiner Rückkehr nach Weimar wurde Preller 1832 erst Lehrer an der Zeichenschule, 1844 erfolgte die Ernennung zum Professor und Hofmaler. 1837 unternahm er, zunächst aus gesundheitlichen Gründen, eine erste Reise nach Rügen; 1839, 1847 und zuletzt 1872 folgten weitere – Prellers Nordlandbegeisterung führte ihn 1840 zudem nach Norwegen. Sein Ruf als bedeutender Maler melancholischer nordischer Landschaften und wilder Seestücke wurde dadurch noch ausgebaut. Ein zweiter, fast eineinhalbjähriger Aufenthalt in Italien folgte 1859-1861 – vor Ort wollte er Studien für seinen zweiten berühmten Zyklus der Odyssee-Wandbilder anfertigen, ein Auftrag des Großherzogs. 1868 wurde Preller schließlich Direktor der Weimarer Zeichenschule. Auf seinen wiederholten Reisen nach Italien, dürfte Preller auch über Salzburg gekommen sein. Erstmals wohl 1826, als er gemeinsam mit seinem Malerfreund Adolph Kaiser (1804-1861) nach Mailand reiste.
