        Klein Zaches genannt Zinnober. Ein Mährchen herausgegeben von E.T.A.Hoffmann.

      Berlin, bei Ferdinand Dümmler 1819 - 231, (1) S. Druckfehler. Illustrierter Orig.-Karton in Sepia nach Hoffmanns Zeichnungen. Leicht berieben, Rücken mit passendem Papier ersetzt. - Erste Ausgabe (Goedeke VIII,493,40; Salomon 102). – Leicht fleckig. - Die Idee zu "Klein Zaches" entstand während HOFFMANNs Krankheit, einem „Unterleibsübel mit gichtischen Zufällen“ (Hitzig), im Frühjahr 1818 aus Fieberphantasien, erschienen ist das Buch im Januar 1819. „In diesem Märchen, das ihm den Ruf des ‚ersten Humoristen‘ einbringt, geht es nicht zuletzt auch um eine spottlustige Abrechnung mit den Tendenzen zur Ausweitung der politisch-staatlichen Macht.“ (R.Safranski. HOFFMANN verhöhnt „die Phantasiefeindlichkeit der Aufklärung wie andererseits auch die Klischees der Romantik“ (KNLL 7,951.). Diese Aufklärung „ist nicht jene kritische Geisteshaltung, die sich mit den Namen LESSING, KANT oder LICHTENBERG verbindet, sondern meint die restlose Indienstnahme des Menschen für die Zwecke des staatlichen und wirtschaftlichen Funktionierens.“ (Safranski). „Die bizarre, phantastische Verflechtung . der realen Verhältnisse und der Märchenwelt setzen jene souveräne erzählerische Freiheit des Humors voraus, die . die Versöhnung als magische ‚Kunstfigur‘ entwirft, .“. (KNLL). HOFFMANN entwarf erstmals einen Buchumschlag selbst. „Er versuchte, wie RUNGE in symbolischer Form den Inhalt des . Werkes im Ganzen zu erfassen.“ (E.Riemer). Dem Grafen PÜCKLER-MUSKAU schrieb er dazu: „Zinnobers Porträt auf dem Deckel ist sehr ähnlich, denn da sonst niemand den Kleinen zu Gesicht bekommen konnte als ich selbst, so verfertigte ich auch selbst die Zeichnung.“ (24.Jan.1819).

Three small Penzance Library stamps on the title page, partially removed, but no other markings. {Possibly lacking one plate ? This frequently occurs in this work.} [One of the main accounts of the period, during which a large number of plants were both discussed and collected. Clarke Abel, 1780 - 1826) was a British surgeon and naturalist. He accompanied Lord Amherst on his mission to China as the embassy's chief medical officer and naturalist, on the recommendation of Sir Joseph Banks. The mission was Britain's second unsuccessful attempt to establish diplomatic relations with China and involved travelling to the capital Pekin (Beijing) and the famous botanical gardens of Fa Tee near Canton. While in China, Abel collected specimens and seeds of the plant that carries his name, Abelia chinensis. However a shipwreck and an attack by pirates on the way back to his home in Britain caused him to lose all of his specimens. The book gives a detailed account of the collection's misfortunes. Fortunately, he had left some specimens with Sir George Staunton at Canton, who was kind enough to return them to him; living specimens of the Chinese Abelia that we know today were later introduced by Robert Fortune in 1844. In March 1819 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society. Abel was the first Western scientist to report the presence of the orangutan on the island of Sumatra; the Sumatran Orangutan Pongo abelii is named for him. He went on to become the surgeon-in-chief to Lord Amherst when the earl was appointed Governor-general of India. Abel was also the first scientist to describe the Chiru or Tibetan Antelope, in 1826.]. Second edition. Half-Leather. Good.

        Kloster Limburg bei Bad Dürkheim, darunter eine Landschaftsstudie, 1819/23.

      - Bleistift, auf chamoisfarbenem Velin, rechts bezeichnet und datiert „Kloster Limburg den 19ten Aug.", links oben am Rand bezeichnet „3 Gegenden 2 Paar.". 43:27,3 cm. – Verso: Blick in ein Flußtal. Bleistift. – Insgesamt leicht fleckig. Bisher konnte nicht geklärt werden, wann Fries die Haardt und das Nahetal besuchte, um die Vorzeichnungen für einige Kupferstiche zu schaffen, die um 1820 in einem Ansichtenwerk im Verlag von Joseph Engelmann in Heidelberg erschienen sind. Es wäre möglich, daß die vorliegende Zeichnung auf einer eigenen, kurzen Reise von Heidelberg aus im August 1819 entstanden ist. Denn im folgenden Jahr 1820 kehrte Fries Ende Juli aus München nach Heidelberg zurück und wird nicht gleich wieder im August auf Reise gegangen sein. Die Zeichnung könnte so eine Lücke in der zeitlichen Abfolge der Reisen von Ernst Fries schließen. Vgl. Wechssler WV 788-804 (Arbeiten anderer Künstler nach Vorlagen von Ernst Fries); Lehmann, S. 211-213, Abb. 142-147. Zur Klosterruine Limburg vgl.

        A Voyage of Discovery Made Under the Orders of the Admirality, in His Majesty's Ships Isabella and Alexander, for the Purpose of Exploring Baffin's Bay and Inquiring Into the Plausability of a North-West Passage

      John Murray, London 1819 - 4to. Contemporary calf binding with rebacked spine and raised bands. xxxix [1] tipped in eratta slip, 252 p.p., cxliv. 15 colour plates [4 folding], 9 engravings [2 folding], 4 tables [2 folding] and 3 folding charts including frontispiece. Light scratches to front and rear board with rubbing to extremeties, but otherwise in fine condition. Sir John Ross (1777-1856) was a member of the Royal Navy, British naval officer and explorer who was selected to lead an arctic exhibition through David Strait and Baffin Bay in search of a Northwest passage. He commanded the ship Isabella, while William Edward Parry was in command of the their second ship, Alexander. Captain Edward Sabine was chosen by the Royal Society to make scientific observations. Also onboard was Ross' nephew, James Clark Ross. During the expedition he met with several Inuit tribes which he records. Unfortunately Ross made several critical errors, among them his false claim of mountain ranges off of Lancaster Sound that he named Croker's Mountains. This was met with much criticism and hotly debated after the publication of this book regarding the supposed mountains,even among members of the expedition including Sabine and Parry. In 1819-20, Parry was elected to lead the next arctic expedition, venturing beyond Lancaster Sound in the hope of discovering the Northwest passage. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Rocca di Mezzo, vicino a Civitella mit Blick auf die Monti Ruffi. In der Ferne das Bergdorf Rocca Canterano, um 1819.

      - Feder in Grau, grau laviert, über leichter Bleistiftskizze, auf cremefarbenem Velin. Darstellungsgröße 15,5:21,4 cm. – Darüber: Zwei Landschaftsskizzen von der Rheinreise, Juni 1819. Bleistift. 23:26 cm. – Verso: Zwei einzelne Bäume. Bleistift, einer bezeichnet „In der Natur viel dichter als da". Blattgröße 43,5:25,9 cm. Bei der italienischen Landschaft hat Fries die 1810 datierte Radierung „Rocca di Mezzo, vicino a Civitella" von Joseph Anton Koch (1768-1839) als Vorlage benutzt, Blatt 6 der 20-Blatt-Folge „Römische Ansichten". Wechssler erwähnt im WV, S. 19, ein großformatiges Skizzenbuch, das sich in Fries’schem Familienbesitz befand und aufgelöst wurde. Es enthielt Zeichnungen von den Reisen Mai/Juni 1822 nach Heilbronn, Stuttgart, Waldenburg und Hechingen und weiter Anfang August 1822 an den Genfer See und ins Wallis. Nur wenige Zeichnungen daraus sind bekannt. Das oben beschriebene Blatt dürfte aus diesem Skizzenbuch stammen, das auch Gravenkamp kannte und aufführte. Zum Zeichnen nach fremden Vorlagen schreibt Wechssler WV, S. 20: „Die Entwicklung vom Zeichnen nach Vorlagen zu selbständigen Arbeiten vollzieht sich in den Jahren 1818- 1823. Es hat den Anschein, dass ihn sowohl Landschaft als auch Bildnis- und Figurenzeichnen gleichermaßen beschäftigen." Ein weiteres Beispiel dafür, daß Fries nach einer in Grau und Braun lavierten Federzeichnung von der Hand Kochs gearbeitet hat, belegt eine Lithographie (1820/21) mit der Darstellung der „Via mala" (WV 784, Abb. S. 20). Selbst lernte Fries die Landschaft um Olevano und Civitella im September 1824 kennen, als er in und um Olevano unterwegs war (vgl. Wechssler WV 189-192.). Dort traf er seine Freunde Adrian Ludwig Richter, Carl Wagner, die Brüder Rist, Carl Wilhelm Götzloff, Ernst Ferdinand Oehme und Carl Gustav Boerner.

        Narrative of a Journey in the Interior of China, and of a Voyage To and From That Country, in the Years 1816 and 1817; containing an account of the most interesting transactions of Lord Amherst's embassy to the court of Pekin, and observations .

      Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme & Brown, London 1819 - Second edition, quarto, pp xvi, 420, with 10 plain litho plates, 7 hand coloured aquatint plates, 4 maps (of which 3 are folding), errata leaf present, some marking foxing and thumbing throughout, margins frayed of one plate, contemporary marbled boards, rubbed, a later calf spine, endpapers marked. Three small Penzance Library stamps on the title page, partially removed, but no other markings. {Possibly lacking one plate ? This frequently occurs in this work.} [One of the main accounts of the period, during which a large number of plants were both discussed and collected. Clarke Abel, 1780 - 1826) was a British surgeon and naturalist. He accompanied Lord Amherst on his mission to China as the embassy's chief medical officer and naturalist, on the recommendation of Sir Joseph Banks. The mission was Britain's second unsuccessful attempt to establish diplomatic relations with China and involved travelling to the capital Pekin (Beijing) and the famous botanical gardens of Fa Tee near Canton. While in China, Abel collected specimens and seeds of the plant that carries his name, Abelia chinensis. However a shipwreck and an attack by pirates on the way back to his home in Britain caused him to lose all of his specimens. The book gives a detailed account of the collection's misfortunes. Fortunately, he had left some specimens with Sir George Staunton at Canton, who was kind enough to return them to him; living specimens of the Chinese Abelia that we know today were later introduced by Robert Fortune in 1844. In March 1819 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society. Abel was the first Western scientist to report the presence of the orangutan on the island of Sumatra; the Sumatran Orangutan Pongo abelii is named for him. He went on to become the surgeon-in-chief to Lord Amherst when the earl was appointed Governor-general of India. Abel was also the first scientist to describe the Chiru or Tibetan Antelope, in 1826.] [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Voyage of Discovery Made Under the Orders of the Admiralty, in His Majesty's Ships Isabella and Alexander, for the Purpose of Exploring Baffin's Bay, and Inquiring into the Probability of a North-West Passage.

      A lovely, collectable condition copy of this elusive first edition. All plates and fold out charts and maps present. Errata slip present. Some quite stunning fold out colour illustrations which must have been hand coloured. There is a little browning/foxing to some of the plates and pages but really this is not at all severe. There is evidence of a name inscription which has been erased from the front end paper, causing the marbling to be rubbed off in that small area. The front board is present but detached and the head of the spine has been pulled away resulting in loss. The book would benefit from restoration work/rebinding. The boards appear to be the original marbled with quarter leather spine and corner tips. The spine title block is missing but the titles are still evident underneath where this would have been.

        Voyage dans Le Levant en 1817 et 1818.

      Paris:: Imprimerie Royale, 1819., 1819. 2 volumes. Text (sm. 8vo.) and Atlas folio. TEXT VOLUME: 8vo. [xii], 460 pp. Half-title ["se trouve chez Delaunay, libraire Palais-Royal, no. 243"], title vignette of the Armes Royale, dedication to the king, list of plates, with the rare folding engraved plate "Plan du Saint Sepulcre à Jerusalem"; plate is torn and mended (some Kozo, etc.). Contemporary quarter calf, paste-paper overs boards, red morocco gilt-stamped spine label, spine with gilt bands. ATLAS VOLUME: Large oblong folio. [54 cm]: [2] pages, 78 leaves of plates (70 lithographs after Carle Vernet, Fragonard, Isabey, Pierre Prevost, and Forbin, 8 aquatints by Debucourt after Forbin, 2 engravings by Englemann and Debucourt after Forbin), plans (etchings). Original printed cover-title mounted as a title, "Voyage dans Le Levant en 1817 et 1818 » on rouge colored paper. Handsomely bound in modern half dark calf, gilt-stamped spine, original spine preserved, early green cloth over boards, decorative endpapers. Bookplate of the Prince of Lichtenstein library [Ex-libris Liechtenstensteininis] of Vienna. Handsome set. FIRST EDITION OF BOTH PARTS, which were issued separately and thereby seldom found together. Brunet notes the Atlas was printed in 325 copies - this is repeated by Khatib, who explains the early publishing history thusly: "Two editions, one marked "Seconde", were issued in 1819 with the text in 8vo and the folio plates to be purchased separately." Dedicated to Louis XVIII (1755-1824). The year-long voyage went to Greece, Syria, and Egypt. Forbin had obtained permission to acquire specimens from Egypt for French museums. Forbin was accompanied by the artist Pierre Prevost (1764-1823) and a very young engineer de Louis Maurice Adolphe Linant de Bellefonds (1799-1883). The voyage was sponsored by Louis XVIII, the last king of France, who had himself lost many of royal powers subsequent to Napoleon's escape from Elba in 1815 and the 100 day campaign to retake the throne. Napoleon quickly gained support from military veterans still loyal to him. His campaign famously ended at Waterloo on June 18, 1815. This work is famous for the large number of large and remarkable plates. They were executed with the highest production methods and involved a number of qualified artists. Most "of the plates are scenes of Egypt and Palestine, after drawings by Forbin, Isabey, Prevost, Fragonard and Carle Vernet. The aquatint plates are all after drawings by Forbin himself." The travelers came first to Melos, Athens, Constantinople, Smyrna, Ephesus, Acre, Jafa, Jerusalem (noting the Temple of Solomon), The Dead Sea, Jordan, Cairo, Luxor, and Thebes. "In 1816 Forbin became Director of Museums in Paris and in August 1817 he made a semi-official year-long voyage to the Levant to purchase antiquities for the Louvre. He travelled to Athens, Constantinople, Asia Minor, Syria and Palestine. From Jaffa he went overland to Alexandria and visited Egypt. This book was the result; it was one of the first important French books to use lithography on a grand scale, and the standard of production is equal to that of Napoleon's Description de l'Egypte or Dominique Vivant Denon's Voyage dans la Basse et la Haute Egypte, 2 vols." - Khatib, p. 152-3.
