        PORTRAITS, MEMOIRS, AND CHARACTERS, OF REMARKABLE PERSONS, FROM THE REVOLUTION IN 1688 TO THE END OF THE REIGN OF GEORGE II

      London: Published by H. R. Young and T. H. Whitely, 1819. n. Hardcover. 318 x 254 mm (12 1/2 x 10"). Four volumes. Attractive modern retrospective black half morocco over green marbled boards, flat spines divided into panels with central gilt urns, edges untrimmed, partly unopened. With 155 fine engraved portrait plates of thieves, murderers, freaks, and scoundrels. A Large Paper Copy. Second volume slightly cocked, variable offsetting from virtually all plates, perhaps a third of the leaves in volume I faintly browned and somewhat foxed, about half the plates in volume II with small, gray dampstain at lower outer corner, occasional yellowing and foxing elsewhere; undeniable condition issues, but still a satisfactory set, most of the text and plates fresh and clean, the bindings with virtually no wear, and the margins immense. Originally appearing in parts from 1790 to 1795, this collection of portraits accompanied by letterpress biographies was the major work of author and printseller James Caulfied (1764-1826), who took shrewd business advantage of the craze for historical portraits that followed the 1769 publication of Granger's "Biographical History of England." According to the DNB, Caulfield specialized "in prints illustrating Granger's twelfth class of people--'such as lived to a great age, deformed persons, convicts, &c.'--whose portraits were very often the hardest to come by," and our volumes are indeed a gallery of these types. We see the very respectable and venerable Catherine Warman, who lived to be 107, famed highwayman Richard "Dick" Turpin, several Scots who supported Bonnie Prince Charlie, a maid who ruthlessly murdered her employers, as well as a man born without arms, a "musical small coal-man," and Jeremiah White, the "humorous chaplain to Oliver Cromwell." Some of the portraits veer towards caricature or the grotesque, but as a group, they make up a memorable gallery. One could hardly hope to find a larger copy than the present one: all 32 copies recorded in ABPC since 1975 are the octavo version of our edition. Currently, there seem to be two other copies on the market, one 29 cm., and the other 25 cm.

        The Vampyre, A Tale.

      London: Sherwood, Neely and Jones, 1819., 1819. First Edition, Second Issue. An untrimmed/uncut copy, sewn sheets, possibly disbound from a larger collection. Introduction set in 24 lines rather than 23, mentioning scurrilous rumours that Mary Shelley and Clair Claremont may have been only in it for the orgies and then denying that this could ever be the case, also mentioning Frankenstein as one of the most notable products of the storytelling night. All points as called for, nice wide margins. A pretty copy of a hugely influential book that is becoming scarcer than actual vampires. A charming harking back to the days before bloodsuckers got all glittery and angsty. Written of course by the doomed, unfortunate and ultimately it has to be said; frequently idiotic John Polidori; 19th Century poster boy for squandered talent and misdirected angst. A splendid little work, probably the first English vampire story. Originally ascribed to Lord Byron himself, and indeed featuring a central character with a startling resemblance to our favourite 'mad, bad and dangerous to know.' poet, the story is yet another bizarre product of that evening in the Villa Diodati during the year with no summer that gave us the redoubtable 'Frankenstein' and an ever expanding cloud of gothic rumour. The publishers were forced to remove Byron's name from the title and half title, and the number of first issue copies known to have endured reaches the grand total of one. The subsequent issue mentions Byron (as Lord B....) in the foreword letter, but the idea he may have written the story is not alluded to, which didn't stop people believing it. Polidori, a strange, twitchy and rather tragic figure, committed suicide in 1821 fearing ruination through unpaid debts. He drank prussic acid, which seems a pretty rough end for a physician to choose, but despite the considerable evidence that he died at his own hand his death was recorded as being from natural causes. Whilst it may be overstepping the mark to state that he invented the Vampire novel, it is certainly a fact that he invented the Vampire that many of us identify the genre with; the aristocratic, suave seductive fiend preying on society, and for this we have to thank him.

        The Vision;

      London: Taylor and Hessey,, 1819. or Hell, Purgatory, and Paradise... Translated by the Rev. Henry Francis Cary... The Second Edition, Corrected. With the Life of Dante, Additional Notes, and an Index. 3 volumes, octavo (224 x 132 mm). Late 19th century deep purple straight-grain morocco, decorative gilt spines, three-line blind-rule border on sides (with gilt corner rosettes) enclosing broad blind roll tool border and single-line gilt panel, top edges gilt, two-line gilt turn-ins, plum-coloured endpapers. Spines just lightly sunned, bump to fore-edge of volume II, scattered foxing and paper toning. A very good tall set, with the half-titles. Second and best edition of Cary's translation, one of the most important of the Romantic era; a lovely copy in a fine late 19th century imitation of a period binding. "In January 1797 Cary began his translation of Dante's Divina commedia into blank verse. He started with the Purgatorio in 1797?-8, but in 1800 he turned his attention to the Inferno, and it was this part which was published first, in 1805?-6, accompanied by the Italian text. Sales were small, but Cary continued, and his translation was completed in 1812. As he could not find a publisher he published the work at his own expense (which he could ill afford) in 1814. It was entitled The Vision, or, Hell, Purgatory, and Paradise, of Dante Alighieri, and was printed in three sextodecimo volumes in such small type that it was almost unreadable. Cary was not adept at self-promotion, and his translation initially attracted little attention... Then in October 1817 he made the acquaintance by chance of Coleridge at Littlehampton, and the praise which Coleridge gave to Cary's Dante in a lecture early in 1818 (reinforced by a favourable article by Ugo Foscolo in the Edinburgh Review) led to the sale of 1,000 copies in less than three months, and the publication of a second edition in 1819... This work is his chief claim to fame, and it remained a standard text well into the twentieth century, despite the fact that the number of translators of the work between 1782 and 1966 amounted to eighty-four. Cary's version was admired by Wordsworth, Keats, Lamb, Coleridge, Macaulay, and Ruskin, and in 1966 the author of a work on translations of the Divina commedia wrote 'Cary's version still holds its place as a minor classic, thanks to the fact that its author was a competent versifier with some poetic perception' [G. F. Cunningham, The 'Divine comedy' in English: a critical bibliography, 2 vols. (1965?-6)]" (ODNB).

        THE HISTORY OF THE ROYAL RESIDENCES OF WINDSOR CASTLE, ST. JAMES'S PALACE, CARLTON HOUSE, KENSINGTON PALACE, HAMPTON COURT, BUCKINGHAM HOUSE, AND FROGMORE

      London: Printed for A. Dry, 1819. FIRST EDITION n. Hardcover. Pyne in Mahogany: a Royally Owned Copy with 100 Hand-Colored Plates,Vast Margins, Monumental Red Morocco, and the Original Wooden Box. mm (). Three volumes. FIRST EDITION. STATELY CONTEMPORARY RED MOROCCO, HANDSOMELY GILT, BY J[OHN] MACKENZIE (signed on flyleaf verso), covers with gilt frames composed of multiple thick and thin rules alternating with palmette rolls (16 rules and three rolls in all), raised bands, spine compartments densely gilt with unusual floral tooling, gilt-ruled turn-ins, dark green endpapers, all edges gilt. IN THE ORIGINAL VELVET-LINED MAHOGANY BOX with recessed brass handles (the box somewhat scratched, but still very attractive). WITH 100 FINE HAND-COLORED PLATES OF BRITISH ROYAL PALACES (mostly interiors, but several sunny exterior views), plus seven further tipped-in hand-colored plates (four full-page and three smaller) from the period and related to royal residences, but not a part of this publication. A Large Paper Copy. Verso of front free endpaper with tipped-on handwritten note in French relating the royal provenance of these volumes (see below). Abbey "Scenery" 396; Prideaux, p. 348; Tooley 389; Lowndes V, 2015. Top corner of one board of first volume a bit abraded, covers with a few trivial spots, just a hint of wear to spine ends and corners, other insignificant imperfections externally, but the bindings generally in beautiful condition, with joints unworn, without any fading, and with obvious evidence of being protected over the years by the original wooden box. Isolated small spots of foxing, but an ESPECIALLY FINE SET, the text and plates within vast margins and showing the consistently clean, fresh, and smooth look of volumes that have encountered very little use. This is a most impressive copy--with regal proportions and provenance--of a luxurious work that is not only beautiful, but also important, its richly colored plates illustrating interiors that have since been lost to demolition or reconstruction. William Henry Pyne (1767-1843) showed an early aptitude for art, studied at the school of Henry Pars, and then embarked on a career that found early and substantial success. Although Pyne is remembered best as an artist, he was also a talented writer, and, as indicated by DNB, he did the text here, not the drawings, which were "supplied by Mackenzie, Nash, Pugin, Stephanoff, and others." The carefully rendered and detailed illustrations are sometimes heightened with gold, and they are given a convincing depth and an overall vividness that are consistently pleasing from plate to plate. (Unfortunately, their very beauty has led to the breaking up of many of these volumes to allow for the sale of individual plates.) Ours is one of an unspecified number of copies that Abbey tells us were "issued on large and thick paper, the average page measurement being 16 x 12 inches"--a good two inches taller than regular copies. Our binder John Mackenzie may have been trained by the firm of Staggemeier & Welcher, and he is known to have employed Joseph Zaehnsdorf from 1840-42. According to Howe, he described himself in a circular issued in 1840 as "Bookbinder to their late Majesties King George Ivth & King William Ivth," as a binder with 40 years of experience, and as a craftsman with one of the largest collections of brass binding tools in London. His work is of very high quality, as the present volumes attest; the Schiff collection had two of his bindings (see items #65 and 66 in "British Signed Bindings"). According to the tipped-on note, the present set originally belonged to George III's daughter, Princess Mary, Duchess of Gloucester and Edinburgh (1776-1857), Queen Victoria's favorite aunt. It was given by the duchess to Princess Dorothea von Lieven (1785-1857), wife of the Russian ambassador to Great Britain, whose diplomatic and political skills were so considerable that she was referred to as the "second ambassador." The princess bequeathed our set to Paul de Noailles, 6th Duke of Noailles (1802-85). Complete sets of Pyne are still regularly encountered, but Large Paper copies like the present one are far less common--and those in really excellent condition and in fine decorative contemporary bindings are becoming more and more rare. And this is not to mention our mahogany box, which gives the present already very special copy unique appeal.

Numerierung der Zeit. Bei Gabriel Thouin (* 1747 in Paris; † 9. März 1829), einem der damals berühmtesten Gartenarchitekten Europas und einem der Hauptvertreter des frühen Landschaftsgartens, den man in Frankreich Jardin romantique nannte, lernte Peter Joseph Lenné im Rahmen seiner Ausbildung zum Gartenbaumeister 1811-12 die typische Gestaltung (per Kurvenlineal entworfene weitbogig geschwungene Wege und hosenartige Wegekreuzungen, Ausgreifen des Planungsraumes auf ganze Landschaften, Einbindung von Industriearchitekturen und anderen vorhandenen Bauten, Verwendung exotischer Pflanzen). Sie beeinflusste die späteren Arbeiten Lennés und seiner Schüler („Lenné-Meyer-Schule") deutlich (nach wikipedia). Die Tafeln mit Abbildungen verschiedener Garten- und Parkanlagen, im Rande jeweils angeordnet architektonischen Zierelemente (Brücken, Pavillons, Gartengebäude), gartentechnischen Details (Labyrinte, Heckenformen) sowie verschiedene Ausstattungselemente (Brunnen, Schaukeln, Gondeln, Denkmäler und Gartenmöbel). Die Pläne, zunächst bewusst monochrom gehalten, erlebten weitere Auflagen, wobei erst in der letzten von 1838 die Lithografien teilweise zur Steigerung der dekorativen Wirkung von Hand koloriert wurden. Die vorliegende Mappe enthält die unbeschnittenen breitrandigen Pläne, die aus Kostengründen in 10 Lieferungen herausgegeben wurden, in Losebattform in den Original Mantelbögen. Solche ungebundenen Exemplare des seltenen Werkes sind selbst unvollständig kaum zu finden, gelegentlich tauchen Pläne als Grafikangebot im Handel auf, da die einzelnen Pläne sehr dekorativ präsentiert werden können. G.T. débute sa carrière au service des Terrasses de la Ville de Paris, et dessine des jardins à ses heures de liberté. C'est ainsi qu'il fait des propositions pour l'aménagement du Jardin du Roi à la demande de son frère André, qui en est devenu lui-même le jardinier-chef. Engagé dans la Garde Nationale dès le début de la Révolution, il devient, en 1812, inspecteur des Champs-Élysées, des avenues des Invalides et du Champ de Mars. Durant toute cette période, il dessine des projets de jardins, et quelquefois en assure la plantation. Après avoir été inspecteur principal du jardin de l'Archevêché, il publie, en 1819, son premier et unique ouvrage, Les Plans raisonnés pour toutes sortes de jardins, qu'il présente comme le résultat de quarante années de recherche et d'expérience. Brunet V, 842-43 Ornamentstichkat. 3483 (beide Ausg. 1828) Sprache: fra Mappe beschabt, berieben und leicht bestoßen. Bänder überwiegend gerissen. Mantelbögen der Lieferungen angestaubt, m. kl.

        Ernst Hasse (1819-1860). Der idyllische Einklang. Aquarell über Federzeichnung

      - Ernst Hasse (1819 Erfurt-Dresden 1860). Der idyllische Einklang. 1847 . Aquarell über Federzeichnung auf Papier. -- Beschreibung: -- Aquarell über Federzeichnung auf Papier. unten rechts signiert und datiert: "E Hasse inv. 1847.". -- Größe/Size: -- 19,2 x 28,8 cm. -- Zustand: -- Sehr guter Zustand. -- Weitere Beschreibung: -- Das vorliegende Aquarell kann als paradigmatisch für Ernst Hasses Kunst gelten. Es vereint in sich die prägenden Elemente seines Lehrers Ludwig Richter und verweist bereits auf seinen späteren künstlerischen Schwerpunkt, die Tiermalerei. Das romantische Stimmungsbild, das Hasse hier evoziert, wird durch die harmonische Eintracht von Mensch, Tier und Natur getragen. Diese ergibt sich durch eine regelrechte Bildkette, die die verschiedenen Gruppen untereinander verbindet. Links im Vordergrund lagert eine kleine Schafherde, weitestgehend für sich und sich selbst genügend. Das weiter rechts stehende Schaf allerdings durchbricht die Isolation und leitet durch seine Kopfwendung den Blick hinüber zu der durch einen Fluss getrennten Personengruppe. Auch diese bleibt in ihrem eigenen Bereich im Zwiegespräch vertieft. Lediglich das Kleinkind, das eine Ziege füttert, offenbart die Zugehörigkeit zum gleichen Lebensraum. Der Blick des Betrachters folgt schließlich dem kleinen Weg den Hügel hinauf und findet dort den einsamen Hirten mit seiner Kuhherde, vertieft in den träumerischen Fernblick auf die weite Landschaft. Auf diese Weise schließt sich der Kreis von den in der Natur lagernden Tieren, hin zu den Menschen und ihrer Teilhabe an dieser Umgebung. Somit wird hier stärker als in vielen anderen Blättern der romantische Lebenszusammenhang deutlich. Hier grenzt sich Hasse auch von seinem Lehrer ab, denn wo Richter den Menschen und seine Einnistung in der Natur und seine Suche nach einem Lebensraum zum Thema wählt, da richtet Hasse den Fokus bereits deutlich auf die Tierwelt. Doch auch Hasses Arbeitsweise lässt sich in diesem wichtigen Aquarell vortrefflich studieren. Für ihn war die Linie das bestimmende Gestaltungselement seiner Kunst. Die farbige Überarbeitung diente mehr der Akzentuierung und so scheint in allen Partien der Strich der Feder markant durch die dünn aufgetragene Aquarellierung hindurch. Auch hierin unterscheidet sich Hasse von Richter, denn der Ältere hat zwar auch die Aquarellfarbe sanft und in Verbindung mit der Linie aufgetragen. Doch bei Hasse wird die Federlinie selbst zu einem Tonwert, wie besonders in der Wasseroberfläche auf unserem Blatt zu erkennen ist. Durch diese Betonung erhält das Aquarell eine bestechende Klarheit. Dass Hasse aber auch das subtile Farbspiel mit der reinen Aquarellfarbe meisterhaft beherrschte, präsentiert er in den duftigen Partien im Himmel und im Hintergrund. af . [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      [Keene, N.H.]: intending to visit the Western Country, 1819. 24mo. Contemporary half calf and paper boards, recased. Boards slightly worn. Wear and staining along foredge of several text leaves, else overall internally quite clean. Good. In a cloth chemise and slipcase, gilt label. A rare little guide in which Miller collects information on the newly settled territories in the West from travellers, military officers, Indian agents, and correspondents, to benefit prospective emigrants. "Miller gives quite a complete picture of the status of the different Ohio towns as they were in 1816, and of the different routes to the East. He gives the same kind of information for the country to the West and North, but settlement thus far had been so slight that there was not much to report. It is an excellent guide, giving a good contemporary account of the Old Northwest and especially Ohio, and Sabin's characterization 'A little volume of much rarity but of little use' though correct as to rarity, is thoroughly misleading otherwise..." - Streeter, describing a different issue. A very rare work. Thomson had only seen one copy, and it was also lacking the table, as in this copy.

        FLORE MÉDICALE

      Paris, 1819. Contemporary three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spines gilt, leather labels. Corners rubbed. Light foxing. Very good. An interesting and beautifully illustrated series, with plates produced during the great period of French color printing. The title appears to have been loosely interpreted, and consequently the work was expanded to include grapes, melon, palms, pineapple, pomegranates, bananas, and other interesting but non-medicinal plants. François Pierre Chaumeton (1775-1819) was a French army physician, pharmacist, and botanist. He worked on several notable medical publications beyond this one. Fellow botanist Jean Louis Marie Poiret (1755-1834) collaborated with him on this project, perhaps accounting for its wide-ranging scope, far beyond mere medical botany. The detailed illustrations were executed by Ernestine Panckoucke and Pierre Jean François Turpin, both gifted botanical illustrators. Indeed, Turpin is considered one of the greatest botanical and floral illustrators of his time. Sets often lack some of the plates, and it is difficult to find complete. A handsome and important production.

        Original Sketchbooks of Embroidery Design (4 Volumes)

      1819. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. A stunning set of early 19th century embroidery designs. Unsure of whether of American origin or outside the United State. Nevertheless, a very professional set of sketchbooks from individual(s) who appear to be a master of the subject. Four original sketchbooks with original, hand-drawn embroidery designs that fill each notebook. Many designs are on folding pages. Three sketchbooks are quarto size: full black leather volume has a gold and blind embossed border design to front and rear boards, scuffing, front board detached but present with previous owner's name, "Barbara Balguy(?)" and date "1819" on verso of first free endpaper; full red leather sketchbook with five raised bands to spine, 1-1/2" of the leather at the head of the spine is missing, considerable scuffing and wear, clean within, name "Mary Anne Lyons" written in red ink on the front pastedown, numerous designs on separate sheets laid in, many sketches actually have a black ink watercolor wash, three sketches of figures on horses in what appears to be Colonial garb on last three pages of volume; quarter leather sketchbook with red leather spine with large losses along spine, boards split from spine but still held intact by binding cords, red leather label on front board titled "Patterns," many folding patterns and loose patterns laid in. One octavo sketchbook with no cover, simply the bound signatures with a string tie, does not appear to ever have been bound filled with what appear to be border designs, some laid in and many folding.

Adams fu allievo di J. Hill e nel 1805, spostatosi a Londra conobbe J. Cunningham Sauders che aveva appena aperto un ospedale per la cura dell'occhio. Adams assistette cosi' a molte operazioni oftalmiche e dopo qualche anno divenne chirurgo a Exeter. Di grande interesse la presenza della bella dedica ad Assalini, con riferimenti ad un paziente e a un'operazione oftalmica. La firma a questa importante dedica non e' ben identificabile, non sembrando quella di Adams. Sicuramente puo' trattarsi di altro oculista di rilievo, essendo in rapporti con l'Assalini.  ITA

        James Monroe Signed Missouri Territory Land Grant to War of 1812 Veteran

      Washington, D.C. 1819 - Partly Printed Document Signed as President. Land grant to Stephen Taylor, countersigned by Josiah Meigs as Commissioner of the General Land Office. Washington, D.C., March 3, 1819, 1 p., 13 x 8 1/2 in. On vellum. Verso with Stephen Taylor Manuscript Document Signed transferring the land to William Turner. April 22, 1819. With a collection of letters to William and Peter Turner of Newport, R.I., from 1821, 1840 and 1859, re. subsequent sales and payment on this land. Stephen Taylor is granted 160 acres for his service in the War of 1812. With a highly decorative engraved masthead, "Militi Forti Et Fideli," of a seated Columbia handing a deed to a soldier and his young son. Partial Transcript"Know Ye, That, in pursuance of the Acts of Congress appropriating and granting Land to the late Army of the United States, passed on and since the sixth day of May, 1812, Stephen Taylor, having deposited in the General Land Office a Warrant in his favour, numbered 20852 is granted unto the said Stephen Taylor late a Corporal in Towsons Corps of Light Artillery a certain Tract of Land, containing one hundred and Sixty Acres."James Monroe (1758-1831). Fifth President of the U.S. (1817-25). Born in Westmoreland County, Virginia. Served in Revolution, entered politics, U.S. Senator (1790-94) and governor of Virginia (179901802). In 1803, he helped negotiate the Louisiana Purchase for President Jefferson. Monroe served as Madison's Secretary of State (1811-17) and Secretary of War (1814-15). Elected President in 1816. Re-elected almost unanimously in 1820 with 231 out of 232 electoral votes. His (and his party's) ascendancy was heralded as the "Era of Good Feelings." His two terms are remembered for the recognition of the new Latin American republics and his Monroe Doctrine (written by John Quincy Adams). In his Annual Message of 1823, Monroe responded to European threats of encroachment on Latin American land by declaring that the American continents, "by the free and independent condition which they have assumed and maintain, are henceforth not to be considered as subjects for future colonization by any European Power." Monroe could do little to back up these statements and it was not until the presidency of Theodore Roosevelt that this policy was given military muscle.Josiah Meigs was President of Franklin College before becoming Commissioner of the General Land Office. He later was one of the original incorporators and trustees of Columbian College (now George Washington University), and a professor of experimental philosophy.Wikipedia writes of General Nathaniel Towson, whose corps Taylor fought in:"While commanding relatively few artillery pieces, his batteries' discharges were so numerous that his position during the Siege of Fort Erie became known as "Towson's Lighthouse". During the War of 1812, Nathan commanded artillery during many confrontations, including the Battle of Fort George, the Battle of Stoney Creek, the Battle of Queenston Heights, the Battle of Chippawa, the Battle of Lundy's Lane, and the Siege of Fort Erie."

      - Aquarell, über Bleistift, auf Papier mit Wasserzeichen: Turkey Mill J Whatman 1819, verso Nachlaßstempel. 25,7:36,4 cm. – Verso: Skizzen von Architekturdetails und Laubwerk. Eisenlohr war der Sohn eine evangelischen Pfarrers und Dekans in Freiburg im Breisgau und studierte von 1821-1824 in Freiburg bei Christoph Arnold (1779-1844), dann an der Bauschule von Friedrich Weinbrenner (1766-1826) in Karlsruhe. Italien bereiste er 1826-1828 ehe er Baueleve und 1830 Baupraktikant wurde. Seit 1832 arbeitete er als Lehrer an der Polytechnischen Oberschule in Karlsruhe, 1839 wurde er dort Professor für Konstruktionslehre, 1853 Baurat und Vorstand der Bauschule des Polytechnikums. Zu seinen Schülern gehörte Heinrich Lang (1824-1893). Eine Freundschaft verbanden ihn und seine Frau Wilhelmine, geb. von Biedenfeld (1801-1882), mit dem Konstanzer Maler Friedrich Moosbrugger (1804-1830). Thieme-Becker hebt bereits Eisenlohrs hervorragenden Zeichnungen aus dem Schwarzwald hervor, von denen einige die Graphische Sammlung des Städel Museum, Frankfurt, besitzt. Das im Wasserzeichen enthaltene Datum 1819 deutet darauf hin, daß unser Aquarell zu diesen Schwarzwaldlandschaften gehört und eine qualitätvolle Arbeit des jungen Künstlers ist, die aus der Studienzeit von 1821-1824 in Freiburg bei Christoph Arnold darstellt.

        Wilhelm Meyerheim (1815 Danzig-Berlin 1882). Preussens Königspaa, Litho

      - Wilhelm GEORGY (1819 Magdeburg-Weimar 1887), Gotische Kirchenruine, Bleistift -- Technik: -- Bleistift mit Weißhöhung auf Papier, unten rechts signiert: "W. Georgy". -- Maße: -- 17,1 x 12,1 cm -- Zustand: -- Sehr guter Zustand, Papier minimalst gebräunt, Bleiweiß im Himmel minimal oxidiert. -- Beschreibung: -- Zur Zeit der Romantiker, allen voran Caspar David Friedrich, war eine gotische Ruine das Sinnbild der Vergänglichkeitund spiegelte in Verbindung mit einer Landschaft und einer menschlichen Figur die philosophischen Ansichten derEpoche wieder. Als Wilhelm Georgy in dieser Zeichnung an die romantische Tradition anknüpft, liegt die Zeit seiner großen Vorbilderbereits eine Generation zurück. So scheint sich auch die Botschaft seiner Kunst geändert zu haben. Während Friedrich und Blechen oft reale Ruinen zum Thema ihrer Werke machen (wie die Ruine auf dem Oybin oderdas Kloster Eldena Eldena), handelt es sich bei der Darstellung Georgys um eine Fantasiearchitektur. Hinter denmächtigen Steinen eröffnet sich dem Betrachter ein Blick auf eine gotische Kirchenruine, die auf einer leichten Anhöheliegt. Von ihr führt eine verschlungene Treppe nach unten, die zwei Mönche hinab steigen. Aus einem großenPortalbogen flutet hell das Sonnenlicht, ohne dass es die Sicht in das das Kircheninnere frei geben würde. Die architektonischen Elemente werden hier beliebig im Dienste eines pittoresken Effekts eingesetzt. Den beidenMönchsfiguren verleiht der Künstler sogar einen gewissen märchenhaften Charakter. In der von ihm geschaffenen Weltwerden keine romantischen Dilemmata erörtert. Vielmehr soll hier das menschliche Bedürfnis nach Unbeschwertheitgestillt werden. -- [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Historic, Military, and Naval Anecdotes, Of Personal Valour, Bravery, and particular Incidents which occurred to the Armies of Great Britian and her Allies, in the last long-contested War, terminating with the Battle of Waterloo. Under the Patronage of, and Dedicated with Permission to His Royal Highness the Commander in Chief. London: Edited and Published by, and engraved under the direction of Edward Orme, 1819. First Edition, earliest issue and complete, with the plates watermarked "Whatman 1812" and "Whatman 1816," and the text watermarked "Whatman 1812. A scarce tall copy of the first issue, lacking rules to title-page and with "1819" at title-page foot. Folio (13 1/2 x 10 1/2 inches; 343 x 267 mm.). [4], 94, [4] pp. Forty hand-colored aquatint plates, chiefly by Dubourg after Atkinson, Manskirsch, J.H. Clark, W. Heath, G. Scharf, Dubourg and Rigaud. Some light offsetting from the plates onto the text, occasional pale, mainly marginal spotting, a little heavier at the end.Contemporary full straight-grained maroon morocco with gilt decorated border and inner blind-stamped frame. Smooth spine with gilt decorated compartments and gilt rules and lettering. Decorative gilt-ruled turn-ins. All edges gilt, yellow coated endpapers. With the bookplate of Joel Spitz on the front paste-down. Lower joint very slightly cracked but firm. A near fine copy. Housed in a fleece-lined red buckram slipcase. Provenance: acquired at Parke-Bernet, 1944. In his address to the reader, Orme describes his patriotic aim as being "to see recorded and embellished by the Fine Arts, those particular exploits of personal valour -- together with their attendant dangers, difficulties, and privations, the surmounting of which has shed a lustre upon the British Name, unexampled in the history of former ages." While well-represented at auction, this appears to be the only copy to come to market within the last thirty-six years to possess the earliest recorded watermarks and in tall format."A handsome volume... nor could one desire a finer record of heroic deeds" (Prideaux)"There is another issue of the book recognizable by two rules below 'Battle of Waterloo' on the title, and without the date at the foot. According to Tooley the undated issue carries text paged to '98,' and the dated only to page '94.' This is incorrect, all 98 pages being present in complete copies, but it should be noted that pages 95 to 98 are without pagination in the dated issue."Coupled with the fact that dated copies carry early watermarks and that the undated ones do not, it would appear reasonable to assume that the early state of the book had dated title-page such as the above" (Abbey).Tooley 353.

This work is one of the more significant contemporary accounts of convict discipline, and is considered an essential document of the Macquarie era, not least as it prompted Macquarie's own response.Henry Bennet (1777-1836) was a British parliamentarian who began a crusade for penitentiary reform that culminated in 1816. His "efforts 'to diminish the sum of human misery' adorn the history of English criminal law. No retributory institution, prison, hulk, penal colony, or penitentiary adequately combined punishment with reformation: he and his select committees exposed them, but to little avail" (ODB). The scope of his inquiry was both broad and enlightened, and included the conflation of political prisoners with felons and the plight of insane persons. Nor surprisingly, the penal colony at New South Wales was attacked as a dumping ground. Bennet writes in his Letter to Viscount Sidmouth 'to get rid of the miserable objects of legal punishment constituted the sole occupation of these administrators of our penal law; and when the grave closed on some, and the distance of half the globe prevented the cries of the others of the victims we banished from our shores from being heard in England, these artificers of death, moral and physical, were satisfied the law had taken its course?'Bennet was manipulated and sometimes misinformed by enemies of Macquarie (including the sanctimonious and vitriolic 'flogging parson' Samuel Marsden). Nonetheless, his Letter to Viscount Sidmouth reflects deep contemporary concern with the problematic role of New South Wales as a place of both punishment and reform.A fine copy from notable Australian collections.

        Original watercolour painting depicting a dolphin (Dauphin Rhinoceros)

      At sea: aboard the "Uranie", 1819. In fine original condition.. Watercolour, 245 x 305 mm., framed. Fine original watercolour by Louis de Freycinet's expedition artist Jacques Arago. It is signed and dated lower right, and there is the customary Arago line border in pen; a reference to the official published work "Voyage de l'Uranie, Poissons, pl.13" appears to the left.The scientific atlases that are part of the official account of the Uranie voyage are splendid. The natural history specimens recorded and collected on this voyage were extensive and forty-five of the birds (among which were three new genera), more than thirty reptiles and perhaps one hundred and twenty fish were entirely new to science.Jacques Arago (1790-1855) joined the Freycinet expedition on the Uranie in 1817 and was not only the most accomplished of the artists who made the voyage, but was one of the most intriguing of all the early voyagers. The wonders of the long expedition from 1817-1820 stayed with him for the rest of his life, and he continued writing and drawing about the Pacific right up until he lost his sight. In 1822 he published his own well-regarded account of the voyage, "Promenade Autour du Monde" which was translated into English and published in 1823. Over the ensuing decades he wrote many more differing versions of this interesting account.The date of 1819 on this watercolour identifies that it was drawn by Jacques Arago during the passage from the Caroline Islands via the Marianas to the Sandwich Islands; the Uranie arrived in Kealakekua Bay in Hawaii on 8 August and stayed in the islands for a month before setting out for Sydney, where they arrived on 18 November, staying until Christmas. The richness of the marine discoveries made by the scientists and artists over the long voyage ensured that the atlas of these discoveries, prepared by Freycinet after the expedition's return to France, remains one of the most beautiful of all Pacific illustrated books. Provenance: until the 1960s in Freycinet family ownership, subsequently in a private collection.
