        Tempio di Romolo in oggi S. Teodoro

      Roma 1819 - LE ANTICHITA ROMANE La serie delle vedute di Antichità Romane, composta di 101 tavole, viene realizzata con il ricavato della e vendita dei rami della Raccolta di cinquanta principali vedute di antichità tratte dai scavi fatti in Roma in questi ultimi tempi divise in 40 vedute edita nel 1817. Con quest’opera, per il numero delle tavole e per il formato prescelto, di grandi dimensioni, l’incisore vuole affermarsi come figura di primo piano nel mondo artistico romano. In quest’opera Rossini si cimenta in un diretto confronto con il suo predecessore G. B. Piranesi che costituisce un punto di riferimento per un incisore di vedute antiche, per quanto riguarda l’originalità e l’ampiezza della riproduzione. Il Rossini, oltre a sottolineare la sua influenza nella scelta del titolo e di alcune didascalie, usa frequentemente le medesime inquadrature e identici punti di vista del maestro veneziano. Altro elemento riconducibile a Piranesi è l’uso della luce e dei forti contrasti chiaroscurali. In queste tavole raggiunge una certa padronanza del mezzo tecnico che gli permette di cimentarsi in inquadrature più complesse nelle quali si nota un’organizzazione spaziale molto articolata. Nelle tavole è frequente il ricorso al taglio diagonale della veduta, consentendogli una più ampia possibilità di graduare i chiaroscuri in profondità. Tuttavia essendo l’opera composta da molte tavole presenta una certa discontinuità ed è possibile riscontrare in alcune di esse qualche incertezza nella impostazione prospettica ed alcune durezze nel segno. Rimanendo fedele alla tradizione corrente, la scelta dei soggetti operata dal Rossini non introduce nessuna novità; sono infatti rappresentati tutti i più importanti monumenti e luoghi archeologici di Roma. Elementi di novità sono sottolineati dalla registrazione puntuale dei lavori di indagine e di scavo intrapresi in quegli anni che dalla originalità delle inquadrature. Di particolare interesse da un punto di vista documentario sono le ultime quattro incisioni relative alla distruzione della Basilica di San Paolo fuori le mura, in seguito all’incendio del 15 luglio 1823. La volontà di voler animare le vedute, restituendo il monumento al suo contesto storico e la propria inadeguatezza nel campo della figura porta Rossini ad una collaborazione con Bartolomeo Pinelli, incisore romano, interprete e illustratore del costume e della vita popolare; a cui si devono le figure e i gruppi caratteristici che corredano le vedute. Pinelli in alcuni casi, riprende i motivi tratti dalle sue precedenti raccolte di Costumi pittoreschi romani. ROMAN ANTIQUITIES The series of views Antichità Romane, made of 101 plates, was realized with the proceeds of the sale of the plates used for Raccolta di cinquanta principali vedute di antichità tratte dai scavi fatti in Roma in questi ultimi tempi divided in 40 views, published in 1817. This is the work with which the artist wanted to become one of the most important artists in the Roman cultural life; we can state that if we consider the size of the work and the subject he choose. In this work Rossini tested himself with his predecessor, G. B. Piranesi, who was considered as a point of reference when it came to ancient views and originality. Rossini, was deeply influenced by Piranesi, as it can be seen in the title, the legends, the same points of views and framing. Another important element he took from Piranesi is the use of light and the contrast of chiaroscuro. In these plates Rossini reached the higher mastery of the technique, realizing also extremely particular framings and a new and complex organization of the space. In the plates quite common is the diagonal view of the subject, which gave him the possibility to elaborate more the chiaroscuro. However, since the work is made of many plates, it is quite discontinuous and some of the plates present some indecision in the perspective formulation and a little harshness in the mark. Always following the tradition of his time, Ross

        Eigenh. Schriftstück mit U. O. O. u. D.

      1819. 4 SS. 8vo. Faltbrief. An Auguste Anschütz (1819-1895): "Endlich meine liebe, beste Gustel komme ich dazu deinen lieben Brief zu beantworten, der mir große, große Freude gemacht hat. Du glaubst nicht welch' Vergnügen mir jede Zeile von dir macht, selbst wenn sie nicht an mich gerichtet ist, denn in jedem Wort spricht sich dein gutes, unverdorbenes, kindliches Gemüth aus, und ohne dir zu schmeicheln muß ich sagen, daß, wenn du dich gehen läßt, du höchst liebenswürdig in deinen Briefen bist. Ich bin der Mutter auch immer sehr dankbar wenn sie mir etwas von dir mittheilt, und dies geschah erst gestern an dem Geburtstag deines Vaters, den wir sehr vergnügt und angenehm verbrachten. Deiner wurde innigst gedacht, und alle möglichen Pläne gefaßt, um deinen Bescuh zu feyern und dir alle Gattungen Vergnügen zu bereiten [...]". - Die in Hamburg geborene Schauspielerin nahm Unterricht bei Ludwig Tieck und debütierte 1825 am Hoftheater in Dresden. Nach Gastspielen in Prag, Hamburg und 1828 am Wiener Burgtheater erlangte sie ihren ersten großen Erfolg 1829 als Gretchen in Goethes "Faust". "Nach Gastspielen in Berlin und Wien gehörte sie von 1830 bis 33 und seit 1835 als Nachfolgerin Sophie Schröders dem Ensemble des Burgtheaters an. Rettich hatte durch ihre Freundschaft mit der Erzherzogin Sophie Einfluß auf Theater und Hof in Wien und verhalf Friedrich Halm durch ihre Darstellung der Griseldis zu seinem Erfolg. In ihrem Salon verkehrten u. a. Eduard von Bauernfeld, Franz Grillparzer, Friedrich Hebbel, Heinrich Laube und Adalbert Stifter. Rettich gilt neben Sophie Schröder und Charlotte Wolter als dritte bedeutende Burgschauspielerin des 19.Jahrhunderts" (DBE).

        Autograph letter signed ('J. Cartwright'), to (? his publisher) Mr. Cleary of Findon in Sussex.

      Leamington, 11 July [Recipient's note 'Should be Augst'] 1819. 4to., 2pp., integral address leaf, postal markings, small tears where opened, recipient's endorsement, slight trace of former hinge. In very good state of preservation and readily legible. A fine letter by the 'Father of Reform', John Cartwright M.P. (1740-1824), political reformer and pamphleteer, reporting that he has been indicted 'respecting the business at Birmingham' which was fabricated against him in London and for which he, Wooler and others were arraigned before the grand jury in Warwick; nevertheless assuring him that he expects his bail will be pledged the following day, and that on Sunday he had time to make his escape to Leamington and finish a letter to the Prince Regent for delivery to Carlton House with a copy of his Bill bound in blue morocco ('... My letter to the Prince was sent to the Black Dwarf, >wherefore it will probably appear tomorrow. To have thought of writing that letter, which applied in no small degree to the attack on me, I esteem one of the fortunate events of my life; for an indictment of me while I was writing it, was the last thing I dreamed of ...'). Letters by John Cartwright are rare in the market (no letters by him are recorded as having been sold in American Book Prices Current>). The present letter also seems to have been unknown to his niece, F.D. Cartwright, as it is not mentioned in her Life and Correspondence> (1826) in which she discusses at length the circumstances surrounding the subject of Cartwright's letter. [op. cit. pp.163 et seq.] Cartwright was a powerful advocate of universal manhood suffrage, parliamentary and army reform and the abolition of slavery. 'Despite declining an invitation from John Knight, the founder of the first Hampden Club in Lancashire, to address a meeting at St. Peter's Fields, Manchester, Cartwright did accept the crowd's thanks, at a monster open-air meeting of the Birmingham Union in 1819, an action which led to his indictment, together with Thomas Wooler and three others, for sedition. Cartwright again attracted attention on 16 August 1819 when, after escaping the carnage of the yeomanry charge at 'Peterloo', he was called to answer his charges. Finally, in Warwick on 29 May 1821, he was convicted of sedition at the age of eighty-one, and when Mr Justice Bayley refused his request for imprisonment, Cartwright paid his fine of £100, happily noting each gold coin was a good sovereign ... A landed eighteenth-century gentleman, Cartwright transcended his background in the early decades of the nineteenth century and helped lay the foundation for the modern notion of political inclusion'. [Rory T. Cornish, in the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography>]. The book described in this letter as being sent to the Prince Regent was presumably his Bill of Rights and Liberties; or an Act for a Constitutional Reform of Parliament> (1817). The letter's recipient would appear to be T. Cleary, publisher of Cartwright's English Constitution Produced and Illustrated> (1823), a work admired by Thomas Jefferson.

Partly written in response to an anonymous pamphlet entitled Facts Illustrative Of The Treatment Of Napoleon Bonaparte which had attempted to vindicate the actions of Governor Lowe in relation to allegations against him made by O'Meara. O'Meara had refused to pass information to Lowe regarding Napoleon, whom he attended as physician at St. Helena. Lowe insisted that O'Meara be dismissed from his post, and this was effected when independent evidence of O'Meara's intrigues reached Lord Bathurst. When O'Meara sent a letter to the Admiralty instinuating that Napoleon's life was not safe in Lowe's hands, his name was stricken from the list of naval surgeons..

Nach 1889 verließ er seine Heimat und gelangte über Brüssel, Aachen und Köln nach Frankfurt am Main, wo er bis zu seinem Tode leben sollte. Zunächst ging er hier in die Lehre des bekannten Verlegers J.G. Prestel (1739-1808), für den er auch Vorlagen nach Werken alter Meister für dessen druckgraphische Reproduktionen lieferte. Andere Themen waren zeitgenössischen Inhalts, wie Genreszenen aus den Napoleon. Kriegen, oder Ansichten mittelalterlicher Burgruinen und Stadtbefestigungen. Nach 1800 konnte er sich beim heimischen Publikum mit seinen Landschaften der Umgebung einen Namen machen. Überdies nahm seine zunehmend vielfältige druckgraphische Produktion einen bedeutenden Platz in seinem Gesamtschaffen ein.

        The History Of The Rebellion And Civil Wars In England.

      Oxford: Clarendon Press,, 1819. To which is added, an Historical View of the Affairs in Ireland. 6 volumes, octavo (213 x 130 mm). Contemporary polished calf, spines gilt in compartments, twin red and maroon morocco labels, 3-line blind frames enclosing gilt supralibros of the Hulme bequest to covers, marbled edges. Cowper Hall book labels to front pastedowns, ownership inscription "E. N. Bownas, Aug. 21st 1947" to front pastedowns or free endpapers. A few very mild scuffs to covers, small chip to fore edge of vol. 2 rear board, light spotting to endleaves and very occasionally to text-leaves, mainly in the margins, newspaper clippings tipped to vol. 1 front pastedown relating to the sale of the contents of Carleton Hall in 1947, sheet of thick paper pasted over the free endpaper, these flaws minor: an excellent, bright set. A very pleasing library set of Clarendon's History, which was "the most sophisticated and finely balanced history yet written in English" (ODNB) when first published in Oxford in 1702-3, and remained a staple of all libraries for long after. This set was in the library of the Carleton-Cowper family at Carleton Hall, near Penrith, Cumbria: the house and its contents were auctioned off by Major G. T. M. Carleton Cowper in 1947, and the building is now occupied by the Cumbria Constabulary.

        Representación del Señor Rafael D. Mérida, al Congreso de Venezuela. Instalado en la ciudad de Santo Tomas de Angostura, el año de 1819, la que fué mandada archivar por resolucion de dicho congreso.

      En la Imprenta de Lawalle jóven, 1819. Rafael D. Mérida (1762-1828) began his career as a bureaucrat in Caracas, participated in the early patriot movement, served as minister of Justice under Bolívar in 1813-14, but turned against the Liberator in 1816. In his Representación, Mérida recapitulates Bolívar's errors, military and political, in a finely honed philippic. He is no less kind to Miranda, whom he nearly accuses of treason. Palau states that this piece was actually printed in the U.S., and the paper on which it is printed would certainly substantiate that claim, as does the fact that it is held by the Library Company of Philadelphia, famous for its collection of Spanish-language books printed in Philadelphia with false imprint information. An extremely rare piece of Bolívariana. => This copy belonged to one of Mérida's family.

        Manuscript map of "Property Situated on Norfolk Street belonging to Thos. Gardner, Esq." signed by Stephen Ludlam, City Surveyor, pen, ink and colors on paper

      New York 1819 - 1 vols. Image 23 x 12 inches, framed. Manuscript Map of a Block in Old New York, 1819. Mr. Gardner's block, on Manhatten's Lower East Side, is bounded by Norfolk, Stanton, Suffolk and Rivington Streets, and consists of 32 numbered parcels of surveyed land, 16 fronting on Norfolk Street and 16 on Suffolk Street, each 25 feet wide and 100 feet deep. Four Norfolk Street parcels are tinted, evidently to indicate leases, as pencilled on these are the names Lawrence, Pessenger, and Tappen (2 parcels). (There were several prominent Tappens in New York at this time, and doubtless some obscure ones; we have not been able to determine which Tappen this might have been). Off Suffolk Street, diagonally across from Gardner's block, the words "Delancy's Farm" have been inked in, another familiar New York name, surviving in today's Delancy Street. An historic and interesting glimpse of Old New York. 1 vols. Image 23 x 12 inches, framed

        Report of the Case of the Trustees of Dartmouth College. [1819].

      1819 - First Report of the Landmark Dartmouth College Case [Trial]. [Dartmouth College Case]. Farrar, Timothy [1788-1874], Reporter. Report of the Case of the Trustees of Dartmouth College Against William H. Woodward: Argued and Determined in the Superior Court of Judicature of the State of New-Hampshire, November 1817. And on Error in the Supreme Court of the United States, February 1819. Portsmouth [NH]: Published by John W. Forster and West, Richardson, And Lord, Boston, [1819]. [iv], 406 pp. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5"). Recent period-style calf, blind fillets to boards, blind fillets and lettering piece to spine, endpapers renewed. Moderate toning to text, somewhat darker around margins, very faint dampstaining in a few places, light foxing to a few leaves. Small early owner signature to head of title page, brief early annotations to margins in a few places, interior otherwise clean. Ex-library. Two tiny instamps to foot of p. [iii]. A handsome copy. * Farrar's is the first published report of the landmark case involving the contract rights of corporations. With all the material related to the case, including the arguments of Webster and Wirt and the opinions of Chief Justice Marshall and Justices Story and Washington, and an appendix containing the texts of related documents. The New Hampshire legislature passed a bill in 1816 that revoked Dartmouth College's original charter and converted the college from a private to a state institution. The college challenged the constitutionality of this act in the New Hampshire Supreme Court without success, but the U.S. Supreme Court reversed the state's decision in a landmark opinion based on the contract clause of the Constitution (Article I, Section 10). "By construing the contract clause as a means of protecting corporate charters from state interventions, Marshall derived a significant limitation on state authority. As a result, various forms of private economic and social activity would enjoy security from state regulatory policy. Marshall thus encouraged, through constitutional sanction, the emergence of the relatively unregulated private, autonomous economic actor as the major participant in a liberal political economy that served the commonwealth by promoting enlightened self interest": Alfred F.

      , 1819. 1819. Fine. (HOKUSAI MANGA) Katsushika I-itsu [Denshin Kaishu] HOKUSAI MANGAJu^- hen. Edo: Kadomaruya, Bunsei 2 [1819]. 22.7 x 16.0 cm. String-bound Japanese-style, fukuro-toji. Original covers with brushed title. Though Nagoya-based Eirakuya To^shiro^ editions of the MANGA are quite common, the Edo issues by Kadomaruya are quite unusual. In addition, this is, of course, an early issue of volume ten, a book usually seen in late Edo-era, early Meiji versions. Volume ten concluded the series in its first iteration. With an 8 page Kadomaruya advertisement bound in at the back. The printing is good, at first glance it seems light, even worn but examination under a lens reveals fine detail soon lost in later printings. A bit of internal and external soiling and rubbing, there is significant worming and some rubbing damage beyond mere thumbing, BUT, such early issues as this have utterly disappeared from the marketplace and are highly prized.

Jahrhunderts stark anwachsende, englische illustrierte Reiseliteratur. Viele seiner Arbeiten wurden in illustrierten Reisebeschreibungen abgebildet.

Gurney was the only son of Joseph John Gurney of Earlham Hall, Norwich, Norfolk. At the age of ten he was sent to a private tutor at Leytonstone near the Epping Forest, where he met Henry Doubleday, and commenced his first natural history collection. From there he moved to the Friends' School at Tottenham, and whilst there met William Yarrell. At the age of seventeen he joined the family's banking business in Norwich. Gurney published a number of articles in The Zoologist on the birds of Norfolk. He also commenced a collection of birds of prey. In 1864 he published Part I. of his Descriptive Catalogue of this collection, and in 1872 he edited The Birds of Damara Land from the notes of his friend Charles John Andersson. Between 1875 and 1882 he produced a series of notes in The Ibis on the first volume of the Catalogue of Birds in the British Museum, and in 1884 brought out a List of Diurnal Birds of Prey, with References and Annotations. The archives of Cambridge University Museum of Zoology contains five volumes of correspondence between Alfred Newton and Gurney, who was a founding member of the Norfolk Naturalists Trust. For the last twenty years of his life he resided at the family's home at Northrepps, near Cromer. His son, John Henry Gurney Jr., was also an ornithologist, and his great great grandson, Henry Richard Gurney of Heggatt Hall has continued the family tradition. The southern African race of the black-necked grebe, Podiceps nigricollis gurneyi, was named by South African zoologist and author Austin Roberts in 1919 in honour of the father and son. John Henry Gurney Jr.'s daughter Agatha Gurney (18811937) married Sir Edward Ruggles-Brise, 1st Baronet.
