        Photograph of Edmond de Goncourt

      GONCOURT, Edmond de. Portrait for La Galerie Contemporaine by Nadar. Woodburytype print with artist's information printed on mount, matted and framed in polished dark wood. [Paris: Nadar, ND]. |~||~||~| |~||~||~||~||~| A visually arresting portrait of Edmond de Goncourt by famed portrait photographer Nadar (Gaspard-Felix Tournachon 1820-1910). "Nadar's notoriety in photography came after successful careers first in writing and publishing and then in caricature. Nadar's turn to portrait photography appears to be a natural progression from his work in caricature." "Galerie Contemporaine, stands out due to its ambitious scope, as well as for the quality of the photographic imagery it contained. Underpinned by a certain patriotic sentiment and a more sophisticated approach to celebrity, the subtitle Litteraire Artistique declares the work's focus of interest to be high art. In fact Galerie Contemporaine evolved into the most impressive set of celebrity portraits published in nineteenth-century France, forming a vital visual record of the leading figures who shaped public life, in science and politics as well as the arts, during the Second Empire and the emergent Third Republic."

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Dr. Börne").

      Frankfurt, 17. XII. 1820. - ½ S. 4to. Unpublizierter Brief an Johann Friedrich v. Cotta: "Ew. Hochwohlgeb. / Habe die Ehre anbei das Manuscr. zum 2ten Hefte der Wage zu überschicken. Ich wünsche das ganze Mscpt. auf dieses Heft verwendet zu sehen, auch wenn es mehr als die gewöhnlichen 3 Druckbögen betragen sollte. - Ich lege 50 Exempl. vom 1sten Hefte bei, und die Handlung mag vom neuen Hefte eben so viel zurückbehalten zum Debit. Von den abgesezten Exempl. erhält sie, wie verabredet 50 Pr. C. Rabatt. Es versteht sich dass dort auch das Heften (Broschieren) besorgt werde. - Gut wäre es, wenn die Verlagshandlung für Bekanntmachungen sorge, und überhaupt alles thue, was sie thun würde, wenn sie den Verlag schon wirklich übernommen hätte [.]". - Von Börnes "Wage" ("Eine Zeitschrift für Bürgerleben, Wissenschaft und Kunst") erschienen zwischen 1818 und 1821 in unregelmäßigen Abständen insgesamt 13 Hefte. Cotta hatte mit Börne vereinbart, Druck und Vertrieb zu übernehmen; der Plan sah zwei Bände jährlich bei 2000 fl. Honorar vor. Bis Ende des laufenden zweiten Bands (dessen zuletzt erschienenes erstes Heft das insgesamt neunte bildete) sollte Börne die Zeitschrift auf eigene Kosten weiterführen. Für Börne hätte dieses Arrangement mehrere Vorteile gehabt: er hätte die Druckkosten nicht vorschießen müssen, Cotta hätte für den Absatz gesorgt und insbesondere war die Württemberger Zensur deutlich liberaler (vgl. Börnes Brief an Jeannette Wohl v. 15. Nov. 1820, Smtl. Schr. IV, S. 325). Indessen lehnte Cotta, kaum hatte er Börnes Einsendungen näher studiert, "offenbar mit Rücksicht auf seine Beziehungen zur Wiener Staatskanzlei die offizielle Übernahme der 'Wage' ab, vermittelte aber den weiteren Verlag des Journals bei der mit seinem Hause verbundenen Druckerei Heinrich Laupp in Tübingen" (Smtl. Schr. V, S. 663). Obwohl die als Forum für einen "Kampf der Meinungen" projektierte "Wage" bis zuletzt weitgehend ein Einmannunternehmen des Herausgebers blieb, der praktisch alle Beiträge selber verfasste, "hatte sie dank der spitzen und angriffslustigen Feder Börnes trotzdem [Erfolg .] In die kurze Zeit des Erscheinens der 'Wage' fallen die Ermordung des Erfolgsdramatikers August von Kotzebue und als deren Folge die 'Karlsbader Beschlüsse' mit der nochmals verschärften Zensur und der Hetze gegen Liberale und Demokraten. Der dauernde Kampf mit der Zensur - Börne wurde einmal sogar für vierzehn Tage eingelocht - war denn auch der Grund für das Ende der Zeitschrift" (Th. Eh., Museumsgesellschaft Literaturhaus Zürich). - Gebräunt und mit Faltspuren; stellenweise geringe Randläsuren; am unteren Rand Cottas Antwortvermerk vom 22. Januar 1821. Biographische Notiz zum Verfasser von alter Sammlerhand im unteren Blattviertel. Nicht in: Börne, Sämtliche Schriften (hg. von I. und P. Rippmann), Bd. 4/5: Briefe (Darmstadt 1968); wäre in der Abt. IV (an verschiedene Empfänger) zwischen Nr. 49 und 49a einzureihen. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        La Minerve, vaisseau aerien destine aux descouvertes

      1820. ROBERTSON, Étienne Gaspard. La Minerve, vaisseau aërien destiné aux découvertes, et proposé à toutes les Académies de l'Europe... Seconde édition, revue et corrigée. 36, [4] pp. Illustrated with 4 woodcuts printed on 3 pages, one large folding engraved plate of the Minerve (490 x 331 mm), letter-keyed to text; and a woodcut title vignette. Small 8vo., 194 x 114 mm., bound in nineteenth-century brown calf gilt, sides panelled with triple fillet, spine richly gold tooled, morocco gilt lettering-pieces, turn-ins gilt, gilt edges, preserving original plain mauve front wrapper with author's presentation inscription. Paris ("Vienne: de l'imprimerie de S.-V. Degen, 1804. Réimprimé à Paris"): Hocquet, 1820. First and Only Edition of this facetious scheme to tour the world in a giant hot air balloon, a presentation copy from the author to an unidentified recipient. The Belgian physicist, painter, ex-priest and balloonist Étienne Gaspard Robertson (né Robert, 1763-1837) was best known to his contemporaries for his wildly popular magic lantern shows, "perhaps the most memorable phantasmagoria spectacles ever created" (Terpak, Devices of Wonder, p. 301). Robertson toured throughout Europe, marking his arrival in each new city by an attention-grabbing balloon ascent. Although he is credited with accomplishing the first balloon flight undertaken for purely scientific purposes, Robertson's own account of that flight, undertaken on June 18, 1803 with a music professor named Lloest, did little to counter his reputation as a charlatan. Not only did he exaggerate the altitude reached (supposedly 23,536 feet), but his report was also laced with whoppers, such as his claim that the reduced pressure of the high altitude had so enlarged the heads of the balloonists that Lloest could no longer wear his hat (Rolt, The Aeronauts, p. 186). The enterprise set forth in the present pamphlet was one of the first projects to involve a giant balloon. In theory, a giant balloon would provide a larger reservoir for gas and would thus make it possible to undertake very long flights. In fact, the technology of the time would have made such a balloon utterly unmanageable. La Minerve was one of the largest balloons every conceived; with a 160-foot diameter, it was designed to carry a load of 161,000 pounds, including 60 scientists, and was outfitted with ample sleeping space, a library, church, gymnasium or exercise area, water-closets, chemistry laboratory, music room, separate ladies' quarters, anchor, huge storage barrel for storing water, wine and foodstuffs, dinghy in the form of a smaller balloon attached to the main balloon, etc. The main hull was convertible into a ship in case of a water landing. All areas of the balloon, which was made of rubber-lined silk, were connected by silk ladders. "Although the grandiloquent dedication to [Alessandro] Volta would appear to have been written in all seriousness, the design of the La Minerve is of such baroque extravagance that the conclusion that Robertson was either mad or clowning is hard to resist…" (Rolt, pp. 137-8).

      ca 1820. Originalaquarelle (14,5 x 11, 5 cm) a. Karton ( 32 x 24 cm)montiert, OLwd-Mappe (ca. 1870) m. lsoen Blättern, Mappe felckig, Blätter papierbedignt etwas gebräunt - sonst tadell. Preis in CHF: 4500. Die Signaturen "Dinkel fec." meist in Tusche (ein Mal in Blei) am linken Bildrand unten. Aus der Sammlung einer Zürcher Grossbürgerfamilie. - Markus Dinkel wurde 1762 im damals noch zu Vorderösterreich gehörenden Eiken geboren. In den 1780er Jahren bewarb er sich in Zürich vergeblich um eine Ausbildung bei dem Landschaftsmaler Johann Heinrich Wüest. Erfolgreicher war Dinkel bei Johann Kaspar Lavater, der ihm einige Aufträge erteilte. Lavater, selbst mehrfach von Dinkel porträtiert, war mit den Leistungen und der Lebensführung von Dinkel nicht zufrieden. Unter einem Selbstporträt von Dinkel notierte er am 20. März 1790: "So vor dem Spiegel steht ein Gemisch von Talent / und von Leichtsinn".Ab 1793 siedelte Markus Dinkel dauerhaft nach Bern über. Zunächst kam er als Kolorist bei Gabriel Lory (1763-1840) unter. Als selbstständiger Künstler arbeitete er überwiegend als Porträtmaler für das lokale Patriziat und als Trachtenmaler für Reisende auf der Grand Tour, die sich von ihm mitunter in Schweizer Volkstrachten darstellen liessen. Bekannt ist ein Porträt der Josephine de Beauharnais in Berner Bauerntracht, das während ihres Aufenthaltes in der Schweiz 1810 entstanden sein dürfte. Ein beträchlicher Teil von Dinkels Werk stellt freizügige und erotische Sujets dar.1810, 1818, 1824 und 1830 beteiligte sich Markus Dinkel an den Berner Kunst- und Industrieausstellungen mit Aquarellen (1810 nach Raphael, de la Haye und Boucher). Zusammen mit Johann Emanuel Locher gab Markus Dinkel ab 1820 einen Recueil des Portraits Suisses des 22 Cantons heraus. Aufgrund eines aufwändigen Lebensstils verarmte Dinkel. Der Verkauf von Nuditäten war seinem Ruf abträglich. Vor dem Bankrott stehend stürzte sich Dinkel am 5. Februar 1832 von der Berner Untertorbrücke in die Aare und ertrank. Das Konkursverfahren wurde nach seinem Tod im März eröffnet.

Watercolour of 2 birds on unwatermarked wove paper (ca. 48 x 35 cm), both standing on a branch, the lowest branch signed: "J.G. Prêtre. 1824".

      For the published work see: Anker 502; Balis, Van diverse pluimage 75; Nissen, IVB 932; Zimmer, pp. 626-628. Original watercolour of a Brown Treecreeper (Climacteris picumnus) and a White-throated Treecreeper (Cormobates leucophaea) by the prolific zoological artist Jean Gabriel Prêtre, produced for Temminck's Nouveau recueil de planches coloriées d'oiseaux...

Temminck's lavishly illustrated Nouveau recueil de planches coloriées d'oiseaux... issued in 102 parts between 1820-1839, was published as a kind of continuation to Buffon's Histoire naturelle des oiseaux (1770-1786). In total it contains ca. 600 engraved plates with about 800 figures of birds by Nicolas Huet and Prêtre, and it's considered "the most monumental work of the post-Napoleonic period" (Balis).Paper slightly browned, some faint spots and traces of previous mounting on the back. A beautiful watercolour of two treecreepers.
