        Weibliche Trachtenportraits (Brustbild) - Mappe mit 10 signierten und 5 unsignierten Orig.-Aquarelle.

      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.

        [Echelet picumne & Echelet grimpeur, mâle (= plate 281 from Temminck's Nouveau recueil de planches coloriées d'oiseaux ... )]. [France], 1824. 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". With the birds numbered in pencil and the plate number and bird names in pencil in the lower left corner.

      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... (Paris, 1820-1839). Both species are Australasian treecreepers found in Australia. 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.

Each plate has an explanatory caption, one has an additional poem, and a few depict historical events; e.g. "Opening of Waterloo Bridge on the 18th of June 1817", "Launch of the Nelson at Woolrich, July 4th 1814", and "Fair on the Thames Feb. 1814" (when the river was frozen over). Ex-libris of Eleanor Castle Stewart - which is probably Eleanor May Stuart (nee Guggenheim), Countess Castle Stewart (1896-1992), wife of 7th Earl Castle Stewart; daughter of Solomon R.

        The Thames, a picturesque delineation of the most beautiful scenery on the banks of that river. Plates

      London, Cooke, ca. 1820-22. Imperial 4to (37.3 x 26.9 cm). 75 finely and later (but not recent) hand-coloured steel engravings on India paper with proofs. Printed wrapper of the first installment bound in the rear. Turn of the century dark green, gilt-bordered, morocco. Spine with five raised bands, rich gilt compartments and gilt title. Top edge gilt.l Printed in various sizes, and not uncommon in a regular edition, this is the very rare imperial 4to edition on India paper with proofs, the most expensive version at the time and only a very limited print run.

The plates show early 19th century scenery along the Thames, which is always in view, depicting villages, towns (including Oxford and London), bridges, estates, monuments, and several pastoral scenes including cattle, people fishing, rowing, ship-building, etc., all accurately engraved and coloured by hand. Each plate has an explanatory caption, one has an additional poem, and a few depict historical events; e.g. "Opening of Waterloo Bridge on the 18th of June 1817", "Launch of the Nelson at Woolrich, July 4th 1814", and "Fair on the Thames Feb. 1814" (when the river was frozen over). Ex-libris of Eleanor Castle Stewart - which is probably Eleanor May Stuart (née Guggenheim), Countess Castle Stewart (1896-1992), wife of 7th Earl Castle Stewart; daughter of Solomon R. Guggenheim, pasted in on free endpaper. The margins are very wide; there is no foxing. The paper is watermarked Whatman 1820. A few plates with some small and only slight creases to India paper.

        View of the Entrance to the Palace, Luxor, Thebes. "Vue de l'Entrée du palais_ Thèbes. Louqsor

      Middle East: Paris Impremerie de C.L.F.Pancoucke 1820-1829. Large double page, copper engraved view entrance to the Templeof Luxor, Thebes from the third volume of the "Antiquities "of the "Description de l'Egypte," 2nd Edition; black & white; verso blank. Blind stamp of the publisher Panckoucke to margin. The view shows the entrance to the temple with the two obelisks [the one on the right now stands in the Place de la Concorde in Paris], with two defaced heads of statues buried in the sand, in front of the pylons of the temple with their decorated walls; just glimpsed through the entrance can be seen the hall of columns. Good dark impression; some light foxing. mainly to upper margin. "Description de l'Egypte, ou, Recueil des observations et des recherches qui ont été faites en Egypte pendant l'expédition de l'armée française." When Napoleon Bonaparte invaded Egypt in 1798, he brought with him an entourage of more than 160 scholars and scientists. Known as the French Commission on the Sciences and Arts of Egypt, these experts undertook an extensive survey of the country's archeology, topography, and natural history. . For four years more than 150 artists, engineers, linguists, and scientists traveled throughout the country, examining almost every aspect of ancient and contemporary Egypt. They recorded and measured in meticulous detail Egypt's topography, flora and fauna, and its ancient and contemporary architecture. A soldier who was part of the expedition found the famous Rosetta Stone, which the French linguist and scholar Jean-François Champollion (1790-1832) later used to unlock many of the mysteries that long had surrounded the language of ancient Egypt. The Egyptian expedition ended with a total military failure. The French left Egypt in 1801, with the honors of war, but defeated; yet military failure remains a significant event in the history of knowledge because it is the first time a military expedition was accompanied by a scientific expedition. In 1802 Napoleon authorized the publication of the commission's findings in a monumental, multi-volume work that included plates, maps, scholarly essays, and a detailed index. Publication of the original Imperial edition began in 1809 and continued to 1822, sold by subscription. It proved so popular that a second edition was published under the post-Napoleonic Bourbon Restoration. The "Royal edition" published in Paris by C.L.F. Panckoucke from 1820-1830. The Second edition consists of 11 or 12 volumes of plates in folio and 24 of text [bound as 26] 8vo. Brunet:II, 617; Blackmer/Navari: 476 [1st edition] Middle East Egypt Luxor Thebes

      Leipzig, Baumgärtner, 1820.. VIII, 80 S. Kl.-8°. HLdr. der Zeit mit Rückentitel (etw. bestoßen und berieben).. Erste deutsche Ausgabe der "Further observations on the internal use of the hydro-cyanic (prussic) acid" von Augustus Bozzi Granville. - Hirsch/H. II, 131. - Augustus Bozzi Granvill (1783 - 1872) studierte Medizin in Pavia und wurde nach einer abenteuerlichen Jugend im Jahre 1818 als Arzt an der Westminster Dispensary sesshaft. 1829 wurde er Präsident der Westminster Medical Society. Granville untersuchte Gesundheitsstatistiken und Todesursachen bei der Arbeiterschaft und setzte sich hartnäckig für die notwendigen Reformen ein. Granville hat daneben 1821 die erste medizinische Autopsie an einer antiken ägyptischen Mumie - Irtyersenu (etwa 600-550 v. Chr.) - vorgenommen. Er glaubte damals Gebärmutterkrebs als Todesursache festgestellt zu haben. Diese Meinung wurde erst in den Jahren nach 2000 widerlegt. - "In 1819 he also publsihed his obervations on the internal use of the hydro-cyanic (prussic) acid in irritant diseases of the lungs such as consumption, the idea being derived from his having observed the use of the laurel water in Venice some years previously" (Alex Sakula: Augustus Bozzi Granville. In: Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine. Vol. 76 (1983). p. 879). - Vorgebunden: Karl Stahlberger, Sammung chemischer Reagentien für gerichtliche Ärzte, Pharmazeuten und Liebhaber der Chemie.
