Burder, Abercrombie's correspondent, was a London physician who "suffered from almost constant ill-health" (DNB); his article on "Headache," contributed to the "Cyclopedia of Practical Medicine," was based largely on his own experience.

        The pharmacopoeia of the United States of America

      Wells & Lilly Boston: Wells & Lilly, 1820. 8vo. 272pp. 18th cent. tree sheep, rebacked. Some foxing and browning as is common in American books of this period. First edition. Garrison-Morton 1845. The first official pharmacopeia of the United States owed its existence largely to the efforts of the American physician Lyman Spalding, who began campaigning for a national pharmacopeia in 1815. Spalding's efforts finally bore fruit in a national convention that met in 1820 and adopted a pharmacopeia based mainly on the Pharmacopoeia of the Massachusetts Medical Society (1808).

Wallmarks antologi, tryckt på hans eget tryckeri, har försvaret av den gustavianska och sengustavianska diktningen som ett av sina huvudsyften, men svensk litteratur från Stiernhielm och Dalin till Tegnér och Stagnelius är givetvis också representerad. Arbetet är systematiskt indelat efter genre och ämne, vilket gör att antologin inte är användbar för att få exempel ur en författares produktion och delvis har även dikter splittrats upp i delar för att passa in i systemet, som är indelat på en sådan detaljnivå som t.ex. "regnbågen", "wexter och djur i Lappland" och "snöbollskastning"

        Monsr. J. Isabey's Exhibition Rooms, 61 Pall Mall / Salle d'Exhibition de J. Isabey, a Londres

      Published by J. Isabey, June, 1820. Colour-printed aquatint. Printed on wove Whatman paper watermarked 1820. In excellent condition. Image size: 7 ¼ x 9 7/8 inches. 8 ¼ x 10 7/8 inches. 13 x 18 ¾ inches. A fascinating view of J. Isabey's picture gallery in Pall Mall, London, by the celebrated American engraver William James Bennett. William James Bennett was born in England, and received his artistic training at the celebrated Royal Academy. He garnered a reputation as an accomplished watercolourist and exhibited many fine landscapes at the Academy's annual exhibitions. Bennett was one of the principle members of the Society of Painters in Watercolours and helped establish watercolour as a prominent medium in England. He displayed an exceptional talent at aquatint and during his career produced many fine prints for some the most lavish English plate books. He emigrated to the United States in 1826, and is best known for his views of American cities, including the Hudson Valley Region, Niagara Falls, and numerous port cities such as New York, Charleston, and Buffalo. Bennett's series of views of American Cities set a standard, and established a compositional formula, for topographical art in America. His views remain the most memorable and beautiful examples of the genre, and they exerted a lasting influence on generations of American artists. This beautiful image of Mr. Isabey's exhibition rooms in Pall Mall is not listed separately amongst Bennett's work, but according to DeSilva and Deak, he completed a number of aquatints in 1820, which are not recorded. It is possible that this picturesque interior scene is one of the images, which was not immediately attributed to Bennett. This charming work closely resembles images published by the leading English printseller Rudolph Ackermann, in particular an image depicting his gallery "The Repository of Arts". As in the Ackermann image, connoisseurs are shown enjoying the exhibition rooms in Isabey's gallery. Jean-Baptiste Isabey (1767-1855) was a French artist and what might be called "artistic entrepreneur". He managed to become Marie Antoinette's artist in residence for miniatures. Later, he designed Napoleon and Josephines and drawings in London of his own work and others. The exhibition should have been more successful than it was, but it coincided with George IV's divorce, during which most British aristocrats fled to their country estates. Deak, William James Bennett p. 3-26; DeSilva, William James Bennett: Painter and Engraver, p. 39-42

        View of East Rock, New Haven

      Ct.: George Henry Durrie A WONDERFUL VIEW OF EAST ROCK BY ACCLAIMED ARTIST GEORGE DURRIE Oil on canvas Canvas size: 20 1/4" x 25 1/4" Frame size: 28 1/4" x 33 1/2" George Henry Durrie was born in Hartford, Connecticut in 1820. Along with his older brother John, he studied sporadically from 1839 to 1841 with the portrait painter Nathaniel Jocelyn. Between 1840 to 1842 he became an itinerant painter in Connecticut and New Jersey, expanding his repetoire to include still life, genre and Shakespearean scenes. He finally settled in New Haven, Connecticut where he spent the remainder of his life. Durrie produced roughly 300 paintings, of which the earliest were portraits; by the mid-1840s he had begun to paint landscape and rural genre scenes of New England and these are considered to be his finest achievement. His landscapes are characterized by the use of pale though cheerful colors and by the repeated use of certain motifs: an isolated farmhouse, a road placed diagonally leading the eye into the composition, and a hill in the distance. By the late 1850s Durrie's reputation had started to grow, and he was exhibiting at prestigious institutions, such as the National Academy of Design. In 1861 Currier & Ives helped popularize his work by publishing hand-colored lithographs of two of his winter landscapes, New England Winter Scene and the Farmyard in Winter. Two more were published in 1863 and a further six after his death that same year. This captivating painting of East Rock is a quintessential Durrie work. The sophisticated simplicity of the composition is enlivened by the delicate nuances of green color that punctuate the various landscape elements, while the diminuative figure in the foreground only serves to emphasize the large scale of the towering Rock. The hill, rising some four hundred feet and is easily visible from many parts of New Haven as well as from surrounding towns thus making it a prominent landmark of the area. Thus, it is fitting that East Rock should be so gloriously rendered by one of New Haven's most prominent and well-respected nineteenth-century artists.. Book.

        Principles of Political Economy, Considered with a View to their Practical Application

      London: John Murray 1820 London: John Murray, 1820. First edition. 8vo (219 x 132 mm.). vi, 601 pp. Bound in later half cloth and marbled boards, paper label. Very good. Goldsmith 22767; Lowndes, 1459; Kress C577 . First edition of this important classic of economic theory. "There can be no doubt that [Malthus'] importance for economists today rests mainly on his Principles of Political Economy. It was because of this latter work that J. M. Keynes (1933) reinstated Malthus as a major figure in modern economic thought" (New Palgrave). "One of the founders of modern economics," Malthus was credited by Keynes with framing the theory "that a lack of effective demand can cause economic crises" (PMM 251). "In his Principles of Political Economy, Malthus was proposing investment in public works and private luxury as a means of increasing effective demand, and hence as a palliative to economic distress. The nation, he thought, must balance the power to produce and the will to consume" (DSB IX:70)

Webber was engaged as the official artist for Cook's third voyage, during which Cook discovered Hawaii & Alaska.Webber was more fully trained than any of the artists of the previous voyages, and he and Cook worked closely together to illuminate "the unavoidable imperfections of written accounts, by enabling us to preserve, and to bring home, such drawings of the most memorable scenes of our transactions, as could only be expected by a professed and skilled artist." (J. Cook & J. King, Voyage to the Pacific Ocean, London 1784, Vol I, p.5). Because he was there with Cook in the field, his paintings "constituted a new visual source for the study of history..." (Smith, Bernard, Art as Information. Sydney, 1978). Cook's ships were the first Western contact with the natives of Nootka Sound and the furs they traded with them were sold at a vast profit in Macao in the following year, 1779.Soon American and English ships were making annual trips to the Northwest Coast in search of "Sea Beaver" pelts. Only 16 views were published in the book - the two views of Macao indicate its significance in the East.

        Original 19th Century Watercolor of French Tradesman: Marchand de Paniers

      British Isles : c. 1820. Fine condition A scarce and charming original early nineteenth century watercolor painting on wove paper. (7 x 7.25 inches, 177 x 186 mm.) The painting has been tipped onto ecru wove album paper of the period, as was the custom, yet the watercolors remain vibrant and rich. Although the origin of this lovely painting is unknown, a refined and experienced hand clearly created this detailed and elegant composition. The details are fine; both the tones and shading display the painter's astute understanding of composition and perspective. The artist no doubt was an armchair or "parlor" watercolorist, likely an aristocratic gentlewoman or man who sought inspiration from the vast array of published volumes, complete with engraved plates, of the trades, and costumes of then exotic regions of the globe, thus the inspiration seems apparent. Archivally framed in double Ivory French matting with 1" neo-classical gilt moulding, glazed with Conservation Glass. Sized to 17 1/2 x 20 inches.

Pärmpappret lätt nött och med några småfläckar. Några minimala skador i skinnet vid främre ytterfalsen. Enstaka spridda småfläckar. Pappersförtunning överst på s. 29.

Utspelar sig år 850 med Ansgar i en av rollerna. Tegnér kallade detta korta epos "utan undantag den mest genialiska tragedi vi hittills äga på svenska." Detta omdöme till trots har skådespelet aldrig uppförts. Dedikationsdikten har följande lydelse: "När skalden fram med lifvets fackla träder, / och låter höra sina sångers röst, / hvart ord, hvar blick af bifall honom gläder, / och göms som minnets blomma i hans bröst. / Men om ett hjerta på sin väg han finner / för dikten öppet, varmt och rent som ditt, / sin skönsta lager då hans hjessa vinner, / då blir hans hjerta saligt såsom mitt. / Försmå då ej det offer, som jag sänder, / af trofast minne och tillgifvenhet. / Jag slår min harpa bättre, då jag vet / mitt Runesvärd i amazonens händer."

        Lind, Jenny (1820-1887). Autograph note, 19 January 1849

      Lind, Jenny (1820-1887). Autograph note, 19 January 1849. 1 leaf, 8vo. (11.3 x 18cm). Folded, in brown ink. In excellent condition. To an unidentified recipient. Concerning the end of her operatic career [translation]: “Ms Lind regrets very much that further commitments for the next year cannot be accepted.” “Fräulein Lind bedauert sehr daß sie keine weitere Engagements für die nächste Zeit annehmen kann.” At 28, Lind was at the height of her career, having made her triumphal début in Vienna, in 1846, and, the following year, in London, in the presence of Queen Victoria. Having decided to give up theatrical roles, she sang in Sweden during the winter of 1847, making her last Stockholm appearance as Norma in April 1848. She then sang for a second season at Her Majesty’s, followed by an extensive tour of Great Britain. In December she sang Mendelssohn’s Elijah at the Exeter Hall, London. Persuaded to give six extra farewell performances at Her Majesty’s, she made her final stage appearance there as Alice on 10 May 1849. In 1850 she embarked on an eight-month concert tour throughout the USA, visiting 93 cities. She continued to sing in concerts and oratorios, both in Germany and in England, where she lived from 1858 until her death. In 1883, the year of her last public performance, she became professor of singing at the RCM.

        Set of Four Shooting Prints, [Plate 1] Shooting, Going Out, [Plate 2] Shooting, Game Found, [Plate 3] Shooting, Dogs brought the Game, and reloading, [Plate 4] Shooting, Refreshing

      circa 1820. Colour printed aquatints heightened with gum arabic. Printed on wove paper. In excellent condition with the exception of being trimmed within the platemark on the bottom margin. Four puncture holes on left margin where it was bound together. Plate 1, has some very minor foxing in margins. Image size: 9 ¾ x 12 5/8 inches. 12 5/8 x 15 3/4 inches. A handsome set of four shooting prints aquatinted by S. Himley after paintings by the celebrated sporting artist Dean Wolstenholme. Around 1820, S. Himley produced two sets of hunting aquatints after skilled paintings by Wolstenholme. These sets, expertly engraved in aquatint, were comprised of four plates illustrating shooting, and four plates depicting coursing. As with many of the prints after Wolstenholme's paintings it is difficult to decipher whether Himley's works reproduced paintings by Dean Wolstenhome Snr. or by his son Dean Wolstenholme Jnr. The Wolstenholme's were both talented sporting artists who earned a reputation as skilled animal painters. Both father and son exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy and garnered countless commissions from eager enthusiasts. They specialized in fine hunting scenes and had a natural flare for depicting movement, which lends their work an animation and life, which is truly compelling. This stunning set of four shooting prints is rarely found as a complete set and is a wonderful example of English sporting art at its best. Siltzer, The Story of British Sporting Prints 286-313, 364
