        Veduta dell'Anfiteatro Flavio, detto il Colosseo

      1821. 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. Incisione in rame, ampli margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. 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, Rossini's choice of the subjects does not present any kind of originality; he actually depicted all the main archaeological sites and monuments of Rome. The sole novelty is represented by the precise record of the excavation works and analysis. Quite interesting, from a documental point of view, are the last four engravings depicting the destruction of the Basilica of St. Paul outside the wall, after the fire of July the 15th, 1823. The will to give life to his views, the reinstatement of the monuments to their historic context and the fact that he was not good with figures, brought Rossini to start a partnership with Bartolomeo Pinelli, Roman engraver and costume illustrator of daily life. He was the one who realized the figures of Rossini's views. Sometimes Pinelli took the subjects from his previous collection Costumi pittoreschi romani. Copperplate, with wide margins, in very good conditions.

        PLAYS AND POEMS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE, With the Corrections and Illustrations of Various Commentators: Comprehending A LIFE OF THE POET, and an Enlarged History of the Stage, by the Late Edmond Malone. With a New Glossarial Index. [With the important preface by Boswell and the prefaces by Pope, Theobald, Hanmer, Warburton, johson, Steevens, Reed, Malone, Richardson as well as commentary by other illustrious thinkers and writers of the day, and including Rowe’s Life and Malone’s Life of Shakespeare and Commendatory Poems on Shakespeare, as well as extensive notes on the plays, their order and an essay on the English stage et al.]

      London F.C. and J. Rivington; et al 1821 - 21 volumes. The ‘Boswell’s Malone’ Edition, first thus. With an engraved frontispiece portrait in Volume I from the Chandos portrait. 8vo, handsomely bound in contemporary full smooth tan calf, boards gilt ruled, gilt decorated board edges, spines attractively gilt tooled in panels between raised gilt tooled bands, lettering labels in two panels of dark green and buff morocco, smaller morocco volume labels at the tails, all labels lettered in gilt, a.e.g. A very handsome and stately set in proper bindings, internally very fresh, bindings with some minor age evidence, some cracking to hinges on some volumes. A very pleasing set. AN IMPORTANT AND EARLY PRINTING OF THE WORKS. This variorum edition not only forms a fine summery of the cumulative scholarship on Shakespeare during the 18th century but has time and again been called the foundation of modern Shakespearean scholarship. James Boswell, the son of Johnson’s biographer, had a hard task in ordering Malone’s papers - "I may add", he states in his 50 page introduction, "that it is not everyone who could have deciphered his notes." Along with all of Malone’s material this set contains three full volumes of scholarly works including the prefaces of all of the major editions of the previous century, more then one life of Shakespeare, Boswell’s life of Malone, histories of the stage, Shakespeare’s will, Coat of Arms and other relative documents to the Bards life and extensive notes on and from the modern editions. In addition to all of this material is the extensive and very useful ‘Glossarial Index’ and an Addenda. No less then 35 publishers joined forces to produce these volumes and it is alone among the variorum editions to include a volume of Poems. Its influence was such that many years later the Sette of Odd Volumes, a renowned bibliophile dining club, limited its membership to 21 stating this in its list of rules; "The Sette of Odd Volumes to consist of twenty one, this being the number of volumes of the variorum Shakespeare of 1821".

        Grundlinien der Philosophie des Rechts

      Berlin Nicolaischen Buchhandlung 1821 - The State as Perfect Organization. First Edition with Additional Title-Page HEGEL, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich. Grundlinien der Philosophie des Rechts. Berlin: In der Nicolaischen Buchhandlung, 1821. First edition. Octavo (7 11/16 x 4 13/16 inches; 196 x 123 mm). [2], xxvi, 355, [1, printer’s imprint] pp. With the additional title page: "Naturrecht und Staatswissenschaft im Grundrisse. Zum Gebrauch für seine Vorlesungen". Leaf ** bound on a stub? Contemporary marbled paper over boards. Spine with paper label, printing rubbed off. Boards rubbed and chipped, mainly along edges and at head and tail of the spine. Very small early ink signature on title page. Pages lightly browned. No rear free endpaper. Overall, an excellent, clean copy. "The Grundlinien deals with [moral and political philosophy], and is a complete system, in which the concept of a sociology dominated by the idea of the State is laid down. It turns away from the apparent chaos of the democratic advocates of individual right in favour of an overwhelming sense that liberty cannot exist apart from order, and that the vital connexion of all parts of the body politic is the source of all good. As the family is, without contract, the instinctive realization of the moral life, so, equally without contract, the State is the fullest expression of the moral spirit, where interdependence is combined with free will. The State is the perfection of man as a finite entity, whence the spirit moves into the absolute existence of art, religion and philosophy. Taken apart from the rest of his system, Hegel’s political philosophy has been much misrepresented by totalitarian propagandists. He was, however, one of the most profound and intellectual thinkers of the nineteenth century. Theology, philosophy, political theory, all have been radically influenced by his system" (Printing and the Mind of Man). This is the most important work of political philosophy before Marx, whose work is explicitly constructed as a reaction to Hegel. Borst 1361. Printing and the Mind of Man 283.

        Das Leben des Malers Johann Weber von Bern. [Published as:] XVII Neujahrstuck, herausgegeben von der Kunstler-Gesellschaft in Zurich auf das Jahr 1821

      Zurich: n.p. 1821. Square octavo, aquatint frontispiece, 13pp. with engraved oval portrait at head of first page; a fine copy in the original printed brown wrappers, preserved in a folding bookform case. Only edition, rare: with the famous engraved portrait of John Webber, the official artist of Cook's third voyage. This was the only contemporary portrait of Webber to have been published.This biographical essay is the main source of the little that is known about the life of Webber, and is based on letters and oral communications Wagner collected soon after Webber's death in 1793, including information from the artist's brother Henry. A stand-alone and separately-paginated publication, this was issued in a series of small printings put out by the Society of Artists (Kunstler-Gesellschaft) in Zurich who seem to have produced an annual publication every New Year over some decades.Wagner's pamphlet not only features an attractive frontispiece based on Webber's image of the burial platform in Tahiti, one of the more famous images from his Voyages in the South Seas (plate VIII), but is especially notable for the engraved portrait of Webber himself by K. Meyer. For such a prolific artist there are curiously few known likenesses. He did paint a miniature self-portrait now held in Bern, and this painting was used as the basis for a larger work by Johann Daniel Mottet in 1812. One or other of these very similar paintings was evidently the basis for Meyer's engraving. Significantly, the only other lifetime portrait of Webber appears to be John Spiller's marble plaque of the artist in profile (now in the Rex Nan Kivell collection in the National Library of Australia).Forbes knew the work only from the Sir Maurice Holmes copy in the UCLA library.

Letters from the Parry Expedition, 1819-1820, describing the voyage and the wintering at Winter Harbour, Melville Island, the Canadian Arctic waters and their ice, the Arctic night, the activities of the crews. Although anonymous, internal evidence shows the officer to have been one of the midshipmen on the Griper; either A.M. Skene or William Nelson Griffth. All of the letters are addressed to the author's brother, Thomas, and they contain a great deal of information about the voyage, particularly regarding conditions on the ship, the hardships of Winter Harbour, the Arctic night, the crew's morale, etc. The style is informal and `chatty' and this book makes an excellent supplement to the official admiralty account written by Captain Parry.

        Execution of Stephen Merrill Clark, Which Took Place on Winter Island

      1821 - An Event That Advanced a Successful Movement to Reduce the Number of Capital Crimes in Massachusetts [Broadside]. [Execution]. [Salem, Massachusetts]. Execution of Stephen Merrill Clark, Which Took Place on Winter Island, Salem, On Thursday, May 10, 1821. Salem (?), MA: S.n., 1821. 17-1/2" x 11-1/4" broadside. Text in four columns enclosed by black rules, small woodcut of a coffin below headline, untrimmed edges. Light browning and foxing, fold lines, three horizontal and one vertical, a few creases and tiny fold-overs along edges. A notably well-preserved copy of a scarce item. $1,850. * In 1820 Clark burned down a barn. There was no loss of life, but he was tried for a capital crime, found guilty and sentenced to death. The jury recommended commutation to no avail. He was sixteen years of age when he committed the crime, seventeen when executed. His case helped to advance a successful movement to reduce the number of capital crimes. By 1852 only murder remained a capital offense. Cohen lists this item but notes that he didn't handle a copy; his entry is based on a dealer's catalogue. Cohen also notes another broadside, again unseen, a 16-page pamphlet at Harvard Law School, and a 63-page report of the trial, at Yale Law School. Curiously, there is nothing for Clark in McDade, which is surprising given the contemporary and long-term importance of the case. These omissions in McDade suggest the rarity of these four accounts. OCLC locates 10 copies of the broadside. Cohen, Bibliography of Early American Law 1238.

Marino Falerio is a verse tragedy written by Byron after visiting the Palazzo Ducale in Venice and discovering that the portrait of the 14th-century ruler Marino Faliero had been blacked out, on account of his failed coup d'état. Byron's play inspired a painting by Delacroix and a rewriting by Swinburne. It was published along with his poem "The Prophecy of Dante", which Byron had written in 1819 to amuse his lover the Countess Teresa Guiccioli, and which he considered "the best thing I ever wrote" (letter to Murray, 23 March 1820).

        Hinterlassene Schriften. Hrsg. von Ludwig Tieck. LXXVIII, 290 S. Marmor. Pappbd d. Z. (Kanten berieben) mit Rückenschild.

      Berlin, G. Reimer, 1821. - Erste Ausgabe. Die lange Einleitung von Tieck gehört zu den wichtigsten zeitgenössischen Quellen zu Leben und Werk Heinrich von Kleists (1777-1811). "Tiecks Name bleibt bis heute mit den Erstausgaben von Novalis, Maler Müller, Kleist und Lenz engstens verbunden und nimmt in der Rezeptionsgeschichte dieser Dichter eine besondere Stellung ein . Schließlich lassen sich Verbindungen herstellen zwischen allen vier Dichtern und Tiecks eigenem literarischen Bestreben: zwischen 'Sternbald' und 'Heinrich von Ofterdingen' als Fortsetzung des frühromantischen Künstlerromans, zwischen Kleists Geschichtsdramen (Tieck schätzte sie besonders) und der angestrebten Erneuerung eines Nationaltheaters . Die verdienstvollen Kleist-Ausgaben von 1821 und 1826, die Tiecks Selbstlosigkeit und sein sicheres Erkennen von Dichtergenies bekunden, enthalten bezeichnenderweise keine pauschale Ehrenrettung Kleists; es ist im Vorwort von der 'tiefen Disharmonie' und den 'grellen Widersprüchen' seines Wesens die Rede" (Paulin, Metzler, S. 106 ff). Der Band enthält u. a. die Erstdrucke des 'Prinz von Homburg' und der 'Hermannschlacht'. Unveröffentlicht waren auch: Sonett an die Königin von Preußen, Gedichte an Franz I., Palafox und den Erzherzog Carl sowie Brieffragmente 'aus einer Korrespondenz mit einer geistreichen Verwandtinn' (d. i.

      Cf. Borba de Moraes, p. 754; Regnet, Münchener Künstlerbilder II, pp. 132-141. A 4-page letter by the widely-travelled German painter Rugendas, famous for his sumptuously illustrated book Voyage pittoresque dans le Brésil , which was the fruit of his travels in Brazil (1821-1825). Inspired by Von Humboldt, he sailed again for South America in 1831, travelling through Mexico, Argentina, Uruguay, Peru, Bolivia, and Brazil. In 1846 he departed for Europe, spending his last years in Munich and Weilheim an der Teck. The King of Bavaria purchased his sketches in exchange for a life annuity of 1200 florins per year. Apparently, Rugendas was still in need of money, since he writes in the present letter that he wants to travel to Prussia to ask the King for a salary "von dem es sich's gut hier leben ließ - ungefähr wie Humboldt in Paris lebte ...". He further mentions the preparation of a "Künstlerball", for which the conductor and opera director Karl Perfall had composed the music. Rugendas refers to the famous "Künsterlfeste", theme parties that took place every year during carnival.The letter may have been addressed to Rugendas's friend Carl Albert Regnet, a District Officer in Munich. This is at least suggested by the added document, which is signed by Regnet and which opens with the remark "Zum Briefe meines lieben unvergeßlichen Freundes Moritz Rugendas möchten ein Paar Zeile am Platze sein", followed by details on Rugendas's life and works. Regnet would later honour Rugendas with an extensive entry in his 2-volume biographical dictionary Münchener Künstlerbilder (1871).In very good condition.

        Procession of Victuallers

      Philadelphia: Published by Joseph Yeager; printed by Charles Woodward, 1821. Engraving, etching and aquatint with hand-coloring and mezzotint on buff wove paper (plate: 50.5 x 66 cm.; image: 42.5 x 59 cm.). Second state, in which it is added that the view was "taken from M. Carey & Sons Book Store. S.E. corner of 4th and Chestnut Sts". There is no known extant copy of the first state, but it is referred to and described in Stauffer & Fielding's American Engravers upon Copper and Steel (page 556). "The procession of butchers with their carts carrying meat from a cattle market show was organized to encourage the breeding of cattle and attracted 300,000 people if the Philadelphia Gazette is to be believed. It took one hundred carts to carry 86,731 pounds of meat, including bear and deer meat. The butchers and victualers proudly flew their banner, 'We feed the Hungry.'" (Nash, First City: Philadelphia and the Forging of Historical Memory). ~ "[T]he most popular of local views in aquatint was the light-hearted genre scene, The Procession of the Victuallers. This is almost the only such local print of its time. Set in an atmosphere of happy holiday cheer, there is in it as well the appeal of dozens of figures drawn from Krimmel (1786-1821), whose simple charm in the flat planar medium is redolent of days long gone. The Procession of the Victuallers, drawn by Krimmel in the year of his death, 1821, was aquatinted by Joseph Yeager (c. 1792-1859) in his only engraving in that mode which has been found. This is lavish in size and in the crowded atmosphere typical of Krimmel… The Philadelphia Gazette of March 16, the day after the event, reported that 'What added considerably to the novelty and beauty of the scene, was the ascension of several handsome balloons during the line of march.' It has been said that the spectacle was witnessed by 300,000; the population of the city at that time was 127,000." (Snyder, Mirror of America). The 1904 auction catalogue of rare Americana from the estate of Moses Polock, "the oldest bookseller in the United States" included the original watercolor (later sold at Christie's New York in 2008 for $338,500), and the descriptions noted that it was "from this that the now very rare engraving was made." There is loss to the margins at the lower right-hand corner, and several closed tears intruding into the text or the image; paper restoration is subtle but visible. Some general discoloration, but the colors remain quite bright. Framed. Rare. [Stauffer & Fielding 3438ii].
