        Autographed Letter Signed with exceptional content

      New York, 1821. unbound. 2 pages (front and back), 12.75 x 8.75 inches, with an integral address leaf, New York, July 16, 1821. Written to Philadelphia publishers McCarty & Davis, proposing a new biography of Thomas Paine, the author of Common Sense, in small part: "...I have been advised by a great number of citizens, to write an abridgement of the Life of Thomas Paine, and to have an engraved likeness of him taken from a miniature painting that I own, which was taken a few years before his death, it is said to be the best that ever was taken, no man liveing (sic) knew Pain (sic) better then (sic) myself -- Cheethans Life of Paine was a scandalous work, the price two dollars!...their (sic) are thousands in this countrey (sic) that would be willing to give a dollar for a good likeness of Paine, by its self..." This, of course, was the furthest thing from the truth. When Paine died, only six people attended his funeral. He alienated just about every friend he had in America to the point that he was literally disowned. When Paine died, Carver buried him in the backyard of his house where he remained until two Englishmen dug him up and gave him a proper burial in England. Provenance: The Henry E. Luhrs Collection. Stained around the edges from tape reinforcements on the back; chipping at the edges; one horizontal fold; small hole on the left side, partially obscuring two words. Good condition. New York patriot who was a close associate of Thomas Paine. In 1809 he nursed Paine back to health while on his death bed.

        President James Monroe recommends the execution of two Chippewas convicted of murdering two soldiers: "an example should be made..."

      Oak Hill, June 25,1821. 8" x 10". "Autograph Letter Signed, ""James Monroe,"" as President, 2 pages, front & verso, 8"" x 10"", Oak Hill, June 25, 1821 [to Secretary of War, John C. Calhoun], concerning the execution of two Chippewas convicted of murdering two men in Illinois and the court martial of Col. Talbot Chambers, who had illegally punished two deserters by ordering their ears cropped. Light toning along expected horizontal mailing folds, small marginal tear at left margin and two pinholes do not affect text, else very good. Of particular interest are Monroe's comments concerning a recent trial for two Chippewa Indians who had murdered a pair of soldiers at Rock Island, Illinois in March 1820. Citing a recent incident where an army surgeon had been killed by members of the same tribe, Calhoun concluded in a letter to Monroe that ""An example would seem to be necessary."" (Calhoun to Monroe, June 18, 1821, Correspondence of John C. Calhoun, 1900, Vol. 2, Pt. 1, p. 189). Monroe agreed with the Secretary's recommendation: ""I concur with you, that an example should be made, of one of the Indians condemned in Illinois, for the murder of two of our soldiers. Should further consideration induce a doubt on the subject, submit the case to the administration & follow its advice. I send you back the paper [not present] relating to it."" At a federal trial held at Vandalia, Illinois soon afterward, ""Chewacharah and Whorajinka, the two Indians indicted for the murder of two men at Rock Island in March 1820, were tried before the Hon. N. Pope, on the 11th ult. and on the 12th were sentenced to be severally hanged on the 14th day of July next..."" The men did not dispute the charge, noting ""that the witness against them (who as an Indian of their own tribe, and present at the murder) had told the truth."" When asked, ""if they had any thing to say why sentence should not be pronounced against them, they said, 'what can we say? we know that we killed the men. When we saw our young man, who was with us, lay his hand on the book, we hoped that you would have pity on us; but we find there is no pity for us; we deserve to die..."" (Canton [Ohio] Repository, July 5, 1821, p. 2.) Chewacharah died several days after the court issued the sentence; Whorajinka was not executed in July as scheduled, having received a brief reprieve by President Monroe. However on August 14, 1821 he was hung at Kaskaskia. (Farmer's Cabinet, Amherst, N.H., October 20, 1821, p. 2). Calhoun's letter of June 18 touched on a number of other subjects, including a notorious incident in which Colonel Talbot Chambers had ordered the ears of two deserters cropped as a punishment?" noting that Chambers had been suspended for one month?"a sentence which, ""the Court recommends to be remitted."" Contrary to the court's opinion, Calhoun found the sentence ""very inadequate to the Offence; and altho' there are mitigating circumstances, I doubt not, the punishment will be thought to be very inadequate by the community."" (Ibid). Monroe forwarded a written ""approval of the sentence; I put the approval on a separate paper [not present], that you may modify it, should you deem any change necessary, for publication, should it be made. The decision of the court is founded on a principle, which it is equally my duty to respect. In my comment, I have adopted, the sentiment, which they have express[e]d in his favor ?""" The Secretary concluded that the incident stemmed from ""a very erroneous mode of thinking,"" developed during the War of 1812, ""which took some years to correct."" He was now firmly of the belief that ""the establishment is now thoroughly reformed of most of the faults, which grew out of the incidents of the War."" (Calhoun, Correspondence, 189). Andrew Jackson had also found the ear cropping incident troubling, writing that he regretted, ""that a milder course had not been pursued by Col. Chambers... I have no doubt... but Col Chambers was actuated by the purest principles... but the law positively forbids the infliction of corporeal punishment."" (Jackson to Henry Atkinson, December 8, 1820, The Papers of Andrew Jackson, 1816-1820, 1994, p. 402)."

        Der Freischütz Romantische Oper in 3 Aufzügen Dichtung von Freidrich Kind... Klavier Auszug vom Componisten. Eigenthum des Verlegers. No. 1088. Preis 6 Rtth. 12 gr. [Piano-vocal score]

      Berlin in der Schlesingerschen Buch= und Musikhandlung [PN 1078] [1821]. Oblong folio. Half dark green calf with marbled boards, titling and ornaments gilt to spine. [1] (title), [2] (blank), 3 (cast list), 4-177, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved. Head and tail of spine scuffed; blank rectangular overpaste to upper portion of front pastedown. Title and first few leaves moderately foxed, balance of volume slightly foxed; margins of pp. 51-52 stained; plate number lacking to pp. 61, 108, and 158. A very good copy overall.. First Edition. Rare. WeV C.7. Jähns 277. Fuld p. 236. Hoboken 15, 350/351 (350 lacking plate number to p. 158 but also to pp. 14, 46, and 76, plate number present to pp. 61 and 108, and cast list without pagination; 351 with plate number to all pages and with paginated cast list). Hirsch IV, 1291. The divergence between the number on the title (1088) and the actual plate number (1078) seems to be common to all known copies. "With Der Freischütz [Weber] produced a work that competed successfully with popular French and Italian operas not only in Germany but in other countries as well. The impact of Der Freischütz on opera of the 1820s, 30s, and 40s is evident, as it inspired a spate of gothic works like the vampire operas of Marschner and Lindpaintner, and even as late a work as Der fliegende Holländer owes much to it; outside Germany, its success as Robin des Bois prepared the way for Meyerbeer's Robert le diable."

        Junge Frau in Ballrobe, stehend nach rechts.

      . Feder in Braun, grau und braun laviert, auf cremefarbenem Velin. 28,4:15,9 cm. Fehlstelle im linken Rand ergänzt. Die in elegant-modische Abendrobe gekleidete Dame der Pariser Gesellschaft ist in Guys charakteristischer sicherer und schnell hingeworfener Zeichenweise bei sparsamster Kolorierung fixiert.. Nach einer militärischen Ausbildung nahm Constantin Guys bereits im Alter von 18 Jahren an den Griechischen Befreiungskriegen (1821-1829) teil und trat 1827 einem Dragonerregiment bei. Um 1830 gelang ihm sein künstlerischer Durchbruch und er machte sich einen Namen als Zeichner der bürgerlichen Gesellschaft des französischen Zweiten Kaiserreiches, vor allem als Chronist des modernen Pariser Lebens. Anschließend folgten Reisen in den Orient und längere Aufenthalte in London und Paris, wo er als Kriegszeichner und Korrespondent (u.a. während des Krimkrieges 1854-1856) für verschiedene englische und französische Zeitungen (z.B. Illustrated London News) arbeitete. In Paris, wo er sich schließlich 1860 endgültig niederließ, pflegte er u.a. freundschaftliche Kontakte zu dem Schriftsteller Charles Baudelaire, der im übrigen Guys' Werk 1863 in einem seiner wichtigsten Aufsätze besonders lobte, zu dem Maler und Zeichner H. Daumier (1808-1879) und dem Fotografen, Schriftsteller und Zeichner F. Nadar (1820-1910). 1885 verlor Guys allerdings bei einem tragischen Unfall beide Beine. Deshalb verbrachte er die letzten Lebensjahre wohl auch aus Armut in einem Hospital.

        Ein Soldat versucht, auf den Schultern eines Kameraden stehend, von oben in ein Fenster zu spähen.

      - Bleistift, auf Velin, unter der Darstellung bezeichnet „Verunglückte Vorkehrung". 20,7:13,6 cm. – Insgesamt nicht ganz frisch. Vorzeichnung, möglicherweise gedacht für eine Veröffentlichung in einer Zeitschrift. Zur Beamtenlaufbahn bestimmt, studierte Moritz von Schwind zunächst an der Universität in Wien. 1821 begann er dennoch ein Studium an der örtlichen Kunstakademie und war bis 1822 Schüler des Historien- und Porträtmalers J.P. Krafft (1780-1856) und des Nazareners L.F. Schnorr von Carolsfeld (1788-1853). In Wien unterhielt er auch freundschaftlichen Kontakt zu Franz Schubert, Franz von Schober, Franz Grillparzer und dem Maler L. Kupelwieser (1796-1862). Auf Anraten von P. Cornelius (1783-1867) zog er 1828 nach München, wo er durch Vermittlung von Cornelius die Ausmalung des Bibliothekszimmers der bayerischen Königin mit Szenen aus Ludwig Tiecks Dichtung vornahm. 1835 reiste er nach Italien. Nach seiner Rückkehr schuf er Entwürfe für die Münchner Residenz und in der Burg Hohenschwangau. 1840 ging Schwind nach Karlsruhe, wo er für den Sitzungssaal des Karlsruher Ständehauses acht Rundmedaillons, für das Treppenhaus und die Erdgeschoß-Säle der Staatlichen Kunsthalle Fresken schuf. 1844 zog er nach Frankfurt am Main, wurde jedoch drei Jahre später als Professor an die Kunstakademie München berufen. 1855 wurde er in den Ritterstand erhoben. 1857 besuchte er London. 1866-1867 arbeitete er an der Ausmalung der neuerbauten Wiener Hofoper, für die Loggia und das Foyer.

      Berlin: in der Schlesingerschen Buch= und Musikhandlung [PN 1078]. [1821]. Oblong folio. Half dark green calf with marbled boards, titling and ornaments gilt to spine. [1] (title), [2] (blank), 3 (cast list), 4-177, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved. Head and tail of spine scuffed. Title and first few leaves moderately foxed, balance of volume slightly foxed; margins of pp. 51-52 stained; plate number lacking to pp. 61, 108, and 158. A very good copy overall. . First Edition. Rare. WeV C.7. Jähns 277. Fuld p. 236. Hoboken 15, 350/351 (350 lacking plate number to p. 158 but also to pp. 14, 46, and 76, plate number present to pp. 61 and 108, and cast list without pagination; 351 with plate number to all pages and with paginated cast list). Hirsch IV, 1291. The divergence between the number on the title (1088) and the actual plate number (1078) seems to be common to all known copies. "With Der Freischütz [Weber] produced a work that competed successfully with popular French and Italian operas not only in Germany but in other countries as well. The impact of Der Freischütz on opera of the 1820s, 30s, and 40s is evident, as it inspired a spate of gothic works like the vampire operas of Marschner and Lindpaintner, and even as late a work as Der fliegende Holländer owes much to it; outside Germany, its success as Robin des Bois prepared the way for MeyerbeerÂ’s Robert le diable."

Prince Maximilian, accompanied by the naturalists Georg Freyreiss and Friedrich Sellow, travelled through Brazil from 1815 to 1817. From Rio de Janeiro they journeyed to Cabo Frio, along the coast to Ilheus, to the borders of Minas Geraes and finally Bahia. The explorers made extensive studies of the flora and fauna of the Mata Atlantica, and visited the indigenous peoples such as the Botocudo, Purí, and Pataxo. First published in German as Reise nach Brasilien (1820–21), the work was immediately translated into other languages and reprinted many times. Borba de Moraes, p. 545; Sabin 47023.

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

      n.p., Zurich 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. Elusive biography of the great Cook voyage artist, with portrait and view. 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.

        Landschaft mit einer Ansicht von Vöslau.

      - Pinsel in Braun und Grau, über Bleistift, auf Bütten mit Wasserzeichen: C & I Honig, links unten bezeichnet „Vöslau", rechts unten signiert und datiert „Fischbach. 1821.". 23:30 cm. Einriß im unteren Bildteil und winziges Löchlein hinterlegt. Provenienz: Sammlung Ferdinand Rudolf Hintze, Stettin, nicht bei Lugt. Bildmäßig durchgeführte Zeichnung aus der frühesten Schaffensphase des Künstlers. Johann Fischbach studierte ab 1812 an der Wiener Akademie in der Landschaftsklasse von J. Mössmer (1780-1845). Bereits vier Jahre später wurde er Hauslehrer bei Graf Moritz Fries und dann Zeichenlehrer in dessen Erziehungsanstalt in Plankenberg bei Wien. 1825 folgte eine längere Studienreise durch Deutschland (Regensburg, Nürnberg und Heidelberg) und in die Schweiz. Im selben Jahr erfolgte die Ernennung zum Direktor der Kupferstichsammlung Paar in Wien. 1831 entdeckte er die Landschaft des Salzkammerguts, weshalb er sich von nun an hier jeden Sommer aufhielt. 1837 unternahm er zudem eine Reise nach Rom. Drei Jahre später siedelte er nach Salzburg über, wo er 1844 Mitbegründer des Kunstvereins wurde und Mitbetreiber einer Malschule war. 1851 zog er nach Aigen bei Salzburg, wo er sich in einem großen Park eine Villa erbaut hatte, die heutige „Fischbachvilla". 1843 wurde er Mitglied der Wiener Akademie. Obwohl er in Salzburg hochgeachtet war, zog er 1860 nach dem Tod seines Sohnes nach München, wo er schließlich im Alter von 74 Jahren verstarb. Der Maler, Zeichner und Radierer Johann Fischbach zählt heute zu den anerkanntesten Vertretern des österreichischen Biedermeiers, der eine besondere Vorliebe für das bäuerliche Leben und die heimische Landschaft hegte. Aber auch Bildnisse, Stadtansichten und Stilleben gehörten zu seinem Motivrepertoire. Vöslau ist unweit von Baden bei Wien gelegen.

      (Paris, Delaunay, 1821). - circa 29,5 x 37,5 cm. Lithographs: title, folding map and 56 views, some in one colour Contemporary cardboard with printed original label to spine ("Atlas du voyage.") Sabin 50230; Clark II, 47. The rare atlas only, without the 2 volumes of text and here with a total of 58 plates, instead of 59 (bibliographies seem to disagree but there are copies with a total of 59 - so here the plate 59, most likely a view of Egypt, is missing). The charming, sometimes a little naive lithographic plates were made after the author's own drawings. There is a folding map of the East coast of the United States, including the Missouri and Northwest territories and the Caribbean, among the views there are: New York harbor, a mastodon skeleton at the Philadelphia museum, "Encounter with a Rattle Snake" near the Ohio River, the port of St. Domingo, Niagara Falls, a view of St. Thomas, the Philadelphia hospital, Quaker costumes, "Costume des Negresses de St. Thomas," a country estate in Kingston (Jamaica), a church in New Orleans, "Sauvages du Mississippi" etc. Other plates show views from Italy (Livorno, Rome, Vesuvius, Aetna, Sicily etc.), two views of Malta and Gozzo and North Africa. The author is considered to have been one of the first passengers on a steamboat on the Mississippi. - Nice crisp copy, very clean and fresh, only very minor spotting. Binding rubbed, spine reinforced with paper. Plates of America complete, the last plate 59 must be of Egypt.

"First Georgetown edition (first published in Richmond 1812); 12mo, pp. vii, [4], iv-vi, [7]-290, 5 (subscriber's list), [1]; large, early engraved armorial bookplate of John Lenthall, [Sr.] (signed 'Thackara' in the plate); with the ownership signature of his son John Lenthall [Jr.] (1807-1882) dated July 1821 on front free endpaper, and signed again on the title page; contemporary and almost certainly original full tree calf, 7 double gilt fillets on spine enclosing in 5 panels gilt ornaments, and in 1 a red morocco label, gilt board edges; slight wear at the extremities, but a very good example with distinctive gilt work on the spine. Almost certainly bound by Joseph Milligan, Georgetown bookbinder, based on the similarity of tools used on the spine (see Papantonio, 42). The engraved bookplate is by James Thackara who also engraved a number of plates for Dobson's encyclopedia. He was a partner of John Vallance in the engraving business. ""Thackara was inferior to his partner as an engraver, according to Dunlap, and for a long time was the keeper of the Pennsylvania Acadermy of Fine Arts. We know but one example of his bookplate, and that is the Lenthall plate, which is a large and very interesting example of the Ribbon and Wreath style. It is an excellent piece of engraving, full of style, and graceful in design"" (Allen, American Bookplates, pp. 152; illustrated on p. 153). Allen 481: ""The only signed specimen of this engraver's work."" See also Stauffer, American Engravers Upon Copper and Steel, II, pp. 517-19. The original owner of the book was the son of John Lenthall, an Englishman, ""who while acting as Latrobe's superintendent in the building of the Capitol was killed on Sept. 19, 1808, by the fall of a vaulting in the north wing. His son (1807-1882) the naval architect ""who was chiefly responsible for the wooden warships of the Union navy in the Civil War, was a native of the District of Columbia"" (DNB). The son undoubtedly co-opted his father's bookplate when coming of age 14 years following his father's death. The preliminaries include testimonial letters from David Ramsay, John Marshall, and Thomas Jefferson, among others. Among the subscribers are Thomas L. M'Kenney, J. K. Paulding, and three first ladies: Dolley Madison, Elizabeth Munroe and Louisa Adams who each took 5 copies."
