      Weimar: Verlegt von den Gebrudern Hoffmann, 1821. First Edition. Hardcover. Good. "The Enlightenment came to Russia under the reign of Catherine the Great (1762-1796) and the eastward expansion begun under Peter the Great saw fruition in the establishment of Kodiak by Grigor I. Shelikhov and the Russian-American Company in 1783. With a base in America, the Russian Academy of Sciences entered the field of scientific exploration, and, given that communication and supply to Alaska overland through Siberia via Yakutsk, Irkutsk, Okhotsk, and Petropavlovsk required over two years and was extremely arduous, maritime routes from St. Petersburg to Kodiak were established by the Admiralty and its modernized fleet. The first Russian circumnavigation was achieved by Ivan Fedorovich Kruzenstern and Iurii Lisianskii in 1803-1806 via Kodiak and Sitka, founded in 1804, and was a success. The Napoleonic Wars interrupted a continuation of such voyages, resulting in isolation of the Alaskan colonies from St. Petersburg, and the Russian-American Company expanded to Bodega and Ross north of San Francisco in 1812 in an attempt to establish agricultural and stock-raising enclaves, and initiated voyages from Alaska to Kauai in the Hawaiian Islands. The defeat of Napoleon in 1814 reopened the possibilities of maritime supply to Alaska and scientific circumnavigation, and Lieutenant Otto von Kotzebue (1788-1846), a native of Tallinn and young cadet on the Kruzenstern voyage, was appointed to command the second Russian circumnavigation in 1815 with a single ship, the brig Rurik. With thirty-three men, first officer G. S. Shishmarev, artist-naturalists Adelbert von Chamisso, M. Wormskiold, and Ludwig Choris, physician Johann Friedrich Eschscholtz, and navigators V. Khromchenko and V. Petrov, there was no space for scientific work aboard. Sailing from Kronstadt on July 30, 1815, the expedition crossed the Atlantic, rounded Cape Horn, reached Concepción, Easter Island, and the Tuamotu Archipelago, and arrived at Petropavlovsk on June 7, 1816. From Kamchatka, Kotzebue conducted an extensive exploration of Bering Strait and rested at the outpost of Unalaska in the Aleutians from August 26 to September 3 before sailing southward. On October 2, Rurik anchored in San Francisco Bay where Kotzebue was well received by commandant José Darío Argüello who agreed to supply the expedition with every necessity. Governor Pablo Vicente Solá traveled from Monterey on October 16 to receive Kotzebue and the officers and scientists and, conversing in French, arrangements were made for supplies for Fort Ross, and for the release of Russian prisoners held for illegal hunting of sea otter in Spanish territory. Solá, nonetheless, registered his complaint over Russian encroachment at Ross and Bodega, and on October 25 Ivan Aleksandrovich Kuskov, commandant of Ross, traveled to San Francisco to negotiate differences. After three days of discussion, Kuskov declined to treat the legality of the Russian presence or abandon Ross, and Kotzebue agreed to present the matter before the Imperial Court on his return. In the interim, the naturalists made extensive geographic, ethnographic, botanical, and zoological observations, with the earliest description of the California poppy made by Eschscholtz and extraordinary drawings realized by Choris. Sailing from San Francisco on November 1, Kotzebue proceeded to Kauai where he remained from November 24 to December 14 and, following further exploration in the south, returned to Unalaska on April 12, 1817, where he repaired Rurik. On June 17, the expedition sailed for the Bering Strait, but finding it still iced, returned to Unalaska until August 16, when the homeward voyage was begun. After making further repairs in Manila, Kotzebue rounded the Cape of Good Hope and reached Kronstadt on July 22, 1818. Although Kuskov complained of Kotzebue's interference in the affairs of the Russian-American Company, the expedition was considered a success and from 1823 to 1826 he commanded a second circumnavigation with Eschscholtz, again visiting San Francisco, from October 8 to December 6, 1824" (Gary Kurutz, The Zamorano 80 Collection of Daniel G.

      Paris: Gide fils, 1821. Two octavo text volumes, and folio atlas with thirty plates (including nine maps and portraits). Text volumes in original boards, expertly rebacked, folio atlas with matching modern paper boards, all with printed paper spine labels. Light wear to boards. Light tanning and dust soiling. Atlas plates generally clean, with an occasional marginal fox mark. Very good. Text leaves untrimmed. First French edition, with the very rare atlas not published with the English edition. This is the first Russian circumnavigation, written by its commander, and of great importance to Pacific history for his account of the attempt to open Japan to commerce, and for Krusenstern's notes on the Russian-Chinese trade. The two ships sailed from Kronstadt on July 19th, 1803, and were together until the Marquesas and Hawaii. They visited Hawaii in the summer of 1804, touching briefly on the Big Island to trade for needed supplies. From there Krusenstern sailed by himself for Kamchatka, where he made extensive surveys and ethnographic inquiries. Japan was the main focus of the expedition. They arrived at Nagasaki on Aug. 30th, 1804, with the emissary from the Tsar, and presents, including looking glasses and a portrait of Catherine the Great. Hoping to open a trade mission, and expecting more freedom than was granted the Dutch, they found themselves "greatly mistaken." They were kept in confinement and suspense, and at the audience the following April, the negotiations collapsed. The ships' repairs were put to the Imperial account, all gifts were sent back, and they were politely but firmly asked not to return. The narrative contains a detailed account of the negotiations and includes a view of Nagasaki Harbor, one of the first views of Japan published in the west. Krusenstern charted much of the west coast of Japan, made a short stop at Hokkaido, and at Aniwa Bay, and gives an account of his contact with Ainu people. The fine atlas is illustrated with twenty-one lithographic plates by Engelmann and nine engraved maps (three folding). Though unsigned, O'Reilly says the plates are probably the work of Tilesius, one of the naturalists of the ship. They include a portrait of Krusenstern, four views of Nukuhiwa and eight of Japan (including the Ainus). The maps include three of the Marquesas and four of Japanese interest. "The atlas volume is very important and is difficult to obtain" - Hill. The work was translated and revised by J.B.B. Eyries, who also wrote part of the text for Choris' VOYAGE PITTORESQUE. HILL, pp. 167-68. FORBES HAWAII 530. KROEPELIEN 695. SABIN 38382. O'REILLY & REITMAN 732.

        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.

        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.

        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.

Contemporary dark red calf, titles to black calf label to spine, gilt in compartments, elaborately panel stamped to covers, two gilt frames, gilt turn-ins, edges sprinkled red, marbled endpapers. Ownership inscription to rear free endpaper recto. Spine toned, slight bumps to tips, light foxing to prelims and endmatter, an excellent copy. First edition, first issue, with the Doge's speech on p. 151 starting "What crimes?" and lasting five-and-a-half lines, changed in the second issue to begin, "His crimes!" followed by seven additional lines. 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. Marie v. Kleist). &#150; Unterschiedlich stockfleckig. &#150; Goed. VI 44, 135 und 103; Sembdner 33; Borst 1371. [Attributes: First Edition]
