Sidler in München, links unten monogr. und dat. \"CH (18)21\", 35,5 x 52,5 cm (42,5 x 54 cm mit der Schrift). Dreyer 1a (gibt fälschlich als ausführenden Lithographen Johann Obernetter an, der jedoch nur die Schrift gezeichnet hat, vgl. Winkler 586); Abbildung in: München im Wandel der Jahrhunderte S. 48; Lentner 12309 (\"Äußerst seltenes prächtiges Blatt!\"); Pfister II, 42; München im Bild, Slg. Proebst 121; Winkler, Inkunabel der Lithographie 315, 31; Thieme-Becker Bd. XVI, S. 316. - Standpunkt für den Blick auf München ist ein Platz nahe der alten Johann-Baptist-Kirche. Jenseits der Praterinsel zeigt sich die Stadtsilhouette von der Hl. Geistkirche links, bis zur Theatinerkirche rechts. Im linken Bildrand hinter dem Hochufer erkennt man die Kürassierkaserne. Davor erstreckt sich die Isar im Mittelgrund über nahezu die gesamte Bildbreite. Etwas weiter zur Mitte hin verbindet die heute nicht mehr existierende Holzbrücke das Hochufer mit der Praterinsel. Diese ist jedoch durch den Baumwuchs des Isarhochufers nicht vollständig einsichtig. Ebenfalls heute nicht mehr vorhanden sind die auf dem Schwemmland erbauten Herbergen, welche dann über hundert Jahre später im 2. Weltkrieg zerstört wurden. Im Vordergrund ist das Isarhochufer zu sehen, auf dem sich linker Hand mehrere biedermeierlich sonntäglich gekleidete Spaziergänger auf dem Weg nach Bogenhausen befinden. - Zwei winzige Randeinrisse nahezu unsichtbar restauriert. - Äußerst seltenes Blatt und die schönste großformatige München-Ansicht des 19. Jahrhunderts. Die Ansicht auf München von Carl Friedrich Heinzmann war so populär, dass sie als Variation oder direkte Kopie von ambitionierten Laien in den unterschiedlichsten Techniken ausgeführt wurden. Zum Beispiel befindet sich im Stadtmuseum München in der Graphiksammlung diese Ansicht in Haarstickerei (45 x 56 cm) von einem 16 Jahre alten Mädchen im Jahre 1822 angefertigt. Ebenfalls existiert in der Gemäldesammlung des Stadtmuseums München eine entsprechende, unsignierte Ansicht in Öl auf Holz. Außerdem fungierte die Ansicht als Vorlage zur Bemalung von Porzellan. Heinzmann war einer der besten Porzellanmaler in der Manufaktur Nymphenburg. Versand D: 6,00 EUR BAYERN, München, Oberbayern

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM ADAMS TO JAMES MADISON, SENDING THE FORMER PRESIDENT WARM REGARDS AND ADAMS' RECENTLY PUBLISHED PAMPHLET]

      Washington, 1822. Minor toning, old folds, two separation neatly mended, tipped to a larger sheet. Very good. A warm and conciliatory letter from a future president of the United States to a former president. During his time as Secretary of State under Monroe, Adams writes to Madison at Montpelier. The letter reads, in full: "James Madison Esq Montpelier Virginia Washington 11 October 1822 Dear Sir, In requesting your acceptance of the copy herewith transmitted of a Collection of Documents recently published by me, I think it necessary to ask of your indulgence to overlook that part of it which is personally controversial. The transactions to which it relates having occurred during your Administration and the discussion involving in some degree principles and measures sanctioned by you, I have thought they would not be without interest to you, on that account, as well as because they are of no inconsiderable moment to the permanent welfare of the Union. I have much satisfaction also in being thus offered the occasion of tendering anew the grateful sense I entertain of that public confidence with which you honour'd me at a time when, as now appears, there were not wanting efforts then unknown to me to shake it. I remain with great Respect, Dear Sir, your very faithful and humble Servt. John Quincy Adams." The "Collection of Documents" to which Adams refers was THE DUPLICATE LETTERS, THE FISHERIES AND THE MISSISSIPPI. DOCUMENTS RELATING TO TRANSACTIONS AT THE NEGOTIATION OF GHENT (Washington, 1822; Shoemaker 7740). "This pamphlet was an answer to an attack on Adams by Jonathan Russell over proposals made during the Anglo-American negotiations at Ghent on the subject of the navigation of the Mississippi River. Adams's rebuke was so overwhelmingly successful that thereafter to destroy someone's reputation before the public was known as to " 'jonathanrussell' someone" (founders.archive.gov/documents/Madison/04-02-02-0506). Madison would have been keenly interested in the work, which did indeed discuss many policies and decisions of his administration.

        Promenade Autour du Monde pendant les années 1817, 1818, 1819 et 1820, sur les corvettes du Roi l'Uranie et la Physicienne, commandés par M. Freycinet

      Paris: Leblanc, 1822. Some foxing (mostly moderate), previous owner's name to title page of the atlas in an old cursive hand, some quaint children's drawings in graphite to reverse of a few of the plates, atlas in later binding.. Two volumes, octavo, and small folio atlas; the atlas with separate title, map and 25 lithographic plates; text in mid-nineteenth century quarter green roan trade binding with gilt ornament, atlas in recent quarter green polished morocco. A good set of this significant narrative of the Freycinet expedition, one of the most important of all voyages to the Pacific. This wonderful, informal account of the Freycinet voyage is written in the form of letters to a friend by the voyage's official artist Jacques Arago, and has a fine series of lithographs by him: "these entertaining letters, written in a lively and witty literary style, provide vivid descriptions of the topography and the inhabitants of the Pacific islands" (Hill). Although a lavish publication in its own right, Arago's "unofficial" account appeared years before the much grander official account of Freycinet himself even began publication, and was so popular that it would have been the source of much of what was known about the voyage. Arago, by all accounts a mercurial and innovative fellow, broke away from the well-established 'canon' of voyage literature in preparing this narrative. Much of the cumbersome detail such as wind, tides and navigational information has been omitted, resulting in a lighter, and more readable book.The Uranie, with a crew of 125 under the command of Captain Louis de Freycinet, entered the Pacific from the west to make scientific observations on geography, magnetism, and meteorology. Arago was the artist of the expedition, which visited Western Australia, Timor, Hawaii, and New South Wales. The text is peppered with Arago's personal and insightful comments on the places they visited, with long sections devoted to Western Australia and especially to New South Wales, where Arago gives an interesting account of colonial society at the close of the Macquarie era. There are good descriptions of Sydney, and the explorers' visits to Camden and the Blue Mountains. The French were entertained handsomely by the governor and other members of the local aristocracy, with expeditions to the country estates of the Macarthurs, the Oxleys and the Kings the order of the day.Arago was particularly known for his lively and arresting images of the people he encountered, with a distinct preference for the unusual or the grotesque. This set is a variant issue of the first edition, with undated cancel title pages for the two text volumes; Forbes notes two variants (see 538) of which this is an example of the second. The text and plates of the atlas appear identical to the first edition with the title-page dated 1822.

        LE JAPON, OU VOYAGE DE PAUL RICORD, Aux Iles Du Japon, En 1811, 1812 et 1813 Sur

      Paris 1822, Nepveu. Original blue boards, very good, 2 vols.. 7 hand-colored fold-out engravings & plans, very good, small. size 9 x 14.5 cm., 271+214p., French text, two largest fold-. outs: 35 x 14 cm., 25 x 14 cm., the smallest 8.5 x 14 cm.. AN IMPORTANT EARLY RUSSIAN VOYAGE TO JAPAN TITLE cont: Accompagne de Planches Inedites, d'Apres les Dessins du Cabinet de Feu M. Titzingh, Ambassadur Hollandais en Chine, et Resident au Japon. An important and most early source for Russians in Japan. Nicely illustrated with cop- per etchings, some hand colored. Ricord was a Russian & mem- ber of the Golowin expedition on the "Diana" sent by the Tsar to Japan in 1809 to survey the the Japanese coast. As he went ashore in Japan he was captured and spend some two years imprisoned in Japan, along with the whole crew [1811- 1813]. The expedition surveyed the Northern islands around Yezzo [Hokkaido, Sahalin area] before they were captured. Like Golownin, Ricord made good use of his time in Japan and recorded for posterity valuable information about the Japan- ese, their customs, geographical situation, origins national character, sciences & arts, language, religion, ceremonies, marriage, education, sea products, industries, population, military state, government. Lavishly illustrated with superb fold-out hand-colored etched plates. This work was done dur- ing the time Japan was closed to the outside world, the only window being that in Nagasaki at the closed and controlled island of Deshima where the Dutch had established their East India Company Office. This work is remarkable in view of the fact that Ricord & others were prisoners of the Japanese and this work is highly void of any negative attitudes. Rather, he has written from his very positive impressions of Japan & the Japanese. This is an extremely obscure work, that was printed in a very small edition and not widely distributed. Seldom found on the market, renders this a most unusual ear- ly primary resource on Japan.See Wildes: ALIENS IN THE EAST; Brinkley: A HISTORY OF THE JAPANESE PEOPLE; and the books by Lensen for further background and details. Fascinating early primary resource. See H. Cordier: JAPONICA 464. A L W A Y S R A R E ! Color scans can be sent by email.

        Colonie Anglaise de la Nouvelle-Galles du Sud, a la Nouvelle-Hollande

      Paris, 1822. Fine copy.. Engraved map, with inset captioned 'Ile Van-Diemen 1822', 310 x 240 mm (plate size). Intriguing map of New South Wales and Tasmania prepared by Louis de Freycinet for inclusion in the published account of his expedition titled Voyage autour du monde. This is an example of the first state without numerals. Of special interest is the inset detail of Van Diemen's Land, and two schematic elevation profiles (the first showing altitude from Sydney to Bathurst, the second from Bathurst to Mount Ellendon).Freycinet is best remembered for his voyage to Australia and the South Pacific of 1817-1820, a pivotal French expedition that advanced scientific and geographical knowledge of the region. The care and detail devoted to the preparation of this map reflect to Freycinet's considerable cartographic skill.

Early view of Warragamba River in the lower Blue Mountains, the site of Sydney's ever important Warragamba Dam from the official published account of the major French voyage of 1817-1820 to Australia and the Pacific commanded by Louis de Freycinet.The French took considerable interest in the penal colony at Port Jackson, and Freycinet was astounded by the growth of the settlement and the quality of the architecture he encountered, having previously visited Sydney Cove as an officer on the Baudin voyage of 1800-1804. This fine view reflects the curiosity of the French visitors who enjoyed warm hospitality now that Britain and France were at peace and could inspect the settlement unhindered.

Brown stitched wrs., very good,. 36 volumes main text + 9 volumes supplement, entirely wood-. block printed on hand-made paper, Illustrated with prints of. medicinal plants & phamamcopeia, title slips. R A R E. EARLY TRANSLATION & PICTORIAL FROM THE DUTCH INTO JAPANESE The complete set in 45 volumes. Some minor rubbing to the corners, edges, most title slips intact, numbered 1-36; the supplement 1-9, ca. 18 x 26 cm. This work outlined hundreds of useful plants and how to utilize them for medicine. * The book is important in its translation of technical terms from Dutch into Japanese." Therefore its apparent to this cataloger that the Udagawa author is one and the same person with an error in reading his given name. There are also some fascinatingillustrations from the Dutch that show experiments using glass beakers and some are connected to each other in a chemical process. There are also many pages of plant illustrations, each named. * WHO WAS UDAGAWA: Udagawa was distinguished by making and publishing Japan's first copper-etched anatomical atlas NAISHOO DOOHAN ZU in 1808. See G. Mestler pp.315-317 for details on this most important and famous of all Japanese medical works. Another entry on Mestler p.325 cites this current work. Udagawa was a successful physician and also a Rangaku-sha [Scholar of Dutch learning] who authored many important medical works in Japanese either inspired by or translated from from period Dutch medical resources. The current book is his 'Sui Generis' of his medical botanicals. A great set, with supplement, illustrates hundreds of plants and examples for prescription of medicine. * CONDITION: Seldom found complete if at all, an excellent example, minor light marginal stain on a few else quite clean. A fine resource and fascinating reference source. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: G. Mestler: INTRODUCTION TO WESTERN INFLUENCES IN PRE-MEIJI JAPANESE MEDICINE. * G. Mestler: A GALAXY OF OLD JAPANESE MEDICAL BOOKS, pp.315-317. * H. Bartlett: JAPANESE BOTANY DURING THE PERIOD OF WOOD-BLOCK PRINTING. This work is strangely not listed in Bartlett, but a very close relative is cited on p.549. He lists: UDAGAWA Yuan: SHOKUGAKU KEIGEN. RIGAKU NYUUMON: INTRODUCTORY STUDY OF BOTANY, [1833] which is a text showing the beginning of Western influence of illustrations of exotic plants copied from European books and the early use of Latin nomenclature, the appearance of Dutch or Malay common terms, see exhibit 111 & fig.102. One could easily speculate, that ENSEI IHO was actually written by Udagawa [one in the same] as was SHOKUGAKU KEIGEN. Bartlett states: "...the author is notable for his pioneering efforts in introducing European science & modes of instruction. A very closely related item to our copy. * Not listed in E. Merrill: A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF EASTERN ASIATIC BOTANY. * W. Whitney in his: NOTES ON THE HISTORY OF MEDICAL PROGRESS IN JAPAN. He cites Udagawa's given name as Yoan or Genshin [aka Shinsai]. Its apparent that a student of Dutch learning has renamed himself to be Joan or Yoan is a Japanese corruption of John or as pronounced in Dutch as Yo[h]an. Whitney cites several entries for information about him, as well as five of his books. All of which are of a botanical nature, covering materia medica and pharmacopoeia. * Please inquire with us as we may have a copies of the above bibliographies in stock for sale. * Scans can be sent by e-mail Images displayed may not be the actual copy in stock for sale at any given time; if you want to see the exact image of the book or edition in stock, please request this by email and an image will be returned to you by attachment. * * * * BUY WITH .

        Collection of Retained copies of Court of Common Pleas Documents of John Hutchenson vs. William McCurdy Concerning a Slander Suit Charging Adultery and Fornication with a ¿negro girl¿ Coshocton and Jefferson Counties, Ohio 1822-1823, the case tried by two famed early Ohio Lawyers: Samuel Herrick and Charles B. Goddard

      - Mainly legal folio, 23 pages, folded, docketed, sheets browned, some tears with a few holes, in good legible condition. Herrick and Goddard¿s retained copies of documents filed in this unusual case involving early Irish settlers of the Coshocton, Ohio area, which focuses on interracial relations and laws concerning adultery. Apparently a William McCurdy repeated tales that John Hutchinson (variously spelled) had fathered out of wedlock children with a black woman in Pennsylvania and then fled the area, later marrying an Ohio widow. The declaration filed September 30, 1822 in the Court of Common Pleas, Coshocton County, by Herrick & Goddard attorneys, brought suit in amount of $ 1000.00 that William McCurdy answer to a plea of trespass and complaint that he had falsely and maliciously accused Hutcheson of fornication and adultery; ¿he ran away from George G. Ashbridge¿s place after getting his negro girl with child¿ and ran away from Pennsylvania¿¿ Later testimony, among several depositions of witnesses, in 1823 stated: ¿About three years ago I told you that the said Hutchenson had got a black woman with child while living at Geo Ashbridge¿s (of Chester County, Pennsylvania), and that it cost him one hundred dollars and that he left that country immediately after.¿ One Samuel Dean also testified to hearing the same story and said that John Hutchenson was the same who married ¿the widow Leytte in my house.¿ The black woman was later named in the documents as Elizabeth Nelson and it was noted that she had a husband, William Nelson, who had left her two years prior to go into the army. She had twins at the birth, allegedly fathered by Hutchinson. The last document, filed April 18, 1823, was an attempt by attorney W. B. Hubbard to get a new trial, saying that his client was essentially convicted on hearsay. ¿Among the teachers of the earlier day were William B. Hubbard, a banker and lawyer, who subsequently went to Columbus, and became famed as a railroad magnate.¿ ¿ Graham, Albert Adams, History of Coshocton, Ohio, 1881. Although the plaintiff and defendant and the trial itself are unknown, the attorneys representing them were substantial. The defendant¿s firm of Herrick & Goddard consisted of Samuel Herrick (1779-1852), who was the U.S. Attorney for Ohio, and U.S. Representative from Ohio 4th District, 1817-1821. [See Congressional Biography]. His partner, Charles B. Goddard, was born in Plainfield, Connecticut; his father was Calvin Goddard, a Judge of the Supreme Court. Charles went to Ohio in 1817, settling in Zanesville, he married Harriet Munro Convers; was representative in the Ohio Legislature in 1838-39, and State Senator from 1845-1848, and Speaker in 1847-1848; he served as Major General of Ohio Militia, President of the Zanesville Canal and Manufacturing Company, and one of the first directors of the Zanesville Athenaeum.

"A heroic figure among travellers in the Levant" (Atabey), most of his journeys were made in the guise of Ibrahim ibn Abdallah, an Indian merchant and pilgrim to the holy places, in which character he is shown in the frontispiece, and under which name he was buried in the Muslim cemetery at Cairo. "A close and accurate observer with an intimate knowledge of the manners and language of the people among whom he travelled, he was able to accomplish feats of exploration which to others would have been impossible … His journals … were written with remarkable spirit in spite of the fact that he began to learn English only at the age of twenty-five, and that he had to jot down his observations secretly under his cloak or behind a camel for fear of exciting suspicion among his Arab guides and companions" (ODNB). Travels in Syria and the Holy Land is also noted as providing the first account of Petra by a European.

        Designs for the Pavillon [sic.] at Brighton. Humbly inscribed to His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales. By H. Repton ... with the assistance of his sons, John Adey Repton, F.S.A. and G.S. Repton, architects

      London: printed by Howlett & Brimmer for J. C. Stadler, sold by Boydell & Co., Longman, Hurst, Rees & Orme, [etc.], 1822. Folio. (21 7/8 x 13 3/4 inches). Emblematic frontispiece printed in bistre, 1 hand-coloured plan, 7 aquatint plates (one tinted with a sepia wash, six hand-coloured [one with an overpage, one double-page with two overslips, one folding with two overslips, one single-page with two overslips, one single-page with one overslip]), 11 aquatint illustrations (seven uncoloured, one with a sepia wash, three hand-coloured [two of these with a single overslip]), all by J.C. Stadler after Repton. Uncut. Expertly bound to style in full green straight-grained morocco, covers with a wide decorative border tooled in gilt and blind, spine in eight compartments with double raised bands, the bands highlighted in gilt, lettered in the second compartment, the others with an overall repeat decoration in gilt, brown endpapers A fine, wide margined copy of Repton's fascinating proposal for a royal palace at Brighton. Humphry Repton was the main successor to Lancelot 'Capability' Brown as an improver of grounds for the English gentry in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century. He was particularly noted for his Red Books. These were produced for each individual client and were made up from a manuscript description of his proposed improvements bound with Repton's own watercolour drawings of the grounds, with his proposed alterations displayed on an overlay. His proposal for Brighton pavilion was no different and the present work "was based directly on the original Red Book, which was sent to the publisher and engraver, J.C. Stadler, of 15 Villiers St., Strand. The drawings, by Repton and his sons, were sumptuously reproduced in aquatint, mostly in color, complete with their overslips and slides. Stadler himself took on the financial responsibility" (Millard, British p. 245). "Repton was first summoned to Brighton by the Prince of Wales in 1797. Payments were made to him over the next five years for works in the garden of the Prince's still modest marine villa... Then, in October 1805, Repton was requested to attend on the Prince in Brighton... The Prince and Repton met on 24 November. By 12 December Repton had returned to Brighton with a sheaf of drawings showing possible improvements... The prince was intrigued and asked for a design for an entirely new house. Repton presented his scheme in February 1806 in the form of [a]... Red book, now in the Royal Library at Windsor... By then the prince's initial enthusiasm had dulled; he was beset with financial difficulties and had laid aside all elaborate schemes for the enlargement of the pavilion" (Millard op.cit. pp.243-244). Repton's designs were inspired directly by the wonderful Indian architecture so ably pictured in Thomas and William Daniell's Oriental Scenery (1795-1808). First published in 1808, the present issue dates from 1822 and may mark an attempt to take advantage of the interest generated when architect John Nash completed his work on the Pavilion for King George IV. Between 1815 and 1822 Nash redesigned and greatly extended the Pavilion, and it is the work of Nash which can be seen today. The pavilion as it was finally completed still owed a huge debt to Indian architecture but was in a form which re-interpreted the Indian ideal in a fashion more suitable to both English tastes and climate. Abbey Scenery 57 (1822 watermarks) and cf.55; Millard British 66 (2nd edition); cf. Tooley p.207; cf. Prideaux p.349.

      1822 - 2 vol.1 f, ixxx, 592 pp. Paris, Londres, Bossange, P. Mongie Aimé, Martin Bossange (impr. veuve Daclin à Besançon), 1822, in-8, 2 vol.1 f, ixxx, 592 pp. viii, 648 pp, reliure de l'époque , demi-veau vert, dos à 4 nerfs orné de liserets dorés, tranches mouchetées, Charles Fourier fait paraitre son premier programme d'économie sociale en 1808 et continuera à développer ses idées particulièrement dans "Le nouveau monde industriel et sociétaire", en 1820 où il critique l'incohérence de l'économie contemporaine. Sous des dehors d'utopiste, Fourier portait une idée profonde qui rejoint celle de Proudhon : la suppression de l'état par l'organisation économique. L'esprit d'association, selon Fourier crée "un dévouement sans bornes aux intérêts du groupe". Le Fouriérisme a largement contribué à la diffusion des idées visionnaires, collectivistes. Exemplaire de qualité, signé par l'auteur et de belle provenance. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Symptoms, of being amused

      London: published by Thos. McLean, 1822. Oblong folio. (10 5/16 x 14 3/8 inches). 1p. letterpress "Symptoms of a Preface", otherwise engraved throughout. Engraved title with hand-coloured vignette, 41 hand-coloured plates, all by Henry Alken. Contemporary green half morocco over marbled paper-covered boards, the upper cover with onlaid green morocco label titled in gilt within a decorative border, the spine in five compartments with double raised bands, the space between the bands with a gilt fillet, lettered in gilt in the second and fourth compartments A fine unsophisticated copy of this best-selling collection of Alken's work. The interesting 'Symptoms of a Preface' leaf (not mentioned by either Schwerdt or Tooley) is in effect an advertisement for the second volume of the Symptoms (which only got as far as a further 18 plates). The preface also mentions other similar works that Alken was undertaking, and jokingly offers the book combined with convivial company as a sterling cure for "Dull Care". The work as a whole offers a window onto a certain Regency social milieu: fashionable and middle class sporting England. The humour is aimed at them with the understanding that they will be the most likely purchasers. Tooley 57; Schwerdt I, p.27.

        View Near Fort Montgomery. No. 18 of the Hudson River Port Folio

      New York: Henry J. Megarey, 1822. Aquatint, colored by hand, by John Hill, after W.G. Wall. The plate number "18" has been written in ink in the title. A few minor abrasions in the title and mild soiling. Superb example of one of the greatest and earliest works devoted to the American landscape Wall and Hill demonstrate in this view their great talent for investing apparently simple and random scenes with grandeur and intrigue. The focal point of the image is an unadorned raft with a number of men shown from so far away that there no distinguishing individual characteristics: they are mere figures floating down the calm, mirror-like river. The hills that slope down into the river are reflected to such a degree that it's hard to discern exactly where the hills stops and the reflection begins. The succession of hills and the river recede into the distance beneath a gray sky, also reflected in the river. The hills, river and sky seem to have a quiet liveliness of quite a different order than that of the active little figures on the raft. " The Hudson River Portfolio , a series of twenty views...celebrates the beauty of the Hudson and its surroundings. It is amongst the finest collections of New York State views ever published...The aquatints show us the region of the Hudson's headwaters, the rapids it creates on its journey downstream, the bridges it makes imperative overhead, the trade that its navigability spawns, and, most of all, the ennobling topographic settings through which it passes. In the final view, New York from Governor's Island, we see the Hudson at the end of its journey, where it joins the East River in New York Bay...William Guy Wall...was a native of Dublin who came to America in 1818...Beginning in 1826, he exhibited frequently at the National Academy of Design...[He was skillful with atmospheric perspective in his landsacpes, and he created almost spiritual effects with light, at a time when viewers were used to literal depictions. Between 1828 and 1835 he remained in America, but then returned to Dublin for twenty years. He came back to America for four years between 1856 and 1860, before again returning in Ireland where he lived for the remaining four years of his life] Wall frequently worked in tandem with John Hill, whose emigration from England predated that of Wall by two years...According to Koke, 'the artistic achievement for which Hill is best known...was the Hudson River Portfolio, a landscape series closely akin to the Picturesque Views of American Scenery recently finished for the Careys' ( John Hill Master of Aquatint , p.86)...Hill, an aquatintist virtually without peer in America, was called in to fill the place vacated by John Rubens Smith, who dissociated himself from the Portfolio before he finished engraving the four plates of the first number...Hill belonged to a small group of English-trained engravers who raised the level of American print-making to an extraordinary degree" (Deak, pp. 217-218). Second state of 3 (with number `18' added in manuscript to title) Koke, A Checklist #82; Deak, Picturing America #320.

Schon beim ersten Blick, den Dein Auge auf mich that, wurde ich Dein Schuldner, ich sah den Himmel! Was konnte ich Dir wieder zeigen? Nur den Abglanz Deines Auges konntest Du befreundet in mir wieder finden. Du bist so gut u. brav, jedermann sagt es mir [.]" (Br. v. 21. IX. 1822). - "Ungewiß ob Du nicht heute wieder eben so hart seyn würdest als vergangenen Mittwoch, wollte ich Dir schon heute am frühen Morgen schreiben, damit mir die Zeit dazu nicht fehlen möchte, wenn ich die Hoffnung verlohren, von Dir ein Wort zu erfahren, was ich so schmerzlich erwartet. Die Hand versagte mir aber den Dienst, meine Gedanken gingen im Wir[r]warr umher, u. ich wußte nicht wo anfangen noch aufhören. Wenn ich Dich nicht so liebte wie es uns möglich ist zu lieben, wenn ich fürchten könnte daß Du mich hättest mißverstehen können, so würde es mir nicht schwer fallen zu glauben Dich beleidigt zu haben [.]" (Br. v. 28. IX. 1822). - Der in Steinlah bei Hannover geborene Künstler studierte in Dresden, Rom und Florenz und wurde 1838 Professor der Kupferstechkunst an der Dresdner Akademie.

        Broadside. Begins: El General San Martin. Presencié la declaracion de la Independencia de los estados de Chile y el Perù ...

      Pueblo Libre [i.e., Lima]: No publisher/printer Folio (32 cm; 12.5"). [1] p.. 1822 Weary from ten years of war, sacrifice, and then the politics of the nascent Peruvian republic, Gen. San Martin, liberator of Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, and Peru, here announces his retirement from public life. An Argentine by birth, San Martin's introduction to war happened not in America but in Europe where he was serving in the Spanish army against England, Portugal, and finally France. After the peninsula fell to the French, he returned to America and fought with and soon led one of the main rebel armies. The struggle lasted more than a decade, but on 12 July 1821, he took Lima from the Royalists, saw Peru officially declared independent on the 28th, and was himself named "Protector of Peru" on 3 August. Just about a year later, on 22 September 1822, via this document, he resigned his position and retired permanently from public life and service. "The presence of a lucky soldier . . . is feared by newly constituted states; [and] for my part, I am tired of hearing it said that I want to be the sovereign." "Peruvians: I leave you with an established national government; if you repose in it all of your confidence, count on triumph; if you don't, anarchy will devour you." And with that he left Peru, returned to Argentina briefly, then sailed to Europe where he lived in several cities, only once attempting to return to America, but always maintaining a keen interest in the fate of his native Argentina. Searches of WorldCat, NUC, CCILA, COPAC, and the Catálogo Colectivo del Patrimonio Bibliográfico locate two copies worldwide: one in the U.S., and one in Chile. There is a very old unverified report of a copy in the Biblioteca Nacional in Lima. Browning, age-toning, some crumpling and tattering. Small loss of paper along the wide bottom margin. No worming. Housed in a quarter red morocco clamshell box.
