        Fatherless Rosa; or, The Dangers of the Female Life. Expressly written as a companion to Fatherless Fanny

      London: Printed for T. Kelly, 17 Paternoster-Row, by W. Clowes, Northumberland-court, Strand, 1822. First (?) edition, bound from the original 22 numbers, with variant title page. Additional engraved title page with vignette, bearing the imprint "Thomas Kelly"). 7 (of 8) engraved plates - LACKING the engraved frontispiece portrait of Huish. 522, [2] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Contemporary brown calf, black leather spine label, with the original owner's name stamped in gilt at the foot of the spine ("W.M. Emmons"). Binding generally worn and slightly rubbed overall, but sound. Lacking the front free endpaper. Engraved title page a little dusty, early owners's signatures on the frost pastedown and on verso of engraved title. The Dangers of Female Life - Fatherless Rosa, 1822 A spin-off from the hugely successful Gothic romance, FATHERLESS FANNY. Quite rare - Block and Summers list editions of 1834 only. The British Library has a copy (same collation) bearing the imprint "Printed by T. Kaygill for William Emans, 1820", but with the same "Thomas Kelly" engraved title page, as here. It seems possible that the publishing was shared between Kaygill and Kelly, and as the parts were published between 1820 and the Autumn of 1821, it is likely that the two publishers issued letterpress title pages to accompany the same sheets with variant dates. As the engraved title page was issued with the first number and bore a date of 1820, while the printed title page was issued with the last, Kaygill and Emans chose to date their letterpress title page to match the engraved title, while Kelly followed the more frequent practice of dating his ahead. Both issues are rare.

        Kinderspiel in K. Hessen", vergrößert, 8 Kinder und mit verändertem Hintergrund.

      - Radierung, um 1822/25, nach einer Zeichnung von 1815, auf Velin. 20,8:27 cm. Literatur: Stoll 154, II (von II) mit der Schrift, ohne Randeinfälle. – Mit Rändchen um die Plattenkante, zwei kleine restaurierte Stellen. Die Vorzeichnung für die hier vorliegende Radierung wurde zwar 1815 in Kassel ausgeführt, doch erst nach 1822 radiert, da es nicht in dem 1823 veröffentlichten Mappenwerk mit italienischen Motiven erschien. In der Radiertechnik steht es der „Apenninen-Landschaft" (Stoll 211) nahe, Licht und Schatten sind jedoch noch kontrastreicher behandelt (vgl. Ausst. Katalog: 200 Jahre Brüder Grimm.

Der vor allem als Radierer tätige Grimm war 1804-1808 Schüler der Kasseler Kunstakademie bei Gottlieb Kobold (1769-1809), Andreas Range (1762-1828) und Ernst Friedrich Ferdinand Robert (1763-1843). Durch seine Brüder Jacob und Wilhelm Grimm wurde er mit Clemens Brentano (1778-1842) und Achim von Arnim (1781-1831) bekannt, mit denen er zusammenarbeitete. Wohl 1807 lernte Grimm Bettine Brentano (1785-1859) kennen, von der er zahlreiche Porträts anfertigte. In November 1808 zog er nach Landshut zu Brentano und dessen Schwager Friedrich Carl von Savigny (1779-1861). Auf ihre Vermittlung ging er nach München und erlernte Kupferstechen bei Carl Ernst Christoph Heß (1755-1828). Zugleich studierte er an der Münchner Akademie unter Andreas Seidl (1760-1834).

        Recueil de poemes, d'histoires droles et de proverbes (signes 'T.S.V.J'). Document manuscrit (France, XIXe).

      S.d. (vers 1822),. in-8°, 128 p. n.n. (dont 59 blanches), calligraphie sobre et bien lisible, quelques ratures (ameliorations) dans le texte, deux ex libris ms. au crayon 'Marc. Ech.' et 'Rossier' (?), cartonnage en papier marbre cailloute a veines, passablement frotte, dos abime, tranches vertes.. Curieux document extremement interessant contenant 7 proverbes, 3 contes humoristiques grivois, 18 compositions poetiques de style et de longueur variables (dont 2 avec air, typiques du Vaudeville), ainsi qu'une composition de 20 pieces poetiques intitulee "Bobeche", dont le sous-titre du premier poeme indique "de Gaspard Lavise". La grande majorite des compositions sont signees 'T.S.V.J' et sont tres certainement de sa main, puisqu'il ne s'est pas prive, a certains endroits, de biffer et d'introduire des variantes dans ses textes. Une piece intitulee "Chansons" est visiblement d'une autre main et est signee 'L.B. 1822'. A cote de certains poemes serieux (qui ne sont pas les mieux reussis) comme "Romance de Marie Stuart retournant en Ecosse", d'autres sont d'une veine typiquement satyrique: "Surprise de Louis XVIII" (composition qui se moque de la fuite du roi devant Bonaparte en 1815) ou "Chapitre General des Cordeliers" (qui tourne en derision l'Assemblee generale de cet ordre religieux). D'autres compositions sont liees au vaudeville en tant que chansons ou tirades theatrales (Bobeche, par exemple). Outre ces poemes, les proverbes sont tres amusants et sont impregnes de sagesse (et grivoiserie!) campagnarde: "Mefiance - Du devant d'une femme - Du derriere d'une mule - De tous les cotes du puits". La grossierete un peu naive des 3 contes humoristiques ne manquait pas de faire sourire l'audience des tavernes ou des convives d'un repas bien arrose: "Deux jeunes filles s'entretenaient un jour & se demandaient de quoi etait confectionne l'objet de leur affection, l'une disait que ce devait etre un os, l'autre un boyau ou un oeuf. Apres s'etre assez combattues sur ce sujet, la premiere qui en avait bien tate, conclu(t) par ces paroles: "Je suis sure que j'ai raison parce qu'il est tombe beaucoup de moelle sur mes sabots".Please notify before visiting to see a book.

        Veduta del Ponte Molle sul Tevere due miglia lontano da Roma. Questo Ponte e stato ristaurato, e costruito l'Arco Trionfale A..dal Sommo Pontefice PIO VII. Regnante

      Rome.. 1822.. Copperplate engraving, 18 x 24 1/2 inches on sheet size 19 x 25 1/4. A couple of soft creases to the paper, short edge tears, pinhole in upper left and right corners and lower left corner. Narrow margins. Image in very good condition; a rich impression. View of Ponte Molle over the Tevere (Tiber), two miles from Rome. This impressive engraving by Luigi Rossini (1790-1857) is from the Le Antichita Romane series, depicting the antiquities of Rome and environs. Carrying on the tradition of Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720-1778) and himself an architect, Rossini's prints celebrated the Classical Tradition and appealed to the well-to-do tourists on the Grand Tour and to architects and designers. The engravings powerfully evoke the glories of Ancient Rome, while also providing the modern viewer with glimpses of this magnificent city in the early 19th century. .

He made a copperplate map of Zagreb diocese, called Mappa Diocesis Zagrabiensis, which was published in 1822 and 1825. The map, which was commissioned by bishop Maksimilijan Vrhovec, is Szeman's greatest work and at the same time the most remarkable work in Croatian cartography at the beginning of the 19th century. Szeman chose Franjo Karac (Ferenc Karacs), one of the best copperplate engravers and cartographers in Hungary, to engrave the content and take care of graphic design of the map. Its content presents an extent of Zagreb diocese and its division into parishes with villages that belong to them. The map consists of nine sheets of variable size; the third sheet contains a large size view of Zagreb of the period. The last sheet contains two scales with measures in German or geographic miles and walking hours. The map contains a legend with explanations of 75 symbols used for various ecclesiastical and cultural facilities, for natural resources, and for the borders of counties, archdeaconries and districts, parishes and branches on the territory of the diocese; the second table contains a list of parishes and regiments, with a number of fortresses, towns, market towns and inhabitants by denomination and their areas in square kilometres."

Fichter, Weisslingen/Schweiz, wird das Aquarell in das in Vorbereitung befindliche Werkverzeichnis aufnehmen. Provenienz: Laut Auskunft des Vorbesitzers aus der Sammlung R. Rubinstein, London. Nach einem Besuch der Pariser Académie des sciences und einem Aufenthalt in München ging der weitgehend autodidaktisch ausgebildete Landschaftsmaler und Aquarellist Rudolf Müller 1822 gemeinsam mit seinem Freund, dem ebenfalls in Basel geborenen Künstler Fr. Horner (1800-1864) nach Neuenburg, dann nach Neapel, wo er bis 1835 lebte. 1837-1838 unternahm er wiederum mit Horner eine Reise nach Griechenland und Konstantinopel. Anschließend ließen sich die Künstlerfreunde gemeinsam in Rom nieder. 1842 reiste er mit Horner, J. J. Frey (1813-1865) und J.J. Burckhardt-Steffani (1821-1903) nach Neapel, Paestum und Salerno. 1848 zwang ihn die Revolution zur Rückkehr nach Basel, wo er zunächst für zwei Jahre wieder gemeinsam mit Horner eine Wohnung bezog. Später kehrte er nach Rom zurück, wo er 1864 heiratete. 1879 erhielt er eine halbjährliche Rente von 1000 Fr. aus dem Birmannfonds.

Gedruckt bei Lemercier in Paris, verlegt bei Velten in Paris, St. Petersburg und Karlsruhe, J. Veith in Zürich und Hering & Remington in London. Literatur: Ausst. Katalog: Johann Friedrich Overbeck 1789-1869. Zur zweihundertsten Wiederkehr seines Geburtstages, Lübeck 1989, vgl. S. 47, Abb. 6; Boetticher II, Teil 1, S. 199, Nr. 18; Katalog neuere Meister 19. und 20. Jahrhundert, Kunsthalle Karlsruhe, Karlsruhe 1971, vgl. Bd. 1, S. 181, Nr. 509 sowie Bd. II, Abb. S. 311). – In den breiten Rändern nicht ganz frisch. Friedrich Overbeck, der als einer der bedeutendsten Vertreter der Nazarener gilt, erhielt ab 1804 Unterricht durch den Lübecker Maler J.N. Peroux (1771-1849). 1806 ging er nach Wien, um an der dortigen Akademie zu studieren. Hier war er Mitbegründer des „Lukasbund", einer Gruppe von Künstlern, die die Erneuerung der Kunst im Geiste des Christentums nach Vorbildern alter deutscher und italienischer Kunst anstrebte. Unzufrieden mit dem Wiener Unterricht ging er gemeinsam mit seinen Künstlerfreunden Fr. Pforr (1788-1812) und L. Vogel (1788-1879) nach Rom. Hier lebte er gemeinsam mit gleichgesinnten Künstlern in klösterlicher Gemeinschaft in Sant`Isidoro und konvertierte zum Katholizismus. Durch die Beteiligung an der Ausmalung an der Casa Bartholdy, der Residenz des preußischen Gesandten, 1816/1817 konnte er seinen künstlerischen Ruhm begründen. In den nächsten Jahren lehnte er verschiedene Angebote, eine Professur an den Akademien in München oder Düsseldorf oder an der Städelschule in Frankfurt zu übernehmen, ab. Er blieb in Rom seßhaft, wo er hochverehrt von Freunden und zahlreichen Schülern im Alter von 80 Jahren verstarb.

        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. Two volumes, octavo, and small folio atlas; the atlas with separate title, table and 23 lithograph plates, some scattered foxing; text in period-style quarter calf with double labels, the atlas uncut in the original blue-grey boards with printed paper label on the front cover; a fine set. FINISHED. The artist's account: the first published narrative of the Freycinet voyage. First edition: a fine and attractive 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.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. He would return many times to his experiences, and his accounts were enormously popular.

        Quedlinburg, Blick zur Kanzel der Stiftskirche St. Servatius.

      . Aquarell, über Bleistift, auf festem Papier, rechts unten monogrammiert und datiert "18 R 63.". 35,2:27 cm. Provenienz: Sammlung Königin Olga von Württemberg (1822-1892). Ein Album mit 36 Blättern und weitere Aquarelle aus dem Besitz der Königin wurden 1973 bei Stuker in Bern versteigert (vgl. Auktion 125, 17. Mai 1973, Nrn. 6238-6273). Literatur: Pfisterer R 10-R 13 und R. 21. Unser ansprechendes Kircheninterieur, das als Motiv auf die holländische Architekturmalerei der ersten Hälfte des 17. Jahrhunderts zurückgeht, zeigt einen eher ungewöhnlichen, eigenwilligen Bildausschnitt: In Nahsicht präsentiert der Künstler eine Ecke des Seitenschiffs des weltberühmten "Quedlinburger Doms" - hervorzuheben ist etwa im Bildvordergrund links einer der aufwendig gearbeiteten, mit Tiermotiven geschmückten Pfeiler. Neben der Komposition zeugen das eher monochrom gehaltene, auf den Farben Braun und Beige basierende Kolorit sowie die feine Beobachtung des Lichts vom Können des Künstlers.. Der überwiegend heimische Landschaftsmotive malende Künstler Robert Riefenstahl war ein Schüler des Künstlerehepaars Georg Heinrich (1804-1879) und Elise Crola (1809-1878); darüber hinaus besuchte er die Düsseldorfer Kunstakademie. 1994 wurde der Schloßberg von Quedlinburg von der UNESCO zum Weltkulturerbe erklärt. Die 1021 geweihte Stiftskirche St. Servatius steht auf diesem Schloßberg, sie kann auf eine fast tausendjährige Geschichte zurückblicken und zählt zu den bedeutendsten Bauten der Romanik. Hier wurden nicht nur adelige Töchter erzogen, sondern sie war auch Sitz mehrerer Reichstage und kirchlicher Feste, zudem Regierungssitz während der Unmündigkeit Otto III. Quedlinburg war die wichtigste Pfalz König Heinrichs I. (876-936).

        The Liberal Verse and Prose from the South

      London: Printed by and for John Hunt, 1822. First edition, first issue with the four separate content leaves and one for each volume inserted instead and the 11 line errata. Frontispieces (offset onto titles). 2 vols. 8vo. The four issues, all issued, bound in two volumes. Quarter contemporary red morocco and matching boards. Some wear to joints, light browning of text, Very hasndsome set. Contains the first appearances of Shelley's 'song written for an Indian Air," and "May-Day Night," Byron's "The Vision of Judgment," "Heaven and Earth," "The Blues, a Literary Ecologue" and Byron's translation of the first canto of Pulci's "Morgante Maggiore." There are also pieces by Hazlitt, Hunt and others of the romantic poets. The Hunt brothers had solicited Byron's assistance to attract subscribers, and he had lent his name to the venture, named the magazine "The Liberal" and supplied contributions out of sympathy for their financial condition. But, by February 1823 Byron had had enough: " as long as I thought 'the Liberal' could be of service to him and to his brother-I was happy to conduce to it-though I opposed it from the beginning- knowing how it would end-but that as it answers little to them- and is highly injurious to me in every way-I wish to retire from it" (letter to Kennaid, 27 Feb. 1823) The first number of "The Liberal" (October 15, 1822) was severely attacked because of Byron's "Vision of Judgment" which satirized Southey's "A Vision of Judgment," made mockery of George III's meeting with the tribunal of Heaven and derided the Poet Laureate's reputation. Southey's work had included an attack on Byron referring to him as the leader of the 'satanic School" in the preface. Byron had warned John Hunt, "to pause-or erase passages likely to be obnoxious" (letter to Kinnaird 30 October 1822) obviously without effect.

        The Extraordinary Affliction, and Gracious Relief of a Little Boy; Supposed to be the Effects of Spiritual Agency, Carefully examined, and faithfully narrated; with Observations on Demonic Possession and Animadversions on some of the curious arts of Superstition [bound with] Further Observations on Demonic Possession and Animadversions on some of the Curious Arts.

      For the Author, Plymouth & Frome 1822 - Hardcover. 2 Vols in One. Small octavo. viii + 156pp. + 114pp. Beautiful half-leather craft binding by renowned London book-binder, Bernard C. Middleton. Half brown leather over marbled papered boards, raised bands & gilt titles & decorations on spine. Marbled endpapers. A famous account of supposed Demonic possession, which took place in Plymouth (England) in 1820. It centred on a 10 year old boy, John Evens, who was said to exhibit all the symptoms of a Biblical demoniac, having fits, dancing convulsively, speaking in different voices, and apparently relaying the utterances of a demon. After medical intervention (bleeding and blistering!) failed a Methodist minister, James Heaton, was called in and undertook two exorcisms, apparently with success. Heaton first published an account of the case, under the title "The Demon Expelled [etc.]" in Plymouth in 1820. The book attracted considerable attention, and some criticism, which the author addressed in a greatly expanded second edition, which was released, re-titled as "The Extraordinary Affliction, and Gracious Relief of a Little Boy" in 1822 (i.e. the first book within this volume). That same year Heaton also published his "Further Observations on Demonic Possession and Animadversions on some of the Curious Arts," a work in which he explores other accounts of possession (mostly Biblical), "The Scriptural Mode of Expelling Demons" etc. etc. The two works are here bound together. From the collection of Dr. M. H. Coleman, with his handwritten name & ex-libris seal blind-stamped on the second front blank page. Top-edge-gilt. Tiny pinhole & small black mark slightly affecting the word "Affliction" on the title-page,of the first volume. Thumb-print sized lightly discolored patch at bottom of second title-page (offsetting onto facing blank), minor foxing to edges of several pages, else tight, clean & complete in VG+ condition.

Auf Initiative eines Freundes der Familie kam der Bauernsohn nach Zürich als Lehrling in die Kunsthandlung Heinrich Füsslis. 1817 kam er auf Empfehlung Füsslis nach Neapel zu dem bekannten Maler W. Huber (1787-1871), wo es ihm aber nicht gefiel und auch nur sieben Monate dort arbeitete. 1821 unternahm er eine Reise nach Sizilien. Seit 1825 weilte er in Rom, hier war er mit H. Vernet (1758-1836) befreundet. Eine Reise nach Athen mit Ausflügen nach Konstantinopel, Smyrna und Troja folgte in den Jahren 1832-1835. Ab 1835 war er wieder in Neapel. 1838 kehrte er über Rom und Florenz nach Zürich zurück, 1840-1842 hielt er sich in London auf, wo er auch heiratete. Wolfensberger galt als eigenwilliger Künstler, dessen in der 1. Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts entstandenen Zeichnungen sehr modern wirken.

        THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE ROMAN HISTORY

      Edinburgh, printed for W. and C. Tait, 1822.. FIRST EDITION 1822 translated by JOHN BELLENDEN. 4to, approximately 245 x 180 mm, 9½ x 7¼ inches, pictorial and decorated initials, pages: xii, viii, 479, finely bound in full leather, triple ruled gilt border with corner motifs and small gilt armorial device in centre of covers, raised bands to spine, gilt decoration in compartments, gilt lettering, all edges gilt, double ruled gilt inner dentelles (turn ins), marbled endpapers. Hinges rubbed and darkened, one or two minor marks to covers, couple of light scratches on lower cover, front inner paper hinge cracked, binding tight and firm, armorial bookplate on front pastedown, another small bookplate to front endpaper, endpapers slightly foxed, very small pale brown stain to 2 margins of prelims, intermittent small pale damp mark affects upper inner corner on first 65 pages, otherwise contents very clean and bright. A very good copy in a handsome binding. John Bellenden (flourished 1533-1587?) of Moray was a Scottish writer born towards the close of the 15th century, and educated at St. Andrews and Paris. He was requested by James V of Scotland in 1535 to translate Livy's History of Rome into the vernacular language of Scotland but it seems he never proceeded beyond the Fifth Book. He had already at the king's request translated Hector Boece's Historia Gentis Scotorum as Chroniklis of Scotland and this was published in 1536. However apart from 2 short extracts the Livy translation had never been published until this edition of 1822. The Chroniklis and the Livy by John Bellenden remain the earliest existing specimens of Scottish literary prose. According to the Notice at the head of the book, the Livy "contains more of vernacular Scotch than the Chronicles of Scotland, which appear to have been contaminated by Latin phraseology, and perhaps too, by the emendations of a printer accustomed to the language of England".

        A Geographical Historical and Topographical Description of Van Diemen's Land

      London: John Souter, 1822. Octavo, with folding engraved view of Hobart Town after a sketch by Evans, early owner's name on title-page, a few spots; half calf, marbled boards, neatly rebacked to match. The text stolen by Jeffreys, now rightfully published. First edition of Evans' important and influential emigrants' guide to Tasmania. A separately issued map was available to buy with the book (which was 7s. 6d. without the map and a hefty 15 shillings with it) but the book is much more often seen without it.Evans' was the first separate work on the colony to have been written, though in fact it was beaten into print by a similar work by the commander of HMS Kangaroo Charles Jeffreys, who plagiarised Evans, from a stolen manuscript. Evans gives an excellent account of the geography, history and prospects of Van Diemen's Land and includes detailed procedures for prospective emigrants. Appendices list landholders, prices for agricultural produce and other relevant information for settlers.Evans was Macquarie's favourite explorer and was appointed Surveyor General of Van Diemen's Land as a reward for his fine services in exploring the territory west of the Blue Mountains and as second-in-command to Oxley. His guide to the colony began life as a guidebook for Macquarie during his tour of Van Diemen's Land; it is the best description of the state of the colony in the first decades of its existence. Evans' explorations and surveys were foremost in advancing the geographical knowledge of the colony - 'his achievements would have momentous effects on the future prosperity of the colony', as Macquarie himself said.
