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.

      1822. first edition. The Twelve Scarce Faces of Charles Mathews by Robert Cruikshank[CRUIKSHANK, (Isaac Robert, illustrator]. [MATHEWS, Charles].

According to the ABPC Index, only two copies have come to auction since 1954. Not found in any of the usual sources. Isaac Robert Cruikshank, commonly known as Robert, was George's brother, not to be confused with Issac Cruikshank, their father.The etchings are portraits of Charles Mathews in the different characters played by him in his entertainment "At Home," with several lines of dialogue engraved beneath.Charles Mathews (1776-1835) was an English theater manager and comic actor, popularly celebrated during his career for his gift of impersonation and skill at table entertainment. His play, "At Home," in which he played every character, was the first monopolylogue (a form of entertainment in which one actor plays many roles) and the defining work in the genre.Archibald Constable (1774-1827), Mathews' correspondent, was a Scottish publisher, bookseller and stationer. The Constable publishing business thrived and continued into the twentieth century, issuing a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books. It continues today as Constable & Robinson.Not in Abbey.

        D.D. Fauna Novae Hollandiae

      Uppsala: Royal Academy Press, 1822. Small quarto, [ii], 8 pp.; a very fine copy, uncut and unbound, as issued. A scarce and significant academic paper, this was the first serious attempt at compiling a formal fauna of Australia, in the form of a dissertation presented by Huss before Carl Thunberg, Linnaeus's great disciple and successor. Thunberg, using the traditional method of publishing his own work through the medium of his students' dissertations, "mapped" much of the flora and fauna of South Africa, China, Japan, and, in this instance, Australia. His prolific output included especially important work on both the botany and zoology of South Africa and the far east, but this is his only work that deals specifically with Australia. This is an especially fine copy of this rare and important piece.

        Hl. Nikolaus mit zwei Engeln.

      . Radierung, 1822, auf festem Velin. 16,4:14,8 cm. Im breiten Rand etwas fleckig. Provenienz: Sammlung Pachen, nicht bei Lugt. Literatur: Andresen/Heller 8; Fischer/v. Blankenhagen WV 362 A; Fecker 26. Radierung nach einem 1822 entstandenen Altarbild in der katholischen Pfarrkirche in Ichenheim (vgl. Fischer/v. Blankenhagen WV 362).. Marie Ellenrieder wurde von dem Konstanzer Miniaturmaler J. Einsle (1794 - nach 1850) unterrichtet. Danach erhielt sie als erste Frau die Zulassung zum Kunststudium an der Akademie in München. Anschließend wurde sie Porträtmalerin an südwestdeutschen Fürstenhöfen (Hohenzollerischer Hof in Sigmaringen, Fürstenbergischer Hof in Donaueschingen), ebenso malte sie religiöse Themen. 1822-1824 hielt sie sich in Rom auf, dort machte sie die Bekanntschaft von Louise Seidler (1786-1866) sowie von F. Overbeck (1789-1869) und weiteren Nazarenern; häufig ausbleibende Anerkennung durch ihre männlichen deutsch-römischen Kollegen führte jedoch zur Ausbildung einzelgängerischen Verhaltens. Ein einjähriger Aufenthalt in Florenz folgte. Nach ihrer Rückkehr nach Baden ist die nahezu ausschließliche Fokussierung auf religiöse Kunst zu beobachten. Seit 1829 lebte sie in Karlsruhe und wurde zur großherzoglich-badischen Hofmalerin ernannt. Reisen nach Zürich, Dresden und München folgten. Ab den 1830er Jahren folgte durch eine schon seit dem ersten Italienaufenthalt in selbstzerstörerische Selbstanklagen und Depressionen fallende Gemütslage sowie durch Ablehnung und Verleugnung der eigenen Sinnlichkeit und Körperlichkeit und Zweifel an den eigenen künstlerischen Leistungen die zunehmende Abkehr vom gesellschaftlich-öffentlichen Leben. 1834/35 kehrte sie nach Konstanz zurück. 1838-1840 unternahm sie die zweite Italienreise. In den 40er und 50er Jahren gelingt es ihr, nach Jahren mit Krankheit und Depressionen, erneut zu ihrer schöpferischen Kraft zurückzufinden.

A fine copy."Twelve numbers, each with a colored frontispiece, in paper printed wrappers, were issued [1822-23], and then in a volume half-canvas boards, with paper printed label" (Cohn). According to Cohn, the plates "Pigs among roses," and The parson and the Quaker" are by George and Robert; "How happy could I be with either," solely by George; two plates dated Jan 29, 1823 ("Stop thief" and "Moll Row") signed I.R. Cruikshank are by Robert and George.Complete copies with all twelve parts are scarce; only three are found in institutional holdings worldwide. Most institutional copies are single parts from the series, which publish contemporary theatrical entertainments.The London bindery of W. T. Morrell was established c. 1861 as successor to the firm begun by Francis Bedford, who, in turn, had assumed control of the esteemed bindery of Charles Lewis. Sarah T. Prideaux, in "Modern Bookbindings," states that Morrell had a very large business that supplied "all the booksellers with bindings designed by his men," bindings that were "remarkable for their variety and merit."

        Set of the three Reports of Inquiry

      House of Commons: 1822-, 1823. Folio, the three works bound together; some foxing; old quarter calf, rubbed, rebacked retaining original spine, vellum corners. Full set of the Bigge reports. A fine set of the series of reports of the official enquiry into Governor Macquarie's administration of New South Wales, comprising: 1) Report of the Commissioner of Inquiry into the State of the Colony (here in its first issue of June 1822, with the libel against William Wentworth. This first issue was withdrawn and is now rare. It was later reprinted on August 5 1822). 2) Report of the Commissioner of Inquiry on Judicial Establishments (February 1823). 3) Report of the Commissioner of Inquiry on Agriculture and Trade (March 1823). John Thomas Bigge was appointed Royal Commissioner, with sweeping powers, by Lord Bathurst - ostensibly to examine the transportation system, but in fact to cast a critical eye over every aspect of Macquarie's controversial administration. Bigge was unyielding in his critique and relations between the two were strained. However, by the time his reports were published, Macquarie had already resigned. Bigge's reports were central to the political history of the 1820s, and their influence can be seen in the later constitutional and political history of Australia. Indeed, it was as a result of Bigge's recommendations that the New South Wales Act of 1823 was ratified, authorising the establishment of a Supreme Court and Legislative Council in New South Wales, as well as a Supreme Court in Van Diemen's Land, and marked an important step towards responsible government in the colonies. Bigge's reports are also essential sources for information about conditions in New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land in the 1820s, not least because of his recognition of the growing importance of the colonies for wealthy free settlers. Bigge had urged the Colonial Office to seek places away from Sydney both to send intractable offenders and to encourage free settlement by releasing land for graziers. It was as a direct result of his report that the Moreton Bay area was first explored with a view to future settlement. Consequently, Oxley was commissioned by Brisbane to reconnoitre the north coast. He explored Moreton Bay and named the Brisbane River; his report ultimately led to the foundation of the Moreton Bay colony.

        Description Géologique des Environs de Paris...Nouvelle Édition, dans laquelle on a inséré la Description d'un Grand Nombre de Lieux de l'Allemagne, de la Suisse, de l'Italie, etc., qui présentent des Terrains analogues a ceux du Bassin de Paris

      16 lithographed plates (one folding) & two hand-colored engraved maps (one of which is very large & folding). 3 p.l., viii, 2, 5-428 pp. Large 4to, cont. marbled boards (small defect towards head of spine), green leather lettering piece on spine. Paris: G. Dufour & E. d'Ocagne, 1822. New edition, a rewritten and greatly expanded version of Cuvier and Brongniart's Géographie Minéralogique des Environs de Paris (1808 & 1811). This geological classic extended geological time, showed an alteration between marine and fresh water conditions, and demonstrated the value of precisely collected and identified fossils as criteria for tracing a detailed series of strata. Brongniart, with the assistance of Cuvier, "drew up a systematic table of the succession of stratigraphical horizons in accordance primarily with the sequence of the deposits of the ground, and with the particular fossils characterising each group of deposits."-Zittel, p. 104. Of the nine formations Cuvier and Brongniart identified, only two were known in Werner's system. This edition contains for the first time Brongniart's descriptions of strata from many different parts of Europe. This additional evidence led him to stress the primacy of fossil evidence over that of lithology as a criterion for age, wherever the two sources of evidence were found to conflict. Apart from the minor binding defect, a fine, crisp, and large copy. The folding plate has a clean tear in a fold without loss. ❧ D.S.B., II, p. 493-97. Zittel, pp. 104-06. .

        Aberdeen from the South

      Smith & Elder, London 1822 - An important topographical view of Aberdeen, county town of Aberdeenshire in north east Scotland This view should perhaps be seen as an immediate forerunner of John Clark's own Views in Scotland published in London between 1824 and 1825 with a total of 35 plates. The view is taken from the south bank of the Dee looking across the river to what a contemporary gazetteer calls 'New Aberdeen', the same work notes that the town was situated 'on rising ground, on the north bank of the Dee, near the mouth of the river, and about 1 1/2 miles to the south of the river Dona royal burgh and parish in the county of the same name.' (Fullarton [publishers] A Gazetteer of the World 1856, I, p.12). The population in 1821 was 26,484 and had risen to 35,260 by 1841. The gazetteer notes that New Aberdeen 'is a large and handsome city with spacious streets. Union-street is upwards of a mile in length, and of great beauty. Broad-street. is celebrated as having been the residence of Lord Byron while under his mother's care.' The chief sources of income were from the docks, salmon fishing, machine manufacturing, spinning and weaving of cotton, flax and wool. Hand-coloured aquatint, by John Clark.

        Vue d'Agrigente, prise des Hauteurs

      [peint par Coignet d'apr?s Michalon; Grav? par S.Himely; Imprim? par Sauni?e], Paris 1822 - From `Voyage pittoresque en Sicile': a very rare series of sublime views of some of the best preserved Greek temples in the world, beautifully hand-coloured and here in the rarest state with the plate on india paper mounted. Published in Paris between 1822 and 1826, Achille-Etienne Gigault de la Salle's `Voyage pittoresque en Sicile', was published in three forms: coloured, coloured before letters or, as here, on india paper, coloured and mounted. The work can now be seen as a showcase for the talents of the best landscape artists and aquatint engravers of the period. Agrigento is the capital of Agrigento provincia, near the southern coast of Sicily. The plateau site of the ancient city is extraordinarily rich in Greek remains. A wall, with remnants of eight gates, can be traced from the two northern peaks (the Rock of Athena and the hill of Girgenti) to the ridge that carried the south line of the city's defenses. An almost continuous sacred area along this ridge has been excavated to reveal Agrigento's most famous remains, its seven Doric temples. Cf. Abbey Travel I, 262, pl. 30; cf. Brunet V, 1379. Aquatint engraving, coloured by hand. India paper mounted.

        Silver Medal: 'Voyage autour du Monde de la Corvette la Coquille'

      Andrieu & Puymaurin, Paris 1822 - Silver medal, 50 mm, toned and a little scuffed above the bust, but very fine. A very good example of the rare silver medal commemorating the voyage of Louis-Isidore Duperrey to the Pacific. Duperrey was perhaps Freycinet's greatest prot?g?, having served as Lieutenant aboard the Uranie during the voyage around the world. Duperrey began petitioning for his own command of a similar expedition immediately on his return to France. Duperrey's voyage was one of the greatest of the French grands voyages to the Pacific. The expedition set out from Toulon on 11 August 1822, with the intention of collecting scientific data and specimens, but also instructed to report on the possibility of establishing a penal colony in Western Australia. Duperrey had as his second-in-command Dumont d'Urville, who was to become the most experienced French commander in the Pacific. While science led the expedition, there was also an unspoken goal of discovering where France might carve out an empire in the South Pacific. His voyage was of some 73,000 miles, with major destinations including Australia, New Zealand, and New Guinea. By far the greatest contributions of the expedition were scientific, cartographic and ethnographic, and the Duperrey voyage account is a famously sumptuous production, with exquisite coloured plates. Of some rarity: a bronze version is recorded in the Rex Nan Kivell collection of the National Library of Australia.

Presents very nicely on the shelf. Full calf. The first Glasgow re-issue of the 1739 Jesuits' edition, edited by John Martin Frederick Wright. The first Jesuits' edition was published in Geneva in 1739-1742 and the second in 1760. These so-called Jesuits' editions (so-called because the editors were really Minims) are valued because of their copious commentary, and also because they contain additional works by Bernoully, Maclarin, and Euler which represent all that was done on the theory of tides between the publication of Newton's Principia and the investigations of Laplace. (see Babson 30, Babson 32, Gray 17, and Wallis 17).

        Autograph manuscript signed. 10pp., with Recamier Autograph letter signed

      Paris, 1822. <p>Chaussier, François (1746-1828). Autograph manuscript draft. 10pp. on 10 numbered leaves. [Paris:] 3 February 1822. Written on the backs of several printed and manuscript documents, including the following: Recamier, Joseph (1774-1852). Autograph letter signed to Chaussier. 1 page plus integral address leaf. [Paris:] 17 January 1822. Together two items. 254 x 201 mm. A few lacunae where seals were broken, a few pin-holes, minor marginal fraying, but very good. </p><p>Chaussier, a pioneer in forensic medicine, introduced the teaching of legal medicine in France in 1790. He began his medical career in Dijon, where he taught anatomy, chemistry and material medica at the Dijon Academy. In 1794, at the request of the French government, Chaussier went to Paris to help reorganize the country&#39;s system of medical education through the creation of the Écoles de Santé. He afterwards served as professor of anatomy in the new school, taught the course of chemistry and medicine at the École Polytechnique, and worked as a physician at the Hospice de la Maternité, where he conducted research on teratology and forensic medicine. During his long and distinguished medical career Chaussier earned a reputation as an expert in legal medicine, giving consultations, writing forensic reports, and publishing several works on the subject, including Manuel médico-légal des poisons (1824), Recueil de mémoires, consultations, et rapports sur divers objets de médecine légale (1824) and Mémoire médico-légal sur la viabilité de l&#39;enfant naissant (1826). </p><p>Chaussier&#39;s manuscript draft is a review of two earlier medical reports concerning the case of a newborn infant found dead in a cesspool. Chaussier&#39;s handwriting is difficult to read, and we have not been able to decipher all of the draft; however, we have been able to determine that much of the draft is devoted to discussing the state of the dead infant&#39;s lungs, attempting to determine whether the infant had begun to breathe before its demise. Chaussier describes the appearance of the lungs of dead infants in similar cases:</p><p>Un enfant naissant meurt quelques minutes après avoir respire et dans ces cas, dont nous avons souvent des exemples a l&#39;hospice de la maternité, les poumons sont toujours développés, rosés, crépitants, leur poids [&#133;] et lors qu&#39;on les met dans l&#39;eau ils submergent complètement.</p><p>[A newborn infant dies several minutes after having breathed and in these cases, of which we often have examples at the Hospice de la Maternité, the lungs are always developed, pink, crepitant, their weight [&#133;], and when one puts them in water they always sink completely.]</p><p>And elsewhere:</p><p>Mais remarquons . . . selon qu&#39;un enfant est mort après avoir respiré, faut-il donc en conclure ainsi qu&#39;on le fait trop souvent que cet enfant a été tué.</p><p>[But note. . . if a child died after breathing, it should be concluded as one does too often that this child was killed.]</p><p>He also notes that the infant&#39;s umbilical cord was not present, and mentions the possibility that gas present in the infant cadaver&#39;s lungs might be the result of putrefaction, given the fact that the body had been in the cesspool eleven days before its discovery.</p><p>Chaussier wrote this draft of his report on the backs of several printed or manuscript documents, including a letter sent to him a few weeks earlier by Joseph Recamier, chief physician at the Hôtel-Dieu, a pioneer in gynecological surgery (see Garrison-Morton 6033), and a cancer specialist who came up with the modern definition of metastasis. The letter reads as follows:</p><p>Monsieur et très honoré collègue,</p><p>On doit traiter une question de médecine légale au sujet d&#39;un chevreuil et d&#39;une dindonneau truffée trouvés morts chez Gri[&#133;] rue neuve des petits champs no. 4.

Burton, Napoleon and the Woman Question (2007), pp. 97-98. This is the only autograph manuscript by Chaussier we have handled in more than forty years of trading. It is also the only manuscript we have ever handled in which the author wrote his draft on the back of other documents. </p>

        The Liberal. Verse and prose from the South

      London: John Hunt, 1822 -, 1823. Two volumes, octavo; some wear and embrowning, gilt title on volume one faded, but a good unsophisticated copy in old half cloth, bound without half-titles. Second and best edition, with Byron&#39;s preface. The short-lived but influential journal, with contributions from Byron, the Shelleys and Hazlitt. The short-lived magazine which was the joint affair of three of the most important Romantics: &#39;Shortly before Shelley&#39;s death, he and Byron had prevailed upon Leigh Hunt to leave England and come out with his family to Italy, in order to take part with the two poets in the foundation of a magazine, The Liberal&#39; (CHEL). It includes the first publication of Byron&#39;s &#39;The Vision of Judgment&#39; and &#39;Heaven and Earth&#39;, as well as the posthumous publication of Percy Bysshe Shelley&#39;s &#39;Song, written for an Indian Air&#39; and his translation of the Brocken scene from Goethe&#39;s Faust.

        Silver Medal: &#39;Voyage autour du Monde de la Corvette la Coquille&#39;

      Paris: Andrieu & Puymaurin, 1822. Silver medal, 50 mm, toned and a little scuffed above the bust, but very fine. A very good example of the rare silver medal commemorating the voyage of Louis-Isidore Duperrey to the Pacific. Duperrey was perhaps Freycinet&#39;s greatest protégé, having served as Lieutenant aboard the Uranie during the voyage around the world. Duperrey began petitioning for his own command of a similar expedition immediately on his return to France. Duperrey&#39;s voyage was one of the greatest of the French grands voyages to the Pacific. The expedition set out from Toulon on 11 August 1822, with the intention of collecting scientific data and specimens, but also instructed to report on the possibility of establishing a penal colony in Western Australia. Duperrey had as his second-in-command Dumont d&#39;Urville, who was to become the most experienced French commander in the Pacific. While science led the expedition, there was also an unspoken goal of discovering where France might carve out an empire in the South Pacific. His voyage was of some 73,000 miles, with major destinations including Australia, New Zealand, and New Guinea. By far the greatest contributions of the expedition were scientific, cartographic and ethnographic, and the Duperrey voyage account is a famously sumptuous production, with exquisite coloured plates. Of some rarity: a bronze version is recorded in the Rex Nan Kivell collection of the National Library of Australia.

        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 pigskin 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".

        Promenade Autour du Monde par J. Arago. Atlas volume

      Paris: Leblanc, 1822. Folio, with an engraved world map and 25 lithograph views; touch of foxing, otherwise a most attractive uncut copy in the original boards, as issued, with the publisher&#39;s printed label. The splendid atlas volume to Jacques Arago&#39;s published account of his voyage to Australia and the Pacific with the Freycinet expedition of 1817-1820. Published in 1822, Arago&#39;s illustrated narrative preceded the official account by two years; and went on to become one of the best-selling voyage books of the nineteenth-century. Davidson comments that &#39;The text volumes are scarce and the atlas rare&#39;. Arago (1790-1855) was the official artist on Freycinet&#39;s voyage, and is known for the witty and caustic account he later wrote as much as for his fine sketches. Arago was the third of four brothers who excelled in diverse professions, the most notable being his eldest brother François, the scientist and politician. Arago&#39;s undoubted artistic ability attracted the attention of the naval authorities who chose him for the demanding role of draughtsman for the Freycinet expedition. By all accounts a charming, gregarious and eccentric man, these attributes stood him in good stead during the voyage, and are reflected in the sketches he made. The atlas volume is remarkable for its suite of 25 expertly lithographed plates. They include two Australian Aboriginal studies, a landscape in the Blue Mountains outside of Sydney Town, Hawaiian scenes and portraits, native rituals of the Pacific and archaic ruins encountered in the Marianas.

        A Short and Easy Method for correcting the apparent distances of the moon from the sun or a fixed star with several new tables

      Genoa: C.M. Reggio, late H. Bonaudo, 1822. Octavo, 27 pp.; very good in the original pale blue wrappers. he Krusenstern astronomer grapples with longitude. Only edition in English: very unusual. This treatise, by the Swiss astronomer and mathematician Johann Kaspar Horner, was his contribution to the question of determining longitude at sea. Horner had himself grappled with the difficulties of practical navigation during his five year stint as the official astronomer for the Krusenstern voyage. In 1798 Horner was appointed the adjunct to Franz Xaver von Zachs, a position which led him to being appointed the secretary of the first European congress of astronomy. It was at the request of Zachs that Horner also took part in the Krusenstern voyage, taking the position of official astronomer from 1803 to 1808. This was evidently the great event of Horner&#39;s life, as he continued to have a tangible interest in the practical difficulties of voyaging even though he was appointed a Professor of Mathematics in Zurich, a position he held for two decades. As Horner himself announces, this work is similar in design to that of Captain Elford in Charleston, but he awards himself the palm for having a system of superior accuracy. This work, as might be expected for a small pamphlet printed for the author at Genoa, is from a very small edition and is now of corresponding rarity. Worldcat lists only a copy at the Swiss National Library.

        Ontdekkingsreis in de Zuid-zee en naar de Berings-Straat , in de jaren 1815, 1816, 1817, en 1818

      Amsterdam: Johannes van der Hey, 1822. Three volumes, each with engraved title-page (the last hand-coloured), four hand-coloured plates and three folding plates, five folding maps, some of the spare spine labels noted by Forbes removed; some toning but an excellent set in early twentieth-century vellum, decorated in gilt and blind, spines darkened. Fine set in vellum of the uncommon Dutch edition of the Kotzebue voyage to the Pacific, the second Russian scientific expedition. &#39;A Dutch edition of the first Kotzebue voyage, translated by P.G. Witsen Geysbeek, with prefaces by the translator in volume I and II and footnotes throughout. The three hand-coloured portraits in volume II are "Tameamea, Konig der Sandwich-Eilanden" (p. 28), a version of the "red vest" portrait by Choris; "Rarick" (p. 130); and "Kadu" (p. 230). A folding plate in volume II&hellip; depicts the heiau and Kamehameha&#39;s residence at Kailua, Kona. The hand-coloured vignette on the volume III title is of the butterfly named for Kamehameha&#39; (Forbes). A fourth hand-coloured plate in the first volume depicts "Inwoners van Kotzebue-Sond." Kotzebue&#39;s voyage is one of the great Pacific exploration accounts. This famous voyage narrative is particularly important for its descriptions of Alaska, California (including the first scientific account of the state flower, the Golden Poppy), Hawaii and Micronesia; Lada-Mocarski describes the account of Alaska as &#39;rich in early original source material.&#39; The expedition rounded Cape Horn and visited Chile, Easter Island, the Marshall Islands, Hawaii and the North American coast, making an unsuccessful search for a Northwest passage. The Rurik sailed along the California coast, stopping at San Francisco; Kotzebue describes the missions, and the work is considered one of the most important early accounts of the state. Kotzebue made a stop in Hawaii in November-December 1816, revisiting again in September-October 1817, anchoring off Hawaii and Oahu. The Hawaiian portion is extensive with important observations on life and customs during the reign of Kamehameha I, whose famous "red vest" portrait by Choris is one of the illustrations.

        An Encyclopaedia of Gardening

      London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme and Brown, 1822. Six volumes, octavo, including the index; aside from a little inoffensive foxing an excellent set in contemporary black half calf with marbled boards, each volume bearing a respective label - &#39;Planting&#39;, &#39;Floriculture&#39; etc.; four page prospectus for the single volume octavo edition of the encyclopaedia loosely inserted. First edition, complete in six volumes including the comprehensive index bound as a separate final volume. The encyclopaedia is global in scope, with sub-chapters treating Asia, the Americas, and other British colonies including New South Wales and Van Diemen&#39;s Land. On Australia Loudon writes: &#39;the botanical riches of this country, and the singular aspect of the native plants, are well known. There are gardeners and botanists established in and near Sidney (sic), who collect seeds for England, and other parts of Europe; and it is in contemplation to establish a government botanic garden there, which will doubtless by of essential service in collecting and preserving native plants.&#39; Indeed, the index to this volume reveals Australian plants, including Acacia and Eucalyptus, were already well distributed in British gardening circles. The Encyclopaedia of Gardening includes further information on Australian soils, climate and the progress of horticulture generally. Differences between cultivation in Van Diemen&#39;s Land and the more genial climate of Sydney is discussed (curiously the inland climate &#39;to the westward of the Blue Mountains&#39; is likened to that of Tasmania). The author, John Claudius Loudon (1783-1843), was a Scottish botanist, horticultural designer and editor of The Gardener&#39;s Magazine, famous for his design of the Birmingham Botanical Gardens, Stradsett Hall in Norfolk and the Abbey Cemetery in Bath.

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.

        The American Practical Lunarian, and Seaman's Guide?

      Robert Desilver, August, Philadelphia 1822 - Thick octavo, 15 plates (some folding), many tables and text illustrations, some scattered light foxing and browning as commonly found in American books of this date; a good copy in the original dark calf, spine label chipped, a few repairs to extremities. Freycinet's chart of the Uranie wreck at French Bay. First and only edition of this remarkable book, including the earliest published map based on the Freycinet voyage, an engraved sketch-map of French Bay marking where the Uranie ran aground. The map was based on a manuscript chart completed by Freycinet and copied for Captain Galvin of the Mercury, the ship leased by Freycinet for the return to France, and later purchased and renamed the Physicienne. The "Plan of Port Soledad or Berkley's Sound east end of Falkland Island" is rather well done, with a key noting the position of details including the 'Wreck of the French Corvette Urannei [sic]', the 'Sunken Rock which the Urannei struck on', and the 'Anchorage of the Mercury'. The presence of the Freycinet chart is due to Arnold's friendship with Captain John Galvin, who is listed here as one of the subscribers. Arnold notes: 'This chart was presented to the author in manuscript, by Captain John Galvin, of the ship Mercury, of Buenos Ayres, when he was in Philadelphia in 1821, a copy of which the author had engraved for this work. Captain Galvin procured it from the captain of the French corvette Uraneé [sic], which was at that time on a voyage of discovery, and was wrecked in this port, when Captain Galvin put in there in the Mercury in a leaky state, in 1820' (p. 263). Galvin had been running guns to rebels in Chile, but the Mercury had taken a beating in heavy seas, and pulled into the Falklands to refit. The French were already engaged in fruitless negotiations with a whaler called the General Knox, but Freycinet was relieved to be able to switch his attention to Galvin and the Mercury, negotiating their passage to Montevideo and, en route, arranging for the purchase of the vessel - a complicated bargain, but greatly preferred by Galvin's other passengers, a small group of fiery revolutionaries heading for the war in Chile. This work was published by the experienced mariner Thomas Arnold who had set up a Nautical Academy at 295 South Front Street on the river at Philadelphia (which he advertises here). A compendium of useful information similar in style to works such as Bowditch's Practical Navigator or Blunt's Shipmaster's Assistant, it is rich in practical notes on subjects as diverse as navigational instruction, natural history, astronomy, practical seamanship, gunnery, naval tactics and 'several sketches of trade not generally known' (including trade with the Ile de France, Bourbon and Batavia, to name just a few). The important section of sailing directions concentrates largely on Atlantic waters, as might be expected, and openly acknowledges its debt to Horsburgh's sailing directions of 1818 ('which is the latest and best extant'), with a few corrections from working sea-captains.
