HOFF, Karl Ernst Adolf von
One folding engraved map. Five vols. 8vo, cont. black specked boards (a bit of wear), spines gilt, red & blue leather lettering pieces on spines. Gotha: J. Perthes, 1822-24-34-40-41. First edition and very scarce when complete. Hoff (1771-1837), was an important diplomat, representing the duchy of Gotha. He "simultaneously accomplished first-rate work in a totally different field - scientific research, notably in geology and geography. Indeed, he introduced a new epoch of geological study which continues still…[In the present work] Hoff insisted that one must in the first instance study the effect of those forces whose work we are able to observe today and apply this knowledge to the earliest history of the earth. Through these premises, later designated Aktualismus, he consciously rejected the catastrophist theory. He did not make headway at first. Not until Lyell's Principles of Geology attained wide dissemination as a comprehensive textbook, supported by observations throughout the world did actualism gain ascendancy and find lasting application in countless investigations."-D.S.B., VI, p. 457-(& see pp. 456-57 for a full account of Hoff's achievements). Fine set. The final two volumes, published after Hoff's death, were edited by Heinrich Karl Wilhelm Berghaus. ❧ Zittel, pp. 187-88-"His great work treats of the relation between land and sea in historic time, the extension of the ocean surface owing to the erosion of the coastal territories and invasions of the continents. The volume betokens complete mastery of all the literature on the subj … [Click Below for Full Description]

Adams, John Quincy
Washington, 1822. 256,3pp. Original boards, paper label. Front board detached, rear hinge cracked, spine and label chipped, corners bumped, early manuscript title on front board. Contemporary gift inscription on first front free endpaper, contemporary ownership inscriptions on titlepage. Second front free endpaper partially torn away, some loss to a later interior leaf, slightly affecting text. Tanned, occasional light foxing. Good. Untrimmed. In a modern cloth clamshell case. A copy with a fascinating provenance, given from a future President of the United States to his youngest brother, Thomas Boylston Adams. A pen inscription on the front fly leaf of this volume in the hand of John Quincy Adams, reads: "Thomas B. Adams from his brother John Quincy Adams." On the titlepage is the ownership signature of Thomas Adams and the slightly later signature of an A. Dunlop. Thomas Adams served as a representative in the state legislature for the Adams family's hometown of Quincy, Massachusetts, and later was a senior magistrate in the Massachusetts State Circuit Court. The text brings together the correspondence and reports of the negotiations conducted by John Quincy Adams with the British to resolve the War of 1812. As ever, Adams was very sensitive to criticism, and thus exhaustively defends his work. It appeared in 1822 when Adams was Secretary of State, in an attempt to counter rumors that he had offered navigation rights on the Mississippi River to the British during the negotiations. SABIN 276. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 7740.

PIGAL (Edme Jean).
P., Martinet et Gihaut, [v. 1822-1830], in-folio, demi-maroquin tête de nègre à coin et à grain long, dos lisse entièrement orné, tête dorée. (CN44) Superbe recueil de 50 planches lithographiées (par LANGLUMÉ), coloriées à la main, d'après les dessins d'Edme-Jean PIGAL (1798-1873). « Pigal est l'un des premiers à s'intéresser aux mœurs populaires, rendues avec un comique un peu trivial et facile. Ses thèmes préférés sont les mœurs parisiennes, les scènes familières, surtout celles du milieu ouvrier ou de la petite bourgeoisie (...) Il a exécuté plusieurs suites lithographiées à partir de 1821» (J. Bailly-Herzberg, Dictionnaire de l'estampe en France). « Les scènes populaires de Pigal sont bonnes» , dit Baudelaire (Curiosités esthétiques, 1857). « Pigal est un comique modéré, mais le sentiment de ses compositions est bon et juste. Ce sont des vérités vulgaires, mais des vérités. La plupart de ses tableaux ont été pris sur nature (...), presque toujours des hommes du peuple, des dictons populaires, des ivrognes, des scènes de ménage...» (id.). « On peut comparer Pigal à Paul de Kock (...). Si l'un imprime le gros mot, l'autre le dessine, non par immoralité, mais le conteur et le peintre ont osé rire des choses dont riaient nos pères» dit Champfleury (Histoire de la caricature moderne). « C'est dans les lithographies de Pigal qu'il faut étudier l'histoire du costume vers la fin de la Restauration: étant plutôt des études de mœurs que des caricatures, les personnages jeunes, avec la prétention de porter la dernière mode, on retrouve les fameuses manches à gigot dans les habits … [Click Below for Full Description]

HOFFMAN, E.T.A.
HOFFMANN, E.T.A. Meister Floh. Ein Märchen in Sieben Abentheuern zweier Freunde. [2], 267, [3] pp. 8vo., 185 x 120 mm, bound in original boards, illustrated on both covers with sepia aquatints designed by Hoffmann and executed by F.C. Thiele, in modern matching slipcase. Frankfurt am Main: Friedrich Wilmans, 1822. First Edition, and most importantly with this curious book, the first issue of the famous binding which was personally designed by E.T.A. Hoffmann. In subsequent issues the binding was decorated by way of lithography, not aquatint. Hoffmann's scathing satire on the police state, entitled "Master Flea," has the central character portrayed on the cover "travelling in disguise." The Master Flea is the master of ceremonies in a flea circus whose bite grants youth to the victim. The book was censored by the Prussian government, and Hoffmann himself became a suspect of dissent and subversion. The work was a thinly disguised fairy tale, in which Hoffmann quoted directly from actual trial documents and even ridiculed the chief of police. Court proceedings were initiated against the author; on January 23, 1822, the original manuscript of Meister Floh was confiscated on the orders of King Friedrich Wilhelm III. Hoffmann was interviewed at his sick bed on February 22nd; meanwhile Meister Floh was published in the Spring (albeit in somewhat revised form); Hoffmann's case never went to trial: he died on June 24, 1822 after a long illness. Binding expertly recased, modern endpapers. Goedeke VIII, 498, 65. Salomon 173. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Trumbull, John
[New York], 1822. [1]p., docketed on verso. Quarto sheet. Old fold lines. Bottom third separated at fold. Minor wear. Good plus. A remarkable document written by American artist John Trumbull, utilizing his original painting, "The Declaration of Independence," as collateral to secure a loan from the Bank of New York. This document, addressed to Charles Wilkes as the cashier of the Bank of New York, reads in part: "Now therefore, being desirous to Secure him as far as is in my power against loss by the uncertainty of Life & prosperity, I do hereby hypothecate & pledge to him the sd. Charles Wilkes the Senate painting of the declaration of Independence now in the hands of Mr. [Asher Brown] Durand the Engraver and also the Copper plate which He is engraving from the Same as collateral Security for any Sum which he may hazard by any accident befalling me. And this pledge shall remain in full force until all and every Note or Notes which He may have endorsed for me shall be paid & Cancelled." Trumbull is referring to his original painting of this famous event, which was begun in Paris at the suggestion of Thomas Jefferson. Trumbull was later commissioned by the Congress to paint a twelve-by-eighteen-foot version based on this original. The larger painting was sold to Congress in 1819, so it is almost certainly the original smaller version that remained in Trumbull's possession (now at Yale University Art Gallery) that was being used as collateral for a loan. Hailed as the official painter of the Revolution, Trumbull studied painting and art in England and France. The younges … [Click Below for Full Description]

Rossini, Luigi (illus).
Rome. 1822. Rossini, Luigi (illus). 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.
