        Outlines of a System of Political Economy;

      London: Baldwin, Cradock, and Joy,, 1823. Written with a View to prove to Government and the Country, that the Cause of the present agricultural Distress is entirely artificaial; and to suggest a Plan for the Management of the Currency, by which it may be remidied now, and any recurrence of similar evils be prevented in future: together with the fourth edition of an Essay on the Principles of Banking. Octavo (214 × 127 mm). Contemporary half calf and pebble grained cloth, spine ruled and lettered gilt in compartments, marbled endpapers and edges, silk ribbon place marker. Joints and corners lightly rubbed; an excellent copy. First edition of a work "designed to be a fairly general work on economics but one which led to what Joplin saw as the central issue of macroeconomic stability" (O'Brien, p. 14), what is now famously known as the "currency principle", that a mixed (metallic and paper) currency should fluctuate exactly as a purely metallic currency would. Although the basic idea is to be found in Ricardo and, before him, Adam Smith and Hume, "Joplin was the first to propose a 100 per cent reserve system of banking, the idea being to make money interest behave as it would behave with a purely metallic currency, and to render the creation of bank currency ?- the creation of means of payment of bank currency ?- impossible" (Schumpeter, p. 723n). Born in Newcastle, Thomas Joplin (1790??-1847) is best known for his first book, An Essay on the General Principles and Present Practice of Banking (1822), reprinted in the present work as an appendix, which was 'a plea for the establishment of joint-stock banks like those operating in Scotland' (O'Brien, p. 12); this was a cause which he promoted throughout the rest of his life. The currency principle was to become one of the central policy proposals for the Currency School (including Lord Overstone, James Ramsay McCulloch, Mountifort Longfield, and a converted Robert Torrens) in its wranglings with the Banking School (Thomas Tooke, John Fullarton, and the young John Stuart Mill) in the 1840s, a period which saw a re-emergence of the Bullionist debate of the century's first two decades after the 1844 Banking Act which, though not requiring parity between note issue and gold reserves, gave the Bank of England a monopoly on the issue of banknotes.

        Three important ALSs from the 1820s

      [Paris] 1823 - Three autograph letters, 260 x 195 mm., some browning; very good. The Comte de Lauraguais, old friend of Sir Joseph Banks, still dazzlingly witty at 90. Three interesting and witty letters written by an elderly Comte de Lauraguais, providing a revealing glimpse of the exalted scientific circles in which he still moved. This small cache of letters represents a rare opportunity to gain a better understanding of the enigmatic Count, and includes a particularly good letter to Prince Pierre d'Arenberg, his grandson.Louis Léon Félicité, comte de Lauraguais, duc de Brancas (1733-1824) was a French aristocrat and accomplished chemist, now remembered for his friendship with Sir Joseph Banks. In early 1772 Lauraguais had angered his friend by attempting to publish an account of the Endeavour voyage based on a letter written by Banks, only for Banks to personally seize it from the printer and have all but one copy burnt (that single copy is now one of the treasures of the State Library of New South Wales). Lauraguais had a lifelong interest in the sciences and in voyages of discovery particularly, making the present letters, written when he was almost 90 years of age, a moving testament to his reputation. Hordern House have only once previously handled any manuscript material relating to Lauraguais.The three letters are as follows:Single page to the Chevalier de Rébourguil, 6 May 1822. Lauraguais reflects disarmingly on his long life and his old age, mentioning his old friend Voltaire, and the "spirits coming out of their tombs" as he reflects on former times. The letter was sent to his "good and old" friend the Chevalier de Rébourgil, undoubtedly connected to the town of that name in the Midi-Pyrénées. One-and-a-half pages to M. Bouillon-Lagrange, 3 July 1822. Edme-Jean Baptiste Bouillon-Lagrange (1764-1844) was a professor and later the director of the Ecole de pharmacie in Paris. He had evidently written to the Comte to discuss news relating to chemistry, as he has replied in a witty and self-deprecating way, thanking Bouillon-Lagrange for his kind words and the indulgence with which he has discussed his work, but that he now not only doesn't have a laboratory but in fact barely a kitchen. Lauraguais nonetheless looks forward to meeting him as an old colleague in chemistry.Four pages to his grandson Prince Pierre d'Arenberg, 26 May 1823. Easily the most substantial and personal of the three letters, it is written to the Prince in Marseille, and makes mention of the "Princesse de Poix" (presumably Anne Louise Marie de Beauvau-Craon, the dowager of Philippe-Louis de Noailles, duc de Poix). The letter shows Lauraguais still moving effortlessly through the beau monde - including a reference to his old friend Rébourgil, the recipient of the earlier letter in this group, as an old "ultra" who is still enjoying his health after some 60 years - and concluding with the hope that the Prince will come and see him soon. Pierre d'Arenberg (1790-1877) was the son of Lauraguais' daughter, Pauline Louise Antoinette Candide Felicite de Brancas-Villars de Lauraguais (1755-1820).

        A vintage albumen paper photograph (a cabinet card, image size 142 x 102 mm) mounted on the original card, with 'F. Duryea Photo Artist' printed on the bottom margin. 'A Dentist' is handwritten (unnecessarily!) on the verso in ballpoint pen; this impressive image leaves nothing to the imagination

      - Quite the opposite, in fact: the gentleman standing behind his extensive array of implements and dentures, looks more like a ringmaster, with his hair below the shoulders of his velvet smoking jacket with quilted silk lapels . Townsend Duryea (1823-1888) was one of the most significant early photographers of South Australia; he was married three times, and had twelve children. 'Several of his sons and grandsons became photographers' (Australian Dictionary of Biography). Four sons - Townsend Jr., Edwin, Richard and Frank - are noted as photographers on the Photohistory SA website, and we presume 'F. Duryea' is Frank Duryea (1861-1936). Interestingly, there is no record of F. or Frank Duryea in the standard register of nineteenth century Australian photographers, 'The Mechanical Eye in Australia' by Davies and Stanbury (1985), although the other three are listed. Only two images attributed to Frank Duryea are recorded on Trove. One is a routine group portrait of 'SA Railways employees' (1920). The other is clearly wrongly credited to him, as it is a carte de visite of Fanny (Frances Ann) Todd, dated 1865, when Frank Duryea was just four years old . The present photograph (undated but circa 1890s) is in fine condition; the verso of the card has slight surface abrasions to the corners where it has been removed from an album.

        Sicilian Scenery from Drawings by P. De Wint. The Original Sketches of Major Light

      London, Rodwell & Martin, 1823 - Quarto (trimmed to 265 x 180 mm), unpaginated but comprising a frontispiece vignette ('Sicilian Cottage'), an engraved title page with a vignette ('Crater of Mount Etna'; verso blank), 60 full-page plates (versos blank), each with a leaf of descriptive text (English on one side, the French translation on the verso) and a tissue-guard, and 3 index pages. Contemporary full black morocco extensively gilt- and blind-decorated, all edges gilt; leather a little rubbed at the extremities, with minor wear to the corners; minimal foxing and some offsetting (confined mainly to the tissue-guards); an excellent copy with the ownership signatures of J. Woodhouse (Brasenose College, 1839) and E. Angas Johnson on the front endpaper. William Light (1786-1839), soldier and surveyor, was born in Malaya and spent his childhood in Penang. He served with distinction (and was unharmed) in the Peninsular war. He missed Waterloo, but was severely wounded in a minor Spanish revolution in 1823. In the years before (and after) this, he travelled widely in Europe, and mixed with artistic and literary circles; the material in this book stems from this period. He was appointed the first Surveyor-General of South Australia in February 1836; in December of that year he determined the site of Adelaide, and his plan gave the city its belt of parklands. He died from tuberculosis in October 1839. Edward Angas Johnson (1873-1951) was an Adelaide medical practitioner, prominent in public health circles; his grandmother was a daughter of George Fife Angas. 'His hobby was collecting curios and historical relics, especially those relating to South Australian history. This remarkable collection and his library were distributed to public institutions before his death' (all biographical details from the Australian Dictionary of Biography).

        ALS.

      Two letters from the architect C. R. Cockerell to François Mazois regarding the publication of "Les Ruines de Pompéi" dated August 28 1823 resp. April 8 1824. 8vo. Each with (4) pp, one with seal and address.The English architect and archaeologist Charles Robert Cockerell (1788-1863) took part in the excavations of the Temple of Aphaea in Aegina in 1811 and he was to become an important promoter in the archaeological field. He is nowdays -as an archaeologist- perhaps most remembered for removing the reliefs from the temple of Apollo at Bassae, which are now in the British Museum. When Cockerell returned from Greece he stayed with Gell in Naples, where they planned to write a book on Pompeii together, and he visited Pompeii with both Gell and in June 1815 with Mazois, whom he had met earlier in 1815 in Rome. In these two fine letters he tries to encourage Mazois that he must continue with the publishing of his monumental work on Pompeii. Cockerell has just received the first "livraison". Mazois (1783-1826) was finally able to publish the first two parts of the work, while the remaining parts were published by Franz Christian Gau

        Autograph Manuscript of his speech in Parliament on the English response to the French invasion of Spain

      n.p. [London], Stanhope St, 1823. 11-1/2 pp (manuscript) on 3 large bifolia of watermarked paper + one page cover letter to "Mr. Wright" (probably the printer) conveying the speech as the "correct Report ... to be inserted in the Parliamentary Debates of the late session". 1 vols. Folio & 8o (letter). Some wear, mounted on inner margins. Palmerston Speech on Negotiations over France and Spain, 1823 The Spanish Civil War of 1820-1823, a conflict between royalists and liberals, resulted in the intervention of Bourbon France in the conflict, and in April, 1823, 100,000 French troops invaded Spain to restore King Ferdinand VII to the Spanish throne. Debates on the English response were held in the House of Commons, and this is the speech delivered by Lord Palmerston (1784-1865), then Secretary at War, in his own hand, as delivered to the printer of the Parliamentary Debates: "Whatever difference of opinion might exist upon some points, there were two on which all seemed to agree; first, the injustice of the conduct of France, and next that the contest, end as it may, must be injurious to the interests of England. ...He must be a bold prophet who could venture to foretell the issue of the contest; but he must indeed be an unwise politician who could have plunged us at once and blindfold into the war.".

        J.M. ELFORD'S MARINE TELEGRAPH; OR, UNIVERSAL SIGNAL BOOK.BEING ALSO THE KEY TO THE PATENT TELEGRAPH, INVENTED BY THE AUTHOR, CAPABLE OF MAKING 9330 PROGRESSIVE CHANGES, BY USING THE FIGURES FROM 1 TO 6 ONLY.

      Charleston: Printed by Archibald E. Miller, 1823. - 75,[4]pp. plus handcolored frontispiece, and 8pp. addenda. Original marbled paper boards with leather spine, reinforced with old linen. Corners lightly worn, inner hinges cracked but sewing tight. Contemporary ownership inscription on flyleaf and rear pastedown. Minor scattered soiling, but generally quite clean internally. Very good. A rare instructional work on a patented system of ship communication, using just six telegraphic flags. Elford taught navigation and nautical astronomy in Charleston. The frontispiece depicts "Marine, Telegraphic flags." Quite an early American signal book. Though there were other early systems in America, not all the inventors published books. Elford's marine visual system depended on six uniquely patterned flags, and on a "conversation flag." These are illustrated in this book, along with a glossary of words and sentences, and their numerical equivalents, which would be signaled by means of the flags. A sheet of testimonials has been pasted on the inside of the front board, at the bottom of which is a list of agents. Lemuel Moody of Portland is the first name listed - it would be interesting to know if he used Elford's system to signal from his observatory. The front flyleaf is inscribed, "Ship Marengo of New Orleans, B. Wood, Master." On the following blank is a handcolored illustration with manuscript showing the four flags that would signal Marengo's identifying number. The supplement which follows the text is 4pp. long in this volume - an unusual variation. It is followed by an 8pp. MARINE TELEGRAPH REGISTER listing ships and their identifying numbers.

        Der Fels Wittgenschloß genannt im Ernstthal bey Glashütte".

      - Aquarell und Deckfarben, auf Velin, verso signiert und datiert „T. Faber del 1823". 27,7:22,4 cm. Verso von älterer Hand mit Bleistift beschriftet: „Der Fels ist jetzt von der Straße .abgesprengt u i die Straße unmittelbar an dieselbe verlegt, .". Von 1801-1804 war Faber Schüler der Dresdener Akademie bei C.G. Fechhelm (1732-1816), anschließend bis 1814 Schüler J.C. Klengels (1751-1824). Aus finanziellen Gründen arbeitete er anfangs verstärkt als Radierer und Lithograph für Buchhändler. 1819/1820 wurde er zum Pensionär und Mitglied der Dresdener Akademie berufen, von 1815-1834 unterrichtete er u.a. am Freimaurer-Institut in Dresden. Zu seinen bedeutendsten Schülern dort zählte F. von Rayski (1806-1890). Faber führte die Tradition Klengels in der Dresdener Landschaftsmalerei fort und wurde zwischen 1820 und 1830 von C.D. Friedrich (1774-1840) beeinflußt. Auch gehörte er zu den Dresdener Künstlern, die neben A. Graff (1736-1813), J.W. Mechau (1745-1808), E.F. Oehme (1797-1855), C. Götzloff (1799-1866) und L. Richter (1803-1884) von dem Kunstsammler und Kunstschriftsteller Johann Gottlob von Quandt (1787-1859) gefördert wurden. Seit 1801 war Faber regelmäßig auf den Dresdener Akademieausstellungen vertreten. Im Mittelpunkt seines Schaffens stand die realistische Darstellung seiner Heimat Sachsen und der umgebenden Länder, vor allem aus Schlesien. Ernstthal ist ein Ortsteil der Glasbläserstadt Lauscha und unmittelbar am Rennsteig gelegen. Es gehört zum Thüringer Schiefergebirge, umgeben von den Städten Sonneberg, Ilmenau und Saalfeld.

        Peter von Cornelius (1783 Düsseldorf-Berlin 1867), im Hausrock mit Künstlermütze; Büste im Dreiviertelprofil nach rechts, 1852. Peter von Cornelius, Büste im Profil nach links.

      - 2 Holzstiche mit ockerfarbenen Tonplatten gedruckt und mit weißen Lichtern, auf China. Darstellungsgröße 17,5:15,2 cm, bzw. 17,5:15 cm, Blattgröße 38:51,2 cm. Gedruckt von C.C. Meinhold & Söhne, Dresden; erschienen im Commissionsverlag Gaber & Richter, Dresden. Mit den faksimilierten Zeilen von Cornelius‘ Hand unter dem linken Bildnis: „Zweifeln mag und grübeln im Reiche des Wissens der Forscher / Doch in den Sphären der Kunst erleuchte der Glaube die Bahn. / P. v. Cornelius" und unter dem rechten Bildnis, vermutlich – von Elise Crola - die faksimilierten Zeilen: „Wenn ich Ihn nur habe / laß ich grau mich selbst". Probedrucke. Bei dem Holzschneider, von dem beide Porträts stammen, handelt es sich vermutlich um August Gaber (1823 Köppernig/Neiße_Berlin 1894), Schwiegersohn Ludwig Richters, der auch für diesen, Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld u.a. in Holz geschnitten hat. Der Verlag Gaber & Richter löste sich 1860 auf. Dieser Umstand läßt eine recht genaue Datierung der Holzschnitte zu, nämlich zwischen 1852 und 1860. Die Vorzeichnung zu dem linken Bildnis entstand 1852 anläßlich eines elftägigen Besuches von Cornelius und seiner Familie im Haus des Künstlerehepaares Crola in Ilsenburg. (Vgl. Ausst. Katalog: G. Ilte, Elise Crola. Romantische Zeichnungen. Wernigerode, 2008, S. 22/23). Die Zeichnung befindet sich noch heute im Besitz der Familie Cornelius. Dass Bildnis rechts ist vermutlich zu einem anderen Zeitpunkt entstanden, da die Haare von Cornelius länger sind als auf dem linken Porträt, und grau. Elise Crola, Tochter eines Bankiers, wuchs in einem künstlerisch-musisch orientierten Elternhaus auf. Hier verkehrten neben Wissenschaftlern auch Maler und Bildhauer wie W. von Schadow (1788-1862), Chr.D. Rauch (1777-1857), C.J. Begas (1794-1854), C.W. Wach (1787-1845) und ihr Vetter E.J.F. Bendemann (1811-1889), der spätere Direktor der Dresdner Gemäldegalerie. Ihre Eltern förderten die künstlerische Begabung ihrer Tochter – auch Schadow, der sie in jungen Jahre porträtiert hatte („Die Poesie"), empfahl ihren Eltern, das Talent ihrer Tochter zu fördern. So erhielt sie früh Zeichenunterricht durch den Porträt- und Miniaturmaler J.F. Zimmermann (tätig 1796-1838). Im Alter von 18 Jahren heiratete sie den vierzehn Jahre älteren Baron K.H.L. von Weiher; die kinderlose Ehe wurde 1836 auf Drängen ihrer Familie und gegen ihren Willen geschieden. Kurz darauf lernte sie in Berlin den Maler Georg Heinrich Crola (1804-1879) kennen, sie trafen sich wieder in Ilsenburg, wo sie sich bevorzugt aufhielt, und heirateten 1840. Gemeinsam entschied man, in Ilsenburg sesshaft zu werden und erwarb schließlich 1847 ein großes Haus. Obwohl sie fünf Kinder gebar, unternahm sie gemeinsam mit ihrem Mann nicht nur zahlreiche Fahrten nach Berlin, Dresden und auf die Insel Rügen, sondern auch nach Dänemark, Schweden und in die Alpen. Zudem führten sie in Ilsenburg ein reges gesellschaftliches Leben. Zu ihren Künstlerfreunden zählten u.a. P. von Cornelius (1783-1867), L. Richter (1803-1884) und W. von Kügelgen (1802-1867). Elise zeigte zudem ein ausgeprägtes soziales Engagement und wurde zur Wohltäterin der Alten und Armen. Nicht näher zu spezifizierende Beschwerden zwangen sie jedoch zu Reisen, z.B. eine vermutlich anderthalbjährigere Reise gemeinsam mit ihrem Mann 1854 in die Schweiz. Auch zwei längere Aufenthalte in Italien zwecks Erholung sind zu belegen. Ihr künstlerisches Schaffen, sie arbeitete meist mit dem Bleistift, selten in Aquarell, wird von figürlichen Themen, Porträts, Tierdarstellungen, Veduten und Landschaften bestimmt. Daneben betätigte sie sich bildhauerisch (Porträts). Später bemalte sie auch Porzellane und Gebrauchsgegenstände. Im Hüttenmuseum Ilsenburg wurde Ende der 1990er Jahre eine Crola-Stube eingerichtet.

A declaration outlining the guidelines of leadership within the Federal Republic of Central America. In July of 1823 Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua, El Salvador, and Costa Rica met in Guatemala City, newly independent from Mexico, to form the Federal Republic of Central America. Leadership was in triumvirate and the document provides intricate detail regarding the expectations of those in executive power. The Federal Republic remained intact until 1840, after a series of disputes between liberals and conservatives caused the Republic to fall into civil war and dissolve. Only one copy is located, in the National Library of Chile.

        Pompeji, der Jupitertempel an der Via Stabiana.

      - Bleistift auf Velin, links unten bezeichnet und datiert „Il tempio di Giove a Pompei li 15 Settembre 31.", in der Mitte signiert (?) „Wiegmann". 29:35,5 cm. Provenienz: Drei nicht identifizierbare Sammlerstempel. Wiegmann war vielseitig tätig als Architekt, Maler, Graphiker und Kunstschriftsteller. Ersten Unterricht in der Baukunst erhielt er bei dem Oberlandbaumeister Wedekind in Hannover und studierte danach ab 1823 an der Göttinger Universität Kunstwissenschaften. Seine eigentliche künstlerische Ausbildung folgte dann bei dem Architekten Gg. Moller (1784-1852) in Darmstadt. Von dort aus trat er 1828 eine für ihn sehr wichtige Studienreise nach Italien an. In Rom, wo er sich vorwiegend aufhielt, beschäftigte er sich mit der Architektur des Altertums und antiken Wandmalereien. Zurück in Hannover war er hauptsächlich als Maler tätig, es entstanden Architekturansichten meist mit italienischen Motiven. In Düsseldorf, wohin er 1835 übergesiedelt war, nahm er eine bedeutende Rolle im Kulturleben ein. Seit 1836 bis zu seinem Tode war er Professor für Baukunst und Perspektive an der Akademie. 1838 baute er das Wohnhaus für W. von Schadow (1788-1862) und 1840 ein Doppelhaus für seine Professorenkollegen J.W. Schirmer (1807-1863) und C.F. Sohn (1805-1867). Von großer Bedeutung waren auch Wiegmanns zahlreiche Veröffentlichen auf dem Gebiet der Kunstgeschichte.
