        The Social Day: A Poem, in Four Cantos

      London: Printed by J.(ames) Moyes, Greville Street for James Carpenter & Son, Old Bond Street; and R. Ackermann, Strand, 1823. First Edition, Large Paper copy. Engraved title, portrait, and 30 engraved plates with India proofs before letters tipped in. xvi, [16], 354, [4] pp. 1 vols. 4to (11 x 7-1/2 inches). Bound in full purple morocco by Zaehnsdorf in an EXHIBITION BINDING with gilt stamp on back pastedown, original paper label tipped in at back, with price for Large Paper Copies stated as "£4. 4." and also marked "Subscriber's Copy." Open-faced purple morocco slipcase. The First Steel-Engraved Plate?, LARGE PAPER, WITH INDIA PROOFS The plate on page 288, "Silent the guest surveyed the crowd", engraved by Charles Warren, the leading protagonist of steel-engraving at this time, is dated 1822, and has traditionally been considered to be the first steel-engraved book illustration. Basil Hunnisett, in Steel Engraved Book Illustrations in England, expresses doubts as to whether it actually was engraved on steel, suggesting that the first may be Warren's engraving of Adam and Eve for an 1822 edition of Paradise Lost. Whatever the case may be, Coxe's poem - a paean to the pleasures of rural pastimes, especially sporting amusements - is beautifully illustrated in this sumptous Ackermann production. Berry and Poole, in Annals of Printing, dates the first steel engravings at 1823, but does not cite a specific book. The book has an illustration by Constable, one of the first artists lending their work to this new media. A note at the front of the book and on the list of subscribers identifies this as Scottish artist David Wilkie's copy. He painted the scene after which the plate at page 288 was engraved.

        Pyramides de Memphis - Vue de la seconde pyramide, prise du coté du levant

      Menfi - Egitto 1823 - Veduta di alcune piramidi nei pressi di Menfi, incisa all'aquaforte su lastra di rame, inserite nella monumentale opera Description de l'Egypte, II° edizione dal 1820-29 voluta da Luigi XVIII, importante risultato culturale dell'occupazione francese in Egitto per il periodo che va dal 1798 al 1801. Bonaparte decise di invadere queste terre per controllare le vie commerciali verso l'india ed assestare in questo modo un duro colpo all'economia britannica. Durante questa operazione, il Nostro favorì l'attività di numerosi artisti, ingegneri, matematici e naturalisti per registrare e catalogare con estrema precisione le costruzioni e i monumenti egiziani nonché la flora e la fauna. Il risultato di questo immane sforzo, che per la pubblicazione coinvolse quasi duemila tra artisti e tecnici oltre a quattrocento incisori, fu l'opera "Description de l'Egypte, ou recueil des observations et des recherches qui ont été faites en Egypte pendant l'expédition de l'armée française", che offre una globale visione scientifica dell'antico e moderno Egitto, nonché la sua storia naturale. La Description ebbe grande influenza sul movimento orientalista pittorico dell'ottocento e diede un contributo fondamentale alla diffusione dell'Egittologia. Numerosi edifici rappresentati in queste tavole sono stati completamente distrutti nel tempo mm 412x545

        Collection of Nine (9) Lithographs on Gastronomy

      1823. |~||~||~|FRENCH GASTRONOMY BOILLY, Louis Léopold. Collection of Nine (9) Hand-Coloured Lithographs on Gastronomy. Small folio (see individual sizes below). Each lithograph professionally matted. Preserved in a black custom cloth and wood folding box. Paris: Delpech, 1823-27. |~||~||~||~| First issue of these lithographs, the state with the "très délicat" original hand-colouring. Expressive and humorous, these French scenes on the theme of gastronomy offer a cross-section of early nineteenth-century French men, women, and children engaged in drinking wine and l'eau de vie, eating oysters, ice cream, grapes, doughnuts, and cracking and consuming nuts. Not only exceptional for the gastronomical interest, the Boilly images of tight clusters of expressive faces showcase French caricature at its very best. Printed on thick paper without watermark. These nine lithographs belong to the voluminous suite entitled Recueil de grimaces created by Boilly and printed by the lithographer François-Séraphin Delpech (1778-1825). The complete suite comprises ninety-six lithographs and survives complete in one copy only (see below). The Boilly lithographs were mostly sold as single sheets, either in black and white or, for a premium price, with the "très délicat" artistic hand-colouring. Louis Léopold Boilly's (1761-1845) career spanned the Ancien Regime, the French Revolution, the age of Napoleon, the Bourbon Restoration, and the July Monarchy. He was the son of a wood sculptor, and became a portrait and genre scene painter, specializing in Parisian social customs and scenes of the middle class. Laran and Adhémar state that Boilly produced over 1000 genre paintings and between 4000 and 5000 portraits during his career. Boilly is also known as a pioneer of lithography, being credited with producing the first lithograph in France on June 9, 1802, a portrait of Johann Theodor Susemihl, which "passé pour la plus ancienne lithographie française à date certain" (Laran and Adhémar, p. 52). He exhibited at the Paris salon between 1791 and 1823, receiving a gold medal at the Salon in 1804. Boilly was made Chevalier of the Légion d'honneur in 1833. Rarity: Since the series was more often sold in single prints, complete sets of Boilly's Grimaces are of exceptional rarity; OCLC lists only three sets, each with various plate counts: the Bibliothéque nationale de France is the only institution with the complete number of 96 lithographs. A collection of 68 Boilly lithographs from Grimaces is located at the Kunstbibliothek Staatliche Museum zu Berlin, and a suite of 8 plates is located at the Getty Museum.

        Les Jsles Borromées

      Lago Maggiore - Isole Borromee 1823 - La veduta propone uno degli scorci incantati del lago Maggiore. Il viaggiatore "C'est là qu'il peut contempler à son aise les scènes magiques et variées que la nature lui présente comme encadrées dans un magique tableau". Al centro l'Isola Bella si eleva sulle altre isole. A sinistra l'Isola dei Pescatori o Superiore, "l'humble village de pecheurs qui est assis sur sa croupe, contraste heureusement avec le magnifique palais qui couronne sa brillante voisine".Più lontana l'Isola Madre formata da sette terrazze e coronata dall'ampio palazzotto. "L'Isola Madre, parée toute l'année de sa brillante verdure, offre l'image d'un printems perpétuel; le climat y est si doux, que l'oranger en plein air n'y redoute pas le les rigueurs de l'hiver".

        Reliquiae Diluvianae; or, Observations on the Organic Remains contained in Caves, Fissures, and Diluvial Gravel, and on other Geological Phenomena, attesting the Action of an Universal Deluge.

      London: John Murray, . First edition. 1823 - Pp. vii, [1], 303; 27 engraved or lithographed plates and maps (3 are finely hand-colored - 1 is folding), 1 folding printed table, some text-figures. Contemporary tan full-calf leather, spine with 5 raised bands lettered in gilt on black morocco title/author label in one compartment and with elaborate gilt decorations in the other five compartments, all page edges with marbling, 4to (11 x 8.5 inches). William Buckland (1784 - 1856) was an English theologian and geologist/paleontologist, writing the first full account of a fossil dinosaur (Megalosaurus). His work proving that Kirkdale Cave had been a prehistoric hyena den was praised as an example of how scientific analysis could reconstruct events from the distant past (this study is documented in 'Reliquiae Diluvianae'). Buckland was a proponent of the Gap Theory that interpreted the biblical account of Genesis as referring to two separate episodes of creation separated by a lengthy period; it emerged in the late 18th and early 19th centuries as a way to reconcile the scriptural account with discoveries in geology that suggested the earth was very old (modified after Wiki). In this volume, Buckland presents his "Gap Theory;" concluding "that species of animals that now exist together only in the tropics had coexisted in northern Europe with species still in existence and that this demonstrated a tropical climate in antediluvial times, before the deluge buried the bones in a layer of mud" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography, vol. II: 569). A scientifically valuable work that paved the way for our modern understanding of the age of the Earth and the role that geology plays in landscape evolution. From the library of Henry Labouchère with his armorial bookplate on the front endpaper. Labouchère (1831 - 1912) was an English politician, writer, publisher and theatre owner in the Victorian and Edwardian eras. Labouchère, was a member of parliament and edited his own magazine, 'Truth' (modified after Wiki). A few old mars to the calf covers, spine has been expertly rebacked with the original calf spine strip laid on with no loss (this old repair is barely noticeable), endpapers show some light marginal browning, the text and plates are tight, bright and clean with no defects, there is some minor offsetting from some plates onto their facing text or blank page; this is a beautiful copy of a rare work in near fine condition.

        The Plays of William Shakspeare

      London - F. C. and J. Rivington, 1823 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Thecomplete set of thisten volume1823 edition of Shakespeare's plays, uniformly bound. New edition. Accurately printed from the text of the corrected copy left by the late George Stevens IN 1773-93,and includes Samuel Johnson's famous preface. Steevens employed Johnson's text, but continued Capell's trend of adding new material and working from the original quartos rather than previous editors' own fanciful emendations, such as those of Warburton. Featuring a portrait frontispiece of Shakespeare to volume one. George Steevens was a celebrated literary editor andscholar,and commentator of Shakespeare's plays. Steevens's major achievements lie in the contributions he made to Shakespeare scholarship, to the study of early English drama, and to the study of Hogarth's work. He resurrected twenty of the Shakespeare quartos in 1766. The edition was obviously considered a valuable addition to the study of Shakespeare's plays. By 1779 Steevens had already acquired a well-deserved reputation as an editor of Shakespeare, because of his help not only with Johnson's 1765 Shakespeare and his, Steevens's, revision of the 1773 edition, but also with the later 1778 JohnsonSteevens Shakespeare, in which Johnson corrected or added to some of his earlier notes, adding but one new note. The reviewers for the Monthly Review and the Critical Review praised Steevens's efforts, and he became one of the most well-regarded of Shakespeare's editors. DNBComplete in ten volumes. Condition: Rebound in calf bindings with gilt designs to the spines. Externally, rubbing and marks to the boards, and wear to extremities. Six volumes have slight loss to the spines, and lifting to backstrips. Three front joints are slightly starting, with two rear joints very slightly starting. All hinges are very slightly strained.

        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.
