      Guatemala. July 15, 1823.. [5]pp. plus initial integral blank. Folio, folded sheets. Untrimmed. Small dampstain to outer margin. Very clean. Near fine. 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.

        State of the Cape of Good Hope, in 1822

      "The volume was written anonymously under the signature of 'A Civil Servant of the Colony', and it is claimed that it is 'a plain narrative of whatever may have attracted general attention', whilst the editor, Mr. H.T. Colebrook, states in his Preface, 'I have inserted brief notes at the foot of the page; and subjoin a few annotations on topics of interest, upon which I am desirous of delivering my own sentiments at greater length'. The author, a public official, had opportunities of inspecting Government papers, estimates, and statistics, and with regard to these matters, the volume may be taken to accurately represent the position of the Cape colony at this period. Full particulars are given with reference to the system of Government, Courts of Law, and Burgher Senate, the 'enregisterment of slaves', together with notes upon agriculture, viticulture, whale-fishing, &c. &c. There is an interesting description of Cape town, and 'of the manners, customs, and habits of its people'. the remarks are by no means uniformly complimentary to the Dutch inhabitants, and reflect in a curious light the somewhat primitive state of the majority of the population."

      . 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.

        Involuntary Thoughts

      London: Thomas M'Lane, Repository of Wit and Humour, 1823. First Edition. With six hand-colored plates (of eight), each plate containing two or more subjects. 1 vols. Oblong 8vo. Full green morocco, front wrapper preserved at back. Marginal repair at foot of one plate, not enetering image. Tooley cites eight plates, from the British Museum copy, but notes, "M'Lean's advertisement of this work in A Touch at the Fine Arts calls for 6 plates only." The six plates in this set correspond exactly to the six in the Dixon collection (sold 1937) and, like that set, two of the plates are dated 1823, the rest 1824.A humorous look at life's vicissitudes (under the caption "More Friends and less need of them" a startled host and hostess, presiding over an already over-crowded dinner table see an additional horde of unexpected guests enter the room; "A Fowl Conspiracy" shows two men stealing chickens; in "May the endeavour to Please be crown'd with success" a polite man and woman bow to one another and inadvertantly cause all sorts of havoc in the street). Alken was an early and spirited illustrator of Murphy's Law, "If things can go wrong, they will."Attractive copy of a classic collection.

Grant of 60 acres in near Hobart Town awarded to the son of a soldier of the New South Wales Corps, and signed by Governor Brisbane.In November 1820 Thomas Brisbane, then in command of the Munster district in Ireland, was appointed Governor of New South Wales.

        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.

        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. Single Boilly lithographs in black and white appear on the print market with some regularity. Condition: very fine impressions with delicate, artistic hand-colouring.
