        Island of Stromboli.

      1823 - London: R. Bowyer, 1809-10. Coloured aquatint. 305 x 400mm. A view of the volcanic island of Stromboli, engraved by William Watts for Mayer's 'Views in the Ottoman Dominions, in Europe, in Asia, and some of the Mediterranean islands, from the original drawings taken for Sir Robert Ainslie'. Luigi Mayer (1755-1803), an Italian-German artist, travelled extensively through the Mediterranean and the Ottoman Empire between 1776 and 1794. His watercolours and drawings form one of most important records of the Middle East in the 18th century. Mayer's patron was Sir Robert Ainslie, British ambassador to Turkey 1776-92: much of Mayer's work was presented to the British Museum as part of Ainslie's bequest, including the watercolour on which this print is based, in an album dated 1788.

        Éloge de la Pérouse . Ouvrage qui a obtenu l'églantine d'or, décernée par l'Académie des jeux floraux du Toulouse, au concours de 1823

      Firmin Didot, Paris 1823 - Octavo, 46 pp., with some of the foxing endemic to some French books of this period; very good in recent blue paper boards with morocco label. La Perouse eulogy. Very rare eulogy to La Pérouse published some thirty-five years after the disappearance of his two vessels, and a scant three years before the wrecks of the Astrolabe and the Boussole were discovered by the sandalwood trader Peter Dillon. Vinaty (sometimes 'Vinati') prepared the work for the Académie des Jeux-Floraux of Toulouse, where the eulogy won their prize l'Eglantine d'Or. The work is not only testament to the enduring importance of La Pérouse in the French-speaking world, it is also an interesting document of its time, because Vinaty shows a willingness to skip over the years of the Revolution and the rule of Napoleon. He is at pains to re-assert a continuity with the glory of France under Louis XVI, in the process presenting La Pérouse as a truly great French hero, but also as one capable of honouring the memory and achievements of Cook (a lengthy passage, for instance, praises La Pérouse for raising a suitable memorial above the tomb of Cook's successor Captain Clerke in Kamchatka). Throughout, the tone is pure Restoration, underlined by his quoting from the great exile writer Chateaubriand. The work's rarity is borne out by Ferguson, who first located a copy in the Edward Weber Allen collection in California in time for the addenda to volume II of his bibliography; the copy in the State Library of New South Wales was added with a revised note to the full Addenda volume of 1986. The work is also noticed in McLaren's Lapérouse in the Pacific, who added a copy in the Bibliothèque Nationale. Otherwise, Vinaty's work is not noted in many standard references (it is a surprising omission from Forbes's Hawaiian National Bibliography); nor is it listed in important collections such as Kroepelien and Hill.

        An Essay on the History and Theory of Music; and on the qualities, capabilities, and management of the human voice

      Whittaker, London 1823 - Large quarto, including 40 leaves of engraved musical scores continuously paginated with the text; old pencil marginalia, a little foxing and neat marginal repair of three leaves; a good copy in mid-nineteenth century black half with gilt lettering, slightly rubbed. Music and poetry by Byron's old collaborator. A treatise on the art of singing and the philosophy of music by Isaac Nathan, fondly remembered as the 'father of Australian music'. By most accounts a witty and vivacious character, Nathan was a scholar of Aboriginal music, composer of the first opera written in Australia, and a prominent figure in Sydney social circles. Born in Canterbury in 1790, Nathan's father was a singer in the local synagogue and instructed his son in the lore of traditional Jewish music. Throughout his life, Nathan forged links between Jewish music and mainstream European culture. In this respect he is best remembered for his collaboration with Lord Byron on the Hebrew Melodies of 1815. Nathan composed the scores for Byron's verse (including the enduring She Walks in Beauty) and the book was a resounding success for decades to follow. Following Byron's self-imposed exile and early death, Nathan continued to work as a singing instructor and composer. Nathan struggled with gambling debts throughout the late 1830s and finally sought a fresh start in Australia in 1841. He burst upon the parochial Sydney scene and quickly established a reputation as a singing teacher, composer, and vibrant conversationalist. Nathan was the first to record and memorialize the Aboriginal music and in 1847 composed Don Juan of Austria, the first opera written and produced in Australia. An Essay on the History and Theory of Music is an example of this fruitful cultural exchange, including illuminating detail on the history of Jewish melodies. It includes a table of Hebrew accents as pronounced by both Spanish and German (i.e. Sephardic and Ashkenazy) Jews accompanied by an engraved musical score. In this book Nathan insists that poetry and music are inseparable: 'Harmony prevails throughout the works of our Creator; it is perceivable in all living things, even to the minutest fibre of the smallest field-flower, and it is their just and symmetrical proportions which delight us by throwing a pleasing harmony over the whole. In poetry, sublimity of ideas, brilliancy of imagination, and the reasoning of philosophy, would be nothing if the versification did not strike in sweet numbers on the ear.' Nathan played an important role in the advancement of Australian music as the Sydney scene became increasingly cosmopolitan following the end of convict transportation. Possessed of mercurial curiosity (evidenced in the present book by an entire chapter concerning the effect of music upon animals) he was a successful ambassador for Jewish culture in both England and Australia. This copy is from the library of the Australian bibliophile and publisher Walter Stone, with his bookplate. An original early twentieth century photograph of Isaac Nathan's engraved tombstone is pasted to the front endpaper. Nathan died tragically in 1864, the first fatality of a horse-drawn tram in Sydney. The Australian Dictionary of Biography records he was buried in Camperdown cemetery. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Autograph inscription signed "CMvWeber" to an unidentified male correspondent

      53 x 126 mm., cut from the title page of one of Weber's works. Dated Dresden, October 22, 1823. In German (with translation). "Dedicated to the excellent master.... in great haste, in remembrance of his true admirer." Slightly worn and soiled; one vertical crease; portion of inscription abraided and thus illegible. . "A prototypical 19th-century musician-critic, [Weber] sought through his works, words and efforts as performer and conductor to promote art and shape emerging middle-class audiences to its appreciation. His contributions to song, choral music and piano music were highly esteemed by his contemporaries, his opera overtures influenced the development of the concert overture and symphonic poem, and his explorations of novel timbres and orchestrations enriched the palette of musical sonorities. With the overwhelming success of his opera Der Freischütz in 1821 he became the leading exponent of German opera in the 1820s and an international celebrity. A seminal figure of the 19th century, he influenced composers as diverse as Marschner, Mendelssohn, Wagner, Meyerbeer, Berlioz and Liszt." Philipp Spitta et al in Grove online

He called himself 'Portrait and Military painter' and was reputed to be an 'ex-captain of dragoons' but is not recorded in the Army List. Heath began life as a draughtsman and his main claim to fame rests on his having produced the first caricature magazine in Europe, The Glasgow later Northern Looking-Glass, 1825-1826. Although this was a provincial work and without much text, it does pre-date Charles Philipon's similar publication. The height of his popularity fell between the years 1809-34, after which his humour was displaced by that of Robert Seymour and John Doyle" (Houfe, p. 338).Abbey, Life 415.

        Four autograph letters to Sir Robert Smirke

      - Gracious correspondence with the architect of Lowther Castle - four autograph letters signed to "Dear Sir", "My dear Sir", "Dear Sir Robert": 11pp. 8vo, [London] (Charles Street) &c, January 1823-September 1841. The bifolium blank of the first letter torn with some loss at foot, the third on mourning paper. William Lowther (1757-1844, succeeded 1788 as second Bt, 1802 as second Viscount Lowther, created 1807 Earl of Lonsdale), friend of William Pitt the younger and patron of William Wordsworth, gave Robert Smirke (1780-1867, knighted 1832) his first important commission in Lowther Castle, Westmorland (1806-11). Recommended by George Dance and Sir George Beaumont, the tiro architect started work on the project in 1806, submitting in 1814 his almost final bill for £77,000 (on inheriting his uncle's estates in 1802, Lowther enjoyed an annual income of some £100,000), but remained on call, evidently, for the rest of the Earl's life. A grand, super-castellated fantasy of a building with an elaborate Gothic interior, the castle is now, alas, a ruin. "Lowther!" cried Wordsworth in his eponymous sonnet, "in thy majestic pile are seen / Cathedral pomp and grace, in apt accord / With the baronial castle's sterner mien . . . " The Earl dispatches his business with great courtesy. His first letter (26 January 1823) concerns "raising the Chandelier" - perhaps the "gilt-brass Gothic chandelier of massive proportions" attributed to Smirke and offered at Sotheby's, 4 June 2008 - and gives his go-ahead for a Lodge: "I think the spot you have fix'd on for the Site of the Lodge very proper, & whenever it is convenient to you to send the Instructions for erecting the Building, preparations shall be made accordingly." His second (21 February 1823) makes light of "Bernasconi's Demand" - much of the plasterwork at Lowther was done by Francis/Francisco Bernasconi. The third (18 February 1839, black-edged: the Countess had died, 6 March 1838) reports on the effects of the hurricane of 6 January 1839 - the "Night of the Big Winds" in Ireland and, hardly less dramatically, in the north of England. Lowther Castle, by Lonsdale's account, stood up comparatively well. "You will have heard no Doubt," the Earl writes, "the great Devastation which the late Hurricane has committed at Lowther, & the immense Loss in Timber - within three miles of Lowther We have lost upwards of ten thousand Trees, about five Hundred of which were in the Terrace Garden, the South Front, & the Wood to the Eastward, call'd Jack Croft, the tallest & finest being the most exposed, became the greatest sufferers." Two battlement stones have fallen at the castle (one breaking "a large Quantity of Crockery"), some slates are off the Coach House, and "almost the whole of the Wall on each side of the Lodge, to the north, [is] laid Flatt"; glass in the Conservatory has broken, but "the great Window in the Tower, which seem'd most exposed to the Violence of the Tempest, has not suffer'd to the extent which might have been expected". Will Smirke kindly inspect the enclosed report (no longer present) from "Joh Gibson (whose gramatical education does not seem to have kept Place with his other acquirements)" and give the benefit of his advice? In Lonsdale's last letter (10 September 1841), written in a shaky hand, the older man commiserates with his architect: "I have been sincerely griev'd for the severe suffering you have experienc'd from the severe operation you have undergone, and for the general effect which the Complaint has had on your Health. I hope you will now enjoy some Repose . . . I much regret not having seen You, but I have been a great Cripple from Rheumatism since early in November & am still suffering from its effects. Will you be be so good as to inform me to what amount I am your Debtor." The Earl died two and a half years later, aged 86. Smirke outlived him by 23 - dying at the age of 87.

        Die Insel Felsenburg. Mit einem Plan der Insel.

      Nürnberg Heinrich Haubenstricker 1823. Pappband der Zeit. Auf dem Titelblatt: "Altes verjüngt. Der Jugend gewidmet." Es handelt sich um die sehr selteneerste Ausgabe. Sie ist via WorldCat (weltgrößte bibliografische Datenbank) in keiner Bibliothek nachweisbar. Der Band erschien als erster Teil der Reihe "Altes verjüngt", die Nacherzählungen von Karl Lappe enthielt. Zu Grunde liegt die umfangreiche Dichtung "Wunderliche Fata einiger See-Fahrer" von Johan G. Schnabel (1731 - 1743). Die gesellschaftskritische Pseudo-Robinsonade Schnabels war einer der populärsten Romane des 18. Jahrhunderts und wurde 1827 nochmals von Ludwig Tieck nacherzählt und in dessen Fassung sehr bekannt. Diese erste, von der Karte der fiktiven Insel abgesehen, noch nicht illustrierte Ausgabe der Lappe-Fassung ist sehr selten.
