"Watercolourist and caricaturist William Heath (1795-1840)…worked mostly under the pseudonym of Paul Pry. 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 361. Tooley 257.

        Plans Raisonnés de Toutes les Espèces de Jardins

      Paris: Lebègue, 1823. Paris: Lebègue, 1823. Second edition, folio, half-title, [2], 56 (pages 29-32 misbound after page 36), [2, errata leaf]pp. 57 lithographed plates, orig. boards, rubbed at extremities, with a rather crude cloth reback. The second edition of these interesting and beautiful designs for landscaped gardens, by Gabriel Thouin (1747-1829), brother of the celebrated botanist André Thouin to whom the work is dedicated. Strongly influenced by contemporary English garden designs and the idea of the "picturesque", these parks are noteworthy for their elegance and ease which retains some of the great French tradition of formal gardening. There are designs for municipal and private parks and also for fruit gardens, orangeries, vegetable plantations etc. The margins of the plates, beautifully lithographed by C. Motte, show designs for buildings meant to adorn the gardens; among the more exotic there are several ruins, both classical and mediaeval, Chinese pavilions, arabic coffee houses, pagodas and a host of other small buildings and garden ornaments.

        Adventures of Johnny Newcome in the Navy

      , 1823. 1823. Written While the Insane Author Was Living in a Gravel Pit[WILLIAMS, Charles, illustrator]. MITFORD, John. The Adventures of Johnny Newcome in the Navy. A Poem, In Four Cantos, With Notes. The Third Edition. London: Published for the Author and sold by Sherwood, Neely and Jones [et al], 1823. Third edition in book form, originally issued 1819 in eight monthly parts. Quarto (10 3/16 x 6 3/16 in; 259 x 158 mm). vii, [1, To the Binder], 284 pp. Twenty hand-colored aquatint engravings with tissue guards. Handsomely bound (ca. 1895) by Samuel Tout of London (stamp-signed) in full deep crimson morocco with gilt-tooled corner-pieces and rolls. Gilt-rolled board edges. Gilt-ruled raised bands, gilt decorated and ornamented compartments. Broad turn-ins with gilt-tooled corner-pieces. Top edge gilt. Original paper backstrip with printed label preserved at rear. With the nautical bookplate of James Stewart Geikie, M.D. A fine copy.Not to be confused with an earlier book - also a poem in four cantos - with the same title by Alfred Burton with illustrations by Thomas Rowlandson published in 1818. It is a common mistake to presume that Alfred Burton was a pseudonym for John Mitford and that the two books are one and the same; many library records are littered with this misinformation, as is Wikipedia. Hardie declares that this Mitford was an "open imitation" of the Burton.This edition with the Williams plates appears far less frequently than the Rowlandson illustrated edition of 1818."Johnny Newcome" was British slang for a raw recruit, Army or Navy.John Mitford (1782-1831) “was a member of the elder branch of the family of Mitford of Mitford Castle in Northumberland…In April 1795…he entered the navy as midshipman of the Victory, in which he went out to the Mediterranean, and was present in the battle off Toulon on 13 July 1795. In the following year he was moved into the Zealous with Captain (afterwards Sir Samuel) Hood, and in her was present in the disastrous attack on Santa Cruz in July 1797, and at the battle of the Nile 1-2 Aug. 1798…According to his own account, after drinking freely on Christmas day 1800, he insulted his captain and left the service, that is to say, deserted; but as he was with Hood in 1801 in the Venerable the desertion may have been only imagined..."In 1814 Mitford was discharged from the navy as insane, and he took to journalism and strong drink…He is said to have edited the ‘Scourge, or Monthly Expositor of Imposture and Folly,’ which, after running for five years, died in December 1815; but though he contributed to the last four volumes, it does not appear that he was the editor. After this he wrote ‘The Adventures of Johnny Newcome in the Navy, a Poem in four Cantos’...The publisher who employed him found that the only way to make him work was to keep him without money. He therefore limited him to a shilling a day, which Mitford expended on two pennyworth of bread and cheese and an onion, and the balance on gin. With this, and his day's supply of paper and ink, he repaired to an old gravel-pit in Battersea Fields, and there wrote and slept till it was time to take in his work and get his next shilling. For forty-three days he is said to have lived in this manner…The poem is in octosyllabic verse, reeled off with the most careless ease, but the lines scan, the rhymes are good, and the ‘yarns’ such as might have been heard any day in the midshipman's berth...His other literary work was anonymous. He is said to have written ‘a libelous life of Sir John Sylvester,’ recorder of the city of London; to have edited ‘The Bon Ton Magazine,’ and to have been kept the while by his publisher in a cellar, with a candle, a bottle of gin, and a rag of old carpet for a coverlet. In 1827 he contributed a memoir of William Mitford the historian to the ‘Literary Gazette’…But Mitford had lost the power of distinguishing truth from falsehood. Ragged and filthy in his person, he was no doubt the John Mitford described by Captain Brenton as ‘lodging over a coal-shed in some obscure street near Leicester Square’…All attempts made by his friends to reclaim him failed. He was editing a paper called the ‘Quizzical Gazette’ at the time of his death, which took place in St. Giles's workhouse on 24 Dec. 1831” (D.N.B.).Illustrator Charles Williams (b.? - 1830) was a British caricaturist, etcher and illustrator. Between 1799 and 1815 he was chief caricaturist for S.W. Fores, a prominent British publisher of prints. He worked in a style similar to James Gillray. In his earlier works, Williams used the pseudonyms Ansell or Argus; with George Cruikshank and others he illustrated The Every-Day Book by William Hone, edited 1825–26. In addition to the work under notice he illustrated Dr Syntax in Paris (1820); My Cousin In the Army (1822); and The Tour of Doctor Prosody (1822).Victorian binder Samuel Tout worked out of Nassau Street in Soho, London 1868-79. He then partnered with William Coward in a bindery in Whitechapel but from 1880-1898 continued on his own in the same location.Abbey, Life 340. Tooley 332. Prideaux, p. 304. Hardie, p. 173.

        Humorous Designs

      London: E. & C. M'Lean, 1823. - Scarce First British Appearance of Boilly's GrimacesBOILLY, Louis-Léopold. Boilly's Humorous Designs. Seven Plates, Coloured After the Original Drawings. Price One Guinea. London: E. & C. M'Lean, 1823. First UK publication of a selection of Boilly's initial plates from his Recueil de Grimaces (1823). Folio (14 1/2 x 11 in; 375 x 275 mm). Seven hand-colored lithographed plates after Boilly with original tissue guards. Original printed buff wrappers. An excellent copy, housed in a later black cloth portfolio, lettered in gilt on front cover and with the bookplate of Alfred N. Beadleston. Exceedingly scarce, with only one copy in institutional holdings worldwide, at Harvard's Houghton Library "Address to the Public. On or before November the 1st, will be Published by E. and C. M'Lean, a Second Series of Boilly's Designs, executed in the same superior and elegant form. October 1, 1823" (inside front wrapper).The first plate is unnumbered and the only one with title, Reading the Will ("La lecture du testament," Les Grimaces 10 in the French original). The remaining six plates are identified only as Grimaces Pl. 1 through Grimaces Pl. 6. Grimaces Pl. 1 is Les Grimaces 1 in the French original; Grimaces Pl. 2 is Les Grimaces 6; Grimaces Pl. 3 is Les Grimaces 3; Grimaces Pl. 4 is Les Grimaces 7; Grimaces Pl. 6 is Les Grimaces 34, "Les Fumeurs et les Priseurs. We've yet to identify the French original of Grimaces Pl. 5 but it is likely within the first ten plates of Recueil de Grimaces."Today, at least outside France, Boilly is best known for his lithographs. Although credited with having drawn the first lithograph in France in 1802, he did not return to the medium until 1822, when he more or less abondoned oil painting. The caricatural aspects of his lithographic work go back to the English caricaturists Cruikshank, Gillray, and Rowlandson and the earlier innovations of Hogarth. His most popular series of lithographs, Recueil de Grimaces, was published between 1823 and 1828. The vignetted subjects of these prints appear to be cut out and applied to a plain background, a format also used by Pigal during the Restoration. The series was so popular that Philipon's printer Aubert re-published it in 1837 under the new title Groupes physionomiques. "The series Recueil de Grimaces, published over the course of five years, included ninety-six lithographs. Boilly's popularity during the Restoration was largely due to this series. The interest in expressive heads had precedent in France. During the late eighteenth century, physiognomy, the art of reading inner character by means of facial expressions, was popularized by engravings illustrating Lavater's well-known Essays on Physiognomy, which may well have influenced the format of Boilly's Recueil de Grimaces' (The Charged Image: French Lithographic Caricature).The son of a wood-carver, Louis-Léopold Boilly lived in Douai until he was seventeen years of age, when he went to Arras to receive instruction in trompe-l'oeil painting at Domenica Doncre before moving to Paris in 1785. Between 1789 and 1791 he executed eight small scenes on moralizing and amorous subjects for the Avignon collector Esprit-Claude-François Calvet (1728–1810), including The Visit (1789; Saint-Omer, Musée Hôtel Sandelin). He exhibited at the Salon between 1791 and 1824 and received a gold medal at the Salon in 1804. These paintings thoroughly observed and reflected all aspects of urban life, its costumes and its habits, between the revolutionary period and the Restoration. In 1823, Boilly produced a series of humorous lithographies entitled Grimaces. In 1833, at a time when his popularity was declining, he was admitted to the Légion d’honneur and the Institut de France. His three sons, Julien Léopold (1796-1874), Édouard (1799-1854) and Alphonse Léopold (1801-1867), were also painters.

        Familienglück

      1823. Bleistift auf Papier, oben rechts signiert, bezeichnet und datiert: "am Königs=See 1823. H Hess", verso in blauer Tusche bezeichnet, 19,7 x 24,6 cm. Professionell unter säurefreiem Museumspassepartout montiert.. Auf den ersten Blick wirkt die Zeichnung wie eine bäuerliche Szene. Hinter der idyllischen Kulisse verbirgt sich aber das religiöse Thema der Madonna mit Jesuskind und Johannes dem Täufer. Das Motiv stammt aus dem Themenspektrum der Nazarener, stand doch der junge Hess noch unmittelbar unter deren Einfluss, als die Zeichnung entstand. Auch stilistisch ist sie hiervon geprägt - die Zeichnung ist perfekt, die Linie sorgfältig durchgezogen, die Dargestellten idealisiert.

The interest in expressive heads had precedent in France...During the late eighteenth century, physiognomy, the art of reading inner character by means of facial expressions, was popularized by engravings illustrating Lavater's well-known Essays on Physiognomy, which may well have influenced the format of Boilly's Recueil de Grimaces' (The Charged Image: French Lithographic Caricature).Although included within the original Recueil de Grimaces, plates 41-47 were issued separately in 1824 as Les Sept péchés (The Seven Deadly Sins). "Representations of the seven deadly sins were no novelty in the nineteenth century, being familiar from medieval decorative programs for churches in both painting and sculpture. Biolly followed an age-old tradition in these images" (ibid).The son of a wood-carver, Louis-Léopold Boilly lived in Douai until he was seventeen years of age, when he went to Arras to receive instruction in trompe-l'oeil painting at Domenica Doncre before moving to Paris in 1785. Between 1789 and 1791 he executed eight small scenes on moralizing and amorous subjects for the Avignon collector Esprit-Claude-François Calvet (1728–1810), including The Visit (1789; Saint-Omer, Musée Hôtel Sandelin). He exhibited at the Salon between 1791 and 1824 and received a gold medal at the Salon in 1804. These paintings thoroughly observed and reflected all aspects of urban life, its costumes and its habits, between the revolutionary period and the Restoration. In 1823, Boilly produced a series of humorous lithographies entitled Grimaces. In 1833, at a time when his popularity was declining, he was admitted to the Légion d’honneur and the Institut de France. His three sons, Julien Léopold (1796-1874), Édouard (1799-1854) and Alphonse Léopold (1801-1867), were also painters. The Plates:9. L'Adroit Barbier21. Ah! Le chie-en-lit, lit, lit.23.

Additional Observations on Penal Jurisprudence, And the Reformation of Criminals; Containing Remarks on Prison Discipline, In Reply to an Article in the Edinburgh Review, And on the Punishment of Criminals by Solitary Confinement, As Proposed in Some of the United States of America. With an Appendix, Containing a Correspondence on That Subject, and the Latest Reports of the State Prisons of Philadelphia, New York, Massachusetts, &c. London: Printed for T. Cadell, 1823. 141, 118 pp. Octavo (5-3/4" x 9"). Contemporary gray paper boards with contrasting quarter paper spine, printed spine label, untrimmed edges. A few inkstains and light rubbing to boards, backstrip worn, boards partially detached but secure. Author presentation inscription to Gulian Verplanck to front free endpaper. Light foxing in a few places, interior otherwise fresh. * Only edition. The early nineteenth century was a watershed period in the history of penology. Many important contributions were made at this time by such luminaries as Bentham, Lieber, Livingston and Tocqueville. Roscoe's work was equally important. Believing that retribution should play no part in criminal jurisprudence, he advocated milder punishments, believing they would reform the criminal. He outlined these ideas in Observations on Penal Jurisprudence, And the Reformation of Criminals (1819). He elaborated them, and responded to critics, in two later volumes: Further Observations and Observations on Penal Jurisprudence, And the Reformation of Criminals, Part III (1825). Verplanck [1786-1870] was a prominent member of the New York Bar and an important reformer. He served four terms in the U.S. Congress, where he was chairman of the Ways and Means committee.

        Scraps From the Sketch-Book of Henry Alken

      , 1823. 1823. A Very Scarce AlkenWith Forty-Two Hand-Colored PlatesThe Schwerdt - Duke of Gloucester CopyALKEN, Henry. Scraps From the Sketch-Book of Henry Alken. Engraved by Himself. Containing Forty-Two Plates. London: Thomas M'Lean, 1823. Second edition (plates dated 1820), complete; preceded by that of 1821 and followed by that of 1825, each of great rarity. Oblong folio (9 9/16 x 13 5/8 inches; 243 x 347mm.). Title leaf (verso blank), and forty-two hand-colored engraved plates, twelve with multiple images. Bound ca. 1900 by Morrell of London (stamp-signed) in half plum straight-grain morocco over cloth. Plum straight-grain morocco title label lettered in gilt to upper board. The Schwerdt copy, with his bookplate and that of Prince Henry, first Duke of Gloucester. A bright, clean, and superb copy of an extremely scarce album by Henry Alken.While Siltzer notes an Alken Sketch Book of 1820 (34 plates), and the Scraps... edition of 1822, he makes no mention of an 1823 edition. It is not in found in Tooley or Abbey in any edition.The "Scraps" include equestrian, hunting, dog, bowling scenes, etc. In short, each print features a sporting tableau.Of Alken, Siltzer wrote, "It took but a short time for the leading art publishers of London to recognize his genius and to discover that they had 'struck a reef' of both artistic and financial value, and the well-known firms of Thomas M'Lean, S. and J. Fuller, and Rudolph Ackermann were not slow to reaping full benefit... It appears that Alken himself occasionally engraved plates, and thus added to the facility of production..."C.F.G.R. Schwerdt (1862-1939) was the esteemed collector whose collection of sporting books up to WWII was considered the finest ever amassed. The catalog to his collection, Hunting, Hawking Shooting, is a standard reference. Prince Henry, first duke of Gloucester (1900-1974) was a soldier and member of the British Royal Family, the third son of King George V and Queen Mary.Schwerdt I, p. 21. Cf. Siltzer, p. 71.

        Plans Raisonnà s de Toutes les Espà ces de Jardins.

      Paris: Lebà gue 1823 - Second edition, folio, half-title, [2], 56 (pages 29-32 misbound after page 36), [2, errata leaf]pp. 57 lithographed plates, orig. boards, rubbed at extremities, with a rather crude cloth reback. The second edition of these interesting and beautiful designs for landscaped gardens, by Gabriel Thouin (1747-1829), brother of the celebrated botanist Andrà Thouin to whom the work is dedicated. Strongly influenced by contemporary English garden designs and the idea of the "picturesque", these parks are noteworthy for their elegance and ease which retains some of the great French tradition of formal gardening. There are designs for municipal and private parks and also for fruit gardens, orangeries, vegetable plantations etc. The margins of the plates, beautifully lithographed by C. Motte, show designs for buildings meant to adorn the gardens; among the more exotic there are several ruins, both classical and mediaeval, Chinese pavilions, arabic coffee houses, pagodas and a host of other small buildings and garden ornaments.

        Jessonda. Grosse Oper in drey Aufzügen von Gehe. In Musik gesetzt von Louis Spohr. Vollständiger Klavierauszug von Ferdinand Spohr. 3 Teile in 1 Band.

      Leipzig, C. F. Peters, o. J. (1823). Format: Qu.-Fol.. [4], 7, [1]; 69, [1]; 47, [1] S.. Alles in Kupfer gestochen.. Weinroter Chagrinlederband der Zeit mit goldgeprägtem Rückentitel, reicher Rücken-, Deckel-, Steh- und Innenkantenvergoldung sowie dreiseitigem Goldschnitt Vorderdeckel etwas fleckig, Gelenke minimal brüchig, leicht bestoßen.. 3 Teile in 1 Band. Vollständiger Klavierauszug von Ferdinand Spohr. Erste Ausgabe. In französischem Prachtband gebunden*** Erste Ausgabe des vollständigen Klavierauszugs der romantischen Oper "Jessonda" nach dem Libretto in von Eduard Heinrich Gehe (1793-1850) und mit der Musik von Louis Spohr (1784-1859). Begeistert von Carl Maria von Webers Oper "Der Freischütz", die 1821 uraufgeführt wurde, schuf der seinerzeit bedeutendste lebende Komponist Deutschlands sein Meisterwerk ab 1822. Sprache und Musik sollten im Theater eine Symbiose eingehen, die den Weg zu Richard Wagners "Gesamtkunstwerk" wies. Leitmotive durchweben das zwischen Singspiel und großer Oper stehende Werk, das im Fernen Indien, auf der portugiesischen Insel Goa spielt. Die hübsche, junge Witwe Jesonda soll ihrem Gemahl durch Verbrennung auf dem Scheiterhaufen ins Jenseits folgen. Doch der holde Tristan kann seine einstige Jugendgeliebte vor den Oberbrahmanen erretten. Eduard Heinrich Gehe hatte das Libretto nach dem 1770 verfassten französischen Drama "La Veuve du Malabar ou L'Empire des coutumes" von Antoine-Marin Lemierre (1723-1793) für Louis Spohr bearbeitet. Der Klavierauszug gliedert sich nach den Akten in drei eigens paginierte Teile, der Text der Sänger ist ebenfalls unter die Notensysteme gesetzt. Uraufgeführt wurde das Werk am 28. Juli 1823 in Kassel. Die geschlossene, in sich stimmige Form der durchkomponierten Oper erfreute sich höchstem Erfolg und größter Beliebtheit, so dass zahlreiche Folgeaufführungen in Deutschland und Europa stattfanden. Dies war auch dem Exotismus der Handlung zuzuschreiben, der höchst aufwändige, kostbare Inszenierungen nahe legte, so dass Spohr äußerte: "Beim Eintritt ins Orchester wurde ich mit allgemeinem Jubel begrüßt" (zur Leipziger Aufführung). Titel mit kleinem, hübschen Stempel des "Museums für Hamburgische Geschichte" und einem alten Doublettenvermerk "Dpl". Nur wenige, blasse Wasserränder und Feuchtigkeitsfleckchen, meist sehr sauber und nur minimal gebräunt. Der überaus reich goldgeprägte Einband gehört zu den schönsten Beispielen der romantischen Buchbinderkunst aus Frankreich. Die breiten Deckelbordüren zeigen dem Empire entlehnte Ornamente wie Palmetten, Voluten, Bouquetkelche etc. Auf dem Rücken eine große Lyra und auf dem Vorderdeckel in Versalien eingeprägte: "Fanny Bertheau d. 3. November 1828", einer Musikerin, der die Prachtausgabe gewidmet wurde. Die Spiegel und fliegenden Vorsätze sind mit türkisfarbenem Lackpapier bezogen, die Spiegel sind dann mit rechteckiger Blindprägung und breiter Bordürenvergoldung geziert.

      Stuttgart, Ebner, 1823-1824].. Folio (c. 61 x 53 cm). 17 (instead of 18) chalk lithographed plates by L. Ekemann-Alesson after R. Kuntz. Wants lith. title, lith. dedication, 3 ff. of letterpress text. Stored in custom-made half calf portfolio with silk boards, lined in silk.. First and only edition. Commissioned by the Board of the Württemberg Stud, the first Arabian stud in Europe, this almost unobtainable series of large format plates shows all the Stud's full-blooded Arabian horses with decorative oriental backgrounds. The plates constitute extremely early examples of chalk lithographs (listed individually by Winkler, Frühzeit der dt. Lithographie, 180, 57). - Some foxing and duststaining; occasional edge tears repaired. Of the utmost rarity. Kuntz (1797-1848) was known for his "excellent depictions of horses" (cf. Thieme/B.); throughout his brief career he studied thoroughbreds in England, Hungary, and Paris as well as in Germany. In 1832 he became Painter to the Court of Karlsruhe, Baden; he suffered a stroke in 1846 and died in the newly-founded Illenau mental hospital. - Nissen, ZBI 2327. Brunet Thieme/Becker XXII, 116.

        Kreta. Ein Versuch zur Aufhellung der Mythologie und Geschichte, der Religion und Verfassung dieser Insel, von den ältesten Zeiten bis auf die Römer-Herrschaft. 3 Bände.

      Göttingen, C. E. Rosenbusch, 1823 und 1828/1829.. 8vo (21 : 12 cm). XIV, 454 S., 1 Bl. Errata; XL, 447 S.; XIV, 536 S. Mit 3 Faltkupfern von Riepenhausen: Inselkarte (20 : 42.5 cm, nach Entwurf des Verfassers), Labyrinthplan und Relief der Europa. Glatte Halblederbände d. Zt. mit Rückenvergoldung, die Deckel mit Achatmarmorpapier in Gelb- und Grautönen bezogen, marmorierter Schnitt.. Einzige Ausgabe der ersten Monographie zur antiken Geschichte Kretas. "Während der erste Band die Topographie der Insel und die Geschichte der ältesten Zeiten behandelt, schildert der zweite das Minoische, der dritte das Dorische Kreta. Das Werk ist eine vortreffliche Leistung, ebenso ausgezeichnet durch die Vollständigkeit des in ihm gesammelten Materials, wie durch verständige Kritik und übersichtliche Anordnung" (ADB XII, p. 532). - Hoeck (1794-1877) war Althistoriker und Universitätsbibliothekar in Göttingen. In der Vorrede von 1823 klingt Faszination besonders für die Frühgeschichte der Insel an: "Kretas Geschichte beginnt in so ferner Zeit, seine Glanzperiode gehört so hohem Alter an, dass es bereits schon sank, als das übrige Hellas erst aufblühte ... wagte man auch nicht über die Urbevölkerung Kretas zu entscheiden, so stand es doch fast wie ein Wunderland grauer Ferne da, und galt vorzüglich in religiöser Hinsicht als Haupt- und Urquelle von Hellas". Ein wesentlicher Abschnitt des ersten Bandes untersucht die am kretischen Ida heimischen Dämonen, die als Entdecker und erste Bearbeiter von Kupfer und Eisen gelten: "Idäische Daktylen und die Anfänge der Metallurgie". - Ekkekaki, Ta Kretika Biblia I, 1991, no. 413; nicht bei Blackmer. - Auf feinem Papier, vereinzelt stockfleckig, Band III etwas stärker. Frisches, elegant gebundenes Exemplar.

        Messe solennelle a quatre parties Solo et choeur avec accompagnement a grand orchestre arrangee pour le Piano par Ch. G. Rinck. Oeuvre 123. Mainz u. Paris, fils de B. Schott [PN. 2582] (1827). 4°. Gestoch. Titel u. 98 S. mit gestoch. Noten, unbeschnittenes Exemplar im Original-Umschlag.

      . . Kinsky S. 365 - nicht bei Hoboken.- Die besonders seltene Erstausgabe des Klavierauszuges zur Missa solemnis. Nach Dorfmüller S. 231 noch seltener als die originale Partitur-Ausgabe. Gespickt mit "Zumutungen an die Singstimme" (Adorno) nimmt die Missa in gesangstechnischer Hinsicht manche Interpretations-Schwierigkeiten im Chor-Part der Symphonie Nr. 9 vorweg. Das Motto des Komponisten über der Niederschrift des Kyrie "Vom Herzen ! Möge es wieder zu Herzen gehen" findet möglicherweise nur durch die radikal eingesetzte Materie aller gesangs- und spieltechnischer Möglichkeiten die Chance seiner Wirkung. Daß der Komponist seinem Freunde Zelter die Einrichtung einer A-capella-Fassung der Missa genehmigt hat (Konversationshefte Februar 1823), mutet darüber geradezu grotesk an. - Titel mit kl. Namenstempel u. etw. wasserrandig, nur gering fleckig, die unbeschnittenen Ränder etwas angestaubt, Umschl. mit ergänzten Randläsuren.# First edition of the piano-vocal score (same year as the publication of the full score) of Beethoven's choral masterwork, the Missa Solemnis, fully engraved.- The Piano-vocal score is even rarer than the first edition of the full score.- Uncut and with original typographical printed wrappers (spine and in the marginal area with small restorations).
