        Neapel, Blick über die Bucht zum Vesuv, links oben Castel Sant Elmo.

      - Aquarell, über Bleistift, auf Papier mit Wasserzeichen: J Whatman Turkey Mill 1824, rechts unten bezeichnet (vermutlich von fremder Hand) „Naples". 29,3:48 cm. Zwei Braunfleckchen am Oberrand. Literatur: W. Hauptmann: Peindre l’Italie Keiserman et Knébel: deux Vaudois à Rome vers 1800, Lausanne 2005, vgl. z.B. Abb. 67 u. 75. Franz II Knebel, verwandt mit Franz I Knebel (1789-1822) und Franz Kaisermann (1765-1833), kam bereits als dreizehnjähriger Knabe zu seinem Onkel nach Rom und wurde von Kaisermann ausgebildet und auch adoptiert und sie lebten gemeinsam in einer Wohnung an dem Piazza di Spagna. Kaisermann brachte dem jungen Künstler zwar sehr viel bei, unterband aber eine eigenständige künstlerische Entwicklung. Deshalb trennten sich beide 1829 im Streit und Knebel nahm sich in der Via Lucina 26 in Rom eine eigene Wohnung. Im April 1835 stellte er in seinem Atelier an dem Piazza di Spagna 31, wohin er mit seiner Familie nach dem Tode Kaisermanns gezogen war, Zeichnungen Bartolomeo Pinellis (1781-1835) und Kaisermanns aus. Mit eigenen Arbeiten beschickte er Kunstausstellungen in Mailand (1844), Brüssel (1851) und in Rom (1856, 1858, 1865). Studienreisen führten ihn nach Olevano und mehrmals nach Neapel.

        The exhibition of the Society of British Artists,

      Suffolk Street, Pall Mall East. MDCCCXXIV.

The work concludes with a list of the members, together with a list of the exhibitors with their addresses and the catalogue numbers of works exhibited.Artists at this time were the equivalent of the celebrities of today, feted by the aristocracy and royalty and collected by the powerful industrialists of the time. The elite amongst these were sometimes granted membership of the Royal Academy, but as the membership was limited to fifty members made up of sculptors, printmakers and architects, as well as painters, the election of a new Academician was dependent upon the death or resignation of an existing incumbent.

        Brockhaus: Allgemeine deutsche Real-Encyklopädie für die gebildeten Stände (Conversations-Lexicon). In zehn (10) Bänden. Sechste (6.) Original-Auflage, 10 Bände + 3 Bände Neue Folge

      Leipzig, F. A. Brockhaus, 1824 - 1826.. Sechste Auflage in 10 Bänden im Gesamtumfang von knapp 10.000 Seiten. Ferner erschien bereits von 1822 bis 1826 ein Ergänzungswerk (Neue Folge) in 2 Bänden (gebunden in jeweils 2 Halbbänden) im Umfang von ca. 3.300 Seiten, an sich ein eigenständiges Conve Vollständiges Grundwerk in 10 Bänden sowie die Bände 11/II, 12/I und 12/II (= Neue Folge, Bd. 1/II, Bd. 2/I, Bd. 2/II), insgesamt somit 13 Bände. Braune Original-Halblederbände mit goldgeprägten Rückentiteln auf zwei schwarzen Rückenschildern sowie goldgeprägten Ornamentbändern; Deckel mit mehrfarbigen Marmorbezügen und mit Lederecken; dreiseitiger Rotschnitt. Die 6. Auflage, ursprünglich noch als vierter Druck bzw. dritter Nachdruck der 5. Auflage vorbereitet, wurde noch vom Verlagsgründer Friedrich Arnold Brockhaus persönlich betreut, der aber noch vor ihrem Erscheinen, am 20. August 1823, verstarb. Die Auflage wird daher verschiedentlich auch als "Ausgabe letzter Hand" bezeichnet (vgl. Seemann, 76, ferner: Roland Schäfer, Die Frühgeschichte des Großen Brockhaus, in: Leipziger Jahrbuch zur Buchgeschichte, Bd. 3, 1993: S. 69 - 84).

Goethe, der über ca. 30 Lexikonausgaben und 20 Sprachwörterbücher verfügte, griff am liebsten auf den Brockhaus zurück (Seemann, S. 77 f.).. Lederrücken frisch und praktisch nicht berieben, lediglich Rückenschilder mit partieller Bereibung; Marmorbezüge, wie zumeist bei Bänden dieses Alters, partiell etwas beschabt, aber ohne größere Läsionen. Bei den Bänden 3 und 4 jeweils Vortitelblatt und Nachsatz etwas fleckig; Seiten sonst sauber und fleckenfrei, geradezu druckfrisch! Wenige Seiten des Bandes 12/II mit sehr leichter Hintergrundbräunung, sonst alle Seiten bräunungsfrei. Bd. 5 auf den ersten Seiten mit minimaler Wurmspur mit minimalem Buchstabenverlust auf wenigen Seiten. In toto frisches Exemplar dieser frühen Auflage, wie es nur noch sehr selten anzutreffen sein dürfte, mit drei Bänden des seltenen Ergänzungswerkes.

        Greece, in 1823 and 1824;

      being a series of letters, and other documents, on the Greek revolution, written during a visit to that country. ...... Illustrated with several curious fac similes. To which is added, the life of Mustapha Ali.Leicester Fitzgerald Charles Stanhope, 5th Earl of Harrington, (1784-1862) was an army officer who had held the post of deputy quarter-master general in India from 1817 to 1821. He was added to the half-pay list in 1823. In the same year he presented himself before the London Greek Committee as a liberal and a follower of Bentham and volunteered to be the Committee's agent in Greece, an offer which was immediately accepted."Stanhope saw the Greeks as Eastern people, similar to the Indians with whom he was familiar. Referring to them as ?'natives?' and ?'children?', Stanhope felt that they needed firm and authoritative guidance to set up an independent constitutional republic. These views brought him into conflict with most philhellenes, who had an idealized and romantic vision of the Greeks, and with many Greeks themselves, whose main aim was independence, not the establishment of a constitutional liberty.In November 1823 Stanhope met Byron at Cefalonia, in the Ionian Islands, and the following month at Missolonghi, on the western approaches to the Gulf of Cornith, he met Mavrocordato, the leader of the western Greeks, whom most outsiders regarded as the natural leader of a new state, but whom Stanhope regarded as just one among many factional leaders and one misguidedly willing to consider the imposition on Greece of a foreign monarch. At Missolonghi Stanhope sought to establish schools and particularly a free press, and was dismayed and irritated by the lack of enthusiasm for these projects shown by Mavrocordato and his ally Byron. In 1824 Stanhope approached Odysseus, leader of the eastern Greeks, then in control of Athens, in the hope of uniting the Greek factions. Odysseus, described by St Clair as ?'the most unusual Benthamite ever to burn a village or slit a throat?' (St Clair, 191), responded readily, if insincerely. Stanhope used his time to establish a school and another newspaper, earning the nickname the Typographical Colonel. He hoped to bring the parties together at a conference in Salona, getting them to form a unified constitutional government to receive the first instalment of the committee's loan, thereby blocking Mavrocordato's plans to gain control over the loan. Mavrocordato was persuaded by Byron just before his death to attend the conference, but ultimately neither he nor Odysseus did. Canning recalled Stanhope, possibly in deference to requests by Turkey, or possibly because his actions were undermining the position of Mavrocordato, who was seen as Britain's main ally. He left for England from Zante on the Florida with Byron's body in May 1824, leaving the country in a state of chaos, the leaders divided, and the loan inaccessible in the hands of the bankers, since there was then no one in the country who could authorize its release.Stanhope's letters to the Greek Committee were rapidly published as Greece in 1823 and 1824 (1824) to try to answer the inevitable criticism. William Parry in The Last Days of Lord Byron (1825) saw Stanhope's antipathy to Byron as the root of the trouble, and this account made a lasting impression." [Elizabeth Baigent in ODNB]. See also F.

        Histoire generale de la digestion (galley proofs).

      Paris - Corrected Galleys of an Unpublished Work Corvisart, Lucien (1824-82). Histoire generale de la digestion [caption title]. Author's interleaved & corrected proofs, bound in 2 vols., 8vo, the first volume comprising the Introduction historique sur la digestion en general. [ix]-clii; 144pp. Both paginations incomplete (text on last pages breaks off in mid-sentence). N.p., n.d. [Paris, not before 1863]. 216 x 138 mm. 19th cent. half calf, a little rubbed. Uneven browning, occasional foxing & soiling, but very good. Modern bookplate. Corrected Galley Proofs, with author's extensive annotations on about one-quarter of the pages, of what appears to be an unpublished work. Corvisart, the nephew of Jean Nicolas Corvisart des Marest, devoted a good portion of his career to the physiology of digestion, performing important research on the pancreas (see Garrison-Morton 1001) and publishing several works in the mid-19th century on various aspects of digestion and nutrition. He may have intended his Histoire generale de la digestion to be his crowning work in this field: written some time after the publication of his Collection de memoires sur une fonction peu connue du pancreas (1857-63), it tackles the entire history of digestion physiology from ancient times to his own era, and presents a detailed study of the function and purpose of the entire digestive and nutritional system from the stomach to the large intestine, with particular emphasis on the pancreas. When we checked OCLC showed no works by Corvisart published after the Collection de memoires, so that our set of corrected proofs represents what may be the only written evidence of Corvisart's scientific work after 1863.

        Journal of a Second Voyage for the Discovery of a North-West Passage From the Atlantic to the Pacific Performed in the Years 1821-22-23..

      John Murray, 1824, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good, First Edition, First PrintingMarbled paper over boards, half bound in leather, title tooled in gilt onto six compartment spine, all edges trimmed, leather headbands, 4to (10-1/2 x 8 inches [26.7 x 20.4 cm]) pp. (8), xxx, (2), 571, errata, 4 fold-out charts and 4 numbered fold-out views "Appearances of Lands" bound at rear, 31 plates [inc. frontis], 5 of which are maps. Maps and plates are not included in pagination, whereas all tables are. Collated, complete and tightly bound. Stain to spine leather, rubbing to boards, light offset and browning to some foldout maps and views, occasional foxing, discoloration and slight wave to pages. Crack in front hinge near the binders twine used to sew down front endpaper - as per book binding methods of the time where "...until the early years of the nineteenth century all endpapers, were sewn on, and never merely tipped on with paste as they sometimes are today." [Middleton, 4th edition, p. 108-111]. Sent by the Admiralty to search for a passage along the west coast of Foxe Basin, Parry sailed north of Southampton Island instead of south, the route preferred by previous navigators, and thus became the first to sail through Frozen Strait and confirmed Middleton's discovery of Repulse Bay. In late Aug. having found no passage through Repulse Bay, he explored the coast northward, sailing as far as Ross Bay. In Feb. 1822, Eskimos visited their winter quarters on Winter Island and spent much of the winter in the expedition's company, enabling Parry and his men to make detailed observations on their customs and language. After leaving their winter quarters, they explored farther north equipped with Eskimo maps (ESKIMAUX CHART No 1, No 2 & No 3, facing p. 197, 198 and 252) and found the entrance to Fury and Hecla Strait. Ice prevented their passing through it, but overland journeys confirmed that it led westward to a sea. Parry returned to winter quarters and attempted to sail through Fury and Hecla Strait the following summer. Unsuccessful in this attempt, and fearing scurvy, he then returned home. Ref.

        My Daughter

      Philadelphia: Morgan & Yeager, 1824. 12mo. 6ff. Illustrated with colored wood engravings throughout. Printed on one side only. Original printed wrappers, some chipping along backstrip, and a faint marginal dampstain. This poem formed part of a series of seven similar works collected under the title Grateful Tributes, published in London around 1812. As separate works, these titles were issued by various publishers, and ascribed to various authors, though the format remained fairly consistent. Gregory is the author of note, though this title is also attributed to Mary Elliott. Couched in these verses and accompanying illustration is the message that a daughter's role is to learn from the mother, then care for her through old age and infirmity, through to death. Shoemaker 16343. Rosenbach 633. OCLC records 3 copies, noting also a Darton 1812 edition and a Philadelphia 1816 edition, both extremely rare.

        Neapel, Blick über die Bucht zum Vesuv, links oben Castel Sant'Elmo.

      . Aquarell, über Bleistift, auf Papier mit Wasserzeichen: J Whatman Turkey Mill 1824, rechts unten bezeichnet (vermutlich von fremder Hand) "Naples". 29,3:48 cm. Zwei Braunfleckchen am Oberrand. Literatur: W. Hauptmann: Peindre l'Italie Keiserman et Knebel: deux Vaudois a Rome vers 1800, Lausanne 2005, vgl. z.B. Abb. 67 u. 75.. Franz II Knebel, verwandt mit Franz I Knebel (1789-1822) und Franz Kaisermann (1765-1833), kam bereits als dreizehnjähriger Knabe zu seinem Onkel nach Rom und wurde von Kaisermann ausgebildet und auch adoptiert und sie lebten gemeinsam in einer Wohnung an dem Piazza di Spagna. Kaisermann brachte dem jungen Künstler zwar sehr viel bei, unterband aber eine eigenständige künstlerische Entwicklung. Deshalb trennten sich beide 1829 im Streit und Knebel nahm sich in der Via Lucina 26 in Rom eine eigene Wohnung. Im April 1835 stellte er in seinem Atelier an dem Piazza di Spagna 31, wohin er mit seiner Familie nach dem Tode Kaisermanns gezogen war, Zeichnungen Bartolomeo Pinellis (1781-1835) und Kaisermanns aus. Mit eigenen Arbeiten beschickte er Kunstausstellungen in Mailand (1844), Brüssel (1851) und in Rom (1856, 1858, 1865). Studienreisen führten ihn nach Olevano und mehrmals nach Neapel.

        Die Zyklopenmauer in Palestrina.

      . Bleistift, 1824, auf Bütten mit Wasserzeichen: Vogel auf Dreiberg im Kreis, rechts unten bezeichnet "Ciclopenmauer in Palestrina". 19,5:27,3 cm. Mit Knickfalte. Für beide Zeichnungen von Richter und Wagner gilt, daß sie am 20. September 1824 während der Studienwanderung der Künstler in den Sabiner Bergen entstanden sind. Sie hatten diese Ortschaft nach einer Nachtwanderung erreicht, worüber Richter in seinen Lebenserinnerungen berichtet. Die Zeichnungen sind vor der Natur entstanden, wobei Wagner etwas rechts von Richter gesessen haben muß. Sie benutzten sogar Papier mit demselben Wasserzeichen. Literatur: Katalog 76: Carl Wagner. Frankfurt a.M., Joseph Fach, 1999, Nr. 19 mit Abb.. Die Zeichnung ist ein interessanter Belege für die freundschaftliche Verbundenheit beider Künstler, die sich später leider entzweiten. Palestrina ist eine Ortschaft, die nicht weit entfernt von Olevano liegt und von vielen Künstlern besucht wurde.

        Hügellandschaft in der Serpentara bei Olevano.

      . Bleistift, auf Bütten mit Wasserzeichen: Vogel auf Dreiberg im Kreis, links unten bezeichnet und datiert "Olevano den 11ten Sept. 24.". 26,7:38,3 cm. Verso: Vier Studien einer stehenden jungen Frau. Bleistift. Die Studien auf der Rückseite der Zeichnung scheinen nach vorne durch. Horizontale Mittelfalte, vereinzelte kleine Stockflecken. In der bisher einzigen umfassenden Ausstellung der italienischen Landschaften von Heinrich Reinhold, waren 5 Zeichnungen vom Sommer 1824 zu sehen, die alle Landschaften bei Olevano darstellen (vgl. Ausst. Katalog: Heinrich Reinhold (1788-1825). Italienische Landschaften. Gera 1988, Nrn. 159-163, Abb. Ss. 243-247). Einen vergleichbaren Landschaftsausschnitt in der Serpentara mit dem kleinen Wäldchen, den wir hier vorstellen, hat Reinhold bereits 1821, von nahezu demselben Standort aus, gezeichnet (vgl. op. cit. Nr. 75, Abb. S. 161).. Ersten Unterricht erhielt Reinhold an der Dresdener Akademie. 1807 übersiedelte er zu seinem Bruder und Förderer Friedrich Philipp Reinhold (1779-1848) nach Wien, wo er bis 1809 die Akademie besuchte. Ein Aufenthalt in Paris folgte von 1809-1814, danach wohnte er wieder in Wien. Hier begegnete ihm J.A. Koch (1768-1839) und er verkehrte im Kreise von Fr. Olivier (1791-1859). Nach einer Reise mit E. Welker (1788-1857) und J.Chr. Erhard (1795-1822) zum Schneeberg bei Wien unternahm er mit seinem Bruder Friedrich Philipp und den bereits oben erwähnten Malerfreunden im gleichen Jahr eine längere Studienreise nach Salzburg und in das Berchtesgadener Land. 1819 ging er mit Erhard nach Rom und verbrachte in den Jahren 1821, 1822 und 1824 die Sommermonate in Olevano. 1824 lernte er in Rom K.F. Schinkel (1781-1841) kennen, der Landschaftsstudien von ihm erwarb. Reinhold war vor allem Landschaftszeichner, malte aber seit 1816 auch in Öl. Er pflegte engen Kontakt zu J. Schnorr von Carolsfeld (1794-1872), C.W. Götzloff (1799-1866), A.L. Richter (1803-1884), J.H. Schilbach (1798-1851) u. a.

        Eigenh. Manuskript (Fragment).

      [Berlin, Herbst 1824].. 2 SS. 4to.. Ein Manuskriptblatt, enthaltend einen Teil der ersten Niederschrift von Hufelands Aufsatz über die "Pockenepidemie der Jahre 1823 und 1824, nebst ihren Resultaten, besonders in Beziehung auf modificirte Pocken", der im Oktoberheft 1824 von Hufelands "Journal der practischen Heilkunde" (S. 3ff.) erschien. Die hier vorliegenden Abschnitte wurden noch einer weiteren Revision unterzogen, entsprechen aber weitestgehend dem S. 9-10 und 12-13 abgedruckten Text: "[Am vierten Tage entdecke ich rothe] Flecken, die sich bald als Stigmata variolarum zeigten, die sich dann auch auf die Hände, und am folgenden Tage auf den ganzen übrigen Körper verbreiteten. Genug, es wurde eine sehr heftige Pockenkrankheit, die der Kranke nur mit Mühe überstand [...] Auch bey der jetzigen Epidemie bestätigte sich jene Wahrheit vollkommen. / Die ganze Epidemie wurde über See durch einen Pockenkranken nach Hamburg gebracht, und von da durch einen Handwerksburschen im December nach Berlin [...] Es ist in der That merkwürdig für einen, der eine lange Reihe von Jahren Beobachter des menschlichen Wirkens und Treibens gewesen ist, zu sehen, wie die Vorurtheile der frühern Zeit nur unter veränderter Gestalt sich immer wieder einschleichen [...] Und immer ist es derselbe Kampf [...]". - Mit umfangreichen Streichungen, Einschüben und Überarbeitungen.

      Paris: Nepveu, 1824. "Nouvelle Édition." Rare copy on PINK PAPER. Frontispiece and 5 plates (hand-colored and some hightened in gilt), 3 headpiece vignettes in 2 states (colored and on China paper) after Colin and others. cxvii, [i], 312 pp. 8vo. 19th-century half green morocco gilt and marbled boards, t.e.g., by Chipot. Fine. On Pink Paper A fine copy on pink paper of "one of the most lavish productions of the period" (Ray). "Clotilde de Surville" was supposedly a 15th-century poet whose manuscripts were later discovered and published in 1803. She was in fact an invention of one Jean François Marie, marquis de Surville, who passed the forged manuscripts off on unsuspecting publishers. Ray calls for 4 vignettes, while Cartaret does not specify a number. The present copy has 3, each in two states, colored and on chine appliqué.

        Second Anniversary Address (By the Vice-President); of the Agricultural Society of New South Wales

      Sydney: Robert Howe, 1824. Small octavo, 12 pp.; stitch-sewn in the original plain paper wrappers, an excellent copy. Robert Howe and Samuel Marsden. Very rare: Robert Howe-printed address by Samuel Marsden, in his capacity as president of the Agricultural Society of New South Wales. This is the second report of this important society, Marsden having taken over from Barron Field who had left for England, and is dated Parramatta 15 July 1824.Now the Royal Agricultural Society, the Society is one of the most important and long-standing Australian institutions, founded in 1823. Marsden is pleased to report that their early efforts have been richly rewarded, and his "Vice-Precident's Address" is an interesting catalogue of the Society. He begins by thanking Barron Field, before making a few comments on Phillip Parker King's return to England on the Bathurst, particularly noting that the specimens of tobacco he took home have proved of great interest, as have the timber samples; King has also sent some of the books the Society particularly requested, and the seeds he is sending are daily expected. Marsden mentions the intercourse that has begun with the Isle of France, and some specimens sent by Charles Telfair, most of which sadly did not survive the voyage although Charles Fraser, the Colonial Botanist, has hopes of the pineapples. He also notes that 'the vine... will soon be found of importance to the Colony.' Marsden is also enthusiastic about Oxley's survey of the Brisbane River, more so about the combined efforts of Allan Cunningham in Bathurst and Charles Throsby in the Southern Highlands.Prizes: fine woolled sheep to Hannibal Macarthur, Oxley, and William Howe; best Colonial stallions to S. Terry and Captain Piper.Ferguson recorded copies in the Mitchell, Public Library of New South Wales, and his own collection.

Original unobtrusive tax stamps "Zuid Holland 8 Pn" on lower blank margins on about a dozen leaves in each volume. A very nice copy, the text clean and without blemish COMPLETE SET, with the 186-page list of PRICES REALIZED, of the sale catalogue of the astounding Meerman collection, 'one of the most famous private libraries in Europe' (Munby), listing ca. 10,000 titles and 1,100 Manuscripts. Gerard Meerman (b. Aachen, 1715, d. Leyden, 1771) was the author of 'Origines Typographicae' (1765), one of the first detailed studies on the history of printing. Here Meerman claimed as the inventor of movable type not Johannes Gutenberg but Laurens Jansz. Koster, of Haarlem. On this matter Meerman was incorrect, although his efforts did much to spread bibliographical scholarship throughout Europe. His 'De Chartae Vulgaris seu lineae origine' (1767) was an extremely early essay on the history of watermarks. Meerman had acquired all the MSS belonging to the College de Clermont, in Paris: a major triumph. The Bibliotheca Meermanniana was inherited -- and greatly augmented -- by his son Johan (1753-1815), an attorney and one of the principal exponents of the foundation of the Royal Library, The Hague. The younger Meerman attempted to donate the entire collection it to that city. After that bequest was refused (sic!) it was sold by auction, for which the present catalogue was the vehicle of sale, realizing a total of 131,000 Guilders; Sir Thomas Phillipps attended the sale of the MSS in person (though the London bookseller Thomas Rodd bid for him) acquiring more than 650 of them (see Munby, Phillipps Studies, III). - To a few copies a portrait of J. Meerman was added, not present here as usual. REFERENCES: De Ricci, p. 120; G. Brunet; Blogie, IV, col. 57-58 (likewise without the portrait); LGB2. LITERATURE: Jos van Heel, "The Odyssey of the manuscript collection of Gerard and Johan Meerman" in: Books on the Move: Tracking copies through collections and the book trade / edited by Robin Myers, Michael Harris, and Giles Mandelbrote (2007).

        The Poems of Ossian: with dissertations on the era and poems of Ossian, and a life of the translator, James Macpherson, Esq

      Glasgow: Richard Griffin, 1824. 14 engraved plates. 2 vols. 12mo. Bound in full black straight-grained morocco, covers tooled with rolls in gilt and blind, with gilt pallets, ornaments and lettering on spine panels and raised bands, gilt rolls on board edges and turn-ins, a.e.g. Each volume decorated with a fine FORE-EDGE PAINTING depicting a rural/village scene. Lovely copy with fore-edge paintings of this famous literary forgery. Some of the poems were first published as Fragments of Ancient Poetry, Collected in the Highlands of Scotland, and Translated [by James Macpherson] from the Gaelic or Erse Language (Edinburgh: 1760). Soon after this first appearance in print, Ossian became a literary sensation; "the greatest poet since Homer." It is now believed that the poetry contained herein was written primarily, if not wholly, by James Macpherson (1736-1796), the work's "editor" and "translator."
