        VASE N. 24 [and] VASE N. 25 [An Original Colour Aquatint Plate From] Collection Des Vases Grecs by De M. Le Compte De Lamberg Expliquee Et Publiee Par Alexander De LaBorde

      Paris Imprimerie De Jules Didot Aine 1813-1824 - From the first edition of this monumental work on classical art. An original aquatint printed in terracotta-red and black over a white background. This plate, XL of volume II, is one of the finest plates of the collection. It represents two juxtaposed, black-glazed vases, a terracotta-figured warrior is seen on the left vase, while a terracotta-figured griffon in an ornate border is seen on the vase to the right. The plate is numbered and each vase is captioned. Printed on a folio captioned sheet measuring 22.5" x 16.5", the two vases are each over 9" tall. , Now presented in cream mounting boards 26" x 22", glazed behind clear mylar. A fine and beautifully preserved plate in excellent condition. ONE OF THE MOST IMPRESSIVE PLATES OF THE COLLECTION, this plates features two full views of vases, providing a sense of depth and grace far deeper then the typically flat images associated with this famous work. This plate is from the original edition of LaBorde's COLLECTION DES VASES GRECS DE MR. LE COMTE DE LAMBERG. The Count of Lamberg, Ambassador to the King of Naples, assembled a remarkable collection of approximately 500 vases which included a number given to him by the Queen of Naples. Laborde, mindful of faults in the illustrations of the famous Hamilton catalogues, was intent on producing an even finer book, and rendering the objects with 'extreme fidelity'. Brunet said of the production, "the precious pieces [in this collection] are shown here with remarkable precision." Quérard noted, "this work deserves particular attention for its fine execution. It was attempted as much as possible to present facsimiles, so to speak, of the vases, with all the colours and figures that can be seen on these precious pieces." [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A journal of the travels and sufferings of Daniel Saunders.

      Salem, MA, Joshua & John D. Cushing, 1824. - 12mo. 48 pp. With woodcut frontispiece. Modern marbled half cloth. Daniel Saunders, an officer in the American merchant navy, left Salem, Massachusetts, on a voyage to the Cape of Good Hope on 4 May 1791. He served as second mate aboard the "Grand Sachem", a merchant vessel under the command of Captain Jonathan Carnes. The ship arrived at the Cape without incident, after a voyage of 116 days, and Saunders transferred to the "Commerce", which was sailing for India. After travelling up the coast of Africa and along the coast of Arabia, the ship was wrecked off Oman, at Cape Mirbat, on 10 July 1792. Saunders was among the few survivors; after a long and difficult crossing of the desert he succeeded in reaching Muscat. There he was able to recover and signed up on an English ship heading for Bombay. He left India on 12 of June. He recorded the story of his voyage in a diary which he published, with the permission of the U.S. Congress, on his return to Salem in November 1794. The fifteen-page appendix contains a general description of Arabia which must be regarded as one of the earliest American descriptions of Arabia based on personal observation. Very rare. - Spotted & browned; early ownership of Eugene Noyes at head of title page. Xavier Beguin Billecocq, "Oman", p. 154f. Evans 22136. Cf. Macro 2014 (1794 ed.). Sabin 77172.

        The History of Ancient and Modern Wines.

      London: Baldwin Cradock and Joy. 1824 - FIRST EDITION. Large 4to, 270 x 210 mms., pp. xvi, 408, including half-title, with 8 engraved vignettes in text and 24 engraved initials, all on vinous themes, folding Appendix leaf between pages 380 and 381, bound in contemporary (?original) embossed cloth, rebacked in slightly different cloth; front hinge crudely repaired, rubber stamp of W. H. Hirst on recto of front free end-paper, tape marks on bookplate of William Farran on front paste-down end-paper, extremities worn, small stain on front cover, but a reasonably copy, inscribed by Henderson to Farran, viz., "Wm Farran Esq/ with the Author's best Respects." Farran or Farren is possibly the actor William Farren (1786 - 1861). Henderson (1779/80–1863) was born in Aberdeen, where he had his early schooling; he later attended the University of Edinburgh, where he graduated M. D. in 1803. ODNB notes "The work for which Henderson is best-known is his History of Ancient and Modern Wines (1824), an elegant book embellished by engravings of classical figures, grapes, and garlands. Henderson's account of wines and wine production was based on observations made during visits to the wine-growing districts of France, Italy, and Germany, to the sherry-producing districts of Spain, and to Portugal. His remarks about wine production in Madeira show that he had visited the island. His discussion of wines of the Cape includes comments on the methods used in production, and he remarked that the only exception to their execrable quality was found in wines from farms at the foot of Table Mountain. Henderson's copy of Edward Barry's Observations Historical, Critical and Medical on the Wines of the Ancients (1775) is extensively annotated and appears to form the basis for his own book."

        Drei Mädchen in bergiger Landschaft, sinnend um ein Stundenglas sitzend.

      . Radierung mit zartem Plattenton, "inv. 1824", auf chamoisfarbenem Velin. 15,4:17 cm. Provenienz: Doublette Königliches Kupferstichkabinett, Berlin, mit Veräußerungsstempel, vgl. Lugt 1610. Literatur: Stoll 138. - Sehr guter Abdruck mit vollem Rand. Mehrere Feder- und Bleistiftstudien belegen, wie sich Ludwig Emil Grimm mit seiner Bildidee, die Vergänglichkeit alles Irdischen darzustellen, auseinandersetzte. Nach mehreren Entwicklungsstadien entstand schließlich die vorliegende Fassung, ein "Memento mori", ikonographisch eigenwillig und ungewohnt.. Der vor allem als Radierer tätige Grimm war 1804-1808 Schüler der Kasseler Kunstakademie bei Gottlieb Kobold (1769-1809), Andreas Range (1762-1828) und Ernst Friedrich Ferdinand Robert (1763-1843). Durch seine Brüder Jacob und Wilhelm Grimm wurde er mit Clemens Brentano (1778-1842) und Achim von Arnim (1781-1831) bekannt, mit denen er zusammenarbeitete. Wohl 1807 lernte Grimm Bettine Brentano (1785-1859) kennen, von der er zahlreiche Porträts anfertigte. In November 1808 zog er nach Landshut zu Brentano und dessen Schwager Friedrich Carl von Savigny (1779-1861). Auf ihre Vermittlung ging er nach München und erlernte Kupferstechen bei Carl Ernst Christoph Heß (1755-1828). Zugleich studierte er an der Münchner Akademie unter Andreas Seidl (1760-1834). Unterbrechung des Studiums 1814 durch Teilnahme an den Freiheitskriegen. Mit Georg Brentano reiste er im Frühjahr 1816 nach Italien, wo er zwei Monate blieb. 1817 kehrte er nach Kassel zurück. 1824 reiste Grimm zum ersten Mal nach Willingshausen und wurde zum Mitbegründer der Willingshäuser Malerkolonie, eine der ersten Malerkolonien Deutschlands. 1832 wurde er an die Kasseler Kunstakademie als Lehrer berufen.

        "Echelet picumne & Echelet grimpeur, mâle"

      Presumably Paris, 1824. Watercolour of two birds, 480 x 350 mm., on wove paper, signed (on the lower branch) "J.G. Prêtre. 1824", pencil annotations, some inoffensive spots and marks to the verso; very good. Two Australian treecreepers painted in Paris. Beautifully finished original watercolour of a Brown Treecreeper (Climacteris picumnus) and a White-throated Treecreeper (Cormobates leucophaea) by the prolific zoological artist Jean Gabriel Prêtre. Prêtre (1768-1849) was a French artist who studied under the great Gerard van Spaendonck. He moved to Paris to work on the collections of Josephine at Malmaison, and also became associated with the Muséum national d'histoire naturelle. In the early decades of the nineteenth century Prêtre moved in the first scientific circles in Paris, working with key figures such as Audebert, Cuvier, Desmarest and de Blainville. Prêtre also worked on the natural history atlas published as part of the official account of the Freycinet voyage.This study of two Australian treecreepers was later turned into plate 281 of Temminck's Nouveau recueil de planches coloriées d'oiseaux... (Paris, 1820-1839). Temminck's lavishly illustrated work was issued in 102 parts between 1820-1839 as a kind of continuation to Buffon's Histoire naturelle des oiseaux (1770-1786). In total the published work contained some 600 engraved plates, figuring around 800 birds (many two to a plate, as here). The two central artists in the publication were Nicolas Huet and Prêtre, and the finished publication is considered "the most monumental work of the post-Napoleonic period" (Balis). Nonetheless, it is noticeable that compared to this original watercolour the published sketch has lost some of the fineness of detail, making this an exceptionally important survival.It is very likely that the birds depicted by Prêtre were in fact collected by the scientists of the Freycinet voyage, but there is nothing in Temminck's book which explicitly confirms this hypothesis.

        Determination experimentale de la valeur du metre en longueurs d?ondes lumineuses

      With 2 full - page engravings and numerous charts in the text. Half morocco and marbled boards, rebacked with the original backstrip laid down, gilt decorations on the spine; interior clean, all edges gilt. A unique copy inscribed to astronomer Benjamin Apthorp Gould from each member of the Comité Internationale du Poids et Measures, with a photograph of them tipped in. First separate edition of this scarce work by renowned scientist Albert Michelson, the first American Nobel Prize winner for physics. The work describes the length of the international meter bar, which Michelson originally measured in terms of wave - lengths of cadmium light. Two years earlier, Michelson found that the red spectral line of natural cadmium was exceptionally coherent. He then developed an interferometer to determine the length of the International Prototype Meter. His measurements gave the meter a value of 1,553,164.13 times the wavelength of cadmium red in air, at 760 mm of atmospheric pressure at 15 C. This copy is inscribed to the noted American astronomer Benjamin Apthorp Gould (1824 - 1896), who founded the Argentine National Observatory. It is signed by all members of the International Committee for Weights and Measures for Gould?s 70th birthday, with an original photograph of the Committee tipped in. The Committee was formed on May 20, 1875 when the Treaty of the Meter was signed by 17 countries. Gould received the Gold Medal of the Royal Astronomical Society in 1883 for his publication Uranometria Argentina (1879). The publication assigned Gould designations to all bright stars within 100 degrees of the south celestial pole in a manner similar to what Flamsteed had earlier done for the northern hemisphere. Born in Prussia to a Jewish family, Michelson moved to America at the age of two. He joined the U.S. Naval Academy in 1869, with a focus in optics, heat, and climatology. In 1907, Michelson was recognized for his work on measuring the speed of light, and for the Michelson - Morley experiment, which attempted to determine the velocity of matter, the results of which were used by Einstein to develop his theory of special relativity. As well as winning the Nobel Prize, Michelson was also awarded the Copley Medal, the Henry Draper Medal, and the Gold Medal of the Royal Astronomical Society. It is interesting to note that a crater in the moon is named after him.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      O. O. u. D.. 2 SS. 8vo.. "Ich bedaure sehr, Herr Friedlaender, Sie nicht gesehen zu haben. Kommen Sie doch, wo möglich morgen - Donnerstag - um 11 Uhr oder Freitag bis Mittag. In der Regel bin ich nur vormittags zu Hause [ ]. Ich habe Ihnen ohnlängst abermals geschrieben und Ihnen neue Eintrittskarten zu unserem Feste im Hotel de Ville zugeschickt, habe aber nochmals keine Antwort von Ihnen erhalten und zweifle ob Ihnen mein Brief zugekommen [ ]". - Mainzer studierte seit 1824 Theologie am Bischöflichen Priesterseminar in Trier und wurde 1827 zum Priester geweiht. Mit Unterstützung seines Bischofs konnte Mainzer seine musikalische Ausbildung auf Studienreisen fortsetzen und war nach seiner Rückkehr 1830 als Gesanglehrer am Bischöflichen Priesterseminar sowie am Lehrerseminar in Trier tätig. Wegen seiner Zugehörigkeit zu den sogenannten Reformgeistlichen wurde er 1832 vom geistlichen Amt suspendiert; Mainzer verließ die kath. Kirche und emigrierte nach Brüssel. Seit 1835 lebte er als Komponist, Musikkritiker und -pädagoge in Paris, ging 1841 nach London, dann nach Edinburgh und wurde 1844 mit einer musikwissenschaftlichen Arbeit promoviert. 1842 gründete er "Mainzers Musical Times", die heutige "Musical Times".

        Zur Kritik neuerer Geschichtsschreiber. Eine Beylage zu desselben romanischen und germanischen Geschichten. Leipzig & Berlin: G. Reimer, 1824.

      - First edition of the most influential work of the leading German historian of the nineteenth century. Printing and the Mind of Man 286. 'The typical features of Ranke's historiographical work were his concern for universality and his research into particular limited periods. In 1824 he produced his maiden work, the Geschichte der romanischen und germanischen Völker von 1494 bis 1514, which treats the struggle waged between the French and the Habsburgs for Italy as the phase that ushered in the new era. The appended treatise, Zur Kritik neuerer Geschichtsschreiber, in which he showed that the critical analysis of tradition is the historian's basic task, is the more important work. As a result of these publications, he was appointed associate professor in 1825 at the University of Berlin, where he taught as full professor from 1834 to 1871. Many of the students in his famous seminars were to become prominent historians, continuing his method of research and training in other universities. Zur Kritik neuerer Geschichtsschreiber established critical methods of historical scholarship that have since become normative. Ranke emphasized the acquisition of first-hand information and the tireless search for all relevant data, which he defined as "memoirs, diaries, letters, reports from embassies, and original narratives of eyewitnesses." He cited Guicciardini as an example of faulty historiographical practice, demonstrating that he invented the content of many reported speeches, that he could not have had any personal knowledge of many events about which he wrote, and that, even when he did have personal knowledge, he often copied from contemporary accounts' (Encyclopaedia Britannica). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 8vo, xii, 202 pp., contemporary half leather, spine gilt, just the smallest signs of wear to hinges, bookplate on pastedown, uncut, a fine copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Privater Lederband über vier (falschen) Bünden mit goldgeprägtem rotem Lederrückenschild.Zweiseitig unbeschnittener Schnitt. (21,4 x 14,4 cm) 8°.. - "Critical Modern History" (PMM 286), aus dem Besitz des Pazifisten und ehemaligen Generaldirektors des Schocken-Konzerns - PMM 286 ("Critical Modern History ... The preface to the 'Histories' contains the famous passage in which Ranke rejects the task historians had formerly assigned to themselves, of being the judges of the past and the teachers of their contemporaries; instead he proclaims as his aim 'merely to show how things actually were'. ..." Carter/ Muir (dt. Ausgabe von PMM: "Kritische moderne Geschichtsschreibung ... Ranke wandte als erster die kritischen Normen, die Niebuhr (267) für die alte Geschichte aufgestellt hatte, auf die mittelalterliche und neuere Geschichte an ..." Rankes zweite selbständige Veröffentlichung, die "Geschichten der romanischen und germanischen Völker" erschien im gleichen Jahr zuvor. Der wohl für den Sammler angefertigte Lederband mit leichten Alters- und Gebrauchsspuren, leicht berieben und bestoßen, stellenweise mit kleinen Fehlstellen, sowie etwas geworfen. Innen anfangs papierbedingt stellenweise leicht gebräunt. Georg Manasse (* 1893 - 1980 +) war ein deutscher Kaufmann, Unternehmer, Sozialdemokrat und Pazifist. Vergl. Jürgen Nitsche: "Georg Manasse. Schockens Generaldirektor. Unternehmer - Sozialdemokrat - Pazifist", Berlin 2013. "Als Generaldirektor gehörte Georg Manasse zu den engsten Vertrauten der Brüder Simon und Salman Schocken und war maßgeblich an der erfolgreichen Entwicklung des Warenhauskonzerns Schockens mit Sitz in Zwickau (Sachsen) beteiligt. Der überzeugte Sozialdemokrat und Pazifist trat frühzeitig der Deutschen Liga für Menschenrechte bei und spielte ab 1923 eine führende Rolle in Sachsen. Zu seinen engsten Freunden gehörten der Arzt Karl Eskuchen, Rabbiner Fritz Leopold Steinthal und die Geschwister Anna und Hans Siemsen. Er stand in Verbindung mit dem späteren sächsischen Ministerpräsidenten Max Seydewitz, Rabbiner Leo Baeck, dem Schriftsteller Joachim Ringelnatz, der Bildhauerin Renee Sintenis sowie dem Kunsthändler Hildebrand Gurlitt. Als Bürger der Stadt Zwickau engagierte er sich für die dort lebenden Juden und war als Vorstandsmitglied der Israelitischen Religionsgemeinde für Haushalts- und Steuerfragen zuständig. Im Sommer 1935 emigrierte er mit seiner Familie zunächst nach Schweden, bevor er Ende 1940 in den USA eine neue Heimat fand." (Klappentext) "Leopold von Ranke zählt zu den Klassikern der Geschichtsschreibung. [.] Angesichts seines historiographischen Riesenwerkes, das 54 Bände umfasst, zu denen noch die 9 Bände der Weltgeschichte kommen, gilt Ranke weithin als der ,größte deutsche Historiker', der mit enormer gestalterischer Kraft und großem darstellerischen Vermögen eine literarische Leistung höchsten Ranges vollbracht hat." Helmut Berding in: Hans-Ulrich Wehler (Hrsg.): Deutsche Historiker, Göttingen 1973, S. 7. "Wie kaum ein anderer Historiker der Neuzeit hat Rankes historiographisches Werk die Entwicklung der modernen wissenschaftlichen Geschichtsschreibung beeinflusst, weit über die nationalen Grenzen Deutschlands hinaus. Er nimmt bis heute einen festen, und unbestreitbar bedeutsamen Platz in der Geschichte der Geschichtsschreibung ein, und dies ganz unabhängig von der Frage, wie seine historiographische Position aus heutiger Sicht bewertet wird. Rankes methodologische Auffassungen stellen bis in unsere Gegenwart hinein einen Stein des Anstoßes dar, an dem sich die Geister scheiden. Für viele Historiker ist Leopold von Ranke bis heute ein klassisches Vorbild großer Geschichtsschreibung geblieben. Andere Historiker hingegen beurteilen den Einfluss seines Werks auf die moderne Geschichtswissenschaft eher kritisch." Wolfgang J. Mommsen in: ders.: Leopold von Ranke und die moderne Geschichtswissenschaft, Stuttgart 1988, S. 7. * Zahlung mit VISA/ MASTERCARD möglich. Versand mit Deutsche Post oder DHL. *

        Real life in London; or, the rambles and adventures of Bob Tallyho, Esq. and his cousin the Hon. Tom. Dashall, through the metropolis; exhibiting a living picture of fashionable characters, manners, and amusements in high and low life. By an amateur

      printed for Jones and Co., London 1824 - First edition, fifth issue, 2 volumes, 8vo, pp. x, [3]-656; [2], ix, [1], [3]-668; inserted hand-colored engraved title page and frontispiece in each volume, 28 hand-colored engravings, plus two extra hand-colored engravings not mentioned in the plate list and not in all copies; 20th century half red morocco over red cloth sides, gilt-lettered direct on gilt-paneled spine, t.e.g.; some occasional spotting of the text, but the plates are quite clean and vibrantly colored. Mixed issue plates, as usual ("many copies in modern bindings having been completed or made up of different issues" - Tooley). "From a bibliographical point of view, one of the most complicated and bewildering books ever published, rivalling Pickwick in the tangle of variant states that exist both in text and plates . A difficult feature of the book is that two printers, Bensley and Applegath, printed copies, textually the same page by page, with only minor variations in the settings, and this, coupled with the fact that during the eight or nine years it was being reprinted, makes the whole vast output 'first editions', but with innumerable states and variants that constantly overlap one with the other" (Abbey). This copy with the printer's slug of A. Applegath at the end of volume II. The work first appeared in 56 weekly, and 14 monthly parts, some on large paper, in 1821-22. The illustrations are by Heath, Alken, Dighton, Rowlandson, and others. Abbey, Life, 280; Tooley 200, to which this conforms exactly except for the presenceof the printer's imprint at the end of the second volume. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

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.

      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). Prominentester Nutzer der Auflage war Goethe, der seinen "Hübner" durch den Brockhaus ersetzte. Das betreffende Exemplar kann noch heute in Goethes Haus am Weimarer "Frauenplan" besichtigt werden. 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. Rosen, Bentham, Byron and Greece (1992): and W. St. Clair, That Greece might still be free (1971).8vo., hand-coloured frontispiece portrait of Mustapha Ali, 6 facsimiles of documents (5 folding and one double-page), xiii + (3) + 368pp., contemporary calf, neatly rebacked and labelled to match, gilt lines and lettering, tips of boards worn, mid-19th century armorial bookplate of Anne Elinor Prevost.
