        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. Das Blatt oben rechts recto alt in Rötelstift numeriert "3". Mittig quer gefaltet.

        Bibliotheca Meermanniana, sive catalogus librorum impressorum et codicum manuscriptorum. SALE CATALOGUE (date of sale: 8 June 1824 and following). BOUND WITH: Prix des livres de la Bibliotheque Meermanienne, venue a La Haye

      The Hague: S. & J. Luchtmans, Van Cleef Bros., and B. Scheurleer, 1824. VERY GOOD. 5 vols. in 2, COMPLETE: 6 ff., 378 pp.; half-title, 210 pp.; 4 ff., 217, 221 pp. (without blank leaf), 2 ff., 182 pp. (MSS), 1 f. - PRIX DES LIVRES. 8, 186 pp. Recent half calf antique over marbled boards, red morocco spine labels, sprinkled edges. 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).

        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.

        Bibliotheca Meermanniana, sive catalogus librorum impressorum et codicum manuscriptorum. SALE CATALOGUE (date of sale: 8 June 1824 and following). BOUND WITH: Prix des livres de la Bibliotheque Meermanienne, venue a La Haye

      The Hague: S. & J. Luchtmans, Van Cleef Bros., and B. Scheurleer, 1824. VERY GOOD. 5 vols. in 2, COMPLETE: 6 ff., 378 pp.; half-title, 210 pp.; 4 ff., 217, 221 pp. (without blank leaf), 2 ff., 182 pp. (MSS), 1 f. - PRIX DES LIVRES. 8, 186 pp. Recent half calf antique over marbled boards, red morocco spine labels, sprinkled edges. 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.

        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."

        WANTED, NOT UNTIL MARCH 4th, 1825, AN HONEST, INTELLIGENT AND FAITHFUL MAN SERVANT, TO SERVE THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES, AS THEIR PRESIDENT...[first line of text]

      [Np. 1824].. Broadside, 11 x 9 inches. Old fold lines. A few small stains. Very good. A scarce and intriguing campaign broadside from the 1824 presidential election presented in the form of a "help wanted" ad, naming no specific candidate, but calling for an honest man to be a servant to the people, uncorrupted and incorruptible. The broadside repeatedly calls for representation of the common man over political cronies, support of American goods and interest over foreign concerns, and plain honest speech over flattery and rhetoric. In a cry that hearkens down through the years to the present day, it states: "Above all things he must be a Republican in deed and in truth: one who will acknowledge and found his practice upon the broad principles which are the foundation of the federal constitution, who will remember that Government was instituted for the common good, and not for the interest or agrandizement [sic] of a few at the expense of the many: who will keep an eye over the State Treasury and see that the expenses of the American family do not exceed their income; one, in short, who is not too proud to acknowledge that he is no more than the first servant of the people, and will neither be ashamed or afraid to do their will and attend to their interests in preference to those of all the Intriguers, Courtiers and Flatterers on earth." In the election of 1824, none of the four candidates running for office - Andrew Jackson, John Quincy Adams, William H. Crawford, and Henry Clay - secured a majority of electoral votes, and the decision was thrown into the House of Representatives. Henry Clay, who was one of the candidates, was compelled to cast the deciding ballot by virtue of being House Speaker. He chose John Quincy Adams over Andrew Jackson, and much controversy ensued over an alleged "corrupt bargain" between Clay and Adams, with Adams naming Clay as his Secretary of State. Jackson would win the 1828 election against the incumbent Adams, partially as a backlash from the election of 1824. Only three copies in OCLC, at Brown University, the Huntington, and the New- York Historical Society. OCLC 54042567, 58786287, 228709189.

      1824. SHAKESPEARE PORTRAITS. An Inquiry into the Authenticity of Various Pictures and Prints which from the Decease of the Poet to Our Own Times have been offered to the Public as Portraits of Shakespeare.

London: Robert Triphook, 1824. |~||~||~||~||~| A Special, Extra-Illustrated Copy printed on Large Paper. Contained herein are rare India proofs of several plates, and nearly thirty portraits not called for in the original Boaden publication, which was issued in octavo format with 5 portraits. Boaden's book offers a careful examination of the evidence regarding the authenticity of various Shakespeare portraits; outlining the reasons why some are to be rejected and confirming why others are genuine. A rare photograph ca. 1862 appears on the specimen facsimile leaf of the first folio title from Lionel Booth's reprint edition. At the bottom of this facsimile leaf appears the following: "The photograph above is only inserted pro temp.; its place will be supplied by an Engraving, as much like the original by Droeshout as present art can effect."

      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".

        3 autograph letters signed to William Rathbone

      1824-1830. Buckingham, James Silk (1786-1855). Three autograph letters signed to William Rathbone (1787-1868). 10pp. total. London, Feb. 9, 1824; Dec. 22, 1828; and Dec. 14, 1830. Approx. 250 x 210 mm. Small lacuna in one letter where seal was broken (not affecting text), but very good. James Silk Buckingham, a British travel writer and social reformer, first came into public notice when he founded a newspaper in Calcutta and began publishing articles critical of the colonial government; this led to the government seizing Buckingham?'s newspaper and expelling him from the country in 1823. On his return to England he established several newspapers devoted to politics and to news about Britain?'s Eastern colonies, the most successful of these being the ?"Oriental Herald.?" After serving four years in Parliament, Buckingham left politics and traveled widely in the United States and Europe, publishing several books on his travels and establishing a career as a public lecturer. He was deeply interested in social reform, serving as president of the London Temperance League and developing a plan for the construction of model towns, which he described in his best-known work, National Evils and Practical Remedies (1849). Although never realized, Buckingham?'s model town plan influenced the ideas of Ebenezer Howard, founder of the Garden City movement. The three letters we are offering here were all written to William Rathbone, member of a wealthy and prominent Liverpool family of merchants long associated with philanthropy and public service. Like Buckingham, Rathbone was interested in social reform, and Buckingham relied on Rathbone?'s influence and financial support in promoting his newspapers, lectures and other ventures. In his letter of Feb. 9, 1824 Buckingham informs Rathbone of his plan to found a daily newspaper called ?"The Evening Chronicle,?" hoping that Rathbone would see fit to recommend it ?"to the principal Public Institutions at Liverpool, of which there must be so many to which a good London Evening Paper would be acceptable.?" In the Dec. 22, 1828 letter Buckingham describes his plan to give a series of lectures in Liverpool to promote free trade to China and India, and asks for Rathbone?'s help in publicizing the lectures and securing a suitable venue. In his letter of Dec. 14, 1830 Buckingham discusses another upcoming lecture tour ?"on the Countries of the East?" and ?"the India Question,?" which he proposed to begin in Liverpool ?"as the wealthiest, & most public spirited, and therefore the best to set an example.?"

        Their Majesties King Rheo Rhio, Queen Tamehamalu, Madame Poki, of the Sandwich Islands and suite as they appeared at the Theatre Drury Lane, June 4th 1824

      London, 1824. Lithograph, 280 x 230mm., title caption, fine. Hawaiian Royalty at the opera. The Hawaiian royal family at the theatre, Drury Lane. The visit to England of the Hawaiian King and his young wife attracted much popular attention. Sadly, a month after their visit to the New Theatre Royal in Drury Lane, both contracted measles, and the twenty-two year old Queen, Kamamalu (transcribed as Tamehamulu at the time) died on 8 July, 1824. The King succumbed shortly afterwards.Only weeks before, King George IV had commanded that the Royal Box should be made available for their visit to the theatre, and the publicity handbills trumpeted the occasion. At the reception attended by 'upwards of 200 persons of first rank and fashion' held for them in May, it was recorded that 'His Majesty was dressed after the European fashion, but the Queen's attire was partly European, and partly in native costume. The Treasurer also was dressed in the full costume of his country.' (The Times, 31 May, 1824). On 31 May 'Their sable Majesties', with their suite, occupied the King's Box at the Theatre Royal in Covent Garden'. His Majesty, 'as regards appearance, need hardly give way to any potentate in Europe... Her Majesty the Queen is taller than her Royal spouse: but of good figure, and with a countenance by no means devoid of expression.' (The Times, 1 June, 1824). The following Friday, 4 June, the Royal Party attended the New Theatre Royal Drury Lane, where they watched the opera Rob Roy Macgregor, and Zoroaster, 'A New Grand Egyptian Tale of Enchantment'.By 8 July the Queen was dead, and the King was dying; her coffin lay in state and bore a large brass plaque upon which was engraved in Hawaiian, and in English: TAMEHAMALU Queen of the Sandwich Islands Departed this life in London, on the 8th July 1824 Aged 22 years (The Times, 13 July, 1824). The bodies of the royal pair were carried back to Hawaii on HMS Blonde in 1825.

The three letters we are offering here were all written to William Rathbone, member of a wealthy and prominent Liverpool family of merchants long associated with philanthropy and public service. Like Buckingham, Rathbone was interested in social reform, and Buckingham relied on Rathbone&#146;s influence and financial support in promoting his newspapers, lectures and other ventures. In his letter of Feb. 9, 1824 Buckingham informs Rathbone of his plan to found a daily newspaper called &#147;The Evening Chronicle,&#148; hoping that Rathbone would see fit to recommend it &#147;to the principal Public Institutions at Liverpool, of which there must be so many to which a good London Evening Paper would be acceptable.&#148; In the Dec. 22, 1828 letter Buckingham describes his plan to give a series of lectures in Liverpool to promote free trade to China and India, and asks for Rathbone&#146;s help in publicizing the lectures and securing a suitable venue. In his letter of Dec. 14, 1830 Buckingham discusses another upcoming lecture tour &#147;on the Countries of the East&#148; and &#147;the India Question,&#148; which he proposed to begin in Liverpool &#147;as the wealthiest, & most public spirited, and therefore the best to set an example.&#148;
