        Rosa Gallica caerulea. Rosier de Provins à feuilles bleuâtres

      Firmin Didot], [Paris 1824 - Stipple engraving printed in black, on ochre-tinted paper, by Eug. Talbaux, after Redouté, printed by Rémond. Very good condition. A very rare uncoloured 'connoisseur's' impression on ochre-tinted paper from the first edition of 'Les Roses': Redouté's most famous work, and perhaps the most celebrated flower book of all time The present uncoloured plate was printed on ochre paper as it was realized that this gave a pleasing effect. The ochre background enhances the subtle gradations of tone achieved using the stipple engraving technique and gives a unique opportunity to appreciate the unrivalled artistry of both Pierre-Joseph Redouté himself and the master-craftsman he employed to translate his watercolour into a print of the highest quality. Redouté learned, whilst on a visit to London, that the most successful impressions of stipple engravings came from well-used plates. A number of black plates would thus be struck to take the edge off the plate before printing in colours. Redouté's printers struck black impressions - always on a paper with a distinct ochre tint - from the plates, and these early impressions were then combined with later colour-printed examples to form the de luxe issues of 'Les Roses'. Redouté's 'Les Roses' was issued in four formats: a large paper folio with coloured plates, a large paper folio with the plates in two states, folio with coloured plates, and folio with the plates in two states (the present plate comes from this final de luxe form). Gavin Bridson and Donald Wendel, in their magisterial 'Printmaking in the service of botany' catalogue (Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation, 1986, item 25) noted that Redouté 'For the interest of connoisseurs' included `a set of black plates as a parallel series to the usual color-printed versions' in 'special issues' of both the present work and his earlier 'Les Liliacées'. The number of these special issues that were produced is unfortunately not recorded but to judge from auction records over the past twenty-five years they are extremely rare: only four complete sets of 'Les Roses' in this format are recorded. The present print therefore comes from an edition that was severely limited, and is certainly much rarer than its colour-printed equivalent. Cf. Cleveland Collections 807; cf. Dunthorne 232; cf. Hunt Redoutéana 19; cf. Hunt, Printmaking in the Service of Botany 25; cf. Nissen BBI 1599; cf. Pritzel 7455; cf. Ray French 89; cf. Stafleu and Cowan 8748. [Attributes: First Edition]

The Witch of Atlas [written in August, 1820, in three days following a lonely excursion to the Monte San Pellegrino. ]Letter to- [Mrs. Gisbourne]. The Triumph of Life [Shelley?s latest composition, left unfinished]. Fragments from an Unfinished Drama. Prince Athanase. Ode to Naples. Marianne?s Dream [ previously published in The Literary Pocket-Book, edited by Leigh Hunt, 1819]. Mont Blanc [previously published in History of a Six Weeks? Tour, 1817]. Miscellaneous Poems[fifty-nine poems]. Fragments [numbering nie, including Charles the First and Prince Athanase, Pt, II]. Alastor, or The Spirit of Solitude [ first published in 1816]. Translations [numbering five]. It was with difficulty that a publisher was found for the book, the sale of two hundred and fifty copies being guaranteed by Thomas Lovell Beddoes, Bryan Waller Proctor (?Barry Cornwall?) and Thomas Forbes Felsall. The original intentions to include certain prose pieces was abandoned on account of the size of the volume. (GRANNIS, 80) Mary Shelley?s campaign to make the world appreciate Percy Shelley?s genius and personal virtues was astutely planned. She decided to publish first his posthumous poems, then his prose. Some private verses she did not consider including, and she omitted his polemic poems - though she circulated them privately - in order to show ?how he could write without shocking people, ? after which the public would be receptive to his complete works. In this decision she also deferred to John Hunt, recently imprisoned for an Examiner attack on Parliament and soon to be fined for publishing Byron?s ?Vision of Judgement. ?The Posthumous Poems of Percy Shelley were published in June 1824 and included sixty-five unpublished poems, thirteen out of print, and five translations. Mary Shelley?s preface went straight to the point of Shelley?s ill repute: ?his fearless enthusiasm in the cause which he considered the most sacred upon earth, the improvement of the moral and physical state of mankind, was the chief cause why he, like other illustrious reformers, was pursued by hatred and calumny. ? Ignoring his controversial private life, she extolled his virtues and gifts, and described her terrible vigil at Lerici. Posthumous Poems accomplished what Mary Shelley intended: before it, Shelley?s immorality, destructiveness, and incomprehensibility where legend, and he was largely unread; upon its publication there was a surge of interest a he seemed at once more accessible and admirable. Moreover though she has been charged with initiating the legend of the ethereal Shelley, that legend evolved out of his projection of himself and a cultural shift from the Byronic ideal to oneof pre-Victorian evangelism, dedication, and earnestness. Besides he grew to be a hero to radicals as well. On July 23 Mary was shocked to learn that Sir Timothy Shelley was infuriated by Posthumous Poems and would terminate her allowance unless she withdrew it from circulation, stopped publication of the prose, and moreover promised not to publish anything by our about Shelley during his own lifetime. Three hundred copies of the poem and been sold, about tenfold more than any of the poems published in Shelley?s lifetime. , and the projected prose volume was slim. After urgent consultations with Peacock, who negotiated with with Whitton, she capitulated to Sir Timothy. (SUNSTEIN,248, 257, 260); 415 pages

        POSTHUMOUS POEMS

      London: Printed for John and Henry L. Hunt, 1824. FIRST EDITION, First Issue (without the errata leaf found in later issue copies) n. Hardcover. 213 x 159 mm (8 3/8 x 6 1/4"). xi, [i], 415, [1] pp. Edited by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley. FIRST EDITION, First Issue (without the errata leaf found in later issue copies). LOVELY CRIMSON CRUSHED MOROCCO, ELABORATELY GILT AND INLAID, BY ZAEHNSDORF (signed on front turn-in, and with the firm's exhibition stamp on rear pastedown), covers gilt with single fillet border around a floral bower, a climbing vine at each side proliferating and entwined at head to enclose an inlaid ivory morocco rose in each corner, bottom of covers with four large leaves on stems emanating from a stippled field and with an elegant inlaid ivory morocco lily rising up toward the middle of the central panel; raised bands, spine gilt in compartments featuring a foliate stem rising from foot to head and an inlaid ivory rose in center compartment, wide gilt turn-ins with foliate tools and decorative roll, red silk pastedowns and endleaves, all edges gilt (the joints invisibly renewed). In a (slightly faded and rubbed) protective buckram chemise and red cloth slipcase with morocco lip. Front pastedown with the morocco bookplate of Paul Edward Chevalier and that of Clara and Irwin Strasburger. Granniss 78; Wise, p. 70; Ashley Library V, 88. Isolated faint printer's fingerprints, a tiny bit of fraying to silk endleaves, but an extremely attractive copy of a beautifully bound book, the binding lustrous, with virtually undetectable expert restoration, and the text fresh and bright. With an elegant Art Nouveau design and with illustrious provenance, this is a significant poetical publication in an extremely appealing binding. These poems by Shelley were gathered from his manuscripts after his death and published by his wife Mary. Among the most notable longer poems is "Julian and Maddalo," set in Venice, in which the two characters--one an optimist, the other a pessimist--are said to represent Shelley and Byron. Also here are one of Shelley's most colorful and imaginative works, "The Witch of Atlas" (which depicts a beneficent but sometimes impish sorceress), and "The Triumph of Life," left incomplete by the poet's death but nevertheless considered one of his most profound poems. Inspired by Petrarch's "Trionfi," the latter poem depicts a parade of worthies as diverse as Plato and Napoleon, interpreted by the poet's guide, Rousseau, who also details the story of his own life. The present item has an illustrious provenance: it comes from the collection of 20th century English bindings put together by Paul Chevalier, whose library of beautiful volumes was uniformly characterized by outstanding workmanship and superb condition. The sale of his books at Christie's in 1990 represented one of the best collections of British bindings brought to auction in the past half century (this was lot #120, which sold for a hammer price of $2,200).

        ALS - Eigenhändiger Brief mit Unterschrift.

      - Berlin 27.XII. 1824, 28.III. und 29.IV.1825. 4 Seiten gr.°, in kleiner Schrift eng beschrieben. Eilhard Mitscherlich (1794-1863), Chemiker, Entdecker des Isomorphismus. - Bedeutender, zweimal nach Unterbrechungen wieder aufgenommener Brief an einen Kollegen in Edinburgh (Sir David Brewster ?), u.a. über seine Untersuchungen des Schwefels (dessen Modifikationen er entdeckte) und seine Versuche zur Kupferschmelze und der Geschützgießerei. Erwähnt werden neben Anderen Arago, Berzelius, A. v. Humboldt, Magnus, Rose und Th. Thomson. - Im Jahre 1824 besuchte er Humprey Davy, Faraday, Wollaston, and Dalton in England, wo er einige Fabriken besuchte. - Der Brief beginnt mit einer Reminiszenz an seinen Aufenthalt in Edinburgh im Jahre 1824. "Me voilà dans un grand embarrase en vous adressant, mon bon ami, ma premiere lettre après notre voyage ; je desire si vivement de me soutenir dans votre amitié, dans la bonne opinion, que vous avez eue de moi, que je ne sais pas en effet, comment je peux vous exprimer assez, combien je suis sensible pour tout ce que vous avez fait pour moi pendant notre voyage et notre séjour à Edinbourg ." Nach einer Schilderung seiner beschwerlichen Rückreise (Lüttich, Kassel und Göttingen werden als Reisestationen erwähnt) kommt er auf seine Vorschungsvorhaben zu sprechen: - "Je viens de terminer les analyses des sulfures, dont je vous ai parlé; et je serai bientôt en état de publier le mémoire que vous vouliez bien prendre sous votre protection amicale. Je commencerai après l'analyse des fontes, ce travail, auquel j'ai été forcé par le Ministre de la Guerre m'était au commencement très désagréable, mais j'en suis maintenant très content; on m'a donné des echantillons des canons que l'on a essayé par des tirages; on a fait des canons avec de la fonte, provenant des charbons de bois et de cooks; des essais preliminaires m'ont donné dans toutes les fontes, provenant des cooks und quantité moindre de carbone et une quantité considérable de silicium; qui n'existe pas du tout ou seulement en petite quantité dans la fonte provenant des charbons de bois; j'ai en même tems analysé le fine-métal qui, d'après mes essais preliminaires contient encore un peu plus de carbon, que la fonte employée, mais ne contient plus de silicium ." - Nach einer dreimonatigen, durch sein rheumatisches Leiden verursachten Unterbrechnung nimmt er den Brief wieder auf mit der Nachricht, dass Berzelius seinen Besuch für den Sommer angekündigt habe; wie es um die Pläne einer gemeinsamen Schlesien-Reise stehe, könne er noch nicht sagen. - ". Nous venons de recevoir des nouvelles de Mr. Berzelius, je ne sais pas, presqu'à quel point notre voyage projecté en Silesie s'executera, mai il parait très certain, que Mr. Berzelius viendra nous voir au commencement d'Aout. Mr. Hisinger et le comte de Wachtmeister, le même, qui a fait des recherches des grénats . l'accompagneront . je desirerai bien vivement de vous voir ici pendant la présence de Mr. Berzelius; il pourrait contribuer à vous dedommager un peu des fatigues d'un grand voyage . - Ma santé est entièrement retablie, même mon mal de nerfs a considerablement diminué; mon humeur triste cependant ne me quitte pas; il a été surtout très-nourri pendant les dernieres mois, dans les quels des travaux très desagréables m'ont empêcher de toute recherche scientifique, que j'ai pu maintenant recommencer. J'ai bâti un assez grand fourneau à flammes, dans lequel je peux fondre deux quintaux de cuivre à la fois; j'ai fait le pont avec des trous, de manière que je peux regler l'oxidation et la desoxidation à volonté, je l'ai mis dans mon laboratoire, où il n'occupe que fort peu de place . - Mr. Magnus a fini son travail sur les pyrophores; il a trouvé que tous les corps, qui ont une affinité assez grande pour l'oxigène . s'enflamment exposés à l'air, p.e. la poudre de fer . on obtient les corps dans un tel état en reduirant les oxides des metaux, qui ne se fondent qu'à une haute .

        Trarbach mit der Ruine Gräfenburg an der Mosel.

      1824 - Lithographie von A. Borum nach D. Quaglio bei J. Lacroix, um 1824, koloriert. Ca. 42 x 49 cm. Papier etwas gebräunt, vor allem im Randbereich. Oberer Rand etwas knittrig. Winzige Beschädigung in der untersten Titelzeile. Nicht bei Winkler, Frühzeit der deutschen Lithographie. Sehr dekorative und detailreiche Ansicht von Trarbach nach einer Vorlage Quaglio aus dem Jahre 1823. Beherrscht wird der Ort durch die evangelische Pfarrkirche (ehem. St. Nikolaus), deren gotische Maßwerkfenster und das Portal bis in die Einzelheiten genau dargestellt sind. Daneben die ehemalige Lateinschule mit dem Ausblick auf die Grevenburg. Die Häuser, teilweise aus Fachwerk, säumen die Straße, auf der Fußgänger und eine kleine Ziegenherde dargestellt sind. Links ein dreigeschossiges Fachwerkhaus mit einem herausragenden, schmiedeeisernen Davidstern. In der Bildmitte ein großes Haus mit Fachwerk, mehreren Erkern und einer Marienmalerei an der Fassade. Rechts im Vordergrund ist ein kleiner Bach (Kautenbach?) dargestellt, über den zwei Stege führen. Im Hintergrund erhebt sich ein Felsen, auf dem sich die Ruine der Gräfenburg befindet. Unterhalb der Darstellung links der Vermerk "Gemalt v. Dominicus Quaglio.", in der Mitte "Gedr. v. Jos. Lacroix." und rechts "Auf Stein gez. v. Andreas Borum." Frühe Lithographie dieser Szene nach Quaglio, noch ohne die später hinzugefügte Reiterfigur im Vordergrund. Vermutlich handelt es sich bei dem vorliegenden Blatt um die erste Lithographie nach der Zeichnung von Quaglio. Winkler, Frühzeit der deutschen Lithographie, kennt nur die Ausgabe bei Velten in Carlsruhe (640,68). Joseph Lacroix, lithographischer Zeichner und Drucker, arbeitete 1822-24 in München (Winkler 456). Dieser Druck bei Lacroix ist Winkler unbekannt geblieben und in der Literatur bisher nicht beschrieben. Papier etwas gebräunt, vor allem im Randbereich. Oberer Rand etwas knittrig. Winzige Beschädigung in der untersten Titelzeile.
