        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.

      Harding, Triphook, and Lepard, London 1824 - 1824-1827. The First Series was published in 1824 and the Second Series in 1827. These two series have here been uniformly bound together as a 7 volume set. There was a later Third Series published in 1846. Both sets are first editions.

All edges and endpapers marbled. All volumes contain their original silk ribbon page markers, some now detached. Corners rubbed, with boards exposed at corner tips. This is an important complication of early English documents including letters by Cromwell, Wolsey, Richard III, Thomas More, Henry VI, Tudor monarchs, Charles I and many more. pp. First Series: xviii, 310, [frontis.]; xiv, 308 [frontis. extending facsimile]; xviii, 399.

      Magazins für Kunst, Geographie & Muzik, Berlin 1824 - Berlin: Magazins für Kunst, Geographie & Muzik, 1824. Copper engraved large folding map, borders outlined in colour, dissected and linen backed, ca. 91,5x125 cm (30x49 in). Scale: 1/1,000,000. Engraved by Carl Mare. Housed in the original marbled papered slipcase. Overall a very good map. Special post map of the Kingdom of Prussia showing the territory of central Europe (Germany and parts of Denmark, Netherlands, Belgium, France, Luxembourg, Austrian Empire, and Poland). The map marks post offices and stations (with distances between them) and different lines of post communication (urgent, carriage, by boat et al.) of Prussia, Austria, Kingdom of Bavaria, Duchy of Baden and the Netherlands. The large title cartouche features the Royal Prussian crowned eagle with sceptre and orb. This edition was authorised by the head of the Prussian Royal General Post Office Karl von Nagler (1770-1846). An early work by a noted German geographer and cartographer Heinrich Berghaus, a teacher of August Petermann and Heinrich Lange. Berghaus is mostly known for his Physikalischer Atlas (Gotha, 1838-1848), revised and improved edition of the Stieler's Handatlas and numerous written works. The island in Franz Josef Land known as Ostrov Bergkhauz was named after him. Not in Engelmann (he marks only later correcter edition of Schropp & Comp., issued in 1839, see p. 796).

        Touch at the Fine Arts, A

      , 1824. 1824. Artists Jargon Satirically DefinedRare In Original BoardsALKEN, Henry. A Touch at the Fine Arts. Illustrated by Twelve Plates, with Descriptions by Henry Alken. London: Published by Thomas M’Lean, Repository of Wit and Humour, 1824. First edition. Quarto (10 3/4 x 7 1/2 inches; 273 x 190 mm.). [28] pp. Twelve hand-colored soft-ground etchings. Each plate with a leaf of descriptive letterpress. With the half-title and the leaf of advertisements present.Original quarter crimson roan over drab boards with printed pink title laid on. Some expected corner-wear and rubbing and soiling to boards. Early repairs to spine head and foot, otherwise and internally clean and excellent copy.“A Touch at the Fine Arts…is, according to the preface, ‘an attempt to elucidate, by graphic delineations, a variety of terms generally and perhaps exclusively made use of by artists, amateurs, connoisseurs, virtuosos, and the like. Long, indeed, has a generous public been, doubtless, puzzled in the endeavour to discover some ray of meaning in those glowing, brilliant and forcible phrases, which the critical catalogues, Catalogues Raisonnées, etc., of the day are woefully burthened with.’ It is a cheap kind of humour at the best. To take two of the most deserving subjects—‘A Moving Effect; the Execution rapid,’ is represented by a runaway coach, with expressions of the utmost horror in the faces and attitudes of the occupants; ‘A Striking Effect, the handling by no means good or pleasant to the eye,’ is illustrated by a fracas between two returning roisterers and some night-watchmen. In these and in plate 2, a prison-scene depicting ‘An unpleasant effect, but the Keeping is Good,’ Alken shows genuine power as a draughtsman, and infuses his work with a character lacking elsewhere. The last plate, indeed, might almost be a coloured lithograph from the hand of Daumier. All twelve plates, it should be said, are soft-ground etchings, with colour applied by hand” (Martin Hardie).The Plates:1. —An Imposing Effect 2. Unpleasant in Effect—but the keeping is Good3. A Moving Effect—the Execution Rapid4. A Striking Effect—The handling by no means good, or pleasnat to the eye5. All Effect—The Subject far from good, but Rich6. A Forcible Effect7. A Sudden Effect8. A surprising Effect—but no Execution9. A Very Warm Effect10. A powerful Effect—but the subject rather hurried11. A Spirited Effect—but no order kept in the grouping of the Figures12. A very Brilliant EffectMartin Hardie, pp. 183-184 and 319. Siltzer, p. 71. Tooley 58. Not in Abbey.

        "Idee zu einem Kupfer vor dem Volksschulliederbuch". Eigenhändiges Manuskript mit U. ("Hoppenstedt").

      Wohl Hannover, vor 1824.. 2 SS. 4to.. Wohl für den Verleger seines erstmals 1793 in Hannover erschienenen Buches "Lieder für Volksschulen" bestimmt, das bis 1823 vier weitere Auflagen erlebte. Interessante und umfangreiche Beschreibung einer ihm vorschwebenden Kupfertafel vor dem Liederbuch, aus der Hoppenstedts Persönlichkeit und sein pädagogisches Weltbild erkennbar werden. "Ein Schullehrer, in einfacher Tracht [...] sitzt unter einem Baum, mit einer Flöte, einigen Noten u. dergl. in der Hand. Ein Haufen Knaben, groß u. klein, sitzt zu seiner Linken, - ein gleicher Haufe Mädchen zu s. Rechten; u. diese alle sieht man frö[h]lich und in ungekünstelten Stellungen singen. Andre Kinder stehn schön gruppi[e]rt aufhorchend umher, - doch so, daß jedes Geschlecht für sich bleibt. Alle arbeiten, auch die Singenden. Theils stricken, theils nähen sie, - u. auch die Knaben stricken [...]". - Nach zahlreichen weiteren Details merkt Hoppenstedt an: "Ich darf wohl nicht hinzufügen, daß ich sehr natürlich mich gern bescheide, Manches auf einer einzigen Platte Unausführbare gesagt zu haben. Indeß wollte ich hiedurch auch nur meinen Wunsch zu erkennen geben [...]". - Die 5 Auflagen, die bis 1823 erschienen, enthielten, so weit wir feststellen konnten, keine solche Kupfertafel. Über Hoppenstedts sonstige Lehr- und Kinderbücher vgl. Goedeke VII 325, 25. - Sehr selten.

Zum offiziellen Maler der Kaiserin Josephine ernannt, beauftrage sie ihn mit den Illustrationen des von ihr geplanten Werkes über die Blumen und Pflanzen ihres Gartens von Schloss Malmaison. Um 1810 hatte sie in diesem Garten eine Vielzahl Rosensorten zusammengetragen, die von Redouté in dem berühmten Werk "Les Roses" verzeichnet sind. Seine Rosendarstellungen in ihren zarten Farbtönen sind von bestechendem Reiz.

        Memoria que el Ministro Secretario de Hacienda presenta al Congreso de la Republica de Chile. Diciembre de 1824.

      Santiago de Chile, Imprenta Nacional, December 1824. - 14 pp., (2 ll.). 4°, disbound. A few light stains, but overall in good to very good condition. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION. Benavente opens this bitter report to the Chilean Congress on the state of government finances by stating that there is nothing satisfactory to report and that Congress's instructions to him were either impossible to fulfill or ridiculous. He complains that his attempts to solve the financial crisis have not been appreciated: "Nunca se valoriza justamente lo que ha hecho un Gobierno; pero siempre se critica acervamente lo que ha dejado de hacer" (p. 9). In the course of the discussion he mentions the expedition to Chiloé (whose capture in 1826 marked the end of the struggle for Chilean independence), the state of the Chilean navy, the suppression of an Indian rebellion in the south (pp. 8-9), and the monopoly on tobacco and other goods held by Portales, Céa y Compañia. Scattered throughout are facts and figures, e.g., the revenue produced under Spanish rule by tobacco sales.Having supported José Miguel Carrera in the War of Independence, Benavente (1790-1867) fled to Buenos Aires while O'Higgins was in power. From 1823-1825, under Ramón Freire, he served as minister of Finance, but his support of the Portales, Céa y Compañía monopoly made him unpopular. In the 1830s he opposed Portales. From 1834 to 1861 he was elected senator nine times.---- Briseño I, 200. OCLC: 79398599 (John Carter Brown Library). Not located in CCPBE. Not located in Rebiun. Not located in Copac.

Previous owner's small bookplate on front pastedown of both volumes. Overall a very good set. "In 1823, about half a century before Velasco published his inaugural translation, we find an article that highlights the need for a 'poetic translation' of Shakespeare's works. The author of the article was Joseph Blanco White, priest, journalist, political and religious thinker, literary critic, and translator. He was born in Seville, in 1775. At that time, his name was José Maria Blanco. His paternal grandfather, William White, had come to Spain from Ireland in the early 18th century to run a mercantile house, and, at some point, the family name was changed to 'Blanco' (Spanish for 'White'). José María had a strict Catholic formation, but, profoundly disappointed with the Church and with Spanish politics, he moved to London in 1810, he converted to Protestantism and he changed his name to Joseph Blanco White. He kept both the Spanish and the English versions of his name side by side, and this doubling reflects an awareness of the double context in which he was writing. He becomes deeply interested in British literature, particularly in the new Romantic ideas, but he never lost sight of the situation in Spain He was concerned with the relations between the Peninsula and its Spanish-American colonies, and he enthusiastically wrote in support of the colonies' autonomy from the Central Council at Seville. In fact, he published his proposal for translating Shakespeare poetically in the quarterly Variedades o Mensagero de Londres, a journal he edited for the London printing house of Rudolph Ackermann but which was addressed to Spanish-American readers. This context is important for understanding Blanco White's theoretical stance. His contact with Romanticism, for instance, gave him tools to defend Shakespeare against the attacks of French and Spanish neoclassicists. He explains that a 'poetic translation' has the benefit of conveying the general 'tone of thought' and the transcendent 'originality of Shakespeare's genius'- even when it cannot reproduce his 'particular beauties' which, for Blanco White, are inseparable from the language in which they were written. But the proposal to translate Shakespeare's works as poetry- by which he meant lyric poetry-has other implicit benefits: it displaces the focus away from the terrain of the theatre and from the standards of unity and decorum that were the stronghold of neoclassicism. Indeed, he explicitly argues that Shakespeare's genius stands apart from the 'frenzies' of the theatre of his time." (The Oxford Handbook of Shakespeare Poetry Pg 696-697).
