        Trarbach mit der Ruine Gräfenburg an der Mosel.

      - 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.

        Vingt-Quatre Heures d'une Femme Sensible, ou Une Grande Leçon

      Paris Arthus Bertrand 1824 - Octavo. Contemporary quarter black skiver, blue boards, spine gilt in compartments. Engraved frontispiece. 1 leaf of publisher's ads at rear. Spine rolled, binding rubbed, spotting and toning of contents, primarily in the margins. A very good copy. First edition, first impression. Author Constance de Salm (1767-1845) was a highly regarded French writer and moral philosopher, and an important member of a circle of leading intellectuals and scientists. Though forgotten for much of the 19th and 20th centuries, she is now the subject of renewed academic interest, providing a window onto the lives and intellectual networks of women in Revolutionary and Napoleonic France. De Salm spent most of her life promoting the equality of women, and her most important work, the poem Épître aux femmes (1797), was a direct attack on the language and social structures that uphold patriarchy, as well as an exhortation to women to liberate themselves. During her career "she used a variety of genres to address issues of importance to women, such as equal access to educational opportunities and to family courts, recognition of intellectual achievement, the infantilization of women and the denigration of their abilities, the cost to women's health of reproduction, and adequately renumerated work for poor, widowed, and single women. In many ways she can be usefully compared to Mary Wollstonecraft." (Hine, Constance de Salm, p. 4). De Salm's friendships with scientists were an important part of her intellectual life. She was close to the astronomer Joseph-Jérome Lalande, who left her his unpublished manuscripts and asked her to write his eulogy. "Not only did she know Lalande well enough to have him entrust her with securing his legacy, but she was acquainted with renowned scientists like the natural philosopher Auguste de Candolle, the botany professor at the Jardin du Roi, Antoine de Jussieu, the naturalist Alexander von Humboldt. all of whom were among her circle of friends and frequented her salon. Her involvement can be used to illustrate the shift from earlier philosophical debates among scientists to the increasing interest on the part of women in scientific culture in the latter part of the eighteenth and the early part of the nineteenth centuries " (Hine pp. 2-3). The present text, Twenty-Four Hours in the Life of a Sensitive Woman, is an epistolary novel exploring the mindset of a woman whose lover may have abandoned her for another. It was praised by her friend, the author Stendhal and is now rare in the first edition. We can locate only one institutional copy, at the British Library. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Composition de la tête osseuse de l'homme et des animaux. [Suivi de] Sur l'adgustal, l'un des os de la voûte palatine

      (Paris, Annales des sciences naturelles), 1824. (1824), (1824), in-8, pagination multiple, une planche et un tableau, les deux dépliants reproduits en lithographie, percaline prune à la bradel, dos lisse, titre doré en long, Édition originale, sous forme d'extraits, de ce rare résumé des travaux de Saint-Hilaire sur le crâne ; ils proviennent du tome III des Annales des sciences naturelles (1824). La « Composition de la tête osseuse de l'homme et des animaux » fera l'objet d'un tiré à part destiné à la vente en librairie (Tastu). Geoffroy-Saint-Hilaire y étudie la « composition de la tête osseuse, montre le crâne formé de sept vertèbres, fait l'historique des travaux publiés sur le même sujet, et donne la concordance de sa nomenclature et de ses déterminations avec celles de Cuvier ». (« Vie, travaux et doctrine scientifique d'Étienne Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire » par son fils Isidore, p. 447). L'exposé s'accompagne d'un tableau synoptique et d'une planche détaillant la composition de la tête osseuse du crocodile, d'après un crâne retiré d'une momie trouvée par Geoffroy-Saint-Hilaire dans les catacombes de Thèbes en Égypte ; c'est à partir de cette découverte que l'auteur a décrit une nouvelle et petite espèce vivant dans le Nil, le crocodylus suchus (planches n° 9 et 16 de l'Atlas). L'exposé sur l'adgustal, pages 491 à 506 ; peut figurer comme un "appendice" à l'article précédent. En 1824, Geoffroy-Saint-Hilaire (1772-1844) a derrière lui une carrière déjà importante ; il a acquis la célébrité en 1818 avec la parution de la « Philosophie anatomique » et a énoncé de nombreux principes majeurs, avant de s'intéresser aux pièces paléontologiques et à la description des fossiles. À partir de 1825, il s'engage, contre son confrère et ami Cuvier dans la controverse dite « des crocodiles de Caen » qui le conduira à se prononcer en faveur des thèses transformistes. Exemplaire provenant de la bibliothèque de l'ethnologue et anthropologue Ernest-Théodore Hamy (1842-1908), avec sa jolie étiquette ex-libris à l'orang-outan, reproduction de la belle gravure de l'Homo sylvestris parue dans les Observationum medicarum de Nicolas Tulp en 1641.

        Statistique des Provinces de Savone, d'Oneille, d'Acqui, et de partie de la Province de Mondovi. Paris, Impr. de Jules Didot Ainé, 1824

      Didot Ainé J, 1824. 2 vol. in-4, pp. (4), XII, 359; (4), 512, 13; leg. dell'epoca in cart. muto, protetti da camicia m. marocch e ang. con tit. oro su duplice tass. bicolore ed astuccio cart. Vasto ed accuratissimo studio storico-geografico ed economico-statistico sulla zona denominata un tempo ''Dipartimento di Montenotte'' e comprendente parte delle attuali provincie di Cuneo, Alessandria, Imperia, Savona e Genova. E' corredato di numerose tabelle statistiche a stampa ripieg. f.t. ed illustrato da 2 grandi carte geo-topogr. (una dell'ampia zona citata, l'altra del Golfo di La Spezia) e 44 finissime litografie raffiguranti vedute dei principali paesi e città (tra quelle concernenti il Piemonte: Acqui, Ceva, Dogliani, Garessio, Incisa, Millesimo, Nizza Monferrato, Ormea, Saliceto, S. Stefano Belbo; tra quelle della Liguria: Alassio, Albenga, Albisola (2), Arenzano, Cairo, Carcare, Dego, Diano Marina, Finale Marina, Finalborgo, Noli, Oneglia, Pieve, Porto Maurizio, Sassello, Savona (2), Varazze. L'ultima parte dell'opera è dedicata ad una ''Mémoire sur le Golfe de La Spezzia'' (pp. 478-508); la commissione francese aveva infatti avuto anche l'incarico di valutare le spese da farsi per l'installazione di una base militare nel golfo. Comprende, oltre alla carta menzionata, una veduta del golfo di Spezia (ripiegata), una di Portovenere ed una delle insenature di Varignano e delle Grazie. L'autore (Gilbert-Joseph-Gaspard, comte de Chabrol de Volvic, 1773-1843) fu amministratore del Dipartimento di Montenotte e scelto da Napoleone a far parte della commissione scientifica che lo seguì nella spedizione d'Egitto. Opera straordinaria, molto importante e ricercata, assai rara a trovarsi completa di tutte le tavole ed in ottimo stato come il presente esemplare. Di eccezionale importanza è la parte iconografica, che offre, in molti casi l'unica veduta ottocentesca di località minori.

III p. 243 "Following the completion of his investigation of natural fats, Chevreul wrote a work of a more general nature, Considérations générales sur l'analyse organique (1824), which is a reflection on the many years of research with organic materials. Here Chevreul considered the methods of research in organic chemistry, methods that he himself used with such success in his investigations. The primary analytical problems were how to determine whether one had a pure substance or a mixture and how to resolve the frequently complex animal or plant material into its immediate principles. It was Chevreul who placed this immediate analysis on a rigorous basis. He considered the methods used in handling natural products, in isolating pure substances from them in unaltered form, and in recognizing their purity. He gave precise criteria for what constituted a pure organic compound and presented for the first time a clear and accurate account of the methods of immediate analysis that must necessarily precede elementary analysis.'' - En Français dans le texte n°237 "prolongement plus méthodologique de ses recherches (sur les coprs gras)..."

        An Accurate Description of Greece.

      London: Richard Priestley, 1824. Three volumes, octavo, with seven folding engraved maps and plates; a fine set in contemporary dark green half morocco, gilt, with the library label of Kimbolton Castle. A handsome set of Pausanias' Description of Greece, the second-century guide-book to the Peloponnese and northern Greece.Pausanias' fascinating and wide-ranging description of ancient Greek life and culture was conceptualised and organised geographically rather than chronologically, and comprises a series of reminiscences of classical Greek life evoked by his visits to ancient monuments. A proud Greek living in the Roman Empire, he could not help but muse about the golden age of Greece, which in his lifetime was but an idealised memory.Although ignored during his own lifetime, Pausanias' work has proved to be of great importance for our present-day understanding of the period. Archaeologists have made much use of his descriptions to identify the remains of ancient sites. As Sir James Frazer wrote, 'Without [Pausanias] the ruins of Greece would for the most part be a labyrinth without a clue, a riddle without an answer. His book furnishes the clue to the labyrinth, the answer to many riddles. It will be studied so long as ancient Greece shall continue to engage the attention and awaken the interest of mankind'.This is the second edition in English, translated by Thomas Taylor the Platonist. The maps, one of Ancient Greece and one of the world, are after the French cartographer Jean-Baptiste d'Anville; the plates are after painter and architect James Stuart.

        A Favourite Poodle Hatching Poultry!! or A present of Feather Breeches from the Sandwich Isles.

      London: J. Fairburn, June, 1824. Handcoloured engraving (240 x 340 mm.), mounted. A wonderful and very rare British satirical print from the time of the royal visit to London by King Kamehameha II and Queen Kamamalu in 1824. The print was published in June of the same year: that is, at the very moment when enthusiasm for the Hawaiian visitors was at its peak, and before their melancholy death from measles in July.Cruikshank depicts three of the Royal party bedecked in feathered outfits, which is all the more ironic given that British society was agog at their sophistication, 'wearing coats by a London tailor, and stays and gowns by a Parisian modiste' (Byron, Voyage of H.M.S. Blonde). Here each of the three is muttering gibberish, no doubt fondly imagined by Cruikshank to be a droll imitation of the Hawaiian language.The joke is made at the expense of the Honourable Frederick Gerald "Poodle" Byng (1784-1871), a close friend of Beau Brummel, and a dandy known for his gaming debts. Byng was appointed to escort the Hawaiian party during their unexpected visit to London in 1824. He had light curly hair and was never seen in public without a poodle at his side, earning his nickname from Brummel: espying Byng and his poodle in a curricle, he is said to have greeted him 'how d'ye do, Byng? A family vehicle, I see'. As the Hawaiian king's other name "Liholiho" was thought to mean "dog of dog", Byng's appointment was considered most diverting to Regency wits.Byng, who has adopted a feathered skirt of his own, is pictured exclaiming: 'Egad these breeches are a valuable present - I'll turn 'em to account. Dash my Wig if I don't open a concern in opposition to the Steam & hatch Chickens by the Grose, in the Natural way, I shall then be able to supply your Sandwich Majesties, and other Majesties, Tables with the Real Poodle Poultry, of the finest flavour in the Universe'. A note lying discarded at his feet hints at his taste for gaming. It reads: 'Lost £500 at B-ks's. NB saw them all out, started at 5 in ye Morning'. The note probably refers to Brooks's, the Whig gentleman's club. Faint creases from earlier folding, but a very bright copy.

        Robeing Royalty, a treat for the Sandwichers, at the sign of the Hog in Armour.

      London: S. W. Fores, June 16, 1824. Etching with original handcolour, 235 x 330 mm.; in a recent archival mount, framed. Very rare caricature of the Hawaiian royal family, published during their visit to London in 1824.Kamehameha II, as the name has since become standardised, or Liholiho Iolani as he was also known, was the son of the famous Kamehameha the Great and reigned in Hawaii from 1819. From the earliest days of his reign there was enormous change in the traditional ways of life, and he is generally seen as having personally begun the unravelling of the kapu system.On 27 November 1823, five years after taking his throne, Kamehameha and Queen Kamamalu set sail for London aboard the English whaler L'Aigle. After arriving almost unnoticed, news of the Royal visitors quickly spread, and they were lavishly entertained and attracted great attention in London, helped by the regal bearing of the Queen who was six foot seven inches tall. They visited Westminster Abbey and attended the theatre in Drury Lane where, by royal command, they occupied the royal box.Tragically, everyone in Kamehameha's party came down with measles, for which the Hawaiians had no immunity. Queen Kamamalu died in London on 8 July 1824, a heartbroken Kamehameha a few days later. Their bodies were returned to Hawai'i for burial by HMS Blonde whose captain, George Byron, was a cousin of the poet.Although many contemporary depictions of the visit dwelt on the elegant deportment and sophistication of the Hawaiian entourage, there was another side to London's fascination with the Hawaiian royals, as this rare caricature attests. On the one hand, there were the graceful portraits; on the other a ruthless satire of their adoption of western dress. Both styles, of course, tend towards caricature, but such cartoons are a distinctive part of the rich visual history of their visit, and testament to the depth of public fascination with Hawaii and the South Seas.Another coloured example of this print is in the collection of the National Library of Australia (see http://nla.gov.au/nla.pic-an6589575).
