        VIVA EL REY. PROCLAMA DEL GENERAL OLAÑETA A LOS PUEBLOS DEL ALTO Y BAJO PERU [caption title]

      [Oruro (?), 1825. Early folds. Very light staining, else near fine. An extremely rare, and possibly unrecorded, example of one of Gen. Antonio de Olañeta's final proclamations to the public, issued three months before his death. Olañeta was a major royalist leader during Bolivia and Peru's fight for independence, serving as a major-general and the commander-in-chief of Upper Peru (Bolivia) from 1823 to his death in 1825. In December 1824, after the revolutionaries' watershed victory at Ayachuco, Olañeta headed to the south of Chile to make a final stand for Spain. On April 4, during an attempt to quell a disturbance within one of his battalions, Olañeta was shot and killed by one of his own soldiers. In the present proclamation, signed in print at Ururo on Jan. 24, 1825, Olañeta declares that the Army of the North has been scattered by a treason of the "so-called liberals" and launches an invective against José de la Serna, Peru's last viceroy and general-in-chief, who lost Ayachuca and whom Olañeta had long opposed. He promises that the king's cause in Peru is not all lost, and calls for the towns of upper and lower Peru to maintain peace in the face of anarchy while the army continues to work to save them. Not in Palau or OCLC, and possibly unique.

        Kentucky and Tennessee ... Improved to 1825

      Philadelphia: H. S. Tanner, 1825. Copper-engraving with full period color. Tanner's 1825 map of Kentucky and Tennessee. Henry Tanner's A New American Atlas was the most distinguished atlas published in America during the nineteenth century. The maps were carefully constructed from the best and most recent surveys. They were finely engraved on a large-scale, printed on high quality paper, and carefully hand colored. Because of the great expense involved in the production and publication, the atlas was published in five parts between 1819 and 1823. This map was first published in 1823 in the fifth part of Henry Tanner's A New American Atlas under the title "Kentucky, Tennessee and part of Illinois." In this second issue, from the 1825 edition of the atlas, Illinois has been dropped from the title and the map has been augmented by the addition of new counties (particularly in southwestern Tennessee) and the additions of various cities and roads. Phillips Atlases 3669-13; cf. Ristow, American Maps and Mapmakers , pp. 191-198; Rumsey 2755.013; cf. Sabin 94323.

        Ansicht des Markt Platzes in München.

      München Geographischen Depot 1825 - Altkolorierte Original-Lithographie. Ansicht bis zum Tuscherand beschnitten. Ansicht stellenweise stockfleckig und mit einem Einriss im linken Dachbereich (4 cm) und im unteren Mittelfeld (9,5 cm). Beide Einrisse fachgerecht restauriert. Rückseitig mit montierter original Legende "Ansicht des Markt Platzes in München Zu finden im geogr. Depot in München". Dieser Zettel weist zwei Durchrisse auf. Bildmaße: 39,9 x 23,6 cm. Die Ansicht des Marktplatzes in München geht mit Blick von der Alten Hauptwache nach Osten auf die Mariensäule und das alte Rathaus mit Turm. Ganz rechts, fast schon am Bildrand, ragt der Turm der Peterskirche empor. Seltene und eine der reizvollsten Ansichten aus der frühen Folge "Zwölf Prospekte der Haupt- und Residenzstadt München". Gustav Kraus, 1804 in Passau geboren, wurde bereits 1817 in Rothenburg ob der Tauber zum Vollwaisen, worauf sein Onkel zum Vormund wurde. 1824 siedelte Gustav Kraus mit 20 Jahren nach München um, wo er bis zu seinem Tode im Jahre 1852 wohnte. "Die größte Bedeutung für die heutige Zeit liegt im Quellenwert des Werkes von Gustav Kraus. Der Bildberichterstatter war es gewohnt Gegenstände und Ereignisse genau wiederzugeben. Gerade die Authentizität, die Tatsache, dass der Käufer alles wiedererkennen konnte, was er selbst gesehen und miterlebt hatte, war der Grund für den geschäftlichen Erfolg von Gustav Kraus. Er hätte es sich zu seinen Lebzeiten kaum erlauben können, Wesentliches ungenau oder unrichtig abzubilden. So ist er heute zu einer nahezu unerschöpflichen und äußerst verlässlichen Quelle geworden. Wollen wir genauen Aufschluss über das biedermeierliche Stadtbild von München, so brauchen wir nur seine Ansichten durchzusehen" (Christine Pressler 1977, 41). Der Katalog von Christine Pressler verzeichnet diese Lithographie unter der Nr. 44. Sie bemerkt: "Die kolorierten Lithographien wurden oft bereits in der Zeit ganz knapp beschnitten und mit einem schwarzen Tuscherand versehen, so dass heute die Beschriftung fehlt, wenn sie nicht ausgeschnitten und unter dem Bild montiert wurde" (Pressler 1977, 21) oder wie in unserem Falle, auf die Rückseite montiert wurde. Gegen einen Aufpreis kann die Ansicht fachgerecht restauriert und neu montiert werden. Gerne schicken wir Ihnen weitere Fotos per email zu.

        Ohio and Indiana ... Improved to 1825

      Philadelphia: H. S. Tanner, 1825. Copper-engraving with full period color. An important early mapping of Ohio and Indiana: the significant second issue, reflecting new boundaries in northern Indiana created by Indian treaties. Henry Tanner's A New American Atlas , was the most distinguished atlas published in America during the nineteenth century. The maps were carefully constructed from the best and most recent surveys. They were finely engraved on a large-scale, printed on high quality paper, and carefully hand colored. Because of the great expense involved in the production and publication, the atlas was published in five parts between 1819 and 1823. The map of Ohio and Indiana originally appeared in the second part of the atlas, published in 1819. Tanner drew upon a number of important surveys, including those of Bourne, Ellicott, Volney, Darby, Kilbourn, and others. The first issue of the map is noted as being one of the earliest maps of Indiana as a state (1816). This second revised edition of the map from 1823, however, reflects the enormous changes in the region. Besides the addition of numerous counties in western Ohio, the mapping of northern Indiana changed completely following a series of Indian treaties in 1818 and 1819, including the important October 1818 Treaty of St. Mary's with the Miami. Virtually all of Indiana north of the Wabash is shown as the land of the Miami. The Delawares, who had ceded their Indiana lands in October 1818, are no longer mentioned. Several counties now appear in the state north of the 40th parallel. Other changes include the additions of many new roads, including a lengthy trail extending from Fort Wayne to Fort Dearborn. Phillips, Atlases, 3669-12 ;cf. Ristow, American Maps and Mapmakers , pps. 191-198; Rumsey 2755.012; cf. Sabin 94323.

        Broadside, begins: "Ministerio general del Gobierno del Estado del Salvador ... La Asamblea legislativa ... decreta. Se declara insubsistente el nombramiento de magistratado par que fue electo el Lic. Atanacio Urritia."

      In this early Salvadoran broadside the legislature nullifies the appointment of Lic. Urrutia to the Supreme Court and places Lic. Jose Felix Quiros on the bench instead. Printing seems to have arrived in El Salvador in 1825, placing this in the first decade of that art there. Apparently rare: We trace no copy via NUC Pre-1956, WorldCat, CCILA, or METABASE.

        ATLAS GÉOGRAPHIQUE, STATISTIQUE, HISTORIQUE ET CHRONOLOGIQUE DES DEUX AMÉRIQUES ET DES ISLES ADJACENTES

      Paris, 1825. Large folio. Modern half morocco and boards, vellum tipped corners. Minor soiling, some light foxing, a few repairs, very small old library mark on titlepage. Else very good. This important atlas is based on Carey & Lea's A COMPLETE HISTORICAL...AMERICAN ATLAS, issued first in Philadelphia in 1822, and again in expanded formats in 1823 and 1825. However, it adds even more material than appears in any of the Carey & Lea editions, especially the western maps. Most of the atlas is devoted to the United States and its territories, and incorporates the latest geographical knowledge available, by what was then one of the premier mapping firms in the United States. There are maps of virtually every state, with copious statistics supplied in the margins. The large map of Arkansas Territory is actually the 1823 Long map of the Great Plains and Mississippi Valley, extending as far west as Santa Fe and the edge of the Rockies, while the map of the whole North American continent and the excellent large detailed map of the United States and territories can lay claim to being the best available to that time.

        Essays on Landscape Gardening, and on uniting picturesque effect with rural scenery: containing directions for laying out and improving the grounds connected with a country residence

      London: Printed by S and R. Bentley for J. Taylor, 1825. Quarto. (12 3/4 x 10 inches). Half-title, uncut. 6 aquatint plates (3 hand-coloured, 3 printed in sepia [2 of these with overlays]). Original paper-covered boards, paper title label to backstrip, green morocco backed box, spine in six compartments with raised bands, ruled in gilt on either side of each band, lettered in the second compartment, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt A fine, unsophisticated copy of a beautifully illustrated work on the art of landscape gardening as practiced in England at the start of the 19th century. In the preface to the present work, Morris acknowledges his inspiration to have been the works of Humphry Repton, Uvedale Price, William Gilpin and to a lesser extent William Shenstone, William Mason, Richard Payne Knight and Thomas Whately. Taking the "instructive hints" from these disparate sources, Morris here offers essays on eight aspects that need to be considered when laying out an English country garden and estate, together with six plates that further illustrate his points. As in the works of Repton, two of the plates contain overlays showing the landscape before and after Morris's improvements. Morris, a plantsman and surveyor approaches his subject from a more detailed and practical point of view than his illustrious predecessors. For example, where Repton had suggested a hillside be moved and trees planted, Morris suggests a similar scheme but also lists the trees and shrubs which would be suitable. Given this attention to horticultural detail, it is unsurprising that Morris's other works included Flora Conspicua; a selection of the most ornamental flowering, hardy, exotic and indigenous trees, shrubs, and herbaceous plants, for embellishing flower-gardens and pleasure-grounds (London, 1826) and The Botanist's Manual. A catalogue of hardy, exotic, and indigenous plants, according to their respective months of flowering (London, 1824). Abbey Life 40.

        A nineteenth century album containing forty six fine watercolours

      Probably Venice, 1825. In fine condition, the watercolours well preserved and bright.. Oblong small quarto album, 185 x 275mm, containing forty-six watercolours of various sizes and shapes ranging from delicate circular vignettes to larger scenes of urban and theatrical life, elegantly bound in nineteenth-century ochre morocco with ornate gilt decoration. A beautiful suite of watercolours, including a superb series of scenes of a contemporary Venetian commedia dell'arte troupe, by the Venetian painter and engraver Novelli. Featuring images from both the stage and street-performance, each of the 46 deftly drawn images is of considerable quality. this is a rare and exceptional collection that provides a wonderful insight into Italian theatre in its golden age. Francesco Novelli (1767-1836) lived his whole life in Venice where he was best known for his vivid and imaginative book illustration. He worked on Algarotti's Opere (1791-94) with his father, beginning a long and successful career culminating in his beautiful editions of Don Quixote (1819) and Gil Blas (1820). He is also known for illustrating works such as the Fasti Veneziani (1794), hinting at his abiding interest in the theatre and the performing arts. One of his most important teachers was the French artist Vivant Denon, who visited Venice in the 1790s. Denon seems to have had a formative influence on Novelli's career, not least because he introduced his pupil to the engravings of Rembrandt, noticeably influencing his style.This album includes an incomparable collection of Novelli's watercolours, with the greatest number being piquant images of a Venetian troupe of the commedia dell'arte, with especially fine depictions of Pierrot himself, as well as other key figures such as Columbine and Harlequin. It includes a remarkable series of scenes from a stage play, as well as studies of the individual performers. Indeed, many of these images are so precisely rendered that it is almost certain that Novelli depicts a well-known troupe, perhaps one with which he was personally connected.The remaining images cover all aspects of contemporary life, including several military vignettes (perhaps scenes from the diorama) as well as charming rural scenes. Several show Novelli's work at its most sympathetic, especially in his animated studies of street vendors and town squares. It is also likely that many of these scenes derive from a period when the troupe was on the road, especially as some of the liveliest show street performers, conjurors and Punch and Judy shows. These scenes reveal Novelli at the height of his powers, especially his skill in capturing the energy and fascination of the crowds that gathered to watch the impromptu performances.Unpublished, although the compilation of the album suggests that publication might originally have been Novelli's intention. This is a superb collection of images by one of the pre-eminent artists of his generation, providing an insight into Novelli's involvement with the Venetian theatre, as well as giving a unique opportunity to study the daily life of a travelling group of European artists and musicians at the turn of the nineteenth century.Make-up of the album? three portraits of peasants:? a fishmonger with his left sleeve hanging loose? a peasant women with a cob of corn? a profile of a woman in an elaborate scarf? a uniformed cuirassier rejects the entreaty of a woman? a lively scene at the market, with a grenadier, a Pierrot, and a harlequin? a crowd gathers around a conjuror in the town square? children animatedly watch a Punch and Judy show? a street performer shows a dancing bear while an urchin shows a monkey? two small round scenes:? the first of a cavalry charge? the second a peaceful domestic scene around the hearth? an infantry charge (perhaps a real scene or a diorama)? three generations of women, interior? a lively outdoors scene of the stables? two women work inside a darkened barn? four liveried horses with a cart full of hay? two small round scenes:? a scene in the yard of a hostelry? cooking in a well-provisioned kitchen? two small square scenes:? infants and burghers at a Punch and Judy show? small children crowd around an itinerant projectionist? two small square scenes:? dancing a lively jig? the children of the house at lessons? two small square scenes:? a muzzled bear is made to dance? masked members of a commedia dell'arte troupe enjoy a repast? two small square scenes:? a corpulent gent mounts his horse? a befrocked gentleman loses his hat in an impromptu swing? two small square scenes:? a mother with swaddled child and infant greets some friends? a game of cards? two small square scenes:?

        A New General Atlas, comprising a complete set of maps, representing the grand divisions of the globe... compiled from the best authorities, and corrected by the most recent discoveries

      Philadelphia: Anthony Finley, 1825. Imperial quarto. (13 3/8 x 10 5/16 inches). Engraved throughout: title, index leaf, 58 hand-coloured, two hand-coloured engraved comparative charts of mountains and rivers. Expertly bound to style in red straight-grained half morocco, incorporating original marbled paper-covered boards, original green-toned engraved title label on upper cover, the flat spine gilt in five compartments, divided by horizontal fillets, lettered in gilt in the second compartment A fine copy of the second edition of this important atlas, from one of the greatest American map publishers of the period. A contemporary review of the first edition applies equally to the present second: "The number of elegant maps and atlases which have come from the press within a short time in the United States, is a most flattering proof of increased attention of the community to the important study of geography. The present work contains sixty maps, about half of which are devoted to the American continent, and the remainder to other parts of the world, chiefly to Europe. The engraving is done almost uniformly with remarkable distinctness and the face of the maps is frequently beautiful, not overloaded with a confusion of useless names" ( North American Review , July 1824, pp.261-262). Little is known of Anthony Finley, other than his published work 'but he was probably born around 1790. Judging from contributors to his atlases, he apparently moved in the same Philadelphia circles of engravers and compilers as other contemporary publishers' (Ristow, p.268). This edition of Finley's celebrated atlas is quite rare. Not on OCLC. Cf. Phillips Atlases 4314 (another ed); cf. Ristow, p.268; cf. Rumsey, p.109 (another ed).

        Illustrations to Popular Songs

      London: published by Thomas M'Lean, Repository of Wit and Humour, 1825. Oblong folio. (9 7/8 x 14 1/8 inches). Letterpress title (verso blank), 1p. "address" with publisher's advertisement beneath (verso blank), otherwise engraved throughout: hand-coloured engraved frontispiece and 42 hand-coloured engraved plates, each within a pale wash border, all by Alken. Expertly bound to style in red/brown half morocco over contemporary marbled paper-covered boards, contemporary red morocco title label on upper cover lettered in gilt, the flat spine divided into six compartments by single gilt fillets, yellow glazed endpapers First edition, third issue: a fine copy of this evocation of Regency England. The first issue of this work was published in 1822, a second in 1823 and the present in 1825. Each print is made up of from two to six vignette scenes, each scene illustrating in a humourous fashion a single line from a popular song of the day. It is not surprising that a number of the images are of hunting, shooting and horses, but also included are scenes from domestic life of all classes, fashion, town and country life, military and naval life, etc. The publisher describes the genesis of this work in the introduction: "'Swans sing before they die --- 'twere no bad thing / 'Should some folks die before they sing.' "So whispered a friend to Mr. Alken, when they were once compelled to hear the discordant notes of a volunteer at a convivial party. 'I wish it were so,' said the Artist, 'but the words of the Song furnish a good subject for a Sketch,' and he soon presented his friend with the Illustration of 'Begone Dull Care,' this was much approved of, and became the first 'Symptom' of the 'Illustrations of Popular Songs,' a Work intended to furnish the Amateur of the Fine Arts, and of Singing, with characteristic representations of his favourite subjects, that he may have the pleasure of beholding the Poet's fancy, embodied by the glowing warmth of the Artist's fertile imagination." The artist Henry Thomas Alken was born into what became an artistic dynasty. He studied under the miniature painter J.T. Barber and exhibited his first picture (a miniature portrait) at the Royal Academy when he was sixteen. From about 1816 onwards he "produced an unending stream of paintings, drawings and engravings of every type of field and other sporting activity. He is best remembered for his hunting prints, many of which he engraved himself until the late 1830s ... To many, sporting art is 'Alken', and to describe his work or ability is quite unnecessary" (Charles Lane British Racing Prints pp.75-76). Not in Abbey; cf. Schwerdt IV, p.4 (1822 edition with 40 plates); cf. Tooley 37 (1822 issue, noting four subsequent issues).

        Nicholas Vincent Tsawanhonhi, principal christian chief, and captain of the Huron indians

      [London]: Printed by C. Hullmandel, 1825. Hand-coloured lithograph. Rare and very desirable hand-coloured lithograph of the Huron chief, Nicholas Vincent Tsawanhonhi, drawn from an original painting by Edward Chatfield. We can find only two copies of this print, one in the Winkworth Collection at the National Archives of Canada, and another at Yale. In this image Chief Tsawanhonhi is pictured in his native dress, as he was when presented with three other Huron chiefs to King George IV of Great Britain on April 7, 1825. Tsawanhonhi holds a piece of wampum in his right hand, and the long decorative collar bears the image of a tomahawk presented to him by the late George III. He is shown in a wilderness setting, and wears a royal gift around his neck, a large gold medal given to him by George IV. The print was executed after an original painting by Edward Chatfield, a young and talented pupil of Benjamin Robert Haydon, a painter of historical scenes who supplemented his income with portrait painting. The lithographer, Charles Joseph Hullmandel was born in London in 1789 and is one of the great names in British lithography, contributing a number of important early innovations in the process of lithography. Nicolas Vincent, called 'Tsaouenhohoui' but spelled 'Tsawanhonhi' on this print, was born in 1769 in Jeune-Lorette. He was the son of Louis Vincent, called 'Sawantanan', and Louise Martin, also known as 'Thodatowan'. Tsawanhonhi was named War Chief in 1803, and went on to become Grand Chief of the Huron-Wendat Nation in 1810. During his leadership of the tribe he embarked on a long process of land claims that took him to England in 1825, where he presented the grievances of his people to King George IV. He also had to face the numerous problems caused by colonization, including logging within the borders of the lands the Hurons-Wendat needed for subsistence. Tsawanhonhi was the first Indian to speak to the members of the Assembly of Lower Canada, and at the request of colonial authorities in 1829 he drew the map known as the 'Vincent Plan', identifying a portion of the hunting lands used by his compatriots. He died on November 1, 1844 at the age of seventy-five.

        [A pair of angling prints each captioned with quotes from Horace and Virgil:] Sic omnia retro ... [and:] Piscium et summa genus hoesit ulmo ..

      London: Thomas McLean, 1825. Aquatint and engraving, coloured by hand. Sheet sizes: 9 3/8 x 11 5/8 inches and 9 1/2 x 11 7/8 inches. A handsome and humourous pair of angling prints. The first image shows a fisherman with a slack line just after losing a fish and stepping into a cow pad, with the Virgil caption roughly translated as "Thus all things change for the worse." The Horace quotation is a play on words, substituting "Perchicos" [perch] for "Persicos" [i.e. Persian], and roughly translated as "The finest perch is not for me." The second image shows an angler who has pulled a fish from the water but whose line (and fish) are caught in a tree. The famous fishing-related Horace quotation follows, "The fish was entangled in the elm tree." The Virgil quotation refers to the climbing into the river to free his line and can be read as "courage to tempt the raging stream."
