        Mann, der sich über die nicht der Konvention entsprechenden Bekleidung einer Frau entsetzt.

      - Aquarell und Bleistift, auf Velin. 17,3:21,2 cm. Gavarni, der zu den Meistern der Lithographie des 19. Jahrhunderts zählt, entschloß sich erst 1825 zur künstlerischen Laufbahn. Davor hatte er bei einem Mechaniker und dann bei einem Maschineningenieur eine Lehre absolviert. 1824 hatte er bereits Unterricht bei Je. Adam im Kupferstechen erhalten. 1824/25 ging er nach Bordeaux, anschließend begab er sich für drei Jahre auf Wanderschaft durch die Pyrenäen. Nach seiner Rückkehr nach Paris 1828 begann er autodidaktisch auf geistreich-ironische Weise das Pariser Leben der Salons, Bälle und des Theater zu erfassen. Diese ersten, jetzt mit „Gavarni" signierten Blätter fanden rasch Anerkennung. Die bekanntesten Magazine und Modezeitschriften warben ihn als Illustrator an. Ab 1837 arbeitete er für das Satireblatt „Le Charivari", das zwischen 1832 und 1837 herausgegeben wurde und durch das er internationale Bekanntheit erlangte. Für diese Zeitschrift, aber auch den Figaro und die zweite „Caricature" schuf er die berühmtesten Folgen. Ab 1831 war er auch literarisch tätig. Ein Aufenthalt in London 1847-1851 brachten eine bedeutende motivische Erweiterung: Er zeigt sich jetzt nicht mehr als „Chronist" der mondän-eleganten Welt, sondern als Anhänger der sogenannten „Arme-Leute-Malerei" mit ihrer realistischen und nicht idealisierenden Absicht. Es entstanden zahlreiche Blätter, die das Leben der Armen auf vielfältige Weise thematisierten. Der Tod seines Sohnes und zunehmende Krankheiten führten zum Rückzug von der Umwelt und letztendlich auch von der künstlerischen Arbeit. In den letzten Jahren entstanden keine Zeichnungen mehr und nur wenige Aquarelle. Größere Kollektionen von Handzeichnungen und Aquarellen bewahren der Louvre und das Museum in Brest.

      Talboys & Wheeler, and W. Pickering, Oxford, 1825. 11 vols., 8vo., with engraved armorial vignette on titles; attractively and strongly bound in contemporary tan full calf, sides with gilt frame border, backs with five raised bands, second and third compartments with red and black leather labels lettered in gilt, all other compartments richly ruled and tooled in gilt, doublures tooled in blind, all edges marbled, one volume neatly rebacked with old backstrip laid down, six labels (three red and three black) missing (but residual lettering wholly legible in blind), backstrips rather scuffed and age-worn (particularly on sixth volume), joints mildly rubbed (but all bindings entirely sound), else a handsome, internally crisp and spotless extended set in elaborate period binding. This set includes all half-titles, but was bound without the engraved portrait of Johnson often present in first or third volumes. Published in the series 'Oxford English Classics', this edition was supervised by Francis Pearson Walesby (1798-1858), Fellow of Lincoln College and later Professor of Anglo-Saxon at Oxford. The set was originally to comprise nine volumes (see titles); the tenth and eleventh volumes containing the 'Debates' were issued as supplements. Volume one contains Murphy's 'Essay', first published separately in 1792. In volume nine, 'Journey' retains the dates of August 13 ('Lough Ness') and September 20 ('Skye'), but corrects the error about the Macleods. Courtney & Nichol Smith pp.166-7; CBEL II, p.614 .

      [Oruro (?). 1825].. Broadside, 12 x 8 inches. In Spanish. 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.

He pursued his professional studies at Worcester, with Dr. Greene. He came to Mason, New Hampshire in November, 1790, and commenced the practice of physic and surgery, which he continued until disabled by the infirmities of age. He married (1) Mary Campbell, of Berlin, Conn. She died November 2, 1792. (2) Rachel Cutter, of New Ipswich, who survives him. He died July 11, 1852, aged 85 years."

        "Journal Kept by Joseph Davis on Board Ship Mercury of and from New Bedford on a Whaling Voyage" May 1825 - December 1827. (and) Log of the Whaleship Grand Turk, May - December 1830; October 1831 - Mar 1832

      Folio, unpaginated. About 150 pages of manuscript entries. This book contains journals of three voyages between 1825 and 1832 kept by the same man. The "Mercury" was a 339 ton whaleship built in Rochester, Mass. in 1822. Her master for this voyage was William Austin. She cruised the Pacific, fishing the line and the Japan Grounds, and she had a good trip, bringing home 2485 barrels of sperm oil. The entries by Joseph Davis tend to be perfunctory, but his unique style of entry (two columns, with the left - containing navigational information - at a diagonal to the narrative on the right) make for clarity and easy reading. This is followed by two whaling journals of the 324 ton ship "Grand Turk" in the Atlantic in 1830 to 1832, again kept by Joseph Davis. The first voyage lasted until the beginning of March, 1831, but here is recorded only through December 1830. They went back out again immediatley in April 1831 and returned to port in March 1832, however Davis does not resume his journal of the second "Grand Turk" voyage until October. So in essence we have the front and back ends of a continuous whaling voyage in the South Atlantic. Both trips yielded good results - 370 barrels of sperm oil and 3400 barrels of whale oil. Again, Davis's entries are short and to the point, full of information, and easy to read. Both journals note ships spoken, whales taken, and details of daily life on board. No whale stamps, but a few small drawings indicating ships spoken or gams. At the back of the book are two lists of money loaned out by Captain (of both South Atlantic trips) Stanton Burdick to William Allen. Bound in quester sheep over marbled boards with newer spine label. The three journals bound together

        Wellenlehre auf Experimente gegrundet

      Leipzig: Gerhard Fleischer, 1825. Weber, Ernst Heinrich (1795-1878) & Weber, Wilhelm Eduard (1804-1891). Wellenlehre auf Experimente gegrundet. . . . 8vo. xxviii, 574, [2]pp. 2 printed folding tables, 18 folding engraved plates. Leipzig: Gerhard Fleischer, 1825. 209 x 130 mm. Half speckled sheep, marbled boards c. 1825, rebacked. Light foxing & browning, otherwise very good. First Edition. Garrison-Morton 766. The Weber brothers' Wellenlehre, containing experimental investigations of water and sound waves, was the first work to apply hydrodynamics to the circulation of the blood. In 1827 Ernst Weber, assisted again by his brother Wilhelm, described how the arteries' elasticity transforms the pulsing motion of the blood in the large vessels to a smooth motion in the smaller ones. In 1834, with his brother Eduard (1806-1871), Ernst became the first to measure the velocity of the pulse wave, which he showed to be much faster than the flow of the blood. Ernst Weber's work laid the base for the exact analysis of fluid motion in elastic tubes. DSB. Norman 2190.

        The Gold Temple of the principal Idol Guadma, taken from its front being the Eastern face of the Great Dagon Pagoda at Rangoon

      Kingsbury & Co. and Thomas Clay, London 1825 - Hand-coloured aquatint plates engraved by G. Hunt after Moore. Very good condition apart from some light soiling. A beautiful plate from Moore's book "Eighteen Views taken at & Near Rangoon," an important visual record of the Burmese countryside and scenery, and of the war between the Burmese and British in 1824 to 1826. Following Burmese incursions into British held territory in 1821-1823 (including the successful invasion of Assam), the Governor-General, Lord Amherst, declared war on Burma on February 24, 1824. The British were successful in expelling the Burmese from Assam, but Bandula, the ablest of the Burmese generals, repelled a British detachment at Ramu on the Chittagong frontier. In reply, the British sent an expedition of 11,000 men under Major-General Archibald Campbell and ships under Captain Frederick Marryat to attack Rangoon by sea. The expedition resulted in the capture of Rangoon on May 11, 1824, with the Burmese forces fleeing into jungles of Pegu. Meanwhile, Bandula had been recalled and arrived in Rangoon on December 1 with 60,000 men. He was, however, defeated on December 15 and then retreated to Donabew, where, after a brave defence, he was killed in April 1825. On April 25, Campbell captured Prome, the capital of Lower Burma. The fighting continued sporadically throughout the rest of 1825 and into 1826, until a peace treaty was signed on February 24. Joseph Moore, a Lieutenant in the 89th Regiment, includes images that begin with the departure of Campbell's invasion force and conclude in July 1824. They are a finely balanced mixture of eye-witness battle scenes with a number of very fine views of the countryside and buildings in and around Rangoon. Frederick Marryat's involvement in the conflict began in March 1823 when he "commissioned the Larne for service in the East Indies, where he arrived in time to take an active part in the first Burmese war. From May to September 1824 he was senior naval officer at Rangoon, and was officially thanked for his able, gallant, and zealous co-operation with the troops. The very sickly state of the ship obliged him to go to Penang, but by the end of December he was back at Rangoon, and in February 1825 he had the naval command of an expedition up the Bassein River, which occupied Bassein and seized the Burmese magazines. [It was during this period that he made the sketches worked up into the plates in the second part of the present work]." ( DNB ) Abbey Travel II, 404; Tooley 334. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The Free-Mason [i e Freemasons] Almanac for the Year 1826 Being the second after bissextile, and the fiftieth of Columbian independence Fitted to the town of Enfield, Mass but will serve for any of the adjoining states

      Enfield, MASS.: Printed and sold [by John Howe?], price 5 dollars a groce, 50 cents a dozen, 6 cents single, 1825. FIRST EDITION. IN VERY GOOD ANTIQUARIAN CONDITION. 24 pp., title vignette depicting the symbolic Masonic triangle and compass. Collation: [A-B]2 [C-D]4 COMPLETE. Old wrappers, stitched. Scattered light to moderate foxing Highly curious "Free-Mason Almanac," PRINTED IN ENFIELD, MASS., A TOWN THAT NO LONGER EXISTS and now lies completely submerged beneath the Quabbin Reservoir, in Hampshire County. Incorporated in 1818, and disincorporated in 1938, Enfield was centered at the junction of the east and west branches of the Swift River. The last building in Enfield was razed in 1940. The Quabbin Reservoir is the primary water supply of Bostom, some 65 miles to the east. Whereas the printer of the above Almanac is not named, the only printer in Enfield was John Howe (1784-1845) who also printed at Greenwich. This is the last in a long series of almanacs he published; it would appear that it the only Masonic item that Howe ever printed, almanac or otherwise. The preceding issues were entitled Howe's Almanac and Howe's Genuine Almanac. The title-page format of the present work is virtually identical with that of Howe's Genuine Almanac for 1824 and 1825. Contains a "Charade, for Howe's Almanac" (p. [22]) and an article on Freemasonry (pp. [22-23]). REFERENCE: Clifford Shipton, "Publications of the Howes of Enfield and Greenwich" in: Proceedings of the AAS, vol. 60, pt. 2 (1950), pp. 222.
