        Ruhender Jäger mit Hunden; der Jäger in der Tracht des 16. Jahrhunderts.

      - Radierung, auf Bütten. 17,9:13,2 cm. Literatur: Nagler Monogrammisten II, 2067; vgl. Thieme/Becker XI, S. 375. – Die einzige bekannte Radierung Fellners! Provenienz: Aus dem Nachlaß der Familie Fellner, Frankfurt am Main. Nach dem Jurastudium hat sich der 1825 unter die Advokaten seiner Heimatstadt Aufgenommene autodidaktisch zum Maler ausgebildet. Im Oktober 1825 ging er nach München, wo ihn vornehmlich P. von Cornelius (1783-1867) beeinflusste. 1831 ließ er sich in Stuttgart nieder, wo er bis an sein Lebensende blieb. Seine hervorragendste Bedeutung hat Fellner als Zeichner, der aus Geschichte, Sage und Dichtung mit unerschöpflicher Phantasie immer neue Begebenheiten darstellte und sich dabei bewusst an den Charakter altdeutscher Kunst anschloß. Ein Teil seines zeichnerischen Nachlasses befindet sich heute im Städelschen Kunstintstitut, Frankfurt a.M.

        "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.

        Record of Orders for Town Charges." TOWN ACCOUNT BOOK. Manuscript on Paper

      New Portland, Massachusetts, 1825-1847. Covers scuffed and partially stained, occasional waterstaining inside, overall IN VERY GOOD ANTIQUARIAN CONDITION, COMPLETELY UNSOPHISTICATED. Small 8vo (7.5 x 4.5") pages unnumbered, bound in original quarter calf over plain boards. Contemporary ink on cover, "Record of Orders for Town Charges," Sept. 1, 1825 - Nov. 15, 1847 HIGHLY INTERESTING MANUSCRIPT ACCOUNT BOOK OF THE TOWN NEW PORTLAND, FORMERLY IN MASSACHUSETTS, SUBSEQUENTLY GIFTED BY LEGISLATION TO MAINE, IN COMPENSATION FOR THE BURNING OF FALMOUTH (TODAY KNOWN AS PORTLAND, MAINE) BY THE BRITISH DURING THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR. It is of the greatest interest that New Portland, MA (i.e. ME) was first settled by Revolutionary War veterans in 1773; financial records of the early township, the settlers, their children and their grandchildren, appear throughout the present manuscript. It would appear that almost no early records of the town survive, financial or otherwise: thus the present manuscript is of the greatest interest to historians of Massachusetts, Maine, and beyond. The account book is penned in several clear hands, in medium-brown and occasionally blue ink, its chroniclers unnamed but diligent. Many of the town's pioneers as well as local places are named. A few sample entries: "Dec. 5, 1825: Order drawn in favor of S. Gould for advertising 3 petitions and for abatements: $7.00... Jan. 1, 1833: Order in favor of James Spear for rations for himself & a private in his Company & for Elder Hutchins... Mar. 15, 1834: P. Strickland for building School House, $210.00... Mar. 7, 1835: Tobias Churchill for furnishing clothes to Love Butler, a pauper, $6.50... Nov. 13, 1836: James Hutchins for his services as committee on the bridge at Churchill's falls, $5.00 [David Hutchins was the very first settler of the village, in 1783]... Jan. 24, 1843: for damage on acct. of bad roads the present winter, $4.00...." Other orders for gun powder, saving bridge timber, "for working highway," "blowing rocks," "chaise & waggon," medical services, "supplies to paupers," "highway taxes," "poll taxes," auctioneers license, retailer license, "school district tax," "paying cash to soldiers," and much, much more. The account book is a veritable mine of original source material concerning the finances of the early pioneers in this area; for instance: "Mar. 22, 1826: Order in favor of Josiah Parker for balance due him on settlement as treasurer, $167.50"). In 1786 Josiah Parker arrived at New Portland from Groton, Mass. He had served in the Fourth Regiment of Massachusetts militia during the Revolutionary, and was honorably discharged at West Point. "He subsequently bore an honorable and arduous part in the affairs of this town" SOURCE: "History of New Portland, Maine, From a Gazetteer of the State of Maine" by Geo. J. Varney, Boston, B.B. Russell, 1886). THE WIRE SUSPENSION BRIDGE: New Portland is famous for its extremely early and largely original Wire Suspension Bridge, believed to be the earliest surviving example in the United States. Scholars and architectural historians disagree about the date of conception, construction, and completion, yet the present account book provides conclusive answers about all of the above. See for instance the orders paid on March 7, 1840 to "John Hansen for plans for the bridge at the falls" and to "John Newall for building abutments under the bridge at the falls." From 1840 to 1847, this account book provides records of exact amounts that were paid to named workers, suppliers, and engineers for construction on the bridge. Interestingly, the greatest number of orders were paid by the town in 1847, specifically July 15, September 10, and September 25, 1847. Marilyn Gorman and Dianne Pease, in their "Bridges of West New Portland" (Maine Memory Record Online) give an insightful history of the New Portland Wire Suspension Bridge. On June 20, 1842 the bridge was opened to traffic, the cost was "$2200." A FASCINATING ENCAPSULATION OF THE BIRTH, HARDSHIPS, FINANCES, AND DOLLAR VALUES OF THIS EARLY MASSACHUSETTS TOWN.

Includes the Antiquites de L'Eglise Anglo-Saxone, Justification de la Histoire D'Angleterre and tableux volumes. Par le Dr John Lingard ; traduite de l'anglais par M. le Chevalier de Roujoux. Brunet III 1084. Lingard?s History of England is an unusual but esteemed for its sagacity and dedication to research. Unusual in the regards that Lingard, a Catholic, wrote a History of England for Protestants but also to emphasize the disastrous effects of the Reformation while being temperate in his beliefs He was devoted to absolute accuracy and detail and the History is a groundbreaking work in its use of primary sources. Lingard made extensive use of Vatican archives and French, Italian, Spanish and English dispatches, document collections and state papers ? the first British historian to do so. This edition continues up into the end of George III reign. William Cobbett used Lingard?s history as an unbiased reference source for his own History of the Protestant Reformation in which he puts forward the argument that the reformation had disastrous consequences for the ordinary people of England.

Bookplate of John L. Clawson. With an ALS With an ALS from Egan tipped in, dated December 19, 1836, to a Mr. Simpson, regarding the latter's staring role in The Hunchback, part of a benefit performance to be put on by Egan the following day. The letter reads in part, "You did not cross the water to-day according to promise. The Hunchback will be reherarsed tomorrow at Eleven ... Therfore, "be a good boy" and *train* at home tonight, by a good night's repose ... I am happy to say the Box Sheet promises well, Therefore, my Rum One, remember *Eleven* ..." The Figaro in London reviewd the benefit, and despite Egan's evident worries about Simpson's preparedness, was pleased with the performance. In the review we learn that Simpson was not a trained actor, but a biscut baker in the Strand by day. With original part issue number 2, illustrated with one hand-colored plate ("A spirited Scene, and full of Characters. PROTEUS, and his brother Actors ..."), in original sewn wrappers.
