        exhibiting all the various Alterations & Improvements complete to the Present Time. The Strangers Guide to London and Westminster,

      Published by Edward Mogg, No.51 Charing Cross, January 1st, 1826., London, - Hand-coloured engraved plan, dissected and mounted on linen, list of hackney coach fares to verso, housed within original paper slipcase, with publisher's label, rubbed and scuffed. The plan shows the limits of the City of London in red; the sight of the Bethlem (or Bedlam) Hospital in St George's Fields, which when opened in 1815 contained no glass in the windows due to the "disagreable effluvias peculiar to all madhouses", although it was furnished with a library and a ballroom for the inmates. Also depicted is the gradual construction of Sir Robert Smirke's remodelling of the British Museum. The building site was at the time one of the largest in Europe, the work taking some 25 years to complete.Edward Mogg (fl.1803-1860) was a cartographer, engraver, and publisher, active in London at the beginning of the nineteenth century. Rather unusually for the time he not only drew his own maps, but also engraved them. The business was mainly based upon the production of pocket travel guides and maps. Scale: 4 inches to 1 statue mile.

      Mayence chez les fils de B. Schott (c. 1826). Set of parts. - Folio. Title, pp. 2-13, (1) p. (blank); title, pp. 2-12, (1) leaf (blank); title, pp. 2-11, (1) p. (blank); title, pp. 2-11, (1) p. (blank). Lithographic title,engraved music (pl.-no. 2351). Sewn, no binding; in modern cassette. Later issue (see Weinhold in: Dorfmüller S. 258) of the first edition (Mainz imprint, with puiblisher's address in Paris, without 2 blank leaves after title of violin 1 / thus Hirsch). The full score appeared later but still in 1826. In 1822 the Russian prince, Nikolai Galitzin, wrote to "Monsieur Louis van Beethoven a Viennes" and requested "un, deux ou trois Nouveaux Quatuors". With the first of the three Galitzin-Quartets Beethoven began immediately on completion of the 9th Symphony in 1824 (he could count on the preliminary work carried out during the previous two years), and in March 1825 he dispatched the full score to St. Petersburg. Already, on 6th March, the Schuppanzigh Quartet had performed the premiere, although of moderate quality. The composer himself saw the problem not so much in a technique that was too demanding, as lying in the work's structure which had made playing together more difficult given the short amount of time for rehearsal. The "blurring the difference between the primary and the secondary parts, and the playing with alternate attraction and repulsion have become important elements of the concept" (Caeyers p. 727). The composer had even set out the sketches in four parts (although he used to outline his symphonies in only one part), and he insisted that the first edition of the parts and that the full score of later quartets were published simultaneously (for op. 127, for example, they were separated by 3 months, before this it might have been years), in order that the comprehension of the complex structure would be made easier. A few markings with pencil. Green fore-edges. Slightly browned throughout and in places finger-stained. Old handwritten pagination relating to an old "sammelband". Kinsky/Halm p. 385; Dorfmüller pp. 18, 232, 258, 350; Hirsch IV, 399; coll. Hoboken 2, 511; BHB J Van der Spek op. 95; cf. cat. Munich 265.

      2 volumes. L'Imprimerie de Firmin Didot, Paris 1826-1830. Small folio (42x27,5 cm) and large 4to (37x26 cm), on 2 types of paper (volume. 1 "En papier vélin, in fol.", volume 2 "En papier fin"). XX+(1-129) + XXII+(131-)314 pages. 62 engraved illustrations, of which 30 are plates (plates no. 11, 19, 20, 21 & 27 are double-plates). Most engraved illustratrions with protective tissue paper. 4 illustrations are handcoloured. Untrimmed in publishers printed boards (Bauzonnet, Paris). Bindings with shelfwear to edges; corners bumped. Spine-ends somewhat worn. Surfaces of bindings browned.. Brunet I,1273. First edition, all published. Pioneering work on Greece with focus on archaeological aspects by the Danish archaeologist Peter Oluf Brøndsted (1780-1842), who travelled and worked in Greece (then still under Osmannic occupation) from 1810 to 1813. He participated in excarvations in Athens and elsewhere in the country. It took him more than a decade to get the first volumes of his account published, but he succeeded in getting it out in both a German and a French version - in a worthy, state-of-the art bibliophile publication. Lack of fundings caused the magnificent work - planned in eight volumes - to remain a torso. Brøndsted is thus considered a pioneer in modern classical archaeology, where the field work is considered a precondition for theoretical studies. ** Outstanding set. Volume 1 with inscription from Brøndsted: "Deres Höihed Prinds Christian Frederik Prinds af Danmark underdanigst fra Forfatteren, Paris , den 28. Januar 1826". Volume 2 with the signature of Danish early 20th century sculptor Utzon-Frank on verso of front board. *** The Danish crown prince Christian Frederik (from 1839 king Christian VIII) was Brøndsted's benefactor and shared eagerly the latter's interests in Greece. The prince was a keen collector of Greek antiques and must have appreciated Brøndsted's book sincerely
