        Alexander-Newski-Gedächtniskirche auf dem Kapellenberg, Potsdam, 1856. Original-Photographie. Vintage. Salzpapier-Abzug. Verlagsseitig montiert. Köln, verlegt durch F.C. Eisen, 1856. Bildgröße 25 x 39 cm. Blattgröße 45 x 63 cm.

      - Auf dem Träger Blindstempel des Verlegers (der Träger an den Rändern leicht gebräunt sowie ein ganz kleiner Einriß im rechten weißen Rand, der Abzug im linken und unteren Rand etwas blass, sonst sehr gut erhalten). Rarissimum der frühen Potsdam-Photographie und sicherlich die erste großformatige fotografische Ansicht der berühmten Kirche. Die Kirche wurde zwischen 1826 und 1829 von Friedrich Wilhelm III. für die aus Russland stammenden Soldaten des Sängerchors der russischen Kolonie Alexandrowka errichtet und ist das älteste russisch-orthodoxe Kirchengebäude in Westeuropa. Die frühesten überlieferten Potsdam-Fotos stammen von sog. 'Reisephotographen', also solchen, die nicht ortsansässig waren. In Potsdam waren dies Michiels (1823-1887), der 1856 dort photographierte, und die Brüder Schneider, die erst 1859 Berlin und Potsdam bereisten. Michiels ist vor allem für seine Aufnahmen vom Kölner Dom bekannt, von seinen - hervorragenden - Potsdam-Photographien tauchten bisher nur ganz wenige auf. Vier Motive wurden 2006 im Rahmen der Ausstellung 'Auslöser Potsdam' gezeigt, weitere kennt man nur aus dem Inserat, das der Verleger Eisen 1858 in der Leipziger 'Illustrirten Zeitung' schaltete. Abgesehen von der Seltenheit ist das große Format und der ausgezeichnete Erhaltungszustand des hier angebotenen Abzugs bemerkenswert. Der seinerzeitige Preis betrug übrigens 2 Taler (Thaler) pro Blatt, das entspricht etwa dem Wochengehalt eines Webers um 1850 oder dem halben Monatslohn einer Stickerin oder Weißnäherin in Berlin. - Vgl. Auslöser Potsdam, 29 - Heidtmann, Wie das Photo., S. 55. 2000 gr. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Nachgelassene Schriften und Briefwechsel. Hrsg. von Ludwig Tieck und Friedrich von Raumer. 2 Bände. XVI, 780 S.; 784 S., 1 Bl. Marmor. Pappbde. d. Z. (Ecken etwas bestoßen) mit rotem Rückenschild.

      Leipzig, F. A. Brockhaus, 1826. - Erste Ausgabe der Nachlasssammlung des früh verstorbenen Solger (1780-1819), ein Schüler Schellings, war ein Hauptvertreter der Philosophie der Romantik. Er wurde 1811 Professor für Philosophie an der Berliner Universität. Diese 'Schriften' enthalten kleinere Aufsätze zur Philosophie und Ästhetik, Politik und Literatur, darunter bemerkenswerte Rezensionen zu Goethe, Jean Paul, Novalis, Klinger, Schiller u. a., ferner Tagebuchaufzeichnungen und Briefwechsel mit Tieck, Raumer, Schiller u. a. Während Tieck sich in manchen Vorreden ausschließlich auf Biographisches beschränkte, ist diese Solger-Ausgabe als ein letzter Freundschaftsdienst anzusehen; außerdem waren beteiligt Solgers Freund Krause, der jedoch vor Bearbeitung des zweiten Bandes starb, Hegel, der die philosophischen Abhandlungen betreute, und K. O. Müller, der die mythologischen Schriften durchsah. Tieck und Raumer schrieben als Herausgeber des Nachlasses: "Nur wenigen Menschen war dieser Zauber der Sprache verliehen. Auch dem Uneingeweihten sprach er klar und faßlich über schwierige Gegenstände." Die Philosophie Solgers bezeichnet den Übergang des speculativen Denkens von der Wissenschaftslehre Fichtes zu dem System Hegels. – Titel mit kleinem altem Bibliotheksstempel.

First Voyage: This was a very successful polar voyage. Parry had a relatively ice free year and penetrated further into the Canadian Arctic than any previous expedition. This was also the first expedition to intentionally winter in the Arctic. A major book in the history of Arctic exploration. Second Voyage: The year 1819 proved to be exceptionally ice free and Parry was able to penetrate through Lancaster Sound and Barrow Strait to Melville Island, into the heart of the Arctic, much further than had been reached previously. The ships successfully wintered on the south coast of Melville Island, the first to intentionally do so, and returned in 1820. In one season he had penetrated halfway to Bering Strait and had charted over a thousand miles of unknown coast. In doing so he demonstrated that an Arctic winter could be endured in safety if not comfort, and set the pattern for Arctic expeditions for a generation to come. Parry made two further attempts at the North-West Passage. In 1827 he tried to reach the North Pole and set a new northern record which stood until 1876. Throughout the whole of this work, the characteristics of the Eskimaux, and incidents of intercourse with them, absorb the attention of the writer. The work is a treatise on aboriginal life rather than a narrative of scientific discoveries. Twenty-two of the plates, from drawings by Captain Lyon, depict the Eskimaux, in costume, at work and play, hunting and fishing, singly and in family or social groups, children `at play'; and are among the most fascinating and charming of their kind. Third Voyage:Severe ice conditions forced this expedition to winter on the west coast of Baffin Island. 'Fury' was damaged in Prince Regent Inlet and was abandoned in August 1825, forcing the expedition home. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Der Aufruhr in den Cevennen. Eine Novelle in vier Abschnitten. Erster und zweiter Abschnitt (alles Erschienene). V, 440 S. Roter Halblederbd d. Z. mit Rückentitel (Tiecks Novellen 15) und reicher Romantiker-Rückenvergoldung. Marmorierter Schnitt.

      Berlin, G. Reimer, 1826. - Erste Ausgabe. Die "Novelle", eine der ersten bedeutenden Nachahmungen der Romane Walter Scotts, gilt als ein Höhepunkt des Tieckschen Spätwerks. Thema ist der religiöse Fanatismus. Tieck schildert nicht nur historisch getreu den Kampf der protestantischen Camisarden in Südfrankreich gegen die Truppen des katholischen Königs, sondern, verwoben mit einer fiktiven Handlung, wird ein Bild der geistigen Strömungen, politischen Aktivitäten und Motivationen der Zeit um 1705 gezeichnet. Willibald Alexis sagte von diesem bewunderungswürdigen Buch, es erwecke den Anschein, als habe Tieck damit das Geheimnis des historischen Romans entdeckt. Diese "unvollendete Großnovelle ist eine der ersten bedeutenden Nachahmungen der Romane Walter Scotts" (Paulin, Metzler, S. 89). – Fliegender Vorsatz mit Widmung. Sauberes Exemplar. – Goed.

He called the essential agent of animal magnetism telluric power, associating animal magnetism with a generalized force. In this lengthy and important work, he describes mineral, vegetable, and animal magnetism, attempting to provide a foundation in physics for animal magnetic phenomena. Kieser says that sleep is a general expression of magnetic life and that somnambulism is a natural product of the application of animal magnetic techniques. In describing magnetic healing, he places some emphasis on the power of belief as supplementary to the healing power of animal magnetism itself. The second volume contains a history of animal magnetism and a good bibliography". - Dietrich Georg von Kieser (1779-1862), deutscher Mediziner u. Psychiater u.a.

        Considerations on the State of the Currency.

      London: John Murray, 1826. London:: John Murray, 1826., 1826. 8vo. iv, 128, [2], 129-152, [8] pp. Ads at rear (dated Dec. 29, 1825). Original plain boards, printed paper spine label; spine joints reinforced with neat kozo. Very good. Rare. First edition. Written in response to a banking crisis and a collapse in both the economy and of a number of British banks, Tooke quickly sought to influence party policy with his viewpoint on economics. "... the pamphlet, Considerations on the State of the Currency (1826), was sparked by the collapse of the London financial market in late-1825. This financial crisis was accompanied by bank collapses, widespread bankruptcy and, most significantly, an internal drain of bullion reserves which nearly forced the Bank of England to suspend cash payments on demand, only four-and-half years after resumption had been accomplished in 1821. The crisis was to be the beginning of a severe economic downturn which persisted throughout 1826 and early 1827. It took many by surprise because it came at a time of apparent prosperity and healthy economic activity. No major events could be identified as the catalyst for the crisis. However, Tooke (1826: 48-9) had a clear understanding of its origins. He believed the crisis was the result of an unsustainable boom in the stock market which had all the hallmarks of the speculative mania of the famous 1720 South Sea Bubble. Indeed, Tooke was among those who foresaw the dangers of the speculative boom and fully anticipated financial disaster. Thus, when in late 1825 the financial system went into crisis and the economy was heading for a severe downturn, Tooke set himself the task of explaining the causes of the crisis and the lessons for banking policy. His motivation for writing the Considerations was therefore to influence policy debate and to procure overdue reform of the English banking system at a politically opportune time. With the encouragement of Lord Grenville, former Prime Minister and influential parliamentarian, and William Huskisson, President of the Board of Trade, Tooke hurriedly wrote the pamphlet over the winter of 1825-26 in readiness for public debate on the crisis at the parliamentary session beginning in early February 1826." [pp. 20-21] – Matthew Smith, Thomas Tooke and the Monetary Thought of Classical Economics, (2011). "The work was at first meant as a sequel to the first part of the "High and Low Prices," published 1822, but he afterwards devoted it more especially to the consideration of the events between that date and 1826. He argues that the Bank ought to have unloaded, at any rate the greater part of, the "Dead Weight Annuity" as soon as the increased issues for payment upon the purchases produced a bad effect on the exchanges, or to have raised the rate as a means of decreasing the redundant issue. Also that the non-publication of the Bank's accounts introduced too large an element of uncertainty, and suggests the obvious remedy. The greatest evils, however, were the precarious state of the country issues. "Every country Banker ought to be called upon to give some pledge of his ability to pay on demand the Notes which he may be permitted to issue." Further, "there is one part of that circulation which ought not upon any footing or with any modification to be any longer tolerated. I mean the Notes under £5." Some Country Banks grumbled if the public asked for gold; he rightly says: "If there is any feeling of the harshness of demanding coin for the Notes of a Bank, such Notes are more or less imperfectly convertible."" - Stephens. Einaudi 5653; Goldsmiths 25024; Kress C.1805; Mattioli 3629; T.A. Stephens, A contribution to the bibliography of the Bank of England, (London, 1897), pp. 64-5.

        Narrative of Travels and Discoveries in Northern and Central Africain the Years 1822, 1823, and 1824, by Major Denham, Captain Clapperton, and the late Dr. Oudney, extending accross the Great Desert to the Tenth Degree of Latitude, and from Kouka in Bornou, to Sackatoo, the Capital of the Fellatah Empire

      1826 - First edition. Large folding map & 38 plates (1 coloured), with 5 woodcut vignettes. 4to. Contemporary half calf, with marbled paper boards, joints cracked butfirm a little rubbed.xlviii, 335, 272pp. London, John Murray. On their meeting in Edinburgh ?Oudney turned Clapperton's thoughts to African discovery. Lord Bathurst, then colonial secretary, appointed Oudney consul of Bornu, and employed Clapperton to accompany him in a journey to Central Africa. Major Dixon Denham [q.v.] volunteered to accompany the travellers from Tripoli to Timbuctoo. Proceeding south from the Mediterranean early in 1822 the travellers reached Murzuk, and by way of Musfeia and Zangalia arrived at Kuka in the kingdom of Bornu, on the west of Lake Tchad. Thence after great suffering they reached Sokota. They failed to ascertain the source and termination of the Niger, but determined the positions of the kingdoms of Mandara, Bornu, and Houssa, and their chief towns; while Denham, after some other movements, explored Lake Tchad. Clapperton and Oudney journeyed westward to the Niger. At Murmur in January 1824 Oudney died and was buried by his friend. Clapperton proceeded alone to Kano, capital of Houssa, and to Sokota, the extreme point of the expedition in that direction. Although but five days' journey from the Niger, he was not allowed by the sultan to proceed westward. On 4 May he started on his return, was rejoined by Denham at Kuka, and reached Tripoli in January 1825, and England on 1 June? (DNB). This is as fine a copy as we have seen of this standard work; from the Earl of Derby's library with his bookplate. Copies are most unusual with plates printed on India paper.

Denham and Clapperton, in the company of Dr. Walter Oudney, travelled frm Benioleed, near Tripoli, almost due south to Lake Tchad, with excursions into the mountains west of Mourzuk in Fezzan. Dixon attempted to follow the circuit around Lake Tchad but was unsuccessful. In the meantime, Clapperton and Oudney journeyed west from the lake toward the Niger River, but the doctor only made it about a third of the way and died in Murmur. Clapperton continued west, but was prevented from passing beyond Sackatoo by the local Sultan. He and Denham subsequently returned to Tripoli and crossed back to England This narrative is compiled primarily from Denham's journal, with a chapter by Dr. Oudney on the excursion to the mountains west of Mourzuk. A final section by Clapperton relates the westward journey from Lake Tchad to Sackatoo and includes an account of Oudney's death. Among the several appendices are translations from the Arabic of various letters and documents brought back by Denham and Clapperton, including a document relating to the death of Mungo Park; a translation from the Arabic of a geographical and historical account of the Kingdom of Tak-roor, from a larger work composed by Sultan Mohammed Bello of Hausa; vocabularies of Bornou, Begharmi, Mandara, and Timbuctoo; appendices on the zoology and botany of the regions based on samples collected by Dr. Oudney; a note on rock specimens; and a thermometrical journal kept at Kouka in Bornou. The engravings, after drawings by Denham and Clapperton, are superbly engraved by Edward Finden, one of the finest steel-engravers in England at the time. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        The Late Prosperity, and the Present Adversity of the Country, Explained;

      London: published by J. Ridgeway,, 1826. The Proper Remedies Considered, And the comparative Merits of the English and Scottish Systems of Baking Discussed. Octavo (210 x 135 mm). Twentieth-century quarter polished calf, marbled paper boards, spine lettered and ruled in gilt, top edge brown. A few neat pen annotations to contents. Small chip to upper edge of p. 51, tear to p. 49 affecting 3 lines of text, an excellent copy. First edition of the published correspondence between agricultural improver and politician John Sinclair (1754-1835) and currency theorist Thomas Attwood (1783-1856). After he launched the Birmingham Political Union in 1830 Attwood was considered by many to be "'the most influential man in England'" (ODNB), and he was a leading figure in the public campaign for the Great Reform Act of 1832. Both men held each other in high regard; Attwood was an avid reader of Sinclair's works, particularly those on economics, and Sinclair supported Attwood's public letters to Lord Liverpool which alternately offered advice and criticism on the Bank of England's treatment of paper currency. During the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, Attwood's reputation has "steadily risen... as an important early contributor to the theory of economic and monetary policy" (Glasner, p. 23).
