        The Art of Drawing

      1827. SMITH, Thomas. The Art of Drawing in its Various Branches, exemplified in a course of twenty-eight progressive lessons, calculated to afford those who are unacquainted with the art, the means of acquiring a competent knowledge without the aid of a master; being the only work of the kind in which the principles of effect are explained in a clear, methodical, and at the same time familiar style. xiii, [2], 121 pp. Illustrated with 17 leaves of plates of which 12 are hand-coloured. 8vo., 221 x 137 mm, bound in nineteenth-century boards. London: Sherwood, Gilbert and Piper, 1827. |~||~||~||~| The author is presumably John Thomas Smith, the biographer of Nollekens, who was also an artist and drawing teacher. The thirteenth and fourteenth lessons are on colours and contain 58 hand-coloured swatches. A very scarce drawing manual of which only 7 copies are listed worldwide on OCLC. Some foxing on a few of the text pages, but overall a fine copy.

        The French Cook. By Louis Eustache Ude, Ci-Devant Cook to Louis XVI, and the Earl of Sefton, and Steward to his Late Royal Highness the Duke of York. The Eighth Edition, Greatly Enlarged

      London: William H. Ainsworth, Old Bond-Street, 1827. Octavo, xl, 498 pages. Ads. With an engraved frontispiece portrait of the author, and nine plates illustrating bills of fare. Eighth edition, greatly enlarged. Perhaps the most extravagant work on French cookery published in England up to that time, first issued in 1813. This eighth edition was issued with a much abbreviated title, describing the author more than the contents, and, I believe, it is this title and edition which was used as the source for the First American edition of the work, issued in Philadelphia by Carey and Lea (see Lowenstein 109).Internally tight and clean. Evidence of two previous owners to several pages. The earliest, inks a name and "___ House, 1827" to the first page of the index and once or twice elsewhere. The next owner, "George Hussey" inks his name to the title page, and then via stamp to a preliminary blank. Some internal light staining. In handsomely gilt-decorated half-calf, marbled boards, with some professional restoration to the head and foot of spine. Near very good. [OCLC locates six copies of this edition, just three in the US; Bitting 471; Cagle 1039; Simon BG 1516; Vicaire 849 (other editions)].

        Testacea fluviatilia quae in itinere per Brasiliam annis MDCCCXVII-MDCCCXX ... collegit et pingenda curavit...

      Lipsiae, T.O. Weigel, (1827). 4to (370 x 270mm). pp. [viii], 36, with 29 handcoloured lithographed plates. Contemporary quarter cloth and marbled boards (ends of spine with small repair). First edition of this monograph on the freshwater molluscs of Brazil, the first work devoted to Brazilian shells, and one of several publications resulting from Spix and Martius' expedition to Brazil from 1817 to 1820. The expedition was under the aegis of the King of Bavaria, Maximilian Joseph I. 'His plans for sending scientific explorers to South America were realized in 1817, when an Austrian expedition was sent to Brazil. Martius and several other Bavarian scientists, including his companion, the zoologist Spix, went along. They left Trieste on 2 April 1817 and returned to Munich in December 1820' (DSB).//'Spix and Martius were the first European scientists to visit the Amazon after La Condamine. Their collections ... provided material for a vast number of works by other scientists. Spix himself was occupied entirely with publishing his findings after his return to Munich... Weakened by the fevers that he had suffered on his voyage, he died [in 1826], leaving other zoologists, including Louis Agassiz, to complete the publication of his works' (ibid.). /For this volume the descriptions were provided by J.A. Wagner. It was edited by Paula von Schrank and Martius.//Borba de Moraes II 280; Nissen ZBI, 3954.

        Laurie's New Plan of London and its Environs :Comprising the new buildings and recent improvements. Being an original survey by John Outhett 1827. This survey includes an extent of 7 3/4 miles East and West and 6 miles North and South. It is founded.

      1827 - Sheet map. Hand coloured. Dissected and laid on linen as issued, 66 x 83cm, (26 x 34.5 inches). Green marbled card covers and original green marbled card slipcase with map details on label on the front. Scarce, particularly with the slipcase. The map is remarkably undamaged, with no tears or lacunae and only minimal marking with no loss of detail. The card covers are worn and chipped at the edges and the slipcase is worn at all edges with chips and abrasions. One long seam of the slipcase has come unglued. The map is at a scale of approximately 4 inches to the Mile. The long title seeks to emphasise the accuracy of the map, stating: 'It is founded on the Trigonometric Operations of the late General Roy, combined with a new series of 52 Stations on elevated situations, from which the positions of upwards of 450 Steeples, Domes, Turrets, Vanes and other conspicuous objects,within the limits of the plan, have been determined by means of more than 5000 angles.' The date of 1827 is just before the advent of the railways and was in a period of rapid growth in London, with population rising from 1.4m in 1815 to over 3m in 1860. Consequently the map is a fascinating snapshot of development at this time. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      [Various places. ]. 1827 - 13pp. Large folio. Unbound. Cover sheet with docket title soiled, occasional minor foxing and soiling, evidence of old folds and contemporary sewing threads. In very good condition. A manuscript log maintained on board the American schooner, Mars, during a voyage in September and October 1827 from New London, Connecticut towards Port Santiago, Mexico. The journal abruptly concludes with the ship running aground as it attempts to reach the harbor in Mexico. The anonymous author provides much detail on the various attempts to save the ship in the midst of very harsh weather and the eventual decision to abandon the vessel, salvaging whatever was possible "to be sold on the beach for the good of the owners with all her tackle, apparel, and furniture such as could be got safe on shore." The remainder of the journal covers the ship's departure from New London until the shipwreck. Daily entries include records of the ship's course and speed, latitude readings, and wind directions. Additional remarks regarding the progress of the voyage, wind, weather, sails, rigging, and events on board are recorded each day in a section devoted to "remarks and transactions on board." The activities of the crew are usually recorded simply as "employed variously." In early October, Captain Sandforth Kidder became ill with fever. He did not recover for the rest of the voyage, being taken ashore in Mexico just prior to the ship's attempt to reach shore. A fine firsthand account of a shipwreck and the various attempts to save the vessel.

        Missa Solemnis

      1827. BEETHOVEN, Ludwig von. [Missa Solemnis. Opus 123]. Missa composita, et Serenissimo ac eminentissimo Domino Domino…. Text in Latin. Plate number 2346.

Preserved in nineteenth-century half vellum folding chemise. Paris: B. Schott, 1827. First Edition, trade issue, of the full score of a work generally considered to be one of Beethoven's supreme achievements. "Between October 1822 and February 1824 Beethoven completed three works which are in one way or another as gigantic as the Hammerklavier Sonata: the Diabelli Variations, the Mass in D (Missa solemnis) and the Ninth Symphony" (Joseph Kerman, Alan Tyson - with Scott G. Burnham, Oxford Music Online). "Unquestionably a great work, representing Beethoven at the height of his powers, it has notably failed to reach the popularity of many of the symphonies and sonatas…. Compared to other works of similar stature, the Missa Solemnis is rarely performed. Its notoriously difficult choral parts make it a stumbling block for many orchestras who only have access to volunteer choirs. Limited performances of the work have made it far less known than Beethoven's other large works." With the price "19 fl. 24 kr." on front cover and no list of subscribers. With the yellow Schott & Co. of London printed ticket on front cover and their blindstamp at top of first leaf. Two copies in OCLC; Morgan Library NYC and Oxford University.

        Narrative of a Survey of the Intertropical and Western Coasts of Australia. Performed between the years 1818 and 1822

      London: John Murray, 1827. Two volumes, octavo, with nine aquatint views, large folding map backed with linen (as common), smaller engraved chart and three engraved natural history plates (one folding); a fine set in modern period-style half calf by Aquarius, spines gilt with morocco labels. FINISHED. King's survey voyage: a fine set. First edition of this great book, recounting the Australian coastal voyages of the Mermaid and the Bathurst.Admiral Phillip Parker King (1791-1856), Australian-born son of the third governor Philip Gidley King, became the British navy's leading hydrographer. His Australian coastal voyages, together with Oxley's expeditions inland, represented the great expansionary undertakings of the Macquarie era. King charted the greater part of the west, north and north-east coasts and also carried out important surveys in the area of the Barrier Reef. His hydrographical work is still the basis of many of the modern charts for the areas he surveyed.From 1815 or so, British interest in the largely uncharted northern and north-western coast of Australia had increased, partly out of concern at the territorial ambitions of other nations, especially the Dutch and the French. Much in the same way that Flinders was commissioned due to English concerns over the Baudin expedition, King was given his command because of anxiety about the planned Freycinet voyage. As a direct result, King was sent from England in 1817, with Admiralty instructions to complete the survey of Australia and finish the charting begun by Flinders and Baudin. By 1824-25 he had issued a series of eight large charts showing the northern coasts, to be followed with this complete printed journal of his expedition. The engraved views were taken from King's own sketches.The work also includes significant natural history essays, including work by John Edward Gray, William Sharp Macleay and William Henry Fitton, three senior British scientists. Easily the most interesting section, however, is the long essay by Allan Cunningham, 'A Few General Remarks on the Vegetation of certain coasts of Terra Australis...'. Cunningham had sailed with King, and so this section has the added interest of eyewitness reportage, as well as comparisons between the botany of east and west coasts. Cunningham's report is supplemented by notes from Robert Brown, and the whole section concludes with three natural history plates.This is the regular 1827 issue: a few copies survive with an 1826 date on the title-pages, without any other points of difference (the 1826 issue appears to be a presentation issue of some kind, as is attested by the fact that where seen they are often accompanied by some sort of manuscript dedication).

        "The Morning Salute or Deaf as a Poet".

      . Aquarell, Bleistift und Feder, mit Bleistiftlinie umrandet, auf Papier mit Wasserzeichen J WHATMAN1826; verso signiert "Geor. Cruik-shank" und vermutlich von fremder Hand bezeichnet "Cruickshank The Morning Salute or Deaf as a Poet "Pray what little snob much was I ... saw you ... of last night, Sir _ Eh?". 14,4:17,6 cm. Vorzeichnung für eine Karikatur, die laut älterer Beschriftung verso im Juli 1827 veröffentlich wurde.. Bis auf eine eher oberflächliche Einführung in die Kunst bei seinem Vater, den Karikaturenzeichner I. Cruikshank (um 1756-1810/11), war er Autodidakt. Er selbst fertigte zunächst insbesondere satirische Karikaturen an, die sich gegen die bestehenden sozial-politischen Zustände richteten, zu nennen sind hier seine Napoleon-Karikaturen. Ab 1819 war er zunehmend als Buchillustrator tätig, so fertigte er die Illustrationen zu Pierce Egans (1772-1849) Monatsjournal "Life in London", das von Oktober 1820 bis 1821 erschien und ihm zum Durchbruch verhalf. Darüber hinaus sind seine Radierungen zu Grimms Hausmärchen zu erwähnen, 1824-1826 veröffentlicht. Engere Bekanntschaft zu W.H. Ainsworth (1805-1882) und C. Dickens (1812-1870), Zusammenarbeit mit W. Thackeray (1811-1863). Ab 1848 wurden seine Karikaturen zunehmend moralisierend, er setzte sich in Erinnerung an den Alkoholtod seines Vaters verstärkt gegen den Alkohol ein. Großen Erfolg erlangten diesbezüglich seine Illustrationen zu den Traktaten "The bottle" von 1847 und "The drunkards children" von 1848. Seine Werke besitzt die National Gallery, das British Museum, das Westminster Royal Aquarium und das Victoria and Albert Museum London.

"Einem Brief Ludwig Emil Grimms an seinen Bruder Ferdinand von 1825 zufolge, hat der Künstler den Dichter bereits 1824 kennengelernt. Er beschreibt ihn mit folgenden Worten: Ein Dichter, Heinrich Heine, hat mir von Göttingen aus, wo er Jura studiert, besucht, er hat ein gescheites Gesicht und ist auch nicht häßlich und auch just nicht unangenehm. Er sagte mir, er kenne Dich von Berlin aus. Ich habe so einiges von seinen Sachen gelesen '". (Zit. aus: Ausst. Katalog: Ludwig Emil Grimm 1790-1863. Maler - Zeichner - Radierer. Kassel/Hanau, 1985, Nr. 81). Der vor allem als Radierer tätige Grimm war 1804-1808 Schüler der Kasseler Kunstakademie bei Gottlieb Kobold (1769-1809), Andreas Range (1762-1828) und Ernst Friedrich Ferdinand Robert (1763-1843). Durch seine Brüder Jacob und Wilhelm Grimm wurde er mit Clemens Brentano (1778-1842) und Achim von Arnim (1781-1831) bekannt, mit denen er zusammenarbeitete. Wohl 1807 lernte Grimm Bettine Brentano (1785-1859) kennen, von der er zahlreiche Porträts anfertigte. In November 1808 zog er nach Landshut zu Brentano und dessen Schwager Friedrich Carl von Savigny (1779-1861). Auf ihre Vermittlung ging er nach München und erlernte Kupferstechen bei Carl Ernst Christoph Heß (1755-1828). Zugleich studierte er an der Münchner Akademie unter Andreas Seidl (1760-1834). Unterbrechung des Studiums 1814 durch Teilnahme an den Freiheitskriegen. Mit Georg Brentano reiste er im Frühjahr 1816 nach Italien, wo er zwei Monate blieb. 1817 kehrte er nach Kassel zurück. 1824 reiste Grimm zum ersten Mal nach Willingshausen und wurde zum Mitbegründer der Willingshäuser Malerkolonie, eine der ersten Malerkolonien Deutschlands. 1832 wurde er an die Kasseler Kunstakademie als Lehrer berufen.

        Salmau yr Eglwys yn yr Anialwch

      34 - Merthyr Tydfil - H. W. White, 1827 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A rebound religious, Psalm book, with marble, paper covered boards. Iolo Morganwg (or Morgannwg in modern spelling) was the bardic name of Edward Williams (Llancarfan, Glamorgan, Wales 1747-1826), an influential antiquarian, poet, collector and literary forger. The name is Welsh for Ned of Glamorgan. Edward Williams spent his working life as a stonemason. It is as Iolo Morganwg that he is remembered, chiefly for his role in (re)creating modern bardic ritual and philosophy. His bardic teacher was Sin Bradford of Tir Iarll. Iolo first came to public notice by revealing some previously undiscovered poetry by Dafydd ap Gwilym, generally considered to be the greatest Welsh poet, in 1789. These poems were in fact forgeries, but survived critical attention for over hundred years. His success lead Iolo to move to London. Become a significant figure in the Welsh community there he held the first Gorsedd, Gorsedd Beirdd Ynys Prydain, at a ceremony in 1792 at Primrose Hill, London. He went on to author fairly substantial works (most of which are now considered forgeries) claiming that the ancient druidic tradition had survived intact in Wales, despite the Roman conquest, Christianity, the persecution of the bards under King Edward I, and other adversities. Iolo's philosophy represented a fusion of Christian and Arthurian influences, a proto-romanticism comparable to that of William Blake and the Scottish poet and forger James MacPherson, the revived antiquarian enthusiasm for all things Celtic, and such elements of bardic heritage as had genuinely survived among Welsh-language poets. Part of his aim was to assert the Welshness of the South, particularly his home region of Glamorgan, against the prevalent idea that North Wales represented the purest survival of Welsh traditions. Iolo was the author of the Druid's Prayer or Gorsedd prayer (Gweddi'r Derwydd or Gweddi'r Orsedd in Welsh), which is still a staple of the ritual of both gorseddau and Neo-Druidism. His metaphysics outlined a theory of concentric 'rings of existence', proceeding outward from Annwn (the Otherworld) through Abred and Ceugant to Gwynfyd (purity or Heaven). Among his writings was Cyfrinach Beirdd Ynys Prydain, or The Mystery of the Bards of the Isle of Britain (1829), a treatise on Welsh metrics. He also forged an extra set of Welsh Triads. Condition: The book has been rebound and consequently the binding is very tight and firm with both covers and all surviving, internal pages attached. There is no visible wear to the extremities. Internally there are new pastedowns and blank-end papers. The title page in addition to the first few pages of the first volume, and page 243 of the second volume, are missing. The first original page is page xix, with pages x to xii following.
