        Luogo Interno Nel Quartiere Degli Strelitzi Notte

      Milan - Aquatint engraving with original hand color. Ca. 1827. Sheet size: 15 x 18 1/4". Inventory#: p509pmat. "Questa scena fu esequita pel quarto atto Del Ballo eroico-mimico Gli Strelitzi inventato e diretto dal Sig. Salvat. Vigano, posto sulle scene dell'I. R. Teatro alla Scala. il Carnevale dell'Anno 1812." As opera reached a height of popularity and innovation in early 19th-century Italy, stage sets and scenery were increasingly viewed as art forms unto themselves. Enterprising artists and designers competed to create the most lavish, evocative, and visually engaging opera settings, and were so successful that their stage sets often competed with the performances themselves for an audience's attention and appreciation. Public criticism of various operas often revolved as much around the quality of the set designs as the beauty of the music, and audiences became increasingly discerning about the visual aspects of grand performances. Reflecting this tendency, Alessandro Sanquirico, a Milanese artist, was inspired to document the most striking sets at Italy's most celebrated opera house, La Scala in Milan. Sanquirico's vividly colored, masterfully drafted aquatint engravings capture the sumptuousness and sheer spectacle of these extravagant sets, often including costumed singers in the midst of a concert, and at the same time the artist brings the excitement of the performance to life in these remarkably vibrant illustrations. 0

        Bell's Life in London, and Sporting Chronicle; Combining, with the News of the Week, A rich Repository of Fashion Wit and Humour and the Interesting Incidents of Real Life

      London: Published at Four O'Clock Every Saturday Afternoon by Messrs. Smith's, 192, Strand, London, Ca 1827. Folio. A four-page advertisement for Bell's paper, printed on two conjugate leaves by B. Bensley, Bolt Court, Fleet Street. First sheet illustrated with numerous sporting subjects in the style of George Cruikshank. Fine, fresh copy. Patten, George Cruikshank, I, pp. 300-301 et seq . Bell's Life in London was a rival to Pierce Egan's Life in London and Sporting Guide, an offshoot of his highly successful book. Egan began his periodical in 1824 as a Sunday weekly, and in 1826 asked Cruikshank to design some wood engravings to head the paper's regular features, which increased its circulation. Some Cruikshank designs were subsequently used, without the artist's consent, by Bell's paper, and in 1827 Egan, unable to achieve the success of his competitor, sold out to Bell, who merged the two journals into one. Bell's was a conspicuous success: it sold as many as sixteen thousand copies weekly to the poorest classes. This advertisement, in addition to its lively cover of over twenty woodcuts, features a number of poetical effusions to Royalty, the Nobility, Members of Parliament, the Clergy, the Army and Navy, the Commercial, Agricultural and Theatrical Worlds, and, of course, Sportsmen of Every Degree The advertisement is not a part of Bell's periodical, but was a separately issued publication to promote circulation

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Wien, 14. XI. 1827. - 1 S. und 2 Zeilen auf 1 Bl. 4to. An Franz Xaver von Peball, den Verweser des Kommunitäts-Radwerks Nr. VI in Vordernberg (Steiermark): "Das ist doch etwas ganz neues mitten in einem halben Jahre den Preis vermindern zu wollen, und ich bin froh daß die mehrheit der Stimmen dagegen war. Ich hatte darüber mit dem Vorsteher gesprochen und wir waren übereingekommen, nicht vor dem Jahreswechsel etwas zu thun, sondern wenn es die Umstände Erforderten erst nach dem neuen Jahre auf den Preis von 3 f M. M. oder höchstens auf 8 f. Papiergeld zu steigen dann aber wieder fest Jahrlang zu bleiben; mir scheint daß er ganz darauf vergessen hat - [D]ie Stimme der Gratzer Eisenhändler ist eine sehr befangene und diese könne nie unsere Richtschnur werden da ihre Geschäfte ihre frühere Bedeutenheit [!] verlohren [!] und für uns der Platz Wienn [!] weit wichtiger ist. Dieses ewige Schwanken schadet nur dem Hammer Gewerkes und dadurch den für uns nothwendigen schnelleren und wichtigeren Zahlungen. Ich verstehe nicht wie so plötzliche Entschlüße entstehen da doch die möglichen einzutrettenden Umstände von jedem der seine Rechnung führet und sich um Getreidepreise [etc.] bekümmert vorgesehen werden könne; ob nicht andere Ausgaben des Hauswesens eine plötzliche Klassensteigerung Erfordern daß will ich nicht beurtheilen. Recht gut ist es daß Sie in meinem Namen sich dieser Steigerung wiedersezten [!] [.]". - Erzherzog Johann, der 1822 das Vordernberger Radgewerk Nr. 2 erworben hatte, sollte bis zum Ende des Jahrzehnts die anderen ortsansässigen Radmeister vom Eintritt in eine "Bergunion" überzeugen, deren Gründungsvertrag heute als eigentliches Gründungsdokument der Oesterreichisch-Alpine Montangesellschaft (ÖAMG) gilt, aus der im vergangenen Jahrhundert die Vereinigten Österreichischen Eisen- und Stahlwerke (VÖEST) und später die Voestalpine AG hervorgehen sollte. - Etwas gebräunt und mit starken Randläsuren.

        Capture of Le Sparviere, May 3rd 1810

      London, James Jenkins 1827 - Thomas Whitcombe (1763-1824) The Naval Achievements of Great Britain From the Year 1793 to 1817 London, James Jenkins: 1817 Hand-colored aquatint engraving 11" x 14" English artist Thomas Whitcombe is considered one of the foremost painters of maritime art and the French Revolutionary wars, with works standing today in the Tate, the National Gallery and the National Maritime Museum. Whitcombe painted over 150 works detailing the affairs of English fleets during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, including his contribution of 55 watercolors for The Naval Achievements of Great Britain, From the Year 1793 to 1817, published in 1817 under James Jenkins. For its time, The Naval Achievements of Great Britain was unprecedented in its accuracy, giving the most precise written and pictorial accounts of naval life over a period of 20 years. Never before had a publisher attempted such a complete volume of documentary naval images. Together Whitcombe and fellow marine artist Nicolas Pocock contributed the 55 watercolors for the folio. This selection of hand-colored aquatints from the volume features some of the most historically important and visually stimulating images from these battles.

      Paris 1827 - Pierre Joseph Redoute (1759-1840) Illustrated sheet from Choix des Plus Belles Fleurs Paris: 1827-1833 Hand-colored stipple engraving Sheet size: 12 1/2" x 9 3/4" The works of the great botanical artist Pierre-Joseph Redoute (1759-1840) seem to demand the invention of lofty praise. Described both as the “Rembrandt” and the “Raphael” of Flowers by nineteenth century writers, Redoute occupies a central position in the development of European botanical art. Born into a family of artists, Redoute’s talents were recognized and encouraged from an early age. He studied botany with the noted naturalist Heritier de Brutelle, and learned the technique of painting in watercolor on vellum from Gerard van Spaendonck, Flower Painter to the King. By this master painter’s own account, his pupil’s work was finer. Redoute had, as pupils or patrons, five queens and empresses of France, from Marie Antoinette to Empress Josephine and her successor, Marie-Louise. Despite many changes of regime in this turbulent epoch, he worked without interruption, eventually contributing to over fifty books on natural history and archeology. The luminosity of stipple engraving is particularly suited to the reproduction of botanical detail. It is essentially a technique of etching a copper plate with a dense grid of dots that can be modulateto convey delicate gradations of color and tone. The plates were painted with watercolor before each impression, creating a rich and subtle color quality that is deeply pressed into the paper. The most delicate highlights and details are then added by hand to finish each print according to the exquisite watercolor models that Redoute provided. This complex and delicate printing process combines the technical virtuosity and aesthetic sensitivity that characterize Redoute’s remarkable body of work.

This complex and delicate printing process combines the technical virtuosity and aesthetic sensitivity that characterize Redoute's remarkable body of work. The Choix des Plus Belles Fleurs is one of Redoute's last, and most personal works. It is a selection of favorite flowers and fruits by a master who had devoted a lifetime to the art of botanical illustration. The images include spectacular blossoms plucked from formal gardens, as well as the more modest blooms of wayside flowers. These small and richly colored plates convey an intimate sense of beauty that sets them apart from other botanical works.

        Essai sur les maladies de l'oreille interne.

      Paris, Baillière, Lyon, Maire, 1827. - in-8, (4), 284 pp., 1 planche dépl. h.t., demi-percaline brune du temps, petit manque de papier sur le plat supérieur, intérieur en très bon état. Edition originale et seule édition française, très rare. Il s'agit d'un ouvrage posthume, publié par M. Moutain (Saissy "se disposait à mettre au jour son ouvrage, fortifié par l'expérience et le succès de sa pratique, lorsque la mort vint l'arracher à la science"). Il s'agit de l'un des meilleurs ouvrages d'otologie de cette époque traitant non seulement des maladies de l'oreille interne, mais aussi de celles du tympan et de la trompe d'Eustache. Saissy décrit une bougie pour la trompe d'Eustache et fut probablement le premier à utiliser cet instrument. La planche illustre "la sonde du docteur Saissy dans ses rapports avec les fosses nasales et la trompe d'Eustache". Jean-Antoine Saissy (1756-1822), d'origine modeste, étudia la médecine à Paris, fut interne à Lyon, puis agrégé au Collège des chirurgiens. Après avoir servi dans la compagnie royale d'Afrique, il se fixa à Lyon, où il eut une clientèle considérable. Garrison & Morton, 3365 ; A.

Contemporary three-quarter green straight-grain morocco, with marbled papercovered boards, spine decorated and titled in gilt. Very slight rubbing to the joints, a couple of faint spots on the foredge, bottom corner of the title page has a little professional restoration affecting no text, a nice, near fine copy. The author's second book, and only novel, something of a potboiler that contained tales of pirates and fierce Indian attacks with long passages of life in rural Tennessee. Royall, disappointed by the reaction to this novel, returned to writing travel books, eventually completing ten such books of some importance. Grolier Club. Emerging Voices. American Women Writers 1650-1920, pp. 20-21; James. Anne Royall's U.S.A.; Wright I, 2257; Sabin 73825. .

        Allgemeine und spezielle Pathologie und Therapie der Seelenstörungen. Frei bearbeitet von K.H.Hille. Nebst einem Anhang kritischer und erläuternder Zusätze von J.C.A. Heinroth.

      . Leipzig, Hartmann, 1827, 8°, XXII, 647 pp. mit 11 Steindrucktafeln, feiner Halbleder der Zeit; sehr sauberes, sehr schönes Exemplar.. Erste deutsche Ausgabe! - Etienne Esquirol war der prominenteste Schüler von Phillippe Pinel (1745-1826), des berühmten Reformers der Irrenheilkunde. Mit Pinel war Etienne Esquirol (1722-1840) der Begründer der französischen Schule der Psychiatrie. Esquirol hat erstmalig statistische Methoden in die psychiatrische Forschung eingeführt und die humanistischen Ideen seines Lehrers zur Anwendung gebracht. Er gilt als Schöpfer und Begründer der modernen Irrenheilkunde. Sein Lehrbuch der Geisteskrankheiten war fast für ein halbes Jahrundert die Bibel der Psychiatrie. Der beigefügte Tafelteil bildet die erste wichtige Ikonographie der Irrenheilkunde. Von ganz besonderem Interesse sind die "..erläuternden Zusätze" von Heinroth (1773-1843), die Seiten 535 bis 647 umfassend. Neben seinem "Lehrbuch" einer der wichtigsten Beiträge des großen Psychiaters. - "The subsequent terminology or separation of the specific types of epilepsy developed gradually in the Nineteenth Century. J.E. Esquirol, psychiatrist at the Salpetriere, wrote in 1815 that attacks alternate in intensity and that there are severe or slight attacks which he (1838) called "le grand mal" and "le petit mal". Although grand mal meant a generalized convulsion, the meaning of petit mal remained vague". McHenry, p.390 - Waller 2816; cf. Garrison & Morton 4929 + 4798; Hunter & Macalpine, 731-738; Selesnick, 137-138; Heirs of Hipp. 1268

Man sprach viel von Theodor, von unserer Oper, die immer schlechter wird, von dem unversäglichen Verlust, den wir an unserer angebeteten Nany erlitten haben, man tadelte den Intendanten, welcher daran schuld ist, und wünscht sie wieder zurück. Prieli lobte sie ausserordentlich und erzählte von ihrem glänzenden Succes in Wien, von wo er wöchentlich Briefe erhält. Er sagte, daß Sie in Berlin und Paris weit mehr als die Sontag gefallen werden. Was Italien betrifft, so könnten Sie besonders als Musico dort Ihr Glück machen, doch habe er Ihnen selbst in Wien den Rath gegeben, Sich dahin nicht durch Dupont engagieren zu lassen, weil dieser ein eigennütziger und karger Mann wäre, sondern unmittelbar mit Barbaja selbst, welcher sehr generös und liberal ist und Ihr Verdienst gemäß zu schätzen wissen wird, da er diesen Winter nach Wien kömmt [.] Vorige Woche hat man hier die Vestalin aufgeführt, wo die Stern die Rolle der Oberpriesterin abscheulich verhunzte [.] Nächsten drohet man uns mit dem Barbier von Sevilla im Deutschen [.]". - Weiter mit hochinteressanten Theaterneuigkeiten und kollegialem Tratsch. - Papierbedingt etwas gebräunt.

'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.
