      - Pinsel in Grau, über Bleistift, auf gelblichem Velin, links unten monogrammiert und datiert „18 AA (ligiert) 36." sowie mit brauner Feder bezeichnet „A. Achenbach.". 12,1:19 cm. Verso am oberen Rand und den unteren Ecken Reste alter Verklebung. Provenienz: Sammlung Adolf Gruis, Berlin, nicht bei Lugt. Andreas Achenbach, Bruder von Oswald Achenbach (1827-1905), zählt sicher zu den bekanntesten deutschen Landschaftsmalern des 19. Jahrhunderts. Nach einer Ausbildung an der Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf als Schüler von W. von Schadow (1788-1862), wo er anschließend auch seine ersten Erfolge in der Öffentlichkeit erzielte, war vor allem eine Studienreise gemeinsam mit seinem Vater an die Ost- und Nordsee 1832-1833 prägend. Hier setzte er sich intensiv mit holländischen Landschafts- und Marinemalern auseinander. Fortan bildeten Meeres- und Küstenbilder zentrale Motive in seinem Schaffen. Für nahezu alle deutschen Marinemaler seiner Zeit hatte er Vorbildfunktion.

[He] spent the first eighteen years of his life in the city of London, where his father, an American whose parents were Dutch, was a fringe-maker in Newgate Street. As a child he showed an aptitude for handling both whip and pencil. Having married against his father's wishes, he went, without settled plans, to Doncaster, where he arrived during the races in September 1814, and saw the Duke of Hamilton's horse William win the St. Ledger. The sight inspired him to attempt the art of animal-painting, in which he subsequently excelled. At first he did not success as an animal-painter, but executed some satisfactory work in coach-painting, which led him to aspire to drive a coach. For two years he drove the Nelson coach from Wakefield to Lincoln. He was afterwards transferred to the Doncaster and Halifax coach. While he was engaged on that road, his artistic powers, which he continually exercised, were discovered and appreciated, and he received many commissions to paint horses for gentlemen in the neighbourhood. Inspite of increasing success as a painter of horses, he refused to hurriedly abandon his calling as coachman, and for some time drove the Highflyer coach between London and York.

        Der alte Jacob mit der neuen Mütze - Peter, Nicolaus, Catharina und Michael wundern sich, daß der Bruder Jacob bei hohem Alter und schwachen Füssen noch eine so schwere und bunte Mütze tragen will.

      . Lithographie, um 1827, 21 x 14,5 (H) Blattgr.: 33,5 x 21cm. Einblattdruck. Sehr seltene Karikatur als frühe Lithographie auf die Hamburger Hauptkirchen St. Michaelis, St. Peter, St. Katharinen, St. Jakob und St. Nikolai, die heute auch (wieder) die Silhouette der Hansestadt maßgeblich bestimmen. Hintergrund war ein Aufruf an die Hamburger zur Erneuerung des Turmhelms der Hauptkirche St. Jacobi. Ein Kirchspiel sollte die Reparaturkosten für den kuppelförmigen Renaissance-Turmhelm einspielen, was jedoch nicht funktionierte und somit wurde der Helm schon 1810 zum Abbruch verkauft. Der Architekt Hermann Peter Fersenfeldt (1786-1853) ersetzte den Helm durch einen oktogonalen, mehrgeschossigen Aufsatz, der am 2. August 1827 fertiggestellt worden war. Tatsächlich wurde angezweifelt, dass der mittelalterliche Backstein-Turmstumpf die Laste tragen könnte, so wird der nach vorne aus der Reihe seiner Turmnachbarn - altertümlich barock gekleidete Herrschaften der wohlhabenden Hamburger Bürgerwelt mit Turmaufbauten auf den Köpfen - heraustretende St. Jakob als älterer Mann mit zwei Krücken dargestellt, mit Hilfe derer er den großen Turm auf seinem Haupte balanciert. Mehrfach geknickt und Knickspurig, leicht gebräunt und minimal fleckig, rechter Rand mit roten Schnittfarbenflecken, kaum Randläsuren, schönes Blatt.

        Memoire sur les integrales definies [AND] Memoire sur la theorie de la propagation des ondes a la surface d'un fluide pesant...

      . Paris, Memoires des Savans Etrangers, Academie des Sciences, 1827. 4to. In a fine contemporary full calf binding. Spine with five raised bands, red and black morocco title vignettes and gilt floral patterns; boards with dentelles; lightly red-speckled edges.l Two large and very important papers by Cauchy, contained in the first volume of the Memoires. The most important paper is Cauchy's cornerstone essay on definite integrals. It is essential in the history of mathematics, partly laying the basis for the Cauchy-Riemann equations. "In 1814 he submitted to the French Academy the treatise on definite integrals that was to become the basis of the theory of complex functions. In 1816 he won a prize contest of the French Academy on the propagation of waves at the surface of a liquid; his results are now classics in hydrodynamics." (DSB) Cauchy's method was significant because of his departure from the traditional use of geometry to treat the definite integral. The theory was read to the Academy by Cauchy in 1814, but only published in 1827 in this volume on pp. 599-799 and includes the rapport, introduction, parts 1 and 2, and two supplements. The second paper, on the "propagation des ondes a la surface" is on pp. 3-313. This volume also contains a memoir on the "theorie de la lune" by Damoiseau. Provenance: pictorial bookplate of the Radcliffe Observatory (the astronomical observatory of the University of Oxford from 1773 until 1934) on the front pastedown. Some small, skilful repairs, doing justice to an unusually fine and elegant contemporary binding. DSB III, pp. 137-138..

        Personal Narrative of a Journey from India to England, by Bussorah, Bagdad, the Ruins of Babylon, Curdistan, the Court of Persia, the Western Shore of the Caspian Sea, Astrakhan, Nishney Novogorod, Moscow, and St Petersburgh, in the Year 1824 Second Edi

      Two volumes. London: Henry Colburn, 1827. Two volumes. 8vo, original gray boards, printed paper backstrip labels, in new gray buckram double slipcase. xii, 336; vii, 326, 10(ads) pp. Two frontispieces and one plate, all hand-colored lithographs; folding lithographic map with route marked in red; and eight woodcut illustrations in text. Covers rubbed and soiled, joints cracked, backstrip labels chipped, front hinges reinforced with archival tape; fresh and clean within. Second Edition; three editions of this work appeared in 1827. George Thomas Keppel (1799-1821), who became the sixth Earl of Albemarle in 1851, was an aide-de-camp to the British governor general in India from 1821 to 1823, when he was given leave to return home overland. Along the way he visited the ruins of Babylon and the court of Teheran, Persia; and he passed through numerous little-known areas of Turkey and Russia. The book is not common, especially in original boards: only five of the 23 copies of all three editions sold at auction since 1976 were in boards. The Blackmer copy was a third edition in half calf -- but inscribed -- ; and the Atabey copy was a second edition in quarter calf. The present volumes were signed on the front pastedowns by one Hedworth Williamson in Florence in 1827; he also initialed and dated the upper front covers. In 1831 Sir Hedworth Williamson was elected to Parliament from Durham County. [Atabey 631. Blackmer 908.

        Descripcion de las plantas que D. Antonio Josef Cavanilles demostró en las lecciones públicas del año 1801

      Madrid: Imprenta Real, after, 1827. Thick octavo, some spots and wear, missing first title-page; very good in contemporary mottled calf, flat spine gilt, front hinge worn, a few bumps. Australian plants in the botanical gardens of Madrid. An account of the exotic plants known in 1802 by the great Spanish botanist Antonio José Cavanilles in his role as director of the Madrid Botanical Garden. This work includes early notice of a series of Australian plants, notably including those collected on the Malaspina voyage, but is also of significance as a de facto plant catalogue of the Madrid collection.There were at least two issues of this work, in 1802 and then in 1827: this copy, missing its title-page but otherwise identical to the 1827 issue (with the errata corrected), would most likely have been issued later again, the title-page discarded.The Malaspina expedition, which visited Port Jackson in 1793, had two professional botanists on board, Luis Née and Thaddeus Haenke. The two men made collections at all of their ports of call including around Sydney, and on their return gave all of the notes and specimens to Cavanilles, who described the material in his very rare Icones et Descriptiones Plantarum (1791-1801). From 1801 Cavanilles was the director at Madrid Botanical Garden, and this work is a direct result of the appointment, in which he made a careful survey with extensive notes of the plants being grown there in the form of a synthesis and guide to published specimens.Malaspina's expedition to the South Seas had been of great importance, but the commander's enemies at court ensured that no account appeared in print. A private account (by the ensign Viana) was published in Montevideo in 1849, but no trace of any official accoutn appeared in Spain until a very abridged narrative of 1885. Cavanilles' work thus has even further importance as one of the earliest notices of any results of the voyage.The work begins with a brief prologue by Cavanilles dated 1 March 1802 in which he describes his appointment to the Garden (pp. iii-vi), and this is followed by a lengthy introduction on the principles of botany (pp. vii-cxxxvi). The remainder of the work is a list of over a thousand plants with notes, including references to Cavanilles' own Icones, but also the work of friends and colleagues such as James Edward Smith, Bougainville's botanist Philibert Commerson, and particularly the work of Née on the Malaspina voyage. There are references to many other botanists and their publications, including the British journals then being published such as Curtis' Botanical Magazine.Written just before the great explosion in knowledge about Australian plants which can be dated to around 1805 and the publication of Smith & Sowerby's Exotic Botany, there is nonetheless an impressive selection of some 29 Australian plants, notably eight different varieties of banksia, but also an Australian Lambertia, Proteas from around Port Jackson, several Hakea and various other specimens, most of which are sporting long outdated nomenclature. Cavanilles, for example, lists five varieties of "Embothrium" from New Holland - in doing so he was merely following the lead of James Edward Smith, who thought that Australian plants including the waratah were of this species. There is also notice of 24 plants from the Cape of Good Hope. Perhaps the biggest selection, unsurprisingly, comes from "Nueva-Espana", that is, central America; at least one (no. 1086) is specifically listed as from as far north as Monterey.

        Voyage à Peking, à travers la Mongolie en 1820 et 1821

      Paris: Dondey-Dupré Père et Fils, , 1827. Traduit du Russe par M. N******, revu par M. J.-B. Eyriès. Publié avec des corrections et des notes par M. J. Klaproth. 2 volumes octavo text (201 × 122 mm), folio atlas (313 × 235 mm) containing the map, plans and plates; text volumes in contemporary green quarter sheep, matching marbled boards, title gilt direct to the spine, edges sprinkled blue, marbled endpapers, atlas recently bound to match. Atlas volume containing large folding lithographed route map, plan of Forbidden City, folding plate of the Russian Embassy at Peking, 8 lithographed plates - mostly after Chinese oil or gouache originals - and a title-page vignette. Half-titles to the text volumes bound in. Boards of text volumes restored, light browning throughout, but a overall very good set. First edition. Since the early 18th century the Russians had by treaty maintained a school and a church in Peking. The terms also allowed them to send a mission once every ten years to change the personnel. At the time no other Western nation had the same opportunities to study the country and its people. "In particular, his description and mapping of the dual route through the Gobi Desert, which he crossed from Kiachta to Beijing , added richly to the information gathered by his predecessors" (Henze). Also, published here for the first time in the West, is a map of the Forbidden City. The text is here corrected and annotated by the great German orientalist Julius Heinrich Klaproth, who spent many years in service of the Russian Academy of Sciences, accompanying Golovkin's embassy to China of 1805, and carrying out important linguistic and ethnographical surveys in the Caucasus in 1808-9. After his resignation from the Russian Academy, following an exile enforced by the Napoleonic wars, he eventually settled in Paris, where, after the intercession of Humboldt, he received a pension to continue his work and to publish from the French capital. Tipped into the plate atlas is a letter to Klaproth in Berlin in the rather decrepit hand of the celebrated anthropologist, naturalist, physiologist, historian and bibliographer Johann Friedrich Blumenbach, from Göttingen, 8 October 1812. Blumenbach writes as secretary of the Königliche Societät der Wissenschaften zu Göttingen to thank Klaproth for the "generous gift of 130 Asiatic coins", and to tell him that he has "been elected a corresponding member of the Society's Historical Class. I have already had your diploma prepared and am waiting for an opportunity to send it to you." Interestingly Klaproth has evidently been attempting to sell the Society a number of books (the coins perhaps as sweeteners?). "The important collection of Chinese books which Your Honour offers to sell to us … the two Chinese dictionaries and notes for the pronunciation, plus the annals of the Chinese realm, we should like to incorporate into our public library, provided they can be separately acquired. If so, I shall await your gracious reply." This accompanied by a clearer, contemporary German transcription and a translation into French. An extremely appealing copy of a far from common work.

      London: Geo. B. Whittaker. 1827-1835. "16 volumes, imperial 8vo, complete in all respects (excepting the plate list in volume III which is wanting), with 798 copperplates, 673 of them hand-colored or partially hand-colored (some heightened with gum arabic), 1 double-page, and 1 folding table; collated complete, viz: Mammalia, 1827: 5 volumes, 210 copperplates, 186 hand-colored; Aves, 1829: 3 volumes, 160 copperplates (1 double-page), 145 hand-colored; Reptiles, 1831: 55 copperplates, 48 hand-colored; Pisces, 1834: 64 copperplates, 60 hand-colored; Fossils, 1830: 49 copperplates (11 folding), 1 folding table; Mollusca, 1834: 60 copperplates, 54 hand-colored; Annelida, 1833: 60 copperplates, 59 hand-colored; Insecta, 1832: 2 volumes, 140 copperplates, 121 hand-colored; Index, 1835. A nice set in contemporary quarter green calf over marbled boards, maroon and olive lettering pieces on spines; minor rubbing; very good and sound. With the armorial bookplate of Frederic Glyn, 4th Baron Wolverton (1864-1932, MP and banker) in each volume. Nissen 1015; Printing and the Mind of Man, 276 (citing the 4- volume French edition of 1817): ""[Cuvier] laid the foundations of comparative anatomy, just as in Researches on Fossil Remains (1812) he had advanced the science of palaeontology...The material provided by Cuvier gave opportunity for greater theorists to produce better answers."" Enter Edward Griffith (1790-1858), the British naturalist and one of the original members of the Zoological Society who revised, amended and augmented Cuvier's groundbreaking work. The outcome is virtually an entirely new work, and as such, The Animal Kingdom was the finest work of its kind in English, until Darwin. Among the other contributors were Major Charles Hamilton Smith, John Edward Gray, and Edward Pidgeon. "

        Mysterium magnum. An exposition of the first book of Moses called Genesis. Concerning the manifestation or revelation of the divine word through the three principles of the divine essence; also of the originall of the world and the creation. Wherein the kingdome of nature, & the kingdome of grace, are expounded. For the better understanding of the Old and New Testament. . . .

      With 2 engraved plates on either side of one sheet. Both Durand Hotham?s Life of the Author and the four tables have separate title pages. Full calf in a contemporary style, gilt decorations on covers, spine in compartments with gilt title and decorations; signature of James Bidell on title dated 1827, some browning and spotting, but overall a very good copy. First Edition in English of Boehme?s masterpiece, a mystical interpretation of Genesis. As a young man, Boehme experienced a mystical vision revealing the spiritual structure of the universe as well as the relationships between good and evil and God and man. His focus on the vision of the spiritual universe supports his detailed discussion of the first book of the Old Testament. Now quite rare, Boehme became highly influential in intellectual circles of Protestant Europe, especially in England and Holland. His interests in Paracelsus, the Kabbala, alchemy and the Hermetic tradition are clearly part of the foundation of his writing. His first written work, Aurora, went unfinished, but drew to him a small circle of followers. He has since influenced major figures in philosophy, especially German Romantics such as Hegel, Baader, and Schelling. His influence can be also be traced to the work of Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, and Heidegger. Martin Buber drew heavily from his work, as did Carl Jung, who made numerous references to Boehme in his writings. An intuitive genius, Boehme was one of the great mystical mind of the Rosicrucian period (1610 - 1625). Boehme (1575 - 1624) completed this work in 1623, and died the following year. He was highly influential on generations of mystics, especially of the English school. Societies of Behmenites were formed in England (he was referred to Behmen in England); many of them were later absorbed by the Quakers.

      Stuttgart und Tübingen, Cotta, 1827 - 1836. - 5 Tabellen und 1 Tafel, 1 Porträt sowie 77 Tafeln (in Kupfer- bzw. Stahlstich). Erste Ausgabe der sogenannten "Taschenausgabe" letzter Hand, die von Goethe unter Mitwirkung von Göttling, Eckermann und Riemer sorgfältig ediert wurde, mit den Nachgelassenen Werken und dem Register von Carl Theodor Musculus. - Hagen 23 C1 und Hagen 24c. Leopold Hirschberg, Seltsames von Goethe letzte Hand S. 497 ff. Goedecke IV, 626 C1. W.-G. 141. - Die komplette Ausgabe letzter Hand des Johann Wolfgang von Goethe mit den oft fehlenden separat erschienen Kupfertafeln bzw. Stahlstichtafeln. Die Bände 41 bis 60 sind erst nach Goethes Tod unter dem Titel "Nachgelassene Werke" - mit dem Untertitel als Bde. 51 bis 60 bezeichnet - erschienen. Diese "Nachgelassenen Werke" fehlen in den meisten Exemplaren, noch seltener ist der ebenfalls fehlende Band "Inhalts- und Namen-Verzeichnisse . verfertigt von Carl Theodor Musculus", der als Bd. 61 gezählt wird. Die Ausgabe letzter Hand erschien mit und ohne Tafeln. Wobei das Porträt Goethes (in der vorliegenden Ausgabe in Bd. 60 eingebunden) und die geologische Tafel zu Bd. 51 auch in der Ausgabe "ohne Tafeln" vorhanden sein sollte. In der Ausgabe "mit Tafeln" sollten 55 sogenannte Titelkupfer (die öfters auch in Stahlstich ausgeführt sind) vorhanden sein. Von diesen 55 Titelkupfern sind in der vorliegenden Ausgabe 52 vorhanden, es fehlen die Titelkupfer zu den Bdn. 12, 14 und 49. Weiters erschienen noch 25 Tafeln, die fast gänzlich unbekannt geblieben sind. Leopold Hirschberg hat in dem oben erwähnten Aufsatz erstmals auf diese Tafeln hingewiesen. Diese auch bei Hagen 24 e erwähnten Tafeln entstanden vermutlich für den Vertrieb in Österreich und gelten allgemein als von größter Seltenheit. Unter diesen Tafeln befinden sich vier - bis zum Auffinden durch Hirschberg - unbekannte Kupfer des Moritz von Schwind. Von diesen sind in der vorliegenden Ausgabe 24 vorhanden, es fehlt eines der vier Schwind Kupfer "Die Wahlverwandschaften". Stattdessen ist ein bei Hirschberg nicht verzeichnetes Blatt "Die schöne Melusine" in Bd. 23 nach M. Retzsch eingebunden. Im vorliegenden Exemplar wurde versucht die Tafeln thematisch richtig einzubinden und nicht nach den Bandangaben. - Der Band 17 neu - im Stile der anderen Bände - gebunden. Durchgehend leicht fleckig und gebräunt, vereinzelt etw. stärker fleckig bzw. wasserrandig. Sprache: de Gewicht in Gramm: 0 12°. HLdr. des 19.

        The Trials of John Duncan White alias Charles Marchant, and Winslow Curtis alias Sylvester Colson, for The Murder on The Hugh Seas of Edward Selfridge and Thomas P. Jenkins, Captain and Mate of The Schooner Fairy, of Boston (and) The Confession of Winslow Curtis... Voluntarily made and Sworn to by the Prisoner

      Boston: Dutton and Wentworth, 1827. 176; 15, (1) pp.b/w facsimile illustration. "White and Curtis mutinied, killing the captain and mate with an ax and throwing them overboard. They took the vessel to Louisburg, Nova Scotia, where they scuttled it. Captured and brought back to Boston, they were condemned, but White cheated the hangman by doing the job himself in his cell the night before the execution. Curtis was turned off officially and his body was given to a Dr. Webster (!) who created appalling effects with it and an electric battery." McDade 1087, 1088. Sabin, 103418. The "Confession," as noted by McDade in "The Annals of Murder" contains a note about the suicide of Curtis's partner, White. Scarce in the trade, with only a couple of POD editions available online. Two volumes, bound together and removed from larger binding, without wrappers or covers. Back blank foxed and stained. Still in good condition.
