        The Hobart Town Almanack for the year 1829

      Hobart Town, 1828. 24mo, six engraved plates in total, including two engraved titles (for the alamanac and the calendar) both with vignettes, two engraved signals plates (one coloured) and two other engraved views; contemporary red roan, gilt; bookplate of Bernard Gore Brett. With fine engravings by Thomas Bock. The first and rarest of Ross's Tasmanian almanacs, in a very attractive binding.Four of the engraved plates, including the two views of the "Fall of the Derwent" and "Macquarie Street, Hobart Town", are engraved by Thomas Bock after originals by G. Frankland; the other two are noted only as being engraved by Bock. Thomas Bock had arrived in Hobart in January 1824, and despite being a convict, almost immediately began working as an engraver. Now most famous for the work he did for Lady Franklin engraving portraits of some Tasmanian Aborigines, the present almanac is some of his earliest work. The artist George Frankland was in the colony as a surveyor, having arrived in mid-1827, and took part in several journeys of exploration.The almanac also includes a most interesting "Descriptive Itinerary of Van Diemen's Land" (pp. 33-77).

        Sketch of the Life of Alexander Wilson, author of the American Ornithology.

      Philadelphia: Published by Harrison Hall, 1828. - ORD, George (4 Mar. 1781-24 Jan. 1866). Sketch of the Life of Alexander Wilson, author of the American Ornithology. Philadelphia: Published by Harrison Hall, 1828. 8vo., (9 6/8 x 6 inches). (Some occasional spotting). Original muslin backed drab paper boards, printed paper label on the spine, uncut (lower cover nearly detached, covers spotted, early newspaper clippings laid down on the front endpapers). Provenance: PRESENTATION COPY, inscribed on the title-page "To Col. C.C. Biddle with the respects of the Author". FIRST EDITION AND PRESENTATION COPY. As a young man Ord became a protege of Alexander Wilson, creator of the celebrated "American Ornithology; or, The Natural History of the Birds of the United States". "After Wilson's death in 1813, Ord completed the eighth volume of the Ornithology. In 1814 he published the ninth and final volume from Wilson's notes and added a biography of his friend, which he later expanded into the book Sketch of the Life of Alexander Wilson (1828; repr. 1871).Despite his many personal accomplishments, Ord is best remembered for his animosity toward Wilson's most famous ornithological rival, John James Audubon. As Wilson's close friend, biographer, and executor, Ord may have felt threatened by Audubon's considerable talent when he burst onto the ornithological scene a decade after Wilson's death. After their first meeting at the Academy of Natural Sciences in 1824, Ord aggressively campaigned against Audubon, using his significant influence to try to prevent Audubon from realizing success in scientific circles in the United States and abroad. Famed for his sharp tongue in defaming others, Ord made many assertions about Audubon's morals, intelligence, and integrity that today would almost certainly be considered libelous. In letters to friends and associates, he called the younger naturalist a "charlatan," an "impudent pretender," and a "contemptible imposter." To Charles Lucien Bonaparte, the influential ornithologist and nephew of Napoleon, Ord declared Audubon's Ornithological Biography "the biggest hodgepodge of stupidity and lies that I have ever seen." Though his campaign was unsuccessful in the end, it caused Audubon great distress and slowed his acceptance by some members of the scientific community" (Robert McCracken Peck for DNB). In 1859 Ord contributed chapters on eminent Philadelphians Clement Cornell Biddle, and his father Colonel Clement Biddle in "Eminent Philadelphians now Deceased. Collected from Original and Authentic Sources", 1859. The younger Biddle, to whom this example of Ord's biography of Wilson was presented, was born in, 1784, went to sea in 1800, then studied to became a lawyer before "the attack upon the Chesapeake frigate occurring about this time, the whole nation was aroused to an assertion of its rights against the pretensions of Great Britain; and, having a predilection for a military life, he accepted a commission, as Captain of dragoons, from President Jefferson, and was stationed with his regiment at New Orleans. The excitement was. however, temporarily lulled, and Mr. Biddle resigned his commission. But when war was declared against Great Britain, in 1812, he originated, in his native city, the company of volunteers known as the State Fencibles, of which company he was elected Captain, in July, 1812. Although just married, and in circumstances by no means opulent, he gave his whole time and abilities, during the continuance of the war, to the service of his country. On the organization of the First Regiment of Volunteer Light Infantry, of the Pennsylvania line, he was elected Colonel. In the autumn of 1814 his regiment was stationed at Camp Dupont, in the State of Delaware; but, owing to the retreat of the enemy from Baltimore, it was never actively engaged. Upon the restoration of peace, Mr. Biddle returned to Philadelphia, and was appointed by the Governor a Notary Public, which office he exercised for several years.Upon the assembling of the Free Trade C [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        THE CASKET OR FLOWERS OF LITERATURE, WIT AND SENTIMENT. The School of Flora

      This volume of the CASKET, which was published monthly, includes the full year from January to December of 1828. It is of particular interest because it includes the "New Series" of "The School of Flora," written by the famous Franco-American botanist Constantine Samuel Rafinesque, "Perhaps the most colorful and controversial naturalist in nineteenth century America..." (see Ziser, M. "Constantine Samuel Rafinesque " in Patterson, D, ed. EARLY AMERICAN NATURE WRITERS, p.295). The series began in 1827 and was published in both the monthly CASKET and the weekly Saturday Evening Post, both of which were owned by the publisher Atkinson. By the end of 1828 a total of 66 flower studies had been published, each with a separate illustration. Rafinesque identified the flower by its botanical, English and French names, and provided a general description of the plant's properties, often including its medicinal and horticultural uses along with its floral history. Significantly, each of the 66 entries concludes with an emblematic meaning being ascribed to the plant. "These pieces with flower meanings ran from 1827 to the end of 1828, and thus probably constitute the first language of flowers published (and created) in America." (Seaton, B. THE LANGUAGE OF FLOWERS/ A HISTORY p. 85) Forty-two of these emblems appeared in 1827 while the remaining 24 appear in the present volume. Some additional entries for the" School of Flora" appeared in later years, but these do not include floral emblems. In this 1828 volume, which begins the "New Series," the first 10 botanical entries are illustrated two to a page on a separate sheet opposite the relevant text; the remaining 14 combine illustration and text on the same page . According to Seaton, some of the wood engravings are original, while others were taken by Rafinesque from Bigelow's AMERICAN MEDICAL BOTANY (1817-20) or Barton' s VEGETABLE MATERIA MEDICA (1817-18) (Seaton also notes that some of the images are reversed, suggesting the use of camera lucida). The actual nature of this language of flowers, however, appears to be unique to Rafinesque. Many of the plants are native to the North American continent, some probably observed during Rafinesque's botanizing travels between Kentucky and Pennsylvania. The emblems assigned are often negative or strictly practical. There is little that mimics the European language of flowers (and, according to Seaton, nothing suggesting that Rafinesque consulted a lot of other texts) while there is much that suggests a new floral language of love especially suited to the American character. Underscoring this is Rafinesque's known disappointment in love, and his hardships and losses in the New World. The American cranberry stands for Sour Temper; the alpine silverleaf for War; the Soapwort gentian for Bitter Reproof; the Missouri poppy, Presumption, etc. However, the traditional emblem of the moss rose, Female Beauty, remains. There is a great deal of additional general content in the Casket, from engravings and biographies of early presidents to extracts from literature, travel, and word games such as the "Puzzler." There are additional wood-engravings in the text included in each issue which show views of mostly East Coast scenery. Some of the additional material of interest to the garden and flower historian are the view of Haviland's pagoda built in conjunction with Philadelphia's garden labyrinth and an account of the Père La Chaise cemetery in Paris. This 1828 volume of the CASKET appears to be uncommon. Although there are many holdings of the various years of the Casket listed in online library catalogues, there are few complete runs. OCLC locates two holdings only under the specific title of "School of Flora," as published in the CASKET: one at the American Philosophical Society Library which appears to hold the relevant issues and one at Harvard Botanical Libraries, which has a full volume for 1828.8vo (22 x 14 cm); decoratively engraved title +572 pp. illustrated from wood-engravings + iv pp. index.+ 11 full page engraved portraits;lacking "The Darling Asleep" for March called for in the General Index of embellishments (not removed, but never bound in) + 24 wood-engraved illustrations printed two to a page hors texte. Bound in contemporary marbled paper covered boards with calf spine and corners, heavily worn at extremities, hinges cracking, but sewing firm; spine gilt ruled , titled and dated; internally, scattered light to moderate foxing and some brown spots and small ink stains; occasional small perforations and paper thinning in text, possibly from printing irregularies.

IT was widely reviewed and praised, reaching a fifth edition in less than twenty years. The Eclectic Review was among its admirers, commenting in its issue for April, 1828, "The Narrative is written in a fascinating style of epistolary familiarity, without ever becoming frivolously minute or tedious" and devoted some 50 pages to discussing it.

After travelling for some time in Greece and other eastern parts, he visited Spain and Portugal, and at Lisbon, in March,1807, joined the British squadron in the capacity of assistant-surgeon. In due course he rose to the rank of surgeon, and continued in the navy until 1813, when he retired on half-pay. Dr. Granville had a natural aptitude for acquiring languages and having made good use of the opportunities of doing so, which his travels had afforded him, was by this time master of many tongues. In addition to other avocations at this time, he acted occasionally as translator and interpreter to the Foreign Office, as courier and as foreign correspondent. Having determined to practise as a physician in London, he, with the consent of his family, assumed the maternal surname of Granville in addition to that of Bozzi, by which he had previously been known. By the advice of his friend, Sir Walter Farquhar, he applied himself to midwifery, and in 1816 proceeded to Paris, where he remained for eighteen months, studying midwifery under Capuron and Deveux at the Maternite, and the diseases of women and children at the Hopital des Femmes and the Hopital des Enfants. Returning to London, he settled in Savile-row, and on the 22nd December, 1817, was admitted a Licentiate of the College of Physicians, and in 1818, a fellow of the Royal Society. Through the recommendation of Sir Walter Farquhar and several distinguished persons, English and foreign, to whom he had become known in the course of his travels abroad, he soon got into practice as an accoucheur, and for several years enjoyed a considerable business in that department. Twice had he to visit Russia in his medical capacity, first in 1827, in charge of the countess Woronzow to St. Petersburg; and secondly in 1849, to attend the princess Tczernicheff, the wife of the Russian Minister of War at St. Petersburg, in her confinement. In 1835, Dr. Granville's attention was attracted to the mineral waters, first of Germany and then of England, the more important of which in both countries he personally visited and minutely examined. Becoming convinced of their value in the treatment of disease, he devoted himself, with characteristic energy and determination, to making them more generally known and appreciated in this country than they then were. His work, The Spas of Germany became, in some sort, the text-book for those seeking information on the subject, and its author the great authority to whom invalids in England resorted for guidance in the selection of a spa suited to their individual cases. In 1841, appeared his work on the English Waters and Health resorts, The Spas of England and Principal Sea Bathing Places in three volumes. Very early in the course of his investigations, Dr. Granville formed a high opinion of the value of the Kissingen waters, and from the year 1840 down to 1868, was in the habit of spending about three months of every year, from June to September, as a practising physician at Kissingen, after which he returned to London for the remainder of the year. In 1858, he paid a flying visit to Vichy and its springs, and on his return to London sent to the press a sketch of their chemical and physical characters, and of their efficacy in the treatment of various diseases. Dr. Granville retained his activity and energy to an unusually late period of his life. In 1863, he completed his eightieth year, and until then had not felt that he was an old man. But from that date, age seemed to creep upon him fast. His intellect was undimmed, but his bodily strength became enfeebled, though he was able to continue his summer visits to Kissingen as late as the year 1868, when he had a most brilliant season, surrounded by numbers of his old patients, all of whom seemed to have gone to Kissingen to consult him for the last time. On his return to England, he determined never to leave it again, and having finally relinquished practice, he commenced writing his autobiography. In 1871, he left London to spend the winter at Dover, and died there 3rd March, 1872, aged eighty-nine. Dr. Granville was a man of good natural abilities which he cultivated in a manner calculated to lead to success in the course of life to which he devoted himself. He had travelled much, he spoke many modern languages, he was easy and entertaining in conversation, and he sought society and entered largely into it. As a physician, his attentions to his patients were unremitting, he was full of resources, and had great confidence in his own powers, a feeling which he had the faculty of imparting to others; he was a good nurse and a better cook, qualities which did him good service on many occasions, and contributed, in no slight degree, to the entire trust reposed in him by many of his patients. His autobiography, an interesting work, The Autobiography of A. B. Granville, M.D., F.R.S., being eighty-five years of the Life of a Physician edited by his daughter, appeared in two volumes, 8vo., in 1874. Dr. Granville was a volum...

        A Series of Figures Shewing all the motions in the Manual and Platoon Exercises.

      William Clowes, London 1828 - Octavo, letterpress and 26 plates, some offsetting as common; an appealing copy in contemporary red quarter roan, rubbed. Mitchell on military drill. Major Mitchell's famous book on military exercises and musketry drills with its series of marvellous lithographic plates.Sir Thomas Livingstone Mitchell, explorer and Surveyor-General in New South Wales, arrived in Sydney in 1827, but this remarkable little book dates from the period immediately before he left England. Mitchell had seen action in the Peninsula War, and was for some years employed by Sir George Murray to produce plans of the major battlefields. However, the early 1820s was a fallow period for Mitchell, who was placed on half pay in 1826: the distinct lack of opportunities for the ambitious young man was what led him to lobby for appointment in New South Wales.This interesting work was clearly one of the ways in which he supplemented his income, and certainly shows Mitchell's undoubted ability with preparing illustrations for publication, as the series of drills included here are very neatly done. An 1825 edition is the earliest recorded, and although Ferguson noted only an 1830 edition, this work was clearly widely used as there was - at least - other editions in 1827 and 1828 (as here). Any copy is now quite scarce on the market.

Warnicke, and 27 engraved plates Alexander Lawson after T.R. Peale, A. Rider and one by J.J. Audubon (plate 4), all with original hand-colour. 19th-century half blue-green morocco, gilt by J.

Drayton on each front free endpaper, his sale Bonhams, 28th march, 2006, lots 182 and 183. First editions of both Wilson and Bonaparte, revised issue of volume VII of Wilson. "THE FIRST TRULY GREAT AMERICAN ORNITHOLOGY AND ALSO THE FIRST TRULY OUTSTANDING AMERICAN COLOR PLATE BOOK OF ANY TYPE" (Bennett) Wilson's "American Ornithology" famously pre-dating Audubon ".was the first American work to use color plates to convey scientific information, and the first real combination of text and color illustration produced in the United States. the project's success proved that an American audience would support such a large undertaking. Works of natural history and science, with a concrete function, proved to be more commercially viable in America than luxury works such as view books" (Reese 3.) Wilson and his nephew emigrated to America from Scotland in 1794. Legend has it that Wilson's interest in the birds of America began the day after their landing in Delaware. His eye was caught by a glimpse of a brilliantly plumaged bird (a red-headed woodpecker), so he shot it, and immediately regretted it. Some years later he found himself living near the famous American botanist William Bartram, who encouraged Wilson's growing interest in birds. "Nancy Bartram, William's niece, helped Wilson learn to draw them. On 1 June 1803 he wrote to a friend that 'I am now about to make a collection of all our finest birds', and on 12 March 1804 he confided in fellow Scot Alexander Lawson, a Philadelphia engraver, that he was 'making a collection of all the birds in this part of North America' (Hunter). Publication of the first volume of Wilson's "American Ornithology" with plates engraved by Lawson, was in 1808. "Wilson hoped to publish ten volumes, with ten plates each, but the great strain of producing it contributed to his death before completion. There were nine volumes with seventy-six plates, and it was the most extensive publication by any American author. A prospectus and specimen plates were printed, and Wilson agreed to obtain 200 subscribers before volume 1 was published. He travelled around the United States obtaining orders and studying birds. Early subscriptions from Robert Fulton and Jefferson helped persuade other subscribers. Volume 1 appeared in September 1808, and soon the printing was increased to 500 copies per volume. Plates were printed uncoloured and then coloured by hand. It was tedious work and when colourists quit, Wilson did the job himself" (Frank N. Egerton for DNB). Wilson died before the final three volumes were published. George Ord completed the remainder from Wilson's notes. Bonaparte's continuation of Wilson's "American Ornithology" was the author's first important ornithological publication. The nephew of Napoleon, Bonaparte was in the United States from 1822 to 1828, where he wrote four additional volumes for the ornithological work which Wilson had left unfinished at his death.

        [Album of watercolor botanical drawings]

      1828. STANTON, F. M. [Album of watercolour botanical drawings.] Illustrated with 20 fine paintings of flowers (ca. 380-395 x 297-315 mm), in watercolour and bodycolour, all but one with captions in gold ink, 12 signed "Tinted by F. M. Stanton" and 4 initialed "F.M.S." Manuscript list of contents (Latin plant names) on a quarto leaf tipped in at front, listing 24 plants; the 20 present in the album checked off in later pencil. Mounted in a folio-sized album, 439 x 355 mm, bound in retrospective half green calf gilt and contemporary red paper boards, contemporary green calf lettering piece gilt on front cover, titled "Specimens of Oriental Tinting," preserved in modern green cloth folding box. [No place, probably England, ca. 1818-28]. |~||~||~| A lovely nineteenth-century album of brilliant watercolour flower paintings. The flowers include roses, dahlias, peonies and above all American and other exotic species, including passion flowers, the Aztec lily (amaryllis Formosissima), Persian pearl tulip ("Tulipa Oculis Solis"), Camellia Japonica, magnolias, dahlias, Jalap blindweed (convolvulus Jalapa), and a purple poppy. Vividly coloured, the original watercolours, presumably produced by the same artist, are applied on thick wove paper and positively glow. The stencil technique of "oriental tinting" used to produce these paintings involved transferring a drawing using tracing or "oriental" paper to surfaces such as wood, velvet, silk, marble or paper, and working up the colours to the desired brilliancy. In 1829, writing in his Art of Drawing and Colouring from Nature, the drawing-master Nathaniel Whittock described Oriental tinting as a method "now in general practice" and useful for "persons unacquainted with drawing." Related to the American technique of "theorem painting," the technique produced splendid results: most satisfying to amateurs, it was largely practiced by women, during the period "when painting in watercolours was a necessary accomplishment of every young lady who aspired to elegance and taste" (Hardie, English Coloured Books, p. 123). The approximate date of this unique album derives from the watermark of the manuscript list of flowers bound in at front, which is dated 1828. A very fine copy.

        Die chronischen Krankheiten, ihre eigenthümliche Natur und homöopathische Heilung. 4 Bde.

      - Dresden und Leipzig, in der Arnoldische Buchhandlung, 1828-1830, 8°, VI, 241 pp., 1 B. Verb.; 362 pp., 1 Bl.; 1 Bl., 312 pp.; 1 Bl., 407 pp., ( 1 p. Verbesserungen), 4 Halbpergamentbände; minimal fleckig, feines Exemplar. Seltene erste Ausgabe! Sein letztes Werk von grundlegender Bedeutung, "das wichtigste neben dem 'Organon'." Haehl - "Im Jahre 1828 erschienen die ersten drei Bände von Hahnemanns letztem großen Werke "Die chronischen Krankheiten", denen zwei Jahre später noch ein vierter Band folgte. Der erste Band ist ausschließlich der Darstellung der Lehre gewidmet, währen die beiden anderen, abgesehen von einigen im Anfange stehenden kleineren Aufsätzen - ebenso wie die Bände der "Reinen Arzneimittellehre" Arzneiprüfungen enthalten. Von den Erfolgen seiner Behandlungen bei chronischen Krankheiten, soweit sie nicht auf Syphilis beruhen, sagt er: "Ihr Anfang erfreulich, die Fortsetzung minder günstig, der Ausgang hoffnungslos" (p. 6) Er ist also von seinem Optimismus stark zurückgekommen. Nun sucht er nach einem neuen Weg, diese unbefriedigenden Ergebnisse zu verbessern." - "In dem Bemühen, in das unendliche Gewirr von chronischen Beschwerden und Krankheiten Ordnung zu bringen, um siedann von einheitlichen Gesichtspunkten aus zu behandeln, kam Hahnemann dazu, die chronischen Krankheiten in Europa auf drei chronische Miasmen zurückzuführen: die Syphilis, Sykosis oder Feigwarzenkrankheit und die Psora (Krätzekrankheit). Sein Hauptaugenmerk ist auf letztere gerichtet, auf die er 7/8 aller chronischen Krankheiten zurückführt, während die beiden anderen vergleichsweise nur kurz behandelt werden." Im Gegensatz oder in Ergänzung zur Lehre des "Organons" wurden nun in den "Chronischen Krankheiten" wesentlich mehr Aufmerksamkeit der Vorgeschichte des Leidens gewidmet, ja das ganze Leben des Kranken geschichtlich durchforscht. Das mußte auf die Eigenarten des Kranken hinlenken, auf die eigentümliche Art und Reize und Schädlichkeiten anzusprechen, damit waren aber konstitutionelle Gedankengänge unvermeidlich. Das etwas verwickelte Werden und Wesen der Psoratheorie stellt sich also kurz zusammengefasst folgendermaßen dar: Mit sämtlichen Ärzten seiner Zeit faßte Hahnemann die Hauterkrankungen als Symptom anderer, innerer Krankheiten auf. Mit vielen Ärzten teilte er außerdem die Ansicht, daß viele Hautkrankheiten durch das Krätzemiasma erzeugt würden. Er ging nur weiter als die anderen Ärzte, indem er abgesehen von der Syphilis, fast alle chronischen Krankheiten auf Krätze zurückführte. Diese Krätzekrankheit entsteht wie andere chronische Infektionskrankheiten, z. B. die Syphilis durch Berührung und muß auch ähnlich wie diese behandelt werden, indem man unter Schonung der Hauterscheinungen mit inneren Mitteln die innere Krätze, die Psora und damit auch die Hauterscheinungen zum verschwinden bringt. - "Von unserem heutigen Standpunkt aus betrachtet war es ein Irrtum, fast alle Hauterkrankungen auf Krätze - in unserem Sinne verstanden - zurückzuführen, und auch eine irgendwie anders bedingte einheitliche Auffassung der Verursachung dieser Hauterkrankungen hat sich nicht bestätigt, desgleich der enge Zusammenhang aller dieser Hauterkrankungen mit inneren chronischen Krankheiten. Immerhin hat Hahnemann das Verdienst, in der Haut ein wichtiges Organ zu sehen, das enge Beziehungen zu Krankheiten anderer Art hat, was die Schulmedizin lange Zeit allzusehr vernachlässigt hat."

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Bonnland, 16. XI. 1828. - 4 SS. 8vo. An Karl Zwierlein (1791-1882), Hofsekretär zu Weimar und Freund der Schillerschen Familie, sowie dessen Ehefrau Marie: "Ein recht herzliches Verlangen von Ihnen, der lieben Marie und Ihren Kinderchen einmal etwas zu hören giebt mir die Feder in die Hand und gewiß werden Sie meinen Wunsch erfüllen und mir schreiben wie es Ihnen Allen geht. Ich bin so schnell und unerwartet aus Ihrer Nähe gekommen, daß es mir nicht mehr möglich war ein Lebewohl zu sagen, doch denke ich noch mit vielem Vergnügen an den Tag, wo ich noch die Freude hatte bei ihnen und der lieben Maria essen und so freundlich von Ihnen aufgenommen wurde [ ]. Mein Leben ist so glücklich und mit innigster Dankbarkeit erkenne ich die gütige Führung des Himmels [ ]. Es hätte mir große Freude machen können Ihnen und der lieben Maria meinen Mann vorzustellen, doch leider war es nicht möglich [ ] Ihr Versprechen giebt mir die Hoffnung Ihnen Adalbert und Bonnland selbst vorstellen zu können. Sie müssten nur Wort halten und mir die Freude Ihres Besuches geben [ ]. Von Hammelburg bekommen wir zuweilen Besuche. Am häufigsten kommt Hauptmeister Braun, welchen Sie gewiß kennen. Wir haben ueberhaupt einige angenehme Nachbarschaften, welche mich schon zu besuchen veranlaßt haben, doch in Hammelburg selbst bin ich nicht gewesen [ ]". - Die jüngste Tochter Friedrich Schillers war seit 1828 mit dem bayerischen Kammerherrn Heinrich Adalbert von Gleichen-Rußwurm verheiratet. Sie lebte mit ihm auf Schloss Greifenstein (Bonnland) in Franken. Sie veröffentlichte aufschlußreiche Werke zur Biographie Schillers und zu seiner Familie, u.a. Briefwechsel von Schiller und Lotte 1788-89 (1856) und Schillers Beziehungen zu Eltern, Geschwistern und der Familie von Wolzogen (1859). Gleichen-Rußwurm baute das Schiller-Museum auf Schloß Greifenstein auf.

        Großes Gehöft am Wasser mit einem Reiter und Handpferd.

      - Feder in Schwarz, mit Federlinie umrandet, auf gelblichem Velin, verso mit brauner Feder signiert „F. Bamberger fec.". 10,9:17 cm. Bis auf einen Braunfleck im Himmel gut erhalten. Bildmäßig ausgeführte Zeichnung. Seine künstlerische Ausbildung erhielt Bamberger um 1828 an der Berliner Akademie bei Johann Georg Schadow (1764-1850) und anschließend im Atelier des Marinemalers Wilhelm Krause (1804-1864). Nach dem Umzug der Eltern 1830 nach Kassel, wurde er dort Schüler des Hof- und Dekorationsmalers Georg Primavesi (1764-1855). Entscheidend für seine künstlerische Entwicklung war jedoch ein Aufenthalt 1832-1833 in München, wo er mit dem Werk Carl Rottmanns (1797-1850) bekannt wurde, der gerade im Auftrag König Ludwigs I. an dem italienischen Freskenzyklus für die westlichen Hofgartenarkaden arbeitete. Ab 1835 lebte Bamberger längere Zeit in Frankfurt am Main, immer wieder unterbrochen auch von längeren Aufenthalten in seiner Geburtsstadt Würzburg. im Hause der Familie des später geschätzten Landschaftsmalers Karl Peter Burnitz (1824-1886), der durch Bamberger wesentliche Anregungen für sein erst um 1849 begonnenes Zeichenstudium erhielt. Noch bevor sich Bamberger Anfang der 50er Jahre in München niederließ, unternahm er 1849-1850 seine erste Spanienfahrt, der noch mehrere folgen sollten. Vor allem die auf dieser Reise entstandenen Landschaftsbilder brachten ihm in München rasch großes Ansehen. 1844 unternahm er eine Studienreise nach Paris. Weitere Fahrten nach England und Südeuropa folgten, wo er wie in Spanien zahlreiche Werke schuf. 1871 ernannte ihn Ludwig II. zum Professor, 1872 zum Ehrenmitglied der Münchner Akademie.
