Hugh William Williams, known as Grecian Williams, was a landscape painter, probably born in Devon but who spent most of his career in Scotland. In June 1816 Williams embarked on an extensive journey through Italy and Greece in the company of his friend and patron William Douglas. This journey provided Williams with the material for this title, his 'Travels in Italy' (1820), as well as numerous watercolors.

        EL CIUDADANO ESTEVAN F. AUSTIN, EMPRESARIO, PARA INTRODUCIR EMIGRADOS ESTRANGEROS, EN LAS COLONIAS QUE LE TIENE, DESIGNADAS EL SUPREMO GOBIERNO DEL ESTADO DE COAHUILA Y TEXAS, POR LOS CONTRATOS CELEBRADOS ENTRE EL DICHO GOBIERNO Y EL MISMO AUSTIN

      [San Felipe de Austin, 1829. Small tear along old fold (slightly affecting a few letters of printed text). Else very good overall. In a half morocco and cloth box. A rare imprint from the San Felipe de Austin press of Godwin Brown Cotton This is effectively the earliest obtainable Texas imprint, since any earlier ones are only surmised or exist in a few copies in institutions. It is now extremely rare in the marketplace. The only recent sale of a copy was of a much inferior one, with loss on the top margin, which sold at Sotheby's in the Texas Independence Collection sale on June 18, 2004 for $30,000 including house premium., an original certificate of admission to Austin's colony. "These grants were the foundation of the colonization of Texas" - Streeter. This document reflects one of the four essential steps in the colonization process, being the empresario's certification stating that the immigrant (in this case a widow named Frances Manifee) had been admitted as a member of Austin's colony. The next step would be to present this certificate to the commissioner charged with issuing land titles in the Colony. This document is signed in manuscript by Samuel M. Williams, a close associate of Stephen F. Austin. Streeter refers to a similar form in his collection dated June 2, 1831, also signed by Samuel M. Williams. "For thirteen years Williams was Austin's lieutenant; he wrote deeds, kept records, and directed colonial activities during the empresario's absences" - NEW HANDBOOK OF TEXAS.

        AMERICAN ORNITHOLOGY; OR THE NATURAL HISTORY OF THE BIRDS OF THE UNITED STATES. ILLUSTRATED WITH PLATES ENGRAVED AND COLOURED FROM ORIGINAL DRAWINGS TAKEN FROM NATURE

      New York & Philadelphia, 1829. Expertly bound to style in half red straight-grained morocco and period marbled boards, spines gilt. Very good. The second full edition of Wilson's work, with plates in their most desirable form. This is the most important work on American ornithology before Audubon. "Science would lose little if every scrap of pre-Wilsonian writing about United States birds could be annihilated" - Coues. The first edition of Wilson's life-work was published in nine volumes between 1808 and 1814. The present edition was prepared by Wilson's friend and colleague, George Ord, who improved the work textually by rearranging the work in a systematic order by species and by contributing an important "Sketch of the Author's Life" (pp.vii-cxcix in the first text volume) as well as numerous additional textual notes. He also notes in his preface to the first text volume that he arranged for the plates to be "carefully examined and retouched" by Alexander Lawson (the original engraver of most of the plates). Reading between the lines of Ord's preface, it is clear that he believed the plates in the present edition to be better than the first, and this is the current general view: it is noted in FINE BIRD BOOKS that "the plates [are] coloured better," and Wood writes: "The hand-colored drawings in the atlas are from the original copper plates, colored anew by pigments which seem to have been better quality than those used by Wilson. In the copy under notice, the colors are very fresh: those of the original are faded and in some cases quite disintegrated." In addition to the coloring, better quality paper was used in this edition, thus avoiding the foxing which almost inevitably mars the first. Thus, this edition is more desirable than the first.

        Iconographie et Histoire Naturelle des Coléoptères d'Europe.

      - Paris, Méquignon-Marvis, 1829-1836 (-1838). 5 volumes. 8vo (222 x 140mm). pp. xiv, 400; 407; 326; 486; 415, (i), with 270 beautifully handcoloured engraved plates. Contemporary uniform half green morocco, richly gilt empire style spines. A fine uniformly bound set of this beautifully illustrated French classic on European beetles. The first two volumes in their original issue of 1829-1830. The stock of the first 2 volumes was destroyed by fire and both volumes were reprinted in 1837. The last volume 5, which is mostly lacking was written by Ch. Aubé and must have been issued in a small number. P.F. Dejean was called 'the first great coleopterist'. Together with Boisduval, who was his private curator, he published the above work on European coleoptera. "The great name in coleopterology during the early nineteenth century was P.F.M.A. Dejean (1780-1845), with a career quite exceptional among entomologists; a general who rose to the title "pair de France" and served as Napoleon's first aide-de-champ in the battle of Waterloo. Dejean was an ardent collector and eventually in part by purchase, brought together the largest private insect collection of his time. He lost no opportunity to fetch rare specimens, which is amply evident from what was told about his somewhat unmilitary behaviour during raging war" (R.F. Smith a.o. History of Entomology pp. 125-6). Dejean added insects to his collection from the fields of Waterloo. His collection numbered 22,399 species in 1837. W. Junk in his 'Bibliographia Coleopterologica' Berlin 1912 item 789 offers a copy of this rare work at Reichsmark 100, which makes it one of the most expensive works in the catalogue. Some occasional light foxing.Provenance: Bookplate of J. Nègre.Nissen ZBI, 1062; Horn-Schenkling 4602. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [COLLECTION OF FRENCH NAVIGATIONAL MANUSCRIPTS CONCERNING THE ANTILLES AND SURROUNDING AREA]

      [N.p. but probably Paris, 1829. The first two manuscripts in folio, the third in octavo. All, save the single-sheet map, in self-wrappers. Uniformly bright and clean. Very good. In a cloth clamshell case. An interesting early 19th-century assemblage of manuscripts concerning navigation near the Antilles and Venezuela. They are: 1) "Routier des Antilles, des Côtes de Terre Ferme et de Celles du Golfe de Mexique, Traduit de Espagnol...." Translated from the Spanish by ensign J.C. Chaucheprat, this manuscript offers a description of the Cartegena coast and lengthy navigational directions for entering Veracruz. A version of Chaucheprat's text was published as early as 1842. OCLC 17658994 (ref). 2) "Description de la Partie de la Côte Ferme Qui s'Étend Depuis la Pointe Espada Jusqu'à Carthagène...." Translated from a Spanish "derrotero," a type of sea chart, this manuscript offers navigational tips similar to the previous document, though here the emphasis is on various landmarks, including those near Salamanca and others. 3) "Description de la Côte de Caracas et des Îles Voisines, Depuis le Cap Codera Jusqu'à Celui de San Roman...." A collection of pithy descriptions of various locales in the Antilles, including Caracas, Aruba, Cape Codera, Curaçao, and others. 4) Manuscript Map of Madame Island. Executed in what was known as "Chinese ink," this map offers what is, essentially, a navigational chart for the waters surrounding the island, including various hazards and a scale. A delightful collection of maritime manuscripts, obviously executed with great care. Good evidence of the navigational sources with which French pilots were familiar.

      1829. Used to Justify Secession Rawle, William [1759-1836]. A View of the Constitution of the United States of America. Philadelphia: Philip H. Nicklin, Law Bookseller, 1829. viii, [9]-349 pp. Octavo (8-3/4" x 5-1/2"). Contemporary sheep, rebacked in period style retaining lettering piece. Moderate rubbing and a few light scuffs to boards, corners bumped and worn. Moderate toning, occasional foxing and faint dampstaining. Early owner signature to front free endpaper, interior otherwise clean. A handsome copy of an important work. * Second edition. Rawle's treatise is one of the earliest works on the United States Constitution, and one of the most important. This text is significant also because it suggests that states have a right to secede from the Union. As Cohen observes, the popularity of this text, which was used at West Point and other schools throughout the country, "is generally considered to have influenced the leaders and supporters of the Confederacy, although in fact Rawle opposed secession."

        REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE OF THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES, WITH WHICH THE SENATE CONCURRED, JANUARY 20, 1829. Messrs. Johnson, of Kentucky, Ellis, Tyler, Johnson, of Louisiana, and Silsbee, the Committee on Post Offices and Post Roads, to which had been referred various petitions remonstrating against the Transportation and Delivery of the Mails on the SABBATH, Report:-- [followed by 14 paragraphs of dense text printed in three columns, each separated by a thin rule].

      Baltimore (MD): Wm. Wooddy, printer, (1829). Broadside printed on silk (backed with linen), 51 1/2 x 40 cm. , employing several sizes and styles of type, the entire text and illustration enclosed within a wide ornamental border. The printer William Woody (ca.1788-1863) was active as a printer in Maryland from about 1817; he had served in the War of 1812 as a lieutenant in the Maryland militia (obituary in the Baltimore Daily Gazette, 26 August 1863). Not in Threads of History. Several other versions of this broadside exist; however, we have been unable to find another copy from this printer on either OCLC or in "American Imprints," and none mentioning the illustration of the mail coach. Some light fraying in left and right margins and upper right corner, not touching the decorative border, remains of old glue residue on verso along one side, just a touch of rubbing to border in two spots where the broadside was once folded, one pinhole size spot, affecting a letter or two of text. A bright clean example of a rare broadside, excellent for exhibition. Folded. (#6212) The subject of mail delivery on Sundays was hotly debated in Congress for nearly twenty years (1810-1830), as the post office handled and carried the mail seven days a week during this period. Petitions by various religious groups over these years requested that such work on Sundays be terminated. The text of this Senate report is a distillation of the controversy, and clearly takes the committee's opinion that a Congressional act halting mail delivery on the Sabbath, for religious reasons, would be contrary to the principles of the Constitution. "We are aware that a variety of sentiment exists among the good citizens of this nation, on the subject of the Sabbath day, and our government is designed for the protection of one as much as for another. The Jews, who, in this country are as free as Christians, and entitled to the same protection for the laws, derive their obligation to keep the Sabbath day [on Saturday] … with these different views, the committee are of the opinion that Congress cannot interfere … our government is a civil, and not a religious institution … the transportation of the mail on the first day of the week, it is believed, does not interfere with the rights of conscience. The petitioners for its discontinuance appear to be actuated by a religious zeal which may be commendable, if confined to its proper sphere; but they assume a position better suited to an ecclesiastical than to a civil institution. They appear, in many instances to lay it down as an axiom, that the practice is a violation of the law of God. Should Congress, in legislative capacity, adopt the sentiment, it would establish the principle, that the Legislature is a proper tribunal to determine what are the laws of God. It would involve a legislative decision in a religious controversy; and on a point in which good citizens may honestly differ in opinion, without disturbing the peace of society, or endangering its liberties. If this principle is once introduced, it will be impossible to define its bounds. Among the religious persecutions with which almost every page of modern history is stained, no victim ever suffered, but for the violation of what government denominated the law of God. To prevent a similar train of evils in this country, the Constitution has wisely withheld from our government the power of defining the Divine Law. It is a right reserved to each citizen; and while he respects the rights of others, he cannot be held amenable to any human tribunal for his conclusions." The head of the committee in the Senate, Richard Johnson (ca. 1780-1850) of Kentucky, was praised for this landmark report; his political rise, to nomination as Martin Van Buren's vice-president, followed. Sunday mail delivery continued until after the Civil War, when rapid delivery of news became more a function of modern technology than seven-day a week diligence.

        ANATOMIE PATHOLOGIQUE DU CORPS HUMAIN

      Paris: J. B. Baillière, 1829. FIRST EDITION IN BOOK FORM, bound from the original parts n. Hardcover. One of the Great Works of Gross Anatomy,With Impressive Giant Folio Colored Plates. 486 x 337 mm (19 1/8 x 13 1/4"). Two volumes. FIRST EDITION IN BOOK FORM, bound from the original parts. Contemporary marbled boards backed with recent calf, raised bands flanked by gilt fillets, black morocco labels. WITH 231 LITHOGRAPHED PLATES (two folding) OF WHICH 167 ARE IN COLOR (many heightened with gum arabic), later tissue guards. Garrison and Morton 2286; "Heirs of Hippocrates" 863; Norman 538. Corners and edges somewhat rubbed with some loss of paper (as expected with large picture books), text with variable foxing (persistent, but usually light, never severe, and principally confined to margins), a handful of black and white plates with moderate spotting, additional small defects internally, otherwise quite a commendable copy of a book always found foxed, browned, and worse, our volumes solidly restored now, the spines unworn, and the text and remarkable plates with no fatal condition problems. Garrison & Morton declares that "the fine illustrations of gross anatomy [seen here] make this one of the greatest works of its kind." The inaugural professor of pathological anatomy in Paris, anatomist and pathologist Jean Cruveilhier (1791-1874) provided in the present work the first description of multiple sclerosis, and an early description of Cruveilhier's palsy. Hypertrophic pyloric stenosis and ulceration of the stomach due to hyperacidity were also described for the first time here. In "Doctrine of the Nerves," John A. Spillane called Cruveilhier "the prince of physician-pathologists" and this work a "treasure chest of neurology." "Heirs of Hippocrates" notes that "this atlas contains some of the finest illustrations of gross pathology ever made." The plates were done by anatomical illustrator Antoine Chazal (1793-1854), a French painter, engraver, art teacher at Muséum national d'histoire naturelle, and great-uncle of Paul Gauguin. This work was originally issued in 40 parts at nine francs each over a period of 13 years. The parts were ultimately bound together into two volumes, as here, in a print run that, based upon the subscriber's list, was likely just more than 400 copies. While no stranger to auction rooms, the book--a practical reference book heavily used by professionals--is all too often found with missing plates and/or parts, and in condition that leaves much to be desired.

      An extraordinary 31-year uninterrupted run of the transactions of the Georgia Baptist Association from its annual conferences, 1829-1859. 31 volumes, all 8vo, all either self-wrappers, stitched, or original printed wrappers (some later issues lacking outer printed wrappers), most untrimmed, most of 16 pages. Places of printing include Augusta (1829-1831 and 1856-1859), Washington, (1832-1840), and Penfield (1841-1855). The De Renne Catalogue describes only eight of the pamphlets in this collection (1841, 1843-1845, 1847-1848, 1851, and 1857). The issues for 1829 and 1834 lack title pages and a few early issues lack their stitching; otherwise a very good lot, all quite scarce in trade.

        New Panorama. A Startling Interrogation

      London: T. McLean, 1829. Handcoloured engraving, 300 x 410 mm.; in fine condition, framed. A fine impression of the coloured issue of this rare cartoon, satirising the colony which at this time was desperately trying to attract free immigration. The cashier taking money for the "New Panorama" (probably representing the Colosseum in Regents Park) is shown as if he is selling tickets for a voyage when he is actually selling entrance tickets to one of the fashionably realistic panoramas of exotic foreign places then exhibiting in London."Do you wish to go to Hell or Botany Bay? Sir" he asks, to which the prospective immigrant replies: "I wonts to go to Bottomy Bay"; a young girl exclaims to her enormously fat mother "La Mama I should like to see the Naughty Place better than any thing".William Heath (1795-1840), originally a career soldier, became well-known as a caricaturist and illustrator. His work reached a wide audience, even outside England: 'on cite aussi de lui des caricatures pleines d'humour sur les moeurs anglaises, vers 1825' (Bénézit Dictionnaire).Separately issued transportation and immigration views are scarce, and this is a particularly charming and amusing example in fine condition. It may be the single caricature by Heath of an Australian subject, though his publisher - Thomas McLean - published material of Australian interest by other artists.

        Reflections on the Present State of British India.

      London: Hurst, Chance, and Co., 1829 - Octavo. Original red combed cloth, paper label to the spine, panels in blind incorporating elaborate arabesques to both boards. A little rubbed and soiled, spine a touch sunned, front pastedown slightly marked by the removal of a bookplate, inked accession stamp verso of the title and once in the margins of the text, light browning, else very good. First and only edition. Uncommon, just 10 copies on COPAC. A contribution to the debate on the governance of India, from which the arch-opponent of the EIC, and promoter of colonial self-rule, James Silk Buckingham extracted two whole chapters for publication in his journal The Oriental Herald and Journal of General Literature, describing the book as offering a "picture drawn by a carefully discriminating, as well as an able hand full of such details as must satisfy the most scrupulous of the conscientious care with which the information has been collected, compared, and revised. It is not an injured person or an inflammatory writer who says all this; but a witness who gives abundant evidence of his calmness as well as of his knowledge of the subject we strongly recommend this work as one of the best that has been published on India for a very long period" (Vol. XX, Jan.-arch, 1829, p.112). He also draws attention to the lengthy chapter "On the Danger to which British India is exposed from Russian Invasion" which represents a very early warning of the first stirrings of the Great Game, believing that "many of our readers will be gratified by the opportunity of perusing the Reflections of this able writer on the dangers to which our own magnificent Asiatic Empire may perhaps ere long be exposed to from the all-grasping ambition of Russia; and few, who give due attention to the following pages, will venture to maintain that such dangers are altogether imaginary" (p.269). The author served in the army in India from 1806 when he was posted lieutenant in the 17th Native Infantry, until his death at Calcutta in 1841, during that time holding a number of significant administrative positions including Accountant to the Military Board, 1830-5, and Judge Advocate General, 1835-41. Hodson notes Young's publication of "An Enquiry into the Expediency of applying the Principles of Colonial Policy to the Government of India" (Calcutta, 1822), and "An Essay on the Mercantile Theory of Wealth" (1832), but not the present work (Hodson, List of the Officers of the Bengal Army). Published in the same year as de Lacy Evans's On the Designs of Russia, and at a time when the author believed that Russian successes in the current war with the Ottoman Empire had put their army "in full march upon Teheran", this is a significant, and largely overlooked premonishment of the Great Game.

        The Housekeeper's Oracle; or, Art of Domestic Management: Containing a Complete System of Carving with Accuracy and Elegance; Hints relative to Dinner Parties; the Art of Managing Servants; and the Economist and Epicure's Calendar, shewing the seasons when all kinds of Meat, Fish, Poultry, Game, Vegetables and Fruits first arrive in the market - earliest time forced - when most plentiful - and when best and cheapest. To which is added a Variety of useful and Original Receipts

      London: Whittaker, Treacher & Co, 1829. The delectable Arcana of Domestic Affairs. First, and only, edition, published posthumously. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Kitchiner, 21 figures to illustrate carving and one illustration of a jelly refiner in text. Pp. iv, 344. 8vo., contemporary calf, rebacked with the original gilt decorated spine laid down, booklabel of the Montefiore family on the front pastedown, a very good, handsome copy. Kitchiner's declared intention is to provide the means "that a young Lady may learn the delectable Arcana of Domestic Affairs...which will enable her to make the Cage of Matrimony as comfortable as the Net of Courtship was charming". The information in the excellent Epicures Calendar has endured with some particularly interesting insights into bread, cheese, bacon, fish, hams &c. Kitchiner (1775?-1827) was something of an eccentric. He was an Etonian who qualified as a doctor in Glasgow and therefore could not practice in England where he lived. He was very wealthy and gave marvellous banquets, of his own devising, at his home in Fitzroy Square. If, however, guests arrived even a few minutes late, they were denied entrance. He introduced the world to his culinary prowess in 'The Cook's Oracle' of 1817, many of the dishes in which he had created and tested himself. 'The Housekeeper's Oracle' was intended to be a companion volume. Unfortunately Kitchiner died before it was published and the cause was taken up by his son who had fallen out with his father but was very keen to cash in on his fame.

        UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

      Philadelphia: Published by Henry S. Tanner, 1829. - Engraved map, handcolored in outline, in sections backed on linen. Sheet size: 50 x 63 inches. Engraved by H.S. Tanner, assisted by E.B. Dawson, W. Allen, and J. Knight, with integral decorative title vignette after J.W. Steel. The map is surrounded by numerous small panels including two extensions to the area covered by the map, six more- detailed maps of environs of various eastern cities, eight city plans, a number of elevation profiles of railroads and waterways, and two tables of statistics. Rebacked on linen, expertly conserved by the Green Dragon Bindery. Silk lining edges. Lightly and evenly toned. A very nice copy, in a recent half morocco portfolio, stamped in gilt. The first edition of Tanner's spectacular and very beautiful large-scale map from "the Golden Age of American Mapmaking." The 1829 first edition of this map is described by Rumsey as "one of the best early large maps of the United States and the premier map for its period" (Rumsey 975). The map shows the United States from the Atlantic ocean to what today is western Kansas (noted as "Kanzas" on map). To the west of Michigan Territory and Missouri large areas of land include the locations of numerous Indian tribes but are designated as "Districts" rather than Territories: District of Huron, Sioux District, Mandan District, Osage District and Ozark District. Also included are canals, railroads, "McAdamized" roads and proposed canals and railroads. One of the most attractive and interesting aspects of the map are the numerous insets: these include sixteen inset city and regional maps (Environs of Albany; Environs of Boston; Environs of New York; Environs of Philadelphia and Trenton; Environs of Baltimore and Washington; Cincinnati; Charleston; New Orleans; South Part of Florida; Washington; Baltimore; Philadelphia; New York; Boston; Pittsburgh & Environs; Oregon and Mandan Districts [8 x 13 inches, with a further inset 'Outlet of Oregon River']) the border of the main map also includes fourteen profiles of portages, canals, and railroads and two tables in the lower right corner: Statistics of the Western Districts, and Statistics of the United States. According to Tooley, H.S. Tanner is "thought to be the first native-born American to devote his career to publishing," and he is responsible for some of the most important maps of the United States to be published in the 19th century.

        REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE OF THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES, WITH WHICH THE SENATE CONCURRED, JANUARY 20, 1829. Messrs. Johnson, of Kentucky, Ellis, Tyler, Johnson, of Louisiana, and Silsbee, the Committee on Post Offices and Post Roads, to which had been referred various petitions remonstrating against the Transportation and Delivery of the Mails on the SABBATH, Report:-- [followed by 14 paragraphs of dense text printed in three columns, each separated by a thin rule].

      Wm. Wooddy, printer (1829), Baltimore (MD) - Broadside printed on silk (backed with linen), 51 1/2 x 40 cm. , employing several sizes and styles of type, the entire text and illustration enclosed within a wide ornamental border. The printer William Woody (ca.1788-1863) was active as a printer in Maryland from about 1817; he had served in the War of 1812 as a lieutenant in the Maryland militia (obituary in the Baltimore Daily Gazette, 26 August 1863). Not in Threads of History. Several other versions of this broadside exist; however, we have been unable to find another copy from this printer on either OCLC or in "American Imprints," and none mentioning the illustration of the mail coach. Some light fraying in left and right margins and upper right corner, not touching the decorative border, remains of old glue residue on verso along one side, just a touch of rubbing to border in two spots where the broadside was once folded, one pinhole size spot, affecting a letter or two of text. A bright clean example of a rare broadside, excellent for exhibition. Folded. (#6212) The subject of mail delivery on Sundays was hotly debated in Congress for nearly twenty years (1810-1830), as the post office handled and carried the mail seven days a week during this period. Petitions by various religious groups over these years requested that such work on Sundays be terminated. The text of this Senate report is a distillation of the controversy, and clearly takes the committee's opinion that a Congressional act halting mail delivery on the Sabbath, for religious reasons, would be contrary to the principles of the Constitution. "We are aware that a variety of sentiment exists among the good citizens of this nation, on the subject of the Sabbath day, and our government is designed for the protection of one as much as for another. The Jews, who, in this country are as free as Christians, and entitled to the same protection for the laws, derive their obligation to keep the Sabbath day [on Saturday] with these different views, the committee are of the opinion that Congress cannot interfere our government is a civil, and not a religious institution the transportation of the mail on the first day of the week, it is believed, does not interfere with the rights of conscience. The petitioners for its discontinuance appear to be actuated by a religious zeal which may be commendable, if confined to its proper sphere; but they assume a position better suited to an ecclesiastical than to a civil institution. They appear, in many instances to lay it down as an axiom, that the practice is a violation of the law of God. Should Congress, in legislative capacity, adopt the sentiment, it would establish the principle, that the Legislature is a proper tribunal to determine what are the laws of God. It would involve a legislative decision in a religious controversy; and on a point in which good citizens may honestly differ in opinion, without disturbing the peace of society, or endangering its liberties. If this principle is once introduced, it will be impossible to define its bounds. Among the religious persecutions with which almost every page of modern history is stained, no victim ever suffered, but for the violation of what government denominated the law of God. To prevent a similar train of evils in this country, the Constitution has wisely withheld from our government the power of defining the Divine Law. It is a right reserved to each citizen; and while he respects the rights of others, he cannot be held amenable to any human tribunal for his conclusions." The head of the committee in the Senate, Richard Johnson (ca. 1780-1850) of Kentucky, was praised for this landmark report; his political rise, to nomination as Martin Van Buren's vice-president, followed. Sunday mail delivery continued until after the Civil War, when rapid delivery of news became more a function of modern technology than seven-day a week diligence.

The Puppet Theater in NaplesCarl Gustav Hjalmar Mörner, born May 7, 1794 in Stockholm, died September 15, 1837 in Paris, was a Swedish artist. He devoted himself first to the military court and participated in the battles of Grossbeeren, Dennewitz, Leipzig and Bornhöved. As with many other officers at the same time he devoted himself to amateur painting, which is testified by many of his sketches from youth, conviviality and the campaign in Germany. Later he turned seriously to art and traveled in 1816 over Germany and France to Italy, where he stayed until 1828. Mörner tried to paint larger compositions with historical or folklore motifs in oil, but had little success with them. One of the more famous paintings in this genre include Odin's arrival to Sweden's Rosendal Palace. His greatest contribution was made as a draftsman and lithographer. In 1820 he published a series of Roman carnival images in outline etching Il Carnevale di Roma, but these was later transformed into lithographs, which suited his drawing much better, as shown in Italian costume pictures (1825), Scenes populaires de Naples (printed in Naples in 1826, French edition 1828), Travel Memories France, Germany and Italy (1829) and Stockholmska Scenes (1830). During a stay in London from 1830-36, Mörner published a lithographic album, Miscellaneous Sketches of Contrasts (1831). A scheduled work on physiognomy was not completes due to the artist's death in Paris in 1837. Hjalmar Mörner's work is represented in the Gothenburg Museum of Art, ?-stergötland County Museum, Orebro County Museum, and the University Library in Uppsala.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("I. Moscheles")

      Hannover, 18. XII. 1829.. 2 SS. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt. Gr.-4to. Mit eh. Adresse am Gegenblatt verso (Faltbrief).. Schöner, ausführlicher Brief an den Wiener Komponisten Joseph Merk (1795-1852): "Sie haben mir recht viele Freude durch [Ihr] freundschaftliches Schreiben gemacht, u. doppelt genoß ich es da ich daraus noch immer den jovialen humoristischen alten Aventure-Kameraden erkannte. Meine Antwort erfolgte so spät weil ich Ihren Brief erst vor 8 Tagen in Hamburg fand als ich von einer großen Reise aus Dänemark und Schweden zurück kam. Es blieb mir daher nur Zeit meine Sinfonie schnell in Stimmen abschreiben zu lassen, und gestern expedirte ich sie per Post an Sie adressirt. Ich hoffe Sie erhalten sie mit diesem Briefe zugleich. Es gewährt mir große Beruhigung daß meine erste Arbeit in diesem Fache durch Ihre Hände der Gesellschaft des. k. k. Oesterr. Musikvereins zur Dedikation angeboten und zur Aufführung gebracht werden soll. Ihre Theilnahme und Freundschaft wird sich gewiß wieder dabey bewähren. Ich erwarte mir nicht daß dieses Werk in einer Stadt wo Haydn, Mozart und Beethovens Sinfonien das Tageslicht erblickt haben, einiges Aufsehen mache; sondern daß meine Freunde sehen mögen daß es mir nicht an guten Willen und Fleiß fehlt, zuweilen etwas besseres zu schreiben, als Bijoux a la Sontag. - Es wäre gut die Stimme in Partitur zu setzen für den Dirigenten, auch die erste Probe mit dupplirten streichenden Instrumenten zu machen, indem die Blasenden sehr stark benützt sind u. ein starkes streichendes Chor erfordern. Das Tempo ist in der Violin 1mo Stimme nach Maelzels Metronom angegeben. Wenn Sie mir über den Erfolg Ihrer Verwendungen etwas werden sagen könnnen, so bitte ich mir nach London zu schreiben [...]. In Copenhagen hatte ich eine angenehme Aufnahme u. spielte bey Hofe, wofür ich vom König eine goldene emaillirte Dose und vom Prinzen Christian einen Brillant Ring bekam. Meine Zeit war zu kurz um in Schweden weiter vorzurücken als bis nach Gothenburg wo ich in der Schnelligkeit ein gutes Concert machte. Grüßen Sie mir Herrn Haslinger [...]". - Moscheles war am Prager Konservatorium Schüler von Dionys Weber, in Wien von Johann Georg Albrechtsberger und Antonio Salieri "und gehörte bald zu den beliebtesten Pianisten und Lehrern Wiens" (DBE). 1825 übersiedelte er nach London, wo er zu den führenden Persönlichkeiten des Musiklebens zählte und als Professor an der Royal Academy of Music und als Mitdirektor und Dirigent der Royal Philharmonic Society tätig war. 1843 verpflichtete ihn sein ehemaliger Schüler und Freund Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy als Klavierlehrer an das Leipziger Konservatorium. Mit seinem Schaffen zählt Moscheles zu den bedeutendsten Pianisten seiner Zeit. - Kleine Papierdurchbrüche in den Bugfalten; kl. Randausriss von Siegelöffnung (keine Textberührung); eine Bugfalte im Gegenblatt alt hinterlegt.
