        Beschreibung der Glyptothek Sr. Majestät des Königs Ludwig I. von Bayern. Architektonischer Theil von Leo von Klenze, Verzeichniss der Bildwerke und Gemälde von Ludwig Schorn

      viii, 220 pp. Small 8vo, red sheep maroquiné, covers stamped in gilt & blind, flat spine gilt, a.e.g. Munich: J.G. Cotta, 1830. First edition of the first catalogue of the famous Glyptothek, Munich's oldest museum and the only museum in the world devoted to sculpture. While a few of the sculptures originate from the Wittelsbach Prince Electors, most of the Greek and Roman marble examples were purchased by Ludwig I who had travelled through Italy in the years 1804-05. The Glyptothek was designed by von Klenze (1784-1864), architect to the court of Ludwig I, between 1816 and 1830. He has provided here a detailed account of the building. Schorn has carefully described 328 sculptures. A very fine copy from the library of the dukes and kings of Bavaria. Apparently lacking an errata leaf at end. ❧ Murray, Museums.

        Lecciones de Fortificaion de Campaña, Sacadas de las Obras Modernas que Tratan del Arte Militar, y Particularmente de la Obra Classica Francesca, Titulada Diario del Oficial de Ingenieros.

      Libreria Americana, Calle del Temple, No. 69,, Paris: 1830 - 12mo, contemporary quarter calf, marbled boards, gilt spine, [4], 114 pages. A scarce handy guide on military field fortification (including lessons on fortifying a garden or a cemetery) and an interesting imprint given the contemporary Revolutionary tumult in Central and South America. (One wonders whether this title was published prior to the 1830 July Revolution, which prompted the return of liberal French rule and the consequent loss of French military support for Fedinand VII.) CCFr and OCLC each locate only the two BNF copies of this title; a search of CCFr for various iterations of Journal and Ingénieur between 1800 and 1830 do not immediately return any obvious candidates as the French source book for this guide. Some light general staining and light foxing throughout; a bit worn, with some slight cracking along the joints; a good, sound copy. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Senza titolo (ma Veduta dei quattro Mori in Livorno).

      1830 circa. Acquarello, cm 16,8 x 19,8 (il foglio), gli angoli sono stondati. Raffinato acquarello dai colori tenui, con alcune figure (spicca una donna in abito violetto) intorno al celebre gruppo scultoreo giocato tra i verde dei mori e il bianco della statua del granduca Ferdinando I che li sormonta; un insieme di imbarcazioni a vela sulla sinistra del foglio, alle quali il grandiìuca sembra gurdare con fiera ammirazione. Sul finire del XVI secolo, per volontà di Francesco I de' Medici, furono avviati i primi lavori per la realizzazione della nuova città fortificata di Livorno, secondo il progetto dell'architetto Bernardo Buontalenti. Fu tuttavia Ferdinando I, salito al potere nel 1587, a dare maggior impulso al colossale cantiere, tanto da essere considerato il vero fondatore della città. Per celebrare questa impresa, e i trionfi riportati contro i pirati barbareschi dall'Ordine dei Cavalieri di Santo Stefano, il granduca Ferdinando I fece erigere un monumento in suo onore davanti alla piccola darsena che fece scavare sul finire del Cinquecento per ampliare il porto; il gruppo scultoreo, posto nei pressi della possente cinta muraria, avrebbe così attestato l'autorità granducale agli occhi dei numerosi viaggiatori che avrebbero fatto scalo a Livorno. La statua del granduca fu commissionata allo scultore Giovani Bandini, che la realizzò a Carrara a partire dl 1595, per essere quindi trasportata per mare a Livorno nel 1601. Tuttavia l'imponente monumento restò ai margini della piazza della darsena per ben sedici anni, fino al 1617, quando fu innalzato su un piedistallo, alla presenza di Cosimo II de' Medici, succeduto al padre Ferdinando I nel 1609. Successivamente, nel 1621, fu dato incarico a Pietro Tacca di completare l'opera di Bandini con l'aggiunta, alla base del piedistallo, di quattro mori incatenati, che lo scultore portò a termine in più riprese, tra il 1623 e 1626. Un allievo del Tacca, Taddeo di Michele, eseguì un gruppo di trofei barbareschi che furono collocati intorno alla statua di Ferdinando: quattro mori in bronzo incatenati alla base di un alto piedistallo, sopra il quale si innalza la statua del medesimo granduca Ferdinando I, che è rappresentato con l'uniforme dell'Ordine dei Cavalieri di Santo Stefano, l'istituizione militare fondata da Cosimo I de' Medici per combattere gli ottomani e la pirateria nel Mediterraneo. Il monumento avrebbe dovuto essere completato da due fontane con mostri marini, realizzate dal Tacca intorno agli anni Trenta del Seicento, che però non giunsero mai a Livorno, ma furono poste in Piazza della Santissima Annunziata a Firenze. Nell'Ottocento, tramontanta l'ipotesi di trasferire il gruppo scultoreo in Piazza Grande, il monumento fu solamente arretrato al centro della piazza antistante la darsena del porto. Passpartout che segue il movimento smussato del foglio, con alta fielttatura in celeste, rifinita da più sottili filettature in marrone. In buono stato di conservazione.

Slightly worn and soiled; some stains and bleeding; edges slightly frayed. . Bertini's twenty-five Études caractéristiques, op. 66, were first published by Schott in Mainz in 1830. They are but one installment of his approximately 500 published etudes for piano, which range from simple exercises for beginners to concert etudes like the op. 66 set. These pieces by Bertini were among those that formed the background for Chopin's Études. Interestingly, the deletions in red crayon relate to passages eventually included in the published editions. "[Henri] Bertini spent his childhood in Paris and was the pupil of his father, but more especially of his brother [Auguste Bertini], who passed on the fruits of ClementiÂ’s teaching. At the age of 13 he was taken on tour by his father, playing in Belgium, Holland and Germany. Later he spent some time in London and Scotland before settling in Paris in 1821. His life was uneventful, devoted to giving concerts, teaching and the production of an immense number of compositions, reaching 180 opus numbers. As a player he had ClementiÂ’s clarity of technique and a style of phrasing akin to HummelÂ’s and MoschelesÂ’s. He was less brilliant in manner than Kalkbrenner and Herz, and was, according to Marmontel, no dreamer or Romanticist despite his association with the leading figures of the 1830s; he concentrated more on strict pedagogy. His compositions include numerous rondos, fantasias, variations, divertissements etc., and his studies were used for over a century. He published a nonet, six sextets for the piano and strings, and many smaller chamber works. Three nonets and three symphonies for the piano and orchestra are among his unpublished works."

Slightly worn and soiled; some stains and bleeding; edges slightly frayed. . Bertini's twenty-five Études caractéristiques, op. 66, were first published by Schott in Mainz in 1830. They are but one installment of his approximately 500 published etudes for piano, which range from simple exercises for beginners to concert etudes like the op. 66 set. These pieces by Bertini were among those that formed the background for Chopin's Études. Interestingly, the deletions in red crayon relate to passages eventually included in the published editions. "[Henri] Bertini spent his childhood in Paris and was the pupil of his father, but more especially of his brother [Auguste Bertini], who passed on the fruits of Clementi?'s teaching. At the age of 13 he was taken on tour by his father, playing in Belgium, Holland and Germany. Later he spent some time in London and Scotland before settling in Paris in 1821. His life was uneventful, devoted to giving concerts, teaching and the production of an immense number of compositions, reaching 180 opus numbers. As a player he had Clementi?'s clarity of technique and a style of phrasing akin to Hummel?'s and Moscheles?'s. He was less brilliant in manner than Kalkbrenner and Herz, and was, according to Marmontel, no dreamer or Romanticist despite his association with the leading figures of the 1830s; he concentrated more on strict pedagogy. His compositions include numerous rondos, fantasias, variations, divertissements etc., and his studies were used for over a century. He published a nonet, six sextets for the piano and strings, and many smaller chamber works. Three nonets and three symphonies for the piano and orchestra are among his unpublished works." Hugh Macdonald in Grove Music Online.

        PRINCIPLES OF GEOLOGY, Being an Attempt to Explain the Former Changes of the Earth's Surface by Reference to Causes Now in Operation

      London, John Murray, 1830.. Volumes I and II only of 3, BOTH FIRST EDITIONS 1830 and 1832 (Volume III appeared in 1833). PRESENTATION COPIES "W(illiam) L(onsdale) (geologist see below) from the author" inscribed on half-title to Volume I and "Lieut. Lonsdale from the author" on front endpaper to Volume II (see below). 8vos, approximately 215 x 135 mm, 8½ x 5½ inches, Volume I: engraved frontispiece, 2 maps, 1 folding, 1 half page, 1 half page engraved view and 33 woodcuts in the text; Volume II: hand coloured aquatint frontispiece, folding hand coloured map, 8 woodcuts in the text, pages: Volume 1, xvi, 511 including index plus 17 page Murray catalogue dated June 1830; Volume 2, xii, 330, including index plus 16 page catalogue dated December 1831, half-title in Volume I, not called for in Volume II. Handsomely bound in modern sdark green full morocco, single gilt ruled border with inset blind stamped border, gilt raised bands to spines, 5 gilt framed compartments with gilt motif, gilt lettering, new endpapers. Frontispiece in Volume 1 lightly spotted, plate 3 with 2 images lightly browned and slighly foxed, light offsetting on page 1 from folding map in Volume II, very occasional small pale mark to margins in both volumes, otherwise very good clean tight pair. This work has been called the most important scientific book ever. A stunning claim, but certainly Charles Lyell's Principles of Geology, published in 1830, shook prevailing views of how Earth had been formed. His book was an attack on the common belief among geologists and other Christians that unique catastrophes or supernatural events -- such as Noah's flood -- shaped Earth's surface. Lyell argued that the formation of Earth's crust took place through countless smaller changes occurring over long periods of time, all according to known natural laws. His proposal was that the forces shaping the planet have operated continuously throughout its history. He also wrongly assumed that these causes must have acted only with the same intensities now observed, which would rule out asteroid impacts and the like. Darwin read Lyell's landmark text while on the Voyage of the Beagle, and was much inspired by it. His own experiences during the voyage backed up Lyell's theories of how the shifting crust of the Earth was one of these long-acting, gradual, shaping forces. William Lonsdale (1794-1871) became a serious geologist and palaeontologist after a career in the army which ended in 1829. He wrote several papers on fossiles and won the Wollaston medal in 1846 for his research on the various kinds of fossil corals. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE.

        Portolano del mare Adriatico compilato sotto la direzione dell'Istituto Geografico Militare dell'I. R. Stato Maggiore Generale dal CAp. Giacomo Marieni

Qualche marm. a poche pp. Rarissima edizione di questo che viene considerato il primo portolano realizzato del Mare Adriatico e che andava a corredo della Carta di Cabotaggio del Mare Adriatico realizzata tra 1822 e il 25 da Campana, Bordiga e dallo stesso Marieni. Questi importante lavoro, iniziato gia' sotto la dominazione francese dal Deposito dell guerra, trasformato, dopo la restaurazione in Istituto geografico militare, vide la collaborazione tra i governi del regno delle due Sicilie, quello Lombardo Veneto e gli ufficiali di Sua Maesta' britannica diretti dal Capitano Smyth. Nel 1845 verra' pubblicata una seconda edizione, anch'essa di grande rarita'. Comunque questo portolano verra' utilizzato per tutto il XIXo secolo. Le ultime 4 pp. contenenti le correzioni ed aggiunte pur essendo in continuita' di numerazione, furono stampate nel 1837, come riportato in calce. In fine sono indicati latitudine e longtudine di centinaia di luoghi costieri e isole. Vengono quindi descritte le coste tra Venezia e Trieste, dell'Istria, Quarnaro, Dalmazia, Albania, Epiro. la parte tra Venezia e il Porto di Primaro e sino ad Ancona, poi da Ancona al Gargano, le Tremiti, Pianosa e Pelagosa e sino a S.

        Ochsen-Menuet für das Piano=Forte zu vier Hände. (:samt der Anecdote über den Ursprung derselben:) [Hob. IX/27]

      Manuskript, ca. 1830.. [Manuskript ca. 1830]. qu.-Fol. 5 beschriebene und 2 unbeschriebene Seiten. Ogeh. Hob. I, 576 f. - "Uiber den Ursprung der Ochsen-Menuet. Haydn wurde eines Tages durch den Besuch eines Fleischers überascht. Dieser Mann, der für Haydns Musik eben soviel Gefühl hatte, als irgend einder, sagte ihm freimüthig und so zierlich er konnte: 'Mein Herr, ich weiß, daß Sie ein guter gefälliger Mann sind; darum wende ich mich mit Vertrauen an Sie ...'". - Sehr schöne und saubere Abschrift auf handrastriertem Papier aus der Sammlung Paumgartner. Silvester Paumgartner (geb. ca. 1763, gest. 1841) galt als der Musikmäzen von Steyr; Schubert war nach 1819 mehrmals bei ihm zu Gast. (Deutsch, Dokumente S. 609 et passim). Paumgartner hatte 1819 das Forellenquintett bei Schubert bestellt und offenbar auch in Einzelheiten, wie etwa in der Besetzung und in der Verwendung der Melodie aus dem Lied "Die Forelle" D 550, angeregt. Über ihn schreibt ein anderer Schubert-Freund, Albert Stadler, in der Allgemeinen musikalischen Zeitung: "Die Kammermusik verehret als ihren Mäcen den k.k. Hauptgewerkschäftlichen Herrn Vicefactor Sylvester Paumgartner, der, selbst sehr gut musikalisch, eine grosse, kostspielige Sammlung der besten Vocal- und Instrumental-Werke, nebst vorzüglich guten Saiten-Instrumenten besitzt."
