First edition of this compendium of Arabic versification. The German classicist and theologian Freytag (1788-1861) studied at Göttingen, but in his final year accepted an appointment as sub-librarian at Königsberg. In 1815 he became a chaplain in the Prussian Army and visited Paris in that capacity. Upon the proclamation of peace Freytag resigned his chaplaincy and returned to his research in Arabic, Persian, and Turkish, studying in Paris under Silvestre de Sacy. In 1819 he was appointed to the professorship of Oriental Languages at the new University of Bonn, and he held this post until his death. His principal work was the "Lexicon Arabico-Latinum" (Halle, 1830-1837), an abridgment of which was published in 1837. - Occasional browning; slight chipping to spine; early Swiss ownerships ("Dahler", "R.

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

      Paris: Libreria Americana, Calle del Temple, No. 69, 1830. First edition.. Some light general staining and light foxing throughout; a bit worn, with some slight cracking along the joints; a good, sound copy.. 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 IngÈnieur between 1800 and 1830 do not immediately return any obvious candidates as the French source book for this guide.

Very rare. Cornelis Rudolf Theodorus Krayenhoff (1758-1840). Brilliant military engineer, Krayenhoff was charged in 1826 with irregularities in the financial management of large scale fortification projects and with carelessness in the exercise of his duties. Charges were pressed against him and eight other officers. A Major General took his life in prison; other officers were sent to prison for periods varying from 6 months to 20 years. Some, including Krayenhoff, were acquitted though he still had to spend two months in prison because of other charges. In 1830 he was formally acquitted of all charges by the High Military Court. At the same year he published the present memoire.

        Memoria sobre la cria caballar de Espana: causas del aniquilamiento de nuestros caballos, verdadero modo de entenderse y verificarse en nuestro clima la cruza con los de paises estrangeros y mejora para su regeneracion y engrandecimiento [...].

      [Madrid], 1830.. Folio (30 cm). Double-page ink wash drawing of the idealized (Arabian-bred) Spanish horse, [8], 198, [4 blank], [2], 25 pp; with separate 13 pp. of addenda. Bound in contemporary half black calf over marbled boards, gilt titles and ornaments on spine. Binding a little rubbed, contents very good. Manuscript on Spanish watermarked paper "Manuel Serra 1829", written in neat cursive throughout with occasional flourishes. Signed twice by the author, "Francisco De Laiglesia Y Darrac", dated "Madrid 24 Mayo de 1830". Bookplate on pastedown of the noted Spanish collector Jose Gallart Folch.. Highly important manuscript, being the author's autograph copy - possibly for presentation to the dedicatee (the King of Spain). Darrac's groundbreaking treatise on the admixture of Arabian bloodlines to the Spanish horse was subsequently accepted by the King and printed 'by Royal decree' in the following year, 1831. "To assure that Spain would have ready supply of quality horses and mules, the recommendations first purposed by Francisco Laiglesia Y Darrac in his brilliant 1831 book Memoria sobre la cria caballar en Espana - causas del aniquilamiento de nuestros caballos (Thesis on Horse Breading in Spain- Causes of the Annihilation of Our Horses) were finally adopted. Laiglesia might well be called the father of the Arabian horse of Spain, because he was the first to advocate the importation of a large group of desert-bred stallions and mares as the only means of recuperating the lost qualities in Spain's horses. In the same work he also articulated the first detailed plan for the creation of the Cria Caballar, the Stud Book Espanol, the National Stud" (Steen). - A horse expert with the Royal Army, Laiglesia's treatise is wonderfully detailed and shows a thorough knowledge of Arabians and their bloodlines. His main thesis argues that with the introduction of as few as 20 of the best pure-bred Arabians, the entire country's stock of horses can be 'regenerated' in a few generations. To this end he launches into an in-depth discussion of the logistics of this plan, ranging from discussions of the desert Bedouin origin of the purest Arabians, from the regions surrounding Sanaa and Nedjed-el-Areb in the Arabian Gulf (Section 65) to an intimate familiarity with the different classes of Arabians from these bloodlines (Hatiks or Kadischi & Kochlani). Laiglesia notes with admiration that the practice of recording the bloodlines of these Arabians is extremely meticulous at the court of the Emir. - Laiglesia also addresses the problems of how to select the best pure-bred Arabians based on proportion, etc., as well as the difficulties in procuring them. He insists that they must be purchased 'on-site' in Arabia Felix and then brought to a station in Aleppo for inspection, en route to Spain. Laiglesia even suggests the most comfortable means of transporting the precious horses (by warship, rather than a smaller merchant vessel which doesn't have enough space). Interestingly, one measure for Laiglesia of the superiority of Arabians is their excellence in horse-races: he points out that all the greatest English champions (Flying Childers, High Flyer, Eclipse, etc.) have all been bred from Arabian stock. - The present author's manuscript and its illustration in fact show significant differences compared to the printed book, which is itself extremely rare (just 3 copies worldwide, according to OCLC). - For the printed book, cf OCLC 63603570 (U Barcelona, British Library, U Penn); Palau 130186; Fairman Rogers Collection on the Horse, 453. Cf also Andrew K. Steen, El Caballo Arabe en Espana, 1831 a 1934 (2007).

        Landschaft bei Sorrent.

      1830 1830 - Bleistift, auf chamoisfarbenem Velin, rechts unten bezeichnet und datiert „Sorrento am 25. Juli 1830" und von einer anderen Hand „im Hause der Gr(äfin) v(on) E(gloffstein). 18,3:24,1 cm. - Verso: Porträt der Karoline Lauska. Bleistift, rechts unten bezeichnet „Frau Lauska". Minimal fleckig. Im Juli 1830 reiste Julie von Egloffstein in Begleitung des Malers Fr. Preller d.Ä. (1804-1878) von Rom über Neapel nach Sorrent, wo sie einige Gemälde und Zeichnungen schuf. Unsere Ansicht ist von dem Haus aus gemalt, in dem die Künstlerin sich während ihres Sorrenter Aufenhaltes aufhielt. Das rückwärtige Bild zeigt ein Porträt der 1794 in Berlin geborenen Malerin Karoline Ermeler, die den Musiker F.I. Lauska (/1764-1825) geheiratet hatte. Sie war eine Schülerin von J.C.H. Kretschmar (1769-1847) und von W. von Schadow (1788-1862). Lauska bereiste Italien drei Mal, sicher 1829-1830. Möglich ist, daß sich Lauska ebenfalls 1830 in Sorrent aufhielt, wo dann Egloffstein das Porträt gemalt haben könnte. Ungewöhnlich ist bei diesem Porträt nicht nur die Wahl der Porträtansicht, sondern auch, daß es sich um eines jener seltenen Porträts einer Künstlerin handelt, das von einer Künstlerin gemalt wurde. In Weimar aufgewachsen, wurde Julie zunächst Hofdame von Luise von Sachsen-Weimar-Eisenach; ihre Schwester Caroline war Hofdame der Erbherzogin Anna Amalia, eine bedeutende Mäzenatin der Weimarer Kunst- und Literaturszene. Julie von Egloffstein pflegte Kontakt mit Goethe, der ihr besonders zugetan war. Sie bildete sich unter dessen Anleitung zur Zeichnerin und Malerin aus. Auch war sie Schülerin von G.F. Kersting (1785-1847) in Meißen. Die Künstlerin unternahm zahlreiche Reisen im In- und Ausland und erlangte nicht nur wegen ihres künstlerischen Talents, sondern auch wegen ihrer Schönheit große Bekanntheit. 1826 porträtierte sie Goethe, weitere Porträts von Mitgliedern der Herzogsfamilie in Weimar sowie dem bayerischen König Ludwig I. und Königin Therese folgten. Daneben schuf sie auch Genrestücke. Durch eine mehrjährige Studienreise ab 1829 nach Italien, fand sie Anschluß an die deutsche Künstlerkolonie in Rom und wurde Ehrenmitglied der römischen Accademia di S. Luca. Hier kamen architektonische Ansichten von Italien hinzu. 1832 Rückkehr nach Weimar. Eine zweite Italienreise folgte 1838-1840. Ihre letzten Lebensjahre waren von einem schweren körperlichen Leiden geprägt.

        Cistineae. The Natural Order of Cistus, or Rock-Rose

      James Ridgway, London 1830 - (10 x 6 1/4 inches). 112 hand-coloured engraved plates by J. Hart, M. Hart, W. Hart and Mrs. Brown. Uncut. Contemporary green cloth, covers blocked in blind, flat spine divided into compartments with gilt rules, lettered in gilt in the second Sweet's highly decorative practical guide to the cultivation of the Rock-rose or Cistus: one of the most beautiful family of flowering plants. Cistus species are upright evergreen shrubs, having mostly pink or purple flowers, which resemble roses. Originally published in 28 parts between July 1825 and January 1830, each plate shows a single variety of Cistus or Rock-rose and is accompanied by text giving a taxonomic description and instructions for the plant's cultivation. The present example is a later issue, with plates on paper watermarked 1845. Robert Sweet "was born in 1783 at Cockington, near Torquay, Devonshire. When sixteen years old he was placed under his half-brother, James Sweet, at that time gardener to Richard Bright of Ham Green, near Bristol, with whom he remained nine years. He subsequently had charge of the collection of plants at Woodlands, the residence of John Julius Angerstein . In 1810 Sweet entered as a partner in the Stockwell nursery, and when that was dissolved in 1815, became foreman to Messrs. Whitley, Brames, & Milne, nurserymen, of Fulham, till 1819, when he entered the service of Messrs. Colvill. While in their employ he was charged with having received a box of plants knowing them to have been stolen from the royal gardens, Kew, but was acquitted after trial at the Old Bailey on 24 Feb. 1824. In 1826 he left the Colvills, and till 1831 occupied himself almost wholly in the production of botanical works, while still cultivating a limited number of plants in his garden at [Pomona Place] Parson's Green, Fulham. In 1830 he moved to [Cook's Ground, King's Road] Chelsea, where he had a larger garden and cultivated for sale to his friends? He died on 20 Jan. 1835. He had been elected a fellow of the Linnean Society on 14 Feb. 1812. The botanical genus Sweetia was named in his honour by De Candolle in 1825" (DNB).

        Pigeon Parakeet

      Illustrations of the Family of Psittacidae, or Parrots, London 1830 - Illustrations of the Family of Psittacidae, or Parrots Published: London 1830-1832 Medium: Hand-colored lithograph Dimensions: 14.5 x 21.5 inches (page size) Edward Lear's Illustrations of the Family of Psittacidae, or Parrots, a total of 42 hand-colored lithographed plates, was issued in a limited edition of 175 copies between 1830 and 1832. Working in the Zoological Gardens in Regent's Park in London, Lear was the first to draw his birds from life. Since he also produced his own lithographs, Lear's plates have a spontaneity and accuracy which is often lacking in sketches which have been translated into another medium. As Susan Hyman notes: His best plates, those of the large flamboyant parrots, reveal a rare sensibility, one that could combine the most exacting scientific naturalism with a masterly sense of design and an intuitive sympathy for the animal intelligence. Minutely exact in every detail of anatomy, plumage and colouring, the birds are portrayed against minimal backgrounds of lightly sketched branches, leaves and twigs.they endure as portraits of individuals rather than of species.(from Susan Hyman, Edward Lear's Birds, New York, 1980, p. 28. References also Handasyde Buchanan, Nature Into Art, New York, 1979, pp. 122-124.)

        Military Reminiscences extracted from a Journal of Nearly Forty Years' Active Service in the East Indies

      London: Smith, Elder, and Co., 1830. 2 volumes octavo (213 × 132 mm). Modern red half calf, matching linen boards, title gilt to spines, foliate roll gilt to the spine and corner edges. Uncoloured aquatint frontispiece to each, and 20 other aquatint plates, 2 of them folding, 21 full-page wood-engraved illustrations, 14 maps and plans, 2 fo them folding one of these an aquatint, wood-engraved title-page vignettes and numerous similar illustrations to the text. Perhaps a little rubbed, some foxing and browning, and occasional offsetting to and from the plates, but overall a very good set. First edition. "Military Service in India and Ceylon, 1790-1829" (Bruce). Welsh (1775-1861) was born in Scotland, and in 1790 was commissioned as ensign in the army of the HEIC, the following year being posted to the 3rd European Regiment in Madras. He participated in the capture of Pondicherry, 1793, and in 1795 of Ceylon; served in the 2nd Mahratta War, 1803-5, being present at Ahmadnagar, Argaum, Gwilghar, and Makarsir; 1805-7 commanded a battalion at Poona, putting down a mutiny of native troops at Palamkotta; 1809 lead the assault at the taking of Arambooly, Travancore; and in 1812 put down a native rising in the Wainad. He spent 1829-37 in England before returning to India as GOC Northern Division, Madras, until 1847. Welsh's memoirs "methodically trace nearly every step of the imposition of British control over South India. For the major encounters with the French, Dutch, and during the Mahratta War, he often lists the 'order of battle' and summarizes the casualties. Of some interest are Welsh's recollections of service with Lord Cornwallis and Major General Arthur Wellesley, later the Duke of Wellington" (Riddick).

        Manual of Plain Directions for Planting and Cultivating Vineyards, and for Making Wine, in New South Wales

      Sydney: R. Mansfield for the Executors of R. Howe, 1830. Small octavo, 96 [iv] pp., upper margin of title-page expertly repaired, moderate preliminary browning, contemporary manuscript note laid down on rear endpaper; very good in early papered boards, manuscript to front "Busby on Vine 1830", backstrip faithfully renewed. Presentation copy: Busby's rare second book. First edition, presentation copy: one of the rarer books by Busby, considered the founder of the Australian wine industry. The front endpaper is inscribed "Revd. Mr. Cartwright with the author's best regards, 26 June 1830" and this copy has, tipped in, a curious and quite significant early manuscript note on the wine-making method of Thomas Hobbes Scott at the Male Orphan School, established by Macquarie in 1819 at Liverpool, and the same place where Busby himself first taught viticulture (see below).James Busby (1801-1871) was probably the most important single figure in the early history of the Australian wine industry, and his property Kirkton on the Hunter River, which was taken over by Lindemans in 1914, is the oldest continually producing vineyard.Busby's three books on viticulture had an enormous effect on the early wine industry. He had published Treatise on the Culture of the Vine in 1825; it was largely a compilation from European writers, addressed to "the attention of the higher classes", but it prompted Governor Brisbane to encourage him in practical experimentation, the results of which appear in the present book. Here Busby attempted to convince "the more numerous portion of the community constituting the class of smaller settlers... that they, and each member of their families may with little trouble and scarcely any expense, enjoy their daily bottle of wine, the produce of their own farms...".This follow-up book has proved to be the rarer of the books on the market, perhaps because its practical nature made it more studied and used. It is also interesting to see that in his brief preface Busby takes some pains to compare the drinking of wine by the poorer peoples of southern Europe "with the unhappy effects produced by the consumption of spirits, or of malt liquors, among the same ranks": it seems plausible that this opening salvo was meant as a direct riposte to Atkinson's work on distilling of the previous year. Certainly Busby is keen to promote the ease and simplicity of life with a vineyard, and this book has the added attraction of many small asides relating to his successes, such as his evident pride that he recently opened one of his bottles at a dinner at the Male Orphan School, where it was pronounced to taste rather like a decent Burgundy.This copy has a wonderful colonial association, being presented by Busby to the Reverend Robert Cartwright (1771-1856), a philanthropic pastor based at Liverpool who was on friendly terms with Macquarie. Cartwright had been one of those encouraged to emigrate by Samuel Marsden, arriving in Sydney in 1810 and becoming an energetic and popular figure in the Hawkesbury before his transfer to Liverpool in 1819. It was Cartwright who accompanied Macquarie to Lake Bathurst in 1820, and who preached a famous sermon there. Apart from a brief unhappy stint at the fashionable St James in Sydney, Cartwright is remembered for a long and useful career in the remoter corners of New South Wales from Canberra to Albury. He had a lifelong concern for the Aborigines, and although many of his plans were met with polite indifference, he "had enunciated some important principles of Aboriginal welfare policy" (ADB). Busby is known to have been assiduous in making sure that copies of his book got into the hands of influential figures in New South Wales, particularly those who lived outside the city, and although Cartwright is not recorded as trying his hand as a vigneron, no doubt Busby hoped that it might yet be perused by interested settlers in the local vicar's library. This hope must explain the curious early manuscript note pasted in at the rear, which gives brief details of "Mr. Archdeacon Scott's instructions for the Vineyard & making wine at the M.O.S. here", followed by a brief but significant account of the process of making some 152 gallons of what must have been a rather robust local wine. This is significant because "Scott" refers to Thomas Hobbes Scott, who had worked as a wine-merchant in Bordeaux before travelling to New South Wales as the secretary to Thomas Bigge. Scott had been appointed Archdeacon of NSW (then part of the Calcutta diocese) in 1824. Indefatigable in his work, Scott took particular pains with his schools, and the initials "M.O.S." of course refer to the Male Orphan School.This connection with the M.O.S. is critical, as it was here that Busby himself had his first appointment in 1824, and where for three years he took charge of the school farm and taught viticulture, before he lost the position when the school came under the control of the trustees of the Church and School Corporation in 1827 (ADB). What this means is that this marvellous copy was at the epicentre of the fledgling Australian wine industry centred around the work of Busby, and itself provides a clue to the connection between Cartwright and Scott, and concrete evidence of Busby's book being used as a practical guide to winemaking in the colony (on Scott generally see R. T. Wyatt, 'A Wine Merchant in Gaiters: Thomas Hobbes Scott, Archdeacon of N.S.W., 1824-1829', Journal and Proceedings (Royal Australian Historical Society), 35: 3 & 35:4, 1949).

        Views of the Country Seats of the Royal Family, Nobility and Gentry of England,

      London: R. Ackermann and Co., 1830. - A Fine Selection of Hand-Colored Aquatint PlatesFrom Ackermann's Repository of ArtsIn a Beautiful 'Regency' BindingACKERMANN, Rudolph, publisher. [A collection of two hundred and thirty plates from Ackermann's Repository of Arts]. London: R. Ackermann and Co., [1809-1826]. Royal octavo (9 x 5 7/8 inches; 230 x 150 mm.). Containing 98 hand colored aquatint plates of the Views of the Country Seats of the Royal Family, Nobility and Gentry of England, plus 55 duplicate plates. In addition there are 75 hand colored and 2 plain aquatint 'furniture' plates including curtains,flower stands, tables, chairs, book cases, library tables and chairs, sideboards, etc. and two plain plates, making a grand total of 230 plates, one plate detached. A few of the Country Seats have their names corrected in ink and dated 1824.Contemporary full 'Late Regency' red straight-grain morocco, covers elaborately bordered in gilt surrounding a diamond-shaped central panel with a large and elaborate gilt design in the center, this in turn is surrounded on the four corners by equally gilt decorated green morocco onlays. Spine richly decorated and lettered in gilt, two elaborately gilt decorated labels, decorative gilt turn-ins, all edges gilt, pink paper endpapers. Joints and corners a little rubbed, binding at some time restored by the Abrams Bindery, Wellington, Somerset with their small ticket on rear paste-down.We have been unable to identify the binder but this is a very flamboyant and beautiful binding by one of the very best finishers of the early nineteenth century."No record of Regency society is more vivid than Rudolph Ackermann's celebrated journal . it devoted space to all things fashionable and every month for almost 25 years included hand-colored plates of furniture, drapery and interiors, providing an unrivalled visual record of Regency taste and design. Ackermann was an astute populariser, identifying what was fashionable at the time and presenting it to the public. It is therefore possible to follow the decorative ideas of the Regency period from year to year. Early issues of the Repository enthusiastically promoted the Grecian style, which had come from France and was introduced to London particularly by Henry Holland and Thomas Hope; later issues reflect the arrival of the French Empire style, with its Roman allusions, developed by the designers Percier and Fontaine. Sometimes Ackermann's plates represent the particularly English taste for the picturesque. The revived Gothic style is depicted most notably in the remarkable series of plates by the elder Pugin, and the Egyptian style also figures prominently.Furniture for dining rooms, drawing rooms, studios and boudoirs, cabinets, bookcases, bureaux, plant stands, chaises longues - indeed, every facet of Regency furniture from window drapes to mechanical chairs is accurately portrayed and described.Rudolph Ackermann was apprenticed at the age of 17 to a carriage designer at Hueningen, near Basel, under whom he worked for three years. In 1783, now a qualified designer, he took the first decisive step of his career and travelled to Paris, where he entered the employment of the fashionable carriage maker Antoine Carassi . When sometime before 1786, Ackermann moved to London, he therefore brought with him not only expertise in the design and fitting of Haute Carrosserie but also familiarity with the latest developments in fine arts in Europe . In 1795, he opened an establishment at 96 The Strand that was at once publishing house, print shop, art supplier and drawing school . By 1797, the business was so successful that Ackermann moved to 101 The Strand, closer to the Royal Academy's premises in Somerset House. The emphasis on fine art was now increased, with a larger drawing class and a picture gallery. Ackermann's confidence in his new status was marked in 1798 by the naming of 101 The Strand as "The Repository of the Arts." (Stephen ]ones).Abbey, Life, 212. Tooley, 13. Hardie, pp. 110-112.

        Sylva Britannica; or, portraits of forest trees, distinguished for their antiquity, magnitude, or beauty. Drawn from nature

      London: published for the Author by Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown and Green, 1830. Imperial octavo. (11 x 7 1/2 inches). Additional title on india paper mounted with etched vignette, 49 etched plates by Strutt, all on India paper mounted. Original oatmeal-coloured cloth, rebacked. Provenance: Edward Kynaston Bridger (d.1898, armorial bookplate); William Russell Grace (1832-1904, armorial bookplate) An attractive copy of the first octavo edition of this charming work: the deluxe issue with the plates all printed on india paper. Rather than concentrating on generic descriptions of species of trees (although these are given), Strutt here provides a portrait in words and pictures of 50 of the greatest trees or stands of trees in England and Scotland: a snapshot of the trees as they stood in 1830. "Greatest" is here interpreted by Strutt in various ways: tallest, largest girth, largest spread, oldest, etc. The preponderence of the examples given are oaks (21), but he also includes examples of elm (6), beech (2), ash (2), chestnut (4), cedar (3), yew (3) and one each of lime, poplar, willow, plane, maple, sycamore, Scotch fir, silver fir and larch.This work was first published by Strutt in 1826 in a folio format, and was available by subscription at 9 guineas for the normal issue or for the issue with the plates on india paper 15 guineas (a list of the subscribers to this folio edition is included in the present octavo edition). For the present work, the folio plates were reduced and the folio text was modified to allow for the re-ordering of the trees into more coherant groupings. As with the folio edition, this work was offered in two forms: at £1 11s. 6d. for the normal issue or 3 guineas for the deluxe issue with the plates on india paper (as here).The early owner of this copy, William Russell Grace, the co-founder of W.R Grace and Co., was an American success story who rose from relative poverty to be one of the richest men in the country. He was also a noted philanthropist and served two terms as Mayor of New York. Lowndes III, p.2534; Nissen BBI1907.
