        Felsenzerklüftete südliche Landschaft bei Mondschein mit einem Lagerfeuer.

      1830. Radierung, 1830, auf Kupferdruckpapier. 20:26,1 cm. Literatur: Andresen/Heller 5; Boetticher I, 2, S. 812, 34. Aus einer Folge von 6 Blatt Landschaften. - Warmtoniger, samtig schwarzer Abdruck mit breitem Rand.. Krüger wurde in der Malklasse von C. Blechen (1798-1840) in Berlin ausgebildet. Das Radieren erlernte er seit 1832 bei L. Buchhorn (1770-1856). 1838-1840 vertrat er den erkrankten Blechen im Lehramt an der Akademie. Die kühn aufgefaßte Landschaft mit stelenartig geformten Felsblöcken ist für Carl Krüger, der die Darstellung von Fluren in Dorf- oder Waldnähe bevorzugte, weniger typisch.

        PHYSIOLOGIE DU MARIAGE, OU ME´DITATIONS DE PHILOSOPHIE E´CLECTIQUE SUR LE BONHEUR ET LE MALHEUR CONJUGAL. PUBLIE´ES PAR UN JEUNE CE´LIBATAIRE

      Paris: Levavasseur, 1830. FIRST EDITION n. Hardcover. Attractively Bound Marital Advice, Including the Use of Leeches to Infuse the Wife with Languor. 197 x 127 mm (7 3/4 x 5"). Two volumes. FIRST EDITION. Appealing rose-colored morocco by Fletcher Battershall (stamp-signed on front turn-in with his distinctive bat device), covers with mitered frame of double gilt rules, topiary cornerpieces, raised bands, spine compartments framed in gilt with leaf cornerpieces, gilt titling, turn-ins with gilt rules and leaves at corners, top edges gilt. Front pastedowns with large wood-engraved bookplate of the binder. Vicaire I, 181. A dozen leaves spotted (four of these noticeably so), scarcely perceptible uniform fading to spines, but IN FINE CONDITION, the text otherwise clean, bright, and fresh, and the bindings with lustrous leather, glittering gilt, and virtually no wear. This is a pleasing copy of an early work in Balzac's celebrated multi-volume "Comédie Humaine," offered here in excellent amateur bindings by scholar, collector, connoisseur, and binder Fletcher W. Battershall. A lawyer by trade, Battershall (1866-1929) was the author of "Book-Binding for Bibliophiles" (1905) and several articles on bookbinding. He was perhaps a pupil of Louis Kinder, head binder at the Roycroft Shop, as Kinder dedicated his own book, "Formulas for Bookbinders," to Battershall in admiration of the latter's "love for and unceasing labors in the study of artistic bookbinding." Generally considered to be the father of social realism, Honoré de Balzac (1799-1850) was one of Europe's greatest novelists. His "Comédie Humaine" was a collection of interlinked narratives depicting French society from 1815-48 (encompassing the Restoration and the July Monarchy), the collection embracing 95 finished and 48 unfinished works. "New World Encyclopedia" tells us that "even in its unfinished state, it represents an immense literary endeavor, larger in scope and length than possibly any other literary work undertaken in recent history, and comparable perhaps only to" William Faulkner's series of novels and stories set in the American South. The present Balzac work was part of what is called the "physiologie genre," a group of books produced in Paris in the 1820s, 1830s, and early 1840s. According to "Oxford Companion to French Literature," these works comprised "a precious source for the study of the society, politics, and culture of this period," with "the most notable [of these] being Brillat-Savarin's 'Physiologie du Goût' (1826) and Balzac's 'Physiologie du Mariage' (1830). . . . Underlying all the Physiologies was the sense that modern city life had become both infinitely interesting and mysterious, as well as decidedly ridiculous and bathetic." Balzac was no expert on marriage, and his self-help advice here seems to us somewhere beyond unsound. Husbands are advised to keep their wives weak and submissive by discouraging sunshine and physical exercise in favor of lounging and frequent baths. Should the wife continue in ruddy good health, leeches might be employed to reduce her to the desired languorous state. Despite the dubious applicability of its text to modern life, the book is nevertheless sought after, whether attractively bound or not.

        Essay on the Hieroglyphic System of M. Champollion, Jun. And on the Advantages which it offers to Sacred Criticism.

      Perkins & Marvin, Boston 1830 - Boston: Perkins & Marvin, 1830. First Edition. 7.5" x 4.75", 276 pp. including appendices, plus two plates. Floral patterned brown cloth, printed paper spine label. Two older shelf labels on spine, signs of professional hinge/joint restoration, cloth with soiling, stains, some fading; crayon note on front pastedown. dampstain on endpapers, light foxing mainly at endpapers. Firmly bound, about very good. Rare translation of M. J.G.H. Greppo's essay on Egyptian hieroglyphics, which was based on the work of Jean-Francois Champollion. Champollion, who is generally considered the founder of scientific egyptology and who was the first to have substantial success (following some success of English physicist Thomas Young) in deciphering the Rosetta Stone, began publishing his findings in the early 1820's and, despite some opposition, had set the standard for future studies of Egypt by the time Greppo's piece was published. Greppo himself was the Vicar-General of Belley, France. He published a number of pieces based on his central interest, ancient religious writings, which he considered hieroglyphics to primarily be. More than 1/3 of this piece is comprised by voluminous and informative appendices; there are also two small plates at the end. L10 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Rutledge died suddenly in 1832, age 34 and the work was completed by Mr. Hawks who became church historian. The Auchmuty manuscript is in Mr. Hawks' hand.

        VIEW OF HERNE BAY, SHOWING THE PROPOSED PIER AS DESIGNED BY THO.s TELFORD Esq. F.R.S. L.and E. A Company has been formed for the erection of the above Pier at Herne Bay situated 15 miles on this side of Margate, to be incorporated by Act of Parliament. - Capital œ50,000. in Shares of œ50. deposits œ2 each Share. - Prospectuses Etc. may be had of the Directors or of the Solicitors to the Company, mess., Clift and Fisher, 23 Red Lion Sq., and Mr Peirce Burgate Canterbury. N.B. This Pier will extend into the Sea 3,000 feet and will be 30 feet wide - The Pier Head will be 220 feet long with an inclined Plain on each side of 20 feet in width, for the landing of Passengers, Carriages, etc., at all times of the Tide.

      R. Cartwright Litho. 1 Warwick Place. n.d. but c. 1830 - Lithograph printed on india paper, 17 x 12 inches. Some slight foxing but a fine copy with good margins. A delightful imaginary view of Telford's proposed pier taken from the sea looking at the coast with the infant town of Herne Bay undeveloped in the middle distance. A windmill stands near the beach and another in the background. The coastguard station with its flagpole also stands on the shore and some 20 or 30 houses dot the foreshore. At the pier head are two paddle-steamers discharging passengers from London. With the coming of the Canterbury and Whitstable Railway in 1830 the way was open for the development of nearby Herne Bay as a watering place. With the Railway offering fast and efficient communication with Canterbury, the opportunity to usurp Margate as a major tourist resort was pivotal on a pier, thus speculative investment schemes were proposed to build such a pier. The respected name of Telford added considerable weight to this proposal's success; and the pier was built nearly exactly as here shown and was opened in 1833. A very rare view of considerable historical and topographical interest. PRINTS/MAPS HERNE BAY KENT PRINTS 19TH CENTURY THANET ARCHITECTURE- TOPOGRAPHY TOWNS- PRINTS/MAPS

        Plate 105, Profilo di una Nave antica di marmo.

      Paris 1830 - John Wilton-Ely plate 1000The watermark present is number 93 in John Wilton-Ely on page 1182 and is dated in the 1830s Giovanni Battista Piranesi was one of the leading figures in the development of the neoclassical style in the late 18th Century. As architect, archaeologist, artist, designer, collector, and antiquities dealer, he produced a series of etchings and engravings depicting the glories of ancient Rome. These fine prints served as source material for other architects and designers. He was born in Venice on the 4th October 1720. The son of a stone-mason, he was educated as an architect under his maternal uncle Matto Lucchesi and under Carlo Zucchi. In 1740 Piranesi left Venice for Rome, there he studied etching under Giuseppe Vasi. He appears to have had little success in these early years in Rome and as his father was unable to continue his allowance returned to Venice in 1744. He was soon, however, encouraged to return to Rome by Giuseppe Wagner, a successful engraver and publisher of Venice. This time he achieved success, and a constant series of works, illustrating architecture and antiquities, issued from his studio until his death in 1778. His output in etched plates is enormous (about 1000 numbers in all). While he achieved a work of magnitude in pictorial records of Roman monuments of antiquity and of the Renaissance, and gave immense archæological, antiquarian, and topographical value to this work, the artistic quality always predominates. He was fond of peopling his ruins with Callot-like figures, and \"like Callot makes great use of the swelling line\" (Hind). He had two sons and a daughter, all of whom helped him in his work and after his death carried on his publications in Rome and Paris. They were Francesco (born 1748 or 1756; died 1810), Pietro (who lived till after 1807) and Laura (born 1750). His position in Rome and in Europe after 1760 was a prominent one. He was well-known figure to the wealthy English visitors in Rome and was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1757. Most of his life was passed in Rome, etching, writing, publishing, and directing a workshop in which the restoration and sale of antiques played a considerable part.He was famous for his poetic views of Rome and also his fantastic imaginary interiors. His skills, allied to his deep knowledge of archaeology, provided the substance for his Vedute (Views), a series of 135 etchings of ancient and contemporary Rome, published from 1745 onwards, which established the popular mental image of the city. Vasi.et Ornamenti Antichi was a collection of 110 etchings documenting large sculptural vases, together with other antiquities excavated (and in some cases created) in Italy in the 18th century. The prints were initially separately issued and sold by Piranesi over a period of several years and subsequently collected in two folio volumes, each with its own title page, in 1778. They illustrate a wide range of genuine antiquities, as well as Piranesi\'s own collections, from utilitarian objects such as cinerary urns, lamps, and sarcophagi to monumental vases. The plates in Vasi often included text by Piranesi with information about where the objects were discovered and their contemporary location, and the prints bore dedications to his patrons, colleagues, visitors and influential people. He believed absolutely in the supremacy of Roman over Greek architecture, an argument he expounded most forcefully in his Della magnificenza ed architettura dei Romani (On the Magnificence of Roman Architecture, 1761). his romanticized views and imaginary interiors had a profound effect on stage designers, painters of capricci such as Hubert Robert, and even writers: William Beckford, the author of the Gothic novel and Vathek . In the 20th century his imaginary interiors have been admired by the Surrealists . Reference: John Wilton-Ely. Giovanni Battista Piranesi: The Complete Etchings.

        Description of a View of the Town of Sydney , New South Wales; the Harbour of Port Jackson, and surrounding country; now exhibiting in the Panorama, Leicester-Square. Painted by the Proprietor, Robert Burford

      London: J. and C. Adlard, 1830. Octavo pamphlet of 12pp., with folding lithograph measuring 275 x 395 mm., fine in recent grey paper boards. "The view from this place is bold, varied and beautiful" Rare and historically important depiction of Sydney Town. This booklet describes and illustrates the Sydney Town view exhibited in London at Robert Burford's panorama in the Strand. It includes a lithograph of the panorama as a line drawing in two courses, with accompanying text specifically describing buildings and points of interest (including places of Aboriginal significance). The panorama is based on original landscape watercolours by Augustus Earle. In February 1827 Earle painted a series of panoramic watercolours of Sydney from Palmer's Hill, which he then dispatched to Robert Burford in London. In this booklet, Burford notes how Earle's studies were enriched with commentary by Henry Dumaresq, formerly private secretary to Governor Darling, who had returned to England during 1827: 'The present Panorama was taken from the highest part of the government domain, the drawings were made by Mr. Earle, under the inspection of Lieutenant Colonel Dumaresq, by whom they were brought to England, and to whom R. Burford takes this opportunity of making his acknowledgements for the polite attention he has obtained from him in the progress of the painting. The view from this place is bold, varied and beautiful…' Earle was an important figure in colonial Australian landscape art and the development of lithographic printing in the colony, as noted in {i Australian Rare Books}:{i }'Earle's importance in the history of Australian art and in the development of lithographic art in Australia is such that every serious collection should have some example of his work'. Given the panorama no longer survives, and was important in disseminating information about New South Wales to the public in England, this booklet with its lithographic plate is considerable historical interest. The panorama opened in the Strand and later moved to improved premises at Leicester Square. Naturally illuminated with a large skylight, the panorama was open during daylight hours and its success depended upon the quality of natural light afforded by the weather (not surprisingly, foggy London weather producing underwhelming results). Altick notes that the duration of any one panorama was variable, but Burford typically exhibited scenes for about 12 months during that late 1840's. The business closed in 1863, eclipsed by the new art of photography that captured the exotic in an altogether different way (see {i The Shows of London }pp. 137-140). The booklet was first printed in 1829 and this issue with the title-page dated 1830 is substantially unchanged. Both are rare.
