        Porträtt av skulptören Bengt Erland Fogelberg (1786-1854).

      Olja på duk. Signerad: "Sandberg". Skrivet a tergo på en etikett: "B. E. Fogelberg sign. Sandberg". 27,5 × 22,5 cm. Förgylld originalram. Proveniens: Troligen i konstnärens ägo till åtminstone 1831. | C. F. Lindberg, Stockholm 1898. Arkiv: Svenska porträttarkivet, Nationalmuseum, 1937:1909. Utställd: Stockholm, Konstakademien 1822 (troligen).. Konsthistorien rymmer många ungdomliga opponentrörelser. En sådan ägde rum på 1810-talet då Johan Gustaf Sandberg, Bengt Erland Fogelberg och Johan von Breda gjorde uppror mot de gammalmodiga undervisningsmetoderna på Konstakademien genom att 1814 bilda Sällskapet för konststudium och anordna en fri modellskola. I detta betydelsefulla vänporträtt möts två av rörelsens huvudpersoner, skulptören Fogelberg porträtterad av målaren Sandberg. Det är ett intensivt ungdomsporträtt av Fogelberg som utfördes innan han 1820 lämnade Sverige för att efter ett år i Paris bosätta sig i Italien. Vid denna tid bodde vännerna i samma hus på Norrmalm, f.ö. samma byggnad där Per Henrik Lings undervisningsanstalt för gymnastik och fäktningskonst var belägen (Jens Lorenz Beeken, Dagbog, paa en Reise i Sverrig [1818], Kjøbenhavn 1820, s. 79). I Statens porträttsamling på Gripsholm finns en mindre replik av porträttet, daterad 1831 (23 × 18 cm. Gripsholm nr 1975. Mauritz Beijerstein, Johan Gustaf Sandberg 1782-1854 (1928), kat. nr 111). Den torde ha varit förlaga till Sandbergs porträtt av Fogelberg i planschverket Galleri af utmärkta svenska lärde, vitterhetsidkare och konstnärer från Gustaf I:s tid till närvarande tid (Stockholm [1835]-42). (Porträttlitografin av Fogelberg, nr 94, är daterad 1840 och uppges i texten felaktigt vara utförd efter ett original av Södermark. Misstaget beror antagligen på att just Södermarks porträtt följer som nr 95.) Sandberg diskuterar projektet och nämner föreliggande porträtt i ett brev till Fogelberg redan 1827: "Jag håller nu på att måla mina samtida skickligaste artister, musici och lärda i samma format som det portrait [av dig] jag målade innan du reste. Forsell har i tanke att gravera dem". (Citerat efter Beijerstein s. 103.)De tre upprorsmännen framträder även i ett välkänt grupporträtt av Sandberg från 1815, hans finaste arbete i genren. Tavlan utstrålar "förtätad stämning av Sturm und Drang" (Sven Erik Noreen i Svenskt konstnärslexikon, 5 (1967), s. 34) och föreställer de sammansvurna inbegripna i ett allvarligt samtal, förenade likt grekiska krigare emot etablissemangets tyranni.Fogelberg hör till Göteborgs stora söner; han föddes i staden och efter sin bortgång i Trieste åtefördes hans stoft till Göteborg, där han 1862 begravdes på Östra kyrkogården

        On a Peculiar Class of Acoustical Figures; and on certain Forms assumed by groups of particles upon vibrating elastic Surfaces,

      PHOTOGRAPHS SENT ON REQUEST. First Edition, extract from: Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, pp.299-340, Vol. 121. Quarto, numerous textual illustrations, very good copy, half calf gilt in period style, London: Richard Taylor, Royal Society, 1831. "In the spring of 1831 Faraday began to work with Charles (later Sir Charles) Wheatstone on the theory of sound, another vibrational phenomenon. He was particularly fascinated by the patterns (known as Chladni figures) formed in light powder spread on iron plates when these plates were thrown into vibration by a violin bow. Here was demonstrated the ability of a dynamic cause to create a static effect, something he was convinced happened in a current-carrying wire. He was even more impressed by the fact that such patterns could be induced in one plate by bowing another nearby. Such acoustic induction is apparently what lay behind his most famous experiment" (Britannica).

        La Peau de Chagrin, roman philosophique. 2 Tomes.

      Paris, Charles Gosselin, Urbain Canel, 1831. 8vo. Bound in one cont. hcloth w. gilt title to back. Re-backed w. dark cloth resembling the old, preserving almost all of the old back. Extremities a bit worn. Some brownspotting. On good paper, lacking half-titles but w. both leaves of errata and both frontispieces after Johannot, engr. by Porret, printed on fine China paper. All the errata from the errata-leaves have been hand-corrected in ink in a contemporary hand, which has also neatly written "Corrigé" after both lists of errata.. The very rare first edition of one of Balzac's main works, -one of his greatest novels and the one to establish his name as "M. de Balzac", which he used for all later publications. The novel quickly became highly popular, and was published in seven editions in Balzac's life-time. The second edition of the work appeared under the title "Romans et Contes philosophiques" merely a month and a half after the first edition; "Seconde édition, LA PEAU DE CHAGRIN étant considérée comme la premiere édition des "ROMANS ET CONTES PHILOSOPHIQUES." (Carteret I:62). The first edition appeared in August 1831, and the second in September 1831. The novel was thus a great success, and by June the following year (1832) three editions and 4500 copies of the book had been sold. The novel marks the actual literary debut of Balzac, and with this work he began the series that would come to occupy a separate and distinctive role in his "Comédie humaine", the "Études philosophiques". "La "Peau de chagrin" n'est pas vraiment en roman, mais un conte à demi-philosophique, à demi-fantastique, qui rapelle quelque peu la manière d'Hoffmann, lequel exerca les "Études philosophiques" une très grande influence" (Laffont-Bompiani, III:689). Balzac is one of the most celebrated French romantic and post-romantic writers, and this is one of his earliest and most famous works. Balzac is generally accepted as one of the main founders of realism in literature, and numerous great writers like Flaubert, Zola, Marcel Proust etc. have been influenced by his writings. "Tout ses livres, ne font qu'un livre; livre rivant, lumineux, profond, où l'on voit aller, et venir, et marcher, et se muvoir, avec je ne sais quoi d'effaré et de terrible, mêlé au réel, toute notre civilisation contemporaine[...] Balzac saisit corps à corps la société moderne. [...]" (Hugo about Balzac, see N.B.G. 4:330). With the ownership signature of the famous Danish poet, Niels Møller (1859-1941), dated "Marts 1891", who is primarily known for having translated several classical Greek works, among these Aristotle's Politics and Nicomachean Ethics, into Danish. He also translated Shakespeare and Browning. Carteret I:60
