        Ueber Kunst und Alterthum [(Bd.1,) H.1-3:] in den Rhein und Mayn Gegenden. Erster Band. Erstes Heft (- Sechster Band. Drittes Heft). Achtzehn Hefte in sechs Bänden. Mit fünf Kupfern, davon eins gefaltet, und zwei gefalteten Tabellen.

      Stuttgart, in der Cottaischen Buchhandlung 1816 - 1832 - Halblederbände der Zeit mit Rückenschild und -vergoldung. Etwas berieben, an Ecken und Kapitalen etwas bestoßen, Leder über den Gelenken teils etwas mürbe und am Vordergelenk von Bd.6 rissig. Von den wiederholten illustrierten, aber textlosen Orig.-Umschlägen des ersten Bandes ist ein Vorder- und ein Rückumschlag vorhanden, zu allen übrigen Heften sind die bedruckten Orig.-Umschläge beigebunden. Erste Ausgabe (Hagen 487; Goedeke IV/III,542-571; Diesch 1644; Kirchner 4115). - Teils etwas (stock-)fleckig, teils etwas gebräunt, Vorsätze und Titel teils mit handschriftl. Namen "G.F.Quentell", einmal datiert 1832; es handelt sich vermutlich um den Maler GUSTAV QUENTELL, der nach 1833 in Köln bei Simon Meister studierte und seit 1838 in Detmold lebte und malte (vgl. u.a. Thieme/B. 27,512). Mit allen Haupt- und Nebentiteln (zu Bd.3,H.6 erschien kein Hefttitel) vollständiges Exemplar, absolut zeitgenöss mit den Orig.-Broschuren gebunden besonders bemerkenswert, da der Absatz so schleppend verlief, daß um 1900 noch alle Hefte lieferbar waren und heute Exemplare im Orig.-Lieferzustand bzw. mit den Umschlägen in neueren Einbänden deutlich häufiger zu finden sind als zeitgenössisch gebundene. Die Umschläge "sind wichtig, da sie [d.h. die zu Bd.2ff.] nicht nur Inhaltsverzeichnisse und Verlagsanzeigen, sondern teilweise auch Nachträge und Sprüche enthalten." (Deneke 478). Eine "wilde Scizze" zu dem Umschlag des ersten Bandes stammt von GOETHE selbst, in ihr hat er Eindrücke seines Besuchs des Kölner Doms wiedergegeben (vgl. P.Raabe, Goethes Umschlag, S.40, in: Festgruss für Hans Pyritz), ausgearbeitet hat sie HEINRICH MEYER und in Kupfer gestochen C.A.SCHWERDGEBURTH. 16 Jahre nach Beendigung der Propyläen war die in loser Folge über einen Zeitraum von noch einmal 16 Jahren erschienene Zeitschrift "das Publikationsorgan des alten GOETHE für alle kulturellen Belange . Was später als Maximen und Reflexionen bekannt wurde, war in den Heften verstreut, ebenso zahme Xenien." (Conrady). Thematisch breiter gefächert als der Vorgänger machte GOETHE hier auch auf Literatur und Autoren des Auslands aufmerksam, "die mit ihrem Werk die Poesie recht eigentlich repräsentieren: WALTER SCOTT, vor allem aber ALESSANDRO MANZONI und LORD BYRON. Die von GOETHE in seiner Zeitschrift zuerst publizierten Übersetzungen, Betrachtungen und Würdigungen ihrer Werke begründeten den bis heute anhaltenden Weltruhm dieser Poeten." (K.-Hahn, in: Goethe-Jahrbuch 92). Die meisten (285) Beiträge stammen von GOETHE, zahlreiche von H.MEYER, weitere Mitarbeiter waren ECKERMANN und SULPIZ BOISSEREE, den GOETHE im Sommer 1816 besucht hatte und unter dem Eindruck von dessen Sammlung er gleich nach der Rückkehr an den Arbeiten zum ersten Heft begann. Das letzte Heft mit Texten aus GOETHEs Nachlaß von den "Weimarer Kunstfreunden" herausgegeben, "enthält u.a. zwei Briefe GOETHEs über den Abschluß des Faust, wovon der eine, an W.V.HUMBOLDT gerichtet, am 17.März 1832, dem Tag, an dem Goethe tödlich erkrankte, geschrieben ist." (Rech. Trauzettel) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Rough-legged Buzzard. Buteo Lagopus; (Flem)

      London 1832 - John Gould (1804-1881) A selection from Birds of Europe. Lithograph with original hand-coloring measuring 14 ½” x 21 ½”. Lithograph accompanied by corresponding natural history description written by John Gould. Condition: Very good. John Gould was without question the most prolific natural history artist of the nineteenth century. He worked during a period of intense fascination with discoveries in natural history, especially regarding knowledge of the wildlife of exotic lands. Gould shared the romantic enthusiasm of his time for such subjects, as well as the popular impulse to catalogue exotic wildlife. He combined his passion for natural history with outstanding scientific, artistic, and entrepreneurial talents. Drawing on these abilities, he embarked on a series of projects that would eventually make him the leading publisher of ornithological illustrations in Victorian Britain. Gould’s unparalleled career spanned five decades, and he produced a monumental series of books of birds throughout the world. Gould planned the Birds of Europe in an effort to redress the imbalance between the study of local and foreign ornithology. In his preface he stated his mission: “the Birds of Europe, in which we are, or ought to be, most interested, have not received that degree of attention which they naturally demand. The present work has been undertaken to supply that deficiency.” Gould portrayed birds native to Europe in a manner that had only been thought appropriate for the colorful species of distant places. In this way he managed to draw much popular interest back to native birds, which were suddenly considered equally beautiful to exotic species. Rich, vibrant color is an important attribute of the best 19th Century prints. Many prints by John Gould found on the market today have modern color that affects both the appearance and the value of these great works. John Gould died in 1881 still actively illustrating and producing fine bird books. His stock of unsold copies, unbound text and plates in various states, lithographic stones, drawings and paintings, amounted to nearly three tons. Many of the uncolored pulls from his monumental "Birds of Europe" have been recolored in the last thirty years, and these are often found on the market. Fortunately, the difference between original and modern color can be discerned by looking carefully at the print. When modern color is applied to 180 year old paper, the application is inconsistent; the cellulose of the aged paper has begun to breakdown and can no longer evenly absorb the watercolors, resulting in a splotchy uneven appearance All of the Gould bird prints in Arader Galleries' inventory have exquisite original color. The vastly superior quality of original color can be clearly differentiated from new color by its smooth and even appearance. The inks have noticeably deeper, richer tones. The difference can also be seen in the lovely surface "sheen" that results from the application of gum arabic when the lithograph was first pulled. The hand coloring of engravings and lithographs reached its zenith in the 19th Century. Works that still display their original color are more rewarding to view, and will better hold their value in the years to come.***If you frame up this item with Arader Galleries you can take a 50% discount off the listed price of this work of art.***

        Declaration of Independence, in Congress, July 4, 1776: The Unanimous Declaration of the Thirteen United States of America

      New York: Humphry Phelps and Bele Squire. October, 1832. Letterpress printing on cream paper, text and most decorations in black. With expert restoration, laid on rice paper. Approximately 29.5 x 20.5 inches overall, printed area 24 x 19 inches, or 71 x 48 cms. From the very beginning this document has been ???the??? pivotal document in U. S. history. The Declaration of Independence has been printed many, many times since its original publication in 1776. First as a broadside, then as an important addition in law books. The original of the Declaration [the ???parchment??? copy which was actually signed by Congress] was displayed, often in very poor conditions, and as a consequence suffered damage: the ink flaked and faded, and the parchment became darkened and creased, etc. Two early facsimile printings of the Declaration were made during the second decade of the 19th century: those of Benjamin Owen Tyler (1818) and John Binns (1819). Both facsimiles used decorative and ornamental elements to enhance the text of the Declaration. Richard Rush, who was Acting Secretary of State in 1817, remarked on September 10 of that year about the Tyler copy: "The foregoing copy of the Declaration of Independence has been collated with the original instrument and found correct. I have myself examined the signatures to each. Those executed by Mr. Tyler, are curiously exact imitations, so much so, that it would be difficult, if not impossible, for the closest scrutiny to distinguish them, were it not for the hand of time, from the originals." Rush's reference to "the hand of time" suggests that the signatures were already fading in 1817, only 40 years after they were first affixed to the parchment. One later theory as to why the Declaration was aging so soon after its creation stems from the common 18th-century practice of taking "press copies." Press copies were made by placing a damp sheet of thin paper on a manuscript and pressing it until a portion of the ink was transferred. The thin paper copy was retained in the same manner as a modern carbon copy. The ink was reimposed on a copper plate, which was then etched so that copies could be run off the plate on a press. This "wet transfer" method may have been used by William J. Stone when in 1820 he was commissioned by Secretary of State John Quincy Adams to make a facsimile of the entire Declaration, signatures as well as text. By June 5, 1823, almost exactly 47 years after Jefferson's first draft of the Declaration, the (Washington) National Intelligencer was able to report "that Mr. William J. Stone, a respectable and enterprising Engraver of this City, has, after a labor of three years, completed a fac simile of the original of the Declaration of Independence, now in the archives of the government; that it is executed with the greatest exactness and fidelity; and that the Department of State has become the purchaser of the plate." The copies made from Stone's copperplate established the clear visual image of the Declaration for generations of Americans. The 200 official parchment copies struck from the Stone plate carry the identification "Engraved by W. J. Stone for the Department of State, by order" in the upper left corner followed by "of J. Q. Adams, Sec. of State July 4th 1823." in the upper right corner. "Unofficial" copies that were struck later do not have the identification at the top of the document. Instead the engraver identified his work by engraving "W. J. Stone SC. Washn." near the lower left corner and burnishing out the earlier identification. Since the original Declaration consisted of text and signatures, the later broadsides and lithographs were embellished with borders, vignettes, other decorations, and facsimile signatures. Humphrey Phelps was a map maker in New York, and he together with Bele S. Squire, published a new version of the Declaration in 1832, the same year that Charles Carroll, the last surviving signer of the original Declaration, died. This has the original text and names the signatories in the conventional way, with woodcut illustrations of the American Eagle and the Capitol framing the text, surrounded by elaborate vignettes from the thirteen states with statistical information for each. An elaborate arch with climbing acanthus leaves and topped by the American Eagle is immediately framing the text. Additional vignettes naming the Presidents, reigning Sovereigns, Governors and the National Debt adorn each corner. The whole surrounded by an elaborate border. A very attractive and informative issue [Two copies located by OCLC: Albert Small Collection at University of Virginia, and Yale University].

First as a broadside, then as an important addition in law books.The original of the Declaration [the "parchment" copy which was actually signed by Congress] was displayed, often in very poor conditions, and as a consequence suffered damage: the ink flaked and faded, and the parchment became darkened and creased, etc. Two early facsimile printings of the Declaration were made during the second decade of the 19th century: those of Benjamin Owen Tyler (1818) and John Binns (1819). Both facsimiles used decorative and ornamental elements to enhance the text of the Declaration. Richard Rush, who was Acting Secretary of State in 1817, remarked on September 10 of that year about the Tyler copy: "The foregoing copy of the Declaration of Independence has been collated with the original instrument and found correct. I have myself examined the signatures to each. Those executed by Mr. Tyler, are curiously exact imitations, so much so, that it would be difficult, if not impossible, for the closest scrutiny to distinguish them, were it not for the hand of time, from the originals." Rush's reference to "the hand of time" suggests that the signatures were already fading in 1817, only 40 years after they were first affixed to the parchment.One later theory as to why the Declaration was aging so soon after its creation stems from the common 18th-century practice of taking "press copies." Press copies were made by placing a damp sheet of thin paper on a manuscript and pressing it until a portion of the ink was transferred. The thin paper copy was retained in the same manner as a modern carbon copy. The ink was reimposed on a copper plate, which was then etched so that copies could be run off the plate on a press. This "wet transfer" method may have been used by William J. Stone when in 1820 he was commissioned by Secretary of State John Quincy Adams to make a facsimile of the entire Declaration, signatures as well as text. By June 5, 1823, almost exactly 47 years after Jefferson's first draft of the Declaration, the (Washington) National Intelligencer was able to report "that Mr. William J. Stone, a respectable and enterprising Engraver of this City, has, after a labor of three years, completed a fac simile of the original of the Declaration of Independence, now in the archives of the government; that it is executed with the greatest exactness and fidelity; and that the Department of State has become the purchaser of the plate."The copies made from Stone's copperplate established the clear visual image of the Declaration for generations of Americans. The 200 official parchment copies struck from the Stone plate carry the identification "Engraved by W. J. Stone for the Department of State, by order" in the upper left corner followed by "of J. Q. Adams, Sec. of State July 4th 1823." in the upper right corner. "Unofficial" copies that were struck later do not have the identification at the top of the document. Instead the engraver identified his work by engraving "W. J. Stone SC. Washn." near the lower left corner and burnishing out the earlier identification.Since the original Declaration consisted of text and signatures, the later broadsides and lithographs were embellished with borders, vignettes, other decorations, and facsimile signatures. Humphrey Phelps was a map maker in New York, and he together with Bele S. Squire, published a new version of the Declaration in 1832, the same year that Charles Carroll, the last surviving signer of the original Declaration, died. This has the original text and names the signatories in the conventional way, with woodcut illustrations of the American Eagle and [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Manuscript Document from physician William Bagley, billing the Virginia Military Institute for treatment of a Slave

      Virginia, 1832. IN VERY GOOD CONDITION. One leaf (2 pp.), 8" x 4.5 HIGHLY CURIOUS MEDICAL BILL FOR THE TREATMENT OF A SLAVE AT THE VIRGINIA MILITARY INSTITUTE, dated November 6, 1832 by FRANCIS H. SMITH, superintendent of the Virginia Military Institute, of Lexington, VA. Here Smith offers receipt for "Charges for medical attention & medicine paid by the Va. Mil. Institute for Mr. Bagby on account of negro man John...$29.75..." Smith also records the additional amount of $10.00 for "nursing by Magdalene." The treatment of the slave was clearly UNSUCCESSFUL, as the final item in the invoice is for "grave, coffin & burial expenses..." which cost $8.00. The document is endorsed by Bagby on verso to note the receipt of $37.75 of the total $47.75. * "Francis H. Smith served for fifty years (1839-1889) as VMI's first Superintendent. Smith was born in 1812, graduated from West Point in 1833, and came to Lexington, Virginia in 1839 to lead the newly established Virginia Military Institute. He died in March 1890, a few months after his retirement as Superintendent. He was known as the builder and --after the Civil War-- rebuilder of VMI" (SOURCE: VMI Archives online). * This is a very interesting piece, suitable for exhibition and study. Light toning, usual folds, small loss at bottom margin, else very good. Ex.-coll. Henry E. Luhrs.

        The Trollope Family: being a Rare Print published in Philadelphia in Response to Frances Trollope's Domestic Manners of the Americans, Mocking Mrs. Trollope and Her Family

      Childs & Inman, 1832, No Binding [Framed], First edition, Illustrated By: Johnston, David ClaypooleA Near Fine original Print, first issue, published in Philadelphia in response to Frances Trollope's "Domestic Manners of the Americans" (1832), Frances Trollope's report on Americans and their manners then recently published and executed after a sketch previously made in Cincinnati (1829); professionally deacidified and archivally matted and framed; Artist: David Claypoole Johnston, a noted 19th Century American cartoonist, printmaker, painter, and actor who had aspirations of becoming America's Cruikshank. Copies of the print were placed on sale in September, 1832 and very few have survived -- as of the writing of this description, we have had reported to us only one other copy in private hands. Frances Trollope was the mother of the great Victorian Era novelist Anthony Trollope and the wife to Thomas Anthony Trollope, Anthony's father, a Barrister whose law practice suffered from Trollope's habit of yelling at his Clients, as well as from his other failings. Ultimately, the father gave up his legal practice and took up farming, an endeavor at which he had not experience whatsoever and at which he also was a miserable failure, leaving the family in great financial distress. In 1827, Frances Trollope, with son Henry and daughters Cecillia and Emily [later joined by her husband], relocated to America, living first in Fanny Wright's utopian community in Tennessee and, when that community failed, removing to Cincinnati, a frontier town at the time, to open a Museum and a Bazaar. As Frances Trollope had no experience in that line of work, the enterprise was a miserable failure as well, adding to the family's financial stress. However, after her return to England, the indomitable Mrs. Trollope, having observed the cultural peculiarities of the Americans first-hand, published her debut book, "Domestic Manners of the Americans" (1832), in which she presented a caustic view of the Americans, portraying them as uneducated and lacking in proper manners, and describing America's appalling middle-class egalitarianism and other shortcomings. Acerbic and witty, the book was an instant sensation in England and rescuing the family from the brink of financial ruin and bringing instead prosperity and fame. Of course, the book was not well received in America and of it Mark Twain said "Mrs. Trollope was so handsomely cursed and reviled by this nation [for] telling the truth... she was painting a state of things which did not change at once. ... I remember it." On her trip to and from America, and during her stay there, Mrs. Trollope was accompanied by her three youngest children: her son Henry and her two youngest daughters, Cecilia and Emily, as well as by the French artist August Hervieu. Hervieu's participation, officially as the tutor and companion to the Trollope children, gave rise to much speculation about the exact nature of the relationship between Mrs. Trollope and Hervieu. Clearly the two were close, as Hervieu sold his Art in America to help maintain the group. In the Rare Print offered here, Hervieu is shown painting with a silly-looking Henry serving as a model for Lafayette. A falsely plump Frances Trollope is shown seated with her two unattractively-portrayed fat-cheeked daughters reclined next to her. An older man and and a foolish-looking Thomas Trollope are shown watching Hervieu paint with Thomas Trollope standing in front of hung piece of art depicting a stag. Thomas Trollope is so placed that the animal's horns appear to be coming out of Trollope's head, thus portraying him as being cuckolded. [Cuckolds are sometimes described as "wearing the horns of a cuckold" or just "wearing the horns", an allusion to the mating habits of stags, who yield their mates when defeated by rival male. Interestingly, Anthony Trollope's bookplate itself depicts a stag.]The noteworthy Print offered here takes one back to the very foundations of the writing Trollopes and to the events which gave birth to an important English writing family. The Print is quite rare indeed and this is the only copy we have seen in over 30 years of diligently searching for Trollope rarities; a remarkable survival, a QUITE RARE piece of Trollope ephemera, and a collection-distinguishing item for the Trollope collector, other copies of which can be found at Princeton University, the Pennsylvania Historical Society, the Smithsonian Museum, and the Library of Congress. QUITE RARE INDEED.

        Ansicht des Kreuzganges des Kapuzinerklosters von Amalfi, mit Blick zur dahinter liegenden Grotte, im Vordergrund der Zeichner.

      . Bleistift, auf cremefarbenem Transparentpapier, unten bezeichnet "Amalfi". 22:17 cm. Rechte obere Ecke ergänzt. Ein Aufenthalt Nerlys in Unteritalien 1832/33 ist durch mehrere Zeichnungen mit Motiven aus Sorrent, Neapel und Capri belegt.. Nach dem frühen Tod seines Vaters wuchs Nerly - diesen Namen gab er sich erst in Italien - ab 1815 in der Familie seines Hamburger Onkels auf. Nach einigen Jahren wurde er von einem anderen Onkel, dem angeheirateten Maler H.J. Herterich (1772-1852), im Zeichnen unterrichtet und nachfolgend Lehrling in dessen mit M.S. Speckter (1764-1845) gegründeten Steindruckerei, der ersten Steindruckerei in Norddeutschland. Im Hause Speckters lernte er Freiherr K.F. von Rumohr (1785-1843) kennen, von dem er 1823-1827 eine künstlerische und gesellschaftliche Ausbildung auf dessen Gut Rothenhausen bei Lübeck erhielt. Mit Rumohr unternahm er in diesen Jahren auch Reisen, so nach Dänemark und Ende 1827 eine Reise über Weimar, Dresden und München nach Italien, wo sie 1828 ankamen. Nach dem Abschied von Rumohr zog Nerly nach Rom, wo er bis 1835 ansässig war. Von hier aus unternahm er mehrfach Ausflüge nach Olevano, in die Albaner Berge, nach Terracina, Unteritalien und Sizilien. In Rom selbst spielte er eine bedeutende Rolle innerhalb der deutschen Künstlerschaft, so war er beispielsweise Generalissimus der Ponte-Molle-Gesellschaft. Zu seinen engeren Freunden zählten in Italien F. Preller (1804-1878), E. Speckter (1806-1835) und J.C. Reinhart (1761-1847); als Mentor stand ihm J.A. Koch (1768-1839) zur Seite. Nachdem er 1835 Rom mit dem Wunsch verlassen hatte, eigentlich nach Deutschland zurückzukehren, unternahm er eine zwei Jahre währende Reise über Genua und Mailand, wo er Rumohr wiedertraf, nach Venedig, wo er sich schließlich endgültig niederließ und 1840 heiratete. Kurze Aufenthalte in Tirol und Oberitalien, 1850 und 1862 in Deutschland und 1871 ein letzter Aufenthalt in Rom folgten. In Venedig wurde er zum Professor ernannt und Ehrenmitglied der Kunstakademie. Darüber hinaus wurden ihm der Kronenorden und der Adelstitel durch den König von Württemberg und den preußischen König verliehen; für das preußische Königshaus war er zudem als Kunstagent tätig.

        Asia for the Elucidation of the Abbe Gaultier's Geographical Games

      London: John Harris, 1832. Engraved map, 345 x 432 mm. (image size), original hand-colouring. Scarce educational game featuring Australia. An attractive children's educational map of Australia, Asia and the east coast of Africa.The map is based on the work of the Abbé Gaultier, an educationalist originally from Piedmont, who had settled in France in 1780 and later fled the revolution to London. Gaultier began publishing his works in the late eighteenth century, and his philosophy of teaching geographical knowledge through games was very influential for game-makers and educational publishers on the continent and in England. He died in 1818 but his Geography continued to be reprinted. In 1815 it was "collated with the author's last Paris edition by Jehoshaphat Aspin", a cartographer. (see Juliana Bayfield, 'Games of Virtue and Learning', The La Trobe Journal, 1997). Aspin seems to have produced the first edition of this work in 1821.Aspin's versions of the maps evidently had some success as an entertainment and teaching aid. They were originally issued as a portfolio or atlas, which included maps of many different parts of the world, some blank, as here, and others with geographical information added. Although bibliographical information is a little sketchy, similar English editions appear to have been published in 1821, 1823, 1829 and 1838. This particular map seems to derive from the "fourth" edition, the Atlas adapted to the Abbe? Gaultier's Geographical Games of 1838, in which some maps were dated as early as 1832.All editions of the full atlas are now very scarce, with the 1838 edition being the only one held in Australia, at the National Library of Australia. The National Library also has a copy of this individual map dated 1823, but otherwise identical to this one.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Rom, 13. VIII. 1832. - 2 SS. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt mit Siegelresten und Adresse am Gegenblatt verso (Faltbrief). Gr.-4to. An Christian August Heinrich Clodius (1772-1836), Professor der Philosophie in Leipzig: "Theuerster alter Jugendfreund. Ihr letztes Schreiben habe ich durch Hennig aus Florenz erhalten, wo sich derselbe befindet. Es mußte mir besonders erfreulich seyn, da es mir die Hoffnung gewährt, Sie bald in Rom zu sehen, wodurch mir ein höchst sehnlicher Wunsch erfüllt würde. O wie oft erfreue ich mich in dem Gedanken, mit Ihnen in das alte Rom hinausschieben zu können, wie wir dereinst zu dem Gallischen Thor hinausschoben. Lassen Sie Sie [!] sich ja, von dem Besuche zu Ihrem alten Freund, nicht durch die Fabeln abschrecken, die man in dem liberalen Norddeutschland von den Gefahren von der sogenannten heiligen Armee erdichten mag. Es ist hier alles ruhig: Niemand hat auf einer Reise nach Rom Hindernisse zu befürchten, und soweit erstreckt sich wohl mein diplomatisches Ansehen, um Sie hier vor allen möglichen Unannehmlichkeiten zu schützen. Nur möchte ich Sie daran erinnern sich, wegen der in Deutschland noch wüthenden Cholera, mit einem Gesundheitspasse zu versehen. Sollte ich wirklich so glücklich seyn Sie noch einmal wiederzusehen, so dürften wir wohl so manches mit einander abzuhandeln haben. Ich bin noch immer das, was man zur Zeit unseres Beysammenseyns einen Aristokraten nannte, jetzt einen Absolutisten und Jesuiten zu nennen pflegt, ungeachtet ich mich mit denen von dieser Partey eben auch nicht sonderlich vertrage. Ich suche mich in meinen Gedanken möglichst von der Gegenwart zu entfernen: sie hat für mich kein Interesse mehr; und ich kann, in der gegenwärtigen Richtung der Zeit, nur die Auflösung alles dessen sehen, was die menschliche Gesellschaft durch göttliche Bande verknüpft, und dem Leben wahren Gehalt ertheilt. Gern versetze ich mich daher in die Zeiten einer würdigen Vergangenheit, gegen die mir die Gegenwart flach, seicht, und von aller Schönheit des Lebens entfernt, vorkommt. Von alle dem wäre mündlich zwischen uns ein Mehreres zu reden. Grüßen Sie mir herzlich meine alten Freunde, Herrmann, und Heinroth, und empfehlen Sie mich dem Dr. Härtel und seiner Schwester [.]". - Einige Randeinrisse von Siegelöffnung. Der Sohn des Anthropologen Ernst Platner studierte an der Akademie seiner Heimatstadt Leipzig, bevor er sich in Dresden und Wien weiterbildete. Im Jahre 1800 ließ er sich in Rom nieder, wo er den Rest seines Lebens blieb und 1823 zum Konsul des Sächsischen Hofs ernannt wurde. Sein um ein Jahr älterer Freund und Korrespondenzpartner, Sohn des Dichters und Philosophen Christian August Clodius, war schon seit 1795 Dozent in Leipzig und erwarb sich Verdienste als Herausgeber Seumes und Klopstocks.

      London: Edward Moxon, 1832. First edition. 47 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Original cloth. Some rubbing to spine ends, inner hinges professionally repaired. Pictorial bookplate of William Bell Scott. Original Cloth "The poem was written in 1819 on the occasion of the infamous 'Peterloo' affair, and was sent to Leigh Hunt, for publication in The Examiner, before November 1819. Hunt did not publish it then, but saved it till 1832, and then issued it with a preface of considerable interest" (Forman, pp. 112-113). With the pictorial bookplate of William Bell Scott (1811-1890), the Pre-Raphaelite poet, painter, and critic. A friend of Swinburne and Rossetti, Scott was noted for his mural designs. He edited a series of collections of the English Romantic poets, each with substantial memoirs, including Shelley and Coleridge in 1874. His posthumous Autobiographical Notes "is a valuable contribution to the history of literary and artistic society ... Blake and Shelley were his chief models, and Rossetti's friendship was a continual stimulus to him" (DNB). The bookplate depicts a palette and brushes, an open book, and an elaborate lamp, from which a genie is emerging, before an arched stone window giving upon a night sky.

        Runs of two 19th-century periodicals: FIGARO IN LONDON & THE LITERARY GUARDIAN AND SPECTATOR OF BOOKS, SCIENCE, FINE ARTS, ETC

      London: William Strange ; William Tindall, 1832. cloth spine with paper-covered boards with two paper labels on front board. 4to. cloth spine with paper-covered boards with two paper labels on front board. Various. Two runs of early nineteenth-century periodical bound together. #1-62 ; #1-45 issues. The first is the well-known Figaro in London , with a title page Volume 1 for the year 1832. No. 1 is dated Saturday, December 10, 1831, followed by a complete run through No. 62 dated Saturday, February 9, 1832 (which should be 1833). No. 61 is correctly dated as Saturday, February 2, 1833. (Union List of Serials, 1558).There is no title page for Volume 2, although the run certainly goes well into it. Figaro in London was published by William Strange, edited by Gilbert á Beckett and illustrated by Robert Seymour. Strange was a bookseller in London who carried many of the popular papers of the day. á Beckett went on to greater fame as one of the editors of Punch, of which Figaro in London was a precursor. Seymour, gifted illustrator and caricaturist, was well known. He committed suicide while illustrating the Pickwick Papers. This is a complete run of The Literary Guardian andSpectator of Books, Science , Fine Arts, Etc. (Union List of Serials , 2438). They have been bound somewhat in reverse. #28-45 precede #1-27 . The publisher was William Tindall. It may be noted that this paper could be purchased weekly at William Strange's bookshop. There are few illustrations, mostly those of a scientific nature. Per OCLC, while a number of libraries have The Literary Guardian on microfiche, very few have actual copies. The spine cloth is separating, some of the signatures have come loose, and the boards are very worn. The pages are surprisingly good, although some of them are tattered at the edges.

        A Chancellor in 1832! 7-1/2" x 11" Watercolor on Matted Board.

      1832 - Watercolor Caricature of Sir Edward Sugden [Sugden, Sir Edward (1781-1875)]. A Chancellor in 1832! 7-1/2" x 11" watercolor on board, attractively matted. Great Britain, Possibly Ireland, 1835? Toning, a few minor waterstains, small inkstain near bottom right corner, otherwise fine. * Possibly intended as the basis for a lithograph, this cartoon depicts a drunken Lord Sugden, wig askew and clutching a table for balance. He is addressing the Bench: "My Lord, (hiccup) this Sir Edward Bug--no, damn it, I Mean Sir Edward Sug-hiccup) den-this Bug-Sug-Bug! My Lord, I beg pardon, I'm rather & & &." There is a quote from Shakespeare below the image: "It fitteth not a Noble thus to plead!" Sugden, lawyer, judge and conservative politician, was Solicitor General of Great Britain in 1829-30, Lord Chancellor of Ireland in 1835, then from 1841 to 1846, and Lord Chancellor of Great Britain in 1852. He is wearing barrister's robes in this caricature, which indicates the period in his career between 1831 and 1835, when he practiced as a barrister and sat in the House of Commons. The caricature appears to be a commentary on his role as a leading opponent of the Reform Bill of 1832, which made him a prominent figure in British politics. The artist refers to Sugden as Chancellor, which leads us to date the image to 1835, the year of his Irish Chancellorship and a time when he was famous for his opposition to the Reform Bill.

      Paris and Strasbourg, 1832-1833-[1835]. 4to (35.0 x 26.2 cm) and large folio (52.3 x 35.1 cm). Text: III(1) (1833) half title, title (to the mammals and birds) 209 pp., including the "Vertébrés a sang froid" (reptiles and amphibians) and the "Mollusques", two finely engraved endpieces; III(2) (1832) half title, title, 400 pp., one engraved endpiece; Atlas with 55 plates of which 39 finely hand-coloured (numbered I, Ia, II-LIV). Contemporary uniform green half morocco over marbled boards, borders with intricate patterned gilt lines. Spines with five raised bands. Compartments with gilt vignettes and gilt titles. Marbled endpapers. All edges marbled.l The very rare complete zoological results of a scientific expedition to the Peloponnese (Greece) lead by Jean Baptiste Georges Geneviève Marcellin Bory de Saint-Vincent (1780-1846). The voyage was made on behalf of the French government following a military operation to eradicate the Egyptian army of Ibrahim Pasha in the wake of the Greek war of independence. The whole operation, including the scientific researches, was modelled after Napoleon's campaign in Egypt, 25 years earlier. This is the entire volume III, Zoologie, with all 55 plates. Volumes I and II contain the narrative by Bory, architecture and archeology, geography, geology and mineralogy, and volume III contains a second part, on botany, however, these are not included. The area was surprisingly understudied by zoologists, which resulted in the discovery and descriptions of many new species. The parts were written by specialists in each field, namely Isodore and Étienne Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire jointly for the birds and mammals, Gabriel Bibron and de Bory described the herpetology and the fishes, Gérard Paul Deshayes the Mollusca, Bory added a "Notice sur les polypiers de la Grèce" (all in volume III part one). In volume III part 2, Auguste Brullé described the crustaceans, arachnids, Myriapoda, Scorpiones and Insecta (with numerous new species) and, in a 5 pp. section, the annelids. Many species including several reptiles and molluscs were described and figured for the first time in this work, which is one of the rarest works in natural history. One vignette, tail piece of the Mollusca section, shows Chama brocchii Deshayes, described in this work. The plates, by Paul Louis Oudart (illustrating most of the lizards and snakes), Jean Gabriel Prêtre (molluscs), Jean Charles Werner, and E. Guérin (the insects), arguably the best French natural history illustrators of the 19th century, are of an outstanding quality, rich in detail and beautifully hand-coloured. Corners a bit rubbed. Some pages, notably the endpapers, spotted, a few hand-coloured plates with some spotting, mostly in the margins, several plain plates (mostly depicting fossil molluscs) more heavily spotted. The atlas is without title page but it is unclear if one has been issued as it is not mentioned in any bibliography. According to Stafleu & Cowan the plates were among the last parts published. Two plates with a short marginal tear (one with an old repair). Otherwise a superb copy in a fine contemporary binding. Dean I, p. 157; Horn-Schenkling, 2695; Nissen ZBI, 4628; Stafleu & Cowan, 672.

        The Trollope Family: being a Rare Print published in Philadelphia in Response to Frances Trollope's Domestic Manners of the Americans, Mocking Mrs. Trollope and Her Family

      Childs & Inman, Philadelphia 1832 - A Near Fine original Print, first issue, published in Philadelphia in response to Frances Trollope's "Domestic Manners of the Americans" (1832), Frances Trollope's report on Americans and their manners then recently published and executed after a sketch previously made in Cincinnati (1829); professionally deacidified and archivally matted and framed; Artist: David Claypoole Johnston, a noted 19th Century American cartoonist, printmaker, painter, and actor who had aspirations of becoming America's Cruikshank. Copies of the print were placed on sale in September, 1832 and very few have survived -- as of the writing of this description, we have had reported to us only one other copy in private hands. Frances Trollope was the mother of the great Victorian Era novelist Anthony Trollope and the wife to Thomas Anthony Trollope, Anthony's father, a Barrister whose law practice suffered from Trollope's habit of yelling at his Clients, as well as from his other failings. Ultimately, the father gave up his legal practice and took up farming, an endeavor at which he had not experience whatsoever and at which he also was a miserable failure, leaving the family in great financial distress. In 1827, Frances Trollope, with son Henry and daughters Cecillia and Emily [later joined by her husband], relocated to America, living first in Fanny Wright's utopian community in Tennessee and, when that community failed, removing to Cincinnati, a frontier town at the time, to open a Museum and a Bazaar. As Frances Trollope had no experience in that line of work, the enterprise was a miserable failure as well, adding to the family's financial stress. However, after her return to England, the indomitable Mrs. Trollope, having observed the cultural peculiarities of the Americans first-hand, published her debut book, "Domestic Manners of the Americans" (1832), in which she presented a caustic view of the Americans, portraying them as uneducated and lacking in proper manners, and describing America's appalling middle-class egalitarianism and other shortcomings. Acerbic and witty, the book was an instant sensation in England and rescuing the family from the brink of financial ruin and bringing instead prosperity and fame. Of course, the book was not well received in America and of it Mark Twain said "Mrs. Trollope was so handsomely cursed and reviled by this nation [for] telling the truth. she was painting a state of things which did not change at once. . I remember it." On her trip to and from America, and during her stay there, Mrs. Trollope was accompanied by her three youngest children: her son Henry and her two youngest daughters, Cecilia and Emily, as well as by the French artist August Hervieu. Hervieu's participation, officially as the tutor and companion to the Trollope children, gave rise to much speculation about the exact nature of the relationship between Mrs. Trollope and Hervieu. Clearly the two were close, as Hervieu sold his Art in America to help maintain the group. In the Rare Print offered here, Hervieu is shown painting with a silly-looking Henry serving as a model for Lafayette. A falsely plump Frances Trollope is shown seated with her two unattractively-portrayed fat-cheeked daughters reclined next to her. An older man and and a foolish-looking Thomas Trollope are shown watching Hervieu paint with Thomas Trollope standing in front of hung piece of art depicting a stag. Thomas Trollope is so placed that the animal's horns appear to be coming out of Trollope's head, thus portraying him as being cuckolded. [Cuckolds are sometimes described as "wearing the horns of a cuckold" or just "wearing the horns", an allusion to the mating habits of stags, who yield their mates when defeated by rival male. Interestingly, Anthony Trollope's bookplate itself depicts a stag.] The noteworthy Print offered here takes one back to the very foundations of the writing Trollopes and to the events which gave birth to an important English writing family.
