        Reise in das innere Nord-Amerika Die Jahre 1832-1834 [Gebundene Ausgabe] Maximilian Prinz zu Wied (Autor), Karl Bodmer (Autor) North America Völkerkunde Reisen Reiseberichte Nord- / Mittelamerika Indi

      Ein prächtiger Bildband mit faszinierenden Bildern des Schweizer Malers Karl Bodmer und Auszügen aus den Reisetagebüchern des Prinzen zu Wied. Er sollte in keiner Bibiliothek des Geschichts- oder Kulturinteressierten fehlen. Auf ihrer "Reise in das Innere Nordamerika" (1832-1834) haben der deutsche Fürst Prinz Maximilian zu Wied und der Schweizer Maler Karl Bodmer ein Werk für die Ewigkeit geschaffen. Gleichsam die Worte aus den Reisetagebücher zu Wieds als auch die künstlerischen Fertigkeiten Bodmers, die diese fantastischen Gemälde erst möglich gemacht haben, tragen mit dazu bei, daß die Erinnerung und das Wissen von den Lebensweisen der besuchten Völker nicht ausgelöscht werden. Auch wenn einige der besuchten Stämme fast ausgestorben sind, ihre Kultur zerstört ist, so leben sie doch in den Erzählungen und Bildern weiter! Auf sehr anschauliche Art und Weise werden versunkene Indianerkulturen hier wieder lebendig. Die Aufzeichnungen des Prinzen zählen noch heute zur ersten Wahl der Völkerkundeliteratur. Auch wenn sie nicht die ersten Forscher waren, die die Stämme besucht haben (vor ihnen waren 1804 - 1806 ja schon Lewis & Clark zur Erforschung des Westens unterwegs), und auch nach ihnen noch Maler und Völkerkundler die Stämme besuchten (z.b. George Catlin), so zählen die Aquarelle Bodmers doch zu den detailgenausten und herausragendsten Arbeiten, die je ein Künstler am "Lebenden Objekt" porträtiert hat. Die Bilder Bodmers, werden in diesem aufwendig gestalteten Bildband würdig präsentiert. Einzig die Reiseerzählungen sind für meinen Geschmack zu sehr gekürzt worden (was sich aber dadurch erklärt, daß Bilder und Text in Zusammenhang gebracht werden sollten - und für viele Passagen aus den sehr umfangreichen Reisetagebüchern des Prinzen, gibt es kein entsprechendes künstlerisches Vermächtnis von Karl Bodmer. Insgesamt jedoch ein Bildband der jeden einzelnen Cent wert ist.

        Cartes-de-visite of 1000 Mile Tree, Weber Canyon, Utah [And:] unidentified Western railroad view

      Salt Lake City, Utah: Savage & Ottinger Fine Arts Gallery. 2-1/2 x 4 inches. Mounted; about fine with some spotting. 2-1/2 x 4 inches. British-born Charles Savage (1832-1909) came to New York in the 1850's and after being introduced to Mormonism and photography, moved to Salt Lake City. In partnership with George M. Ottinger (1833-1917) he was one of the most successful photographers West of the Mississippi, specializing in Rocky Mountain landscapes, life on the plains, and Salt Lake City and Mormonism related images. "During the partnership, Savage, worked as field man, preferring the out-of-doors. Throughout the remainder of the nineteenth century he was the best-known photographer between the Mississippi and Texas. His photograph of the joining of the Central Pacific and Union Pacific railroads at Promontory is among the most celebrated documentary photographs of the American West" (Collector's Guide to Nineteenth Century Photographs, 62). Savage's studio burned in 1883, destroying most of his prints and negatives. Savage images are accordingly scarce The 1000 Mile Tree marks the length of the Union Pacific Railroad, traveling west from Omaha, Nebraska.

        Series of Letters written by J. W. Hollis, printer of Winchester, Virginia to Joseph Funk, early American composer, Harrisonburg, Virginia,1832-1836

      9 letters, 17 pages, quarto, written in ink, in a legible hand, the letters were bound in an album at some point, the foredges were trimmed, with the loss of some text, however the missing text can generally be deduced. 8 of the letters were written in 1832, one was written in 1836. An unusual correspondence in which a Shenandoah Valley printer discusses editorial matters with Joseph Funk, a Shenandoah Valley composer, who authored several Shenandoah Valley tune-books. Eight of theletters in this series between J. W. Hollis and Joseph Funk discuss various editorial changes to Funk's A Compilation of Genuine Church Music, which Hollis printed in 1832. The letter from 1836 was written during the period Funk was working on The Confession of Faith, which Hollis printed in 1837. The letters discuss the editing and revising of Funk's Genuine Church Music, in considerable detail. The letters, from a Southern printer, to Funk, a pioneer American composer, are of considerable interest to scholars of American music and hymns.Joseph Funk (1778-1862) was a pioneer American music teacher, publisher, and an early American composer. He invented a shape note system in 1851 for the Harmonia Sacra. Funk was born April 6, 1778 in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, the son of Henry and Barbara (Showalter) Funk, and a grandson of Bishop Heinrich Funck, a German Palatine settler of Bernese Swiss descent. Bishop Funck came to America in 1719, and was the first Mennonite bishop in America. As a boy, Joseph moved with his parents to Rockingham County, Virginia, and spent the rest of his life there. Funk married Elizabeth Rhodes in 1804, and the couple had five children. After her death, he married Rachel Britton, and they raised nine children. He was a member of the Mennonite Church. In 1847, he established the first Mennonite printing house in the United States, at Mountain Valley, Virginia (renamed Singers Glen in 1860). Funk and his sons were active in organizing and teaching many singing schools in Virginia. Funk died December 24, 1862, and is buried in Singers Glen. Funk compiled and published seven books and periodicals: Ein allgemein nützliche Choral-Music (1816) A Compilation of Genuine Church Music (1832) The Confession of Faith (1837) A Collection of Psalms, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs (1847) The Reviewer Reviewed (1857) The Southern Musical Advocate and Singer's Friend J. and D. Brenneman, HymnsThe 1847 fourth edition of Funk's A Compilation of Genuine Church Music was the first publication by Joseph Funk and Sons at Singers Glen. The name was changed to Harmonia Sacra in 1851. The book is still in use by Mennonites today. The Southern Musical Advocate and Singer's Friend was a 16 page monthly periodical published by Funk from 1859 to 1861. It was a forerunner of The Musical Million and Fireside Friend, a periodical published by Funk's grandson, Aldine S. Kieffer. Joseph Funk's sons continued the printing business after his death. The Ruebush-Kieffer Company purchased the press in 1878. "Winchester, February 7, 1832 Dear Sir, Your letter of the 18th ultimo came duly to hand, and should have been acknowledged ere this but for the constant press of business with which we have had to struggle - rendered the more laborious by the continued indisposition of one of our hands. This will account for the fact, that as yet but three forms of your work have been completed. T-morrow we receive an additional hand, and I then hope to accomplish one form per week regularly. In your letter of the above date you point out the errors in the first form which had escaped my observation - and you suggest that in these cases the copy may be incorrect. I will not attempt to shield myself at expence of the copyist, but must confess that upon examination I find the copy correct the errors, therefore, are my own. The effect of this, however, was to stir me up to double diligence in revising the proof-sheet of the second form - and in this I had vainly hoped all errors had been detected. But alas! Your letter of the 1st instant has proved to me how presumptuous my expectations have been, for you point out one of many errors which it contains. - I say presumtious, because my predecessors in this office (Mr. Davis), who is acknowledged, universally, to be one of the most correct, (if not the most) printers in the United States, has acknowledged that it is impossible for a man to detect all the errors in music unless he be perfectly master of the science: and in the work which he printed for Messrs. Clayton & Carvell (The Virginia Harmony) there are many errors. It was, therefore, downright presumption in me to expect to accomplish that which he could not. Yet I acknowledge that I have had variety enough to cherish the idea. ... on my part whether or not - a few errors may exist. I do assure you such is not the fact. At least so far as your work is concerned, my anxiety to be correct has led me to "consume the midnight oil" in revising and re-revising each successive proof-sheet. My want of success mortifies me not a little. Nor does it afford me any consolation to learn that no musical work has ever yet been published (at least I am so informed by masters of the science) in which someerrors did not exist. The error you mention in "Castle Street" is, I find, on referring to the copy, also mine. I am well aware that notes of different shapes. That is fa, mi, la sol should not be on the same space or line - how it escaped me I cannot tell, - it certainly was not for want strict attention, nor yet for want of knowledge of the fact you mention. I can now see it at a glance. I would state to you that I have discovered and corrected several errors in copy, but for the fear that you would think I offered it as some palliation for those I have made. I shall therefore content myself till I have again the pleasure of seeing you, when I will point them out. In the third form, which you have probably received ere this, I am sorry to say there is an error in the metre of "Zion." You had marked the tune for insertion without giving the metre. This I did not notice until after the tune was in type; I then went to all the music masters within my reach, but they could not class it, saying that the plan was new and entirely unknown to them. Under such circumstances, what could I do? - To distribute the types again, in order to complete my form (having just types enough for one form), would have been hard. In addition to this, I was very much hurried. Observing that you had classed 2 10's & 2 11's as metre 13, I dubbed Zion (which is 2 10s & 2 11's) as metre 13 also - I observe in your letter of the 1st you have classed it metre 34. You suggest the propriety of numbering the verses, lest those of one tune should be taken for the other. I presume you to allude to cases where a part of a tune (or half a line) is given at the bottom of a page. For the sake of uniformity I would object to this. Besides, there is no absolute necessity for this, as in all cases the verses at the bottom belong to the tune which is finished there - and not to the one which is commenced ..." [Winchester, undated, Postmarked March 22, 1832] "Dear Sir, Your letter of the 20th has this moment [come] to hand, wherein you acknowledge the receipt of [the] 6th and 7th forms. You point out three errors. ... is the word Magdeburg- which, in the letter authorizing insertion, is so written, but in the book containing ... index it is written "Magdaburg." Observing the in[con]sistency, and being unable to print it both ways fortunately concluded both were wrong, and Madgeburg, (the name of one of the Hanseatic cities...) was what you intended. I shall not agai[n] however, presume to alter. The error in the tenor of "Lisbon" is mine - that [in] the bass is your's - how they escaped three revisi[ons] of the proof sheet I know not. I was not aware of the turning over of "Wiltsh[ire"] until your letter was received. I regret it - in t[he] case it might have been avoided, certainly Bu[t] the 8th form (now printing) I will forward to you tomorrow... Be assured, dear sir, that although the latter f[orm] may have more errors than the preceding forms, it [is not?] owing to any decrease of attention on my part - I w[ill] revise the proof threetimes. In conclusion, I must candidly confess my income[petence] to fulfill the task correctly - I have tested it fairly. Cou[ld] you make an arrangement with any of the teachers [of] this place to revise the proof-sheet it would, dear sir, move a mountain weight from the shoulders of your sincere well-wisher J.W. Hollis" "Winchester, July 8, 1832 Dear Sir: I received yours of the 6th this morning. ... the tunes you desire me to omit is "Amanda," which[h] was already printed, as you will perceive the form which accompanies this. With regard [to] the payments, Mr. Funk, it is a matter with wh[ich] I have nothing to do: I have never doubted yo[ur] ability nor your readiness to make them, no[r] have I ever heard it doubted by others. ... I have but few tunes left and they are su[ch] as I cannot use, without dividing on the odd [pa[ge] I fear I shall be detained two or three days in consequence, until more can be received..." "Winchester July 30, 1832 Dear Sir :- Your letter of the 27th inst. Enclosing matter for the first form, came safely to hand on Saturday last - (and I must acknowledge the due receipt of your favors of the 16th and 19th instants). You have received ere this, the twentiethform fr[om] the contents of your last I find that that you confidently e[x]pected the fifth. But, sir, in your letter of the 16th you d[i]rected me to proceed with the nineteenth and twentieth in your letter of the 19th you say "If you have not comm[e]nced the 20th, go on with the fifth," &c. When that letter came [to] hand (Saturday, July 21) there were five pages of the 20th form type; had there been but 2 or 3 I would cheerfully have de[tec]ted them and set the 5th. I trust the difference is not mater[ial]. The first form of the book shall be ready for your re[view] on Monday the 6th August, if Providence grants me life and health. The characters for the poetry we have not, but ... the substitutes you suggest will answer every purpose. My dear sir, might we not insert the copy-right at all eve[nts] the grant is a matter of course - there can be no doubt... the form is, I believe, unvarying. However, this may [be] determined when we see you. From your silence with regard to 2 or 3 last for[ms] I fear you have found them incorrect; I would rath[er] you had communicated the fact to me, if such be the ca[se] a knowledge of the fact is less disagreeable than this suspe[ct] ..." "Winchester, Aug. 16, 1832 Dear Sir, Your letter of the 14th instant was received yesterday, with the tables enclosed. The only difficulty in the composition of these tables which I apprehended from the first, was and is the want of dashes. If I can accomplish it at all, I must necessarily (owing to the scarcity of dash[es)] patch or piece it very much, thereby destroying the regularity or beauty of its appearance. I di[d] not and do not doubt that I can complete it resorting to patch work - but I was aware that owing to this fact, its appearance, when done would not be creditable to the workman - and therefor[e] it was that I endeavored to avoid it. I have made a calculation of the different columns this morning and find that I will be obliged to cro[p] them much in order to get the first 6 in the leng[th] of the page. In the 2d, 3d, 4th, 5th & 6th columns, I have to contract the words major key and minor k[ey] thus:- maj. key - min. key; and also after maj. key I mu[st] insert the note instead of the letter f-a-w - and so of after min. key. These words occur but once in each colu[mn] and I hope this contraction will be unobjectionable [es] pecially as they appear in full in the first column ... I believe I stated that it was impossible to print it as written - if so it was a mistake, I had made one or two hasty and ineffectual attempts ere that letter was written; but having nothing else to do, I afterwards went more deliberately about it, and I flatter myself I have succeeded to your satisfaction. I have even vanity enough to suppose that I have improved it, in this: - by carrying out the leaders [- - - -] in the intervals where the semitones occur, from one staff to another. I know not that you will understand me - but a glance at the table (a proof sheet of which you will receive with this) will detect it. Having been waiting for copy for nearly two days, I yesterday took a proof of the five pages which accompany this, and corrected them. I believe you will find all the errors enumerated in your letter in the first three pages, corrected e[except for the word Time, which I will alter before it goes to press] - you, however, missed several. Should the table, or any other part of the matter be incorrect, you will please mark the errors and send them to me immediately - I wish the form to go to press on Tuesday next, expecting to receive the intervening pages on Saturday. I concluded you were ill, not hearing from you on Tuesday; and, believe me, sir, I rejoice to know that you are convalescent. The attack, I trust, had its origin in nothing more serious than the fatigue of your late journey. My own health thank God, continues "the even tenor of its way" - that is, I am neither well nor ill. - The physician would fain persuade me that I am in a decline , and recommends a relaxation from business: - I do not believe him ... I am very much pleased to hear that the 25th for[m] is errorless (excuse my coining) ; I hope to hear the same report of the 5th in your next ..." "Winchester, Septr 18, 1832 Dear Sir, By this day's mail I received yours of yesterday, with copy enclosed. I do not think the matter sent will fill the form - indeed I would rather it should not exceed the 7th page, since it concludes the elucidation. The index ought, of course, to commence on the odd page, and it would look better if the preceding page was entirely blank. - Should it not exceed the 7th page, I will go on to print the form with the 8th page blank, unless you receive this in time to instruct me otherwise. In the hope, however, that you will be able to answer this by Saturday's mail, I will keep the form until that time, and submit to your decision whe[n] provided the matter sent should not exceed th[e] 7th page, I shall leave the 8th blank or commenc[e] the metrical index upon it. - Allow me, sir, here to point out to you two singular errors in y[our] last letter, which may have an important bear[ing] upon your selections of music for the remain[ing] forms. In the 2d paragraph of your letter you ... "The metrical Index, which will occupy, I presume[e] three pages will be next; then there would [be?] seven pages left on the 4th form for music" - No, only five pages left - a mistake of two pages. ... the General Index will occupy two pages and the errata one, which only five pages left for music - leaving but ten pages in all for music, instead of fourteen, as in your calculation. Ten pages I think I can set up, so that there will be no difficulty about the indexes. I hope you will be able to furnish the balance immediately - I am very anxious to finish the composition at least two weeks from this date. We (or rather Mr. Brooks) have lately undertaken a heavy job (printing Lottery tickets); we ought to commence on the 1st October, and promised to do so, expecting to complete your work by the middle of this month. Before we can begin however, I shall be obliged to go to Baltimore, Philadelphia, or perhaps, New York, to get the necessary materials, which will occupy one or two weeks. Under such circumstances, I know you will send it on as soon as possible..." "Winchester. Sept. 28, 1832 Dear Sir, I must in a few words acknowledge the receipt of all your letters together with the copy to complete the work. With this you will receive the third form I have my fears, I know not why, that there is something[g] wrong about it. I have read it the fourth time without detc[t] ing any thing, but still the impression remains. Pray [re]lieve my anxiety by return mail. In one of your late letters you express an earnest desire that the work may be completed by nextWednesday. My dear sir, it is impossible - wou[ld] have been impossible under other circumstances. .. I have never witnessed such a press of work before, we are now struggling under. Do no not imagine th[at] we have undertakenany regular work, and that [it] is interfering with yours. It is a run of small job work, from the substantial friends and supporters of the establishment - such as we could not possibly turn away, or postpone. We have all the forceo[ur] office can accommodate, and are pushing all hands till 10 and 11 o'clock every night. I trust we will be ready for the wagon on to-morrow two we[eks} (Saturday, October ). Of this however I will advise [you] positively hereafter. In the metrical index I observe the words ma[jor] and minor inserted with the names of the tunes that will be in the 4th and 26th forms; please advise me of their classes ... "Heavenly Vision" has no metre prefixed. ... Your arrangement, or calculation of space, proves very correct; generally; on the 28th page, however (the 1st of music) you direct 2 tunes ("Milan" and "London") one of which, only, is there inserted, because of the "Bastard Title" (technically speaking). - This, I presume, you have overlooked entirely as there is no allusion to it in any of your letters. In the absence of instruction on this point it is inserted in the following words and manner: - "A Compilation ofGenuine Church Music." Such is the form which custom sanctions - you will, I think approve it. "Milan" is the tune there inserted, containing only 4 or 5 four-line verses in all. Could you not add 4 more verses, that I may have eight-line verses at the bottom? My reason is, that as it now stands the "Bastard Title" must be sunk too low on the page to please my eye at least. My dear sir, if I have omitted to answer any queries contained in your late letters, pray excuse me, for really I have so many matters to think of that I am scarcely capable of acting or saying; and I am confident I have forgotten one-half of the things I wished to say to you..." "Winchester, Oct. 3, 1832 Dear Sir, Your letter of yesterday declaring my fears gr[ow] less with regard to the 3d form afforded me inspeakab[le re] life and gratification, and I thank you for yo[ur] prompt answer. With this you will receive the fo[urth] form - concerning it I have no fears - I may be mistaken. I had consulted M[r] Hart with regard to the tunes inserted.. this form, and learned to distinguish [the?] modes. We commenced printing this ... on Monday - a considerable portion be[ing] done before your letter was received, pre[vented] me from consulting Dr. Hill on the subject[t of] your motto: of course you would not [want?] it inserted in a part only. I gave y[ou] to understand in my last that this form would not go to press before I received your [an]swer; but I found the press unoccupied on [that] day, and thought it a pity to lose the time .. regret your motto was not timely received, [I] think it would have been very appropri[ate] ... The 26th form will contain "Heavenly Vision", "Conversion", "Delight," "Bath Abbey" "Queensborough," General Index & Errata:- "Christian Soldier, only, of those designated by you, is omitted. Excuse brevity, bad pen, thick ink and great haste..." "Winchester, March 17, 1836 Dear Sir, A day or two since we received your letter 9th inst (post marked 12th) and take this early opportune[ity of] replying - we should have written long since, but in expectation of seeing you in Winchester it was de[layed] from time to time. We received the music books sen[t by] stage, but have not as yet sold any of them. Previou[sly] their arrival there was much inquiry for them, but has so happened they have not been called for since ... there is no doubt they will speedily obrain general [cir] culation in this quarter. The enclosure of $ 80 came safely to hand we made a memo of its [re]caption on the margin of your paper, which we [sup]posed you would notice ... Mr. Mason's fee is not yet paid, [he was] in Washington at the time it was received, and h[as] been absent ever since; as soon as he returns [we] shall attend to your request in that matter ... Mr. Clayton's book is now out; it contains 200 pages is printed on paper of much better quality than [y]ours. He sells it at $ 1 per copy, or $ 75 per hundred. [it] is considerably improved in all respects - there are [s]till some figured tunes in it - say eight or 10. We [h]ave no copy of it in the office, or we would (not [bein]g ourselves acquainted with the character of the tunes) [ha]ve it examined and send you further information [on] that subject. We have not seen a bound copy; [we?] believe, however, the binding to be inferior to [you]rs. Mr. Balch was here nearly all the winter, [bu]t is now at Halifax C. H. Va. His name is [Sam]uel H. Balch. Not having referred to our agreement, we do [no]t know whether, as you suggest, the time has arrived ... the balance coming to us is due, nor indeed, [are?] we prepared to say what that balance is; having [ye]t no regular account of what has been paid ... we have left that account entirely in your ... hands; if however, it puts you to no inconvenience, it will be a great favor to us if you ... discharge it. If not due, a reasonable deduction [can?] cheerfully be made. We are much in want [of] 150 against the 25th inst. ..."

Externally somewhat rubbed and a little soiled, some judicious restoration to the spines and cornerstan-burn at the corners of the endpapers, pale toning to the text-blocks, but overall very good.

Clausewitz's works were published posthumously, edited by his widow, and these, the first three volumes of ten, contain the first appearance of Vom Kriege (On War), his dialectical analysis of the function of war in human society. "The book is less a manual of strategy and tactics, although it incorporates the lessons learned from the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, than a general enquiry into the interdependence of politics and warfare and the principles governing either or both. published by his widow [it] won immediate recognition as the most profound exposition of the philosophy of war - a place that has never been disputed" (PMM). Carter and Muir's estimation in 1967 of the continuing relevance of Clausewitz's work is confirmed by Daniel Moran in his article on Clausewitz in The Oxford Companion to Military History (2001) where it is described as "the most important general treatment of its subject yet produced".

        More's Navarino Auricula [Pl. 58]

      London, Published by James Ridgeway 1832 - Robert Sweet (1783-1835) (editor), Edwin Dalton Smith (1823-1846) after J. Watts (engraver). A lovely copperplate engraving with exquisite original hand-color, in near fine condition and with accompanying text sheet from 'The Florist's Guide and Cultivator's Directory or drawings of the choicest flowers Cultivated by Florists.' Published in London by James Ridgway, 1827-1832. Dimensions: 6 2/5"x 9 3/5" (Sheet Size), 5" x 8" (Plate Mark). Flower gardens, grown and perfected for displays and competitions, were hugely popular in seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth century Britain. Robert Sweet, for which the botanical genus 'Sweetia' is named, initially published his Florist's Guide and Cultivator's Directory of ornamental garden flowers illustrated as botanical studies as a periodical, a common practice for botanical collections in the 19th century. Sweet, a skilled and highly sought after gardener to wealthy landowners, was elected a fellow of the Linnean Society in 1812. Edwin Dalton Smith, a British botanical artist at the top of his field, as evident in this splendid engraving, was described by the botanical historian Wilfred Blunt, a "considerable artist of small-scale work who produced finely executed paintings with jewel-like color." ***If you frame up this item with Arader Galleries you can take a 50% discount off the listed price of this work of art.*** Cataloged by Josephine Arader.

A few have pencil marginalia and light soiling to edges. Locations of the 70 telegraph companies included in this set range from Nova Scotia to California. The American Telegraph Company and the Postal Telegraph-Cable Company have the most telegrams in this set. The content of most telegrams are business dealings and family matters.

        Interessante assieme di 4 lettere a.f. indirizzate al Maresciallo Ignazio Thaon di Revel, 1832-1833

      1832. Gruppo di quattro lettere in-8 autografe firmate (C. Albert), scritte in francese, secondo l'uso della casa di Savoia, indirizzate da Carlo Alberto (re di Sardegna dal 1831) al Maresciallo Ignazio Thaon di Revel (1760-1835), dell'illustre famiglia di militari sabaudi: ''A Son Excellence Le Maréchal Compte de Rével'', come si legge sulla busta con sigillo in ceralacca integro che accompagna una delle missive. Comprende: due brevi messaggi di quattro righe, di cui uno datato 19 juin 1832, firmati ''Votre affetionné ami C. Alert''; due lettere più lunghe (1 p. in-8 ciascuna), datate 9 juillet e 13 juillet 1833, di particolare interesse per il contenuto. Riguardano la disciplina dell'Esercito in un momento molto diffilcile: gruppi di rivoltosi di matrice repubblicana e mazziniana (come la Giovine Italia e i Federati) stavano diffondendo opuscoli propagandistici; il sovrano afferma che qualcuno di questi presunti patrioti in realtà ''..fait l'espion et le ruffian des Ministres étrangeres, et qu'il affecte des ideés d'égalité''. CARLO ALBERTO (Torino 1798-Oporto 1849), Principe di Carignano, nel 1821 reggente di Carlo Felice e dal 1831 Re di Sardegna; nel 1848 concesse lo Statuto e l'anno seguente abdicò a favore del figlio Vittorio Eanuele II.

        Osbeckia angustifolia

      London, Paris & Strassburg 1832 - Hand-coloured lithograph by M. Gauci, printed by Engelmann & Co. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling. A finely detailed plate from Wallich's 'Plantae Asiaticae Rariores', a rare scholarly work on the most exotic trees and plants from the tropical zone. A renowned Danish physician, botanist, and plant explorer, Nathaniel Wallich travelled to Nepal, Western Hindostan, Ava and Lower Burma in search of exotic flora and fauna and was responsible for introducing numerous Himalayan plant specimens to Europe. Ardently interested in the indigenous plants of India, where he was appointed Superintendent of the East India Company's Botanical Garden at Calcultta in 1817, he began vigorously collecting and cataloguing specimens and helped found the Oriental Museum of the Asiatic Society (later called the Indian Museum in Calcultta). Wallich published Plantae Asiaticae Rariories between 1829 and 1832, which was undertaken with the enthusiastic patronage of the East India Company. For this work, he drew on both specimens collected during his own trips and those supplied by contacts like Sir Stamford Raffles, and he employed artists including Vishnupersaud (or Vishnu Prasad), who Blunt considered the 'most talented of the native Indian artists'. Maxim Gauci, perhaps the greatest of the early lithographers of botanical subjects, was responsible for translating the drawings onto stone. Cf. Dunthorne 326; cf. Great Flower Books (1990), p.149; cf. Nissen BBI 2099; cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 1383.

        A Dictionary of the English Language, abridged from the American Dictionary

      NY: N. & J. White, 1832. "...for the use of primary schools and the counting house." The 9th edition, Ellsworth/Skeel #596. A sq. 12mo, 5.25" to a side. This is a fair to poor copy, lacking the front cover and title page. The original rear board is present, very worn, and half the spine is still covered, including an unreadable title piece. The first page present is filled with recommendations, from Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story, many Senators et al., and it is chipped and torn with the loss of a few words. The following page, the Preface (p. i), has the lower corner chipped. These lower corners are chipped or bent up to about p. 30 but after the Preface there are no words lost. The dictionary itself is complete and reasonably clean, with minimal occasional foxing and light browning to the edges. Sold as is; very fragile. 536 pp.. Hard Cover.

        PROCLAMATION, BY ANDREW JACKSON, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.

      Washington. Dec. 10, 1832. - Broadside, printed on silk in six columns, within an ornamental border. In a wood frame. Silk slightly frayed at head and foot, occasional foxing, almost entirely in margins. Very good. This proclamation is President Jackson's famous response to the nullification ordinance recently passed by the state of South Carolina. It prints extracts from the Ordinance, followed by Jackson's angry answer in which he denounces nullification as rebellion and treason, warning the citizens of South Carolina the he will use every power to enforce the laws. Sabin, who erroneously gives a date of 1833, notes that "a few copies were printed on satin, with ornamental border," such as the present copy. There was also a Hartford printing on silk, in six columns, and a Boston printing on silk, in seven columns, and at least two New York printings on silk. SABIN 35352. STREETER SALE 1738 (ref).

        Amsterdam - opening Oosterdoksluis, 1832.

      ?Plegtige opening der Groote Sluis van het Ooster-dok voor Amsterdam, waardoor het eerste Korvetschip, gebouwd ter loffelijker nagedachtenis van den te vroeg gesneuvelden jeugdigen held, Jan Carel Josephus van Speyk, is gevoerd, op Zaturdag den 5den Mei 1832??.Aquatint vervaardigd door W.H. Hoogkamer naar een ontwerp van Hendrik Vettewinkel, uitgegeven door G. Portielje. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (afbeelding) 36,7 x 49 cm.Door aanslibbing van het IJ werd de Amsterdamse haven steeds minder goed bereikbaar. Tussen 1817-1824 werd het Groot Noordhollandsch Kanaal aangelegd. Om dat beter te laten functioneren moest er een dam in de mond van het IJ gelegd worden, zeer tegen de zin van Amsterdam. Als lapmiddel om het havenfront open te laten, werd in de afdamming in 1832 het Oosterdok en in 1834 het Westerdok middels sluizen opengesteld.Hier zien we de opening van de sluizen tussen Oosterdok en IJ door het korvet Van Speijk. Op de achtergrond de Buitenkant (Prins Hendrikkade) en Montelbaanstoren.Het Oosterdok omvatte zowel de vroegere Admiraliteitswerf als de uitgebreide VOC-werven. Die laatste lagen er werkeloos bij sinds het opheffing van de VOC. In 1828 was het bedrijfsterrein in gebruik genomen door de "Fabriek van Stoom- en Andere Werktuigen". De Admiraliteitswerf, tot 1795 een Amsterdamse aangelegenheid, werd een werf van de landelijke marine en na 1813 Rijkswerf. Na het opheffen van de werf in 1915 werd het complex als opleidings- en keuringscentrum gebruikt en voor personeelshuisvesting. We kennen het dan als het Marine Etablissement.Korvet Van Speijk, onder bevel van Kapitein ter Zee W.G. Roepel (equipagemeester van 's Rijks Marinewerf), passeerde als eerste schip de grote sluis van het juist voltooide Oosterdok. De doorschutting werd door vijf leden van het Koninklijk Huis en vele genodigden bijgewoond. KTZ Roepel verloor op die dag een epaulet. De Commissie tot de IJ- en Havenwerken besloot hem als beloning een paar epauletten aan te bieden.Zr. Ms. Van Speijk (ex Argo) was een kuilkorvet bewapend met 28 stukken. Het diende in 1834-1837 in Nederlands Oost-Indi?. In 1837 werd het overgedragen aan de Koloniale Marine en deed dienst als wachtschip te Soerabaja.In 1907 werd besloten de hier feestelijk geopende sluizen te verruimen omdat moderne schepen er niet meer doorheen pasten.Prijs: ?975,- (excl. lijst).

        Atlas to Marshall's Life of Washington

Atlas issued with the publication of the second edition of Marshall's Life of Washington (2 volumes). Restored. Original tan paper covered boards with black lettered title and black decorated borders on green paper label pasted down on front board. New brown cloth spine. Front and rear hinges repaired. Paper on boards is rubbed with light damp stains. Light toning to maps. The front paste down is inscribed by A. B. Scott 2 " Lt. 13 " Inf. From the "Newell History" (Alec Newell): Major Albert Blackstone Scott (1858-1906) Major Albert B. Scott was born at the arsenal, in San Antonio, Texas, on October 29, 1858, in the quarters of his grandfather, General R. H. K. Whitely, U. S. Army, who was at that time in command at that post. Major Scott's father was Judge Scott, of New Orleans. He was reared by his grandfather in the State of Pennsylvania and was appointed to the Military Academy at West Point in 1876 by General U. S. Grant and graduated from said Academy in 1880. He was assigned to the Thirteenth U. S. Infantry, then stationed at Fort Wingate, New Mexico, and served with this regiment until his retirement. He spent eight years on the frontier.. From 1888 to 1891 he was Commandant of Cadets at the Maryland Agricultural College, and from 1891 to 1894 was with his regiment in Oklahoma. In 1894 he was detailed as Commandant of Cadets at the Georgia Military College at Milledgeville, Georgia, and served in this position until 1898. when his regiment was ordered to Cuba to take part in the Spanish-American War. In the battle at San Juan Hill, on July 1, 1898, Major Scott, then Captain, was severely wounded, a bullet entering the neck, just in front of the angle of the jaw, in the right side, passed entirely through the neck and came out on the left side of the spine, breaking the tip off of the fifth vertebrae. He was reported killed, and it was several days before his friends and relatives knew to the contrary. He was brought to the United States, and for a year he lay on his bed unable to speak aloud. At the end of a year he rallied somewhat and was able to move about with the aid of a crutch. His right arm was entirely paralyzed and his right leg partially so. He was unable to walk without assistance, a body servant being always within arm's length. In 1900 Major Scott was ordered to Fort McPherson, Georgia, for light duty, and while serving with the greatest difficulty and always suffering severe pain, he took great pride in performing all the duties that came to him. In 1902 Major Scott, at the request of the Military College and the citizens of Milledgeville, Georgia, was detailed for the second time as Commandant of Cadets of the Georgia Military College, and served until he was relieved in 1905 He was promoted to Major and retired July 28, 1905. Major Scott was admitted to the bar at Milledgeville, Georgia, at the July term, 1895, of Baldwin Superior Court. It was his ambition, after retirement, to enter into the active practice of law, and he did open an office in Milledgeville, Georgia. He was terribly handicapped in following any profession, owing to the awful wound received in the Spanish American War, and which rendered him almost helpless, but whenever his physical condition would permit he was a regular attendant upon the Courts of Baldwin County until his death. Major Scott died in Milledgeville, Georgia, January 10th, 1906, from the effects of the wound received at San Juan Hill. He is buried in the cemetery at Milledgeville, Georgia.

        Neuestes Conversations-Lexikon für alle Stände, 8 Bände (A-Z), EA 1832-1838, Tafeln, selten

      Brüggemann'sche Verlags-Expedition / J.F. Leich und Otto Wigand 1832-1838, Leipzig - (Brüggemannsches Conversations-Lexikon) Neuestes Conversations-Lexikon für alle Stände. Von einer Gesellschaft deutscher Gelehrten bearbeitet. 8 Bände (in vier Büchern), komplett - mit Porträts & Lithographien. Sehr selten. Erste & einzige Ausgabe. Schöne & für die Zeit sehr dekorativ eingebundene braune Original-Halbledereinbände mit Goldprägungen. Format ca. 27 x 19 cm. Jeder Band mit Frontispiz (Porträts, Lithographien, als Tafel I-VIII bezeichnet). Verteilt über alle Bände im laufenden Text dazu noch insgesamt 38 ganzseitige, teils ausklappbare Abbildungen. Davon 8 Porträts, 8 Städteansichten, 6 Bauwerke. Die restlichen Tafeln aus dem technisch-naturwissenschaftlichen Bereich. Siehe Bilder 7-19. Wie auch den 20 Originalbildern zu entnehmen, ist die Rückenansicht sehr harmonisch & einheitlich. Rücken zudem überdurchschnittlich erhalten; auch keine der häufig anzutreffenden Fehlstellen, Beschädigungen oder Einrisse. Der Buchschnitt ist noch wunderschön, ebenso die Buchdeckel. Die Kanten & Ecken berieben bzw. bestoßen. Kein unangenehmer Geruch. Keine fehlenden, losen oder eingerissenen Seiten. Abklatsch der Ecken; Seiten & Karten teils stärker fleckig oder gebräunt. Vorsatzpapier am vorderen Innengelenk eingerissen; alles jedoch noch stabil; Buchblock fest (s. auch Bild 20). Die Kollation der Abbildungen auf Vollständigkeit gestaltet sich schwierig, da diese unsystematisch nummeriert sind, hierzu kein Verzeichnis in den Bänden existiert & auch in der einschlägigen Literatur keine Angaben diesbzgl. aufzufinden sind. In den letzten Jahren ist uns vom Brüggemannschen Conversations-Lexikon nur das Exemplar aus der Sammlung Seemann bekannt. Im Vergleich zu diesem sind hier acht Tafeln mehr eingebunden. Diese seltene Erstausgabe dürfte in dieser Vollständigkeit der Tafeln & in dieser Erhaltung heute kaum noch erhältlich sein. 15000 Gramm. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
