Bleistift, bezeichnet und datiert "Salzburg den 21 Sept". Eine Reise Oehmes im September 1833 nach Oberbayern ist belegt (vgl. Ausst. Katalog: Ernst Ferdinand Oehme 1797-1855. Ein Landschaftsmaler der Romantik. Dresden/Lübeck, 1997, S. 170.. Nach einer Ausbildung 1814 am Friedrichstädter Lehrerseminar bildete sich Oehme neben seiner Tätigkeit als Gehilfe des Torschreibers - sein Vater war Generalaccis-Torschreiber - ab 1815 autodidaktisch aus. 1817 betrieb er gemeinsame Studien in der Natur mit C. Wagner (1796-1867). 1819 begann er ein Studium an der Dresdener Kunstakademie und war Schüler von J.Chr.Cl. Dahl (1788-1857), mit dem er eine Studienreise in die Sächsische Schweiz unternahm, und ab 1820 von C.D. Friedrich (1774-1840). Mit einem weiteren Schüler Friedrichs, J.A. Heinrich (1794-1822), unternahm er in diesem Jahr ebenfalls eine Studienfahrt in die Sächsische Schweiz sowie eine gemeinsame Reise nach Salzburg. 1822 ermöglichte ihm ein Stipendium von Prinz Friedrich August von Sachsen einen Studienaufenthalt in Italien - sein lungenkranker Freund Heinrich, mit dem er gemeinsam nach Rom ziehen wollte und den er vorab in Innsbruck traf, verstarb noch vor Ort. In Rom angekommen, bezog er eine gemeinsame Wohnung mit Wagner und knüpfte freundschaftliche Kontakte zu mehreren deutschen Künstlerkollegen, wie C. Götzloff (1799-1866), L. Richter (1803-1884) und C.G. Peschel (1798-1879). 1825 kehrte er nach Dresden zurück. Von hier aus unternahm er mehrere Studienreisen, so etwa 1826 und 1839 mit Richter ins Erzgebirge, 1842 mit Richter und Peschel in den Harz oder 1849 mit den beiden Künstlern über Nordböhmen in die Oberlausitz. 1846 wurde er zum Königlich-Sächsischen Hofmaler ernannt und Ehrenmitglied der Dresdener Akademie. 1854 verschlimmerte sich sein bereits angegriffener Gesundheitszustand, Kehlkopftuberkulose, und er verstarb im April des folgenden Jahres.

      London: James J. Welsh, 1833. First Edition. Short biographical sketch of the popular German musician Charles (or Carl/Karl) Eulenstein (1802-1890), who's performances gained him celebrity in Great Britain in the late 1820s and whose preferred instrument the Jews' harp (Eulenstein also played the guitar) is described on p. [1] as both "eminently beautiful" and, in a quotation in a footnote, more dissonant than "the creaking of hinges [or] the mewing of cats." Etymologically, the Jews' Harp is not, in fact, a Jewish musical tradition, but a corruption of "Jaw's Harp," one of the oldest known musical instruments, dating as far back in China as the 4th century B.C. OCLC locates 11 copies as of April, 2015, only 4 outside the United Kingdom (Iowa, Newberry, Texas, and Western U. (Ontario)). Octavo (19.5cm.); original red cloth, printed cream paper cover label; [4],69,[3](ads)pp.; engraved portrait frontispiece. Expertly rebacked to match, original cloth a bit faded along extremities; frontispiece heavily foxed, recent bookseller label to front pastedown, else Very Good and sound. Errata slip bound in rear. With numerous contemporary holograph corrections throughout, most likely made in preparation of the second edition, as many are of a semantic rather than purely factual nature (for example, on p. 12, lines 2 and 3 from the bottom, the text reads: "...figures of [the] poverty-stricken music-professors [of Heilbronn] haunted their imaginations"). A second edition was published by the London firm of C. & H. Senior in 1840, published under the authorship of a John Sayer, and revised by "a lady intimately acquainted for a long period with the circumstances of Mr. Eulenstein's life by whom a few additional facts have been supplied." Whether the annotations in this copy are in Sayer's, Welsh's, Senior's, or the lady's hand is unclear. Traces of a contemporary inscription on original pastedown now obscured by new pastedown would potentially reveal the original owner.

Grüne Halblederbde d. Z. (etwas berieben) mit Rückentitel, Rückenvergoldung und reicher Blindprägung. Marmorpapiervorsätze.

      Breslau, Max, 1826-1833. - Selten vollständige erste Ausgabe dieser Nachlassveröffentlichung. Enthält überaus reiches Quellenmaterial zu Jean Pauls Leben (1763-1825) und seinen Arbeiten, von Christian Otto und nach dessen Tode von Ernst Förster unter Mithilfe von Karoline und Emma Richter aus dem Nachlass herausgegeben. Im ersten Band ist hier zum ersten Mal das autobiographische Fragment 'Selberlebensbeschreibung' abgedruckt, ferner eine reiche Sammlung von Briefen von und an Jean Paul sowie Materialien aus dem 'Vita-Buch'. Das Porträt wurde von L. Meyer jun. nach Ernst Foerster gestochen. "Jean Paul hing vor allem durch Herder und K. Ph. Moritz eng mit der geistigen Welt der Sturm- und Drangzeit zusammen, aus deren Boden die Blüte der deutschen Selbstbiographie im 18. Jahrhundert entsprossen war. In mancher Beziehung kann er als ein bezeichnender Vertreter dieser Geistesströmung inmitten eines späten Geschlechts gelten . Deutlich wurden diese Zusammenhänge erst, als Jean Paul seit 1818 daranging, seine Jugenderinnerungen und die Geschichte seiner Kindheit aufzuzeichnen. Sie sind im ersten Band des Sammelwerks 'Die Wahrheit aus Jean Pauls Leben' erschienen und schlagen machtvoll die Töne an, die dann in allen den Kindheits- und Jugenderinnerungen der nächsten Zeit innig und klangreich nachhallen" (Klaiber). – Schönes, kaum fleckiges Exemplar. – Goed. V 466, 37 (nur Band 1). Berend 192 (kennt nur 2 Faksimiles). Klaiber S. 188 f. Wagner-Egelhaaf S. 169. Nicht bei Borst.

        The Journal of a Voyage from Calcutta to Van Diemen's Land [with] Illustrations to Prinsep's Journal of a Voyage

      London: Smith & Elder, 1833. Complete set in fine original condition, comprising: Text, duodecimo, folding map, very good in the original cloth with paper label to front, the label rather worn; and Views, two parts quarto, the fine India paper issue of the ten views, the eleventh plate the engraved plan of Hobart, folding plate a little creased at the folds, but generally very good indeed in the original illustrated titling-wrappers. With the suite of views in original wrappers, and including the marvellous panorama of Hobart. One of the scarcer Australian view-books and a famous Tasmanian rarity. This is a most attractive set, with the text in the original green cloth, and the accompanying plates in the finer India paper issue and retaining the original titling wrappers."Mr and Mrs Augustus Prinsep were members of a large English merchant family living in Calcutta. After an extended visit to Van Diemen's Land between 1829 and 1830 Augustus Prinsep died unexpectedly. Mrs Prinsep published a short account of their travels under the title The Journal of a Voyage from Calcutta to Van Diemen's Land in London in 1833 as a memorial of their last trip together. In a note at the end of that slim duodecimo volume she advised that a set of illustrations to the voyage would be published if there was any public interest. Clearly there was, since that same year a set of ten fine lithographs was issued in two parts, quarto, to accompany the text. The illustrations are after her own sketches and others made by Captain Thomas Prinsep, her brother-in-law. Seven of the plates are of Van Diemen's Land and three are of Penang and Angir" (Australian Rare Books).

        Important Collection of Early American Railroad Documents of The Hartford, Providence and Fishkill Railroad Company

      ca. 1833 - 1885.. Very good condition. Fascinating collection of approximately 100 documents pertaining to the development and operation of one of the earliest branch lines on the east coast, connecting Hartford to Providence, (and later Fishkill New York), planned in 1833 by a group of Hartford Connecticut businessmen, and chartered in 1847. This was a key transportation route for the Rhode Island and eastern Connecticut textile industries, established at the dawn of the American age of railroad. Although the line was never built as far east as Fishkill, NY (on the Hudson River), this would have provided an important transportation route for raw materials such as coal to travel from the west to the east, and for finished goods such as textiles and imports to travel from Providence on the east coast to the American west via the Hudson River and the Erie Canal. The westernmost depot completed was Waterbury Ct, and the work of laying the last 50.77 miles of track from there to Willimantic was laid in 1849. Cities served by the line include, from west to east: Waterbury, Bristol, New Britain, Newington, Hartford, Manchester, Vernon, Windham, Bolton, Andover and Willimantic.The archive consists primarily of correspondence, approximately 70 items from a variety of parties, including the paymaster, construction supervisors, attorneys, bankers, and top officials of the railroad. Many of the documents are not on letterhead, however, some of the Boston firms represented here are: Brooks & Ball, James F. C. Hyde, Maverick National Bank, and Thomas E. and F. H. Graves Attorneys. Connecticut firms include: Putnam Aqueduct Company, Samuel F. Jones, and First National Bank of Putnam. Rhode Island includes The Providence Journal. There are approximately half a dozen expense & claim sheets listing amounts under the headings Engineering, Real Estate, Grading & Masonry, Stations, Superstructure, Salaries & Labor, Incidental Expenses, Fencing, Track Repairs, Machine Shop Construction, Bridge Repairs, and Lumber, with each of the headings broken out for Ct. or RI. There are also approx. 20 checks on early Connecticut banks, including Home National Bank of West Meriden (1880s), the West Meriden Brittania Company, W. Bement, Treasurer of the NY & NH RR (1860s), and the Providence State Bank to William H. Hoppin, Treasurer (1850s). The most fascinating correspondence is that of the railroad's attorney in Providence, Samuel Currey (sometimes spelled Curry) and the President, James Bunce, during the period of financial difficulty which ended with the replacement of Bunce by William Sprague, previously governor of Rhode Island, and the absorption of the H P F by the much larger and successful New Haven and Hartford Railroad Company. A letter from Currey to Bunce dated March 27, 1855, demonstrates Currey's concerns for his own finances and for the future of the company: "Considering however that you are soon as rumor has it to leave the Presidency of the Company, and doubting very much what may become of its affairs when its interests pass into other hands, I own that I feel apprehensive of being a much greater loser by the Company than I had until very recently expected." Other correspondence from Currey to Bunce shows the difficulties encountered in constructing the line through what had been predominantly farm land, with many claims made by landowners for fencing, borrow pits and other items: "I am sorry to inform you that several other land owners between the Summit and the state line are more or less in the same situation as to fencing the road with [Mr. Wickes] and even if they forbear to resort to the extreme leniency provided by the Charter, they will claim damages [because] to claim anything of a railroad is to get it". (April 21, 1855).Many documents pertain to the actual day to day running of the business, including land being acquired by the railroad, engineering field notes, disputes & claims made by existing landowners, claims by passengers injured by the railroad, construction documents pertaining to the station houses, bridges and tracks, accounting reports, tallies of tickets sold, and a variety of financial documents. This collection provides a fascinating glimpse into the life of a railroad which played a central role in supplying the transportation needs for eastern Connecticut's and Rhode Island's textile mills during the Industrial Revolution. Parts of the Hartford Providence and Fishkill line still exist today as a rail trail. As Jamie H. Eves writes in 'Transportation, Railroads, and the Mills' (Windham Textile and History Museum, MillMuseum.org): "hikers routinely walk along portions of the old H. P. & F. bed between Bolton and Willimantic, a distance of about 14 miles. ... One imagines the countryside as it must have looked a century ago – an open, undulating land of farms and fields, with only a few trees, and the great sweeping vistas of the Hop River Valley below. The green, pastoral landscape would have offered a compelling contrast to the sooty black trains, the billowing clouds of coal smoke, the piercing whistle of the steam engines, the loud chuffing of gears, and the rhythmic clacking of the steel wheels on the rails".

        Experimental Researches in Electricity, Third Series

      London: Richard Taylor, Red Lion Court, Fleet Street, 1833. First Edition. Wraps. Near Fine. First Edition. [2], 23-54 plus one plate. 4to. 8 1/8 x 10 inches. The offprint issue, but extracted from a bound volume (trimmed, spotted page edges, stitching loose). INSCRIBED by Faraday "To Amedeo Avogadro, x x x, of Turin, from the author" in the upper right hand corner. Trimmed so that only the lower part of Avogadro's name and "auth" of "author" are present. Soft center fold. Plate in rear is foxed. Wraps. "The first and second series of Experimental Researches had been concerned with the relations between electricity and magnetism. In the summer of 1832 Faraday appeared to go off on a tangent, with an investigation into the identity of the electricities produced by the various means then known. His commitment to the unity of force led him to believe that the electricities produced by electrostatic generators, voltaic cells, thermocouples, dynamos, and electric fishes were identical, but belief was no substitute for proof. Furthermore, this identity had been challenged by Sir Humphrey Davy's brother John [ and others ], who insisted that electrical effects were not produced by a single agent but were the complex results of a combination of powers." (DSB Vol 3-4, p 535) "'The progress of the electrical researches which I have had the honour to present to the Royal Society, [ Faraday ] wrote, brought me to a point at which it was essential for the further prosecution of my inquiries that no doubt should remain of the identity or distinction of electricities excited by different means.' The Third Series of Experimental Researches in Electricity was devoted to this end. [ In this Series' experimental approach ], by criticizing the experiments of others [ Faraday ] wanted to remove the seeming obstacles to the admission of the identity of electricities and by utilizing other experiments done by himself and others he wished to establish the identity. For a scientific paper of this period it is heavily footnoted and reveals Faraday's scholarship. ... Whenever there was the slightest doubt as to the accuracy of an experiment, Faraday repeated it. The result was overwhelming and there was no doubt that he had proved his point." (L Pearce Williams, Michael Faraday, p213). L Pearce Williams also details how these experiments sowed the seeds which eventually led Faraday to establish a solid foundation for the science of electrochemistry. As he summarized it: "Faraday could not foresee that in following out these ideas he would not only provide a solid foundation for the science of electrochemistry, but would also throw down a challenge to the physicists of his day. For here, for the first time in his work, was the denial of action at a distance." (p223) This Third Series contains 2 papers - 7. Identity of Electricities derived from different sources., and 8. Relation by Measure of common [ static ] and voltaic Electricity. These articles are an important transitional work by Faraday, establishing that the electricities are the same regardless of source, and setting up future work that would establish the science of electrochemistry. Read Jan 10 and 17th, this is the first appearance of this lecture, in the rare offprint form. It was published in the Phil Trans: 23-54, and also in Phil Mag. 1833. It was reprinted in Faraday's famous three volume "Experimental Researches in Electricity" in 1839-55. Avogadro, to whom Faraday inscribed this offprint, was an Italian chemist who is hailed as a founder of the atomic-molecular theory. Avogadro's law is named after him. Inscribed material by Faraday is uncommon. References: DSB, Jeffreys #207. L Pearce Williams, Michael Faraday. Ekeloff 906a (referring to the collected Experimental Researches in Electricity).

        The Course of Time: a poem

      New York: Charles Wells, 1833 (?). Very good antiquarian condition. 16mo. [2], xiv, [3], 14-227, [4], 230-328, [1], iv-x pp. Contemporary beige calf (by Charles Wells?) elaborately gilt, a.e.g. Front free endpaper excised, binding with some minor refurbishment. Charles Wells was described in New York Directories as a bookbinding until at least 1832; thereafter he was listed as a bookseller; in 1838 he appears in the Directories as a publisher, and then in 1844 his trade is simply described as "books." There is a good possiblility that the present binding came from his shop. Wells may have been the chief importer and user of English-made dies. Not in Edwin Wolf, "From Gothic Windows to Peacocks: American Embossed Leather Bindings, 1825-1855." * Early gift inscription from Ima Hitchcock to Emily Perkins, dated Dec. 25, 1856.
