        My Sketch Book

      1833. first edition. Rare Hand Colored Issue in the Original Nine PartsCRUIKSHANK, George, illlustrator. My Sketch Book. London: Published for the Artist, by Charles Tilt, 1833-34. First edition in the original nine parts. Oblong quarto (7 1/2 x 11 1/16 inches; 190 x 282 mm.). Hand colored etched pictorial title-page (in part 6) and thirty-six magnificent hand-colored etched plates, some full page, many with multiple images. Nine original parts in their original drab printed wrappers. Complete with the scarce two page address by George Cruikshank in part four, complaining of Mr. Kidd the publisher. The second plate in part five is in the second state with the bag forming the coachman's head having the letters GOLD instead of OGDL. A couple of wrappers substituted, a few wrappers lightly soiled, but overall a magnificent copy of the extremely rare 'colored' parts issue. Chemised in a full olive green morocco pull-off case. "The first six numbers with a printed title, which was not issued with the parts, were published on December 1st, 1834 in cloth gilt. It consisted of twenty-four plates and an engraved title in addition to the printed title, which has a design upon it similar to that upon the wrappers of the parts." (Albert M. Cohn. George Cruikshank. A Catalogue Raisonné).Looking at the second plate in part five "The Worship of Wealth" we see George Cruikshank attacking the British public's growing appetite for money, wealth and materialism. Riding in the ornate carriage is a grotesque effigy made from stuffed money-bags ; around it are crowds of people bowing in deference, as they would before Royalty. "Behold 'when Mammon walks or rides or Stirs,Down bend the willing slaves --- the Curs!Hath Mammon half a Million?!! - hath he more?!!!The Salves not only Worship! but adore"Cohn, 181

        Only days after his inauguration as Vice President, Martin Van Buren writes on Congress' response to South Carolina's nullifiers: "Every eye is directed toward S Carolina Her delegation went off in a great rage in consequence of the passage of the enforcement Bill by so unprecedented a majority Her course is not certain but my impression is that she will revoke her ordinance but denounce bitterly the enforcement law to possibly nullify it although such madness is not probable "

      Washington, March 9, 1833. 9.75" x 8". "Autograph Letter Signed, ""M Van Buren"" as Vice President, 4 pages, front and verso of two conjoined sheets, 9.75"" x 8"", Washington, March 9, 1833 to Benjamin F. Butler (1795-1858) concerning Andrew Jackson's health, the inauguration and the ongoing Nullification crisis. Expected folds, light toning to first page, else very good to fine condition. Van Buren writes in large part: ""I am ashamed of myself for not having written to you before but you know how it is with me in this respect and in addition to other obstacles I have for the last two weeks been afflicted with a cold which would have put me to bed but for the exciting scenes through which we have passed. They are all over & well over. Not a single incident has occurred to interfere with the general gratification except the intense ill health of the President on the 4th which caused some inquietude but he went through it well. I passed the principle part of a day in the Senate & witnessed a very general disposition on the part of the rejectors to be civil. Most of them came up to me & shook hands. With Webster that ceremony did not take place until the inauguration ball when it was done under circumstances which John will explain. The health of the President is chiefly restored & affairs here look quite well. Every eye is directed toward S. Carolina. Her delegation went off in a great rage in consequence of the passage of the enforcement Bill by so unprecedented a majority. Her course is not certain but my impression is that she will revoke her ordinance but denounce bitterly the enforcement law to possibly nullify it although such madness is not probable. ln any point of view the crusade has been an unfortunate one to them[?], and in no particular have they perhaps suffered more than on the score of talents, having been too heavily pressed by the peculiarity of their position to allow them to sustain their earnest[?] reputations. I wish Jno Cresswell[?] would hold up a little towards them. Those who would have been most willing to court them if successful will not be foremost to assault them...."" Two days later, contrary to Van Buren's prognostications, the South Carolina Nullification Convention voted to reject Andrew Jackson's Force Bill. This turned out to be merely a symbolic gesture as the same convention accepted the compromise tariff brokered by Henry Clay. Although crisis had been averted, it opened a series of political wounds that would continue to fester for the next two decades. Following Abraham Lincoln's electoral victory in 1860, South Carolina would again occupy the forefront of the ""States' Rights"" movement, voting to secede from the Union ?" provoking yet another political crisis. However, unlike 1833, this crisis erupted into open war as ten other Southern states followed her lead. "

        An Act for incorporating the Members of a Society, commonly called 'The Seaman's Hospital Society',. and their Successors, as therein is mentioned and provided; and for the better enabling and empowering them to carry on their charitable and useful Designs of the same Society INCORPORATION OF THE SEAMAN'S HOSPITAL SOCIETY. EXCEPTIONAL COPY

      [Printed by George Eyre and Andrew Spottiswoode, Printers to the King's most Excellent Majesty 1833] 12pp., sm. folio, with fine woodcut arms of William IV on front page; disbound, an exceptionally crisp, virtually spotless copy ideal for display or presentation. 3 Gulielmi IV. Cap. 9; granted royal assent, 6 May 1833. This is the Act of Parliament formally incorporating the Seaman's Hospital Society, establishing and naming its first governors and prescribing its powers and scope of operations. By way of context its military equivalent, the Royal Hospital at Chelsea, was founded in 1692. The world's first charitable society for the relief of distressed seamen was established in London in March 1821. Initially it aimed to cater for those in the Port of London ('who at that time were very numerous in the Metropolis') and, fittingly for the world's leading maritime nation, did not differentiate on nationality or any other grounds other than disability and hardship. The motivating principles seem to have been partly public gratitude in the aftermath of the Napoleonic wars, in which the Royal Navy in particular had played a fundamental role in achieving victory, and partly increased recognition of the helplessness of private seamen and the strength of their cause. The society was supported entirely by donations, subscriptions and legacies, and by the loan by government of a hospital ship (HMS Dreadnought) moored at Greenwich. In its first twelve years the society provided relief and support to upwards of twenty - three thousand sick and distressed seamen, 'many of whom might otherwise have perished'. With the case clearly made it was time for a more formal and robust body with increased remit and governance; accordingly the Seaman's Hospital Society was given royal assent on 6 May 1833. Its significant extra powers included the rights to possess property, receive bequests, purchase lands and canvass donations; most important of all it was granted 'perpetual succession'. The original HMS Dreadnought continued in use until 1870 when the Admiralty made available at nominal rent the infirmary at Greenwich where the 'Dreadnought' hospital continues to this day. AN ACT OF FUNDAMENTAL IMPORTANCE TO THE WELFARE AND WELL - BEING OF SEAMEN IN BRITAIN, AND A SIGNIFICANT DEVELOPMENT IN BRITISH MARITIME HISTORY. VERY SCARCE, ESPECIALLY IN THIS CONDITION.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("A. B. Fürstenau").

      Hannover, 15. XI. 1833.. 2 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo.. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "Nachdem ich neulich das Vergnügen hatte, Sie zu sehen und zu sprechen, machte ich noch mit einigen Herrn am Tisch in Hildesheim Bekanntschaft, worunter besonders der Herr Dr. Hormeyer mich aufforderte, dort ein Concert zu geben, da indessen ich nach Hannover eilte, mußte ich es ablehnen. Nun trifft es sich, das[s] ich hier erst am Sonnabend den 23. d. M. mein Concert gebe, wo ich nun die übrige Zeit ganz frey bin, und wohl anwenden möchte, in Hildesheim [ein] Concert zu geben, wenn Sie mein verehrter Freund die Gewogenheit u. Gefälligkeit des [A]rrangements dazu übernehmen zu wollen [...]". - Anton Bernhard Fürstenau trat mit sieben Jahren erstmals bei einem Hofkonzert in Oldenburg auf, begleitete seinen Vater auf Kunstreisen nach Kopenhagen und St. Petersburg, wurde 1804 Mitglied der oldenburgischen Hofkapelle und war seit 1815 mit Carl Maria von Weber befreundet. "1817 spielte Fürstenau im Städtischen Orchester in Frankfurt und wurde von Johannes Vollweiler in Komposition unterwiesen. 1818 ging er wieder auf Reisen, war in Holland und Süddeutschland tätig und wurde 1820 erster Flötist in der Hofkapelle in Dresden. 1826 begleitete er Weber auf dessen letzter Reise nach Paris und London. F. unterrichtete zahlreiche Schüler und war in seiner Zeit ein großer Flötenvirtuose. Er schrieb 147 Flötenkompositionen, darunter zwölf Konzerte" (DBE).

        Coloured Views on the Liverpool and Manchester Railway,

      1833. The Most Complete Issue With Sixteen Hand-Colored Aquatint Plates[BURY, T. T., Illustrator]. Coloured Views on the Liverpool and Manchester Railway, With Plates of the Coaches, Machines, &c. from drawings made on the spot by Mr. T. T. Bury. With descriptive particulars, serving as a guide to travellers on the railway. London: Ackermann & Co., 1833. Third edition, with the additional three folding plates and the title to the first edition bound in. Large quarto (13 1/4 x 10 7/8 inches; 336 x 268 mm.). [iv], 8 pp. Sixteen hand-colored aquatint plates (13 by S.G. Hughes or H.Pyall after T.T. Bury, three folding by S.G. Hughes [2 after I. Shaw, one unsigned]), extra-illustrated with a cancel title from 1831 issue. Text watermarked 1829-1832; plates 1831-1833. Folding plates with folds reinforced on verso with linen (as issued), second folding plate with small tear (just touching image) invisibly repaired.Contemporary green paper-covered boards ruled in gilt, the upper cover with a contemporary red straight-grained morocco label, lettered and tooled in gilt. Expertly re-backed and re-cornered in quarter red straight-grain morocco ruled in gilt. Smooth spine decoratively stamped in gilt, original gray/brown paper printed wrappers to the 1831 first edition bound in. A spectacular copy of the most complete edition of this fine work. Housed in a green cloth clamshell case with red leather lettering label on spine.An eye-witness account of travel on the world's second practical railway line, with plates after Bury "an outstanding architectural designer" (Abbey) and a detailed report of the difficulties overcome during the railways construction.?"A later edition with the plates re-engraved [many of them with significant changes] was issued in 1833… Copies occur with 2 extra folding coloured aquatint plates by I. Shaw, engraved by S.G. Hughes viz. "A Train of First and Second Class Carriages with the Mail" and "Trains of Waggons with Goods, Cattle &c… This [edition] may have a further additional [folding] plate "Bridge on the line of St. Helen's and Runcorn Gap Railway." (Tooley). ?"This book was first published with six plates in 1831. It proved popular, and other editions followed…This classic record of the beginnings of the railway age was also one of the last significant books illustrated with aquatints. Lithography was already sweeping the field for pictorial records of this kind?" (Ray, The Illustrator and the Book in England).Thomas Bury, 'a pupil of Augustus Pugin, was an outstanding architectural designer, and engaged with Pugin, in designing the details of the Houses of Parliament. He was the artist responsible for the best-known views of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway. He Published as hand-colored aquatints in paper covers by Ackermann in February 1831 [titled Six Coloured Views of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway, with a plate of the coaches, machines, &c], Bury's work went through many editions covering a period of about three years. There were seven views in the first edition and thirteen in the second. A reissue appeared in 1832 followed by Spanish and French editions, while the prints were reproduced separately in France and Germany. After re-engraving, new editions appeared in England in 1833 and 1834. Ackermann clearly realized the potential of the British and European markets for railway prints as no other work passed through so many editions' (Rees). The present copy includes the first state of one of the two folding plates of carriages and engines: before canopies were added to the lower set of carriages. The view of the interior of the Wapping to Edge Hill tunnel is in a later state (possibly the fifth) dated 1833 and after the removal of the steaming train (the train was a mistake as no train under steam was allowed in the tunnel).The inspiration for the project to build the railway was the success of the Stockton to Darlington rail line and the urgent commercial need for faster links between the docks of Liverpool and the factories of Manchester ("goods have been known to make the transit from New York to Liverpool in less time than from the latter town to Manchester.") The route was proposed in 1824 and, under the direction of George Stephenson and with parliament's blessing, the immense work was completed by 1830: the line being opened to the public on the 15th September of that year. Despite the tragic death of the Liverpool member of parliament Mr. Huskisson (the first fatality attributable to the Railways) and the huge cost of the work (£740,000 by 1830), the railway was an immediate popular and financial success. Speeds in excess of 30 m.p.h. were recorded for the 31 mile journey and as the author predicted in the final paragraph "The success of this experiment... has been... so complete, as to justify the anticipation of the speedy introduction of railways throughout the country..." The plates include three plates of the train and rolling stock employed on the railway, and 13 others of views of the railway in operation.Abbey Life 400; Gareth Rees Early Railway Prints (1980) p.21 and see plates 5-9 & 13; Tooley 121.

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.

      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.

        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".
