        Finden's Illustrations of the Life and Works of Lord Byron.

      London: John Murray,, 1833. With Original and Selected Information on the Subjects of the Engravings. 3 volumes, octavo. Contemporary burgundy half morocco, spine gilt-tooled in compartments with titles direct, gilt rules to sides, marbled endpapers and edges. With engraved half titles and title pages, and engraved plates throughout, 129 in all. Illustrated bookplate of Robert J Hayhurst to front pastedown of volume one. Some light spotting to a few early and late plates, but on the whole remarkably fresh, rubbing to the corners, a sound smart set in excellent condition. First book edition, attractively bound. "It was William and Edward Finden's illustrations to Byron that substantially enhanced the status of their work. Following his death in Greece in 1824, their engravings sensitively conveyed to a wide contemporary audience images of Byron's life and work. Initially engaged by Byron's publisher, John Murray, to engrave a portrait of Byron at the age of nineteen by the Scottish painter George Sanders, in J. C. Hobhouse's possession, as the frontispiece to the first edition of Thomas Moore's Life of Byron (1830), William Finden went on to work for Murray on a popular edition of Moore's Life and Works of Byron which was first published in monthly parts. At the same time he conceived his own project to publish with Murray a series of landscape illustrations to Byron. Initially he gained the support of Byron's loyal friend J. C. Hobhouse, who agreed to write a text to accompany the illustrations and provided Finden with a list of subjects for illustration. Finden lost no time in commissioning drawings from Turner and other artists, but then ran into difficulties with Hobhouse, whose protective feelings towards his friend's reputation prevented him from ever publishing his recollections of Byron. Having made a heavy financial commitment towards this, his first publishing venture, and having also secured investment from Murray, Finden pressed on and began negotiations with the publisher Charles Tilt. Finden's Landscape Illustrations to the Life and Works of Byron finally appeared in fourteen monthly parts, with both Murray's and Tilt's names on the paper wrappers, from January 1832... Both the Illustrations and Moore's Life and Works created a great sensation, and led to further projects to engrave the life and works of other poets, and other works of a popular kind such as Finden's Gallery of the Graces (1832?4) after works by Sir Edwin Landseer and A. E. Chalon; Finden's Byron Beauties (1834); Finden's Portraits of the Female Aristocracy of the Court of Queen Victoria (1838?9), after portraits by Chalon, Hayter, and others; and Finden's Tableaux of National Character, Beauty, and Costume, edited by Mrs A. [Priscilla Maden] Watts." (ODNB.)

        Die deutschen Schriftstellerinnen des neunzehnten Jahrhunderts. Erster (- Dritter) Theil. In drei Bänden.

      Brockhaus, Leipzig 1833 - 1833 – 1835 [recte 1823 – 1825 ?; s.u.]. I: XXXII, 384 S.; II: XVI, 504 S.; III: XXVII, 260 S. Marmorierte Halblederbände d.Zt. mit zwei farb. Rückenschilden und –vergoldung. Etwas berieben, etwas bestoßen. Titelauflage der ersten Ausgabe ? – Teils etwas stockfleckig. Ein bemerkenswertes Exemplar des „besten zeitgenössischen Lexikons mit Biographien und Werkverzeichnis von ca. 500 etwa 1790 bis 1825 literarisch tätigen Frauen“ (B.Becker-Cantarino. Schriftstellerinnen der Romantik, München 2000, S.292). C.W.O.A.v. SCHINDEL (Tzschochau/ Lauban 1776 – 1830 Schönbrunn bei Görlitz), vermögender Gutsherr auf Schloss Schönbrunn, wo der Bibliophile eine erlesene Büchersammlung zusammentrug, und Mäzen, wurde wohl durch seine Heirat mit der Tochter der Schriftstellerin WILHELMINE VON GERSDORF zu diesem noch heute unverzichtbaren und oft zitierten Werk angeregt, das allerdings fast ausschließlich in dem Neudruck von 1978 bzw. in dessen zweiter Auflage von 2000 nachweisbar ist. Verwirrend bei vorliegendem Exemplar ist das Erscheinungsdatum 1833 bis 1835 im Impressum aller Bände. Eine so datierte Ausgabe ist gänzlich unbekannt; weder der Brockhaus-Verlagskatalog noch Kaysers Bücherlexikon verzeichnen eine solche, auch in Bibliothekskatalogen ist kein weiteres Exemplar nachweisbar. Die erste und allein bekannte zeitgenöss. Ausgabe erschien 1823 bis 1825, nur sie wird auch in zeitgenöss. Rezensionen und Bibliographien erwähnt. Zwar ist nicht auszuschließen, dass es sich um eine bislang unbekannte Titelauflage handelt, bei der lediglich die Titelblätter neu gesetzt sind, aber naheliegend wäre dann doch wohl, dass alle Bände im gleichen Jahr erschienen wären. Und selbst wenn es sich um einen Fehler des Setzers handelte, so bliebe doch ganz unverständlich, dass bei diesem Exemplar im Abstand von drei Jahren alle drei Bände davon betroffen sein sollten. Zweifellos aber handelt es sich, abgesehen von der beschriebenen Abweichung, um ein ausgesprochen wohlerhaltenes Exemplar der Orig.-Ausgabe, die sehr selten ist und im Handel kaum jemals nachweisbar (seit Jahrzehnten nicht im JAP).

        Romances Chansons, offertes à Son Altesse Royale Monsieur le Duc d'Orléans Prince Royal, écrites par Charles Postelle à Paris.

      In-8 ; plein veau glacé aubergine, plats décorés à la plaque gravée d'une grande composition romantique entourée de décors dorés de rocaille et filets dorés, dos à quatre nerfs plats décoré de roulettes et fleurons dorés, triple filet doré d'intérieur, étui bordé (reliure de l'époque, circa 1833) ; (86) ff., les 5 derniers blancs, comportant le titre, 60 romances ou chansons, (2) ff. de table et (18) ff. de musique notée, le tout délicatement calligraphié recto seul, avec des titres à grandes lettres fantaisie décorées, texte souvent décoré d'ornements ou encadrements romantiques. Cet ouvrage à probablement été offert au roi Louis-Philippe duc d'Orléans en 1832, la première chanson s'appelle "Les Fleurs. Stances et Bouquet offerts à la Reine le jour de sa Fête. Par les Grenadiers du 3e Bon de la 6e Légion de la Garde nationale de Paris. 1832". Coiffes très discrètement restaurées, exemplaire très frais. Un grand nombre de ces chansons sont de Louis Festeau, chansonnier, poète, compositeur (1793-1869). En 1831, il fait partie de la Lice Chansonnière. Une bonne partie des chansons présentes, seront éditées en 1834 dans le premier recueil de chansons qu'il a publié, "Les Ephémères", au point que l'on peut se demander si Charles Postelle ne serait pas simplement un pseudonyme utilisé pour offrir ses chansons au Roi.

        Autograph letter signed ("LLaborde"). N. p., 27. III. 1833.

      1833. 8vo. 1 p. With autogr. address and red wax seal on reverse of second leaf of bifolium. To Monsieur Raynouard. Perhaps relating to de Laborde's abortive "Essais de gravure", a specimen of which appeared in 1833. "Madame" will pass on to Raynouard "le manuscrit du premier volume d'un ouvrage auquel je travaille depuis longtemps". It is "un travail qui en est si peu digne et qui en a tant besoin". He has "assez conservé le souvenir" of Raynouard's "ancienne bonté pour espérer que vous voudrez bien y consacrer quelques heures". Raynouard will recall his "inhabileté de redaction". Explains why he has resisted the urge to renounce any idea of publication, and repeats his request for Raynouard's assistance. - Good, on aged and lightly creased paper.

        Eigenh. Manuskript "Kaiser Heinrich im Spessartwald" mit U. O. O. u. D.

      1833. 3 ½ SS. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt. 8vo. 8 strophiges Gedicht "für den Musenalmanach von Schwab und Chamisso": "Als Kaiser Heinrich im Spessartwald / Flüchtig einst irrte in fremder Gestalt, / Da kehrte bei Nacht u. bei Nebelschein / in eine Waldhütt' er zagend ein, / Fand dort beisammen beim Lichtes Schimmer / Ein Mütterlein u. einen Greis im Zimmer / ‚Eilt, bittet er, mir einen Führer zu geben. / Uebers Gebirge, es gilt mein Leben' [...]". - Der "Deutsche Musenalmanach" wurde 1833 von Adelbert von Chamisso und Gustav Schwab übernommen und erschien bis 1841. - Der aus einem alten baltischen Adelsgeschlecht stammende Ungern-Sternberg wuchs in einer von der Herrnhuter Brüdergemeine geprägten Umgebung auf, studierte seit 1826 Kameralwissenschaften in Dorpat und erhielt 1830 in St. Petersburg von der Zarin Alexandra ein Stipendium zur Ausbildung als Maler. Vor der Cholera zunächst nach Dresden geflohen, hielt er sich 1831-34 am Hof der Großherzogin Stephanie von Baden in Mannheim auf und wandte sich nach dem Erfolg seiner ersten Novelle "Die Zerissenen" (1832) der Schriftstellerei zu. 1834-41 lebte Ungern-Sternberg in Weimar, ging dann nach Berlin, wo er u.a. im Kreis um Karl August Varnhagen von Ense verkehrte, und arbeitete zeitweise auch als Korrespondent der "Kreuzzeitung". Im Auftrag des russischen Gesandten war Ungern-Sternberg Berichterstatter bei der Frankfurter Nationalversammlung und beim Erfurter Parlament, lebte seit 1850 in Dresden und starb auf dem Gut seines Schwagers.

      Large 8vo, xii,501pp., one of 100 copies, steel-engraved frontispiece showing Eshton Hall and 3 steel-engraved plates of the library and its surroundings, cont. half morocco by J. Mackenzie (bookbinder to the King), upper hinge broken but still holding, spine gilt, marbled paper sides, corners a little bumped, uncut.Frances Mary Richardson Currer (1785-1861) was England's earliest female bibliophile and was described by Dibdin as the "head of all female book collectors in Europe.". Currer inherited the library of her great grandfather, Richard Richardson (1663-1741), botanist and antiquary, and with the additions made to this Currer built up a sizeable collection of 15,000 volumes. The catalogue is arranged in a number of classes, including religion, arts, natural science, topography, literature and history. Most of the books in her library were auctioned at Sotheby's in 1862, realising £6,000.

      Paris, Pourrat Frères, [?1833-1834]. In three volumes. 8vo. Two title pages, two frontispiece portraits, 327 plates on 325 sheets. Uniform early 19th century embossed calf. Spines rich gilt with floral vignettes, and titles. Gilt monogram on front boards. Marbled endpapers.l These sets of fine, hand-coloured plates form part of Lesson's edition of the "Buffon". "Buffon" is in this case regarded as a noun, meaning: book on zoology (in the first half of the 19th century the great majority of French natural history works were modelled after, or based on the works of Buffon, and it was almost obligatory to mention his name in the book title). René Primevère Lesson (1794-1849), who had already published some of the finest illustrated books on birds, starts this edition by closely following Buffon's 18th century original. It is characterized by a superior rendering of the plates, with Prêtre, Traviés, and Oudart (arguably among the best natural history illustrators of the 19th century) as principal artists. Following the classic Buffon plates are many new plates. These are from the "Complément ou histoire naturelle des animaux rares découvertes par les naturalistes et les voyageurs depuis la mort de Buffon", including quite a number of Australian mammals and birds, as well as the New Zealand kiwi. Nissen (697), with a query, lists 200 plates, and lists the slightly later edition published by Pourrat and Roret as having 206 plates, viz. 58 mammals and 148 birds. This copy, however, has 128 mammal plates on 126 sheets, and 199 bird plates, far more than in either the "Oeuvres complètes", or the "Complément", which, according to Nissen (2462), should have 122 plates (1828-1830 ed.), or 181 plates (1838-1841 ed.). Given the contemporary bindings and the similar style, this is an unrecorded edition, rather than a mixed edition. Not counted in our total are portraits of Buffon and Lesson, three folded maps of the (then known) world, and plain plates of a furnace, a telescope, a burning glass, and a map of the Auvergne, as well as three plain plates of sperm, and two hand-coloured plates of humans, which were all in imitation of the original Buffon edition. Plate numbering is erratic, and often absent. For instance, in the Mammalia section there are 27 numbers used twice, and seven numbers used three times, 16 plates without a number, and six bis plates. In the mammals, 43 plates have no number, while 27 numbers remained unused. Initials of J.V. on tails of spines and the same initials embossed in gilt on front panels. We strongly believe this to be the naturalist Jules Verraux, who worked as "naturaliste voyageur" for the Museum d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris. He travelled to South Africa and Asia to collect specimens. He is considered one of the greatest ornithologists of his time, and many birds, including an eagle, have been named after him by zoologists such as Lesson, Bonaparte, and Grandidier. Three plates in duplicate (second copies not counted). A few plates toned or spotted, the Auvergne-map torn with about 25% missing, the title pages of oiseaux and mammifères interchanged, otherwise a very good set, of what possibly is a very rare edition. Compare Nissen ZBI, 697; 2462.

        Zoological Illustrations, or Original Figures and Descriptions of new, rare, or interesting animals, selected chiefly from the classes of Ornithology, Entomology, and Conchology, and arranged on the principles of Cuvier and other modern Zoologists

      Baldwin, Cradock, and Joy, London 1833 - Six volumes, octavo, 318 handcoloured plates, an excellent set in uniform contemporary green half morocco over marbled boards, all edges gilt. A particularly attractive set of both the first and second series of this beautiful work of natural history; all published, and rare in such fine original condition. The importance of this work to Australian and Pacific natural history cannot be overestimated: several plates feature Australian specimens - particularly birds - figured for the first time, while many of the illustrations are derived from the collections of important figures such as Sir Joseph Banks, Elizabeth Bligh, Allan Cunningham and John Byron. Peculiarly attractive is a plate in the second series, depicting the Jamaican "Two-Toothed Disk Snail", from an original sketch by John Lewin, a friend of the Swainson family.Swainson's friend William Elford Leach, head of zoology at the British Museum, first encouraged him to experiment with lithography so as to make drawings of animals suitable for colouring. Thus began the publication of this, his first major work, in which all of the plates are by the author; Swainson was the first illustrator and naturalist to use lithography in this way, achieving a fresh and admirable style.The work deals with specimens from all around the globe, with many from Java, the East Indies, and the Americas (particularly Brazil, visited by Swainson in 1816). Of great interest are the many plates illustrating specimens from the South Seas. Swainson was particularly good on shells, although he relied on the sometimes poor recording of earlier collectors, and was sometimes not able to be more specific than simply giving their habitat as "South Seas". There are, nonetheless, three illustrations of Australian shells, the "New Holland Mitre", the "Mitra melaniana", and the "Scaphella maculata", the last from the collection of Elizabeth Bligh. Several other South Seas shells are from the collection of Sir Joseph Banks, including the "Mitra vitatta", about which Swainson comments that "this superb shell is figured from a matchless specimen brought home by that illustrious and lamented patron of science, the late Sir J. Banks, from the Pacific Ocean".The work is rich with images of Australian birds, with lovely depictions of the "Azure Kingsfisher", "Red-shouldered Parakeet", "Turcosine Parrakeet", "Blue-fronted Parrakeet", and the "Tabuan, or King Parrakeet" (drawn by Swainson from a live specimen). He includes an image of the "White-collared Honeysucker", with the interesting note that "Lewin's figure is so excellent, that I should not again have represented this bird, had not the plate been prepared previous to the publication of his work". Perhaps the most personal note accompanies his depiction of "Swainson's, or Blue-bellied Lory" (Trichoglossus Swainsoni), where he comments on his "pleasure at seeing our name affixed to this charming bird, and in clearing up its history. As a child we well remember our unwearied delight at seeing its figure in White's Voyage".Several Australian birds are depicted for the first time. This interesting group, which we list here with Swainson's original scientific designations, includes the "Yellow-tufted Honeysucker" (Melliphaga auricomis); "Red-Collared Parakeet" (Psittacus Barabandii), from a skin in the possession of Mr Leadbeater; the "Keel-billed Flycatcher" (Muscipeta carinata), "from a specimen belonging to Mr. Brookes; since which, I have received two others from New Holland"; and the so-called "New Holland variety" of the "White-eyed Warbler" (Sylvia annulosa), described by George Caley. Further, of great significance are the two birds noticed from specimens collected by Allan Cunningham, the famous natural historian and His Majesty's Botanist in New South Wales, who sent the specimens to Swainson: the "Black & White Robin" (Petroica bicolor) and the "Golden-eared Parrakeet" (Leptolophus auricomis). The latter had only recently been pictured in Edward Lear's [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Purchase & shipment of a Phaeton carriage from London, which subsequently initiated the first road works in the Bahamas to accommodate it.

      New Providence Island [Nassau], August 1833 - May 1834. Four (4) manuscript signed letters from Mr. (and Mrs.) Sandilands, British Chief Justice, plantation owner, philanthropist and abolitionist, who essentially founded the Fox Hill region, addressed to Mr. Bosanquet, their banker in London, and dealing with the purchase of a mansion and a phaeton carriage which is of historical significance. Together with one (1) small manuscript note to Mr. Sandilands trustees regarding freight and insurance for the carriage shipped to the island in November 1833. 8vo. Double leafs measuring approximately 18 x 22 cm, with integral addresses, red wax seals, and 'Bahamas' mailing stamps. Mr. Sandilands and his wife Mary had arrived in the Bahamas in 1830, only 3 years before these letters were written. Robert Sandilands is best remembered for taking a leading role at the time of abolition by offering, in 1840, small parcels of his 1200 acres of land in the Fox Hill district to freed slaves, for £10 or the equivalent in labour, encouraging them to "work hard, be loyal, and grateful for their boon." His scheme formed a free-slave village settlement, originally called Creek Village. Within it he created a small "village square" centered around an ancient cotton silk tree. In 1849 the recipients of the lots renamed the town Sandilands Village after their benefactor. His first land purchase, 60 acres, part of his estate later to be subdivided into 100 lots, is described in two of the present letters, an investment and vision he began investing into in 1833. [In August 1833, the Abolition of Slavery Act became law. In his final will and testament, Sandilands stated his wish that all of his slaves be freed. In gratitude, most or all took his name as their surname; as former slaves, none of them had surnames.] Of utmost importance in these letters is the purchase of a phaeton carriage with a top for protection from the blazing sun. Eventually, after some hardship and a long wait, a carriage would be shipped to Providence Island from London. And, with a £100 colony grant Mr. Sandilands built a four mile carriage road through his private property, and through Creek Village to the main Eastern road, creating better communication between Nassau and the southern fishing grounds, and also facilitating transport between the Village and the Nassau Market. It is now called Fox Hill Road. The carriage so tenaciously pursued and finally acquired, as described in these letters, was the cornerstone for early roadworks and proper transport in the Fox Hill district. Over and above the purchase of property and a carriage, these letters reveal the couple's financial struggles upon settling in the Bahamas, the length of time it took to deal with colonial matters from overseas, and their determination for success, Fort Montagu, which was built in 1741 and had played an important role in the American War of Independence, is also mentioned. Excerpts from the letters: 5 August 1833. Written by Robert Sandilands: "... I feel assured of your willingness on this account to undertake my commission. I desire above all things to have immediately sent out for Mary a small four wheeled Pony Phaeton with a top - if such a thing can be procurred... will not much exceed the sum of £40... [Mrs. Mary Sandiland adds to the letter as well]" Nassau, New Providence, 15 September 1833. Written by Robert Sandilands: "... I have likely made a purchase of an old mansion... 60 acres of ground about 2 miles from the town of Nassau. I am to pay 1000 dollars for it.... I shall have [this?] to Messrs. Coutt by next [month?]..." 31 March 1834. Written by Robert Sandilands: "There is only time to write you a very few lines by a merchant vessel on the point of sailing for England.... it has come to our knowledge that the vessel by which our Phaeton was shipped (the Jersey) has been lost on the coast of England... Quite the contrary an account of the Phaeton being without a head, a want which under our sultry sun nearly rendered it useless. I am most anxious to have our out as soon as possible..." Postmarked 6 May 1834. Written by Mary Sandilands "I am much concerned at having done anything irregular in the way of drawing money, but Mr. Sandilands told me that the Bill had nothing to do with my account... You have of course by this time received the £50 for him, 20 I trust that I have not overdrawn. I have signed two bills for £30 each, which with the £10 for the carriage... makes 70... Money concerns are the very diable & I really have not one hours enjoyment of life in consequence... the constant demand for ready money and the irregularity of the colonial payments, make some arrears that are due extremely annoying... We are living within our income... ...the purchase Mr. Sandilands has made is decidedly an advantage therefore do not turn a deaf ear... the Montagu House should be sold & part of the money & part of the money be appropriated towards paying for it. There cannot be a worse investment for that money than the present one, the house is I believe unlet and of course getting wore out of repair.... ... the calculation of our years expenses which are £100 within our income, the patience of people out here would be exhausted before a sufficient sum was accumulated to pay them all out of such limited savings... I should have £15 more a year to spend! ... One word about the little carriage - It is now certain that the Jersey is lost. I hope it will not make a very big difference in price. There are at the... all sorts of carriages..." End Excerpts. The recipient of these letters is James Whatman Bosanquet (1804-1877), an English banker, who at the age of 18 entered his father's bank, Bosanquet, Salt, & Co., and who in due course became a partner. Mr. Robert Sandilands and his wife Mary had arrived in the Bahamas in 1830. In the same year, he was appointed to the Executive Council. By the Votes of The Bahamas Assembly 1840, Mr. Sandilands became a judge in the General Court. In 1841, he was appointed Assistant Justice. After emancipation, Judge Sandilands granted portions of his land in Fox Hill to the former slaves in the area so they might use it for farming. The payments for these grants were either made by labour or the profits earned from the sale of vegetables. Mr. Sandilands considered the Africans residing in the village to be a "fine body of industrious and content people... upon whose labour one can always depend... for the wage of one shilling per day". The Africans called the settlement `Sandilands Village' however the name was not officially instituted until 1849. With a £100 colony grant Mr. Sandilands built a four mile carriage road through his private property, leading through Creek Settlement to the main Eastern road, in order to open proper communication between Nassau and the fishing grounds on the south side of the island, and also to facilitate transport between Sandilands Village and the Nassau Market. By 1888 Sandilands Village had six hundred inhabitants and was prospering. In 1845 Sandilands gave a further portion of his land for the establishment of a school for the children of freed slaves. Sandilands Primary school remains today. A Phaeton (also Phaéton) is a form of sporty open carriage popular in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century. Drawn by one or two horses, a phaeton typically featured a minimal body very lightly sprung atop four extravagantly large wheels.

        Turkey and its resources: its municipal organization and free trade; the state and prospects of English commerce in the East, the new administration of Greece, its revenue and national possessions. London, Saunders and Otley, 1833.

      1833. 8vo. First edition. XV, (1), 328 pp. With lithographic map bound as frontispiece. First edition; flyleaf inscribed by the author to "Mr [...] Regnaudiu". Important overview of Turkish trade, resources, infrastructure and municipal organisation by the diplomat David Urquhart (1805-77). After two and a half years fighting in the Greek war of independence, Urquhart was invited to accompany Sir Stratford Canning to Constantinople in November 1831 as an advisor during negotiations to settle the Greek boundary. In 1832 Urquhart was sent to Albania to cultivate the support of Rechid Pasha, leading advisor to the Turkish sultan. Urquhart became a great supporter of Turkey, spending most of 1834 in the country, and encouraged the British government to ally itself with Turkey against Egypt. This substantial book was written to inform the British political class of the possible commercial benefits of an Anglo-Turkish alliance. - Some negligible toning to first few leaves.

        7 eigenh. Briefe mit U. Berlin, 1833 bis 1854.

      1833. Zusammen 6 SS. auf 13 Bll. Gr.-8vo. Freundschaftliche Korrespondenz mit Rebecka Dirichlet (1811-58), der Enkelin Moses Mendelssohns, Tochter von Abraham und Lea Mendelssohn (Bartholdy) und jüngeren Schwester von Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy und Fanny Hensel. I: "Ich nehme Sie beim Worte, gnädige Frau! Wollen Sie es gütigst versuchen, ob die beifolgenden Blätter der Jahrbücher an Mstrs Sarah Austin billig zu befördern sind? [...] Sie sehen vielleicht einen Augenblick die beiden Bände der Mstrs Sarah an, die ich noch zu Hause habe. Im Thl. 2 S. 320 ist die schöne mündliche Mittheilung von Felix beigebracht. Für Frau Professorin Hensel lege ich andre gedruckte Bogen bei, worin meine Anzeige von Preuß Lebensgeschichte Friedrichs des Großen steht. Im Ganzen hoffe ich auf Beistimmung [...]" (9. IX. 1833). Die englische Schriftstellerin Sarah Austin (1793-1867) hat Pücklers "Briefe eines Verstorbenen" übersetzt (ersch. London 1832) und stand seit 1833 mit Varnhagen in Briefkontakt. Von ihrer dreibändigen Anthologie "Characteristics of Goethe" hatte Varnhagen vermutlich den ersten Band ausgeliehen. Seine Besprechung von Joh. D. E. Preuß' "Lebensgeschichte Friedrich des Großen" erschien in den "Jahrbüchern für wissenschaftliche Kritik" und als Wiederabdruck in seinem 1833 erschienenen Werk "Zur Geschichtsschreibung und Literatur". - II: "Ich freue mich, gnädige Frau, daß Ihr Absagebrief doch zugleich wieder ein Zusagebrief ist! Der Freitag ist mir sehr recht. Ich werde mich einfinden, und Ihrer Befehle gewärtig sein [...] Die Tutti frutti [von Pückler-Muskau] sind unvergessen: ich schäme mich der Verspätung, die ich doch nicht Macht habe ohne dringende Gewalt zu lösen! [...]" (11. III. 1834). - III: "Empfangen Sie den innigsten Dank für das willkommene Geschenk [wohl ein Autograph], für Ihr gütiges Gedächtniß! - Wenn es darauf ankommt, den Karakter aus der Handschrift zu erkennen, so giebt es nicht leicht eine die mehr Stoff anbietet, als die der unglücklichen Herzogin! [d. i. die von ihrem Ehemann ermordete Fanny de Choiseul-Praslin, 1780-1847] Ich bin zwar kein allzu sichrer Leser, allein eine gewisse vornehme Lässigkeit und Verwirrung glaub' ich doch herauszudeuten [...] Bei der Juli-Revolution [von 1830] waren wir täglich bei Ihnen, und tauschten Neuigkeiten und Betrachtungen. Ich fühlte das stärkste Verlangen, diese schöne Erinnerung jetzt, bei der Februar-Revolution [in Frankreich], zu erneuern! Es will mir nicht gelingen, seit vier Wochen leid' ich an Rheuma [...]" (11. III. 1848). - IV: Bezieht sich auf die gewaltsame Befreiung Gottfried Kinkels aus dem Spandauer Gefängnis am 6. November 1850 und dessen Flucht nach England, an der Rebecka Dirichlet und Varnhagen ideell beteiligt waren: "Hier überreiche ich Ihnen, Hochverehrteste, den verabredeten Brief - - wie thut es mir wohl, wieder mit deutschen Lettern zu schreiben! - - der hoffentlich seinen Zweck nicht verfehlen wird [...] Sie thäten doch vielleicht gut, der Frau Professorin [Johanna] Kinkel vertraulich zu sagen, daß Mrs. Grote [d. i. Harriet Grote, die Gattin des Historikers George Grote] eine Frau besonderer Art und nicht immer leicht zu behandeln ist. An Hrn. Chorley sollten Sie doch wohl einige Zeilen wenden, ich denke mir ihn wie unsre [Ludwig] Rellstab, [Theodor] Rötscher, [Friedrich Wilhelm] Gubitz, und daher für ein freundliches Wort sehr empfänglich. Die Adresse von Hrn. Richard Monckton Milnes, Dichter und Parlamentsmitglied, ist 26 Pall Mall, London, es wird nicht schwer sein, jemanden zu finden, der dort einführen kann [...]" (22. II. 1851). Das Haus von Milnes war ein Treffpunkt deutscher Schriftsteller und Emigranten in London. - V: "Hiebei erfolgt das gewünschte Blatt für Ihren Herrn Neffen, das er zur guten Stunde dem Dichter [d. i. Ludwig Uhland] abgeben möge, der unter äußerer Kälte die frischeste Wärme hegt, wie seine Poesien es herrlichst darthun. - Weniger als Dichter, aber desto mehr als wunderlicher Kauz wäre vielleicht auch Justinus Kerner in Weinsberg Ihrem Neffen merkwürdig; auch er ist mein Jugendfreund, aber ich schreib' ihm nicht mehr, seitdem er in den letzten Jahren sich der rohen Unterdrückung schmeichelnd zu Füßen gelegt hat. Wenn aber Herr Hensel ihn sehen möchte, kann er nur geradezu in eignem Namen zu ihm gehen, er wird auf's beste von ihm aufgenommen werden. Trifft er den Sohn, Dr. Theobald Kerner, in Weinsberg, so möge er diesen herzlich von mir grüßen [...]" (4. X. 1851). Sebstian Hensel (1839-1898) war das einzige Kind von Fanny und Wilhelm Hensel. 1851 bezog er die Landwirtschaftsschule in Hohenheim bei Stuttgart. - VI: "[...] Meine Nichte [d. i. Ludmilla Assing] bedauert mit mir ungemein, daß wir gestern Ihrer gütigen erfreuenden Einladung nicht folgen konnten, wir hoffen uns baldigst schadlos halten zu dürfen, und unser größter Gewinn ist mit Ihnen zu sein, der durch Nebengewinne nicht erhöht wird! [...]" (4. II. 1853). - VII: "Auf Ihre liebenswürdigen Zeilen [...] würde ich gleich gestern geantwortet haben, hätte ich nicht vorher mit Frln. Solmar Rücksprache nehmen müssen. Dies ist erst am Abend möglich gewesen. Wir kommen also morgen (Montag) [...]" (26. II. 1854). Mit Henriette (Jettchen) Solmar (1794 bis etwa 1890) verband das Ehepaar Varnhagen sowie seine Nichte eine lange Freundschaft. - Tls. mit kleinen Randläsuren, insgesamt jedoch sehr gut erhalten. Varnhagens Briefe wurden 1869 in Marburg versteigert und zehn Jahre später erstmals von Konrad Feilchenfeldt im dritten Band der "Mendelssohn Studien" veröffentlicht sowie erschöpfend kommentiert (SS. 51-79).

        Historia do descobrimento e conquista da India pelos Portugueses. Nova edição. Lisbon, typographia Rollandiana, 1833.

      1833. Small 4to. 8 vols. bound in 7. Original cloth with giltstamped title to appealingly gilt spine. Marbled endpapers. All edges red. An early history of the Portuguese discovery and conquest of India. Large portions are concerned with the exploits of Afonso de Albuquerque and Vasco da Gama, whose journey via Ormuz, Mucat (Mazcate), Qatif (Catifa), Bahrain (Baharê), Khor Fakkan (Orfacão), etc. is comparable in importance only to Columbus's in the west, as it "opened the way for the maritime invasion of the East by Europe" (PMM 42). Da Gama's pioneering sea voyage ranks amongst the greatest historic events of the second millennium and as "one of the defining moments in the history of exploration" (BBC History, online). It is also considered the turning point in the political history of the Arabian Gulf region, followed as it was by a prolonged period of east-west commerce, conquest and conflict. - The Portuguese historian and traveller Fernão Lopez de Castanheda (1500-59) accompanied his father, a royal officer, to Portuguese India and to the Moluccas. He spent the next ten years travelling through Asia. During this period he collected materials for his "Historia", both from personal observation and from the documents and reports of others. The work was first published in 1552-61. - Some occasional browning. Binding somewhat rubbed and bumped at extremeties, with minor worming. Provenance: From the library of Paulo Arantes with his bookplate and ownership (dated 1925) on title page. Howgego I, C67. OCLC 313028250.
