Ferrey Benjamin (1810-1880) was an architect of the Gothic-Revival (Neo-Gothic). He began his architectural activities in London, Bloomsbury, 1834, date of this edition, demonstrating his mastery of Gothic architecture. He was recognized for his early talent for drawing. His career was a success and honors. Benjamin was born at Christ Church, and his father was mayor, we can imagine that the building deeply influenced his vision of architecture.

Sa carrière fut couronné de succès et d'honneurs. Benjamin naquit à Christ-Church, et son père en était maire, on peut imaginer que le bâtiment influença profondément sa vision de l'architecture. En outre, il s'agit certainement d'une des premières monographies complètes d'un monument de l'église.Ex-libris de Henry Catleman.

        Albert HENDSCHEL (1834 Frankfurt 1883). Künstlerkarikaturen. um 1851. 2von2

      - Albert Hendschel (1834 Frankfurt - Frankfurt 1883). Künstlerkarikaturen. um 1851 um 1851. Radierung auf Papier. -- Technik: -- Radierung auf Papier. verso in Bleistift bezeichnet. -- Maße: -- Platte: 9 x 10,6 cm. Papier: 24,9 x 33,2 cm -- Zustand: -- Sehr guter Zustand, im breiten Papierrand leicht fleckig. -- Beschreibung: -- Bereits in jungen Jahren regte sich in dem jungen Albert Hendschel das Zeichentalent. Eine treffend ausgeführteKarikatur des Gymnasiallehrers überzeugte dann sogar den Vater, die künstlerische Laufbahndes Jungen zu fördern. Hendschel studierte sodann ab 1847 an der Städelschule und war dort seit 1851bei Jakob Becker eingeschrieben. Auf unseren beiden wunderbaren Karikaturen stellt er auf dem erstenBlatt in der oberen Reihe von links nach rechts seine Mitschüler in der Klasse von Jakob Becker am StädelschenKunstinstitut dar: Otto Scholderer (1834-1902), Julius Hamel (1834-1907), Louis Lang (1824-1886), Karl Bernhard Schlösser (1832-nach 1914), Karl Harveng (1832-1874) und einen gewisser Nehrlich,über den allerdings keine weiteren Informationen vorliegen. Im zweiten Blatt finden sich nun nicht nur Akademieschüler: Die erste Reihe beginnt links mit zwei Figuren,die nicht identifiziert sind. Dann folgen als Mitstreiter der Akademie der Architekt Friedrich WilhelmLudwig (geboren 1828) und die Maler Karl Freiberger (1831-1855) und Leopold Bode (1831-1906). Die nächste Figur ist rückseitig als E. Hallenstein identifiziert, der zumindest als Künstler bei Jakob Beckernicht erwähnt ist. Dann folgt Carl Hessemer (1853-1944), bei dem es sich um den Sohn des ebenfallsan der Kunstakademie lehrenden Friedrich Maximilian Hessemer handelt. Der letzte Künstler im oberenBunde ist Victor Lorie (1835-1912). Darunter folgen als Porträt links Johann Heinrich Hasselhorst (1825-1904), Ernst Schalck (1827-1865), Philipp Winterwerb (1827-1873), Adolf Schreyer (1828-1899) und PeterBecker (1828-1904). Unsere beiden Blätter sind ein sprechendes Zeugnis von Hendschels meisterhaft verkürzter und dafür umsotreffenderer Linienführung und der messerscharfen Charakterisierung seiner Mitmenschen. Ob es sich bei den Darstellungen in der unteren Reihe (besonders des ersten Blattes) um verschlüsselteAttribute zu den Künstlerfreunden handelt, wie teils vermutet wird, muss vorerst ungeklärt bleiben. Diekleine Dame in der Mitte auf dem ersten Blatt ist rückseitig mit "Erlangerin" bezeichnet. Auch bei denanderen Darstellungen dürfte es sich eher um spontane Einfälle handeln, teils aus dem Alltag, teils ausdem Akademieleben. Doch auch hier macht die Fähigkeit Hendschels, Typen mit wenigen Linien treffendzu charakterisieren, staunen. --

        Autograph letter signed "Bellini" to Count Rodolphe Apponyi

      - The opera to which Bellini refers was undoubtedly I puritani, his last work. Commissioned by the Théâtre Italien in Paris in 1834, I puritani was premièred there on January 24, 1835, just twelve days after the writing of this letter. Bellini died later that year, on September 23.Apponyi was a member of a Hungarian noble family associated with many important musicians of the day. 2 pp. of a bifolium. Octavo. Dated Monday morning. Postmarked [?]January 12, 1835. In black ink. On stationery with "Weynen Superfin" blindstamped to upper portions of leaves. Integral address panel with the recipient's name and the address of the Austrian Embassy in Paris to final page. With fully intact red wax seal. In Italian and French (with translation). Bellini tries to secure the Count a place at the première of his latest opera, upon which he is "always working." He invites the Count's wife, who has a "delicate musical taste," to one of its dress rehearsals.". I met your cousin at Madame Graham's and I begged him to tell you that I had gone to the Bureau des Italiens to try to grant your wish. therefore, if the day of the first performance falls on a day when the halls are occupied almost entirely by subscribers, you'll get priority. Tell [the Countess] I am sorry I am not yet able to leave my desk, since I'm always working on the opera. I hope she will want to honor me by coming to some dress rehearsal, to give me advice with her delicate musical taste.

L'autore della traduzione e curatore dell'opera, il medico Filoteo D’Ippolito, ebbe i natali a Vasto (1802-1866). I vivaci disegni a corredo dell’opera furono realizzati dal pittore Filippo Molino, anch'egli vastese (1804 - 1856). Cresciuto artisticamente a Napoli, dove all'epoca fioriva la Scuola di Posillipo di Antonio Pitloo, Giacinto Gigante, Gabriele Smargiassi e più tardi i fratelli Palizzi, già nel 1831, all’età di 27 anni, si distinse all’Esposizione di Belle Arti di Napoli, mentre ottenne la medaglia d’argento di prima classe alla stessa Esposizione del 1837. Il Molino si specializzò poi come disegnatore e incisore, collaborando anche al Poliorama Pittoresco (cfr. Benezit).

Estimated at around 105,000 volumes in its entirity, the full auction lasted two hundred and sixteen days, and made 60,000, roughly 4. 2 million in today's currency.

Internally, the binding is somewhat tender in places, but largely holding firm, and there is foxing, creasing and spotting throughout, as well as inscriptions to many. Overall: FAIR.

        VUES PITTORESQUES DES COMTÉS DE WESTMORLAND, CUMBERLAND, DURHAM, ET NORTHUMBERLAND

      A. Fisher, R. Fisher, et P. Jackson, London 1834 - Profusely Illustrated with Lake District Views,And in Beautiful, Remarkably Well-Preserved Bindings. 286 x 222 mm (11 1/4 x 8 3/4"). Three volumes. Translated by J. F. Gerard. First Edition in French. VERY PLEASING CONTEMPORARY DARK GREEN HALF MOROCCO OVER LIGHTER GREEN MOIRÉ CLOTH, covers with gilt fillet and blind-rolled lattice border, spines with gilt-tooled raised bands at head and tail, and with two elongated raised panels elegantly gilt in a gothic pattern, three brown morocco labels, marbled endleaves and edges. Engraved title page with vignette in volume I, frontispieces in volumes II and III and 213 steel engravings on 108 plates by Thomas Allom, George Pickering, and others, original tissue guards. Bicknell "The Picturesque Scenery of the Lake District" 112 (English edition). Tips of corners bruised, just a small number of plates with easily tolerable foxing or browning, otherwise AN ESPECIALLY FINE COPY, the text and plates unusually clean and entirely fresh, and the very pleasing bindings bright, lustrous, and altogether attractive on the shelf. This is a particularly clean set--in especially attractive and unusual bindings--of the French edition of Thomas Rose's popular views of the Lake District, first published in English in 1832-35. The present edition differs from the English issue only in the language of the descriptive text. As Bicknell notes of this work, "almost every aspect of Lake District scenery was covered, including views from fairly remote spots high in the fells. . . . The engravers showed considerable virtuosity in handling the delicate line possible on a steel plate to achieve splendid tonal effects." Originally published in parts by subscription as a portion of "Fisher's Picturesque Illustrations of Great Britain and Ireland," the present item was then separately issued in three annual volumes (as here). Thomas Allom (1804-72) was an English architect of some importance: he was a founding member of what eventually became the Royal Institute of British Architects, and he designed, with Sir Charles Barry, plans for the House of Parliament. But he was chiefly known as a topographical illustrator. He executed many hundreds of drawings based on his wide travels, and produced a substantial series of travel books for the publisher Fisher between 1828 and 1850. Our set is uncommonly desirable because of its condition and its distinctive appearance, with design and decoration reminiscent of so-called "cathedral" bindings. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Svenska fornsånger.

      En samling af kämpavisor, folk-visor, lekar och dansar, samt barn- och vall-sånger. I-III. Sthlm, P. A. Norstedt & söner, 1834-42. 8:o. XXIII,(1 blank),424,(32) + XVI,482,(48) + XXVI,562 s. Tre fina halvpergamentband med rödbruna titeletiketter i marokäng samt årtal och tryckort i guldprägling längst ned på ryggarna (Hedberg). Övre stänkta snitt, övriga snitt oskurna. Medbundna gamla gråpappersomslag. Enstaka lagerfläckar. De avslutande musikbladen i andra delen och några ark i tredje delen något mer fläckiga. Fin svit med Gustaf Bernströms exlibris.. De opaginerade sidorna längst bak i första och andra delen utgörs av nottryck. Arwidsson hade sedan 1827 i samarbete med Leonhard Fredrik Rääf planlagt vad som skulle bli "Svenska fornsånger", men arbetet drog ut på tiden och det dröjde till den 11 maj 1832 innan en prenumerationsanmälan trycktes. I denna uppger Arwidsson att hans arbete ska utgöra "ett slags fortsättning" på Geijers och Afzelius "Svenska folk-visor" och huvudsakligen innehålla L. F. Rääfs och J. Wallmans samlingar, "frukter af långvariga och oförtrutna bemödanden."

        St. Goar predigt am Rhein das Evangelium.

      . Bleistift, teilweise blau, grau und braun laviert, auf gelblichem Papier, verso betitelt "Der Erzähler". 29,2:36,4 cm; oben rundbogig geschlossen. In den Ecken leicht knitterfaltig, kleine Einrisse in den Rändern restauriert. Der oben rundbogige Abschluß der Darstellung läßt darauf schließen, daß das Bildmotiv ursprünglich als Wandmalerei ausgeführt werden sollte. Vorstudie zu dem Gemälde von 1834, das sich im Besitz des Museum Altona in Hamburg befindet. Vergleichsliteratur: Boetticher Bd. I, Tl. 1, S. 264, Nr. 6; Lexikon der Düsseldorfer Malerschule 1819-1918. München, Bruckmann, 1997, Bd. I, S. 307/308, Abb. 356.. Ebers studierte seit 1829/30 an der Düsseldorfer Akademie; zwar sind in den Schülerlisten die Namen seiner Lehrer nicht genannt, doch dokumentierte A. Graf Raczynski, daß Ebers im 1. Halbjahr 1834 zu jenen Schülern zählte, die "unter der unmittelbaren Leitung des Direktors Schadow" arbeiteten (A. Raczynski, Geschichte der neueren deutschen Kunst. 3 Bde. Berlin 1836-41. Bd. I, S. 114). Nach einem dreijährigen Aufenthalt in seiner Heimat gehörte er 1837 der Meisterklasse der Düsseldorfer Akademie an. Von Beginn seiner künstlerischen Tätigkeit an wählte er Motive aus dem Milieu der Schmuggler, Fischer, Schiffer oder Soldaten, die teils dramatisch, teils humoristisch geschildert sind. Weiterhin beschäftigten ihn historische und romantisch-mittelalterliche Themen. In Komposition und Gebärden der Figuren läßt sich der Einfluß von C.F. Lessing (1808-1880) nachweisen. Durch Kontakte zu Düsseldorfer Malerkollegen wurde er in seiner Auffasssung der Genremalerei bestärkt. Ferner schuf er Porträts, Marine- und Landschaftsbilder. 1844 kehrte Ebers in seine Heimatstadt zurück und heiratete 1845 Lessings Schwester Fanny. Nach 1850 wechselte er häufig seinen Wohnort. Er lebte in Gaffron bei Lüben, in Dresden, Görlitz und nach 1869 in Beuthen an der Oder. Seit den 1860er Jahren war er kaum noch künstlerisch tätig, stellte aber doch 1881 und 1883 in Dresden aus.

        THE SACRED ANNUAL: BEING THE MESSIAH, A POEM

      London: John Turrill, 1834. Fourth Edition n. Hardcover. 191 x 121 mm (7 1/2 x 4 3/4"). xi, [i] pp., [2] leaves, 300 pp. Fourth Edition. Appealing 19th century black straight-grain morocco, covers with a gilt filigree and blind-rolled frame, raised bands, spine compartments gilt with curling cornerpieces and lancet tools radiating from a central circle, black morocco label, blind-rolled turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. With extra chromolithographed "missal" title page, woodcut tailpiece by John Franklin, and 10 COLOR LITHOGRAPHS mounted on heavy stock, three of these by John Martin (The Temptation, The Sermon on the Mount, and The Remorse of Judas), all lithographs with captioned tissue guards. Front pastedown with armorial bookplate bearing the motto "Soli Possumus Facere Nihil," front free endpaper with animated engraved bookplate of George Oliver Clark, with the added inscription "To 'Nona' and Michele with 'Didi's' love - Jan. 21, 1948." Joints a little rubbed (part of the front joint with thin crack), spine gilt a little muted, corners very slightly worn, but the binding without any serious condition issues and definitely pleasing. Isolated faint spots internally, but the text and plates generally very clean and fresh. This verse retelling of the life of Christ is enhanced with very attractive color lithographs by leading illustrators and presented in a pleasing, appropriately somber binding. Foremost among the illustrators represented is John Martin (1789-1854), who began his career modestly as a provincial painter of coats of arms on the coaches of the nobility and ended up being one of the most popular English artists of the 19th century. He studied under the Italian artist Bonifacio Musso and moved to London with his master in 1806. He first exhibited a painting at the Royal Academy in 1812 (selling it for 50 guineas), and this was followed by a series of other exhibited works, most of them huge canvases showing classical or biblical themes, some of which carried off substantial monetary prizes. Of particular note was his painting of "Belshazzar's Feast," for which he was awarded £200 in 1821. His illustrations for the present work stand out from the other plates by their scope and grandeur: while most of the other artists chose to portray more intimate scenes, the figures in Martin's works are quite small, surrounded by imposing mountains, towers, and sweeping clouds. Humanity is dwarfed by the awe-inspiring divine. In addition to being a painter, Martin was a major mezzotint engraver, and it was as an engraver that he became immensely popular with the public (it was also as an engraver that he earned the largest share of his income). His mezzotint illustrations for American publisher Septimus Prowett's edition of Milton's "Paradise Lost" are perhaps his best, and certainly his best-known, works. The author of the present book, Robert Montgomery (1807-55), was a great admirer of Martin, lauding him as "a second Milton," and he was no doubt extremely pleased to have his work illustrated by such an artist. Montgomery rose from very humble beginnings to become a clergyman in the Church of England and a bestselling author of devotional texts. Although incurring the contempt of critics--one describing the author as "a byword for all that is vacant, vague, and inane"--Montgomery produced religious epics that found an enthusiastic readership among what DNB calls "a large and relatively new class of readers whose tastes and expectations were very different from those of the cultural élite." This work shows up in the marketplace occasionally, but it is almost always found in a restored binding and/or in unpleasant condition.

        Allgemeine Bemerkungen". Autograph manuscript signed.

      Offenbach, 3. II. 1834. - 4to. 1 p. Preface to his list of Mozart's musical manuscripts: "Die hierin thematisch verzeichneten Manuscripte von W. A. Mozart, geb. 27. 1. 1756 und gestorben 5. 12. 1791, enthalten diejenigen seiner Compositionen welche ich besitze und welche ich theils im Jahr 1799 von der Wittwe Mozart, theils späterhin von anderen brieflich als mein nunmehriges Eigenthum an mich gebracht habe. Diese Manuscripte sind nun in der Ordnungsfolge hier verzeichnet, wie sie vom Jahr 1764 anfangend, bis zum Jahr 1784 gehen, von da an Mozart seinen bekannten thematischen Katalog geschrieben und bis an's Ende seines Lebens fortgesetzt hat, und von welchen darin aufgezeichneten Werken ich ebenfalls im Jahr 1799 diejenigen käuflich an mich brachte, welche damals noch vorhanden waren. Da ich einige dieser Manuscripte inzwischen verkauft habe, und dies namentlich an Herrn A. Stumpff in London, und da mir auch etliche abhanden gekommen sind, so habe ich bey denjenigen Manuscripten, welche ich gegenwärtig nicht mehr besitze, ein mit rother Tinte bemerktes [Zeichen] angeführt; so wie ich auch diejenigen Manuscripte, welche meines Wissens bereits gedruckt worden sind, mit einem rothen Strich unterstrichen habe. Diese beyden letzteren Zeichen gelten auch für den gedruckten Katalog. Noch bemerke ich: daß ich diejenigen Manuscripte, bey welchen das Jahr nicht genau angegeben werden kann, ihrem Decennium nach eingetragen habe, somit alle in die 1760ger Jahre gehörigen in die 176-, und die in die 1770er Jahre gehörigen unter 177-. Auch in die 1780er gehörige kommen noch einige mit 178- bezeichnet vor. Die in der 3ten Colonne bemerkte Zahl befindet sich, einer früheren durch Gleissner vorgenommenen Ordnungseintheilung zufolge, auf den Manuscripten." - J. A. André, a talented pianist and son of the Offenbach music publisher Johann André, "acquired Mozart's manuscript archive for 3150 fl. in the year 1800, after Haydn apparently had pointed out the widow's precarious financial situation and Breitkopf & Härtel had declined a purchase in spite of long consideration [.] Thanks to the efforts of Abbé M. Stadler, Constanze's second husband G. N. v. Nissen was able to prepare a checklist in 1798 which would be published in 1828 as an appendix to his Life of Mozart, but the manuscript of which had been the basis of the negotiations. In 1805 and 1828 André published the most important precursor to the Köchelverzeichnis: 'W. A. Mozarts thematischer Katalog [.] nebst einem erläuternden Vorbericht von A. André'. In 1841 he published a checklist, prepared by his student Heinrich Henkel (1822-99), listing all of Mozart's original manuscripts still in his possession, with the purpose of selling them to the highest bidder. After his death the remaining manuscripts were dispersed among his heirs by lottery [.] His lasting credit must be his care for the works of Mozart, based not only on the considerations of a publisher or on the mere joy of possession, but more specifically on his appreciation for the master's epoch-making significance" (cf. MGG I, 459f.). - Damage to the right edge, some tears reaching into the text.

        Memoir of a Proposed New System of Permanent Fortification.

      London: James Cochrane and Co., 1834 - Quarto (269 × 217 mm) Contemporary half russia, marbled boards and endpapers. Somewhat rubbed, corners through, neatly rebacked in matching sheep, EX-King's Inns Dublin Library, their stamps verso of the title page and last plate, light browning throughout, the plates, which are on very heavy paper-stock, are foxed and spotted, two with archival tissue repairs, remains about very good. 6 folding plates lithographed by Hullmandel, half-title bound in. First edition, uncommon, just six locations on Copac, OCLC adds another half dozen. Bordwine, described on the title page as "Professor of Fortification at the Honourable East India Company's Military Seminary, Addiscombe; late of the Quarter-Master-General's Staff, etc.", had served with the 88th Regiment "under General Whitlock [sic.], but was deprived of his commission (a majority) in consequence of his having issued a pamphlet in which he criticized that general's conduct" (ODNB), which means that he almost certainly was on the ill-fated Buenos Aires Expedition of 1806. In 1809 he was made assistant professor of fortification at Addiscombe, becoming professor in 1811: "In 1803 Bordwine [had been] appointed an assistant in the quartermaster-general's department, and attached to the staff of the Western District. A French invasion was expected, and Bordwine drew up a sketch of a new circular system of fortification for the defence of the country. He continued the work at intervals, and at last in 1809 published the Sketch and Brief Description of a New System of Fortification, which apparently attracted very little attention at the time. He was, however, prompted by friends to take the subject up again in 1830, resulting in the large Memoir of a Proposed New System of Permanent Fortification (1834). He retired from Addiscombe on account of ill health on 4 February 1835, and died at Croydon on 21 February 1835". [Attributes: First Edition]

Du Ponceau [1760-1844] is an important figure in the early history of American Law and letters. Aide-de-camp to Baron von Steuben during the American Revolution, he founded the Law Academy of Philadelphia, was the President of the American Philosophical Society and was a much-consulted expert on international relations and linguistics. Brief View discusses the history of the Continental Congress and Articles of Confederation, examines the powers granted to the three branches of government and reviews topics such as commerce, finance, foreign relations, the admission new states and the relationship between the Constitution and the common law. The appendix prints the texts of the Declaration of Independence, Articles of Confederation, Constitution, and Washington's Farewell Address. A Spanish-language edition intended for Cuba and Puerto Rico was published in 1848, a French edition in 1837. Drayton [1776-1846] held a variety of political posts in South Carolina and was elected to Congress as a Democrat in 1824. He supported slavery, but he was a firm opponent of nullification, despite its wide support in South Carolina. After leaving Congress in 1833 he moved to Philadelphia and served for a time as President of the Bank of the United States. Bauer, Commentaries on the Constitution 75.
