        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Wien, 22. IV. 1834. - 4to. 1 S. mit eh. Adresse verso (Faltbrief). Siegelrest. An den Direktor des Ständischen Theaters in Graz, Josef Pellet, hinsichtlich der Einstudierung seiner Oper "Das Nachtlager in Granada": "Euer Wohlgeboren! Indem ich Ihnen für die mitgetheilte Nachricht über den Fortgang des Einstudierens der Oper höflichst danke, zeige ich Ihnen sogleich an, daß ich künftigen Sonntag am 27ten in der Frühe ganz sicher bey Ihnen eintreffen werde. - Vielleicht könnten wir dann noch vormittags eine kleine Probe wenigstens mit den Hauptparthien am Clavier machen - wenn es üblich ist. - - - Die Correctur Probe für das Orchester werden Sie warscheinlich noch im Laufe dieser Woche machen lassen - daß wir dann dadurch nicht aufgehalten werden. - In der angenehmen Hoffnung recht bald Ihre persönliche Bekanntschaft zu machen [.]". - Der aus dem Schwäbischen gebürtige Kreutzer war in den Jahren 1833 bis 1836 an das Josefstädter Theater gebunden, wo wenige Monate zuvor seine beiden bis heute gültigen Erfolge "Das Nachtlager in Granada" sowie Raimunds "Der Verschwender" mit seiner Musik uraufgeführt worden waren. Das "Nachtlager" wurde prompt nach Graz übernommen und hatte am 7. Mai Premiere. - Spuren alter Faltung; kl. Ausschnitt von Siegelöffnung (kein Textverlust). Verso Empfängervermerk.

        Autograph letter signed "Bellini" to Francesco Florimo (1800-1888)

      . 1 page of a bifolium. Dated Paris, December 19, 1834. In ink on lightweight paper. With integral autograph address panel. In Italian (with translation). Bellini informs Florimo that French composer [Antoine] Elwart (1808-1877), Bellini's protege, will be coming to Naples from the Paris Conservatoire and asks that Florimo introduce him to the composer Niccolo Zingarelli (1752-1827) and other important musicians in the city, and "be useful to him if you can." Browned; creased at folds; small pinholes to corners and near central fold not affecting text; remains of former hinging to blank upper margin. With early printed French dealer or auction catalogue description to blank lower right corner of verso.. A leading figure in early 19th-century opera, Bellini was especially noted for his expressive melodies and sensitive approach to text-setting. Francesco Florimo was his fellow-student at the Conservatory and closest friend. "... [His] attachment to Florimo never wavered, and his long and frequent letters to his friend are by far our fullest source of information about his professional and personal life. Florimo remained in Naples as librarian at the conservatory until his death in 1888, but his true calling was as chronicler and guardian of Bellini's fame. In 1882 he published a biography and edition of Bellini's letters; although Florimo's desire to protect and enhance his friend's reputation sometimes led him to censor or even substantially falsify the content of the letters, his portrait of the composer remains valuable and influential." Mary Ann Smart et al in Grove online Elward won the Prix de Rome shortly after this letter was written with his "Omaggio alla memoria di Vincenzo Bellini," performed at the Teatro Valle in 1835.

        Waarnemingen omtrent de horzel-maskers, welke in de maag van het paard huisvesten.

      Amsterdam, C. G. Sulpke, 1834. - 4to. (2), 143, (1) pp. With 6 hand-coloured engraved plates (1 folding, 5 full-page) by D. Sluyter after H. van Oort. Contemporary stiff grey wrappers. Rare separate issue of Numan's detailed and beautifully illustrated study of the larvae of the equine botfly (family Oestridae), an internal parasite of horses. Alexander Numan (1780-1852) discusses the different species of botfly found in the stomachs of horses, the way the eggs are transferred to the intestines, their growth and development, the effect on the health of the host animal, and the various ways they may be removed. The essay appeared both in the Nieuwe Verhandelingen der eerste klasse van het Koninklijk-Nederlandse Instituut van Wetenschappen, and in the present, much rarer separate issue, where only the plates refer to the journal. - Numan completed his medical studies at Groningen in 1804. He wrote a prize-winning essay on the Keil dysentery epidemic of 1810, which appeared in 1812. In the same year he was asked to translate a veterinary manual and later to write his own, which went through five editions from 1819 to 1856. When the first Dutch veterinary school opened at Utrecht in 1821, no suitable professor could be found in the practice, and the position went to Numan. He went on to write many excellent articles, the best known of which discusses cow pox (1831). - Wrappers slightly damaged at spine, but still very good. A fine copy of a rare and well-illustrated essay by a pioneering veterinary researcher. KVK (1 copy). NCC (4 copies). Not in Garrison/M., Landwehr Coloured Plates, Nissen ZBI.

        First City Directory for Bangor, ME

      Bangor, ME, 1834. Hardcover. Good. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. The very first city directory for Bangor, ME and as such quite scarce. "Containing the Names of the Inhabitants, Their Occupations, Places of Business, and Dwelling Houses, and the City Register, With Lists of the Wharves." With a fold-out hand-colored map by the prolific Pendleton's Lithographers of Boston. Advertisements throughout. Also included are city ordinances; we feel the one forbidding all manner of games involving sticks, bats, and balls in the streets is a bit harsh. Brown cloth boards are rubbed on edges, corners bumped, binding intact but there are a few small tears to cloth along spine. Pages are foxed and toned throughout. Small tear to map.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Weimar, 12. Juli 1834.. 2 SS. 4to. Doppelblatt. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief).. An den Philologen und Archäologen Joseph Anselm von Feuerbach (1798-1851): "Ihr lieber Brief liegt schon seit Monaten auf meinem Tisch und ich habe mich aufs neue der Säumigkeit gegen Sie anzuklagen [...] Ihr Werk [d. i. der 1833 erschienene "Vatikanische Apoll"] habe ich noch vor meiner Abreise von München angefangen und wollte Ihnen gern meinen Dank dafür zugleich mit einer kurzen Rechenschaft von dem Eindruck sagen, den es mir gemacht. Durch den traurigen Verlust aber, der über mich ergangen, als ich eben hier in den Hafen der Ruhe eingelaufen zu seyn dachte, bin ich wie zu Allem, so auch dazu unfähig geworden und es käme jetzt viel zu spät wenn ich Ihnen meine Freude über die Vorzüge Ihres Buches noch zu erkennen geben wollte. Nehmen Sie also statt dessen nur meinen einfachen Dank. Das aber kann ich nicht verschweigen, wie sehr es mich betrübt, Sie nicht an meiner Stelle in München zu wissen. Ich hatte es gehofft, Thiers [?] hatte es gewünscht - wie ist es möglich, daß man an einem Kunstorte, wie München, nicht darauf sucht, einen Professor der Archäologie zu haben? [...] Wegen des Honorars für den Aufsatz im Kunstblatt habe ich gleich nach Empfang Ihres Berichts an Cotta geschrieben u. von ihm die Versicherung erhalten daß die Sache unverzügl. besorgt werden solle; ich hoffe daher es wird seitdem alles in Ordnung gekommen seyn [...]". Schorn redigierte von 1820 bis 42 das Cottasche "Kunstblatt" in Stuttgart, unternahm Studienreisen nach Italien, Frankreich, England und in die Niederlande und lehrte seit 1826 als Professor in München; 1832 wurde er Hofrat und Direktor der Kunstanstalten in Weimar. - Bl. 2 mit Siegelrest und kl. Einr. (keine Textberührung); beide Seiten von Bl. 1 mit altem Sammlervermerk zum Verfasser bzw. zum Verfasser und zur Provenienz ("Don[atio] Fr. Prof. Feuerbach").

        Scenes and Recollections of Fly-fishing in Northumberland, Cumberland and Westmorland. By Stephen Oliver, The Younger

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1834. First edition. Vignette on title page and wood-engraved illustrations in the text. [iv], 212 pp. 1 vols. 12mo. Bound in Japanese embossed leather, titled in gilt up the spine, a.e.g. by Sarah T. Prideaux and signed with her stamped initials, "S.T.P. 1892" on the back pastedown. With an early American provenance, "James W. Shea Shadyside Pittsburgh 12/25/94". Extremities and joints rubbed with 1/4-inch triangular chip from head of spine, scuff at foot. Dark green half morocco slipcase and chemise. Very Early, Unrecorded Prideaux Binding An UNRECORDED Prideaux binding from early in her career, bound in embossed Japanese leather with polychrome patterns of fish, turtles, and seaweed similar to a binding on The Water Babies from the same period. The lettering is bold and simple, titled up the spine, with no further gilt tooling. Prideaux sent work to the Columbian World's Fair Exhibition in Chicago (1893). The Pittsburgh provenance suggests that this was one of the bindings displayed there."Her first three known bindings are quite plain, but they are bound in decorative leathers. One is gray and white snakeskin, the other two in colorful Japanese embossed leathers; of this latter pair, one has the design of seaweeds and sea creatures, the other the design of chrysanthemums and other flowers (The British Bookmaker, Vol. 4, p. 26). The sea creatures binding is on one of two copies of Charles Kingsley's The Water Babies, bound for the 1891 Tregaskis exhibition, probably the first exhibition Sarah Prideaux entered ... " (Tidcombe).This binding is not recorded in the Catalogue of Books Bound (1900) nor does it figure in Tidcombe's list of bindings by Prideaux derived from the published Catalogue and consultation of the binder's own annotated copy.

        Washington has been accused of lying!

      Autograph Letter Signed ?Law Washington,? 3.5 pages, 7.75? x 9.75?, front and verso on two conjoined sheets. Campbellton [Virginia], June 1, 1834. Addressed on fourth page to ?William F. Taleofero, esq. / Hague. P.O.? [Virginia]. Small paper loss at one edge of both sheets. Very good condition. Lawrence Washington (1791-1875) married his 5th cousin, Sarah Tayloe (1800-1886), daughter of William Augustine Washington (1757-1810), whose father Augustine was George Washington?s half-brother. Lawrence, who served as a Virginia State Senator, lived in Campbellton Farm, Westmoreland County, Virginia, which he purchased in 1830. Washington is angry about a letter he has just received from a Mr. Bayard. He quotes an extract from the letter to William Taleofero, then writes, in part, ?This attempt on the part of Mr. Bayard to excuse, or extenuate his own unaccountable conduct by casting censure on me is to say the least of it is both unkind & ungenerous. You will perceive that in a part of the extract he uses this language, ?Other considerations which I have stated to Mr. Taleofero impressed me with a confident belief that Mr. W would not decline a request when there could be no risque of loss? T. -- Now the object of this letter, is to ask as a favour, (if it will violate no confidence on your part) that you will inform me particularly what are the ?other considerations? which Mr. B states induced ?a confident belief? that I would join him in the bond."?I unhesitatingly & positively declare, that I did not, directly, or indirectly, by word, act, or deed, give Mr. Bayard the slightest reason to believe that I would under any circumstances become his security as guardian of his grand daughter ... In regard to my becoming his security for his administration on the estate of WAW [William Augustine Washington], it is scarcely necessary to say that the two cases are so entirely dissimilar, as to make it not a little surprising that he should have that subject in his letter ...? From the Collection of Henry E. Luhrs, including a typescript of this letter on stationery of the Lincoln Library, Shippenburg, Pennsylvania

      Puteaux bei Paris, "Mercredi matin" o. D. [Mai-Okt. 1834 oder Mai-Sept. 1835].. 1 S. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt mit Adresse am Gegenblatt verso (Faltbrief). Kl.-8vo.. Unveröffentlichtes Schreiben an eine Madame Catterou [?] im Pariser Hotel Lillois (rue de Richelieu 63), auf der Suche nach seiner verschwundenen Wäscherin: "Mr. Bellini prie Madame Catterou a lui vouloir donner des nouvelles de sa blanchisseuse, par ce que a trois semaines que ne la voit pas. Milles salutations - [...] 19 bis rampe de Neuilly a Puteaux". - Etwas braunfleckig bzw. knittrig; die Ränder leicht ausgefranst. Geschrieben in den letzten anderthalb Lebensjahren, während seines Aufenthalts im in der Pariser Vorstadt Puteaux gelegenen kleinen Landhaus des englischen Glücksritters Samuel Lewis (Levys) und dessen Gefährtin, einer ehemaligen Operntänzerin: "Seduced by two adventurers, the English 'couple' named Lewis, Vincenzo Bellini accepted their offer of hospitality [...]. The musician lost all of his savings, amounting to thirty thousand francs, in the speculations of his host, receiving in exchange the favors of 'Lady Lewis' - who was known by some as the 'gay Mademoiselle Olivier' - and the tranquillity to compose 'I Puritani'" (Quatriglio, Sicily [2011], p. 68). Nur Monate nach der triumphalen Premiere der "Puritani", seinem größten Erfolg, starb Bellini in der Villa Lewis in Puteaux. Das "Ehepaar" war beim Eintreffen der Freunde des Komponisten spurlos verschwunden, was auch zu Spekulationen über eine Vergiftung Anlass gab. - Nicht bei: Bellini, Epistolario (hg. Luisa Cambi, 1943).

        Fragmens Psychologiques Sur La Folie

      nbsp;Paris -Crochard, Librarie Editeur, 1834 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. Psychological Fragments Of Madness. First editionIncludes information on hallucinations, visions and the terror of damnation. Leuret was an important figure in the early days of French psychiatry. He stressed the importance of using a rational and humane approach in treatment of the mentally ill, and also believed that the criminally insane were sick individuals who were incapable of controlling their behavior. He felt that the origins of mental illness were unknown, and that it was wrong to define madness from only a somatic standpoint. Leuret's psychiatric theories put him at odds with other French physicians, particularly those who thought that the source of mental illness could be localized to a specific part of the brain's anatomy. Condition: In paper wraps. Externally, chipping to paper wraps, small close tears and fading. Internally, generally firmly bound with marks to the odd page, bright and clean. There are labels to the endpapers. Overall: VERY GOOD.

        Eigenh. Brief m. Unterschrift.

      Mannheim, 1834.. 2 S., 4°.. [An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875)]. - "Eisenlohr studierte 1817 an der Universität Heidelberg Mathematik und Physik. 1819 wurde Eisenlohr zum Professor für Mathematik und Physik am Lyceum in Mannheim ernannt. 1840 übernahm er am Polytechnischen Institut in Karlsruhe eine Professur für Physik. Als Wissenschaftler wurde Eisenlohr mit optischen Untersuchungen bekannt. Diese Forschungsergebnisse veröffentlichte er in seinem Lehrbuch der Physik. Eisenlohr gründete die erste Gewerbeschule in Baden in Mannheim und 1847 eine Schule für Uhrmacher im Schwarzwald. Bis zu seiner Pensionierung 1865 förderte Eisenlohr im Großherzogtum maßgeblich und erfolgreich das Schulwesen; besonders die Berufsschulen lagen ihm sehr am Herzen" (Wikipedia). --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz. Während eines halbjährigen Urlaubs im Jahre 1838 besuchte er chemische Institute in Göttingen, Heidelberg, Frankfurt und Paris. In Gießen machte er sich bei Justus von Liebig mit der organischen Elementaranalyse vertraut. Ab 1843 arbeitete er als Professor für technische Chemie am Polytechnischen Institut der Universität Wien und übernahm dort 1845 die Professur für allgemeine Chemie. Schrötter war neben Baumgartner, Ettingshausen und Haidinger einer der Begründer der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien und wurde 1850 ihr Generalsekretär. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina wählte Schrötter 1856 zu ihrem Mitglied. Ab 1868 leitete er das österreichische Hauptmünzamt und wurde gleichzeitig zum Ministerialrat ernannt. Er wurde 1874 in den Ruhestand versetzt und eröffnete in seiner Wohnung ein Privatlaboratorium, in dem er Studien über Edelmetalle betrieb. 1875 starb er in Wien. Schrötter hat in seinem Leben ca. 60 wissenschaftliche Publikationen verfasst. Ab 1845 beschäftigte Schrötter sich intensiv mit Phosphor. 1848 gelang ihm der Nachweis der schon von Berzelius geäußerten Vermutung, dass roter Phosphor eine allotrope Modifikation des weißen Phosphors, nicht aber eine Phosphorverbindung ist. Schrötter wandelte weißen Phosphor durch Erhitzen in roten um, den man zeitweise Schrötterschen Phosphor nannte. Sein Verfahren zur Darstellung desselben revolutionierte die Streichholzindustrie, wo roter Phosphor schon bald als Bestandteil der Reibflächen genutzt wurde. Er war ein Organisator in Industrie und Wissenschaft sowie Berater bei den Vorbereitungen zur Novara-Expedition und zur Österreich-Ungarischen Nordpolexpedition. -

        Die Ruine in sanftem Licht

      um 1834 um 1834. Aquarell auf Papier, unten rechts in Tusche signiert: "F. Catel", 17,7 x 22 cm. Professionell unter säurefreiem Museumspassepartout montiert.. Der Nachruhm Franz Ludwig Catels gründet sich heute hauptsächlich auf seine vielen Landschaftsgemälde und Ölskizzen aus Italien, jenem Land, dass er von 1811 bis zu seinem Tode nur selten und kurz verließ. Dieses Fundament legen aber nicht einfach nur fotografisch genaue Schilderungen der südländischen Topographie. Vielmehr gelingt Catel eine mustergültige Verbindung von Natur und Antike, von Landleben und Idylle, die darüber hinaus durch eine Mischung von Vergangenem und Gegenwärtigem dem Betrachter besonders nahe gebracht wird. Die Bilder sind Identifikationsflächen der touristischen Erfahrung eines jeden Italienreisenden zu jener Zeit, natürlich ins Ideale gesteigert, allerdings ohne den Realitätsbezug zu verlieren. So greifen vorgefundene Motive und Idealvorstellungen ineinander und bieten dem flüchtigen Wanderer als Käufer der Gemälde Erinnerungs- und Einfühlungsmomente. Die Balance, die Catel dafür in seinen Bildern erreicht, ist der Grundstein seines Erfolges. Unser Aquarell gehört zu einer Gruppe von Aquarellen, die Catel größtenteils im Jahre 1834 geschaffen hat. Hierzu zählen zahlreiche Blätter mit italienischen Motiven, die den Fokus auf die Architektur legen. So kennt man eine Ansicht des Trajanforums in Rom während eines Gewitters2 oder des Jupitertempels in Pompeji, um nur zwei Ansichten zu nennen. Zu dieser Gruppe gehören auch zwei auf das Jahr 1834 datierte Aquarelle mit der Darstellung der Trimburg bei Elfershausen nahe Bad Kissingen. In allen Blättern verzichtet Catel auf scharfe Konturen und verlässt sich ganz auf das sanfte Ineinanderfließen der Aquarellfarbe. So ergibt sich ein einheitlich weicher, atmosphärischer Ton, der die Blätter in ein eigenes Licht taucht. Die Häufung jener Aquarelle im Jahre 1834 sowie ihre sehr ähnliche Motivwahl und Ausführung deuten darauf hin, dass sie in einem zusammenfassenden Kontext entstanden sind. Leider lässt sich dieser aufgrund fehlender Quellen heute nicht mehr rekonstruieren. So muss offen bleiben, nach welchen Kriterien Catel die Motive aus Rom und Pompeji auswählte und wie die drei bis heute bekannt gewordenen deutschen Ruinenansichten in diesen Kontext eingefügt werden können. Man darf vermuten, dass Catel 1834 in Deutschland war und bei dieser Gelegenheit noch weitere Ansichten von Ruinen geschaffen hat. Aber auch ohne den Entstehungszusammenhang unseres Blattes zu kennen, vermag das Aquarell durch seine subtile Farbführung und die gekonnte Mischung aus Detailwiedergabe und stimmungstragender Summierung zu begeistern. Catels Idee einer in den Kreislauf der Natur eingebetteten Antike, die die Vergangenheit präsentiert ohne das Motiv der Vergänglichkeit zu strapazieren, findet sich, wie auf vielen seiner italienischen Gemälde, auch in diesem Aquarell. Die Ruine ist in ihrer Symbiose mit der Natur nicht Zeichen des Endes sondern des Übergangs.

        The animal kingdom, arranged according to its organization, serving as a foundation for the natural history of animals and an introduction to comparative Anatomy.... with figures designed after Nature...by M. Latreille...translated from the latest French edition. With additional notes, and illustrated by nearly 500 additional plates. In four volumes

      London, G. Henderson, 1834-1837. Four parts in eight (four text and four plate volumes). 8vo. Text with seven engraved portraits. Plate volumes with 736 engraved plates of which 698 are hand-coloured (as intended). Original uniform black half calf over marbled boards with gilt linings, spines richly gilted with two dark red morocco labels containing gilt titles. Marbled edges, marbled endpapers.l Georges Léopold Chrétien Frédéric Dagobert baron de Cuvier (1769-1832) was one of the foremost French geologists, palaeontologists, zoologists and comparative anatomists, and certainly the first to integrate these disciplines. This resulted in his influential Règne Animal distribué d'après son Organisation pour servir de base à l'Histoire Naturelle des Animaux et d'introduction à l'Anatomie Comparée (1817, revised 1830) of which this is the first literal translation into English, with many footnotes discussing additional facts and opinions. This edition should not be confused with the near simultaneously published reworked edition of Cuvier's magnum opus, edited by Edward Griffith and Edward Pidgeon, and also known as "The Animal Kingdom". The latter is much more common. The text-parts have 1-2 engraved portraits (tissue-guarded Cuvier (frontis to part I), John James Audubon (at the beginning of the birds-section of part I), Linnaeus (frontis to part II), Buffon (in part II), Latreille (frontis to part III), William Kirby (frontis to part IV), and William Spence (in part IV). The subdivision of the plate volumes is as follows: I Mammals and Birds: 80, and 116 plates; II Reptiles and Fishes: 43, 153; III Mollusca, Annelides, Crustacea, Arachnides: 79, 11, 59, 50; IV Insecta, Zoophytes 121, 24. In other words, a complete copy, as called for in the plate captions and index, including two plates not called for in the plate descriptions, and six numbers separately listed in the text (and counted by Nissen) but combined on two plates and not counted apart, and disregarding 12 plate numbers that have never been used. Nissen mentions "789 Tafeln", but among his errors the gravest is 99 plates for Arachnides (should be 51). Some scuffing to boards and, very lightly, to spine ends. Two short tears in one index leaf, five b/w plates with a small water stain in the top inner corner, (apparently stained before binding), small bookplate on front pastedown of all volumes. In all, an exceptional set in a fine binding. Nissen ZBI, 1016.
