        Promotional design for "The Art School of Aug. Will"

      New York, n.d. - A very pleasing design by Will, advertising his studio school at Broadway and Astor Place, where he taught drawing and painting, as well as executing commissions for Harper's, Scribner's, The Century and other magazines, and books. Will (1834-1910) was born in Germany and came to New York at the age of 21. He was a painter in oil and watercolor, and an illustrator and draftsman, although his first work to be exhibited at the National Academy, in 1858, were four crayon portraits. In his later years he lived in Jersey City, where he did numerous paintings and drawings of the town, one hundred of which were shown at a special exhibition after his death Ca. 1875. 12 x 8-1/2 inches, in an archival mat. Pen and ink on paper, with Chinese white. Fine

        LIVES OF THE NECROMANCERS

      1834 - GODWIN, William. LIVES OF THE NECROMANCERS: or, an account of the most eminent persons in successive ages, who have claimed for themselves, or to whom has been imputed by others, the exercise of magical power. London: Frederick J. Mason, 1834. First edition. lxx,465 pp. Octavo. Expertly rebacked nineteenth-century binding; bound in quarter black calf, with the original spine laid-down, grey cloth sides, red spine label, all edges speckled red. Occasional light pencil marks and brief pencil notes in margins, else very clean. The cloth is lightly spotted, the fore-corners are gently bumped, and the top-edge is dust-soiled; nonetheless, it is an attractive and solid copy. Very good plus. Godwin's stated purpose for writing this book was "to exhibit a fair delineation of the credulity of the human mind." He begins his survey with an account of ancient superstitions and ends it with the New England witch trials at the end of the seventeenth century. It is the last work Godwin published in his lifetime.

        Die Belagerung des Castells von Gozzo, oder der letzte Assassine. Von dem Verfasser des Scipio Cicala. In zwei Bänden.

      Leipzig F A Brockhaus 1834 - 2 Bl., 449, (1) S., 1 Bl. Buchanzeigen u. 2 Bl., 399, (1) S. Moderne Ppbde im Stil der Zeit m. schlichter Rückenvergoldung u. goldgeprägten Rückenschildern (stellenweise etwas braunfleckig, wenige Bl. mit waagerechter Knickspur). Seltene erste Ausgabe des zweiten historischen Romans des Historikers, Publizisten, Dichters und Übersetzers sowie hohen preußischen Beamten (Kurator der Universität Bonn) Ph. J. v. Rehfues (1779 - 1843), der "durch zahlreiche literarische Arbeiten als geistiger Vermittler zwischen Deutschland und Italien sich verdient gemacht hatte" (Rehm). Während seines Italienaufenthaltes 1801 - 1806 hat er, vornehmlich in Rom und Neapel, in Bibliotheken und Archiven intensive historische Studien betrieben und eine große Zahl auch handschriftlicher Quellen ausgewertet, die er für seine drei Romane "Scipio Cicala" (1832), "Die Belagerung des Castells von Gozzo" (1834) und "Die neue Medea" (1836) nutzte.- "Die Belagerung des Castels von Gozzo", für W. Rehm "der weitaus beste Roman" von Rehfues, beruht auf einem historischen Ereignis vom Juli 1551, als Türken unter Sinan Pascha und Turgut Reis die zum maltesischen Archipel gehörige Insel Gozzo/Gozo überfielen und die in das Kastell geflüchteten Bewohner der Insel unter dem Kommandanten Don Galatiano di Sessa zur Verteidigung zwingen. In diesem Roman, so W. Rehm , "erhält man einen starken Eindruck von der eigentümlichen Stimmung, von den tief unmoralischen Vorgängen, wie sie das wilde Renegatentum der spanischen-türkischen Seekriege mit sich brachten, und dies lobt auch Treitschke besonders. Es ist ein Gemälde mit orientalischen Farben, mit bewußter Absicht schildernd die besondere Kultur, die sich aus der Vermischung von Abendland und Morgenland gebildet hat, in der christlicher und mohammedanischer Glaube und Ritus sich verschmelzen und so das entsittlichende Treiben südländischen Priestertums und spanisch-italienischen Mönchstums bewirken".- Goed. VI,396,35,14; Brockhaus Verlagsverzeichns I,303; W. Rehm, Der Werden des Renaissancebildes in der deutschen Dichtung. München, Beck, 1924, S.148 - 150 (Rehfues). 610 gr.

        Oliver Twist; or, the Parish Boy's Progress

      London: Richard Bentley. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE in handsome contemporary calf bindings. With 25 plates by Cruikshank including both the "Fireside" plate and the "Church" plate. "Oliver Twist was originally conceived as a satire on the new poor law of 1834 which herded the destitute and the helpless into harshly run union workhouses, and which was perceived by Dickens as a monstrously unjust and inhumane piece of legislation... Once the scene shifted to London, however, Oliver Twist developed into a unique and compelling blend of a 'realistic' tale about thieves and prostitutes and a melodrama with strong metaphysical overtones. The pathos of little Oliver (the first of many such child figures in Dickens), the farcical comedy of the Bumbles, the sinister fascination of Fagin, the horror of Nancy's murder, and the powerful evocation of London's dark and labyrinthine criminal underworld, all helped to drive Dickens's popularity to new heights" (Oxford DNB). First issue, with the "Fireside" plate and "Boz" on all three titles: "When Bentley decided to publish Oliver in book form before its completion in his periodical, Cruikshank had to complete the last few plates in haste. Dickens did not review them until the eve of publication and objected to the Fireside plate ("Rose Maylie and Oliver" - the final plate in vol. III). Dickens had Cruikshank design a new plate (the Church plate) which retained the same title . This Church plate was not completed in time for incorporation into the early copies of the book, but it replaced the Fireside plate in later copies. Dickens not only objected to the Fireside plate, but also disliked having "Boz" on the title pages. He voiced these objections prior to publication and the plate and title page were changed between November 9 (publication date) and 16" (Smith, Charles Dickens in Original Cloth). The copy, interestingly, also has the "Church" plate bound in at the end of volume III. Provenance: With bookseller's sticker of Walter T. Spencer, noted nineteenth century bookseller who was acquainted with Dickens and other important writers. (See Spencer's memoir, Forty Years in My Bookshop.) London: Richard Bentley, 1838. Octavo, contemporary full calf by William Lewis (binder's sticker), gilt decorated spines in six compartments, red and green leather labels, gilt-ruled boards, gilt dentelles; all edges gilt. With half-title to volume I; bound without volume II half-title and ads. Toning to plates (as often), text generally very clean with only occasional scattered foxing. Almost invisible repairs to spine tops and volume 3 label. An elegant first issue copy in contemporary bindings of one of the more elusive Dickens first editions.

        Plate 71 Monumento Sepolerale antico di marmo nel di cui Vaso Cinerario.

      Paris 1834 - John Wilton-Ely plate 959The watermark that is present is number 93 in John Wilton-Ely on page 1182 and is dated in the mid 1830s Giovanni Battista Piranesi was one of the leading figures in the development of the neoclassical style in the late 18th Century. As architect, archaeologist, artist, designer, collector, and antiquities dealer, he produced a series of etchings and engravings depicting the glories of ancient Rome. These fine prints served as source material for other architects and designers. He was born in Venice on the 4th October 1720. The son of a stone-mason, he was educated as an architect under his maternal uncle Matto Lucchesi and under Carlo Zucchi. In 1740 Piranesi left Venice for Rome, there he studied etching under Giuseppe Vasi. He appears to have had little success in these early years in Rome and as his father was unable to continue his allowance returned to Venice in 1744. He was soon, however, encouraged to return to Rome by Giuseppe Wagner, a successful engraver and publisher of Venice. This time he achieved success, and a constant series of works, illustrating architecture and antiquities, issued from his studio until his death in 1778. His output in etched plates is enormous (about 1000 numbers in all). While he achieved a work of magnitude in pictorial records of Roman monuments of antiquity and of the Renaissance, and gave immense archæological, antiquarian, and topographical value to this work, the artistic quality always predominates. He was fond of peopling his ruins with Callot-like figures, and "like Callot makes great use of the swelling line" (Hind). He had two sons and a daughter, all of whom helped him in his work and after his death carried on his publications in Rome and Paris. They were Francesco (born 1748 or 1756; died 1810), Pietro (who lived till after 1807) and Laura (born 1750). His position in Rome and in Europe after 1760 was a prominent one. He was well-known figure to the wealthy English visitors in Rome and was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1757. Most of his life was passed in Rome, etching, writing, publishing, and directing a workshop in which the restoration and sale of antiques played a considerable part.He was famous for his poetic views of Rome and also his fantastic imaginary interiors. His skills, allied to his deep knowledge of archaeology, provided the substance for his Vedute (Views), a series of 135 etchings of ancient and contemporary Rome, published from 1745 onwards, which established the popular mental image of the city. Vasi.et Ornamenti Antichi was a collection of 110 etchings documenting large sculptural vases, together with other antiquities excavated (and in some cases created) in Italy in the 18th century. The prints were initially separately issued and sold by Piranesi over a period of several years and subsequently collected in two folio volumes, each with its own title page, in 1778. They illustrate a wide range of genuine antiquities, as well as Piranesi's own collections, from utilitarian objects such as cinerary urns, lamps, and sarcophagi to monumental vases. The plates in Vasi often included text by Piranesi with information about where the objects were discovered and their contemporary location, and the prints bore dedications to his patrons, colleagues, visitors and influential people. He believed absolutely in the supremacy of Roman over Greek architecture, an argument he expounded most forcefully in his Della magnificenza ed architettura dei Romani (On the Magnificence of Roman Architecture, 1761). his romanticized views and imaginary interiors had a profound effect on stage designers, painters of capricci such as Hubert Robert, and even writers: William Beckford, the author of the Gothic novel and Vathek . In the 20th century his imaginary interiors have been admired by the Surrealists . Reference: John Wilton-Ely. Giovanni Battista Piranesi: The Complete Etchings.

        A Manual for the Use of Visiters [sic] to the Falls of Niagara: Intended as an Epitome of, and Temporary Substitute for, a Larger and More Extended Work, Relative to this Most Stupendous Wonder of the World.

      Printed for the Author, by Charles Faxon, Buffalo, NY 1834 - 72pp. Light blue original wrappers. Quite likely the first guide about the Falls. Includes sections on Routes to the Falls; Directions to Visiters [sic]; Historical Notices; The Falls (Situation, Latitude, etc.); The Islands, Bridges, Staircases, etc.; Interesting Objects of Visit; Aboriginal Remains; Battle Grounds, Forts, etc. "The first guide-book to Niagara Falls was published in 1834, though for many years the travelers' hand-books and tour-books had contained a good deal relative to the Niagara region, both historical and descriptive. Horatio A. Parsons published a Niagara guide in this year, and claimed it was the first book of the kind. Ingraham's book appeared in July, and was the outcome of studies he had begun in 1833. It was a thoroughly original work, not the least useful feature being a list of 135 works which he had consulted, ranging in date from 1660 to 1833 -- the first bibliography of the Niagara region. In the 'advertisement' of the Niagara 'Manual', dated 'Niagara Falls, July 1, 1834,' Mr. Ingraham says: 'I would have had this little tract printed on better paper, if it could have been procured in this vicinity; but it may add some interest to the book, in the eyes of visitors, to be informed, that the paper on which it is printed, was manufactured at the Falls; and the waters of the Niagara, are intimately blended with its every fibre." Publications of the Buffalo Historical Society Vol. VI, ed. Frank H. Severance, 1903, p. 572. This copy with the inserted postscript facing the title page in which Mr. Ingraham reports the first exploration of the Cave of the Winds on July 15th. Mild chipping to corners and spine ends, small tape mend to spine. A very good+ copy. Scarce. Howes I51. Sabin 34778. ; 18mo [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

All page edges marbled. Pages in good crisp condition with no apparent creasing to corners and generally no tears and splits.

The heaviest are the garden design plates. There is some offsetting but mainly from plates to tissue guards. No sign of any offsetting from text to plates. The majority of the line drawings are clean and bright. . It is essential that potential purchasers look at the numerous extra pictures that are available form us on request. Please bear in mind that these have been compressed for ease of web viewing and are only meant to give a general impression of the excellent condition of this run. The plates are in reality cleaner than appears in the photos as the white balance error of the camera shows some pink tinges which are not present. However you can gauge clearly the extent of foxing. Many plates are clean and we have concentrated on showing a cross section rather than the best so you can gauge a fair representation. For those collectors fortunate enough to have the later volumes (5 - 16) the plates in the first four volumes, whilst being to the same very high standard are slightly less bright and vibrant because the later volumes had more finishing. The quality control on the hand colouring of Paxton Botanical was very high resulting in an excellent degree of consistency which is extremely difficult to achieve. These books were originally retained in a major private collection and have only become available through the collector acquiring a full 16 volume set in matching bindings. The replacement set, reckoned to be one of the best to be offered to the market in recent years are generally in similar condition to the volumes available here.

        GRAY WASH SKETCH OF MEN BUILDING AN IGLOO DURING THE SECOND ROSS EXPEDITION TO THE ARCTIC].

      [Np. ca. ]. 1834 - 5 x 3 1/2 inches. Bright and clean. Mounted on stiff paper. Fine. Matted, 12 1/2 x 9 1/2 inches. A gray wash sketch of three men building an igloo, while another group of three men and one husky dog stand off to the side. In the lower margin of the stiff paper upon which the illustration is mounted, a caption reads: "The Ross Expedition." This drawing is likely from Ross' second expedition, during which he and his crew camped over three consecutive winters from 1830 to 1833. While the illustration is not reproduced as a plate in Ross' official report, NARRATIVE OF A SECOND VOYAGE IN SEARCH OF A NORTH-WEST PASSAGE. (1835), it is similar in style to some of the published views. Ross made ample use of native construction methods, at one point overseeing the construction of a virtual arctic compound, complete with mess hall and officers' quarters, during their final winter on the ice in 1832-33. Though it is possible the drawing was done in the warmth of the expedition's winter quarters, it was likely composed after the expedition's return to Britain. Wash was rarely a favored medium in a climate where the seasonal highs seldom reached ten degrees Fahrenheit. Original art work concerning the early arctic expeditions is superlatively rare.
