        The State and Position of Western Australia; Commonly called the Swan-River Settlement

      London: Simpkin, Marshall, and Co, 1835. Octavo, 143 pp., contemporary notice of the work tipped in, early owner's name on title-page; an excellent copy in full crushed green morocco by Sangorski. First edition, uncommon. Irwin's book was the first significant published account of the Swan River colony, and is a charming and informative work, devised partly as an advertisement for emigration.Frederick Irwin (1788-1860) saw active service in Spain, Portugal, Canada and Ceylon. In 1828, while holding the rank of captain, he assumed command of a detachment of the 63rd Regiment (himself, a fellow officer, and 66 other ranks) which was ordered to provide military protection to the fledgling Swan River settlement. Arriving on the Sulphur in June 1829, Irwin spent four years in the colony before returning to England for a few years. A keen promoter of the new colony, while in London Irwin helped form the Western Australian Association, and it was during this period that the present work was published.The book includes nine appendices of which two are extracts reprinted from the 'W.A. Journal' 1834-1835 regarding Aboriginal matters, including an extraordinary account of two trackers, "Migo" and "Molly-Dobbin", who found a lost child after a long and frustrating search through 22 miles of dunes and thick scrub.This copy does not have the advertisement leaves sometimes seen (and assumed to be present in slightly later issues). Ferguson, 1973.

        Autograph letter signed "Bellini" to Count Rodolphe Apponyi

      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... " Slightly worn and stained; creased at folds and overall; small perforation to upper edge of first leaf; lacking small portion of right edge of second leaf with no loss of text. . 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.

        The Naturalist's Library

      Edinburgh: Lizars, 1835. Complete set of 40 volumes, small octavo, each volume with portrait frontispiece & engraved and printed title-page; numerous attractive steel-engraved handcoloured plates throughout, a fine set in a superb nineteenth-century half calf binding, banded spines with double crimson and green labels. A beautifully bound and fine set of this popular mid nineteenth-century natural history encyclopaedia, including a rich representation of Australasian species. Each volume also features a frontispiece and introduction devoted to the life of an eminent naturalist, with good biographies for example of Sir Joseph Banks and François Péron, as well as John Ray, Thomas Pennant and Thomas Bewick.One volume is entirely devoted to Australian fauna, and includes 30 plates depicting possums, marsupials, kangaroos, native mice, koalas, platypus and the now extinct Tasmanian Tiger. Descriptions and illustrations of other Australian species are scattered throughout the entire work, for example a volume devoted to dogs includes the 'New Holland Dingo' with a striking coloured plate alongside a fine engraving of the skull of the dingo compared to that of a jackal. In particular, the fourteen volumes of the series devoted to birds are well stocked with Australian species, and are especially good on parrots, with splendid illustrations of cockatoos, galahs and lorikeets.Sir William Jardine was born in 1800 and developed a keen interest in natural history during his childhood on Jardine Hall, a magnificent estate in Dumfriesshire. A gifted anatomist, Jardine travelled widely in search of specimens for his private museum, beginning with a three year investigation into the life cycle of British salmon and trout. Further adventures took him throughout continental Europe and later the Caribbean. Through these travels and his ceaseless correspondence with fellow naturalists across the globe, Jardine's museum became one of the significant British private natural history collections of the era, boasting over 6,000 species of birds alone.The Naturalist's Library was an immensely successful publication, and offered the general public a beautiful and informative encyclopaedia of the natural world at an affordable price. Jardine wrote 15 of the volumes himself, and contributed many of the biographical introductions in the series. The work is renowned for the quality of the steel engravings by William Home Lizars, the brother of Jardine's wife Jean.Complete sets of this work are uncommon; Ferguson, for example, records only scattered volumes from the series (see 2314a, 3622b, 2766b, etc.).

        Colonization, particularly in Southern Australia

      T. & W. Boone, London 1835 - Octavo; a very good copy in the original green morocco-grain half cloth and drab papered boards, the joints neatly restored, printed paper label on the spine. Boone's first Australian publication. First and only edition of Boone's first Australian publication. Between 1835 and 1853 Thomas and William Boone would publish an outstanding series of the classic accounts of Australian travel, including those of Mitchell, Grey, Eyre, Hodgkinson, Stokes, Jukes, Leichhardt, Sturt and Read.With the passing of the South Australian Act in 1834, the colonists petitioned for the appointment of Napier as governor. A hero of the French wars, he wrote this work to set out his views on the proposed colony. Finally, in May 1835, he was informed that the terms he proposed on behalf of the colonists were not acceptable to the Company, so he declined the appointment in 1836 to continue his military career.Although Napier prepared the book from the writings of others, it is, like Samuel Sidney's almost two decades later, of interest as an attempt to present eye-witness reports of the first explorers and earliest settlers to a very wide public. Thus, with works such as Napier's, Ogle's on Western Australia, and Sidney's on the "three colonies", we see the seeds of the clichéd and simplistic perception of Australia as an antipodean Arcadia which did so much to colour the way the world at large and - perhaps regrettably - Australians themselves saw their continent for at least another hundred years.

        A treatise on insanity

Original plain wrappers bound in. Very good. First edition. Prichard introduced the term "moral insanity" to define a special type of mental illness, which he defined as "madness consisting in a morbid perversion of the natural feelings, affections, inclinations, temper, habits, moral dispositions and natural impulses without any remarkable disorder or defect in the intellect or knowing and reasoning faculties and particularly without any insane illusion or hallucination" (p. 6). He was the first to focus attention on those mental diseases characterized solely by disturbances of behavior or affect-- what we now call psychopathology. Garrison-Morton 4928. Norman 1747.

Very rare 12-volume set of English primers - published in 1835-36 in Paris as the Infantine Library - intended for the instruction of young children just beginning read: The collection is here wonderfully preserved in its original printed publisher's wrappers. The series brought together several of the most popular works of early 19th-century children's literature, including selections by the leading female writers Margaret King Moore, Countess of Mount Cashell (1772-1835), Eliza Fenwick (1766-1840), and Anna Letitia Barbauld (1743-1825), as well as selections by John Aikin (1747-1822) and Robert Huish (1777-1850). The series commences with two volumes - one for girls and one for boys - using only one-syllable words ("Kate was a good child on the whole"; "Ben was not a good boy"). The third volume allows for two- and three-syllable words, providing hyphens between syllables to help children break words into sounds ("Miss Graves thought that learning French was a ve-ry trou-ble-some thing"). The remaining nine volumes slowly introduce more sophisticated vocabulary and narrative situations, including the basics of poetry. Footnotes are sometimes used to help children resolve figurative language ("a feathered creature" = "a bird"). A child who had advanced to volume 7 would be expected to laugh at Latin language-learning jokes ("Well - and is hic, haec, hoc, more difficult to remember than these?"). By the end of the final volume, the young reader has been prepared for encounters with the 'exotic other,' ever a concern in the growing Empire ("Gipsies," "The Blind Man and his Eighty Camels"). Released by "Truchy's French and English Library," a Parisian firm active in English publishing in the first decades of the nineteenth century, each volume carries a cover price of 50 centimes and lists other available titles on the back wrapper (the works of Maria Edgeworth seem to have been popular). While we have been unable to trace a few texts included in the series (see below), most selections are reprintings of well-known children's literature of the period, and that such a work should have been published in Paris is an interesting indication of the level of piracy in the era before the Anglo-French Copyright Treaty (1851) and the International Copyright Act (1852) established a legal framework for reprinting English texts across the Channel. OCLC locates this rare series only at the Bibliothèque nationale de France. * BnF notice no. FRBNF42003315; Francis Marcoin, Librarie de jeunesse et literature industrielle au XIXe siècle, p. 178.

        Illustrations de Zoologie, our recueil de figures d'animaux peintes d'aprés nature

      Paris: Arthus Bertrand, 1835. Small quarto with 60 handcoloured plates, some scattered foxing of the letterpress (plates largely unaffected), a very good copy in contemporary French gilt decorated quarter calf with marbled boards, expertly rebacked retaining original spine panel. Australian parrots and two Birds of Paradise. Scarce album of natural history studies with 60 finely engraved handcoloured plates prepared by René Primevere Lesson, naturalist aboard the Duperrey French scientific expedition to the Pacific and beyond (1822-1825).The expedition travelled extensively throughout the Pacific, including Tahiti and the Solomons, and stopped at Port Jackson before sailing to the Bay of Islands. Lesson was a careful and lively observer who received little formal education and joined the navy as medical assistant. Here his natural aptitude was recognised and formal training as a surgeon ensued. Lesson was fascinated by natural history from a young age, and relished the many opportunities offered during the voyage of the Coquille.Birds and shells of Australasia and the South Pacific are generously represented in this suite of 60 plates including two parrots and one shell from Australia. A parrot from Tahiti is likewise depicted. Other plates depict shells from Japan, Hawaii, New Guinea and Tahiti. Of special interest are two fine plates depicting New Guinea birds of paradise; indeed, Lesson went on to secure his reputation as a natural history illustrator through his splendid book devoted to this subject, titled Histoire Naturelle des Oiseaux de Paradis et des Epimaques (Paris 1835).This book was printed in 60 parts, each with a handcoloured plate and descriptive letterpress individually dated 1831 to 1835. To these 60 parts are added a preface, appendix and indices and although the book is not paginated, it certainly appears all parts were eventually intended for binding in a single volume. This book predates Lesson's considerably better-known work, being his personal account of the Duperrey expedition titled Voyage autour du Monde (Paris 1839).

        Report from the Select Committee on the Conduct of General Darling, while Governor of New South Wales. With the Minutes of Evidence, and Appendix

      Ordered by the House of Commons to be Printed, London 1835 - Foolscap folio, iv, 168 pp., marginal water-stain affects the last twenty or so leaves, title-page thumbed with small loss of a little letterpress due to past adhesion; a good copy overall in handsome quarter brown calf with gilt label. Wentworth attacks Governor Darling for cronyism, ineptitude and corruption. This report clears former governor Ralph Darling, now promoted to General, of the serious charges brought against him during the impeachment instigated by William Charles Wentworth.The charges concerned several matters, namely the dubious nature of grants of crown land made by Darling, the case of Captain Robert Robinson and the mismanagement of funds for the New South Wales Veteran Companies, and also Darling's attempts to limit the freedom of the public press. The most serious, and controversial, of the charges related to his harsh disciplinary treatment of the two soldiers Sudds and Thompson, which resulted in the death of the former.The Select Committee cleared Darling of wrongdoing, and here publishes their findings along with the testimonies provided during the investigation. With regards to the military punishment the Committee ruled 'the conduct General Darling, with respect to the punishment inflicted upon Sudds and Thompson, was, under the peculiar circumstances of the Colony, especially at that period?entirely free from blame'.Ferguson comments that this report is 'An extremely important source of information with reference to this famous case.'This copy bears the ownership signature of colonial grazier and politician Sir William John Macleay.

        The Deserted Bride; and Other Poems

      8vo. New York: Adlard & Saunders:, 1835. 8vo, original embossed blue cloth, backstrip gilt-lettered, covers gilt-stamped with lyre-like ornament, in later blue cloth chemise and slipcase backed in gilt-lettered blue morocco. 80 pp. Slipcase lightly rubbed, staining of peach-coated endpapers from binder's glue; but a very good copy. First Edition, BAL's Binding A, of the first book by the New York editor and litterateur. Inscribed on front free endpaper: "His Excellency / Martin Van Buren / President of the United States of America / with the kindest regards / and most respectful compliments / of the Author / New York Mirror Office / March 28, 1838." George Pope Morris (1802-1864) was a successful journalist, editor, poet and playwright, but he would be forgotten today had he not penned a sentimental little verse that begins, "Woodman, spare that tree! / Touch not a single bough! In youth it sheltered me, / And I'll protect it now." Like most of Morris's poems it was originally composed as a song lyric. In his terminal "Notes" Morris describes at some length the incident that inspired this work; but it seems likely that this anecdote is intended to distract critics from Thomas Campbell's refrain of about 1805: "Spare, woodman, spare the beechen tree!" The young poet apparently dispatched a goodly number of inscribed presentation copies of his book, but this copy for the President seems to bear a particularly early date. BAL 14355.

        The State and Position of Western Australia; Commonly called the Swan-River Settlement.

      London: Simpkin, Marshall, and Co. 1835. Octavo, 143 pp., contemporary notice of the work tipped in, early owner's name on title-page; an excellent copy in full crushed green morocco by Sangorski. Important early work on Swan River. First edition, uncommon. Irwin's book was the first significant published account of the Swan River colony, and is a charming and informative work, devised partly as an advertisement for emigration.Frederick Irwin (1788-1860) saw active service in Spain, Portugal, Canada and Ceylon. In 1828, while holding the rank of captain, he assumed command of a detachment of the 63rd Regiment (himself, a fellow officer, and 66 other ranks) which was ordered to provide military protection to the fledgling Swan River settlement. Arriving on the Sulphur in June 1829, Irwin spent four years in the colony before returning to England for a few years. A keen promoter of the new colony, while in London Irwin helped form the Western Australian Association, and it was during this period that the present work was published.The book includes nine appendices of which two are extracts reprinted from the 'W.A. Journal' 1834-1835 regarding Aboriginal matters, including an extraordinary account of two trackers, "Migo" and "Molly-Dobbin", who found a lost child after a long and frustrating search through 22 miles of dunes and thick scrub.This copy does not have the advertisement leaves sometimes seen (and assumed to be present in slightly later issues).

        Das Leben Jesu kritisch betrachtet. Erste Ausgabe.

      Tübingen, Osiander 1835/1836.. 2 Bde. gr.8°. XVI, 731, (1); XII, 750, (2) S. Einfache Original-Pappbände d. Zt. (Einbände stärker berieben und bestossen, Besitzerst. a. Titel, Buchblöcke gut). Auflage:0. David Friedrich Strauß (* 27. Januar 1808 in Ludwigsburg; + 8. Februar 1874 ebenda), deutscher Schriftsteller, Philosoph und Theologe. "Das Leben Jesu kritisch bearbeitet" machte Strauss mit einem Schlage zu einem von den berühmtesten und gefürchtetsten in der zeitgenössischen Litteratur. Die epochemachende Bedeutung dieses Werkes beruht auf der grundsätzlichen Entschiedenheit, mit der sein Verfasser den herrschenden Auffassungen der evangelischen Geschichte eine neue entgegenstellte, der Kühnheit und Folgerichtigkeit, der dialektischen Gewandtheit und schriftstellerischen Meisterschaft, womit er seinen Standpunkt an dem Gegenstand seiner Untersuchung durchführte. Hatten Supranaturalisten und Rationalisten bis dahin an dem streng historischen Charakter der biblischen Erzählungen festgehalten und ihr Gegensatz sich darauf beschränkt, daß die Wunderberichte von jenen als solche stehen gelassen, von diesen ins Natürliche umgedeutet wurden; war auch Schleiermacher in der Hauptsache nicht über die rationalistische Exegese, die Hegel'sche Schule, nach dem Vorgang ihres Meisters, nicht über eine unklare Gleichsetzung des Historischen und Speculativen hinausgekommen, und hatte selbst die weitgehendste Kritik höchstens in den Außenwerken der evangelischen Geschichte einzelne sagenhafte Zuthaten anzuerkennen gewagt, so führte St. mit einer in alles Einzelne eingehenden Gründlichkeit den Beweis, daß ein großer Theil der evangelischen Erzählungen nicht aus geschichtlichen Berichten, sondern aus Dichtungen bestehe, und er behauptete dies insbesondere von allen Wundergeschichten, das Hauptwunder der Auferstehung miteingeschlossen, von den Reden Christi im vierten Evangelium und von der ganzen ihm eigenthümlichen Schilderung seiner Person und Geschichte. Jene Dichtungen erklärte er aber nicht für das bewußte Werk bestimmter Personen, sondern für ein Erzeugniß des christlichen Gemeingeistes, für eine mythische Umbildung der Geschichte, bei der sich die religiöse Phantasie, ohne sich dessen bewußt zu sein, von einem doppelten Motiv habe leiten lassen: einerseits vondem Bestreben, den Stifter des Christenthums in immer zunehmendem Maaße zu verherrlichen, andererseits von dem Bedürfniß, in ihm die Erfüllung der messianisch gedeuteten alttestamentlichen Aussprüche und Vorbilder, überhaupt alle die Züge nachzuweisen, aus denen sich das Messiasbild jener Zeit zusammensetzte, und zu denen namentlich auch die Aehnlichkeit mit Moses und seiner Geschichte gehörte. St. hat später selbst anerkannt, daß diese Erklärung des Ungeschichtlichen in den evangelischen Berichten nur theilweise genüge; aber an der Berechtigung seines Angriffs auf ihre Geschichtlichkeit hat er jederzeit entschieden festgehalten. Was er mit diesem kühnen Angriff gewagt hatte, und wie tief er damit in die Ueberzeugungen der Zeit einschnitt, zeigte sich sofort an der Bewegung, die derselbe hervorrief. Kein theologisches Werk, seit den Wolfenbüttler Fragmenten, hat gegen seinen Urheber einen solchen Sturm entfesselt, wie das "Leben Jesu". Die wissenschaftliche Arbeit der protestantischen Theologen drehte sich Jahre lang fast nur um dieses Buch. Hunderte von Entgegnungen jedes Umfangs erschienen, von allen Standpunkten und in allen Tonarten, in der Regel aber mit leidenschaftlicher Gehässigkeit, wurde es bestritten; und wenn St. im Vorwort seines ersten Bandes seine Leser auf die Schlußabhandlung vertröstet hatte, welche den dogmatischen Gehalt des Lebens Jesu als unversehrt nachweisen werde, so konnte diese doch mit ihrem Endergebniß, daß nur die Menschheit, aber kein Einzelner, das Subject der Prädicate sein könne, welche die Kirche dem Gottmenschen beilegt, solchen, denen gerade an der Einzelpersönlichkeit des Gottmenschen alles gelegen war, selbstverständlich nur als ein weiterer schlagender Beweis für die Gefährlichkeit des Kritikers und der Schule, aus der er hervorgegangen war, erscheinen. Die württembergischen Staats- und Kirchenbehörden warteten den Abschluß des Werkes nicht ab, ehe sie über den Verfasser desselben eine Maßregel verhängten, welche in seinen Lebensgang tief eingriff. Alsbald nach dem Erscheinen des 1. Bandes wurde St. seiner Repetentenstelle in Tübingen enthoben und als Professoratsverweser auf ein Schulamt in seiner Vaterstadt versetzt, das weder seinen Fähigkeiten noch seinen Wünschen entsprach. Er hielt es jedoch nicht über ein Jahr darin aus: im Herbst 1836 gab er es auf und verlegte seinen Wohnsitz für sechs Jahre nach Stuttgart. Er wohnte hier allein in einem kleinen Gartenhause innerhalb der Stadt und führte, in seine Arbeiten vergraben, ein zurückgezogenes Gelehrtenleben, in welches neben dem Verkehr mit näheren Freunden nur Kunstgenuß und ab und zu eine kurze Reise einige Abwechslung brachte." Zeller, E., Strauß, David Friedrich in: Allgemeine Deutsche Biographie 36 (1893).

        [TWO AUTOGRAPH LETTERS, SIGNED, FROM WILLIAM P. TILLTON TO WILLIAM HEMPSTEAD, CONCERNING BUSINESS VENTURES]

      Fort Gibson [Indian Territory]. Aug. 15, 1835; July 4, 1836.. [3]pp., each letter with its integral address leaf. Quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Old fold lines. Minor soiling. Near fine. Two manuscript letters from fur trader William P. Tillton to friend and business associate William Hempstead, a prominent St. Louis merchant. Tillton (also spelled Tilton) was head of the Columbia Fur Company, founded in 1822, which was bought out by the American Fur Company in 1827. Little else is known about him. Fort Gibson, on the Arkansas River in eastern Oklahoma, was established in 1824 and was a vital military outpost on the western frontier for the next seventy years. The Fort was the terminus point for the Trail of Tears, and was vital to the resettlement of the Five Civilized Tribes in Indian Territory and relations between the tribes and the U.S. government. In the first letter, dated Aug. 15, 1835, Tillton laments a personal loss, writing that he must be the most "unlucky, miserable poor devil in the world; it appears I am a doomed man....The only favor God ever did me he has taken away from me again - I have lost the best, the kindest, the most affectionate and the most noble of womankind, a loss that can never be repaired. Hempstead you know nothing about it, you have not the most distant idea of such a loss and God grant you never may have." He moves on, however, to business matters, noting that he hopes to make a tidy profit from his time in the Territory: "I have always been doing a fair business here and doubt not at the end of the appointment to show a nett profit of at least $30,000 at this post; it [the appointment] expires in two years....in my opinion I am always afraid things are done too loosely elsewhere than here, I wish I had this post to myself and I would soon be rich...." In his second letter, dated July 4, 1836, Tillton forwards a check for $5,000, pulled from his share of the profits. He indicates that he prefer Hempstead not indicate the transaction in his ledger, as Tillton did not wish the use of the funds known: "I have drawn [the check] from the concern as part of my profits and advised March of the same, telling him I had use for it. I do not wish it placed to my credit on your books because I do not care he should know what I wanted of it. If it is worth bank interest to you for six months, use it; and if not, keep it until called for. Should I die in the mean time, advise my mother, Mary M. Tillton, Pittstown, Maine that you have that amount in your hands subject to her order." Two letters from the frontier, both with integral address leaves marked with postage at Fort Gibson, extremely early letters from Oklahoma.

        Figurenstudie eines knienden Pilgers in Rückenansicht, darunter vermutlich derselbe von vorn in Bettelpose.

      . Bleistift, teils grau laviert, auf Bütten, mittig rechts monogrammiert "F.N., darunter bezeichnet "Roma". 39,5:26 cm.- Verso: Auf einer Treppe stehender und dabei lesender Geistlicher. Bleistift, grau laviert, rechts unten monogrammiert und bezeichnet "FN Roma". Mit kleinen Restaurierungen im ungleichen Büttenrand rechts. Da Nerly 1835 Rom verließ, dürfte vorliegende Figurenstudie in den Jahren davor entstanden sein. Vergleichsliteratur: Ausst. Katalog: Römische Tage - Venezianische Nächte. Friedrich Nerly zum 200. Geburtstag. Hrsg. von W. Morath-Vogel, Bönen 2007, Nr. 64, Farbabb. S. 146.. Nach dem frühen Tod seines Vaters wuchs Nerly - diesen Namen gab er sich erst in Italien - ab 1815 in der Familie seines Hamburger Onkels auf. Nach einigen Jahren wurde er von einem anderen Onkel, dem angeheirateten Maler H.J. Herterich (1772-1852), im Zeichnen unterrichtet und nachfolgend Lehrling in dessen mit M.S. Speckter (1764-1845) gegründeten Steindruckerei, der ersten Steindruckerei in Norddeutschland. Im Hause Speckters lernte er Freiherr K.F. von Rumohr (1785-1843) kennen, von dem er 1823-1827 eine künstlerische und gesellschaftliche Ausbildung auf dessen Gut Rothenhausen bei Lübeck erhielt. Mit Rumohr unternahm er in diesen Jahren auch Reisen, so nach Dänemark und Ende 1827 eine Reise über Weimar, Dresden und München nach Italien, wo sie 1828 ankamen. Nach dem Abschied von Rumohr zog Nerly nach Rom, wo er bis 1835 ansässig war. Von hier aus unternahm er mehrfach Ausflüge nach Olevano, in die Albaner Berge, nach Terracina, Unteritalien und Sizilien. In Rom selbst spielte er eine bedeutende Rolle innerhalb der deutschen Künstlerschaft, so war er beispielsweise Generalissimus der Ponte-Molle-Gesellschaft. Zu seinen engeren Freunden zählten in Italien F. Preller (1804-1878), E. Speckter (1806-1835) und J.C. Reinhart (1761-1847); als Mentor stand ihm J.A. Koch (1768-1839) zur Seite. Nachdem er 1835 Rom mit dem Wunsch verlassen hatte, eigentlich nach Deutschland zurückzukehren, unternahm er eine zwei Jahre währende Reise über Genua und Mailand, wo er Rumohr wiedertraf, nach Venedig, wo er sich schließlich endgültig niederließ und 1840 heiratete. Kurze Aufenthalte in Tirol und Oberitalien, 1850 und 1862 in Deutschland und 1871 ein letzter Aufenthalt in Rom folgten. In Venedig wurde er zum Professor ernannt und Ehrenmitglied der Kunstakademie. Darüber hinaus wurden ihm der Kronenorden und der Adelstitel durch den König von Württemberg und den preußischen König verliehen; für das preußische Königshaus war er zudem als Kunstagent tätig.
