      [No place, 14 April 1835].. 8vo. 1 p. with integral address panel.. In French, to Antenor Joly; about her novel, Engelwald "[ ] Please allow me to complete my novel before I see about selling it. I have done some calculations and found out that the courier did not offer me much less than I could ask for somewhere else, without being greedy. However, judging by reasonable standards your figures are somewhat too low. The difference is not so big that I might reject your offer, but it will give us the opportunity to discuss it a little further before we conclude a deal [ ]. So I am going to finish my story and in a few days, I will write to you it is finished, come and see me". - On stationery with her embossed initials.

Silvester Paumgartner (geb. ca. 1763, gest. 1841) galt als der Musikmäzen von Steyr; Schubert war nach 1819 mehrmals bei ihm zu Gast. (Deutsch, Dokumente S. 609 et passim). Paumgartner hatte 1819 das Forellenquintett bei Schubert bestellt und offenbar auch in Einzelheiten, wie etwa in der Besetzung und in der Verwendung der Melodie aus dem Lied "Die Forelle" D 550, angeregt. Über ihn schreibt ein anderer Schubert-Freund, Albert Stadler, in der Allgemeinen musikalischen Zeitung: "Die Kammermusik verehret als ihren Mäcen den k.k.

        Giannetto opera che ottenne dalla Società  fiorentina dell'istruzione elementare il premio promesso all'autore del più bel libro di lettura morale ad uso de' fanciulli

      Tre volumi in 16mo (voll. I e III cm 18; vol. II cm 16,5); il primo ed il terzo volume sono in brossura editoriale stampata ed intonsi con barbe (manca il piatto anteriore del III vol.), mentre il secondo volume è rilegato in mezza pelle dell'epoca con fregi e titolo in oro al dorso, piatti in carta colorata con cornice in oro; pp. XVI, 196 + antiporta incisa, pp. (4), 247, (5) + pp. VII, (1 bianca), 341, (15, di cui 2 bianche). L'antiporta del secondo volume è protetta da velina e rappresenta un fiore di giglio, un ramo di prezzemolo ed uno di cicuta. A parte alcune lievi ingialliture e fioriture sparse (più forti nel secondo volume), ottima copia conservata entro astuccio di cartone marmorizzato e camicie in mezza pelle rossa recanti il titolo dell'opera in oro sui dorsi.RARISSIMA PRIMA EDIZIONE. «Il 23 dicembre del 1835 la "Società  formata in Firenze per la diffusione del metodo di reciproco insegnamento" era chiamata ad assegnare il premio di 1000 lire all'autore di "un'opera originale italiana la quale serva ad un tempo d'esercizio di lettura e d'istruzione morale per i fanciulli". Dei quattro manoscritti pervenuti, due si imposero alla Commissione, l'uno era "diviso in tre parti intitolate Il buon fanciullo, Il buon giovanetto, Il galantuomo", mentre l'altro aveva per titolo Giannetto. Ancora manoscritte e siglate con un motto, le Letture giovanili di Cesare Cantù e il Giannetto di Luigi Alessandro Parravicini si trovavano cosà­, per la prima volta, di fronte: e per mezzo secolo, e piຠoltre ancora, avrebbero continuato a venir avvertiti come due diversi modelli di manualetto popolare, di libro sussidiario per i fanciulli avviati all'alfabetizzazione. Il premio fiorentino era indivisibile, e fu assegnato al Parravicini; un enorme consenso di pubblico, e il succedersi di edizioni sia autorizzate dagli autori sia abusive, corrispose ad entrambe le opere.I moderati della Società  fiorentina dovevano aver percepito nell'implacabile moralismo cattolico di Cantù un'ipoteca autoritaria e conservatrice che Parravicini aveva schivato: il suo richiamo al buon senso quotidiano e il suo innocuo enciclopedismo, scevro di richiami ideologici, gli aprivano ora un credito e un'udienza, che avrebbe a lungo continuato a godere. I due scrittori non erano amici, né tali sarebbero mai diventati, ma avevano in comune la provenienza: entrambi lombardi, milanese il Parravicini, brianzolo il Cantù, erano comaschi d'adozione. Il primo dirigeva la Scuola elementare maggiore di Como sin dal 1826; il secondo aveva insegnato in quel ginnasio quattro anni, dal 1828 al 1832, si era fatto storico della città  e della diocesi, e delle tradizioni lariane doveva restare cultore. Nel 1835 le loro strade si erano ormai definitivamente divise: Parravicini non perdeva occasione per ribadire il suo zelo di pubblico funzionario; Cantù dopo undici mesi di detenzione era stato rimosso dalla cattedra e viveva lavorando per i giornali e i librai» (M. Berengo, Appunti su Luigi Alessandro Parravicini. La metodica austriaca della Restaurazione, in: "Omaggio a Piero Treves", a cura di A. Mastrocinque, Padova 1983, p. 1). L'opera si compone di cinque parti. La prima riguarda l'uomo sia da un punto di vista anatomico che da un punto di vista comportamentale. La seconda parte tratta dei mestieri, delle arti e delle scienze. La terza rigurda la terra da un punto di vista geografico e naturalistico. La quarta riporta esempi quotidiani di virtù ad istruzione dei fanciulli. La quinta e ultima parte, divisa a sua volta in ventisette giornate, narra episodi patriotici e "morali" tratti dalla storia italiana, dai re di Roma a Napoleone Bonaparte. L.A. Parravicini, pedagogista seguace di A. Rosmini e di J. H. Pestalozzi, fu direttore scolastico a Como e a Venezia, dopo un'esperienza come direttore di corsi di metodo nel Canton Ticino, che gli ispirarono un interessante Manuale di pedagogia e di didattica (1842 - '45). La sua fama è tuttavia soprattutto legata al Giannetto, vero e proprio best - seller per ragazzi dell'epoca. Lo stesso Collodi si occupò di modernizzare e migliorare l'opera e nel 1876 diede alle stampe la sua revisione intitolata Giannettino. ICCU, ITICCURAV271788. CLIO, V, p. 3451. D.

        The Crayon Miscellany No. 1 Containing A Tour On The Prairies; The Crayon Miscellany No. 2 Containing Abbotsford and Newstead Abbey and The Crayon Miscellany No. 3 Containing Legends of the Conquest of Spain (3 volumes)

      Philadelphia: Carey, Lea, & Blanchard, 1835. All First Editions . All three volumes are in the publisher's original dark green cloth covered boards with the original, paper labels on the spines of No. 1 and No. 2. and with a meticulously accurate reproduction of the paper label on the spine of No. 3. All three are 12mos measuring 7" by 4 1/4" and are all in very good or better condition. No. 1 is a first edition, first state with the sheets bulking to 9/16" without the ads with the synopsis on page 247 showing: "binger of dawn" and the paper spine label is identified as "Label A" and, the catalog (ads at the rear) is identified as "Catalog A" per BAL 10140. It is in very good condition and contains 274 pages followed by a blank leaf and then by 24 pages of ads by the publisher. There is some scuffing to the boards and there is an early prior owner's name written in both ink and pencil on the first free end page. (The penciled signature is followed by a date of "1835". ) The corners of the boards are turned inward and there are spots of foxing throughout. Only 5,000 copies of the first printing were produced making this title fairly uncommon. This was Irving's first book written entirely in the US following his seventeen year stay in Europe. He was worried that Tour of the Prairies was too simple and not strong enough to stand on its own as a book. In January of 1835 he hit upon the idea of publishing it as the first volume in a multi-volume series he would call The Crayon Miscellany. (Brian Jay Jones: Washington Irving An American Original) In this volume he added an opening announcement (billed as an "Advertisement") with the following statement: "The 'Crayon Miscellany' will appear in the numbers, from time to time, as circumstances may permit' and will contain scenes and sketches of life in America and Europe; together with such other themes, both real and imaginary, as may present themselves to the mind of the Author." No. 2 is a first edition in very good+ condition in the publisher's original green cloth covered boards with the original paper label on the spine with a minor, narrow abrasion approximately 1/2" long. A 12mo measuring 7" tall by 4 1/4" deep with an early (1898) prior owner's name written in ink on the second free end page. 230 pages of text followed by a blank leaf and 36 pages of ads from the publisher and one final blank leaf and the free end sheet. No. 2, was published six weeks after No. 1, on May 30, 1835. Reportedly, only 5,000 copies were printed. The contents are "Irving's fond tribute to the homes of Walter Scott and Lord Byron." (Brian Jay Jones: Washington Irving An American Original.) It was well received by an adoring American public even winning fond praise from Edgar Allan Poe. No. 3 is also a first edition in very good condition with a prior owner's book plate on the front paste down and tape marks on the first free end page and with moderate foxing throughout the preliminaries, ads and end sheets as well as light soiling to the rear board. It contains 276 pages followed by eight pages of ads from the publisher. Per BAL 10144 this copy conforms to "Setting A". Like the previous two volumes, the first printing of this title was limited to 5,000 copies. This is the third and final volume in The Crayon Miscellany. A handsome and complete collection of Irving's Crayon Miscellany. (BAL 10140, 10142 & 10144; Langerfeld/Blackburn p. 33)

        An appeal on the subject of slavery: addressed to the members of the New England and New Hampshire conferences of the Methodist Episcopal Church: Together with a Defence of said Appeal, in which is shown the sin of holding property in man

      Boston: Published by David H. Ela, 1835. FIRST EDITION. IN GOOD ANTIQUARIAN CONDITION. 48 pp. Modern wrappers. Title-page and following leaf with small abrasion on outer margins An important, and extraordinarily early record of the dispute between Abolitionists and their slave-holding brethren within the Methodist Episcopal Church, concerning the ownership of slaves by parishioners and ministers alike. The authors of the work, supported by abundant philosophical, legal, and Biblical references sources, assert that "every American citizen who retains a fellow being in bondage as a piece of PROPERTY, and takes the price of his labor without his consent, is guilty of a crime which cannot be reconciled with the spirit of the Christian religion; and it is the more criminal for a professing Christian or Christian minister to do this, because they thus afford their support to an unjust and violent system of oppressions." Chapters include: "Is the Methodist Episcopal Church as much opposed to Slavery now, as Wesley and the Methodist Preachers were fifty years ago?" (i.e. 1785); "Wesley's Definition of Slavery"; "Wesley's Account of Some Evils of Slavery"; "Wesley defined Sin against God, the same as we do"; "Wesley and Blackstone prove Slave-holding to be a Sin, by a course of reasoning which has been, and never can be, refuted." * REFERENCE: Dumond 19.

        Reports of the Council and Auditors of the Zoological Society of London, read at the Annual General Meeting, April 29, 1835

      Printed by Richard Taylor, London 1835 - Octavo, 26 pp., damage to the top edge, otherwise very good, stitch-sewn as issued. Kangaroos in London. A good early report of the Zoological Society of London which had been founded only nine years earlier in 1826. The report does not merely provide financial accounts but also interesting notes on the Society's gardens, and the menagerie of 220 mammals and 302 birds.Perusing the report shows that the Society was well set up for monkeys and lemurs, and had birds from all over the globe, including the Australian white-crested Cockatoo. There are notes on their breeding program, and an extensive list of acquisitions and donations, notable among them "a new species of Kangaroo and other animals from Australia" from Captain Parry, the polar explorer who had made Port Stephens his home from 1829 to 1834, and a selection of birds from North America presented by "Mr Audubon". Among other additions were a "One-horned Indian Rhinoceros" and three Curassows, hatched at the Menagerie.

        The History, Antiquities, and Topography of the County of Sussex

      Lewes: Baxter, 1835.. First edition. Two volumes expanded to three. 4to. Later nineteenth century half dark green morocco over matching cloth boards, spine with raised bands, gilt lettered to two panels, marbled endpapers, the bookplates of Edward Huth of Wykehurst Place to the front pastedowns. Complete with the standard collation of 2 folding maps, 56 copperplate engravings and 80 wood engravings in the text. The set profusely extra illustrated with 336 18th and 19th century engravings and lithographs comprising 301 black and white full page plates, 5 in colour, 14 double page plates including 8 views by Buck, 4 large folding plates including three of country seats and gardens by Kip, 5 folding maps and plans plus 10 full page and 1 double page and finally 1 original pencil drawing of a church in St. Leonard's. Just a small amount of trivial wear, a lovely set. One of the standard works on the county, covering each hundred and parish and listing the various ancient manor houses, churches and ruins as well as biographies of important figures, here considerably expanded to accommodate the numerous extra illustrations. The set has an impressive Huth provenance - Henry Huth amassed one of the great book collections of any age, later sold at Sotheby's over a number of sales in the early 20th century; his son Edward was also a keen bibliophile and put together a fine collection of books relating to the county.

      London: Ackermann, Weale, and Dolman, 1835-1851. 7 vols. in 2, large 4to, bound in full green and full red morocco, very richly stamped in gold and with onlays in green on the red volume, and the green volume with the Order of the Garter device on both covers; boards bevelled (red volume) or rolled (green volume), backstrips richly gilt, all edges on both volumes deeply gauffred. In virtually flawless condition. Full collations and plate counts as per Fowler (see below). An absolutely astonishing collection of all but one of Pugin?s major works, perhaps his own copies bound for him in unsigned bindings of the very highest quality and with his name stamped at the foot of the backstrip of the red volume. The later bookplate of Samuel Joshua Cooper is pasted in both volumes over an earlier bookplate (perhaps Pugin?s?). The only significant volume not present is his controversial book ?Contrasts?, privately issued in 1836. For detailed descriptions of each volume see Fowler 264, 261, 263, 262, 266, 268, and 272. The Bookpress suggests that the first four works were in fact issued together; perhaps the remaining three also were, as they were certainly reprinted together later by Bohn. Weinreb confirms that in his monumental ?The Arts Applied? (1975).

        Blick auf das Kapuzinerkloster bei Amalfi.

      - Öl auf Leinwand, um 1835, verso Nachlaßstempel. 20,3:30,7 cm. Literatur: I. Eichler, Carl Morgenstern. Unter besonderer Berücksichtigung seiner Schaffensphase von 1826 – 1846. Darmstadt 1976, Abb. 17b, S. 59; Ausst. Katalog: Carl Morgenstern und die Landschaftsmalerei seiner Zeit. Frankfurt am Main, Museum Giersch, 2011, Nr. 71 mit Farbabb. Die bei Eichler abgebildete Studie desselben Motivs zeigt gegenüber unserer einen etwas größeren Landschaftsausschnitt und auch den felsigen Küstenstreifen, der sich unterhalb des Klosters befindet, sowie den langen Treppenpfad, der zum Kloster hinaufführt. Auf unserem Bild, das im ganzen skizzenhafter wirkt, ist von dieser Treppe nur ein kleiner Teil zu sehen, während eine überlieferte Bleistiftzeichnung (Eichler Z 100) einen nahezu identischen Ausschnitt wiedergibt und mit „30. Aug. 1835" datiert ist. Sie ist die Vorzeichnung für ein mehrfach auftauchendes Motiv (1838 und 1840, vgl. op. cit. Ö 120 sowie Abb. 1, S. 78). Zugunsten einer genauen Beachtung der farblichen Erscheinung der Landschaft und um diese auch möglichst getreu einzufangen, hat Morgenstern im vorliegenden Bild die Architektur nur skizzenhaft erfaßt. Daß Morgenstern Amalfi sowie seine nähere Umgebung besonders schätzte, ist bei Eichler (op. cit., S. 78) folgendermaßen beschrieben: „Nach dem Aufenthalt in Capri verbringt der junge Morgenstern mit seinen Malerfreunden einige Studienwochen in der Gegend von Amalfi, ‚was eine der schönsten existierenden Partien ist’. Der Vesuv hingegen scheint den Frankfurter als Motiv nicht sonderlich gereizt zu haben, denn er hatte diesen Vulkan bereits im Juli in Begleitung seiner Malerfreunde erstiegen, dabei jedoch nur den Kraterrand in einer kleinen Faustskizze festgehalten. Nur der schönen Aussicht wegen findet er ihn ‚ungeheuer interessant’. Auch in Paestum hatte er nicht zum Zeichenstift gegriffen, denn: ‚.man bekommt die Sachen gut lithographiert.’. In der Umgegend von Amalfi entsteht dagegen eine ganze Reihe von Zeichnungen, die später als Grundlagen zu Atelierbildern dienen, wie zum Beispiel das ‚Kapuzinerkloster bei Amalfi" (17a und 17b) [.]". Bei den erwähnten Malerfreunden handelt es sich um J.G. Gmelin (1810-1854) und E. Willers (1803-1880). Der Landschaftsmaler Carl Morgenstern entstammte einer Frankfurter Künstlerfamilie, die über fünf Generationen tätig war. Er war Sohn von Johann Friedrich (1777-1844) und Vater von Friedrich Ernst Morgenstern (1853-1919). Neben seiner Lehrzeit beim Vater studierte er die altniederländische Malerei. Während seines Münchner Aufenthaltes 1832-1834 bildete er sich im Umgang mit den Landschaftsmalern C. Rottmann (1797-1850) und Chr. Morgenstern (1805-1867) weiter. 1833-1834 reiste er in die bayerischen und österreichischen Alpen. Seit 1834 hielt er sich in Italien auf, vorwiegend in Rom. Er unternahm Ausflüge ins Albaner- und Sabinergebirge, nach Neapel und dessen Umgebung (im Spätsommer 1835 hielt er sich in der Umgebung von Amalfi auf) sowie nach Sizilien. 1837 kehrte er nach Frankfurt zurück. Weitere Reisen führten ihn 1839 nach Düsseldorf, Holland, Belgien, 1841 nach Frankreich, in die Schweiz und mehrmals nach Italien. Seine italienischen Landschaftsmotive fand Morgenstern in Venedig, Neapel, der Toskana, auf Capri und Sizilien, während Ansichten von Frankfurt und dem Taunus sowie Main- und Rheinlandschaften kennzeichnend für seine Darstellungen aus dem deutschen Raum sind.

        Autograph letter signed, with entomologial content

      Montpellier 1835 - Dugès, Antoine Louis (1797-1838). Autograph letter signed, in French, to an unidentified scientific correspondent. 4pp. N.p., n.dn [ca. 1835]. 191 x 120 mm. Light toning, a few small lacunae due to removal from album, slightly affecting a few words, but very good. From French naturalist and obstetrician Antoine Dugès, co-author (with Henri Milne Edwards) of the section on arachnids in the third edition of Cuvier’s monumental Le règne animal distribué d’après son organization (1836) and author of important works on mites, worms and the osteology and myology of amphibians, as well as the influential Traité de physiologie comparée de l’homme et des animaux (1838), dedicated to Etienne Geoffroy Saint Hilaire. The present letter, written to one of Dugès’s scientific colleague, is entirely devoted to his researches on spiders, and most likely relates to the work he was doing on Cuvier’s Le règne animal: "No one knows better than you everything relating to the study of arachnids, and you will excuse the enthusiasm that motivates the request I would like to make today. I have collected and preserved in alcohol a very large number of spider species from our southern region; I found most of them in the environs of Paris and several species from Italy, Spain and even Africa, but there is one that has until now escaped my search although not rare in the northern regions of France; it is the argyroneta [water spider]. Is it rude, sir, for me to approach you in the hope of a specimen? M. Bérard, a correspondent of the Institute and my colleague at Montpellier’s Faculté de Médecine, who has volunteered to deliver you this letter, would also take care to bring me your gift if you could do this for me without troubling yourself . . . ". . . I venture to send you several specimens and various things that may possibly have not yet been communicated to you. The Filistata bicolor is the most common spider in Montpellier and its surroundings, however the male is rare . . . I send it to you in two states, prepubertal and pubertal . . . the length of the legs and of the mandibles is so different at these two stages that one could doubt their identity without the incontestable proof that I have of it . . ."

        Report of the Speeches Delivered at the Dinner Given to Capt. John Hindmarsh, R.N. on his appointment as Governor of South Australia

      W. Clowes & Sons, London 1835 - Octavo booklet, 44pp., a fine and partially unopened copy preserved in a magnificent polished calf folding case lined with moiré silk by Sangorski. Governor Hindmarsh honoured. Rare: published shortly after the establishment of South Australia as a separate colony in 1834, this pamphlet captures much of the enthusiasm surrounding the appointment of Captain John Hindmarsh as the first Governor. It records speeches delivered in honour of Hindmarsh at a large meeting held in his honour during early September 1835.The meeting of 110 gentlemen was chaired by Colonel Robert Torrens and formed 'a very influential and highly respectable company'. Throughout the proceedings speeches were delivered by John Morphett, Sir Francis Lee and George Fife Angas and others. In addition, letters of effusive congratulations were read to the assembled crowd from George Grote and the Duke of Wellington, both of whom had been supporters of the South Australian Association.Of special interest is a speech by Mr. Higgins, honorary secretary to 'The Society for the Protection and Benefit of the Aborigines of the British Colonies'. Higgins' speech comprises two full pages of small type. After a rambling introduction enriched with classical references he addresses the vital importance of the 'religious improvement' and 'intellectual advancement of the aborigines of the British colonies'. In this regard Higgins asserts 'the enlightened system of colonization to be adopted in South Australia is of itself sufficient to encourage our efforts.'The reception for Captain Hindmarsh is followed by a 14-page refutation by the advocate-general Charles Mann of adverse claims made about South Australia in the British press.

Original printed wrappers, with orthopedic vignette on front covers, atlas uncut. A little foxing, wraqppers worn but very good.First Edition. The very rare text and atlas describing Humbert's attempts at reduction of the hip. Humbert was the first to make progress on a problem unsolved in surgery since antiquity. Taking advantage of the latest information on the anatomy of the hip presented by Dupuytren and Vrolik, Humbert developed manipulative techniques which he claimed succeeded in reducing both congenital and pathological dislocations in brief sessions. While successors such as Pravaz and Gerdy considered that he achieved a transposition and not a true reduction, both acknowledged that his innovative work was the impetus to the successful reductions achieved by Pravaz in the 1840s.Humbert founded the first orthopedic hospital in France in 1817, and invented extension beds and chairs, and an instrument to measure changes produced by spinal curvatures. Inspired by Humbert, Bradford developed the traction-counter traction apparatus which became popular in the United States. A very attractive publication, with elegant lithographs and fancy typography, the Essai et Observations was probably issued in a small edition. Only three copies are listed in NUC, and no copies in Wellcome or Waller. Le Vay 246-47, 513. Valentin 120-21, 205-06.
