        A collection of 24 broadsides and other ephemeral publications.

      Following the achievement of independence from Spain in 1821, El Salvador along with the rest of Central America had a brief flirtation with being part of Mexico, but with the fall of Iturbide and the collapse of the first Mexican empire, El Salvador and the rest of Central America formed a confederation, with Guatemala being the more equal of the supposed five equals.The Confederation itself collapsed as unworkable in 1838 and following the dissolution of it, the political and social history of El Salvador was characterized by a wrenching dynamic of Liberal vs. Conservative forces each wanting to control society and the government. But added to that were the ambitions of its neighbors, especially Guatemala, and occasionally Honduras and even Nicaragua. Then there was the problem of Britain and its citizens' investments in the country and the need to protect those interests. This assemblage provides rare documents on many of the issues and the personalities of the era. Of the 26 publications, we find only 8 to be held in U.S. libraries, mostly at only one library (two being held at two). A full list available and the condition statement below is keyed to it.

        Journal of a Tour through some of the vineyards of Spain & France.

      New York: Charles S. Francis, 1835. Octavo, 166 pp., 2 pp. terminal advertisement for the New York printer; bookplate of Australian wine-maker Max Lake, bound in recent brown cloth. Printed in New York for the fledgling wine-making industry in America. The London edition of this important book is seemingly the rarest of any of the three revolutionary works Busby wrote on wine, but this American edition is almost unknown; Hordern House have only handled one other copy, while the only copy of the book recorded in an Australian collection, in the National Library, was acquired some time after Ferguson completed his monumental biography and indeed apparently after the publication of the Addenda, as it is not listed in either work (but has since been given the Ferguson no. 1894d).Scotsman James Busby (1801-1871) was probably the most important single figure in the early history of the Australian wine industry. Busby's three books on viticulture had an enormous effect on the early wine industry. He had published Treatise on the Culture of the Vine in 1825; it was largely a compilation from European writers, addressed to 'the attention of the higher classes', but it prompted Governor Brisbane to encourage him in practical experimentation. A second work, his 1830 Manual of Plain Directions, was for decades the only really helpful book on the actual method of making wine, and copies of it are commensurably rarer than the preceding book, in our experience, no doubt because it was so much used and consulted.His third book described Busby's four-month tour of Europe, during which he collected four hundred and thirty-seven cuttings from Montpellier Botanical Gardens and one hundred and thirty-three from the Luxembourg Gardens. By January 1833 the vines - which Busby donated to the government - had arrived by convict ship the Camden and were flourishing in the Sydney Botanic Gardens. But when he came back to Sydney from New Zealand in 1840 he could find no trace of his collection. Duplicates had been planted in Busby's vineyard at Kirkton in the Hunter Valley and these were the basis of chardonnay in Australia. Kirkton was taken over by Lindemans in 1914, and is the country's oldest continually producing vineyard.Although Busby's books are now keenly pursued because of their significance to the Australian wine trade, it is important to remember that all three of his books had international interest precisely because of their detailed and practical nature, which set out the basics of wine-making in an accessible fashion. This is particularly true of this, the last of the three, which attempted to draw out rules and practices that could have international application. It was immediately hailed as an important book in Europe, with second and third editions being published in London in 1834 and 1839, but as the present book underscores, it was also quickly taken up in the United States. Very little work has been done on Busby's influence in Europe, let alone in America, but it would be fair to say he had a significant international impact, and did a great deal towards spreading the vigneron gospel to what might be called in this context the New World, away from the traditional heartland of France and Spain. The book has heavy foxing, particularly to title-page and preliminaries, the edges of the paper with some brittleness (the condition of the paper is not unusual for an American-printed book of this date), bound in modern brown library buckram.

        Two important manuscript letters sent to London by a Sydney trader.

      Sydney: 10 December 1834 & 6 April 1835. Two autograph letters, each 250 x 200 mm. on laid paper, old folds. Two most interesting letters from an important Sydney-based merchant, Richard Jones, detailing his work chiefly on trading vessels and whaling voyages, but with much of moment regarding life in the colony. Both of the letters were sent by Jones to Messrs. Birnie & Son: this was the company of "Alexander Birnie of 12 Great St Helen's, the only London merchant and general agent regularly trading to New South Wales in the 1810s" (ADB). Richard Jones (1786-1852) arrived in Sydney on the Mary Ann in 1809, and over the following decade established himself as a merchant: his association with the Riley family fast became something of a monopoly, and Macquarie complained that their company was the colony's "solitary mercantile firm" and a "sordid Rapacious House" (ADB). In the 1820s Jones branched out as a pastoralist, and took up an enormous grant on the Hunter River, while his estate near Penrith not only stretched to dairy, pigs and poultry, but also had a working six-acre vineyard.The first of the letters (dated 10 December 1834) is of note for the description of some dealings between Birnie, Jones and John Dunmore Lang: the latter had only very recently returned from a trip to Britain, bringing with him a group of ministers and a printing press which he used to set up his journal The Colonist: presumably it is the press to which Jones refers in his comment that Lang "arrived here about three weeks ago with his numerous Cargo all well and a valuable acquisition this importation will prove to our community." The letter also mentions what were clearly quite intricate business dealings between Jones and Lang involving "various legal documents", but that "nothing has been done towards the settlement of your claims on him". The remainder of the letter speaks about various captains on whaling voyages (Christie and Curry are named, with reference to their work in New Zealand and Japanese waters).The second of the letters (dated 6 April 1835) is marked "duplicate", although no other copy seems extant. This is a more substantial letter than the former, not least because Jones is able to report the safe return of the whaler Elizabeth (Capt. Curry) from a successful voyage, and also that he has had reports from New Zealand that the Anne (Capt. Christie) is doing well in the waters around the Friendly Isles, although Jones does sound a warning note in his comment that "these voyages are become much more difficult than formerly" and require "great perseverance to insure success". Jones is also able to say that pursuant to his earlier comments, that Dr. Lang has sent a remittance for £250, and promises more. Jones cannot help commenting that "the Doctor is some how or other backward in cash matters". This letter also includes a small reference to the travails of James Birnie which will be "confirmatory of his unfortunate state of mind" (see following). A postscript added on 22 April gives strong news of the success of the Anne and the Renard in New Zealand waters. Some damage (the 1834 letter with insect damage at the original seal, now dormant of course); very good.

        Colonization of South Australia.

      London: Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, Green, and Longman, 1835. Octavo, folding handcoloured frontispiece map; original blue paper boards with grey spine, printed label, spine chipped and hinges weak, but an excellent unsophisticated copy, preserved in a quarter brown morocco box by Aquarius. A fine copy in striking original condition of this important and influential work on South Australian colonisation, one of the earliest books on South Australia and the first book of Australian interest by the important political economist Torrens.Robert Torrens (1780-1864) was a marine officer who served with some distinction during the Napoleonic Wars, and who had a career-long interest in emigration to Australia, and who at one point even angled for an appointment as Governor of New South Wales. He tried to purchase land in the proposed Swan River colony in 1828, but when that fell through turned his attention to promoting South Australia instead. Torrens' book appeared in mid-1835 and the province of South Australia was formally established the following February. A tireless exponent of settlement and colonisation, his scheme was beset by ruinous land speculation and dilatory management, meaning that the colony collapsed in 1841 and had to be rescued with a loan from the British Parliament, metamorphosing into a crown colony the following year.This copy has a set of advertisements dated April 1835, and the bookplate of Sir William Molesworth. He was a British MP and friend of John Stuart Mill, who presided over the select committee on transportation of 1837, known as the Molesworth Committee, and would have had more than a passing interest in Torrens' views on emigration.Loosely inserted in this copy is a letter signed by Robert Torrens to Zachary Macaulay, the abolitionist and influential committee member of the Church Missionary Society, relating to a prospectus he had sent relating to the New Zealand Company. The letter is dated 12 March 1825, and shows that Torrens had hopes of interesting the Church Missionary Society in the project, 'and in affording every assistance and support to the individuals who have for so many years devoted themselves to the social and moral improvement of the natives.' Torrens was one of the most active supporters of the New Zealand Company, but not much is known about how the Company was run, making this an interesting survival.

        Manuscript account sent to William Riley at Raby, near Liverpool, listing stationery purchases and requesting settlement of the account.

      [Sydney]: 1835. Sheet of laid paper, 365 x 223 mm, folded to letter size, stamped at Sydney GPO, Liverpool NSW and Bathurst Post Paid (very early example of pre-paid internal mail stamp). Early manuscript correspondence concerning two well known identities in the colony, neither of whom survived long after this correspondence. William McGarvie (1810-1841), journalist and bookseller, was born in Glasgow, Scotland. He worked briefly on the Glasgow Herald before he followed his brother John to New South Wales, arriving in the Comet in 1828. He immediately took charge of a stationery warehouse run by the famous printer Robert Howe in Lower George Street. In 1831 he and two colleagues from the Sydney Gazette imported a printing press and began publication of the Sydney Herald. Although heavily involved in setting up the Herald, McGarvie's health was never strong, and he was soon compelled to return to Scotland. However, after a brief visit home, he returned to Sydney in 1832, on the return voyage he was in a storm and was drenched in his cabin in the Minerva, this caused permanent damage to his lungs. Back in Sydney he resumed bookselling at the Australian Warehouse, his health still not good, he died in 1841 at the age of 31, having been forced to spend six nights in the bush in wet weather. William Riley (1807-1836) pastoralist and sketcher, was a son of the pioneer pastoralist Alexander Riley who had come to New South Wales as a free settler in 1804, Alexander ran sheep on his property, Raby, near Liverpool, New South Wales, exporting wool to England from 1812 onwards. He was determined to rival John Macarthur's Spanish merinos and between 1827 and 1830 the Riley merinos won every possible gold medal awarded by the New South Wales Agricultural Society. William sketched two of the prize specimens, his drawing titled Portraits of a Prize Ram and Ewe was published in London as a lithograph in 1828 by Dean & Munday.William married Honoria Rose Brooks on 28 February 1833, however he died suddenly on 4 December 1836, the day fixed for the wedding of his wife's sister, Maria, to Lieutenant Zouch. To celebrate the occasion, the groom's friend Lieutenant Waddy fired a decorative cannon which exploded taking off Lieutenant Waddy's hand. Waddy survived but Riley, who witnessed the accident, collapsed and died, thought to have been due to shock. Alexander Riley's property "Raby" is illustrated in Joseph Lycett VIEWS, Plate 7 and is described as "the most fertile character, and is principally devoted to the grazing of fine-woolled sheep" Some wear along old fold lines.

        Colonization of South Australia.

      London: Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, Green and Longman, 1835. Octavo, folding handcoloured frontispiece map, NSW Colonial Secretary stamps to title and a few pages, printed note about the Henry Parkes collection to front pastedown; a very attractive copy in full red morocco by Sangorski, gilt. A fine presentation copy of this important and influential work on South Australian colonisation, one of the earliest books on South Australia and the first book of Australian interest by the important political economist Torrens.Robert Torrens (1780-1864) was a marine officer who served with some distinction during the Napoleonic Wars, and who had a career-long interest in emigration to Australia, and who at one point even angled for an appointment as Governor of New South Wales. He tried to purchase land in the proposed Swan River colony in 1828, but when that fell through turned his attention to promoting South Australia instead.

A tireless exponent of settlement and colonisation, his scheme was beset by ruinous land speculation and dilatory management, meaning that the colony collapsed in 1841 and had to be rescued with a loan from the British Parliament, metamorphosising into a crown colony the following year.This copy has a particularly good association: it was given by Torrens to "Longfield", almost certainly the professor of law at Trinity College Dublin, Mountifort Longfield, an expert in property law and critic of Thomas Malthus. At a later stage the book ended up in the library of the Colonial Secretary of New South Wales and, as a printed label in the front confirms, formed part of the "Collection associated with the name of Sir Henry Parkes"

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

      London: W. Clowes & Sons, 1835. Octavo booklet, 44pp., a fine and partially unopened copy preserved in a magnificent polished calf folding case lined with moiré silk by Sangorski. 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.

The title-page a little dusted, original stitch-marks visible in the gutter.

        NATURAL HISTORY Ð DODO BIRD: ÒDIDUS INEPTUS.Ó

      [Probably Germany circa ] 1835 - Manuscript, pen and ink and watercolor on wove paper (Excellent condition, just few very small spots of discoloration), 32 x 52 cm (20.5 x inches). An exquisitely rendered large-format watercolor of the Dodo Bird of Mauritius, after an image published in 1835 by the eminent zoologist Henri de Blainville. This is a finely executed, large-format watercolor rendering of the Dodo Bird, perhaps the most celebrated of extinct animals. In ornithological style, it depicts the birdÕs head (profile) and one of its feet. It appears to have been derived from a plate that appeared within an important study of the Dodo by the celebrated zoologist Henri de Blainville. The Dodo (Raphus cucullatus, by the Linnaean classification Didus ineptus) was a large, flightless bird endemic to the island of Mauritius, in the Indian Ocean. It was first definitively encountered by Europeans in 1598; however, hunting and the introduction of invasive species to the island resulted in its extinction by 1662. The Dodo, having been about a metre tall and between 11 and 21 kilograms, had long been viewed as a giant, clumsy creature (thus the name ÔineptusÕ), aspects which hastened its extinction. However, recent studies of Dodo remains have suggested that this characterization was perhaps untrue, and that the Dodo was well adapted to its environment before the arrival of Europeans, but like so many creatures, could not adapt to the new dangers with which it was confronted. The present watercolor appears to have been derived from a plate within an important study of the Dodo by the eminent zoologist Henri Marie Ducrotay de Blainville (1777 Ð 1850) in the Nouvelles annales du MusŽum, vol. IV (1835), pp. 1-36 (which is noted in the lower right corner of the present work). It is thought that the present manuscript was likely made in Germany, as it was found with other sketches of a similar style by a German hand. Well-executed, large-format antiquarian manuscript renderings of the Dodo are very rare. References: Cf. Henri de Blainville, Nouvelles annales du MusŽum, vol. IV (1835), pp. 1-3; Hugh Edwin Strickland & Alexander Gordon Melville, The Dodo and its Kindred (Cambridge, 2014), pp. 35-45.

        POESIES NOUVELLES

      Paris: Denain et Delmare, 1835. [4],378pp. Small octavo. Quarter 19th century plum morocco and marbled boards, spine elaborately gilt extra, with crowned initials "A.O.", a.e. marbled. Pictorial title and head-pieces by Porret. Moderate foxing, otherwise very good and crisp, in an attractive Romantic era binding. First edition, ordinary issue. Vicaire and Carteret report that a few copies were printed on variously tinted papers. The second collection of poems by Tastu (1798 - 1885), supplementing her 1826 debut publication that contributed to the bankruptcy of her husband's printing concern. Accompanied by a manuscript draft, in ink, signed, of Tastu's translation of Felicia Hemans's poem "The Graves of a Household," which is printed in this collection under the title "Les Tombeaux d'une Famille." The manuscript (32 lines, on recto and verso of one panel of a folded quarto sheet) bears two revisions, and the full title and identification of the poem as a translation of Hemens's poem. Also present is a one-page a.l.s. from Tastu to "Monsieur Aimé-Martin," dated simply "Dimanche Matin," (11 lines, on recto of one panel of a folded octavo sheet, signed in full, and addressed on the conjugate blank). Although her poetry is now viewed as sentimental, Saint-Beuve, among others, considered her among the leading female poets of her age. Her first poems appeared when she was only fifteen, and attracted the attention of Shelley, who corresponded with her. Her translation of ROBINSON CRUSOE was published the same year. VICAIRE VII:761.

Engraved portrait frontispiece to volume I, folding facsimile document in volume II, Browne's monument as frontispiece to volume III, and a plan of the "green yard" of Norwich Cathedral to volume IV, 4 illustrations to the text. Half-titles bound in. First edition. The "twelve years' labour of love of a Norwich bookseller of gentle blood and good education" (Saintsbury, A History of Elizabethan Literature, p. 338), Wilkin's Browne was described by Southey as "the best edited book in the English language". Wilkin's meticulous collation of manuscripts and early editions, and exhaustive research into Browne's vast correspondence in the British Museum and Bodleian, led Geoffrey Keynes, who was editing the new edition of the works (published 1964) to consider him "the ideal editor for Browne". Far from common, and this - in the words of an earlier bookseller's description, loosely inserted - a "choice set". [Attributes: First Edition]

        Sketches in Portugal, during the Civil War of 1834 . with Observations on the Present and Future State of Portugal

      James Cochrane and Co, London 1835 - First edition. Hand-colored aquatint frontispiece by J. Clark after Alexander, engraved map by J. & C. Walker, and EXTRA-ILLUSTRATED with a loosely inserted 1 1/2 pp Autograph Letter Signed of Admiral G.R. Sartorius to Captain William Nugent Glascock, April 6, 1833, concerning his dealings with "the Emperor." xvi, 328 pp. Half-title. 8vo. "War of the Two-Brothers," with a contemporary letter of Admiral Sartorius. First edition of this lively first-hand account of events in Portugal in 1834 during the so-called "War of the Two-Brothers." The author James Alexander is perhaps best known nowadays as having been the driving force behind the erection of Cleopatra's Needle on the Embankment in London. The accompanying letter was written by the British Admiral George Rose Sartorius (1790-1885) who had been engaged by ex-Emperor of Brazil Dom Pedro to command the Portuguese regency fleet against his brother Dom Miguel in the struggle for the Portuguese throne which followed the death of their father King João VI in 1826. Admiral Sartorius "gained some marked successes over the usurper's forces. His difficulties were, however, very great: there was factious opposition from the Portuguese leaders; and promised supplies were not forthcoming, and his men were consequently mutinous or deserted at the earliest opportunity. He spent much of his own money keeping them together, and he threatened to carry off the fleet as a pledge for repayment. Dom Pedro sent two British officers on board the flagship with authority, one to arrest Sartorius and bring him on shore, the other to take command of the squadron. Sartorius captured both of them as soon as they appeared on board and temporarily conciliated his men. Such a situation, however, could not last; and without regret, in June 1833, Sartorius handed over his disagreeable command to Captain Charles Napier, who, warned by his predecessor's experience, refused to stir until the money payment was secured" (ODNB). Sartorius' reputation was seriously marred by the episode-- he was struck from the lists of the British navy for a time--but it was eventually recovered and he was knighted in 1841. James Alexander was clearly aware of some of the problems which faced Sartorius and was sympathetic; on page 181 of the present work he writes, "It is to be hoped that the strong claims of Admiral Sartorius to the gratitude of the Portuguese will not be overlooked." In the present letter, which concerns a transfer of documents and letters and makes mention of "the Emperor," Sartorius expresses his anxiety about his reputation to Commander William Glascock of HMS Oresetes, who was in charge of a squadron that had been sent to the Douro to protect British interests during the conflict. "I do not care what these People may think of me but I am not equally indifferent to the value of a Fair Name amongst one's own Countrymen." Provenance: H. De Saurmarez (signature); G.R. Delaforce (signature) Original cloth-backed boards, paper label to spine.

        [TWO MANUSCRIPT LETTERS, FROM BENJAMIN WRIGHT TO AN UNKNOWN RECIPIENT, DISCUSSING THE RESULTS OF SURVEYS IN PREPARATION FOR THE FIRST RAILROAD IN CUBA]

      New York, 1835. [6]pp. plus blank integral leaf; [4]pp. Bifolium. Minor toning and offsetting, old fold lines. Minor worming and government stamp on final page of second document. Very good. Two letters, likely in a secretarial hand, translated from the English originals, detailing Engineer Benjamin H. Wright's findings during his land survey in Cuba in 1834. Civil engineer Benjamin Wright, who gained notoriety from his construction of the Erie Canal, was the first engineer contracted to begin work on Cuba's premiere railroad. He was unable to travel to Cuba personally, putting the practical work into the hands of German- American engineer Alfred Cruger, with his son Benjamin H. Wright assisting. The younger Wright travelled to Cuba in 1834, where he performed surveys of the proposed land. However, Cruger and Wright soon clashed, resulting in Wright's resignation from the project. The first document describes his survey of the roads in Havana, with suggestions for effective and cost efficient repairs, and consideration for issues like water drain off in preparation for laying down the railroad tracks. He also discusses the pros and cons of the innovative Macadam Method, a relatively new type of road construction invented by John Loudon McAdam in 1820. The second letter was written just after his resignation from the project and savors of bitterness in his opinions about the direction of the project. An interesting and personal account of the early stages of Cuba's first railroad.

Ebd. fachmännisch restauriert. - In wunderbaren japanisierenden Goldbrokatpapier des 19. Jhr. gebunden, mit RSchildchen. - Pückler-Muskau, (1785 - 1871), einem alten schlesischen Adelsgeschlecht entstammend und Sohn eines kursächsischen Geheimrats, besuchte das herrnhutische Institut in Uhyst bei Bautzen, dann das Pädagogium in Halle, studierte seit 1801 in Leipzig Rechtswissenschaft und trat 1803 in Dresden als Leutnant in die Gardes du Corps ein. 1804 quittierte er mit dem Rang eines Rittmeisters den Dienst, begab sich, meist zu Fuß, auf eine Reise durch die Schweiz, Frankreich und Italien (Jugend-Wanderungen, 1835), kehrte 1810 zurück und wurde 1811 durch den Tod seines Vaters Besitzer der Standesherrschaft Muskau. Bei Beginn des Feldzugs von 1813 trat P. als Major in russische Dienste, begleitete dann als Adjutant den Herzog von Sachsen-Weimar, wurde Oberstleutnant und Militärgouverneur von Brügge. Nach dem Friedensschluß bereiste er England und lebte danach abwechselnd in Berlin (er hatte dort Kontakt zu literarischen Kreisen und war u.a. mit Rahel und Karl August Varnhagen von Ense, E.T.A. Hoffmann, Heinrich Heine und Bettine von Arnim befreundet), Dresden und Muskau, wo er seit 1815 nach englischem Vorbild eine Parklandschaft anlegen ließ (1808-45 war sein Jugendfreund Leopold Schefer dort Generalbevollmächtigter). 1817 heiratete er die geschiedene Lucie Reichsgräfin von Pappenheim, Tochter des preuß. Staatskanzlers Hardenberg. 1822 wurde Pückler-Muskau, der durch die Einverleibung der Lausitz in den preuß. Staat viele Privilegien verloren hatte, in den Fürstenstand erhoben. 1826 ließ er sich pro forma von seiner Frau scheiden und ging nach England, um durch eine Heirat mit einer reichen Erbin die wegen der ererbten Schuldenlast, der laufenden Kosten für die Parkgestaltung in Muskau und seines exzentrischen Lebensstils zerrütteten Finanzen zu sanieren. Dieser Plan scheiterte. Während seiner Reisen sandte er an seine Frau 48 Briefe, die sie ohne sein Wissen an Rahel und Karl August Varnhagen von Ense weitergab, die diese zur Veröffentlichung vorbereiteten. Die anonym erschienenen Briefe eines Verstorbenen. Ein fragmentarisches Tagebuch aus England, Wales, Irland und Frankreich, geschrieben in den Jahren 1828 und 1829 (4 Tle., 1830-32, Neuausg. 2 Bde., 1991), Beobachtungen der eigenen Psyche sowie freimütige Sitten- und Charakterschilderungen von Personen aus den höchsten Kreisen, erwiesen sich als ungeheurer Erfolg. Sie wurden zu einem der meistgelesenen Bücher des 19. Jahrhunderts… In seinen Andeutungen über Landschaftsgärtnerei (1834, Neuausg. 1988) gibt Pückler-Muskau Richtlinien und Hinweise für die Gestaltung von Gärten und Parkanlagen; als Modell führt er den in Muskau angelegten Park vor, wo er das Prinzip anwandte, die umgebende Landschaft in die Anlagen hineinzuziehen. Vorbild war die englische Gartenkultur (u.a. William Kent, Lancelot Brown), die ihm aus eigener Anschauung bekannt war … 1835 fuhr Pückler-Muskau nach Algerien, besuchte Tunis, reiste über Malta nach Griechenland (1836), hielt sich 1837 bei Mehemed Ali in Ägypten auf, unternahm eine Nilexpedition, bereiste 1838 den Vorderen Orient und Kleinasien und trat 1839 von Smyrna aus die Heimreise an. Aufsehen erregte seine Ankunft 1840 in Muskau mit der jungen äthiopischen Sklavin und Geliebten Machbuba, die jedoch nach einigen Wochen starb. Die Reisen schlugen sich literarisch in Semilasso in Afrika (5 Bde., 1836), Südöstlicher Bildersaal (3 Bde., 1840/41, Neuausg. (2)1981) und Aus Mehemed Ali`s Reich (3 Bde., 1844, Neuausg. (2)1988) nieder. 1845 verkaufte er die Herrschaft Muskau und zog sich mit seiner geschiedenen Frau Lucie auf das väterliche Erbgut Branitz bei Cottbus zurück, wo er im folgenden Jahr erneut einen Park zu schaffen begann ... Pückler-Muskau, Offizier und Dandy, Abenteurer und Frauenheld, war der beliebteste Reiseschriftsteller seiner Zeit und eine überragende Persönlichkeit in der Landschaftsgestaltung. Ein Teil der Jungdeutschen Schriftsteller war fasziniert von seinen liberalen Ansichten, der andererseits aristokratische Attitüden und Anschauungen durchaus nicht unterdrückte.
