        Sangene i Festen paa Kenilworth, romantisk Syngestykke i tre Acter.

      Kjøbenhavn (Copenhagen), (1836). Lovely later brown half calf by Anker Kyster, with gilt lines to spine and gilt title-label to front board. Beautiful patterned paper over boards and lovely patterned end-papers. With the book plates of Eiler Høeg and Bøgh to indside of front board. With Eiler Høeg's owner's indscription to the original front free end-paper and a note underneath describing who the presentation-inscription is for. First and last leaves browned and brownspotted. Title-page re-enforced at inner hinge. A charming copy with Andersen's short but warm and exhaustive one-line presentation-inscription to bottom of title-page. A magnificent presentation-copy of the first edition of Andersen's famous operetta, which he based upon Walter Scott's novel and to which the music was composed by the great Weyse. The work contains Andersen's famous tribute-poem to America and is considered one of his best opererettas, in spite of the fact the he himself was not completely satisfied with it. The wonderful presentation-inscription in Andersen's own hand, which merely reads "For/ the Mother" is arguably the shortest known presentation-inscription from him and portrays his extremely close and intimate relationship with his "mother", Signe Læssøe, who was closer to him than anyone else. Signe Læssøe (1781-1870) is remembered today because of her intimate friendship with Andersen, whom she met for the first time in 1828, when he was 23 years old. After she became a widow, the two began a lifelong correspondence, which spans the entire adult life of one of the most famous authors in the world, from his first attempts as a poet until he died an international celebrity.Signe Læssøe was a woman of the enlightened middle class, who opened her heart and home to the young poet who would later become one of the most celebrated writers of all time. Her motherly air and feelings towards Andersen as well as her solid critical sense and high standards of quality meant that she became one of the most important people in Andersen's life. Together with his benefactor, Collin, Signe Læssøe more than any other influenced Andersen's development, both personal and professional, and helped him find the genre of writing for which he would later be world-famous.Andersen himself states in his memoirs that Signe Læssøe, together with Collin, was the person that meant the most to him and to his development as an author. He writes about her as the most loving of "mothers" and and intimate confidante. She was compassionate, involved, and encouraging, and she helped turn Andersen's eye to the beauties of nature and the poetry of life, sculpting the great writer he was to become. She believed in his qualities as a poet and more than any other helped him become who he was - one of the greatest and most compassionate authors in the world. The shortness of the inscription bears witness to their intimate relationship - there was need for no other words than "for the mother", for that was what she was, with all what that holds - the person who listened to him, who gave him advise both personal and professional, who helped him become the person and writer that he was. And had it been signed in his name, all would have been different, for what mother would not know that this was from her child? As such, the present presentation-inscription is probably one of the most intimate Andersen-presentations that we will ever find and one of the most beautiful - in its shortness it says it all, much more than word upon word would be able to, even Andersen's words. _________________________________________________________________The present work written by Andersen was set to music by the renowned composer Weyse and constitutes Weyse's last operetta and contains one of his finest ouvertures. Almost all famous Danish composers have composed music to texts by Andersen, including such international fames as C.E.F. Weyse and Carl Nielsen. Weyse was the grand composer of the generation before Andersen and thus got to know Andersen as a young man. As such, Weyse came to play more the role as a benefactor to the young author. Andersen thus accepted a cooperated between the two based very much upon the conditions of the composer. The result was splendid, namely "Festen paa Kenilworth", which was based upon Walter Scott's novel from 1821. Andersen, however, was never completely satisfied with the result, perhaps because he let Weyse take the lead, and he thus chose only to publish the songs from the play, merely six days after the play premiered. These songs have become very famous and include "Hyrden græsser sine Faar" and the famous tribute-song to America. BFN: 285.

        Sydney - after Mesnard, 1838.

      PANORAMA OF SYDNEY FROM THE RAREST OF ALL FRENCH PACIFIC VOYAGE ACCOUNTS?Vue de Sydney et l?entr?e de la Rivi?re de Paramatta (1ere et 2eme feuille)?. Two lithographs by Thierry and Sabatier after Theodore Mesnard. From the Atlas to the Voyage autour du Monde sur la fregate Venus pendant les anne?es 1836-1839 (plates 63 and 64). Published in Paris, 1842. With original hand colouring. Size (each) approx. 20 x 44 cm.Under the cover of scientific research, the French Restoration rivived the tradition of great discoveries. The expedition under the command of admiral Du Petit-Thouars of the frigate Venus, searched for ports of call or territories to conquer. Mesnard a naval cadet, was the artist on board of the Venus. The French expedition visited Sydney for two weeks in November 1838. The voyage caused a stir in British circles around the world, as it was rumoured that it intended to claim New Zealand as a colony.The view of Sydney is from ta point on the harbour north-east of Pinchgut, shown as a rocky outcrop in centre foreground. At the extreme left is Garden Island and the spire of St James Church appears above Mrs Macquaries Point. Beyond is the entrance to Parramatta River, with Goat Island front right, and the Venus sailing in the foreground.The locals called Pinchgut Mat-te-wan-ye, the Europeans first called it Rock Island. Later hewn down, reconstructed and renamed Fort Denison, but in the imagined world of convict Sydney, always called Pinchgut. It was the location of supposed dark deeds and generator of cheerfully black urban myths. Visions of the remnants of a man called Morgan, strung up on a gibbet and swinging in the breeze, his decayed remains intended to act as an exemple to others. Comdemned to hang for murder, when asked for any last words, he is supposed to have calmly surveyed the scene and remarked ?you have here indeed a beautiful harbour.?Literature: "Sydney Vistas - panoramic views 1788-1995", catalogue to the exhibition at the Focus Gallery, Museum of Sydney (1995), no. 10.

        SKETCHES BY "BOZ," [FIRST AND SECOND SERIES] Illustrative of Every-day Life and Every-day People.

      John Macrone 1837 1836 - First editions. Three volumes. Finely bound by Bayntun in recent full red morocco, with raised bands, gilt borders to covers and titles to spine. Gilt cartouche depicting Dickens in an oval frame to the upper cover and his signature embossed in gilt to the lower cover of each volume. All edges gilt. A little browning to the plates in vol. I, otherwise a fine, clean set in a handsome binding. Twenty-six steel engraved plates by George Cruikshank (sixteen in the first series and ten in the second). Dickens's career as a writer of fiction began in 1833, when as a political journalist, he wrote a series of 'sketches' or observations on society, under the pen name of Boz, to be published in The Monthly Magazine. In 1835, acquaintance and young publisher John Macrone approached Dickens with the idea of publishing his stories in book form, offering £100 for the copyright. As Dickens's income at the time was £382 a year, this was a princely sum, and he approached the project with some enthusiasm, rewriting a number of the previously published stories and adding some new ones, notably 'A Visit to Newgate' and 'The Black Veil'. A further feather in the caps of both author and publisher was securing the services of the much better known George Cruikshank to illustrate the book, which instigated a relationship that was to be mutually fruitful throughout much of Dickens's and Cruikshank's careers. Sketches by Boz was published in 1836, to glowing reviews, helped in no small way by Dickens's own literary and journalistic contacts, and sold smartly, so that a second edition was published within the year, followed by a third in the following year. The book was the catalyst to Dickens's meteoric rise to literary fame that would in due course lead to him being regarded as the foremost writer of the Victorian age. It is likely that 'Sketches' was originally conceived as a three volume work, but that Dickens wanted to include more material than would comfortably fit into a uniform third volume, so it was decided to issue two volumes followed by a separate 'second series' some ten months later. Exact publication numbers are not known, but Macrone was a small establishment, so it is unlikely that each edition consisted of more that a couple of thousand copies.

Thick octavo, period-style half brown calf gilt, original cloth spine label retained, marbled boards. $2500.First edition, octavo issue of this extraordinary account of BackÂ’s journey down the uncharted Great Fish River, with 16 full-page engravings and lithographs produced by Finden and Haghe after drawings by Back himself, and a large folding map, also by Back.“A breathtaking recital of continuous adventure,” George BackÂ’s expedition charted over 1200 miles of new territory and made important observations on the Aurora Borealis, all while working under appalling conditions (Mirsky, 122). The original purpose of the trek was to determine the fate of the second Ross expedition, which had set out in 1829 and was feared lost in the Arctic Ocean. Back, a veteran of the Franklin expeditions, volunteered to lead an overland expedition north along the Great Fish River, which extends from the Rae Strait to the Great Slave Lake in northern Canada, west of HudsonÂ’s Bay. Notified that Ross had returned safely to England, Back was directed to proceed with an expedition of discovery during which he found the river now named for him. “As a literary composition this work may rank higher than any former volume produced by the northern expeditions” (Edinburgh Review). Twelve pages of publisherÂ’s advertisements at rear. Published simultaneously with the scarce quarto large-paper edition of the same year. Arctic Bibliography 851. Staton & Tremaine 1873. Graff 130.

        Cheret, Jules - Quinquina Dubonnet.

      DE BELLE EPOQUE NODIGT UIT VOOR EEN APERATIEFReclame Affiche ?? ?Quinquina Dubonnet?', lithografie ontworpen door Jules Chéret (1836-1932), gedrukt door Chaix te Parijs in 1896. Afmetingen: 125 x 89 cm. Chéret was de eerste die kleurenaffiches maakte, levendige ontwerpen voor cabaret, variété en theater zoals Olympia, Folies Bergères en Moulin Rouge. Later breidde hij zijn werk uit naar het maken van advertenties voor allerlei producten. Hij wordt gezien als de vader van de moderne lithografie en vader van de reclame affiche. Chéret maakte verschillende ontwerpen voor Quinquina Dubonnet, alle met een mooie jonge vrouw en een witte kat. Deze kat is een compliment aan mevrouw Dubonnet, wiens eigen kat in het bedrijfslogo was verwerkt. Hier zien we de jonge vrouw met het glas in haar hand, uitnodigen voor een aperitief. Met aandacht voor beeld in plaats van tekst, bracht Chéret een revolutie teweeg in de manier waarop posters werden vorm-gegeven. Hij meende dat een affiche niet noodzakelijkerwijs een product moest tonen, het was slechts van belang dat het bij de kijker een positieve reactie genereerde. Met zijn grote affiches met afbeeldingen van vrijdenkende dames, zette hij aan tot de emancipatie van de vrouw. Vrouwen werden vóór Chéret meestal afgebeeld als prostituee, of als puritein. Zijn zgn. ?Chrérettes?' waren geen van beide. Het werkte merkbaar bevrijdend voor de vrouwen van Parijs, die nu decolletés mochten dragen en konden roken in het openbaar. Vandaag de dag behoort Chéret tot de meest verzamelde kunstenaars uit de Belle Epoque. Prijs: ?2.450,- (incl. lijst, excl. BTW/VAT).

        Map of the First and Second Anthracite Coal Fields

      Watson's Litho., Philadelphia, Pottsville, Pennsylvania 1836 - Lithographed map, hand-coloured in outline, sectioned and linen-backed at a contemporary date. Sheet size: 47 x 88 1/2 inches. Folds into half calf and period marbled paper covered portfolio binding. Housed in a blue morocco backed box. Provenance: William Rawle (early signature). Very rare, detailed map of coal region in east-central Pennsylvania. Samuel Fisher served as a civil engineer working in the coal region. In 1834, the Pennsylvania Board of Trade commissioned this map, as detailed in a report on the coal trade within Hazard's Register of Pennsylvania : "The Board have long been desirous of procuring a correct map of the Coal Region, and have exerted themselves to secure the talents of a gentleman qualified for that undertaking: and they feel gratified that they are able to annouce to you that such a work is in progress and will soon be completed . [The map] on a scale of 1 5/8 inches to the mile, will take in the Coal Fields of the Schuylkill, Little Schuylkill, Lehigh, Beaver Meadow, Mahony, Lykens Valley and Swatara, covering a space of fifteen miles from North to South and forty miles from East to West; and will lay down each tract with the original patentee, the number of acres, date of survey, and as far as possible the names of the present owners." The actual map in the end would be on a scale of 200 perches to the inch (approx. .625 miles to the inch), and ranging approximately 30 miles north to south and 50 miles east to west. The map depicts the region in central northeastern Pennsylvania, bounded by the Susquehanna river to the west and north, as far south as Pottsville, as far east as the Lehigh River. Individual land owners are named, and coloured lines and symbols depict the coal deposits, as well as the railroads (existing and proposed), coounty and turnpike roads, as well as county and township borders. "This must be one of the earliest maps of this type, and we can find no record of it. Watson's Lithography produced other coal maps during this period, and this is earlier than any that were listed. This is an unusual thematic map showing coal deposits and ownership" (Rumsey). Rumsey 4304.

        Sydney - after Mesnard, 1838.

      PANORAMA OF SYDNEY FROM THE RAREST OF ALL FRENCH PACIFIC VOYAGE ACCOUNTS?Vue de Sydney et l?entrée de la Rivière de Paramatta (1ere et 2eme feuille)?. Two lithographs by Thierry and Sabatier after Theodore Mesnard. From the Atlas to the Voyage autour du Monde sur la fregate Venus pendant les anne?es 1836-1839 (plates 63 and 64). Published in Paris, 1842. With original hand colouring. Size (each) approx. 20 x 44 cm.Under the cover of scientific research, the French Restoration rivived the tradition of great discoveries. The expedition under the command of admiral Du Petit-Thouars of the frigate Venus, searched for ports of call or territories to conquer. Mesnard a naval cadet, was the artist on board of the Venus. The French expedition visited Sydney for two weeks in November 1838. The voyage caused a stir in British circles around the world, as it was rumoured that it intended to claim New Zealand as a colony.The view of Sydney is from ta point on the harbour north-east of Pinchgut, shown as a rocky outcrop in centre foreground. At the extreme left is Garden Island and the spire of St James Church appears above Mrs Macquaries Point. Beyond is the entrance to Parramatta River, with Goat Island front right, and the Venus sailing in the foreground.The locals called Pinchgut Mat-te-wan-ye, the Europeans first called it Rock Island. Later hewn down, reconstructed and renamed Fort Denison, but in the imagined world of convict Sydney, always called Pinchgut. It was the location of supposed dark deeds and generator of cheerfully black urban myths. Visions of the remnants of a man called Morgan, strung up on a gibbet and swinging in the breeze, his decayed remains intended to act as an exemple to others. Comdemned to hang for murder, when asked for any last words, he is supposed to have calmly surveyed the scene and remarked ?you have here indeed a beautiful harbour.?Literature: "Sydney Vistas - panoramic views 1788-1995", catalogue to the exhibition at the Focus Gallery, Museum of Sydney (1995), no. 10. Price (for the pair): ?2.450,-.

        Hauptmomente aus dem Leben Sr. Majestät Franz I. Kaisers von Oesterreich.

      Vienna, Lithographisches Institut, (1833-1836). - Series of 21 lithographs, ca. 700 x 500 mm each. A complete set of this "extremely popular lithographic series" (cf. Telesko, p. 163) which was first announced in September 1831: originally, a total of twenty prints showing "principal moments" from the life of Emperor Franz II (I) were planned, to be issued at monthly or bi-monthly intervals. Even at this point early versions of the first and second plate were available, and the third would be published in October (cf. Wiener Zeitung 214 [29 Sept. 1831], p. 1214). From 1833 onwards, the title "Hauptmomente" was used (instead of the previous "Lebensmomente" or simply "Momente"), demonstrating that the present set was issued after this point. In what must have been a departure from the artists' original plan, the set was completed after Franz's death with two plates showing the Emperor on his death-bed, bidding his family farewell (the 20th leaf) and his burial in the crypt of the Augustinerkirche (the 21st and final leaf). Hoechle, the illustrator, died but months after Emperor Franz, and he is said to have sketched the latter scene on the spot and finished the drawing as one of his very last works. In commemoration, the lithographer Wolf added a portrait of his late colleage at the picture's far right, with his sketching portfolio under his arm. The original watercolours, measuring but a quarter of the lithographs' size, were part of the Imperial Fideikomissbibliothek until the early 20th century and now repose in the Albertina (cf. Huber-Frischeis, p. 472f.). - "Hoechle's suite offers a selection from the principal events in the life of the emperor, a mixture of ceremonial events (crownings), acts of charity, battles, triumphal entries, encounters with other monarchs, and homages by the estates [.] Wolf's series was instrumental in shaping the posthumous public image of the ruler by creating a canonical epic in pictures" (cf. Telesko, p. 191). - Dust- and waterstained, edges and margins limp and frayed, some tears (occasionally touching the caption). Rarely encountered complete with all plates, as here: only three incomplete sets traced in the last decades' auction records. Wurzbach IX, 91. Huber-Frischeis/Knieling/Valenta, Die Privatbibliothek Kaiser Franz' I. von Österreich 1784-1835 (2015), p. 472-483. Telesko, Geschichtsraum Österreich I, p. 163, 191 & passim.

        L'ingénieux hidalgo Don Quichotte de la Manche

      - Dubochet et Cie, Paris 1836 - 1840, In-8 (17,5x25,5cm), 744pp. et 758pp., relié. - Edizione originale tradotto da Louis Viardot e illustrato da Tony Johannot prima estrazione. Due testate stampate su Cina, due frontespizi incisi e 800 miniature grandi in-text. Come spesso, il secondo volume del 1840. Questa funzione è in realtà abbastanza comune nel settore dell'editoria, anche se abbiamo difficoltà a capire come l'editor è stato in grado di mescolare volumi dell'edizione 1836 che del 1840, a meno che 2 piste sono stati stabiliti simultaneamente. Binding semi antico dolore nero. Indietro con false nervi decorati con grassi e magri reti, ruote e testa coda. Titolo e il volume numero dorato. Tutto relativamente fresco, con molto poco foxing, concentrata su alcuni passaggi, tra cui la prefazione. Alcuni fogli ingialliti nel Volume I. Nel prologo Volume I, marrone tracce margini interni di un nastro di carta (segnalibro) che è stato portato via su 3 fogli, da fading. Buona copia, un buon pareggio. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale traduite par Louis Viardot et illustrée par Tony Johannot en premier tirage. Deux frontispices imprimés sur Chine, deux pages de titre gravées, et 800 grandes vignettes in-texte. Comme très souvent, le second volume est de 1840. Cette particularité est en effet assez commune à l'édition, même si on s'explique mal comment l'éditeur a pu mélanger des tomes du tirage de 1836 à celui de 1840, à moins que les 2 tirages furent établis en même temps, ce qui est plus probable (il s'agirait donc du même tirage, mais avec une page de titre de relais). Reliure en demi chagrin noir d'époque. Dos à faux nerfs ornés de filets gras et maigres, roulettes en queue et tête. Titre et tomaison dorés. Ensemble relativement frais, avec très peu de rousseurs, concentrées sur certains passages, notamment la préface. Quelques feuillets plus jaunis dans le tome I. Dans le Prologue au tome I, trace brune en marge interne d'une bande de papier (marque page) qui a été ôtée, sur 3 feuillets, allant s'estompant. Frottements sur les plats. Bon exemplaire, d'un bon tirage. Célèbre illustré romantique ; une des meilleures productions de Johannot, avec le Voyage où il vous plaira et le Roland furieux. Johannot est moins couru que ne l'est Grandville, sans doute parce qu'il est plus typiquement romantique, au sens de Hugo, à la fois doux et sentimental, puis fantasque et morbide jusqu'au grotesque. Il y a plus de mystère et d'effroi chez lui que chez son comparse. "Un des très beaux livres illustrés du XIXe" Vicaire.

        Traité sur le vénin de la vipere sur les poisons Americains sur le laurier-cerise et sur quelques autres poisons végétaux. On y a joint des observations sur la structure primitive du corps animal. Différentes expériences sur la reproduction des nerfs et la description d'un nouveau canal de l'oeil.Florence, (without publisher), 1781. 2 volumes. 4to. With 10 engraved plates. Contemporary half calf, gold-tooled spine.

      Cole library 1836; Garrison, Hist. neurology, pp. 106-107, 124; Sabin 24988. A very good copy of "the starting point of modern investigations of serpent venoms." (Garrison). This work contains many of the outstanding discoveries made by the Italian physiologist and anatomist Felice Fontana (1730-1805), professor at the University of Pisa. It mainly describes experiments on viper venom and other poisons like the poison called ticunas by American Indians, the European cherry laurel tree (Prunus laurocerasus), tobacco oil, etc. Fontana also here for the first time publishes his letter describing "Fontana's canal," an important ophthalmological discovery. The work is also important in the field of neurology, since it contains Fontana's observations on the structure and reproduction of nerves, with the first illustrations ever of nerves as seen with a microscope. Some occasional minor spots, bindings rubbed, both volumes with slightly damaged hinges. Very good set of a very important work on serpent venoms and other poisons.

        An Encyclopaedia of Cottage, Farm, and Villa Architecture and Furniture; . a new edition;

      - London, Longman &c 1836. Stout octavo contemporary green gilt calf (edges a bit rubbed, a small and inoffensive flaw in the back hinge); xx,1138pp, hundreds of wood engraved illustrations and plans. Quite a handsome copy. Probably the fourth edition, and probably much the same as the 'new edition' of 1835, both claiming numerous corrections and re-engraved plates - this refers to the original litho plates that had already disappeared from many copies of the first edition, replaced by wood engravings. Only the first edition had the imprint of Howe in Sydney and Melville in Hobart but nonetheless this book, in all its editions, was the most used architecture book in Australia during the middle of the 19th century.

        Allan le Jeune Déporté à Botany-Bay.

      Paris: Desiree Eymery, 1836. Small octavo, frontispiece, title vignette and three full-page engraved plates; contemporary prize label, a handsome copy in contemporary tree calf. First edition of a scarce French children's story set in Australia about an errant child sent to the convict colony at Botany Bay. The introduction notes the work is one of moral instruction, teaching children valuable lessons in piety, honesty, honour and to love and respect their parents. Although the book is set in Australia, Muir notes the Gallic nature of its description with exotic passages on transportation, kangaroos and cannibals. The finely engraved plates are noteworthy: one depicts the hero, Allan, bound to a tree and struggling to escape as native figures dance around a blazing fire in the distance. Spine ends a little worn with slight loss at the headband.
