Brien, Limerick, to frontpastedown of volume VII. John Gibson Lockhart (12 July 1794 25 November 1854) was a Scottish writer and editor. He is best known as the author of this work. This biography has been called the second most admirable in the English language, after Boswell's Life of Johnson. In it are published a great number of Scott's letters. Lockhart began contributing to Blackwood's Magazine translations of Spanish ballads, which in 1823 were published separately. In 1818 the young man attracted the notice of Sir Walter Scott, and he married Scott's eldest daughter Sophia in April 1820. Between 1818 and 1825 Lockhart worked indefatigably. In 1819 Peter's Letters to his Kinsfolk appeared, and in 1822 he edited Peter Motteux's edition of Don Quixote, to which he prefixed a life of Cervantes. Four novels followed: Valerius in 1821, Some passages in the Life of Adam Blair, Minister of Gospel at Cross Meikle in 1822, Reginald Dalton in 1823 and Matthew Wald in 1824. But his strength did not lie in novel writing. In 1825 Lockhart accepted the editorship of the Quarterly Review, which had been in the hands of Sir John Taylor Coleridge since William Gifford's resignation in 1824. Condition: In original publisher's cloth bindings with paper spine labels. Externally rubbed, one board detached, one joint cracked with splitting to the cloth along several joints. Loss to paper spine labels. Four hinges held by cords and paper only, four strained. Internally, firmly bound. Bright and generally clean, aside from some light scattered spotting.

        Master Wace, His Chronicle of the Norman Conquest from the Roman de Rou. Translated with Notes and Illustrations by Edgar Taylor

      London: William Pickering, 1837 First edition, one of only twelve large paper copies, of which this is number 9, signed by William Pickering Most of the illustrations are taken from the Bayeux Tapestry. Others are from the illuminated manuscript in the Cambridge University Library of Estoire de Seint Aedward le Rei. The printer is Charles Whittingham of the Chiswick Press, a neighbor and good friend of William Pickering, who produced a number of works for him, including Henry Shaw's Dresses and Decorations of the Middle Ages and Alphabets, Numerals and Devices of the Middle Ages, as well as the Byrne Euclid. Though less well known than these, Wace's Chronicle, produced a decade earlier, is another splendid highlight of the collaboration of Whittingham and Pickering. Large octavo. With thirty-four hand-colored full-page illustrations, plus a great many hand-colored initial letters, head-pieces, tail-pieces throughout. Also with tinted illustrations and medallions, and a double-page engraved map of Normandy Contemporary full red morocco, ruled in gilt on covers. Spine elaborately gilt-tooled in compartments, all edges gilt. Gilt-ruled turn-ins. Some light soiling to covers, otherwise a fine attractive copy, in cloth slipcase and chemise. Wace (c. 1110-after 1174), sometimes called Robert Wace, was a Norman poet, born in Jersey and educated at Caen. Around 1130, he took up ecclesiastical work, possibly as a teacher. Virtually all that is known of his life is from autobiographical references in his works, which include Roman de Brut, a verse history of Britain; and the Roman de Rou, a verse history of the Dukes of Normandy. According to Wace, the Roman de Rou, from which the present work was taken, was commissioned by Henry II or England. A large part of it deals with William the Conqueror and the Norman Conquest. His references to oral tradition in his family hint that he relied not only on documentary evidence but on eyewitness accounts by family members, though any family member who would have been there would have been dead by the time he began his chronicle. The language in which he wrote was the Old Norman dialect of the Norman language, the precursor of Jerriais. Jersey writers consider him the founder of Jersey literature.

        Les Evangiles de Notre Seigneur Jésus-Christ selon St Matthieu, St Marc, St Luc, St Jean, traduction de Le Maistre de Sacy.

      J.-J. DUBOCHET & CIE, PARIS 1837 - J. J. Dubochet & Cie. Paris, 1837. In-4, maroquin chocolat. Plats encadrés de filets à froid. Dos à 4 nerfs. Doublures et gardes de soie moirée blanches. Tranches lisses dorées (reliure de l'époque). Premier tirage, illustré d'un frontispice représentant La Sainte Face et imprimé en couleurs et or, et de très nombreuses vignettes de TH. Fragonard et encadrements qui ornent chaque page du livre. Très bel exemplaire. Le traducteur : Isaac-Louis Le Maistre de Sacy est le frère cadet des premiers reclus de Port-Royal des Champs, Antoine Le Maistre et M. de Séricourt. Chrétien fervent dès son enfance, il n¿a pas eu à se convertir et s¿est naturellement placé sous la direction spirituelle des guides de sa famille, l¿abbé de Saint-Cyran et Antoine Singlin, son continuateur. En 1649, il devient lui-même prêtre, et est choisi comme confesseur des moniales de Port-Royal des Champs. Son sens de la mesure se manifeste aussi bien à l¿occasion des polémiques jansénistes auxquelles il ne prend guère part, que durant les événements de la Fronde, lorsqu¿il calme les ardeurs guerrières des Messieurs prêts à se battre. Serein et discret, il possède le suprême art d¿amener les âmes à se convertir d¿elles-mêmes, comme en témoigne son fameux Entretien avec Pascal venu le rencontrer aux Champs. Emprisonné quelque temps à la Bastille, il meurt en janvier 1684. A ces qualités d¿âme correspondent un génie de l¿écriture et de la traduction, qui en fait l¿un des auteurs essentiels de Port-Royal. S¿il réalise, entre autres ouvrages, d¿intéressantes éditions bilingues, latin-français des pièces de Térence et des fables de Phèdre pour les Petites Ecoles, son ¿uvre maîtresse consiste en un chantier considérable pour l¿époque, à savoir la traduction à partir du grec ancien de la Bible. Pour cela, il répartit le travail au sein de l¿équipe de Port-Royal. Le résultat est un texte fidèle et superbe, « La Bible » dite « de Sacy », rééditée et utilisée jusqu¿à nos jours. Au XVIIEsiècle, sa publication a rencontré de nombreux obstacles, comme tous les livres de Port-Royal soupçonnés de jansénisme. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Los Veteranos de Santiago al Ejercito Restaurador del Peru. @[text begins:] Ilustres guerreros! - Llegó el momento de volar á ser por segunda vez los libertadores del desgraciado Perú.

      (Santiago de Chile), Imprenta de la Independencia, dated 2 September 1837. - Above the caption title is a charming woodcut headpiece (5 x 15 cm.) of cavalrymen in battle. (1 l.) Folio (28 x 18.5 cm.), disbound. Good to very good condition. Early manuscript foliation in ink. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION. The veterans of Chile wish speed and victory to the Chilean soldiers setting off on the expedition to free Peru from the @vil conquistador Andrés Santa Cruz of the Peru-Bolivian Confederation. The Peruvians are pictured plaintively standing on their shores with raised arms, waiting only for the appearance of Chilean ships to rebel. This is one of the few Chilean ephemeral pamphlets that expresses any sympathy for Peru, although it is perhaps less sympathy than Schadenfreude: "Llegó el momento de voltar á ser por segunda vez los libertadores del desgraciado Perú." The leaf includes at the top a charming woodcut of cavalrymen charging into battle.The naval expedition against the Peru-Bolivian Confederation was headed by General Blanco Encalada, who had defeated the Quillota mutineers in June. In Peru his force of 2,800 was not, in fact, greeted with relief by Peruvians. Instead it was surrounded by Marshal Santa Cruz's troops, and Blanco Encalada was forced to sign the Treaty of Paucarpata (November 17, 1837), which the Chilean government promptly repudiated.---- Not located in Briseño.

        Umrisse zu Schiller's Lied von der Glocke nebst Andeutungen von Moritz Retzsch

      Stuttgart and Tbingen - J. G. Cotta'sche Buchhandlung, 1837. Stuttgart and Tbingen - J. G. Cotta'sche Buchhandlung, 1837 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Das Lied von der Glocke (The Song of the Bell) is a poem that the German poet Friedrich Schiller published in 1798. This edition is illustrated with forty-three engraved line drawings by Moritz Retzsch. Das Lied von der Glocke is one of the most famous poems of German literature and with 430 lines also one of the longest. In it, Schiller combines a knowledgeable technical description of a bell founding with points of view and comments on human life, its possibilities and risks. Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller (1759 - 1805) was a German poet, philosopher, historian, and playwright. During the last seventeen years of his life (1788 - 1805), Schiller struck up a productive, if complicated, friendship with already famous and influential Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. They frequently discussed issues concerning aesthetics, and Schiller encouraged Goethe to finish works he left as sketches. This relationship and these discussions led to a period now referred to as Weimar Classicism. They also worked together on Xenien, a collection of short satirical poems in which both Schiller and Goethe challenge opponents to their philosophical vision. Friedrich August Moritz Retzsch (1779 -1857) was a German painter, draughtsman, and etcher. The Cotta publishing house commissioned illustrations for Johann Wolfgang Goethe's Faust, which made him financially independent. Goethe liked his work, and he illustrated works by other famous authors, most notably Friedrich Schiller's Lied von der Glocke, a Shakespeare Gallery, and Brger's Ballads. He also did oil paintings on classical subjects, and portraits. Previous owner's ink inscription dated 1875 to front free endpaper. Condition: In a cloth binding. Externally, generally smart but with slight wear to extremities and marks, in particularto front board. Internally, firmly bound. Bright and plates generally clean but with foxing to pages of text. Overall: VERY GOOD.

        The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1837. London: Chapman and Hall, 1837 Illustrated by Robert Seymour, Robert William Buss, and Hablot Knight Browne (Phiz). First edition of the author's first novel, with a few of the first issue points present and many of the early issue points called for by Hatton and Cleaver, the second plate vignette title page, Phiz plates replacing Buss plates. Finely bound in ¾ maroon Morocco over maroon marble boards, with five raised bands tooled in gilt to the spine, spine compartments rule and decoratively tooled in gilt, spine lettered in gilt, boards ruled in blind, top edge gilt, marbled end papers. Very good, with some light wear and rubbing to the extremities, some toning and light staining to the spine, minor rubbing to the boards, some toning and spotting to the plates, a few light scattered spots to the otherwise clean pages. A bright and fresh copy. Smith I, 3. The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club was originally published serially in twenty numbers, bound in nineteen monthly installments from April 1836 - November 1837. This first edition was published shortly after on November 17, 1837. The project was originally conceived by illustrator Robert Seymour, who envisioned a series of humorous stories about the adventures of amateur Cockney sportsmen. Chapman and Hall employed Dickens to create a cohesive narrative that provided a background story for the illustrations. However, the bold young writer purportedly wrote with little regard to the illustrations, even making suggestions for their alterations at times, much to Seymour's displeasure. After the second installment was completed, Seymour committed suicide and was replaced in the Pickwick project by Robert Buss. However, Dickens found Buss's work unfavorable, and Hablot Knight Browne, who would continue to illustrate many of Dickens' subsequent novels, took over as the Pickwick illustrator. Smith comments on the complicated history of Pickwick's illustration: "The history of the creation of the plates is perhaps as complex as that of the printing of the text, and different states of a plate and different plates for the same subject may vary from one bound copy to another…seldom, in fact, are all of the plates located in copies in the original cloth or rebound ones," which he partially attributes to the lack of a list of illustrations. As a result of this title's complicated publication history, the first issue is so rare and nearly impossible to find that early issues of the first edition are of increased rarity. Indeed, Hatton and Cleaver note that since 1899, "about fifteen copies of the highest merit have been noted either through the sales rooms or in private collections, and, it is a fact, in so far as detailed collations are available, that not one of these fifteen copies combines all the points.". Illus. by Browne, Hablot Knight; Seymour, Robert. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

Erste Ausgabe.- Henrich Steffens (1773 - 1845) wurde in Stavanger (Norwegen) geboren, seine Bildung und Lebensentwicklung war aber von Deutschland geprägt. Er war ein vielseitig begabter Naturforscher, Philosoph und Dichter, einer der engsten Freunde und Anhänger des um zwei Jahre jüngeren Schelling. Steffens gewann Goethes Wohlwollen, war befreundet mit A. W. und Fr. Schlegel, L. Tieck, F. Schleiermacher u.a., studierte und lehrte in Kiel, Jena, Halle, Breslau und Berlin, machte die Befreiungskriege von 1813/14 mit, hat manchen philosophischen Streit und innere und äußere Kämpfe confessionell-religiöser Natur ausgefochten. Erst als "alternder Gelehrte (hat er) auch seiner poetischen Naturanlage Spielraum gegeben; und zwar nach einer Richtung, die durch sein religiöses Innenleben wesentlich mitbestimmt war. Er schrieb eine längere Reihe von Novellen, wie "Die Familie Walseth und Leith" und "Die vier Norweger"; Dichtungen, die vielen Beifall fanden und in denen die Schilderung großer nordischer Naturscenerien sich mit seiner psychologischer Beobachtung und dem Grundton einer tief empfundenen Religiosität auf eigenthümliche Weise verschwisterten." (ADB). Diese erste "Gesamtausgabe" von Steffens Novellen umfaßt wenige Erstdrucke, sonst aber verbesserte Auflagen der vorher einzeln erschienenen Novellen-Zyklen: 1.

        Kopfstudie zum Fresko Die Himmelfahrt Christi' in der Schlosskapelle Hannover

      1837. Öl auf Leinwand, verso bezeichnet: "Schlosskirche Hannover 1837", 38,5 x 33,5 cm. Guter Zustand inkl. Rahmen. In einer Lithographie zum Salon von 1840 zeigt Honore Daumier seine Version einer Himmelfahrt Christi, auch wenn er sie als Reproduktion einer Bildidee eines gewissen 'Brrdhkmann' ausgibt. Hier sehen wir nur drei Bildgegenstände: unten die Speerspitzen der Soldaten, oben die Füße und den Mantel Christi und dazwischen nur die leeren Wolken. Auch wenn man dieses Blatt als Angriff auf die traditionelle Malerei der Akademie gelesen hat, so trifft Daumier gleichzeitig die Probleme bei der Darstellung der Himmelfahrt in der bildenden Kunst genau. Denn eigentlich geht es in diesen Darstellungen weniger um den Vorgang des Aufsteigens, als um die zurückbleibende Leerstelle. Wenn es im Brief des Paulus an die Philipper heißt: "er erniedrigte sich selbst und ward gehorsam bis zum Tode, ja zum Tode am Kreuz. Darum hat ihn auch Gott erhöht und hat ihm einen Namen gegeben, der über alle Namen ist", dann verdeutlicht dies die hierarchische Distanz, die Trennung der Welten. Der Mensch bleibt in seiner Er-niedrigung zurück. Der Blick nach oben, dem Aufsteigenden hinterher, ist ein der Welt abgewandter Blick. Doch was er sieht, ist das Entschwinden und die Leere, die zurückbleibt. In der bildenden Kunst findet sich das Motiv des Aufblickens meist in der Apostelgruppe, die Christus nachschaut, doch Oesterley scheint sich mit seiner Version der Himmelfahrt an einem anderen Typus zu orientieren, der die Trennung weiter verdeutlicht, wenn in ihm Christus nicht nach unten auf die Menschen zurückschaut, sondern selbst nach oben auf das Himmelsreich. Dieses Entschwinden kann im Bild soweit gesteigert werden, dass nur noch die Füße von Christus zu sehen sind. Das Gefühl der Unüberbrückbarkeit, die verschließende Leere wird so noch stärker Thema dieser Bildkonstellation. Oesterley mag die Inspiration für diese Kompositionsform bei Rembrandt erhalten haben, der in seinem Münchner Passionszyklus den in der Renaissance und im Barock seltener dargestellten, nach oben blickenden Christus zeigt. Allerdings reduziert Oesterley den emphatisch verklärten Gesichtsausdruck mit dem geöffneten Mund in Rembrandts Bild zu einem eher gespannt erwartenden, stärker dem Menschsein verbundenen Ausdruck. Was sich in den Augen dieses Christus spiegelt, ist damit sowohl ein bewusstes Verlassen der irdischen Welt, aber auch die Erwartung auf den neuen Platz an der Seite seines Vaters. Die ungeheure Intensität, die Oesterley in diese Reduktion auf den Blick legt, ist tief ergreifend. Die Isolation des Studienkopfes von jeglichem narrativen Beiwerk verstärkt die Emotion. Das Thema des Verlustes mit dem bevorstehenden Neuanfang wird ins Absolute gesteigert. Es scheint, als schimmere der Reflex des göttlichen Lichtes auf dem Gesicht. Dies rührt umso mehr, als Oesterley es durch eine meisterhafte Malkunst versteht, das Gesicht so plastisch, so lebendig auf die Leinwand zu bannen, dass wir die Anwesenheit der Person förmlich zu spüren meinen und so Teil des emotionalen Augenblickes werden. Damit wird das Wunder der Himmelfahrt wieder irdisch und greifbar, wird Christus wieder menschlich und hält so den Kontakt zu den Zurückgebliebenen.
