        proper for Garden Seats, Summer Houses, Hermitages, Cottages, &c. on 25 Plates. 25 gest. Tafeln (inkl. Titel), meist mit etwas Aquatinta. London, Printed for I. & J. Taylor, at the Architectural Library Holborn, (um 1794). Gr.-8vo. (24,5 x 15,5 cm). Kräftiger hellblauer Orig.-Umschlag.

      . . Erste Ausgabe (eine weitere Ausgabe erschien 1838). - Seltene durchweg gestochene Publikation mit Entwürfen für grotesk-rustikale Gartenmöbel. Ein Vorläufer dieses Werkes war die "Grotesque architecture, or rural amusements" (EA 1767) des englischen Architekten William Wright, in dem jedoch vor allem Gartenhäuser u. -gebäude vorgestellt werden. Ihm wurde dieses Werk deshalb auch verschiedentlich zugeschrieben, vor allem da zeitgleich eine neue Ausgabe seines Werkes erschienen ist. - "There is a great consistency about the style of all these pieces. All have a delicate and ordered rusticity - what has been descibed as a 'regular twiginess'. All of the wooden framing elements are made from what appear to be thin, untrimmed branches. The branches of some pieces are nailed together, but more often they are lashed together with rope. Many of the chair and settee backs are 'woven' out of one or two unnaturally long branches." (Heckscher). - Auf Grund dieser fragilen Konstruktion sind Originalmöbel der Zeit sehr selten, was die Bedeutung des vorliegenden Werkes als zeitgenössisches Dokument wesentlich erhöht. - Unter den Darstellungen finden sich Stühle (14 Abb. auf 7 Taf.), "Stools" (zweisitzige Bänke; 4 Abb. auf 2 Taf.), Bänke (4 Abb. auf 4 Taf.), Tische (3 Abb. auf 3 Taf.), "Bason Stands" (Schalenständer; 2 Abb. auf 1 Taf.), Spiegelrahmen (6 Abb. auf 3 Taf.), Kaminumrahmungen (3 Abb. auf 3 Taf.). Die anderen Tafeln bilden das Frontispiz mit Titel sowie eine ebenfalls als Frontispiz bezeichnete Darstellung eines Torrahmens. - Unbeschnittenes Exemplar im originalen Umschlag. - Angebunden: A catalogue of modern books on architecture, theoretical, practical, and ornamental. London, I. & J. Taylor, [1794]. 8vo. (Ca. 19 x 14 cm). 16 S. Unaufgeschnitten. - Auf Grund dieses im originalen Zustand beigebundenen Kataloges, der Mitte bis Ende 1794 erschienen ist, läßt sich die Datierung für ca. 1794 festlegen. Cat. British Architectural Library 3932 (nur 22,6 cm hoch) u. 3260 ("catalogue"). - UCBA S. 901. - Kat. Ornamentstichslg. Berlin 3429. - M. Heckscher: Eighteenth-Century Rustic Furniture Designs. In: Furniture History XI, 1975, S. 59-65. - Nicht in den Weinreb cat. 1-25. - Tadellos erhalten.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("vNiembsch").

      Wien, 5. X. 1838.. 1 S. 4to.. Kondolenzschreiben an den namentlich nicht genannten Johann Georg von Cotta (1796-1863): "Nach einem langen Irrlauf durch verschiedene Bezirke Wiens ist Ihr geehrter Brief endlich mir zugekommen. Eine Verspätung, welche mir um so bedauerlicher ist, als der Inhalt Ihres Schreibens mir die Pflicht ungesäumter Beantwortung auferlegt. Nichts von Trost. Die Lücke, die durch den Tod eines geliebten Menschen in das Leben der Seinigen gerissen wird, läßt sich nicht mit Worten und Gedanken ausfüllen. Ein solcher Verlust ist der einer in sich einzigen, unersetzlichen Realität, und nie zu verschmerzen. Wie Ihnen auch alle übrige Freude des Lebens gedeihen mag, verehrter Freund, durch diese Lücke wird es immer rauh und kalt auf Sie hereinwehen, bis Sie selbst im Tode erkalten. Wohl haben Sie das Recht mein Mitgefühl zu fordern, und es ist Ihnen dieses bereits in vollem Maße zugefallen, als ich die traurige Kunde aus der allgemeinen Zeitung ersehen. Ich habe Ihre Verewigte gekannt und hatte das Glück, von ihr manches Zeichen freundlicher Theilnahme zu empfangen. Die kindliche Güte dieser verehrungswürdigen Frau hat einen bleibenden Eindruck in mir zurückgelassen; sie sprach aus jedem Zuge ihres Gesichtes und alle ihre Worte waren davon beseelt. Die kindliche Güte war gewiß noch auf das Antlitz der Leiche herausgetreten, als die letzte stille Bitte, von Ihnen und Ihren Kindern nie vergessen zu werden. Ich bedaure Sie und diese von ganzem Herzen. Daß Sie in Ihrem großen und gerechten Schmerze zu mir gekommen um ein Wort der Theilnahme, hat mich innig erfreut und neuerdings überzeugt, daß zwischen uns eine nähere und höhere Beziehung stattfinden soll als diejenige, in der wir uns letzter Zeit nicht verständigt haben. Das läßt mich unsere kleinen untergeordneten Differenzen um so mehr beklagen, aber auch um so leichter vergessen [...]". - Die Verso-Seite mit einem kl. zeitgen. Vermerk in Bleistift: "I. N. 4685 A[llgemeine] Z[eitung] [...] v. 3. Spt. 1838 S. 1872 steht die Anzeige von dem am 24. Aug. erfolgten Ableben der Frau v. [Name unlesbar]". - Lenau hatte sich im August 1831 erstmals in Schwaben aufgehalten, war dort in Kontakt mit den Dichtern der Schwäbischen Schule wie Gustav Schwab, Ludwig Uhland, Justinus Kerner, Alexander Gf. v. Württemberg und Carl Mayer gekommen und hatte seinen ersten Vertrag mit dem Stuttgarter Verlag Cotta abgeschlossen; schon im Jahr darauf erschien dort auch seine erste Gedichtsammlung. - Im Briefband der histor.-krit. Ausgabe (s. u.) wird die Überlieferung wie folgt beschrieben: "[...] 1923 im Besitz von Martin Wasservogel, Berlin, danach verschollen. Recherchen nach dem Verbleib der Handschrift verliefen ergebnislos. Die Berliner Adreßbücher verzeichnen für die Jahre 1918 bis 1933 mehrere Träger des Namens Martin Wasservogel [...]" (Bd. VI. 2, S. 78f.). - Abgedr. in: Nikolaus Lenau. Werke und Briefe. Historisch-kritische Gesamtausgabe. Hg. im Auftr. der Internationalen Lenau-Gesellschaft. Bd. VI.1: Briefe 1838-1847. Textteil. Wien, ÖBV und Klett Cotta, 1990, Br. Nr. 298, S. 60f. Bd. VI. 2: Kommentar. Ebd., 1992.

H. eine Uibersetzung für den Holzschnitt, das ist richtig, und die kosten Geld, handelt sich's aber um Kupferstiche so sind meine Cartone in Weimar (und werden zu haben sein, bis auf einen der sehr leicht herzustellen ist[)], es fällt also diese Ausgabe weg.

        Map of the United States Territory of Oregon West of the Rocky Mountains. Exhibiting the various Trading Depots or Forts occupied by the British Hudson Bay Company connected with the Western and northwestern Fur Trade

      Washington, D.C.: U.S. Government., Ca. 1838.. Washington, D.C.: U.S. Government.. Ca. 1838.. Black and white engraved map, 17 1/2 x 20 5/8 inches (44 x 52.5 cm) on sheet 18 3/4 x 22 inches, folded as issued. Scarcely visible foxing in upper margin and upper left of image, but overall fine condition. A significant map in the history of the Pacific Northwest and the United States, which first appeared with the report of Senator Linn on a Bill to authorise the President to occupy the Oregon Territory, and was subsequently published in several other government reports (this marked "S. Doc. No. 470, 25 Con. 2 S" at upper right which was the Linn Report, but here separated from whatever report it was published in). It was intended to "awaken public interest in an American occupation of the vast area then known as Oregon Territory" (Wheat: Mapping the Trans-Mississippi West #434). It was based on the Arrowsmith landmark 1834 map of "British North America". Washington Hood was a Captain in the U.S Corps of Topographical Engineers, working under the direction of Colonel J.J. Abert. A most handsome map, of particular interest given its use in association with the promulgation of the doctrine of "Manifest Destiny," a phrase which first made print in 1845. .

        A LA MAGNANIMA NACION MEXICANA

      [Arizpe, Sonora: Imprenta del Gobierno del Estado, 1838].. Broadsheet, 8 1/2 x 12 inches. Minute wear to edges. Near fine. An important Mexican political broadsheet and an early Sonora imprint. Of particular note is the juxtaposition of Santa Anna's return from Washington following his capture by Sam Houston with the events of Tacubaya that began the so-called "Pastry War." Tacubaya, a small section of Mexico City, was home to a French pastry chef who complained to French authorities that some Mexican officers had damaged his shop. Other foreign nationals soon issued similar complaints, prompting the French government to send its fleet to Veracruz in the wake of Mexico's failure to provide redress. The year-long conflicted became known as the "Pastry War," and Santa Anna led the Mexican counter-effort. He re- established himself as a national hero through his bravery, even losing a leg in the process. The document reflects the mildly insurgent tone of the newly appointed Sonorese governor, Gen. Jose Urrea, and expresses Sonora's increasing hesitancy to follow the imperialist tendencies of the federal government. At this point Arizona was part of Sonora. Quite rare. OCLC locates only two copies. OCLC 23032403.

        Wat_Che_Mon_Ne, An Ioway Chief

      Philadelphia: F.W. Greenough, 1838. unbound. very good. J.T. Bowen. Portrait. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Page measures 19.25" x 13.75". Beautiful portrait from the folio edition of McKenney and Hall's "History of the Indian Tribes of North America". As Superintendent of the Indian Trade Bureau, Thomas McKenney wanted to document the rapidly disappearing culture of the American natives. He activated the project, sponsored by the War Department, by commissioning writer James Hall and Charles Bird King, a renowned American portraitist. King painted the prominent Indians while they visited Washington D.C. as treaty delegates. Most of the original oil paintings were destroyed by fire in the Smithsonian Museum in 1865. These lithographs, published 1842-58, are all that remain and are still hailed as one of the best visual records of influential Native Americans of the nineteenth century. Wat-Che-Mon-Ne, also known as the Orator, was known for his peacemaking between warring tribes. Overall toning and offsetting. Slight tape residue along top edge and light scattered staining. One piece from our collection of Native American portraits.

        Pathological Anatomy. Illustrations of the Elementary Forms of Disease

      London: Printed for the Author, and Published by Longman, Orme, Brown, Green and Longman, 1838. First edition in book form, folio, [218]pp., 48 fine hand-coloured lithographed plates, drawn by Robert Carswell, old faint stamp to title, minor tear to title and to margins of several leaves, some slight spotting and dust-soiling but overall a very good copy, recent half calf in period style, spine gilt with morocco title label. "Carswell... studied morbid anatomy in Paris under Louis. He was commissioned by University College, London, to prepare a collection of pathological drawings, and in about three years (1828-31) he completed a series of 2,000 water-colour drawings of diseased structures, which is still preserved at the College, where he was appointed professor of anatomy. The plates for his great work on pathological anatomy were furnished from his own drawings and put upon the stone by himself. These illustrations have, for artistic merit and for fidelity, never been surpassed, while the matter represents the highest point which the science of morbid anatomy had reached before the introduction of the microscope."—Osler. The work was originally issued in 12 fascicules between January 1833 and January 1838, and it was then issued in book form, in an edition which probably did not exceed 300 copies. Heirs of Hippocrates 1501; Garrison-Morton 2291; Norman 408; Osler 2250; Wellcome II p.306.

        China; its state and prospects, with especial reference to the spread of the Gospel; containing allusions to the antiquity, extent, population, civilization, literature, and religion of the Chinese

      Crocker & Brewster, New York 1838 - First American edition, small 8vo, pp. xv, [1], [13]-472; folding frontispiece map, 6 wood-engravings by G. Baxter on 3 plates; a fine, bright copy in original brown cloth, gilt-lettered spine. A stunning copy. Walter Henry Medhurst (1796-1857) was an English missionary who served an apprenticeship in the printing trade before joining the Missionary Society. He was sent to Malacca in 1817 where he spent almost 20 years doing Protestant missionary work in what is now Indonesia. It was in Batavia (Jakarta) that he printed on his lithographic press the first English-Japanese dictionary in 1830. After the Opium War he moved to Shanghai in order to assist in a translation of the New Testament into Chinese, and remained in China until his return to England in 1856. Medhurst's long career in the Far East made him familiar not only with Malay and Chinese, but also with Japanese, and he is not only one of the most reliable, but also one of the most informed of the Western sinologists. He also went on to publish a Chinese dictionary and conversation book. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Spermatozoa Observed within the Mammiferous Ovum, 1843, vol 133, p.33; with a total of 25 stipple engraved plates, quarto, contemporary buckram, extracted from The Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, neat small uninked embossed library name stamp on plates, very good copies, half calf gilt in period style, London, The Royal Society, 1838 - 1843. "In his three-part series (Researches in Embryology) Barry tried to follow the history of the mammalian ovum from its first appearance within the ovary through its early stages of development. His numerous observations (mostly on rabbits) resulted in a series of descriptions and illustrations (drawn by himself) that give a good account of that development. Barry made two notable embryological observations: the segmentation of the yolk in the fertilized mammalian ovum and the penetration of the spermatozoon into the mammalian ovum. In 1839 he pictured the two-, four-, eight-, and sixteen-cell stages in mammals and described as similar to a mulberry that stage which Ernst Haeckel later named the morula. Barry concluded that the process he described in the mammal was similar to that already recognized in fishes and barachians, thus strengthening his belief in the unity of the animal world" (DSB). GARRISON & MORTON, 484.1 "Barry was the first to observe the spermatozoon within the ovum" - citing the final paper above. "Martin Barry, MD, FRCPE, FRSE, FRS (1802-1855), British physician, histologist and embryologist. He qualified as a doctor in Edinburgh in 1833, and then studied at the University of Heidelberg. He was elected a fellow of the Royal Society in 1840, and had the previous year, in 1839, been awarded the Society's Royal Medal for his work on embryology. One of his most fundamental discoveries, published in Philosophical Transactions in 1843, was that spermatozoa could sometimes be found inside the ovum. The note that Barry published was titled On the Penetration of Spermatazoa into the Interior of the Ovum. This work, carried out with rabbits, influenced Theodor Ludwig Wilhelm Bischoff's theories concerning fertilisation, but it was not until 1876 that Oscar Hertwig, working with sea urchins, described the fusion of sperm and egg to form a new structure."

        Oliver Twist; or, the Parish Boy's Progress

      London: Richard Bentley,, 1838. By "Boz." In Three Volumes. 3 volumes, octavo (200 × 125 mm). Contemporary olive calf, spines elaborately gilt in compartments, red and dark blue morocco labels, yellow coated endpapers, ruling to boards in gilt and blind, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. 24 etched plates by George Cruikshank including the "Fireside" plate (facing p. 313 in vol. III). Bindings a little rubbed at the extremities, spines tanned, contents spotted. A very good set. First edition, first issue with the Fireside plate and "Boz" on the title page. Walter E. Smith explains the bibliographical details in Charles Dickens in the Original Cloth: "when Bentley decided to publish Oliver in book form before its completion in his periodical, Cruikshank had to complete the last few plates in haste. Dickens did not review them until the eve of publication and objected to the Fireside plate ("Rose Maylie and Oliver" [the final plate in vol. III])... Dickens had Cruikshank design a new plate [the Church plate] which retained the same title ... This Church plate was not completed in time for incorporation into the early copies of the book, but it replaced the Fireside plate in later copies... Dickens not only objected to the Fireside plate, but also disliked having "Boz" on the title page. He voiced these objections prior to publication and the plate and title page were changed between November 9 [publication date] and 16.
