        Autograph letter to Messrs Frederic Huth & Co.

      Off the Lizard, coast of England: 10 July, 1838. Three page manuscript letter, 205 x 165 mm., on a single sheet folded in half; postal stamps, remnants of red wax seal. Most uncommon autograph letter by the naturalist Lhotsky, written off the Cornish coast in 1838 as he returned from Hobart. Written in his difficult hand, the letter nonetheless can be shown to relate to Lhotsky's twin anxieties: concern about money, and worries about the fate of his collecting chests.Lhotsky was educated in Prague and Berlin, before joining the Bavarian Botanical Society and moving to Vienna. It was the King of Bavaria who granted him the funding to conduct research in South America and Australia, and Lhotsky duly arrived in Sydney in 1832, spending four difficult years in New South Wales during which time he made his important expedition to the Monaro and Snowy Mountains (his book, never completed, was published in Sydney and is now one of the famous rarities of inland exploration). In 1836 he moved to Hobart, where he managed to find work, including making a geological survey for Governor Franklin, but his prospects did not really improve, and he sailed for England in April 1838. Lhotsky's later career was difficult, and he died in poverty in 1866.The present letter was written to the London merchants and bankers Frederick Huth & Company of South Street, Finsbury Square. Huth had first gone into business for himself in Corunna, Spain in 1805, but by 1809 was in London. His company was at the South Street address in Finsbury from 1818 to 1839. Of slight stature, he was sometimes called the "Napoleon of the City", and his bank was considered second only to the truly global houses such as Barings or the Rothschilds. Here Lhotsky notes that he had paid the Hobart agents Willis Garrett & Co £50 for his passage, and used three chests of specimens as security for a further outstanding £30. Lhotsky asks the banker not to advance the funds until the chests are safely handed over.Manuscript material relating to Lhotsky is known to be very rare indeed, and this is a most unusual survival.Messrs Frederic Huth & CoN3South Street &Times SquareLondonOff the Lizard Coast of England10 July 38Wohlgeborener Herr!Ich habe die Ehre Ihnen anzuzeigen, daß ich für eine Zeitlang Australien verlaßen habe, um meine Reiseberichte zu drucken, u. andere _________ Geschäfte in England abzumachen. Ich nehme mich die Freyheit Ihnen von hier zu schreiben, u. das einer Geschäfter wegen. Ich habe in Hobartoon £50.0.0 für meine Passage bezahlt, u. die Herrn Willis & Garrett mitzuteilte, daß ich ihm, für die nachständigen £30.0.0 drey große Kisten als Sicherheit gabe, übrigens erwähnen, das ich zeitweilig Geldes durch Ihr Haus erhalte, welche ich ihm gleichfalls als Sicherheit darboth. __________ wurde angenommen. Wie es aber in Botany Bay zu gehen pflegt, so wurde ich ein paar Stunden von unsere Abreise, an Bord des Schiffes veranlaßt, nach übrigens Wechselbriefe zu diesen Betrags zu unterzeichnen. Zum Glück besitze ich eine Berechnung, voraus erhellt, daß meine 3 Kisten eine Sicherheit für diese £30.0.0 sind. Ich bitte daher Eure Wohlgeb. (auf den fall, daß Sie Gelde für mich haben), diesen Wechsel nicht zu bezahlen, weil sonst jeden Anhaltspunkt, meine Kisten in guten Zustände vom Schiffe zu erhalten, ___________ möchte. Sind Gelder da, so soll Zahlung und Ablieferung die Kisten unter einen geschehe; sind keine da, so will ich das Uebrigen selbst wiederstatten. Jedoch bitte ich Auslegen (____________) zu vermeiden. In ein paar Tagen werde ich die Ehre haben, Ihnen letzlich nach meinem vielen gemachten persönlich abzustatten. MitAchtung J. Lhotzky. C. T. Die 3 Kisten enthalten den besten Theil meiner gemachten Sammlungen.Huth is a banker, and Lhotzky writes to him from off the Lizard Coast to advise that he has left Australia for a while to have the report of his travels printed and to transact other business in England. He takes the liberty to write to advise that he had paid £50 for his passage and had offered the firm of Willis & Garrett three large chests containing the best of the collections that he had made as security for the outstanding £30. He did not have time, however, to get the bill of exchange signed in Botany Bay. He is fortunate to have a valuation for the chests, and offers them to Huth as security, but requests that Huth not advance the funds until the chests are safely handed over. In a few days he will be able to report on the many things he has done personally. Very good.

        Minute and Cash Book for the 'Loyal Star of Providence (Oddfellows) Lodge', Crowland, near Peterborough, Cambridgeshire 1838-1844.

      1838-1844 4to notebook, 228pp completed in manuscript. Half black sheep, marbled boards a little rubbed.Manuscript record of the activities of this Oddfellows Lodge from its inception in 1838 to July 10th 1844, giving details of Lodge and Committee meetings and finances. At the opening of the Lodge on October 8th there appear to have been ten members: Bro. William Smith, 'Noble Grand (Master)', Isic (sic) Phillips, Vice, John Hackworth, Secretary, Jeremiah Askew, Warden, Thomas Booth 'Outdoor Tyler', James Ellis 'Inside ditto', John Kirby 'R-H-S to NG', Charles Hickling (crossed through, replaced by William Whittle) 'L-H-S to NG', Thomas Clark, Treasurer, with post of Assistant Secretary left vacant. The officers names are updated to April 7th 1841. Funds were raised from Initiations, Subscriptions, Goods Sold, Fines paid and 'Proposition Money'. As membership and funds increase, services such as a retained surgeon, sick relief and funding for funerals are introduced. By October 1839, almost 100 people were 'invited to attend the anniversary' - an important annual celebration. All is not plain sailing: there is a 'Protest' to the District Officers at Wisbeach (sic) for not giving sufficient assistance, while one of them, P. Gill, charged a fee for 'casual instruction' while he had 'accidentally' passed through Crowland - a charge which was swiftly 'crossed from our bill'. The Lodge also fought against being forced to join a District Funeral Fund having set up their own and against a suggestion that the Lodge join up with Whittlesea. As well as settling internal disputes between Brothers, in January 1839 it was proposed that the venue for meetings be changed owing to the 'conduct of the hostess' and 'through the immorality practised in the next room' (presumably by either Mrs Clark or Thomas Clark, the treasurer); after a vote, gatherings would henceforth take place 'at the House of Abraham Blood - known by the sign of the George Hotel.' In May 1839, Henry Girdlestone was elected an Honorary Member having wagered that he could walk a thousand miles in a hundred days - and in fact completed 1,025 miles in 49 days. The 'Oddfellows' emerged from mediaeval trade guilds as friendly societies for mutual support by and for members in times of sickness and bad luck. Compared with freemasonic lodges centred on one trade or profession, members were working class tradesmen and craftsmen - such as wheelwrights, carters, labourers, millers, farmers and bricklayers - 'oddfellows' from an assortment of trades. This detailed manuscript record gives a very clear picture of such a friendly society, its fund-raising, disbursements, disputes and management.

        Copy of a Despatch from Lieut.-Governor Sir John Franklin, to Lord Glenelg... relative to the present system of Convict Discipline in Van Diemen's Land.

      London: by order of Parliament, 1838. Tall quarto, fine in an attractive red crushed morocco binding by Sangorski, spine in raised bands with gilt lettering. Detailed report on convict management prepared shortly after the arrival of Governor Sir John Franklin in Van Diemen's Land. The document was issued at the beginning of Franklin's rule, and amasses information relating to the system created by the Governor George Arthur (whose regulations are here printed over 11 pages). Accordingly, it is a benchmark publication for the convict history of Tasmania. It includes testimonials and documents submitted by most of the major players in the penal system, including men who later became bitter enemies of the new Governor. The report incorporates an evaluation of convict discipline by Captain Alexander Maconochie who travelled from Britain to serve as Franklin's private secretary. Although dismissed in 1838, Maconochie later served as Superintendent of Norfolk Island and is regarded as the most enlightened penal reformer working in Australia during the transportation era.The lengthy appendices to this volume are a goldmine of detailed biographical and statistical information for the year 1837, detailing pardons, tickets of leave, the sentencing of recidivist convicts and much more.

        Pathological Anatomy. Illustrations of the Elementary Forms of Diseases

      London: Longman, Orme, Brown, Green and Longman for the author, 1838. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Folio (362 x 268 mm). 109 unnumbered leaves, 48 fine hand-colored lithographed plates after Carswell, protected by tissue guards. Contemporary half calf over marbled boards, spine with black label lettered in gilt (boards and extremities rubbed, boards somewhat bent outward, upper joint split at head of spine, spine ends and label chipped), marbled endpapers. Some light browning and occasional, mainly marginal, spotting to text and plates. Provenance: Royal College of Physicians of Ireland (ink stamp on title verso). A good unstained copy. ----Eimas, Heirs of Hippocrates 1501; Norman 408; Osler 2250; Garrison-Morton 2291; Goldschmid 156; Wellcome II, p.306. - FIRST EDITION IN BOOK FORM. Carswell's atlas, which he illustrated himself, is one of the most beautiful atlases of pathology. 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. The work's importance was swiftly recognized, and it remained esteemed throughout the century, as J. F. Payne's opinion of 1886 demonstrates: "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" (DNB). Sir William Osler, who began his career as a pathologist, notes: "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, Bibliotheca Osleriana, 2250). Rivaled for beauty and accuracy only by Cruveilhier's Anatomie pathologique du corps humain, this work "is rightly regarded as one of the finest pathological atlases ever produced." (Eimas, Heirs of Hippocrates 1501). "The beautiful hand-colored lithographed plates ... include good representations of post-mortem digestion of the stomach, cirrhosis of the liver, dry gangrene of the toes, endocarditis, and tuberculosis of the lungs and intestine" (Norman); these plates also include "the first illustration (in color) 'of the brain in general paralysis of the insane'" (Hunter and MacAlpine, Three Hundred Years of Psychiatry, 1535-1860, p. 784). Very Good.

        On the Functions of the Cerebellum, by Drs Gall, Vimont, and Broussais, translated . by George Combe; Also Answers to the Objections Urged Against Phrenology by Drs Roget, Rudolphi, Prichard, and Tiedemann, by George Combe and Dr. A. Combe.

      - Edinburgh, MacLachlan & Stewart 1838. Octavo publisher's patterned cloth with paper spine label (a bit marked); xliv,339pp, a few illustrations. A mild tidemark on the endpapers but no further in. An appealing copy even without the inscription 'To Dr. A. Brigham with best regards from Geo.Combe 12 November 1838'. First edition and a pretty fabulous association. Amariah Brigham was a founder of American psychiatry and, like many well-meaning reformers and progressives in the field, held to phrenological principles. Combe was in America in November 1838, it was early in his American lecture tour - a stay of two years - and had met Brigham on his arrival in New York. Brigham was more or less in charge of arranging the lecture tour. The date of this inscription is puzzling: Combe's entry for November 12 in 'Notes on the United States of America' (1841) recounts a visit to Salem but nothing more. So why this day? The book itself is one of the central pillars of Combe's, all the early phrenologists, attempt to establish a sound scientific and reasoned basis for phrenology in the face of ridicule and attacks of more respectable and respected scientists.

        Memoirs of Charles Mathews, Comedian

      - London - Richard Bentley 1838 - An attractively bound four volume set of the memoirs of Charles Mathews by his wife Anne Jackson Mathews. In signed bindings by C. Lewis. Collated complete. Charles Mathews (1776-1835) was an English theatre manager and comic actor, well known during his time for his gift of impersonation and table entertainment. His play, At Home, in which he played every character, was the first monopolylogue and the defining work in the genre. Mathews started off in his career by playing bit parts in plays, but in 1803 he made his first London appearance at the Haymarket as Jabel in Richard Cumberland's The Jew and as Lingo in The Agreeable Surprise. His gift for mimicry enabled him to disguise his personality without a change of costume. His originality and versatility were best displayed in his one-man show entitled At Home or, Mathews At Home, which he initiated in the Lyceum Theatre in 1908. The show combined mimicry, storytelling, recitations, improvisations, quick-change artistry and comic song. Each volume contains a frontispiece. Volumes I and IV each contain two plates. Volumes II and III each contain 4 plates. Condition: Insigned calfbindings by C. Lewis. Externally, sound with some shelfwear, handling marks and light spotting to boards. Internally, firmly bound. Pages bright with someoccasional spotting. Previous owner's bookplates to front pastedowns of each volume. Overall: VERY GOOD. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      (4), XIX, (1bl), 727 Paris, Rignoux, 1838, in-8, (4), XIX, (1bl), 727, (1bl)pp, 8 pl, broché, Edition pré-originale, fort rare. La première édition paraitra en 1854 ; elle comptera plus de 700 pages et 8 planches de gravures. Le présent Petit traité est extrait du Dictionnaire de Médecine dit, sur la page de titre, "en 25 volumes". Il s'agit probablement de l'Adelon et Béclard. Velpeau conjugue, avec cette publication, ces études des cas de maladie cancéreuse et ses théories de médecine opératoire. Il divise son traité en fonction des morphologies étudiées : maladies des mamelles chez la femme (inflammations, engorgements, abcès, contusions et dépôts sanguins et tumeurs), chez l'homme (squirrhe et kyste), chez les nouveau-nés ; puis selon les techniques chirurgicales employées (amputations ou bandages). Malgré des piqûres éparses, bon exemplaire de ce rare traité qui forme le canevas de la future grande monographie de Velpeau sur les maladies du sein et de la région mammaire.

        Pérégrinations d'une Paria (1833-1834) ; par Mlle Flora Tristan.

      Arthus Bertrand, Paris 1838 - 2 vol. in-8 de XLVII-400 pp. et (2)-462-(2) pp., demi-basane verte, dos lisse orné de fers romantiques (reliure de l'époque). Édition originale très rare. Flora Tristan Y Moscozo de son vrai nom, était la fille d'un général péruvien, marié en Espagne à une Française dont la régularité du mariage ne fut pas reconnue à la mort du général. En 1833, un voyage au Pérou pour revendiquer l'héritage paternel fut un échec, mais donna la base de son deuxième livre, Pérégrinations d'une Paria, ouvrage dans lequel elle dépeint les misères de la femme en Amérique du sud. Dans son avant-propos, s'adressant aux femmes, Flora Tristan engage le combat féministe ; l'ouvrage fut brûlé, ainsi que l'auteur en effigie sur la place publique à Arequipa. Précieuse lettre autographe signée jointe (2 pages in-8) datée du 7 mai [1838], adressée au n°11 rue Neuve Saint-Georges, propriété d'Alexis Dosne [aujourd'hui 35 rue Saint-Georges où habita le général San Martin, libérateur de l'Argentine, de 1835 à 1848] : « Monsieur, J'espère que vous voudrez bien excuser la liberté que je prends de m'adresser à vous n'ayant pas l'honneur de vous connaître. Depuis plus d'un mois je cherche l'adresse du Général San Martin sans pouvoir parvenir à la découvrir. J'ai appris ces jours derniers que vous étiez très lié avec le Général et j'ai espéré Monsieur que vous seriez assez complaisant pour me donner son adresse. Le motif qui me fait espérer connaître le Général San Martin, est d'avoir de lui quelques renseignements sur le Pérou et personne mieux que lui n'est à même de me fournir l'espèce de renseignement qui me sont nécessaires pour l'ouvage que je suis sur le point de publier. Je ne doute pas de son obligeance à cet égard, sur un service qu'il se plaira à me rendre comme auteur ou comme compatriote. Agréez Monsieur l'assurance de ma haute considération. Flora Tristan, 100 bis rue du Bac ». Très bon exemplaire, soigneusement lavé, gardes renouvelées. Le faux-titre du deuxième tome manque. Kirchheimer, 1013 ; Sabin, 97003.

        An untitled manuscript map of Cumberland County, New Jersey, and the surrounding area

      [No place but Burlington, Iowa 1838 - Pen, ink and watercolour map of Cumberland County, with the properties of D. Parvin and D. Harris, and numerous towns located, the demarcation line between marsh and solid ground marked, and the routes and names of all the main rivers and creeks shown, some roads marked in pencil, and the route between Salem, Salem Co., and the tip of Cape May marked with a purple dotted line. Sheet size: 16 3/4 x 13 1/2 inches. An attractive map of Cumberland County, in southern New Jersey The Parvin property is identified as being on the southern bank of the Cohansey River in Fairfield Township. The Harris property is in adjoining Downe Township. These are the only two individual properties identified on the map, suggesting that the map was either compiled for or by a member of the Parvin or Harris family. This map was loosely inserted in an 1838 edition of Bradford's Illustrated Atlas , inscribed on the title "Theodore Sutton Parvin, Burlington, Iowa, August 15/ [18]38", and an examination of the map of New Jersey in the atlas shows that the Cumberland County area was squared up for enlargement. All of which gives a source and probable author of the map. Parvin has added some names and geographical features in addition to those shown on the Bradford engraved map. Theodore Sutton Parvin was born in Cedarville, Cumberland County, N. J., on January 15, 1817; and died June 28, 1901. He graduated at Woodward College, Cincinnati, in 1836; he studied law; was private secretary of Robert Lucas, the first governor of the Iowa Territory, and was the first librarian of that territory. Later he was librarian and professor in the Iowa State University; was a founder of the Iowa State Historical Society in 1857, and for the years 1863-65 was its corresponding secretary and editor. He was the founder, in 1844, of the Iowa Masonic Library, and through his exertions this library has its present building at Cedar Rapids. From its foundation until his death, fifty-seven years, he was its librarian. ( Collections of the Minnesota Historical Society , [1905]. vol.X, part II, p.871).

        Catalog of the Anatomical Theatre’s Collections at the Breslau University – from one of the Fathers of Modern Teratology). - Neues Verzeichniss der anatomischen Sammlung des Königl. Anatomie-Instituts zu Breslau.

      Breslau, Hirt, 1838. - Octavo. 5 ff., 224 pp. Professional recent marbled boards matching contemporary style. Title with a faint, old library stamp (stating just ‘library copy’, but there is no indication there on which library is meant), pages minorily browned, but all together a very good to fine copy. First edition of this catalog of the anatomical collections at the University of Breslau (today Wroc?aw, Poland) counting for more than 12.000 specimen, among which several thousands of zoological and zootomical interest. "Sehr geschätztes Verzeichnis und Beschreibung der Präparaten-Sammlung des anatomischen Instituts zu Breslau" (ADB 24, 744). A first catalog of the museum with only 8.000 (and for a large part different) specimen was published from 1826 to 1833 and according to the author had become obsolet after a huge amount of preparats had been destroyed by intense use and transport and therefore had to be replaced by new and different ones. On top of that also the complete arrangement of the museum had changed significantly in the meantime making it neccessary to publish a new catalog (see preface, f. 3). The author, who graduated as a medician with degrees from the Universities of Greifswald and Frankfurt studied also under Georges Cuvier in Paris and held the position of a professor for anatomy in Breslau from 1813 on. While also being remembered as a zoologist describing quite a number of new species of mammals, birds and especially molluscs for the first time and not only by that contributing to natural history, he was the man behind the new anatomical theatre and museum in Breslau, which was established upon his initiative in the years of 1834/1835. Otto added a wealth of material to the local collections (all to be identified in the catalog by his intials!) and while the main focus of his interest all throughout his career lay on the subject of human and animal malformations, about a fourth of the entries in the catalog describe preparats of such conditions. His efforts for the Breslau anatomical museum and his writings on the subject made Otto one of the most prominent fathers of modern teratology. 2000 g

        Der Vorläufer. Vom Verfasser der Briefe eines Verstorbenen.

      Stuttgart, Hallberger`sche, 1838. XVIII + 532 S. Priv. Pp. der Zeit. EA. WG II 8. - Anfangs und am Ende Blätter mit papierbedingter Oxidation, stockfleckig, einige hds. Bleistift-Anm. a. fl. V. 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.
