        TROY. TAKEN FROM THE WEST BANK OF THE HUDSON, IN FRONT OF THE UNITED STATES ARSENAL

      New York: Henry J. Megarey, 1838. Colored aquatint, image area 17 3/4 x 25 1/2 inches. Mild toning. Very good. Matted and framed. A wonderfully energetic and skillfully hand-colored view of Troy, New York from across the Hudson River, produced by Henry J. Megarey, the publisher of THE HUDSON RIVER PORTFOLIO. The artist, William James Bennett was a London-born watercolor painter and aquatint engraver, probably most famous for his 1841 view of New Orleans, one the finest depictions of American maritime commerce ever printed, and part of the same series of American city views as the current example. Bennett's Troy view is striking in its own right. "In this beautiful aquatint of Troy by the artist, William James Bennett we see a well-developed and busy city. The white-columned building in the left center is the First Presbyterian Church, erected in 1835-1836 (just in time to be included in the aquatint) and still standing today. The square tower with pinnacles to its right is Saint Paul's Protestant Episcopal Church, erected in 1827-1828 and also still standing.... Making its way along the Hudson, further to the right, is the steam packet JOHN MASON, its deck, fore and aft, crowded with passengers. On the viewer's side of the Hudson, we are given a good idea of what well-dressed young men of the 1830s might be wearing.... As is typical of Bennett's work, this view of Troy is a well-balanced pictorial image, containing elements of landscape and riverscape painting" - Deak. Deak refers to Bennett's series of nineteen scenes of late 1830s - early 1840s urban America as "the finest collection of folio views of American cities." The present example is a first state copy, with the word "TROY" unshaded. Exceedingly rare. DEAK, PICTURING AMERICA 479. STOKES, ICONOGRAPHY OF MANHATTAN ISLAND III, pp.619-22.

Overall good. vi, 304, iv pp., plus 18 plates. *** FIRST EDITION. The 18 plates in this volume, which did not appear in any of Poeppig's other works, include a forest fire in Brazil, a trip up the Marañón River, and the Cathedral of Lima. Subjects of the chapters include Matanzas (Cuba), Crete, Kurdistan, Baalbec, Antioch, Natal, the Cape of Good Hope, Damascus, Circassia, Peru, Lebanon, and Oman.Eduard Friedrich Poeppig (1798-1868), German botanist, zoologist and explorer, was sent by the University of Leipzig to gather botanical specimens in North and South America. He spent considerable time in Cuba (1823-24), Pennsylvania (1824-26), and Chile, Peru, and Brazil (1826-1832). His visit to Chile, Peru, and then down the Amazon by raft and canoe to Pará was described in @Reise in Chile, Peru unde auf dem Amazonenstrome während der Jahre 1827-1832, printed in Leipzig, 1835 but not distributed until 1856. Although Poeppig lost some of his scientific data on the trip down the Amazon, he described over 4,000 plant species. Borba comments that "The account of his expedition and the botanical surveys he published are comparable to the work of Humboldt." The plant genus Poeppigia is named after him, as are the Silvery Wooly Monkey (Lagothrix poeppigii), and the orchid Campylocentrum poeppigii (Rchb. f.) Rolfe.*** Not in Borba de Moraes (1983); cf.

        Mr Owen's establishment at New Lanark, a failure!! As proved by Edward Baines, Esq. M.P. and other gentlemen, deputed with him by the parishioners of Leeds, to visit and inspect that establishment, and report thereon.

      Leeds, published by the Leeds District Board of the Association of All Classes of All Nations. 1838. 12mo., 12pp., preserved in modern wrappers with printed label on upper cover. A very good copy. First edition. Goldsmiths 30726. Harrison p.288. NLW (Owen) 488. The Leeds deputation, appointed by the Guardians of the poor in Leeds, comprised Edward Baines himself, together with Robert Oastler and John Cawood. They were asked to report upon the system of education pursued at New Lanark. Their report was entirely favourable. 'Mr. Owen's establishment is conducted in a manner superior to any other the Deputation ever witnessed, dispensing more happiness than perhaps any other Institution in the Kingdom. Public houses, and other resorts of the vicious are no where to be found in this happy village. Intoxication, the parent of so many vices and so much misery is indeed almost unknown here. No cursing or swearing is any where to be heard. There are here no quarrelsome men or brawling women. The inhabitants of this place form a more religious community than any other manufacturing establishment in the Kingdom'.

Reliure frottée, coins usés, dos muet, intérieur frais. Chaque planche en noir est estampillée du timbre sec de "Bauger et Cie". Suite de 49/50 lithographies originales en noir tirées sur blanc 34 x 26 cm. La lithographie n°50 manque pour que la série soit complète. Sans page de titre. Rassemblé tel quel à l'époque. On joint 8 lithographies de cette même série, aquarellées et gommées à l'époque. Quelques défauts dans les marges (déchirures), papier teinté pour certaines. Détail des planches en couleurs sur simple demande. PREMIER TIRAGE. TIRAGE SUR BLANC. La très belle suite Les enfants terribles, 50 lithographies, a paru entre 1838 et 1842. Les 7 premières furent déposées en 1838 et 1839, 41 en 1840 et 1841, les deux dernières en 1842. (Lemoisne, p. 126). "Ce qui rendra l'oeuvre de Gavarni impérissable : cette vie intense, cette profonde connaissance de l'humanité" (Lemoisne) "C'est aussi vers la même époque qu'il imagina un type resté proverbial : l'enfant terrible qui, naïvement indifférent aux cataclysmes qu'il peut déchaîner, dévoile toujours ce qu'il faudrait laisser ignorer, raconte ce qu'il faudrait taire. C'était une idée amusante et nouvelle que de montrer le féroce égoïsme de ces petits monstres, tranquilles et souriants dans leur inconscience. Il est vrai que, sous le crayon de l'artiste, ils sont si drôles que l'on finit par sourire au lieu de plaindre leurs victimes ; victimes que, du reste, le philosophe s'est complu à rendre peu sympathiques à côté de ces tyrans enfantins. [...] Cette série de dessins découle en droite ligne de ses belles études d'enfants de 1834 ; et, cependant, tout en gardant les qualités de celles-ci, montre bien, par le dessin plus libre, plus audacieux, plus cursif, tout le chemin parcouru." (Lemoisne) Référence : Paul-André Lemoisne, Gavarni peintre et lithographe. Paris, Floury, 1924. BON EXEMPLAIRE DE CE RARE PREMIER TIRAGE SUR BLANC.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Jena, 23. VI. 1838.

      1838. 3 SS. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt. Blaues Papier mit Goldschnitt. 4to. An den Musikkritiker und Komponisten Carl Banck (1809-1889): "Warum ich nicht eher geschrieben habe, Liebster? Weil die Muse nicht zu mir getreten ist und ich den Brief nicht ziehen lassen wollte, ohne daß er Ihnen Poetisches mitbrächte. Einzelnes ist wohl aufgetaucht, aber ohne fertig zu werden, ohne sich abzurunden. Dergleichen will doch gute Zeit haben; darum habe ich es und mich gehen laßen. - Soll ich Ihnen nur wieder sagen, daß Sie mir an allen Ecken und Enden fehlen - das fühlte sich durch. Dazu habe ich viel Geschäftliches zu expediren gehabt und das lähmte die Phantasie. - Nun muß ich aber schreiben, denn gleichzeitig mit Ihrem Briefe traf heut Morgen das beifolgende Paket ein wahrscheinlich vom Hofmeister, das ich nun sogleich expedire. Die Einlage für H. ist besorgt. - Ich hatte ihr früher geschrieben, da Luise sie so sehr wünscht; sie ist bereit zu Neujahr wie sie antwortet. Nun wollen wir einmal hinüber. Ende Juli oder August, damit sie und Luise sich sehn und sich mündlich besprechen, [...] Luise ist übrigens eine excellente Frau - Um hinzuhorchen sagte ich, in Rudolfstadt habe man gegen mich gemeint, es existire ein näheres Verhältnis zwischen Ihnen und H. ich wäre aber überzeugt, das sei nicht wahr. L. antwortete: ‚Wäre es auch, was geht das mich an. Wenn sie so ist wie du sie beschreibst so bekomme ich ein ordentliches, gutes Mädchen, das willig und gewandt und mit den Kindern freundlich und fein ist, und mehr verlange ich nicht denn alles Andere kümmert mich nicht.' - sie wissen also woran Sie sind und wenn der T nicht sein Spiel mit Multiplication treibt, so laßen Sie Alles getrost bleiben wie es ist [...]". - Der Sohn jüdischer Eltern studierte in Berlin, wo er sich taufen ließ, Medizin, dann in Kiel Geschichte und Philosophie und wurde 1824 promoviert. Nach kurzer Tätigkeit als Volontär an der Kieler Universitätsbibliothek ging er als Lehrer nach Hamburg und hatte ersten Erfolg mit poetischen Improvisationen. Durch Goethes Vermittlung erhielt er 1826 eine Professur für neuere Sprachen am Gymnasium in Weimar, wechselte 1829 als a.o.Prof. der neueren Sprache und Literatur an die Univ. Jena und wurde 1837 o.Professor. W. schrieb Romane, Novellen, Humoresken, Gedichte und literarische Feuilletons. Bedeutsam sind seine Anthologien Poetischer Hausschatz des deutschen Volkes (1839, (31)1908) und Der Hausschatz deutsche Prosa (1845, (11)1875).

        Rare Chinese Opium War Watercolour Album.

      36 watercolours in a large Chinese traditional handmade album covered in dark blue silk. The watercolours vary very slightly in size but most measure approximately 30 x 58.5cm. Each painting is surrounded by a plain paper border framing it on the page. The album measures 34cm x 67.5cm. The album and the paintings show a little wear, browning and soiling in places. Two leaves have a small crease where a 3 x 2.5cm section is torn at one edge, on a few leaves the paper border is missing or loose in places. Paper border insect damaged along the upper edge of one leaf. Paper lining on the inside upper cover detached at gutter. However, although signs of age and use are evident, the album and paintings are generally sound and clean. Provenance: Mary Ann Frederica Harrison 1838-1910, the wife of Thomas (1835 - 1892) a tea merchant in Canton. Mary Ann Frederica Harrison lived in Canton from 1867 until the early 1890's. Then by family descent. In many ways, this album of paintings encapsulates the gradual but fundamental shift in the nature of international relations with China consequent upon the First Opium War, as Chinese historians prefer to style it nowadays. The War of 1839-42 marked an end to China’s old relationship with the West, and the beginning of a long period of national humiliation during which China was obliged to open more and more ports to foreign trade by international treaties and agreements (which is why such ports were styled "treaty ports") and, before long, to receive foreign ambassadors at its capital. Half the paintings in the album depict the old trading relationship before the War, when merchants from the West did trade with China on China’s terms, and before the Imperial Commissioner Lin Zexu’s attempts to stop the import of foreign opium in mid 1839 and assert Chinese sovereignty. The other half epitomize the changed situation in which Chinese artists were either directed, or chose, to hide a disastrous war behind a series of triumphant representations of successful military encounters which were almost all pure fiction. Interestingly, all save one of the 36 paintings relates to the Canton area of Guangdong. Commissioner Lin’s efforts to stop the import of opium were largely confined to the environs of Canton, whilst hostilities began in the Canton River and the Pearl River Delta. The principal and most interesting painting in the album depicts Lin’s “capture and trial” of Captain Charles Elliot, RN, the British Chief Superintendent of Trade, albeit these events were entirely fanciful and never occurred. Further proof of location is provided by another picture on which Chinese forces are stated on the accompanying text to be from the Shengpeng Charitable School (the name of their headquarters) and from the Sanyuanli villages. These were among the local militia comprising peasant farmers from areas north of Canton, armed only with spears, swords and shields, and led by local gentry, which opposed the British attack on the city in May 1841. The Sanyuanli villages, in particular, became renowned for their fiercely patriotic and anti-British spirit which became enshrined in Chinese popular literature on the War, then and to this day. The majority of the military paintings depict encounters between British troops and Chinese forces. There is no attempt to depict actual uniforms, and the forces on both sides are drawn in ink outline, and painted in a light green and red flat wash. The British are all shown with orange-red hair, in accordance with the nickname commonly in use for Britons among Chinese people in Canton at that time, the equivalent of "Rufus" and with the same meaning. In many of the paintings, British soldiers are being killed, wounded, or captured. In fact, the paintings depict what seldom happened, since the reverse was usually the case in most of the fighting. Later in the War kidnapping or enticing were favoured Chinese means of inflicting casualties on their enemies, whilst disease was by far the deadliest killer of British soldiers and sailors. Thus, like the imagined capture of Captain Elliot, the paintings are mostly representations of wishful thinking, and may be described as a kind of propaganda designed to show the Opium War in a light more favourable to the Chinese than was warranted by the facts. The other group of paintings – we may style them "trading pictures" - are also to be associated with Canton, which was then the only officially-authorized centre for trade with western countries. They depict scenes in which Chinese and Western merchants engage in friendly intercourse during business transactions in the "Foreign Factories" for long located there. The British are shown in top hats, whilst the Chinese merchants are in long robes and carry fans. One merchant is attended by two servants, one of them carrying a cup of tea on a tray, the other a long-stemmed tobacco pipe. The items of trade on display are being brought out in boxes, barrels, or bales by shirtless coolies. The Canton connection is further strengthened by the texts which appear on some of the paintings. Although disappointingly lacking in information on the paintings, some display signs of being Cantonese in grammar and composition. Moreover, the album’s provenance is from Canton. Yet the Opium War was not confined to the South. The British fleet of warships and troopships ranged along the coast, occupying several cities, ultimately capturing Shanghai and other places along the Yangzi, and dictating peace to Chinese commissioners at Nanjing in 1842. The one exception to Canton and the War of 1839-42 in the South depicts an event - for once a Chinese victory - in the Second Opium War, as Chinese historians style the period of further hostilities in 1856-1859. Against Chinese wishes, the British and French Commissioners had wished to proceed to Beijing in person to ratify another treaty (the Tianjin Treaty) made in 1858. This resulted in a failed attempt by a combined Anglo-French fleet to capture the Dagu forts and open the Beihe river causing heavy casualties in warships and men. This forcing of the Beihe river led to Tientsin which was within easy reach of Beijing by land. An American gunboat also features in the painting, though it was present as an observer not as a combatant, making it certain that this was the event in question. For whom were such pictures intended? Whilst this particular set seems to have been assembled for a western purchaser, it would seem that these paintings would have had a much wider market at home in China, to be reached through the medium of wood-block printing. In the days before modern newspapers and photographic images, this was the universal means of reaching the public at large, whether by government notices and proclamations, or by commercial advertising of all kinds, and all over China. In one especially favoured format, they were also used to produce the lunar new year pictures (or nianhua) that had long been a universally popular kind of home decoration. Auspicious topics predominated, but warlike scenes – and always of imperial victories in different conflicts - were included. Paintings such as those in the album could be copied onto wood-blocks of different sizes (since some prints had to be large enough to be pasted on walls) and used to run off multiple copies. There was also the smaller market for the paintings themselves, which were copied in many Canton workshops and studios specializing in producing reproductions intended to be sold individually or in sets. They included those made for sale as "souvenir pictures" for Western visitors or sojourners, as with this particular album. Whilst there are no signs that any paintings are missing from this album, it is likely that those included were a selection of those available at the time. This said, our enquiries indicate that examples of paintings and wood-block prints of this sort are nowadays difficult to find, most probably on account of their being "political ephemera" rather than scholarly artistic works. There is still much research to be done in this field. We have not found an album of similar content which has been offered for sale or is held in an institution. A rare and profoundly important album. .
