(Teplitz, Böhmen / Teplice, Tschechien 1764-1820 Wien), Offizier. "Smola trat 1780 als Kanonier in die Artillerie ein, kam 1786 zum neu errichteten Bombardierkorps und wurde 1787 Leutnant. Im Türkenkrieg zeichnete er sich bei den Belagerungen von Sabac und v. a. von Belgrad aus. 1790 wurde er zum Artillerie-Füsilier-Bataillon nach Flandern versetzt, bei dem er organisatorische Verbesserungen erzielte. Smola, der im Feldzug von 1792 gegen Frankreich u.a. an der Schlacht von Jemappes teilnahm, kam dann zum Artillerie-Regiment 1 und übernahm 1793 das Kommando einer reitenden Batterie. Mit dieser war er bei allen Schlachten und Gefechten unter Erzherzog Karl zugegen. [..] Bei Aldenhoven und Neerwinden war seine Anordnung, die Artillerie zu grösseren Batterien zusammenzufassen, für den Erfolg ausschlaggebend [..]. 1799 Hauptmann, zerstörte seine Einheit die französische Schiffsbrücke vor Mannheim, was die Eroberung der Stadt ermöglichte. [..] 1805 kämpfte er in Italien, 1809 als Oberst und Artillerie-Chef des 3. Armeekorps u.a. bei Regensburg, Hausen [..], Aspern, Deutsch Wagram und Znaim (Znojmo). Zuletzt machte Smola (1813 Generalmajor) noch die Feldzüge von 1813-15 in Innerösterreich, Oberitalien und Südfrankreich mit und reorganisierte die Artillerie in Italien und Dalmatien. [..] Smola modernisierte die Artillerietaktik durch Konzentration der Geschütze in grösseren Einheiten und war auch für technische Innovationen, wie z.B. eine 1807 konstruierte Wall-Lafette, verantwortlich. 1891 erhielt das Korps-Artillerie-Regiment 11 seinen Namen; 1966 wurde die Kaserne in Groß-Enzersdorf nach ihm benannt. Smolas Aufzeichnungen über das Artilleriewesen wurden nach seinem Tod von seinen Söhnen bearbeitet und herausgegeben. (A. Schmidt-Brentano, in: ÖBL 12, 2005, p. 372 f.). Vgl. auch ADB: "In Handschrift hinterliess er ein höchst verdienstliches Hilfsbuch für den praktischen Artilleriedienst unter dem bescheidenen Titel: 'Vormerkungen für die österreichische Artillerie', in welchem er seine in 32 Schlachten, 3 Belagerungen und der 71tägigen Vertheidigung einer Festung gesammelten Erfahrungen niederlegte."

        Map of the United States Territory of Oregon West of the Rocky Mountains

      Washington, D.C.: U.S. Government., 1839.. Washington, D.C.: U.S. Government.. 1839.. Black and white engraved map, 17 3/8 x 20 1/2 inches (44 x 52 cm) on sheet 18 3/4 x 22 7/8 inches, folded into complete (disbound) GOVERNMENT REPORT Rep. No. 101 (25th Congress, 3d Session with Supplemental Report). Map: tear just entering neat line at upper left, scattered light foxing, particularly on left and upper right folds. Report has library stamp in left margin. 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 map is bound into the Report No. 101 of the 25th Congress, 3d Session, House of Representatives: Territory of Oregon, January 4, 1899, with the Supplemental Report of February 16, 1839. The first report, after considering the various claims by different countries to the Northwest coast culminates in "A Bill to provide for the protection of the citizens of the United States residing in the Oregon Territory, or trading on the Columbia river or its tributaries." The supplementary report appends various documents "which have been communicated to them, in evidence of the necessity there is to provide, by law, for the protection of citizens of the United States, who have already established themselves in Oregon, or contemplate proceeding thither for the purpose of colonization and settlement." The title on the map continues: "Exhibiting the various Trading Depots or Forts occupied by the British Hudson Bay Company connected with the Western and northwestern Fur Trade." The map itself, 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), 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. .

        Jericho April 3rd 1839

      F.G. Moon, London - Beautiful view overlooking the Jordan River from David Roberts' "Views in the Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt and Nubia". Born in Scotland, Roberts (1796-1864) gained renown as a landscape artist from documenting his extensive travels through Spain and the Near and Middle East. His most well known work, "Views in the Holy Land.Egypt and Nubia" illustrates Roberts' trip in 1838-39. The subsequent publication was issued in 41 parts between 1842 and 1849. This magnificent set was a collaborative project between Roberts and the skilled printer Louis Haghe (1806-1885) and is recognized as one of the most important lithographic works of the 19th century. This particular print comes from the deluxe subscribers edition, which was issued without text and the illustrations mounted to evoke the original watercolors of his sketchbook. Minor aging and glue residue along edges. Slight stain to upper right corner of image. View. Tinted lithograph with hand coloring, mounted on card, as issued. Image measures 13 3/8" x 19.5", sheet measures 16.5" x 23.75".

      Quedlinburg und Leipzig, Gottfried Basse, 1838 – 1839. - Im Gesamtumfang von ca. 920 S. Überaus seltenes Werk zum Wissensstand der Chemie, im Besonderen zum Stand der industriellen Chemieproduktion im frühen 19. Jahrhundert. Bedenkt man, daß die Chemieindustrie – etwa im Vergleich zur Schwerindustrie – als junger Industriezweig zu gelten hat und von industrieller Produktion auf diesem Sektor eigentlich erst ab der Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts gesprochen werden kann, so greift das Werk auf die ersten Anfänge und Weichenstellungen dieser Industrie im Zuge des Übergangs vom Handwerk zur Industrieproduktion zurück. Auszüge aus dem Inhalt: Papierfabrikation – Kanonen- und Glockengießerei – Gewehrfabrikation – Fabrication des Rauch- und Schnupftabaks – Branntweinfabrication – Färbekunst – Bronciren, Vergolden, Versilbern, Verzinnen von Metallen – Bierbrauerei – Seifensiederei – Theorie und Geschichte der Dampfmaschinen – Leuchtgaserzeugung – Chocoladenfabrication – Glas- und Spiegelhütten – Siegellackproduktion – Münzprägung. de 1200 Die Bände in gutem Zustand, allenfalls leicht berieben. In Band 4 die ersten beiden Seiten fehlend, die Seiten 49/50 sowie 161 – 166 mit Teilausriß (bei S. 49/50 mit größerem, bei den Seiten 161 – 166 mit geringem Textverlust). Sonst auch innen guter Zustand, allenfalls wenige Seiten etwas fleckig bzw. gebräunt. Bd. 1 mit ausfaltbarer Kupfertafel im Anhang. In toto gutes Teilexemplar dieses außerordentlich originellen und seltenen Werkes, das, soweit festgestellt, ansonsten nirgends in mehrbändigen Ausgaben erhältlich ist.

        Punka Indians camped on the banks of the Missouri [Vig. 11]

      Paris, Coblenz and London: [1839-42]. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Salathé after Bodmer, issue with no date after English imprint. 9 1/4 x 12 1/2 inches. 12 3/8 x 18 1/8 inches. On 11 May, whilst the steamer Yellow Stone was stopped near White Bear Bluffs, three Ponca Indians came aboard. They were given a lift up-river to their camp near Bazile Creek. Bodmer here sketches the moment when these three, including their chief Schuh-De- Gá-Che (`He Who Smokes'), were ferried ashore, to be greeted by an enthusiastic welcoming party of curious children and adults all wrapped in furs or blankets. Their camp of tipis can be seen in the forest margin beyond. The Ponca (Panka, or Punka), whose name denotes `sacred head', are closely related to the Omaha, Osage and Kansa Tribes, all of whom speak the same dialect. Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. Well-armed with information and advice, the party finally left St.Louis, on the most important stage of their travels, aboard the steamer Yellow Stone on April 10 1833. They proceeded up the treacherous Missouri River along the line of forts established by the American Fur Company. At Bellevue they encountered their first Indians, then went on to make contact with the Sioux tribe, learning of and recording their little known ceremonial dances and powerful pride and dignity. Transferring from the Yellow Stone to another steamer, the Assiniboin, they continued to Fort Clark, visiting there the Mandan, Mintari and Crow tribes, then the Assiniboins at Fort Union, the main base of the American Fur Company. On a necessarily much smaller vessel they journeyed through the extraordinary geological scenery of that section of the Missouri to Fort Mackenzie in Montana, establishing a cautious friendship with the fearsome Blackfeet. From this, the westernmost point reached, it was considered too dangerous to continue and the return journey downstream began. The winter brought its own difficulties and discomforts, but Bodmer was still able to execute numerous studies of villages, dances and especially the people, who were often both intrigued and delighted by his work. The portraits are particularly notable for their capturing of individual personalities, as well as forming a primary account of what were to become virtually lost cultures. Graff 4648; Howes M443a; Pilling 2521; Sabin 47014; Wagner-Camp 76:1.

        Modes de Paris (Two Volumes) Petit Courrier des Dames; Bon Ton

      S. & J. Fuller 1839-1847, London - 4to. The first volume is 26 by 16.5 cm, the second volume, 28 by 19.5 cm. 214 and 153 hand-colored plates, respectively, for a total of 367 such plates. Notwithstanding the difference in size, the two volumes are bound in a matching half vellum and marbled boards, and they read as a set. The difference in size is NOT because the plates were cut differently, but rather, a reflection of a change in the size of the original printing. The plates were staples of fashion magazines such as Bon Ton, but it is also believed that often such plates were available individually and those that went into these two volumes were a compilation of plates sold singly, as there would be markings in the margins of some if they had been pulled from bound volumes. The plates are mostly of women's fashion, with a smattering of men's, and the collection here facilitates greatly our observance of the then slow but steady evolution of fashion over an eight year period. Number of plate neatly inked in corner of each plate. Scattered light foxing. Soiling to the vellum and wear to the boards. [Attributes: First Edition]

Graesse I: 436 (1841). "The most exhaustive work on this episode [the Pastry War] with illustrations, mainly by Blanchard, who, assisting also as interpreter, had additional opportunity for gaining information. He accompanied Baudin's representative to Mexico and other places, and used his pen freely in observations on the scenery, the people, and their institutions, all of which served to add variety and interest to the narrative, the attractive style of which owes much to the revision of Dauzats, " (Bancroft, Hist. Mexico, p. 204). Raines, discussing Maissin's report, concludes that "Admiral Baudin's favorable report of Texas doubtless hastened the recognition of the Republic by France, " (Bibliography of Texas. p. 145). Printing on India paper was not common; Sabin also notes that the book was printed for 45 fr. with vignettes and 25 fr without.

        Washinga Sahba's Grave on Blackbird's Hills [Vig. 12]

      Paris, Coblenz and London: [1839-1842]. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Ch. Vogel after Bodmer, blindstamp. Repaired tears to margins, some surface soiling to margins. 9 x 12 1/2 inches. 11 1/8 x 14 3/8 inches. Bodmer, Prince Maximilian and David Dreidoppel were heading up the Missouri River aboard the steamer Yellow Stone.On 5 May they had left Cabanné's post for the abandoned military post of Fort Atkinson in the vicinity of present day Fort Calhoun, Nebraska On the morning of 7 May 1833 they passed the spot pictured here by Bodmer: the Blackbird Hills, named after a chief of the Omahas who had insisted on being buried in a mound seated upon a mule. As the boat passed by three Indians look on warily, two keep guard on the bank whilst a third waters his horse. Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. Well-armed with information and advice, the party finally left St.Louis, on the most important stage of their travels, aboard the steamer Yellow Stone on April 10 1833. They proceeded up the treacherous Missouri River along the line of forts established by the American Fur Company. At Bellevue they encountered their first Indians, then went on to make contact with the Sioux tribe, learning of and recording their little known ceremonial dances and powerful pride and dignity. Transferring from the Yellow Stone to another steamer, the Assiniboin, they continued to Fort Clark, visiting there the Mandan, Mintari and Crow tribes, then the Assiniboins at Fort Union, the main base of the American Fur Company. On a necessarily much smaller vessel they journeyed through the extraordinary geological scenery of that section of the Missouri to Fort Mackenzie in Montana, establishing a cautious friendship with the fearsome Blackfeet. From this, the westernmost point reached, it was considered too dangerous to continue and the return journey downstream began. The winter brought its own difficulties and discomforts, but Bodmer was still able to execute numerous studies of villages, dances and especially the people, who were often both intrigued and delighted by his work. The portraits are particularly notable for their capturing of individual personalities, as well as forming a primary account of what were to become virtually lost cultures.

Like its predecessor Oliver Twist, Nicholas Nickelby is a novel set in Victorian England that features a male youth as the protagonist and puts a human face on the social depravation of the British underclass. In the novel, Nicholas Nickelby, after losing his father, is sent to a boy's school where he witnesses and attempts to prevent the mistreatment of the orphan students by their tyrannical adult wardens. Before its book form publication on October 23, 1839, Nicholas Nickelby was issued in twenty parts, published serially in nineteen monthly installments from April 1839 - October 1839. This volume includes the front and rear paper wrappers for the following issues: No. IV (July 1838), No. VII (October 1838), No. XV (June 1839), No. XVI (July 1839), and No. XVII (August 1839). Only the front wrappers for the following issues are additionally bound into the rear of the text: No. V (August 1838), No. IX (December 1838), no. XII (March 1839), and No. XVIII (September 1839). Each front wrapper contains an illustration by H.K. Browne, who also created the illustrated plates that are included in this volume. Each serial installment included the half-title "Containing a Faithful Account of the Fortunes, Misfortunes, Uprisings, Downfallings, and the Complete Career of the Nickelby Family" and claimed to be edited by "Boz." While both author and illustrator signed the serialized Nicholas Nickelby with pseudonyms, Dickens added his real name to the book form, while Browne continued to be credited as "Phiz.". 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Fine. Illus. by Browne, Hablot Knight.
