        Foro di Augusto detto Arco de' Pantani

      Roma 1839 - L’opera viene eseguita tra il 1836 e il 1839, anno della sua pubblicazione composta da 80 tavole, illustra il viaggio da Roma a Napoli lungo la Via Appia. L’autore vuole fornire al viaggiatore una guida colta e intelligente che lo accompagni lungo l’itinerario delle stazioni di posta. Il viaggio inizia da Porta del Popolo e percorrendo l’asse di Via del Corso, Piazza Venezia, Fori Imperiali e Colosseo, arriva a Porta San Giovanni e lasciando l’Appia in direzione di Albano. Già dalla metà del diciottesimo secolo, con la pubblicazione nel 1745 a Napoli della Via Appia riscoperta e descritta da Roma a Brindisi da F. M. Pratili, la Via Appia era divenuta oggetto di interesse e di ricerca per studiosi e artisti. Rossini dimostra di aver conosciuto e forse utilizzato alcuni disegni acquerellati, eseguiti da Carlo Labruzzi nel 1789, per conto di Sir Richard Colt Hoare, che avevano lo scopo di illustrare il viaggio che questi aveva deciso di intraprendere influenzato dalla lettura delle "Satire" di Orazio (30 a. C.), e in particolare della Quinta, in cui l’autore narra il viaggio che ha compiuto da Roma a Brindisi in compagnia di Mecenate e di altri suoi amici Nelle Spiegazione delle Tavole oltre alle notizie storiche- artistiche e archeologiche, vengono inserite informazioni sulla popolazione e sulle attività agricole delle campagne e dei paesi che vengono a trovarsi lungo il viaggio. L’autore con quest’opera vuole costituire una guida di facile consultazione per il viaggiatore durante le varie tappe del percorso, ed è per questo che ricorre alla scelta del formato ad album. Con il Viaggio Pittoresco, l’animazione delle vedute non è più solo la rappresentazione del popolano romano, di derivazione pinelliana, ma è l’introduzione per la prima volta, anche di membri di quelle classi sociali a cui erano destinate le sue opere. La scelta di questa nuova ambientazione sociale sarà una delle caratteristiche delle opere degli ultimi anni. La tecnica ormai giunta alla piena maturità, rivela una scioltezza del segno e nell’uso dei chiaroscuri fortemente accentuati, Rossini riconferma la sua vocazione per la chiara e piacevole narrazione. Di quest’opera se ne parlerà nel periodico romano L’Album, in cui una tavola della raccolta, (n. 43. Il Tempio di Giove a Terracina) sarà inserita, in dimensioni ridotte, in un numero del 6 marzo 1841, mentre nel 1846 vi comparirà un articolo dello stesso autore dal titolo Intorno ad alcune antichità di Terracina. A VOYAGE PITTORESQUE FROM ROME TO NAPLES The work has been realized between 1836 and 1839, made of 80 plates, depicts the journey from Rome to Naples along the Via Appia. The author wants to provide the traveller with a clever and interesting guide which can accompany him through his journey. The route starts in Porta del Popolo and, through the axis of Via del Corso, Piazza Venezia, Fori Imperiali and Colosseum, brings to Porta San Giovanni to leave the Via Appia towards Albano. Already in the second half of the XVIII century, with the publication of Via Appia riscoperta e descritta da Roma a Brindisi (Naples, 1745) by F. M. Pratili, the Via Appia had become an interesting subject for artists and scholars. Rossini showed to know very well, and maybe to have also studied, the watercolour paintings Carlo Labruzzi realized in 1789, for Sir Richard Colt Hoare, which illustrated the journey Sir Hoare took after reading Horace’s "Satires", from Rome to Brindisi. In the Explanation to the Plates, besides some historic – artistic – archaeological news, there are information about the population and its activities in the country side and the villages that can be found along the route. With this work, the author wanted to realize a user-friendly guide, and this is why he chose the album-size edition. With his Picturesque Journey, the animation of his views is not just the representation of the Romans any more, but it represents the first real introduction of that part of the society he wanted to reach.

        Journal of a Residence in England, and of a Journey from and to Syria, of Their Royal Highnesses Reeza Koolee Meerza, Najaf Koolee Meerza, and Taymoor Meerza, of Persia.

      [London:] printed for private circulation only [by W. Tyler,, 1839]. To which are prefixed some Particulars respecting Modern Persia, and the Death of the late Shah. Originally written in Persian by Najaf Koolee Meerza, and translated, with Explanatory Notes by Assaad Y. Kayat. 2 volumes (197 × 120 mm). Original blue-green cloth, rebacked with the original blind-ruled and gilt-lettered spines laid down, sides decoratively panel-stamped in blind with central bouquet vignettes gilt, fore and bottom edges untrimmed, yellow surface-paper endpapers. Lithographic facsimile of letter from the author as frontispiece. Tips bumped and rubbed, a little faint marking to cloth, contents toned, a few leaves faintly dog-eared, vol. 1 slightly shaken between sigs. M and N but holding. A good copy. First edition of this fascinating and commercially very scarce account of the first visit to England by any member of a Persian ruling dynasty (Monthly Review, vol. 3, 1839). "As the British became more deeply invested in protecting interests in India, relations with Persia became complex. In 1834, several sons of the late Fath Ali Shah claimed the right to rule Persia, creating the possibility of civil war. The British entered the fray, supporting one son and containing other claimants. [Firman Firman] who was imprisoned [by the new ruler Mohammed Shah, r. 1834–48] begged his sons to travel to England to plead the case for his release and protection of the family. This memoir of the successful visit captures the British fascination with their First visitors of the Persian ruling class. While the government negotiated the diplomatic situation, the princes were toured through the country and fêted across fashionable London. The enthusiastic diarist offers extensive (and sometimes exaggerated) descriptions of his experiences, which included a meeting with Princess Victoria with introductions performed by Sir Gore Ouseley" (Harry Ransom Centre). The three princes travelled to England by way of Damascus, where the British consul John Farren provided them with his interpreter Assaad Kayat, a Syrian Christian who later became agent for the Church of England Society for Promoting Christian Education in Syria. The account describes the recent history of Persia and the bloody accession of Mohammed Shah, the princes' outward voyage (which also took in Lebanon and Egypt), their stay in London, and the return journey through Germany, Austria, Hungary and Wallachia.

        Report of a Committee Appointed by a General Meeting to Enquire into the Prospects of a Company Established in London for Navigating the Rivers in the East Indies by Steam Boats

      London: Smith, Elder and Co.. 1839. First. First edition(?). Octavo. Disbound. 49pp., folding map. Lacking wrappers; title page and folding map detached from sewing; good. A scarce report establishes an early point for the English empire's interest in establishing a steam boat line in India, and the methods by which they proposed to go about doing so. Commercial manufacturers and various merchants from Manchester, Liverpool and India were enlisted to support the proposal, and the report outlines navigational routes, estimations of cost, and the enthusiasm of changing maritime trading methods up and down the Ganges. The idea for an East India Inland Steam Navigation Company apparently began percolating in 1837 and this report fits nicely within the small pantheon of material devoted to this literature. Not in OCLC. One copy found at the British Library. .

        LE DAGUERREOTYPE: NOUVELLE EXPÉRIENCE.; EXTRACT FROM: L'ARTISTE: JOURNAL DE LA LITTÉRTURE ET DES BEAUX-ARTS. 2ND SÉRIE, TOME IV, 1RE LIVERAISON [1 SEPTEMBRE 1839]

      Paris: Bureaux de l'Artiste, 1839. First edition. 4to., 4 pp. Faint foxing, archival paper repair along the fold; with a toned area, 1 x 1/2 inch at the top blank margin where tape has been removed. Very good. Laid-in a paper and boards folder with a printed paper label on the front panel, and housed in a cloth over boards portfolio with paper flaps and a printed paper label. Jules Gabriel Janin (1804 - 1874) a French writer and critic, published a series of reviews of the newly announced daguerreian process in L'ARTISTE. Apparently, having attended Arago's official announcement of the process on 19 August, Janin and others were left confused at the complexity of the daguerreian process. Having read Janin's critique in the August 25 issue of L'ARTISTE, Daguerre called upon him to witness a demonstration of the process at his studio; at this point, only a very few had had such an opportunity. Daguerre started with polishing the plate and moved through all the steps to prepare for the exposure. The camera had been readied and focused on a view out of the window. After a six minute exposure, the plate was "developed" under the mercury vapors, fixed and washed. Upon viewing the finished plate, Janin commented, "The view looks as if it had been drawn by the hand of the fairy queen Mab." Janin expressed his regret that Daguerre had not demonstrated his procedure on 19 August, for it would have shown that it was not too complicated, as Arago had made it appear. This review in the 1 September 1839 issue of L'ARTISTE recounts the demonstration. Also see: Gernsheim, Helmut. L.J.M. DAGUERRE: THE HISTORY OF THE DIORAMA AND THE DAGUERREOTYPE, p. 102 - 103. This is the first published account of a witness to the demonstration of the daguerreian process as performed by Daguerre. Roosens and Salu No. 2806.

NOUVEAU MOYEN DE PRÉPARER LA COUCHE SENSIBLE DES PLAQUES DESTINÉE A RECEVOIR LES IMAGES PHOTOGRAPHIQUES. LETTRE A M. ARAGO. Paris: Bachelier, 1844. First edition. 8vo., 16 pp. The first title shows faint stain to the top blank margin of the first 25 pages, the title by Queslin has a few faint spots of foxing, and the final work by Daguerre toned with moderated scattered foxing. In all, these four works are in fine condition. This group of primary daguerreian manuals was assembled by Comte Léon de Laborde, and bound for him in half green morocco and marbled paper over boards; the spine is in six compartments, of which four bear his monogram in gilt of a crown and his interlocking initials. Housed in a clamshell box of quarter morocco and cloth, with raised bands and simple gilt rules, lined in suede. This important collection of daguerreian manuals was bound for Comte Léon de Laborde (1807 - 1869) the son of a prominent Parisian family. He studied archaeology and art history at the University of Göttingen, and traveled extensively through Egypt, Syria, Sinai and Arabia before joining the French diplomatic service. By 1847, he was appointed Conservator of Antiquities at the Louvre Museum. By 1849, Laborde had realized the importance of photography as both an artistic and documentary tool; he proposed photographing the entire Louvre collection - it was never accomplished. Laborde's interest in photography led him to studied photography under Gustave Le Gray, and as a representative of the Commission des Monuments Historiques, he approached the Sociéte Héliographique in 1851, of which he was also a member, to enlist Le Gray, Henri le Secq, Hippolyte Bayard, and Édouard Baldus to photographically record the historic buildings of France. Laborde was instrumental in the organization of the third exhibition of the Société Française de Photographie in 1859. In her excellent article in REAL/IDEAL: Photography in Mid-Nineteenth-Century France, Anne de Mondenard states, "Despite Laborde's relative obscurity today, he seems to be a pivotal figure who invested tremendous efforts throughout the year 1849 in promoting photography." The first title is Daguerre's primary published work, which includes the detailed manual of his process. According to Beaumont Newhall, the first issue was released on or about 20 August 1839 and bears the imprint of Giroux et Cie, and Delloye. The printing was performed by Béthune et Plon. Of this, only three copies are known to have survived. On 14 September, copies of this first printing by Béthune et Plon, were released for sale with the imprint of Susse Freres, Editeurs, and Delloye. It is identical to the first issue with the exception of the imprint, and the 3 pages of advertisements which follow the text. Bibliographically speaking, this is the first edition, first issue, second imprint. It is the first obtainable edition, and it too is rare, with WorldCat locating less than 10 copies. By 1840, this manual went through 30 printings and numerous editions and translations. For a chronological listing, see Beaumont Newhall, AN HISTORICAL & DESCRIPTIVE ACCOUNT OF THE VARIOUS PROCESSES OF THE DAGUERREOTYPE & DIORAMA BY DAGUERRE. Winterhouse, NY, 1971. p. 269 - 277. However, in the article by Pierre G. Harmant in HISTORY OF PHOTOGRAPHY: AN INTERNATIONAL QUARTERLY, January 1977, p. 79 - 83, a convincing argument is presented that the first copy Daguerre saw of his manual on September 7, the date of his first public presentation, bore the imprint of Susse Frères, not Giroux.

Bellier de la Chavignerie, Manuel Bibliographie du Photographe Francais, 1863, No. 4, listing this imprint and not Giroux. In the title by Chevalier, among the earliest daguerreian manuals, he states a brief history of his involvement with Niépce and Daguerre, the camera and lenses that he manufactures and their superiority to others being marketed, and his own improvements upon Daguerre's process. Although WorldCat locates upwards of 20 copies of this work, it is uncommon and certainly one of the earliest to expand upon Daguerre's process. Roosens and Salu No. 2827. Bellier de la Chavignerie, Manuel Bibliographie du Photographe Francais, 1863, fails to locate this manual. Amédée Queslin (1819 - 1883) an optical instrument maker, assumed the shop and living quarters on rue de la Bourse of the deceased P.M.A Chevallier, the instrument maker and optician to the King in 1842. His 1843 manual on the daguerreotype lists for sale cameras, lenses and other optical instruments of his design and manufacture, and other articles and chemicals needed for the daguerreian process, as well as his own improvements upon the process.

        REPORT, ON THE AFFAIRS OF BRITISH NORTH AMERICA, From the Earl of Durham, Her Majesty's High Commissioner &c &c &c

      Toronto: Robert Stanton. Handsomely re-bound in recent "pebbled" red leather. 1839. 1st edition. hb. 8vo, pp. 142, iv. . This document, commonly known as the "Durham report", is one of the essential documents in the history of Quebec, Ontario, Canada, and the British Empire. Lambton (1792-1840), first Earl of Durham, assisted in the preparation of the first Reform Bill, and was, at various times, ambassador to Russia, Germany, and Austria. In 1838, he was appointed both high commissioner for the adjustment of important questions concerning what was then called Upper and Lower Canada, and Governor-General of the said provinces. Quoting from the first page of the subsequent report, he observes: "While the present state of things is allowed to last, the actual inhabitants of these Provinces have no security for person or property - no enjoyment of what they possess - no stimulus to industry." His report contained the famous assessment that Lower Canada (i.e., Quebec) consisted of "two nations warring within the bosom of a single state". (Not much has changed since). His report was first published as a parliamentary paper, and re-published in Toronto the same year in a format more condusive to general reading. Such is our offering. There is an early signature and date (Toronto 20th Dec 1839) to the front free endpaper, an early inscription to the title page, with signature below. The text shows occasional foxing. The recent re-binding is quite luxurious, and in excellent condition, with "Lord Durham's Report - 1839" stamped on the spine in gilt. The marbled endpapers have small tears but the binding is holding nicely. .

        Punka Indians Encamped

      1839. BODMER, Karl. Punka Indians Encamped on the Banks of the Missouri. London: Ackermann (Bougeard), 1839. Single sheet, plate impression measures 12-1/2 by 9-1/2 inches; window matted, entire piece measures 23 by 20 inches. $1500.Original hand-colored aquatint Plate XI, third state, one of the 33 “vignettes” from Karl BodmerÂ’s magnificent picture-atlas, produced for Maximilian Wied-NeuwiedÂ’s Travels in the Interior of North America (1839-1843).MaximilianÂ’s monumental work was originally published in German (1839-41); a French translation followed in 1840-43 and an English translation in 1843. A picture-atlas of eighty-one aquatint plates (48 folios and 33 “vignettes”) after paintings by Karl Bodmer was issued in Paris, and accompanied all three of these editions. The picture volume is now regarded as one of the most comprehensive and memorable visual surveys of North America ever produced. The images provide an authentic glimpse into 19th-century America by one of the most eminent European artists. Unlike some other painters, Bodmer tried not to romanticize his subjects, but show them as they really were. Perhaps the most important leg of MaximilianÂ’s travels started from St. Louis and proceeded up the treacherous Missouri River along the line of forts established by the American Fur Company. “On 11 May 1833 a small group of Ponca men seen on the riverbank were invited aboard the steamship Yellow StoneÂ… The ship reached their camp the following day and paused just long enough to allow the Ponca passengers to disembark” (Marsha V. Gallagher). The print is vignette number XI, with the three requisite imprint statements and captions in German, French and English. Third state, with the date in the imprint statement and engraved by Lucas Weber. Ruud, 267. See Howes M443a. Wagner-Camp 76. Streeter III:1809. Hand coloring very vivid, only light foxing to margins (not affecting image). A splendid print.

        Mittheilungen aus den Memoiren des Satan.

      Stuttgart, Gebrüder Franck. (Band 4: Bunzlau, Appuns Buchhandlung) 1826-1839. - 4 Bände. Band 1-3: 12°, Band 4: 8°. 2 Bl., 224 (recte 324) S., 8 n.n. S. Anhang (=Anzeigen); 2 Bl., 312 S., 4 n.n. S. Anhang; 4 n.n. Bl., S. (11)-336 (von 360); 250 S., 1 S. Inhalt. Uniforme Pappbände um 1850 mit schwarzen, goldgeprägten Rückenschildern, etwas Rückenvergoldung und schwarz/grauen Marmorpapierbezügen. Goedeke IX,194, 2. - IX,205,15,1b und 205,15.2. - Borst 1488 (ohne den 4. Teil). - Erste Ausgabe aller vier Bände. Band 1 erschien anonym "Herausgegeben von ****f.". - Band 2 "Herausgegeben von Wilhelm Hauff" - Band 3 "Herausgegeben von Wit, genannt von Dörring" - Band 4 mit dem Reihentitel mit dem Zusatz "fortgesetzt von H. von Canitz" sowie dem Haupttitel "Streifereien des Satans auf der Erde. Aus dem diabolischen übersetzt von H. von Canitz". - Wahrscheinlich der modernste Text von Hauff. Ein Produkt der Kalkulation der Bedürfnisse seiner Zeitgenossen, zusammengetragen aus Vorbildern bei E.T.H. Hoffmann, Tieck, den Esoterikern um damit Göthe, die Juden und alle anderen zu ärgern und seinen Verleger zum Narren zu halten. - Kein Wunder wurden die Mittheilungen nach dem frühen Tode ihres Verfassers, 1827, von fremder Hand weitergeführt. Hauff hatte schliesslich mit seiner Parodie "Der Mann im Mond" auf den Erfolgsautor H.Clauren das Vorbild geliefert. Der dritte Teil aus der Feder des "Marodeurs der Politik und Litteratur" (ADB) Wit (1800 - 1868) entstand in der Zeit als Wit mit Heinrich Heine in Kontakt stand. Der Band von Wit ist in zwei Teile geteilt: "Der Teufel in München und der gefallene Engel. Phantasie und Erzählung begründet im Leben der neuesten Zeit". - und - "Auch aus meinem Leben. Ein Bruchstück.". - Unser Exemplar mit einigen mit Tinte durchgestrichenen Zensur(?)stellen. Bei unserem Exemplar fehlen die letzten 24 Seiten. Der Text scheint in seiner Logik auf Seite 324 abgeschlossen zu sein, wird aber, nach 34 Seiten mit Anzeigen auf Seite 360 noch kurz auf 13 Zeilen beendet. In den Anzeigen werden u.a. auch die Titel von Hauff beworben. Es ist anzunehmen, dass Wit, als geübter Viel- und Schnellschreiber nicht nur die Fortsetzung, sondern auch die Anzeigentexte verfasste. Wahrscheinlich hat der Buchbinder, angesichts von 35 Seiten Anzeigen, ohne genau zu schauen, den Text unbeabsichtigt gekürzt. Wir legen die fehlenden Blätter in Kopie bei. Der vierte Teil, weit weg von Stuttgart, in Schlesien gedruckt, stammt aus der Feder des Herausgebers der Schriften von Wilhelm Waiblinger, von dem biographisch sonst nichts bekannt zu sein scheint. Der vierte Band mit mit preussischem (?) Zensurstempel auf dem Titelblatt. Seiten 135 - 38 mit kleinem Papiereinriss am oberen Rand (ca. 1 cm). - Bei allen Bänden Papier durchgehend, stellenweise stärker stockfleckig und gebräunt. Einbandkanten leicht bestossen. - Der vierte Teil im Format abweichend. - Komplett mit beiden Fortsetzungen sehr selten.

        Mitchell's Traveller's Guide Through the United States

      1839. MITCHELL, Samuel Augustus. Mitchell's Traveller's Guide Through the United States, Containing the Principal Cities, Towns, &c. Alphabetically Arranged; Together with the Stage, Steam-Boat, Canal, and Rail-Road Routes. Philadelphia: Thomas, Cowperwait, & Co., 1839. 12mo (3-1/4 by 5-1/2 inches), publisher's red patterned cloth. $1600.Early edition of this guide, with very large hand-colored map at rear of the eastern United States as far west as the Missouri Territory and eastern Texas.Samuel Augustus Mitchell was one of the most prolific publishers and editors of geographical manuals, maps, and textbooks in the United States, employing upwards to 250 artisans and writers. Around 1830 Mitchell settled in Philadelphia, where the best cartographic printing houses could be found, with the intention of improving the aesthetics of geography texts and atlases. His first effort, A New American Atlas, appeared in 1831. ""Mitchell entered the field of cartography at an opportune moment, when national expansion, following the expeditions of Lewis and Clark, Pike, and others, stimulated an interest in the newer parts of the country and created a market for travel maps and guidebooks. He remains an outstanding figure in the development of American geography"" (DAB). ""Mitchell's ability to identify and correlate original sources, as well as material from other map makers, was evidentÂ… His maps were among the most popular and influential in distributing new knowledge about American expansion to a growing, eager audience"" (Martin & Martin, 135). Traveller's guides such as this one were very popular in the 19th century—small volumes that could be slipped into a pocket, filled with detailed information on the distances of each stage of trips by different forms of transportation. With inset maps of Cincinnati, Albany, New Orleans, Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington and Charleston. Issued under various titles; the map alone was first issued in 1832, and the accompanying text was first issued in 1834. See Howes M690. Small early bookplate, contemporary owner signature and marginalia to front endpapers.Map with expert paper repairs to folds, with just the slightest bit of loss to a few of them, not affecting readability. Binding with restoration to spin ends. An extremely good copy.

        Washinga Sahba's Grave

      1839. BODMER, Karl. Washinga SahbaÂ’s Grave on BlackbirdÂ’s Hills. London: Ackermann (Bougeard), 1839. Single sheet, plate impression measures 12-1/2 by 9-1/2 inches; window matted, entire piece measures 23 by 20 inches. $1500.Original hand-colored aquatint Plate XII, third state, one of the 33 “vignettes” from Karl BodmerÂ’s magnificent picture-atlas, produced for Maximilian Wied-NeuwiedÂ’s Travels in the Interior of North America (1839-1843).MaximilianÂ’s monumental work was originally published in German (1839-41); a French translation followed in 1840-43 and an English translation in 1843. A picture-atlas of eighty-one aquatint plates (48 folios and 33 “vignettes”) after paintings by Karl Bodmer was issued in Paris, and accompanied all three of these editions. The picture volume is now regarded as one of the most comprehensive and memorable visual surveys of North America ever produced. The images provide an authentic glimpse into 19th-century America by one of the most eminent European artists. Unlike some other painters, Bodmer tried not to romanticize his subjects, but show them as they really were. Perhaps the most important leg of MaximilianÂ’s travels started from St. Louis and proceeded up the treacherous Missouri River. “On 7 May 1833 Maximilian reported that the Yellow Stone was passing by ‘the foothills that are called BlackbirdÂ’s Hills because here the famous Omaha chief Wha-schingÂ’gha-sa-ba [Blackbird] is buriedÂ… [He] asked to be buried upright, astride his favorite mule” (Marsha V. Gallagher). The print is vignette number XII, with the three requisite imprint statements and captions in German, French and English. Third state, with the date in the imprint statement and engraved by Lucas Weber. Ruud, 269. See Howes M443a. Wagner-Camp 76. Streeter III:1809. Hand coloring very vivid, only light foxing to margins (not affecting image). A lovely print.

        Rotterdam plattegrond - Temminck.

      "Platte grond der stad Rotterdam, vervaardigd volgens kadastrale plans, opgedragen aan Edel Achtbare Heeren Burgemeester en Wethouders dezer stad."Uitgegeven in 1839 door L.F. Temminck, in koper gegraveerd door D. Veelwaard en Zonen, gedrukt op vier bladen door Wed. Koning & Brugman. Deels later, deels in de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (prent) 75 x 123 cm.Steeds weer bestond bij Rotterdamse stadsbestuurders behoefte aan een grootschalige betrouwbare kaart waarop ook alle percelen zijn aangeduid. In 1827 wordt door de fabrieksmeesters, die de directie voeren over de Fabricage, de technische dienst van de stad, bij Burgemeesters en Wethouders aangedrongen op het laten vervaardigen van een plattegrond van de gemeente. Pas twaalf jaar later wordt deze wens vervuld door Leonardus Temminck, controleur en bewaarder van het kadaster van Rotterdam. Aan het stadsbestuur worden vijf gekleurde en vijf ongekleurde exemplaren geleverd.Sinds de verschijning van de vorige kaart (in 1800) is het gebied van de gemeente behoorlijk uitgebreid. De gemeente Cool is ingelijfd, West-Blommersdijk en Oost-Blommerswijk en Rubroek staan nu voor het eerst op een plattegrond.Door de zeer dichte bebouwing van de binnenstad is het Temminck, door het ontbreken van gegeven daarover, niet overal mogelijk geweest de onbebouwde gedeeltes van de percelen weer te geven, maar slechts de kadastrale perceelgrenzen. Het grondgebruik buiten de singels is op de kaart wel mooi aangeduid. Met name van de tuinaanleg wordt een prachtig beeld gegeven. Een groot aantal straten, stegen en wateren, openbare gebouwen, bedrijven en buitenplaatsen zijn aangeduid. Dit en de zeer precieze kartering, maken deze kaart tot een uiterst belangrijke bron van kennis van Rotterdam aan de vooravond van de ingrijpende veranderingen, die de stad in de negentiende eeuw zou ondergaan.Prijs: ?5.950,- (incl. lijst).

The other four plate volumes were published over a period of six years and are often found separately. With 91 pages of descriptive text. Early ownership inscription of J.M.E.

""With the name of the artist—""C.
