        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Frankfurt a. M., 29. XI. 1839. - 1 S. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-8vo. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief). An den Sänger Ludwig Cramolini (1805-1884) in Hamburg: "Sollte sich Cramolini nicht mehr erinnern, daß ein Gollmick irgendwo in der Welt herumfährt, so giebt derselbe hiermit ein Lebenszeichen von sich, u. zugleich ein Zeichen seiner alten Lieb u. Achtung. Zugleich spricht er die Hoffnung aus, daß auf dem Baume unserer jungen Freundschaft ein Reislein 'Wiedersehen' gepfropft wurde, wenn Cramolini Aufmerksamkeit u. Werth auf folgende Notiz legt. Noch immer wohne ich mit Meek in einem Hause, der wie Du weißt seitdem Director unseres Theaters geworden. Da sich nun gestern abend im engeren Kreise der lebhafte Wunsch aussprach, einen tüchtigen Spieltenor hier zu gewinnen (da Nissen abgeht) u. man sich Deiner mit Theilnahme erinnerte, so ergreife ich denn sogleich die Feder, Dir einen Wink davon zu geben, der, sympathisierte er vielleicht mit Deiner Idee, zu reellen Resultaten führen dürfte. Im Falle Du Dich an die [.] Direction wenden würdest, garantiere ich Dir eine willkommene Antwort. Abgesehen von dem größeren Lebensinteresse, freute ich selbst mich specialiter ungemein, mit Dir m. Freund in unseren gesegneten für Kunst ganz behaglichen Fluren ein recht freysames Seyn durchleben zu können [.]". - Karl Gollmick war seit 1818 am Frankfurter Stadttheater tätig, zunächst als Paukenschläger im Orchester, später als Korrepetitor. Er komponierte, übertrug zahlreiche Opern aus dem Englischen, Französischen und Italienischen und bearbeitete sie neu. Er trat außerdem als Librettist, als Verfasser von Lehrbüchern, musiktheoretischen Aufsätzen und Lustspielen hervor. - Papierbedingt etwas gebräunt.

        Imitation de Jesus-Christ / traduction nouvelle par M. L. B. (Louis-Charles Buquet) du College Stanislas

      Paris: J. Hetzel et Paulin 1839 - "Dessins d'apres Overbeck, Klein, Gerard Seguin. Ornements par Ad. Feart. Dessins graves par M. Breviere. Ornaments graves par Mm. Andrew, Best et Leloir. Typographie Lacrampe et Comp." 4 ½ in. x 5 ½ in. 584 pp. Morocco leather over boards with metallic clasps and brass bosses. Decorative metallic elongations of the clasps and metallic corner pieces. Gilt titling on the spine; blind-stamped designs on the spine and both covers. Red silk end-papers. Six full-page illustrations by Louis Henri Breviere; ornaments, the title page, chapter headings, and initial letters by Adrien Feart and by Gerard Seguin. All edges gilt. The provenance of this volume is of great interest. It belonged to a monastery of Ursuline Sisters at Boulogne-sur-Mer in France. One of the sisters added the silk end-papers (which are still firmly in place) and illuminated (expertly and beautifully) the title page, six chapter headings, and 52 of the initials in France sometime between 1839 and 1850. The paints and colors are very similar to those used in medieval Books of Hours and are still fresh and bright. The book was brought to Cleveland in 1850 when a small group of Ursuline sisters was invited by the first bishop of Cleveland, Father Rappe, to establish a system of schools. The Sister, whose name is lost to the record, never completed her work on the book since her duties (including the establishment of the schools) consumed all of her time. A very rare copy of a very rare edition. Worldcat shows six copies, none of which is illuminated as is this copy. Text is in French. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Florula Capraiae sive Enumeratio Plantarum in insula Capraia vel sponte nascentium, vel ad utilitatem latius excultarum, auctoribus Iosepho Moris et Iosepho De Notaris.

      Ex Regio Typographeo, 1839. In - 4° (cm 31 x 23,5), leg. in mezza tela con le brossure originali applicate ai piatti, pp. 2 bianche - con invio autografo non firmato degli autori all'avvocato Luigi Colla - , 244 di testo ed indice; alla fine VI tavv. incise in rame, ed un ultimo foglio bianco. Prima delle tavole è rilegato un opuscolo del MORIS, di formato leggermente inferiore, dal titolo: 'Stirpes Sardoae novae aut minus notae' (stesso editore, senza data), di pp. 6 non numerate. Leggerissimo aloncino all'angolo superiore esterno delle pp. da 11 a 160 circa; per il resto ottimo esemplare di questa rarissima opera, abbastanza fresco e in barbe. Giuseppe DE NOTARIS (Milano, 1805 - Roma, 1877) si laureò in medicina all'università di Pavia, e immediatamente dopo la laurea si diede agli studi di Botanica; ottenne un incarico all'università di Torino e all'orto botanico del Valentino. Nel 1843 si trasferì alla Università di Genova come Professore di Botanica e Direttore dell'Orto botanico, e nel 1858 fondò nel capoluogo ligure il primo Sodalizio italiano di carattere prettamente botanico, la Società Crittogamologica Italiana. Dal 1863 fu rettore dell'Ateneo genovese. Su richiesta del Ministro della Pubblica Istruzione, nel 1872, si trasferì a Roma per istituirvi la cattedra di Botanica. Suo interesse botanico prevalente fu lo studio e le ricerche sulle Crittogame. Insieme agli allievi Francesco Baglietto e Vincenzo de Cesati fondò l'importantissima raccolta dell'Erbario Crittogamico Italiano. Dopo l'unità d'Italia insegnò a Napoli e, dal 1872, a Roma, dove tenne la cattedra di Botanica e fondò l'Orto botanico. Giuseppe Giacinto MORIS (Orbassano, 1796 - Torino, 1869) si laureò in Medicina presso l'Università di Torino nel 1815; allievo di Giovanni Battista Balbis si appassionò agli studi botanici. Nel 1822 si trasferì a Cagliari come Professore di Clinica medica e nel 1829 rientrò a Torino come Professore di Medicina, per essere infine nominato, nel 1831, Direttore dell'Orto Botanico, carica che mantenne fino alla morte. Nel maggio del 1848 era stato nominato Senatore del Regno di Sardegna. Luigi COLLA (Torino, 1766 - 1848) fu uno degli avvocati più noti della sua epoca; amico dei più autorevoli botanici del tempo, botanico appassionato egli stesso, acquistò un podere a Rivoli dove iniziò a coltivare le piante indagandone la struttura e definendone i sistemi di coltivazione.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Aarau, 30. VIII. 1839. - 2 SS. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt. 4to. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "Ihr gütiges Schreiben vom 9. Aug. kam mir erst heute zu. Darum beeil' ich mich, Ihnen sogleich zu antworten, damit Sie wenigstens nicht durch meine Schuld, in Ihrem schönem, vaterländischen Unternehmen um einen Tag verzögert werden; und um so mehr, da ich fühle, daß ich unfähig bin, eine Aufgabe zu lösen, mit der mich Ihr gewiß unverdientes Zutrauen beehren will. Wer könnte nach Johannes Müller die Scenen, welche der Prospectus andeutet, treuer darstellen, oder Neues beizufügen, oder edler ausmalen? Am wenigstens gewiss ich! [ ]". - Zschokke schloss sich 1788 einer wandernden Theatertruppe an, für die er Theaterstücke schrieb, von denen die dramatische Bearbeitung seines Romans "Abällino, der große Bandit" (1793) erfolgreich war. Seit 1790 studierte er Theologie in Frankfurt/Oder, war nach der Promotion zum Dr. phil. 1792 Privatdozent und reiste 1795 in die Schweiz, wo er sich 1796 niederließ. Zschokke leitete zunächst ein Philanthropin in Reichenau, trat 1798 in den Dienst der helvetischen Regierung, ging 1802 nach Aarau, wurde dort Oberforst- und Bergrat, war 1815-41 Mitglied des Großen Rats und gehörte 1831 dem Verfassungsrat an, ehe er aargauischer Tagsatzungsbeamter wurde. Zschokke war politischer Publizist liberaler Tendenz und gab mehrere Zeitschriften (u.a. "Aufrichtiger und wohlerfahrener Schweizerbote", 1798-1800, seit 1804, "Erheiterungen. Eine Monatsschrift für gebildete Leser", 1811-26) heraus.

Ce rapport de François Arago publié dans les "Comptes rendus des séances de l'Académie des Sciences" (p.250 à 267), donna à la découverte de Daguerre son statut officiel. Ce volume contient aussi la lettre de Daguerre à Arago intitulée "Des procédés photogéniques considérés comme moyens de gravure" (p.423 à 429), ainsi que d'autres notes ou communications relatives à la photographie. C'est dans la table des matières qu'apparaît pour la première fois le mot PHOTOGRAPHIE, avec son sens "moderne". Le dictionnaire historique de la langue a bien retenu cette année - là (1839) pour l'apparition du mot dans le langage courant. De plus, il suffit de consulter la table des matières du premier trimestre des "Comptes - rendus" (t.8) pour constater que ce mot n'y figure pas, alors qu'on y trouve celui de PHOTOGENIE qui renvoie à Chambre obscure et à papier sensible. Cette observation semble n'avoir jamais été mise en évidence; mais elle est d'une telle importance qu'il n'est pas inutile de le souligner.

(c.1839), in - 12, carré, 23 planches, cartonnage de l'éditeur en papier vert orné de motifs de feuillages en relief, gravure collée au centre du premier plat représentant l'origine du dessin, Une des premières descriptions de la technique du daguerréotype au sein d'un ouvrage de vulgarisation. Recueil de 23 lithographies montées "en accordéon". Elles illustrent par des scènes animées l'histoire des grandes inventions à l'usage de la jeunesse : le dessin (sur la couverture), l'astronomie, le verre, le papier, la soie, les horloges, la poudre à canon, la boussole, l'imprimerie, le télescope, la circulation du sang, le ballon, le télégraphe, la lithographie, etc. La dernière illustration de ce recueil concerne la photographie, elle porte la légende suivante : "Daguerreotipe [sic]. Expérience publique faite par Mr Daguerre ... Au 19e siècle notre compatriote [Jacques] Charles fit les premiers essais de l'art photographique mais son secret mourut avec lui. De nouveaux essais furent tentés depuis par les Anglais, mais les images produites se détruisaient au grand jour. M.Mrs Daguerre et Niepce sont parvenus aujourd'hui au moyen d'une plaque d'argent recouverte d'une préparation chimique à fixer les images de la chambre noire". Le livre est signé, sur la page de la vaccine : "Chez Tirpenne, Editeur rue St. Jacques, 26". Jean - Louis Tirpenne, lithographe et graveur de formation débuta sa carrière vers 1830 et fut aussi imprimeur. Elève de Bouton et de Daguerre, il s'intéressa de près aux innovations photographiques et aux possibilités que cette nouvelle technique de reproduction du réel offrait pour l'art du dessin et de la gravure (comme l'atteste sa participation à "Paris et ses environs reproduit par la daguerréotype" en 1840). Ainsi, cette suite de lithographies fait figurer, probablement pour la première fois (après le "Rapport de M. Arago sur le Daguerréotype" qui fut publié en 1839 à Paris chez Bachelier), le mot "daguerreotype" au sein d'un ouvrage de vulgarisation destiné à un public non spécialisé. Très rare plaquette

        OUR MESS: JACK HINTON, The Guardsman

      1839. [complete in 13-in-12 serial part] Edited by Harry Lorrequer. Illustrated by Phiz. Dublin: William Curry, Jun. and Co. [etc.], January-December 1842. 13-in-12 monthly serial parts, in original pink pictorial wrappers. First Edition, in the original 13-in-12 serial parts, of this early Charles Lever tale. Lever started out as a medical doctor, but during the 1830s began writing picaresque adventures during his spare time, which were published in 1839 as THE CONFESSIONS OF HARRY LORREQUER (the similarly-picaresque PICKWICK PAPERS, with illustrations likewise by "Phiz," had just been published with great success).~This title, three years later, is likewise "edited by Harry Lorrequer." The reason for the dual title is that OUR MESS was the overall title for what would be two separate tales: JACK HINTON, THE GUARDSMAN (as here), followed by TOM BURKE OF "OURS" -- which was set to begin, serially, at the conclusion of this tale. The preliminary leaves provided at the end of the final part (with title page dated 1843) show that JACK HINTON was to be Vol I of OUR MESS; TOM BURKE would occupy Vols II and III. (Interestingly, although Charles Lever's actual name is not in the serial parts, his name IS on the Vol I title page.)~Included are 26 plates by "Phiz," plus a portrait of the author in No. II (it was meant to be in Part I, which instead has a tipped-in notice that the portrait will be a month late). There are preliminary ads in most of the parts (some "Our Mess Advertiser," some otherwise, such as for "Punch"); since there is no bibliography of "perfect sets" of Lever's serial parts (as there is for Dickens's), we do not know how "complete" this suite of ads is.~Condition is generally very good-plus: as always some of the pink wrappers are faded, and there is minor wear at some wrapper extremities. We do not see any restoration or "improvement" of the parts. The plates are browned around the margins (as usual), but the images themselves are not greatly affected. See Sadleir 1415 and Wolff 4098 for the three-volume edition. Housed in a cloth clamshell case with (chipped) printed label.

FIRST EDITION WITH HALLIWELL'S INTRODUCTION AND ADDITIONS AND A BEAUTIFULLY PRESERVED COPY. 'In his preface the compiler calls himself a knight, and states that he was born and bred in England, of the town of St Albans. Although the book is real, it is widely believed that 'Sir John Mandeville' himself was not. Common theories point to a Frenchman by the name of Jehan a la Barbe (or other possibilities discussed below). The most recent scholarly work suggests that The Travels of Sir John Mandeville was "the work of Jan de Langhe, a Fleming who wrote in Latin under the name Johannes Longus and in French as Jean le Long."] Jan de Langhe was born in Ypres early in the 1300s and by 1334 had become a Benedictine monk at the abbey of Saint-Bertin in Saint-Omer which was about 20 miles from Calais. After studying law at the University of Paris, de Langhe returned to the abbey and was elected abbot in 1365. He was a prolific writer and avid collector of travelogues, right up to his death in 1383. John de Mandeville crossed the sea on 1322; had traversed by way of Turkey (Asia Minor), Armenia the Little (Cilicia) and the Great, Tartary, Persia, Syria, Arabia, Egypt upper and lower, Libya, great part of Ethiopia, Chaldea, Amazonia, India the Less, the Greater and the Middle, and many countries about India; had often been to Jerusalem, and had written in Romance as more generally understood than Latin. In the body of the work, we hear that he had been at Paris and Constantinople; had served the Sultan of Egypt for a long time in his wars against the Bedouin, and had been offered, and declined, a princely marriage and a great estate on condition of renouncing Christianity, and had left Egypt under Sultan Melech Madabron (al-Muzaffar Sayf-ad-Din Hajji I who reigned in 1346-1347); had been at Mount Sinai, and had visited the Holy Land with letters under the great seal of the sultan, which gave him extraordinary facilities; had been in Russia, Livonia, Kraków, Lithuania, "en roialme daresten" (Dristra or Silistra in Bulgaria), and many other parts near Tartary, but not in Tartary itself; had drunk of the Well of Youth at Polombe (Quilon on the Malabar coast), and still seemed to feel the better for it; had taken astronomical observations on the way to Lamory (Sumatra), as well as in Brabant, Germany, Bohemia and still farther north; had been at an isle called Pathen in the Indian Ocean; had been at Cansay (Hangchow-fu) in China, and had served the emperor of China for fifteen months.had been through a haunted valley, which he places near "Milstorak" (i.e. Malasgird in Armenia); had been driven home against his will in 1357 by arthritic gout; and had written his book as a consolation for his "wretched rest".' Copies of this work are scarce in the marketplace. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Binding-title:] Egypt & Nubia.

      Cairo [and elsewhere in Egypt and Nubia], 1838-1839. - Double Crown folio (48 x 36.5 cm). [37] ll. including title-leaf and 7 blanks, plus 16 loosely inserted ll. Album containing 42 pencil and other drawings (a few partly coloured) and 3 squeezes, some on the album leaves and some loosely inserted, mostly of ancient Egyptian and Nubian architecture, sculpture, bas-reliefs and hieroglyphic inscriptions, but also with a few botanical drawings and landscapes with buildings. Most have English-language captions in brown ink and are signed and dated 1838 to 1839. New black half morocco, on recessed cords, title and double fillets in gold on spine, using mid-19th-century marbled paper for the sides (blue-green Spanish-marble with black and white veins). An album of drawings (and squeezes of bas reliefs) made by William Robertson on a journey from Cairo in December 1838 down the Nile into Nubia, reaching as far south as the present-day Egyptian-Sudanese border region, including the temples of Abu Simbel, in January 1839, then returning via Philae, Karnak and other sites to Thebes in February 1839. They give very detailed views of numerous buildings, sculptures, bas-reliefs and hieroglyphic inscriptions, as well as more distant views of landscapes with buildings and three botanical drawings. While Robertson made most of his drawings on site, he drew the Temple at Luxor after a drawing by Achille Émile Prisse d'Avennes (1807-1879) who began exploring and drawing the ancient Egyptian sites in 1836 and published many of his drawings in 1847. The squeezes of bas-reliefs are of special interest, for they preserve a very precise record of the original with little influence from personal interpretation: the paper was wetted, pressed into the relief and allowed to dry. In addition to the three clear squeezes, a couple of the drawings also seem to have been made on flattened squeezes (some of those that survive as squeezes also have some lines drawn over them them). Since many of the ancient Egyptian sites have been looted and damaged over the years, these early drawings and squeezes provide an important record of what was there in 1838/39 and how it was situated, before the first photographs were made. The building of the old Aswan dam in 1902 caused frequent flooding and damage at the site of Philae, now an island, and most of its treasures were removed before completion of the new Aswan dam in 1970. The album has no true title-page, but the leaf before the first drawing has a slip pasted to it giving the name of the artist, dated from Cairo, December 1838. We have not identified the artist. The clergyman and historian William Robertson and his son of the same name died before 1838 and the archaeologist William Robertson Smith was not born until 1846. Thieme & Becker notes two artists named William Robertson, active two or three decades before and after the present drawings, but provides so little information that we cannot link them to either. He may possibly be the Irish-born London architect William Robertson (1770-1850), who took an early interest in Egyptian revival, but he would have been nearly seventy when these drawings were made. The loosely inserted drawings and squeezes are made on at least 8 different paper stocks, wove and laid, one of the wove stocks machine-made (the "watermark" left by the papermaking machine's belt seam appears in one sheet). A few of the original album leaves are now detached and may have been removed by the artist himself. The squeezes have inevitably been flattened in the album, but they still show the contours of the original bas-reliefs very clearly. One inserted drawing is severely foxed and one inserted floor plan is rather dirty, but in general the drawings are in very good condition. A detailed graphic record of ancient Egyptian art, architecture and hieroglyphic inscriptions, made before many of the worst depredations. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
