        Veduta generale di Piazza Castello in Torino, presa dal lato di Via Accademia delle Scienze (circa 1840).

      1840. Incisione in rame (mm 228x900 e ampi margini), con intensa e stupenda colorazione coeva a tempera e acquerello, probabilmente del Bossoli medesimo. Il margine sui quattro lati è dipinto in nero, con la scritta in maiuscole rosse "Torino" al centro di quello inferiore. La coloritura del margine inferiore copre le firme "C. Bossoli dis." a sinistra, "F. Citterio inc." a destra, e degli editori "Ant. Vallardi e Ferd. Artaria". Grandiosa veduta prospettica della piazza, presa a volo d'uccello. E' senza dubbio uno dei capolavori dell'iconografia di Torino ad opera di un grande pittore dell'800. Esemplare in perfetto stato di conservazione, in cornice d'epoca in noce con battuta dorata di circa 1 cm. Assai rara a reperirsi in tali condizioni.

        Merkwürdige Erscheinung. Mit obrigkeitlicher Genehmigung wird einem hohen Adel und hochverehrten Publikum ... ein in Europa noch nie gesehener Afrikaner von der kriegerischen Nation der Ashantées vorgezeigt. (Unterzeichner:) W. Philadelphia.

      München, ca. 1840. Einblattdruck mit Überschrift in Holzschnitt und typographischem Text. Blattgr.: 25,5 x 41,5 cm. Der hier "ausgestellte" stolze Krieger wird unter dem Namen Hoongoo Rhyhoo dem Publikum präsentiert, was wohl seine Exotik noch erhöhen soll. Tatsächlich hieß er Congori, genannt Thomas Roos. Er scheint 1843/44 verstorben zu sein, entsprechend der Akte im Bestand des Preußischen Kulturbesitzes, "Regulierung des Nachlasses des in Iserlohn (Rheinprovinz) verstorbenen Afrikaners...", die auch eine Forderung an den Menageriebesitzer Wolfgang Philadelphia in Amsterdam enthält. - Congori wurde laut des Textes von einem holländischen Schiff unter Kapitän Jansen von Cap Coast nach Amsterdam verbracht; er wird bei der Vorstellung eine Probe seiner Körperkraft ablegen, aber da er "schon einige Zeit mit Europäern Umgang genossen hat, so ist sein Charakter bereits sehr gemildert und von gutmüthiger Art". - Papierbedingt gebräunt.

Durch unsern gemeinschaftlichen Freund, Konzertmeister Müller, weiß ich längst, mit welcher Einsicht, und welchem begeisterten Eifer Sie sich der Führung Ihres OrchesterVerein's hingeben, und welches großen Verdienst sich dieser Verein um die Veredlung des Kunstgeschmackes in Magdeburg erworben hat. Ich fühle mich daher durch Ihren freundliche Aufforderung wahrhaft geehrt, und würde ihr mit Freuden Folge geleistet haben, wann ich nicht binnen wenig Tagen schon eine weite Reise unternehmen müßte. - Künftiges Jahr indeß hoffe ich die Vaterstadt wieder zu besuchen, und vielleicht findt sich als eine Gelegenheit Ihrem freundlichen Wunsche nachzukommen. Genehmigen Sie indeß geehrter Herr die Versicherungen der ausgezeichneten Hochachtung und Werthschätzung Ihres ergebenster Giacomo Meyerbeer (Translation) Through our common friend Konzertmeister Müller, I have long known what vision and what inspired enthusiasm you devote to the direction of your Orchestral Society, and how much is due to this Society in improving artistic taste in Magdeburg. I feel truly honoured by your kind invitation, and would have been delighted to take it up, had I not within a few days to undertake a long tour. - However next year I hope to visit your native city again, and then perhaps the opportunity will present itself to fulfil your kind wish Meanwhile accept, dear Sir, the assurance of the especial respect and esteem of your most devoted Giacomo Meyerbeer Berlin, 12th July 1840. Meyerbeer was the most frequently performed opera composer of the 19th century. A child prodigy pianist, he went on to study opera in Italy. His innovative works combined German technique with Italian style, and from about 1817 he used 'Giacomo' in place of 'Jacob'.as his first name. From 1824-1831 he was mostly in Berlin, then in Paris. His long and fruitful association with librettist Eugène Scribe, 1791-1861, began in 1827. His greatest work is 'Les Huguenots', 1836. In 1842 Friedrich Wilhelm IV appointed him Generalmusikdirektor in Berlin, and he divided his time between the two capitals. Karl Theodor Müller was Konzertmeister at Brunswick. Meyerbeer had seen him there as recently as the beginning of April, to oversee a production. Müller and his brothers Theodor (1799-1855), Franz (1808-1855) and August (1802-1875) were a famous String Quartet. In 1828 they give the first public performance of Beethoven's Op. 131. Franz Fesca, whose instrument was the violin, came from a family of musicians well known in Magdeburg. On the 18th March 1844, in Berlin, he played Beethoven's Kreutzer Sonata, with Liszt at the piano.

        Alaric at Rome. A Prize Poem, Recited in Rugby School, June XII, MDCCCXL

      Rugby: Combe and Crossley, 1840. First edition. 8vo. Publisher's printed pink wrappers. Faint vertical crease at center, light edgewear. In custom red morocco pull-off case. First edition. 8vo. Arnold's Debut, Inscribed. The first edition of Matthew Arnold's first work, his Rugby School prize poem on the conquest of Rome by the Visigoth Alaric I in 410 AD. Unusual for a prize poem, the work was published anonymously and was not identified as Arnold's until Edmund Gosse made the attribution in 1888. One of the rarest literary debuts, of which Wise noted "Alaric at Rome holds a high place in the rank of modern poetical rarities." This copy inscribed on the front wrapper, "E. Armitage Esqr. from the Author." The recipient, Edward Armitage, was a fellow pupil at Rugby. Arnold had entered Rugby in 1837, where his father was headmaster. The only other copy known to bear an inscription by Arnold ("Miss Ward, 1840") is at the Morgan Library. It is difficult to take an accurate census of copies, as Wise muddied the waters with his facsimile - which he later passed off as genuine. OCLC locates 15 copies and ABPC lists two copies - one in 1979 at Christie's London, and the present copy. Ashley I, p. 8: "holds a high place in the rank of modern poetical rarities"; Hayward 255; Smart, p. 1. Provenance: Dr. J.B. Clemens of New Jersey (two typed letters to Clemens, as prospective purchaser of the book, from Luthur S. Livingston of Dodd, Mead & Company, New York, dated 17 August and 7 September, 1905, loosely inserted); sold Parke-Bernet, New York, 8 January 1945, lot 57 for $400; exhibited: Grolier Club (1950s exhibition card describing it as "the only presentation copy known"); sold, Halsted B.

Le Marabout"Beraldi assigns between 7000 and 8000 designs to Victor Adam [1801-1865]?A Parisian by birth, he remained in the capital all his life, but this did not prevent him from drawing negroes, Turks, Chinese, and other peoples all over the world in his Paris studio. He was famous, indeed, as a faiseur de bonshommes, that is to say a specialist in adding groups of small figures to the foreground of architectural or landscape drawings by other artists?His immense production contains many amusing albums concerning the life of the time" (Ray, The Art of the French Illustrated Book, p. 194).Jean Victor Adam (1801-1866) was a French painter and lithographer. Born in Paris he was the son of Jean Adam, an esteemed engraver. During the years 1814 to 1818 he studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, and also in the ateliers of Meynier and Régnault. In 1819 he exhibited 'Herminia succouring Tancred.' He was almost immediately afterwards employed to paint various subjects for the Museum at Versailles, amongst which are, 'The Entry of the French into Mainz,' 'The Battle of Varroux,' 'The Taking of Menin, 'The Battle of Castiglione,' 'The Passage of the Cluse,' 'The Battle of Montebello,' 'The Capitulation of Meiningen;' the last three in association with Alaux. He also exhibited down to the year 1838: 'Henry IV., after the Battle of Coutras,' 'Trait of Kindness in the Duke de Berri,' 'The Postillion,' 'The Vivandiere,' 'The Road to Poissy,' 'The Return from the Chase,' 'Horse-fair at Caen,' and numerous other subjects. He then retired from publicity, till 1846, when he appeared as the exhibitor of some works in lithography, to which branch of art he afterwards restricted himself. In this line he produced a lithographic album, 'Views in the Environs of Paris,' 'Studies of Animals for an edition of Buffon,' &c. He obtained a gold medal in 1824, a second cla [Attributes: First Edition]
