        Saunders' Portraits and Memoirs of Eminent Living Political Reformers. The Portraits by George Hayter and other Eminent Artists, and the Memoirs by a Distinguished Literary Character. [With] a Sketch of the Progress of Parliamentary Reform

      Published by the New Proprietor, J. Dowding, 1840. Roy. 8vo., First Edition, with a fine engraved portrait frontispiece and 27 fine engraved portrait plates (all original tissue guards present), some very light and generally inoffensive foxing, a few guards offset as intended; contemporary half calf, marbled boards, gilt back, sprinkled edges, covers lightly age-marked and rubbed at extremities else a remarkably bright, clean copy with excellent impressions of the plates. Includes (in alphabetical order, and each with a portrait): Bowring, Buller, Buxton, Byng, Codrington, Durham, Ebrington, Grey, Grote, Holland, Hume, James, Lansdowne, Leader, Melbourne, Morpeth, Mulgrave, Palmerston, Roebuck, Russell, Spencer, Talfourd, Thompson, Thomson. Wakley, Warburton and Wyse. An important text in the literature of parliamentary reform in Britain. Though the work is often noted for the excellent likenesses of its plates (the majority engraved by Mote and Hull from work by Hayter and others), it would be a mistake to under-value Saunders' assessments, which comprise a key series of contemporary appraisals of biography, character and achievement not easily found elsewhere. Text by novelist John Saunders (1810-1895); the majority of portraits by William Hayter (1792-1879); Sketch of Parliamentary Reform by William Howitt (1792-1871). Scarce, especially in this condition. . Catalogs: political economy.

        A fine collection of eleven letters

      Brixton and Hastings, 1840. 19 and a half pages, four of the letters with integral address leaves. 1 vols. Various sizes. To friends and associates. Some folds, offsetting, one repaired at fold and another laid onto a sheet but generally in excellent condition. Lithography pioneer Prout was a noted painter and well recognized for his fine lithographed works. He was a friend of Ruskin, David Roberts, Cooke, Stanfield and other eminent artists. He published several works as well as contributing to Turner's "Picturesque Views on the Southern Coast of England" and Cooke's "Views in London and Its Vicinity." Ruskin noted the quality of his work in "Elements of Drawing." ¶ Letters: 1) To HENRY BICKNELL, Saturday night, n.y., 2 1/2 pp. writing that he hopes that ill health will not prevent him from attending the meeting of the 'Graphic' "as the only opportunity I have of seeing artist friends during the year." 2) To C[YRUS] REDDING, the eminent journalist, editor and author, [undated], 1 p., declining an invitation. 3) To "My dear Sir" [watermarked 1827], 3 pp., to an ENGRAVER of his plates making suggestions (one with a small sketch) and asking that he see another proof prior to it going to the printer. From 1826 through 1834 George Cooke was engraving some of Prout's work for Cooke's "Views in London and Its Vicinity" and this letter may be to him. 4) To "My dear Sir" [watermarked 1828], 1 p., concerns framing some drawings 5) To "My dear Sir," [watermarked 1825], 1 1/2 pp., writing that he will drop in on Friday and looks forward to hearing of his travels and seeing his sketches. Also thanking him for the offer of Clerissas' drawings but resisting. 6) To E. MAGRATH, dated 28/2/33, 1 p., writing how "Eddis has succeeded to perfection in [Clarkson] Stanfield's portrait...Eddis made one feel conceit when I look'd at what I thought a fair representation, but some honest or malicious, foes or friends, have deny'd my identity in the portrait. Is not Stanfield jealous in voting against it, or is not S:P: jealous that Stanfield 's beauty should be confirm'd and his doubtful?" 7) To R[obert?] BENT, postmark 13 April 183[3?], 1 p., thanking him for the offer to notice his work in the monthly list but wishes his subscribers to have their copies before he advertises it as published. Robert Bent was a son of William Bent who founded 'Bent's Literary Advertiser.' This may refer to his most famous and important lithographic work "Fascimiles of Sketches made in Flanders and Germany and drawn on Stone." (1833). 8) To E. MAGRATH, at the Athenaeum, 20/12/36, 2 1/2 pp., commenting that HUNT's prices "are beyond what I mentiond yet the labour, & expense of models, demand something above such house-painters as Prout." The two paintings they'd preferred: "the boy praying is 15 or 17 Gs " and the "boy tired of the sermon, ranks first, & will be 20 or 25." He sends a message to STANFIELD that he's not without hope and said that something similar might be said to [J. M.] WILLIAM TURNER. 9) To his friend, the eminent dealer D. COLNAGHI, 1836, 2 1/2 pp., enquiring about the Caneletto etchings and sending regards to his friends DAVID ROBERTS & BROCKEDON 10) To S. FOX at St. Leonards, [watermarked 1839], 1 p., cancelling an appointment due to ill health 11) To "My dear Sir", 26 October 1841, 2 1/2 pp., obviously a friend writing "My promise was to send you half a dozen specimens of subjects for a vol of LITHOGRPHY. I have 3 in hand but they are not what I wish...I have nothing which would answer in a small size but gateways, towers and an old archway." He compliments the recipient on his "Woods & Forests".

        Blick auf Burg Langeneck nahe Runkelstein bei Bozen.

      1840 1840 - Aquarell über Bleistift, auf Velin, verso bezeichnet und datiert „Langeneck hinter Runkelstein bei Botzen. 23 Sept. 1840." 21,3:31 cm. Zwei Quetschfalten im Papier rechts oben. Ahlborn hatte nach einer ersten Ausbildung als Zimmermaler an der Akademie von Berlin studiert und bereiste von 1827 bis 1831 zusammen mit seinen Studienkollegen A.W.F. Schirmer (1802-1866) und A.F. Hopfgarten (1807-1896) Italien, wo er sich dem Kreis der Nazarener anschloß. Nach einigen sehr erfolgreichen Jahren in Berlin als Landschaftsmaler konvertierten er und seine Frau unter J. Führichs (1800-1876) Einfluß 1838 zum Katholizismus. Er bereiste zwischen 1840 und 1845 im Auftrag der Königin Friedrike von Hannover die ehemaligen welfischen Besitzungen in Süddeutschland und Italien. Kurz nach seiner Rückkehr übersiedelte er 1847 endgültig nach Italien. Das 19. Jahrhundert brachte die Wiederentdeckung der Burg Runkelstein durch Josef von Görres (1776-1848). Er erkannte als erster den hohen künstlerischen Wert der Malereien und machte König Ludwig I. von Bayern auf diese aufmerksam. Auf seine Veranlassung hin studierten und kopierten Hofarchitekten und Hofmaler die Burg Runkelstein und brachten Zeichnung davon mit nach München.

        Badische Landschaft; kleines Bauernhaus an bewaldetem Hang in einem Tal.

      - Bleistift, auf Velin, rechts unten bezeichnet und datiert „Baden. 1840.", verso bezeichnet „gem Carl M*". 24,8:34,7 cm. Im linken Rand vergilbt, rechts einige Braunflecken. Literatur: Eichler Z 152 (abweichende Größenangabe). Die Zeichnung entstand auf der Reise mit dem Vater Johann Friedrich Morgenstern (1777-1844), nach Karlsruhe, Baden-Baden und Umgebung. Der Landschaftsmaler Carl Morgenstern entstammte einer Frankfurter Künstlerfamilie, die über fünf Generationen tätig war. Er war der Sohn von Johann Friedrich und Vater von Friedrich Ernst Morgenstern. Neben seiner Lehrzeit beim Vater studierte er die altniederländische Malerei. Während seines Münchner Aufenthaltes 1832-1834 bildete er sich im Umgang mit den Landschaftsmalern C. Rottmann (1797-1850) und Chr. Morgenstern (1805-1867) weiter. 1833-1834 reiste er in die bayerischen und österreichischen Alpen. Seit 1834 hielt er sich in Italien auf, vorwiegend in Rom. Er unternahm Ausflüge ins Albaner- und Sabinergebirge, nach Neapel und dessen Umgebung sowie nach Sizilien. 1837 kehrte er nach Frankfurt zurück. Weitere Reisen führten ihn 1839 nach Düsseldorf, Holland, Belgien, 1841 nach Frankreich, in die Schweiz und mehrmals nach Italien. Seine italienischen Landschaftsmotive fand er in Venedig, Neapel, der Toskana, auf Capri und Sizilien, während Ansichten von Frankfurt und dem Taunus sowie Main- und Rheinlandschaften kennzeichnend für seine Darstellungen aus dem deutschen Raum wurden.

        Winkel in einem Vorratskeller in einem Haus in St. Goar.

      . Bleistift, auf Velin, rechts unten bezeichnet und datiert "St Goar 24 Sept 1840", links unten bezeichnet "gez. von J.F. Dielmann". 13,9:20,5 cm. Einriß im Unterrand restauriert. Provenienz: Sammlung J.F. Hoff, Frankfurt am Main (Maler u. Kunstschriftsteller, 1832-1913). Ein Aufenthalt Dielmanns an der Mosel im Herbst 1840 ist durch mehrere Arbeiten belegt.. Dielmann studierte unter C.F. Wendelstadt (1786-1840) am Städelschen Kunstinstitut in Frankfurt am Main und ging als Stipendiat 1835 nach Düsseldorf, wo er sich unter J.W. Schirmer (1807-1863) als Landschaftsmaler ausbildete. Bereits ab 1837 war er Mitglied der "Meisterklasse". Durch eine Einladung von G. von Reutern (1794-1865) lernte er 1841/42 die malerische Schwalm kennen. Nach seiner Rückkehr nach Frankfurt war er durch die "Modernität" seiner Genre- und Landschaftsbilder Vorbild, so für A. Burger (1824 - 1905), mit dem er 1858 die "Kronberger Malerkolonie" begründete, eine der ersten Künstlerkolonien Deutschlands.

        Journal of a Residence in Circassia during the Years 1837, 1838 and 1839

      London: Edward Moxon,, 1840. 2 volumes, octavo (209 × 130 mm). Contemporary half calf by Bromage (with his ticket), gilt banded spines, twin black labels, marbled sides, edges and endpapers. 11 lithograph plates by Warren or Barnard after Bell (3 handcoloured, 8 tinted), one line engraved plate, folding map of Circassia. Bookplate of Frederick J. Edlmann, Hawkwood (Kent) on front pastedowns, signature of the author Alan Sillitoe inscribed on each. Joints rubbed, front hinge split on volume I but sound. An attractive copy. First edition of one of "the two most important travel books to emerge from 19th century peregrinations in the Caucasus. James Stanislaus Bell, having arranged in 1836 for [the ship] Vixen to run Russia's blockade of Circassia with a cargo of salt, saw the vessel illegally impounded. Lord Palmerston declined to demand restitution, setting a precedent for the insouciance toward unwarranted aggression against north Caucasians that the West has manifested ever since. With strengthened determination, Bell took up residence in Circassia (1837-1839), accompanied for a year by Times correspondent J. A. Longworth. Both published poignant journals relating the Circassian, Ubykh, and Abkhazian mountaineers' heroic struggle to defend their independence against often wanton brutality, while giving sympathetic insights into a lifestyle that within 25 years was to vanish forever" (Speake).

Admiralsschiffe "Neptun"

      (Wien), ca. 1840.. Mit großem Holzschnitt, den voll aufgetakelten Dreidecker HMS Neptune darstellend. Auf gelbem Papier gedruckt. 83 x 56 cm. Sehr seltenes, für mich nicht nachweisbares Plakat zu einer Ausstellung im Wiener Prater: Die unterzeichnende Theresia Lindner beschreibt das 23fach verkleinerte Modell als ein "Kunstwerk (das) 6000 Fuß Schnüre am Tackelwerk trägt, über 8000 fl. C. M. kostet, und daß 8 Personen gegen 4 Jahre mit der Zustandebringung desselben unermüdlich beschäftig waren". - Das Modell war "2 Klafter und 2 Klafter hoch" (jeweils ca. 3,80 m) und war "aus Holz gebaut und mit Kupfer beschlagen". - Die 1797 vom Stapel gelaufene HMS Neptune war ein britisches Linienschiff zweiter Klasse mit 98 Kanonen auf drei Decks. Eine wichtige Rolle spielte die Neptune in der Schlacht von Trafalgar unter dem Kommando von Captain Thomas Fremantle. Sie war das dritte Schiff in der von Vizeadmiral Horatio Nelson auf der Victory angeführten Luv-Linie und wurde in schwere Kämpfe verwickelt. Nach der Schlacht schleppte sie die schwer beschädigte Victory mit Nelsons Leichnam an Bord nach Gibraltar. - Mit horizontaler und vertikaler Faltung. Links mit Steuerstempel. Insgesamt sehr gutes Exemplar!

        De la Démocratie en Amérique

      Charles Gosselin, Paris 1840 - (7 7/8 x 5 7/8 inches). Half-titles. 1 folding hand-coloured lithographic map. Expertly bound to style in green calf over contemporary marbled paper-covered boards, the spines divided into five compartments by gilt filets, black morocco lettering pieces in the second and fourth compartments The first editions of both parts of Tocqueville's famous classic Democracy in America. From the time of its first publication, Democracy in America enjoyed the reputation of being the most acute and perceptive discussion of the political and social life of the United States ever published. The first part was published in an edition of less than 500 copies in January 1835. The book was an instant and sustained success and numerous editions, many with revisions, followed quickly, so that the second part, first published in April 1840, was issued concurrently with the eighth edition of the first part. The origins of the book lie in the observations Alexis de Tocqueville made during a nine month tour of the United States starting in the spring of 1831. He was accompanied by his friend and fellow student, Gustave de Beaumont, and their original goal was to study the penitentiary system of the United States. After visiting prisons in the East, they undertook a tour of the South as far as New Orleans, ascended the Mississippi, visited the Great Lakes and Canada, and returned via New York. After writing their report on prisons, Tocqueville worked on the first part of Democracy in America in 1833-1834, publishing it in Paris in 1835 to great acclaim. The 1840 second part was equally as successful and the book remained in print throughout the 19th century: there were probably more than fifty editions in English and French published before 1900, besides numerous translations. Considering the many editions of the first part prior to the publication of the second part, along with the limited print run of the first edition of the first part, sets containing the first editions of both parts, as here, are particularly rare and desirable.

Each accompanied by brief caption relating to authorities upon which illustration was based, and this caption is on separate leaf's verso, and there is a tissue guard sheet between this and the related plate. Title page with lovely hand-colored floral border. Followed by list of subscribers, which contains 171 names, and this must surely have been the extent of the entire issue since copies are extremely scarce. (Obviously the book has been mined many times as a breaker for plates.) The original gutta percha binding has been replaced with a sewn casing that is far more durable. Modern green full morocco and marbled endpapers. Gilt edges. Offsetting onto tissues. Small discreet library stamp on versos of plates -- otherwise no signs of ex-library whatsoever.

        Autograph Letter, Signed. To Col. William Davenport

      New York: Astor House, 1840. 1 1/4 page letter with initialed postscript, with integral blank. 4to (10 x 8 inches). Old folds. SECOND SEMINOLE WAR Letter to Colonel William Davenport, 1st Infantry, United States Army West Florida, written prior to Scott's return to Florida in 1840. Scott writes "I begin to entertain hopes that the Florida War may be terminated by the negotiations ... A deputation has arrived from the Arkansaw & another, it is said, is expected at Washington from Florida. Something may come out of this double diplomacy to enable us to withdraw our troops from those miserable swamps." Unfortunately for the men, the fighting in the swamps continued for two more years. In 1842 the Seminoles remaining in Florida were allowed to stay, providing they confined themselves to the established reservation. Scott is the longest serving general of any man in American history, and many historians rank him as the best American commander of his time, as do other military men like the Duke of Wellington, who called Scott the greatest living general after Scott captured Mexico City in 1847. Scott was also the commanding officer in charge of the removal of the Cherokee from Georgia, Tennessee, and Alabama. In an interesting postscript to this letter, Scott asks Davenport to attend to a sartorial matter, a black cashmere vest, made of the finest material, and a sidearm pocket for spectacles.
