        Voyage dans la Russie meridionale et la Crimee, par la Hongrie, la Valachie et la Moldavie.

      Lacrampe for Ernest Bourdin Paris 1841 - Tall 8vo. (26 x 16.7 cm). Half-title, wood-engraved frontispiece on India paper, title, vii, 621, [3 including errata and table] pp., with 23 wood-engraved plates after Raffet, all printed on India paper mounted and with tissue guards, one page of sheet music, numerous wood engravings in text; some occasional spotting, a bit browned towards end. Contemporary green morocco by Boutigny (with label), boards with richly gilt floral ornaments and Russian double-headed eagles, flat spine titled and decorated in gilt, all edges gilt, yellow endpapers; spine slightly rubbed, corners slightly bumped. Beautifully bound example of this celebrated travelogue; the first of Demidoff's travelogues to be published, with all plates printed on India paper. In 1837 Count Anatoliy Nikolaevich Demidoff, Prince of San Donato (1812-70), launched a geological expedition to Ukraine and Crimea at his own expense. He was accompanied ion his travels by the artist Denis Raffet, who illustrated Demidoff's account. The present copy seems to belong to a rare 1841 reissue of the 1840 first edition, and is identical to the 1840 edition in every way, including the errata. This 1841 second issue is not mentioned in the usual bibliographies, which date the second edition (with different pagination) from 1854. Cf. for the 1840 issue Atabey 337 and Brunet II, 583; not in Blackmer. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Young Lady's Toilet

      Hartford and Berea: E.B & E.C. Kellogg, 1841. Cardboard covers. Very good. Complete with title page and 19 leaves, each featuring one or more moveable flaps that, when raised, reveal a commendable quality. 19 of the original 21 flaps are present. Card covers; sound binding. Minor wear; some foxing. Dampstain to the title-page and first four leaves. The pages of this children's behavior book show illustrations of objects found on a young woman's dressing table. Surprises occur when flaps on the pages are raised and it becomes clear that the label does not address the physical item, but rather describes an underlying quality or trait. For example, "A wash to smooth wrinkles" becomes "contentment." And "Fine lip salve" is "cheerfulness." Some of the items relate to study and work: two earrings reveal "attention" and "retention" along with the advice, "With these clear drops appended to the ear / instructive lessons you will hear," and an "Invaluable pair of bracelets" turn out to be "industry" and "perseverance.". Toilet books were a 19th century genre of movable books, the first of which, simply titled The Toilet, was illustrated by miniaturist William Grimaldi and published in London in 1821. Rather scarce. As of 2017 no other examples of this title are for sale in the trade, although a number are held by institutions. Five examples, in varied conditions, have been sold at auction in the past sixty years.

Il est le premier à utiliser le terme Renaissance pour qualifier son époque. Cet ouvrage mythique est d'une importance fondamentale car il pose les prémisses méthodologiques de l'Histoire de l'art.

He is the first to use the term Renaissance to describe his time. This work is of fundamental importance because it poses the methodological premises of the History of art. It brings together the biographies of the Italian painter from Cimabue to Michelangelo. In addition, Vasari will realize for the Medici the corridor that will link the Palazzo Vecchio to the Palazzo Pitti.

        Autograph letter signed, with a fine illustration.

      Oxford, 6. VIII. 1841. - 4to. 2¾ pp. on bifolium. To an unidentified recipient: "I have been favoured by your letter of June 29th, in which you have given me your opinion of your drawing of Blenheim, for which I am very much obliged. As the drawing was then in London, I thought it best to defer replying to your letter till I should have it before me, or till I had made the alterations you mentioned, which I believe I have now completed, and which undoubtedly improve it very much. In the first place I have darkened the large green oak No. 1, on the right, also the lower part of the warm oak No. 2 on the left, the upper part, at present, I am unwilling to alter unless I find that it be your wish that I should do so. The Wych Elm No. 3 was very yellow, but I have now made it somewhat green, such as it might be when the foliage has undergone a partial change only. The small beech trees remain much the same, for some time I was unwilling to do any thing to them, I have however made them a little darker. I have endeavoured to work up the distance and building to the effect you desired; and the ferns in the foreground I have varied both in effect and colour. I should say that I have not done much to the building, and was unwilling for some time to touch it, but after making the other alterations, I ventured also to deepen and warm it a little, and I now think it better. I shall be much obliged if you will inform me if you recollect any other little thing that you desire I should do to it, and I shall be most happy to do my best to work up to your idea of the subject. I must beg to say that I agree entirely with you as to propriety of strengthening the effect according to your suggestion [.]".

        Piano Trio no. 1 - Autograph Musical Manuscript Fragment

      - Fragment of an autograph musical manuscript in the hand of the German composer, violinist and conductor. The manuscript contains a section of 78 bars from the second movement of his Piano Trio no. 1, op. 119 over 4 pp. on 2 leaves. The music begins at 2 measures before the Peters edition's rehearsal letter N and goes to the end of the movement. The composer's corrections and changes are visible in several places, with some variances from the printed edition. Labeled as Spohr's autograph in several other hands in ink and pencil in the margins. Both leaves unfortunately split vertically in two places, with one large section of the second leaf missing and smaller areas of the first leaf missing. Toning; splits, chipping, and tears; but legible and overall in good condition. 15 x 10.75 inches (38.5 x 27.5 cm)."During his early years Spohr wrote little involving piano except lieder [.] he largely ignored the piano until his second wife's pianistic ability (and perhaps the greater technical perfection of the instrument) came to arouse his interest. His pieces for violin and piano contain some attractive music, particularly the programmatic (or, rather, impressionistic) Reisesonate op.96; but the five piano trios (1841-9) are masterpieces of their kind, and extraordinarily individual in their approach to the medium."Highly regarded during his lifetime, the German violinist and composer Louis Spohr composed ten symphonies, ten operas, eighteen violin concerti, four clarinet concerti, four oratorios and various works for small ensemble, chamber music and art songs. Spohr was the inventor of both the violin chinrest and the orchestral rehearsal mark. His output occupies a pivotal position between Classicism and Romanticism, but fell into obscurity following his death, when his music was rarely heard. The late 20th century saw a revival of interest in his oeuvre, especially in Europe.

      London, John Richards & Co., 1841 ('Third edition, revised and corrected to the present time'). Octavo, [ii] (title leaf), xviii, 476, civ (appendix and index) pages. Early half tan calf and marbled papered boards with a contrasting leather title-label on the spine; covers a little rubbed and scuffed, with the head of both hinges slightly cracked (but firm); endpapers and adjacent leaves offset (mainly from the leather turn-ins); minimal scattered light foxing; early marginal emphases in pencil and (rarely) in ink, in particular to the later sections relating to the institutions and processes of government; related annotations on several pages; overall an excellent copy. Western's apparent aim was to demonstrate the superiority of the English constitution over all other forms of government. In that context, the parochial provenance of this copy is hard to beat. The ownership signature of 'J.F. Burton, Adelaide 1850' appears at the head of the title page and on the front flyleaf (without the place-name). The latter is also signed in pencil 'J.H. Fisher' (James Hurtle Fisher), around which George Fife Angas has written 'Sept 21 1853. Presented by [JHF] to G.F. Angas'. The full name of George Fife Angas is also written there in pencil in what we recognize as a later secretarial hand, indicating (in our experience) that the book came originally from Angas's library. Sir James Hurtle Fisher (1790-1875) 'was one of the most important pioneers of South Australia': a lawyer, he was appointed first Resident Commissioner of South Australia, and arrived in the colony on the 'Buffalo' with the Governor's party. He eventually became a leader of the South Australian Bar (Australian Dictionary of Biography). Angas needs no introduction. We know little about Burton, other than that he was an Adelaide solicitor; he is mentioned as such occasionally in the local newspapers of the day.

        Les Débardeurs.

      Paris: Baugher & Co. [1841] - 66 numbered lithograph plates; some foxing. Orig. royal blue embossed paper boards, dark blue calf spine, elaborately dec. in gilt; rubbed at extremities with sm. chip to foot of spine. A complete collection of the series by the French caricaturist, second only to Daumier as the greatest social commentator and satirical artist of nineteenth century France. A draughtsman in his early career, and later a costume designer, Gavarni rose to prominence publishing his work in the Le Charivari, Le Figaro and L'Illustration. He also illustrated Balzac's novels, and Eugene Sue's Wandering Jew. Gavarni?s 'débardeurs' - meaning literally, those who unload goods from ships - are characters wearing fancy dress, especially women wearing trousers, something that was, at the time, acceptible only during the carnival. 'He could, through the accuracy of faces, the careful rendering of clothes, the precision of poses and bearing, unmistakenly express the age, quality, occupation, habits, manners and ridiculous ways of the characters he depicted. He made them speak a language stunning with original exactness, feeling and novelty' (Henri Beraldi). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Dickens wrote a new xii-page introduction for this edition, in which he challenged those who accused him of portraying social deprivation in too fine a detail. ?I saw no reason, when I wrote this book, why the very dregs of life . should not serve the purpose of a moral, at least as well as its froth and cream. . But there are people of so refined and delicate a nature, that they cannot bear the contemplation of these horrors. . I have no desire to make proselytes among such people. I have no respect for their opinion . do not covet their approval; and do not write for their amusement. I venture to say this without reserve; for I am not aware of any writer in our language having a respect for himself, or held in any respect by his posterity, who ever has descended to the taste of this fastidious class.?

      Published by J. G. Klinger in Nuremberg. Constructed, delineated and etched by J. A. Buhler. Nuremberg : J[ohann]. G[eorg]. Klinger, [between 1841 - 1852]. Wooden and plaster globe (6 inches in diameter), covered with 12 glazed and hand-coloured gores, fitted and spinning with metal polar axis in a circular card box, the lid provided in expert facsimile, the globe a little rubbed and with a few cracks but sound.

The globe was published by the Nuremberg cartographic firm founded by the engraver Johann Georg Klinger (1764-1806). The company continued until the early 1920s under various names, including Klinger Kunsthandlung, Klinger & Bauer, and after 1852 as C. Abel-Klinger Kunsthandlung, upon the firm's acquisition by Carl Abel. This English language example was one of a number of editions published by Klinger for use in schools.

        Log of the ships ?Earl of Balcarras? and ?Helen? during the First Opium War

      1841 - Manuscript in ink. 8vo. Original half-sheep over paper covered boards, occasional toning and slight foxing on the endpapers, with some wear and bumping to the covers and spine, very good. 128pp. At sea, 1840 - An excellent journal documenting life at sea during the First Opium War, 1839-42. Alexander Bayne initially served as the chief officer on the Earl of Balcarras, where he sailed from London to Canton, via Bombay, Singapore, Hong Kong and Manila. In July 1842, he was given command of the ship Helen and continued to operate in the Chinca His journal spans the voyage, departing London on September 25 1840, through to January 1843. As the first Opium War was fought over trade (among other things), Bayne provides a valuable first-hand account of tensions between the English and Chinese and how they manifest at sea. Specifically, Baynes writes from Whampoa: ?.moored ship at the new anchorage close by the 1st bar large ships not being able to pass over on account of the Chinese having sunk Junks with stones in them in order to block the passage up so as to make themselves secure from the infuriated Barbarians as they are graciously pleased to call us . during our stay here we remain in constant dread of the Chinese fearing that they might break their good faith with us but no such thing . however they had plenty of troops stationed round us to see that we did the same.? There are other notable events recorded here, the most dramatic of which being a typhoon in Hong Kong: ? one of the severest typhoons ever felt in China, the whole fleet of ships driving about in all directions, some without masts which had been cut away & others flying to the shore as if they were tired of the tempest & there lodging . on the rocks . next morning the sight was horrible dead bodies floating about in all directions & several noble ships on shore . had the typhoon lasted 20 minutes more we would have all been on shore.? Bayne also records meeting other ships, general maintenance and events on board, and the manuscript ends with nine pages of tables listing dates, latitude and longitude co-ordinates etc. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

He wrote two operas, three ballets, stage music, two masses, and symphonic and chamber music. The present work is not included in Lovreglio's works list in Wikipedia.
