        Rome and Its Environs: Drawn from Nature and on Stone

      T. M'Lean, London 1841 - Engraved title, list of subjects and twenty-five plates. Publishers quarter morocco and moire cloth, title and author in gilt to spine and upper cover, primrose endpapers. Recased, rubbed, corners bumped. Internally occasional spots of foxing, but generally fairly bright and clean. Complete with lithographic vignette title and twenty-five full-page tinted lithographs, with list of subscribers laid in. Abbey states there were two hundred and nine subscribers, including Queen Victoria, but there are only one hundred and fifty-nine listed on the subscriber sheet. Field noting that "these lithographs which were done by Lear on what was apparently his first visit to Rome in 1841, are excellent examples of his skill. They are also characteristic of the best type of landscape drawing of that period and if he had retained the same freshness in his work throughout his life, his name as an artist would be better known today" (Field, page 118).

        Galerie de scènes et d'impressions historiques, morales et pittoresques du royaume de Naples

      Borel et Bompard, Naples 1841 - With a contemporary gouache paint of Mount Vesuvius erupting, with four vessels in the sea in the foreground (10.5 × 7 cm) on p. (7). First edition. In contemporary half leather. Gilt spine. (9), 10-61, (1) p. The painting is depicting probably the eruption of 1834 that has been also witnessed and recorded in his diary by Hans Christian Andersen: "Smoke swirled thickly up out of Vesuvius, and the lava gave off a cloud of steam? At dusk I walked down to the sea. Vesuvius spewed great streams of lava; it blazed into the air; it was like tongues of fire flaring up. This is the most violent I have seen it." The book is a guide to Naples and its surroundings, contains two poems about the Vesuvius one by René Richard Louis Castel "Le Vésuve en courroux sous ses monts caverneux" (1802; p. 41.) and by Charles-Julien Lioult de Chênedollé "Le Vésuve" (1822; p. 45.). The book has also been published under the title "Souvenirs d'une promenade au mont Vésuve" in the same year. Under this title ("Galerie?") we could not trace any copies in institutional holdings. Spine worn, title vignette fray. Occasional foxing. Overall a good copy. First edition. In contemporary half leather. Gilt spine. [Attributes: First Edition]

        EIS DOXAN PATROS UIOU KAI HAGIU PNEUMATOS TOU HENOS THEU : PEDALION TES NOETES NEOS, TES MIAS, HAGIAS, KATHOLIKES KAI APOSTOLIKES TON ORTHODOXON EKKLESIAS. . . [ . . .THE RUDDER (PEDALION) : OF THE METAPHORICAL SHIP OF THE ONE HOLY CATHOLIC AND APOSTOLIC CHURCH OF THE ORTHODOX CHRISTIANS. . . ]

      Athens: Konstantin Gkarpola, 1841. First Thus. Hardcover. Very good. Folio. [14],484 pp. plus two plates (frontispiece and church plan). In modern Greek. Expertly rebound in antique-style three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt. Frontispiece quite clean, remainder of contents moderately foxed. Very good. First edition printed in Greece (and second overall) of the classic compilation of Eastern Orthodox canon law, compiled and edited by the monks Agapius and Nicodemus of Mount Athos at the close of the 18th century. The largest published compilation of canon law in its time, PEDALION collected and provided commentary on the Canons of the Holy Apostles, of the first seven Ecumenical Councils, of regional synods through Carthage, and of numerous Church Fathers. As Greek printing on Greek soil was suppressed by the Ottoman authorities during the lives of Nicodemus and Agapius, their first manuscript was sent to Leipzig for publication. There, the heiromonk Theodoret made various unauthorized additions to the editors' commentaries, which were corrected in the present edition on the order of Patriarch Neophytos Doukas. This new edition was printed twelve years after Greek independence by Athens publisher Konstantin Gkarpola, who dedicated it to the brothers Zosimas (Zosimades), leading benefactors of the Greek Enlightenment and independence movements. PEDALION represents one of several major contributions by Nicodemus the Hagiorite (1749-1809) to the Eastern Orthodox Church in the modern era. An accomplished theologian, committed ascetic, and influential mystic, Nicodemus played a major role in the revival of Patristic literature and ancient and medieval Christian practices, including Hesychasm, an intensive spiritual discipline centering on the Jesus Prayer and closely associated with the monks of Mount Athos. He was canonized in 1955. The book includes a detailed floor diagram of an Orthodox church, borrowed from the EXOMOLOGETARION of Chrysanthos of Jersalem, and an attractive allegorical frontispiece showing Christ at the helm of a boat. The accomapnying caption reads (in Greek, with the following translation supplied in the first English-language edition of 1957): "This ship symbolizes the Catholic Church of Christ. Its keel represents the Orthodox Faith in the Holy Trinity. Its beams and planks represent the dogmas and traditions of the Faith. Its mast represents the Cross; its sail and rigging represent Hope and Love. The Master of the vessel is our Lord Jesus Christ, whose hand is on the helm. The mates and sailors are the Apostles, and the successors of the Apostles, and all clergymen, secretaries and notaries, and occasional teachers. The passengers comprise all Orthodox Christians. The sea symbolizes present life. A gentle and zephyr-like breeze signifies whiffs and graces of the Holy Spirit wafting the vessel on its course. Winds, on the other hand, are temptations baffling it. Its Rudder, whereby it is steered straightforwardly to the heavenly harbor is the present Book of the Holy Canons." Surprisingly scarce in major institutions. OCLC record twelve copies worldwide.

First collected edition. Scarce. Dubbed ‘the Corneille of the BoulevardsÂ’, Pixérécourt was practically the inventor, and certainly the codifier, of the popular French stage form mélodrame. Noted for its stock characters, complex plots, sensationalism, startling coups de théâtre, scenic virtuosity and a strongly moral outlook, the mélodrame flourished in the early decades of the 19th century. Pixérécourt built a catalogue of nearly 60 such plays, beginning in 1798 with Victor, ou LÂ’enfant de la forêt (originally intended as an opéra comique), developing an international reputation. He also wrote comedies, tragedies, vaudevilles, féeries, pantomimes and the librettos of some 21 opéras comiques... He certainly was not ignorant of the dramatic potential of music, for he worked a great deal of it into his melodramas. His most frequent collaborators in that genre were Louis Alexandre Piccinni and Adrien Quaisain. In both dramas and librettos he saw himself as a successor of Sedaine... Though PixérécourtÂ’s melodramas are best known for the influence they exercised on Romantic drama, they were no less influential on the genre that came to be known as French grand opera."

        Autograph letter signed in full to the publicist Theodor Winkler (pseud. Theodor Hell)

      2 pages of a bifolium; second leaf blank. Small folio (208 x 270 mm). Dated Paris, May 7, 1841. In brown ink on stationery with the composer's monogrammatic blindstamp to upper left corner. In German (with translation). A long, densely-written, letter regarding Wagner's proposed biography of Beethoven and mentioning his opera Rienzi. Wagner, who was trying to eke out a living in Paris at the time, attempts to interest Winkler in his two-volume monograph on Beethoven based on the research of Wagner's friend Gottfried Engelbert Anders (1795-1866), a German-born librarian in Paris. Wagner declares his intention to supersede Anton Schindler's biography of Beethoven, published in the previous year, which he considers inadequate. He asks Winkler to recommend him to the publisher Christoph Arnold (1763-1847) and names his (and Anders's) requested fees, to be paid in part as advances: "Herr Anders found [Schindler's] book to be very poor compared to his own collection of communications [on Beethoven] ... also, every thoughtful and sensitive reader has expressed his opinion on [Schindler's book] that it falls short of meeting the demands of a true biography as it had been expected... Herr Anders was prompted to realize his long-cherished dream. As his position... leaves him hardly any time and he also confesses that an easy, fluent realization will not come to him, he has offered to leave me all his rich material and to discuss everything with me but to have the book itself written by me... Avoiding any fussy, pedantic, scholarly philistinism of citation, our book shall be more like a great novel on an artist than like a dry enumeration of chronologically ordered dates and anecdotes." In the final paragraph, Wagner expresses his frustration about the long silence of the Dresden court opera regarding a possible production of his opera Rienzi: "I have to confess to you that my opera [Rienzi] still means more to me than anything else... I am almost dying of my unruly lack of patience concerning the decision of the general direction... A negative decision...will cost me half a year, during which I could have entered negotiations with a different theater." From the noted autograph collection of Louis Koch. Slightly creased; small professional repairs to edges; professionally guarded at inner edge of final leaf. . WBV 169. Unpublished in English translation, the German original published several times, most recently in Richard Wagner: Sämtliche Briefe I, no. 149, pp. 481-86. First publication in Das Museum, a supplement to Neue Frankfurter Presse, September 4, 1877. Kinsky, Manuskripte, Briefe, Dokumente von Scarlatti bis Stravinsky: Katalog der Musikautographensammlung Louis Koch (Stuttgart: Krais, 1953), pp. 250-51 (with facsimile of first page). Theodor Winkler (1775-1856), better known under his pseudonym Theodor Hell, was the editor-in-chief of the daily Dresdner Abend-Zeitung, for which Wagner worked as a Paris correspondent. Enclosed with the present letter was Wagner's third "Pariser Bericht," dated May 5, 1841. Winkler was active in many fields; trained as a lawyer, he achieved fame as a poet, editor, arts administrator, and stage director. Wagner's biography of Beethoven did not, in fact, materialize. After Arnold declined, the publishers Brockhaus and Cotta did the same. Rienzi, however, finally premiered at the Dresden court opera on October 20, 1842. A notable example of Wagner's fine calligraphic hand from his early years, still using German Kurrent script.

        Autographed letter signed ("Charles Dickens").

      Windsor, 7. XI. 1841. - 8vo. 2¾ pp. on bifolium. To Dr. Frederick Salmon complaining of some aches and pains. Dickens and his wife went to stay at the White Hart Hotel in Windsor on November 6th, the day after Dickens completed his novel "Barnaby Rudge". The trip was meant to provide some rest and relaxation for Dickens who had completed "The Old Curiosity Shop" and "Barnaby Rudge" back to back, and had recently undergone major surgery. Dr. Frederick Salmon had performed surgery on Dickens in October of 1841 for a fistula of the rectum, a procedure for which Salmon was renowned. In this letter, Dickens' describes his pain and references the operation with his typical wit, noting "all manner of queer pains were floating about my illustrious person [.] now (but not often) shooting through that region which you have made as tender as my heart [.]". Dickens tells his doctor that he is feeling "immeasurably better" and asks whether Salmon would like to make his follow up visit tomorrow rather than Tuesday. - Light soiling to creases; evidence of removal of wax seal. Property from a Private Chicago-area Collection. Provenance: The Comte Alain de Suzannet Dickens Collection Sold: Sotheby's, London, November 22-23, 1971.

        POMOLOGIA BRITANNICA; OR, FIGURES AND DESCRIPTIONS OF THE MOST IMPORTANT VARIETIES OF FRUIT CULTIVATED IN GREAT BRITAIN

      London: Henry G. Bohn, 1841. FIRST EDITION n. Hardcover. With More than 150 Fine Hand-Colored Plates of Fruit. 245 x 150 mm. mm (9 3/4 x 6".). Three volumes. FIRST EDITION. Contemporary green half morocco with marbled boards, spine gilt with fruit motifs, raised bands, red and brown morocco labels, gilt edges. WITH 152 BEAUTIFUL HAND-COLORED PLATES (five folding) by C. M. Curtis and Mrs. Augusta Withers, engraved by W. Clark and S. Watts; volume I with a few plates containing supporting elements (foliage, twigs, etc.) left (purposely?) uncolored. Bookplate of Josephi Greene and that of Sir Thomas Neame on the pastedown and front free endpaper of each volume. Janson "Pomona's Harvest," p. 385; Sitwell & Blunt "Great Flower Books," p. 114; Nissen 1203; Benezit XIV, 1003. Edges and joints a bit rubbed, covers a little scuffed, a couple of minor marginal stains and occasional foxing (mostly on the paper guards and very rarely affecting leaves with text), otherwise all plates in fine condition, with particularly bright colors. The self-taught son of a nurseryman, Lindley (1799-1865) was an eminent figure in his field, publishing several important botanical books and articles, editing botanical periodicals, being the guiding force in the horticultural society for many years, and holding the first professorship of botany in the University of London. In response to what he considered to be the exasperating difficulties of identifying plants by the Linnaean system of classification, Lindley devised his own method, happily named the "natural system," though unhappily somewhat less systematic than Linnaeus'. Although the present work, a reissue of "The Pomological Magazine" (1828-1830) under a new title, catered more to the tastes of a popular audience than a purely scientific one, the contents reflect the author's customary attention to detail and interest in a wide range of plant characteristics. A marriage of both beauty and utility, each of the 152 splendid hand-colored plates features a finely illustrated fruit tree specimen accompanied by a succinct description of its origins, traits (including flavor), and advice about the best species for cultivation in British climates.

        Autographed letter signed ("Charles Dickens").

      Windsor, 7. XI. 1841.. 8vo. 2¾ pp. on bifolium.. To Dr. Frederick Salmon complaining of some aches and pains. Dickens and his wife went to stay at the White Hart Hotel in Windsor on November 6th, the day after Dickens completed his novel "Barnaby Rudge". The trip was meant to provide some rest and relaxation for Dickens who had completed "The Old Curiosity Shop" and "Barnaby Rudge" back to back, and had recently undergone major surgery. Dr. Frederick Salmon had performed surgery on Dickens in October of 1841 for a fistula of the rectum, a procedure for which Salmon was renowned. In this letter, Dickens' describes his pain and references the operation with his typical wit, noting "all manner of queer pains were floating about my illustrious person [...] now (but not often) shooting through that region which you have made as tender as my heart [...]". Dickens tells his doctor that he is feeling "immeasurably better" and asks whether Salmon would like to make his follow up visit tomorrow rather than Tuesday. - Light soiling to creases; evidence of removal of wax seal. Property from a Private Chicago-area Collection. Provenance: The Comte Alain de Suzannet Dickens Collection Sold: Sotheby's, London, November 22-23, 1971.

        Original landscape study titled 'Banda - The Spice Islands'

      Lisbon, 1841. Pencil drawing measuring 204 x 260 mm. (sheet size), well preserved, mounted. Original mid-nineteenth century sketch of Banda, the fabulously lucrative and contested Spice island in present day Indonesia.Once the primary source of nutmeg and mace, the Banda islands were a prized Dutch possession until captured by four Royal Navy vessels in 1810. This drawing details the main settlement of Bandanaira island, with part of the original Dutch fort visible on the foreshore. This fort was constructed by the VOC in 1611 to protect the Dutch spice monopoly in the region, and remains the largest structure on the island to the present day. The drawing also illustrates the active volcano Gunung Api rising some 650 meters above sea level. Three native praus and a two-masted junk are clearly discernible in the Bay.Firm attribution of the artist is difficult. Below the graphite image is inscribed in a faint cursive hand 'Banda - The Spice Island J.H.J. Cordner, October 18th 1841 Lisbon', this is followed by another notation in a different hand 'Derramore May 9 1859 for J.H.S. Fre...' [remainder illegible].Whether Cordner was the artist or the owner of the sketch remains ambiguous. The name is absent from the standard British naval references, including O'Byrne's Naval Biographical Dictionary or Clowe's Royal Navy. Likewise, the name Cordner does not appear in texts relating to the capture of Banda by the British. However, Walford's County Families of the United Kingdom (1860) does list, without individual names, the Cordner family of Derramore in Ireland. Notwithstanding the identity of the artist, this sketch is noteworthy for its detail and meticulous execution. The capture of Banda by the British in 1810 is indicative of the shift in power between the two great trading nations.

        The Ladies' Flower-Garden of Ornamental Bulbous Plants

      William Smith, London 1841 - (10 1/2 x 8 3/8 inches). Half-title. 58 hand-coloured lithographic plates. Contemporary half calf over green patterned cloth covered boards, morocco gilt lettering piece on the upper cover, flat spine tooled in gilt, black morocco lettering piece, marbled endpapers, gilt edges (repairs at joints) A fine copy of the first edition of the second work in Mrs. Loudon's extremely popular series that influenced a generation of mid-nineteenth century gardeners. "Loudon developed a simple formula for these works, combining a brief text with charming illustrations, an arrangement that appealed to her audience. For each plant a brief botanical description was provided, including its common name in English, its order and genus. some historical notes, and instructions regarding its cultivation' (An Oak Spring Flora p.326). Jane Loudon first began her series of popular botanical works in 1838 with the intention of alleviating the debt incurred by her husband, the renowned botanist, gardener, and horticultural writer John Loudon, whom she met after the publication of her best-selling novel The Mummy, Tales for the Twenty Second Century. Having had no prior training in botany, she first learned about horticulture after her marriage, when she assisted her husband with his Encyclopedia of Gardening (1834). Taking a less traditional and more generally accessible approach to the subject, Loudon published her first gardening book, Instructions in Gardening for Ladies, in 1838. She followed this up with a series of five linked titles that could also be viewed as separate works. The first work in the series was published in 1840 and was an immediate success, others followed in 1841 (the present work), 1843-1844 and the series was completed by two further works in 1846 and 1848.

The Rua Ouvidor 36 is indeed the address of his shop. This was made very famous by his photographs of Brazil, which are the first that we have today. Presumably Leuzinger brought this partition of Paris and made it relate to sell in his shop, it was perhaps a special imperial order. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Opera complet dialogué, partition de chant et piano.

Le nom en bas au milieu du contreplat : G. Leuzinger, et l'adresse correspondante sur le second contreplat : Rua do Ouvidor 36, n'est pas le nom d'un relieur, mais celle d'un imprimeur et photographe Suisse qui s'est installé à Rio de Janeiro en 1832. Le Rua de Ouvidor 36 est en effet l'adresse de sa boutique. Celui-ci s'est rendu très célèbre par ses photographies du Brésil qui sont les toutes premières que nous possédons aujourd'hui.  On peut penser que Leuzinger a fait venir cette partition de Paris et l'a faite relier pour la vendre dans sa boutique, il s'agissait peut-être d'une commande impériale spéciale.

(Heartman & Canny).Eleonora. A Fable is a short story that was first published in Philadelphia (early September 1841) in the literary annual The Gift. It is often regarded as somewhat autobiographical and has a relatively happy ending. The story follows an unnamed narrator who lives with his cousin and aunt in 'The Valley of the Many-Colored Grass', an idyllic paradise full of fragrant flowers, fantastic trees, and a 'River of Silence'. It remains untrodden by the footsteps of strangers and so they live isolated but happy. After living like this for fifteen years, 'Love entered' the hearts of the narrator and his cousin Eleonora. The valley reflected the beauty of their young love:"The passions which had for centuries distinguished our race came thronging with the fancies for which they had been equally noted, and together breathed a delirious bliss over the Valley of the Many-Coloured Grass. A change fell upon all things. Strange, brilliant flowers, star-shaped, burst out upon the trees where no flowers had been known before. The tints of the green carpet deepened, and when, one by one, the white daisies shrank away, there sprang up in place of them, ten by ten of the ruby-red asphodel. And life arose in our paths; for the tall flamingo, hitherto unseen, with all gay glowing birds, flaunted his scarlet plumage before us…The loveliness of Eleonora was that of the seraphim -- and here, as in all things referring to this epoch, my memory is vividly distinct. In stature she was tall, and slender even to fragility; the exceeding delicacy of her frame, as well as the hues of her cheek, speaking painfully of the feeble tenure by which she held existence. The lilies of the valley were not more fair. With the nose, lips, and chin of the Greek Venus, she had the majestic forehead, the naturally-waving auburn hair, and the large luminous eyes of her kindred…Eleonora, however, was sick -- "She had seen that the finger of death was upon her bosom -- that, like the ephemera, she had been made perfect in loveliness only to die;" She does not fear death, but fears that the narrator will leave the valley after her death and transfer his love to someone else. The narrator emotionally vows to her, with 'the Mighty Ruler of the Universe' as his witness, to never bind himself in marriage 'to any daughter on Earth'. After Eleonora's death, however, the 'Valley of the Many-Colored Grass' begins to lose its lustre and warmth. The narrator chooses to leave to an unnamed 'strange city'. There, he meets a woman named Ermengarde and, without guilt, marries her. Eleonora soon visits the narrator from beyond the grave and grants her blessings to the couple. "Thou art absolved", she says, "for reasons which shall be made known to thee in Heaven."Many biographers consider Eleonora an autobiographical story written by Poe to alleviate his own feelings of guilt for considering other women for love. At the time of the publication of this very short tale, his wife Virginia had just begun to show signs of illness, though she would not die for another five years. The narrator, then, is Poe himself, living with his young cousin (soon-to-be wife) and his aunt.Heartman & Canny, pp. 68-69; BAL, 16135; Thompson, American Literary Annuals, p. 126
