        Eigenh. Schriftstück mit U. ("Feuchtersleben").

      O. O., 15. [?] IV. 1842. - 1 S. Kl.-4to. "Kissingen's Quellen wirken erregend auf's Gefäßsystem; der Marienbader-Kreuzbrunn[en] ist das sanfteste und vorzüglichste Mittel gegen Hämorrhoidal-Leiden. Da nun der betreffende Patient, wenigstens so lange ich ihn beobachtete, ohnehin an Gefäß-Aufregung (Blutwallungen) litt, und Hämorrhoiden die Quelle des Uebels waren, so ist: Kissingen unpassend, dagegen: Der Marienbader-Kreuzbrunnen sehr zweckmäßig [.]".

        The Book of Mormon

      Nauvoo, Illinois: Printed by Joseph Smith, 1842. Fourth American edition. [Fifth overall].. Leather bound. Very good. 571 pp. Sextodecimo [14.5 cm]; original brown sheep with red leather title label gilt stamped on the backstrip. Very good. Minor rubbing to extremities of board. Extremities of the red leather label are nicked with small losses. Minor sporadic foxing. Contemporary name in ink on the front free endsheet. A nice copy of this scarce book. The 1842 Book of Mormon was the only edition published in Nauvoo, Illinois (the 1840 states Nauvoo, but was actually printed in Cincinnati by Shepard and Sterns). The book was printed at the Times and Seasons shop under the direction of Joseph Smith, managed by John Taylor and Wilford Woodruff. It is the fifth edition overall, and is the last edition printed during Joseph Smith?'s lifetime, containing the Prophet's final corrections.1842 was the year that Joseph Smith (1805-1844) was elected Mayor of Nauvoo. This was the last official American edition of the Book of Mormon until Brigham Young published the 1871 edition in Salt Lake City. Copies of this 1842 edition are quite difficult to obtain. Bibliographer Peter Crawley states, "How many copies comprised this run is not known, but it must have been a small number, given the relative scarcity of the 1842 Book of Mormon today." Crawley 159. Flake/Draper 599. Auerbach 1174. Bibliotheca Scallawagiana 233. Sabin 83042. Graff 710.

A little rubbed and some sunning to the boards, binders blanks foxed, off-setting from the frontispiece, light toning, else a very good set. First edition and still the major printed source on Viscount Keppel (1725-1786), one of the most interesting British naval commanders of the second half of the 18th century. "Keppel entered the navy in 1735 and five years later accompanied Anson on his voyage of circumnavigation. In 1785 he led a small expedition against Gorée on the West African coast. Commanding the Torbay, he played a notable part in the sinking of the Thesée at Quiberon Bay (1759), and was with Pocock at the capture of Havana (1760). After the notoriously indecisive action against the French fleet off Ushant (July 27, 1778) he became involved in a disgraceful quarrel with Palliser" (NMM).

        Two-Volume Illustrated Whaling Journal

      Aboard the Ship Metacom, 1842. Unbound. Very Good. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. An original two-volume illustrated whaling journal on unbound folded paper; approximately 7" x 10". Together the volumes have 40 pages including covers; 32 contain journal entries, the remainder have various ledger entries and notes written in a different hand. The cover of the first volume is illustrated with drawings of whaleboats and a spouting whale. Lettering and decorations are in scrimshaw style. Covers are soiled and worn, but still quite attractive. Interior pages are all present, some with a faint dampstain, light fading, or minor soiling. The bottom half of the final leaf in the second volume has been removed. This is not a dry recounting of ship locations and daily weather conditions. Rather it is a lively and detailed record of life aboard a mid-1800s American whaler. The volumes are well written, enjoyable to read, and filled with details including crew interactions, standing watch, turns at the wheel, hunting and killing Sperm Whales, difficulties rounding Cape Horn, the brutality of the Captain and his officers, processing whales. One entry reads "had a spree with Murray and gave him five knuckles in the mouth repeated. The mate . . . sent him aloft, [and I'm] rather inclined to think he had a cold berth of it." The final entries read, "three of us run away but were caught again" and "four ran away and has not since bin heard of since." If the author wasn't one of those four, no doubt he made his escape immediately thereafter. In addition, many hand-drawn whale 'stamps', there are exceptional illustrations Paita, Peru and two of the four Islas de los Desventurados (Unfortunate Islands), St. Felix and St. Ambrose, which are located 530 miles off the coast of Chile. There are also fine illustrations of the ship, a repair to a jib boom, and the blacksmith's forge.

        Album Pittoresque d'un Voyage autour du Monde, exécuté par ordre du gouvernement Français. Gravures en taille-douce entièrement dessinées par l'Amiral Paris. Texte par M. Casimir Henricy, publiciste, ancien marin, ayant fait partie de l'expédition

      Paris: Ch. Noblet, n.d., but, 1842. Oblong folio, with 25 engraved plates; some foxing, cloth a bit spotted, small chip from corner of title-page; yet a very good copy in original crimson cloth, lettered and decorated in black and gilt. A scarce series of views of places visited by Laplace's Artémise voyage, bearing a short inscription by the author explaining his commission aboard the Artémise, signed by Pâris and dated 1886.The plates, all by Pâris, include a fine Hawaiian view ("Honorourou, capitale d'Ouahou, vu du mouillage - Iles Hawaï") as well as a view of the Tasmanian penal settlement ("Etablissement Pénitentiaire de Port Arthur - Terre de Van Diemen"). There is also a view of the Artémise being careened at Papeete in Tahiti. The other images show the Artémise at sea under full sail, the African coast, South Africa, Indian Ocean, Coromandel, Bengal, Ceylon, Malabar, Bombay, Middle East, Philippines, China, and South America.Pâris started his naval career on the Astrolabe under Dumont d'Urville; he sailed as an officer on the Favorite on Laplace's first voyage, and sailed again with Laplace on the Artémise in her final voyage of 1837-1840. This was to be his last voyage too since he lost an arm as a result of a terrible accident. Nonetheless he continued a distinguished naval career. This was not his only book: his important study of native ship-building (Essai sur la construction navale des peuples extra-européens) was published in 1841.This is a remarkably rare book, not recorded by Cordier, Ferguson, Forbes, Borba de Moraes, Mendelssohn, the Hill Catalogue, Sabin, Judd, or Blackmer. The only bibliographical references we have found for the book are those by Rolf du Rietz (who records a copy in the Kroepelien collection) and O'Reilly-Reitman. This must be one of the scarcest books relating to the French grands voyages, and one wonders whether there may have been some impediment to full publication.These images are of Laplace's second voyage, a voyage that set out to consolidate French interests in the Pacific, particularly in Tahiti and Hawaii. The visit to Hawaii in July 1839 was one of "avowed hostility" (Judd), forcing the government to sign a treaty granting freedom of worship by Catholics, the introduction of French priests, wines and brandies, and the trial of French nationals by foreign juries only, backed up by a $20,000 guarantee, which emptied the treasury. Kroepelien, 553; O'Reilly-Reitman, 10157 (and see 983).

        KA HELE MALIHINI ANA MAI KEIA AO AKU A HIKI I KELA AO; HE OLELONANE I HOOHALIKEIA ME HE MOEUHANE LA.

      Honolulu: Mea paipalapala a na Misionari, 1842. - 418pp. plus seven woodcut plates. Frontis. 12mo. Contemporary calf, tooled in blind, leather label. Light wear at extremities. Near fine. The rare first edition in Hawaiian of Bunyan's PILGRIM'S PROGRESS, and the first printing in Hawaiian of an English literary classic. The Hawaiian title translates as THE TRAVELER FROM THIS WORLD TO THAT WHICH IS TO COME. In 1840 the American Tract Society in Honolulu hoped to publish an abridged edition of Bunyan if a translator could be found, and in 1841 Artemas Bishop took on the task, promising the Society that "it will prove one of the most popular works in the Hawaiian Language." Unfortunately for Artemas and the Society, the book flopped and the 10,000 copies that were printed were remaindered in unbound sheets, most of which were disposed of to Chinese vegetable peddlers for wrapping produce. For copies that survived this, the rate of attrition, as with all early Hawaiian works of this type, remained very high, and the book is quite scarce today. The work failed to impact the Hawaiians, as the English allusions lost all meaning when translated. The names of the extensive cast of characters became incomprehensible - Mr. Lechery became Kekowale (literally, lust + only), and Mrs. Filth became Pelapela (decayed flesh). Some of the surviving unbound sheets of this book were bound into limp suede in 1910. This copy, on the other hand, is in a contemporary Hawaiian binding of the mid- 19th century, which is most unusual and notably rare. See David Forbes, BUNIANA (San Francisco, 1984), for an extensive discussion of the book. This copy from the library of James F. Hunnewell (1832-1910), with his bookplate. Hunnewell was a Boston book collector and bibliographer. He published a BIBLIOGRAPHY OF THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS in 1869. His father, James Hunnewell, became familiar with the islands when the ship he was on was sold to Hawaiian chiefs; Hunnewell was responsible for collecting the payment in sandalwood and then selling it in China. As a result he spent several months in the islands and became friendly with the local populace. In 1820 he arrived in Honolulu as second mate on the brig Thaddeus, the ship bearing the first American missionaries and also the first printing press. He later developed a significant business in Hawaii which grew into the commercial house later known as C. Brewer & Company. Though he returned to Charlestown, Ma., he spent the rest of his life actively engaged in exporting goods to Hawaii and California. Part of his considerable fortune was given to found Oahu College.

        [AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPT OF Tratado elemental teórico- practico de los Cónsules de España en paises etrangeros, presentado al Ministerio de Estado, por el Cónsul de S. M. en el Estado de Yucatan]

      [Campeche. 1842-43].. [59]pp. plus a quarto bifolium bearing title bound at beginning of text. Folio. Modern three-quarter red morocco and cloth, gilt. Boards bowed, light rubbing to corners and spine ends. Central horizontal crease throughout, otherwise a clean manuscript. Near fine. An extensive unpublished manuscript manual of diplomacy written for the use of Spanish consuls and commercial agents stationed in foreign countries by Jerónimo Ferrer y Valls (1797-1851), then the Spanish consul and commercial agent in Campeche, Yucatan, and addressed to Antonio González y González (1792- 1876), then in his second term as Spain?'s Prime Minister. Ferrer y Valls explains that he wrote this treatise for the benefit of his consular colleagues and trade agents, having himself profited from Agustín de Letamendi?'s ATRIBUCIONES CONSULARES (1835). Arranged in thirty-six chapters, the text includes examples drawn from the author?'s own experience in Campeche. Following a discussion of commerce in general and the history of Spanish consulates, Ferrer y Valls examines the skills required by a consul and vice consul, arguing that such a figure should also undertake the role of the commercial agent. Consular documents are examined: the bill of health for the port for which the consul was responsible, the authentication of documents, the notification of petitions, and the books to be kept. These include a letter-book of ministerial correspondence and another of correspondence with authorities within the country; a register of passports issued by the consul; a log of the entry and exit of ships; a book of certificates stating the origin of goods; a register of Spanish citizens resident in the country; and a book of sea protests, proxies, deeds, wills and other public acts. Discussion of the jurisdiction of Spanish consuls is followed by a description of consular services and fees, with a table of tariffs. A particularly interesting example of a consular report given here is a table for the first quarter of 1842 recording imports and exports shipped into and out of the port of Campeche by Spanish merchant vessels. The treatise ends with a short chapter on inventories, listing, as an example, the papers, books and effects in the consulate at Campeche. At the time of writing this treatise, Ferrer y Valls was already an established author, having published, among other works, the similarly titled TRATADO ELEMENTAL TEO´RICO-PRA´CTICO DE RELACIONES COMERCIALES… in 1833, and edited a periodical entitled TECNOL?"GICO NACIONAL DE AGRICULTURA, ARTES INDUSTRIALES, CIENCIAS, COMERCIO Y LITERATURA in 1834. That Ferrer y Valls also intended to publish this manuscript is clear: not only is it a fair copy, with only a few corrections and crossings-out, but it contains a copy of a letter from the author, and Prime Minister Antonio González y González?'s reply, regarding its printing. The author estimates the cost of printing and paper for 500 copies at no more than 150 pesos and states that if the government cannot meet the expense then he would, with González?'s approval, arrange the printing himself. In an interesting aside, Ferrer y Valls requests transfer to the new consulate in Montevideo as the climate in Campeche is not congenial to his health. González?'s reply must have come as a disappointment on both accounts: it would not be appropriate for his ministry to publish the TRATADO as it might give the work an authority which only government- issued instructions could have on such matters; as for the transfer, no definite decision had yet been made on the establishment of a consulate in Montevideo. That Ferrer y Valls continued to write, however, is clear from the publication of his CARTAS HISTO´RICAS, FILOSO´FICAS, ESTADI´STICAS, AGRI´COLAS, INDUSTRIALES Y MERCANTILES in 1846. The text of the TRATADO is followed by a copy of a letter from Ferrer y Valls, dated December 26, 1842, to the Secretary of the Office of the Ministry of State in Madrid, enclosing an appendix, and the Secretary?'s reply of March 10, 1843. The appendix includes a "Copy of the case relative to the dispatch of passports to Spanish subjects by the commercial agent of Spain in Yucatan promoted by the government of the said state on 2 November 1841 and ended in favour of the representative of her majesty on 14 October 1842;" "A verbal claim made by the commercial agent of Spain in Yucatan on 18 October 1842 to the commander of the first division of operations for excluding the Spanish subject Juan Gual from the armed services;" and "A preventive communication directed by the commercial agent of Spain in Yucatan to the general in chief of the Mexican expeditionary troops and naval forces of the same state" of November 1842. A marvelous inside view of Spanish diplomatic relations, written in Mexico in the mid-19th century.

        AUTOGRAPH MANUSCRIPT OF Tratado elemental teórico- practico de los Cónsules de España en paises etrangeros, presentado al Ministerio de Estado, por el Cónsul de S. M. en el Estado de Yucatan].

      [Campeche. 1842-43]. - [59]pp. plus a quarto bifolium bearing title bound at beginning of text. Folio. Modern three-quarter red morocco and cloth, gilt. Boards bowed, light rubbing to corners and spine ends. Central horizontal crease throughout, otherwise a clean manuscript. Near fine. An extensive unpublished manuscript manual of diplomacy written for the use of Spanish consuls and commercial agents stationed in foreign countries by Jerónimo Ferrer y Valls (1797-1851), then the Spanish consul and commercial agent in Campeche, Yucatan, and addressed to Antonio González y González (1792- 1876), then in his second term as Spain’s Prime Minister. Ferrer y Valls explains that he wrote this treatise for the benefit of his consular colleagues and trade agents, having himself profited from Agustín de Letamendi’s ATRIBUCIONES CONSULARES (1835). Arranged in thirty-six chapters, the text includes examples drawn from the author’s own experience in Campeche. Following a discussion of commerce in general and the history of Spanish consulates, Ferrer y Valls examines the skills required by a consul and vice consul, arguing that such a figure should also undertake the role of the commercial agent. Consular documents are examined: the bill of health for the port for which the consul was responsible, the authentication of documents, the notification of petitions, and the books to be kept. These include a letter-book of ministerial correspondence and another of correspondence with authorities within the country; a register of passports issued by the consul; a log of the entry and exit of ships; a book of certificates stating the origin of goods; a register of Spanish citizens resident in the country; and a book of sea protests, proxies, deeds, wills and other public acts. Discussion of the jurisdiction of Spanish consuls is followed by a description of consular services and fees, with a table of tariffs. A particularly interesting example of a consular report given here is a table for the first quarter of 1842 recording imports and exports shipped into and out of the port of Campeche by Spanish merchant vessels. The treatise ends with a short chapter on inventories, listing, as an example, the papers, books and effects in the consulate at Campeche. At the time of writing this treatise, Ferrer y Valls was already an established author, having published, among other works, the similarly titled TRATADO ELEMENTAL TEO RICO-PRA CTICO DE RELACIONES COMERCIALES in 1833, and edited a periodical entitled TECNOLÓGICO NACIONAL DE AGRICULTURA, ARTES INDUSTRIALES, CIENCIAS, COMERCIO Y LITERATURA in 1834. That Ferrer y Valls also intended to publish this manuscript is clear: not only is it a fair copy, with only a few corrections and crossings-out, but it contains a copy of a letter from the author, and Prime Minister Antonio González y González’s reply, regarding its printing. The author estimates the cost of printing and paper for 500 copies at no more than 150 pesos and states that if the government cannot meet the expense then he would, with González’s approval, arrange the printing himself. In an interesting aside, Ferrer y Valls requests transfer to the new consulate in Montevideo as the climate in Campeche is not congenial to his health. González’s reply must have come as a disappointment on both accounts: it would not be appropriate for his ministry to publish the TRATADO as it might give the work an authority which only government- issued instructions could have on such matters; as for the transfer, no definite decision had yet been made on the establishment of a consulate in Montevideo. That Ferrer y Valls continued to write, however, is clear from the publication of his CARTAS HISTO RICAS, FILOSO FICAS, ESTADI STICAS, AGRI COLAS, INDUSTRIALES Y MERCANTILES in 1846. The text of the TRATADO is followed by a copy of a letter from Ferrer y Valls, dated December 26, 1842, to the Secretary of the Office of the Ministry of State in Madrid, enclosing an appendix, and the Secret

Lipperheide 1590 und 1591. Röhricht 1983. Abbey, Travel, 385 und 272. - "David Roberts was the first professional artist to visit the Near East without a patron or a connection to a military expedition or missionary group. He sailed to Alexandria in 1838 and for eleven months traveled up the Nile River, across deserts and mountains, through Egypt and the Holy Land, to arrive in Jerusalem on Easter 1839. He continued north to Lebanon and departed from Beirut in May. Roberts recorded his impressions of landscapes, temples, ruins, and people in three sketchbooks and more than 272 watercolors. These sketches and paintings provided the basis for the 247 lithographs published with text between 1842 and 1849 as the three-volume "Holy Land." The images were produced by Louis Haghe, the best and most prolific lithographer of the time. Originally from Tournai, Belgium, Haghe moved to England before 1825 and established himself as specialist of the hand-tinted lithograph. His sensitive handling of the lithographer's tools imparts a range of tonality and color as well as a sense of the delicacy and spontaneous quality of Roberts's original images. Roberts's plates are among the most popular images of famous sites in the Near East. As John Ruskin wrote they make "true portraiture of scenes of historical and religious interest. They are faithful and laborious beyond any outlines from nature I have ever seen." (ww.metmuseum.org). - "In point of bulk and ambition Roberts's Holy Land was one of the most important and elaborate ventures of nineteenth-century publishing, and it was the apotheosis of the tinted lithograph... There is pleasure to be had from many of the individual plates, where Haghe's skilful and delicate lithography, and his faithful interpretation of Roberts's draughtsmanship and dramatic sense, combine in what are undoubtedly remarkable examples of tinted lithographic work. Particularly in the Egypt and Nubia section, one feels that the colossal subjects and broad vistas were ideally suited to Roberts's talent, trained as he was in theatrical scene-painting during his early days in Carlisle, Glasgow, Edinburgh, and London...Roberts was fully appreciative of Haghe's work, writing that: 'Haghe has not only surpassed himself, but all that has hitherto been done of a similar nature. He has rendered the views in a style clear, simple, and unlaboured, with a masterly vigour and boldness which none but a painter like him could have transferred to stone'" (Abbey 341). - Das Werk erschien in insgesamt 3 Varianten: Die kolorierte Subskribtions-Ausgabe (mit den 2 Bll. "Subskribenten-Verzeichnis"), eine Ausgabe mit farbigen getönten Lithographien und eine Ausgabe mit getönten Lithographien. Vorliegend ist eine Mischausgabe, die Ägypten Bände enthalten die farbig getönten Lithos, die Bände des heiligen Landes mit den getönten Lithos. - Titel mit hs. Namen. Teils etw. wasserrandig.

        Autograph note signed in full ("Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy) relative to the composer's incidental music to Sophocles' Antigone

      - Written during Mendelssohn's residency in Berlin, during which time he retained close ties to Leipzig and continued conducting at the Gewandhaus. He composed the incidental music to Sophocles' Antigone in 1842-1843, and Ewer in London published the first edition of the piano-vocal score in 1843; Kistner's edition did not appear until 1951. "The composer began work in 1841 on music for the choruses of Antigone. His own classical studies held him in good stead: using the translation of J.J.C. Donner, scrupulously faithful to the original metre, Mendelssohn rendered the strophes and antistrophes of Sophocles' choruses with syllabic settings for double male choir accompanied by an orchestra, occasionally resorting to a recitative-like style of declamation. The parts of the principal characters were left as spoken dialogue, or set as melodrama, with the orchestra accompanying the spoken text. Though opinion varied about Mendelssohn's music (Schumann viewed the score as ‘half opera, half tragedy’; The Times, ‘too modern, and at the same time not modern enough’), Antigone was widely performed and used as a model for later classical revivals. In 1845 alone, it achieved 45 performances at Covent Garden; the same year, it was satirized in Lortzing's comic opera Der Wildschütz, another sign of its popularity." R. Larry Todd in Grove onlineFriedrich Sebald Ringelhardt (1785-1855) was the director of the municipal theatre in Leipzig from 1832 to 1845; Carl Friedrich Kistner (1797-1844) was Mendelssohn's publisher in Leipzig. 1 page. Oblong octavo (173 x 81 mm.), cut from a larger sheet. Dated Leipzig, July 14, 1843. Written in brown ink in German cursive with proper names in Latin script. In German (with translation). Relative to the engraving of the score and parts of Antigone . "I request Director Ringelhardt to have the score and parts of my music to Antigone given to Mr. Kistner for engraving."

John Cozzens was acting agent on behalf of the New York Lyceum of Natural History for their subscription to the Double Elephant Folio Edition of John James Audubon's The Birds of America. Audubon approached the Lyceum of Natural History with the hope they would help finance his production of the grand hand-painted engravings of his portfolio of bird paintings. Although he was unsuccessful in his efforts, the Lyceum did grant Audubon membership into their august society on January 13, 1824, and further supported his vision by becoming one of the early subscribers to his magnum opus: The Birds of America, with 435 hand-painted engravings by William H. Lizars and Robert Havell, Jr. published between 1824-38.

"The great detail and clarity of Malpighi's description was unsurpassed until Bowman [1842]" (Garrison-Morton).<br/><br/> ❧Norman 1427; Friedman 121; Pincus 175; Garrison-Morton 535 & 1230. <br/><br/> "This collection of anatomical treatises contains Malpighi's account of the Malpighian bodies (glomeruli) of the kidney (in 'De renibus'), his observation of red blood corpuscles (in 'De polypo cordis"), and the first description of Hodgkin's disease (in 'De liene'). Malpighi's studies of the kidney gave support to his iatromechanical theory of glands as secretion machines; he concluded that the glomeruli were in direct contact with both arteries and veins, and postulated a similar connection between the glomeruli and urinary vessels. In his treatise on heart polyps, Malpighi demonstrated that the polyps consisted of coagulum found in normal blood; it was while examining a clot of coagulum under the microscope that Malpighi observed a number of red 'atoms' (corpuscles) in the interstices of the coagulum fibers" (Norman).. 4to (247x179 mm), uncut in the original carta rustica boards, pp. [4], 1-172, a fine and fresh copy on thick paper, custom morocco box. "Very rare" (Norman)

        A manuscript petition signed by 54 'householders and members of the German Lutheran Congregations of Klemzig and Hahndorf' on 26 May 1842, seeking to have Pastor Kavel licensed as an Officiating Minister under a new 'Act for Regulating Marriages in the Province of South Australia'

      - Foolscap folio, a bifolium, comprising the half-page petition with three neat columns each of fourteen signatures below it; a further twelve signatures on the verso; third page blank; fourth page docketed. Four horizontal folds, with very slight wear to the open ends of the creases; when folded, the docketed portion of the last leaf has been exposed and is a little sunned; overall, the document is in excellent condition. The Act came into operation on 1 July 1842. It called for Ministers of Religion to be registered, or any marriages they performed would be deemed invalid. Automatically eligible under the Act were 'clergymen of the United Church of England and Ireland and of the Church of Scotland'. Section XXXII stated 'That any minister of religion who shall have been for a period of twelve months in charge of a christian congregation consisting of at least forty householders resident in the province may apply to the Registrar General and the Registrar General on production of certificates signed in duplicate by such forty householders at least stating that the applicant has been for such period of twelve months a minister of religion in charge of such congregation of which they are members shall enter such applicant as an officiating minister within the meaning of this Act in a book to be kept for that purpose and shall file and preserve one of such certificates among the records of this office and shall give public notice thereof in the South Australian Government Gazette'. Offered here for sale is one of the original pair of petitions, being the copy returned to the parishioners in accordance with the strict letter of the Act. That it has survived is one thing (handed down through one of the families). That virtually all of the signatories arrived in South Australia on the 'German First Fleet' is something else again. The story is too well-known to require a detailed account, but briefly, during 'the bitter church struggle arising from the King of Prussia's attempt in 1817 to enforce unity of Lutherans and Calvinists within his realm' (Australian Dictionary of Biography), Pastor August Kavel and his congregation sought to emigrate to places where they could practise their faith in freedom. In 1836, he heard of George Fife Angas and the new colony of South Australia. The upshot was that the 'largest group of devout families that he [Angas] persuaded to emigrate to the new colony were the German Lutherans under Pastor August Kavel. When the Colonization Commission and the [South Australian Company] refused to help, he personally advanced some £8000 to the Germans for their migration. On arrival many of them became tenants on his land at Klemzig' (ADB). They arrived on the 'Prince George', the 'Bengalee', the 'Zebra', and the 'Catharina' between 18 November 1838 and 22 January 1839. The first notice regarding the licensing of ministers under the new Act was dated 25 May 1842, and it appeared in the South Australian Government Gazette Number 229, published the following day. The notice was placed by the Registrar General, none other than Charles Sturt, unhappily cooling his heels in an inferior position on insufficient pay, while preparing 'a grandiose plan for exploring and surveying, within two years, the entire unknown interior of the continent' (ADB) - but that's another story . When he received the Kavel petitions, he docketed them; on this copy he wrote '1. Certificate of the Householders of the Villages of Klemzig and Handorff [sic] in favor of the Revd. A. Kavel, Lutheran Minister. May 26th 1842' and signed it 'C. Sturt RG'. A more pleasing (and unlikely) group of signatures relating to the foundation of South Australia that one might wish to have materialise after some 170 years is difficult to imagine! Notification that 'the Reverend Augustus Kavel has been entered as an Officiating Minister' appeared in Gazette Number 231 on 9 June 1842.

        Indian Utensils and Arms

      Paris, Coblenz and London 1842 - Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Du Casse after Bodmer, blindstamp. An elaborately composed grouping of Indian artifacts based on drawings made of items that Prince Maximilian purchased and brought back to Europe as well as belongings sketched by Bodmer in situ and retained by their original Indian owners. This cornucopia of Indian manufacturing includes 2. stone knife found near New Harmony, Indiana; 4. gunstock type club; 5. lance, Sauk and Fox Tribe; 6. shield; 8. rawhide storage container, ?Cheyenne Tribe; 9. moccasins, ?Iroquois Tribe; 10. quiver, bow and arrows, ?Crow or Sioux Tribe; 12. pipe, Mandan Tribe; 14 ball, Mandan or Hidatsa Tribe; 15. hoop and pole game, Mandan Tribe; 16. war whistle, Mandan Tribe; 17. drum, Mandan Tribe; 18. moccasins, Sioux Tribe. Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. Well-armed with information and advice, the party finally left St.Louis, on the most important stage of their travels, aboard the steamer Yellow Stone on April 10 1833. They proceeded up the treacherous Missouri River along the line of forts established by the American Fur Company. At Bellevue they encountered their first Indians, then went on to make contact with the Sioux tribe, learning of and recording their little known ceremonial dances and powerful pride and dignity. Transferring from the Yellow Stone to another steamer, the Assiniboin, they continued to Fort Clark, visiting there the Mandan, Mintari and Crow tribes, then the Assiniboins at Fort Union, the main base of the American Fur Company. On a necessarily much smaller vessel they journeyed through the extraordinary geological scenery of that section of the Missouri to Fort Mackenzie in Montana, establishing a cautious friendship with the fearsome Blackfeet. From this, the westernmost point reached, it was considered too dangerous to continue and the return journey downstream began. The winter brought its own difficulties and discomforts, but Bodmer was still able to execute numerous studies of villages, dances and especially the people, who were often both intrigued and delighted by his work. The portraits are particularly notable for their capturing of individual personalities, as well as forming a primary account of what were to become virtually lost cultures.

        Blick auf den großen Rundturm des Castello Vecchio bei Castellamare am Golf von Neapel.

      - Bleistift, auf Velin, links unten bezeichnet und datiert &#132;liebes Akatien (sic!) Castello vecchio Castel a mare. 27. August"., verso Nachlaßstempel. 29,7:44,5 cm. Verso: Bleistiftskizze einer südlichen Landschaft. - Mit einigen kleinen Braunflecken. Während des Italienaufenthaltes von 1842/45 entstandene Studie vor der Natur. Nach erstem Unterricht 1829-1834 bei seinem Vater, dem Landschafts- und Dekorationsmaler Ludwig Pose (geb. 1786), besuchte Eduard Wilhelm 1830 die Düsseldorfer Kunstakademie und war seit 1832 Schüler des Landschafts- und Historienmalers Carl Friedrich Lessing (1808-1880) und seit 1832 des Landschaftsmalers Johann Wilhelm Schirmer (1807-1863). Von Düsseldorf aus unternahm er zahlreiche Wanderungen in die nähere Umgebung, um die Natur vor Ort zu studieren. Zusammen mit Andreas Achenbach (1815-1910) wechselte er 1836 nach München und nahm dort Verbindung zu Carl Rottmann (1797-1850) auf, dessen Mitarbeiter er an dem gerade begonnenen Zyklus griechischer Landschaften wurde. Vorübergehend ging er, wegen der in München ausbrechenden Cholera, nach Frankfurt am Main. Er unternahm Studienreisen ins Salzburger Land, 1838 nach Tirol, 1839 nach Paris und Brüssel. Zwischen 1838 und 1842 lebte er überwiegend in Düsseldorf. 1842 reiste er nach Rom. Von hier aus unternahm er zahlreiche Wanderungen nach Unteritalien und Sizilien. Nach seiner Rückkehr 1845 ließ er sich endgültig in Frankfurt am Main nieder und reiste 1849 nochmals nach Italien, nach Florenz. In seinen späteren Jahren gehörte er dem in Kronberg im Taunus aktiven Malerkreis an.
