      Berlin, 24. VI. 1842.. 2 SS. Folio.. Lied für Singstimme und Klavierbegleitung ("Ob ich dich liebe? frage die Sterne") mit unterlegtem Text nach Karl Herlossohn, am Schluß Nachschrift an seinen Kompositionslehrer Wilhelm Cläpius (1801-68): "[Heinrich] De Marchion läßt Sie herzlich bitten, ihm das vorstehende Liedchen so rasch als möglich zu instrumentiren (aber in E oder Es dur), da er es doch schon am Mittwoch in der Probe singen, und daher die Stimmen ausgeschrieben haben muß. Sie haben wohl die Güte und nehmen das Nachspiel auch zum Vorspiel, damit das Lied einen ordentlichen Eingang hat. Nehmen Sie nur nicht übel daß ich Sie schon wieder belästige. Wenn das Liedchen fertig ist, bringen Sie's mir wohl [...]". - "Gumbert ließ sich 1842 in Berlin als Gesangspädagoge, Korrepetitor und Kompositionslehrer nieder und entfaltete eine ungewöhnlich fruchtbare Tätigkeit als Bühnen- und Liederkomponist sowie als Musikschriftsteller, Rezensent, Textdichter und Übersetzer" (MGG V, 1111). - Einige hinterlegte Randeinrisse; im ganzen wohlerhalten.

Contemporary blond calf, gilt decorated spines, sides with double gilt borders, gilt edges. Most probably the finest plates on Russian natural history.

Especially the ichthyological plates are of a great beauty and belong to the very best ever made on this subject.

The plates are arranged as follows: Pisces 32 hand-coloured plates; Aves 3 hand-coloured plates, Amphibia (& Reptilia) 13 hand-coloured plates; Polypi 3 (1 hand-coloured) plates; Ecailles des Poissons et des Reptiles 3 hand-coloured plates; Mammalia 4 hand-coloured plates, Crustacea 1 hand-coloured plate; Arachnoidea 1 hand-coloured plate, Cryptogamia 7 hand-coloured plates; Mollusca 12 hand-coloured plates; Geologie 4 hand-coloured plates & 4 (3 hand-coloured folded) maps; Terrain Carbonifères 8 plates. /"... the 13 hand-coloured, engraved plates... represent the first coloured iconography of the reptiles of southern Russia to be published" (Adler III p. 110).//Nissen ZBI, 1072.

        American Notes for General Circulation

      London: Chapman and hall, 1842. First edition, first issue. original brown cloth decorated and ruled in blind, gilt lettered spines, pale yellow endpapers. Spines a tad faded (gilt bright), volume I with some minor expert restoration, vol II with light rubbing of spine ends, else fine. Octavo. Two volumes. xvi, 308; viii, 306 [6] pp With two bookplates, one from the noted bibliophile Harry Elkins Widener [1885-1912]), whose mother’s donation to Harvard built the library that her son intended to give the university. Harry perished aboard the Titanic and never got to see his dream fulfilled. The other from Andrew Mortimer Drummond, banker of Charing-Cross and Denham, Bucks., 1786-1864 Dickens and his wife arrived in Boston, then visited Hartford, New York, Philadelphia, Washington, Richmond, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, St. Louis, the Illinois prairies, Ohio, Toronto, Montreal and Quebec. His strong abhorrence of slavery is openly expressed and he makes good Dickensian fun of American ways, but in general he lets Americans off pretty lightly, although it was not seen that way at the time, and a wave of angry citizens wrote nasty responses. He paints a vivid picture of travel by steamboat, the Midwest as he saw it, and the social life in the eastern cities. One of the most interesting of ante-bellum travellers to America [Howes D316. Clark III:151. Hubach, p. 94. Smith II, 3].

        Autograph Letter, signed. To James A. Caldwell

      Washington, D.C., 1842. 2 pp. 1 vols. 4to. Laid into a green cloth chemise. 2 pp. 1 vols. 4to. Reading in part, "In regard to Mr. Tyler's measures of nomination; I feel every disposition to support both when I can do so without a violation of principle; but I cannot approve his Exchequer project. Indeed it has but few, -very few friends in either party. As it was originally presented by the Secretary of the Treasury (Walter Forward), I considered it more dangerous if possible than a National Bank ... Nothing has yet authentically transpired of the character of Lord Ashburton's negotiations. He is very pacific in his conversation; I have no doubt he sincerely desires to preserve the peace between the two countries, but we cannot yet form any decided opinion at what may be the results ... One of the greatest evils under our system is the unreasonable length of the sessions of Congress. We have now been in session nearly six months and the House have not yet begun to consider the tariff question ..." Tyler's Exchequer Project was a plan presented to Congress in December, 1841, which envisioned a public banking institution directed by a non-partisan Board of Control. "Lord Ashburton's negotiations", conducted with Daniel Webster, ha adopted a compromise northern boundary of Maine.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Paris, 22. XII. 1842. - 1 S. Qu.-8vo. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "Ich erlaube mir, Ihnen eine Arbeit zu überreichen, welche ich Ihrem geschätzten Blatte einverleibt zu sehen wünschte. Sind Ihnen fernere Beiträge von mir genehm? Ich ersuche Sie, mir recht bald hierüber Antwort zukommen zu lassen, sowie auch mich mit Ihren Honorarbedingungen bekannt zu machen [.]. - Theodor Hagen studierte Musik in Paris und war mit Heinrich Heine, Richard Wagner und Friedrich Hebbel bekannt; zwei Jahre lang korrespondierte er auch mit Ludmilla Assing. Nach Deutschland zurückgekehrt, leitete er das Städtische Theater Hamburg, betätigte sich während der Revolution 1848/1849 im Hamburger Arbeiterbildungsverein und im Demokratischen Kreisausschuß seiner Heimatstadt. "Als Karl Marx im Frühjahr 1849 Hamburg besuchte, lernte er Theodor Hagen kennen. Das Mitglied des Bundes der Kommunisten Conrad Schramm reiste 1849 mit seinem Pass, als dieser verhaftet wurde. Anfang November 1849 verhandelte Theodor Hagen im Auftrag von Karl Marx mit dem Hamburger Verleger Julius Schuberth über die Herausgabe der 'Neuen Rheinischen Zeitung. Politisch-ökonomische Revue'. Es gelang Hagen, auch einen Drucker zu gewinnen. Hagen war der Korrektor dieser Zeitschrift. 1850 emigrierte Hagen nach London, wo er als Musiklehrer und Journalist seinen Unterhalt verdiente. 1854 wanderte er in die USA aus und ließ sich in New York nieder. Hier war er als Musiklehrer und Musikkritiker tätig" (Wikipedia). [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        MEMORIE STORICHE DELLA REPUBBLICA DI SAN MARINO.

      Tipografia Elvetica 1842 Seconda edizione. Cm.17x10,5. Pg.404. Legatura in mz.pergamena con piatti decorati. Tassello con titoli in oro al dorso. La coperta originale è conservata all'interno. Bruniture sparse. Esemplare assai ben conservato. Filosofo e uomo politico abruzzese, Melchiorre Delfico (Leognago di Teramo, 1744 - 1835) fu allievo del Genovesi e simpatizzò con Bonaparte. Fu esule a San Marino, ove compose la presente Opera che vide la luce in prima edizione nel 1804, pubblicata in Milano da Sonzogno. "Il suo pensiero filosofico, derivato in parte dalle idee del Cabanis e del Condorcet, rientra nel quadro dell'illuminismo. Il Delfico è animato da una salda fede nel progresso e crede di scoprire la radice della perfettibilità umana in un istinto imitativo che costituirebbe la base della morale e darebbe impulso a quel perfezionamento che distingue l'uomo dall'animale" (G.M.Merlo).

        Tinted Lithograph Panorama Titled:] Petra. March 10th 1839.

      F.G. Moon, London 1842 - London: F.G. Moon, 1842. Tinted lithograph ca. 50x33 cm (20x13 in). Some mild foxing otherwise a very good lithograph. Petra was "established possibly as early as 312 BC as the capital city of the Nabataeans" (Wikipedia). Roberts left "London in August 1838 for Paris and thence travelling via Alexandria to Cairo, before visiting the pyramids at Giza. Hiring a cangia, he sailed up the Nile as far as Abu Simbel, stopping on his return north to sketch temples and ancient sites such as Philae, Karnak, Luxor, and Dendera. Back in Cairo he drew its streets and mosques before departing for Syria and Palestine in February 1839. He travelled through Sinai to Petra and thence north, via Hebron and Jaffa, to Jerusalem. From there he made an excursion to the Jordan, the Dead Sea, and Bethlehem and, after spending a further week in Jerusalem, he continued north, visiting many places associated with the Bible, before exploring Baalbek. He sailed for England from Beirut in May 1839, was quarantined in Malta, and returned to London in July. He was the first independent, professional British artist to travel so extensively in the Near East, and brought back 272 sketches, a panorama of Cairo, and three full sketchbooks, enough material to ¿serve me for the rest of my life¿ (Roberts, eastern journal, 28 Jan 1839). Over the next decade Roberts made ¿a serries of intire new drawings¿ for the 247 large coloured lithographs executed by Louis Haghe for The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt & Nubia (1842-9). No publication before this had presented so comprehensive a series of views of the monuments, landscape, and people of the Near East. Roberts was to paint more oils of the East than of any other region he visited, exhibiting thirty-one at the Royal Academy alone. These received critical acclaim and sold for high prices: for example, Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives (Holloway Collection at Royal Holloway and Bedford New College, Egham) was commissioned for £330 in 1841 and his Ruins of Baalbec sold for £440 the same year, while The Island of Philae (1843; priv. Coll.) bought by a friend for £100, rapidly sold for £200, and in 1858 fetched 400 guineas. The works remain keenly sought after to this day" (Oxford DNB).

        The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia [...]. (And:) Egypt & Nubia, from drawings made on the spot [...]. With historical descriptions by William Brockedon.

      London, F. G. Moon, 1842-1849.. Large folio (620 x 465 mm). 6 volumes bound in 4. Portrait of Roberts on India paper, 6 hand coloured titles and 241 superb hand coloured plates and 2 maps, with accompanying leaves of text, complete. Handsomely leather bound in half period morocco over marbled boards. All edges gilt. Binding by the London master Bennett Eedy (1799-1862) with his stamp to endpapers.. Both of Roberts' monumental works on the Middle East: a finely bound, coloured set of the standard folio edition. "One of the most important and elaborate ventures of nineteenth-century publishing and [...] the apotheosis of the tinted lithograph" (Abbey, p. 341). Roberts' masterpiece was issued in 41 parts over seven years, beautifully lithographed by Louis Haghe, to whom Roberts paid tribute in glowing terms: "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." - After an apprenticeship to the Scottish house-painter, Gavin Buego, David Roberts (1796-1864) became assistant scene painter at the Pantheon theatre in Edinburgh. He continued scene painting in Glasgow and finally, in 1821, was hired to work with Clarkson Stanfield at the Drury Lane theatre in London. In 1838 he made plans for a journey to the Near East, inspired by his passion for artistic adventure. He departed in August 1839 for Alexandria and spent the remainder of the year in Cairo and visiting the major tombs and sites of Egypt. The following February he journeyed to the Holy Land, making stops in Suez, Mount Sinai and Petra. He spent time in Gaza before entering Jerusalem and concluded his tour by spending several months visiting the biblical sites of the Holy Land. Roberts returned to England at the end of 1839 and submitted his drawings to F. G. Moon in 1840. Moon arranged to bring out a volume of Scripture history, paying Roberts 3,000 pounds for the copyright of the sketches and for overseeing Haghe's efforts. Both the exhibition of his original watercolours and the subsequent published work were an immediate success and confirmed his reputation as an architectural and landscape artist of the highest order. - Bookseller label of James Rimell, London, to pastedown. While not strictly contemporary with the date of issue, the colour in the present copy would appear to have been applied within the nineteenth century. The binder has altered the positioning of some of the plates to accommodate the original six volumes within the four-volume format. A very clean copy, occasionally showing the barest traces of foxing. A stunning set, and an economical alternative to the near-unobtainable luxury copies in hand colour issued by the publisher (a recent example, unbound in loose sheets, commanded $242,500 at Christie's in 2012). - Ibrahim-Hilmy II, 176.

Sir Nicholas Harris Nicolas, author and antiquary wrote many titles however it is the History of the orders of the Knighthood of the British Empire for which he is best remembered, originally issued as parts at a cost of between £3000 and £4000. In Muir's view "it is doubtful whether the technical quality of these prints could be surpassed today"; the plates 'using gold leaf.. are truly magnificent' (Muir 152) This work continues to be a valuable source for historians of the subject. 36.5*27cm, very heavy 17kg packed) A lovely set of a title that rarely come on the market!

        Autograph letter signed to the music publisher [Carl] Friedr[ich] Kistner in Leipzig

      . 1 page. Quarto. Dated January 29, 1842. With integral address panel. In German (with transcription and translation). Relative to the composer's urgent need to receive the vocal and instrumental parts for Handel's Israel in Egypt, op. 51, and his Lobgesang symphony-cantata, op. 52. "Please send me everything that remains at the Abonnements-Concert [series at the Leipzig Gewandhaus] "quam citissime" [Latin for "as fast as possible"] by rail. Slight foxing, primarily to upper margin; reinforced with paper tape to left edge and with transparent tape to upper edge; creased at folds and slightly overall to blank area of address panel; remnants of red sealing wax.. Mendelssohn may have been requesting these parts from Kistner in preparation for a concert in which he co-directed (with Julius Rietz) the Niederrheinisches Musikfest in Düsseldorf (May 1842), where he conducted both his 'Lobgesang' and Handel's Israel in Egypt. Mendelssohn's 'Lobgesang' symphony-cantata received its premiere in June 1840 at a festival commemorating the quadricentenary of the invention of movable type. "... a broad historical review that realtes the German past to the present and summons various musical icons - symphony, cantata, oratorio elementsk responsorial psalmody, and chorale - into the service of praising God. If the Lobgesang faied, it did so not by emulating the Ninth [Beethoven's Ninth Symphony] but by aspiring toward an unattainable comprehensiveness - a symphony-cum-cantata with the trappings of a sacred service, a concert piece created for a specific occaion but reaching toward musical universality." Todd: Mendelssohn, p. 400. Mendelssohn cultivated a life-long devotion to Handel and did much to promote his music in Germany, much as he had done for Bach in England, conducting Act II of Israel in Egypt in Düsseldorf in 1833 and the complete work three years later in Leipzig; he also prepared a new edition of the work in 1844 at the request of the Handel Society. "Op. 51 owes much to Handel, especially Joshua... But in conception and design... the composition is a product of nineteenth-century sensibilities and aesthetics." ibid, p. 382 Kistner was Mendelssohn's publisher in Liepzig. Mendelssohn lived in Berlin at the time but retained close ties to Leipzig and continued conducting at the Gewandhaus. Interestingly, the railroad from Berlin to Leipzig had just been completed on September 10, 1841; Mendelssohn apparently took advantage of this for the urgent delivery of the material requested from Kistner mentioned in the present letter.
