        Saggio di Magnetismo (and) Manuale Practico di Magnetismo [Animal Magnetism, hypnotism, occult]

      Parigi: No Publisher, 1842 Parigi, 1842. (no publisher). Two volumes in one. First Italian Editions. Octavo, 252 pp+[v]+ 260 pp.; pink cloth, green leather spine, blue speckled page edges. In Italian. Later paper spine label. Stamped seal in Italian on title page. Sunning to extremities, dust & edge wear, corners and spine ends bumped, else VG. Still clean and tightly bound, with high-quality paper leaves which remain undamaged and unfoxed but for light foxing through title page only. Very rare copy of Gauthier's scholarly two-volumes-in-one treatment of Animal Magnetism, in hearty condition, sustainable indefinitely with reasonable care. Animal Magnetism was a term created by German physician Franz Anton Mesmer, the "father of hypnotism", for the force which he believed allowed him to hypnotize his patients: an occult substance or invisible fluid emanating not only from the body but permeating the universe, deriving especially from the stars. Gauthier, according to Crabtree, "was one of the more prolific and competent writers on animal magnetism in the nineteenth century. He had an historically oriented approach to the subject, and, in this, his first book (Saggio, the first half), he traces the precursors of animal magnetism in ancient medicine. He also presents a good summary of the theory and practice of animal magnetism in his own day." Of the second part of this volume, the Manuale, Crabtree says: "A practical manual on animal magnetism written by one of the most highly respected practitioners of the day."

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Dresden, 20. IX. 1842. - 1 S. Gr.-4to. An den namentlich nicht genannten Karl Theodor von Küstner (1784-1864), den Generalintendanten der Kgl. Hofoper in Berlin, wegen der Uraufführung seiner Oper "Der Fliegende Holländer": "Soeben erhalte ich aus Paris die Nachricht, daß die Oper 'le vaisseau Fantome' daselbst zur baldigen Aufführung vorbereitet wird; auf der andern Seite bin ich so unglücklich, durchaus ohne alle Nachrichten über Ihre Absicht in Bezug auf die zu bewerkstelligende Aufführung meines 'Fliegenden Holländers' auf der Ihrer Direktion untergebenen Bühen zu bleiben. Dürfte ich mir daher wohl die Freiheit nehmen, Sie recht angelegentlich zu ersuchen, mich sobald wie möglich davon in Kenntniß zu setzen, welche Bestimmung Sie in meiner Angelegenheit getroffen haben? Die Aufführung meiner Oper 'Rienzi' in Dresden steht mit Sicherheit in der ersten Hälfte des künftigen Monats bevor [.] wenn es Ihnen [.] daher möglich sein sollte, um diese Zeit Dresden mit einem kurzen Besuche zu erfreuen, so brauchte ich wohl nicht erst zu versichern, wie sehr Sie mich verbinden würden, wenn es Ihnen belieben sollte, dieser ersten Aufführung beizuwohnen [.]". - Am Rand der eh. Antwortentwurf mit U. von Küstner: "[.] dass zunächst die Rossinische Oper 'Wilhelm Tell', welche hier noch nicht gegeben, zur Aufführung kommen wird, der die Lachnersche 'Catarina Cornaro' folgt [.]". - Küstners Vorgänger, Graf von Redern, hatte auf Empfehlung Meyerbeers hin Wagners "Fliegenden Holländer" angenommen, es jedoch unterlassen, einen konkreten Termin zur Aufführung zu nennen; auch bei den Verhandlungen mit dem dann neuen Intendaten Küstner war Wagner kein Termin genannt worden. Einen Monat nach diesem Schreiben nun sollte Wagner mit der Uraufführung des "Rienzi" am Dresdner Hoftheater (20. Oktober) einen seiner ersten großen Premierenerfolge feiern. Der "Fliegende Holländer" kam am 2. Jänner 1843 ebenfalls unter Wagners Leitung in Dresden zur Uraufführung. - Stärkere Randschäden. WBV 271. Sämtliche Briefe Bd. 2, Nr. 23.

        Ka_Na_Pi_Ma, An Ottawa Chief

      Philadelphia: Daniel Rice & James G. Clark, 1842. unbound. very good. J.T. Bowen. Portrait. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Page measures 20" x 14". Beautiful portrait from the folio edition of McKenney and Hall's "History of the Indian Tribes of North America". As Superintendent of the Indian Trade Bureau, Thomas McKenney wanted to document the rapidly disappearing culture of the American natives. He activated the project, sponsored by the War Department, by commissioning writer James Hall and Charles Bird King, a renowned American portraitist. King painted the prominent Indians while they visited Washington D.C. as treaty delegates. Most of the original oil paintings were destroyed by fire in the Smithsonian Museum in 1865. These lithographs, published 1842-58, are all that remain and are still hailed as one of the best visual records of influential Native Americans of the nineteenth century. As a boy, Ka-na-pi-ma was educated in Catholic schools both in America and Italy, but returned to his home and became chief of his nation. He signed the treaty between the Ottawa and the United States giving up vast amounts of land. A few small tears around edges and one larger repaired tear at top of page. Slight tape residue along top and bottom edges. One of many Native American portraits in our collection.

        Suez

      London., 1842-9. August, 1st 1843. Size: 425 x 605 mm. Original tinted lithograph. Additional hand colouring. Very good condition. Unobtrusive blind stamp. Roberts was the first independent, professional British artist to travel so extensively in the Near East. His tour in 1838-9 produced 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 he made "a series of intire new drawings" for the large coloured lithographs executed by Louis Haghe for The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt & Nubia, which was originally published by subscription, 1842-9. No publication before this had presented so comprehensive a series of views of the monuments, landscape, and people of the Near East. "Robert'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" (Abbey, Travel). These lithographs were originally published in twenty parts, most parts containing six plates, the price for each part with coloured plates (the most expensive state) being 3 guineas.

A fine set of the extremely rare large paper edition of this important catalogue. "The Hon. Thomas Grenville (1755-1846), after a brilliant parliamentary career, retired from public life in 1818 and devoted himself entirely to his books. He was a true bibliophile, in the highest sense of the word... When he died he left his books to the British Museum... His 20,000 volumes form the greatest gift of books that any private individual has ever made to the Museum. He had fine books of every description, but he seems to have specialised in early Americana (he was the first collector to buy Columbus and Vespucci letters), Aldines, early Spanish and Italian books (Dante, Petrarch and Ariosto), classics (especially Aesop and Homer), books on Ireland and lastly incunables on vellum, including the Mazarin Bible, the 1457 Psalter and the 1469 Livy, this catalogue, by Payne and Foss, is a lasting monument to his enlightened efforts as a collector." - De Ricci, p.114.

        Incidents of Travel in Central America, Chiapas and Yucatn... New Edition

      London: John Murray, Albermarle Street, 1842. Two volumes: 424, 474 p., illus., maps, plans, plates; 23 cm. In 1839, President Martin Van Buren commissioned Stephens as Special Ambassador to Central America. While there, the government of the Federal Republic of Central America fell apart in civil war. His Incidents of Travel in Central America, Chiapas and Yucatn gives a vivid description of some of those events which Stephens witnessed. Stephens and his traveling companion, architect and draftsman Frederick Catherwood, first came across Maya ruins at Copn, having landed in British Honduras (present-day Belize). They were astonished at their findings and spent a couple of weeks mapping the site. Engravings after drawings by Catherwood. Their classic account opened the study of Mayan civilization. The publisher used an inferior paper which has developed extensive spotting over 170-plus years. The 66 plates and seven text figures match the list of illustrations in each volume. Sabin 91297. Good+ despite the spotting found in all early copies. Handsomely bound in Spanish half leather. Stock#OB997.

        CANADIAN SCENERY ILLUSTRATED. From Drawings by W. H. Bartlett

      London: George Virtue, 1842. 2 volumes. First edition of the book called by Sabin “the finest of Mr. Bartlett’s works.” With engraved portrait frontispiece of Bartlett in Vol. I, handsomely engraved vignette half-titles, engraved map, engraved frontispiece to Vol. I and 116 fine steel-engraved plates with tissue guards after drawings by Bartlett. 4to, in the best issued bindings of full forest-green publisher's pebbled morocco richly gilt in panels of spines, with large panel of scrolled and floral gilt decoration within wide gilt rules on all covers, board edges and turn-ins gilt ruled, ribbon markers bound in each volume, a.e.g. [4], 128; [4], 116 pp. A very lovely set, the fine bindings most handsome and well preserved, the text firm and tight, some foxing to the plates, in most cases it is fairly light and minor but on a handful of others it is considerably more extensive. This foxing is normal to the book and is the only defect in an otherwise remarkably presented and preserved copy. FIRST EDITION, in the publisher’s deluxe full morocco, of the title considered by Sabin (and many others) to be William Bartlett’s finest production. It comprises scenery mostly visited by Bartlett in 1836 on one of his four voyages to North America. The engravings, produced by Willis, Cousen and others, are of splendid quality down to the finest details. Waterston called the work, “An incomparable presentation of the picturesque scenes that travellers could visit.” In spite of the great effort and care that went into the production of these magnificent plates, they are notoriously prone to foxing. In this copy most of the plates have escaped with only light foxing that is primarily confined to the margins. A number of them however do have heavier foxing that includes the image area. So fine and detailed are the engravings however that they hold up to this problem remarkably well and retain their beauty in spite of it. In his text, Willis relates both the history and current conditions of the regions visited within both upper and lower Canada throughout the Eastern Provinces. Willis’ fine prose united with Bartlett’s drawings create “a very deep impression upon the pictorial history of Canada...” - Spendlove.

        Encampment of the Aulad-Said

      London., 1842-9. February, 18th 1839. Size: 425 x 605 mm. Original tinted lithograph. Additional hand colouring. Very good condition. Unobtrusive blind stamp. Roberts was the first independent, professional British artist to travel so extensively in the Near East. His tour in 1838-9 produced 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 he made "a series of intire new drawings" for the large coloured lithographs executed by Louis Haghe for The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt & Nubia, which was originally published by subscription, 1842-9. No publication before this had presented so comprehensive a series of views of the monuments, landscape, and people of the Near East. "Robert'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" (Abbey, Travel). These lithographs were originally published in twenty parts, most parts containing six plates, the price for each part with coloured plates (the most expensive state) being 3 guineas. The Holy Land, Syria..., from Drawings made on the Spot. London: F.G. Moon.

ÉDITION ORIGINALE, peu courante, du plus beau livre illustré au XIXe sur Toulouse, avec le Mazzoli. Exemplaire contenant 60 LITHOGRAPHIES hors-texte sous serpente. La table annonce 52 gravures, mais leur nombre peut varier considérablement selon les exemplaires : d'une trentaine de gravures pour certains, jusqu?à une soixantaine pour les plus fournis, ce qui est le cas pour celui-ci. Ouvrage enrichi de deux ENVOIS AUTOGRAPHES signés sur le faux-titre : «Offert par les auteurs, hommage de M. l'abbé Abeillon de Grenade Saint-Bernard. C. Paul [&] J.M. Cayla », et «A mon généreux ami, M. Raymond Lacave Laplagne. L'abbé JH. Abeillon sur Grenade St Bernard ».
