        2 eigenh. Briefe mit U. bzw. Paraphe.

      Calw und Möllingen, 1829 und 1842. - Zusammen (1+1=) 2 SS. auf 2 Bll. 4to und 8vo. Ein Brief mit eh. Adresse. An den Theologen Leonhard Heubner (1780–1853) in Wittenberg, dem er zwei Studenten anempfiehlt, die bald auf dem Weg nach Berlin wären und auf dem Weg dorthin an Wittenberg vorbeikämen (Br. v. 3. April 1829), und über eine geplante Reise: „[.] Nun hat [.] in der letzten Woche die Arbeit so ausgegeben, daß ich bereits beim J. 1734 angekommen bin und hoffen darf, im Laufe der angetretenen Woche, wenn nichts besonderes (Besuche u. dgl.) dazwischenkommt, fertig zu werden. Ich schlage Dir nun vor, daß Du am Mittwoch d. 22. d. hieherkommst (der Omnibus geht täglich Morgens 6 Uhr in Stuttgart ab u. kommt um 12 Uhr hier an). Am Donnerstag früh würden wir dann nach Carlsruhe reisen, von dort mit dem Dampfschiff, wenn’s trifft, was ich nicht weiß, oder mit dem Eilwagen weiter nach Straßburg, und am Freitag auf der Eisenbahn nach Basel. Der Umweg über hier beträgt von Stuttgart aus gerechnet nur 2 Stunden [.]" (Br. v. 12. Juni 1842). – Von Heinrich Jung-Stilling ermuntert, studierte C. G. Barth in Tübingen Theologie, wurde Vikar in Neckarweihingen, Pfarrverweser in Dornhan und Effringen, und schließlich Pfarrer in Möttlingen bei Calw. „Dort erschien 1828 seine erste Erzählung ‚Der arme Heinrich’. 1833 legte Barth sein Pfarramt nieder und gründete den Calwer Verlagsverein, der in der Folgezeit christliche Kinder- und Schulbücher, Jugendblätter und Schriften zur Förderung der äußeren und inneren Mission herausgab. Barth vertrieb auch Missionsblätter und nahm an Missionstagungen teil. Neben zahlreichen Jugendbüchern schrieb er u. a. ‚Zweymal zwey und fünfzig biblische Geschichten für Schulen und Familien’ (1832,), eine ‚Christliche Kirchengeschichte’ (1835) und eine ‚Geschichte Württembergs’ (1842). Mit Hilfe seiner weltweiten Missionsverbindungen trug Barth eine große völkerkundliche Sammlung zusammen, die später in die Naturalienkabinette von München und Stuttgart gelangte" (DBE). – Der Brief v. 3. April 1829 mit zwei kleinen Ausrissen durch Siegelbruch (geringf. Buchstabenverlust). [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Ornithologie Canarienne.

      Paris, [1842]. - 4to., (13 5/8 x 11 inches). (A bit spotted throughout). 4 fine engraved plates after Traviés with original hand color (browned). Contemporary brown pasteboard (rebacked, a bit worn). Provenance: With manuscript ownership inscription (dated 1912), bookplate, and manuscript notes of British ornithologist David Bannerman (1886-1979). With ink stamp of "P. Friedlander & Sohn, Berlin" to front pastedown. With contemporary manuscript ownership inscription of German physician and ornithologist Gustav Hartlaub (1814-1900). Volume 2 only of 9. First edition. The ornithological section from "Historie naturelle des Iles Canaries," vol. 2 Zoology. The beautifully hand-colored engravings are after Traviés and include: Fringilla Teydea, nob.; Fringilla Canaria; Columba laurivora Nob.; and Fringilla Tintillon, nob. / Procellaria Columbina, nob. Philip Barker-Webb was an English botanist who collected plants in Italy, Spain, and Portugal, and was the first person to collect in the Tetuan Mountains of Morocco. On his way to Brazil, he made what was supposed to be a brief visit to the Canary Islands, but ended up staying for a considerable amount of time and returned after his Brazil expedition. He published his results in the nine-volume "L'Histoire Naturelle des Iles Canaries," of which the present book is one volume, which took 20 years to complete. Sabin Berthelot, a French naturalist and ethnologist who lived part of his life in the Canary Islands, co-authored this work. The third author, Alfred Moquin-Tandon, was a French naturalist and doctor. Over the course of his career he was professor of zoology at Marseille, professor of botany at Toulouse, studied the plants of the island of Corsica, and served as director of the Jardin des Plantes and the Academie des Sciences in Paris. Edouard Travies (1809-1865), was a great ornithological illustrator. Travies' artistry represents a pinnacle in French ornithological illustration. Natural history, as a descriptive pursuit bent on identifying new species, demanded detailed illustrations. The minute precision of Traviès' work places him with the best of France's scientific artists. Traviès was born in Doullens, in the Somme district of France, in March 1809, the younger brother of the caricaturist Charles Joseph Traviès de Villier (1804-1859). Throughout his career he concentrated on natural history subjects, both in watercolor (he exhibited regularly at the Paris Salon between 1831 and 1866) and lithography. Unlike a number of his contemporaries, he was an artist both with the brush and on stone. Traviès' original watercolors were reproduced as both engravings and lithographs, which are considered among the best portraits of birds ever painted. The artist rendered the backgrounds fully, incorporating foliage, flowers, butterflies, as well as the birds themselves, all with considerable charm.

        Lettera autografa firmata a Jean-Gabriel Falampin.

      S.d. ma 1842-43, - 1 pagina in-8 su carta con iniziali ''GS'' impresse a secco, indirizzo ''Monsieur G. Falempin, rue d'Autin 14'', sigilli parzialmente conservati. Lettera in cui la scrittrice gli dice che dovrà confrontarsi con i suoi editori per capire se ''la promesse que je vous ai faite leur porte prejudice ou les contraire''. Dice che però che la parte che le sembra più difficile ''sera de vous satisfaire en temps et lieu car j'en ai encore pour longtemps avant de finir Conuelo, et je ne pourrais faire deux choses à la fois''. Consuelo è un romanzo pubblicato a puntate fra il 1842 e il 1843 e questo permette di collocare la missiva intorno a quegli anni. Falampin fu uno dei fondatori de ''L'Illustration'' e uomo d'affari George Sand tra 1841-1852, anche se la irritò spesso per la sua negligenza e lentezza nel rispondere. Buon esemplare.

Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen.

        Sketches in Afghaunistan [Afghanistan]

      London: Henry Graves & Company; J.W. Allen & Co.; and Day & Haghe 1842 - London: Henry Graves & Company; J.W. Allen & Co.; and Day & Haghe, 1842, First Edition. Large folio – 55.2 × 38.6 cm. Publisher’s green morocco-backed green moiré boards, gilt title on the front board and morocco spine, blind stamped ruling and double-gilt ruling on covers, cream endpapers, re-backed with strengthened gutters, some foxing as usual, but a very good copy indeed. Spine shows rubbing and wear but complete, original covers worn at extremities. Single-tint lithographic title page and 25 similar highly detailed plates, lithographic dedication leaf, letter press leaf of descriptions printed in blue in double column - all original guard-sheets in place. One of the finest illustrated books on Afghanistan, the plates depicting a selection of superb views on the march - Bolan Pass, Quetta, Khojak Pass, Kandahar, and Kabul. James Atkinson, (1780-1852), a surgeon in the Bengal service, was chosen as Superintending Surgeon to the Army of the Indus during the First Afghan War. He was "relieved in the ordinary course of routine shortly after the surrender of Dost Mohammad" and returned to Bengal in 1841 "and thus escaped the fate which awaited the army of occupation". Atkinson retired in 1847, and died in London in 1852. He is perhaps best remembered for his translations from Persian, of these his selections from the Shâh Nâmeh of Firdausi being the most notable, but he evidently possessed considerable artistic abilities. The renderings are skillfully composed, detailed and sensitively colored. Abbey Travel 508; Colas 173; Lipperheide 1493; Tooley 73. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        "Vue af Lerdals badinrättning. Aug. 1849."

      Blyerts och lavyr. 18,5 x 28,8 cm. Osignerad. Monterad på ett större blad. Stäck vistades utomlands för studier 1842-1848 och blev efter hemkomsten varmt mottagen i konstlivet och erkänd som en av landets främsta landskapsmålare. Föryngring präglade Konstakademien, där Stäck genast invaldes. Från sina år i Italien, Frankrike och Tyskland medförde han "färska intryck och fyllda skissböcker" (Serner), och under de närmaste åren utvecklade han en rik och fullödig produktion. Det är ofta ett rent och atmosfärrikt landskapsmåleri. Serner uppmärksammar att Stäck avvek från "samtidens alltmer novellistiska smak" genom att avstå från att befolka sina scener med personstaffage, kreatur och bondforor.. Under 1840-talet inrättades en rad vattenkuranstalter i Sverige, inte att förväxla med de hälsobrunnar som funnits tidigare på många håll. Hälsobrunnarnas verksamhet kretsade kring drickandet av källvatten. Kallvattenkuranstalterna erbjöd däremot en ny form av utvärtes vattenbehandling som lanserats av Vincenz Priessnitz i Gräfenberg i nuvarande Tjeckien på 1830-talet, och som fick sitt genombrott i Sverige vid hälsobrunnen i Söderköping 1842. Lerdals badinrättning i Rättvik togs i drift 1848 av läkaren och nykterhetsvännen Carl Johan Wettergren, och var i stor utsträckning avsedd för ortens obemedlade. Denna intressanta lavering av Stäck är utförd under hans dalaresa följande år, som även efterlämnat skisser från Leksand (9 augusti), Rättvik och Älvdalen (4 september). Samma sommar som Stäck avbildade platsen besöktes badet av självaste H. C. Andersen, som skildrade livet på kuranstalten i sin bok I Sverige (1851): "Den är bekvämt och bra inredd, med trevliga rum, läsesal och badkamrar. Därinne kan du få se dalamumier, - livslevande, frisktblomstrande, rödkindade män, insvepta i filtar, blott huvudet är fritt; det är badgästerna som nyss är komna opp ur kallbadet. Vattenkuranstalten i Rättvik är precis lik den i Gräfenberg i Schlesien. På bordet i läsesalongen ligger böcker och tidningar; här får du på nytt fatt i trådarna till den brusande, oroliga världen, tvärs igenom det tryckta ordets elektromagnetiska ström förnimmer du vad som rör sig och sker därute, och hastar åter till naturen, till solskenet, björkdoften vid Siljans klara sjö". Badinrättningen i Lerdal hade sin storhetstid omkring 1850 men blev kortlivad. Under Krimkriget kommenderades doktor Wettergren till Stockholm, och Lerdalsinrättningen var redan då mer eller mindre nedlagd i brist på medel från länets styrelse. År 1857 hade all verksamhet upphört. Den enda idag kvarvarande resten av anläggningen är en brunnspaviljong kallad "Hvilan" (Carl-Henrik Berg, Oknytt, 1-2 2004)

        The Heraldry of Fish. Notices of the principal families bearing fish in their Arms. For more info about this item, see our RARE FISH BOOKS site

      - John van Voorst, printed by Samuel Bentley, London, 1842. Contemporary full-green Morocco. First edition. Super Octavo (259 x 162 mm), pp.15, 250, with 205 fine wood-cuts in the text. Engravings probably by Mary and Elizabeth Clint. Full green morocco, gilt lettering on spine and 5 raised bands. Second compartment reads Heraldry of Fish, third compartment Moule, and London 1842 on spine heel. Other compartments with gilt emblems. Gilt ornamentation on covers. Gilt bordered dentelles, marbled pastedowns, front and endpapers, top edge gilt. A beautiful and very rare large paper copy. Moule states that, as symbols for names, almost all fish have been used in heraldry. A UNIQUE COPY with 11 ADDITIONAL PLATES of which one is hand-coloured. In many instances fish have been incorporated into the arms to reflect the produce of the state or the family name. The fish displayed on the heraldic device may also be chosen by the bearer of the device because he feels that the particular species displays a characteristic which he admires. Thus the acquaint device has a twofold interest. The subjects in The Heraldry of Fish are arranged according to a natural history form of classification. The book consists of XIV sections. Of particular interest are: V. The salmon, trout, smelt, and grayling, with their enemy the otter; XII. The dog-fish, sea lions, and other monsters; XIII. The seal, mermaid and triton. Among the extra illustrations, some of which are hand-drawn, are: the contre-seal of Godfrey de Lucy, Bishop of Winchester; the autograph, seal and arms of Sir Thomas Lucy; the arms of Walton and Cotton; the ancient seal of the corporation of Swansea; and the arms of van Voorst of Utrecht. The only hand-coloured plate is of Coryphaena hippurus. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Trio [No. 3 in A major] for Piano, Violin and Violoncello. Op. 124. Autograph musical manuscript full score

      - 2 pp. Oblong folio. The first 27 bars of the Scherzo on one page and the final 7 bars of the Andante on the other. With a sketch of the opening 5 bars of the violin part to the Scherzo at the conclusion of the second movement. Headed in another hand: "Manuscript von Louis Spohr. Bruchstück aus dem dritten Trio für Piano, Violine und Cello componiert 1842." Somewhat browned, a bit heavier to edges and folds; creased and very slightly abriaded along folds; several small edge tears and very small holes, just touching notation. Göthel locates autograph manuscripts of sections of this work in Kassel and Braunschweig. The first edition was published in 1843 by Schuberth. Spohr, a friend and contemporary of Beethoven and Weber, was a successful composer, conductor and violinist. He held various notable posts, including that of Kapellmeister in Kassel. His works were performed extensively throughout Europe and he was second only to Mendelssohn in popularity in England. His method for violin is still highly regarded and his chamber music remains very much a part of the standard repertoire. Spohr was "regarded by many contemporaries as worthy of a place beside Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven in the pantheon of the greatest composers. Mozart's Figaro and Wagner's Tristan were both composed during [his] lifetime; his own work looks, Janus-like, towards both the formalism and clarity of the Classical tradition, and the structural and harmonic experimentation associated with 19th-century Romanticism.". In 1836 Spohr married Carl Pfeiffer's 28-year-old sister Marianne, a gifted amateur pianist who stimulated him to compose a series of chamber works with piano, for which he had written little up to that time; these included the three duos concertants for violin and piano (1836-7), the five piano trios (1841-9), the Piano Quintet (1845) and the Septet (1853)."

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      [Wien], 4. V. 1842. - 1 ½ SS. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt. 4to. Mit rotem Siegel. An die Schauspielerin Louise Schönfeld-Neumann (1818-1905), Tochter des Schauspielerehepaars Karl Neumann und Amalie Haizinger: "Ihre gestrige Darstellung hat meine erste Ansicht gerechtfertigt und ich bin stolz darauf, Ihre nicht genug zu rühmende Bescheidenheit zu größerem Selbstvertrauen ermuntert zu haben. Daß nur die Zuversicht Ihren Leistungen fehlte, bewährt sich mit dem sichtlichen Fortschreiten in jeder Ihrer Darstellungen. Sie haben gestern mehr geleistet als Sie selbst wissen, Gaben entfaltet die meine nicht geringen Erwartungen übertrafen! Diese Gaben in das glänzendste Licht zu stellen, wird mir freudige Pflicht unter den vielen herben seyn! [ ]". - Knittrig. - Nach einer schon frühzeitig abgebrochener Beamtenlaufbahn lebte Holbein unter dem Namen Fontano als Musiker, Schauspieler, Maler und Sprachlehrer u. a. in St. Petersburg und Berlin, wo er E. T. A. Hoffmann und August Wilhelm Iffland kennenlernte. Sein bekanntestes Stück ("Fridolin", 1808) brachte ihm die Ernennung zum Hausdichter am Theater an der Wien. Nach Stationen in Bamberg, Würzburg, Prag und Hannover kehrte er als Direktor des Wiener Burgtheaters (1841-49) und Ökonomiedirektor beider Hofbühnen nach Wien zurück. Er führte u. a. 1844 die Autorentantieme am Burgtheater ein, rief verbilligte Nachmittagsvorstellungen ins Leben und war 1846 Mitbegründer des Bühnenkartellvereins.

        BIBLIOMANIA; OR BOOK MADNESS; A BIBLIOGRAPHICAL ROMANCE ... NEW AND IMPROVED EDITION ...

      London: Henry G. Bohn, 1842. Large, thick octavo. Full dark brown crushed levant, gilt extra, by Zaehnsdorf (with their additional small paraph on rear pastedown). Frontispieces and engraved plates. Pages 1-18 and 375-8 printed on inferior paper and uniformly darkened (with small chip to one blank foretip), trace of light foxing early and late, otherwise a very good copy, in a handsome binding. Bookplate on front pastedown. First combined edition. The text of the 1809 first edition is bound at the end with its own separate title and register. The prefatory note to the 1811 edition follows the "Advertisement" for this edition. According to Windle & Pippin, the edition consisted of 500 copies, of which 50 or 55 were printed on large paper, and there is some variation of the order of placement of the elements between some copies. This is the ordinary issue, and was issued without the two plates specially executed for the large paper copies. Tipped in the front of this copy is a brief a.l.s. from Dibdin, 31 August 1842, to a prominent London bookseller, "Mr. [Joseph] Lilly Bookseller, 19 King Street, Covent Garden." He writes: "Dear Sir / I wait in Town almost entirely for your 'gentle response.' 'What news from Rialto?' T.F. Dibdin." Tipped to the bottom blank margin of the letter are two early relevant news clippings. Joseph Lilly was among the chief booksellers who had a hand in the formation of Huth's library. The oft-reprinted sentimental classic for several generations of book collectors, even if it does occasionally cast barbs at some of the more obsessive traits of some members of its constituency.

      1842. The Crucial Decision that Undercut the Fugitive Slave Act [Trial]. Prigg, Edward, Plaintiff in Error. Peters, Richard [1780-1848], Reporter. Report of the Case of Edward Prigg Against the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Argued and Adjudged in the Supreme Court of the United States, At January Term, 1842. In Which it was Decided That All the Laws of the Several States Relative to Fugitive Slaves are Unconstitutional and Void: And that Congress Have the Exclusive Power of Legislation on the Subject of Fugitive Slaves Escaping into Other States. Philadelphia: Stereotyped by L. Johnson, 1842. 140 pp. Octavo (9-3/4" x 6"). Recent quarter cloth over marbled boards, gilt title to spine. Light toning and foxing to text. Ex-library. Small inkstamps to edges and head of title page. A nice copy in a handsome binding. * Only edition. A landmark in the history of American slavery, Prigg v. Pennsylvania was the first Supreme Court case to address the state and Federal laws concerning fugitive slaves, most notably the Federal Fugitive Slave Act of 1793. Prigg, a Maryland slave-catcher, apprehended Margaret Moran, an alleged fugitive slave, in Pennsylvania and brought her back to Maryland. Pennsylvania convicted him for kidnapping because he failed to obtain a state-mandated Certificate of Removal, a court document permitting the capture of a fugitive slave. The U.S. Supreme Court reversed the decision. In an opinion written by Justice Story, the Court held that Congress had the exclusive power to regulate the treatment of fugitive slaves. Thus Pennsylvania's requirement of a Certificate of Removal was illegal under the Constitution. The Court held that slave-catchers could seize alleged fugitives without judicial approval. However, and more important, the Court also said the Federal government lacked the authority to compel state officials to enforce the Fugitive Slave Act. In sum, Prigg v. Pennsylvania undercut the power of that act. Anger in the slave states over this decision led to the Compromise of 1850, which compelled the governments and residents of free states to enforce the capture and return of fugitive slaves.
