        An Act to amend the Law affecting transported Convicts with respect to Pardons and Tickets of Leave. (Cap. VII)

      George Eyre and Andrew Spottiswoode, London 1843 - Printed bifolium, [109]-111, last blank, armorial letterhead, fine. An important Act defining the rights of convicts to property earned through their own labour. The penal system in Australia had long incorporated the Ticket-of-Leave system wherein convicts were granted the right to work for wages and so 'employ themselves for their own benefit'. The Act begins by limiting the powers of the Governor or Lieutenant-Governor (as in the case of Van Diemen's Land) to issue absolute or conditional pardons to transported felons. Remission of any sentence of transportation must henceforth be submitted to the Secretary of State for approval on behalf of the Crown. This legislation significantly reduced the power and autonomy of the Governor as final and independent arbiter of the destiny of convicts under his control. The third clause consolidates the law regarding the private property of convicts. Given that Ticket-of-Leave holders can acquire personal property, it is to be protected under the full power of the law 'notwithstanding his or her Conviction of Felony'. Thus the inalienable law of private property is formally extended to convicts who have legally acquired it. Interestingly, this clause defends the right of convicts in protecting their property if challenged in court on the basis of their past felonies. Notwithstanding, the system remains contingent upon good behaviour, for if the Ticket-of-Leave is revoked 'all property so acquired by any such Felon shall vest absolutely in Her Majesty, and shall be disposed of at the discretion of the Governor or Lieutenant Governor?' It is significant that property so defined in the Act excludes land (aside from a lease or tenancy agreement). Ownership of land was prohibited until any convict had received their pardon.

        Original woodblock illustrated poster for Wombwell's Royal Menagerie

      London: printed by J.W. Peel, circa, 1843. Large poster, 750 x 253 mm., assorted letterpress with bold woodblock illustrations; folded with a touch of peripheral wear, neat restoration, but a remarkably well preserved example. The famous Wombwell's menagerie. An attractive survival from the golden age of Victorian travelling shows: a poster from Wombwell's travelling menagerie featuring striking woodblock prints of exotic animals including a kangaroo, zebra, rhinoceros, leopard and an elephant. George Wombwell 1777-1850 was one of the most successful travelling zoological exhibitors of Victorian England. Separating fact from fiction surrounding Wombwell's life is difficult, a task compounded by his ceaseless self-promotion and aggrandisement. Like many showmen of the era, Wombwell fraternised with a broad cross section of society, from tavern drunks to the Royal family. Indeed, he is credited with advising Prince Albert on the wellbeing of the Royal hounds. We do know that Wombwell was successful. A shoemaker by trade, Wombwell moved to London in the early nineteenth century. His first foray was the purchase two boa constrictors from a vessel newly arrived from Rio de Janeiro for the then considerable sum of £75. Nonetheless, he soon made a handsome profit displaying the fearsome snakes at local taverns. From this humble beginning, Wombwell built one of the largest travelling animal displays of the early Victorian era. Word spread amongst sailors and travellers that he paid ready money for live animals, and Wombwell personally met incoming ships from Australia, Africa and South America to purchase specimens for the show. By 1839 the menagerie exceeded a dozen wagons and was supplemented by a brass band. Wombwell tried his hand at breeding animals, and was the first to successfully rear a lion in England. Travelling menageries were an important medium of popular education and they certainly attracted huge crowds who gained an opportunity to witness exotic animals such as the kangaroo firsthand. Given the relatively recent discovery of Australia, marsupials and similar animals continued to excite widespread curiosity. By virtue of their ephemeral nature posters such as this example rarely survive. This copy has been carefully preserved, and bears two manuscript notes to the margins reading "Hull Fair, 1843" and "Mr. Wombwell attended Bartholomew fair many years

        Warrant for the transfer of five convicts from Norfolk Gaol to Millbank Prison prior to transportation

      Norwich & London: 8 November, 1843. Bifolium sheet, the first two pages comprising letterpress, the remainder blank, manuscript notations in two hands; well preserved with old folds. To Tasmania, 'free from any putrid or infectious distemper'. Original warrant confirming the transfer of five convicts to Millbank Prison from Norfolk jail as a prelude to transportation. The warrant is signed and dated, with manuscript details of six named convicts. The warrant authorises movement of the convicts only after they had been examined by a Medical Officer and declared 'free from any putrid or infectious distemper'. The convicts named are Robert Lincoln (alias Thomas Dove), Ellis Love, Joseph Wickham, William Chapman, Jason Howes and another man surnamed Cann (although the truncated first name is not recognisable). A manuscript note at conclusion of the warrant states 'Received into the Millbank Prison this 8th day of Nov. 1843 the Convicts named in the margin of the foregoing warrant. For the Governor Sam. Hatchard.' The document was issued at a time of increased transportation. Due to the social upheaval brought by the Industrial Revolution, crime and rates of conviction reached unprecedented levels by the early 1840's. A spike in the transportation of felons, especially to Van Diemen's Land, was a direct consequence. Such was the fate of Ellis Love, one of the convict listed in this warrant who was shipped to Van Diemen's Land aboard the transport Equestrian in January 1844 to complete a ten year sentence.

        Reports of the Special Assistant Poor Law Commissioners on the Employment of Women and Children in Agriculture

      London: W Clowes and Sons, 1843 First Edition. A very good copy. 8vo.,.Nicholls was one of the principal architects of the administration of the Poor Law. The report offered here was overseen by him immediately upon his return from a difficult stay in Ireland where he was responsible for changing the old system of poor relief by enforcing the regulations of the 1834 act. The report on the employment of women and children in agriculture is based on the reality of rural labor in four counties in the England. It is a landmark in social history of the period.

      Cassel, 1843. <p>Stilling, Benedikt (1810-79). Autograph letter signed, in German, to Herr Enke(?). Cassel, July 31, 1843. 2pp. plus integral blank. 214 x 133 mm. Mounted. Fine.</p><p>From German neurologist Benedikt Stilling, who named the vasomotor nerves in his Physiologisch-pathologische und medicinisch-praktische Untersuchungen über die Spinal-Irritation (1840) to his publisher. Stilling is also remembered for introducing a procedure of serial-section portrayal (thin slicing) of spinal cord specimens for histological study, and for having performed the first ovariotomy in Germany. His name is associated with "Stilling&#39;s canal" (a small channel running through the vitreous humor between the optic disk nerve and the lens) and the "Fleece of Stilling" (a mesh of myelinated fibers surrounding the dentate nucleus of the cerebellum).</p><p>Stilling&#39;s letter can be translated as follows:</p><p>"Dear Mr. Enke, I fully agree with the contract and other information you sent. I will therefore send you the contract with my signature and also will have it notarized. I will send the letter today to Mr. Ritmüller . . . Then the printing of the plates can begin. Today the largest of my plates was successfully finished by [&#133;]. In a fortnight another one will be ready. Then five completed plates will be printed in Göttingen. You will have then eight new trial printings to enjoy-I hope.

        On the Calorific Effects of Magneto-Electricity, and the Mechanical Value of Heat" in The London, Edinburgh, and Dublin Philosophical Magazine and Journal of Science 23, 1843, pp. 263-276; 347-355; and 435-443

      FIRST EDITION OF THE DISCOVERY AND DEMONSTRATION OF THE EQUIVALENCE OF HEAT AND ENERGY. In this 1843 paper, a greatly expanded version of a presentation he gave before the British Association earlier in that year, Joule clearly states that heat is a form of energy and that motion and heat are mutually interchangeable. Building upon the work of Rumford and Thompson, Joule shows that the heating effect he had quantified in 1841 was due to generation of heat in the conductor and not its transfer from another part of the equipment. His paper provided "experimental proof of the mechanical equivalent of heat for physical phenomena" and "was fundamental to the establishment of the principle of the conservation of energy" (PMM, p. 196); Norman 1143). Here "Joule noted the relationship between the amount of heat generated by an electric current in a conductor and the resistance of the conductor, and the creation of heat when water was forced through narrow tubes or through a paddle wheel" (Norman). "Causing the potential energy of a raised weight to be used up in turning a paddle which generated heat by stirring water in a vessel, and observing the rise of temperature so produced, Joule found that 772 foot-pounds of work served to heat one pound of water through one degree (Fahrenheit) on the thermometer he employed, at a particular part of the scale" (Thermodynamics of Engineers, 10). From this Joule concluded that heat was a form of energy; still further, he was able to calculate that in any given system, the sum total of energy was constant and convertible" (Norman 1143). Joule called the amount of work (in foot-pounds) required to create a unit of heat &#39;the mechanical equivalent of heat&#39; and argued that because motion and heat were mutually interchangeable, in every single case, a given amount of work would generate the same amount of heat (assuming the work rendered is completely converted to heat energy). CONDITION & DETAILS: (8.5 x 5.5 inches; 213 x 138mm). [viii], 552, [2]. Joule paper: pp. 263-276; 347-355; and 435-443.

        Chapter Two. The Lakes. Summer on the Lakes, in 1843

      Sumnerville, MI. 2014. Artist&#39;s book, unique the first in a series of two containing the text of Chapter Two of Margaret Fuller&#39;s first book, an account of her journey from Boston through the Great Lakes, this on Epson Premium Presentation Matte paper, with artist&#39;s statement on first page of text, signed and dated by the artist in pencil on the back flyleaf. Page size: 5.75 x 6 x 4.5 inches; 290 leaves. Box size: 9.75 x 9 x 8.5 inches. Bound by the artist: sewn in gold cloth over boards, green brocade cloth over boards panels affixed to front and back, decorated with green and gold crystal beads on spine and brass nail heads in all-over studded pattern, large brass medallion below title on front panel, similar button and crystal ornament on spine, title and author printed in black on sepia photograph of water inset into middle of front cover, handmade red paper endpapers, gold and white headbands, wrapped in green and gold damask cloth, patterned with gold feathers, quilted, sling with gold beading and braid with fringe each 1/2 inch wide at either end with which to lift book from box, housed in custom-made silk cloth and paper over boards footed and lift-off lid box with TruVue non-reflective glass insert in lid, the sides of the box lined with gold cloth over which are affixed images of Chicago as it was in the first half of the 19th century, old map of the Great Lakes and image of Native Americans, images affixed with decorative brass tacks and mounted on Japanese black and gold hand-made paper, and the interior of the box with gold silk insert at bottom; sides and lid lined with a different black and gold hand-made paper. The box sits on base of gold fabric over boards which extends about an inch out to form a pedestal that sets on gold-gilt ball feet. Lid of same green brocade used to bind book with copper and rings and brown stone beads drilled with green ribbon tassels, green and gold crystals surround exterior of box.& & Eugenie Torgerson has used the text from Margaret Fuller&#39;s first book, SUMMER ON THE LAKES, IN 1843 for her inspired images of the western prairie that was Chicago in 1843. Ms. Torgerson created digital compositions from her own photographs, pastel drawings and contemporary materials which she printed with an Epson Stylus Photo R2400 with Epson UltraChrome K3 ink on Yupo, a 100% Polypropylene, neutral pH, acid-freed substrate which she then waxed. The text is also printed with Epson UltraChrome K3 ink in 10pt. Times New Roman with the titles in Goudy Old Style in 12, 14 and 18pt. The transcription pages are printed in Bickham Script Pro, based on the lettering of 18th century writing as rendered in the engravings of George Bickham&#39;s THE UNIVERSAL PENMAN. The book combines text broken up with images of the prairie and micro-shots of Lake Michigan. Ms. Torgerson has presented Fuller&#39;s text almost horizontally and broken up the black and white text with images of the prairie throughout the year. The text also appears, here and there, as transcriptions printed in script, viewed only as magnified phrases rather than a complete sentences or paragraphs. The pages of images, then transcribed text, printed in script and manipulated on various backgrounds, as well as the actual text, are interspersed with page cream, green or red hand-made papers. There are also varnished sheets of clear paper separating the images and text that also serve to obscure the view of the preceding and succeeding images - much as the spray of water would do. & & Fuller&#39;s brilliant book is much more than an account of her voyage with fellow Transcendentalists, Sarah Clarke and her brother James Freeman Clarke, from Boston to Niagara Falls, Mackinac Island, and Rock River, Illinois. It is as much a meditation on her own life as well as life in America. In this second chapter, Fuller travels from Niagara Falls to Chicago, with stops along the way. She notes, "At first, the prairie seemd to speak of the very desolation of dullness...But after I had rode out and seen the sun set with that calmness seen only in the prairies...I began to love it because I began to know the scene, and shrank no longer from &#39;the encircling vastness." Her reaction to Chicago is not limited to the beauty of the landscape. She notes, "There can be no two places in the world more completely thoroughfares than this place [Chicago] and Buffalo. They are the two correspondent valves that open and shut all the time, the life-blood rushes from east to west, and back again from west to east." She writes about the land, "In Chicago I first saw the beautiful prairie flowers. They were in their glory the first ten days we were there - &#39;The golden and the flame-like flowers." Torgerson&#39;s images combine with text to form a book and book sculpture, recalling another earlier time but still completely contemporary. <br>See an <A HREF= http://www.bookrouter.com/im/juvelisbks/10784.jpg >Image.</A><br>

        Chapter Two. The Lakes. Summer on the Lakes, in 1843

      Sumnerville, MI. 2014. Artist&#39;s book, unique the first in a series of two containing the text of Chapter Two of Margaret Fuller&#39;s first book, an account of her journey from Boston through the Great Lakes, this on Epson Premium Presentation Matte paper, with artist&#39;s statement on first page of text, signed and dated by the artist in pencil on the back flyleaf. Page size: 5.75 x 6 x 4.5 inches; 290 leaves. Box size: 9.75 x 9 x 8.5 inches. Bound by the artist: sewn in gold cloth over boards, green brocade cloth over boards panels affixed to front and back, decorated with green and gold crystal beads on spine and brass nail heads in all-over studded pattern, large brass medallion below title on front panel, similar button and crystal ornament on spine, title and author printed in black on sepia photograph of water inset into middle of front cover, handmade red paper endpapers, gold and white headbands, wrapped in green and gold damask cloth, patterned with gold feathers, quilted, sling with gold beading and braid with fringe each 1/2 inch wide at either end with which to lift book from box, housed in custom-made silk cloth and paper over boards footed and lift-off lid box with TruVue non-reflective glass insert in lid, the sides of the box lined with gold cloth over which are affixed images of Chicago as it was in the first half of the 19th century, old map of the Great Lakes and image of Native Americans, images affixed with decorative brass tacks and mounted on Japanese black and gold hand-made paper, and the interior of the box with gold silk insert at bottom; sides and lid lined with a different black and gold hand-made paper. The box sits on base of gold fabric over boards which extends about an inch out to form a pedestal that sets on gold-gilt ball feet. Lid of same green brocade used to bind book with copper and rings and brown stone beads drilled with green ribbon tassels, green and gold crystals surround exterior of box.&#11;&#11;Eugenie Torgerson has used the text from Margaret Fuller&#39;s first book, SUMMER ON THE LAKES, IN 1843 for her inspired images of the western prairie that was Chicago in 1843. Ms. Torgerson created digital compositions from her own photographs, pastel drawings and contemporary materials which she printed with an Epson Stylus Photo R2400 with Epson UltraChrome K3 ink on Yupo, a 100% Polypropylene, neutral pH, acid-freed substrate which she then waxed. The text is also printed with Epson UltraChrome K3 ink in 10pt. Times New Roman with the titles in Goudy Old Style in 12, 14 and 18pt. The transcription pages are printed in Bickham Script Pro, based on the lettering of 18th century writing as rendered in the engravings of George Bickham&#39;s THE UNIVERSAL PENMAN. The book combines text broken up with images of the prairie and micro-shots of Lake Michigan. Ms. Torgerson has presented Fuller&#39;s text almost horizontally and broken up the black and white text with images of the prairie throughout the year. The text also appears, here and there, as transcriptions printed in script, viewed only as magnified phrases rather than a complete sentences or paragraphs. The pages of images, then transcribed text, printed in script and manipulated on various backgrounds, as well as the actual text, are interspersed with page cream, green or red hand-made papers. There are also varnished sheets of clear paper separating the images and text that also serve to obscure the view of the preceding and succeeding images - much as the spray of water would do. &#11;&#11;Fuller&#39;s brilliant book is much more than an account of her voyage with fellow Transcendentalists, Sarah Clarke and her brother James Freeman Clarke, from Boston to Niagara Falls, Mackinac Island, and Rock River, Illinois. It is as much a meditation on her own life as well as life in America. In this second chapter, Fuller travels from Niagara Falls to Chicago, with stops along the way. She notes, "At first, the prairie seemd to speak of the very desolation of dullness...But after I had rode out and seen the sun set with that calmness seen only in the prairies...I began to love it because I began to know the scene, and shrank no longer from &#39;the encircling vastness." Her reaction to Chicago is not limited to the beauty of the landscape. She notes, "There can be no two places in the world more completely thoroughfares than this place [Chicago] and Buffalo. They are the two correspondent valves that open and shut all the time, the life-blood rushes from east to west, and back again from west to east." She writes about the land, "In Chicago I first saw the beautiful prairie flowers. They were in their glory the first ten days we were there - &#39;The golden and the flame-like flowers." Torgerson&#39;s images combine with text to form a book and book sculpture, recalling another earlier time but still completely contemporary. See an Image.

        JUDAH&#146;S LION

      New York; John S. Taylor. 1843. Hardcover. Publishers cloth. 12mo. 358 pages. 19 cm. First US edition. Singerman 0833. This novel is considered to be the first English language &#145;Zionist Novel&#146; (it predates George Eliot&#146;s &#145;Daniel Deronda&#146; by thirty years); the story concerns the return of an English Jew (Alick) to the Holy Land; it binds together English and Jewish history.This was the last novel the author wrote. Charlotte Elizabeth Tonna (1790-1846) wrote on the plight of English factory workers, was well known in her time for her novels and her Orange-Protestant essays and poems, was passionate about gardening, a pioneer of deaf education, and also wrote children&#146;s stories. In her later years she defended the rights of Judaism, and in her last three years was a close friend of Moses Montefiore, owing to her fundraising on behalf of the Jews of Mogador in 1844 (she raised the most money of anyone for the Jewish community in the besieged Moroccan coastal city), her public protest against the policies of Tsar Nicholas I towards Jews, and her 1844 letter to the Bishop of Jerusalem, entitled &#145;Israel&#146;s Ordinances.&#146; &#147;As Tonna&#146;s health deteriorated rapidly, the Montefiores became devoted friends. When she set out on her final journey to Ramsgate from London, it was Montefiore who bade her farewell at the train station and handed her a basket of grapes.&#147; (Pg. 215; &#145;Moses Montefiore: Jewish Liberator, Imperial Hero&#146;; by Abigail Green). Her work, "Days of Old,&#146; by Charlotte Elizabeth (Mrs. Tonner)&#148; was part of the sixth volume published by the American Jewish Publication Society in 1847 (Jewish Miscellany no. VI; which also includes two works by Isaac Leeser, &#147;Rachel Levi, A Tale&#148; and &#147;The Jews and Their Religion&#148;), two years after the society was founded by Isaac Leeser (EJ 1906; American Jewish Publication Society).

Neurypnology; or, the rationale of nervous sleep, considered in relation with animal magnetism. xxii, 265, [1, addenda and errata]pp. London: John Churchill; Edinburgh: Adam & Charles Black, 1843. 170 x 107 mm. Original green cloth, blindstamped, title in gilt on spine, tiny split in front hinge, small stain on back cover; boxed. Very good copy. Gift inscription dated 1845 on front free endpaper.</p><p>First Edition of the first full-length scientific treatise on what is now known as hypnotism. Braid, a Manchester surgeon, began a scientific investigation of mesmerism in the early 1840s and soon became convinced that the effects produced did not depend on a physical &#147;magnetic influence&#148; passing from practitioner to subject, but instead were subjective phenomena caused by physiological changes in the person mesmerized (he would later reject his early physiological theory for others that gave greater recognition to suggestibility and psychic state). When he published Neurypnology Braid did not yet have a full understanding of the psychological processes involved in hypnosis, believing that hypnotic phenomena were produced by functional changes in the nervous, muscular, circulatory and respiratory systems. However, he did recognize that hypnosis was a subjective phenomenon, dependent entirely on the state of mind of the hypnotized and not on any mystical fluid or occult magical power wielded by the hypnotizer. Braid&#39;s methods of hypnosis were published in France circa 1860, where they exerted an important influence on the work of Broca, Charcot, Liébeault and Bernheim, whose teachings in turn influenced the work of Sigmund Freud.

Very good set. </p><p>First Edition of &#147;the most important source about British mesmerism of the period&#148; (Gault, p. 206), and an invaluable reference for contemporary ideas and developments not only in mesmerism (hypnosis) but also in phrenology, neurology and psychiatry. The journal was founded and edited by Dr. John Elliotson, Britain&#146;s leading advocate of mesmerism, who in 1843 had performed the first surgical operation on a patient anesthetized via hypnosis. &#147;It was round The Zoist, and hence of course round Elliotson, that British mesmerism centered during its period of most active expansion, from 1843 until the early 1850s. Popular practitioners looked up to it, even though they perhaps resented its lofty tone. More serious and more educated adherents subscribed, contributed and sent in cases; interested outsiders turned to it to find out more. . . . Setting aside articles on phrenology, mesmeric cures of disease fill the greatest percentage of its pages, followed by cases of surgical operations performed with mesmeric anesthesia&#148; (Gault, pp. 207-208). One of the most prolific contributors to the journal was Scottish surgeon James Esdaile, who performed over a hundred painless operations on mesmerized patients in the 1840s while stationed in India; a partial list of these operations, including the amputation of an arm and breast and the removal of 17 scrotal tumors, is included in the 1846 volume of The Zoist.

        Auf einer Rasenbank am Hang sitzendes strickendes Bauernmädchen, rechts im Mittelgrund Frauen auf der Bleiche, im Hintergrund Dächer und Kirchturm einer hessischen Ortschaft.

      . Öl, auf Leinwand, rechts unten signiert und datiert "P. Rumpf 1843". 41,5:37 cm. Provenienz: Aus deutscher oder österreichischer Privatsammlung. Vergleichsliteratur: Ausst. Katalog: Philipp Rumpf (1821-1896). Kronberg/Ts., Receptur, 1996, Nr. 1, Farbtafel 1, Nr. 22, Abb. S. 69. Unser Bild zeigt eine für die bäuerliche Genremalerei typische Darstellung und stammt aus der frühen von Jakob Becker beeinflußten Schaffensphase. Auch in Komposition und Farbgebung wird dessen Einfluß und der der Düsseldorfer Schule deutlich. Das Motiv des am Boden sitzenden Bauernmädchens geht ebenfalls auf die Motivwelt Jakob Beckers zurück.. Philipp Rumpf, Sohn eines Frankfurter Konditors, durchlief eine breit gefächerte künstlerische Ausbildung. Da er zum Nachfolger im Geschäft seines Vaters bestimmt war, studierte er neben seiner Lehre als Konditor in seiner Geburtsstadt am Städelschen Kunstinstitut. 1835 besuchte er den Elementarunterricht in freier Handzeichnung bei Karl Friedrich Wendelstadt (1786-1840), 1836-1838 den Elementarunterricht im Modellieren bei dem Bildhauer Johann Nepomuk Zwerger (1796-1868), seit 1838 die Malklasse von Friedrich Maximilian Hessemer (1800-1860) und dann den Unterricht von Heinrich Franz Gaudenz von Rustige (1810-1890). 1842 wurde er schließlich Meisterschüler des aus Düsseldorf kommenden Genremalers Jakob Becker (1810-1872). Daneben spielte die Bekanntschaft mit Jakob Fürchtegott Dielmann (1809-1885) für seine künstlerische Entwicklung eine nicht unbedeutende Rolle. Nach Abschluß des Studiums mietete er gemeinsam mit Anton Burger (1824-1905) ein Atelier - eine lebenslange Freundschaft verband die Malerkollegen. Seit 1846 sind erste gemeinsame Fahrten nach Kronberg zu belegen, wo Rumpf zunächst die Sommermonate verbrachte und seit 1873 ein Atelier in der Kronberger Burg unterhielt. Zum Lebensunterhalt erteilte er seit 1844 erfolgreich Privatunterricht, richtete dann eine Schule für Zeichnen, Aquarell- und Ölmalerei ein; daneben unternahm er Reisen nach München, Dresden, Paris und Oberitalien. Neben Ausstellungsbeteiligungen in Frankfurt zeigte er seine Arbeiten in Hamburg, München, Dresden und Wien. Rumpf zählt neben Dielmann und Burger zu den Hauptvertretern der Kronberger Malerkolonie. Sein Schaffensschwerpunkt lag auf Gemälden, Aquarellen, Pastellen und Radierungen mit Interieur- und Genreszenen, zumeist mit Kindern, Mädchen und jungen Frauen, zudem malte er Landschaften und Bildnisse.

        Ponte Nomentano in der Römischen Campagna mit Staffagen links auf dem Weg.

      . Bleistift und Pinsel in Dunkelbraun, auf cremefarbenem Velin. Ca. 15,5:25 cm. Verso zwei Entwurfskizzen südlicher Landschaften, rechts unten datiert "9/5 66.". Am Oberrand auf Untersatz montiert. Provenienz: Sammlung Joseph Heilmair (1843-1923). Rechts und unten ungleich beschnitten.. Die frei und flott gemalte Entwurfzeichnung stammt sicher aus einem Skizzenbuch. In der Städtischen Galerie Würzburg befindet sich eine Bleistiftzeichnung von 1866, die ebenfalls den Ponte Nomentano und die Römische Campagna zeigt, nur vom näheren Standpunkt aus (vgl. Ausst. Katalog: August Wilhelm Geist (1835-1868), Städtische Galerie Würzburg, Würzburg 1985, Abb. 38, S. 52 und S. 67). Aus einer Künstlerfamilie stammend, nahm Geist zunächst Unterricht bei seinem Vater, dem Würzburger Maler A. Geist (1803-1860). 1848-1850 setzte er an der Städtischen Gewerbeschule und 1850-1853 am Polytechnischen Zentralverein seine Ausbildung fort und beendete sie 1853 in München bei dem Landschaftsmaler F. Bamberger (1814-1873). 1854 unternahm er zum Landschaftsstudium eine Rhönreise, da er vom Würzburger Polytechnischen Verein den Auftrag erhalten hatte, Landschaftsveduten aus der Gegend anzufertigen. 1855 kehrte er nach München zurück. Es folgten Motive aus der fränkischen Schweiz und vom Starnberger See. Starken Einfluß übte die Malerei J.W. Schirmers (1807-1863) auf ihn aus, dessen Werke er 1859 in Karlsruhe studierte. 1861 unternahm er eine Rheinreise. In dieser Zeit schloß er Freundschaft mit H. von Marees (1837-1887), den er 1861 auf dem Weg nach Köln und Antwerpen in Koblenz besuchte und mit dem er die Reise nach Köln fortsetzte. Eine schwere Erkrankung brachte 1864/1865 eine Reise nach Reichenhall. Obwohl der Aufenthalt keine wirkliche Besserung bewirkt hatte, ging er im darauffolgenden Jahr nach Rom. Dort unterhielt er gemeinsam mit F. Preller d.J. (1838-1901) ein Atelier. 1867 kehrte er nach München zurück. Geist zählt sicher zu den bedeutendsten Landschaftsmalern Mainfrankens, wenn auch sein früher Tod im Alter von 33 Jahren als Folge einer wohl langjährigen Tuberkulose die vielversprechende Malerlaufbahn jäh beendete.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Wiesbaden, 18. XI. 1843.. 1½ SS. auf Doppelblatt. 4to. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief).. An den Sänger Ludwig Cramolini (1805-1884) in Darmstadt: "So eben von Frankfurt zurückgekehrt, wo ich einige Tage zubrachte, erhalte ich zu meinem größten Erstaunen ein Schreiben von Dir, das vom 16. Okt. datiert ist [...] Dies zu meiner Rechtfertigung, da Du wahrscheinlich inzwischen gedacht haben wirst: 'Der Frank ist ein Flegel, der mir nicht antwortet.' Die Unpässlichkeit meiner Frau hat sich seither als Schwangerschaft herausgestellt und sie mußte somit die ehrenvollen Einladungen, die ihr von Mannheim, Stuttgart und Prag wurden, ablehnen, da ihr der Arzt fürs Erste das Auftreten verbothen hat, was ihr um so unangenehmer ist, als sie sich brillant bei Stimme fühlt. Von Mangold habe ich ein Schreiben erhalten [...] worin er meine Frau eine Gastrolle biethet. Du siehst wohl ein, daß es meiner Frau das Ehrgefühl verbothen haben würde, selbst wenn sie singen dürfte, eine Gastrolle anzunehmen. In etwa 3-4 Wochen wird sie wieder kampffähig sein und wenn sich dann Gelegenheit zum Gastspiele findet, wird sie mit Freuden wieder thätig sein [...] Dräxler[-Manfred] trägt mir auf, Dich zu grüßen [...]". - Gustav von Frank leitete von 1841 bis 1843 das Theater in Pest. Von 1845 bis 1847 Redakteur der "Wiener Zeitschrift für Kunst, Literatur und Mode", wurde er 1848 Schriftleiter des "Wiener Bürgerblattes" (später "Wiener Demokratisches Bürgerblatt"). Er mußte als Mitglied der Akademischen Legion nach der Niederwerfung der Revolution 1848 über Leipzig nach London fliehen, wo er in Armut seinem Leben ein Ende setzte. - Bl. 2 mit kleinem Ausschnitt durch Siegelbruch;
