        Théâtre Akademique der rühmlichst bekannten Geschwister Bäse, verbunden mit der weltberühmten Somnambüle, Nachfolgerin der Madame Lenormand, welche auf ihrer Durchreise, während ihres Hierseins einige Vorstellungen geben wird. (...) Die berühmte Somnambüle, Nachfolgerin der Mad. Lenormand, welche durch magnetischen Schlaf die Kunst besitzt, das Glück des Menschen von der Wiege bis zum Grabe auf das Deutlichste zu prophezeihen. (Unterzeichner:) Henry Bäse aus Braunschweig.

      Plakat mit typograph. Text und 5 Holzschnitten. Blattgr.: 58 x 42 cm. Sehr berühmt oder erfolgreich mögen die Geschwister Bäse nicht gewesen sein, zumindest konnte ich keine weiteren Auftritte nachweisen. Als Nachfolgerinnen der berühmten französischen Wahrsagerin Marie Anne Lenormand (gest. 1843) bezeichneten sich zahlreiche Gauklerinnen auf europäischen Jahrmärkten. - Neben diesem Auftritt gab es u. a. noch: Ikarische Sylphiden-Gespiele der vier Brüder Bäse, Japanische Spiele und "La Trapez volonta" mit Rudolph Düsterhoff und "Dispensations adriennes" mit Frl. Linna Bäse. - Die hübschen Holzschnitte zeigen u. a. die Wahrsagerin mit verbunden Augen und einen feinen Herrn, dem wohl gerade die Zukunft vorhergesagt wird. Linke Ecken mit etwas Abschnitt, der obere linke Rand auf ca. 7 cm etwas beschnitten.

        Gedichte (Ausgabe 1843, mit dem Vorwort "Lebensumstände des Dichters" von Gustav und Christoph Schwab von 1842)

      Stuttgart und Tübingen 1843, Kl. 8, gewachstes Leinen, vorderer Einband und Buchrücken mit goldgeprägtem, reich ziseliertem Buchschmuck und umlaufendem goldem Buchschnitt. Mit einem Stahlstich-Frontispiz im Profil XX, 196 Seiten. Minimale Gebrauchsspuren am oberen und unteren Falz, Buchbindung innen fachmännisch restauriert, tadelloses Exemplar dieser seltenen frühen Gedicht-Monographie, erschienen in seinem Todesjahr 1843. Vorwort "Lebensumstände des Dichters" von Gustav und Christian Schwab, Stuttgart im Oktober 1842. Aus einem früheren großbürgerlichen Sammlerhaushalt. Sehr selten. Editorischer Hintergrund: Zu Hölderlins Lebzeiten (1770-1843) wurde nur ein Teil seines lyrischen Werkes veröffentlicht, erst in der zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts wurden einige bis dahin unbekannte Texte aus der Zeit nach 1800 herausgegeben zuvor waren vom Spätwerk fast nur die sogenannten Nachtgesänge bekannt. Die Gedichte selbst wurden zwar 1826 erstmals veröffentlicht, aber noch unter der Herausgeberschaft von Ludwig Uhland und Christoph Theodor Schwab. Das hier vorliegende kleine Buch der "Gedichte" ist deshalb editionshistorisch gesehen die erste "echte" Monographie, zu der die früheren Herausgeber dann nur das Vorwort schrieben. Eine erste Gesamtausgabe erschein dann drei Jahre später 1846 unter der Feder von C.T. Schwab, der im selben Jahr auch die erste Biographie Hölderlins veröffentlichte.

"Allen's diary offers a perceptive vision of the landscapes bringing to mind Biblical scenes of the Old Testament Â… Youthful and exuberant at the campaign's advent, the diary reflects an older and more mature cleric by its end" (Riddick). Ownership inscription of William Ord Mackenzie, assistant surgeon King's Dragoon Guards to the retained original front free endpaper, and a few informed pencil marginalia in his hand. Mackenzie, M.D. Edinburgh 1837, joined the staff as assistant surgeon in 1839 the King's Dragoon Guards being his first posting.

Mackenzie's detailed diary of this period is now held by the Fisher Library, University of Toronto.

(Zweiter Jahrgang, Nr. 53 - Nr. 104) Wöchentliche Nachrichten über alle Ereignisse, Zustände und Persönlichkeiten der Gegenwart, über Tagesgeschichte, öffentliches und gesellschaftliches Leben, Handel, Gewerbe und Landwirtschaft, Wissenschaft und Kunst, Musik, Theater und Moden.

      (IV), 420 (IV) 420 Seiten mit sehr zahlreichen teilsganzseitigen Holzstich-Illustrationen. 37,5 x 27,5 cm, zeitgenössischer schwarzer Leinenband mit blindgeprägtem Rückentitel. Jeder Band durch aphabetisches Inhaltsverzeichnis (Register) und aphabetisches Verzeichnis der Illustrationen erschlossen. "Die Illustrirte Zeitung erschien vom 1. Juli 1843 bis zum September 1944 im Verlag J. J. Weber in Leipzig. Verleger und Herausgeber war Johann Jacob Weber. Mitbegründer, technischer Leiter und Verbindungsmann zu den Holzschnittkünstlern in Leipzig und Berlin war von 1843 bis 1845 der Leipziger Buchhändler und Verleger Carl Berendt Lorck. Die Zeitschrift war das Flaggschiff des Unternehmens und kann zugleich als Urmutter aller späteren Bilderblätter angesehen werden. Zudem war diese neue Art Zeitschrift in Bezug auf die für solch kostspielige Experimente eher ungünstige Zeit ein wagemutiger, aber erfolgreicher Versuch, der sich in hervorragenden Verkaufserfolg entwickelte. Die Technik der Holzstich-Illustrationen für damalige Verhältnisse zur Perfektion zu entwickeln, war für den Verleger J. J. Weber im Jahr 1843 der eigentliche Anreiz zur Gründung einer illustrierten Zeitschrift. Im Laufe der folgenden Jahre gliederte er ein xylographisches Atelier an, das 1849 bis 1857 von Robert Kretschmer, 1857 bis 1860 von dem Maler Ernst Hartmann aus Berlin, 1860 bis 1870 von dem Maler Anton Muttenthaler aus München und 1870 bis 1901 von Fritz Waibler geleitet wurde. Ihr enormer Einsatz an Bildern und Bildreportagen, die durch den Einsatz eigener Bildkorrespondenten möglich wurde, macht die Illustrirte Zeitung durch ihre lange Laufzeit von einem Jahrhundert zu einer wichtigen Quelle an Materialien zur Geschichte und Kultur, sowie der Politik und des Alltagslebens. Sie bietet damit ein einmaliges Bildarchiv mit über 300.000 Illustrationen, die eindrucksvoll Berichte über das zeitgenössische politische, wissenschaftliche, kulturelle und literarische Leben dieser Zeit liefern. Mit der in der Illustrirten Zeitung erstmals eingeführten Eingliederung des Bildes in die Textseite erhöhte sich die Aussagekraft der bisher nur sprachlich vermittelten Inhalte oder Informationen." / "Johann Jacob Weber (* 3. April 1803 in Basel 16. März 1880 in Leipzig) war ein deutscher Buchhändler und Verleger sowie Begründer des Verlagshauses J. J. Weber in Leipzig. 1843 gründete er gemeinsam mit Carl Berendt Lorck die Illustrirte Zeitung, das erste illustrierte Wochenblatt Deutschlands, und revolutionierte damit die Wahrnehmung der Welt. Noch heute prägen die Bildfolgen zunächst der Stahlstiche und später der Holzstiche in seiner llustrirten Zeitung unsere Vorstellungen von der guten alten Zeit.

For the feel of fishing, the sense of it, I almost said the taste of it, I know of no other to place beside him. Put me ashore on the desert island and along with The Compleat Angler IÂ’ll beg for only one other book and thatÂ’s Days and Nights of Salmon Fishing in the TweedÂ… The big point to bear in mind about Scrope is that while it seems so effervescent and sparkly, itÂ’s not all superficialÂ… Scrope did at least as much for salmon fishing as Cotton before him had done for trout” (Gingrich, The Fishing In Print, 117, 130). Also with nine in-text wood engravings. Sage, 183. Westwood and Satchell, 191. Interior clean, coloring vivid. Joints expertly reinforced, full morocco-gilt binding sound and quite lovely.

        Narrative of Various Journeys in Balochistan, Afghanistan and the Panjab; [together with;] Narrative of a Journey to Kalat.

      London: Richard Bentley, 1842 & 1843 - Together 2 works in 4 volumes, octavo. Original matching purple combed cloth, title gilt to spines, panelling in blind to boards, pale cream surface-paper endpapers. All spines a little sunned, and crumpled head and tail with some minor splits and chips, overall a little rubbed, and bumped at the extremities, light browning to the text-blocks, and some foxing particularly to the plates; the pendant volume neatly rebacked with the original spine laid down, end papers renewed, folding map with two closed tears, no loss; a very good set. Single-tint lithographic frontispiece and one other similar plate to each volume of the first-named, together with numerous wood-cut illustrations to the text; large folding map to the pendant volume. First editions. Considered "to be the most enigmatic among the European explorers" of the north-west frontier, Masson (1800–53), was born John Lewis in London. In 1821 he enlisted as a private in the East India Company's infantry, later transferring to the Bengal European Artillery. He was present at the siege of Bharatpur in 1826 but deserted in early July 1827 in Agra and changed his name. He travelled to Afghanistan and embarked on over a decade of "pioneering travel and antiquarian investigation. During this period he collected well over 80,000 ancient coins and other objects which First provided a chronology of the dynasties of central Asia in the unknown centuries after the death of Alexander the Great. From 1834 Masson published news of his discoveries in the Journal of the Asiatic Society of Bengal. The following year he was recruited by the East India Company as news writer in Afghanistan, in return for a free pardon for his desertion and a small allowance" (ODNB). He also offered "the first hint of the historical importance of Harappa" (Robinson, The Indus, p. 28), one of the major sites of the ancient Indus Valley culture. In the years immediately before the first Afghan War, Masson was strongly critical of the Forward Policy, using his narrative to comment adversely on the conduct of Alexander Burnes and Sir William Macnaughten. He left Afghanistan in 1838 and during the ensuing British invasion remained in Sind, compiling the first work here. "In attempting to return to Afghanistan in 1840, he became accidentally embroiled in the Baluchistan revolt and was imprisoned by the British authorities without either charge or good reason" – events which he describes in the pendant volume. He returned to Britain in 1842, a typically embittered and disputatious ex-HEIC employee, failing "in his efforts to obtain financial compensation, to publish an illustrated magnum opus about his Afghan years, to return to Afghanistan, and to complete a half-finished novel". Although Masson lacked any formal training, "as an accurate observer of, and extensive traveller in, a virtually unknown land he was unrivalled", and the present narrative "has been judged to be a record which is unsurpassed for the width of its scope of inquiry into political, social, economic and scientific matters and the general accuracy of its conclusion" (Chopra). provenance: with the ownership initials of Lieut.-Col. John Archibald Ballard, dated 1857, to the front free endpaper of volume I. Ballard was educated at Addiscombe, and commissioned in the Bengal Engineers in 1850. He earned a considerable reputation for his "cool bravery in action" (Buckland) during his services attached to the Turkish forces in the Crimea, commanding a brigade in Omar Pasha's campaign in Mingrelia. "Ballard returned to India in 1856 [and] served as assistant quartermaster-general in the Persian campaign, and afterwards in the Indian mutiny with the Rajputana field force, taking part in the pursuit and rout of Tantia Topi's forces. His promotion was singularly rapid, advancing in 1858 from lieutenant to lieutenant-colonel. He was subsequently mint-master at Bombay. Having attained the rank of lieutenant-general, he retired in 1879" (ODNB). Chopra, Maha [Attributes: First Edition]

        Specimen juris inaugurale de conjugiis jure moslimico.

      Leiden, Samuel and Johannes Luchtmans and J.H. Gebhard, 1843. - 8vo. (6), 116, (2) pp. Contemporary green textured morocco with gold-tooled sides and fore-edge flap. Edges gilt. First and only edition of a Latin thesis on Islamic marriage law, by Emile Frederique Eliodore Testa (1821-96), the oral defense held at the University of Leiden. It treats the traditional rites of marriage and the conceptions of lawful and unlawful marriage, divorce, re-marriage and polygamy, also discussing marriage between two Muslims of whom one is enslaved, between enslaved Muslims, and between a Muslim and a foreigner. Born in Constantinople (Istanbul), Testa was of Italian extraction and served as Dutch consul in Tunis and Tripoli. He composed his thesis at the University of Leiden under the supervision of the historian Johannes Matthias Schrant (1783-1866). Possibly the present copy was owned by him or even by the author, as it is carefully bound, with fore-edge flap, in oriental style. - Binding slightly rubbed along the extremities and spine a bit discoloured. Slightly browned and foxed, otherwise in very good condition. F. Pouillon, Après l'orientalisme (2011), p. 80f. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Notices et extraits des manuscrits de la Bibliothèque du Roi [(vols. 1-3); Bibliothèque Nationale (vol. 4); Bibliothèque Nationale et autres bibliothèques (vols. 5-7), Bibliothèque Impériale et autres bibliothèques (vols. 8-9); Bibliothèque du Roi, et autres bibliothèques (vols. 10-14)], . Tome premier[-quatorzième].

      Paris, 1787-1843. - 4to. 14 volumes, some in 2 parts. With woodcuts on title-pages; occasional illustrations, including folding plates (at least 1 hand-coloured), to show facsimiles of manuscripts, maps, miniatures, etc.; some texts (for example Manchu in vol. 13) printed in red and black. Set in roman and italic type, with extensive use of the printing office's extensive collection of non-Latin types (Greek, Hebrew, Arabic, Samaritan, Syriac, Armenian, Sanscrit, Mongolian, Manchu (a variant of the Mongolian), Tibetan, Chinese and perhaps more). Uniform tree sheepskin (ca. 1835-ca. 1845), richly gold-tooled spines. First editions of the first 14 volumes of the officially authorized publications of the manuscripts of the French Bibliothèque du Roi and it successors, with commentaries and notes by leading French authorities, such as Antoine Isaac, Baron Silvestre de Sacy (1758-1838), the leading orientalist of his day, for the many Arabic manuscripts and several other non-Latin manuscripts. Louis-Mathieu Langlès (1763-1824), Armans-Pierre Caussin de Perceval (1795-1871) and others also made important contributions. Many volumes begin with the "oriental" manuscripts (those in non-Latin scripts) in a separate part. In one folding plate (showing an Arabic text) many vowel points and some letters have been rendered in outline and hand-coloured in red, apparently to show where the editor has filled out the original. These were important pioneering studies of Arabic and other non-European texts and also serve to display the materials of the printing office, which had one of the world's largest collections of matrices for non-Latin types. Many of the types were cut exclusively for the printing office and Napoleon confiscated others from the Propaganda Fide in Rome soon after he declared himself King of Italy in 1805. With the bookplates of the Bibliothèque de Mouchy and Bibliothèque du Château de Mouchy-Noailles. The former is probably from Charles-Arthur-Tristan Languedoc de Noailles (1771-1834), Duc de Mouchy, and/or his younger brother Antonin (1777-1846), who succeeded him as Duke. With a few water stains in the first leaves of vol. 1, but generally in very good condition. The bindings of several volumes are slightly tattered, but most are in good condition. A remarkable and important set of scholarly editions of manuscripts, especially strong in Arabic and other non-Latin manuscripts. Cat. de la bibliotheque du Chateau de Mouchy (1872), item 2461 (this copy).

        Christmas Books

      1843. DICKENS, Charles. The Christmas Books. London: Chapman and Hall, 1843-48. Together, five volumes. Small octavo, original rose and red cloths (Carol is expertly rebacked with original spine laid down), gilt-decorated covers and spines, all edges gilt. Housed in custom chemises and slipcase. $28,000.First editions of all five of Charles Dickens' Christmas Books—chief among them a first issue of his immortal Christmas Carol, the veritable ""Bible of Christmas""—illustrated with 63 engravings, four in color, by Leech, Maclise, Stanfield, Doyle and Landseer, all books in the original gilt-decorated cloth. A lovely set.A Christmas Carol ""may readily be called the Bible of Christmas… It was issued about ten days before Christmas, 1843, and 6000 copies were sold on the first day… the number of reprintings have been so many that all attempts at the figures have been futile. Altogether 24 editions were issued in the original format"" (Eckel, 110). ""It was a work written at the height of Dickens' great powers, which would add to his considerable fame, bring a new work to the English language, increase the festivities at Christmastime, and contain his most eloquent protest at the condition of the poor"" (John Mortimer). ""Suddenly conceived and written within a few weeks, [A Christmas Carol] was the first of Dickens' Christmas books (a new literary genre thus created incidentally)… it was an extraordinary achievement—the one great Christmas myth of modern literature."" The publication history of A Christmas Carol is bibliographically complex. ""Dickens decided to publish the book himself… He wanted the Carol to be a beautiful gift book and took pride in its development. He stipulated the following requirements: a fancy binding, blind-stamped, with gilding on the spine and front cover; all edges gilded; four full-page hand-colored etchings; half title and title pages printed in colors of bright red and green; and hand-colored green endpapers to match the green title page… However, in examining printed copies prior to publication, Dickens was disappointed with the appearance of the green titles, which turned drab, and the hand-colored green endpapers, which dusted off and smudged, and had the title page changed to red and blue, the half title to blue, the date on the title page changed from 1844 to 1843, and the endpapers changed to yellow, which did not require hand work. Dickens' changes were completed by December 17… Since Dickens' instructions to discontinue the unsatisfactory titles and endpapers were received at the press before publication, at a time when there were on hand different quantities of endpapers, title pages, and sheets of printed text already produced, many copies are found with a mixture of features"" (Gimbel A79). A Christmas Carol is from the first issue, with uncorrected text (""Stave I"" as the first chapter heading), the red-and-blue title page dated 1843, the half title printed in blue, and light green endpapers. (First-issue copies appear with either yellow or green endpapers, no priority established.) Binding matches Todd's first impression, first issue, with the smallest interval between blindstamped border and gilt wreath equal to 14-15 mm, and with the ""D"" in ""Dickens"" unbroken (Smith II:4). First edition of The Chimes, with the first state of the engraved title page (publisher's imprint is engraved within the title vignette); first edition of The Cricket on the Hearth, with second state of advertising leaf at rear (headed ""New Edition of Oliver Twist""); first edition of The Battle of Life, with vignette title page in the fourth state (subtitled ""A Love Story"" on a scroll carried by an angel and without publisher's imprint); first edition of The Haunted Man and The Ghost's Bargain. All advertisements present, as issued.Dickens followed A Christmas Carol's tremendous success with four more Christmas books. In each book, he deftly develops the themes of the first, ideals that have consequently become inseparable from the holiday itself: love and redemption, charity and mercy. First edition, first issue of The Chimes, with publisher's imprint above the bottom of the cloud and part of the engraved title vignette; first edition of The Cricket on the Hearth, with first state of advertising leaf at rear; first edition of The Battle of Life with vignette title page in scarce second state, with the subtitle ""A Love Story"" on a scroll not carried by an angel and publisher's imprint present; first edition of The Haunted Man.

        墨合戦圖 Painting of Ink War

      (Late Edo?). Two charming humorous coloured ink and watercolour paintings depicting an "ink war". Two paintings on two joined sheets, 38.5 x 164cm. Handscroll extended including decorative silk borders and wooden rollers 38.5 x 210cm. Light damp stain approximately 4 x 4.5cm in three places along upper edge, occasional light soiling but otherwise good. This delightful handscroll featuring paintings of two groups of Japanese aristocrats very actively fighting against each other reflects a Japanese comic tradition of painting that goes back over a thousand years. The images show the aristocrats splashing ink at each other with long-handled brushes. One even uses a rather ingenious ink pump to propel the ink some distance directly into the face of his "enemy"! Full of energy and humour this is a delightful piece. As mentioned above the "ink wars" paintings have a long history in Japan. The most notable example is the Chōjū jinbutsu giga 鳥獣人物戯画 [Caricatures of Frolic Birds, Animals, and humans] scroll painted in the 12th century and now in the collection of the Kōzan-ji Temple. It is said that during the 8th century in the Nara period the emperor ordered his aristocrats to play with ink. The emperor called this event an "ink fight" and he had a Tosa School artist paint the scene. In 1843 Utagawa Kuniyoshi inspired by the Tosa School artist again used this motif as did Kawanabe Kyōsai 河鍋暁齋 a little later. This scroll has no signature or date and as the style is unique it cannot be attributed to any school however it appears that this delightful "ink war" was probably painted in the Late Edo period. .
