        Eigenhändiger Brief mit Autograph kurz vor dem Verkauf von Muskau und Rückzug nach Branitz. Berlin im August 1844

      Berlin den 10 August 1844 - eigenhändig in brauner Tinte geschriebener und signierter Brief ohne Adresse und ohne Anrede auf gefaltetem privaten Briefpapier mit blindgeprägtem, in Gold und Rot gedrucktem Wappen und Monogramm "PM", Octavo (21 x 13 cm), Faltspuren, sonst tadellos erhalten, sehr selten Bemerkenswerter und historisch interessanter Brief des durch seinen extravaganten Lebensstil und seine kostspieligen landschaftsarchitektonischen Projekte in große Finanznot geratenen Fürsten, möglicherweise bereits bei der Anbahnung seines Verkaufs der Standesherrschaft Muskau. "Berlin den 10. August / 1844. / Ihr Herr Vater schreibt / mir daß er Sie mit / der Antwort auf mei- / nen Brief beauftragt / habe. Da ich nun hier (in Berlin) / bin und die Sache pres- / siert, so bitte ich Sie / sobald als möglich her / zukommen um unser / Geschäft in Ordnung zu bringen. / Euer Wohlgeboren / ergebener / H. Pückler Muskau". Wenige Monate später, Anfang 1845, verkaufte Fürst Pückler-Muskau seine Standesherrschaft Muskau mit allen Dörfern, Ländereien und Parkanlagen für 1,700,000 Taler an die Grafen August von Nostitz und Edmund von Hatzfeld-Weißweiler. Der König von Preußen und weite Teile des Hochadels waren über diesen Schritt wenig begeistert und seine Frau Lucie trauerte über den Verlust Muskaus, in das beide gemeinsam so viel Zeit und Geld investiert hatten. Für den Fürsten war der Verkauf angesichts des drohenden finanziellen Ruins eine große Erleichterung, machte ihn als Sechzigjährigen erstmals in seinem Leben schuldenfrei und setzte ihn darüber hinaus in die Lage, sein Erbschloß Branitz bei Cottbus zu erweitern, zu restaurieren und mit neuen grandiosen Parkanlagen zu verschönern. Dorthin zog er sich mit seiner Frau bis zu seinem Lebensende zurück. 980 gr. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Eva mit ihrem Sohne Abel.

      1844 1844 - Holzschnitt, 1844, von Engelhardt Graeff (1807-1878), auf chamoisfarbenem Velin. 22,6:20 cm. - Verso an den Ecken mit alten Leimspuren, kleine Fehlstelle in der linken oberen Ecke außerhalb der Darstellung. Literatur: Alphons M. von Steinle, Edward von Steinle. Des Meisters Gesamtwerk in Abbildungen. Kempten/München 1910, vg. Abb. 11, Verzeichnis der abgebildeten Werke, S. 2. Schon 1823 trat Steinle in die Wiener Akademie ein, seit 1826 wurde er von L. Kupelwieser (1796 - 1862) unterrichtet. Zwischen 1828 und 1833 hielt er sich zweimal in Rom auf und fand dort Anschluß an den Kreis der Nazarener (Fr. Overbeck,1789 - 1869; Ph. Veit, 1793 - 1877; J. von Führich, 1800 - 1876). 1829 arbeitete er zusammen mit Overbeck an der Porziuncula bei Assisi. 1833 wieder in Wien, 1837 folgte eine Reise nach Frankfurt am Main und an den Rhein. 1839 übersiedelte er nach Frankfurt am Main und fand Anschluß an den Nazarener-Kreis um Veit. 1850 wurde er Professor für Historienmalerei am Städelschen Kunstinstitut. Steinle ist einer der führenden Vertreter der katholischen Kirchenkunst nach der Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts; doch hat er sich auch mit anderen Stoffen befaßt, so z.B. mit Märchen und Dichtungen.

        Die Dresdener Köchin oder die feine und allgemeine bürgerliche Koch=, Brat= und Backkunst der neusten Zeit, nebst Anweisung zum Einmachen der Früchte, zu warmen und kalten Getränken, Speisezetteln und Anordnung der Tafeln etc. Auf 45jährige Erfahrung und practische Uebung gegründet.

      Dresden Selbstverlag 1844 - 8°. XXXII S., 343 S. HLdr. berieben u. bestoßen. Erstausgabe.- Weiss 260 - Eine nachhaltige Bestätigung für die Bedeutung der damaligen sächsischen Kochkunst leistete Johann Friedrich Baumann mit seinem zweibändigen und mit französischen Untertiteln versehenem Werk „Der Dresdner Koch" oder „ Die vereinigte deutsche, französische und englische Koch- und Backkunst", Dresden 1830. Wahrlich kein Regionalkochbuch, aber ein höfisches Speiseregister vom Feinsten. J. F. Baumann war Küchenchef der Familie von Bünau auf Schloss Dahlen bei Riesa. Die Bünaus sind die einzigen Machtrivalen der Wettiner im späten Mittelalter gewesen. „Der Dresdner Koch" spiegelt zum Erscheinungszeitpunkt eindrucksvoll die Leistungsfähigkeit der gesamten sächsischen Adelsküche wieder. Ein solch fachlich fundiertes Werk über die damalige Kochkunst suchte generell bis heute deutschlandweit seinesgleichen. 1844 schiebt Baumann das tatsächlich regionalere Kochkunstwerk: „Die Dresdner Köchin „ nach. Wahrscheinlich auch um seine territoriale Verbundenheit zu demonstrieren. Mit seinem Sohn Friedrich Tuiskon Baumann, der am 1. März 1850 als Hofbeikoch im Schloss am Taschenberg seinen ersten Arbeitstag hatte, zwei Jahre später Hofkoch wurde, 1863 zum königlich sächsischer Hofküchenmeister avancierte, 1882 in den Ruhestand trat und 1889 viel zu früh verschied, gewann die sächsische Hofküche absolut internationalen Rang.- Stark braunfleckig und mit Gebrauchsspuren.

        Annals of the Poor

      London: Thomas Nelson & Sons Ltd, 1844. (vi); 239 pages. Engraved frontispiece, additional engraved title. Inscription in the upper margin of the printed title. Contemporary olive green gilt morocco lightly rubbed. WITH AN EROTIC FORE EDGE PAINTING depicting Leda and the Swan. Leda and the Swan is a motif from Greek mythology, in which Zeus came to Leda in the form of a swan. According to later Greek mythology, Leda bore Helen and Polydeuces, children of Zeus while at the same time bearing Castor and Clytemnestra, children of her husband Tyndareus, the King of Sparta. As the story goes, Zeus took the form of a swan and raped or seduced Leda on the same night she slept with her husband, King Tyndareus. In some versions, she laid two eggs from which the children hatched. In other versions, Helen is a daughter of Nemesis, the goddess who personified the disaster that awaited those suffering from the vice of Hubris (pride). When this fore edge painting was executed in the nineteenth century it would have been seen more acceptable to depict a woman in the act of copulation with a swan than with a man.. Reprint. Very Good. Small 8vo. Book.

        Principal Court of the Palace at Palenque [upper subject]; Interior of Casa No. III., at Palenque [lower subject]

      London: F. Catherwood, 1844. Hand coloured tinted lithograph, after Catherwood, trimmed to the image and mounted on card as issued, ink ruled border and ink manuscript plate number in the lower right corner. Top image: 7 1/8 x 10 5/8 inches; bottom image: 7 1/4 x 10 5/8 inches; mounted on a card: 21 1/8 x 17 1/4 inches. A fine image from the extraordinarily rare hand-coloured issue of this highly important work: "In the whole range of literature on the Maya there has never appeared a more magnificent work" (Von Hagen). Until the publication of the work of Alfred Maudsley at the turn of the century, Catherwood's Views was the greatest record of Mayan iconography and a primary visual record of the rediscovery of Mayan civilization. The Views was produced in London, although issued with both London and New York title pages. Catherwood recruited some of the most distinguished lithographers in London to translate his originals onto stone: Andrew Picken, Henry Warren, William Parrott, John C. Bourne, Thomas Shotter Boys, and George Belton Moore.Frederick Catherwood was a British architect and artist with a strong interest in archaeology. These combined talents led him to accompany the American traveller and explorer, John Lloyd Stephens, on two trips to the Mayan region of southern Mexico in 1839 and 1841. These explorations resulted in Stephens' two famous works, Incidents of Travel in Central America, Chiapas, and Yucatan and Incidents of Travel in Yucatan . These immensely popular works, foundation stones in Mayan studies, were both illustrated by Catherwood and inspired him to undertake the larger portfolio. The work of Stephens and Catherwood received great praise. Of Catherwood, Huxley writes: "Catherwood belongs to a species, the artist-archaeologist, which is all but extinct. Piranesi was the most celebrated specimen and Catherwood his not unworthy successor."Three hundred copies of the work were produced. Most copies are the standard issue, containing tinted lithographed plates. A much more limited number were issued in the present deluxe format: with the plates expertly hand-coloured, cut to the edge of the image and mounted on card stock in imitation of the original watercolours. Very few such deluxe copies have appeared on the market in the last quarter century, with the most recent portfolio selling for $120,000 (Christie's New York, 5 December 2006).Palenque was a large Maya city state in present-day Chiapas, Mexico. The city, which flourished during the 7th century, was inhabited from about 220 BC to 799 AD, over a thousand years. Groce & Wallace, p.115; Hill [2004] 263; Palau 50290; Sabin 11520; Tooley (1954) 133; Von Hagen, Search for the Maya , pp. 320-24. Not in Abbey.

These explorations resulted in Stephens' two famous works, Incidents of Travel in Central America, Chiapas, and Yucatan and Incidents of Travel in Yucatan . These immensely popular works, foundation stones in Mayan studies, were both illustrated by Catherwood and inspired him to undertake the larger portfolio. The work of Stephens and Catherwood received great praise. Of Catherwood, Huxley writes: "Catherwood belongs to a species, the artist-archaeologist, which is all but extinct. Piranesi was the most celebrated specimen and Catherwood his not unworthy successor." Three hundred copies of the work were produced. Most copies are the standard issue, containing tinted lithographed plates. A much more limited number were issued in the present deluxe format: with the plates expertly hand-coloured, cut to the edge of the image and mounted on card stock in imitation of the original watercolours. Very few such deluxe copies have appeared on the market in the last quarter century, with the most recent portfolio selling for $120,000 (Christie's New York, 5 December 2006). This intriguing image shows the natives hard at work clearing the trees that had covered the ancient Mayan temple and Frederick Catherwood measuring the temple with an assistant. The man to the left of the temple with his back to the viewer is probably John Lloyd Stephens. Tulum is on the seacoast, near Cancún. Groce & Wallace, p.115; Hill [2004] 263; Palau 50290; Sabin 11520; Tooley (1954) 133; Von Hagen, Search for the Maya , pp. 320-24. Not in Abbey.

Bound in later three-quarter olive morocco, t.e.g., by Zaehnsdorf, spine faded to brown, else near fine. Bookplate of Charles Hebbert.

The series was taken up again 1842, with poems ante-dated to fill the missing years. Joseph Crawhall republished the Garlands, further extending the series to 1864. [With:] MITCHELL, William Andrew.

        The Dispatches and Letters of Vice Admiral Lord Viscount Nelson

      London, Henry Colburn, , 1844?-46. 7 volumes octavo. Original blue-green combed cloth, title gilt to spines with compartments in blind, panels in blind to the boards with arabesque corner-pieces enclosing a large central tool of an Admiralty coronet within a roundel containing Nelson's Trafalgar signal, in gilt to the upper boards and in blind to the lower, pale yellow surface-paper endpapers. Portrait frontispiece to Volume I, 4 facsimile letters and 3 plans, 2 of them folding, ads tipped in at the front endpapers of volume I. Lightly rubbed, the spines a little sunned, the slightest signs that this was a subscription library set, small pieces of the issue-slip remain to the front pastedowns of three volumes, and the front free endpapers of all have traces of "offset" blotting from subscribers filling in the slip, light browning, some light marginal foxing, otherwise an unusually nicely preserved set in the cloth. First edition. The essential starting point for any attempt to understand either the mercurial personality or instinctive tactical genius of Nelson, never superseded. "This is the standard work of reference for Nelson's correspondence and is the principal source from which his biographers have drawn (and still do draw) their material" (Cowie). An excellent set, so handsome in the cloth.

        A New and Accurate Map Illustrative of the Overland Routes and the Steam Navigation Lines Between India and Great Britain.

      Calcutta: Oriental Lith. Press P S D'Rozario & Co 1844 - Map dimensions 50 x 74 cm, overall 53.5 x 77.5 cm. Folding map of the lines of communication between Britain and India, delicate full wash handcolouring, dissected into 16 sections and mounted on linen, the routes printed on the map are further embellished with a number of contemporary manuscript annotations and a handwritten note which appears to associate them with two particular vessels though the names are illegible, pink paper lozenges pasted onto the folded end sections, a gift inscription from one R. Taylor to a W.C. Braddon dated the same year as publication on one side, a longer inscription on the other side in the same hand though this badly smudged and largely unreadable. Slight creasing and fraying to the section edges at just a few edges, an attractive map. Though maps of the overland and sea routes between Britain and the subcontinent are not rare, nearly all will have been published in Europe. The slightly naive appearance of the print and the delicate hand colouring certainly underline the map's origins. Not much appears to have been recorded of Charles Joseph, described as the compiler of the map to the bottom left corner with the name H.M. Smith given at the bottom right as the draughtsman, and no copies of this map show up on Copac or Worldcat. However, the latter throws up copies of another two scarce maps mentioning Joseph as the creator or co-creator. The first is titled "Topographical Survey Of The River Hoogly From Bandel to Garden Reach." published at the Asiatic Lith. Press in Calcutta in 1844, with Joseph listed as one of four mapmakers or surveyors, and quite likely relates to the works of the Survey of India. The second is titled "Map of the Grand Trunk Road from the Karamnassa to the Sutledge." and was published in Allahabad in 1851. The printer, Peter Stone D'Rozario, was the sometime publisher of the Calcutta Journal, though his licence to do so was revoked by the Governor-General for publishing articles on contentious subjects that the authorities had ordered to be not for public discussion.

      Published by Vizetely Brothers & Co, London 1844 - Tinted lithograph. This beautiful and rare lithograph is one of the first and primary visual records of the rediscovery of Mayan civilization.

This, the first edition in book form, appeared on July 16, 1844 at 21s. and was the last of Dickens's picaresque novels. Dickens thought it to be his best work - but his readers disagreed. In fact, Martin Chuzzlewit was the first of his novels to lose readers during serialization and the publisher Chapman and Hall suggested that Dickens's fees should be reduced. This never happened but it caused a rift that was not bridged until Chapman and Hall published A Tale of Two Cities in 1859. Dombey and Son (1848), David Copperfield (1850), Bleak House (1853), Hard Times (1854) and Little Dorrit (1857) were all published by Bradbury and Evans.
