In 1803 Kennion issued a prospectus for a work titled "Elements of Landscape and Picturesque Beauty", which was to appear in four volumes. However, he died in 1809, with only the present Essay on Trees in Landscape completed, which was edited and published by his son Charles in 1815. In 1844, letterpress (with 1815 watermarks) and the original copperplates were purchased by Henry Bohn, along with five copperplates for images by Kennion not included in the original work (four large double-page as well as a second plate XIX), as well as the copperplates for etchings by Scottish landscape artist Hugh William Williams.

        Emigration and Colonization; Embodying the Results of a Mission To Great Britain and Ireland, During the Years 1839, 1840, 1841 and 1842; Including A Correspondence With Many Distinguished Noblemen and Gentlemen, Several of the Governors of Canada; Descriptive Accounts of Various Parts of the British American Provinces; With Observations, Statistical, Political, Etc.

      John Mortimer, London 1844 - Inscribed: "To Brother Wyld from the Author Brother Rolph".Very Good. 1st. Hard Cover. 8vo. In original cloth neatly rebacked and with most of original back-strip laid down. Lacks half-title. Thomas Rolph emigrated to Upper Canada in the summer of 1833 and settled in Ancaster where he began to practise as a surgeon in August. He also bought and sold small amounts of land in Brooke and Ancaster townships between 1834 and 1837. Rolph became known as a proponent of assisted emigration from Britain to the Canadas along the lines being advocated by Sir Robert John Wilmot-Horton and Edward Gibbon Wakefield.In October 1840 a central coordinating body, the Canadian Emigration Association, was formed in Toronto to collect information on lands and jobs and send it to British emigration societies or make it available to arriving immigrants. The association delegated Rolph as its representative in the British Isles. He was appointed the emigration agent for Upper Canada and the province of Canada from 1839 to 1843.Rolph left Canada at the end of 1843 and probably never returned. In 1844 he published his best-known work, Emigration and colonization; embodying the results of a mission to Great Britain and Ireland, during the years 1839, 1840, 1841, and 1842. The book contains detailed descriptions of his travels in the British Isles and in Upper Canada, reports of speeches (by himself and by others), and accounts of the societies he formed or helped to form.

        Whitefriars; Or, The Days Of Charles the second

      An historical romance. In three volumes. [Epigraph and volume number] London: Henry Colburn, publisher, Great Marlborough-street, 1844. 3 Vols, post 8vo; half-titles not called for; pp.[iv]+323+[i (blank)]; [ii]+339+[i (blank)]; [ii]+334; Victorian quarter vellum, black lettering-pieces, bronze pebble-grain cloth sides; t.e.g., others uncut. Vellum darkened and foxed, and one lettering-piece lacking; poor quality paper showing some very light embrowning, and one blank upper margin with short tear; a very few scattered small marks or fox-spots; a very nice copy nonetheless. Emma Robinson?'s first book, and a very scarce title indeed in the first printing, as here. Allowing for a label leaf, the book as here presented makes an exact number of sheets. Sadleir had to be content with a third printing (and a slightly differing collation), whilst Wolff did not find a copy at all; COPAC records copies only at the British Library, Oxford, the National Library of Scotland, and Glasgow. The title-page to volume one in this copy has the ?'m?' of ?'form?' lacking in the first line of the epigraph. It is present in the other volumes. All books listed by Robert Temple are first editions unless otherwise stated.

        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. 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. 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. 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. Cowie 144 [Attributes: First Edition]

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.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      O. O., 17. Juli o. J.. 1 S. Kl.-8vo.. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "Noch immer sehr leidend bin ich mit meiner Familie hier angekommen und werde heute ein Logis in Dr. Schreber's Haus vor dem Petersthor beziehen, wo ich mich 1 Monat lang einer Kur unterziehen will. Sie würden mich sehr erfreuen, wenn Sie mir dort Ihren Besuch gönnten, da ich selbst gar sehr am Gehen behindert bin [...]". - Mosen, ein Freund von Ludwig Tieck, Ernst Theodor Echtermeyer, Arnold Ruge und Gottfried Semper, wurde 1844 Dramaturg am Großherzoglichen Hoftheater in Oldenburg; 1846 begann er unter stetig anwachsenden Lähmungserscheinungen zu leiden, die schlußends zu Unbeweglichkeit und zum Verlust der Sprache führten. Sein bekanntestes Gedicht ist der Text des "Andreas Hofer-Liedes" ("Zu Mantua in Banden"), das heute Landeshymne des österreichischen Bundeslandes Tirol ist. - Daniel Gottlob Moritz Schreber (1808-1861) war Universitätsprofessor und seit 1844 Leiter der Leipziger orthopädischen Heilanstalt. In seinen Schriften beschäftigte er sich vor allem mit der Gesundheit der Kinder und den sozialen Folgen des Stadtlebens am Beginn der Industrialisierung; Schreber war Namensgeber der im 19. Jahrhundert als Armen- und Specialgärten bekannten, heute Schrebergärten benannten Kleingärten, die jedoch ihren bis heute gültigen Namen erst nach seinem Tod erhielten.

        Simcoe's Military Journal. A History of the Operations of a Partisan Corps, Called The Queen's Rangers...During the War of the American Revolution

      New York: Bartlett & Welford, 1844. 1st. Hard Cover. Very Good. 8vo. 22.5cm. Rebound in quarter speckled dark blue calf, raised black ruled bands, gilt decorations in the panels, crimson crushed morocco label, blue marbled boards.Contemporary internal library stamps (no bleed through) otherwise a fine copy. illustrated with 10 folding maps.  A very nice copy of the first American edition. The first published edition of one of the legendary Revolutionary War books. In 1775, Simcoe arrived in America as a young British Army officer. In the fall of 1777 he was promoted to the rank of major and given command of the Queen's Rangers, an American Tory cavalry regiment. This book describes the actions in which the regiment was involved, first around Philadelphia in 1777 and 1778, until the withdrawal of Howe to New York; then around New York in Long Island, Westchester County and New Jersey until the end of 1780. On Dec. 11, 1780, the regiment embarked for Virginia as part of Benedict Arnold's campaign there, serving in all of the dramatic actions in Virginia throughout 1781, and finally ending up trapped at Yorktown with Cornwallis. Simcoe then returned to England where he wrote this book, privately printing it in an elaborate fashion, with ten folding maps illustrating different actions. That edition remains among the rarest examples of Revolutionary Americana (the last two copies sold brought more than $20,000). This scarce first published edition includes a memoir of Simcoe. Simcoe later went on to a distinguished parliamentary and military career, and is best known as the first governor of Upper Canada Lande 749. TPL 562.

In this paper Talbot (1800-1877, photographer, inventor) announced his invention of the photographic process, the first permanent negative process on paper, that he called Calotype and later - first in print in the title of this paper - Talbotype.
