        Chinese Street in Macao.

      Macau: probably mid-1844. Watercolour, 370 x 274 mm; ink caption at centre below; original cropping marks and marginal annotations relating to subsequent publication; now in acid-free mount to original framing dimensions. An important original watercolour of Macau. This once formed part of a series of watercolours of the European enclaves on the South China coast in the mid-1840s. The series was described in full in the Hordern House catalogue Edward Ashworth, Artist & Architect (available online at www.hordern.com). The suite of views of Hong Kong from that series was acquired by the Hong Kong Museum of Art.Chinese Street in MacaoThis recently-discovered drawing appears very familiar, for the reason that it was one of the images to have been turned into a lithograph (Plate 5) for Ashworth's essay 'Chinese Architecture', first published in 1851 by the Architectural Publication Society. This explains the cropping marks and side instructions to the engraver and printer around its margins.The watercolour depicts a street of Chinese shops. Concerning the published version Ashworth writes rather brusquely in his essay of: 'A street in Macao, the Chinese part of the town. These shops are quite second rate. The foolish custom of constructing segment roofs to verandahs is here displayed to disadvantage'. Presumably he is referring to the roofs to the left, drainage - if left unprotected by an additional roof - being an obvious problem with their inward returns. If we are to believe the written evidence, it seems that Ashworth drew this scene more as a visual, moral lesson in bad design rather than for any painterly or romantic compulsion, though some ethnographic fascination with such an intimate Chinese setting must certainly have played a part.On this original drawing, at the lower right, Ashworth has scribbled in pencil: 'The effect of this is to be copie[d] with the colour of the other draw[ing]'. This could be a note to his lithographers Messrs. Day and Son, a reference to another street scene by Ashworth that would become Plate 4: 'Street Scene, Canton, near the Foreign Factories', since both exhibit an identical viewing angle and perspective. In addition, the eaves of the buildings along the Canton street display similar 'segment roofs' of the pattern Ashworth so despised in Macau.Edward AshworthEdward Ashworth was born near Exeter, Devon in 1814, and trained as an articled apprentice to Robert Cornish, architect to Exeter Cathedral. He then moved to London to work under another Exeter-born man, Charles Fowler, architect to the Duke of Bedford and a founder-member of the Institute of British Architects. Unhappy with the quality of his commissions, Ashworth decided to immigrate to New Zealand. Aged 28, he left England in May 1842 aboard the ship Tuscan, bound for Auckland. The trip included a brief stay in Melbourne, landing at Port Phillip in September 1842. Ashworth continued on to Auckland, arriving a month later in October. After failing to find work as an architect he accepted a position as tutor to the children of the first New Zealand Governor, William Hobson, recently deceased. Other tutoring posts soon came his way. During his two-year stay, Ashworth made numerous watercolours of Auckland and its street life including an expedition into the Waikato, now treasured views of the very first stages of colonial occupation. This was to become a habit, drawing and painting the landscapes and streetscapes of each place he visited. In 1843 he gave a lecture to the local Mechanics Institute on Greek architecture in which his drawings were widely admired for their 'exquisite' quality. By early 1844 he had decided to make his way back to England via a slow sojourn in China - presumably he had heard of the sudden flurry of building construction then underway in Hong Kong. Ashworth left Auckland in February 1844 arriving for the second time in Australia that same month, this time in Sydney, New South Wales. He spent three months in that city, again painting and drawing, before heading across to Hong Kong aboard the American ship Navigator by way of Batavia (Jakarta) and Macau. The timing was impeccable. The first 'official' land auction of Hong Kong under Crown sovereignty had taken place just a few months earlier, in January 1844, and a building boom ensued. Now, finally, he could find actual architectural commissions and build.Ashworth returned to England in 1846 and set up practice in Exeter. His first job in the county was as clerk of works for Up Ottery Manor, a new, suitably expansive neo-Tudor pile, which he completed for the 2nd Viscount Sidmouth in 1847. Here, in bucolic Devon, he remained until his death in 1896, devoting much of his work to the restoration of parish churches.Ashworth's newly-discovered watercolours of Macau add significantly to the corpus of material explored by previous European painters such as the Daniells, William Alexander, Auguste Borget and George Chinnery, although with a greater urbanity and intimacy to the settings, partly as a result of his close interest in detail, particularly architectural.ProvenanceEdward Ashworth's family, by descent, in a group of drawings.AcknowledgementsWe are grateful to Chris Cowell who prepared a skilful analysis of the Ashworth drawings; for information summarised here we also thank Marian Minson and the staff of the Alexander Turnbull Library, Wellington, New Zealand; Cesar Guillen Nuñez, Historian of Art at the Macau Ricci Institute, Macau; Dr. Stuart Braga, Sydney; Sarah Cunich, Hong Kong; the staff of the Hong Kong Museum of Art, the State Library of New South Wales, Sydney, and the National Library of Australia, Canberra.Bibliography: AshworthAshworth, E.

        To ti kong Small Temple nr. Macao

      Macau: probably mid-1844. Watercolour, 215 x 290 mm; ink caption at lower right; in mount. An important original watercolour by the English artist and architect Edward Ashworth who travelled through Macau and Hong Kong in the 1840s. The T'ou T'ei Temple in Patane, Macau, situated near the Luís de Camões Garden, is among the oldest and most famous of such temples. "To ti kong Small Temple nr. Macao"T'ou T'ei (Tu Di Gong / To ti kong), the 'God of Earth', held sway over all the land. There are many temples dedicated to T'ou T'ei in Macau, a god commonly worshipped for centuries on the peninsula and neighbouring islands. Among the oldest and most famous is the T'ou T'ei Temple in Patane (Pou Tai Un), of which Guillén-Nuñez has identified this Ashworth watercolour to be a rare, early view. The Patane shrine, always significant, may take on more importance given the recent proposal by Macao officials to declare the earth god Tou Tei a UNESCO World Heritage. Sitting at the junction between the Rua da Palmeira and the Rua do Patane, the temple rises up on a granite footing by the base of the Luís de Camões Garden. Wooded and hilly, this adjacent garden was formerly part of the residence of the China director of the English East India Company, and therefore known as Casa Garden. The British vacated the house and grounds in 1835, presumably due to the loss of the tea monopoly during the course of their renewal of charter in 1833. The new owner, a Portuguese, had a grotto built in the grounds in which he placed the bust of Portugal's national poet Luís de Camões, since Macau tradition argues that the poet wrote part of his epic poem The Lusiads in the vicinity of the present garden sometime in 1557. Because of the area's legacy Ashworth, along with other Europeans, would have had privileged access to the garden, a popular destination for this relatively small community.The angle of this intimate painting is an interesting one for Ashworth. Taken from an unusual viewpoint, this is his most adventurous attempt at a picturesque composition, of a playful interplay between foreground and background to be found within the catalogue. There is no dominant, central vanishing point, rather an askew view with the temple's entrance partially concealed and again further concealed by overhanging foliage. Ashworth painstakingly reproduced the various woven decoration ornamenting the transverse beams. While overall, the rectilinear structure of the temple is amplified and offset by the streaming and fanning fronds of bamboo which appear to press and squeeze against it upon either side. The only glimpse we have of the expansive garden landscape beyond appears within the frame of one of the large roundels or 'moon gates' of the temple's projecting walls.Edward AshworthEdward Ashworth was born near Exeter, Devon in 1814, and trained as an articled apprentice to Robert Cornish, architect to Exeter Cathedral. He then moved to London to work under another Exeter-born man, Charles Fowler, architect to the Duke of Bedford and a founder-member of the Institute of British Architects.

      London: J. Davis, 1844. White metal medal, 41 mm., pierced at top with suspension loop. John Williams was a missionary working in the Pacific from 1817 until his death in 1839, killed by islanders in the New Hebrides.

        The Anatomy and Philosophy of Expression as connected with the Fine Arts.

      London: John Murray,, 1844. Octavo (245 × 163 mm). Dark green morocco presentation binding, title gilt to the spine, compartments and boards with French fillet panels gilt, single fillet edge-roll, all edges gilt, wide turn-ins, with gilt panels of a paired thick and thin fillets, green moiré silk endsheets. 4 engraved plates and numerous illustrations to the text. Just a little rubbed at the extremities, light browning, occasional spotting and off-setting in places from the illustrations, but overall very good. Third Edition, enlarged, of a work first published as Anatomy of Expression in 1806, and containing his last revisions; "These essays formed the earliest and latest occupation of the lamented author's leisure hours" (Preface). This copy was bound for presentation by Bell's wife Marion to her goddaughter Anna Marion Isaac, in 1845, two years after the death of her husband, and is inscribed by her on the first binder's blank. She has also annotated the sketch of a lyre-playing satyr at p.227, "His last unfinished sketch, MB"; and transcribed the inscription from Bell's memorial tablet in the churchyard at Hallow, which was written by his good friend Lord Jeffrey, jurist, author and editor of the Edinburgh Review. Tipped onto the front pastedown is a letter from the recipient's son to a Dr. Backley, sending the book as a gift in gratitude for his professional services with the reservation that "I expect the book is out of date - as well as out of print - but I thought that you might like it ?". Extending and rationalising Lavaterian physiognomics, Bell, as talented an artist as he was a physiologist, here attempts "to explain the anatomical basis for the artistic representation of emotion." This work was to have considerable influence on Darwin in the writing of his Expression of Emotion; "He found Bell's arguments absorbing, and was deeply impressed by the author's comparative analysis of human and animal musculature and his excursions into the theory of art, anthropology, philosophy, and psychology. In particular, he was struck by the claim that insanity could be equated with raw animality" (Browne "Darwin and the face of Madness" in Bynum, Porter and Shepherd The Anatomy of Madness, p.152). Bell researched and wrote authoritatively on brain function and the nervous system, also famously published his Dissertation on Gun-Shot Wounds, having studied the problems whilst treating the casualties of Corunna at Haslar Hospital, and visiting the battlefield of Waterloo to offer his expertise.

        Views of Ancient Monuments in Central America, Chiapas and Yucatan.

      London: published by F. Catherwood,, 1844. Folio. Original green quarter morocco, green moiré cloth sides, spine and front cover lettered in gilt, yellow endpapers. Custom green morocco backed folding case. Chromolithographed title by Owen Jones, full-page map, and 25 tinted lithograph plates after drawings by Catherwood, the plates with plain paper guards. Text block expertly resewn and recased. Fore edge of front board a little darkened, inner hinges reinforced with green cloth, occasional dustsoiling at margins not affecting plate area, a very good copy, without foxing. First edition, limited to 300 copies. Stephens met Catherwood in 1836 and the two had a mutual interest in the ancient ruins of the near east. They decided to travel to Central America after reading an account of the ruins of Copan. Their travels resulted in three titles written by Stephens and illustrated by Catherwood, but this is the only volume published as a folio. Although many of the views and subjects appeared in his work with John L. Stephens, the large-scale lithographs here reveal detail and beauty lost in the smaller format. Many of Catherwood's original drawings and paintings were destroyed when a building in which he was exhibiting his work caught fire. "In the whole range of literature on the Maya there has never appeared a more magnificent work than Views of Ancient Monuments" (V. W. von Hagen, Frederick Catherwood Archt. [New York: 1950]).

        A treatise on the forces which produce the organization of plants : with an appendix containing several memoirs on capillary attraction, electricity, and the chemical action of light

      New York : Harper & Bros, 1844-01-01. Hardcover. Very Good. Bound in fine blue cloth. Good binding and cover. Original label mounted on spine. xi, 108, 216 pages, 3 leaves of plates : 136 illustrations; Colored frontispiece ; 31 cm. Clean, unmarked pages. John William Draper (1811-1882), a physician, did extensive work on the nature of radiant heat, in proving that the rays of all wavelengths are capable of producing chemical changes, in the determination on the nature of the rays absorbed in the growth of plants in sunlight, and on the interpretation of capillary phenomena in physiology and in plant growth. He used intensively and smartly the science and art of photography, then in its infancy, to give visual proofs of his results. He was one of the first to photograph a human face, the moon, and the solar spectrum. Pritzel 2713.

Tout ce qui a paru, malgré la mention "erster Band". Importantes Notions de botanique, comprenant le texte fondamental de Schleiden, Beiträge zur Phytogenesis (p. 121-159), publié à l'origine dans les Archiv für Anatomie, Physiologie und wissenschaftliche Medicin, 1838 (pp 137-76), et par lequel le savant allemand contribua à démontrer, avec Theodor Schwamm, que la cellule est l'unité de base du vivant. "After [Robert Brown], Schleiden, in his 'Contributions to Photogenesis', taking the embryonic cell as his starting-point proceeded to attempt a reconstruction of the develepment of the cell. He went seriously astray in this but he insisted on the independance of the cell and presented for the first time the notion that a plant, for exemple, is a community of cells" (PMM). "Schleiden demonstrated that plant tissues are made up of and developed from groups of cells, of which he recognized the 'cycloblast' or cell-nucleus" (DSB). L'article fut immédiatement traduit en français et en anglais et réimprimé dans les présents mélanges de botanique. Matthias Jacob Schleiden (1804-1881) étudia le droit à l'université d'Heidelberg et exerça à Hambourg avant d'abandonner la profession en 1833 pour se consacrer l'étude de l'histoire naturelle à l'université de Göttingen puis à Berlin, où résidaient alors Robert Brown et Alexander von Humboldt.

      25 x 17 cm. VIII (4), 206 [2] + VIII, 248 [6] + VI, 186 Seiten, 1 Bl. Corrigenda. Leinenband der Zeit mit linearer Goldprägung und Rückentitel. *Erste Ausgabe in der westlichen Welt und erste Ausgabe in lateinischer Übersetzung. - Garrison & Morton 11 und 6485.93. - Susruta (Sushruta) war ein indischer Chirurg aus dem 6. Jahrhundert vor Christi. Er beschrieb etwa 300 Operationen und 121 Operationsinstrumente. Unter den Operationen, die er beschrieben hat, sind Star, Bruch, Steinschnitt, Kaiserschnitt etc. Instrumente die er beschrieb sind u. a. Sonden, Zangen, Lanzetten, und Katheter. Er übertrug auch Haut von anderen Körperstellen auf ein beschädigtes Ohr und entwickelte die Nasenplastik. Das Buch Susruta Samhita stammt vermutlich aus der Zeit um 350 n. Chr. und geht auf Susruta zurück. Es wurde vor dem Ende des 8. Jahrhunderts ins Arabische übersetzt. Ins Lateinische wurde es erst 1844 von Hessler übersetzt. Der Bauernsohn aus Krumbach in Bayern Franz Hessler (1799-1890) studierte Medizin und orientalische Sprachen in Heidelberg und Erlangen. Er wurde Gerichtsarzt und Bezirksarzt in Bayern nd lebte später als Privatgelehrter. - Die verdienstvolle Übersetzung klassischen Werkes der indischen Medizin in die Lateinische Sprache vollbrachte Hessler in 3 Teilen in den Jahren 1844 bis 1850. Das Werk wurde vermutlich in kleinen Auflage verlegt und ist sehr selten. Später folgten 1852 bis 1855 noch 2 Kommentarbände, die hier nicht vorliegen. - Exemplar aus der ehemaligen Bibliothek des Ophthalmologen Herzog Carl Theodor in Bayern (1839-1909). - Titelblätter und wenige Seiten mit leichter Altersbräunung, insgesamt sehr gut erhalten. / Garrison Morton 6485.93: "First translation of the Susruta Samhita into Latin, and the first publication of this text in the West. Susruta is said to have lived in the 6th or 5th centuries, BCE. The principal medical contribution of the ancient Hindus was in the field of surgery, and the greatest early Hindu surgeon was Susruta, a quasi-legendary character about whose dates there is some confusion. His collection, or "Samhita," is one of the two foundation works of ancient Indian medicine, the other being the Charaka Samhita, a work devoted to medicine. The Susruta Samhita includes the earliest description of plastic surgery this is contained in chapter XVI of the first volume, which is devoted to the repair of torn earlobes and damaged noses, and includes the first recorded description of the pedicle flap method, subsequently named the "Indian" method. Susruta is also credited with the description of 127 surgical instruments, and his descriptions of the operative techniques for abscesses, lithotomy, amputation, treatment of fractures and dislocations, hernia reduction and removal of foreign bodies were especially useful".

Leiter des Wiesbadener Kurorchesters] telegraphirt mir soeben: ‘Schwierigkeiten mit dem Theater. Kommen Sie bald.’ Da ich nicht vor Sonntag eintreffen kann, so bitte ich Sie vorläufig, diese Schwierigkeiten zu heben, von denen ich gar keine Vorstellung habe. Denn [Heinrich] Adelon hat den Urlaub für [Josef] Rebícek und Philippi schon Anfangs Oct. bewilligt und beide sind gesund, - ich weiß also nicht, woher die Schwierigkeiten kommen sollen. Man wird doch wohl nicht mich leiden lassen, (der ich als Fremder nach Wiesbaden komme) unter dem Antagonismus zwischen Theater und Curhaus [.] Ich gebe ja factisch das Concert, nur der Form wegen gehen die öffentlichen Ankündigungen von mir selbst und der Städt. Cur-Direction aus. Ich bitte Sie aber so freundlich als dringend, werther Kollege, diese plötzlich auftauchenden 'Schwierigkeiten' zu beseitigen; ich habe schon mit den Meiningern Aerger genug gehabt, und rechne fest darauf, daß mir nicht auch in Wiesbaden noch Hindernisse bereitet werden. Sollte Herr Hofrath Adelon den Urlaub in letzter Stunde zurücknehmen wollen? Das kann ich doch nicht glauben .".- Josef Rebícek (Prag 1844 - 1904 Berlin) war Violinist und Dirigent. Er kam 1866 als Konzertmeister nach Wiesbaden, wo er bis Ende 1882 neben Jahn der musikalische Leiter des königlichen Theaters war.- Heinrich Adelon (1822 - 1903 Wiesbaden) war 1871 - 1893 als Intendant und Direktor am Wiesbadener Hoftheater tätig.

Inscribed Presentation Copy. First edition, presentation copy, inscribed on the verso of the front free endpaper facing the title page: "with the author's love to miss biddulph - London, august 1844." Miss Biddulph was one of five neighbor daughters of the Barrett's when they lived in Herefordshire. EBB wrote in her diary that she found the Biddulphs "cold, formal and commonplace." The collection that won EBB international fame and which induced Robert Browning's first letter to her. "The new ballads in the Poems of 1844 became EBB's most popular works. 'Rhyme of the Duchess May', with its star-crossed lovers plunging to their deaths on a stallion from a tower, had such a sensational effect that one lady reportedly fell 'into hysterics.' 'Lady Geraldine's Courtship' ... was the most celebrated, with its story of a love match between an earl's daughter and a peasant poet. It was EBB's answer to Tennyson's 'Locksley Hall', although it is best known today for its salute to Robert Browning for poems likened to pomegranates, with 'a heart within blood-tinctured, of a veined humanity' (suggested by Browning's Bells and Pomegranates series). EBB had long admired Browning as an 'indubitable genius' and one of the 'demigods' ... [and] Browning for his part had long admired her works. The sensuous compliment to Browning for poems revealing a 'heart' like 'blood-tinctured' pomegranates led to his first letter of 10 January 1845, beginning 'I love your verses with all my heart, dear Miss Barrett' and proceeding to his praise of their 'fresh strange music, the affluent language, the exquisite pathos and true new brave thought'...

        Autograph letter signed ("Béranger"). Paris, 3. XI. 1844.

      1844. 8vo (205:130 mm). 3 pp. on a single bifolium. Address panel to verso. To the wife of a Parisian police official, making enquiries about the female perpetrator of an acid attack on an unfaithful lover. A very intriguing letter in which the poet, chansonnier and champion of social justice asks for information from the wife of one Brissot-Thivars, employed by Préfecture de Police, on behalf of the family of a young girl imprisoned at St. Lazare for having thrown vitriol in the face of an unfaithful lover. Béranger seems sympathetic, and had obviously been approached by the girl's family as a result of his reputation as a friend to the unfortunate, especially they young. He writes that the girl, the daughter of a General who had been cruelly treated by the Restoration, and who was previously of good character finds herself imprisoned with common prostitutes. Béranger seems to be taking advantage of his friend Madame Brissot-Thivars' connections, and requests discretion, asking that his name is not mentioned in connection with the affair and that M. Brissot-Thivars knows nothing of his enquiry. He writes that if she cannot help she may simply burn the letter. This "crime passionnel" of vitriol-throwing reached epidemic proportions in Paris later in the century and caused major social concern. - Four original folds, slight staining, but clean overall. Provenance: Liepmannssohn, Berlin.
