        Ins arktische Amerika 1819-1822

      320 S. John Franklin erlangte wie kaum ein zweiter Forscher Berühmtheit - nicht durch seine Reisen und Entdeckungen, sondern durch sein Scheitern. Denn weit mehr als seine Arktis-Expedition weckte sein Verschwinden Aufmerksamkeit: 1845 stach er in See, um die Nordwestpassage zu finden dann, im Sommer desselben Jahres, wurden seine Schiffe "Erebus" und "Terror" zum letzten Mal gesichtet. Es folgte eine beispiellose Suchaktion nach Franklin und seinen über hundert Begleitern. Die ganze Welt nahm daran Anteil.Reihe Alte abenteuerliche Reiseberichte empfang 9783522600477

        Embossed Panoramic View of London. As seen from the top of St. Pauls Cathedral. Printed in colours.

      London: Dobbs, Bailey & Co., [1845] - Square octavo (folded: 192 x 197 mm, unfolded:1270 x 355 mm). Original olive-green vertically-ribbed cloth, front cover gilt lettered and with a large gilt pictorial stamp (showing a paddle steamer on the Thames, old Blackfriars Bridge and St Paul's), slits for ties (no longer present). Case only slightly sunned at periphery. In excellent condition. Two eight-panel linen-backed sections: upper section comprising line engraved view and key of principal features to the lower embossed section (printed in brown, pale blue and pale yellow), both within ornamental borders. First edition, a highly unusual record of the extraordinary panorama of London executed from the roof of Saint Paul's by the surveyor and panoramist Thomas Hornor (1785-1844) and issued to mark the re-opening, in 1845, of the building that housed it, one of the most famous London landmarks of its time: The Colosseum. Around 1822 Horner "began his most spectacular project, that of a 360 degree panorama of London with the summit of St Paul's as the viewpoint. In a cabin precariously balanced on scaffolding erected in connection with repairs to the cathedral, he sketched and measured. Although he attracted considerable publicity for his enterprise and admiration for his courage, few subscribed to his initial scheme of publishing the work as a series of prints. However, the MP and banker Rowland Stephenson sponsored the construction in Regent's Park of a dome by Decimus Burton, second in size in England only to that of St Paul's, in which Hornor's work was to be displayed. In it in 1825 the artist E. T. Parris began the daunting task of transferring views from flat sheets to 42,000 square feet of curved canvas. It was due for completion in 1827 but was far from finished by the end of 1828 when Stephenson absconded to the USA, deeply in debt. In January 1829 Hornor threw open the unfinished Colosseum to the public, who could enjoy the panorama at various levels, riding upwards in the 'ascending room', the first passenger lift in England and Hornor's own design. Income was large, but costs were larger yet, and later that year Hornor also absconded to the USA" (ODNB) "Despite healthy audiences, Hornor was never able to pay off his initial debt. In 1835, he sold the Colosseum to an unknown buyer who fared no better than he had. Not until 1844, when it was bought up by a financier with a feel for business, was the project finally finished. William Bradwell closed the place down for a year, restored the canvas, finished the surrounding fixtures and fittings (a glyptological collection, Swiss 'cottage', galleries, exhibitions, etc.) and then opened the doors of what was to become one of London's great cultural centres, attracting even more people to what had become a show, a museum and a club. The Colosseum became an extremely fashionable place whose popularity lasted until the end of the 1850s, when it in turn gave way to the exotic panoramas (Rome, Paris, the Lake of Thun) and, more particularly, the new attractions on offer at the Crystal Palace" (Bernard Comment, The Panorama, 1999, p. 28). By the time of the new opening Hornor was dead, dying "in penury (and possibly insane) in New York city" (ODNB); ironically, thirty years later his panorama was shipped to America and displayed on Broadway. This is a beautifully executed embossed panorama, extraordinarily detailed and subtly coloured. It would have been issued as a lavish souvenir and advertisement by the Colosseum's new owner, the shrewd theatre manager David Montague, who employed William Bradwell, chief set designer at Covent Garden, to make improvements to the building. At the same time he issued A Description of the Colosseum as Re-Opened in MDCCCXLV, which reproduced the eight coloured sections of Kronheim and Skirving's panorama. Very scarce: Copac locates copies at only three British and Irish institutional libraries (Senate House, Wales, Oxford), OCLC adds no further examples; we have traced only one copy at [Attributes: First Edition]

        Narrative of the United States Exploring Expedition. During the years 1838, 1839, 1840, 1841, 1842..

      Philadelphia: Lea & Blanchard, 1845. Occasional light staining or offsetting; very sight chafing to corners and joints but an extremely good set with its original binding bright.. Six volumes (the last an atlas), imperial octavo, with a portrait, 64 plates and nine maps in the text volumes, five folded maps in the atlas, numerous vignettes; original dark brown cloth, gilt vignettes on spines, gilt eagles on covers. The splendid first public edition of the narrative of the first American naval exploring expedition, the massive official American expedition, one of the three great Antarctic voyages of the 1840s. The explorations of Wilkes along with the English under Ross and the French under Dumont d'Urville form the basis for today's territorial claims, and together established the knowledge of the frozen continent on which all subsequent expeditions built.Among the great achievements of the Wilkes expedition was the detailed study of the flora and fauna of the many countries visited, the scientists making frequent and long excursions into the interiors. The expedition explored the South Pacific Islands, Australia and New Zealand, the Hawaiian Islands, the Northwest Coast, California, Singapore, the Cape of Good Hope and St. Helena, whilst the greatest achievement was the expedition into the Antarctic in the winter of 1839-40. Wilkes was the first to announce the existence of an Antarctic continent.Only 1000 copies of this were printed, the first edition of the narrative of the first American naval exploring expedition to be generally available to the public; it was preceded by the very rare quarto official and unofficial editions, which were printed in 100 and 150 copies respectively (many of which were subsequently destroyed) and are today almost unknown on the market. Later editions, including the second 1845 octavo edition, are smaller in size, are generally of inferior quality and do not include the fine steel-engravings found here. this is thus the much preferred edition for the collector of Antarctic material. Provenance: Private collection (Australia)

He goes on to tempt Leigh with the prospect of a swim, informing him ?it is not necessary (except for the ladies) to go through the ceremony of engaging a bathing machine - you just [deleted] of your things and walk into the sea as you feel inclined?

        EL CATÓLICO: periodico religioso, politico-cristiano, cientifico y literario

      1845/1847., México 1845 - Colección completa de este periodico Mexicano religioso-politico-cientifico – ilustrado con litografias. INTERESANTE PERIODICO MEXICO, COMPLETO del cual solo localizamos otro ejemplar en la British Library. Aunque por su titulo parece ser meramente religioso su contenido incluye politica y ciencia, por lo que el interes es mayor. "Incuestionable es la importancia de la prensa periódica y su contenido como un reflejo del desenvolvimiento de una sociedad. El estudio y análisis del periódico es una fuente de conocimiento que nos permite, observar el proceder de una sociedad. Los elementos de análisis que se tienen que considerar son varios, puesto que el siglo XIX mexicano encierra tropiezos, revueltas, ambiciones, reformas, intervenciones, siempre con la mira a la construcción de los Estado Unidos Mexicanos, y cada etapa, cada momento está registrado en la prensa. Igualmente, en los proyectos debatidos para la cimentación de México como Estado-nación, se observa la postura del poderío de la Iglesia. Tres siglos de colaboración directa en la política no fue una costumbre que fácilmente se olvidara, que se dejara de practicar. No fue extraño que el poder religioso reconociera el papel del periódico y al periodista como orientador de la opinión pública. Religiosos y seglares ilustrados buscaron cultivar, fomentar y propagar sus dogmas e intereses en la prensa religiosa" ( Dra Adriana Pineda Soto, Universidad Michoacana de San Nicolas de Hidalgo). A complete collection of this religious-political-scientific Mexican periodical- illustrated with lithographs - 3 vols; 26 issue (COMPLETE); contemporary half calf; 11 full page plates. AN INTERESTING MEXICAN PERIODICAL, A COMPLETE RUN of which we only locate one other in the British Library. Athough its title seems to be purely religious, its contents include politics and science, amplifying interest in it. "Unquestionably it is of importance among periodical literature, and its contents reflects the development of a society. The study and analysis of the periodical is a source of knowledge that permits us to observe the direction of a society. The elements of analysis that must be considered are various, given that the 19th century in Mexico contains obstacles, revolts, ambitions, reforms, interventions, always with a view toward the construction of the United Mexican States, and each stage, each moment is registered in the press. Equally, in the projects debated for the foundations of Mexico as a nation state, the posture and power of the Church is observed. Three centuries of direct collaboration in politics was not a custom easily forgotten, that would eliminated from practice. It was not strange that the religious powers would recognize the role of the periodical and the journalist as a director of public opinion. Enlightened religious and secular persons sought to cultivate, foment, and propagate their doctrines and interests in the religious press." (Dra. Adriana Pineda Soto, Universidad Michoacana de San Nicolás de Hidalgo). 3vols. volumen(es)/volume(s) S.P. páginas

As a title page an engraved copy of this plate is used. On the backs, and sometimes in the margins, are light pencil notes that serve as captions for the watercolors and provide information as to placement in the book.

        An original design for a porcelain vase

      [Paris, 1845. Pen, ink, and watercolour. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling and mild foxing. A rare example of an original watercolour design for porcelain, by the Samson factory of Paris. This finished design was intended as a reference source from which the porcelain painters could work, using the design as a guide for the colours and image to be transformed from paper into fine porcelain. The French porcelain manufactory of Samson & Cie. was established by "Edmé Samson (b. Paris, 1810; d. Paris, 1891) at 7, Rue Vendôme (later Rue Béranger) in Paris. The intention of the firm was to reproduce ceramics from museums and private collections, and it claimed that all such reproductions would be distinctly marked to avoid confusion with the originals. In 1864, the factory was moved to Montreuil by Samson's son, Emile Samson (1837-1913). The range of wares included copies of 18th-century porcelain from such factories as Sèvres, Chelsea, Meissen and Derby, Chinese export-wares, especially armorial wares decorated with famille rose colours and mugs decorated with the Fitzhugh pattern, Delftware, Iznikware, maiolica and faience."

        REPORT OF THE EXPLORING EXPEDITION TO THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS IN THE YEAR 1842, AND TO OREGON AND NORTH CALIFORNIA IN THE YEARS 1843-'44. Superb Association Copy Inscribed by James Buchanan to Confederate General John B. Gordon

      Blair and Rives, Washington 1845 - Octavo (5-3/4" x 9-1/4") bound in publisher's brown blind-stamped cloth, gilt lettering on the spine, 583 pages. Illustrated with 21 (of 22) plates and 4 (of 5) maps--lacking the large folding map, as often the case, tucked into the pocket of the rear cover and with two maps defective. INSCRIBED and SIGNED on the front endpaper by the fifteenth President of the United States: "For John B. Gordon Esquire/with the kind regards of/James Buchanan." A very interesting copy in that Buchanan was elected in 1856 as a compromise between the two sides of the slavery question in a three-way battle with Millard Fillmore and the author of this book, John C. Fremont, the first Republican candidate for president. With the country on the verge of civil war, he was succeeded in office by Abraham Lincoln shortly before the firing on Fort Sumter. John Brown Gordon, one of Robert E. Lee's best generals, fought in the Battles of Gettysburg and of Antietam, where he refused to leave the front until he suffered his fifth wound of the battle. Gordon was a firm opponent of Reconstruction and the titular head, or Grand Dragon, of the Ku Klux Klan in Georgia. He was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1873, and in 1879 became the first ex-Confederate to preside over the Senate. Light to moderate foxing with some mild staining to the plates. Spine tips worn but covers decent. But for the noted illustration defects, a nice copy with a dark, bold inscription [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        So much of the diary of Lady Willoughby as relates to her domestic history, & to the eventful period of the reign of Charles the First

      London: Longman, Brown, Green, & Longmans (pr. by C. Whittingham), 1845. 12mo (17.3 cm, 6.8"). [4], 220 pp. [with the same author's] Some further portions of the diary of Lady Willoughby which do relate to her domestic history and to the events of the latter years of the reign of King Charles the First, the Protectorate and the Restoration. London: Longman, Brown, Green, & Longmans, 1848. 12mo. [6], 215, [1] pp.    As per the "Address to the Reader" of So Much of the Diary, etc. "the style of Printing and general appearance of this Volume have been adopted by the Publishers merely to be in accordance with the design of the Author, who in this Work personates a lady of the seventeenth Century" — with "personat[ing]" being the key word, as this is => the diary of a real 17th-century woman as imagined, both deeply and extensively, by a Victorian woman who had immersed herself in the history and memoirs of the "diarist's" period. Published anonymously, it was on its first appearance often sincerely attributed to Elizabeth Cecil Willoughby, Baroness Willoughby (1606–61), perhaps helped on by the fact that Longman had gone so far as to commission a new font from => the Chiswick Press, a recasting of Caslon Old Face, with "antique" headpieces and decorative woodcut initials, pages framed in double-ruled borders, and up-front woodcut coats of arms further employed to enhance the "journal's" verisimilitude. According to the DNB (online), the publication "fostered a minor vogue for first-person historical narratives in contemporary typefaces, notably Anne Manning's 1850 account of Mary Powell (Milton's first wife), and Thackeray's Henry Esmond (1852)."    Lady Willoughby's husband, Francis Willoughby, was a political intriguer who originally opposed the King, but later fell out with the Parliamentarians and joined the Royalists, fleeing to the Caribbean where he eventually became Governor of Barbados and established the short-lived colony of Willoughbyland (in what is now Suriname) before being restored to his estates in England. The diary entries attributed to his wife, which end shortly before Willoughby's departure for the islands, describe the major political and military events of the day against a background of her concern for her children, her love of her mother and husband, and her piety and devotion. Rathbone paid enough attention to detail to have "Lady Willoughby" offer a recipe against giddiness "given to mee by Mr. Gerard's Aunte" — the recipe being quoted in full directly from John Gerard's Herball of 1597 — but altered the course of historical events very slightly by extending the life of her daughter Diana about six years past her actual death and increasing the number of her deceased children!    So Much of the Diary, here in its 1845 second edition, was originally printed in 1844, while Some Further Portions is here in its first printing.    Binding: Contemporary => matched bindings done by Zaehnsdorf, signed on each front turn-in: brown morocco, framed and panelled in gilt and black fillets with gilt-stamped fleur-de-lis corner fleurons, turn-ins similarly designed, and board edges with gilt roll; spines with gilt-stamped titles and volume labels, blind-stamped compartment decorations, and gilt-stamped fleurs-de-lis in compartments. Top edges gilt. Back pastedown of each volume with gilt-stamped example of Zaehnsdorf's oval medieval bookbinding apprentice device, from a design by Jost Amman.    Provenance: Front fly-leaf of second volume with a woman's tantalizingly not-quite-decipherable ownership inscription: "E[something] Anne Fan[something!]s [/] Farnley 1848." Most recently in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.         NSTC 2R2740 & 2R2743; Ing, Charles Whittingham: Printer, 1795-1876, 32. Bindings as above, variously rubbed to extremities; offsetting to endpapers from turn-ins. Vol. II with ownership inscription as above. Pages lightly age-toned with occasional minor smudges or spots; front fly-leaf of vol. II (only) more notably spotted. => A handsome set of an intriguing Victorian — and feminine — perspective on the domestic side of this dramatic period in the 17th century.

        La Vicomtesse de Cambes.

      - Paris, L. de Potter, 1845. In-8, demi-maroquin olive de l'époque, dos lisses ornés d'un décor rocaille doré en long, titre et tomaison dorés au centre, 334 p. et 324 p. faux-titres et titres compris. Edition originale du troisième volet de la tétralogie romanesque que Dumas consacra aux femmes sous la Fronde. Parus séparément dans leurs premières éditions, ils seront réunis à partir de 1848 sous le titre général de "La guerre des femmes". "Peu après avoir terminé ‘le Vicomte de Bragelonne’ (1847), Dumas se rend compte qu'il n'arrive pas à vivre sans ses Mousquetaires et entreprend la rédaction de cette ‘Guerre des Femmes’ où l'ardeur à vivre et à se battre change de sexe sans changer de nature. En 1650, sous la Fronde, ces femmes ne le cèdent en rien aux porteurs de rapière pour ce qui est du panache, de la ferveur batailleuse et de l'amoureuse passion. " (Phébus, 2003). Très rare, seulement 4 ex. recensés dans le monde (WorldCat) dont un unique dans les bibliothèques françaises: celui de la BnF. (Munro, 110. Parran, 53. Reed, 186. Vicaire, III, 372-373). Quelques rousseurs et brunissures plus soutenues à certains feuillets. Dos légèrement frottés. Bon exemplaire, dans une reliure romantique de l'époque à décor rocaille. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Variationi d'Amore.

      1845 - Two suites of erotic watercolours by the same hand(?), the first consisting of 9 watercolours (numbered I to IX) captioned in French and German, the second being 6 unnumbered watercolours captioned in German, both suites within gilt borders, image size 16 x 11.5cm., all pictures with overlays which lift to reveal erotic details, each image in a passe partout, well preserved in modern red morocco-backed clamshell box, morocco lettering piece to upper cover. The fragility of the overslips makes the present collection a rare surviving example of this style of erotica. Seemingly innocent conversation-piece watercolours change into something entirely different when the overslip is lifted to reveal. all! The captions which accompany the watercolours make for great humour. A delightful item. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Die Friedenskirche, Potsdam, 1856. Original-Photographie. Vintage. Salzpapier-Abzug. Verlagsseitig montiert. Köln, verlegt durch F.C. Eisen, 1856. Bildgröße 25 x 38 cm. Blattgröße 44,5 x 63 cm.

      Auf dem Träger Blindstempel des Verlegers (der Träger etwas gebräunt und angestaubt sowie einem kleinen Einriß im linken weißen Rand, am oberen linken Rand des Trägers eine Knickspur, der rechte Rand des Trägers etwas fleckig, der Abzug in den Rändern geringfügig blass, sonst sehr gut erhalten). Rarissimum der frühen Potsdam-Photographie, vermutlich die erste großformatige fotografische Ansicht der berühmten Kirche. Die Grundsteinlegung erfolgte am 14. April 1845, die Weihe erfolgte am 24. September 1848, während sich der Bau der Nebenanlagen bis 1854 hinzog. Die frühesten überlieferten Potsdam-Fotos stammen von sog. 'Reisephotographen', also solchen, die nicht ortsansässig waren. In Potsdam waren dies Michiels (1823-1887), der 1856 dort photographierte, und die Brüder Schneider, die erst 1859 Berlin und Potsdam bereisten. Michiels ist vor allem für seine Aufnahmen vom Kölner Dom bekannt, von seinen - hervorragenden - Potsdam-Photographien tauchten bisher nur ganz wenige auf. Vier Motive wurden 2006 im Rahmen der Ausstellung 'Auslöser Potsdam' gezeigt, weitere kennt man nur aus dem Inserat, das der Verleger Eisen 1858 in der Leipziger 'Illustrirten Zeitung' schaltete. Abgesehen von der Seltenheit ist das große Format und der ausgezeichnete Erhaltungszustand des hier angebotenen Abzugs bemerkenswert. Der seinerzeitige Preis betrug übrigens 2 Taler (Thaler) pro Blatt, das entspricht etwa dem Wochengehalt eines Webers um 1850 oder dem halben Monatslohn einer Stickerin oder Weißnäherin in Berlin. - Vgl. Auslöser Potsdam, 29 - Heidtmann, Wie das Photo..., S. 55.

        An original design for a porcelain plate

      [Paris, 1845. Pen, ink, and watercolour. Good condition apart from some overall light soiling, minor foxing. A rare example of an original watercolour design for porcelain, by the Samson factory of Paris.This finished design was intended as a reference source from which the porcelain painters could work, using the design as a guide for the colours and image to be transformed from paper into fine porcelain.The French porcelain manufactory of Samson & Cie. was established by "Edmé Samson (b. Paris, 1810; d. Paris, 1891) at 7, Rue Vendôme (later Rue Béranger) in Paris. The intention of the firm was to reproduce ceramics from museums and private collections, and it claimed that all such reproductions would be distinctly marked to avoid confusion with the originals. In 1864, the factory was moved to Montreuil by Samson's son, Emile Samson (1837-1913). The range of wares included copies of 18th-century porcelain from such factories as Sèvres, Chelsea, Meissen and Derby, Chinese export-wares, especially armorial wares decorated with famille rose colours and mugs decorated with the Fitzhugh pattern, Delftware, Iznikware, maiolica and faience."

        Ketubah [ILLUMINATED MANUSRIPT] [UNIQUE]

      Isfahan, Persia 1845 - Jewish marriage contract illuminated in the style of the city of Isfahan in Persia, the most important Islamic country for ornamentation of both Jewish ketubot and Islamic nik?h-n?mah or s?n?de ezdev?j. In fact, the widespread use of decorated marriage contracts by Muslims in Persia contributed to the popularity of their use among Persian Jews.* The dominant motif, a sun with rays and human visage behind a ramping lion, is an ancient astrological reference, a traditional symbol of Persia and was the state emblem of Iran until the revolution in 1979. It is unusual to find patriotic elements in marriage contracts, and this motif is apparently found only in Jewish contracts from Isfahan.* Between the lions is a native cypress tree, to which a young woman in love was often compared. The Star of David, flanked by two male peacocks, contains the words Zion and Mogen David. Surrounding the signed text are flowers, fruit, Islamic arches and additional birds in cypress trees-a Persian motif called gol-o-morq, also found in Islamic marriage contracts.* (In Islamic countries both religions honor the prohibition against depicting human figures). Handwritten in Aramaic and Hebrew, the contractual text, the origin of which is derived from the Talmud, is signed by two witnesses and the scribe near the river Amyeh Dorin on the fifth day of the week, second day of Nissan 5605. The contract specifies that Shlomo ben David pledges to pay the bride a mohar of 200 zuzim (equal to 25 pieces of pure silver) in the event of divorce. He is bound to uphold the contract according to the laws of Moshe and David. The beautiful virgin Esther bat Moshe's dowry is 180 zuzim. The border text, composed in monumental square lettering, begins at top right with a celebratory blessing in Aramaic: be-simanah tava u-bemazala ya'ah (a good sign and good luck may we have). The remainder of the border is Isaiah 61: 9-10, a blessing for the nation in Hebrew that regards the garments of salvation and righteousness as a bridegroom's priestly crown and a bride's adorning jewels. Ink and watercolor on paper, with extensive gold overpainting. Curiously, it seems the handpainted art on this ketubah is more luxurious than many from Isfahan at the time, yet the mohar and dowry amounts here are significantly less than others. 23.5 x 26 inches. Vibrant. Floated in a modern gold frame. * Ketubbah: Jewish Marriage Contracts of the Hebrew Union College Skirball Museum and Klau Library by Shalom Sabar. 1990, USA: The Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion. p327.

        ALS - Eigenhändiger Brief mit Unterschrift.

      Berlin 26. XII.1845. 2 1/2 Seiten 4. Johann Friedrich Dieffenbach (1792-1847), Chirurg, Wegbereiter der Transplantationschirurgie und der plastischen Chirurgie, führte die Äthernarkose in Deutschland ein. - An den Verleger Friedrich Brockhaus in Leipzig, dem er das Werk "Physiologie pathologique" des aus Breslau stammenden und in Paris ansässigen Mediziners Hermann Lebert (1813-1878) empfiehlt."... Ein ausgezeichneter Gelehrter H. Dr. Lebert ... kam vor 2 Monaten nach Berlin um hier höchstens 14 Tage zu verweilen. Angezogen und hingerissen von dem was er in meiner Klinik erlebte, entschloß er sich bis zum Frühjahr hier zu bleiben und ein chirurg.-physiologisches Werk nach dem was er bei mir erlebt zu schreiben. Er hat in diesen kaum 2 Monaten Unglaubliches geschrieben, und mir vorgelesen. Ich glaube das Werk wird trefflich ... Unzähligemal angeführt und dadurch gewitzigt würde ich mich auf keinen Fall auf ein Zureden einlassen, aber der Lebert kann nur Ausgezeichnetes leisten, er ist ein Mirakel in schnellem und schönen Arbeiten ...Es ist mir recht peinlich daß ich Ew. Wohlgeboren noch kein M[anu]sc[ri]pt sende ..., aber seit einer Reise von Paris bin ich Abends und Nachts von so heftigen rheumatischen Schmerzen gefoltert und kann sie nicht los werden, daß ich wenig habe arbeiten können ..."Ferner über die erfreuliche Aufnahme seiner in diesem Jahr erschienenen "Operativen Chirurgie" in der Fachwelt - "Ich bin bei dem Neide und der Bösartigkeit der Welt wirklich verwundert wie die schärfsten Kritiker von denen ich nur Gift und Galle erwartete, mein Buch so viel Ehre angethan haben ..."Darunter ein mehrzeiliger eigenhändiger Antwortvermerk von Friedrich Brockhaus vom 7.I.1846 (rote Tinte).In einem Umschlag der Sammlung Brockhaus.

        The overland guide-book; a complete vade-mecum for the overland traveller.

      London: Wm. H. Allen and Co 1845 - 8vo., two folding maps printed on silk, 6 engraved folding plates showing 8 ship plans, 3 whole-page and 8 smaller woodcuts, viii + (2) + 134 + (2)pp., followed at the end of the volume with 40pp. of advertisements (including priced lists of travellers' clothes and other supplies), original blind-stamped cloth, rebacked, gilt title on spine, but the binding generally rather worn, endpapers renewed. A good sound copy with occasional readers' annotations. First edition. An interesting attempt 'to combine, in a compact and convenient form, all the information necessary to the prosecution of the journey overland to India and vice versa' [Introduction]. The term 'overland' in fact was commonly used to refer to access to India by means of steam-vessels via the Mediterranean and the Red Sea as opposed to the long sea voyage via the Cape. The several ships used by the Peninsular and Oriental Company (P. & O.) are here illustrated in detailed plan form to enable prospective passengers travelling to Alexandria and beyond to make informed choices when making travel plans. The author provides a great deal of specific information about rules on board, ticket prices, facilities provided, clothes, import charges &c. &c. Passengers returning to England were allowed to bring home bullion, diamonds, live creatures, pictures, and plants and trees duty free. Barber himself was an enthusiastic promoter of steam communication with India. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
