      Lithograph, lightly tinted (Excellent Condition, strong printing quality, wide blank margins), full sheet: 74 x 55 cm; printed area: 45 x 36.5 cm. - [Bavaria, probably Munich, circa 1845]. Extremely rare, seemingly unrecorded – a large-format lithographed portrait of King Ludwig I of Bavaria, largely constructed through the extraordinary technique of micrography. - This impressive work is a large, lithographed half-length, seated portrait of King Ludwig I of Bavaria, most of which is constructed through the extraordinary technique of micrography. The work was "drawn and lithographed" in Bavaria, likely in Munich, around 1845, by Johann Baptist Braunhofer, an otherwise unknown artist, but evidently one of considerable skill. The basic template for the work is taken from a well-known oil portrait of Ludwig I by Beda. The present composition is faithful to the antecedent except that the king’s body, much of his throne, and the table and box in the background, are entirely constructed of micrographic lines of text in gothic script, extolling the monarch’s many achievements. The technique of micrography is an ancient one, having been developed by Jewish scribes in Egypt around the 9th Century. It was practiced in Germany by Jewish artists as early as 1300, and was adapted by engravers, such as Johann Micheal Püchler, during the late 17th Century. However, because of the extremely demanding technical nature of micrography, only a small number of artists ever practiced the technique, such that all pieces, in any media, are today very rare. Lithography is an especially challenging medium in which to execute micography, requiring far greater skill than simply drafting, or even engraving, the miniscule lines of text. The present work, executed in Gothic script, is thus an especially impressive accomplishment. Indeed, very few examples of lithographed micrography are known. The mysterious creator of the present work, Johann Baptist Braunhofer, was a contemporary of Louis Glück Rosenthal (1804-74), the Poznan-born Jewish artist who created several magnificent lithographed micrographic works while resident in London. The subject of the work, King Ludwig I of Bavaria (1786 – 1868, reigned 1825 - 1848), was the most revered Bavarian ruler of the modern era. He was a great statesman and patron of the arts, sciences, as well as a major collector of antiquities. However, he fell afoul of the new liberal trends brought about by the Revolution of 1848, and was, that year compelled to abdicate his throne, spending the rest of his life in exile. That being said, Ludwig I maintains an estimable legacy to this day, as many of his collections form the basis of Munich’s great museums. The present work is extremely rare, and seemingly unrecorded; we have not been able to trace even a mention of the work anywhere. References: N / A, Unrecorded.

        Manuscript Diary from 1842-1845

      New York 1845 - Small quarto. Blank book with lined pages. Half leather with marbled paper boards. Closely and legibly written on 191 pages and consisting of approximately 50,000 words. Lightly worn edges and rubbing, very good or better. Marriage certificate signed by Gardiner Spring, minister of the New York Old Brick Church and by wedding guests, (Samuel R. Betts, Anna Metcalf, and A. J. Spring, etc.) and newspaper articles about William H. Metcalf laid in. An engaging diary written between 1842 and 1845, jointly written by James W. Metcalf and his wife, Maria C. Betts Metcalf. Maria Betts was the daughter of a New York State Judge and U.S. Representative, Samuel R. Betts; James Metcalf was a clerk at the District Court, Southern District of New York. He was also the brother of noted art collector and amateur photographer, William H. Metcalf of Milwaukee. The diary begins with their wedding day on July 12, 1842 in New York ("the great event is over at last we are one") and continues with a detailed account of their adventures on their honeymoon with each of the pages numbered and dated, much describing the beauty that surrounds them. "There is a very picturesque view of the city from the top of one of the hills in the cemetery, near here, and the trees are so arranged, either accidentally, or by design, as to have the appearance of a frame to the picture, which produces a singular effect." On their honeymoon they traveled to several cities in Canada including Ontario, Montreal, and Quebec before returning home to New York in early August 1842 ending their "Wedding Jaunt Times."The entries next tell of the couple's daily lives together. Many treat on identical subjects from different perspectives recounting their walks about the town, seeing family or friends, and the sermons they hear on Sundays. While most are well-received there are some that James comments on: "the sermon was not so well digested as I have heard them and is not so easily summed up. We are all mortal and if our fathers and even the prophets died, upon what grounds can we hope to escape? We should then prepare for death and that immediately." Both Maria and James write of her ill-health, presumably from her first pregnancy, and she is often unable to attend church. It's only after having the child that she resumes her attendance. Their child is not talked about often in the diary but was born sometime in June 1843. "This night our dear boy has been publicly dedicated to the lord. He was baptized. and named James Betts." While James has written most of the entries in the beginning of the diary, Maria wrote a significant portion of the later ones. During this time James was away on a business trip and Maria wrote every day, from the time he left to the time he returned, about what has gone on. Many entries speak of his absence and waiting on his next letters, "no letters this morning, therefore I have been quite sanguine in my expectations of seeing James tonight, I am not disappointed." When James returned the entries become spaced out over weeks to months rather than days apart as they had been previously. They write about business endeavors, the passing of loved ones, and how is child growing. "Today our dear boy is nine months old. He can walk alone (for a short distance) and has cut his first tooth, a good size front one in the upper jaw." The entries for 1844 end in April of that year but there is one last entry, several pages long, written on September 23, 1845. This entry by Maria glosses over the time missed in-between. While their lives stayed mostly consistent the larger events include their having another child and losing some of their family members. Maria writes, "I hope that with the assistance of my husband we shall be more diligent in future," however, this entry ends abruptly and no other entries follow. Genealogy records indicate that the couple had three more children. Many of the children and James himself were outlived by Maria who eventually passed aw [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Furniture with Candelabra and Interior Decoration designed by R. Bridgens

      William Pickering, London 1845 - (14 3/4 x 11 1/2 inches). Hand-coloured engraved title page, 2pp. letterpress list of plates, 58 hand-coloured engraved, etched and aquatinted plates (one double-page and assigned two numbers in the plate list, 5 by and after Bridgen, 22 by Shaw after Bridgen, and 31 unassigned). Contemporary plum cloth, neatly rebacked in green morocco, silver tooling to the spine and lettering to the spine label, late 19th-century paper label with manuscript title on upper cover, later endpapers Provenance: J. Paul Lammers Furniture Designer (neat ink stamp to title, plate list and 7 plates) A finely-coloured copy of the second issue, of the first complete edition of this important early Victorian source work for furniture design in the Grecian, Elizabethan and Gothic styles. The first edition of this work is extremely rare and is known currently from the single incomplete copy in the RIBA British Architectural Library. It seems probable that the publication of this first edition, begun in 1825, was abandoned, and it was not until 1838 that the complete suite of plates was first published. The plate list is a little misleading as it runs from 1 to 60, but the work is complete as is: number 1 is the title, the double-page plate is numbered '53,54', the 57 single-page plates are numbered 2 - 52 and 55-60. Bridgens served as a pupil of George Bullock of Liverpool before trying to set up in business in Birmingham in the 1820s. The venture was not a great success, despite executing some interesting and avant-garde neo-Jacobean furniture designs for James Watt of Aston Hall, and Bridgens left England in 1825 for the West Indies. He stayed in Trinidad for seven years before returning to England, and in 1836 published his West Indian Scenery. from Sketches during a residence . in Trinidad . The present work followed, and seems to have been Bridgens final published work: the 1845 watermarks in the present example suggest that the complete work enjoyed some success: enough to warrant the publication of this second issue. Cf. British Architectural Library Early Printed Books 379 (and cf. 378 for the incomplete 1st edition); cf. Spelman 36:105. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Orig. drab boards, blue-green pebble grained cloth spines, sl. chipped & browned printed paper labels; inner hinges sl. weak. Contemp. ownership signature of Clement Sorby on titlepages & leading f.e.p. vol. I. Esher Armorial bookplates & later book labels of Christopher Clark Geest. A v.g. copy in the original binding. Each volume housed in a pale brown cloth fold-over box.Published before the first American edition of the same year. Scarce in commerce; only three copies recorded at auction since 1978. Cooper's second part of a trilogy that begins with Satanstoe and ends with The Redskins. The novels address the issue of land acquisition (measured by the chainbearer) and the westward march of 'civilisation' resulting in the displacement of native Americans. 'The plot has thickened' Cooper writes in his preface; 'and bloodshed has come to deepen the stain left on the country by the widespread and bold assertion of false principles. That portions of the community have behaved nobly under this sudden outbreak of a lawless and unprincipled combination to rob, is undeniable, and ought to be dwelt on with gratitude, and an honest pride ... but, while all this is admitted, and admitted not altogether without hope, yet are there grounds for fear, so reasonable and strong, that no writer who is faithful to the real interests of his country ought, for a single moment, to lose sight of them'.

His account, Voyage autour du monde, published between 1840 and 1846, ranks as one of the most important nineteenth century works on Pacific voyages. 'Dupetit-Thouars's account of his stay in California, in 1837, is one of the most important and complete records of the Mexican period. In 1838, the Vénus made a run for Easter Island, further investigated the coast of South America, then sailed for the Galápagos and Marquesas Islands, Tahiti and New Zealand. At Tahiti the expedition forced Queen Pomaré to write a letter to the King of France apologising for mistreatment of French priests, to pay an indemnity, and to salute the French flag. He had also made a treaty with Kamehameha III of Hawaii. After visits to Sydney and Mauritius, the ship sailed home, arriving after a voyage of thirty months…' (Hill).

Mezza pergamena con angoli, piatti rinnovati, titolo e fregi in nero ai dorsi. Copertine originali conservate. Il volume primo dedicato ai cronisti e scrittori del periodo normanno, il volume secondo ai cronisti e scrittori del periodo svevo. L'autore in origine intendeva pubblicare una Raccolta divisa in tre parti: l'una di cronisti generali, l'altra di cronisti anteriori alla Monarchia, la terza di cronisti e storici particolari da Ruggiero in poi. "La terza parte della Raccolta dalla quale ha cominciamento la pubblicazione comprenderà quegli scrittori che sincroni sono denomimati e questi verranno ordinatamente distribuiti in cinque periodi che sono il normanno, lo svevo, l'angioino, l'aragonese, il viceregnale facendo punto allo stabilimento della borbonica dinastia". Dopo la pubblicazione nel 1845 del primo volume che comprendeva i Normanni l'opera monumentale intrapresa dal Del Re venne interrotta a causa delle vicende politiche e il suo forzato esilio. "La pubblicazione fu ripresa dopo vent'anni ed un secondo volume dedicato ai Cronisti e gli Scrittori Svevi fu apparecchiato e condotto quasi al termine. Gli altri volumi sarebbero seguiti di mano in mano confidando l'editore che niuna sciagura potesse oramai attraversare il suo disegno. Fallaci speranze, poichè nel 1864 un repentino malore lo trasse a morte in Torino". Il secondo volume fu pubblicato per cura dei congiunti. Opera rara. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Travelling writing case belonging to Ernst August, Crown Prince of Hanover

      [London : Fitzmaurice West, circa 1845]. Portable writing case, 380 x 250 x 155 mm, in black morocco; hinged lid with collapsible gilt bronze carry handle; blind tooled decoration in the form of fleurs-de-lis and gilt stamped monogram with the German Gothic initialE surmounted by a royal coronet; front side with working Bramah lock, the steel key still attached to the carry handle with the original black ribbon; the lock is engraved 'F. West. Manufacturer to Her Majesty, Prince Albert and Royal Family. No. 1 St. James's Street'; the leather fitted interior, in matching black morocco, is original and virtually complete; it contains a removable compartmentalised tray with a Berry's Patent glass inkwell housed in a black morocco box with gilt bronze handle and working locking mechanism, stamped in gilt 'INK', and a Berry's Patent match safe, stamped in gilt 'LIGHT', containing its original flint and matches; an array of writing-related instruments including a mother of pearl pen, letter opener and ruler, with their original black morocco holder (one instrument is lacking); a dozen unused copper nibs; stationery items, including approximately 100 embossed envelopes and writing paper; two unused octavo size notebooks (a ledger book and diary), bound in limp black morocco, all edges gilt, spines stamped in gilt 'CASH' and 'JOURNAL', respectively; a black morocco portfolio for blotting paper; and three examples of the engraved business card of 'F. West, Cutler & Dressing Case Manufacturer, 1 St. James's Street, London. Successor to the late G. Palmer. By appointment to Her Majesty and H.R.H. Prince Albert'. Contained in the bottom of the box are a number of items auxiliary to the original contents; these include the young Ernst August's manuscript titled 'Guelphen Calender', a calendar of important dates in the history of the House of Guelph (square octavo, all edges gilt, 64 pages), in a presentation binding by Meyer, binder to the royal House of Hanover, gilt stamped monogram to front with the German Gothic initialsEA surmounted by a coronet, dated on the first page 21 September 1858, and with all entries relating to the young Prince's immediate family in red ink (the other entries in black throughout); a worn coin of Friedrich Augustus I, Elector of Saxony and king of Poland (1697-1704; 1709-1733); a calligraphic writing exercise listing the full official titles of the Prince's father, Georg V of Hanover (1819-1878); a juvenile pencil sketch depicting a royal scene; a writing exercise with important dates in the history of the House of Hanover in the first part of the nineteenth century; the young Prince's handwritten timetable for his daily instruction in French; a handwritten note on the Lords of Adenoys, the Prince's ancestors; and a manuscript letter of introduction, dated 20 September 1821, for Augustus Lutyens, grandson of General Waggenheim, written in London by M. Kennedy and addressed to his friend Admiral Sir Edmund Nagle in Hanover (Nagle was a trusted courtier of George IV of Great Britain and Ireland; while acting as emissary in Hanover in 1821, Nagle presumably passed this letter of introduction for Lutyens on to a member of the Hanoverian court; the letter found its final resting place in this royal writing case). Ernst August (Ernest Augustus), Crown Prince of Hanover, 3rd Duke of Cumberland and Teviotdale (1845-1923), was the eldest child and only son of the last king of Hanover, Georg V (1819-1878), and his wife Marie of Saxe-Altenburg. His great-grandfather was George III, king of Great Britain and Ireland. This travelling writing box, made around 1845 by the London maker Fitzmaurice West, would almost certainly have been a gift to the young prince from one of his British royal relatives (Ernst August's father, Georg V, was the cousin of Queen Victoria, the last Hanoverian monarch of Great Britain). According to the British Museum, 'Fitzmaurice West, cutlers and dressing case manufacturers to the Royal Family, succeeded G. Palmer at 1 St James's Street in 1844.' However, The Post Office London Directory (1843) records that 'West, late G. Palmer' was already at 1 St. James's Street. In any event, the fact that the business cards placed in the travelling case by its maker still contain the phrase 'Successor to the late G. Palmer' strongly suggest a date of manufacture of around 1845. The case and its contents appear to have been hardly touched, at least until after 1858, at which time the case also became a repository for the prince's monogrammed House of Guelph calendar and several other miscellaneous manuscripts and objects. Ernst August was deprived of the throne of Hanover upon its annexation by Prussia in 1866. He married Princess Thyra of Denmark in 1878. The last Hanoverian prince to hold a British royal title and the Order of the Garter, his descendants are in the line of succession to the British throne. Although he was the senior male-line great-grandson of George III, the Duke of Cumberland was deprived of his British peerages and honours for having sided with Germany in World War I. Provenance: Sotheby's,Property from the Royal House of Hanover, Munich, October 5 - 15, 2005; Martyn Cook, Sydney; Australian private collection.

        Le Marchand d'Images [The Printseller]

      Lemercier, Paris 1845 - Lithograph by Jacot after a painting by Guillemin. Printed on wove paper with thick wove backing for support. Very good condition apart from some light soiling, mild rippling and a few minor foxing marks in the margins. This charming print represents a print seller attempting to sell his wares to a middle-class couple in a domestic interior. Most likely having spotted the only print in the sparsely furnished room, a faded religious subject hung over the armoire, the vendor selects a small image of the Madonna and Child from his portfolio, which he thinks might interest his potential clients. During the nineteenth century, prints were extremely popular among members of the middle-class. They were an inexpensive and consequently affordable way for people to own reproductions of works of art. Lithographs, which were invented in the late eighteenth-century, were particularly popular. Produced through a relatively easy process, they were the ideal medium through which images could be widely disseminated. Lemercier was one of the most prominent printers and publishers of lithographs in nineteenth-century Paris.

      Rom, Wien u. Oriolo, 1845-1852. Zus. 33 S., 8° bis 4°. Kardinal Lodovico Altieri „wurde 1836 zum Titularerzbischof von Ephesus ernannt, erhielt er von Papst Gregor XVI. am 17. Juli 1836 die Bischofsweihe. Altieri war von 1836 bis 1845 Nuntius in Wien. Er wurde in pectore von Papst Gregor XVI. am 14. Dezember 1840 zum Kardinal ernannt, was nach seinem Rücktritt als Nuntius am 21. April 1845 publiziert wurde. Er wurde Kardinaldiakon von Santa Maria in Portico. 1845 wurde pro hac vice zum Kardinalpriester seiner Titeldiakonie erhoben. Danach wurde er Mitglied der römischen Kurie, zunächst Sektretär, seit 5. September 1861 Präfekt der Indexkongregation. Am 17. Dezember 1860 wurde er Kardinalbischof des suburbikarischen Bistums Albano. Er nahm am Konklave von 1846 teil, das Kardinal Giovanni Maria Mastai-Ferretti zum Papst wählte. Pius der IX. ernannte ihn am 8. März 1863 zum Erzpriester der Basilica di San Giovanni in Laterano“ (Wikipeadia). - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius\' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr.

      Zusammen 5 SS. 8vo. Beide Briefe an einen Herrn Oppenheim: "'Grafensteiner Äpfel zu kaufen, davon kann in Braunschweig dies Jahr gar keine Rede sein'!!! So sehr man die Läden und die Apfelhöker schüttelt, es will um's Verrecken kein Grafensteiner mehr purzeln! Zu keinem Preise sind Grafensteiner Aepfel dort zu haben. Darum kosten auch die wenigen, welche ich Ihnen hier sende, gar nichts [...]. Eine drückende Bedingung jedoch sehe ich mich gemüßigt, zu stellen, nämlich: ‚Daß unser Freund und Ihr Hausknochen Becker die Hälfte davon zu eigner Nutznießung bekommt'. Schlussbemerkung: Eben fällt mir ein, daß auch noch einige Birnen dabei liegen [...]" (Eigenh. Brief mit U., 4 SS.). "Der gehorsamst Gefertigte wird mit großem Appetite erscheinen. Derselbe würde schon längst einen schwachen Versuch gemacht haben, Sie Abends in Whist zu vermöbeln, wenn er nicht ein gar so fleißiger Kopf wäre u Abends Transparent malen müsste [...]" (Eigenh. Brief mit U., 1 S.). - Henneberg studierte 1845-48 Jura in Göttingen und Heidelberg, war kurzzeitig am Stadtgericht Braunschweig tätig und wandte sich seit 1850 der Malerei zu. Er verbrachte ein Jahr an der Akademie in Antwerpen und war danach bis 1861 in Paris ansässig. Anschließend bereiste er Italien und ließ sich in Rom nieder, bevor er 1863 nach Deutschland zurückkehrte. Zunächst in München wohnhaft, wechselte er 1866 nach Berlin und ging 1873 wieder nach Rom. 1875 kehrte er nach Braunschweig zurück, wo er ein Jahr später starb.

      Frankfurt am Main, 7. Januar 1845. - 1 S. Gr.-4to. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: „Durch eine fatale Saumseligkeit und Nachlässigkeit desjenigen Herrn, dem die Besorgung Ihres Werkes hier an mich übertragen war, bekam ich erst vor wenigen Augenblicke[n] Ihre Ouverture eingehändigt, oder holte sie vielmehr selbst dort ab, da ich dieser Tage ganz zufällig erfuhr, daß derselbe schon lange Zeit etwas an mich abzugeben habe [.] Schade, daß das Uebersandte nicht 8–14 Tage früher abgegeben wurde, sonst hätte ich sogleich den Vorschlag gemacht, Ihre Ouverture in unserem nächsten Vereinsconcert zu machen, allein die Wahl ist leider schon getroffen, u. eine Abänderung nicht mehr möglich.

        Margherita Pusterla, racconto di

      Firenze: Felice le Monnier, 1845. [2], 516, [2] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Full contemporary vellum, gilt spine with red leather label. With the engraved bookplate of Edith [Story] Peruzzi de' Medici on the front pastedown. Fine copy, in a quarter brown morocco slipcase with chemise. [2], 516, [2] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Inscribed by Elizabeth Barrett Browning to Edith Story. Inscribed on the front free endpaper: "Edith Marion Story, from her affectionate friend, Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Rome - Dec 26 - 59." Edith Story (1844-1907) was the daughter and youngest child of the expatriate American sculptor, lawyer and author, William Wetmore Story, who was the subject of a 1903 biography by Henry James entitled WILLIAM WETMORE STORY AND HIS FRIENDS. Among the closest of those friends were the Brownings. Elizabeth, in particular, was especially grateful to 15-year-old Edith for the generosity and kindness she showed the Brownings' son, Pen, barely 10 years old at the time his mother gave this book to her. Edith later married Simone de Peruzzi de' Medici, and became a writer. OCLC 2673701

        Journal of Researches into the Natural History and Geology of the Countries Visited During the Voyage of HMS Beagle Round the World

      London: John Murray, 1845. 2nd Edition 1st Printing. Three-quarters leather. Very Good/No Jacket. 17 x 13 cms (7" x 5"). PUBLISHING DETAILS: The very rare second edition of Darwin's 'first literary child', published by John Murray of London in 1845. (I can find no first editions and no other 1845 second editions for sale online.) 519 pages. Size: 17 x 13 cms (7" x 5"). Weight: 530g (1.2 pounds.) CONDITION: I would rate this as very good commensurate with its age. It is bound in three-quarters leather over red combed pattern boards, with 5 raised bands and gilt titling to the spine. The covers are clean and sound, having been sensitively restored. The binding is tight and secure throughout. The text and woodcuts are clean, bright and free from foxing. There is light foxing to the endpapers and a label of a previous owner - John Fielden - affixed to the front pastedown. All in all, a most attractive copy of a much sought-after second edition. THE BOOK: From Darwin Online: Darwin's Journal of researches, now known as Voyage of the Beagle, was his first book. As Darwin later recalled in his autobiography 'The voyage of the Beagle has been by far the most important event in my life and has determined my whole career'. He went on to write: As far as I can judge of myself I worked to the utmost during the voyage from the mere pleasure of investigation, and from my strong desire to add a few facts to the great mass of facts in natural science. But I was also ambitious to take a fair place among scientific men...... The success of this my first literary child always tickles my vanity more than that of any of my other books.' The second and only other edition was first published in 1845 in John Murray's Colonial and Home Library; Darwin sold the copyright for £150. The text was extensively revised and, according to Lady Barlow, reduced from about 224,000 words to 213,000. The title changes to Natural history and geology; the maps are omitted, to Darwin's regret, not to return until 1890; but the number of woodcuts is increased. It is a miserable piece of printing in small type with mean margins, but then the series was a cheap one. (A bit harsh, I feel. The margins are indeed tight but otherwise it presents very well.)
