The plates and pages are foxed, and there are sporadic tidemarks of varying sizes on the pages as well. 22 single-sided plates (views, botanical, fossils) and 3 maps (missing the large folding map by Charles Preuss, and the map at p. 247). John Fremont's expeditions of 1842 and 1843-44 were the most spectacular reconnaissance of the American West since Lewis and Clark. Performed under the auspices of the Army Bureau of Topographical Engineers, the expedition's published reports and maps brought a factor of dependability and trustworthiness that would aid American settlement of the West. Fremont's report was the most detailed observations of the western territories at the time. The country covered by the report was previously terra incognito--Brigham Young is said to have used both the report as a guide in bringing the Mormon people West. Utah was then part of Mexico and would first become Deseret and then Utah territory. One of the seminal works for any western or Utah collector. Howes F-372(Senate Issue). Wagner/Camp 115.2

        Original watercolor signed

      1845. Signed. CRUIKSHANK, George. Original watercolor signed. No place, no date. Glazed watercolor on card, measuring 5 by 4-1/4 inches; handsomely framed, entire piece measures 11-1/2 by 10-1/2 inches. $3800.Wonderful original watercolor of haphazardly stacked books by George Cruikshank, signed by him at the bottom of the image, handsomely framed.The striking piece is a particularly accomplished example of Cruikshank's work as a miniaturist. Here, he has painted a detail from a library or book shop and shown books carelessly stacked, including some falling open to present their contents. Cruikshank's background as an illustrator is clear in the page edges, the carefully drawn portrait inside one book, and each painstakingly rendered spine. Serious Cruikshank pieces are rare and, for the collector, a watercolor such as this is the crowning glory of a collection. Fine condition.

        The Works of that Learned and Judicious Divine. With an Account of His Life and Death by Isaac Walton. Arranged by the Rev. John Keble. [3 Vols.]

      At the University Press, Oxford 1845 - Three volumes. Pp. [4], cxiii, 488; [ii], 610; [ii], 755. Folding genealogy and facsimile MS plates. Contemporary crimson calf bordered by double gilt fillets, elaborately gilt-panelled spine between raised bands, black morocco labels, marbled endpapers and edges. Only light wear to bindings, bookplate on pastedown of first volume, but overall an elegantly bound set in fine condition. The Third Edition of John Keble's [1792-1866] arrangement of Hooker's works, first published in 1836. It remains the standard version to this day. In addition to his great treatise, "Of the Laws of Ecclesiastical Polity", this edition contains seven of Hooker's sermons as well as several occasional pieces. Of the eight books of the "Laws of Ecclesi astical Polity", only five appeared in Hooker's lifetime, the first four in 1594, and the fifth in 1597. The sixth and eighth books were published posthumously in 1648, and the seventh finally in 1662. The authenticity of the last three books, compiled from Hooker's manuscript notes, has been much disputed. What is not in dispute is the enormous influence of his work on subsequent religious and philosophical thought. His defense of the Elizabethan Settlement of 1559 led him to elaborate a theory of "natural law" as the expression of God's supreme reason and the foundation of all ecclesiastical and civil polity. He thus justified the laws and structures of the English Church, including royal supremacy, against both the Puritan insistence on the absoluteness of Scripture, and the Roman Catholic appeal to the immutability of tradition. Hooker's political theories had implications far beyond church polity. In developing an essentially contractual theory of government, he anticipated the theories of later thinkers, especially Locke and Rousseau. Size: Octavo [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Pappband der Zeit. *Die Württembergische Abgeordnetenkammer beschäftigte sich im Jahr 1845 so viel mit den neuen bzw. geplanten Eisenbahnlinien, daß sie dazu in den gedruckten Verhandlungsprotokollen einen eigenen umfangreichen Beilagenband herausgab, in dem alle Vorträge, Berichte etc. zur Eisenbahn im Jahr 1845 gesammelt sind. - Enthält Kostenaufstellungen, Gutachten, Kommissionsberichte etc. über Staats- und Privatbahnen im Königreich Württemberg sowie zu einzelnen Linien wie Ludwigsburg-Esslingen (umfangreich), Südbahn von Ulm nach Friedrichshafen, Ostbahn durch Fils- und Remstal, Stuttgart-Aalen u.a.

        Ein unverwüstlich Bilderbuch, geziert mit manchem Fibelspruch!

      Darmstadt: Bauerkeller's Prägeanstalt, (c. 1845). Oblong octavo. 18ff. of relief plates depicting animals and plants within a floral frame, all in white against a blue background, with text above and below printed letterpress. Unusual and apparently unrecorded children's picture book illustrated with relief prints that resemble Wedgewood porcelain. The eighteen plates depict animals or plants framed by a decorative border, with the identification printed above the image in three languages (German, French, and English). Below each image is a quatrain in German. The printers, Georg Michael Bauerkeller and his stepbrother Georg Leonhart, invented a printing process for relief printing of maps, which they called "Geomontographie." The process involved a combination of letterpress and lithographic printing with blindstamping and papier-mâché, and they published a number of maps and city plans in the 1840s. One children's book with a Bauerkeller imprint is recorded in OCLC, but this title is unrecorded. Front free endpaper excised, shelfmark to top of first plate, not affecting image.

        Ein unverwüstlich Bilderbuch, geziert mit manchem Fibelspruch!

      Darmstadt: Bauerkeller's Prägeanstalt, 1845. Oblong octavo. 18ff. of relief plates depicting animals and plants within a floral frame, all in white against a blue background, with text above and below printed letterpress. Unusual and apparently unrecorded children's picture book illustrated with relief prints that resemble Wedgewood porcelain. The eighteen plates depict animals or plants framed by a decorative border, with the identification printed above the image in three languages (German, French, and English). Below each image is a quatrain in German. The printers, Georg Michael Bauerkeller and his stepbrother Georg Leonhart, invented a printing process for relief printing of maps, which they called "Geomontographie." The process involved a combination of letterpress and lithographic printing with blindstamping and papier-mâché, and they published a number of maps and city plans in the 1840s. One children's book with a Bauerkeller imprint is recorded in OCLC, but this title is unrecorded. Front free endpaper excised, shelfmark to top of first plate, not affecting image. Otherwise, internally clean and bright in the publisher's cloth-backed printed boards, which are toned, with rubbed extremities and corners. Overall, very good.

        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. 2000 gr. [Attributes: First Edition]
