        An original design for porcelain

      [Paris, 1845. Pen, ink, and watercolour. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling, mild creasing, and a 1 1/4" tear at the far right edge of the image. 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." ( Grove Dictionary of Art ).

        Die im Bernstein befindlichen organischen Reste der Vorwelt gesammelt, in Verbindung mit Mehreren bearbeitet und herausgegeben. 2 Bände (zu je 2 Abteilungen) in 3 Heften.

      Berlin, Nicolai, 1845-56. - Folio (40-41.5 : 28-29.5 cm). Mit zusammen 32 meist lithographierten Tafeln. Einzige Ausgabe. Das früheste auf Vollständigkeit angelegte Verzeichnis pflanzlicher und tierischer Einschlüsse im baltischen Bernstein. Das gewaltige Vorhaben mit zahlreichen Erstbeschreibungen wurde um 1830 durch den Danziger Arzt Georg Carl Berendt (1790-1850) initiiert. Er stützte sich zunächst auf seine eigene Sammlung von über 4000 Stücken Bernstein, die im Berliner Naturkundemuseum erhalten ist. Er benutzte ferner die Sammlungen Aycke und Menge sowie Leihgaben aus Dresden und St. Petersburg. Vor allem aber gelang es ihm, auswärtige Spezialisten zur Bestimmung der Pflanzen und der Gliederfüßer (Band I) sowie der Neu- und Netzflügler (II) zu gewinnen. Bis zu seinem Tod 1850 fand Berendt keine Mitarbeiter für die Ordnungen der Schmetterlinge, Hautflügler und Käfer, die das Werk abschließen sollten. Daß es wenigstens im vorliegenden Umfang erscheinen konnte, ist zwei posthumen Herausgebern zu verdanken. Im Einzelnen: I/1: Berendt & Heinrich Robert Goeppert. Pflanzenreste. 1845. 4 Bl., IV, 125 S., 7 Tafeln mit etwas Kolorit. - Beigeheftet ein gedruckter Werbezettel Berendts für wissenschaftlich geordnete Bernsteinsammlungen von je 200 Stücken aus seinem Doublettenbestand. - I/2: Berendt & Carl Ludwig Koch. Crustaceen, Myriapoden, Arachniden und Apteren. 1854. 2 Bl., IV, 124 S., 17 Tafeln. - Nach dem Tod beider Bearbeiter ergänzt und herausgegeben von Franz Anton Menge. - II/1: Berendt & Ernst Friedrich Germar. Hemipteren und Orthopteren. 1856. 3 Bl., 40 S., 4 Tafeln. - Nach dem Tod der Bearbeiter abgeschlossen und herausgegeben von Hermann August Hagen aus Königsberg, ab 1867 in Harvard, 1870 erster entomologischer Professor der USA. Seine Bernsteine begründeten die große Inklusensammlung von Harvard. - II/2: Hagen & François-Jules Pictet. Neuropteren. 1856. 1 Bl., S. 41-125, 4 Tafeln. - Von Hagen aus dem Französischen übersetzt und stark erweitert. - Nissen, ZBI, no. 319; Stafleu & Cowan, TL-2, no. 2073. - Rücken von Heft 1 alt überklebt, an Heft 3 teils abgeblättert, Rückumschlag dort mit unterlegtem Ausriß. Einige Eckknicke zu Beginn und Ende der Hefte. Etwas gebräunt und stockfleckig, insgesamt sauberes, breitrandiges Exemplar. [Attributes: Soft 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.

        Letter in French (with translation), signed 'M[aréch]al Duc de Dalmatie' as Minister of War to M. Bequet, Civil Commissary at Cherchel, Algeria, (Nicolas Jean de Dieu, 1769-1851, Napoleon I's Marshal, Duke of Dalmatia)

      1845 - concerning a collection at Cherchel "of objects of art and archaeology worthy, in your opinion, of a place in the Louvre Museum, where, in accordance with the King's wishes, the monuments collected in Algeria by Captain Delamare, and the mosaic of Koudiat-ati, have just been assembled", telling him that he "has just given orders for a detailed catalogue . together with drawings of the principal items . this information . will be forwarded to the Algerian Academic Commission, in the light of whose proposals I will make my decision", 2 sides 4to., with conjugate blank, Soult-berg, near St. Amans-la-bastide (Tarn), 17th August Soult was commander-in-chief of the camp of Boulogne in 1803, preparing for the invasion of England, and one of the first Marshals of France in 1804. He is best known for the campaigns in the Peninsula against Wellington. On the first abdication of Napoleon, 11th April 1814, he declared himself a Royalist, and was Minister of War from December 1814 to March 1815. He subsequently declared for Napoleon again, being chief-of-staff at Waterloo, and, after a brief exile, for each change of government till his death during the Second Republic. He was twice Minister of War for Louis Philippe, 1830-1834 and again 1840-1845 in Guizot's minstry. The French occupied Cherchel, ancient Caesarea, in 1840, with its wealth of objects dating back to Phoenician and Egyptian times. Portable objects were removed to museums, including some of the finest statues found in Africa. However in the early days of the occupation, dressed stone, such as the theatre and hippodrome, was ruthlessly quarried for barracks and a new church. The Mosque of the Hundred Columns survived as a military hospital. Soult was no stranger to objets d'art, having 'acquired' old masters during his time in Spain, which fetched nearly 1½ million francs after his death.

        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.)

It is attached to a larger piece of paper and probably taken from an album. The larger piece has been inscribed by a member of Laplace's signature and reads that this is an adage by the author of "Mecanique Celeste", signed and dated 20th July 1845. Laplace's handwriting is on a smaller piece of paper, folded once, with a few lines of calculus on the inside fold. This smaller sheet has also been inscribed in a later hand that is it given to a Miss Flower. The larger sheet measures 28.5 × 23cm, the smaller, folded sheet measures 20.5 × 12.5cm. Pierre-Simon Laplace (1749-1827) was a French mathematician and astronomer, born in Beaumont-en-Auge, Normandy, the son of a farmer. He studied at Caen, went to Paris and became professor at the Ecole Militaire where he gained fame by his researches on the inequalities in the motion of Jupiter and Saturn, and the theories of the satellites of Jupiter. In 1799, he entered the Senate, becoming its vice-president in 1803, andminister for the interior for six weeks, after which he was replaced because of an incapacty for administration. He was created marquis by Louis XVIII in 1817. His astronomical work culminated in the publication of the five monumental volumes of Mecanique celeste (1799?1825), the greatest work on celestial mechanics since Newton's Principia. His Systeme du Monde (1796) is a non-mathematical exposition, of masterly clarity, of all his astronomical theories. In his study of the gravitational attraction of spheroids he formulated the fundamental differential equation in physics which bears his name. He also made important contributions to the theory of probability. Condition: As mentioned this is a sheet that has been removed from a book and as such, one side is slightly roughed, but the paper itself is in good order. The smaller, older paper with Laplace's handwriting on is in good condition, but tanned and with a few small creases. There is one small segment missing to the lower corner. The handwriting, in brown ink, is clear and crisp. A wonderful and scarce item.. Signed. Manuscript. Good Plus.

        MAX IN BAYERNÕS MIDDLE EAST TRAVEL MAP: DIE UEBERGANGSL€NDER VON ASIEN UND AFRIKA: BEGREIFEND: ARABIEN NEBST MESOPOTAMIEN UND SYRIEN UND DAS NILGEBIET NACH DEN REISEWERKEN HERZOGS MAXIMILIAN IN BAYERN NACH DEN REISEWERKENÉ HERZOGS MAXIMILIAN IN BAYERN

      Munich: C Wenng Geograph 1845 - Lithograph with original outline colour (Very Good, full margins, some light spots of discolouration), 44 x 50 cm, (17 x 19 inches). An extremely rare separately-issued map of Egypt, the Levant and Arabia, especially prepared by the eminent intellectual Gotthilf Heinrich von Schubert to commemorate Duke Max of BavariaÕs epic adventures in Egypt, Palestine and Lebanon. This extremely rare separately-issued map of the Middle East was made as a private commission by a group of Munich grandees led by Gotthilf Heinrich von Schubert, a prominent intellectual, especially to commemorate Duke Max in BayernÕs 1838 excursion to Egypt, Palestine and Lebanon. The Duke was a much-beloved, larger-than-life figure whose eccentric, yet kind persona and exciting adventures captured the imagination of both Bavarians and those beyond. In 1838, he led a party on a trip of cultural exploration to Egypt, Palestine and Lebanon, whereupon he gained extraordinary experiences, returning to Munich with stunning antiquities. Curiously, his official 1839 account of his trip was not illustrated by a map, so in 1845, Schubert et al. stepped in to make up for this oversight, producing the present fine work. Geographically, the map is highly accurate, featuring an especially meticulous labeling of regions and sites, employing transliterations of Arabic names (the table below the title also translates some Arabic geographical terms into German). The territories still controlled by the Ottoman Empire are coloured pink, while lands under the control of the Khedivate of Egypt (an autonomous vassal of the Ottomans which ruled from 1805) is coloured yellow. The itinerary of the Duke Max in BayernÕs 1838 trip to Egypt and the Levant is shown, by way of the tracks of his ship sailing in the Mediterranean and the names of the places he visited underlined by orange manuscript lines. It shows that the Duke sailed from Europe into Alexandria, Egypt, and then proceeded up the Nile to Cairo and the Pyramids of Giza, and from there stopping at numerous places en route to ÔThebenÕ (Thebes), reaching as far south as ÔWaddi HalfaÕ (Wadi Halfa), Nubia (Sudan). From there his party descended the Nile before entering Palestine (Israel), where they visited numerous locations, notably Jerusalem, ÔJafaÕ (Jaffa) and ÔAkkuÕ (Acre). From there, they travelled to Lebanon, reaching as far north as Beirut, before sailing back to Alexandria, before heading back to Europe. Duke Max in Bayern - Duke Maximilian Joseph in Bavaria (1808 Ð 1888), popularly known as ÒMax in Bayern,Ó was a member of the junior branch of the House of Wittelsbach. He is perhaps best known as the father of Empress Elizabeth of Austria, who was affectionately known as ÒSisiÓ. He was also an adventurer, an antiquarian, and perhaps the eraÕs foremost promoter of Bavarian folk music, endearing him to the public. He is also known for establishing and tastefully improving several magnificent residences in Bavaria. In 1838, the Duke led a party on an expedition of antiquarian and cultural discovery to Egypt and the Holy Land. While the region had long had a legendary place in Western culture, recently revived, such an enterprise was still considered an ambitious, exotic and dangerous endeavour. Notable aspects of the trip included the occasion when Max and his companions climbed the Great Pyramid of Gaza and proceeded to yodel in true Alpine style! Max also bought several child slaves from the Cairo market, and promptly gave them their freedom. He proved to have exquisite taste in antiquities, purchasing several mummies, statues and architectural fragments, including pieces from the famous Temple of Dendur (objects which were taken back to Bavaria). Later, in Jerusalem, Max paid for the restoration of the Church of the Flagellation on the Via Dolorosa. Shortly upon his return to Bavaria, Max wrote an entertaining account of his trip, Wanderung nach dem Orient im Jahre 1838 (Munich: Georg Franz, 1839). It is considered a clas

        An original design for a porcelain plate

      [Paris, 1845. Pen, ink, and watercolour. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling and mild creasing. There is an original central crease. 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." (Grove Dictionary of Art).

      Philadelphia: Lea and Blanchard, 1845. The Haskell F. Norman copy, presentation copy inscribed by the translator, of the first the first modern textbook of psychiatry. Norman 727. "Esquirol's book, compiled from papers and articles published over the past two decades, summarized the experience gained over a lifetime of observation and treatment of mental illness, in which he closely followed the humanitarian principles of his teacher, Philippe Pinel. Esquirol was one of the first to apply statistical methods to clinical studies of insanity. He recognized the uselessness of the traditional terminology for mental illnesses, and created new descriptions and classifications based upon his own observations. He was the first to distinguish between hallucinations and illusions, and between dementia and idiocy.; he also provised the classic description of paresis, coined the term 'monomania' (a concept foreshadowing the modern view of schizophrenia) and distinguished certain depressive states ('lypemanias') from other psychoses. Along with Pinel, Esquirol is regarded as the founder of the French school of psychiatry; his Maladies mentales [1838] was a basic psychiatric text for over half a century."
