      New York and London: Wiley and Putnam, and John Murray, 1846. 2 vols., sm. 8vo, xv, 166, (1, ads); (4), 167-325, (2, ads). With a frontispiece map to part one. Original printed wrappers, both parts lacking the lower wrapper. Wear, waterstain to lower margin of part one. In a cloth box. First American edition of Melville?s first book. See BAL 136563 (p. 156 col. 2, ?paper wrapper? issue) which conforms exactly with this copy. Even though John Wiley had hastily censored some of the more sexual passages of Melville?s manuscript, the American edition was heavily criticized by the Presbyterian New York Evangelist for its portrayal of Protestant missionaries in the Pacific and Melville was compelled by Wiley to edit the text heavily for a new ?Revised Edition?. The various scandals boosted sales of the book and effectively launched Melville?s literary career.

        Brustbild einer sitzenden Frau mit hochgestecktem Haar nach links.

      - Bleistift, auf bräunlichem Velin, rechts unten signiert, bezeichnet und datiert „E. Crola Ilsenburg 1846.". 17,3:7,7 cm, auf Untersatz montiert. Mit Lichtrand rundum. Elise Crola, Tochter eines Bankiers, wuchs in einem künstlerisch-musisch orientierten Elternhaus auf. Hier verkehrten neben Wissenschaftlern auch Maler und Bildhauer wie W. von Schadow (1788-1862), Chr.D. Rauch (1777-1857), C.J. Begas (1794-1854), C.W. Wach (1787-1845) und ihr Vetter E.J.F. Bendemann (1811-1889), der spätere Direktor der Dresdner Gemäldegalerie. Ihre Eltern förderten die künstlerische Begabung ihrer Tochter – auch Schadow, der sie in jungen Jahre porträtiert hatte („Die Poesie"), empfahl ihren Eltern, das Talent ihrer Tochter zu fördern. So erhielt sie früh Zeichenunterricht durch den Porträt- und Miniaturmaler J.F. Zimmermann (tätig 1796-1838). Im Alter von 18 Jahren heiratete sie den vierzehn Jahre älteren Baron K.H.L. von Weiher; die kinderlose Ehe wurde 1836 auf Drängen ihrer Familie und gegen ihren Willen geschieden. Kurz darauf lernte sie in Berlin den Maler Georg Heinrich Crola (1804-1879) kennen, sie trafen sich wieder in Ilsenburg, wo sie sich bevorzugt aufhielt, und heirateten 1840. Gemeinsam entschied man, in Ilsenburg sesshaft zu werden und erwarb schließlich 1847 ein großes Haus. Obwohl sie fünf Kinder gebar, unternahm sie gemeinsam mit ihrem Mann nicht nur zahlreiche Fahrten nach Berlin, Dresden und auf die Insel Rügen, sondern auch nach Dänemark, Schweden und in die Alpen. Zudem führten sie in Ilsenburg ein reges gesellschaftliches Leben. Zu ihren Künstlerfreunden zählten u.a. P. von Cornelius (1783-1867), L. Richter (1803-1884) und W. von Kügelgen (1802-1867). Elise zeigte zudem ein ausgeprägtes soziales Engagement und wurde zur Wohltäterin der Alten und Armen. Nicht näher zu spezifizierende Beschwerden zwangen sie jedoch zu Reisen, z.B. eine vermutlich anderthalbjährigere Reise gemeinsam mit ihrem Mann 1854 in die Schweiz. Auch zwei längere Aufenthalte in Italien zwecks Erholung sind zu belegen. Ihr künstlerisches Schaffen, sie arbeitete meist mit dem Bleistift, selten in Aquarell, wird von figürlichen Themen, Porträts, Tierdarstellungen, Veduten und Landschaften bestimmt. Daneben betätigte sie sich bildhauerisch (Porträts). Später bemalte sie auch Porzellane und Gebrauchsgegenstände. Im Hüttenmuseum Ilsenburg wurde Ende der 1990er Jahre eine Crola-Stube eingerichtet.

        Korfu, Ansicht der Stadt und Fischer im Vordergrund.

      - Aquarell, mit schwarzer Tuschlinie umrandet, auf Velin. 10,8:17,6 cm. Bekannt war Lear als Schriftsteller, insbesondere von Limericks, eine literarische Form, die durch ihn Verbreitung fand. Zunächst arbeitete er als Illustrator, 1846 veröffentlichte er „Book of Nonsense", eine Sammlung von Limericks, was ihm großen Erfolg einbrachte. Weitere Veröffentlichungen folgten, die bekannteste war das Kinderbuch „The Owl an the Pussycat". Trotz einer schon seit Kindheit an bestehenden Krankheit – Epilepsie – und schlechten Gesundheit ging er 1838 nach Rom, wo er mit Unterbrechungen 8 Jahre leben sollte. Weitere Reisen folgten auf den Balkan, in die Schweiz, mehrere Reisen nach Griechenland und 1872/1874 nach Indien. Darüber hinaus gab er Zeichenunterricht, seine wohl prominenteste Schülerin war Königin Victoria. Lear reiste wiederholt nach Griechenland. 1847 ist der erste Aufenthalt auf Korfu zu belegen, weitere Reisen nach Griechenland erfolgten 1855-1857, 1863 und 1864.

      Place d'Orleans 2, Rue St Lazare 34[?], 21. X. 1846.. 1 S. 8vo.. An den Pianisten Johann Peter Pixis (1788-1874): "Nous serons charmes de vous voir chez nous Jeudi prochain a 6 moins un quart, avec votre neveu.

Anschließend lebte er bis 1823 in London und kehrte dann nach Paris zurück, wo er später Teilhaber der Klavierfabrik Pleyel wurde.

        Narrative of a Four Month?s Residence among the Natives of a Valley of the Marquesas Islands; Or, a Peep at Polynesian Life

      8vo. London: John Murray, 1846. 8vo, xvi, (2, map), 285, 16 pp. Original blindstamped red cloth with gilt-lettered backstrip, bookplate, boards a little bumped and soiled, backstrip and joints repaired, a very good copy. First edition of Melville?s first book, first issue in cloth, binder?s variant A with ?Pomarea? p. 19, line 1, and terminal catalogue dated March 1847. Melville?s embellished account of his own experience as ship?s deserter among the Typees of Marquesas Islands, whom he portrayed as sexually liberated cannibals to popular success and not a little scandal. After the Harper Brothers refused the manuscript, thinking it a hoax, Melville?s brother in London succeeded in selling it to John Murray, and later, through the intervention of Washington Irving, to G. P. Putnam for American publication by Wiley & Putnam. The book appeared in London in February 1846 in wrappers and in cloth as part of Murray?s Home and Colonial Library series. It appeared in New York in March, after hasty some censoring of some of the sexual passages by John Wiley, as Typee: A Peep at Polynesian Life. BAL 13652.

        ROUTE ACROSS THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS, WITH A DESCRIPTION OF OREGON AND CALIFORNIA; THEIR GEOGRAPHICAL FEATURES, THEIR RESOURCES, SOIL, CLIMATE, PRODUCTIONS

      Lafayette, In.: John B. Semans, Printer, 1846.. 152pp. Original plain brown cloth. Some wear to the cloth, with minor edge wear. Two small modern bookplates on the front pastedown, hinges reinforced. Minor foxing and spotting, pale dampstain through some text. Very good. In a green half morocco clamshell case. One of the earliest and rarest overland guide books to the Oregon Trail, chronologically the second such guide, preceded only by the Hastings guide of 1845. The authors went overland to Oregon in 1843. Winter went to California the following year, then returned to Indiana, where he arranged to publish this guidebook in time for the 1846 emigrant season. The guide provides a detailed account of the 1843 trip, a long description of Oregon, Winter's route to California, the Bear Flag movement, gold at Santa Barbara, and northern California. The return route from California is also described, and there is a table of distances in the rear. Winter eventually settled in the Napa-Sonoma area. A variant issue of the text, with "River" corrected on p. 26 and signature mark "8" corrected on p. 57, but with the vertical slug present before "Fort" on p. 36. The Jay Snider copy, with his bookplate on the front pastedown, sold as lot 234 at Christie's New York in 2005 for $24,000. A rarity, afforded a "d" by Howes, who calls it "one of the greatest of early overland narratives." A key guide and important work of Western Americana. GRAFF 2221. HOWES J142, "d." SABIN 36260.

The varied content includes weather observations, poetry, and day-to-day commentary: "March 31st 1846 Tuesday: A large shoal of porpoises playing about the bows the mate went out on the dolphin striker to harpoon one but was unsuccessful [.]", "May 11th 1846 Monday: This morning we sighted Coëtivy, it is a low rocky shore sprinkled with Cocoa nut trees etc., before 12 it was out of sight [.]" (includes a panoramic sketch of the coastline). - Lieutenant William Collingwood, a distant cousin of the Admiral, was an R.I.N. surveyor who did much valuable work in Iraq, including the large-scale, though surreptitious, mapping of Baghdad in 1855. During this same expedition, Collingwood also surveyed the Shatt-ul-Arab, the city of Bussorah (also by stealth) and much of the country between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers, and he was undoubtedly one of the most gifted and productive R.I.N. surveyors of his day. - Binding slightly rubbed at extremeties; in good condition altogether.

        Korfu, Ansicht der Stadt und Fischer im Vordergrund.

      . Aquarell, mit schwarzer Tuschlinie umrandet, auf Velin. 10,8:17,6 cm.. Bekannt war Lear als Schriftsteller, insbesondere von Limericks, eine literarische Form, die durch ihn Verbreitung fand. Zunächst arbeitete er als Illustrator, 1846 veröffentlichte er "Book of Nonsense", eine Sammlung von Limericks, was ihm großen Erfolg einbrachte. Weitere Veröffentlichungen folgten, die bekannteste war das Kinderbuch "The Owl an the Pussycat". Trotz einer schon seit Kindheit an bestehenden Krankheit - Epilepsie - und schlechten Gesundheit ging er 1838 nach Rom, wo er mit Unterbrechungen 8 Jahre leben sollte. Weitere Reisen folgten auf den Balkan, in die Schweiz, mehrere Reisen nach Griechenland und 1872/1874 nach Indien. Darüber hinaus gab er Zeichenunterricht, seine wohl prominenteste Schülerin war Königin Victoria. Lear reiste wiederholt nach Griechenland. 1847 ist der erste Aufenthalt auf Korfu zu belegen, weitere Reisen nach Griechenland erfolgten 1855-1857, 1863 und 1864.

        Poe's scathing "Literati of New York City" in Godey's Ladies' Book Vol. 32, No. 1 (January 1846) to Vol. 33, No. 6 (December 1846)

      Philadelphia: Louis A. Godey. Very Good. 1846. Poe's searing six-parter "The Literati of New York" appeared in Godey's May through October issues. The series begins with this observation: "The most 'popular,' the most 'successful,' writers among us are, ninety-nine times out of a hundred, persons of mere address, perseverance, effrontery -- in a word, busy-bodies, toadies, quacks." Then, for six grueling months, Poe went about trashing the reputations of just about every writer of prominence in New York. This series, more than any other single episode in Poe's career, cemented his literary doom and buried his reputation for generations. Then, as if to serve himself dessert, Poe conjured up for the November issue, his chilling 'The Cask of Amontillado,' in which the author seals up his mortal enemy in a vault in his basement." (Richard West). Foxing to periphery throughout. An unusually nicely preserved binding in a still supple half black calf & marbled boards, signed by the binder (Benjamin Cobb) and inscribed to his niece.; 8vo 8" - 9" tall .

J'ai reçu les lettres que vous avez la bonté de m'envoyer.

Tout cela restera gravé dans mon coeur et je saisirai toutes les occasions pour vous prouver que je suis apprécier les hommes de génie et de coeur tels que vous.

In Frankfurt lernte er Mendelssohn kennen, in Berlin Meyerbeer" (MGG III, 48f.). - Am Gegenblatt kl. Randausriss von Siegelöffnung (keine Textberührung); Faltspuren und unbedeutende Braunflecken.

Tall 8vo. Bound in full green morocco, with full red morocco doublures,with central gilrt lozenge, a.e.g., by Bickers. Very fine, one chip to ffep. Proof Copy The First edition of Moore's work, and one that his friend artist Daniel Maclise endeavored to make a truly fine production, inventing decorative borders for all pages in addition to his many illustrations. More was very pleased with the results and spoke of an "Irish Pencil" having lent its aid to an "Irish Pen." By his treatment of illustrations and text as a unit, and the elaboration of detail, Maclise introduced into England the effects achieved by the German illustrators of the 1830s and early 1840s. Widely acknowledged to be Maclise's best book.

      . Feder in Braun, über Bleistift, 1846, auf Bütten mit Wasserzeichen: HAS; verso mit der Signatur der Stiefmutter des Malers (seit 1834), Henriette Feuerbach (1812-1892). 28,5:48 cm. - Mit wenigen, sorgfältig restaurierten kleinen Randläsuren sowie insgesamt nicht ganz frisch.

Katalog: Anselm Feuerbach. Gemälde und Zeichnungen. Karlsruhe, 1976, S. 21.. Während seiner Düsseldorfer Studienzeit entdeckte Feuerbach für sich die Shakespeare'schen Werke. Während seines Sommeraufenthaltes 1846 in Freiburg entstanden zehn Zeichnungen zu Shakespeares "Sturm". Die vorliegende Zeichnung galt lange als verschollen, selbst Feuerbachs Biograph J. Allgeyer, der sie in seiner Monographie einer falschen Szene im Drama zuordnete, war ihr Verbleib unbekannt. Die weiteren 9 Illustrationen dieser Folge befanden sich zuerst in der Sammlung Ehlers und kamen nach deren Verkauf in das Kupferstichkabinett in Dresden, wo sie durch Kriegseinwirkungen verloren gingen. Eine dieser Zeichnungen trug verso den eigenhändigen Vermerk des Künstlers, daß er die zehnte Arbeit dem Hofschuhmachermeister Lüder in Karlsruhe geschenkt habe.

        Holy Land, Syria, Idemea, Arabia, Egypt & Nubia

      1846 - ROBERTS, David.The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt, & Nubia WITH: Egypt & Nubia London: F.G. Moon, 1846-49.Six volumes uniformly bound in four.First edition of one of the greatest lithographic works ever printed, complete with 250 beautiful tinted lithographic plates. Six large folio volumes bound in four, in fine contemporary morocco-gilt.Roberts was already a respected and famous scenic painter and member of the Royal Academy when he began his 11-month journey, 1838-39, through the Holy Land. He departed for Alexandria in August 1838, and spent the rest of the year in Cairo. In February 1839, he set out for the Holy Land, stopping on the way at Suez, Mount Sinai, and Petra. He then visited Gaza and Jerusalem and spent the remaining months of his journey visiting biblical sites. Roberts had permission to enter whichever sacred mosque or monument he desired, a testament to the esteem in which he was held. He produced a wealth of exquisite drawings, later beautifully lithographed by Louis Haghe, the finest 19th-century lithographer. "Roberts’ Holy Land has a world-wide reputation; nothing of a similar character has ever been produced that can bear a comparison with it For centuries Jerusalem had been sketched, painted, photographed and yet when people envision Jerusalem, very often what they envision is Jerusalem painted by David Roberts" (Ran, Facsimile of Roberts’ Holy Land). Roberts’ magnificent plates are justly famous for their vivid rendering of temples, land- and cityscapes, and other sights throughout the Holy Land and Egypt.Abbey Travel 272, 385. Tooley 401; 402.Some plates foxed as usual. Only light wear to beautiful contemporary morocco-gilt bindings. A most handsome and very desirable complete copy. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Supplement to the New South Wales Government Gazette, of Friday, December 4, 1846

      Sydney: W. W. Davies, 1846. Folio, 6 pp. (numbered [1527]-1532); disbound, pierced by early stitching, very good. A rare "Supplement" to the Government Gazette, printing detailed news of the explorations of Sir Thomas Mitchell. These supplements were not always kept with the same rigour as the Gazette proper, and are thus rare survivors.'In December 1845 Mitchell began his fourth expedition north-west from Boree in search for an overland route to Port Essington. By June 1846 he had established a depot on the Maranoa and for nearly four months explored around the headwaters of the Maranoa, Warrego and Belyando Rivers, still hopeful of finding a great river flowing north-west. On 25 September, near Isisford on the Barcoo, which he called the Victoria, when short of supplies and threatened by Aboriginals, he turned back, but only after his observations and his hopes had deluded him that he had at last found his great river to the northward' (ADB).This Supplement prints two substantial letters by Mitchell relating to this expedition. The first is dated from the head of the River Salvator, 9 September 1846. Conditions have been difficult, he writes, and the intense heat has stricken most of his men with opthalmia and killed his kangaroo-dogs. Despite this, they have been very kindly received by the local Aboriginal tribes, who have also greatly assisted in picking their route through the terrain. He and Kennedy have been assiduous in both their descriptions and survey of the land, even remembering to number each of his camps in Roman Numerals as he continued. 'We have had no collision with the Aborigines, although parties of them on different occasions visited my party at the camp during my absence, very significantly declared, brandishing their spears of clubs, that the country was their's, and making signs to my men to quit it and follow me.'The second is date on the River Balonne, 9 November 1846, and Mitchell is delighted to report that his most recent push north-west has resulted in the opening of fine land. He is also pleased to learn that Kennedy's investigations with the local tribes have helped them understand the path of some of the rivers.
