        Am Dorfrand, 1846

      1846. Bleistift auf Papier, unten rechts signiert und datiert: "J. Höger. 1846.", verso bezeichnet: "No 93. Jos. Hoeger. Zeichnung", sowie mit dem Stempel der Sammlung J. A. Ruf, Wien (Lugt 2158), 19,5 x 26,4 cm. Joseph Höger gehörte zusammen mit seinen Studienkameraden Johann Fischbach, Joseph Schwemminger oder Friedrich Loos zum Schülerkreis Joseph Mößmers an der Wiener Akademie der bildenden Künste. 1843 wurde er dort selbst Professor. Eine lange Freundschaft verband ihn mit der Familie Gauermann. Mit den Söhnen des damals schon berühmten Jakob Gauermann verbrachte er schon als Jugendlicher viele Stunden auf Wanderungen durch die Gegend um deren Heimatort Miesenbach. Schließlich heiratete er 1832 auch in die Familie ein. Diese Jugendeinflüsse sind in Joseph Högers Werk immer präsent. Trotz der immer stärker vorpreschenden Freilichtmalerei, wie sie Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller propagierte, hielt er sich an die klassisch komponierte Landschaft. Dies ist allerdings keineswegs ein Versäumnis, wie unsere Bleistiftzeichnung verdeutlicht. Der leicht aus der Mitte heraus versetzte Baum bestimmt mit seiner ausladenden Baumkrone das Bild. Der Ausblick links und die Hütte rechts stabilisieren die Komposition. Mit einer wunderbaren Mischung aus präzisem, aber nie pedantischem und flottem, aber nie fahrigem Strich gelingt Höger eine gelungene Mischung aus Detailbeschreibung und atmosphärischer Gesamterscheinung.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Mannheim, 4. III. 1846.. 2½ SS. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-8vo. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief).. An den Sänger Ludwig Cramolini (1805-1884): "Hätte ich nur einige Wochen früher erfahren, daß Du nicht mehr in Darmstadt Lust zu bleiben hast, so hätte ich mich mit der nemlichen Frage an Dich gewendet, die Du jetzt an mich stellst. Mittlerweilen sind aber zwei Tenoristen auf Gastrollen und Engagement eingeladen worden [...] Wir haben ein eigenes Unglück mit unserem Tenoristen. Ist einmal einer da, der gefällt, so lauft er entweder fort oder er verliert seine Stimme [...] Bei erprobt guten Tenoristen kommen wir entweder zu früh oder zu spät und so leidet die hies. Oper schon seit Jahren an diesem wunden Fleck. Übrigens ist ein Engagement wie in Darmstadt nicht leicht wieder gefunden, wegen des unschätzbaren Vortheils durch 4 od. 5 Monate hindurch sein eigener Herr zu seyn. Unannehmlichkeiten gibts an jedem Theater und ich glaube an sehr vielen mehr als in Darmstadt [...]". - Vinzenz Lachner, der Bruder Franz und Ignaz Lachners, wurde 1831 Organist in Wien, 1836 Hofkapellmeister in Mannheim. - Etwas fleckig und gebräunt; im Mittelfalz annähernd durchtrennt; Bl. 2 mit kleinem Ausriß durch Siegelbruch.

        The inhalation of an ethereal vapour to prevent sensibility to pain during surgical operations (pp.356-359). + Peirson, A.L.: Surgical Operations with the aid of the "New Gas" (pp.362-363).

      - Boston Med. Surg. J., 35/18. - Boston, Wednesday, December 2, 1846, 8°, pp.349-368, orig. wrappers in a fine slip case. First Edition, in the extreme rare original wrappers! - Upon the advice of friends, Morton, through his agent, Edward Warren, presented a memorial to the 29th Congress, 2nd Session, to have his priority to the ether discovery established and to request an award for the use of his patent (U.S. Patent No. 4848, November 12, 1846), which at that time was so important for the use of ether to provide comfort and care to those wounded in the war with Mexico. This first of many presentations to the U.S. Congress was heard by the Select Committee of the House of Representatives, consisting of five members, four of whom were physicians.* They listened but made no report, and their deliberations were not published. Members of the committee were apparently confused by the slanderous campaign against Morton by a group of dentists and a few physicians in Boston and vicinity, led by Josiah F. Flagg (1789-1853), a practicing dentist. This group's effort came to be known as the "Dental Manifesto" and was effective in ruining Morton's reputation, dental practice and income. -cf. Eugene H. Conner - On the back cover we find W.T.G.Mortons add "To Surgeons and Physicians" and M.P.Hanson's add "Surgical Operations without Pain" - "M.P.Hanson, M.D., 10 Tremont Temple, Boston, is preapared to furnish Dentists and Surgeons generally with apparatus and instructions for the use of the COMPOUND VAPOR ANODYNE. All necessary instructions can be communicated by letter and apparatus sent by express. Terms low. Orders my be sent to my room, or to N.Hunt, Agent 128 Washington St.; Dec.2--if."

        THE MANSIONS OF ENGLAND AND WALES. COUNTY OF CORNWALL

      London: C.J. Greenwood, 1846. Edward Twycross (1803-1852) published "The Mansions of England and Wales" in 1846-1850. Produced as an historical reference for the stately homes of England and in tracing genealogies of members of the British Aristocracy. Five volumes and the County of Cornwall were published, however, the Cornwall volume is by far the rarest. The financing was through subscription, just sixty subscribed to the Cornwall volume, mainly from the seats illustrated and are listed. There is no copy in the British Library and just one copy held in British libraries auctions records show that just one copy has appeared for sale over the last 30 years. Full page outline map of Cornwall showing the seats and Gentlemens houses, 51 tinted lithograph plates many by C.J. Greenwood. The list of plates calls for a second plate of Place (St. Antony) which is not present here and presumed never published, the only other copy to appear at auction also had one plate missing presumably this bis plate. Original blue cloth binding, good, appears to have been rebacked, cloth slightly faded and a little marked from general wear. Contents clean and tight with minimal foxing, some plates slightly affected but mainly around the margins and the verso, text clean and paper bright, no inscriptions, stamps or book plates. Provenance: Signed by Francis John Hext of Tredethy to the front pastedown; Captain Hext of Tredethy, was one of the original subscribers to this work. A rare and desirable item . First Edition.

        New Commentaries on the Laws of England. 4 Vols. 1st American Edition

      1846. First American Edition of Stephens's New Commentaries Stephen, Henry John [1787-1864]. New Commentaries on the Laws of England (Partly Founded on Blackstone). New-York: Halsted & Voorhies, 1841-1846. [Imprint varies: Volumes II-IV state New-York: John S, Voorhies.] Four volumes. Folding tables of descents and consanguinity. Octavo (8-1/2" x 6"). Contemporary law calf, blind rules to boards, red and black lettering pieces to spine. Moderate rubbing with some wear to extremities, some chipping to lettering pieces, some stains and scuffs to boards, hinges cracked or starting. Offsetting to margins of endleaves, occasional light foxing, faint dampstaining to second half of Volume IV. Early owner stamps to each front pastedown, interior otherwise clean. A solid copy of an uncommon set. * First American edition, a reprint of the first London edition, 1841-1845, with some minor typographical changes and the omission of the Table of Consanguinity from Volume II. New Commentaries is an exposition of English law that preserves Blackstone's topical arrangement and the sections from his text that were still relevant in Stephen's day. (These are set off with square brackets.) A successful work, it went through twenty editions by 1938. In the Dictionary of National Biography Dicey observed that "in reality it was an original production, differing essentially in character and merit from his predecessor. (...) Stephen showed the qualities in which Blackstone was comparatively deficient--consummate logical power and singular precision and accuracy of style. Had the work been published as an original treatise, it would have stood upon a level with Blackstone's work" (XVIII:1047). Eller, The William Blackstone Collection in the Yale Law Library 204.

        Sam Houston, the romantic, pens a touching four line poem on the virtues of women

      [Washington?], [c.1846-1859] Autograph Manuscript Signed, "Sam Houston," likely as Senator, 1 page, 5.5" x 4.5", [no place, no date], a four-line poem originally inscribed in a woman's memory book. Light toning from previous matting, a few minor contemporary ink smudges, else very good to fine condition with a large, bold signature. Apart from his reputation as the hero of San Jacinto and founder of Texas, Houston was something of a romantic. Writing in an a hostess' memory book, beneath the title "Texas" (accomplished in another hand), Houston writes in full: "Woman is lovely to the sightAs gentle as the dews of even,As bright as mornings earliest lightAnd spotless at the snows of Heaven." Though undated, it is likely that Houston probably accomplished this poem during his years in Washington representing Texas in the U.S. Senate from 1

      Sketches in Egypt and Nubia, from Drawings made on the Spot. Francis Graham Moon. 1846. - Lithograph. Hand coloured. Size: 36 x 53 cm. Fine condition. Mounted size: 53 x 68.4cm Roberts was the first independent, professional British artist to travel so extensively in the Near East. His tour in 1838-9 produced 272 sketches, a panorama of Cairo and three full sketchbooks, enough material to "serve me for the rest of my life" (Roberts, eastern journal, 28 Jan 1839). Over the next decade he made "a series of intire new drawings" for the large coloured lithographs executed by Louis Haghe for The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt & Nubia, which was originally published by subscription, 1842-9. No publication before this had presented so comprehensive a series of views of the monuments, landscape, and people of the Near East. "Robert's Holy Land was one of the most important and elaborate ventures of nineteenth-century publishing, and it was the apotheosis of the tinted lithograph" (Abbey, Travel). Abbey, Travel, 272; Gay 2216; Ibrahim-Hilmy, II, p.176; Lipperheide 1591; Tooley (1954) 402.

Vergleiche Allgemeine Musikalische Zeitung, Jahrgang 48, Seite 461" [Note: The second and third measure of this page have originated from an engraver's error and should be omitted according to a formerly missed correction by Beethoven.

First Edition, later issue, printed from the original plates, but with a new engraved title and the addition of the printed note to p. 108. Kinsky p. 160.
