        George Catlin offers the U. S. House of Representatives his <I>"...extensive and unique collection of Indian portraits..."</I>

      Autograph letter signed "Geo. Catlin", two pages, 8.25" x 10.75", Paris, April 1, 1846. This is Catlin's retained "Copy of Memorial sent to Congress", addressed "To the Hon. The Speaker & Members of the House of Representatives". This letter eloquently expresses his determination to preserve his body of work known as his Indian Gallery produced during the previous decade, described in this letter as containing "nearly 600 paintings of portraiture and customs of 48 different tribes...and the most extensive and valuable collection of costumes, weapons, and other Indian manufactures in the world...40 full length figures, completely costumed, the heads of which are facsimile casts from the life, of distinguished Indians on the frontier of the United States, and coloured to nature." The production of the Indian Gallery had cost Catlin much labor and money. When he wrote this letter, his main concern was to keep the collection together, but he also wanted to recover his l

        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.

        Draft proof of a printed letter to William Gladstone concerning colonial affairs

      Colchester: printed by Stewart and Murray, February, 1846. Octavo, 98pp., without title page (as issued), drop title &#39;Draft Proof. Nayland, February 1846.&#39; to first leaf; with the signature of magistrate John Walpole Willis and numerous manuscript notes throughout, a little browning yet very good in modern half green morocco. A Colonial judge reads Wakefield. Very rare: printed "Draft Proof" of Wakefield&#39;s letter to the British minister (and later Prime Minister) William Gladstone, with numerous manuscript annotations by John Walpole Willis (1793-1877). Willis was a judge of the Supreme Court of New South Wales who was later appointed as a magistrate in Melbourne, and his careful reading of Wakefield&#39;s letter is more evidence of the latter&#39;s influence. Willis&#39; first colonial appointment was to the court of equity for Upper Canada, and several of his notes in the present volume refer to Canadian precedents. While in Canada, Willis came into conflict with judicial authorities and was removed from his office and returned to London. After serving in British Guinea, Willis was finally appointed a judge of the Supreme Court of New South Wales and arrived in the colony in 1838. Here a quarrel with the chief justice Sir James Dowling led to him being transferred to Melbourne in March 1841. Despite his comprehensive ability in law and jurisprudence, Willis&#39; strong temper and direct manner of speech alienated the legal community and powerful interest groups of Melbourne. He was removed from office by Governor Gipps in June 1843 despite an outcry from the press and a popular public meeting called to protest against his dismissal. Willis returned to England shortly afterwards where he continued his interest in colonial affairs. Here he proof-read this draft copy of Wakefield&#39;s letter to Gladstone, adding numerous marginal notes drawing upon his significant legal experience. In 1850 Willis expounded his own views by publishing his own book titled On the Government of the British Colonies. This draft copy of Wakefield&#39;s letter, annotated by a magistrate of several years service in Australia, demonstrates the wide influence he exercised in promoting colonial reform. There is no indication that the letter was ever actually published; this draft printing is extremely rare. Another example is in the Hocken collection at the University of Otago, but it was not known to Ferguson.

Very rare pamphlet on colonisation by Sir Edward Macarthur, almost never offered on the market. Macarthur (1789-1872) was the eldest son of John and Elizabeth Macarthur. He had a long career in Australia including service in New South Wales and Victoria, and was in the 1840s a strong advocate of emigration to the colony. &#39;A very rare pamphlet, a copy of which was found among the Macarthur Papers, now in the Mitchell Library, Sydney&#39; (Ferguson). Ferguson records that the fuller title and date is based on the wrappers on the Mitchell copy (not present here); Ferguson also noted the Mitchell copy only, but a second is now held in the National Library.

        [ artifact, History of Computing ] Fuller&#39;s Time Telegraph and Palmer&#39;s Computing Scale

      Massachusetts: John E. Fuller, 1846. Hardcover. Very Good. 10 7/8 inches by 11 inches. 1/4 inches thick. Lacks the often missing cloth enclosure and printed instruction guide. Pressed paper construction with lithographed overlay, and edges with decorative thin leather borders with gilt decoration, the whole lacquered. Each "side" has a rotating volvelle with scales, and a recessed metal thumb on the disc which can be used for rotation. A metal rivet through the center holds the 2 discs in place. There is some minor loss to the gold stamped decorated black border finish, and one corner is bumped. There is an ink inscription &#39;Property of L. Derr&#39; on the Fuller side. Both sides rotate as they should, but the Palmer side is curled outward from it&#39;s hole as if slightly too large. There is a fairly uniform darkening/soiling to both sides. Hardcover. Palmer&#39;s Computing Scale is one of the most desirable artifacts for those who collect early American Slide Rules and calculating devices. It was designed by Mr. Aaron Palmer and Mr. George G Smith in early 1841. A prototype was shown in early 1842, and later in Boston in the fall of 1843. Bobby Feazel notes that the Scale&#39;s first commercial appearance was in January 1844. This first circular rule had a front volvelle, and instructions printed on the rear. Feazel further notes Mr. John E. Fuller purchased the copyrights to the device from Palmer, and in 1845 copyrighted the Time Telegraph. This second device was affixed to the rear of Palmer&#39;s Computing Scale, and "how to" instructions were provided in a separate cloth case with foldout and instructions (not present here). There were various versions of this device produced from 1845 to 1871. Our example was published in 1845/46 (further differentiation of the date is impossible without the instruction book). This example has the Palmer slide rule showing a copyright of 1843, and the Fuller side copyright 1845. See Origins of Cyberspace #302 and Journal of the Oughtred Society Vol 3 No 1 and Vol 4 no 1 for more information.

        North American scenery faithfully delineated: in a series of illustrative views from original drawings, taken on the spot, by E. Whitefield; the literary department under the superintendence of John Keese, Esq].

      [New York: H. Long & Bro., 1846]. - 4to., (12 x 9 ½ inches). (Title page not present). 28 chromolithographed plates (occasional offsetting). Contemporary half calf, red cloth boards, the smooth spine in five compartments with gilt lettering in one (spine cracked, extremities scuffed with loss). Provenance: Contemporary ownership stamp to recto of front free endpaper: "M. M. Neil." First edition. This copy of Whitefield's well-known North American scenes contains all 28 chromolithographs, featuring views of "County Seat, Near Yonkers," "View on the Ohio River," "View of the Cattskill Mts.," "Sunnyside, Residence of Washington Irving, Esq.," "Falls of the Yantic," and "Saratoga Lake, N.Y." After emigrating to the U.S. from England in 1838, Whitefield took up sketching landscapes with an eye toward publishing. In the 1840s he toured along the Hudson River and New York City, painting views of famous estates as well as local flora, and teaching drawing classes to pay the bills. In the 1850s he traveled to Minnesota, where he produced a number of watercolor landscapes of the area, later returning to England and Scotland to promote settlement in the new state. The views found in this book are predominantly from the Northeast, depicting both natural scenes and stately buildings.

        A New Universal Atlas Containing Maps of the various Empires, Kingdoms, States and Republics of the World. With a special map of each of the United States, Plans of Cities &c

      S. Augustus Mitchell, Philadelphia 1846 - Period half dark red morocco over marbled paper covered boards Mitchell's first issue of Tanner's New Universal Atlas, with hand-coloured maps of all the individual States and Territories, including Texas. S. Augustus Mitchell and his sons were the leading publishers of maps in the United States during most of the nineteenth century. Mitchell had come to Philadelphia around 1830 with the intention of improving the standard of geography textbooks, Philadelphia then being the leading city in America for cartographical publications. A New American Atlas , published in 1831, was his first work. In 1845 he acquired the rights to Tanner's New Universal Atlas (first published in 1836), and in 1846 he published his first edition of the present work. Mitchell continued to publish the Atlas until 1850, when he sold the copyright to Cowperthwait & Co. of Philadelphia. Thomas, Cowperthwait & Company published it until the mid-1850s, when it was purchased by Charles De Silver. The Cowperthwait company continued to add, edit, alter and hand-colour the maps. This is the first Mitchell edition of Henry Tanner's A New Universal Atlas . Despite its title, the Atlas concentrates to a marked degree on the American continent with 42 maps and plans of the area, including three city plans of New York, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. Including the insets, the atlas contains 117 maps. Phillips Atlases 6103; Ristow pp. 311-313. Folio. (17 3/8 x 13 7/8 inches). Engraved title with large vignette, letterpress Table of contents, hand-coloured frontispiece of the heights of the principal mountains and lengths of the principal rivers, 71 hand-coloured maps, many with insets [complete].

        MOUNTED PHOTOGRAPH in THE ART - UNION, monthly journal of the fine arts and the arts, decorative, ornamental. Volume the eighth.

      London, Palmer & Clayton, January to December 1846.FIRST EDITION 1846, 4to, 280 x 225 mm, 11 x 9 inches, illustrated throughout, 2 colour plates, 338 pages, bound in half calf over marbled sides, patterned gilt dividing lines, gilt raised bands, heavily gilt in compartments, gilt lettered brown morocco label, edges and endpapers marbled. Spine edges and corners very slightly rubbed, tiny binder's label on front pastedown, a couple of pages faintly unevenly browned, occasionaL light foxing to margins of plates, slight offsetting opposite colour plates, small closed tear to upper corner of page 189, repaired neatly, no loss, a very good clean sturdy copy. At page 143 in the number for June 1st is an original tissue guarded mounted photograph by Fox Talbot, known as a Talbotype or calotype, 180 x 130 mm, 7 x 5¼ inches, with a small printed label on reverse of mount: "Patent Talbotype or Sun Pictures". It shows 8 small porcelain figures and vases on 2 shelves. The photograph is in very good condition with normal fading, the mount has a little pale foxing. The photograph illustrates a 2 page article on the calotype process and Fox Talbot's part in its development. There is a further 1 page article on page 195: The Application of the Talbotype. At the end of this article the publisher's state "that the whole of the Talbotypes issued with the June number of the Art - Union were taken from the actual objects they represent; they were strictly copies from Nature; in no case had a print been made use of for the purpose of transfer. It is needless to state that prints or drawings may be easily multiplied by this process; but Mr Talbot in selecting examples for our Journal, carefully omitted all specimens of that class - confining himself entirely to SUN - PICTURES FROM NATURE". Public interest was so great that several negatives had to be used successively for an edition that ran to 7000 copies. This is the first example of a periodical illustrated by a photograph. William Henry Fox Talbot (1800 - 1877), began experimenting with capturing images on light - sensitive paper around 1834, and patented the calotype in 1840. It was the first instance of a photograph secured on paper and produced with paper negatives, which allowed for multiple copies of the same image to be made, as opposed to the daguerreotype invented by L. J. M. Daguerre in 1839. In 1845 Talbot published "The Pencil of Nature," the first book to be illustrated with photographs.

        Manners and Customs of the Aborigines of the Encounter Bay Tribe ; South Australia

      Adelaide: George Dehane, 1846. Octavo, 15pp., very fine in the original printed blue paper wrappers; in a blue quarter morocco solander case by Sangorski. The Aborigines of Encounter Bay. An exceptional copy in remarkable original condition of this rare work on the Aboriginal tribes of Encounter Bay in South Australia, the "Ngarrindjeri". Heinrich Edward August Meyer was a Lutheran missionary who arrived in Australia in 1840, and who lived at Encounter Bay until 1848. Meyer was an alumnus of the Dresden Missionary School, &#39;which placed great emphasis on learning the language because it believed in the importance of communicating with the Aboriginal people in their own language&#39; (Corinne Bannister, A Longitudinal Study of Ngarrindjeri, online). Based on extensive fieldwork done in the earliest years of South Australian settlement, the book takes the rather novel form of tracing the life cycle of the Aborigines of the tribe from birth to death. Meyer is particularly interesting regarding the burial customs of the tribe, noting at one point how the corpses of young and middle-aged adults are placed next to a fire until the skin becomes loose enough to remove: &#39;After a few days the skin becomes loose and is taken off. Such a corpse is then called grinkari. This custom may explain why this name has been applied to Europeans, from the resemblance between their color and that of the native corpse after the skin has been removed.&#39; Meyer also manages to print rather simple versions of several Dreamtime stories of the region, including one on the creation of language. He had printed the first vocabulary of the region in 1843, and here uses and translates several important terms, including several example sentences.

        A history of British fossil mammals, and birds. Large paper copy

Text wood-engravings. London: John van Voorst, 1846. 256 x 165 mm. Original dark green cloth, gilt-lettered spine, minor wear. </p><p>First Edition, Large Paper Copy. Owen was conservator of the Museum of the Royal College of Surgeons from 1842-56, and superintendent of British Museum&#39;s Departments of Natural History from 1856 until his retirement in 1883. An anti-Darwinist, Owen developed his own theory of evolution as species development according to divinely implanted laws; however, by the time of Darwin&#39;s death in 1889 Owen had come to acknowledge the validity of Darwin&#39;s theory of evolution of natural selection.</p><p>Owen&#39;s interest in fossil mammals began in 1836 when he was asked to describe the fossil material brought back by Darwin from the Beagle voyage; his results were issued as Part I of the Zoology of the Voyage of H. M. S. Beagle (1840). Owen went on to publish several works on the subject, including the present one, which caused him to be compared favorably in the British press to Cuvier and von Humboldt. The production of a large paper version in addition to the regular edition was highly unusual for a scientific work published during this period. DSB. Rupke, Owen, p. 351. </p>

        Variations de l'Amore.

      ca 1846 - Two suites of erotic watercolours, the first consisting of 9 numbered watercolours captioned in French and German, the second being 6 unnumbered watercolours captioned in German, both suites within gilt borders, image size 16 x 11.5cm., all pictures with overlays which lift to reveal erotic details, each image in a passe partout, well preserved in modern red morocco-backed clamshell box, morocco lettering piece to upper cover. The fragility of the overslips makes the present collection a rare surviving example of this style of erotica. Seemingly innocent conversation-piece watercolours change into something entirley different when the overslip is lifted to reveal .all! The captions which accompany the watercolours make for great humour. A delightful item. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Comprende una sucinta historia de la escritura adornada con los caracteres antiguos y modernos que cada Nacion ha tenido:un resumen del ensayo sobre los alfabetos de las letras desconocidas que se encuentran en las mas antiguas medallas y monumentos de Espana. El criterio de Paluzie no fue reproducir las muestras en grabados, como hicieron sus antecesores, sino que prefirio transcribir a mano todas las muestras de los anteriores tratados ya que creia que los textos manuscritos eran mas parecidos a los originales y las muestras en grabado tendian a mejorar la caligrafia original.

        Das Bedürfnis eines zweckmäßigen Unterrichts in der Malerei und plastischen Kunst. Vorschläge zur Reform der österr.- kaiserlichen Akademie der bildenden Künste. Andeutungen zur Belebung der vaterländischen Kunst. Drei Hefte.

      -,, Wien, 1846 - Wien, -, 1846 - 1849 - 1857. 8°. 47, 23, 115 S. OBrosch. in Biedermeierkassette. Waldmüller, (1793 - 1865), studierte 1807-13 an der Akademie der bildenden Künste in Wien, bildete sich an den alten Meistern und durch das Studium der Natur weiter und begann als Miniaturmaler. 1811-13 war er gräflicher Zeichenlehrer in Agram, dann Theaterdekorationsmaler in Prag und Brünn und wurde 1829 Erster Kustos der Gemäldegalerie und Prof. an der Akademie der Schönen Künste in Wien. Bis 1851 unterrichtete er auch Historienmalerei und führte bis 1854 eine viel besuchte private Malschule. Schon 1846 hatte er gegen die Lehrweise der Akademie die Streitschrift Das Bedürfnis eines zweckmäßigeren Unterrichts in der Malerei und plastischen Kunst veröffentlicht. Waldmüllers Andeutungen zur Hebung der vaterländischen Kunst (1857) führten zu seiner vorzeitigen Pensionierung mit halbem Gehalt. Seit 1864 wurde ihm von Kaiser Franz Joseph I. die volle Pension zuteil. Waldmüller schuf mehr als tausend Ölbilder, daneben wenige Aquarelle und Zeichnungen. In naturgetreuer und nuancenreicher Farbgebung malte er Porträts Wiener Bürger (Rosina Wiser, 1822), Stilleben und Landschaften, häufig mit Motiven aus dem Wienerwald, dem Prater und dem Salzkammergut (Der Wolfgangsee, 1835). Im Kampf gegen den akademischen Klassizismus arbeitete er überwiegend in der freien Natur (Pleinairmalerei). In der Vorliebe für Lichtwirkungen nahm er Aspekte des Impressionismus (u.a. der Schule von Barbizon) vorweg, bewahrte aber in den plastischen Eigenschaften seiner Figuren und Objekte sowie in der kompositionellen Ausgewogenheit Ausdrucksmittel der Historienmalerei. Waldmüller wurde zum Hauptvertreter der Biedermeiermalerei und mit seinen genau beobachteten Genrebildern (Perchtoldsdörfer Bauernhochzeit, 1843) zum Vorläufer des Realismus in der österr. Malerei. (DBE) - Hier das Gesamtwerk der schriftlichen Aufzeichnungen Waldmüllers. In der von Arthur Roessler und Gustav Pisko im Selbstverlage edierten Schriften (Wien 1907) wurde die erste Publikation (Das Bedürfnis eines zweckmäßigen Unterrichts in der Malerei und plastischen Kunst) nur in der zweiten Ausgabe abgedruckt. Die drei Schriften Waldmüllers gelten als unauffindbar. Zwischen 1950 - 2000 wurde kein einziges Exemplar verauktioniert. Ein RARISSIMUM! Deutsch OBrosch. in Biedermeierkassette.
