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

      London: John van Voorst, 1846. First edition. Cloth. Very Good. <p>Owen, Richard (1804-92). A history of British fossil mammals and birds. xlvi, 560, [2, errata]pp. Folding table. 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>

        PALEOGRAFIA ESPANOLA

      . Zustand: Excelente Einband: Encuadernacion de tapa dura. Barcelona. 1846. Pasta espanola. 37x26. 466Pag+1h. Retrato de Paluzie por Luis Alvini. Paleografia espanola Esta Gran Obra es un resumen de las paleografias publicadas en Espana en el siglo XVIII. 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.

        [SCRAPBOOK OF COL. HENRY LITTLE OF BANGOR, MAINE, CONTAINING NUMEROUS ITEMS OF HORTICULTURAL AND POMOLOGICAL INTEREST]

      [Bangor. 1846-1876].. [Bangor. 1846-1876].. Approximately [89] leaves, pasted with numerous clippings. Several small pamphlets or other pieces laid or pasted in. Folio. Original three-quarter sheep and boards. Spine and corners heavily worn, boards heavily worn. Leaves loose or loosening. Light foxing and soiling. Good. Henry Little (b. 1788) was the proprietor of Henry Little & Co., a Bangor nursery specializing in fruit trees, which flourished in the 1840s and 1850s. He was a veteran of the War of 1812 and was present at Castine when it was captured by the British. In 1829, then residing in Bucksport, he joined the Massachusetts Horticultural Society. Little moved to Bangor in 1836, where he established his nursery and became a leading figure in Maine horticulture. His life was spent in dedicated pursuit of the best fruit varieties for New England culture, and he wrote numerous articles on the subject which he contributed to local and national periodicals. He was a founder and long-time president of the Bangor Horticultural Society, president of the Maine Board of Agriculture, and a regular Maine delegate to national pomological conventions. In 1873, Col. Little moved to Boston to be near his children, at which time he was presented with a gold-headed cane by the citizens of Bangor. ^His scrapbook contains numerous clippings of his horticultural articles, some of which were published anonymously. Also included in the scrapbook are various addresses, his reports of conventions and exhibitions, his accounts of Canadian travel, an occasional letter written to him, articles of interest, poems, prints, and other similar items. His annotations are evident throughout. Among the more interesting individual items are a manuscript diagram of Little&#39;s property in Bangor, showing positions of buildings and gardens, all labeled, and a trimmed but still striking broadside advertisement for Little&#39;s nursery (dated 1846), with the fruits hand- colored, possibly by Little himself. A tantalizing aspect is that Little used an earlier account book containing his nursery accounts to create this scrapbook, which, though obscured by the current contents, could be revealed by careful conservation. ^A fascinating artifact from this important Maine horticulturalist.

      Soleure, J. Gasmann, 1846 - Quer-4°, 8 Textseiten, 14 lithogr. Tafeln., Privater HLwd. d. Zeit, Blätter teilweise hinterlegt, durchgehend stockfleckig, etwas fingerfleckig - Joachim Senn (1810-1847), Zeichner, Maler und Zeichenlehrer. Schüler von Martin Disteli in Olten. - Die Freischarenzüge waren zwei gescheiterte antiklerikale Umsturzversuche in der Schweiz in den Jahren 1844 und 1845. Ziel der radikal-liberalen Aufständischen war es, die konservative Regierung des Kantons Luzern zu stürzen und die Jesuiten zu vertreiben. Andere Kantone waren mit der Entsendung von Freischaren indirekt beteiligt, während die Tagsatzung sich zurückhielt. Die Aufstände hatten die Gründung des Sonderbundes zur Folge und waren Auslöser des Sonderbundskriegs. Insgesamt forderten die Kämpfe über 120 Todesopfer, davon mehr als 100 bei den Freischärlern. Die Luzerner machten rund 2000 Gefangene. Die Kantonsregierung ging gegen die Aufständischen hart vor: Über 700 Luzerner wurden zu Gefängnisstrafen verurteilt, die Freischärler aus anderen Kantonen gegen hohe Lösegeldzahlungen freigelassen. Literarischen Niederschlag fanden diese Vorkommnisse in Gottfried Kellers Erzählung «Frau Regel Amrain und ihr Jüngster», 1856 erschienen in der Novellensammlung Die Leute von Seldwyla. 1800 gr.

        JOURNAL OF RANKIN DILWORTH [manuscript caption title]

      [Southern Texas & Northern Mexico]. April 28 - Sept. 19, 1846.. [Southern Texas & Northern Mexico]. April 28 - Sept. 19, 1846.. [94]pp. Approximately 16,500 words. Contemporary marbled boards, recently rebacked in modern calf. Corners worn. Internally clean. Very good. In a clear, legible hand. Mexican-American War diary kept by a young officer, a member of the 1st Infantry of Zachary Taylor&#39;s army, who was mortally wounded at the Battle of Monterrey. Born in Ohio in 1822, Dilworth graduated thirteenth out of twenty- five in his class at West Point in 1844. The diary begins on April 28, 1846, with preparations for leaving Jefferson Barracks in St. Louis, headed to Texas, and describes his transit down the Mississippi River to New Orleans, his travel by Gulf steamer to Brazos Santiago, and then the long, hot, dusty trek overland to Monterrey. During the intense assault on the eastern side of the city on Sept. 21st, Dilworth was mortally wounded by a Mexican cannonball. He lingered until the 27th, presumably long enough to be aware of the American victory. Primarily a military chronicle, Dilworth&#39;s diary contains his observations of the Mexican towns of Matamoros, Reynosa, Camargo, and Cerralvo. His observations include descriptions of the pretty women he saw (some of whom bathed nude), and his impressions of the places the army stayed or marched through. He records frivolity and executions in the same style. On Sept. 7th and 8th he attended two fandangos, where is appears he must have overindulged, as on the 9th he "was very sick, and had to ride in the bagg[age] wagon." In June his entries record observations on the surface of the land, describing trees and plants and houses. There are several mentions of Ben McCullough and the Texas Rangers. On Sept. 10th he mentions being promoted to Fist Lieutenant. Dilworth&#39;s narrative ends the day Taylor&#39;s army reaches Monterrey. Two days later he was caught in a murderous crossfire of cannons on the first day of the battle while attacking on the eastern side of the city. Struck by a twelve-pounder ball that tore off one leg, he lingered for six days. A very readable diary, comprised of 102 entries written by a literate and observant officer. The diary was published in 1996 as THE MARCH TO MONTERREY: THE DIARY OF LT. RANKIN DILWORTH, edited by Lawrence R. Clayton and Joseph E. Chance. Preceding the diary is Dilworth&#39;s eight-page composition "On the Rise and Fall of Nations," and a two-page composition praising the beauty and trials of life - neither of which are included in the published book. On a blank initial leaf is the ownership signature of Abby R. [Dilworth] Jones, Rankin Dilworth&#39;s sister, presumably the owner after Dilworth&#39;s death in Mexico.

        Eight Novels

      London - Printed for the Shakespeare Society, 1846. London - Printed for the Shakespeare Society, 1846 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Riche his Farewell to Militarie Profession by Barnaby Rich that influenced Shakespeare and his contemporaries. Bound in wraps. Barnabe Rich (c1540 1617) was an English author and soldier. His best-known work is Riche his Farewell to Militarie Profession conteining verie pleasaunt discourses fit for a peaceable tyme (1581). Of the eight stories contained in it, five, he says, are forged only for delight, neither credible to be believed, nor hurtful to be perused. The three others are translations from the Italian. Shakespeare took the plot of Twelfth Night from the story of Apolonius and Silla, the second in the collection, which was in turn founded on the tale of Nicuola and Lattantio as told by Matteo Bandello. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. There is significanr wear to the extremities, including bumping with loss. There is an ink inscription along the spine. Internally the pages are clean and bright with mild spotting and handling marks on the first and last couple of pages, with the occasional light spots throughout. Overall the condition is good with a very good interior..
