Zahlreiche Karten stammen aus der Hand von Ludwigs und Valeries Sohn, dem späteren königl.-ungarischen Ernährungsminister Ludwig (Lajos) Aladar Fürst zu Windisch-Graetz (1882-1968), der 1925 maßgeblich an der berüchtigten ungarischen Geldwäscheraffäre beteiligt war, in deren Rahmen sich einige Honoritäten um Windisch-Graetz als einen der Köpfe der Irredenta-Bewegung sammelten und Frankreich durch gefälschte französische Francs "heimzahlen" wollten, daß durch die Verträge von Trianon Ungarn mehr als zwei Drittel seines Territoriums und über die Hälfte seiner Einwohner an Rumänien, die Tschechoslowakei, Jugoslawien und Österreich verloren hatte. - Die Karten stammen u. a. aus Backa Topola, Bad Gastein, Bad Reichenhall, Baden bei Wien, Bleder See (auch Veldeser See) mit Schloss Windisch-Graetz, Bozen, Breslau, Brioni, Brixen, Budapest, Cannes, Düsseldorf, Ebergassing, Friesach, Grein, Hallein, Kietrz (deutsch Katscher), Krakau, Landro (Tirol), Lemberg, Liezen, Lovrana, Marienbad, Menton, Monaco, Mo ovce, München, Neisse, Nizza, Paris, Ratibor, Rom, Salzburg, San Remo, Schloß Hollenegg (Steiermark), Sylt, Trencsin, Truskawez, Lovran, Üdvözlet Makorol, Vahrn bei Brixen, Venedig und Wien.

Von hier berichtet der dort sationierte, die Greuel des Krieges nicht vorausahnende Windisch-Graetz treuherzig an seiner Mutter: "Gestern in Baden gewesen[,] habe Gfin. Stolberg [...] gesehen, welche Dir sehr viel schönes sagen läßt. Tausend Dank für Deine gnädige Karte. Bin sehr wohl Mutter jetzt allerdings glühend heiß auch die Nächte sind drückend [...]".

Bedingt durch die politische Verfolgung und amtliche Zensur haben sich nur wenige Exemplare erhalten. "Denn das feudalreaktionäre Regime bekämpfte den Gesellschaftsspiegel' noch vor Erscheinen mit administrativen Mitteln, und dies nicht nur wegen der erwarteten kommunistischen Propaganda, sondern weil damals das einfache Aussprechen dessen was ist, ein Delikt nahe dem Hochverrat war" (Mohl, Marginalien zum Nachdruck, 1971). - Sämtliche Orig.-Vorder- und Rückumschläge sind beigebunden.

        Der Spielmann bei dem Einsiedler

      . Radierung auf Papier, unbezeichnet, Platte: 26,5 x 21,6 cm, Papier: 40,3 x 30,2 cm. Professionell unter säurefreiem Museumspassepartout montiert.. Mit Moritz von Schwind haben wir es zweifelsohne mit einem der bedeutendsten Vertreter der Spätromantik zu tun, wobei sich sein Werk freilich durch mehr auszeichnet als dem bloßen Nachgeborenendasein. Bereits die Zeitgenossen haben das erkannt, nicht zuletzt deshalb fiel auf ihn die Wahl, als man zu Beginn der 1840er Jahre in Frankfurt versuchte, die hiesige Kunstszene mit bedeutenden Künstlern zu beleben. Dort war er zunächst mit der Umarbeitung des bestellten Historiengemäldes Sängerstreit beschäftigt. Neben dieser für Schwind alsbald zu einseitigen Tätigkeit freute er sich, durch die Natur geprägte Werke schaffen zu können. Unter ihnen die Nixen einen Hirsch tränkend sowie 1846 das Ölgemälde mit einem Spielmann bei einem Einsiedler, nach welchem vorliegende eigenhändige Radierung im Gegensinn entstanden ist. Mit dieser Komposition setzt sich Schwinds seit den 1830er Jahren gehegtes Interesse für das Eremitenthema fort. Narrativ schließt es an die linke Tafel des Wunderlichen Heiligen von 1835 an. Die landschaftliche Szenerie ist den Skizzen eines Einsiedlers ein Ross zur Tränke führend von 1837 entnommen. Der Eremit kehrt zurück in seine Waldbehausung, wo er sein vorausschauend bereits entfachtes Feuer samt darauf gewärmter Mahlzeit wähnt. Jedoch, in seinem Domizil hat sich während seiner Abwesenheit ein barfüßiger Spielmann niedergelassen, der mit prallen Pausbacken einen ebenso erscheinenden Dudelsack spielt. Das Blatt zeichnet sich trotz dieser vermeintlich spannungsvollen Situation durch märchenhafte Ruhe aus: Kein Aufschrecken des Spielmanns, keine empörte Geste des Eremiten, nicht einmal die geringste Interaktion findet statt. Alles ist in die Harmonie der Natur getaucht. Gerade im Vergleich zu der Eremitenszene des Wunderlichen Heiligen, die narrativ durch ihre kontextuelle Einbindung erklärt wird, haftet dem vorliegenden Motiv, das unerklärt bleibt, etwas besonders märchenhaft Verwunschenes aber auch Kurioses an. Es existiert noch eine dritte Fassung dieses Themas: Sie ist ebenfalls im Gegensinn angelegt, so dass diese Version in Öl wohl nach der Radierung entstanden sein wird. Die Radierung stellt somit das Mittlerstück zwischen den beiden Ölgemälden dar. War in der ersten Fassung durch das Licht der warmen Abendsonne eine Idylle um die beiden Außenseiter der Gesellschaft evoziert, so dominiert bei der Radierung eher poetischer Humor, der auf Spitzweg hindeutet. Bei der zweiten Fassung in Öl und Feder schließlich sind der Szene ein Kreuz und ein Andachtsbild - zuvor beides nur einzeln und versteckt vorhanden - hinzugefügt, was eine religiöse Note mit ins Spiel bringt.

        Beiträge zur Naturgeschichte der Vorwelt. Herausgegeben von Wilh. Dunker und Herm. von Meyer (& K.A. Zittel).

      1846. Cassel, Theodor Fischer/ Stuttgart, Schweizerbart, (1846-) 1851-1894. Volumes 1-40. With 1743, mostly lithographed plates of which some tinted, 2 maps. Contemporary half calf, spines with green gilt lettered label, marbled sides. A very rare, almost complete, early run of this most important paleontological periodical. Volume 2 lacks 6 plates and volume 30 does not contain the monographs published between 1898 and 1906, as the library stopped subscribing after 1894. This beautifully produced periodical containing numerous monographs on fossil shells was edited by the leading 19th century German paleontologists Herm. von Meyer, Wilh. Dunker and K.A. Zittel. All famous German paleontologists of the second half of the 19th century contributed, by publishing larger or smaller monographs in the Palaeontographica. "Ein Hauptverdienst Dunkers war es, mit H. v. Meyer zusammen in 1846 die Palaeontographica begründet zu haben, das die deskriptiven Grundlagen der Paläontologie schuf. Dunker gab mit Meyer 18 dieser Bände heraus, anschliessend noch 6 Bände mit K.A. von Zittel. Besonderer Wert erhalten die zahlreichen paläontologischen Veröffentlichungen durch seine selbstgefertigten, vorzüglichen lithographischen Tafeln" (NDB IV, 199). Added to the present set are some volumes of the 'Palaeontographica Supplementbände' (supplement volumes) Supplement volumes to Palaeontographica were published on individual topics. Volume I (1862-66): Hellmann, A. Die Petrefacten Thüringens nach dem Materiale des Herzogl. Naturalien-Kabinets in Gotha; Volume II (1870-84). We have 4 of the 7 monographs, of which one does not have the plates, it however contains the superbly produced monograph by Zittel in large folio 'Die Fauna der älteren cephalopenführenden Tithonbildungen'; Volume III (1875-82), complete and bound 2 vols containing 20 monographs. A very well preserved set, one fasc. of vol. 30 bound in half cloth. Provenance: Small stamp on some title pages 'Stadtbibliothek Winterthur'..

        Reise-Erinnerungen.

      Wien, J[ohannes] Rauh, [1846].. Lithogr. Titel und 6 lith. Tafeln mit Tonplatte und partieller Deckweißhöhung in dekorativer lithogr. Umrahmung. Alle in der Platte monogrammiert "F" und datiert 1845 bzw. 1846. Lose in brauner Leinenkassette. Imp.-Folio (500:335 mm, Bildausschnitt: 235:195 mm).. Bibliographisch und über Bibliothekskataloge nicht nachweisbare erste Ausgabe der auf einer Reise durch Lombardo-Venetien, Istrien und Slowenien entstandenen Zeichnungen des späteren Kaisers. Zum 40jährigen Regierungsjubiläum Kaiser Franz Josefs wurden die sechs Lithographien nochmals unter dem Titel "Reise-Erinnerungen aus Dalmatien 1845. Allerhöchst eigenhändig gezeichnet und lithographiert von Sr. Majestät [...]" bei Reiffenstein & Uhl veröffentlicht. Kein weiteres Exemplar des vorliegenden Erstdrucks nachweisbar; die lithographische Folge des damals gerade 16jährigen Erzherzogs war ursprünglich wohl nur zur Verteilung im kleinsten Kreis bestimmt. Die erwähnte Ausgabe von 1888 unterscheidet sich neben der Verlagsadresse Reiffensteins, der die die Tonplatten des Lithographen Uhls übernommen hatte (vgl. Durstmüller II, 205f.), auch durch das kleinere Format und die abweichende lithographische Umrahmung. - Titel etwas fleckig und mit zwei fachmännisch geschlossenen Einrissen, sonst tadellos. - Vgl. A. M. Sigmund, Die verschollenen Tagebücher Franz Josephs, 166 sowie die Abb. 161f., 164, 167 (nur die A. v. 1888).

        The Life of Jesus, critically examined

      London: Chapman Brothers,, 1846. Translated from the Fourth German Edition. 3 volumes, octavo. Original blind-stamped greyish green cloth, spine lettered gilt, yellow coated endpapers. Housed in a green morocco slipcase with chemise. Half-titles, final leaf in volume 2 and 3 blank, without the 16pp. adverts dated "May 28th, 1846" at the end of vol. 3 (Baker & Ross, Note two (ii), p. 7). Contemporary tickets of the Ministerial Library of the North Ecclesiastical Society to each volume, ownership ticket to volume I. Hinges, ends of spines, and corners professionally repaired, a little toning and spotting to contents. A very good set. First edition of George Eliot's translation, her first published work, uncommon in the original cloth. The translation was of enormous significance, both in Eliot's career, and as a major contribution to the "melancholy, long, withdrawing roar" of the Victorian loss of Christian faith. Strauss's Das Leben Jesu was first published in 1835 and went through four editions in German by 1840. His scholarly work painstakingly investigated the events of Christ's life as told in the four canonical gospels and found them to be not historical, but mythological - the wished-for fulfilment of Old Testament prophecies. Eliot herself, or Mary Ann Evans as she then was, had publicly declared her own loss of faith by refusing to go to church on 2 January 1842. Shortly afterwards she met the radical publisher John Chapman, with whom she was to fall in love, who arranged for her to take over this new translation of Strauss's work from Rufa Brabant. An English translation had been published in 1842-4, though it seems that Mary Ann knew nothing of it. Her translation met Strauss's approval and he contributed a new preface in Latin. Memories of the arduous intellectual labour and emotional attachments involved in this work found literary expression in Mr Casaubon in Middlemarch.

C'est dès 1837, sous l'impulsion personnelle du roi Othon que fut fondée la Société archéologique d'Athènes ; ce fut le premier institut du jeune Etat, tant la volonté de développer et faire connaître l'héritage de la Grèce ancienne est inséparable du projet philhellène à ses débuts. Le premier président fut Ludwig Ross, et sous sa direction, furent lancés très vite de vastes programmes archéologiques : fouilles à Athènes en 1839-1840 pour dégager la Tour des Vents, le monument de Thrasylle, les Propylées de l'Acropole, l'Erechtéion ; fouilles du Théâtre de Dionysos en 1840-1841, etc. Seulement deux exemplaires au CCF (BnF et Bulac). Reliés à la suite les Statuts de la Société archéologique en grec, puis en français : I. Organismos tès Hellênikès archaiologikès hetairias. Athènes, Imprimerie royale, 1848, 16 pp. (texte grec seul). - II. Organisation de la Société archéologique de Grèce. Athènes, Imprimerie royale, 1848, 16 pp. (traduction française) - III.

There is a separate title page: "Chinigchinich: A Historical Account of the Origin, Customs, and Traditions, of the Indians at the Missionary Establishment of St. Juan Capitstrano, Alta California...By the Rev. Father Friar Geromino Bascana... N.Y., Wiley and Putnam, 1846. Useful authority on the period covered and the first account of California in English by an resident. The author came to the province in 1829 and married into the prominent De Guerra family..." The original edition has become quite scarce. Unquestioned as an authority, his work is without doubt the most important book for the period it treats, and is interesting as the first English book on California to be written by a resident of the province. Robinson originally intended his LIFE IN CALIFORNIA to be a preface for Fray Boscana's CHINIGCHINICH, but in the end the 'tail wagged the dog' and for the historian the LIFE IN CALIFORNIA is vastly more important - Zamorano 80.

      London: John Murray, 1846. First edition of the works of Ricardo. Octavo, original cloth with gilt titles to the spine. In very good condition with light rubbing to the cloth. Uncommon, especially in the original cloth. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box.David Ricardo became a stockbroker at the age of 21 and slowly became a recognized economic scholar in England.

"David Ricardo is without doubt the greatest representative of classical political economy. He carried the work begun by Adam Smith to the farthest point possible… Ricardo, writing 50 years later than Smith, showed a greater insight into the working of the economic system… In the opinion of his own contemporaries at home and abroad, Ricardo was acknowledged the leader of the science… His most important work is On the Principles of Political Economy and Taxation, first published in 1817" (Roll, History of Economic Thought, 155-6).

        British Wild Flowers

      William S Orr & Co, LONDON 1846 - A poor copy of this beautiful work with 60 hand coloured plates. Classed as poor because the title page is missing; the binding is poor - in marked plain cloth and beginning to detach; and there is a little marking internally. The pagination matches our other 2nd edition copy so this is presumed as second, dated to 1846. The plates are in good condition - there is some brown spotting to edges, and around 3 have a darkened section, again at the edge not affecting the flower image (we have noticed only one plate with a light mark affecting the flower). All have tissue guards - one guard is torn and one has a small hole - most guards have marking. A few text pages have a little marking and p 117 has a repaired tear to the top margin. The final index page has a small hole at the top. This copy would be well worth rebinding. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        TOPOGRAPHICAL MAP OF THE ROAD FROM MISSOURI TO OREGON COMMENCING AT THE MOUTH OF THE KANSAS IN THE MISSOURI RIVER AND ENDING AT THE MOUTH OF THE WALLAH-WALLAH IN THE COLUMBIA

      Baltimore: E. Weber & Co., 1846.. Seven individual sheets, each 15 3/4 x 25 1/2 inches, folded. Tied at right edge with remains of blue paper spine. Light scattered foxing; faint dampstaining, heavier to rear sheets. Some slight separation at corners of folds. Still, about very good. First issue of the first map "to show the Oregon Trail accurately" (Rumsey). One of the greatest monuments to the cartography of the American West. Charles Preuss, born George Karl Ludwig Preuss in Höhscheid, Prussia in 1803, served as the cartographer on Fremont's first and second expeditions and drew all of the maps which accompany Fremont's reports. Preuss also produced the present masterful map of the Oregon Trail. It is drawn to a very detailed scale, ten miles to an inch, and in addition to providing accurate cartographical information about the whole of the 1,670 mile route between the Missouri and the Columbia rivers, the sheets combine to give a real feeling of the daily progress of the expedition (in 1842 and 1843, between June 10 and October 26) by including indicators of where and when each overnight camp was set, where each noon-day halt was called, and the total distance from the starting point of Westport Landing. Longitudinal and latitudinal coordinates are also given, as are daily "Meteorological Observations" and "Remarks," including notes on the availability of game, water, grazing, the friendliness (or otherwise) of local Indian tribes, and some quite lengthy extracts from Fremont's REPORT. A second revised issue of this map was published in 1849. "More than any other persons, John Charles Fremont and Charles Preuss dominate the cartography of the American West during the three years before the gold rush...Owing to its rarity and to its long having stood in the shadow of the more widely known and distributed Fremont-Preuss map of 1845, Preuss' sectional map of 1846 has been insufficiently appreciated by students of Western history. In particular, those interested either in Fremont's travels in 1842-43 or the revolution of the transcontinental wagon roads will find that the map rewards close study" - Wheat.

Hill 197 (London ed.). Ferguson 4243. Forster 11. Browne?s scarcest book, complete with the rare frontispiece, ?Cutting In and Trying Out'. "Browne, an Irishman by birth and an American by adoption, was by profession a newspaperman and civil servant. He earned some renown as a traveler and travel writer. In 1848 he was sent to California as a treasury officer and he spent the rest of his life, except for trips, in the West. Since Browne knew shorthand, he was appointed as recording secretary of the California Constitutional Convention. 'Etchings..' was his first book, and was written in large part to show what life was like on a whale ship, in order to better the lot of seaman. The narrative provides one of the few accounts of life in the whaling fleet of the 1840s, written by an intelligent and sensitive observer. Brown was influenced by Richard Henry Dana and, in turn, was imitated by Herman Melville, " (Hill, Voyages, 2nd. ed., p. 70). Melville, in fact, reviewed the work favorably (Piazza Tales) and it was one of the two volumes he used extensively to augment his own somewhat limited whaling experiences. Extremities worn with minor loss at foot of spine, boards rubbed, early owner's pencil inscription on verso of frontispiece, scattered foxing, a few signatures re-sewn and askew, still about very good for a title usually found in poor condition.
