        Mount Auburn Illustrated

      1847. SMILLIE, James. Mount Auburn, Illustrated in Highly Finished Line Engraving, From Drawings taken on the spot. With Descriptive Notices by Cornelia W. Walter. 119, [1] pp. Illustrated with additional engraved title-page, 1 full-page engraved map of Mount Auburn Cemetery, 17 full-page engraved plates of select monuments and views therein, and 5 full-page engraved plates depicting designs for monumental enclosures. 4to., 268 x 203 mm, bound in original publisher's deluxe green cloth with gilt-stamped and illustrated vignettes of stylized views of the Cemetery entrance, a.e.g. New York: Robert Martin, 1847. First Edition of this fundamental work on cemetery landscape design. Founded in 1831, Mount Auburn Cemetery represents the first large-scale designed landscape that was opened to the public. It is one of the finest examples of the rural cemetery movement. It has been designated a National Historic Landmark by the Department of the Interior, recognizing Auburn as one of the country's most significant cultural landscapes. Originally issued in parts under the uniform title "Rural Cemeteries in America" (1846-1847), the present volume is preserved in the original publisher's gilt-stamped green cloth binding. "Long before the professionalism of landscape architecture, new American cemeteries provided models of landscape taste and trained generations of landscape designers, producing lasting effects on our built environment" (Blanche Linden-Ward, American Landscape Architecture p. 121). The present volume provides a wealth of information on Boston's Mount Auburn cemetery, "the first 'rural' cemetery and prototype for many others" (ibid, p. 121). James Smillie was, in the words of David Stauffer, "an admirable line-engraver of landscape" who worked largely from his own drawings. The plates herein exhibiting a very high degree of execution and artistic sensibility. This copy features 2 additional plates of monument enclosure which are not called for on the list of plates. Slightest of wear to binding extremities, else a fine copy. Arts in America B570-1. See Stauffer I, p. 248.

        Journal of an Overland Expedition in Australia, from Moreton Bay to Port Essington

      London: T. & W. Boone, 1847. Octavo, seven plates including frontispiece, vignettes, aside from some moderate foxing of the plates a fine copy in original publisher's cloth. A handsome copy of a pivotal document in the history of Australian exploration, here seen in the original publishers blind-blocked cloth. Ludwig Leichhardt's Journal of an Overland Expedition in Australia... documents one of the most unlikely and courageous ventures ever undertaken in the history of the continent.When Leichhardt arrived in Sydney in February 1842 he was considered learned but eccentric: he possessed no bush craft skills, had poor eyesight and was unable to shoot. Yet he proved a quick learner and launched successful forays as far north as Moreton Bay. For some years settlers had eagerly talked of finding a route from southern Queensland to the Northern Territory, so linking their abundant grazing districts with Asian markets. When a Government funded expedition stalled, Leichhardt headed his own venture funded by pastoralists and business-men impressed by the seemingly indefatigable German.What followed was one of the longest journeys of Australian inland exploration - a trek of stupefying distance, difficulty and endurance spanning 4,800 kilometres. The party was racked by interpersonal conflict, inexperience and continual hostility from local Aboriginal tribes (in late June 1845 one member was killed and two others seriously injured during a raid near the Gulf of Carpentaria). After fourteen months they finally reached Port Essington in the Northern Territory in a state of perilous exhaustion.When Leichhardt and his men returned to Sydney they had been given up as lost. Celebrations lasted for months and he was hailed 'the prince of explorers' and received a sizeable sum raised by public subscription. His scientific and geographic work was greatly admired during his lifetime, but his reputation as an expeditionary leader has been criticised since. Leichhardt's mercurial temperament and mysterious death during a later expedition have become part of the mythology of European Australia.This copy corresponds to the primary issue described in Australian Rare Books, with corresponding title lettered on the spine, publisher's advertisements and slip advertising the release of Jukes' Narrative of the Surveying Voyage of H.M.S. Fly. However, it includes an additional four pages of unpaginated advertisements at the rear: Australian Rare Books notes 'Various secondary issues of both primary and secondary bindings have been noted with different combinations of advertisements'.

        Trio No. 1 in D minor for piano, violin and violoncello, opus 63. Autograph composing manuscript. Unsigned. [Dresden]. Inscribed by the composer "Trio (Skizze) and "Juni 1847" to upper margin of first page of music.

      - A highly significant manuscript of Schumann's important first Piano Trio in D minor, clearly demonstrating the composer's working methods and thus offering considerable insight into his creative process. The work dates from the height of Schumann's career, the year after his Second Symphony op. 61, and has become a staple of the chamber music repertory. "The greatest of [the three Piano Trios]., the first in D minor, op. 63 (1847), is a magnificent specimen of the romantic trio, on a par with one of its obvious models, Mendelssohn's in the same key." Walker, ed.: Robert Schumann, p. 216."Schumann viewed the creation of the Second Symphony as providing him with a beneficial catharsis. After its completion, he resumed composition with renewed vigor. He returned to chamber music, with his two piano trios published in 1848 and 1849 as his op. 63 and op. 80. The First Piano Trio op. 63 mirrors the mood of the Second Symphony. It too relates a program of struggle and melancholy to triumph. The first movement ("Mit Energie und Leidenschaft"), sets the stage." Jensen: Schumann, pp. 293-294.The Sammlung Wiede, assembled from the end of the 19th century into the early 20th, contained a large and important collection of autograph manuscripts of Schumann, including this manuscript of the Piano Trio op. 63 as well as that of the Piano Concerto op. 54.The present manuscript has heretofore been unavailable to modern scholarship; the only other autograph of the work, Schumann's fair copy executed for the printer, is currently inaccessible. Folio, approximately 300 x 230 mm. Unbound, with remnants of early sewing thread. 25 pages on 13 leaves. Notated in ink and pencil on 16-stave music manuscript paper. Preserved in a dark blue cloth folder with decorative gilt stamping to edges, dark maroon leather title label gilt to upper within decorative gilt border. Schumann's first continuous draft of three movements, substantially complete, in full score, short score and piano score, together with other sketches for the work, minus the third slow movement (apparently composed at a later date). With numerous autograph amendations, cancels, rewritings and additions; measure and page numbers added, including measure counts to margins as found in some other working manuscripts of Schumann. With an early exhibition label from the Schumann Museum in Zwickau laid in with manuscript notes identifying the work, date of composition, and the performers in a festival concert. Provenance: The Alfred Wiede Collection, Weissenborn, Germany.Some minor wear and browning but in very good condition overall. McCorkle p. 274, Ib. Eismann p. 17. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Obras poeticas." Autograph manuscript on paper in Portuguese, dated 1847 on the title page and probably copied in Lisbon, where most of the poems were written.

      , , 1847. - Written in ink, in a large, legible hand.

We have been unable to locate L.A.R. de Sá in any of the Portuguese bibliographies or in the @Grande enciclopédia. From the works included in this volume, which date from 1843 to 1847, it is clear that he spent some time in and around Lisbon. This copy of the work was done at the request of, and presented to, D.

The two autograph notes instruct Sabin to prepare fro emergency musters. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Der idyllische Einklang

      1847. Aquarell über Federzeichnung auf Papier, unten rechts signiert und datiert: "E Hasse inv. 1847.", 19,2 x 28,8 cm. Professionell unter säurefreiem Museumspassepartout montiert.. Das vorliegende Aquarell kann als paradigmatisch für Ernst Hasses Kunst gelten. Es vereint in sich die prägenden Elemente seines Lehrers Ludwig Richter und verweist bereits auf seinen späteren künstlerischen Schwerpunkt, die Tiermalerei. Das romantische Stimmungsbild, das Hasse hier evoziert, wird durch die harmonische Eintracht von Mensch, Tier und Natur getragen. Diese ergibt sich durch eine regelrechte Bildkette, die die verschiedenen Gruppen untereinander verbindet. Links im Vordergrund lagert eine kleine Schafherde, weitestgehend für sich und sich selbst genügend. Das weiter rechts stehende Schaf allerdings durchbricht die Isolation und leitet durch seine Kopfwendung den Blick hinüber zu der durch einen Fluss getrennten Personengruppe. Auch diese bleibt in ihrem eigenen Bereich im Zwiegespräch vertieft. Lediglich das Kleinkind, das eine Ziege füttert, offenbart die Zugehörigkeit zum gleichen Lebensraum. Der Blick des Betrachters folgt schließlich dem kleinen Weg den Hügel hinauf und findet dort den einsamen Hirten mit seiner Kuhherde, vertieft in den träumerischen Fernblick auf die weite Landschaft. Auf diese Weise schließt sich der Kreis von den in der Natur lagernden Tieren, hin zu den Menschen und ihrer Teilhabe an dieser Umgebung. Somit wird hier stärker als in vielen anderen Blättern der romantische Lebenszusammenhang deutlich. Hier grenzt sich Hasse auch von seinem Lehrer ab, denn wo Richter den Menschen und seine Einnistung in der Natur und seine Suche nach einem Lebensraum zum Thema wählt, da richtet Hasse den Fokus bereits deutlich auf die Tierwelt. Doch auch Hasses Arbeitsweise lässt sich in diesem wichtigen Aquarell vortrefflich studieren. Für ihn war die Linie das bestimmende Gestaltungselement seiner Kunst. Die farbige Überarbeitung diente mehr der Akzentuierung und so scheint in allen Partien der Strich der Feder markant durch die dünn aufgetragene Aquarellierung hindurch. Auch hierin unterscheidet sich Hasse von Richter, denn der Ältere hat zwar auch die Aquarellfarbe sanft und in Verbindung mit der Linie aufgetragen. Doch bei Hasse wird die Federlinie selbst zu einem Tonwert, wie besonders in der Wasseroberfläche auf unserem Blatt zu erkennen ist. Durch diese Betonung erhält das Aquarell eine bestechende Klarheit. Dass Hasse aber auch das subtile Farbspiel mit der reinen Aquarellfarbe meisterhaft beherrschte, präsentiert er in den duftigen Partien im Himmel und im Hintergrund.

        THE PARRICIDE: OR, THE YOUTH'S CAREER OF CRIME

      New York: Williams Brothers, 24 Ann Street,. 1847. Octavo, pp. [1-4] [1] 2-180, text printed in double columns, twenty-two wood engravings designed by George Standfast,. contemporary rebinding in three-quarter leather with marbled boards,. Serious damp stains to fore-edges of endpapers and first three and. last seven leaves of text block (this does not affect the readability. of the text, nor has it damaged the structure of the paper), fore-. edge margins on pages 124-125 trimmed close, affecting line ends. (this is due to slippage of plates while in the press, not a binder's. error), a good, sound copy. (#118838). First U.S. edition. Probably originally issued in paper wrappers. One of the books that put the dreadful in "penny dreadful." A quite scarce "blood," by the most popular writer of mid-nineteenth-century England, first published in twenty-three parts by J. Dicks (Reynolds's own company) in London in the same year (beginning in January 1847). THE PARRICIDE is apparently a reworking ("revised and expanded" according to Bleiler) of Reynolds's THE YOUTHFUL IMPOSTER (1835), his first novel. Standfast's wonderfully lurid illustrations (physical violence, abduction, rape, bondage and more) compliment the text. There is a copy of this Williams Brothers edition at the American Antiquarian Society. OCLC reports no holdings. Waite, The Quest for Bloods, p. 89.

        Lays of Ancient Rome

      1847. A Majestical 'Sunken-Panel' BindingBy Sangorski and Sutcliffe[SANGORSKI & SUTCLIFFE, binders]. MACAULAY, Thomas Babington. Lays of Ancient Rome. With illustrations, original and from the antique, drawn on wood by George Scharf, Jun. London: Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans, 1847. First Illustrated Edition. Octavo (8 1/16 x 6 7/16 inches; 205 x 163 mm.). 210., [2, adverts] pp. Extra wood-engraved title, wood-engraved text illustrations, and head- and tailpieces. Original illustrated paper wrappers bound in at the rear.Bound ca. 1910 in chestnut brown crushed morocco, gilt and inlaid, by Sangorski & Sutcliffe (stamp-signed on rear turn-in), covers with architectural gilt frame enclosing an inlaid sunken panel of blue-gray morocco, that on the upper cover densely stippled in gilt and inlaid with a Roman helmet and weapons within an olive wreath, that on lower cover with gilt tooled inlaid shield and bows and arrows; raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with floral centerpiece, sky blue morocco doublures enclosed by a frame of brown morocco tooled with multiple gilt rules and decorative rolls and with floral corner-pieces, matching blue morocco endleaves with double gilt rule border. The edges are gilt and beautifully gauffered with olive branches and decorative borders. Housed in the full dark green morocco, silk-lined and padded drop-front box (a little worn).This notably masculine binding covers the first illustrated edition of historian, essayist, and post Thomas Babington Macaulay?'s poetic retelling of stories from ancient Roman history. With this ?"Lay of Ancient Rome,?" originally published in 1842 and its many subsequent editions, Macaulay (1800-59) acted on the hypothesis that the early books of the ancient Roman historian Livy (64 or 59 B.C.-17 A.D.) were based upon long-lost oral poetry that had been rendered into prose. With the goal of returning Livy?'s stories to their original form, he expressed them in ballads for readers of English. With imagination and careful execution, our animated binding clearly reflects the volume?'s contents. The upper cover displays familiar symbols of ancient Rome: the fasces (the bundle of rods with projecting axe), the prominent abbreviation ?"SPQR?" (standing for ?"the Senate and the People of Rome?"), and the galea (the helmet of the Roman soldier). The lower panel continues the display of power with a decorative shield and quiver of arrows. Each panel is framed by Neoclassical motifs, and the whole projects the strength and majesty that was Rome. The illustrations here are by George Scharf (1820-95), English art critic, illustrator, and director of the National Portrait Gallery.

Author was a Canadian born missionary and parish priest who worked extensively with the indigenous people of Quebec, Canada. The present treatise contains chant masses in the Montagnais dialect of the North American Indians which was was disseminated amongst the inhabitants of various missions including those at Saguenay and Tadoussac. Pilling Algonquian p. 122; Ayer Indian Linguistics Montagnais 10; Staton/Tremaine Supplement 5343; Sabin 21436.Later edition published in 1856. Flavien Durocher (1800-1876) was a noted Sulpician, Oblate of Mary Immaculate, missionary and parish priest. "After studying at the college of Montreal from 1818 to 1820, Flavien Durocher taught there until 1823; on 20 September of that year he was ordained priest. He was appointed assistant priest at Notre-Dame de Montréal, then at Trois-Rivières, and in 1827 he joined the Sulpicians, who received him as a member the following year. He resumed teaching at Montreal (1827-29), then became assistant priest on the Indian reserve of Lac-des-Deux-Montagnes (Oka); there until 1843 he gave his services to the Algonkins, for whom he had some religious works printed. As he wanted to devote his efforts more completely to spreading the gospel among the Indians, he entered the noviciate of the Oblates at Longueuil (Chambly County) in 1843, and was sent a year later to the residence of Saint-Alexis in Grande-Baie (Grande-Baie, Chicoutimi County). Appointed superior in 1849, he was entrusted with the supervision of 14 missions among the whites and eight among the Montagnais at Chicoutimi, at Lac-Saint-Jean, and at the king's posts on the banks of the St Lawrence and as far as Labrador. He had thus to cover a territory of more than 200 leagues. For these Indians he composed books of prayer and built chapels, particularly at Bersimis. At this time the Oblates considered that they would be better situated at Quebec, even for spreading the gospel among the Indians. They left their Saguenay residence in 1853 and took over the Saint-Sauveur chapel, which had been built by Abbé Zéphirin Charest and which was inaugurated on 29 June 1853. Durocher was appointed director of the new residence (1853-73). Following the fire of 14 Oct. 1866 the mission of Saint-Sauveur was made into a parish, and by the efforts of Flavien Durocher, who was nominated parish priest, the church and the schools rose once more from their ashes. This work did not prevent him from retaining his interest in the Indian missions - the residence of Escoumains, and that of Bersimis, which was controlled by Quebec. Almost every year he visited the Lac-Saint-Jean mission, and worked towards the establishment of missions among the Naskapis in the interior of Labrador and on Ungava Bay. Durocher was a high-spirited, persistent, and devout man, and was regarded as a zealous minister by several generations of worshippers at Saint-Sauveur, of which he was parish priest from 1867 to 1876. A lake and township in the province of Quebec bear his name, and a monument has been erected in his honour in the city of Quebec" [See: "Dictionary of Canadian Biography Online"]. Montagnais Indians is "the collective designation of a number of bands speaking dialects of a common language of Algonquian stock, and ranging over the sores of the St. Lawrence River and Gulf, from about the St. Maurice River to Cape Whittle, and inland to about the main divide at the heads of the rivers. They are closely allied and considerably intermixed with the cognate Nascapee who wander generally farther inland in the interior of the Labrador Peninsula but frequent the same mission and trading stations along the St. Lawrence. Among the Montagnais bands or tribes, when Champlain first met them at the mouth of the Saguenay, in 1603, were the Attikamegue, or 'Whitefish', about the head of the St. Maurice; the Kakouchac, or 'Porcupine' on Lake St. John; the Tadousac about the mouth of the Saguenay; the Bersamite, farther east; the Papinchois, north of the last-named; the Oumamiwek, father east, along the St. Lawrence; the Chisedec, about the Bay of Seven Islands. They were without agriculture or pottery, subsisting entirely by hunting and fishing. Polygamy was common, with divorce at will, descent being held in the female line. Their dwellings, as well as their canoes, were of birchbark or brushwood. They were good tempered, patient, peaceable, honest, and musical under instruction. The Montagnais obtained their first knowledge of Christianity at Tadousec, a French trading post. Regular missionary work was begun among them by the Recollet, Fr. Jean d'Albeau, in 1615. Ten years later the Jesuits were invited to help. Fr. Jean de Quen, S.J., established the mission at Tadousec in 1640; later, stations were erected by the Jesuits at Gaspé and Trois-Rivières. The Iroquois raids drove them from the St. Lawrence, and a smallpox epidemic, in 1670, greatly reduced them, practically destroying the Attikamegue. In consequence, the Montagnais began to resort to the mission at Sillery, near Quebec. The whole tribe is now civilized and Catholic, except for forty-eight officially reported (1909) as Anglican. They still depend mainly on fur trade for subsistence, but also work at lumbering, and the making of canoes, snow-shoes, and moccasins. A few of them are successful farmers. Apart from drunkenness, they are moral, devout, industrious, and said to be "improving every year". Their largest settlements are at Point Bleue, on the west shore of St. John, Bersimis, Seven Islands, Romain, and Mingan. Their total number is probably at least 2500. Father Pierre Laure, S.J. (d. 1738), compiled a grammar, dictionary, and other works on the Montagnais language, most of which are still in manuscript" [See: "The Catholic Encyclopedia" online].

        Selbstbildnis an der Lithographiepresse

      1847. Bleistift auf Papier, unten rechts signiert: "Julius Adam", verso Zeichnung zweier Spielzeugsoldaten, 25,4 x 19,4 cm. Professionell unter säurefreiem Museumspassepartout montiert.. Julius Adams Vater Albrecht Adam (1786-1862) gehört neben Wilhelm von Kobell, Peter Heß oder Dietrich Monten zu den wichtigsten Schlachtenmalern im vorrevolutionären Deutschland. 1812 wird er von seinem Dienstherren Eugene de Beauharnais nach Russland berufen, um dort den (vermeintlich) ruhmreichen Feldzug Napoleons bildlich zu würdigen. In dieser Zeit als embedded artist' entstehen zahlreiche Skizzen, die Albrecht Adam später, von 1827 bis 1833, in seine lithographische Folge Voyage pittoresque et militaire de Willenberg en Prusse jusqu'a Moscou fait en 1812 pris sur le terrain meme umwandeln wird. Diese 95 Lithographien sorgen nicht nur für Adams weit verbreitetes Ansehen als vorzüglicher Schlachtenmaler, sondern legen auch den Grundstein für den Erfolg der ganzen Familie Adam. Die Söhne Benno, Franz, Eugen und Julius werden in den Ausbau des Familien-Kunst-Unternehmens mit einbezogen. Bei Ausbruch des Italienisch-Österreichischen Krieges 1848 zog es Albrecht Adam wieder auf die Schlachtfelder, diesmal in Begleitung seines Sohnes Eugen. Sie planten, den Kampf des österreichischen Heeres in einer der Voyage pittoresque von 1827 entsprechenden und ebenbürtigen Form zu verewigen. In das Projekt wird die gesamte Adam-Factory' mit eingebunden: Albrecht und Eugen liefern die Vorlagen, Benno, Franz und Julius übernehmen die Ausarbeitung der Lithographien. 1849 erscheint das erste Heft der 24 Blätter umfassenden Folge und hier kommt nun der 28 Jahre alte Julius ins Spiel. Als siebtes Kind geboren, legte er 1847 die Prüfung zum Lithographen ab und bildete sich in Senefelders Geschäft weiter. Seit 1848 hat er eine Lizenz für eine eigene Druckerei, die er sich umgehend in der "Adamei", dem weitläufigen Landgut der Familie, einrichtet. Allerdings währte seine lithographische Selbstständigkeit nicht lange, denn Benno übernahm bald die Geschicke des Geschäfts. Julius' Gespür für die Kunst scheint stärker als jenes für die Betriebswirtschaft gewesen zu sein. Allerdings führte ihn sein stets gepflegtes Interesse an chemischen Experimenten ab 1861 zur Zusammenarbeit mit dem bayerischen Hofphotographen Joseph Albert und zur Entwicklung des Lichtdruckes, der dann unter dem Namen "Albertotypie" weite Verbreitung fand. Unser Selbstbildnis zeigt Julius' hohe Begabung. Mit wunderbar variablem Bleistiftstrich gelingt ihm die Modellierung der räumlichen Tiefe ebenso, wie die präzise Akzentuierung der Gesichtszüge. Der Wechsel zwischen weich und hart sowie flüchtig und detailliert verleiht dem Blatt eine spontane Lebendigkeit. Interessant ist das Selbstverständnis, das aus dieser Darstellung spricht. Nicht der Künstler im Atelier ist hier gezeigt, nicht der Graphiker beim Zeichnen auf den Stein. Es ist die handwerkliche Tätigkeit, die dominiert. Pinsel und Stift haben mit der Walze, dem Lappen und dem Spachtel die Plätze getauscht. Die Ernsthaftigkeit und die Konzentration aber sind von diesem Attributwechsel nicht betroffen. Das Verständnis der lithographischen Herstellung als eigene Kunst kommt hier deutlich zum Vorschein und zeigt sich schließlich auch in den meisterhaften Drucken, die Julius' Werkstatt verließen.
