        MINISTERE DE LA GUERRE. Compte général de l'administration de la justice militaire pendant l'année 1844.

      1847 - Paris, Imprimerie Royale, avril 1847. Grand in-quarto (229 X 300) chagrin rouge à grain long (reliure de l'époque) ; 42 pages. IMPORTANTE SOURCE JUDICIAIRE SUR L'APPLICATION DE LA JUSTICE MILITAIRE EN 1844. Un rapport du ministère de la Guerre à Louis-Philippe, daté de décembre 1833, rappelle l'utilité de ce tableau statistique : « c'est un besoin de notre époque d'appeler un examen attentif sur toutes les parties de l'administration, de recueillir et de coordonner les faits pour en tirer d'utiles enseignements, et d'exposer au grand jour de la publicité les résultats obtenus. Ceux que présente l'administration de la justice militaire m'ont paru propres à exercer une influence salutaire sur l'application des lois, et à compléter, sous un de ses rapports les plus importants, la connaissance de l'état de la justice criminelle en France. » Parallèlement aux Comptes généraux de l'administration de la justice criminelle et civile, publiés par le ministère de la Justice sous forme d'un volume annuel de 1827 à 1974, le ministère de la Guerre fut chargé de rédiger annuellement le Compte général de l'administration de la justice militaire. SUPERBE EXEMPLAIRE dans une reliure décorée rappelant les productions de Thouvenin ou Bozérian, probablement réalisée par l'atelier de reliure de l'Imprimerie Impériale. FINE COPY.

      Philadelphia. 1847.. Folding handcolored pocket map, measuring 24 1/2 x 30 1/4 inches. In original 12mo. gilt cloth folder. Minor rubbing and soiling to cloth cover. A few small tears and losses at several folds. Minor toning and foxing, some faint offsetting. Very good. In a half morocco and cloth clamshell box, spine gilt. The fourth edition of Tanner's important map of Mexico, after the first of 1825 which was taken from his 1822 "Map of North America." The map shows all of Mexico and the majority of the American Southwest, with insets providing a "Table of Distances," a "Statistical Table," and a map of roads from Vera Cruz to Alvarado. This edition is modified only slightly from the third edition, second issue (1846), which played an important and controversial role in the war with Mexico and conflicting claims to territory near San Diego. "Finally, H.S. Tanner published the 'Fourth Edition 1847' and the 'Fifth Edition 1847' of his Map of Mexico. An insert of the harbor of Vera Cruz has been added, but in what is now the United States the only changes appear to be the inclusion of a line showing Kearny's route to Santa Fe and some alteration in the colored areas showing the extreme northern limits of New Mexico" - Wheat. WHEAT TRANSMISSISSIPPI III, p.48, no. 554. PHILLIPS MAPS, p.409 (another ed).

        Fuller's computing telegraph. Volvelle plus text & plate (text & plate extensively repaired)

      New York, 1847. Fuller, John Emory (1799-1878). Fuller&#39;s computing telegraph [cover title]. Telegraphic computer, a most wonderful and extraordinary instrument, by which business questions, of every possible variety, are instantly performed. . . [text]. Text plus separate double-sided volvelle engraved by George G. Smith, mounted on heavy cardboard, containing "Fuller&#39;s Time Telegraph" on one side and "Palmer&#39;s Computing Scale" on the other. [22]pp. plus portion of folding lithographed table, entitled "Analytical table of mechanical movements." New York: John E. Fuller, [1847]. Text measures 276 x 276 mm.; volvelle measures 286 x 285 mm. Original cloth, back cover lacking, front cover worn at corners. Volvelle a bit worn at corners and edges, light soiling, but generally in very good condition. Text and plate extensively restored, margins of several leaves chipped with some loss of text, large portion of lithographed plate lacking. Boxed. <p>Fuller&#39;s "Time Telegraph" was a circular nonlogarithmic slide rule, designed by Fuller in 1844 and intended for calculating the number of days or weeks between any two given dates. The title reflected the fascination with the new high-speed telegraphic technology, implying high speed in calculation. On the other side is a later, improved edition (Feazel&#39;s issue 4) of "Palmer&#39;s Computing Scale," the copyright of which had been purchased by Fuller in 1844 or 1845 (Feazel, "Palmer&#39;s computing scale," Journal of the Oughtred Society 3: 9-17; see pp. 11-15). </p><p>This item represents a very early use of the word "computer" for a machine rather than a person. Until the invention of electronic computers in 1945, the term "computer" usually referred to a person who compiled mathematical tables with or without mechanical assistance. Sometimes the term referred to "lightning calculators" who performed remarkably fast computations in their heads. During the first decade of electronic computing, the term was apparently used interchangeably for people and machines. By about 1960 the word was generally applied only to machines.

        Valley towards Saltillo, From near the base of "Palace Hill," at Monterey (Looking to the S. West) [No. 3 of a Series]

      G. & W. Endicott, New York 1847 - From Whiting's "Army Portfolio," a very scarce series of Mexican War views, which is not only one of the primary visual records of the conflict, but also a fine topographical work that accurately recorded the area at a crucial turning point in its history. "The rarest lithographs of the war" (Tyler). According to Whiting family tradition, the work was limited to no more than 24 sets (quoted by Goodspeed's of Boston: "The Month at Goodspeed's Book Shop" vol. XXI, nos. 2-3, Nov-Dec. 1959, p. 43). In late 1845, General Taylor's army was camped at Corpus Christi, Texas. In January 1846, they advanced to the United States side of the Rio Grande, where they remained until May, and then marched on to the strongly fortified city of Monterey, which was taken in September. Whiting's work documents this campaign. Although he originally intended to continue the series beyond five plates, the original drawings for the additional plates were lost aboard a steamboat that sank in the Mississippi. Daniel Powers Whiting was born in Troy, New York, and graduated in 1832 from the U.S. Military Academy, where he received formal training as a topographical artist. He was assigned to the 7th U.S. Infantry, with which he served in various garrisons before being promoted to captain in the spring of 1845. During the Mexican War, he served in the army of General Zachary Taylor and was made major "for gallant and meritorious conduct" in the battles of Fort Brown, Monterey, Vera Cruz, and Cerro Gordo. After the war, he fought the Seminoles, joined the Utah expedition of 1859, served in various garrisons in Missouri and Kansas, and completed frontier duty in the Indian Territory. During the Civil War, he commanded at Fort Garland, Colorado (1861-1862), was a member of the Board of Examination at Annapolis (1862-1863), and commanded at Fort Mifflin, Pennsylvania (1864). At the time of his retirement for "disability resulting from long and faithful service," he was Lieutenant-Colonel of the 6th Infantry. Cf. America on Stone, p. 175; cf. Eberstadt 162, 910; cf. Streeter Sale 275; cf. Tyler, The Mexican War , pp. 24-45. Tinted lithograph, engraved by C. Parsons after Whiting. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling and a 1 3/4" loss in the lower left corner of the sheet. Trimmed on all sides.

I am sanguine for our getting up to the hundred thousand, including the first issue of the complete book. You shall hear from me about the Frontispiece, very shortly. I will take care of it, without loss of time. It is not worth while, I think, to send any presentation copies of the parts. But I shall be glad to have a couple myself, always, regularly, and promptly. Will you mention to your book-keeper that in case he should meet a fair copy of our accounts to last Christmas, walking about anywhere, I should be glad if he will give her my compliments, and say she may rely upon a welcome, whenever she is disposed to come towards this part of the town. Faithfully yours always [Signed with flourish] Charles Dickens Edward Chapman, Esquire A fine Dickens letter, to his publisher Edward Chapman, who originated the notion of publishing Pickwick in parts, concerning his ambitions for publication of the Cheap Edition of the Works. The Cheap Edition, published in weekly numbers and in 54 monthly parts (1847-1852), began with Pickwick (frontispiece by C.R. Leslie) and remained in print for decades, securing Dickens' place in the popular imagination. The letter, which figured in the Wright sale in 1899, has been in a private collection for more than 50 years, hence its citation in the Letters only from the sale catalogue. Dombey and Son, published 1846-8, sold 35,000 copies in parts - here Dickens demonstrates the colossal ambition that would establish him as "the greatest Englishman of his generation" (Swinburne).

        Manuscript medical ledger,

      1847-54, Dover, OH 1847 - [Slingluff, Joseph(?)]. Manuscript medical ledger. Ca. 450pp., the first 137 with manuscript page numbers. Dover, Ohio, September 1847 - August 1854. 385 x 160 mm. Original reverse calf stamped in black, worn and rubbed. One leaf (pp. 46-47) torn out, light soiling and toning, upper portion of front flyleaf cut away but a very good example. Several manuscript sheets with text and figures laid in.The manuscript ledger of an extremely active physician and landowner in Dover, Ohio, most likely Dr. Joseph Slingluff, who began his medical practice at Dover in 1828 and served as the town's first mayor when it was incorporated in 1842. Slingluff belonged to one of Dover's founding families: The initial settlement land (2175 acres) was purchased from Col. James Morrison of Kentucky in 1806 by Jesse Slingluff and his brother-in-law Christian Deardorff. The Deardorff and Slingluff names feature prominently in our ledger. Dover's prosperity increased dramatically with the building of the Erie Canal, as the canal's only tolling station was located there; the population grew from 46 in 1820 to nearly 600 in 1840, and the town became a flour mill and warehouse center. This prosperity is reflected in Dr. Slingluff's ledger, which records that he often saw more than 10 patients a day; the ledger also contains records of real estate owned by the doctor (including a small plat map) and the construction costs of his house. At the back are two pages recording difficult obstetric cases. Mansfield, The History of Tuscarawas County, Ohio (1884), p. 543 and passim.

        A History of the Reigning Family of Lahore, with some Account of the Jummoo Rajahs, their Seik Soldiers and their Sirdars; edited by with notes on Malcolm, Prinsep, Lawrence, Steinbach, McGregor, and the Calcutta Review.

      Calcutta: W. Thacker and Co. 1847 - Octavo (224 × 137 mm). Recent half calf to style, red morocco label, raised bands with gilt milled roll, gilt lozenges to the compartments, marbled sides, brown endpapers. Contents a little browned, but overall very good. Folding map frontispiece and 5 plates, double-sided folding genealogical table. First edition. Institutionally well-represented, but only one copy at auction in the last 40 years. Smyth "had been in India for twenty-six years and could claim to be well-informed" (Khurana, British Historiography on the Sikh Power in the Punjab, p96). He explains in his introduction that he was encouraged to write the book by George Broadfoot, at the time Agent to the Governor-General of the North West Frontier, an appointment which "was partly the cause and partly the result of the conviction that a war with the Sikhs could no longer be avoided," the purpose of the work being to promote the idea of the inevitability of conflict. The war broke out before Smyth could complete the book, Broadfoot had been killed at Ferozeshahr, so the context at the time of its publication was inevitably entirely altered. Smyth's personal experiences of the war were such that he "wrote his account of the proceedings of the British with the same acid pen as he had used against the Sikhs. This rendered the book 'infamous', but at the same time it went a long way to exposing the hollowness of the British victory in the First Anglo-Sikh War " Smyth was thorough in his research, he had spoken with Broadfoot on the subject, obtained translations of a number of indigenous sources, and had read Malcolm, Prinsep, Lawrence, and Steinbach, also being "conversant with some of the leading journals." But his main source were "the notes of a Captain Gardner [Alexander Gardner, Gordana Khan] of the Seik Artillery, who has for several years past supplied important information to the British Government" (Introduction). The questionable accuracy of parts of Smyth's account can be explained "by his undue reliance on Gardner who, though never as wicked as the Calcutta Review tried to make out, was never so dependable as Smyth projects him to be" (Khurana). However, as a document of the development of British understanding of the Sikhs it remains an important historiographical source. This copy somewhat enhanced by copious, contemporary highly opinionated, marginal pencilled comments. The hand is difficult and sometimes the notes slightly faded, but they were evidently added by a soldier familiar with the events and personalities described, and are almost equally acerbic about the British - particularly John Company and the Government - and the Sikhs. The author of the comments was almost certainly with the 50th Regiment, who were in the thick of the action at Mudki, Ferozeshahr, Aliwal and Sobraon, each of the officers of that regiment being marked off in impressive subscribers list. Carmichael Smyth has a claim to great notoriety in being the man whose action in insisting on the issue of the new cartridge cases at Meerut in 1857 struck the first sparks of the Indian Mutiny. A scarce and highly desirable contemporary source on Anglo-Sikh relations.

      [Paris: Fume, ca. 1847] - Though not generally appreciated in his own time, Auguste Raffet (1804- 1860) was later thought to be one of France's great illustrators. "Beraldi made the startling assertion that Raffet's was 'the greatest name of the century in original prints,' adding that this still isn't enough to say. One of the greatest names of French art.'" - Ray, p. 183 The fine watercolors here form a veritable gallery of the French Revolution, and include portraits of Mirabeau; Danton; Charlotte Corday; Robespierre; Marie Antoinette; Marat; C. Desmoulin; St. Just; Talien; Grégoire; Barère, etc 4to. Forty watercolors (39 portraits, 1 device with liberty cap), signed by the artist in lower right or left.

        JANE EYRE: An Autobiography. Edited By Currer Bell

      London Smith, Elder and Co 1847 - 3 volumes. RARE FIRST EDITION of the great masterpiece by Charlotte Bronte. 8vo, in very attractive bindings of full tan calf, the spines richly gilt decorated in compartments between raised gilt decorated bands, the boards gilt framed, two of the spine compartments with contrasting red and green morocco labels gilt lettered and decorated. Publisher's ad catalogue is retained and bound in. [xiii], 303; 304; 304; with the catalogue of advertisements pp. A very fine copy, beautifully preserved and clean throughout. RARE, AND ONE OF THE MOST SOUGHT-AFTER BOOKS OF ENGLISH LITERATURE. JANE EYRE IS NOT ONLY THE FIRST NOVEL PUBLISHED BY CHARLOTTE BRONTE, but is also the first published of the Bronte Sisters. In an amazing year for them, all three published a work in 1847 under a 'Bell' pseudonym. Charlotte's was first, the two others were Emily's Wuthering Heights (published as Ellis Bell) and Anne's Agnes Grey (published as Acton Bell). All three are very scarce indeed. JANE EYRE is especially scarce, the print run of the first edition was approximately only 500 copies. It is a cornerstone book of multiple collections; early novels, English literature, Women's literature. It is a work which helped to define the novel as we know it. With its internalization of action, its focus on the gradual unfolding of Jane's moral and spiritual sensibility it creates a heightened intensity that was previously the domain of poetry and thus it revolutionized the art of fiction. It is also considered a full generation ahead of its time for the individualistic character of Jane and the novel's exploration of classism, sexuality, religion, and what has been coined 'proto-feminism'.

        THE WORKS Comprising: Handley Cross; Hillingdon Hall; Hawbuck Grange; Mr. Sponge's Sporting Tour; "Ask Mamma"; Plain or Ringlets; Mr. Facey Romford's Hounds

      Bradbury & Evans -1888 1847 - Seven volumes, all first editions or first one-volume editions (in the case of the first two titles which were originally published in three). Each finely bound by Zaehnsdorf in full scarlet crushed morocco, with raised bands and elaborate gilt flower motifs to the spine. Gilt borders and decoration to the panels. Silk endpapers with tooled dentelles. A superb fine, handsome set. Each volume illustrated throughout with hand coloured plates, mainly by Leech. Surtees was educated to be a solicitor, but soon began to contribute to the Sporting Magazine, and in 1831 he published a treatise on the law relating to horses and particularly the law of warranty, entitled The Horseman's Manual. In the following year he helped to found the New Sporting Magazine, of which he was the editor for the next five years. To this periodical he contributed between 1832 and 1834 the papers which were afterwards collected and published in 1838 as Jorrocks's Jaunts and Jollities, the humorous sporting experiences of a cockney grocer. The popularity of the character led him to be reintroduced as master of foxhounds in 'Handley Cross' and the subsequent novels. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Chess Player's Chronicle, The

      H Hurst, London 1847 - 422+[viii] pages with diagrams and index. Octavo (8 3/4" x 5 3/4") bound in period cloth with blind stamped covers with gilt insignia, and gilt decoration and lettering to spine. Title in red and green. Volume VIII. (Betts: 7-1) First edition. The Chess Player's Chronicle, founded by Howard Staunton and extant from 1841&#150;56 and 1859&#150;62, was the world's first successful English-language magazine devoted exclusively to chess. Various unrelated but identically or similarly named publications were published until 1902. The earliest chess magazine in any language was the French Le Palamède, published in 1836-39 and 1842-47. In 1837 George Walker introduced an English-language magazine, the Philidoria, that was devoted to "chess and other scientific games". Only six issues of it were published, and it "expired in May, 1838". In 1840 or 1841 Staunton bought the fortnightly magazine The British Miscellany and Chess Player's Chronicle. In 1841 it became The Chess Player's Chronicle. In 1843, the Chess Player's Chronicle became a shilling monthly magazine. Staunton "made the inclusion of a large number of games by himself and other leading players of the day a special feature" of the magazine. He also used the magazine as a forum for attacking others. Staunton was the owner and editor of the magazine until the early 1850s, when he sold it to R.B. O'Brien. O'Brien became editor of the magazine, but was unable to continue its success and discontinued it in 1856 because of financial losses and his own illness. It reappeared in 1859 under the editorship of Ignatz Kolisch, Zytogorski, and Josef Kling, but survived only until July 1862. Thereafter, a number of magazines appeared with the same or similar name (such as Chess Players' Chronicle) appeared. Arthur Skipworth, assisted by William Wayte and Charles Ranken, wrote The Chess Players' Quarterly Chronicle, which was published in York from February 1868 to December 1871. Skipworth, who had left Bilsdale for Tetford Rectory, Horncastle, and John Wisker became the editors of the new The Chess Players' Chronicle in February 1872. Johann Löwenthal began writing for it in 1873. The magazine ran until 1875. In January 1876, it was succeeded by The Chess Player's Chronicle, whose editor-in-chief was J. Jenkin of Helensburgh. Its editorial staff consisted of Jenkin, Skipworth, Ranken, Wayte, and Andrew Hunter of Glasgow. Billed as a "monthly record of provincial chess", it was published at Glasgow, costing sixpence. Its short run under Jenkin's editorship was marked by xenophobia. The February issue stated that the West End Club had "cleared away the disturbing foreign element which infected the Divan" and referring to Wilhelm Steinitz as "the hot-headed little Austrian". Its third and last issue was published in March. The magazine reappeared in January 1877. It was now under Ranken's editorship, assisted by J. Crum, G. B. Fraser, Skipworth, and Wayte. The first issue apologized for "certain offensive statements and insinuations, seriously affecting the honor of some eminent players", and explained that some members of the present editorial staff had only contributed games and other inoffensive material to it in 1875. Ranken continued to edit the magazine until September 1880. In 1881, the title was enlarged to The Chess Player's Chronicle, and Journal of Indoor and Outdoor Sports, and "the magazine's importance in the chess world was no longer the same". None of these magazines compared in quality with what Staunton had achieved, and the success of the British Chess Magazine, by the turn of the century a superb magazine, put an end to the title in 1902. Condition: Corners bumped, earlier owner's stamp to title, some occasional pencil notations, recased with new end papers else a very good copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Contemporary half calf, worn, with gilt spine and marbled edges, signed by P. W. Gærdecken, Copenhagen. Rear cover somewhat broken, corners worn and bumped. Foxing and dampstaining throughout. Minor tear to inner margin on the map. MS dedication to "Hr. justitieraad H. Collin", signatures, old blindstamp. Fiske Icelandic collection p. 516. The eruption of the Icelandic volcano Hekla lasted until the beginning of April 1846 and the ashes reached the Faroe, Shetland and Orkney Islands. Edvard Collin (1808-86) was the son of H. C. Andersen's benefactor Jonas Collin and one of the author's close friends. The friendship between the two was characterized by a cool detachment from Edvard Collin's side, a circumstance which sometimes got on Andersen's nerves, but did not prevent him from making Collin his sole heir and literary executor. Andersen also lies buried with Collin and his wife. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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.

      Philadelphia: S. Augustus Mitchell, 1847. - Folio, (17 3/8 x 14 ½ inches). Vignette title page (toned with one or two spots). Hand-colored lithographed frontispiece "Heights of the Principal Mountains in the World" and "Lengths of the Principal Rivers in the World" (Plate 73), 72 fine lithographed maps with original hand-color in full (lower corner of Plate 14 torn away, occasional spotting and browning). Original publisher's half red roan, marbled boards, lettered in gilt (hinges cracked but holding, overall quite worn with loss). Provenance: Contemporary pen trials to recto of front free endpaper. First published by Mitchell in 1846 after having acquired the rights to Henry Schenk Tanner's "New Universal Atlas" from Carey & Hart who had published editions in 1843 and 1844. However Mitchell changed many of the maps, changed the copperplates to lithography, and then issued the atlas at least once a year until 1850, when he sold the rights to Thomas, Cowperthwait & Company. Thereafter the rights were bought and sold several times, with the atlas being published until at least 1860. "Many maps bear the imprint of S. Augustus Mitchell, and the copyright notice of H. N. Burroughs, or of H. S. Tanner. This atlas is a reissue of Tanner's New Universal Atlas which continued to be published for some years as Mitchell's New Universal Atlas, without reference to Tanner. Includes a map of Oregon and Upper California not called for in the table of contents. [Plate] No. 72, Lengths of the principal rivers in the world [and] Heights of the principal bound as [the] frontispiece. The engraved title page has a vignette, 'First landing of Columbus in the New World.'" Phillips Atlases 797. This copy differs from Phillips's in the following issue points: the map of Oregon and Upper California is in fact listed in the Table of Contents as Plate 36; however, the plate itself is unnumbered and the numbering of the subsequent plates is off by one with respect to the Table of Contents. Here, the frontispiece showing the heights of the world's mountains and the lengths of the world's rivers is numbered 73, rather than 72. Title page bears the 1844 copyright notice of Carey & Hart, but most maps bear that of H. N. Burroughs.

Charting Duncan&#39;s exploration of the kingdom of Dahomey, the book outlines local traditions and culture, the slave trade and the influence of the de Sousa family, as well as the relationship between the Dahomean king and local Mahi leaders. The Royal Geographical Society considered it to have added greatly to contemporary understanding of the interior of Western Africa. Shortly after publication, Duncan returned to Africa with the intention to continue exploring the western region. However, taken ill with fever on the journey back to Dahomey, he died onboard HMS Kingfisher in the Bight of Benin.

      1847. Öl auf Papier, unten rechts signiert und datiert: "W Krause. Fecit. 1847", unten links bezeichnet: "Gyde Fjor (?)", 14 x 19,3 c m. Provenienz: Aus dem Besitz der Deutschen Kaiserin Augusta. Guter Zustand inkl. Rahmen.1847 im Jahre einer schweren Erkrankung entstanden, erschafft der Marinemaler Wilhelm Krause aus der Erinnerung an die angenehmen Tage der Reise nach Norwegen im Jahre 1831 das Bild einer abendlichen Stimmung am Wasser. Die nördliche Landschaft ist in ein rötliches Licht getaucht, die Sonne scheint erst vor wenigen Augenblicken links hinter den Bergen verschwunden zu sein. Krause hatte Anfang der zwanziger Jahre in Dresden bereits in jungen Jahren die Möglichkeit, die Gemälde J. Chr. Dahls zu studieren und so ist in Krauses nordischer Landschaft eine enge Verwandtschaft zu den stimmungsgeladenen Arbeiten des Dänen festzustellen. Doch löst sich der jüngere viel mehr von konkreten topographischen, geologischen und kultur-historischen Bezügen, als es Dahl je tat. Lediglich durch die knappe Inschrift am unteren Bildrand verortet Krause diese Landschaft in Norwegen und auch die Tätigkeit der Personen gibt wenig Aufschluss über eine kulturelle oder geschichtliche Bedeutung dieses Ortes. Ferner legt er wenig Wert auf eine geologisch treue Wiedergabe des Gesteins - der Maler richtet die gesamte Komposition einzig auf die Besonderheit im Ausdruck dieses Naturschauspiels aus. Die sonderbare Wetterstimmung erreicht Krause einerseits durch die Inszenierung des Abendhimmels mit den dramatisch bewegten, hoch aufgetürmten, in Schattierungen von Rot, Orange, Hellgelb und Violett schimmernden Wolken über den bereits verschatteten Bergkegeln am hinteren Ufer des Fjords. Zum anderen steigert er diese eigentümliche Wirkung zusätzlich durch das wohlüberlegt eingesetzte Wechselspiel von Licht und Schatten. Unten, vor dem Fischerboot, spiegelt sich auf der sanft bewegten Wasseroberfläche der letzte Abglanz des vergangenen Tages und lenkt damit die Aufmerksamkeit auf die einfahrenden Fischer. Zugleich setzt Krause damit einen deutlichen Kontrast zu der darüber liegenden Dunkelheit der verschatteten Oberfläche des Sees in Richtung des gegenüberliegenden Ufers mit seinen finsteren Berghängen. Die abendliche Stimmung, die uns Krause hier darbietet, soll nicht Sinnbild der Erschöpfung der Fischer von den Mühen des Tages sein. Der Maler zeigt uns vielmehr eine von solcherlei Alltäglichkeit losgelöste, beinahe unwirklich erscheinende, beseelte Landschaft, in der die Menschen zwar anwesend sind, ihre Tätigkeit jedoch eine marginale Rolle einnimmt. Die dunkle Schroffheit der bergigen Landschaft, die Bewegtheit des bewölkten Himmels, die Wandlung der Natur im vergehenden Tageslicht, die sich aus dem Zwielicht ergebenden Farbeffekte erzeugen eine seltsam phantastische, nahezu traumhafte Atmosphäre.
