        Auf dem Hasliberg bei Meiningen im Berner-Oberland. Bleistift, Aquarell und Deckweiß.

Bildhafte Zeichnung mit sehr differenziert durchgearbeiteter Tiefenwirkung durch unterschiedliche Schaffuren, Aquarell und Deckweißhöhung. Die Darstellung von Gebirgslandschaften zählte zu den bevorzugten Sujets J.G. Steffans, der zu den bedeutendsten Schweizer Landschaftsmalern des 19. Jahrhunderts gehört. Die kleine Landschaft - mit einem Wanderer und Fluß im Vordergrund, baumbestandenem Mittelgebirge und dem Hochgebirge im Hintergrund - vereint alles was eine idealisierte Gebirgslandschaft ausmacht. - Ab 1833 besuchte J. G. Steffan in München zunächst die Zeichenkurse das Polytechnikums und dann die Akademie der Bildenden Künste. Beeinflußt von Carl Rottmann und den Niederländern, wandte er sich der realistischen Landschaftsmalerei zu. Steffans Atelier wurde zum Mittelpunkt der Schweizer Künstler in München. Mit zahlreichen Kollegen unternahm er Studienreisen in die Schweizer Alpen. - Aus Sammlung K.E. Hasse, Göttingen (Lugt 860), recto mit dem Stempel. - Sehr sauber und farbfrisch erhalten.

        Results of Astronomical Observations Made During the Years 1834, 5, 6, 7, 8, at the Cape of Good Hope; Being the Completion of a Telescopic Survey of the Whole Surface of the Visible Heavens Commence idewittn 1825. London, Smith, Elder and Co., 1847

      - INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR, A FOLIO FIRST EDITION of "the first great star-atlas of the southern hemisphere' (Norman Catalogue 1056). "With this monumental survey of the stars of the southern hemisphere, Herschel completed the task begun by his father William, who fifty years earlier had catalogued the northern celestial hemisphere. Using a twenty foot reflecting telescope, which he erected just south of Cape Town, Herschel swept the whole of the southern sky, cataloging nebulae, cluster and binary stars, carrying out the counts of over 68,000 stars. . . he made detailed drawings and maps" (Honeyman 1663). "Herschel stands almost alone in his attempt to grapple with the dynamical problems presented by star-clusters, and his analysis of the Magellanic Clouds was decisive as to the status of nebulæ" (Oxford DNB). The story of the publication of this work is important, particularly given that this copy is inscribed in the author's hand, noted as such in print, and that no other such copies have been recorded. See scans attached. In print it reads "Presented by Algernon Duke of Northumberland to" and then in Herschel's hand "Professor Robinson, New York, With the Author's Compliments." Additionally, the dedication page notes in text that "This work is gratefully inscribed by the author." "By the end of 1842 [Herschel] had performed without assistance the computations necessary for the publication [in this work] of his Cape observations. In September 1843 the letterpress was 'fairly begun,' and after some delays the work appeared in 1847, at the cost of the Duke of Northumberland, in a large quarto volume, entitled 'Results of Astronomical Observations made during the years 1834-8 at the Cape of Good Hope.' Besides the catalogues of nebulæ and double stars, it included profound discussions of various astronomical topics, and was enriched with over sixty exquisite engravings. He insisted in it upon the connection of sun-spots with the sun's rotation, and started the 'cyclonic theory' of their origin. [Herschel] investigated graphically the distribution of nebulæ, but fluctuated in his views as to their nature. Regarding them in 1825 as probably composed of 'a self-luminous or phosphorescent substance, gradually subsiding into stars and sidereal systems' (Memoirs Royal Astronomical Society, ii. 487), he ascribed to them later a stellar constitution, and finally inclined to suppose them formed of 'discrete luminous bodies floating in a non-luminous medium" (ibid). CONDITION & DETAILS: Folio (13 x 10.25 inches; 325 x 256mm). [12], xx, [452 pp], 17 plates, [6 ii, errata and additions, often lacking]. Ex-libris bearing only a tiny 'withdrawn' stamp on the front pastedown and no other library markings whatsoever. Illustration: 17 plates. The first 13 plates, including the four folding plates, are engraved, the remaining four are lithographed. An inch wide repair to the rear of 3 plates (apparently just to reinforce things at the inner hinge; there are no tears). Binding and Interior: Bound in original maroon blind-stamped publisher's cloth. Rebacked at the spine; gilt-lettered title. Small conservator's repair to the cloth on the rear board. The interior hinges were at some point professionally reinforced. Minor scuffing and edgewear at the tips. Tightly and very solidly bound. Small tear at the upper inner margin of the frontispiece. Scattered light toning and foxing throughout. Handsome wide margins. Very good condition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        TLS] AN EARLY PATENT ON AN AIRPLANE RESPONDED TO BY ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL

      - [TLS]Alexander Graham Bell (1847-1922). Carbon Copy typed letter measuring 8" x 10 ½" signed by Bell dated Oct. 7, 1907, Baddeck, N.S. [Nova Scotia] Mr. Bell is thanking Mr. Edward M. La Penotiere for the copy of his patent dated July 30 1907, No. 861740 and Bell states "I shall peruse it with interest". The letter does not describe what the patent was, but a news clipping from the Minneapolis Journal dated August 11, 1907 states "A Minneapolis Man Patents an Airship like a Bird’s Wing" and shows a drawing of the airship. It is interesting too, that the letter with Mr. Bell’s reply was dated Oct. 7, 1907, the same day Mr. Bell, with the help of his wife, founded Aerial Experiment Association (AEA). It was headed by Bell, with four young men as founding members. [Patent # 861740 found in the Official Gazette of the United States Patent Office, Volume 29, July 30]

        Histoire de la rÃ?volution franÁaise

Small printed label affixed to each front cover: P. Sauvat, Libraire...Bordeaux. Spine of Volume I expertly and almost invisibly repaired, a few short splits to spine of Volume V, tiny piece of inside front wrapper affixed to lower margin of half-title of Volume IV. Some light foxing and occasional marginal staining. Overall, an excellent copy. Housed in two cloth clamshell cases.ìDuring the same years when Macaulay was fixing the Whig image of the Glorious Revolution in the minds of the English public, Michelet [1798-1874] was giving to the French radicals the most colourful and fervent justification of the French Revolution. Ten years after Carlyle had painted it in lurid colours as the twilight of the gods, Michelet hailed it as the birth of a new age. Michelet was a sounder historian than the Scotóhe based his Histoire Romaine, 1831, on Niebuhr, and the section of his Histoire de France, 1833-67, dealing with the Middle Ages is an outstanding example of romantic historiography. From 1840, if not earlier, Michelet turned an outspoken anti-clerical; his violent attacks on the Jesuits, the Church of Rome and Christianity itself cost him his professorial chairs under Guizot as well as Napoleon III, who also ejected him from the state archives. In all his writings Michelet came very near the fulfilment of his ideal, namely that history should be ëla rÃ?surrection de la vie intÃ?graleí. His ëHistory of the French Revolutioní is a sustained panegyric of radical democracy: ëfrom the first page to the lastí, he said, ëthere is only one heroóthe peopleí. Neither his openly anti-clerical and anti-royalist partisanship nor his many inaccuracies can detract from the grandiose narrative which has secured the book a permanent place in French literature such as none of his successors has attainedî (Printing and the Mind of Man).Printing and the Mind of Man 324.HBS 65698.$10,000

        An Overland Journey round the World , during the Years 1841 and 1842

      Philadelphia: Lea and Blanchard, 1847. Octavo, two volumes in one; some light foxing, early ownership inscription on title, but a very good copy in original red cloth. The scarce first American edition which, according to Forbes, may have preceded the London edition. Sir George Simpson was governor of the Hudson's Bay Company in North America, and his acute observations on this journey undertaken for his company make this a work of continuing value. He left London in 1841, and went by way of Halifax and Boston to Canada, crossing by canoe to Vancouver. He made two visits to Sitka, and his material on Alaska is significant. After spending some time in California, he continued on to Hawaii, where the company had a store, and his account of the islands 'is important for its full and accurate report of business and political conditions in Honolulu' (Forbes). Simpson was sympathetic to the government of Hawaii, and he advised Kamehameha III on the formation of a "commission" , consisting of himself, William Richards and Haalilio, to travel to Washington, Paris and London, to confirm the Hawaiian independence from the three great powers. Simpson returned to London overland across Russia, arriving some twenty months after his departure.

        SURGICAL OPERATIONS PERFORMED DURING INSENSIBILITY , Produced by the Inhalation of Sulphuric Ether (running title)

      Lancet, 1847. Disbound. Near Fine. [1]-26 pages complete. An extract from a bound volume, with a thin white tape applied to the spine. The first publication of the use of ether in a surgical operation (a keystone in the history of surgical anaesthesia) was published in the Boston Medical and Surgical Journal in November 1846. There were several American reprints in the next month, each with minor changes. Jacob Bigelow (the father of JH Bigelow) wrote on 28 November to Francis Boott of London, enclosing the text of the first publication. The article offered here, published in The Lancet, was the first British reprinting of the initial announcement and included both Bigelow's letter and the original paper. Appended was a letter from Robert Liston on his use of ether during an amputation of the knee. This records the first operation under ether anesthesia in Europe, conducted a mere 2 days after Liston learned of the procedure. (Centennial of Surgical Anesthesia, Fulton & Stanton, IV-5). Disbound.

        Narrative of the Surveying Voyage of H.M.S. Fly , commanded by Captain F.P. Blackwood, R.N. in Torres Strait, New Guinea, and other islands of the Eastern Archipelago, during the years 1842-1846

      London: T. & W. Boone, 1847. Two volumes, octavo, with many engravings (full-page and textual), and a folding map at the end of each volume; a fine copy, complete with all advertisement leaves including the half-sheet advertisement for Leichhardt's Journal, in the original and unfaded blue-grey blind-stamped cloth. The voyage of HMS Fly. First edition: a fine copy, in original condition, of this important surveying voyage of coastal Australia. Jukes' account is particularly important for his description of the Queensland coast, the Great Barrier Reef, and the Torres Strait, and includes an impressively detailed map of the north-east coast from Endeavour River north to New Guinea. The Fly, Captain Blackwood, sailed from Falmouth on 11 April 1842 with the cutter Bramble. Jukes sailed as naturalist to the expedition, and with his captain's consent wrote the official narrative. The survey of Torres Strait and of the Great Barrier Reef, as well as the various New Guinea explorations, were all of great importance. The proper scientific understanding of the Barrier Reef could not begin until the completion of the survey, which Jukes charted for the first time in detail. Jukes' own close examination of the reef was also significant, and his chapter on the subject 'is an invaluable record. His observations strongly supported Darwin's theory of the formation of coral reefs…' (Davidson). Indeed, Jukes' interest in coral formation is neatly summarised by the account's terrific opening line, 'I landed for the first time in my life on a coral island.' Ingleton notes: 'the Admiralty decided in 1841 to have the Great Barrier Reefs explored and to have the gaps surveyed in order that some means might be devised for marking the most eligible of these openings, in order that they could be recognised in due time and passed through in comparative safety… The expedition was noteworthy for being the first to be despatched to Australia on a purely surveying mission…' (Charting a Continent, pp. 61-66).

        Nagasaki Miyage [Souvenir of Nagasaki]

      Nagasaki, 1847. 232 x 159 mm., 40 double leaves in the Japanese style; with altogether four full-page and 12 double-page woodcut illustrations; sewn in original pale blue paper wrapper with titling label; stitching loose but in excellent condition; newly preserved in a handsome oblong bookform box of dark blue quarter morocco, spine banded and gilt. Japanese woodcut depictions of Dutch traders in Nagasaki. This beautiful woodblock guide to Nagasaki and its sights is the first such book of its kind: it concentrates on the Dutch (and Chinese) traders in the city, in the pre-Meiji period when except under special circumstances Japanese people were forbidden to travel abroad and the few foreigners allowed into the country were confined to certain compounds within Japan. The merchants of the VOC or Dutch East Indies Company were exotic figures: their confinement to Deshima which was shared between Dutch and Chinese trading houses, meant that they would barely have been seen by most residents of Nagasaki, let alone other Japanese of the period. The depiction of the exotic foreigners in the Japanese decorative arts began in the early-eighteenth century, and the style in which they are shown is surprisingly consistent. Jack Hillier has noted of this publication that 'although separate-sheet prints of the Dutch and Chinese traders were produced in some numbers in Nagasaki from c. 1750, the earliest book on the town and its foreign commerce published in the town itself did not appear until 1847'. The illustrations include a woodcut map of the harbour showing a Dutch vessel, followed by a double-page woodcut showing Chinese traders seated at a table with a servant handing up books to them. Willem van Gulik, who has studied the nineteenth-century depictions of the Dutch residents in Japan, has identified this scene as the library of the Chinese trade settlement south of Deshima. (cf Van Gulik plate 46). Another double-page illustration shows a Dutch merchant in formal stance, his Indonesian servant carrying a decanter and glass on a tray. The figure is identified in Japanese as 'the red-haired man' - a commonly used tag for a Dutchman. Other illustrations include a panoramic view of the Deshima compound, a wonderful double-page view of a Dutch ship in harbour, and a double-page depiction (Van Gulik plates 47a and 47b) of Dutchmen with Japanese courtesans from Maruyama in the dining room of the Chief's residence on Deshima. These women, known as Oranda-yuki ("women that go with the Dutch"), 'were an important source of information on the lifestyle of the Dutch on Deshima'. A delightful portrait of a Dutch woman in evening dress seated in a chair depicts Mimi de Villeneuve, who came to Deshima to join her husband and whose features the Japanese found quite remarkable (cf Van Gulik plate 54 for another). A charming elephant ("Olifant") portrays an animal first brought into the country by the Dutch traders for presentation to the shôgun along with other natural curiosities. Other views of the Nagasaki region depict harbour scenes (including the junk fleet), the ships, bridges, streets and roofs of Nagasaki, river scenes and the surrounding countryside, a procession and a kite festival.

        France Illustrated, Exhibiting its Landscape Scenery, Antiquities , Military and Ecclesiastical Architecture, &c

      Fisher, Son, & Co., n.d. but 1845-, London 1847 - Four volumes, quarto, each with engraved titlepage featuring vignette, 144 full page plates engraved on steel, some very mild offsetting and the occasional mark; a very attractive set in full morocco gift binding, elaborately gilt and embossed, a little rubbed at extremities. Fine steel-engravings of French scenery. A lovely set of one of Allom's lavish topographical works, with the supplemental fourth volume, 'A Summer and Winter in Paris', in a matching binding. This work is not commonly seen complete, as thus. Richly illustrated, the steel engravings, which include many fine views of nineteenth-century France, are drawn by Thomas Allom (1804-1872), an English artist and architect. Although he was a founding member of what became the Royal Institute of British Architects, Allom is chiefly remembered for his many beautiful topographical works, which were often used in such travel books. This series was completed after his early work on Turkey and Asia Minor, but before his perhaps more famous China Illustrated of 1845. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Residence of Twenty-One Years in the Sandwich Islands ; or, The civil, religious and political history of those islands: comprising a particular view of the missionary operations connected with the introduction and progress of Christianity and civilization among the Hawaiian people

      Hartford: Hezekiah Huntington, 1847. Octavo, with steel-engravings; original gilt and blind-stamped leather, small split to lower hinge, with the usual foxing, but a very good copy in the scarcer special binding. Cook responsible for his own fate. 'The most important book on the history of the American Protestant mission in Hawaii during the years 1820-1841, and one of the key books of Hawaiian history…' (Forbes). This is the first edition of one of the most informative books on Hawaii during the early missionary years. Bingham was instrumental in developing the idea that Cook's acceptance of the apparent worship of the Hawaiians in 1779 was largely responsible for his death, writing 'we can hardly avoid the conclusion, that for the direct encouragement of idolatry, and especially for his audacity in allowing himself like the proud and magisterial Herod to be idolized, he was left to infatuation and died by the visitation of God.' Bingham's name crops up everywhere in the history of the period: he arrived in Honolulu in 1820 and spent the following 21 years in missionary work. He quickly learned Hawaiian, and created a written version of the language which he used, with William Ellis, to begin printing in native Hawaiian; he helped his missionary colleagues to translate the Bible into Hawaiian. He received support from the royal family and the travels that he made through the islands with this official sanction enabled him to gather their impressions which appeared in this book written after he finally left for the United States in 1840. Sabin said that it was probably the best work on the Sandwich Islands There were additional Hartford editions in 1848 and 1849 and another one published at Canandaigua, New York, in 1855.

        South Australia Illustrated

      London: Thomas M'Lean, 1847. Large folio, with hand coloured pictorial title-page and 60 hand coloured plates; some slight ageing (as often), but an excellent copy in half dark green morocco, marbled edges and cloth sides. Long term consignment. Sixty handcoloured lithographs of South Australia. George French Angas came to South Australia at the behest of his father, who had established the South Australian Company in 1836. Arriving in 1844, Angas began a series of extensive travels through South Australia, travelling through the Mount Lofty Ranges to the Murray River and down to Lake Coorong, sketching the countryside, native animals, and the customs and dwellings of the local indigenous people. Within months he joined the governor, George Grey, as unofficial artist on his expeditions to the southeast, faithfully sketching and recording the natural beauty of the eight-year-old colony. Angas returned to England in 1846 to publish his views of South Australia and held an exhibition at the Egyptian Hall, Piccadilly, with a view to attracting subscriptions for the publication. The drawings were described by Angas as 'entirely executed on the spot, from Life and Nature', and he claimed they represented 'the Natives, with their Manners and Customs, and the Picturesque Scenery… with unexaggerated truth and fidelity' (Tregenza, George French Angas). The exhibition was highly acclaimed and Angas' publishers began the painstaking process of transferring his original watercolour drawings to lithographic stone. Angas' particular style in depicting scenes of town and bush is instantly recognisable; his sympathetic and knowledgeable observations of the Aborigines and his portrayal of the flora and fauna offer an outstanding romantic interpretation of the Australian landscape. A lovely copy of South Australia Illustrated, George French Angas' greatest achievement, and without doubt one of the most famous and most desirable of Australian colour plate books.

        Message from the President of the United States, to the Two Houses of Congress: at the Commencement of the First Session of the Thirtieth Congress, December 7, 1847. 30th Congress, First Session, Executive Document no. 1.

      Washington: Wendell and Van Benthuysen, 1847. - 8vo., (9 1/8 x 5 ¾ inches). (Light spotting and some browning throughout). 13 fine folding lithographed maps, including those of the major California and New Mexico battles; five folding tables (one or two short tears at mounts, some new folds). Contemporary half deer, marbled paper boards (front cover nearly detached, spine quite worn). Provenance: Original official address label in manuscript to Dudley Marvin (1786-1856), U.S. Representative from New York, tipped in before the title page. Bookseller's label to front pastedown: "Aldredge Book Store Fine Books Dallas." First edition. This is Executive Doc. No. 1, of the Thirtieth Congress, issued for the Senate, and it is a large document, consisting of 1369 pages, plus an appendix relating to the war with Mexico and other western affairs. In addition to the important maps, it contains diplomatic correspondence, military reports, statistical records, occupation records, and other papers relating to the conflict, as well as the reports of the Army's Chief Engineer, the Superintendent of West Point, and the Chief of the Topographical Engineers. The first 500 pages alone is "a detailed military history of the Mexican War, except the opening operations of 1846 . . . accompanied by the reports of the officers in the field covering the military operations from the battle of Buena Vista to the capture of the city of Mexico. An appendix of 249 pages supplies further military reports, chiefly from subordinate officers" (Lamed 2014). The maps include: a "Plan of the Battle of Buena Vista," "Battles of Mexico: Line of Operations of the U.S. Army under the Command of Major General Winfield Scott on the 19th and 20th of August 1847, Surveyed by Maj. Turnbull, Capt. McClellan and Lieut. Hardcastle Corps of Top Engineers, Drawn by Lieut. Hardcastle," a "Sketch of the Battle of Sacramento," and an untitled map showing Sierra Nevada and the Gulf of California. "One of America's most successful conflicts militarily, the Mexican War added vast territories to the national domain. It also, however, provoked anti-Americanism in Mexico and contributed to the sectional tension that culminated in the Civil War. The conflict was an outgrowth of U.S. expansionism (expressed in the popular slogan 'Manifest Destiny,' coined in 1845). In an immediate sense, warfare erupted because of a dispute over the boundary separating Mexico and Texas, exacerbated by Mexico's defaulting in 1844 on payments to satisfy American citizens' claims for losses sustained in Mexico. The U.S. government, after annexing the Republic of Texas in 1845, upheld Texas's claim to the Rio Grande River as its border with Mexico. Mexican authorities neither recognized Texas's independence from Mexico (achieved in 1836) nor its annexation by the United States; they also claimed that Texas extended only to the Nueces River. The Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo, signed by U.S. negotiator Nicholas P. Trist with Mexican officials on 2 February 1848 and ratified by the U.S. Senate on 10 March, ended the war. It ceded to the United States some 500,000 square miles--including the disputed boundary area and what would become today's states of California, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Nevada, and parts of Colorado and Wyoming--in return for $15 million and the U.S. government's assumption of up to $3.25 million in American claims against Mexico. The United States agreed to honor the property rights of current inhabitants of the ceded territories, though the process was unevenly applied, and most residents lost their land over time. The last U.S. forces evacuated Mexico in August 1848" (Robert E. May for ANB). Sabin 48113. Dudley Marvin was a lawyer and Representative from New York. In 1812 he served as lieutenant in the state militia and eventually became major general.

        Narrative of a Journey round the World, during the Years 1841 and 1842

      London: Henry Colburn, 1847. Two volumes, octavo, with a frontispiece portrait and a folding map; small library stamp at the end of one volume; complete with the 24 pp. Colburn advertisements; an excellent copy in old half green morocco. An important book on Hawaii, Alaska and the Pacific Northwest. Simpson, Governor-in-Chief of the Hudson's Bay Territories in North America, was influential in revitalising the company's operations and greatly encouraged the exploration of its territories. Simpson left London in 1841, and went by way of Halifax and Boston to Canada, crossing by canoe to Vancouver. He made two visits to Sitka, and his material on Alaska is significant. He passed Fort Ross and made stops at San Francisco, Monterey, and Santa Barbara, and gives a detailed account of his time in California. He went on to Hawaii, where the company had a store. Forbes notes that 'This account of his visit to the islands is important for its full and accurate report of business and financial conditions in Honolulu… [his] suggestion led to the formation of a "commission" which proceeded to Washington DC , Paris, and London seeking the confirmation of Hawaiian independence from the three great powers. Simpson himself was the accredited third member of this commission'.

        Journal of an Overland Expedition in Australia , from Moreton Bay to Port Essington, a distance of upwards of 3000 miles, during the years 1844-1845

      London: T. & W. Boone, 1847. Octavo text with frontispiece and six aquatint plates (one folding) and woodcut vignettes; the three rare folding maps in a separate atlas volume; nineteenth-century polished calf, spines ornately gilt, the text volume with red and green morocco labels, map volume with longitudinal green label; in fine condition. Complete with the rare maps. A handsomely bound copy in lovely condition of Ludwig Leichhardt's account of his legendary expedition through Queensland to the far-northern coastline of Australia, complete with the famous suite of Arrowsmith maps. Leichhardt's meandering journey from Brisbane to Port Essington, the military base on the far north coast, ranks among Australia's most successful exploring expeditions. His scientific and geographic work were greatly admired during his lifetime, and despite more recent criticism of his reputation as an expeditionary leader, his life and unknown death have become part of Australian mythology. In the course of their harrowing fourteen-month journey - one of the longest inland expeditions undertaken - Leichhardt and his party travelled over three thousand miles of completely unknown country. It was generally believed that Leichhardt and his party had all perished, so when they appeared at Port Essington they were welcomed as if they had returned from the dead. Leichhardt returned to Sydney in March 1846, as a national hero. This outstanding set includes the three rare and desirable separately issued maps. Prepared and published by the great cartographer John Arrowsmith in 1847, they were issued separately but were intended as a complement to the octavo volume published by Boone in the same year. The maps are known to have been issued on both thick and fine paper: in this copy they are present in the fine paper issue, with all three expertly backed on fine linen and in excellent condition. These large and finely engraved maps represent an important achievement in Australian cartography as each map marks the route of Leichhardt and his men through previously uncharted wilderness. The maps were prepared by Arrowsmith from original field notes and charts by Leichhardt and reconciled with the coastal surveys of Matthew Flinders, Phillip Parker King, John Lort Stokes and Francis Price Blackwood. Arrowsmith was awarded the gold medal of the Royal Geographical Society in 1863 for his tireless contributions to cartography, and in particular his maps of Australia and North America.
