        Die Architectur und ihr Verhältniß zur heutigen Malerei und Sculptur.

      Stuttgart und Tübingen Cotta 1847 - (21,5 x 13,5 cm). XXIV, 180 (1) S. Leinwandband der Zeit. Einzige Ausgabe. - Hübsch (1795-1863), Architekt und großherzoglicher Baudirektor, leitete über 20 Jahre die Karlsruher Bauschule und wurde dadurch zum führenden Architekten des Großherzogtums Baden. "In mehreren Schriften, deren bekannteste 1828 unter dem Titel 'In welchem Style sollen wir bauen?' erschien, hat er seine Theorien zu diesem 'Rundbogenstil' ausführlich dargelegt. Neue konstruktive Lösungen und die Einführung des unverputzten Backstein- und Werksteinmauerwerks zeugen für sein Streben nach Wirtschaftlichkeit und 'Wahrheit' in Konstruktion und Material. Charakteristische Beispiele dafür sind das Finanzministerium in Karlsruhe, die katholische Kirche in Bulach und die Trinkhalle in Baden-Baden. Sein Hauptwerk in Karlsruhe ist die Baugruppe um den Botanischen Garten mit Kunsthalle, Theater und der Orangerie mit den Gewächshäusern. Dazu kommt die 1854-58 erbaute Westfassade des Speyerer Doms" (NDB). - Titel mit zwei alten Stempeln, sonst sehr sauber und wohlerhalten

        Kitab Alf layla wa-layla (Hindustani).

      Kanpur (Cawnpore), Mustafai Press, 1263 AH [1847 AD]. - Large 4to (180 x 274 mm). 4 volumes bound as two. Lithographed throughout, with decorated title pages and a full-page floral illustration to the final page. (4), 276 pp. (duplicate set of pp. 121-124 inserted after p. 20). 284 pp. (p. 126 from book 3, verso blank, bound head-over-heels at the end). 214 pp. 196 pp. (with an index page "69" inserted at the beginning and end of the second volume). Contemporary full red calf with flat spines, painted entirely with floral oriental designs; both covers with inlaid gilt floral stamps. Very early and rare Hindustani (Urdu) version of the "Thousand and One Nights", translated by Munshi Adb al-Karîm. This was considered by J. F. Blumhardt, the cataloguer of the Hindustani books in the British Library and consultant to Richard Burton, the first complete version in Urdu, as a previous one, lithographed at Madras in 1836, comprised merely the first 200 "Nights" (Chauvin, however, cites an edition issued in Lucknow in 1828 as the first). Al-Karim's translation was based on Edward Forster's 1802 English version. "After two years' labour [.] the whole work [was completed] in AH 1258 (AD 1842). It was lithographed at the Mustafai Press at Kanpur (Cawnpore) in the year AH 1263 (AD 1847) and published in four vols., in two royal 8vos, lithographed; each containing two Jilds (or parts) [.] This translation is written in an easy, fluent style, omitting all coarseness of expression or objectionable passages, in language easily understood, and at the same time in good and elegant Hindustani. It is therefore extremely popular, and selections from the 4th Jild have been taken as text books for the Indian Civil Service examinations [.] There has been no attempt to divide this tranlation into Nights: there are headings to the several tales and nothing more" (Burton, quoting information supplied by Blumhardt). - Volumes 1 and 4 are dated in Arabic (and vol. 1 also in Latin). A few reinforcements. Some loosening of the sewing in book 2. Some worming, more pronounced in the 2nd volume, but mainly confined to margins. Several pencil annotations by an early 20th century scholar's hand in book 3. An appealingly bound copy. Chauvin IV, 20Y. Burton XIII, p. xi. Cf. Blumhardt, BM Cat., col. 36 (this edition not in the British Library). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        ELECTORS OF THE WESTERN DISTRICT! READ AND CONSIDER!! AT A MEETING OF GENTLEMEN OF THE WHIG PARTY, AND OF CITIZENS GENERALLY, FAVORABLE TO THE ELECTION OF HON. WILKINS UPDIKE, TO CONGRESS, HELD AT KINGSTON COURT HOUSE, AUG. 11, 1847 [caption title]

      [N.p., likely Kingston or Providence, R.I., 1847. Broadside, 19 x 12 1/2 inches. Old folds, some toning in lower region, mild edge wear. Very good. [with:] [J.W. Richmond]: FACTS RELATIVE TO THE POLITICAL AND MORAL CLAIMS OF WILKINS UPDIKE, FOR THE SUPPORT OF THE WHIG ELECTORS OF THE WESTERN DISTRICT. Providence. 1847. 16pp. Gathered signatures, stitched. Mild toning and foxing. Very good. A rare anti-Mexican War and anti-slavery broadside touting the Whig candidacy of Rhode Island historian Wilkins Updike for Congress in 1847. The broadside summarizes various speakers at an anti- political rally, and rails against the Mexican-American War and slavery. It reads, in part: "What then are the measures of the democratic party, which you vote for and endorse by giving a vote for Gov. Thurston? Do you not by so doing approve of the present unjust and wicked war with Mexico, a war begun by President Polk alone without the sanction of Congress, and which Congress were afterwards reluctantly brought to vote supplies for?.... But it was not merely the amount of public money squandered in this war, it was not even the great danger to the liberties of the country from the enormous and unconstitutional powers claimed by the President, and from the system of corruption which prevailed in the administration - there was a more momentous consideration than even all these - that was the object for which the war was carried on - the EXTENSION of SLAVERY!!" The text continues by giving an accounting of the costs of the Mexican-American War - both the appropriations already spent and also what the Congress might be expected to spend to continue the war in the future. In short, the war has cost over $80,000,000 so far, and Congress should expect to spend more than $50,000,000 more just in the next session should the war continue. The accompanying pamphlet, FACTS RELATIVE TO THE POLITICAL AND MORAL CLAIMS OF WILKINS UPDIKE, FOR THE SUPPORT OF THE WHIG ELECTORS OF THE WESTERN DISTRICT, provides a counter-argument to Updike's candidacy for Congress. Just half of one paragraph on the first page sums up the writer's opinion of Wilkins Updike: "It will first be shown by incontrovertible evidence, that from political considerations alone, he is unworthy of the support of the electors of the state of Rhode Island. What has been the political life of Mr. Updike? Has he been true and consistent on any political principle? Has he been true to any political party? It is known full well to every man, that he has not. So frequent have been his political somersets, that all have feared to trust him with office." The broadside is particularly rare, with only three copies in OCLC, at the New-York Historical Society Library, the American Antiquarian Society, and Williams College. The pamphlet is rather common, but provides an interesting political counterpoint to the broadside. Taken together, an interesting pair of political campaign documents that encapsulate the roaring debate on the Mexican-American War and what it meant for the expansion of slavery in 1847. Electors: OCLC 58787939. Facts: SABIN 71144. OCLC 23352383, 504352127.

        Digest of Evidence taken before Her Majesty's Commissioners of Inquiry into the State of the Law and Practice in Respect to the Occupation of Land in Ireland.

      First Edition. Two Volumes. Dublin, Printed by Alexander Thom for Her Majesty's Stationary Office, 1847 / 1848. 21 x 13 cm. Part 1: viii, 702 pages. With three foldouts and numerous tables / illustrations in the text. / Part 2: viii, pages from 703 to 1172. With two foldouts and tables. Original dark green textured cloth. Hard cover with gilt titles on spine. Very good condition. Corners, boards and spine slightly ruubed and bumped. Spine darkened to brown. Joints started to crack in places, but binding remains sound. Some dust dulling. Mild foxing,mainly to end papers, first and last few pages. Very few pencil underlinings, otherwise internally very clean. The Devon Commission (officially ‚Commission on Occupation of Land (Ireland)') was a commission that was appointed by Sir Robert Peel to research the problems with land leases. It was formed in 1843 and reported 1845. This was a positive step for the government as it made the Irish believe that reform would come soon afterwards. This was the first time that a British government had taken a step towards reforming the unfair leases. The Devon Commission was headed by William Courtney, the 10th Earl of Devon, and it reported in 1845 that the population of Ireland had exploded from 6 million people to close on 8 million people. Similarly, they concluded that the leases were unfair and were favorable to the landowners (who were usually Anglo-Irish). The majority of Irish tenants had no form of protection, they could be, and often were, summarily evicted. The Devon Commission had wide reaching consequences and though too late to prevent the famine, it did galvanize change afterwards. (Wikipedia). From the Introductory Chapter: ‚The whole of that vast mass of evidence taken by the commissioners in reference to the mutual relation existing between the proprietors and occupiers of land in Ireland, is at once conclusive, painfully interesting, and the most portentous in its character. It proves that the safety of the country, and the respective interests of both those classes, call loudly for a cautious but immediate adjustment of the grave questions at issue between them'.

      Breslau, Josef Max u. Komp., 1838-1847. - Erste Sammelausgabe der Novellen, Bände 1-4 in 'neuem Abdruck', Bände 11-14 mit dem Nebentitel 'Neue Folge'. Enthält – trotz des Vermerks "vermehrt und verbessert" – drei Novellen im Erstdruck: 'Der Schutzgeist', 'Abendgespräche' und 'Die Glocke von Aragon'; die anderen wurden meist nur geringfügig überarbeitet. "Tieck präsentiert sich in den Novellen als Altromantiker, ohne Esoterik, aber mit der Überzeugung, daß Wunder und Alltag keine sich widersprechenden Erscheinungsformen des Lebens sind. Das Aufgreifen von gesellschaftlichen Problemen, . deren maßvolle, versöhnliche Art der Darstellung im Dialog, die Thematisierung von Freundschaft, Gemeinschaft, 'Schonung' und Menschlichkeit, scherzhaft und mit Anmut ist als die eigentliche Leistung von Tiecks Alterswerk anzusehen. Der Meister des Prosastils wurde zu einer Autorität einer neuen literarischen Gattung, der Taschenbuchnovelle ." (Paulin, Metzler, S. 87). – Etwas stockfleckig. – Goed. VI 43, 123.

        OMOO: A NARRATIVE OF ADVENTURES IN THE SOUTH SEAS

      New York: Harper & Brothers; London: John Murray, 1847. First American Edition. A South Seas adventure based on the author's own experiences, "Omoo" cemented Melville's status as an adventure writer, but was his last successful work during his lifetime. According to ANB, "with 'Typee' and 'Omoo' Melville seized the imagination of readers of English throughout the world. He was a modern Robinson Crusoe, who even skeptical Britons finally decided was a genuine adventurer. . . . [these] first two books, the basis of [Melville's] reputation, remained in print throughout his lifetime, distributed worldwide as part of John Murray's Home and Colonial Library." "Omoo" was first printed by the London publisher Murray, who had taken a chance on the overtly sexual "Typee," which Harper Brothers had rejected. This frank sexuality did shock the public, but it also drove sales, and Harper Brothers leapt at the chance to publish this sequel. Melville was established both as a sex symbol and as an author worthy to be mentioned in the same breath as the greatest American writer of the day, Nathaniel Hawthorne, who became a friend and mentor. Tragically, the work now regarded as Melville's masterpiece, "Moby-Dick," was disappointing to a public hoping for more racy, raucous exploits, and Melville's career never recovered. Only in the 20th century was he returned to his place beside Hawthorne in the American literary pantheon.. 190 x 122 mm. (7 1/2 x 4 7/8"). xv, [i], 17-389 pp., [xv]-xxiii, 16 pp. (ads). With the half title. First American Edition. Modern three-quarter maroon morocco over red buckram, raised bands flanked by gilt and blind rules, spine panels with gilt centerpiece. With frontispiece map of the South Pacific. Front flyleaf and p. 159 with ink signature of Alfred C. Clark; title page with "Churchill" written in pencil at head. BAL 13656. Occasional mild foxing or corner creases, but an excellent copy, with clean, fresh, and bright text in an unworn binding.

After early aspirations of a military life he became an artist, and worked in Ipswich alongside artists such as Robert Burrows, and his brother Thomas (1825-1906). In 1840 Smythe moved to Norwich, and is said to have worked with John Sell Cotman. He was undoubtedly influenced by several Norwich School artists, such as his friend Frederick Ladbrooke. His work attracted commissions from eminent patrons such as the Earl of Cardigan, and the Greene family.

        Collection of Twelve Water Colours & Two Pencil Sketches, of a Voyage to Madeira, and also Cape Verde Islands and St Helena in the packet-brig Eclipse during the year 1847.

      September-October 1847 It would be pleasant to think that these sketches were drawn by Ann Dolman of Marshfield, Gloucestershire after her marriage to John Bodman in November 1846 - but one would assume if that was the case the signature used would be 'A. Bodman'. The images are described fully in the note below; water colours unless otherwise stated.1. Humorous depiction of a seaboard dinner interrupted by bad weather. 36 x 26cm. Seven gentlemen, one lady and two waiters (one Indian) discombobulated by a storm, with food, glasses, people, thrown hither and thither. Signed A Dolman, 47. 2. Attractive view of the deck of the Eclipse. 26 x 18cm. With two gentlemen, two ladies, a child, a cat and a dog, with land and a threemaster in the background. Signed A. Dolman Sept. 15/47. 3. Two men carrying a hammock & another carrying bags. 31 x 12cm. Pencil sketch. 4. Six vignette sketches on one page, four in pencil & watercolour, 2 in pencil only. 19 x 14cm. Includes a small portrait of 'the oldest inhabitant in Madeira'. 5. Villa da Machico, Madeira. 18 x 26cm. Pencil sketch from the sea. 6. Oval view of huts, woman carrying firewood on her head in foreground, sea and islands in background. 14 x 10cm. 7. The Dezertas from the Brazen Head Cliffs, Madeira. 18 x 26cm.

View from town looking up to hills. 36 x 26cm. Background finished, town in foreground unfinished. 10. The Forge or Souffleur, Madeira. 20 x 26cm. The Forga or Forge on the island of St Miguel, Madeira, a naturally occurring 'boiling fountain' under cliffs. 11. The Rabacal, Madeira. 35 x 25cm. Spectacular waterfall, with resting workman in foreground. 12. Camara de Lobos from the west, Madeira. 34 x 23cm. A town on the coast of south-central Madeira. Signed and dated Oct. 26 1847. 13.

        LA PHALANGE. [MANUSCRITS DE FOURIER.] DES CINQ PASSIONS SENSUELLES.

      S.d. Imprimerie Lange Lévy et Compagnie, Rue du Croissant, 16, [Paris, vers 1845-1847] - 1 volume in-8 (23,8 x 16,5 cm), pagination multiple (environ 500 pages). Collationné complet des divers textes publiés à la suite et séparément dans La Phalange (voir détail des parties et chapitres ci-dessous). Reliure à la bradel moderne plein vélin blanc, dos muet, doublures et gardes de papier noir (reliure signée Elsa Rambour). Reliure parfaitement exécutée avec tranchefiles main. Intérieur frais sur papier fin, sans rousseurs. ÉDITION ORIGINALE. Ce volume se compose de 18 fragments des manuscrits de Fourier publiés dans La Phalange, dans le désordre chronologique. Ils ont été réunis ici dès l'origine (vers 1850) par un amateur. En voici la liste dans l'ordre dans lequel on les trouve reliés dans le volume : L'arbre passionnel. Sa dualité et ses subdivisions en séries nuancées et puissancielles. Etat subversif de la vue en accords de 0. 1. 2. puissances. Complément sur le luxe interne en sens de la vue. Citerlogue. Récréation de correspondance sidérale. Transmission de la langue universelle et des connaissances acquises dans tous les mondes. Des Séries mesurées. Des séries mesurées de 4e et 5e puissances. Du groupe hypermineur ou amour. Du groupe d'amitié ou de confusion. Echelle puissancielle de l'amitié. Antienne. De la composite. De la cabaliste. De la papillonne. Résumé sur les trois distributives. Tableau abrégé des conflits passionnels. Des parcours passionnels. Transitions passionnelles. De l'unitéisme. De la passion foyère dite unitéisme. Sublimité de cette passion. Appendice à l'analyse passionnelle. Analogie tirée du système aromal ou planétaire. Section ébauchée des trois unités externes. Égarement de la raison démontré par les ridicules des sciences incertaines. Fragments. Selon Charles Fourier, l'humain est habité de 12 passions qui se divisent en 3 classes : 5 sensuelles, 4 affectives et 3 distributives. Une passion unifiante, l'unitéisme couronne les douze premières. a. Les passions sensuelles correspondent aux cinq sens. 1. L'ouïe, 2. la vue, 3. le goûter, 4. l'odorat et 5. le toucher permettent de développer les passions associées par exemple à la musique, la peinture, la gastronomie, les parfums et la sexualité. b. Les passions affectives créent des liens avec les autres. 1. L'amitié est un sentiment de complicité personnelle. 2. Le corporatisme stimule l'ambition et la collaboration à partir du sentiment d'appartenance et d'affinité avec un groupe. 3. Le familisme est un lien de sang, celui du clan familial. 4. L'amour, sentiment le plus intense, est un sentiment divin et enivrant. c. Les passions distributives se constituent à partir d'agencements des précédentes. 1. La papillonne s'exprime par le désir de renouveau qui pousse d'une passion à l'autre et permet de fuir la monotonie de l'exclusivité. 2. La composite permet de jouir de la combinaison d'un agencement particulier de plusieurs passions. 3. La cabaliste supplée au goût pour l'intrigue, le calcul (conspiration) et la compétition. L'unitéisme est une passion proprement religieuse. Elle apporte le sentiment d'unité avec tout ce qui nous entoure : humains, nature, cosmos. C'est un sentiment de bienveillance universelle qui se dégage dans l'harmonie où tous se sentent riches, libres et éprouvent la justice. Les Manuscrits inédits de Fourier (mort en 1837) ont été publiés en 10 volumes par La Phalange entre 1845 et 1849. Fils de marchand de draps, commis de magasin, Fourier exerce différents métiers et ce n’est qu’en 1830 qu’il pourra entièrement se consacrer à l’écriture. Il conçoit l’homme heureux et juge les passions positives puisqu’elles sont voulues par Dieu. S’inspirant des principes de Newton, il ambitionne d’appliquer la loi universelle d’attraction à l’attraction passionnelle : user du désir et utiliser les vocations pour une société inégalitaire mais harmonieuse et ainsi créer une communauté où chacun supplée à chacun. héorie des quatre mouvements, son premier traité, paraît en 1808.
