        Baumstudie

      um 1848. Bleistift auf Papier, Wasserzeichen: Mondsichel mit Gesicht, 23 x 26,3 cm. Dieses Werk gehört zu einer Gruppe von Arbeiten Heinrich Drebers, welches einen interessanten Einblick in die Veränderung seines Zeichenstils ermöglicht, den der Künstler seit seiner Abreise nach Italien und dem damit einhergehenden Verlassen des Wirkungskreises seines Lehrer Ludwig Richter stetig weiterentwickelte. Während seiner Lehrjahre in Dresden hat er vornehmlich die Feder zum Ausführen seiner Blätter verwendet und sich dabei an den klaren Linien seines Lehrers orientiert. Doch als Dreber nach Italien kommt, ändert sich seine Auffassung und der Zeichenstift wird ihm zunehmend zum freien Experimentierfeld. Diese Baumstudien steht, obwohl einige Zeit nach seiner Ankunft in Italien entstanden, der Dresdner Zeit am nächsten und markieren somit den Anfang des Wandlungsprozesses. In ihr ist der Drang nach Belebung durch Detailtreue noch deutlich zu erkennen. Jedes Blatt, jede Verwachsung werden notiert. Doch dies ist nur Ausgangspunkt. Bereits hier deutet sich die neue Funktion des Stiftes an, wenn die Linie zwischen Umriss und Flächenstruktur changiert. Beides beginnt hier aufzubrechen und den Aspekt der markierenden Linie zunehmen in den Hintergrund zu drängen.

        Ko-i-staun Foot Soldiery in Summer Costume, actively employed among the Rocks

      London: Hering & Remington, 1848. An arresting image of a participant in the First Afghan War of 1838-1842. A powerful image from James Rattray's seminal work "Scenery, Inhabitants, & Costumes, of Afghaunistan". Published in London between 1847 and 1848, this important work was one of the first texts to chronicle the British conflict in Afghanistan. Rattray, who served with the 2nd Grenadiers, Bengal Army, during the conflict, took great pains to note specific details of dress and local customs of the Afghani soldiers and statesmen that he came in contact with. This beautiful lithograph is a wonderful example of Rattray's meticulous work and keen eye for detail. The main subject is Mir Alam standing overlooking a pass armed with a 'juzzail', a favoured type of large heavy Afghan rifle. He was initially a member of a notorious band of Kohistani robbers who operated on the road to Turkestan, north-west of Begram. The band, and its leader, subsequently enrolled and served with distinction as part of the infantry escort of Rattray's brother . Rattray wrote: "Coistaun has always been remarkable for the war-like character of its inhabitants, who average some forty thousand families famous for the efficiency and excellence of their Pyadas (foot-soldiery). As light infantry they are unrivalled, and from their numbers and determined courage, are of considerable importance in the event of any revolution in which they may take part." Cf. Abbey Travel II, 513. Tinted lithograph by R. Carrick, hand-coloured and heightened with gum arabic.

      New York: Published by William H. Richardson, . 1848 - 96pp. plus three wood-engraved plates, one in- text illustration, and a facsimile manuscript. Original pictorial green wrappers. Early ownership signature at top of front wrapper. Very clean and fresh internally. Near fine. Third edition, after the very rare first edition of 1847 and the rare second edition of 1848, of this important Wagner-Camp and Mexican War title. This third edition remains quite scarce and is seldom met with in commerce. Richardson enlisted as a mounted volunteer due to patriotism engendered on the 4th of July in Carrollton, Missouri. He took part in Doniphan's expedition over the Santa Fe Trail in the fall of 1846, heading south to El Paso by the first of the New Year, then on to Chihuahua and eventually to Matamoros, where the command shipped by boat to New Orleans. By July 10, Richardson was back home in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, and the first edition of his fascinating journal was published before the end of 1847 in the nearest city, Baltimore. An important and well written account of overland travel along the Santa Fe Trail during the Mexican War. GRAFF, FIFTY TEXAS RARITIES 33 (1st ed). WAGNER-CAMP 137:3. CLARK II:164. HOWES R262.

        Newport and its Environs, illustrated by a series of views

      Newport 1848 - Contemporary maroon cloth, upper cover with centrally blocked panel containing title 'Newport / and / environs' lettered in gilt. The earliest collection of Newport views by the prominent Newport architect, George Champlin Mason. These views, a pastoral lithographic tour, are very rare, and are among the first to showcase the town as a recreational haven. OCLC cites only eleven plates and no descriptive text, and locates only four copies in institutional libraries. Bartlett describes only a small format work by Mason: Newport Illustrated, in a Series of Pen & Pencil Sketches. (New York, 1854). "George Champlin Mason was a native of Newport and a man of many talents -- an artist, writer, and prolific architect. Eventually, he took his son into partnership for the design of some of the finest homes and estates in Newport dating from the second half of the nineteenth century. When in his twenties, the elder Mason spent two years abroad, where he studied drawing and architecture in Paris, Florence, and Rome. On his return, Mason prepared the drawings for his first published work, Newport and its environs . It was designated "Volume I," although there is no sign that a second volume ever materialized. All of the views bear Mason's signature and tend to emphasize -- with their attention to cows, ducks, sheep, streams, and fishing -- the pastoral quality of Newport's surroundings" (Deak). Deak calls in error for twelve lithographs, plus the elaborate titlepage. The titlepage vignette which is captioned "Fort Dumpling" is the subject of the first descriptive leaf, and is also included in the list of twelve plates which appears across the top of the titlepage. It is not known who executed the lithography, but in the lower margin of each text leaf, 'Francis Hart, Printer,' of New York is credited with the letterpress. A complete list of the plates follows, in order of appearance: 1) "Fort Dumpling." (title vignette). 2) "Newport from Fort Dunham." 3) "Ellison's Rock near Conrad's Cave." 4) "The Glen." 5) "The Bluff Near Purgatory." 6) "Newport Harbour, from the Blue Rocks." 7) "Easton's Beach." 8) "Head Quarters of Genl. Prescott in 1777." 9) "Coggeshall's Ledge." 10) "Old Stone Mill, Newport." 11) "State House and Parade." 12) "Whitehall." Bartlett p.182 (ref,); Bradford 3247; Deak, Picturing America 558; OCLC 36985187; Sabin 45442. (12 1/8 x 16 7/8 inches). Tinted lithographic title with vignette. 11 lithographic plates, all after Mason. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Kumagai jin'ya no dan, Kumagai's Battle-camp

      - This work is a beautiful yakusha-e (kabuki actors' print) triptych. The instant print groups five actors on a total of three sheets. Artist: Utagawa (Baido) Kunimasa IV (1848-1920). Title: Kumagai jin'ya no dan, Kumagai's battle-camp. Publ.: Not deciphered but name/address of artist and of publisher believed listed to left of toshidama seal in left-hand triptych. Date: Meiji (Believed to be 1880s. After 1889 he is not known to have signed Baido Kunimasa, as here). Almost certainly an early pull of the first edition. Size: (HxW) 14.6" x 9.8" (each of 3 pieces) of triptych. Oban tate-e. Signature: Baido Kunimasa hitsu, with toshidama seal. Condition: Near Fine impression and state. No creasing observed. Immensely clean, front and back, save for occasional very small color blotches, quite minor. Sharp, occasionally broken key block lines and with well-registered colors. Vibrant aniline dye colors, slight to moderate color transfer. As to color choices, a riot of color, with greens, reds, bright pink, light yellow, blues, purple, and black dominating. Untrimmed top and left margins. Very little soiling. Unbacked. Over all a Very Good Plus triptych. Comments: From the play Ichi-no tani futaba gunki, The Chronicle of the Battle of Ichi-no Tani, between the Heiki (Taira) and Genji (Minamoto). Specifically, the final scene of Act III, San no kiri. Depicted, from left to right: Sagami, Atsumori, Kumagai Naozane, Midaroku, and Yoshitsune. Actors portraying these characters may have been: Kataoka Gado III (Midaroku); Ichikawa Kuzo III (Kumagai); Bando Kakitsu I (Atsumori); Ichikawa Gonjuro (Yoshitsune). Actors striking vivid mie or poses. Compare the present triptych with a triptych print by Kunichika of 1879 in the Lavenberg Collection of Japanese Prints depicting a scene from the same play. "Originally born Takenouchi Hidehisa, the artist [Kunimasa IV] used multiple go (artist names) during his career including Baido Hosai, Baido Kunimasa, Kochoro, Kunimasa IV, Kunisada III and Toyokuni V. Early in his career he used the go Kunimasa IV and Baido Hosai. In 1889 he succeeded as head of the Utagawa line and took the go Kunisada III. Later in his career he claimed the title Toyokuni IV, but that go was already taken (a fact that he refused to recognize), so he is referred to as Toyokuni V. He studied under Toyokuni III at age 11 and then under Utagawa Kunisada I (1786-1865), Kunisada II and Tokokuni III. He specialized in Meiji actor prints and along with Toyohara Kunichika (1835-1900) is considered by some as the best of the yakusha-e artists."

        2 autograph letters signed. 1848-1857

      Camden Town, 1848. <p>De Morgan, Augustus (1806-71). (1). Autograph letter signed to an unidentified correspondent. Camden Town, Jan. 27, 1848. 1 page plus integral blank. 180 x 114 mm. (2) Autograph letter signed to Admiral Sir Francis Beaufort (1774-1857). Camden Town, October 7, 1857. 2-1/2pp. 183 x 114 mm. Some foxing, blank portion of second leaf cut away. Together 2 letters, both mounted on single sheet together with printed obituary notice and wood-engraved portrait.</p><p>Two dryly humorous letters from the mathematician Augustus de Morgan, known for formulating De Morgan&#39;s laws or De Morgan&#39;s theorem (rules in formal logic relating pairs of dual logical operators in a systematic manner expressed in terms of negation), and for introducing the term "mathematical induction" and making its idea rigorous. De Morgan was also the author of Arithmetical Books from the Invention of Printing to the Present Time (1847), which has been described as "the first significant work of scientific bibliography" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). </p><p>De Morgan&#39;s 1848 letter reads as follows:</p><p>I can&#39;t find Leverrier&#39;s Christian names-or, not to make any assumption which a member of the Institute might repudiate-his prénoms. They begin with U. J. Can you tell them? Or must I put down Ulysses Jeremiah at a venture. If you can&#39;t tell them, can you calculate them. They can hardly be as difficult as a planet.</p><p>If you happen to know Hencke&#39;s, pray tell them to me: but I can&#39;t demand them of you as a right which I do Leverrier&#39;s.</p><p>"Leverrier" refers to Urbain Jean Joseph Leverrier (1811-77), the French astronomer whose mathematical calculations and astronomical observations of the perturbations of Uranus led directly to the discovery of Neptune. "Hencke" refers to German astronomer Karl Ludwig Hencke (1793-1866), discoverer of the asteroids 5 Astraea and 4 Vesta. </p><p>The 1857 letter reads:</p><p>I had a note from Mr. Smyth this morning, by which I was very glad to hear that you were able to write, and that your handwriting was still of the old firm type. This note was in answer to one which made some inquiries about your identity-not health alone, but identity-and it appears that you and I have been fellow sailors, and that 51 years ago this very month. To be sure we were, as we may say, at the two extreme ends of the chain. You commanded the Woolwich, and I commanded nothing but my mother&#39;s constant attention, being then an infant of four months old on board the Jane Duchess of Gordon E. S. But my command was in better order than yours; for my voice was sufficient per se, whereas yours would have been of little effect but for the knowledge that the nine tails and powder and ball were looming in the distance as definite possibilities.</p><p>I picked up my mother&#39;s journal a few days ago, which let me into this little secret. It would do you good to see how you were cut up when you shortened sail against the wishes of the ladies.</p><p>De Morgan was born in India and returned to England as an infant; his letter refers to this voyage. His correspondent, Admiral Sir Francis Beaufort, was a naval hydrographer who conducted important hydrographic surveys in South America and southern Anatolia; he served for 25 years as head of the Hydrographic Office of the British Admiralty, and invented the Beaufort scale for indicating wind force.</p>

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM HENRY ALEXANDER SCAMMELL DEARBORN TO JOHN JAMES ABERT, ON UNITED STATES SURVEYING EXPEDITIONS].

      [Hawthorne Cottage, Roxbury, Ma.]. Dec. 9, . 1848 - [1 1/2]pp. on folded quarto sheet, blank integral leaf present. Light fold lines. Quite clean. Very good. In a half morocco box. An engaging letter, discussing the state of the United States Exploring Expedition, and particularly William Emory's NOTES OF A MILITARY RECONNOISSANCE., which was published shortly before this letter was written. Emory's text was a landmark in the history of California and the Far Southwest, and includes some of the first American views of the region. In his letter to Col. Abert, whose son was a member of the expedition, Dearborn lauds the courage and accomplishments of the brash young gentlemen of the army such as Emory and Abert's son, for bringing honor to themselves and to the country. The letter reads: "I am most grateful for Lt. Emory's RECONNOISSANCE in Mexico and California which you so kindly sent to me. I had before read from various Reports of his duties in the same expedition, as far as he descended the Rio Grande. I can not, insufficiently express [?] given the opinion I have formed of the meritorious labors of those officers. For scientific facts, in the geography, and natural history of those regions, the country is under the greatest obligations. They have energetically, have cheerfully, have patriotically and have gallantly did they discharge their so various and multifarious duties. Such services not only reflect the highest honor on those estimable young gentlemen, and on the group to which they belong but on the country, which can boast of much accomplished officers." Henry Alexander Scammell Dearborn, like his illustrious father, spent a career in public service, most famously as the collector of the port of Boston. At the time of writing, Dearborn was the mayor of Roxbury, Massachusetts. His enthusiastic response to Emory's report represents the optimism that Emory's and other expedition reports fostered among influential members of the upper class. The underlying hope was that the lands acquired in the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo would prove fruitful and offer a vast new arena for physical and economic expansion. DAB V, pp.176-77.

        Kladderadatsch: Organ fur und von den Bummler [Complete first year of the magazine and additional Extrablatt]. 33 issues.

      NP, Berlin 1848 - The "Kladderatsch" [Berlin slang for "falling and breaking into fragments"] was one of the most important German periodicals. The magazine, founded by bookseller Albert Hoffmann and acclaimed writer David Kalish, was published between 1848 and 1944 and focussed on political satire, through articles [especially Ernst Dohm and Rudolf Lowenstein] and caricatures [especially Willhelm Scholz]. Especially of importance is the first year of its publishing [this copy], since it refers to the events of the 1848- revolution in Germany, where the first German parliament, the "Frankfurter Nationalversammlung" was founded at Paulskirche, Frankfurt. The first issue in 1848 was sold out on publication date.4to. 3/4 vellum over black paper covered boards, with special issue and complete 32 editions of the first publication year bound in. Continuous pagination. (3) 132pp. Modern endpapers. Newspaper clip pasted on inside of backboard, referring to the periodical. Illustrated throughout with b/w sketches. Minor scuffing to boards. Browning and sporadic foxing to pages. In German, in Gothic script. Very good condition. The political line of the periodical was moderate nationalistic [it supported Bismarck]. During the Weimarer Republic, it drifted more to the right and eventually supported the Nazis openly. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        A History of the Royal Society, with Memoirs of the Presidents

      London: John Parker, 1848. Two volumes, large octavo, with plates and illustrations; a fine copy in later half calf, spines ornately gilt with double labels. The great history of the Royal Society. A handsome copy, finely bound, of the standard early history of the influential Royal Society. From its foundation in the seventeenth century to the present day it has been at the very centre of science in the widest sense. It is in fact the oldest scientific academy in continuous existence. A remarkable line-up inventions and discoveries were first announced in presentations to the society, early momentous announcements ranging from Harvey&#39;s discovery of the circulation of blood, Wren&#39;s papers on the pendulum and Saturn, and Newton&#39;s telescope to Babbage&#39;s calculating machine. In fact the material on Babbage is significant enough for Jeremy Norman to have included Weld&#39;s book in his "Origins of Cyberspace" collection and bibliography. Weld&#39;s book tells the story of the first two centuries of the Society&#39;s history; inevitably there is much on Sir Joseph Banks, its most famous early President, whose position at the head of the Society epitomised his role as the great disseminator and pollinator in the sciences. There is considerable material on Captain Cook, including of course Pringle&#39;s famous delivery of his paper on scurvy discoveries, and on other voyagers showing to what extent the Society was involved with geographical discovery and the attendant scientific enquiries.
