        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Dresden, 4. VII. 1849.. 3 SS. 4to.. An den Schriftsteller Titus Ullrich (1813-1891): "Erst vorgestern empfing ich Ihren lieben Brief vom 25 verflossenen Monats, es blieb nämlich die ganze Zeit im Gasthof zum Deutschen Hause liegen, u. ich wusste es nicht, denn ich wohne nicht dort wie ich früher beabsichtigte. Den 2. u. 3. Act habe ich durchgelesen, einige Kleinigkeiten werden wohl noch zu ändern sein aber die Verse passen wenigstens alle. In diesem Briefe kann ich mich nicht vollständig aussprechen denn ich habe nicht die nothige Gemütsruhe in diesen Augenblick was dazu erforderlich ist u ich hoffe die ersten Tage Septembers selbst nach Berlin auf 2 tage kommen zu können u. dann wollen wir das ganze gehorig durchsehen und ordnen [...]". - Barbieri war als Kapellmeister an italienischen Bühnen tätig, bevor er 1844-46 Kapellmeister am Carltheater in Wien wurde und 1845 Gesangmeister am Kärntnertortheater. Danach wirkte er als Dirigent in Berlin, Dresden, Hamburg, Bremen und Rio de Janeiro, bis er schließlich 1862 seine Tätigkeit als Kapellmeister am Nationaltheater in Pest aufnahm.

        The Bowdoin Poets [with manuscript contribution by Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain]

      Brunswick: Joseph Griffin, 1849 - Original gilt decorative cloth in near fine condition. Housed in custom box. With large folding engraved plate of Bowdoin College. Published in two parts. Part I: First appearances of poems by Bowdoin College students, including 4 poems by H.W. Longfellow, a graduate of Bowdoin and a professor there during Fessenden's and Chamberlain's attendance. Part II: 100 pages of 61 manuscript letters written to James Fessenden from his classmates in the classes of 1849, 50, 51, & 52. Most significant is a letter by Fessenden's friend Joshua L. Chamberlain. Both men went on to become distinguished Civil War Generals; Chamberlain was the hero of Little Round Top at Gettysburg, and his bravery and character led General Grant to choose him to be present at the Confederate surrender at Appomatox. Fessenden was commander of the 2nd US Sharpshooters, and later commander of the First South Carolina Regiment of US Colored Troops. The men's principled behavior can clearly be traced back to their education at Bowdoin, as the letters reflect an interest in high moral values. Of the students who wrote these letters, approximately 20 went on to become officers in the Union Army, while others went on to become respected leaders in a variety of fields.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Wien, 21. VIII. 1849.. 1½ SS. auf Doppelblatt mit Siegel und Adresse (Faltbrief). 4to.. An Joseph Krejci in Prag, Redakteur der Musikzeitschrift "Caecilia": "Euer Wohlgeboren erhalten spät eine Antwort auf Ihren Brief vom 6ten Jänner, worin Sie mir meldeten daß Sie die bereits erschienenen Nummern Ihrer Caecilia samt Musikbeilagen so bald als möglich übersenden wollen; da ich aber bis heute nichts erhielt, auch von der Erscheinung der Caecilia in den öffentlichen Blättern keine Meldung geschah, was zwar bei gegenwärtiger Zeit nicht zu wundern ist: so möchte ich von Ihnen mir Nachricht erbitten, ob Sie vielleicht der jetzigen Zeitumstände wegen die Herausgabe Ihrer Zeitschrift unterlassen wollen. Meine Abhandlung über die Molltonleiter, als Fortsetzung des Ihnen bereits übersandten, ist bereits länger fertig, sobald ich den Druck des frühern Theils erhalten werde, werden Sie meine Fortsetzung erhalten. Zugleich muß ich bemerken daß es mir unsicher scheint, Manuscripte durch die Fahrpost unter Kreuzband zu senden, welches ich bei gedruckten Sachen gar nicht gefährlich finde, weil da immer noch vorräthige Exemplare übrig bleiben, und somit nicht, wie bei Originalschriften, das ganze Werk verloren gehen kann. Jedenfalls ersuche ich Sie, mir zu berichten ob Ihre Cäcilia herauskommt oder ob die der Kunst ungünstigen Zeitverhältniße die Herausgabe derselben nicht gestatten [...]". Sechter wurde von Ludwig van Beethoven und Franz Schubert anerkannt; Giacomo Meyerbeer und Johannes Brahms statteten ihm Besuche ab. Zu seinen Schülern zählen u. a. Anton Bruckner, Henri Vieuxtemps und Sigismund Thalberg. - Stellenweise unbedeutend angestaubt; insgesamt von schöner Erhaltung.

The book contains a section called 'Playing Ball, ' which includes the passage: 'There are a great number of games played with balls, of which base-ball, trap ball, cricket.are most common. It contains two wood-cuts of 'base-ball,' one showing a rudimntary scene of a game and the second 'a party of ballplayers.' " (BASEBALL) 32mo (4-1/4 x 2-3/4 inches).

Some agetoning of very light blue paper otherwise very good condition.First Welland Regiment Military Commission bestowed upon Thomas C. Street by the Governor General of British North America, Nova Scotia, PEI, etc. - James Bruce, Earl of Elgin and Kincardine & signed by him. - Thomas Clark Street, son of Samuel like his father was a ruthless land and mortgage accumulator and businessman with interests in grist, textile and sawmills. While independently minded he is generally considered a solid Family Compact Tory. He rose to Lieutenant-Colonel of the Welland Militia, was a trustee of Trinity College, President of the Niagara Falls Suspension Company, etc. When he died in 1872 he left an estate of between 3 to 4 million, regarded as the largest of his time in Ontario.

The militia "regiments" were renamed "battalions".James Bruce 8th Earl of Elgin and 12th Earl of Kincardine implemented responsible government in the Province of Canada, transferring executive and legislative powers to Canada during his pivotal years as Governor-in-Chief from 1847 to 1854.

        Sanitary Reform: its general aspect and local importance, considered in a Lecture delivered at the New Queen's Theatre, Adelaide

      Adelaide: John Stephens, 1849. Octavo, 64 pp., very good in modern brown quarter morocco. Personal attacks on local landholders. Rare printed lecture on "sanitary reform" which includes a detailed discussion of the streets and houses of Adelaide.The writer John Stephens was a South Australian identity, and regularly packed the lecture halls to deliver speeches on any manner of subjects. Never averse to controversy, this lecture is a prime example of his style, with extensive notes on the latest news from the "mother-country", interspersed with personal attacks on local landholders and builders who continue to knock up sub-standard houses: Mr. Peacock's buildings on Hindley Street are singled out, for example, Clarke's brewery is an "abominable nuisance", as is the butcher in Currie Street with his noisome piggery, and he can barely fathom the horrors of the Port Lincoln Hotel. Stephens comments in his preface that the lecture lasted some three hours, and was listened to throughout with rapt attention; one suspects that some in his audience were concerned that they were about to be publicly shamed.As with his earlier lecture on comets, this is also very rare. It was given gratis to subscribers to Stephens' paper in an overt attempt to drum up support for his schemes.

        China and the Chinese: Their Religion, Character, Customs and Manufactures: the Evils Arising from the Opium Trade; with a Glance at our Religious, Moral, Political and Commercial Intercourse with the Country

      London, 1849. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Two volumes. pp xvi, 447; viii, 443, with a coloured frontispiece in each volume. Later half leather, nineteenth century library bookplates on front pastedowns, part of tissue over frontis to volume one missing; slight discoloration to lower spine of Volume I; minor dampstain to inner corners of frontis to Volume II; otherwise very good and sound. A barrister, Sirr (1807-1872) served as British vice-consul at Hong Kong, and later Queen's Advocate for the southern circuit of Ceylon. This work is particularly valuable for its insight into opium use, the opium trade, and the smuggling carried on between Macao, Canton, and Shanghai. Sirr declared opium to be "China's curse" and condemned Britain's role in trade: "By the sale of this pernicious drug Great Britain's sons gain gold; and earn opprobrium for dealing destruction around them, bringing into derison the name of a Christian country, by enabling the Chinese to violate the laws of their own nation, in obtaining the cursed and prohibited poison; the use of which entails destruction mentally and bodily on its infatuated devotees." The work also provides description of Chinese trades and manufacturing, religion, and culture, and argues that Hong Kong is "an unhealthy pestitlential, and unprofitable, barrn rock," but the island of Chu-san is productive and healthful and thus ideal for colonization by the British. Cordier p. 86.

London: David Bogue, 1849. |~||~||~||~||~| First English Edition of what the translator claims to be the first philosophical theory of colour applicable to the art of painting written by a practicing artist (in contrast to several written by philosophers or scientists). The author claims to have discovered the method of painting with opposite colours and illustrates this in his unusual colour printed plates. The appendix discusses technical matters: the preparation of oil colours, the washing, burning, and grinding of pigments, oils, grounds, priming and varnish making. Ruhemann/Plesters (page 389) states that "the work is not concerned with restoration, but it interesting to note, in view of the date, that in the section on varnish preparation the author expresses the view that only mastic or dammar in turpentine are safe and suitable varnishes for paintings."

        Miscellany of the Celtic society

      Printed for the Celtic society - 1849. Hardcover. 460pp. Bound in original decorative cloth with gilt to spine. Cover is slightly loose. Usual library stampings and foxing apparent but otherwise this is a very nice copy. John O'Donovan (1806 ? 1861) worked for antiquarian James Hardiman researching state papers and traditional sources at the Irish Record Office. He also taught Irish to Thomas Larcom for a short period and worked for Myles John O'Reilly, a collector of Irish manuscripts. He was recruited to the Topographical Department of the first Ordnance Survey of Ireland under George Petrie in October 1830. Apart from a brief period in 1833, he worked steadily for the Survey on place-name researches until 1842, unearthing and preserving many manuscripts. He researched maps and manuscripts at many libraries and archives in Ireland and England, with a view to establishing the correct origin of as many of Ireland's 63,000 townland names as possible. His letters to Larcom are regarded as an important record of the ancient lore of Ireland for those counties he documented during his years of travel throughout much of Ireland. He was later professor of Celtic Languages at Queen's University and was called to the Bar in 1847. On the recommendation of Grimm, he was elected a corresponding member of the Royal Academy Berlin.

      Karlsbad, 9. VII. 1849.. ¾ S. 4to. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief) und Siegel.. An den Komponisten Alexander Dreyschock (1818-1869) in Prag: "Ihrer gütigen Zuschrift zufolge bedaure ich sehr, Ihnen im Betreff eines guten Instruments keine genügende Antwort ertheilen zu können, indem auf hiesigen Platze die besten Instrumente nur von hiesigen Meistern Wagner et Feller gebaut, und für einen Kunst-Heros wie Sie, nicht sonderlich zu empfehlen sind [ ]". - Josef Labitzky wurde 1835 Kapellmeister des Karlsbader Kurorchesters. Es gelang ihm, das Orchester in kurzer Zeit auf eine solche Höhe zu bringen, dass er 1846 auch Sinfoniekonzerte geben konnte. Die Erfolge Labitzkys als Kapellmeister und Komponist ermöglichten Reisen des Orchesters nach Pilsen 1838, Prag, Wien, Warschau, Petersburg 1839 und London (vgl. MGG Bd. 08, S. 14). Alexander Dreyschock folgte 1862 einer Berufung als Prof. des Klavierspiels an das neugegründete Konservatorium Rubinsteins in St. Petersburg, wurde dort zugleich Direktor der Theatermusikschule und russischer Hofpianist (DBE).

        The art of painting restored

      1849. HUNDERTPFUND, Libertat. The art of painting restored to its simplest and surest principles, translated from the German. xi, 122, [ii] pp. Illustrated with 23 plates of which 3 are engraved and printed on thin cards (one each of a palette and brushes), 20 in colour lithography and a large folding chart. 8vo., 198 x 120 mm, bound in original cloth. London: David Bogue, 1849.First English Edition of what the translator claims to be the first philosophical theory of colour applicable to the art of painting written by a practicing artist (in contrast to several written by philosophers or scientists). The author claims to have discovered the method of painting with opposite colours and illustrates this in his unusual colour printed plates. The appendix discusses technical matters: the preparation of oil colours, the washing, burning, and grinding of pigments, oils, grounds, priming and varnish making. Ruhemann/Plesters (page 389) states that "the work is not concerned with restoration, but it interesting to note, in view of the date, that in the section on varnish preparation the author expresses the view that only mastic or dammar in turpentine are safe and suitable varnishes for paintings."Birren Collection 341.

        Portrait de Madame X...

      Directed by Charles Landelle one of the most famous academic artists and most popular of the Second Empire, this beautiful portrait of a woman sitting in a chair, includes all the codes of the genre and shows the strong influence of Ingres, the great master of portraiture in his time, which was not yet his teacher. Details of hands especially direct reference to the style of the painter of the Odalisque and Turkish bath. The work is signed and dated 1849 lower right also recalls another famous painting: Portrait of Veuve Cliquot painted by Leon Cogniet two years later. That year the painter shows two portraits of women at the show and we think because of the anonymity often public models (simply titled the initial of their name) and the large size of this painting that could be one of them.Born in 1821 in Laval, Charles Landelle moved to Paris at the age of four years, then joined the Royal School of Fine Arts in 1837 as a student of Paul Delaroche and Ary Scheffer. Early in his career, Landelle painted several portraits to support himself. Strongly influenced by Italian painting after trips to the South of France and Italy, it copies some paintings of the great masters of the Renaissance to the Louvre. Medals at the Salon from his earliest exhibitions Fra Angelo receiving the inspirations of God (1842) and St. Cecilia (1848), he distinguished himself by religious and historical subjects that allow him to win the recognition of the high society of his time. His critics assure him success at the Salon soon numerous state commissions, including The Rest of the Virgin in 1854 which earned him to be awarded the Cross of Knight of the Legion of Honor. That same year he produced pastel portrait of Alfred de Musset, now in the Louvre. The artist thus embraces a career official painter between state controls and portraits of members of high society. Able to adapt to the tastes and fashions of his time, quickly gaining a reputation Landelle he knows how to maintain, never forgetting to provide a portrait or a painting to its benefactors. In the second part of his career, after the official portion of it is was somewhat out of breath, the artist traveled extensively in Morocco, Egypt, Algeria and is dedicated to Orientalism that will occupy much of its production until his death in 1908.Today a number of his works are preserved in the museum. An important background was bequeathed to his hometown of Laval but there are also some of his works in the Louvre, the Ingres Museum in Montauban, the Museum of Fine Arts in Grenoble, Pau, Rouen or the castle Versailles.Note: We do not provide transportation to the work.S.n.
