        Baumstudie

      um 1850. Bleistift und Weißhöhung auf braunem Papier, 37,1 x 21,7 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. In dieser Zeichnung auf farbigem Papier tritt nicht mehr die zeichnende sondern eher malende Linie deutlich hervor. Dreber verwendet hier einen wesentlich weicheren Stift, arbeitet mit Weißhöhungen und nutzt die Eigenfarbe des Papiers gekonnt für einen Stimmungseffekt, der das Blatt aus einer bloßen Ideenskizze heraushebt. Hier geht es nicht mehr um persönliche Notizen, sondern um Vorstufen einer Bildidee, die sich bereits auf dem Blatt konkretisiert und als malerisches Äquivalent auftritt.

        19 Original-Zeichnungen.

      Deutschland / Österreich, um 1850.. Bleistiftzeichnungen, farbig aquarelliert. Auf Zeichenkarton in unterschiedlicher Größe (von 16 x 7 bis 16 x 19 cm; meist ca. 16 x 10 cm).. Ausgesprochen reizvolle Folge feiner und gekonnter Orig.-Zeichnungen. Einige Zeichnungen signiert 'Alexander' und datiert '1852'. Unikate Folge eines Künstlers, der sich in seinen Motiven anlehnt an der unbändigen erotischen Phantasie des Franzosen Le Poitevin (d. i. Eugene Modeste, 1806-1870). 12 der Motive finden sich in dem Mappenwerk 'Charges et Decharges', sind jedoch hier durchaus eigenständig ausgeführt mit unterschiedlichen Details oder Varianten. Z.B. in der Darstellung eines auf dem Rücken schwimmenden Teufels, der seinen gigantischen Penis als Segel benutzt, doch dieses Segel trägt nun die Aufschrift 'Voz'. 7 der Zeichnungen zeigen vollkommen eigenständige Motive. Die meisten tragen am Rand in Bleistift eine Zahl; sofern es Seitenzahlen sind, könnte es sich um ein wohl nicht realisiertes Druckprojekt handeln. Tafeln leicht angeschmutzt mit Abreibungen. Ränder mit kleinen Läsuren.

Over 500 engravings from designs of W. Croome and other artists including six colored plates using the cromolithography process. Cromolithography was developed in the 1840s and this book, published in 1850, is an early example of the use of this process for printing color illustrations. All 6 color plates are present with the original tissue guards on each. Each plate is in fine condition. Many of the plates in this book have been reproduced and sold individually. Especially popular to reproduce is the black and white plate of the "Texas Ranger" on page 356. 640 pages. A very important book of the history of Mexico, Texas, and the Southwest . Due to the age of the book foxing is present on all pages, but the clarity of the text or illustrations is not affected. A 1 1/2 in closed tear is at the top of page 11. The book has an early owner's name written in that has not been identified. This book has been thoroughly inspected for missing pages and illustrations and any defects. The book has been rated as in Near Fine condition. A superb copy that you will likely not find anywhere in this condition.

        "Mr Briggs receiving a proper invitation from Major Plumper to come over again to Ireland in the Hunting Season and have a day with the Galway Blazers-Mr B , says he would like it extremely immeasurably "

      n.p., [c. 1850]. Approx. 5-3/4 x 8-1/4 inches. Pencil and watercolor on paper, signed "John Leech", mounted on board, matted. . John Leech (1817-1864) was one of the most prolific and successful of the English artists and caricaturists of the mid 19th century. "His humour was like his talent, gentle, warm-hearted and positive, his world, the ups and downs of middle class life, the sports of the squirearchy, and the peccadilloes of army officers and undergraduates" (Houfe). The conventions of social humor he established with his first contributions to the newly founded Punch, in 1841, lasted into the 1920s, but his greatest fame came through his book illustrations, particularly those for Surtees's sporting novels. "Extravagantly praised by Ruskin, Leech's often careless but never crude drawings have survived in charm and humour to give us a refreshing glimpse of mid-Victorian society." (Houfe)

        ACCOMMODATION BILL

      1850. Fine. PHILLIPS, Watts. AN ACCOMMODATION BILL. Drawn by Watts Phillips, which he trusts will be accepted by the public. [London]: D. Bogue, [n.d., circa 1850]. First edition. 18 leaves of plates, accordion fold, in the original illustrated paper boards. 5 1/2 by 3 7/8 in. (13.7 x 9.8 cm). Covers have a touch of rubbing and edgewear, and some general light soiling, else a fine and quite pleasing copy. Title information is taken from the illustrated cover. The story is a satire relating the trials of trying to recover a loan made to a friend; the back cover, showing a fly caught in a spider's web, provides a graphic summation of the tale. Watts Phillips (1825-1874) was the only pupil of George Cruikshank. He was an early contributor to Punch, and the founder of the short-lived periodical Journal for Laughter. He gradually abandoned caricature and illustration for success as a dramatist and, less successfully, as a novelist. (D.N.B.; Houfe, Dict. of Brit. Bk. Illus. & Caric.).

        Histoire Naturelle des Crustacés, des Arachnides et des Myriapodes...Précédée de l'Histoire Naturelle des Annélides par M. le Comte De Castelnau. Paris. Société Bibliophile 1850.

      In 8°, bella leg. coeva in mz. marocchino marrone, dorso a cinque nervi, con filettature e titolo impresso in oro, sguardie marmorizzate,  bel ex - libris nel primo foglio di risguardo, pp.(4) - 600 - (2), testo su due colonne; 46 belle e nitide tavv. inc. in acciaio e colorate a mano, rappresentano più di 300 soggetti. Ottimo e raro esemplare, fioriture in alcune cc., dovute al tipo di carta. BrM(NH), 1188. Nissen ZBI, 2579. La prima ediz. di quest'opera è del 1840, la presenta è una riedizione della seconda. Non vi sono però sostanziali differenze tra le varie edizioni. Le tavole di questa ponderosa opera di Lucas (1814 - 1899), celebre naturalista francese, sono così distribuite: Anellides 8, Crustacés 20, Arachnides 13, Myriapodes 3, Monomorphus (attuali Insetti Apterigoti) 1, Anoploures 1. Era consuetudine del tempo trattare gli ultimi due gruppi insieme agli Aracnidi e ai Miriapodi, anziché, come sarebbe più ovvio, tra gli Insetti. Ogni gruppo ha le tavv. con una propria numerazione, c'è però da notare che la tav. 14 degli Arachnides è insieme alla tav.1 dei Myriapodes. Esemplari con le tavole colorate sono assai difficili da trovare.
