        London, from the Upper Gallery of St. Paul's Cathedral; [together with] London, from the Upper Gallery of the Steeple of St. Bride's Church.

      London: For the Proprietor by E. Gambert, Junin & Co., [c.1850] - Steel engravings. Uncoloured. Size: 72.5 x 50 cm (28½ x 19½ inches) each. Presented in handmade silver gilt frames. Framed size: 84 x 65 cm. Very good condition. Apprenticed to an architect in 1819 aged 15, Allom attended the Royal Academy Schools as an architectural student from 1828, and was one of the founder members of the Institute of British Architects in 1834. His obituary in the Art Journal stated that "in his three-fold capacity of architect, artist and draughtsman few men were more widely known in the art world". As a student he supported himself by making drawings for albums of steel-engraved views, and "It is upon about 1500 designs for albums of topographical steel-engravings that his more prominent and lasting reputation rests" (ODNB). The combination of the architect's eye for accuracy and the draughtsman's skill in composition is clearly displayed in this fine pair of prints which combine to provide, from opposed viewpoints, a vertiginously spectacular panorama sweeping across London.

Celebre opera di dissacrante satira politica, soprattutto contro il Papato, la Francia e l'Austria, le cui tavole provengono prevalentemente dal giornale romano Don Pirlone, quotidiano apparso nel 1848 e 1849. Autore: Michelangelo Pinto Editore: Alessandro Fontana Anno di pubblicazione: 1850, seconda edizione. Opera completa I moti del 1848, detti anche rivoluzione del '48 o Primavera dei popoli furono un'ondata di moti rivoluzionari borghesi che sconvolsero l'Europa nel 1848 e nel 1849. Scopo dei moti fu abbattere i governi della Restaurazione per sostituirli con governi liberali. Il loro impatto storico fu così profondo e violento che nel linguaggio corrente è entrata in uso l'espressione «fare un quarantotto» per sottintendere una improvvisa confusione e scompiglio. La prima agitazione europea del 1848 si verificò in Italia: la rivoluzione siciliana che esplose il 12 gennaio di quell'anno, che rappresentò la prima miccia dell'esplosione europea. L'insurrezione siciliana, infatti, spinse in un primo momento i Borbone a concedere il ritorno nell'Isola alla costituzione del 1812. Seguì una rivoluzione a Napoli, il 27, che costrinse, due giorni dopo, Ferdinando II a promettere una Costituzione, promulgata l'11 febbraio. Lo stesso 11 febbraio Leopoldo II di Toscana, cugino primo dell'imperatore Ferdinando I d'Austria, concesse la Costituzione, nella generale approvazione dei suoi sudditi. L'esempio borbonico fu seguito da Carlo Alberto di Savoia con lo Statuto Albertino e da Papa Pio IX con lo Statuto Fondamentale. Solo il re piemontese mantenne però lo Statuto. In Sicilia il parlamento proclamò in marzo l'indipendenza, che sarebbe durata fino al maggio 1849. Nel napoletano la concessione e la successiva repressione delle libertà costituzionali, portò dal maggio al settembre di quell'anno a una serie di moti. In tutto il Regno Lombardo-Veneto scoppiarono rivolte, come le Cinque giornate di Milano che sfociarono nella prima guerra di indipendenza. Nello Stato Pontificio una rivolta interna estromise papa Pio IX dai suoi poteri temporali e portò alla costituzione della Repubblica Romana. La rivoluzione delle Cinque giornate di Milano e altre proteste indussero il Re Carlo Alberto a dichiarare guerra all'Austria. Le truppe vennero presto sconfitte e solo quelle francesi poterono far retrocedere gli austriaci. La successiva ascesa al trono di Vittorio Emanuele II fece del Piemonte il motore propulsore del processo di unificazione italiana che tuttavia si sarebbe ottenuto solo nel 1861. Per quanto i Moti del '48 furono sedati abbastanza velocemente, le vittime furono decine di migliaia: il destino della democrazia europea ci è sfuggito di mano dichiarerà Pierre-Joseph Proudhon. Gli storici concordano che la Primavera dei popoli fu, alla fin fine, soprattutto un sanguinoso fallimento, se si eccettua la concessione dello Statuto Albertino nel Regno di Sardegna da parte di Carlo Alberto di Savoia, l'unica costituzione non revocata di quelle concesse o votate nel 1848-49. Vi furono tuttavia radicali e notevoli effetti a lungo termine: Germania e Italia sarebbero presto arrivate all'unificazione facendo leva anche sulla necessità di autodeterminazione dei popoli. Analogamente l'Ungheria sarebbe giunta ad un parziale riconoscimento della propria autonomia (a discapito della popolazione slava) grazie all'Ausgleich del 1867. In Prussia e Austria fu abolito il feudalesimo, mentre in Russia fu eliminata la servitù della gleba nel 1861. L'Opera vanta 306 tavole allegorico - caricaturali sullo stato dell'Italia del tempo, incisione su rame ricca di significato e rappresentazione mediante satirica dissacrante della condizione della nostra penisola oppressa. Le tavole furono in parte riprese dal giornale romano Don Pirlone, quotidiano, uscito dal 1settembre 1848 al 2 luglio 1849 (con una interruzione dl 29 aprile al 7 maggio 1849), ma in parte furono realizzate appositamente per questa opera. Tra gli incisori sono presenti anche i nomi di Ratti, Vaiani, Monneret, Gallucci, Pichi, Masutti. Il titolo Don Pirlone deriva quasi sicuramente da una maschera creata dallo scrittore satirico Girolamo Gigli (1660 - 1722). Si trattava di una specie di Tartufo molieresco, ispirato ad una figura reale, il canonico Feliciati di Sarteano. Nei tre volumi l'avvocato Michelangiolo Pinto raccolse tutto il pubblicato del giornale, che fu il più temuto e allo stesso tempo il più apprezzato tra i molteplici giornali satirici che si pubblicavano nella Roma di Pio IX all'epoca delle grandi riforme volute dal Papa. I romani gli dedicarono perfino una canzone (Davanti un numero di gran persone - che mi salutano Viva Pirlone!). Anche gli avversari politici ne riconobbero l'efficacia e la bellezza delle tavole. Il 22 marzo 1849 apparve con il cappello frigio per incitare alla resistenza contro i francesi. Il Pinto, nato a Roma nel 1818, spentosi nel 1910, già comproprietario ed articolista del celebre periodico satirico "DonPirlone", riparò a Torino dopo la caduta della Repubblica Romana; scrivendo la presente opera egli vi trasfuse lo stesso mordace spirito polemico che aveva animato il quasi omonimo periodico: "Edotti dall'esperienza, sappiamo quale profonda traccia lascino nell'animo umano gli incancellabili colpi del ridicolo". Bertarelli, 6395. Bibliogr. d. età del Risorgimento, II, 249.

        BANVARD; OR THE ADVENTURES OF AN ARTIST; A BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH [wrapper title].

      London: Printed by Reed and Pardon, []. 1850 - [20]pp. Original pictorial wrappers. Wrappers lightly chipped around edges. Internally clean. Very good. A scarce biography and promotional pamphlet for John Banvard, the American painter, panoramist, and promoter whose lasting fame came from the massive panorama of the Mississippi River that he created and toured in America and Europe. This pamphlet, which provides extensive biographical information on Banvard, was created to promote his latest venture, an exhibition of paintings of the Old World and Palestine that were on view at the Hall of Art in Boston. The rear wrapper contains a distinguished set of endorsements of Banvard's work, from the likes of Edward Everett, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Charles Dickens, Bayard Taylor, and Queen Victoria, who had seen Banvard's Mississippi panorama via a command performance at Windsor Castle in 1849. The DAB dates the present London edition of this pamphlet to 1851, though it seems more likely that it was printed in 1850, the same year as the Paris edition. Banvard spent much of 1850 touring the Holy Land, conducting research for his paintings. An imprint line on the rear wrapper indicates that this pamphlet was actually printed in Boston. OCLC locates at total of only four copies. Scarce. SABIN 3225 (Paris ed. only). OCLC 81499447, 26517819.

        Household Words

      Office., Wellington Street, London. 1850 - 19 Volumes COMPLETE. From March 30th 1850 to May 28th 1859 a total of 479 issues with All the Christmas "Supplements" and the rarer "The Household Narrative" (On Politics, Crime and Statistics of events of the month or year), which was only published in the early numbers 1850-1851. All bound in the original drab olive green cloth blind stamped cloth, although several volumes are in plain cloth and are a variant green or light charcoal, so not quite uniform. It did happen that at the end of the year the binder may not have had any of the matching cloth, a more common occurrence than acknowledged today. There are a few pages with foxing, mainly on the prelims and odd title page, and hinges showing on volume 1. And perhaps slightly or less on a few others. The contents are in the main though excellent and these were stored in a wooden case for over 50 years. Paper although a cheap quality is all very good and except for a few pages all clean and tight and not brittle or flaky. A MOST complete set, no missing parts. RARE! *This series of Dickens's 1st edited magazine has some FAMOUS writers and books in the series as a whole, all FIRST editions, pre-book format.

Containing New and Simple Modes of Signalizing. Compiled and Invented with the Sanction and under the Especial Patronage of the Admiralty.

Contemporary polished calf presentation binding, green morocco label to the spine, low flat bands with gilt dotted roll, compartments attractively gilt with drawer handle tools, paired double fillet panels, gilt and in blind to both boards, gilt block of a sailor employing the "homograph" system of signalling gilt to the front board, foliate edge-roll, edges and endpapers marbled. Externally just a little rubbed, overly heavy front free endpaper loose, but hinges entirely sound, pale browning, a very good copy indeed. First 24 pages entirely lithographed with diagrams of semaphore, homograph and flag signalling, 11 of them with hand-colouring. First edition, this a prepublication presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the first blank; "Mrs. Holt with the author's most affectionate love, November 1849". The recipient was possibly Jemima Arabella, the author's aunt who married Sir John Holt. Extremely uncommon, OCLC shows just 6 locations for this first edition - BL, NLS, Oxford, Cambridge, NMM, Texas A & M - there were three subsequent editions which are equally as uncommon. Eardley-Wilmot was the fourth son of Sir John Eardley Eardley-Wilmot, Bart., MP for Warwickshire and Governor of Van Diemen's Land, present day Tasmania, by his first wife Elizabeth Emma, sister of the Arctic explorer Admiral Parry. He entered the Royal Naval College in 1828, and first embarked as First Class Volunteer on the Wolf, 18, Capt. William Hamley, in 1830, sailing for the East Indies "where we find him engaged, in unison with a fleet of Siamese proas, in various operations against Malay pirates, and present in particular at the blockade of the fortress of Quedah. He was also at Canton in the early part of 1832, when the Chinese first displayed symptoms of insolence and aggression" (O'Byrne). Subsequently saw service in the Miguelite Wars; in the Pacific "affording protection to to British property in the Sandwich Islands, [and] security to missionary interests at the Marquesas"; with Napier on the coast of Syria and at the blockade of Alexandria; and in China towards the end of the First Opium War. He rose to the rank of Rear Admiral, retired 1873, died 1881. He also published a guide for young officers, The Midshipman's Friend; or, Hints for the Cockpit, 1845, and a contribution to the manning debate, Manning the Navy - a Statement in which the Evils and Losses of the Present System are set forth, 1849.

        Aspect Général de Londres, vue prise de l'Abbaye de Westminster].

      Paris Appert. c. 1850 - Engraving with aquatint. Dimensions: 515 by 830mm (20.25 by 32.7 inches). The high vantage point is one of the towers of Westminster Abbey; the view of the Abbey in the foreground was ingeniously fabricated rather than observed. It does not show Victoria Street, opened 1851. Two mysterious tents are to be seen on the Lambeth waterfront between Westminster and Hungerford Bridges. Trains run to Waterloo Station, opened in 1848. The author of the print is, in later editions, given as 'Chapuis' [sic], but it seems more likely to have been the topographical draughtsman and lithographer Nicolas-Marie-Joseph Chapuy than any other artist spelling his name in the same way. The French-looking red-tiled roofs in the foreground suggest a foreigner's unfamiliarity with the English scene. A related drawing, measuring 532 by 1485mm. (21 by 58.5") was auctioned at Christies, 21 June 1974 (lot 167), and a related oil painting measuring 546 by 1498mm. (21.5 by 59") was auctioned at Christies South Kensington on 5 September 2002. It was purchased by Christopher Wood. This painting was a copy of the sixth state of the print. The print appears to be one of a series of bird's-eye views of major European cities: an 'Aspect Général de Rome' by Appert, an 'Aspect Général de Naples' by Appert after A. Testard, and an 'Aspect Général de Paris' after A. Testard have all been seen. The Bibliothèque Nationale's 'Inventaire du Fonds Français après 1808, vol 1', lists an edition of the London 'Aspect' printed in 1857 by Chardon. It also mentions A. Appert bird's-eye view of St. Petersburg. The Fogg Art Museum has a proof before letters, the image of which appears to correspond with this. The present example is in the fifth state (of seven) with King's Cross Station added.

        Salt Print Photograph of an Elderly African-American Woman

      , 1850. 1850. Very Good. Oval salt print photograph mounted on decorated card mount. Image is approximately 5.25" x 7.25" at its widest points. Some soiling and small nicks or tears on the mount, slight evidence of mounting on the verso, else nice and near fine. Image of an elderly African-American woman with one elbow resting on a table, wearing a turban, and holding a kerchief. The image has been slightly enhanced, probably contemporarily, with ink and wash on the hair, turban, tablecloth, and on the dress. Sadly no additional information is obvious, and annoyingly, old pencil notes on the verso have been erased. Salt print photography was invented in 1839, and was popular up until about 1860. A striking image.

        Captain Austin's expedition in search of Sir John Franklin. Intrepid. Resolute. Assistance. Pioneer.

      circa 1850 - Linen broadside (50 x 36 cm) produced on the departure of the Austin Search Expedition, printed in red, large pictorial image with text and portrait vignette beneath, decorative border, light fold marks, an excellent example. A rare and highly decorative piece of memorabilia commemorating a chapter in the best known of Arctic searches. The broadside describes and illustrates the hydrogen balloons: "Should the wind prove favourable on arriving at the edge of the ice, these natural messengers will be sent up to announce the approach of the searching expedition." In 1850, Austin (1801-65), was appointed leader of the British Naval Franklin Search Expedition, 1850-51, serving as captain of HMS Resolute, sent by the Admiralty to search for Sir John Franklin's missing Northwest Passage expedition by way of Baffin Bay and Lancaster Sound. During the expedition, Erasmus Ommanney discovered the first evidence that Franklin had in fact reached the Canadian Arctic. The expedition also conducted extensive coastal surveys and observations of topography, geology, fauna and meteorology. Sotheby's recently (30th September 2014) sold a copy of this broadside, described by them as "unrecorded", for £9375 as part of the Franklin Brooke-Hitching collection.

        Die Krankheiten der Neugeborenen und Säuglinge vom clinischen und pathologisch-anatomischen Standpunkte bearbeitet.

      Wien, Carl Gerold, 1850-53, 8, VIII, 131 VI, 198 VIII, 208 VIII, 268 pp., 4 Teile in feinem Pappband im Stil. d.Zt. frisches Exemplar. First Edition, a complete set of Bednar's extensive work on diseases of the new-born and the infant. The fist part deals with diseases of the intestines, the second with those of the nerves part there is on illness of the respiratory organs, heart, liver, glands, eyes and ears, skin blood etc. and concludes with hereditary syphilis. Also included is a chapter on teeth and teething."Alois Bednar (1816-1888) was a famous Viennese paediatrician and one of the most original paediatrician in Europe. His description of aphthae of the palate in the newborn ("Bednár's aphthae") is in vol 1, p. 104 of his book.""Alois Bednar . . . was, in the words of Jacobi, 'one of the most original scientific pediatrists of Europe,' an active and enlightened teacher. . . . He was author of a treatise on the diseases of newborn and suckling infants, in four parts (1850-53) . . ., a pediatric Lehrbuch (1856), and a treatise on infant diet (1857). . . . His pediatric treatise is distinguished by most careful accounts of the different toxemias of infancy, which were so plentiful in the foundling asylums of his time" (Abt/Garrison, History of Pediatrics, p. 92)."It was with this work that Bednar achieved a breakthrough, and it was in this work that he fully displayed his great skill in clinical observation and graphic description" Lesky, Vienna Medical School of the 19th Century, p. 142Erste Ausgabe! - Mit Bednar und seinem hier vorliegendem Werk "ist der deutschen Kinderheilkunde ihr 'Billard', der Billard der Rokitansky-Schule, erwachsen (Lesky). Bednar war der Erste, der Konsequenzen aus der großen Entdeckungen seines Freundes Semmelweis für die Kinderheilkunde, gezogen hatte. Während sich Kussmaul (in seinen Jugenderinnerungen) anläßlich eines Besuches in Wien 1847 noch über die Häufigkeit der septischen Erkrankungen im Findelhaus entsetzt, konnte Bednar bereits 1850 ( Tl. I. S. 98 Anm.) feststellen: "Die Sepsis des Blutes bei Neugeborenen ist jetzt eine große Seltenheit geworden, welches wir der folgereichen und der größten Beachtung würdigen Entdeckung des Dr. Semmelweis . zu verdanken haben, welcher die Ursache und die Verhütung des früher mörderisch wütenden Puerperalfiebers glücklich erforsch hat". - Bednar beschreibt im Tl 1, S. 104 die später nach ihm benannten Aphthen der hinteren Mundschleimhaut.Garrison & Morton No.6335 Wellcome II-129 Grulee 823 Lesky, 166 etc. Peiper

        Vue d'Odessa prise du port la Quarantaine.

      Nitche Odessa s 1850 - Lithograph (45 x 57 cm). Marginal repairs, some light waterstains. Fine lithographed view of Odessa by the Simferopol born artist. Born in 1822 in the family of a German colonist and artist Johann Ludwig, Friedrich (Feodor) Gross, moved to Odessa in the 1840s, where he started working at the printmaking studio of Alexander Braun. Despite the competitive environment of the capital of the Novorossiysk region, which was home to many prominent painters, works of the young artist got noticed and received recognition from the demanding public. Such support enabled him to publish an album titled "Vidy Krima" [Views of Crimea] in 1846, which included 54 plates that he lithographed himself after his paintings. Another artist's project was a series of views of Odessa that included "Richelieu Lyceum", "View on the Prakticheskaya harbour", "Quarantine", "Boulevard" and many more. In 1854-55 a local publisher Frantsev & Nitchean issued an album with his fifteen selected views of Odessa. In 1857 Gross returned back to Crimea and settled in Kerch, where he worked at the local museum of antiquities eventually becoming its director. "The name of Feodor Ivanovich Gross has only recently been recovered from the oblivion. Now he can be rightfully called one of the first native Crimean artists, who dedicated his life to celebrating the beauty of his native land " (M.R. Malgina, "Zhivopisnaya Tavrida. Litografii XIX veka" [Picturesque Tavrida. Lithographs of XIX century]. Sonat, 2011).
