        A Harlot's Progress

      Ernst Ludwig Riepenhausen 1850 - Six engravings. Image 6.5 x 8.5". Sheet measures 10.5 x 14.75" Determined to prove that eighteenth-century society could witness tragedy and moral catharsis in their own time and city, rather than only in paintings of Ancient Greece or the New Testament, William Hogarth created this modern moral series about a naïve young woman who is seduced into prostitution and suffers the terrible consequences for her transgressions. Throughout the series, Hogarth meant to highlight the many temptations and hypocrisies prevalent in urban life. No one is without blame, neither the protagonist nor the city and religious authorities who are in charge of regulating crime and sin, and therefore, all of these figures appear and are critiqued in Hogarth's renowned satire. In the first plate, young Moll Hackabout has recently arrived from the country and is immediately praised for her fresh beauty by a prosperous-looking matron. Unfortunately for her, the matron is Mother Needham, a notorious bawd in eighteenth-century London. Moll's prospective fallen virtue is foreshadowed by the minister's horse knocking over some buckets as two men--a rake and a pimp--watch the scene. The second plate shows Moll as a pampered courtesan and mistress to a wealthy Jewish merchant. Unbeknownst to Moll's benefactor, her lover is sneaking out the backdoor struggling to carry his sword and clothing. Moll attempts to distract the merchant by knocking over the table sending the tea-set crashing to the floor. In the third plate, Moll now works as a common prostitute in Convent Garden. All around the room are scattered souvenirs of Moll's various lovers, which include a wig box above Moll's bed belonging to James Dalton, a well-known highwayman who was eventually hanged in 1730. In the background, Justice John Gonson, a social reformer and famous raider of disorderly houses, enters with his bailiffs to arrest Moll for prostitution. During the time that "A Harlot's Progress" was published, there was a new civil enthusiasm for cracking down on prostitution and here, Hogarth mocks the inept system which did not prevent Moll's seduction but still punishes her for her misdeeds. The fourth plate finds Moll in prison, forced to beat hemp for rope-making. Another woman fondles Moll's fabric and winks at the viewer while Moll also gazes at us in despair. Many of the other prisoners have been incarcerated for prostitution and debt.The fifth print finds Moll released from prison and now dying of syphilis in a dingy room beside her young son. All seems lost as her physicians dumbly argue over their prescriptions while Moll's attendant attempts to protect her from any more of their purgative treatments. In the final plate of the series, all of Moll's "friends" gather around her coffin. However, most of the mourners are more preoccupied with themselves or each other than with their friend's unfortunate passing. Here, Hogarth gives the viewer little comfort, as a young prostitute looks upon Moll in her casket in a clear allusion to her own fate. The series was first displayed as oil on canvas and later engraved by Hogarth for wider publication in 1732. This edition is after Hogarth and engraved by Ernst Ludwig Riepenhausen circa 1850 for a German collection of Hogarth's works, "Erklärung Hogarthischen." Although the prints are stained and foxed, this wear still doesn't distract from the beautiful quality of the engraving of the Riepenhausen edition. William Hogarth (1697-1764) is considered by many scholars and print enthusiasts as the grandfather of English graphic satire, but he was also an accomplished oil painter, portraitist, engraver, and draughtsman. Hogarth mastered the art of depicting human nature and all of its hypocrisies in society with graphic satire. The universality of his humor and the all-too-human characters featured in his works make Hogarth's satires remarkable. This print represents the epitome of Hogarth's skills as an artist and as a conscientious observer of hu

        Public Squares, Parks, and Places in the City of New York

      D.T. Valentine, 1850. unbound. Map. Lithograph. Image measures 8 3/4 x 21 7/8" This map, compiled by Francis Nicholson in 1838, assembles 17 squares, parks, and public places in New York onto a single sheet. Locations include Battery, Bowling Green, Duane Park, The Park [at City Hall], Hudson Square, Five Point Park, Abingdon Square, Washington Square, Tompkins Square, Union Place, Stuyvesant Square, Bloomingdale Square, Gramercy Park, Madison Square, Hamilton Square, Manhattan Square, Observatory Place and Mount Morris. Each map shows the layout of the surrounding streets ad give's the place's dimensions and acreage. This edition of the map was lithographed by H.A. Robinson in the mid 19th-century and published in the 1850 edition of the "Manual of The Corporation of the City of New York." It is in good condition with minor browning at the folds. The left outside margin is incomplete but does not interfere with the image. D.T. Valentine (1801-1869) served as the Deputy to the Clerk of the Common Council for thirty-seven years and began publishing the Manuals in 1841. The Manuals were directories of extensive historical and contemporary records of New York, richly illustrated with maps, lithographs, and engravings. This unusual yet charming maps serves as a reminder of the rapid taming of nature that accompanied New York's 19th century industrialization and development.

        MEMORIA DA EXPEDIÇÃO A CASSANGE

      - COMMANDADA PELO MAJOR GRADUADO Francisco de Salles Ferreira. EM 1850. ESCRIPTA PELO CAPITÃO MOVEL D?AMBRIR ? Na Imprensa Silviana. 1854. De 22x14 cm. com 129 págs. Encadernação com lombada e cantos em pele. Preserva as capas de brochura. Primeira e única edição muito rara. Inocêncio tem a data de edição errada. Fonte muito importante para o estudo da etnologia, da antropologia, da história de Angola e da presença dos portugueses neste território durante o século XIX. Relatório da expedição militar a Cassange, que partiu de Pungo-andongo em 28 de Novembro de 1850 para restaurar os direitos de Portugal e punir a revolta do Jaga Cassange Pascoal Machado, que entretanto tinha assassinado o novo Jaga imposto pelas autoridades portuguesas e várias outras pessoas. A expedição voltou ao ponto de partida em 13 de Abril de 1851, tendo destruído acampamentos dos rebeldes, provocado numerosas baixas, apoiado a escolha de outro Jaga fiel a Portugal e aprisionado apoiantes e familiares do chefe rebelde, que, no entanto, conseguiu fugir e voltaria a provocar graves incidentes logo no ano seguinte. A obra inclui um prólogo em que o autor revela que a sua motivação para publicar o presente trabalho foi ter lido um artigo no Nº 2878 de A Revolução de Setembro, de 22 de Outubro de 1851, com grandes imprecisões, que julga ser seu dever corrigir. Segue-se a Memória propiamente dita até à página 67 e o Diário até à página 95, que descreve a perseguição ao rebelde em fuga, executada pelo autor no comando da sua divisão, que para esse fim se separou do corpo principal. Inclui uma história dos Cassanges, recolhida de tradições orais, minuciosas descrições dos seus costumes, das cerimónias pelo falecimento e eleição dos chefes e a cerimónia do baptizado do novo Jaga e dos seus nobres.

Van links naar rechts zien we de Belv?d?re toren; het Valkhofpark en de Heidense Kapel (uit de 11de-eeuw); De Veerpoort; de kantoren van de Verenigde Nijmeegse Stoomboot Maatschappijen; de Kraanpoort aan de Grotestraat; de stedelijke hijskraan waarmee schepen werden geladen en gelost, aangedreven door een tredmolen; de Sint Stevens Kerk; de Meipoort; de Sint Stevenspoort; en de haven met molen. Op de rivier zijn de gierpont, zeilschepen en raderboten nauwkeurig afgebeeld.De stedelijke verlichting bestond tot midden negentiende eeuw uitsluitend uit olielantaarns, vanaf 1850 gaat men over op straatverlichting op uit steenkolen bereid pijp-gaz. De stad barstte in die tijd uit haar voegen. Er was geen ruimte voor uitbreiding en er waren weinig middelen van bestaan terwijl het inwonertal bleef groeien. De roep om afbraak van de wallen en aansluiting op het landelijke spoorwegnet werd steeds luider. De spoorwegverbinding naar Kleef kwam er in 1865. In 1874 wordt de vesting opgeheven en er werd rigoureus gesloopt. Van de middeleeuwse wallen bleven slechts enkele stukken muur, twee bastions en de kruittoren gespaard. Het aangezicht van de stad zoals we dat hier zien, verandert dan sterk.Prijs: ?6.500,- (incl. lijst).

        Rotterdam, Oude Haven - Sabatier, ca. 1850.

      DE OUDE HAVEN TE ROTTERDAM.?Rotterdam Le Port?. Lithografie gemaakt door L?on Jean-Babtiste Sabatier, uitgegeven rond 1850 door Jacomme voor Bulla & Jouy te Parijs, Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 39,5 x 57 cm.Rond 1850 heeft Rotterdam nog de kenmerkende driehoeksvorm, die begrensd wordt door de vestinggrachten aan Coolsingel en Goudsesingel en door de Maas.Rotterdam is een kleine maar aardige stad, die op menige buitenstaander indruk maakt. Het welgestelde deel van de Rotterdammers woont bezuiden de Hoogstraat, waar de havens zijn. In dit buitendijkse deel van Rotterdam, de ?Waterstad? (op de prent links), houden eb en vloed de grachten schoon. In het binnendijkse deel van de stadsdriehoek, benoorden de Hoogstraat, wonen dichtopeengepakt de arbeiders die in de haven en de industrie werken. Dit overbevolkte deel van de stad stinkt omdat menselijk en dierlijk afval (illegaal) in het nagenoeg stilstaande water in sloten en grachten wordt gestort.Halverwege de negentiende eeuw veranderde het karakter van de Rotterdamse haven. Lange tijd had het accent gelegen op de zogeheten ?eigenhandel?: handelaren kochten goederen in, sloegen die op in pakhuizen en verkochten ze weer. Rond 1850 werd de ?transitohandel? belangrijker: de klanten in het (veelal Duitse) achterland kochten hun handelswaar direct bij de producent en lieten ze in Rotterdam, eventueel na bewerking, alleen nog maar overslaan op binnenvaartschepen.Op de prent zien we in de Oude Haven, tussen Geldersche kaai en Spaansche kaai, zee- en binnenvaartschepen in de weer. In de verte torent de Laurenskerk.L?on Jean-Babtiste Sabatier (? - 1887) was een Franse schilder, graveur en tekenaar die meerdere schilderachtige stadsgezichten maakte. Hij exposeerde in de Salon te Parijs van 1827 tot 1870 en kreeg een bronzen medaille in 1839. Een ander stadsgezicht gemaakt door Sabatier vindt u hier.Prijs: ?2.250,- (incl. lijst).

        Théâtre Akademique der rühmlichst bekannten Geschwister Bäse, verbunden mit der weltberühmten Somnambüle, Nachfolgerin der Madame Lenormand, welche auf ihrer Durchreise, während ihres Hierseins einige Vorstellungen geben wird. (.) Die berühmte Somnambüle, Nachfolgerin der Mad. Lenormand, welche durch magnetischen Schlaf die Kunst besitzt, das Glück des Menschen von der Wiege bis zum Grabe auf das Deutlichste zu prophezeihen. (Unterzeichner:) Henry Bäse aus Braunschweig.

      (Dresden), Blochmann und Sohn, ca. 1850. - Plakat mit typograph. Text und 5 Holzschnitten. Blattgr.: 58 x 42 cm. Sehr berühmt oder erfolgreich mögen die Geschwister Bäse nicht gewesen sein, zumindest konnte ich keine weiteren Auftritte nachweisen. Als Nachfolgerinnen der berühmten französischen Wahrsagerin Marie Anne Lenormand (gest. 1843) bezeichneten sich zahlreiche Gauklerinnen auf europäischen Jahrmärkten. - Neben diesem Auftritt gab es u. a. noch: Ikarische Sylphiden-Gespiele der vier Brüder Bäse, Japanische Spiele und "La Trapez volonta" mit Rudolph Düsterhoff und "Dispensations adriennes" mit Frl. Linna Bäse. - Die hübschen Holzschnitte zeigen u. a. die Wahrsagerin mit verbunden Augen und einen feinen Herrn, dem wohl gerade die Zukunft vorhergesagt wird. Linke Ecken mit etwas Abschnitt, der obere linke Rand auf ca. 7 cm etwas beschnitten.

        Cape Town, Kaapstad - Isidore Deroy, c. 1850.

      RARE MID 19th- CENTURY VIEW OF CAPE TOWN (KAAPSTAD)?Vue de la ville du Cap situ?e au pied des montagnes de la Table et du Lion (Cap-de-Bonne-Esp?rance) - Vista de la ciudad del Cabo situada al pi? de las sierras de la Mesa y del Leon (Cabo-de-Buena-Esperanza).?? Drawn and lithographed by Isidore Deroy, published by L. Turgis in Paris around 1850. With original hand colouring. Size: 38 x 49,8 cm.This wonderful view of Cape Town is from Signal Hill overlooking the city, with Table Mountain and Lion?s Head peak in the background.In the late 16th century, Portuguese, French, Danish, Dutch and English ships regularly stopped over in Table Bay en route to the Indies. They traded tobacco, copper and iron with the local Khoikhoi (Hottentots) in exchange for fresh meat. In 1652, Jan van Riebeeck and others of the Dutch East India Company (VOC) were sent to the Cape to establish a way-station for ships travelling to the Dutch East Indies, and the Fort de Goede Hoop (later replaced by the Castle of Good Hope). The settlement grew slowly during this period, as it was hard to find adequate labour. This labour shortage prompted the authorities to import slaves from Indonesia and Madagascar.In the 18th century Great Britain moved to take control of the Dutch colonies. Britain captured Cape Town in 1795, but the Cape was returned to the Netherlands by treaty in 1803. British forces occupied the Cape again in 1806 following the battle of Bloubergstrand. In the Anglo-Dutch Treaty of 1814, Cape Town was permanently ceded to Britain. It became the capital of the newly formed Cape Colony, whose territory expanded very substantially through the 1800s. With expansion, came calls for greater independence from Britain, with the Cape attaining its own parliament in 1854.It was in those turbulent times that this very rare lithography was published as part of a series of city views under the heading ?Ports de Mer d?Afrique?.Price: ?1.450,- (incl. frame).
