        Autograph letter signed.

      N. p. o. d. - 8vo. 2 pp. on bifolium. To Émile Schuffenecker, thanking him for arranging for Gauguin to travel to Paris by train: "Grand merci de votre lettre et de son envoi. Justement j’ai écrit à Bernard mon désir de partir pour Paris donc votre offre pour m’envoyer le voyage tombe à point et je l’accepte de grand cœur. Du reste à Paris je vais me débrouiller pour vendre quelque chose, vous serez donc remboursé je crois en peu de temps. Le 4 ou le 5 je me mets en chemin de fer. Et si je ne réussis pas pour le Toukin je vais tâcher de travailler en dehors de la peinture car il faut tenir la cape pendant quelque temps. Ou bien encore je pousserai le ministre des finances pour me donner en France n’importe quoi. Mais il faut que e sois à Paris pour cela. [ ]". - The French Post-Impressionist artist, painter, art teacher and art collector Émile Schuffenecker (1851-1934) was a close friend of Paul Gauguin and Odilon Redon, and one of the first collectors of works by Vincent van Gogh. Until the early 1890s when Gauguin and Schuffenecker quarrelled, Schuffenecker gave great support to Gauguin, encouraging him to take up a career as a painter. He also had the idea for the 1889 Exhibition at the Volpini Gallery, a key moment in Gauguin's influence on young painters.

        Quadro elementar das relações politicas, e diplomaticas de Portugal com as diversas potencias do mundo desde o principio da Monarchia Portugueza athe aos nossos dias .

      Paris, Em Casa de J.P. Aillaud, 1842-1851. - Together 8 volumes in 9. Large 8°, uniform contemporary half calf (minor wear), spines with raised bands in five compartments, gilt fillets, author in second compartment from head, short title in third, volume in fourth; all edges marbled. Silk ribbon marker in each volume. Scattered foxing and browning (a few pages here and there), but overall a fine copy. Seven volumes (in 8) of the 18-volume Quadro. *** The first seven volumes (in eight) of the earliest complete edition of one of the Visconde de Santarem's major works; one of 1,000 copies. The first edition, Lisbon, 1828, consisted of only one volume. This Paris edition, revised and expanded to eighteen volumes, 1842-1876, is "a classic and sought-after work" (Borba de Moraes). It includes diplomatic documents, treaties, and so on ranging from the twelfth century to 1770, with copiously annotated introductory commentary by Santarem. During Santarem's lifetime, these volumes plus volumes VIII (on France) and XIV (on England) were published, both in 1853. The remaining volumes were published by 1876.In this set, the first two volumes deal with relations between Spain and Portugal; volumes III-VII with relations between Portugal and France from 1121 to 1770. Volume VI is very difficult to find; this set has the 1850 reprint.The present set of the Quadro elementar includes the following volumes.I. Paris, 1842. lxxxiv, 394 pp.II. Paris, 1842. xxvi pp., (1 blank l.), 479 pp., (1 l. correcções).

Paris, 1851. lxv, 409 pp.The second Visconde de Santarem (1791-1856) has been called "the greatest figure in the history of Portuguese cartography" (Cortesão, History of Cartography I, 23); in fact, it was Santarem who coined the term "cartographia." He traveled to Brazil with the royal family in 1807 and held various diplomatic posts. He served as Keeper of the Royal Archives at Torre do Tombo from 1824 until 1833, when he was dismissed for political reasons. Although he spent the rest of his life in Paris, his standing with the Portuguese government later improved to the point that the government funded many of his publications, and appointed him Keeper of the Torre do Tombo without requiring him to return to Portugal.*** Innocêncio V, 436-7, VII, 31-37: vols.

Thereafter the Punjab was ruled by a British Resident. With the stirrings of a second rebellion, Edwardes, despite any military training, raised a body of soldiers and defeated rebels loyal to a local Sikh leader. After numerous battles throughout the area, the local governor surrendered following negotiations with Edwardes. As a result of his deeds, he became quite famous and celebrated back in England.Edwardes (1819-1868) returned to the Punjab on a number of occasions, acting as a political appointee posed with the task of maintaining order in the area. For his role in securing the British victory during the War, he is known as the "Hero of Multan.". [Attributes: First Edition]

        Life of Thomas Stothard, R.A. with personal reminiscences

      Bradbury & Evans for John Murray, London 1851 - (14 5/8 x 10 3/4 inches). Lithographic portrait frontispiece, on india paper mounted, additional title within decorative wood-engraved border printed in bistre, title with wood-engraved headpiece, numerous wood-engraved illustrations printed in bistre, extra-illustrated with approximately 1,344 additional items (including 1 autograph letter signed from the author, 8 original pen, ink and wash drawings by Stothard, 6 original watercolour drawings by Stothard, and 1,323 engravings after Stothard including 14 by William Blake). 19th-century red morocco gilt by Riviere, covers with wide decorative borders of filets and a decorative roll of stylized foliage and flower-heads with stylized flower-spray cornerpieces, spines in seven compartments with raised bands, lettered in the second and third, the others with elaborate repeat decoration of massed small tools, gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, gilt edges (small expert repair to head of vol.VIII) A unique collection of Stothard's work, based around the first edition of the first full biography of the artist by his daughter-in-law, expansively extra-illustrated with original watercolours, drawings and engravings after Stothard by many of the greatest engravers of the late-18th and early 19th century, including Stothard's friend William Blake 'In 1779 Stothard commenced his career as an illustrator of books, being employed to illustrate Ossian and Hervey's Naval History. But his principal employers were Bell and Harrison, and in this year his numerous designs for Bell's Poets and Harrison's Novelist's Magazine began to be published. The first of the latter was a scene from Joseph Andrews (dated 1 Dec.), and in the following year he made no less than 148 drawings for this publication, for which he was paid a guinea apiece. He also made many drawings for the Ladies' Magazine in this and the following years, and a number of small but spirited drawings of the famous actors and actresses of the day. Among the prose works illustrated by him were novels by Fielding, Smollett, Richardson, and Sterne, Ridley's Tales of the Genii, Paltock's Peter Wilkins, Don Quixote, Gil Blas, Robinson Crusoe, the Arabian Nights, the Vicar of Wakefield, and Gulliver's Travels. These designs made a new departure in book illustration by their variety of invention, their literary sympathy, their spirit and their grace. Those to Peregrine Pickle and Peter Wilkins have been specially admired, but Stothard never surpassed those to Clarissa Harlowe for elegance, or those to Tristram Shandy for delicate humour. He may be said to have founded the types of Sancho Panza and Uncle Toby, afterwards adopted by his friend Charles Robert Leslie and others. To this period also belong a few charming illustrations to Ritson's Songs (1783). A little later (1788-9) came his illustrations to the Pilgrim's Progress, in which he found a region of pure but very human allegory well suited to his gentle imagination. To 1790 belong his illustrations to Robinson Crusoe, published by John Stockdale, and engraved by Medland, a series of great beauty (re-engraved by C. Heath, and published by Cadell thirty years later); and also a set of six charming groups of children at school and at play. Besides these more important designs, he executed a number of headpieces, tailpieces, frontispieces, and vignettes of all kinds, including some charming miniature drawings of royal festivities. He designed even shop-cards and fashion plates, for, though popular, he was poorly paid, and, having married in 1783, had to provide for an increasing family. It was in 1793 also that his first illustrations to Rogers's Pleasures of Memory were executed. The first edition of the poem in the British Museum, illustrated by Stothard, is dated 1794, but there are two engravings in the print-room (one of them the delightful Hunt the Slipper) which are dated 1793. In 1796. appeared his illustrations to the Fables of Flora, which are remarkable for the gracefulness of th [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

One of the most important and comprehensive works on Peruvian archaeology, virtually the earliest by a Peruvian, and the first of its kind; it deals with the original inhabitants, history and political system, language, religion, objects, costumes, ceremonies, monuments, burials & mummifications, and such. Rivero (1798 - 1857) was a prominent Peruvian scientist and archaeologist, Director to the National Museum of Lima. Tschudi (1818 - 1889) was a Swiss naturalist and explorer; he journeyed to Peru in 1838, where he would stay for five years, mainly in the Cordilleras of the Andes, from there he went to Brazil where he continued his research; it is, however, his stay in Peru that interest us. "A work of great importance on the ethnology and antiquities of Peru. It treats on the history, government, religion, language, science and arts of the Incas prior to the Spanish invasion, and contains the earliest authentic delineation of their architectural and other remains. The plates, which comprise upwards of eighty engravings, were executed with great care and finely coloured. The original price of the two volumes was about $35." (Sabin). The album contains a chromolithographic title, illustrated with the portraits of 14 Incas carved on the massive "Puerta" with a view of the Peruvian landscape and fauna, and 59 impressive colour and tinted lithographed plates, showing mommies, objects, ornaments, tapestries, relics, monuments, weapons & ruins. Sabin, 71643.

        Exceedingly rare map of Istanbul

      Extraordinarily rare map of Istanbul, commissioned by the modernizer of the Ottoman Empire Sultan Mahmud II. The map shows the region surrounding Istanbul, as well as the city itself, with a title vignette in the upper right corner, in Turkish; it also incorporates two inset views in the left corner. The map is based upon that of Graf Helmuth Karl Bernhard von Moltke (1800 - 1891), a German soldier, Field Marshall, and Chief of Staff of the Prussian Army for thirty years; in 1835 he visited Constantinople, where he met Sultan Mahmud II: what was supposed to be a short stay, brought as result a commission from the Sultan to aid in the modernization of the Ottoman Empire´s army. The duration of his stay was stretched to 2 years, surveying the city, the Bosphorus, the Dardanelles, and the surrounding area, learning Turkish, and getting acquainted with the region. Back home, he published a few works on his time spent in Turkey. The map has all characters in Turkish, definitely addressed to the local market, and was printed by the Mekteb-i fünun-i harbiyye, created in the 1840´s.

        London Labour and the London Poor;

      London: George Woodfall and Son; Griffin, Bohn and Company,, 1851 & 1861. A cyclopædia of the condition and earnings of those that will work, those that cannot work, and those that will not work. The London Street-Folk. 3 volumes, large octavo (228 x 150 mm). Uniformly bound in contemporary red half morocco, marbled paper sides, titles to spine gilt in compartments, marbled edges and endpapers. Portrait frontispiece to vol. 1, 81 full page line engravings. The plates in vol. 1 are bound out of listed order. Minor rubbing to extremities, top edges dust toned; an excellent set. An attractive set in a strictly contemporary binding of Mayhew's "seminal study of London street life in the middle of the century" (ODNB). Mixed editions with volume 1 from the first edition, published in 1851, and volumes 2 and 3 from the second edition published in 1861. The basis of this work was a series of 82 articles published from October 1849 until December 1850 in the Morning Chronicle, entitled Labour and the Poor. The series was hugely popular, attracting enthusiastic letters from readers and resulting in the establishment of a special Labour and the Poor Fund. This work was considered "required reading for anyone interested in the minutest details of Victorian lower-class life, such as what kinds of foods were sold on the streets, how financial transactions with street-sellers were conducted, and how vendors 'cried' their wares. Mayhew provided 'in embryo at least … a theory of the specificity of the London economy which in turn made intelligible the economic behaviour of the London poor' (Jones, 263)" (ODNB). Such was the popularity of the original work that it was reissued with additions in 1861, 1862, 1864, and 1865, and "influenced contemporary literature and popular entertainments as readily as it helped to shape Victorian social theories" (ODNB). Volume 1 with the contemporary ownership inscription of Trinity College Cambridge, fellow and clergyman Henry Richards Luard (1825–1891) to the front binder's blank. Alongside his work in University administration Luard edited for the Master of the Rolls Series a long list of works, including the popular Annales monastici (published between 1864 and 1869) which "is still the standard and unchallenged edition of this text ... upon which his reputation as a historian chiefly rests" (ODNB).

        39 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Hugstetten, Freiburg u.a., 1851-1865. Zus. 148 S., 8° bzw. Gr.-8°. Reichsfreiherr Heinrich Bernhard von Andlaw-Birseck war der Sohn des badischen Ministers Reichsfreiherrn Konrad Karl von Andlaw-Birseck (1763-1839) und dessen Ehefrau Sophie von Schakmin. Der badische Diplomat Reichsfreiherr Franz Xaver von Andlaw-Birseck (1799-1876) war sein älterer Bruder. Heinrich Bernhard Reichsfreiherr von Andlaw-Birseck stand 1821-1825 im badischen Militärdienst und machte sich 1835-1866 als Mitglied der Ersten badischen Kammer durch konsequente Vertretung katholischer und feudaler Prinzipien bemerklich; auch agitierte er in Deutschland für die Grundsätze der katholischen Kirche und spielte auf den Wanderversammlungen der katholischen Vereine durch seine populäre Beredsamkeit eine wichtige Rolle. Er starb 3. März 1871 auf seiner Besitzung Hugstetten bei Freiburg. - Andlaw-Birseck schrieb u.a. „Der Aufruhr und Umsturz in Baden, als eine natürliche Folge der Landesgesetzgebung“ (Freiburg, 1850), „Priestertum und christliches Leben“ (Freiburg, 1865) sowie mehrere Flugschriften polemischen Inhalts. - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius\' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - Versand D: 12,00 EUR Andlaw-Birseck, Mislin, Baden, Brief, Letter, Lettre, Briefe, Autograph, Autographe, Autographen, Autograf, Autografe, Autografen, Signatur, Signiert, Signed, Signature, Unterschrift, Eigenhändig, Handschrift, Handschriften, Manuscript, Manuscrit, ALS, A.L.S., LAS, L.A.S.

        Entomographie de la Russie. Tome V. Lepidoptères de la Russie. I. Nymphalides.

      Moscow, Société Imperiale des Naturalistes, 1851. 4to (30.5 x 24.2 cm). Half title, title page, dedication page; ii, 151 pp., 16 finely engraved plates, all hand-coloured and occasionally heightened with Gum Arabic. Original printed wrappers.l A very rare and beautiful work by Johann Gotthelf Fischer de Waldheim (1771-1853), who studied medicine in Leipzig, then travelled to Paris with his friend Alexander von Humboldt where he studied under Cuvier. In 1804 he became professor of natural history at Moscow University. One year later he founded the famous "Société Impériale des Naturalistes de Moscou". Fischer's main interests were palaeontology and entomology. His entomological interest culminated in his five-volume overview of insects from the Russian empire: "Entomographia Imperii Rossici". It is one of the rarest, best-illustrated and most sought-after works on Russian insects. This rare, late section was jointly written with the German entomologist Eduard von Eversmann (1794-1860) who, at the time, was professor of zoology in Kasan. It deals with colourful Macrolepidoptera (Argynnis, Melitaea, Vanessa, Limenitis, etc.). Handwritten, signed dedication by De Waldheim in the front wrapper top margin. Text uncut. Some toning to a few text leaves, slight bump to lower inner corner. The plates are stunningly coloured and absolutely clean. A very good copy. Hagen I, p. 235; Horn-Schenkling, 6146, 6632; Junk Rara, 78; Nissen ZBI, 1377.
