        La pena dei lavori forzati considerata nella sua applicazione pratica ossia i bagni marittimi negli Stati sardi studiati sotto l'aspetto economico-statistico-igienico-morale ed al confronto della riforma penitenziaria

      Ferrando, 1851. In 8, pp. XXIII + 486 con tavv. sinottiche n.t., 2 grandi tavv. sinottiche f.t. piu' volte rip. e 1 tav. in lit. acquerellata a mano all'antip. Nota manoscritta coeva a p. VII. D. rifatto. Qualche alone ai p. Br. ed. Saggio relativo alle abitudini di vita dei condannati ai lavori forzati presso i bagni marittimi negli Stati Sardi. In particolare, l'A. cita l'impiego dei condannati al porto di Genova nei lavori alla darsena e all'arsenale. Oltre a coloro incaricati dello spurgo del porto, ci sono magazzinieri, imbianchini, fabbri, ferrai, falegnami, cordai, maestri d'ascia, stagnai, calderai, bottai. Ad essi il Governo forniva il vitto giornaliero che consisteva in una razione di 'trentadue oncie di pane, piu' quattr'oncie di fave per la minestra [...]. Una giubba rossa di molettone, una berretta rossa in lana, e pantaloni di tela, una camicia e scarpe, componevano il loro vestiario'. Non tutti i condannati erano incatenati a due a due; alcuni erano liberi, altri portavano al piede una grossa palla di cannone. Successivamente, nel 1848, vennero apportate modifiche al regolamento che disciplinava i lavori forzati nei bagni degli Stati sardi: in particolare i condannati venivano suddivisi in categorie a seconda della durata della pena e dal tipo di reato commesso. L'A. si sofferma poi sulla pena della 'berlina', che consisteva nel far passare il prigioniero in mezzo alle vie della citta' mentre veniva sottoposto al pubblico insulto e ludibrio. Massone si scaglia contro questa sanzione ritenendola inutile e dannosa perche' non faceva che accrescere l'astio del detenuto nei confronti della societa'. Si stabili' inoltre, nei nuovi regolamenti, una paga giornaliera per i prigionieri, liberi di utilizzare il compenso come preferivano, purche' lo usassero sempre per migliorare il vitto giornaliero. Alcuni lavoratori speciali, detti 'di grazia', erano totalmente liberi dai ferri e potevano uscire in citta' senza scorta. Praticamente anche qui si denota la divisione in addetti alla 'grande fatigue' (non pagati e addetti ai lavori peggiori) e alla 'petite fatigue' (retribuiti e addetti a lavori specializzati) da tempo in atto nei bagni francesi. Secondo Massone, la vita ai lavori forzati presso i bagni era preferibile rispetto a quella nel carcere a causa della vista del mare, dell'aria libera, del sole, e della possibilita' di stringere amicizia con i compagni. La prigione, invece, 'uccide il corpo, altera l'intelligenza e pone l'animo in uno stato di tale letargo, che neutralizza la facolta' di agire a seconda del proprio intimo volere'. In realta' i bagni penali furono quanto rimase nel momento in cui le galere vennero a perdere la loro funzione bellica e cominciarono a marcire nei porti. Scomparivano le galere ma rimanevano i galeotti. La pena della galera rimase sempre presente negli ordinamenti e i galeotti vennero quindi destinati ai molti lavori necessari alla gestione di una flotta militare e dei suoi porti. Gran parte della massa dei prigionieri era composta da frotte di poveracci, piu' che da criminali veri e propri, da vagabondi, pitocchi, eretici e contrabbandieri i quali, molte volte senza subire alcun processo, venivano d?ufficio inviati al bagno penale.

        Auswahl merkwürdiger Pilze.

      Wien, Rudolf Sammer, 1851. Folio (39.6 x 26.2 cm). Title page with plate explanations on verso, 16 large, hand-coloured engraved plates. Later marbled wrappers.= Important and very rare work on mushrooms living on trees by the Austrian botanist Leopold Trattinnick (1764-1849), curator of the k.k. Hof-Naturaliencabinete from 1809 to 1835. Several species were named and described by the author, others by Persoon, and Fries. According to Stafleu & Cowan (VI: pp. 436, 441), Trattinnick sold wax models of mushrooms. The publisher, Sammer, took the plates from the estate, hence the posthumous publication. The plates were drawn by Frister, Schmid, Strenzel, and others, and engraved by Leitner. According to Volbracht, who copied a plate (one of the few plates thought important enough to fill a whole page of his Miko Libri!), this work is "Sehr Selten" [very rare]. There is also a plain edition, but this is the rare and finely coloured one, producing some stunning plates. Stafleu & Cowan, 14890; Volbracht, 2122.

Jahrhunderts anfertigte; die Sammlung wird heute in der Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin aufbewahrt. Mosevius, gleichfalls Jurist, hatte lange als Schauspieler und Sänger gewirkt, bevor er mach Zelters Vorbild 1825 in Breslau eine Singakademie gründete. Er wirkte als Gesangslehrer und Universitätsmusikdirektor (1827-32), Leiter des Akademischen Instituts für Kirchenmusik (1831), und Gründer des Musikalischen Cirkels für die Aufführung geistlicher Musik (1834). Das Institut führte sowohl italienische Oratorien als auch solche von Mendelssohn, Carl Loewe und Louis Spohr auf. Ein Jahr nach Mendelssohns Wiederaufführung von Bachs Matthäuspassion in Berlin studierte Mosewius sie in Breslau 1830 mit überwältigendem Erfolg ein. Als Dirigent und Forscher nahm er sich der Popularisierung Bachs an, und Breslau wurde zu einem der wichtigsten Zentren der Bachpflege bis 1945. Durch seine Aktivitäten und Schriften erlangte Mosevius internationale Anerkennung.

        Typed Letter Signed on "McKim, Mead & White" stationery, 4to, New York, March 2, 1900

      Letters of Stanford White are rarely available and ours to noted American artist Thomas Wilmer Dewing is particularly noteworthy. White writes to Thomas Wilmer Dewing (1851-1938), American painter and White's friend, commenting on Dewing's exhibit in March 1900 at the Montross Gallery in New York. White writes that the exhibit, "is perfectly bully. My only regret was that you did not have the big Cheney picture and the panel of your little girl and the two pussy cats which Freer has...." Overall, White thinks Dewing's show is "beautiful." In the next sentence White includes a name in holograph difficult to decipher but possibly Montross, the gallery owner. "I think [holograph name] ought to have a more noticeable sign than he had. I did not know he was on the top floor and went rushing all around trying to find him...." In the final sentence, White refers to "the Detroit matter." As I understand, everything is getting along swimmingly in the Detroit matter." He signs, "Stanford." White refers to the "big Cheney picture" not exhibited in Dewing's show. Dewing had painted a portrait of the sisters Louise and Anne W Cheney of Connecticut entitled, "The Days," for which White had designed the frame and is now in the collection of the Wadsworth Athenaeum Museum of Art. Also mentioned is Detroit businessman Charles Lang Freer (1854-1919), who amassed the most important collection of Whistler in the world. White's mention of "your little girl and the two pussy cats which Freer has" refers to Dewing's painting of his daughter which hung over Freer's living room fireplace. Freer eventually donated his art collection to the Smithsonian which named the Freer Gallery in his honor. The Montross Gallery was named for its owner, Newman Emerson Montross (1849 1932). The gallery, which opened in 1878, represented leading American artists of the time. Stanford White co-founded the architecture and design firm, McKim, Mead & White which designed outstanding New York City landmark buildings including the University Club on Fifth Avenue. Dewing was among White's circle of friends who were prominent artists, and these artists needed frames for their works which White designed. Dewing painted the portrait of White's wife, Bessie, and his sister-in-law, Ella Batavia Emmet. ["The Gilded Age: The Art of the Frame," Wilmer]. Dewing was born in Massachusetts, studied in Paris and settled n New York where he painted female figures, including society women, in a tonalist style influenced by both Whistler and the English Aesthetic Movement. White successfully recommended Dewing for several mural commissions. ["Thomas Wilmer Dewing," Terra foundation for American Art web site]. Dewing was also one of the Ten American Painters - known as "The Ten" - who seceded from the Society of American Artists in 1897 over what they saw as falling standards and increasing commercialism. Montross Gallery exhibited the works of "The Ten." ." Folded, light soiling especially on verso folds, otherwise in fine condition.

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

      Moscow, Société Imperiale des Naturalistes, 1851. 4to. 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.= 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.
