        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.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. O. O., 29. VI. 1851.

      1851. 1¼ SS. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt. 4to. Mit eh. Adresse am letzten Bl. verso (Faltbrief). Siegelreste. An den Chorleiter und Musikdirektor Johann Theodor Mosevius (1788-1858) in Breslau: "Eine Arbeit die ich noch vor meiner Abreise noch Marienbad vollenden möchte, veranlaßt mich, mein verehrter, liber Freund sie um folgendes Buch aus der musikalischen Bibliothek in Breslau zu bitten: 'Cinquante pseaumes de David avec la musique à 3 parties par Orlande de Lassus. Vingt autres pseaumes a 5 & 6 parties etc. Jérome Commelin 1597.' Das Buch führt in der von mir zurückbehaltenen Catalogsabschrift die Nummer XVI und es ist ihm ein Werk 5 und 6 st. Gesänge von Jaches Wert Nürnberg 1583 vorgebunden. Je schleuniger Sie meine Bitte ausfüllen, um so mehr werde ich Ihnen dankbar seyn, und die Rückgabe würde eben so pünktlich erfolgen. Ich schreibe Ihnen in Eil, daher schließe ich hier [...]". - Der Jurist Winterfeld, ein Förderer von Hoffmann von Fallersleben, war Gründungsmitglied der Bach-Gesellschaft und gilt als Wiederentdecker von Heinrich Schütz. 1812 unternahm er eine Reise nach Italien, wo er Kopien von Kompositionen des 16. bis 18. 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.

        Large set of 84 leaves with original full colour drawings of human anatomical (surgical) pathology, and two tinted drawings of medical instruments.

      Paris, 1851-1863. 136 detailed original drawings on 86 mostly thick, stiff boards in portfolio, of which 75 sheets with full colour drawings by Léveillé, as well as two tinted ink and pencil drawings, and nine unsigned or signed by contemporary medical illustrators (including one by Lackerbauer), and two printed chromolithographed plates after Léveillé. Sheet size varying from 13.0 x 14.2 cm to 50.0 x 63.1 cm. The majority with a greatest width well over 25 cm (10"). Preserved in full cloth map with printed paper label (70.0 x 52 x 3.5 cm).= Unique and great set of original medical watercolour drawings, nearly all by Jean-Baptiste Léveillé [sometimes spelled Leveillé]. Léveillé, a pupil of Henri Nicolas Jacob, was one of the greatest anatomy painters of the nineteenth century. He was responsible for 92 folio plates of fine anatomical illustrations in Bourgery and Jacob's "Traité complet de l'anatomie de l'homme" (published between 1832-1854), the "Anatomie élémentaire" by the same authors; and the excellent anatomical-neurological illustrations in Ludovic Hirschfeld's "Névrologie et organes des sens" (first published in 1853), where his contribution was regarded as enough substantive to regard him as co-author. "The Traité de l'Anatomie by Bourgery and Jacob and the Néurologie by Hirschfeld and Léveillé are among the best works in medical iconography. They are considered to rank in importance with other magnificent atlases due to their excellent plates and precise descriptive text. They set an new standard in anatomical illustration and made the artist devoted to anatomy a scientific collaborator of his scientist in anatomy." [R. Hildebrand, in Anat Anz. (1985) 158(4): 363-372]. In total, Léveillé contributed many hundreds of illustrations to at least 14 major anatomical works, and to numerous smaller studies published in, mainly French, medical journals. Among his works is also a suite of 22 plates illustrating human races as part of Dumont d'Urville's "Voyage au Pôle Sud et dans L?Océanie". The present set of plate consists of original, mostly finished, drawings of the human anatomy, mostly anatomical pathology, including ulcerating tumours. The majority of the drawing were made after objects operated upon by "Mr Maisonneuve". This is Jacques Gilles Maisonneuve (1809-1897), a French surgeon and student of Guillaume Dupuytren. Maisonneuve is notable as the first surgeon to explain the role of external rotation in the production of ankle fractures. The eponymously named Maisonneuve fracture describes a specific fibular fracture (Wikipedia). Apparently Maisonneuve also had a keen interest in cancers, in particular of the oral cavity and jaw, and in the reproductive organs. Several plate captions were written by Maisonneuve, one is signed by him. Other organs are less well-represented in Léveillé's drawings, but we see detailed illustrations of tumours in the neck, the bladder, the eye, and in several other organs. A few drawings were made by other artists. One is signed "P. Lackerbauer ad nat. pinx[i]t 1852". Pierre Lackerbauer was an accomplished artist and lithographer in his own right. For instance, he illustrated the "Atlas d'anatomie pathologique co-authored with Lancereaux, published in 1871; and a finely illustrated work with superb algae drawings, "Le monde de la mer" (1866). One set of two drawings of an eyelid operation is clearly more simple; they are signed, in pencil, R. [or L.?] Desterne. These drawings, although adequate and scientifically correct, form a strong contrast with Léveillé's work which is meticulous in its rendering of fine details, colouring, structure, and texture; it may be said that in clarity and vigour it even surpasses everything that can be achieved with photography. Nearly all the plates are in a very good condition. Only few boards are slightly to moderately toned; there is little or no foxing. In all a very good set of these fine and rare drawings. A full list of illustration details (subjects, date, sizes, caption texts -including patient's data and case histories-, state, and various other remarks) is available upon request.

        König Nußknacker und der arme Reinhold. Ein Kindermährchen in Bildern

      Frankfurt am Main, Literarische Anstalt (Rütten & Löning), o.J. (um 1851). - Heinrich Hoffmann, in erster Linie bekannt durch den "Struwwelpeter" ließ die Spielzeugfiguren, die er (wahrscheinlich für seine Kinder) während einer Reise in Nürnberg gekauft hatte, in märchenhafter Weise lebendig werden. Der Titelheld Reinhold liegt krank im Bett und im Traum erscheint ihm der Nußknackerkönig, der ihm seinen Hofstaat vorstellt, welche aus Seiffener Spielzeugfiguren und den Struwwelpeterkindern besteht. Am Weihnachtsmorgen erwacht Reinhold zur Überraschung seiner Mutter gesund. In der Stube unter dem geschmückten Weihnachtsbaum stehen König Nußknacker und alle Spielzeuge, die der König Reinhold im Traum vorgestellt hat. Durch diese Geschichte wurde auch erstmals ein Bezug zwischen dem Nußknacker und der Weihnachtszeit hergestellt. Im Ganzen trotz einiger Nutzungs- und Alterungsspuren gut erhalten, wohl früher (zweiter?) Druck der ersten Ausgabe, das Titelblatt nun in die Seitenzählung eingeschlossen. Wegen durchaus respektloser Zeilen wie z.B. „Die Mützen flogen weit empor und jubelnd sang der ganze Chor: Heil dir, du Knupperhans, hölzern in Pracht und Glanz, heil, Knacker dir. Und als das Lied zuende war, da rief die ganze Kinderschar: es lebe hoch, es lebe froh, der König Nußknackerio" brachte das Buch seinem Verlag bei der Zensurbehörde erst einmal eine Verbotsverfügung wegen Majestätsbeleidigung ein Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 296 25 x 19,5cm, mod. Halbleinen, koloriertes Titelbl. an den Rändern hinterlegt, 32 Bl. mit handkolorierten Holzschnitten (Titelbl. in die Paginierung einbezogen) [Attributes: Hard Cover]
