        A New Universal Atlas Containing Maps of the various Empires, Kingdoms, States and Republics of the World. With a special map of each of the United States, Plans of Cities &c

      Thomas, Cowperthwait & Co, Philadelphia 1852 - Publisher's green marbled paper-covered boards with morocco title label elaborately tooled and lettered in gilt on upper cover, red morocco spine and corners expertly renewed to style. Modern red cloth box, morocco lettering piece A fine copy of this famous atlas, with hand-coloured maps of all the individual States and Territories. The map of California shows counties in California and New Mexico for the first time. Despite its title, the Atlas concentrates to a marked degree on the American continent with 43 maps of the area, including a fine double-page east-to-west-coast map of the United States. S. Augustus Mitchell and his sons were the leading publishers of maps in the United States during most of the nineteenth century. Mitchell had come to Philadelphia around 1830 with the intention of improving the standard of geography textbooks, Philadelphia then being the leading city in America for cartographical publications. A New American Atlas , published in 1831, was his first work. In 1845 he acquired the rights to Tanner's New Universal Atlas (first published in 1836), and in 1846 he published his first edition of the present work. Mitchell continued to publish the atlas until 1850, when he sold the copyright to Cowperthwait & Co. of Philadelphia. Thomas, Cowperthwait & Company published it until the mid-1850s, when it was purchased by Charles De Silver. The Cowperthwait company continued to add, edit, alter and hand-colour the maps. Phillips Atlases 807; cf. Ristow pp. 311-313; Rumsey p.239. Folio. (17 x 13 3/4 inches). Chromolithographic title with large vignette, hand-coloured frontispiece of the heights of the principal mountains and lengths of the principal rivers, contents list printed in red, black and gold, 73 hand-coloured lithographed maps, charts and city plans (1 double-page).

        A Journey to the Tea Countries of China ; including Sung-Lo and the Bohea Hills; with a Short Notice of the East India Company's Tea Plantations in the Himalaya Mountains

      London: John Murray, 1852. Octavo, with two tinted lithographs (one frontispiece) and a third plate, engraved title-page, map, textual illustrations; a very good copy in the original decorative green cloth, bookplate. Chinese Tea-Growers: a fine copy. First edition, and scarce in the original cloth: a very attractive copy of this marvellous account of the botanist Robert Fortune's trip to China in 1847. Robert Fortune (1813-1880) was first sent to China in 1842 to collect botanical specimens for the Royal Horticultural Society's garden at Chiswick. On that trip he spent four years abroad, experiencing pirate attack, shipwreck and entering the city of Loo-chow, then closed to Europeans, in Chinese disguise. He was responsible for the introduction to England of the kumquat, the double yellow rose, many varieties of tree peonies, azaleas and chrysanthemums. Buoyed by his success he visited China again in 1847 to collect tea plants on behalf of the East-India Company, successfully introducing tea to the Himalayas. In this volume, he gives an account of this second journey to China: "my object is to give a peep into the Celestial Empire, to show its strange hills and romantic valleys… and its strange and interesting people

In turn, Coahuila became a member of the short lived Republic of the Rio Grande in 1840. On February 19, 1856, Santiago Vidaurri annexed Coahuila to his state, Nuevo Leon, but it regained its separate status in 1868. Constitucion Politica Reformada was a proposed reform Constitution from 1852 that was never enacted.

        Géographie du moyen Age, étudiée par Joachim Lewelel

      Bruxelles: Pilliet, 1852-1854-, 1857. Four parts text bound in one volume, with epilogue and atlas volumes, the latter oblong folio; 18 plates (some folding) in the text volumes, 50 plates (see note) in the atlas volume, excellent impressions of all the plates; the three volumes differently bound: recent quarter morocco with green boards (text); early crimson pebbled cloth, a little frayed at spine (epilogue); modern half green morocco over marbled boards (atlas). Rare complete set with the full complement of maps. First edition, with the full suite of lithographic plates, depicting any number of famous and important early maps, by a 'pioneer writer on cartography' (Tooley). This is one of the most important - and eccentric - early studies of the geography of the Middle Ages and early Renaissance, and is only rarely seen complete with its folio atlas and the particularly uncommon epilogue volume of 1857. Lelewel's comprehensive intensive study of classical Greek, Latin and Arab sources, with each of the intricately engraved plates prepared by the author himself, includes the accounts of navigators, pilots and voyagers, and his scholarship makes it a significant source for cartography and the history of travel. The work is wide in scope, and whether Lelewel is discussing the foundations of modern Ptolemaic geography, the peregrinations of the Jewish scholar Benjamin of Tudele, or the great fourteenth-century Arab expeditions of Ibn Battuta, his synthesis of the field is magisterial. Lelewel was a Polish historian, educated at the Imperial University of Vilna. Although of Prussian descent, he became an ardent nationalist and his lectures on Polish history galvanised the country. One of the rebels of the November Uprising against the Russian authorities in 1830, he went into exile in Paris soon after the rebellion was suppressed, and was soon after forced to leave France for Brussels at the explicit request of the Russian Ambassador. A friend of Marx and Engels, he was a political agitator throughout his life. The plate count is complex, but the present example has the full complement. The folio atlas has 50 plates, as required: 49 are full page lithographs, while the remaining map (plate 47) is tipped on to the title-page, as instructed in the plate listing (this has caused some confusion among bibliographers; Howes, for example, lists "49" plates only). The question of the smaller plates for the text volumes has also been confused: Graesse calls for 12 plates, but the listing does not include the epilogue volume; Leclerc, who does notice the epilogue, calls for only 14 plates in total; Sabin does not list the smaller plates; and lastly, Howes lists 18 plates. This example with 18 & 50 plates, then, corresponds to the largest number of plates recorded by any of the bibliographers.

        A Series of Lithographic Drawings , from Sketches in New Zealand

      London: Dickinson Brothers, circa, 1852. Large folio, 4 pp. (title and text) and nine images on eight coloured lithograph plates; original printed wrapper with red cloth backstrip, preserved in a solander case. The rare coloured issue, with original wrappers. One of the finest Pacific illustrated books of the nineteenth century. This is a beautiful copy of the rare coloured issue, complete in the original illustrated wrappers. The superb handcoloured lithographs are by the naval commander Richard Aldworth Oliver. Oliver (1811-1889) commanded the HMS Fly on survey voyages of New Zealand and Pacific waters between 1847 and 1851, including acting as escort to Selwyn's schooner Undine to New Caledonia and the New Hebrides in 1849. It was during these voyages that he observed the Maori people first-hand and recorded the New Zealand and New Caledonian landscape for this publication. His personal observations of New Zealand during 1848-9 are also recorded in a manuscript journal, in the collection of the National Maritime Museum, London. The suite of views and portraits prepared by Oliver for the publication include "Chief Te Rangihaeta", "A Korero", "A Tangi (at Motoneka)", "The Falls of Kirikiri", "A Stranger's House (Houraki Pah)", "Half Castes of Pomare's Pah (Bay of Islands)", "Puebo (New Caledonia)" and portraits of two boys Harry Bluff and Johnny, who were 'half-castes, probably the children of whalers'. There were two issues of the work: a tinted issue and this rarer handcoloured version, which was issued at the substantial price of two guineas. Evidently the high price kept sales low, as an inserted slip (present in this copy) states: 'In consequence of the Subscription list for Capt. Oliver's work on New Zealand being not yet sufficiently filled with names, it is considered expedient to postpone bringing out more Parts of the work, until the number of names should be increased'. This was Oliver's only printed work, although a large number of his watercolour views and portraits survive in New Zealand institutional collections. Hocken and Bagnall date the book 1852, as does Abbey, while the BMC dates it 1853.

        21 Offprints on physics, acoustics, microscopy, etc., from the Carl Ludwig collection

      1852-1893. <p>Helmholtz, Hermann (1821-94). Collection of 21 offprints, as listed below. Various sizes (the largest measuring 303 x 212 mm.). V.p., 1852-93. Most in original printed wrappers; see below for more detailed condition statements. Some browning, chipping and tears due to poor quality paper. Nearly all the offprints bear the stamp of the Ludwig collection, formed by physiologist Carl Friedrich Wilhelm Ludwig (1816-95; G-M 682, 770, 809-10, 819, 998, 1232); two of the offprints bear Helmholtz&#39;s presentation inscriptions to Ludwig. The offprints also bear the stamp of Lewis Hill Weed (1886-1952; G-M 1439).</p><p> First Separate Editions. Helmholtz was "the last scholar whose work, in the tradition of Leibniz, embraced all the sciences, as well as philosophy and the fine arts" (DSB). During his long career Helmholtz made fundamental contributions to physiological optics and acoustics, hydrodynamics, electrodynamics, thermodynamics and the philosophy of science. The present collection contains his important first paper on color theory (no. 1), as well as a few papers on acoustics (nos. 4, 11), and several papers on electrodynamics (nos. 5, 9, 10, 12-14, 19-21). </p><p>Helmholtz entered the field of color theory in 1852 with his "Ueber Hrn. D. Brewster&#39;s neue Analyse des Sonnenlichts," a refutation of David Brewster&#39;s triple-spectrum theory of light proposed in 1831. Brewster&#39;s theory, which claimed that sunlight consisted of three primary colors (red, blue and yellow) plus white, had found wide acceptance upon its publication, but came under increasing criticism over the next two decades. Helmholtz&#39;s paper, which carefully re-examined Brewster&#39;s experimental evidence, put an end to the triple-spectrum concept-Helmholtz was able to reproduce Brewster&#39;s experimental results, but demonstrated conclusively that they were due to scattered white light (in both the experimental apparatus and the eye) and to physiological optical influences.<p> Helmholtz&#39;s work in electrodynamics, the main focus of his research after 1870, led to his rejection of the notion of action at a distance (advocated by Ampere, Neumann, Weber and others), and to his acceptance of James Clerk Maxwell&#39;s field theory in advance of most other Continental physicists.</p><p> "During the last third of the nineteenth century Hermann von Helmholtz led an entire generation of German-speaking physicists to recognize the fecundity and challenge of James Clerk Maxwell&#39;s new electrodynamics. . . . [He] played an instrumental role in the formation of classical electrodynamics: through his critical analysis of the work of others, through creative variations on existing theories, and through his inspiring guidance of his students, he became a major figure in shaping classical, Maxwellian electrodynamics as it emerged during the last third of the nineteenth century" (Kaiser, "Helmholtz&#39;s role in the formation of classical electrodynamics," in Cahan, ed., Hermann von Helmholtz and the Foundations of Nineteenth Century Science, pp. 374-402; quotation taken from pp. 374-75).</p><p>These offprints come from the library of Helmholtz&#39;s friend, the physiologist Carl Ludwig, whose invention of the kymograph in 1847 (G-M 770) influenced the course of Helmholtz&#39;s early physiological investigations of muscle contraction, and whose Lehrbuch der Physiologie des Menschen (1852) helped pave the way for Helmholtz&#39;s work on the problem of eye movements. The offprints were later acquired by Lewis Hill Weed, who mapped out the pathways of the circulation of the cerebrospinal fluid.</p><p> 1. Ueber Hrn. D. Brewster&#39;s neue Analyse des Sonnenlichts.

        Notes of a Gold Digger, and Gold Digger&#39;s Guide

      Melbourne: R. Connebee, 1852. Duodecimo, 42 pp., with a hand-coloured map and wood engraving by Calvert; inner margins neatly perforated from previous sewn binding, yet a very good copy in recent navy cloth with original titling wrappers bound in. The first Victorian goldfields handbook. Very rare: the first edition of the first Victorian publication on the goldfields, illustrated by a hand-coloured map of "Routes to the Victoria Diggings" and a frontispiece, entitled "Diggers", both engraved by Samuel Calvert. Notes of a Gold Digger provides rich descriptions of daily life at Bendigo during the exciting early days of the Victorian gold rush. James Bonwick was a writer, educator, and prolific publisher who left Melbourne for the goldfields in February 1852. Bonwick found easy wealth elusive and returned to Melbourne shortly afterwards, publishing this book as a record of his experiences and a guide to others then flocking to the diggings in droves. Like many after him, Bonwick found that writing about the goldfields offered greater reward than prospecting itself. This book is the first of many written by returned prospectors. Significantly, it is more of a social description of the goldfields than a mining guide, and as such provides an invaluable firsthand description of day-to-day life during the early heady days of the Victorian gold rush. Among many subjects, Notes of a Gold Digger&hellip; includes a short entry on health and hygiene on the goldfields that discusses mortality rates, childbirth without doctors or midwives, the prevention of dysentery and the importance of a balanced diet. Six pages are devoted to the &#39;Moral State of the Diggings&#39; reflecting Bonwick&#39;s personal values and firm advocacy of temperance. However, he is neither sanctimonious nor unkind in his appraisal, concluding &#39;what is commonly called open crime does not exist there to a greater extent than in towns&hellip;Life and property I believe to be as safe as in town, if not safer.&#39; Bonwick&#39;s guide is a famous rarity, with only a couple of copies recorded for sale in the last decades (the most recent in the Davidson sale of 2007).

        &#39;Myrtaceae xerocarpicae, in Nova Hollandia&#39; [in] Melanges Biologiques... de St. Petersbourg

      St. Petersbourg: de l&#39;Imprimerie de l&#39;Academie Imperiale des Sciences, 1852. Octavo, four folding plates; in original printed wrappers, rubbed with some loss, splitting at spine. An attractive if worn copy of this important nineteenth-century scientific journal, with a long and significant article regarding the eucalypts of New Holland. The 77 species described here were purchased from James Drummond, who had emigrated to the Swan River colony in 1829 and who supplemented his income by selling specimens - as here - to overseas collectors. The article is written by Nicholai Turczaninov (1796-1863). A good note on the Council of Heads of Australasian Herbaria (online) provides a useful insight into this taxonomy: &#39;Turczaninov held a number of Government posts, particularly in Siberia. In later years at least some of his duties included scientific studies and botany, and he pursued these studies in retirement. He amassed a very large personal herbarium, including purchased material from James Drummond (3rd collection), Preiss and Brown, and exchanged material with Hooker, Bentham and Steetz. Between 1846 and 1863 he published widely on Australian taxa (inter alia), based on the collections in his herbarium. He described 43 Australian genera and over 400 species, most from the collections of Drummond, but never visited Australia.&#39; This fascicle of the Mélanges Biologiques, the 4th livraison of the first volume, was published in 1852. Turczaninov&#39;s article appears on pp. 394-428.

        The Recent Operations of the British Forces at Rangoon and Martaban

      London.: Thomas Hatchard., 1852.. Sepia toned lithograph frontispiece, b/w plate and two folding plates. vii, 78 pp. Eyewitness account of the second Anglo Burmese war, by the chaplain of "HMS Fox", one of the major ships involved in this textbook incident of gunboat diplomacy. The &#147;war&#148; was a result of trumped up charges and facts suppressed by Parliament, and it was waged by the Royal Navy. Baker, though he presents accurate and graphic accounts of the blockade and subsequent actions, is essentially an apologist for Britain&#146;s imperialist policies. Folding plates depict the port of Rangoon and &#147;The Attack at the Dunnoo Stockade.&#148; The last chapter narrates the capture of Martaban and Rangoon. It was added after Baker died in a cholera epidemic. See Abbey, &#147;Travel&#148; 407. Bound in original cloth. Cover spotted, text clean.

He described 43 Australian genera and over 400 species, most from the collections of Drummond, but never visited Australia.' This fascicle of the Mélanges Biologiques, the 4th livraison of the first volume, was published in 1852. Turczaninov's article appears on pp. 394-428. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        HMS "Mæander" 44 guns, in a heavy squall [and] Shortening sail for anchoring?

      Ackermann, London 1852 - Pair of colour lithographs, 375 x 535 mm.; framed. A fine pair of portraits of a splendid ship: these colour lithographs after original watercolours by Oswald Brierly were made by T.G. Dutton and printed by Day and Son for Ackermanns. The first print shows the Mæander in the Pacific, shortening sail in heavy weather; the caption dates the events to 9 July 1850; in the second the ship is coming slowly to anchor in Rio de Janeiro, and the scene is dated 9 June 1851. Both prints are dedicated to Henry Keppel, and the ship's officers. Oswald Brierly (1817-1894) was a leading marine painter, and he had also studied naval architecture. He sailed on numerous expeditions including the Rattlesnake voyage surveying the Barrier Reef, with Benjamin Boyd on the Wanderer, and on the Galatea with the Duke of Edinburgh in 1867. Brierly joined Henry Keppel on H.M.S. Mæander after his voyage on the Rattlesnake and visited New Zealand, Tahiti and South America, returning to England in July 1851. A description of the voyage is given in Admiral Keppel's A Sailor's Life Under Four Sovereigns (London, 1899).

        ALS concerning sale of fruit and wine from Cape Town to Hovil & Sons in London

      19 June, Sydney 1852 - Bifolium ALS, 280 x 220 mm., address panel with stamps and postal marks, crimson wax seal largely intact, old folds; very good. Buying wines and fruit from Cape Town. Unusual autograph letter, recording the sale of "wines and fruit" brought in from Cape Town on the Cremona in 1852. As the writer notes to their colleagues in London, R. Hovil & Sons, they are able to send net proceeds of almost 500 pounds sterling, an impressive figure. Levick & Piper were an important Sydney retailer, initially on George Street, but later at Pitt Street opposite the old Union Bank, selling everything from mouse-traps to iron-mongery. The company also did a roaring trade in food and wine, importing from all around the world (and developing a relationship with Cape Town in the process). There is presumably a connection with the 1830s firm of Levick & Younger (of George Street), but the Levick & Piper association dates from January 1849, when James and Joseph Levick went into partnership with Frederick Piper. The firm continued with a flourishing trade and in 1856 expanded to Melbourne, opening an importing warehouse on Flinders Lane. The Sydney business seems to have been wound up in 1857.

In the duet Ich bin dein Baum (&#39;I am your tree&#39;) the alto and bass voices are given independent flowing lines, which are characterized by dramatic seventh and octave leaps. Chromatic harmonies are features of two of the solo songs - Liebster, dein Worte stehlen for soprano and O Freund... for alto. The latter song is especially fine, with accented passing notes used in the accompaniment in a wholly individual manner." Walker, ed.: Robert Schumann, p. 368.

A scarce early edition of Adrian; or the Clouds of the Mind A Romance by George Payne Rainsfordand Maunsell B. Field with a decorative colour half title. First edition.

After reading Richilieu, which had been given to him by a friend, and after receiving a letter from James, Walter Scott advised him to take up literature as a profession. He was also given encouragement by Washington Irving. Previous owner&#39;s ink inscription dated 1922 to front pastedown. Condition: In original cloth binding. Externally, sound but with some wear to extremities, slight rubbing and marks to boards with slight splitting to cloth to head and tail of joints. Internally, firmly bound.

The Duke of Wellington, F.M. Prince Blücher, the Emperor Napoleon, etc., etc. Octavo Original blue cloth, elaborately blind- and gilt-stamped, large trophy of arms and standards to front board enclosing a roundel with capital "W" encircled by a laurel wreath. Lithographic double portrait frontispiece, medallic vignette to the title page, double-page facsimile note, large folding two-part panorama of the battlefield, 33 etched plates and one folding lithographic plate, 8 hand-coloured maps on 4 folding sheets, the large coloured "Historical" map bound in at the front. Somewhat rubbed, and a little stained, some skilful restoration at spine, pale cream surface-paper endpapers renewed, light toning, some foxing and off-setting as usual, a very good copy, partially unopened. First published in 1817, this the eleventh edition, enlarged and corrected. "The fully expanded version of &#39;The Battle of Waterloo&#39; published by Booth and often listed under his name. The earlier editions were simply a vehicle for carrying the official accounts of the battle. To these were added as the years went by &#39;an account &#133; by a near observer&#39;, &#39;other circumstantial details&#39;, &#39;biographical notes&#39;, and finally a suite of plates by George Jones" (Sandler). Sandler&#39;s copy lacked two plates; the large and highly attractive map of the field is often lacking. A nicely restored copy, remaining appealing in the original cloth.

        BLEAK HOUSE

      , 1852. 1852. [20-in-19 serial parts] With Illustrations by H. K. Browne. [Complete in the 20-in-19 monthly serial parts.] London: Bradbury and Evans, 1852-1853. Original light blue-green pictorial wrappers. First Edition, in the original 20-in-19 monthly serial parts that were issued from March 1852 through September 1853 (at the end of which time the novel was published in book form). Written just after DAVID COPPERFIELD and just before HARD TIMES, this is Dickens&#39;s famous attack on Chancery, the London legal system -- featuring such characters as the lawyer Tulkinghorn, the claimants Lord and Lady Dedlock, and of course the whole law firm of Jarndyce & Jarndyce. Though lives come to an end all around it, the case goes on and on, finally concluding when (surprise!) all of the fortune has been devoured by legal fees. Included are forty plates by "Phiz," of which ten are "dark plates" made possible by a new procedure.~In this set, the vast majority of the plethora of advertising material is present: Parts II and X lack a "Bleak House Advertiser" and most rear ads, but little else is lacking from what would be a "perfectly complete" set -- five other parts lack a total of seven ads and two "Household Words" slips, but parts III, IV, V, VI, VII, IX, XII, XIII, XV (including the scarce "Village Pastor"), XVII, XVIII and XIX-XX are totally complete. ~As for condition, this set is just about the nicest we have ever offered -- with very little external wear and only minor soil (Part V lacks about an inch of spine wrapper, and there&#39;s a small original-bookseller&#39;s sticker at the foot of one front wrapper, but that&#39;s it) -- and there is no restoration or "improvement" or "sophistication" of the parts. A few of the plates (all present) do exhibit a little foxing or browning in their margins, but that is almost unavoidable; all of the rear wrappers are "correct." In all, quite a collectible set of BLEAK HOUSE, housed in a cloth clamshell case. Hatton & Cleaver pp 273-304; Smith I pp 79-84.

        Autographed Letter Signed

      Utica 1852 - Irish born American financier, entrepreneur, and land-owner who purchased 417,970 acres of land in upstate New York, including present day Allegheny County. A staunch Roman Catholic, Devereux traveled to Rome in 1854 and persuaded the Franciscans to come to Western New York and start a mission. He would provide the land and money. The Franciscans agreed and St. Bonaventure University was officially established in 1858. Devereux and Hubbard were friends and business partners who got along well despite their differences in religious beliefs. However, letters in the collection of the New York Historical Society reveal that Devereux sometimes felt that Hubbard failed to act accordingly when the later perceived that religious bias was used in various business transactions. 2 pages (front and back), 8 x 5 inches, Utica, September 17, 1852. Written at the height of his philanthropic activities promoting Catholicism to Thomas Hill Hubbard, an American lawyer, judge, and Congressman who was also a founder of Hamilton College and Hamilton Academy in Clinton, New York. In this letter, Devereux is voicing his displeasure with certain business practices, in small part: "I intend going West sometime next week.the later part, and be absent some weeks. Msrs. Dudley are not as frank as their friends represent them. They now rent the house for us to have a large balance against. My friends here care to either act as agents to Mr. McKenny and be subject to all the difficulties they had to contend with.but if the business of the company is managed in other places - I have no desire to continue as a stockholder - however small."

        The Recent Operations of the British Forces at Rangoon and Martaban

      London.: Thomas Hatchard., 1852.. Sepia toned lithograph frontispiece, b/w plate and two folding plates. vii, 78 pp. Eyewitness account of the second Anglo Burmese war, by the chaplain of "HMS Fox", one of the major ships involved in this textbook incident of gunboat diplomacy. The &#147;war&#148; was a result of trumped up charges and facts suppressed by Parliament, and it was waged by the Royal Navy. Baker, though he presents accurate and graphic accounts of the blockade and subsequent actions, is essentially an apologist for Britain&#146;s imperialist policies. Folding plates depict the port of Rangoon and &#147;The Attack at the Dunnoo Stockade.&#148; The last chapter narrates the capture of Martaban and Rangoon. It was added after Baker died in a cholera epidemic. See Abbey, &#147;Travel&#148; 407. Bound in original cloth. Cover spotted, text clean.

        Blick auf die Ruine Falkenstein bei Königstein im Taunus, 1852

      1852. Aquarell auf Papier, unten rechts datiert: "16/7/52", 19,6 x 13,8 cm. Mit fünfzehn Jahren begann Georg Theodor Huth am Städelschen Kunstinstitut zu studieren und orientierte sich im Anschluss ab 1842 an dem seit einigen Jahren in Frankfurt weilenden Heinrich Funck. Allerdings scheint er sich schon früh der immer prominenter auftretenden Fotografie zugewandt zu haben, denn die Zahl seiner Gemälde und Aquarelle, die heute noch nachweisbar sind, ist sehr gering. Umso spannender ist es, Huths großes Können im Bereich der Malerei hier studieren zu dürfen. Mit einer gekonnten Mischung aus Detailverliebtheit und hingetupft atmosphärischen Verallgemeinerungen gelingt ihm gekonnt der Wechsel der verschiedenen Perspektiven. Der Fokus liegt ganz auf der im Fluchtpunkt des Bildes erscheinenden Ruine der Burg Falkenstein bei Königstein im Taunus. Im Vordergrund und an den Seiten setzt Huth bewusst auf gröbere Pinselstriche und mit dem Wissen um seine spätere fotografische Tätigkeit ist man versucht, auch hier schon das Auge des Fotografen zu vermuten, der gekonnt mit Unschärfe und Fokussierung umgeht. Darüber hinaus erreichte Huth durch die Mischung der Aquarellfarben mit Gummi Arabicum eine glänzende Frische, die ihn auch bei der Fotografie gereizt haben wird. Die hohe Qualität, mit der Theodor Huth seine Umgebung im Aquarell festzuhalten vermochte, rückt ihn in enge Nachbarschaft zu Karl Theodor Reiffenstein, dem anderen großen Chronisten der hessischen Städte und Landschaften. Mit diesem war er auch über das fotografische Medium verbunden: 1877 erschien im Verlag Th. Völcker in Frankfurt "Dichtung und Wahrheit" von Johann Wolfgang von Goethe mit 10 Fotografien nach Aquarellen von Reiffenstein.
