      Hartford: Silas Andrus & Son. 1853 - Second American edition, including a new preface and the preface from the 1820 edition. This copy belonged to the Stowe family, and is quite likely the precise copy referenced in Harriet Beecher Stowe's 'Poganuc People': "It was a happy hour when [father] brought home and set up in his book-case Cotton Mather's "Magnalia," in a new edition of two volumes." (quoted in Baker, America's Gothic Fiction: The Legacy of Magnalia Christi America, p. 5). Harriet is noted as among the authors influenced by this title (Hall's Dictionary of National Biography). Given the importance of the work, and it's influence on Harriet, it seems quite likely that it was passed down from her father Lyman to her family. Her husband Calvin's ownership stamp ('Rev. C.E. Stowe, Hartford, Conn.') - appears on the title page of each. Signatures of Charles E. Stowe ('Chas. E Stowe') and Lyman Beecher Stowe on the front endpaper of each volume, indicating that it was also passed down from her to Charles (her son), and then to Lyman (her grandson). Rebound. Despite the reference in the title, this edition does not appear to have been issued with a map. Minor pencil marginalia with a few sentences underlined, ostensibly by one of the Stowes, and with a brief note on p. 70 that appears to be in Calvin's hand (based on comparison with one of his letters in the Beecher-Stowe family papers held by Harvard University's Schlesinger Library). Edges rubbed, binder's plate on rear endpaper of each volume, small internal tear to cloth of vol. 2 rear board along fore-edge, Engraving of Oliver Cromwell mounted opposite title of vol. 2 (seems to have been taken from another work), engraving of Macaulay mounted on front flyleaf of vol. 2. 1853 Half-Leather. Complete in two volumes. 626; 682 pp. 8vo. Brown leather spine & corners, grey cloth boards, gilt titles & rules, red page ridges, blue endpapers. Frontispiece of author in volume 1.

Original full beige morocco portfolio, elaborately lettered and decorated in gilt and blind, extremities a little rubbed and lacking ties; contents fine . A superb portfolio of 42 color plates, exquisitely printed by this publisher famous for their work, depicting the glittering world of the pre-revolutionary French aristocracy through the day's activities of "a woman of quality". The work consists of five separate paper portfolios, or "chapters", each with a pictorial title, frontispiece, and six pages of framed short texts surrounded by lavish watercolor vignettes. This monumental production is the work of one of France's most honored watercolorists and painters, Maurice Leloir [1853-1940] who gained an early reputation for the brilliance of his work, and who made important contributions to the history of costume design. In this book, Leloir's matchless watercolors have been color-printed with such astonishing fidelity that only the closest examination distinguishes them from hand-colored prints. A significant work of enormous elegance and charm

Album complet de ses 15 planches publiées, ce qui est rarissime, plus 2 autres photographies. Cet album a été réalisé d?après le procédé mis au point par J.J. Heilmann et John Stewart permettant d?obtenir des épreuves de toutes dimensions à partir du même négatif. « Cet « Album photographique » était un véritable recueil relié, de format in-quarto, visiblement destiné à concurrencer les albums de lithographies tant prisés par les voyageurs de l?époque. Il présentait en quinze épreuves, non signées pour la plupart, les principaux sites de Pau et des alentours. . Certaines vues étaient des montages assez curieux de personnages photographiés, entourés d?un décor champêtre dessiné par le peintre Victor Venat, ami de Heilmann, qui devait plus tard se reconvertir dans la photographie : c?est notamment le cas de la planche de titre et d?une autre, intitulée "Paysans des environs de Pau", [ "Costumes des environs de Pau", dans cet album.] . Ce recueil comportait à l?origine quinze planches : aucun exemplaire complet n?existe à ce jour dans les collections publiques française." (Pyrénées en images). Les épreuves sont sur papier salé à partir d?un négatif papier. Aux 15 vues de l?album "Pau et ses environs" ont été reliées dans l?album une photo, d?une autre série (chevaux et personnage), non signée, et une autre épreuve (Château de Pau et les Pyrénées) de plus grand format, attribuée à Heilmann. L?album est ainsi constitué : Titre - Vue de Pau prise du Parc. - Costumes des environs de Pau. [signée J.J. Heilmann] - Chaumière des environs de Pau. - Cathédrale de Lescar (Béarn). - [Une épreuve sans titre, calèche, chevaux et personnages en chapeaux haut-de-forme.] - Abside de la cathédrale de Lescar. - Vue de Pau [avec une lavandière au bord du Gave au premier plan]. - Le château de Coarraze (Béarn). - Chapelle de Bétharam (Béarn). - Pic du Midi de Pau. - Le pont de Lescun (Vallée d?Aspe). - Le Parc de Pau. - Château de Pau (Intérieur). - Sauveterre (Béarn). - La vallée d?Aspe (Béarn). - [Château de Pau et les Pyrénées enneigées au fond].

        (Flußlandschaft),

      1853.. . Von einem Ufervorsprung blick der Maler über den linker Hand vorbeiziehenden Fluß und einen tiefen Horizont. Das rechte Ufer ist stark bewachsen, am linken wechseln sich Bäume und Wiesen ab. Auf einem Uferweg begeben sich zwei Personen in Richtung einer Hütte. Über den Baumwipfeln scheint die Sonne unterzugehen Bleistiftzeichnung von August Christian Geist, sign. u. dat. 1853, num. "No 35.". 24,5 x 32,0 cm. - Minimal gebräunt, glatt; mit einer alten Faltspur. - Sehr qualtitätvolle Entwurfszeichnung. Geists zeichnerische Fähigkeiten zeigen sich in diesem Blatt vor allem in der Behandlung von Bäumen und Büschen, die konturenreich und lebendig erfasst sind. Der Natur wird vom Künstler nicht nur dadurch absoluten Vorrang in diesem Bild eingeräumt. Der Mensch erscheint ihr gegenüber winzig und lediglich am Rand des Motives. - August Christian Geist: Würzburg 12.10.1835 - 15.12.1868 München. Geist, dessen Vater Andreas in Würzburg Theatermaler war, besuchte in Würzburg die polytechnische Schule und lernte nach seiner Übersiedelung nach München bei Fritz Bamberger. In den 1850er Jahren entstanden zahlreiche Motive aus dem Alpenvorland, der Rhön und der fränkischen Schweiz. In Karlsruhe lies er sich von Schirmer beeinflussen. Im Herbst 1865 tritt er endlich seine lang geplante Italienreise an. Sein seit Jahren schlechter Gesundheitszustand macht ihm zu schaffen. Im Frühjahr 1867 kehrt er nach München zurück. Dort wird er erneut in seinem Schaffensdrang gebremst und er muss zur Schonung ruhen. Mit 34 Jahren verstarb er viel zu früh. Dikreiter sah ihn sonst bei "voller Ausreifung der ihm verliehenen Gaben ... in die erste Reihe der deutschen Landschafter des 19. Jahrhunderts" aufrücken. - Literatur: Härth, Isolde: August Christian Geist - ein fränkischer Landschaftsmaler, Würzburg 1958.
