        Schriftsteller und Stimmführer der Jungdeutschen Bewegung (1811-1878): Eigenh. Brief m. U. Dresden, 8. VIII. 1858. Gr.-8°. 2 ¼ S.,

      - An eine "Verehrte Frau" über seinen neuen Roman "Der Zauberer von Rom ", dessen erster Band erschienen sei, und eine Übersetzung ins Englische: ". F r e y t a g s Roman ["Soll und Haben", 1855] macht sein Glück durch die Verherrlichung des Ladenschwengelthums und der kleinen Dütchendreher. Diese Menschen sind Legion, führen jetzt im Zeitalter der materiellen Interessen das Wort und der Commis erkennt sich überall wieder. Mein Buch hängt mit den subtilsten Empfindungen des deutschen Gemüthes zusammen, hat glaub` ich zu wenig grobe Effekte u. ist mit einem Worte den Ausländern ganz unzugänglich . Verzeihen Sie mir auch, daß ich vergaß, Ihnen ein Exemplar meiner Ritter ["Die Ritter vom Geiste", 1850ff.] zu schicken. Einmal kam eine Reise nach Italien u. Rom dazwischen und sodann ist mir die Adresse (R i e s s e r) nicht sehr angenehm. Wir mögen uns gegenseitig beide nicht. Schon vor der Paulskirche geriethen wir in Streit u. Riessers ganze Richtung ist mir antipathisch, wie ihm die meinige ." - // - 1852 begann mit einem Verriss von Gutzkows Roman "Wally, die Zweiflerin" (der nach dem Verbot von 1835 unter dem Titel "Vergangene Tage" neu erschien) in der von Julian Schmidt und Gustav Freytag redigierten Zeitschrift "Die Grenzboten", der öffentlich über die damaligen Medien ausgetragene "Grenzbotenstreit". - Ab da wurde alles, was Gutzkow schrieb, im Grenzboten verrissen. - Die Kritik an Gustav Freytags Kaufmannsroman "Soll und Haben" in unserem Brief ist also mehr als verständlich. - Ab 1858 erschien Gutzkows zweiter Großroman "Der Zauberer von Rom", der erst 1861 abgeschlossen wurde und wie die ebenfalls in unserem Brief erwähnte Serie "Ritter vom Geiste" neun Bände umfasste. - Gabriel Riesser (1806-1863) war Jurist, Politiker und vom 18. Mai 1848 bis 26. Mai 1849 Abgeordneter in der Frankfurter Nationalversammlung, wo er für Judenemanzipation eintrat. Sprache: de Gewicht in Gramm: 550 [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Occasional light foxing, a few tears (including one to title) repaired without loss. Overall in very good condition. Author's presentation inscription at top of title-page to Conselheiro Bartholomeu dos Martyres Dias e Sousa (shaved by the binder). ---- FIRST EDITION of Novaes' first book; a second edition was published in 1856. Innocêncio quotes a contemporary review: "é um poeta satyrico e jocoso, unico no genero entre nós. . . . É o poeta mais querido do povo, que se ri e enthusiasma diante das suas zombarias metricas." In his native Porto, from 1852 to 1855, Novaes (1820-1869) directed the monthly periodical @Bardo, which published poets from the leading edge of the romantic movement, where progressivism and humanitarianism were beginning to replace contemplation and pessimism. This volume includes the poem that introduced @Bardo, and the other poems are in a markedly satirical vein. Novaes emigrated to Brazil in 1858.---- Innocêncio II, 255; IX, 205: without publisher or collation. On the author, see Saraiva & Lopes, @História da literatura portuguesa (1976), pp. 846-7.

        JAPANESE WOOD BLOCK PRINT SHOWING THE BLACK SHIPS OF COMMODORE MATTHEW C. PERRY'S EXPEDITION ENTERING TOKYO HARBOR].

      [Tokyo? ca. 1855?] - 24 1/2 x 16 inches. Matted. Old fold lines, some minor wear and soiling. Near fine. Large wood block print, comprised of two sheets, showing the disposition of the Japanese soldiers and ships in preparation for the arrival of Commodore Perry's American fleet, seen sailing into Tokyo harbor at the right side of the image. The top third of the print is comprised of text (in Japanese characters). Three large American ships dominate the right side of the print, while several smaller boats dot the rest of the harbor. The whole is dotted with Japanese characters, denoting various people and places around the harbor. Perry first arrived in Japan on July 8, 1853, with a fleet of four ships, flying his pennant on the steam frigate, Susquehanna. This first visit lasted ten days, and culminated with Perry's presentation of a letter from the President of the United States to the Japanese commissioners on July 14. He then absented himself for seven months, returning on February 11, 1854 for a stay of over four months. He negotiated a treaty opening Japan to trade with the western world, providing for a U.S. consul in Japan, and protecting visiting ships and crews. Perry's visit to Japan remains one of the most important events in the diplomatic history between western and eastern nations. A handsome print, showing the Japanese side of this important historic event.

        11 tlw. eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Alexandria, 1855-1963.. Zus. 91 S., 8°. u. 4°.. Inhaltsreiche und interessante Briefe, hauptsächlich über geographische und geopolitische Angelegenheiten in Ägypten und anderen Ländern Afrikas. - 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. - Mit einer Beilage. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. -

        Essai sur l'Inegalite des Races Humaines.

      Paris & Hanover: Firmin Didot freres & Rumpler, 1853-1855 - 4 volumes, octavo (214 × 128 mm). Contemporary French red quarter morocco, decorative gilt spines, red morocco-grain cloth boards, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. A little foxing. All half-titles present. A very attractive set of this very scarce work, according to En francais dans le texte only 500 sets were printed. First edition of Gobineau's magnum opus and a work which made a deep and dark impression on European thought and action, albeit one "quite disproportionate to its scholarly insignificance and inconsequential argumentation" (Printing and the Mind of Man). Gobineau (1816-1882) "proclaimed the theory, since entirely disproved, that "race" is a permanent and immutable phenomenon, and he proclaimed the unchallengeable superiority of the white race over all others (.) This farrago of biological nonsense, wishful romanticism and imperialistic dreams was lapped up eagerly by French and German intellectuals" (PMM). The influence on German thinkers and artists such as Nietzsche and Wagner led to Gobineau's theories feeding down to Hitler and the Nazis. En francais dans le texte 271; Printing and the Mind of Man 335.

        The Practice of Photography, A Manual for Students and Amateurs

      Photographic Instituion, London, Hardcover (Original Cloth), Book Condition: Very Good Condition, Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket, Revised EditionDELAMOTTE, PHILIP H. The Practice of Photography, A Manual for Students and Amateurs, London: Photographic Institution, 1855. 12mo, second edition, revised, pp. viii, 166, 10 (ads), original green cloth boards with blind-stamped decoration and gilt-stamped lettering on upper panel, rebound and rebacked, with two blanks added to the front and one blank added to the rear. Frontis albumen print, rear endpage with a manuscript formula for "Writing upon glass." The author famously photographed London's Crystal Palace while it was under construction from 1851 to 1854. The print (about 3.75x5.5 inches or 9x14cm) he used for the frontispiece here shows the Colossi of Aboo Simbel display in the Palace, near completion. This manual is very scarce in any edition. The formula set down by hand here apparently provides a way to get captions into prints. It is unknown to me who wrote it. For more on Delamotte's Crystal Palace project, see Parr & Badger, V.1., p. 42. Condition of this book: Boards rubbed at corners. Leaves tight, but the frontis is foxed, mostly off the image, with soiling in the gutter. The image itself is surprisingly sharp but with the yellowing common to albumen prints, and the darker areas showing some mirroring. Size: 12mo. Text body is clean, and free from previous owner annotation, underlining and highlighting. Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact. All edges clean, neat and free of foxing. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo. Category: Antiquarian & Rare; Britain/UK; 19th century; Photography. Inventory No: 52116.

        ICONOGRAFIA ESPANOLA: COLLECCION DE RETRATOS, ESTATUAS, MAUSOLEOS Y DEMAS MONUMENTOS INÉDITOS DE REYES, REINAS, GRANDES CAPITANES, ESCRITORES, ETC Desde el Siglo XI hasta el XVII, copiados de los orginales.

      Madrid, Imprenta de Don Ramon Campuzano, 1855-1864. In folio (mm. 557 x 370), 2 voll., mz. pelle coeva con ang. (lievi abras.), taglio sup. dorato, pp.nn. 16 (di introduzione) e una straordinaria raccolta di 92 magnifiche tavv. disegnate dal vero da Valentin Carderera e litografate in tinta (9 sono cromolitografie), ciascuna con una o più figure, con testo biografico e descrittivo, in spagnolo e in francese, dello stesso Carderera. Collezionista, archeologo, pittore e scrittore spagnolo, Valentin Carderera y Solano (Huesca 1796 - Madrid 1880) fu un profondo studioso del mondo medioevale e un entusiasta valorizzatore dell?'opera di Goya, soprattutto nell?'ambito della incisione. Unendo l?'interesse archeologico per i cimeli del passato e le più moderne tecniche di stampa, l?'artista ci mostra con la sua eccezionale raccolta una galleria di uomini e donne illustri della storia spagnola. Con i suoi disegni di re, regine, religiosi, capitani e scrittori, "l?'Iconografia espanola" rende omaggio alle figure più incisive di certa storia patria che Carderera e i suoi contemporanei contruibuirono a costruire. La collezione - considerata il suo capolavoro - presenta anche statue, mausolei, sepolcri e monumenti, armi, armature e i più curiosi costumi che coprono un lasso di tempo di sette secoli, dall?'XI al XVII. Come precisato nel prologo: ?"Nous avons suivi, dans cet ouvrage, le cours des événements les plus saillants en y ajoutant une courte notice historique sur l?'art, les costumes et les usages, et nous avons adapté pour cela l?'ordre chronologique des personnages comme étant le plus logique et le plus clair?". La raccolta apre con le immagini di: Don Fernando I, el Magno - Don Alonso VI - D.a Urraca - su esposo D. Ramon de Borgona - D. Alonso VII, el Emperador e termina con Santa Teresa de Jesus y su hermana D.a Juana Ahumada. "Rarissima edizione originale". Con ingialliture o fiorit. per lo più marginali, ma certamente un buon esemplare su carta forte.
