Ce petit livre peu courant est, par surcroît, l'un des rares ouvrages non dédiés à la documentation qui utilisent, avant l'introduction du procédé de photogravure, la photographie comme moyen d'illustration. Cette dernière consiste en clichés de statues : le buste d'Horace en frontispice [4,5 x 6,5 cm], un putto tenant une grappe de raisin et un amour avec son arc [2 x 5,6 cm]. Ils sont tirés sur papier salé : le procédé, très à la mode en France des années 1840 à 1860, apporte à l'image un aspect mat et doux, ainsi que des tonalités naturellement chaudes. Coiffes un peu usées. Néanmoins, bon exemplaire dans sa reliure d'origine. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Album of Original Pen-and-Ink Drawings by a Student at the École Impériale d'Arts et Métiers d'Aix

      probably 1857-1860, Aix-en-Provence - Marbled paper over boards, backed in red sheep, gilt-stamped lettering in spine compartments; 311 x 230 mm; contains 70 double-page pen-and-ink drawings (open, they measure 311 x 445 mm), some enhanced with ink wash or watercolor, each with the artist's name and the professor's signatures (4 signatures in all). Boards and spine rubbed and scuffed; top corner of front board lacking. Contents are very near fine -- just some light foxing and a few small spots of soiling. Highly skilled technical drawings by Michel Clement, a student at the École Impériale d'Arts et Métiers d'Aix. The period of training was set at three years, with the first year devoted to arithmetic, geometry and drawing; the second year to descriptive geometry, trigonometry and mechanical drawing (of both stationary and moving parts); and the third year to industrial mechanics and advanced drafting techniques. This album affords a fascinating glimpse into the type and extent of the skills required of graduates of French technical schools in the mid-19th century. The course in design (cours de dessins) is structured, and presented here, in 4 sections: Troisieme division, premiere annee; deuxieme division (these drawings dated 1858-1859); deuxieme annee; and premiere division. The drawings include ornements (6), architecture (6), lavis (4), lever a l'equerre (1), echelles (1), epures (5), boulons et rivets (2), assemblages (1), geometrie descriptive (22), cinematique (5), organes de machine (3), topographie (2), machine outil (1), engrenages (6), machine a vapeur (1), treuil (1), machine a vapeur (2), hydraulique (1).

        Britton & Rey's Map of the State of California.

      San Francisco: Britton & Rey, 1857. - Single sheet, (31 x 25 ¼ inches). Fine folding lithographed map with original hand color in full (repaired tear, some browning and spotting). Original brown cloth with printed paper label (a bit rubbed). Provenance: From the important cartographical library of Warren Heckrotte, his sale, Rare Cartography, Exploration and Voyages, Part II, December 3, 2015, Lot 153. From the distinguished library of Thomas W. Streeter, his bookplate to the front pastedown. With the label of J.J. LeCount Bookbinder San Francisco on front pastedown. "BY FAR THE MOST COMPLETE AND ACCURATE MAP OF CALIFORNIA" (Wheat) First edition. Important map of California in first edition, with very distinguished provenance. Noted in California 49 as "the first reasonably accurate and complete map of the state. Towns, great and small, county boundaries, stage and wagon roads, including a few that traverse the Sierra Nevada, and California's first railroad from Sacramento to Folsom appear. None of the errors found on Eddy's map are present. Lake Tahoe. is shown at its correct location." Warren Heckrotte notes that "This is the Streeter-Grabhorn copy and the copy that Wheat says he used for making his description in Maps of the California Gold Region. The map is rare." "In 1857 the state of knowledge of Sierra Nevada geography was outlined in the most detailed map of California to date, a map prepared by civil engineer, surveyor, architect, and artist George H. Goddard. Goddard was born in Bristol, England, and was educated at Oxford. He, like many others, was drawn to California by the prospect of making his fortune in the gold rush. In 1850, at the age of 33, he sailed to California by way of Cape Horn. The journey from Plymouth to San Francisco, with an eight-day stopover in the Falkland Islands before rounding the Horn, took 180 days. His wife and two children remained in Europe until 1858, when the family was finally reunited. Within a year after their arrival in California a third child was born. "Goddard went to the goldfields and became a partner in a drugstore in Columbia, but by 1853 he had begun a career as a surveyor. He also maintained a professional interest in architecture, and began a serious interest in landscape painting. His first expedition was a survey of a possible railroad route over the Sierra at Sonora Pass, a route already traversed by a wagon road. The work led Goddard to other mapping excursions around the state. All the while he took copious notes and measurements that would help him later in compiling the California map. "In 1855, working for the California Surveyor General, he made a reconnaissance survey of the route over Carson Pass, and also surveyed the boundary between California and Utah Territory (in what is now western Nevada). For this work Goddard carried altitude and azimuth transits and chronometers, so that he could accurately determine by astronomical observations the latitude and longitude of important survey stations. When location and circumstance permitted, he checked the chronometers against time signals received on newly erected telegraph lines "The Goddard map of the state of California, published in 1857 by order of the Surveyor General of California [as here], is based partly on the Fremont map of 1848, though many details have been added and other improvements have been made. The map (Goddard, 1857) shows no trails crossing the Sierra in the 200-mile span of the range crest from Sonora Pass, north of Yosemite, to Walker Pass, 50 miles south of Owens Lake. No habitation is shown in Owens Valley. The U.S. Army's Fort Independence is not shown; it was established five years later, on July 4, 1862, as a result of skirmishes between settlers and Indians. The main settlement in the Central Valley of California adjacent to the parks area was Visalia (spelled 'Visaija' on the map). Fresno, Bakersfield, and Merced had not yet been settled. The map shows Tulare Lake to be about 40 miles long, whereas on the Fremont map [Attributes: First Edition]

Holloway no date ? 1857 - Small 8vo, 127 x 77 mms., pp. xvi [xvii dedication to William Wilberforce, xviii blank], 210 [211 - 212 blank], including half-title, engraved frontispiece and engraved title-page before printed title-page. BOUND WITH: H. (B.): A Companion to the Annals of the Poor. By H. B. Hyde: H. R. Holloway, [no date]. 8vo, 127 x 77 mms., pp. [9] - 61 [62 blank], with separate registration and pagination. 2 volumes in 1, bound in contemporary embossed cloth, blocked in gilt on spine; shaken in casing, front hinge cracked and tender, front joint snagged, top of spine chipped and worn. Inscribed horizontally on the recto of the front free end-paer, "To Mary/ With Cousin Alex's best love/ January 6th 1857." The evangelical Church of England clergyman, Richmond Legh (1772 - 1827) collected the stories in Annals of the Poor while he was living on the Isle of Wight and published them in the Christian Guardian between 1809 and 1814; the first collected edition was published in 1814 by the Religious Tract Society. I have not been able to identify "H. B.," who provides a memoir of the life of Legh Richmond in Annals; in his Preface to A Companion to the Annals of the Poor, he doesn't disclose any further information, saying only that "The following Appendix has been written to guide the pious or the curious pilgrim to scenes which the Rev. Legh Richmond has sanctified by rendering them subservient to the cause of holiness, and to afford such additional information as seem desirable to the inquiring way-farer, and to collect within a convenient and accessible space such matter as may tend to elucidate the 'Annals of the Poor.'" I have not located a separately-printed copy of the Companion. The Bodleian Library has a copy printed in Ryde in 1860, but the present copy's inscription confirms a publication earlier than 1857. Otherwise, I have not been able to locate any copy of this edition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Return to an Order of the Honourable The House of Commons, dated 23 March 1859; - for, A copy 'of the minutes of the proceedings, from the 1st day of May 1857, of the Commissioners to inquire into the subject of decimal coinage>. [London, 30 March 1859]. folio, 8 + (2)pp., with caption and docket titles. 5. Questions communicated by Lord Overstone to the Decimal Coinage Commissioners>. London: Eyre and Spottiswoode. 1857. folio, 187 + (1)pp. See Ford & Ford (Select British Parliamentary Papers 1833-1899>) p.28. King (Cat. of Parliamentary Papers 1801-1900>) 4995 and 4996. The Royal Commission on decimal coinage was dominated by Lord Overstone (Samuel Jones Lloyd) and by J.G. Hubbard (later Lord Addington), both of whom were opposed to adopting a decimal currency, in spite of the powerful and sustained case promoted by such active promoters as Sir John Bowring, Sir William Brown and Professor De Morgan. Palgrave in fact interestingly observes that by the appointment of the commission the subject was effectively kicked into the long grass. '...... but really with the view of again strangling the reform, the government agreed to appoint a royal commission, which consisted, in the result, of three men being appointed commissioners who were bitter enemies to any change, two of them, Lord Overstone and Mr. Hubbard (afterwards Lord Addington) being, to our certain knowledge, given to saying that they had made their money, as bankers and merchants, under the old system, and that as that was good in the past, it would be good enough in the future. The inevitable result of the commission, notwithstanding they had the testimony of men of advanced scientific intellect, and of high commercial reputation, before them in favour of the decimal system of coinage, and especially of the pound and mil scheme, was unfavourable. The royal commission arrived at twelve, on the whole, antagonistic resolutions'. [Palgrave, Dictionary of Political Economy>, I, p.517].

Unsigniert. - Künstlerisch sehr ansprechende unikate Skizze zu dem Holzschnitt "Der Wacholderbaum" von 1857. Aus der Sammlung Peter Kersten, einem Nachkommen des Künstlers. Auf beigem Velinbütten des 19. Jahrhunderts. - Unter Passepartout montiert. Insgesamt guter Zustand. Adrian Ludwig Richter (1803 Dresden - 1884 Dresden). Bedeutender Maler, Zeichner und Grafiker der deutschen Romantik und des Biedermeier. Sohn des Zeichners und Kupferstechers Carl August Richter. Nach der Schulzeit begann er 1815 als Lehrling seines Vaters, studierte daneben an der Kunstakademie in Dresden. 1820/21 begleitete er den russischen Fürst Narischkin als Zeichner auf einer Reise nach Paris. 1823-26 reiste er nach Italien, wo er unter anderen mit Joseph Anton Koch und Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld zusammentraf. Dies prägte seine idealistisch-harmonische Landschaftsauffassung. 1828-35 lehrte er an der Zeichenschule der Porzellanmanufaktur in Meißen, wo Gottfried Pulian zu seinen Schülern zählte. 1826 wurde er als Lehrer für Landschaftsmalerei an die Dresdner Kunstakademie berufen. Für die Reihe ?Das malerische und romantische Deutschland? des Leipziger Verlegers Georg Wigand schuf er die Ansichten für die Bände zu Harz, Franken und Riesengebirge. In den späten 1830er Jahren begann er mit Holzschnitt-Illustrationen für Bücher, die ihn unter einem größeren Laienpublikum in Deutschland bekannt machten. Schließlich wurde er zum Professor für Landschaftsmalerei in Dresden ernannt. 1873 musste er aufgrund eines Augenleidens mit dem Malen aufhören und schied 1876 aus der Kunstakademie in Dresden aus.
