        Du scaphandre et de son emploi a bord des naivres

      With 1 double page plate and 1 folding plate. Morocco - backed marbled boards, with the original printed wrappers bound in. An excellent copy. First and only edition. While primitive underwater breathing methods had been around for centuries, the first real technological push towards underwater exploration was the diving bell - - little more than a hard, bell - shaped chamber that would retain a pocket of air when lowered into a body of water. Individual suits were a vast improvement over this early apparatus, and the work featured here focuses on a very specific type of diving suit patented by Joseph - Martin Cabirol, not too dissimilar to Augustus Siebe?s groundbreaking design in which a metal helmet was secured to the collar of a full - length suit, allowing the user more flexibility and freedom of movement. Though far from safe by today?s standards, the Cabriol diving suit did represent a leap forward with certain safety features. It even won the silver medal at the Exposition Universelle in Paris. The author here offers advice for the use of the Cabriol diving suit on board ships. He presents a basic outline of the mechanisms involved, the nomenclature, and various safety procedures. One of the most delightful parts of this booklet is the double page plate of a diver in full gear, axe in hand, posing contrapposto for the viewer. It conjures up images straight out of a Jules Verne novel - minus, of course, the giant sea monster. Du Temple was a first lieutenant in the French navy and evidently quite an authority on steam power (according to his credentials on the title page). In addition to his naval interests, Louis and his brother Felix also experimented with flight, designing, patenting, and creating some of the first flying machines in the world. Their 1857 model airplane is recognized as the first machine to achieve flight, predating the Wright brothers?s landmark 1903 manned flight by over 40 years. The du Temple brothers? ?monoplane,? a kind of one - man glider, was shown at the 1878 World?s Fair.

        WHITE LIES

      1857 - A Story. In Three Volumes. London: Trübner & Co., 1857. Original blind-stamped very pale green cloth. First Edition of this tale sited in France. In fact, as Reade points out in his Preface, "'White Lies' is a reprint." Well, not exactly. It began life as Reade's translation of Auguste Maquet's play "Le Château de Grantier." After it failed to find an English-language producer, Reade re-wrote it into this novel (which, ten years later, he re-adapted as a play, "The Double Marriage"). The novel came out at the beginning of Reade's glory days, just after IT IS NEVER TOO LATE TO MEND (1856) and THE COURSE OF TRUE LOVE NEVER DID RUN SMOOTH (1857), and before LOVE ME LITTLE, LOVE ME LONG (1858).~The publisher Trübner unfortunately chose for this title's binding a very pale green cloth -- such that we have never seen a copy even approach the level of "fine." This copy is very good (volumes a bit askew, a few signatures standing a little proud, very minor wear along the joints); the cloth remains much cleaner than is usually the case, and all the original endpapers remain intact. Curiously NOT in either the Sadleir nor the Wolff collection. Provenance: penciled signature of the bibliographer of Victorian works, Walter E. Smith. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Barchester Towers [A Knight Commander's Copy]  

      London: Longman, Brown, Green, Longmans, & Roberts, 1857. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing (with "tattooed" for "tabooed" on page 269, line 24 in Volume II) in three Volumes, elegantly rebound in contemporary three-quarter blue leather with marbled paper to the boards and marbled endpapers, the buttressed spines lined, lettered, and decorated gilt, boards lined in gilt, and the top edge of each closed page block gilded as well, showing some edge rubbing to each Volume - particularly to the bottom of the boards where the paper is somewhat rubbed through. [Volume I is bound without the half title -- no half-title is called for in Volumes II and III, and bound without the advertisement of "The Warden" at the front of, and without single leaf of Publisher's advertisements at the rear of, Volume I -- such elements being often having been removed when sets were contemporarily rebound. (Sadleir mentions that some copies contain a 32 page catalogue at the end of Volume I and that some copies were bound without such a catalogue -- this copy has no such catalogue.)] Having a nice Provenance, this set belonged to Sir Andrew Nobel of Ardmore and Ardardan, Nobel in the Co. of Dumbarton and Knight Commander of the Bath [i.e. the second most senior grade of seven British orders of chivalry] whose bookplate and shelf location sticker grace the front pastedown of each Volume. "Barchester Towers" is Trollope's fifth book and the second title in his famed Barchester series of six books [The Warden (1855), Barchester Towers (1857), Doctor Thorne (1858), Framley Parsonage (1861), The Small House at Allington (1864), and The Last Chronicle of Barset (1867)]. Set in Trollope's fictional town of Barchester, itself lying within his fictional Barsetshire, the novel provides a delightful satire of clerical life. Of the novel, Trollope wrote in his Autobiography: "In the writing of Barchester Towers I took great delight. The Bishop and Mrs. Proudie were very real to me, as were also the troubles of the archdeacon and the loves of Mr. Slope." Walpole said of the work: "...it remains as perhaps the [in italics] type of novel of all the Trollope family. It is the one book of them all that you would give to someone who said to you, 'Now what is Trollope really like [in italics]? What is [in italics] the point about Trollope?' This book introduces and exults over one of the greatest figures in the Barsetshire Chronicles - Mrs. Proudie....The theme...is one eternally attractive - the theme of the bitter bit, the bully bullied, the war between tyrants." A Very Good, elegantly bound, copy of the first edition of one of Trollope's most important and lasting novels.

        Motiv aus dem Thüringer Wald mit einem Bach.

      . Schwarze Kreide, auf cremefarbenem Whatman-Papier, rechts unten monogrammiert und datiert "CW 57", verso signiert und datiert "C. Wagner inv. 1857". 21,2:30 cm. Verso an den Ecken Klebereste.. Seine Schulausbildung und Erziehung erhielt der Sohn des bekannten Dichters E. Wagner (1769-1812) gemeinsam mit dem herzoglichen Erbprinzen Bernhard. Zunächst absolvierte er 1812-1815 ein Studium der Forstwissenschaft. Schon früh entwickelte er jedoch eine starke Neigung zur Malerei und nahm Zeichen- und Malunterricht bei T. Faber (1786-1863), C.A. Richter (1770-1848), Vater des bekannten A.L. Richter (1803-1884). Infolge brach er seine Ausbildung zum Forstwirt ab und besuchte die Dresdner Kunstakademie bis 1820. Dann ging er für kurze Zeit zum Studium an die Heidelberger Universität. Im Herbst des Jahres begleitete er Herzog Bernhard auf einer Reise durch die Schweiz bis nach Mailand. Nach seiner Rückkehr im Winter 1820 wurde er sogleich herzoglicher Hofmaler und Galeriedirektor in Meiningen. 1822-1825 lebte er in Rom, wo er dem engen Freundeskreis um A.L. Richter angehörte, mit dem er gemeinsam das Albaner- und Sabinergebirge durchstreifte. Die Freundschaft nahm jedoch aufgrund eines Streites noch in Italien ein jähes Ende. 1823 unternahm er eine Reise nach Neapel und Ischia, gemeinsam mit C.W. Götzloff (1799-1866) und wohl auch E.F. Oehme (1797-1855). Nach seiner Rückkehr nach Meinigen wurde er erneut von Herzog Bernhard zum Galerieinspektor und Hofrat ernannt.

        Cenni sul Museo Civico di Milano ed Indice sistematico dei Rettili ed Anfibi

      Milano: Giacomo Pirola, 1857. Large octavo, large folding plan, 61 pp., some spotting but a very good copy, in neat modern green paper boards. The first guide to the natural history collections of Milan. Complete with the large folding plan, which gives a detailed overview of a collection of international significance, and one which included one of the most important early collections of Australian snakes and reptiles.A rare publication describing in detail the natural history collections of Milan, and particularly the collection of Reptiles and Amphibians.The Milan Natural History Museum was founded in 1838 by naturalists Giuseppe de Cristoforis and Giorgio Jan, who donated their private collections in order to make a new collection on the newest scientific principles. The Museum opened in 1844 with Jan, an important herpetologist, botanist and naturalist, as the first Director.An interesting and very modern feature of the museum, described at page 11, was the design of the labels of the specimens. The frame of every label of every species was coloured with a different colour according to the Continent to which each species belongs (Asia was yellow, for example, while Oceania was blue).Sadly the collection endured almost comprehensive losses during the Second World War when it was bombed in 1943, which does make such printed guides even more significant as a reflection on what has been lost.This guide, the first such published, includes a detailed description of the museum (pp. 1-25); an introduction to the scientific designation of reptiles and amphibians (pp. 27-33); and a detailed list of the specimens held in Milan (pp. 35-61). Of the actual specimens, the Museum had approximately 400 mammals, 1900 birds, a genuinely impressive 950 reptiles (which would have made it one of the preeminent collections in the world), and 900 fish. Included in this number are a great quantity of Australian and Pacific species: of reptiles, 39 from Australia, 1 from Tasmania, and 3 from New Zealand, together with 10 Australian amphibians. The museum also hosted any number of more familiar Australian birds and animals such as the Thylacine, platypus, echidna and many birds.

        Schlucht bei Civitella.

      . Aquarell über Bleistift, auf Papier mit Wasserzeichen: J Whatman 1857, rechts unten monogrammiert "EWP."19,5:24,3 cm. - Mit leichtem Lichtrand rundum, leicht vergilbt, verso an den Rändern Reste einer alten Verklebung. Provenienz: Kunsthandlung F.A.C. Prestel, Frankfurt am Main, hier 1958 vom Vorbesitzer erworben. Wiederholung desselben Motivs, das schon 1853 entstanden ist. Die gezeigte Landschaft liegt zwischen Olevano und dem höher gelegenen Civitella, dem heutigen Bellegra in den Bergen. Vergleichsliteratur: Ausst. Katalog: Ausgewählte Werke Frankfurter Maler. Frankfurt am Main, Kunsthandlung Julius Giessen, 2000, S. 6 mit Farbabb.; D. Riccardi, Olevano e i suoi Pittori. Gli artisti di lingua tedesca (Germania, Austria, Svizzera). Roma, 2004, Farbabb. 211, S. 169. Riccardi nimmt den Aufenthalt in Civitella um 1843 an.. Derart bildmäßig durchgeführte Aquarelle Poses sind recht selten. In einer Rezension der Pose-Ausstellung, die die Kunsthandlung F.A.C. Prestel 1938 zeigte, schreibt Dr. Ernst Benkard in der Frankfurter Zeitung vom 14.04.1938 u.a.: "... Urteilt man weiter auf Grund des Materials der Ausstellung, ist er dann durch einen Aufenthalt in München und Tirol (Gemälde: Alpenlandschaft), besonders durch seine Jahre in Italien (nach 1842), von der Natur zu einer Freiheit gediehen, die ihn befähigte, ein noch etwas kompakteres Plainair zu pflegen, die ihm ferner im zeichnerischen Entwurf eine gelöste Weite des Sehens geschenkt hat. Man muß die zeitliche Entstehung seiner frühimpressionistischen Landschaftsbilder (Tivoli, Olevano, Giardino Borghese) wohl bedenken, um der Qualität ihren historischen Platz einzuräumen....". Ersten Unterricht erhielt der Maler durch seinen Vater Ludwig Pose (geb. 1786, in Italien 1840/41) 1829/30-1834 und 1835/36 durch die Düsseldorfer Kunstakademie. Seit 1832/33 gehörte er der Landschaftsklasse von J.W. Schirmer (1807-1863) an. Er unternahm Wanderungen und Studienfahrten in die Umgebung Düsseldorfs und hatte Kontakte zu J. Becker (1810-1872), C.F. Lessing (1808-1880) und A. Rethel (1816-1859). Zusammen mit A. Achenbach (1815-1910) wechselte er 1836 nach München und nahm dort Verbindung zu C. Rottmann (1797-1850) auf, der ihn an seinem gerade begonnenen Zyklus griechischer Landschaften mitarbeiten ließ. Vorübergehend ging er, wegen der in München ausbrechenden Cholera, nach Frankfurt am Main. Er unternahm Studienreisen ins Salzburger Land, nach Paris und Brüssel sowie nach Tirol. Zwischen 1838 und 1842 lebte er überwiegend in Düsseldorf und 1842-1845 in Italien, vornehmlich in Rom, aber auch in Unteritalien und Sizilien. 1845 ließ er sich in Frankfurt am Main nieder, reiste 1849 nochmals nach Italien und gehörte in seinen späteren Jahren dem in Kronberg im Taunus aktiven Malerkreis an. Seine Gemälde bereitete er durch zahlreiche Studien sorgfältig vor und pflegte eine an Schirmer und Lessing orientierte mit Lichteffekten komponierte Landschaftskunst. Seine Ölstudien sind meist weder signiert noch bezeichnet.

        L'uomo fisico, intelletuale e morale

      1857. BLASIS, Carlo di. L'uomo fisico, intelletuale e morale. [4], 224, 108 pp. Illustrated with 2 frontispieces, 5 engraved plates, and various technical drawings in the appendix. 8vo., 250 x 175 mm, bound in contemporary green and black morocco-backed boards, with the original illustrated wrappers preserved. Milano: Tipografia Guglielmini, 1857. |~||~||~||~| An extremely rare work by Carlo Di Blasis, an important teacher and writer on the technique, history, and theory of dancing. He was the first to codify and publish an analysis of the classic ballet technique in his Traité élémentaire, théorique, et pratique de l'art de la danse (1820). In 1837 Di Blasis was appointed director of the ballet school at La Scala, where he trained many of the most brilliant dancers of the 19th century. Carlotta Grisi and Fanny Cerrito studied with him as established stars. Blasis is credited with creating the position of attitude with inspiration from Giambologna's statue of Mercury; in this, the dancer's working leg is raised and extended to the back but bent at the knee. He also discovered the technique for preventing dizziness while turning, called spotting, by which the dancer snaps his head around more quickly than the rest of his body, and so be able to maintain a focus on one "spot" and not become dizzy. Many of Blasis's traditions and innovations, were handed down directly through his pupils and were also recorded in his second book, The Code of Terpsichore (1830). They still form the basis of classic dance training. A little edgeworn, overall an exceptional copy with the original wrappers bound in. OCLC lists only two copies in the US, at Harvard and the New York Public Library.
