        Reisen in Südwest-Afrika in den Jahren 1850 bis 1854. Aus dem Schwedischen von Dr. Hermann Lotze, 2 Bände.

      Leipzig, Otto Purfürst, o. J. (1857).. Erstausgabe. XVI, 288, IX, 288 S.Braune Halbleinenbände der Zeit mit goldgeprägten Rückentiteln sowie sehr schönem mehrfarbigen Buchschnitt. Mit 15 (v. 16) ganzseitigen Stahlstich-Tafeln in Tondruck sowie zahlreichen, partiell teilkolorierten Holzschnitt-Illustrationen (ohne die im Titel des ersten Bandes genannte Karte). Bd. 2 mit Alphabetischem Register. Faszinierende Reisebeschreibung des schwedischen Abenteurers und Forschungsreisenden Karl Johan Andersson (1827 - 1867). Anderssen brach im August 1850 von der südwestafrikanischen Hafenstadt Walfischbucht aus zusammen mit dem Afrikaforscher Francis Galton auf, um das Ovamboland im Norden des Landes und den Weg zum Ngamisee im Betschuanaland zu erkunden. Sie erreichten das Ovamboland 1852, das sie im Folgenden mehrere Monate durchstreiften, und wandten sich 1853 nach Osten Richtung Ngamisee. Andersson fertigte während der Reise zahlreiche Aufzeichnungen zur Flora und Fauna der Region an, die er später in dem zweibändigen Werk "Lake Ngami" (London 1856) veröffentlichte. Andersson gründete später in dem Ort Otjimbingwe eine erfolgreiche Handelsniederlassung, die er mit einer privaten Armee aus Herero-Freiwilligen schützte. Als dort am 15. Juni 1863 eine Kriegerschar des Stammes der Afrikaner erschien, die im Zuge einer Auseinandersetzung mit dem Hererohäuptling Maharero den Ort zu plündern versuchte, schlug Andersson an der Seite Mahareros die Eindringlinge zurück und wurde daraufhin ehrenhalber zum "Befehlshaber aller Herero auf Lebenszeit" ernannt, eine Ehre, wie sie sonst niemals einem Europäer zuteil wurde.. Die Bände in gutem, sauberem Zustand, ein deckel des ersten Bandes mit kleiner Stoßstelle (unauffällig), sonst kaum berieben oder bestoßen; Seiten partiell leicht fleckig; die Tontafeln sehr gut erhalten. Gutes Exemplar dieser frühen, überaus originell illustrierten südwestafrikanischen Reisebeschreibung aus der Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts. Sehr selten! Zahlreiche weitere Fotos auf der Homepage des Antiquariats (bitte Art.-Nr. auf der Angebotsseite in das Suchfeld eingeben).

        Ampio e interessante manoscritto autografo di otto pagine in - 4 su una colonna, con correzioni e cancellature autografe, dal titolo Delle lettere scelte di Pietro Giordani proposte alla gioventù, con un discorso di Filippo Ugolini (Barbera Bianchi e Comp., 1857). Si tratta della recensione al volume Lettere scelte di Pietro Giordani proposte alla gioventù, con un discorso di Filippo Ugolini. L'ho veduto Maestà, il libretto delle Lettere scelte di Pietro Giordani stampate dal Barbera ad uso della gioventù con il discorso premessovi da Filippo Ugolini, e mi è parso lodabile pensiero essere stato nello stampatore che non fosser privi al tutto dell'utile di un cotal libro, com'è l'epistolario del Girolami, da desiderarsi che vada per le mani di ognuno, i moltissimi cui può non esser facile né opportuno di compensarsi i sette volumi di quello pubblicati dal Gussalli a Milano. Anco in generale mi è parsa ben fatta la scelta delle lettere, chi pensi che volendo offerirle alla gioventù come modelli in simil genere di scritture, era da guardare più che altro alla perfetta eleganza, e da imporsi alcune leggi da osservare, come di lasciar finora tutte le lettere che non fossero intere, o raccontassero alcun fatto o contenessero alcuna espressione ch'a giovinetti non fosse utile di mostrare Quanto poi al discorso del'Ugolini premesso alle Lettere scelte io vorrei, Maestà, come lo commendo per il bene ch'è dice del Giordani scrittore oggi che tanto putridame il venerando suo nome, cosà poter commendarlo per tutte sue opinioni e per il modo di esporle. Dove anzi s'io guardo, e lo trovo in questo non troppo felice, e non so in quelle sempre convenire con lui. Conclude Di che io seriamente pensando, forte mi pento dell'ingiusta accusa portata contro li amici vostri, e dolente ve ne porgo mie scuse. Le quali purché siano accettate, volentieri prometto di mutar mia opinione quanto alla stima ch'io ho del Giordani. Ricomincio fin d'ora pieno d'orgoglio con vostra Maestà Oh qu'ils sont petits les grands hommes!' ed aggiungendoci Oh come son grandi i mediocri!' Maestà ho detto.

Die Militärschule wurde 1802 von Napoleon Bonaparte in Fontainebleau gegründet und 1808 nach Saint-Cyr in der Bretagne verlegt. Die Blätter sind von Gavard unterzeichnet und von Lehrern gegengezeichnet, der Name Boissonnel ist zu entziffern.

        Confessio Amantis of John Gower

      London - Bell and Daldy, 1857. London - Bell and Daldy, 1857 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. John Gower's Middle English narrative poem. Complete in three volumes. Edited by Dr. Reinhold Pauli, with an introductory essay on the poet's life and writings; first edition thus. The poem uses the confession made by an ageing lover to the chaplain of Venus as a frame story for a collection of shorter narrative poems. According to its prologue, it was composed at the request of Richard II. It stands with the works of Chaucer, Langland, and the Pearl poet as one of the great works of late 14th century English literature. One scholar asserts that Confessio Amantis almost exclusively made Gower's poetic reputation. John Gower (c. 1330 October 1408) was an English poet, a contemporary of William Langland and a personal friend of Geoffrey Chaucer. Gower's verse is by turns religious, political, historical, and moral. Condition: In calf bindings, expertly rebacked. Externally, smart with some wear to corners and one or two marks to boards. Internally, firmly bound. Foxing to first and last couple of pages but otherwise bright and clean. Overall: VERY GOOD.

        Amor und Ganymed, 1857

      1857. Bleistift auf Papier, unten rechts signiert und datiert: "Robert Krausse invenit Juni 1857", Durchmesser der Darstellung: 15 cm, Papiermaß: 20,6 x 18,1 cm. Amor und Ganymed sind beide zwar häufige Gäste auf Gemälden und Zeichnungen, doch gemeinsam tauchen Sie höchst selten auf. Dabei macht diese Paarung ikonographisch durchaus Sinn, denn die Liebe zwischen Ganymed und Zeus, der hier in Form des Adlers erscheint, steht im Mittelpunkt des Mythos. Häufig wird Ganymeds gewaltsamer Raub in der Kunst thematisiert. Hier konnten die Künstler den Kontrast zwischen roher Gewalt in Form des Adlers und hilfloser Unschuld in Gestalt des Knaben in mannigfaltigen Formvarianten ausdrücken. Robert Kraußes Darstellung zeigt einen späteren Zeitpunkt im Mythos: Ganymed ist bereits aufgestiegen, zum Mundschenk der Götter und Liebhaber Zeus' geworden. Aus dem Gewaltakt ist die freundschaftliche Umarmung geworden. Krauße nimmt mit dieser Darstellung den Geniekult wieder auf, der spätestens seit dem Sturm und Drang diese Geschichte bestimmt. Wenn Zeus in so vielen anderen Geschichten herabsteigt und sein Unheil auf der Erde anrichtet, bringt er hier einen Sterblichen in den Olymp. "Hinauf! Hinauf strebts." Ganymed ist ein Auserwählter der Götter, einer, der für Höheres bestimmt ist. So sahen und erträumten ihn Goethe, Thorvaldsen, George und viele andere. Die Zeichnung entstand im letzten Lehrjahr Kraußes bei Gustav Jäger an der Leipziger Akademie. Bei ihm hat er das Komponieren großformatiger biblischer Szenen gelernt. Dass er auch auf kleinem Format im Medium der Zeichnung zu überzeugenden Kompositionen fähig war, beweist dieses Blatt, das mit seiner ungewöhnlichen Idee und seiner brillanten Technik besticht.
