        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.

'In 1849, on the recommendation of Bunsen and Ritter, and the Prussian ambassador in London, Barth was appointed to an expedition under the direction of the British explorer James Richardson, who had been selected by the British government to open up commercial relationships with the sub-Saharan states of North Africa' (Howgego). During this extraordinary five-year expedition, Barth explored large parts of the region, including the Libyan desert, the Sahara, and the Sudan, as well as becoming 'the first European to penetrate Agades officially' (Carr, The Nomad's Path, p. 30). The resulting five-volume work is one of the key works on North and Central Africa written during the 19th century, providing extensive information on the different languages, traditions, religious practices, and political institutions of the region.

In almost all of his writings, he emphasized the moral purpose of literature. It was as dramatist that Dumas was most successful.

        1857 CHARLES the FIFTH William ROBERTSON W. Prescott

      London - George Routledge & Co., 1857. London - George Routledge & Co., 1857 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A bright one volume edition of Charles the Fifth by William Robertson. Bound in half leather and marbled paper-covered boards, with gilt lettering. In one volume, complete. With Geo. Robertson's bookbinder's ink stamp on the front free-endpaper. With a prize nameplate from Geelong Ladies College. William Robertson, 1721 1793, was a Scottish historian and Principal of the University of Edinburgh. He was educated in Dalkeith and at the University of Edinburgh, where he studied divinity. He became minister at Gladsmuir in 1743 and later at Lady Yester's Kirk and Greyfriars Kirk in Edinburgh. A staunch Presbyterian and Whig, he volunteered to defend the city against the Jacobites led by Prince Charles Edward Stuart in 1745. During his lifetime, Robertson became Royal Chaplain to George III , Principal of the University of Edinburgh, Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, and Royal Historiographer. He was also a member of the Poker Club. Robertson was a significant figure in the Scottish Enlightenment and also of the moderates in the Church of Scotland. William Hickling Prescott, 1796 1859, was an American historian, known for his books The History of the Reign of Ferdinand and Isabella the Catholic and The History of the Conquest of Mexico. Prescott graduated from Harvard in 1814. He made an extended tour in Europe, and on his return to America he married, and abandoning the idea of a legal career, resolved to devote himself to literature. In all his works Prescott displayed great research, impartiality, and an admirable narrative power. He was a man of amiable and benevolent character, and enjoyed the friendship of many of the most distinguished men in Europe as well as in America. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. The front inner hinge is strained and pagesiii-vi are starting to come away, but still firmly attached. There is mild wear to the extremities, including mild bumping and rubbing. Internally the pages are bright and clean, with some scattered spotting to the first and last few pages. There are ink stamps and signatures on the front free-endpaper and front blank. Overall the condition is very good..

        Report on the United States and Mexican Boundary Survey Made Under the Direction of the Secretary of the Interior.

      Washington Cornelius Wendell 1857 - "Report on the United States and Mexican Boundary Survey" With 346 Plates EMORY, William. H. Report on the United States and Mexican Boundary Survey, Made Under the Direction of the Secretary of the Interior. Washington: Cornelius Wendell, 1857. First edition. Three thick quarto volumes bound in two. Illustrated with 346 plates, many lithographed in color, plus charts, two map (one folding) and profiles. Publisher's original brown cloth, rebacked perserving the original spine with newer leather labels, decoratively blindstamped on covers, gilt-stamped on spines. Extremities lightly rubbed. Very good. One of the foundation works on the exploration and mapping of the Texas-Mexican border. Emory was first assigned to the Boundary Commission after the Mexican War. No sooner was the survey finished than the Gadsden Purchase necessitated a new survey, which is summarized in this work. Incorporated into these volumes, along with Emory's report, are numerous scientific reports by James Hall, T.A. Conrad, and others, as well as superb maps by Jekyll and Hall, and important views and plates after Schott, Weyss, and Vaudricourt. The commission undertook one of the first systematic studies of the topography and natural features of the area, and the boundary as surveyed has remained intact, with only minor alterations, for the last 125 years. Of special note are the twenty-five fine colored plates of birds, lithographed by Bowen & Company, included in the report "Birds of the Boundary" by Spencer Baird, and here present in fine state, as well as handsome color plates of Indians and scenery.

        A handsome oil portrait, signed by the artist, of Washington Irving

      In fine condition..27.5 x 21.5 inches in a simple (and probably original) wooden oak frame. On the back of the canvas are the large neat block letters identifying the subject. Charles A. Gray was born in Iowa in 1857. He painted portraits of Presidents McKinley and Garfield and playwright Eugene O'Neil, among others. This copy of the popular image of Irving was undoubtedly made to sell in his gallery. Gray made similar copies of other prominent American literary figures, including Harriet Beecher Stowe. A fine portrait of Irving after a famous photographic portrait that proliferated during the author's final years. The genesis of the photograph is not certain, but it was believed to have been taken circa 1850 by John Plumbe, sometime associate of Mathew Brady. Brady is known to have sold copies of the portrait in various sizes at his studio.

        ROSSETTI, MILLAIS, HUNT, ETC: THE MOXON TENNYSON] Poems

      Edward Moxon, London 1857 - Superbly bound in full crushed green morocco with bold gilt embossed strapwork and floral design on both covrers and ornately on spine, by "J. Wright." John Wright was an accomplished bookbinder in the mid 19th Century whose bindings were described by Ramsden "a binder of the highest order." The Moxon Tennyson is heralded as containing the very first wide selection of art by the Pre-Raphaelites, only seven years after the publication of the Germ. With over 60 superb woodcut illustrations, the edition was reprinted many times in following years, but the original 1857 edition, with a medallion portrait of Tennyson by Thomas Woolner as frontispiece, remains the book of choice for any PRB collector. A superb fine copy with no browntoning or wear to any of the pages. Binding is also fine, with very minimal wear to top and bottom of spine. Scarce thus. [Attributes: First Edition]

        16 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Paris, Jerusalem u. Beirut, 1857-1861.. Zus. 64 S., 8° bis 4°.. Dequevauviller, der neben seiner Muttersprache Französisch auch noch Latein, Griechisch, Persisch, Arabisch und Kurdisch sprach, lernte in Persien, wo er 25 Jahre unterrichtete, Bischof Valerga, den Patriarchen von Jerusalem kennen, dessen Generalvikar er später werden sollte. - 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.

        Journal of the Constitutional Convention, of the Territory of Minnesota, Begun and Held in the City of Saint Paul, Capital of Said Territory, on Monday, the Thirteenth Day of July, One Thousand Eight Hundred and Fifty-seven

      St. Paul: Earle S. Goodrich State Printer, Pioneer and Democrat Office, 1857 - 209 p. Appendixes include the Enabling Act; Legislative Act Providing for the Expenses of the Constitutional Convention; the Constitution of the State of Minnesota, an Amendment to the Constitution, approved March 9, 1858; Vote upon Constitution, with tallies by county, and the volume also has an Analytical Index to the Constitution of Minnesota. H.H. Sibley, later a governor of the state, was elected president pro tem. This is the journal of the Democrats' Constitutional Convention. Theodore C. Blegen, author of Minnesota: A History of the State (University of Minnesota Press, 1963), explained "., Minnesota had two constitutional conventions [one Democrat, the other Republican], both functioning at the same time in the same building." The two never met as a single body, but eventually the two official, signed, constitutions were produced and still exist separately. However, a joint committee worked out a compromise that still serves the state, with some amendments agreed to by the populace. Original buckram [?] cover with pasted label, very good with a few light spots, small dent in upper edge of back cover, three very tiny worm or moth holes at back spine. The first 64 pages are browning, but not brittle; the remaining pages are very, very good. There are two spots and some light foxing at endpapers. An inscription is clearly written but a little hard to decipher, but it may have said , "Mr Wilford J. Whitefield from [or to?] his daughter Mrs. John H. Law," with additions indicating that the volume was presented to the Minnesota Historical Society, with the penciled date 12 Oct. 35. The seller offering this book purchased it some years ago as part of a large lot for which MHS took bids from booksellers. Not listed in Library of Congress catalog [Attributes: Soft Cover]
