        Schriftsteller und Stimmführer der Jungdeutschen Bewegung (1811-1878): Eigenh. Brief mit 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: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 550 [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Jerusalem, from the Mount of Olives.

      Cairo c. 1858 - Albumen print. Very good tonal range and in fine condition. Pasted on original card, photographer's credit and title printed on card. Mounted. Photograph's dimensions: 37 x 48 cm, overall dimension: 65 x 76 cm. A spectacular early photograph of the old city of Jerusalem and its surrounding hills by a renowned master of the medium. From his perspective on the Mount of Olives, Frith captured the walls of the ancient city with houses and buildings distinguishable within. The left side of the photograph shows The Dome of the Rock, one of the holiest sites in Islam. Francis Frith (1822 – 1898) was a renowned photographer, who documented the Middle East as well as the many towns of his native England. He left his cutlery business in 1850 to establish a photographic studio in Liverpool, known as Frith & Hayward. In 1853 he became one of the founders of the Liverpool Photographic Society. Two years later Frith sold his companies and fully dedicated himself to photography. He journeyed to the Middle East on three occasions, the first of which was a trip to Egypt in 1856. Having returned to Surrey from his travels in 1859 he opened the firm of Francis Frith & Co, which became one of the most successful photographic studios of its time.

A wonderful compendium of elegant and ornate furntiture including a baby's "Cot", bookcases, desks, tables, chimney pieces, beds, sofas, etc. The Description of Plates identifies the date of each piece, what it is made of, its provenance and the exhibition at which it was displayed. There is also a list of Names of Subscribers. The very fine engravings are by E. Salandri after drawings by J. Braund. .

Mit bewunderungswürdigem Fleiß studierte Kaeuffer (1793-1865) die ihm zugängliche Literatur zur ostasiatischen Geschichte, Geographie, Kultur, Philosophie und Religion. Aus ihr entwarf er ein ganzheitliches Bild der Geschichte Ostasiens.

A Very Good copy of "Wuthering Heights" by Emily Bronte and of "Agnes Grey" by Anne Bronte, issued together in this "New Edition" in one volume [i.e. the Third Edition], with a Preface and Memoir of Both Authors by Charlotte Bronte, bound in the Publisher's original orange cloth (mild edge wear, fading to the spine panel and board extremities, small and unsurprising gap between the spine and the closed page block); a single volume presenting "Wuthering Heights" (originally published in 1847, a year before Emily Bronte's death in 1848) and "Agnes Grey" (also first published in 1847, shortly before Anne Bronte's death in 1849). Emily Bronte's only novel, "Wuthering Heights" is considered to be one of English Literature's great classics, while Irish novelist George Moore described Anne Bronte's debut novel, "Agnes Grey", as "the most perfect prose narrative in English letters". This copy of the third edition is complete with four pages of advertisements to the rear, additional advertisements to both the pastedowns as well as to the front fee endpaper's recto and the rear free endpaper's verso.

        Collection of watercolours showing Indian Navy ships in the Arabian Gulf. Includes Collingwood's original surveying telescope.

      [Mostly Arabian Gulf], 1856-1858. - Three hand-drawn watercolours showing the "Coromandel" (148 x 225 mm), the "Tigris" (178 x 240 mm), and the "Georgiana" (142 x 240 mm), mounted on backing paper, separately matted. With a presentation leather-cased 1½-inch three-draw leather-covered surveying telescope and compass compendium by Andrew Ross, London, contained in 29 cm leather carry case with lid enclosing a lacquered-brass compass, collapsed length 25 cm, expands to 71 cm. A striking collection of original watercolours drawn by Lieutenant William Collingwood, civil engineer in the Royal Indian Navy, during his surveying mission to the Middle East in the mid-1850s. The three ships, all built for the "Honourable [East India] Company", are the H.C. Screw Troop Ship "Coromandel" ("1112 Tons. Commander C. D. Campbell I.N. London to Madras Aug. to Nov. 1856"), the H.C. Brigantine "Tigris" ("Persian Gulf. Entering "Cheroo" Bay. August 1857"), and the H.C. Schooner "Georgiana" ("Lieut. Collingwood Comd. off 'Karack', Feb. 1858"). While the exact location of the "Coromandel" at the time of sketching is not identified (though Collingwood was undoubtedly in the Arabian area at the time), the other two ships are clearly sailing the Arabian Gulf. The "Tigris" is shown entering Cheroo Bay (Chiruyeh, Bandar-e Chiru), on the south coast of Persia, opposite Inderabi Island; the bay was popular with navigators in the region for offering safe shelter from western and northwestern winds, with regular soundings of up to ten fathoms quite near the shore. The "Georgiana" is pictured farther north off Kharg Island, 16 miles from the coast of Bushehr province. Kharg is mentioned in the 10th-century "Hudud al-'alam" as a good source for pearls and was visited by Jean de Thévenot in 1665, who recorded trade with Isfahan and Basra. After the Dutch Empire established both a trading post and a fort on the island in 1753, the Dutch fort was captured in 1766 by Mir Mahanna, the governor of Bandar Rig. The island was briefly occupied in 1838 by the British to block the 1838 Siege of Herat but was soon returned. - Slight loss to upper left corner of all three sheets; some brownstaining and traces of folds, but well-preserved on the whole. The ensemble is neatly complemented by Collingwood's presentation surveying telescope and compass compendium, the telescope being signed and inscribed: "From Comr. Selby, Surveyor in Mesopotamia, to Lieut. W. Collingwood, Asst. Surveyor, in kind remembrance of Services together in Babylonia & Irak Arabia". Commander W. B. Selby, who dedicated this fine telescope-cum-compass set, began his distinguished surveying career in 1837 when, as a midshipman, he embarked on the expedition first to lay navigation buoys in the mouths of the Indus River and then to chart some coastal areas in the "Horn of Africa". By 1846 he was back working off the mouths of the Indus, having made his reputation in Mesopotamia (in 1840-41), and thereafter achieved considerable acclaim for his numerous other surveys, including those during the military expedition to Persia in 1856, before returning to England at the end of 1862. He was succeeded as Surveyor of Mesopotamia by his protégé, Lt. William Collingwood (a distant cousin of the Admiral), who had already done much valuable work in the region, including the large-scale, though surreptitious, mapping of Baghdad in 1855, described by him as follows: "The survey of the city of Baghdad was completed entirely by myself and under very unpleasant restrictions [.] The Turkish Government were not to know anything about it [.] and I was left to survey the town as best I could, and under such difficulties that at times I had to note bearings and paces all over my white shirt, where best I could get the pencil at the time [.]". During this same expedition, Collingwood also surveyed the Shatt-ul-Arab, the city of Bussorah (also by stealth) and much of the country between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers, and was undoubtedly one of the most gifted [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Wien, 6. III. 1858. - 2 SS. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt. Folio. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief) und rotem Siegel. An Alfred Ritter von Franck (1808-84) sowie dessen Ehegattin Caroline von Franck (die Tochter des Schauspielers Wenzel Scholz): "Die Popularität des verewigten Komikers 'Wenzel Scholz' hat mich veranlaßt, ihn zum Helden eines dramatischen Genrebildes zu wählen. Das Stück, unter dem Titel 'Wenzel Scholz' spielt im Jahre 1828. Wenzel Scholz selbst ist in seine biedere Natürlichkeit, seinen trockenen drastischen Humor, und in seiner fast kindlichen Gutmüthigkeit gezeichnet. Die Basis des Stückes ist: dass Einer seiner Verwandten, ein Herr Wenzel von Plümecke auftaucht, ein Menschen- und Theaterfeind, der seinen Vetter Wenzel von Plümecke zwingen will, das Theater zu verlassen, der Künstler versöhnt durch seinen Humor seinen Vetter mit dem Theater und dem Leben und beweist, dass er als Edelmann den Platze Ehre macht, auf den ihn sein Beruf gestellt. - Von allen andern Familienverhältnissen ist keine Erwähnung - nichts wird berührt, was seine Verwandten und Freunde die geringste Veranlassung zur Missbilligung geben könnte - und er selbst steht so liebenswürdig und dramatisch wirksam da [ ]". - Mit einigen Einrissen. - Wenzel Scholz (1787-1857) bildete seit 1826 gemeinsam mit Johann Nestroy das populärste Komikerduo Wiens am Theater in der Josefstadt. Nestroy schrieb für ihn zahlreiche Rollen. Karl Haffner erhielt 1841 die Stelle des "Hausdichters" am Theater an der Wien, später am Josefstädter Theater, und war Schriftleiter der satirischen Wochenschrift "Böse Zungen".

      Rio de Janeiro, Bernardo Xavier Pinto de Sousa, 1858. - 11 volumes bound in 1.@ 8°, contemporary green quarter morocco (extremities a bit worn), flat spine, gilt letter, with horizontal gilt fillets. Internally very fine. Presentation inscription on recto of front free endpaper: "Ao Exm° Am° Jorge Cesar de Figaniére, tributo de admiração ao talento, á evidição ao merito litterario," signed by the brother of the translator "J.F. de Castilho". Overall a fine copy. Lithographic portrait, 119 pp.; 102 pp., (1 blank l.); 103 pp.; 784 pp. [unnumbered blank leaf after p. 604]. *** FIRST EDITION of the first Portuguese translation of the @Amores. The translation, in volumes I-III, is followed by the lengthy @Grinalda Ovidiana, with extensive notes on the text, a guide to mythological figures and a life of Ovid. On the leaf immediately following the title-page of volume I, the translator alerts "adolescentes de um e outro sexo" that the present work contains "mysterios de iniquidade," and that if they read it despite his warning, they have only themselves to blame. (Could there be a better way to entice teenagers to read the classics?) The only earlier translation into Portuguese of any of Ovid's works appears to be Castilho's translation of the @Metamorphoses, of which only volume I was published, Lisbon, 1841. He also translated the @Fasti and the @Ars amatoria, Lisbon, 1862.Antonio Feliciano de Castilho (1800-1875) ranks as one of the three best Romantic writers in Portugal, along with Almeida Garrett and Herculano. He published numerous works of poetry and prose, founded and edited the @Revista universal Lisbonense (1841-45) and began the series "Livraria Classica Portuguesa," for which he wrote the studies of Bernardes and Garcia de Resende. His translation of Faust roused a heated controversy among students of German language and literature ("a questão faustiana"), and his 1865 condemnation of the young writers of Coimbra?Antero de Quental, Teofilo Braga, Vieira de Castro?for "nebulosidade" incited Quental to write Bom senso e bom gôsto.A native of Lisbon, Castilho went blind at the age of six but nevertheless earned a degree in law from Coimbra. Aside from his literary activities, he invented a new method for teaching children to read, the "methodo portuguez," which he attempted to implement while serving as Comissario Geral de Instrucção Primaria.*** Innocêncio I, 134; VIII, 132: listing only the first 2 volumes.

        Szózat Igor hadjáratárul a palócok ellen. (H?sköltemény az oroszok ?skorábul.) Magyarította Riedl Szende. [The Tale of Igor's Campaign. Epic Poem From the Ancient Time of the Russians.]

      I. L. Kober. (On cover: Pest. Lampel Róbert.) [Printed in Prague by Friedrich Rohlí?ek.], Prága és Lipcse [Prague and Leipzig], 1858 - First Hungarian edition. Lampel's vignette on cover. In publisher's wrappers, printed in green. (9), 6-42 p., (14 [pages of advertisement of the publisher, printed by Jaroslav Pospe?il in Prague; and (8) p. advertisement of "Album. Bibliothek deutscher Originalromane".]). First Hungarian edition, early translation of one of the earliest Slavonic language writings "The Tale of Igor's Campaign". Translated by the Hungarian historian and linguist Szende Riedl (1831-1873) after the German edition. Riedl was an expert on the historical connections between the Slavs and the Hungarians, thus he found the story of Igor's campaign against the Polovtsians particularly important to be translated and introduced to the Hungarian public. The identity between the Polovtsians and the Cumans was recently proven by Riedl's colleague János Jerney, who even stated that their language was Hungarian and were the ancestors of the Hungarians. Riedl explains the importance of the text and its context in the ten-page foreword, that followed by the translation and the notes. "The Tale of Igor's Campaign" is one of the oldest Slavonic language text, a medieval epic poem from the late 12th century about the unsuccessful campaign of Prince Igor Svyatoslavich, prince of the Russian lands of Novgorod-Seversky against the Polovtsians (or Cumans). The tale was written anonymously around 1185 and its only manuscript, dated to the 15th century, was discovered in 1795 by Aleksei Musin-Pushkin and burned during Napoleon's invasion of Russia in 1812. Musin-Pushkin published the text in 1800 with the help of Alexei Malinovsky and Nikolai Bantysh-Kamensky, leading Russian paleographers of the time. It was first published in German in 1803 and in 1858 in Hungarian. Scarce, we could trace only three copies in institutional holdings worldwide. Artistically restored. In very good condition. In publisher's wrappers, printed in green First Hungarian edition. Lampel's vignette on cover. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      Joseph Woods, Printer, St John’s, Newfoundland. (1857 et 1858). 1857 - 2 vol. in-folio (310 x 240 mm.) de : 303 pp. (1857) et 458 pp. (pp.417-418 dépliantes). Demi-maroquin à coins d’époque, rose pour 1857, bleu pour 1858, dos lisses titrés, plats recouverts de papier marbré, tranches jaspées. Rares exemplaires des troisième et quatrième sessions de la sixième Assemblée Générale du Conseil Législatif de Terre Neuve, pour les années 1857 et 1858. Le Gouvernement était alors orgnaisé en deux chambres, le Conseil Législatif, rattaché à la Grande Bretagne étant la plus conservatrice des deux. Le premier des deux volumes est particulièrement intéressant, car c'est l'année où Charles Henri Darling (1809-1870) fut Gouverneur pour la Grande Bretagne. Il soutenait notamment le point de vue britannique selon lequel il fallait laisser aux Français de plus grands espaces pour la pêche à la baleine (notamment entre le Cap St John et le Cap Roy), ce qui était contraire à l'opinion générale et qui le força à abandonner son poste (il fut par la suite gouverneur de la Jamaïque). Le détail de ces débats est retranscrit dans ce journal. Bel exemplaire. 2 vols. folio. 2 folding pages. Contemporary half morocco (pink for 1857, blue for 1858). Scarce copies of the third and fourth sessions of the 6th General Assembly of the Legislative Council. At this time, Newfoundland's system of representative government was bicameral: the Legislative Council was closer from the British and more conservative. In the journal for the year 1857, one can found the debate regarding the grant to the French of more fishing rights in waters of Newfoundland. Fine copy.

Ingenmey (1830-1878) eine Lithographie für das König-Ludwig-Album, die entweder nach unserer Zeichnung oder nach dem Gemälde entstanden ist. Das Album war 1851/59 von Piloty und Loehle in München herausgegeben worden. Literatur: F. von Boetticher, Malerwerke des neunzehnten Jahrhunderts. Bd. II, Teil I, S. 15, vgl. Nr. 1. Max von Menz folgt hier der Kunstauffassung der Nazarener, die ihm sein Münchner Lehrer Schnorr von Carolsfeld vermittelt haben dürfte. Max von Menz zeichnete sich schon in seiner Schulzeit durch künstlerisches Talent aus. Seine künstlerische Ausbildung absolvierte der Sohn eines erfolgreichen Beamten in München an der Akademie bei H. Anschütz (1802-1880), H. Heß (1798-1863) und J. Schnorr von Carolsfeld (1794-1872). Im Mittelpunkt seines Schaffens stand die Historienmalerei, biblische Themen und Szenen aus der bayerischen Geschichte, aber auch Genredarstellungen. 1872 wurde sein künstlerisches Schaffen durch eine schwere Krankheit, die die Amputation eines Fußes mit sich brachte, unterbrochen.

        The States of Central America; their geography, topograpy, climate, population

      London: Sampson Low, Son & Co., 1858. First edition. Thick 8vo, 782 pp, with 3 large folding maps, 8 lithographic plates, and numerous woodcuts throughout. The contemporary hand coloring of the lithographs make it a particular attractive copy. Squier went to Nicaragua as the Charge d'Affaires to the Republics of Central America. His inquiring mind and passion for Indian antiquities -- heretofore exercised in his study of the mound cultures of the Mississippi Valley and the Indians of New York -- was vigorous in the execution of his tasks; he eventually wrote 5 or 6 books on the Central American states, and made a return trip in 1853 to study a proposed interoceanic railroad and pursue further his archaeological investigations. Later, he was appointed as U.S. Commissioner to Peru, where he made extensive studies of Inca remains, and published an important book on them. Many of the illustrations in his books are taken from photographs he himself made. In his busy life, he was a frequent contributor to Encyclopedia Britannica and was chief editor of Frank Leslie's publishing house.Squier was one of the foremost early students of Indian mounds and archaeological remains. Through Prescott's influence, he served for a number of years in Central America and Peru as diplomat. DAB notes that "he was honored at home and abroad as one of the most distinguished Americanists of the nineteenth century, and is perhaps the best single authority on the Central America of the period." This is a fine copy, hand colored, entirely free of the foxing that often plague the book due to the large amount of lithos and woodcuts. Bound in a later 3/4 dark red morocco over marbled boards.
