        Toto meguro yuhigaoka. Twilight Hill at Meguro. Ukiyo-e

      Edo, Japan: Tsuta-ya Kichizo, 1858. Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji (Fuji Sanju-Rokkei) is the title of two series of woodblock prints by the Japanese ukiyo-e artist Ando Hiroshige, depicting Mount Fuji in differing seasons and weather conditions from a variety of different places and distances. The 1852 series are in landscape orientation; the 1858 series are in portrait orientation. The print being offered is from the 1858 series, apparently number 10 in the series.

        The Defence of Cawnpore.

      London: Longman, Brown, Green, Longmans, and Roberts, 1858 - Octavo. Original red embossed cloth, title gilt to front board, reddish-brown surface-paper endpapers, printed ads to the pastedowns. A little rubbed and with a couple of nicks, but overall very good. Folding map frontispiece with dispositions in colour, and one other folding map. First edition. "Gives a detailed account of three days of battle during which Cawnpore was defended, preventing the creation of an enemy outpost in General Havelock's rear. Author defends General Windham's actions. Includes dispatches" (Ladendorf). A long-serving artillery officer, first commissioned out of RMA, Woolwich, at the head of his class in 1836. He served in the Crimea " present with the headquarter staff at Alma, Balaklava, and Inkerman, and throughout the siege of Sevastopol, remaining in the Crimea until June 1856. He was mentioned in dispatches, and made brevet lieutenant-colonel on 12 December 1854 and CB on 5 July 1855. He received the Mejidiye (fourth class) and the Légion d'honneur (third class)" (ODNB). Following the outbreak of the Indian mutiny, Adye was sent to India as assistant adjutant-general of artillery. Arriving at Cawnpore he discovered that Sir Colin Campbell had already left to relieve Lucknow, with the Gwalior contingent advancing on Cawnpore. "He took part in the actions fought there by Major-General Charles Ash Windham and afterwards wrote The Defence of Cawnpore . He was present at the battle of 6 December, in which the Gwalior contingent was routed by Sir Colin Campbell after his return from Lucknow. His administrative duties then compelled Adye to return to Calcutta, and he saw no more fighting during the mutiny". From early 1859 Adye commanded the Madras artillery; deputy adjutant-general of artillery in India from March 1863 until 1868; "and implemented the amalgamation of the three East India Company regiments of artillery with the Royal Artillery, which required patience and tact". Following his return to England in 1866 he was successively Director of Artillery and Stores, governor of the RMA, Surveyor-General of the Ordnance, and finally Governor of Gibraltar, also serving on Wolseley's staff in Egypt.

        Recollections of the Last Days of Shelley and Byron [with an autograph letter signed by Mary Shelley]

      London: Edward Moxon,, 1858. Octavo (195 × 123 mm). Finely bound in c.1900 tan full calf, spine gilt in compartments with detailed floral tooling and two olive morocco title labels, sides bordered with a double gilt rule and fleuron corner-pieces, "M.D.S." initials gilt stamped to front board, gilt rolled board edges and turn-ins, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Autograph letter signed tipped in before the half-title. Engraved portrait frontispiece of Shelley by Clint, and three engraved plates, one showing the Villa Magni and the boat, the Don Juan, in which Shelley was wrecked, one a portrait of Trelawny by Kirkup, and the last showing Mount Parnassus. Extremities very lightly rubbed, very small dark stain to spine near tail, some faint scratches to covers, minor offsetting to half title from the residual wax seal of the envelope, otherwise internally clean, attractive and in excellent condition. The letter itself with folds from postage, with some offset marks and a small perforation, but in very good condition. First edition, with a tipped-in autograph letter signed by Mary Shelley, of this biographical memoir of Shelley and Byron by Edward Trelawny (1792-1881), the adventurer and Romantic tagalong who involved himself in the lives and deaths of both Byron and Shelley, and subsequently wrote several biographical memoirs such as this that helped to shape posterity's perception of the people involved. This copy bears, tipped-in before the half title, an autograph letter signed from Mary Shelley, addressed to Charles Ollier Esq, at 8 New Burlington St., concerning the manuscript of Trelawny's nautical memoirs which she was editing and soliciting in 1830-31 (whereby we date the letter, though the franking is not decisively readable): "My dear Sir, When you come to the last, will you be so good as to send me the last of the proofs of Mr Trelawny's book - I have been in daily expectation of seeing you - but - - - alas! Yours truly, Mrs Shelley, Thursday". Charles Ollier was Percy Bysshe Shelley's publisher, described by Trelawny himself (in a 1880 letter to Buxton Forman remembering their encounter in 1820-21) as "the only one of the tribe of bibliophiles who would publish Shelley's writings". This, unlike some of Trelawny's statements, is substantially true; excepting Alastor (1816) and any earlier works, all of Shelley's works published in England during his lifetime, from Laon and Cythna (1818) to Hellas (1822), were published by Ollier. He also published Mary and Percy's jointly-written History of a Six Weeks Tour in 1817, and had been offered Frankenstein, though he turned it down. After her husband's death in 1822, Mary was a frequent correspondent with Ollier, often trying, to no avail, to get him to publish more works, including her own novels Valperga and Lodore, or acting as agent for the works of others, including Trelawny. At this time, Mary, as well as being unpaid editor and agent to Trelawny's naval memoirs ("Adventures of a Younger Son", Mary's title, Trelawny's first book, was published not by Ollier but by Colburn and Bentley in 1831), was on the verge of a romantic association with Trelawny. In an awkward exchange of letters in the summer of 1831, Trelawny and Mary bandied uncertain suggestions and innuendoes back and forth until Mary's nerve eventually broke and she replied "My name will never be Trelawny... & Mary Shelley will never be yours." Part of the awkwardness in their relationship stemmed from their continual jostling for the ownership of Shelley's love, when alive, and for his reputation when dead, and though there had been genuine mutual fascination and affection, this eventually subsided into bitter enmity. It was Trelawny who, in this title and more so in its rewriting and retitling in 1878 as Records of Shelley, Byron and the Author, contributed to the sense of Mary as a cold, low-minded, society-obsessed curse on her angelic husband, and a leaden weight on his poetic inspiration ("the chains of lead upon its flight of fire", to misleadingly co-opt Shelley's lines at the end of Epipsychidion). Miranda Seymour, Mary's biographer, paraphrases Trelawny's vitriolic effect on Mary's reputation: "Frankenstein was the work of Shelley's brain, not hers; widowed, she had sunk back to her 'natural littleness'". Whatever one thinks of the assessment, the inclusion in this Trelawny memoir of this Mary Shelley letter (which sees Mary soliciting with dogged altruism on behalf of a delusionally ungrateful friend - the man who, in commissioning the unseaworthy boat Don Juan, had been partially responsible for her husband's death) offers an appealingly complex picture of those left behind after the early deaths of these Romantic poets.

        Signed Pen and Ink Cartoon "Hybridisation", a commentary on polluting blood lines.

      - Original pen and ink signed cartoon by the French political cartoonist "Caran D'Ache", whose real name was Emmanuel Poire (1858 - 1909). Poire was a satirist who developed "stories without words", considered a precursor to comic strips. Caran D'Ache spoofs appear to be of French Colonial Empire building during the later part of the 19th century, a time when France cloaked its acquisitions in Africa as a moral mission to lift the world up "to French standards by bringing Christianity and French culture". In 1884 the leading exponent of colonialism, Jules Ferry declared; "The higher races have a right over the lower races, they have a duty to civilize the inferior races." Full citizenship rights - assimilation - were offered, although in reality "assimilation was always receding [and] the colonial populations treated like subjects not citizens."[Wikipedia]. In this cartoon we see the results of mixing or hybridizing people of different social status and race, and of attempting to modify human and animal traits.The cartoon has four illustrations in two rows, starting at the upper left. The top row depicts three pairs of mismatched people: a young woman is fondled by an older man as she reads; a scruffy poor man drapes his arm around a man in suit and tie; and a prosperous black man drawn in racist manner is depicted smoking a cigar wraps his arm around a startled looking white man. In the bottom row is a single image in which an old nag with disheveled Pegasus-like wings runs behind the rider who runs with her on a tether, as a muscular man runs by with an angry eagle strapped to his back. 22 x 15 1/2". Drawn on tissue laid down on heavier stock, with small crescent missing at bottom edge and upper right corner, not affecting the illustration.Caran D'Ache's work appeared in Le Chronique Parisienne, Le Figaro, and Le Rire. In his later years he began a series of "Albums", booklets of cartoons devoted to current fads and social & political issues. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Lettre autographe signee.

      Hauteville House [a Guernesey], "7 juillet" [probablement 1858].. 1 p. in-8.. "Je prends l'interet le plus vif aux grandes questions indiquees par vous et vaillamment abordees dans votre interessant journal. Nous sommes en desaccord, pourtant, non sur le but, la liberte ; mais sur le moyen, le protestantisme. Je le vois en Angleterre, helas, etroit et intolerant, et profondement ennemi du progres. Tenons-nous-en a la philosophie. Une lettre est necessairement ecourtee et incomplete. Vous etes un esprit eleve. Je serai heureux s'il m'est jamais donne de causer avec vous de ces hautes questions. Croyez a ma cordialite [...]". - Lettre sans doute adressee en 1858 a l'historien Edgar Quinet qui publia cette annee-la un ouvrage a caractere autobiographique, Histoire de mes idees, dans lequel il associait notamment le protestantisme a l'idee de progres. Victor Hugo depuis 1851, denoncait au contraire le role conservateur de la religion protestante, en prenant l'exemple de Angleterre. Les deux hommes, republicains convaincus, vivaient alors en exil loin de la France imperiale.

        Die Cellularpathologie in ihrer Begrndung auf physiologische und pathologische. Berlin: A. Hirschwald, 1858

      - FIRST EDITION of Virchow's seminal and profusely illustrated Die Cellularpathologie, "one of the most important books in the history of medicine, and the foundation stone in cellular pathology" (Garrison-Morton 2299). "He set in motion the now familiar idea that the body may be regarded 'as a state in which every cell is a citizen.' Disease is a civil war, a 'conflict of citizens brought about by the action of external forces' (Singer: History of Biology). "Virchow was the first to state the now universally accepted axiom 'Omnis cellula a cellula,' 'Where a cell originates it must have been preceded by another cell, just as animals are produced only by other animals and plants by other plants' (Printing and the Mind of Man, 307). CONDITION & DETAILS: Berlin: A. Hirschwald. 8vo (8.75 x 5.5 inches; 219 x 138mm). [xvi], 440 pp., [4]. Ex-libris (Boston University); bears new endpapers with the conservator saving the BU armorial bookplate, original endpapers, card, and even the original binder's stamp (Ives & Smith). ILLUSTRATION: 144 in-text illustrations. Bound in contemporary half calf over marbled paper boards that are scuffed and rubbed a bit at the edge tips with a small area missing from the marbled paper on the rear (see photo). Tightly and very solidly bound. Occasional toning and very light foxing, all very minor. Very good condition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Atlas Geografico, Estadistico e Historico de la Republica Mexicana

      Mexico Imprenta de Jose Mariano de Lara 1858 - The First Great Scientific Atlas of All of Mexico GARCIA Y CUBAS, Antonio. Atlas Geografico, Estadistico e Historico de la Republica Mexicana. Mexico: Imprenta de Jose Mariano de Lara, 1858. First edition of the first atlas of Mexico written by a Mexican and printed in Mexico. Folio (21 3/4 x 14 3/4 inches; 553 x 370 mm.). 18, [2], [4], [2] pp. plus all thirthy-three double-page hand-colored ltihoragph maps and plates (one of the double-page spreads is comprised of two of the maps listed). Contemporary quarter brown morocco over marbled boards, spine with gilt lettering and devices. Small and old paper label on upper front cover. Small stamp on upper blank margin of title page (not offensive). Sinaloa plate browned. Some minor foxing but over all a wonderful copy of the first great scientific atlas of all of Mexico. This early lithographed atlas of Mexico includes the work of Mexican pioneer lithographers Iriarte, Decaen, and Salazar. The illustrations are signed "Muñ ozguren" and come from the lithographic shop of Iriarte & Cia., while the letterpress typography is by Lara. The atlas was created during the Golden Age of Mexican lithography (see Mathes, Mexico on Stone, pp. 17-32). The design and execution of the atlas are handsome, with the middle of each double-page spread being occupied by the map of a specific state or territory, surrounded by statistical and historical information about the region, including subjects of borderlands interest, such as Native American tribes and incursions. The large and fine general map of Mexico by Salazar is one of the finest maps of Mexico created in the nineteenth century, with a spirited Mexican eagle atop cactus at top center, and especially beautiful lithographed views on either side (Popocatepetl, Orizava, Cascada de Regla, Palenque, Mitla, Uxmal, etc.). The maps of the states that border with the United States are especially interesting for clearly delineating the changing boundaries over time. For instance, the map of Sonora shows the demarcation of the Treaty of Mesilla in 1853 (Gadsden Purchase). The map of Chihuahua shows the boundary line before and after the Gadsden Purchase. The Tamaulipas map shows the new boundary at the Rio Grande, as well as the older line of demarcation at the Nueces. The plates from Mapa Sigüenza and Códice Boturini are accompanied by the notes of José Fernando Ramírez of the Museo Nacional. Palau 98721. Phillips, Atlases, 2683. Sabin 26554.

        Der Zauberer von Rom. Roman in neun Büchern. 9 in 5 Bdn.

      Leipzig, F. A. Brockhaus, 1858 - 1861.. Zus. über 3500 S. Etwas spätere Hlnbde mit je 2 goldgeprägten Rückenschildern (leicht berieben, Vorsätze erneuert, durchgehend etwas, stellenweise auch stärker u. stark braunfleckig, 1 Lage am Falz stabilisiert).. Erste Ausgabe des nach den "Rittern vom Geiste" zweiten, "ebenso gewaltigen und poetisch noch höher stehenden" (Houben) "Romans des Nebeneinanders". Karl Gutzkow schildert in dieser "grandiosen Dichtung" (Houben) "die religiösen Zustände im (katholischen) Westen und Süden Deutschlands und in Österreich in ihrem innigen Zusammenhang mit Rom ... und (versucht) die schwierige Frage des deutschen Ultramontanismus poetisch zu lösen" (Houben). Die katholische Idee und ihre Organisation, ihre Stärke und ihre Schwächen, ihre inneren Spannungen und äußeren Machtansprüche werden von Gutzkow vor dem Hintergrund des "Kulturkampfes" zwischen Preußen und der katholischen Kirche im Rheinland, des Konkordats von Staat und "Ultramontanismus" in Österreich sowie der Auseinandersetzungen der Einigungsbewegung in Italien mit dem Kirchenstaat und dem ultramontanen Papsttum eines Pius IX behandelt. Vergangenheit und Gegenwart und die zahlreichen Schauplätze sind in dem Monumentalroman zu einem komplizierten "Nebeneinander" verschlungen, in dessen Zentrum der Mönch Bonaventura, der zum Reformator der katholischen Kirche aufsteigt, und eine Frau, die nicht zufällig nach Schlegels Emanzipationsroman Lucinde heißt und sich vom Zimmermädchen zur Gräfin in Rom emanzipiert. Zu bewundern ist die strikte Objektivität Gutzkows, mit der er, der Protestant, "frei von einseitig protestantischem Gesichtspunkt" (Houben) die katholische Kirche durchleuchtet, "die ultramontane Fata morgana in allen ihren Farbenschattierungen" (Houben) schildert und die Zeitprobleme in zahlreichen Diskusssionen der verschiedenen Parteien abhandelt. Der "Zauberer von Rom" ist nach dem Urteil Arno Schmidts die unvergleichlich beste Schilderung der katholischen Welt.- Goed. Fortführung 3/925,98; Wilpert/Gühring 62; Borst 2690; Bibliothek Arno Schmidt 200.9; Houben I,309 (der Roman wurde in Österreich verboten!); Houben, Vorwort zur 9. Auflage, Leipzig, Brockhaus, 1911.

Folio (21 3/4 x 14 3/4 inches; 553 x 370 mm.). 18, [2], [4], [2] pp. plus all thirthy-three double-page hand-colored ltihoragph maps and plates (one of the double-page spreads is comprised of two of the maps listed).Contemporary quarter brown morocco over marbled boards, spine with gilt lettering and devices. Small and old paper label on upper front cover. Small stamp on upper blank margin of title page (not offensive). Sinaloa plate browned. Some minor foxing but over all a wonderful copy of the first great scientific atlas of all of Mexico.This early lithographed atlas of Mexico includes the work of Mexican pioneer lithographers Iriarte, Decaen, and Salazar. The illustrations are signed "Mu?? ozguren" and come from the lithographic shop of Iriarte & Cia., while the letterpress typography is by Lara. The atlas was created during the Golden Age of Mexican lithography (see Mathes, Mexico on Stone, pp. 17-32). The design and execution of the atlas are handsome, with the middle of each double-page spread being occupied by the map of a specific state or territory, surrounded by statistical and historical information about the region, including subjects of borderlands interest, such as Native American tribes and incursions. The large and fine general map of Mexico by Salazar is one of the finest maps of Mexico created in the nineteenth century, with a spirited Mexican eagle atop cactus at top center, and especially beautiful lithographed views on either side (Popocatepetl, Orizava, Cascada de Regla, Palenque, Mitla, Uxmal, etc.). The maps of the states that border with the United States are especially interesting for clearly delineating the changing boundaries over time. For instance, the map of Sonora shows the demarcation of the Treaty of Mesilla in 1853 (Gadsden Purchase). The map of Chihuahua shows the boundary line before and after the Gadsden Purchase. The Tamaulipas map shows the new boundary at the Rio Grande, as well as the older line of demarcation at the Nueces. The plates from Mapa Sig¸enza and CÃ?dice Boturini are accompanied by the notes of JosÃ? Fernando RamÃ?rez of the Museo Nacional.Palau 98721. Phillips, Atlases, 2683. Sabin 26554.HBS 66945.$13,500

        Bunken Edo oezu. Kan.Tokyo, Subaraya Mohe, [Ansei 5 (1858)?]. 166 x 189 cm. Accordian folded (horizontally and vertically) between two contemporary paperboards with covered with blue paper, each embossed with 5 large decorations, woodcut title-label on front board (board size 32 x 21 cm).

      http://www.davidrumsey.com/japan/xmaps1007.html (dated "[1858]"); WorldCat (3 copies, dated "[1865]" and possibly a 4th, dated "(1864)". A large and very detailed woodcut map of Edo (since 1868 Tokyo) and surrounding areas by Mori Fusai, coloured by hand in blue, red, green and yellow. It covers an area to about 4 kilometes from the centre, including the coast of the harbour, and follows in the tradition of Kanamaru Hikogoro, who produced maps of Edo with a similar lay-out beginning in 1778. The map is printed from woodblocks on 15 sheets of Japanese (mulberry bark?) paper (each about 56×38 cm) and assembled with 5 across and 3 down to form one large folding map at a scale of about 1:9000. As assembled it measures nearly two meters in each direction. We have found no printed date on the map, but the East Asian Library of the University of California at Berkeley has what appears to be an identical map and dates it Ansei 5 (1858). With some tears along the folds, but otherwise in very good condition. The binding shows only minor wear. A magnificent large Japanese map of Edo (Tokyo), a decade before the fall of the Tokugawa shogunate.

        Signed Pen and Ink Cartoon "Hybridisation", a commentary on polluting blood lines

      . Very good condition. Original pen and ink signed cartoon by the French political cartoonist "Caran D'Ache", whose real name was Emmanuel Poire (1858 - 1909). Poire was a satirist who developed "stories without words", considered a precursor to comic strips. Caran D'Ache spoofs appear to be of French Colonial Empire building during the later part of the 19th century, a time when France cloaked its acquisitions in Africa as a moral mission to lift the world up "to French standards by bringing Christianity and French culture". In 1884 the leading exponent of colonialism, Jules Ferry declared; "The higher races have a right over the lower races, they have a duty to civilize the inferior races." Full citizenship rights - assimilation - were offered, although in reality "assimilation was always receding [and] the colonial populations treated like subjects not citizens."[Wikipedia].In this cartoon we see the results of mixing or hybridizing people of different social status and race, and of attempting to modify human and animal traits.The cartoon has four illustrations in two rows, starting at the upper left. The top row depicts three pairs of mismatched people: a young woman is fondled by an older man as she reads; a scruffy poor man drapes his arm around a man in suit and tie; and a prosperous black man drawn in racist manner is depicted smoking a cigar wraps his arm around a startled looking white man. In the bottom row is a single image in which an old nag with disheveled Pegasus-like wings runs behind the rider who runs with her on a tether, as a muscular man runs by with an angry eagle strapped to his back. 22 x 15 1/2". Drawn on tissue laid down on heavier stock, with small crescent missing at bottom edge and upper right corner, not affecting the illustration.Caran D'Ache's work appeared in Le Chronique Parisienne, Le Figaro, and Le Rire. In his later years he began a series of "Albums", booklets of cartoons devoted to current fads and social & political issues.

        The Virginians a tale of the last century

      London: Bradbury & Evans, 1858-, 1859. Two volumes, octavo, plates thoughout; original stab holes, a nice set in half morocco, marbled paper sides (different pattern on each volume). A fine set bound from the original parts. After Vanity Fair, this was Thackeray&#39;s most famous work, continuing the story of the Esmond family through the history of their American descendants, the Warringtons. The novel traces the lives of the brothers George and Harry, their upbringing in Virginia, their experiences in England, and their involvement in the American Revolution, on opposing sides. Its survey of the effects of the Revolution, and of antebellum slavery, as famously depicted in the caricature of &#39;Gumbo&#39;, indentured to Harry, means that it is regarded as a valuable primary source in American social history. When it was first published, Thackeray&#39;s mild portrait of George Washington outraged some Americans by not displaying enough epic patriotism.

        MITLA: A Narrative of Incidents and Personal Adventures on a Journey in Mexico, Guatemala, and Salvador in the Years 1853 to 1855, with Observations on the Modes of Life in Those Countries

      London: Longman, Brown, Green, Longmans, & Roberts, 1858. Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First Edition. Edited by J.S. Bell. Five chromolithographs, including one folding, with several textual woodcuts and a folding map. London: Longman, Brown, Green, Longmans, & Roberts, 1858. First edition. Tempsky (1828-68), a Prussian adventurer and talented artist, was educated at the Berlin Military Academy and served many years in the army and later as a mercenary. His wife, Emilia Bell, was born in Greytown, Nicaragua. This work is an interesting account of Tempsky&#39;s journey in Mexico, Tehuantepec, and Central America, and his attempt to portray the inhabitants "in a life-like manner." The text begins with an 1853 sea voyage aboard the French brig Independance from San Francisco to Mazatlan, Mexico. The author had spent the three previous years in California (he has been described as John Sutter&#39;s personal bodyguard). Later, Tempsky immigrated to Australia and then went on to New Zealand, where he was killed in bush fighting against the Maoris. Octavo. The period full calf binding has been expertly rebacked in matching tan calf, with five raised bands and decorative gilt stamping. An ink inscription dated 1861 appears on a prefatory blank leaf. Some dust staining to the top edge. A few minor nicks and scuff to the leather; else very good..

        Mitla. A Narrative of Incidents and Personal Adventures on a Journey in Mexico, Guatemala, and Salvador in the Years 1853 to 1855

      London: Longman, Brown, Green, Longmans, & Roberts, , 1858. With Observations on the Modes of Life in those Countries. Edited by J.S. Bell. Octavo. Contemporary calf by Bickers & Son, red morocco label, low bands with dotted helical twist, compartments gilt, double fillet panel to the boards, small rosette corner-pieces, milled gilt edge-roll, marbled edges and endpapers, blind milling to the turn-ins, marbled endpapers and edges.

Lightly rubbed, lightly browned, some foxing to the plates and offsetting from them, overall very good. First edition. Coming from a Prussian military family von Tempsky (1828&#150;1868) was destined for the army, but on leaving cadet school in Berlin he served in his father&#39;s old regiment for just 9 months before heading out to the Mosquito Coast in search of adventure among the German colonists there. "The Mosquito Kingdom had been established with British support before the arrival of the Prussian colonists, and when it came under attack from Nicaraguan forces Tempsky saw action for the first time as an officer in the local militia" (The Encyclopedia of New Zealand). Hearing of the Gold Rush in California von Tempsky set out for San Francisco, arriving in July 1850. He signally failed to make his fortune and in July 1853, "Tempsky decided to return to Bluefields through Mexico, Guatemala and San Salvador &#133; [experiencing] a number of exciting adventures on the 18 month journey. Tempsky kept a record of these events, which later formed the substance of his book, Mitla, published in London in 1858 and illustrated with his own watercolours". He later emigrated to Australia, drifting eventually to New Zealand where he died serving in the Maori War. Despite his brief time there, Tempsky established himself as "one of the most colourful characters of nineteenth century New Zealand". An attractive copy with a contemporary prize bookplate of Billericay Grammar School to the front pastedown.

A very good copy. "An effort has been made, by the use of Types very similar to those employed by Caxton, to give this reprint something of the Appearance of the Original. To effect this still further, the Types were cast expressly in Pewter, which, from its Softness, yields an Impression resembling more the Productions of the early Printers than could be obtained from harder materials. Great care has been taken to make the Text an accurate Reproduction of the Original". (Preface). Fifteenth century books on health are very rare. This is a health maintenance manual focusing on how to keep men (not women) healthy, with occasional notes on ill - health. Both parts were published anonymously and The Governayle of Helthe has been variously attributed to John de Bordeaux and also to Bartholomaeus Montagnana, the younger, the Medecyne of Ye Stomacke has been attributed to John Lydgate. Caxton's edition was not reprinted until our edition of 1858 which is beautifully printed. William Blades the editor and publisher of our edition was deeply interested in Caxton and wrote the Life and Typography of William Caxton, England's First Printer, which was published in 1861 - 1863.

        Hochgebirgslandschaft mit Gehöft in Tirol.

      . Bleistift, auf chamoisfarbenem Velin, rechts unten bezeichnet und datiert "Gehöft im Tirol 1858". 19,7:20,5 cm, an den Ecken auf Untersatz montiert. Vertikale Knickfalte links geglättet, leichter Lichtrand oben.. Elise Crola, Tochter eines Bankiers, wuchs in einem künstlerisch-musisch orientierten Elternhaus auf. Hier verkehrten neben Wissenschaftlern auch Maler und Bildhauer wie W. von Schadow (1788-1862), Chr.D. Rauch (1777-1857), C.J. Begas (1794-1854), C.W. Wach (1787-1845) und ihr Vetter E.J.F. Bendemann (1811-1889), der spätere Direktor der Dresdner Gemäldegalerie. Ihre Eltern förderten die künstlerische Begabung ihrer Tochter - auch Schadow, der sie in jungen Jahre porträtiert hatte ("Die Poesie"), empfahl ihren Eltern, das Talent ihrer Tochter zu fördern. So erhielt sie früh Zeichenunterricht durch den Porträt- und Miniaturmaler J.F. Zimmermann (tätig 1796-1838). Im Alter von 18 Jahren heiratete sie den vierzehn Jahre älteren Baron K.H.L. von Weiher; die kinderlose Ehe wurde 1836 auf Drängen ihrer Familie und gegen ihren Willen geschieden. Kurz darauf lernte sie in Berlin den Maler Georg Heinrich Crola (1804-1879) kennen, sie trafen sich wieder in Ilsenburg, wo sie sich bevorzugt aufhielt, und heirateten 1840. Gemeinsam entschied man, in Ilsenburg sesshaft zu werden und erwarb schließlich 1847 ein großes Haus. Obwohl sie fünf Kinder gebar, unternahm sie gemeinsam mit ihrem Mann nicht nur zahlreiche Fahrten nach Berlin, Dresden und auf die Insel Rügen, sondern auch nach Dänemark, Schweden und in die Alpen. Zudem führten sie in Ilsenburg ein reges gesellschaftliches Leben. Zu ihren Künstlerfreunden zählten u.a. P. von Cornelius (1783-1867), L. Richter (1803-1884) und W. von Kügelgen (1802-1867). Elise zeigte zudem ein ausgeprägtes soziales Engagement und wurde zur Wohltäterin der Alten und Armen. Nicht näher zu spezifizierende Beschwerden zwangen sie jedoch zu Reisen, z.B. eine vermutlich anderthalbjährigere Reise gemeinsam mit ihrem Mann 1854 in die Schweiz. Auch zwei längere Aufenthalte in Italien zwecks Erholung sind zu belegen. Ihr künstlerisches Schaffen, sie arbeitete meist mit dem Bleistift, selten in Aquarell, wird von figürlichen Themen, Porträts, Tierdarstellungen, Veduten und Landschaften bestimmt. Daneben betätigte sie sich bildhauerisch (Porträts). Später bemalte sie auch Porzellane und Gebrauchsgegenstände. Im Hüttenmuseum Ilsenburg wurde Ende der 1990er Jahre eine Crola-Stube eingerichtet.
