        GREAT EXPECTATIONS

      1862. Works of Charles Dickens. Household Edition. [In Two Volumes.] Illustrated from Drawings by F. O. C. Darley and John Gilbert. New York: Sheldon and Company, 1862. Original dark green cloth. Very early American Edition -- the later Sheldon issue (being volumes of the "Household Edition").~There has been much controversy over which is the first American edition -- the "Household" edition by James Gregory, or the edition by T. B. Peterson of Philadelphia. Walter Smith's new bibliography of Dickens's American editions will give the nod to Peterson's, with considerable information on this controversy. In the meantime here is the brief known history...~On November 15, 1860, Harper entered a copyright for the book, and then serialized the tale in Harper's Weekly beginning on November 24 and ending on August 3, 1861 (however, there is no book edition published by Harper in 1861, as they sold the book rights to Peterson). On August 26, barely three weeks later (and about seven weeks after the English three-decker was published), James Gregory of New York entered a two volume set for copyright (having undoubtedly set the type from the Harper serialization). Peterson of Philadelphia did not enter his one-volume edition at the LofC until November 8th, almost three months later. But: Peterson's edition was actually out in the public's hand by the month of July, while Gregory's did not actually hit the streets until September. So although Gregory's was the first edition to deposit copies at the Library of Congress, Peterson's was the first "published" -- put into the hands of the public.~The earliest Gregory volumes bear his name as publisher on the 1861 title pages; on later copies (as here -- this one is dated 1862) the imprint of Sheldon and Company replaces Gregory's. Each volume includes a frontispiece plate by F. O. C. Darley, with protective tissue. These volumes are in bright, just-about-fine condition (faint discoloration of the covers). See Podeschi (Gimbel) D38.

        The Common Crane. "Grus Cinera

      Natural History: London. Printed for the author by Taylor and Francis. 1862-1873. Original hand-coloured lithograph of Common Cranes from John Gould's "Birds of Great Britain " Volume 4; Plate 19. The impressive plate shows a large crane to the foreground, in the background a colony of cranes. Bright and good; title almost shaved imprint lost due to binding: a very large image filling the plate. John Gould (1804- 1881) Ornithologist, first trained as a taxidermist, opening a business in London in 1824. In 1827 he became the first Curator and Preserver at the Museum of the Zoological Society of London; there he oversaw the collection of birds from Himalaya which led to his first published work "A Century of Birds from the Himalaya Mountains" [ 1830-32]. Throughout his life he eventually published 41 volumes with approximately 3000 plates. covering birds of Europe, Great Britain, Asia, Australia and Papua New Guinea. The works were published in livraisons, by pre-paid subscrption, each part cost three guineas. In the early works he was aided in the creation of the plates by his wife Elizabeth Gould, Edward Lear and others. Gould died in February 1881 having completed the first 12 parts of " The Birds of New Guinea and the adjacent Papuan Islands, including many new species recently discovered in Australia. " As the title suggests he intended the work to supplement the "Birds of Australia" with the newly discovered species. The University of Glasgow, which owns a copy of Birds of Great Britain, describes John Gould as "the greatest figure in bird illustration after Audubon". Gould had already published some of the illustrations in" Birds of Europe", but "Birds of Great Britain "represents a development of his aesthetic style in which he adds illustrations of nests and young on a large scale. Gould published the book himself, producing 750 copies, Issued in London in 25 parts, to make the complete set, between 1863 and 1873, and each set contained 367 coloured lithographs. Gould undertook an ornithological tour of Scandinavia in 1856, in preparation for the work, taking with him the artist Henry Wolf. The majority of the sketches were drawn from newly killed specimens capturing the distinctiveness of each species. Gould then oversaw the process whereby his artists worked the sketches up into the finished drawings, which were lithographed by William Hart. The lithographs were hand coloured, and, in writing the introduction for the work, Gould states "every sky with its varied tints and every feather of each bird were coloured by hand; and when it is considered that nearly two hundred and eighty thousand illustrations in the present work have been so treated, it will most likely cause some astonishment to those who give the subject a thought." The work gathered critical acclaim: according to Mullens and Swann, Birds of Great Britain is "the most sumptuous and costly of British bird books", whilst Wood describes it as "a magnificent work". Isabella Tree writes that it "was seen - perhaps partly because its subject was British, as the culmination of [his] ... genius".

        Snow - Flakes and the Stories they told the Children. Illustrated by H.K. Browne.

      Sampson Low Son & Co 1862 - frontispiece, additional title-page, and 10 pages of text printed in colour (the last page with a light pencil scribble over image), pp. 46, [2], 8vo, original green cloth blocked overall in blind, a central frame and illustration on front board blocked in gilt, spine also blocked in gilt, gutta-percha partially perished with title-pages and first leaf of text consequently loose, ownership inscriptions on front flyleaf of T. Tindall Wildridge and ‘C.L. Dodgson’, with printed booklabel ‘This was the property of Lewis Carroll’ to front board, a bit rubbed, sound The inscription ‘C.L. Dodgson’, although in purple ink like Dodgson famously used, is clearly not by him, being written using a broad-nibbed pen and in handwriting completely alien to Dodgson’s personal style. It could be an early (and poor) forgery, or it could be a later addition meant to confirm a known (or believed) provenance. The ‘Property label’ on the front board, according to Lovett, was ‘perhaps.provided for buyers who wished to identify their purchases’ at the Sotheby’s 1902 sale of books purportedly from Carroll’s library and seems not to go back any further than there. This particular title is not listed by Lovett in Lewis Carroll Among His Books, or in any of the sources reproduced in Stern’s Lewis Carroll, Bibliophile.However, absence of positive evidence there is not proof that the book did not belong to Dodgson. The next owner, Thomas Tindall Wildridge, was an antiquary who is recorded as having made a group of pen-and-ink drawings of Alice and other characters, reproduced c.1910 as halfpenny postcards titled ‘A Lewis Carroll Pageant’, so his interest in owning something from Dodgson’s library would be appropriate and he may have attended the early library sales. On the other hand, he may have been duped by an unscrupulous seller who had access to the ‘Property’ labels.

        Mr. McKinlay's Explorations. Diary of Mr J. McKinlay, leader of the Burke Relief Expedition, being journal of explorations in the interior of Australia, together with chart

      Adelaide: Government printer, dated 9 October, 1862. Foolscap folio, 56 pp., four cartographic sheets, fine in recent burgundy cloth. First publication of McKinlay's exploration journal. Scarce and desirable: the first printing of the journal of John McKinlay in search of Burke and Wills, an expedition that revealed vast tracts of unknown territory in Northern Australia.In 1861 John McKinlay led the South Australian Relief Expedition in search of Burke and Wills. Although the true fate of the explorers at Cooper's Creek was revealed by Alfred Howitt and his men, it is possible that McKinlay found the remains of Charles Gray, a companion of Robert O'Hara Burke. McKinlay spoke with central desert tribesmen, who showed him the grave of a man they had killed and eaten: to this day it remains uncertain whether this was Charles Gray.Nonetheless, McKinlay and his party proceeded to explore the tropical north of Australia in the footsteps of Augustus Gregory and Ludwig Leichhardt, while making significant new discoveries. This report precedes the Melbourne published book titled McKinlay's Journals of Exploration in the Interior of Australia (Bailliere 1863) and was compiled directly from the journal presented by the explorer to the South Australian government upon his return to Adelaide in 1862. The report is notable for the four cartographic sheets, three of which comprise a detailed route map.

        Moses beschützt die Töchter des Jitro

      1862. Aquarell über Bleistift auf Papier, unten rechts monogrammiert, bezeichnet und datiert: "TG Roma 1862", 28 x 40,2 cm.. Professionell unter säurefreiem Museumspassepartout montiert.. Theodor Grosse wählte für das vorliegende Aquarell eine Szene aus dem Leben Moses', die sein tatkräftiges Eintreten für die Schwachen verdeutlicht. Nachdem Moses einen Ägypter erschlagen hatte, flüchtete er nach Midian, wo er bei der Rast an einem Brunnen sieben Frauen sah, die Wasser für ihre Tiere sammelten. Andere Hirten wollten die Frauen vertreiben und Moses, der Zeuge dieser Szene wurde, trat entschlossen dazwischen und vertrieb die Hirten. Als die Frauen wieder nach Hause zurückkehrten, erzählten sie ihrem Vater Jitro (er wird auch Reguel oder Hobab genannt) davon. Dieser lud Moses zu sich ein und gab ihm seine Tochter Zippora zur Frau. Der Vergleich von Vorzeichnung und Aquarell offenbart Grosses Intention, die Szene zu monumentalisieren. Die kompakte Figurenanordnung im Entwurf erreicht noch nicht jene Betonung Moses' als zentrale Figur. Erst die Dehnung in das starke Querformat ermöglicht es Grosse, die einzelnen Gruppen stärker voneinander abzusetzen und Moses' Befehlsgestus mehr Freiraum zu gewähren. Diese an Raffael erinnernde Geste demonstriert die Macht des Moses. Unter seiner Hand ducken sich die Hirten ängstlich zur Seite und weichen zurück. Wie eine Schutzwand baut er sich zwischen den Töchtern des Jitro und den anderen Personen auf. Dass Moses die Situation durch diese bloße Geste bereits löst, steht in starkem Kontrast zu den älteren Darstellungen des Vorfalls. Bereits Sandro Botticelli hat in einem Fresko in der Sixtinischen Kapelle Moses beim Zuschlagen mit einem Stock präsentiert und Rosso Fiorentino inszenierte 1523 einen brachialen Kampf. Im 17. Jahrhundert zeigen nahezu alle Künstler, von Nicolas Poussin bis Sebastiano Ricci oder Charles le Brun, Moses bei mehr oder minder drastischer Gewaltanwendung. Diese Verlagerung entspricht Grosses Schulung an den Werken der Nazarener. Die oft emotional aufgewühlten Schlägereien des Barock weichen einer mehr kontemplativen Einfühlung. Die Ergriffenheit des Betrachters soll nicht durch Aufregung hervorgerufen werden, sondern durch stille Versenkung. Grosses Maltechnik trägt dazu bei. Die leuchtende Farbigkeit mit der klaren Linienführung lässt die Oberfläche des Blattes wie feines Porzellan erscheinen. Die Reinheit und Makellosigkeit des Bildes korrespondiert mit der Reinheit der Empfindung. Grosse hat diese Art der Flächenerscheinung bei seinen Studien der Renaissancemeister wie Raffael und Andrea del Sarto erlernt. Die auf großflächige Kontraste abzielende Farbpalette und die klare Strukturierung konnte er anhand der italienischen Fresken ebenso verinnerlichen, wie in den Werken des Nazarenerkreises um Friedrich Overbeck, die maßgeblich zur Wiederbelebung der Freskotechnik im frühen 19. Jahrhundert beitrugen. Grosse wird den auf umfassende Verbreitung abzielenden Grundgedanken der Nazarenerfresken fortführen und sich maßgeblich der Ausführung großformatiger Wandgemälde verpflichten. Seine im Zweiten Weltkrieg zerstörten Ausmalungen der östlichen Loggia im Leipziger Museum, an deren Ausführung er von 1864 bis 1872 arbeitete, begründeten dabei seinen Ruhm. Unser Aquarell ist in seiner meisterhaften Ausführung und bildhaften Erscheinung ein wichtiges Werk aus Grosses ersten Jahren in Italien und belegt nicht nur sein zu Lebzeiten viel gerühmtes Können im Umgang mit Farben und Formen, sondern auch seinen Sinn für klar strukturierte Kompositionen, die trotz der verhaltenen Emotionalität zum Mitfühlen anregen. So erweist er sich als einer der wichtigsten Künstler der religiösen Historienmalerei in der Nachfolge der Nazarener.
