        Sturmgepeitschte Landschaft, 1867

      1867. Aquarell auf Papier, unten links signiert: "AReinhardt" und unten rechts datiert: "im April 1867", 25,1 x 35,3 cm. Auch wenn August Reinhardt seine Ausbildung zum Maler in Leipzig bei den beiden nazarenisch geprägten Malern Gustav Jäger (1808-1871) und Bernhard Neher (1806-1886) und später in Weimar bei Friedrich Preller d.Ä. (1804-1875) absolvierte, orientiert sich das vorliegende Blatt eher an den Werken der späten Ludwig Richter-Schule. Malweise und Bildgestaltung lassen an Victor Paul Mohn oder Albert Venus denken. Dieser Kreis wird Reinhardt nicht fremd gewesen sein, hatte er doch während seines Rom-Aufenthaltes 1852 bis 1854 Kontakt zu Heinrich Franz-Dreber, dem Lieblingsschüler Richters. Von ihm wird Reinhardt auch die Lockerung des Strichs erlernt haben, denn Dreber hatte zu jener Zeit die scharfe Feder Richters bereits gegen den weichen, malerischen Kohlestift getauscht, was dann auch Arnold Böcklin stark beeinflussen sollte. In der farblichen Durcharbeitung unseres Aquarells setzt Reinhart gezielt auf das Verlaufen und Übereinanderschichten der Farben, um nuancierte Abstufungen zu erreichen. Dies ergibt ein variationsreiches Farbenspiel, das nahezu vollständig auf die konturgebende Linie verzichtet. Die dürren, windgepeitschten Äste sorgen hierbei für einen spannenden Kontrast. So gelingt Reinhardt eine intensive Wiedergabe des aufziehenden Gewitters.

        Petroleum. (Correspondence, &c., Respecting Existence of, in New South Wales.)

      - Sydney, Govt Printer 1867. Foolscap folio sewn as issued (a bit used); 22pp, litho map & 2 plates, illustrations through the text. The first publication of any note on petroleum in Australia, or at least the possibility of it, and necessary investigations, results of examinations, and so on. The search seems to have been kicked off in 1866 by William Fane de Salis sending out a copy of Lesley's 1865 paper on the Kentucky petroleum basin, 'the only paper as yet published giving any reliable scientific account of the strata' in the hopes that comparative work could be done. That paper is reprinted here, from the copy kindly given by Murchison. What is not in this paper but is in the columns of The Empire is that the Minister for Lands ignored the offer of de Salis and that a Lands Department clerk responded 'the Minister for Lands does not consider it advisable to republish Mr Lesley's pamphlet as proposed by you'. Neither would the Lands Department, 'this incubus'. release Lesley's paper for The Empire to print, prompting the outraged columnist of The Empire to mutter darkly about the 'little games played some time ago in the matter of certain mineral lands at Illawarra'. 'Is there a disinterested and intelligent man in the colony who does not believe in his heart that the blowing of the Lands Office into perdition, with all its accumulated stores of red tape, useless maps, and sickening arrears of correspondence, would be one of the best things that could happen for the welfare of the community?' All this is not quite true, the correspondence in this paper tells a slightly different story but still, in all this is an education in the power of print, most obvious in the ability of the press to push along a recalcitrant bureaucracy but more interesting is the potency held by what was considered the sole copy of an otherwise unobtainable pamphlet. Lesley's paper itself is rare, certainly it was missed by Swanson's bibliography of oil and gas. It's almost unnecessary to add that this Australian paper also doesn't appear.

        An Examination of Sir William Hamilton's Philosophy, and of the Principal Philosophical Questions Discussed in His Writings

      London - Longmans, Green, Reader and Dyer, 1867. London - Longmans, Green, Reader and Dyer, 1867 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Renowned philosopher John Stuart Mill's influential work examining a respected metaphysician. Third Edition. Publisher's catalogue to the rear. John Stuart Mill (20 May 1806 8 May 1873) was a British philosopher, political economist and civil servant. He was also an influential contributor to social theory, political theory, and political economy. He has been called the most influential English-speaking philosopher of the nineteenth century. Mill's conception of liberty justified the freedom of the individual in opposition to unlimited state control. He was a proponent of utilitarianism, an ethical theory developed by Jeremy Bentham. Hoping to remedy the problems found in an inductive approach to science, such as confirmation bias, he clearly set forth the premises of falsification as the key component in the scientific method. Mill was also a Member of Parliament and an important figure in liberal political philosophy. Sir William Hamilton, 9th Baronet (8 March 1788 6 May 1856) was a Scottish metaphysician. Two visits to Germany in 1817 and 1820 led to William's taking up the study of German and later on that of contemporary German philosophy, which was almost entirely neglected in British universities. In 1829 his career of authorship began with the appearance of the well-known essay on the Philosophy of the Unconditioned, the development of the principle that for the human finite mind there can be no knowledge of the Infinite. Condition: Smartly rebound in marbled paper boards with a buckram spine and leather spine label. Externally very good, just a little shelfwear and one or two marks. Internally, firmly bound. Bright and clean throughout. Overall: NEAR FINE.

        Hetch Hetchy Flora: A Collection of Wildflowers Painted on May 22, 2013

      Santa Cruz, CA:: Peter & Donna Thomas,, 2014. First Edition. Hardcover. New. Donna Thomas. LIMITED EDITION of 35 copies, this is number 5. Accordion Fold Folio. [18] pp. 9 watercolor paintings of wildflowers, 1 watercolor painting of Hetch Hetchy Reservoir from O&#39;Shaughnessy Dam, 1 watercolor map, five ornamental pages of handwritten and rubricated text; text clean, unmarked. Bound between blue morocco leather boards, front and back covers have wooden replicas of a plant press used in the early twentieth century by botanist Willis Jepson, water color front cover label; binding square and tight. Housed in a two-toned cloth covered clamshell box. Fine. This book was inspired by the work of Willis Linn Jepson (1867-1946), California&#39;s most distinguished botanist of the early twentieth century. Jepson&#39;s life-long interest in botany began in childhood; he graduated from the University of California in 1889, and received a PhD from the same institution in 1899, becoming professor emeritus at UC Berkeley in 1937. When Jepson was 25 years old in 1892, he was a founding member of the Sierra Club. Among his books is A Manual of the Flowering Plants of California (1925). Jepson collected plant specimens in the meadows of the Hetch Hetch Valley. Donna Thomas painted some of these same flowers and more on May 22, 2013 beside Hetch Hetchy Reservoir. Donna Thomas&#39;s original art work and calligraphed text were reproduced by digital printing processes onto Peter Thomas&#39;s handmade paper. These pages were then sewn onto larger sheets of loft dried granite-like paper Peter made for the book. The binding design is based on the structure of Jepson&#39;s plant press.

        Poems and Letters of Thomas Gray

      London - Chiswick Press, 1867. London - Chiswick Press, 1867 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A beautifuledition of Gray&#39;s poems and letters with monochrome tipped-in photographs. With amonochrome portrait tipped-in to frontispiece, a decorative title page, decorative head and tail pieces and capitals. A presentation copy for Eton College for 1870 with presentation page with ink inscription bound in to front. Gray was educated at Eton College where his uncle was one of the masters. He recalled his schooldays as a time of great happiness, as is evident in his Ode on a Distant Prospect of Eton College. He made three close friends at Eton: Horace Walpole, son of Prime Minister Robert Walpole, Thomas Ashton, and Richard West. The four prided themselves on their sense of style, their sense of humour, and their appreciation of beauty. With a biographical introduction by his friend Horace Walpole and with notes following both the poems and the letters. Thomas Gray (26 December 1716 - 30 July 1771) was a poet, letter-writer, classical scholar and professor at Cambridge University. Gray began seriously writing poems in 1742, mainly after his close friend Richard West died. Gray spent most of his life as a scholar in Cambridge, and only later in his life did he begin travelling again. Although he was one of the least productive poets (his collected works published during his lifetime amount to fewer than 1,000 lines), he is regarded as the foremost English-language poet of the mid-18th century. In 1757, he was offered the post of Poet Laureate, which he refused. Condition: In a half calf binding with marbled paper covered boards. Externally, smart with only minor shelfwear. Internally, firmly bound. Bright with only the odd handling mark and some spotting to plates and marks to some pages. Overall: NEAR FINE.

        The Pictorial Edition of the Works of Shakspere

      London - George Routledge and Sons, 1867. London - George Routledge and Sons, 1867 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. The pictorial edition of Shakespeare&#39;s works, edited and with notes by Charles Knight. The second, revised edition. Containing his Histories (in two volumes), his Tragedies (in two volumes), his Comedies (in two volumes), his &#39;doubtful plays&#39; (including plays which may or may not have been written by Shakespeare), and Knight&#39;s biography of Shakespeare (the third edition. With hundred of illustrations in the text. Throughout his career, Knight had always been an author as well as editor and publisher. However, his first major project as an author took shape in 1837, when he resolved to produce a pictorial edition of Shakespeare&#39;s works. He started searching for authentic visual materials and began a critical reading of the texts. His edition was based substantiallyindeed, too substantiallyon the first folio edition, although he made comparisons with other quartos and, in some cases, with originals in the British Museum. His background reading led to a deep interest in Shakespeare&#39;s life and the edition, published between 1838 and 1841 (he published six later editions of the works of Shakespeare), was prefaced with a one-volume biography. Knight succeeded in contextualizing Shakespeare&#39;s life as no biographer except Nathan Drake had done, and in dismissing a couple of the more absurd legends surrounding the playwright&#39;s early life. But he was prone to speculationeven suggesting that Shakespeare had visited Italy and Scotlandand all too dependent on J. P. Collier&#39;s forgeries, the traces of which were visible even in the last revised edition. (DNB)Complete in eight volumes. Condition: In cloth bindings with gilt detailing. Externally quite smart, though with some rubbing to the extremities and some marks. Some slight loss to the backstrips of three of the volumes. One joint starting. Splitting to cloth on backstrip of volume I of the Tragedies. Internally, generally firmly bound. Ink signatures of David Gouldto illustrated half-titles.

        3 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Ghazir, 1867-1868.. Zus. 6 S., 4°.. Der italienische Missionar Louis Canuti war u.a. einer der Mitbegründer und später Rektor des von Jesuiten gegründeten Priesterseminars im libanesischen Ghazir, in welchem später u.a. auch der maronitische Erzbischof und Patriarch Elias Peter Hoayek unterrichtet wurde. Später war Canuti auch Superior in Zahle, wo er 1891 verstarb (vgl. ausführlich: O'Neill, Charles E. Diccionario historico de la Compania de Jesus I, 640). - 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. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. -

        The Union Pacific Railroad from Omaha, Nebraska Across the Continent, Making, with its Connections, an Unbroken Line from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean. Charted by the United States. Its Construction, Resources, Earnings and Prospects.

      New York: : Offices, 1867. Pamphlet, 8vo, original printed wrappers, colored folding map (8 1/2" x 23 1/2"), 16 pp. Some minor chips at corners and extremities, pencil notation on top of the front wrapper, normal aging; otherwise very good. This pamphlet relates to a bond offering the company was issuing to raise capital. Management claims that the company has favorable prospects, and the mortgage bonds being offered are a secure and profitable investment. Railroad bonds were a popular investment during the second half of the 19th century, which helped prompt Henry Varnum Poor to publish his "History of Railroads and Canals in the United States" in 1860. The work enabled investors to see comprehensive financial information on just about all railroad companies. This pamphlet includes typical financial data about the company, and a folding "Map of the Union Pacific Railroad and its Connections." The map is in wonderful condition.

Rare premiere edition parisienne, sous ce nouveau titre, de 'Les mariages de la Creole', d'abord publie en Belgique en 1866 et interdit en France jusqu'en 1882. Le scandale cause par sa publication contraignit Marie Rattazzi a l'exil. Marie Letizia Bonaparte-Wyse (1834-1902), femme de lettres, poetesse et journaliste, fille de la princesse Laetitia Bonaparte, epousa en secondes noces Urbano Rattazzi, premier ministre d'Italie. "Ouvrage rare et peu connu (...), violent pamphlet contre l'une des personnalites les plus en vue du Second Empire" (Gay, I, 556). Drujon indique que la famille visee etait celle des Schneider, particulierement le fondateur de la dynastie, Eugene Schneider, president du Corps legislatif de 1867 a 1870. Au cours de son recit, la narratrice decrit le sort impitoyable des esclaves de la plantation de l'ile de Bourbon (La Reunion) et milite pour leur emancipation. Merimee dans 'Lettre a une inconnue' eut ce commentaire a propos de ce livre : "Livre abominable mais ou il y a une sorte de talent". (Voir Drujon, 'Livres condamnes', p. 242 et 'Livres a clef', 579.

        Autographed Letter Signed soliciting witnesses for Andrew Johnson's impeachment trial

      Washington: , 1867 Washington, 1867. unbound. Exceedingly rare and historically important two-page letter, 10 x 8 inches, Washington, January 22, 1867. Written on lined paper with "House Reps (Confidential)" at the top. In this correspondence, Ashley writes to W.G. Brownlow, the Governor of Tennessee, soliciting witnesses who will testify against President Andrew Johnson at his impeachment trial. In part: "...give me the names at once of all witnesses who can sustain any of the charges preferred against the President...let this be done promptly...If the Union men are (earnest) let them come forward with the facts...I hope your legislature will promptly enfranchise the loyal men of color and this same Tennessee from the fate of Maryland..." Several folds with light browning and foxing; small tear along one of the folds. Very good(-) condition. Ashley was the democratic congressman and abolitionist who supervised the underground railroad and who drew the bill abolishing slavery, the first proposition to amend the constitution. Through his hatred for Republican Andrew Johnson, Ashley solicited charges and then introduced the Articles of Impeachment in 1867.

      Paris: Neuhaus, Lith., 1867.. Paris: Neuhaus, Lith., 1867.. Double-spread decorated lithographed title and twenty lithographed line renderings. Folio (50 x 33.5 cm). Contemporary half red morocco and marbled boards, t.e.g. The pictorial title-spread lithographed on cream stock; the renderings are printed on gray stock. Trace of foxing to endleaves, toe of spine and edges rubbed, otherwise very good. First and evidently sole edition of this production showcasing Tronquois&#39; works. Apart from the several plates of detail work, the full scale renderings here are of the main or out-buildings of Château de Bethmont; the Orangerie Observatoir et Sallede Bains (a Villers sur Marne); Villa à St. Greaien; Batiment de Communs à Marnes; Château de la Chaumette; Chateau de Bethmont, and a pigeon house at St. Arnoult. The format suggests this production may have been undertaken as a promotional for Tronquois&#39; services. Stepping across the channel, he was commissioned to design the Chateau Impney in Droitwich, for which he completed plans in 1869, and this production could conceivably have some relationship to lobbying for that commission. Little information about Tronquois seems to be accessible, except for his identification with specific buildings. A scarce work: OCLC/Worldcat locates three copies in France, a copy at Columbia, and a copy at the V&A; a sixth copy is noted under a separate entry at ETH-Bibliothek Zurich and is curiously assigned a Baudry imprint, but other details are sketchy. OCLC: 39252547.

Embacher 223-224; Henze III, 691. - Seltene deutsche Erstausgabe. - Palgrave reiste 1862 als verkleideter syrischer Arzt, ohne Instrumente u. Kompaß, ins Innere Arabiens. Nach heutigen Erkenntnissen dürfte er von Ma'an aus nach dem Wadi Sirhan im Süden gezogen sein, dort von der Oasengruppe Djuf aus die Nefud nach Hail am Dschebel Schammar erreicht haben. Er soll monatelang in der Hauptstadt Er-Riad gewohnt haben und sogar bis an den Persischen Golf gekommen, von Oman nach Maskat gesegelt und dort im März 1863 eingetroffen sein. Demnach hätte er Arabien von NW nach SO durchmessen (vgl. Henze). - Die grenzkolorierte Karte von Arabien im Format 36,7 x 47cm zeigt die arabische Halbinsel mit nahezu allen zu dieser Zeit bekannten geographischen Details ( Oman, Katar, Jemen etc.)., Titelblatt und Seite 1 gestempelt. Frontispiz mit leichtem Stempelabklatsch. Vereinzelt minimal fleckig, insgesamt etwas gebräunt. - Gutes Exemplar dieses seltenen Titels.
