Austria's castles in the early 19th century

Austrian watercolours. Album with 51 topographical watercolours, depicting views from... the Mühl dictrict in Upper Austria, from Styria and Lower Austria. Austria, c. 1820. Austria, c. 1820. Oblong 4to (200 x 255 mm). 51 watercolors in ink and opaque white (measurements c. 130 x 180-160 x 215 mm), mounted in inked border. Contemp. calf with ornamental cover borders and spine fillets.

EUR 12,000.00

Charming Biedermeier watercolor album. Apart from the numerous castles and ruins, the album also contains views of several mills, churches and landscapes in Upper and Lower Austria as well as Styria. The watercolors on bluish, yellowish and white drawing paper are tipped in within grey ink frames; two are signed with the name "Constantine". Below the frame, the watercolors have been captioned by the painter (some in French); the plates have been numbered in the top right corner by a different hand (1-53; numbers 23 and 24, which did not contain views but depicted the artist's private quarters, have been removed). 4-line calligraphic French motto on front endpaper; folded manuscript double leaf on front pastedown, containing a table of contents (by the same hand as the numbering). The series' focus is on the Mühl district in Upper Austria (37 watercolors), of which 17 show Schwertberg castle and environs, the nearby ruin of Windegg castle, and the neighboring mills. Further views show Klamm, Weinberg, Brandegg, and Ruttenstein castle. The principal Styrian views include Münichshofen castle near Weiz, the ruin of Sturmberg castle, and Herberstein. Among the seven plates from Lower Austria, those of Klamm near Schottwien, Pitten, Gutenstein, Merkenstein, and Brühl deserve special mention. - The delicate watercolors, almost all enlivened by figures an animals, and apparently executed by a talented amateur, captivate the viewer through their atmosphere: frequent sunsets alternate with scenes drenched in the warm light of the late afternoon; in other views, the almost unmodified bluish grey color of the drawing paper seems to hint at an approaching storm. - Detailed listing available upon request. {BN#16469}

A charming Victorian miniature terrestrial globe, an educational toy in its original box with a 28 joint plates showing the people of the world in native costume. It is one among a number of versions of such globes attributed to the Bauer family of German globes makers, produced for the English and Continental markets. Van der Krogt illustrates and describes a similar globe: the title is the same and "The name Vancovens In. is written at the northwest coast of America, indicating Vancouver's discoveries (end of the 18th century). The 19th century explorations of the polar regions are not recorded, so that the globe can be dated between ca. 1800 and ca. 1825" (Van der Krogt). {BN#44176}

Extremely rare example of the largest globe engraved by Malby, with lines of magnetic variation, showing "Debai" (Dubai)

[Globe - Terrestrial]. Malby & Co. Malby’s terrestrial globe. [London], Malby & Co. (engraved by Chas. Malby), 1 January 1848. [London], Malby & Co. (engraved by Chas. Malby), 1 January 1848. Diameter: 45.5 cms (18 inch), height in stand: 64.5 cm. An engraved terrestrial globe with 12 gores and 2 polar caps over a plaster-covered core, and the engraved horizon ring on the wooden stand, all coloured by a contemporary hand. In a contemporary wooden stand with 3 turned legs supporting the horizon ring, and 3 turned stretchers with a cylindrical centrepiece with a knob on the underside. Further with a contemporary brass hour circle and a slightly later iron meridian ring (and probably the axis pivots).

EUR 75,000.00

Only recorded copy of the 1848 edition (preceded only by one recorded copy of the 1846 edition) of Malby’s 18 inch (45.5 cms) terrestrial globe, the largest he engraved and much rarer than his 12 inch globe. “Debai” (Dubai) is shown on the Gulf coast, only 15 years after the al-Maktoum dynasty took charge of it in 1833. The globe seems to be intended especially for navigational use, with not only a grid of parallels and meridians (with the prime meridian through Greenwich), but also the irregular curved lines indicating the variation of magnetic from geographic north (“isogones”), at 5 degree intervals. From these one can clearly see where the magnetic poles were. Malby seems to be the first and almost the only globe maker to show them. The engraver signed the present globe “Chas. Malby” and signed the 12 inch globe of 1845 described by Dekker “C. I. Malby”. He must therefore have been Charles Isaac Malby (1816–post 1868). Thomas Malby, Charles’s brother, first set up as a globe publisher around 1839 and was trading as Malby & Co by 1841. Charles may have engraved nearly all of his globes. The earliest Malby globe known to survive is dated 1842, but his earliest recorded 18 inch globes are a pair at the Mariners’ Museum in Virginia: the celestial globe dated 1843 and the terrestrial globe dated 1846. The Austrian National Library has an 18 inch Malby terrestrial globe dated 1850, but we find no further example until 1872. The present 1848 example appears to be unique. The horizon ring has an owner’s stamp on the printed surface, nearly due east, apparently a coat of arms in a wreath, but difficult to make out. The horizon ring and globe have a dozen small cracks repaired and a few small gaps in the surface image, some repaired, but are otherwise in good condition. Extremely rare and lovely large globe, with the fascinating and unusual graphic presentation of geomagnetism. {BN#44436}

EUR 6,500.00

Hong-Kong / Panorama général: a fine, large-scale panorama embracing all of Victoria, the capital of Hong Kong, from the perspective of the harbour. The scene is centred upon the concentration of major buildings along the grand quayside of the Praya, including the City Hall, the Hongkong & Shanghai Bank Building and the Hong Kong Hotel, the six-story building featured in the centre-right of the panorama. Notably, the hotel seems to still be in a partially-completed state, as construction of the edifice was not completed until 1892, a detail which helps to date the photograph. Numerous boats can be seen plying the harbour in the foreground, evidence that Hong Kong was one of Asia's busiest ports. Victoria Peak rises above the city, and the thin white line shown ascending the mountain, above City Hall, is the famous Peak Tram. This funicular railway was completed in 1888. - "Hong-Kong / La Rade prise de Bowen Road": an engaging view looking down upon Hong Kong harbour from the perspective of Bowen Road. The line of the celebrated Peak Tram, completed in 1888, is shown running up the slope of Victoria Peak, while numerous ships ply the harbour in the background. Bowen Road was named after George Ferguson Bowen, who served as the 9th Governor of Hong Kong from 1883 to 1885. - "Hong - Kong / Anniversaire de la naissance de la Reine": this fascinating view captures the pageantry of the celebration of the birthday of Queen Victoria. Spectators are shown observing vast lines of troops as they fire an armed salute in honour of Her Majesty, while tall ships decorated with banners are moored in the harbor, in the foreground. Queen Victoria (reigned 1837-1901) personified the British Empire, and her birthday (May 24th) was celebrated annually throughout Britain's colonial possessions. Another example of the same photograph, entitled in manuscript, "Queen's Birthday Parade Hong Kong," can be found in the collections of the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art at Cornell University, Ithaca, NY (accession no. 86.140.310). - "Hong-Kong / Une Rue dans la ville Chinoise": this photograph captures an interesting street scene in Hong Kong's traditional "Chinatown", otherwise known as the Wan Chai District, located to the east of Victoria. While Victoria had a more "anglicized" appearance, befitting the centre of British colonial administration, Chinese modes of building construction, signage and ways of life prevailed in Wan Chai. {BN#45809}

EUR 2,500.00

The finest and rarest of Keller's panoramas in contemporary colour, depicting the view from Mount Rigi from Risch on Lake Zug to Kuessnacht on Lake Lucerne. Not to be confused with Keller's much more common like-titled panoramas of merely half size, published from 1820 onwards (cf. Harteveld Cat. 206, no. 123: their copy described as "splendidly coloured copy, then sold for the fourfold price of copies in simple colour"). In 1823 Keller was to publish yet another large-format panorama as part of a book with the same title, again not identical with this present view. - The title label bears the publisher note as quoted above; the view itself is captioned: "Gezeichnet auf dem Rigi-Kulm, 1814, von H. Keller, Vermehrt u. Berichtigt 1816 / gestochen von J. J. Scheurmann 1815". Two flaps (measuring 70 x 160 mm) can be folded out at the bottom, through with the view includes Arth on Lake Zug. Similarly, Mount Rossberg is also inserted as a flap, behind which the viewer may uncover Lake Aegeri and Eccehomo. Mounted on the back pastedown is a coloured engraving: "Le Mont Righi, dessiné près de Zoug" (175 x 107 mm; B. Bullinger del., F. Hegi sc.). - Minute paper defect on the horizon at far left, otherwise in perfect condition. Binding with occasional insignificant staining; altogether very clean. Insignificant bumping to edges of slipcase. Ms. ownership note by the Austrian actor Joseph Koberwein (1774-1857). The son of the important travelling actor Simon Friedrich Koberwein made his debut in 1796 at the Vienna Court Theatre and remained as a member of the ensemble until 1846. His principal roles were Ferdinand, Leicester, and Wallenstein. - Very rare; library and collection catalogues (OCLC, British Library, etc.) list only the later editions. {BN#20960}
