[Weigel, J.A.] Aehrenlese auf dem Felde der Kunst: Eine ausfuhrliche Beschreibung von Originalhandzeichnungen und Nadelarbeiten der Maler, Kupferstichen und in Holz geschnittenen Werke. Erst Abtheilung: Originalhandzeichnungen. Leipzig, 1836. 128p + 1 folding plate. Good hardcover. Original or contemporary boards. Spine chipped; front hinge tender. Dampstain to top margins, including the plate. Some foxing, chiefly confined to a few pages. Four old library stamps to title page, and one to first catalogue page. ** Comprises a descriptive list of hundreds of original drawings in various collections, grouped by national school and then by artist, from the 16th to 19th centuries (and a few earlier). Weigel's aim is to establish a comprehensive reference to master drawings, of the sort that exists for prints. He laments the fact that there are few catalogues of drawings, even though some artists are known only through these works. The folding plate reproduces an early iamge of Christ with symbols of the Passion. This is Part 1 (of 3, complete in itself). The 3 parts were published from 1836 to 1845; parts 2 and 3 covered prints. All parts are scarce. WorldCat gives only one location in the U.S. (Getty, parts 1 and 2 only). Bookseller Inventory # 5734

Store Description: I¿ve been selling and appraising GOOD HORSE AND ART BOOKS since 1973, first by mail as Blue Rider Books, and since 1983 in the full-time open shop that I share with H.L. Mendelsohn (whose books are also on ABE). We¿d love to have you visit the second-oldest secondhand bookshop in Cambridge, just outside Harvard Square (open Tuesday-Saturday noon to 6, or by appointment). If you can¿t make it, go to www.bledsoebooks.com for many (but by no means all) of my books. My inventory of new, used, and rare equestrian books is one of the largest in the U.S., with special depth in Paul Brown, 19th-century books, dressage, and ephemera (paper items). I love to seek out the obscure, the uncommon, and the overlooked. Harvey Mendelsohn and I also offer a room full of out-of-print scholarly titles on the fine and applied arts, especially art history, architecture and planning, book arts, gardens, 20th-century ceramics, photography, and exhibition catalogues. And you¿ll also find some children¿s books, cookbooks, titles in cultural history and philosophy, and other general books. Many of our books never make it online, so if you¿re looking for items you don¿t see here, please phone or e-mail. Then maybe you, too, like hundreds of happy customers over the years, will say, ¿You have it? YOU¿VE MADE MY DAY!¿
