Scheidler, Karl Hermann
Portrait of Karl Hermann Scheidler

Los 4095

[*] Photographer unknown. Portrait of Karl Hermann Scheidler. Circa 1850. Finely hand-painted salt print. 12 x 10 cm. Sandwich-mounted in original oval gilt-framed mat (17,7 x 14,8 cm).

Karl Hermann Scheidler ist zusammen mit Karl Otto Horn (1794-1879) und Heinrich Herrmann Riemann (1793-1872) einer der Gründerväter der Urburschenschaft. Die Gründungsversammlung fand statt am 12. Juni 1815 im Gasthaus „Grüne Tanne“ in Wenigenjena. Viele der Gründungsmitglieder kannten sich noch aus den Befreiungskriegen von 1813, wo sie in Lützows Freikorps gekämpft hatten. Die schwarze Uniform dieses Freikorps (rote Aufschläge, gold. Knöpfe), war legendär und wurde noch voller Stolz von etlichen Burschenschaftlern getragen. Schwarz, Rot, Gold wählte man schließlich für die Fahne der Urburschenschaft. Sie galt fortan als das Symbol für die deutsche Einheit.
Unser Foto zeigt Karl Hermann Scheidler mit Schildmütze u. Kokarde, wie sie u.a. auch in den Freikorps getragen wurde. Auch der uniformähnliche Rock, mit den goldenen Knöpfen mag noch daran erinnern. Scheidler war ab 1826 Prof. für Philosophie und 1842/43 Prorektor der Universität Jena.
Together with Karl Otto Horn and Heinrich Herrmann Riemann, Karl Hermann Scheidler was one of the founding fathers of the German student league in 1815. Like many other students from this time, Scheidler was a former participant in the German Campaign of 1813 against Napoleon. The volunteers' of 1813 uniform colors black, red and gold was adopted in the flag of the student league. – A strong print in excellent condition.

Trémaux, Pierre
Plates from "Voyage au Soudan Oriental et dans ...

Los 4100

Fourteen plates from the publication "Voyage au Soudan Oriental et dans l'Afrique Septentrionale exécutés de 1847 a 1854. Atlas de Vues pittoresques, Scènes de moeurs, Types de végetation remarquables" Paris, Borrani, (1852 ff.). 8 salt prints from calotype negatives (circa 25,5 x 20 cm) and 6 lithographic plates after photographs on plates (time-stained in edges, foxing and soiling in margins), 34 x 50 cm.

The salt prints in this group are among the earliest photographic images made in Africa. The complicated process and the handling of various chemicals in the particular conditions of Africa presented a major challenge in 1847. It is almost a miracle that Trémaux managed to produce these calotypes. Between 1852 - 1854 Blanquart-Evrard produced salt prints for this publication based on Trémaux's calotypes. The plates with salt prints include: "Jeune Femme Nouba" (plate 36), "Fille du Da-Four" (plate 38), "Nubien et Égyptien" (plate 44), "Laveuse Égyptienne" (plate 46), "Femmes Égyptiennes" (plate 47), "Désert de l'Isthme de Suez" (plate 50), "Débris de Forêt Pétrifiée" (plate 52) and "Vue pittoresque a Tunis" (plate 56). The lithograph plates include: "Esclaves Schelouk et Dinka" (plate 37), "Esclaves du Soudan occidental" (plate 41), "Hommes du Sennar" (plate 42), "Femme du Sennar et du Dar-Four" (plate 40), "Femme Gallah et sa fille née d'un Blanc" (plate 43) and "Femme du Sennar" (plate 39). – Salt prints with some contemporary retouched spots, landscapes slightly faded, otherwise in very good condition and several salt prints with strong tones.
