ROUSE, James and Elizabeth.

Rouse’s Scraps of Sussex. [London] Fulham, drawn and published by James Rouse, drawn and engraved by Elizabeth Rouse, [1817-1825].

An uncommon set of charming topographical aquatint views. James Rouse (1773-1840) worked together with his wife, Elizabeth; on one sheet he calls himself a ‘drawing master’. The views show landscapes but delight more often in capturing rural life, cottages, small villages, churches, ruins, abbeys, roman pavements, etc, and are all populated with figures. There is an early view of the Brighton Pavilion and two views of the Brighton Royal Stables. There are views of the many castle, such as Arundel Castle (several views), Hurstmonceaux Castle, Pevensey Castle, Knap Castle, Hasting Castle (several views), Goring Castle, Bodiam Castle (2), etc.; and there are several country house depicted, such as Findon Place (seat of Mrs. Richardson), Cowdray House (2), Brambletye House, Earl of Ashburnham’s House, and Crowhurst Park.

PFYFFER VON WYHER, Ludwig.

Panorama oder Zirkel-Aussicht vom Rigi Berg. Guide des voyageurs sur le mont Righi.

Fine panorama of the 360 degree view from the Rigi Mountain in Switzerland. The panorama map also has 4 individual views engraved in the corners: view of the mountain from the valley; view of the cottage at the highest point, view from a higher mountain down to the Rigi mountain; and larger scale map. This is a fine survival from the time mountaineering was in its infancy. Twenty years later Turner climbed the mountain and painted his series of fine watercolours (Blue Rigi, Dark Rigi and Red Rigi; which were sold some years ago breaking auction records). Mark Twain visited in 1878 and wrote extensively about the Rigi Mountain.
