Category B - The leporello emerges

Rhine panoramas without side illustrations

The following maps were produced between 1825 and 1880. The first Rhine leporello was produced by Delkeskamp in 1825 and although vignettes appeared in the margins in order to make the maps more attractive as early as 1838 the non-illustrated leporello continued to be printed and publishing well into the twentieth century.
At the time of the first leporellos there were only three "fixed" crossing places in order to cross the Rhine (apart from boat transport). These were at Cologne, Koblenz and at Mainz: the latter two each had a pontoon bridge composed of a number of boats which were held together and swung across the river using the current. The first truly fixed bridge on this stretch of the Rhine, and the only permanent bridge portrayed on the majority of the early panoramas, was built at Cologne in 1822, the so-called Deutzer Bridge.
Between 1855 and 1865 three new bridges were completed. The Hohenzollern Bridge at Köln was built between 1855 and 1859; the railway bridge at Mainz was completed in 1864 according to designs by Gerber; and the Pfaffendorferbrücke just south of Koblenz was opened in 1864 after three years´ construction. The progress of the bridges and also of the railway help to date some of those maps which were up to date.

B. 1. Delkeskamp I - Geiler   1825

This is the first edition of Delkeskamp's first Rhine panorama (see also B.4, B.8 and B.12 as well as entries C.1, C.3 and C.4). Friedrich Wilhelm Delkeskamp (1794-1872), already a well-known artist and copper engraver,  was engaged in the autumn of 1823 by the Frankfurt art dealer and publisher Friedrich Wilmans to work on a panorama of the stretch of the River Rhine between Mainz and Köln “nach der Natur” or according to nature in the same style as Elisabeth von Adlerflycht had employed. This enterprise was published in June 1825 as a copper engraving in Wilmans publishing house. Sattler 1993.

In producing this panorama Delkeskamp created the prototype of an extraordinary development which he lead over the next decades;  first for Wilmans and later in his own publishing company. Delkeskamp laid down what was to become the classic journey from Mainz to Cologne (Köln). This particular map comprised seven leaves stuck together end-to-end. The extremely handy format allowed ease of use and these panoramas continued to be offered in this format - the Leporello. The artist is given as P Geiler, about whom little is known, and was the first of the Delkeskamp Rhine panoramas.

There was an accompanying text (14 pages): Der Begleiter auf der Reise von Mainz bis Köln. Ein nöthiger Anhang zum Panorama des Rheins und seinen nächsten Umgebungen.

Cover title

Panorama des Rheins und seine nächsten Umgebungen von Mainz bis Cöln

The map folded into plain boards and was offered with the text booklet and sold in a plain card slipcase with title: Panorama des Rheins von Mainz bis Cöln Nach der Natur aufgenommen und gestochen von F W Delkeskamp. Frankfurt am Main. 1825. bei Friedrich Wilmans. If anyone has a variant title I would be grateful for details.

B.3. Audin  1828

Jean-Marie-Vincent Audin was born in Lyon in 1793 and died in 21st February 1851 (in Orange?) on the way back from a journey to Italy. He entered the church and attended a seminary before working as a priest in Grenoble and later in Lyon. He wrote many articles and spent a brief period in prison (1815). Among his works were histories of saints and leading religious figures, e.g. St. Bartholomew (1826), Luther (1839), Calvin (1841), Pope Leon X (1844) and even Henry VIII (1850). He also wrote a series of guide books (see section AA) under the pseudonym of Richard.


This would appear to be a very close copy of the Delkeskamp. Variations to Delkeskamp´s placenames include the omission of some of the small islands in the river, e.g. two are missing between Zunsdorf and Godorf below Cologne. Holzhäuser has Hocquart je as the lithographer and points out the numerous incorrect translations for French tourists at the sides of the titles (see illustration below - Courtesy of Goyert Gallery, Cologne).

Helmsauer had gained experience with Delkeskamp (see previous entry) and now collaborated with Rosenkranz. The interest shown by the Anglo-Saxon visitors is shown already in the partnership with D Walther, obviously a London retailer.

B.7. John Clark   c.1830


The Scottish painter and engraver John Heaviside Clark (c. 1771-1863) created one of the most artistic of the copies of Delkeskamp's panoramasiusing aquatint technique and obviously designed to attract the British clientele. It must be granted that Clark was one of the few to actually give Deldeskamp credit as original creator. His work is one of the most beautiful of all the Rhinpanoramas. Clark was already a reputable artist who had published a number of works on the theory of painting. (Sattler)
Samuel Leigh was a well-known printer and publisher who had already publshed a number of guide books and atlases in London.
The author´s copy has a pasted label with catalogue of Leigh´s publications on inside cover.

B.8. Delkeskamp III - Creutzbauer        1832

Engraving on steel was developed in London in 1820. The German artist and engraver Carl Ludwig Frommel introduced the technique to Germany and established a steel engraving business in Karlsruhe. It was certainly up and running by the year 1827. The preparation and the retail side of selling books manufactured using this new technique as the work of the Karlsruhe bookselling company of Wilhelm Creutzbauer. The third and final edition of Delkeskamp's original panoramas was engraved in steel at Frommel's workshop in 1832 . This edition appeared in the Wilmans publishing house in the same year but without the undated. Apparently impressions were being run off and sold until the beginning of the next decade. (Sattler)

B. 16. Hotel Disch   1880

Cover title

Single sheet folding into four sections. The cover section is an engraving of the Hotel Disch with the address in three languages (Rue de Pont, Bridge Street as well as Brücken-Straße). There are instructions in French as to how to get to the hotel. Left and right the owners names are Disch & Capellen with location below. All maps are probably pre-1880 when assets from the hotel were sold at auction. Only the very central part of the fold-out section has a relief map of the Rhine in the tradition of those in this category. An interesting piece of advertising.

 Map title

1. The inside sheet is 210 x 560 mm, and when unfolded is completely taken up with

A) Centrally, a Rhine Panorama, Rhein Panorama von Cöln nach Düsseldorf und Mainz with Düsseldorf at the top and Mainz at the bottom, 340 x 30 mm with names alongside expanding this to approx. 70 mm.

B) Flanking this left and right, two maps of the railway connections (each approx. 70 mm wide): left from Paris to Cöln, 460 mm; and right, from Cöln to Berlin (both from top to bottom), 410 mm.

C) Top and bottom are two views of Cologne Cathédral: La Cathédrale (above) and La Cathedrale achevée (below, each approx 90 x 100 mm).

The other 3 “pages” are taken up with
A) Eisenbahn-Karte von Mittel Europa
B) Die Mosel von Trier bis Coblenz (map) and
C) Plan de Cologne (all in French)
There is no evidence of a cover or clue as to original issue. Obviously produced for the French tourist market.
The cathedral was completed (with its second tower as shown in lower illustration) in 1880. The panorama, however, is older as no fixed bridges are shown (i.e. dates to pre-1840).

Size
No cover, folded size 135 x 210 mm. Fragile, thin paper.                                                       

2. A second copy of this has a different view of the hotel and the text flanking the hotel name centrally is now only Disch with (translated) late proprietor of the Cour Imperiále in Cologne (left) and Capelle  with (translated) late proprietor of the Breidenbach in Dusseldorf (right).
