        Tulipes [Pl. 22]

      Paris: chez Bance et Schroth, editeurs, rue du Mail, No. 5., Beautifully hand-coloured lithograph. Printed on wove paper. In excellent condition. A tiny tear in the bottom right corner of the sheet. 20 1/8 x 15 5/8 inches. A rare lithograph of a bouquet of tulips after a painting by Pierre- Joseph Redouté. Pierre-Joseph Redouté was one of the world's great flower painters. Born into a family that had been painters for at least two generations, Redouté went to Paris in 1782 with his brother where they worked as scene painters for the Théâtre italien. Redouté painted flowers in his spare time. The search for subjects led him to the Jardin du Roi and eventually Gerard van Spaendonck who made him an assistant. While at the Jardin du Roi, Redouté came to know Charles-Louis L'Heritier, an amateur botanist and writer of independent means. He gave Redouté a full time job as an illustrator, instructing him in plant anatomy. Redouté's "functional" understanding of plants contributed greatly to the clarity of his depictions. But it was Redouté's work in stipple engraving and colour printing that was to be of the greatest importance. Stippling and the application of two or three colour inks to one plate were engraving innovations that Redouté brought to French printmaking, and which he perfected in his masterpiece Les Liliacées. Redouté's talents as a flower painter are magnificently exemplified in this stunning bouquet of tulips. Since the majority of Redouté's work was executed in stipple, this superb lithograph is a fascinating and rare print. It is not only a lovely example of early lithography but also a magnificent example of Redouté's delicate painting.

He later joined the court of the Elector of Bavaria and rose to become head of the elector's army. "Professionally, Thompson was a soldier of fortune. His first serious scientific study was to determine the optimal position of firing vents in cannon and to measure the velocity of the shot as a function of the composition of gunpowder. He used a ballistic pendulum method first introduced by Benjamin Robins. Thompson's long paper on this subject, published in 1781, won him fellowship in The Royal Society of London... It was during his investigations of cannon that he was impressed by the large amount of heat generated in cannon barrels by the explosion of gunpowder even when no ball was being fired. He was thus led to accept the vibratory theory of heat, which he championed actively all his life." [DSB]. DSB Vol. XIII, pp. 350. * A FULL LIST OF CONTENTS SENT ON REQUEST * Other contributions to this volume include Reinhold "Description of the Tyger cat of the Cape of Good Hope"; Pennant, "An Account of the Turkey"; Herschel, "Astronomical Observation"; Sematham, "Some Account of the Termites.. in Africa", &c., &c. 547, (2)pp. Preliminaries include speech by Sir Joseph Banks, and a list of members. * Full volume collates: Vol LXXI, For the Year 1781, Parts I and II [complete] bound in 1 volume, vi, [xvi], 7, [2], 6, 226, [2], vii, [229-]547, [2, errata], with 26 [of 27] engraved plates [lacking plate #26 (1 of 3 for Herschel's 'Account of a Comet')] most of which extending, some occasional spotting and plate #14 part cut along fold, plates otherwise all in good order, all good and clean, London, Royal Society, 1781-2.
