        The Blue Passion Flower

      London 1800 - Dr. Robert John Thornton (1768-1837) hand-colored engraving 22.25" x 17.5", The Blue Passion Flower, is from his book titled The Temple of Flora, or Garden of Nature, Picturesque Botanical Plates of the new Illustration of the Sexual System of Linnaeus. Thornton began to indulge his lifelong love for botany in 1799. Determined to surpass the Germans in scholarship and the French in printing artistry, he planned a book of philosophic and literary distinction, illustrated by some of the best painters working in Britain. Within the book there are five frontispieces, portraits and allegorical compositions with thirty-two plates of flowers. Thornton made up each set with twenty-nine or thirty-two in varied arrangements. The lengthy text was primarily written by Thornton himself, where artists were commissioned to design and paint the images. The majority of designs were done by Peter Henderson and Philip Reinagle. The intaglio plates - a varied combination of mezzotint, aquatint, line and stipple engraving, finished with watercolor -were executed by Bartolozzi and other English masters. The title notwithstanding, few of the plates are of scientific interest. It is the forceful stylization of flowers, together with their historical, allegorical and/or fanciful backgrounds (prescribed by Thornton) that place the Temple of Flora among the greatest botanical books of all time. Dr. Thornton, who gave his life and his fortune to this work, created one of England's monuments to Romantic idealism. With only slight foxing and staining in the margin, this piece is in good condition richly colored with fine detailing and shading.

        Relation Du Voyage a La Recherche De La Perouse, fait par Ordre de L'Assemblee Constituante, Pendant les Annee 1791, 1792, et pendant la 1Ëre, et la 2de annÈe de la RÈpublique FranÁoise

      chez H.J. Jansen, imprimeur-libraire, rue des PËres, No. 1195, F.G.,, A Paris, 1800 - The search for La Perouse First edition, three volumes (comprising folio atlas volume and two volumes text, 4to). Text: 4to (298 by 225mm), xvi, 442pp.; 113, [three, errata and two blank]. Atlas: Folio (533 by 350mm), engraved title (Atlas pour servir ?? la relation du voyage ?? la recherche de La PÈrouse , Chez F. Schoell, Libraire, Rue des FossÈs St. Germain l'Auxerrois, No. 29. 1811), containing 44 charts and engraved plates, original boards, edges uncut as issued, preserved in blue cloth solander boxes. The first edition of this extensive account with splendid and important illustrations of birds, plants, native peoples, and artefacts by the naturalist and surgeon Jacques Julien Houton de LabillardiËre (17551834), who accompanied the search for the famous French navy officer and explorer Jean-FranÁois de Galaup, Comte de la PÈrouse (17411788?), whose expedition had vanished in Oceanea after having left Botany Bay in January 1788. The rescue expedition was sent out under Rear Admiral Joseph Bruni d'Entrecasteaux and Jean-Michel Huon de Kermadec. On 25 September 1791 the ship left Brest and followed La PÈrouse's proposed course around the Cape of Good Hope to Tasmania, via the islands northwest of Australia, while at the same time making scientific and geographic discoveries. In May 1793 the expedition arrived at the island of Vanikoro in the Santa Cruz archipelago. D'Entrecasteaux thought that he saw smoke signals from several elevated areas on the island, but was unable to investigate and forced to leave due to the dangerous reefs surrounding the island. The expedition twice circumnavigated Australia, but was beset by difficulty throughout. D'Entrecasteaux died in Batavia, and news of the French Revolution fragmented the crew and ended the expedition. The papers of the voyage fell into British hands but were returned under a flag of truce in 1796; LabillardiËre was the first to publish his account. Although the expedition was not successful in finding traces of La PÈrouse, it made several important contributions to geographical knowledge, and the investigations of the naturalists were of special value (Ferguson). Of particular cartographic interest were the surveys of the coasts of Tasmania, Tonga, New Caledonia, the northern coast of New Guinea, and the south-western coast of Australia, and the atlas contains important views of these areas by the artist Piron. Also of interest are the 14 botanical plates engraved by RedoutÈ and the first printed depiction of a Black Swan. The vocabularies of the languages spoken at Malay, the Friendly Islands, New Caledonia, and Waygiou, printed in the Appendix, add much to the study of linguistics, and LabillardiËre's account of the Tongans is among the best contributions to the ethnology of that people.

        Icones Plantarum Japonicarum, quas in insulis Japonicis annis 1775 et 1776 collegit et descripsit.

      - Uppsala, J.F. Edman, 1800-1805. Parts II-V. Folio (430 x 275mm). With 39 (of 40) engraved plates. Original printed wrappers. First edition of Thunberg's rare sequel and counterpart to his 'Flora Japonica' (1784). The copy lacks the first part published in 1794 and plate 'Polypodium hastatum' in part III. We have added a complete copy of the Japanese reprint of 1934, sothat the work can be made complete. A complete copy has 5 parts with 50 plates.This work contains some of the first Western illustrations of Japanese species, and is a landmark work, along with the 'Flora', for the Linnaean botany of Japan. Thunberg visited Japan disguised as a Dutchman. He was confined to the Dutch trading post built on a tiny artificial island, and was reduced to examining the forage plants brought from the mainland to feed the domestic animals. He was able to make only limited excursions to the mainland, but nonetheless managed to assemble a remarkable accurate picture of the Japanese flora. The 'Icones' illustrates 'inter alia' several Japanese species of 'Acer', including the highly variable 'Acer palmarum', here illustrated for the first time. This copy contains an unrecorded four-page address, in French, by Thunberg to the St. Petersburg Academy of Sciences thanking them for making him a member. It is inserted in the fourth part. Even incomplete copies are very rare. Some wrappers worn, plates in very fine impressions and uncut.Nissen BBI, 1960; Stafleu & Cowan 14364. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The Night-Blowing Cereus

      London 1800 - The most strikingly beautiful flower plates ever to be printed in England. "The plant shown in this picture [ Selenicereus grandiflorus (L.) Britton & Rose]. is also known as the Moon Cactus, from the moon-like appearance of the fully open flower. Thornton also says that. it was sometimes called the `Torch Thistle' as it `exhibits to the observer a figure equally grotesque as terrific, with flowers possessing actually the blazing appearance of a torch.' The plant is a native of Jamaica and Cuba. This picture is one of the most arresting in the collection. The plant itself is of interest, not only for its large and beautiful flowers, but as a representative of those which, growing in a hot and dry environment, open their flowers at night for pollination by night-flying insects, pollinators being scarce in such climates during the heat of the day. This has a curious effect where public botanic gardens are concerned, since these are shut at night to visitors, who thus never see the plant in full bloom." (Ronald King. The Temple of Flora by Robert Thornton . 1981, p.74). Thornton's Temple of Flora is the greatest English colour-plate flower book. ".[Thornton] inherited a competent fortune and trained as a doctor. He appears to have had considerable success in practice and was appointed both physician to the Marylebone Dispensary and lecturer in medical botany at Guy's and St. Thomas's hospitals. But quite early in his career he embarked on his. great work. What Redouté produced under the patronage of L'Héritier, Marie Antoinette, the Empress Josephine, Charles X and the Duchesse de Berry, Thornton set out to do alone. Numerous important artists were engaged. twenty-eight paintings of flowers commissioned from Abraham Pether, known as `Moonlight Pether', Philip Reinagle, . Sydenham Edwards, and Peter Henderson. The result. involved Thornton in desperate financial straits. In an attempt to extricate himself he organized the Royal Botanic Lottery, under the patronage of the Prince Regent. it is easy to raise one's eyebrows at Thornton's unworldly and injudicious approach to publishing. But he produced. one of the loveliest books in the world" (Alan Thomas Great Books and Book Collecting , pp.142-144) "There are two quite different plates of this painting, both engraved by Pether and both used at the same time, which I shall call A and B. The principal differences are as follows: A. The flourish of the T of The in the title cuts through the ht of Moonlight in the left hand corner. The flourish of the N of Night has a loop. The minute hand of the clock covers the dot between XII and I, while the clock has no band in which the hour figures are placed. There is a dark spot in the centre of the Cereus. The plate is slightly different in size of engraved surface from B and the length of the title is 9 ¾ inches. B. The flourish of the T of The does not touch the word Moonlight. The flourish of the N in Night has no loop. The dot between XII and I is visible and the clock has a band for the hour figures. The centre of the Cereus has no dark spot. The length of the title is 8 ½ inches. In the second state of A there is added mezzotint on the petals of the bloom and the spines on the stem of the Cereus. The clock face is darker and ripples in the water are wavy and not straight as before. In the second state of B, a number of etched lines are added to the plate strengthening the foliage of the trees behind the flower, the outer petals of the blossom, the bank above the water and the trees on the left. Both plates are very fine." (Handasyde Buchanan. Thornton's Temple of Flora , 1951, p.17). This example is the second state of plate B. Hand-coloured and colour-printed mezzotint engraving by Dunkerton. Sheet size: 21 7/8 x 16 7/8 inches.

        Rare Handwritten John Nicholson Document Concerning War Debts

      Nicholson was a Revolutionary-era Pennsylvania state official. He partnered with Robert Morris in western land speculation that bankrupted both. He was sent to debtor's prison in 1800 and died there shortly thereafter. ADS. 1pg. 8 ¾" x 8. Jany 21, 1783. Comptr Generals Office Phiada. A very rare autograph document signed "Jno Nicholson": "Capt Joseph Blewer Esqr acknowledges to have recd the sum of four thousand five hundred and eighty five pounds and Six pence of Samuel Massey Esqr. at the time and for the purpose Mentd. within which he had borrowed of Sd. Massey as, he declares upon Interest, he also produces a copy of his accts. Current wherein he charges himself and accts. for the expenditure of the sum aforesaid... £1000 were pd by his draft on the navy board in fav of I Hood." On the back are numbers totaling £4585.6 all in the handwriting of Joseph Blewer. At the bottom, Blewer penned "Receiv'd Octr 18 1777 from Samuel Massey Four Thousand five hundred & eighty five pounds & Six Pence for the use of the State of Pennsylvania. Joseph Blewer". Joseph Blewer of Philadelphia served in the Pennsylvania General Assembly from 1779 to 1780. Samuel Massey (1734-1793), a descendant of a prominent Quaker family in the Philadelphia region, was a captain in the Revolution and commanded a company of troops. Before the war, he owned a successful import company. As this document shows, Massey indirectly lent Pennsylvania money for the war efforts. Though Nicholson is a common autograph appearing on many pieces of Revolutionary War paper, the American Book Prices Current shows only two holograph pieces. The document is in fragile condition with fold separations and ragged edges

        Tratado do melhoramento da navegação por canães, onde se mostrão as numerosas vantagens ?traduzido para a portugueza ? por Antonio Carlos Ribeiro de Andrade Machado da Silva ?.

      Lisbon, Officina da Casa Litteraria do Arco do Cego, 1800. - (8 ll.), 114 pp., (1 blank l.), 18 engraved plates [some folding; numbered 1?12, 13a, 13b, 14?17]. 4°, contemporary quarter sheep over plain blue-grey paper boards (paper peeling; spine defective at head and foot; other binding wear), flat spine with leather lettering piece, gilt letter, text block sprinkled red. A few small wormholes in outer margin, not affecting text or images. In good to very good condition. ---- First edition in Portuguese of Fulton's @A Treatise on the Improvement of Canal Navigation, Exhibiting the Numerous Advantages to be Desired from Small Canals, and Boats of Two to Five Feet Wide . . . , published London, 1796. The @Treatise was the first major published work of the celebrated American inventor, engineer, and painter Robert Fulton. Born near Lancaster, Pennsylvania, in 1765, Fulton left for England in 1786, not returning to the United States until 1806. Under the patronage the Duke of Bridgewater, Fulton spent much of his time studying boat propulsion and canal improvements. The latter are documented in the @Treatise, where Fulton advocates the development in England of an extensive system of inland waterways, discusses their construction and operating costs, and describes various inventions designed to facilitate canal operation.Fulton's work found favor throughout Europe. It was soon translated into Portuguese with the express wish that its ideas could be exploited both in Portugal and in Brazil. The @Tratado faithfully reproduces the elegant plates of the London edition, which were engraved after Fulton's own designs. They depict not only types of canal machinery, but also the proper design of large wooden and cast iron bridges. The engraver was Inácio José de Freitas, who executed a number of other works at the Arco do Cego.The translator and editor, Antonio Carlos Ribeiro de Andrade Machado da Silva (1773-1845), was born in São Paulo, studied at the Universidade de Coimbra, and returned to Brazil, where he held various government posts. A staunch supporter of Brazilian independence, he was a ringleader of the failed 1817 Pernambuco revolt. The @Tratado is one of several works he translated for the Arco do Cego press.This text was published at the Arco do Cego press (officially the Tipografia Chalcografica, Tipoplastica e Literaria, located in Lisbon at the Arco do Cego), established in 1800 at the insistence of D. Rodrigo de Sousa Coutinho, Minister of State, who realized the need to spread information on new techniques in the arts, industry and agriculture in Portugal and Brazil. The director of the press was José Mariano da Conceição Veloso (1742?-1811), a native of Minas Geraes and a noted botanist; he was assisted by many young Brazilians living in Lisbon. In 1801 the Arco do Cego press was incorporated into the Regia Oficina Typografica, later known as the Impressão Regia and then the Imprensa Nacional.---- Borba de Moraes (1983) II, 798; @Período colonial p. 28.

        An album containing ten watercolour and gouache drawings of botanical arrangements

      1800 - Original gilt-patterned paper over pasteboard, green cloth ties A lovely early album of fine Chinese flower paintings, in remarkably fine condition. Despite its entirely Chinese origins this album was almost certainly produced for a western patron: perhaps a gift from an East India Company employee to his wife, or a Yankee clipper captain for his daughter. It contains a very fine selection of watercolours executed on pith-paper: a material that rarely survives in anything approaching fine condition. The drawings are all of arrangements of sprigs from flowering plants together with individual blooms. The intention of these drawings was not to provide dry scientifically-accurate botanical drawings, but to produce designs that were pleasing and harmonious. Flowers include Hibiscus, Gardenia, Chrysanthemum, Quince, Morning Glory, Camellia and two butterflies. It later became the custom to instruct the Chinese artists in the art of western botanical drawing and also supply them with good quality western paper to work on. The apparent lack of any foreign materials or method suggest an earlier date for this album, although the style of drawing did remain popular through most of the 19th century. (9 1/2 x 12 7/8 inches). 10 original watercolour and gouache drawings on Chinese pith paper (each approx. 8 x 11 1/2 inches), most with small areas heightened with gum arabic, each tipped onto a backing sheet at each corner and bordered by strips of pale blue paper that are also tipped to the backing sheet (four with insignificant splits to the pith paper, as usual).

        SALZBURG PERICOPES STANDARD EDITION (DAS SALZBURGER PERIKOPENBUCH MIT LEDEREINBAND) Fine Facsimile Illuminated Edition of 11th Century

      Faksimile Verlag Luzern. New;. Hardcover. <p>Salzburg Pericopes, 11th century - Bayerische Staatsbibliothek Clm 15713</p><p>A Monumental Example of Ottonian Book Illumination </p><p>A Counterpart to Secular Manuscripts </p><p>The Salzburg Pericopes provide an outstanding example of a manuscript in the tradition of Ottonian book illumination which is closely related to the Carolingian style. As all great manuscripts from the Ottonian period, the Salzburg Pericopes were created in a monastery. However, the Pericopes were not made on the initiative of an Emperor but on request of the high clergy, thus forming a counterpart to the well-known secular manuscripts of the time. The extremely lavishly decorated manuscript may be considered as the equivalent of the Gospel Pericopes of Henry II, another important illuminated manuscript in the European tradition. </p><p>Our Pericopes were probably executed around 1020 in Salzburg, during the reign of the emperor Henry II. They were obviously done for Hartwig, archbishop of Salzburg, and destined for liturgigal purposes on selected high feast days of the Church year. In contrast to a Gospel Book, this book comprises only the passages from the Gospels which are to be read throughout the ecclesiastical year, the gospel pericopes, thus making it easier for the priest celebrating Mass to find the proper text. </p><p>Combining the Most Beautiful Traditions of Book Illumination </p><p>When Emperor Otto II married the Byzantine princess Theophano, this caused a wave of Byzantine influences in the Arts and Scholarship which in turn enriched book illumination with expressive gestures and Byzantine figure modelling. However, the scriptoria of Central Europe were also exposed to the influence of the remarkable Salzburg school, e. G. The Regensburg tradition in which spirit the precious works of St. Emmeram&#39;s Abbey, such as the Sacramentary of Henry II, were created or the Reichenau school whose rich production features highlights, such as the Reichenau Gospels or the Gospel Book of Otto III. </p><p>New Mobility of Scribes and Illuminators </p><p>In the Middle Ages the monasteries were considered the upholders of civilisation and there was a great mobility between them. At the same time, the scriptoria in the monasteries organised exchanges of scribes and illuminators. This led to the combination of influences from the most famous workshops with those of the new Byzantine movement and finally to the culmination of German book art of the 11th century in one work: the Salzburg Pericopes. Another important reason for the upswing of the Salzburg school was the institutional separation before the turn of the century of St. Peter&#39;s Abbey from the archdiocese and the election of an independent abbot. Shortly after that the scriptorium began to flourish again. </p><p>A Magnificent Manuscript as Spoils of War </p><p>Next to nothing is known about the fate of the manuscript, until the beginning of the 19th century. It neither appears in catalogues of books nor in library inventories. For this period, research has to rely on what is recorded in the manuscript itself. In 1800, when the French occupying forces had cast an eye on the codex, it was first listed in an inventory to trace the treasures of the Salzburg cathedral that had been taken to Paris. After Napoleon&#39;s defeat, the manuscript was moved to Munich where it is kept to this day (at that time, Salzburg belonged to Bavaria). </p><p>Twelve Magnificent Ivory Tablets </p><p>Twelve precious ivory tablets are embedded in the front cover of the red leather binding, most probably a work of the 11th century, which goes back either to artists from the South of France or from the North of Spain. Being the only examples of their kind having come down to us, these tablets were originally designed for a portable altar. However, we do not know when and how they found their way to Salzburg. This luxurious binding is one of the special features in manuscripts from this epoch which are still waiting to be studied in more detail. </p><p>A Sumptuous Example of Book Illumination </p><p>Overwhelming gold inlay or decoration is one of the main features of the Salzburg Pericopes: The beholder stands in admiration before the 19 gilded miniatures, one of the highlights of artistic creation at the time. But also the 70 richly decorated luxurious initial letters and innumerable small gold initials within the text make this marvellous manuscript a true de luxe example of its kind. </p><p>The Fine Art Facsimile Edition - an Exclusive Art Treasure </p><p>The unique and complete fine art reproduction of the Salzburg Pericopes was fostered by His Eminence, Dr. Franz König, cardinal of Vienna. The facsimile comprises 140 richly embellished pages. The pages have been trimmed to the format of approx. 37,2 x 29 cm. The finest details were reproduced as a faithful copy of the original made possible by the most up-to-date technical processes and highly qualified craftsmanship. All leaves are trimmed according to the original and sewn together by hand. </p><p>The world-wide limited de luxe edition of only 180 numbered copies includes replicas of the twelve magnificent ivory tablets in a faithful reproduction of the original binding in dark red kidskin with metal clasps. The de luxe edition has been sold out. </p><p>The standard edition is limited to 300 copies world-wide and comes in a precious dark-red kidskin binding with sumptuous embossings and clasps. </p><p>The Commentary Volume </p><p>On 176 pages, the commentary volume explains the history of the Salzburg Pericopes in a number of comprehensive and interesting contributions by experts of international renown. Editor Prof. Dr. Hermann Fillitz, Vienna; Prof. Dr. Heinrich Dopsch, Salzburg; Dr. Hermann Hauke, Munich; Prof. Dr. Ulrich Kuder, Kiel; Doz. Dr. Martina Pippal, Vienna; Dr. Peter Wind, Salzburg. </p><p>Documentation Kit</p><p>A documentation kit containing three full-sized leaves from the Fine Art Facsimile Edition and an illustrated 16-page information brochure is available for information upon request. </p> .

      Richard, Caille, Ravier, Paris 1800 - 8vo. 326pp. Quarter calf gilt, paste paper boards, vellum corners, hinges a little tender. Faint dampstains on first 20 or so leaves, otherwise a clean, crisp copy. First Edition. Garrison-Morton 537. The foundation of histology and tissue pathology. Bichat's most important contribution to anatomy was his generalization of Pinel's theory, expressed in Nosographie philosophique (1798), that pathology must be based upon the structure of the tissues of which bodily organs are composed, regardless of where in the body they occur. Bichat distinguished twenty-one different types of tissue, which he classified according to texture and to properties: extensibility, contractility, and the vital properties-- organic contractility and sensibility ("insensible" or "subliminal") on the one hand, and animal contractility and sensibility ("sensible" or "conscious") on the other. Each tissue differed in its diseases, as diseases were nothing more than alterations in the tissue's vital properties. Claude Bernard said of Bichat that he "decentralized life and incarnated it in the tissues" (quoted in Hall II, p. 129), and that his ideas were the source of modern opinions concerning vital phenomena.
