REDOUTÉ, Pierre-Joseph (1759-1840)
Paris: Imprimerie de Didot jeune, 1802. Stipple engraving, printed in colour and finished by hand, engraved by Langlois. Watermarked wove paper: "A COURTALIN". Expertly restored. 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 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 these were brought to perfection inLes Liliacéesfrom which this work comes.Les Liliacéesis one of two Redouté masterworks, the other being Les Roses . These works demonstrate the appropriateness of the accolade "Raphael of Flowers", for one is constantly impressed by the exquisite compositional sense and clarity of vision.

The Raising of Jaïrus' Daughter; a Poem ... to Which is Annexed a Short Memoir, Interspersed with a Few Poetical Productions, of the Late Caroline Symmons. viii, 45, [1], [1, ads], [1] pp. London: R. Taylor, for J. Mawman, et al, 1804. Lacking frontispiece. Sadlier, Archdeacon Wrangham, 13 Each work inscribed "From the author" in a secretarial hand on the title-page. Poems is notable for its translations by Wrangham's Cambridge friend Samuel Taylor Coleridge (who translates the Latin of Wranham's Latin "Hendecasyllabi ad Bruntonam") and William Wordsworth (translating the anonymous French lyric "Prenant les traits de l"innocence"). The volume would be remarkable for the joint appearance of the two poets at such an early date (four years before Lyrical Ballads) -- though in fact, the book was not published until 1802. All but the preliminary leaves of Poems were printed in 1795, but publication delayed, the reason given in the Advertisement that "other, and (it is trusted) better employments have suspended their publication" Sadlier, Archdeacon Wrangham, 7(b). Provenance: Georgel Lillie Craik (bookplate); Arthur A. Houghton (bookplate, his sale Christie's London, 12 June 1980, lot 550); John Davidson (bookplate).

Pages 322 - 329 with a full page plate bearing ten figures (illustrations) for the construction D'une oreille de Charrue -- Jefferson's new design for a plough-ear which he tested in Monticello. This article appeared in "Annales du Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle" -- Tome Primiere with 32 engraved plates (2 folding, one colored). Jefferson wrote to A. Thouin, a major contributor to the Society: "I have made a small alteration in the form of the toe of the Mould-board, which, while it preserves the principle untouched enables us to shorten the ploughshare six to eight inches, which is preferred by the agriculturists here to the first form." He sent Thorin a small box containing the model, and calls himself "not to be adept, but only a zealous amateur in the objects of the society." Ex-library, Harvard College bookplate.

HUGO Victor (1802-1885). Poète, dramaturge et écrivain français. Lettre autographe signée « V.H. », Paris, 12 décembre 1837, à Adolphe Granier de Cassagnac, 1 page 1/2 in-8, adresse et cachets postaux, traces d'onglets en marge. « Voici la lettre, Je vous serais bien obligé de dire que le Messager a publié deux lignes seulement d'un billet de M. Victor Hugo à M. Dumas, billet que ce journal aurait dû publier en entier. Il serait bien important aussi, n'est-ce pas ? d'énoncer formellement que M. Victor Hugo n'a pas répondu à M. Jules de Wailly, mais qu'il a envoyé la lettre et le journal au ministre de l'Intérieur, etc. Je désirerais beaucoup que ma lettre fût publiée textuellement y compris la formule qui la termine (...) V.H. » Bernard-Adolphe Granier de Cassagnac (1806-1880) était un journaliste et homme politique français. Il collabora notamment au Journal des débats et à La Revue de Paris où il y rencontra Victor Hugo. Cette lettre est écrite au moment ou Victor Hugo se trouve en procès contre la Comédie française.

PLAYFAIR, John. (1748 1819).

John Playfair was a Scottish mathematician and geologist best known for his defence of James Hutton's geological theories. This highly influential book, first published in 1802, contains Playfair's clarification and summary of Hutton's geological concepts. Playfair explains Hutton's theories on erosion and geothermal heat in rock formation and the concept of uniformitarianism in geology, illustrating these theories with his own observations on types of rock strata. Playfair's explanation was instrumental in popularising Hutton's geological theories, many of which are now recognised as key principles of modern geology.
