        Ehon imayo sugata [trans.: Picture Book of the Forms and Figures of Today]

      24 double-page woodcut color printed illus. 25; 20 folding leaves. Two vols. 8vo, orig. blind-stamped blue wrappers (rubbed), orig. block printed title labels on upper covers (rubbed), new stitching. Tokyo: 1802. First edition of one of the most notable masterpieces of the Utagawa School, founded by Utagawa Toyoharu (1735-1814). "Of Toyoharu's pupils the most prolific was Toyokuni I (1769-1825), who from 1786 until his death in 1825 was responsible for illustrating some 180 books as well as for producing a large number of prints...[the present work] was probably his finest work in this field, containing a series of double-page studies of women of all classes, although here again the style shows the marked influence of Utamaro."-Chibbett, The History of Japanese Printing and Book Illustration, p. 183. Toyokuni I's "Ehon Imayo Sugata, 'Picture-book of the Forms and Figures of Today', two volumes of colour prints dated 1802, marks a significant advance, and is Toyokuni's finest achievement in book form, outside the volumes of actors discussed in Chapter 41. Toyokuni is credited with both text and pictures, but Shikitei Samba is acknowledged as the 'reader' or 'reviser' and no doubt 'ghosted' the writing: it is significant that the covers are decorated with a repeat design of the seals of the two men, the toshidama of the Utagawa school of which Toyokuni was the head, and the name Shikitei. In the first volume, the text explains that 'All types of women, from the noblest to the lowest class, virtuous or immoral' are the subject of the book, and this promise is fulfilled in the two volumes, each with twelve double-page colour prints... "The first volume is devoted to the virtuous: a court lady in formal dress, women of the samurai class in an elegant interior pursuing polite occupations, women of the 'townsmen' class, the chonin, at home and outdoors; backstreet dwellers, working-class women such as an archery range attendant, and a stall-holder selling cosmetics; and peasants resting in the fields. The second volume by contrast shows both the allure and the seamier side of the licensed quarters. It begins with a picture of one of the queens of the Yoshiwara with her retinue, followed by scenes of courtesans awaiting their clients; geisha preparing for a niwaka festival; the manageress or 'madame' of a brothel; low-class houses by the river (kashimimise); houses of the Nampin or Shinagawa red-light districts, portraying some of the degenerate women of those areas; the haori geisha and children's house (of boy prostitutes) in Tatsumi or Fukugawa; prostitutes of Koeki and Shinjuku; an old yotaka or night-walker on the street; and finally, a low-class unlicensed river-boat prostitute, who appears in the most poetic of the scenes, standing at the prow of a boat on the Sumida, under a crescent moon (a print often reproduced). In his comments accompanying the Rinsen facsimile of this book, Juzo Suzuki, who is to be relied on in such matters, states, 'The illustrations are superb in their depiction of costume, buildings and interior furniture and in the way they demonstrate the different circumstances and way of life of each class of women'."-Hillier, The Art of the Japanese Book, pp. 671-72-(& illustrated). As mentioned by Hillier, the earliest impressions -- very rare proof impressions -- contain cartouches with printed names and descriptions. Because of censorship, the names and descriptions were deleted for the published edition, leaving the cartouches blank. Volume I of this set has blank cartouches with the names and descriptions filled in by hand by someone who had access to the proof impressions. The cartouches remain blank in the second volume. In fine condition, preserved in a box. ❧ Brown, Block Printing & Book Illustration in Japan, pp. 78 & 151-55-(with color plate 29). .

        Plate 110 - Antholyza Aethiopica

      Paris 1802 - Pierre-Joseph Redouté A selection from Les Liliacées Stipple engravings with original hand color Paris: 1802-1816 21” x 14” Some discoloration around the edges. The unequalled botanical artist Pierre-Joseph Redouté occupies a central position in the development of European flower painting. Redouté had, as pupils or patrons, five queens and empresses of France, from Marie-Antoinette to Empress Josephine and her successor, Marie-Louise. Despite many changes of regime in a turbulent epoch, he worked without interruption, a testament to his greatness as an artist. Les Liliacées was Redouté's largest and most ambitious work and is generally considered his masterpiece, arguably rivaled only by Les Roses. Produced under the patronage of the Empress Josephine, for whom Redouté worked as botanical artist at her estate at Malmaison, these pristine examples represent landmark works in the field of flower illustration. The title Les Liliacées is misleading, as the work was of a much broader scope, including representatives of the lily, amaryllis, iris, orchid, and other families. The plates were executed by means of stipple engraving, a method that the artist himself perfected when he was unsatisfied with the effects garnered by traditional copper-plate engraving. As Redouté shrewdly observed, the delicacy and subtle elegance of his compositions could only be captured using a printing method equally fine. The luminosity of stipple engraving is particularly suited to the reproduction of botanical detail. The medium involved engraving a copper plate with a dense grid of dots that could be modulated to convey delicate gradations of color. Because the ink rested on the paper in miniscule dots, it did not obscure the "light" of the paper beneath the color. After this complicated printing process was complete, the prints were finished by hand in watercolor, so as to conform to the exquisite models Redouté provided. Les Liliacées records the plants of the lily family, and related flowers, that Josephine collected for her gardens at Malmaison. Redouté's small drawings, placed at the bottom of the main illustrations, record the anatomical features of each species so that each flower could be identified with precision and cultivated to perfection. In each illustration, as in his series Les Roses, the flowers are classical "portraits" which lack backgrounds or settings. The regal simplicity of the compositions allows the viewer to focus without distraction on the beauty and delicate complexity of the plants themselves. Redoutés's work represents a uniquely harmonious blend of scientific precision and supremely delicate rendering.

        The History of New South Wales including Botany Bay, Port Jackson, Parramatta, Sydney, and all its Dependencies

      London: M. Jones, 1802. Octavo, with an engraved title page and 14 hand-coloured plates (including frontispiece), good in contemporary full polished calf (a bit scuffed and rubbed), morocco label. Gentleman pickpocket turned colonial historian? The first book to contain coloured illustrations of Sydney.This is the first book edition of Barrington's famous work, following its original issue in fourteen weekly parts. The History, with its fourteen full-page plates, is one of the first books to show proper settlement in New South Wales - only Collins's Account of the Colony... published in 1798 contains earlier depictions. Despite questions about its actual authorship, this is a substantial and important account of early Sydney. The preface claims justifiably that 'no prior attempt has been made to produce a complete history of the Country itself, from its discovery, and an account of its inhabitants, their customs and manners...'.George Barrington had been transported to Sydney on the Third Fleet of 1791, already a legend as a rogue. Over the next decade English publishers used his notoriety to produce books on transportation and the new colony for a public eager for information.This copy contains the letterpress half-title page, but does not include the list of plates and directions to the binder. Standard collation is not a feature of this book, as noted by Garvey: 'it is also common to find parts of the apparatus omitted'.

        Lilium Martagon / Lis Martagon [Martagon Lily]

      Imprimerie de Didot jeune, Paris 1802 - Stipple engraving, printed in colour and finished by hand, engraved by de Gouy. 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 in Les Liliacées from which this work comes. Les Liliacées is 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. More than with any other painter, one sees in Redouté's flowers living, breathing beings at their most beautiful moment. Cf. Nissen BBI 1597; cf.Great Flower Books (1990), p 128; cf. Dunthorne p 231; cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 8747; cf. MacPhaeil, Redouteana, 10.

      New York: Printed and sold by George F. Hopkins, 1802. - Two volumes. viii,317,[1]pp., with two pages numbered 167 and two pages numbered 168, as noted on the errata sheet and with page numbering 263-270 repeated; v,[3],351pp. Contemporary sheep, gilt morocco spine label on first volume (lacking on second volume). Hinges of second volume repaired, boards quite rubbed and edgeworn. Contemporary ownership signature on titlepage of both volumes. Moderate tanning and staining. Good. In cloth chemises and half morocco and cloth slipcases, spines gilt. Styled the "revised and corrected" edition on the titlepage, with additions to the first edition of 1788. "Most famous and influential American political work. Written in collaboration with Jay and Madison" - Howes. Ford attributes editorship of this edition to John Wells, though Sabin attributes it to William Coleman, noting it as "the last issued during Hamilton's life." This edition is expanded by the addition of the federal constitution and the first eleven amendments, and a series of articles written by Hamilton under the pseudonym "Pacificus," defending Washington's "Neutrality Proclamation" of 1793 regarding the Anglo-French war. Arguably the most complete edition, and the only other English language edition issued in Hamilton's lifetime, in the preface it identifies Hamilton, Jay, and Madison as the authors but does not specify who wrote which essays; "it was at first intended to mark the numbers distinctly which were written by each; but considerations have since occurred which would perhaps render this measure improper." Clearly issued by Hamilton partisans, the preface implies that virtually all of it was Hamilton's work, and the republication of the Pacificus essays (written in opposition to Madison) confirms the Hamiltonian slant.
