        Iris Pseudacorus / Iris faux-acore

      Paris: Imprimerie de Didot jeune, 1802. 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 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. Stipple engraving, printed in colour and finished by hand, engraved by Langlois. Very good condition, with the exception of being trimmed at the top edge into image.

Stephens writes that "It gives a comprehensive account of the workings of the money market at the date of its publication, and of the attitude in which the Bank of England stood towards the rest of the commercial world. As Bank Director, the author was peculiarly qualified to explain the inner mechanisms of the financial system. He insists that over-issue would depreciate the value of notes, but does not consider that the bank issue of the Bank of England is excessive".Kress B4612. Goldsmith 18526. Stephens, p.32.

Scarce, though not as historically important as the 1800 edition, (see our ref. 8142), there have been fewer copies available. The 1802 edition of 'Lyrical Ballads' differs from the 1800 edition in the following ways: Coleridge contributed four poems only, 'The Dungeon' having been withdrawn. Wordsworth's 'A Character' was also omitted. The famous 'Preface' was considerably expanded, (64 pages in this edition compared to 46 pages in the 1800 edition), and many changes were introduced into the text of the Poems. Three poems were removed from vol. I and given new positions in vol. II. Finally Coleridge in this edition cancelled the 'Argument' to 'The Ancient Mariner'. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      . Paris, Museum d'Histoire Naturelle, 1802-1897. 4to. 2,048 copper engravings and lithographed plates of which many double-sized or larger, and/or hand-coloured or in chromolithography, and seven portraits. Contemporary uniform marbled boards with morocco labels on the spines in different colours for the different series; original printed wrappers of several issues bound in (Annales, Memoires, Nouvelle Annales), and near contemporary uniform cloth bindings with red morocco labels (Archives and Nouvelles Archives, first series), and original printed wrappers (last two series of the Nouvelles Archives). * Very rare set, seldom seen complete, of the most important scientific natural history journal published in France during the 19th century. There are in total 84 volumes in 4to with over 2,000 engraved and lithographed plates, of which over 250 are hand-coloured or in chromolithography. This work contains the contributions of all the famous French naturalists of the 19th century, in many cases the first publication(s) of these authors, or at least in their first editions, and often their most important research and results. In the Annales, for instance, Cuvier published his important series on molluscan anatomy, while his rival Lamarck contributed with his monograph of the fossil shells of the Paris Basin. Ornithology is well-represented. For instance: De Blainville, le Dodo, autrement Dronte (Didus ineptus L.) with four lithographed plates one being a beautiful hand-coloured head of the dodo by G. de Bierre. Another important "first" is Geoffroy St-Hilaire's "Descriptions des Mammiferes nouveaux ou imparfaitement connus: famille des Singes" with eight lithographed plates of which two are coloured, one of which is the chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes L.) and appears to be the first monograph, antedating that of Owen by seven years. A herpetological; treasure is De Blainville's "Description de quelques especes de reptiles de la Californie". Throughout all series there is also much on entomology, and more on conchology/malacology, including palaeontology, ichthyology and studies on crustaceans. Authors included are Cuvier, Valenciennes, Audouin, Lamarck, Becquerel, H. and A. Milne-Edwards, Brongniart, Jussieu, Tulasne, De Serres, Dumeril, Thouin, Deleuze, Fourcroy, Vauquelin a.o. Among the entomological titles we find, e.g., the following works by Lyonet: "Anatomie de differentes especes d'insectes" (a long series, with plates by W. de Haan), Lacordaire's "Essai sur les coleopteres de la Guyane Francaise", an illustrated paper by Boisduval on Macrolepidoptera from Madagascar, Mauritius and Reunion, inaptly titled "Considerations generales"; Audouin and Brulle's "Description des especes nouvelles ou peu connues de la famille des cicindeletes", with nice large hand-coloured plates, Raffray's "Coleopteres de la famille des paussides"; Paul Gervais' paper titled "remarques sur la famille des scorpions et description de plusiers especes nouvelles de la collection du Museum", and more. Pere David, first westerner to see the deer named after him and the giant panda, published his travel diaries in the Nouvelles Archives, with many zoological observations, and this came with a string of papers by Vaillant, Sauvage, Heude, and others on the specimens of birds, fish, molluscs and other animals he collected. Over the years many papers included in this series have been sold separately for considerable prices. In all it can be stated that these publications by the natural history museum of Paris do not only contain a great deal of zoological, palaeontological, geological and (bio)chemical observations and discoveries, but also provided a platform for many new ideas and concepts about how the natural world is organized and how it is developing. Some rubbing to boards, and especially to spine ends. Ten parts of the Nouvelles Archives with renewed spine, a few text parts with brittle edges (and, however, very wide margins), a few text sections and plates spotted or age-toned, but much less so than usual; a few sections, including plates with some offsetting (more obtrusive in a few sections of the Memoires), some minor creasing, a few captions shaved and some minor, usually marginal dampstaining. See the collation for a detailed list of irregularities, including reversals of plate orders including plate 5 of Nouvelles Archives volume 4 perhaps being issued later and here bound in volume 5. In all a very impressive, and complete set. Nissen ZBI, 4551, 4552, 4560, 4561, 4677.(Postage on this item might be more than indicated, please inquire).

      Imprimerie de Didot jeune, Paris 1802 - 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. Stipple engraving, printed in colour and finished by hand, engraved by Langlois jeune.

Extended comprehensive index, footnotes.

Paper over inner hinges of volume I split, not affecting binding which remains firm and tight. Nice embroidered ribbon marker to each volume. In about fine condition (some annotations in light coloured pencil in one volume). A very handsome set. ~ Adam Smith's (1723-1790) work is the first major expression of organized study of social wealth. ??The Wealth of Nations' is not a system, but as a provisional analysis it is completely convincing. The certainty of its criticism and its grasp of human nature have made it the first and greatest classic of modern economic thought.? (PMM 221). The present, much admired French translation of Smith's ?Wealth of Nations?, by the French poet and economist Comte Germain Garnier (1754-1821), became the standard, definitive French text. (Palgrave 1894-1901). Garnier's elegant Preface to this edition contains a summary of the doctrine of Smith, a comparison between the same and that of French economists, and a parallel between the wealth of France and that of England. - - The present set is the scarce corrected issue, published without the 5 errata slips (one to each volume) and conforms to Einaudi's 5340 description.

        RETURN OF THE WHOLE NUMBER OF PERSONS WITHIN THE SEVERAL DISTRICTS OF THE UNITED STATES: ACCORDING TO "AN ACT PROVIDING FOR THE SECOND CENSUS OR ENUMERATION OF THE INHABITANTS OF THE UNITED STATES," PASSED FEBRUARY THE 28th, ONE THOUSAND EIGHT HUNDRED

      Washington: Printed at the Apollo Press, by Wm. Duane & Son, 1802.. [5]-88pp. plus folding table. Contemporary marbled wrappers. Wrappers lightly rubbed. Near fine. The octavo edition of the complete returns of the second American census (the first to be printed by official order), following the very rare folio edition of the previous year. When the delegates of the Constitutional Convention met in Philadelphia in 1787, the population of America was a great unknown. Aside from the expected reduction in the male population due to the recent war, hoards of Loyalists had fled to Canada, while throughout the 1780s large numbers of families sought new opportunities in the frontier along the Ohio. These dramatic shifts, combined with a known but unquantified increase in the number of births per annum, created a definite need for some sort of official count. Under Madison's leadership six categories were determined for the first American census of 1790: heads of family, free white males over sixteen, free white males under sixteen, free white females, other free persons, and slaves. Despite the usual hesitancy of the people to offer such personal information to government officials, the effort was a resounding success; but due to rapid growth and increased contact with Indians, it was clear that the next census would require even more statistical enumeration. In early 1800, Congress passed an act mandating a new census. The present effort contains a new layer of schedules, including places of residence, new age group brackets for free white males and females, and, most importantly, the qualification that untaxed Indians be left off the roll of "other free persons." All of the states are represented, as well as the aforementioned territories and other regions such as the eastern and western districts of Pennsylvania and Virginia, and the District of Columbia, here noted as part of Virginia. Such luminaries as Thomas Jefferson and Timothy Dwight of Yale called for even more specific information such as economic standing, occupation, and distinctions between immigrant and natural-born free people; but Congress, for now, ignored their appeals. The total population, with corrections, is given as just over 5.3 million. A most important record of the growth of the United States, at a key moment in the history of American demography.

        Plate 26 - Methonica Superba (Superb Climbing Lily)

      Pierre-Joseph Redout?Hand-colored stipple engraving from Les Liliac?esParis: 1802-181631 1/4” x 24 1/4” framedThe unequalled botanical artist Pierre-Joseph Redout? occupies a central position in the development of European flower painting. Redout? had, as pupils or patrons, five queens and empresses of France, fromMarie-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 Liliac?es was Redout?'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 Redout? worked as botanical artist at her estate at Malmaison, these pristine examples represent landmark works in the field of flower illustration.The title Les Liliac?es 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 Redout? 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 Redout? provided.??? ??? ??? ??? ??? Les Liliac?es records the plants of the lily family, and related flowers, that Josephine collected for her gardens at Malmaison. Redout?'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. Redout?s's work represents a uniquely harmonious blend of scientific precision and supremely delicate rendering.
