        Iris Pumila floribus coeruleis / Iris Naine à fleurs bleues [Dwarf Bearded Iris]

      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 "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.

        The China Limodoron

      London 1802 - The most strikingly beautiful flower plates ever to be printed in England. "This noble evergreen orchid [the China Limodoron Phaius Tankervillae (Banks) Blume, Phaius grandifolius], native of the lands from China to Australia, was introduced to England from China in 1778 by Dr Fothergill, an eminent and wealthy physician who had a garden at Upton in Essex with a 260-foot glasshouse adjoining the house. It was doubtless in this glasshouse that the plant was first grown. Its many-flowered spikes, from two to four feet high, which are produced from February and March, are fine for exhibition and withstand cutting well. Individual flowers are from three to four inches across. Thornton's name for the plant. is a corruption of Limodorum, the botanical name of the genus in which the plant was placed in his time. The plate.represents the plant very well. The landscape behind is unobtrusive and contains little to distract the viewer. The beauty of the plant is left to make its own impact. In Thornton's day this must have been tremendous, as few exotic orchids had as yet been flowered in Europe and it was to be another twenty years before their culture began to be understood." (Ronald King, The Temple of Flora by Robert Thornton , 1981, p.104). 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). First and only state of this plate from the Temple of Flora. Hand-coloured and colour-printed in aquatint, stipple and line by Landseer. Trimmed just within platemark at top and bottom.

        An Act to facilitate, and render more easy, the Transportation of Offenders [29th December 1802]

      London: George Eyre & Andrew Strahan, 1802. Printed bifolium, pp. [109]-110, armorial letterhead, last 2pp. blank; very good. Uncommon: an 1802 Act which significantly altered the practice of transportation due to the legal loophole pointed out by the great legal theorist Jeremy Bentham the same year, who noticed that a Royal Navy vessel carrying convicts left the captain in the legal position of being a kidnapper. Jeremy Bentham made his argument in his Letters to Lord Pelham (1802) in a long discussion of the peculiar legal standing of the convict ship the Glatton, which had been the first "king's ship" to serve as a convict transport, rather than having been hired from a private individual as hitherto. Bentham commented that this was a legal minefield, and that the ship's captain of the Glatton had - legally, at least - been guilty of kidnap. The ship's captain, before the institution of the present Act, wrote Bentham, had no better warrant than if he had coerced revellers from a "birth-day ball-room". It was directly as the result of Bentham's argument that the present Act allowed the King to "nominate and appoint Persons to have a Property in the Service of such Offenders…". The voyage of the Glatton to New South Wales was under Captain James Colnett, a veteran of Cook's second voyage and author of an important account of his own Pacific voyage in the late 1780s. The Glatton had another claim to fame, being commanded by Captain William Bligh in the 1801 battle of Copenhagen.

        Autograph letter signed to Dawson Turner

      Cambridge, 1802. <p>Donn, James (1758-1813). Autograph letter signed to Dawson Turner (1775-1858). 2 &#150; 1/2 pages. Cambridge, 14 December 1802. 217 x 191 mm. Tiny lacunae in both leaves not affecting text, otherwise fine. </p><p>From English botanist James Donn, curator of the Cambridge University Botanic Gardens from 1790 until his death and author of Hortus Cantabrigensis (1796 and later editions), to fellow botanist Dawson Turner, author of several botanical works including Synopsis of British Fuci (1802) and Botanist&#146;s Guide through England and Wales (1805), and father-in-law of William Jackson Hooker. Donn and Turner were evidently in the habit of exchanging botanical specimens with one another; in his letter Donn acknowledges the receipt of a &#147;tin box&#148; from Turner and states that while he &#147;has only time, presently, to send you the Carex stricta, depauperata and clandestina,&#148; he will soon &#147;send you a pacquet of seeds for your garden.&#148; Since he knows that Turner habitually corresponds with German botanists, Donn asks him </p><p>"if you will take the trouble when you write to request of them to send you seeds of such things as they have to spare but particularly the seeds of grasses. They have no occasion to be very nice in selecting them, as many times the most common sorts are acceptable and if I have them before it is only throwing them aside . . . I have added at bottom a list of a few things I want." </p><p>Under his &#147;List of wants&#148; Donn enumerated the following species: Milium lendigerum (i.e. Gastridium ventricosum or nitgrass); Agrostis spica venti (sweet bentgrass); Aira canescens (gray hairgrass); Bromus racemosus (bald brome); Galium anglicum (Lamarck&#146;s bedstraw) and Centaurea solstitialis (yellow star-thistle).</p>

        A Boy Angling; A Boy Mending His Net

      J. & J. Boydell, London 1802 - A charming pair of scenes of childhood, colour-printed and beautifully finished by hand. Fine examples of large scale aquatints from Westall, based on his own charming watercolours. Westall was at his best in watercolour, and was the leader of a reform in figure-painting in this medium. The brilliancy of his colouring was considered novel and astonishing in his own day. A large number of Westall's rustic subjects were engraved, such as Rural Contemplation and Rural Music, by T. Gaugain, 1801; The Sad Story and The Woodcutter and Cowboy, by John Ogborne, 1802; A Storm in Harvest, 1802; and Reapers, 1805, by Robert Mitchell Meadows. (DNB). This extraordinarily appealing pair evoke the boyhood happiness of solitary outdoor activities. In one, a boy attentively mends his net by the seashore and in the other, another boy kneels by a quiet pond with his fishing rod and waits. Stipple engravings, printed in colours, with touches of hand-colouring, by William Nutter & Thomas Gaugain (1) and Hollyer and Gaugain (2).

        Monographia Apum Angliae ; or, an attempt to divide into their Natural Genera and Families, such species of the Linnean Genus Apis as have been discovered in England

      Ipswich: Printed for the Author by J. Raw, 1802. Two volumes bound in one, octavo, 18 plates (4 with original hand-colouring), half-titles and errata leaf, bookplate; an attractive work in early polished tan half calf, banded spine with morocco label. Australian bees collected by Sir Joseph Banks. A lovely copy of the first edition of this fundamental study of bees: this is one of only a small number of books noted by Musgrave, including those of Lewin and Donovan, published before 1805 to include notice of any Australian insects. Kirby, a keen entomologist, based a significant amount of his work on his access to the Banks collection (&#39;has omitted no opportunity of consulting&hellip; the magnificent collection of Sir Joseph Banks, so liberally open to naturalists&hellip;&#39;), including making comparison with specimens from the Endeavour voyage. Kirby (1759-1850) was born in Suffolk, and famously collaborated with W. Spence on the Introduction to Entomology. This is the first of his works to include any Australian specimens, although he would later jointly publish work based on collections made by Robert Brown. The actual Australian specimens from his collection were presented by the Entomological Society of London to the British Museum in 1863. Kirby&#39;s study includes a very good bibliography, noticing the works of Donovan, Fabricius, Latreille, Panzer, Roemer and other entomologists. The most relevant entry is Kirby&#39;s notice of the Melitta cyanura from the cabinet of Banks &#39;from New South Wales&#39;, and which &#39;should come next to M. signata (y), which stands with it in the same cabinet, from the same country&#39; (Volume I, p. 212).

      Published by Colnaghi, Cockspur Street, London 1802 - A wonderful print of Admiral Lord Nelson from Hoppner's famous portrait. Admiral Lord Nelson was one of England's greatest heroes; his naval victories shaped the history of Britain and sparked the formation of an empire.

With intelligence and valour, Nelson won some of the most important naval battles in British history. His victories included the battle of the Nile, the battle of Copenhagen, and lastly the battle of Trafalgar, which is still remembered today as one of the greatest naval battles ever to have taken place. Trafalgar was Nelson's last and most famous victory, and it gave Britain command of the seas for a century. O'Donoghue, Catalogue of Engraved British Portraits.in the British Museum 52.

        An Account of a Geographical and Astronomical Expedition to the Northern Parts of Russia

      London: A. Strahan, 1802. Quarto, with a folding map and 14 engraved plates; a few light spots and library stamps; a good copy in old half calf, marbled sides. The Aleutians. The classic description of the Aleutian Islands. This is the only edition in English of the Englishman Sauer&#39;s full account of the Billings voyage, on which he travelled as secretary to the captain. This was the last of the major Russian surveys of the eastern coast of Siberia, and accomplished a great deal of geographical research, visiting Kodiak, Montague Island and Prince William Sound, and saw Mount St Elias. Billings&#39; naval career had started under Cook: he sailed as an able-bodied seaman on the Discovery, transferring on Cook&#39;s death to the Resolution. His voyage included a revisiting of Kamchatka where Captain Clerke, who had taken over the command of the third voyage after Cook&#39;s death, had been buried. One of the plates in this publication shows Clerke&#39;s grave. Sauer&#39;s is the &#39;first account in English of the first major exploring expedition sent out by the Russians to the Frozen Ocean and the North Pacific after Bering&#39;s second expedition of 1741&hellip; The chart was made by Arrowsmith from Sauer&#39;s notes and Captain Billings&#39;s astronomical observations&hellip;&#39; (Streeter). The large folding map is of Bering Strait and the American and Asian coasts. The appendices include linguistic tables, one of which compares Kamchatkan, Aleutian and Kodiak dialects.

[with] A Compendious Geographical Dictionary. The third edition, embellished with maps, including those of Australasia and Polynesia. [with] JONES, Stephen. A New Biographical Dictionary. The Fourth edition, corrected

      London: W. Peacock and Sons, 1802-, 1804. Three volumes altogether, duodecimo, engraved folding maps highlighted in watercolour; uniformly bound in contemporary dark blue straight-grained morocco, all edges gilt; a fine and charming set in an original matching bookform box, gilt tooled spine. Delightful small reference library. Fine example of a gentleman&#39;s reference library in miniature, contained in its original custom-made bookform box, and including two geographical reference works - one arranged alphabetically and the other by region. The third volume is a general biographical dictionary from ancient to contemporary times. The two geographical references, which were intended as companion volumes, are of particular interest for what they show of the dissemination of information about discoveries in the Pacific to the general reading public. As late as 1802, some thirty years after the discovery of the east coast by Cook, the Geographical and Historical Grammar notes the existence of New Holland only in a postscript entitled "New Discoveries": &#39;New Holland, an exceedingly large island in the Southern part of the Indian Ocean, upon the Eastern shore of which, at Botany Bay, the British have, with these few years, begun a new settlement&#39;. This statement is followed by a list of Pacific Ocean discoveries and advice to consult the Geographical Dictionary for further information. The Dictionary, here in its 1804 edition, includes folding maps of Australasia and Polynesia, with individual listings of numerous new discoveries in the Pacific. Whilst there are very brief entries for Botany Bay and New Holland, New Zealand, Otaheite, and "Papous, Land of" (Papua), there is a very detailed entry for the Sandwich Islands, including information about the history and geography of the islands, the native inhabitants, their culture and language.

        An Account of the English Colony in New South Wales

      1798-, London 1802 - Two volumes, quarto, engraved plates, complete, the first volume with 18 full-page plates and 4 engravings in the text, the second as issued with 5 full-page plates (3 with original hand-colouring) and 4 engravings in the text (2 with original hand-colouring); some toning, but a most attractive set in period-style speckled calf, spines beautifully tooled in gilt, red morocco labels and smaller lozenges for the volume numbers. Collins' marvellous account, with the uncommon second volume, which prints the first major account of Bass & Flinders. The complete first edition, published in two volumes four years apart, of David Collins's Account, the earliest history of Australia as an English colony and the most detailed of all descriptions of the voyage and first settlement, illustrated by fine engravings almost certainly after Thomas Watling. The 1798 first volume is scarce but the 1802 second volume is much more difficult to find and is of the greatest importance for its detailed chronicle of events and its narrative of voyages and expeditions of discovery, notably as regards the early explorations of Bass and Flinders. In its complete two-volume state, Collins's Account may be the rarest of the First Fleet journals. Collins was Judge Advocate who was also Secretary to Governor Phillip and his close personal friend. Collins stayed on in the colony after Phillip's departure to assist Grose and Paterson, who supervised the colony before the arrival in 1795 of Hunter, Phillip's successor. Collins left New South Wales in 1796 and completed his Account, which was based on his daily recording of events, in the following two years. The second volume, published in 1802, continues the narrative of the colony up until the departure of Governor Hunter, and includes a detailed report of the expedition of Bass and Flinders. It also includes the first published report of the koala, the earliest sighting of a wombat on mainland Australia, and the first report of the lyrebird, all three of which are illustrated in hand-coloured plates.

        Monographia Apum Angliae ; or, an attempt to divide into their Natural Genera and Families, such species of the Linnean Genus Apis as have been discovered in England?

      Printed for the Author by J. Raw, Ipswich 1802 - Two volumes bound in one, octavo, 18 plates (4 with original hand-colouring), half-titles and errata leaf, bookplate; an attractive work in early polished tan half calf, banded spine with morocco label. Australian bees collected by Sir Joseph Banks. A lovely copy of the first edition of this fundamental study of bees: this is one of only a small number of books noted by Musgrave, including those of Lewin and Donovan, published before 1805 to include notice of any Australian insects. Kirby, a keen entomologist, based a significant amount of his work on his access to the Banks collection ('has omitted no opportunity of consulting? the magnificent collection of Sir Joseph Banks, so liberally open to naturalists?'), including making comparison with specimens from the Endeavour voyage. Kirby (1759-1850) was born in Suffolk, and famously collaborated with W. Spence on the Introduction to Entomology. This is the first of his works to include any Australian specimens, although he would later jointly publish work based on collections made by Robert Brown. The actual Australian specimens from his collection were presented by the Entomological Society of London to the British Museum in 1863. Kirby's study includes a very good bibliography, noticing the works of Donovan, Fabricius, Latreille, Panzer, Roemer and other entomologists. The most relevant entry is Kirby's notice of the Melitta cyanura from the cabinet of Banks 'from New South Wales', and which 'should come next to M. signata (y), which stands with it in the same cabinet, from the same country' (Volume I, p. 212).
