        Maenura Superba [Lyre Bird]

      Cadell and Davies, London 1802 - Handcoloured engraving, 267 x 200 mm.; good, mounted. After Thomas Watling. Fine hand-coloured impression of this famous depiction of the "Maenura Superba" or Superb Lyre Bird. The present engraving which was published in David Collins' An Account of the English Colony in New South Wales (see catalogue no. XX) is thought to be after a sketch by the convict artist Thomas Watling. Watling arrived on board the Royal Admiral in October 1792, whereupon he was assigned to the surgeon John White as an artist. When White left the colony in 1794 Watling was attached to the Judge Advocate General David Collins, and it is known that many - if not all - of the plates in Collins' work were after his originals. In the text accompanying the lyre bird plate it merely comments that it is 'from the pencil of a capital artist.'.

        Iris plicata / Iris plissée [Pleated Iris]

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

        Sacripant by Rockingham. The property of The Honble. J W Coventry, beating Mr Whaley's Tuneful & Mr. Ladbroke's Chuckle, over Epsom Odds at starting 10 to 1 against Sacripant after the Start, 2 to 1 on him, Sacripant was rode by Mr Samuel Barnard, Tuneful by Mr W Cliff & Chuckle by Mr Dennis Fitzpatrick

      Harding, London 1802 - Aquatint, coloured by hand, on laid paper (watermark '1802') (Publication line at foot of plate shaved with slight loss, some expertly repaired tears to margins). An anonymous work of quality. Unusually, the present work does not include either the artist responsible for the original or the engraver who worked on the plate. The publication line is very faint: sometimes an indication of a later issue, but the early watermark does not support this. None of the standard reference works include either this print or mention of the horse Sacripant. This suggests that this image is rare, and the absence of names allied with the early watermark may indicate some sort of proof issue. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Bibliotheca Fageliana. A Catalogue of the valuable and extensive Library of the Greffier Fagel, of the Hague

      which will be sold by Auction, by Mr. Christie...on Monday, March 1, 1802, and the Twenty-nine following Days. xii, 490 pp. 8vo, cont. calf (well-rebacked to match), gilt fillet round sides, spine gilt, green morocco lettering piece on spine. London: Printed at Barker & Son, 1802. A rare auction catalogue; the collection was purchased before the sale en bloc by Trinity College, Dublin. The Fagel library, formed over the course of almost two centuries by a politically powerful Dutch family, today is one of the most important collections at Trinity College, Dublin. "The Fagel library was the product of a century of rich Amsterdam taste, remarkable fo its large collection of maps and of European topography and views, though its ten thousand political pamphlets may have been the principal attraction for the College. Traditional Dutch interest in gardens was represented by de luxe copies of botanical works with the plates illuminated and the titles lettered in gold, and by volumes of drawings of flowers by Nicolas Robert and of tulips by a native artist, the latter annotated with the prices paid for Semper Augustus and other varieties during the tulip mania."-Hobson, Great Libraries, pp. 180-82. "While Henrik Fagel, Greffier or Chief Minister of Holland, was in England on a diplomatic mission during the winter of 1794-95, his country was overrun by French revolutionary forces, preventing his return to his family and home in The Hague. Initially his property was sequestrated but it was released by mid 1798, and his art collections and library were shipped to London where Fagel, in straightened financial circumstances, had determined to sell them. Through the good offices of John Foster, Speaker of the Irish House of Commons and later described as 'the original proposer of the scheme', money was made available in May 1798 by the Erasmus Smith Charity in Dublin for the purchase of the library for Trinity. There was a delay in putting this scheme into effect and Fagel determined to sell it by public auction, the sale to start on 1 March 1802. The catalogue of almost 10,000 lots...created a sensation and must have galvanized the Dublin party, for they made a successful bid for the entire library in February. On 6 March the Erasmus Smith Charity released enough funds to cover Fagel's asking price of 8000 pounds sterling and the cost of transportation."-Vincent Kinane, "The Fagel Collection" in Trinity College Dublin (ed. by Peter Fox), Dublin, [1986], p. 158-(& see the rest of the article). This catalogue documents the fact that London, along with Paris, was increasingly considered to be the principal book auction center (Amsterdam had fallen behind. The Dutch heirs of this vast library had it shipped to Christie's, in spite of the cost. Very good copy from the library of Prof. T.A. Birrell. .

        The Royal Review at Hatfield Herts June 13 1800

      Livesay, Portsea 1802 - Colour-printed aquatint with hand-coloring. A brilliant panorama of a patriotic convocation during the Napoleonic Wars As George III raises his hat, seated upon a white horse and the rest of the Royal Family watches from carriages, the smartly uniformed volunteer troops of Hertfordshire march and ride through Hatfield Park. Painted in 1800 by Richard Livesay (1750-1823), the aquatint print was done by J. C. Stadler and published in 1802. The parade seems to stretch on for miles, though the military display seems to be somewhat secondary to the beautiful rolling landscape in the distance and Hatfield House, symbol of British stability and ascendency. By 1802, fighting the French to preserve Britannia had become a perpetual task for every generation since William and Mary. And of course enthusiasm for it had to be constantly re-ignited by demonstrations of the glamour of soldiery and war, and reminders of the greatness and loveliness of England. Livesay's print does all of these things extremely well, giving us an elevated view of the King and family, row upon row of earnest young men in dress uniforms and an infinite landscape.
