        Lilium Chalcedonicum / Lis de Chalcedoine [Red Turk's Cap] [Pl. 276]

      Paris: Imprimerie de Didot jeune, 1802-16. Stipple engraving, printed in colour and finished by hand, engraved by Langlois. 20 3/8 x 13 5/8 inches. 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.

        Girl and Pigs

      London: J. & J. Boydell, 1 May 1802. Stipple engraving, printed in colours, with touches of hand-colouring, by Ogborne & Gaugain. 9 1/4 x 12 1/2 inches. 12 x 14 1/4 inches approx. Gold leaf frame. A charmingly observed rural scene, largely colour-printed. A fine example of a stipple- engraved coloured print based on one of Westall's 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). During the early days of the Romantic era, there was a great upsurge of interest in rural life, both in France and England. This was largely a middle class idealization due to its loss of contact with the natural world, and it has become a recurrent theme ever since. The little girl pouring water for the pigs is not at all offended by her menial task, she is enjoying her role in providing nourishment of the obviously eager pigs; and in her white and red clothing and pink cheeks, she looks rather cherubic.

        C 1802 Manuscript Legal Document Concerning Alexander Hamilton

      Document states: "Queens county Common Pleas Whitehead Cornwell vs. Isaac Hendrickson Plea And the said Whitehead by Alexander Hamilton his Attorney comes and defends the force and injury when (?) and Says that he is not guilt of the said trespass as the said Isaac above complains against him and of this he puts himself upon the Country and the said Isaac likewise Hamilton for Def't Queens County for Whitehead Cornwell puts him in his place Alexnder Hamilton his Attorney at the suit of Isaac Hendrickson in the plea aforesaid" (on back) "Queens County Com. Pleas Whitehead Cornwell vs Isaac Hendrickson Plea Hamilton Atty." (and in another hand) "with leave by consent to give the special matter in evidence."; 6 3/4" x 8" approx. size; no date but circa 1802; Alexander Hamilton (1755 or 1757-1804) American statesman; light browning along old fold lines; very good condition. Interesting documentation of an Alexander Hamilton case. Comparison of signatures from other documents does not conclusively indicate that this is his writing hand, nevertheless this piece is certainly worthy of further research; we note a small reference in the Aaron Burr papers to a Whitehead Cornwell and the Library of Congress Hamilton papers show the case as part of his legal history; perhaps there is a connection here between these two men and to Hamilton and his subsequent death in the duel that ended his life.. Very Good.
