        Insectes recueillis en Afrique et en Amérique, dans les Royaumes d'Oware et de Benin, à Saint-Domingue et dans les États-Unis, pendant les années 1786-1797.

      - Paris, Levrault, An XIII-1805 (-21). Large Folio (460 x 305mm). pp. (4), xvi, 276, with 90 fine colour-printed engraved plates with delicate hand finishing, the plates engraved by J.G. Prêtre and printed by Langlois. In its original disbound leaves preserved in a modern cloth box. First edition of this rare and magnificent work. The first entomological iconography on African insects and a major contibution to early American entomology. Palisot de Beauvois (1752-1820) was a French naturalist and traveller. The present work was published in 15 parts over a period of 16 years, the last part being posthumously published by J.G. Audinet Serville. The superbly executed plates are by J.G. Prêtre, one of the finest artists of the period, and colour printed by Langlois, the great master of colour printing who supervised most of Redouté's best works. Palisot de Beauvois suffered 3 great losses of collections made between the years 1786-1798: most of the Owara and Benin collections (in storage in Owara) were plundered by the British in 1792; his Haitian collections burned along with his house and other belonging in 1793; and most of his U.S. collections were lost at sea in 1798."Palisot published a major entomological work entitled, 'Insectes Recueillis en Afrique et en Amerique'. Palisot’s work is significant because, while some workers had described American beetles before him, he was one of the first to both actively collect and describe American insects along with his contemporary, Fredrick Melsheimer (the elder). In addition to the hundreds of common insects that he described, the work is also notable for his proposed ordinal classification of Insects. A large number of Scarabaeidae are included in this work, many described and/or illustrated for the first time. The total includes 39 species in the genus Scarabaeus, 17 species of Copris, seven species of Trox, four Cetonia and four Trichius. Among these were the first descriptions of such familiar beetles as Canthon viridis (P.B.), Macrodactylus angustatus (P.B.) and Osmoderma scabra (P.B.). A problem, . is that many of the species that Palisot attributed to 'Amérique' were actually collected in 'Afrique', and vice versa. Moreover, he included species, such as Dynastes hercules (L.), which do not occur within the U.S. or Santo Domingo, creating type localities for species that in some cases are outside of their natural range. Because of the French revolution and his former status in the nobility as the Baron de Beauvois, Palisot was unable to return to France without risking the guillotine. Instead he boarded a ship bound for the United States but, en route, was relieved of his remaining belongings by pirates and thus he arrived in Philadelphia penniless and bereft. He was able to make a living by joining a circus as a musician, but he eventually returned to work as a botanist, hired to curate the private collection of C.W. Peale. In Philadelphia he became a member of the American Philosophical Society, published in its Transactions, and resumed his natural history collecting with the financial support of the French Attache, Paul Adet, a scientist in his own right. Palisot’s collecting forays in the United States ranged as far west as the Ohio River and as far south as Savannah, Georgia. When finally notified by colleagues in Paris that his citizenship had been restored, Palisot began making plans for his return to Europe, including arrangements for the shipment of his specimens. Unfortunately, these collections were lost when the ship carrying them sank off the coast of Nova Scotia in 1798. He left the United States that same year and returned to his native France.Based on the material that had survived prior shipments, but mainly on his sketches, Palisot published works on plants and insects, the latter in a series of 15 booklets (livraisons) issued between 1805 and 1821, the last issued one year after his death.

        An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations

      Glasgow - J. & J. Scrymgeour 1805 - A nice clean set of Adam Smith's The Wealth of Nations. Bound in half calf with gilt lettering. Rebound with new endpapers. The first Glasgow edition. Some slight damage to the spine of volumeone as picturedwhich isreadily repairable. Contains a biography of the author in volume one. Adam Smith (1723-1790) was a moral philosopher and political economist. An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations is the magnum opus of Adam Smith and was first published in 1776. It is an account of economics at the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, as well as a rhetorical piece written for the generally educated individual of the 18th century - advocating a free market economy as more productive and more beneficial to society. The Wealth of Nations had no rival in scope or depth when published and is still one of the few works in its field to have achieved classic status, meaning simply that it has sustained yet survived repeated reading, critical and adulatory, long after the circumstances which prompted it have become the object of historical enquiry. - DNBCondition: The bindings are tight and firm. The hinges are cracked. There ismild wear to the extremities, including bumping and some loss. Internally the pages are bright and cleanwith the very occasional scattered foxing only. Overall the condition is very good. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Charlotte Countess of Cholmondeley and the Hon. Henry Cholmondeley

      Published by the engraver, No 50 Warren Street, Fitzroy Square, London 1805 - This stunning print is a rich impression of Charles Turner's mezzotint portrait of the Countess of Cholmondeley and her son after Hoppner. John Hoppner was at the height of his powers at the time he painted Lady Cholmondeley and her son, Henry. The grand aristocratic portrait had been the domain of Sir Joshua Reynolds, carried on by Hoppner, Raeburn and later, Lawrence. Apart from dressing very young boys in dresses, what separates us from this epoch is the sense of noble vulnerability we feel in the countess, who occupies her station graciously and without apology. Georgiana Charlotte Bertie (1764-1838) married George, Earl (later Marquess) of Cholmondeley in 1791. Her calm demeanor, elegance and self-containment epitomise the aristocratic feminine ideal of the period. Henry Cholmondelely (1800-1884) was about four when the painting was done. As Lord Cholmondeley was a moderate Tory at Parliament. Charles Turner was an outstanding engraver who throughout his memorable career produced an array of wonderful images. Born in Oxfordshire, Turner moved to London in 1795, at which time he was employed by the famous engraver and publisher Boydell. Turner was a versatile engraver working in stipple and aquatint as well as mezzotint. Although Turner produced a wide array of excellent prints in subjects ranging from topography to genre, his main artistic focus was portraiture. Throughout his career he produced more than six hundred plates, of which about two-thirds were portraits. Turner was a close friend of J.M.W. Turner, and engraved many of the artist's paintings, in addition to engraving some plates for 'Liber Studiorum'. The work of Charles Turner is highly regarded by print connoisseurs as an engraver who combined technical skill with an artistic imagination to create beautiful enduring images.

        Zwei Entwurfskizzen mit sitzender Mutter beim Vorlesen mit zwei andächtig lauschenden Kindern.

      . Schwarze Kreide, weiß gehöht, je mit schwarzer Kreide gerahmt (rechts beschnitten) und oben rundbogig abgeschlossen, links unten Proben farbiger Kreide, auf blauem Velin. 15,4:18,9 cm. In den Rändern ungleich beschnitten, Knickfalte am linken Rand, verso am Oberrand Reste alter Verklebung. Provenienz: Sammlung H. Geller, Dresden.. Die Porträt- und Historienmalerin Caroline Bardua war u.a. in Weimar, Dresden und Berlin tätig. Ihre künstlerische Ausbildung erhielt sie ab 1805 an der Weimarer Malerschule, wo sie Schülerin von H. Meyer (1760-1832) war. In Weimar schloß sie sich dem Kreis um Goethe, Wieland und Johanna Schopenhauer an. 1808 ging sie nach Dresden und wurde Schülerin von F.G. von Kügelgen (1772-1820). In dieser Zeit befreundete sie sich mit C.D. Friedrich (1774-1840), den sie mehrfach porträtierte; Friedrich selbst besuchte sie 1811 in Ballenstedt. In diesem Jahr schloß sie auch Bekanntschaft mit der Fürstin von Zerbst und deren Schwester, der Prinzessin Christine von Sondershausen, die beide ihren Witwensitz im Schloß zu Coswig hatten. Die Schwestern richteten ihr ein Atelier im Schloß ein, ein Porträt der Prinzessin Christine zeugt u.a. von diesem Aufenthalt. Anschließend reiste sie mit ihrer Schwester Wilhelmine (1798-1865), die Carolines Leben literarisch festhielt, durch Deutschland, widmete sich der Porträtmalerei und dem Kopieren berühmter Meisterwerke. In Berlin seit 1819, wo sie als eine der angesehensten Porträtistinnen bekannt war und zeitweise für den preußischen Königshof arbeitete, beteiligte sie sich zwischen 1822 und 1840 mehrfach an den Akademie-Ausstellungen. Zu Barduas bekanntesten Porträts zählen das von Christiane von Goethe, geb. Vulpius, sowie ein Bildnis von Johanna Schopenhauer. Zu nennen sind außerdem zwei Bildnisse von Goethe, Porträts des Violinisten Paganini, des Komponisten Carl Maria von Weber oder des Dichters Hans Christian Andersen.
