        Etudes de Daufinel ou Pie-d'Alouette

      Vilquin, Paris 1805 - An exquisite plate of two delphinium sprays from arguably the most beautiful botanical work ever produced: "a work of outstanding importance and interest". Contemporary with the work of Redouté, 'Collection des Fleurs et des Fruits' is one of the earliest examples of stipple engraved and colour-printed botanical illustration. Published in 12 cahiers (or parts) of 4 plates each, the work was compiled to assist designers of porcelain and fabric, with the plates often showing flowers grouped together, usually matched according to their flowering season. The greatest collection of flower books to be sold at auction in the 20th century was the de Belder collection, sold by Sotheby's in 1987. The catalogue was intended as a true reflection of the uniqueness of the collection, and the cover illustration selected to represent the best of the best was an image from Prevost's 'Collection des Fleurs et des Fruits'. Dunthorne describes it as, "a work of outstanding importance and interest.issued for the specific purpose of maintaining the great French tradition for excellence of design and draughtsmanship. Perhaps no other prints are more worthy of carrying on the tradition of Jean Baptiste and van Spaendonck than these fine examples of Prévost. Whether bouquets or sprays of flowers or fruit, they possess a splendour and freshness amounting almost to fragrance, which is largely due to the quality of the colour printing" (Dunthorne, p. 33). Cf. Dunthorne p. 229; cf. Great Flower Books (1990), p. 127; cf. Nissen BBI 1568; cf. Pritzel 7332; cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 8319. Stipple engraving, printed in colours and finished by hand by Ruotte.

        The Life and Pontificate of Leo the Tenth

      Liverpool: J. McCreery, 1805. Four volumes, quarto, engraved frontispiece portraits of Pope Leo, Aldus, Luther and Raphael, with half-titles; the frontispieces offsetting onto title-pages, occasional foxing and slight rubbing but generally an excellent set in contemporary marbled calf, gilt, double labels, Leo X. First edition of Roscoe's great life of the Medici pope Leo X. Born Giovanni de' Medici, Leo X's papacy (1513 to 1521) had enormous influence on geopolitics in the Age of Discovery. His relationship with King Manuel of Portugal (see previous item) was critical - their relationship was cemented by King Manuel's gift of Hanno, an albino elephant, on Leo's accession to the papacy. The last non-priest to be appointed Pope, he is supposed to have remarked to his brother "since God has given us the papacy, let us enjoy it": one of the features of his enjoyment was a series of processions round Rome, almost always featuring Hanno in the parade of exotic animals, many of them gifts from the Portuguese monarch. Leo X was the second son of Lorenzo de' Medici, and a patron of learning and the arts who secured a prominent place in the history of culture. His was a "golden age" but he is also remembered as the pope during whose pontificate Protestantism first took form. There have been several editions of this extensive biography, still the standard life of Leo X, the most recent appearing in 1973.

He was, as he writes, 'induced by curiosity' because 'the accounts hitherto published of this island had been extremely imperfect; as the watchful jealousy of the Dutch both excluded the researches of strangers, and prevented their own people from publishing any observations.. '. He had a pronounced hatred of the cruelty of Dutch rule. In 1800 he joined General Macdowal's embassy to the court of Candy and gives a valuable report of this happening. In his description of pearl fishery he brings to life the extravaganza, the customs and superstitions of the fisherman and the dangers of the deep. Among the plates i.a. a view on the fort of Batacolo, elephant hunting, and the Cinnamon gardens near Columbo. - A fine copy.Goonetileke 35a (mentions erroneously 4 instead of 3 charts).

        A Short Account of the Cause of the Disease in Corn.

      printed for J. Harding, London 1805 - Octavo, 32 pp. including the half-title, with a folding plate; some waterstaining in lower part of most pages, mostly marginal, otherwise a good copy with the half-title in "Mackaness" morocco, with the Mackaness bookplate. Sir Joseph Banks in print. One of remarkably few works published by Banks, but an apt demonstration of his wide range of scientific interest. The problems of blight in wheat and corn were a considerable problem for farmers both in England and abroad, including Australia: 'The climate of the British Isles is not the only one that is liable to the Blight in Corn? Specimens received from the Colony of New South Wales shew that considerable mischief was done to the wheat crop there in the year 1803 by a parasitic plant, very similar to the English one' (p.19). Banks wrote this as a supplement for the fourth edition of Curtis's Practical Observations on the British Grasses, 1805, where it appeared with a separate title-page; however that printing, which has a different imprint, ran to only 14 pp. Carter (Sir Joseph Banks? guide to biographical and bibliographical sources, p. 172) identifies a separate printing like ours, but it has a different publisher (Bulmer). Ferguson notes the Curtis edition (399a) but does not record any separate publication. The folding plate comprises eight figures, all based on original drawings by Francis Bauer, Ferdinand Bauer's elder brother.

        The Right Honourable Francis Rawdon Hastings, Earl of Moira, Commander of His Majesty's Forces in Scotland

      - London: 1 May 1805. Mezzotint portrait engraved by Clint after Shee. Engraved area (including lettering): 28 x 18 inches. Sheet size: 29 1/2 x 19 1/2 inches. (Minor foxing, light mat burn, minor repair in the upper margin along the platemark). Scarce portrait of a noted British officer who served with distinction in the American Revolution. Francis Edward Rawdon-Hastings, 1st Marquess of Hastings (1754-1826), Irish-British politician and military officer, served in the American Revolution, seeing action at Lexington and Concord and Bunker Hill. At the latter battle, he is said to have killed the American General Warren himself, and is depicted in John Trumbull's famous painting The Death of General Warren. His service continued in America throughout the war, as aide-de-camp to General Howe, and with significant command in the southern campaign. He would later serve as the Governor General of India from 1813-1823. In this scarce full-length portrait, Lord Rawdon is standing facing front but looking away to the left, with his right hand extended holding a scroll, his left hand holding a sheathed sword just below the hilt. Wearing a military uniform with two buttons fastened across the chest, the background is an interior with table littered in papers, scroll, books, and a plumed hat behind to right; a classical façade with columns and Greco-Roman military statues in niches in the background to left. First state, marked "first fifty" in the lower left. A second edition would be published with new lettering in 1813. Scarce. Not in Chaloner Smith.

      O. O., um 1805.. Hs. d. Zt. 3½ SS. auf Doppelblatt. Folio.. "Die Freude, mit der Sie meine Herrn mich bey meiner Rückkunft bewillkom[m]ten, war mir ein Beweiß [!] Ihrer erfüllten Pflichten, Mein Dank, und der des ganzen Landes sey Ihr Dank dafür. Welch eine unändliche [!] Reise von geräuschvollen Begebenheiten haben sich während dieses Zeitraumes meiner Abwesenheit auf einander gedrängt [...] Die politische Lage Rußlands, so wie die des ganzen Europas droht sich durch die leidige Krisis Teutoniens zu ändern. Schon ist Oesterreich außer Stand gesetzt, den Platz, welcher ihm eigenthümlich gebührte[,] auszufüllen, schon ist es traurig genug dahingekommen, daß dieses Haus jede Demüthigung, die ihr [!] der Feind zufügen will, sich gefallen lassen muß, seine Vormauern sind in den Händen des Feindes, schwerlich wird es selbe zurückerhalten [...]". Nach einer kurzen Ausführung über Österreichs Verhältnis zu Deutschland und Deutschlands zu Rußland führt der Zar Näheres über Rußland aus: "Wir aber wissen, daß in diesem Raume [d. i. Rußland] 40 Millionen Menschen wohnen, und daß jährlich 1½ Millionen mehr geboren werden als sterben. Wir dürfen aber nicht allein die Menschen nach ihrer Anzahl, sondern vielmehr nach den physisch-moralischen Kräften [...] betrachten. Und welch ein Uibergewicht zeigt sich nicht hier über Europa. Versunken in Sorglosigkeit sehen wir jetzt beinahe die ganze Welt in Ketten schmachten, die sie sich selbst angelegt hat, Luxus heißt die Kette, die zwar eine Art schimmernder Kenntnüße [?!] in Ihrem Gefolge hat, die aber Krebsartig um sich greift, Reiche stürtzet, Natzionen begräbt [...]".
