        La Perruche Arimanon, Pl. 65

      Paris 1805 - Jacques Barraband’s (1767-1809) engravings of birds are masterpieces of French ornithological illustration. This stunning portrait, La Perruche Arimanon, Pl. 65, measures 13.75" x 10.25 and is in excellent condition with cropped edges. This engraving was done for the distinguished ornithologist Francois Levaillant, who commissioned Barraband to illustrate his landmark works on African ornithology, including the lavish and striking “Histoire Naturelle des Perroquets”. This bird, commonly called a Violet Lorikeet or Tahitian Lory is expertly hand-colored with a white face and chest and rich blue from head to tail-feather. Precise lines define and detail each feather on this small birds body, giving it dimension and definition. Images of African birds were popular in early 19th-century France both for their exoticism and for the interest in Africa that Napoleon’s campaigns were generating. The collaboration of Levaillant and Barraband represented a departure from previous ornithological texts in its emphasis on beauty and luxury, with sumptuously colored and flawlessly rendered birds. The project was a massive undertaking, which required over 300 finished watercolors. Apart from their undoubted beauty, Barraband’s engravings display a scientific accuracy that few ornithological artists have matched since. The meticulous hand-colored engravings in Levaillant’s publications were unmatched for the delicate modulations of tone and color, fine lines and perfect draftsmanship, making them exceptional in their richness and tonal variation.

        COSTUME OF CHINA

      1805. ALEXANDER, William. THE COSTUME OF CHINA, ILLUSTRATED IN FORTY-EIGHT COLOURED ENGRAVINGS. London: William Miller, 1805. Aquatint dedication leaf, followed by the title leaf, a 'List of Subsrcibers' [2] ff., 48 hand- colored aquatint plates interleaved with [48] leaves of descriptive letterpress printed on rectos only, and an 'Index' leaf with directions to the binder. This copy lacks the half-title and the dedication has been bound in its place. Besides costumes, the plates show cities, habitations, temples, boats, etc. Quarto, 33 x 25.5 cm, contemporary light brown, straight grain morocco with gilt borders on sides, gilt decoration and title on spine, gilt inner dentelles, a.e.g. Ex library, but with minimal markings: a small 'withdrawn from collection' stamp on recto and verso of ffep., a perforated stamp and small ink stamp to t.p., and a small ink stamp on first text page. Binding is worn at edges, rubbed along joints, and shows small loss at either end of spine. The first text leaf is moderately spotted; otherwise there is only occasional light spotting and offsetting to some text leaves, and very light spotting to a very few plates. William Alexander (1767-1816) is best remembered for his work on China in a period in which the Chinese style greatly influenced the decorative arts in Britain. He travelled to China as draughtsman with Lord Macartney's Embassy to the Emperor in 1792-4. Besides the present work, his drawings illustrative of the expedition were engraved for the official record: G. Staunton's An Authentic Account of an Embassy from the King of Great Britain to the Emperor of China, 1797, and another of his own publications, Views of the Headlands, Islands, etc. (1798). His designs were also used for the aquatints in John Barrow's A Voyage to Cochin China, in the Years 1792, and 1793 (1806). (Oxford DNB; Abbey Travel, 534; Tooley English Books, 18; Cordier Sinica III, 1858-9).

The coloring was done with great care and precision. Morell claimed to be merely collecting the tales from the Indian subcontinent (thus he is credited on the title page merely as the translator from Persian) when in fact he made up the stories himself, inspired by The Arabian Nights, to be sure. The work was first published in 1764, at a time the public was smitten with exotic Orientalia. Rubbing along the joints, and light wear to the cover otherwise.

        Le Perroquet à calotte bleue. No. 121.

      Langlois Paris 1805 - Stipple engraving, printed in colours and finished by hand, with good strong colour, some spotting. Dimensions: platemark 330 by 260 (13 by 10.25 inches), sheet 460 by 310 mm. (18 by 12 1/4 inches). From Levaillant's Histoire Naturelle des Perroquets, which is considered the most comprehensive and complete catalogue on the subject. This magnificent work includes some of the most lively and colorful bird illustrations ever created. They capture not only the defining characteristics of the species, but also the charming personality of the individual bird. This exquisite monograph was written by Francois Levaillant, an adventurer and natural historian, who was one of the first to record sightings of Australian parrots. Barrband's skill was greatly esteemed and his name lent cachet to the sumptious work authored by Levaillant. Barraband's brilliantly colored engravings of exotic birds coupled with Levaillant's precise descriptions represent the height of realistic bird art. Jacques Barraband achieved great artistic notoriety for his work at the Gobelin tapestry works, the Sevres porcelain factory, and the palace of St. Cloud before coming to work for the French naturalist Francois Levaillant in the early years of the nineteenth century. Barraband collaborated with Louis Bouquet and Langlois to create the engravings for this work. The plates were carefully inked a la poupee with brilliant colors and pulled from the press. Nuances were then added by hand. In his work, Barraband often shows his subject in profile perched on a short tree branch. No other artist equalled his mastery in the rendering of feathers, in evoking their fragility, stiffness or incredible lightness. He displays a preference for harmonies of blues and greens, and reds and yellows. The evocative power of these realistic and precise bird renderings, that feature all the colors of the rainbow, is striking. Fine Bird Books p.118; Nissen IVB 558; Zimmer p.392.

        CORSO DI GEOGRAFIA UNIVERSALE. Sviluppato in cento lezioni e diviso in tre grandi parti / ATLANTE DI GEOGRAFIA UNIVERSALE. Per servire al Corso di Geografia Universale.

      per V.Batelli e CompagniOpera completa in sei volumi di testo + un Atlante. Cm.25,2x17,8. Pg.XII,344; 712; 404; 588; 432; 508. I sei volumi di testo presentano legature coeve in mz.pelle con titoli e fregi in oro ai dorsi e piatti marmorizzati. Il testo si suddivide in tre parti: la prima parte tratta del rapporto tra la Terra e l'Universo e della Cosmografia, la seconda tratta della Geografia fisica e la terza della Storia dell'Umanità. Anche l'Atlante, in formato cm.43,5x28, è legato in mz.pelle, con spellature alla marmorizzatura dei piatti. Esso è "preceduto da un vocabolario de' nomi tecnici della geografia, corredato di specchi statistici delle divisioni politiche della terra, ed arricchito d'illustrazioni e di una bilancia politica del globo" e contiene 65 carte a piena pagina oppure doppie, triple o quadruple, quasi tutte acquarellate a mano. La prima parte, "Cosmografia", consta di 14 carte; la seconda, "Geografia fisica", contiene 15 carte ed è così suddivisa: "Disegni del globo o mappamondi, in proiezioni diverse", "Tratti diversi della superficie dei continenti e la comparata altezza dei monti e la lunghezza delle correnti dei fiumi", "Ordine e stato dei terreni e delle roccie componenti la corteccia del globo", "Ipotetico stato del globo nelle sue diverse età e geografia dei vulcani accesi ed estinti", "Rosa dei venti". Segue la "Storia della geografia dai tempi biblici ed omerici infino alla scoperta del Nuovo Continente", con nove carte suddivise in: "Sistemi geografici di Eratostene, Strabone, Tolomeo, Pomponio", "Terra secondo gli Arabi, cognizioni geografiche dei Cristiani circa il 1300, itinerari delle Crociate". La quarta parte comprende "Geografia Statistica: Bilancia politica del globo e saggio di statistica di alcuni reami d'Europa", con 30 carte geografiche con bandiere dei vari paesi colorate a mano. La tavola della Rosa dei venti" è realizzata manualmente. Gli Atlanti del Batelli presentano spesso difficoltà di collazione, ma un provvidenziale "Indice dell'Atlante ed Avvertimento per il rilegatore del medesimo" in fine al volume ne attesta la reale collocazione. Si tratta probabilmente dell'opera più compiuta di Francesco Costantino Marmocchi (Poggibonsi, 1805 - 1858), rinomato geografo e cartografo. Di simpatie mazziniane, partecipò ai moti del 1831, quando venne incarcerato. Nel 1848 divenne Deputato nel Parlamento toscano, per poi ricoprire la carica di Segretario agli Interni sotto Guerrazzi. Viaggiò a lungo assieme al Gregorovius in Corsica, ove compì molti studi geografici.

        COSTUME OF CHINA

      1805 - ALEXANDER, William. THE COSTUME OF CHINA, ILLUSTRATED IN FORTY-EIGHT COLOURED ENGRAVINGS. London: William Miller, 1805. Aquatint dedication leaf, followed by the title leaf, a 'List of Subsrcibers' [2] ff., 48 hand- colored aquatint plates interleaved with [48] leaves of descriptive letterpress printed on rectos only, and an 'Index' leaf with directions to the binder. This copy lacks the half-title and the dedication has been bound in its place. Besides costumes, the plates show cities, habitations, temples, boats, etc. Quarto, 33 x 25.5 cm, contemporary light brown, straight grain morocco with gilt borders on sides, gilt decoration and title on spine, gilt inner dentelles, a.e.g. Ex library, but with minimal markings: a small 'withdrawn from collection' stamp on recto and verso of ffep., a perforated stamp and small ink stamp to t.p., and a small ink stamp on first text page. Binding is worn at edges, rubbed along joints, and shows small loss at either end of spine. The first text leaf is moderately spotted; otherwise there is only occasional light spotting and offsetting to some text leaves, and very light spotting to a very few plates. William Alexander (1767-1816) is best remembered for his work on China in a period in which the Chinese style greatly influenced the decorative arts in Britain. He travelled to China as draughtsman with Lord Macartney's Embassy to the Emperor in 1792-4. Besides the present work, his drawings illustrative of the expedition were engraved for the official record: G. Staunton's An Authentic Account of an Embassy from the King of Great Britain to the Emperor of China, 1797, and another of his own publications, Views of the Headlands, Islands, etc. (1798). His designs were also used for the aquatints in John Barrow's A Voyage to Cochin China, in the Years 1792, and 1793 (1806). (Oxford DNB; Abbey Travel, 534; Tooley English Books, 18; Cordier Sinica III, 1858-9).

        Politician John Taylor writes a 2 pp ALS with great political content

      "Dated January 1805 from Albany the letter reads in part, ""I received your favour inclosing the President's speech for this kind attention be pleased to accept of my best thanks, this speech contains both spirit and energy sufficient to appease the resentments and prejudices of the Federalists if reason and propriety could effect it...The Republican form of government must be destroyed and nothing less will answer...I could with the utmost sincerity join in anything proper & honorable to unite the republicans of this state I fear it cannot be easily effected...we will act with firmness & assert the conduct of bellegerants - Great Britain in particular towards us. If they wound our head we can bruise their heel."" A political letter from Masters to George Clinton: "" It having being mentioned several times in debate before the house, that the Administration or some of them had made application to the Secretary of the Treasury for the two millions to purchase the Florida prior to the Session of Congress-this report it was said had come from a respectable Member of Congress from New York. I was conscious I had not mentioned the conversation of Mr. Galatin to any person...Lieb tells me you told him that it was Madison who made the application. I understood it was the President. The substance of Galatin's conversation I understood as follows, that the President thought it a favorable time, & was anxious to make the purchase, and had made application to him for the money (two millions) and trust to Congress to make the appropriation after their meeting. To which he replied to the President that Congress would soon be in Session, and it would be most proper & best to wait until then. Be so kind as to write to me by the next mail what Mr. Galatin's conversation was to you & myself touching that application for the two millions of dollars."""

        MATERIA MEDICA VEGETABILE TOSCANA. Del Dottor Gaetano Savi, Professor di Fisica nell'Università di Pisa. Firenze, Presso Molini, Landi e C., 1805.

      Prima edizione. Cm.37x24. Pg.(8), 56. Seguono 60 tavole botaniche nitidamente incise su rame da G. Canacci su disegni di Baldovino Benvenuti. Legatura in mz.pelle con spellature ai piatti marmorizzati. Tassello con titoli e filetti in oro al dorso. Tagli spruzzati. Il volume presenta doppio frontespizio, cui seguono due dedicatorie, la prima degli Editori "Ai studiosi di Botanica", la seconda dell'Autore alla Signora Elena Brunacci Mastiani nata Amati. Quindi l'Introduzione, con doviziose descrizioni naturalistiche, e l'Indice. Il presente esemplare contiene il quaderno [2 pi greco], che comprende il secondo frontespizio e la dedicatoria degli editori, sovente mancante. Assai nitide, su carta greve, e praticamente prive di fioriture le 60 tavole botaniche. Il naturalista Gaetano Savi (Scarperia, 1769 - 1844), allievo del medico mugellano Antonio Cocchi, frequentò l'Università di Pisa dove si laureò in medicina nel 1795, e dove nel 1802 gli fu conferita la cattedra di fisica sperimentale e successivamente, nel 1810, quella di botanica. Fu anche direttore dell'Orto botanico dell'Ateneo, e la sua opera naturalistica fu continuata dall'insigne figlio Paolo (Pisa, 1798 - 1871). "Veramente notevole quest?opera di Gaetano Savi sulla flora medicinale toscana sia per la bellezza delle calcografie sia per la minuzia delle descrizioni. Insigne botanico, professore all?Università di Pisa, conosceva bene tutta la fisiologia delle piante che troveremo diligentemente descritta nel compendio "Istituzioni botaniche". In questa Flora invece l?autore si limita a presentarci e darci una descrizione fisica di tutte le parti della pianta, a descrivercene le virtù e a proporci alcuni importantissimi riferimenti bibliografici. Vengono citati molto spesso il Ricettario Fiorentino e il Ricettario Senese, nei quali erano stato prese in considerazione le stesse piante endemiche tre secoli prima. Nell?elencazione dei pregi medicinali si può notare che Gaetano Savi fa un costante uso dell?ipotetico e non manifesta convinzioni personali sull?uso popolare medicamentoso: al radicchio, dice, "è stata attribuita la qualità di antisterico, antipocondriaco", La viola "produsse una volta il vomito e cinque o sei mosse di corpo", la saponaria "è stata lodata come diuretica", etc. Sono presentate anche piante soprattutto ornamentali come lo splendida "Iris fiorentina" (dal sito "Aboca Museum").

        A New Edition of Hymns, Anthems, Tunes, and Ode, used at the Magdalen Chapel. Set for the Organ, Piano Forte, Voice, German Flute, or Guitar.

      London: Printed by Clementi & Co. no date ? 1805 - 4to, 235 x 160 mms., pp. 130, engraved throughout with music and text, with index pages at page 1, 41, and [109], contemporary calf, gilt spine (slightly rubbed); joints very slightly cracked, top and base of spine chipped, but a good to very good copy with the bookplate of Harry Colin Miller on the front paste-down end-paper and the autograph "E A Lowe" on the top margin of the title-page. The latter is possibly Elias Avery Lowe (1879 - 1969), the distinguished paleographer. The English firm of music publishers and instrument makers probably started up in the 1790s, went bankrupt in 1789, and re-emerged in conjunction with other publishers and printers. The Magdalen Hospital was founded in 1758, and this is one of many publications of hymns and sacred music associated with it. The first hymn is "Awake my Soul" by Philip Doddrige (1702 - 1751), sometimes sung to music from Handel's opera Ciroë. A manuscript notation of the title page after printed "Book" adds "1 to 4" and also in ms is the price, "10/6". [Attributes: Hard Cover]
