        Fox Hunting. La Chasse au Renard

      Edward Orme, London 1807 - A fine image from 'Orme's Collection of British Field Sports': "the finest and most important sporting book of the last two centuries" (Schwerdt) Samuel Howitt, "genius, artist, sportsman", concentrated his considerable artistic talents on picturing scenes of horse-racing and hunting in all its aspects. Born in Nottinghamshire, England, Howitt was largely self-taught ,"although he must have been helped by his companions George Morland, Rowlandson and John Raphael Smith. Howitt's watercolours of hunting, shooting and racing have delightful spontaneity. An enthusiastic sportsman himself, he had sufficient family money to paint at first only for his own and his friends' pleasure. However, this fortune was quickly dissipated and Howitt moved to London. [He made a living], partly by etching at which he was extremely skilled. As an artist he was prolific. more than 150 of his designs were published in The Sporting Magazine. He illustrated Beckford's Thoughts on Hunting, and other books, including Orme's Collection of British Field Sports . The light touch of his pen, the delicacy of his brushwork and his experience of field sports ensured all that he drew was animated and accurate." (Charles Lane British Racing Prints pp.132-133). Cf. Abbey Scenery 14; Lane British Sporting Prints p.133; Mellon British Sporting and Animal Drawings p.106; Siltzer p.164; cf. Schwerdt II, p.53; Siltzer p.164; cf.Tooley 273. Aquatint engraving, coloured by hand, by Thomas Vivares and Henri Merke. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The American Aloe

      London 1807 - The most strikingly beautiful flower plates ever to be printed in England. The present plate was issued as a substitute for an earlier plate titled The Aloe by Thornton ".as the plant shown is not an aloe but an agave [Agave Americana L.]. Aloes are natives of the Old World, their native home being Africa: agaves, though similar in appearance, are inhabitants of the New World. Neither is found wild in the other's territory. Thornton realized his mistake, or had it pointed out to him, [and the present plate was published]. Agaves are, however, familiar under another name as they are the well-known `Century Plants' which are supposed to live a hundred years before flowering, the whole plant dying when the flower-spike decays. In fact, they have been known to flower as early as seven years of age and seldom take longer than twenty-five years. When they flower in glasshouses in the colder countries they present a problem as the flower-spike may rise to thirty feet or more, making it necessary to take out a pane of the roof glass to let the inflorescence rise into the open air. Agave Americana. is often used for making hedges in warmer climates and a variegated form is also much grown as a specimen plant in such countries." (Ronald King, The Temple of Flora by Robert Thornton, 1981, p.70). Thornton's Temple of Flora is the greatest English colour-plate flower book. ".[Thornton] inherited a competent fortune and trained as a doctor. He appears to have had considerable success in practice and was appointed both physician to the Marylebone Dispensary and lecturer in medical botany at Guy's and St. Thomas's hospitals.But quite early in his career he embarked on his.great work.What Redouté produced under the patronage of L'Héritier, Marie Antoinette, the Empress Josephine, Charles X and the Duchesse de Berry, Thornton set out to do alone. Numerous important artists were engaged. twenty-eight paintings of flowers commissioned from Abraham Pether, known as `Moonlight Pether', Philip Reinagle, . Sydenham Edwards, and Peter Henderson.The result.involved Thornton in desperate financial straits.In an attempt to extricate himself he organized the Royal Botanic Lottery, under the patronage of the Prince Regent.it is easy to raise one's eyebrows at Thornton's unworldly and injudicious approach to publishing. But he produced.one of the loveliest books in the world" (Alan Thomas Great Books and Book Collecting , pp.142-144). First and only state of this plate from the Temple of Flora. Hand-coloured and colour-printed aquatint and line engraving by Medland.

        Voyage de découvertes dans la partie septentrionale de l'ocean Pacifique...pendant les années 1795, 1796, 1797 et 1798

      Paris: Dentu, 1807. Two volumes, octavo, with seven folding maps and views, very good in contemporary polished calf. First French edition of an important late-eighteenth century voyage to Nootka via New South Wales, the Pacific and Hawaii, in a handsome French binding of the period. Captain William Robert Broughton (1763-1821) served as a midshipman in the American Revolutionary War before joining Vancouver's exploration of the Pacific and northwest coast. Broughton first commanded the Chatham during his service under Vancouver, followed by the Providence (formerly used by Bligh on his second and successful breadfruit voyage). In early 1795 Broughton departed from England in the Providence, with the intention of joining Vancouver in Nootka Sound. The rendezvous did not eventuate, and Broughton experienced a cool reception from the Spanish upon his arrival in Monterey. Nonetheless, the voyage to Nootka was made by way of Rio de Janeiro, Australia, Tahiti and the Hawaiian Islands. His stop in Australia in August 1795 included a week at Port Stephens where he found four white men whom he described as 'miserable half-starved objects, depending on the hospitality of the natives…'. This narrative also includes a description of a short sojourn at Port Jackson. Broughton spent the following years surveying the coasts of Asia and the islands of Japan and produced important maps of Japan, Korea and Formosa (during which time the Providence was wrecked). This edition includes fine folding maps of Japan, Korea and Taiwan. This French version was based on the 1804 London quarto edition with an additional short supplementary voyage account (Voyage de Laxmann à Matmaï). Forbes notes two states of the title without assigning priority.

Appendix No. 1 gives details on the time and duration of attacks of pain from the disease as observed in individual patients. Vetch (1783-1835) studied at Edinburgh and served for many years as a physician in the army, where he dedicated most of his time in the study and treatment of trachoma.

        A Course of Lectures on Natural Philosophy and the Mechanical Arts

      London: Joseph Johnson, 1807. . Two volumes. First edition. 4to. xxvi, 796; xiv, 738 pp. Recent brown full calf, spine with raised bands, gilt lettered red labels, all edges speckled, an ex-library set, though this is barely evident with the markings discreetly and almost entirely removed, one set of markings remaining partially visible on the verso of the title page of volume I and some of the places where stamps have been removed with consequent thinning of the paper which has been neatly and almost imperceptibly reinforced on the versos. Volume I with 43 plates, including two plates with fine original hand colouring illustrating light theory, volume II with a further 15 plates. An attractive set. Something of a scientific polymath, Thomas Young (1773-1829) was appointed Professor of Natural Philosophy at the Royal Institution while still in his twenties. The lectures he gave during the course form the basis of this work and cover a wide range of subjects: Volume I - mechanics (including motion, forces, architecture, etc.), hydrodynamics (hydraulics, pneumatics, sound, optics etc.) and physics (astronomy, geography, electricity and earth sciences); volume II - mathematics, mechanics and hydrodynamics plus a further 10 miscellaneous papers on various scientific subjects. It is for his study of light, optics and chromatics that Young is best known and many of the papers enclosed touch on differing aspects of these related scientific branches. The two coloured plates further highlight his specific interests.& The second volume also includes a comprehensive catalogue of works on science, each reference with a note as to whether the works were to be found in the libraries of the Royal Institution, the British Museum, the Royal Society or that of its then president, Joseph Banks.& All told, a magnificent work with an encyclopaedic scope.

Nach Anfängen als Konditor ging Adam 1807 nach München, um sich als Maler ausbilden zu lassen. Er wurde durch J.G. vopn Dillis (1759-1841) gefördert und avancierte zum Hofmaler Eugen Beauharnais', dem Vizekönig von Italien und späteren Herzog von Leuchtenberg. 1809 war er am Feldzug gegen Österreich beteiligt und 1812 im Gefolge des Vizekönigs an jenem gegen Rußland. 1815 wählte Adam München zu seinem festen Wohnsitz. 1848/49 nahm er in Begleitung Radetzkys am Felszug gegen Sardinien teil. Wegen seiner qualitätvollen Pferdedarstellungen, Reiterbildnisse und Schlachtenbilder wurde er mit Aufträgen überhäuft. Nicht nur Maximilian I. Joseph und Ludwig I., waren seine Auftraggeber, sondern auch andere deutsche Landesherren und der Kaiser von Österreich, Franz Joseph. Adam gehört neben P. von Hess (1792-1871) ) und W. von Kobell (1766-1855) zu den bedeutendsten Schlachten- und Pferdemalern der 1. Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts. Er war der Stammvater einer Malerdynastie, die bis in die dritte Generation beachtliche Talente hervorbrachte. (Zit. aus: Münchner Maler im 19. Jahrhundert. 5 Bände.

        Autograph letter signed to his father including a full list of goods sent to Botany Bay on board the 'Rose'

      London: 17 September, 1807. Sheet of laid paper, 232 x 370 mm., folded in half and folded to letter-size, a little torn at the original red wax seal, English postmark for 18 September 1807; some browning, but in very good condition and written in a neat professional hand. Fiddling the books to Botany Bay, and sly grog in Tasmania. An important letter offering a very rare account of the goods carried to Botany Bay by the Sydney traders at the height of Governor Bligh's rule: this manifest for the trading vessel Rose provides background to the heated events of the so-called Rum Rebellion, not least because apparent fiddling of the books regarding the cargo of beer and spirits resulted in an investigation by Joseph Foveaux, who found that the crew of the Rose had distributed vast quantities of illicit alcohol among the new settlers on the Derwent. The letter is sent by C.C. Watson to his father William Watson of Warrenhouse in Belford, Northumberland. The two men were heavily involved in trading to Sydney, either working for the famous Sydney trading family the Campbells, or perhaps part-owning the Rose in conjunction with them (the Watsons also had an interest in at least one other vessel, the Spring Grove, as mentioned in this letter). Watson here gives an important snapshot of the trade and particularly of their grand plans: 'Our vessel the Rose sailed the other day from Portsmouth for Botany Bay, and that you may have an idea of what we send to that Colony, I annex you the particulars of her cargo. She is the first ship that has had the honor to be introduced as a regular trader between that Place and this. She certainly is without exception the finest vessel that has sailed out of this Port for a length of time. We expect she will make the voyage outwards in less than four months, which is a remarkable quick Passage.' The Rose, captain Penson, did arrive in Sydney on 15 April 1808, a few months after Governor Bligh had been deposed. As a result, the detailed manifest of goods being sent to Botany Bay (reproduced opposite) is of great interest. The list includes, for instance, £1330.1.5 worth of printed cottons and over £666 worth of 'Glass and Earthenware'. There are enormous amounts of soap, clothing including petticoats and boots, an intriguing entry for a substantial amount of 'painters colours', as well as anchors, lead shot, crucibles, ribbons, candles, confectionery, medicines and stationery. Significantly, the Rose also carried over a thousand pounds sterling worth of 'Porter and Ale' and - the single largest consignment - £1936.3.3 of 'Wine & Spirits'. Indeed, these consignments meant that the Rose was immediately embroiled in the saga of the mutiny against Bligh, as Lieutenant-Colonel Foveaux launched an investigation into reports that the Rose had travelled 'without producing a license from the East India Company', and, equally seriously, that the vessel was reported to have left England with more than eight thousand gallons of spirits, but reported landing only a little more than two thousand. The resulting feud between the acting government and the new ship's captain Richard Brooks escalated into open hostility, and the ship was impounded. More, Bligh himself was incensed that Foveaux planned to send the junior officer James Symons to England on the vessel's return voyage, and wrote imperiously to Foveaux declining to give his consent to allow someone 'deeply implicated in mutiny and other offences' to sail (see Historical Records of New South Wales, vol. VI, pp. 742-753). Captain Brooks finally managed to sail on 15 September 1808.

        Some Account of New Zealand; particularly the Bay of Islands , and surrounding country; with a description of the Religion and Government, Language, Arts, Manufactures, Manners and Customs of the Natives, &c &c

      London: J. Murray, 1807. Octavo, with a frontispiece and two plates (one hand-coloured); occasional foxing, title-page mildly browned and a little marked, paper repair to lower margin of one leaf, overall a very good copy in nineteenth-century quarter roan with marbled boards, spine label and endpapers renewed. The first book solely devoted to New Zealand. Very scarce in any form, this is an example of the rare, preferred issue with the "tiki" plate coloured. Although New Zealand had been visited by Cook, the French navigator Marion du Fresne, William Bligh and dozens of sealers, timber gatherers and whalers, it was John Savage, a surgeon who arrived in New South Wales in 1803 (and who introduced vaccination to the colony), who would write the first account. Savage travelled to New Zealand in 1805 as surgeon on a returning convict ship: they spent two months in the Bay of Islands (his book includes sailing directions into the Bay of Islands) and returned to England in 1806. In the manner of other early visitors to the Pacific Savage took back a "specimen" - a Maori named Moehanga (Moyhanger), the first New Zealander to visit England. Much of Savage's text is devoted to Moehanga both on the voyage back to England and their stay in London: 'The coach gave him great satisfaction. I asked him how he liked our present situation: he replied, Piannah wurrie nuenue yaieda - Very good house, it walks very fast… Noise or scolding he very much disliked…'. The first illustrations of New Zealand published in Cook's official accounts of his explorations in the Pacific had been drawn primarily from a scientific perspective. Between the British and French wave of eighteenth-century exploration and the post-1816 publications of the Missionary societies, there were only a handful of images published. John Savage himself drew the three illustrations that were prepared as lithographs for his book. These include "A New Zealand deity" or "tiki" which in this copy is found coloured in green. According to Hocken only a few copies contain this handcoloured version of the plate. Savage's rare and important book gives a remarkably interesting first-hand account of the language, manners, arts, government and customs of New Zealand before white settlement. From the collection of Robert Edwards.

        Traité de Topographie, d'arpentage et de nivellement ... [and] Supplément au second livre du Traité de Topographie

      Paris: Chez Courcier, 1807-, 1810. Quarto, two works bound in one, in total seven folding plates and one folding table, some pages age-toned but overall very good, neatly bound in modern quarter calf, Ingleton bookplate and manuscript note. A fine volume containing rare first editions of two French works of surveying, said on good authority to be from Phillip Parker King's library. Present here are both Puissant's original Traité of 1807, and the rarer supplement from 1810. Louis Puissant (1768-1843), was born in the Champagne region of France, and learnt geometry as part of his early training as a land-surveyor. First employed in the French war department in 1790, his ability meant that he worked in difficult regions like the Pyrenees and the island of Elba. Early in his career he wrote and published a book on the subject of the shape of the earth, and from 1809 directed the École de Géographes in Paris. He is best remembered for his invention of a new map projection of France, which was produced with considerable detail, using spherical trigonometry, truncated power series and differential geometry. The belief that this is Phillip Parker's King's copy is derived from a note in the hand of the important Australiana collector, Geoffrey C. Ingleton explaining how he bought this work "from a descendant of Phillip Parker King, who owned this book." Given King's renown as a naval officer and hydrographer, his ownership of Puissant's significant study is eminently possible, and certainly the date of its publication tailors neatly with the details of his early career. King, family tradition attests, had been encouraged to pursue a career in hydrography by Matthew Flinders. King had first met Flinders as a child, but the two were reaquainted in 1810, shortly after Flinders return from imprisonment under the French. In turn, in 1811 Flinders introduced him to Sir Joseph Banks. Of course, King's own survey of parts of the Australian coast began in 1817. Ingleton's note also comments that he had the book rebound in 1980. Nonetheless, no copy of either of these important works is recorded on the Libraries Australia Gateway. A second enlarged edition was produced in 1820.

        Nouvelle-Hollande: Terre de Witt ... Terre de Diémen du nord... [Plate VII from:] Voyage de Découvertes aux Terres Australes

      Paris, 1807. Single sheet, 353 x 260 mm., wove paper, hand-coloured engraving, very good. Coastal views of Northwestern Australia. A charming set of coastal views on the western and northern coast of Australia after the original sketches by Lesueur. The first two coastal views depict stretches of the Champagny archipelago (present-day Champagny and Heywood Islands), off the Kimberley coast in far northwest Australia (including what Phillip Parker King called the prominent "inverted basin" coastline of Île Freycinet itself). The important group in the middle of this plate show many views of islands in the Bonaparte archipelago, again in the Kimberley, while the last two are views of "Terre de Diemen du nord" (that is, in what is now Northern Territory waters). The names were chosen to honour French predecessors and patrons, such as Commerson (Bougainville's botanist), Jussieu (the French botanist), and Suffren (Comte Pierre André de Suffren de Saint Tropez; the decorated French admiral who, incidentally, captured Cook's old ship the Resolution in 1782). Many of the names given to these remote islands were retained, despite the later conflict between the British and the French regarding naming rights in Australia.

        Voyage de Découvertes aux Terres Australes ... Sur les corvettes le Géographe, le Naturaliste, et la goélette le Casuarina, pendant les années 1800, 1801, 1802, 1803 et 1804

      Paris: Imprimerie Impériale [Royale], 1807-1816-1807-1811-1815-, 1812. Bound in five volumes; a handsome set of the complete official edition, including the "general reader's edition", comprising the two-volume quarto text with portrait frontispiece and two folding tables, the two-parts of the large quarto atlas bound as a single volume containing 40 plates (23 coloured and two folding) and 14 maps (two double-page); together with the "Partie Navigation", comprising a quarto text volume and imperial folio hydrographical atlas, the latter with engraved title, contents and 32 engraved charts, all pages in the imperial atlas expertly mounted on new binder's stubs; a few very sporadic spots, but the set in fine untrimmed condition, the plates crisp and the colouring bright, bound in matching French quarter red morocco over marbled boards, corners pointed in vellum. FINISHED. A fine set of the full account of the Baudin voyage. An extremely good set of the first edition of the complete official account of the Baudin voyage to Australia and the Pacific, sent out by the French government in 1800 with orders to complete the cartographic survey of the Australian coast. This set is in unusually fine condition, with the plates notably crisp and, where appropriate, with the delicate original hand-colouring. This set includes the official account of the voyage (sometimes called the "general reader's edition"), as well as the large-format atlas and its accompanying volume of text: the atlas was published in 1812 and is the first Australian atlas, while the accompanying volume of text is effectively an early pilot's guide to the coast. Baudin's two ships, the Géographe and the Naturaliste, left Le Havre on 19 October 1800 and reached Mauritius six months later, but shipboard quarrels and illness caused a mass defection of scientists and sailors. Having rejigged his crew, Baudin set sail for New Holland, sighting Cape Leeuwin on 27 May and anchoring in Geographe Bay three days later. He sailed north and examined Rottnest Island and Swan River, but the two ships became separated on 11 June. The Géographe finally anchored at Shark Bay on 27 June, but had left by the time the Naturaliste arrived. The latter vessel stayed on in Shark Bay to make an extensive survey - including the discovery of the Vlamingh plate - while Baudin and the Géographe worked along the difficult coast past the North West Cape. The two ships ultimately arrived in Timor in August and September; tropical diseases were already causing deaths among the crew. In November they sailed south for Cape Leeuwin where Baudin, ignoring his instructions to begin charting the south coast immediately, headed for Tasmania, making the D'Entrecasteaux Channel in early January. The two vessels began a close survey of the east coast, again becoming separated. Hamelin on the Naturaliste crossed Bass Strait and made a survey of Western Port before running for Port Jackson. Meanwhile Baudin began his survey of "Terre Napoleon", meeting Matthew Flinders at Encounter Bay in April. Worn out, Baudin turned for Sydney, but chose to again round the southern tip of Tasmania, meaning that he did not arrive off Port Jackson until 17 June, his crew severely weakened by scurvy. Hamelin had actually already headed out to search for Baudin in Bass Strait, but the combination of a storm and poor provisions saw him back in Sydney a few days later, and the two ships stayed in Sydney until November. Warmly and hospitably entertained by Governor King, the French spent their time recuperating and making sense of their collections. In Sydney Baudin purchased a small vessel which he named the Casuarina, placing the relatively young officer Louis de Freycinet in charge. The Casuarina, just 29 feet in length, was acquired to help make the difficult inshore surveys, and Louis' appointment should be understood as an early notice of his skills in charting. The three vessels left Sydney together, but Baudin decided to send the Naturaliste directly back to France, and Hamelin reached Le Havre on 7 June 1803, having sailed via Mauritius. The Géographe and the Casuarina made close surveys of King Island, Kangaroo Island and the Gulf of St Vincent ("Golfe Joséphine"), before continuing to King George's Sound in western Australia, whence they returned to Shark Bay and the northwest before finally reaching Timor on 7 May 1803. They made a quick return visit to the northwest coast of Australia - their third - and reached Mauritius in July, where Baudin died on 19 September. Command was given to Pierre-Bernard Milius, who had been recuperating in Port Louis where he had been left by Hamelin. The decision was made to abandon the Casuarina, and the remaining crew transferred to the Géographe, which returned home on 25 March 1804, almost three-and-a-half years after they left. The official account of the Baudin voyage appeared over ten years, in two quite distinct sections. The two-volume narrative with a small folio atlas of two parts (including some charting, chiefly of specific ports, and the famous views and portraits of native peoples) appeared between 1807 and 1816. The separate large-scale coastal mapping of Australia, an imperial folio atlas accompanied by a volume of partly narrative text together forming the first Australian pilot, was published between 1812 and 1815.

        Terre de Diemén. Grou-agara

      Paris: circa, 1807. Engraved portrait, 315 x 240 mm. (plate size), slight marginal browning, very good condition. Grou-agara, from the D'Entrecasteaux Channel. A striking portrait of the Tasmanian man Grou-Agara by Petit prepared for the atlas volume of the first edition of the official voyage account. The two ships of the expedition had anchored in d'Entrecasteaux Channel on 13 January 1802 after two months at sea; Frank Horner has called the time that followed 'two of the most productive months the expedition was to enjoy' (The French Reconnaissance, p. 191). Their easy and friendly relations with the aboriginal tribes of the region had brought great satisfaction to the French, and they maintained a good rapport throughout their stay. Petit, in particular, was very busy with his sketch book, and his series of portraits and scenes are among the most sensitive portrayals of Tasmanian aborigines - in fact, together with the handful of portraits in the official account of Cook's third voyage, these portraits are the earliest major study of the Tasmanians. The table of contents simply notes that this man was from Van Diemen's Land.

        The Satires, Translated and illustrated by Francis Hodgson

      London: T. Bensley, 1807. Quarto; a fine copy, complete with the list of subscribers and errata-slip, in a splendid contemporary russia binding with heavy sides, ornately decorated in blind and gilt, with the Newstead Abbey coat-of-arms heavily stamped on the cover, spine gilt between double raised bands, marbled edges, matching marbled endpapers; joints neatly repaired, occasional light foxing or faint soiling. Subscriber's copy from Newstead Abbey. First edition of Hodgson's verse translation of Juvenal's Satires; Lowndes quotes Byron's opinion of this version as 'displaying unquestionable genius'. This especially handsome copy was bound for one of the subscribers, Thomas Wildman, Byron's schoolfriend who purchased Newstead Abbey from Byron's family at about the time of this book's publication. Newstead Abbey, Nottinghamshire, was Byron's ancestral home; he wrote Hours of Idleness there in 1806. After he left Newstead, and England, for ever (leaving instructions that he should eventually be buried there in the family vault, near his dog, Boatswain), the property was sold to his former schoolfellow, Colonel Thomas Wildman. Wildman spent a vast amount of money on restoration of the estate, and also built a notable collection of Byron artefacts and memorabilia. Newstead Abbey is also famous for its connection with David Livingstone, the missionary and explorer, who wrote his journals there.

Nach Anfängen als Konditor ging Adam 1807 nach München, um sich als Maler ausbilden zu lassen. Er wurde durch J.G. vopn Dillis (1759-1841) gefördert und avancierte zum Hofmaler Eugen Beauharnais', dem Vizekönig von Italien und späteren Herzog von Leuchtenberg. 1809 war er am Feldzug gegen Österreich beteiligt und 1812 im Gefolge des Vizekönigs an jenem gegen Rußland. 1815 wählte Adam München zu seinem festen Wohnsitz. 1848/49 nahm er in Begleitung Radetzkys am Felszug gegen Sardinien teil.
