        [Plums] Red Magnum Bonum, Blue Perdrigon Plum, Le Royal Plum, Whaite Magnum Bonum

      [London]: G. Brookshaw, 1807. Aquatint engraving, with some stipple, printed in colours and finished by hand. In good condition. A fine image from Brookshaw's masterpiece: 'Pomona Britannica; or, A Collection of the Most Esteemed Fruits'. George Brookshaw's 'Pomona Britannica' is the finest work on fruit and flowers ever produced. Its breathtaking images display a level of technical virtuosity and beauty that distinguish this magnificent work as a true work of art. As a retired cabinetmaker, Brookshaw produced his seminal botanical study late in his career, at first publishing it in parts and then as a complete edition in 1812. The fact that this outstanding work took ten years to complete is evident in the quality of its images and the care with which Brookshaw executed each individual picture. 'Pomona Britannica' was produced as a visual record of the best available varieties of fruit in an attempt to encourage gardeners to experiment with growing fruit, and illustrates examples found in the Royal gardens at Hampton Court, Kensington Gardens, and the private gardens of the Prince of Wales in Blackheath. 'Pomona Britannica' differs from other botanical works in its dark aquatinted backgrounds and its stylized compositions. By using aquatint to create a contrasting background, Brookshaw manages to produce a truly dramatic effect. His use of stylized composition distinguishes his pictures from the dry scientific illustrations found in other botanical studies and creates an exceptionally beautiful visual experience. 'Pomona Britannica' is not only a didactic study, it is a masterpiece of illustration in which every picture is a testament to the artist's talent and ingenuity. Cf. Dunthorne 50; cf. Great Flower Books (1990) p.81; cf. Nissen BBI 244; cf. Sandra Raphael Oak Spring Pomona 40a.

        German fraktur manuscript prayer book with slipcase

      Probably Pennsylvania, 1807. Full leather. Very good. The prayer book measures approximately 4.25" x 6.25"; the slipcase 4.5" x 7". Complete with frontispiece, title page, author and ownership page, 273 numbered text pages, and 7-page index. The exceptionally well-done frontispiece is hand-drawn/colored and shows Jesus Christ in prayer next to a large sunflower under bright sun. The text is a mixture of fraktur and script. Elaborate hand-drawn headings and decorations throughout the text in red, green, yellow, and black-brown repeat the sun and flower motif. Red leather boards five raised bands and gilt foliate tooling. The initials "R. G." are stamped in the center of the front cover. All edges gilt. Sound binding with intact hinges and clean pages. Edge-gilding is bright; decorations somewhat darkened. The well-worn tight-fitting brown-leather slipcase is structurally sound but missing the top end of its cap. The book is titled Sonen Wend: Blumlein which I believe loosely translates as Sunshine: Flowers. The title page also states that it contains confession and communion vespers as well as daily prayers. On the reverse is a note that it was compiled by Franz Xaveri Warig in 1807 for Oresencia Kieferin. A beautiful handcrafted work of religious, and perhaps personal, devotion.

        Atlante del Regno di Napoli Ridotto in VI Fogli per ordine di Sua Maestà Giuseppe Napoleone I Re di Napoli e Sicilia Principe Francese e Grand’Elettore dell’Imperio da Gio. Antonio Rizzi Zannoni direttore del Gabinetto Tipografici di S. M.

      Napoli 1807 - Acquaforte e bulino, circa 1807, firmata in lastra. Bellissima prova, impressa su sei grandi fogli di carta vergata coeva, con sottili margini, lievi fori di tarlo, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Carta in sei fogli (380x510 ognuno) con orografia dimostrata a mezzo di tratteggio; il foglio n. 2 contiene il titolo, entro cartiglio architettonico con figure allegoriche in stile neoclassico, e la legenda dei segni convenzionali per i confini e per le strade. Sotto al titolo è scritto: "Aless.o d'Anna inc., e del " e " Gius. Azzerboni inc.". Il foglio n. 5 reca due scale grafiche calcolate in miglia italiane e in leghe di Francia e, in basso a sinistra la firma "Vincenzo Aloja sculp.". Giuseppe Bonaparte fece eseguire, a partire dal 1807, una carta in scala ridotta che gli consentisse di sostituire la vecchia carta del 1769 ed anche la più recente, ma ancora grossolana, rappresentazione del Bacler d'Albe, eseguita durante la campagne napoleoniche in Italia. Nacque così " la carta ridotta in sei fogli", contemporanea all'atlante geografico in 31 fogli, rispetto al quale risulta più moderna e più vicina alla cartografia scientifica ottocentesca e contemporanea, sia nei contenuti che nelle espressioni grafiche. Gioacchino Murat lasciò la dedica del suo predecessore, ma i Borbone trasformarono il frontespizio al loro rientro sul trono di Napoli, dopo il 1815. Antonio Rizzi Zannoni fu astronomo e cartografo; ingegnere geografo nel Dépôt de la Marine a Parigi e direttore scientifico della commissione per la carta geografica del Regno di Napoli dal 1781, e direttore dell’ Officio Topografico di Napoli dal 1807 al 1814. Con lui nasce la moderna cartografia geodetica nel Regno di Napoli. In questo Atlante Geografico in sei fogli si apportano correzioni agli errori di valutazioni delle longitudini presenti nell'Atlante Marittimo. Prima e rara edizione di questa bella carta del Regno. Etching and engraving, circa 1807, signed on plate. Beautiful impression, printed on large sheets of six contemporary laid paper, with thin margins, slight worm holes, otherwise in excellent condition. A six-sheet (380x510 each), the sheet no. 2 contains the title within architectural cartouche with allegorical figures in neoclassical style, and the legend of conventional signs for the boundaries and in the streets. Below the title is written: "Aless.o of Anna inc., And" and "Gius. Azzerboni inc.". The sheet no. 5 carries two scale bars calculated in Italian miles and leagues of France, and in the lower left signed "Vincent Aloja sculp." Giuseppe Bonaparte run, starting from 1807, a paper on a smaller scale that would allow him to replace the old paper of 1769 and the most recent, but still coarse, representation of Bacler d'Albe, performed during the Napoleonic campaigns in Italy. Thus was born "the paper reduced in six sheets," contemporary geographical atlas sheets in 31, compared which is more modern and closer to nineteenth-century scientific cartography and contemporary, both in content and in graphic expressions. Joachim Murat left the dedication of his predecessor, but the Bourbon became the title on their return to the throne of Naples, after 1815. Antonio Rizzi Zannoni was an astronomer and cartographer, engineer, geographer in the Dépôt de la Marine in Paris and director of the Scientific Committee on the map of the Kingdom of Naples since 1781, and director of 'Topographic Office of Naples from 1807 to 1814. With him is born modern geodetic mapping in the Kingdom of Naples. This Geographic Atlas in six sheets you make corrections to errors of evaluation of longitudes found in the Atlas Maritime. First edition of this rare and beautiful map of the Regno.

        The Costume of Hindostan Elucidated by Sixty Coloured Engravings; with Descriptions in English and French, taken in the years 1798 and 1799.

      Edward Orme,, London 1807 - Small Folio, (365 x 264 mm), [8], English & French text, viii, dedication leaves and interleaved explanatory text to each plate in both English and French, 60 hand-coloured line, or stipple-engraved, or etched plates by Scott or T. Vivares after Solvyns, contemporary hard-grained dark green morocco, slightly rubbed with some scuffing to boards, gilt-stamped and lettered spine, with foliate border in gilt to boards, gilt edges, marbled endpapers, occasional spotting and offsetting to text, endpapers lightly soiled, two bookplates of F. W. Kingsford & Hugh Sadler tipped to front pastedown. A beautiful copy, published by Edward Orme, printed by J, Hayes. Copy in good condition. Frans-Balthasar Solvyns was a Flemish painter, illustrator, and ethnographer. He was known for his series of etchings of the people of India, including their activities, festivals, and cultural life. First published in parts with an undated title page, and followed by editions in 1804 and 1807; however, the popularity of the work ensured that it stayed in print for many years after these dates. It was based on Solvyn's earlier work containing 250 plates titled: "The Manners, Customs and Dresses of the Hindoos", published in Calcutta in 1799. This work was a financial failure largely due to the images being poorly executed by European standards. The eminent Orientalist Sir William Jones, was enthusiastic and supporter to Solvyns’ work, he pursued his aim of issuing a work that did justice to the subject. In 1803, he prepared an enlarged text, in both French and English (translated by his wife Mary Anne Greenwood). Orme made water-colour copies, after Solvyn’s original drawings, for use by the engraver. ‘ These copies are much better drawn than Solvyn’s original, and the stipple engravings are corresponding an improvement on Solvyn’s etchings’.

This copy is very clean, far more so than normal as the sepia issue seemed to become quite a bit more browned. Heriot travelled a good deal through Canada from 1800 to 1816 as deputy postmaster general of British North America. He recorded his travels in illustration as well as text, as represented by the fine plates in the present work. Heriot was considered one of the finest watercolorists of his day. The plates depict the Azores and include three views of Quebec; one each of St. Paul's Bay, Jeune Lorete, the Ruins of Chateau Richer, River Etchemin, and Lake St. Charles; two views each of Niagara Falls, the St. Lawrence, the Fall of Montmorenci, and the Fall of la Puce; one each of Fort Niagara, Montreal, Grand Chaudiere on the Outaouais River, and the Bridge on the Jacques Cartier; and illustrations of Indian costume, an Indian encampment, and two of French Canadian dancing. The text offers a fine contemporary account of the Loyalist settlements in Canada and contains important material on the cod fisheries, fur trade, and native Indians, with a printing of Father Rasle's vocabulary of the Algonquian language. Very very scarce in this condition and fully coloured. 1807

        A Plan of New York Island, Part of Long Island &c. Showing the Position of the American and British Armies, before, at, and after the Engagement on the Heights, August 27th, 1776

      Philadelphia: C. P. Wayne, 1807. unbound. Map. Uncolored engraving. Sheet measures 17 x 10.5" This important and rare map of New York City and vicinity depicts the events surrounding the Battles of Long Island and Harlem Heights, which eventually led to the British takeover of New York and vicinity, and includes army positions and movements. Covers the theater of war in Manhattan, the Bronx, Brooklyn, Long Island, Queens, Staten Island, and parts of New Jersey. Land and sea position and movements of the British and American armies are noted. Following the evacuation of the British in Boston in March 1776, the British landed huge forces to gain control of the lower Hudson and New York City. They landed on Staten Island and Long Island and managed to defeat Washington at the Battle of Long Island or the Battle of Brooklyn Heights. Washington and his trapped forces managed to escape to Manhattan on August 29. The fighting finally culminated in the Battle of Harlem Heights in New York City. The American army was overpowered once more and driven northward to Westchester County and eventually across New Jersey into Pennsylvania and famously across the Delaware which became the turning point in the war. This map notes towns, fortifications, roads, and topography throughout. The map was part of the rare 1807 atlas volume belonging to Chief Justice John Marshall's seminal six volume biography of Washington. In good condition with minor wear along original folds. John James Marshall (1755--1835) was the fourth Chief Justice of the United States. A renowned Federalist, Marshall's admiration for George Washington led him to publish "The Life of Washington," a five-volume biography of the famed President and general. In 1832, he produced a revised and condensed two-volume edition with hand-colored maps. This map attests both to Marshall's influential work and to the skill of the general it honors.

        THE LADY'S MAGAZINE or Entertaining Companion for the FAIR SEX, Appropriated Solely to Their USE and AMUSEMENT

      London, Patternoster Row: Printed for G. Robinson This bound volume of issues is about 9 x 5.5 inches (about 22 x 14 cm) 3/4 leather, red cloth cover with green leather corners and spine, gilt decorations on all leather edges and on spine, gilt spine titles. The edges are rubbed and corners worn and the red cloth has a little light soil and a couple of small splots on the front board, otherwise the colors and gilt are bright. Plain colored endpapers, hinges started but strong. Previous owner's bookplate on front paste-down. All edges stained red. The text is on rag paper, very clean and fresh throughout. Issues include: 1807: Jan, April, May, June, Sept; 1809: Jan, Feb, May, June, Sept. Images included: 10 hand-watercolored fashion plates (Regency period). These usually represent two figures (often front and back views) of women in congenial activities - playing the harp, lounging and conversing, walking arm-in-arm, etc. One is so cute, it reminds me sharply of Kate Greenaway. Plus: 23 engravings and 13 folding engravings. The folding engravings are mostly embroidery patterns (or rather, designs) for such things as borders and trimmings, crown of a cap, designs to decorate veils, etc. Very delicate and mostly flora-inspired. The engravings include scenes and portraits, with a "gallery" of English peers at the end of the book. The texts cover a wide range of topics including current fashion, biography, history and natural history, travel, poetry, foreign news, births, marriages, and deaths, essays, etc. Apparently what a 'Lady' of the period would need to know to carry on sprightly parlour conversation. Ladies in the obituaries are noted for their piety, pleasantness, manners, and tenderness. Their patronage is recounted. Many died in 'childbed' or in 'unsuccessful labor.' Gentlemen are noted for their accomplishments. No further comment from ye cataloger. COLLECTIBLE 3592. Serial, First Editions. Hard Cover. Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket (as issued). Illus. by Hand-colored Plates Plus Engravings. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Collectible.

        Terre de Diemén. Grou-agara.

      Paris: circa, 1807. Engraved portrait, 315 x 240 mm. (plate size). 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. Slight marginal browning, very good condition.
