        Apologia de Santa Teresa de Jesus, que dirige a las rr. mm. carmelitas descalzas de la ciudad de Mexico.

      Mexico: La oficina de Ontiveros 8vo. [4] ff., plt., 44 pp.. 1812 This is the first and only edition of a well-written and footnoted biography of St. Teresa de Jesús. It seeks to rebut negative criticisms and actual charges of harboring vice that had been contained in some 18th-century peninsular publications. Neither Medina, nor Palau, nor Garritz, nor the cataloguer for the NUC Pre-1956 entry notes a plate as present. The engraved plate in our copy, which is signed "Araoz M.o," shows St. Teresa kneeling in prayer in her garden. In the background are a lake or a river and a mountain. Christ is seen off to the right, emerging from a stand of trees near the water. In front of the saint are some flowers and other cultivated plants which are being watered by an irrigation system fed by a well; two symbolic doves and a yearning (or dedicated) heart also appear. Below the engraving is a quotation from Ecclesiastes that the saint used in her writings. The engraver was Manuel de Aráoz, one of the first students of the Mexican Academy of Painting, a noted engraver, and later subdirector of the Academy's department of engraving. Without the plain wrappers one expects. Three pin-type wormholes affecting some pages, including the plate, not offensively. Discoloration along inner margin of title-page; soiling affecting edges/margins variably; upper outer portions of title-leaf, last two text leaves, and final blank most affected. Ample-margined copy.

Shaw & Shoemaker 24528. Volume 2 only, but complete for the medieval and modern period. Hannah Adams (1755- 1831) was ?an early American historian and pioneer in the field of comparative religion, was also the first [female] American author to make a living solely from writing. She was the first historian of religions ever to try to represent sects and denominations in terms which adherents themselves used and from their perspective?. During the Revolutionary War one of the boarding students [of her father] gave Adams a copy of Thomas Broughton's An Historical Dictionary of All Religions from the Creation of the World to This Perfect Time, 1742. Reading Broughton ?awakened my curiosity, ? she later wrote?.. In 1778 she began to compile a new reference work according to her own rules. She resolved ?to avoid giving the least preference of one denomination above another? and to present the arguments and sentiments of each sect in believers' own words, according to the group's ?general collective sense. ??. In a society whose elite valued education and faith, Adams became a dinner and house-party star ?. Adams's wide knowledge made her a staple in liberal New England's social whirl. She even enjoyed a two-week stay at the home of her distant cousin, John Adams, second President of the United States?..She succeeded?through personal relations with the affluent?.. Her later works included History of the Jews, 1812?. Among short articles on Adams are Conrad C. Wright, "Adams, Hannah, " Notable American Women 1607-1950 (1971) ; Carol Berkin, "Adams, Hannah, " American National Biography (1999) ; and Elizabeth Curtiss, "Hannah Adams: Biographical Sketch, " in Dorothy Emerson, ed. , Standing Before Us (2000) ?

Haydn è morto nel 1809 Ci sono anche tre biografi che hanno seguito e conosciuti Haydn e raccolti i suoi ricordi e le attività. Diplomat Georg August Griesinger (1769 - 1845), il cui libro è stato pubblicato nel 1810, il pittore e compositore la sua Albert Christoph Dies ore (1755 - 1822) apparso anche nel 1810, e lo scrittore italiano Giuseppe Carpani (1752 - 1825), The Haydine, pubblicata a Milano nel 1812.

        Ansicht der chemischen Naturgesetze, durch die neueren Entdeckungen gewonnen. Mit einer Kupfertafel.

      Berlin, Realschulbuchhandlung, 1812. Small8vo. Contemp. modest hcloth. Small tears to spine. (2),298 pp. and 1 engraved plates. Occasional light marginal browning and scattered brownspots. From the library of the Danish engineer and manufacturer Haldor Topsøe, dated 1863. Extremely scarce first edition of Oersteds main work in theoretical chemistry and dynamical physics, containing the main statements of his"Naturphilosophie" which guided him to his later discoveries, and contains the germ of his epochal discovery of electromagnetism eight year later in 1820. All over in nature the same force is active and matter is dependent on two fundamental forces, a repelling and an attractive force, manifesting itself in different forms such as electricity, magnetism, chemical actions, heat and light. he proposes that experiments should be made whether electricity in one of its most latent forms could act on the magnetic bodies as such - his experiments of 1820 established this connection in the form proposed here i.e. electricity in its galvanic form. Partington IV, p. 176. - Duveen, p.439 (only the French edition). - Poggendorff II,309.

        Immortalité dédié a la postérité

      1812. Importante e celebrativa incisione opera di Hyacinthe Maina, incisore nativo di Lubiana che lavorò a Venezia e a Vienna dal 1800 sino al 1815 (Benezit, vol. 7, p. 77). La composizione esalta Napoleone Bonaparte al motto di "Nec plus ultra" alludendo allo stesso tempo sia alla figura mitologica di Ercole, il quale sui monti Calpe ed Abila (meglio conosciuti come le Colonne d'Ercole) scolpì questa frase, sia alla perfezione impersonificata dall'Imperatore. In alto al centro nella corona di alloro, si trova iscritta la parola "Immortalité", e tra ogni foglia della corona stessa viene riportata una delle tante vittoriose battaglie combattute dal 1796 sino al 1809 (Montenotte, Mondovi, Lodi, Castiglione, Bassano, Arcole, Rivoli, Marengo etc ). La decoratività della composizione è esaltata dalla ricca cornice a nastro sulla quale sono iscritti i nomi dei componenti del Conseil d'Etat (sulla sinistra), Senat Conservateur (in alto), Generaux de Division (sulla destra) mentre in basso al centro la dedica ai posteri. Il fine riferimento allegorico attorno al quale è costruita la composizione dell'incisione, l'abile lavoro dell'incisiore e le dimensioni stesse della stampa lasciano supporre che l'opera fosse indirizzata ad un pubblico colto e di rango sociale elevato. Alcuni segni del tempo, rara. mm 595x810

        - STAPFER, Philippe Albert. Voyage Pittoresque de l'Oberland, ou Description de Vues prises dans l'Oberland, District du Canton Berne Paris, [Crapelet for] Treuttel e Würtz, 1812

      1812. in - folio (355 x 260 mm), 5 pp. non num. incluso il front., 90 pp. num., 1 pag. non num. di indice in fine. Antiporta con veduta alpina e titolo scolpito nella roccia incisa a colori, carta topografica in bianco e nero, 14 incisioni eseguite all'acquatinta a colori e ripassate in alcuni particolari a mano; ciascuna incisione è ripetuta in versione al tratto, non ancora colorata. Legatura in cartonato arancione d'epoca, piatti muti, titolo in oro su tassello di marocchino verde al dorso. Quest'importante e scenografica opera impressa a colori, raffigurante paesaggi, montagne e ghiacciai dell'Oberland Bernese, comprese stupende vedute di Grindenwald e della Jungfrau, è stata attribuita in alcune bibliografie a G. Lory il giovane. L'opera, pubblicata originariamente nel 1796, conteneva solo 12 tavole e il testo in francese e tedesco. La presente edizione include un nuovo testo in francese dello statista bernese Stapfer (1766 - 1849). Inoltre le vedute per le tavole 8 e 9 della prima edizione (Vue de Zweilutschinen e Vue des Glacières de Grindelwald) sono state sostituite da due nuove vedute: Vue des Glaciers de Grindelwald e La Cime de la Jungfrau. Jakob Samuel Weibel (1771 - 1846), acquerellista, paesaggista e incisore, realizzò queste pregevoli vedute del bernese negli anni '90 del diciottesimo secolo. I soggetti ritratti includono: un frontespizio allegorico raffigurante lo Staubbach de Lauterbrunneen, una mappa topografica dell'Oberland e del Cantone di Berna; inoltre: 1) Vue de la Ville de Thoune; 2) Vue des environs de Thoune; 3) Vue du Château d'Oberhofen; 4) Vue du Château de Spiez; 5) Vue de la Ville d'Unterseen; 6) Vue d'Interlaken; 7) Ruines d'Unspunnen prés d'Interlaken; 8) La Cime de la Jungfrau; 9) Vue des Glaciers de Grindelwald; 10) Vue du Glacier de Rosenlaui; 11) Vue de Meyringen; 12) Vue du Pont de Wyler e de la Chutte d' Oltchernbach; 13) Vue du Village de Brienz; 14) Vue du Château de Ringenberg.

TII : XVI, 687pp, cartonnage rouge de l'époque, dos lisse avec pièce de titre, Première édition française, traduit de l'anglais sur la sixième édition parue en 1810. L'édition originale anglaise était parue en 1801 sous le titre An Epitome of Chemistry. Envoi autographe de M. Gaultier - Claubry (1792 - 1878), traducteur de l'ouvrage, chimiste et pharmacien. Professeur de toxicologie à l'École de pharmacie (Paris). William Henry (1774 - 1836) était un célèbre scientifique, physicien et chimiste britannique, qui énonça en 1803 la loi sur la dissolution des gaz dans les liquides, appelée Loi de Henry (À température constante et à saturation, la quantité de gaz dissous dans un liquide est proportionnelle à la pression partielle qu'exerce ce gaz sur le liquide.) "Les recherches chimiques les plus notables de W. Henry étaient sur les gaz d'hydrocarbures et sur la combustion de l'ammoniac avec l'oxygène. Dans la seconde, il détermine la composition du gaz ammoniaque en faisant exploser avec une petite quantité d'oxygène. Henry entra à l'Université d'Édimbourg en 1795. en 1798 - 1799, il avait donné ses premières démonstrations de cours, fermement ancrées dans les nouvelles doctrines et la nomenclature. Son manuel, Éléments de chimie expérimentale, était le texte de chimie le plus populaire et le plus réussi en anglais depuis plus de trente ans. ». (DSB VI, p284) «[...] On voit, par l'analyse que nous venons de donner de l'ouvrage de M. William Henry qu'il est parfaitement à la portée des étudiants ; qu'il joint à une grand simplicité l'avantage d'offrir un traité complet. M. Gaultier - Claubry a donc rendu service à la science, en consacrant ses travaux à la traduction d'un ouvrage aussi intéressant ; mais ce jeune chimiste n'a point seulement le mérite de traducteur ; il a enrichi l'ouvrage de notes curieuses, et placé à la fin, sous la liste d'additions, un aperçu des découvertes faites depuis l'époque de l'impression de l'ouvrage anglais : ainsi il parle de la picrotoxine, de la polychroïte, donne un extrait du travail de M. Proust, sur la poudre à canon, etc. [...] Il ne nous reste qu'à donner de justes éloges à M. Gaultier - Claubry, sur la manière dont est écrite cette traduction. Le style en est clair, et nous sommes persuadés qu'après la lecture de l'ouvrage, tout le monde en portera un jugement favorable. » Journal de Médecine, Chirurgie, Pharmacie, etc, contenant les travaux de la société médicale d'émulation par MM.

        29me Bulletin de la Grande Armée. Molodetschno, le 3 Décembre 1812 ( Département de la Gironde. Extrait du Journal Officiel du 17 décembre 1812 )

      Chez Racle, 1812. 1 placard dans encadrement amateur sous verre, A Bordeaux, Chez Racle, Imprimeur de la Préfecture, 1812 Il s'agit du "mythique" 29me Bulletin, sous sa forme d'affiche murale dans son édition bordelaise. En faisant connaître l'immensité des pertes éprouvées par la Grande Armée dans le froid glacial des plaines de Russie, ce bulletin sema la stupéfaction dans tout l'Empire. Fidèle à sa réputation ("Menteur comme un Bulletin" !), il se termine sur la phrase fameuse : "La santé de Sa Majesté n'a jamais été meilleure". Bon état (cadre amateur frotté, brunissure angulaire). On citera le début de cette pièce extraordinaire : "Jusqu'au 6 novembre, le temps a été parfait, et le mouvement de l'armée s'est exécuté avec le plus grand succès. Le froid a commencé le 7 : dès ce moment, chaque nuit nous avons perdu plusieurs centaines de chevaux, qui mouraient au bivouac. Arrivés à Smolensk, nous avions déjà perdu bien des chevaux de cavalerie et d'artillerie. L'armée Russe de Volhynie était opposée à notre droite. Notre droite quitta la ligne d'opération de Minsk, et prit pour pivot de ses opérations la ligne de Varsovie. L'Empereur apprit à Smolensk, le 9, ce changement de ligne d'opérations, et présuma ce que feroit l'ennemi. Quelque dur qu'il lui parût de se mettre en mouvement dans une si cruelle saison, le nouvel état des choses le nécessitait. Il espérait arriver à Minsk, ou du moins sur la Beresina, avant l'ennemi . Il partit le 13 de Smolensk ; le 16, il coucha à Krasnoï. Le froid, qui avait commencé le 7, s'accrut subitement, et, du 14 au 15 et au 16, le thermomètre marqua 16 et 18 degrés au - dessous de glace. Les chemins furent couverts de verglas, les chevaux de cavalerie, d'artillerie, de train, périssaient toutes les nuits, non par centaines, mais par milliers, surtout les chevaux de France et d'Allemagne. Plus de 30 000 chevaux périrent en peu de jours ; notre cavalerie se trouva toute à pied ..." Français

        A Dissertation on the Pernicious Effects of Gaming; A Dissertation on Duelling; A Dissertation on Suicide

      Printed by J. Archdeacon Printer to the University, Cambridge 1812 - Three volumes bound in one Octavo. full smooth calf ruled in gilt, rebacked (some time ago) in poorer quality leather to match, gilt lettered spine label, marbled endpapers. Richard Hey (1745 - 1835) was born in Leeds and educated at Cambridge. In 1771 he was called to the bar at the Middle Temple and took the degree of LL. D. in 1778. He did not succeed as a barrister, however, so he retired from the bar. He was a Fellow and tutor of Sidney Sussex College until 1778 and then of Magdalene College from 1782 to 1796. In 1782 some gentleman offered anonymously, through the University of Cambridge, to give a prize of fifty guineas for the best "Dissertation on the Pernicious Effects of Gaming". Richard Hey obtained the prize and the work was published in 1783, with a second and a third edition. The same gentleman offered a similar sum of fifty guineas, in the year following for the best "Dissertation on Duelling", and a third time for the best"Dissertation on Suicide". Richard Hey won both of those prizes and both dissertations were published, the one in 1784 and the other in 1785, with a second edition in 1812 when the three dissertations were published in one volume.In 1792 he wrote an article "Answer to Paine's Rights of Man" in which Ôhe demonstrates the system of that arch-theorist to be a system of despotism and tyranny. He entitled this useful publication "Happiness and Rights".'. [Taylor, The biographia Leodiensis; or, Biographical sketches of the worthies of Leeds . pp. 363-365].

        Introducing electricity through experiments].

      Constantinople, 1227 AH (= 1812 AD). - 8vo (222 x 150 mm). 16 ff., mostly with 24 text lines to each page (text area 155 x 70 mm). Written in excellent Naskh script with black ink on waxed paper. Headings and highlighted words in red. Two (folded) plates on velin paper (watermark: A. Stace 1802). With carefully executed pen-and-ink drawings with notes in red (167 x 194 mm each). Contemp. red half leather. Covered with Ebru paper, with leather edges and marbled endpapers. The original Ottoman Turkish manuscript of one of the most important texts in the history of electrical engineering and science: the complete treatise on electrical fluid, as drafted by the Turkish engineer Yahya Naci the same year. "In the early 19th century, the teaching of science at the Imperial Engineering School in Istanbul was mostly based on the material translated from textbooks compiled for the French 'grandes écoles'. Translations and compilations were generally made by the professors of the school. Yahya Naci Efendi (d. 1824), a lecturer in French language and sciences, compiled in 1812 a treatise introducing the properties of electricity through experiments. His aim was also to show that the lightning flash and the thunderbolt were electrical phenomenons. Yahya Naci's main source was the chapter on electricity of Mathurin-Jacques Brisson's (d. 1795) 'Traité Elémentaire de Physique', a popular book of physics in French colleges. This translation is important because Yahya Naci endeavoured to create Ottoman terms from Arabic regarding electricity and because it points to the initiatives in introducing experimentation in the teaching in the Imperial Engineering School" (Günergün). The colophon states the name of the scribe as "Yahya Naqi" and the date "Zilqa'da 1227 H.", proving that the present volume constitutes the author's long-lost original manuscript. - In very fine condition; only a few insignificant spots.

        Censor Extraordinario. Contestación de don José Miguel Guridi Alcocer lo que contra él y los Derechos de las Cortes se ha vertido en los números 13 y 14 del Telégrafo americano....

      [colophon: Cadiz: En la impr. de Don Agapito Fernandez Figueroa 4to (20 cm; 7.5"). 47, [1 (blank)] pp.. 1812] Guridi y Alcocer was a Mexican representative to the Spanish Cortes. Juan López de Cancelada was a member of the Consulado de Mexico. This put the two men immediately at odds, for each group loathed the other. López de Cancelada had something of an upper hand when seeking to smear Guridi y Alcocer and the other Mexican deputies to the Cortes for he owned and was publisher of a newspaper, El Telégrafo Americano, at Cadiz. Guridi y Alcocer here defends himself and various of his statements in the Cortes from Cancelada's attacks in that newspaper, both personal and political. Guridi sought to open the New World to free trade, arguing for free access to European seeds, plant stocks, and exports generally. He also sought administrative reform, reduction in regulations, and the ending of colonial status. WorldCat locates only two copies Worldwide. Removed from a nonce volume. One small tear in a margin, repaired. Clean and nice.

        Map of the State of New York by Simeon De Witt Surveyor General Contracted from his large Map of the State

      New York 1812 - Engraved map, hand-coloured in outline, sectioned and linen-backed at a contemporary date. Housed in a black morocco backed box. Unique copy of De Witt's important 1804 map of New York, with county divisions updated to 1812. In 1778, George Washington appointed Simeon De Witt as the assistant to Robert Erskine, the first Geographer and Surveyor General of the United States, a position De Witt attained several years later. Following the war, De Witt became the first Surveyor General of New York, a position he held for an unprecedented fifty years. Among his first acts was to create the definitive first map of the state based on actual surveys. Following the settlement of the state's boundaries and accurate surveys which he directed, De Witt published a large wall map in 1802 - the first map of the state and the progenitor of similar mappings in other states. Two years later, De Witt issued this "contracted" version of his wall map, intending its circulation to meet a wider audience. According to Allen, however, the map, which was sold by subscription, "does not seem to have been as widely distributed as its predecessor, although it appears to have been designed to reach a wider audience. It may be that De Witt's 1804 map was unable to find a niche in competition with other small-scale maps of the state, such as those of Samuel Lewis" (Allen). Nevertheless, as Streeter commented, De Witt's 1804 map is "one of the earliest separate folding maps of New York after it became a state." Interestingly, the present copy suggests that De Witt, or an enterprising mapseller, made an additional attempt to market this map. This copy of the 1804 map is updated to 1812; that is, the map is as printed in 1804 but the county boundaries shown via period hand colouring depicts the state in 1812: the far western counties established in 1808 are clearly delineated (e.g. Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, and Niagara counties) but Erie County created in 1821 is not shown; Putnam county is shown separate from Dutchess County as per its establishment in 1812; Oneida County is shown with its western boundary on Lake Ontario, i.e. before the 1816 establishment of Oswego County; among other additions. In all the state is divided into 47 counties. We find no other example of De Witt's 1804 map altered in this fashion. The exactness and appearance of the colouring, however, suggests it to be a distinct issue of the map, or done for some official purpose, as opposed to an early owner's mere manuscript addition.

        [Peach] Early Newington Peach; Buckinghamshire Mignonne; Mignonne Barrington Peach

      [London]: G. Brookshaw, 1812. Aquatint engraving, with some stipple, printed in colours and finished by hand. In excellent condition with the exception of a tiny infill along bottom left corner of sheet outside of platemark. Image size: 16 x 12 1/16 inches. 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 An Oak Spring Pomona 40a.

        HISTORY OF ENGLAND, From the Earliest Times to the Death of George the Second. With a Continuation to the Treaty of Amiens by Charles Coote

      London For F. C. and J. Rivington; et al 1812 - 4 volumes. A very early edition of Goldsmith's history, corrected, and only the second edition to include Coote's continuation up to 1802. Tall 8vos, in handsome contemporary mottled calf, the boards with gilt chain framework, the spines with elegant central gilt devices in compartments between extensively decorated flat bands, two compartments with contrasting red and black morocco labels gilt lettered and tooled, board edges hatched in blind, page edges speckled. viii, 422; 447; 431; 567 pp. A beautiful, gentlemanly and pristine set, the text appearing essentially as mint, very fresh and crisp, the bindings strong and sturdy and handsome. A VERY HANDSOME SET IN FULL CONTEMPORARY STATE OF GOLDSMITH'S IMPORTANT POLITICAL HISTORY OF ENGLAND. Though best remembered now for his novels, Goldsmith's "History" was a staple of 19th century upper education, thus is rarely found in such fine condition. It is recognized for its balanced and unbiased delivery, its largest criticisms were for being too concise. Goldsmith's own work begins with the pre-Roman Britons and ends with George II. Coote's very excellent continuation provides us with an entire volume on the age of George III, whose Reign was longer than any other British monarch before him. Events in this extraordinary period of time included the Seven Years War, the American Revolution, the French Revolution and the early Napoleonic years. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A New and Elegant General Atlas. Comprising all the new discoveries, to the present time. Containing sixty three maps, drawn by Arrowsmith and Lewis

      Published by Thomas & Andrews, Boston 1812 - (10 5/8 x 9 inches). Letterpress title (verso blank), 1p. list of maps (verso blank). 63 engraved maps (2 folding). Expertly bound to style in calf-backed contemporary marbled paper-covered boards, flat spine in six compartments divided by fillets, lettered in the second compartment Provenance: Henry Roice (contemporary signature on the front pastedown) Nice copy of a scarce early American atlas, with an important early mapping of the American West. The first edition of this atlas was published in Philadelphia in 1804. American mapmaker Samuel Lewis had formed a partnership with English mapmaker Aaron Arrowsmith to publish an atlas to accompany editions of Morse's American Geography, which had been criticized for its poor illustrations. The atlas, as the title page infers, was a separate production could be used with any gazetteer or geographical work. Phillips lists further editions of 1805, 1812 and 1819. According to Ristow, all editions contain the same maps. Almost half of the maps in the atlas are of American interest: in addition to the two folding world maps at the front, maps 29-59 are of the Americas, with maps 31-50 being of individual States or Territories. Of note are four maps of importance to the American West, titled: North America, Louisiana, British Possessions in America and Spanish Possessions in North America (cf. Wheat, Mapping the Transmississippi West 259, 260, 261 & 262). The map titled Louisiana, which is based on the Soulard mapping, is of particular importance, depicting the region west of the Mississippi explored by Lewis and Clark. "The Samuel Lewis map was the primary map of the newly purchased territory of Louisiana and its surroundings and, as such, reflected the shaped American popular geographical images of the western interior at the time of Lewis and Clark" (Mapping the West, p. 80). Phillips, Atlases 718; Ristow pp.265-266; Rumsey 2436 (1804 first edition). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        [Peach] Marlborough Peach; Rombullion Peach; Double Mountain Peach

      [London]: G. Brookshaw, 1812. Aquatint engraving, with some stipple, printed in colours and finished by hand. In excellent condition with the exception of some minor infill work on the bottom left corner of sheet. Image size: 16 1/8 x 12 3/16 inches. 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 An Oak Spring Pomona 40a.
