        Untitled

      Paris 1816 - Jacques Barraband’s (1767-1809) engravings of birds are masterpieces of French ornithological illustration. This stunning portrait, [Untitled], measures 22.5" x 16.25" and is in excellent condition. This image was done for the distinguished ornithologist Francois Levaillant, who commissioned the artist to illustrate his landmark works on exotic birds, including the lavish and striking Histoire Naturelle des Promerops. This bird is expertly hand-colored in rich shades of gray and black with a dark beak and crimson eye. The positioning of the bird, as if viewed from below, allows for the undersides of the wing and tail-feathers to be appreciated. Precise lines define and detail this bird, giving it definition and dimension. 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. 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. Each feather is described by dozens of parallel lines, providing remarkable detail and naturalistically textured color. Some of the prints are embellished with touches of gold leaf on the feathers of the cheeks and shoulders of the birds, emphasizing the preciousness of the plates and reproducing the iridescence of the birds’ feathers. The present selection of images represents an opportunity to acquire spectacular engraving by a foremost 19th-century natural history artist.

        Memoirs of My Own Times, Volume II

      Abraham Small, Philadelphia 1816 - First edition. Volume Two only. Fair in original paper covered boards with spine nearly perished, spine lable present but chipped/cracked, front and rear endpapers detached but present, both boards detached. This is second book of the vast, defensive, three volume memoir by one of the most senior and controversial officers in Continental Army/United States Army. He has been characterized by the historian Robert Leckie as a general who "had never won a battle or lost a court-martial" and this volume catalogues several of his vindications in the face of charges that he abused his power or was negligent. He both held high offices and was tarnished by his intriques: he was the most senior officer in the US Army after Washington and Hamilton and was first governor of the Louisiana Territory, yet he resigned his first commission due to corruption charges, was later proved to have been in secret negotiations with the Spanish to set up a fief of his own in Kentucky, was suspected of conspiracy with Aaron Burr to set up an independent nation in the West, and was court-martialed by James Madison, which is the concern of the first chapter of the book .

        Untitled [Orange Bird]

      Paris 1816 - Jacques Barraband&#146;s (1767-1809) engravings of birds are masterpieces of French ornithological illustration. This stunning portrait, [Untitled], measures 22.5" x 16.25" and is in excellent condition with light staining and foxing along the side margins. This image was done for the distinguished ornithologist Francois Levaillant, who commissioned the artist to illustrate his landmark works on exotic birds, including the lavish and striking "Histoire Naturelle des Promerops". This bird is expertly hand-colored with a yellow-orange body, teal colar and brown wings. 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. Apart from their undoubted beauty, Barraband&#146;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.

        History of the Merchant Taylors' School

      London: Ackermann, 1816 - This folio forms part of one of Ackermann's larger, though not so successful projects, his History of the Colleges. Ford in his book on Ackermann notes that William Combe wrote the text for this, as well as five other schools, in 1811, though the book itself did not appear until 1816, with plates. Ackermann believed that "Old Boys" would buy up the volumes with great sentimental gusto; the fact is, the initial subscription was less than 400. He then bound up the remaining sheets separately and sold them as individual folios, this being on of them. Tooley notes that most of these have later issue plates (ACKERMANN, RUDOLPH) First Edition, First Issue (paper watermarked 1816). Folio.

        Plate 74, Pitcairnie a large feuille (Bracteose Pitcairnea)

      Paris 1816 - This exquisite, hand colored stipple engraving, &#147;Plate 74, Pitcairnie a large feuille&#148; measures 20.5&#148; x 13.75&#148; and is in excellent condition. This dynamic flower, commonly called the Bracteose Pitcairnea, is from the genus Pitcairnea, named for Dr. William Pitcairn an English physician and gardener. Naturalistically depicted, the flower is colored with a green stem and long thin leaves, with deep pink tubular flowers, growing in an upward, spiked direction. Shading and highlighting of the flowers adds dimension to this engraving and showing some of the flowers blooming gives the viewer an idea of how beautiful the flower is in full bloom. Also illustrated on this engraving are records of the anatomical features of this species including the bulb and flowers, so that the flower could be identified with precision and cultivated to perfection. In each illustration, the flowers are classical "portraits" which lack backgrounds or settings. The regal simplicity of the compositions allows the viewer to focus without distraction on the beauty and delicate complexity of the plants themselves. Les Liliacées was Redouté&#146;s largest and most ambitious work and is generally considered his masterpiece, arguably rivaled only by Les Roses. Produced under the patronage of the Empress Josephine, for whom Redouté worked as botanical artist at her estate at Malmaison, these pristine examples represent landmark works in the field of flower illustration. The title Les Liliacées is misleading, as the work was of a much broader scope, including representatives of the lily, amaryllis, iris, orchid, and other families. The plates were executed by means of stipple engraving, a method that the artist himself perfected when he was unsatisfied with the effects garnered by traditional copper-plate engraving. As Redouté shrewdly observed, the delicacy and subtle elegance of his compositions could only be captured using a printing method equally fine. The luminosity of stipple engraving is particularly suited to the reproduction of botanical detail. The medium involved engraving a copper plate with a dense grid of dots that could be modulated to convey delicate gradations of color. Because the ink rested on the paper in miniscule dots, it did not obscure the "light" of the paper beneath the color. After this complicated printing process was complete, the prints were finished by hand in watercolor, so as to conform to the exquisite models Redouté provided.

        Plate 145 - Lilium Pyrenaicum (Pyrenean Lily)

      Paris 1816 - Pierre-Joseph Redouté Hand-colored stipple engraving from Les Liliacées Paris: 1802-1816 31 1/4&#148; x 24 1/4&#148; framed The unequalled botanical artist Pierre-Joseph Redouté occupies a central position in the development of European flower painting. Redouté had, as pupils or patrons, five queens and empresses of France, fromMarie-Antoinette to Empress Josephine and her successor, Marie-Louise. Despite many changes of regime in a turbulent epoch, he worked without interruption, a testament to his greatness as an artist.

Les Liliacées records the plants of the lily family, and related flowers, that Josephine collected for her gardens at Malmaison. Redouté's small drawings, placed at the bottom of the main illustrations, record the anatomical features of each species so that each flower could be identified with precision and cultivated to perfection. In each illustration, as in his series Les Roses, the flowers are classical "portraits" which lack backgrounds or settings. The regal simplicity of the compositions allows the viewer to focus without distraction on the beauty and delicate complexity of the plants themselves. Redoutés's work represents a uniquely harmonious blend of scientific precision and supremely delicate rendering.
