        Rosa Rubiginosa anemone-flora

      Paris 1817 - This beautiful stipple engraving is from Pierre Joseph Redoute's Les Roses. The work was published in Paris by Firmin Didot between 1817 and 1824. The text was written by Claude Antoine Thory.Redoute's name is synonymous with beauty and in the world of botanical art he is known as the best. The work proved to be not only outstanding in terms of its beauty but also for its scientific merits. Many of the images were after Thory's personal collection as well as the rose garden of the Empress Josephine's garden at Malmaison. Redoute and Thory described almost all of the important roses that were known in their time. Lawalree describes the text as being 'of outstanding importance to both botanists and horticulturalists.Redoute's fame is due in large part to his diligent effort to perfect the use of stipple engraving. This labor intensive, and therefore expensive, technique creates subtle yet stunning variations of color making it superior to the engraving alone. Each plate was created using the 'a la poupee' process in which the color was applied before the printing. Hand-finished coloring was painstakingly applied after printing.Redoute was renowned for his artistic ability and tutored such people as Queen Marie-Antoinette, Empress Josephine, Marie-Louise, and Queen Marie-Amelie. Redoute influenced a breadth of artists that followed him including Turpin, Poiteau, Bessa, and Prevost. Redoute is widely considered the finest botanical illustrator of the early 19th century, if not throughout history.The process of stipple engraving and color printing give the Redoute Rose prints their luminous quality. Stippling is an etching process that employs dots instead of lines to form the image, which is then color printed by applying colored inks directly to the copper plate for each impression. The use of colored inks, greens and browns to print the stems and leaves, and reds and pinks to print the flowers, create a more luminous print by eliminating the necessity to paint watercolor over a back inked image. --- The work is in very good to excellent condition. There is an occasional faint fox mark or imperfection to be expected with age. Please review the image carefully for condition and contact us with any questions.

        Albert Durers Designs of the Prayer Book.

      London: Published September 1st, 1817, R. Ackermann’s Lithographic Press. - Folio (38 x 27 cm.): [4], 8 pages; [1], 43 leaves of lithographed plates, printed mostly in single colors (black, red, green, mauve, and grey) and two printed in black and red, plus frontispiece portrait of Dürer (p. [2]). Bound in 19th century half-calf over marbled boards, expertly rebacked in black cloth with old calf spine overlaid; minor spotting and foxing on some leaves. From the library of Swedish antiquarian bookseller Björn Löwendahl (1941-2013), with pencil signature on title page of Herbert W. Bryans dated 1895, almost certainly Herbert William Bryans (1855-1925), British artist and stain glass designer. THE FIRST MAJOR BOOK PRINTED IN BRITAIN BY MEANS OF LITHOGRAPHY. As documented by Abbey and Twyman, a few earlier attempts to print books using lithography were made in the Britain, but Ackermann’s book is "the first serious attempt to popularize the new method" (Abbey). Dürer’s marginal drawings for the manuscript prayer book of the Emperor Maximilian, now in the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek in Munich, were considered a national treasure in Germany, and lithography was used to produce several facsimile editions of it. Alois Senefelder, the inventor of lithography, printed an edition in Munich in 1808 entitled Albrecht Dürers Christlich-Mythologische Handzeichnungen, which included 43 border designs printed in several single colors matching those that Dürer had originally used. Ackermann’s 1817 edition, the first important production from his lithographic press, used plates that were copied from Senefelder’s 1808 edition by an unknown artist. The book’s title page was printed in red and black, as was a single text page of the original manuscript. According to Michael Twyman, "These two pages may well be the earliest examples of colour lithography from separate stones to have been produced in Britain" (Twyman (2013), p. 36). REFERENCES: J. R. Abbey, Life in England in Aquatint and Lithography, 1770-1860 (1953), 202; Michael Twyman, A History of Chromolithography: Printed Colour for All (2013), pp. 35-36; Michael Twyman, Early Lithographed Books (1990), pp. 49, 204-205, 294 (no. 1.92).

Bemerkungen: Seltene Erstausgabe in 2 Bänden - Johann Evangelist Fürst (1784 - 1846) erzielte 1817 mit seinem „Bauer Strüf“ eine weite Verbreitung in der ländlichen Kultur seiner Zeit. Meist der sog. Hausvaterliteratur zugerechnet übersteigt dieses im Stile einer dialogisch angelegten Erzählliteratur wissensreiche Kompendium landwirtschaftlich-forstökonomischen Wissens seiner Zeit dieses Genre bei Weitem. Es gibt umfassenden Einblick in die Agrarkultur der Zeit versehen mit unzähligen Erfahrungsschätzen zur Steigerung von Produktivität und Ökonomie in der Hof- und Hauswirtschaft. Grund für die weite Verbreitung dieses Werkes war die Wahl des Erzählstils, durch den das dargebrachte Wissen gewissermaßen seine agrarpädagogische Methode fand. „Johann Evangelist Fürst wurde am 28. Dezember 1784 im niederbayerischen Frauendorf bei Vilshofen als sechstes Kind der Bauerseheleute Michael und Katharina Fürst geboren. Im Wesentlichen geht es um die Geschichte der Familie von Simon ‘Strüf’ – ein so genanntes Anagramm zu ‘Fürst’ und somit auf Johann Evangelists Bruder gemünzt – und seiner Ehefrau Theres im fiktiven ostniederbayerischen Ort ‘Lichtendorf’. Die Strüfs schaffen es in schwieriger Zeit zu Wohlstand zu kommen. (Sie) nutzen (die) rationelle Verbesserungen in der Feld-, Wiesen-, Garten-, Haus- und Hofwirtschaft mit Obst-, Gemüse-, Kräuter-, Flachs-, Ölpflanzen-, Hopfen- und Tabakanbau, Obstbaum-, Vieh- und Bienenzucht, Unkraut- und Schädlingsvernichtung sowie vermehrtem Düngemitteleinsatz u.a. (Fürst) stellte. (auf seinen Gütern) im Frühjahr 1820 den ehemaligen Schlossgärtner von Irlbach bei Straubing, Herbert Rudolph Diecker, an, der aus dem friesischen Emden stammte und sieben Jahre in Fürsts Diensten blieb. Ab Herbst 1821 schickte er diesen besonders in Pomologie fachkundigen und belesenen Mann durch ganz Bayern für eine Bestandsaufnahme in Sachen Obstkultur und auch zum Erfahrungsaustausch mit Freunden der Gartenkultur. Diecker hatte weit reichende Verbindungen zu Deutschlands führenden Pommologen der Zeit – z. B. dem Arzt Adrian Diel im rheinischen Diez an der Lahn, der 1819 erst ein neunbändiges ‘System der in Deutschland vorkommenden Kernobstarten’ abgeschlossen hatte, ferner dem Württemberger Pfarrer Johann Ludwig Christ, dem Thüringer Pfarrer Johann Volkmar Sickler, Verfasser von ‘Der teutsche Obstgärtner’, oder dem fränkischen Adeligen Christian Freiherr Truchseß von Wetzhausen zu Bettenburg. Dadurch gelang es Fürst, aus vielen Baumschulen im In- und Ausland alle möglichen Sorten von Kern- und Steinobst nach Frauendorf zu holen.weitere Informationen auf der Homepage des Bundes Akademie Verlags.
