Lagad reva i marginalen på s. 43 och 135 samt pappersförluster i yttermarginalen på s. 81 i del I. Med anteckning att volymerna härrör ur apotekare Gorthons bibliotek och Gunnar Brusewitz exlibris.. Friesen s. 11. Nissen Die illustrierten Vogelbücher 677. Innehåller bl.a. en plansch föreställande den apokryfiska fågeln "Falco longipes" som Nilsson här presenterade som en ny falkart. I själva verket hade han låtit sig luras av ett falsarium i Paykulls naturaliekabinett. Arbetet utkom 1824 i omarbetad svensk översättning som "Svensk ornithologi", av Björn Dal kallad den första populära ornitologin på svenska. Gunnar Brusewitz har ägnat Nilsson ett kapitel i "Den nöjsamma nyttigheten" där han pekar på dennes betydelse som övergångsgestalt mellan två epoker: "Som yngling hade han studerat hos lärjungar till Linné och själv hade han undervisat och inspirerat unga vetenskapsmän, vilka skulle få betydelse för forskningen i vårt sekel." Efter studier vid Köpenhamns universitet och besök i Paykulls naturaliekabinett utkom föreliggande arbete "i en liten vacker volym med handkolorerade illustrationer av den vid Lunds universitet verksamme ritmästaren Anders Arvidsson. Detta arbete befäste snabbt Sven Nilssons anseende som zoolog och kan ses som ett första utkast till Skandinavisk fauna. Det följdes fyra år senare av en avslutande del." Av Nilssons dagboksanteckningar framgår att han lät trycka om kapitlet om ripor efter återkomsten från en resa i norr där han stiftat närmare bekantskap med ripsläktet

        Pointers

      London: Published by Edw. Orme, Bond Street, the corner of Brook Str, Jany. 1, 1817. Mezzotint. Printed on wove paper. In good condition with the exception of being trimmed just outside the platemark on all sides. A few creases in image and a small mended tear on bottom margin. Crease along upper left corner. Image size: 18 7/8 x 23 ¾ inches. 18 7/8 x 23 ¾ inches. 19 1/8 x 23 13/16 inches. A captivating English mezzotint depicting two pointers At the sudden apprehension of the scent, both dogs stop dead in their tracks. The black dog in the foreground is transfixed, fiercely ready. Both dogs will spring into action at the order. Careful attention has been paid to every aspect of their poses, their bodies completely given to the scent of their prey. This superb rendering by John Nost Sartorius is perfectly captured by William Ward, one of the masters of mezzotint, who emphasizes the hypnotic state mind the pointers are thrown into.For most of the eighteenth and nineteenth century, animal portraiture, in particular paintings and engravings of prized hunting dogs, became a veritable craze in England. This national passion occupied the talents and imaginations of some of the country's best artists, and created an entire genre of sporting art. Dictionary of National Biography

        [Currants] [Black Currant; White Currant; Dutch Red Currant] [Pl. V]

      [London: G. Brookshaw, no date but watermarked 1817]. Aquatint engraving, with some stipple, printed in colours and finished by hand. In good condition. 16 3/8 x 12 7/8 inches. 20 1/2 x 16 1/4 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.

        Picturesque Rides and Walks, with Excursions by Water, thirty miles round the British Metropolis

      London: J. Hassell, 1817. First edition. Hardcover. Very good. Yes. Two leather bound volumes with spines in 6 compartments, red labels, gilt titles. As so often happens with early 19th century books the collation of these two volumes matches neither the 'directions for placing the cuts' as found at the end of each volume nor the collation as given in the reference. Numerous plates are bound in locations other than indicated, four listed in Tooley (Epsom, Holland House, Melrose Hall and Guildford) are missing and one (Holland House Crouch) which is not listed in Tooley, but is in the directions to the binder is present. It appears that the intent was that the two volumes were each to have 60 plates. Volume One of this set contains 62 plates and volume Two has 55. Having looked carefully at the two volumes it seems possible that the 'missing' plates were not ever present. A lovely set with charming little plates.

        Anvil

      London: Published by Edward Orme, June 4th, 1817. Stipple with etching, colour-printed with hand-colouring. State iii/iii, with the title in closed letters, and engraved inscription: "George Stubbs pinxt.*** Geo. Townly Stubbs sculpt. Engraver to His R.H. the Prince of Wales. / London Republished June 4th. 1817, *** ANVIL. *** by Edwd. Orme, Bond Street". 7 7/8 x 9 7/8 inches. 12 1/2 x 15 5/16 inches. A magnificent portrait of the famous stallion Anvil, by the master equine painter George Stubbs. George Stubbs is considered to be one of the greatest English painters. His ingenious animal and sporting pictures remain unrivalled in their passionate depiction of emotion and their commitment to naturalistic observation. Stubbs was briefly apprenticed to the painter Hamlet Winstanley, a relationship that quickly ended, leaving the young artist to his own education. In contrast to contemporary academic theory, Stubbs' attached great importance to the belief that art should imitate nature, not the work of other artists. He spent years carefully studying human and equine anatomy so that he could truthfully represent natural form and movement. A result of this study was his famous Anatomy of the Horse, which details, with beautiful engraving, the various elements of a horse's anatomy, from skeletal form to muscular definition. By the 1760's, Stubbs had developed a considerable reputation as a sporting artist and had attracted a number of distinguished patrons. Continuing in search of innovation, Stubbs began experimenting with a myriad of different mediums, becoming accomplished in both enamels and printmaking. Through arduous application, he became a talented mezzotint engraver and worked with ease in both soft ground and etching techniques. Stubbs' masterful paintings inspired some of the greatest engravers of the day to reproduce his work for publication, including his own son George Townly Stubbs who reproduced with faithful accuracy the sublime emotion inherent in his father's exquisite works. Stubbs was elected Director of the Society of Artists and a Royal Academician, and today his prized paintings are housed in some of the finest museums in the world.Stubbs was often commissioned to paint accurate portraits of specific steeds for proud aristocratic patrons, who wished to highlight their horses' racing success. This practice is expertly exemplified with this magnificent print of the stallion Anvil, bred by Thomas Paton. The image shows Anvil in an enclosed paddock, and exhibits a keen attention to naturalistic detail. Anvil was first a stallion in the stud of the Prince of Wales and went on to win a great number of races at some of the best courses in England. This beautiful print demonstrates that, with subtle atmospheric effects and complex compositional structure, Stubbs succeeds in raising the genre of equine portraiture to a poetic level.

        Rosa Montezuma / Rosier des Montezuma

      Paris: 1817-1824. Stipple engraving, printed in colours and finished by hand, engraved by Langlois. Very good condition apart. 13 1/2 x 10 inches. More than with any other painter, Redouté's flowers are alive, and always shown at the ephemeral moment of their greatest beauty. Pierre-Joseph Redouté was one of the world's great flower painters. Born into a family that had been painters for at least two generations, Redouté went to Paris in 1782 with his brother where they worked as scene painters for the Théâtre Italien. Redouté painted flowers in his spare time. The search for subjects led him to the Jardin du Roi and eventually to Gerard van Spaendonck who made him an assistant. While at the Jardin du Roi, Redouté came to know Charles-Louis L'Heritier, an amateur botanist and writer of independent means. He gave Redouté a full-time job as an illustrator, instructing him in plant anatomy. Redouté's scientific understanding of plants contributed greatly to the clarity of his depictions. But it was Redouté's work in stipple engraving and colour printing that was to be of the greatest importance. Stippling and the application of two or three colour inks to one plate were engraving innovations that Redouté brought to French printmaking, and these were brought to perfection in Les Roses from which this work comes.Redouté together with Claude-Antoine Thory, an ardent botanist and collector of roses, have together in Les Roses produced a work not only of great artistic merit, but also an invaluable scientific record as well. `Redouté and Thory knew, described and figured almost all the important roses known in their day. Included were many of the key ancestors of our present-day roses. The plates in Les Roses have artistic value, botanical and documentary value, both for the species and cultivars still surviving and for those that have disappeared' (Gisele de la Roche). The roses used as specimens for the work were taken from the collections of Thory, the Malmaison gardens, and from other collections around Paris. Many of the flowers were novelties in Redouté's time, and a number were dedicated to the memory of his friends and acquaintances, such as l'Héritier de Brutelle and Ventenat. Cf. Cleveland Collections 807; cf. Dunthorne p 232; cf. Great Flower Books (1990), p 128; cf. Nissen BBI 1599; cf. Pritzel 7455; cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 8748.

        Selecta opuscula academica.

      Edidit Johannes Norrmann. 1-3. Lund, Berlingianis, 1817-19. 8:o. (8),+ 3-385,+ (1); IV,+ 583; (4),+ 604,+ (2) s. Samtida hfrbd, guldornerade och blindpräglade ryggar, marmorerade pärmar och gröna snitt. Tre volymer, ryggarna något flammiga. Fint exemplar ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Samlingsutgåva med flertalet av Mathias Norbergs tal och kungörelser (del 1) och en stor del av hans avhandlingar (del 2-3). Redaktören Johannes Norrman var, liksom Norberg, från Norrland och han disputerade under Norbergs presidium 1808. Han blev själv sedermera professor. Matthias Norberg (1747-1826) var professor i orientaliska språk vid Lunds universitet. Han reste 1777 iväg på sin utländska resa och skulle förena sig med Björnståhl i Konstantinopel för en vidare resa i Orienten. År 1779 anlände Norberg till Konstantinopel men då Björnståhl samma år dött i Grekland fick han inga anslag för den vidare resan, utan fick fortsätta sina studier i Konstantinopel. Professorsutnämningen som Björnståhl tidigare fått gick nu istället till Norberg och 1780 tillträdde han posten. Som professor var han oerhört flitig och 158 disputationer ventilerades under hans presidium. Hans internationellt mest kända arbeten är utgåvorna av "Codex Syriaco-Hexaplaris Ambrosiano-Mediolanensis", Lund 1787 och "Codex Nasaraeus, liber Adami apellatus", Lund 1815-16. Mot slutet av sitt liv återupptog han sina turkiska studier och 1818 utgav han en latinsk utgåva av det turkiska geografiska arbetet "Cihan-nüma" samt en historik över Turkiet

Sheet sizes: 14 7/8 x 18 1/8 inches and 15 x 18 1/4 inches. A lovely pair of sporting prints Henry Thomas Alken was born into what became an artistic dynasty. He studied under the miniature painter J.T. Barber and exhibited his first picture (a miniature portrait) at the Royal Academy when he was sixteen. From about 1816 onwards he "produced an unending stream of paintings, drawings and engravings of every type of field and other sporting activity. He is best remembered for his hunting prints, many of which he engraved himself until the late 1830s ...

        Letztes mineral-system. aus dessen nachlasse auf oberbergamtliche anordnung herausgegeben und mit erlaeuterungen versehen (von j.k. freiesleben).

      Freyberg and Wien, Graz und Gerlach/ Gerold, 1817. 8vo (203 x 128mm). pp. xiv, 58. Publisher's printed decorated wrappers. First edition. "The final version of Werner's systematic arrangement of minerals, published posthumously by his students. A landmark in mineralogy, despite its slim size" (Wilson, Mineral Books p. 62). Abraham Gottlob Werner (1749-1817) was the most prominent German mineralogists of the period. "Although Werner is best known for his contribution to the founding of geology as a science, he first achieved recognition as a mineralogist. He considered mineralogy to be the basis for all the study of the earth, dividing it into five branches, of which geognosy (historical geology) was one and oryctognosy (descriptive mineralogy) another. And during all the years in which his theories on geognosy were arousing so much interest and controversy, he continued to work on his mineralogical system, the final version of which appeared after his death in 1817 (DSB XIV, p. 257). Title page with old oval library stamp "K.K. St. Oest. Eisenwerks", and old signature. A very well preserved copy.
