        Plate 71

      Vienna 1819 - Vienna became a center for botanical art illustration during the early 19th century. Francis I (1768-1835) of Austria, the last monarch to rule over the Holy Roman Empire, was obsessed with flowers and promoted the study of botanicals as well as the creation of gardens in Vienna. His Imperial Gardens, where he realized his passion for flowers, remain one of Vienna's most beloved treasures. Leopold Trattinnick, a wealthy Austrian botanist, was the first curator of the Botanical Court Cabinet, founded by Francis I. A member of a prosperous family, Trattinnick had the means to publish several sumptuously produced botanical works without regards to cost. Trattinnick's publications include Auswahl Vorzuglich Schoner (1821) and Neue Arten von Pelargonien Deutchen Ursprunges (1825-43). Thesaurus Botanicus is considered his most beautiful work. Thesaurus Botanicus consists of 80 illustrated plates by the Austrian artists Strenzel, Frister, Kneisech, J. Schmid, Reinelli, Malknect and Buchberger. The majority of the plates were illustrated by Ignaz Strenzel, a professor at the Vienna Academy, and by Franz Reinelli, a flower specialist at the Royal Vienna porcelain manufacture. This hand-colored engraving, "Plate 71" measures 16.25" x 10.5" and is in very good condition with small foxing marks. Expertly detailed and vibrantly colored, this engraving illustrates the different parts of this plants flowers and gives a fuller version of the plant on the stems. This engraving is colored with vibrant green stems and pink flowers with yellow centers. The cross sections of the different layers of the flowers brings a scientific edge to this beautiful engraving.

        Northumberland. A Calendar of the Prisoners, In the Gaol of our Sovereign Lord the King

      Newcastle-on-Tyne, 1819. Broadside measuring 523 x 417 mm., wove paper watermarked 1816, folded, excellent condition. Transported for seven years. A striking visual display of English justice during the transportation era, listing the conviction and punishment of prisoners tried at the Newcastle-upon-Tyne assizes on 14 August 1819.Court calendars such as this fine example were published as public notices detailing the convictions, punishments and sentencing of persons appearing before the assizes. This calendar reports the conviction of eight men tried at the assizes that day, in addition to the punishments allotted to another five. Here we read the fate of one Robert Brown, aged 35 years and convicted of larceny, who is to be 'transported to such Part of his Majesty's Dominions beyond the Seas...for the Term of seven Years.'The crimes of other convicts are described in some detail, and include counterfeiting, assault of a gentleman upon the King's Highway for his silver watch, theft of silver and bank-notes from a Friendly Society and the robbery of textiles and plush velvet cushions from a church. The most prominent list of charges belong to one Ralph Hush, also aged 35 years, who is charged with a string of livestock thefts, including one instance where Hush did 'feloniously take and drive away... thirty Wedder Hogs, ten Ewes, and thirteen Lambs... as well as one Dinmont Sheep and two Lambs' in all exceeding 80 shillings value.

        A Voyage of Discovery, made under the orders of the Admiralty, in His Majesty's Ships Isabella and Alexander, for the purpose of exploring Baffin's Bay and inquiring into the probability of a North-West Passage

      Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, 1819. . Very Good. 2nd edition; Printed by Strahan and Spottiswoode For Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, And Brown, 1819. 2 vols. Vol I lxix, 265pp, Vol II (2), 258pp, 2 plates,(1 folding), 1 full page diagram. Second Edition of this famous voyage, which marked the resurgence of British interest in the search for the north-west passage, and inaugurated the great arctic explorations and discoveries of the nineteenth century. Among Ross?'s officers on the voyage were William Edward Parry, James Clark Ross, and Edward Sabine. Setting out in April of 1818, the expedition rediscovered Baffin Bay and its three Sounds, Smith, Jones, and Lancaster, thereby vindicating the reports made by William Baffin in 1616. Sailing some distance into Lancaster Sound, Ross sited a mirage which he believed to be a range of mountains blocking further passage. These he named the Croker Mountains in honour of the first secretary of the Admiralty, J.W.Croker. On his return to England, Ross?'s report was initially accepted as conclusive and he was promoted to Captain, but his contention that Lancaster Sound was landlocked was disputed by other members of the crew, notably by his second-in-command, William Edward Parry. Parry?'s view was supported by Sir John Barrow, second secretary of the Admiralty, with whom Ross was to carry on a life-long quarrel as a result. In 1819, the Admiralty appointed Parry to lead a second expedition, which proved Ross to be mistaken. His reputation seriously discredited, Ross was never again given command of an official government expedition. National Maritime Museum I 818n. Sabin 73376. Smith 8796. TPL 1153. Arctic Bib. 14873.

        The Botanical Magazine; or, Flower-Garden Displayed

      London: for W. Curtis, 1819. 46 volumes bound in 25 plus index for volumes 1-42, octavo. With an engraved portrait in index volume (lightly foxed) and 2104 hand-coloured engraved plates, some folding, some foxing and offsetting but generally plates clean and fresh, contemporary half calf, marbled boards, sometime rebacked, usual wear to corners and edges, a fine set. One of the most important early botanical journals. An excellent unbroken run covering the best years of "The oldest scientific periodical of its kind with coloured illustrations in the world...In the beauty of production and high standard of its contribution it can claim a unique place" (Patrick Synge, Journal of the Royal Horticultural Society (1948, 7e:5-6).Most of the early plates were from drawings by Sydenham Edwards and the colouring by William Graves. Other distinguished artists included James Sowerby, John Curtis, and William Jackson Hooker; and to this day the glory of the magazine has been its beautiful and accurate flower paintings.This set comprises the first and most of the second era of the magazine, relating to the editorships of William Curtis himself (vols. I-XVI) and then his successor Dr. John Sims. The work is unmatched for information on the contemporary gardening scene, because both Curtis and Sims understood the close relationship between gardeners and nurserymen, and wanted to advertise the new plants as they became available. With plants from all over the globe, including hundreds from the Cape (due to the indefatigable Francis Masson), as well as the Americas and south-east Asia, the present set includes over 160 finely illustrated Australian plants, of which the substantial majority date from after the voyage of Matthew Flinders, with all manner of notes derived from Peter Good and Robert Brown.William Curtis (1746-1799) was an important botanist of his day and a member of the Linnean Society. An early interest in entomology saw him publish his early collectors' guide, Instructions for Collecting and Preserving Insects (1771), but he soon turned to botany, cutting his teeth at the Chelsea Physic Garden, and later working at Bermondsey and the London Botanic Garden. John Sims (1749-1831) was a physician and botanist, connected to the large network of Quakers in England. A member of both the Linnean Society and the Royal Society, he was ideally placed to take over the Botanical Magazine after the death of Curtis, until he himself retired in 1826.It would be impossible to list the fantastic array of Australian plants in any detail here, but the first is the Mimosa verticillata (February 1790), collected by David Nelson on Cook's third voyage. A notable inclusion is a pair of fine plates relating to the cultivation of the "magnificent" Gymea Lily, noted as having been first cultivated by the Right Hon. Charles Long of Bromley Hill in Kent.Although the beautifully executed plates, most by renowned artist Sydenham Edwards, are the glory of the work, the notes on contemporary gardens and nurseries provide added interest, revealing a complex network of exotic gardens, with famous names such as Lee and Kennedy of Hammersmith and Loddiges of Hackney, as well as lesser lights such as Whitley, Brame & Milne of Fulham, or Grimwood & Wyke of Kensington. It would be possible to draw a remarkable sketch of this network based on a close reading of the Botanical Magazine alone, a sketch which would help reveal important details of a genteel trade in the process of becoming a serious business.

        RICKMAN. An Attempt to Discriminate the Styles of English Architecture. Second Edition [ with] KENDALL. An Elucidation of the Principles of Architecture usually denominated Gothic. First Edition. AN UNUSUAL GOTHIC 'DOUBLE'

      Longman, 1818 (first work); Murray, Nornaville and Fell [and others, 1819] (second work) 1819 2 works in one vol. 8vo., with an engraved frontispiece and 13 engraved plates (first work) and 23 engraved plates (second work), some very light spotting (mainly marginal) on plates; handsomely bound in twentieth century half calf, marbled boards, back ruled, tooled and lettered in gilt, a highly attractive bright, crisp copy, ideal as a gift or for presentation. Since the binding is lettered only for the Rickman it is possible that a previous owner did not realise that TWO important works are present here (the latter, unnamed, work being much the scarcer).Rickman provided the first systematic treatise on Gothic architecture in England. Its influence was profound, for his terminology was employed by virtually all subsequent writers; much of it, indeed, is still current today. First published in 1817 in Liverpool (where the present issue was compiled), one of its most valuable features was its descriptive list of (over 800) extant buildings illustrating the principles of English architecture and helpfully arranged by county. In this updated edition the number of buildings is greatly enlarged. Kendall's VERY SCARCE analysis is based on the ornaments, arches, columns etc., of Exeter Cathedral; the work is intended for practising architects who are taught the main elements which must be followed meticulously to achieve the pure pointed style. Kendall (1766 - 1829) was Surveyor of Exeter Cathedral and responsible for much restoration after about 1805. His important work was reissued once only, by Bohn in 1842. A FINE OPPORTUNITY TO ACQUIRE TWO KEY AND BEAUTIFULLY ILLUSTRATED GOTHIC TEXTS IN A SINGLE, HANDSOME BINDING.

        A Voyage of Discovery, made under the orders of the Admiralty, in His Majesty's Ships Isabella and Alexander, for the purpose of exploring Baffin's Bay and inquiring into the probability of a North-West Passage

      John Murray, 1819. . Good. 1st edition. Errata slip, xl, 252, cxliv. Period calf-backed marbled boards, raised bands, gilt titling to spine, marbled endpapers and page edges NOTE: MISSING MOST OF THE AQUATINT PLATES and charts. Those present are Cape Melville and Melvilles Monument (facing p74); Folding Chart of the Part of Baffin's bay found inhabited (facing p116); Large folding plate Views of Headlands (facing p190); Xeme (facing p LVII) 3 folding Meteorological Journals following appendix. 1st Edition of Ross's famous first voyage which marked the resurgence of British interest in the search for the north-west passage, and inaugurated the great arctic explorations and discoveries of the nineteenth century. Among Ross?'s officers on the voyage were William Edward Parry, James Clark Ross, and Edward Sabine. Setting out in April of 1818, the expedition rediscovered Baffin Bay and its three Sounds, Smith, Jones, and Lancaster, thereby vindicating the reports made by William Baffin in 1616. Sailing some distance into Lancaster Sound, Ross sited a mirage which he believed to be a range of mountains blocking further passage. These he named the Croker Mountains in honour of the first secretary of the Admiralty, J.W.Croker. On his return to England, Ross?'s report was initially accepted as conclusive and he was promoted to Captain, but his contention that Lancaster Sound was landlocked was disputed by other members of the crew, notably by his second-in-command, William Edward Parry. Parry?'s view was supported by Sir John Barrow, second secretary of the Admiralty, with whom Ross was to carry on a life-long quarrel as a result. In 1819, the Admiralty appointed Parry to lead a second expedition, which proved Ross to be mistaken. His reputation seriously discredited, Ross was never again given command of an official government expedition. National Maritime Museum I 818n. Sabin 73376. Smith 8796. TPL 1153. Arctic Bib. 14873. Hill p. 261. Lande 1425. A.B. 14873 Ross was chosen to lead Britains resurgence of exploration of the arctic regions. He commanded the Isabella while William Edward Parry took command of the Alexander. Also included on the voyage were Edward Sabine and Ross's nephew James Clark Ross. The expedition rediscovered Baffins 17th century explorations and found three sounds including Smith, Jones and Lancaster. Unfortuately for Ross, he mistakenly thought the end of Lancaster sound was blocked by a fictitious range of mountains he named the Crocker mountains. After returning to England, many were scepitcal including William Parry about the existance of the mountain range. Parry was chosen to lead another expedition and discovered Lancaster Sound was the gateway to the North West Passage. Ross never lived down this mistake.

        [Manuscript Ledger]: "Waste Book, Downpatrick" (July-December, 1819)

      Downpatrick, [Northern Ireland]. 1819. Manuscript ledgers. Two small folios, spanning the months July--December, 1819. [22]pp., [20]pp. The first with one leaf removed at the rear, the second bumped at the corners, both very good. Hand ruled in ink, with three narrow right hand columns for the listing of monetary sums in pounds, shillings, and pence (L.s.d.). Both ledgers contain detailed business accounts that include inventories of merchandise received and sold (food and wine, leather goods, wool, and other sundries), client debts, cash receipts, bills, and related information. Both also have poems written on the last leaf in a different hand: the first ledger with a long two-page poetic song relating to Ireland's heroic Christian heritage; and the second with two poems on the last page, one of which is a manuscript copy of "The Frozen Brook," published in the November, 1819 issue of the Sporting Magazine, and signed "W.U." The poem warns a young maiden, Rosa, to tread carefully lest she lose her beauty, and by insinuation her virginal purity, through a single misstep. Other poems signed "W.U." were published at this time, but his identity is unknown. An intriguing set of ledgers from Downpatrick. .

        The Chase after a Hog. La Chasse au Sanglier.

      Thomas McLean London 1819 - Aquatint engraving with original hand-colour. Dimensions: 370 by 490mm. (14.50 by 19.25 inches). For Oriental Field Sports, "The most beautiful book on Indian sport in existence" (Schwerdt). Captain Williamson was an extremely talented amateur artist who had built up a fine collection of sketches suitable for turning in to aquatint. He teamed up with Howett - a notable sportsman as well as an industrious engraver of animals to produce this magnificent work, widely considered to contain the finest images of field sports of the Orient. By their very nature aquatint books were always very expensive, but the British public had a great curiosity about India and Williamson's work helped satisfy this desire to know more about the customs of Britain's new addition to the empire.
