        VIEW NEAR THE FALLS OF SCHUYLKILL

      Philadelphia: Mathew Carey, 1820. One chip in top margin and three chips in right margin, all outside the plate mark and under the mat line. A very good, fresh illustration. Matted. Joshua Shaw was a British landscape painter who came to the United States in 1817. He conceived the idea of a published series of American views, which he executed over the next few years, and which were published in Philadelphia as a series of nineteen plates entitled PICTURESQUE VIEWS OF AMERICAN SCENERY. The original edition of 1819 was issued by Moses Thomas and exists in only a few copies. The present plate is from the 1820 second issue published by Mathew Carey, also very rare. In this subtly colored scene, a rider walks his horse through a wooded opening toward a valley. The Schuylkill Falls are shown in the distance and a thickly wooded forest lies beyond. The valley is illuminated by sunlight pouring through a break in the cloudy sky. A wonderful view of a verdant Pennsylvania. DEÁK, PICTURING AMERICA 315. HOWES S345 (PICTURESQUE VIEWS OF AMERICAN SCENERY). MILES & REESE, AMERICA PICTURED TO THE LIFE 5. REESE, STAMPED WITH A NATIONAL CHARACTER 5.

        Scarce Huntington calligraphic rendering of the Declaration of Independence, one of the earliest broadside reproductions, with the signatures of the signers in exact facsimile.

      [Hartford, CT], circa 1820-1824. 19.5" x 24". "Broadside: (DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE) HUNTINGTON, Eleazer, engraver. In Congress, July 4th 1776. The Unanimous Declaration of the Thirteen United States of America. [Hartford], circa 1820-24. Linen-backed broadside engraving on wove stock, measuring 19.5"" x 24"", mounted on contemporary rollers, handsomely framed, entire piece measures 31 ""x 30"". Edges lightly frayed, not affecting text, a few minor abrasions to varnished surface (without any loss of text). An extremely good copy on original wooden rollers, rare, desirable, and important.The Declaration of Independence, the foundation document of the United States, has been printed a myriad of times since its original publication in 1776. At first as broadsides, then as an essential addition to any volume of laws, it was from the beginning a basic work in the American canon. The present document is one of the earliest broadside reproductions of the Declaration, done within a few years of the first broadside republications. In the period following the War of 1812, Americans began to look back for the first time with historical perspective on the era of the founding of the country. The republic was now 40 years old, and the generation of the American Revolution, including the signers of the Declaration, was dropping away. With nostalgia and curiosity, many Americans began to examine the details of the nation’s founding. Among other things, such documents as the debates of the Constitutional Convention were published for the first time. It seemed extraordinary that the Declaration of Independence, as created, was unknown to Americans, when the text was so central to the national ego. Several entrepreneurs set out to bridge this gap by printing reproductions of the document. The first to do so was a writing master named Benjamin Owen Tyler, who created a calligraphic version of the Declaration and published it in 1818, recreating exactly the signatures of the signers as they appeared on the original. Three other broadside printings of the Declaration were issued in 1818 and 1819, each containing ornamental borders or illustrations. These were followed in the early 1820s by the present printing by Hartford engraver and author on penmanship Eleazer Huntington. Huntington followed Tyler’s example by creating a calligraphic facsimile of the Declaration, but stripped out the ornaments and illustrations that had been added by previous publishers, returning the document to the simple title and text of the original, and providing the signatures of the signers in exact facsimile. According to John Bidwell’s list, this is the sixth broadside reproduction of the Declaration of Independence. Bidwell locates three copies of the Huntington printing of the Declaration in institutional holdings: the Huntington Library, Massachusetts Historical Society, and the American Antiquarian Society (Proceedings of the American Antiquarian Society, 98: 247-302)."

        Set of Four Shooting Prints, [Plate 1] Shooting, Going Out, [Plate 2] Shooting, Game Found, [Plate 3] Shooting, Dogs brought the Game, and reloading, [Plate 4] Shooting, Refreshing

      1820. Colour printed aquatints heightened with gum arabic. Printed on wove paper. In excellent condition with the exception of being trimmed within the platemark on the bottom margin. Four puncture holes on left margin where it was bound together. Plate 1, has some very minor foxing in margins. Image size: 9 ¾ x 12 5/8 inches. A handsome set of four shooting prints aquatinted by S. Himley after paintings by the celebrated sporting artist Dean Wolstenholme. Around 1820, S. Himley produced two sets of hunting aquatints after skilled paintings by Wolstenholme. These sets, expertly engraved in aquatint, were comprised of four plates illustrating shooting, and four plates depicting coursing. As with many of the prints after Wolstenholme's paintings it is difficult to decipher whether Himley's works reproduced paintings by Dean Wolstenhome Snr. or by his son Dean Wolstenholme Jnr. The Wolstenholme's were both talented sporting artists who earned a reputation as skilled animal painters. Both father and son exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy and garnered countless commissions from eager enthusiasts. They specialized in fine hunting scenes and had a natural flare for depicting movement, which lends their work an animation and life, which is truly compelling. This stunning set of four shooting prints is rarely found as a complete set and is a wonderful example of English sporting art at its best.

        Kangaroos of New South Wales. View from Seven-Mile Hill near Newcastle N.S.W.

      London: R.A. Ackermann, 1820. Hand-coloured engraving, 287 X 380 mm., small closed tear to lower blank margin (image and caption unaffected); very good. A very early engraved study of two kangaroos, the outcome of the fruitful relationship between two convict engravers, Walter Preston and Joseph Lycett, and the artistically talented army officer Major James Wallis.This is a natural history study from Wallis' fine album of Australian views titled An Historical Account of the Colony of New South Wales published by Ackermann in London in 1821. The plate was engraved by the convict artist Walter Preston whose considerable talents came to the attention of Major Wallis, then commander of the convict settlement at Newcastle. At the time, Newcastle enjoyed a fearsome reputation for as a place for secondary punishment and was described by a contemporary officer as 'the Hell of New South Wales'.For many years the attribution of Wallis as the artist of the views in An Historical Account of the Colony of New South Wales was a matter of historical conjecture (the implication being that he had appropriated the work of Preston and Lycett). However, the recent revelation of original watercolour material by Wallis establishes him as the artist. Not that this fact diminishes the achievement of the convict engravers: Preston was tasked with working upon the only copper sheets available, manufactured for sheathing the hulls of ships, a difficult material softer than standard engraving copper.Ultimately, both Preston and Lycett were pardoned by Macquarie on Wallis' recommendation, in no small part because of their work on this book. When Wallis departed Australia in 1819 he took the plates with him to London where this book was published by Ackermann, complete with an introductory history of the colony and a map of Port Macquarie by the surveyor John Oxley.

        Landscape and Castle by Laporte

      1820. Hand-coloured aquatint printed on wove paper. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling, minor creasing, and mild rippling. Trimmed virtually to image on all sides. A stunning pastoral landscape engraved after an original work by the famous watercolour painter John Laporte. This print may be part of a series as the inscription below the title, which reads, "From Select Compositions of Modern Masters," seems to suggest. A student of the aquatint engraver J. C. Stadler and the Royal Academy Schools, Frederick Christian Lewis was a renowned and versatile painter, engraver, and etcher. Although he produced and exhibited many landscape paintings throughout his life, he was chiefly known for his prolific and varied engravings. In addition to his separately issued topographical, sporting, and landscape prints, he executed numerous engravings after the Old Masters and eminent contemporary artists like Landseer, Bonington, and Danby for publications such as John Chamberlaine's Original Designs of the most Celebrated Masters in the Royal Collection (1812) and William Ottley's Italian School of Design (1823). Lewis was also a skilled portraitist, and he received copious engraving commissions from various members of the Royal Family. Cf. Dictionary of National Biography.

        Scarce Huntington calligraphic rendering of the Declaration of Independence, one of the earliest broadside reproductions, with the signatures of the signers in exact facsimile.

      [Hartford, CT], circa 1820 - 1824. 22.5" x 25.5". "Broadside: (DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE) HUNTINGTON, Eleazer, engraver. In Congress, July 4th 1776. The Unanimous Declaration of the Thirteen United States of America. [Hartford], circa 1820-24. Linen-backed broadside engraving on wove stock, measuring 22.5 x 25.5"". Handsomely matted and framed, entire piece measures 31"" x 27"". Toned to mellow brown, a few minor abrasions (without any loss of text), light dampstain to right margin, tack holes to extreme top and bottom edges. A very good copy, rare, desirable, and important. The Declaration of Independence, the foundation document of the United States, has been printed a myriad of times since its original publication in 1776. At first as broadsides, then as an essential addition to any volume of laws, it was from the beginning a basic work in the American canon. The present document is one of the earliest broadside reproductions of the Declaration, done within a few years of the first broadside republications. In the period following the War of 1812, Americans began to look back for the first time with historical perspective on the era of the founding of the country. The republic was now 40 years old, and the generation of the American Revolution, including the signers of the Declaration, was dropping away. With nostalgia and curiosity, many Americans began to examine the details of the nation?s founding. Among other things, such documents as the debates of the Constitutional Convention were published for the first time. It seemed extraordinary that the Declaration of Independence, as created, was unknown to Americans, when the text was so central to the national ego. Several entrepreneurs set out to bridge this gap by printing reproductions of the document. The first to do so was a writing master named Benjamin Owen Tyler, who created a calligraphic version of the Declaration and published it in 1818, recreating exactly the signatures of the signers as they appeared on the original. Three other broadside printings of the Declaration were issued in 1818 and 1819, each containing ornamental borders or illustrations. These were followed in the early 1820s by the present printing by Hartford engraver and author on penmanship Eleazer Huntington. Huntington followed Tyler?s example by creating a calligraphic facsimile of the Declaration, but stripped out the ornaments and illustrations that had been added by previous publishers, returning the document to the simple title and text of the original, and providing the signatures of the signers in exact facsimile. According to John Bidwell?s list, this is the sixth broadside reproduction of the Declaration of Independence. Bidwell locates three copies of the Huntington printing of the Declaration in institutional collections: the Huntington Library, Massachusetts Historical Society, and the American Antiquarian Society (Proceedings of the American Antiquarian Society, 98: 247-302)."

        Le General La Fayette

      1820. Lithograph. Printed on india paper and mounted onto thick white wove as issued. In excellent condition. A striking portrait of General Lafayette with a plaque listing the major battles that he participated in. Lafayette's actions during the American Revolution earned him a place in America's pantheon of heroes. Joining the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War, he became one of the first Frenchman to come to America's aid. Through his valiant commitment to the American cause Lafayette became a close associate of George Washington's, and he helped negotiate French aid for the Revolution. He was voted a major general at the age of 20 by the Continental Congress, and his actions at the battle of Yorktown helped corner the British forces, which led to their surrender in 1781. Returning to France, he played an important role in the French Revolution, though the chaos inherent in the situation nearly cost him his life. Ultimately though he was hero in his own country as well as in the New World. In 1824, as the United States approached its 50th anniversary, President Monroe invited General Lafayette to return to America. He enjoyed a hero's welcome and toured the 24 states in triumph. Lafayette had a great love for the United States, a sentiment which is best expressed in his eloquent words to Henry Laurens, the Congressional President; "The moment I heard of America I loved her; the moment I knew she was fighting for freedom I burnt with a desire of bleeding for her; and the moment I shall be able to serve her, at any time, or in any part of the world, will be the happiest of my life". Through his involvement in the American and French revolutions Lafayette became a symbol of the ideals of liberty and a crusader against tyranny. Lafayette's veneration for the United States was so strong that when he returned to France, he took with him a plot of American soil, within which he was buried. Lafayette came to America during this country's birth and his words embody the ideals and sentiments that helped form this country. In a letter to his wife in 1777, he wrote; "The happiness of America is intimately connected with the happiness of all mankind; she is destined to become the safe and venerable asylum of virtue, of honesty, of tolerance, and quality and of peaceful liberty."

Also, a new method to bring the most barren land into cultivation, for meadows and sheep walks: and a variety of other useful information in every branch of this art, absolutely necessary for every person, from the opulent farmer, to the proprietors of small pieces of land

      London: printed for Sherwood, Neely, and Jones, 1820. 8vo. (8 7/8 x 5 3/8 inches). Half-title, 1p. errata, 16pp. publisher's catalogue at end dated September 1820. Occasional wood-engraved decorations. Original boards, rebacked First edition, second issue, of this charming work, full of fascinating practical information on land management at the turn of the 19th century. This appears to be a second, remainder issue of the first edition: the dedication is dated 1806, the text has occasional watermark dates of 1804, but the title is a cancel issued by Sherwood, Neely & Jones who are also responsible for the publisher's catalogue at the end which is dated 1820. The first issue was dated 1806 and published by T. Ostell. No copies of the present issue are listed as having sold at auction in the past thirty years, and only one example of the 1807 issue. "Although this Work may not be written in fine stile and polished language ... it will be found to be clear and comprehensive ... suited as well to the understanding of the refined Gentleman as to that of the industrious farmer' (introduction, p.ix). The work is largely made up from many short entries under numerous sub-headings, and reads like a note-book of observations and calculations: a charmingly straight-forward work which nevertheless imparts a great deal of practical knowledge. For example, in the section on planting trees, Tibbs extols the financial benefits of growing trees for timber and in an innovative way combines the purely financial calculations of the costs and profits of planting an acre of land with practical instructions on how to plant and manage the plantation for the period needed to see a good profit (42 years). According to the introduction, Thomas Tibbs received his initial training in agriculture from his grandfather at Fidden Farm in Wiltshire, from there he moved to the Chiltern Hundreds where he farmed on his own land. He subsequently worked for Charles Hill, J. Sainsbury, and King George III's Flemish Farm before becoming Land Steward to Lord Grenville (the dedicatee) at Burnham in Buckinghamshire: this wide practical experience allowing him to write with authority on the numerous subjects he covers in this work. Cf. Kress 19367 (1807 issue).

        Christian Hahn (1820 Garbenheim). Sommerlust, nach Ludwig Richter. 1852

      - Christian Hahn (1820 Garbenheim). Sommerlust, nach Ludwig Richter. 1852 . Tonlithographie auf aufgewalztem Chinapapier. -- Technik: -- Tonlithographie auf aufgewalztem Chinapapier. im Stein monogrammiert und datiert: "LR 1852", Unterhalb der Darstellung bezeichnet und signiert: "Gez. v. Prof. L. Richter. Gedr. bei Fr. Hanfstaengl in Dresden. Lith. v. Ch. Hahn. " und bezeichnet: "Der sächsische Kunstverein seinen Mitgliedern für das Jahr 1852. ". -- Maße: -- Platte: 39 x 52,5 cm. Papier: 47,4 x 65,9 cm -- Zustand: -- sehr gut -- Beschreibung: -- Diese meisterhafte Lithographie von Christian Hahn gibt ein geradezu programmatisches Motiv Ludwig Richters wieder: Unbeschwert zieht die Gruppe aus jungen Kindern und Frauen ihres Weges, Alt und Jung umschlingen sich in liebevoller Eintracht. Alles scheint perfekt. Doch auch diese aurea aetas hat ihre Soll-bruchstellen, wie sie häufig, besonders in Richters frühen Kompositionen, anzutreffen sind: Was treibt diese Menschen zusammen" Kein Handlungsstrang oder erzählerisches Band umschließt sie. Es ist ein austausch-bares Personal, emotions- und charakterlos, geradezu vor Glück betäubt. Außerdem fehlt, wie fast immer bei Richter, zum biedermeierlichen Familienglück das männliche Personal. Hier wird es nur durch den abseits im hohen Gras vorbeiziehenden Jungen angedeutet, doch auch er gibt zu denken. Sehnsüchtig blickt er, einsam und viel zu jung auf weiter Wanderschaft, der Gruppe hinterher und verschwindet dabei selbst wie ein Schatten im flüchtigen Strich der Linie. Zudem ist das, was er sieht auch damals schon reine Utopie, ein Gegenbild zu dem aufstrebenden Bürgerturm, das sich in Städten niederlässt und nur noch in solchen Idealbildern an eine nie gewesene Vergangenheit erinnert werden möchte. Damals wie heute legt sich über solche Bilder der magische Sepiaton, der retrospektiv alles ins Idyll transformiert. Richter bediente mit sol-chen Kompositionen ganz gezielt auf höchstem Niveau ein nostalgisches Publikum, das, damals wie heute, dringend solcher Utopien bedurfte, um eine emotionale Flucht antreten zu können. Solche Bilder als bieder-meierlichen Kitsch abzutun, wäre grundfalsch. Sie waren - und sind - Medizin. -- [Attributes: Signed Copy]

The character that Scott gave to Robin Hood and his band of 'merry men' helped shape the modern notion of this figure as a cheery noble outlaw.
