        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."

        The Experimental Farmer: being strictures on various branches of husbandry and agriculture, drawn from a long series of practice in different parts of Great-Britain; containing Observations on planting and Preserving Young Trees, with an approved method of thinning them, to become timber. Likewise, Plans for Laying-out Land, on a five and four field system. 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]

        Ivanhoe. A Romance.

      Edinburgh: Archibald Constable and Co., 1820., 1820. First Edition, First Issue, with page 159 misnumbered, then pagination compromised until end of volume I. Three vols, octavo. Bound without half-titles or terminal ads although preliminary advert leaf bound in volume 1, and all three fly-titles present. Original marbled boards respined and recornered in brown calf to style, all edge marbled. Rather bold armorial bookplates of Admiral and Mrs Robert Lay Page, with both signatures to titles. Internally clean but for a little spotting to first and final leaves, some rubbing to boards. A very good, presentable copy of this classic Medieval adventure set during the Crusades, in which the legendary Robin Hood makes an appearance, initially under the name of Locksley. 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.

A VERY BEAUTIFUL & SUBTLE ALBUM OF 15 EROTIC PAINTINGS **** A LOVELY SUITE OF 15 FINE COLOR QING DYNASTY EROTIC CHINESE PAINTINGS. *** Painting size is ca.11 x 20 cm. Each painting shows a couple engaged in or preparing to enjoy sexual pleasure, some with genitals exposed, each painted with the most delicate and beautiful colors, as their faces display a pink flush with excitement. * The girls all have "Golden Lotus" feet or bound feet, with tiny shoes tied on, they are all dressed in lovely, flowing gown, with natural garden setting in the background, with colorful flowers & trees. * 1. The first scene shows a very young couple preparing to make love. * 2. The next is of a young girl using a dildo, while a male lover looks on with erect penis. * 3. The third shows a girl sitting on her lover's knee, as he fondles her vulva. * 4. Next shows a couple engaging in love-making in the garden, as the girl sits facing her lover. The genitals are shown where engaged. * 5. Two girls prepare to engage in love-making. They are both on a sofa, one reclines holds a bronze mirror, while the other girl holds her lover's right leg up. Both share looking into the mirror to see the erotic scene [some mild discoloration on her hip & face]. * 6. Shows a couple in the garden, while the girl rests her face on her arm on a rock, bending over exposing her posterior, while her lover enters from the rear and holds her fast. 7. A couple are seated, the man first, then the woman sits upon his lap, as she holds up one knee for deep penetration. * 8. While the mistress sleeps on her bed in the background, the master unsatisfied pulls the servant girl to his exposed penis. She resists. * 9.

A couple on a blanket, with the man in the superior position as he mounts her, while she entwines her legs around him, holding him fast. * 13. A garden scene shows a man on a wall, as he "dallies" with a young maid-girl, who reaches up to touch his hands, likely to help him down. Probably a secret meeting with his young lover. * 14. Shows a beautiful woman at an open gate, while her lover passes by, she flashes an enticing look his way. He turns his head towards her, he is accompanied by a young servant- girl who carries his lute as he passes with his fan and gives her a good look. * 15. The last is a view of the male-scholar, as he sits at his desk and books, while looking out a large round window at the girl. She is wearing a lovely saffron robe, likely exposing her posterior to him in an inviting sexy stance. *** All of these lovely paintings show the most pleasant and joyful expressions on the face and especially in the eyes and lips. Books of this subject, style are vintage are scarce. The Chinese had a very naturalistic view and open attitude toward sex during this period. Love-making and erotic scenes of this subject were drawn in the most natural ways. People are shown with very pleasant "Yin & Yang" looks between men and women, and the act of "Clouds & Rain" [love-making] are done with pleasant and enjoyable expressions *** BINDING: The work is period bound and mounted with silk, each painting is on silk. The accordion folded book is bound in hard-wood covers. Nicely executed, mounted & bound in the traditional Chinese style. On the opposite pages to the paintings is a lovely hand-made, gold-flecked Chinese papery. A wonderful example of the best of Chinese painting and bookbinding art form. ***** Color scans can be sent by email.

        Monsr. J. Isabey's Exhibition Rooms, 61 Pall Mall / Salle d'Exhibition de J. Isabey, a Londres

      Published by J. Isabey, 1820. Colour-printed aquatint. Printed on wove Whatman paper watermarked 1820. In excellent condition. Image size: 7 ¼ x 9 7/8 inches. A fascinating view of J. Isabey's picture gallery in Pall Mall, London, by the celebrated American engraver William James Bennett. William James Bennett (1787-1844) was born in England, and received his artistic training at the celebrated Royal Academy. He garnered a reputation as a watercolourist and exhibited many fine landscapes at the Academy's annual exhibitions. Bennett was one of the principal members of the Society of Painters in Watercolours and helped establish watercolour as a popular medium of artistic expression in England. He displayed an exceptional talent at aquatint and during his career produced many fine prints for some the most lavish English plate books. He emigrated to the United States in 1826, and is best known for his views of American cities, including the Hudson Valley Region, Niagara Falls, and numerous port cities such as New York, Charleston, and New Orleans. Bennett's series of views of American Cities set a standard, and established a compositional formula, for topographical art in America. His views remain the most memorable and beautiful examples of the genre, and they exerted a lasting influence on generations of American artists. This beautiful image of Mr. Isabey's exhibition rooms in Pall Mall is not listed separately amongst Bennett's work, but according to DeSilva and Deak, he completed a number of aquatints in 1820, which are not recorded. It is possible that this picturesque interior scene is one of the images, which was not immediately attributed to Bennett. This charming work closely resembles images published by the leading English printseller Rudolph Ackermann, in particular an image depicting his gallery "The Repository of Arts". As in the Ackermann image, connoisseurs are shown enjoying the exhibition rooms in Isabey's gallery. Jean-Baptiste Isabey (1767-1855) was a French artist and what might be called "artistic entrepreneur". He managed to become Marie Antoinette's artist in residence for miniatures. Later, he designed Napoleon and Josephine's coronation and published drawings of his own work and others commemorating the event. The exhibition in London depicted here would have been more successful than it was, but it coincided with George IV's divorce, during which most British aristocrats fled to their country estates. Deak, William James Bennett p. 3-26; DeSilva, William James Bennett: Painter and Engraver , p. 39-42.

        A young Zachary Taylor reports on a profiteering commissary including selling whiskey to the officers at inflated prices.

"Autograph Letter Signed, ""Z Taylor Lt Col 8th Rgt U.S. Infy Comdg,"" 1 page, 8"" x 10"", Bay of St. Louis, [Louisiana], July 25, 1820, addressed in his hand on the integral address leaf to Colonel George Gibson in Washington complaining about an Army commissary inflating the prices of stores sold to officers. Fold separations expertly repaired, one separation affects a small portion of the signature, small loss from seal tear not affecting text, else very good condition overall.An early letter from the future president during his years in Louisiana with the 8th Infantry Regiment at Bay St. Louis where they had been charged with constructing a military road from the Pearl River to Bay St. Louis on the shore of the Gulf of Mexico. ""The Ass[isstan]t Comi[ssar]y of Subsistence at this place - Lieut B. Bradley, has made a practice of charging the Officers a very high percentage above the contracted price for such parts of rations[?] as they [?] from him on orders for their Subsistence; viz, flour at twelve & a half dollars pr barrell [sic], Pork at twenty, Whiskey at one dollar per Gallon & other parts in the same proportion?" This percentage he says he charges for his trouble, as he is not bound to issue, only on requisitions. The regulation says 'Asst. comys. of Subsistence are permitted to sell to Officers of the Army such articles of Subsistence as they may require, charging them the contract price, to which must be added the transportation ?" thus some of the officers have been compelled to pay from twenty to fifty per cent for the provisions they have drawn for their own use - the transportation being only twenty[?] five per barrell from New Orleans to this place. This has caused much dissatisfaction among them. But as I do not wish to interfere improperly with an officer of your department, I have thought it most advisable to refer this matter to you; being confident, that if he has exceeded his instructions you will correct him, and if he is authorised [sic] to charge the foregoing prices for provisions I wish you to advise me on the subject as it will at once put to rest any unpleasant feelings on the Subject.""The commissary, Bradford Bradley of Louisiana, had been commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant. Despite accusations of profiteering, Bradley received a commission as 1st Lieutenant in November 1820. He was honorably discharged from the service in June 1821. "

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.

        The City of New York in the State of New York, North America

      Springland, near Bristol, PA: published by William Birch [and] William H. Morgan, 100 Arch Street, [Philadelphia], 1820. Ccpper engraving, handcoloured, expert repaired tears and restoration to blank margin. Sheet size: 21 7/8 x 28 5/8 inches. A fine example of the third state of "the Birch View with the Picnic Party". "This rendering of New York from across the East River is a companion to William Birch's view of Philadelphia ... and was issued by the artist to arouse interest in a projected series of views of New York, which never appeared. Birch explains in his unpublished autobiography ... that he visited New York frequently in his endeavor to prepare an iconography of the city ... 'I took many turns to New York where I met with friendly reception and politeness. I had nearly completed a sett of drawings of that city which I meant to publish as a companion Vollum to the Philadelphia; but found profits of the undertaking was not equal to the expence of travelling and the support of my family.' 'The Drawing of New-York,' wrote Birch in the promotional literature for the view, 'is from the opposite shore of the Sound, as it appears from a great eminence, forming a chaste and grand subject, very similar to the choice of subject made use of by the celebrated Salvator Rosa; the Bay is seen, and the opposite bank of the North River over the busy town at sunset, contrasting in the foreground with the quiet grazing of a horse under the wreck of an ancient tree, upon a sequestered lawn on Long-Island.' The description was included in a prospectus for the first edition of Birch's Philadelphia views. In the second state of the engraving, a picnic party was substituted for the white horse, and other changes were made ... [The present example is from the third state], similar to the second, but with the imprint of William H. Morgan ... in this form the plate was reissued about 1820." (Deak). The view shows a family enjoying a picnic on Brooklyn Heights at a place that gives a nice panoramic view of Manhattan from the southeast and which shows all the major buildings of the City in 1802, the date depicted, beginning with the south end of the Battery on the left. Visible through the masts of the ship on the river is the steeple of Trinity Church (at the west end of Wall Street). Farther to the right are St. Paul's, St. George's, the Dutch Reformed Church and numerous other prominent features. Cf. Deak Picturing America 245; cf. Pyne Collection (1912) 29; Stauffer 2884; cf. Stokes I, plate 77 and pp.468-469.
