        Plate 196 - Rosa Gallica Stapeliae Flora

      Paris 1820 - Pierre-Joseph Redouté(1759-1840). From Les Roses. Hand-colored stipple engraving. Paper Size: 14” x 10 1/2”. Extremely rare print, from one of probably only 5 large paper editions that were hand-colored by Redouté himself. Pierre-Joseph Redouté’s Roses are perhaps his most celebrated images, which the artist issued while under the patronage of the Empress Josephine, wife of Napoleon. The flowers are classical “portraits” which lack backgrounds or settings. The regal simplicity of the compositions allows the viewer to focus without distraction on the beauty and delicate complexity of the plants themselves. This image demonstrates the flawless and pristine French style of botanical art that Redouté pioneered and brought to a pinnacle of quality. Redouté is unquestionably the best-known botanical illustrator of any era. The decorative appeal of his original engravings has led to their modern reproduction, which in turn has popularized Redouté’s work in a way unique among botanical artists. Yet no reproduction can capture the great and subtle beauty of his original engravings from Les Roses. This magnificent engraving demonstrates the full mastery of his abilities, as the form of the rose is set off dramatically by Redouté’s masterful and rich modulations of tone and hue. Born into a family of artists in what is now Belgium, Redouté’s talent was recognized and encouraged from an early age. Eventually, Redouté had, as pupils or patrons, five queens and empresses of France, from Marie-Antoinette to the Empress Josephine and her successor, Marie-Louise. Despite many changes of regime in a turbulent epoch, he worked without interruption, eventually contributing to over fifty works on natural history and archeology. The luminosity of stipple engraving, a technique perfected by Redouté, is particularly suited to the reproduction of botanical detail. The medium involved engraving a copper plate with a dense grid of dots that could be modulated to convey delicate gradations of color. Because the ink rested on the paper in minuscule dots, it did not obscure the “light” of the paper beneath the color. After this complicated printing process was complete, the prints were finished by hand in watercolor.

        Rosa Gallica Stapelice flora (Stapelia-flowered variety of the French Rose)

      Paris 1820 - Pierre-Joseph Redouté Illustrated plate from Les Roses Paris: circa 1820 Hand-colored stipple engraving 24” x 20 1/2” framed; framed in a beautiful gold leaf museum quality frame, mounted with archival materials and UV plexiglass Excellent condition Pierre-Joseph Redouté’s Roses are perhaps his most celebrated images, which the artist issued while under the patronage of the Empress Josephine, wife of Napoleon. The present selection comprises the three images that are often considered the most magnificent roses that Redouté ever painted and engraved. Certain common themes run through them. In each, the flowers are classical “portraits” which lack backgrounds or settings. The regal simplicity of the compositions allows the viewer to focus without distraction on the beauty and delicate complexity of the plants themselves. Perhaps better than any other engravings that the artist ever made, these three images demonstrate the flawless and pristine French style of botanical art that Redouté pioneered and brought to a pinnacle of quality.

RARE FIRST EDITION OF WHAT IS STILL CONSIDERED TO BE THE MOST IMPORTANT AND MOST LAVISHLY ILLUSTRATED WORK ON NORMANDY AND ONE OF THE GREAT ILLUSTRATED FRENCH BOOKS OF THE 19TH CENTURY. <br> &#145;John Rushout, 2nd Baron Northwick (16 February 1770-20 January 1859) was an English peer, landowner and collector of art works.<br> He was born at St James&#39;, Westminster, London and was educated at Neuchâtel in Switzerland. In 1790 he visited Italy and while touring the continent became friends with many eminent men including Edward Gibbon, Horatio Nelson, Sir William Hamilton and his wife Emma Hamilton, Richard Payne Knight, and the Italian artists Antonio Canova, and Vicenzo Camuccini. While he was living at the Bay of Palermo the HMS Vanguard was stranded there, and as a result he was the first man in Europe to receive the news of the victory of the Battle of the Nile, hearing it from Nelson himself. He was also party to a less glorious incident of Nelson&#39;s career, as he was at Nelson&#39;s table in the flagship when a gun announced the execution of Caraccioli.<br> Rushout developed a love of antique art from Sir William Hamilton and with Hamilton and Payne Knight purchased several collections of coins and other works of art. His art collection was to include paintings by contemporary artists as well as Old Masters, miniatures, enamels prints, coins and other collectable items. He returned from Italy in 1800 when, on the death of his father, he succeeded to the titles of 6th Baronet Rushout, of Milnst and 2nd Baron Northwick. He became a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries (F.S.A.) in 1800. In 1832 he built a gallery for his collection at Northwick Park, near Moreton-in-Marsh, Gloucestershire, but this became too small. Northwick was a landowner behind many property developments in Cheltenham and purchased Thirlestane House there to allow access to any art lovers who wanted to admire his collection. He also had a gallery at Connaught Place in London, which he sold with its contents in 1838. He died at Northwick Park in 1859 aged eighty-eight.&#146;

Ouvrage très documenté et remarquable sur le plan historique. Il fut bien accueilli par le corps médical, notamment par Chomel, qui rédigea la critique dans le Nouveau journal de médecine, chirurgie, pharmacie : « M. Moreau de Jonnès a passé un grand nombre d¿années dans les colonies ; ses fonctions l¿ont placé presque sans cesse au milieu des malades ; il n¿est pas médecin mais il a observé l¿affection dont il parle ; son ouvrage offre par cela même un genre particulier d¿intérêt ¿ ». Cet ouvrage n¿a pas échappé au collectionneur E.G. Miner. ¿The author (Moreau de Jonnes) maintains that neither climate nor local conditions produce yellow fever, but that it is the result of un unknown but communicable virus, analogue to the agents of syphilis or smallpox.¿ (C.Hoolihan, catalog of the Miner yellow fever collection, 280). Alexandre Moreau de Jonnes (1778-1871), né près de Rennes, s¿engagea dans l¿armée et devint chef d¿état-major, puis entra dans l¿administration et s¿occupa d¿épidémiologie et de statistiques. Il a été considéré par Dodin et Brossolet comme le "premier épidémiologiste moderne", choix approuvé par Théodoridès. Jean-Noël Hallé, destinataire de l¿envoi, fut membre de la Société Royale de Médecine, premier titulaire de la chaire d¿hygiène publique, premier médecin de Napoléon Ier puis de Charles X, membre de l¿Académie de médecine et de l¿Académie des sciences.

        Les Cris de Paris: Amusement de Société.

      (Paris Berthellemot c. 1820) - A complete set of fifty playing cards, in the original box, comprised of: twenty-four hand-colored engravings of Parisian street vendors; a hand-colored card depicting a judge declaring "Peace, peace," which stops the game; twenty-four corresponding text cards with the cries of each vendor and a rhyme about each; and a "Carte Blanche." In addition, the original printed sheet with the rules of the game is included in the box with the cards. The occupations depicted on the cards include vendors of rabbit skins, vegetables, cherries, cheese, and umbrellas. Box covered with pink lacquered paper with a hand-colored illustrated paper label depicting vendors hawking their wares in the marketplace. Apart from some faint foxing to two of the illustrated cards, not affecting the images, and slight finger marks to the corners of the Judge card, the set is in remarkably fine condition. The box shows only the slightest shelf wear and a few spots of soiling to the rear panel. A rare set, seldom encountered complete: only one complete set has been recorded at auction in the last ten years. Gumuchian describes the set as ".très rare complète, dans un parfait état. De toute rareté." Cards measure 3 1/4 by 2 1/4 inches (83x57mm). (Gumuchian, 3231).

        Principles of political economy : considered with a view to their practical application

      John Murray, Albermarle-Street, London 1820 - First edition, with the rare 4-page publisher's catalog, dated April 1820, tipped in at the front. 8vo: vi, 601, [1]pp. "London: Printed by C. Roworth, Bell-yard, Temple-bar." on the colophon and title-page verso, as called for. Bound in the original publisher's drab blue paper-covered boards, uncut and largely unopened, with brown paper spine and remnants of the original printed label still legible. Internally, fresh and bright with only occasionally spotting, the original spine largely perished but restored sensitively by an expert conservationist, the boards somewhat stained and bumped but thoroughly original, the hinges reinforced. Provenance: small owner's book label, probably contemporary, partly effaced, reading T ? Cobb. Preserved in an attractive clamshell case with a leather spine label gilt. An unsophisticated copy of a truly rare, important, and desirable book, a cornerstone of economic thought and a major influence on other scientific endeavors, including the principles of evolution developed by Charles Darwin and Alfred Russell Wallace. OCLC Number: 2007966. The title of Malthus's final major work is "something of a misnomer, as the book was conceived as a series of tracts rather than a comprehensive and systematic treatise. . . . The Principles had only a limited impact at the time, and was severely criticized by J. R. McCulloch and [David] Ricardo; the latter prepared extensive critical notes. But more recently it has received greater recognition, largely as a result of the comments by J. M. Keynes in the 1930s. Keynes argued that Malthus's theory of effective demand provided a scientific explanation of unemployment, and that the hundred-year domination of Ricardo over Malthus had been a disaster for the progress of economics. Keynes believed that if economics had followed Malthus instead of being constrained by Ricardo in an artificial groove, the world would be a much wiser and richer place."

      Reading: Gedruckt für den Verfasser, 1820.. 100pp. Contemporary half calf and patterned boards. Corners heavily worn, boards worn. Light tanning and foxing. Very good. A legendary work of Pennsylvania German folk magic and remedies, in its exceedingly rare first edition. This work (probably based on earlier works of folk magic in the European tradition such as the various works attributed to Albertus Magnus), was reprinted many times and became closely associated with the Pennsylvania Dutch magic tradition known as Braucherei. Often referred to as the "pow- wow book" in translation (indeed, still in print today), it is a work of broad appeal, as so many of the spells, recipes and remedies are universally applicable to rural concerns, especially those pertaining to both human and animal health. The supposedly occult powers of the book figure in works of fiction as well. Unsurprisingly, this first edition appears rare, for all editions saw heavy use. Three copies located in OCLC - of these, only one copy in North America, at the American Antiquarian Society. The first copy we have ever handled of this book, although we have hoped to have one since we first learned of it forty years ago. AUSTIN 922. SHOEMAKER 1642. BÖTTE & TANNHOF 2462.

        The North American Review and Miscellaneous Journal, 238 Volumes (1820-1940)

      Boston; New York: Cummings and Hilliard; [et al.]. (1820-1940). First. Magazine. 238 bound volumes. Octavos. A near-complete run of the North American Review, America&#39;s most important literary journal of the 19th and early 20th Century. A consecutive run of volumes 10-248 dating from January 1820 through the final 1939-40 Winter issues, lacking only the first nine volumes, one quarterly issue from 1868 (October), and six monthly issues from 1894 (January-June). Most volumes are bound in full beige or blue cloth (13 are in half calf and marbled paper boards); volumes 174-248 have the original wrappers bound in.Founded in 1815, the NAR established itself as the most intellectual magazine in America. It quickly gained an international reputation and was a leading literary force in American letters throughout its 125-year history. Known for its long essay reviews of contemporary American and European literature, it also published scholarly articles on American society and current affairs, serving both as a platform for much of the most exciting social and literary commentary in the country, and as an arena for public debates on slavery and other controversial issues of the day.Most importantly, the magazine published contributions by some of America&#39;s best writers, ranging from Ralph Waldo Emerson to Thomas Wolfe, and including Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Walt Whitman, John Russell Lowell, Mark Twain, Henry James, John Steinbeck, and others. Among the many complete works featured in this long run are Emerson&#39;s lectures on "Michael Angelo," "Milton," and five other essays and lectures; Washington Irving&#39;s "The Northmen"; and Longfellow&#39;s "Defense of Poetry." Walt Whitman contributed seven essays over a 10-year period, including: "The Poetry of the Future," "Old Poets," and "Have We a National Literature," and Mark Twain contributed five satires and essays, including: "In Defense of Harriet Shelley," "To the Person Sitting in Darkness," and "Edmund Burke on Croker and Tammany."Also noteworthy is Chief Justice Lemuel Shaw&#39;s "Slavery and the Missouri Question" from 1820, and Lewis Cass&#39;s influential articles on American Indian Policy. Edgar Allan Poe&#39;s first published work, Tamerlane, and Other Poems, received its first national notice in the October 1827 number, Sidney Fisher published his influential review of Uncle Tom&#39;s Cabin in 1853, and Edward Hale published his famous early review of Whitman&#39;s Leaves of Grass in January 1856. During the Civil War Lowell became editor and published influential articles on Lincoln and Seward. After the war he contributed the many important lectures on literature that made him famous. Important works from the 20th Century include The Ambassadors by Henry James serialized in twelve monthly issues in 1903, "A Paper on Free Verse" by Robert Bridges from 1922, and five short stores by John Steinbeck, two of which: "The Red Pony" (a.k.a. "The Gift") and "The Great Mountains," were later published as the first two chapters of The Red Pony.An ex-library set with ink stamps or bookplates on most front pastedowns, a small embossed stamp or occasional ink stamp on most title pages, and an occasional ink number stamp on some bottom page margins. The 13 volumes in contemporary half calf are scuffed and worn, thus good only, about ten volumes have a few loose or detached leaves, and one short story by Thomas Hardy was neatly removed from the October 1903 issue, else overall a very good set. A scarce large assemblage of first appearances of major American literary works and articles. A list of notable selections is available. .

Erste englische Ausgabe, das deutsche Original war 1819 in Wiesbaden ohne Illustrationen erschienen. Für die englische Ausgabe entwarf Schütz prachtvolle Aquatintaansichten von Bacharach, Bingen, Boppard, Braubach, Johannisberg, Koblenz, Köln, Mainz, Oberwesel, St. Goar etc., im vorliegenden Exemplar in Abdrucken vor der Numerierung auf Papier "Whatman 1818" und "1819". P. O. Rave gelten sie als "schönste Folge englischer Rheinstiche [.] Sie zeichnen sich durch eine köstliche Weichheit der plastischen Formung aus mit zart behandelten Übergängen der Tonwerte, wodurch eine gepflegte Einheitlichkeit des Bildganzen erzielt wird" (Rheinbilder der Romantik, in: Wallraff-Richartz-Jahrbuch, 1924). - Der Frankfurter Diplomat und Schriftsteller Gerning (1767-1837) war unter anderem Bundestagsbevollmächtigter von Hessen-Homburg und Direktor des Vereins für nassauische Altertumskunde. Seine langjährige Freundschaft mit Goethe zerbrach auch am Vorwurf der Undankbarkeit des großen Dichters: "So geschah mir's mit meinem deutschen Rheinwerk, und ich bin nun kein Narr, ihm noch die englischen Prachtkupfer obendrein zu spenden" (aus einem Brief Gernings an Karl Ludwig von Knebel, zitiert nach Bode, Johann Ludwig Christ, S. 436). - Vorderes Innengelenk aufgeplatzt, Buchblock aber fest eingehängt. Wie stets etwas gebräunt und stockfleckig, acht Tafeln mit deutlicher Bräunung, die Ansicht von Mainz lose. Der elegante Einband minimal berieben, die Leinwandbezüge der Deckel mit schwachem Lichtrand. - Eines der schönsten Rheinbücher in sehr guter Erhaltung. *Abbey, Travel, 217. Schmitt, Rheinbeschreibungen, 84. Tooley 234. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
