        Plate LVI, Stock Dove, Rock Pigeon

      London 1820 - Prideaux John Selby (1788-1867) created some of the most memorable bird images of the 19th century. This expertly hand-colored copperplate engraving, Plate LVI, Stock Dove, Rock Pigeon, from his work “Illustrations of British Ornithology,” measures 27" x 21.5” and is in excellent condition with a few light stain marks. This well detailed engraving illustrates two large and well detailed birds, the Stock Dove and the Rock Pigeon. Both of these birds are members of the Columba genus. Expertly hand-colored in rich gray, these birds also each have accents of green and red around their necks and have red legs. Selby’s contributions to British Ornithology were rivaled only by those of John Gould, and yet his images were on a larger scale and less purely scientific, exhibiting Selby's distinctive and charming style. nBorn in Northumberland and educated at University College, Oxford, Selby was a landowner and squire with ample time to devote to the study of the plant and animal life at his country estate, Twizell House. As a boy, he had studied the habits of local birds, drawn them, and learned how to preserve and set up specimens. Later, Selby became an active member of several British natural history societies and contributed many articles to their journals. Although Selby was interested in botany and produced a "History of British Trees" in 1842, he is best known for his "Illustrations of British Ornithology," printed in 1820, the first attempt to produce a set of life-sized illustrations of British birds, remarkable for their naturalism and the delicacy of their execution. Issued in nineteen parts over thirteen years, the book consisted of 89 plates of land birds and 129 plates of water birds, engraved by William Lizars of Edinburgh.

        Journal of a Tour through part of the Snowy Range of The Himala Mountains, and to the sources of the Rivers Jumna and Ganges.

      London: for Rodwell and Martin, 1820 - Large quarto. Modern blue morocco, spine with gilt devices in compartments, covers with double gilt rules, marbled endpapers, sprinkled edges. Ex-Newcastle Public Library copy with accession marks on verso of title and small faint inkstamps occasionally throughout. Some light foxing, but generally fresh and clean throughout, a good copy. Large folding map. First Edition. Fraser came as a merchant to Calcutta in 1813 and remained in India until 1820. In 1815 he spent some time with his brother William, a political agent to General Martindale, in the Himalayan region. In June 1815 Fraser penetrated almost to the source of the Ganges, reaching the shrine of the Mother Goddess, Ganga Mai, at Gangotri. Thinking that this marked the source, he made no further effort to explore and returned to the plains with material for this very popular book. Rodwell and Martin also published a folio of coloured aquatints of Fraser's Himalayan sketches the same year, but the two are separate publications. Howgego F24; see Abbey Travel 498.

      École de Saumur, 1820 - 3 volumes in 2, octavo (183 × 115 mm). Contemporary full calf , flat spines, red morocco title- and numbering-pieces, compartments gilt alternately with repeated quatrefoil tools and a large vase device, boards panelled with a vine leaf roll with in a plain rule and hatched roll. Slightly worn, now skilfully restored, boards somewhat scratched and a gilt supralibros removed, light browning, occasional foxing, else very good, remains attractive. 15 well-executed, full-page pen and ink drawings. Neatly written and clearly legible manuscript copy of Bohan's important and uncommon work. Originally published in Geneva 1781, "The third volume, including some extracts of the other two was reprinted Paris 1821 under the title of 'Principes pour monter et dresser les chevaux de guerre.'" (Huth) The revision was carried out by the astronomer Joseph-Jérôme de la Lande, a friend of Bohan's. It is possible that this manuscript relates to this later revision, produced at l'École d'Instruction des Troupes à Cheval at Saumur it similarly reproduces sections of Volume I and II together with the entirety of Volume III. The signature appended to the title pages has in most cases been deliberately defaced, but that of Vol. III reads "Bussière, M. d. E., chef," perhaps Maître d'Equitation? The substantial third volume is entirely concerned with the selection, training and management of horses, particularly in the military context. A handsome manuscript copy of an uncommon text.

This was due chiefly to the dissemination, orally and by correspondence, of the discoveries of William Smith, but also to independent researches, particularly those by John Farley. Parkinson's three volumes reflect this progress . the work is remarkable for Parkinson's grasp of the previous and contemporary literature of geology and palaeontology and his historical discussion of it.

        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;

        Rosa Centifolia mutabilis (Cabbage rose "White Provence")

      Paris 1820 - Pierre-Joseph Redouté Illustrated plate from Les Roses Paris: circa 1820 Hand-colored stipple engraving 24&#148; x 20 1/2&#148; framed; framed in a beautiful gold leaf museum quality frame, mounted with archival materials and UV plexiglass Excellent condition Pierre-Joseph Redouté&#146;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 &#147;portraits&#148; 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.

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.

        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).

      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."
