        Flora Londinensis containing a history of the plants indigenous to Great Britain, illustrated by figures of the natural size. A new edition, enlarged by George Graves and William Jackson Hooker.

      G. Graves, London 1821 - 7 Bände. London, G. Graves, 1821. Gr.-Folio (51x32 cm). Mit 646 kolorierten Kupfertafeln. Grüne Halbchagrinlederbände der Zeit mit goldgepr. Rückentitel, Filetenvergoldung auf Rücken und Deckeln, Kopfgoldschnitt. (Gelenke fachgerecht restauriert). Hunt 650. - Nissen BBI 440. - Dunthorne 87. - Henrey 596. - Ein aussergewöhnlich schönes Exemplar der zweiten, um 214 Tafeln vermehrten, Ausgabe. Mit hervorragenden, sehr sorgfältig kolorierten Tafeln nach William Kilburn, James Sowerby und Sydenham Edwards sowie Graves und Hooker, die die zusätzlichen Tafeln für diese Ausgabe schufen. Der Text für die Neuausgabe stammt ebenfalls von Hooker.- Hier vorliegend eine den Bibliographien vollkommen unbekannt gebliebene und besonders begehrenswerte Variante. Normalerweise erschien die zweite Ausgabe von 1817 bis 1828 in 5 Bänden. Unser Exemplar mit 7 Drucktiteln für jeden Band, die alle mit 1821 datiert sind. Sowohl von der ersten, als auch von der hier vorliegenden zweiten Auflage gibt es kaum Exemplare, die in allen Punkten miteinander übereinstimmen. "Different copies vary in the number of plates" (Henrey 596). Die 5-bändige Ausgabe von 1817-28 enthält komplett bis zu 647 Tafeln, wovon eine lithographiert ist. Dieser Ausgabe wurde meist auch ein Index beigegeben. Das vorliegende Exemplar enthält 646 Tafeln, wobei keine lithographierte Tafeln zu finden ist. Die Bände sind nach Linné systematisch geordnet und dementsprechend auch nicht mit einem Index ausgestattet.- Das Werk brachte William Curtis, Apotheker und Leiter der berühmten Chelsea Physic Gardens, erste Beachtung ein. Später sollte er mit dem Botanical Magazine einen Markstein in der Geschichte der botanischen Zeitschriften setzen. Finanziell war dem umfangreichen Unternehmen, trotz Unterstützung und großzügiger Subskriptionen von Lord Blute kein Erfolg beschieden. Das hohe Können der Künstler, die diese Flora gestalteten, haben den Illustrationen eine dauerhafte botanische Qualität verliehen, die seitdem selten wieder erreicht worden ist.- Breitrandig und von sehr guter Gesamterhaltung. Die Textblätter teils mit Tafelabklatsch, vereinzelt auch im Rand leicht stockfleckig, die Tafeln nur minimal betroffen und zum allergrößten Teil tadellos sauber und farbfrisch. Die Breitrandigkeit kommt vor allem den größten Kupfern zugute, sind diese doch häufig sehr knapp im Rand oder sogar angeschnitten.- Mit gestoch. Exlibris auf den Spiegeln.- Great Flower Books, 2. Aufl., S. 89 "a splendid work". Sprache: Englisch Grüne Halbchagrinlederbände der Zeit mit goldgepr. Rückentitel, Filetenvergoldung auf Rücken und Deckeln, Kopfgoldschnitt.

        Archive of Autograph Manuscripts.

      This clergyman graduated from the New Brunswick Theological Seminary (oldest Protestant seminary in North America) in 1821 and began serving the parish of Stone Arabia, New York, in 1822, along with churches in local small communities such as Manheim, Danube (Indian Castle), Salisbury, Columbia, Second Herkimer, Ephratah and Remsen Snyder's Bush; Ketcham was a close friend of Martin Van Buren, who as president appointed him as U.S. Indian Agent in 1839, assigned to relocate some Potawatomi Indians from Michigan and Indiana beyond the Mississippi River; he served as a hospital chaplain for a time during the Civil War, and spent his last years on a farm near St. Louis. A fascinating archive totalling perhaps 200 to 300 manuscript pages, 1820s-30s vintage, consisting of a dozen or more actual manuscripts sermons actually preached by Ketcham -- often followed by his notes indicating when and where he had preached each particular sermon. These vary in size from quite small (32mo) to 8vo, and in length from several tightly-lettered pages to a dozen or more pages. All are fairly neatly penned in Ketcham's small, sometimes miniscule hand in brown ink on moderately age toned stock with occasional foxing. In addition, also present are two small (16mo and 24mo), thick sewn pamphlets containing Ketcham's extensive and detailed Hebrew grammar notes and a small sheaf of varying-size notes on theological matters and partial sermon notes. It is most unusual to find actual working draft manuscript sermons, as delivered, showing how RCA (Reformed Church in America) clergy presented their message in early 19th century New England. A remarkable collection certainly worth further research.

        Heinrich von Kleists hinterlassene Schriften, herausgegeben von L. Tieck.

      Berlin: Gedruckt und verlegt bei G. Reimer 8vo (19.5 cm; 7.75"). lxxviii, 290 pp.. 1821 Posthumous publication for the first time of a selection of Kleist's plays and poetry (he committed suicide in 1811). Tieck, the editor, presents here "Prinz Friedrich von Homburg," "Die Herrmannsschlacht," "Fragment aus dem Trauerspiel Robert Guiskard," and several poems. Kleist's life was a troubled one financially, psychologically, and creatively. The Encyclopaedia Britannica (11th ed.) characterizes him as "by far the most important North German dramatist of the Romantic movement, and no other of the Romanticists approaches him in the energy with which he expresses patriotic indignation. Later 19th-century blue-green marbled paper–covered boards; foxing and browning as typical of the paper with but a few odd spots additionally, and perhaps six leaves with a stain as from a spill, extending across text but not hampering reading. Very readable in both senses; a decent, solid copy of an important work of German literature.

        A collection of 24 broadsides and other ephemeral publications.

      Following the achievement of independence from Spain in 1821, El Salvador along with the rest of Central America had a brief flirtation with being part of Mexico, but with the fall of Iturbide and the collapse of the first Mexican empire, El Salvador and the rest of Central America formed a confederation, with Guatemala being the more equal of the supposed five equals.The Confederation itself collapsed as unworkable in 1838 and following the dissolution of it, the political and social history of El Salvador was characterized by a wrenching dynamic of Liberal vs. Conservative forces each wanting to control society and the government. But added to that were the ambitions of its neighbors, especially Guatemala, and occasionally Honduras and even Nicaragua. Then there was the problem of Britain and its citizens' investments in the country and the need to protect those interests. This assemblage provides rare documents on many of the issues and the personalities of the era. Of the 26 publications, we find only 8 to be held in U.S. libraries, mostly at only one library (two being held at two). A full list available and the condition statement below is keyed to it.

        Journal of a Voyage for the Discovery of a North-West Passage From Atlantic to the Pacific; Performed in the Years 1819-1820, In His Majesty's Ships Hecla and Griper

      John Murray, London 1821 - First Edition, An excellent book in near Fine condition, London, John Murray, 1821, Quarto, 10.5 inches in height by 8.25 inches in width, 6 engraved maps and charts (4 folding) tables (1 folding). Modern tan calf spine, half calf over marbled boards, decorated spine with gilt embellishments, red Moroccan title label with gilt titles. Very clean and solid copy with normal light offsetting from maps and plates and some very light foxing. Near Fine. Parry was given command of the Hecla and Griper for the first expedition of 1819. Parry sailed up Baffin Bay and through Lancaster Sound and Barrow Strait to the south side of Melville Island, encountering much less ice than anticipated. The expedition over-wintered at Winter Harbour on the south side of Melville Island. Freeze-up delayed Parry until August 1820 but he was still able to continue west to Dundas Peninsula and south to Banks Island before turning home to England. Parr's voyage was to be recognized as one of the most important in the history of Arctic exploration. He proved that Lancaster Sound opened to a passage to the west; he charted a vast area of the unknown arctic and proved it was possible to spend the winter north of the Arctic Circle without being in grave danger. He was the first to reach 110 degrees west longitude which earned him and his crew a cash reward of L 5,000. Upon his return to London, Parry was promoted to the rank of Commander and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society. A cornerstone book of Arctic Exploration in near Fine condition, please email any inquiries. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Mes relations avec le Conseil des prises, le Dépôt de la Guerre, le Corps législatif devenu la Chambre des Députés.

      Paris 1821 - In-8 de ([4)-320 pp., couvertes d'une écriture fine et très lisible (environ 20/25 lignes par page), texte réglé, maroquin cerise à long grain, dos à nerfs orné de filets et de larges fleurons dorés, encadrement de simple filet doré sur les plats, tortillon doré sur les coupes, tranches dorées, guirlande intérieure (Thouvenin). Le passionnant témoignage inédit d'un haut fonctionnaire à la fin de l'Empire et au début de la Restauration. Après avoir consacré en 1819 deux volumes de notes manuscrites à son expérience à la Direction de la Librairie, Dampmartin (1755-1825) poursuit le déroulé de ses souvenirs, en relatant les autres fonctions officielles qu'il eut à remplir, à, savoir : 1. C'est le 12 avril 1811 que Dampmartin fut nommé conseiller au Conseil des prises, fonction qu'il devait cumuler avec celle de censeur impérial exercée depuis un an : c'est que cette place avait été l'objet d'une intense négociation accompagnant celle qui devait lui faire épouser Aurélie de Durfort, belle-soeur du général de Beurnonville : à cette époque se mêlant des unions de la nouvelle société qu'il voulait créer de ses propres mains, Napoléon avait laissé à Beurnonville le choix d'un époux pour sa belle-soeur en contrepartie de la rupture des fiançailles entre le comte Armand de Durfort avec Mlle de Glanes. Il s'agissait donc de trouver des émoluments convenables pour le jeune ménage, ainsi formé, et l'on voit par là que ce nouveau poste ne devait pas grand chose aux capacités ni aux inclinations de Dampmartin. 2. C'est le 20 avril 1816 qu'il fut nommé par Louis XVIII bibliothécaire du Dépôt de la Guerre en remplacement de l'infortuné Jean-Baptiste Massieu (1743-1818), ancien évêque constitutionnel de l'Oise, et conventionnel régicide, qui, ayant souscrit à l'Acte additionnel, était visé par la loi d'exil. Cette nomination dans laquelle était intervenu le duc de Feltre arracha l'intéressé à l'ennuyeuse sinécure de l'inspection des Postes du département de la Seine, qu'il venait juste d'intégrer. Mais il n'y resta pas longtemps, placé sous les ordres de son ancien chef d'Ecquevilly d'ailleurs : la retraite de Clarke pour raison de santé entraîna aussi le renvoi de son protégé. 3. Quant à la Chambre des Députés, c'est uniquement en raison de sa nomination par le Sénat conservateur (6 janvier 1813) qu'il obtint d'y siéger comme représentant du Gard lors de la Première Restauration. Il ne fut jamais élu à proprement parler, et ne figure évidemment pas dans la fameuse "Chambre introuvable". Cet ensemble de fonctions successives somme toute très subalternes n'était pas de nature à satisfaire un gentilhomme ayant de surcroît un ménage à entretenir, et le texte est émaillé de considérations sur les occasions d'autres postes envisagés ou proposés (au Conseil des Invalides en 1820, par exemple), sur les pensions et décorations obtenues et/ou quémandées. Précieux exemplaire de l'auteur lui-même avec double vignette ex-libris : légendée ("Bibliothèque de A.H. Dampmartin, commencée en 1775") et armoriée, contrecollées l'une au-dessous de l'autre sur les premières gardes. Très bel exemplaire.

Slechts de factorijen te Palembang, Bandjermassin, Makassar, Timor en het eiland Ternate waren nog in het bezit van de Nederlanders.De verhouding tussen Sultan Mahmud Badaroedin II van Palembang en de Nederlanders was gespannen; gewapende bendes waren op de been gebracht en er waren voorbereidingen getroffen voor verzet. Er werd besloten om een eskader landingstroepen uit te zenden om het Nederlands gezag op de oostkust van Sumatra te herstellen: de zgn. eerste en tweede expeditie tegen Palembang volgden.De 24ste juni 1821 had generaal H.M. de Kock de vijandelijke werken in de rivier die de toegang naar de stad afsloten, na hevige tegenstand overmeesterd. Op de 26ste had De Kock het anker laten vallen en sultan Badaroedin had zich bereidwillig verklaard om de regering af te staan en zich onder toezegging van lijfsgenade aan de Nederlandse troepen over te geven. Hier zien wij het moment dat Sultan Badaruddin (gekleed in het rood met tulband en parasol boven zijn hoofd) aan boord wordt gebracht.Prijs: € 975,-.

Pickering was an innovator in the use of cloth in bookbinding. "Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the great American President, alsobecame a collector of miniature books. In May 1929 he wrote to Henderson" My own tiny books are neither very rare nor very numerous but I continuemy interest in them'. He possessed 162 items, most of them under 3 incheshigh and none of them exceeding 4 inches. As late as April 1973, theSwann Auction Galleries in New sold some Pickering Diamond Classics,namely the Milton, the Cicero, the Patriarch and the Catullus which wereinscribed on the flyleaf by Roosevelt" - Louis Bondy. "Although notassembled in a specially created travelling case, Pickering's DiamondClassics' published in London and comprising English, Greek, Latin andItalian classics, serve a very similar purpose. Due to the greateditorial care and the superb printing and binding that went into theirmanufacture, combined with the importance of their contents, these littlevolumes are now very eagerly collected by many minibibliophiles, and evenmore generally by lovers of finely produced books. All of them exceedhowever the 3-inch limit". - Louis W. Bondy. Miniature Books,1981. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Grundlinien der Philosophie des Rechts. Berlin: Nicolai, 1821.

      - First edition of the last of Hegel's major works to be published in his lifetime, with the usual additional title-page: Naturrecht und Staatswissenschaft im Grundrisse. Zum Gebrauch für seine Vorlesungen. In the preface comes Hegel's famous metaphor for philosophy's ability to understand reality only retrospectively: 'die Eule der Minerva beginnt erst mit der einbrechenden Dämmerung ihren Flug' (xxiv). ' a complete system, in which the concept of a sociology dominated by the idea of the State is laid down. It turns away from the apparent chaos of the democratic advocates of individual right in favour of an overwhelming sense that liberty cannot exist apart from order, and that the vital connexion of all parts of the body politic is the source of all good. As the family is, without contract, the instinctive realization of the moral life, so, equally without contract, the State is the fullest expression of the moral spirit, where interdependence is combined with free will. The State is the perfection of man as a finite entity, whence the spirit moves into the absolute existence of art, religion and philosophy' (Printing and the Mind of Man 283). Provenance: front free endpaper with ownership inscription of one Wilhelm Thorke, and beneath it in another hand 'Von meinem lieben Thorke [?] erhalten am 9. Februar 1833'. PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 8vo, xxvi, 355, [1] pp., contemporary marbled boards, rubbed, worn at edges, later paper spine label to which some loss, lightly foxed throughout though less so than usual, otherwise a very good clean copy without library stamps and inscribed only on the front free endpaper.

        The Pastorals of Virgil...

      London: 1821. 2 vols., small 8vo, xii (-vii/viii), 12, xxiv (-i/iv), 214 pp; [I], [215]-592 pp. With an engraved frontispiece to each volume, and 230 illustrations including 17 woodcuts and 6 engraved plates by Blake, and four other designs by Blake engraved by others. Original full rose sheep, backstrips lettered in gilt, slight wear to joints and one headcap repaired. A very fine set internally perfect. Presentation copy inscribed by Thornton to his daughter. A very fine copy of a scarce work in any condition as it was issued for use in schools; the impressions of the woodcuts in this copy are the richest I have ever seen. Blake contributed 17 woodcuts to this volume (as well as 10 other plates, of which he engraved six) which were not well received; nor were they well treated by the publisher who cut down the blocks and printed them poorly. Only a few proofs before they were trimed are now extant. These blocks have remained amongst the most influential woodcuts in the history of British art and their influence can be seen from Calvert and Palmer all the way up to the present day. The blocks were saved by Linnell and were printed not long after Blake's death as separate impressions (perhaps by Calvert), and again in 1977 as a set by Iain Bain. Any impressions are now very hard to find. For a full discussion of this wonderful book, see Essick's masterly monograph A Troubled Paradise... (San Francisco: John Windle, 1999).

        Original Photograph

      Sixteenth president of the United States. Pioneering Scottish-born photographer Alexander Gardner (1821-82) -- whose work is often mistaken for that of his one-time employer, Mathew Brady -- photographed Lincoln on seven occasions, including some of the best known Lincoln portraits taken near the end of the president's life. Offered here is an original print produced by pioneering 20th century photography historian/collector FREDERICK HILL MESERVE (1865-1962). Known as "America's first great photograph collector," Meserve saved countless original Brady and other negatives from destruction and assigned numbers to Lincoln photographs ("Meserve numbers") still used today. Glossy heavy stock 8" X 10", n.p., n.y. [ca. 1940s]. Very good. Minor edgewear. Famed studio portrait depicting a seated President Lincoln in three-quarter's view facing right, left hand holding a newspaper and right hand holding eyeglasses. On the verso, near the bottom as was his custom, Meserve boldly pencils in his distinctive hand: "Abraham Lincoln / (Meserve No. 54) / By Gardner Aug. 9, 1863." The immediacy of any Meserve print is startling, for we've grown accustomed to seeing later generation reproductions of this portrait in books and other forms. A superb, rare piece printed by the preeminent photography historian of the 20th century.

        Note sur le calcul des teintes que la polarisation développe dans les lames cristallisées'. Pp. 101-112, 167-192, 312-316 in: Annales de Chimie et Physique, vol. 17 (Dix-Septieme). BIOT: 'Remarques de Biot sur un rapport lu, le 4 juin 1821, à l’Académie des Sciences, par MM. Arago et Ampère' (pp. 225-258). ARAGO: 'Examen des Remarques de M. Biot' (258-272); ARAGO & AMPÈRE: 'Rapport fait l'Academie des Sciences le lundi 4 juin 1821 sur un memoire de M. Fresnel, relatif aux couleurs des lames cristallisées douées de la double réfraction' (80-101).

      Paris: Crochard, 1821. - First Edition of a 'major controversy . . . one that marks the first public encounter between a selectionist and a wave theorist' (Buchwald, 1989, p. 214) -- Fresnel and Biot -- that also involved their contemporaries Arago and Ampère. 'The nasty confrontation between Arago and Biot that Fresnel so vividly described marks an epoch in the history of the wave theory' (Buchwald, p. 238). Entire volume offered. 448 pp; plates (2 folding). Contemporary boards. Edges slightly worn, else Very Good. Fresnel's 'Calcul des teintes' paper, as it is referred to by Jed Z. Buchwald in his The Rise of the Wave Theory of Light: Optical Theory and Experiment in the Early Nineteenth Century (1989; the bibliographic entry for the paper is 1821c), was reprinted in Vol. I, pp. 609-653 of Fresnel's Oeuvres (1827). In this paper Fresnel 'detailed his new hypothesis that light is always asymmetric' (Buchwald, p. 390). Biot's paper is reprinted in Fresnel's Oeuvres (pp. 569-590), as is Arago's (591-600); the trio forms much of the basis for Buchwald's discussion of the complex problems -- and Fresnel's eventual solution -- of diffraction, polarization, etc., on pp. 212-62. On pp. 227-8, Buchwald quotes a passage from Fresnel 1821c, 611-12, then follows: 'However, with this hypothesis alone one cannot explain any better than before why Fresnel's and Arago's rules [for the interference of polarized light] work. Moreoever, as it stands one would be at a loss to explain why the asymmetry sometimes rotates and sometimes does not -- whereas before one could at least understand that a wave might have both a longitudinal and a transverse component. Accordingly Fresnel did not introduce this new hypothesis without also suggesting a unifying physical interpretation for it: namely, that the asymmetry in question occurs entirely in the plane of the wave, so that light waves are always completely transverse. Fresnel carefully emphasized this idea in the spring of 1821, and it is worth quoting from him at some length because it is the only evidence we have from near the period when he developed his new understanding [my emphasis].' Buchwald then quotes from Fresnel 1821c, 635-36, and follows, "Implicit in this physical hypothesis is a new, and difficult, understanding of the function of the principle of interference, one that permits it to be used in a very general manner" (p. 229). Buchwald begins chapter 9, 'A Case of Mutual Misunderstanding', by quoting the letter from Fresnel to his brother Léonor that 'so vividly described' the Arago-Biot confrontation, then adds, 'Scarcely two years after Fresnel had won the prize for his diffraction memoir, the Academy ordered printed, over Biot's explicit and public objections, Fresnel's account of chromatic polarization. The members did not accept the report, but apparently only because Arago had insisted that they do so (and he in any case had the report printed in the Annales almost immediately [Arago and Fresnel 1821] [pp. 80-101 in the volume offered here; pp. 553-68 in Fresnel, Oeuvres]. This was a stunning personal victory for Arago and a stinging public defeat for Biot. Years before, Biot had snatched the field away from Arago; now, by proxy at least, Arago took it back. . . . The events that culminated in this bitter confrontation are somewhat tangled, in part because Fresnel's memoir was not printed until the Oeuvres. Instead, Arago printed Fresnel's 'Calcul des teintes' in three parts in the Annales. However, at the end of his report Arago remarks that the first memoir discussed in it was submitted to the Academy on 7 October 1816, and it was followed by 'a supplement' on 19 January 1818. There were in addition several notes that Fresnel gave to Arago and Ampère (almost certainly just shortly before the report was written)' (Buchwald, p. 238; the remainder of the chapter, pp. 239-51, discusses Arago's and Biot's polemical reports).

        A treatise on the diseases of the chest . . . with a preface and notes by John Forbes, M.D.

      T. and G. Underwood, London 1821 - Laennec, René Théophile Hyacinth (1781-1826). A treatise on the diseases of the chest, in which they are described according to their anatomical characters, and their diagnosis established on a new principle by means of acoustick instruments. Translated by John Forbes (1787-1861). 8vo. [4], vii-xl, [2], [1], 2-437, [3]pp. 8 engraved plates by John Pope Vibert (1797-1865). London: T. and G. Underwood, 1821. Modern half morocco gilt in antique style, in a half morocco drop-back box. Old library stamp almost invisibly removed from margin of title with no loss of text or margins. Plates slightly foxed but a fine copy from the Max Miller collection. Later owner’s bookplate on front pastedown. First Edition in English of Laennec’s De l’Auscultation médiate (1819), printed in an edition of only 500 copies, compared to the total printing of 3600 copies that comprised the two states of the first edition in French. Laennec’s invention of the stethoscope, which he announced in his 1819 treatise, provided the first adequate method for diagnosing diseases of the thorax and represented the greatest advance in physical diagnosis between Auenbrugger’s percussion and Röntgen’s discovery of x-rays. Forbes abridged parts of Laennec’s work, omitted others, and condensed the remainder, reducing it to about half of its original length. Although he greatly underestimated the influence the stethoscope was to have on medicine, Forbes nevertheless was as responsible as anyone else for introducing and popularizing the use of the stethoscope in the English-speaking world. According to a letter from Forbes to Laennec, all 500 copies of the small English printing had been sold by September 1823. This suggests that the initial reception of the stethoscope was slow in England; however, by the time of the second English edition (1827), demand for the instrument had widened exponentially.

("nuit de mardi") - 8vo. 3 1/2 pp. To [Ernest] Feydeau, with 4 lines of verse, Characteristically exuberant nocturnal note by Flaubert to his close friend Ernest Feydeau (1821-1873). He begins, in translation: „I do not know who wrote 'I would like to throw the world on its face!' - a desire which I share. It sounds Biblical? But it is maybe from Shakespeare?" He continues with some literary gossip ("quel bouquin emmerdant!") and closes with a poetic fragment that he found in his papers which Flaubert stipulates "Please note: should be shouted:"Let me celebrate youWomen, treasures of love that the AlmightyDeigned to send us on a merciful dayTo relieve our boredom!"

        Bolling's Dam, Petersburgh, Virginia

      Philadelphia: published by M. Carey & Son, 1821. Aquatint by Hill after Shaw, coloured by hand. Laid on archival mat board, 3 inch repaired tear in lower margin, not touching the image. In fine French washline mat. A rare example of a print from an extremely rare work that is now considered to be a 'milestone in American printmaking ... a foundation book for American color-plate publication, being the first publication in the United States of larger colored landscapes essentially scenic in effect" (Koke). This sweeping image of Bolling's Dam, Petersburgh, Virginia is from a suite of twenty plates published under the general title 'Picturesque Views of American Scenery'. The original intention had been to publish 36 plates in six parts but the work was abandoned after only four parts had appeared (published primarily by Matthew Carey & Son). Thomas Ash acquired the rights to the set and republished them in 1835. Any examples from either edition are now rare. Joshua Shaw, a British-born landscape artist of note, was inspired by the magificence of the American landscape ("in no other quarter of the globe are the majesty and loveliness of nature more strikingly conspicuous than in America."). Shaw set out to popularise the picturesque in America. His beautiful images were skillfully interpreted by engraver John Hill and the results can rightly be said to have been one of elements which led to the growth of what became the Hudson River School of landscape painting. The popularity of the Hudson River School from the mid-1820s onwards, paid dividends for the Shaw's work as well and Thomas Ash was encouraged to reprint the series in 1835. Deak 315.18; cf. Fielding 644-662; cf. Howes S345; Koke, Checklist of John Hill 54 (1st state); cf. Reese, American Color Plate Books 5; cf. Stauffer 1343; cf. Stokes III:567; cf. Sabin 79935.
