        Antique Print-KESTREL-MALE-BIRDS OF PREY-FALCON-Selby-1821

      - Plate XVII: 'Kestril - Male.' This plate shows a male Kestrel. Copperplate engraving / etching on a vellin type paper with original hand colouring. Description: This rare original antique print originates from 'Illustrations of Ornithology. London' by John Selby published 1821-1834. Imperial folio.Artists and Engravers: Prideaux John Selby (1788 - 1867) is often called the British Audubon, for his magnificent work, Illustrations of Ornithology, was the first British natural history to render all its subjects in their exact life size, as Audubons was the first to do so for American birds. The connection actually goes deeper, for in 1826 Selby took lessons in technique from Audubon in Edinburgh, and this is evidenced in the marvelous skill with which Selby portrayed his subjects. In depicting the birds in their life size, Selby produced prints of a larger size than any other prints of the period than those of Audubon, whose prints followed shortly. Selby employed the best British engravers and colorists of the time, and the large size of the prints allowed the most advantageous display of the fine work for which these prints are known. Finely engraved, accurate in detail, wonderfully colored, and strong and dramatic in appearance, Selbys prints are some of the best figures of British birds that have ever been published. (C.E. Jackson, Bird Illustrators, p.33). Condition: Good. General age-related toning and light staining/soiling from handling as visible on image. Light foxing and some spots, mainly in the margins. Please study scan carefully. Storage location: DP-P5-09 The overall size is ca. 19.3 x 24.4 inch. The image size is ca. 10.6 x 16.1 inch. The overall size is ca. 49 x 62 cm.

In 1818, Lyon (1795-1833) was sent along with Joseph Ritchie by Sir John Barrow to find the course of the Niger River and the location of Timbuktu. The expedition was underfunded and lacked lacked support. A year later, due to much officialdom they had only got as far as Murzuk where they both fell ill. Ritchie never recovered and died there, but Lyon survived and travelled a little further around the region. Exactly a year to the day he left, he arrived back in Tripoli. Lyon travelled in Arabic dress, and being fluent in Arabic, was able to gain insights missed by more conventional travellers. On his return, he travelled on Parry's expedition to the Arctic as Commander on board the Hecla The hand-coloured plates, after drawings by Lyon, are particularly attractive.

        Manuscript Land Grant to Nathan Elliott in Van Diemens Land

      Sydney: 25 July 1821. Folio; manuscript in ink on vellum, 303 x 390 mm; in fine original condition, with suspended paper seal. A good, early grant by Macquarie as fifth governor, with the signatures of Charles Whelan as witness and Frederick Goulburn as Registrar. Of special interest is the signature of the second witness: Hector Macquarie, the governor's nephew, affectionately known to his uncle as the "Hero Hector". This land grant dates from just after the period when Hector accompanied Macquarie and his wife on their official tour of Tasmania.By this grant Nathan Elliott received seven hundred acres of land in the district of Jarvis, Van Diemens Land, on the Strathallan Creek. The area, which became known as Tea Tree Brush, is to the north of Hobart between Brighton and Richmond. Here Elliott built an important early house, Strathallan, and the grant is today a heritage property at the centre of a working farm.This land grant is on vellum, with a good signature by the governor, and is complete with Macquarie's seal of the colony of New South Wales. When it was issued in 1821, Macquarie had already lost his fight against John Thomas Bigge, the royal commissioner and the man who forced his resignation as governor. History has treated Macquarie more fairly since: the colony can be seen to have enormously prospered under his leadership from 1810 to 1822, and it is now celebrated as the Age of Macquarie and the period when New South Wales found its independent entity.Nathan Elliott arrived as a free immigrant in Van Diemen's Land 11 October 1819 on the David Shaw (his fellow passengers on the voyage included Richard Read, headed for Sydney). 21 months later years Elliott was granted this large parcel of land to which he subsequently added by further grants. By April 1837, Elliott had 395 acres in the parish of Drummond, 736 acres in the parish of Jarvis and 10 acres at Brighton. He began construction of the Strathallan homestead in the 1830s, and it was completed by 1842. He further expanded the property by acquiring neighbouring land and by 1862 it comprised 1,130 acres. It was listed on the National Trust Tasmanian Heritage Register, which describes it as "Single storey stone house with hipped roof with boxed eaves and return verandah on three sides. The front has 3 bays separated by pilasters, a central 4-panel timber door with fanlight and half sidelights and large 12 pane windows either side. Includes stone barn and stables"

        Reflksy golovnago mozga. Izdanie vtoroe. (In russischer Sprache: Die Reflexe des Hirns). 2. Auflage als Buch.

      II, 179 S.. 8. OBroschur. Broschur bestoßen, gerändert, mit Knickfalte und am Rücken mit Einriss nicht beschitten und nicht aufgeschnitten. Auf dem Innenspiegel mit dem Exlibris der Bibliothek Rudolf Virchow Virchow (1821-1902), Anthropologe und Mediziner, hat durch seine Arbeiten zur Zytologie nichts weniger als einen quasi kopernikanischen Paradigmenwechsel in der Medizin ausgelöst. Sechenov (1829-1905) hat auf seinem Studienaufenthalt 1856-59 in Deutschland (Berlin, Leipzig, Heidelberg) u. a. neben Helmholtz, Du Bois-Reymond auch Virchow kennen gelernt mit vorliegendem Werk wurde er zum Begründer der modernen russischen Physiologie. Das Werk selbst (EA 1866) war zunächst nach Erscheinen verboten, weil es als Angriff auf die öffentliche Moral empfunden wurde. Indem Sechenov auch 'höhere' Bewußtseinsprozesse strikt kausalistisch und naturalistisch auf materiale Ursachen im Organ des Hirns zurückführt, kann seine Arbeit als Versuch gewertet werden, 'Gott' oder außerhalb des biologischen Subjekts liegende letzte Ursachen für Bewußtseinsinhalte aus der Wissenschaft zu eskamotieren.

        ST. VINCENT, WEST INDIES MSS. / SLAVERY / PLANTATIONS: "VIEW OF THE PROSPECT PLANTATION, THE PROPERTY OF SIR WILLIAM STRUTH ST. VINCENT WI 1821 TO SIR WILLIAM FROM AN OLD FRIEND IN S.V. - 25 JULY 1821."

      Manuscript, brown ink on wove paper (Very Good, some minor remains of former album backing to verso), irregular dimensions (due to protruding title register), maximum: 22.7 x 28 cm (8.75 x 11 inches). - [St. Vincent, W.I.], 1821. A well-executed and highly attractive manuscript view of Prospect Plantation, St. Vincent, presented to Sir William Struth, the estate’s proprietor and subsequently the island’s governor; a unique and historically important graphic artifact from the twilight of slavery in the British West Indies. - This beautifully rendered original pen and ink drawing captures Prospect Plantation, one of St. Vincent’s prime estates, as it appeared in 1821, during the island’s last great sugar boom. The property was owned by Sir William Struth, the former mayor of Bristol and the future Acting Governor of St. Vincent. The view is taken from a perspective looking southwest, from a height above the plantation, which is location on the southernmost tip of St. Vincent. Prospect’s Great House, windmill (for grinding cane) and supply buildings occupy the top of a rise, surrounded by palms, while the cane fields cover the slopes below. The sea beyond features several sailing vessels, while Bequia, the northernmost of the Grenadines, about ten kilometres distant, appears in the background. The anonymous artist, who dedicated the work to Struth in the lower register, was clearly not a professional draftsman, yet managed to create a highly attractive work, in the style of a line engraving. Sir William would certainly have treasured this gift from "an old friend". Prospect’s original wooden plantation buildings, as depicted on the present view, do not survive, having perished during the later 19th Century. However, the Prospect name lives on to this day as one of St. Vincent’s prime residential and vacation areas, conveniently located only a few kilometres from the island’s capital, Kingstown. Original manuscript drawings of West Indian plantations from the slavery era are today extremely rare, and the present work is especially well executed, depicting a particularly important property. The survival rate of such works is incredibly low, and the present view was preserved only because it seems to have been formerly pasted into an album. St. Vincent is a relatively small (345 km2 (133 sq. miles)), yet fertile island, part of the Windward Islands of the West Indies. It was first colonized by France in 1719, but was ceded to Britain, in 1763, following the Seven Years’ War. An initial orgy of property speciation on St. Vincent was cut short, as for much of the next three decades Britain’s control of the island was hotly contested by both France and the native Carib peoples. It was only in 1796, that firm and permanent British control of St. Vincent was established. For the next 40 years St. Vincent supported a thriving plantation economy, producing sugar, coffee, tobacco, indigo and corn, albeit supported by the ignoble institution of slavery. The plantations generated immense wealth for Britain, grossly in excess of what one might expect from St. Vincent’s size and population. However, the plantation economy collapsed following the abolition of slavery (phased in between 1834 and 1838), although manumission gave the majority of St. Vincent’s residents some level of freedom for the first time. Prospect Plantation’s proprietor, Sir William Struth (1763 - 1850), was for many years a major figure in both St. Vincent and in his native West Country of England. He was a very wealthy Tory politician, landowner and merchant. Based in Bristol, a major port for West Indian trade, Struth’s first major Caribbean landholdings were the Clifton Hill and Endeavour plantations in Trinidad, which he purchased in 1802, and subsequently flipped for great profits. He used the proceeds to purchase a fine estate at Redlands, Gloucestershire, and to advance his local standing. He was elected to the Bristol city council in 1812, and served as the city’s mayor from 1814 to 1815. Struth was knighted in 1815. Shortly after giving up his mayoral chain, Struth purchased at least three major plantation properties in St. Vincent: Fancy, Richmond Hill and Prospec

        Prinzessin Brambilla. IV, 310 S., 1 Bl. Druckfehler, IV S. Anzeigen. Mit 8 Kupfern in Sepiamanier nach Callot'schen Orig.-Blättern (von C. F. Thiele). Hellbrauner bedruckter Orig.-Pappband mit farb. Rückenschild (Kanten und Kapitale leicht berieben).

      Breslau, Josef Max, 1821. - Erste Ausgabe, im bedruckten Orig.-Lieferungspappband. Das Werk wurde angeregt von Callots phantastischen Blättern zu Commedia dell'arte-Szenen; acht Radierungen sind beigegeben. Auch Anlehnungen an Goethes 'Das Römische Carneval' sind erkennbar. Die Handlung beginnt am Vorabend des römischen Karnevals. Das sich entwickelnde Ineinander von alltäglicher Liebesgeschichte, Maskentreiben und phantastischem Geschehen in einem mythischen Fabelreich wird zum Strukturprinzip: Das "bunte Maskenspiel eines tollen märchenhaften Spaßes" hetzt "allerlei Gestalten in immer schnelleren und schnelleren Kreisen dermaßen durcheinander, daß man sie . gar nicht mehr zu unterscheiden vermag." "Die ältere literarische Forschung lehnte das Capriccio als überspannt und uneinheitlich ab; mittlerweile ist es jedoch als eines der bedeutendsten Werke humoristischer Erzählkunst gewürdigt" (KNLL). – Kleiner gekrönter Initialstempel auf dem Titel unten. Exlibris Jean Furstenberg (Hans Fürstenberg) und ein weiteres älteres Exlibris. Leicht stockfleckig, unbeschnitten. Mit den Hemdchen vor den Illustrationen. – Goed. VIII 496, 54; Salomon 144.

        Catalogue de la Bibliothèque de M. Paris, Architecte et Dessinateur de la Chambre du Roi, Chevalier de son Ordre; Suivi de la description de son Cabinet

      Engraved frontis. port. & six folding engraved plates. 2 p.l., vii, [1], 40, 256 pp. 8vo, cont. red straight-grained morocco (upper cover with small ink-stain, some foxing), panelled in gilt, outer border elaborately gilt, flat spine gilt, a.e.g. Besançon: Librairie de Deis, 1821. The catalogue of the library and collection of antiquities of Pierre-Adrien Pâris; the best professional library of the early 18th century. He bequeathed it to the city of Besançon. It contained a number of the essential books on architecture, about 1500 manuscript architectural designs by Pâris, and paintings and drawings by Fragonard, Boucher, and Saint-Aubin. Pâris (1745-1819), was architect to Louis XVI, designer of the royal cabinet, and directed royal festivities at Versailles, Marly, and Trianon. The collection reflects his deep appreciation for the classical architecture of Greece and Rome, where he journeyed several times. During these trips, he sketched buildings and artifacts found at Pompeii, Herculaneum, Paestum and other sites, which, along with other drawings, compose the 1500 architectural designs described here. These experiences prepared him to serve as director of the Académie de France in Rome under Napoleon, where he was responsible for excavations at the Colosseum. The library has considerable sections on architecture, history, the arts of antiquity, etc. The first 40 pages provide a biographical sketch of Pâris. Pages 1-146 enumerate 777 lots of books. Pages 147-222 contain a description of his cabinet (509 lots). The book concludes with an index of authors and artists. The engravings depict bronzes, terra cotta sculptures, marble statues, and other unique items in the collection. Nice copy, apart from the foxing. From the library of Bernard H. Breslauer (his sale Christie's NY, 22-23 March 2005, lot 660). ❧ N.B.G., Vol. 39, cols. 209-10.

        A Visit to North America and the English settlements in Illinois, with a winter residence at Philadelphia; solely to ascertain the actual prospects of the emigrating agriculturist, mechanic, and commercial speculator.

      London Drury 1821 - First edition. 8vo., xii, 224pp., 3-line errata with "directions to binder" slip at end, lithograph frontispiece and 13 lithograph plates, scattered light foxing, contemporary polished calf gilt, a fine copy. Welby visited the English settlement in 1819, made a cursory examination, and failing to find 'all the comforts of home,' concluded that it was a failure. In spite of the hostile attitude of the writer, the book presents a valuable picture of western life and conditions and gives an idea of the difficulties which the promotors of the English settlement had to contend with.

        Porcus troianus o sia la porchetta. Cicalata ne le nozze di messer Carlo Ridolfi veronese con madonna Rosa Spina riminese

      Bologna: Nobili, 1821 8vo (209x144 mm); contemporary wrappers (small losses to the spine); (2), XVI, 134, (2 blank) pp. A nice copy. Uncut.SECOND AUGMENTED EDITION. Before the title-page is a Notice (not described in ICCU) which mentions the first edition printed in Rimini in 1813. The name of the author is given only under the form of an anagram, Giri di Luna, in the dedication at p. III.This work by the canon from Savignano Luigi Nardi, though written as a "cicalata" (entertaining ludic poem) for the marriage of Carlo Ridolfi from Verona to Madonna Rosa Spina from Rimini, represents a real treatise on the history and art of making the porchetta (roast pork). According to Nardi, the only true porchetta is that traditionally made in Romagna, the author's region, which has nothing to do with that produced in Naples or Bologna. Nardi then refers that in the ancient Rome cuisine with "porcus troianus" was meant a pork stuffed with various meats, which once on the table was opened, often in a spectacular way, to release the precious content, as in the famous Homeric episode of the Trojan horse (cf. L. Bartolotti, La porchetta, sapori di storia e di tradizione, in: "Porcus troianus: la storia della porchetta in un trattato dell'Ottocento", facsimile reprint of the present edition, Rimini, 2006).Catalogo unico, IT\ICCU\SBLE\006492; B.I.N.G., 1338; Westbury, p. 158.

        Du Système industriel.

      A Paris, chez Antoine-Augustin Renouard 1821 - in-8, [4]-XX-311 pp., broché, couv. d'attente de papier violine moucheté. La structure des écrits de Saint-Simon a toujours été complexe ; et ce volume du Système industriel n'échappe pas à la règle. Il s'agit de la première édition sous forme de livre, donnée collectivement à 12 pièces et pamphlets, qui avaient fait l'objet d'impressions séparées après le procès de l'auteur, entre juin 1820 et janvier 1821. Cet ouvrage forme à son tour la première partie seulement d'un ensemble, car elle fut complétée l'année suivante, en 1822, par un second volume in-8 de 220 pp., reprenant le contenu de 7 brochures également publiées séparément, mais d'une diffusion extrêmement confidentielle. Moins connue que son Catéchisme, où se lit la doctrine saint-simonienne dans son état de (presque-) achèvement, l'?uvre marque un moment important dans la pensée du maître : la partie intitulée "Considérations sur les mesures à prendre pour terminer la Révolution" articule puissamment question politique (celle qui se posa aux révolutionnaires dès la Constituante, et devait hâter tout le XIXe siècle : comment "terminer" la Révolution ?), question économique et question sociale, ces dernières encore dans les limbes des penseurs, mais que l'esprit visionnaire de l'auteur anticipait comme les grands enjeux du nouveau siècle.

Keverberg also added a lengthy preface and notes to Bosch's manuscript. Founded in 1818, Frederiksoord, near Zwolle in the Drenthe province, was a prototype free to enter and to leave agricultural colony projected for 1500 settlers and their families, the first of 3 such free (of totally 7) „Koloniën van Weldadigheid" (the others were Wilhelminaoord and Willemsoord) founded and funded by »The Society of Benevolence«, a trust of enlightened nobles, high officials and businessmen with philantrophic, macroeconomic impetus, patronised by Prince William Frederick (who also gave Frederiksoord it's name). The expressed goal of the colonies was to provide impoverished people (of which many had drifted into unemployment, poverty, neglect and subsequently also crime during and after the Napoleonic Wars) with employment and education, therefore offering tools for maintenance as well as for social and economic reintegration. Evaluations on the founder's intentions nowadays differ. Whereas some praise them as the creators of one of the most remarkable social experiments, based on 19th century Utopian thinking on the social order, others stress that they basically wanted to clean land for future profits on a large scale, by the means of exploiting labour and accompanied by social segregation, humiliating surveillance as well as correction and punishment. According to a contemporary articel in the Brockhaus encyclopedia the settlers had to be disciplined, clean and thrifty, otherwise their salaries and even natural produce was retained. „Still, being a Lowlands pauper just after the Napoleonic wars can't have been much of a picnic. Federiksoord was, to be fair, less punitive than the younger colonies at Veenhuizen where inmates were walled in to prevent escape but, looking at the dreary wastelands of Drenthe stretching out in every direction, it is hard to imagine where to escape to other than the bottle. Van den Bosch's record in introducing forced agriculture to the Dutch East Indies has won him few accolades from post-colonial historians but there is no doubt that his intentions here, while hardly charitable, do share some attributes of social reform with contemporaries like Robert Owen." (Cites with many thanks to Richard Neylon, ILAB). In Frederiksoord the »Society of Benevolence« today still has its offices. Furthermore, there is a guesthouse, a school of horticulture, and restaurated colony's cottages, in which the early colonists lived. The „Koloniën van Weldadigheid" are properties intended to consider for nomination for UNESCO World Heritage List. Although well available in institutional holdings this book is particularly hard to find. Cover strongly worn, edges and corners bumped, spine missing in bigger parts. Title page with four tenderly crossed letters, otherwise inside clean and with no stains.

        Wood engraving of a stormy night with a blasted tree (left) and a crescent moon (right), the sixth in his famous series of Virgil designs first published in Robert John Thornton, The Pastorals of Virgil (1821). This impression printed no earlier than fall 1825 after John Linnell acquired the wood blocks. Single print on thin India paper, mounted, matted, and framed.

      London: 1821 (i.e. c. 1830s or later?). Single print on thin India paper, mounted and framed. Blake created 17 woodcuts for 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 trimmed 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. Most Linnell impressions are darkly printed; some are over inked. This a good one.For a fuller discussion, see Essick's masterly monograph A Troubled Paradise... (San Francisco: John Windle, 1999). Bentley, Blake Books, 504. Bindman 602-18. Easson and Essick I, X. "They are visions of little dells and nooks and corners of paradise, models of the exquisitest pitch of intense poetry... such a mystic and dreamy glimmer as penetrates the inmost soul" Samuel Palmer.

        Precaution : A Novel

      London: Henry Colburn and Co. Public Library, Conduit Street, Hanover Square, 1821. First Printing of the author's rare first novel (very rare, as here, in the British edition), complete in three volumes. 12mo: [2],307,[1]; [2],301,[1]; [2],315,[1]pp, vol. III, pp. 139 and 272 misnumbered 189 and 172).

I (Hays, Book-Binder, 7. Richmond-street, Derry). An excellent set, with tight bindings (barely scuffed) and generally clean, bright pages. BAL 3825 (oddly, making only passing reference to this edition, although the Standard Novels edition [London, 1839] is given an entry of its own [BAL 3889]). Spiller & Blackburn, p. 18-19. ¶ Revision of first New York edition, "made apparently by the proof-reader and not by the author." (Spiller & Blackburn) Cooper wrote Precaution on a dare. Warren Walker (James Fenimore Cooper: An Introduction and Interpretation) records it this way: "In the customary practice of the day he was reading aloud to his wife one evening from a current English novel, but found the story dull. Throwing it aside, he declared, 'I could write a better book than that myself.'" To make good his boast, Cooper wrote Precaution, in imitation of contemporary English domestic novels, such as those of Jane Austen and Amelia Opie. In fact, when the novel appeared anonymously in New York (and later, London), it was credited to an English woman. The publisher, A. T. Goodrich, later surprised the public when it revealed that Precaution was authored by a gentleman from New York. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. Fine.

        Formulaire pour la préparation et l'emploi de plusiweurs nouveaux médicamens, tels que la noix vomique, la miorphine, l'acide Preussique, la strychine, la vératbine, les asalcalis des quinquinas, etc.

      A Paris, Chez Méquignon-Marvis Libraire, 1821, kl.8, VII, (1), 84 pp., Halbledereinband d.Zt. feines Exemplar. Rare First Edition!Francois Magendie (1783-1855) "was the pioneer of experimental physiology in France. His Formulaire introduced into medical practice several of the newly discovered alkaloids, notably morphine, veratrine, brucine, piperine, emetine, as well as quinine and strychnine. " G&M"Although Magendie was interested primarily in experimental physiology, he did not neglect medical practice. For many years he suffered from not being on a hospital staff, which would have facilitated the clinical study of new medicines. In 1818, following a competitive examination, he was named to the Bureau Central des Hôpitaux Parisiens but until 1826 he had no official hospital assignment and had to rely on the understanding of his friend Henri Husson in order to observe treatments and to give a clinical course at the Hôtel-Dieu. In 1819 he was requested to give a course at the Athénée Royal. In 1821 he published the first edition of his Formulaire pour la préparation et l'emploi de plusieurs nouveaux médicaments, a therapeutical manual much used by physicians. Magendie introduced into medical practice a series of recently discovered alkaloids strychnie, morphine, brucine, codeine, quinine, and veratrine. He also generalized the therapeutic use of iodine and bromine salts. Contrary to the dominant opinion among the older physicians, Magendie favored the use of chemical substances over that of natural drugs and, in addition, had great confidence in pharmacological experiments on animals. He did not hesitate to test on himself all the substances that were shown to be harmless in the animal experiments." M.D. Grmek, Complete Dictionary of Scientific BiographyGarrison & Morton Onl. No. 1846
