        Horses Sparring

      Printed in the lithographic studio of Delpech, Paris 1821 - This mid 19th century black and white lithograph after a drawing by Carle Vernet depicts 2 horses sparring with each other. Printed by Delpech, from Divers Croquis de Chevaux. Measures approximately 16" x 22 1/2". Antoine Charles Vernet, also known as Carle, was the son and pupil of the marine painter, Claude Joseph Vernet. From an early age he showed a tremendous aptitude for drawing and in 1782 was successful in winning the coveted Prix de Rome. Under the Empire, Vernet was awarded the Legion of Honor for his drawings of the Italian campaign. However, he is most noted as a painter and lithographer of horses, a subject to which he was devoted during the years of the Restoration. His work was so admired that Louis XVIII conferred the order of St. Michael upon him. At the beginning of the nineteenth century, horses were an invaluable aspect of everyday life. They provided transportation and sporting entertainment and thus, their breeding was of great importance. Artists celebrated the beauty and agility of the thoroughbred horse, as can be seen in Vernet¿s accomplished lithographs. Indeed, his equestrian passion was such that he himself was an avid horseman and just days before his death, at the age of seventy-eight, was seen racing as if he was a spry young man.

Octavo. 408pp. Rebound in modern quarter brown morocco and cloth boards, with morocco label gilt. Binding has light wear, and a slight crease to one corner, and is near fine; there is foxing and edgewear in the text, overall very good. Joseph Ray's copy with his ownership signature and the price he paid for the book on the first blank: "Joseph Ray, Cincinnati, Ohio. $1.50." Also laid in between page 280 and 281 is a small slip of paper (approximately 4" x 5") signed "Ray" and with complex equations on each side. Ray was a professor of mathematics and wrote several books on the subject, beginning in 1834 with *An Introduction to Ray's Eclectic Arithmetic,* the first of a series of six textbooks which became the most popular and widely used American mathematics textbooks of the Nineteenth Century. They also formed the basis for *Ray's Mathematical Series* of textbooks. As late as 1913, annual sales exceeded a quarter of a million copies a year, and total sales of the arithmetic books alone are estimated at 120 million copies. The success of Ray's *Arithmetic* series prompted his publisher to seek an author for a set of readers. They chose William Holmes McGuffey, who joined Ray on the faculty of Woodward College, and where he wrote the *McGuffey Readers* which surpassed even Ray's *Arithmetics* to become the most popular textbooks ever written.

        Sammlung der verschiedenen männlichen und weiblichen Tyroler-Costumes in 34 Figuren, gezeichnet von Franz Spitzer Miniatur-Maler in Innsbruck".

      [Probably Innsbruck, [around/after 1821]. - Series of 34 watercolours showing 17 male and 17 female costume figures. Wove paper (mostly waternarked Whatman 1821). C. 195 x 165 mm each. In custom-made half calf portfolio. Charming, beautifully executed set of 34 watercolours: two series of Tyrolean costumes (men and women) numbered 1 through 17. Spitzer, born in Vienna around 1780 according to AKL, worked in Innsbruck between 1810 and 1825 before moving to Salzburg (cf. Thieme/Becker XXXI, 393). He apparently was close with the Vienna-trained artist Johann Georg Schedler (1777-1866), a native of Constance. Schedler, who lived in Innsbruck from 1804 and witnessed the Tyrolean Rebellion, was known for his landscapes and costume scenes of his adopted country (cf. Wurzbach XXIX, 154). One of his published series, a collection of engravings showing the costumes of Tyrol and Vorarlberg, appeared in Innsbruck around 1824 (the Ferdinandeum copy containing 20, the Berlin copy 17 plates: Hiler 780 and Lipperheide Eba 10). The Lipperheide collection also includes a corresponding set of 34 watercolour plates, bound as an octavo volume (Eba 11). This book is from the library of Schedler himself and contains his autograph title: "Tiroler Volkstrachten nach Entwürfen von Joh. G. Schedler gemalt von Spitzer in Innsbruck". Spitzer, apparently, had forged an agreement with Schedler to produce a small number of watercolour copies of his costume series, which he would offer to customers willing to pay a premium for an original work of art rather than buy the published engravings. The present set thus constitutes Spitzer's second known watercolour version of Schedler's series of Tyrolean costumes, and the only one in the trade. - Occasional slight browning and duststaining; the colour shows exceptionally fine hues and tonal values; extremely well preserved. Cf. Lipperheide Eba 10 & 11. Hiler 780.

        Manuscript Journal of the Ship Ida From Boston Voyage to Valparaiso, San Blas, Guayaquil and back to Boston in 1821-23, Entitled]: Journal kept on board the Ship Ida of Boston from Boston towards N.W. Coast of America.

      1821 - [Primarily at sea], 1821-1823. Folio (31x19 cm). [188] pp. With two manuscript deeds, and four other sheets of manuscript laid in. Period brown quarter sheep with marbled boards, housed in a new light brown cloth clamshell box with green gilt lettered sheep label. Rubbed at extremities, lightly soiled. Some minor scattered foxing, else text is clean and very legible. Deeds chipped and lightly foxed. Old fold lines; one reinforced along folds, the other with a hole one inch by two, affecting text. Overall a very good manuscript. The journal details Ida's voyage in 1821-23 from Boston to San Blas in Mexico around Cape Horn, with stops in Valparaiso (Chile) and Guayaquil (Ecuador), and the return journey to the United States. The voyage went in several stages: at first, from Boston to Valparaiso (December 7th, 1821 - February 14th, 1822); then after a two-month furlough from Valparaiso to San Blas (April 12th - May 24th, 1822); then back to South America, to Guayaquil (August 2nd - September 4th of the same year); from there back to Valparaiso (October 11th - November 24th, 1822), and a return journey to the US (June 1st - July 6th, 1823). The journal methodically records the nautical details of Ida's voyage: wind and weather conditions, daily mileage, speed of the ship each hour, latitude and longitude, and geographical objects encountered and passed on the way. Captain Walker notes that he departed on the Ida from Boston harbor "with a heavy heart and thoughts of home," crossed the Equator on the 30th of December, and the next day passed the archipelago of Fernando Noronha (354 km offshore from the Brazilian coast). On the 25th of January she passed the Falkland Islands, and went through the Drake Passage: along Terra del Fuego "for eight leagues making in sharp peaks like steeples," Staten Land (Isla de los Estados) and Diego Ramirez Islands. On the 4th of February Ida rounded Cape Horn, and on that day Walker "saw a Rain Bow at midnight caused by the moon", two days later he observed a moon eclipse. Santiago's port San Antonio was sighted on the 13th of February, and the next day Ida arrived in Valparaiso. During the sailing to San Blas Walker noted the ship passing the Galapagos Islands, Cabo Corrientes (Mexico) et al; on return journey to Guayaquil - Islas Marias (Mexico) and Isla de la Plata (Equador). Ida arrived to Puna island at the head of Gulf of Guayaquil on the 4th of September. On the way back to Valparaiso she passed Juan Fernandez Island and stayed in port San Antonio, at the mouth of Maipo River for several days. During this part of the voyage Ida got caught in many storms, the note from 24th of October witnesses "Strong gales, squalls and rough sea; ship requires pumping every two hours." The journal contains an impressive entry describing the Valparaiso earthquake on the 20th of November 1822: "At 11 P.M. We was sudenly [sic] alarmed by a violent shock that effected the ship as if she had struck the bottom, all hands sprung on deck and cried out the ship ashore. on reflection knew it was impossible for her to have struck any bottom in so heavy a sea as was on at the time without bilgeing the bottom in. I then thought of a wreck of a vessel but lastly I imputed it to an earth quake." Aftershocks wrack the sea periodically for the next few days. On the 22nd of November they got word about the effects of the quake: "They informed us that there had been a heavy shock of an earth quake on shore and that Valparaiso had been nearly destroyed and had lost 23 lives in the fall of a Castle. St. Jago & several of the towns in the interior had suffered severely the inhabitants about the sea coast fled to the mountains for safety fearing that the sea would flow in upon them, animals of every kind on shore appeared to be affected by the shock." The two deeds pertain to land. They are marked as "Deed, Walker to Woodbury," and "Nancy Walker¿s share in the estate of Luke Woodbury - Copy." [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Fingal

      Printed in the lithographic studio of Delpech, Paris 1821 - This black and white lithograph after a drawing by Carle Vernet depicts Fingal, "a Prussian stallion." Measuring 16" x 22 1/2", the print shows mild foxing and a ragged left hand edge, evidence of previous binding. Antoine Charles Vernet, also known as Carle, was the son and pupil of the marine painter, Claude Joseph Vernet. From an early age he showed a tremendous aptitude for drawing and in 1782 was successful in winning the coveted Prix de Rome. Under the Empire, Vernet was awarded the Legion of Honor for his drawings of the Italian campaign. However, he is most noted as a painter and lithographer of horses, a subject to which he was devoted during the years of the Restoration. His work was so admired that Louis XVIII conferred the order of St. Michael upon him. At the beginning of the nineteenth century, horses were an invaluable aspect of everyday life. They provided transportation and sporting entertainment and thus, their breeding was of great importance. Artists celebrated the beauty and agility of the thoroughbred horse, as can be seen in Vernet¿s accomplished lithographs. Indeed, his equestrian passion was such that he himself was an avid horseman and just days before his death, at the age of seventy-eight, was seen racing as if he was a spry young man.

        Travels in Georgia, Persia, Armenia, Ancient Babylonia, &c. &c. During the Years 1817, 1818, 1819, 1820. (First Edition, 2 Volumes)

      Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brows, London 1821 - 2 volume set. FIRST EDITION. Signed binding. Early to Mid-twentieth century three quarter brown calf leather binding signed by J. Larkins. Compartmented, raised bands, tooled leather on spine. Illustrated with two hand-colored portrait frontispieces mounted on paper, 87 plates (some folding), including 5 hand-colored plates, and 2 large folding maps, the plates executed in different media, i. e., aquatint, line-engravings, stipple engravings and numbered I-LXXXVII (lacking plate LXXXIII) with 1 plate unnumbered, light occasional foxing and offsetting, corners bumped, top edges gilt others uncut, an attractive copy. Lacks plate list in volume I as is not uncommon. One of the most substantial books on Persia. Photos available upon request. Sir Robert Ker Porter (1777-1842) had been a court painter in St. Petersburg, and archaeological investigation and drawing were the principal reasons for the author's travels. In this copy the famous portrait of Fath Ali Shah is colored, in most copies it is not. One of Porter's aims was to correct errors in the drawings of earlier travellers such as Chardin and Le Bruyn. From Russia Porter travelled to Tabriz where he met Abbas Mirza with whom he spent a considerable time. He went on to Tehran with Abbas Mirza before going to Esfahan, Persepolis, and Shiraz. In Tehran he had an audience with Fath Ali Shah, with whom he was very impressed. "An intelligent and readable book." One of the greatest mines of information concerning the life and manners of the people of Western Asia at the beginning of the last century, and also with regard to the monuments, inscriptions, and other antiquities then known to exist in Persia and Babylonia, is the magnificent work of Sir Robert Ker Porter," Travels in Georgia, Persia, Armenia, Ancient Babylonia, etc., etc., during the years 1817-20," (Two volumes, London, 1821, 1822) equally remarkable for the "truth in what the author relates," and the "fidelity in what he copies" and illustrates by his numerous drawings, portraits, and sketches. From childhood loving and practising the arts, he had become a famous painter of international reputation, whose eminent talents, striking personality, and final marriage with a Russian princess had secured for him a social standing which enabled him, by his pen and brush, to reach circles hitherto but little influenced by the books of ordinary travellers and the scientific and often dry investigations of men of the type of Otter, Niebuhr, Beauchamp, and Rich. In his popularization of a subject which so far had stirred the minds of only a limited class of people, and in appealing, by his religious sentiment, the manner of his style, and the accurate representation of what he had observed, not less to the men of science and religion than to the aristocratic circles of Europe, on whose interest and financial support the resurrection of Assyria and Babylonia chiefly depended, lies the significance of Ker Porter as a Babylonian explorer. After extensive travels through Georgia and Persia, in the course of which the great monuments of Naqs-i-Rustam and Persepolis had received his special attention.

        A Treatise on the culture of the vine; with hints on the formation of vineyards in England. A treatise on the culture of the Pine-apple, and the management of the hot-house . third edition

      printed for Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, London 1821 - Contemporary green half calf over marbled paper-covered boards, the flat spine divided into six compartments by gilt fillets and a decorative roll, lettered in the second compartment, the others with repeat floral tooling Provenance: William Russell Grace (1832-1904, armorial bookplate) The Grace copy of the first combined edition of "the most important [works] on the culture of the vine and pineapple published during the eighteenth century, and it may be said that they laid the foundation for the improvements that followed" (Henrey). The two parts to this work were first published as separate treatises in 1790 (the vine) and 1779 (the pineapple), with second editions following in 1805 and 1796, respectively. The present third edition, the first time the two works had been published in combined form, is complete with ten plates: the plate list appears to call for eleven, but the fifth plate in the second part is not required. Speechly was a practical gardener who made his name working at Welbeck Abbey, the Duke of Portland's seat in Nottinghamshire, England. The results of his labours at Welbeck combined with the publication of the present treatises cemented his reputation as the one of the "best fruit and kitchen gardeners of his time" (Sandra Raphael). The reputation of his published works remains high: Edward Hyams in his Grapes under Cloches (London: 1952) praises this work as being "a model of the sound, practical, well-written . manual." Irish-born William Russell Grace, co-founder of W.R Grace and Co., was an American success story and one of the richest men in the country. He was also a noted philanthropist and served two terms as Mayor of New York. James M.
