        Rosa Rubiginosa nemoralis / L'Eglantine des bois [Small flowered Eglantine]

      Firmin Didot, Paris 1824 - Stipple engraving printed in black, after Redouté, printed by Rémond. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling. A rare uncoloured impression from the first edition of 'Les Roses': Redouté's most famous work, and perhaps the most celebrated flower book of all time. Pierre-Joseph Redouté, the most successful flower painter of all time, produced a work that was not only of great artistic merit, but also formed an invaluable scientific recordl. Redouté described and figured almost all the important roses known in his day, and included were many of the ancestors of today's roses. "The plates in 'Les Roses' have artistic value, botanical and documentary value, both for the species and cultivars still surviving and for those that have disappeared' (Gisele de la Roche). The roses used as specimens for the work were taken from the collections of Thory, the Malmaison gardens, and from other collections around Paris. Many of the flowers were novelties in Redouté's time, and a number were dedicated to the memory of his friends and acquaintances, such as l'Héritier de Brutelle and Ventenat. The plates of 'Les Roses' were executed by means of stipple engraving, a method ideally suited to render the nuances of tone found in Redouté's original water-colours. During a trip to London, he met the renowned engraver Francesco Bartolozzi and learned that the most successful impressions of stipple engravings came from well-used plates. Redouté's printers therefore struck a limited number of black plates to take the edge off the plate before printing in colours. This print was printed in black on ochre-tinted paper. The ochre tint has subsequently been removed to reveal Redouté's full mastery of the stipple-engraving technique that this image so effortlessly demonstrates. Cf. Cleveland Collections 807; cf. Dunthorne p 232; cf. Hunt, Redoutéana 19; Hunt, Printmaking in the Service of Botany 25; Nissen BBI 1599; Pritzel 7455; Ray, French 89; Stafleu & Cowan TL2 8747. [Attributes: First Edition]

Early owner signature to front free endpaper, annotation to following endleaf, interior otherwise clean. * Sole edition. This classic treatise is an incomparable guide to English legal education during the last quarter of the seventeenth century. Written at a time when formal English legal education had reached a low point, it prescribed a self-directed course of study based on reading, compiling commonplace books, attending courts, speaking with lawyers and attending an office or chambers. North, a member of a powerful political family, was a respected member of the Middle Temple and an important chronicler of the restoration-era legal community.

The quantity, quality, and long-term value of his scholarly work led to his election to the National Academy of Sciences in 1976. Virtually all of his major publications have been reprinted and/or translated. Provenance from the executor of Foster's library laid in.Condition:Foster's stamp to title and his acquired date on front paste down. Light rubbing to hinges else a very good copy.

        Autograph Letter Signed from the bluestocking sculptor and author Anne Seymour Damer to an unnamed male correspondent, concerning a 'favourite old Clock;'.

      1 April ; Upper Brook Street 1824 - 12mo, 3 pp. Bifolium. 28 lines. Text clear and complete. Good, on lightly-aged paper, with a trace of the mount adhering to the reverse of the second leaf, which is docketed by the recipient. The letter concerns her 'favourite old Clock', about which she expresses anxiety: 'the Man you now send to wind up the Clock is, I dare say, very clever in his Business, but as he almost constantly leaves it with somethig not right in Motion, striking &c I must therefore think that he is not accustomed to direct all the movements of such a Clock'. An associated item may indicate that the recipient was a member of the Vuillamy family of clockmakers.

        Rosa Bifera macrocarpa / La Quatre Saisons Lelieur

      [Paris: Firmin Didot], 1824. Stipple engraving, by Victor, after Redouté, printed by Rémond. Very good condition. A fine example of a composition by the greatest of all flower painters The present uncoloured plate was printed on ochre paper as it was realized that this gave a pleasing effect. The ochre background enhances the subtle gradations of tone achieved using the stipple engraving technique and gives a unique opportunity to appreciate the unrivalled artistry of both Pierre-Joseph Redouté himself and the master-craftsman he employed to translate his watercolour into a print of the highest quality. Redouté learned, whilst on a visit to London, that the most successful impressions of stipple engravings came from well-used plates. A number of black plates would thus be struck to take the edge off the plate before printing in colours. Redouté's printers struck black impressions - always on a paper with a distinct ochre tint - from the plates, and these early impressions were then combined with later colour-printed examples to form the de luxe issues of 'Les Roses'. Redouté's 'Les Roses' was issued in four formats: a large paper folio with coloured plates, a large paper folio with the plates in two states, folio with coloured plates, and folio with the plates in two states (the present plate comes from this final de luxe form). Gavin Bridson and Donald Wendel, in their magisterial 'Printmaking in the service of botany' catalogue (Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation, 1986, item 25) noted that Redouté 'For the interest of connoisseurs' included `a set of black plates as a parallel series to the usual color-printed versions' in 'special issues' of both the present work and his earlier 'Les Liliacées'. The number of these special issues that were produced is unfortunately not recorded but to judge from auction records over the past twenty-five years they are extremely rare: only four complete sets of 'Les Roses' in this format are recorded. The present print therefore comes from an edition that was severely limited, and is certainly much rarer than its colour-printed equivalent. Cf. Cleveland Collections 807; cf. Dunthorne p 232; cf. Hunt Redoutéana 19; cf. Hunt, Printmaking in the Service of Botany 25; cf. Nissen BBI 1599; cf. Pritzel 7455; cf. Ray French 89; cf. Stafleu and Cowan TL2 8748.

        Delectus Sententiarum Graecarum, usum tironum accommodatus

      London: Valpy, 1824. Duodecimo, owner's inscription on title-page and front free endpaper; some wear and loss, but a good copy in original plain roan binding. Early Australian schoolbook. A charming relic of early Australian education. This classical Greek textbook in its seventh edition, is in its original colonial binding and was originally owned by William Howe, member of a prominent Australian family. It is inscribed in ink "William Howe, King's School Parramatta March 15th 1852". William Howe senior arrived in New South Wales in 1816, and by 1820 was a magistrate. He had eight sons and two daughters.The King's School was founded in 1832 for the children of the colonial elite. It was customary for the young to receive a classical education that included Latin and Greek, and this text was obviously still in use almost thirty years after publication.
