        Rothelan

      Edinburgh - Oliver and Boyd 1824 - An attractivelyboundfirst edition of this novel by Scottish author John Galt. Galt's novels are best known for their depiction of Scottish rural life, tinged with ironic humour. He is also credited with the first known usage of the word, 'utilitarian', first used in The Annals of the Parish. During his lifetime, Galt's works elicited a largely positive and sustained critical interest. Such figures as Lord Byron, Sir Walter Scott, and Samuel Taylor Coleridge admired his writing and ensured his popularity until his death. Complete in three volumes. Condition: Rebound in half-calf bindings. Externally smart, with some minor shelfwear only. Internally, firmly bound. Ink signatures to half-titles. Pages have some tidemarks and some scattered foxing throughout. Alight loss to the final page of volume II, not affecting the text. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED with a GOOD ONLY interior.

Die Tochter von Herzog Georg I. von Sachsen-Meiningen und Louise Eleonore von Hohenlohe-Langenburg, am 13. August 1792 als Prinzessin Adelheid von Sachsen-Meiningen geboren, ehelichte am 13.

        Rosa Gallica Pontiana

      [Paris: Firmin Didot], 1824. More than with any other painter, Redouté&#39;s flowers are alive, and always shown at the ephemeral moment of their greatest beauty. Pierre-Joseph Redouté was one of the world&#39;s great flower painters. Born into a family that had been painters for at least two generations, Redouté went to Paris in 1782 with his brother where they worked as scene painters for the Théâtre Italien. Redouté painted flowers in his spare time. The search for subjects led him to the Jardin du Roi and eventually to Gerard van Spaendonck who made him an assistant. While at the Jardin du Roi, Redouté came to know Charles-Louis L&#39;Heritier, an amateur botanist and writer of independent means. He gave Redouté a full-time job as an illustrator, instructing him in plant anatomy. Redouté&#39;s scientific understanding of plants contributed greatly to the clarity of his depictions. But it was Redouté&#39;s work in stipple engraving and colour printing that was to be of the greatest importance. Stippling and the application of two or three colour inks to one plate were engraving innovations that Redouté brought to French printmaking, and these were brought to perfection in Les Roses from which this work comes. Redouté together with Claude-Antoine Thory, an ardent botanist and collector of roses, have together in Les Roses produced a work not only of great artistic merit, but also an invaluable scientific record as well. `Redouté and Thory knew, described and figured almost all the important roses known in their day. Included were many of the key ancestors of our present-day 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&#39; (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&#39;s time, and a number were dedicated to the memory of his friends and acquaintances, such as l&#39;Héritier de Brutelle and Ventenat. Cf. Cleveland Collections 807; cf. Dunthorne p 232; cf. Great Flower Books (1990), p 128; cf. Nissen BBI 1599; cf. Pritzel 7455; cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 8748.

        Journal Of A Second Voyage For The Discovery of A North-West Passage From The Atlantic to the Pacific; Performed in the Years 1821-23, In His Majesty's Ships Fury and Hecla.

      London: John Murray, 1824. - 4to. pp. 4 p.l., xxx, [1 leaf], 571, [1]errata, [4]ads. 9 engraved & lithographed maps (4 folding) & 30 engraved & aquatint (9) plates (4 folding). 12 text illus. (including diagrams, plan & music). A nice copy in contemporary blind & gilt-stamped calf, rebacked, corners renewed (a few surface abrasions to rear cover, some light foxing & offsetting). armorial bookplate of Edwyn Scudamore Stanhope, with his gilt crest on covers. First Edition. Parry was of the opinion that the Northwest Passage could probably be reached through Hudson's Bay. In 1821, he set out to investigate that possibility and to link up with John Franklin's overland expedition to the Coppermine River, and down to Coronation Gulf. He sailed through Hudson and Frozen Straits, explored Repulse Bay and proceeded west and north to Lyon Inlet. He passed the winter at Winter Island and then resumed his northward voyage, discovering Fury and Hecla Strait. The second winter was spent at Igloolik Island off the northeast coast of the Melville Peninsula.This account of the voyage and explorations conducted contains much information regarding the characteristics and social life of the Esquimaux of the region. Most of the plates, after drawings by Captain Lyon, illustrate the domestic life of the Esquimaux, their fishing and hunting practices, dwellings and tools, &c. An Esquimaux vocabulary is also included. Arctic Bib. 13142. Field 1184. Hill p. 226. Lande 1385. National Maritime Museum I 836. Sabin 58864. Smith 7965. TPL 1295.

        Rosa Damascena / Rosier de Cels

      Firmin Didot], [Paris 1824 - 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. Stipple engraving, by Chardin, after Redouté, printed by Rémond. Very good condition.

      Paris 1824 - Frederic Cuvier (1769-1832) & Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire (1772-1844) Histoire Naturelle des Mammiferes, avec les figures originales. Paris: 1824-42 This hansom lithograph of the Wolf, with original hand coloring, measures 13&#148; x 18&#148; and is in very good condition. This rare publication of mammals was originally published in 72 parts (to be bound in seven volumes) under the auspices of the Museum d'Histoire Naturelle of Paris. The animals were drawn from life mainly at the zoo Jardin des Plantes in Paris. The majority of the descriptions were by Cuvier, with Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire editing the work and providing occasional articles (indicating by his initials at the end of each article). The two final parts were edited and seen through the press by Cuvier&#146;s son. A quarto edit was started in 1826, but ceased publication (with the 13th part) in July 1833. These are among some of the most exquisitely rendered images of animals ever published. Cuvier has successfully brought each animal to life by his exceptional talent for detail without forgetting the characteristics that give them personality. ***If you frame up this item with Arader Galleries you can take a 50% discount off the listed price of this work of art.*** Cataloged by Josephine Arader
