      Paris 1824 - Frederic Cuvier (1769-1832) & Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire (1772-1844) Histoire Naturelle des Mammiferes, avec les figures originales. Paris: 1824-42 This splendid lithograph of a primate, with original hand coloring, measures 13 1/2 ” x 20 1/4” 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’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

Good. In a brown half morocco and cloth slipcase. "This is certainly one of the most thorough, complete, and authentic treatises, relating to the Border Wars of the West, ever printed. The fine portraiture of aboriginal character, the narration of the minutest incidents of camp, treaty, and war, and the style of simple candor adopted by a scholarly mind, all commend the narrative to our judgment, and attract our interest in its progress" - Field. "Not only the principal authority on Harrison, but also one of the most exhaustive and dependable sources on events of the War of 1812 in the western country, Tecumseh's uprising, etc." - Howes. "The work is scarce and each year increases in price" - Thomson. This copy is particularly desirable, having been inscribed by Harrison to William L. Stone: "To Wm. L. Stone, Esq. With the respects of W.H. Harrison." Stone (1792-1844) was a New York State printer and newspaper editor, an anti-slavery advocate, and an author of several notable historical works, including the life of Joseph Brant. He was appointed by President Harrison as the U.S. Minister to the Hague in 1841, but recalled shortly thereafter by President Tyler, following Harrison's death. HOWES D158, "aa." STREETER SALE 1333.

        Rosa centifolia / Rosier a cent feuilles

      [Paris: Firmin Didot], 1824. A fine example of a composition by the greatest of all flower painters Pierre-Joseph Redouté's most famous work, 'Les Roses', was issued in a number of forms, the most desirable of which included the plates in two states. 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 25 years they are extremely rare. Only five complete sets of 'Les Roses' in this format are recorded. The plates of 'Les Roses' were executed by means of stipple engraving, a method ideally suited to render the nuances of tone to be found in Redouté's original water-colours. During a trip to London, where he met the renowned and talented engraver Francesco Bartolozzi, Redouté learned 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 for both 'Les Roses' and 'Les Liliacées'. 'Les Roses' was issued in thirty parts between March 1817 and March 1824, with each part containing six plates. 'Les Roses' was available 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 last format. This plate was printed in black on an ochre-tinted paper. The ochre tint was subsequently removed and the print was expertly hand-coloured to match the style and quality of the original coloured examples. 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, with expert later hand-colouring, by Couten, after Redouté, printed by Rémond. Very good condition.

        Elements of Political Economy. Second Edition, Revised and Corrected

      London, Baldwin, Cradock, and Joy, 1824.. Octavo. Pp. viii, 299, (1) publisher's ad of ?The History of British India?. Hardcover, contemporary full smooth calf, rebacked with handsome mottled calf, new endpapers, all edges sprinkled; leather slightly rubbed at extremities. The 3 points in the Errata have been corrected in minute, very handsome contemporary hand in the appropriate places, of which two are on the same page. In overall fine condition. An excellent copy, with surprisingly bright interior, in handsome binding. ~ Second, revised and corrected edition, by the ?Author of The History of British India?, an attribution which was removed in later editions. James Mill (1773-1836), British historian, philosopher, and economist. The first edition of ?Elements of Political Economy?, ?Mill's masterpiece?, appeared in 1821. According to his son, John Stuart Mill, it originated in 1819 in instructions given to him by his father during their daily walks. The abstracts of these lessons, prepared by the son, served the father as notes from which to write his book. The work is considered as a summary representation of contemporary theories, in particular those of Malthus and Ricardo. It is said that Mill's principal services to political economy were indirect, among them to have been the father and the teacher of J. S. Mill. Several of the major alterations in Mill's work were founded on criticisms made by his son. (Palgrave. 1894-1901). Kress C.1295. Goldsmith 24051. Einaudi 3893. OCLC 6783509.

        [Oriental romances; a collection of his fictional works in first edition.]

      London: Richard Bentley,, 1824–47. 9 works in 24 volumes. Bound in handsome uniform mottled calf by Rivière & Son, boards with small Greek key border in gilt, spines gilt in compartments with red morocco labels, the first title listed below top edge gilt, others uncut, the rest all edges gilt. Some titles with small inkstamp of Robert Inglis on verso, engraved bookplate on front pastedowns. Joints lightly rubbed, but a magnificent collection of most of Morier's fictional output. First editions of all nine works, including four presentation copies from the author, most inscribed "From the Author" at the head of title, but the sixth inscribed to Sir Robert Harry Inglis Bart. "From his faithfl. & ever obliged friend, the author" on half-title (cropped, just shaving one letter). James Justinian Morier (1782–1849), diplomatist and novelist, was born in Smyrna of Huguenot descent, son of the British consul-general of the Levant Company at Constantinople; his mother was daughter of the Dutch equivalent. After education in England, James learnt the Levant trade in his father's business. He visited Persia as secretary successively to Harford Jones and Sir Gore Ouseley and acted as aide to Persian dignitaries in London. He published two critically acclaimed travel books – A Journey through Persia, Armenia and Asia Minor (1812) and A Second Journey (1818) – before beginning the sequel of novels which brought him popularity and critical acclaim: the first and best of which, the Adventures of Hajji Baba of Isphahan (1824), displays his humorous and perceptive portrayal of Persian life and an easy style. "There is still considerable literary interest in Hajji Baba, and in Morier's memorable evocation of Persian life and character, in Europe, America, and the Middle East" (ODNB). The recipient of one and perhaps all of the presentation copies, Sir Robert Harry Inglis (1786–1855), second baronet, was an evangelical politician, loosely associated with the Clapham Sect, a large part of his parliamentary career dominated by his fierce opposition to Catholic emancipation, but nevertheless a man of wide literary, historical, and scientific interests, fellow of the Royal Society and the Society of Antiquaries, trustee of the British Museum and professor of antiquity at the Royal Academy, who also took a strong interest in Indian affairs. He had a wide and eclectic circle of friends. The titles are: The Adventures of Hajii Baba, of Ispahan, 1824 (3 vol., vol. 1 only with half-title, lacking in vol. 2 & 3; title in vol. 1 and a few other leaves very lightly soiled); The Adventures of Hajii Baba, of Ispahan, in England, 1828 (2 vols., without half-title in vol. 2, all called-for, but with final imprint leaf in vol. 1); Zohrab the Hostage, 1832 (3 vols., without initial advert leaf or half-titles in vol. 2 & 3); Ayesha, the Maid of Kars, 1834 (3 vols.); Abel Allnutt, A Novel, 1837 (3 vols., vol. 1 without half-title); The Mirza, 1841 (3 vols., half-titles); Martin Toutrond: A Frenchman in London in 1831, 1849 (half-title, etched frontis & wood-engraved illustrations by Measom, frontis lightly browned at edges); MORIER, Sir James Justinian, editor. The Banished: a Swabian Historical Tale, 1839 (3 vols., vol. 2 & 3 lacking half-titles, vol. 3 also 4pp. publisher's catalogue at end); St. Roche. A Romance, from the German, 1847 (3 vols., half-titles, genealogical table at end of vol. 3).

Alluisetti, D.K. Bonatti, Giuseppe Castellini, and A. Biasoli.

The remaining plates are focused mainly on architectural views and the exquisite craftsmanship of the pulpit, mosaics, details, sarcophagi, and bas reliefs. Hard to find complete with hand coloring.

        CRITICAL INQUIRY INTO ANTIENT ARMOUR, as it existed in Europe, but particularly in England, from the Norman Conquest to the reign of King Charles II: With a Glossary of Military Terms of the Middle Ages

      London Robert Jennings 1824 - 3 volumes. First edition. Illustrated with 80 engraved plates, including 71 hand-coloured and with 27 very large illustrated and historiated chapter initials hand-coloured and heightened in gold. Folio, contemporary half crimson morocco over marbled boards, lettered in gilt on the spines between raised bands. 20, lxxvii, 206; 297; 147, glossary. A very handsome and unusually nice set in rare contemporary morocco backed marbled boards, very fresh and clean internally. The bindings are bright, clean and well preserved with very little evidence of age, just a bit of minor shelf or age wear. RARE FIRST AND BEST EDITION OF THE GREATEST COLOUR PLATE BOOK ON ARMOUR EVER PRODUCED, RARE IN CONTEMPORARY BINDING. Meyrick’s laborious work was practically the first on the subject and remains an authority even today. Meyrick considered armour in general to have important connections with many aspects of society: "With the history of the wars of mankind, obviously, and from the remotest periods, it is connected; with the mythology and sacred rites of almost all nations and religions; with the rise and progress of a large portion of the arts; with questions of jurisprudence and civil polity; and with some of the most favorite amusements of all ranks in antient, as well as modern, times" (preface). Meyrick demonstrates the significance of armor throughout history by including both carefully detailed textual outlines and profuse and stunning illustrations, many hand-colored and edged in gilt or silver. Meyrick was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1810 and for some years contributed to the "Archæologia." In 1826 he was consulted by the authorities at the Tower of London as to the arrangement of the national collection of arms and armor, and in 1828, at the command of George IV, he arranged the collection at Windsor Castle. This is still considered one of his most important works, rarely found in such a well-preserved unsophisticated state. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Rosa Bifera alba / Rosier des quatre Saisons à fleurs blanches [White variety of Autumn Damask Rose]

      Firmin Didot, Paris 1824 - 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. Stipple engraving printed in black, after Redouté, printed by Rémond. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Bibliotheca Britannica

      Edinburgh - Archibald Constable and Company 1824 - Four leatherbound volumes with marble paper covered boards, gilt foredge,and marble paper pastedowns. Dr Robert Watt (bapt. May 1, 1774 March 12, 1819) was a Scottish physician and bibliographer. Watt's first bibliographical publication was a catalogue (1812) of his own medical library. However, Bibliotheca Britannica was a much more extravagantly ambitious project: A General Index on the Literature of Great Britain and Ireland Ancient and Modern including Such Foreign Books as have been translated into English or printed in the British Dominions, as also a copious selection from the writings of the most distinguished authors of all ages and nations. Though Watt died in 1819, he lived to see the book mostly completed and printing begun. The support of Thomas Chalmers, James Ewing, George Jardine and Ralph Whitelaw was enlisted to ensure that publication would be completed. A complete edition in four large quarto volumes was seen through the press by 1824: volumes one and two were an alphabetical author index, and volumes three and four a subject index. Over 40,000 authors were covered, and some periodical literature was also indexed. Paisley Public Library holds a manuscript of Bibliotheca Britannica in 57 folio volumes. Condition: The bindings are tight and firm with all covers and pages securely attached. There is some wear to the extremities including bumping to the corners and rubbing to the leather and boards. The pages have been rough cut. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright with the occasional handling mark, and spotting to most pages. The spotting is heavier to the first and final few pages. Thereis abookplate to the front pastedown and a small ink inscription to the front blank endpaper of each volume. Overall these volumes are in very good condition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Dalhousie is considered the first patron of the arts in Canada. This is supported by an exhibition organized by RenÈ Villeneuve, Associate Curator, Canadian Art, at the National Gallery of Canada - Lord Dalhousie: Art Patron and Collector 15 Feb 2008 - 11 May 2008. George Ramsay, ninth Earl of Dalhousie, served as Lieutenant- Governor of Nova Scotia (1816-1820), then as Governor-in-Chief of British North America (1820ñ1828). During his twelve years in Canada, Dalhousie both commissioned and collected a stunning variety of artworks. Featuring some 135 works from his collection, this exhibition consists of an array of watercolours and wash drawings, engravings and lithographs, silhouettes, architectural drawings, models, and decorative pieces, all evidence of Dalhousie's unique point of view as patron and collector, his diverse interests, and his influence on the development of art in Canada. These now rare and historically important Canadian printed newspapers include many laws and legal issues reported for the first time publicly relating primarily to Lower Canada. Add to this, the excellent provenance of Dalhousie who as the Governor -in-Chief of Canada (1819-28) the top "law maker" in Canada. A beautiful set in very good+ condition!George Ramsay (1770-1838), 9th Earl of Dalhousie, Lieutenant-Governor of Nova Scotia and subsequently Governor-in-Chief of Canada (1819-28), entered the 3rd Dragoon Guards in 1788; in 1794 he became Lieutenant-colonel of the 2nd Foot; in 1809 he attained the rank of Major-general, and in 1830 that of general. He fought throughout the Revolutionary and Peninsular Wars, and was present at the battle of Waterloo after which he began a career in administration.In 1816 he was appointed lieutenant-governor of Nova Scotia; and from 1819 to 1828 he was governor-in-chief of Canada.Known for his authoritarian views, Dalhousie clashed with the French Canadian majority led by Louis-Joseph Papineau. He was recalled in 1828, and a British parliamentary committee was formed [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

First edition, a beautiful copy of this very scarce title that was so popular that it was still being printed into the 1860s. The frequent attribution to antiquary and topographer John Britton is dubious as there is no mention of this work (or any childrenÕs books) in DNB and in 1824 he was massively engaged in topographical works. Ã’The Preface explains that the rhymes in "The pet lamb" are constructed in the manner of "The house that Jack built," commencing with a short sentence of monosyllables and gradually introducing harder words./ Has been variously attributed to John Britton, to James Bisset, and to J.L. Bicknell; cf. Osborne Coll., cited below. Gumuchian attributes to Britton. Moon gives no attribution.Ó (OCLC). Osborne II, p. 694.

        Account of the Murder of the Late Mr. William Weare , of Lyon's Inn... and Portraits of the Prisoners, John Thurtell, Jos. Hunt, and Wm. Probert

      London: J. Nichols and Son, 1824. Octavo, frontispiece, 2 folding maps and 3 plates, a few spots but an excellent copy, newspaper clipping tipped-in to early blank; attractive contemporary dark blue half calf over marbled boards, spine banded and gilt, rubbed, Davidson bookplate. An uncommon title, especially in such fine condition: a famous account of the London underworld and the seedy nature of amateur boxing. One of the accomplices to the murder, Joseph Hunt, was sentenced to transportation to New South Wales, and was sent to New South Wales on the Countess of Harcourt. William Weare, a solicitor and a gambler, was killed by John Thurtell, a former Royal Marine officer and an amateur boxer, who owed Weare an immense sum of money. Thurtell had invited Weare for a weekend of gambling with Joseph Hunt and William Probert, but shot Weare just short of their destination. The three men hid the corpse in a pond. After the ensuing trial, Thurtell was hanged, Hunt sentenced to transportation, and Probert, who had turned King's evidence, was given his freedom. On arrival, Hunt was sent to Bathurst, and was granted his ticket of leave in 1832, and a conditional pardon in 1842. He died in Bathurst in 1861, and his occupation was given as District Constable. The trial was a public sensation and one of the most famous of the nineteenth century. Many accounts were published, ranging from cheap chapbooks right through to more beautifully illustrated editions such as this one.

Paris: 1824-42 This splendid lithograph of a white-tailed deer, native to eastern United States, with original hand coloring, measures 12” x 18” 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’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

        Idee zu einem Kupfer vor dem Volksschulliederbuch". Eigenhändiges Manuskript mit U. ("Hoppenstedt").

      Wohl Hannover, vor 1824. - 2 SS. 4to. Wohl für den Verleger seines erstmals 1793 in Hannover erschienenen Buches "Lieder für Volksschulen" bestimmt, das bis 1823 vier weitere Auflagen erlebte. Interessante und umfangreiche Beschreibung einer ihm vorschwebenden Kupfertafel vor dem Liederbuch, aus der Hoppenstedts Persönlichkeit und sein pädagogisches Weltbild erkennbar werden. "Ein Schullehrer, in einfacher Tracht [.] sitzt unter einem Baum, mit einer Flöte, einigen Noten u. dergl. in der Hand. Ein Haufen Knaben, groß u. klein, sitzt zu seiner Linken, - ein gleicher Haufe Mädchen zu s. Rechten; u. diese alle sieht man frö[h]lich und in ungekünstelten Stellungen singen. Andre Kinder stehn schön gruppi[e]rt aufhorchend umher, - doch so, daß jedes Geschlecht für sich bleibt. Alle arbeiten, auch die Singenden. Theils stricken, theils nähen sie, - u. auch die Knaben stricken [.]". - Nach zahlreichen weiteren Details merkt Hoppenstedt an: "Ich darf wohl nicht hinzufügen, daß ich sehr natürlich mich gern bescheide, Manches auf einer einzigen Platte Unausführbare gesagt zu haben. Indeß wollte ich hiedurch auch nur meinen Wunsch zu erkennen geben [.]". - Die 5 Auflagen, die bis 1823 erschienen, enthielten, so weit wir feststellen konnten, keine solche Kupfertafel. Über Hoppenstedts sonstige Lehr- und Kinderbücher vgl. Goedeke VII 325, 25. - Sehr selten.
