        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.

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” 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

        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.

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).

        Tombs near Etaya, in the Doo-ab of the Jumna River.

      - Published by Rudolph Ackermann, London 1824. Aquatint by T. Sutherland after Charles Ramus Forrest (printed in colours and hand-coloured). Sheet size 13 x 10.5 ins. (330 x 266mm). Lieutenant-Colonel Charles Ramus Forrest's much praised work A Picturesque tour along the Rivers Ganges and Jumna, in India is a fine example of colour-plate publishing by the great exponent of this genre, Rudolph Ackermann. Ackermann¿s Repository of the Arts, as it was known, was located in the Strand, barely three miles away from East India House. The preface to the work relates ¿all attentively copied from nature, and in many cases coloured on the spot, and always while the magic effects of the scenes represented were still impressed on his (Forrest¿s) mental vision. The reader will recollect with indulgence, that the colouring of the views which so far exceeds that of the scenery of Europe, is but a just portrait of the enchanting features of India, eternally glowing in the brilliant glory of the resplendent Asiatic sun¿. In December 1807, Forrest set out with companions on an excursion to various towns along the riverbanks. Leaving Allahabad, they proceeded through the 'Doo-ab' (literally, 'the country of the two rivers', being situated between the Ganges and Jamuna) and following the course of the Jamuna. He wrote: 'The Cane, the Betwah, and the Sinde rivers join their tributary streams from Bundelcund on the south-west and opposite bank of the Jumna, during its course past the province of Korah. Proceeding on these as far as Etwah. and taking a new direction by the village of Jeswuntnagurh', they came upon these beautiful Muslim tombs in a thick grove. Pheroza Godrej and Pauline Rohatgi, Scenic Splendours, India through the Printed Image, British Library, London 1989 describe Forrest in these terms: ¿Forrest was an officer in the British army. He served in Bengal from 1802 and died at Bath in 1827. During journeys, most overland while posted up-country with his regiment, he would make excursions by boat, palanquin or on horseback to nearby places. Hodges, the Daniells and Salt were mostly interested in grand monuments, whereas Forrest also recorded minor buildings. Although he made several journeys over a number of years, Forrest¿s narrative and his arrangement of the illustrations follow a direct course along the Ganges, Jumna and Gumti. They were inked for printing in at least three distinct shades with more colours added by hand¿. Abbey Travel 441, no. 19. J.R. Abbey, Travel in Aquatint and Lithography 1770-1860, from the library of J.R. Abbey: a bibliographical catalogue. London 1957.
