      Published by E. and C. McLean, London 1824 - Very scarce in the original wrappers, light brown paper printed in black with bordered rulers and the statements: "Seven Plates"and "Price 18S" at the top corners. The front wrapper is virtually the title page with the title, date and the publisher printed in black ink. The wrappers measure 14.5" long by 10.5" high. The signatures have been professionally resewn; the spine is faded and sunned. Scattered foxing on the front and rear wrappers. With the baronial bookplate of *"Almeric Hugh Paget, the First Baron of Queenborough." With one page of text in two colums, quoting the famous speech from "As You Like It" by Jaques. With seven splendid original hand-colored plates by Henry Alken. The original tissue guards have been professionally replaced. Each plate features a character from Jaques' speech (e.g., the Infant, the School-boy, the Lover, the Soldier, the Justice, etc.; each plate is identified and dated at the bottom of the plate: "Shakespeare's Seven Ages. London, Published by E.& C. McLean, June 15th (or June 20th), 1824." A wonderful artistic rendering of this famous passage and quite scarce in the original wrappers. All plates present in splendid condition. *Almeric Hugh Paget, 1st Baron Queenborough GBE (1861– 1949) was born into a noble family, but left school with only £5 to his name. He became a cowboy, self-made industrialist, award-winning yachtsman, British peer and Conservative Party politician, founder of the Military Massage Service and the Cambridgeshire Battalion of The Suffolk Regiment, and treasurer of the League of Nations Union. Paget briefly worked for the Midland Railway, Derbyshire before emigrating to the United States in 1881. He established a cattle ranch at Le Mars, Iowa, where he became acquainted with Theodore Roosevelt. Later he relocated to St. Paul, Minnesota, where he was a real estate agent. He joined Henry Melville Whitney in establishing the Dominion Coal Company Ltd. in 1893 and the Dominion Iron and Steel Company Ltd. in 1901 at Sydney, Nova Scotia. On 12 November 1895, he married Whitney's niece, the American heiress Pauline Payne Whitney. The marriage was solemnized at St. Thomas's Church in New York City, and among those attending was President Grover Cleveland. He went on to become a member of Parliament and was raised to the peerage as Baron Queenborough in the County of Kent. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        A Touch at the Fine Arts Illustrated by Twelve Plates, With Descriptions, by Henry Alken

      Thomas McLean, Repository of Wit and Humour, London 1824 - A humorous take on the argot of art criticism. 8vo. With 12 hand-colored aquatint plates, including frontis, which is described as Plate V. The apercus of Alken, as he applies phrases others must have used to describe, praise and pan his own efforts, are singular in not being susceptible to easy description. However, he succeeds ably in capturing the pretentious tone of the critic in his elaboration of phrases such as "an imposing effect", "a sudden effect", "a warm effect". For most, the magic and fun is in the illustrations, in which he attempts to give literal application of these terms. The binding is a later (1911) full red straight-grained morocco by Zaehnsdorf. With gilt-fillet borders and gilt lettering and details on the spine. Also one page publisher's advertisement at rear, but without half-title. The binding has light rubbing along the front joint and there are rubbed spots along the edges and by the corners, but the binding remains very handsome indeed. Excepting a few occasional, light fox marks, the plates and text are clean. There is an armorial bookplate on marbled FEP. Tooley 58. Plus [Attributes: First Edition]

        Flora Brasiliae Meridionalis.

      - Paris, A. Belin, 1824-1833. 24 parts. Large 4to (365 x 280mm). With 193 engraved plates. Publishers printed wrappers, uncut. A fine complete copy of this scarce flora of Brasil. 'Two issues were made, 4to with black and white plates priced 15 francs each part, and folio with coloured plates at 60 francs each part. Both are now rare' (Barba de Moraes p. 762). August François César Prouvençal de Saint-Hilaire (1779-1835) was a French explorer, botanist and entomologist; self-taught naturalist of independent means. "He intensively surveyed the flora and fauna of Brazil from Jequitinhonha to Rio de la Plata for six years. In August 1822 Saint- Hilaire returned to Paris with 24,000 plants, 2,000 birds, 16,000 insects, 135 quadrupeds, and many reptiles, fishes, and minerals that he intended to classify" (DSB). Saint-Hilaire left his Brazilian herbarium to the Paris Natural History Museum, and it is now part of the general herbarium. For the parts 5-22 Jacques Cambessèdes (1799-1863), and Andrien Henri Laurent de Jussieu (1797-1853) were co-authors. The fine plates are from drawings by Eulalia Delile and P.J.F.Turpin. The plates are numbered 1-192, with 2 bis plates 63, 67, plate 160 was never issued (see Stafleu & Cowan).Provenance: Name of Dupetit-Thouars on frontcover of first part.

        The National Sports of Great Britain . With descriptions in English and French . Chasse et Amusemens Nationaux de la Grande Bretagne

      printed for Thomas M'lean by Howlett & Brimmer, London 1824 - Contemporary black straight-grained morocco, the covers elaborately panelled in gilt, the spine in six compartments with raised bands, lettered in the second compartment, the others with elaborate repeat pattern built up from small tools, gilt turn ins, cream-glazed endpapers, red morocco inner hinges, gilt edges A fine copy of an early impression of "Alken's most important work . It must always form the cornerstone of any Alken collection" (Tooley). The plates and text between them offer a thorough survey of the sports practised in Great Britain in the first quarter of the nineteenth century. The subjects covered including riding, fox, stag and otter hunting, beagling, racing, falconry, various types of dogs and horses, shooting grouse, partridge, pheasant, snipe, wild-fowl, bittern, pigeon, fishing for pike, and salmon, fishing from a punt, prize-fighting, cock-fighting, badger, bear, and bull-baiting and perhaps most extraordinary of all: "owling." It is interesting to note that although both the artist and the author felt that it was necessary to record badger, bear and bull baiting they did not hold back from condemning all three sports as barbaric. This copy is a later issue. The additional title is dated 1821 (rather than 1820, as in the first issue), a letterpress title in French has been added (only the English title is present in the first and second issues) and the explanatory text leaves are signed consecutively from 1 to 50 (Podeschi records an intermediate state/issue where only some of the text leaves are numbered). The watermarks suggest a date of circa 1824. The plates, very carefully hand-coloured, are all aquatints by I. Clark, and retain all of the liveliness that is such a feature of this work. The artist Henry Thomas Alken was born into what became a sporting artistic dynasty. He studied under the miniature painter J.T. Barber and exhibited his first picture (a miniature portrait) at the Royal Academy when he was sixteen. From about 1816 onwards he "produced paintings, drawings and engravings of every type of field and other sporting activity. He is best remembered for his hunting prints, many of which he engraved himself until the late 1830s . To many, sporting art is 'Alken', and to describe his work or ability is quite unnecessary" (Charles Lane British Racing Prints pp.75-76). Litchfield 14; cf. Mellon/Podeschi 111; cf. Schwerdt I, p.19 & IV, p.4; Tooley 42. (18 3/4 x 12 1/4 inches). Parallel titles and text in English and French, text leaves with numerical signatures from 1-50. Hand-coloured engraved additional title, 50 hand-coloured aquatint plates by I. Clark after Henry Alken. (Final two plates and text leaves with minor paper loss to blank margins).

      Buenos Aires. . 1824 - 80pp. autograph manuscript with one manuscript note and eight printed items tipped to six pages. Quarto. Contemporary three quarter morocco and marbled boards. Covers faded, spine lightly abraded, paper label chipped. Internally very clean, report and appendix in a clear, legible hand in ink; additional contemporary notes throughout the text in pencil. Text preceded by twenty-six blank leaves, with tabs for the letters of the alphabet, one indented on each leaf (one blank leaf has pasted remnant of printed text). In fine condition. In a half morocco and cloth box. This manuscript report prepared by British consul-general Woodbine Parish for the British government regarding the political and economic situation in Argentina in the mid-1820s was a crucial step in the recognition of Argentina's statehood by any European power. Parish was an experienced British diplomat who, prior to going to South America, had served in diplomatic roles in Sicily, Naples, Paris, Aix-la-Chapelle, and the Ionian Islands. "In 1823 the government determined to send out political agents to the Spanish American States, and Parish was appointed commissioner and consul-general to Buenos Ayres.After he had sent home a report upon the state of the people and their newly constituted government, full powers were sent to him in 1824 to negotiate with them a treaty of amity and commerce. This was concluded on 2 Feb. 1825 at Buenos Ayres, and was the first treaty made with any of the new states of America, and the first recognition of their national existence by any European power" - DNB. The present manuscript is evidently that report, which persuaded the British Government to recognize Argentina and impressed the Foreign Office sufficiently that they promoted Parish to negotiate it. Parish's account begins with a brief critical history of the colonies under Spanish rule. He writes: "The origin of the events which have separated the colonies from Spain may be traced to a variety of well known causes: oppressed, misgoverned and misguided as they long had been, it was not to be expected that in this enlightened and liberal age they would much longer continue in the state of degraded and odious subjection in which they had been hitherto held." In regards to the vice royalty of Buenos Aires declaring independence from Spain, he adds that internal "public opinion was long undecided as to the course to be adopted But, though the doctrines of liberty were declared, it was found to be no easy task to establish a government for a people brought up in such a state of servility and debasement as hardly to have a distant notion of the blessings of free institutions." Parish mentions various military operations between 1815 and 1820, leading to a state of disorganization and disorder. It was under these conditions that a government was formed in 1821 which focused on affairs in Buenos Aires and good provincial administration. "A radical and systematic reform commenced which has produced in little more than three years results beyond the most sanguine expectations: From a state of anarchy and confusion the people of Buenos Ayres are now raised to a prosperity hitherto unknown to them, and are at present in the enjoyment of the blessings of a good, well organized, and stable government." The remainder of the report is devoted to institutions which have been "established or promoted, and which give them a claim to the eternal gratitude of their countrymen." These include a representative system of government, executive power, a law on the inviolability of private property (extended to foreigners residing in the country), a general amnesty, and the official gazette "in which all the acts of the government were laid before the public. This was a new measure and obtained for them a very general degree of confidence." For all of these institutions, additional documentation is provided in the appendix in the original Spanish and often in English translation. Parish is particularly

        John Braham

      London, Great Britain 1824 - John Braham (c. 1774 ¿ 17 February 1856) was a tenor opera singer born in London, England. His long career led him to become one of Europe's leading opera stars. He also wrote a number of songs, of minor importance, although The Death of Nelson is still remembered. His success, and that of his offspring in marrying into the British aristocracy, are also notable examples of Jewish social mobility in the early 19th century. Braham¿s precise origins are uncertain. The favored (but specious) present account in contemporary sources of reference is that he was possibly a son of John Abraham or Abrahams, who was possibly an operative at the Drury Lane Theatre who died in 1779 and his wife, who may have been Esther, who may have been a sister of the hazzan at the Great Synagogue of London, Myer Lyon. Braham has also been held to be related to various other London musicians with the surname of Abrahams. There is however no documentary evidence for any of these supposed connections. It is however fairly certain that Braham was left an orphan at an early age. There are stories of his selling pencils in the street as an urchin (a common trade for the Jewish poor at the time). Braham was a meshorrer (descant singer) at the Great Synagogue, and here his abilities were noted by Lyon, who led a double life as an operatic tenor at the theatre at Covent Garden (under the name of Michaele Leoni). Braham¿s first stage appearance was in fact at Leoni's Covent Garden 1787 benefit, when he sang Thomas Arne's The soldier tir¿d of war¿s alarms. He next appeared in June at the Royalty Theatre, again with Leoni. After 1788 however we do not hear of a public performance until Braham appeared at Bath under the aegis of his teacher, the male soprano Venanzio Rauzzini in 1794. This empty period will have coincided with the departure of Leoni and also with Braham's voice breaking. It also therefore suggests a birthdate of around 1774 or 1775, rather than the 1777 date given by nearly all modern sources. During this period he was supported by the Goldsmid family. The Goldsmids were influential financiers who maintained their friendship with Braham later in his career and also used him as entertainment at their soirées. Their neighbour and occasional guest there was Horatio Nelson, whose heroic fate was later to prompt Braham's greatest song-writing success, The Death of Nelson. (It first appeared in the opera The Americans, (Lyceum Theatre, 1811). Lady Hamilton, who was in a private box for the performance, was reported to have been so overcome that she suffered a fit of hysterics and had to leave the theatre). Braham was trained by Rauzzini from 1794 to 1796. It is very likely in fact that the Goldsmids paid for Braham to be articled to Rauzzini, who was a leader in Bath¿s musical society. After his first performance at Bath in 1794, the Bath Chronicle eulogised him as ¿a sweet singer of Israel¿ and explained that he derived [¿] from the synagogue, though by the simple expedient of dropping the A at the beginning of his name, he got rid of the patriarchal appellation and Christianized himself. It is interesting that this positive review at the beginning of his career highlights Braham¿s Jewishness. This together with the 'inside information' which had clearly been provided to the newspaper suggests that (in England anyway) his origins were not regarded as a bar to his career. At this point, despite the implications of the article, in fact Braham had made no moves to conversion, although he may well have attended church as social custom of the time required. Rauzzini's pupils included the celebrated Irish tenor Michael Kelly, creator of Don Basilio in Mozart's Marriage of Figaro. Braham certainly benefited from Rauzzini's influence and promotion, and acquired from him the basic precepts of the old Italian school and a virtuoso technique which was thought by some to be surpassed only by the soprano Angelica Catalani. Braham created Oberon for vov Weber.

        Recherches expérimentales sur l'absorption et l'exhalation. Mémoire couronné par l'Institut Royal de France.

      A Paris, chez J. B. Baillière, 1824. - in-8. 70pp. Cartonnage moderne à la Bradel. Edition Originale fort rare de ce "mémoire remarquable" (Larousse) du physiologiste sicilien Michel Foderà (1793-1848), dans lequel il décrit les expériences qu'il avait entreprises pour étudier l'absorption des tissus cellulaires, en particulier d'après les travaux de son maître Magendie. L'ouvrage contient notamment des observations sur la respiration et l'absorption des gaz par les tissus vivants. Dans son étude sur l'histoire des théories françaises de l'absorption et de l'osmose au 19e siècle, Pickstone mentionne cet ouvrage comme la première formulation claire du problème de l'absorption des tissus; il souligne également son importance dans la perspective de l'étude des relations entre les théories biologiques du positivisme d'Auguste Comte et les progrès de la science expérimentale. 1 planche coloriée hors-texte représentant des vaisseaux lymphatiques.

        Au Champ-de-Mars, dimanche prochain 13 juin 1824,. Ascension et départ pour un voyage aérien, d'une flotille aérostatique, composée de cinq ballons, et montée par MM. Dupuis Delcourt et J.-M. Richard.

      [Paris], C. Ballard, s.d., (1824), - placard in-4 (30 x 24 cm). en feuille.Anecdotiques rousseurs. Très rare prospectus invitant à assister à un départ de ballons prévu originellement le 6 juin (et renouvelé ou reporté au 13, d'après la modification manuscrite du titre). La Revue encyclopédique donna un compte-rendu de cette expérience, qui fut d'ailleurs un échec : le grand aérostat et les quatre petits ballons accessoires ne purent décoller faute d'un remplissage adéquat. S'il était au départ chanteur à l'Opéra-comique de Paris, Jules-François Dupuis-Delcourt (1802-1864) se passionna pour l'aérostation, et se mit à effectuer dès l'âge de 22 ans des ascensions avec un certain John Richards (certainement le "Richard" mentionné sur notre placard). Il est à noter que la première ascencion qui lui soit habituellement attribuée est celle du 7 novembre 1824 qui aboutit sur les terres du duc d'Aumont, à Montjean (Wissous). Mais notre placard montre qu'elle fut précédée par d'autres tentatives, dont celles à ballon captif à partir du Champ-de-Mars étaient apparemment à finalité commerciale. Notre objet fait donc partie des très rares traces laissées de ses essais. Absent de Tissandier comme de Brockett, qui signalent toutes les brochures de Dupuis-Delcourt. Aucun exemplaire au CCFr.

      London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, Brown, and Green,, 1824. With a Journey through Turkey, Greece, the Ionian Isles, Sicily, Spain, &c. Octavo (229 x 138 mm). Modern cream paper-backed grey boards, original printed label to spine, edges untrimmed. Frontispiece and 12 lithographic plates. With occasional contemporary marginalia. Spine slightly darkened, small chip to label affecting last letter of "land", boards a touch soiled with some minor scuff marks, short split to bottom of front joint, light spotting and tanning throughout, mild offsetting from plates. A very good copy. Second edition of the first travel book by Wilson (1772–1849). Originally published in 1823, the second edition was extensively enlarged to include descriptions of the journey to Greece and Turkey as well as 6 additional plates. A popular book, Travels in Egypt and the Holy Land inspired Wilson to continue writing. He would publish several travel books, including ones on the Mediterranean (1824), Scandinavia and northern Europe (1826), Russia (2 volumes, 1828), and France and Italy (1835). "His Christian beliefs were strong and had in part prompted his first journey to the Holy Land. An upright man, a writer and a distributor of tracts, he was rather intolerant, and his strict sabbatarianism provoked Thomas Hood's discursive and pungent 'Ode to Rae Wilson, Esquire', published in 1837" (ODNB).

        Rosa Alpina flore variegato / Rosier des Alpes à fleurs panachées [Striped variety of Hudson Bay 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]

        Rosa Indica / Rosier des Indes [Monthly Rose]

      Paris 1824 - Stipple engraving, printed in colours and finished by hand, engraved by Chapuy. Very good condition apart from some minor foxing in the image. More than with any other painter, Redouté's flowers are alive, and always shown at the ephemeral moment of their greatest beauty. Pierre-Joseph Redouté was one of the world'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'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's scientific understanding of plants contributed greatly to the clarity of his depictions. But it was Redouté'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' (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. 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.

The rare first edition, in French, of this Italian's adventures in America. "[Beltrami] found his way to the upper reaches of the Mississippi River, where he joined an expedition led by Maj. Stephen Long. The latter wrote of him, 'an Italian whom we met at Fort St. Anthony, attached himself to the expedition and accompanied us to Pembina.' Beltrami subsequently traveled down the Mississippi to New Orleans" - Wagner-Camp. "He undertook a hazardous and lonely journey in his search for the sources of the Mississippi and other rivers, in which he claimed success" - Clark. An expanded English translation was printed in London in 1828, and included a folding map illustrating the routes travelled in America, detailing Beltrami's view of the geography of the headwaters of the Mississippi. The inclusion of the map in the later edition was in response to the criticism the author received for not providing a map in this, the first edition of the work. WAGNER-CAMP 26a:1. JUMONVILLE 417.

        Die Zyklopenmauer in Palestrina.

      . Bleistift, 1824, auf Bütten mit Wasserzeichen: Vogel auf Dreiberg im Kreis, rechts unten bezeichnet "Ciclopenmauer in Palestrina". 19,5:27,3 cm. Mit Knickfalte. Für beide Zeichnungen von Richter und Wagner gilt, daß sie am 20. September 1824 während der Studienwanderung der Künstler in den Sabiner Bergen entstanden sind. Sie hatten diese Ortschaft nach einer Nachtwanderung erreicht, worüber Richter in seinen Lebenserinnerungen berichtet. Die Zeichnungen sind vor der Natur entstanden, wobei Wagner etwas rechts von Richter gesessen haben muß. Sie benutzten sogar Papier mit demselben Wasserzeichen. Literatur: Katalog 76: Carl Wagner. Frankfurt a.M., Joseph Fach, 1999, Nr. 19 mit Abb.. Die Zeichnung ist ein interessanter Belege für die freundschaftliche Verbundenheit beider Künstler, die sich später leider entzweiten. Palestrina ist eine Ortschaft, die nicht weit entfernt von Olevano liegt und von vielen Künstlern besucht wurde.
