        Poésies de Marguerite-Éléonore Clotilde de Vallon-Chalys, depuis Madame de Surville, Poëte Français du XVe Siècle

      Paris: Nepveu, 1824 - A fine copy on pink paper of "one of the most lavish productions of the period" (Ray). "Clotilde de Surville" was supposedly a 15th-century poet whose manuscripts were later discovered and published in 1803. She was in fact an invention of one Jean François Marie, marquis de Surville, who passed the forged manuscripts off on unsuspecting publishers. Ray calls for 4 vignettes, while Cartaret does not specify a number. The present copy has 3, each in two states, colored and on chine appliqué "Nouvelle Édition." Rare copy on PINK PAPER. 2 parts in one volume vols., 8vo. Frontispiece and 5 plates (hand-colored and some hightened in gilt), 3 headpiece vignettes in 2 states (colored and on China paper) after Colin and others. cxvii, [i], 312 pp. 19th-century half green morocco gilt and marbled boards, t.e.g., by Chipot.

      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

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).

        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.

Plate 4* and 4 unnumbered pages inserted after p. 40. To illustrate this volume with aquatints, Ferrario chose many fine Milanese artists and engravers including V. Rainieri, Bramati, G. Alluisetti, D.K. Bonatti, Giuseppe Castellini, and A. Biasoli. Aside from the later two, the most prominent was the highly regarded theatrical set designer Alessandro Sanquirico (1774-1849) who produced 3 plates, one of the nave of the Basilica, and two works designed by Bramante d'Urbino, the presbytery and cloisters. 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. BAL 1054, Brunet 1233. Leather attached a bit awkwardly at spine ends, marbled boards rubbed and worn, edges of front board discolored from old tape removal, but binding solid, edges nicked on a few leaves, scattered foxing mainly affecting the margins, plates sharp, colors bright, a quite useful copy.

        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]

        The Dangerous Voyage Performed By Captain Bligh, with a part of the crew of His Majesty's Ship Bounty, in an open boat, Over Twelve Hundred Leagues of the Ocean; in the year 1789. To Which is added, an Account of the Sufferings and Fate of the Remainder of the Crew of said Ship.

      R. Napper, 140 Capel-St.,, Dublin: 1824 - An anonymous chapbook account of the mutiny on the Bounty and in particular, Bligh's historic open boat voyage from the Pacific to Batavia via the Torres Strait. The work is uncommon, although it was 1st published in 1817, it is rare in any edition, this one in Dublin. According to the Kroepelien catalogue, this is a new and revised edition, not only because the entire appendix is omitted, but also because the 'compilation dealing with Bligh's voyage has been considerably extended'. Ferguson records only four copies in Australian collections. Ferguson, 936; Kroepelien, 103; Spence, 'Bligh', p. 6; Hill, 138 (1822 edition). 12mo, 175pp, woodcut frontispiece of the Bounty launch in high seas, a trifle thumbed at the beginning, text block in very good condition. Original full calf somewhat rubbed, hinges starting but secure. A pleasant period copy of a hard-to-find Bligh gem

        Rosa Muscosa alba / Rosier Mousseux à fleurs blanches [White Moss Rose]

      Paris 1824 - 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. Stipple engraving, printed in colours and finished by hand, engraved by Langlois. Trimmed within platemark, bottom margin extended, bottoms of names missing.

        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]

      Paris 1824 - Frederic Cuvier (1769-1832) & Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire (1772-1844); Hand-colored lithograph illustrated plate from Histoire Naturelle des Mammiferes, avec les figures originales.; Paris: 1824-42 ; Paper size: 12” x 18” 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.
