        Rosa Gallica Pontiana

      [Paris: Firmin Didot], 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 top and sides, not affecting image or titles.

        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” 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

        A HISTORICAL NARRATIVE OF THE CIVIL AND MILITARY SERVICES OF MAJOR-GENERAL WILLIAM H. HARRISON, AND A VINDICATION OF HIS CHARACTER AND CONDUCT AS A STATESMAN, A CITIZEN, AND A SOLDIER. WITH A DETAIL OF HIS NEGOTIATIONS AND WARS WITH THE INDIANS, UNTIL THE FINAL OVERTHROW OF THE CELEBRATED CHIEF TECUMSEH, AND HIS BROTHER THE PROPHET.

      Cincinnati. 1824. - viii,464,[8]pp. plus 24-line errata slip. Contemporary calf, rebacked, corners repaired. Inscribed by Harrison on the dedication leaf. Light scattered foxing and soiling. 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.

      Paris: Brissot-Thivars Bossange Frères, 1824. - 2 Volumes. 8vo. pp. 2 p.l., v, 328; 1 p.l., 359. with half-title in Vol. I only. 2 folding plates & 4 folding maps, all lithographed by G.Engelmann. 19th century quarter roan (bit worn, plate captions shaved, short tear in title – no loss, 1 map with fold tear & 2 smaller tears repaired – no loss, light foxing to another map). First Edition of these thrilling sea-faring adventures, edited from the author’s voluminous notes and diaries by Louis Saturnin Brissot-Thivars. Included are accounts of shipwrecks and storms, the abandonment and rescue of Péron and four companions on the deserted Amsterdam Island in the Indian Ocean, and Péron’s five-month fur-trading voyage to the northwest coast of America as chief officer on the ‘Otter’, Captain Ebenezer Door commanding. In May of 1796, the ‘Otter’ reached the Strait of Juan de Fuca, and the following month, entered the Bay of Nootka, where the crew had lengthy dealings with the famous chief Macuina, whose treachery and cruelty are described by Péron with great detail. Proceeding farther north, they pushed as far as the Bucareli Bay region, Alaska, which they explored and charted, before turning back, meeting and trading with the coastal natives along the way. Important descriptions are given of parts of British Columbia, Vancouver Island, and the Queen Charlotte Islands, as well as California, where Péron spent a week at Monterey on the return voyage; Streeter notes that the ‘Otter’ was possibly the first American ship to visit Monterey of which a record has been handed down, while Howgego states that it was the first American ship to enter San Francisco Bay. Visits to Tasmania, New South Wales, Hawaii, and Sumatra are also related. The lithographed plates include one of seals and penguins, another of seal-hunting, and plans of Amsterdam Island, the northwest coast of America from the Strait of Juan de Fuca to just south of Nootka, the Strait dividing the Queen Charlotte and Prince of Wales Islands, and Bucareli Bay.

        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.
